A total of 186 replacement stun guns, including the battery, holster, and 2 cartridges were purchased through a finance option with Taser International which totaled $230,159. On Jan. 10, the U.S. District Court of Delaware entered a permanent injunction against Karbon Arms for patent infringement of stun guns. This forced the Marion County Sheriffs Office to remove 186 stun guns from its officers, posing a potential liability to the agency along with an increased risk of harm to our deputies. According to a news release, to mitigate this liability, Sheriff Blair made it a priority to find a way to purchase stun guns, although the funding was not a budgeted item. Blair stated its my job to protect the deputies as well as the public and the stun gun has proven to be an effective tool for law enforcement to do just that. Included with the release was a case which illustrates why the stun gun is an important tool for law enforcement, according to the Sheriffs Office. The report detailed the arrest on Hemlock Circle Way of a man with a knife who refused to cooperate with deputies and, even after he was handcuffed, continued to struggle and, according to the report, tried to bite the deputys leg. The man was also arrested for threatening the life of the deputy. Deputies regain ability to zap A rousing sendoff BY JIM CLARK EditorAs hundreds of family members, officials and friends looked on, the troops of the 351st Military Police Company were given a ceremonial send off Saturday, May 10, at Veterans Memorial Park. The soldiers are heading for Afghanistan and are not scheduled to return for a year. On a beautiful, clear morning with a slight breeze drifting over the park, the troops marched in formation from a distant area of the park to the grassy parade area in front of the stage and between the bleachers set up for the families. As they marched and chanted a military cadence, the Kingdom of the Sun Band played patriotic music and broke into The Army Song (Over hill, over dale, etc.) as the troops approached. Various city and county dignitaries spoke. Morrey Deen, chairman of the ceremony, told them, You have answered the call of your nation stick together, call on one another, call on us when you need help. 351st Military Police company heading to Afghanistan PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKTracy Laubenslager of Oak Run, a member of the Patriot Guard riders, said his groups motto is Standing for those who stood for us.

A new painted horse was unveiled on Derby Day at SummerGlen. Last fall the Gourmet Club decided to do something nice for their fellow residents and it was decided that the gift would be in the form of one of the Ocala Painted horses to be placed on the grassy lawn in front of the Residents Hall and Pool. Karla Marsh aptly did the research and made all of the arrangements to have the horse shipped from Chicago where it was manufactured. She was the go to person for anything that needed to be done (other then the painting) including getting the finished piece hauled to a local body shop for clear coating protection from the weather and supervising the mounting on the concrete plinth. The horse arrived in early March, six feet three inches tall, sparkling white and made of fiberglass. He had to be mounted on a temporary platform and was then moved to a private location for his transformation. The group of SummerGlen artists, Pat Ford, Bob and Helen Jewell, De Stosnowski, Helen Pagano and Betty Guyer began work by sanding and giving him a double coat of pink primer. Then they layered on the many coats of paint it took to transform him. His final coat consisted of gold hand-designed abstract filigree work, on top of his handsome deep toned finish. He was presented to the community by Gourmet Club President, Dahrie Hayman on a rainy May 5 at 4 p.m. as part of the Derby Day Celebration that takes place annually in SummerGlen. The communitys public buildings were all modeled after Churchill Downs. The day finished with a Derby Day Banquet complete with food, fancy hats and viewing the Kentucky Derby run for the roses.

Congressmen Rich Nugent spoke to the families: Your sons and daughters are part of the best trained fighting force in the world. Company Commander Capt. Douglas Worstell described his previous tours and how he was face to face with an old Afghan man. You bring hope to my people, he said the man told him. I still see that old man staring me in the face. After the ceremony, the troops dispersed to be with their families, and a family luncheon was planned. After that came the actual departure.

We have flooded Pun Alley to help you learn the ropes and get your bearings with seafaring metaphors. The coast is clear for you to sound out the lay of the land by taking a different tack and playing a landmark game. Dont go overboard by barging ahead, come hell or high water. If you feel all washed up, on the rocks, in over your head, and sinking fast in a wave of confusion, try to stay on an even keel.By the numbersAt the Lake Weir boat rental concession, the manager went to the lakes edge and yelled through his megaphone, Number 99, come in, please. Your time is up. Several minutes passed, but the boat didnt return. Boat number 99, he again hollered, Return to the dock immediately. Something is wrong here, boss, his assistant said. We only have 75 boats. There is no number 99. The manager thought for a moment and then raised his megaphone, Boat number 66, he yelled. Are you having trouble out there?Legal issue?A young lawyer decided he needed a hobby. Following his buddies suggestions he went to the local boat show and asked a lot of questions. Everything seemed to be going well when he said, How do you dock the boat? The salesman replied, Well, you really dont dock the sailboat, you tie it up to a float just beyond the dock. This way you dont bang up the finish on the craft. Well then, the lawyer asked, How do you get out to the sailboat? Good question. The salesman told him. You can get a small rowboat and paddle out to the boat, or you can just walk out to the boat, if you dont mind getting wet. Oh, I get it, the lawyer replied, Its Row vs Wade.Short cruisesGive a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer. John asked his wife what he should name his new boat. She said, Name it after me. The next time she saw the boat, it had After Me on the back of it. A leak in the back of a boat is a stern warning. A tourist asked a blonde, Why do American scuba divers always fall backwards off their boats? The blonde replied, If they fell forward, theyd still be in the boat. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. A chartered cruise for a group of judges is known as a courtship. Lady Passenger: Could I see the captain? First mate: Hes forward, Miss. Lady Passenger: Im not afraid. Ive been out with college boys.Help!While fishing off the Florida Gulf coast a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, Are there any gators around here? No, the man hollered back, they aint been around for years. Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore. About halfway there he asked the guy, Howd you get rid of the gators? We didnt do nothing, the beachcomber said. The sharks got em.In The SwimTwo boys were rowing a boat when they saw a man thrashing in the water. With no hesitation, they jumped into the water and saved him. It was not until they pulled him to shore that they noticed the man was the president, who had slipped away from the Secret Service for a swim. When the President caught his breath, he thanked the boys and offered them anything they wanted in return for saving his life. The first boy answered. I would like a presidential appointment to West Point so I can serve my country. The second boy said, Mr. President, I would like a burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The president was shocked and asked the boy why he would make such a request at his young age. The boy replied, Because when my father finds out I saved you, he is going to kill me.

edge a kindness of deed or word; a compliment or embrace that comes along when that act is sorely needed. Of course I am speaking of the words, Thank you. Fred OHern sent me a message to pass along to all of you who have been following the story of his grandson Jacob. Jacob was involved in a traffic accident that left him paralyzed. His father Patrick, Freds son, is the major care giver for Jacob. Mobility Awareness Inc conducted an online poll to help select a person to receive a handicapped equipped van. Over the past several weeks I have been appealing to our readers to assist in this effort and you have responded magnificently. While we dont have the results as of this time, the outpouring of love and concern coupled with the on line voting was greater than we ever expected. Jacob, Patrick, Marion, and I would like to thank all of you who have been voting for Jacob! Fred wrote in his communication to me. In addition he thanked everyone for their thoughts; words; prayers and help. I would add to Freds Thank you my deep appreciation to Editor Jim Clark of the South Marion Citizen who included Jacobss plight on the Editorial page of the Citizen. Also, I would like to send out a special Thank you to my fellow writer and a beautiful person; Laura Smith. Laura does the articles for Oak Run and she has highlighted Jacobs story in her column. Laura has been a huge help in support of Jacob and his family. Sometimes we forget that we are surrounded by good people doing good things for others. Unfortunately we hear about the bad things people do more often than not and we tend to become cynical about our fellow man. Not only did our readers support Jacob but in addition; over the past few months they have sponsored our golf outing; donated to our Bowl a thon; given to the Patriot Dog Project; provided social events for our widows; helped feed homeless Vets at Ritz House; made blankets for indigent babies and new mothers; sent packages to our soldiers over seas; given blood and even more. Hopefully those of you who have done all these wonderful things will know that they are sincerely appreciated by those whose lives you have touched. Please know that when we at Cherrywood say Thank you; we truly mean it. Your opinions and suggestions for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen are always welcome.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 THE WIND I S NOT A RIVER By B rian Pay ton This bittersweet love story takes place during the under-reported 1942 Japanese invasion of the Aleutians in World War IIthe only time the enemy occupied U.S. soil. At the time American journalists trying to cover the story were promptly ousted to prevent news leaking out and creating panic. But in Brian Paytons fictional The Wind Is Not a River, his intrepid protagonist, John Easely, does manage to parachute to Attu where its population had been taken hostage and shipped to Japan as slave labor. At first the fog is so thick John cant see anything at all even though he hears planes whine and circle overhead. Then a rift opens up in the fog: Unarmed, he can Bittersweet love story from 1942 only watch as a form takes shape near the edge of the beach. Japanese? A member of his crew? It is clear the man has seen him. Fortunately for Easely the form is that of a young GI, no more than 19 Karl Bitburghis new survivor mate. Together they hole up in a makeshift cave within a short distance from the unsuspecting enemy. In this starkly beautiful but unforgiving landscape, for weeks the two nearly succumb to hunger and cold, existing mostly on mussels and kelp, and often risking their lives to steal coal from the sleeping Japanese. What makes this managainst-nature story different are the alternating chapters dealing with the loved ones left at home, particularly Johns young wife Helen. Less dramatic than the visceral passages involving John, her transformation from nervous housewife to gutsy U.S.O. entertainer in search of her missing husband is worth examining. Sustaining Easely in his despair and very real fear that hell never be rescued is a note he finds in the cave. Written to her lover, a young woman named Tatiana promises to wait for him because the wind is not a river. A puzzling statement that John ultimately translates as meaning that although the wind fades away, the river flows forever. Even serious history buffs may be surprised at the extent of the Japanese toehold in the Aleutians and what it might have meant had they not been wiped out. As National Police Week starts, law enforcement officers across the nation remember and honor our fallen heroes those officers who in the service of their communities have given the ultimate sacrifice are remembered. As Florida mourns the loss of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Chelsea Richard, who lost her life barely a week ago in a deadly traffic crash on Interstate 75, the Florida State Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, the Florida Highway Patrol, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Florida Police Benevolent Association and the Florida Sheriffs Association are designating June 2014 as Move Over Slow Down Save a Life month. The safety of the public and Floridas law enforcement officers traveling and working our highways, roads, streets and Interstates is paramount, this month and every month said James W. Preston, President of the Florida State Lodge, Fraternal Order of Police. The sheriffs realize the dangers law enforcement officers face every time they pull over a vehicle and they agree everyone has a civic duty to reduce this danger by complying with our traffic laws, said Steve Casey, Executive Director, Florida Sheriffs Association. In this regard, the sheriffs are proud to partner with the other state law enforcement agencies and associations to bring attention to this critical public safety issue via this campaign. Law enforcement officers who are working on Floridas roadways face great danger from distracted drivers. To better protect Floridas law enforcement officers, the statewide law enforcement organizations call upon all law enforcement officers in the state to actively educate the public and enforce the Move Over law throughout the state. Floridas Move Over law, FS. 316.126, requires drivers to: On a two-lane roadway, slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit; On a two-lane roadway, slow to five miles per hour if the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less; and On an interstate or roadway with multiple lanes of travel in the same direction, you must vacate the lane closest to any emergency or law enforcement vehicle parked along the roadway as soon as it is safe to do so. If you are not able to safely move over, slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit unless directed otherwise by a law enforcement officer.

But it's important to hang in there until all those knotty situations are straightened out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You still need to work out last-minute snags in your dealings with a rival. Hold your ground despite a perceived lack of support. Things should change before you know it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Best not to delay preparing for that upcoming family event. The sooner you get things started, the better chance you have of finding potential problems and making needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The romantic Moon Child might be reluctant to see the reality behind that "ideal" situation. But by midweek, the practical Crab emerges to help clear away the moonbeams. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Although the Big Cat might be receptive to more "purr-suasion" to get you to agree to a workplace change, make sure you can distinguish the fine line between facts and flattery. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your positive attitude in the workplace helps to get you noticed by the right people. Now go ahead and use some of that new self-confidence to help shore up a personal relationship. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you might still have to work out some problems with a business partner, things go more smoothly on the home front. An investment opportunity might need more study. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don't be reluctant to act on your suspicion. Even if others see nothing wrong, the astute Scorpio could sense an underlying problem that isn't always obvious. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new opportunity presents some obstacles that need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Delaying action in hopes that the problems will go away could be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A friend or family member's request might carry some hidden factors that could later create problems. Be sure you know all facts before you make your decision. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A setback in implementing a plan could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Use the downtime to rework your concepts and see where changes could be made. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might not be consciously fishing for compliments, but admit it -won't you feel great when your efforts are noticed? So accept the praise gracefully.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 16, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenSo now we know that it was his girlfriend V. Stiviano who recorded Donald Sterlings racist rant as they bickered while watching his Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA playoffs. And that he apparently knew she was, which is really weird. Its too bad the mystery has apparently been solved, because it was fun to think it was the work of the National Security Agency, now widely described as the only agency in government that listens. Even the NSA head finds that line funny. But in the NBA, no one found anything amusing about Sterling being revealed as a card-carrying scumbag. Everyone stumbled over each other to express their utter shock at what he was caught saying. But his boorishness was hardly a secret. He has a long history of documented discrimination. This time, his bigotry was impossible to ignore. The leagues commissioner, Adam Silver, lowered the boom on Sterling, banning him for life, fining him the maximum and laying on pressure for him to sell the Clippers. The fine was $2.5 million; the franchise probably is worth $700 million, so lets not mourn for Donald Sterling. Still, this is being touted as a courageous act by Silver. Frankly, Im not that impressed. It really was a, uh, slam-dunk. The players were threatening to boycott, the fans who buy tickets might do the same, and most importantly, the corporate sponsors were scurrying away. Suddenly, the other basketball owners were letting it be known that they would vote to banish Sterling. Whatever their motivations, it was nice to see that those who run professional sports were finding racism totally unacceptable. But wait. We do have that situation here in Washington, where the NFL franchise proprietor, Dan Snyder, is adamant about retaining a slur against Native Americans to identify his football team. Lets hasten to stipulate that Snyder, in more ways than one, is not in the same league as Sterling. Besides, Snyder has established a new organization to provide money for Indian reservations. Its the Original Americans Foundation OAF. Sterling has been a big-time contributor to the NAACP. So much so that the civil-rights group was about to award him a second lifetime achievement award. Maybe the contrast isnt all that stark. One big difference is that the National Basketball Association is pushing Sterling out. The National Football League seems to be doing very little to force Snyder to get rid of the R-word. Commissioner Roger Goodell has done little except to state that its up to Dan Snyder to do the right thing. At least Sterling is being sent out to pasture. Speaking of which, maybe he can use the three-quarters of a billion or so dollars he for the Clippers to buy a huge cattle ranch in Nevada. Hell certainly have sympathetic neighbors. He can bring V with him. The state has a huge number of mines, so theres plenty more gold she can dig. In truth, its too late to worry about privacy. We have none. A word to the wise is watch what you do and say. Everyone else is. But wait. There is one other thing: Dont be such a jerk.Distributed by King Features Synd. As a child, I was brought up just a couple of years earlier than most baby boomers, hitting draft age just as the Vietnam era was beginning. With a wife and a child in the mid-1960s, I wasnt drafted, but I had friends who were. Two of those young men died over there, one in combat and the other on a shipboard fire. That led a lot of us to ask Why? We werent that far removed from World War II when I was a little boy, and my father and uncle, I knew, were proud to have served in defending our freedom. But as a 6-year-old, I saw the fear in my familys eyes when Korea broke out, fear that was part of worrying that our family members might have to go back in the military. They were asking why we were even there, since Korea wasnt a threat to us. They didnt have to go, but then came the Vietnam era, and the same talk had now spread to the nations colleges and neighborhoods, wondering why we were in a small country that posed no direct threat to us. I thought of all this Saturday when I stood at Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala during the deployment ceremony for the 351st Military Police Company, which is headed to Afghanistan for a year. Despite an impassioned talk by the commander of the unit, who told of meeting the Afghan people and how they wanted us there, I found myself asking that old question. Why? Please understand I am, in no way, criticizing the soldiers. They are volunteers, they are following orders and they are serving our country. As the commander stated, things have changed over the years. Back in those days people spit on the soldiers, called them baby killers and other things. Now we honor the men who go and serve, and we dont really question the way they do it. Im not asking why they are there, Im only asking why they are bound for this particular country. Yes, the people of Afghanistan need help against the Taliban. But people in a lot of other countries need help, too. The innocent people in places such as Syria, Ukraine, and Sudan are just as bad off as the Afghans. And dont you think we should be in Nigeria, helping look for those missing girls? Frankly, Id more like to see the National Guard living up to its title, guarding our nation. Should our troops maybe be deployed across the Southwest, along the border with Mexico, to stop the influx of illegal aliens and curb the drug smuggling? Should our troops be going into the areas of the country devastated by recent violent weather, helping those who have been displaced? Should our troops be deployed in Los Angeles to clean out the gangs that have taken over the culture in part of that major city? Those, to me, would be alternatives to Afghanistan that I could support. Its nice that we help people the world over, but lets help some of our people here at home. Im sure there were a lot of wives, husbands, mothers, fathers and children who went to bed this weekend but had a restless sleep, knowing their loved ones were heading for Asia. And Im sure as they tossed and turned in their beds, many were thinking that same word that many of us thought about 50 years ago.

In a news release, the FHP offers safety tips to drivers of vehicles: Always allow a motorcyclist the full lane width; never try to share a lane. Be on the lookout for motorcyclists. Check for motorcycles by looking in your mirrors and blind spots before entering or leaving a lane of traffic and at intersections. Do not tailgate. Allow more following distance when following a motorcycle, so the motorcyclist has enough time to maneuver or stop in an emergency. Dont drive distracted. Drive sober. The FHP also released the following tips for motorcyclists: Be alert drowsy driving can impair your ability to react. Drive sober. Inspect your motorcycle before each ride. Know the local traffic laws and rules of the road and obey them. Make sure you can be seen, wear bright clothing to increase visibility. Plan your route in advance and coordinate it with the other riders when riding in a group. Wear appropriate gear. These are all very nice, practical suggestions. Drivers of both vehicles and motorcyclists should be aware of them and follow the suggestions. But motorcyclists need to understand the laws of physics, you know, that class you slept through in high school. They need to study mass. Its very simple. A car can be five feet wide; a motorcycle can be about a foot wide as it approaches on the road. Which do you think you will be able to see easier a foot-wide cycle or a five-foot-wide car? We have always believed it when people involved in an accident with a motorcycle say afterward, I just didnt see it. Motorcyclists need to be aware that they are not as easily visible on the road, and they should be cautious when approaching intersections. Its not that people dont care about them, its just reality. Troopers want to make sure we share the road, and we should do so. But the responsibility falls on both parties, not just the automobile drivers. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Motorcycles: Time to share the road Once again, I find myself asking Why? Donald Sterling and other tarnished sports READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Birth rates declineIn a recent Associated Press article, fear of future economic disaster was attributed to low birth rates around the world. This article reviewed statistics worldwide, but for our purposes we will hold our opinions to conditions within the USA. The usual accepted stats were recorded, i.e., that a fertility rate of 2.1 is needed just to replace people dying and to keep populations constant. The USA has an average 1.7 children per woman, and in the past five years births have declined 5 percent, and are anticipated to continue in this direction. It is feared that this decline will have negative effects on the economy, personal wealth and living standards, resulting from the shrinking work force. We will offer no debate on any of these statistics or predictions of disaster that is better left for others to consider.

A representative group of the Riverland Baptist Quilters visited the Shands Childrens Hospital in Gainesville recently to present 22 quilts to the Childrens Cancer Center. Diane Howard, the Shands Social Worker with that department, accepted the quilts on behalf of the patients. They will be presented to the children and teens who are receiving treatment in the Cancer Center to offer them comfort, warmth and encouragement, because we care about them, said Linda Hall, one of the Dunnellon area quilters. The project is the result of two and one half months of steady, focused piecing and quilting with donated materials from the community as well as from the quilters themselves. The quilts belong to the patients, and will go home with them after they have completed their hospitalization. The quilters enjoyed making these projects, knowing they will be cherished. Each and every quilt was made with many prayers for the children, their healing, and their comfort, especially during the cancer treatments. This is a continuing ministry of the Riverland Baptist Church group, which meets every Tuesday from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Riverland Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, 19455 SW 61st St., Dunnellon. For more information or to join, contact Jeanette Talbert at 352465-0947 or the church office at 352-489-6171. Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com But the important omission in this report is the total refusal to acknowledge the millions of babies who have been aborted in the USA, and who continue to be aborted at the reported rate of more than a million each year. These millions of citizens were conceived, but by elective abortions, are not now among our working population. Lets condemn those responsible for this inhumane and cruel law known as Roe v. Wade, passed in 1973 by the members of the U.S. Supreme Court who were without conscience, and allowed to stand since then by politicians who, for political gain, will not reverse such nationwide cruelty. Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 In looking forward to Mothers Day, I could not help but think about the mess our country is in right now. Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they clean up are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terrific mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none has dirty hands from cleaning up messes. There are two kinds of politicians in our country those who make messes and those who allow those messes to be made. Wouldnt it be nice to find a politician who actually would clean up a mess? Our country is in the soup, and not the kind of soup your mother used to make. Politicians make soup out of circumstances that nobody can stomach while mothers have a marvelous way of making soup out of almost anything, it tastes heavenly, plus it is good for you. Recently, some politicians have been in an uproar and quite nervous over the swine flu situation. And there is good reason. With all the pork in Washington these days, they should be afraid they might catch whatever is going around. Maybe, and I know Im a little sadistic here, it might be good for a couple of them (okay, all of them) to come down with some kind of flu to send them to their beds for at least a month. Possibly a high fever might clear up their thinking. Plus, our country could use a vacation from politicians. We could put them all in quarantine until the danger is over. (Ill let them know when it is over. Honest. Cross my fingers and hope to vote.) Moms would make good politicians Out to Pastor Rev.

But getting back to my subject, I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions. Have you washed behind your ears? What time are you getting back? Do you have clean underwear? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you? It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. I firmly believe asking questions is a highly refined art. Politicians, for example, ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take 197 polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Politicians rarely expect answers to their questions. They are all rhetorical. They ask questions in such a way that nobody in their right mind could ever answer it. Quite frankly, if they ever got an answer to a question they would be so shocked they would not know what to do about it. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately...without delay. Question a politician, you get the runaround. Question your mother and she will chase you around. It would be more beneficial to be chased around by your mother than to have some politician give you the runaround. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is that they never stop until the work is finished. Everybody has heard the old saying, A man works from sun up to sun down, but a womans work is never done. At the end of the day, every mother has something to show for her work. It would be beneficial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or five kids. Let him follow her around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of what working is all about. Let some politician clean up after four or five kids for a week and experience what real work is all about. Perhaps, if he has to clean up messes of other peoples making he might think twice before he makes a mess himself. The only work a politician really does, is working his mouth, which rarely accomplishes anything useful. By her very nature, a mother is always thinking about others. Rarely does she take any time for her own personal pursuits. Other people come before her interest and comfort. Wouldnt that be a wonderful trait in some politician? Instead of always thinking about reelection and what can get him re-elected, he begins to think about other people and their needs. Instead of putting his political career ahead of everything else, he would sacrifice himself to benefit other people, to help clean up the messes around him. Although it may seem like a good idea, we cannot afford to send mothers to Washington and neglect the important work she has at home. Nehemiah said it so well, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3). God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

A10Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 We live in a world that is a true kaleidoscope of colors. Vivid hues surround creation, in the landscape, animals and in our natural surroundings. The color of the sky at sunset, the beauty of our fields here in Florida covered by magenta phlox, the lush, verdant horse pastures and the pink, purple and white flowering crepe myrtles transform our environment into one that is a pure delight of color. Cyndi Laupers song, True Colors comes to mind: I see your true colors shining through. These thoughts surfaced recently after having cataract surgery. The transformation from dull, cloudy vision to crystal clear was certainly miraculous as the colors of my own everyday environment took on new brilliance. Suddenly my world was brighter and more beautiful than before. Color plays an important part in our everyday life. Stoplights direct traffic and keep order on the highways, while red flagged messages on our computer warn us of important messages. We color code medicine bottles and storage containers and use color to symbolize a cause. The ubiquitous pink ribbon reminds of all of breast cancer awareness just as a yellow ribbon stands forth to remind us of returning troops. In the Bible, color adds special symbolism. In the very first chapter of Genesis, God creates the world out of darkness by creating a great light which is the catalysis tic force for the creation of the world. From this Big Bang arose the sky, land, sea, plants, animals, cosmos and humans. The Garden of Eden, earthly paradise, is swathed in green from the lush vegetation provided for the first humans. From this early greening, we have green as a symbol of hope and new life. No wonder the color is featured on the seder plate for the Passover holiday in the form of parsley or other greens. Before Hollywood even thought of this blockbuster, the Biblical story of Noah had all the colors, literally of the rainbow. The awe inspiring rainbow at the end of the story with its encompassing of all colors, combines all the symbolic elements of the colors, sin, redemption, majesty, glory, hope, into one visible sign that God would never again destroy the world by flood. Here is hope in one multi-hued package. Even the stories of the Patriarchs have colorful meanings. Esau, the elder son of Isaac, is ruddy in complexion. Tradition has it that he is the scion of the Edomites, a red haired tribe of people who inhabited Canaan in Biblical times. Esaus brother, Jacob, who receives the blessing of his father and becomes a Patriarch of the Jewish people, sires a son named Joseph. In this famous story, Jacob gives his favored son, Joseph, a coat of many colors, symbolic of leadership as only important men wore such a fine garment. This mantle woven of different colored threads spawned jealousy amongst his brothers and the ensuing story of their selling their brother into slavery and Josephs rise to power in Egypt is one of the Hebrew Bibles glorious stories. In the Passover story, the plagues take on colorful symbolism. The Nile turns red as blood, green frogs infest the land and the sky turns black and there is darkness for three days. Many of our modern interpretations of colors, have roots in the Bible. Black seems to be the color of evil, the depths of Sheol, a kind of Biblical hell or murky place of horror is colored black. Today we use that color to connote horror, evil or the unknown. The complete opposite of black or absence of color is white, which is all colors together. White is the symbol of purity and goodness. Jews use this kind of light to symbolize God and creation when they light Shabbat candles. The High Priest in Temple days wore an all white garment on the Day of Atonement to symbolize purity and redemption from sin. Though your sins are crimson, they shall be as white as snow wrote the prophet Isaiah, (paraphrase 2014 May true colors Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE18 Peace Lutheran Church, Dunnellon, was recently awarded a $5,000 Lutheran Community Grant from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation. The funding was awarded to Peace Lutheran based on its effectiveness in addressing basic needs of the local community. Peaces application was submitted on behalf of the Food-4-Kids Backpack Project and will be used to support this program. For every dollar raised by the Food-4-Kids program, from donors, between Dec. 31 and March 31, the Thrivent for Lutherans Foundation provided an additional 50 cents, up to $5,000, in support of the Food4-Kids Backpack Ministry. The challenge, from Matthew 25:35-36 was For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I was sick and you looked after me. The primary charitable interest of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation is assisting nonprofit organizations and those they serve in achieving economic security and sustainability. Fundraisers held by Food-4-Kids during the specified time period were: Something Fishing Going On, Flea Market, Bob Evans Restaurant Event, Change for Change, Skit, Tag sale, Bake sale, Auction, plus the ongoing appeal for funds.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com of Is. 1:18.) Brides throughout the ages have worn white gowns to symbolize their virginity and purity. Red seems to be the color of blood as well as sin. Red colored skin conditions often referred to in the Bible as leprosy were thought to be a result of divine judgment. Nathanial Hawthorne liked that idea when Hester Prynne was made to wear a scarlet letter A in his famous novel of hypocrisy and adultery, The Scarlett Letter. Blue and its cousins violet and purple are symbolic of heaven and Gods kingship and majesty. It was the color of kings robes and only royalty were allowed such colors. Jews take the color blue and use it on their prayer shawls in abeyance to the Biblical law of attaching a thread of blue to their garments to remember Gods commandments.

At times one of the hardest things to seek and to give is grace. It is something beyond forgiveness and offering forgiveness to those who seek it as well as those who provide it. It is also challenging to find grace in those who are considered redeemable in our society and even in our lives. Starting Sunday May 18, at noon, the Board of Christian Education at First Congregational Church is offering a study aptly named Whats So Amazing About Grace from author Phillip Yancey. This program offers all of us an opportunity to see grace and forgiveness in a different light and offers a perspective that can help us on our faith journey. This program will run through Sunday, July 27. Members from the community are invited to join us in this journey of faith. First Congregational Church is located at 7171 SW State Road 200.

Charisma, vitality and joie de vivre spring to mind when you think of Hello Dolly! and it is in that spirit that the production has been chosen by PACOR for their fall musical production. At Mondays company meeting the reading and selection committee made the announcement to membership and it was greeted with much enthusiasm. There are several weighty roles for the musical but attention was immediately focused on who would play the title role. Some estimated names of existing PACOR acting legends and the board of directors made it clear that the role was open for all interested to audition. Several mentioned that there may be some hidden talent out there in our roads, courts, loops, road-avenues, streets, street-roads....well, just out there in Oak Run. Someone we dont even know of... whispered one attendee. We want to make it clear to the interested parties that the title role in this musical will be supported with full directing and coaching. You bring the raw talent, and well make you a star! mentioned Dick Caza, director. Along with the lead, there are roles for both men and women with significant lines and song. The meeting covered the need for an extensive ensemble of chorus. An announcement regarding the plans to limit practice for chorus, so that any who have interest and not an all together open schedule could participate. Hello, Dolly! is a musical with lyrics and music by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart, based on Thornton Wilders 1938 farce The Merchant of Yonkers, which Wilder revised and retitled The Matchmaker in 1955. Hello, Dolly! was first produced on Broadway by David Merrick in 1964, winning a record 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, a record held for 35 years. The show album Hello, Dolly! An Original Cast Recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. The show has become one of the most enduring musical theater hits, enjoying three Broadway revivals and international success. It was also made into a 1969 film that was nominated for seven Academy Awards.

The event will mark the observance 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.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Swing into spring at our Spring Fling dance party on Saturday. Tickets are just $2 so get to the office and see Geri to sign up. Starting at 7 p.m., Rich Becotte will fire up the music and the festivities will begin. Rich plays a wide variety of tunes from his vast repertoire of music. If you like slow and easy Rich has it and if you like fast and up beat; he plays that too. Whether you are dancing or just listening youll enjoy the music. Treat yourself to the delicious hors doeuvres made available by our Activities Team for your dining enjoyment. Fruits; cheeses; sweets and other goodies will be spread out on the table for you to sample and enliven your taste buds. Beverages will include lemonade and iced tea but you are always welcome to bring your own libations to these events. This should be a great time for you to socialize and share a fun, relaxed evening with neighbors and friends. Celebrate the start of the spring season in style. See you there.Golf OpenOn June 7, your Cherrywood Veterans Club will host its first Charity Golf Open at the beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club. If you are a golfer, you wont want to miss out on this terrific day of excitement on the links. Some folks have said that the $50 entry fee is expensive but look at what you get for that tax deductible donation; a pancake breakfast before you start your day on the course. Immediately following, you will be given a gift bag filled with tees; balls and other handy things to have both on and off the course. After this, you will be escorted to your golf cart and roar off to the holes for the shotgun start. Eighteen holes of golf follow with contests for the closest to the pin; a hole in one prize and more. A courtesy cart will go around carrying liquid refreshments to prevent our players from getting dehydrated. When all the golfers are in from the course, they will be treated to a luncheon including a choice of two entres; beverage and dessert. While the golfers enjoy their meal the scorers will be tallying up the various flights for cash awards. All through the tournament everyone will have an opportunity to bid on the silent auction donations we have received. These range from jewelry to gift certificates; wind chimes to hand made tote bags; and many items in between. This is an open golf tournament so we are prepared to welcome both men and women from all over the county. Individuals or teams; foursomes or twosomes can register by calling John Everlove at 352-509-4428 or Richard Hurley at 873-7208. The cutoff date is June 1 so call and make your reservation today.Document shredding Perhaps you showed up last Friday at 1 p.m. thinking that you were going to have your documents and personal papers shredded. Surprise; there was no shredder. Well that mix up on dates has been corrected and this Friday, May 16 from 1 until 3 p.m. Enviro-shred has promised to be at our clubhouse. While a little inconvenient, it is only a one week delay and for those of you who forget that last week was supposed to be the shredding; this is a lucky break. Youll have a second chance to destroy any papers that might make you a target of identity theft. Friday the 16th from 1 until 3 at the clubhouse; come and shred your documents for just a nominal fee. While youre at the clubhouse, pick up your Spring Fling Tickets too.Bowlers end seasonThe Cherrywood Bowlers have completed their 2013-2014 season of exciting bowling action until next fall. They celebrated yet another successful season with a banquet and the presentation of awards. The top team this year was Time to Spare made up of Lois and Bob Crowley; Holly and Dave Bragdon; a great team with a great name. There were several ties when it came to High Game total and High Average. For example, the High Average for Women was a tie between Maria Nadone and Holly Bragdon at 150. These two stars also tied for High Game total with 220. For the men, Howard Mayberry was the High Average with a 185; nicely done Howard. Major kudos go to Roy Stacer who according to my information sheet; bowled a 303 game this season. Since thats 3 pins higher than possible, we will just congratulate him on bowling a 300 game. Swing into spring with a fling Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 week that saw Victor Ogreen come in first place. Sarah Blair and Avis Millet tied for second place and your reporter took third. Everyone had a good time although there were some hints of some shady playing by card sharks Victor; Sarah and Avis. Seriously, it was a fun competition run by club President Sarah Blair. We said good bye to Noreen Brown as she headed back up north along with some other snow birds. There is always room for more players and everyone is welcome to come out and learn the game or play with this crazy group. Mondays at 12:30 p.m. you will find the crew at the library/card room of the clubhouse laughing and joking and playing the interesting and time tested game of Cribbage. Come join us.Sponsors NeededWe are drawing close to the June 7 Charity Golf Open for the Veterans Club but there is still time to sponsor a hole. Join the businesses and individuals who have donated $100 to have their sign on the tee; be mentioned in the paper and at the golf outing and get a place to put literature for all the golfers and their fans to see.

You will need reservations so contact Marty Duesel at 352-861-2853; then get your hat and sun screen and join us for a fun day on the water. Mah JonggWhat is Mah Jongg, you might be asking? It is a game of tact; strategies; calculative power and a little bit of luck played by three or four people with tiles. Some have compared it to Dominos because it is played with tiles. Unlike Dominos, however, the tiles have Chinese symbols on their face as opposed to dots. That makes complete sense since the game originated in China. Mah Jongg is similar to Rummy as far as strategies and such but a bit more challenging. Every Tuesday at 1 p.m. an avid group of players meet at the clubhouse to enjoy this fascinating game. Everyone is invited to join them whether you know how to play or not. They will gladly teach anyone who is not familiar with the game and if you do know how to play; so much the better because they love the competition.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Swing into spring at our Spring Fling dance party on Saturday. Tickets are just $2 so get to the office and see Geri to sign up. Starting at 7 p.m., Rich Becotte will fire up the music and the festivities will begin. Rich plays a wide variety of tunes from his vast repertoire of music. If you like slow and easy Rich has it and if you like fast and up beat; he plays that too. Whether you are dancing or just listening youll enjoy the music. Treat yourself to the delicious hors doeuvres made available by our Activities Team for your dining enjoyment.

This should be a great time for you to socialize and share a fun, relaxed evening with neighbors and friends. Celebrate the start of the spring season in style. See you there.Golf OpenOn June 7, your Cherrywood Veterans Club will host its first Charity Golf Open at the beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club. If you are a golfer, you wont want to miss out on this terrific day of excitement on the links. Some folks have said that the $50 entry fee is expensive but look at what you get for that tax deductible donation; a pancake breakfast before you start your day on the course. Immediately following, you will be given a gift bag filled with tees; balls and other handy things to have both on and off the course. After this, you will be escorted to your golf cart and roar off to the holes for the shotgun start. Eighteen holes of golf follow with contests for the closest to the pin; a hole in one prize and more. A courtesy cart will go around carrying liquid refreshments to prevent our players from getting dehydrated. When all the golfers are in from the course, they will be treated to a luncheon including a choice of two entres; beverage and dessert. While the golfers enjoy their meal the scorers will be tallying up the various flights for cash awards. All through the tournament everyone will have an opportunity to bid on the silent auction donations we have received. These range from jewelry to gift certificates; wind chimes to hand made tote bags; and many items in between. This is an open golf tournament so we are prepared to welcome both men and women from all over the county. Individuals or teams; foursomes or twosomes can register by calling John Everlove at 352-509-4428 or Richard Hurley at 873-7208. The cutoff date is June 1 so call and make your reservation today.Document shredding Perhaps you showed up last Friday at 1 p.m. thinking that you were going to have your documents and personal papers shredded. Surprise; there was no shredder. Well that mix up on dates has been corrected and this Friday, May 16 from 1 until 3 p.m. Enviro-shred has promised to be at our clubhouse. While a little inconvenient, it is only a one week delay and for those of you who forget that last week was supposed to be the shredding; this is a lucky break. Youll have a second chance to destroy any papers that might make you a target of identity theft. Friday the 16th from 1 until 3 at the clubhouse; come and shred your documents for just a nominal fee. While youre at the clubhouse, pick up your Spring Fling Tickets too.Bowlers end seasonThe Cherrywood Bowlers have completed their 2013-2014 season of exciting bowling action until next fall. They celebrated yet another successful season with a banquet and the presentation of awards. The top team this year was Time to Spare made up of Lois and Bob Crowley; Holly and Dave Bragdon; a great team with a great name. There were several ties when it came to High Game total and High Average. For example, the High Average for Women was a tie between Maria Nadone and Holly Bragdon at 150. These two stars also tied for High Game total with 220. For the men, Howard Mayberry was the High Average with a 185; nicely done Howard. Major kudos go to Roy Stacer who according to my information sheet; bowled a 303 game this season. Since thats 3 pins higher than possible, we will just congratulate him on bowling a 300 game. Swing into spring with a fling Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 week that saw Victor Ogreen come in first place. Sarah Blair and Avis Millet tied for second place and your reporter took third. Everyone had a good time although there were some hints of some shady playing by card sharks Victor; Sarah and Avis. Seriously, it was a fun competition run by club President Sarah Blair. We said good bye to Noreen Brown as she headed back up north along with some other snow birds. There is always room for more players and everyone is welcome to come out and learn the game or play with this crazy group. Mondays at 12:30 p.m. you will find the crew at the library/card room of the clubhouse laughing and joking and playing the interesting and time tested game of Cribbage.

The event will mark the observance 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.

Red seems to be the color of blood as well as sin. Red colored skin conditions often referred to in the Bible as leprosy were thought to be a result of divine judgment. Nathanial Hawthorne liked that idea when Hester Prynne was made to wear a scarlet letter A in his famous novel of hypocrisy and adultery, The Scarlett Letter. Blue and its cousins violet and purple are symbolic of heaven and Gods kingship and majesty. It was the color of kings robes and only royalty were allowed such colors. Jews take the color blue and use it on their prayer shawls in abeyance to the Biblical law of attaching a thread of blue to their garments to remember Gods commandments. The color now is an integral part of the Israeli flag with its colors of blue (for Heaven) and white (for purity). Let us all take in the wonderful colors of creation as only the Creator could have conceived. Sing your song, Cyndi.

At times one of the hardest things to seek and to give is grace. It is something beyond forgiveness and offering forgiveness to those who seek it as well as those who provide it. It is also challenging to find grace in those who are considered redeemable in our society and even in our lives. Starting Sunday May 18, at noon, the Board of Christian Education at First Congregational Church is offering a study aptly named Whats So Amazing About Grace from author Phillip Yancey. This program offers all of us an opportunity to see grace and forgiveness in a different light and offers a perspective that can help us on our faith journey. This program will run through Sunday, July 27. Members from the community are invited to join us in this journey of faith. First Congregational Church is located at 7171 SW State Road 200.

Charisma, vitality and joie de vivre spring to mind when you think of Hello Dolly! and it is in that spirit that the production has been chosen by PACOR for their fall musical production. At Mondays company meeting the reading and selection committee made the announcement to membership and it was greeted with much enthusiasm. There are several weighty roles for the musical but attention was immediately focused on who would play the title role. Some estimated names of existing PACOR acting legends and the board of directors made it clear that the role was open for all interested to audition. Several mentioned that there may be some hidden talent out there in our roads, courts, loops, road-avenues, streets, street-roads....well, just out there in Oak Run. Someone we dont even know of... whispered one attendee. We want to make it clear to the interested parties that the title role in this musical will be supported with full directing and coaching. You bring the raw talent, and well make you a star! mentioned Dick Caza, director. Along with the lead, there are roles for both men and women with significant lines and song. The meeting covered the need for an extensive ensemble of chorus. An announcement regarding the plans to limit practice for chorus, so that any who have interest and not an all together open schedule could participate. Hello, Dolly! is a musical with lyrics and music by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart, based on Thornton Wilders 1938 farce The Merchant of Yonkers, which Wilder revised and retitled The Matchmaker in 1955. Hello, Dolly! was first produced on Broadway by David Merrick in 1964, winning a record 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, a record held for 35 years. The show album Hello, Dolly! An Original Cast Recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. The show has become one of the most enduring musical theater hits, enjoying three Broadway revivals and international success. It was also made into a 1969 film that was nominated for seven Academy Awards.

But getting back to my subject, I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions. Have you washed behind your ears? What time are you getting back? Do you have clean underwear? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you? It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. I firmly believe asking questions is a highly refined art. Politicians, for example, ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take 197 polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Politicians rarely expect answers to their questions. They are all rhetorical. They ask questions in such a way that nobody in their right mind could ever answer it. Quite frankly, if they ever got an answer to a question they would be so shocked they would not know what to do about it. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately...without delay. Question a politician, you get the runaround. Question your mother and she will chase you around. It would be more beneficial to be chased around by your mother than to have some politician give you the runaround. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is that they never stop until the work is finished. Everybody has heard the old saying, A man works from sun up to sun down, but a womans work is never done. At the end of the day, every mother has something to show for her work. It would be beneficial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or five kids. Let him follow her around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of what working is all about. Let some politician clean up after four or five kids for a week and experience what real work is all about. Perhaps, if he has to clean up messes of other peoples making he might think twice before he makes a mess himself. The only work a politician really does, is working his mouth, which rarely accomplishes anything useful. By her very nature, a mother is always thinking about others. Rarely does she take any time for her own personal pursuits. Other people come before her interest and comfort. Wouldnt that be a wonderful trait in some politician? Instead of always thinking about reelection and what can get him re-elected, he begins to think about other people and their needs. Instead of putting his political career ahead of everything else, he would sacrifice himself to benefit other people, to help clean up the messes around him. Although it may seem like a good idea, we cannot afford to send mothers to Washington and neglect the important work she has at home. Nehemiah said it so well, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3). God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Vivid hues surround creation, in the landscape, animals and in our natural surroundings. The color of the sky at sunset, the beauty of our fields here in Florida covered by magenta phlox, the lush, verdant horse pastures and the pink, purple and white flowering crepe myrtles transform our environment into one that is a pure delight of color. Cyndi Laupers song, True Colors comes to mind: I see your true colors shining through. These thoughts surfaced recently after having cataract surgery. The transformation from dull, cloudy vision to crystal clear was certainly miraculous as the colors of my own everyday environment took on new brilliance. Suddenly my world was brighter and more beautiful than before. Color plays an important part in our everyday life. Stoplights direct traffic and keep order on the highways, while red flagged messages on our computer warn us of important messages. We color code medicine bottles and storage containers and use color to symbolize a cause. The ubiquitous pink ribbon reminds of all of breast cancer awareness just as a yellow ribbon stands forth to remind us of returning troops. In the Bible, color adds special symbolism. In the very first chapter of Genesis, God creates the world out of darkness by creating a great light which is the catalysis tic force for the creation of the world. From this Big Bang arose the sky, land, sea, plants, animals, cosmos and humans. The Garden of Eden, earthly paradise, is swathed in green from the lush vegetation provided for the first humans. From this early greening, we have green as a symbol of hope and new life. No wonder the color is featured on the seder plate for the Passover holiday in the form of parsley or other greens. Before Hollywood even thought of this blockbuster, the Biblical story of Noah had all the colors, literally of the rainbow. The awe inspiring rainbow at the end of the story with its encompassing of all colors, combines all the symbolic elements of the colors, sin, redemption, majesty, glory, hope, into one visible sign that God would never again destroy the world by flood. Here is hope in one multi-hued package. Even the stories of the Patriarchs have colorful meanings. Esau, the elder son of Isaac, is ruddy in complexion. Tradition has it that he is the scion of the Edomites, a red haired tribe of people who inhabited Canaan in Biblical times. Esaus brother, Jacob, who receives the blessing of his father and becomes a Patriarch of the Jewish people, sires a son named Joseph. In this famous story, Jacob gives his favored son, Joseph, a coat of many colors, symbolic of leadership as only important men wore such a fine garment. This mantle woven of different colored threads spawned jealousy amongst his brothers and the ensuing story of their selling their brother into slavery and Josephs rise to power in Egypt is one of the Hebrew Bibles glorious stories. In the Passover story, the plagues take on colorful symbolism. The Nile turns red as blood, green frogs infest the land and the sky turns black and there is darkness for three days. Many of our modern interpretations of colors, have roots in the Bible. Black seems to be the color of evil, the depths of Sheol, a kind of Biblical hell or murky place of horror is colored black. Today we use that color to connote horror, evil or the unknown. The complete opposite of black or absence of color is white, which is all colors together. White is the symbol of purity and goodness. Jews use this kind of light to symbolize God and creation when they light Shabbat candles. The High Priest in Temple days wore an all white garment on the Day of Atonement to symbolize purity and redemption from sin. Though your sins are crimson, they shall be as white as snow wrote the prophet Isaiah, (paraphrase 2014 May true colors Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE18 Peace Lutheran Church, Dunnellon, was recently awarded a $5,000 Lutheran Community Grant from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation.

A representative group of the Riverland Baptist Quilters visited the Shands Childrens Hospital in Gainesville recently to present 22 quilts to the Childrens Cancer Center. Diane Howard, the Shands Social Worker with that department, accepted the quilts on behalf of the patients. They will be presented to the children and teens who are receiving treatment in the Cancer Center to offer them comfort, warmth and encouragement, because we care about them, said Linda Hall, one of the Dunnellon area quilters. The project is the result of two and one half months of steady, focused piecing and quilting with donated materials from the community as well as from the quilters themselves. The quilts belong to the patients, and will go home with them after they have completed their hospitalization. The quilters enjoyed making these projects, knowing they will be cherished. Each and every quilt was made with many prayers for the children, their healing, and their comfort, especially during the cancer treatments.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com But the important omission in this report is the total refusal to acknowledge the millions of babies who have been aborted in the USA, and who continue to be aborted at the reported rate of more than a million each year. These millions of citizens were conceived, but by elective abortions, are not now among our working population. Lets condemn those responsible for this inhumane and cruel law known as Roe v. Wade, passed in 1973 by the members of the U.S. Supreme Court who were without conscience, and allowed to stand since then by politicians who, for political gain, will not reverse such nationwide cruelty. Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 In looking forward to Mothers Day, I could not help but think about the mess our country is in right now. Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they clean up are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terrific mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none has dirty hands from cleaning up messes. There are two kinds of politicians in our country those who make messes and those who allow those messes to be made. Wouldnt it be nice to find a politician who actually would clean up a mess? Our country is in the soup, and not the kind of soup your mother used to make. Politicians make soup out of circumstances that nobody can stomach while mothers have a marvelous way of making soup out of almost anything, it tastes heavenly, plus it is good for you. Recently, some politicians have been in an uproar and quite nervous over the swine flu situation. And there is good reason. With all the pork in Washington these days, they should be afraid they might catch whatever is going around. Maybe, and I know Im a little sadistic here, it might be good for a couple of them (okay, all of them) to come down with some kind of flu to send them to their beds for at least a month. Possibly a high fever might clear up their thinking. Plus, our country could use a vacation from politicians. We could put them all in quarantine until the danger is over. (Ill let them know when it is over. Honest. Cross my fingers and hope to vote.) Moms would make good politicians Out to Pastor Rev.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 16, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenSo now we know that it was his girlfriend V. Stiviano who recorded Donald Sterlings racist rant as they bickered while watching his Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA playoffs. And that he apparently knew she was, which is really weird. Its too bad the mystery has apparently been solved, because it was fun to think it was the work of the National Security Agency, now widely described as the only agency in government that listens. Even the NSA head finds that line funny. But in the NBA, no one found anything amusing about Sterling being revealed as a card-carrying scumbag. Everyone stumbled over each other to express their utter shock at what he was caught saying. But his boorishness was hardly a secret. He has a long history of documented discrimination. This time, his bigotry was impossible to ignore. The leagues commissioner, Adam Silver, lowered the boom on Sterling, banning him for life, fining him the maximum and laying on pressure for him to sell the Clippers. The fine was $2.5 million; the franchise probably is worth $700 million, so lets not mourn for Donald Sterling. Still, this is being touted as a courageous act by Silver. Frankly, Im not that impressed. It really was a, uh, slam-dunk. The players were threatening to boycott, the fans who buy tickets might do the same, and most importantly, the corporate sponsors were scurrying away. Suddenly, the other basketball owners were letting it be known that they would vote to banish Sterling. Whatever their motivations, it was nice to see that those who run professional sports were finding racism totally unacceptable. But wait. We do have that situation here in Washington, where the NFL franchise proprietor, Dan Snyder, is adamant about retaining a slur against Native Americans to identify his football team. Lets hasten to stipulate that Snyder, in more ways than one, is not in the same league as Sterling. Besides, Snyder has established a new organization to provide money for Indian reservations. Its the Original Americans Foundation OAF. Sterling has been a big-time contributor to the NAACP. So much so that the civil-rights group was about to award him a second lifetime achievement award. Maybe the contrast isnt all that stark. One big difference is that the National Basketball Association is pushing Sterling out. The National Football League seems to be doing very little to force Snyder to get rid of the R-word. Commissioner Roger Goodell has done little except to state that its up to Dan Snyder to do the right thing. At least Sterling is being sent out to pasture. Speaking of which, maybe he can use the three-quarters of a billion or so dollars he for the Clippers to buy a huge cattle ranch in Nevada. Hell certainly have sympathetic neighbors. He can bring V with him. The state has a huge number of mines, so theres plenty more gold she can dig. In truth, its too late to worry about privacy. We have none. A word to the wise is watch what you do and say. Everyone else is. But wait. There is one other thing: Dont be such a jerk.Distributed by King Features Synd. As a child, I was brought up just a couple of years earlier than most baby boomers, hitting draft age just as the Vietnam era was beginning. With a wife and a child in the mid-1960s, I wasnt drafted, but I had friends who were. Two of those young men died over there, one in combat and the other on a shipboard fire. That led a lot of us to ask Why? We werent that far removed from World War II when I was a little boy, and my father and uncle, I knew, were proud to have served in defending our freedom. But as a 6-year-old, I saw the fear in my familys eyes when Korea broke out, fear that was part of worrying that our family members might have to go back in the military. They were asking why we were even there, since Korea wasnt a threat to us. They didnt have to go, but then came the Vietnam era, and the same talk had now spread to the nations colleges and neighborhoods, wondering why we were in a small country that posed no direct threat to us. I thought of all this Saturday when I stood at Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala during the deployment ceremony for the 351st Military Police Company, which is headed to Afghanistan for a year. Despite an impassioned talk by the commander of the unit, who told of meeting the Afghan people and how they wanted us there, I found myself asking that old question. Why? Please understand I am, in no way, criticizing the soldiers. They are volunteers, they are following orders and they are serving our country. As the commander stated, things have changed over the years. Back in those days people spit on the soldiers, called them baby killers and other things. Now we honor the men who go and serve, and we dont really question the way they do it. Im not asking why they are there, Im only asking why they are bound for this particular country. Yes, the people of Afghanistan need help against the Taliban. But people in a lot of other countries need help, too. The innocent people in places such as Syria, Ukraine, and Sudan are just as bad off as the Afghans. And dont you think we should be in Nigeria, helping look for those missing girls? Frankly, Id more like to see the National Guard living up to its title, guarding our nation. Should our troops maybe be deployed across the Southwest, along the border with Mexico, to stop the influx of illegal aliens and curb the drug smuggling? Should our troops be going into the areas of the country devastated by recent violent weather, helping those who have been displaced? Should our troops be deployed in Los Angeles to clean out the gangs that have taken over the culture in part of that major city? Those, to me, would be alternatives to Afghanistan that I could support. Its nice that we help people the world over, but lets help some of our people here at home. Im sure there were a lot of wives, husbands, mothers, fathers and children who went to bed this weekend but had a restless sleep, knowing their loved ones were heading for Asia. And Im sure as they tossed and turned in their beds, many were thinking that same word that many of us thought about 50 years ago.

In a news release, the FHP offers safety tips to drivers of vehicles: Always allow a motorcyclist the full lane width; never try to share a lane. Be on the lookout for motorcyclists. Check for motorcycles by looking in your mirrors and blind spots before entering or leaving a lane of traffic and at intersections. Do not tailgate. Allow more following distance when following a motorcycle, so the motorcyclist has enough time to maneuver or stop in an emergency. Dont drive distracted. Drive sober. The FHP also released the following tips for motorcyclists: Be alert drowsy driving can impair your ability to react. Drive sober. Inspect your motorcycle before each ride. Know the local traffic laws and rules of the road and obey them. Make sure you can be seen, wear bright clothing to increase visibility. Plan your route in advance and coordinate it with the other riders when riding in a group. Wear appropriate gear. These are all very nice, practical suggestions. Drivers of both vehicles and motorcyclists should be aware of them and follow the suggestions. But motorcyclists need to understand the laws of physics, you know, that class you slept through in high school. They need to study mass. Its very simple. A car can be five feet wide; a motorcycle can be about a foot wide as it approaches on the road. Which do you think you will be able to see easier a foot-wide cycle or a five-foot-wide car? We have always believed it when people involved in an accident with a motorcycle say afterward, I just didnt see it. Motorcyclists need to be aware that they are not as easily visible on the road, and they should be cautious when approaching intersections. Its not that people dont care about them, its just reality. Troopers want to make sure we share the road, and we should do so. But the responsibility falls on both parties, not just the automobile drivers. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Motorcycles: Time to share the road Once again, I find myself asking Why? Donald Sterling and other tarnished sports READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Birth rates declineIn a recent Associated Press article, fear of future economic disaster was attributed to low birth rates around the world. This article reviewed statistics worldwide, but for our purposes we will hold our opinions to conditions within the USA. The usual accepted stats were recorded, i.e., that a fertility rate of 2.1 is needed just to replace people dying and to keep populations constant. The USA has an average 1.7 children per woman, and in the past five years births have declined 5 percent, and are anticipated to continue in this direction. It is feared that this decline will have negative effects on the economy, personal wealth and living standards, resulting from the shrinking work force. We will offer no debate on any of these statistics or predictions of disaster that is better left for others to consider.

But it's important to hang in there until all those knotty situations are straightened out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You still need to work out last-minute snags in your dealings with a rival. Hold your ground despite a perceived lack of support. Things should change before you know it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Best not to delay preparing for that upcoming family event. The sooner you get things started, the better chance you have of finding potential problems and making needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The romantic Moon Child might be reluctant to see the reality behind that "ideal" situation. But by midweek, the practical Crab emerges to help clear away the moonbeams. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Although the Big Cat might be receptive to more "purr-suasion" to get you to agree to a workplace change, make sure you can distinguish the fine line between facts and flattery. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your positive attitude in the workplace helps to get you noticed by the right people. Now go ahead and use some of that new self-confidence to help shore up a personal relationship. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you might still have to work out some problems with a business partner, things go more smoothly on the home front. An investment opportunity might need more study. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don't be reluctant to act on your suspicion. Even if others see nothing wrong, the astute Scorpio could sense an underlying problem that isn't always obvious. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new opportunity presents some obstacles that need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Delaying action in hopes that the problems will go away could be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A friend or family member's request might carry some hidden factors that could later create problems. Be sure you know all facts before you make your decision. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A setback in implementing a plan could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Use the downtime to rework your concepts and see where changes could be made. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might not be consciously fishing for compliments, but admit it -won't you feel great when your efforts are noticed? So accept the praise gracefully.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 THE WIND I S NOT A RIVER By B rian Pay ton This bittersweet love story takes place during the under-reported 1942 Japanese invasion of the Aleutians in World War IIthe only time the enemy occupied U.S. soil. At the time American journalists trying to cover the story were promptly ousted to prevent news leaking out and creating panic. But in Brian Paytons fictional The Wind Is Not a River, his intrepid protagonist, John Easely, does manage to parachute to Attu where its population had been taken hostage and shipped to Japan as slave labor. At first the fog is so thick John cant see anything at all even though he hears planes whine and circle overhead. Then a rift opens up in the fog: Unarmed, he can Bittersweet love story from 1942 only watch as a form takes shape near the edge of the beach. Japanese? A member of his crew? It is clear the man has seen him. Fortunately for Easely the form is that of a young GI, no more than 19 Karl Bitburghis new survivor mate. Together they hole up in a makeshift cave within a short distance from the unsuspecting enemy. In this starkly beautiful but unforgiving landscape, for weeks the two nearly succumb to hunger and cold, existing mostly on mussels and kelp, and often risking their lives to steal coal from the sleeping Japanese. What makes this managainst-nature story different are the alternating chapters dealing with the loved ones left at home, particularly Johns young wife Helen. Less dramatic than the visceral passages involving John, her transformation from nervous housewife to gutsy U.S.O. entertainer in search of her missing husband is worth examining. Sustaining Easely in his despair and very real fear that hell never be rescued is a note he finds in the cave. Written to her lover, a young woman named Tatiana promises to wait for him because the wind is not a river. A puzzling statement that John ultimately translates as meaning that although the wind fades away, the river flows forever. Even serious history buffs may be surprised at the extent of the Japanese toehold in the Aleutians and what it might have meant had they not been wiped out. As National Police Week starts, law enforcement officers across the nation remember and honor our fallen heroes those officers who in the service of their communities have given the ultimate sacrifice are remembered. As Florida mourns the loss of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Chelsea Richard, who lost her life barely a week ago in a deadly traffic crash on Interstate 75, the Florida State Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, the Florida Highway Patrol, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Florida Police Benevolent Association and the Florida Sheriffs Association are designating June 2014 as Move Over Slow Down Save a Life month. The safety of the public and Floridas law enforcement officers traveling and working our highways, roads, streets and Interstates is paramount, this month and every month said James W. Preston, President of the Florida State Lodge, Fraternal Order of Police. The sheriffs realize the dangers law enforcement officers face every time they pull over a vehicle and they agree everyone has a civic duty to reduce this danger by complying with our traffic laws, said Steve Casey, Executive Director, Florida Sheriffs Association. In this regard, the sheriffs are proud to partner with the other state law enforcement agencies and associations to bring attention to this critical public safety issue via this campaign. Law enforcement officers who are working on Floridas roadways face great danger from distracted drivers. To better protect Floridas law enforcement officers, the statewide law enforcement organizations call upon all law enforcement officers in the state to actively educate the public and enforce the Move Over law throughout the state. Floridas Move Over law, FS. 316.126, requires drivers to: On a two-lane roadway, slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit; On a two-lane roadway, slow to five miles per hour if the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less; and On an interstate or roadway with multiple lanes of travel in the same direction, you must vacate the lane closest to any emergency or law enforcement vehicle parked along the roadway as soon as it is safe to do so. If you are not able to safely move over, slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit unless directed otherwise by a law enforcement officer.

edge a kindness of deed or word; a compliment or embrace that comes along when that act is sorely needed. Of course I am speaking of the words, Thank you. Fred OHern sent me a message to pass along to all of you who have been following the story of his grandson Jacob. Jacob was involved in a traffic accident that left him paralyzed. His father Patrick, Freds son, is the major care giver for Jacob. Mobility Awareness Inc conducted an online poll to help select a person to receive a handicapped equipped van. Over the past several weeks I have been appealing to our readers to assist in this effort and you have responded magnificently. While we dont have the results as of this time, the outpouring of love and concern coupled with the on line voting was greater than we ever expected. Jacob, Patrick, Marion, and I would like to thank all of you who have been voting for Jacob! Fred wrote in his communication to me. In addition he thanked everyone for their thoughts; words; prayers and help. I would add to Freds Thank you my deep appreciation to Editor Jim Clark of the South Marion Citizen who included Jacobss plight on the Editorial page of the Citizen. Also, I would like to send out a special Thank you to my fellow writer and a beautiful person; Laura Smith. Laura does the articles for Oak Run and she has highlighted Jacobs story in her column. Laura has been a huge help in support of Jacob and his family. Sometimes we forget that we are surrounded by good people doing good things for others. Unfortunately we hear about the bad things people do more often than not and we tend to become cynical about our fellow man. Not only did our readers support Jacob but in addition; over the past few months they have sponsored our golf outing; donated to our Bowl a thon; given to the Patriot Dog Project; provided social events for our widows; helped feed homeless Vets at Ritz House; made blankets for indigent babies and new mothers; sent packages to our soldiers over seas; given blood and even more. Hopefully those of you who have done all these wonderful things will know that they are sincerely appreciated by those whose lives you have touched. Please know that when we at Cherrywood say Thank you; we truly mean it. Your opinions and suggestions for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen are always welcome.

We have flooded Pun Alley to help you learn the ropes and get your bearings with seafaring metaphors. The coast is clear for you to sound out the lay of the land by taking a different tack and playing a landmark game. Dont go overboard by barging ahead, come hell or high water. If you feel all washed up, on the rocks, in over your head, and sinking fast in a wave of confusion, try to stay on an even keel.By the numbersAt the Lake Weir boat rental concession, the manager went to the lakes edge and yelled through his megaphone, Number 99, come in, please. Your time is up. Several minutes passed, but the boat didnt return. Boat number 99, he again hollered, Return to the dock immediately. Something is wrong here, boss, his assistant said. We only have 75 boats. There is no number 99. The manager thought for a moment and then raised his megaphone, Boat number 66, he yelled. Are you having trouble out there?Legal issue?A young lawyer decided he needed a hobby. Following his buddies suggestions he went to the local boat show and asked a lot of questions. Everything seemed to be going well when he said, How do you dock the boat? The salesman replied, Well, you really dont dock the sailboat, you tie it up to a float just beyond the dock. This way you dont bang up the finish on the craft. Well then, the lawyer asked, How do you get out to the sailboat? Good question. The salesman told him. You can get a small rowboat and paddle out to the boat, or you can just walk out to the boat, if you dont mind getting wet. Oh, I get it, the lawyer replied, Its Row vs Wade.Short cruisesGive a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer. John asked his wife what he should name his new boat. She said, Name it after me. The next time she saw the boat, it had After Me on the back of it. A leak in the back of a boat is a stern warning. A tourist asked a blonde, Why do American scuba divers always fall backwards off their boats? The blonde replied, If they fell forward, theyd still be in the boat. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. A chartered cruise for a group of judges is known as a courtship. Lady Passenger: Could I see the captain? First mate: Hes forward, Miss. Lady Passenger: Im not afraid. Ive been out with college boys.Help!While fishing off the Florida Gulf coast a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, Are there any gators around here? No, the man hollered back, they aint been around for years. Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore. About halfway there he asked the guy, Howd you get rid of the gators? We didnt do nothing, the beachcomber said. The sharks got em.In The SwimTwo boys were rowing a boat when they saw a man thrashing in the water. With no hesitation, they jumped into the water and saved him. It was not until they pulled him to shore that they noticed the man was the president, who had slipped away from the Secret Service for a swim. When the President caught his breath, he thanked the boys and offered them anything they wanted in return for saving his life. The first boy answered. I would like a presidential appointment to West Point so I can serve my country. The second boy said, Mr. President, I would like a burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The president was shocked and asked the boy why he would make such a request at his young age. The boy replied, Because when my father finds out I saved you, he is going to kill me.

A total of 186 replacement stun guns, including the battery, holster, and 2 cartridges were purchased through a finance option with Taser International which totaled $230,159. On Jan. 10, the U.S. District Court of Delaware entered a permanent injunction against Karbon Arms for patent infringement of stun guns. This forced the Marion County Sheriffs Office to remove 186 stun guns from its officers, posing a potential liability to the agency along with an increased risk of harm to our deputies. According to a news release, to mitigate this liability, Sheriff Blair made it a priority to find a way to purchase stun guns, although the funding was not a budgeted item. Blair stated its my job to protect the deputies as well as the public and the stun gun has proven to be an effective tool for law enforcement to do just that. Included with the release was a case which illustrates why the stun gun is an important tool for law enforcement, according to the Sheriffs Office. The report detailed the arrest on Hemlock Circle Way of a man with a knife who refused to cooperate with deputies and, even after he was handcuffed, continued to struggle and, according to the report, tried to bite the deputys leg. The man was also arrested for threatening the life of the deputy. Deputies regain ability to zap A rousing sendoff BY JIM CLARK EditorAs hundreds of family members, officials and friends looked on, the troops of the 351st Military Police Company were given a ceremonial send off Saturday, May 10, at Veterans Memorial Park. The soldiers are heading for Afghanistan and are not scheduled to return for a year. On a beautiful, clear morning with a slight breeze drifting over the park, the troops marched in formation from a distant area of the park to the grassy parade area in front of the stage and between the bleachers set up for the families. As they marched and chanted a military cadence, the Kingdom of the Sun Band played patriotic music and broke into The Army Song (Over hill, over dale, etc.) as the troops approached. Various city and county dignitaries spoke. Morrey Deen, chairman of the ceremony, told them, You have answered the call of your nation stick together, call on one another, call on us when you need help. 351st Military Police company heading to Afghanistan PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKTracy Laubenslager of Oak Run, a member of the Patriot Guard riders, said his groups motto is Standing for those who stood for us.

Karla Marsh aptly did the research and made all of the arrangements to have the horse shipped from Chicago where it was manufactured. She was the go to person for anything that needed to be done (other then the painting) including getting the finished piece hauled to a local body shop for clear coating protection from the weather and supervising the mounting on the concrete plinth. The horse arrived in early March, six feet three inches tall, sparkling white and made of fiberglass. He had to be mounted on a temporary platform and was then moved to a private location for his transformation. The group of SummerGlen artists, Pat Ford, Bob and Helen Jewell, De Stosnowski, Helen Pagano and Betty Guyer began work by sanding and giving him a double coat of pink primer. Then they layered on the many coats of paint it took to transform him. His final coat consisted of gold hand-designed abstract filigree work, on top of his handsome deep toned finish. He was presented to the community by Gourmet Club President, Dahrie Hayman on a rainy May 5 at 4 p.m. as part of the Derby Day Celebration that takes place annually in SummerGlen.

Your time is up. Several minutes passed, but the boat didnt return. Boat number 99, he again hollered, Return to the dock immediately. Something is wrong here, boss, his assistant said. We only have 75 boats. There is no number 99. The manager thought for a moment and then raised his megaphone, Boat number 66, he yelled. Are you having trouble out there?Legal issue?A young lawyer decided he needed a hobby. Following his buddies suggestions he went to the local boat show and asked a lot of questions. Everything seemed to be going well when he said, How do you dock the boat? The salesman replied, Well, you really dont dock the sailboat, you tie it up to a float just beyond the dock. This way you dont bang up the finish on the craft. Well then, the lawyer asked, How do you get out to the sailboat? Good question. The salesman told him. You can get a small rowboat and paddle out to the boat, or you can just walk out to the boat, if you dont mind getting wet. Oh, I get it, the lawyer replied, Its Row vs Wade.Short cruisesGive a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

Lady Passenger: Could I see the captain? First mate: Hes forward, Miss. Lady Passenger: Im not afraid. Ive been out with college boys.Help!While fishing off the Florida Gulf coast a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, Are there any gators around here? No, the man hollered back, they aint been around for years. Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore. About halfway there he asked the guy, Howd you get rid of the gators? We didnt do nothing, the beachcomber said. The sharks got em.In The SwimTwo boys were rowing a boat when they saw a man thrashing in the water. With no hesitation, they jumped into the water and saved him. It was not until they pulled him to shore that they noticed the man was the president, who had slipped away from the Secret Service for a swim. When the President caught his breath, he thanked the boys and offered them anything they wanted in return for saving his life. The first boy answered. I would like a presidential appointment to West Point so I can serve my country. The second boy said, Mr. President, I would like a burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The president was shocked and asked the boy why he would make such a request at his young age. The boy replied, Because when my father finds out I saved you, he is going to kill me.

edge a kindness of deed or word; a compliment or embrace that comes along when that act is sorely needed. Of course I am speaking of the words, Thank you. Fred OHern sent me a message to pass along to all of you who have been following the story of his grandson Jacob. Jacob was involved in a traffic accident that left him paralyzed. His father Patrick, Freds son, is the major care giver for Jacob. Mobility Awareness Inc conducted an online poll to help select a person to receive a handicapped equipped van. Over the past several weeks I have been appealing to our readers to assist in this effort and you have responded magnificently. While we dont have the results as of this time, the outpouring of love and concern coupled with the on line voting was greater than we ever expected. Jacob, Patrick, Marion, and I would like to thank all of you who have been voting for Jacob! Fred wrote in his communication to me. In addition he thanked everyone for their thoughts; words; prayers and help. I would add to Freds Thank you my deep appreciation to Editor Jim Clark of the South Marion Citizen who included Jacobss plight on the Editorial page of the Citizen. Also, I would like to send out a special Thank you to my fellow writer and a beautiful person; Laura Smith. Laura does the articles for Oak Run and she has highlighted Jacobs story in her column. Laura has been a huge help in support of Jacob and his family. Sometimes we forget that we are surrounded by good people doing good things for others. Unfortunately we hear about the bad things people do more often than not and we tend to become cynical about our fellow man.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 THE WIND I S NOT A RIVER By B rian Pay ton This bittersweet love story takes place during the under-reported 1942 Japanese invasion of the Aleutians in World War IIthe only time the enemy occupied U.S. soil. At the time American journalists trying to cover the story were promptly ousted to prevent news leaking out and creating panic. But in Brian Paytons fictional The Wind Is Not a River, his intrepid protagonist, John Easely, does manage to parachute to Attu where its population had been taken hostage and shipped to Japan as slave labor. At first the fog is so thick John cant see anything at all even though he hears planes whine and circle overhead. Then a rift opens up in the fog: Unarmed, he can Bittersweet love story from 1942 only watch as a form takes shape near the edge of the beach. Japanese? A member of his crew? It is clear the man has seen him. Fortunately for Easely the form is that of a young GI, no more than 19 Karl Bitburghis new survivor mate. Together they hole up in a makeshift cave within a short distance from the unsuspecting enemy. In this starkly beautiful but unforgiving landscape, for weeks the two nearly succumb to hunger and cold, existing mostly on mussels and kelp, and often risking their lives to steal coal from the sleeping Japanese. What makes this managainst-nature story different are the alternating chapters dealing with the loved ones left at home, particularly Johns young wife Helen. Less dramatic than the visceral passages involving John, her transformation from nervous housewife to gutsy U.S.O. entertainer in search of her missing husband is worth examining. Sustaining Easely in his despair and very real fear that hell never be rescued is a note he finds in the cave. Written to her lover, a young woman named Tatiana promises to wait for him because the wind is not a river. A puzzling statement that John ultimately translates as meaning that although the wind fades away, the river flows forever. Even serious history buffs may be surprised at the extent of the Japanese toehold in the Aleutians and what it might have meant had they not been wiped out. As National Police Week starts, law enforcement officers across the nation remember and honor our fallen heroes those officers who in the service of their communities have given the ultimate sacrifice are remembered. As Florida mourns the loss of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Chelsea Richard, who lost her life barely a week ago in a deadly traffic crash on Interstate 75, the Florida State Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, the Florida Highway Patrol, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Florida Police Benevolent Association and the Florida Sheriffs Association are designating June 2014 as Move Over Slow Down Save a Life month. The safety of the public and Floridas law enforcement officers traveling and working our highways, roads, streets and Interstates is paramount, this month and every month said James W. Preston, President of the Florida State Lodge, Fraternal Order of Police. The sheriffs realize the dangers law enforcement officers face every time they pull over a vehicle and they agree everyone has a civic duty to reduce this danger by complying with our traffic laws, said Steve Casey, Executive Director, Florida Sheriffs Association. In this regard, the sheriffs are proud to partner with the other state law enforcement agencies and associations to bring attention to this critical public safety issue via this campaign. Law enforcement officers who are working on Floridas roadways face great danger from distracted drivers. To better protect Floridas law enforcement officers, the statewide law enforcement organizations call upon all law enforcement officers in the state to actively educate the public and enforce the Move Over law throughout the state. Floridas Move Over law, FS. 316.126, requires drivers to: On a two-lane roadway, slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit; On a two-lane roadway, slow to five miles per hour if the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less; and On an interstate or roadway with multiple lanes of travel in the same direction, you must vacate the lane closest to any emergency or law enforcement vehicle parked along the roadway as soon as it is safe to do so. If you are not able to safely move over, slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit unless directed otherwise by a law enforcement officer.

But it's important to hang in there until all those knotty situations are straightened out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You still need to work out last-minute snags in your dealings with a rival. Hold your ground despite a perceived lack of support. Things should change before you know it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Best not to delay preparing for that upcoming family event. The sooner you get things started, the better chance you have of finding potential problems and making needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The romantic Moon Child might be reluctant to see the reality behind that "ideal" situation. But by midweek, the practical Crab emerges to help clear away the moonbeams. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Although the Big Cat might be receptive to more "purr-suasion" to get you to agree to a workplace change, make sure you can distinguish the fine line between facts and flattery. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your positive attitude in the workplace helps to get you noticed by the right people. Now go ahead and use some of that new self-confidence to help shore up a personal relationship. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you might still have to work out some problems with a business partner, things go more smoothly on the home front. An investment opportunity might need more study. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don't be reluctant to act on your suspicion. Even if others see nothing wrong, the astute Scorpio could sense an underlying problem that isn't always obvious. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new opportunity presents some obstacles that need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Delaying action in hopes that the problems will go away could be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A friend or family member's request might carry some hidden factors that could later create problems. Be sure you know all facts before you make your decision. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A setback in implementing a plan could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Use the downtime to rework your concepts and see where changes could be made. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might not be consciously fishing for compliments, but admit it -won't you feel great when your efforts are noticed? So accept the praise gracefully.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 16, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenSo now we know that it was his girlfriend V. Stiviano who recorded Donald Sterlings racist rant as they bickered while watching his Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA playoffs. And that he apparently knew she was, which is really weird. Its too bad the mystery has apparently been solved, because it was fun to think it was the work of the National Security Agency, now widely described as the only agency in government that listens. Even the NSA head finds that line funny. But in the NBA, no one found anything amusing about Sterling being revealed as a card-carrying scumbag. Everyone stumbled over each other to express their utter shock at what he was caught saying. But his boorishness was hardly a secret. He has a long history of documented discrimination. This time, his bigotry was impossible to ignore. The leagues commissioner, Adam Silver, lowered the boom on Sterling, banning him for life, fining him the maximum and laying on pressure for him to sell the Clippers. The fine was $2.5 million; the franchise probably is worth $700 million, so lets not mourn for Donald Sterling. Still, this is being touted as a courageous act by Silver. Frankly, Im not that impressed. It really was a, uh, slam-dunk. The players were threatening to boycott, the fans who buy tickets might do the same, and most importantly, the corporate sponsors were scurrying away. Suddenly, the other basketball owners were letting it be known that they would vote to banish Sterling. Whatever their motivations, it was nice to see that those who run professional sports were finding racism totally unacceptable. But wait. We do have that situation here in Washington, where the NFL franchise proprietor, Dan Snyder, is adamant about retaining a slur against Native Americans to identify his football team. Lets hasten to stipulate that Snyder, in more ways than one, is not in the same league as Sterling. Besides, Snyder has established a new organization to provide money for Indian reservations. Its the Original Americans Foundation OAF. Sterling has been a big-time contributor to the NAACP. So much so that the civil-rights group was about to award him a second lifetime achievement award. Maybe the contrast isnt all that stark. One big difference is that the National Basketball Association is pushing Sterling out. The National Football League seems to be doing very little to force Snyder to get rid of the R-word. Commissioner Roger Goodell has done little except to state that its up to Dan Snyder to do the right thing. At least Sterling is being sent out to pasture. Speaking of which, maybe he can use the three-quarters of a billion or so dollars he for the Clippers to buy a huge cattle ranch in Nevada. Hell certainly have sympathetic neighbors. He can bring V with him. The state has a huge number of mines, so theres plenty more gold she can dig. In truth, its too late to worry about privacy. We have none. A word to the wise is watch what you do and say. Everyone else is. But wait. There is one other thing: Dont be such a jerk.Distributed by King Features Synd. As a child, I was brought up just a couple of years earlier than most baby boomers, hitting draft age just as the Vietnam era was beginning. With a wife and a child in the mid-1960s, I wasnt drafted, but I had friends who were. Two of those young men died over there, one in combat and the other on a shipboard fire. That led a lot of us to ask Why? We werent that far removed from World War II when I was a little boy, and my father and uncle, I knew, were proud to have served in defending our freedom. But as a 6-year-old, I saw the fear in my familys eyes when Korea broke out, fear that was part of worrying that our family members might have to go back in the military. They were asking why we were even there, since Korea wasnt a threat to us. They didnt have to go, but then came the Vietnam era, and the same talk had now spread to the nations colleges and neighborhoods, wondering why we were in a small country that posed no direct threat to us. I thought of all this Saturday when I stood at Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala during the deployment ceremony for the 351st Military Police Company, which is headed to Afghanistan for a year. Despite an impassioned talk by the commander of the unit, who told of meeting the Afghan people and how they wanted us there, I found myself asking that old question. Why? Please understand I am, in no way, criticizing the soldiers. They are volunteers, they are following orders and they are serving our country. As the commander stated, things have changed over the years. Back in those days people spit on the soldiers, called them baby killers and other things. Now we honor the men who go and serve, and we dont really question the way they do it. Im not asking why they are there, Im only asking why they are bound for this particular country. Yes, the people of Afghanistan need help against the Taliban. But people in a lot of other countries need help, too. The innocent people in places such as Syria, Ukraine, and Sudan are just as bad off as the Afghans. And dont you think we should be in Nigeria, helping look for those missing girls? Frankly, Id more like to see the National Guard living up to its title, guarding our nation. Should our troops maybe be deployed across the Southwest, along the border with Mexico, to stop the influx of illegal aliens and curb the drug smuggling? Should our troops be going into the areas of the country devastated by recent violent weather, helping those who have been displaced? Should our troops be deployed in Los Angeles to clean out the gangs that have taken over the culture in part of that major city? Those, to me, would be alternatives to Afghanistan that I could support. Its nice that we help people the world over, but lets help some of our people here at home. Im sure there were a lot of wives, husbands, mothers, fathers and children who went to bed this weekend but had a restless sleep, knowing their loved ones were heading for Asia. And Im sure as they tossed and turned in their beds, many were thinking that same word that many of us thought about 50 years ago.

In a news release, the FHP offers safety tips to drivers of vehicles: Always allow a motorcyclist the full lane width; never try to share a lane. Be on the lookout for motorcyclists. Check for motorcycles by looking in your mirrors and blind spots before entering or leaving a lane of traffic and at intersections. Do not tailgate. Allow more following distance when following a motorcycle, so the motorcyclist has enough time to maneuver or stop in an emergency. Dont drive distracted. Drive sober. The FHP also released the following tips for motorcyclists: Be alert drowsy driving can impair your ability to react. Drive sober. Inspect your motorcycle before each ride. Know the local traffic laws and rules of the road and obey them. Make sure you can be seen, wear bright clothing to increase visibility. Plan your route in advance and coordinate it with the other riders when riding in a group. Wear appropriate gear. These are all very nice, practical suggestions. Drivers of both vehicles and motorcyclists should be aware of them and follow the suggestions. But motorcyclists need to understand the laws of physics, you know, that class you slept through in high school. They need to study mass. Its very simple. A car can be five feet wide; a motorcycle can be about a foot wide as it approaches on the road. Which do you think you will be able to see easier a foot-wide cycle or a five-foot-wide car? We have always believed it when people involved in an accident with a motorcycle say afterward, I just didnt see it. Motorcyclists need to be aware that they are not as easily visible on the road, and they should be cautious when approaching intersections. Its not that people dont care about them, its just reality. Troopers want to make sure we share the road, and we should do so. But the responsibility falls on both parties, not just the automobile drivers. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Motorcycles: Time to share the road Once again, I find myself asking Why? Donald Sterling and other tarnished sports READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Birth rates declineIn a recent Associated Press article, fear of future economic disaster was attributed to low birth rates around the world. This article reviewed statistics worldwide, but for our purposes we will hold our opinions to conditions within the USA. The usual accepted stats were recorded, i.e., that a fertility rate of 2.1 is needed just to replace people dying and to keep populations constant. The USA has an average 1.7 children per woman, and in the past five years births have declined 5 percent, and are anticipated to continue in this direction. It is feared that this decline will have negative effects on the economy, personal wealth and living standards, resulting from the shrinking work force. We will offer no debate on any of these statistics or predictions of disaster that is better left for others to consider.

A representative group of the Riverland Baptist Quilters visited the Shands Childrens Hospital in Gainesville recently to present 22 quilts to the Childrens Cancer Center. Diane Howard, the Shands Social Worker with that department, accepted the quilts on behalf of the patients. They will be presented to the children and teens who are receiving treatment in the Cancer Center to offer them comfort, warmth and encouragement, because we care about them, said Linda Hall, one of the Dunnellon area quilters. The project is the result of two and one half months of steady, focused piecing and quilting with donated materials from the community as well as from the quilters themselves. The quilts belong to the patients, and will go home with them after they have completed their hospitalization. The quilters enjoyed making these projects, knowing they will be cherished. Each and every quilt was made with many prayers for the children, their healing, and their comfort, especially during the cancer treatments. This is a continuing ministry of the Riverland Baptist Church group, which meets every Tuesday from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Riverland Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, 19455 SW 61st St., Dunnellon. For more information or to join, contact Jeanette Talbert at 352465-0947 or the church office at 352-489-6171. Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com But the important omission in this report is the total refusal to acknowledge the millions of babies who have been aborted in the USA, and who continue to be aborted at the reported rate of more than a million each year. These millions of citizens were conceived, but by elective abortions, are not now among our working population. Lets condemn those responsible for this inhumane and cruel law known as Roe v. Wade, passed in 1973 by the members of the U.S. Supreme Court who were without conscience, and allowed to stand since then by politicians who, for political gain, will not reverse such nationwide cruelty. Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 In looking forward to Mothers Day, I could not help but think about the mess our country is in right now. Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they clean up are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terrific mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none has dirty hands from cleaning up messes. There are two kinds of politicians in our country those who make messes and those who allow those messes to be made. Wouldnt it be nice to find a politician who actually would clean up a mess? Our country is in the soup, and not the kind of soup your mother used to make. Politicians make soup out of circumstances that nobody can stomach while mothers have a marvelous way of making soup out of almost anything, it tastes heavenly, plus it is good for you. Recently, some politicians have been in an uproar and quite nervous over the swine flu situation. And there is good reason. With all the pork in Washington these days, they should be afraid they might catch whatever is going around. Maybe, and I know Im a little sadistic here, it might be good for a couple of them (okay, all of them) to come down with some kind of flu to send them to their beds for at least a month. Possibly a high fever might clear up their thinking. Plus, our country could use a vacation from politicians. We could put them all in quarantine until the danger is over. (Ill let them know when it is over. Honest. Cross my fingers and hope to vote.) Moms would make good politicians Out to Pastor Rev.

But getting back to my subject, I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions. Have you washed behind your ears? What time are you getting back? Do you have clean underwear? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you? It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. I firmly believe asking questions is a highly refined art. Politicians, for example, ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take 197 polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Politicians rarely expect answers to their questions. They are all rhetorical. They ask questions in such a way that nobody in their right mind could ever answer it. Quite frankly, if they ever got an answer to a question they would be so shocked they would not know what to do about it. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately...without delay. Question a politician, you get the runaround. Question your mother and she will chase you around. It would be more beneficial to be chased around by your mother than to have some politician give you the runaround. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is that they never stop until the work is finished. Everybody has heard the old saying, A man works from sun up to sun down, but a womans work is never done. At the end of the day, every mother has something to show for her work. It would be beneficial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or five kids. Let him follow her around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of what working is all about. Let some politician clean up after four or five kids for a week and experience what real work is all about. Perhaps, if he has to clean up messes of other peoples making he might think twice before he makes a mess himself. The only work a politician really does, is working his mouth, which rarely accomplishes anything useful. By her very nature, a mother is always thinking about others. Rarely does she take any time for her own personal pursuits. Other people come before her interest and comfort. Wouldnt that be a wonderful trait in some politician? Instead of always thinking about reelection and what can get him re-elected, he begins to think about other people and their needs. Instead of putting his political career ahead of everything else, he would sacrifice himself to benefit other people, to help clean up the messes around him. Although it may seem like a good idea, we cannot afford to send mothers to Washington and neglect the important work she has at home. Nehemiah said it so well, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3). God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Vivid hues surround creation, in the landscape, animals and in our natural surroundings. The color of the sky at sunset, the beauty of our fields here in Florida covered by magenta phlox, the lush, verdant horse pastures and the pink, purple and white flowering crepe myrtles transform our environment into one that is a pure delight of color. Cyndi Laupers song, True Colors comes to mind: I see your true colors shining through. These thoughts surfaced recently after having cataract surgery. The transformation from dull, cloudy vision to crystal clear was certainly miraculous as the colors of my own everyday environment took on new brilliance. Suddenly my world was brighter and more beautiful than before. Color plays an important part in our everyday life. Stoplights direct traffic and keep order on the highways, while red flagged messages on our computer warn us of important messages. We color code medicine bottles and storage containers and use color to symbolize a cause. The ubiquitous pink ribbon reminds of all of breast cancer awareness just as a yellow ribbon stands forth to remind us of returning troops. In the Bible, color adds special symbolism. In the very first chapter of Genesis, God creates the world out of darkness by creating a great light which is the catalysis tic force for the creation of the world. From this Big Bang arose the sky, land, sea, plants, animals, cosmos and humans. The Garden of Eden, earthly paradise, is swathed in green from the lush vegetation provided for the first humans. From this early greening, we have green as a symbol of hope and new life. No wonder the color is featured on the seder plate for the Passover holiday in the form of parsley or other greens. Before Hollywood even thought of this blockbuster, the Biblical story of Noah had all the colors, literally of the rainbow. The awe inspiring rainbow at the end of the story with its encompassing of all colors, combines all the symbolic elements of the colors, sin, redemption, majesty, glory, hope, into one visible sign that God would never again destroy the world by flood. Here is hope in one multi-hued package. Even the stories of the Patriarchs have colorful meanings. Esau, the elder son of Isaac, is ruddy in complexion. Tradition has it that he is the scion of the Edomites, a red haired tribe of people who inhabited Canaan in Biblical times. Esaus brother, Jacob, who receives the blessing of his father and becomes a Patriarch of the Jewish people, sires a son named Joseph. In this famous story, Jacob gives his favored son, Joseph, a coat of many colors, symbolic of leadership as only important men wore such a fine garment. This mantle woven of different colored threads spawned jealousy amongst his brothers and the ensuing story of their selling their brother into slavery and Josephs rise to power in Egypt is one of the Hebrew Bibles glorious stories. In the Passover story, the plagues take on colorful symbolism. The Nile turns red as blood, green frogs infest the land and the sky turns black and there is darkness for three days. Many of our modern interpretations of colors, have roots in the Bible. Black seems to be the color of evil, the depths of Sheol, a kind of Biblical hell or murky place of horror is colored black. Today we use that color to connote horror, evil or the unknown. The complete opposite of black or absence of color is white, which is all colors together. White is the symbol of purity and goodness. Jews use this kind of light to symbolize God and creation when they light Shabbat candles. The High Priest in Temple days wore an all white garment on the Day of Atonement to symbolize purity and redemption from sin. Though your sins are crimson, they shall be as white as snow wrote the prophet Isaiah, (paraphrase 2014 May true colors Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE18 Peace Lutheran Church, Dunnellon, was recently awarded a $5,000 Lutheran Community Grant from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation. The funding was awarded to Peace Lutheran based on its effectiveness in addressing basic needs of the local community. Peaces application was submitted on behalf of the Food-4-Kids Backpack Project and will be used to support this program. For every dollar raised by the Food-4-Kids program, from donors, between Dec. 31 and March 31, the Thrivent for Lutherans Foundation provided an additional 50 cents, up to $5,000, in support of the Food4-Kids Backpack Ministry. The challenge, from Matthew 25:35-36 was For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I was sick and you looked after me. The primary charitable interest of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation is assisting nonprofit organizations and those they serve in achieving economic security and sustainability. Fundraisers held by Food-4-Kids during the specified time period were: Something Fishing Going On, Flea Market, Bob Evans Restaurant Event, Change for Change, Skit, Tag sale, Bake sale, Auction, plus the ongoing appeal for funds.

Red seems to be the color of blood as well as sin. Red colored skin conditions often referred to in the Bible as leprosy were thought to be a result of divine judgment. Nathanial Hawthorne liked that idea when Hester Prynne was made to wear a scarlet letter A in his famous novel of hypocrisy and adultery, The Scarlett Letter. Blue and its cousins violet and purple are symbolic of heaven and Gods kingship and majesty. It was the color of kings robes and only royalty were allowed such colors. Jews take the color blue and use it on their prayer shawls in abeyance to the Biblical law of attaching a thread of blue to their garments to remember Gods commandments. The color now is an integral part of the Israeli flag with its colors of blue (for Heaven) and white (for purity). Let us all take in the wonderful colors of creation as only the Creator could have conceived. Sing your song, Cyndi.

At times one of the hardest things to seek and to give is grace. It is something beyond forgiveness and offering forgiveness to those who seek it as well as those who provide it. It is also challenging to find grace in those who are considered redeemable in our society and even in our lives. Starting Sunday May 18, at noon, the Board of Christian Education at First Congregational Church is offering a study aptly named Whats So Amazing About Grace from author Phillip Yancey. This program offers all of us an opportunity to see grace and forgiveness in a different light and offers a perspective that can help us on our faith journey. This program will run through Sunday, July 27. Members from the community are invited to join us in this journey of faith. First Congregational Church is located at 7171 SW State Road 200.

Charisma, vitality and joie de vivre spring to mind when you think of Hello Dolly! and it is in that spirit that the production has been chosen by PACOR for their fall musical production. At Mondays company meeting the reading and selection committee made the announcement to membership and it was greeted with much enthusiasm. There are several weighty roles for the musical but attention was immediately focused on who would play the title role. Some estimated names of existing PACOR acting legends and the board of directors made it clear that the role was open for all interested to audition. Several mentioned that there may be some hidden talent out there in our roads, courts, loops, road-avenues, streets, street-roads....well, just out there in Oak Run. Someone we dont even know of... whispered one attendee. We want to make it clear to the interested parties that the title role in this musical will be supported with full directing and coaching. You bring the raw talent, and well make you a star! mentioned Dick Caza, director. Along with the lead, there are roles for both men and women with significant lines and song. The meeting covered the need for an extensive ensemble of chorus. An announcement regarding the plans to limit practice for chorus, so that any who have interest and not an all together open schedule could participate. Hello, Dolly! is a musical with lyrics and music by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart, based on Thornton Wilders 1938 farce The Merchant of Yonkers, which Wilder revised and retitled The Matchmaker in 1955. Hello, Dolly! was first produced on Broadway by David Merrick in 1964, winning a record 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, a record held for 35 years. The show album Hello, Dolly! An Original Cast Recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. The show has become one of the most enduring musical theater hits, enjoying three Broadway revivals and international success. It was also made into a 1969 film that was nominated for seven Academy Awards.

The event will mark the observance 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.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Swing into spring at our Spring Fling dance party on Saturday. Tickets are just $2 so get to the office and see Geri to sign up. Starting at 7 p.m., Rich Becotte will fire up the music and the festivities will begin. Rich plays a wide variety of tunes from his vast repertoire of music. If you like slow and easy Rich has it and if you like fast and up beat; he plays that too. Whether you are dancing or just listening youll enjoy the music. Treat yourself to the delicious hors doeuvres made available by our Activities Team for your dining enjoyment. Fruits; cheeses; sweets and other goodies will be spread out on the table for you to sample and enliven your taste buds. Beverages will include lemonade and iced tea but you are always welcome to bring your own libations to these events. This should be a great time for you to socialize and share a fun, relaxed evening with neighbors and friends. Celebrate the start of the spring season in style. See you there.Golf OpenOn June 7, your Cherrywood Veterans Club will host its first Charity Golf Open at the beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club. If you are a golfer, you wont want to miss out on this terrific day of excitement on the links. Some folks have said that the $50 entry fee is expensive but look at what you get for that tax deductible donation; a pancake breakfast before you start your day on the course. Immediately following, you will be given a gift bag filled with tees; balls and other handy things to have both on and off the course. After this, you will be escorted to your golf cart and roar off to the holes for the shotgun start. Eighteen holes of golf follow with contests for the closest to the pin; a hole in one prize and more. A courtesy cart will go around carrying liquid refreshments to prevent our players from getting dehydrated. When all the golfers are in from the course, they will be treated to a luncheon including a choice of two entres; beverage and dessert. While the golfers enjoy their meal the scorers will be tallying up the various flights for cash awards. All through the tournament everyone will have an opportunity to bid on the silent auction donations we have received. These range from jewelry to gift certificates; wind chimes to hand made tote bags; and many items in between. This is an open golf tournament so we are prepared to welcome both men and women from all over the county. Individuals or teams; foursomes or twosomes can register by calling John Everlove at 352-509-4428 or Richard Hurley at 873-7208. The cutoff date is June 1 so call and make your reservation today.Document shredding Perhaps you showed up last Friday at 1 p.m. thinking that you were going to have your documents and personal papers shredded. Surprise; there was no shredder. Well that mix up on dates has been corrected and this Friday, May 16 from 1 until 3 p.m. Enviro-shred has promised to be at our clubhouse. While a little inconvenient, it is only a one week delay and for those of you who forget that last week was supposed to be the shredding; this is a lucky break. Youll have a second chance to destroy any papers that might make you a target of identity theft. Friday the 16th from 1 until 3 at the clubhouse; come and shred your documents for just a nominal fee. While youre at the clubhouse, pick up your Spring Fling Tickets too.Bowlers end seasonThe Cherrywood Bowlers have completed their 2013-2014 season of exciting bowling action until next fall. They celebrated yet another successful season with a banquet and the presentation of awards. The top team this year was Time to Spare made up of Lois and Bob Crowley; Holly and Dave Bragdon; a great team with a great name. There were several ties when it came to High Game total and High Average. For example, the High Average for Women was a tie between Maria Nadone and Holly Bragdon at 150. These two stars also tied for High Game total with 220. For the men, Howard Mayberry was the High Average with a 185; nicely done Howard. Major kudos go to Roy Stacer who according to my information sheet; bowled a 303 game this season. Since thats 3 pins higher than possible, we will just congratulate him on bowling a 300 game. Swing into spring with a fling Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 week that saw Victor Ogreen come in first place. Sarah Blair and Avis Millet tied for second place and your reporter took third. Everyone had a good time although there were some hints of some shady playing by card sharks Victor; Sarah and Avis. Seriously, it was a fun competition run by club President Sarah Blair. We said good bye to Noreen Brown as she headed back up north along with some other snow birds. There is always room for more players and everyone is welcome to come out and learn the game or play with this crazy group. Mondays at 12:30 p.m. you will find the crew at the library/card room of the clubhouse laughing and joking and playing the interesting and time tested game of Cribbage. Come join us.Sponsors NeededWe are drawing close to the June 7 Charity Golf Open for the Veterans Club but there is still time to sponsor a hole. Join the businesses and individuals who have donated $100 to have their sign on the tee; be mentioned in the paper and at the golf outing and get a place to put literature for all the golfers and their fans to see.

The Cherrywood Veterans Club is proud of its work on behalf of Veterans not only in our community but in Marion County; Florida and the nation. For that reason, our meetings are open to all residents; veterans and non-veterans alike. There will be several items on the agenda to discuss at this meeting including the pending golf open; Veterans Appreciation Day and the follow up for Memorial Day. A guest speaker is also being sought and will be announced later. These informative meetings begin at 2 p.m. and usually last less than an hour. You will receive and get the opportunity to offer input on the many projects that your Veterans Club is involved in as well as bring individuals up to date on the latest Veterans concerns. Immediately following the meeting there is a 50/50 drawing and refreshments are served on the patio.

The Second Place team; Bowling Stones made up of Arleen and Howard Mayberry and Jerry and Christl Giovanniello, had 128 wins and 82 losses while the third place team Alley Oops had 119 wins and 91 losses. Frank Pytlak; Dick Hamm and Dale Lunsford are the regular bowlers on team Alley Oops. In addition to all the fun the bowlers had this season, they raised nearly $1500 for the Cherrywood Veterans Club in its annual bowl a thon last fall. This was a remarkable feat to accomplish and one that was very much appreciated by the Veterans and the Patriot Dog Project. Congratulations to all of our bowlers and to league President Norma Alexander and Treasurer Rich Hurley on a terrific year for our Cherrywood Bowlers. Trivia NightWednesday the 21st of May is the night that everyone is eagerly anticipating for thats the night we gather at the clubhouse for Trivia. Fred OHern is this months quiz master with questions on such subjects as entertainment; Memorial Day; Sports; general knowledge and more. Starting at 7 p.m. players come in and pay the outrageous entry fee of $1. After signing in, teams are formed and answer sheets dispensed. Each team selects a place in the room to watch the questions put up on the big screen. With three or four members per team, usually some one knows or thinks they know the answer to the question. After the quiz; answer sheets are exchanged and graded with the winners receiving a small cash prize and the all important bragging rights for a month. All proceeds go to the Patriot Dog Project so your money is well spent. Your time is well spent also because you sharpen your mind; learn new things and you will have a lot of fun too. Come join us for this relaxed evening of trivial knowledge and shared laughs.Boat TripWould you like to go on an eco-tour along the Chassahowitzka River? Join the group that is planning to take a cruise with Capt. Kens River Wildlife Tours on May 20. These river excursions have been greatly enjoyed by many people in the past and we are looking forward to another informative and relaxing trip. The cost is just $20 per person and an additional $5 for cars. Usually the group goes to lunch after the boat ride and everyone has a good time. You will need reservations so contact Marty Duesel at 352-861-2853; then get your hat and sun screen and join us for a fun day on the water. Mah JonggWhat is Mah Jongg, you might be asking? It is a game of tact; strategies; calculative power and a little bit of luck played by three or four people with tiles. Some have compared it to Dominos because it is played with tiles. Unlike Dominos, however, the tiles have Chinese symbols on their face as opposed to dots. That makes complete sense since the game originated in China. Mah Jongg is similar to Rummy as far as strategies and such but a bit more challenging. Every Tuesday at 1 p.m. an avid group of players meet at the clubhouse to enjoy this fascinating game. Everyone is invited to join them whether you know how to play or not. They will gladly teach anyone who is not familiar with the game and if you do know how to play; so much the better because they love the competition. I have never played the game but it does sound like an interestingly fun time.Memorial DayWhile Memorial Day will be celebrated by the nation on Monday May 26; CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Bowling winners Dave and Holly Bragdon and Lois and Bob Crowley.

See you there.Golf OpenOn June 7, your Cherrywood Veterans Club will host its first Charity Golf Open at the beautiful Ocala Palms Golf and Country Club. If you are a golfer, you wont want to miss out on this terrific day of excitement on the links. Some folks have said that the $50 entry fee is expensive but look at what you get for that tax deductible donation; a pancake breakfast before you start your day on the course. Immediately following, you will be given a gift bag filled with tees; balls and other handy things to have both on and off the course. After this, you will be escorted to your golf cart and roar off to the holes for the shotgun start. Eighteen holes of golf follow with contests for the closest to the pin; a hole in one prize and more. A courtesy cart will go around carrying liquid refreshments to prevent our players from getting dehydrated. When all the golfers are in from the course, they will be treated to a luncheon including a choice of two entres; beverage and dessert. While the golfers enjoy their meal the scorers will be tallying up the various flights for cash awards. All through the tournament everyone will have an opportunity to bid on the silent auction donations we have received. These range from jewelry to gift certificates; wind chimes to hand made tote bags; and many items in between. This is an open golf tournament so we are prepared to welcome both men and women from all over the county. Individuals or teams; foursomes or twosomes can register by calling John Everlove at 352-509-4428 or Richard Hurley at 873-7208. The cutoff date is June 1 so call and make your reservation today.Document shredding Perhaps you showed up last Friday at 1 p.m. thinking that you were going to have your documents and personal papers shredded. Surprise; there was no shredder. Well that mix up on dates has been corrected and this Friday, May 16 from 1 until 3 p.m. Enviro-shred has promised to be at our clubhouse. While a little inconvenient, it is only a one week delay and for those of you who forget that last week was supposed to be the shredding; this is a lucky break. Youll have a second chance to destroy any papers that might make you a target of identity theft. Friday the 16th from 1 until 3 at the clubhouse; come and shred your documents for just a nominal fee. While youre at the clubhouse, pick up your Spring Fling Tickets too.Bowlers end seasonThe Cherrywood Bowlers have completed their 2013-2014 season of exciting bowling action until next fall. They celebrated yet another successful season with a banquet and the presentation of awards. The top team this year was Time to Spare made up of Lois and Bob Crowley; Holly and Dave Bragdon; a great team with a great name. There were several ties when it came to High Game total and High Average. For example, the High Average for Women was a tie between Maria Nadone and Holly Bragdon at 150. These two stars also tied for High Game total with 220. For the men, Howard Mayberry was the High Average with a 185; nicely done Howard. Major kudos go to Roy Stacer who according to my information sheet; bowled a 303 game this season. Since thats 3 pins higher than possible, we will just congratulate him on bowling a 300 game. Swing into spring with a fling Cherrywood John Everlove PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 week that saw Victor Ogreen come in first place. Sarah Blair and Avis Millet tied for second place and your reporter took third. Everyone had a good time although there were some hints of some shady playing by card sharks Victor; Sarah and Avis. Seriously, it was a fun competition run by club President Sarah Blair. We said good bye to Noreen Brown as she headed back up north along with some other snow birds. There is always room for more players and everyone is welcome to come out and learn the game or play with this crazy group. Mondays at 12:30 p.m. you will find the crew at the library/card room of the clubhouse laughing and joking and playing the interesting and time tested game of Cribbage. Come join us.Sponsors NeededWe are drawing close to the June 7 Charity Golf Open for the Veterans Club but there is still time to sponsor a hole.

The event will mark the observance 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.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com of Is. 1:18.) Brides throughout the ages have worn white gowns to symbolize their virginity and purity. Red seems to be the color of blood as well as sin. Red colored skin conditions often referred to in the Bible as leprosy were thought to be a result of divine judgment. Nathanial Hawthorne liked that idea when Hester Prynne was made to wear a scarlet letter A in his famous novel of hypocrisy and adultery, The Scarlett Letter. Blue and its cousins violet and purple are symbolic of heaven and Gods kingship and majesty. It was the color of kings robes and only royalty were allowed such colors. Jews take the color blue and use it on their prayer shawls in abeyance to the Biblical law of attaching a thread of blue to their garments to remember Gods commandments. The color now is an integral part of the Israeli flag with its colors of blue (for Heaven) and white (for purity). Let us all take in the wonderful colors of creation as only the Creator could have conceived. Sing your song, Cyndi.

At times one of the hardest things to seek and to give is grace. It is something beyond forgiveness and offering forgiveness to those who seek it as well as those who provide it. It is also challenging to find grace in those who are considered redeemable in our society and even in our lives. Starting Sunday May 18, at noon, the Board of Christian Education at First Congregational Church is offering a study aptly named Whats So Amazing About Grace from author Phillip Yancey. This program offers all of us an opportunity to see grace and forgiveness in a different light and offers a perspective that can help us on our faith journey. This program will run through Sunday, July 27. Members from the community are invited to join us in this journey of faith. First Congregational Church is located at 7171 SW State Road 200.

Charisma, vitality and joie de vivre spring to mind when you think of Hello Dolly! and it is in that spirit that the production has been chosen by PACOR for their fall musical production. At Mondays company meeting the reading and selection committee made the announcement to membership and it was greeted with much enthusiasm. There are several weighty roles for the musical but attention was immediately focused on who would play the title role. Some estimated names of existing PACOR acting legends and the board of directors made it clear that the role was open for all interested to audition. Several mentioned that there may be some hidden talent out there in our roads, courts, loops, road-avenues, streets, street-roads....well, just out there in Oak Run. Someone we dont even know of... whispered one attendee. We want to make it clear to the interested parties that the title role in this musical will be supported with full directing and coaching. You bring the raw talent, and well make you a star! mentioned Dick Caza, director. Along with the lead, there are roles for both men and women with significant lines and song. The meeting covered the need for an extensive ensemble of chorus. An announcement regarding the plans to limit practice for chorus, so that any who have interest and not an all together open schedule could participate. Hello, Dolly! is a musical with lyrics and music by Jerry Herman and a book by Michael Stewart, based on Thornton Wilders 1938 farce The Merchant of Yonkers, which Wilder revised and retitled The Matchmaker in 1955. Hello, Dolly! was first produced on Broadway by David Merrick in 1964, winning a record 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, a record held for 35 years. The show album Hello, Dolly! An Original Cast Recording was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002. The show has become one of the most enduring musical theater hits, enjoying three Broadway revivals and international success. It was also made into a 1969 film that was nominated for seven Academy Awards.

But getting back to my subject, I believe mothers would make wonderful politicians for several reasons. Mothers, generally speaking, know how to ask questions. Have you washed behind your ears? What time are you getting back? Do you have clean underwear? If all your friends jumped off a bridge would you? It is one thing to ask a question, but it is another thing altogether to ask the right question. I firmly believe asking questions is a highly refined art. Politicians, for example, ask questions they think people are asking. Before they query any audience, they take 197 polls to make sure they have the right question so they are not embarrassed. Mothers, on the other hand, ask questions to embarrass you and put you back on the straight and narrow. Politicians rarely expect answers to their questions. They are all rhetorical. They ask questions in such a way that nobody in their right mind could ever answer it. Quite frankly, if they ever got an answer to a question they would be so shocked they would not know what to do about it. Mothers expect an answer to their questions immediately...without delay. Question a politician, you get the runaround. Question your mother and she will chase you around. It would be more beneficial to be chased around by your mother than to have some politician give you the runaround. Another reason mothers would make good politicians is that they never stop until the work is finished. Everybody has heard the old saying, A man works from sun up to sun down, but a womans work is never done. At the end of the day, every mother has something to show for her work. It would be beneficial for our country if every politician were apprenticed to a mother with four or five kids. Let him follow her around for a week, if he can last a week, and he will get some idea of what working is all about. Let some politician clean up after four or five kids for a week and experience what real work is all about. Perhaps, if he has to clean up messes of other peoples making he might think twice before he makes a mess himself. The only work a politician really does, is working his mouth, which rarely accomplishes anything useful. By her very nature, a mother is always thinking about others. Rarely does she take any time for her own personal pursuits. Other people come before her interest and comfort. Wouldnt that be a wonderful trait in some politician? Instead of always thinking about reelection and what can get him re-elected, he begins to think about other people and their needs. Instead of putting his political career ahead of everything else, he would sacrifice himself to benefit other people, to help clean up the messes around him. Although it may seem like a good idea, we cannot afford to send mothers to Washington and neglect the important work she has at home. Nehemiah said it so well, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you? (Nehemiah 6:3). God knew exactly what he was doing when he put together a marvelous creature we now know as Mother. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

A10Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, May 16, 2014 www.smcitizen.com PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 We live in a world that is a true kaleidoscope of colors. Vivid hues surround creation, in the landscape, animals and in our natural surroundings. The color of the sky at sunset, the beauty of our fields here in Florida covered by magenta phlox, the lush, verdant horse pastures and the pink, purple and white flowering crepe myrtles transform our environment into one that is a pure delight of color. Cyndi Laupers song, True Colors comes to mind: I see your true colors shining through. These thoughts surfaced recently after having cataract surgery. The transformation from dull, cloudy vision to crystal clear was certainly miraculous as the colors of my own everyday environment took on new brilliance. Suddenly my world was brighter and more beautiful than before. Color plays an important part in our everyday life. Stoplights direct traffic and keep order on the highways, while red flagged messages on our computer warn us of important messages. We color code medicine bottles and storage containers and use color to symbolize a cause. The ubiquitous pink ribbon reminds of all of breast cancer awareness just as a yellow ribbon stands forth to remind us of returning troops. In the Bible, color adds special symbolism. In the very first chapter of Genesis, God creates the world out of darkness by creating a great light which is the catalysis tic force for the creation of the world. From this Big Bang arose the sky, land, sea, plants, animals, cosmos and humans. The Garden of Eden, earthly paradise, is swathed in green from the lush vegetation provided for the first humans. From this early greening, we have green as a symbol of hope and new life. No wonder the color is featured on the seder plate for the Passover holiday in the form of parsley or other greens. Before Hollywood even thought of this blockbuster, the Biblical story of Noah had all the colors, literally of the rainbow. The awe inspiring rainbow at the end of the story with its encompassing of all colors, combines all the symbolic elements of the colors, sin, redemption, majesty, glory, hope, into one visible sign that God would never again destroy the world by flood. Here is hope in one multi-hued package. Even the stories of the Patriarchs have colorful meanings. Esau, the elder son of Isaac, is ruddy in complexion. Tradition has it that he is the scion of the Edomites, a red haired tribe of people who inhabited Canaan in Biblical times. Esaus brother, Jacob, who receives the blessing of his father and becomes a Patriarch of the Jewish people, sires a son named Joseph. In this famous story, Jacob gives his favored son, Joseph, a coat of many colors, symbolic of leadership as only important men wore such a fine garment. This mantle woven of different colored threads spawned jealousy amongst his brothers and the ensuing story of their selling their brother into slavery and Josephs rise to power in Egypt is one of the Hebrew Bibles glorious stories. In the Passover story, the plagues take on colorful symbolism. The Nile turns red as blood, green frogs infest the land and the sky turns black and there is darkness for three days. Many of our modern interpretations of colors, have roots in the Bible. Black seems to be the color of evil, the depths of Sheol, a kind of Biblical hell or murky place of horror is colored black. Today we use that color to connote horror, evil or the unknown. The complete opposite of black or absence of color is white, which is all colors together. White is the symbol of purity and goodness. Jews use this kind of light to symbolize God and creation when they light Shabbat candles. The High Priest in Temple days wore an all white garment on the Day of Atonement to symbolize purity and redemption from sin. Though your sins are crimson, they shall be as white as snow wrote the prophet Isaiah, (paraphrase 2014 May true colors Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE18 Peace Lutheran Church, Dunnellon, was recently awarded a $5,000 Lutheran Community Grant from the Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation. The funding was awarded to Peace Lutheran based on its effectiveness in addressing basic needs of the local community. Peaces application was submitted on behalf of the Food-4-Kids Backpack Project and will be used to support this program. For every dollar raised by the Food-4-Kids program, from donors, between Dec. 31 and March 31, the Thrivent for Lutherans Foundation provided an additional 50 cents, up to $5,000, in support of the Food4-Kids Backpack Ministry. The challenge, from Matthew 25:35-36 was For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I was sick and you looked after me. The primary charitable interest of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans Foundation is assisting nonprofit organizations and those they serve in achieving economic security and sustainability. Fundraisers held by Food-4-Kids during the specified time period were: Something Fishing Going On, Flea Market, Bob Evans Restaurant Event, Change for Change, Skit, Tag sale, Bake sale, Auction, plus the ongoing appeal for funds.

A representative group of the Riverland Baptist Quilters visited the Shands Childrens Hospital in Gainesville recently to present 22 quilts to the Childrens Cancer Center. Diane Howard, the Shands Social Worker with that department, accepted the quilts on behalf of the patients. They will be presented to the children and teens who are receiving treatment in the Cancer Center to offer them comfort, warmth and encouragement, because we care about them, said Linda Hall, one of the Dunnellon area quilters. The project is the result of two and one half months of steady, focused piecing and quilting with donated materials from the community as well as from the quilters themselves. The quilts belong to the patients, and will go home with them after they have completed their hospitalization. The quilters enjoyed making these projects, knowing they will be cherished. Each and every quilt was made with many prayers for the children, their healing, and their comfort, especially during the cancer treatments. This is a continuing ministry of the Riverland Baptist Church group, which meets every Tuesday from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Riverland Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, 19455 SW 61st St., Dunnellon. For more information or to join, contact Jeanette Talbert at 352465-0947 or the church office at 352-489-6171.

These millions of citizens were conceived, but by elective abortions, are not now among our working population. Lets condemn those responsible for this inhumane and cruel law known as Roe v. Wade, passed in 1973 by the members of the U.S. Supreme Court who were without conscience, and allowed to stand since then by politicians who, for political gain, will not reverse such nationwide cruelty. Mabel Ryan Life Education Ministry, Inc. LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 In looking forward to Mothers Day, I could not help but think about the mess our country is in right now. Not that messes remind me of mothers in particular, but honesty compels me to admit they are good at cleaning up messes. And, the messes they clean up are not their doing. That is what makes it so great. Somebody needs to clean up the mess we are in. Anybody who steps outside their house knows that the country is in a terrific mess these days. It would be impossible to blame one political party over another. In this area, everybody is equal. The truth is, politicians make messes. Furthermore, they leave these messes for other people to clean up. Many politicians have dirty mouths and minds, but none has dirty hands from cleaning up messes. There are two kinds of politicians in our country those who make messes and those who allow those messes to be made. Wouldnt it be nice to find a politician who actually would clean up a mess? Our country is in the soup, and not the kind of soup your mother used to make. Politicians make soup out of circumstances that nobody can stomach while mothers have a marvelous way of making soup out of almost anything, it tastes heavenly, plus it is good for you. Recently, some politicians have been in an uproar and quite nervous over the swine flu situation. And there is good reason. With all the pork in Washington these days, they should be afraid they might catch whatever is going around. Maybe, and I know Im a little sadistic here, it might be good for a couple of them (okay, all of them) to come down with some kind of flu to send them to their beds for at least a month. Possibly a high fever might clear up their thinking. Plus, our country could use a vacation from politicians. We could put them all in quarantine until the danger is over. (Ill let them know when it is over. Honest. Cross my fingers and hope to vote.) Moms would make good politicians Out to Pastor Rev.

Friday, May 16, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 16, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenSo now we know that it was his girlfriend V. Stiviano who recorded Donald Sterlings racist rant as they bickered while watching his Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA playoffs. And that he apparently knew she was, which is really weird. Its too bad the mystery has apparently been solved, because it was fun to think it was the work of the National Security Agency, now widely described as the only agency in government that listens. Even the NSA head finds that line funny. But in the NBA, no one found anything amusing about Sterling being revealed as a card-carrying scumbag. Everyone stumbled over each other to express their utter shock at what he was caught saying. But his boorishness was hardly a secret. He has a long history of documented discrimination. This time, his bigotry was impossible to ignore. The leagues commissioner, Adam Silver, lowered the boom on Sterling, banning him for life, fining him the maximum and laying on pressure for him to sell the Clippers. The fine was $2.5 million; the franchise probably is worth $700 million, so lets not mourn for Donald Sterling. Still, this is being touted as a courageous act by Silver. Frankly, Im not that impressed. It really was a, uh, slam-dunk. The players were threatening to boycott, the fans who buy tickets might do the same, and most importantly, the corporate sponsors were scurrying away. Suddenly, the other basketball owners were letting it be known that they would vote to banish Sterling. Whatever their motivations, it was nice to see that those who run professional sports were finding racism totally unacceptable. But wait. We do have that situation here in Washington, where the NFL franchise proprietor, Dan Snyder, is adamant about retaining a slur against Native Americans to identify his football team. Lets hasten to stipulate that Snyder, in more ways than one, is not in the same league as Sterling. Besides, Snyder has established a new organization to provide money for Indian reservations. Its the Original Americans Foundation OAF. Sterling has been a big-time contributor to the NAACP. So much so that the civil-rights group was about to award him a second lifetime achievement award. Maybe the contrast isnt all that stark. One big difference is that the National Basketball Association is pushing Sterling out. The National Football League seems to be doing very little to force Snyder to get rid of the R-word. Commissioner Roger Goodell has done little except to state that its up to Dan Snyder to do the right thing. At least Sterling is being sent out to pasture. Speaking of which, maybe he can use the three-quarters of a billion or so dollars he for the Clippers to buy a huge cattle ranch in Nevada. Hell certainly have sympathetic neighbors. He can bring V with him. The state has a huge number of mines, so theres plenty more gold she can dig. In truth, its too late to worry about privacy. We have none. A word to the wise is watch what you do and say. Everyone else is. But wait. There is one other thing: Dont be such a jerk.Distributed by King Features Synd. As a child, I was brought up just a couple of years earlier than most baby boomers, hitting draft age just as the Vietnam era was beginning. With a wife and a child in the mid-1960s, I wasnt drafted, but I had friends who were. Two of those young men died over there, one in combat and the other on a shipboard fire. That led a lot of us to ask Why? We werent that far removed from World War II when I was a little boy, and my father and uncle, I knew, were proud to have served in defending our freedom. But as a 6-year-old, I saw the fear in my familys eyes when Korea broke out, fear that was part of worrying that our family members might have to go back in the military. They were asking why we were even there, since Korea wasnt a threat to us. They didnt have to go, but then came the Vietnam era, and the same talk had now spread to the nations colleges and neighborhoods, wondering why we were in a small country that posed no direct threat to us. I thought of all this Saturday when I stood at Veterans Memorial Park in Ocala during the deployment ceremony for the 351st Military Police Company, which is headed to Afghanistan for a year. Despite an impassioned talk by the commander of the unit, who told of meeting the Afghan people and how they wanted us there, I found myself asking that old question. Why? Please understand I am, in no way, criticizing the soldiers. They are volunteers, they are following orders and they are serving our country. As the commander stated, things have changed over the years. Back in those days people spit on the soldiers, called them baby killers and other things. Now we honor the men who go and serve, and we dont really question the way they do it. Im not asking why they are there, Im only asking why they are bound for this particular country. Yes, the people of Afghanistan need help against the Taliban. But people in a lot of other countries need help, too. The innocent people in places such as Syria, Ukraine, and Sudan are just as bad off as the Afghans. And dont you think we should be in Nigeria, helping look for those missing girls? Frankly, Id more like to see the National Guard living up to its title, guarding our nation. Should our troops maybe be deployed across the Southwest, along the border with Mexico, to stop the influx of illegal aliens and curb the drug smuggling? Should our troops be going into the areas of the country devastated by recent violent weather, helping those who have been displaced? Should our troops be deployed in Los Angeles to clean out the gangs that have taken over the culture in part of that major city? Those, to me, would be alternatives to Afghanistan that I could support. Its nice that we help people the world over, but lets help some of our people here at home. Im sure there were a lot of wives, husbands, mothers, fathers and children who went to bed this weekend but had a restless sleep, knowing their loved ones were heading for Asia. And Im sure as they tossed and turned in their beds, many were thinking that same word that many of us thought about 50 years ago.

In a news release, the FHP offers safety tips to drivers of vehicles: Always allow a motorcyclist the full lane width; never try to share a lane. Be on the lookout for motorcyclists. Check for motorcycles by looking in your mirrors and blind spots before entering or leaving a lane of traffic and at intersections. Do not tailgate. Allow more following distance when following a motorcycle, so the motorcyclist has enough time to maneuver or stop in an emergency. Dont drive distracted. Drive sober. The FHP also released the following tips for motorcyclists: Be alert drowsy driving can impair your ability to react. Drive sober. Inspect your motorcycle before each ride. Know the local traffic laws and rules of the road and obey them. Make sure you can be seen, wear bright clothing to increase visibility. Plan your route in advance and coordinate it with the other riders when riding in a group. Wear appropriate gear. These are all very nice, practical suggestions. Drivers of both vehicles and motorcyclists should be aware of them and follow the suggestions. But motorcyclists need to understand the laws of physics, you know, that class you slept through in high school. They need to study mass. Its very simple. A car can be five feet wide; a motorcycle can be about a foot wide as it approaches on the road. Which do you think you will be able to see easier a foot-wide cycle or a five-foot-wide car? We have always believed it when people involved in an accident with a motorcycle say afterward, I just didnt see it. Motorcyclists need to be aware that they are not as easily visible on the road, and they should be cautious when approaching intersections. Its not that people dont care about them, its just reality. Troopers want to make sure we share the road, and we should do so. But the responsibility falls on both parties, not just the automobile drivers. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Motorcycles: Time to share the road Once again, I find myself asking Why? Donald Sterling and other tarnished sports READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Birth rates declineIn a recent Associated Press article, fear of future economic disaster was attributed to low birth rates around the world. This article reviewed statistics worldwide, but for our purposes we will hold our opinions to conditions within the USA. The usual accepted stats were recorded, i.e., that a fertility rate of 2.1 is needed just to replace people dying and to keep populations constant. The USA has an average 1.7 children per woman, and in the past five years births have declined 5 percent, and are anticipated to continue in this direction. It is feared that this decline will have negative effects on the economy, personal wealth and living standards, resulting from the shrinking work force. We will offer no debate on any of these statistics or predictions of disaster that is better left for others to consider.

But it's important to hang in there until all those knotty situations are straightened out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You still need to work out last-minute snags in your dealings with a rival. Hold your ground despite a perceived lack of support. Things should change before you know it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Best not to delay preparing for that upcoming family event. The sooner you get things started, the better chance you have of finding potential problems and making needed changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The romantic Moon Child might be reluctant to see the reality behind that "ideal" situation. But by midweek, the practical Crab emerges to help clear away the moonbeams. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Although the Big Cat might be receptive to more "purr-suasion" to get you to agree to a workplace change, make sure you can distinguish the fine line between facts and flattery. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your positive attitude in the workplace helps to get you noticed by the right people. Now go ahead and use some of that new self-confidence to help shore up a personal relationship. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you might still have to work out some problems with a business partner, things go more smoothly on the home front. An investment opportunity might need more study. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Don't be reluctant to act on your suspicion. Even if others see nothing wrong, the astute Scorpio could sense an underlying problem that isn't always obvious. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new opportunity presents some obstacles that need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Delaying action in hopes that the problems will go away could be counterproductive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) A friend or family member's request might carry some hidden factors that could later create problems. Be sure you know all facts before you make your decision. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A setback in implementing a plan could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Use the downtime to rework your concepts and see where changes could be made. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might not be consciously fishing for compliments, but admit it -won't you feel great when your efforts are noticed? So accept the praise gracefully.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 THE WIND I S NOT A RIVER By B rian Pay ton This bittersweet love story takes place during the under-reported 1942 Japanese invasion of the Aleutians in World War IIthe only time the enemy occupied U.S. soil. At the time American journalists trying to cover the story were promptly ousted to prevent news leaking out and creating panic. But in Brian Paytons fictional The Wind Is Not a River, his intrepid protagonist, John Easely, does manage to parachute to Attu where its population had been taken hostage and shipped to Japan as slave labor. At first the fog is so thick John cant see anything at all even though he hears planes whine and circle overhead. Then a rift opens up in the fog: Unarmed, he can Bittersweet love story from 1942 only watch as a form takes shape near the edge of the beach. Japanese? A member of his crew? It is clear the man has seen him. Fortunately for Easely the form is that of a young GI, no more than 19 Karl Bitburghis new survivor mate. Together they hole up in a makeshift cave within a short distance from the unsuspecting enemy. In this starkly beautiful but unforgiving landscape, for weeks the two nearly succumb to hunger and cold, existing mostly on mussels and kelp, and often risking their lives to steal coal from the sleeping Japanese. What makes this managainst-nature story different are the alternating chapters dealing with the loved ones left at home, particularly Johns young wife Helen. Less dramatic than the visceral passages involving John, her transformation from nervous housewife to gutsy U.S.O. entertainer in search of her missing husband is worth examining. Sustaining Easely in his despair and very real fear that hell never be rescued is a note he finds in the cave. Written to her lover, a young woman named Tatiana promises to wait for him because the wind is not a river. A puzzling statement that John ultimately translates as meaning that although the wind fades away, the river flows forever. Even serious history buffs may be surprised at the extent of the Japanese toehold in the Aleutians and what it might have meant had they not been wiped out. As National Police Week starts, law enforcement officers across the nation remember and honor our fallen heroes those officers who in the service of their communities have given the ultimate sacrifice are remembered. As Florida mourns the loss of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Chelsea Richard, who lost her life barely a week ago in a deadly traffic crash on Interstate 75, the Florida State Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police, the Florida Highway Patrol, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Florida Police Benevolent Association and the Florida Sheriffs Association are designating June 2014 as Move Over Slow Down Save a Life month. The safety of the public and Floridas law enforcement officers traveling and working our highways, roads, streets and Interstates is paramount, this month and every month said James W. Preston, President of the Florida State Lodge, Fraternal Order of Police. The sheriffs realize the dangers law enforcement officers face every time they pull over a vehicle and they agree everyone has a civic duty to reduce this danger by complying with our traffic laws, said Steve Casey, Executive Director, Florida Sheriffs Association. In this regard, the sheriffs are proud to partner with the other state law enforcement agencies and associations to bring attention to this critical public safety issue via this campaign. Law enforcement officers who are working on Floridas roadways face great danger from distracted drivers. To better protect Floridas law enforcement officers, the statewide law enforcement organizations call upon all law enforcement officers in the state to actively educate the public and enforce the Move Over law throughout the state. Floridas Move Over law, FS. 316.126, requires drivers to: On a two-lane roadway, slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit; On a two-lane roadway, slow to five miles per hour if the speed limit is 20 miles per hour or less; and On an interstate or roadway with multiple lanes of travel in the same direction, you must vacate the lane closest to any emergency or law enforcement vehicle parked along the roadway as soon as it is safe to do so. If you are not able to safely move over, slow to a speed that is 20 miles per hour less than the posted speed limit unless directed otherwise by a law enforcement officer.

edge a kindness of deed or word; a compliment or embrace that comes along when that act is sorely needed. Of course I am speaking of the words, Thank you. Fred OHern sent me a message to pass along to all of you who have been following the story of his grandson Jacob. Jacob was involved in a traffic accident that left him paralyzed. His father Patrick, Freds son, is the major care giver for Jacob. Mobility Awareness Inc conducted an online poll to help select a person to receive a handicapped equipped van. Over the past several weeks I have been appealing to our readers to assist in this effort and you have responded magnificently. While we dont have the results as of this time, the outpouring of love and concern coupled with the on line voting was greater than we ever expected. Jacob, Patrick, Marion, and I would like to thank all of you who have been voting for Jacob! Fred wrote in his communication to me. In addition he thanked everyone for their thoughts; words; prayers and help. I would add to Freds Thank you my deep appreciation to Editor Jim Clark of the South Marion Citizen who included Jacobss plight on the Editorial page of the Citizen. Also, I would like to send out a special Thank you to my fellow writer and a beautiful person; Laura Smith. Laura does the articles for Oak Run and she has highlighted Jacobs story in her column. Laura has been a huge help in support of Jacob and his family. Sometimes we forget that we are surrounded by good people doing good things for others. Unfortunately we hear about the bad things people do more often than not and we tend to become cynical about our fellow man. Not only did our readers support Jacob but in addition; over the past few months they have sponsored our golf outing; donated to our Bowl a thon; given to the Patriot Dog Project; provided social events for our widows; helped feed homeless Vets at Ritz House; made blankets for indigent babies and new mothers; sent packages to our soldiers over seas; given blood and even more. Hopefully those of you who have done all these wonderful things will know that they are sincerely appreciated by those whose lives you have touched. Please know that when we at Cherrywood say Thank you; we truly mean it. Your opinions and suggestions for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen are always welcome.

We have flooded Pun Alley to help you learn the ropes and get your bearings with seafaring metaphors. The coast is clear for you to sound out the lay of the land by taking a different tack and playing a landmark game. Dont go overboard by barging ahead, come hell or high water. If you feel all washed up, on the rocks, in over your head, and sinking fast in a wave of confusion, try to stay on an even keel.By the numbersAt the Lake Weir boat rental concession, the manager went to the lakes edge and yelled through his megaphone, Number 99, come in, please. Your time is up. Several minutes passed, but the boat didnt return. Boat number 99, he again hollered, Return to the dock immediately. Something is wrong here, boss, his assistant said. We only have 75 boats. There is no number 99. The manager thought for a moment and then raised his megaphone, Boat number 66, he yelled. Are you having trouble out there?Legal issue?A young lawyer decided he needed a hobby. Following his buddies suggestions he went to the local boat show and asked a lot of questions. Everything seemed to be going well when he said, How do you dock the boat? The salesman replied, Well, you really dont dock the sailboat, you tie it up to a float just beyond the dock. This way you dont bang up the finish on the craft. Well then, the lawyer asked, How do you get out to the sailboat? Good question. The salesman told him. You can get a small rowboat and paddle out to the boat, or you can just walk out to the boat, if you dont mind getting wet. Oh, I get it, the lawyer replied, Its Row vs Wade.Short cruisesGive a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer. John asked his wife what he should name his new boat. She said, Name it after me. The next time she saw the boat, it had After Me on the back of it. A leak in the back of a boat is a stern warning. A tourist asked a blonde, Why do American scuba divers always fall backwards off their boats? The blonde replied, If they fell forward, theyd still be in the boat. The Indians gave Chris a bill for docking his boat. Luckily, Columbus was carrying his Discover Card. A chartered cruise for a group of judges is known as a courtship. Lady Passenger: Could I see the captain? First mate: Hes forward, Miss. Lady Passenger: Im not afraid. Ive been out with college boys.Help!While fishing off the Florida Gulf coast a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, Are there any gators around here? No, the man hollered back, they aint been around for years. Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore. About halfway there he asked the guy, Howd you get rid of the gators? We didnt do nothing, the beachcomber said. The sharks got em.In The SwimTwo boys were rowing a boat when they saw a man thrashing in the water. With no hesitation, they jumped into the water and saved him. It was not until they pulled him to shore that they noticed the man was the president, who had slipped away from the Secret Service for a swim. When the President caught his breath, he thanked the boys and offered them anything they wanted in return for saving his life. The first boy answered. I would like a presidential appointment to West Point so I can serve my country. The second boy said, Mr. President, I would like a burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The president was shocked and asked the boy why he would make such a request at his young age. The boy replied, Because when my father finds out I saved you, he is going to kill me.

A total of 186 replacement stun guns, including the battery, holster, and 2 cartridges were purchased through a finance option with Taser International which totaled $230,159. On Jan. 10, the U.S. District Court of Delaware entered a permanent injunction against Karbon Arms for patent infringement of stun guns. This forced the Marion County Sheriffs Office to remove 186 stun guns from its officers, posing a potential liability to the agency along with an increased risk of harm to our deputies. According to a news release, to mitigate this liability, Sheriff Blair made it a priority to find a way to purchase stun guns, although the funding was not a budgeted item. Blair stated its my job to protect the deputies as well as the public and the stun gun has proven to be an effective tool for law enforcement to do just that. Included with the release was a case which illustrates why the stun gun is an important tool for law enforcement, according to the Sheriffs Office. The report detailed the arrest on Hemlock Circle Way of a man with a knife who refused to cooperate with deputies and, even after he was handcuffed, continued to struggle and, according to the report, tried to bite the deputys leg. The man was also arrested for threatening the life of the deputy. Deputies regain ability to zap A rousing sendoff BY JIM CLARK EditorAs hundreds of family members, officials and friends looked on, the troops of the 351st Military Police Company were given a ceremonial send off Saturday, May 10, at Veterans Memorial Park. The soldiers are heading for Afghanistan and are not scheduled to return for a year. On a beautiful, clear morning with a slight breeze drifting over the park, the troops marched in formation from a distant area of the park to the grassy parade area in front of the stage and between the bleachers set up for the families. As they marched and chanted a military cadence, the Kingdom of the Sun Band played patriotic music and broke into The Army Song (Over hill, over dale, etc.) as the troops approached. Various city and county dignitaries spoke. Morrey Deen, chairman of the ceremony, told them, You have answered the call of your nation stick together, call on one another, call on us when you need help. 351st Military Police company heading to Afghanistan PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKTracy Laubenslager of Oak Run, a member of the Patriot Guard riders, said his groups motto is Standing for those who stood for us.

A new painted horse was unveiled on Derby Day at SummerGlen. Last fall the Gourmet Club decided to do something nice for their fellow residents and it was decided that the gift would be in the form of one of the Ocala Painted horses to be placed on the grassy lawn in front of the Residents Hall and Pool. Karla Marsh aptly did the research and made all of the arrangements to have the horse shipped from Chicago where it was manufactured. She was the go to person for anything that needed to be done (other then the painting) including getting the finished piece hauled to a local body shop for clear coating protection from the weather and supervising the mounting on the concrete plinth. The horse arrived in early March, six feet three inches tall, sparkling white and made of fiberglass. He had to be mounted on a temporary platform and was then moved to a private location for his transformation. The group of SummerGlen artists, Pat Ford, Bob and Helen Jewell, De Stosnowski, Helen Pagano and Betty Guyer began work by sanding and giving him a double coat of pink primer. Then they layered on the many coats of paint it took to transform him. His final coat consisted of gold hand-designed abstract filigree work, on top of his handsome deep toned finish. He was presented to the community by Gourmet Club President, Dahrie Hayman on a rainy May 5 at 4 p.m. as part of the Derby Day Celebration that takes place annually in SummerGlen. The communitys public buildings were all modeled after Churchill Downs. The day finished with a Derby Day Banquet complete with food, fancy hats and viewing the Kentucky Derby run for the roses.
