The ceremony will start at 6 p.m. Baccalaureate ceremony will be at the schools Performing Arts Center on Sunday, June 1, at 3 pm.United Way hopes to raie $6.7 millionRecently, the United Way announced at a gathering of key supporters that it has set a goal to raise $6.7 million in three years. It includes increases both to its community partners in the areas of education, income and health, to its ReadingPals/early literacy program and its financial education program, as well as to its endowment fund. ReadingPals, an early literacy program funded for three years by the Carol and Barney Barnett Foundation has provided an avenue to help struggling kindergarten students with reading skills using volunteers. The program overseen by the United Way is an enhancement to the programs that are administered through the Academy programs in 15 Marion County public elementary schools, all of which have 70 percent or more students on free or reduced lunch. During the 2012/2013 school year 216 students participated and were read to by 162 volunteers. The overall average academy standardized test score improved 18 percent; in comparison to the overall average district standardized test scores which improved seven percent. As the final year of funding begins in the fall 2014, continuing ReadingPals in the future as well as expanding the program is critical to working on the goal of INDEX Bookmark..............................13 Cherrywood.........................15 Classifieds.............................30 Indigo East............................14 Oak Run.................................17 OTOW.....................................28 Out to Pastor..........................5 Pun Alley...............................13 Puzzles...................................20 Spruce Creek North...........14CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, MAY 30, 2014 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 52 www.smcitizen.com32~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Placing Memorial Day flags Local Boy Scouts honor veterans buried at Good Shepherd BY MIKE ROPPEL Special to the CitizenBoy Scouts from troop 707 took time out of their three days off from school to place flags on graves at Good Shepherd Memorial Gardens in conjunction with Memorial Day. Since it was a service project, the Scouts could not accept any rewards. Scouts are also to do a good turn daily. When applying for their next rank these items are looked at carefully. Paul Worthman from Good Shepherd was very good at instructing the scouts and families on flag placement. Hopefully more flags will be available to place next year. For more information on Good Shepherd call 352361-7966. Boy Scout information can be obtained from Jim or Stephanie Salmon at 352-843-0093. PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELDaniel Trout, his Dad and Logan Baker are placing one of several flags. Paul Worthman from Good Shepherd is explaining how to place the flags. On May 25, eight On Top Of The World residents traveled to the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell. The purpose of the trip was to participate in the Flags For Fallen Vets program occurring across our Nation honoring veterans of all Wars interred at our national cemeteries. Jim Entinger, Keith Buckhold, Tony Magri, Archie Pollard Roger Schwartz, Jack Singer, Bill Walker, and Jim Winter joined over 3,000 volunteers in placing flags on the 120,000 gravesites in the cemetery. Flags For Fallen Vets, a national project, honors all the heroes at rest at national cemeteries by placing a flag on each gravesite of the veteran. The volunteers placed each flag 12 inches from the center of each grave marker. The national cemetery in Bushnell was one of 10 national cemeteries that had not participated in the program until this Memorial Day. Over 6,500 volunteers placed 230,000+ American flags at three of the remaining national cemeteries. It is the goal of the program to enlist the support of volunteers at the remaining seven national OTOW residents help with decorations at Florida National Cemetery Tony Magri, Bill Walker, Archie Pollard, Jim Entinger, Jim Winter, Jack Singer, Keith Buckhold, and Roger Schwartz PLEASESEEOTOW PAGE9 In its 2014 Atlantic hurricane season outlook issued recently, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center is forecasting a near-normal or below-normal season. The main driver of this years outlook is the anticipated development of El Nio this summer. El Nio causes stronger wind shear, which reduces the number and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes. El Nio can also strengthen the trade winds and increase the atmospheric stability across the tropical Atlantic, making it more difficult for cloud systems coming off of Africa to intensify into tropical storms. The outlook calls for a 50 percent chance of a below-normal season, a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season, and only a 10 percent chance of an abovenormal season. For the sixmonth hurricane season, which begins June 1, NOAA predicts a 70 percent likelihood of 8 to 13 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 3 to 6 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 2 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These numbers are near or below the seasonal averages of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes, based on the average from 1981 to 2010. The Atlantic hurricane region includes the North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Thanks to the environmental intelligence from NOAAs network of earth observations, our scientists and meteorologists can provide life-saving products like our new storm surge threat map and our hurricane forecasts, said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA administrator. And even though we expect El Nio to suppress the number of storms this season, its important to remember it takes only one land falling storm to cause a disaster. Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center, said the Atlantic which has seen above-normal seasons in 12 of the last 20 years has been in an era of high activity for hurricanes since 1995. However, this high-activity pattern is expected to be offset in 2014 by the impacts of El Nio, and by cooler Atlantic Ocean temperatures than weve seen in recent years. Atmospheric and oceanic conditions across the tropical Pacific are already taking on Hurricane forecast: Maybe fewer storms this season PLEASESEESTORMS, PAGE3 Hurricane tracking map Page 26 PLEASESEEUNITED, PAGE4 000I9NE

Also, we are currently seeing strong trade winds and wind shear over the tropical Atlantic, and NOAAs climate models predict these conditions will persist, in part because of El Nio, Bell said. The expectation of near-average Atlantic Ocean temperatures this season, rather than the above-average temperatures seen since 1995, also suggests fewer Atlantic hurricanes. NOAA is rolling out new tools at the National Hurricane Center this year. An experimental mapping tool will be used to show communities their storm surge flood threat. The map will be issued for coastal areas when a hurricane or tropical storm watch is first issued, or approximately 48 hours before the anticipated onset of tropical storm force winds. The map will show land areas where storm surge could occur and how high above ground the water could reach in those areas. Early testing on continued improvements to NOAAs Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting model (HWRF) shows a 10 percent improvement in this years model compared to last year. Hurricane forecasters use the HWRF along with other models to produce forecasts and issue warnings. The HWRF model is being adopted by a number of Western Pacific and Indian Ocean rim nations. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center.

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING Those who know me would agree that I am cool, calm, and collected, although not in that order. It takes quite a bit to razzle me and get me out of sync with my inner harmony. No matter what happens, I can always find something to amuse me and to laugh it off. I am just that kind of guy. I must confess that, while that is mostly true, I did have an incident this past week that threw all of that out of the window. That is what I get for leaving my window down! The week started out as normal. Mondays are usually my down day. After a full weekend of preparation and ministry, I need one day to really chill out and get my wits about me re-collected. On Mondays, I do not wish to do anything or see anybody or go anywhere. My motto for Monday is simply, just dont call me! I have one rule for Monday and that is it is impossible to oversleep. Whenever I wake up on Monday is when I get up. If ever the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage set the alarm clock for Monday morning, she will have to deal with a grouchy old geezer with an unpleasant attitude. I am sorry, that is the way life is. On this particular Monday when I finally awakened, the first thing I noticed was that my wife had already left the house. Out in the kitchen the coffee had been brewed and waiting for my consumption. There was a nice bowl of oatmeal ready just for me. Life cannot get any better than that! I only wish there were more Mondays in the week. I think when the Beatles sang that song, Eight Days a Week, they were referring to two Mondays. I fixed my coffee, got my oatmeal ready and proceeded into the living room where I could set in my easy chair and watch a little bit of television for as long as I could stay awake. Nothing is quite as nice as a Monday with nothing to do and nobody to bother you while you are doing it. I got situated and took a nice sip of delicious coffee and then proceeded to turn on the television. That is when my Monday exploded. I could not turn the TV on; something was wrong with the service. Usually at times like this, my wife takes care of the situation and resolves the problem. Here I was all on my own and I needed to step up and take care of business. I distinctly remember one occasion when my wife had to face such a situation and she would call the TV service. She would speak to some people there and in Just dont call me on a Monday Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE6 Master the Possibilities begins its summer season next week.

Our league names have a western theme meaning our team names are associated with the old west. Bob Vitale and his cowgirls ambushed the other teams and whupped up on them pretty bad. In fact the three female bowlers on his team, Barbara, Leslie and Helen, took the top honors for the high averages in the entire league. Our yearly awards banquet was held at Candler Community Center and Sonnys Bar-BQue catered our event. The food and service was outstanding and enjoyed by all. Although we do have a competitive spirit the league is strictly a fun league. We go by a set of rules, which all organized sports have, but we discuss them before the season starts and amend the ones that need changing. We make every effort to keep it a fun league. We always need bowlers as conflicts keep taking our bowlers to other endeavors. We invite all our neighbors, (Indigo, Candler Hills, Williamsburg, Providence, Avalon, Crescent Ridge, Friendship, Americana and Renaissance) to join us. Our upcoming season starts with our meeting on Aug. 21 at 2 p.m. at the Galaxy West Lanes on Easy Street. The winter season runs 30 weeks. We will finish up on April 9. The banquet will be on April 16. We start bowling at 2:45 p.m. every Thursday and we do take holidays off. Any questions or comments you may call: Jim Johnson 873-1281, Vic Brumley 351-3674 or Roy Russell 861-1257.Big Red BusThe Big Red Bus will be here again on June 2. The time is from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.at the Recreation parking lot. Each donor will receive a free movie ticket from Fandango. With Memorial Day just past and Fourth of July coming up, the need for all types of blood is great. Holidays always mean more driving and more traffic accidents. School will be out soon, people will be going on vacation, and the Snowbirds have returned to their rousts. The number of donors is less. Please take the time to save a life or three. Each pint can save up to three lives. See you on the Bus.Reel Aging Film SeriesOn May 22, at Live Oak Hall the picture, Nobodys Fool was shown. It must be an old movie because the only actors still living are Melanie Griffith and Bruce Willis. The others are Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was two hours of humor, sadness, and great acting. Quite a few residents showed up to watch as they sat in cool air conditioning instead of the hot outdoors.Travel ToppersHave some seats for July 15 shopping trip to the International Plaza in Tampa.

a few moments (after some rather angry screeching), the problem was solved. So I decided to do the same thing, minus the screeching. When was the last time you called a tech person to help you solve a problem with your TV and Internet service? Therefore, you know what I am about to get into. It is something worse than Rod Sterlings The Twilight Zone. I called the number associated with our TV and Internet service and that is when the games began. One of my problems is that I can remember the day when you talked to a live person. Someone actually living and breathing and living in your own country. How was I to know that the service technicians were somewhere in the hills of India? After punching 2,743 numbers on my phone, I finally got somebody. Actually, it was not really somebody; it was a recording telling me that I was 47th in line waiting for the technician. According to my calculation, it would take me 29 Mondays to get to talk to a live, breathing technician. By the time I was connected to a live technician, I had completely lost my cool and was close to not being collected. One of the problems I faced was trying to explain to this technician what my problem was. The next problem was to understand what he was saying to me. I believe if you are going to service American people, you need to speak good old fashion American without some accent that makes you sound like you are from Mars. Each minute on the phone with this technician caused me to lose more of my cool until I was absolutely hot under the collar. He knew almost as much about my problem as some stray cat in the backyard. Finally, I had enough and thought the best part of valor on my part would it be to bid him adios before I said some things that I would later regret. After I hung up and cooled down a little bit I thought of something. Why dont I just unplug the whole mess and then restart everything. It worked and I did not have to say it with some strange accent. In my devotions that morning, I read from Psalms 33:4 where David says, For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. Sometimes the best course of action is to do it yourself. Not being a doit-yourself guru, it does not come naturally to me. If you blame someone else for your problems, you are pointing the finger in the wrong direction.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The expansion is the latest installment in Utilities larger regionalization effort in southwestern Marion County with the goals of increasing cost-efficiency, protecting water resources and supporting economic development. By expanding the Oak Run facility and extending pipeline, three other smaller and less-efficient plants were shut down and the wastewater redirected to Oak Run. Because the Oak Run facility produces treated water that meets or exceeds advanced wastewater treatment standards, the quality of the water returning to the aquifer has improved, and Utilities has realized cost-savings from operating one plant instead of four. Treated wastewater, instead of being put directly back into the ground, is now pumped to two golf courses at Oak Run and one at Spruce Creek Preserve. This move reduces or eliminates pumping of groundwater for irrigation, and further purifies the treated water as it soaks into the ground. Business expansion requires water and sewer, and Utilities expanded facility and pipelines have made it less expensive for new businesses to connect to necessary utilities. The total regionalization efforts in the southwestern region have cost about $27 million and included a partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in the form of a low-interest State Revolving Fund loan, as well as cooperative funding from developers. The reclaimed portion of the project cost approximately $4.7 million, with the Southwest Florida Water Management District providing 50 percent of the funding. Oak run dedicates wastewater reclamation facility Officials take part in the ribbon cutting. Laura Smith and Rosemary Peluso, Oak Run Homeowners Association directors, attended the ceremony. 000I30D $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! Flowers $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!!

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 30, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenIll tell you what: If Hillary Clinton doesnt run for president, a bunch of people will have wasted a whole lot of energy. Why else would Vanity Fair resurrect Monica Lewinsky so we could revisit the tawdry case that blemished the familys first White House go-around? There is a wide body of thinking that has it that rather than being Monicas Revenge, the article by that woman actually will help Hillary when she runs (yes, the word when was intentional), because it will put an end to discussion of the dark period once and for all, declare it old news and remove it from the campaign plate. As someone who covered that awful scandal for more than a This is a yearly column, updated with latest information.Next week is big for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for local public high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were kindergarten students on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make them. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like self-starter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these people steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the folks who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to, but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computer-chair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen or play with a phone or tablet for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are (just look at the kidnapped girls in Nigeria). While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done.

Meteorologists are predicting a smaller than average Atlantic hurricane season; But, between June I and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-maycare types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a ho-hum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and hugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bankjust in time for the holidays. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

One by one, a judge has declared the states stance on marriage as solely being between one man and one woman unconstitutional. This is done despite the votes of the citizens declaring they agree with Gods definition of marriage. This definition of marriage goes back to biblical times and has never been questioned until these people have been put into Judgeships. If there was a question about this, why didnt our forefathers express their concerns about it? Marriage between a man and a woman has never been seriously questioned throughout our history, until now. I have no problem with a persons right to love whoever they choose, however I do have a problem with homosexuals or any others attempts to force their beliefs on the rest of us. In the name of political correctness and tolerance, we are to discard our beliefs and accept these views, even though they go against the expressed will of the vast majority of Americans and Gods.

Bright Ideas for Al Fresco EntertainingDavid Mirassou, wine expert and sixth generation of Americas oldest winemak ing family, offers up these tips:Pressed for time? Chill wine and other drinks in 10 minutes when you layer ice and salt in a bucket, and then fill with cold water.Want guests to keep track of their glasses? Dip the bottom stem of wine glasses in chalkboard paint. Once dry, guests can write their names in chalk or paint pens on their glasses.Looking for conversation starters? Use a chalkboard paper table runner to suggest food and wine pairings, and invite guests to comment on them.Not sure which varietal goes with what food? Use this rule of thumb: Pair lighter foods with lighter wines, and heartier foods with heartier wines.

God is the real and final Judge, and he is the one we should be striving to obey by studying his word and trying to live by it. Its obvious these Judges havent. I would love to see these states take a stand for states rights and say no, we are not going against the votes of our people on this or any other issue, period! Several states should join together in this defiance, and other states should support their stance. There is no question our federal government is overstepping their rights and powers as granted by our Constitution and the states better start taking the power back. If states do not take a stand soon, our form of government will collapse and its not a question of if, but when! Liberal Judges need to study our history and learn to respect the individual states and stop trying to change us into something were not. Our country is more divided than I have seen in my lifetime so perhaps the only way we can survive as one nation is for all of us to fully recognize the states rights and beliefs. If an individual doesnt agree with the state, simply move to another that has your value system. If you want gay marriage for example, move to a state that recognizes them. We better solve this and other serious issues that divide our great nation before its too late. States taking their powers back may be our best solution. I pray that God will not remove his blessing from America, we wont survive without it. Wayne Rackley OcalaWhoopi and hateWhoopi Goldberg just lit into and dissed Ben Carson, a black presidential hopeful. Her bile runneth over against the man, because he is not a raving liberal. He is a common sense candidate, and (the biggie) not a politician. The Democratic Party is the party of hate. It took eight and a half decades for people to tell me to my face that they hate me, and they do not want to speak or listen to me, dialog, and discussion are out of the question, and I should shut up. Trying to quote from the five books I read last week holds no weight with useful idiots. They know it all, even though they have never cracked a book. Books are available for a reason. When you read everything from extreme left to right, and middle, you just might learn a thing or two. Does Whoopi not realize how much she has achieved under this unfair system? What more does she want? Only Oprah has eclipsed her in fame, and money. She has reaped the benefits of this unfair system for decades. Only in America could she have enjoyed that level of success. When is enough, enough? I am discriminated against. I want her fame and fortune handed to me. My I.Q exceeds hers, the presidents, and the first ladys. Why them? Why not me? I do not whine, whine, whine. I enjoy life, and do not spend my time looking for reasons to hate. Life is not perfect. We do the best we can, and in America we are to be left alone doing it. Reap what you sow, not what the government sows. Where is that redress department of the government, I hear so much about? We have all had hard patches in our lives. We want our redress, too. My father sat, and cried when he could not buy food for us to eat. I am still here. Life is not easy or fair. We all want an easy path. Life does not work like that. Granted some find ways to milk, and distort the system. But that must be addressed, and corrected. It is government meddling that makes things even more unfair. Get the government out of the way, with its meddlesome laws and regulations, and let the people soar. We can do it. A few do-gooders will have to go as well. Let common sense and fairness prevail. I think it would be entirely fair if I were to replace Whoopi on her television show. She has had it long enough, my turn. What should I do the next time a liberal says they hate me? And they refuse to crack a book? Or listen to a word, and begin their mantra chant. The chants replace common sense, and dialog. Is that a recipe for solutions? Help me I need a snappy comeback! D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 year, and struggled during live TV shots to keep a straight face while using euphemisms about the infamous blue dress, I certainly hope the story finally does move into the who cares? zone. Nobody would give a hoot now, were we all not convinced that Hillary had risen from her mortification as first lady to making a run at the big prize. Republicans certainly are convinced that shell be their opponent. They have made it absolutely clear, with the formation of their select committee on Benghazi. I dont need to remind you who was secretary of state at the time. And if there ever was a sure thing, it would be that former Secretary Hillary Clinton will be called to testify. And even if theres another missing plane, the news networks will take it live. The GOPs can protest all they want that they are strictly motivated by a desire to present the truth about the tragedy in Libya, but this is really just a transparent effort to stick it to the Dems, particularly the one who will be their 2016 standard-bearer. Actually, its a risky strategy. When it comes to brawling, Hillary Clinton is no slouch. When her hearing is all said and done, it may be the Republicans who are left bleeding, exposed as shameless bullies who got a whuppin. However it turns out, itll be the TV blockbuster of 2014 or 2015. We already know what it will be in 2016. As hard as they try to control the GOP debates, the Republican National Committee will not succeed in its effort to add some dignity to their comedy shows. The party leaders are insisting that they will control the format and, by implication, even the questions to be asked, but they are courting a PR disaster the first time they tell one of their candidates who has not been preordained that he or she will not have an equal chance at television glory. And thats the Republican blessing and curse this time around. The party doesnt have a real leading light. While the ones we always hear mentioned are spread out from establishment to rabble rouser, the leadership wants to rein them into a cluster that extends only from right to extreme right. Usually, its the other way around; its the Democrats who are turning on one another. But it looks like they already have their candidate. If Hillary bails, then they dont have one.

Everyone brought their own refreshments but all enjoyed a catered dinner from Lees Chicken. All the ladies were given a red rose as they entered into Palm Grove. Festivities began at 4:30 p.m. with the usual fanfare associated with this long and traditional event. While awaiting the race, all the ladies paraded around this elegant facility presenting their beautifully decorated hats and bonnets. The excitement of the 140th Run for the Roses was again demonstrated as California Chrome proved why he was the best of the best. Following the race, the party continued with dancing through the remainder of the evening. The success of this event and many of the other events they coordinate is due to the outstanding planning, coordinating job done by a group of volunteers known as The Sweet 16. They are Veronica land Gary Andrews, Flo and Ed Feltman, Sandy and Jimmy Hackett, Linda and John McHale, Carol and Bill Pascoe, Emily and Paul Pike, Damian and Audrey Romano, Helen and Steve Routte.

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in 20~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Theres nothing an Aries Lamb likes less than having to tackle a humdrum task. But finding a creative way to do it can make all the difference. A more exciting time awaits you this weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Finishing up a job on time leaves you free to enjoy your weekend without any Taurean guilt pangs. A romantic attitude from an unlikely source could take you by surprise. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Moving in a new career direction might be seen by some as risky. But if you have both the confidence to see it through and the facts to back you up, it could prove rewarding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Holding back on a decision might be difficult, considering how long youve waited for this opportunity. But until youre able to resolve all doubts, it could be the wiser course to take. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You still need to move carefully where financial matters are concerned. Better for the Lion to move slowly than pounce on a promising prospect that doesnt keep its promises. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A rejection of an idea you believe in can be upsetting. But dont let it discourage you. Get yourself back on track and use what youve learned to try again. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) The early part of the week could find you looking to balance your priorities between your family obligations and your career. Pressures ease by weeks end. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) An associates problem could cause unavoidable delays in moving ahead with your joint venture. If so, use the time to look into another project you had previously set aside. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Although a financial problem could be very close to being resolved in your favor, its still a good idea to avoid unnecessary spending for at least a little longer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Support for some unwelcome workplace decisions begins to show up, and continues to build, so that by weeks end, the gregarious Goat is as popular as ever. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Congratulations. Deciding to attend a social function you might have earlier tried to avoid could turn out to be one of the best decisions youve made in a long time. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Getting into a new situation could prove to be a more difficult experience than you expected. Dont hesitate to ask for advice in coping with some of the more irksome challenges. ELIOT NESS: The Rise and Fall of a Hero By Douglas Perry So if it turns out that Eliot Ness and his gang didnt really shut down Capones Chicago operation and that some of his untouchables could be bribedwhat then are we to make of this quintessential lawman? Like all events and human lives, that of Eliot Ness has its own reality which author Perry carefully profiles. Forget Chicago, he writes, and look to Cleveland, Ohio, where this handsome, charming, 33-year-old man of action, Eliot Ness, purged a corrupt police department in that mobheld city before going after the local mob itself. Trusting no one, he personally worked undercover and implemented firsts in the department like police radios, and lie detectors. The new public safety directors priorities were clear. He was Captain Ahab hunting his big fish. Cleveland, like Chicago before it, was overrun with gangsters. And gangsters undermined society and degraded their fellow man. The Mob and public corruption would be his focus. Ness even reached out to teenage gangs in Clevelands worst neighborhoods, insisting on new basketball courts to get these youths off the streets. The citys newspapers applauded this savvy, gutsy, crime-busting pioneer and hailed him as a hero. Sadly, in his personal life there were no such triumphs. His immoderate drinking and skirt chasing wrecked two of his three marriages. Often broke and depressed at an age when most men are anticipating the second chapter of their lives, Eliot Ness died of a fatal heart attack. He was only 55. In 1947, seeing few options available to him at the time, Ness had decided to run for mayor of Cleveland even though he hadnt voted in seven years. He lost. Eliot gave his concession speech, toasted the victor, and then cheerfully accepted his failed expedition into political life with his customary humor: Whod want an honest politician anyway? he cracked. Ness: Rise and fall of a hero Bookmark Pat Wellington Last week while writing about Jay Leno my thoughts wandered to one of the greatest comedians of all time, Bob Hope. I had done a column about him in 2008; but it certainly bears repeating with some updating. Leslie Towns Hope was born on May 29, 1903. Bob, as we know him, became the worlds most recognized profile and talent from impersonating Charlie Chaplin in front of a firehouse in Cleveland in 1909 to vaudeville, stage, film, and a 60-year contract with NBC for radio and television. His admiration for and entertaining of Americas men and women armed forces at home and overseas, is remembered by everyone. Hope died in 2003, a few months after celebrating his 100th birthday; memories of him and his humor live on forever. Over the years, he gave us lots of political humor: The Democrats have an answer to the unemployment problem. Theyre all running for the presidency. On the many Democrats running for president in 1988. Clinton loves to make long speeches. In fact, this will be the first inaugural address with an intermission. Ronald Reagan is not a typical politician because he doesnt know how to lie, cheat, and steal. Hes always had an agent do that. Ronnies hero is Calvin Coolidge and Nancys is Calvin Klein. On the Reagans. I dont know what people have against Jimmy Carter. Hes done nothing. Campaigning for Ronald Reagan against Carter. Carter wants to go to Washington. Hell feel right at home there he was raised on a nut farm. The last time I played golf with President Ford he hit a birdie and an eagle, a moose, an elk, an aardvark ... Where else but in America could the womens liberation movement take off their bras, then go on TV to complain about their lack of support? You never had to ask his score. Just count the casualties. On Spiro Agnews atrocious golf game. You can tell he used to be a rancher. He squeezes Republicans like hes milking a cow. On Lyndon Johnson. A few months ago Kennedys mother said, You have a choice. Do you want to go to camp this year or run for president? On John F. Kennedy running for president at a young age. I have it on good authority that (Sen. Joseph) McCarthy is going to disclose the names of 2 million communists. He has just got his hands on the Moscow telephone directory. Eisenhower admitted that the budget cant be balanced and McCarthy said the communists are taking over. You dont know what to worry about these days whether the country will be overthrown or overdrawn. Harry had won by such a narrow margin he might not have made it if Bess hadnt voted for her husband. On Harry Trumans narrow victory over Thomas Dewey. He rules the country with an iron fist the same way he plays the piano. On Harry Truman.Hopes philosophical humorA bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you dont need it. I dont feel old. I dont feel anything till noon. Thats when its time for my nap. I grew up with six brothers. Thats how I learned to dance waiting for the bathroom. Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees. I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful. I like to play in the low 70s. If it gets any hotter than that Ill stay in the bar!

Trivia nightOn Wednesday, May 21 the gang showed up at the clubhouse for another rousing session of Cherrywood Trivia. Fred OHern was the quiz master and he challenged the group with a wide variety of questions on topics from history to entertainment; from current events to sports. Naturally, the competition was fierce as teams struggled for the answers. Faces were fixed on the big screen looking at the questions; pencils were gripped with white knuckles as they moved along the answer sheet; jaws were set in grim determination to get the correct answerwell, maybe not. It was more like a lot of light hearted laughing and joking around. Rising to the top was a team that included two new comers to Trivia; Sarah and Frank Blair. They teamed up with Rich Downs and yours truly to emerge number one for the evening and win those all important bragging rights for the next month. Trivia only costs a dollar to play and its a fun time for everyone concerned.

My father was running along beside me as I ventured out on my first two-wheel bike and at the instant that I was free of his secure grasp; riding on my own, I heard him say, Atta boy. From that moment until this, there have been many times when Ive heard that phrase and felt a degree of pride. Unfortunately there is another phrase that I came to know from shortly after my first Atta boy, and that phrase is, Aw crap. It couldnt have been more than a day or two after my first solo ride that filled with confidence; I rode my bike to the local school playground. Naturally I had to try my luck riding up and down the pitchers mound just like my friends were doing. Need I tell you that this was not my smartest choice? My lack of skill left me lying on the ground with skinned knees; bruised arms and other injuries that only boys know about who ride bikes. It was then I heard the words; Aw crap. You might be wondering why Im sharing these words and experiences with you and there is a good reason; really. During my military service; college; a career and several jobs; two marriages; three kids and several grandchildren; I have heard Atta boy hundreds of times. Unfortunately, I have learned that one Aw crap wipes out 1,000 Atta boys. For example, a person can play flawless baseball for an entire season but make an error in the World Series and their whole season is wiped out. A doctor can do 10,000 operations perfectly but goof up one patient and his career is tarnished forever. This week in our monthly news magazine; the Chirp, yours truly mistakenly put in the wrong time for an event that is coming up in June. Of all things it was the Veterans Appreciation Dinner. Aw crap! As any person should do when they make a mistake; I can only apologize and hope that my error doesnt cause anyone to be misinformed. Our Veterans Dinner will be at 5:30 on June 21. Can I hear an Atta boy?Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com I love to go to Washington if only to be near my money. If I have to lay an egg for my country, Ill do it. If you watch a game, its fun. If you play it, its recreation. If you work at it, its golf. Bigamy is the only crime where two rites make a wrong. Middle age is when you still believe youll feel better in the morning. She said she was approaching 40, and I couldnt help wondering from what direction. I have performed for 12 presidents and entertained only six. The only thing chicken about Israel is their soup. The trees in Siberia are miles apart; that is why the dogs are so fast. You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake. PUNSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenOn Sunday, May 25, the Indigo East Community held its Memorial Day pot luck dinner. The tables were decorated with red/white checkered tablecloths, decorated paper plates and centerpieces of vases with red stars, flags or red/white/blue carnations. There was an array of dishes to choose from. The neighbors really went all out. The menu include pasta dishes, barbecued pulled chicken, sausages with peppers and onions, baked beans, baby back pork ribs, fried chicken, stew, American Chop Suey, variety of salads, rolls and garlic bread. After you ate your delicious meal you had many choices for dessert such as apple pie, vanilla pound cake, macaroons, lemon meringue pie, different cookies, raspberry streusel, iced lemon cake, chocolate marble cake, mini eclairs and fruit ray. There was also Diet Coke, Coke, 7Up, ice tea and coffee to drink. A 50/50 raffle was also held. Special thanks to the following people who planned and organized this event: Mary Lou and Fred Masone, Gordon and Cookie Daniels, John and Dianna Grace, Sal and Joan Lanzetti, Candi and Owen Crannell. This event wouldnt be held without the great neighbors of Indigo East who put forth their time and effort. Thanks to all our servicemen and women who fought and died for this great country of ours and to the young men and women who are still fighting for us. We salute you. PHOTO BY FRANK DIPIEROIndigo East residents enjoy the Memorial Day pot luck dinner. Indigo East dinner It looks like summer is here to stay. I for one love the heat and cant stand the cold. Born in Chicago, I had enough cold and snow to last a lifetime.Memorial Day PicnicWell the Memorial day picnic went off real well with plenty of hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, baked beans, dessert and soda or iced tea. Time was 12:30 and price was $10 for all. It was the last big event until after the summer is over. The social committee always does an excellent job with all these events. Most of the snowbirds are gone so things should quiet down. Armed Forces day was the 17th of this month. Fathers day is June 15. Please honor your father like you do your mother. Sometimes dad is overlooked.Clubs in SCNBingo is still on Tuesday nights. I believe Mah Jongg is still played on Wednesday afternoons at 12:45. Ladies poker is on Mondays at 12:30 (they are always looking for new players) Billiards is played MondayFriday from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Picnic goes well at Spruce Creek North Craft club is on Wednesday (call Marlene Dorner for more info). Quilt club is on Fridays at about noon. Spruce Creek Norths exercise room is available to all residents. And the library is a great place to browse.Nursing Home and Re-Hab CentersAfter my husband spent 27 days in TimberRidge rehab I have to say I admire all the wives, husbands, daughters and sons who faithfully came to see their loved ones once and twice a day.

While I was not on this tour, from all reports everyone had a great time seeing a vast array of wildlife. On this excursion bald eagles; osprey and assorted herons were spotted along with an 8-foot alligator; turtles; river otters feeding on fish and of course everyones favorites; manatees. The boat was reminiscent of Kon Tiki so it was not the most luxurious yacht on the water but it did add to the rustic flavor of the trip. I imagine it was like traveling with one of the characters seen on Swamp People. One person said, it was an adventure sitting so close to the water. We were happy that everyone had a good time and thanks Marty Duesel for coordinating and leading the expedition.Summer FestHawaii is coming to Cherrywood with a Luau on Monday, June 9. Summer Fest themed parties are always a blast here at the clubhouse and they enjoy great support. Tickets are free but you must have a ticket to gain admission. See Geri and then put on your flowery shirt; lei and straw hat and join in the fun. The doors open at 5 and the meal will be served at 5:30. Enjoy tender succulent pulled pork with yams; Tropical fruit salad and more. Immediately following the delicious dinner you will be entertained by the island sounds of Dawn and Steve Hendrickson playing the steel drums. This gifted duet has been at Cherrywood before and is back by popular demand. Their unique sounds and immense talent are a joy to hear and dance to. You wont want to miss them. Some rather unique talent will be on the program as well. Lovely Pair of Coconuts will be performed some time during the evening. This humorous presentation will be a real delight; or maybe not. This is one dance troupe you just might want to miss. Chris and Mario Zacco sponsor our Summer Fest events and we are grateful to them for bringing excellent talent and wonderful food to us as we celebrate summer. Our snow birds just dont know what theyre missing.

Michael Arvay of Ocala was presented with the scholarship award for his work and leadership with the West Port High School theater troupe, for the recommendation of his educators and directors as well as for his education plans. Janet Shelley is Theatre Educator and Thespian Troupe Director at Marion County Center for the Arts at West Port High School. Ms. Shelley comments, Michael Arvay is an extremely talented actor and a highly motivated student. He has been an integral member of our theater troupe for the past four years. Starting as a freshman, Michael demonstrated intelligence and ability beyond his years. He has always been able to grasp the psychological aspects of the characters he plays, which is indicative of good analytical skills as well as the ability to empathize with another human being. Nancy Atkinson, Director of Chorus and Orchestra at West Port, commented, After 30 years of teaching, it is rare to come across a high school student who is completely passionate about learning for no other reason than to satisfy a need for exploration and curiosity. Michael Arvay has been a precious gift to the performing arts program at West Port High School as well as to me. Michael is involved in chorus, musical theater, acting, orchestra, keyboard and has recently undertaken playing the sitar. He has also served as the Troupes public relations officer. Among his acting credits are the grandfather in You Cant Take it with You and Tom in Tennessee Williams The Glass Menagerie.

Michael Arvay of Ocala was presented with the scholarship award for his work and leadership with the West Port High School theater troupe, for the recommendation of his educators and directors as well as for his education plans. Janet Shelley is Theatre Educator and Thespian Troupe Director at Marion County Center for the Arts at West Port High School. Ms. Shelley comments, Michael Arvay is an extremely talented actor and a highly motivated student. He has been an integral member of our theater troupe for the past four years. Starting as a freshman, Michael demonstrated intelligence and ability beyond his years. He has always been able to grasp the psychological aspects of the characters he plays, which is indicative of good analytical skills as well as the ability to empathize with another human being. Nancy Atkinson, Director of Chorus and Orchestra at West Port, commented, After 30 years of teaching, it is rare to come across a high school student who is completely passionate about learning for no other reason than to satisfy a need for exploration and curiosity. Michael Arvay has been a precious gift to the performing arts program at West Port High School as well as to me. Michael is involved in chorus, musical theater, acting, orchestra, keyboard and has recently undertaken playing the sitar. He has also served as the Troupes public relations officer. Among his acting credits are the grandfather in You Cant Take it with You and Tom in Tennessee Williams The Glass Menagerie.

on the main stage at the State Thespian Conference in Tampa this year. Michael comments, My goal is to go to college and obtain a dual major in theater and psychology.

While I was not on this tour, from all reports everyone had a great time seeing a vast array of wildlife. On this excursion bald eagles; osprey and assorted herons were spotted along with an 8-foot alligator; turtles; river otters feeding on fish and of course everyones favorites; manatees. The boat was reminiscent of Kon Tiki so it was not the most luxurious yacht on the water but it did add to the rustic flavor of the trip. I imagine it was like traveling with one of the characters seen on Swamp People. One person said, it was an adventure sitting so close to the water. We were happy that everyone had a good time and thanks Marty Duesel for coordinating and leading the expedition.Summer FestHawaii is coming to Cherrywood with a Luau on Monday, June 9.

Enjoy tender succulent pulled pork with yams; Tropical fruit salad and more. Immediately following the delicious dinner you will be entertained by the island sounds of Dawn and Steve Hendrickson playing the steel drums. This gifted duet has been at Cherrywood before and is back by popular demand. Their unique sounds and immense talent are a joy to hear and dance to. You wont want to miss them. Some rather unique talent will be on the program as well. Lovely Pair of Coconuts will be performed some time during the evening. This humorous presentation will be a real delight; or maybe not. This is one dance troupe you just might want to miss.

Fred OHern was the quiz master and he challenged the group with a wide variety of questions on topics from history to entertainment; from current events to sports. Naturally, the competition was fierce as teams struggled for the answers. Faces were fixed on the big screen looking at the questions; pencils were gripped with white knuckles as they moved along the answer sheet; jaws were set in grim determination to get the correct answerwell, maybe not. It was more like a lot of light hearted laughing and joking around. Rising to the top was a team that included two new comers to Trivia; Sarah and Frank Blair. They teamed up with Rich Downs and yours truly to emerge number one for the evening and win those all important bragging rights for the next month.

My father was running along beside me as I ventured out on my first two-wheel bike and at the instant that I was free of his secure grasp; riding on my own, I heard him say, Atta boy. From that moment until this, there have been many times when Ive heard that phrase and felt a degree of pride. Unfortunately there is another phrase that I came to know from shortly after my first Atta boy, and that phrase is, Aw crap. It couldnt have been more than a day or two after my first solo ride that filled with confidence; I rode my bike to the local school playground. Naturally I had to try my luck riding up and down the pitchers mound just like my friends were doing. Need I tell you that this was not my smartest choice? My lack of skill left me lying on the ground with skinned knees; bruised arms and other injuries that only boys know about who ride bikes. It was then I heard the words; Aw crap. You might be wondering why Im sharing these words and experiences with you and there is a good reason; really. During my military service; college; a career and several jobs; two marriages; three kids and several grandchildren; I have heard Atta boy hundreds of times. Unfortunately, I have learned that one Aw crap wipes out 1,000 Atta boys. For example, a person can play flawless baseball for an entire season but make an error in the World Series and their whole season is wiped out. A doctor can do 10,000 operations perfectly but goof up one patient and his career is tarnished forever. This week in our monthly news magazine; the Chirp, yours truly mistakenly put in the wrong time for an event that is coming up in June. Of all things it was the Veterans Appreciation Dinner. Aw crap! As any person should do when they make a mistake; I can only apologize and hope that my error doesnt cause anyone to be misinformed. Our Veterans Dinner will be at 5:30 on June 21. Can I hear an Atta boy?Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com I love to go to Washington if only to be near my money. If I have to lay an egg for my country, Ill do it. If you watch a game, its fun. If you play it, its recreation. If you work at it, its golf. Bigamy is the only crime where two rites make a wrong. Middle age is when you still believe youll feel better in the morning. She said she was approaching 40, and I couldnt help wondering from what direction. I have performed for 12 presidents and entertained only six. The only thing chicken about Israel is their soup. The trees in Siberia are miles apart; that is why the dogs are so fast. You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake. PUNSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenOn Sunday, May 25, the Indigo East Community held its Memorial Day pot luck dinner. The tables were decorated with red/white checkered tablecloths, decorated paper plates and centerpieces of vases with red stars, flags or red/white/blue carnations. There was an array of dishes to choose from. The neighbors really went all out. The menu include pasta dishes, barbecued pulled chicken, sausages with peppers and onions, baked beans, baby back pork ribs, fried chicken, stew, American Chop Suey, variety of salads, rolls and garlic bread. After you ate your delicious meal you had many choices for dessert such as apple pie, vanilla pound cake, macaroons, lemon meringue pie, different cookies, raspberry streusel, iced lemon cake, chocolate marble cake, mini eclairs and fruit ray. There was also Diet Coke, Coke, 7Up, ice tea and coffee to drink. A 50/50 raffle was also held. Special thanks to the following people who planned and organized this event: Mary Lou and Fred Masone, Gordon and Cookie Daniels, John and Dianna Grace, Sal and Joan Lanzetti, Candi and Owen Crannell. This event wouldnt be held without the great neighbors of Indigo East who put forth their time and effort. Thanks to all our servicemen and women who fought and died for this great country of ours and to the young men and women who are still fighting for us. We salute you.

Born in Chicago, I had enough cold and snow to last a lifetime.Memorial Day PicnicWell the Memorial day picnic went off real well with plenty of hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, baked beans, dessert and soda or iced tea. Time was 12:30 and price was $10 for all. It was the last big event until after the summer is over. The social committee always does an excellent job with all these events. Most of the snowbirds are gone so things should quiet down. Armed Forces day was the 17th of this month. Fathers day is June 15. Please honor your father like you do your mother. Sometimes dad is overlooked.Clubs in SCNBingo is still on Tuesday nights. I believe Mah Jongg is still played on Wednesday afternoons at 12:45.

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in 20~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Theres nothing an Aries Lamb likes less than having to tackle a humdrum task. But finding a creative way to do it can make all the difference. A more exciting time awaits you this weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Finishing up a job on time leaves you free to enjoy your weekend without any Taurean guilt pangs. A romantic attitude from an unlikely source could take you by surprise. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Moving in a new career direction might be seen by some as risky. But if you have both the confidence to see it through and the facts to back you up, it could prove rewarding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Holding back on a decision might be difficult, considering how long youve waited for this opportunity. But until youre able to resolve all doubts, it could be the wiser course to take. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You still need to move carefully where financial matters are concerned. Better for the Lion to move slowly than pounce on a promising prospect that doesnt keep its promises. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A rejection of an idea you believe in can be upsetting. But dont let it discourage you. Get yourself back on track and use what youve learned to try again. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) The early part of the week could find you looking to balance your priorities between your family obligations and your career. Pressures ease by weeks end. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) An associates problem could cause unavoidable delays in moving ahead with your joint venture. If so, use the time to look into another project you had previously set aside. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Although a financial problem could be very close to being resolved in your favor, its still a good idea to avoid unnecessary spending for at least a little longer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Support for some unwelcome workplace decisions begins to show up, and continues to build, so that by weeks end, the gregarious Goat is as popular as ever. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Congratulations. Deciding to attend a social function you might have earlier tried to avoid could turn out to be one of the best decisions youve made in a long time. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Getting into a new situation could prove to be a more difficult experience than you expected. Dont hesitate to ask for advice in coping with some of the more irksome challenges. ELIOT NESS: The Rise and Fall of a Hero By Douglas Perry So if it turns out that Eliot Ness and his gang didnt really shut down Capones Chicago operation and that some of his untouchables could be bribedwhat then are we to make of this quintessential lawman? Like all events and human lives, that of Eliot Ness has its own reality which author Perry carefully profiles. Forget Chicago, he writes, and look to Cleveland, Ohio, where this handsome, charming, 33-year-old man of action, Eliot Ness, purged a corrupt police department in that mobheld city before going after the local mob itself. Trusting no one, he personally worked undercover and implemented firsts in the department like police radios, and lie detectors. The new public safety directors priorities were clear. He was Captain Ahab hunting his big fish. Cleveland, like Chicago before it, was overrun with gangsters. And gangsters undermined society and degraded their fellow man. The Mob and public corruption would be his focus. Ness even reached out to teenage gangs in Clevelands worst neighborhoods, insisting on new basketball courts to get these youths off the streets. The citys newspapers applauded this savvy, gutsy, crime-busting pioneer and hailed him as a hero. Sadly, in his personal life there were no such triumphs. His immoderate drinking and skirt chasing wrecked two of his three marriages. Often broke and depressed at an age when most men are anticipating the second chapter of their lives, Eliot Ness died of a fatal heart attack. He was only 55. In 1947, seeing few options available to him at the time, Ness had decided to run for mayor of Cleveland even though he hadnt voted in seven years. He lost. Eliot gave his concession speech, toasted the victor, and then cheerfully accepted his failed expedition into political life with his customary humor: Whod want an honest politician anyway? he cracked. Ness: Rise and fall of a hero Bookmark Pat Wellington Last week while writing about Jay Leno my thoughts wandered to one of the greatest comedians of all time, Bob Hope. I had done a column about him in 2008; but it certainly bears repeating with some updating. Leslie Towns Hope was born on May 29, 1903. Bob, as we know him, became the worlds most recognized profile and talent from impersonating Charlie Chaplin in front of a firehouse in Cleveland in 1909 to vaudeville, stage, film, and a 60-year contract with NBC for radio and television. His admiration for and entertaining of Americas men and women armed forces at home and overseas, is remembered by everyone. Hope died in 2003, a few months after celebrating his 100th birthday; memories of him and his humor live on forever. Over the years, he gave us lots of political humor: The Democrats have an answer to the unemployment problem. Theyre all running for the presidency. On the many Democrats running for president in 1988. Clinton loves to make long speeches. In fact, this will be the first inaugural address with an intermission. Ronald Reagan is not a typical politician because he doesnt know how to lie, cheat, and steal. Hes always had an agent do that. Ronnies hero is Calvin Coolidge and Nancys is Calvin Klein. On the Reagans. I dont know what people have against Jimmy Carter. Hes done nothing. Campaigning for Ronald Reagan against Carter. Carter wants to go to Washington. Hell feel right at home there he was raised on a nut farm. The last time I played golf with President Ford he hit a birdie and an eagle, a moose, an elk, an aardvark ... Where else but in America could the womens liberation movement take off their bras, then go on TV to complain about their lack of support? You never had to ask his score. Just count the casualties. On Spiro Agnews atrocious golf game. You can tell he used to be a rancher. He squeezes Republicans like hes milking a cow. On Lyndon Johnson. A few months ago Kennedys mother said, You have a choice. Do you want to go to camp this year or run for president? On John F. Kennedy running for president at a young age. I have it on good authority that (Sen. Joseph) McCarthy is going to disclose the names of 2 million communists. He has just got his hands on the Moscow telephone directory. Eisenhower admitted that the budget cant be balanced and McCarthy said the communists are taking over. You dont know what to worry about these days whether the country will be overthrown or overdrawn. Harry had won by such a narrow margin he might not have made it if Bess hadnt voted for her husband. On Harry Trumans narrow victory over Thomas Dewey. He rules the country with an iron fist the same way he plays the piano. On Harry Truman.Hopes philosophical humorA bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you dont need it. I dont feel old. I dont feel anything till noon. Thats when its time for my nap. I grew up with six brothers. Thats how I learned to dance waiting for the bathroom. Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees. I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful. I like to play in the low 70s. If it gets any hotter than that Ill stay in the bar!

While awaiting the race, all the ladies paraded around this elegant facility presenting their beautifully decorated hats and bonnets. The excitement of the 140th Run for the Roses was again demonstrated as California Chrome proved why he was the best of the best. Following the race, the party continued with dancing through the remainder of the evening. The success of this event and many of the other events they coordinate is due to the outstanding planning, coordinating job done by a group of volunteers known as The Sweet 16. They are Veronica land Gary Andrews, Flo and Ed Feltman, Sandy and Jimmy Hackett, Linda and John McHale, Carol and Bill Pascoe, Emily and Paul Pike, Damian and Audrey Romano, Helen and Steve Routte.

God is the real and final Judge, and he is the one we should be striving to obey by studying his word and trying to live by it. Its obvious these Judges havent. I would love to see these states take a stand for states rights and say no, we are not going against the votes of our people on this or any other issue, period! Several states should join together in this defiance, and other states should support their stance. There is no question our federal government is overstepping their rights and powers as granted by our Constitution and the states better start taking the power back. If states do not take a stand soon, our form of government will collapse and its not a question of if, but when! Liberal Judges need to study our history and learn to respect the individual states and stop trying to change us into something were not. Our country is more divided than I have seen in my lifetime so perhaps the only way we can survive as one nation is for all of us to fully recognize the states rights and beliefs. If an individual doesnt agree with the state, simply move to another that has your value system. If you want gay marriage for example, move to a state that recognizes them. We better solve this and other serious issues that divide our great nation before its too late. States taking their powers back may be our best solution. I pray that God will not remove his blessing from America, we wont survive without it. Wayne Rackley OcalaWhoopi and hateWhoopi Goldberg just lit into and dissed Ben Carson, a black presidential hopeful. Her bile runneth over against the man, because he is not a raving liberal. He is a common sense candidate, and (the biggie) not a politician. The Democratic Party is the party of hate. It took eight and a half decades for people to tell me to my face that they hate me, and they do not want to speak or listen to me, dialog, and discussion are out of the question, and I should shut up. Trying to quote from the five books I read last week holds no weight with useful idiots. They know it all, even though they have never cracked a book. Books are available for a reason. When you read everything from extreme left to right, and middle, you just might learn a thing or two. Does Whoopi not realize how much she has achieved under this unfair system? What more does she want? Only Oprah has eclipsed her in fame, and money. She has reaped the benefits of this unfair system for decades. Only in America could she have enjoyed that level of success. When is enough, enough? I am discriminated against. I want her fame and fortune handed to me. My I.Q exceeds hers, the presidents, and the first ladys. Why them? Why not me? I do not whine, whine, whine. I enjoy life, and do not spend my time looking for reasons to hate. Life is not perfect. We do the best we can, and in America we are to be left alone doing it. Reap what you sow, not what the government sows. Where is that redress department of the government, I hear so much about? We have all had hard patches in our lives. We want our redress, too. My father sat, and cried when he could not buy food for us to eat. I am still here. Life is not easy or fair. We all want an easy path. Life does not work like that. Granted some find ways to milk, and distort the system. But that must be addressed, and corrected. It is government meddling that makes things even more unfair. Get the government out of the way, with its meddlesome laws and regulations, and let the people soar. We can do it. A few do-gooders will have to go as well. Let common sense and fairness prevail. I think it would be entirely fair if I were to replace Whoopi on her television show. She has had it long enough, my turn. What should I do the next time a liberal says they hate me? And they refuse to crack a book? Or listen to a word, and begin their mantra chant. The chants replace common sense, and dialog. Is that a recipe for solutions? Help me I need a snappy comeback! D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 year, and struggled during live TV shots to keep a straight face while using euphemisms about the infamous blue dress, I certainly hope the story finally does move into the who cares? zone. Nobody would give a hoot now, were we all not convinced that Hillary had risen from her mortification as first lady to making a run at the big prize. Republicans certainly are convinced that shell be their opponent. They have made it absolutely clear, with the formation of their select committee on Benghazi. I dont need to remind you who was secretary of state at the time. And if there ever was a sure thing, it would be that former Secretary Hillary Clinton will be called to testify. And even if theres another missing plane, the news networks will take it live. The GOPs can protest all they want that they are strictly motivated by a desire to present the truth about the tragedy in Libya, but this is really just a transparent effort to stick it to the Dems, particularly the one who will be their 2016 standard-bearer. Actually, its a risky strategy. When it comes to brawling, Hillary Clinton is no slouch. When her hearing is all said and done, it may be the Republicans who are left bleeding, exposed as shameless bullies who got a whuppin. However it turns out, itll be the TV blockbuster of 2014 or 2015. We already know what it will be in 2016. As hard as they try to control the GOP debates, the Republican National Committee will not succeed in its effort to add some dignity to their comedy shows. The party leaders are insisting that they will control the format and, by implication, even the questions to be asked, but they are courting a PR disaster the first time they tell one of their candidates who has not been preordained that he or she will not have an equal chance at television glory. And thats the Republican blessing and curse this time around. The party doesnt have a real leading light. While the ones we always hear mentioned are spread out from establishment to rabble rouser, the leadership wants to rein them into a cluster that extends only from right to extreme right. Usually, its the other way around; its the Democrats who are turning on one another. But it looks like they already have their candidate. If Hillary bails, then they dont have one.

Bright Ideas for Al Fresco EntertainingDavid Mirassou, wine expert and sixth generation of Americas oldest winemak ing family, offers up these tips:Pressed for time? Chill wine and other drinks in 10 minutes when you layer ice and salt in a bucket, and then fill with cold water.Want guests to keep track of their glasses? Dip the bottom stem of wine glasses in chalkboard paint. Once dry, guests can write their names in chalk or paint pens on their glasses.Looking for conversation starters? Use a chalkboard paper table runner to suggest food and wine pairings, and invite guests to comment on them.Not sure which varietal goes with what food?

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 30, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenIll tell you what: If Hillary Clinton doesnt run for president, a bunch of people will have wasted a whole lot of energy. Why else would Vanity Fair resurrect Monica Lewinsky so we could revisit the tawdry case that blemished the familys first White House go-around? There is a wide body of thinking that has it that rather than being Monicas Revenge, the article by that woman actually will help Hillary when she runs (yes, the word when was intentional), because it will put an end to discussion of the dark period once and for all, declare it old news and remove it from the campaign plate. As someone who covered that awful scandal for more than a This is a yearly column, updated with latest information.Next week is big for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for local public high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were kindergarten students on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make them. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like self-starter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these people steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the folks who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to, but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computer-chair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen or play with a phone or tablet for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are (just look at the kidnapped girls in Nigeria). While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done.

Meteorologists are predicting a smaller than average Atlantic hurricane season; But, between June I and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-maycare types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a ho-hum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and hugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bankjust in time for the holidays. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Always stay wary in hurricane season Our annual message to the graduates For Democrats, its either Hillary or time wasted READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEEFRANKEN, PAGE11 When states rights die, America diesRegardless of political party, how can any American not be disgusted to see a federal judge have the power to override the expressed will of the citizens of the U.S regardless of the issue. One by one, a judge has declared the states stance on marriage as solely being between one man and one woman unconstitutional. This is done despite the votes of the citizens declaring they agree with Gods definition of marriage. This definition of marriage goes back to biblical times and has never been questioned until these people have been put into Judgeships. If there was a question about this, why didnt our forefathers express their concerns about it? Marriage between a man and a woman has never been seriously questioned throughout our history, until now. I have no problem with a persons right to love whoever they choose, however I do have a problem with homosexuals or any others attempts to force their beliefs on the rest of us. In the name of political correctness and tolerance, we are to discard our beliefs and accept these views, even though they go against the expressed will of the vast majority of Americans and Gods.

a few moments (after some rather angry screeching), the problem was solved. So I decided to do the same thing, minus the screeching. When was the last time you called a tech person to help you solve a problem with your TV and Internet service? Therefore, you know what I am about to get into. It is something worse than Rod Sterlings The Twilight Zone. I called the number associated with our TV and Internet service and that is when the games began. One of my problems is that I can remember the day when you talked to a live person. Someone actually living and breathing and living in your own country. How was I to know that the service technicians were somewhere in the hills of India? After punching 2,743 numbers on my phone, I finally got somebody. Actually, it was not really somebody; it was a recording telling me that I was 47th in line waiting for the technician. According to my calculation, it would take me 29 Mondays to get to talk to a live, breathing technician. By the time I was connected to a live technician, I had completely lost my cool and was close to not being collected. One of the problems I faced was trying to explain to this technician what my problem was. The next problem was to understand what he was saying to me. I believe if you are going to service American people, you need to speak good old fashion American without some accent that makes you sound like you are from Mars. Each minute on the phone with this technician caused me to lose more of my cool until I was absolutely hot under the collar. He knew almost as much about my problem as some stray cat in the backyard. Finally, I had enough and thought the best part of valor on my part would it be to bid him adios before I said some things that I would later regret. After I hung up and cooled down a little bit I thought of something. Why dont I just unplug the whole mess and then restart everything. It worked and I did not have to say it with some strange accent. In my devotions that morning, I read from Psalms 33:4 where David says, For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. Sometimes the best course of action is to do it yourself. Not being a doit-yourself guru, it does not come naturally to me. If you blame someone else for your problems, you are pointing the finger in the wrong direction.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The project included 20 miles of new pipeline, a new 1.6 million gallon storage tank and removal of three smaller wastewater treatment plants. The expansion is the latest installment in Utilities larger regionalization effort in southwestern Marion County with the goals of increasing cost-efficiency, protecting water resources and supporting economic development. By expanding the Oak Run facility and extending pipeline, three other smaller and less-efficient plants were shut down and the wastewater redirected to Oak Run. Because the Oak Run facility produces treated water that meets or exceeds advanced wastewater treatment standards, the quality of the water returning to the aquifer has improved, and Utilities has realized cost-savings from operating one plant instead of four. Treated wastewater, instead of being put directly back into the ground, is now pumped to two golf courses at Oak Run and one at Spruce Creek Preserve. This move reduces or eliminates pumping of groundwater for irrigation, and further purifies the treated water as it soaks into the ground. Business expansion requires water and sewer, and Utilities expanded facility and pipelines have made it less expensive for new businesses to connect to necessary utilities. The total regionalization efforts in the southwestern region have cost about $27 million and included a partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in the form of a low-interest State Revolving Fund loan, as well as cooperative funding from developers. The reclaimed portion of the project cost approximately $4.7 million, with the Southwest Florida Water Management District providing 50 percent of the funding. Oak run dedicates wastewater reclamation facility Officials take part in the ribbon cutting.

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING Those who know me would agree that I am cool, calm, and collected, although not in that order. It takes quite a bit to razzle me and get me out of sync with my inner harmony. No matter what happens, I can always find something to amuse me and to laugh it off. I am just that kind of guy. I must confess that, while that is mostly true, I did have an incident this past week that threw all of that out of the window. That is what I get for leaving my window down! The week started out as normal. Mondays are usually my down day. After a full weekend of preparation and ministry, I need one day to really chill out and get my wits about me re-collected. On Mondays, I do not wish to do anything or see anybody or go anywhere. My motto for Monday is simply, just dont call me! I have one rule for Monday and that is it is impossible to oversleep. Whenever I wake up on Monday is when I get up. If ever the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage set the alarm clock for Monday morning, she will have to deal with a grouchy old geezer with an unpleasant attitude. I am sorry, that is the way life is. On this particular Monday when I finally awakened, the first thing I noticed was that my wife had already left the house. Out in the kitchen the coffee had been brewed and waiting for my consumption. There was a nice bowl of oatmeal ready just for me. Life cannot get any better than that! I only wish there were more Mondays in the week. I think when the Beatles sang that song, Eight Days a Week, they were referring to two Mondays. I fixed my coffee, got my oatmeal ready and proceeded into the living room where I could set in my easy chair and watch a little bit of television for as long as I could stay awake. Nothing is quite as nice as a Monday with nothing to do and nobody to bother you while you are doing it. I got situated and took a nice sip of delicious coffee and then proceeded to turn on the television. That is when my Monday exploded. I could not turn the TV on; something was wrong with the service. Usually at times like this, my wife takes care of the situation and resolves the problem. Here I was all on my own and I needed to step up and take care of business. I distinctly remember one occasion when my wife had to face such a situation and she would call the TV service. She would speak to some people there and in Just dont call me on a Monday Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE6 Master the Possibilities begins its summer season next week.

Our league names have a western theme meaning our team names are associated with the old west. Bob Vitale and his cowgirls ambushed the other teams and whupped up on them pretty bad. In fact the three female bowlers on his team, Barbara, Leslie and Helen, took the top honors for the high averages in the entire league. Our yearly awards banquet was held at Candler Community Center and Sonnys Bar-BQue catered our event. The food and service was outstanding and enjoyed by all. Although we do have a competitive spirit the league is strictly a fun league. We go by a set of rules, which all organized sports have, but we discuss them before the season starts and amend the ones that need changing. We make every effort to keep it a fun league. We always need bowlers as conflicts keep taking our bowlers to other endeavors. We invite all our neighbors, (Indigo, Candler Hills, Williamsburg, Providence, Avalon, Crescent Ridge, Friendship, Americana and Renaissance) to join us. Our upcoming season starts with our meeting on Aug. 21 at 2 p.m. at the Galaxy West Lanes on Easy Street. The winter season runs 30 weeks. We will finish up on April 9. The banquet will be on April 16. We start bowling at 2:45 p.m. every Thursday and we do take holidays off. Any questions or comments you may call: Jim Johnson 873-1281, Vic Brumley 351-3674 or Roy Russell 861-1257.Big Red BusThe Big Red Bus will be here again on June 2. The time is from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.at the Recreation parking lot. Each donor will receive a free movie ticket from Fandango. With Memorial Day just past and Fourth of July coming up, the need for all types of blood is great. Holidays always mean more driving and more traffic accidents. School will be out soon, people will be going on vacation, and the Snowbirds have returned to their rousts. The number of donors is less. Please take the time to save a life or three. Each pint can save up to three lives. See you on the Bus.Reel Aging Film SeriesOn May 22, at Live Oak Hall the picture, Nobodys Fool was shown. It must be an old movie because the only actors still living are Melanie Griffith and Bruce Willis. The others are Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was two hours of humor, sadness, and great acting. Quite a few residents showed up to watch as they sat in cool air conditioning instead of the hot outdoors.Travel ToppersHave some seats for July 15 shopping trip to the International Plaza in Tampa.

United Way has volunteers who work with Marion County employers or civic groups to provide a variety of financial education classes.

One local volunteer, Bruce Seaman, also a local church pastor, currently works with 22 prisoners at the Lowell mens prison, four of whom are on death row, but all of whom had committed crimes that began with money troubles.

Also, we are currently seeing strong trade winds and wind shear over the tropical Atlantic, and NOAAs climate models predict these conditions will persist, in part because of El Nio, Bell said. The expectation of near-average Atlantic Ocean temperatures this season, rather than the above-average temperatures seen since 1995, also suggests fewer Atlantic hurricanes. NOAA is rolling out new tools at the National Hurricane Center this year. An experimental mapping tool will be used to show communities their storm surge flood threat. The map will be issued for coastal areas when a hurricane or tropical storm watch is first issued, or approximately 48 hours before the anticipated onset of tropical storm force winds. The map will show land areas where storm surge could occur and how high above ground the water could reach in those areas. Early testing on continued improvements to NOAAs Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting model (HWRF) shows a 10 percent improvement in this years model compared to last year. Hurricane forecasters use the HWRF along with other models to produce forecasts and issue warnings. The HWRF model is being adopted by a number of Western Pacific and Indian Ocean rim nations. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center.

It includes increases both to its community partners in the areas of education, income and health, to its ReadingPals/early literacy program and its financial education program, as well as to its endowment fund. ReadingPals, an early literacy program funded for three years by the Carol and Barney Barnett Foundation has provided an avenue to help struggling kindergarten students with reading skills using volunteers. The program overseen by the United Way is an enhancement to the programs that are administered through the Academy programs in 15 Marion County public elementary schools, all of which have 70 percent or more students on free or reduced lunch. During the 2012/2013 school year 216 students participated and were read to by 162 volunteers. The overall average academy standardized test score improved 18 percent; in comparison to the overall average district standardized test scores which improved seven percent.

Since it was a service project, the Scouts could not accept any rewards. Scouts are also to do a good turn daily. When applying for their next rank these items are looked at carefully. Paul Worthman from Good Shepherd was very good at instructing the scouts and families on flag placement. Hopefully more flags will be available to place next year.

PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELDaniel Trout, his Dad and Logan Baker are placing one of several flags. Paul Worthman from Good Shepherd is explaining how to place the flags. On May 25, eight On Top Of The World residents traveled to the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell. The purpose of the trip was to participate in the Flags For Fallen Vets program occurring across our Nation honoring veterans of all Wars interred at our national cemeteries. Jim Entinger, Keith Buckhold, Tony Magri, Archie Pollard Roger Schwartz, Jack Singer, Bill Walker, and Jim Winter joined over 3,000 volunteers in placing flags on the 120,000 gravesites in the cemetery. Flags For Fallen Vets, a national project, honors all the heroes at rest at national cemeteries by placing a flag on each gravesite of the veteran. The volunteers placed each flag 12 inches from the center of each grave marker. The national cemetery in Bushnell was one of 10 national cemeteries that had not participated in the program until this Memorial Day.

The main driver of this years outlook is the anticipated development of El Nio this summer. El Nio causes stronger wind shear, which reduces the number and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes. El Nio can also strengthen the trade winds and increase the atmospheric stability across the tropical Atlantic, making it more difficult for cloud systems coming off of Africa to intensify into tropical storms. The outlook calls for a 50 percent chance of a below-normal season, a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season, and only a 10 percent chance of an abovenormal season. For the sixmonth hurricane season, which begins June 1, NOAA predicts a 70 percent likelihood of 8 to 13 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 3 to 6 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 2 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These numbers are near or below the seasonal averages of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes, based on the average from 1981 to 2010. The Atlantic hurricane region includes the North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Thanks to the environmental intelligence from NOAAs network of earth observations, our scientists and meteorologists can provide life-saving products like our new storm surge threat map and our hurricane forecasts, said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA administrator. And even though we expect El Nio to suppress the number of storms this season, its important to remember it takes only one land falling storm to cause a disaster. Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center, said the Atlantic which has seen above-normal seasons in 12 of the last 20 years has been in an era of high activity for hurricanes since 1995. However, this high-activity pattern is expected to be offset in 2014 by the impacts of El Nio, and by cooler Atlantic Ocean temperatures than weve seen in recent years. Atmospheric and oceanic conditions across the tropical Pacific are already taking on Hurricane forecast: Maybe fewer storms this season PLEASESEESTORMS, PAGE3 Hurricane tracking map Page 26 PLEASESEEUNITED, PAGE4 000I9NE

Also, we are currently seeing strong trade winds and wind shear over the tropical Atlantic, and NOAAs climate models predict these conditions will persist, in part because of El Nio, Bell said. The expectation of near-average Atlantic Ocean temperatures this season, rather than the above-average temperatures seen since 1995, also suggests fewer Atlantic hurricanes. NOAA is rolling out new tools at the National Hurricane Center this year. An experimental mapping tool will be used to show communities their storm surge flood threat. The map will be issued for coastal areas when a hurricane or tropical storm watch is first issued, or approximately 48 hours before the anticipated onset of tropical storm force winds. The map will show land areas where storm surge could occur and how high above ground the water could reach in those areas. Early testing on continued improvements to NOAAs Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting model (HWRF) shows a 10 percent improvement in this years model compared to last year. Hurricane forecasters use the HWRF along with other models to produce forecasts and issue warnings. The HWRF model is being adopted by a number of Western Pacific and Indian Ocean rim nations. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center.

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING Those who know me would agree that I am cool, calm, and collected, although not in that order. It takes quite a bit to razzle me and get me out of sync with my inner harmony. No matter what happens, I can always find something to amuse me and to laugh it off. I am just that kind of guy. I must confess that, while that is mostly true, I did have an incident this past week that threw all of that out of the window. That is what I get for leaving my window down! The week started out as normal. Mondays are usually my down day. After a full weekend of preparation and ministry, I need one day to really chill out and get my wits about me re-collected. On Mondays, I do not wish to do anything or see anybody or go anywhere. My motto for Monday is simply, just dont call me! I have one rule for Monday and that is it is impossible to oversleep. Whenever I wake up on Monday is when I get up. If ever the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage set the alarm clock for Monday morning, she will have to deal with a grouchy old geezer with an unpleasant attitude. I am sorry, that is the way life is. On this particular Monday when I finally awakened, the first thing I noticed was that my wife had already left the house. Out in the kitchen the coffee had been brewed and waiting for my consumption. There was a nice bowl of oatmeal ready just for me. Life cannot get any better than that! I only wish there were more Mondays in the week. I think when the Beatles sang that song, Eight Days a Week, they were referring to two Mondays. I fixed my coffee, got my oatmeal ready and proceeded into the living room where I could set in my easy chair and watch a little bit of television for as long as I could stay awake. Nothing is quite as nice as a Monday with nothing to do and nobody to bother you while you are doing it. I got situated and took a nice sip of delicious coffee and then proceeded to turn on the television. That is when my Monday exploded. I could not turn the TV on; something was wrong with the service. Usually at times like this, my wife takes care of the situation and resolves the problem. Here I was all on my own and I needed to step up and take care of business. I distinctly remember one occasion when my wife had to face such a situation and she would call the TV service. She would speak to some people there and in Just dont call me on a Monday Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE6 Master the Possibilities begins its summer season next week.

Our league names have a western theme meaning our team names are associated with the old west. Bob Vitale and his cowgirls ambushed the other teams and whupped up on them pretty bad. In fact the three female bowlers on his team, Barbara, Leslie and Helen, took the top honors for the high averages in the entire league. Our yearly awards banquet was held at Candler Community Center and Sonnys Bar-BQue catered our event. The food and service was outstanding and enjoyed by all. Although we do have a competitive spirit the league is strictly a fun league. We go by a set of rules, which all organized sports have, but we discuss them before the season starts and amend the ones that need changing. We make every effort to keep it a fun league. We always need bowlers as conflicts keep taking our bowlers to other endeavors. We invite all our neighbors, (Indigo, Candler Hills, Williamsburg, Providence, Avalon, Crescent Ridge, Friendship, Americana and Renaissance) to join us. Our upcoming season starts with our meeting on Aug. 21 at 2 p.m. at the Galaxy West Lanes on Easy Street. The winter season runs 30 weeks. We will finish up on April 9. The banquet will be on April 16. We start bowling at 2:45 p.m. every Thursday and we do take holidays off. Any questions or comments you may call: Jim Johnson 873-1281, Vic Brumley 351-3674 or Roy Russell 861-1257.Big Red BusThe Big Red Bus will be here again on June 2. The time is from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.at the Recreation parking lot. Each donor will receive a free movie ticket from Fandango.

School will be out soon, people will be going on vacation, and the Snowbirds have returned to their rousts. The number of donors is less. Please take the time to save a life or three. Each pint can save up to three lives. See you on the Bus.Reel Aging Film SeriesOn May 22, at Live Oak Hall the picture, Nobodys Fool was shown. It must be an old movie because the only actors still living are Melanie Griffith and Bruce Willis. The others are Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was two hours of humor, sadness, and great acting. Quite a few residents showed up to watch as they sat in cool air conditioning instead of the hot outdoors.Travel ToppersHave some seats for July 15 shopping trip to the International Plaza in Tampa.

a few moments (after some rather angry screeching), the problem was solved. So I decided to do the same thing, minus the screeching. When was the last time you called a tech person to help you solve a problem with your TV and Internet service? Therefore, you know what I am about to get into. It is something worse than Rod Sterlings The Twilight Zone. I called the number associated with our TV and Internet service and that is when the games began. One of my problems is that I can remember the day when you talked to a live person. Someone actually living and breathing and living in your own country. How was I to know that the service technicians were somewhere in the hills of India? After punching 2,743 numbers on my phone, I finally got somebody. Actually, it was not really somebody; it was a recording telling me that I was 47th in line waiting for the technician. According to my calculation, it would take me 29 Mondays to get to talk to a live, breathing technician. By the time I was connected to a live technician, I had completely lost my cool and was close to not being collected. One of the problems I faced was trying to explain to this technician what my problem was. The next problem was to understand what he was saying to me. I believe if you are going to service American people, you need to speak good old fashion American without some accent that makes you sound like you are from Mars. Each minute on the phone with this technician caused me to lose more of my cool until I was absolutely hot under the collar. He knew almost as much about my problem as some stray cat in the backyard. Finally, I had enough and thought the best part of valor on my part would it be to bid him adios before I said some things that I would later regret. After I hung up and cooled down a little bit I thought of something. Why dont I just unplug the whole mess and then restart everything. It worked and I did not have to say it with some strange accent. In my devotions that morning, I read from Psalms 33:4 where David says, For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. Sometimes the best course of action is to do it yourself. Not being a doit-yourself guru, it does not come naturally to me. If you blame someone else for your problems, you are pointing the finger in the wrong direction.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The project included 20 miles of new pipeline, a new 1.6 million gallon storage tank and removal of three smaller wastewater treatment plants. The expansion is the latest installment in Utilities larger regionalization effort in southwestern Marion County with the goals of increasing cost-efficiency, protecting water resources and supporting economic development. By expanding the Oak Run facility and extending pipeline, three other smaller and less-efficient plants were shut down and the wastewater redirected to Oak Run. Because the Oak Run facility produces treated water that meets or exceeds advanced wastewater treatment standards, the quality of the water returning to the aquifer has improved, and Utilities has realized cost-savings from operating one plant instead of four. Treated wastewater, instead of being put directly back into the ground, is now pumped to two golf courses at Oak Run and one at Spruce Creek Preserve. This move reduces or eliminates pumping of groundwater for irrigation, and further purifies the treated water as it soaks into the ground. Business expansion requires water and sewer, and Utilities expanded facility and pipelines have made it less expensive for new businesses to connect to necessary utilities. The total regionalization efforts in the southwestern region have cost about $27 million and included a partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in the form of a low-interest State Revolving Fund loan, as well as cooperative funding from developers. The reclaimed portion of the project cost approximately $4.7 million, with the Southwest Florida Water Management District providing 50 percent of the funding. Oak run dedicates wastewater reclamation facility Officials take part in the ribbon cutting. Laura Smith and Rosemary Peluso, Oak Run Homeowners Association directors, attended the ceremony. 000I30D $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!! Flowers $AVE!! $AVE!! $AVE!!

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 30, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenIll tell you what: If Hillary Clinton doesnt run for president, a bunch of people will have wasted a whole lot of energy. Why else would Vanity Fair resurrect Monica Lewinsky so we could revisit the tawdry case that blemished the familys first White House go-around? There is a wide body of thinking that has it that rather than being Monicas Revenge, the article by that woman actually will help Hillary when she runs (yes, the word when was intentional), because it will put an end to discussion of the dark period once and for all, declare it old news and remove it from the campaign plate. As someone who covered that awful scandal for more than a This is a yearly column, updated with latest information.Next week is big for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for local public high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were kindergarten students on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make them. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like self-starter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these people steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the folks who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to, but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computer-chair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen or play with a phone or tablet for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are (just look at the kidnapped girls in Nigeria). While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done.

Meteorologists are predicting a smaller than average Atlantic hurricane season; But, between June I and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-maycare types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a ho-hum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and hugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bankjust in time for the holidays. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Always stay wary in hurricane season Our annual message to the graduates For Democrats, its either Hillary or time wasted READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEEFRANKEN, PAGE11 When states rights die, America diesRegardless of political party, how can any American not be disgusted to see a federal judge have the power to override the expressed will of the citizens of the U.S regardless of the issue. One by one, a judge has declared the states stance on marriage as solely being between one man and one woman unconstitutional. This is done despite the votes of the citizens declaring they agree with Gods definition of marriage. This definition of marriage goes back to biblical times and has never been questioned until these people have been put into Judgeships. If there was a question about this, why didnt our forefathers express their concerns about it? Marriage between a man and a woman has never been seriously questioned throughout our history, until now. I have no problem with a persons right to love whoever they choose, however I do have a problem with homosexuals or any others attempts to force their beliefs on the rest of us. In the name of political correctness and tolerance, we are to discard our beliefs and accept these views, even though they go against the expressed will of the vast majority of Americans and Gods.

Bright Ideas for Al Fresco EntertainingDavid Mirassou, wine expert and sixth generation of Americas oldest winemak ing family, offers up these tips:Pressed for time? Chill wine and other drinks in 10 minutes when you layer ice and salt in a bucket, and then fill with cold water.Want guests to keep track of their glasses? Dip the bottom stem of wine glasses in chalkboard paint. Once dry, guests can write their names in chalk or paint pens on their glasses.Looking for conversation starters? Use a chalkboard paper table runner to suggest food and wine pairings, and invite guests to comment on them.Not sure which varietal goes with what food? Use this rule of thumb: Pair lighter foods with lighter wines, and heartier foods with heartier wines. Servings: 4 Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes Dressing: 1/2 cup rinsed and drained canned white beans (from 15-ounce can, save remaining beans for salad) 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 clove garlic Freshly ground pepper to taste Steak salad: 8 ounces mixed baby greens 1 8-ounce grilling steak, seasoned with salt and pepper or Pinot Noir Marinade 1/2 cup quartered and thinly sliced red onion 1/2cup shaved fresh fennel 1 cup baked croutons 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese Place all dressing ingredients in blender or food processor; puree until smooth.

God is the real and final Judge, and he is the one we should be striving to obey by studying his word and trying to live by it. Its obvious these Judges havent. I would love to see these states take a stand for states rights and say no, we are not going against the votes of our people on this or any other issue, period! Several states should join together in this defiance, and other states should support their stance. There is no question our federal government is overstepping their rights and powers as granted by our Constitution and the states better start taking the power back. If states do not take a stand soon, our form of government will collapse and its not a question of if, but when! Liberal Judges need to study our history and learn to respect the individual states and stop trying to change us into something were not. Our country is more divided than I have seen in my lifetime so perhaps the only way we can survive as one nation is for all of us to fully recognize the states rights and beliefs. If an individual doesnt agree with the state, simply move to another that has your value system. If you want gay marriage for example, move to a state that recognizes them. We better solve this and other serious issues that divide our great nation before its too late. States taking their powers back may be our best solution. I pray that God will not remove his blessing from America, we wont survive without it. Wayne Rackley OcalaWhoopi and hateWhoopi Goldberg just lit into and dissed Ben Carson, a black presidential hopeful. Her bile runneth over against the man, because he is not a raving liberal. He is a common sense candidate, and (the biggie) not a politician. The Democratic Party is the party of hate. It took eight and a half decades for people to tell me to my face that they hate me, and they do not want to speak or listen to me, dialog, and discussion are out of the question, and I should shut up. Trying to quote from the five books I read last week holds no weight with useful idiots. They know it all, even though they have never cracked a book. Books are available for a reason. When you read everything from extreme left to right, and middle, you just might learn a thing or two. Does Whoopi not realize how much she has achieved under this unfair system? What more does she want? Only Oprah has eclipsed her in fame, and money. She has reaped the benefits of this unfair system for decades. Only in America could she have enjoyed that level of success. When is enough, enough? I am discriminated against. I want her fame and fortune handed to me. My I.Q exceeds hers, the presidents, and the first ladys. Why them? Why not me? I do not whine, whine, whine. I enjoy life, and do not spend my time looking for reasons to hate. Life is not perfect. We do the best we can, and in America we are to be left alone doing it. Reap what you sow, not what the government sows. Where is that redress department of the government, I hear so much about? We have all had hard patches in our lives. We want our redress, too. My father sat, and cried when he could not buy food for us to eat. I am still here. Life is not easy or fair. We all want an easy path. Life does not work like that. Granted some find ways to milk, and distort the system. But that must be addressed, and corrected. It is government meddling that makes things even more unfair. Get the government out of the way, with its meddlesome laws and regulations, and let the people soar. We can do it. A few do-gooders will have to go as well. Let common sense and fairness prevail. I think it would be entirely fair if I were to replace Whoopi on her television show. She has had it long enough, my turn. What should I do the next time a liberal says they hate me? And they refuse to crack a book? Or listen to a word, and begin their mantra chant. The chants replace common sense, and dialog. Is that a recipe for solutions? Help me I need a snappy comeback! D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 year, and struggled during live TV shots to keep a straight face while using euphemisms about the infamous blue dress, I certainly hope the story finally does move into the who cares? zone. Nobody would give a hoot now, were we all not convinced that Hillary had risen from her mortification as first lady to making a run at the big prize. Republicans certainly are convinced that shell be their opponent. They have made it absolutely clear, with the formation of their select committee on Benghazi. I dont need to remind you who was secretary of state at the time. And if there ever was a sure thing, it would be that former Secretary Hillary Clinton will be called to testify. And even if theres another missing plane, the news networks will take it live. The GOPs can protest all they want that they are strictly motivated by a desire to present the truth about the tragedy in Libya, but this is really just a transparent effort to stick it to the Dems, particularly the one who will be their 2016 standard-bearer. Actually, its a risky strategy. When it comes to brawling, Hillary Clinton is no slouch. When her hearing is all said and done, it may be the Republicans who are left bleeding, exposed as shameless bullies who got a whuppin. However it turns out, itll be the TV blockbuster of 2014 or 2015. We already know what it will be in 2016. As hard as they try to control the GOP debates, the Republican National Committee will not succeed in its effort to add some dignity to their comedy shows. The party leaders are insisting that they will control the format and, by implication, even the questions to be asked, but they are courting a PR disaster the first time they tell one of their candidates who has not been preordained that he or she will not have an equal chance at television glory. And thats the Republican blessing and curse this time around. The party doesnt have a real leading light. While the ones we always hear mentioned are spread out from establishment to rabble rouser, the leadership wants to rein them into a cluster that extends only from right to extreme right. Usually, its the other way around; its the Democrats who are turning on one another. But it looks like they already have their candidate. If Hillary bails, then they dont have one.

While awaiting the race, all the ladies paraded around this elegant facility presenting their beautifully decorated hats and bonnets.

Following the race, the party continued with dancing through the remainder of the evening.

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com the Citizen Maintain the health of your business Advertise in 20~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Theres nothing an Aries Lamb likes less than having to tackle a humdrum task. But finding a creative way to do it can make all the difference. A more exciting time awaits you this weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Finishing up a job on time leaves you free to enjoy your weekend without any Taurean guilt pangs. A romantic attitude from an unlikely source could take you by surprise. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Moving in a new career direction might be seen by some as risky. But if you have both the confidence to see it through and the facts to back you up, it could prove rewarding. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Holding back on a decision might be difficult, considering how long youve waited for this opportunity. But until youre able to resolve all doubts, it could be the wiser course to take. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You still need to move carefully where financial matters are concerned. Better for the Lion to move slowly than pounce on a promising prospect that doesnt keep its promises. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A rejection of an idea you believe in can be upsetting. But dont let it discourage you. Get yourself back on track and use what youve learned to try again.

If so, use the time to look into another project you had previously set aside. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Although a financial problem could be very close to being resolved in your favor, its still a good idea to avoid unnecessary spending for at least a little longer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Support for some unwelcome workplace decisions begins to show up, and continues to build, so that by weeks end, the gregarious Goat is as popular as ever.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Getting into a new situation could prove to be a more difficult experience than you expected. Dont hesitate to ask for advice in coping with some of the more irksome challenges. ELIOT NESS: The Rise and Fall of a Hero By Douglas Perry So if it turns out that Eliot Ness and his gang didnt really shut down Capones Chicago operation and that some of his untouchables could be bribedwhat then are we to make of this quintessential lawman? Like all events and human lives, that of Eliot Ness has its own reality which author Perry carefully profiles. Forget Chicago, he writes, and look to Cleveland, Ohio, where this handsome, charming, 33-year-old man of action, Eliot Ness, purged a corrupt police department in that mobheld city before going after the local mob itself. Trusting no one, he personally worked undercover and implemented firsts in the department like police radios, and lie detectors. The new public safety directors priorities were clear. He was Captain Ahab hunting his big fish. Cleveland, like Chicago before it, was overrun with gangsters. And gangsters undermined society and degraded their fellow man. The Mob and public corruption would be his focus. Ness even reached out to teenage gangs in Clevelands worst neighborhoods, insisting on new basketball courts to get these youths off the streets. The citys newspapers applauded this savvy, gutsy, crime-busting pioneer and hailed him as a hero. Sadly, in his personal life there were no such triumphs. His immoderate drinking and skirt chasing wrecked two of his three marriages. Often broke and depressed at an age when most men are anticipating the second chapter of their lives, Eliot Ness died of a fatal heart attack. He was only 55. In 1947, seeing few options available to him at the time, Ness had decided to run for mayor of Cleveland even though he hadnt voted in seven years. He lost. Eliot gave his concession speech, toasted the victor, and then cheerfully accepted his failed expedition into political life with his customary humor: Whod want an honest politician anyway? he cracked. Ness: Rise and fall of a hero Bookmark Pat Wellington Last week while writing about Jay Leno my thoughts wandered to one of the greatest comedians of all time, Bob Hope. I had done a column about him in 2008; but it certainly bears repeating with some updating. Leslie Towns Hope was born on May 29, 1903. Bob, as we know him, became the worlds most recognized profile and talent from impersonating Charlie Chaplin in front of a firehouse in Cleveland in 1909 to vaudeville, stage, film, and a 60-year contract with NBC for radio and television. His admiration for and entertaining of Americas men and women armed forces at home and overseas, is remembered by everyone. Hope died in 2003, a few months after celebrating his 100th birthday; memories of him and his humor live on forever. Over the years, he gave us lots of political humor: The Democrats have an answer to the unemployment problem. Theyre all running for the presidency. On the many Democrats running for president in 1988. Clinton loves to make long speeches. In fact, this will be the first inaugural address with an intermission. Ronald Reagan is not a typical politician because he doesnt know how to lie, cheat, and steal. Hes always had an agent do that. Ronnies hero is Calvin Coolidge and Nancys is Calvin Klein. On the Reagans. I dont know what people have against Jimmy Carter. Hes done nothing. Campaigning for Ronald Reagan against Carter. Carter wants to go to Washington. Hell feel right at home there he was raised on a nut farm. The last time I played golf with President Ford he hit a birdie and an eagle, a moose, an elk, an aardvark ... Where else but in America could the womens liberation movement take off their bras, then go on TV to complain about their lack of support? You never had to ask his score. Just count the casualties. On Spiro Agnews atrocious golf game. You can tell he used to be a rancher. He squeezes Republicans like hes milking a cow. On Lyndon Johnson. A few months ago Kennedys mother said, You have a choice. Do you want to go to camp this year or run for president? On John F. Kennedy running for president at a young age. I have it on good authority that (Sen. Joseph) McCarthy is going to disclose the names of 2 million communists. He has just got his hands on the Moscow telephone directory. Eisenhower admitted that the budget cant be balanced and McCarthy said the communists are taking over. You dont know what to worry about these days whether the country will be overthrown or overdrawn. Harry had won by such a narrow margin he might not have made it if Bess hadnt voted for her husband. On Harry Trumans narrow victory over Thomas Dewey. He rules the country with an iron fist the same way he plays the piano. On Harry Truman.Hopes philosophical humorA bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you dont need it. I dont feel old. I dont feel anything till noon. Thats when its time for my nap. I grew up with six brothers. Thats how I learned to dance waiting for the bathroom. Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees. I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful. I like to play in the low 70s. If it gets any hotter than that Ill stay in the bar!

Trivia nightOn Wednesday, May 21 the gang showed up at the clubhouse for another rousing session of Cherrywood Trivia. Fred OHern was the quiz master and he challenged the group with a wide variety of questions on topics from history to entertainment; from current events to sports. Naturally, the competition was fierce as teams struggled for the answers. Faces were fixed on the big screen looking at the questions; pencils were gripped with white knuckles as they moved along the answer sheet; jaws were set in grim determination to get the correct answerwell, maybe not. It was more like a lot of light hearted laughing and joking around. Rising to the top was a team that included two new comers to Trivia; Sarah and Frank Blair. They teamed up with Rich Downs and yours truly to emerge number one for the evening and win those all important bragging rights for the next month. Trivia only costs a dollar to play and its a fun time for everyone concerned.

My father was running along beside me as I ventured out on my first two-wheel bike and at the instant that I was free of his secure grasp; riding on my own, I heard him say, Atta boy. From that moment until this, there have been many times when Ive heard that phrase and felt a degree of pride. Unfortunately there is another phrase that I came to know from shortly after my first Atta boy, and that phrase is, Aw crap. It couldnt have been more than a day or two after my first solo ride that filled with confidence; I rode my bike to the local school playground. Naturally I had to try my luck riding up and down the pitchers mound just like my friends were doing. Need I tell you that this was not my smartest choice? My lack of skill left me lying on the ground with skinned knees; bruised arms and other injuries that only boys know about who ride bikes. It was then I heard the words; Aw crap. You might be wondering why Im sharing these words and experiences with you and there is a good reason; really. During my military service; college; a career and several jobs; two marriages; three kids and several grandchildren; I have heard Atta boy hundreds of times. Unfortunately, I have learned that one Aw crap wipes out 1,000 Atta boys. For example, a person can play flawless baseball for an entire season but make an error in the World Series and their whole season is wiped out. A doctor can do 10,000 operations perfectly but goof up one patient and his career is tarnished forever. This week in our monthly news magazine; the Chirp, yours truly mistakenly put in the wrong time for an event that is coming up in June. Of all things it was the Veterans Appreciation Dinner. Aw crap! As any person should do when they make a mistake; I can only apologize and hope that my error doesnt cause anyone to be misinformed. Our Veterans Dinner will be at 5:30 on June 21. Can I hear an Atta boy?Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com I love to go to Washington if only to be near my money. If I have to lay an egg for my country, Ill do it. If you watch a game, its fun. If you play it, its recreation. If you work at it, its golf. Bigamy is the only crime where two rites make a wrong. Middle age is when you still believe youll feel better in the morning. She said she was approaching 40, and I couldnt help wondering from what direction. I have performed for 12 presidents and entertained only six. The only thing chicken about Israel is their soup. The trees in Siberia are miles apart; that is why the dogs are so fast. You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake. PUNSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenOn Sunday, May 25, the Indigo East Community held its Memorial Day pot luck dinner. The tables were decorated with red/white checkered tablecloths, decorated paper plates and centerpieces of vases with red stars, flags or red/white/blue carnations. There was an array of dishes to choose from. The neighbors really went all out. The menu include pasta dishes, barbecued pulled chicken, sausages with peppers and onions, baked beans, baby back pork ribs, fried chicken, stew, American Chop Suey, variety of salads, rolls and garlic bread. After you ate your delicious meal you had many choices for dessert such as apple pie, vanilla pound cake, macaroons, lemon meringue pie, different cookies, raspberry streusel, iced lemon cake, chocolate marble cake, mini eclairs and fruit ray. There was also Diet Coke, Coke, 7Up, ice tea and coffee to drink. A 50/50 raffle was also held. Special thanks to the following people who planned and organized this event: Mary Lou and Fred Masone, Gordon and Cookie Daniels, John and Dianna Grace, Sal and Joan Lanzetti, Candi and Owen Crannell.

While I was not on this tour, from all reports everyone had a great time seeing a vast array of wildlife. On this excursion bald eagles; osprey and assorted herons were spotted along with an 8-foot alligator; turtles; river otters feeding on fish and of course everyones favorites; manatees. The boat was reminiscent of Kon Tiki so it was not the most luxurious yacht on the water but it did add to the rustic flavor of the trip. I imagine it was like traveling with one of the characters seen on Swamp People. One person said, it was an adventure sitting so close to the water. We were happy that everyone had a good time and thanks Marty Duesel for coordinating and leading the expedition.Summer FestHawaii is coming to Cherrywood with a Luau on Monday, June 9. Summer Fest themed parties are always a blast here at the clubhouse and they enjoy great support. Tickets are free but you must have a ticket to gain admission. See Geri and then put on your flowery shirt; lei and straw hat and join in the fun. The doors open at 5 and the meal will be served at 5:30. Enjoy tender succulent pulled pork with yams; Tropical fruit salad and more. Immediately following the delicious dinner you will be entertained by the island sounds of Dawn and Steve Hendrickson playing the steel drums. This gifted duet has been at Cherrywood before and is back by popular demand. Their unique sounds and immense talent are a joy to hear and dance to. You wont want to miss them. Some rather unique talent will be on the program as well. Lovely Pair of Coconuts will be performed some time during the evening. This humorous presentation will be a real delight; or maybe not. This is one dance troupe you just might want to miss. Chris and Mario Zacco sponsor our Summer Fest events and we are grateful to them for bringing excellent talent and wonderful food to us as we celebrate summer. Our snow birds just dont know what theyre missing.

Michael Arvay of Ocala was presented with the scholarship award for his work and leadership with the West Port High School theater troupe, for the recommendation of his educators and directors as well as for his education plans. Janet Shelley is Theatre Educator and Thespian Troupe Director at Marion County Center for the Arts at West Port High School. Ms. Shelley comments, Michael Arvay is an extremely talented actor and a highly motivated student. He has been an integral member of our theater troupe for the past four years. Starting as a freshman, Michael demonstrated intelligence and ability beyond his years. He has always been able to grasp the psychological aspects of the characters he plays, which is indicative of good analytical skills as well as the ability to empathize with another human being. Nancy Atkinson, Director of Chorus and Orchestra at West Port, commented, After 30 years of teaching, it is rare to come across a high school student who is completely passionate about learning for no other reason than to satisfy a need for exploration and curiosity. Michael Arvay has been a precious gift to the performing arts program at West Port High School as well as to me. Michael is involved in chorus, musical theater, acting, orchestra, keyboard and has recently undertaken playing the sitar. He has also served as the Troupes public relations officer.

While I was not on this tour, from all reports everyone had a great time seeing a vast array of wildlife. On this excursion bald eagles; osprey and assorted herons were spotted along with an 8-foot alligator; turtles; river otters feeding on fish and of course everyones favorites; manatees. The boat was reminiscent of Kon Tiki so it was not the most luxurious yacht on the water but it did add to the rustic flavor of the trip. I imagine it was like traveling with one of the characters seen on Swamp People. One person said, it was an adventure sitting so close to the water. We were happy that everyone had a good time and thanks Marty Duesel for coordinating and leading the expedition.Summer FestHawaii is coming to Cherrywood with a Luau on Monday, June 9. Summer Fest themed parties are always a blast here at the clubhouse and they enjoy great support. Tickets are free but you must have a ticket to gain admission. See Geri and then put on your flowery shirt; lei and straw hat and join in the fun. The doors open at 5 and the meal will be served at 5:30. Enjoy tender succulent pulled pork with yams; Tropical fruit salad and more. Immediately following the delicious dinner you will be entertained by the island sounds of Dawn and Steve Hendrickson playing the steel drums. This gifted duet has been at Cherrywood before and is back by popular demand. Their unique sounds and immense talent are a joy to hear and dance to. You wont want to miss them. Some rather unique talent will be on the program as well. Lovely Pair of Coconuts will be performed some time during the evening. This humorous presentation will be a real delight; or maybe not. This is one dance troupe you just might want to miss. Chris and Mario Zacco sponsor our Summer Fest events and we are grateful to them for bringing excellent talent and wonderful food to us as we celebrate summer. Our snow birds just dont know what theyre missing.

Trivia nightOn Wednesday, May 21 the gang showed up at the clubhouse for another rousing session of Cherrywood Trivia. Fred OHern was the quiz master and he challenged the group with a wide variety of questions on topics from history to entertainment; from current events to sports. Naturally, the competition was fierce as teams struggled for the answers. Faces were fixed on the big screen looking at the questions; pencils were gripped with white knuckles as they moved along the answer sheet; jaws were set in grim determination to get the correct answerwell, maybe not. It was more like a lot of light hearted laughing and joking around. Rising to the top was a team that included two new comers to Trivia; Sarah and Frank Blair. They teamed up with Rich Downs and yours truly to emerge number one for the evening and win those all important bragging rights for the next month. Trivia only costs a dollar to play and its a fun time for everyone concerned.

My father was running along beside me as I ventured out on my first two-wheel bike and at the instant that I was free of his secure grasp; riding on my own, I heard him say, Atta boy. From that moment until this, there have been many times when Ive heard that phrase and felt a degree of pride. Unfortunately there is another phrase that I came to know from shortly after my first Atta boy, and that phrase is, Aw crap. It couldnt have been more than a day or two after my first solo ride that filled with confidence; I rode my bike to the local school playground. Naturally I had to try my luck riding up and down the pitchers mound just like my friends were doing. Need I tell you that this was not my smartest choice? My lack of skill left me lying on the ground with skinned knees; bruised arms and other injuries that only boys know about who ride bikes. It was then I heard the words; Aw crap. You might be wondering why Im sharing these words and experiences with you and there is a good reason; really. During my military service; college; a career and several jobs; two marriages; three kids and several grandchildren; I have heard Atta boy hundreds of times. Unfortunately, I have learned that one Aw crap wipes out 1,000 Atta boys. For example, a person can play flawless baseball for an entire season but make an error in the World Series and their whole season is wiped out. A doctor can do 10,000 operations perfectly but goof up one patient and his career is tarnished forever. This week in our monthly news magazine; the Chirp, yours truly mistakenly put in the wrong time for an event that is coming up in June. Of all things it was the Veterans Appreciation Dinner. Aw crap! As any person should do when they make a mistake; I can only apologize and hope that my error doesnt cause anyone to be misinformed. Our Veterans Dinner will be at 5:30 on June 21. Can I hear an Atta boy?Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com I love to go to Washington if only to be near my money. If I have to lay an egg for my country, Ill do it. If you watch a game, its fun. If you play it, its recreation. If you work at it, its golf. Bigamy is the only crime where two rites make a wrong. Middle age is when you still believe youll feel better in the morning. She said she was approaching 40, and I couldnt help wondering from what direction. I have performed for 12 presidents and entertained only six. The only thing chicken about Israel is their soup. The trees in Siberia are miles apart; that is why the dogs are so fast. You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake. PUNSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenOn Sunday, May 25, the Indigo East Community held its Memorial Day pot luck dinner.

One daughter comes and sits with her mom and they make necklaces, etc. with assorted beads. There are others who sit and read to the patients. Isnt wonderful to know there are people who really care?

But until youre able to resolve all doubts, it could be the wiser course to take. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You still need to move carefully where financial matters are concerned. Better for the Lion to move slowly than pounce on a promising prospect that doesnt keep its promises. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A rejection of an idea you believe in can be upsetting. But dont let it discourage you. Get yourself back on track and use what youve learned to try again. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) The early part of the week could find you looking to balance your priorities between your family obligations and your career. Pressures ease by weeks end. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) An associates problem could cause unavoidable delays in moving ahead with your joint venture. If so, use the time to look into another project you had previously set aside. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Although a financial problem could be very close to being resolved in your favor, its still a good idea to avoid unnecessary spending for at least a little longer. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Support for some unwelcome workplace decisions begins to show up, and continues to build, so that by weeks end, the gregarious Goat is as popular as ever. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Congratulations. Deciding to attend a social function you might have earlier tried to avoid could turn out to be one of the best decisions youve made in a long time. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Getting into a new situation could prove to be a more difficult experience than you expected. Dont hesitate to ask for advice in coping with some of the more irksome challenges. ELIOT NESS: The Rise and Fall of a Hero By Douglas Perry So if it turns out that Eliot Ness and his gang didnt really shut down Capones Chicago operation and that some of his untouchables could be bribedwhat then are we to make of this quintessential lawman? Like all events and human lives, that of Eliot Ness has its own reality which author Perry carefully profiles. Forget Chicago, he writes, and look to Cleveland, Ohio, where this handsome, charming, 33-year-old man of action, Eliot Ness, purged a corrupt police department in that mobheld city before going after the local mob itself. Trusting no one, he personally worked undercover and implemented firsts in the department like police radios, and lie detectors. The new public safety directors priorities were clear. He was Captain Ahab hunting his big fish. Cleveland, like Chicago before it, was overrun with gangsters. And gangsters undermined society and degraded their fellow man. The Mob and public corruption would be his focus. Ness even reached out to teenage gangs in Clevelands worst neighborhoods, insisting on new basketball courts to get these youths off the streets. The citys newspapers applauded this savvy, gutsy, crime-busting pioneer and hailed him as a hero. Sadly, in his personal life there were no such triumphs. His immoderate drinking and skirt chasing wrecked two of his three marriages. Often broke and depressed at an age when most men are anticipating the second chapter of their lives, Eliot Ness died of a fatal heart attack. He was only 55. In 1947, seeing few options available to him at the time, Ness had decided to run for mayor of Cleveland even though he hadnt voted in seven years. He lost. Eliot gave his concession speech, toasted the victor, and then cheerfully accepted his failed expedition into political life with his customary humor: Whod want an honest politician anyway? he cracked. Ness: Rise and fall of a hero Bookmark Pat Wellington Last week while writing about Jay Leno my thoughts wandered to one of the greatest comedians of all time, Bob Hope. I had done a column about him in 2008; but it certainly bears repeating with some updating. Leslie Towns Hope was born on May 29, 1903. Bob, as we know him, became the worlds most recognized profile and talent from impersonating Charlie Chaplin in front of a firehouse in Cleveland in 1909 to vaudeville, stage, film, and a 60-year contract with NBC for radio and television. His admiration for and entertaining of Americas men and women armed forces at home and overseas, is remembered by everyone. Hope died in 2003, a few months after celebrating his 100th birthday; memories of him and his humor live on forever. Over the years, he gave us lots of political humor: The Democrats have an answer to the unemployment problem. Theyre all running for the presidency. On the many Democrats running for president in 1988. Clinton loves to make long speeches. In fact, this will be the first inaugural address with an intermission. Ronald Reagan is not a typical politician because he doesnt know how to lie, cheat, and steal. Hes always had an agent do that. Ronnies hero is Calvin Coolidge and Nancys is Calvin Klein. On the Reagans. I dont know what people have against Jimmy Carter. Hes done nothing. Campaigning for Ronald Reagan against Carter. Carter wants to go to Washington. Hell feel right at home there he was raised on a nut farm. The last time I played golf with President Ford he hit a birdie and an eagle, a moose, an elk, an aardvark ... Where else but in America could the womens liberation movement take off their bras, then go on TV to complain about their lack of support? You never had to ask his score. Just count the casualties. On Spiro Agnews atrocious golf game. You can tell he used to be a rancher. He squeezes Republicans like hes milking a cow. On Lyndon Johnson. A few months ago Kennedys mother said, You have a choice. Do you want to go to camp this year or run for president? On John F. Kennedy running for president at a young age. I have it on good authority that (Sen. Joseph) McCarthy is going to disclose the names of 2 million communists. He has just got his hands on the Moscow telephone directory. Eisenhower admitted that the budget cant be balanced and McCarthy said the communists are taking over. You dont know what to worry about these days whether the country will be overthrown or overdrawn. Harry had won by such a narrow margin he might not have made it if Bess hadnt voted for her husband. On Harry Trumans narrow victory over Thomas Dewey. He rules the country with an iron fist the same way he plays the piano. On Harry Truman.Hopes philosophical humorA bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you dont need it. I dont feel old. I dont feel anything till noon. Thats when its time for my nap. I grew up with six brothers. Thats how I learned to dance waiting for the bathroom. Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees. I have seen what a laugh can do. It can transform almost unbearable tears into something bearable, even hopeful. I like to play in the low 70s. If it gets any hotter than that Ill stay in the bar!

Everyone brought their own refreshments but all enjoyed a catered dinner from Lees Chicken. All the ladies were given a red rose as they entered into Palm Grove. Festivities began at 4:30 p.m. with the usual fanfare associated with this long and traditional event. While awaiting the race, all the ladies paraded around this elegant facility presenting their beautifully decorated hats and bonnets. The excitement of the 140th Run for the Roses was again demonstrated as California Chrome proved why he was the best of the best. Following the race, the party continued with dancing through the remainder of the evening. The success of this event and many of the other events they coordinate is due to the outstanding planning, coordinating job done by a group of volunteers known as The Sweet 16. They are Veronica land Gary Andrews, Flo and Ed Feltman, Sandy and Jimmy Hackett, Linda and John McHale, Carol and Bill Pascoe, Emily and Paul Pike, Damian and Audrey Romano, Helen and Steve Routte. A very special thank you to Jeanne and Larry Daland who prepared much of the construction and art work which added to the beauty and splendor of the event.

God is the real and final Judge, and he is the one we should be striving to obey by studying his word and trying to live by it. Its obvious these Judges havent. I would love to see these states take a stand for states rights and say no, we are not going against the votes of our people on this or any other issue, period! Several states should join together in this defiance, and other states should support their stance. There is no question our federal government is overstepping their rights and powers as granted by our Constitution and the states better start taking the power back. If states do not take a stand soon, our form of government will collapse and its not a question of if, but when! Liberal Judges need to study our history and learn to respect the individual states and stop trying to change us into something were not. Our country is more divided than I have seen in my lifetime so perhaps the only way we can survive as one nation is for all of us to fully recognize the states rights and beliefs. If an individual doesnt agree with the state, simply move to another that has your value system. If you want gay marriage for example, move to a state that recognizes them. We better solve this and other serious issues that divide our great nation before its too late. States taking their powers back may be our best solution. I pray that God will not remove his blessing from America, we wont survive without it. Wayne Rackley OcalaWhoopi and hateWhoopi Goldberg just lit into and dissed Ben Carson, a black presidential hopeful. Her bile runneth over against the man, because he is not a raving liberal. He is a common sense candidate, and (the biggie) not a politician. The Democratic Party is the party of hate. It took eight and a half decades for people to tell me to my face that they hate me, and they do not want to speak or listen to me, dialog, and discussion are out of the question, and I should shut up. Trying to quote from the five books I read last week holds no weight with useful idiots. They know it all, even though they have never cracked a book. Books are available for a reason. When you read everything from extreme left to right, and middle, you just might learn a thing or two. Does Whoopi not realize how much she has achieved under this unfair system? What more does she want? Only Oprah has eclipsed her in fame, and money. She has reaped the benefits of this unfair system for decades. Only in America could she have enjoyed that level of success. When is enough, enough? I am discriminated against. I want her fame and fortune handed to me. My I.Q exceeds hers, the presidents, and the first ladys. Why them? Why not me? I do not whine, whine, whine. I enjoy life, and do not spend my time looking for reasons to hate. Life is not perfect. We do the best we can, and in America we are to be left alone doing it. Reap what you sow, not what the government sows. Where is that redress department of the government, I hear so much about? We have all had hard patches in our lives. We want our redress, too. My father sat, and cried when he could not buy food for us to eat. I am still here. Life is not easy or fair. We all want an easy path. Life does not work like that. Granted some find ways to milk, and distort the system. But that must be addressed, and corrected. It is government meddling that makes things even more unfair. Get the government out of the way, with its meddlesome laws and regulations, and let the people soar. We can do it. A few do-gooders will have to go as well. Let common sense and fairness prevail. I think it would be entirely fair if I were to replace Whoopi on her television show. She has had it long enough, my turn. What should I do the next time a liberal says they hate me? And they refuse to crack a book? Or listen to a word, and begin their mantra chant. The chants replace common sense, and dialog. Is that a recipe for solutions? Help me I need a snappy comeback! D.I. Larson Ocala LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 year, and struggled during live TV shots to keep a straight face while using euphemisms about the infamous blue dress, I certainly hope the story finally does move into the who cares? zone. Nobody would give a hoot now, were we all not convinced that Hillary had risen from her mortification as first lady to making a run at the big prize. Republicans certainly are convinced that shell be their opponent. They have made it absolutely clear, with the formation of their select committee on Benghazi. I dont need to remind you who was secretary of state at the time. And if there ever was a sure thing, it would be that former Secretary Hillary Clinton will be called to testify. And even if theres another missing plane, the news networks will take it live. The GOPs can protest all they want that they are strictly motivated by a desire to present the truth about the tragedy in Libya, but this is really just a transparent effort to stick it to the Dems, particularly the one who will be their 2016 standard-bearer. Actually, its a risky strategy. When it comes to brawling, Hillary Clinton is no slouch. When her hearing is all said and done, it may be the Republicans who are left bleeding, exposed as shameless bullies who got a whuppin. However it turns out, itll be the TV blockbuster of 2014 or 2015. We already know what it will be in 2016. As hard as they try to control the GOP debates, the Republican National Committee will not succeed in its effort to add some dignity to their comedy shows. The party leaders are insisting that they will control the format and, by implication, even the questions to be asked, but they are courting a PR disaster the first time they tell one of their candidates who has not been preordained that he or she will not have an equal chance at television glory. And thats the Republican blessing and curse this time around. The party doesnt have a real leading light. While the ones we always hear mentioned are spread out from establishment to rabble rouser, the leadership wants to rein them into a cluster that extends only from right to extreme right. Usually, its the other way around; its the Democrats who are turning on one another. But it looks like they already have their candidate. If Hillary bails, then they dont have one.

Bright Ideas for Al Fresco EntertainingDavid Mirassou, wine expert and sixth generation of Americas oldest winemak ing family, offers up these tips:Pressed for time? Chill wine and other drinks in 10 minutes when you layer ice and salt in a bucket, and then fill with cold water.Want guests to keep track of their glasses? Dip the bottom stem of wine glasses in chalkboard paint. Once dry, guests can write their names in chalk or paint pens on their glasses.Looking for conversation starters? Use a chalkboard paper table runner to suggest food and wine pairings, and invite guests to comment on them.Not sure which varietal goes with what food? Use this rule of thumb: Pair lighter foods with lighter wines, and heartier foods with heartier wines.

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, May 30, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenIll tell you what: If Hillary Clinton doesnt run for president, a bunch of people will have wasted a whole lot of energy. Why else would Vanity Fair resurrect Monica Lewinsky so we could revisit the tawdry case that blemished the familys first White House go-around? There is a wide body of thinking that has it that rather than being Monicas Revenge, the article by that woman actually will help Hillary when she runs (yes, the word when was intentional), because it will put an end to discussion of the dark period once and for all, declare it old news and remove it from the campaign plate. As someone who covered that awful scandal for more than a This is a yearly column, updated with latest information.Next week is big for many young people in Marion County, as they leave high school and move on to the next phase of their lives. Graduation ceremonies are scheduled for local public high schools, a landmark day for a few hundred young adults who are ready to venture out into the world. This graduating class has been through a little more than many of us. These young people were kindergarten students on Sept. 11, 2001, when two planes smashed into the World Trade Center in New York, one hit the Pentagon and another crashed in Pennsylvania, changing the face of America forever. They are venturing into an uncertain world, one filled with fear of terrorism, one filled with eroding freedoms in the name of security. Those of us who have lived through many years of strife and conflict and many years of prosperity and peace, can give some words of advice to the young graduates. Whether they pay attention is up to them, and whether they agree is also up to them. But at least its a point of view that they can use to steer them in whatever direction they want to go. With just a few changes from the previous years columns, here we go: 1. If you have a chance to continue your education, by all means do so. In this era, it is almost impossible to advance yourself in the job market without some sort of post-secondary education. It can be college, junior college, trade school or specialized classes, but make sure you learn as much as you can. Youve made it through one important period youve got your high school diploma. Now look to see what else you can do to learn. Your brains are still relatively young you have a better capacity to learn than many of us old dogs, who find it hard to learn new tricks. 2. If you go to college, learn the difference between opinion and fact from your professors. The good ones will make it clear for you but there are some who will ram their thoughts down your throat, without making it clear that its what they think, not what the world accepts as truth. 3. If you havent already, develop a good work ethic. When it comes to studying and school assignments, the days of someone looking over your shoulder to make sure you are doing what you are supposed to are over. Youre on your own. Your education, or your job, are what you make them. Take a look at employment ads in almost every major field. Theyll say things like self-starter or must work well without supervision. Managers in the business world dont want to have to watch every step that you do. Learn to work by yourself with maximum effort. Remember, the world doesnt owe you a living you have to go out and make your own mark. 4. Choose your friends wisely. Hang around with people who have good goals, who want to make a decent mark in this world. There was a great commercial on TV (I cant remember what product it was for) where one guy in a group of wild young people gets a suit-and-tie job, so the others always want him to buy dinner, because they arent doing a thing. You will undoubtedly encounter some of these people steer clear and be your own person. Some years later, these will be the folks who will come to you begging for a job. 5. Stay active. There will come a time in your life when you cant exercise like you used to, but that day isnt here yet for most of you. Im afraid that we are producing a generation of computer-chair potatoes (as opposed to couch potatoes), those who do nothing but sit in front of a computer screen or play with a phone or tablet for all their free time. Get out and do something. You can walk, you can run, you can play a sport, you can swim just do something. Its good for your mind and your body. 6. Along that same line, learn how to talk to people, face to face. There is entirely too much Facebook, Tweeting, and other social networking going on, but sometimes young people have to talk to someone in person and they dont know what to say, or how to behave. Get off the phone and the computer and speak to people. Someday when youre interviewing for a job, it wont be on Facebook. But someday during that same job interview, your potential boss is going to ask permission to look at your Facebook postings, and all that cute little stuff and foul language that some of you might use will come back to haunt you. 7. Volunteer in the community. There are all sorts of things that need doing. Some involve some physical work, others involve using your brains to help people. Give something back to the community show that you care. You never know someday you may be one of the people who needs help, and maybe there will be folks around who will recall what you did for others, and youll get some help in return. And dont do it for the glory and the recognition. The best volunteers are those who work behind the scenes, who get nothing out of it but personal satisfaction. 8. Finally, keep the faith, and not just religious faith. If you are a religious person, you will be tested. Most of those who are religious find great solace in that faith, so dont let yourself get tempted away from it. But there is another kind of faith, faith in your fellow human beings, faith in the country. Be aware of the times you live in, for sure, but realize there are so many places in the world that are worse off than we are (just look at the kidnapped girls in Nigeria). While we live in the fear that there could be another attack on us somewhere in the U.S., there are people who live with the very real fear of being blown up every day. While we have medical care available to us when we get sick, there are people who succumb to the least little illness because their bodies cant fight diseases, or they have no access to things as simple as an aspirin. As you depart from high school, thank your teachers, your counselors, your school employees. They surely dont get rich doing what they do, but almost all of them love their profession. Someday you will realize how good the days of high school were. But for now, youve reached your goal of getting your diploma, which is a job well done.

Meteorologists are predicting a smaller than average Atlantic hurricane season; But, between June I and Nov. 30, the weather along the East Coast will be predictably unpredictable. When it comes to hurricane preparedness in Florida, residents are often one of two extremes: those who have experienced the devastation that one of these massive storms can wield, worrying that every thunderstorm might be the big one, and the devil-maycare types who wont leave their house until the roof falls in. Both are understandable. Hurricanes are wicked sea monsters, capable of shifting course quickly, pounding the shores with wind and rain strong enough to knock down power lines, uproot trees and gut buildings. Hurricanes can trigger storm surges, tornadoes and catastrophic flooding. There is nothing like a hurricane to remind us of the power of Mother Nature, and on the Florida Peninsula the seaside blessing on three sides of our geography is also its curse. On the other hand, hurricanes are so common that its easy, particularly for lifelong residents, to develop a ho-hum attitude or even hurricane fatigue. After so many years of rushing to grocery stores, gathering emergency supplies, and for those near the coast, boarding up windows, battening down hatches and sitting in traffic jams on evacuation routes, especially when those evacuation routes bring the vehicles here to Marion County many times only to have a light rain pass through it is tempting to forego all the hassle and sit tight until the last possible moment. For the most peaceful summer possible, we suggest a middle ground is the best approach. This is the ideal time to stock up on batteries, flashlights, and even inexpensive generators. Create an emergency kit with these supplies along with bottled water and non-perishable food items. Store them together in a designated spot in the house and conduct family drills so everyone knows what to do. If youre worried about computer data, back it up regularly onto a thumb drive that can be snatched up on the way out the door in the event of evacuation. Sure, it is inconvenient and annoying to deal with hurricanes. But like sticky summers and hugs, they are part of life in Florida. Make an emergency plan, assemble that kit and when the season comes to an end, donate those canned goods to a food bankjust in time for the holidays. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Always stay wary in hurricane season Our annual message to the graduates For Democrats, its either Hillary or time wasted READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTERS TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEEFRANKEN, PAGE11 When states rights die, America diesRegardless of political party, how can any American not be disgusted to see a federal judge have the power to override the expressed will of the citizens of the U.S regardless of the issue. One by one, a judge has declared the states stance on marriage as solely being between one man and one woman unconstitutional. This is done despite the votes of the citizens declaring they agree with Gods definition of marriage. This definition of marriage goes back to biblical times and has never been questioned until these people have been put into Judgeships. If there was a question about this, why didnt our forefathers express their concerns about it? Marriage between a man and a woman has never been seriously questioned throughout our history, until now. I have no problem with a persons right to love whoever they choose, however I do have a problem with homosexuals or any others attempts to force their beliefs on the rest of us. In the name of political correctness and tolerance, we are to discard our beliefs and accept these views, even though they go against the expressed will of the vast majority of Americans and Gods.

a few moments (after some rather angry screeching), the problem was solved. So I decided to do the same thing, minus the screeching. When was the last time you called a tech person to help you solve a problem with your TV and Internet service? Therefore, you know what I am about to get into. It is something worse than Rod Sterlings The Twilight Zone. I called the number associated with our TV and Internet service and that is when the games began. One of my problems is that I can remember the day when you talked to a live person. Someone actually living and breathing and living in your own country. How was I to know that the service technicians were somewhere in the hills of India? After punching 2,743 numbers on my phone, I finally got somebody. Actually, it was not really somebody; it was a recording telling me that I was 47th in line waiting for the technician. According to my calculation, it would take me 29 Mondays to get to talk to a live, breathing technician. By the time I was connected to a live technician, I had completely lost my cool and was close to not being collected. One of the problems I faced was trying to explain to this technician what my problem was. The next problem was to understand what he was saying to me. I believe if you are going to service American people, you need to speak good old fashion American without some accent that makes you sound like you are from Mars. Each minute on the phone with this technician caused me to lose more of my cool until I was absolutely hot under the collar. He knew almost as much about my problem as some stray cat in the backyard. Finally, I had enough and thought the best part of valor on my part would it be to bid him adios before I said some things that I would later regret. After I hung up and cooled down a little bit I thought of something. Why dont I just unplug the whole mess and then restart everything. It worked and I did not have to say it with some strange accent. In my devotions that morning, I read from Psalms 33:4 where David says, For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth. Sometimes the best course of action is to do it yourself. Not being a doit-yourself guru, it does not come naturally to me. If you blame someone else for your problems, you are pointing the finger in the wrong direction.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

The project included 20 miles of new pipeline, a new 1.6 million gallon storage tank and removal of three smaller wastewater treatment plants. The expansion is the latest installment in Utilities larger regionalization effort in southwestern Marion County with the goals of increasing cost-efficiency, protecting water resources and supporting economic development. By expanding the Oak Run facility and extending pipeline, three other smaller and less-efficient plants were shut down and the wastewater redirected to Oak Run. Because the Oak Run facility produces treated water that meets or exceeds advanced wastewater treatment standards, the quality of the water returning to the aquifer has improved, and Utilities has realized cost-savings from operating one plant instead of four. Treated wastewater, instead of being put directly back into the ground, is now pumped to two golf courses at Oak Run and one at Spruce Creek Preserve. This move reduces or eliminates pumping of groundwater for irrigation, and further purifies the treated water as it soaks into the ground. Business expansion requires water and sewer, and Utilities expanded facility and pipelines have made it less expensive for new businesses to connect to necessary utilities. The total regionalization efforts in the southwestern region have cost about $27 million and included a partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in the form of a low-interest State Revolving Fund loan, as well as cooperative funding from developers. The reclaimed portion of the project cost approximately $4.7 million, with the Southwest Florida Water Management District providing 50 percent of the funding. Oak run dedicates wastewater reclamation facility Officials take part in the ribbon cutting.

Friday, May 30, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING Those who know me would agree that I am cool, calm, and collected, although not in that order. It takes quite a bit to razzle me and get me out of sync with my inner harmony. No matter what happens, I can always find something to amuse me and to laugh it off. I am just that kind of guy. I must confess that, while that is mostly true, I did have an incident this past week that threw all of that out of the window. That is what I get for leaving my window down! The week started out as normal. Mondays are usually my down day. After a full weekend of preparation and ministry, I need one day to really chill out and get my wits about me re-collected. On Mondays, I do not wish to do anything or see anybody or go anywhere. My motto for Monday is simply, just dont call me! I have one rule for Monday and that is it is impossible to oversleep. Whenever I wake up on Monday is when I get up. If ever the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage set the alarm clock for Monday morning, she will have to deal with a grouchy old geezer with an unpleasant attitude. I am sorry, that is the way life is. On this particular Monday when I finally awakened, the first thing I noticed was that my wife had already left the house. Out in the kitchen the coffee had been brewed and waiting for my consumption. There was a nice bowl of oatmeal ready just for me. Life cannot get any better than that! I only wish there were more Mondays in the week. I think when the Beatles sang that song, Eight Days a Week, they were referring to two Mondays. I fixed my coffee, got my oatmeal ready and proceeded into the living room where I could set in my easy chair and watch a little bit of television for as long as I could stay awake. Nothing is quite as nice as a Monday with nothing to do and nobody to bother you while you are doing it. I got situated and took a nice sip of delicious coffee and then proceeded to turn on the television. That is when my Monday exploded. I could not turn the TV on; something was wrong with the service. Usually at times like this, my wife takes care of the situation and resolves the problem. Here I was all on my own and I needed to step up and take care of business. I distinctly remember one occasion when my wife had to face such a situation and she would call the TV service. She would speak to some people there and in Just dont call me on a Monday Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE6 Master the Possibilities begins its summer season next week.

Our league names have a western theme meaning our team names are associated with the old west. Bob Vitale and his cowgirls ambushed the other teams and whupped up on them pretty bad. In fact the three female bowlers on his team, Barbara, Leslie and Helen, took the top honors for the high averages in the entire league. Our yearly awards banquet was held at Candler Community Center and Sonnys Bar-BQue catered our event. The food and service was outstanding and enjoyed by all. Although we do have a competitive spirit the league is strictly a fun league. We go by a set of rules, which all organized sports have, but we discuss them before the season starts and amend the ones that need changing. We make every effort to keep it a fun league. We always need bowlers as conflicts keep taking our bowlers to other endeavors. We invite all our neighbors, (Indigo, Candler Hills, Williamsburg, Providence, Avalon, Crescent Ridge, Friendship, Americana and Renaissance) to join us. Our upcoming season starts with our meeting on Aug. 21 at 2 p.m. at the Galaxy West Lanes on Easy Street. The winter season runs 30 weeks. We will finish up on April 9. The banquet will be on April 16. We start bowling at 2:45 p.m. every Thursday and we do take holidays off.

The time is from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.at the Recreation parking lot. Each donor will receive a free movie ticket from Fandango.

School will be out soon, people will be going on vacation, and the Snowbirds have returned to their rousts. The number of donors is less. Please take the time to save a life or three. Each pint can save up to three lives. See you on the Bus.Reel Aging Film SeriesOn May 22, at Live Oak Hall the picture, Nobodys Fool was shown. It must be an old movie because the only actors still living are Melanie Griffith and Bruce Willis. The others are Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Here are some practical suggestions for inclusion in any home emergency preparations: Cordless telephones will not work if the power is off. Make sure you have a regular phone and/or cell phone as a backup for emergencies. Have a battery-powered radio on hand and a supply of fresh batteries. Keep a flashlight and extra batteries handy. Have a first aid kit on hand, including prescription medicines which may need to be refilled. Make sure you have at least a threeday supply of bottled water.

Also, we are currently seeing strong trade winds and wind shear over the tropical Atlantic, and NOAAs climate models predict these conditions will persist, in part because of El Nio, Bell said. The expectation of near-average Atlantic Ocean temperatures this season, rather than the above-average temperatures seen since 1995, also suggests fewer Atlantic hurricanes. NOAA is rolling out new tools at the National Hurricane Center this year. An experimental mapping tool will be used to show communities their storm surge flood threat. The map will be issued for coastal areas when a hurricane or tropical storm watch is first issued, or approximately 48 hours before the anticipated onset of tropical storm force winds. The map will show land areas where storm surge could occur and how high above ground the water could reach in those areas. Early testing on continued improvements to NOAAs Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting model (HWRF) shows a 10 percent improvement in this years model compared to last year. Hurricane forecasters use the HWRF along with other models to produce forecasts and issue warnings. The HWRF model is being adopted by a number of Western Pacific and Indian Ocean rim nations. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center.

Sierra Leone missionary to speakSpecial Missions speaker: Dr. Cedric King was part of a sevenperson team that traveled to Sierra Leone in West Africa on behalf of the Jesus Film Harvest Partners Ministries 2014 Mission.

The ceremony will start at 6 p.m. Baccalaureate ceremony will be at the schools Performing Arts Center on Sunday, June 1, at 3 pm.United Way hopes to raie $6.7 millionRecently, the United Way announced at a gathering of key supporters that it has set a goal to raise $6.7 million in three years. It includes increases both to its community partners in the areas of education, income and health, to its ReadingPals/early literacy program and its financial education program, as well as to its endowment fund. ReadingPals, an early literacy program funded for three years by the Carol and Barney Barnett Foundation has provided an avenue to help struggling kindergarten students with reading skills using volunteers. The program overseen by the United Way is an enhancement to the programs that are administered through the Academy programs in 15 Marion County public elementary schools, all of which have 70 percent or more students on free or reduced lunch. During the 2012/2013 school year 216 students participated and were read to by 162 volunteers. The overall average academy standardized test score improved 18 percent; in comparison to the overall average district standardized test scores which improved seven percent. As the final year of funding begins in the fall 2014, continuing ReadingPals in the future as well as expanding the program is critical to working on the goal of INDEX Bookmark..............................13 Cherrywood.........................15 Classifieds.............................30 Indigo East............................14 Oak Run.................................17 OTOW.....................................28 Out to Pastor..........................5 Pun Alley...............................13 Puzzles...................................20 Spruce Creek North...........14CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, MAY 30, 2014 VOLUME 18 NUMBER 52 www.smcitizen.com32~ Friday, May 30, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Placing Memorial Day flags Local Boy Scouts honor veterans buried at Good Shepherd BY MIKE ROPPEL Special to the CitizenBoy Scouts from troop 707 took time out of their three days off from school to place flags on graves at Good Shepherd Memorial Gardens in conjunction with Memorial Day. Since it was a service project, the Scouts could not accept any rewards. Scouts are also to do a good turn daily. When applying for their next rank these items are looked at carefully. Paul Worthman from Good Shepherd was very good at instructing the scouts and families on flag placement. Hopefully more flags will be available to place next year. For more information on Good Shepherd call 352361-7966. Boy Scout information can be obtained from Jim or Stephanie Salmon at 352-843-0093. PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELDaniel Trout, his Dad and Logan Baker are placing one of several flags. Paul Worthman from Good Shepherd is explaining how to place the flags. On May 25, eight On Top Of The World residents traveled to the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell. The purpose of the trip was to participate in the Flags For Fallen Vets program occurring across our Nation honoring veterans of all Wars interred at our national cemeteries. Jim Entinger, Keith Buckhold, Tony Magri, Archie Pollard Roger Schwartz, Jack Singer, Bill Walker, and Jim Winter joined over 3,000 volunteers in placing flags on the 120,000 gravesites in the cemetery. Flags For Fallen Vets, a national project, honors all the heroes at rest at national cemeteries by placing a flag on each gravesite of the veteran. The volunteers placed each flag 12 inches from the center of each grave marker. The national cemetery in Bushnell was one of 10 national cemeteries that had not participated in the program until this Memorial Day. Over 6,500 volunteers placed 230,000+ American flags at three of the remaining national cemeteries. It is the goal of the program to enlist the support of volunteers at the remaining seven national OTOW residents help with decorations at Florida National Cemetery Tony Magri, Bill Walker, Archie Pollard, Jim Entinger, Jim Winter, Jack Singer, Keith Buckhold, and Roger Schwartz PLEASESEEOTOW PAGE9 In its 2014 Atlantic hurricane season outlook issued recently, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center is forecasting a near-normal or below-normal season. The main driver of this years outlook is the anticipated development of El Nio this summer. El Nio causes stronger wind shear, which reduces the number and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes. El Nio can also strengthen the trade winds and increase the atmospheric stability across the tropical Atlantic, making it more difficult for cloud systems coming off of Africa to intensify into tropical storms. The outlook calls for a 50 percent chance of a below-normal season, a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season, and only a 10 percent chance of an abovenormal season. For the sixmonth hurricane season, which begins June 1, NOAA predicts a 70 percent likelihood of 8 to 13 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 3 to 6 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 2 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These numbers are near or below the seasonal averages of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes, based on the average from 1981 to 2010. The Atlantic hurricane region includes the North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Thanks to the environmental intelligence from NOAAs network of earth observations, our scientists and meteorologists can provide life-saving products like our new storm surge threat map and our hurricane forecasts, said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA administrator. And even though we expect El Nio to suppress the number of storms this season, its important to remember it takes only one land falling storm to cause a disaster. Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center, said the Atlantic which has seen above-normal seasons in 12 of the last 20 years has been in an era of high activity for hurricanes since 1995. However, this high-activity pattern is expected to be offset in 2014 by the impacts of El Nio, and by cooler Atlantic Ocean temperatures than weve seen in recent years. Atmospheric and oceanic conditions across the tropical Pacific are already taking on Hurricane forecast: Maybe fewer storms this season PLEASESEESTORMS, PAGE3 Hurricane tracking map Page 26 PLEASESEEUNITED, PAGE4 000I9NE
