Meanwhile, in the left photo, Joe Gignac blew Taps during the May 30 ceremony at Cherrywood. MARION COUNTY FIRE RESCUE PHOTOKingsland Country Estates fireMarion County Fire Rescue put down a fire early in the afternoon in Kingsland Country Estates on Southwest 101st Place Road. Twelve units responded and the first firefighters on the scene found the resident outside but her cat was still inside. The cat was located and pulled out but, despite CPR efforts, did not survive. While searching for the cat, Sylvester, firefighters located some family photos on the wall and were able to save them. A new but not quite finished Torah was brought to On Top of the World on Sunday to have the remaining letters placed by the scribe. Volunteers took turns touching him or the quill. The quill had to be put in the ink well often to be able to continue placing the letters. In addition to a different alphabet that we use, the Hebrew language is read and written right to left. Each character in the Torah must be formed perfectly. After all the letters had been placed it was rolled up and placed in its cover but not before Ken Colen, the son of Sidney and Ina Colen, held it up and turned around while holding the Torah partially unrolled so the audience could see it before it was covered. After the Torah was covered, Ken carried it outside in the rain but the chuppa kept it dry as the people paraded to the Circle Square Commons and back. Everyone was invited to the feast and dancing to a two-man band after the parade. Some danced with the Torah while others had children on their shoulders. Torah at OTOW PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELIn the left photo, before the Torah is rolled up, Ken Colen is showing the finished Torah to the viewers. In the right photo, The scribes father-in-law has the privilege of helping the scribe place the last letter. More photos on Page 5.

All contributions are subject to editing for clarity, taste, and style.Member of the Community Papers of Florida Listening to news programs, particularly the yakity-yak-my-viewis-the-only-right-view programs you might come away with the idea that there is a war on everything. Most of the time, someone is for a certain war because of some political advantage it will give them in the publics eye. Is it just me or have you noticed people will create a war on something just to get in the limelight? They are not against something they just know someone is; that someone is someone that goes to the polls and votes, and they want their vote. The greatest war going on in our society today is the war on common sense. There, I said it. And I stand by what I said. There is a tremendous attack on common sense in our society today. I must confess that common sense is not as common as it once was and perhaps never was. I like to think that somewhere along the line a few good people have entertained common sense. It would be nice if just some time these politicians would simply come together and establish a law, merely one law that makes sense. In order to make one law that makes sense they have to have 999 other laws that confuse it to such a degree that it no longer makes sense. Common sense would tell me if I do not have enough money I cannot purchase a certain thing. That does not work in Washington. Oh no. In Washington, affording something financially is never part of the equation. The only thing important in that equation is, does this make somebody who voted for me happy enough to vote for me again? It takes a lot of good old-fashioned common sense to take care of money and run my household budget in such a way that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is happy. Taking care of money and making sure that we do not spend money on things we do not need is part of the common sense that helps me balance my checkbook month after month. Common sense says I need to balance my checkbook. Washington sense says, write checks until you have no more checks to write then order more checks. Forget all that stuff about balance. If we run out of money, we just print more money. Does that really make sense? Not only is common sense eliminated from the financial aspects of our country, but health issues are also thrown to the curb. Common sense would tell me I need to eat properly. Washington sense says, eat what I tell you to eat. I have seen some of the stuff that they, the government, want us to eat. The government wants to come into our school cafeterias and force-feed our children a proper diet. In most of these schools, I cannot speak for all of them, the children have the common sense to throw it away. Common sense says if it does not look good or taste good it probably aint good for you. The Bible has a lot to say about this. My favorite verse of Scripture is, Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17). I need to make common sense the standard of my day-to-day living based upon the common teaching of the Word of God.Rev. James L.

Every human being in the world experiences fear of some kind and that fact alone teaches us that we are all brothers and sisters in our commonality. Overcoming fear is what we call courage. Doing heroic acts in the face of danger; proving that we are up to any challenge; a willingness to give up our cherished lives for an ideal; that is the inner strength that we call courage. This week we mark the 70-year anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944. For most of us that date has little significance but in the history of the World; that date is huge. If I may, let me share a few observations about the day; about the sacrifice and about the courage of those who fought. First, there were many D-Days during the Second World War. Simply put, it marked the day of the invasion. There were D-Days at Iwo Jima; Anzio; the Philippines; etc. and the second day after the invasion was marked by D plus 1 or D plus 2; and so on. For modern history the biggest D-Day was the invasion of Fortress Europe at Normandy, France. 5,000 ships; 30,000 vehicles; 160,000 men and women and an additional 12,500 paratroopers would take part in the initial assault. If you can picture feeding; housing; clothing; arming; fueling; and providing sanitary conditions for a force that size it will give you a slight sense of the magnitude of the operation. Drawing down from the big picture, let us consider the individual soldier riding in a flimsy landing craft on rough seas toward a beach littered with booby traps and protected by a determined enemy armed with machine guns and artillery. In spite of those overwhelming odds our young men came ashore and continued across several hundred yards of open sand facing heavy fire from the German positions. Their buddies were dropping all around them and the noise of exploding artillery added to the chaos and terror. On that one day, June 6, over 6,600 Americans gave up all of their tomorrows so that we could have today. Thousands more would die in the months that followed until the final victory over Nazi Germany was achieved. Most of those who fought in this battle are now gone and few of us will take time to note the significance of that day so long ago. That is too bad because June 6 should be an example of what courage can do. While overcoming their own personal fears, collectively these young Americans freed a continent from horrendous evil. An entire generation steeled itself with raw courage and determination. They were willing to give their all to make the world a better and safer place. That should give us all pause to reconsider our situations. What fears do we face in our lives? Perhaps its dealing with health issues; death; lack of mobility; a loss of friends and neighbors or poverty. We need to look back on episodes in our history when people met the challenges of life not without fear but with courage and determination that conquered that fear. Are our situations worse than crossing a wind tossed English Channel under enemy fire at the young age of 18 or 19? We Americans are a courageous people; our history has proven that. We take pride not in being taken care of; but in taking care of others. Traditionally we dont need to be told to do the right thing; thats in our nature. On this June 6, let us all remember the lessons learned on this day. With a note of gratitude to those who liberated Europe; let us be inspired to face the challenges of our lives with courage. To those of the Greatest Generation who are still with us; we thank you for all your accomplishments and for your legacy of courage.If you have suggestions or comments regarding the Cherrywood Section of your Citizen Newspaper, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

Friday, June 6, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 6, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Try using that Aries charm to warm up the usual set of workplace naysayers, and then back it up with a solid block of facts and figures to sell your idea to your colleagues. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) While nothing can deter a determined Bovine from following a course you believe in, it helps to have some supporting data and statements by trusted colleagues to make your case. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Take advantage of new information that could help make your career transition easier. The weekend is a good time to re-establish relationships with people you havent seen in a while. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal matters demand your attention as once-stable situations begin to shift. Quick action to shore things up is called for in order to avoid more problems down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Although your financial picture begins to brighten, thrift and caution are still the watchwords for fiscally astute Leos and Leonas to live by. Expect news about a family matter. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Before you try to blame a colleague for a workplace problem, make sure you have the proof to back you up. Make some quiet inquiries on your own to try to solicit more information. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Trying to cheer up a depressed friend or downcast family member can be difficult. But keep at it, and your efforts should soon pay off in ways you might have never expected. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Taking a new look at an old and frequently recurring problem might lead you to consider making some surprising changes in the way you had been handling it up till now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Despite what the naysayers might say, setting your sights on a new goal could be one of the smartest things the typically sagacious Sagittarian has done in a long time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Rebuilding an unraveling relationship wont be easy. But you can do it, if you really want to. Just remember to keep the lines of communication open between the two of you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new friendship could develop into a close relationship. Meanwhile, reassure an old friend who might be feeling neglected that he or she is still an important part of your life. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might be feeling that youre still in over your head as you choir loft? Well, this is your opportunity to skip all that!

(My mother had a blouse just like it; it was cool to dress alike back then) I am standing in front of some whimsical animals made out of car parts. I was 17 years old and it was my idea to come to this place. It was 50 years ago and I was at the New York Worlds Fair at the General Motors Pavilion. There were so many wonderful things to see in those days! The future was in our hands. We saw the beginnings of the computer age and the picture phone (think video conferencing) super cars, new transportation systems of the future. We loved the auto animatronic dolls in the Pepsi Exhibit now at The Magic Kingdom in the Small, Small World Attraction. And there was the G.E. Carousel of Progress, now at Epcot, with its advances in making life easier for us all. And wonder of wonders, National Cash register had invented something called NCR paper, carbonless carbon paper that I thought was just amazing! Looking back at the 50 years since the Fair erected its iconic symbol of the Unisphere, a metal sculpture of a globe symbolizing a united world, so much history has passed that continues to influence us today. Many areas moved ahead quickly with advances in medicine, education, industry, science and yes, even in religion. In the 50 years since the Unisphere, Judaism, always evolving, made some major changes and advances. What seems to stand out prominently are the roles and recognition given to women especially in the more liberal branches of the faith. By the early s the Reform and Reconstructionist movements were ordaining rabbis. The Conservative Movement followed in the mid 1980s although women had been counted as part of the minyon (religious quorum) by the Conservative movement early in the 1970s. The Reform and Reconstructionist branches allowed this in the 70s as well. In 1968, the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College was founded and Reconstructionism, a fourth movement in Judaism had a theological base in which to train rabbis and cantors. Always equalitarian from inception it would go on to ordain gay and lesbian rabbis as well. The movement introduced the concept of the bat mitzvah, the female equivalent to the bar mitzvah, when a young 13 year old is called to the Torah and becomes an adult member of the Jewish community. While the concept has been around since the 1920s, its popularity took off in the late 1960s and continues unto this day. In the years since Unisphere, there have been new interpretations of the Torah in view of modern living. New discoveries in Biblical archeology have shed new light on the ancient Biblical narratives giving us more insight into what the Bible is trying to impart to us. The excavation of places like Masada where Jewish zealots in 70 C.E. gave up their lives rather than live under Roman oppression, brought Jewish history to the forefront and connected those of the Jewish faith to history and survival. While the more liberal branches of Judaism have gained momentum these past 50 years, traditional Judaism has also seen changes. Women are gaining more rights among certain traditional groups and they are taking on more roles as leaders within a traditional framework. A movement/trend towards returning to Jewish roots also became popular in the mid s. A person returning to Judaism from another faith or from lack of observance was called a baal teshuvah, one who returns. Many of these returnees to Judaism were products of mixed marriages and those with little Jewish education who wished to delve more into their faith. Many traveled to Israel to study in yeshivahs, religious academies, and many became followers of charismatic rabbis. Zionism too has blossomed. With the victory of the 1967 War, Jewish pride swelled to new heights and support of the Jewish State took on new precedence. Tourism to Israel also became popular and just about every Jewish group had pilgrimages to Israel. I have a photograph. It is in black and white taken by a Kodak Instamatic camera. I am standing in front of the Unisphere, a stolen moment captured from the millions who also wanted a shot in front of the iconic metal sculpture. I wonder: when will we have one world? 50 years after visiting the Unisphere Judis Journal Judi Siegal RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 000I31E ( 352) 622-4467 2520 NW 6th Street Ocala, FL 34475 www.avmmobility.com Locally Owned and Operated Since 1997 Specializing in Accessible Vehicles MON THRU SAT 9:00AM-6:00PM; SUN 11AM-5PM *PRICES GOOD ONLY AT THE OCALA SR 200 LOCATION ALL PRODUCTS THRIFT STORE QUALITY OR BETTER 6285 SW SR 200 OCALA, FL 352-237-2180 352-237-2180 FLOWERS BAKING CO.

On this date in 1824, Noah Cushing patented the washing machine and in 1869, Ives W McGaffey patented the vacuum cleaner. Obviously, there will be no dirty jokes in this column.Its not the detergentA boy, about 8 years old, selected a box of laundry detergent at the corner Mom & Pop grocery picking. The grocer asked the boy if he had a lot of laundry to do. No, the boy said, Im going to wash my frog. But if you wash your frog in this, hell get sick. In fact, it might even kill him. But the boy was not to be stopped and purchased the detergent. About a week later the boy was back in the store to buy some candy. The grocer asked how his frog was doing. Oh, he died, the boy said. The grocer said, I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on your frog. The boy replied, I dont think it was the detergent that killed him. Oh? What was it then? I think it was the spin cycle!A sound storyA high school science class was learning about how sound travels. If youre in a vacuum, and someone calls your name, can you hear it? the teacher inquired. One eager boy raised his hand. That depends, he answered. Is it on or off?Power lunchA salesman knocked on the door of a house and an old lady answered. He began, Maam, Im selling the newest innovation in vacuums, this is the greatest little machine I have seen in a long time. Go away! said the lady. I havent got any money! and she proceeded to close the door. Quick as a flash, he pushed the door wide open. Dont be too hasty! he said. Then he dumped a mixture of ketchup, salsa, and mud on her carpet. He said, If this vacuum doesnt clean up that mess, I will eat it! The lady stepped back and said, Well I hope youve got a good appetite, because they cut off my electricity this morning.Dry cleaningIn the window of an appliance store: Dont kill your wife. Let our washing machine do the dirty work. Support bacteria. Theyre the only culture some people have. If space is a vacuum, who changes the bag? One person can keep a fishing line clear, but it takes two to tangle. I may not be a great artist, but I am really good at drawing a blank.Dirty laundry?A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbor hanging her laundry outside. That laundry is not very clean, she said. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap. Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang her laundry to dry, the young woman would make the same comments. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder how that happened? The husband said, I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.Clean sweepJim asked his friend, Tony, whether he had bought his wife anything for her birthday. Yes, came the answer from Tony, Ive bought her a belt and a bag. That was very nice, Jim added, I hope she appreciated the thought. Tony smiled as he replied, So do I, and hopefully the vacuum cleaner will work better now.Ironclad contractA clown moved into an apartment block reserved solely for circus performers. He liked everything about the apartment. It was well equipped with fancy stove, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, washer and dryer. The only thing missing was an ironing board, something on which he could press his circus uniform after washing it. Why is there no ironing board? he asked the agent. Both the lion tamer and the juggler have one. You use the window ledge, like the other clowns, explained the agent. Its in your contract. Every clown has a sill for ironing.

Friday, June 6, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 6, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenWeve all seen the pharmaceutical ads on TV you know, the ones that typically offer relief from something like, say, itchy elbows. Once you get past the narrative and the video, which shows the deep shame that anyone feels when scratching his elbow and introduces the blessed relief of some medication named ArmBend-numb or whatever, we get the long disclaimer: Do not use Arm-bend-numb within 16 hours of eating. Arm-bend-numb can cause feeling of deep depression, a variety of cancers and problems with your immune system that can result in death. I dont know about you, but by the time thats through, Ive decided to take my chances with the itchy elbow. The drug companies probably hate the disclosures that cut into their profits, but we get to decide whether relief is worth it. Right now, we get some sort of disclosure from the airlines, which are required to tell us the full cost of flying from here to there, listing their base price, along with the mandatory taxes and fees. Luggage and just about everything else are extra. Currently, the airlines need to inform us about all that when we are looking for the best fares. Theyre not happy about it, so in true American corporate fashion theyve influence-peddled members of Congress to try to introduce legislation allowing airlines to advertise only the base price, and add the other charges once youve gone several steps into the booking process. The deceit even extends to the title of the bill. Its the Transparent Airlines Act of 2014. Notwithstanding the shameless dishonesty, the airlines do make one semi-valid point, and that is that other biggies in the travel industry, such as hotels and carrental companies, are allowed to get away with the same subterfuge. Weve all bristled at the carrental counter when were informed that the rate weve been quoted excludes a long list of fees that often exceed the advertised rental rate. And how many of us have been outraged when our hotel adds on all the taxes, fees and, my personal favorite, the facility charge for just being in the building. Our stay ends up costing not just an arm and a leg, but another limb as well ... probably the one with the itchy elbow. Yes, the airlines have a right to be treated equally. But the answer is not to allow their flimflam, but to require hotels and car rental companies to end theirs and make clear what were really going to pay when we select one. After a while, it gets truly wearisome that we live in such a caveat emptor society, where we have to expend so much energy trying to avoid the legalized swindle. The reason its not a crime is because usually our lawmakers are receiving financial incentives from those who want to get away with their chicanery. Maybe our campaign ads should come with a disclaimer like the drug commercials. Something like, Electing this candidate may do serious harm to this country and have a negative effect on your own life. Because these days, when it comes to all the rhetoric, more and more people just arent buying it. When I was in elementary school (as my children say, back in the dark ages when dinosaurs roamed the Earth), I was pretty good at spelling. When teams were chosen for athletic events, I was one of the last ones taken. But when it came to picking sides for a spelling bee, I was usually the first boy chosen, if I wasnt the captain doing the choosing. Yes, I was good at it. Spelling words at or slightly above my grade level (as they measure it now, they didnt then) was easy for me. I cant tell you how many times I led the boys to victory (maybe thats why the girls didnt like me). I thought of all this last Thursday night as I watched two boys tie for the championship in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. I never heard of any of the words that the pair of finalists battled over. Each had a chance to win. First one misspelled antigropelos, and all the other one had to do was spell his word right and he would have won. But he fouled up corpsbruder, so the competition continued. In alternating fashion, the two spelled the following words correctly: skandhas; hyblaean; feijoada; augenphilologie; sdrucciola; holluschick; thymelici; paixtle; encaenia; terreplein; stichomythia and feuilleton. After I posted the words on Facebook Thursday night, one friend asked for definitions, especially augenphilologie. I was able to find it and post it for her, which got her laughing. One of my sons wanted to know if my spell check recognized the words. Actually, three of them passed: encaenia, stichomythia and feuilleton. Every once in a while, they gave the contestants a break and did a feature. One time they went on the street and asked people how to spell misspell. None of the answers they aired were correct. From what I see, Ill bet there are a lot of words that average people cant spell. It seems to be a vanishing art. There is a list of the 100 most misspelled words in English; here are some of them: believe (dont know why, everyone knows i before e except after c, right?); but then there are ie exceptions, such as foreign, neighbor, weight, heir, weird. Here are some others commonly misspelled: cemetery, drunkenness, embarrass, inoculate, judgment (the one I see the most), memento, pastime, supersede, threshold. Actually, Id like to see some of these spelling geniuses who were on last weeks stage tested on the above words and others on the list of 100. Spelling augenphilologie is nice, but not very practical in common usage. I wonder if they could spell vacuum? But for now, knowing all those hard words resulted in a $35,000 prize. One announcer said they would each get that prize, but another said they would split it, so Im not sure how much each one received. So now its (not its) time to wrap this up and go watch a baseball game, you know, our national pastime. My judgment is that I cant let working supersede a chance to relax, even though when I watch my favorite team, I get into the game so much Im really wired or is it weird?

Do not use any other word processing programs. Every time we think this country might settle down for a little while, another incident flares up. This one is the case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Bergdahl was released by the Taliban in Afghanistan over the weekend as we exchanged five Taliban prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay for him. The release raised all sorts of complaints on how the situation was handled and, lately, whether Bergdahl is worth all the attention. Everyone should be glad that an American held prisoner for five years by terrorists is back at an American facility and should be on American soil soon. We do not want any of our citizens stuck in the primitive, cruel conditions of terrorist facilities. But the unanimous agreement stops there. Some members of Congress are upset that the president took this action unilaterally without notifying them. They say there is a law that requires President Obama to let them know what is happening before it happens. Many Americans are wondering what happened to the phrase, we dont negotiate with terrorists. Many feel that this unilateral move by President Obama may in the long run endanger many more Americans living and/or working overseas. The argument is that the Taliban now knows that it can make great gains by capturing Americans and then negotiating for their release. After all, terrorists need money to operate, and they dont have rich guy Osama bid Laden bankrolling their activities any more. And on Sunday evening, interviews with some of Bergdahls fellow officers gave the impression that they were highly critical of the sergeant, and not necessarily sympathetic to his plight. As of Sunday evening, his parents had not called him at the hospital in Germany, nor had he called them. If you were in the shoes of either party, wouldnt you want to hear your loved ones voice as soon as possible? The excuse was made that he was finding it hard to speak English, after hearing nothing but the talk of Afghans for five years. Do you think you would forget how to speak your native tongue, even if you hadnt heard it in five years? All of this stuff is immaterial to the small-town folks in Idaho who are ready to welcome him home, after five years of demonstrations and working to get his release. We can understand their cheer at the news that he is free. But we wonder what will happen down the road. We have a feeling this is something that is not going to go away. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Bergdahl case not going away But can they spell words like vacuum Airlines want ability to hide extra flying fees READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Benghazi, Benghazi, BenghaziWhen will the Republicans realize that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has already accepted responsibility for the deaths of four Americans during the terrorist uprising in Libya at the Benghazi compound? She was raked over the coals at a Congressional hearing concerning the attack on Benghazi by the Republican members of this committee. They would not accept the fact that there was little protection at this outpost because of budget cuts passed by the Republican representatives in Congress. Speaker Boehner and the rest of the Republican members of this special committee should look at what has happened during the previous administration. There were several attacks against Americans where embassies were destroyed and hundreds of foreign dignitaries and Americans were murdered. LETTER TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEELETTER, PAGE9 Photos of caves soughtThe Office of the County Engineers Stormwater Section invites residents of Marion County and its surrounding areas to participate in a Stormwater Calendar photo contest. This years theme is Exploring Marion County Caves and will feature images of cave formations, the vulnerability of our springs to pollution, and the sensitivity of karst or limerock areas in Marion County. All photos must have been taken in Marion County and depict images associated with this years theme. Photo quality and resolution must meet publishing standards; a minimum of 300 dpi (dots per pixel) is required. Submissions should include the photographers name, contact information, location of photo, and a brief description of each photo submitted, (for example spring vent at Silver Springs). Contest participants may submit up to three entries via email (stormwater@marioncountyfl.org), by mail or in person to Gail Mowry at the Office of the County Engineer (412 SE 25th Ave., Ocala, FL 34471) by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 6. On May 30, the Cherrywood Veterans Club celebrated Memorial Day on the traditional date set aside for that observance. More than 100 residents and guests watched as our honor guard presented the colors to start the program. Immediately following the National Anthem, Veterans Club President William Mahar gave a stirring speech about the meaning of Memorial Day. While our own Richard Becotte provided the music; a wreath was laid by Skip Smith at the monument in front of our clubhouse; Joe Gignac sounded taps and then our color guard saluted the various branches of the Armed Forces before passing in review. At the conclusion of the service, everyone went inside to enjoy a traditional meal of hamburgers and hot dogs. Eve Houghtaling and her crew served the guests in just over 20 minutes which was quite a feat in itself. Potato salad; beans; and a wide variety of desserts complimented the main meal that was served up hot and delicious. Following the luncheon a 50/50 drawing was held with three separate winners and a door prize was awarded. The Veterans Club would like to thank all who participated in this event. There were too many people involved to name each individually; but from the cooks to the clean up personnel; from the color guard to the planners; everyone did a stellar job. Their work was greatly appreciated by not only the veterans but also by all of those who attended. A walk in the garden On Wednesday, May 28 more than a dozen members of the Cherrywood Garden Club were treated to a very special trip to the College of Central Florida. Professor Robert Dumond gave a tour of the horticulture center at the college including the greenhouses and the garden. The college, along with teaching horticulture, also participates in experimental development for various seed companies. The companies provide experimental seeds to the college which are raised by students and volunteers. At the end of the season a report is issued to the companies on each type of plant offering a detailed analysis of both the pros and cons of each plant. Volunteers and students not only provide experimental information; they also cultivate all of the flowers to be planted around the college. As you travel down College Road check out the foliage around the Central Florida sign just as an example. LaVerne Hunt has been a volunteer for over seven years. She also accompanied the club as they toured the large garden behind the green houses. The guests were led through paths of pavers lined with an endless variety of flowers; shrubs and trees. There is even a beautiful memorial water feature in the center of the garden. Many of our members asked questions and were given tips on how to cultivate various kinds of plants to attract butterflies and just add year round beauty to their property. At the conclusion of the outing, everyone was presented with a potted flower to add to their own personal gardens. This trip was arranged by our friend Norman, who is a patron of the college and an excellent gardener in his own right. It was a great field trip filled with information and tips for those who enjoy working in the yard and with all things green and beautiful. We are deeply grateful to Professor Dumond; LaVerne Hunt and Norm for the opportunity they gave us to share their knowledge and passion for nature.

Friday, June 6, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 6, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The Democrats saw these attacks as attacks that were against our country and did not try to make political points against the Republican administration that was in charge at the time. It is obvious that any attacks against Americans during the Bush years is ancient history and should not be referred to. What really matters at this point is to attack Hillary Clinton and her admitted responsibility concerning the deaths of four Americans during this terrorist attack on Benghazi. Who says that politics isnt dirty? Jerry Segovis Ocala LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has yet to come. We have only today. Let us begin.

Located at: West Marion Moose Lodge 2356, 10411 SW 110th St., phone 352-854-2200. A 35-year-old Northwest Marion County man has been charged with 10 counts of attempted murder on law enforcement officers after he fired at a SWAT team trying to take him into custody. Dustin Heathman, 35, of 17161 NW 162nd Terrace, Williston, which is in Marion County just across the Levy County line, is being held in the Marion County jail with no bond. In addition, Jennifer Brown, 19, of the same address is accused of theft of a motor vehicle and is in the jail under a $2,000 bond. According to sheriffs officials, a family member called the Sheriffs Office and said there were warrants for Heathmans arrest, plus Heathman was violent and had numerous weapons in the home. Records show a list of previous arrests for Heathman, including for felony battery and DUI. Around noon on Sunday, June 1, Marion County deputies arrived and soon learned that a vehicle parked in the yard was stolen and Brown was most likely inside the home with Heathman. The incident took a turn when Brown came out of the home, but Heathman refused to do so. As SWAT approached the home in an armored vehicle, Heathman fired an automatic weapon, hitting the vehicle at least eight times striking both the driver and passenger sides and firing at least four times at SWAT members not in the vehicle. Law enforcement members returned gunfire. Heathman was injured by glass fragments. He was taken into custody after surrendering. Heathmans injuries are not life threatening. There were no injuries to law enforcement personnel. Additional charges are expected as detectives continue to collect evidence. Man allegedly shot at 10 SWAT members Corry Locke is the newest addition to the Ocala/Marion County Visitors and Convention Bureau team as the sports marketing specialist. Formerly with the Marion County Parks and Recreation Department, Locke is no stranger to managing large sporting events for the destination. Since 2009, Locke has successfully managed the Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth events held in Ocala/Marion County. Each of these sporting events are significant to the VCB, because they bring in more than 500 to 600 players plus their families and supporters each time they come to the county for tournaments. We could not be happier to have Corry lead this part of the VCBs business development efforts. Having a dedicated VCB staff member who is solely responsible for attracting and securing sporting events competitively positions us, said Loretta Shaffer, executive director for the VCB.

I thought it was exciting to be able to report the joy the grandparents (see article) had of seeing their granddaughter, Karen, perform in the Disney Ice Show with a busload of residents. Not having grandchildren, I enjoy hearing my friends tell of theirs. I do have grand dogs, in case you are interested. June 14 is Flag Day so be sure and get those flags out and for all of you mentioning this summer is hot please note the 21st is first day of summer. Please listen to those in authority and get in a few supplies in case of hurricanes. Okay enough of that, now on to the activities. LauraOak Run TravelAttached is a collage photo of Karen Semmelmayer, granddaughter of Oak Run residents Frank and Shirley Semmelmayer. Karen is shown performing on ice during the Disney on Ice show in Tampa as a busload of residents had a great day trip to see the show. She has two parts in the show. She is Stitch, the little blue animal at the upper right and she is also pictured skating while dressed in colorful clothes with the red hat. Congratulations Frank and Shirley! Our cruise coordinators, Bob Kocher and John Casabianca, are having a sale date for cruises in 2015 in order to take advantage of the best prices and to be sure we can get cabins on high demand cruises we think you will enjoy.

Local couples granddaughter performs in Disney on Ice Oak Run Laura Smith PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE11 Marion County detectives, working with other counties, have identified a retail theft ring that is responsible for large scale thefts of household products, personal hygiene products and underwear/t-shirts, according to the Marion County Sheriffs Office. According to the report, Charlie Pitts, 65, and Willie Lewis, 60, were arrested in the southeast area after reports of thefts at CVS and Dollar General. MCSO said that this is a well-organized operation with low-level pros with lookouts going into the retail store and snatching enough merchandise to fill a car truck and back seat. That merchandise is then sold to a mule who may pay with pills or cash. The mule takes it to a booster who in turn takes it toa fence, who might sell it on Ebay or something similar. The two were apprehended by a deputy who approached them after seeing them kick bottles under a car to hide them. Pitts has a record of three convictions for theft, while Lewis has 11 convictions for theft. The Sheriffs Office recovered this carload of stolen goods.

Agroup of Marion Landing residents paid tribute to the men and women who died while serving in our countrys armed forces by forming an impromptu march to the Lifestyle Center where they then gathered to say a prayer at the Veterans Memorial Plaque. The march was organized by Sheldon Blumenthal, who couldnt let the day go by without a remembrance, with the help of Pat Mershimer. The group sang our National Anthem and Neil Williams played Taps, the words of which are also inscribed on the memorial plaque which sits beneath the flag pole in the Veterans Memorial Garden outside of the Lifestyle Center.July 4 PartyCelebrate Independence Day at a potluck picnic with food, music, games, raffles and prizes.

Caregiver Stress Syndrome exhibits actual physiological, psychological and emotional symptoms that can result from the ongoing emotional strain of caregiving for a loved one, or attending to the all of the needs of a child or dependent adult. Caregivers may also experience fatigue, anxiety, and depression, and many caregivers also feel guilty if they spend time on themselves rather than on their ill or elderly loved ones. If you are the caregiver of a parent, spouse, relative or friend, or know of someone who is, please plan to stay after the Social on Tuesday, June 17, and learn about the causes and symptoms of caregiver stress, the steps you can take to help prevent it, and the assistance that is available should you need it.Water exercise beginsA few brave souls came out for the first water exercise class of the season despite chilly temperatures. The Aquasize group, which meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10 a.m., and lovingly known as Dottys water exercise, is now led by Lina Vallejo since Dotty Bouchet has recently retired from the group. Lina is keeping up the same format for the class that everyone has always enjoyed. Although the first class had only six participants, there are usually upward of 20 folks who come down to start their day with some gentle but effective water exercise. And theres room for more! If youre an early bird, theres Pats Water Aerobics class which meets every morning at 8:45 a.m., 9:30 a.m. after the Tuesday morning Social. Both classes are excellent for low impact movement, and a splash in the pool may help you achieve your fitness goals while easing joint and muscle pain. According to the Aquatic Exercise Association, waters natural buoyancy, resistance, cooling effect and decreased joint impact make it an ideal exercise medium for seniors. Health ailments such as diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular problems, back problems and osteoporosis can benefit from water aerobics, and its a great way to get moving while socializing with others.

LANDINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 PLEASESEELANDING, PAGE13 PHOTO BY DIANE BRESSThe first Marion Landing water exercise class of the season. Plan now for early Fourth of July deadlines STILL LIFE WITH BREAD CRUMBS By Anna QuindlenAt age 60, Rebecca Winter, a once famous photographer, is caught between the financial needs of aging parents and a film-making son just when her expenses are skyrocketing and the big bucks are no longer coming in. Her solution to the growing problem is to sublet her pricey New York City apartment and move to a rustic cottage in the country. Rustic doesnt adequately describe the ramshackle mess she discovers complete with a noisy raccoon in the attic. The cottage was the real estate version of on-line dating, built atop lies, leading down to disenchantment. The towns go-to man in emergencies was Jim Bates, a roofer and general handyman who was divorced and saddled with onerous family problems of his own. He was also something of a local hero. An unlikely friendship develops between the two, surprising both Rebecca and Jim. Even in a small town there are people who recognize Rebecca as a former celebritylike Sarah the caf owner. Often asked how she discovered her talent, Rebecca knows people expect something more exciting than the truth. It had been after a dinner party that had run late. Her ex-husband and son went to bed leaving her with the mess. On a whim she grabbed her camera and started photographing the remains of the evenings festivities a bottle lying on its side with a puddle of olive oil shimmering along its curved lip, a handful of greasy forks glistening in the overhead lights, and, of course, what was later called Still Life with Bread Crumbs, a vaguely Flemish composition of dirty wineglasses, stacked plates, the torn ends of two baguettes, and a dish towel singed on the corner by the gas stove. And thats how the Kitchen Counters series was born and how reproductions of it sold and sold and sold. Please leave the dishes, her husband would laugh to dinner guests, My wife will be immortalizing them after youve left. That was then, however. Now speaking engagements and exhibits having dried up, Rebecca accepts her current status as a has-been. But shes wrong. In this feel-good novel, life is preparing a dazzling second act for her.

Friday, June 6, 2014 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, June 6, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Dear Readers, I cant believe it is June. Where has the time gone? I thought it was exciting to be able to report the joy the grandparents (see article) had of seeing their granddaughter, Karen, perform in the Disney Ice Show with a busload of residents. Not having grandchildren, I enjoy hearing my friends tell of theirs. I do have grand dogs, in case you are interested. June 14 is Flag Day so be sure and get those flags out and for all of you mentioning this summer is hot please note the 21st is first day of summer. Please listen to those in authority and get in a few supplies in case of hurricanes. Okay enough of that, now on to the activities. LauraOak Run TravelAttached is a collage photo of Karen Semmelmayer, granddaughter of Oak Run residents Frank and Shirley Semmelmayer. Karen is shown performing on ice during the Disney on Ice show in Tampa as a busload of residents had a great day trip to see the show. She has two parts in the show. She is Stitch, the little blue animal at the upper right and she is also pictured skating while dressed in colorful clothes with the red hat. Congratulations Frank and Shirley! Our cruise coordinators, Bob Kocher and John Casabianca, are having a sale date for cruises in 2015 in order to take advantage of the best prices and to be sure we can get cabins on high demand cruises we think you will enjoy. On Monday, July 14 in the Orchid Club, from noon to 1:30 p.m., they will be selling the following three cruises for 2015: March 20, 2015 10 night Southern Caribbean RCLs Legend of the Seas. Oct. 18, 2015 15 night repositioning cruise from Quebec City (via Montreal) to Fort Lauderdale RCLs Serenade of the Seas. Nov. 22, 2015 7 night Thanksgiving Caribbean cruise from Port Canaveral RCLs Freedom of the Seas. Great news! We have had requests for a land tour of Spain/Portugal and now we are planning it for March 30, 2015. This will be a 14-day trip including airfare, hotels, deluxe motor coach, lots of meals and tips. It flies out of Tampa and is being handled for us by Grand Circle Tours. Flyers will be placed in the Orchid Club soon but in the meanwhile call Dick and Elsa Berbig for details. Local couples granddaughter performs in Disney on Ice Oak Run Laura Smith PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE11 Marion County detectives, working with other counties, have identified a retail theft ring that is responsible for large scale thefts of household products, personal hygiene products and underwear/t-shirts, according to the Marion County Sheriffs Office. According to the report, Charlie Pitts, 65, and Willie Lewis, 60, were arrested in the southeast area after reports of thefts at CVS and Dollar General. MCSO said that this is a well-organized operation with low-level pros with lookouts going into the retail store and snatching enough merchandise to fill a car truck and back seat. That merchandise is then sold to a mule who may pay with pills or cash. The mule takes it to a booster who in turn takes it toa fence, who might sell it on Ebay or something similar. The two were apprehended by a deputy who approached them after seeing them kick bottles under a car to hide them. Pitts has a record of three convictions for theft, while Lewis has 11 convictions for theft. The Sheriffs Office recovered this carload of stolen goods.

Friday, June 6, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 6, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The Democrats saw these attacks as attacks that were against our country and did not try to make political points against the Republican administration that was in charge at the time. It is obvious that any attacks against Americans during the Bush years is ancient history and should not be referred to. What really matters at this point is to attack Hillary Clinton and her admitted responsibility concerning the deaths of four Americans during this terrorist attack on Benghazi. Who says that politics isnt dirty? Jerry Segovis Ocala LETTERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has yet to come. We have only today. Let us begin. Mother Teresa We have more free time than ever before. Unfortunately, some of us are using that time to dwell on the past. Its good to remember the past, especially the good times. Also, wed like to change some of them but that is never possible. Instead, we should be taking advantage of all the interesting things happening in OTOW. Each day spend time making new memories. This will only happen if we stop dwelling on a past that no longer exists. We can wait patiently for the future to unfold as it always does while living today.Concert ChorusThe members of the On Top of the World Concert Chorus will have to get started sooner than expected. Our task before September is to find a new chorus director.

We hope to find someone who loves to sing, as much as this group does, and is enthusiastic about planning for the concert and meeting each Tuesday morning with them, beginning in September. Interested persons should contact Joan Stenson, President of the Chorus, at 352-873-0340.Master the PossibilitiesThere are 18 classes and presentations set to start next week at the Master the Possibilities Education Center.

Located at: West Marion Moose Lodge 2356, 10411 SW 110th St., phone 352-854-2200. A 35-year-old Northwest Marion County man has been charged with 10 counts of attempted murder on law enforcement officers after he fired at a SWAT team trying to take him into custody. Dustin Heathman, 35, of 17161 NW 162nd Terrace, Williston, which is in Marion County just across the Levy County line, is being held in the Marion County jail with no bond. In addition, Jennifer Brown, 19, of the same address is accused of theft of a motor vehicle and is in the jail under a $2,000 bond. According to sheriffs officials, a family member called the Sheriffs Office and said there were warrants for Heathmans arrest, plus Heathman was violent and had numerous weapons in the home. Records show a list of previous arrests for Heathman, including for felony battery and DUI. Around noon on Sunday, June 1, Marion County deputies arrived and soon learned that a vehicle parked in the yard was stolen and Brown was most likely inside the home with Heathman. The incident took a turn when Brown came out of the home, but Heathman refused to do so. As SWAT approached the home in an armored vehicle, Heathman fired an automatic weapon, hitting the vehicle at least eight times striking both the driver and passenger sides and firing at least four times at SWAT members not in the vehicle. Law enforcement members returned gunfire. Heathman was injured by glass fragments. He was taken into custody after surrendering. Heathmans injuries are not life threatening. There were no injuries to law enforcement personnel. Additional charges are expected as detectives continue to collect evidence. Man allegedly shot at 10 SWAT members Corry Locke is the newest addition to the Ocala/Marion County Visitors and Convention Bureau team as the sports marketing specialist. Formerly with the Marion County Parks and Recreation Department, Locke is no stranger to managing large sporting events for the destination. Since 2009, Locke has successfully managed the Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth events held in Ocala/Marion County. Each of these sporting events are significant to the VCB, because they bring in more than 500 to 600 players plus their families and supporters each time they come to the county for tournaments. We could not be happier to have Corry lead this part of the VCBs business development efforts.

Friday, June 6, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 6, 2014 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenWeve all seen the pharmaceutical ads on TV you know, the ones that typically offer relief from something like, say, itchy elbows. Once you get past the narrative and the video, which shows the deep shame that anyone feels when scratching his elbow and introduces the blessed relief of some medication named ArmBend-numb or whatever, we get the long disclaimer: Do not use Arm-bend-numb within 16 hours of eating. Arm-bend-numb can cause feeling of deep depression, a variety of cancers and problems with your immune system that can result in death. I dont know about you, but by the time thats through, Ive decided to take my chances with the itchy elbow. The drug companies probably hate the disclosures that cut into their profits, but we get to decide whether relief is worth it. Right now, we get some sort of disclosure from the airlines, which are required to tell us the full cost of flying from here to there, listing their base price, along with the mandatory taxes and fees. Luggage and just about everything else are extra. Currently, the airlines need to inform us about all that when we are looking for the best fares. Theyre not happy about it, so in true American corporate fashion theyve influence-peddled members of Congress to try to introduce legislation allowing airlines to advertise only the base price, and add the other charges once youve gone several steps into the booking process. The deceit even extends to the title of the bill. Its the Transparent Airlines Act of 2014. Notwithstanding the shameless dishonesty, the airlines do make one semi-valid point, and that is that other biggies in the travel industry, such as hotels and carrental companies, are allowed to get away with the same subterfuge. Weve all bristled at the carrental counter when were informed that the rate weve been quoted excludes a long list of fees that often exceed the advertised rental rate. And how many of us have been outraged when our hotel adds on all the taxes, fees and, my personal favorite, the facility charge for just being in the building. Our stay ends up costing not just an arm and a leg, but another limb as well ... probably the one with the itchy elbow. Yes, the airlines have a right to be treated equally. But the answer is not to allow their flimflam, but to require hotels and car rental companies to end theirs and make clear what were really going to pay when we select one. After a while, it gets truly wearisome that we live in such a caveat emptor society, where we have to expend so much energy trying to avoid the legalized swindle. The reason its not a crime is because usually our lawmakers are receiving financial incentives from those who want to get away with their chicanery. Maybe our campaign ads should come with a disclaimer like the drug commercials. Something like, Electing this candidate may do serious harm to this country and have a negative effect on your own life. Because these days, when it comes to all the rhetoric, more and more people just arent buying it. When I was in elementary school (as my children say, back in the dark ages when dinosaurs roamed the Earth), I was pretty good at spelling. When teams were chosen for athletic events, I was one of the last ones taken. But when it came to picking sides for a spelling bee, I was usually the first boy chosen, if I wasnt the captain doing the choosing. Yes, I was good at it. Spelling words at or slightly above my grade level (as they measure it now, they didnt then) was easy for me. I cant tell you how many times I led the boys to victory (maybe thats why the girls didnt like me). I thought of all this last Thursday night as I watched two boys tie for the championship in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. I never heard of any of the words that the pair of finalists battled over. Each had a chance to win. First one misspelled antigropelos, and all the other one had to do was spell his word right and he would have won. But he fouled up corpsbruder, so the competition continued. In alternating fashion, the two spelled the following words correctly: skandhas; hyblaean; feijoada; augenphilologie; sdrucciola; holluschick; thymelici; paixtle; encaenia; terreplein; stichomythia and feuilleton. After I posted the words on Facebook Thursday night, one friend asked for definitions, especially augenphilologie. I was able to find it and post it for her, which got her laughing. One of my sons wanted to know if my spell check recognized the words. Actually, three of them passed: encaenia, stichomythia and feuilleton. Every once in a while, they gave the contestants a break and did a feature. One time they went on the street and asked people how to spell misspell. None of the answers they aired were correct. From what I see, Ill bet there are a lot of words that average people cant spell. It seems to be a vanishing art. There is a list of the 100 most misspelled words in English; here are some of them: believe (dont know why, everyone knows i before e except after c, right?); but then there are ie exceptions, such as foreign, neighbor, weight, heir, weird. Here are some others commonly misspelled: cemetery, drunkenness, embarrass, inoculate, judgment (the one I see the most), memento, pastime, supersede, threshold. Actually, Id like to see some of these spelling geniuses who were on last weeks stage tested on the above words and others on the list of 100. Spelling augenphilologie is nice, but not very practical in common usage. I wonder if they could spell vacuum? But for now, knowing all those hard words resulted in a $35,000 prize. One announcer said they would each get that prize, but another said they would split it, so Im not sure how much each one received. So now its (not its) time to wrap this up and go watch a baseball game, you know, our national pastime. My judgment is that I cant let working supersede a chance to relax, even though when I watch my favorite team, I get into the game so much Im really wired or is it weird?

Do not use any other word processing programs. Every time we think this country might settle down for a little while, another incident flares up. This one is the case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Bergdahl was released by the Taliban in Afghanistan over the weekend as we exchanged five Taliban prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay for him. The release raised all sorts of complaints on how the situation was handled and, lately, whether Bergdahl is worth all the attention. Everyone should be glad that an American held prisoner for five years by terrorists is back at an American facility and should be on American soil soon. We do not want any of our citizens stuck in the primitive, cruel conditions of terrorist facilities. But the unanimous agreement stops there. Some members of Congress are upset that the president took this action unilaterally without notifying them. They say there is a law that requires President Obama to let them know what is happening before it happens. Many Americans are wondering what happened to the phrase, we dont negotiate with terrorists. Many feel that this unilateral move by President Obama may in the long run endanger many more Americans living and/or working overseas. The argument is that the Taliban now knows that it can make great gains by capturing Americans and then negotiating for their release. After all, terrorists need money to operate, and they dont have rich guy Osama bid Laden bankrolling their activities any more. And on Sunday evening, interviews with some of Bergdahls fellow officers gave the impression that they were highly critical of the sergeant, and not necessarily sympathetic to his plight. As of Sunday evening, his parents had not called him at the hospital in Germany, nor had he called them. If you were in the shoes of either party, wouldnt you want to hear your loved ones voice as soon as possible? The excuse was made that he was finding it hard to speak English, after hearing nothing but the talk of Afghans for five years. Do you think you would forget how to speak your native tongue, even if you hadnt heard it in five years? All of this stuff is immaterial to the small-town folks in Idaho who are ready to welcome him home, after five years of demonstrations and working to get his release. We can understand their cheer at the news that he is free. But we wonder what will happen down the road. We have a feeling this is something that is not going to go away. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Bergdahl case not going away But can they spell words like vacuum Airlines want ability to hide extra flying fees READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Benghazi, Benghazi, BenghaziWhen will the Republicans realize that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has already accepted responsibility for the deaths of four Americans during the terrorist uprising in Libya at the Benghazi compound? She was raked over the coals at a Congressional hearing concerning the attack on Benghazi by the Republican members of this committee. They would not accept the fact that there was little protection at this outpost because of budget cuts passed by the Republican representatives in Congress. Speaker Boehner and the rest of the Republican members of this special committee should look at what has happened during the previous administration. There were several attacks against Americans where embassies were destroyed and hundreds of foreign dignitaries and Americans were murdered. LETTER TO THE EDITOR PLEASESEELETTER, PAGE9 Photos of caves soughtThe Office of the County Engineers Stormwater Section invites residents of Marion County and its surrounding areas to participate in a Stormwater Calendar photo contest. This years theme is Exploring Marion County Caves and will feature images of cave formations, the vulnerability of our springs to pollution, and the sensitivity of karst or limerock areas in Marion County. All photos must have been taken in Marion County and depict images associated with this years theme. Photo quality and resolution must meet publishing standards; a minimum of 300 dpi (dots per pixel) is required. Submissions should include the photographers name, contact information, location of photo, and a brief description of each photo submitted, (for example spring vent at Silver Springs). Contest participants may submit up to three entries via email (stormwater@marioncountyfl.org), by mail or in person to Gail Mowry at the Office of the County Engineer (412 SE 25th Ave., Ocala, FL 34471) by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 6. On May 30, the Cherrywood Veterans Club celebrated Memorial Day on the traditional date set aside for that observance. More than 100 residents and guests watched as our honor guard presented the colors to start the program. Immediately following the National Anthem, Veterans Club President William Mahar gave a stirring speech about the meaning of Memorial Day. While our own Richard Becotte provided the music; a wreath was laid by Skip Smith at the monument in front of our clubhouse; Joe Gignac sounded taps and then our color guard saluted the various branches of the Armed Forces before passing in review. At the conclusion of the service, everyone went inside to enjoy a traditional meal of hamburgers and hot dogs. Eve Houghtaling and her crew served the guests in just over 20 minutes which was quite a feat in itself. Potato salad; beans; and a wide variety of desserts complimented the main meal that was served up hot and delicious. Following the luncheon a 50/50 drawing was held with three separate winners and a door prize was awarded. The Veterans Club would like to thank all who participated in this event. There were too many people involved to name each individually; but from the cooks to the clean up personnel; from the color guard to the planners; everyone did a stellar job. Their work was greatly appreciated by not only the veterans but also by all of those who attended. A walk in the garden On Wednesday, May 28 more than a dozen members of the Cherrywood Garden Club were treated to a very special trip to the College of Central Florida. Professor Robert Dumond gave a tour of the horticulture center at the college including the greenhouses and the garden. The college, along with teaching horticulture, also participates in experimental development for various seed companies. The companies provide experimental seeds to the college which are raised by students and volunteers. At the end of the season a report is issued to the companies on each type of plant offering a detailed analysis of both the pros and cons of each plant. Volunteers and students not only provide experimental information; they also cultivate all of the flowers to be planted around the college. As you travel down College Road check out the foliage around the Central Florida sign just as an example. LaVerne Hunt has been a volunteer for over seven years. She also accompanied the club as they toured the large garden behind the green houses. The guests were led through paths of pavers lined with an endless variety of flowers; shrubs and trees. There is even a beautiful memorial water feature in the center of the garden. Many of our members asked questions and were given tips on how to cultivate various kinds of plants to attract butterflies and just add year round beauty to their property. At the conclusion of the outing, everyone was presented with a potted flower to add to their own personal gardens. This trip was arranged by our friend Norman, who is a patron of the college and an excellent gardener in his own right. It was a great field trip filled with information and tips for those who enjoy working in the yard and with all things green and beautiful. We are deeply grateful to Professor Dumond; LaVerne Hunt and Norm for the opportunity they gave us to share their knowledge and passion for nature.

Blair; the Friday Night Guys in memory of Al Buechter and a donation from Bill Anderson. Our Social Committee also made a donation of $100.

Between the hours of 9 and 11:30 come to the clubhouse and let these professionals show you how quick and easy it is to save a life. All types of blood are needed but especially type O. There is no danger and very little if any discomfort donating blood. In addition, you will be screened by these experts so you will get to know a little about yourself in the process. Summer time is a critical time of year for our blood banks. There are fewer donors due to the snow birds going back north and an ever present need due to accidents and other emergencies. Take a few minutes out of your day and stop by to make a huge difference in the life of some one. Appointments can be made or just stop in.

On this date in 1824, Noah Cushing patented the washing machine and in 1869, Ives W McGaffey patented the vacuum cleaner. Obviously, there will be no dirty jokes in this column.Its not the detergentA boy, about 8 years old, selected a box of laundry detergent at the corner Mom & Pop grocery picking. The grocer asked the boy if he had a lot of laundry to do. No, the boy said, Im going to wash my frog. But if you wash your frog in this, hell get sick. In fact, it might even kill him. But the boy was not to be stopped and purchased the detergent. About a week later the boy was back in the store to buy some candy. The grocer asked how his frog was doing. Oh, he died, the boy said. The grocer said, I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on your frog. The boy replied, I dont think it was the detergent that killed him. Oh? What was it then? I think it was the spin cycle!A sound storyA high school science class was learning about how sound travels. If youre in a vacuum, and someone calls your name, can you hear it? the teacher inquired. One eager boy raised his hand. That depends, he answered. Is it on or off?Power lunchA salesman knocked on the door of a house and an old lady answered. He began, Maam, Im selling the newest innovation in vacuums, this is the greatest little machine I have seen in a long time. Go away! said the lady. I havent got any money! and she proceeded to close the door. Quick as a flash, he pushed the door wide open. Dont be too hasty! he said. Then he dumped a mixture of ketchup, salsa, and mud on her carpet. He said, If this vacuum doesnt clean up that mess, I will eat it! The lady stepped back and said, Well I hope youve got a good appetite, because they cut off my electricity this morning.Dry cleaningIn the window of an appliance store: Dont kill your wife. Let our washing machine do the dirty work. Support bacteria. Theyre the only culture some people have. If space is a vacuum, who changes the bag? One person can keep a fishing line clear, but it takes two to tangle. I may not be a great artist, but I am really good at drawing a blank.Dirty laundry?A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbor hanging her laundry outside. That laundry is not very clean, she said. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap. Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang her laundry to dry, the young woman would make the same comments. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder how that happened? The husband said, I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.Clean sweepJim asked his friend, Tony, whether he had bought his wife anything for her birthday. Yes, came the answer from Tony, Ive bought her a belt and a bag. That was very nice, Jim added, I hope she appreciated the thought. Tony smiled as he replied, So do I, and hopefully the vacuum cleaner will work better now.Ironclad contractA clown moved into an apartment block reserved solely for circus performers. He liked everything about the apartment. It was well equipped with fancy stove, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, washer and dryer. The only thing missing was an ironing board, something on which he could press his circus uniform after washing it. Why is there no ironing board? he asked the agent. Both the lion tamer and the juggler have one. You use the window ledge, like the other clowns, explained the agent. Its in your contract. Every clown has a sill for ironing.

Friday, June 6, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, June 6, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Try using that Aries charm to warm up the usual set of workplace naysayers, and then back it up with a solid block of facts and figures to sell your idea to your colleagues. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) While nothing can deter a determined Bovine from following a course you believe in, it helps to have some supporting data and statements by trusted colleagues to make your case. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Take advantage of new information that could help make your career transition easier. The weekend is a good time to re-establish relationships with people you havent seen in a while.

Quick action to shore things up is called for in order to avoid more problems down the line.

Expect news about a family matter. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Before you try to blame a colleague for a workplace problem, make sure you have the proof to back you up. Make some quiet inquiries on your own to try to solicit more information. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Trying to cheer up a depressed friend or downcast family member can be difficult. But keep at it, and your efforts should soon pay off in ways you might have never expected.

Just remember to keep the lines of communication open between the two of you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new friendship could develop into a close relationship. Meanwhile, reassure an old friend who might be feeling neglected that he or she is still an important part of your life.

Ihave a photograph. Its an old black and white taken by a Kodak instamatic camera. I remember the outfit I was wearing. It was a madras plaid blouse woven in burgundy and navy hues and I have on a pair of navy Bermuda shorts. (My mother had a blouse just like it; it was cool to dress alike back then) I am standing in front of some whimsical animals made out of car parts. I was 17 years old and it was my idea to come to this place. It was 50 years ago and I was at the New York Worlds Fair at the General Motors Pavilion. There were so many wonderful things to see in those days! The future was in our hands. We saw the beginnings of the computer age and the picture phone (think video conferencing) super cars, new transportation systems of the future. We loved the auto animatronic dolls in the Pepsi Exhibit now at The Magic Kingdom in the Small, Small World Attraction. And there was the G.E. Carousel of Progress, now at Epcot, with its advances in making life easier for us all. And wonder of wonders, National Cash register had invented something called NCR paper, carbonless carbon paper that I thought was just amazing! Looking back at the 50 years since the Fair erected its iconic symbol of the Unisphere, a metal sculpture of a globe symbolizing a united world, so much history has passed that continues to influence us today. Many areas moved ahead quickly with advances in medicine, education, industry, science and yes, even in religion. In the 50 years since the Unisphere, Judaism, always evolving, made some major changes and advances. What seems to stand out prominently are the roles and recognition given to women especially in the more liberal branches of the faith. By the early s the Reform and Reconstructionist movements were ordaining rabbis. The Conservative Movement followed in the mid 1980s although women had been counted as part of the minyon (religious quorum) by the Conservative movement early in the 1970s. The Reform and Reconstructionist branches allowed this in the 70s as well. In 1968, the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College was founded and Reconstructionism, a fourth movement in Judaism had a theological base in which to train rabbis and cantors. Always equalitarian from inception it would go on to ordain gay and lesbian rabbis as well. The movement introduced the concept of the bat mitzvah, the female equivalent to the bar mitzvah, when a young 13 year old is called to the Torah and becomes an adult member of the Jewish community. While the concept has been around since the 1920s, its popularity took off in the late 1960s and continues unto this day. In the years since Unisphere, there have been new interpretations of the Torah in view of modern living. New discoveries in Biblical archeology have shed new light on the ancient Biblical narratives giving us more insight into what the Bible is trying to impart to us. The excavation of places like Masada where Jewish zealots in 70 C.E. gave up their lives rather than live under Roman oppression, brought Jewish history to the forefront and connected those of the Jewish faith to history and survival. While the more liberal branches of Judaism have gained momentum these past 50 years, traditional Judaism has also seen changes. Women are gaining more rights among certain traditional groups and they are taking on more roles as leaders within a traditional framework. A movement/trend towards returning to Jewish roots also became popular in the mid s. A person returning to Judaism from another faith or from lack of observance was called a baal teshuvah, one who returns. Many of these returnees to Judaism were products of mixed marriages and those with little Jewish education who wished to delve more into their faith. Many traveled to Israel to study in yeshivahs, religious academies, and many became followers of charismatic rabbis. Zionism too has blossomed. With the victory of the 1967 War, Jewish pride swelled to new heights and support of the Jewish State took on new precedence. Tourism to Israel also became popular and just about every Jewish group had pilgrimages to Israel. I have a photograph. It is in black and white taken by a Kodak Instamatic camera. I am standing in front of the Unisphere, a stolen moment captured from the millions who also wanted a shot in front of the iconic metal sculpture.

More photos from the new Torah at OTOW PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPEL Once the teams have been selected, questions are flashed on the big screen and each group tries to figure out the best answer to each question. A 3 or 4 person team is great because if you dont know one subject; chances are another person on your team does. At the end of the evening answer sheets are exchanged and graded. The winners get a small cash prize and priceless bragging rights for a whole month. Trivia begins promptly at 7 p.m. so get there a few minutes early to sign up. Bring along a drink; snack or both and enjoy a fun evening with friends and neighbors. All proceeds from Trivia are donated to the Patriot Dog Project so youll not only have a good time; youll help out a worthy cause. By the way, if you read that last sentence, you already have the answer to one of the questions. See you at Trivia.Back to School BashYouve probably noticed the large container box in the lobby of the clubhouse. This is a donation station for school supplies to help out children in need for the coming school year. Last year we were able to help out the Marion Oaks Back to School Bash with three boxes full of supplies. We are hoping to do even better this year. Needed items include back packs; note books; essay books; paper; pencils and pens; glue sticks; magic markers; scissors (dont run with them); crayons and just about everything school related.

All contributions are subject to editing for clarity, taste, and style.Member of the Community Papers of Florida Listening to news programs, particularly the yakity-yak-my-viewis-the-only-right-view programs you might come away with the idea that there is a war on everything. Most of the time, someone is for a certain war because of some political advantage it will give them in the publics eye. Is it just me or have you noticed people will create a war on something just to get in the limelight? They are not against something they just know someone is; that someone is someone that goes to the polls and votes, and they want their vote. The greatest war going on in our society today is the war on common sense. There, I said it. And I stand by what I said. There is a tremendous attack on common sense in our society today. I must confess that common sense is not as common as it once was and perhaps never was. I like to think that somewhere along the line a few good people have entertained common sense. It would be nice if just some time these politicians would simply come together and establish a law, merely one law that makes sense. In order to make one law that makes sense they have to have 999 other laws that confuse it to such a degree that it no longer makes sense. Common sense would tell me if I do not have enough money I cannot purchase a certain thing. That does not work in Washington. Oh no. In Washington, affording something financially is never part of the equation. The only thing important in that equation is, does this make somebody who voted for me happy enough to vote for me again? It takes a lot of good old-fashioned common sense to take care of money and run my household budget in such a way that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage is happy. Taking care of money and making sure that we do not spend money on things we do not need is part of the common sense that helps me balance my checkbook month after month. Common sense says I need to balance my checkbook. Washington sense says, write checks until you have no more checks to write then order more checks. Forget all that stuff about balance. If we run out of money, we just print more money. Does that really make sense? Not only is common sense eliminated from the financial aspects of our country, but health issues are also thrown to the curb. Common sense would tell me I need to eat properly. Washington sense says, eat what I tell you to eat. I have seen some of the stuff that they, the government, want us to eat. The government wants to come into our school cafeterias and force-feed our children a proper diet. In most of these schools, I cannot speak for all of them, the children have the common sense to throw it away. Common sense says if it does not look good or taste good it probably aint good for you. The Bible has a lot to say about this. My favorite verse of Scripture is, Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (James 4:17). I need to make common sense the standard of my day-to-day living based upon the common teaching of the Word of God.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores. Call him at 1-866-552-2543 or email jamessnyder2@att.net or website www.jamessnyderministries.com. Common sense not as common as it used to be Out to Pastor Rev.

Every human being in the world experiences fear of some kind and that fact alone teaches us that we are all brothers and sisters in our commonality. Overcoming fear is what we call courage. Doing heroic acts in the face of danger; proving that we are up to any challenge; a willingness to give up our cherished lives for an ideal; that is the inner strength that we call courage. This week we mark the 70-year anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944. For most of us that date has little significance but in the history of the World; that date is huge. If I may, let me share a few observations about the day; about the sacrifice and about the courage of those who fought. First, there were many D-Days during the Second World War. Simply put, it marked the day of the invasion. There were D-Days at Iwo Jima; Anzio; the Philippines; etc. and the second day after the invasion was marked by D plus 1 or D plus 2; and so on. For modern history the biggest D-Day was the invasion of Fortress Europe at Normandy, France. 5,000 ships; 30,000 vehicles; 160,000 men and women and an additional 12,500 paratroopers would take part in the initial assault. If you can picture feeding; housing; clothing; arming; fueling; and providing sanitary conditions for a force that size it will give you a slight sense of the magnitude of the operation. Drawing down from the big picture, let us consider the individual soldier riding in a flimsy landing craft on rough seas toward a beach littered with booby traps and protected by a determined enemy armed with machine guns and artillery. In spite of those overwhelming odds our young men came ashore and continued across several hundred yards of open sand facing heavy fire from the German positions. Their buddies were dropping all around them and the noise of exploding artillery added to the chaos and terror. On that one day, June 6, over 6,600 Americans gave up all of their tomorrows so that we could have today. Thousands more would die in the months that followed until the final victory over Nazi Germany was achieved. Most of those who fought in this battle are now gone and few of us will take time to note the significance of that day so long ago. That is too bad because June 6 should be an example of what courage can do. While overcoming their own personal fears, collectively these young Americans freed a continent from horrendous evil. An entire generation steeled itself with raw courage and determination. They were willing to give their all to make the world a better and safer place. That should give us all pause to reconsider our situations. What fears do we face in our lives? Perhaps its dealing with health issues; death; lack of mobility; a loss of friends and neighbors or poverty. We need to look back on episodes in our history when people met the challenges of life not without fear but with courage and determination that conquered that fear. Are our situations worse than crossing a wind tossed English Channel under enemy fire at the young age of 18 or 19? We Americans are a courageous people; our history has proven that. We take pride not in being taken care of; but in taking care of others. Traditionally we dont need to be told to do the right thing; thats in our nature. On this June 6, let us all remember the lessons learned on this day. With a note of gratitude to those who liberated Europe; let us be inspired to face the challenges of our lives with courage. To those of the Greatest Generation who are still with us; we thank you for all your accomplishments and for your legacy of courage.If you have suggestions or comments regarding the Cherrywood Section of your Citizen Newspaper, please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com.

MARION COUNTY FIRE RESCUE PHOTOKingsland Country Estates fireMarion County Fire Rescue put down a fire early in the afternoon in Kingsland Country Estates on Southwest 101st Place Road. Twelve units responded and the first firefighters on the scene found the resident outside but her cat was still inside. The cat was located and pulled out but, despite CPR efforts, did not survive. While searching for the cat, Sylvester, firefighters located some family photos on the wall and were able to save them. A new but not quite finished Torah was brought to On Top of the World on Sunday to have the remaining letters placed by the scribe. Volunteers took turns touching him or the quill. The quill had to be put in the ink well often to be able to continue placing the letters. In addition to a different alphabet that we use, the Hebrew language is read and written right to left. Each character in the Torah must be formed perfectly. After all the letters had been placed it was rolled up and placed in its cover but not before Ken Colen, the son of Sidney and Ina Colen, held it up and turned around while holding the Torah partially unrolled so the audience could see it before it was covered. After the Torah was covered, Ken carried it outside in the rain but the chuppa kept it dry as the people paraded to the Circle Square Commons and back. Everyone was invited to the feast and dancing to a two-man band after the parade. Some danced with the Torah while others had children on their shoulders. Torah at OTOW PHOTOS BY MIKE ROPPELIn the left photo, before the Torah is rolled up, Ken Colen is showing the finished Torah to the viewers. In the right photo, The scribes father-in-law has the privilege of helping the scribe place the last letter. More photos on Page 5.
