BRIEFS Volunteer readers soughtDo you like to read aloud to children? Marion County Public Library System invites you to share the joy of books and reading by becoming a volunteer reader for the Library Express childrens program. Through July 14, interested adults are encouraged to submit a volunteer application to the public library for the Library Express program. Volunteer applications may be obtained online by visiting the librarys website at http://library.marioncountyfl.org or any of the eight public library locations in Marion County. All prospective volunteers must attend training and orientation, be able to commit to the program schedule and pass a background check prior to volunteering. Reading to children helps them develop a love of books and learning, as well as sparks their creativity and imagination. Library Express volunteers provide story time sessions once per month from September-May at various Head Start classroom locations throughout the county. Volunteers will receive a thorough training and orientation on how to provide story time sessions to children, as well as receive all reading materials required for the volunteer assignment. For more information about the Library Express program, contact Kelly Friesen at 352671-8551.

The county is being considered as an ideal location to site a 120bed nursing home funded through the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs (FDVA) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Five other Florida counties are also in the running. The June 20 event will offer county residents an opportunity to meet state selection committee representatives and provide public comment in support of the new facility being sited in Marion. Event attendees will be able to enjoy live music and light refreshments, and show their patriotic spirit. The event will take place on the proposed site in the northeast corner of Southwest 80th Street and Southwest 80th Avenue, Ocala (On Top of the World). Our veterans have made the greatest sacrifices to guarantee our freedoms today, said Marion County Commission Chairman Carl Zalak. Marion County wishes to continue being a part of their hope for a better tomorrow by becoming the home of the new state veterans nursing home. Those wishing to learn more about the event and why Marion County is the ideal location for the state veterans nursing home may visit www.marioncountyfl.org/VAhome or call 352-438-2300. 28~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Rally planned to support vets nursing home These Marion County Fire Rescue photos show hazmat personnel working at the County Judicial Center downtown as they determine whether there is a threat from white powder received there.

Marion County Fire Rescue worked with Ocala Fire Rescue and cooperated with the Ocala Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office regarding suspicious envelopes received at Lake Weir High School, the Marion County Judicial Center, Forest High School, West Port High School, Hillcrest School, the Ocala Star Banner, the Elks Lodge, Belleview High School and Blessed Trinity complex. MCFRs Shady Station 16 Hazmat Team responded to the suspicious package call at Lake Weir High School at 11:04 a.m. The crew used specialized monitors to rule out biological, explosive, chemical and radiological agents and determined the substance inside the green envelope to be an artificial sweetener. One school employee was evaluated, but did not require treatment for symptoms related to hazardous materials exposure. Afterward, MCFRs Hazmat crew responded to the Marion County Courthouse, which had been secured by Ocala Fire Rescue and the Ocala Police Department. There they repeated the process and determined the suspicious substance to be artificial sweetener as well. Six courthouse employees who were in the vicinity of the opened envelope were quarantined and, upon MCFRs arrival, evaluated. No one was injured or treated for symptoms related to hazardous materials exposure. Next, MCFRs Hazmat crew and law enforcement responded to the Ocala Star Banner, which evacuated employees for their safety. This envelope contained artificial sweetener as well.

Friday, June 13 Friday Forum on death penaltyShould the death penalty still have a role in modern society? This is the issue to be debated by Bill Gladson special prosecution supervisor in Floridas Fifth Judicial Circuit, and Bruce Seaman, Presbyterian minister and coordinator of Awake Marion, a coalition of local progressives when the Friday Forum of Marion County next meets at 11:30 a.m. June 13 at Buffet City, State Road 200 at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Brad Rogers, editorial page director of the Ocala Star Banner, will moderate. Roughly 400 of the nations 3,000 inmates on death row await their fate about an hour north of Ocala, several of them from Marion County. How did they get there? According to a Gallup Poll, 60 percent of Americans support the death penalty although the numbers are declining. Since state and local laws generally move in concert with public opinion does our legal system seek justice or does it merely reflect the will of the people? Are some crimes considered so heinous that the perpetrators are deemed beyond the pale of human compassion? What role do our moral leaders play in affecting our views? Our politicians? The media? The Friday Forum, which meets monthly on the second Friday of each month, is a nonpartisan group open to all which seeks to develop civil community dialogue about the important issues of the day. The luncheon costs $10 payable directly to Buffet City. For further information please email FridayForumofMarionCounty@gmail.com or telephone Delphine Herbert (352-873-9970) or Jan Lentz (352-425-6219).

We are delighted to have Sue Connor become a new member of our golf league. Welcome, Sue!Oak Run LibraryOur librarian, Gabriella, in the Oak Run Library, has started a new section on top of the black bookcase called Oldies but Goodies. These are books that you may have promised yourself to read or reread and never got around to it. They will be highlighted in the paper and rotated around periodically. One of the first books is Margaret Mitchells Gone With the Wind. This is an ageless story of the Civil War, love, and Reconstruction. Gone With The Wind was popular with American readers from the onset and was the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published (1936) and again in 1937. As of 2014, a Harris poll found it to be the second favorite book by American readers, just behind the Bible. Another book published in 2009 is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. In the opening pages of Jamie Fords stunning debut novel, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside a hotel, once the gateway to Seattles Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. The narrative shuttles between 1986 and the 1940s in a story that chronicles the losses of old age and the bewilderment of youth. Enjoy these two books and the others on the Oldies but Goodies shelf.Oak Run Performing Arts Company (PACOR)After a record attendance at the May meeting of the Performing Arts Company of Oak Run, high turnout was anticipated to continue at the meeting this past Monday, June 9. At this meeting the scripts for those interested in auditioning for Hello Dolly! were to be handed out. There is still time to express your interest in an on-stage role. Scripts may be obtained through the Director, Dick Caza at 352-274-9574. The monthly Oak Run newsletter had a mistake regarding audition dates. There will not be auditions on Monday, June 23. The correct dates and times are: Tuesday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Thursday, June 26, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 28, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., all at the Palm Grove Auditorium.EDITORS NOTE: Because of late technical issues on Thursday, some portions of this column had to be omitted. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. Fathers Day is Sunday. Its a time to reflect on how your father shaped your life, to appreciate his wisdom and to (hopefully) enjoy his company. Its also a time to enjoy some humor about fathers.The bossOne evening, while sitting around the dinner table, a little girl looked up and asked her father, Daddy, youre the boss, right? Her father was very pleased by this and replied, Yes. Then, the little girl continued, Thats because mommy put you in charge, right?Pitch in, FatherA clergyman on a walk saw a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off. You look hot, my son, said the cleric, why dont you rest a moment, and Ill give you a hand. No thanks, said the young man, my father wouldnt like it. Dont be silly, the minister said. Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water. Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and Ill give him a piece of my mind! Well, replied the young farmer, hes under the load of hay.Clear?A friend is a new father of a little girl named Claire. He told me that hes looking forward to the day when she requires discipline. He says when she misbehaves he may have to clarify the rules for her. Hell say, Clarify have to tell you one more time, youll be sorry.Pop cornLife was a lot simpler when what we honored was father rather than all major credit cards. There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced. When a boy came home from school with a sofa slung across his back and an armchair under his arm, his dad said I told you not to take suites from strangers. Adam had a lot of trouble buying his father a Fathers Day gift. What can you buy somebody whos everything? She got her good looks from her father. Hes a plastic surgeon. Johns father gave him a really cheap dictionary for his birthday. John couldnt find the words to thank him. A father was helping his son with his homework. The father asked, What is the Gross National Product? The boy replied Spinach?Like Father, Like SonA husband reading a newspaper said to his wife, You know, honey, I think there might be some real merit to what this article says. The intelligence of a father often proves a stumbling block to the son. Well, thank heaven, said the wife. At least our James has nothing standing in his way.Wrap upA husband and wife were in the kitchen one Sunday morning. The husband was looking through the many pages of the paper. Honey, have you seen the sports section? the husband asked. Yes, the wife replied. I wrapped the garbage in it and threw it out. But I hadnt seen it yet! the husband protested. You didnt miss much, the wife came back. Just some egg shells, coffee grinds and a few orange peels.Mothers adviceThe bride, upon her engagement, went to her mother and said, Ive found a man just like father! Her mother replied, So what do you want from me, sympathy?Dads revengeMartin had just received his brand new drivers license. The family trooped out to the driveway, and climbed in the car, where he was going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately headed for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver. Ill bet youre back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive, said the beaming boy to his father. Nope, dad replied, Im gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like youve been doing all these years. We may have kicked when our kids were going through those difficult teen years. As they matured and became successful, we have nothing to kick about. Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Having some fun at dads expense Pun Alley Dick Frank Chamber programThe Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP) has launched a new program aimed at serving entrepreneurs. Mini Micro Loans Last year the CEP began an SBA Microloan program, offering up to $50,000 to new or existing small businesses. Now, business seeking less than $3,500 with applicant credit scores of 720 or above, will be required to submit less paperwork and will experience overall faster turn-around times. Rather than putting smaller purchases for working capital, inventory, equipment and supplies on a credit card, area entrepreneurs can now utilize CEPs Mini Micro loans as a financing alternative.

The great revolution in our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. William James Even at advanced ages, there are choices. People can change the way they think, act, and are. The problem arises when people think they cannot. Too many are fearful of change. What will those in my life think? Will they still like me and continue being in my life. We cannot please everyone and shouldnt even try. Lets live what remains of our lives being ourselves changing or not as we see fit.Circle Square lineupThe heat is on this summer as we present an abundance of electrifying and diverse entertainment at the Circle Square Cultural Center. The newly released 2014 Summer/ Fall event lineup begins with Local Legends featuring Dunning Shaw and Second Slice; the Ocala Symphony Orchestra presenting the second annual Red, White and OSO Blue: A salute to our Troops; Quattro Four Divo singing a variety of hits with a very interesting twist; Maxine Nightingale will perform Right Back Where We Started From, Shirley Alston Reeves of the Shirelles will sing Will You Still Love Me and The Ditchfield Family Singers, Americas most versatile family will ring in the holiday season. A fabulous group of tribute artists will also bring you the style and sounds of Motown, Garth Brooks, Neil Diamond, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen. Youll lose yourself in the music as these talented artists pay tribute to some legendary music. All shows begin at 7 p.m. and doors open at 6 p.m. Ticket prices vary by show. Tickets may be purchased in advance online or at the box office.

There are 18 programs that have some openings, with a wide variety of topics, art, computers, ecology, current events, film series, and a lot more. Its a great time to be a lifelong learner! Join your friends and neighbors. A classroom is a great summer destination!The Butler Movie SeriesOn June 5 at 1 p.m., My Man Godfrey was shown at Live Oak Hall. Before showing this movie, Dr. Pat Wellington told the audience a little about it and the actors. The movie opens with a scavenger hunt by rich people during the depression of the 1930s. Scatterbrained socialite, Carol Lombard, hires a vagrant as a butler. William Powell takes that part. Pat told us that in real life the two were married for a short time. He was also engaged to Jean Harlow who died at the age of 23. It was an interesting experience seeing how the rich lived, dressed, and even spoke in the 1930s. The actors then didnt dress or talk as they do now. Watching this black and white film shows how times, people, and the movie industry has changed.

beautiful in spite of some nasty storm forecasts. Stan Doane did the grilling of the hamburgers and hot dogs. His wife Zona helped him and they both did a great job. The social committee dished out the potato salad and baked beans. Dessert was decorated cupcakes and sherbet. All went well and there was plenty of food. Next eventSpruce Creek Norths next event is a long way off.. It will be Labor Day and be a New England Potluck. If you are not sure what a New England potluck is ask some of the people from Maine or Massachusetts, they will know.Be Aware!Be very careful who you hire to do any jobs around your house or yard and dont pay them until the job is done and you are satisfied. CommunitySCN is a small community so not much news, especially in the summer. I am not sure what I will write about unless some residents send me some news. Some of the clubs that still play through the summer are Bingo, Euchre, Mah Jongg, Ladies Poker, Billiards Water exercise and Horseshoe Pitching. Water exercise is in full swing. Water is a little nippy when you first get in but warms up soon. The SCN Craft club has closed shop until the fall. Its a great place to socialize and create new things. Call Marlene Dorner for the fall schedule. Would you believe?Would you believe what you can do for restless legs or Charlie horses? Put two small bars of soap (hotel size) between your sheets at the foot of your bed. Honest it works! Another tip: If you catch a nasty cold and dont want your partner to catch it, cut an onion in half and put each half in a small container (skin side up) in a inch of water and put on each nightstand. It is supposed to remove most of the germs in the air. I havent tried this one yet. My husband Jim loves onions so am afraid he would eat them. But seriously my friend has tried it and she says it works. Those are my little tips for the day. The get well greetings keep coming for my husband Jim. Thanks to all that took time to send them or call. Hats off to TimbeRidge Rehab! A heartfelt note to Rebecca..thank you so much!! I hope to see you all in two weeks. Regards from Jan. Jan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her husband Jim and can be reached via e-mail at JnLiber@aol.com. Or drop a note in the mail slot at the SCN clubhouse. SCN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 BY JOHN EVERLOVE Special to the Citizen O ne day my mom forgot my name and we laughed; a short time later, she forgot her own name and all laughter ceased. Remembering back to that time, some days were normal; most were not and they never got better. In front of my eyes, my mother was taken from me. Her dignity; intelligence; sense of humor; personality and all of her memories were disappearing. I now know that the fear I was facing at that time was nothing compared to the terror she was going through. Alzheimers disease is a cruel thief who takes not just our mere precious possessions but our precious loved ones. Comedians make jokes about Old timers disease but anyone who has had to deal with the cruel malady of Alzheimers knows there is nothing funny about it. A friend of mine has a mom who is going through this agonizing trial and he wanted me to thank the angels who are helping to care for her. For those who have not experienced a loved one with this disease let me try to share a little insight. A person whom you have known you all your life; who cared for you; nursed you and held you; loved and cherished you; fed you; laughed in happy times and wept in sad times with you; is slowly taken away. That same person who shared so much now doesnt know you; some times yells at you; says mean and hateful things; throws tantrums or sits silently in a corner. These are just a few of the complex and frightening symptoms of Alzheimers. While you are looking into the eyes of a person you once loved and knew so well; you sense that their inner self is gone. Some would call it the soul; others something else but the once familiar face and body is now occupied by some stranger. Most of us are not equipped to handle a person with this disease. We have neither the knowledge; skills or emotional fortitude to deal with loved ones as they display bizarre and confusing behaviors. Thus, most of us must rely on care givers; usually in an assisted living facility. Through some miracle, by their nature and their calling these care givers are able to not only cope with these patients; but to understand and comfort them. While we cannot mention the individual facility my friends mom is in or even use her name; for his sake and for all of you who have a loved some one with Alzheimers; let me thank some very special people. They represent all the nurses; nurses aides; care givers and the angels that are in the trenches day in and day out working with some of the most difficult patients in the world. First there are Pam and Laura; Latoya and Kendra. They share the responsibilities with Shaquita; Brittany; Shantille; Velvet and Veronica. Head nurse Joseph leads this team as they provide special care and comfort to their patients. In the kitchen Chef Paula does an outstanding job preparing taste tempting nourishment for the patients. Together they comprise a group of exceptional individuals with exceptional talents and exceptional skills. If we did not have people like these the world would be a different place for not only those we love but for ourselves. These outstanding persons deserve our thanks; have earned our respect and warmed our hearts. Across this great country of ours, there are thousands of people like the ones I just named who are giving marvelous care to some very difficult people.

John Everlove is the Cherrywood columnist for the South Marion Citizen. L ast weekend, I did something I will probably never be able to do in my lifetime in Ocala. I had to drive to Dunedin in Pinellas County to do it. I went to see some Minor League Baseball. The occasion was the St. Lucie Mets, the Class A affiliate of my Major League team, playing the Dunedin Blue Jays. Ive seen reports that the Toronto Blue Jays are going to leave Dunedin. Its easy to see why. The stadium is in the middle of a residential area, surrounded by either houses or schools. Parking is atrocious. I got there the first night about a half hour before the game, and the lot was nearly full. But when I got inside, there were only about 400 people there. I just cant picture what its like when 4,000 people gather for a Major League Spring Training game. As I sat there I thought, Heck, we could probably attract this minor league team to Ocala. When they see pictures of our nice new stadium and all that parking and the easy access, why, theyll Then somebody got a hit or something and brought an end to my pipe dream. But eventually I went back to my dream. Why, Ocala is listed as having a population of 56,000 or so, while Dunedin has about 35,000. Thats just the city. The Blue Jays have to share interest with another Minor League team, the Clearwater affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, which is about 15 miles down U.S. Highway 19. Also in their county is the Tampa Bay Rays, a Major League team that happened to be playing the Seattle Mariners when the Blue Jays were home last weekend, and was holding a continuing tribute to the recently deceased Don Zimmer. On Saturday, the Blue Jays had to compete with the televising of another futile Triple Crown effort. And just across the bay, about a half hour away, is the home of the Tampa Yankees, you know, the team whose executives had Ocala Yankees hats and shirts printed up, only to be shot down. In Ocala, they would be the only pro baseball game in town. Presumably, their games would be on the radio, as they are in Dunedin. There would be promotions almost every night Friday was beer and bacon night, followed by fireworks. Not that many people were drinking, because there were a lot of kids there for the fireworks, but they gave away prizes for the best bacon, and Saturday they gave away Bobbleheads of the Blue Jays mascot, DJ. I thought of getting one and bringing it home to my cat (it was, of course, a blue jay bird), but I passed and left it for someone who really wanted it. There was a limited supply. It was pretty good baseball. Despite the comments of some who said this league was equivalent to college ball as they argued against a new stadium, the Florida State League is one of two of the highest Class A leagues in the country, and there are no rookies on the Mets team. One down side was that one of the top Mets prospects, Brandon Nimmo, a centerfielder, was struck in the forearm or hand by a pitch on Friday, left the game and didnt play on Saturday. I havent been able to find out how he is. The Mets dont need any more people on the disabled list. Another down side was the traffic. Pinellas County never met an intersection that it didnt like putting a red light in front of. And synchronized lights? Forget it. Construction is perpetual, My next trip will come late in July when the Mets are in Daytona Beach against the Daytona Cubs. I plan on being there with my Mets hat on, and Ill probably do some more dreaming. Just wake me up when someone gets a hit. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

P oliticians arent the only ones who do it, but theyre masters of the art: if a topic they dont want to discuss comes up, theyll make a big ruckus about something else to distract attention. It happens every year in Florida right after the state legislative session ends. Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit taxpayer research and government watchdog, issues its Budget Turkey Report. This year it lists about $120 million in appropriations. Reading the report, youll find lots of interesting, worthwhile-sounding projects, and might at first wonder why Florida TaxWatch calls them turkeys. Thats exactly what our legislators want you to do. But the Budget Turkey Report has nothing to do with the projects themselves; its solely about the process by which those projects made it into the budget. The process, not the project. TaxWatch defines budget turkeys as individual lineitems that are appropriated without being subject to a thoughtful and thorough budget process. They violate sound budgeting practices in at least one of these ways: They circumvent the established review and selection process, or go through the process but are funded ahead of higher-priority projects defined by the selection process. They are inserted in the budget during conference committee meetings which means they did not appear in either the final Senate or House budgets. They are appropriations from inappropriate trust funds, duplicative appropriations, or appropriations contingent on legislation that did not pass. When this years Budget Turkey Report was issued, Florida Senate president Don Gaetz jumped to the attack in strong, ugly terms. He is quoted as saying: Florida TaxWatch has again shown that it is possible to be absent all year long from any engagement in the budget process, do no research into the merits of any appropriations, utter not one word of testimony on any proposal or alternative and still convince well-meaning people to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep a well-paid staff employed to absolutely no positive effect other than to get mentioned in one news cycle. Nice job, Sen. Gaetz, of making a big ruckus about something else to distract attention. What he does not want is taxpayers paying attention to legislators stuffing into the state budget a variety of items that did not get adequate public review or legislative scrutiny, and thus skirting the states constitutional checks and balances. No wonder Gaetz and others worked so hard to misdirect public attention. His statement that TaxWatch was absent all year long also is wildly incorrect. As the report details, Florida TaxWatch staff attended every appropriations subcommittee meeting, every appropriations meeting, and each budget conference meeting of the 2014 Florida Legislature. Most of the conference committee meetings lasted 20 minutes or less and included no questions or debate. This lack of transparency is the focus of the Budget Turkey Report. If this years projects had been passed after going through the proper budget process, they wouldnt have been on the Turkey list. Kudos to Florida TaxWatch for its persistence in tracking and publicizing legislative shenanigans. Now its our turn hold elected officials accountable, and demand that budget discussions and decisions be made in the Florida sunshine.

M y father was a rather reserved person. He did not have much to say except when he was talking about his hunting or fishing adventures, and to hear from him, it was always an adventure. When he got started on one of his stories, you better just sit back and forget about everything else. Outside of that, he was rather quiet and reserved and did not have much to say. I always liked that about him for a variety of reasons. I think I take after him in that regard. I just do not have time to hear somebody bloviate on something I am not interested in. For one, my father had no time at all for politics. I am not sure if he was a Republican or Democrat, but I knew he voted every election. Son, he often said, you dont have to take sides one way or the other. When Im with a Democrat, I talk Democrat and when Im with a Republican, I talk Republican. The only thing that matters is what I do when I get in that voting booth. This attitude of his, since Fathers Day is coming up, was something that made a deep impression upon me. Following his counsel has kept me out of quite a few battles throughout the years, especially when I got married. I can never remember my father arguing with my mother. Now, my mother argued with my father, but he never reciprocated. If you want a happy home, he once advised, make sure everybody in the home was happy particularly the one you married. That has helped me through many sticky situations for which I am eternally grateful. Another bit of advice he gave me was simply that you do not have to fight every battle. Only fight those battles, he said with a sly smirk on his face, that you know you can win. I mentioned that he was rather reserved in his speaking, but there was one area where he was profusely proactive. That was in the area of discipline, especially directed toward me. My father was not much different from any of the fathers during that time and they all believed in the biblical admonition, Spare the rod and spoil the child. These fathers were united in making sure none of their children would be spoiled. One rule we had in the house that I did not fully agree with was, if you got a spanking in school (and in those days we got spankings in school) you got a spanking at home. Talk about double dipping! The assumption was that the teacher was right and that the one receiving the spanking was wrong. Back then, 99.9 percent of the time that was true. The spanker was in charge, the spankee took it like a man and you know where. I spent 12 years in the public education system and during that time, my teacher was never wrong. I will not divulge how many times I was wrong, that is between me and the area I sit on. I clearly remember that my teachers back then had what was called the Hickory stick. And boy did those teachers know how to use that Hickory stick and where it would do the most good. My father did not have a Hickory stick as such. Hanging on the wall in the kitchen was an old wooden paddle engraved with, I need thee every hour. I am surprised that that one wooden paddle lasted during my entire childhood. I made one mistake during those childhood days. I was going through a period where the paddle and my bottom were close friends. I was getting a little weary of such friendship and decided I would do something about it. My father had gone to work early that day, as I remember it now, and I was going out the door to go to school when a thought danced in my head. I would take that paddle and dispose of it so that it could no longer be attached to my person. With the advantage of 20/20 hindsight, it was not a perfect plan. I had forgotten about that and two days later, I got into some trouble. It was the kind of trouble that could be resolved only by that wooden paddle. My father went to get the paddle and to his chagrin, and my posFriday, June 13, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The switch on my behind saved time Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR PAGE10 RIVERS By Michael Farris Smith Although Mississippi native Michael Farris Smith was not directly hurt by Hurricane Katrina, he couldnt get the storms devastation to his state out of his mind. He began imagining a storm of Katrinas intensity occurring one month later on the southern Gulf Coast and then another one and another one following until the whole area was almost uninhabitable. And thats the premise of Rivers. Protagonist Cohen says early in the novel that he had forgotten the last day that it hadnt rained, when the sunshine glistened across the drenched land. The government, unable to cope with the catastrophe declares a Line, a geographical boundary drawn 90 miles north of the coastline from the Texas-Louisiana border across the Mississippi coast to Alabama. Those who remained below the Line were on their own. Cohen is one of them. In the mad scramble of evacuation on the highway leading north, his young wife Elisa is killed and with her their unborn child. Now he find it impossible to abandon her grave, his family homestead, and the artifacts if their short marriage. With the help of long-time friend Charlie, who lives above the Line but travels south regularly with inflated-priced necessities, Cohen is kept supplied with gas for his Jeep, whiskey, cigarettes, and canned goods. Normally suspicious and on guard, Cohen twice refuses to stop for a young hitch-hiking couple but passing them a third time he is moved by the girl who seems injured. Although he keeps his pistol aimed at the boy, the pair manages to overpower him, steal his Jeep, and leave him for dead. Cohen revives and vows vengeance. He finds them in a commune held prisoner by a snake-handling, selfordained preacher named Aggie who is Evil incarnate. Aggie beguiles starving couples and single women to join his commune where he murders the men and impregnates the women to fulfill his nefarious plan to repopulate the area. He spares two young brothers who beg Cohen to help them. Thus, heroism is thrust upon this rugged loner. His mind kept remembering Katrina devastation Bookmark Pat Wellington F athers Day is June 15.

There was one case when that happened, and this was it. I will not repeat the lecture that he gave at that time, but I will say that it had a lasting impression upon my posterior. At that time, I wished he had been a man of fewer words. I know times have changed, but I am not sure they have changed for the better. There was a time when parents were in charge of children and responsible for the discipline. Sadly, that day is far gone. The only thing I would say is, are we better off today than we were back then? The Bible admonishes us, And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Discipline, not abuse, is drastically needed among our children today. My father would put it this way, lack of discipline is a form of abuse. Rev. James L.

The Bergdahl matterYour editorial view of June 6 is a good prediction that the Sgt. Bergdahl matter is unlikely to go away in the near future. Its a very political year. My immediate guess was that someone with imagination on the White House staff suggested that repatriating Sgt. Bergdahl could be used as backdoor way to gradually close the prison at Guantanamo without any help from Congress. Mr. Obama saw Sgt. Bergdahl and his family as his kind of people dedicated to saving the world from American imperialism. The President wants to be remembered not only for fulfilling his campaign promise to close Guantanamo, but also for bringing peace to the world by persistent do-goodiness. Jim Flynn Ocala Benghazi In response to the previous letter writer regarding Benghazi. What was written is factually incorrect on each of the points he was trying to make. The writer claims Hillary Clinton accepted responsibility for the death of four Americans who died in Benghazi. Does he consider her saying, Im responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts the same as taking responsibility for what happened in Benghazi? He claims Mrs. Clinton was raked over the coals (by the Republicans). Mrs. Clinton was actually the one who raised her voice when she said, What difference does it make? This was after she couldnt or wouldnt provide an answer as to why Susan Rice, who is not a State Department employee, was the one delivering the false narrative blaming a video. He stated the reason for lack of additional security was due to budget cuts by the Republicans. Another false assertion. During an October 10, 2012 hearing, Charlene Lamb, the State Department official who fielded security requests from the Libya U.S. diplomatic officials had said that money wasnt the reason for the slim security in Libya. She claimed they wanted to keep the security presence in Benghazi artificially low. Another claim that there were hundreds killed in previous Embassy attacks under Bush was inaccurate. During Bushs tenure, sadly, 60 Americans lost their lives in Embassy attacks. He stated the Democrats didnt investigate these attacks, leaving the reader to draw their own conclusion as to why they didnt. The real reason they didnt need to investigate was because President Bush was coming forth with the truth. He said they were terrorist attacks from the very beginning. When Hillary and the Obama administration continued to promote the lie about the video being the cause, it made it necessary to dig further to find the truth. Had they stated the truth immediately, then perhaps this incident would be behind us. Finally, the writer accused the Republicans of politicizing the tragedy, when the truth is, the Obama administration were the ones who politicized it, because a terrorist attack on Obamas watch being so close to the presidential election would be hard to overcome. A recently released email on the Benghazi terror attack shows a senior White House adviser, Ben Rhodes, played a direct and pivotal role in prepping former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice where she blamed an internet video for the attack. His letter was an attempt to assign blame to the Republicans, even though that had nothing to do with the Benghazi attack; while showing no desire to know whether or not the Obama Administration was being less than truthful to the American people. Bob Waas Ocala Sergeant Bergdahl Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has been accused of desertion. There must be a thorough investigation with whatever consequences follow that investigation. The Army is capable of conducting this investigation and any subsequent proceedings internally without interference from politicians, the news media or fickle popular opinion. A more compassionate approach would let the soldier come home and recover from his ordeal before subjecting him to the political fires. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunAnother trade?

Ed Morgan OTOW Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Things that usually come easily and quickly for the Aries Lamb might need more of your time and attention during the next several days. Try to be patient as you work things out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A changing situation can create some complications. But if you apply that sensible Bovine mind to what seems to be a hopeless tangle of confusion, youll soon sort things out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new look for your surroundings is fun. Expect to hear mostly positive comments on your efforts, as well as some well-intended suggestions you might want to note. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Maybe youd rather do anything else than what youre stuck with right now. But if you stop complaining, you might see how this could lead to something with real potential. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Even a proud Leo ultimately recovers from hurt feelings. However, a damaged relationship might never heal unless youre willing to spend more time and effort trying to work things out. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) There are lots of changes on the horizon, so be prepared to make some adjustments in your usually fine-tuned life. One change might impact a personal decision youve been putting off. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Being the dependable person you are could work in your favor for a project that requires both skill and accountability. But check this out carefully. There could be a hidden downside. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A temperamental outburst about a mishandled project causes some fallout. Be sure to couple an apology with an explanation. A new opportunity beckons by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Changing horses midstream is usually unwise but sometimes necessary. Examine your options before making a decision. A colleague has good advice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) While much of your time is involved with business matters, funtime opportunities open up by weeks end. Enjoy yourself, but be careful that you dont overspend. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A revelation opens your eyes to what is really going on in the workplace. What you learn could make a difference in your career path. Be alert for more news. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Not wanting to make waves might be the safest way to deal with a difficult situation. But no substantive changes can be made unless you share your assessments with others.

Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com M ore than 100 golfers gathered at Ocala Palms on Saturday, June 7 to play in the first Veterans Club Golf Tournament. You would think that checking in that many people would be a problem but thanks to the efficiency of volunteers like Sarah Blair; Annie Bardack; Marti Duesel; Eve Houghtaling and others; all the players were not only registered and welcomed but had ample time to enjoy a featured pancake breakfast. Once the meal was over everyone hit the course for 18 holes of golf on the beautiful well groomed links of Ocala Palms Golf Resort. A courtesy cart made the rounds with drinks to keep the golfers hydrated and cool in the warm summer sun. A refreshing breeze wafting through the sunny skies was an added plus. When the golfing was completed everyone came to the clubhouse to enjoy the 19th hole and take part in the silent auction while waiting for lunch. A short time later, Carol, who manages Blancas Restaurant, was calling everyone to the buffet line. Roast Turkey and Egg Plant Parmesan was served up hot and succulent to the hungry throng. In the comfortable and relaxing atmosphere of Blancas; all enjoyed a delicious meal and casual conversation. Prizes were awarded for different flights; closest to the pin; 50/50 and more. At least a third of the golfers were prize winners of some sort and according to the participants; everyone was a winner on this day. Congratulations to Veterans Club President Bill Mahar and Treasurer Richard Hurley who headed up the leadership for this special fund raising event. They were assisted by Vice President Bill Spangenberg; Sgt at Arms Marty Duesel and a host of volunteers of volunteers that included; Janice and Ken McLeod; Ida Mahar; Mary Spangenberg; Ruth Hurley; and of course Holly Bragdon who took the photos. This entire event would not have been possible without the help of the Ocala Palms Golf Resort staff including H.L. Roberts and golf pro Barry Fies. We also greatly appreciate Cherrywood Property Managements Chris and Mario Zacco; and our patron, Norman for their assistance; encouragement and genGolf event put on by Veterans Club was a success Cherrywood John Everlove Some of the participants in the golf tournament. erous support.

We are grateful for the support of all who helped make this charity event a rousing success.

Please see CHERRYWOOD Page 14 O ur next meeting will take place on Thursday, June 19, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks.

Thank you all for your generosity.Theos Graduation from Patriot Service Dogs ProgramThere have been many graduation ceremonies of all kinds this past month or so, but the one closest to our heart was held on May 30 at Lowell Correctional Institution. On that day, Theo the standard poodle graduated from the program and will soon be on his way to his wounded warrior. Theo is so special to us because Next SPCA meeting is Thursday, June 19 A picture of Theos graduation. Paws and Claws Maria Devine our own vice president, Judy Singer, has been his puppy raiser for the past two years. The ceremony began with a slideshow of Theo from a small puppy to the beautiful dog he is today. That elicited a lot of awwws from the crowd while Theo preened shamelessly. The bulk of the Patriot Service Dogs training is provided by the women inmates at Lowell and each dog has a dedicated handler. One by one each handler showed us the types of commands they teach by the dogs age. Puppies from 2 to 6 months receive light training with basic commands like down and sit done in repetition called puppy push-ups. At 6 to 9 months, the difficulty increases as the dogs are taught such things as to quietly lie under a table. At 9 to12 months they begin training with speak, retrieve and hold commands. By 18 months theyre learning advanced retrieve and give commands, as well as how to turn a light switch on and off and how to brace a vet with limited strength. At two years of age, Theo knows 74 commands. Thats quite an accomplishment. Next, Theo and his handler Cassie stood front and center. Through tears of joy and sadness, she described Theo as being fearful when he was younger and needing extra TLC. He was the hardest dog to train, but learned the most. He has a permanent place in my heart. Then she explained how the Patriot Service Dogs Program helped her to regain her self worth and set goals for her future. She also thanked Judy, his puppy raiser, for his progress.

Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com M ore than 100 golfers gathered at Ocala Palms on Saturday, June 7 to play in the first Veterans Club Golf Tournament. You would think that checking in that many people would be a problem but thanks to the efficiency of volunteers like Sarah Blair; Annie Bardack; Marti Duesel; Eve Houghtaling and others; all the players were not only registered and welcomed but had ample time to enjoy a featured pancake breakfast. Once the meal was over everyone hit the course for 18 holes of golf on the beautiful well groomed links of Ocala Palms Golf Resort. A courtesy cart made the rounds with drinks to keep the golfers hydrated and cool in the warm summer sun. A refreshing breeze wafting through the sunny skies was an added plus. When the golfing was completed everyone came to the clubhouse to enjoy the 19th hole and take part in the silent auction while waiting for lunch. A short time later, Carol, who manages Blancas Restaurant, was calling everyone to the buffet line. Roast Turkey and Egg Plant Parmesan was served up hot and succulent to the hungry throng. In the comfortable and relaxing atmosphere of Blancas; all enjoyed a delicious meal and casual conversation. Prizes were awarded for different flights; closest to the pin; 50/50 and more. At least a third of the golfers were prize winners of some sort and according to the participants; everyone was a winner on this day. Congratulations to Veterans Club President Bill Mahar and Treasurer Richard Hurley who headed up the leadership for this special fund raising event. They were assisted by Vice President Bill Spangenberg; Sgt at Arms Marty Duesel and a host of volunteers of volunteers that included; Janice and Ken McLeod; Ida Mahar; Mary Spangenberg; Ruth Hurley; and of course Holly Bragdon who took the photos. This entire event would not have been possible without the help of the Ocala Palms Golf Resort staff including H.L. Roberts and golf pro Barry Fies. We also greatly appreciate Cherrywood Property Managements Chris and Mario Zacco; and our patron, Norman for their assistance; encouragement and genGolf event put on by Veterans Club was a success Cherrywood John Everlove Some of the participants in the golf tournament. erous support. Immediately following the luncheon, President Mahar thanked everyone for their participation and announced that there would be a second annual golf tournament next year. This was met with approval and applause by all of the players. Your Veterans Club supports Patriot Dogs; Fisher House; Wounded Warriors; Ritz House and many other worthy charities within Marion County and the State of Florida. We are grateful for the support of all who helped make this charity event a rousing success. Veterans Club meetingLast Thursday at 2 in the afternoon your Cherrywood Veterans Club held its monthly meeting. At that meeting we discussed the upcoming golf tournament; Veterans Appreciation Day and the very enjoyable and informative boat trip. In addition, your Veterans Club voted to donate $250 to help provide household items for two veterans who are leaving Ritz House to start their new lives. Please see CHERRYWOOD Page 14 O ur next meeting will take place on Thursday, June 19, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. We will have a guest speaker from the Ocala Wildlife Sanctuary (OWLS) so please try to attend. OWLS is a beautiful oasis in the middle of Ocala, where sick, injured or abandoned animals (primarily birds) are nursed back to health and released into the wild. Others with severe injuries have a permanent home there where they are lovingly cared for. Please call our special hotline number at 352-3620985 for more information about our meeting or to contact us for any reason. The SPCA is low on dog food for the Pets on Wheels program. This program provides dog and cat food for people with pets who receive Meals on Wheels. Kibble can be dropped off in the SPCA bin at Winn Dixie in Friendship Center. You can also call us and well arrange an alternate pick up or drop off. Please note that we dont accept any food or treats made in China, so please check before donating. Thank you all for your generosity.Theos Graduation from Patriot Service Dogs ProgramThere have been many graduation ceremonies of all kinds this past month or so, but the one closest to our heart was held on May 30 at Lowell Correctional Institution. On that day, Theo the standard poodle graduated from the program and will soon be on his way to his wounded warrior. Theo is so special to us because Next SPCA meeting is Thursday, June 19 A picture of Theos graduation. Paws and Claws Maria Devine our own vice president, Judy Singer, has been his puppy raiser for the past two years. The ceremony began with a slideshow of Theo from a small puppy to the beautiful dog he is today. That elicited a lot of awwws from the crowd while Theo preened shamelessly. The bulk of the Patriot Service Dogs training is provided by the women inmates at Lowell and each dog has a dedicated handler. One by one each handler showed us the types of commands they teach by the dogs age. Puppies from 2 to 6 months receive light training with basic commands like down and sit done in repetition called puppy push-ups. At 6 to 9 months, the difficulty increases as the dogs are taught such things as to quietly lie under a table. At 9 to12 months they begin training with speak, retrieve and hold commands. By 18 months theyre learning advanced retrieve and give commands, as well as how to turn a light switch on and off and how to brace a vet with limited strength. At two years of age, Theo knows 74 commands. Thats quite an accomplishment. Next, Theo and his handler Cassie stood front and center. Through tears of joy and sadness, she described Theo as being fearful when he was younger and needing extra TLC. He was the hardest dog to train, but learned the most. He has a permanent place in my heart. Then she explained how the Patriot Service Dogs Program helped her to regain her self worth and set goals for her future. She also thanked Judy, his puppy raiser, for his progress.

The Bergdahl matterYour editorial view of June 6 is a good prediction that the Sgt. Bergdahl matter is unlikely to go away in the near future. Its a very political year. My immediate guess was that someone with imagination on the White House staff suggested that repatriating Sgt. Bergdahl could be used as backdoor way to gradually close the prison at Guantanamo without any help from Congress. Mr. Obama saw Sgt. Bergdahl and his family as his kind of people dedicated to saving the world from American imperialism. The President wants to be remembered not only for fulfilling his campaign promise to close Guantanamo, but also for bringing peace to the world by persistent do-goodiness. Jim Flynn Ocala Benghazi In response to the previous letter writer regarding Benghazi. What was written is factually incorrect on each of the points he was trying to make. The writer claims Hillary Clinton accepted responsibility for the death of four Americans who died in Benghazi. Does he consider her saying, Im responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts the same as taking responsibility for what happened in Benghazi? He claims Mrs. Clinton was raked over the coals (by the Republicans). Mrs. Clinton was actually the one who raised her voice when she said, What difference does it make? This was after she couldnt or wouldnt provide an answer as to why Susan Rice, who is not a State Department employee, was the one delivering the false narrative blaming a video. He stated the reason for lack of additional security was due to budget cuts by the Republicans. Another false assertion. During an October 10, 2012 hearing, Charlene Lamb, the State Department official who fielded security requests from the Libya U.S. diplomatic officials had said that money wasnt the reason for the slim security in Libya. She claimed they wanted to keep the security presence in Benghazi artificially low. Another claim that there were hundreds killed in previous Embassy attacks under Bush was inaccurate. During Bushs tenure, sadly, 60 Americans lost their lives in Embassy attacks. He stated the Democrats didnt investigate these attacks, leaving the reader to draw their own conclusion as to why they didnt. The real reason they didnt need to investigate was because President Bush was coming forth with the truth. He said they were terrorist attacks from the very beginning. When Hillary and the Obama administration continued to promote the lie about the video being the cause, it made it necessary to dig further to find the truth. Had they stated the truth immediately, then perhaps this incident would be behind us. Finally, the writer accused the Republicans of politicizing the tragedy, when the truth is, the Obama administration were the ones who politicized it, because a terrorist attack on Obamas watch being so close to the presidential election would be hard to overcome. A recently released email on the Benghazi terror attack shows a senior White House adviser, Ben Rhodes, played a direct and pivotal role in prepping former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice where she blamed an internet video for the attack. His letter was an attempt to assign blame to the Republicans, even though that had nothing to do with the Benghazi attack; while showing no desire to know whether or not the Obama Administration was being less than truthful to the American people. Bob Waas Ocala Sergeant Bergdahl Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has been accused of desertion. There must be a thorough investigation with whatever consequences follow that investigation. The Army is capable of conducting this investigation and any subsequent proceedings internally without interference from politicians, the news media or fickle popular opinion. A more compassionate approach would let the soldier come home and recover from his ordeal before subjecting him to the political fires. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunAnother trade?

Ed Morgan OTOW Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Things that usually come easily and quickly for the Aries Lamb might need more of your time and attention during the next several days. Try to be patient as you work things out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A changing situation can create some complications. But if you apply that sensible Bovine mind to what seems to be a hopeless tangle of confusion, youll soon sort things out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new look for your surroundings is fun. Expect to hear mostly positive comments on your efforts, as well as some well-intended suggestions you might want to note. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Maybe youd rather do anything else than what youre stuck with right now. But if you stop complaining, you might see how this could lead to something with real potential. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Even a proud Leo ultimately recovers from hurt feelings. However, a damaged relationship might never heal unless youre willing to spend more time and effort trying to work things out. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) There are lots of changes on the horizon, so be prepared to make some adjustments in your usually fine-tuned life. One change might impact a personal decision youve been putting off. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Being the dependable person you are could work in your favor for a project that requires both skill and accountability. But check this out carefully. There could be a hidden downside. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A temperamental outburst about a mishandled project causes some fallout. Be sure to couple an apology with an explanation. A new opportunity beckons by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Changing horses midstream is usually unwise but sometimes necessary. Examine your options before making a decision. A colleague has good advice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) While much of your time is involved with business matters, funtime opportunities open up by weeks end. Enjoy yourself, but be careful that you dont overspend. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A revelation opens your eyes to what is really going on in the workplace. What you learn could make a difference in your career path. Be alert for more news. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Not wanting to make waves might be the safest way to deal with a difficult situation. But no substantive changes can be made unless you share your assessments with others.

Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com terior harm, it was not there. Very seldom did my father paddle me when he was really angry. There was one case when that happened, and this was it. I will not repeat the lecture that he gave at that time, but I will say that it had a lasting impression upon my posterior. At that time, I wished he had been a man of fewer words. I know times have changed, but I am not sure they have changed for the better. There was a time when parents were in charge of children and responsible for the discipline. Sadly, that day is far gone. The only thing I would say is, are we better off today than we were back then? The Bible admonishes us, And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Discipline, not abuse, is drastically needed among our children today. My father would put it this way, lack of discipline is a form of abuse. Rev. James L.

M y father was a rather reserved person. He did not have much to say except when he was talking about his hunting or fishing adventures, and to hear from him, it was always an adventure. When he got started on one of his stories, you better just sit back and forget about everything else. Outside of that, he was rather quiet and reserved and did not have much to say. I always liked that about him for a variety of reasons. I think I take after him in that regard. I just do not have time to hear somebody bloviate on something I am not interested in. For one, my father had no time at all for politics. I am not sure if he was a Republican or Democrat, but I knew he voted every election. Son, he often said, you dont have to take sides one way or the other. When Im with a Democrat, I talk Democrat and when Im with a Republican, I talk Republican. The only thing that matters is what I do when I get in that voting booth. This attitude of his, since Fathers Day is coming up, was something that made a deep impression upon me. Following his counsel has kept me out of quite a few battles throughout the years, especially when I got married. I can never remember my father arguing with my mother. Now, my mother argued with my father, but he never reciprocated. If you want a happy home, he once advised, make sure everybody in the home was happy particularly the one you married. That has helped me through many sticky situations for which I am eternally grateful. Another bit of advice he gave me was simply that you do not have to fight every battle. Only fight those battles, he said with a sly smirk on his face, that you know you can win. I mentioned that he was rather reserved in his speaking, but there was one area where he was profusely proactive. That was in the area of discipline, especially directed toward me. My father was not much different from any of the fathers during that time and they all believed in the biblical admonition, Spare the rod and spoil the child. These fathers were united in making sure none of their children would be spoiled. One rule we had in the house that I did not fully agree with was, if you got a spanking in school (and in those days we got spankings in school) you got a spanking at home. Talk about double dipping! The assumption was that the teacher was right and that the one receiving the spanking was wrong. Back then, 99.9 percent of the time that was true. The spanker was in charge, the spankee took it like a man and you know where. I spent 12 years in the public education system and during that time, my teacher was never wrong. I will not divulge how many times I was wrong, that is between me and the area I sit on. I clearly remember that my teachers back then had what was called the Hickory stick. And boy did those teachers know how to use that Hickory stick and where it would do the most good. My father did not have a Hickory stick as such. Hanging on the wall in the kitchen was an old wooden paddle engraved with, I need thee every hour. I am surprised that that one wooden paddle lasted during my entire childhood. I made one mistake during those childhood days. I was going through a period where the paddle and my bottom were close friends. I was getting a little weary of such friendship and decided I would do something about it. My father had gone to work early that day, as I remember it now, and I was going out the door to go to school when a thought danced in my head. I would take that paddle and dispose of it so that it could no longer be attached to my person. With the advantage of 20/20 hindsight, it was not a perfect plan. I had forgotten about that and two days later, I got into some trouble. It was the kind of trouble that could be resolved only by that wooden paddle. My father went to get the paddle and to his chagrin, and my posFriday, June 13, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The switch on my behind saved time Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR PAGE10 RIVERS By Michael Farris Smith Although Mississippi native Michael Farris Smith was not directly hurt by Hurricane Katrina, he couldnt get the storms devastation to his state out of his mind. He began imagining a storm of Katrinas intensity occurring one month later on the southern Gulf Coast and then another one and another one following until the whole area was almost uninhabitable. And thats the premise of Rivers. Protagonist Cohen says early in the novel that he had forgotten the last day that it hadnt rained, when the sunshine glistened across the drenched land. The government, unable to cope with the catastrophe declares a Line, a geographical boundary drawn 90 miles north of the coastline from the Texas-Louisiana border across the Mississippi coast to Alabama. Those who remained below the Line were on their own. Cohen is one of them. In the mad scramble of evacuation on the highway leading north, his young wife Elisa is killed and with her their unborn child. Now he find it impossible to abandon her grave, his family homestead, and the artifacts if their short marriage. With the help of long-time friend Charlie, who lives above the Line but travels south regularly with inflated-priced necessities, Cohen is kept supplied with gas for his Jeep, whiskey, cigarettes, and canned goods. Normally suspicious and on guard, Cohen twice refuses to stop for a young hitch-hiking couple but passing them a third time he is moved by the girl who seems injured. Although he keeps his pistol aimed at the boy, the pair manages to overpower him, steal his Jeep, and leave him for dead. Cohen revives and vows vengeance. He finds them in a commune held prisoner by a snake-handling, selfordained preacher named Aggie who is Evil incarnate. Aggie beguiles starving couples and single women to join his commune where he murders the men and impregnates the women to fulfill his nefarious plan to repopulate the area. He spares two young brothers who beg Cohen to help them. Thus, heroism is thrust upon this rugged loner. His mind kept remembering Katrina devastation Bookmark Pat Wellington F athers Day is June 15.

CommunitySCN is a small community so not much news, especially in the summer. I am not sure what I will write about unless some residents send me some news. Some of the clubs that still play through the summer are Bingo, Euchre, Mah Jongg, Ladies Poker, Billiards Water exercise and Horseshoe Pitching. Water exercise is in full swing. Water is a little nippy when you first get in but warms up soon. The SCN Craft club has closed shop until the fall. Its a great place to socialize and create new things. Call Marlene Dorner for the fall schedule. Would you believe?Would you believe what you can do for restless legs or Charlie horses? Put two small bars of soap (hotel size) between your sheets at the foot of your bed. Honest it works! Another tip: If you catch a nasty cold and dont want your partner to catch it, cut an onion in half and put each half in a small container (skin side up) in a inch of water and put on each nightstand. It is supposed to remove most of the germs in the air. I havent tried this one yet. My husband Jim loves onions so am afraid he would eat them. But seriously my friend has tried it and she says it works. Those are my little tips for the day. The get well greetings keep coming for my husband Jim.

SCN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8 ~ Friday, June 13, 2014 BY JOHN EVERLOVE Special to the Citizen O ne day my mom forgot my name and we laughed; a short time later, she forgot her own name and all laughter ceased. Remembering back to that time, some days were normal; most were not and they never got better. In front of my eyes, my mother was taken from me. Her dignity; intelligence; sense of humor; personality and all of her memories were disappearing. I now know that the fear I was facing at that time was nothing compared to the terror she was going through. Alzheimers disease is a cruel thief who takes not just our mere precious possessions but our precious loved ones. Comedians make jokes about Old timers disease but anyone who has had to deal with the cruel malady of Alzheimers knows there is nothing funny about it. A friend of mine has a mom who is going through this agonizing trial and he wanted me to thank the angels who are helping to care for her. For those who have not experienced a loved one with this disease let me try to share a little insight. A person whom you have known you all your life; who cared for you; nursed you and held you; loved and cherished you; fed you; laughed in happy times and wept in sad times with you; is slowly taken away. That same person who shared so much now doesnt know you; some times yells at you; says mean and hateful things; throws tantrums or sits silently in a corner. These are just a few of the complex and frightening symptoms of Alzheimers. While you are looking into the eyes of a person you once loved and knew so well; you sense that their inner self is gone. Some would call it the soul; others something else but the once familiar face and body is now occupied by some stranger. Most of us are not equipped to handle a person with this disease. We have neither the knowledge; skills or emotional fortitude to deal with loved ones as they display bizarre and confusing behaviors. Thus, most of us must rely on care givers; usually in an assisted living facility. Through some miracle, by their nature and their calling these care givers are able to not only cope with these patients; but to understand and comfort them. While we cannot mention the individual facility my friends mom is in or even use her name; for his sake and for all of you who have a loved some one with Alzheimers; let me thank some very special people. They represent all the nurses; nurses aides; care givers and the angels that are in the trenches day in and day out working with some of the most difficult patients in the world. First there are Pam and Laura; Latoya and Kendra. They share the responsibilities with Shaquita; Brittany; Shantille; Velvet and Veronica. Head nurse Joseph leads this team as they provide special care and comfort to their patients. In the kitchen Chef Paula does an outstanding job preparing taste tempting nourishment for the patients. Together they comprise a group of exceptional individuals with exceptional talents and exceptional skills. If we did not have people like these the world would be a different place for not only those we love but for ourselves. These outstanding persons deserve our thanks; have earned our respect and warmed our hearts. Across this great country of ours, there are thousands of people like the ones I just named who are giving marvelous care to some very difficult people. We want them to know that their work is truly and gratefully appreciated. The things that most people can not do; they do on a daily basis; providing care and hope; kindness and cleanliness; compassion and understanding to those who need it most. Thank you to all of the care givers; you truly are angels of mercy. For a special perspective read the poem An Alzheimers Request by Owen Darnell; its excellent. John Everlove is the Cherrywood columnist for the South Marion Citizen. L ast weekend, I did something I will probably never be able to do in my lifetime in Ocala. I had to drive to Dunedin in Pinellas County to do it. I went to see some Minor League Baseball. The occasion was the St. Lucie Mets, the Class A affiliate of my Major League team, playing the Dunedin Blue Jays. Ive seen reports that the Toronto Blue Jays are going to leave Dunedin. Its easy to see why. The stadium is in the middle of a residential area, surrounded by either houses or schools. Parking is atrocious. I got there the first night about a half hour before the game, and the lot was nearly full. But when I got inside, there were only about 400 people there. I just cant picture what its like when 4,000 people gather for a Major League Spring Training game. As I sat there I thought, Heck, we could probably attract this minor league team to Ocala. When they see pictures of our nice new stadium and all that parking and the easy access, why, theyll Then somebody got a hit or something and brought an end to my pipe dream. But eventually I went back to my dream. Why, Ocala is listed as having a population of 56,000 or so, while Dunedin has about 35,000. Thats just the city. The Blue Jays have to share interest with another Minor League team, the Clearwater affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, which is about 15 miles down U.S. Highway 19. Also in their county is the Tampa Bay Rays, a Major League team that happened to be playing the Seattle Mariners when the Blue Jays were home last weekend, and was holding a continuing tribute to the recently deceased Don Zimmer. On Saturday, the Blue Jays had to compete with the televising of another futile Triple Crown effort. And just across the bay, about a half hour away, is the home of the Tampa Yankees, you know, the team whose executives had Ocala Yankees hats and shirts printed up, only to be shot down. In Ocala, they would be the only pro baseball game in town. Presumably, their games would be on the radio, as they are in Dunedin. There would be promotions almost every night Friday was beer and bacon night, followed by fireworks. Not that many people were drinking, because there were a lot of kids there for the fireworks, but they gave away prizes for the best bacon, and Saturday they gave away Bobbleheads of the Blue Jays mascot, DJ. I thought of getting one and bringing it home to my cat (it was, of course, a blue jay bird), but I passed and left it for someone who really wanted it. There was a limited supply. It was pretty good baseball. Despite the comments of some who said this league was equivalent to college ball as they argued against a new stadium, the Florida State League is one of two of the highest Class A leagues in the country, and there are no rookies on the Mets team. One down side was that one of the top Mets prospects, Brandon Nimmo, a centerfielder, was struck in the forearm or hand by a pitch on Friday, left the game and didnt play on Saturday. I havent been able to find out how he is. The Mets dont need any more people on the disabled list. Another down side was the traffic. Pinellas County never met an intersection that it didnt like putting a red light in front of. And synchronized lights? Forget it. Construction is perpetual, My next trip will come late in July when the Mets are in Daytona Beach against the Daytona Cubs. I plan on being there with my Mets hat on, and Ill probably do some more dreaming. Just wake me up when someone gets a hit. Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

P oliticians arent the only ones who do it, but theyre masters of the art: if a topic they dont want to discuss comes up, theyll make a big ruckus about something else to distract attention. It happens every year in Florida right after the state legislative session ends. Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit taxpayer research and government watchdog, issues its Budget Turkey Report. This year it lists about $120 million in appropriations. Reading the report, youll find lots of interesting, worthwhile-sounding projects, and might at first wonder why Florida TaxWatch calls them turkeys. Thats exactly what our legislators want you to do. But the Budget Turkey Report has nothing to do with the projects themselves; its solely about the process by which those projects made it into the budget. The process, not the project. TaxWatch defines budget turkeys as individual lineitems that are appropriated without being subject to a thoughtful and thorough budget process. They violate sound budgeting practices in at least one of these ways: They circumvent the established review and selection process, or go through the process but are funded ahead of higher-priority projects defined by the selection process. They are inserted in the budget during conference committee meetings which means they did not appear in either the final Senate or House budgets. They are appropriations from inappropriate trust funds, duplicative appropriations, or appropriations contingent on legislation that did not pass. When this years Budget Turkey Report was issued, Florida Senate president Don Gaetz jumped to the attack in strong, ugly terms. He is quoted as saying: Florida TaxWatch has again shown that it is possible to be absent all year long from any engagement in the budget process, do no research into the merits of any appropriations, utter not one word of testimony on any proposal or alternative and still convince well-meaning people to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep a well-paid staff employed to absolutely no positive effect other than to get mentioned in one news cycle. Nice job, Sen. Gaetz, of making a big ruckus about something else to distract attention. What he does not want is taxpayers paying attention to legislators stuffing into the state budget a variety of items that did not get adequate public review or legislative scrutiny, and thus skirting the states constitutional checks and balances. No wonder Gaetz and others worked so hard to misdirect public attention. His statement that TaxWatch was absent all year long also is wildly incorrect. As the report details, Florida TaxWatch staff attended every appropriations subcommittee meeting, every appropriations meeting, and each budget conference meeting of the 2014 Florida Legislature. Most of the conference committee meetings lasted 20 minutes or less and included no questions or debate. This lack of transparency is the focus of the Budget Turkey Report. If this years projects had been passed after going through the proper budget process, they wouldnt have been on the Turkey list. Kudos to Florida TaxWatch for its persistence in tracking and publicizing legislative shenanigans. Now its our turn hold elected officials accountable, and demand that budget discussions and decisions be made in the Florida sunshine.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Stuffing the turkeys into the budget Doing something I cant do in Ocala Complex, frightening symptoms of Alzheimers READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Dear Readers, A lot of folks believe Friday 13th is a bad luck day. This 13th I will be celebrating my two years survival of the big C so I will welcome it as I do all the days, happy to be here in beautiful Oak Run. Writing this column has brought me so many new friends and tomorrow is Donut-Drop In at the Orchid Club, so I hope to meet some of the new residents. I attended the Friends of the Library meeting and I could not but help wonder why most of the residents were not there as their goodies were wonderful. We use to say the ladies at a church in the town I came from had the best bazaars because of the desserts but the Library ladies are as good or better. Laura Genealogy Club The Genealogy Club monthly meeting will be held June 20 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Orchid Club Auditorium. Our program will be presented by Bill Balch who will compare for us Two Basic Computer Word Processing Sites and will relate it to genealogy work. Any Oak Run resident is welcome to attend one of our meetings while considering joining the club. We meet the third Friday of each month at 9:30 a.m. in the Card Room except special meetings such as this month in the Orchid Club.

The great revolution in our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. William James Even at advanced ages, there are choices. People can change the way they think, act, and are. The problem arises when people think they cannot. Too many are fearful of change. What will those in my life think? Will they still like me and continue being in my life. We cannot please everyone and shouldnt even try. Lets live what remains of our lives being ourselves changing or not as we see fit.Circle Square lineupThe heat is on this summer as we present an abundance of electrifying and diverse entertainment at the Circle Square Cultural Center. The newly released 2014 Summer/ Fall event lineup begins with Local Legends featuring Dunning Shaw and Second Slice; the Ocala Symphony Orchestra presenting the second annual Red, White and OSO Blue: A salute to our Troops; Quattro Four Divo singing a variety of hits with a very interesting twist; Maxine Nightingale will perform Right Back Where We Started From, Shirley Alston Reeves of the Shirelles will sing Will You Still Love Me and The Ditchfield Family Singers, Americas most versatile family will ring in the holiday season. A fabulous group of tribute artists will also bring you the style and sounds of Motown, Garth Brooks, Neil Diamond, Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen.

Tickets may be purchased in advance online or at the box office.

There are 18 programs that have some openings, with a wide variety of topics, art, computers, ecology, current events, film series, and a lot more. Its a great time to be a lifelong learner! Join your friends and neighbors. A classroom is a great summer destination!The Butler Movie SeriesOn June 5 at 1 p.m., My Man Godfrey was shown at Live Oak Hall. Before showing this movie, Dr. Pat Wellington told the audience a little about it and the actors. The movie opens with a scavenger hunt by rich people during the depression of the 1930s. Scatterbrained socialite, Carol Lombard, hires a vagrant as a butler. William Powell takes that part. Pat told us that in real life the two were married for a short time. He was also engaged to Jean Harlow who died at the age of 23. It was an interesting experience seeing how the rich lived, dressed, and even spoke in the 1930s. The actors then didnt dress or talk as they do now. Watching this black and white film shows how times, people, and the movie industry has changed.

the Marine Corps Parris Island trip on Oct 22-24, you need to spread the word. If we do not get more travelers we will be forced to cancel the trip, so get some of your friends and family to join you. We have to give the Marine Corps the go ahead for us being there by July 1. Remind them that this is a unique opportunity to see key steps in the process of training new Marine Corps recruits plus you get to watch the grand graduation ceremonies. While there we will be eating meals in the mess hall just like the recruits and according to Marine veterans this is great food. We are staying at Comfort Inn and Suites near the base.

We are delighted to have Sue Connor become a new member of our golf league. Welcome, Sue!Oak Run LibraryOur librarian, Gabriella, in the Oak Run Library, has started a new section on top of the black bookcase called Oldies but Goodies. These are books that you may have promised yourself to read or reread and never got around to it. They will be highlighted in the paper and rotated around periodically. One of the first books is Margaret Mitchells Gone With the Wind. This is an ageless story of the Civil War, love, and Reconstruction. Gone With The Wind was popular with American readers from the onset and was the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published (1936) and again in 1937. As of 2014, a Harris poll found it to be the second favorite book by American readers, just behind the Bible. Another book published in 2009 is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. In the opening pages of Jamie Fords stunning debut novel, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside a hotel, once the gateway to Seattles Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. The narrative shuttles between 1986 and the 1940s in a story that chronicles the losses of old age and the bewilderment of youth. Enjoy these two books and the others on the Oldies but Goodies shelf.Oak Run Performing Arts Company (PACOR)After a record attendance at the May meeting of the Performing Arts Company of Oak Run, high turnout was anticipated to continue at the meeting this past Monday, June 9. At this meeting the scripts for those interested in auditioning for Hello Dolly! were to be handed out. There is still time to express your interest in an on-stage role. Scripts may be obtained through the Director, Dick Caza at 352-274-9574. The monthly Oak Run newsletter had a mistake regarding audition dates. There will not be auditions on Monday, June 23. The correct dates and times are: Tuesday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Thursday, June 26, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 28, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., all at the Palm Grove Auditorium.EDITORS NOTE: Because of late technical issues on Thursday, some portions of this column had to be omitted. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. Fathers Day is Sunday. Its a time to reflect on how your father shaped your life, to appreciate his wisdom and to (hopefully) enjoy his company. Its also a time to enjoy some humor about fathers.The bossOne evening, while sitting around the dinner table, a little girl looked up and asked her father, Daddy, youre the boss, right? Her father was very pleased by this and replied, Yes. Then, the little girl continued, Thats because mommy put you in charge, right?Pitch in, FatherA clergyman on a walk saw a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off. You look hot, my son, said the cleric, why dont you rest a moment, and Ill give you a hand. No thanks, said the young man, my father wouldnt like it. Dont be silly, the minister said. Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water. Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and Ill give him a piece of my mind! Well, replied the young farmer, hes under the load of hay.Clear?A friend is a new father of a little girl named Claire. He told me that hes looking forward to the day when she requires discipline. He says when she misbehaves he may have to clarify the rules for her. Hell say, Clarify have to tell you one more time, youll be sorry.Pop cornLife was a lot simpler when what we honored was father rather than all major credit cards. There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced. When a boy came home from school with a sofa slung across his back and an armchair under his arm, his dad said I told you not to take suites from strangers. Adam had a lot of trouble buying his father a Fathers Day gift. What can you buy somebody whos everything? She got her good looks from her father. Hes a plastic surgeon. Johns father gave him a really cheap dictionary for his birthday. John couldnt find the words to thank him. A father was helping his son with his homework. The father asked, What is the Gross National Product? The boy replied Spinach?Like Father, Like SonA husband reading a newspaper said to his wife, You know, honey, I think there might be some real merit to what this article says. The intelligence of a father often proves a stumbling block to the son. Well, thank heaven, said the wife. At least our James has nothing standing in his way.Wrap upA husband and wife were in the kitchen one Sunday morning. The husband was looking through the many pages of the paper. Honey, have you seen the sports section? the husband asked. Yes, the wife replied. I wrapped the garbage in it and threw it out. But I hadnt seen it yet! the husband protested. You didnt miss much, the wife came back. Just some egg shells, coffee grinds and a few orange peels.Mothers adviceThe bride, upon her engagement, went to her mother and said, Ive found a man just like father! Her mother replied, So what do you want from me, sympathy?Dads revengeMartin had just received his brand new drivers license. The family trooped out to the driveway, and climbed in the car, where he was going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately headed for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver. Ill bet youre back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive, said the beaming boy to his father. Nope, dad replied, Im gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like youve been doing all these years. We may have kicked when our kids were going through those difficult teen years. As they matured and became successful, we have nothing to kick about. Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Having some fun at dads expense Pun Alley Dick Frank Chamber programThe Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP) has launched a new program aimed at serving entrepreneurs. Mini Micro Loans Last year the CEP began an SBA Microloan program, offering up to $50,000 to new or existing small businesses. Now, business seeking less than $3,500 with applicant credit scores of 720 or above, will be required to submit less paperwork and will experience overall faster turn-around times. Rather than putting smaller purchases for working capital, inventory, equipment and supplies on a credit card, area entrepreneurs can now utilize CEPs Mini Micro loans as a financing alternative.

Friday, June 13 Friday Forum on death penaltyShould the death penalty still have a role in modern society? This is the issue to be debated by Bill Gladson special prosecution supervisor in Floridas Fifth Judicial Circuit, and Bruce Seaman, Presbyterian minister and coordinator of Awake Marion, a coalition of local progressives when the Friday Forum of Marion County next meets at 11:30 a.m. June 13 at Buffet City, State Road 200 at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Brad Rogers, editorial page director of the Ocala Star Banner, will moderate. Roughly 400 of the nations 3,000 inmates on death row await their fate about an hour north of Ocala, several of them from Marion County. How did they get there? According to a Gallup Poll, 60 percent of Americans support the death penalty although the numbers are declining. Since state and local laws generally move in concert with public opinion does our legal system seek justice or does it merely reflect the will of the people? Are some crimes considered so heinous that the perpetrators are deemed beyond the pale of human compassion? What role do our moral leaders play in affecting our views? Our politicians? The media? The Friday Forum, which meets monthly on the second Friday of each month, is a nonpartisan group open to all which seeks to develop civil community dialogue about the important issues of the day. The luncheon costs $10 payable directly to Buffet City. For further information please email FridayForumofMarionCounty@gmail.com or telephone Delphine Herbert (352-873-9970) or Jan Lentz (352-425-6219).

It is deliberate, planned, and created to enhance teacher leadership and let them know how important their work is in the achievement of our students. I lead faculty wide book studies designed to encourage professional conversations on learning. As we have focused on student learning, student achievement has increased. In support of her nomination, a student wrote, She has provided us (the students) with the best of the best teachers, which is greatly appreciated to know that I am getting the best education possibleAny problem or difficult situation I have been faced with, she has always had an advantageous solution. No matter how busy she might be, she always has time to talk to any student who needs herLast but not least, she has provided a welcoming learning environment, giving every student at West Port an equal opportunity to be successful. FASA Executive Director Juhan Mixon, Ed.D. stated, Mrs. Ellspermann is a great leader that stays at the forefront of educational standards so she can lead her staff and students to success. She leads by example and shares her knowledge with aspiring administrators across the state. Marion County and Florida are lucky to have Jayne leading the way!

Marion County Fire Rescue worked with Ocala Fire Rescue and cooperated with the Ocala Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office regarding suspicious envelopes received at Lake Weir High School, the Marion County Judicial Center, Forest High School, West Port High School, Hillcrest School, the Ocala Star Banner, the Elks Lodge, Belleview High School and Blessed Trinity complex. MCFRs Shady Station 16 Hazmat Team responded to the suspicious package call at Lake Weir High School at 11:04 a.m. The crew used specialized monitors to rule out biological, explosive, chemical and radiological agents and determined the substance inside the green envelope to be an artificial sweetener. One school employee was evaluated, but did not require treatment for symptoms related to hazardous materials exposure. Afterward, MCFRs Hazmat crew responded to the Marion County Courthouse, which had been secured by Ocala Fire Rescue and the Ocala Police Department. There they repeated the process and determined the suspicious substance to be artificial sweetener as well. Six courthouse employees who were in the vicinity of the opened envelope were quarantined and, upon MCFRs arrival, evaluated. No one was injured or treated for symptoms related to hazardous materials exposure. Next, MCFRs Hazmat crew and law enforcement responded to the Ocala Star Banner, which evacuated employees for their safety. This envelope contained artificial sweetener as well.

The county is being considered as an ideal location to site a 120bed nursing home funded through the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs (FDVA) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Five other Florida counties are also in the running. The June 20 event will offer county residents an opportunity to meet state selection committee representatives and provide public comment in support of the new facility being sited in Marion. Event attendees will be able to enjoy live music and light refreshments, and show their patriotic spirit. The event will take place on the proposed site in the northeast corner of Southwest 80th Street and Southwest 80th Avenue, Ocala (On Top of the World).

Marion County Fire Rescue worked with Ocala Fire Rescue and cooperated with the Ocala Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office regarding suspicious envelopes received at Lake Weir High School, the Marion County Judicial Center, Forest High School, West Port High School, Hillcrest School, the Ocala Star Banner, the Elks Lodge, Belleview High School and Blessed Trinity complex. MCFRs Shady Station 16 Hazmat Team responded to the suspicious package call at Lake Weir High School at 11:04 a.m. The crew used specialized monitors to rule out biological, explosive, chemical and radiological agents and determined the substance inside the green envelope to be an artificial sweetener. One school employee was evaluated, but did not require treatment for symptoms related to hazardous materials exposure. Afterward, MCFRs Hazmat crew responded to the Marion County Courthouse, which had been secured by Ocala Fire Rescue and the Ocala Police Department. There they repeated the process and determined the suspicious substance to be artificial sweetener as well. Six courthouse employees who were in the vicinity of the opened envelope were quarantined and, upon MCFRs arrival, evaluated. No one was injured or treated for symptoms related to hazardous materials exposure. Next, MCFRs Hazmat crew and law enforcement responded to the Ocala Star Banner, which evacuated employees for their safety. This envelope contained artificial sweetener as well.

Friday, June 13 Friday Forum on death penaltyShould the death penalty still have a role in modern society? This is the issue to be debated by Bill Gladson special prosecution supervisor in Floridas Fifth Judicial Circuit, and Bruce Seaman, Presbyterian minister and coordinator of Awake Marion, a coalition of local progressives when the Friday Forum of Marion County next meets at 11:30 a.m. June 13 at Buffet City, State Road 200 at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Brad Rogers, editorial page director of the Ocala Star Banner, will moderate. Roughly 400 of the nations 3,000 inmates on death row await their fate about an hour north of Ocala, several of them from Marion County. How did they get there? According to a Gallup Poll, 60 percent of Americans support the death penalty although the numbers are declining. Since state and local laws generally move in concert with public opinion does our legal system seek justice or does it merely reflect the will of the people? Are some crimes considered so heinous that the perpetrators are deemed beyond the pale of human compassion? What role do our moral leaders play in affecting our views? Our politicians? The media? The Friday Forum, which meets monthly on the second Friday of each month, is a nonpartisan group open to all which seeks to develop civil community dialogue about the important issues of the day. The luncheon costs $10 payable directly to Buffet City.

We are delighted to have Sue Connor become a new member of our golf league. Welcome, Sue!Oak Run LibraryOur librarian, Gabriella, in the Oak Run Library, has started a new section on top of the black bookcase called Oldies but Goodies. These are books that you may have promised yourself to read or reread and never got around to it. They will be highlighted in the paper and rotated around periodically. One of the first books is Margaret Mitchells Gone With the Wind. This is an ageless story of the Civil War, love, and Reconstruction. Gone With The Wind was popular with American readers from the onset and was the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published (1936) and again in 1937. As of 2014, a Harris poll found it to be the second favorite book by American readers, just behind the Bible. Another book published in 2009 is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. In the opening pages of Jamie Fords stunning debut novel, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside a hotel, once the gateway to Seattles Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. The narrative shuttles between 1986 and the 1940s in a story that chronicles the losses of old age and the bewilderment of youth. Enjoy these two books and the others on the Oldies but Goodies shelf.Oak Run Performing Arts Company (PACOR)After a record attendance at the May meeting of the Performing Arts Company of Oak Run, high turnout was anticipated to continue at the meeting this past Monday, June 9. At this meeting the scripts for those interested in auditioning for Hello Dolly! were to be handed out. There is still time to express your interest in an on-stage role. Scripts may be obtained through the Director, Dick Caza at 352-274-9574. The monthly Oak Run newsletter had a mistake regarding audition dates. There will not be auditions on Monday, June 23. The correct dates and times are: Tuesday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Thursday, June 26, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 28, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., all at the Palm Grove Auditorium.EDITORS NOTE: Because of late technical issues on Thursday, some portions of this column had to be omitted. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. Fathers Day is Sunday. Its a time to reflect on how your father shaped your life, to appreciate his wisdom and to (hopefully) enjoy his company. Its also a time to enjoy some humor about fathers.The bossOne evening, while sitting around the dinner table, a little girl looked up and asked her father, Daddy, youre the boss, right? Her father was very pleased by this and replied, Yes. Then, the little girl continued, Thats because mommy put you in charge, right?Pitch in, FatherA clergyman on a walk saw a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off. You look hot, my son, said the cleric, why dont you rest a moment, and Ill give you a hand. No thanks, said the young man, my father wouldnt like it. Dont be silly, the minister said. Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water. Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and Ill give him a piece of my mind! Well, replied the young farmer, hes under the load of hay.Clear?A friend is a new father of a little girl named Claire. He told me that hes looking forward to the day when she requires discipline. He says when she misbehaves he may have to clarify the rules for her. Hell say, Clarify have to tell you one more time, youll be sorry.Pop cornLife was a lot simpler when what we honored was father rather than all major credit cards. There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced. When a boy came home from school with a sofa slung across his back and an armchair under his arm, his dad said I told you not to take suites from strangers. Adam had a lot of trouble buying his father a Fathers Day gift. What can you buy somebody whos everything? She got her good looks from her father. Hes a plastic surgeon. Johns father gave him a really cheap dictionary for his birthday. John couldnt find the words to thank him. A father was helping his son with his homework. The father asked, What is the Gross National Product? The boy replied Spinach?Like Father, Like SonA husband reading a newspaper said to his wife, You know, honey, I think there might be some real merit to what this article says. The intelligence of a father often proves a stumbling block to the son. Well, thank heaven, said the wife. At least our James has nothing standing in his way.Wrap upA husband and wife were in the kitchen one Sunday morning. The husband was looking through the many pages of the paper. Honey, have you seen the sports section? the husband asked. Yes, the wife replied. I wrapped the garbage in it and threw it out. But I hadnt seen it yet! the husband protested. You didnt miss much, the wife came back. Just some egg shells, coffee grinds and a few orange peels.Mothers adviceThe bride, upon her engagement, went to her mother and said, Ive found a man just like father! Her mother replied, So what do you want from me, sympathy?Dads revengeMartin had just received his brand new drivers license. The family trooped out to the driveway, and climbed in the car, where he was going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately headed for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver. Ill bet youre back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive, said the beaming boy to his father. Nope, dad replied, Im gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like youve been doing all these years. We may have kicked when our kids were going through those difficult teen years. As they matured and became successful, we have nothing to kick about. Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Having some fun at dads expense Pun Alley Dick Frank Chamber programThe Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP) has launched a new program aimed at serving entrepreneurs. Mini Micro Loans Last year the CEP began an SBA Microloan program, offering up to $50,000 to new or existing small businesses. Now, business seeking less than $3,500 with applicant credit scores of 720 or above, will be required to submit less paperwork and will experience overall faster turn-around times. Rather than putting smaller purchases for working capital, inventory, equipment and supplies on a credit card, area entrepreneurs can now utilize CEPs Mini Micro loans as a financing alternative.

The great revolution in our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. William James Even at advanced ages, there are choices. People can change the way they think, act, and are. The problem arises when people think they cannot. Too many are fearful of change. What will those in my life think? Will they still like me and continue being in my life. We cannot please everyone and shouldnt even try. Lets live what remains of our lives being ourselves changing or not as we see fit.Circle Square lineupThe heat is on this summer as we present an abundance of electrifying and diverse entertainment at the Circle Square Cultural Center.

Join your friends and neighbors. A classroom is a great summer destination!The Butler Movie SeriesOn June 5 at 1 p.m., My Man Godfrey was shown at Live Oak Hall. Before showing this movie, Dr. Pat Wellington told the audience a little about it and the actors. The movie opens with a scavenger hunt by rich people during the depression of the 1930s. Scatterbrained socialite, Carol Lombard, hires a vagrant as a butler. William Powell takes that part. Pat told us that in real life the two were married for a short time. He was also engaged to Jean Harlow who died at the age of 23. It was an interesting experience seeing how the rich lived, dressed, and even spoke in the 1930s. The actors then didnt dress or talk as they do now. Watching this black and white film shows how times, people, and the movie industry has changed.

beautiful in spite of some nasty storm forecasts. Stan Doane did the grilling of the hamburgers and hot dogs. His wife Zona helped him and they both did a great job. The social committee dished out the potato salad and baked beans. Dessert was decorated cupcakes and sherbet. All went well and there was plenty of food.Next eventSpruce Creek Norths next event is a long way off.. It will be Labor Day and be a New England Potluck. If you are not sure what a New England potluck is ask some of the people from Maine or Massachusetts, they will know.Be Aware!Be very careful who you hire to do any jobs around your house or yard and dont pay them until the job is done and you are satisfied.CommunitySCN is a small community so not much news, especially in the summer. I am not sure what I will write about unless some residents send me some news. Some of the clubs that still play through the summer are Bingo, Euchre, Mah Jongg, Ladies Poker, Billiards Water exercise and Horseshoe Pitching. Water exercise is in full swing. Water is a little nippy when you first get in but warms up soon. The SCN Craft club has closed shop until the fall. Its a great place to socialize and create new things. Call Marlene Dorner for the fall schedule.Would you believe?Would you believe what you can do for restless legs or Charlie horses? Put two small bars of soap (hotel size) between your sheets at the foot of your bed. Honest it works! Another tip: If you catch a nasty cold and dont want your partner to catch it, cut an onion in half and put each half in a small container (skin side up) in a inch of water and put on each nightstand. It is supposed to remove most of the germs in the air. I havent tried this one yet. My husband Jim loves onions so am afraid he would eat them. But seriously my friend has tried it and she says it works. Those are my little tips for the day. The get well greetings keep coming for my husband Jim. Thanks to all that took time to send them or call. Hats off to TimbeRidge Rehab! A heartfelt note to Rebecca..thank you so much!! I hope to see you all in two weeks. Regards from Jan.Jan Liberio resides in Spruce Creek North with her husband Jim and can be reached via e-mail at JnLiber@aol.com. Or drop a note in the mail slot at the SCN clubhouse. SCNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 13, 2014 BY JOHN EVERLOVE Special to the CitizenOne day my mom forgot my name and we laughed; a short time later, she forgot her own name and all laughter ceased. Remembering back to that time, some days were normal; most were not and they never got better. In front of my eyes, my mother was taken from me. Her dignity; intelligence; sense of humor; personality and all of her memories were disappearing. I now know that the fear I was facing at that time was nothing compared to the terror she was going through. Alzheimers disease is a cruel thief who takes not just our mere precious possessions but our precious loved ones. Comedians make jokes about Old timers disease but anyone who has had to deal with the cruel malady of Alzheimers knows there is nothing funny about it. A friend of mine has a mom who is going through this agonizing trial and he wanted me to thank the angels who are helping to care for her. For those who have not experienced a loved one with this disease let me try to share a little insight. A person whom you have known you all your life; who cared for you; nursed you and held you; loved and cherished you; fed you; laughed in happy times and wept in sad times with you; is slowly taken away. That same person who shared so much now doesnt know you; some times yells at you; says mean and hateful things; throws tantrums or sits silently in a corner. These are just a few of the complex and frightening symptoms of Alzheimers. While you are looking into the eyes of a person you once loved and knew so well; you sense that their inner self is gone. Some would call it the soul; others something else but the once familiar face and body is now occupied by some stranger. Most of us are not equipped to handle a person with this disease. We have neither the knowledge; skills or emotional fortitude to deal with loved ones as they display bizarre and confusing behaviors. Thus, most of us must rely on care givers; usually in an assisted living facility. Through some miracle, by their nature and their calling these care givers are able to not only cope with these patients; but to understand and comfort them. While we cannot mention the individual facility my friends mom is in or even use her name; for his sake and for all of you who have a loved some one with Alzheimers; let me thank some very special people. They represent all the nurses; nurses aides; care givers and the angels that are in the trenches day in and day out working with some of the most difficult patients in the world. First there are Pam and Laura; Latoya and Kendra. They share the responsibilities with Shaquita; Brittany; Shantille; Velvet and Veronica. Head nurse Joseph leads this team as they provide special care and comfort to their patients. In the kitchen Chef Paula does an outstanding job preparing taste tempting nourishment for the patients. Together they comprise a group of exceptional individuals with exceptional talents and exceptional skills. If we did not have people like these the world would be a different place for not only those we love but for ourselves. These outstanding persons deserve our thanks; have earned our respect and warmed our hearts. Across this great country of ours, there are thousands of people like the ones I just named who are giving marvelous care to some very difficult people. We want them to know that their work is truly and gratefully appreciated. The things that most people can not do; they do on a daily basis; providing care and hope; kindness and cleanliness; compassion and understanding to those who need it most. Thank you to all of the care givers; you truly are angels of mercy. For a special perspective read the poem An Alzheimers Request by Owen Darnell; its excellent. John Everlove is the Cherrywood columnist for the South Marion Citizen. Last weekend, I did something I will probably never be able to do in my lifetime in Ocala. I had to drive to Dunedin in Pinellas County to do it. I went to see some Minor League Baseball. The occasion was the St. Lucie Mets, the Class A affiliate of my Major League team, playing the Dunedin Blue Jays. Ive seen reports that the Toronto Blue Jays are going to leave Dunedin. Its easy to see why. The stadium is in the middle of a residential area, surrounded by either houses or schools. Parking is atrocious. I got there the first night about a half hour before the game, and the lot was nearly full. But when I got inside, there were only about 400 people there. I just cant picture what its like when 4,000 people gather for a Major League Spring Training game. As I sat there I thought, Heck, we could probably attract this minor league team to Ocala. When they see pictures of our nice new stadium and all that parking and the easy access, why, theyll Then somebody got a hit or something and brought an end to my pipe dream. But eventually I went back to my dream. Why, Ocala is listed as having a population of 56,000 or so, while Dunedin has about 35,000. Thats just the city. The Blue Jays have to share interest with another Minor League team, the Clearwater affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, which is about 15 miles down U.S. Highway 19. Also in their county is the Tampa Bay Rays, a Major League team that happened to be playing the Seattle Mariners when the Blue Jays were home last weekend, and was holding a continuing tribute to the recently deceased Don Zimmer. On Saturday, the Blue Jays had to compete with the televising of another futile Triple Crown effort. And just across the bay, about a half hour away, is the home of the Tampa Yankees, you know, the team whose executives had Ocala Yankees hats and shirts printed up, only to be shot down. In Ocala, they would be the only pro baseball game in town. Presumably, their games would be on the radio, as they are in Dunedin. There would be promotions almost every night Friday was beer and bacon night, followed by fireworks. Not that many people were drinking, because there were a lot of kids there for the fireworks, but they gave away prizes for the best bacon, and Saturday they gave away Bobbleheads of the Blue Jays mascot, DJ. I thought of getting one and bringing it home to my cat (it was, of course, a blue jay bird), but I passed and left it for someone who really wanted it. There was a limited supply. It was pretty good baseball. Despite the comments of some who said this league was equivalent to college ball as they argued against a new stadium, the Florida State League is one of two of the highest Class A leagues in the country, and there are no rookies on the Mets team. One down side was that one of the top Mets prospects, Brandon Nimmo, a centerfielder, was struck in the forearm or hand by a pitch on Friday, left the game and didnt play on Saturday. I havent been able to find out how he is. The Mets dont need any more people on the disabled list. Another down side was the traffic. Pinellas County never met an intersection that it didnt like putting a red light in front of. And synchronized lights? Forget it. Construction is perpetual, My next trip will come late in July when the Mets are in Daytona Beach against the Daytona Cubs. I plan on being there with my Mets hat on, and Ill probably do some more dreaming. Just wake me up when someone gets a hit.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Politicians arent the only ones who do it, but theyre masters of the art: if a topic they dont want to discuss comes up, theyll make a big ruckus about something else to distract attention. It happens every year in Florida right after the state legislative session ends. Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit taxpayer research and government watchdog, issues its Budget Turkey Report. This year it lists about $120 million in appropriations. Reading the report, youll find lots of interesting, worthwhile-sounding projects, and might at first wonder why Florida TaxWatch calls them turkeys. Thats exactly what our legislators want you to do. But the Budget Turkey Report has nothing to do with the projects themselves; its solely about the process by which those projects made it into the budget. The process, not the project. TaxWatch defines budget turkeys as individual lineitems that are appropriated without being subject to a thoughtful and thorough budget process. They violate sound budgeting practices in at least one of these ways: They circumvent the established review and selection process, or go through the process but are funded ahead of higher-priority projects defined by the selection process. They are inserted in the budget during conference committee meetings which means they did not appear in either the final Senate or House budgets. They are appropriations from inappropriate trust funds, duplicative appropriations, or appropriations contingent on legislation that did not pass. When this years Budget Turkey Report was issued, Florida Senate president Don Gaetz jumped to the attack in strong, ugly terms. He is quoted as saying: Florida TaxWatch has again shown that it is possible to be absent all year long from any engagement in the budget process, do no research into the merits of any appropriations, utter not one word of testimony on any proposal or alternative and still convince well-meaning people to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep a well-paid staff employed to absolutely no positive effect other than to get mentioned in one news cycle. Nice job, Sen. Gaetz, of making a big ruckus about something else to distract attention. What he does not want is taxpayers paying attention to legislators stuffing into the state budget a variety of items that did not get adequate public review or legislative scrutiny, and thus skirting the states constitutional checks and balances. No wonder Gaetz and others worked so hard to misdirect public attention. His statement that TaxWatch was absent all year long also is wildly incorrect. As the report details, Florida TaxWatch staff attended every appropriations subcommittee meeting, every appropriations meeting, and each budget conference meeting of the 2014 Florida Legislature. Most of the conference committee meetings lasted 20 minutes or less and included no questions or debate. This lack of transparency is the focus of the Budget Turkey Report. If this years projects had been passed after going through the proper budget process, they wouldnt have been on the Turkey list. Kudos to Florida TaxWatch for its persistence in tracking and publicizing legislative shenanigans. Now its our turn hold elected officials accountable, and demand that budget discussions and decisions be made in the Florida sunshine.

My father was a rather reserved person. He did not have much to say except when he was talking about his hunting or fishing adventures, and to hear from him, it was always an adventure. When he got started on one of his stories, you better just sit back and forget about everything else. Outside of that, he was rather quiet and reserved and did not have much to say. I always liked that about him for a variety of reasons. I think I take after him in that regard. I just do not have time to hear somebody bloviate on something I am not interested in. For one, my father had no time at all for politics. I am not sure if he was a Republican or Democrat, but I knew he voted every election. Son, he often said, you dont have to take sides one way or the other. When Im with a Democrat, I talk Democrat and when Im with a Republican, I talk Republican. The only thing that matters is what I do when I get in that voting booth. This attitude of his, since Fathers Day is coming up, was something that made a deep impression upon me. Following his counsel has kept me out of quite a few battles throughout the years, especially when I got married. I can never remember my father arguing with my mother. Now, my mother argued with my father, but he never reciprocated. If you want a happy home, he once advised, make sure everybody in the home was happy particularly the one you married. That has helped me through many sticky situations for which I am eternally grateful. Another bit of advice he gave me was simply that you do not have to fight every battle. Only fight those battles, he said with a sly smirk on his face, that you know you can win. I mentioned that he was rather reserved in his speaking, but there was one area where he was profusely proactive. That was in the area of discipline, especially directed toward me. My father was not much different from any of the fathers during that time and they all believed in the biblical admonition, Spare the rod and spoil the child. These fathers were united in making sure none of their children would be spoiled. One rule we had in the house that I did not fully agree with was, if you got a spanking in school (and in those days we got spankings in school) you got a spanking at home. Talk about double dipping! The assumption was that the teacher was right and that the one receiving the spanking was wrong. Back then, 99.9 percent of the time that was true. The spanker was in charge, the spankee took it like a man and you know where. I spent 12 years in the public education system and during that time, my teacher was never wrong. I will not divulge how many times I was wrong, that is between me and the area I sit on. I clearly remember that my teachers back then had what was called the Hickory stick. And boy did those teachers know how to use that Hickory stick and where it would do the most good. My father did not have a Hickory stick as such. Hanging on the wall in the kitchen was an old wooden paddle engraved with, I need thee every hour. I am surprised that that one wooden paddle lasted during my entire childhood. I made one mistake during those childhood days. I was going through a period where the paddle and my bottom were close friends. I was getting a little weary of such friendship and decided I would do something about it. My father had gone to work early that day, as I remember it now, and I was going out the door to go to school when a thought danced in my head. I would take that paddle and dispose of it so that it could no longer be attached to my person. With the advantage of 20/20 hindsight, it was not a perfect plan. I had forgotten about that and two days later, I got into some trouble. It was the kind of trouble that could be resolved only by that wooden paddle. My father went to get the paddle and to his chagrin, and my pos-Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The switch on my behind saved time Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 RIVERS By Michael Farris Smith Although Mississippi native Michael Farris Smith was not directly hurt by Hurricane Katrina, he couldnt get the storms devastation to his state out of his mind. He began imagining a storm of Katrinas intensity occurring one month later on the southern Gulf Coast and then another one and another one following until the whole area was almost uninhabitable. And thats the premise of Rivers. Protagonist Cohen says early in the novel that he had forgotten the last day that it hadnt rained, when the sunshine glistened across the drenched land. The government, unable to cope with the catastrophe declares a Line, a geographical boundary drawn 90 miles north of the coastline from the Texas-Louisiana border across the Mississippi coast to Alabama. Those who remained below the Line were on their own. Cohen is one of them. In the mad scramble of evacuation on the highway leading north, his young wife Elisa is killed and with her their unborn child. Now he find it impossible to abandon her grave, his family homestead, and the artifacts if their short marriage. With the help of long-time friend Charlie, who lives above the Line but travels south regularly with inflated-priced necessities, Cohen is kept supplied with gas for his Jeep, whiskey, cigarettes, and canned goods. Normally suspicious and on guard, Cohen twice refuses to stop for a young hitch-hiking couple but passing them a third time he is moved by the girl who seems injured. Although he keeps his pistol aimed at the boy, the pair manages to overpower him, steal his Jeep, and leave him for dead. Cohen revives and vows vengeance. He finds them in a commune held prisoner by a snake-handling, selfordained preacher named Aggie who is Evil incarnate. Aggie beguiles starving couples and single women to join his commune where he murders the men and impregnates the women to fulfill his nefarious plan to repopulate the area. He spares two young brothers who beg Cohen to help them. Thus, heroism is thrust upon this rugged loner. His mind kept remembering Katrina devastation Bookmark Pat Wellington Fathers Day is June 15.

Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com terior harm, it was not there. Very seldom did my father paddle me when he was really angry. There was one case when that happened, and this was it. I will not repeat the lecture that he gave at that time, but I will say that it had a lasting impression upon my posterior. At that time, I wished he had been a man of fewer words. I know times have changed, but I am not sure they have changed for the better. There was a time when parents were in charge of children and responsible for the discipline. Sadly, that day is far gone. The only thing I would say is, are we better off today than we were back then? The Bible admonishes us, And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Discipline, not abuse, is drastically needed among our children today. My father would put it this way, lack of discipline is a form of abuse.Rev. James L.

The Bergdahl matterYour editorial view of June 6 is a good prediction that the Sgt. Bergdahl matter is unlikely to go away in the near future. Its a very political year. My immediate guess was that someone with imagination on the White House staff suggested that repatriating Sgt. Bergdahl could be used as backdoor way to gradually close the prison at Guantanamo without any help from Congress. Mr. Obama saw Sgt. Bergdahl and his family as his kind of people dedicated to saving the world from American imperialism. The President wants to be remembered not only for fulfilling his campaign promise to close Guantanamo, but also for bringing peace to the world by persistent do-goodiness. Jim Flynn OcalaBenghaziIn response to the previous letter writer regarding Benghazi. What was written is factually incorrect on each of the points he was trying to make. The writer claims Hillary Clinton accepted responsibility for the death of four Americans who died in Benghazi. Does he consider her saying, Im responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts the same as taking responsibility for what happened in Benghazi? He claims Mrs. Clinton was raked over the coals (by the Republicans). Mrs. Clinton was actually the one who raised her voice when she said, What difference does it make? This was after she couldnt or wouldnt provide an answer as to why Susan Rice, who is not a State Department employee, was the one delivering the false narrative blaming a video. He stated the reason for lack of additional security was due to budget cuts by the Republicans. Another false assertion. During an October 10, 2012 hearing, Charlene Lamb, the State Department official who fielded security requests from the Libya U.S. diplomatic officials had said that money wasnt the reason for the slim security in Libya. She claimed they wanted to keep the security presence in Benghazi artificially low. Another claim that there were hundreds killed in previous Embassy attacks under Bush was inaccurate. During Bushs tenure, sadly, 60 Americans lost their lives in Embassy attacks. He stated the Democrats didnt investigate these attacks, leaving the reader to draw their own conclusion as to why they didnt. The real reason they didnt need to investigate was because President Bush was coming forth with the truth. He said they were terrorist attacks from the very beginning. When Hillary and the Obama administration continued to promote the lie about the video being the cause, it made it necessary to dig further to find the truth. Had they stated the truth immediately, then perhaps this incident would be behind us. Finally, the writer accused the Republicans of politicizing the tragedy, when the truth is, the Obama administration were the ones who politicized it, because a terrorist attack on Obamas watch being so close to the presidential election would be hard to overcome. A recently released email on the Benghazi terror attack shows a senior White House adviser, Ben Rhodes, played a direct and pivotal role in prepping former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice where she blamed an internet video for the attack. His letter was an attempt to assign blame to the Republicans, even though that had nothing to do with the Benghazi attack; while showing no desire to know whether or not the Obama Administration was being less than truthful to the American people. Bob Waas OcalaSergeant Bergdahl Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has been accused of desertion. There must be a thorough investigation with whatever consequences follow that investigation. The Army is capable of conducting this investigation and any subsequent proceedings internally without interference from politicians, the news media or fickle popular opinion. A more compassionate approach would let the soldier come home and recover from his ordeal before subjecting him to the political fires.

Ed Morgan OTOWFriday, June 13, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Things that usually come easily and quickly for the Aries Lamb might need more of your time and attention during the next several days. Try to be patient as you work things out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A changing situation can create some complications. But if you apply that sensible Bovine mind to what seems to be a hopeless tangle of confusion, youll soon sort things out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new look for your surroundings is fun. Expect to hear mostly positive comments on your efforts, as well as some well-intended suggestions you might want to note. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Maybe youd rather do anything else than what youre stuck with right now. But if you stop complaining, you might see how this could lead to something with real potential. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Even a proud Leo ultimately recovers from hurt feelings. However, a damaged relationship might never heal unless youre willing to spend more time and effort trying to work things out. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) There are lots of changes on the horizon, so be prepared to make some adjustments in your usually fine-tuned life. One change might impact a personal decision youve been putting off. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Being the dependable person you are could work in your favor for a project that requires both skill and accountability. But check this out carefully. There could be a hidden downside. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A temperamental outburst about a mishandled project causes some fallout. Be sure to couple an apology with an explanation. A new opportunity beckons by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Changing horses midstream is usually unwise but sometimes necessary. Examine your options before making a decision. A colleague has good advice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) While much of your time is involved with business matters, funtime opportunities open up by weeks end. Enjoy yourself, but be careful that you dont overspend. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A revelation opens your eyes to what is really going on in the workplace. What you learn could make a difference in your career path. Be alert for more news. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Not wanting to make waves might be the safest way to deal with a difficult situation. But no substantive changes can be made unless you share your assessments with others.

Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com More than 100 golfers gathered at Ocala Palms on Saturday, June 7 to play in the first Veterans Club Golf Tournament. You would think that checking in that many people would be a problem but thanks to the efficiency of volunteers like Sarah Blair; Annie Bardack; Marti Duesel; Eve Houghtaling and others; all the players were not only registered and welcomed but had ample time to enjoy a featured pancake breakfast. Once the meal was over everyone hit the course for 18 holes of golf on the beautiful well groomed links of Ocala Palms Golf Resort. A courtesy cart made the rounds with drinks to keep the golfers hydrated and cool in the warm summer sun. A refreshing breeze wafting through the sunny skies was an added plus. When the golfing was completed everyone came to the clubhouse to enjoy the 19th hole and take part in the silent auction while waiting for lunch. A short time later, Carol, who manages Blancas Restaurant, was calling everyone to the buffet line. Roast Turkey and Egg Plant Parmesan was served up hot and succulent to the hungry throng. In the comfortable and relaxing atmosphere of Blancas; all enjoyed a delicious meal and casual conversation. Prizes were awarded for different flights; closest to the pin; 50/50 and more. At least a third of the golfers were prize winners of some sort and according to the participants; everyone was a winner on this day. Congratulations to Veterans Club President Bill Mahar and Treasurer Richard Hurley who headed up the leadership for this special fund raising event. They were assisted by Vice President Bill Spangenberg; Sgt at Arms Marty Duesel and a host of volunteers of volunteers that included; Janice and Ken McLeod; Ida Mahar; Mary Spangenberg; Ruth Hurley; and of course Holly Bragdon who took the photos. This entire event would not have been possible without the help of the Ocala Palms Golf Resort staff including H.L. Roberts and golf pro Barry Fies. We also greatly appreciate Cherrywood Property Managements Chris and Mario Zacco; and our patron, Norman for their assistance; encouragement and genGolf event put on by Veterans Club was a success Cherrywood John Everlove Some of the participants in the golf tournament. erous support. Immediately following the luncheon, President Mahar thanked everyone for their participation and announced that there would be a second annual golf tournament next year. This was met with approval and applause by all of the players. Your Veterans Club supports Patriot Dogs; Fisher House; Wounded Warriors; Ritz House and many other worthy charities within Marion County and the State of Florida. We are grateful for the support of all who helped make this charity event a rousing success. Veterans Club meetingLast Thursday at 2 in the afternoon your Cherrywood Veterans Club held its monthly meeting. At that meeting we discussed the upcoming golf tournament; Veterans Appreciation Day and the very enjoyable and informative boat trip. In addition, your Veterans Club voted to donate $250 to help provide household items for two veterans who are leaving Ritz House to start their new lives. Please see CHERRYWOOD, Page 14 Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, June 19, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. We will have a guest speaker from the Ocala Wildlife Sanctuary (OWLS) so please try to attend. OWLS is a beautiful oasis in the middle of Ocala, where sick, injured or abandoned animals (primarily birds) are nursed back to health and released into the wild. Others with severe injuries have a permanent home there where they are lovingly cared for.

Thank you all for your generosity.Theos Graduation from Patriot Service Dogs ProgramThere have been many graduation ceremonies of all kinds this past month or so, but the one closest to our heart was held on May 30 at Lowell Correctional Institution. On that day, Theo the standard poodle graduated from the program and will soon be on his way to his wounded warrior. Theo is so special to us because Next SPCA meeting is Thursday, June 19 A picture of Theos graduation. Paws and Claws Maria Devine our own vice president, Judy Singer, has been his puppy raiser for the past two years. The ceremony began with a slideshow of Theo from a small puppy to the beautiful dog he is today. That elicited a lot of awwws from the crowd while Theo preened shamelessly. The bulk of the Patriot Service Dogs training is provided by the women inmates at Lowell and each dog has a dedicated handler. One by one each handler showed us the types of commands they teach by the dogs age. Puppies from 2 to 6 months receive light training with basic commands like down and sit done in repetition called puppy push-ups. At 6 to 9 months, the difficulty increases as the dogs are taught such things as to quietly lie under a table. At 9 to12 months they begin training with speak, retrieve and hold commands. By 18 months theyre learning advanced retrieve and give commands, as well as how to turn a light switch on and off and how to brace a vet with limited strength. At two years of age, Theo knows 74 commands. Thats quite an accomplishment. Next, Theo and his handler Cassie stood front and center. Through tears of joy and sadness, she described Theo as being fearful when he was younger and needing extra TLC. He was the hardest dog to train, but learned the most. He has a permanent place in my heart. Then she explained how the Patriot Service Dogs Program helped her to regain her self worth and set goals for her future. She also thanked Judy, his puppy raiser, for his progress.

Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com More than 100 golfers gathered at Ocala Palms on Saturday, June 7 to play in the first Veterans Club Golf Tournament. You would think that checking in that many people would be a problem but thanks to the efficiency of volunteers like Sarah Blair; Annie Bardack; Marti Duesel; Eve Houghtaling and others; all the players were not only registered and welcomed but had ample time to enjoy a featured pancake breakfast. Once the meal was over everyone hit the course for 18 holes of golf on the beautiful well groomed links of Ocala Palms Golf Resort. A courtesy cart made the rounds with drinks to keep the golfers hydrated and cool in the warm summer sun. A refreshing breeze wafting through the sunny skies was an added plus. When the golfing was completed everyone came to the clubhouse to enjoy the 19th hole and take part in the silent auction while waiting for lunch. A short time later, Carol, who manages Blancas Restaurant, was calling everyone to the buffet line. Roast Turkey and Egg Plant Parmesan was served up hot and succulent to the hungry throng. In the comfortable and relaxing atmosphere of Blancas; all enjoyed a delicious meal and casual conversation. Prizes were awarded for different flights; closest to the pin; 50/50 and more. At least a third of the golfers were prize winners of some sort and according to the participants; everyone was a winner on this day. Congratulations to Veterans Club President Bill Mahar and Treasurer Richard Hurley who headed up the leadership for this special fund raising event. They were assisted by Vice President Bill Spangenberg; Sgt at Arms Marty Duesel and a host of volunteers of volunteers that included; Janice and Ken McLeod; Ida Mahar; Mary Spangenberg; Ruth Hurley; and of course Holly Bragdon who took the photos. This entire event would not have been possible without the help of the Ocala Palms Golf Resort staff including H.L. Roberts and golf pro Barry Fies. We also greatly appreciate Cherrywood Property Managements Chris and Mario Zacco; and our patron, Norman for their assistance; encouragement and genGolf event put on by Veterans Club was a success Cherrywood John Everlove Some of the participants in the golf tournament. erous support. Immediately following the luncheon, President Mahar thanked everyone for their participation and announced that there would be a second annual golf tournament next year. This was met with approval and applause by all of the players. Your Veterans Club supports Patriot Dogs; Fisher House; Wounded Warriors; Ritz House and many other worthy charities within Marion County and the State of Florida. We are grateful for the support of all who helped make this charity event a rousing success. Veterans Club meetingLast Thursday at 2 in the afternoon your Cherrywood Veterans Club held its monthly meeting. At that meeting we discussed the upcoming golf tournament; Veterans Appreciation Day and the very enjoyable and informative boat trip. In addition, your Veterans Club voted to donate $250 to help provide household items for two veterans who are leaving Ritz House to start their new lives. Please see CHERRYWOOD, Page 14 Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, June 19, at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Bank of the Ozarks. We will have a guest speaker from the Ocala Wildlife Sanctuary (OWLS) so please try to attend. OWLS is a beautiful oasis in the middle of Ocala, where sick, injured or abandoned animals (primarily birds) are nursed back to health and released into the wild. Others with severe injuries have a permanent home there where they are lovingly cared for. Please call our special hotline number at 352-3620985 for more information about our meeting or to contact us for any reason. The SPCA is low on dog food for the Pets on Wheels program. This program provides dog and cat food for people with pets who receive Meals on Wheels. Kibble can be dropped off in the SPCA bin at Winn Dixie in Friendship Center. You can also call us and well arrange an alternate pick up or drop off. Please note that we dont accept any food or treats made in China, so please check before donating. Thank you all for your generosity.Theos Graduation from Patriot Service Dogs ProgramThere have been many graduation ceremonies of all kinds this past month or so, but the one closest to our heart was held on May 30 at Lowell Correctional Institution. On that day, Theo the standard poodle graduated from the program and will soon be on his way to his wounded warrior. Theo is so special to us because Next SPCA meeting is Thursday, June 19 A picture of Theos graduation. Paws and Claws Maria Devine our own vice president, Judy Singer, has been his puppy raiser for the past two years. The ceremony began with a slideshow of Theo from a small puppy to the beautiful dog he is today. That elicited a lot of awwws from the crowd while Theo preened shamelessly. The bulk of the Patriot Service Dogs training is provided by the women inmates at Lowell and each dog has a dedicated handler. One by one each handler showed us the types of commands they teach by the dogs age. Puppies from 2 to 6 months receive light training with basic commands like down and sit done in repetition called puppy push-ups. At 6 to 9 months, the difficulty increases as the dogs are taught such things as to quietly lie under a table. At 9 to12 months they begin training with speak, retrieve and hold commands. By 18 months theyre learning advanced retrieve and give commands, as well as how to turn a light switch on and off and how to brace a vet with limited strength. At two years of age, Theo knows 74 commands. Thats quite an accomplishment. Next, Theo and his handler Cassie stood front and center. Through tears of joy and sadness, she described Theo as being fearful when he was younger and needing extra TLC. He was the hardest dog to train, but learned the most.

The Bergdahl matterYour editorial view of June 6 is a good prediction that the Sgt. Bergdahl matter is unlikely to go away in the near future. Its a very political year. My immediate guess was that someone with imagination on the White House staff suggested that repatriating Sgt. Bergdahl could be used as backdoor way to gradually close the prison at Guantanamo without any help from Congress. Mr. Obama saw Sgt. Bergdahl and his family as his kind of people dedicated to saving the world from American imperialism. The President wants to be remembered not only for fulfilling his campaign promise to close Guantanamo, but also for bringing peace to the world by persistent do-goodiness. Jim Flynn OcalaBenghaziIn response to the previous letter writer regarding Benghazi. What was written is factually incorrect on each of the points he was trying to make. The writer claims Hillary Clinton accepted responsibility for the death of four Americans who died in Benghazi. Does he consider her saying, Im responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts the same as taking responsibility for what happened in Benghazi? He claims Mrs. Clinton was raked over the coals (by the Republicans). Mrs. Clinton was actually the one who raised her voice when she said, What difference does it make? This was after she couldnt or wouldnt provide an answer as to why Susan Rice, who is not a State Department employee, was the one delivering the false narrative blaming a video. He stated the reason for lack of additional security was due to budget cuts by the Republicans. Another false assertion. During an October 10, 2012 hearing, Charlene Lamb, the State Department official who fielded security requests from the Libya U.S. diplomatic officials had said that money wasnt the reason for the slim security in Libya. She claimed they wanted to keep the security presence in Benghazi artificially low. Another claim that there were hundreds killed in previous Embassy attacks under Bush was inaccurate. During Bushs tenure, sadly, 60 Americans lost their lives in Embassy attacks. He stated the Democrats didnt investigate these attacks, leaving the reader to draw their own conclusion as to why they didnt. The real reason they didnt need to investigate was because President Bush was coming forth with the truth. He said they were terrorist attacks from the very beginning. When Hillary and the Obama administration continued to promote the lie about the video being the cause, it made it necessary to dig further to find the truth. Had they stated the truth immediately, then perhaps this incident would be behind us. Finally, the writer accused the Republicans of politicizing the tragedy, when the truth is, the Obama administration were the ones who politicized it, because a terrorist attack on Obamas watch being so close to the presidential election would be hard to overcome. A recently released email on the Benghazi terror attack shows a senior White House adviser, Ben Rhodes, played a direct and pivotal role in prepping former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice where she blamed an internet video for the attack. His letter was an attempt to assign blame to the Republicans, even though that had nothing to do with the Benghazi attack; while showing no desire to know whether or not the Obama Administration was being less than truthful to the American people. Bob Waas OcalaSergeant Bergdahl Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl has been accused of desertion. There must be a thorough investigation with whatever consequences follow that investigation. The Army is capable of conducting this investigation and any subsequent proceedings internally without interference from politicians, the news media or fickle popular opinion. A more compassionate approach would let the soldier come home and recover from his ordeal before subjecting him to the political fires.

Ed Morgan OTOWFriday, June 13, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Things that usually come easily and quickly for the Aries Lamb might need more of your time and attention during the next several days. Try to be patient as you work things out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A changing situation can create some complications. But if you apply that sensible Bovine mind to what seems to be a hopeless tangle of confusion, youll soon sort things out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new look for your surroundings is fun. Expect to hear mostly positive comments on your efforts, as well as some well-intended suggestions you might want to note. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Maybe youd rather do anything else than what youre stuck with right now. But if you stop complaining, you might see how this could lead to something with real potential. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Even a proud Leo ultimately recovers from hurt feelings. However, a damaged relationship might never heal unless youre willing to spend more time and effort trying to work things out. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) There are lots of changes on the horizon, so be prepared to make some adjustments in your usually fine-tuned life. One change might impact a personal decision youve been putting off. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Being the dependable person you are could work in your favor for a project that requires both skill and accountability. But check this out carefully. There could be a hidden downside. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A temperamental outburst about a mishandled project causes some fallout. Be sure to couple an apology with an explanation. A new opportunity beckons by weeks end. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Changing horses midstream is usually unwise but sometimes necessary. Examine your options before making a decision. A colleague has good advice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) While much of your time is involved with business matters, funtime opportunities open up by weeks end. Enjoy yourself, but be careful that you dont overspend. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A revelation opens your eyes to what is really going on in the workplace. What you learn could make a difference in your career path. Be alert for more news. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Not wanting to make waves might be the safest way to deal with a difficult situation. But no substantive changes can be made unless you share your assessments with others.

Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com terior harm, it was not there. Very seldom did my father paddle me when he was really angry. There was one case when that happened, and this was it. I will not repeat the lecture that he gave at that time, but I will say that it had a lasting impression upon my posterior. At that time, I wished he had been a man of fewer words. I know times have changed, but I am not sure they have changed for the better. There was a time when parents were in charge of children and responsible for the discipline. Sadly, that day is far gone. The only thing I would say is, are we better off today than we were back then? The Bible admonishes us, And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Discipline, not abuse, is drastically needed among our children today. My father would put it this way, lack of discipline is a form of abuse.Rev. James L.

My father was a rather reserved person. He did not have much to say except when he was talking about his hunting or fishing adventures, and to hear from him, it was always an adventure. When he got started on one of his stories, you better just sit back and forget about everything else. Outside of that, he was rather quiet and reserved and did not have much to say. I always liked that about him for a variety of reasons. I think I take after him in that regard. I just do not have time to hear somebody bloviate on something I am not interested in. For one, my father had no time at all for politics. I am not sure if he was a Republican or Democrat, but I knew he voted every election. Son, he often said, you dont have to take sides one way or the other. When Im with a Democrat, I talk Democrat and when Im with a Republican, I talk Republican. The only thing that matters is what I do when I get in that voting booth. This attitude of his, since Fathers Day is coming up, was something that made a deep impression upon me. Following his counsel has kept me out of quite a few battles throughout the years, especially when I got married. I can never remember my father arguing with my mother. Now, my mother argued with my father, but he never reciprocated. If you want a happy home, he once advised, make sure everybody in the home was happy particularly the one you married. That has helped me through many sticky situations for which I am eternally grateful. Another bit of advice he gave me was simply that you do not have to fight every battle. Only fight those battles, he said with a sly smirk on his face, that you know you can win. I mentioned that he was rather reserved in his speaking, but there was one area where he was profusely proactive. That was in the area of discipline, especially directed toward me. My father was not much different from any of the fathers during that time and they all believed in the biblical admonition, Spare the rod and spoil the child. These fathers were united in making sure none of their children would be spoiled. One rule we had in the house that I did not fully agree with was, if you got a spanking in school (and in those days we got spankings in school) you got a spanking at home. Talk about double dipping! The assumption was that the teacher was right and that the one receiving the spanking was wrong. Back then, 99.9 percent of the time that was true. The spanker was in charge, the spankee took it like a man and you know where. I spent 12 years in the public education system and during that time, my teacher was never wrong. I will not divulge how many times I was wrong, that is between me and the area I sit on. I clearly remember that my teachers back then had what was called the Hickory stick. And boy did those teachers know how to use that Hickory stick and where it would do the most good. My father did not have a Hickory stick as such. Hanging on the wall in the kitchen was an old wooden paddle engraved with, I need thee every hour. I am surprised that that one wooden paddle lasted during my entire childhood. I made one mistake during those childhood days. I was going through a period where the paddle and my bottom were close friends. I was getting a little weary of such friendship and decided I would do something about it. My father had gone to work early that day, as I remember it now, and I was going out the door to go to school when a thought danced in my head. I would take that paddle and dispose of it so that it could no longer be attached to my person. With the advantage of 20/20 hindsight, it was not a perfect plan. I had forgotten about that and two days later, I got into some trouble. It was the kind of trouble that could be resolved only by that wooden paddle. My father went to get the paddle and to his chagrin, and my pos-Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The switch on my behind saved time Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 RIVERS By Michael Farris Smith Although Mississippi native Michael Farris Smith was not directly hurt by Hurricane Katrina, he couldnt get the storms devastation to his state out of his mind. He began imagining a storm of Katrinas intensity occurring one month later on the southern Gulf Coast and then another one and another one following until the whole area was almost uninhabitable. And thats the premise of Rivers. Protagonist Cohen says early in the novel that he had forgotten the last day that it hadnt rained, when the sunshine glistened across the drenched land. The government, unable to cope with the catastrophe declares a Line, a geographical boundary drawn 90 miles north of the coastline from the Texas-Louisiana border across the Mississippi coast to Alabama. Those who remained below the Line were on their own. Cohen is one of them. In the mad scramble of evacuation on the highway leading north, his young wife Elisa is killed and with her their unborn child. Now he find it impossible to abandon her grave, his family homestead, and the artifacts if their short marriage. With the help of long-time friend Charlie, who lives above the Line but travels south regularly with inflated-priced necessities, Cohen is kept supplied with gas for his Jeep, whiskey, cigarettes, and canned goods. Normally suspicious and on guard, Cohen twice refuses to stop for a young hitch-hiking couple but passing them a third time he is moved by the girl who seems injured. Although he keeps his pistol aimed at the boy, the pair manages to overpower him, steal his Jeep, and leave him for dead. Cohen revives and vows vengeance. He finds them in a commune held prisoner by a snake-handling, selfordained preacher named Aggie who is Evil incarnate. Aggie beguiles starving couples and single women to join his commune where he murders the men and impregnates the women to fulfill his nefarious plan to repopulate the area. He spares two young brothers who beg Cohen to help them. Thus, heroism is thrust upon this rugged loner. His mind kept remembering Katrina devastation Bookmark Pat Wellington Fathers Day is June 15.

I am not sure what I will write about unless some residents send me some news. Some of the clubs that still play through the summer are Bingo, Euchre, Mah Jongg, Ladies Poker, Billiards Water exercise and Horseshoe Pitching. Water exercise is in full swing. Water is a little nippy when you first get in but warms up soon. The SCN Craft club has closed shop until the fall. Its a great place to socialize and create new things. Call Marlene Dorner for the fall schedule.Would you believe?Would you believe what you can do for restless legs or Charlie horses? Put two small bars of soap (hotel size) between your sheets at the foot of your bed. Honest it works! Another tip: If you catch a nasty cold and dont want your partner to catch it, cut an onion in half and put each half in a small container (skin side up) in a inch of water and put on each nightstand. It is supposed to remove most of the germs in the air. I havent tried this one yet. My husband Jim loves onions so am afraid he would eat them. But seriously my friend has tried it and she says it works. Those are my little tips for the day. The get well greetings keep coming for my husband Jim.

SCNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 13, 2014 BY JOHN EVERLOVE Special to the CitizenOne day my mom forgot my name and we laughed; a short time later, she forgot her own name and all laughter ceased. Remembering back to that time, some days were normal; most were not and they never got better. In front of my eyes, my mother was taken from me. Her dignity; intelligence; sense of humor; personality and all of her memories were disappearing. I now know that the fear I was facing at that time was nothing compared to the terror she was going through. Alzheimers disease is a cruel thief who takes not just our mere precious possessions but our precious loved ones. Comedians make jokes about Old timers disease but anyone who has had to deal with the cruel malady of Alzheimers knows there is nothing funny about it. A friend of mine has a mom who is going through this agonizing trial and he wanted me to thank the angels who are helping to care for her. For those who have not experienced a loved one with this disease let me try to share a little insight. A person whom you have known you all your life; who cared for you; nursed you and held you; loved and cherished you; fed you; laughed in happy times and wept in sad times with you; is slowly taken away. That same person who shared so much now doesnt know you; some times yells at you; says mean and hateful things; throws tantrums or sits silently in a corner. These are just a few of the complex and frightening symptoms of Alzheimers. While you are looking into the eyes of a person you once loved and knew so well; you sense that their inner self is gone. Some would call it the soul; others something else but the once familiar face and body is now occupied by some stranger. Most of us are not equipped to handle a person with this disease. We have neither the knowledge; skills or emotional fortitude to deal with loved ones as they display bizarre and confusing behaviors. Thus, most of us must rely on care givers; usually in an assisted living facility. Through some miracle, by their nature and their calling these care givers are able to not only cope with these patients; but to understand and comfort them. While we cannot mention the individual facility my friends mom is in or even use her name; for his sake and for all of you who have a loved some one with Alzheimers; let me thank some very special people. They represent all the nurses; nurses aides; care givers and the angels that are in the trenches day in and day out working with some of the most difficult patients in the world. First there are Pam and Laura; Latoya and Kendra. They share the responsibilities with Shaquita; Brittany; Shantille; Velvet and Veronica. Head nurse Joseph leads this team as they provide special care and comfort to their patients. In the kitchen Chef Paula does an outstanding job preparing taste tempting nourishment for the patients. Together they comprise a group of exceptional individuals with exceptional talents and exceptional skills. If we did not have people like these the world would be a different place for not only those we love but for ourselves. These outstanding persons deserve our thanks; have earned our respect and warmed our hearts. Across this great country of ours, there are thousands of people like the ones I just named who are giving marvelous care to some very difficult people. We want them to know that their work is truly and gratefully appreciated. The things that most people can not do; they do on a daily basis; providing care and hope; kindness and cleanliness; compassion and understanding to those who need it most. Thank you to all of the care givers; you truly are angels of mercy. For a special perspective read the poem An Alzheimers Request by Owen Darnell; its excellent. John Everlove is the Cherrywood columnist for the South Marion Citizen. Last weekend, I did something I will probably never be able to do in my lifetime in Ocala. I had to drive to Dunedin in Pinellas County to do it. I went to see some Minor League Baseball. The occasion was the St. Lucie Mets, the Class A affiliate of my Major League team, playing the Dunedin Blue Jays. Ive seen reports that the Toronto Blue Jays are going to leave Dunedin. Its easy to see why. The stadium is in the middle of a residential area, surrounded by either houses or schools. Parking is atrocious. I got there the first night about a half hour before the game, and the lot was nearly full. But when I got inside, there were only about 400 people there. I just cant picture what its like when 4,000 people gather for a Major League Spring Training game. As I sat there I thought, Heck, we could probably attract this minor league team to Ocala. When they see pictures of our nice new stadium and all that parking and the easy access, why, theyll Then somebody got a hit or something and brought an end to my pipe dream. But eventually I went back to my dream. Why, Ocala is listed as having a population of 56,000 or so, while Dunedin has about 35,000. Thats just the city. The Blue Jays have to share interest with another Minor League team, the Clearwater affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, which is about 15 miles down U.S. Highway 19. Also in their county is the Tampa Bay Rays, a Major League team that happened to be playing the Seattle Mariners when the Blue Jays were home last weekend, and was holding a continuing tribute to the recently deceased Don Zimmer. On Saturday, the Blue Jays had to compete with the televising of another futile Triple Crown effort. And just across the bay, about a half hour away, is the home of the Tampa Yankees, you know, the team whose executives had Ocala Yankees hats and shirts printed up, only to be shot down. In Ocala, they would be the only pro baseball game in town. Presumably, their games would be on the radio, as they are in Dunedin. There would be promotions almost every night Friday was beer and bacon night, followed by fireworks. Not that many people were drinking, because there were a lot of kids there for the fireworks, but they gave away prizes for the best bacon, and Saturday they gave away Bobbleheads of the Blue Jays mascot, DJ. I thought of getting one and bringing it home to my cat (it was, of course, a blue jay bird), but I passed and left it for someone who really wanted it. There was a limited supply. It was pretty good baseball. Despite the comments of some who said this league was equivalent to college ball as they argued against a new stadium, the Florida State League is one of two of the highest Class A leagues in the country, and there are no rookies on the Mets team. One down side was that one of the top Mets prospects, Brandon Nimmo, a centerfielder, was struck in the forearm or hand by a pitch on Friday, left the game and didnt play on Saturday. I havent been able to find out how he is. The Mets dont need any more people on the disabled list. Another down side was the traffic. Pinellas County never met an intersection that it didnt like putting a red light in front of. And synchronized lights? Forget it. Construction is perpetual, My next trip will come late in July when the Mets are in Daytona Beach against the Daytona Cubs. I plan on being there with my Mets hat on, and Ill probably do some more dreaming. Just wake me up when someone gets a hit.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Politicians arent the only ones who do it, but theyre masters of the art: if a topic they dont want to discuss comes up, theyll make a big ruckus about something else to distract attention. It happens every year in Florida right after the state legislative session ends. Florida TaxWatch, the independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit taxpayer research and government watchdog, issues its Budget Turkey Report. This year it lists about $120 million in appropriations. Reading the report, youll find lots of interesting, worthwhile-sounding projects, and might at first wonder why Florida TaxWatch calls them turkeys. Thats exactly what our legislators want you to do. But the Budget Turkey Report has nothing to do with the projects themselves; its solely about the process by which those projects made it into the budget. The process, not the project. TaxWatch defines budget turkeys as individual lineitems that are appropriated without being subject to a thoughtful and thorough budget process. They violate sound budgeting practices in at least one of these ways: They circumvent the established review and selection process, or go through the process but are funded ahead of higher-priority projects defined by the selection process. They are inserted in the budget during conference committee meetings which means they did not appear in either the final Senate or House budgets. They are appropriations from inappropriate trust funds, duplicative appropriations, or appropriations contingent on legislation that did not pass. When this years Budget Turkey Report was issued, Florida Senate president Don Gaetz jumped to the attack in strong, ugly terms. He is quoted as saying: Florida TaxWatch has again shown that it is possible to be absent all year long from any engagement in the budget process, do no research into the merits of any appropriations, utter not one word of testimony on any proposal or alternative and still convince well-meaning people to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep a well-paid staff employed to absolutely no positive effect other than to get mentioned in one news cycle. Nice job, Sen. Gaetz, of making a big ruckus about something else to distract attention. What he does not want is taxpayers paying attention to legislators stuffing into the state budget a variety of items that did not get adequate public review or legislative scrutiny, and thus skirting the states constitutional checks and balances. No wonder Gaetz and others worked so hard to misdirect public attention. His statement that TaxWatch was absent all year long also is wildly incorrect. As the report details, Florida TaxWatch staff attended every appropriations subcommittee meeting, every appropriations meeting, and each budget conference meeting of the 2014 Florida Legislature. Most of the conference committee meetings lasted 20 minutes or less and included no questions or debate. This lack of transparency is the focus of the Budget Turkey Report. If this years projects had been passed after going through the proper budget process, they wouldnt have been on the Turkey list. Kudos to Florida TaxWatch for its persistence in tracking and publicizing legislative shenanigans. Now its our turn hold elected officials accountable, and demand that budget discussions and decisions be made in the Florida sunshine.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Stuffing the turkeys into the budget Doing something I cant do in Ocala Complex, frightening symptoms of Alzheimers READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Dear Readers, A lot of folks believe Friday 13th is a bad luck day. This 13th I will be celebrating my two years survival of the big C so I will welcome it as I do all the days, happy to be here in beautiful Oak Run. Writing this column has brought me so many new friends and tomorrow is Donut-Drop In at the Orchid Club, so I hope to meet some of the new residents. I attended the Friends of the Library meeting and I could not but help wonder why most of the residents were not there as their goodies were wonderful. We use to say the ladies at a church in the town I came from had the best bazaars because of the desserts but the Library ladies are as good or better.

The great revolution in our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. William James Even at advanced ages, there are choices. People can change the way they think, act, and are. The problem arises when people think they cannot. Too many are fearful of change. What will those in my life think? Will they still like me and continue being in my life. We cannot please everyone and shouldnt even try. Lets live what remains of our lives being ourselves changing or not as we see fit.Circle Square lineupThe heat is on this summer as we present an abundance of electrifying and diverse entertainment at the Circle Square Cultural Center.

Join your friends and neighbors. A classroom is a great summer destination!The Butler Movie SeriesOn June 5 at 1 p.m., My Man Godfrey was shown at Live Oak Hall. Before showing this movie, Dr. Pat Wellington told the audience a little about it and the actors. The movie opens with a scavenger hunt by rich people during the depression of the 1930s. Scatterbrained socialite, Carol Lombard, hires a vagrant as a butler. William Powell takes that part. Pat told us that in real life the two were married for a short time. He was also engaged to Jean Harlow who died at the age of 23. It was an interesting experience seeing how the rich lived, dressed, and even spoke in the 1930s. The actors then didnt dress or talk as they do now. Watching this black and white film shows how times, people, and the movie industry has changed.

the Marine Corps Parris Island trip on Oct 22-24, you need to spread the word. If we do not get more travelers we will be forced to cancel the trip, so get some of your friends and family to join you. We have to give the Marine Corps the go ahead for us being there by July 1. Remind them that this is a unique opportunity to see key steps in the process of training new Marine Corps recruits plus you get to watch the grand graduation ceremonies. While there we will be eating meals in the mess hall just like the recruits and according to Marine veterans this is great food. We are staying at Comfort Inn and Suites near the base.

We are delighted to have Sue Connor become a new member of our golf league. Welcome, Sue!Oak Run LibraryOur librarian, Gabriella, in the Oak Run Library, has started a new section on top of the black bookcase called Oldies but Goodies. These are books that you may have promised yourself to read or reread and never got around to it. They will be highlighted in the paper and rotated around periodically. One of the first books is Margaret Mitchells Gone With the Wind. This is an ageless story of the Civil War, love, and Reconstruction. Gone With The Wind was popular with American readers from the onset and was the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published (1936) and again in 1937. As of 2014, a Harris poll found it to be the second favorite book by American readers, just behind the Bible. Another book published in 2009 is Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. In the opening pages of Jamie Fords stunning debut novel, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside a hotel, once the gateway to Seattles Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. The narrative shuttles between 1986 and the 1940s in a story that chronicles the losses of old age and the bewilderment of youth. Enjoy these two books and the others on the Oldies but Goodies shelf.Oak Run Performing Arts Company (PACOR)After a record attendance at the May meeting of the Performing Arts Company of Oak Run, high turnout was anticipated to continue at the meeting this past Monday, June 9. At this meeting the scripts for those interested in auditioning for Hello Dolly! were to be handed out. There is still time to express your interest in an on-stage role. Scripts may be obtained through the Director, Dick Caza at 352-274-9574. The monthly Oak Run newsletter had a mistake regarding audition dates. There will not be auditions on Monday, June 23. The correct dates and times are: Tuesday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Thursday, June 26, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 28, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., all at the Palm Grove Auditorium.EDITORS NOTE: Because of late technical issues on Thursday, some portions of this column had to be omitted. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. Fathers Day is Sunday. Its a time to reflect on how your father shaped your life, to appreciate his wisdom and to (hopefully) enjoy his company. Its also a time to enjoy some humor about fathers.The bossOne evening, while sitting around the dinner table, a little girl looked up and asked her father, Daddy, youre the boss, right? Her father was very pleased by this and replied, Yes. Then, the little girl continued, Thats because mommy put you in charge, right?Pitch in, FatherA clergyman on a walk saw a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off. You look hot, my son, said the cleric, why dont you rest a moment, and Ill give you a hand. No thanks, said the young man, my father wouldnt like it. Dont be silly, the minister said. Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water. Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and Ill give him a piece of my mind! Well, replied the young farmer, hes under the load of hay.Clear?A friend is a new father of a little girl named Claire. He told me that hes looking forward to the day when she requires discipline. He says when she misbehaves he may have to clarify the rules for her. Hell say, Clarify have to tell you one more time, youll be sorry.Pop cornLife was a lot simpler when what we honored was father rather than all major credit cards. There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced. When a boy came home from school with a sofa slung across his back and an armchair under his arm, his dad said I told you not to take suites from strangers. Adam had a lot of trouble buying his father a Fathers Day gift. What can you buy somebody whos everything? She got her good looks from her father. Hes a plastic surgeon. Johns father gave him a really cheap dictionary for his birthday. John couldnt find the words to thank him. A father was helping his son with his homework. The father asked, What is the Gross National Product? The boy replied Spinach?Like Father, Like SonA husband reading a newspaper said to his wife, You know, honey, I think there might be some real merit to what this article says. The intelligence of a father often proves a stumbling block to the son. Well, thank heaven, said the wife. At least our James has nothing standing in his way.Wrap upA husband and wife were in the kitchen one Sunday morning. The husband was looking through the many pages of the paper. Honey, have you seen the sports section? the husband asked. Yes, the wife replied. I wrapped the garbage in it and threw it out. But I hadnt seen it yet! the husband protested. You didnt miss much, the wife came back. Just some egg shells, coffee grinds and a few orange peels.Mothers adviceThe bride, upon her engagement, went to her mother and said, Ive found a man just like father! Her mother replied, So what do you want from me, sympathy?Dads revengeMartin had just received his brand new drivers license. The family trooped out to the driveway, and climbed in the car, where he was going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately headed for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver. Ill bet youre back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive, said the beaming boy to his father. Nope, dad replied, Im gonna sit here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just like youve been doing all these years. We may have kicked when our kids were going through those difficult teen years. As they matured and became successful, we have nothing to kick about. Friday, June 13, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Having some fun at dads expense Pun Alley Dick Frank Chamber programThe Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership (CEP) has launched a new program aimed at serving entrepreneurs. Mini Micro Loans Last year the CEP began an SBA Microloan program, offering up to $50,000 to new or existing small businesses. Now, business seeking less than $3,500 with applicant credit scores of 720 or above, will be required to submit less paperwork and will experience overall faster turn-around times. Rather than putting smaller purchases for working capital, inventory, equipment and supplies on a credit card, area entrepreneurs can now utilize CEPs Mini Micro loans as a financing alternative.

Friday, June 13 Friday Forum on death penaltyShould the death penalty still have a role in modern society? This is the issue to be debated by Bill Gladson special prosecution supervisor in Floridas Fifth Judicial Circuit, and Bruce Seaman, Presbyterian minister and coordinator of Awake Marion, a coalition of local progressives when the Friday Forum of Marion County next meets at 11:30 a.m. June 13 at Buffet City, State Road 200 at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Brad Rogers, editorial page director of the Ocala Star Banner, will moderate. Roughly 400 of the nations 3,000 inmates on death row await their fate about an hour north of Ocala, several of them from Marion County. How did they get there? According to a Gallup Poll, 60 percent of Americans support the death penalty although the numbers are declining. Since state and local laws generally move in concert with public opinion does our legal system seek justice or does it merely reflect the will of the people? Are some crimes considered so heinous that the perpetrators are deemed beyond the pale of human compassion? What role do our moral leaders play in affecting our views? Our politicians? The media? The Friday Forum, which meets monthly on the second Friday of each month, is a nonpartisan group open to all which seeks to develop civil community dialogue about the important issues of the day. The luncheon costs $10 payable directly to Buffet City. For further information please email FridayForumofMarionCounty@gmail.com or telephone Delphine Herbert (352-873-9970) or Jan Lentz (352-425-6219).

BRIEFS Volunteer readers soughtDo you like to read aloud to children? Marion County Public Library System invites you to share the joy of books and reading by becoming a volunteer reader for the Library Express childrens program. Through July 14, interested adults are encouraged to submit a volunteer application to the public library for the Library Express program. Volunteer applications may be obtained online by visiting the librarys website at http://library.marioncountyfl.org or any of the eight public library locations in Marion County. All prospective volunteers must attend training and orientation, be able to commit to the program schedule and pass a background check prior to volunteering. Reading to children helps them develop a love of books and learning, as well as sparks their creativity and imagination. Library Express volunteers provide story time sessions once per month from September-May at various Head Start classroom locations throughout the county. Volunteers will receive a thorough training and orientation on how to provide story time sessions to children, as well as receive all reading materials required for the volunteer assignment.

The county is being considered as an ideal location to site a 120bed nursing home funded through the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs (FDVA) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Five other Florida counties are also in the running.

Event attendees will be able to enjoy live music and light refreshments, and show their patriotic spirit. The event will take place on the proposed site in the northeast corner of Southwest 80th Street and Southwest 80th Avenue, Ocala (On Top of the World). Our veterans have made the greatest sacrifices to guarantee our freedoms today, said Marion County Commission Chairman Carl Zalak. Marion County wishes to continue being a part of their hope for a better tomorrow by becoming the home of the new state veterans nursing home. Those wishing to learn more about the event and why Marion County is the ideal location for the state veterans nursing home may visit www.marioncountyfl.org/VAhome or call 352-438-2300. 28~ Friday, June 13, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Rally planned to support vets nursing home These Marion County Fire Rescue photos show hazmat personnel working at the County Judicial Center downtown as they determine whether there is a threat from white powder received there.

It is deliberate, planned, and created to enhance teacher leadership and let them know how important their work is in the achievement of our students. I lead faculty wide book studies designed to encourage professional conversations on learning. As we have focused on student learning, student achievement has increased. In support of her nomination, a student wrote, She has provided us (the students) with the best of the best teachers, which is greatly appreciated to know that I am getting the best education possibleAny problem or difficult situation I have been faced with, she has always had an advantageous solution. No matter how busy she might be, she always has time to talk to any student who needs herLast but not least, she has provided a welcoming learning environment, giving every student at West Port an equal opportunity to be successful. FASA Executive Director Juhan Mixon, Ed.D. stated, Mrs. Ellspermann is a great leader that stays at the forefront of educational standards so she can lead her staff and students to success. She leads by example and shares her knowledge with aspiring administrators across the state. Marion County and Florida are lucky to have Jayne leading the way!

Marion County Fire Rescue worked with Ocala Fire Rescue and cooperated with the Ocala Police Department and the Marion County Sheriffs Office regarding suspicious envelopes received at Lake Weir High School, the Marion County Judicial Center, Forest High School, West Port High School, Hillcrest School, the Ocala Star Banner, the Elks Lodge, Belleview High School and Blessed Trinity complex. MCFRs Shady Station 16 Hazmat Team responded to the suspicious package call at Lake Weir High School at 11:04 a.m. The crew used specialized monitors to rule out biological, explosive, chemical and radiological agents and determined the substance inside the green envelope to be an artificial sweetener. One school employee was evaluated, but did not require treatment for symptoms related to hazardous materials exposure. Afterward, MCFRs Hazmat crew responded to the Marion County Courthouse, which had been secured by Ocala Fire Rescue and the Ocala Police Department. There they repeated the process and determined the suspicious substance to be artificial sweetener as well. Six courthouse employees who were in the vicinity of the opened envelope were quarantined and, upon MCFRs arrival, evaluated. No one was injured or treated for symptoms related to hazardous materials exposure. Next, MCFRs Hazmat crew and law enforcement responded to the Ocala Star Banner, which evacuated employees for their safety. This envelope contained artificial sweetener as well.
