Site Selection Committee members listened as county commissioners, legislative leaders and citizens spoke on the many reasons why Marion County is the ideal location for the new home expected to serve veterans from around the state. The event was fully hosted through community donations. More photos on www.smcitizen.com. The crowd and panel members listen to a presentation. Bill Wood signs in. A Southwest Ocala man faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill after a dirt bike incident in which he allegedly threatened a woman and her children. According to the arrest affidavit, Daniel Ray Lincoln, 19, of Southwest 101st Place Road, allegedly road his dirt bike at a high rate of speed at the woman and four children she had with her on an unspecified road. The children got into the womans golf cart and moved it in an attempt to allow the bike to pass. However, according to the report, Lincoln rode his bike past them, missing them by inches, Dirt bike incident results in arrest Bryant re-elected BY JIM CLARK EditorCounty Commissioner Kathy Bryant can breathe a little easier as the campaign season approaches. Bryant was the only qualifier for County Commission District 2 and is therefore re-elected without opposition. Two Republicans withdrew early, and another failed to qualify last week. Qualifying ended at noon on Friday. On the Democratic side, the only announced candidate, Pamela Payton, also failed to qualify. In the District 4 race, incumbent Carl Zalak, the current chairman, drew opposition from former Commissioner Glen Fiorello. A write-in candidate, Chris Tarner, is eligible to be voted on in November, even though he wont be on the ballot, and that means that only Republicans can vote in the primary on Aug. 26. The winner will be the only one on the ballot in November. School Board races are all contested, all in the Aug. 26 primary. In District 3, incumbent Bobby James is being challenged by Jane Moerlie, Jim Touchdown and Ed Wilson. Active candidate James Hoyne did not qualify. In District 4, incumbent Angie Boynton is challenged by Chase Basinger, Jamie Bevan and Diane Schrier. In the two above races, if no one gets a total of 50 percent of the votes plus one vote, there will be a runoff between the top 2 in the November election. In District 5, incumbent Ron Crawford is being challenged by Kelly King. That race will be decided in August. School Board races are nonpartisan. In State House races, Charlie Stone and Dennis Baxley were re-elected without opposition. In the State Senate, Dorothy Hukill also had no opposition and was re-elected. PLEASESEEARREST, PAGE3 Paying a visit to Parris Island BY JOHN EVERLOVE Special to the CitizenObviously proud of the uniform she was wearing, she walked confidently onto the field in front of the nearly filled bleachers. Holding a microphone steadily in her hands she said in a clear; concise; resonant tone, Good Morning. A few people in the crowd responded meekly so she repeated her greeting more forcefully. Good morning! Everyone quickly got the message and answered in unison, Good morning. A slight smile briefly crossed her face and then she began to speak. I am Brigadier General Lori Reynolds, Commanding General; Marine Corp Recruit Training; Parris Island South Carolina. The occasion for our meeting was the flag raising ceremony at 8 a.m. in front of the Base Headquarters. As General Reynolds pointed out in her remarks; it is a ceremony that occurs daily on each Marine Base and at 170 embassies around the world. Pointing out 5 young Marines holding the large Garrison Flag, Gen. Reynolds reminded each of us in the audience that for over nearly 240 years the nation has trusted the Marines to make sure that our flag is defended and protected and that the ideals for which it stands are upheld and supported. Speaking on behalf of the Marines on this day; she assured the crowd; the Marines will always protect the flag and the Nation it represents. Everyone stood and the band sounded The Star Spangled Banner. With ease and grace Old Glory glided to the top of its staff. A slight breeze caught the red, white and blue material blowing it free from the lanyard and pole. The huge flag extended to its full length and breadth as if returning the salute of the several hundred people standing at attention beneath it. That was my introduction to Parris Island and I was impressed. Many years have passed since I wore the uniform of my country. With pride I saw my son Scott as he went off to Navy Basic Training at Great Lakes. On this day however, I would witness my grandson, Private First Class Corey Sharp, graduate from Marine Corp Basic Training. From the stands I viewed Corey and his fellow graduates march across the parade ground. Every one of them was in step; marching straight and tall; their eyes fixed and their postures exuding confidence. In speeches from the officers, we learned what the past three months of grueling training had been like for these young men and women. We gained an even greater appreciation for the commitment; endurance and patriotism that our loved one had displayed. Like his fellow recruits, a few short months ago my grandson had been a civilian; PLEASESEEPARRIS, PAGE3 Scott Everlove, son and Corey Everlove, grandson of r John Everlove 1918 SW 17th St. Ocala 352-401-0808 Savings based on original MSRP if purchased new.

The women rode home, where Lincoln allegedly rode past her house twice, making an obscene gesture and was yelling obscenities.When interviewed at his home, he allegedly told deputies he hated the woman because she kept calling law enforcement on him for riding on the roads. He said he had no intention of hitting her. Both the woman and a 9-year-old who was with her said the feared for their lives. Ray was released on $2,000 bond. ARRESTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 today through his perseverance; dedication and sacrifice; he was a Marine. Pass in review! the Adjutant ordered and the formation began to march past the reviewing stand and bleachers. Loud cheers greeted each platoon as they marched by and while the uniformed Marines who were watching maintained their military bearing; the civilians let lose with wild applause. Before long, the units were once again formed across the field from where I sat. The more than 300 graduating Marines stood silently at attention as did the cadre in and around the stands. Sensing the moment; the gallery fell silent. Even the youngsters ceased their fussing. It was then that the band struck up the familiar strains of the Marine Corp Hymn. For the brief moments that the music played; everyone stood a little straighter; everyone felt a bit prouder; and some like myself, got that familiar lump in the throat. Later as I hugged my grandson I felt more pride and love than my mere words could ever express. Fortunately, men know that about each other so we dont try; we just know. The world is a scary place; have no doubt about that. There are those who would take our way of life and our very lives if it werent for the men and women of our military. We are truly fortunate that we are defended by young men and women who are ready; willing and able to protect us. They are less than 1% of the population; those who wear the uniform of our nation. We owe them our loyalty; our support and undying gratitude. My prayer is for the safety of all our service personnel and that our leaders will have good judgment in using them. I thank you, my readers, for letting me share this experience with you.

In the top photo, from the left, are Glenn Powell, Delphine Herbert, Howard Moon and, seated, Geoffrey Stetson. In the right photo are Jan Lentz and Gail Colby.PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK When it comes to politics, I am as confused as the politicians themselves. I do not like to discuss politics because I do not understand it and just as soon as you understand one opinion, everything changes and you do not know where you are. I know I do not understand much that goes on in the political arena, but one of the things I have been hearing has to do with what they call, The Haves and the Have Nots. What do people mean when they use this phrase? Who are these Haves? And who are these Have Nots? Probably more importantly, what is it that these Haves have that the Have Nots want? The problem as I see it is simply this. If I want what somebody else has, am I really going to be happy when I have what he has? There are many things that I do not have and I am quite happy that I do not have them. I do not have an incurable disease. I do not have a debt so far above my head that I am going into bankruptcy. I do not have a table full of bills that I cannot pay. I am happy that I do not have any of these things. But as a part of the older generation, I do not really need anything that I do not have. I suppose it would be nice to have a new truck, but there is nothing wrong with my old truck. It still gets me where I want to go, the air conditioner still works and the radio still plays my kind of music. Why would I need a new truck? It probably would be nice to have a new house. At our age, my wife and I do not have the energy to pack up everything and unpack everything in a new place. As it stands, everything in our house is exactly where we want it. I choose to focus not on what I Have Not but on what I really do Have. I have a wonderful wife, but do not tell her I said so, it might get me into some kind of a situation. This year we will have been married some 43 years and why she has put up with the likes of me all this time I will never know. Actually, the fact that she has put up with me all these years brings into question her sanity. Haves, have nots and whatnots Out to Pastor Rev.

And Emma Straubs The Vacationers just might fill the bill. In it the dysfunctional Post family heads for two weeks in exotic Mallorca. On board are Jim and Franny Post celebrating their 35th anniversary. Their carefully guarded secret is that Jim is now a demoralized former breadwinner who lost his coveted job over a sexual dalliance at work and is now alienated from his wife in every significant way. Their daughter Sylvia, a recent highschool graduate, is still a virgin and wants to change that status before entering Brown in the fall. Son Bobby has money troubles hes concealing and a girlfriend whos entirely too old for him and doesnt fit into his literary family because both his parents are writers. Tagging along is Frannys longtime best friend Charles and his husband Lawrence who are trying to adopt a baby even though the odds against it are probably great. Once ensconced in the villa Franny is happily absorbed in planning activities and the daily menu: She was good at producing massive quantities of the sort of food no one noticesthe dense, dark muffins that were equally good at four p.m. as they were for breakfast; the cut-up fruit in a large bowl on the center rack of the refrigerator. She liked a house full of grazers, thinking that satisfied stomachs led to satisfied guests. All the stories are neatly arranged by dayDay One, Day Two etc. Considering the close quarters of the vacation rental, its not surprising that secrets begin peeling away and observations sharpen. From his periphery gay husband Lawrence notes that other peoples families were as mysterious as an alien species, full of secret codes and shared histories. Watching her husband Jim, Franny, too, puzzles over how little we know of each other even in families: What did anyone know about anyone else, including the person they were married to? Straub has given us characters that are neither bad nor good but altogether human. And she illuminates them with wit and loving detail. A fine summer read. Vacationers a good summer novel Bookmark Pat Wellington Heart of Florida gets grantThe American Cancer Society recently awarded a $50,000 grant to Heart of Florida Health Center (HFHC) to provide cancer awareness, education and screening for colorectal cancer to individuals in Marion County. The grant is part of a $6.4 million gift from the Walgreens Way To Well Commitment program that supports the American Cancer Societys Community Health Advocates implementing Nationwide Grants for Empowerment and Equity (CHANGE) program. The CHANGE grants help promote health equity and ensure that communities with a higher burden of cancer have equal access to education and screening resources. We are excited to be part of this unique initiative between the American Cancer Society and Walgreens because of the high need in Marion County, said HFHC Chief Executive Officer Kerrie Clark Jones. The grant will help fund HFHCs Marion County Colorectal Cancer Screening Initiative, which provides free colorectal cancer screening, in the form of fecal immunochemical tests (FIT). Individuals eligible for the program are age 50 75, uninsured and have income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The Health Resources and Services Administration has identified Marion County as a medically underserved area, as well as an area with a shortage of primary health care professionals. Between 2010 and 2012, 258 people died from colorectal cancer in Marion County, placing it in the top quartile of Florida counties for colorectal cancer mortality. According to the American Cancer Society, disparities predominantly arise from inequities in work, wealth, income, education, housing, and overall standard of living, as well as social barriers to high-quality cancer prevention, early detection and treatment services. Additionally, persons with lower socioeconomic status are more likely to experience increased cancer risks due to tobacco use, physical inactivity and poor diet due to environmental or community barriers that provide fewer opportunities for physical activity and less access to fruits and vegetables. The Society collaborates with community health partners to reach individuals in communities with high burdens of cancer and limited access to cancer screening. Through the CHANGE program, the Society provides resources to increase cancer screening rates in those communities.

Friday, June 27, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 27, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Get your facts together and become familiar with them before you have to face up to that interview. The better prepared you are, the easier it will be to make that important impression. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New information might warrant changing your mind about a recently made decision. Never mind the temporary confusion it might cause. Acting on the truth is always preferable. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a loving atmosphere for those you care for could pay off in many ways. Expect to hear some unexpected but very welcome news that can make a big difference in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Stepping away from an old and seemingly insoluble problem might be helpful. Use the time to take a new look at the situation and perhaps work out a new method of dealing with it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Youre still in a favorable goal-setting mode. However, you might need to be a little more realistic about some of your aims. Best to reach for what is currently doable. The rest will follow. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A setback is never easy to deal with. But it could be a boon in disguise. Recheck your proposal, and strengthen the weak spots. Seek advice from one who has been there and done that. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Coming up with a new way of handling a tedious job-regulated chore could lead to more than just a congratulatory memo once the word reaches the right people. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) What you might call determination someone else might regard as stubbornness. Look for ways to reach a compromise that wont require a major shift of views on your part. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Youre still in a vulnerable mode vis-a-vis offers that sound too good to be true. So continue to be skeptical about anything that cant be backed up with facts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Thrift is still dominant this week. What you dont spend on what you dont need will be available for you to draw on should a possible money crunch hit. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Staying close to home early in the week allows for some introspection about your social life. Sort out your feelings before rejoining your fellows on the weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It can be a bit daunting as well as exciting to find yourself finally taking action on a longdelayed move for a change. It helps to stay with it when others rally to support you. and is a free training to all who are interested. Early applications are important as the class fills up quickly. For more information and for an application, contact Emergency Management at 352-369-8100 or e-mail MarionCERT@marionso.com.Sunday, July 20 Jazz S ociety to performThe Ocala Jazz Society will be performing on Sunday, July 20 from 2-5 p.m. at VFW Post 4781 across from Oak Run.

It would be nice to live long enough to see my great-grandchildren, but I am not pushing that issue. I am rejoicing in what I have. The best thing that I have, the thing I treasure the most, is my relationship with God. I can identify with what David said, The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want (Psalm 23:1). What David is really saying here is that when the Lord is my Shepherd, then the reality is simply, I shall not want. The other side of the picture is true as well. If I find myself constantly in want, maybe the Lord is not my Shepherd.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God F ellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, June 27, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 27, 2014 BY LEEANN HALL Special to the CitizenThe U.S. Senate held a vote recently to bring up legislation allowing student debt holders to refinance old loans at lower current interest rates. The motion to debate the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act (S. 2432) garnered a 56-38 majority but fell short of the 60 votes needed to open debate. Republicans cast 37 of the 38 no votes. Only three Republicans joined 53 Democrats and Independents in voting to debate the bill. For members of the college and high school classes of 2014, and for past graduates, this effort to tackle the student debt issue is sorely needed. For whether their degrees are in math, science, history or English, our graduates are coming out of college schooled in something else entirely: the crushing weight of student loan debt. With outstanding student debt now topping $1.2 trillion, 40 million Americans are facing the consequences of our failing national commitment to higher education. This situation poses a threat to Americas economic vitality and its promise of opportunity. The Federal Reserve reports that growing student loan debt is holding borrowers back from buying homes and cars. This is bad news for an economy still trying to get its mojo back since the Great Recession. And student loans have turned into a big business for the U.S. Department of Education, which reportedly made a profit of $41.3 billion from federal student loans last year. If the agency were a corporation, it would be one of the most profitable in the world. Its time to address the student debt crisis and the toll its taking on the economy. Allowing refinancing will save borrowers thousands of dollars in interest payments. That will free up disposable income, boost consumer spending, and strengthen the economy. However, to fix the overall student debt picture, we need to think even bigger big enough to put free college back on the national agenda. Does free college sounds like magical thinking? Its more like a walk down memory lane. Fifty years ago in California, tuition-free college wasnt pie in the sky, it was state policy. In 1964, a world-class education in the public University of California system came with free tuition and fees totaling just $220 for the year. At the 1964 minimum wage of $1.25 an hour, you could earn $220 in four and a half weeks of fulltime work. That means a University of California student 50 years ago could earn enough to pay for a years college costs by flipping burgers for a month in the summer. Today, even at in-state rates, with tuition and fees averaging $8,893 for the 2013-2014 school year, it would take seven months of full-time work at the $7.25 federal minimum wage to make that much. Whats changed since 1964? A massive public disinvestment from higher education has shifted the costs of college onto students and families. Just in the past few years, state funding per student was cut by an average of 27 percent nationwide. Private interests have filled the void, transforming college finance into a vehicle for financial industry profits. Private lenders have moved aggressively into the student loan market, offering loans with interest rates in the double digits. The explosion of student loan debt has also fueled a burgeoning student loan debt collection industry. Translation: Wall Street has turned our college students into a new cash cow. It doesnt have to be this way. If were serious about giving our children and grandchildren real freedom freedom from student debt we need to reverse the trend of public disinvestment, put a stop to private profiteering, and recommit to free college in America. Then we need to marshal the resources to make it happen. Ending offshore tax giveaways to multinational corporations and millionaires would be one way to get there. Is solving the student debt crisis going to take a fight, given the political clout of the financial interests that are making big money off the status quo? Of course. But its a fight worth having. Lets make college in America what it should be: a free, shared vehicle for building an educated people, not another costly way for special interests to take us for a ride.Hall is executive director of the Alliance for a Just Society, a national research, policy, and organizing network. The moaning and groaning about the upcoming County Commission election has already started. Republicans Glen Fiorello and Carl Zalak have qualified for the District 4 seat and will face each other in the Aug. 26 primary. Under state law, if there was no one running in November, then Democrats would be allowed to vote in the GOP primary in this one race. However, a write-in candidate, Chris Tarner, has filed, and people can vote for him in November, even though his name wont be on the ballot (by definition, thats what a write-in is). That means that Democrats can write in Tarners name in November, but they cant vote for either Fiorello or Zalak in the Republican primary; only registered GOP voters can go to the polls in that election. Democrats are crying foul, saying they are disenfranchised. Sorry, folks, I dont agree. If the Democrats want to have a say in the election of a county commissioner, they should field a candidate in each race. Are they telling us that out of 77,837 registered Democrats in Marion County (the figure from the Supervisor of Elections website), they cant find two people to run for County Commission? Apparently not. In the District 2 race, there was a Democrat who was reporting income on the website, but she failed to qualify. All GOP challengers dropped out, so Kathy Bryant was re-elected without opposition. This race, or lack of it, also taught us another thing: Dont listen to the emotional outbursts of people at County Commission meetings. After the dog tethering debate was finally settled, those in favor of banning the practice threatened the commissioners after they didnt get what they wanted. Well remember this come Election Day, they said. In Bryants case, they can remember all they want. Shes unopposed, and again, before they cry foul, they should realize that they failed to convince anyone to run against her. Every couple of years, this law about disenfranchising voters comes up for discussion. And it isnt just a one-party issue. In other parts of the state, which are strongly Democratic, the same procedure has been used to disenfranchise Republicans, as they like to say. The same advice prevails. If you dont like being shut out of the voting, find a candidate to run. It will be interesting to see how the race develops in District 4. There are forums scheduled at the State Road 200 Coalition meeting at 1 p.m. on July 14, OTOW Cultural Center on July 21 and Ocala Police Department on July 28, both at 6:30 p.m. Try to take advantage of these opportunities to hear the candidates.

For years, the VAs delivery of health care to our nations veterans has been a ticking time bomb ignored by Congress, as well as Republican and Democratic administrations. The time bomb exploded last month when allegations that as many as 40 veterans may have died awaiting medical appointments at the VA medical center in Phoenix, Arizona, created a national firestorm. In response, a VA audit revealed that despite a standard of 14 days wait, more than 57,000 veterans have waited over 90 days for medical appointments. Furthermore, 64,000 who enrolled in the VA health care system over the past 10 years never saw a doctor. The Phoenix incident has laid bare a Congress that has neglected reforming a health care system long in crisis and a VA culture underpinned by bureaucratic inertia and moral corruption. Congress expanded the delivery of health care beyond the promise of President Abraham Lincoln to care for him who shall have borne the battle by extending eligibility to veterans with non-serviceconnected conditions. Its failure to adequately resource the extended eligibility contributed to a shortage of medical staff, which necessitated the adoption of eight priorities of care with the unintended consequence of excessive patient wait times for appointments. Compounding this unintended consequence is Congress reluctance to balance the distribution of funding with need in a timely manner. As a consequence, VA funding has been slow to follow veteran population shifts, which has significantly impacted Florida. With 1,700 medical facilities serving 9 million patients, the VAs bureaucratic inertia is clearly a function of its size and centralization. This is apparent by the recent VA audit that found the vast majority of health care delivery issues were at its medical centers and not Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs). Decentralizing the delivery of care through CBOCs has served to foster doctor-patient relationships, making it more personalized and timely. This is attested to by the fact that the recent VA audit recommended no further review for the Lecanto, Ocala and Villages CBOCs. Local veterans also expressed general satisfaction with their CBOC care. Most disturbing and sad was the morally corrupt practice centered at the VA medical centers of gaming the delivery of health care by manipulating patient wait times for the benefit of performance bonuses. With congressional elections on the horizon, Congress promptly responded to the VAs health care crisis with draft legislation that offers some relief. Nevertheless, it is more a temporary fix than a permanent solution. Failure to commit to a permanent solution could further undermine public confidence and ultimately spell the dismantling of the VA health care system in favor of a private sector solution. While this may have appeal for some, it would be at the expense of a valuable national asset that provides specialized care for the unique medical issues that veterans face. Return to the original purpose of caring for those with service-connected disabilities. Integrate the VA and Defense Department health care systems to achieve economy of scale and seamless continuity of care. Pass the Putting Veterans Funding First Act sponsored by Rep. Jeff Miller of Florida to provide advance appropriations for all VA discretionary accounts. Congress and the Obama administration have a moral obligation to reform the VA health care system to assure those who bear the physical and mental costs of defending our country are the top priority.

Yep, the calendar tells us that summer started last Sunday. Its time to sit back with a tall glass of iced tea and have a chuckle.Seattle rainA newcomer to Seattle arrived on a rainy day. She got up the next day and it was raining. It also rained the day after that, and the day after that. She went to lunch and saw a young kid and, out of despair, asked, Hey, kid, does it ever stop raining around here? The kid said, How should I know? Im only 6.TreedWhen I planted a banana tree in my yard a friend said I might have trouble with the climate. I told him, I dont want to climb it; I just want to grow it.Musicians scoreThe Williston Symphony Orchestra was performing Beethovens Ninth Symphony. There is an extensive section where the bass players dont play for about 20 minutes. One of them decided that theyd all just file offstage during this time and hang out backstage, then return when they were about to play. On the night of the performance, the bass players filed off as planned when the leader suggested, its so hot and weve got 20 minutes, lets run across the street to the bar for a few. So off they went, tuxedos and all, to loosen up. Fifteen minutes and few rounds later, one of the players said, Shouldnt we be heading back? Its almost time. But the leader announced, Oh dont worry, well have some extra time, I played a little joke on the conductor. Before the performance started, I tied string around each page of his score so that hed have to untie each page to turn it. The piece will drag on a bit. Weve got time for another round! So another round they did, and finally, sloshed and staggering, they made their way back across the street to finish Ludwigs 9th. Upon entering the stage, they immediately noticed the conductors haggard, drawn, and livid expression. Gee, one player queried, Why do you suppose he looks so tense? Youd be tense, too, laughed the leader. Its the bottom of the 9th, the score is tied, and the basses are loaded!SummertimeAt this time of year, a lot of parents pack up their troubles. Then they send them off to summer camp. It was raining cats and dogs and there were poodles in the streets. In Minnesota, summer activities depend on whether it falls on a weekend or not. When the calendar nears end of June, I must tend to my plum tree real soon. There is no way to beat torrid summertime heat. If plums dry on the tree, I should prune.

People in London who depended on hearing the hourly bell chimes became ticked-off. A repair crew tackled the problem and within a few days the correct time was again displayed on all four faces.

One night a romantic young couple was nearby. When their appetizers came I couldnt figure out what was happening. Every time he would take a bite, he would jump up and give the girl a big hug. This bizarre behavior continued; he took a bite, gave her a big hug, and she squealed. Everyone was looking! When my waiter came by I mentioned the entertainment and he said, Oh, we have that all the time in here. You see, that man ordered the Seize Her Salad.

Older parents who give a lot of help to their grown children affect the happiness of everyone involved. Researches found that helping our grown children financially, emotionally or in practical ways did not generally have an adverse effect on parents happiness. It may even improve their well-being if their help allows their child to live a happier and more successful life. Master the PossibilitiesNext week is a short week for Master the Possibilities, however, there are still five programs set to start. Dont forget the League of Women Voters Candidates Forum featuring School Board Candidates on Monday evening, June 30 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Circle Square Cultural Center.

Monday, July 7, is a great day for sharing with others in this celebration of remembrance and the future. Donating a pint of your blood to help those hurt and sick and hoping for new blood to replace that lost in illness or accident or bringing in new life to the world. Donating a pint of your blood every eight weeks is very healthy for you and very helpful to those who need your blood. To help you, and others, the Life South Bloodmobile will be stationed in the front parking lot of On Top Of the Worlds Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Monday, July 7, to assist you in helping those in need of your pint of blood. Regulars know the easy-to-follow procedures: Drop in, bring an ID card, answer a few questions, take a seat, roll up a sleeve, smile at the friendly, specially trained technician, enjoy a beverage as your donation is delivered, get up and leave with a sweet treat, a special prize, and a really great feeling of being a hero! Thats right your pint donation can save three others. (Some people who will be having surgery in the future donate to stockpile the blood they will receive during and/or after surgery. Just tell the tech who takes your blood.) Join us in the Life South Bloodmobile on July 7. Celebrate the feeling of a new independence! The fantastic group of 25 Life South donors from our May 5 include these heroes: Kathleen Becker, Catherine Bennett, Donnamarie Castellano, Esther Cohen, Richard Copeland, Susan Copeland, Lynn Dowd, Kathleen Dushary, Ray Governatori, James Hacker, Aaron Hertz, Barbara Ippolito, Lila King, Diane Knox, Barbara Kratz, William Kreppel, Nancy Ludvik, Mary Melzer, Robert Melzer, Marguerite Piotrowski, Norman Reckner, Lois Reisinger, Howard Rutkowski, Paul Wagnitz, and Emma WanamTheatre Group By Anne MerrickAuditions for the fall play are being held on Tuesday, July 8 at 2 p.m. in Suite G at the Arbor Club Conference Center.

We have some awesome volunteers here in Oak Run. There are those who help on a dinner or some event. Then there are those who are on committees where they serve weekly or perhaps head up many of the entertaining events. Do they ever get tired? Do they wish some others would step up to the plate? I was thinking of bingo and so stopped in to say hello to the chair Dee Spath. She has done a wonderful job, along with her committee working at bingo every Tuesday. Along the way I met Linda the lovely lady in charge of the concession. (see bingo article). Then I wondered how many of the residents volunteer outside of Oak Run. I would love to know how many there really are at hospitals, reading programs at local schools, Sheriffs office, community boards and on, on, on. It must have been my day for wondering. I was looking at all the ads for local businesses and the generosity of the Citizen for allowing different develop.m.ents to publish their activities. So then I thought I would to say to my readers, please support them. Well enough of my thinking for the day as I still have to finish this column and let you know whats happening. Oh, I just thought about the Mystery Trip the Travel Committee has planned and who doesnt like a good mystery. I warn you though Jim Waddell, chairman will not even give out a hint so I guess all will have to sign up and see for yourself. By the way dont forget to decorate your carts and join the parade, hope to see there. Call Paul Pike for a spot in the line-up. Laura Oak Runs Club Shalom The Club Shalom is to be commended for sponsoring Tzorim Friendship Caravan 2014 (Israeli Scouts). I cant remember enjoying a show as much as I did seeing these young people from Israel with so much energy singing and dancing to present their love of their country to us. The only time they did not smile was at the beginning when a moment of silence was called to pray for their three peers who were kidnapped off of the street in Israel and have not been returned. The show was a mixture of dances that encouraged some memIsraeli Scouts visit Oak Run Oak Run Laura Smith PHOTO BY RON RATNERIsraeli Scouts perform. bers of the audience to join them, what fun. There were 10 Scouts performing and more times than not they were in the aisles. Much of their music and words had much meaning to them, love of their country. There are three groups travelling in our country entertaining at 200 different venues. They called on all of us to enjoy every moment of our life. The program ended with the singing of Israels nation anthem. Their pride as they sang brought me to tears. I want to thank Ron Ratner for taking time to come and take photos.Laura SmithOak Run Veterans AssociationThe Oak Run Veterans Association will be marching in the Fourth of July parade which will start at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, July 4.

Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management are your hosts for this wonderful night out. Tickets are required so see Geri in the office as soon as possible.

Of course there will be door prizes and 50/50 drawings to go along with the entertainment. Cherrywood Property Management sponsors Comedy Night so it is free to all residents.Ritz House graduates twoJust over two years ago Johny Twiggs III and Michael Moran came to the Ritz House. They shared two facts in common; they were both veterans and they were both homeless. For the next 24 months these veterans were able to stay in a quiet; comfortable room; eat at the modern kitchen facilities and get help in dealing with their living situation. Drugs and alcohol are strictly forbidden by the Ritz House and residents must seek to improve their life styles through education; psychological services; counseling; job training and other quality of life programs. These two individuals did all of that and more. Al Morrison is the resident manager of Ritz House and he takes great pride in the work that is being done for homeless veterans. When talking about the two graduates, his face lights up and it is obvious that he shares the pride and sense of accomplishment with these two men. As an example, Johny is receiving his Associate Degree this week and Michael is starting a new job. Both now share two other facts in common; they are both filled with hope for the future and both are moving into their own residences. Your Cherrywood Veterans Club has long been a supporter of the Ritz House and on Tuesday, June 17, Club President Bill Mahar along with Jim Beckman and Bill Brotherhood delivered two truck loads of assorted household goods to the two graduates who are moving to their own individual apartments. Donations were made by several residents of Cherrywood including chairs; tables; dishes and other items needed to set up apartment living. A check for $125 each was also delivered by Mahar so that the men could go to the local thrift stores and purchase needed amenities for their new quarters. Special thanks to Marty Duesel; Ken McLeod and Sarah Blair for their help in making this mission possible. Also, we thank George Nelson; Walter and Suzanne Gammell; Anne Bardack; Bernice Hasinec and Janice McLeod who generously contributed to this cause. We are confident in the foundation that has been laid for these two individuals. We are also confident that they will rejoin a society that is grateful for their service and proud of their accomplishments. We wish them nothing but good luck in their future.TriviaOn Wednesday at 7 p.m. our Trivia players gathered to have another rousing game filled with laughter and good times. The 20 plus participants seemed to have a good time as they answered some mind boggling queries and some that were not too difficult but humorous. Mary, Victor, Frank and Gene were the victorious team this week. They have earned bragging rights for the entire month so when you see them, feel free to ask them any questions you might have and get their autograph. Well, maybe not. Richard Hurley will be the Trivia Quiz Master on July 18 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. Bring your liquid refreshments and snacks; brings some friends and bring your sense of humor. The cost is only $1 per person and all of the proceeds go to the Patriot Dog Project. So far this year Trivia has raised more than $400 for that worthwhile charity. Our thanks to Fred and Jay OHern for the hard work they put in to making Trivia Night such an enjoyable evening for all who take part.Cherrywood TravelTime is running out to make your reservations for the trip to Biloxi.

Hosted by the Cherrywood Veterans Club; this annual event is held to thank the veterans and their families for their service to our country and their continued support and service to our community. The event was catered in by Lees Chicken. Kenny Jackson was the entertainer for the evening and he was at his stellar best. After doing a salute to all the branches of the military service; he began the night with some favorite dance melodies. Before long the line dancers were up and moving about in lively unison; It wasnt too far along in the evening when some of our more talented residents decided to entertain Karaoke style. What would a great dance reception be without songs like the Y.M.C.A. and the old favorite, Hokey Pokey? Well, those songs and others like them were included in the evenings selections adding mirth and mayhem to the party. Even some of our walking wounded guests like T.T. got into the swing of things. Six door prizes were awarded throughout the night one of which; a bottle of wine, was won by Marie Brotherhood. Shes special to all of our residents and seeing her win brought big smiles to everyone. The dinner began at 5 p.m. and many of the guests stayed past 9. That speaks highly for the Veterans Club planning under Bill Mahar its president. It is also a reflection on Kenny Jackson and the caliber of his skills. We thank all of the people who took part and helped make this event such a success. In particular we would like to recognize Eve and Jim Houghtaling and Christl Giovanniello for their decorating and other services; Holly Bragdon for photos; Janice and Ken McLeod for 50/50 ticket sales and Ida Mahar; Marti Duesel; Marguerite Fiorenza for serving help.

Hosted by the Cherrywood Veterans Club; this annual event is held to thank the veterans and their families for their service to our country and their continued support and service to our community. The event was catered in by Lees Chicken. Kenny Jackson was the entertainer for the evening and he was at his stellar best. After doing a salute to all the branches of the military service; he began the night with some favorite dance melodies. Before long the line dancers were up and moving about in lively unison; It wasnt too far along in the evening when some of our more talented residents decided to entertain Karaoke style. What would a great dance reception be without songs like the Y.M.C.A. and the old favorite, Hokey Pokey? Well, those songs and others like them were included in the evenings selections adding mirth and mayhem to the party. Even some of our walking wounded guests like T.T. got into the swing of things. Six door prizes were awarded throughout the night one of which; a bottle of wine, was won by Marie Brotherhood. Shes special to all of our residents and seeing her win brought big smiles to everyone. The dinner began at 5 p.m. and many of the guests stayed past 9. That speaks highly for the Veterans Club planning under Bill Mahar its president. It is also a reflection on Kenny Jackson and the caliber of his skills. We thank all of the people who took part and helped make this event such a success. In particular we would like to recognize Eve and Jim Houghtaling and Christl Giovanniello for their decorating and other services; Holly Bragdon for photos; Janice and Ken McLeod for 50/50 ticket sales and Ida Mahar; Marti Duesel; Marguerite Fiorenza for serving help. Club Officers Bill Mahar and Bill Spangenberg donated door prizes while Marty Duesel helped cover several positions serving food; clean up and supporting the other workers.

They shared two facts in common; they were both veterans and they were both homeless. For the next 24 months these veterans were able to stay in a quiet; comfortable room; eat at the modern kitchen facilities and get help in dealing with their living situation. Drugs and alcohol are strictly forbidden by the Ritz House and residents must seek to improve their life styles through education; psychological services; counseling; job training and other quality of life programs. These two individuals did all of that and more. Al Morrison is the resident manager of Ritz House and he takes great pride in the work that is being done for homeless veterans. When talking about the two graduates, his face lights up and it is obvious that he shares the pride and sense of accomplishment with these two men. As an example, Johny is receiving his Associate Degree this week and Michael is starting a new job. Both now share two other facts in common; they are both filled with hope for the future and both are moving into their own residences. Your Cherrywood Veterans Club has long been a supporter of the Ritz House and on Tuesday, June 17, Club President Bill Mahar along with Jim Beckman and Bill Brotherhood delivered two truck loads of assorted household goods to the two graduates who are moving to their own individual apartments. Donations were made by several residents of Cherrywood including chairs; tables; dishes and other items needed to set up apartment living. A check for $125 each was also delivered by Mahar so that the men could go to the local thrift stores and purchase needed amenities for their new quarters. Special thanks to Marty Duesel; Ken McLeod and Sarah Blair for their help in making this mission possible. Also, we thank George Nelson; Walter and Suzanne Gammell; Anne Bardack; Bernice Hasinec and Janice McLeod who generously contributed to this cause. We are confident in the foundation that has been laid for these two individuals. We are also confident that they will rejoin a society that is grateful for their service and proud of their accomplishments. We wish them nothing but good luck in their future.TriviaOn Wednesday at 7 p.m. our Trivia players gathered to have another rousing game filled with laughter and good times. The 20 plus participants seemed to have a good time as they answered some mind boggling queries and some that were not too difficult but humorous. Mary, Victor, Frank and Gene were the victorious team this week. They have earned bragging rights for the entire month so when you see them, feel free to ask them any questions you might have and get their autograph. Well, maybe not. Richard Hurley will be the Trivia Quiz Master on July 18 at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse. Bring your liquid refreshments and snacks; brings some friends and bring your sense of humor. The cost is only $1 per person and all of the proceeds go to the Patriot Dog Project. So far this year Trivia has raised more than $400 for that worthwhile charity. Our thanks to Fred and Jay OHern for the hard work they put in to making Trivia Night such an enjoyable evening for all who take part.Cherrywood TravelTime is running out to make your reservations for the trip to Biloxi.

Older parents who give a lot of help to their grown children affect the happiness of everyone involved. Researches found that helping our grown children financially, emotionally or in practical ways did not generally have an adverse effect on parents happiness. It may even improve their well-being if their help allows their child to live a happier and more successful life. Master the PossibilitiesNext week is a short week for Master the Possibilities, however, there are still five programs set to start. Dont forget the League of Women Voters Candidates Forum featuring School Board Candidates on Monday evening, June 30 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Circle Square Cultural Center. Its a great way to become educated about the candidates. There are also art classes, current events and a film series. No classes are scheduled for Friday the 4th. To register go to masterthepossibilities.com or call the dedicated registration line 854 3699. 70 classes are scheduled for Julybe part of it!Lifesouth Blood Mobile a reminderCelebrating July 4 Independence Day for the United States a great day to remember and reconsider the past of our great country to recall and bow our heads in gratitude to all those brave men and women who loved and sacrificed to make and keep this country strong and free! Monday, July 7, is a great day for sharing with others in this celebration of remembrance and the future. Donating a pint of your blood to help those hurt and sick and hoping for new blood to replace that lost in illness or accident or bringing in new life to the world. Donating a pint of your blood every eight weeks is very healthy for you and very helpful to those who need your blood. To help you, and others, the Life South Bloodmobile will be stationed in the front parking lot of On Top Of the Worlds Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Monday, July 7, to assist you in helping those in need of your pint of blood. Regulars know the easy-to-follow procedures: Drop in, bring an ID card, answer a few questions, take a seat, roll up a sleeve, smile at the friendly, specially trained technician, enjoy a beverage as your donation is delivered, get up and leave with a sweet treat, a special prize, and a really great feeling of being a hero! Thats right your pint donation can save three others. (Some people who will be having surgery in the future donate to stockpile the blood they will receive during and/or after surgery. Just tell the tech who takes your blood.) Join us in the Life South Bloodmobile on July 7. Celebrate the feeling of a new independence! The fantastic group of 25 Life South donors from our May 5 include these heroes: Kathleen Becker, Catherine Bennett, Donnamarie Castellano, Esther Cohen, Richard Copeland, Susan Copeland, Lynn Dowd, Kathleen Dushary, Ray Governatori, James Hacker, Aaron Hertz, Barbara Ippolito, Lila King, Diane Knox, Barbara Kratz, William Kreppel, Nancy Ludvik, Mary Melzer, Robert Melzer, Marguerite Piotrowski, Norman Reckner, Lois Reisinger, Howard Rutkowski, Paul Wagnitz, and Emma WanamTheatre Group By Anne MerrickAuditions for the fall play are being held on Tuesday, July 8 at 2 p.m. in Suite G at the Arbor Club Conference Center. This is open to any resident of On Top of the World. Its a bad year for Tomatoes is this years choice. It is a medium length comedy with four women and three men players. It should be a blast so come on over on July 8, read a bit of the play and see what you can do. You might be surprised at what talent you have. We also need people who will be a part of behind the scenes help. If there are enough of us the responsibilities can be shared.

We have some awesome volunteers here in Oak Run. There are those who help on a dinner or some event. Then there are those who are on committees where they serve weekly or perhaps head up many of the entertaining events. Do they ever get tired? Do they wish some others would step up to the plate? I was thinking of bingo and so stopped in to say hello to the chair Dee Spath. She has done a wonderful job, along with her committee working at bingo every Tuesday. Along the way I met Linda the lovely lady in charge of the concession. (see bingo article). Then I wondered how many of the residents volunteer outside of Oak Run. I would love to know how many there really are at hospitals, reading programs at local schools, Sheriffs office, community boards and on, on, on. It must have been my day for wondering. I was looking at all the ads for local businesses and the generosity of the Citizen for allowing different develop.m.ents to publish their activities. So then I thought I would to say to my readers, please support them. Well enough of my thinking for the day as I still have to finish this column and let you know whats happening. Oh, I just thought about the Mystery Trip the Travel Committee has planned and who doesnt like a good mystery. I warn you though Jim Waddell, chairman will not even give out a hint so I guess all will have to sign up and see for yourself. By the way dont forget to decorate your carts and join the parade, hope to see there. Call Paul Pike for a spot in the line-up. Laura Oak Runs Club Shalom The Club Shalom is to be commended for sponsoring Tzorim Friendship Caravan 2014 (Israeli Scouts). I cant remember enjoying a show as much as I did seeing these young people from Israel with so much energy singing and dancing to present their love of their country to us. The only time they did not smile was at the beginning when a moment of silence was called to pray for their three peers who were kidnapped off of the street in Israel and have not been returned. The show was a mixture of dances that encouraged some memIsraeli Scouts visit Oak Run Oak Run Laura Smith PHOTO BY RON RATNERIsraeli Scouts perform. bers of the audience to join them, what fun. There were 10 Scouts performing and more times than not they were in the aisles. Much of their music and words had much meaning to them, love of their country. There are three groups travelling in our country entertaining at 200 different venues. They called on all of us to enjoy every moment of our life. The program ended with the singing of Israels nation anthem. Their pride as they sang brought me to tears. I want to thank Ron Ratner for taking time to come and take photos.Laura SmithOak Run Veterans AssociationThe Oak Run Veterans Association will be marching in the Fourth of July parade which will start at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, July 4. We will be providing a trailer for any Oak Run veteran who needs a ride. Please contact Gerald Cassatt at 3225966, so that he can plan to have enough chairs in the trailer.

Friday, June 27, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 27, 2014 BY LEEANN HALL Special to the CitizenThe U.S. Senate held a vote recently to bring up legislation allowing student debt holders to refinance old loans at lower current interest rates. The motion to debate the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act (S. 2432) garnered a 56-38 majority but fell short of the 60 votes needed to open debate. Republicans cast 37 of the 38 no votes. Only three Republicans joined 53 Democrats and Independents in voting to debate the bill. For members of the college and high school classes of 2014, and for past graduates, this effort to tackle the student debt issue is sorely needed. For whether their degrees are in math, science, history or English, our graduates are coming out of college schooled in something else entirely: the crushing weight of student loan debt. With outstanding student debt now topping $1.2 trillion, 40 million Americans are facing the consequences of our failing national commitment to higher education. This situation poses a threat to Americas economic vitality and its promise of opportunity. The Federal Reserve reports that growing student loan debt is holding borrowers back from buying homes and cars. This is bad news for an economy still trying to get its mojo back since the Great Recession. And student loans have turned into a big business for the U.S. Department of Education, which reportedly made a profit of $41.3 billion from federal student loans last year. If the agency were a corporation, it would be one of the most profitable in the world. Its time to address the student debt crisis and the toll its taking on the economy. Allowing refinancing will save borrowers thousands of dollars in interest payments. That will free up disposable income, boost consumer spending, and strengthen the economy. However, to fix the overall student debt picture, we need to think even bigger big enough to put free college back on the national agenda. Does free college sounds like magical thinking? Its more like a walk down memory lane. Fifty years ago in California, tuition-free college wasnt pie in the sky, it was state policy. In 1964, a world-class education in the public University of California system came with free tuition and fees totaling just $220 for the year. At the 1964 minimum wage of $1.25 an hour, you could earn $220 in four and a half weeks of fulltime work. That means a University of California student 50 years ago could earn enough to pay for a years college costs by flipping burgers for a month in the summer. Today, even at in-state rates, with tuition and fees averaging $8,893 for the 2013-2014 school year, it would take seven months of full-time work at the $7.25 federal minimum wage to make that much. Whats changed since 1964? A massive public disinvestment from higher education has shifted the costs of college onto students and families. Just in the past few years, state funding per student was cut by an average of 27 percent nationwide. Private interests have filled the void, transforming college finance into a vehicle for financial industry profits. Private lenders have moved aggressively into the student loan market, offering loans with interest rates in the double digits. The explosion of student loan debt has also fueled a burgeoning student loan debt collection industry. Translation: Wall Street has turned our college students into a new cash cow. It doesnt have to be this way. If were serious about giving our children and grandchildren real freedom freedom from student debt we need to reverse the trend of public disinvestment, put a stop to private profiteering, and recommit to free college in America. Then we need to marshal the resources to make it happen. Ending offshore tax giveaways to multinational corporations and millionaires would be one way to get there. Is solving the student debt crisis going to take a fight, given the political clout of the financial interests that are making big money off the status quo? Of course. But its a fight worth having. Lets make college in America what it should be: a free, shared vehicle for building an educated people, not another costly way for special interests to take us for a ride.Hall is executive director of the Alliance for a Just Society, a national research, policy, and organizing network. The moaning and groaning about the upcoming County Commission election has already started. Republicans Glen Fiorello and Carl Zalak have qualified for the District 4 seat and will face each other in the Aug. 26 primary. Under state law, if there was no one running in November, then Democrats would be allowed to vote in the GOP primary in this one race. However, a write-in candidate, Chris Tarner, has filed, and people can vote for him in November, even though his name wont be on the ballot (by definition, thats what a write-in is). That means that Democrats can write in Tarners name in November, but they cant vote for either Fiorello or Zalak in the Republican primary; only registered GOP voters can go to the polls in that election. Democrats are crying foul, saying they are disenfranchised. Sorry, folks, I dont agree. If the Democrats want to have a say in the election of a county commissioner, they should field a candidate in each race. Are they telling us that out of 77,837 registered Democrats in Marion County (the figure from the Supervisor of Elections website), they cant find two people to run for County Commission? Apparently not. In the District 2 race, there was a Democrat who was reporting income on the website, but she failed to qualify. All GOP challengers dropped out, so Kathy Bryant was re-elected without opposition. This race, or lack of it, also taught us another thing: Dont listen to the emotional outbursts of people at County Commission meetings. After the dog tethering debate was finally settled, those in favor of banning the practice threatened the commissioners after they didnt get what they wanted. Well remember this come Election Day, they said. In Bryants case, they can remember all they want. Shes unopposed, and again, before they cry foul, they should realize that they failed to convince anyone to run against her. Every couple of years, this law about disenfranchising voters comes up for discussion. And it isnt just a one-party issue. In other parts of the state, which are strongly Democratic, the same procedure has been used to disenfranchise Republicans, as they like to say. The same advice prevails. If you dont like being shut out of the voting, find a candidate to run. It will be interesting to see how the race develops in District 4. There are forums scheduled at the State Road 200 Coalition meeting at 1 p.m. on July 14, OTOW Cultural Center on July 21 and Ocala Police Department on July 28, both at 6:30 p.m. Try to take advantage of these opportunities to hear the candidates.

For years, the VAs delivery of health care to our nations veterans has been a ticking time bomb ignored by Congress, as well as Republican and Democratic administrations. The time bomb exploded last month when allegations that as many as 40 veterans may have died awaiting medical appointments at the VA medical center in Phoenix, Arizona, created a national firestorm. In response, a VA audit revealed that despite a standard of 14 days wait, more than 57,000 veterans have waited over 90 days for medical appointments. Furthermore, 64,000 who enrolled in the VA health care system over the past 10 years never saw a doctor. The Phoenix incident has laid bare a Congress that has neglected reforming a health care system long in crisis and a VA culture underpinned by bureaucratic inertia and moral corruption. Congress expanded the delivery of health care beyond the promise of President Abraham Lincoln to care for him who shall have borne the battle by extending eligibility to veterans with non-serviceconnected conditions. Its failure to adequately resource the extended eligibility contributed to a shortage of medical staff, which necessitated the adoption of eight priorities of care with the unintended consequence of excessive patient wait times for appointments. Compounding this unintended consequence is Congress reluctance to balance the distribution of funding with need in a timely manner. As a consequence, VA funding has been slow to follow veteran population shifts, which has significantly impacted Florida. With 1,700 medical facilities serving 9 million patients, the VAs bureaucratic inertia is clearly a function of its size and centralization. This is apparent by the recent VA audit that found the vast majority of health care delivery issues were at its medical centers and not Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs). Decentralizing the delivery of care through CBOCs has served to foster doctor-patient relationships, making it more personalized and timely. This is attested to by the fact that the recent VA audit recommended no further review for the Lecanto, Ocala and Villages CBOCs. Local veterans also expressed general satisfaction with their CBOC care. Most disturbing and sad was the morally corrupt practice centered at the VA medical centers of gaming the delivery of health care by manipulating patient wait times for the benefit of performance bonuses. With congressional elections on the horizon, Congress promptly responded to the VAs health care crisis with draft legislation that offers some relief. Nevertheless, it is more a temporary fix than a permanent solution. Failure to commit to a permanent solution could further undermine public confidence and ultimately spell the dismantling of the VA health care system in favor of a private sector solution. While this may have appeal for some, it would be at the expense of a valuable national asset that provides specialized care for the unique medical issues that veterans face. Return to the original purpose of caring for those with service-connected disabilities. Integrate the VA and Defense Department health care systems to achieve economy of scale and seamless continuity of care. Pass the Putting Veterans Funding First Act sponsored by Rep. Jeff Miller of Florida to provide advance appropriations for all VA discretionary accounts. Congress and the Obama administration have a moral obligation to reform the VA health care system to assure those who bear the physical and mental costs of defending our country are the top priority.

Yep, the calendar tells us that summer started last Sunday. Its time to sit back with a tall glass of iced tea and have a chuckle.Seattle rainA newcomer to Seattle arrived on a rainy day. She got up the next day and it was raining. It also rained the day after that, and the day after that. She went to lunch and saw a young kid and, out of despair, asked, Hey, kid, does it ever stop raining around here? The kid said, How should I know? Im only 6.TreedWhen I planted a banana tree in my yard a friend said I might have trouble with the climate. I told him, I dont want to climb it; I just want to grow it.Musicians scoreThe Williston Symphony Orchestra was performing Beethovens Ninth Symphony. There is an extensive section where the bass players dont play for about 20 minutes. One of them decided that theyd all just file offstage during this time and hang out backstage, then return when they were about to play. On the night of the performance, the bass players filed off as planned when the leader suggested, its so hot and weve got 20 minutes, lets run across the street to the bar for a few. So off they went, tuxedos and all, to loosen up. Fifteen minutes and few rounds later, one of the players said, Shouldnt we be heading back? Its almost time. But the leader announced, Oh dont worry, well have some extra time, I played a little joke on the conductor. Before the performance started, I tied string around each page of his score so that hed have to untie each page to turn it. The piece will drag on a bit. Weve got time for another round! So another round they did, and finally, sloshed and staggering, they made their way back across the street to finish Ludwigs 9th. Upon entering the stage, they immediately noticed the conductors haggard, drawn, and livid expression. Gee, one player queried, Why do you suppose he looks so tense? Youd be tense, too, laughed the leader. Its the bottom of the 9th, the score is tied, and the basses are loaded!SummertimeAt this time of year, a lot of parents pack up their troubles. Then they send them off to summer camp. It was raining cats and dogs and there were poodles in the streets. In Minnesota, summer activities depend on whether it falls on a weekend or not. When the calendar nears end of June, I must tend to my plum tree real soon. There is no way to beat torrid summertime heat. If plums dry on the tree, I should prune.

While sitting in the sun reading a book this summer a lot of folks will become well red. Isnt it great to get out on the old golf course again and lie in the sun? You say you saw a lot of her this summer? Yes, I met her a number of times down at the bathing beach. Big Bens heat strokeHigh heat recently caused one of the worlds most famous timepieces to stop. People in London who depended on hearing the hourly bell chimes became ticked-off. A repair crew tackled the problem and within a few days the correct time was again displayed on all four faces. This was only possible because the dedicated team was willing to work around the clock.Heating outRather than heating up the kitchen to make dinner, we have been going to nice cool restaurants. One night a romantic young couple was nearby. When their appetizers came I couldnt figure out what was happening. Every time he would take a bite, he would jump up and give the girl a big hug. This bizarre behavior continued; he took a bite, gave her a big hug, and she squealed. Everyone was looking! When my waiter came by I mentioned the entertainment and he said, Oh, we have that all the time in here. You see, that man ordered the Seize Her Salad.

Friday, June 27, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 27, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Get your facts together and become familiar with them before you have to face up to that interview. The better prepared you are, the easier it will be to make that important impression. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) New information might warrant changing your mind about a recently made decision. Never mind the temporary confusion it might cause. Acting on the truth is always preferable. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a loving atmosphere for those you care for could pay off in many ways. Expect to hear some unexpected but very welcome news that can make a big difference in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Stepping away from an old and seemingly insoluble problem might be helpful. Use the time to take a new look at the situation and perhaps work out a new method of dealing with it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Youre still in a favorable goal-setting mode. However, you might need to be a little more realistic about some of your aims. Best to reach for what is currently doable. The rest will follow. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A setback is never easy to deal with. But it could be a boon in disguise. Recheck your proposal, and strengthen the weak spots. Seek advice from one who has been there and done that. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Coming up with a new way of handling a tedious job-regulated chore could lead to more than just a congratulatory memo once the word reaches the right people. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) What you might call determination someone else might regard as stubbornness. Look for ways to reach a compromise that wont require a major shift of views on your part. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Youre still in a vulnerable mode vis-a-vis offers that sound too good to be true. So continue to be skeptical about anything that cant be backed up with facts. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Thrift is still dominant this week. What you dont spend on what you dont need will be available for you to draw on should a possible money crunch hit. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Staying close to home early in the week allows for some introspection about your social life. Sort out your feelings before rejoining your fellows on the weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) It can be a bit daunting as well as exciting to find yourself finally taking action on a longdelayed move for a change. It helps to stay with it when others rally to support you. and is a free training to all who are interested. Early applications are important as the class fills up quickly. For more information and for an application, contact Emergency Management at 352-369-8100 or e-mail MarionCERT@marionso.com.Sunday, July 20 Jazz S ociety to performThe Ocala Jazz Society will be performing on Sunday, July 20 from 2-5 p.m. at VFW Post 4781 across from Oak Run.

It would be nice to live long enough to see my great-grandchildren, but I am not pushing that issue. I am rejoicing in what I have. The best thing that I have, the thing I treasure the most, is my relationship with God. I can identify with what David said, The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want (Psalm 23:1). What David is really saying here is that when the Lord is my Shepherd, then the reality is simply, I shall not want. The other side of the picture is true as well. If I find myself constantly in want, maybe the Lord is not my Shepherd.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God F ellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

And Emma Straubs The Vacationers just might fill the bill. In it the dysfunctional Post family heads for two weeks in exotic Mallorca. On board are Jim and Franny Post celebrating their 35th anniversary. Their carefully guarded secret is that Jim is now a demoralized former breadwinner who lost his coveted job over a sexual dalliance at work and is now alienated from his wife in every significant way. Their daughter Sylvia, a recent highschool graduate, is still a virgin and wants to change that status before entering Brown in the fall. Son Bobby has money troubles hes concealing and a girlfriend whos entirely too old for him and doesnt fit into his literary family because both his parents are writers. Tagging along is Frannys longtime best friend Charles and his husband Lawrence who are trying to adopt a baby even though the odds against it are probably great. Once ensconced in the villa Franny is happily absorbed in planning activities and the daily menu: She was good at producing massive quantities of the sort of food no one noticesthe dense, dark muffins that were equally good at four p.m. as they were for breakfast; the cut-up fruit in a large bowl on the center rack of the refrigerator. She liked a house full of grazers, thinking that satisfied stomachs led to satisfied guests. All the stories are neatly arranged by dayDay One, Day Two etc. Considering the close quarters of the vacation rental, its not surprising that secrets begin peeling away and observations sharpen. From his periphery gay husband Lawrence notes that other peoples families were as mysterious as an alien species, full of secret codes and shared histories. Watching her husband Jim, Franny, too, puzzles over how little we know of each other even in families: What did anyone know about anyone else, including the person they were married to? Straub has given us characters that are neither bad nor good but altogether human. And she illuminates them with wit and loving detail. A fine summer read. Vacationers a good summer novel Bookmark Pat Wellington Heart of Florida gets grantThe American Cancer Society recently awarded a $50,000 grant to Heart of Florida Health Center (HFHC) to provide cancer awareness, education and screening for colorectal cancer to individuals in Marion County. The grant is part of a $6.4 million gift from the Walgreens Way To Well Commitment program that supports the American Cancer Societys Community Health Advocates implementing Nationwide Grants for Empowerment and Equity (CHANGE) program. The CHANGE grants help promote health equity and ensure that communities with a higher burden of cancer have equal access to education and screening resources. We are excited to be part of this unique initiative between the American Cancer Society and Walgreens because of the high need in Marion County, said HFHC Chief Executive Officer Kerrie Clark Jones. The grant will help fund HFHCs Marion County Colorectal Cancer Screening Initiative, which provides free colorectal cancer screening, in the form of fecal immunochemical tests (FIT). Individuals eligible for the program are age 50 75, uninsured and have income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The Health Resources and Services Administration has identified Marion County as a medically underserved area, as well as an area with a shortage of primary health care professionals. Between 2010 and 2012, 258 people died from colorectal cancer in Marion County, placing it in the top quartile of Florida counties for colorectal cancer mortality. According to the American Cancer Society, disparities predominantly arise from inequities in work, wealth, income, education, housing, and overall standard of living, as well as social barriers to high-quality cancer prevention, early detection and treatment services. Additionally, persons with lower socioeconomic status are more likely to experience increased cancer risks due to tobacco use, physical inactivity and poor diet due to environmental or community barriers that provide fewer opportunities for physical activity and less access to fruits and vegetables. The Society collaborates with community health partners to reach individuals in communities with high burdens of cancer and limited access to cancer screening. Through the CHANGE program, the Society provides resources to increase cancer screening rates in those communities.

The women rode home, where Lincoln allegedly rode past her house twice, making an obscene gesture and was yelling obscenities.When interviewed at his home, he allegedly told deputies he hated the woman because she kept calling law enforcement on him for riding on the roads. He said he had no intention of hitting her. Both the woman and a 9-year-old who was with her said the feared for their lives. Ray was released on $2,000 bond. ARRESTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 today through his perseverance; dedication and sacrifice; he was a Marine. Pass in review! the Adjutant ordered and the formation began to march past the reviewing stand and bleachers. Loud cheers greeted each platoon as they marched by and while the uniformed Marines who were watching maintained their military bearing; the civilians let lose with wild applause. Before long, the units were once again formed across the field from where I sat. The more than 300 graduating Marines stood silently at attention as did the cadre in and around the stands. Sensing the moment; the gallery fell silent. Even the youngsters ceased their fussing. It was then that the band struck up the familiar strains of the Marine Corp Hymn. For the brief moments that the music played; everyone stood a little straighter; everyone felt a bit prouder; and some like myself, got that familiar lump in the throat. Later as I hugged my grandson I felt more pride and love than my mere words could ever express. Fortunately, men know that about each other so we dont try; we just know. The world is a scary place; have no doubt about that. There are those who would take our way of life and our very lives if it werent for the men and women of our military. We are truly fortunate that we are defended by young men and women who are ready; willing and able to protect us. They are less than 1% of the population; those who wear the uniform of our nation. We owe them our loyalty; our support and undying gratitude. My prayer is for the safety of all our service personnel and that our leaders will have good judgment in using them. I thank you, my readers, for letting me share this experience with you.

In the top photo, from the left, are Glenn Powell, Delphine Herbert, Howard Moon and, seated, Geoffrey Stetson. In the right photo are Jan Lentz and Gail Colby.PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK When it comes to politics, I am as confused as the politicians themselves. I do not like to discuss politics because I do not understand it and just as soon as you understand one opinion, everything changes and you do not know where you are. I know I do not understand much that goes on in the political arena, but one of the things I have been hearing has to do with what they call, The Haves and the Have Nots. What do people mean when they use this phrase? Who are these Haves? And who are these Have Nots? Probably more importantly, what is it that these Haves have that the Have Nots want? The problem as I see it is simply this. If I want what somebody else has, am I really going to be happy when I have what he has? There are many things that I do not have and I am quite happy that I do not have them. I do not have an incurable disease. I do not have a debt so far above my head that I am going into bankruptcy. I do not have a table full of bills that I cannot pay. I am happy that I do not have any of these things. But as a part of the older generation, I do not really need anything that I do not have. I suppose it would be nice to have a new truck, but there is nothing wrong with my old truck. It still gets me where I want to go, the air conditioner still works and the radio still plays my kind of music. Why would I need a new truck? It probably would be nice to have a new house. At our age, my wife and I do not have the energy to pack up everything and unpack everything in a new place. As it stands, everything in our house is exactly where we want it. I choose to focus not on what I Have Not but on what I really do Have. I have a wonderful wife, but do not tell her I said so, it might get me into some kind of a situation. This year we will have been married some 43 years and why she has put up with the likes of me all this time I will never know. Actually, the fact that she has put up with me all these years brings into question her sanity. Haves, have nots and whatnots Out to Pastor Rev.

A Southwest Ocala man faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill after a dirt bike incident in which he allegedly threatened a woman and her children. According to the arrest affidavit, Daniel Ray Lincoln, 19, of Southwest 101st Place Road, allegedly road his dirt bike at a high rate of speed at the woman and four children she had with her on an unspecified road. The children got into the womans golf cart and moved it in an attempt to allow the bike to pass. However, according to the report, Lincoln rode his bike past them, missing them by inches, Dirt bike incident results in arrest Bryant re-elected BY JIM CLARK EditorCounty Commissioner Kathy Bryant can breathe a little easier as the campaign season approaches. Bryant was the only qualifier for County Commission District 2 and is therefore re-elected without opposition. Two Republicans withdrew early, and another failed to qualify last week. Qualifying ended at noon on Friday. On the Democratic side, the only announced candidate, Pamela Payton, also failed to qualify. In the District 4 race, incumbent Carl Zalak, the current chairman, drew opposition from former Commissioner Glen Fiorello. A write-in candidate, Chris Tarner, is eligible to be voted on in November, even though he wont be on the ballot, and that means that only Republicans can vote in the primary on Aug. 26. The winner will be the only one on the ballot in November. School Board races are all contested, all in the Aug. 26 primary. In District 3, incumbent Bobby James is being challenged by Jane Moerlie, Jim Touchdown and Ed Wilson. Active candidate James Hoyne did not qualify. In District 4, incumbent Angie Boynton is challenged by Chase Basinger, Jamie Bevan and Diane Schrier. In the two above races, if no one gets a total of 50 percent of the votes plus one vote, there will be a runoff between the top 2 in the November election. In District 5, incumbent Ron Crawford is being challenged by Kelly King. That race will be decided in August. School Board races are nonpartisan. In State House races, Charlie Stone and Dennis Baxley were re-elected without opposition. In the State Senate, Dorothy Hukill also had no opposition and was re-elected. PLEASESEEARREST, PAGE3 Paying a visit to Parris Island BY JOHN EVERLOVE Special to the CitizenObviously proud of the uniform she was wearing, she walked confidently onto the field in front of the nearly filled bleachers. Holding a microphone steadily in her hands she said in a clear; concise; resonant tone, Good Morning. A few people in the crowd responded meekly so she repeated her greeting more forcefully. Good morning! Everyone quickly got the message and answered in unison, Good morning. A slight smile briefly crossed her face and then she began to speak. I am Brigadier General Lori Reynolds, Commanding General; Marine Corp Recruit Training; Parris Island South Carolina. The occasion for our meeting was the flag raising ceremony at 8 a.m. in front of the Base Headquarters. As General Reynolds pointed out in her remarks; it is a ceremony that occurs daily on each Marine Base and at 170 embassies around the world. Pointing out 5 young Marines holding the large Garrison Flag, Gen. Reynolds reminded each of us in the audience that for over nearly 240 years the nation has trusted the Marines to make sure that our flag is defended and protected and that the ideals for which it stands are upheld and supported. Speaking on behalf of the Marines on this day; she assured the crowd; the Marines will always protect the flag and the Nation it represents. Everyone stood and the band sounded The Star Spangled Banner. With ease and grace Old Glory glided to the top of its staff. A slight breeze caught the red, white and blue material blowing it free from the lanyard and pole. The huge flag extended to its full length and breadth as if returning the salute of the several hundred people standing at attention beneath it.
