Four weeks ago soccers World Cup began in Brazil. It ends this Sunday with the championship match. So far, major casualties of the tournament included reigning champion Spain as well as other major European nations Italy, England, Portugal and the host team Brazil. Pun Alley takes us to the soccer pitch with some passable stories you should get a kick out of.Adult directionsAt one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old soccer players aside and asked, Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is? The little boy nodded in the affirmative. Do you understand that what matters is not whether we win or lose, but how we play together as a team? The little boy nodded yes. So, the coach continued, I am sure you know, when a penalty is called, you should not argue, curse, attack the referee, or call him bad names. Do you understand all that? Again the little boy nodded. He continued, And when I call you off the field so that another boy gets a chance to play, its not good sportsmanship to call your coach an idiot, is it? Again the little boy nodded. Good, said the coach. Now go over there and explain all that to your father.Rolling alongIn England a soccer manager, i.e., coach, was wheeling his shopping cart across the supermarket parking lot when he noticed an old lady struggling with her cart. He stopped and asked, Can you manage dear? The old lady replied, No way you got yourself into this mess, dont ask me to sort it out!Half thereA rather dim-witted fan arrived at a soccer game midway through the second half. Whats the score? he asked his friend as he settled into his seat. Nil-nil, came the reply. And what was the score at half time? he asked.Left back?Dad, dad! cried Philip, as he arrived home one evening. I think Ive been selected for the school soccer team. Thats good, said his father. But why do you only think youve been selected? Arent you sure? What position are you playing? Well, replied Philip, its not been announced officially, but I overheard the soccer coach tell my teacher that if I were in the team Id be a great draw-back.Short kicksSoccer is a game where 22 big, strong players run around like crazy for 90 minutes while 80,000 people who really need the exercise sit in the stands and watch them. Cinderella got kicked off the soccer team because she ran away from the ball. Soccer players do well in studies in school because they know how to use their heads. While some of the games in Brazil were in very humid areas none were in the jungle because there are too many cheetahs. A soccer match always lights up a soccer stadium.Hear hearOne of the most important things a soccer referee has to do is to communicate properly. A referee having problems with this took a communications course at a local community college. Having completed the course, he said the professor was a strange fellow. He told me that the first assignment was to put 10 marbles in my mouth and then give a speech. This would force me to concentrate on speaking clearly and carefully. After I completed that assignment, I could take one marble out of my mouth for the next assignment. This process continued. When I lost all my marbles, I was ready to referee.WinnerTaken away from the TV by a long phone call in the second half of the first U.S. World Cup game, Elliot asked his wife to watch and tell him who won. When the game ended, his wife walked into his study. What was the score? he asked, covering the mouthpiece. It was 2 to 1. Oh, man! Who won? She said, Two did.The finishDuring the World Cup qualifiers the goalie from Finland had never had his father see him play for the national team. When his father did get to watch him, several players arranged a banquet at a restaurant. In addition to the entire team and staff, several local dignitaries attended with the entire tab being picked up by the Finland goalie. It was a huge success. The next day the local newspaper reported that it was certainly a dinner worthy of the father, son and the goalie host.

If the borders were open that is, if the natural right to be free of aggression were respected children would not need to be entrusted to shady men who can extort large sums of money on the promise to transport the children to the United States. Without government agents hunting them, children and parents could move north together in freedom and safety. They would be welcomed by generous humanitarian organizations, as immigrants were in the past. Also, if the U.S. government did not prosecute a violent war on drug makers and users, and did not push the war on Latin American governments, those children would be safer to start with. Many children leave today because of drug-related violence, or for fear of being impressed into drug gangs. But, many people ask, how can we handle all these kids? Who will pay? Under the welfare state, unfortunately the taxpayers will pay. This is what leads many people to oppose open borders. No freedom of movement, they say, until the welfare state goes. The problem is that the welfare state will never go if it is saved from all stresses and strains. While immigrants dont use the welfare system as much as people think, free immigration might help bring the end of government transfers. Private aid would take their place. Even today, Americans are humanitarian enough to finance care for these children if people did not assume the government would do it. In other words, the welfare state is morally corrupting.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 28 E The Environmental Magazine Dear E arthT alk: I ve heard that, above and beyond our bad eating and lifestyle habits, some chemicals in everyday products are contributing to the obesity problem. Can you explain? Alyssa Israel, Fairfield, CT Obesity is a huge problem in the U.S. and other industrialized countries. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity rates have doubled for American adults and tripled for kids and teenagers aged six through 19 since 1980. Today, 31 percent of American adults and 15 percent of youngsters are classified as overweight. The rise in obesity and related health problems like diabetes is usually attributed to an abundance of high-calorie food coupled with the trend toward a more sedentary lifestyle, but there is more to the story. A growing number of researchers believe that certain chemicals collectively known as obesogens may be a contributing factor to the growing obesity epidemic. Exposure to these chemicals has been shown to interfere with the way we metabolize fat, leading to obesity despite otherwise normal diet and exercise. Bruce Blumberg, a biology professor at the University of California at Irvine, first coined the term obesogen in 2006 after discovering that certain tin-based compounds known as organotins predisposed lab mice to weight gain. In the intervening years, hundreds of research studies have found similar connections between weight gain in humans and exposure to organotins as well as several other common chemicals found in everyday consumer products, agricultural pesticides and even some drinking water. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) reports that as many as 20 synthetic chemicalsfrom the BPA in plastic food storage containers and the lining of cans to phthalates used in the manufacture of non-stick coatings to the parabens in many personal care productshave been shown to cause weight gain in humans, mostly from exposure in utero or as infants. These early effects can last a lifetime, permanently altering ones metabolic set points for gaining weight. If you have more fat cells and propensity to make more fat cells, and if you eat the typical high-carbohydrate, high-fat diet we eat [in the U.S.], you probably will get fat, Blumberg tells the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. Adult exposure to obesogens has also been shown to trigger weight gain and other endocrine issues while exacerbating the effects of earlier exposure. Certain pharmaceuticals (including some of the most commonly prescribed antidepressants) have been found to be particularly egregious in this regard. Meanwhile, nicotine, air fresheners and many household cleaning products also contain obesogens. Also, soybeans (consumed by both humans and the livestock we eat) contain a naturally occurring obesogen. There may not be much we can do about the damage already done, but avoiding obesogens, whether from natural or synthetic, might be the best thing we can do to prevent making our obesity, hypertension, diabetes and other health problems that much worse. Says Blumberg: Eat organic, filter water, minimize plastic in your lifeIf theres no benefit and some degree of risk, why expose yourself and your family? Of course, avoiding obesogens alone wont keep people from getting fat. Eating a nutritious diet and getting regular exercise are as important as ever to keep ones weight and overall health in check.CONTACTS: NIEHS, www.niehs.nih.gov; Obesogens: An Environmental Link to Obesity, Environmental Health Perspectives, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PM C3279464/.E arthT alk is written and edited by R oddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E T he E nvironmental Magazine ( www emagazine. com).

Its not paid work that is responsible. Some think that to be considered important and valuable, they need to keep busy. They take on too many projects of all kinds which leaves them little time to just vegetate by relaxing by the pool or walking in Shalom Parks Nature trails and/or labyrinth. Over committing to projects, even fulfilling, worthwhile ones, leaves a person depleted. Learn to schedule fewer each day. We should take advantage of our ability to have as much down time as we need or want.

If you want to see pictures of the fun, go to the Marion Oaks Civic Association and hit the tab that says photos and you News from Marion Oaks COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenVirtually all commentary about the influx of unaccompanied Central American children into the United States, which some say could rise to 90,000 this year, misses the point: no government has the moral authority to capture these kids and send them back to the miserable situations they have escaped. This claim will strike many people as outrageous. So I ask, Where does government get the moral authority Im not talking about legal power to apprehend and detain human beings of any age who have committed aggression against no one? There is no such authority. These children are human beings. Whether they are coming here to be with family or to escape danger, they have the same natural rights as Americans have. Our rights can be expressed in many ways, but they boil down to just one: the right to be free of aggression. We have this right not by virtue of being American, but by virtue of being human. It is a natural, not national, right, so these young Hondurans, Salvadorans, and Guatemalans have it too. Locking them up and deporting them should offend Americans, who claim to believe in the natural right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. (Did the Fourth of July have any meaning, or was it just a day off from work?) For some strange reason, immigration makes people forget about freedom their sense of freedom gets overwhelmed by their deference to the state and national sovereignty. Thats why most people think securing the borders, as Barack Obama is doing, is more important than the welfare of poor people born on the other side of those borders (especially the southern border). I say strange because volumes of evidence show that the influx of people from other lands and cultures is also good for the people already here. We need not fear newcomers. It takes initiative and courage to pick yourself up, leave the only home and culture youve known, and journey to a new land. Those qualities also lead people to become entrepreneurs and engage in innovation. But even immigrants who dont start successful businesses still render valuable services as they strive to make better lives. If this is not obvious to most Americans, it may be because the illegal status forces people without government papers to work in the shadows. That status also leaves them vulnerable to horrible exploitation by people who can threaten to call the immigration authorities if their commands are not obeyed. That appalling condition is reason enough to legalize the so-called illegals. Speaking of exploitation, the perilous conditions that unaccomMoral authority and the immigrant kids PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE29

The father abused the family and Pat thought his father would kill him one day. In real life, his father was meaner than in the book and movie. Last year, Pat wrote another book which is titled, The Death of Santini. This 1979 film tells the story of a Marine officer whose military success contrasts with his shortcomings as a father and husband. It starred Robert Duvall and Blythe Danner. A great way to spend a hot summer afternoon.OTOW Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions Club held its installation dinner for officers on June 24. The induction was conducted at the Oasis Restaurant by Incoming-Governor of Lions District 35-L Robert Melnick.

It was explained, that every resident of OTOW is automatically a member. There are no dues and monthly meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month at the Arbor Conference Center suite A at 9:30 a.m. However; there are no meetings in July or August .because so many residents are away. If you have a suggestion for a future trip, you can make it to any board member. They work very hard planning the trips, however; many day trips are booked over 18 months in advance so we can get good seats. So if they feel your suggestion would be of interest it may have to wait a while before it could be booked.

Friday, July 11, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 11, 2014 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your Aries leadership qualities can help bring order out of all that confusion, whether its on the job or in the home. But be careful to guide, not goad, others into following you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Applying a more personal view to a joblinked issue could help provide better insight into those persistent problems. Use your keen Taurean logic to cut through the double-talk. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Taking some time off could be the way to get through that endless round of demands. Youll return refreshed, ready to tackle things from a new perspective. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Restoring a sagging professional relationship takes a lot of effort. By all means, state your position. But also make sure you pay close attention to the other persons point of view. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A hot prospect intrigues the Big Cat, who is always on the prowl for a promising investment. But be careful that this promise has a chance of being kept. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A friend could use some of your compassion and concern. If he or she doesnt ask for help, be sure you make the first move. Check out a new career possibility. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might have difficulty getting your opinions heard because of all the noise being made by the other side. But hang in there. Others should line up with you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Offering to help a colleague is commendable. But before you commit your time and effort, check to see if that persons situation is all that he or she has led you to believe it is. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You soon should be seeing positive results from your recent efforts on behalf of a family member. On another matter, check that you have all the facts regarding a job assignment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your aspects favor closer family relationships this week. Take time for visits, whether in person, by phone, by mail or in cyberspace. Let them know how important they are to you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A missed opportunity isnt always a negative. Maybe instincts are telling you not to rush into something you thought was worthwhile. Make time for family this weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your sense of humor helps you get through a tricky situation. But some stick-inthe-muds might not be so willing to make changes that you and others agree are necessary. BY HAROLD PEASE, PH. D Special to the CitizenI awoke on a Sunday morning where I was visiting, a ray of light coming through the window. The window view showed side-byside symbols; one of liberty, as represented by a small community of multi-colored and multishaped living structures with residents going about their business oblivious to the second symbol, represented by large, grey, ugly, windowless government buildings spying on and recording everyones communication. The contrast of liberty and totalitarian intent was startling and breathtaking. To the far left of the window view was a new housing development intruding into largely undeveloped land, like an extending finger, with brown hills above it and a large hay farm in front and below stretching far forward and to the right of my view. Here residents made choices that enhanced the quality and comfort of their lives largely free from total government spying and restrictionor so they thought. The number of churches to the population seemed unusually high, five church steeples reaching skyward, as if begging for the influence of God in their community, in what looked to be no more than 300 structures, mostly apartments, as seen from my windowall within a mile of where I was. I attended one of the churches and was greeted with the opening song America the Beautiful, the classic patriotic tune words written by Katherine Lee Bates and music by Samuel A. Ward. It housed the favorite words America! America! followed by four phrases in four verses God shed his grace on thee, and, God mend thine every flaw, and, May God thy gold refine, and again, God shed his grace on thee. Obviously, these Christians loved their liberty. A similar tune representing a relationship between God, country and liberty could have been found throughout most of the country the Sunday before the 4th of July. In stark contrast off in the distance about two miles, but still clearly visible from the left side of the same window, was the most profound symbol of big government everthe new NSA spy center, the largest in the world, capable of holding a yottabyte of information collected from every person on earth, some say, for generations to come. These enormous, ugly, grey, windowless, buildings perched on a hill with intimidating guard-houses restricting entrance, represented potential total control of the actions and thoughts of every human. What is different about the Bluffdale, Utah spy center from other such centers in the United States is that the government does not deny that it specifically targets its own citizens. Much has been published on NSA government spying of its own people and LibertyUnderFire.org has published on this topic two previous articles, so nothing new is found in this one. A project began under George W. Bush and accelerated under Barack Obama, Bluffdale is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the worlds communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital pocket litter (The NSA Is Building the Countrys Biggest Spy Center. Watch What You Say.) The project was code named Stellar Wind. Fortunately the secret is out Sometime back, I wrote about the lawsuit over payments from the School Board to the city, noting that both were tax-supported by Marion County residents. Now here we go again. At last weeks County Commission meeting, there was a discussion about possibly suing the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice over some payments that had not been made to the county. Both the county and the DJJ are tax-supported agencies, which once again means that Im suing me to get my money that Ive already paid in state taxes and fees. I just dont understand these government entities who are so wrapped up in their own finances that they fail to recognize that theyre fooling around with our money. And when its all over, the only people getting rich are the attorneys. My plea is that all elected officials take time to cut down the silly spending which drives the budget, and ultimately our taxes, up. And if they dont remember that, then we need to remind them at the ballot box. Theres no law that says we have to vote for incumbents in the primary on Aug. 26. Lets get rid of the suspension of impact fees in Marion County. Think of the millions we could make that way, millions that weve given away over recent years. Some say that would stifle growth. I say that stifling growth is a good thing. Its out of control in Marion County, with developers from out of the area coming in and getting approval to build whenever and wherever they want, with our government watchdogs just watching, not acting. Next Tuesday go to the countys zoning hearing at 2 p.m. on the day of the County Commission meeting. Youll see how people pleading to slow down extra development in their areas of the county are politely listened to by the commissioners, then ignored. It seems as if our County Commission never met a development it didnt like. The western part of the county seems particularly susceptible to the developers. Theres a little bit of evidence west of Interstate 75 in the northwestern part of the county, but the biggest problems is the southwest. If you dont believe me, take a casual ride out State Road 200. Of course, if you try to drive anything less than 55 in a 50 mph zone, youll get run over by the big pickup trucks and large SUVs that are always in a hurry to get somewhere. The understaffed law enforcement agencies cant be everywhere, but it does seem to me that if we hire three deputies and have them exclusively work as a traffic unit on 200, the resulting fines and fees would more than pay for them and their cars very quickly. Our experience in watching the cars shoot past us is that a bunch of those fines and fees would be paid by Citrus County and out-of-state residents. And thats what we should be doing across the board. Dont increase government anywhere unless theres a way to pay for that isnt coming out of the average residents pocket. So we urge you to stay informed. County Commission candidates are scheduled to be part of the State Road 200 Coalition meeting Monday at TimberRidge. Go ahead and attend and ask important questions.

Do not use any other word processing programs. Remember, folks: The government likes paper, and it likes the United States Postal Service. If it wants your information, it wants it in writing, with supporting documentation and sometimes in triplicate, and it wants to send a government employee to let you know about it. With that in mind, if you get a phone call or email from someone claiming to work for the court system and pumping you for personal information, your defenses should go up. Those types of emails and phone calls are becoming more common as identity thieves look for new ways to target the nave. Of late, citizens across the nation have reported being contacted by people posing as government employees, threatening arrest unless the target coughs up their Social Security number and credit card or bank account information for nonpayment of various alleged infractions. If this happens to you, dont believe it and dont stand for it. If any phone call makes you suspicious, hang up and call back. You wont hurt any feelings, but you could save yourself a lot of trouble. If its allegedly from your bank, call and ask to speak to a supervisor. If its from a government agency, call that agency and verify that they attempted to contact you. If its from a business, call the relevant chamber of commerce and check them out. Lastly, call the police if warranted; Impersonation of a government employee is a felony in most cases, and a crime law enforcement agencies take very seriously. So you know: Residents can contact the clerks jury department directly at 352-671-5581. If residents encounter scams, they should write down as much information about the encounter as possible, and contact the Marion County Sheriffs Office at 352-732-8181.Citrus County ChronicleS UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Wellcrafted and genuine, it deals with fully human characters who are unpretentious and resolutely middle class. In clear, unvarnished prose the author chronicles the cruel disease affecting 35 million people worldwide and the fictional Reimer family specifically. Saul Reimer is a crusty patriarch with a wicked sense of humor only his diary records. His first-person perspective is the novels most ambitious characteristic. s Early on, in a lucid moment Saul describes his condition as he sees it: My brain is like a shortwave radio, mostly static that occasionally finds the station, but even then the sound isnt always clear. His intellectual deterioration is gradual and believable and so are the reactions to it from his familydutiful wife Monique and adult children Joey and Florence. Joey, somewhat self-centered, is slow to offer needed support whereas sister Florencelike her namesake Nightingalesacrifices her personal life to be on hand almost 24/7. Advising Monique about what to expect next is Alzheimers specialist Dr. Tremblay whose observations provide an informative background about the various stages of the disease the decline from confusion and denial to complete loss of cognitive function. Though frequently exhausted and irritated at her querulous charge, Monique is compassionate. One day looking at a vase of flowers past their prime she thinks, Today, for the first time, I realized the obvious. That as each petal falls, a flower loses a part of its life. And thats whats happening to Saul. Bit by bit, he is losing parts of himself, and eventually, when all the petals fall he will be nothing. At the same time, shes often conflicted, wanting to cling to her dying husband, yet wanting him released from his suffering. And, inevitably, there are private moments of self-pity: Saul may be the one with Alzheimers, but Im the one suffering a long and miserable life. Dr. Tremblay believes the caregiver-spouse often goes through torment, agony, and especially guilt until he or she cant take it anymore before admitting the loved one to a facility. Eric Rills thoughtful insights may comfort those dealing with this dreaded form of dementia.

and the public has known about their government spying on them for well over a year, some much longer. Even the ill informed make government surveillance jokes, but still the collection continues. It is as though everyone is in denial. It is as though the revelations of the last two years could not really be real. No one is really being arrested or punished for their thoughts. Yet. The noose is not tight. And what is a yottabyte of information anyway? The size description is incomprehensible adding to brain overload. A yottabyte is 1,000 zettabytes (the number 1 followed by 24 zeros 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,00 0,000). That scientists, computer engineers, and other staff work in secret on the cryptanalytic applications of high-speed computing and other classified projects (Cryptome, March 16, 2012, NSA Decryption Multipurpose Research Facility), making what is now happening possible, merely adds to the incomprehensiveness of the subject. Monday morning the same light flooded the room. The same symbols of liberty and oppression lay in stark contrast below. The same five church steeples reach for the sky as though to appeal to God for His influence. The same residents drive by, perhaps the greatest symbol of totalitarianism of all time, on their way to work, as though it does not exist. Some may even work at this place to help give the government details on their neighbor. Everything about this ugly, windowless, grey structure violates the Constitution. Chances are those of the community next door that sing of freedom will return to office the same Democrats and Republicans that authorized and funded their surveillance. I closed the window. If I too ignore what it shows, it will go away. Right?Dr. Harold Pease is an expert on the United States Constitution.

Allie Gore, LWV of Marion CountyHobby LobbyIts poetic justice that the far left actually lost the Hobby Lobby case in 1987. Thats when President Reagan nominated distinguished jurist Robert Bork to the Supreme Court. Ted Kennedy and his minions slandered Bork and defeated the nomination. (The term Borking rose from those vicious tactics.) So Reagan nominated Anthony Kennedy, who is still on the Court. Bork died in December 2012. Had Bork served on the court until his death, President Obama would have put one of his liberal lackeys on the Court, and Hobby Lobby would have lost the case. By the way, Kennedy would have voted with the liberals on the court if the fine for noncompliance hadnt been so steep. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 makes it illegal to place a substantial economic burden on people like Hobby Lobbys owners. The fine of $1.3 million per day, or about $475 million per year, certainly meets this criteria. So be careful, libs, who you slander; it could and did backfire. Al Shumard Oak RunNot a chiefAlthough the letter concerning the Redskin nickname was well thought out and very insightful, there was one common mistake referenced that is universally made when it comes to Geronimo, the great Apache warrior. He was a great fighter and warrior of the Chiricahuas, but was never a chief. Its like people believing that Humphrey Bogart said play it again Sam in Casablanca. However, my observation is not to detract from the excellent facts and opinions put forth. Jim Hacker On Top Of The World LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Imust confess to a severe case of poverty. I never took a vow of poverty; it just seems to have worked out that way for me. I am so poor the church mice have packed their bags and moved on. If I knew where they moved to, I might join them. Being poor can have its advantages, but I have yet to run across any. I am so poor I am not able to pay attention, especially when watching some television program with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. This has caused no small problem with my wife. We love an evening of unwinding before the TV watching some of our favorite programs. I must confess those programs are getting fewer and fewer each year. Soon we are going to have to go back to reading books. Together we will be watching a program, and when I say we, I do it with certain modifications. My wife will get up and go to the kitchen for something and when she returns, she asks me a question, What happened? I look at her with one of my infamous quizzical looks and respond, Where? Have a blessed day; now fire me if you dare! She then explains she is talking about what happened on the TV program while she was away. I then tell her, Im sorry, I wasnt paying attention. This seems to be a source of real frustration for her. If you cant afford to pay attention, she will say sarcastically while rolling her eyes, couldnt you at least rent some attention some time? I tried explaining to her that old age is making me a little more forgetful. She, however, is not buying it, so there goes my income stream. For me, watching television is not an obsession; it is more like a distraction. I do not follow every little bit on the television screen. For me it is not a matter of life or death, it is just a matter of recreation. I know that nothing on TV is real. We can be in the middle of the next program and I do not realize that the first program has ended. Talk about confusing! When something does catch my attention, boy does it have my attention. Did you, I ask my wife, hear that? Then it is role reversal in prime time. I will not say she acts like me, just that it comes pretty close to it. Not quite Oscar material, but close. What? She said with a very confused look on her face. So I had to explain the news story that I just happened to catch. I do not know all of the details, I was not paying that much attention, just that someone was fired from their job for saying to a customer, Have a blessed day. I have met many customer service people that said things that I would want them to be fired from, but this has never been on my list. My wife then asked the question I was thinking. What is wrong with telling someone to have a blessed day? I could not figure it out. It is like at Christmas time some places do not want their employees to say to the customer, Merry Christmas. The reasoning is, it might offend someone. What about us who are offended when somebody does Out to Pastor Rev.

Reverend Michael Sims and Reverend Jennifer Jen Harner Sims are a husband and wife team. They have one son, Luke, who is 5 years old. Both graduated from Duke Divinity School where they met and graduated in 2004. Both have Masters of Divinity Degrees. Both are Elders in Full connection in the Florida Conference and have been Pastoring in the Florida Conference for 10 years. Reverend Michael has served as Senior Pastor of Tice UMC in Fort Myers from 2004 to 2006. He was reappointed to Trinity UMC in Jensen Beach. Pastor Jen has served as senior pastor of First UMC of Pahokee from 2004 to 2005. Early in 2005 she joined the pastoral ministry team at the United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches. Pastor Michael serves on the Board of the Florida United Methodist Childrens Home; and, Pastor Jen frequently leads retreats, speaks at conferences, and is currently engaged in several writing projects. Pastor Michael and Pastor Jen along with their son enjoy a very active lifestyle. They enjoy family adventures, travel, and being involved in the community. They look forward to getting to know you and your story. They also look forward to hearing how God is calling us to pray for, strengthen, support, and engage OWUMCs ministries and mission to the greater Ocala community. They believe that together, and through the power of Gods Spirit, that God will bless and strengthen our church and greater community. The Sims started their mission at OWUMC the first of July with their first worship service being July 6. Meanwhile, a fond farewell was extended to Pastor Alan Jefferson, his wife Jo, and also to Carol Mack-Harrell on Sunday, June 29, at a luncheon reception in the Fellowship Hall of Ocala West United Methodist church at 9330 SW 105th St. The several hundred people who attended the farewell luncheon had an opportunity to chat individually with the Jeffersons and Mack-Harrell to offer their best wishes as they begin a new chapter in their respective ministry careers. Members of the congregation honored them with a monetary donation as well as many best wishes cards. Reverend Jefferson, after three years as senior pastor of Ocala West UMC, will be the new pastor at the First United Methodist Church in Bartow, near Lakeland.

BY JASON ALDERMAN Special to the CitizenIf you always stop to read the fine print before signing anything, congratulations your parents trained you well. If you dont, beware: Your signature could commit you to a long-term gym membership you dont really want, an apartment you cant afford or worst of all, paying off someone elses loan you cosigned. Broadly defined, contracts are mutually binding agreements between two or more parties to do or not do something. It could be as simple as buying coffee (you pay $3 and the restaurant agrees to serve you a drinkable beverage), or as complex as signing a 30-year mortgage. Once a contract is in force it generally cannot be altered unless all parties agree. And, with very few exceptions (e.g., if deception or fraud took place), contracts cannot easily be broken. Before you enter a contractual agreement, try to anticipate everything that might possibly go wrong. For example: After youve leased an apartment you decide you cant afford the rent or dont like the neighborhood. Your roommate moves out, leaving you responsible for the rest of the lease. You finance a car you cant afford, but when you try to sell, its worth less than your outstanding loan balance. You buy a car and only later notice that the sales agreement includes an extended warranty or other features you didnt verbally authorize. You sign a payday loan without fully understanding the terms and end up owing many times the original loan amount. You buy something on sale and dont notice the stores No returns on sale items policy. You click I agree to a websites privacy policy and later realize youve given permission to share your personal information. You buy a two-year cell phone plan, but after the grace period ends, discover that you have spotty reception and it will costs hundreds of dollars to buy your way out. Cosigning a loan can be particularly risky. If the other person stops making payments, youre responsible for the full amount, including late fees or collection costs. Not only will your credit rating suffer, but the creditor can use the same collection methods against you as against the primary borrower, including suing you or garnishing your wages. Still, there may be times you want to cosign a loan to help out a relative or friend. The Federal Trade Commissions handy guide, Co-signing a Loan, shows precautions to take before entering such agreements (www.consumer.ftc.gov). A few additional reminders: Ensure that everything you were promised verbally appears in writing. Make sure all blank spaces are filled in or crossed out before signing any documents including the tip line on restaurant and hotel bills. Dont be afraid to ask to take a contract home for more careful analysis or to get a second opinion. A lawyer or financial adviser can help. Dont be pressured into signing anything. If salespeople try that tactic, walk away. (Be particularly wary at timeshare rental meetings.) Keep copies of every document you sign. This will be especially important for contested rental deposits, damaged merchandise, insurance claims, extended warranties, etc. Take along a wingman if youre making an important decision like renting an apartment or buying a car to help ask questions and protect your interests. Be wary of free trial offers. Read all terms and conditions and pay particular attention to pre-checked boxes in online offers. Bottom line: Contracts protect both parties. Just make sure you fully understand all details before signing on the dotted line.Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

This matter of being offended can go both ways. There should be an equal offended person law. There is a law for everything else. I just would like to meet the person who is offended by somebody saying to them, Have a blessed day. Later that evening I was watching a new crime/detective story on TV and all of a sudden, I heard some words that were offensive. They were saying curse words that I have never heard on TV before. I have always believed that if you have to use curse words, it is because your vocabulary is drastically lacking in intellectual responses to the world around you. Here is my dilemma. Why can you say curse words on TV, which everybody knows is scripted, but you cannot say, Have a blessed day, without getting fired? If I was in business I would want my employees to greet my clients with a cheerful, Have a blessed day and not some awful curse words. I was complaining about this to a friend of mine who explained to me that curse words on television are considered literary license. Who is paying for that license I am wondering. All of this has to do with the PC syndrome in our country today. The problem is what was PC yesterday is no longer PC today. Who knows what tomorrows PC will be. What I cannot accept is the fact that being crude and rude is PC and saying something nice is not. Have we reverted to the caveman mentality? Is being nice is no longer acceptable behavior? I like what David says, Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name (Psalms 103:1). Perhaps the reason people are offended by that phrase is because they know that only God has the power to bless. If I am being blessed by God, I am going to turn around and bless people around me. So, for those offended by that phrase let me say, Have a blessed day. And fire me if you dare.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

All of us at Cherrywood thank you Holly for your dedication and commitment. Our community is a better place to live because of you.Summer cancellationsThere are no Veterans Club meetings for July and August but they will return on Sept. 4 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. Our fitness expert Deb Rivera will be on vacation from July 28 until Aug. 4 so mark your calendars. We wish her a safe and happy holiday.Back to schoolWe will be collecting school supplies for needy kids from now until August. Youll find a large donation box inside our clubhouse and we encourage all of our residents and friends in the neighborhood to contribute. These youngsters need everything from back packs to crayons. Were asking for notebooks; essay books; pens; paper; erasers; scissors; pencils; rulers and just about everything you can think of thats school related. Starting off the school year with the right supplies helps youngsters begin the school year with a positive attitude and thats what we want for your young people. They are our future so anything we can do to help is worthwhile. The box is beginning to fill and if we all just donate a few items per week; it will soon be packed to capacity. Wouldnt that be terrific?Reading PalsDo you miss reading stories to your grandchildren? Would you like to make a difference in the life of a little girl or boy? Well, we have a program here in Marion County that will match you up with a Reading pal and the program will brighten both of your lives. Reading Pal matches a volunteer with a kindergarten age student. For one hour a week over the 26week project; you will meet in the school library and read to one another. You will be given a book that the student gets to keep after youve read it so these young readers can start building their own personal library. Most of these children dont have anyone at home to read with them so learning new words and having their imaginations inspired opens a whole new world for them. There is a short training class to attend so you will get guidelines and support. In other words, you wont be going in cold to these reading sessions. Reading is the one basic skill that all other skills are based on. If you can help a child read; they will be able to accomplish anything from becoming a surgeon to flying in space. You can become a Reading Pal or get more information on this program by calling Jan Hathaway at 352-732-9696 extension 212. We need about 70 volunteers and youll be placed in a school near your home so you wont have a long drive. Call Jan today; make a difference in a childs life forever.New residents to be welcomedIf you are new to the Cherrywood community, we would like to invite you to an informal meet and greet on Saturday, Aug. 9. Come to the clubhouse at 9:30 and enjoy coffee; donuts and conversation as well as receiving some helpful information. You will be given some maps and other literature that will help you navigate not only the Cherrywood neighborhood but also the area around us and all of Marion County. Learn about various services; hospitals; shopping; and more. All of us were new at one time and we know how difficult it can be to learn about your new surroundings. In addition youll meet some of the leaders of the various committees and programs here at Cherrywood. These people will be able to answer your questions about the many varied activities that we have to offer from fitness to horseshoes; from dances to dinners and everything in between. Make it a point to contact Geri and let her know that youll be attending. The very worst you can get out of this welcoming committee project is a great cup of coffee and a few delicious donuts. See you there.Flu shotsDont forget to come to the clubhouse on Sept. 5 for your flu shot. Inoculations will be given from 1 until 3 p.m. by the professional staff. You may want to call Geri and get your name on the list, no appointments necessary, the professional staff from VaxCare will you get in and out without delay. We want all of our residents healthy and happy so dont miss your flu shot.From the reporterSeveral months ago we used to do an article on people of interest here in Cherrywood. For this weeks edition we are reviving that tradition to introduce you to Sarah and Frank Blair. Sarah is the new secretary for the Veterans Club; chair of the welcoming committee and president of the Cribbage Club. Sarah and her husband Frank moved to Ocala just over three years ago to care for both Sarahs and Franks mothers who lived in the area. During their home search they saw the cleanliness and neatness of Cherrywood and were impressed. Their prospective neighbors welcomed them warmly and when they found out how many activities we have here they were hooked. Sarah is a veteran of the U.S. Army and has worked in the financial services of the corporate world for over 15 years. When she married Frank she joined him in his profession as an over the road trucker. The loving couple have been married 22 years and have two children; one each from previous marriages. Sarah has a son James Brown living in California and Frank has a son, Franklin Lee Blair living in Terre Haute, Indiana. Two grandchildren, Alyessa, 9, and Adrionne, 7, are the apple of their eye. Because of Sarah and Franks influence, two of Sarahs sisters are relocating to Florida. In spite of the miles they remained a close knit family group and now they will be able to share holidays and fun times together. Sarah is an expert organizer crediting her military and private sector experience. In the financial services profession for nearly 15 years; her assignments required continuous training and expert skills to coordinate meetings as well as keeping accurate records. In addition to the skills she obtained with her career; Sarah has attended Champlain College and Monterey Peninsular College. Unknown to most people she is also an accomplished pianist and vocalist. She used to entertain her Mom; playing the piano and singing her favorite songs. Sarah now sings in her Church choir. Being a relative newcomer to our community herself, Sarah will be an excellent co-chair for the Welcoming Committee. She is all too aware of how easily people can become lost when looking for various stores and services in our area. She is also familiar with the many activities and fun events that Cherrywood has to offer. Being an avid card player, Sarah ably sets up the tournaments and playing schedules for our Cribbage Club. It is her dynamic personality and sense of humor that has caused that club to gain in popularity and participation. Sarah worked on the recent Veterans Golf Tournament and was an active volunteer with the Memorial Day observance. Her dedication and varied abilities will be a great asset to the Veterans Club as she takes over the post of secretary on the Executive Board. We warmly welcome Sarah to her new post. If you have suggestions or comments concerning the Cherrywood Section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I welcome hearing from you. Nearly 250 residents and guests packed the clubhouse and surrounding grounds on Saturday, July 2 to enjoy a wonderful meal; hear some fantastic music and to salute the veterans. This was the second of our four scheduled 100 Days of Summer celebrations and it was a great evening of socializing for all concerned. Geri was our hostess for the festivities representing Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management who sponsor all of our 100 Days of Summer events. Always charming, she called up the tables to the buffet and directed the drawings for door prizes and 50/50 drawings. Our Social Committee volunteers did an outstanding job of preparing the serving line and getting the large crowd through in just a little over 30 minutes. That was quite a feat in and of itself; requiring a great organization and planning. The Northern Sounds band played a wide variety of songs getting people on to the dance floor early and keeping them late. At 7 p.m. they began their Salute to Veterans with the tune God Bless America. This was followed by the playing of the Armed Forces Medley which resulted in resounding cheers. Bill Huff, a Marine veteran, was assisted to his feet by his wife Wanda when the Marines Hymn sounded. This resulted in loud applause because Bill has been in ill health lately. Having him and Wanda there was a special treat for every one who know and love them. The band struck up the song, When the Saints Go Marching In, and Charlene led a long line of revelers who danced around the room in procession. It gave new meaning to the term Line Dancing. Charlene is a valued member of our popular Line Dancing class. Everyone who attended had a terrific time. The chicken dinner was superb and the music top notch. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who participated in the planning and funding for this wonderful night.Comedy NightOn Monday, Aug. 4, comedian and hypnotist Larry Silver will be on stage at our clubhouse for two great shows. Larry has a long resume of appearances including cruise ships to night clubs; TV shows to celebrity functions and everything in between. You wont want to miss this world class talent. Described as HypnoLarryous, Larry will be appearing at 5:30 and 7:30 so that we might accommodate the expected large crowd. Youll be laughing at not only his jokes but at the demonstrations of his hypnotic abilities. He is a riot to see in action. Enjoy snacks, iced tea, and lemonade along with your show. Of course you are welcome to bring your own libations if you wish. There will also be door prizes and 50/50 drawings for everyone to take part in. This promises to be a great night of comedic entertainment so get your free tickets from Geri in the office and mark your calendars. This event is sponsored by Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management.TriviaOn July 16, Richard Hurley will take over the big screen in the clubhouse to test the knowledge of those brave souls who would venture into Trivia Night at Cherrywood. The subject for that evening will be Liberties; and you can bet that Rich will take liberties with the subject. Trivia is fun and easy to play. Shortly before 7 p.m. you show up at the clubhouse and pay $1 to enter. If you have 3 or 4 people with you and would like to play as a team, you are more than welcome to do that. If not, you will be assigned a team to play with. Each team has an answer sheet. All team members try to answer the questions that are put up on the big screen. At the end of the game, answer sheets are swapped between the teams and the winners get a small cash prize. More importantly, the wining team gets bragging rights for the whole month. This is basically a very informal and fun time where people get to enjoy friendly competition and enjoy each others company socially. One of the neat things about this game is that the proceeds go to support our Patriot Dog Project so youre having fun plus helping a worth cause. Join us for a night of fun and knowledge on Wednesday, July 16 at 7 p.m.August Summer FestOn Aug. 27 treat yourself to a truly unique evening of fun; food and entertainment. This will be the third Summer Fest event and if the first two were any indication; this particular evening should be a real treat. To begin with, the evening starts with a bratwurst dinner and all the fixings. Is there anyone who doesnt like a bratwurst dinner with all the fixings? The food served at Summer Fest is always delicious and always served up hot and fresh. We can thank our Social Committee for that and the volunteers who work so hard. Musically, there will be a very special treat. The Gator Bone Trio will be performing for us on that night. Those of you who may not be familiar with the Gator Bone Trio will be glad to hear that they are professional family of friends who have been together for more than 20 years. They play a blend of original compositions; folk music; jazz; bluegrass and contemporary melodies that appeal to audiences from teenagers to octogenarians; and older folks too. This should be a truly unique and entertaining evening for everyone. Because of the generosity of Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management; these events are free but tickets are required. You must see Geri to get your tickets and reserve your place for this marvelous evening by Aug. 22. Tickets are limited so dont hesitate.Volunteer of the MonthWe are going to start recognizing some of the people who give so much of their time and energy to Cherrywood as volunteers. These people make Cherrywood a wonderful place to live as they improve the quality of life for all of us. This months volunteer is Holly Bragdon. Holly is seen at nearly all of our functions from Trivia to Ladies Billiards; Bingo to Line Dancing. Her vibrant personality and winning smile light up a room when she walks in. Nearly all of the beautiful photos you see in the Citizen newspaper and most of those in the Cherrywood Chirp are all products of her hard work and expertise with a camera. We are grateful to her for the many hours she puts into our activities and for recording through pictures the fun times we share.

Friday, July 11, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, July 11, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Dear Readers, the parade is over, fireworks with their booms and beautiful lights are stored away for another year. I loved the whole celebration but also did not forget why we celebrate and did not forget all those who served this country. Paul Pike and his committee also kept in mind the reason for July 4. They had a tribute to veterans, flag of all armed services presented, (reading of a poem about our American flag), patriotic songs, opening prayer, bagpipes and drums. I know my husband and I enjoyed the whole day. We are proud to be Americans. You know what else touched my heart? At both of Oak Run festivities I saw one of the survivors of the Battle of the Bulge and his wife; several persons recovering from bad falls or other medical issues. My point is that despite ages, medical conditions they are not sitting at home but getting out, enjoying themselves and isnt that what makes Oak Run such a great place to live? The following are reminders: PACOR Monday the 14th at 7 p.m. in Palm Grove (T-shirts available at meeting). Donut Drop-In is Saturday, the 12th 8 to 9:30 a.m. in O.C. If there is a new resident sitting at your table, please introduce yourself and make them feel welcomed. For most of us it is a big move leaving our comfort zone and retiring to FL and a development. It doesnt matter where we live in Oak Run we are all neighbors. I loved the cart with big sign Historical Neighborhoods. Read on for other events. Take care. LauraThe TroubadoursThe Troubadours did a great job again this year leading our Oak Run Community with a variety of patriotic songs, at the annual cool down, putting all in a very Fourth of July festive mood. God bless the USA! Consider joining The Troubadours as we begin our fall season in preparation for what will prove to be a great Christmas concert. Many voices are needed. Look for details in upcoming publications as to when and where practices will be. For more information contact Dr. Mary Beth Lake at 352-873-8787.

What was really nice according to Nancy is that they had a lot of fun. Oak Run TravelAs a reminder, dont forget this important date for our three cruises in 2015. While this sale seems very far in advance, especially for fall 2015, we must take advantage of the early availability of cabins at the best prices. Also, for the first time in a long time we are offering two cruises that embark within a month of each other and we want to be sure that our residents can plan when such a choice is presented. On Monday, July 14, in the Orchid Club, from noon to 1:30 p.m. we will be selling the following three cruises for 2015: March 20, 2015 10 night Southern Caribbean Legend of the Seas Oct. 18, 2015 15 night repositioning cruise from Quebec City (via Montreal) to Fort Lauderdale Serenade of the Seas Nov. 22, 2015 7 day Thanksgiving Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral Freedom of the Seas Please note that the Quebec to Fort Lauderdale cruise is having a tremendous response according to the cruise line. We have limited cabin categories because of this demand. If you are interested in this cruise it is recommended that you come early to the sale date above and get on the sign-up list since it is first come-first served as always. Also, the Orchid Club auditorium has heavy use this day and there is another group in there until noon so do not go in the auditorium until noon. The sign up sheet will be in the lobby for all three cruises. Look for information flyers in the Oak Run Travel bulletin board boxes. Call Bob Kocher about the repositioning cruise or John Casabianca regarding the Caribbean Cruises. We have tickets remaining for trip 6 to see Kiss Me Kate on Sept. 28. It is at the Show Palace Dinner Theatre with the bus leaving at 11:30 a.m. The buffet starts at 1:30 followed by the show at 3.

Select one of them to talk about for 2-3 minutes. Each article should have a card with the members name and the approximate year of the article. Personal items, historical items or whatever has special meaning to you are all good ideas. Is it something that belonged to a grandparent or great grandparent? Is it a newspaper article that talks about an ancestor? Maybe you have photos taken during the 1800s or early 1900s. You can bring in more than one and they will be put on display but concentrate on a special one to talk about. Suzanne Hough is in charge of this. If you have questions, give Suzanne a call. Any Oak Run resident is welcome to attend a meeting to see what it is we do and if you are bitten with the genealogy bug, so much the better. Remember the sign of a devoted genealogist is someone who introduces their children as their descendants. OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 From your reporterWell, that is all for now.

Friday, July 11, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, July 11, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Dear Readers, the parade is over, fireworks with their booms and beautiful lights are stored away for another year. I loved the whole celebration but also did not forget why we celebrate and did not forget all those who served this country. Paul Pike and his committee also kept in mind the reason for July 4. They had a tribute to veterans, flag of all armed services presented, (reading of a poem about our American flag), patriotic songs, opening prayer, bagpipes and drums. I know my husband and I enjoyed the whole day. We are proud to be Americans. You know what else touched my heart? At both of Oak Run festivities I saw one of the survivors of the Battle of the Bulge and his wife; several persons recovering from bad falls or other medical issues. My point is that despite ages, medical conditions they are not sitting at home but getting out, enjoying themselves and isnt that what makes Oak Run such a great place to live? The following are reminders: PACOR Monday the 14th at 7 p.m. in Palm Grove (T-shirts available at meeting). Donut Drop-In is Saturday, the 12th 8 to 9:30 a.m. in O.C. If there is a new resident sitting at your table, please introduce yourself and make them feel welcomed. For most of us it is a big move leaving our comfort zone and retiring to FL and a development. It doesnt matter where we live in Oak Run we are all neighbors. I loved the cart with big sign Historical Neighborhoods. Read on for other events. Take care. LauraThe TroubadoursThe Troubadours did a great job again this year leading our Oak Run Community with a variety of patriotic songs, at the annual cool down, putting all in a very Fourth of July festive mood. God bless the USA! Consider joining The Troubadours as we begin our fall season in preparation for what will prove to be a great Christmas concert. Many voices are needed. Look for details in upcoming publications as to when and where practices will be. For more information contact Dr. Mary Beth Lake at 352-873-8787.

What was really nice according to Nancy is that they had a lot of fun. Oak Run TravelAs a reminder, dont forget this important date for our three cruises in 2015. While this sale seems very far in advance, especially for fall 2015, we must take advantage of the early availability of cabins at the best prices. Also, for the first time in a long time we are offering two cruises that embark within a month of each other and we want to be sure that our residents can plan when such a choice is presented. On Monday, July 14, in the Orchid Club, from noon to 1:30 p.m. we will be selling the following three cruises for 2015: March 20, 2015 10 night Southern Caribbean Legend of the Seas Oct. 18, 2015 15 night repositioning cruise from Quebec City (via Montreal) to Fort Lauderdale Serenade of the Seas Nov. 22, 2015 7 day Thanksgiving Caribbean Cruise from Port Canaveral Freedom of the Seas Please note that the Quebec to Fort Lauderdale cruise is having a tremendous response according to the cruise line. We have limited cabin categories because of this demand. If you are interested in this cruise it is recommended that you come early to the sale date above and get on the sign-up list since it is first come-first served as always. Also, the Orchid Club auditorium has heavy use this day and there is another group in there until noon so do not go in the auditorium until noon. The sign up sheet will be in the lobby for all three cruises. Look for information flyers in the Oak Run Travel bulletin board boxes. Call Bob Kocher about the repositioning cruise or John Casabianca regarding the Caribbean Cruises. We have tickets remaining for trip 6 to see Kiss Me Kate on Sept. 28. It is at the Show Palace Dinner Theatre with the bus leaving at 11:30 a.m. The buffet starts at 1:30 followed by the show at 3.

Select one of them to talk about for 2-3 minutes. Each article should have a card with the members name and the approximate year of the article. Personal items, historical items or whatever has special meaning to you are all good ideas. Is it something that belonged to a grandparent or great grandparent? Is it a newspaper article that talks about an ancestor? Maybe you have photos taken during the 1800s or early 1900s.

All of us at Cherrywood thank you Holly for your dedication and commitment. Our community is a better place to live because of you.Summer cancellationsThere are no Veterans Club meetings for July and August but they will return on Sept. 4 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. Our fitness expert Deb Rivera will be on vacation from July 28 until Aug. 4 so mark your calendars. We wish her a safe and happy holiday.Back to schoolWe will be collecting school supplies for needy kids from now until August. Youll find a large donation box inside our clubhouse and we encourage all of our residents and friends in the neighborhood to contribute. These youngsters need everything from back packs to crayons. Were asking for notebooks; essay books; pens; paper; erasers; scissors; pencils; rulers and just about everything you can think of thats school related. Starting off the school year with the right supplies helps youngsters begin the school year with a positive attitude and thats what we want for your young people. They are our future so anything we can do to help is worthwhile. The box is beginning to fill and if we all just donate a few items per week; it will soon be packed to capacity. Wouldnt that be terrific?Reading PalsDo you miss reading stories to your grandchildren? Would you like to make a difference in the life of a little girl or boy? Well, we have a program here in Marion County that will match you up with a Reading pal and the program will brighten both of your lives. Reading Pal matches a volunteer with a kindergarten age student. For one hour a week over the 26week project; you will meet in the school library and read to one another. You will be given a book that the student gets to keep after youve read it so these young readers can start building their own personal library. Most of these children dont have anyone at home to read with them so learning new words and having their imaginations inspired opens a whole new world for them. There is a short training class to attend so you will get guidelines and support. In other words, you wont be going in cold to these reading sessions. Reading is the one basic skill that all other skills are based on. If you can help a child read; they will be able to accomplish anything from becoming a surgeon to flying in space. You can become a Reading Pal or get more information on this program by calling Jan Hathaway at 352-732-9696 extension 212. We need about 70 volunteers and youll be placed in a school near your home so you wont have a long drive. Call Jan today; make a difference in a childs life forever.New residents to be welcomedIf you are new to the Cherrywood community, we would like to invite you to an informal meet and greet on Saturday, Aug. 9. Come to the clubhouse at 9:30 and enjoy coffee; donuts and conversation as well as receiving some helpful information. You will be given some maps and other literature that will help you navigate not only the Cherrywood neighborhood but also the area around us and all of Marion County. Learn about various services; hospitals; shopping; and more. All of us were new at one time and we know how difficult it can be to learn about your new surroundings. In addition youll meet some of the leaders of the various committees and programs here at Cherrywood. These people will be able to answer your questions about the many varied activities that we have to offer from fitness to horseshoes; from dances to dinners and everything in between. Make it a point to contact Geri and let her know that youll be attending. The very worst you can get out of this welcoming committee project is a great cup of coffee and a few delicious donuts. See you there.Flu shotsDont forget to come to the clubhouse on Sept. 5 for your flu shot. Inoculations will be given from 1 until 3 p.m. by the professional staff. You may want to call Geri and get your name on the list, no appointments necessary, the professional staff from VaxCare will you get in and out without delay. We want all of our residents healthy and happy so dont miss your flu shot.From the reporterSeveral months ago we used to do an article on people of interest here in Cherrywood. For this weeks edition we are reviving that tradition to introduce you to Sarah and Frank Blair. Sarah is the new secretary for the Veterans Club; chair of the welcoming committee and president of the Cribbage Club. Sarah and her husband Frank moved to Ocala just over three years ago to care for both Sarahs and Franks mothers who lived in the area. During their home search they saw the cleanliness and neatness of Cherrywood and were impressed. Their prospective neighbors welcomed them warmly and when they found out how many activities we have here they were hooked. Sarah is a veteran of the U.S. Army and has worked in the financial services of the corporate world for over 15 years. When she married Frank she joined him in his profession as an over the road trucker. The loving couple have been married 22 years and have two children; one each from previous marriages. Sarah has a son James Brown living in California and Frank has a son, Franklin Lee Blair living in Terre Haute, Indiana. Two grandchildren, Alyessa, 9, and Adrionne, 7, are the apple of their eye. Because of Sarah and Franks influence, two of Sarahs sisters are relocating to Florida. In spite of the miles they remained a close knit family group and now they will be able to share holidays and fun times together. Sarah is an expert organizer crediting her military and private sector experience. In the financial services profession for nearly 15 years; her assignments required continuous training and expert skills to coordinate meetings as well as keeping accurate records. In addition to the skills she obtained with her career; Sarah has attended Champlain College and Monterey Peninsular College. Unknown to most people she is also an accomplished pianist and vocalist. She used to entertain her Mom; playing the piano and singing her favorite songs. Sarah now sings in her Church choir. Being a relative newcomer to our community herself, Sarah will be an excellent co-chair for the Welcoming Committee. She is all too aware of how easily people can become lost when looking for various stores and services in our area. She is also familiar with the many activities and fun events that Cherrywood has to offer. Being an avid card player, Sarah ably sets up the tournaments and playing schedules for our Cribbage Club. It is her dynamic personality and sense of humor that has caused that club to gain in popularity and participation. Sarah worked on the recent Veterans Golf Tournament and was an active volunteer with the Memorial Day observance. Her dedication and varied abilities will be a great asset to the Veterans Club as she takes over the post of secretary on the Executive Board. We warmly welcome Sarah to her new post. If you have suggestions or comments concerning the Cherrywood Section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I welcome hearing from you. Nearly 250 residents and guests packed the clubhouse and surrounding grounds on Saturday, July 2 to enjoy a wonderful meal; hear some fantastic music and to salute the veterans. This was the second of our four scheduled 100 Days of Summer celebrations and it was a great evening of socializing for all concerned. Geri was our hostess for the festivities representing Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management who sponsor all of our 100 Days of Summer events. Always charming, she called up the tables to the buffet and directed the drawings for door prizes and 50/50 drawings. Our Social Committee volunteers did an outstanding job of preparing the serving line and getting the large crowd through in just a little over 30 minutes. That was quite a feat in and of itself; requiring a great organization and planning. The Northern Sounds band played a wide variety of songs getting people on to the dance floor early and keeping them late. At 7 p.m. they began their Salute to Veterans with the tune God Bless America. This was followed by the playing of the Armed Forces Medley which resulted in resounding cheers. Bill Huff, a Marine veteran, was assisted to his feet by his wife Wanda when the Marines Hymn sounded. This resulted in loud applause because Bill has been in ill health lately. Having him and Wanda there was a special treat for every one who know and love them. The band struck up the song, When the Saints Go Marching In, and Charlene led a long line of revelers who danced around the room in procession. It gave new meaning to the term Line Dancing. Charlene is a valued member of our popular Line Dancing class. Everyone who attended had a terrific time. The chicken dinner was superb and the music top notch. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who participated in the planning and funding for this wonderful night.Comedy NightOn Monday, Aug. 4, comedian and hypnotist Larry Silver will be on stage at our clubhouse for two great shows. Larry has a long resume of appearances including cruise ships to night clubs; TV shows to celebrity functions and everything in between. You wont want to miss this world class talent. Described as HypnoLarryous, Larry will be appearing at 5:30 and 7:30 so that we might accommodate the expected large crowd. Youll be laughing at not only his jokes but at the demonstrations of his hypnotic abilities. He is a riot to see in action. Enjoy snacks, iced tea, and lemonade along with your show. Of course you are welcome to bring your own libations if you wish. There will also be door prizes and 50/50 drawings for everyone to take part in. This promises to be a great night of comedic entertainment so get your free tickets from Geri in the office and mark your calendars. This event is sponsored by Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management.TriviaOn July 16, Richard Hurley will take over the big screen in the clubhouse to test the knowledge of those brave souls who would venture into Trivia Night at Cherrywood. The subject for that evening will be Liberties; and you can bet that Rich will take liberties with the subject. Trivia is fun and easy to play. Shortly before 7 p.m. you show up at the clubhouse and pay $1 to enter. If you have 3 or 4 people with you and would like to play as a team, you are more than welcome to do that. If not, you will be assigned a team to play with. Each team has an answer sheet. All team members try to answer the questions that are put up on the big screen. At the end of the game, answer sheets are swapped between the teams and the winners get a small cash prize. More importantly, the wining team gets bragging rights for the whole month. This is basically a very informal and fun time where people get to enjoy friendly competition and enjoy each others company socially. One of the neat things about this game is that the proceeds go to support our Patriot Dog Project so youre having fun plus helping a worth cause. Join us for a night of fun and knowledge on Wednesday, July 16 at 7 p.m.August Summer FestOn Aug. 27 treat yourself to a truly unique evening of fun; food and entertainment. This will be the third Summer Fest event and if the first two were any indication; this particular evening should be a real treat. To begin with, the evening starts with a bratwurst dinner and all the fixings. Is there anyone who doesnt like a bratwurst dinner with all the fixings? The food served at Summer Fest is always delicious and always served up hot and fresh. We can thank our Social Committee for that and the volunteers who work so hard. Musically, there will be a very special treat. The Gator Bone Trio will be performing for us on that night. Those of you who may not be familiar with the Gator Bone Trio will be glad to hear that they are professional family of friends who have been together for more than 20 years. They play a blend of original compositions; folk music; jazz; bluegrass and contemporary melodies that appeal to audiences from teenagers to octogenarians; and older folks too. This should be a truly unique and entertaining evening for everyone. Because of the generosity of Chris and Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management; these events are free but tickets are required. You must see Geri to get your tickets and reserve your place for this marvelous evening by Aug. 22. Tickets are limited so dont hesitate.Volunteer of the MonthWe are going to start recognizing some of the people who give so much of their time and energy to Cherrywood as volunteers. These people make Cherrywood a wonderful place to live as they improve the quality of life for all of us. This months volunteer is Holly Bragdon. Holly is seen at nearly all of our functions from Trivia to Ladies Billiards; Bingo to Line Dancing. Her vibrant personality and winning smile light up a room when she walks in. Nearly all of the beautiful photos you see in the Citizen newspaper and most of those in the Cherrywood Chirp are all products of her hard work and expertise with a camera. We are grateful to her for the many hours she puts into our activities and for recording through pictures the fun times we share.

This matter of being offended can go both ways. There should be an equal offended person law. There is a law for everything else. I just would like to meet the person who is offended by somebody saying to them, Have a blessed day. Later that evening I was watching a new crime/detective story on TV and all of a sudden, I heard some words that were offensive. They were saying curse words that I have never heard on TV before. I have always believed that if you have to use curse words, it is because your vocabulary is drastically lacking in intellectual responses to the world around you. Here is my dilemma. Why can you say curse words on TV, which everybody knows is scripted, but you cannot say, Have a blessed day, without getting fired? If I was in business I would want my employees to greet my clients with a cheerful, Have a blessed day and not some awful curse words. I was complaining about this to a friend of mine who explained to me that curse words on television are considered literary license. Who is paying for that license I am wondering. All of this has to do with the PC syndrome in our country today. The problem is what was PC yesterday is no longer PC today. Who knows what tomorrows PC will be. What I cannot accept is the fact that being crude and rude is PC and saying something nice is not. Have we reverted to the caveman mentality? Is being nice is no longer acceptable behavior? I like what David says, Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name (Psalms 103:1). Perhaps the reason people are offended by that phrase is because they know that only God has the power to bless. If I am being blessed by God, I am going to turn around and bless people around me. So, for those offended by that phrase let me say, Have a blessed day. And fire me if you dare.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

and the public has known about their government spying on them for well over a year, some much longer. Even the ill informed make government surveillance jokes, but still the collection continues. It is as though everyone is in denial. It is as though the revelations of the last two years could not really be real. No one is really being arrested or punished for their thoughts. Yet. The noose is not tight. And what is a yottabyte of information anyway? The size description is incomprehensible adding to brain overload. A yottabyte is 1,000 zettabytes (the number 1 followed by 24 zeros 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,00 0,000). That scientists, computer engineers, and other staff work in secret on the cryptanalytic applications of high-speed computing and other classified projects (Cryptome, March 16, 2012, NSA Decryption Multipurpose Research Facility), making what is now happening possible, merely adds to the incomprehensiveness of the subject. Monday morning the same light flooded the room. The same symbols of liberty and oppression lay in stark contrast below. The same five church steeples reach for the sky as though to appeal to God for His influence. The same residents drive by, perhaps the greatest symbol of totalitarianism of all time, on their way to work, as though it does not exist. Some may even work at this place to help give the government details on their neighbor. Everything about this ugly, windowless, grey structure violates the Constitution. Chances are those of the community next door that sing of freedom will return to office the same Democrats and Republicans that authorized and funded their surveillance. I closed the window. If I too ignore what it shows, it will go away. Right?Dr. Harold Pease is an expert on the United States Constitution.

Allie Gore, LWV of Marion CountyHobby LobbyIts poetic justice that the far left actually lost the Hobby Lobby case in 1987. Thats when President Reagan nominated distinguished jurist Robert Bork to the Supreme Court. Ted Kennedy and his minions slandered Bork and defeated the nomination. (The term Borking rose from those vicious tactics.) So Reagan nominated Anthony Kennedy, who is still on the Court. Bork died in December 2012. Had Bork served on the court until his death, President Obama would have put one of his liberal lackeys on the Court, and Hobby Lobby would have lost the case. By the way, Kennedy would have voted with the liberals on the court if the fine for noncompliance hadnt been so steep. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 makes it illegal to place a substantial economic burden on people like Hobby Lobbys owners. The fine of $1.3 million per day, or about $475 million per year, certainly meets this criteria. So be careful, libs, who you slander; it could and did backfire. Al Shumard Oak RunNot a chiefAlthough the letter concerning the Redskin nickname was well thought out and very insightful, there was one common mistake referenced that is universally made when it comes to Geronimo, the great Apache warrior. He was a great fighter and warrior of the Chiricahuas, but was never a chief. Its like people believing that Humphrey Bogart said play it again Sam in Casablanca. However, my observation is not to detract from the excellent facts and opinions put forth. Jim Hacker On Top Of The World LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Imust confess to a severe case of poverty. I never took a vow of poverty; it just seems to have worked out that way for me. I am so poor the church mice have packed their bags and moved on. If I knew where they moved to, I might join them. Being poor can have its advantages, but I have yet to run across any. I am so poor I am not able to pay attention, especially when watching some television program with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. This has caused no small problem with my wife. We love an evening of unwinding before the TV watching some of our favorite programs. I must confess those programs are getting fewer and fewer each year. Soon we are going to have to go back to reading books. Together we will be watching a program, and when I say we, I do it with certain modifications. My wife will get up and go to the kitchen for something and when she returns, she asks me a question, What happened? I look at her with one of my infamous quizzical looks and respond, Where? Have a blessed day; now fire me if you dare! She then explains she is talking about what happened on the TV program while she was away. I then tell her, Im sorry, I wasnt paying attention. This seems to be a source of real frustration for her. If you cant afford to pay attention, she will say sarcastically while rolling her eyes, couldnt you at least rent some attention some time? I tried explaining to her that old age is making me a little more forgetful. She, however, is not buying it, so there goes my income stream. For me, watching television is not an obsession; it is more like a distraction. I do not follow every little bit on the television screen. For me it is not a matter of life or death, it is just a matter of recreation. I know that nothing on TV is real. We can be in the middle of the next program and I do not realize that the first program has ended. Talk about confusing! When something does catch my attention, boy does it have my attention. Did you, I ask my wife, hear that? Then it is role reversal in prime time. I will not say she acts like me, just that it comes pretty close to it. Not quite Oscar material, but close. What? She said with a very confused look on her face. So I had to explain the news story that I just happened to catch. I do not know all of the details, I was not paying that much attention, just that someone was fired from their job for saying to a customer, Have a blessed day. I have met many customer service people that said things that I would want them to be fired from, but this has never been on my list. My wife then asked the question I was thinking. What is wrong with telling someone to have a blessed day? I could not figure it out. It is like at Christmas time some places do not want their employees to say to the customer, Merry Christmas. The reasoning is, it might offend someone. What about us who are offended when somebody does Out to Pastor Rev.

Reverend Michael Sims and Reverend Jennifer Jen Harner Sims are a husband and wife team. They have one son, Luke, who is 5 years old. Both graduated from Duke Divinity School where they met and graduated in 2004. Both have Masters of Divinity Degrees. Both are Elders in Full connection in the Florida Conference and have been Pastoring in the Florida Conference for 10 years. Reverend Michael has served as Senior Pastor of Tice UMC in Fort Myers from 2004 to 2006. He was reappointed to Trinity UMC in Jensen Beach. Pastor Jen has served as senior pastor of First UMC of Pahokee from 2004 to 2005. Early in 2005 she joined the pastoral ministry team at the United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches. Pastor Michael serves on the Board of the Florida United Methodist Childrens Home; and, Pastor Jen frequently leads retreats, speaks at conferences, and is currently engaged in several writing projects. Pastor Michael and Pastor Jen along with their son enjoy a very active lifestyle. They enjoy family adventures, travel, and being involved in the community. They look forward to getting to know you and your story. They also look forward to hearing how God is calling us to pray for, strengthen, support, and engage OWUMCs ministries and mission to the greater Ocala community. They believe that together, and through the power of Gods Spirit, that God will bless and strengthen our church and greater community. The Sims started their mission at OWUMC the first of July with their first worship service being July 6. Meanwhile, a fond farewell was extended to Pastor Alan Jefferson, his wife Jo, and also to Carol Mack-Harrell on Sunday, June 29, at a luncheon reception in the Fellowship Hall of Ocala West United Methodist church at 9330 SW 105th St. The several hundred people who attended the farewell luncheon had an opportunity to chat individually with the Jeffersons and Mack-Harrell to offer their best wishes as they begin a new chapter in their respective ministry careers. Members of the congregation honored them with a monetary donation as well as many best wishes cards. Reverend Jefferson, after three years as senior pastor of Ocala West UMC, will be the new pastor at the First United Methodist Church in Bartow, near Lakeland.

BY JASON ALDERMAN Special to the CitizenIf you always stop to read the fine print before signing anything, congratulations your parents trained you well. If you dont, beware: Your signature could commit you to a long-term gym membership you dont really want, an apartment you cant afford or worst of all, paying off someone elses loan you cosigned. Broadly defined, contracts are mutually binding agreements between two or more parties to do or not do something. It could be as simple as buying coffee (you pay $3 and the restaurant agrees to serve you a drinkable beverage), or as complex as signing a 30-year mortgage. Once a contract is in force it generally cannot be altered unless all parties agree. And, with very few exceptions (e.g., if deception or fraud took place), contracts cannot easily be broken. Before you enter a contractual agreement, try to anticipate everything that might possibly go wrong. For example: After youve leased an apartment you decide you cant afford the rent or dont like the neighborhood. Your roommate moves out, leaving you responsible for the rest of the lease. You finance a car you cant afford, but when you try to sell, its worth less than your outstanding loan balance. You buy a car and only later notice that the sales agreement includes an extended warranty or other features you didnt verbally authorize. You sign a payday loan without fully understanding the terms and end up owing many times the original loan amount. You buy something on sale and dont notice the stores No returns on sale items policy. You click I agree to a websites privacy policy and later realize youve given permission to share your personal information. You buy a two-year cell phone plan, but after the grace period ends, discover that you have spotty reception and it will costs hundreds of dollars to buy your way out. Cosigning a loan can be particularly risky. If the other person stops making payments, youre responsible for the full amount, including late fees or collection costs. Not only will your credit rating suffer, but the creditor can use the same collection methods against you as against the primary borrower, including suing you or garnishing your wages. Still, there may be times you want to cosign a loan to help out a relative or friend. The Federal Trade Commissions handy guide, Co-signing a Loan, shows precautions to take before entering such agreements (www.consumer.ftc.gov). A few additional reminders: Ensure that everything you were promised verbally appears in writing. Make sure all blank spaces are filled in or crossed out before signing any documents including the tip line on restaurant and hotel bills. Dont be afraid to ask to take a contract home for more careful analysis or to get a second opinion. A lawyer or financial adviser can help. Dont be pressured into signing anything. If salespeople try that tactic, walk away. (Be particularly wary at timeshare rental meetings.) Keep copies of every document you sign. This will be especially important for contested rental deposits, damaged merchandise, insurance claims, extended warranties, etc. Take along a wingman if youre making an important decision like renting an apartment or buying a car to help ask questions and protect your interests. Be wary of free trial offers. Read all terms and conditions and pay particular attention to pre-checked boxes in online offers. Bottom line: Contracts protect both parties. Just make sure you fully understand all details before signing on the dotted line.Jason Alderman directs Visas financial education programs.

Wellcrafted and genuine, it deals with fully human characters who are unpretentious and resolutely middle class. In clear, unvarnished prose the author chronicles the cruel disease affecting 35 million people worldwide and the fictional Reimer family specifically. Saul Reimer is a crusty patriarch with a wicked sense of humor only his diary records. His first-person perspective is the novels most ambitious characteristic. s Early on, in a lucid moment Saul describes his condition as he sees it: My brain is like a shortwave radio, mostly static that occasionally finds the station, but even then the sound isnt always clear. His intellectual deterioration is gradual and believable and so are the reactions to it from his familydutiful wife Monique and adult children Joey and Florence. Joey, somewhat self-centered, is slow to offer needed support whereas sister Florencelike her namesake Nightingalesacrifices her personal life to be on hand almost 24/7. Advising Monique about what to expect next is Alzheimers specialist Dr. Tremblay whose observations provide an informative background about the various stages of the disease the decline from confusion and denial to complete loss of cognitive function. Though frequently exhausted and irritated at her querulous charge, Monique is compassionate. One day looking at a vase of flowers past their prime she thinks, Today, for the first time, I realized the obvious. That as each petal falls, a flower loses a part of its life. And thats whats happening to Saul. Bit by bit, he is losing parts of himself, and eventually, when all the petals fall he will be nothing. At the same time, shes often conflicted, wanting to cling to her dying husband, yet wanting him released from his suffering. And, inevitably, there are private moments of self-pity: Saul may be the one with Alzheimers, but Im the one suffering a long and miserable life. Dr. Tremblay believes the caregiver-spouse often goes through torment, agony, and especially guilt until he or she cant take it anymore before admitting the loved one to a facility. Eric Rills thoughtful insights may comfort those dealing with this dreaded form of dementia.

Friday, July 11, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 11, 2014 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your Aries leadership qualities can help bring order out of all that confusion, whether its on the job or in the home. But be careful to guide, not goad, others into following you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Applying a more personal view to a joblinked issue could help provide better insight into those persistent problems. Use your keen Taurean logic to cut through the double-talk. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Taking some time off could be the way to get through that endless round of demands. Youll return refreshed, ready to tackle things from a new perspective. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Restoring a sagging professional relationship takes a lot of effort. By all means, state your position. But also make sure you pay close attention to the other persons point of view. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A hot prospect intrigues the Big Cat, who is always on the prowl for a promising investment. But be careful that this promise has a chance of being kept. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A friend could use some of your compassion and concern. If he or she doesnt ask for help, be sure you make the first move. Check out a new career possibility. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might have difficulty getting your opinions heard because of all the noise being made by the other side. But hang in there. Others should line up with you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Offering to help a colleague is commendable. But before you commit your time and effort, check to see if that persons situation is all that he or she has led you to believe it is. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You soon should be seeing positive results from your recent efforts on behalf of a family member. On another matter, check that you have all the facts regarding a job assignment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your aspects favor closer family relationships this week. Take time for visits, whether in person, by phone, by mail or in cyberspace. Let them know how important they are to you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A missed opportunity isnt always a negative. Maybe instincts are telling you not to rush into something you thought was worthwhile. Make time for family this weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your sense of humor helps you get through a tricky situation. But some stick-inthe-muds might not be so willing to make changes that you and others agree are necessary. BY HAROLD PEASE, PH. D Special to the CitizenI awoke on a Sunday morning where I was visiting, a ray of light coming through the window. The window view showed side-byside symbols; one of liberty, as represented by a small community of multi-colored and multishaped living structures with residents going about their business oblivious to the second symbol, represented by large, grey, ugly, windowless government buildings spying on and recording everyones communication. The contrast of liberty and totalitarian intent was startling and breathtaking. To the far left of the window view was a new housing development intruding into largely undeveloped land, like an extending finger, with brown hills above it and a large hay farm in front and below stretching far forward and to the right of my view. Here residents made choices that enhanced the quality and comfort of their lives largely free from total government spying and restrictionor so they thought. The number of churches to the population seemed unusually high, five church steeples reaching skyward, as if begging for the influence of God in their community, in what looked to be no more than 300 structures, mostly apartments, as seen from my windowall within a mile of where I was. I attended one of the churches and was greeted with the opening song America the Beautiful, the classic patriotic tune words written by Katherine Lee Bates and music by Samuel A. Ward. It housed the favorite words America! America! followed by four phrases in four verses God shed his grace on thee, and, God mend thine every flaw, and, May God thy gold refine, and again, God shed his grace on thee. Obviously, these Christians loved their liberty. A similar tune representing a relationship between God, country and liberty could have been found throughout most of the country the Sunday before the 4th of July. In stark contrast off in the distance about two miles, but still clearly visible from the left side of the same window, was the most profound symbol of big government everthe new NSA spy center, the largest in the world, capable of holding a yottabyte of information collected from every person on earth, some say, for generations to come. These enormous, ugly, grey, windowless, buildings perched on a hill with intimidating guard-houses restricting entrance, represented potential total control of the actions and thoughts of every human. What is different about the Bluffdale, Utah spy center from other such centers in the United States is that the government does not deny that it specifically targets its own citizens. Much has been published on NSA government spying of its own people and LibertyUnderFire.org has published on this topic two previous articles, so nothing new is found in this one. A project began under George W. Bush and accelerated under Barack Obama, Bluffdale is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the worlds communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital pocket litter (The NSA Is Building the Countrys Biggest Spy Center. Watch What You Say.) The project was code named Stellar Wind. Fortunately the secret is out Sometime back, I wrote about the lawsuit over payments from the School Board to the city, noting that both were tax-supported by Marion County residents. Now here we go again. At last weeks County Commission meeting, there was a discussion about possibly suing the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice over some payments that had not been made to the county. Both the county and the DJJ are tax-supported agencies, which once again means that Im suing me to get my money that Ive already paid in state taxes and fees. I just dont understand these government entities who are so wrapped up in their own finances that they fail to recognize that theyre fooling around with our money. And when its all over, the only people getting rich are the attorneys. My plea is that all elected officials take time to cut down the silly spending which drives the budget, and ultimately our taxes, up. And if they dont remember that, then we need to remind them at the ballot box. Theres no law that says we have to vote for incumbents in the primary on Aug. 26. Lets get rid of the suspension of impact fees in Marion County. Think of the millions we could make that way, millions that weve given away over recent years. Some say that would stifle growth. I say that stifling growth is a good thing. Its out of control in Marion County, with developers from out of the area coming in and getting approval to build whenever and wherever they want, with our government watchdogs just watching, not acting. Next Tuesday go to the countys zoning hearing at 2 p.m. on the day of the County Commission meeting. Youll see how people pleading to slow down extra development in their areas of the county are politely listened to by the commissioners, then ignored. It seems as if our County Commission never met a development it didnt like. The western part of the county seems particularly susceptible to the developers. Theres a little bit of evidence west of Interstate 75 in the northwestern part of the county, but the biggest problems is the southwest. If you dont believe me, take a casual ride out State Road 200. Of course, if you try to drive anything less than 55 in a 50 mph zone, youll get run over by the big pickup trucks and large SUVs that are always in a hurry to get somewhere. The understaffed law enforcement agencies cant be everywhere, but it does seem to me that if we hire three deputies and have them exclusively work as a traffic unit on 200, the resulting fines and fees would more than pay for them and their cars very quickly. Our experience in watching the cars shoot past us is that a bunch of those fines and fees would be paid by Citrus County and out-of-state residents. And thats what we should be doing across the board. Dont increase government anywhere unless theres a way to pay for that isnt coming out of the average residents pocket. So we urge you to stay informed. County Commission candidates are scheduled to be part of the State Road 200 Coalition meeting Monday at TimberRidge. Go ahead and attend and ask important questions. Maybe well all learn something about whether things can change in our county. Im getting a little tired of the Im suing me mentality.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and the South Marion Citizen.

The deadline is one week prior to each Fridays issue.E-mail letters to: editor@smcitizen.com. Letters should be Word attachments or pasted in the body of the email. Do not use any other word processing programs. Remember, folks: The government likes paper, and it likes the United States Postal Service. If it wants your information, it wants it in writing, with supporting documentation and sometimes in triplicate, and it wants to send a government employee to let you know about it. With that in mind, if you get a phone call or email from someone claiming to work for the court system and pumping you for personal information, your defenses should go up. Those types of emails and phone calls are becoming more common as identity thieves look for new ways to target the nave. Of late, citizens across the nation have reported being contacted by people posing as government employees, threatening arrest unless the target coughs up their Social Security number and credit card or bank account information for nonpayment of various alleged infractions. If this happens to you, dont believe it and dont stand for it. If any phone call makes you suspicious, hang up and call back. You wont hurt any feelings, but you could save yourself a lot of trouble. If its allegedly from your bank, call and ask to speak to a supervisor. If its from a government agency, call that agency and verify that they attempted to contact you. If its from a business, call the relevant chamber of commerce and check them out. Lastly, call the police if warranted; Impersonation of a government employee is a felony in most cases, and a crime law enforcement agencies take very seriously. So you know: Residents can contact the clerks jury department directly at 352-671-5581.

The father abused the family and Pat thought his father would kill him one day. In real life, his father was meaner than in the book and movie. Last year, Pat wrote another book which is titled, The Death of Santini. This 1979 film tells the story of a Marine officer whose military success contrasts with his shortcomings as a father and husband. It starred Robert Duvall and Blythe Danner. A great way to spend a hot summer afternoon.OTOW Lions ClubThe OTOW Lions Club held its installation dinner for officers on June 24.

It was explained, that every resident of OTOW is automatically a member.

They work very hard planning the trips, however; many day trips are booked over 18 months in advance so we can get good seats.

Its not paid work that is responsible. Some think that to be considered important and valuable, they need to keep busy. They take on too many projects of all kinds which leaves them little time to just vegetate by relaxing by the pool or walking in Shalom Parks Nature trails and/or labyrinth. Over committing to projects, even fulfilling, worthwhile ones, leaves a person depleted. Learn to schedule fewer each day. We should take advantage of our ability to have as much down time as we need or want.

The Marion Oaks Civic Association Board of Directors voted unanimously to reopen Marion Oaks Bingo in August. Bingo is scheduled to resume on Aug. 6 at the usual time, 5:30 to 7 p.m. with cards selling at 6:15 p.m. There are plans to implement new ideas to spice up your playing experience. The items on our wish list are not going to be described here so you will just have to be surprised. We will of course be continuing with the Bonus Ball game that is winner take all for the players. We sincerely want to thank the players that came out in June even with the stressful situation of not knowing if the next week would bring game playing. We had a wonderful celebration for Pat and Frank Carlson the last Wednesday in June. Their 50th wedding anniversary will be in July, but because we are on vacation then, we celebrated a little early. If you want to see pictures of the fun, go to the Marion Oaks Civic Association and hit the tab that says photos and you News from Marion Oaks COMMENTARY BY SHELDON RICHMAN Special to the CitizenVirtually all commentary about the influx of unaccompanied Central American children into the United States, which some say could rise to 90,000 this year, misses the point: no government has the moral authority to capture these kids and send them back to the miserable situations they have escaped. This claim will strike many people as outrageous. So I ask, Where does government get the moral authority Im not talking about legal power to apprehend and detain human beings of any age who have committed aggression against no one? There is no such authority. These children are human beings. Whether they are coming here to be with family or to escape danger, they have the same natural rights as Americans have. Our rights can be expressed in many ways, but they boil down to just one: the right to be free of aggression. We have this right not by virtue of being American, but by virtue of being human. It is a natural, not national, right, so these young Hondurans, Salvadorans, and Guatemalans have it too. Locking them up and deporting them should offend Americans, who claim to believe in the natural right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. (Did the Fourth of July have any meaning, or was it just a day off from work?) For some strange reason, immigration makes people forget about freedom their sense of freedom gets overwhelmed by their deference to the state and national sovereignty. Thats why most people think securing the borders, as Barack Obama is doing, is more important than the welfare of poor people born on the other side of those borders (especially the southern border). I say strange because volumes of evidence show that the influx of people from other lands and cultures is also good for the people already here. We need not fear newcomers. It takes initiative and courage to pick yourself up, leave the only home and culture youve known, and journey to a new land. Those qualities also lead people to become entrepreneurs and engage in innovation. But even immigrants who dont start successful businesses still render valuable services as they strive to make better lives. If this is not obvious to most Americans, it may be because the illegal status forces people without government papers to work in the shadows. That status also leaves them vulnerable to horrible exploitation by people who can threaten to call the immigration authorities if their commands are not obeyed. That appalling condition is reason enough to legalize the so-called illegals. Speaking of exploitation, the perilous conditions that unaccomMoral authority and the immigrant kids PLEASESEERICHMAN, PAGE29

If the borders were open that is, if the natural right to be free of aggression were respected children would not need to be entrusted to shady men who can extort large sums of money on the promise to transport the children to the United States. Without government agents hunting them, children and parents could move north together in freedom and safety. They would be welcomed by generous humanitarian organizations, as immigrants were in the past. Also, if the U.S. government did not prosecute a violent war on drug makers and users, and did not push the war on Latin American governments, those children would be safer to start with. Many children leave today because of drug-related violence, or for fear of being impressed into drug gangs. But, many people ask, how can we handle all these kids? Who will pay? Under the welfare state, unfortunately the taxpayers will pay. This is what leads many people to oppose open borders. No freedom of movement, they say, until the welfare state goes. The problem is that the welfare state will never go if it is saved from all stresses and strains. While immigrants dont use the welfare system as much as people think, free immigration might help bring the end of government transfers. Private aid would take their place. Even today, Americans are humanitarian enough to finance care for these children if people did not assume the government would do it. In other words, the welfare state is morally corrupting.Sheldon Richman is vice president and editor at The Future of Freedom Foundation in Fairfax, Va. (www.fff.org). RICHMANCONTINUED FROM PAGE 28 E The Environmental Magazine Dear E arthT alk: I ve heard that, above and beyond our bad eating and lifestyle habits, some chemicals in everyday products are contributing to the obesity problem. Can you explain? Alyssa Israel, Fairfield, CT Obesity is a huge problem in the U.S. and other industrialized countries. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity rates have doubled for American adults and tripled for kids and teenagers aged six through 19 since 1980. Today, 31 percent of American adults and 15 percent of youngsters are classified as overweight. The rise in obesity and related health problems like diabetes is usually attributed to an abundance of high-calorie food coupled with the trend toward a more sedentary lifestyle, but there is more to the story. A growing number of researchers believe that certain chemicals collectively known as obesogens may be a contributing factor to the growing obesity epidemic. Exposure to these chemicals has been shown to interfere with the way we metabolize fat, leading to obesity despite otherwise normal diet and exercise. Bruce Blumberg, a biology professor at the University of California at Irvine, first coined the term obesogen in 2006 after discovering that certain tin-based compounds known as organotins predisposed lab mice to weight gain. In the intervening years, hundreds of research studies have found similar connections between weight gain in humans and exposure to organotins as well as several other common chemicals found in everyday consumer products, agricultural pesticides and even some drinking water. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) reports that as many as 20 synthetic chemicalsfrom the BPA in plastic food storage containers and the lining of cans to phthalates used in the manufacture of non-stick coatings to the parabens in many personal care productshave been shown to cause weight gain in humans, mostly from exposure in utero or as infants. These early effects can last a lifetime, permanently altering ones metabolic set points for gaining weight. If you have more fat cells and propensity to make more fat cells, and if you eat the typical high-carbohydrate, high-fat diet we eat [in the U.S.], you probably will get fat, Blumberg tells the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. Adult exposure to obesogens has also been shown to trigger weight gain and other endocrine issues while exacerbating the effects of earlier exposure. Certain pharmaceuticals (including some of the most commonly prescribed antidepressants) have been found to be particularly egregious in this regard. Meanwhile, nicotine, air fresheners and many household cleaning products also contain obesogens. Also, soybeans (consumed by both humans and the livestock we eat) contain a naturally occurring obesogen. There may not be much we can do about the damage already done, but avoiding obesogens, whether from natural or synthetic, might be the best thing we can do to prevent making our obesity, hypertension, diabetes and other health problems that much worse. Says Blumberg: Eat organic, filter water, minimize plastic in your lifeIf theres no benefit and some degree of risk, why expose yourself and your family? Of course, avoiding obesogens alone wont keep people from getting fat. Eating a nutritious diet and getting regular exercise are as important as ever to keep ones weight and overall health in check.CONTACTS: NIEHS, www.niehs.nih.gov; Obesogens: An Environmental Link to Obesity, Environmental Health Perspectives, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PM C3279464/.E arthT alk is written and edited by R oddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E T he E nvironmental Magazine ( www emagazine. com).

Four weeks ago soccers World Cup began in Brazil. It ends this Sunday with the championship match. So far, major casualties of the tournament included reigning champion Spain as well as other major European nations Italy, England, Portugal and the host team Brazil. Pun Alley takes us to the soccer pitch with some passable stories you should get a kick out of.Adult directionsAt one point during a game, the coach called one of his 9-year-old soccer players aside and asked, Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is? The little boy nodded in the affirmative. Do you understand that what matters is not whether we win or lose, but how we play together as a team? The little boy nodded yes. So, the coach continued, I am sure you know, when a penalty is called, you should not argue, curse, attack the referee, or call him bad names. Do you understand all that? Again the little boy nodded. He continued, And when I call you off the field so that another boy gets a chance to play, its not good sportsmanship to call your coach an idiot, is it? Again the little boy nodded. Good, said the coach. Now go over there and explain all that to your father.Rolling alongIn England a soccer manager, i.e., coach, was wheeling his shopping cart across the supermarket parking lot when he noticed an old lady struggling with her cart. He stopped and asked, Can you manage dear? The old lady replied, No way you got yourself into this mess, dont ask me to sort it out!Half thereA rather dim-witted fan arrived at a soccer game midway through the second half. Whats the score? he asked his friend as he settled into his seat. Nil-nil, came the reply. And what was the score at half time? he asked.Left back?Dad, dad! cried Philip, as he arrived home one evening. I think Ive been selected for the school soccer team. Thats good, said his father. But why do you only think youve been selected? Arent you sure? What position are you playing? Well, replied Philip, its not been announced officially, but I overheard the soccer coach tell my teacher that if I were in the team Id be a great draw-back.Short kicksSoccer is a game where 22 big, strong players run around like crazy for 90 minutes while 80,000 people who really need the exercise sit in the stands and watch them. Cinderella got kicked off the soccer team because she ran away from the ball. Soccer players do well in studies in school because they know how to use their heads. While some of the games in Brazil were in very humid areas none were in the jungle because there are too many cheetahs. A soccer match always lights up a soccer stadium.Hear hearOne of the most important things a soccer referee has to do is to communicate properly. A referee having problems with this took a communications course at a local community college. Having completed the course, he said the professor was a strange fellow. He told me that the first assignment was to put 10 marbles in my mouth and then give a speech. This would force me to concentrate on speaking clearly and carefully. After I completed that assignment, I could take one marble out of my mouth for the next assignment. This process continued. When I lost all my marbles, I was ready to referee.WinnerTaken away from the TV by a long phone call in the second half of the first U.S. World Cup game, Elliot asked his wife to watch and tell him who won. When the game ended, his wife walked into his study. What was the score? he asked, covering the mouthpiece. It was 2 to 1. Oh, man! Who won? She said, Two did.The finishDuring the World Cup qualifiers the goalie from Finland had never had his father see him play for the national team. When his father did get to watch him, several players arranged a banquet at a restaurant. In addition to the entire team and staff, several local dignitaries attended with the entire tab being picked up by the Finland goalie. It was a huge success. The next day the local newspaper reported that it was certainly a dinner worthy of the father, son and the goalie host.
