The School Board wants to get a special use permit for both schools on the land in Marion Oaks. All the land is vacant except for one parcel, owned by the ODonnell family, which is squarely in the center of the land for the two schools. David Herlihy, representing the School Board, made the plea at the County Commissions zoning hearing on July 15, said the schools may be needed in 10 years and the board was trying to get ahead of the game by having sites picked out and zoned properly. Terry Thompson of the Planning and Zoning Commission, who said he was in the minority when the P&Z approved the request, talked about the one home in the middle of the parcels, with all the surrounding areas currently zoned residential. He said the ODonnells bought their house about nine years ago, and expected to be surrounded by other houses. Currently, the property sits in the undeveloped area with scenic woods all around. He accused the School Board of land banking, saying they didnt know if they were going to need this property for schools. I dont feel its the right thing to do. Chairman Carl Zalak said the consequences on these folks could be significant. However, Stan McClain said Theres a real need here, and said it was not land banking. Kathy Bryant commented, Growth is going to come to that area we have to plan. Finally the commissioners agreed on a special use permit south of the ODonnell property, which would allow construction on an elementary school to begin any time, but said that north of that home could only begin if the School Board acquires the property, whether by purchase or eminent domain. 32~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Plans taken from school presentation to County Commission show the elementary school site in red and the middle school site in yellow, with parking in purple. The one parcel in the center of the drawing is the only house in the two tracts.

The Sales Tax Holiday is next weekend, Friday, Aug. 1 through Sunday, Aug. 3. This year, the sales tax exemption for clothing items has been increased to $100 or less per item (up from $75 or less per item in 2013). In addition, the sales tax exemption for personal computers and certain computer-related accessories will be on the first $750 of the sales price. Retailers say that will expand the list of tax-exempt items, and they expect an average increase of at least 30 percent in store traffic over the weekend because of the sales tax holiday. (Download the FRFs one-page flier here.) FRF President and CEO Rick McAllister said that Floridas strong job numbers are a good predictor of continuing growth in retail sales. Florida created 36,900 private-sector jobs in June 2014, and the statewide unemployment rate for June 2014 is 6.2 percent, down 1.2 percentage points from the June 2013 rate of 7.4 percent. Retailers are reporting a strong trend of sales growth of between 4 and 5 percent statewide, and we expect spending to remain strong through the crucial month of August, McAllister said. Floridas economy is humming along at a nice pace, and we are very pleased to see consumer spending warming up. Consumer spending is at least 70 percent of the economy, so when retailers are doing well it usually means everyone else is doing well. School supplies sales tax holiday is Aug. 1 to Aug. 3 Tax holiday informationSales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 1 and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 3.

Rick Scott. Combined spending for back to school and college is expected to reach about $5 billion in Florida, and tax-exempt sales will account for an estimated $600 million of that spending. During the tax holiday weekend, there will be no state or local sales taxes due on the first $750 of the sales price of personal computers and related accessories purchased for noncommercial home or personal use. The term personal computer includes any electronic book reader, laptop, desktop, handheld, tablet, or tower computer, but does not include cellphones, video game consoles, digital media receivers, or devices that are not primarily designed to process data. The term related accessories includes keyboards, mice, personal digital assistants, monitors (except those with TV tuners), modems, routers, and nonrecreational software. Clothing and shoes up to $100 will be tax exempt, along with school supplies up to $15. That includes pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, notebooks, notebook paper, legal pads, binders, lunch boxes, construction paper, markers, folders, poster board, composition books, poster paper, scissors, cellophane tape, glue or paste, rulers, computer disks, protractors, compasses, and calculators. According to the National Retail Federations 2014 Back-to-School Survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, the average family with children in grades K-12 will spend $669.28 on apparel, shoes, supplies and electronics, up 5 percent from $634.78 last year. A study by The Washington Economics Group (WEG) that examined the impact of the back-to-school sales tax holiday confirmed that increased spending during the three-day period in 2010 generated $115 million more in taxable sales, and $293 million more in overall sales. That generated an additional $7 million in revenue to the state of Florida. The Florida Retail Federation is the statewide trade association representing retailers the businesses that sell directly to consumers. Florida retailers provide one out of every five jobs in the state, pay more than $49 billion in wages annually, and collect and remit more than $20 billion in sales taxes for Floridas government each year.

TAXCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Community calendar Most of us had plenty of energy as children and it usually continued well after middle age. Looking back, I wonder if we appreciated this or just accepted it as our due. As the years pass, there comes a time for all of us when that vitality slowly shrinks. Everything takes us longer to accomplish while time seems to be rushing by faster and faster. Wherever were at mentally and physically now, we should realize we wont be coming this way again. Like an old car, there is always something that is going to break down. So lets appreciate what point were at right now as we probably wont be passing this way again. Each moment is definitely different than the moments we spent years ago. Still they are precious and we need to appreciate them.

The movie is about a pathetic older guy. Hes under the impression that hes won a million dollars and wants to go to another state to collect it. Bruce Dern is very good in the part. The movie is shot in black and white. This helps with the prevailing sense of melancholy and decay. Its basically a comedy but there are some tender scenes that leave a lump in your throat.

When I got there, they had me park my old truck in the corral, Joe began. You mean the parking lot, interrupted Charlie, a worldlier fellow. I walked up the trail to the door, Joe continued. The sidewalk, Charlie corrected him. Inside the door, I was met by this dude, Joe went on. The usher, Charlie explained. Well, the usher led me down the chute, Joe said. You mean the aisle, Charlie said. Then, he led me to a stall and told me to sit there, Joe continued. Pew, Charlie retorted. Yeah, recalled Joe.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 000IP0R 6~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com THE ROMANOV SISTERS By Helen RappaportIn The Romanov Sisters, author Helen Rappaport recounts the fairy-tale lives of the four Grand Duchesses, but like many fairy tales theirs is infused with nightmare. Russias last imperial family consisted of Tsar Nicholas, Tsarina Alexandra, their daughtersOlga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasiaand the long-awaited, gravely ill heir Alexey whose birth warranted 301 gun salutes (girls warranted only 101). Rappaport is clearly haunted by the treatment of these four uniquely different daughters as a mere collective in matching dresses and summer hats. Cut off from the outside world, they had only each other to play hide-and-seek with, drink tea with, and suffer with through a bout of measles. From the moment their brother was born, the girls faded into the background while teams of doctors struggled to manage the tsarevichs royal disease hemophiliabecause the slightest bang on a knee could mean death to the boy. Only the wizard Gregory Rasputin could bring Alexey back from the brink time and again. To this day researchers are baffled by his miraculous powers of suggestion. The continuing wise counsel of Gregory sustains Alexandra through various illnesses, real or psychosomatic, and many of her sons emergencies. She believes in Rasputin, regarding him as a just man, a saint. Not wishing to revisit the familys wrenching last days since that was the subject of her earlier book Ekaterinburg: The Last Days of the Romanovs, the author relies on the trivia and boredom of palace lifenanny problems, quarrels and tantrums. However, halfway through the book the safe, unchallenging, insular world that the Romanov sisters had known until now was about to change dramatically. It occurs when a driver takes a wrong turn in Sarajevo and a bullet flies into the archduke of Austria. The world is suddenly at war, including Russia, a country humiliated by defeat in its war against the Japanese just ten years earlier. In tragic irony a marriage of one of the older sisters might have spared at least one Romanov daughter a violent, early death. But both Olga and Tatiana found Prince Carol of Romania so revolting that they deliberately made themselves unattractive to him. Romania remained a neutral country throughout World War 1. This is a long, often fascinating account of the royals, though dry in spots and recommended mostly for history buffs.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 25, 2014 Sometimes the gullibility of Americans is beyond description. When the story broke last month that thousands of children, reportedly up from 6,000 in 2011 to 54,000 so far in 2014, have crossed killer deserts, cartel infested drug territories, and in most instances more than one country, I knew a con game was in the making. I could not get my kids, of which I had seven, to clean their bedrooms. Had my preteens been begged, beaten, or bribed with a million dollars to leave their home and walk to Guatemala it would have never happened. It is most unlikely that they would have known which direction to go and would have been lost three hours out. Nor would 99 percent of parents allow their children to do so. Most parents would run in front of a car to save their child, not hand them over to the dangers of hostile environments or potential sexual perverts to get them to America. This definitely did not and does not pass the smell test. There is much more to this story. There must exist massive organization and funding behind the scenes. Herding children is an abusive activity, ask any elementary school teacher, and drug cartels could not possibly be up to the task of changing diapers on the trail. Actually crossing the high border fences confronted with scary gun toting border guards and flashing twirling lights, without serious adult assistance is not kids play either. I was shocked at how many news organizations took this invasion at face value. There is an American organization or at least American money conspiring somewhere to bring this on in a deliberate attempt to weaken our southern border. It would not just happen naturally in a thousand years. It is not just that gangs roam the streets of Central America making kids want to run to America, nor is it likely that President Barack Obama alone convinced so many to flood our border, there is much more to this story. So newsmakers do not be so gullible, please get the story behind the story. I am not alone in my gut feelings that kids could not do this by themselves; the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers recently released a statement decrying this child invasion as a humanitarian crisis. They wrote: It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor Illegal Alien children at risk for purely political purposes. They then blamed the government for aiding and abating the crisis. Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government. Moreover, they continued, Anyone that has taken two six to seven year old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States. They doubted that, even the Cartels would undertake that chore at any price (Former Border Patrol Agents: Illegal Immigration Crisis Contrived, The New American, July 7, 2014, p. 7). No, there has to be collusion between at least the Mexican and American governments, they reasoned. This operation is way too big for children to plan and execute and the establishment media should be all over those who are. Lets begin with, most come from El Salvador and Honduras. Their migration to the United States would require their exiting their countries border and entering and exiting both Guatemala and Mexico before entering the United Statespotentially six check points. When a child appears without an escort adults notice and everyone teams up to return him to his place. Why did not the governments of these countries stop, detain, and return these children long before they got to this The date of July 20 has a special meaning to a lot of people. For most, its the anniversary of the moon landing by Neil Armstrong 45 years ago this year. Many of us can remember sitting in front of our televisions and watching, in many cases with awe, as Armstrong bounced down from his ladder onto the surface of the moon, the first human being to do so. His quote of one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind has become part of American lore. Of course, there were the few who said the whole thing was a fake, that the landing was in the Mojave Desert or some other place. Most of us dont put a whole lot of stock in these philosophies. As a newspaperman, I join in all the people of the world in celebrating what at the time was a stunning achievement. As a person, though, July 20 has an entirely different meaning for me. My late mother was born on July 20, 1914, in New York City. If you do the math, that means that this past Sunday she would have been 100 years old. I took a ride Sunday to the Florida National Cemetery in Sumter County where my mom is laid to rest with my father. She died in 1997, he in 2004. It had been a while since I had been down there, but I drove up to their site without hesitation. They are in Section 317, marker No. 46, a number that is ingrained in my brain. Despite the thousands of gravestones and cremation plaques, when you have a personal stake in the location, its easy to find. After standing over their plaque for a while as the emotion welled up inside of me, I moved about 30 yards to the nearest bench and sat down, just meditating on the situation. I had asked God to tell them that I missed them and hoped they were all right. Im not one of these people, usually athletes, who believe that relatives are looking down from above and rooting for them. I believe that people in heaven are so enraptured with the presence of God that what happens here no longer matters to their spiritual existence. I do think, though, that there is telepathic communication in the next life whereby they can be told that Im thinking about them. It was a fairly warm, but not stifling day Sunday about noon. There were lots of clouds moving across the sky that allowed the sun to have an in-and-out day, keeping the temperature down. There was no wind. The only thing moving, ever so slightly, was the moss hanging from the old shade trees. Even the birds seemed to respect a persons need for solitude. A few could be heard in the distance, but in the several surrounding trees there was nary a sound. Finally I arose and went back to my car. A couple of vehicles had passed by since I arrived, but no person had interrupted my thoughts during my visit. I headed out to the Interstate about a mile away and turned north back toward Ocala, alone with my thoughts as I drove. There was no radio or CD player this day. I know there were a lot of people thinking about Neil Armstrong and what July 20, 1969, with his famous statement, meant to all of us. But in my mind, I could only think of one saying: Happy Birthday, Mom.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Its nice, though, when a governmental agency tries. In this day of permissive liberal attitudes toward indecency and the flaunting of behavior that never would have been accepted not too long ago, the Ocala City Council last week passed a law concerning the low-riding pants that show off underwear, usually boxer shorts. Led by Council member Mary Rich, the law was passed easily. That, of course, opened up a firestorm of criticism by the liberals and, in some cases, the media, about individual rights, etc. We dont understand what part of the word underwear is it that these folks dont understand? To us the word under has always meant below. Underwear is something you wear below your outer garments. These people, however, forget that decent residents of the area have rights too. We have the right not to have to look at peoples underwear as we drive down the street. We have the right not to see too much when one of these people, usually young and usually male, bend over. Wed like to see an accompanying law passed by the County Commission. Lest you think that this law is racially-based, consider that the force behind this law, Councilwoman Rich, is the only African-American on the City Council. With a little background checking, we found that the term for wearing pants this way is called sagging. Those who approve of this form of dress might be interested in knowing where the practice started. Apparently, it started in prisons in the pre-jumpsuit days. Belts were taken away from prisoners so they couldnt hang themselves, and therefore their pants sagged. We hope the city stands its ground in this, and we hope that those who wish to emulate prisoners from the old days, get the message: Pull your pants up.

READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Harold Pease PLEASESEEPEASE, PAGE10 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Coyote articleI was quite disturbed about the comments made about the coyotes being seen in the area and how they were portrayed as doggie eating monsters. Recommending the use of wasp spray is stupid, cruel, and potentially harmful to all beings around the area sprayed. If there is any kind of wind, that stuff can come back on you and take both you and Fido out, as rotenone paralyzes the lungs. Pepper spray can also be detrimental to those who wield it if not properly trained in its use (as law enforcement officers are). I also have a strong feeling that using wasp spray on wildlife is probably against the law here in Florida (I am a retired game warden from another state and yes, I would cite you for that action). Afraid of wildlife encounters? Then stay away from wooded areas. To be safe and non-harmful to natures creatures, carry a survival or life guard whistle with you (available where they sell hunting supplies). A loud blast of sound will chase away a coyote without spraying dangerous toxins all over the place. Use a little common sense and think about where you are walking your pet, but dont blind or injure a wild creature, or yourself for that matter.

No matter how hard I work, I do not seem to be getting any further along in life. Could it be that somewhere in my past, I peaked and did not realize it? If so, I wish I knew about it so at least I could have the consolation that I have peaked. This week I celebrate another birthday. This is a rut I am talking about. After all, I celebrate my birthday every year on the same day. The only reason I celebrate it on that day is because my mother said that was the day I was born. What if she lied about my birthday? After all, there is that issue with Santa Claus! I cannot prove one way or the other that I was born on a particular day because knowing what I do know now it is very easy to manipulate paperwork and birth certificates. It might be old age, but I just do not trust anybody about anything these days. I do not even trust myself. In the early days of my life, my parents told a few things that have proven not exactly true. I would not say they were lying to me they were just protecting me from the gruesomeness of truth. I mentioned Santa Claus. The thing that irks me about Santa Claus is that now that I am older and have children and grandchildren I am supposed to be Santa Claus. Who in the world made up that rule? Then there is the whole issue about the tooth fairy. It took me a long time to figure out that the tooth fairy did not really exist. Several times I extracted teeth ahead of time in order to get some cash from the tooth fairy. I frequently questioned why the tooth fairy was so stingy with his giving until I figured out that the tooth fairy was none other than my father, known for his closed cash policy. Growing up in Pennsylvania one of the big factors had to do with Punxsutawney Phil. It took me a long time to figure out that that little rodent was not who my parents said he was. If he was who they said he was, he sure was not very good at predicting the future. A lot of things my parents told me turned out not to be true, so why should I put a lot of stock in believing that my birthday is the exact day I was born? According to them, I get to celebrate my birthday one day out of the year and a specific day that I believe they picked out. Now what I want to know is, why can I pick my own birthday? After all, it is MY birthday! While I am on that subject, why cant I celebrate my birthday whenever I want to, why cant I celebrate my birthday every month? After all, nobody gets tired of eating birthday cake. Now that I am older (I am not quite sure how old I really am because I am not sure my parents were exactly forthcoming in telling me the year I was born) what am I supposed to do? Personally, I would like to establish a set of rules associated with my birthday. I do not care what other people do about their birthday, it is my birthday and I should be able to set the rules. I think the first rule I would establish is, there should be no surprise birthday parties. If it is my birthday, I know when it is. If it is my birthday, I should be in charge of planning the party. After all, I know what I would like. Who in the world started putting birthday candles on a birthday cake. I have been to several birthday parties and watched the birthday boy blow out those candles. After seeing him blow out those candles, I had no desire to eat the cake subjected to his spitladen breath. After all, germs and I are not amigos. Do not let this get around, but when there are candles on my birthday cake, I make sure my tongue is well lubricated before I start blowing out those candles. After all, I love to share. Another rule I would like to put in place has to do with birthday presents. It seems quite hypocritical for somebody to go out and buy a birthday present, wrap it up in fancy birthday wrapping paper and then bring it to me so that I can unwrap that paper to get to the birthday present. If I am going to have birthday presents I think I should be the one to buy those presents. Everybody who wants me to celebrate my birthday could slip me a fiver and let me go out and buy Now a year older, but not that much smarter Out to Pastor Rev.

There has to exist organized collusion on the part of these governments they do not just allow anyone to cross their borders. The nightly news now speaks of children who died making the 1500-mile excursion or failed in their effort to cross the Rio Grande River. Our hearts are heavy. This is mega child abuse, as is gang child rape along the way, and American perpetrators should be flushed out, convicted, and serve prison time. Those who surrender to border patrol agents speak of the belief spread in their countries that America welcomes children. Congress must have hearings on this most unlikely child invasion of the United States. Americans who may have intentionally perpetrated this falsehood, with the intent to weaken border security, should also be identified and prosecuted. Then too, those holding high office found to have intentionally encouraged this myth by not enforcing existing law must be turned out of office even if it is a president of the United States.Dr. Harold Pease is an expert on the United States Constitution.

PEASECONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 boxes of crayons (24 each), 2-10 pkgs of notebook paper, 2 boxes of tissues, composition books, box of zip-lock bags, 2-6 glue sticks, 2-4 bottles Elmers glue, colored pencils, expo markers/dry erase markers (cannot be removed from clothing), scissors (Fiskars), and of course, ear buds or headphones to plug into a computer (2nd grade, at least), etc, etc, etc,. on the first day of school? This is a compilation of items, but differing amounts of them!! And not all items are listed!! Now, the first day of school is a nightmare for most teachers, with all that they have to do reports, lists, seating, etc. I was a teacher. I was unaware that year that this policy was coming into effect. On the first day of school, imagine a room full of students with enough supplies to go to the moon and back!! There was not enough room in the room!!!! What are we teaching our children? Most of this stuff will get tossed about until it is no good. Children get frustrated about losing it or having it stolen, or just not enough room in the locker. What are we teaching our children? To be conservative? Most of these supplies will be wasted. And I must notify you of the discontinuance of teaching cursive writing. I learned it in first grade, as most people did. And most still have great penmanship. But apparently our modern children are smart enough for computers, but not smart enough to learn to write. I saw the Declaration of Independence recently, and was saddened by the thought that these children will not be able to read it as I did. Waiting until fourth grade to teach cursive is too late the roads in the brain have been cemented. In first grade, they are eager and anxious to learn it. It is an adult thing that they want to emulate. Parents please just dont take a back seat as to what is going on in the schools. You dont have to be a maniacal advocate, just be informed, and logical. Antionette B. Kimball Ocala ChoiceSome time ago I had a conversation with a friend. As a young woman she ineffectively used birth control resulting in an unwanted and frighteningly unsupported pregnancy, She was able to end the pregnancy at an early stage. The greatest angst she experienced in the process was from the obnoxious, photo-toting, anti-abortion protesters who unsuccessfully tried to invade her personal, thoughtful, religious decision. Later as a mother of active, childbearing age young women, she made birth control available to them even before it was needed so they would never need to exercise their freedom to choose abortion. I support birth control (free if necessary) and available, safe abortions when necessary or desired. Whether a difficult decision, a practical decision, a familial, religious or personal decision, it should be the womans decision alone. It should never be a decision dictated by other peoples religious beliefs or other peoples experiences. It is a decision that rightfully resides with a woman subject only to her religion, values and mores period. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Mon.

Finally, I think if it is my birthday and I am celebrating it, I should get to pick what year I am celebrating. Good old King Solomon had it right when he wrote, The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head (Proverbs 20:29). You are only young once but you can be old for a very long time. I am learning to live with it.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty is, as always, admirable. But you might want to be more tactful in discussing a sensitive issue with a family member. Remember: You can give advice without giving offense. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unexpected workplace snag should be handled quickly and efficiently so that it leaves time for family get-togethers. You might soon get that long-sought apology. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor family matters, especially where children might be involved. Spending time with loved ones helps restore some much-needed balance to your typically busy schedule. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That clear-cut agreement might not be quite so straightforward after all. Recheck for language that could make you liable for hidden costs and other unpleasant surprises. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Careful, Kitty. Better to deal with someone with proven reliability than with a big talker who promises much but cant confirm that he will deliver. Your social life really zings this weekend. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your matchmaking skills are at peak performance levels both in helping to staff workplace teams for upcoming projects and for bringing people together on a more personal basis. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Youre finally seeing some progress with your new venture. But be prepared for it to continue at a slower pace than youre used to. Meanwhile, a loved one could be preparing a surprise. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A family members success pulls you into the spotlight as well. Enjoy it, but dont let it overshadow or otherwise obstruct what youre doing with your own creative projects. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Using what you already know might not be quite enough to get a proposed project off the ground. Look for any details that might help tilt the scales in your favor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Good news: While a changing workplace environment can be daunting for some, it could be the challenge youve been hoping for. If so, confront it with confidence and move on. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Its a good time to recheck travel arrangements for any changes that could work to your advantage. Aspects also favor strengthening and restoring old, fraying relationships. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Using your intuitive reasoning helps you cut right through the double-talk and go straight to whats really going on around you. Larry Silver will be our comedic star on Monday, Aug. 4. Larry is a widely traveled professional hypnotist as well as a great stand-up comedian. He has stared and played in hundreds of venues through out the Bahamas; United States and Canada with Florida his base of operations. The Groucho Comedy Club is one of the best known and oldest comedy clubs on Floridas East Coast and is the brain child of Larry. In addition, he incorporates hypnotism into his performances with interaction between him and the audience. His act is hilarious but never embarrassing or harmful. There are two shows for your convenience; the first at 5:30 and the second at 7:30. Tickets are free but you must have a ticket to gain admission. See Geri today to make sure you have a seat in our clubhouse. Because tickets are limited there wont be any at the door.

These are just a few of the items to be clarified and resolved. You can see this is a very important meeting. Even if you were a member of a team last year; please plan to attend.

Summer Fest Aug. 27Summer Fest will return to Cherrywood on Aug. 27 featuring the Gator Bone Trio and a delicious Bratwurst dinner. These events draw a near capacity crowd to our clubhouse.

Summer Fest is sponsored by the generosity of Chris and Mario Zacco and is free to all residents. Tickets are required to insure that everyone gets fed and has a seat to enjoy the band. Plan to attend this great evening of delicious food; excellent entertainment and friendly socializing. Trivia NightOur Trivia Night last Wednesday was a riot; or nearly a riot would be a better description. Quizmaster Rich Hurley barely avoided the tar and feathers as contestants scored record lows on his questions. Fred and Marion; Eugene and Donna took first place with a score of 33 out of 44. The last place team who will go unnamed scored an 11. Laughter mixed with groans and everyone managed to have a fun night. Our Quizmaster for September will be Fred OHern who has promised to cut us a bit of slack in the questions. The subject matter will be General Information which should give all the teams an equal opportunity at winning. Trivia Night is every third Wednesday at 7 p.m. It only costs a dollar and everyone has a great time; even the losers. The winners not only receive a small cash prize; they also get the all important bragging rights for an entire month. Proceeds of the Trivia program go to the Patriot Dog Project so even if you are on a losing team; you are still a winner. Come join the fun on Aug. 20.Movie NightTreat yourself to a great flick on Tuesday Aug. 5 in the clubhouse when the feature presentation will be The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. This 2013 remake of the classic stars Ben Stiller as the adventurous executive who travels in search of the perfect picture for Life magazines last issue. This romantic comedy has been nominated for the Best Picture of 2013 by the New York Times and won the film festival award. This film combines love and humor; adventure and an intriguing plot all of which equals first class entertainment. Movie Night includes comfortable seating; climate controlled temperatures; the big screen presentation and of course free popcorn. Bring along your own drinks and snacks if you wish but dont miss this movie. Admission is free for all of our residents so bring your friends and neighbors a little before 7; find a good seat and relax for a super evening of entertainment.Help WantedAre you retired and are looking for something to do to make extra money? Does grueling hard work not bother you? Are you willing to spend long tedious hours at a thankless job? Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, were sorry these are not your kind of jobs. Seriously, what we are looking for are a few volunteers who will help out with Trivia Night and Movie Night. If you would like to be the quizmaster; or would like to help do the set up; we need you for our Trivia Night. This will require at the most; two hours once a month and will cover for our leadership as they take vacations and get a break. If you would like to be a quizmaster, Fred will show you how to work the power point program on the computer. Because new people bring in fresh ideas for subjects and questions and extra energy; they are particularly encouraged to come out and help. On Movie Night we need people to help with chairs; making popcorn and lemonade and in general assisting in getting everything set up and torn down. We have pretty good attendance at this event every month so we could use a few extra hands for a half hour before and after the movie to assist. Theres no pay for these positions but there is the gratitude of your fellow residents and of the people who have been doing this for so long. Everyone needs a break from routine so volunteer for one night or volunteer for several. All help is very much appreciated. Contact Fred OHern if you can be a volunteer and help sustain these two major activities in Cherrywood. RemindersThere will be no Veterans Club meeting in August. The next scheduled meeting will be Sept. 4 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. Our fitness guru Deb Rivera will be on vacation from July 28 through Aug. 1 so she wont be holding any classes. Have a fun and safe vacation Deb.

In anticipation of the holiday, our local cowboys have been celebrating so much that some of the horses got loose and wound up in the Alley with their tails.Hey DudeBack some years ago a local cowboy bought some land in southwest Ocala with plans to start his own dude ranch. So what did you name the ranch? asked his best friend when he came to visit. We had a hard time, couldnt agree on anything. We finally settled on the Double R Lazy L Triple Horseshoe Bar-7 Lucky Diamond ABC XYZ Ranch. Wow! his friend was impressed. So where are all the horses? None of em survived the branding.Off the cuffCowboys Joe and Fess were resting their horses out in the wilderness near Williston. Whatd Emmaline give yew for yore birthday? asked Joe. Pair of cufflinks, said Fess. But I aint got no use for them. I cant even find anyplace to get my wrists pierced. Look out!Back in the old west a cowboy went to the outhouse. He heard a noise, so he looked inside. Lo and behold, there was an Indian down in the hole. The cowboy said, How long have you been down there in that awful hole? The Indian replied, Many moons. Later, the cowboy ordered some toilet paper from a mail-order catalog. They wrote back and requested that he look in his catalog to give them the exact order number. He answered them right back and told them that if he had their catalog, he sure wouldnt need the toilet paper.RoundupCowboys cook their meals on the range. The cowboy dressed in brown paper was arrested for rustling. Cowboys get bronchitis from riding wild horses. Two cowboys staggered out of a zoo with their clothes in shreds. One turned to the other and said, That lion dancing sure aint as restful as they made out. Wild horses are quite unstable. A racehorse can take several thousand people for a ride at the same time. A cowboy was asked what horse sense meant to him. He thought about it, and then chuckled and said, I reckon its nothing more than the ability to say nay. The racehorse went lame early. It was the first out of its gait. A cowboy put super glue on his sixshooters and now always sticks to his guns.Real dudeThe lady had come to a dude ranch and was all ready to take her first horseback ride. She said to the cowboy, Can you get me a nice gentle pony? Shore, said the cowboy. What kind of saddle do you want, English or western? Whats the difference? asked the lady. The western saddle has a horn on it, said the cowboy. If the traffic is so thick here that I need a horn on my saddle, I dont believe I want to ride. Chew on thisWhen Roy Rogers visited Ocala he brought a brand new pair of cowboy boots; but he left them out on the porch of the ranch house and, in the morning, discovered theyve been gnawed by a mountain lion. Roy grabbed a rifle and his horse and went out to kill the varmint. Three hours later Roy came back with a dead mountain lion tied across his saddle. A ranch hand went up to him and said, Pardon me, Roy. Is that the cat that chewed your new shoes? Git along little dogie!

around the house is as much a danger to people as it is to the animals we are trying to rid from our yards. As Laura said, Coyotes are a constant menace to family pets. Few of us who live in Marion County have not seen at least one of these cunning and quick predators. Laura mentioned carrying wasp spray when walking your dog and thats an excellent idea. Other options include having pepper spray or what the post office uses; Halt. Another article told of an elderly lady using loud noises to scare away these aggressive animals. Yelling; screaming; a bull horn or air horn of some type could all produce excellent results. One threat that is seldom spoken of is that of birds. If you have a small dog or a cat; when they are outside they look like every other meal to a hawk; eagle; owl or other fowl. Look up because if you arent near to your pet; they can be gone in seconds. The greatest protection any of our pets can have is an alert and prepared owner. Nature is governed by the law of survival; only humans put love and compassion into the equation. That is why we are humane and can afford the luxury of love. Show your love for your pets by protecting them. Dont let them out in the yard by themselves; dont let them be without you at the end of their leash and most of all; stay alert to the dangers that are all around you. If you have any comments or suggestions about the Cherrywood Section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.comFriday, July 25, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com DAPAD_2IN ADVERTISINGTO ADVERTISECall489-2731 14~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Back to schoolSeveral weeks ago I told everyone that on Aug 9 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Marion Oaks would be celebrating their Back to School Bash. This is a program that gives needy children a little help with getting shots; physicals; having fun and very importantly, getting back packs filled with school supplies. Going to school is tough enough on most youngsters but going to school without the right supplies makes it even worse. We need to motivate our young people to succeed and theres no better way than making sure they have the tools they need. In our clubhouse you will find a huge box for donations of such things as back packs; notebooks; essay books; crayons; colored pencils; pencils; erasers; scissors; paper of all types and just about anything school supply related. We only have a couple of weeks to get this box ready for pick up. Time flies by and it was in June that I first began telling everyone about this project. Now the deadline date is nearly on us so we must move quickly to make sure the young people get their goodies. You dont have to be a resident of Cherrywood to donate to this project. Just purchase some school supplies and come by the clubhouse to drop them off. All donations are greatly appreciated and will help a child in need.Reading PalsTheres still time to sign up for the Reading Pals project. This volunteer program is designed to help kindergarten students improve their reading; comprehension and language skills. Basically the program works by pairing a student and a volunteer in the library of a local school for 1 hour per week. The volunteer reads selected books to the little one and lets the student read to the adult. By sharing they become Pals. Total volunteer time required is about 25 hours through out the school year. A short training course is given to help the volunteers know how to assist their individual student. If youre a grandparent you can remember reading to your children and grand babies; this project gives you a chance to repeat those wonderful memories. If you can read you can do just about anything in the world. Your dreams can all come true if you are young and have the ability to learn. You can give a child the priceless gift of knowledge and enrich your own life by that giving. Contact Jan Hathaway; Reading Pals Literacy Manager at 732-9696 extension 212 for details and more information on making a difference in a childs life. Flu shotsOn Sept. 5 in the Cherrywood clubhouse you can get your important flu shots from trained professionals. If your health care professional recommends that you get a flu shot this year; contact Geri and get your name on the list and just show up between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m. The flu is a sometimes fatal disease and strikes seniors hardest of all. Dont take any chances this year; make sure you are inoculated so you can enjoy all the exciting and fun activities here at Cherrywood.From your reporterMy topic this week concerns Wildlife. Before I became a senior citizen; as us old folks are politely referred to; wild life had a different meaning for me but thats another story. The wild life Im discussing in this article concerns the animals that are all around us. I had two inspirations for this story. The first was one of my neighbors emailed me about finding two rabbits that had apparently been poisoned. She found the two little critters on her property with no apparent wounds so she was concerned that some one was putting out poison for them. The second inspiration for this article came from Laura Smith in her Oak Run column on coyotes in last weeks Citizen Newspaper. Because of these two concerns I wanted to alert the people of Cherrywood about the dangers that are in our and every neighborhood in Marion County. Of course the most dangerous animal in the wild is the human being. This is probably true because we dont understand the wonders of nature and its cycles. For example, some well intentioned people like to feed wild animals. Not only does this make them less afraid of humans; it also diminishes their instincts to get their own food. Neither of these outcomes is good. On the opposite side of the coin, some people put out poisons to kill off animals that they deem to be pests. Rabbits are one kind of critter that might get in their vegetable gardens or flowers. Putting out poison to kill them off can result in the death of not only the varmint but also of a family pet. Poison is never a good idea because it opens the doors of liability and personal danger. Even having the toxins CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE19 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Read the classifieds request, arrangement have been made to schedule an additional class and practice time for the summer months.

Our program chairperson, Carolyn Sokolik, has arranged for Dave to speak about the entertainment opportunities and life in Ocala. Dave is a very humorous writer whose column appears every Friday in the Local and State section of the paper. This program is one of five that the Friends of Oak Run Library facilitate during the year for our friends that support the Oak Run Library. You can still join the Friends for only $3 a year so that you can enjoy Dave Schlenker and the delicious homemade treats made by our librarians. Your editor for this column, Laurie Smith, raved about these goodies a few weeks ago. The price of books has drastically increased and your donations of $3 a year help the library purchase new books. Books average $25 each and that means it takes over eight memberships in the Friends to purchase each book. We hope to see you in the library soon.BocceWe start our league play on Monday, Sept. 8.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Dear readers, do you recall that I mentioned it will probably be a little slow with so many residents on vacation or gone north. Well just continue reading as I am so impressed with all the activities taking place. All research shows us that as we age being involved in some way is great for both body and mind. There are many groups in our community that get together for hand and foot (card game), dominos or sequence. Do the new residents know that there are card games being offered in the Island Club and also the Card Room? It is a great way to meet others. You can find out times in your monthly Newsletter. I received a call from a resident, Fred Peters of the Humane Society re: coyotes. Fred, I am so glad you set me straight and I look forward to further conversations on wild life. For instance he said do not use wasp spray, as it would blind them and that could be a problem. Pepper spray if need be. Do not feed wildlife as it is against the law. Keep alert when walking your dog on a leash. Coyotes normally will leave you alone so do not be afraid to be out walking your pet. I asked him why we did not know about him and his expertise on wildlife when so many residents were upset about coyotes and had received so much false information. Well we know him now. Again I thank Fred for taking the time to call me. It is nice to know people are reading my column and the weekly Citizen. LauraLine Dance classesTuesday Evening Line Dance Class expanded to Monday for the Summer. The Oak Run Introductory/Newbie line dance class was started in May at the request of many of the Oak Run residents. By slightly adjusting and rescheduling of the existing regular ongoing Tuesday evening line dance classes, the new class was added at the end of the evening (6:15-7 p.m.) as a trial basis. The new class is doing overwhelming well. The students love it. They are enjoying the dancing as well as the company of their friends and neighbors. They have been learning and dancing the Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Boot Scootin Boogie and other easy dances done at socials. They have been telling their neighbors to attend and have been requesting that class be ongoing and a longer time frame then 45 minutes.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Dear readers, do you recall that I mentioned it will probably be a little slow with so many residents on vacation or gone north. Well just continue reading as I am so impressed with all the activities taking place. All research shows us that as we age being involved in some way is great for both body and mind. There are many groups in our community that get together for hand and foot (card game), dominos or sequence. Do the new residents know that there are card games being offered in the Island Club and also the Card Room? It is a great way to meet others. You can find out times in your monthly Newsletter. I received a call from a resident, Fred Peters of the Humane Society re: coyotes. Fred, I am so glad you set me straight and I look forward to further conversations on wild life. For instance he said do not use wasp spray, as it would blind them and that could be a problem. Pepper spray if need be. Do not feed wildlife as it is against the law. Keep alert when walking your dog on a leash. Coyotes normally will leave you alone so do not be afraid to be out walking your pet. I asked him why we did not know about him and his expertise on wildlife when so many residents were upset about coyotes and had received so much false information. Well we know him now. Again I thank Fred for taking the time to call me. It is nice to know people are reading my column and the weekly Citizen. LauraLine Dance classesTuesday Evening Line Dance Class expanded to Monday for the Summer. The Oak Run Introductory/Newbie line dance class was started in May at the request of many of the Oak Run residents. By slightly adjusting and rescheduling of the existing regular ongoing Tuesday evening line dance classes, the new class was added at the end of the evening (6:15-7 p.m.) as a trial basis. The new class is doing overwhelming well. The students love it. They are enjoying the dancing as well as the company of their friends and neighbors. They have been learning and dancing the Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle, Boot Scootin Boogie and other easy dances done at socials. They have been telling their neighbors to attend and have been requesting that class be ongoing and a longer time frame then 45 minutes.

around the house is as much a danger to people as it is to the animals we are trying to rid from our yards. As Laura said, Coyotes are a constant menace to family pets. Few of us who live in Marion County have not seen at least one of these cunning and quick predators. Laura mentioned carrying wasp spray when walking your dog and thats an excellent idea. Other options include having pepper spray or what the post office uses; Halt. Another article told of an elderly lady using loud noises to scare away these aggressive animals. Yelling; screaming; a bull horn or air horn of some type could all produce excellent results. One threat that is seldom spoken of is that of birds. If you have a small dog or a cat; when they are outside they look like every other meal to a hawk; eagle; owl or other fowl. Look up because if you arent near to your pet; they can be gone in seconds. The greatest protection any of our pets can have is an alert and prepared owner. Nature is governed by the law of survival; only humans put love and compassion into the equation. That is why we are humane and can afford the luxury of love. Show your love for your pets by protecting them. Dont let them out in the yard by themselves; dont let them be without you at the end of their leash and most of all; stay alert to the dangers that are all around you. If you have any comments or suggestions about the Cherrywood Section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.comFriday, July 25, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com DAPAD_2IN ADVERTISINGTO ADVERTISECall489-2731 14~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Back to schoolSeveral weeks ago I told everyone that on Aug 9 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Marion Oaks would be celebrating their Back to School Bash. This is a program that gives needy children a little help with getting shots; physicals; having fun and very importantly, getting back packs filled with school supplies. Going to school is tough enough on most youngsters but going to school without the right supplies makes it even worse. We need to motivate our young people to succeed and theres no better way than making sure they have the tools they need. In our clubhouse you will find a huge box for donations of such things as back packs; notebooks; essay books; crayons; colored pencils; pencils; erasers; scissors; paper of all types and just about anything school supply related. We only have a couple of weeks to get this box ready for pick up. Time flies by and it was in June that I first began telling everyone about this project. Now the deadline date is nearly on us so we must move quickly to make sure the young people get their goodies. You dont have to be a resident of Cherrywood to donate to this project. Just purchase some school supplies and come by the clubhouse to drop them off. All donations are greatly appreciated and will help a child in need.Reading PalsTheres still time to sign up for the Reading Pals project. This volunteer program is designed to help kindergarten students improve their reading; comprehension and language skills. Basically the program works by pairing a student and a volunteer in the library of a local school for 1 hour per week. The volunteer reads selected books to the little one and lets the student read to the adult. By sharing they become Pals. Total volunteer time required is about 25 hours through out the school year. A short training course is given to help the volunteers know how to assist their individual student. If youre a grandparent you can remember reading to your children and grand babies; this project gives you a chance to repeat those wonderful memories. If you can read you can do just about anything in the world. Your dreams can all come true if you are young and have the ability to learn. You can give a child the priceless gift of knowledge and enrich your own life by that giving. Contact Jan Hathaway; Reading Pals Literacy Manager at 732-9696 extension 212 for details and more information on making a difference in a childs life. Flu shotsOn Sept. 5 in the Cherrywood clubhouse you can get your important flu shots from trained professionals. If your health care professional recommends that you get a flu shot this year; contact Geri and get your name on the list and just show up between the hours of 1 and 3 p.m. The flu is a sometimes fatal disease and strikes seniors hardest of all. Dont take any chances this year; make sure you are inoculated so you can enjoy all the exciting and fun activities here at Cherrywood.From your reporterMy topic this week concerns Wildlife. Before I became a senior citizen; as us old folks are politely referred to; wild life had a different meaning for me but thats another story. The wild life Im discussing in this article concerns the animals that are all around us. I had two inspirations for this story. The first was one of my neighbors emailed me about finding two rabbits that had apparently been poisoned. She found the two little critters on her property with no apparent wounds so she was concerned that some one was putting out poison for them. The second inspiration for this article came from Laura Smith in her Oak Run column on coyotes in last weeks Citizen Newspaper. Because of these two concerns I wanted to alert the people of Cherrywood about the dangers that are in our and every neighborhood in Marion County. Of course the most dangerous animal in the wild is the human being. This is probably true because we dont understand the wonders of nature and its cycles. For example, some well intentioned people like to feed wild animals. Not only does this make them less afraid of humans; it also diminishes their instincts to get their own food. Neither of these outcomes is good. On the opposite side of the coin, some people put out poisons to kill off animals that they deem to be pests. Rabbits are one kind of critter that might get in their vegetable gardens or flowers. Putting out poison to kill them off can result in the death of not only the varmint but also of a family pet. Poison is never a good idea because it opens the doors of liability and personal danger. Even having the toxins CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE19 CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 Read the classifieds request, arrangement have been made to schedule an additional class and practice time for the summer months.

Our program chairperson, Carolyn Sokolik, has arranged for Dave to speak about the entertainment opportunities and life in Ocala. Dave is a very humorous writer whose column appears every Friday in the Local and State section of the paper. This program is one of five that the Friends of Oak Run Library facilitate during the year for our friends that support the Oak Run Library. You can still join the Friends for only $3 a year so that you can enjoy Dave Schlenker and the delicious homemade treats made by our librarians. Your editor for this column, Laurie Smith, raved about these goodies a few weeks ago. The price of books has drastically increased and your donations of $3 a year help the library purchase new books. Books average $25 each and that means it takes over eight memberships in the Friends to purchase each book. We hope to see you in the library soon.BocceWe start our league play on Monday, Sept. 8.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com In addition to the entertainment and food you could win a door prize or one of the 50/50 drawings. Summer Fest is sponsored by the generosity of Chris and Mario Zacco and is free to all residents. Tickets are required to insure that everyone gets fed and has a seat to enjoy the band. Plan to attend this great evening of delicious food; excellent entertainment and friendly socializing. Trivia NightOur Trivia Night last Wednesday was a riot; or nearly a riot would be a better description. Quizmaster Rich Hurley barely avoided the tar and feathers as contestants scored record lows on his questions. Fred and Marion; Eugene and Donna took first place with a score of 33 out of 44. The last place team who will go unnamed scored an 11. Laughter mixed with groans and everyone managed to have a fun night. Our Quizmaster for September will be Fred OHern who has promised to cut us a bit of slack in the questions. The subject matter will be General Information which should give all the teams an equal opportunity at winning. Trivia Night is every third Wednesday at 7 p.m. It only costs a dollar and everyone has a great time; even the losers. The winners not only receive a small cash prize; they also get the all important bragging rights for an entire month. Proceeds of the Trivia program go to the Patriot Dog Project so even if you are on a losing team; you are still a winner. Come join the fun on Aug. 20.Movie NightTreat yourself to a great flick on Tuesday Aug. 5 in the clubhouse when the feature presentation will be The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. This 2013 remake of the classic stars Ben Stiller as the adventurous executive who travels in search of the perfect picture for Life magazines last issue. This romantic comedy has been nominated for the Best Picture of 2013 by the New York Times and won the film festival award. This film combines love and humor; adventure and an intriguing plot all of which equals first class entertainment. Movie Night includes comfortable seating; climate controlled temperatures; the big screen presentation and of course free popcorn. Bring along your own drinks and snacks if you wish but dont miss this movie. Admission is free for all of our residents so bring your friends and neighbors a little before 7; find a good seat and relax for a super evening of entertainment.Help WantedAre you retired and are looking for something to do to make extra money? Does grueling hard work not bother you? Are you willing to spend long tedious hours at a thankless job? Well, if you answered yes to any of these questions, were sorry these are not your kind of jobs. Seriously, what we are looking for are a few volunteers who will help out with Trivia Night and Movie Night. If you would like to be the quizmaster; or would like to help do the set up; we need you for our Trivia Night. This will require at the most; two hours once a month and will cover for our leadership as they take vacations and get a break. If you would like to be a quizmaster, Fred will show you how to work the power point program on the computer. Because new people bring in fresh ideas for subjects and questions and extra energy; they are particularly encouraged to come out and help. On Movie Night we need people to help with chairs; making popcorn and lemonade and in general assisting in getting everything set up and torn down. We have pretty good attendance at this event every month so we could use a few extra hands for a half hour before and after the movie to assist. Theres no pay for these positions but there is the gratitude of your fellow residents and of the people who have been doing this for so long. Everyone needs a break from routine so volunteer for one night or volunteer for several. All help is very much appreciated. Contact Fred OHern if you can be a volunteer and help sustain these two major activities in Cherrywood. RemindersThere will be no Veterans Club meeting in August. The next scheduled meeting will be Sept. 4 at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse. Our fitness guru Deb Rivera will be on vacation from July 28 through Aug. 1 so she wont be holding any classes. Have a fun and safe vacation Deb. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE14 Tomorrow is National Day of the Cowboy, a date to promote the preservation of pioneer heritage and cowboy culture. Here in Florida, it goes back to 1521 when Ponce de Leon brought in horses and cattle, making it the oldest cattle raising state in the country. In anticipation of the holiday, our local cowboys have been celebrating so much that some of the horses got loose and wound up in the Alley with their tails.Hey DudeBack some years ago a local cowboy bought some land in southwest Ocala with plans to start his own dude ranch. So what did you name the ranch? asked his best friend when he came to visit. We had a hard time, couldnt agree on anything. We finally settled on the Double R Lazy L Triple Horseshoe Bar-7 Lucky Diamond ABC XYZ Ranch. Wow! his friend was impressed. So where are all the horses? None of em survived the branding.Off the cuffCowboys Joe and Fess were resting their horses out in the wilderness near Williston. Whatd Emmaline give yew for yore birthday? asked Joe. Pair of cufflinks, said Fess. But I aint got no use for them. I cant even find anyplace to get my wrists pierced. Look out!Back in the old west a cowboy went to the outhouse. He heard a noise, so he looked inside. Lo and behold, there was an Indian down in the hole. The cowboy said, How long have you been down there in that awful hole? The Indian replied, Many moons. Later, the cowboy ordered some toilet paper from a mail-order catalog. They wrote back and requested that he look in his catalog to give them the exact order number. He answered them right back and told them that if he had their catalog, he sure wouldnt need the toilet paper.RoundupCowboys cook their meals on the range. The cowboy dressed in brown paper was arrested for rustling. Cowboys get bronchitis from riding wild horses. Two cowboys staggered out of a zoo with their clothes in shreds. One turned to the other and said, That lion dancing sure aint as restful as they made out. Wild horses are quite unstable. A racehorse can take several thousand people for a ride at the same time. A cowboy was asked what horse sense meant to him. He thought about it, and then chuckled and said, I reckon its nothing more than the ability to say nay. The racehorse went lame early. It was the first out of its gait. A cowboy put super glue on his sixshooters and now always sticks to his guns.Real dudeThe lady had come to a dude ranch and was all ready to take her first horseback ride. She said to the cowboy, Can you get me a nice gentle pony? Shore, said the cowboy. What kind of saddle do you want, English or western? Whats the difference? asked the lady. The western saddle has a horn on it, said the cowboy. If the traffic is so thick here that I need a horn on my saddle, I dont believe I want to ride. Chew on thisWhen Roy Rogers visited Ocala he brought a brand new pair of cowboy boots; but he left them out on the porch of the ranch house and, in the morning, discovered theyve been gnawed by a mountain lion. Roy grabbed a rifle and his horse and went out to kill the varmint. Three hours later Roy came back with a dead mountain lion tied across his saddle. A ranch hand went up to him and said, Pardon me, Roy. Is that the cat that chewed your new shoes? Git along little dogie!

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty is, as always, admirable. But you might want to be more tactful in discussing a sensitive issue with a family member. Remember: You can give advice without giving offense. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unexpected workplace snag should be handled quickly and efficiently so that it leaves time for family get-togethers. You might soon get that long-sought apology. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor family matters, especially where children might be involved. Spending time with loved ones helps restore some much-needed balance to your typically busy schedule. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That clear-cut agreement might not be quite so straightforward after all. Recheck for language that could make you liable for hidden costs and other unpleasant surprises. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Careful, Kitty. Better to deal with someone with proven reliability than with a big talker who promises much but cant confirm that he will deliver. Your social life really zings this weekend. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your matchmaking skills are at peak performance levels both in helping to staff workplace teams for upcoming projects and for bringing people together on a more personal basis. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Youre finally seeing some progress with your new venture. But be prepared for it to continue at a slower pace than youre used to. Meanwhile, a loved one could be preparing a surprise. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A family members success pulls you into the spotlight as well. Enjoy it, but dont let it overshadow or otherwise obstruct what youre doing with your own creative projects. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Using what you already know might not be quite enough to get a proposed project off the ground. Look for any details that might help tilt the scales in your favor. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Good news: While a changing workplace environment can be daunting for some, it could be the challenge youve been hoping for. If so, confront it with confidence and move on. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Its a good time to recheck travel arrangements for any changes that could work to your advantage. Aspects also favor strengthening and restoring old, fraying relationships. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Using your intuitive reasoning helps you cut right through the double-talk and go straight to whats really going on around you. Larry Silver will be our comedic star on Monday, Aug. 4. Larry is a widely traveled professional hypnotist as well as a great stand-up comedian. He has stared and played in hundreds of venues through out the Bahamas; United States and Canada with Florida his base of operations.

There has to exist organized collusion on the part of these governments they do not just allow anyone to cross their borders. The nightly news now speaks of children who died making the 1500-mile excursion or failed in their effort to cross the Rio Grande River. Our hearts are heavy. This is mega child abuse, as is gang child rape along the way, and American perpetrators should be flushed out, convicted, and serve prison time. Those who surrender to border patrol agents speak of the belief spread in their countries that America welcomes children. Congress must have hearings on this most unlikely child invasion of the United States. Americans who may have intentionally perpetrated this falsehood, with the intent to weaken border security, should also be identified and prosecuted. Then too, those holding high office found to have intentionally encouraged this myth by not enforcing existing law must be turned out of office even if it is a president of the United States.Dr. Harold Pease is an expert on the United States Constitution.

This is a compilation of items, but differing amounts of them!! And not all items are listed!! Now, the first day of school is a nightmare for most teachers, with all that they have to do reports, lists, seating, etc. I was a teacher. I was unaware that year that this policy was coming into effect. On the first day of school, imagine a room full of students with enough supplies to go to the moon and back!! There was not enough room in the room!!!! What are we teaching our children? Most of this stuff will get tossed about until it is no good. Children get frustrated about losing it or having it stolen, or just not enough room in the locker. What are we teaching our children? To be conservative? Most of these supplies will be wasted. And I must notify you of the discontinuance of teaching cursive writing. I learned it in first grade, as most people did. And most still have great penmanship. But apparently our modern children are smart enough for computers, but not smart enough to learn to write. I saw the Declaration of Independence recently, and was saddened by the thought that these children will not be able to read it as I did. Waiting until fourth grade to teach cursive is too late the roads in the brain have been cemented. In first grade, they are eager and anxious to learn it. It is an adult thing that they want to emulate. Parents please just dont take a back seat as to what is going on in the schools. You dont have to be a maniacal advocate, just be informed, and logical. Antionette B. Kimball Ocala ChoiceSome time ago I had a conversation with a friend. As a young woman she ineffectively used birth control resulting in an unwanted and frighteningly unsupported pregnancy, She was able to end the pregnancy at an early stage. The greatest angst she experienced in the process was from the obnoxious, photo-toting, anti-abortion protesters who unsuccessfully tried to invade her personal, thoughtful, religious decision. Later as a mother of active, childbearing age young women, she made birth control available to them even before it was needed so they would never need to exercise their freedom to choose abortion. I support birth control (free if necessary) and available, safe abortions when necessary or desired. Whether a difficult decision, a practical decision, a familial, religious or personal decision, it should be the womans decision alone. It should never be a decision dictated by other peoples religious beliefs or other peoples experiences. It is a decision that rightfully resides with a woman subject only to her religion, values and mores period. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak Run LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Mon.

No matter how hard I work, I do not seem to be getting any further along in life. Could it be that somewhere in my past, I peaked and did not realize it? If so, I wish I knew about it so at least I could have the consolation that I have peaked. This week I celebrate another birthday. This is a rut I am talking about. After all, I celebrate my birthday every year on the same day. The only reason I celebrate it on that day is because my mother said that was the day I was born. What if she lied about my birthday? After all, there is that issue with Santa Claus! I cannot prove one way or the other that I was born on a particular day because knowing what I do know now it is very easy to manipulate paperwork and birth certificates. It might be old age, but I just do not trust anybody about anything these days. I do not even trust myself. In the early days of my life, my parents told a few things that have proven not exactly true. I would not say they were lying to me they were just protecting me from the gruesomeness of truth. I mentioned Santa Claus. The thing that irks me about Santa Claus is that now that I am older and have children and grandchildren I am supposed to be Santa Claus. Who in the world made up that rule? Then there is the whole issue about the tooth fairy. It took me a long time to figure out that the tooth fairy did not really exist. Several times I extracted teeth ahead of time in order to get some cash from the tooth fairy. I frequently questioned why the tooth fairy was so stingy with his giving until I figured out that the tooth fairy was none other than my father, known for his closed cash policy. Growing up in Pennsylvania one of the big factors had to do with Punxsutawney Phil. It took me a long time to figure out that that little rodent was not who my parents said he was. If he was who they said he was, he sure was not very good at predicting the future. A lot of things my parents told me turned out not to be true, so why should I put a lot of stock in believing that my birthday is the exact day I was born? According to them, I get to celebrate my birthday one day out of the year and a specific day that I believe they picked out. Now what I want to know is, why can I pick my own birthday? After all, it is MY birthday! While I am on that subject, why cant I celebrate my birthday whenever I want to, why cant I celebrate my birthday every month? After all, nobody gets tired of eating birthday cake. Now that I am older (I am not quite sure how old I really am because I am not sure my parents were exactly forthcoming in telling me the year I was born) what am I supposed to do? Personally, I would like to establish a set of rules associated with my birthday. I do not care what other people do about their birthday, it is my birthday and I should be able to set the rules. I think the first rule I would establish is, there should be no surprise birthday parties. If it is my birthday, I know when it is. If it is my birthday, I should be in charge of planning the party. After all, I know what I would like. Who in the world started putting birthday candles on a birthday cake. I have been to several birthday parties and watched the birthday boy blow out those candles. After seeing him blow out those candles, I had no desire to eat the cake subjected to his spitladen breath. After all, germs and I are not amigos. Do not let this get around, but when there are candles on my birthday cake, I make sure my tongue is well lubricated before I start blowing out those candles. After all, I love to share. Another rule I would like to put in place has to do with birthday presents. It seems quite hypocritical for somebody to go out and buy a birthday present, wrap it up in fancy birthday wrapping paper and then bring it to me so that I can unwrap that paper to get to the birthday present. If I am going to have birthday presents I think I should be the one to buy those presents. Everybody who wants me to celebrate my birthday could slip me a fiver and let me go out and buy Now a year older, but not that much smarter Out to Pastor Rev.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, July 25, 2014 Sometimes the gullibility of Americans is beyond description. When the story broke last month that thousands of children, reportedly up from 6,000 in 2011 to 54,000 so far in 2014, have crossed killer deserts, cartel infested drug territories, and in most instances more than one country, I knew a con game was in the making. I could not get my kids, of which I had seven, to clean their bedrooms. Had my preteens been begged, beaten, or bribed with a million dollars to leave their home and walk to Guatemala it would have never happened. It is most unlikely that they would have known which direction to go and would have been lost three hours out. Nor would 99 percent of parents allow their children to do so. Most parents would run in front of a car to save their child, not hand them over to the dangers of hostile environments or potential sexual perverts to get them to America. This definitely did not and does not pass the smell test. There is much more to this story. There must exist massive organization and funding behind the scenes. Herding children is an abusive activity, ask any elementary school teacher, and drug cartels could not possibly be up to the task of changing diapers on the trail. Actually crossing the high border fences confronted with scary gun toting border guards and flashing twirling lights, without serious adult assistance is not kids play either. I was shocked at how many news organizations took this invasion at face value. There is an American organization or at least American money conspiring somewhere to bring this on in a deliberate attempt to weaken our southern border. It would not just happen naturally in a thousand years. It is not just that gangs roam the streets of Central America making kids want to run to America, nor is it likely that President Barack Obama alone convinced so many to flood our border, there is much more to this story. So newsmakers do not be so gullible, please get the story behind the story. I am not alone in my gut feelings that kids could not do this by themselves; the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers recently released a statement decrying this child invasion as a humanitarian crisis. They wrote: It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor Illegal Alien children at risk for purely political purposes. They then blamed the government for aiding and abating the crisis. Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government. Moreover, they continued, Anyone that has taken two six to seven year old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States. They doubted that, even the Cartels would undertake that chore at any price (Former Border Patrol Agents: Illegal Immigration Crisis Contrived, The New American, July 7, 2014, p. 7). No, there has to be collusion between at least the Mexican and American governments, they reasoned. This operation is way too big for children to plan and execute and the establishment media should be all over those who are. Lets begin with, most come from El Salvador and Honduras. Their migration to the United States would require their exiting their countries border and entering and exiting both Guatemala and Mexico before entering the United Statespotentially six check points. When a child appears without an escort adults notice and everyone teams up to return him to his place. Why did not the governments of these countries stop, detain, and return these children long before they got to this The date of July 20 has a special meaning to a lot of people. For most, its the anniversary of the moon landing by Neil Armstrong 45 years ago this year. Many of us can remember sitting in front of our televisions and watching, in many cases with awe, as Armstrong bounced down from his ladder onto the surface of the moon, the first human being to do so. His quote of one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind has become part of American lore. Of course, there were the few who said the whole thing was a fake, that the landing was in the Mojave Desert or some other place. Most of us dont put a whole lot of stock in these philosophies. As a newspaperman, I join in all the people of the world in celebrating what at the time was a stunning achievement. As a person, though, July 20 has an entirely different meaning for me. My late mother was born on July 20, 1914, in New York City. If you do the math, that means that this past Sunday she would have been 100 years old. I took a ride Sunday to the Florida National Cemetery in Sumter County where my mom is laid to rest with my father. She died in 1997, he in 2004. It had been a while since I had been down there, but I drove up to their site without hesitation. They are in Section 317, marker No. 46, a number that is ingrained in my brain. Despite the thousands of gravestones and cremation plaques, when you have a personal stake in the location, its easy to find. After standing over their plaque for a while as the emotion welled up inside of me, I moved about 30 yards to the nearest bench and sat down, just meditating on the situation. I had asked God to tell them that I missed them and hoped they were all right. Im not one of these people, usually athletes, who believe that relatives are looking down from above and rooting for them. I believe that people in heaven are so enraptured with the presence of God that what happens here no longer matters to their spiritual existence. I do think, though, that there is telepathic communication in the next life whereby they can be told that Im thinking about them. It was a fairly warm, but not stifling day Sunday about noon. There were lots of clouds moving across the sky that allowed the sun to have an in-and-out day, keeping the temperature down. There was no wind. The only thing moving, ever so slightly, was the moss hanging from the old shade trees. Even the birds seemed to respect a persons need for solitude. A few could be heard in the distance, but in the several surrounding trees there was nary a sound. Finally I arose and went back to my car. A couple of vehicles had passed by since I arrived, but no person had interrupted my thoughts during my visit. I headed out to the Interstate about a mile away and turned north back toward Ocala, alone with my thoughts as I drove. There was no radio or CD player this day. I know there were a lot of people thinking about Neil Armstrong and what July 20, 1969, with his famous statement, meant to all of us. But in my mind, I could only think of one saying: Happy Birthday, Mom.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen.

Its nice, though, when a governmental agency tries. In this day of permissive liberal attitudes toward indecency and the flaunting of behavior that never would have been accepted not too long ago, the Ocala City Council last week passed a law concerning the low-riding pants that show off underwear, usually boxer shorts. Led by Council member Mary Rich, the law was passed easily. That, of course, opened up a firestorm of criticism by the liberals and, in some cases, the media, about individual rights, etc. We dont understand what part of the word underwear is it that these folks dont understand? To us the word under has always meant below. Underwear is something you wear below your outer garments. These people, however, forget that decent residents of the area have rights too. We have the right not to have to look at peoples underwear as we drive down the street. We have the right not to see too much when one of these people, usually young and usually male, bend over. Wed like to see an accompanying law passed by the County Commission. Lest you think that this law is racially-based, consider that the force behind this law, Councilwoman Rich, is the only African-American on the City Council. With a little background checking, we found that the term for wearing pants this way is called sagging. Those who approve of this form of dress might be interested in knowing where the practice started. Apparently, it started in prisons in the pre-jumpsuit days. Belts were taken away from prisoners so they couldnt hang themselves, and therefore their pants sagged.

Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Note from city: Pull your pants up July 20 meaning not the same for all Central American children invade U.S.: Really? READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Harold Pease PLEASESEEPEASE, PAGE10 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Coyote articleI was quite disturbed about the comments made about the coyotes being seen in the area and how they were portrayed as doggie eating monsters. Recommending the use of wasp spray is stupid, cruel, and potentially harmful to all beings around the area sprayed. If there is any kind of wind, that stuff can come back on you and take both you and Fido out, as rotenone paralyzes the lungs. Pepper spray can also be detrimental to those who wield it if not properly trained in its use (as law enforcement officers are). I also have a strong feeling that using wasp spray on wildlife is probably against the law here in Florida (I am a retired game warden from another state and yes, I would cite you for that action). Afraid of wildlife encounters? Then stay away from wooded areas. To be safe and non-harmful to natures creatures, carry a survival or life guard whistle with you (available where they sell hunting supplies). A loud blast of sound will chase away a coyote without spraying dangerous toxins all over the place. Use a little common sense and think about where you are walking your pet, but dont blind or injure a wild creature, or yourself for that matter.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 26~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com For 27 years the dedicated musicians of The Marion Civic Chorale have brought to Marion County a wide repertoire of classical and popular music. It is time now to welcome new conductor, Joshua Head, to lead the group in its musical endeavors.

He moved to Ocala with his wife Sophia in 2012 and has endeavored to be a catalyst for beautiful music in Central Florida. Joshua is the Worship Coordinator at Grace Episcopal Church and music teacher at Ambleside School of Ocala since 2012. He is passionate about sharing great music with the next generation, teaching composer study courses at Ambleside School and instructing a voice, trumpet, piano, and guitar studio of over 20 youth and teens. He studied vocal performance at Liberty University from 2008-2012, receiving voice instruction from Dr. Wayne Kompelien and studying choral conducting with Dr. John Hugo. Joshua sang with the Liberty University Chamber Singers for four years performing the masterworks of four centuries. He has performed with the Roanoke Symphony Chorus, Roanoke Opera, and the East Carolina University Symposium Choir. During the 2009-2011 seasons, he held major roles in operas such as The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado, and Le Nozze di Figaro. Joshua has developed Ambleside Schools four choirs with year-round performances and conducts an annual Concert Series at Grace Church.

Friday, July 25, 2014 ~ 27 www.smcitizen.com 000IP0R 6~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com THE ROMANOV SISTERS By Helen RappaportIn The Romanov Sisters, author Helen Rappaport recounts the fairy-tale lives of the four Grand Duchesses, but like many fairy tales theirs is infused with nightmare. Russias last imperial family consisted of Tsar Nicholas, Tsarina Alexandra, their daughtersOlga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasiaand the long-awaited, gravely ill heir Alexey whose birth warranted 301 gun salutes (girls warranted only 101). Rappaport is clearly haunted by the treatment of these four uniquely different daughters as a mere collective in matching dresses and summer hats. Cut off from the outside world, they had only each other to play hide-and-seek with, drink tea with, and suffer with through a bout of measles. From the moment their brother was born, the girls faded into the background while teams of doctors struggled to manage the tsarevichs royal disease hemophiliabecause the slightest bang on a knee could mean death to the boy. Only the wizard Gregory Rasputin could bring Alexey back from the brink time and again. To this day researchers are baffled by his miraculous powers of suggestion. The continuing wise counsel of Gregory sustains Alexandra through various illnesses, real or psychosomatic, and many of her sons emergencies. She believes in Rasputin, regarding him as a just man, a saint. Not wishing to revisit the familys wrenching last days since that was the subject of her earlier book Ekaterinburg: The Last Days of the Romanovs, the author relies on the trivia and boredom of palace lifenanny problems, quarrels and tantrums. However, halfway through the book the safe, unchallenging, insular world that the Romanov sisters had known until now was about to change dramatically. It occurs when a driver takes a wrong turn in Sarajevo and a bullet flies into the archduke of Austria. The world is suddenly at war, including Russia, a country humiliated by defeat in its war against the Japanese just ten years earlier. In tragic irony a marriage of one of the older sisters might have spared at least one Romanov daughter a violent, early death. But both Olga and Tatiana found Prince Carol of Romania so revolting that they deliberately made themselves unattractive to him. Romania remained a neutral country throughout World War 1. This is a long, often fascinating account of the royals, though dry in spots and recommended mostly for history buffs.

When I got there, they had me park my old truck in the corral, Joe began. You mean the parking lot, interrupted Charlie, a worldlier fellow. I walked up the trail to the door, Joe continued. The sidewalk, Charlie corrected him. Inside the door, I was met by this dude, Joe went on. The usher, Charlie explained. Well, the usher led me down the chute, Joe said. You mean the aisle, Charlie said. Then, he led me to a stall and told me to sit there, Joe continued. Pew, Charlie retorted. Yeah, recalled Joe. Thats what that pretty lady said when I sat down next to her. PUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 20 Open house at fitness centerThe wait is over!

Rick Scott. Combined spending for back to school and college is expected to reach about $5 billion in Florida, and tax-exempt sales will account for an estimated $600 million of that spending. During the tax holiday weekend, there will be no state or local sales taxes due on the first $750 of the sales price of personal computers and related accessories purchased for noncommercial home or personal use. The term personal computer includes any electronic book reader, laptop, desktop, handheld, tablet, or tower computer, but does not include cellphones, video game consoles, digital media receivers, or devices that are not primarily designed to process data. The term related accessories includes keyboards, mice, personal digital assistants, monitors (except those with TV tuners), modems, routers, and nonrecreational software. Clothing and shoes up to $100 will be tax exempt, along with school supplies up to $15. That includes pens, pencils, erasers, crayons, notebooks, notebook paper, legal pads, binders, lunch boxes, construction paper, markers, folders, poster board, composition books, poster paper, scissors, cellophane tape, glue or paste, rulers, computer disks, protractors, compasses, and calculators. According to the National Retail Federations 2014 Back-to-School Survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, the average family with children in grades K-12 will spend $669.28 on apparel, shoes, supplies and electronics, up 5 percent from $634.78 last year. A study by The Washington Economics Group (WEG) that examined the impact of the back-to-school sales tax holiday confirmed that increased spending during the three-day period in 2010 generated $115 million more in taxable sales, and $293 million more in overall sales. That generated an additional $7 million in revenue to the state of Florida. The Florida Retail Federation is the statewide trade association representing retailers the businesses that sell directly to consumers. Florida retailers provide one out of every five jobs in the state, pay more than $49 billion in wages annually, and collect and remit more than $20 billion in sales taxes for Floridas government each year.

TAXCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Community calendar Most of us had plenty of energy as children and it usually continued well after middle age. Looking back, I wonder if we appreciated this or just accepted it as our due. As the years pass, there comes a time for all of us when that vitality slowly shrinks. Everything takes us longer to accomplish while time seems to be rushing by faster and faster. Wherever were at mentally and physically now, we should realize we wont be coming this way again. Like an old car, there is always something that is going to break down. So lets appreciate what point were at right now as we probably wont be passing this way again. Each moment is definitely different than the moments we spent years ago. Still they are precious and we need to appreciate them.

The movie is about a pathetic older guy. Hes under the impression that hes won a million dollars and wants to go to another state to collect it. Bruce Dern is very good in the part. The movie is shot in black and white. This helps with the prevailing sense of melancholy and decay. Its basically a comedy but there are some tender scenes that leave a lump in your throat.

The School Board wants to get a special use permit for both schools on the land in Marion Oaks. All the land is vacant except for one parcel, owned by the ODonnell family, which is squarely in the center of the land for the two schools. David Herlihy, representing the School Board, made the plea at the County Commissions zoning hearing on July 15, said the schools may be needed in 10 years and the board was trying to get ahead of the game by having sites picked out and zoned properly. Terry Thompson of the Planning and Zoning Commission, who said he was in the minority when the P&Z approved the request, talked about the one home in the middle of the parcels, with all the surrounding areas currently zoned residential. He said the ODonnells bought their house about nine years ago, and expected to be surrounded by other houses. Currently, the property sits in the undeveloped area with scenic woods all around. He accused the School Board of land banking, saying they didnt know if they were going to need this property for schools. I dont feel its the right thing to do. Chairman Carl Zalak said the consequences on these folks could be significant. However, Stan McClain said Theres a real need here, and said it was not land banking. Kathy Bryant commented, Growth is going to come to that area we have to plan. Finally the commissioners agreed on a special use permit south of the ODonnell property, which would allow construction on an elementary school to begin any time, but said that north of that home could only begin if the School Board acquires the property, whether by purchase or eminent domain. 32~ Friday, July 25, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Plans taken from school presentation to County Commission show the elementary school site in red and the middle school site in yellow, with parking in purple. The one parcel in the center of the drawing is the only house in the two tracts. School site choice isolates home in Marion Oaks Floridas Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday is bigger and better this year, and the Florida Retail Federation is working to educate consumers about some important changes in tax-exempt items. The Sales Tax Holiday is next weekend, Friday, Aug. 1 through Sunday, Aug. 3. This year, the sales tax exemption for clothing items has been increased to $100 or less per item (up from $75 or less per item in 2013). In addition, the sales tax exemption for personal computers and certain computer-related accessories will be on the first $750 of the sales price. Retailers say that will expand the list of tax-exempt items, and they expect an average increase of at least 30 percent in store traffic over the weekend because of the sales tax holiday. (Download the FRFs one-page flier here.) FRF President and CEO Rick McAllister said that Floridas strong job numbers are a good predictor of continuing growth in retail sales. Florida created 36,900 private-sector jobs in June 2014, and the statewide unemployment rate for June 2014 is 6.2 percent, down 1.2 percentage points from the June 2013 rate of 7.4 percent. Retailers are reporting a strong trend of sales growth of between 4 and 5 percent statewide, and we expect spending to remain strong through the crucial month of August, McAllister said. Floridas economy is humming along at a nice pace, and we are very pleased to see consumer spending warming up. Consumer spending is at least 70 percent of the economy, so when retailers are doing well it usually means everyone else is doing well. School supplies sales tax holiday is Aug. 1 to Aug. 3 Tax holiday informationSales tax holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 1 and ends at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 3.

This holiday does not apply to: Any item of clothing selling for more than $100; Any school supply item selling for more than $15; Books that are not otherwise exempt; Rentals or leases of any of these items; Repairs or alterations of any of these items; or Sales of clothing, school supplies, or computers and computer-related accessories in a theme park, entertainment complex, public lodging establishment, or airport.
