Story and more photos on Page 16-17. BY JIM CLARK EditorMarions United for Public Education, a local support group for public schools, has provided a summary of where it believes School Board candidates stand on the one mill referendum for schools on the ballot in November. Although that election is still three months away, the first round of School Board elections takes place in the primary on Aug. 26. The school funding referendum was approved by the Marion County School Board and sent to the ballot by Marion County Commissioners unanimously earlier this year. Here is the language voters will see on their November ballot: Shall the Marion County School Districts ad valorem millage be increased by a total of one mill, beginning July 1, 2015 and ending June 30, 2019, for the necessary operating expenses including reading, physical education, art, music, library/media and vocational programs; meeting class size requirements; and retaining State Certified teachers and paraprofessionals with oversight of these expenditures School tax: How candidates stand Coalition will host school tax discussionThe State Road 200 Coalition will meet Monday, Aug. 11, at the Collins Center at TimberRidge, Building 5000, Suite 5001 at the back of the complex. Representatives from Marions United for Education, backers of a 1 mill property tax increase on the November ballot for county schools, will be the speakers. The public is invited. PLEASESEETAX PAGE3 BY JIM CLARK EditorThe much discussed move to put a sales tax on the ballot to fund items in Marion County is apparently dead for this year. The sales tax was to be for five years and was discussed during the summer, but had not been a part of the meetings for some time. During the commissioner comments portion near the end of Tuesday mornings County Commission meeting, Commissioner David Moore brought the matter up for discussion. It quickly became clear there wasnt much interest. Commissioner Stan McClain said he was not prepared to do a sales tax at this time. Commissioner Earl Arnett followed suit, saying he was definitely not in favor of a five-year sales tax. While there was some discussion about the tax and its effect on the budget, McClain said he was against a one-time source for recurring expenses. He added, that we need to learn to live within our means. Faced with an Aug. 27 deadline for putting the item on the November ballot, commissioners closed the discussion without taking any action. They still have a meeting on Aug. 20, but did not direct that the item be placed on the agenda. There already is one tax on the ballot in November. The Marion County School Board is asking for a one-mill property tax to fund certain programs. Commissioners show little enthusiasm for sales tax Judicial choices Candidates provide views on why they should be elected Aug. 26 Denise Dymond Lyn BY ABDON SIDIBE Special to the CitizenDenise Dymond Lyn has a favorite refrain: I am from this community, I live in Citrus County, I am active in this community and this is my community.

by an independent citizens financial oversight committee? Voters will cast either a yes vote or a no vote. Marions United For Public Education says it strongly supports the school funding referendum. In 2013, we brought together the community coalition that wrote the referendum. We believe it is by far the best solution to ensuring great people and programs that help our students are both protected and restored in the years ahead. After seven years and tens of millions in cuts, we believe it is long past time to boost community investment and begin the process of restoring essential programs like art, music, libraries, and physical education. In order to improve the education our students receive, voters should know that simply cutting the budget further and expecting better results is not a serious option. Budget cutting without additional investment has been the strategy of the Marion County school district for seven years and it has failed. Those who advocate for more cuts or believe there is some better distribution of existing resources are simply perpetuating a failed status quo that has done great harm to our children and our community. Below, find our analysis of the reasons why candidates were both for and against the school funding referendum. To get a more in depth view of the candidates and their positions on a range of issues, we recommend reading the candidates responses to the Marion Chamber and Economic Partnerships (CEP) questionnaire on the Internet. We also recommend reading some of the transcriptions of previous candidate forums generously provided by Save Ocalas Schools on Facebook. According to the group, Bobby James (District 3) and A A ngie Boynton (District 4) both support the referendum, but did not elaborate in their responses to the CEP. In forums, both have noted the need to restore art and music. James in particular has noted the need to begin funding vocational programs. Jamie Bevan (District 4) supports the referendum as well, the group says, with caveats that she expects to see the funds used as written in the language. Since Bevan is running for School Board, we expect that if elected she would work diligently to oversee the school districts budget and make responsible appointments to the Independent Citizens Financial Oversight Committee. To her credit, Bevan pledged at the July Friday Forum that she would make sure funds are invested as intended. Bevan also noted the Legislatures habit to divert funding away from public education as a reason for supporting the referendum. Diane Schrier (District 4) noted her support for the referendum stems from the failure of the state Legislature to adequately fund public education, and its ongoing efforts to divert funds away from the public education system to charter schools and private school vouchers. She also noted the district has already cut their budget significantly Jim Touchton (District 3) stated the need to restore basic programs for students and praised the accountability components of the referendum, noting: The inclusion of an independent citizens oversight committee and an automatic sunset provision make this referendum a respectable effort to correct the States underfunding of its Public Education system. However, Touchton provided a caveat that he would end the referendum early if funds could be found elsewhere in the budget to fund programs like art and music. Marions United says, We believe this is an unlikely possibility considering both the level of cuts made over the previous seven years and the consistent record of underfunding by the Florida Legislature. Both C C hase Basinger (District 4) and E E d Wilson (District 3) cite their opposition to a tax increase as the main reason for opposing the referendum. Basinger describes a credibility problem with the district noting This [referendum] has been tried many times within the last several years. I do not support threatening taxpayers with teacher layoffs, then, when the district doesnt get its way after an election, go back and hire the teachers that were released. According to the group, This is incorrect on a couple of points. First, the School Board has only attempted a referendum to fund operations once in the previous 10 years, a near last minute attempt in 2012 which failed narrowly. Second, Marion County Public Schools laid off 261 first year teachers and paraprofessionals on May 31, 2013, months after the failure of the school funding referendum on August 14, 2012, not before. The 160 first year teaching positions were restored later in the summer of 2013, but only due to the high number of both retirements and resignations that occurred after the May 31st announcement. The other 101 layoffs of teacher aides were permanent and remain to this day. These initial layoffs were not threats, but harsh fiscal realities after the school district failed to secure additional revenue through the 2012 referendum. We believe its imperative Marion County not make the same mistake twice in 2014. Jane Moerlie (District 3) described her opposition as follows: I do not support it unless the current leadership discovers ways to cut cost in administration. We cannot ask for more from the taxpayers until we become a good steward of their money. According to Marions United, Many administrative positions are required by the state and despite conventional wisdom, very little savings can be gained from administrative cuts. The task of restoring art, music, library, and PE, plus hiring enough teachers to truly meet class size standards along with lost paraprofessional positions (teacher aides) will cost roughly $12-16 million. There is simply no way that administrative cost cutting could cover the amount needed. It should be noted that none of the candidates opposing Marion Countys school funding referendum have yet provided a specific plan for what areas and positionsFriday, August 8, 2014 ~ 3 OCALA RESIDENT PUBLISHES INSPIRATIONAL MEMOIR Finding Myself by Kathy Kerwin A candid chronicle of struggles and stumbles, lifesaving lessons and amazing accomplishments.

they prefer to cut along with estimated savings. None of the candidates opposing the referendum have provided a specific proposal for how they plan to restore art, music, libraries, PE, and lost teaching and paraprofessional positions eliminated in 2013 or previous years. Ron Crawford (District 5) as a current member of the School Board voted to put the school funding referendum on the November ballot. However, Crawford remains undecided on the overall issue noting Yes, the school system could use the money but the finally [sic] ballot language does not ensure that the items listed as part of the ballot language well be the items that the money is used on. I proposed ballot language that would have ensured the money could only be used for the items that the voters thought that they were voting for. My proposal was not approved by a majority of the Board. Marions United says, On the first point, Mr. Crawford is a member of the School Board. We presume that should he win another term that he will work diligently to oversee the school districts budget and make responsible appointments to the Independent Citizens Financial Oversight Committee which oversees the referendums funds. On the second point, Mr. Crawfords original proposal was only a half mill and could only be used in years that didnt involve a salary raise for teachers. This made little practical sense, which is why the School Board rejected it. Kelly King (District 5) stated in her written response to the CEP that she supports the referendum as long as funds are allocated appropriately. However, King has potentially changed her position, reportedly saying in a forum hosted by the Marion County NAACP, I was originally for it but then when I really examined it more carefully, I dont think we need it. If the District can pay over $100,000 for an attorney when we need teachers I cannot support it. Marions United says, Well again point out that the task of restoring art, music, library, and PE, plus hiring enough teachers to truly meet class size standards along with lost paraprofessional positions (teacher aides) will cost roughly $12-16 million. If Kings remarks at the NAACP forum are accurate, she owes the public a specific plan for how she plans to restore these programs, and not simplistic anecdotes. We asked about Kings position from her campaign, but we received no reply to our email request for clarification. At the risk of misstating Kings position, we have her listed as undecided. 4~ Friday, August 8, 2014 000ISU9 Lic. #MM31909 Massage Therapy Manual Lymphatic Drainage at Jasmine Plaza By appointment only 352-620-4298 Lic.

THE LONG MILE HOME By Scott Helman and Jenna Russell The Long Mile Home is a triumph of narrative journalism by two Boston Globe reporters. Although the facts are well known, the authors map out the chronology of events so dramatically that this non-fiction book reads like a novel. On a picture-perfect racing day in April 2013 Chechen immigrant brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev abandoned two backpacks containing pressure cookers filled with nails, ball bearings, and explosives on Boylston Street just a few hundred feet from the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three died and scores were injured as runners, hearing the commotion, assumed it was an early celebration and continued to rush toward the finish line until stopped by law enforcement. What followed was hellish chaos. The first explosion rippled the surface of Jason Geremias drink as he stood near the bar inside the Forum restaurant. Conversations around him stopped in midsentence. Smiles faded, replaced by looks of confusion. The second blast blew friends standing outside into the bar as people pulled them to the back of the room. Everyone else was stampeding. Altogether 16 peopleeight women, seven men, and one eight-year-old girl lost limbs from the bombing. All were standing close to the explosions. Despite these appalling injuries the authors note, If there had to be a terrorist attack somewhere in the U.S. the finish line on Boylston Street with six of the top hospitals within a mile or two was about the best place it could happen. There was another positive factor. Boylston Street was a dense area of businesses with cameras outside their stores. One of these cameras captured the murderous brothers dropping their backpacks and then disappearing into the crowd. In their fine reportage Helman and Russell relate the human side of the tragedy through the eyes of a doctor, a police officer, the marathons race director, and the families of the victims. But the greatest tension in the book centers on the days when greater Boston was gripped by fear of the brothers at large. After Tamerlan is killed in a shootout, public transportation and all businesses are shut down as police hunt for the surviving younger brother. During this terrifying time the populace is told to shelter in place while house by house is searched. The Long Mile Home demonstrates that we need professionals like the Globe reporters to accurately tell the historymaking stories of our time. Highly recommended.

Friday, August 8, 2014 ~ 7 We have just had our tax-free back-to-school sales and school starts in another few weeks. For many of us its too late to take a vacation. My vacation has been on Pun Alley where I let my mind wander to come up with some vacating stories.TypicalJoe couldnt decide whether to go to Salt Lake City or Denver for vacation, so he called the airlines to get prices. Airfare to Denver is $300, the cheery agent replied. And what about Salt Lake City? We have a really great rate to Salt Lake $99, she said. But there is a stopover. Where? In Denver.RealityA man exploring the ancient Pyramids of Egypt while on vacation stumbled across a secret room after sneaking away from the tour group. He found a dusty lamp and picked it up. When he wiped the dust off the lamp, a genie appeared in a puff of smoke. For freeing me from my prison, I will grant you a wish; what will it be, sire? The man thought for a moment and then said, I want a spectacular job, a job that no man has ever succeeded at. Allah Ka Zam! said the genie. Youre a housewife.Job demandsJennifer had applied for a job and when she returned home, her mother asked how the interview went. Pretty good, I think, replied Jennifer, but if I go to work there I wont get a vacation until Im married. Her mother, of course, had never heard of such a thing. Is that what they told you? No, replied Jennifer, but right on the application it said vacation time may not be taken until youve had your First Anniversary.Short tripsThe only book that really tells you where to go on your vacation is your checkbook. With all the staff on vacation, the cemetery was able to manage with a skeleton crew. But it was quite an undertaking. You can always tell the man who has everything. Its in the SUV when the family starts the vacation trip. On their vacations people drive thousands of miles to have their pictures taken in front of their cars. Does your vacation start soon? Yes, my wife is leaving tomorrow. On Daves last vacation there was a slight problem. They didnt find any hotel towels in his valise, but they did find a chambermaid in his grip. When the barber took his vacation he combed the beach. Men, if you go on a cruise ship during summer vacation to meet some women, theres a fifty percent chance you will fall in love and become very she sick. Hawaii vacationers are here today, gone to Maui. I shot this tiger in India. It was a case of me or the tiger. Well, the tiger certainly makes a better rug. Music for the heartA lady aboard a cruise ship was not impressed by the jazz trio in one of the shipboard restaurants. When her waiter came around, she asked, Will they play anything I ask? Of course! replied the waiter. Then tell them to go play chess.FishyTwo rednecks went on a fishing trip. They rented all the equipment the reels, the rods, the wading suits, the rowboat, and even a cabin in the woods. They spend a fortune. The first day they went fishing, but didnt catch anything. The same thing happened on the second day, and on the third day. Finally, on the last day of their vacation, one of the men caught a fish. As they were driving home one guy turned to the other and said, Do you realize that this one lousy fish we caught cost us eighteen hundred bucks? The other guy said, Wow! Then its a good thing we didnt catch any more!For the birdsA bird breeder, who dealt with only species that are normally wild, not parrots, canaries, or parakeets, had a difficult life, getting up early to feed all his charges, never taking a vacation, working hard, and yet he enjoyed life. When the local newspaper interviewed him for a feature story, they asked him if he was sorry about the life hed chosen for himself. His reply? I have no egrets.

PAGE 8 8~ Friday, August 8, 2014 BY JANET TRAUTWEIN Special to the CitizenPresident Obama marked the recent conclusion of open enrollment in the federal healthcare laws insurance exchanges with a celebration at the White House. The administration exceeded its goal of signing 7 million Americans up for insurance coverage. Many small business owners are in a less festive mood. Theyre dealing with burdensome new rules, taxes, and premium hikes. Fortunately, several measures that would offer small businesses relief from spiraling health costs are pending before Congress. For many small firms, insurance is more expensive than ever. In a recent survey, 91 percent reported that their insurance costs rose following their latest renewal. A February report from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services estimated that premiums would rise for two-thirds of workers at small businesses roughly 11 million Americans. One reason for these price increases is the federal healthcare laws annual $8-billion fee on health insurance providers. Carriers will have to pass this added expense on to employers and consequently, their workers. Premiums are expected to increase by as much as $160 per person this year. New federal community rating rules may also lead to higher premiums and create administrative headaches for small business owners. These rules do not allow insurers to charge older workers any more than three times what younger ones pay. The goal is to protect older workers and ensure that they have affordable coverage. But in the small group market, community rating could have the opposite effect. Prior to passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), insurers often charged small employers a uniform composite rate, which took the overall age breakdown of the employees into account and did not reveal the details to employers or staff. In effect, the premium for each employee was the same, regardless of age. But the ACAs community rating rules essentially bar insurers from issuing composite rates. Every employees premium corresponds to his or her age. Imagine explaining to a 60-year old employee that her monthly premium will be $900 while her younger colleagues will be $325. And if the employer offers a set amount toward coverage for each employee or a percentage of the premium that older worker would have to pay more for coverage than she did pre-ACA. Employers could end up facing charges of age discrimination. Fortunately, a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the House of Representatives has offered a measure that would moderate the rate shocks that small businesses may face. The bill would allow states to determine the appropriate ratio between premiums for the young and those for the old. In states that failed to act, a five-to-one ratio would be imposed, meaning that no person could be charged more than five times what any other person was charged. This ratio more closely reflects the actual cost of care for the young and the old. Such a reform could also allow insurers to re-institute composite rates for small businesses, and thus achieve one of the primary goals of community rating. Another group of lawmakers would like to get rid of the annual fee on health insurance providers. According to consultancy Oliver Wyman, such a move would ward off a 2.3 percent hike in premiums this year. That translates to savings of nearly $500 per family per year. By making insurance more affordable, these measures would encourage more small firms to retain coverage for their workers. And that saves taxpayers money by keeping small business workers out of the exchanges, where they could qualify for subsidized coverage. The total savings to the federal government? More than a billion dollars over the next decade. But those savings can only come about if Congress acts and soon. A recent survey found that 15 percent of small-business owners are considering dropping coverage altogether in order to cut costs. Lawmakers cant risk that outcome. With open enrollment now behind us, the Obama Administration needs to turn its attention to the small business market. Small firms need relief from skyrocketing health costs. Lawmakers must find a way to provide it to them.Janet Trautwein is CEO of the National Association of Health Underwriters. Over the years, youth baseball has been one of my hobbies and passions. Im excited because this week begins the Little League Regionals on the ESPN family of networks (not as many on TV this year, some on the computer). I have been a coach, manager, umpire, league official and district director in such programs as Little League, Babe Ruth League (now the Cal Ripken division) and Dixie Youth League. About three weeks ago, a gentleman stepped to the microphone at the County Commission meeting and identified himself as an official with a Little League in Silver Springs Shores. What he asked for surprised me. He asked for relief from the fees his league has to pay the county to use the fields. I was shocked. In all my years of being involved with youth baseball, I have never heard of a city or county demanding money from a league for using county fields. In fact, in many places, government officials bend over backward to help the leagues, because they know that if the volunteers who run these leagues dry up, the county government would be descended upon by parents demanding that the government provide recreation baseball to take the place of the inoperative youth leagues. The countless amount of money that the volunteers save the government by running these programs that keep hundreds of children off the streets is a boon to local officials, including those in Ocala and Marion County. But evidently commissioners dont realize this. Let me put it another way: The county is charging taxpayers to play on fields that the taxpayers already own. A lot of people dont realize the amount of work that goes into running a youth program. From planning meetings right after the first of the year, to registration, to tryouts, to drafting teams, to setting up schedules, to obtaining sponsors both for teams and for advertising signs around the outfield, to attending district meetings to plan tournaments, to choosing all-stars, to traveling to tournaments, its almost a year-round job and most volunteers love it. To ask them, however, to raise extra money to pay the county for the privilege of running a program that takes the burden off the county is a good way to alienate these volunteers. I hope that the county will take a look at this in the budget, if not this year then next. If not, then parents should get organized and have hundreds of youth baseball players show up for a series of county meetings to let the commissioners know how they feel. The term play ball is one of the sweetest sounds you will ever hear, especially when a bunch of 5 to 12-year-olds shout it. Maybe if they start yelling it at county meetings, it will make a bigger impression.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and the South Marion Citizen.

If youve been to any of the recent political forums concerning the School Board or judicial elections, youve undoubtedly noticed that one thing that is prevalent in other races was absent you werent told which candidates were Republicans or Democrats. Thats because of a state law that makes those races non-partisan. However, theres an instance in Volusia County which could lead to changes in that law. The Republican Party of Volusia sent out recommendations for all races in the county, listing just Republicans. They listed the names of a pair of judicial candidates, in apparent violation of the law thats on the books. However, according to published reports, the State Attorneys Office has refused to prosecute, citing a judges ruling about 35 years ago in South Florida. In that case, it was Democrats who challenged the law, and a federal judge ruled that it violated First Amendment rights to force the local party to stop publicizing its support of certain candidates. However, that portion is part of a broader law and the entire law is still on the books. One part that is still followed is that judicial candidates are not allowed to promote themselves as either Republicans or Democrats. In this day of social media and Internet background checks, that entire law seems obsolete. In fact, we would like to see the Florida Legislature take up the issue and remove the non-partisan status of both judicial and School Board elections, and make them elections just like all others that are countywide or district-wide. In the case of School Board members, the law has never made any sense. In judicial circles, we can applaud efforts decades ago to keep partisan politics out of the election of judges, but that hardly seems practical now. Even on the federal level, when confirmation hearings for federal judges, Appeals Court judges and Supreme Court judges take place, its easy to discern to which party each candidate belongs. Despite the constant bickering, our country has survived quite nicely for many, many years with the twoparty system. We cant see any reason why it shouldnt apply to all elections. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Put 2-party system into all elections Volunteer program forced to pay? Small businesses deserve more from Obamacare READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor The Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) has urged Floridians to rethink their support of the proposed amendment to legalize marijuana in Florida, calling the effort a potentially dangerous threat to families and communities. Regardless of any state laws, recreational marijuana use is still illegal on the federal level because of its high potential for abuse and the fact that there is no currently accepted national standard for use as a medical treatment, said Chief Frank Kitzerow, President of the FPCA. Its important to understand that expanding the use of marijuana for medical purposes is not a safer way to use the drug. Studies show that marijuana use and criminal involvement other than drug use are highly related. Medical marijuana is often sold in storefront dispensaries; in other states, the storefront dispensaries have become magnets for crime and increased law enforcement costs. According to statistics provided by the citys Department of Safety, Denver recorded 7,000 reported State police chiefs against marijuana vote PLEASESEECHIEFS, PAGE9


Friday, August 8, 2014 ~ 9 CHIEFSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 crimes within 1,000 feet of dispensaries in the first six months of both 2012 and 2013. Statistics have shown that marijuana also plays a significant role in car accidents. Between 2006 and 2010, the Colorado Department of Highway Safety reported that at least 183 people were killed by drivers who tested positive for cannabis, after Colorado legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes. There are more than 120 ER visits related to marijuana use for every 100,000 people in the United States. The expansion of marijuana use has also been shown to have a negative impact on surrounding business communities. A study found employees who tested positive for marijuana have 55 percent more industrial accidents and 85 percent more injuries than non-users, and 78 percent have higher absentee rates than non-users. Drug-using employees have been shown to have up to 300 percent higher medical costs, which increase insurance rates for employers and employees. For more information on the potential impacts of the proposed amendment, please visit The FPCA is the fourth largest state police chiefs association in the nation and is composed of more than 750 of the states top law enforcement executives. FPCA serves municipal police departments, airport police, college and university police, private business and security firms, as well as federal, state and county law enforcement agencies. The FPCA has members representing every region of the state. COMMENTARY Yes, I know. How many times have we been told We are a nation of immigrants? The welcome, after all, is right there on the Statue of Liberty: Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me. And in fact, millions of people have sought refuge and thrived here, including my parents. But the tradition gets obliterated in all the angry debate about those who try to breach our borders ... even the children we see today, trying to escape the tempest in their own countries. Arguably, the welcome for huddled masses yearning to breathe free has its limits practical ones and, frankly, bigoted ones. To some degree, the grand promise has been lip service for a long time. Once the colonists and succeeding generations had settled in and expanded, they started being downright hostile to those who decided to come along later. Italians, Irish, Germans and Asians all have had to run the gantlet of vicious prejudice once they arrived. Boatloads of Jews were simply turned away by anti-Semitism as they tried to flee the horrors of the Holocaust. Now its many Muslims who experience religious hatred. Back in the day, Quakers were ostracized. Of course, Africans were welcomed ... as they were unloaded from their slave ships. All in all, its easy to understand the vicious reaction to those who pursue a life today in the United States. Its nothing new. And its not unique. We are finding it harder and harder to live up to our stated ideals. Equal Justice Under Law, the words chiseled over the entrance of the Supreme Court, are mocked in courthouses throughout the country. We take it as a given that those who can afford it get a much easier ride through our justice system than those of lesser means. Even as the laws are created, the wealthy special interests hire expensive lobbyists to make sure theyre not bound by the same rules as those who have no paid-for voice. And its getting worse. The middle class, which all politicians blithely describe as the backbone of our society, is withering away. The unions that protected worker rights have been steamrolled by executives who benefit financially if their employees just scrape by. Every day, economic inequality widens. Even everyones precious right to vote is undermined, not just by the obstacles put up by dilatory rules, but by Some U.S. principles are on shaky ground Bob Franken Columnist PLEASESEEFRANKEN, PAGE10 000IWP1 352-401-1966 EXPIRES 8/31/14 CLEANING SPECIAL ANY CLEANING SERVICE OVER $100 3 ROOMS & 1 HALLWAY $ 79 95* EXPIRES 8/31/14 *Must meet minimum charge.

BY DR. MARVIN J. FOLKERTSMA Special to the CitizenOn Aug. 3, 1914, British Foreign Secretary Edward Grey gave a speech before Parliament that proved to be one of those junctures by which people afterward date events, according to Barbara Tuchman in her magisterial The Guns of August. The dour Secretary appeared pale, haggard, and worn, as he dutifully explained British interests, British honor, and British obligations, all of which conspired to produce a commitment to defend Belgium against the militarism of the continents mightiest power: Imperial Germany. The issue involved more than the troublesome neutrality of that inconveniently situated little country. A few hours after Greys speech, Germany declared war on France, with the full expectation that victory would be achieved before the leaves have fallen from the trees, as Kaiser Wilhelm II declared. The day ended with Grey remarking that The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetimewords that proved prescient. The gloomy German Chief of Staff Helmuth von Moltke conjured a more farsighted scenario when he exclaimed to a colleague that their country was embarking on the struggle that will decide the course of history for the next hundred years. And so it has been, though not in a fashion that the best minds before the first battles of the war could have foretold or even vaguely glimpsed. Indeed, only a handful of observers thought that the conflict would last much longer than three or four months, a war that could be planned and executed. And the future horrors that the war unleashed totally eluded them. Consider Tuchmans description of the first German attacks on a Belgian fortress around Liege: Spending lives like bullets the Germans continued their assaults, such that the fallen were heaped on top of each other in an awful barricade of dead and wounded, stated a Belgian officer. But would you believe it? This veritable wall of dead and dying enabled those wonderful Germans to creep closer, and actually to charge up the glacis. In fact, the battle for Liege represents the sort of maniacal determination that history reserves to those whose sanity and humanity had been conquered by the madness of ideological commitment, in this case to a military plan whose strictures could hardly be compromised by the mere expenditure of lives like bullets. All of which became worse beyond the most macabre imagination. The Battle of Verdun, considered the longest battle of attrition in history, claimed one million lives on both sides, after which the front lines had hardly changed at all. The Battle of the Somme, whose film depiction so traumatized the sensibilities of British viewers, also consumed one million lives, Englishmen and Germans. The Battle of Passchendaele, which, like the offensive on the Somme was supposed to be a breakthrough advance, generated over a half million casualties on both sides, with only a few miles of worthless territory gained. In fact, as historian Niall Ferguson points out in The Pity of War, the slaughter that lasted from August 1914 to November 1918 witnessed 6,046 deaths per day in a complex of trenches that (according to Paul Fussell) covered 25,000 miles on both sidesenough to circle the earth. From all this Ferguson concludes, Quite apart from the killing, maiming and mourning, the war literally and metaphorically blew up the achievements of a century of economic advance. And for what? Verdun, the Somme, Passchendaele, Ypres, the Marne, Arras, and scores of other battlegrounds ravaged by the most hideous implements of modern warfaremachine guns, flamethrowers, poisonous gas, trench mortars, artillery, aircraft, submarinesall haunt European memory like the destructive exploits of a delinquent youth who had experimented with self-immolation for purposes long forgotten. Indeed, a Pandoras Box of 20th century evils burst from this murderous foray, including the victories of Nazism and Bolshevism and their attendant horrorsa short list of the consequences of Europes dabbling with how best to kill itself. the shameless distortions in the barrage of campaign ads, sponsored by those who want to buy the elections. Equal opportunity? Another platitude. So many of the nations public-education systems are in shambles. Those who could exercise their clout to force improvements instead pull their children out and place them in expensive private schools, where they are walled off from the riffraff. This country was designed to be a haven for those seeking freedom and, if not prosperity, at least a safe existence. Perhaps that was a false promise too much to deliver. Maybe at some point well just admit that we cant pull it off and symbolically say to the Founding Fathers, Nice try.10~ Friday, August 8, 2014 8810 SW HIGHWAY 200, KINGSLAND PLAZA352-237-4447We Are Here To Help You!

BY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenIm going to pass on trips to Israel for a few weeks. Walking around the Gaza strip looking for some good Arabic food would be crazy right now. Thousands of Americans each year travel to see the sights of Old Jerusalem and walk in the places where Jesus once walked from the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth and any place that a tour bus can travel. I have only been to Israel once and loved every minute of the trip. The places I saw where beautiful and inspirational. The Temple Mount is a place in Jerusalem that is thought to be one of and probably the holiest shrine in the city. The golden dome temple stands out from all the other buildings when looking at it from the Mount of Olives, which is thought to be the place where Jesus ascended into heaven. At the time of our visit the Temple Mount was under the control of the Palestinians. We were allowed access to visit but I didnt enjoy the visit for a second. The guards did not at all look welcoming and all carried machine guns. I was glad when we stepped off that property. The land of Israel is so small, about the size of New Jersey. Gaza is only 139 square miles and crowded with over 1.7 million people making it the seventh most densely populated area in the world. The area is too small for such hatred and violence. With all that is going on in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and now Israel, how long will it take for the entire Middle East to blow up? Who will be the first to go crazy and set off a nuclear weapon? That will be crazy and the chain reaction will be earth altering. While all the war seems to be so far away, television once again brings everything very close and up front. Yet, we can still go to the ice cream shop or order pizza while flipping through the television channels or posting pictures on Facebook. Never mind that we are in a war right here in our country. You could take a little trip southwest and see the thousands of people storming the borders of our country. Southern California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas are in serious trouble as thousands of people from Mexico and Central America are coming here every day.

The lamps are lit again and Europe is at peace; but it is the peace of senescence. The toxic passions of nationalism have succumbed to the moral neutrality of multiculturalism and a deathly low birthrate, which will accomplish in the long term what the Great War nearly did in the short term: civilizational suicide. Once bristling with weapons and purpose, Europe survives as a patina of modernism covering a museum of forgotten furies, all protected by the United States. The question is whether a positive role, again in terms of a civilizing mission based on the best of what Europe has to offer, will ever again emerge from a continent that has so influenced the globe over the past half millennium. Is greatness still possible? This is one of the important questions the world will face one hundred years after The Guns of August.Dr. Marvin J. Folkertsma is a professor of political science and fellow for American studies with The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College.

before its the Taliban with four or five thousand thugs targeting a border city and fighting to take over that city? Currently, I dont think they would get very far. Or, how far would they get and how many people could they kill? Americas southern borders seem far away for most Americans. Everything seems to be someone elses problem being played out on television. We turn off the television and breeze out the door to whatever we want. However, our southern border is essentially our backyard. If America does not secure our borders fast the America we grew up in will not be recognizable in ten years or much less. We need to spend the trillion dollars or whatever it takes to better secure the Southwest part of the United States. Along the way we need our military patrolling the wall. I would rather build bridges than walls. But in this age there is an evil mindset that is determined to eliminate Americas freedom. We have to build walls, seriously protect them and keep our freedom.Glenn Mollette is an American columnist and author12~ Friday, August 8, 2014 000IXWZ Mon.

It has become rather normal for me to be in trouble with her. No matter how hard I try not to be, it always is to be. This week was a high point for me getting into trouble. I never relish getting into a pickle with her, but sometimes it is unavoidable. All week long, I had been murmuring and complaining about how hot it was. Ive never seen such hot weather, I grumbled. I dont know how long I can take this hot weather. You would think that someone my age would have learned long ago that some things should not be vocalized. This is America, and we all have the right to speak our mind although much of the time we should not speak our mind aloud; at least, not to the point that someone, especially someone living under the same roof, can hear you. I have found that the thing that enhances romance is the sounds of silence. I guess it was getting a little wearisome with all my complaining, but after all, the weather was really hot. Then, she looked at me and said, If I hear you complain about the weather one more time, Im... Im... Im... The look on her face indicated that she was not at a loss for words; she was just trying to control herself and save herself from early widowhood. I truly respect people who have the ability to control themselves, especially the people who live under our roof. I almost said something, but for some reason I had a flash of temporary sanity. I said nothing, but smiled. I am not boasting here, but I am really good at saying nothing. Even when talking, my wife tells me I am saying nothing. Saying nothing has gotten me out of many a jam, particularly with my wife. There are times when husbands and wives should sit down and have a rather invigorating conversation. Then there are times when the husband should shut up. I never know which time is which. It was then that my wife laid out the facts for me to evaluate. How she can remember everything is simply beyond me. However, how do I know she is actually remembering things as they were and not making them up? It seems, according to her impeccable recollection, that a few months ago I was complaining about how cold it was and anxious for the hot weather to come. You were just as grumpy about how cold it was as you are now about how hot it is. Then she put her hands on her hip and looked at me with that look, and said, I dont mind you complaining about one or the other but I really do mind you complaining about everything. Youre going to have to make up your mind whether you hate the cold or the heat, and then stick to it. That put a new light on the situation, and a new burden on me. Now, according to her latest admonition, I need to choose the heat or the cold. I am tempted, although I know better, to complain about this. I do not think it is fair that I have to choose one or the other. I think I should be able to hate both the cold and the heat. However, here is the problem. If I choose to complain about the heat, then what do I do in the wintertime when it gets cold? Faced with a real dilemma I took it to my good wife and asked, Can I hate the heat in the summer and hate the cold in the winter, if I alternate it every other year? To me this sounded like a very reasonable request. After all, I was accommodating her request and getting in my share of complaining. If you would spend as much time thinking of positive things to say as you do complaining it would be absolutely wonderful. But how can you think of something positive about the heat when you are sweltering? And, how can you think about something positive about the cold when your bones are shivering to death? Mistakenly I told my wife my dilemma. I think I have you figured out, she said. Youre positively negative about everything. There is only one thing worse than having your wife figure you out. There must be, but I cannot think of any thing right now. I will not say my wife is right, only that she is not wrong. I must say I have And the heat goes on ... and on ... and on Out to Pastor Rev.

a tendency to complain about everything. Some people can see the silver lining in every cloud whereas I see a cloud over every silver lining. I guess it is a persons perspective. Thinking along this line, I remembered a verse in the Bible. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things (Philippians 4:8). Some people (like me) see a glass as half empty while others see it as halffull. There are those few souls (like my wife) who are thankful that there is any water in the glass of all.Rev. James L.

A crew of seven teenage scouts and two adult leaders went on a life-changing summer trek through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico. Philmont covers 214 square miles of vast wilderness with trails that climb from 6,500 feet to as high as 12,441 feet. During their trek Boy Scout Troop 707 hiked more than 60 miles in 12 days with each boy carrying about 35 to 40 pounds of gear. The group of Scouts and their advisers carried everything they needed on their backs hiking from camp to camp. They participated in programs such as shooting, tomahawk throwing, and horseback riding, rock face climbing, and exploring the backcountry. Along the trek, Scouts endured tough challenges including backpacking in bear country, steep climbs, and varying climates and temperatures. The crew made what amounts to a scouting pilgrimage with their trip to Philmont. Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts of Americas premier high adventure camp and the largest youth camp in the world serving nearly one million participants since 1938. A shorter outing totaling eight days and 1,200 miles was made to Camp Daniel Boone in Canton, North Carolina, with 13 Scouts and three leaders. The Scouts attended merit badge classes, swam, hiked and fished, and enjoyed attending the drama Unto these hills. Adult leaders took more than 20 hours of training. Fundraising of various sorts financed these enriching journeys: car washes, popcorn sales, camp card sales, benefit dinners, parent contributions. Mens Fellowship of Ocala West United Methodist Church and the entire congregation congratulate the young men and advisers who participated in this activity. Ocala West United Methodist Church is proud to sponsor the Boy and Girl Scout troops meeting at our west side facilities. The Troop only had slightly more than one year to raise enough funds to cover both of these trips. Each night the troop was on the road both to and from each location they camped out. Contribution for this article from Trent Salmon and family and other Troop members. 16~ Friday, August 8, 2014 000IWS6 000IW9H VISIT: Deadline August 15, 2014 2014 Two groups of Ocala West Boy Scouts take trips to New Mexico, North Carolina Shown in the New Mexico trip are, front, from left, Robert Langen, Reece Salmon, Dylan Taylor, Philmont Guide John, Ryan Engelgau, Austin Taylor, DJ Williams.

This gives us a chance to socialize and chat with everyone who has an interest in our activities and projects. We cordially invite you to join us.Volunteer of the monthIf you are a Cherrywood resident you undoubtedly get the Chirp Magazine each month. I am amazed at how many people dont bother to open it up. You are missing a lot of great information if you arent reading it. I would call your attention to the Support Our Soldiers section of that magazine and to the Letters from Soldiers. For an example, let me quote SFC Terrell S. Larry in thanks to the packages sent by the Support Our Soldiers volunteers, And honestly we are forever grateful for the love, care, and support you have shown us. The volunteers I speak of are Norellen and Ed Pickell. They have been tireless in their efforts to make sure our troops in combat zones know that they are cared about and thought about. Donations from our residents of fruit roil ups; crunchy peanut butter; cool ranch Doritos; licorice; flavored creamers; unsalted mixed nuts; jerky and more are packaged by Norellen and Ed. These two people then take the packages to the post office and your Veterans Club covers the cost of postage. The result is that our troops have a taste of home and know that they arent forgotten. Without Norellen and Ed, this worthy project would not be possible. I might add that they have overcome some very serious personal hardships to carry out their mission. We compliment them; we express our deepest gratitude to them and as Veterans we salute them. We thank you Norellen and Ed for being who you are; doing what you do; and for being our volunteers of the month. Be sure to express your gratitude to Norellen and Ed when you see them.Geris farewellScores of people turned out on Friday, Aug. 1 to wish Geri a fond farewell. Between 1 and 3 p.m. more than 80 residents stopped by the clubhouse to wish Geri well on her new career and to thank her for all shes done for Cherrywood.

Or it could be an energy-draining exercise in futility. Be certain your goals are worth your efforts. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Divine Bovine might be seeing red at having your crisisresolution efforts overlooked. But others know the truth, and they can be expected to step forward when the time comes. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You should be well on your way to finally making that important decision. Having the support of loved ones will help when crunch time comes. Keep a positive attitude.

Best to fess up now before a small mistake turns into a big misunderstanding. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Trying to please someone with a less-thanglowing opinion of something you value could be a waste of time. If you like it, stay with it.

But be honest with yourself: Is it what you really want, or one you feel pressured into making?

Well evidently yesterday Aug. 7, was designated for lighthouses and if you like to collect them as my husband does you probably were pleased to find that out. The other day I stopped in the Ceramic Room (Orchid Club) for a visit with the group working on ceramics. I did not see a lighthouse there but it was a fascinating visit as they were all anxious to show me their work. I met their Monday teacher, Linda Redding, Wednesday and Thursday it is Billie Vetrano. Linda said any resident who wants to get involved with ceramics is welcome. You might want to stop by, visit and see if it is something you would like to learn how to do a great craft. Sign on the wall Oak Run Ceramic Class AKA Therapy Group. Please note that all activities in Oak Run are for residents and their overnight guests. The ORHA board has asked me to stress this in all published articles. Things have really slowed down and that is OK. Everyone needs to take some time off and as they say smell the roses. Jan and Ron, our Donut Drop-In Chairmen, dont slow down though and as usual will be serving us our donuts at the Donut Drop-In Saturday, 8 to 9:30 a.m. See you there; LauraDo you remember?Tune in to Len Teitlers Do you remember? featuring the second annual Sept. 10, 2000 Synchronized swim show starring the Oak Run Water Lilies and the YMCA Dancing Dolphins.

Oak Run LibrarySaturday, Aug. 9, from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Orchid Club auditorium will be the monthly Friends of the Oak Run Library book sale. Hardcover books will be $1 and paperback books will be 25 cents. Come to the book sale and stock up on reading materials for the rest of your summer vacation. You can also enjoy a donut while you are looking at the books. Did you get a chance to look at the Florida books which are located underneath the new books behind the checkout desk? Most of us come from another part of the country and it is interesting to read about the history and adopted state. There is also a book about the beautiful horse statues around Ocala. We also have a section called Oldies but Goodies on top of the black bookcase in the center of the library. These are books such as To Kill A Mockingbird and Gone With the Wind. Books are rotated on a regular basis so please stop and take a look at the books located in this section.Perform Arts Company of Oak Run Everyone is getting busy with preparations for the Performing Arts Company of Oak Runs raucous fall production of Hello Dolly! Set and scene builders are braving the heat in our un-air conditioned storage space. You can catch them by the early light of morning before temperatures soar. Strange that this is a requirement of these dedicated folks, but theyre diligent in getting a start as dawn breaks. Rehearsals began this week in our beautiful Palm Grove facility (air-conditioned as it is). Singing, dancing and blocking the scenes are all part of the first rehearsals. The cast and chorus enjoy having the support of script inhand, but longs for memorization and the chance to have both hands free. Show dates of Oct. 10, 11 and 12 are not far off. We already have ticket sales under way and have some upcoming planned sales of which to inform. Tomorrow, Aug. 9, you can have your donut, eat it and buy tickets too at the Donut Drop-In at the Orchid Club from 8 to 9:30 a.m. You can have pancakes, eat them too and buy tickets at the breakfast in the Orchid club on Saturday Aug. 23 from 8 to 11 a.m. Then a Enjoy ceramics at Oak Run Oak Run Laura Smith PLEASESEEOAK RUN PAGE24 Italian Restaurant & Pizza


shape and taste to be shared by others. A beautiful cake was on hand that wished Geri good luck and of course there was coffee and lemonade provided. Cards and notes were placed into a box and everyone signed a poster for Geri to take with her. She will be training our new office administrator for the next couple of weeks so if you missed saying good-bye, there is still time. It was a wonderful send off for a person who has been an important part of our community for over seven years.Flu ShotsDont forget to get your flu shots this year. Check with your health care professional and make sure you are okay to get the shots and then come to the clubhouse on Sept. 5 between 1 and 3 and get inoculated against this disease. Seniors are especially vulnerable to flu so dont wait. Make an appointment today or just show up during those hours. Medical professionals will make sure you are safe to face this coming flu season. Election DayThere will be no Line Dancing classes or aerobics on Tues. Aug. 26. That is Election Day here at Cherrywood and the clubhouse will be closed to all activities except voting. Editor of the Citizen Newspaper Jim Clark mentioned in his article a few weeks ago how important these local elections are. According to Mr. Clark, the people we choose for local offices have more impact on our daily lives that even our state and national leaders. I couldnt agree more. It is up to each of us to learn about the candidates and the issues and then exercise that all important right to vote. Talk to your candidates; discuss the issues with your neighbors and become as well informed as you can. You should always vote as though your life and livelihood depended upon it; because it does.From a readerA reader wrote that after many years here at Cherrywood she discovered a TV channel that she thought others might enjoy. I spoke with her and agreed to share that info with you, my readers. Channel 465 is an oldies channel. It shows such great programs as Gilligans Island; Love Boat; Twilight Zone; Dragnet; and many others. It plays the kind of TV that we grew up with. If you are dissatisfied with the current shows and movies available you may wish to try this channel for a change of pace. Thank you for your recommendation Cherrywood resident and reader.From your reporterThose of you who know me are aware that I am an avid Trivia buff. My mind is filled with totally useless information. The only time it comes in handy is when we are playing Trivia at our clubhouse on the third Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. With this in mind, I thought it might be a fun to challenge my readers to a quick Trivia quiz. See how many of these questions about basic government you can answer. It will be a great test of your knowledge so here goes: Who is the Governor of Florida? Who is the State Treasurer? Who is your State Representative in the Florida house? Name the two Senators from the State of Florida. Who is your County Commissioner? Who is your local School Board Representative? Name two proposals up for vote in the November election. Now I am sure most of you got all of these correct; maybe you missed one or two. For those few who might have missed a majority of these questions; it may be time to brush up on this information. In a few short weeks we will have a primary election to select the leaders who will be running in the November polling. Knowing who the candidates are; what the issues are that are facing our community and State; and knowing where our potential leaders stand on those issues is vitally important to all of us. Information has never been more readily available as it is today in this digital age. The computer and library are excellent resources to say nothing of the many other places to obtain knowledge about the candidates. The League of Women Voters; Boards of Elections and the individuals running are just a few of the places to go to inform youre self. Often people speak about the younger generation being ignorant about history and politics. Truth be told, it is not only the younger generation; it is a vast majority of Americans. You need only watch the late shows with their man in the street interviews to see this. There is nothing wrong with being ignorant; that merely indicates you lack knowledge about something. A little learning and the ignorance is cured; corrected; it disappears. So the challenge is to educate ourselves and to vote accordingly. Franklin Roosevelt once said, Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way they could do that is by not voting. If there is something worse than not knowing what or whom you are voting for; perhaps that is the person who just does show up. Unfortunately complacency is very prevalent in our society today. Many people feel that their vote cant or wont make a difference. That is not true; you can make a difference. By not being informed; by not going to the polls; by not caring, you abuse one of the greatest rights we have. In addition, I suggest that you abuse the memory of those who died to give us that right. In the beginning of this article I gave you a series of questions. I wont give you the answers because that is up to you. Please be mindful that elections are anything but trivial; they are fundamental. Ill see you at the polls.22~ Friday, August 8, 2014 000IYIZ Pioneer Repair Services, Inc.

Ifound an interesting article in Brain World magazine. It touched on a subject most of us are familiar with. Why do we too often forget what we are doing when we walk into another room? The conclusion reached is that passing through a doorway can trigger an even boundary in our mind. Our memory stores away the thoughts we had in the prior room and prepares a blank slate for the new location. Unfortunately, knowing the reason helps little when it happens to us.Chair YogaChair Yoga that takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9 oclock is a great class to enroll in. Barb Anns class is different from other yoga classes taught in OTOW. She uses meditation and breathing along with the yoga poses. Its like receiving two lessons in one. Actually three as the poses are stretching exercises as well.Books that Shaped AmericaOn July 29 at 1 p.m., at LOH for lectures 7, 8, and 9 of Books that Shaped America was shown. At the first lecture the presenter discussed one of the best selling books of the 19th century. Its Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. The book is about 4 sisters and the take away is belief and work. The next half hour lecture was a discussion of Mark Twain and his book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. This is the first book that uses English dialect of the region discussed. Samuel Clemens was also a successful lecturer. The Virginian was written by Owen Wister. This novel discusses duty over convenience. It was the first true western written. It captures the spirit of the old west.Master the PossibilitiesFourteen programs are scheduled to start next week at Master the Possibilities Center for Lifelong Learning. A dozen still have some openings. On Tuesday Aug. 12, 2-3 p.m. in the Circle Square Cultural Center join Kevin Shelly, President and CEO of the Chamber and Economic Partnership for a dynamic and insightful presentation on the state of Marion Countys economy. On Friday, Aug. 15, the new fall catalog will be released. Pick one up at the Center, local libraries or online at There are hundreds of programs to register for during September through December. Enroll early, they fill up quickly. All offerings are open to the public! PhilomenaOn July 31, at LOH, another movie from the Academy Awards Series was shown. Just about every seat was taken to see it. Judi Dench starred. Its the true and heartbreaking story of a mother who was forced to give up her son. The movie is about how she tries to find him after 50 years. So many at OTOW wanted to see it that it will be shown again Aug. 11 at 1 p.m. In spite of the subject matter, there was a bit of comedy and earthy elements to it.The Books that Shaped AmericaOn Aug. 1, The Books that Shaped America DVD Lecture Series was shown at LOH from 1 to 2:30. Lectures 10, 11, and 12 were discussed. The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton was an immediate best seller. Her birth name was Edith Newbold Jones and her family was rich enough to be considered one of the 400. They were the families considered near the top of the economic ladder. Her books, including this one, showed the restraints placed on womens freedom. The Jungle by Upton Sinclair discussed the horrors in the work place and at home. This book was first published in installments in the socialist newspaper Sinclair wrote for. The book came out in 1906. It was dedicated to the working men of America. Its about working class poverty and the hopelessness among many workers. Sinclair exposed the health violations in the meat packing industry. Main Street by Sinclair Lewis as the last book discussed. It was a very popular book about small town life. The book was published in 1920 and it was a major best seller. Lewis shows that small town life is not the happy place most people thought it was. It shows the conformity and dullness of the inhabitants Main Street attacks the conventional ideas about marriage and the bigotry that exists.

Friday, August 8, 2014 ~ 25 FAMILY FEATURES When it comes to mealtime, a well-stocked pantry can be the difference between culinary success and a dinner dud. Too often we contemplate what to make for dinner, only to realize that we dont have the right ingredients on hand or the food in the fridge has spoiled. But with a pantry full of canned foods, a delicious and easy, homemade meal is just minutes away. Its no secret that canned foods are convenient, but did you know that cans are also one of the best ways to get food from the farm to your familys table? Canned fruits and vegetables are picked and packed when theyre at their peak of ripeness and nutrition, sealing in their freshness and flavor, so you can feel confident about serving them anytime.Less waste, more mealsAnd if you find that youre often throwing away fresh food, youre not alone. Accord ing to a recent study, most Americans throw away spoiled fresh fruits and vegetables two times a week on average, wasting a staggering 15 to 20 percent of fresh produce each year. By keeping your pantry stocked with essential canned ingredients, you know the food you purchase wont go to waste, saving you money and helping reduce your impact on the environment. With your favorite canned food staples, youll be on your way to creating delicious and nutritious meals like Hearty Chickpea Vegetable Soup, Neopolitan Tuna Fettuccine and Falafel Burgers. Thanks to your well-stocked pantry or Cantry mealtime success is achievable anytime.

when voting. She is one of three candidates running against incumbent judge Sandy Kautz to preside over family law court in the 5th Judicial Circuit. The position will be based in Citrus County. Circuit family court judges are elected on a nonpartisan basis. The judges preside over dependency, divorce, juvenile delinquency and mental health cases. During a recent visit with the Chronicle editorial board, Dymond Lyn touted her experience before and during her legal career, which began 17 years ago. Her experience as an attorney includes probate, government law (she served as city attorney for Inverness and represented the county property appraiser), family law, real property and other forms of criminal litigation. Before her legal career, Dymond Lyn, 47, was in the U.S. Air Force, where she worked in maintenance in a supervisory role. While in the military, she got her real estate license selling houses during the day and working maintenance at night. That taught me a lot about time management, she said. Dymond Lyn graduated from Troy State University with an accounting degree and received her law degree from the University of Florida. In 1997, she joined the Brannen, Stillwell and Perrin law firm in Inverness, where she said she handled most of the family law cases. In March 2001, she opened her own practice and focused mostly on government and real estate law. This is her third bid for a judgeship in the circuit. She ran against Kautz in 2008 and lost. She unsuccessfully ran against Judge Robert W. Hodges in 2010. Dymond Lyn said one of the things thats important to her is how litigants are treated in the courtroom. All parties to court proceedings should be treated with dignity and respect. I believe there is currently a lack of dignity and respect shown in court proceedings, she said. 28~ Friday, August 8, 2014 DAPAD_2INADVERTISINGTO ADVERTISECall489-2731 SCREEN REPAIRS BOBS SCREENING SERVICE Complete Rescreening of We Re-vinyl Soft Windows Garage Door Screens Porch Enclosures Patio Doors Window Screens Screen Doors 000IZ7F 352-586-8459 Serving Senior Citizens Over 30 Years Free Estimates 000IX2W HANDYMAN Weekend Warrior Let Me Do All Your Chores Home Maintenance/ Repair Lawn & Yard Pressure Washing Painting, Etc.

One of the promises I made when I got on the bench was that I will handle my dockets swiftly, efficiently and fairly. And, I think I have done that, Kautz said. Kautz, 59, won her current position in 2008 following the retirement of Judge Barbara Gurrola. Kautz beat one of her current challengers, Denise Dymond Lyn, in that election. Also in that election, Kautz ran an inexpensive campaign, opting not to buy signs or solicit contributions. Kautz said her biggest motivation in her job is the welfare of the children who appear before here. She said her office is decorated with drawings and mementos given to her by various children she has interacted with. She is particularly alarmed by what appears to be the rampant use of prescription medications affecting the emotional and mental health of children. I have never lost a child to these drugs since I have been on the bench, Kautz said. Prior to her first run for a judgeship in the circuit in 2006, which she narrowly lost, Kautz was an assistant state attorney from Marion County for 11 years. Kautz is a criminal justice graduate of the University of Florida and has a law degree from Stetson University Law School. She said the three most important issues in this race are: Experience, qualifications and time to invest outside of the office. KAUTZCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 judgeship. All will be on the Aug. 26 ballot. Hatcher, 53, whose private practice is located in Bushnell, said the range of her experience in her 27-year legal career even includes working on a tuberculosis case. During an interview with the Citrus County Chronicle editorial board, Hatcher said she worked on civil cases; worked on behalf of children with the Department of Children and Families; and worked infamous criminal cases and environmental cases. She said its her time to be a judge. I believe that certainly the circuit deserves the best representation it can have, she said. My experience and background, particularly in marriage and family law, dependency and juvenile law, make me uniquely situated for the position. Circuit family court judges are elected on a nonpartisan basis to sixyear terms. The judges preside over dependency, divorce, juvenile and mental health cases. Hatcher, who lives in Wildwood, earned her bachelors degree from the University of Tampa in 1984 and got her law degree from Stetson University Law School in 1987. This is Hatchers first run for office. Hatcher shied away from questions about issues such as if she favored punishment over rehabilitation in drug cases, citing judicial canons. However, she said her decisions on cases as a judge will depend on the evidence before her. I think it is important to know the law and apply it to the best of your abilities, she said. Every issue before a circuit judge is important. I can help solve any issues before me with my ability to provide a well-informed focus on issues before me, and my ability to HATCHERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Read the classifiedsTuesday, Aug. 12Free concert at HawthorneSaturday, Aug. 16Tribute Quartet appearsMonday, Aug. 18Legion post to meet Unarmed Security Officer courseWednesday, Aug. 20Womans Club membership driveSaturday, Aug. 23Hard Rock Casino tripMonday, Aug. 25Retired nurses to meetMore on Page 29

South Marion Citizen 000ITWC Judith Is Here 854-6531 Walk-Ins Welcome 6160 SW Hwy. 200, Ocala, Suite 99 in the Jasmine Plaza FOURTEEN YEARS EXPERIENCE Come See Judith Pierro taking a stab at it again this time to unseat another incumbent and to defeat two other candidates for family court judge in the 5th Circuit Judicial Circuit, which includes Marion, Sumter, Lake, Hernando and Citrus counties. Samargya was born in DeLand and reared in Pasco County. He has a bachelors degree in management from University of Central Florida and a law degree from Oklahoma City Universitys School of Law. An Army veteran, he worked for his familys medical supply business in Homosassa for four years before deciding to study law. He has resided and practiced law in Citrus County for many years and now resides in Marion County. Samargya said the diversity of his experience places him above the others in the race. My whole legal career prepares me for the job. I have been a lawyer for 20 years and I have experience on both sides. I have trial experience, which helps you understand courtroom procedures, Samargya recently told the Chronicle editorial board. Samargya, 47, answered questions about a range of issues including whether he favors rehabilitation over punishment. He said in cases such as personal drug use people not involved in dealing or manufacturing; and, if it is not a habitual thing he would favor rehabilitation through some of the drug diversion programs. Samargya said he also has been involved with Teen Court since 2008. In 2012, Samargya ran for public defender in the circuit against Michael Graves, but lost. He said prisoners are routinely transported from the jail in Lecanto to the courthouse in Inverness, and money could be saved by using the courtroom at the jail more often. He described himself as a straight shooter who would bring balance and fairness to the bench.
