BRIEFS Peace rally set for this Saturday in downtown OcalaPeace and antiwar groups throughout the country are calling for protests against renewed military intervention in Iraq. Locally activists will gather from 10 a.m. to noon this Saturday on the north side of Silver Springs Boulevard across from the farmers market adjacent to the Town Square to demand that the United States not intervene in Iraq.Deputies arrest woman riding in pickup truck for drugs, warrantsA woman riding in a pickup truck on State Road 200 was arrested on active warrants and on drug charges after the driver was stopped for not wearing a seat belt. According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Anna Fillingane was arrested on the warrants, but a search revealed a silver spoon with a white powder substance on it, six needles, one containing blood, and three promethazine pills. Also located was a small marijuana cigarette. Fillinigane was charged with four drug counts, with bond at $500 for each misdemeanor, but also with two felony violation of probation counts, with no bond on each. Fillingane, 27, has an arrest record going back nearly seven years, for larceny, petit theft and drugs, and violation of probation warrants. In another case, the Sheriffs Office is investigating a break-in at a Bahia Oaks home on Southwest 61st Place. Various electronic items were chosen while the homeowner was away on an overnight vacation. He returned and found his door damaged.

BY JIM CLARK EditorThe political forum season kicked into high gear last week with School Board candidates appearing before the State Road 200 Coalition. Several of the candidates for the School Board appeared. The non-partisan School Board races are on the primary ballot on Aug. 26. If no candidate in a certain race gets 50 percent plus one vote, the top two in that race will face a runoff in the November general election. Two of the races feature crowded fields. In District 3, Bobby James is the incumbent, and he is being challenged by Ed Wilson, James Hoyne, Jane Moerlie and Jim Touchton. Hoyne did not attend the meeting. The list could change this week as qualifying ends at noon today (Friday). As of Wednesday morning, only James and Wilson had qualified. In District 4, Angie Boynton is the incumbent. She faces challenges from Diane Lynn Schrier, Jamie L. Bevan and Michael Chase Basinger. As of Wednesday morning, all but Basinger had qualified. District 5, as of this writing, has just two participants, incumbent Ron Crawford and challenger Kelly King. Both have qualified. Neither was at the meeting. School hopefuls speak at Coalition PLEASESEESCHOOLS, PAGE3 Marion County Fire Rescue (MCFR) and On Top of the World (OTOW) fitness professionals have partnered to present residents with the Big Balance Theory program, which aims to combat the growing number of fall-related trauma emergencies. Balance Theory program not only provides residents who are at risk of incurring a fall-related injury with information, but shows them how to improve their strength, balance and confidence through exercises that can be done at home. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than onethird of people aged 65 and older fall each year, racking up more than $2 billion in medical costs. The trend is mirrored locally. During the 2011-2012 fiscal year, fall-related incidents accounted for 52 percent of the 11,093 trauma injury calls to which MCFR responded. The following year (the 2012-2013 fiscal year) fall-related incidents accounted for 47 percent (3,974) of the trauma injury calls to which MCFR responded. MCFR and OTOW hope to change this trend. On June 24 the agencies will kick off the countywide Big Balance Theory fall-prevention campaign at the Marion Oaks Community Center (Annex Building, 280 Marion Oaks Lane, Ocala). On Top of the World Fitness Director Cammy Dennis created Big Balance Theory program six years ago to impact the lives Training to help lessen chances of falling PLEASESEEFALLING, PAGE3 Forest and West Port High Schools are overall winners of this years Fred E.

James was the first speaker, and emphasized what the board has accomplished. He said that the county has had to deal with unfunded mandates, and commented, You cant control how much money we will have. He said that in the past he has enabled folks to come together. Wilson, active in the Tea Party, said his work with that organization is one of the things that prepared him for leadership. He said he loves the kids, and we must prepare them to be successful. He said the schools do not have a revenue problem, they have a spending problem. He said that he wants more choice for parents, and that the schools should pay the best teachers well. He added he wants to bring back morals by getting God back in the schools. Moerlie came to the U.S. from Suriname, and said she became a citizen by choice. I feel a great indebtedness to this country. She said that recent FCAT scores speak for themselves, and added, My goal is to provide each individual child with an opportunity. Touchton hit on several issues, but as a teacher perhaps made the best point when he said, My textbooks are older than my kids. He said that teachers should be held accountable. He also wants parents to take part in the process. There are parents who dont think the school system wants them involved. He echoed a previous theme when he said, Part of the problem is money. Its not necessarily that there isnt enough, its just not being used wisely. As the discussion moved to District 4, incumbent Boynton led off. She got out in front of some issues she had regarding her actions at a meeting, and said, It was a terrifying time for me. She said she decided to run again because of the needs of students and teachers. She said during a visit to Tallahassee that she found Gov. Rick Scott did not know of the unfunded mandates. She noted that the budget comes from the superintendent, and that she would work with the superintendent and staff. She said she also wants corporal punishment eliminated. Schrier took the floor and said, Our technology has to equal whats happening in the world. She said she was born in Minnesota and grew up on Long Island. There were times when we had to do with very little money. She wants to work on the dropout rate, getting it to decrease. She also noted that there are a lot of very good things in our community. Bevan said she has been teaching for 21 years. She said the schools havent got enough money, and commented on the lack of social workers and psychologists. These are the things we need. She also said there are some awesome teachers doing fantastic things in the school system. But she pointed out that there are teachers with 28 students and no aides. Were going to change this district upside down, she said. Basinger, who is known by his middle name of Chase, is a music director at Central Baptist Church, and said because of his job hes required to send his children to Ocala Christian Academy. Public schools cry out of parents to be involved, he said. He added that teachers are crying out for money. He said he has a background in business. The next Coalition meeting will be the second Monday in July, the 13th. Crawford and King are being invited, and also featured will be County Commission candidates and judicial candidates. Meetings are held at TimberRidge, Building 5000, Suite 5001.

Hes a celebrated painter, an enthusiastic fly-fisherman, and a lover of poetry and nature. But give him the proper provocation and a rage, a red blindness, drives him to violence. Early in the novel we learn that hes already spent prison time for beating a man in a bar who made inappropriate remarks about Stegners teenage daughter. This man survived. Dellwood Siminoe was not as lucky. When Jim came upon him beating an intractable horse, the situation ignited his red blindness. Dellwood was later found dead in a Colorado stream. Though Dellwood was a rotten dude and a known poacher the town wouldnt mourn, Grant Siminoe is a vengeful pursuer of justice for his kid brother. The spine-chilling danger hanging over Stegner is set against stunning landscapes of Colorado and New Mexico. And the more violent Jim becomes the more intricate his paintings become, objects both delicate and manic. Along the way readers enter the head of a brilliant artist. Slowly, the reasons why this successful mans life is spiraling out of control evolve. High on the list is his daughters death in a drug deal gone bad. Shortly before she died shed reached out to him and hed pulled away. His wife leaves him; he develops a drinking problem. Ungovernable rage impels him to murder two men. Then, curiously, he starts to feel a kinship with his dead victims. He remembers hearing that in our dreams we are all the characters. But the thought that he was somehow like those men makes him gasp. He asks himself, When you kill do you also conjoin somehow? In some horrible communion you will never shake? Is that why soldiers come home and scream at night and kill themselves? Because they have become their targets? Ultimately, there is redemption and a turning to prayer: Forgive me. Forgive me everything. I want to love all things. I dont know how. I dont know how. Please help me. This is a haunting novel.

Did you know that Marion County has more horses and ponies than any other county in the nation, according to the United States Department of Agriculture census? With more than 900 farms, every breed from A to Z is represented here. Because of the numerous horse farms in 2001 a project was started to paint and display horses around Ocala. The horses were auctioned off and are permanently displayed around town. The book Horse Fever is a beautiful and vibrant depiction of what a community can achieve by working through the arts.

Donating a pint of your blood to help those hurt and sick and hoping for new blood to replace that lost in illness or accident or bringing in new life to the world.

To help you, and others, the Life South Bloodmobile will be stationed in the front parking lot of On Top Of the Worlds Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Monday, July 7, to assist you in helping those in need of your pint of blood. Regulars know the easy-to-follow procedures: Drop in, bring an ID card, answer a few questions, take a seat, roll up a sleeve, smile at the friendly, specially trained technician, enjoy a beverage as your donation is delivered, get up and leave with a sweet treat, a special prize, and a really great feeling of being a hero! Thats right your pint donation can save three others. Some people who will be having surgery in the future donate to stockpile the blood they will receive during and/or after surgery. Just tell the tech who takes your blood.) Join us in the Life South Bloodmobile on July 7. Celebrate the feeling of a new independence!

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest. Sri Chinmoy Becoming non-judgmental is the best gift we can give friends, family, and especially ourselves. We need to accept people for whom and what they are. Instead of trying to change them, maybe we should think first about changing ourselves. Its not an easy thing to do but worth reducing this way of thinking. We judge ourselves unfairly as well. If were not good to ourselves, we certainly cant expect others to be. Judging is an easy thing to do, a very human thing. We all do it, many times unintentionally. In letting go of judgment, you shed discrimination and prejudice. Be easy on yourself; enjoy yourself.Master the PossibilitiesMaster the Possibilities finishes a very successful June next week.

Our adult Concert Chorus of about 30 men and women who sing in four-part harmony is looking for a director who has the experience to develop and guide the members toward a December Christmas concert. We hope to find someone who loves to sing, as much as this group does, and is enthusiastic about planning for the concert and meeting each Tuesday morning with the members, beginning in September. So we hope everyone will consider their many musical contacts in the neighborhood, at church or in any other organized group to see if there is someone with this talent for directing a chorus of singers and let them know that we are interested. Anyone qualified to direct our chorus should contact Linda Hein, Search Committee Chair, at 861-9880 or Joan Stenson, President, at 873-0304.

Ground breaking for the field took place on Tuesday, June 10 with many residents and softball players for the occasion. Bob Foisey from the Sales Office was on hand for the ground breaking ceremony. The new field will have many wonderful features. There will be covered 30-foot dugouts with overhead fans, an electronic scoreboard, two sets of bleachers for fans. It will house a concession stand with grill, popcorn machine and nacho machine. Now, I would have loved that equipment when I worked at the concession stand at Ursinus College where my son played baseball during his college days. The field with be a regulation 300 feet to the outfield fences and it will have irrigated Bermuda grass outfield with a clay infield and warning track. It will also have golf cart parking adjacent to the field. The field will be located near the outdoor Pavilion. The softball team is excited about the field and the residents will be able to watch games. Here is to September and the opening of the field. George Kaufman said the first game may be an interesting one as there is rumor that the sales team wants to play the softball team. Another beautiful amenity becomes a reality in the next few months at the Stone Creek Community. I would like to thank Kim Krystopa, Lifestyle Director, for taking pictures for me. Lets play ball!

Anews service report about the recent Republican Leadership Conference said it was a New experience for the GOP: No heir apparent. Historically Republicans select a nominee for president who is considered next in line to receive the nod. That fixation worked when selecting Ronald Reagan and two members of the Bush family, but not for John McCain and Bob Dole. Struggling in 2008 and 2012, Republicans staged suicide discussions for herds of would-be candidates. The party succeeded in highlighting every flaw which contestants wanted to pin on each other. The voters listened to the shows and voted accordingly. At their recent conference GOP delegates discussed a group of names which might include someone who could lead their party back into the White House in 2016 Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, and Dr. Ben Carson. Some of the potential leaders have said or hinted that they are interested in the nomination. We wonder whether the potential nominees have asked themselves if they want to risk being remembered as the candidate who lost to the first female president. There is talk that Hillary Clinton hasnt made up her mind to run for president in 2016. We believe otherwise. In college she was active in school government. Hillary hinted an interest in becoming the first female president in 1969, when she was the first student commencement speaker at Wellesley College. She said vaguely that the challenge for the graduates would be to practice politics as the art of making possible what appears to be impossible. Its reasonable to surmise that she has been running subtly for the oval office ever since. Over the past 45 years student Hillary Rodham has trained herself into a complete politician, all the while studying up-close how to manage a state, a house of Congress, a cabinet appointment, and a nation. It is understandable that more than eighty percent of female voters want Hillary to run for president. She has been supportive of womens needs and rights around the world. We believe her only serious consideration now is whether to change her mind and drop out. Republicans might want to keep her decision in their prayers. Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 20, 2014 Jim Flynn Columnist Some of my grandchildren love playing soccer. Two of the boys plan to go to camp, or something like that, to help them play better. I havent gotten to see them play in over a year, and I understand theyve improved tremendously from the little guys running around the field to good players who understand the game. Im always glad to see young people get involved in team sports. It teaches a lot of things about teamwork, socialization, accepting blame, modestly accepting praise, etc. For myself, I coached a lot of youth baseball and basketball over the years, and I probably got as much out of it as the kids did. However, I never coached soccer. I simply didnt know enough about the intricacies of the game. Oh, I knew the offside rule, etc., but not the skills needed to play. Hockey is another story. Growing up in the New York area, I was a Rangers fan. I had a friend who was in the PR department of the Rangers, and he used to get me and my girlfriend (later my wife) front row mezzanine seats in the old Madison Square Garden on 50th Street and Broadway (thats why some people still call the Rangers the Broadway Blues). I knew all the rules, knew the players, knew the opponents bad guys, etc. Hockey really moved fast, and even though you might only have two or three goals a game, the speed kept you on the edge of your seat. We just finished with the Stanley Cup Playoffs last week, with the Los Angeles Kings defeating the Rangers in a series of thrilling overtime games. We are now blessed with something in soccer called the World Cup, in which various nations send teams to one country, this year its Brazil, to complete in eight pools with the top two finishers in each pool going into the championship round. Games are widely spread out over days and over the country. At the risk of offending all you soccer fans out there, I find that soccer is nothing but slow hockey. Its the same basic principle, with scoring in the opponents net, low-scoring games, and may be one rush that has a chance of producing a goal every two minutes or so, instead of every 15 seconds or so in hockey. It is a sport with all sorts of chances for corruption. There is a referee who calls all the penalties, and keeps the clock. There is a clock for everyone to see, but its not official. In this day of modern technology, I have to wonder why not. They have something called stoppage time. Its added on to each half to make up for time used for injuries, etc. Why in heavens name they just cant wave their arms to stop the visible clock, then start it again when play resumes, making the clock official, Ill never know. Frankly, theres too much power invested in these referees, and to me that opens the door to possible shenanigans. One bad call and everyone thinks the ref has been bought, which Im sure isnt the case but which is possible. So next season, Ill work my way to Palatka to watch my grandsons play, and Ill cheer for them and congratulate them on playing a good game. Its very important to them and I wouldnt want to spoil that. Just dont show them this column. Pretty soon theyre going to be 10 and 9 years old, and I wouldnt want to spoil their image of me. I just think I ought to buy them each a pair of ice skates. But then again, its a long trip to find the nearest rink.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Such was the case of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who was upset in the Virginia Republican primary last week by an economics professor at Randolph Macon named David Brat. As late as last Tuesday morning, notable pundits such as those at the Washington Post were publishing articles about how Cantor would be the next Speaker of the House. As it turned out, Cantor wont even be in the House when the next session starts in January 2015. Now the national press is making another mistake, completely ignoring another professor, this time one who teaches history. His name is Jack Trammel, and he also works at Randolph Macon. Just a little while ago, Trammel, a Democrat, decided to run for Congress against Eric Cantor. But he wont be facing Cantor, hell be facing a colleague, Brat. Talk about being thrust into the limelight. Virginia is an open primary state, meaning that Democrats could have voted in the Republican primary. It means that Democrats could have been voting against Cantor, hoping for an easy road to Congress for Trammel. Cantors problem, however, may have been rooted in the fact that people didnt feel he spent enough time in his district. He wasnt even there on primary day. Between his primary two years ago and this years stunning defeat, Cantor lost more than 8,000 votes. That means that either his backers were reading the polls and didnt turn out, or his support was eroding and he didnt know it. Theres a message there for incumbents across the land: Dont get too sure about re-election. Spend more time in your districts, talking to constituents, finding out what they are thinking. We had an example around here two years ago, when Ted Yoho ousted Cliff Stearns in the Republican primary. So people shouldnt be shocked when a supposedly safe seat is lost by either party. But the emphasis remains on voting. Nothing happens until the ballots are counted. So when these elections roll around, starting on Aug. 26, make plans to get out and vote. If you dont and your candidate loses, you have no one to blame but yourself. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Reminder to all: Early deadlines for July 4 issue LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Silent no longerI have been silent for nearly two years. Events of the past couple of weeks make that no longer possible. First we learned that veterans are dying for lack of service. Obama says info did not reach the higher ranks of government. Of course, in 2008 and every year since, he said he would fix the problems of the VA. Next came the release of five terrorists for one alleged deserter. Then it came to light that thousands of children are crossing the border because Obama told them they could stay. Following a speech on Tuesday where it was said the world has never been safer, the most terrifying group ever assembled (and led by a former GITMO detainee) invaded Iraq. And just for good measure Lois Learners hard drive was melted and thousands of incriminating e-mails were said to have been lost. My Liberal friends say at least we are not at war What? 100 years ago Wilson said the same thing. 75 years ago Roosevelt said so too. 65 years ago we did not go to war in Korea under Truman and 55 years ago we failed to support Kennedy/Johnson in Vietnam. In the past century American lack of commitment led to in order loss of some 10 million lives; loss of some 60 million lives; were still in Korea and we lost in Vietnam. (Note: All of the above were Democrats.) Just like in the schoolyard, whenever you show weakness the bullies take advantage. Just on a bigger stage. As of this writing, the most PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE1 The U.S. Open Golf Championship for men just finished on June 15 and the U.S. Womens Open Championship is now under way, ending on June 22. What makes this notable is that both are on the same golf course in North Carolina. With both men and women thinking about golf, Pun Alley just has to have some appropriate stories.Real golf coupleA husband and wife were on the 9th green when suddenly she collapsed from a heart attack. Help me dear, she groaned to her husband. The husband called 911 on his cell phone, talked for a few minutes, picked up his putter, and lined up his putt. His wife raised her head off the green and stared at him. Im dying here and youre putting? Dont worry dear, said the husband calmly, they found a cardiologist on the second hole and hes coming to help you. Well, how long will it take for him to get here? she asked feebly. No time at all, said her husband. Everybodys already agreed to let him play through.Careful aimThe retiree stood over his tee shot for what seemed an eternity, looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, and figuring the wind direction and speed. Generally, he was driving his partner nuts. Finally his exasperated partner said, What is taking so long? Hit the ball! The retiree answered, My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot. His partner pondered this for a moment, and then replied, Forget it man, you dont have a chance of hitting her from here!Count on itA gushy reporter asked a famous golfer, You are spectacular and your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. Whats your secret? The golfer replied, The holes are numbered.Short puttsThe only time a golfer tells the truth is when he calls another golfer a liar. A golf ball is a golf ball, no matter how you putt it. Old Golfers never die; they just lose their drive. He was teed off with his bad start, driving the ball almost beyond the green, but he was able to putt it behind him. Your golf addiction is driving a wedge between us. The golfer guessed that his ball landed 20 feet off the fairway. Of course, that was just a rough estimate. If you golf on election day, cast an absent-tee ballot. Golf is a game where the ball lies poorly and the golfers lie well. Two longtime golf buddies were standing on a tee box overlooking a river, getting ready to hit their tee shots. One golfer pointed down the river, turned to the other golfer and said, Look at those idiots fishing in the rain!Say What?The young honeymooners were out on the golf course, and the groom was explaining the basics of the sport to his bride. Tee the ball, he instructed. Theres no need for baby talk, she huffed.Foregone conclusionWhile he was strolling along the promenade behind the country club, Ralph was struck on the head with a golf ball. He staggered back, dazed, and leaned against the wall; his vision was just clearing as he heard a man yelling to him from the course, Im sorry! Sorry? Ralph moaned as the man ran over. Mister, Im going to sue you for at least $5 million. Look, I know youre upset, but I did say fore. What? I said fore. Ralph rubbed his head. Fine. Ill take it. Ball choiceAfter leaving every putt one roll short of the cup all day long, the frustrated golfer finally asked his playing partners for some advice. The first thing you have to do is stop using that Latin American ball, one of them said. A Latin American ball? he asked. Whats a Latin American ball? Dont you know? said his friend. A Latin American ball is a ball that always needs another revolution. Bards advice Did you know that Shakespeare was a golfer? one golfer asked his buddy. No, said his buddy, I had no clue Shakespeare was a golfer. Well is happens to be true, he said. Im surprised you didnt know that. Arent you familiar with one of his most famous lines? I guess Im not, said his friend. What line is that? You know the one, he said. Havent you ever heard, Putting is such sweet sorrow?

a made this past weekend was whether to use a nine iron or a wedge Time to elect a [resident and rid ourselves of his lowness. Bill Riola Oak RunDream TeamAs if we didnt have enough with President Obamas scandals and follies we now have this prisoner of war fiasco. A Dream Team selected would you believe by the Taliban and released from Gitmo for one American captive and he a deserter or worse who likely caused the death of at least six servicemen looking for him. Mind you, these five Taliban terrorists were the most important and dangerous prisoners there. Some swap. Yet! Susan Rice who should know better after those Benghazi talking points says that Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction. She must be from another planet. To make things more bizarre this sergeant got two promotions while in Taliban hands with another one coming up while still being eligible for all that back pay. If all this wasnt true, I would think I was dreaming. Yes! Only in America and especially with this Obama administration. Bob Cronin Oak Run. Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A change of season reinvigorates the Lamb, helping to overcome the effects of a recent slower-paced period. This is a good time to restate your feelings for that certain someone. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might not like using your authority to correct a workplace situation, but thats what being placed in charge is all about. Besides, you have people ready to lend support if need be. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your creativity continues to run high and helps guide you to make fine choices in the work youre doing. Keep the weekend free for the special people in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dont be surprised if you experience a sudden spurt of energy strong enough to pull you out of that recent period of indecision and put you back in charge of your own goals. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time for Leos and Leonas to set new goals regarding health, educational choices and possible career moves. The plans you make now could be a blueprint for your future. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might have much to offer a potential employer, but it can all be overwhelmed by too many details. Let the facts about you speak for themselves without any embellishments. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a good week to balance your responsibilities to your workaday world with your obligations to the people in your private life. Expect news that could lead to a change in plans. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A changing attitude on the part of a once determined adversary could cause changes down the line. Be prepared to take advantage of an unexpected new opportunity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Youd be truly wise to be skeptical about an offer that doesnt answer all your questions. Even a colleagues testimonial doesnt replace facts that arent there. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Avoid spending on unnecessary purchases this week in order to keep a money reserve against a possible upcoming (but, fortunately, temporary) shortfall. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) More information is what you should demand regarding that workplace situation that recently came to light. Dont be surprised at who might turn up as one of your supporters. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might still be in a treading water mode, but by midweek, a shift in your aspect favors taking a more active role in pushing for changes you feel are necessary. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Ihave noticed lately that I have been getting in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, at least more than normal. I am at the stage of life where this kind of thing needs to be brought to a bare minimum. At the end of each month my wife will quiz me as to if I have paid all of the bills. In my rhetorical answer is always, I sure did, my lady. Then I will bow before her. For some reason she does not get the humor of that. My job is to pay the bills and her job is to make sure the end of the month I have paid the bills. This has been our relationship for longer than I can recall. Every once in a while I get in a little tickle mode and dramatically declare that I forgot to pay the bills for the month. Oh my, what will we do? The first time I did that, she threw a smile in my direction. I dramatically would catch it and put it in my pocket. I notice she has not been throwing smiles at me lately. Honestly, who can blame her? It was toward the middle of the month when the cable went dead. We had no telephone, TV or Internet service. The first thing my wife said was, You did pay the Comcast bill, didnt you? I put on my regular show and assured her that I did. We had to call the Comcast Company, but as it stood, we had no telephone service. Fortunately, my wife had her cell phone and called the Comcast Company to see what the problem was, maybe the service had gone out in our neighborhood. One thing about my wife getting on the telephone for such a thing as finding out why we had no service is that she does not have patience. She hates being put on hold. I hate her being put on hold because she usually takes out her frustration on me. Now, what do I have to do with that? After all, I did pay the bill. In fact, I went to the checkbook and showed her the number of the check and the amount of the check. There, I said most adamantly, I paid the bill. After about 45 minutes of waiting rather impatiently, my wife finally connected with the service representative who was able to help her. I did not hear the conversation, but I knew it must have been quite serious because I could see in her face that she was getting angrier by the minute. We paid our bill on time, she protested in a very stern manner. My husband has the check number to prove that he wrote the check out. I was sitting in my easy chair going through my briefcase enjoying the drama that was unfolding before me. I love it when somebody is in trouble and that somebody is not me. I must confess it does not happen that often, but when it does happen, I take full advantage of it. I was gloating just a little bit and feeling pretty good about myself. I had my briefcase and was sorting out some papers and getting ready for the next day when I ran across a bunch of envelopes. I looked at them, then looked over at my wife, and then looked back at the pile of envelopes and all of the color drained from my face. I could not believe what I found in my briefcase. There in a neat bundle where all of the bills I had written out for the previous month. The checks had been written, signed and placed in the proper envelope with a postage stamp on it. All of the bills for the month were there staring at me with such vicious eyes as I have never seen before. What will I do now? I knew I had to face the music and it was not a song I enjoyed. I picked up the envelope with the Comcast bill address on the front, took it over to my wife as she was on the phone to the Comcast representatives, laid it on her lap and then walked away. I know my husband paid the bill beSwallowing pride or eating crow are both bitter pills to swallow Out to Pastor Rev.

The August meeting will be our annual pot luck dinner and our September outing will be a picnic. For questions about the club please contact our President, Roger Januchowski at 352-291-1004.Performing Arts CompanyThe Performing Arts Company of Oak Run boasts the second month of record attendance at its June meeting. One of Oak Runs favorite clubs continues to gain popularity as membership and attendance grows. At the June meeting of PACOR housekeeping items as well as important developments for the fall production were discussed. Of paramount importance is the securing of a synthesizer player. So many musicals, including our fall selection Hello Dolly! require that, when we purchase the rights to perform, the score be performed to live music. Commented Marlena Yaich, selection committee member. We must adhere to the terms of the contract and do not have much in the way of live music and musicians at our disposal. Our piano, though lovely, does not offer the range of instrument sounds that a synthesizer would. The person enlisted to do this for the company would make a recording for practices and play live for three performances in the fall. There is financial compensation available for the artist that would like to step forward. Equipment and recording technology will be made available. Interested parties can contact Dick Caza at 352-274-9574. The company also announced the need for a stage manager for the production. This person is in charge of coordinating the set and working with the directors on flow. This persons role will be limited at first with increasing importance as show dates approach. Scripts were handed out to company members who expressed interest in trying out for the production of Hello Dolly! These scripts will be used and rotated to other members in advance of tryouts Tuesday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Thursday, June 26, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 28, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., all at the Palm Grove Auditorium. A special need for chorus members was raised and it was reinforced that Hello Dolly! is a chorus-intensive show with many members needed. Special arrangements for the chorus will be made to limit practice time. Marci Hutto, who will serve as music director, offered her assistance to all those interested in trying out. Marci has an extensive background in music and has helped many in the group find their voice. Those that may have been just an occasionally good singer have been helped to achieve a consistent sound in notes that are right for the individual. Dick Caza, director and Bruce McDuffee, set manager, previewed a scaled model of the set that will be developed to the delight of many that know the work that goes into the production. Pieces and parts must fold into one another very tightly in order to best use the limited space, commented Bruce. Bruce was nominated for this important and labor intensive role while traveling across country earlier this spring. The board announced that formal plans for acquisition of a spotlight will be announced at the upcoming July meeting. Its important to us to reinvest the small profits we make to improving the experience for our audience. This purchase will usher in a new and improved approach to lighting the stage for our productions, comments Howard Spies, publicist for the company. There are still many, many ways to get involved with this fun club and the membership encourages all interested to join the fun.Royal Oak Ladies Niners golfOn June 12, the game was Best Balls. Team 2 (BJ Lassiter, Carol Foltynewicz, Shirley Krug and Ann Leonard) and Team 3 (Vicki Ellin, Sue Connor, Ilene Simnowitz and Lisa Juhasz) all tied for 1st Place.

Then she noticed the envelope I had placed in her lap, she turned around and stared at me a stare I have not had from her in a very long time. Just a minute, I heard her say to the other person on the phone, and then she looked at me. Then it came. Is this the bill you were supposed to send out last month? Lying at this moment would not have been productive in any fashion. She opened the envelope and there was the check dutifully written out to the Comcast Company. She was able to pay the bill over the phone and then it would be my turn to pay. David who got in a lot of trouble understood this when he wrote, I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah (Psalms 32:5). Swallowing pride or eating crow is not my idea of a delightful repast but it can be the beginning of something good.Rev. James L.

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com It all started with Adam. Actually Eve had a hand in it too but ever since the First Family had children, being a Mom or a Dad has become an important part of the greater society of humanity. Since Dads special day was last weekend, I thought it would be interesting to look at the famous dads in the Bible as well as how the Jewish tradition looks at God as a father figure. We really cant blame Adam for his messed up son, Cain who killed his brother Abel. After all, he didnt exactly have Dr. Spock to consult. But as we wend our way through the Hebrew Bible, we find that the patriarchal families were pretty dysfunctional and that they mirror the human condition even today. From sibling rivalry to rebellion against parents, its all there in the Bible for us to explore. At the end of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Lots daughters, fearful that there would be no men for them to have children with to continue the human race, get their father drunk and have intercourse with him. The two women give birth to sons who are the scions of the Moabites and Ammonites. (Gen.19 32-38) The first patriarch, Abraham, a man of deep faith and conviction, nevertheless was ready to sacrifice his beloved son as an offering to God. In modern psychological terms, poor Isaac probably suffered from post traumatic stress disorder as a result of that experience by the hands of his father. Isaac favored his more athletic son, Esau, rather than the more studious Jacob, according to Jewish legend. When blind from cataracts due to advanced age, he is tricked into giving his blessing to Jacob; the leadership of the tribe is set into the hands of Jacob. While we know that favoring one child over another is not a good parenting practice, unfortunately Jacob makes the same mistake with his sons. In the enduring story of Joseph and his brothers, Joseph is given a beautiful mantle of different colors as a gift. His jealous brothers see this as a sign of favoritism from their father Jacob and they plot their brothers fate. They are also angry because they fear that Joseph will become the head of the clan because only important leaders could wear such a fine garment. And as Jacob finally reconciles with his brother Esau over the birthright issue, so do Josephs brothers reconcile with Joseph in the end of the story. At the end of the story, Joseph forgives his brothers for selling him into slavery and we are left with a tale of sibling rivalry, which eventually leads to forgiveness. And we have the parents who dedicate their sons to Gods service. Samson becomes a Nazarite and Samuel becomes a prophet. How hard this must have been for their respective fathers (and mothers) to do. In both cases, they do this in compliance with a vow to God that if given a child, the child would be a servant of the Lord. When it comes to being a dad, King David tops them all. The humble shepherd boy soon becomes corrupt with power when anointed king. His beloved son Absalom (ironically name means father of peace) rebels against his father and the young man is killed while fleeing from his fathers army. His son Solomon eventually is named his successor, but he is the product of a wicked plot that kills his mothers husband in battle so David, who got Bathsheba pregnant, can be legally wed. In spite of all these human failings of fathers in the Bible, the father figure stands proud as a symbol of strength and compassion. The Jewish liturgy is filled with imagery as God the Father who watches over us all. While the more liberal branches have become more gender sensitive in recent years using more neutral terms, traditional Judaism still uses the father figure in much of its liturgy. This imagery is especially strong during the High Holiday days and in particular on Yom Kippur. Here in some of the most poignant prayers of the liturgical year, we find many references to God as a compassionate father to his children. Whereas mothers tend to be nurturing and warm, it is dad who metes out the punishment when children misbehave. (Wait till your father comes home!) It is this kind of thinking that seems to prevail through the High Holiday season. God is seen as a judge and a father of mercy. In the beautiful prayer, Avinu Malkeinu, our Father, our King, the two concepts of merciful father and judging king meld together to form the Jewish concept of judgment tempered with mercy, attributes we assign to God. In the end, we are commanded to honor our father and mother. Interestingly, dad comes first. It is easier to love Mom, shes a softie, but Dad, that could be another matter. Perhaps the Father of us all knows best. After all, those are his commandments.

Approximately 85 percent of tea consumed in America is iced, but the soothing and refresh ing flavors of tea can also infuse fresh and unexpected charac ter into a wide range of dishes,fromdessertstopopularfingerfoodslikechickenwings. What s more, tea has been shown to have significant health benefits. As green, black, oolong and white teas all come from the Camellia sinensis plant, tea drinkers can reap the health benefits from whichever tea they prefer The major bioactive compounds in tea, called flavonoids, are also found in fruits and vegetables but appear in very high concentra tions in tea. In fact, new research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition links tea with cardiovascular health, cancer prevention, weight management, improved concentration and bone health, among others.Delightful T ea PairingsEach type of tea has a distinct set of flavor characteristics. Peter Goggi, President of the Tea Council of the USA, explains the flavor profiles of black, green, oolong and white teas, and how to pair them with your favorite foods.Black teas from traditional origins such as India, Sri Lanka and China, as well as English and Irish breakfast varieties and flavored black teas such as Earl Grey are characterized by a strong, aromatic flavor. These teas pair well with dark chocolate, sharp cheeses, eggs, meats and heartier foods because of their rich flavor and tannin levels.Green teas such as Sencha and Jasmine, have a more delicate flavor profile, characterized as grassy or citrusy and pair well with subtly flavored foods, such as seafood, rice and vegetables.Oolong teas, such as Wuyi Shan and Pouchong, are charac terized by a slight smoky flavor and a sweet, nutty finish. These teas pair well with spicy or smoky foods, seafood dishes and fruit.White teas exhibit a natural sweetness and lightness; the subtle flavors pair well with mild tasting sweets or simple salads that don t overpower the flavor of the tea. Start sampling the many flavors of tea with these recipes, and visit www .TeaUSA.or g for information about the role of tea in a healthy diet and lifestyle.Refreshing Iced TeaServings: 4 1 quart fresh, filtered water, cold 8 black or green tea bags Bring filtered water to a full boil in teapot.

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The Summer Fest kick off event, a Hawaiian Luau, was a huge hit for our residents who turned out in record numbers to eat a delicious meal; listen to great entertainment and laugh until their sides hurt. Like a storm blowing in off the Pacific Ocean; thunder clapped and lightning flashed in the early evening but by some stroke of nature; the storm sidestepped our little community. No rain dampened the spirits of the nearly 250 residents who came out to celebrate our first event in the 100 Days of Summer series. Jay OHern and his committee pulled off a near miracle by getting everyone through the dinner line within 30 minutes. The pulled pork was tender and delicious and accompanied by yams; fruit salad and more; the meal was fantastic. Watermelon topped off the dinner as everyone ate their fill. Entertainment was provided by Dawn and Steve Henrickson on their steel drums. These talented musicians played a wide variety of music appealing to the diverse audience. These two professional performers have been here before and they were one big reason for the large turn out at this event. Based on the rave revues, they will be back again. A special act was brought in for this luau; the Lovely Pair of Coconuts. Complete with grass skirts; coconut shell bras and smooth movements, this dance ensemble brought the house down with laughter. Fred OHern; Mick James; Chris Weiss; Bill Spangenberg and Dave Bragdon were our hula dancers and were a sight to behold. 50/50 Winners were Jim Heape; Jerry Moscariello and Fran Hall while Joyce Wonders; Jim Robison and Sandee Spencer took home door prizes. In short, it was just one super fun evening for everyone. We thank Chris and Mario Zacco who sponsored this event. Because of them, all four of our Summer Fest events are free to residents. We also wish to thank the Social Committee for all the hard work they put into making this luau such a great night.

The box is set aside for donations of school supplies to help young people in Marion Oaks when they return to classes in another couple of months. Donations of all sorts of school supplies are needed for children who cannot afford to purchase their own. Paper; notebooks; back packs; crayons; glue sticks; color pencils; essay books and pens are just a few of the things that students will need. If you pick up one or two items a week at the store and drop them in the box, we will soon have our first box filled.

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Last year Cherrywood donated three boxes full of supplies for deserving youngsters. School is tough enough so if we can make it a little easier on some students in need shouldnt we? I know well do well this year because of the generosity of our residents. Ladies LunchOn July 9, all of the ladies of Cherrywood are invited to come out and enjoy a friendly meal in the comfort of our clubhouse. Everyone brings a table setting and a favorite dish to pass. The result is a terrific meal shared with some terrific people in an informal, relaxed social setting. If you havent been to one of these luncheons youre missing a wonderful time so come out and join our ladies.Some schedule changesLine Dancing is a popular activity here at Cherrywood and usually meets on Tuesday evenings at 7. The first Tuesday of each month is usually set aside for Movie Night however so the dance class meets on the first Wednesday. Well, July is different. July we will make an exception and have the Line Dancing class on the first Tuesday. There will be no Movie Night in July so the dance team can meet on its regular night. Our Summer Fest will be getting together on the next evening, Wednesday, July 2. We hope that this isnt too confusing and that our line dancers and movie goers will be able to keep everything straight. If you have any questions, you can ask Geri. Movie Night will return in August and the Line Dancing class will resume its regular schedule the next week.BocceEach Saturday night at 7 you can join a large group of friendly people as they gather for a game of Bocce Ball and an evening of socializing. Our Bocce courts are located behind the clubhouse and so is the pool. That is why we have such a large turn out on these evenings. Our Bocce players and their fans occupy the courts for some cordial but stiff competition at this ancient game. Family and fans root on the various teams that are selected each night. By playing randomly no one has any particular advantage so the games are evenly matched. There are no cash prizes but rumor has it that in a week or two there will be bragging rights bestowed on the winners. While our Bocce players are doing their thing; another group floats and swims in the beautiful pool. Swimming is great exercise and very refreshing during these long hot days of summer. In addition to enjoying the water, those in the pool can chat with the land lovers who just sit at the tables around the pool. There is a large contingent of people who just like to be with friends and neighbors as they sit around and chat. After the Bocce and swimmers finish their activities; they join this group. Many people bring liquid refreshments; goodies and snacks to enjoy as they share laughs and stories with one another. For a relaxing and fun way to spend a Saturday night you cant beat Bocce Ball recreation night at Cherrywood. No tickets are required; you just bring your own treats and a smile and join in.Vets Benefit Resource FairIf you are a veteran of any branch of service; there is a special event especially designed for you. On Saturday, July 26 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. you can receive information of a wide variety of topics including; veterans claims services; education benefits; housing; social services and medical services.

Call Natlie at 854-4561 today to book your reservations for this terrific trip.From your reporterMany of us fondly remember reading stories to our children or grandchildren. It was amazing to see their little faces light up as their minds filled with images of far off places; wild creatures and heroic people involved in exciting adventures. Little did we as parents and grandparents know that we were giving our little ones a priceless gift; the gift of reading. A wise teacher once told me, If you can read a book you can do anything in the world you want. That statement is so true. No matter what we do in life, there is going to be reading involved. If a person wants to build a house; fly a plane; travel in space or just drive a car, they will have to know how to read and even more importantly; comprehend what they are reading. Words are very powerful and vital to our personality development. When we dont have a vocabulary to express our thoughts and feelings, we become frustrated and angry. Im convinced thats one reason that babies cry and many of our younger people act out. This week I was contacted by Jan Hathaway, the Literacy Manager of Reading Pals here in Marion County. She asked me to share with my readers some information about Reading Pals and I am only too happy to talk about this terrific project. Reading Pals pairs up volunteers with kindergarten students at different schools who are in need of special attention in acquiring reading skills. The volunteer reads to the little one and lets the youngster read to them. Thus, they become pals and that volunteer is able to pass along their reading and comprehension skills to the student. Most of the students come from homes where the parents dont have time to read to their children for various reasons. That is where the volunteers take up the slack and add a new dimension to the little ones learning. In the two years since it began, Reading Pals has been able to make huge improvements in the performance skills of its students. Volunteers receive a short training class and then spend one hour a week at a school close to their home. In the conference rooms of the libraries, mentors spend a half hour each with two different students. In the end, the youngster gets to keep the book and build their own little library. Dont worry about your age or let that keep you from volunteering for this project; there is no age limitation on sharing your knowledge or your love for reading. Just think of what a difference you can make in the lives of these young students. To be able to give the gift of reading; of knowledge; of inspiration; does it get any better than that? If you would like to be a part of Reading Pals contact Jan today by phone at 352-732-9696 ext. 212. Training classes are scheduled for June and July and she will be able to provide all the details you will need. If you have suggestions or comments concerning the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I am always pleased to hear from my readers. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 Dawn and Steve Henrickson entertaining at the luau. The crowd at the luau. This dance group provided many laughs at the luau. BunkoThe next Bunko game is Saturday, June 28, at 7 p.m., and its the last game scheduled until September. The sign-up sheet has been posted in the Lifestyle Center, so if you are planning to play Bunko this month, please make sure you put your name on the list. Last month, we had a very large crowd, and some people came down without signing up, said Leta Simmons, who runs the Bunko games. Its difficult to plan when we dont know how many folks are coming. Leta goes above and beyond when it comes to Bunko. In addition to organizing the game and setting up, she also provides prizes. Help setting up and especially cleaning up would be nice. It would make the work a little easier. For those not familiar with Bunko, it is a popular social dice game played in teams using three dice and a whole lot of luck. Theres a head table which regulates the game, and regardless of how many tables are playing, the game is over when the head tables scores 21 points, which is called a bunko. We play two segments of 6 games each, said Leta, and prizes are awarded at the end of the first and final segments. Bunko is one of the most popular activities in the community, and last month the number of players topped 50. Each player is asked to bring a $2 item in a brown paper bag for prizes, 25 cents each for your Bunko card and a snack to share. And please remember to put your name on the sign-up sheet so we know how many players to expect, or if you decide to play and havent signed up, please give Leta a call.TravelBelow is a listing of the currently scheduled trips offered by the Marion Landing Travel Committee.

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING Mary and Buck Buckoski were honored at the June 3 Tuesday Social with Marion Landings Volunteer Recognition Award. Board Treasurer Neil Williams introduced them as follows: It is my privilege this month to recognize a husband and wife team who have resided in Marion Landing for 15 years. You have seen them in various volunteer positions, but they also work un-noticed at times. They are members of Patrol and help with the holiday decorating at the Lifestyle Center. They are usually working as part of Joe Raffonys crew for breakfasts and dinners, and they have also served you at Tuesday [morning] socials. Both of them are members of the Sunshine Committee and are on a team that serves memorial lunches. When the time comes for Senior Games, they are involved. She is known as the greeter at the pool as she loves meeting people. We are so glad Wisconsin gave them up so our community could benefit from their personalities and involvement. It is an honor to present the Volunteer Recognition Award to Mary and Buck Buckoski. Their engraved nameplate will join those of the more than 168 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers, and we are seeking nominations of residents not previously recognized. Seeking nominationsDo you know someone you think should receive a Volunteer Recognition Award? If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director for consideration. Annual tubing tripIt was the annual gals only trip to Ichetucknee Springs State Park in Fort White on Wednesday, June 11, where 13 Marion Landing ladies spent the day enjoying a float down the Ichetucknee River. Carolyn Salzlein has been organizing this trip for more than ten years, and she says its usually a lot of fun, and it was still fun despite the fact that it was a shorter run than usual due to the lower river being closed and the 5-foot brown water snake which greeted us as we tried to get out of the tubes and up the ladder. A terrific lunch afterward at the Great Outdoors Restaurant in High Springs calmed their nerves and everyone had a good laugh at the adventure. Located in Ichetucknee Springs State Park, the crystalline Ichetucknee River flows six miles through shaded hammocks and wetlands before it joins the Santa Fe River. From the end of May until early September, tubing down the river is the premier activity in the area. You can choose to take a 45 minute, 1.5 hour or a 3 hour float, and in addition to tubing, you can enjoy picnicking, snorkeling, canoeing, swimming, hiking, and wildlife viewing. More information on Floridas parks and activities is available at www.floridastateparks.com. When activities and day trips such as this one are organized in Marion Landing, a flyer is posted on the Activities Wall in the Lifestyle Center so residents can sign up and join in on the fun. Shuffleboard challengeThe men and ladies are at it again! The next Shuffleboard Challenge is tomorrow at 7 p.m., and if youd like to play, you can still sign up on the sheet posted in the Lifestyle Center. The new scoring system implemented by Lina Vallejo and Leon Mears is going well, said Abby Litchert, who organizes the monthly event. Spectators are welcome to come down to the courts and cheer for their favorite team. Its a great way to spend a Saturday evening among your friends and neighbors. Come on down!July 4th PartyTickets are going fast for the Fourth of July Celebration. The potluck picnic with food, music, games, raffles and prizes is sure to make your holiday fun.

Does everybody feel like the days are going too fast? That is why, friends I do not want to waste a single day or even a moment. There is so much to do around Oak Run and also Ocala. I would encourage all of you be involved. For instance how about decorating your cart and joining in the Fourth of July golf cart parade or go to the Orchid Club for the Patriotic program. There are always people playing on the tennis, bocce, or shuffle board courts. You arent up to being in the heat then how about volunteering for the NAP group. Saturday I went to the Showcase of Stars and had a great time enjoying our own O.R. talent, visiting with neighbors and it is free. Check out the Citizen and see what is happening out our way. Please just keep as active as you are able so you can enjoy each and every moment. I am always impressed by the volunteers around Oak Run and the area. It just goes to show us seniors have a lot to offer. So now lets seen just what is happening around our community.

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 15 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com TO ADVERTISECall854-3986 ADVERTISING Mary and Buck Buckoski were honored at the June 3 Tuesday Social with Marion Landings Volunteer Recognition Award. Board Treasurer Neil Williams introduced them as follows: It is my privilege this month to recognize a husband and wife team who have resided in Marion Landing for 15 years. You have seen them in various volunteer positions, but they also work un-noticed at times. They are members of Patrol and help with the holiday decorating at the Lifestyle Center. They are usually working as part of Joe Raffonys crew for breakfasts and dinners, and they have also served you at Tuesday [morning] socials. Both of them are members of the Sunshine Committee and are on a team that serves memorial lunches. When the time comes for Senior Games, they are involved. She is known as the greeter at the pool as she loves meeting people. We are so glad Wisconsin gave them up so our community could benefit from their personalities and involvement. It is an honor to present the Volunteer Recognition Award to Mary and Buck Buckoski. Their engraved nameplate will join those of the more than 168 other volunteers recognized by the community since 2001, all of which are posted in the Lifestyle Center. Award recipients are chosen from a list of residents who are nominated for the award by their peers, and we are seeking nominations of residents not previously recognized. Seeking nominationsDo you know someone you think should receive a Volunteer Recognition Award? If you would like to nominate a fellow resident for a volunteer recognition award, please forward your recommendation, in writing, to a Board member, member of the Activities Support Committee, or the Activities Director for consideration. Annual tubing tripIt was the annual gals only trip to Ichetucknee Springs State Park in Fort White on Wednesday, June 11, where 13 Marion Landing ladies spent the day enjoying a float down the Ichetucknee River. Carolyn Salzlein has been organizing this trip for more than ten years, and she says its usually a lot of fun, and it was still fun despite the fact that it was a shorter run than usual due to the lower river being closed and the 5-foot brown water snake which greeted us as we tried to get out of the tubes and up the ladder. A terrific lunch afterward at the Great Outdoors Restaurant in High Springs calmed their nerves and everyone had a good laugh at the adventure. Located in Ichetucknee Springs State Park, the crystalline Ichetucknee River flows six miles through shaded hammocks and wetlands before it joins the Santa Fe River. From the end of May until early September, tubing down the river is the premier activity in the area. You can choose to take a 45 minute, 1.5 hour or a 3 hour float, and in addition to tubing, you can enjoy picnicking, snorkeling, canoeing, swimming, hiking, and wildlife viewing. More information on Floridas parks and activities is available at www.floridastateparks.com. When activities and day trips such as this one are organized in Marion Landing, a flyer is posted on the Activities Wall in the Lifestyle Center so residents can sign up and join in on the fun. Shuffleboard challengeThe men and ladies are at it again! The next Shuffleboard Challenge is tomorrow at 7 p.m., and if youd like to play, you can still sign up on the sheet posted in the Lifestyle Center. The new scoring system implemented by Lina Vallejo and Leon Mears is going well, said Abby Litchert, who organizes the monthly event. Spectators are welcome to come down to the courts and cheer for their favorite team. Its a great way to spend a Saturday evening among your friends and neighbors. Come on down!July 4th PartyTickets are going fast for the Fourth of July Celebration. The potluck picnic with food, music, games, raffles and prizes is sure to make your holiday fun.

Marion Landing Diane Bress PLEASESEELANDING, PAGE16 Dear Readers In two weeks we will be celebrating July 4. It seems like I just rode in the golf parade but that was last year. Does everybody feel like the days are going too fast? That is why, friends I do not want to waste a single day or even a moment. There is so much to do around Oak Run and also Ocala. I would encourage all of you be involved. For instance how about decorating your cart and joining in the Fourth of July golf cart parade or go to the Orchid Club for the Patriotic program. There are always people playing on the tennis, bocce, or shuffle board courts. You arent up to being in the heat then how about volunteering for the NAP group. Saturday I went to the Showcase of Stars and had a great time enjoying our own O.R. talent, visiting with neighbors and it is free. Check out the Citizen and see what is happening out our way. Please just keep as active as you are able so you can enjoy each and every moment. I am always impressed by the volunteers around Oak Run and the area. It just goes to show us seniors have a lot to offer. So now lets seen just what is happening around our community.

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 16~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Last year Cherrywood donated three boxes full of supplies for deserving youngsters. School is tough enough so if we can make it a little easier on some students in need shouldnt we? I know well do well this year because of the generosity of our residents. Ladies LunchOn July 9, all of the ladies of Cherrywood are invited to come out and enjoy a friendly meal in the comfort of our clubhouse. Everyone brings a table setting and a favorite dish to pass. The result is a terrific meal shared with some terrific people in an informal, relaxed social setting. If you havent been to one of these luncheons youre missing a wonderful time so come out and join our ladies.Some schedule changesLine Dancing is a popular activity here at Cherrywood and usually meets on Tuesday evenings at 7. The first Tuesday of each month is usually set aside for Movie Night however so the dance class meets on the first Wednesday. Well, July is different. July we will make an exception and have the Line Dancing class on the first Tuesday. There will be no Movie Night in July so the dance team can meet on its regular night. Our Summer Fest will be getting together on the next evening, Wednesday, July 2. We hope that this isnt too confusing and that our line dancers and movie goers will be able to keep everything straight. If you have any questions, you can ask Geri. Movie Night will return in August and the Line Dancing class will resume its regular schedule the next week.BocceEach Saturday night at 7 you can join a large group of friendly people as they gather for a game of Bocce Ball and an evening of socializing. Our Bocce courts are located behind the clubhouse and so is the pool. That is why we have such a large turn out on these evenings. Our Bocce players and their fans occupy the courts for some cordial but stiff competition at this ancient game. Family and fans root on the various teams that are selected each night. By playing randomly no one has any particular advantage so the games are evenly matched. There are no cash prizes but rumor has it that in a week or two there will be bragging rights bestowed on the winners. While our Bocce players are doing their thing; another group floats and swims in the beautiful pool. Swimming is great exercise and very refreshing during these long hot days of summer. In addition to enjoying the water, those in the pool can chat with the land lovers who just sit at the tables around the pool. There is a large contingent of people who just like to be with friends and neighbors as they sit around and chat. After the Bocce and swimmers finish their activities; they join this group. Many people bring liquid refreshments; goodies and snacks to enjoy as they share laughs and stories with one another. For a relaxing and fun way to spend a Saturday night you cant beat Bocce Ball recreation night at Cherrywood. No tickets are required; you just bring your own treats and a smile and join in.Vets Benefit Resource FairIf you are a veteran of any branch of service; there is a special event especially designed for you. On Saturday, July 26 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. you can receive information of a wide variety of topics including; veterans claims services; education benefits; housing; social services and medical services.

Call Natlie at 854-4561 today to book your reservations for this terrific trip.From your reporterMany of us fondly remember reading stories to our children or grandchildren. It was amazing to see their little faces light up as their minds filled with images of far off places; wild creatures and heroic people involved in exciting adventures. Little did we as parents and grandparents know that we were giving our little ones a priceless gift; the gift of reading. A wise teacher once told me, If you can read a book you can do anything in the world you want. That statement is so true. No matter what we do in life, there is going to be reading involved. If a person wants to build a house; fly a plane; travel in space or just drive a car, they will have to know how to read and even more importantly; comprehend what they are reading. Words are very powerful and vital to our personality development. When we dont have a vocabulary to express our thoughts and feelings, we become frustrated and angry. Im convinced thats one reason that babies cry and many of our younger people act out. This week I was contacted by Jan Hathaway, the Literacy Manager of Reading Pals here in Marion County. She asked me to share with my readers some information about Reading Pals and I am only too happy to talk about this terrific project. Reading Pals pairs up volunteers with kindergarten students at different schools who are in need of special attention in acquiring reading skills. The volunteer reads to the little one and lets the youngster read to them. Thus, they become pals and that volunteer is able to pass along their reading and comprehension skills to the student. Most of the students come from homes where the parents dont have time to read to their children for various reasons. That is where the volunteers take up the slack and add a new dimension to the little ones learning. In the two years since it began, Reading Pals has been able to make huge improvements in the performance skills of its students. Volunteers receive a short training class and then spend one hour a week at a school close to their home. In the conference rooms of the libraries, mentors spend a half hour each with two different students. In the end, the youngster gets to keep the book and build their own little library. Dont worry about your age or let that keep you from volunteering for this project; there is no age limitation on sharing your knowledge or your love for reading. Just think of what a difference you can make in the lives of these young students. To be able to give the gift of reading; of knowledge; of inspiration; does it get any better than that? If you would like to be a part of Reading Pals contact Jan today by phone at 352-732-9696 ext. 212. Training classes are scheduled for June and July and she will be able to provide all the details you will need. If you have suggestions or comments concerning the Cherrywood section of your Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. I am always pleased to hear from my readers. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 Dawn and Steve Henrickson entertaining at the luau. The crowd at the luau. This dance group provided many laughs at the luau. BunkoThe next Bunko game is Saturday, June 28, at 7 p.m., and its the last game scheduled until September. The sign-up sheet has been posted in the Lifestyle Center, so if you are planning to play Bunko this month, please make sure you put your name on the list. Last month, we had a very large crowd, and some people came down without signing up, said Leta Simmons, who runs the Bunko games. Its difficult to plan when we dont know how many folks are coming. Leta goes above and beyond when it comes to Bunko. In addition to organizing the game and setting up, she also provides prizes. Help setting up and especially cleaning up would be nice. It would make the work a little easier. For those not familiar with Bunko, it is a popular social dice game played in teams using three dice and a whole lot of luck. Theres a head table which regulates the game, and regardless of how many tables are playing, the game is over when the head tables scores 21 points, which is called a bunko. We play two segments of 6 games each, said Leta, and prizes are awarded at the end of the first and final segments. Bunko is one of the most popular activities in the community, and last month the number of players topped 50. Each player is asked to bring a $2 item in a brown paper bag for prizes, 25 cents each for your Bunko card and a snack to share. And please remember to put your name on the sign-up sheet so we know how many players to expect, or if you decide to play and havent signed up, please give Leta a call.TravelBelow is a listing of the currently scheduled trips offered by the Marion Landing Travel Committee.

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 17 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com The Summer Fest kick off event, a Hawaiian Luau, was a huge hit for our residents who turned out in record numbers to eat a delicious meal; listen to great entertainment and laugh until their sides hurt. Like a storm blowing in off the Pacific Ocean; thunder clapped and lightning flashed in the early evening but by some stroke of nature; the storm sidestepped our little community. No rain dampened the spirits of the nearly 250 residents who came out to celebrate our first event in the 100 Days of Summer series. Jay OHern and his committee pulled off a near miracle by getting everyone through the dinner line within 30 minutes. The pulled pork was tender and delicious and accompanied by yams; fruit salad and more; the meal was fantastic. Watermelon topped off the dinner as everyone ate their fill. Entertainment was provided by Dawn and Steve Henrickson on their steel drums. These talented musicians played a wide variety of music appealing to the diverse audience. These two professional performers have been here before and they were one big reason for the large turn out at this event. Based on the rave revues, they will be back again. A special act was brought in for this luau; the Lovely Pair of Coconuts. Complete with grass skirts; coconut shell bras and smooth movements, this dance ensemble brought the house down with laughter. Fred OHern; Mick James; Chris Weiss; Bill Spangenberg and Dave Bragdon were our hula dancers and were a sight to behold. 50/50 Winners were Jim Heape; Jerry Moscariello and Fran Hall while Joyce Wonders; Jim Robison and Sandee Spencer took home door prizes. In short, it was just one super fun evening for everyone. We thank Chris and Mario Zacco who sponsored this event. Because of them, all four of our Summer Fest events are free to residents. We also wish to thank the Social Committee for all the hard work they put into making this luau such a great night.

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com It all started with Adam. Actually Eve had a hand in it too but ever since the First Family had children, being a Mom or a Dad has become an important part of the greater society of humanity. Since Dads special day was last weekend, I thought it would be interesting to look at the famous dads in the Bible as well as how the Jewish tradition looks at God as a father figure. We really cant blame Adam for his messed up son, Cain who killed his brother Abel. After all, he didnt exactly have Dr. Spock to consult. But as we wend our way through the Hebrew Bible, we find that the patriarchal families were pretty dysfunctional and that they mirror the human condition even today. From sibling rivalry to rebellion against parents, its all there in the Bible for us to explore. At the end of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Lots daughters, fearful that there would be no men for them to have children with to continue the human race, get their father drunk and have intercourse with him. The two women give birth to sons who are the scions of the Moabites and Ammonites. (Gen.19 32-38) The first patriarch, Abraham, a man of deep faith and conviction, nevertheless was ready to sacrifice his beloved son as an offering to God. In modern psychological terms, poor Isaac probably suffered from post traumatic stress disorder as a result of that experience by the hands of his father. Isaac favored his more athletic son, Esau, rather than the more studious Jacob, according to Jewish legend. When blind from cataracts due to advanced age, he is tricked into giving his blessing to Jacob; the leadership of the tribe is set into the hands of Jacob. While we know that favoring one child over another is not a good parenting practice, unfortunately Jacob makes the same mistake with his sons. In the enduring story of Joseph and his brothers, Joseph is given a beautiful mantle of different colors as a gift. His jealous brothers see this as a sign of favoritism from their father Jacob and they plot their brothers fate. They are also angry because they fear that Joseph will become the head of the clan because only important leaders could wear such a fine garment. And as Jacob finally reconciles with his brother Esau over the birthright issue, so do Josephs brothers reconcile with Joseph in the end of the story. At the end of the story, Joseph forgives his brothers for selling him into slavery and we are left with a tale of sibling rivalry, which eventually leads to forgiveness. And we have the parents who dedicate their sons to Gods service. Samson becomes a Nazarite and Samuel becomes a prophet. How hard this must have been for their respective fathers (and mothers) to do. In both cases, they do this in compliance with a vow to God that if given a child, the child would be a servant of the Lord. When it comes to being a dad, King David tops them all. The humble shepherd boy soon becomes corrupt with power when anointed king. His beloved son Absalom (ironically name means father of peace) rebels against his father and the young man is killed while fleeing from his fathers army. His son Solomon eventually is named his successor, but he is the product of a wicked plot that kills his mothers husband in battle so David, who got Bathsheba pregnant, can be legally wed. In spite of all these human failings of fathers in the Bible, the father figure stands proud as a symbol of strength and compassion. The Jewish liturgy is filled with imagery as God the Father who watches over us all. While the more liberal branches have become more gender sensitive in recent years using more neutral terms, traditional Judaism still uses the father figure in much of its liturgy. This imagery is especially strong during the High Holiday days and in particular on Yom Kippur. Here in some of the most poignant prayers of the liturgical year, we find many references to God as a compassionate father to his children. Whereas mothers tend to be nurturing and warm, it is dad who metes out the punishment when children misbehave. (Wait till your father comes home!) It is this kind of thinking that seems to prevail through the High Holiday season. God is seen as a judge and a father of mercy. In the beautiful prayer, Avinu Malkeinu, our Father, our King, the two concepts of merciful father and judging king meld together to form the Jewish concept of judgment tempered with mercy, attributes we assign to God. In the end, we are commanded to honor our father and mother. Interestingly, dad comes first. It is easier to love Mom, shes a softie, but Dad, that could be another matter. Perhaps the Father of us all knows best. After all, those are his commandments.

Approximately 85 percent of tea consumed in America is iced, but the soothing and refresh ing flavors of tea can also infuse fresh and unexpected charac ter into a wide range of dishes,fromdessertstopopularfingerfoodslikechickenwings. What s more, tea has been shown to have significant health benefits. As green, black, oolong and white teas all come from the Camellia sinensis plant, tea drinkers can reap the health benefits from whichever tea they prefer The major bioactive compounds in tea, called flavonoids, are also found in fruits and vegetables but appear in very high concentra tions in tea. In fact, new research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition links tea with cardiovascular health, cancer prevention, weight management, improved concentration and bone health, among others.Delightful T ea PairingsEach type of tea has a distinct set of flavor characteristics. Peter Goggi, President of the Tea Council of the USA, explains the flavor profiles of black, green, oolong and white teas, and how to pair them with your favorite foods.Black teas from traditional origins such as India, Sri Lanka and China, as well as English and Irish breakfast varieties and flavored black teas such as Earl Grey are characterized by a strong, aromatic flavor. These teas pair well with dark chocolate, sharp cheeses, eggs, meats and heartier foods because of their rich flavor and tannin levels.Green teas such as Sencha and Jasmine, have a more delicate flavor profile, characterized as grassy or citrusy and pair well with subtly flavored foods, such as seafood, rice and vegetables.Oolong teas, such as Wuyi Shan and Pouchong, are charac terized by a slight smoky flavor and a sweet, nutty finish. These teas pair well with spicy or smoky foods, seafood dishes and fruit.White teas exhibit a natural sweetness and lightness; the subtle flavors pair well with mild tasting sweets or simple salads that don t overpower the flavor of the tea. Start sampling the many flavors of tea with these recipes, and visit www .TeaUSA.or g for information about the role of tea in a healthy diet and lifestyle.Refreshing Iced TeaServings: 4 1 quart fresh, filtered water, cold 8 black or green tea bags Bring filtered water to a full boil in teapot.

One of Oak Runs favorite clubs continues to gain popularity as membership and attendance grows. At the June meeting of PACOR housekeeping items as well as important developments for the fall production were discussed. Of paramount importance is the securing of a synthesizer player. So many musicals, including our fall selection Hello Dolly! require that, when we purchase the rights to perform, the score be performed to live music. Commented Marlena Yaich, selection committee member. We must adhere to the terms of the contract and do not have much in the way of live music and musicians at our disposal. Our piano, though lovely, does not offer the range of instrument sounds that a synthesizer would. The person enlisted to do this for the company would make a recording for practices and play live for three performances in the fall. There is financial compensation available for the artist that would like to step forward. Equipment and recording technology will be made available. Interested parties can contact Dick Caza at 352-274-9574. The company also announced the need for a stage manager for the production. This person is in charge of coordinating the set and working with the directors on flow. This persons role will be limited at first with increasing importance as show dates approach. Scripts were handed out to company members who expressed interest in trying out for the production of Hello Dolly! These scripts will be used and rotated to other members in advance of tryouts Tuesday, June 24, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Thursday, June 26, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 28, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., all at the Palm Grove Auditorium. A special need for chorus members was raised and it was reinforced that Hello Dolly! is a chorus-intensive show with many members needed. Special arrangements for the chorus will be made to limit practice time. Marci Hutto, who will serve as music director, offered her assistance to all those interested in trying out. Marci has an extensive background in music and has helped many in the group find their voice. Those that may have been just an occasionally good singer have been helped to achieve a consistent sound in notes that are right for the individual. Dick Caza, director and Bruce McDuffee, set manager, previewed a scaled model of the set that will be developed to the delight of many that know the work that goes into the production. Pieces and parts must fold into one another very tightly in order to best use the limited space, commented Bruce. Bruce was nominated for this important and labor intensive role while traveling across country earlier this spring. The board announced that formal plans for acquisition of a spotlight will be announced at the upcoming July meeting. Its important to us to reinvest the small profits we make to improving the experience for our audience. This purchase will usher in a new and improved approach to lighting the stage for our productions, comments Howard Spies, publicist for the company. There are still many, many ways to get involved with this fun club and the membership encourages all interested to join the fun.Royal Oak Ladies Niners golfOn June 12, the game was Best Balls.

Then she noticed the envelope I had placed in her lap, she turned around and stared at me a stare I have not had from her in a very long time. Just a minute, I heard her say to the other person on the phone, and then she looked at me. Then it came. Is this the bill you were supposed to send out last month? Lying at this moment would not have been productive in any fashion. She opened the envelope and there was the check dutifully written out to the Comcast Company. She was able to pay the bill over the phone and then it would be my turn to pay. David who got in a lot of trouble understood this when he wrote, I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah (Psalms 32:5). Swallowing pride or eating crow is not my idea of a delightful repast but it can be the beginning of something good.Rev. James L.

a made this past weekend was whether to use a nine iron or a wedge Time to elect a [resident and rid ourselves of his lowness. Bill Riola Oak RunDream TeamAs if we didnt have enough with President Obamas scandals and follies we now have this prisoner of war fiasco. A Dream Team selected would you believe by the Taliban and released from Gitmo for one American captive and he a deserter or worse who likely caused the death of at least six servicemen looking for him. Mind you, these five Taliban terrorists were the most important and dangerous prisoners there. Some swap. Yet! Susan Rice who should know better after those Benghazi talking points says that Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction. She must be from another planet. To make things more bizarre this sergeant got two promotions while in Taliban hands with another one coming up while still being eligible for all that back pay. If all this wasnt true, I would think I was dreaming. Yes! Only in America and especially with this Obama administration. Bob Cronin Oak Run. Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A change of season reinvigorates the Lamb, helping to overcome the effects of a recent slower-paced period. This is a good time to restate your feelings for that certain someone. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might not like using your authority to correct a workplace situation, but thats what being placed in charge is all about. Besides, you have people ready to lend support if need be. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your creativity continues to run high and helps guide you to make fine choices in the work youre doing. Keep the weekend free for the special people in your life. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Dont be surprised if you experience a sudden spurt of energy strong enough to pull you out of that recent period of indecision and put you back in charge of your own goals. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time for Leos and Leonas to set new goals regarding health, educational choices and possible career moves. The plans you make now could be a blueprint for your future. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might have much to offer a potential employer, but it can all be overwhelmed by too many details. Let the facts about you speak for themselves without any embellishments. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a good week to balance your responsibilities to your workaday world with your obligations to the people in your private life. Expect news that could lead to a change in plans. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A changing attitude on the part of a once determined adversary could cause changes down the line. Be prepared to take advantage of an unexpected new opportunity. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Youd be truly wise to be skeptical about an offer that doesnt answer all your questions. Even a colleagues testimonial doesnt replace facts that arent there. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Avoid spending on unnecessary purchases this week in order to keep a money reserve against a possible upcoming (but, fortunately, temporary) shortfall. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) More information is what you should demand regarding that workplace situation that recently came to light. Dont be surprised at who might turn up as one of your supporters. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might still be in a treading water mode, but by midweek, a shift in your aspect favors taking a more active role in pushing for changes you feel are necessary. LETTERSCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Ihave noticed lately that I have been getting in trouble with the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, at least more than normal. I am at the stage of life where this kind of thing needs to be brought to a bare minimum. At the end of each month my wife will quiz me as to if I have paid all of the bills. In my rhetorical answer is always, I sure did, my lady. Then I will bow before her. For some reason she does not get the humor of that. My job is to pay the bills and her job is to make sure the end of the month I have paid the bills. This has been our relationship for longer than I can recall. Every once in a while I get in a little tickle mode and dramatically declare that I forgot to pay the bills for the month. Oh my, what will we do? The first time I did that, she threw a smile in my direction. I dramatically would catch it and put it in my pocket. I notice she has not been throwing smiles at me lately. Honestly, who can blame her? It was toward the middle of the month when the cable went dead. We had no telephone, TV or Internet service. The first thing my wife said was, You did pay the Comcast bill, didnt you? I put on my regular show and assured her that I did. We had to call the Comcast Company, but as it stood, we had no telephone service. Fortunately, my wife had her cell phone and called the Comcast Company to see what the problem was, maybe the service had gone out in our neighborhood. One thing about my wife getting on the telephone for such a thing as finding out why we had no service is that she does not have patience. She hates being put on hold. I hate her being put on hold because she usually takes out her frustration on me. Now, what do I have to do with that? After all, I did pay the bill. In fact, I went to the checkbook and showed her the number of the check and the amount of the check. There, I said most adamantly, I paid the bill. After about 45 minutes of waiting rather impatiently, my wife finally connected with the service representative who was able to help her. I did not hear the conversation, but I knew it must have been quite serious because I could see in her face that she was getting angrier by the minute. We paid our bill on time, she protested in a very stern manner. My husband has the check number to prove that he wrote the check out. I was sitting in my easy chair going through my briefcase enjoying the drama that was unfolding before me. I love it when somebody is in trouble and that somebody is not me. I must confess it does not happen that often, but when it does happen, I take full advantage of it. I was gloating just a little bit and feeling pretty good about myself. I had my briefcase and was sorting out some papers and getting ready for the next day when I ran across a bunch of envelopes. I looked at them, then looked over at my wife, and then looked back at the pile of envelopes and all of the color drained from my face. I could not believe what I found in my briefcase. There in a neat bundle where all of the bills I had written out for the previous month. The checks had been written, signed and placed in the proper envelope with a postage stamp on it. All of the bills for the month were there staring at me with such vicious eyes as I have never seen before. What will I do now? I knew I had to face the music and it was not a song I enjoyed. I picked up the envelope with the Comcast bill address on the front, took it over to my wife as she was on the phone to the Comcast representatives, laid it on her lap and then walked away. I know my husband paid the bill beSwallowing pride or eating crow are both bitter pills to swallow Out to Pastor Rev.

Anews service report about the recent Republican Leadership Conference said it was a New experience for the GOP: No heir apparent. Historically Republicans select a nominee for president who is considered next in line to receive the nod. That fixation worked when selecting Ronald Reagan and two members of the Bush family, but not for John McCain and Bob Dole. Struggling in 2008 and 2012, Republicans staged suicide discussions for herds of would-be candidates. The party succeeded in highlighting every flaw which contestants wanted to pin on each other. The voters listened to the shows and voted accordingly. At their recent conference GOP delegates discussed a group of names which might include someone who could lead their party back into the White House in 2016 Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, and Dr. Ben Carson. Some of the potential leaders have said or hinted that they are interested in the nomination. We wonder whether the potential nominees have asked themselves if they want to risk being remembered as the candidate who lost to the first female president. There is talk that Hillary Clinton hasnt made up her mind to run for president in 2016. We believe otherwise. In college she was active in school government. Hillary hinted an interest in becoming the first female president in 1969, when she was the first student commencement speaker at Wellesley College. She said vaguely that the challenge for the graduates would be to practice politics as the art of making possible what appears to be impossible. Its reasonable to surmise that she has been running subtly for the oval office ever since. Over the past 45 years student Hillary Rodham has trained herself into a complete politician, all the while studying up-close how to manage a state, a house of Congress, a cabinet appointment, and a nation. It is understandable that more than eighty percent of female voters want Hillary to run for president. She has been supportive of womens needs and rights around the world. We believe her only serious consideration now is whether to change her mind and drop out. Republicans might want to keep her decision in their prayers. Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, June 20, 2014 Jim Flynn Columnist Some of my grandchildren love playing soccer. Two of the boys plan to go to camp, or something like that, to help them play better. I havent gotten to see them play in over a year, and I understand theyve improved tremendously from the little guys running around the field to good players who understand the game. Im always glad to see young people get involved in team sports. It teaches a lot of things about teamwork, socialization, accepting blame, modestly accepting praise, etc. For myself, I coached a lot of youth baseball and basketball over the years, and I probably got as much out of it as the kids did. However, I never coached soccer. I simply didnt know enough about the intricacies of the game. Oh, I knew the offside rule, etc., but not the skills needed to play. Hockey is another story. Growing up in the New York area, I was a Rangers fan. I had a friend who was in the PR department of the Rangers, and he used to get me and my girlfriend (later my wife) front row mezzanine seats in the old Madison Square Garden on 50th Street and Broadway (thats why some people still call the Rangers the Broadway Blues). I knew all the rules, knew the players, knew the opponents bad guys, etc. Hockey really moved fast, and even though you might only have two or three goals a game, the speed kept you on the edge of your seat. We just finished with the Stanley Cup Playoffs last week, with the Los Angeles Kings defeating the Rangers in a series of thrilling overtime games. We are now blessed with something in soccer called the World Cup, in which various nations send teams to one country, this year its Brazil, to complete in eight pools with the top two finishers in each pool going into the championship round. Games are widely spread out over days and over the country. At the risk of offending all you soccer fans out there, I find that soccer is nothing but slow hockey. Its the same basic principle, with scoring in the opponents net, low-scoring games, and may be one rush that has a chance of producing a goal every two minutes or so, instead of every 15 seconds or so in hockey. It is a sport with all sorts of chances for corruption. There is a referee who calls all the penalties, and keeps the clock. There is a clock for everyone to see, but its not official. In this day of modern technology, I have to wonder why not. They have something called stoppage time. Its added on to each half to make up for time used for injuries, etc. Why in heavens name they just cant wave their arms to stop the visible clock, then start it again when play resumes, making the clock official, Ill never know. Frankly, theres too much power invested in these referees, and to me that opens the door to possible shenanigans. One bad call and everyone thinks the ref has been bought, which Im sure isnt the case but which is possible. So next season, Ill work my way to Palatka to watch my grandsons play, and Ill cheer for them and congratulate them on playing a good game. Its very important to them and I wouldnt want to spoil that. Just dont show them this column. Pretty soon theyre going to be 10 and 9 years old, and I wouldnt want to spoil their image of me. I just think I ought to buy them each a pair of ice skates. But then again, its a long trip to find the nearest rink.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Do not use any other word processing programs. There was a lesson last week on why we vote on Election Day, and why we dont depend on the polls. Occasionally, the polls, and the media, get it wrong. Such was the case of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who was upset in the Virginia Republican primary last week by an economics professor at Randolph Macon named David Brat. As late as last Tuesday morning, notable pundits such as those at the Washington Post were publishing articles about how Cantor would be the next Speaker of the House. As it turned out, Cantor wont even be in the House when the next session starts in January 2015. Now the national press is making another mistake, completely ignoring another professor, this time one who teaches history. His name is Jack Trammel, and he also works at Randolph Macon. Just a little while ago, Trammel, a Democrat, decided to run for Congress against Eric Cantor. But he wont be facing Cantor, hell be facing a colleague, Brat. Talk about being thrust into the limelight. Virginia is an open primary state, meaning that Democrats could have voted in the Republican primary. It means that Democrats could have been voting against Cantor, hoping for an easy road to Congress for Trammel. Cantors problem, however, may have been rooted in the fact that people didnt feel he spent enough time in his district. He wasnt even there on primary day. Between his primary two years ago and this years stunning defeat, Cantor lost more than 8,000 votes. That means that either his backers were reading the polls and didnt turn out, or his support was eroding and he didnt know it. Theres a message there for incumbents across the land: Dont get too sure about re-election. Spend more time in your districts, talking to constituents, finding out what they are thinking. We had an example around here two years ago, when Ted Yoho ousted Cliff Stearns in the Republican primary. So people shouldnt be shocked when a supposedly safe seat is lost by either party. But the emphasis remains on voting. Nothing happens until the ballots are counted. So when these elections roll around, starting on Aug. 26, make plans to get out and vote. If you dont and your candidate loses, you have no one to blame but yourself. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY This is why we bother to vote Everyone watching soccer? Not quite Is it inevitable that Hillary wins the election? READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Reminder to all: Early deadlines for July 4 issue LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Silent no longerI have been silent for nearly two years. Events of the past couple of weeks make that no longer possible. First we learned that veterans are dying for lack of service. Obama says info did not reach the higher ranks of government. Of course, in 2008 and every year since, he said he would fix the problems of the VA. Next came the release of five terrorists for one alleged deserter. Then it came to light that thousands of children are crossing the border because Obama told them they could stay. Following a speech on Tuesday where it was said the world has never been safer, the most terrifying group ever assembled (and led by a former GITMO detainee) invaded Iraq. And just for good measure Lois Learners hard drive was melted and thousands of incriminating e-mails were said to have been lost. My Liberal friends say at least we are not at war What? 100 years ago Wilson said the same thing. 75 years ago Roosevelt said so too. 65 years ago we did not go to war in Korea under Truman and 55 years ago we failed to support Kennedy/Johnson in Vietnam. In the past century American lack of commitment led to in order loss of some 10 million lives; loss of some 60 million lives; were still in Korea and we lost in Vietnam. (Note: All of the above were Democrats.) Just like in the schoolyard, whenever you show weakness the bullies take advantage. Just on a bigger stage. As of this writing, the most PLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE1 The U.S. Open Golf Championship for men just finished on June 15 and the U.S. Womens Open Championship is now under way, ending on June 22. What makes this notable is that both are on the same golf course in North Carolina. With both men and women thinking about golf, Pun Alley just has to have some appropriate stories.Real golf coupleA husband and wife were on the 9th green when suddenly she collapsed from a heart attack. Help me dear, she groaned to her husband. The husband called 911 on his cell phone, talked for a few minutes, picked up his putter, and lined up his putt. His wife raised her head off the green and stared at him. Im dying here and youre putting? Dont worry dear, said the husband calmly, they found a cardiologist on the second hole and hes coming to help you. Well, how long will it take for him to get here? she asked feebly. No time at all, said her husband. Everybodys already agreed to let him play through.Careful aimThe retiree stood over his tee shot for what seemed an eternity, looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, and figuring the wind direction and speed. Generally, he was driving his partner nuts. Finally his exasperated partner said, What is taking so long? Hit the ball! The retiree answered, My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot. His partner pondered this for a moment, and then replied, Forget it man, you dont have a chance of hitting her from here!Count on itA gushy reporter asked a famous golfer, You are spectacular and your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. Whats your secret? The golfer replied, The holes are numbered.Short puttsThe only time a golfer tells the truth is when he calls another golfer a liar. A golf ball is a golf ball, no matter how you putt it. Old Golfers never die; they just lose their drive. He was teed off with his bad start, driving the ball almost beyond the green, but he was able to putt it behind him. Your golf addiction is driving a wedge between us. The golfer guessed that his ball landed 20 feet off the fairway. Of course, that was just a rough estimate. If you golf on election day, cast an absent-tee ballot. Golf is a game where the ball lies poorly and the golfers lie well. Two longtime golf buddies were standing on a tee box overlooking a river, getting ready to hit their tee shots. One golfer pointed down the river, turned to the other golfer and said, Look at those idiots fishing in the rain!Say What?The young honeymooners were out on the golf course, and the groom was explaining the basics of the sport to his bride. Tee the ball, he instructed. Theres no need for baby talk, she huffed.Foregone conclusionWhile he was strolling along the promenade behind the country club, Ralph was struck on the head with a golf ball. He staggered back, dazed, and leaned against the wall; his vision was just clearing as he heard a man yelling to him from the course, Im sorry! Sorry? Ralph moaned as the man ran over. Mister, Im going to sue you for at least $5 million. Look, I know youre upset, but I did say fore. What? I said fore. Ralph rubbed his head. Fine. Ill take it. Ball choiceAfter leaving every putt one roll short of the cup all day long, the frustrated golfer finally asked his playing partners for some advice. The first thing you have to do is stop using that Latin American ball, one of them said. A Latin American ball? he asked. Whats a Latin American ball? Dont you know? said his friend. A Latin American ball is a ball that always needs another revolution. Bards advice Did you know that Shakespeare was a golfer? one golfer asked his buddy. No, said his buddy, I had no clue Shakespeare was a golfer. Well is happens to be true, he said. Im surprised you didnt know that. Arent you familiar with one of his most famous lines? I guess Im not, said his friend. What line is that? You know the one, he said. Havent you ever heard, Putting is such sweet sorrow?

Friday, June 20, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 22~ Friday, June 20, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest. Sri Chinmoy Becoming non-judgmental is the best gift we can give friends, family, and especially ourselves. We need to accept people for whom and what they are. Instead of trying to change them, maybe we should think first about changing ourselves. Its not an easy thing to do but worth reducing this way of thinking. We judge ourselves unfairly as well. If were not good to ourselves, we certainly cant expect others to be. Judging is an easy thing to do, a very human thing. We all do it, many times unintentionally. In letting go of judgment, you shed discrimination and prejudice. Be easy on yourself; enjoy yourself.Master the PossibilitiesMaster the Possibilities finishes a very successful June next week. Two dozen programs are scheduled to start and they would love to see you in them. Although not next week, Monday, June 30 will have a very special offering.

We hope to find someone who loves to sing, as much as this group does, and is enthusiastic about planning for the concert and meeting each Tuesday morning with the members, beginning in September. So we hope everyone will consider their many musical contacts in the neighborhood, at church or in any other organized group to see if there is someone with this talent for directing a chorus of singers and let them know that we are interested. Anyone qualified to direct our chorus should contact Linda Hein, Search Committee Chair, at 861-9880 or Joan Stenson, President, at 873-0304.

Ground breaking for the field took place on Tuesday, June 10 with many residents and softball players for the occasion. Bob Foisey from the Sales Office was on hand for the ground breaking ceremony. The new field will have many wonderful features. There will be covered 30-foot dugouts with overhead fans, an electronic scoreboard, two sets of bleachers for fans. It will house a concession stand with grill, popcorn machine and nacho machine. Now, I would have loved that equipment when I worked at the concession stand at Ursinus College where my son played baseball during his college days. The field with be a regulation 300 feet to the outfield fences and it will have irrigated Bermuda grass outfield with a clay infield and warning track. It will also have golf cart parking adjacent to the field. The field will be located near the outdoor Pavilion. The softball team is excited about the field and the residents will be able to watch games. Here is to September and the opening of the field. George Kaufman said the first game may be an interesting one as there is rumor that the sales team wants to play the softball team. Another beautiful amenity becomes a reality in the next few months at the Stone Creek Community. I would like to thank Kim Krystopa, Lifestyle Director, for taking pictures for me. Lets play ball!

Monday, July 7, is a great day for sharing with others in this celebration of remembrance and the future. Donating a pint of your blood to help those hurt and sick and hoping for new blood to replace that lost in illness or accident or bringing in new life to the world. Donating a pint of your blood every eight weeks is very healthy for you and very helpful to those who need your blood. To help you, and others, the Life South Bloodmobile will be stationed in the front parking lot of On Top Of the Worlds Health and Recreation Building from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Monday, July 7, to assist you in helping those in need of your pint of blood. Regulars know the easy-to-follow procedures: Drop in, bring an ID card, answer a few questions, take a seat, roll up a sleeve, smile at the friendly, specially trained technician, enjoy a beverage as your donation is delivered, get up and leave with a sweet treat, a special prize, and a really great feeling of being a hero! Thats right your pint donation can save three others. Some people who will be having surgery in the future donate to stockpile the blood they will receive during and/or after surgery. Just tell the tech who takes your blood.) Join us in the Life South Bloodmobile on July 7. Celebrate the feeling of a new independence! The fantastic group of 25 Life South donors from our May 5 include these heroes: Kathleen Becker, Catherine Bennett, Donnamarie Castellano, Esther Cohen, Richard Copeland, Susan Copeland, Lynn Dowd, Kathleen Dushary, Ray Governatori, James Hacker, Aaron Hertz, Barbara Ippolito, Lila King, Diane Knox, Barbara Kratz, William Kreppel, Nancy Ludvik, Mary Melzer, Robert Melzer, Marguerite Piotrowski, Norman Reckner, Lois Reisinger, Howard Rutkowski, Paul Wagnitz, and Emma Wanamaker.To reach me, please call 352-237-9208 or e-mail me at jroberta@cfl.rr.com.

Hes a celebrated painter, an enthusiastic fly-fisherman, and a lover of poetry and nature. But give him the proper provocation and a rage, a red blindness, drives him to violence. Early in the novel we learn that hes already spent prison time for beating a man in a bar who made inappropriate remarks about Stegners teenage daughter. This man survived. Dellwood Siminoe was not as lucky. When Jim came upon him beating an intractable horse, the situation ignited his red blindness. Dellwood was later found dead in a Colorado stream. Though Dellwood was a rotten dude and a known poacher the town wouldnt mourn, Grant Siminoe is a vengeful pursuer of justice for his kid brother. The spine-chilling danger hanging over Stegner is set against stunning landscapes of Colorado and New Mexico. And the more violent Jim becomes the more intricate his paintings become, objects both delicate and manic. Along the way readers enter the head of a brilliant artist. Slowly, the reasons why this successful mans life is spiraling out of control evolve. High on the list is his daughters death in a drug deal gone bad. Shortly before she died shed reached out to him and hed pulled away. His wife leaves him; he develops a drinking problem. Ungovernable rage impels him to murder two men. Then, curiously, he starts to feel a kinship with his dead victims. He remembers hearing that in our dreams we are all the characters. But the thought that he was somehow like those men makes him gasp. He asks himself, When you kill do you also conjoin somehow? In some horrible communion you will never shake? Is that why soldiers come home and scream at night and kill themselves? Because they have become their targets? Ultimately, there is redemption and a turning to prayer: Forgive me. Forgive me everything. I want to love all things. I dont know how. I dont know how. Please help me. This is a haunting novel.

James was the first speaker, and emphasized what the board has accomplished. He said that the county has had to deal with unfunded mandates, and commented, You cant control how much money we will have. He said that in the past he has enabled folks to come together. Wilson, active in the Tea Party, said his work with that organization is one of the things that prepared him for leadership. He said he loves the kids, and we must prepare them to be successful. He said the schools do not have a revenue problem, they have a spending problem. He said that he wants more choice for parents, and that the schools should pay the best teachers well. He added he wants to bring back morals by getting God back in the schools. Moerlie came to the U.S. from Suriname, and said she became a citizen by choice. I feel a great indebtedness to this country. She said that recent FCAT scores speak for themselves, and added, My goal is to provide each individual child with an opportunity. Touchton hit on several issues, but as a teacher perhaps made the best point when he said, My textbooks are older than my kids. He said that teachers should be held accountable. He also wants parents to take part in the process. There are parents who dont think the school system wants them involved. He echoed a previous theme when he said, Part of the problem is money. Its not necessarily that there isnt enough, its just not being used wisely. As the discussion moved to District 4, incumbent Boynton led off. She got out in front of some issues she had regarding her actions at a meeting, and said, It was a terrifying time for me. She said she decided to run again because of the needs of students and teachers. She said during a visit to Tallahassee that she found Gov. Rick Scott did not know of the unfunded mandates. She noted that the budget comes from the superintendent, and that she would work with the superintendent and staff. She said she also wants corporal punishment eliminated. Schrier took the floor and said, Our technology has to equal whats happening in the world. She said she was born in Minnesota and grew up on Long Island. There were times when we had to do with very little money. She wants to work on the dropout rate, getting it to decrease. She also noted that there are a lot of very good things in our community. Bevan said she has been teaching for 21 years. She said the schools havent got enough money, and commented on the lack of social workers and psychologists. These are the things we need. She also said there are some awesome teachers doing fantastic things in the school system. But she pointed out that there are teachers with 28 students and no aides. Were going to change this district upside down, she said. Basinger, who is known by his middle name of Chase, is a music director at Central Baptist Church, and said because of his job hes required to send his children to Ocala Christian Academy. Public schools cry out of parents to be involved, he said. He added that teachers are crying out for money. He said he has a background in business. The next Coalition meeting will be the second Monday in July, the 13th. Crawford and King are being invited, and also featured will be County Commission candidates and judicial candidates. Meetings are held at TimberRidge, Building 5000, Suite 5001.

BRIEFS Peace rally set for this Saturday in downtown OcalaPeace and antiwar groups throughout the country are calling for protests against renewed military intervention in Iraq. Locally activists will gather from 10 a.m. to noon this Saturday on the north side of Silver Springs Boulevard across from the farmers market adjacent to the Town Square to demand that the United States not intervene in Iraq.Deputies arrest woman riding in pickup truck for drugs, warrantsA woman riding in a pickup truck on State Road 200 was arrested on active warrants and on drug charges after the driver was stopped for not wearing a seat belt. According to a report from the Marion County Sheriffs Office, Anna Fillingane was arrested on the warrants, but a search revealed a silver spoon with a white powder substance on it, six needles, one containing blood, and three promethazine pills. Also located was a small marijuana cigarette. Fillinigane was charged with four drug counts, with bond at $500 for each misdemeanor, but also with two felony violation of probation counts, with no bond on each. Fillingane, 27, has an arrest record going back nearly seven years, for larceny, petit theft and drugs, and violation of probation warrants. In another case, the Sheriffs Office is investigating a break-in at a Bahia Oaks home on Southwest 61st Place. Various electronic items were chosen while the homeowner was away on an overnight vacation. He returned and found his door damaged.

BY JIM CLARK EditorThe political forum season kicked into high gear last week with School Board candidates appearing before the State Road 200 Coalition. Several of the candidates for the School Board appeared. The non-partisan School Board races are on the primary ballot on Aug. 26. If no candidate in a certain race gets 50 percent plus one vote, the top two in that race will face a runoff in the November general election. Two of the races feature crowded fields. In District 3, Bobby James is the incumbent, and he is being challenged by Ed Wilson, James Hoyne, Jane Moerlie and Jim Touchton. Hoyne did not attend the meeting. The list could change this week as qualifying ends at noon today (Friday). As of Wednesday morning, only James and Wilson had qualified. In District 4, Angie Boynton is the incumbent. She faces challenges from Diane Lynn Schrier, Jamie L. Bevan and Michael Chase Basinger. As of Wednesday morning, all but Basinger had qualified. District 5, as of this writing, has just two participants, incumbent Ron Crawford and challenger Kelly King. Both have qualified. Neither was at the meeting. School hopefuls speak at Coalition PLEASESEESCHOOLS, PAGE3 Marion County Fire Rescue (MCFR) and On Top of the World (OTOW) fitness professionals have partnered to present residents with the Big Balance Theory program, which aims to combat the growing number of fall-related trauma emergencies. Balance Theory program not only provides residents who are at risk of incurring a fall-related injury with information, but shows them how to improve their strength, balance and confidence through exercises that can be done at home. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than onethird of people aged 65 and older fall each year, racking up more than $2 billion in medical costs. The trend is mirrored locally. During the 2011-2012 fiscal year, fall-related incidents accounted for 52 percent of the 11,093 trauma injury calls to which MCFR responded. The following year (the 2012-2013 fiscal year) fall-related incidents accounted for 47 percent (3,974) of the trauma injury calls to which MCFR responded. MCFR and OTOW hope to change this trend. On June 24 the agencies will kick off the countywide Big Balance Theory fall-prevention campaign at the Marion Oaks Community Center (Annex Building, 280 Marion Oaks Lane, Ocala).
