With the recent lightning strikes affecting residents across the nation, the nonprofit Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH) offers the following tips to help families reduce their risk of lightning injuries and protect their home. Protect Your Family Stay alert and listen carefully for the first signs of lightning or thunder. Remember, If Thunder Roars, Go Indoors. Seek shelter. Lightning often hits before the rain begins, so dont wait for the rain to start before leaving. If outdoors Avoid water, high ground and open spaces. Stay away from metal objects including wires, fences and motors. Find shelter in a sizable building or in a fully enclosed metal vehicle. Completely close the windows and dont lean on the doors. Do not get under a small canopy, small picnic shelter, or stand near trees. If you cannot take shelter indoors, crouch down with your feet together and place your hands over your ears to minimize hearing damage from the thunder. Stay at least 15 feet away from other people. If indoors Avoid water and stay away from Lightning in area? Here are some safety tips PLEASESEELIGHTNING, PAGE3 One more time, sales tax effort diesA last-minute proposal put forth by County Commissioner Earl Arnett to put a half-percent sales tax on the November ballot ran afoul of election deadlines, and the twoyear proposal died without a vote on Wednesday at the County Commission meeting. Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox spoke and reiterated that the proposed ordinance had to be submitted by 9 a.m. on Aug. 27, the day after the primary. The proposed ordinance called for a public hearing on Sept. 2. It appears the one mill property tax for schools will be the only levy on the ballot. 000J2L0

downtown Sprint building offers just that. Living downtown would provide grocery stores and two worldclass medical facilities only a short drive away. Much shorter than what most of the residents in Marion County already experience. As for parking, does Mr. Clark really think the city building department is going to approve a development plan that doesnt provide ample parking for their residents? I highly doubt it... If you want to see a revitalized downtown, head up to Atlanta one weekend. Several areas in and around downtown have become the Mecca for both young professionals and young families alike. If you want a closer example, try Winter Garden or Dunedin. The City of Denver, Colorado and even Beaufort, South Carolina have had success revitalizing their downtown. These are a few examples of success stories that offer a great quality of life within walking distance from a residents doorstep. With the City of Ocala and Marion County quickly emerging as a technology hot spot, creating the type of atmosphere and quality of life to lure in these young professionals is key. The City of Ocala has done an excellent job at repositioning and revitalizing their downtown. The Ocala Theater, Tuscawilla Park, recently renovated downtown square and Citizens Circle, the soon to be renovated City Auditorium and the future linear park is helping attract those young professionals to live and work right here in Marion County. Andrew Jorgensen Southwest OcalaNo gun, no smokeGuess who resolved the mystery of the Benghazi Smoking Gun yes, the Republicans, they found no gun and no smoke, Last week the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee Report completely contradicts the false claims and criticisims by Fox News in conjunction with the Republican Party regarding the Binghazi Coverup. (Read the Report). The eight Benghazi investigations have cost the American taxpayers $14 million and produced no evidence of any wrongdoing by the Obama adminstration. In addition to those eight investigations, the Republican controlled house just approved another $3.5 million for an additional investigation by Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy. This presents Speaker John Boehner with a tough decision to make, He can accept the findings of a responsible Republican committee, or allow the Trey Gowdy kangaroo court to proceed.

NORTHCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Read the classifieds Books that Shaped America SeriesOn Aug. 12 from 1-2:30, Lectures 19, 20, and 21 were shown at Live Oak Hall. The first lecture The Catcher in the Rye by Jerome David Salinger was discussed. It was a 1951 Book of the Month Club book. Salinger was one of the leading writers of his generation. He was a nonconformist. In J.D. Salingers brilliant coming-of-age novel, Holden Caulfield, a 17-year-old prep school adolescent relates his lonely, life-changing 24-hour stay in New York City as he experiences the phoniness of the adult world while attempting to deal with the death of his younger brother, an overwhelming compulsion to lie and troubling sexual experiences. To Kill a Mockingbird (1960) by Harper Lee is about racial injustice and southern discrimination. Gender roles in the Deep South were also addressed in the book. It won the Pulitzer Prize. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller was published in 1961. The phrase catch-22 has entered the English language. It refers to an unsolvable logic puzzle. Examples You lose your glasses but you cant see to look for them. If you lock your keys in your car, you cant unlock the car to get them. Great American Bestsellers: Books that Shaped America The last three lectures of this series were shown at Live Oak Hall on Aug. 15. Lecture 22, The Woman Warrior: Memoir of a Girlhood among Ghosts by Maxine Hong Kingston contains five essays. It discusses her struggles between the past and present. She blends autobiography with old Chinese folktales. Lecture 23 was a discussion of the book, John Adams by David McCullough. It is considered the best biography of our second president. Adams was ahead of his time. He owned no slaves and was against slavery. Adams wrote the Massachusetts Constitution which is still in use today. Lecture 24 Recent Bestsellers Danielle Steele wrote more than 75 books. She had three bestsellers in one year. All of Stephen Kings books have been worldwide bestsellers. John Grishams books are all page turners and very successful. One of his books, The Firm, spent 47 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list and became the bestselling novel of 1991.Sail Away Cruise ClubWelcome aboard.

Do not use landline telephone or headsets. Cell phones are safe. Turn off, unplug and stay away from appliances, computers, power tools, and televisions sets as lightning may strike exterior electric and phone lines inducing shocks to equipment inside. After the storm Do not resume outdoor activities until at least 30 minutes after the last lightning strike or thunderclap. Call 911 immediately if anyone is injured and use first aid procedures. Lightning victims do not carry an electrical charge, so it is safe to administer medical treatment. Protect your home Surge protective devices: These systems protect electronic and electrical appliances from all but the most severe electrical surges or direct strikes. They should be installed at all items to be protected. A good electrical grounding system is essential. Whole house surge protection: A whole house surge protection system can be installed on the electric meter or the electrical panel to help protect the appliances and electronic equipment in your house such as computers, TVs and DVD players. Contact your local electric company for installation information. If your utility company doesnt offer the service, a qualified electrician can install this device at your electrical panel. Lightning protection systems These systems provide a direct path for lightning to follow to the ground rather than through the home structure and its wiring. Consult a qualified contractor (UL-listed/LPIcertified or qualified electrician) for installation. For information on protecting your family and home from severe weather, visit FLASH.

LIGHTNINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Monday marks the start of the U.S. Open Tennis Champion in Flushing Meadows, NY. Today were serving some stories down Pun Alley to you to see whether they get over the net to you.Mind over matter?A retiree had to get more exercise, by his doctors orders, so he decided to play tennis. After a couple of weeks his wife asked him how hes doing. Its going fine, the husband said. When Im on the court and I see the ball speeding towards me, my brain immediately says, To the corner! Back hand! To the net! Smash! Go back! Really? What happens then? the wife asked. Then my body says, Who? Me? You must be kidding!ProfessionalThe tennis pro was a curious one. Every time he missed a shot, he stopped and shouted, Fanity! Fanity! Lester and Albert were playing on the next court. What is he doing? Lester asked. Dont you recognize pro-fanity when you hear it? Sounds familiarHeard about the new tennis racket? one pro asked another. No. What about it? If theres a bad call, it flies off the handle. FaultsTennis is a game in which love often comes up. But try telling that to your opponent. Selling broken tennis racket for $50: No strings attached. He played tennis in the daytime and was a waiter in the evening. He was great at serving. When the first indoor tennis court was finished, the builder made a good net profit. I spilled spot remover on my dog. Now hes gone. Then there was the tennis player who went to the doctor because he heard music whenever he played. The physician cured him by removing his headband. The first tennis game was when Moses served in Pharaohs court. Toms wife always hits the ball into the net on her first serve. She doesnt want to get cheated out of a second shot. A professional tennis players income is his net earnings.Dental awarenessMrs. Jones was one of those women with a natural curiosity. How is it, she asked the dentist one day, that the little hole in my tooth feels so big to my tongue? Well, said the dentist, you know how a womans tongue exaggerates.

cially liberal, fiscally conservative and believe in a strong military. There was one Democrat that fit that mold. Joe Lieberman and he ended up an Independent. There are several Republicans that seem to be there. Well see. Bill Riola Oak RunObstructionist?Help! It seems I no longer know the meaning of common words. What does the word obstructionist mean? I am watching the happenings in D.C. The house submits bills after bills (about 300) that are tabled by Harry Reid. Yet, I must listen to people tell me the house is the obstructionist. I thought the one who did the obstructing was the obstructionist. Where am I going wrong? Why is the Congress the boogie man, when the president states on TV, for all to see, that he will veto bills that come to his desk. He has that famous pen. That sounds pretty ominous, negative, and obstructionist to me. One side is offering the other is rejecting, who is the obstructionist? I think, maybe, I need a new dictionary. Where does one buy a liberal dictionary? My comprehension seems to be woefully lacking. D.I. Larson OcalaBack the president?This responds to a letter-writer in the Aug. 15 South Marion Citizen. He doesnt like some of our elected officials and media criticizing President Obama, and calls for us to unite behind the president. He says he cant remember a president so vilified in recent history. Ten years ago, when we were fighting two wars, President Bush was beaten and flayed daily by the writers pals in the media and Congress. Did he call for national unity then? Further back, President Johnson was criticized from all fronts during the Vietnam War (LBJ, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?). And President Truman got the same during the Korean War (To err is Truman.). There was relatively little protest during WWI, because President Wilson got Congress to pass a sedition act making it a federal crime to publicly oppose our involvement in that war. He says we are at war in Iraq and Afghanistan. I thought President Obama pulled our troops out of Iraq a few years ago. Obama created the current mess in Iraq by ignoring the lessons of history. He rejected his military advisors recommendation that he keep a residual force in Iraq. When the Korean War ended, we kept (and still keep) a residual force there, and South Korea is still free. After the Vietnam War, we didnt, and a few years later it went Communist. Patricia Shumard Oak RunMedia flames the fireIt is our American right to peacefully protest when we believe an injustice has been done. This right isnt reserved for any race or section of the country. What isnt anyones right is to destroy and loot anothers property! It certainly isnt right to make death threats against an individual, and it is idiotic to give out his name given these death threats. Unfortunately, we have a segment of our society that uses tragedies as their excuse to participate in violent demonstrations, destroying and looting innocent peoples property. They are so brazen in these acts that they could care less if their actions are being filmed, because they know they wont have to pay for these crimes. This latest incident in St. Louis isnt the first and it surely wont be the last until this type behavior is no longer tolerated anywhere in America, certainly not excused. Stopping these outrageous riots will be impossible until the media stops blaming the police force for reacting to the violence by using tear gas, etc. to break up the riots, despite the fact they are being targeted with violence by the demonstrators. They excuse the violent rioting while making the police officers the bad guys, although they know police wouldnt act that way to peaceful demonstrations. Hardly anything is said by the media about this violence and looting and how the offenders should be put behind bars. The media cant resist making such incidents appear all about race in their attempt to justify this behavior, as it first was with Zimmerman, even making a point as to the percent of white policemen vs. the black population. If we ever want to get rid of racism, the media must quit making reference to it every chance they get. If anything, they should question why the white population chooses to move out of these neighborhoods and try to correct the problem. The saddest thing in this whole situation is that we dont even have the complete and verifiable facts as to what happened to cause this incident. It may be found that the officer was totally within his rights to protect himself from attack by taking the actions he did, which unfortunately led to the death of a teenager. This is a possibility. Something has gone wrong when anyone, young or old, thinks it is ok to challenge/attack a law enforcement officer. Things havent changed that much. If the facts do determine that officer wasnt in the wrong, does that mean we will face more riots? Dont be surprised if we do. Too many are not interested in Justice, they simply want revenge. Wayne Rackley OcalaDowntown livingI feel Mr. Clark is out of touch with the younger generations. These younger generations want to be close to the action and dont have the time or want the additional responsibilities that come with maintaining a house in the suburbs of Ocala. They want to be close to the action with quality entertainment and a good nightlife, and they want it within walking distance of where they live. The redevelopment of the old Doctors adviceOne doctor phoned another. Forget the game we had planned for today. Why? asked the other. Mr. Jones just left here, and from the shape his joints are in, its going to rain for sure. More doctors adviceThe best advice I can give you for your elbow, said the doctor, is to give up tennis. Aw, doc, said the tennis fanatic; I just dont deserve the best. Whats second best? Still more doctors adviceWhen Benson started losing every game in his weekly match, he went to see a psychiatrist. After listening to him, the analyst said, Your problem, my friend, is that you worry too much about the game. A few weeks ago, a man came in complaining about the same thing. I told him to relax, and as soon as he did his game improved. I know, said Benson. Hes my opponent. Doctors excuseIt was Saturday morning, and Dr. Klein had reluctantly agreed to spend it with his wife. The phone rang just as they were about to go shopping. It was Kleins colleague, Dr. Herman. Listen, said Herman, Im with Dr. Xavier and Dr. Lao. We need a fourth for doubles. Can you make it? Hmm, said Klein. Uh-huh, yes, I see. Ill be right over. He hung up and grabbed his medical kit. Sorry, dear, he said, but Ive got to go. Is it serious? Ill say it is. Why, there are three doctors there already. A night at the barAt 3 a.m. a desk clerk at a hotel got a call from a drunk guy asking what time the bar opens. It opens at noon, answered the clerk. About an hour later he got a call from the same guy, sounding even drunker. What time does the bar open? he asked. Same time as before, noon, replied the clerk. Another hour passed and he called again, plastered, Whatjoo shay the bar opins at? The clerk then answered, It opens at noon, but if you cant wait, I can have room service send something up to you. No, I dont wanna git in. Ah wanna git out!

Some volunteer their time to others less fortunate. Others prefer playing golf, bingo, going to MTP classes, or travelling. The main thing is to be happy regardless of what happens. We need to enjoy and learn from our experiences. By this age, we should have learned how to be present to lifes events in a state of peace. Regardless of what happens, we need to accept the situation. Resisting what is not to our liking only adds stress to the event. Lets just enjoy the experience of life.Line DanceJanice here.

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 32~ Friday, August 22, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Well here it is August already. Its been a pleasant but hot summer so far, just what we expect in Florida. The grass sure has to be cut more often with the summer rains. Enjoy it for now. The holidays will be here before we know it.Feature of the monthI have chosen the Spruce Creek Quilters as feature of the month. They have been active since 2005 and are still going strong. The project they are working on are Friendship quilts. Each member creates a special square of their own and this square is put in a quilt for the other members until everyone has their own Friendship quilt. They meet every Friday (all summer long too) from noon to 2 p.m. These ladies work very hard on all their projects plus they get a chance to socialize. Come join this group and learn to quilt.New England Pot LuckI am sure by now you know SCNs first event will be the New England Pot Luck on Labor Day, Sept. 1. Sign up sheets will be at the clubhouse. Like I said before, if you dont know what a New England Pot Luck is just ask your friends from Maine, they will tell you. Its too bad no one wants to organize the monthly pancake breakfasts. It is truly missed by a lot of people.ArkansasI happened to meet a man who said he just came back from Arkansas and had a wonderful time. He also said it was warm there but not humid. Well I never said anything to him but we spent 13 years in Arkansas and the summers are brutal with heat and humidity, temperatures staying at 100 for over 10 days straight. Also the winters are very cold and icy. Its a beautiful state but we decided Florida had the best of everything plus we dont have to shovel the heat!RulesWe all hope everyone including the real estates realize that in Spruce Creek North (like most of the communities) we have restrictions. This is a 55 plus community which means that one person in the home has to be the age of 55 in order to buy or rent in SCN. Also no children under the age of 18 are to Quilters work on project as they continue their work Jan Liberio Spruce Creek North Pictured from left to right are Zona Doane, Peg Gallagher, Delores Pecor, Sandy Barsky, Harriet, and Stella Kerosetz.

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 31 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, August 22, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Deputy Superintendent Rick Lankford, who oversees curriculum and instruction for Marion County Public Schools, will retire next month after 38 years of service with the district. Superintendent George Tomyn has appointed Lisa Krysalka to replace Lankford. Krysalka, herself a 31-year veteran of the district, is the executive director of Human Resources. In her new role, she will oversee all student curriculum and instructional practices for teachers. The position is considered second to the superintendent and often involves budgeting, negotiations, staffing plans, student assignments, and other key academic responsibilities. Krysalka started with MCPS as a teacher at Stanton-Weirsdale Elementary in 1983. She also taught at South Ocala Elementary and Lake Weir Middle. In 1994, she became assistant principal at Belleview Middle. Eleven years later, she became principal at that same school and then moved to the district office in 2012 to her current position. Krysalkas degrees include a bachelor of science in elementary education from Southern Illinois University and a masters in educational leadership from the University of Florida. Jaycee Oliver, a 22-year district employee, replaces Krysalka. Oliver supervises the Employment Services division and will maintain these responsibilities while moving into the executive director of Human Resources position. Olivers background includes teaching at Dr. NH Jones, serving as assistant principal at Dr. NH Jones and Belleview-Santos Elementary schools, and serving as principal at Emerald Shores Elementary and Madison Street Academy. Lankford started with the district in 1975 as a teacher at Lake Weir High. He left the district briefly but came back in 1978 as a math and science teacher at the same school. In 1994, Lankford became assistant principal at Shady Hill Elementary. Later that same year, he was appointed assistant principal at Forest High. Eleven years later in 2005, Lankford became principal at Forest and moved in 2007 to become principal at Vanguard High. Two years ago, he moved to the district office to his current position. Lankfords academic background includes an associates degree from Valencia Community College, a bachelors degree in physical education from the University of Central Florida, and a masters in educational leadership from NOVA University.

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 22, 2014 BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Special to the CitizenLauren Bacall died last week at age 89. Her obituaries are paying tribute to a glamorous actress, a famed star from Hollywoods Golden Age, the wife of Humphrey Bogart, and a lifetime liberal. Shes also being celebrated by liberals as a fighter for freedom in the arts, one who bravely confronted McCarthyism and ruthless anti-communist witch hunters in Washington. Sorry, but reality is more complicated. The facts are that Lauren Bacall herself learned the truth about communism in Hollywood. She admitted to being badly duped by bad guys. She learned her lesson, even as her fellow Hollywood liberals to this day have not, opting instead for a false narrative that feeds a handy caricature. Heres what really happened: In October 1947, Lauren Bacall joined a group of high-profile Hollywood actors, writers, and producers for a major public-relations trip to Washington. Their goal was to defend the First Amendment freedoms of their accused friends and colleaguesaccused, that is, of being communists dedicated to infiltrating the motion-picture industry as a means to peddle propaganda. The accused were summoned before the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities as unfriendly witnesses. (For the record, Senator Joe McCarthy had absolutely nothing to do with this.) Unbeknownst to Lauren Bacall and friends, nearly every single one of the accused was a closet communist formally pledged to Stalins Soviet Union. When these individuals joined Communist Party USA (CPUSA), they swore a loyalty oath to strive to ensure the triumph of Soviet power in the United States. They were committed to what CPUSA general secretary William Z. Foster openly called a Soviet America, or what other hope-filled comrades called a United Soviet States of America (USSA). Of course, these communists didnt dare tell any of this to their liberal/progressive friends. They assured their pals that they were good liberals/progressives just like them. They would never support a totalitarian dictatorship. They insisted that they were being unjustly hounded and persecuted and silenced. This was an outrage, they said, a violation of their First Amendment/Constitutional freedoms (none of which existed in the Soviet Union). And thus, they needed the help of their friends. Would these fellow Hollywood liberals/progressives lend a hand? Would they come to Washington to support them? The liberals were more than game. After consulting with the unfriendlies, they created a group called the Committee for the First Amendment. It was a classic name for a communist front, one that made communists smile at their cleverness, especially when they were easily duping fellow leftists. The liberal stars they enlisted ran into the hundreds, with big names like Katherine Hepburn, Henry Fonda, Gregory Peck, Myrna Loy, Paulette Goddard. A group of roughly two dozen lent more than their signatures; they actually set sail for Washington: Danny Kaye, Ira Gershwin, Judy Garland, John Garfield, Sterling Hayden, Gene Kelly, Burt Lancaster, John Huston, Philip Dunne, Billy Wilder, and Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogart and Bacall topped the list, as they would any blockbuster movie. Before we left Hollywood, said Bogart later, we carefully screened every performer so that no red or pink could infiltrate and sabotage our purpose. The streetwise Bogie prided himself in his ability not to be tricked. As one First Amendment crusader put it, Bogart feels that hes the most politically sophisticated guy in our business. The tough-talking Bogie seemed a most unlikely character to be duped. Neither he nor his girl, Lauren Bacall, would be anyones sucker. The crew from the Committee for the First Amendment boarded a plane bearing the name (no kidding) Red Star, which immediately What Im about to say will anger some longtime Florida Gator fans. But then, wheres the fun in life if you cant upset Gator fans? I am sick and tired of reading about, viewing, hearing about the Florida Gators football team, which is what has happened around here all summer. How many days until the first game? Whats the offensive line going to look like? What do the recruits for the 2015 season look like (we havent played 2014 yet)? Lets interview the coach and see if he thinks hes on the hot seat, etc., etc., etc. Its enough to drive a baseball fan mad. Heck, we were even getting football stories when the Gator softball team was winning a national championship. Id like to throw some numbers your way. Consider these. In 1970, the population of Marion County was about 70,000. As you can see, in the past 44 years weve had quite a boom around here. Lets say for the sake of argument that all 70,000 of those people were Gator football fans. Thats highly unlikely, but Ill give you the benefit of the doubt. Today, the population of Marion County is estimated at 337,000. Its safe to say that of those 267,000 people who grew this county since 1970, most of them came from somewhere else. Now, if those original 70,000 people are still around, and all of them are still Gator fans, they make up only about 20 percent of the population. To give you the benefit of the doubt again, well say that 100,000 people in Marion County (I doubt its that high) are Gator fans today. Thats just under 30 percent. So even with the most generous of estimates, 70 percent of the people who live in Marion County do not cheer for the Gators. Thats about 237,000 people in Marion County who really root for somebody else, if they care about college football at all. Remember, at least 267,000 of those people probably came from someplace else. They bring their sports allegiances with them. I was brought up in the New York area as part of the Subway Alumni and cheering for Notre Dame, something that continues to this day. Last week on a local road, I was behind a car with an Iowa State decal in the back window. There are Michigan fans, Ohio State fans, Penn State fans, Tennessee fans and, perish the thought, Alabama fans all throughout our fair county. So when I turn on the TV news, Ill probably turn it off when they come to what they generously call sports. Ill start following college football the day after the baseball season ends. Do you think the Tampa Bay Rays have enough left in the tank to make a run at an American League wild card spot despite trading David Price? Its coming down to crunch time between now and Oct. 1, and while college football teams are playing cupcake opponents (such as Florida vs. Rice), baseball will be deciding postseason lineups.

Classes for public school students began on Monday. Some private schools, including big ones such as Trinity Catholic High School and Blessed Trinity Elementary School, started earlier. Therefore, its time to review some of the most misunderstood traffic rules on the books in Florida. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. So please, know the law and keep the children who are using the school buses safe. You can also save yourself some time and money in the process. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY School buses on the road again Logic shows number of UF fans falling Bogie and Bacall, and Hollywoods Communists READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEEBACALL PAGE9 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR No respect?The basic question is why doesnt the president get any respect. To begin with he (and his backers) refuse to see any view other than their own. Second they change the rhetoric to fit the mood of the day. On the latter three years ago Mr. Obama took a victory lap on how he, as promised, extricated us from Iraq. Now that that country has imploded he says not to blame him for leaving as he had no choice because the Iraq government would not grant our troops immunity. Which is it? Then there is the antiObama, do nothing Republicans. From what I understand the House has sent upward of 300 bills to the Senate. They sit on Harry Reids desk. I assume they must be valid bills or else they would make it to the Senate floor where the Democrats would vote them down. Why else would they not reach the floor? Of course it could be the presidents forum, if you pass a bill I dont like, I will veto it!!! So why waste time. For five years over 300 Democrats in the House and Senate agreed with everything the president said and did. Not a single individual idea came from those bodies. Unity? Obedience? Fear? To be successful in life you have to see the other point of view it is based on lifes realities as that other person sees it, and it is real. As I told a self professed anti-war Democrat recently. If 99 percent of the world were against war, that leaves 70 million who favor it. (His expression was priceless) Republicans know this reality. Democrats wish it werent so.

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, August 22, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Despite your Aries penchant for wanting to tackle a problem head-on, you might want to take a little more time to see how a current situation develops.

Asking questions and checking it out now could pay off in a big way later on. raised suspicions among the liberals, including Bacall, though apparently not enough to stop the voyage. Coincidence or design? Lauren Bacall wrote later. What happened on the road from California to Washington is fascinating political theater. It would make a terrific movie, if someone in modern Hollywood dared to portray it accurately. In my 2010 book, Dupes, I lay it out at length, including the breathtakingly nave statements along the way from the likes of Judy Garland, Danny Kaye, Gene Kelly, John Garfield, and so many other Hollywood Golden Agers whose movies I love. Their statements were seized by the likes of the Daily Worker, which turned them into giant headlines. The liberals/progressives, mouthing the talking points of the closet communists, were vicious toward the House committee. They literally compared the congressmen to Nazis, stormtroopers, Goebbels, Hitler, the Spanish Inquisition, and on and on. The four major Hollywood writers called to testifyDalton Trumbo, Albert Maltz, Alvah Bessie, and John Howard Lawson (a.k.a., Hollywoods Commissar)were especially belligerent. Alas, to make a long story short, the liberals/progressives were stunned, dumbfounded, shocked beyond belief, and deeply betrayed when they got to Washington and found that the accused communists were undeniably and unmistakably just that: communists. Congress, both Republicans and Democrats alike, openly presented mountains of evidence: registration rolls, news clips, Daily Worker articles, New Masses bylines, front-group memberships, party applications, forms, cards, checks, cash, and even numbers. The world quickly learned some crucial facts. To wit: Dalton Trumbo, Communist Party registration card, no. 47187, code no. Dalt T. A total of 39 citations with communist or communist-front affiliations. Albert Maltz, Communist Party registration card, no. 47196. A total of 58 citations with communist or communist-front affiliations. Alvah Bessie, Communist Party registration card, no. 46836. A total of 32 citations with communist or communist-front affiliations. John Howard Lawson, Communist Party registration card, no. 47275. As for Lawson, he was a one-man communist-front. Congressional investigators presented the May 18, 1934 Daily Worker identifying Lawson as no less than one of its own correspondents; a November 1946 issue of Masses & Mainstream listing Lawson as a member of its editorial board (along with Alvah Bessie and Dalton Tumbo); and the awful fact that Lawson (who was Jewish) was a sponsor of the odious American Peace Mobilization, which from 1940-41 had accommodated Hitler because of Hitlers alliance with Stalin. It was one of the most insidious communist fronts. Joining Lawson in the front were Albert Maltz, Budd Schulberg, Herbert Biberman, Dashiell Hammett, Lillian Hellman, Artie Shaw, and Will Geer. The evidence was undeniableand only made the likes of Lawson, Trumbo, Maltz, and Bessie even angrier. Lawson was fuming. He had to be escorted out of the hearing room as he screamed at the House committee: Hitlers Germany!... Hitler tactics! All of which brings me back to Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogart, much like his Hollywood persona, was a mercurial fellow. You didnt backstab Bogie. Already a loose fuse, he grew redder and redder as the facts on Hollywoods communists rolled in, and then he detonated. You [expletive, plural] sold me out! he yelled at Danny Kaye. Unbelievable as it may seem, Lauren Bacall later said that as she and Bogie and the others flew to Washington, they did not know that most of the unfriendlies called to testify were secretly members of the Communist Party. We didnt realize until much later, she admitted, that we were being used to some degree by the Unfriendly Ten. She conceded that they had been foolishly nave, headstrong, emotional, and that they had hastily strolled into something we knew nothing about. Most members of the Committee for the First Amendment felt that way. The group fell silent, withered, and died. Thats the history. The villains were the communists who lied to and exploited their liberal friends. The communists had hung the liberals out to dry, tarnishing their reputations with the movie-going public. Liberals like the wonderful lyricist Ira Gershwin now appeared before the California legislature to explain how he could be so oblivious as to host meetings for a communist front at his home. All the liberals endeavored to explain themselves. Bogart, too, looked to repair the damage. He went public with a strong statement explaining why I am not a communist, nor, for that matter, a communist sympathizer. I detest communism just as any decent American does, wrote Bogie. Im about as much in favor of communism as J. Edgar Hoover. He pledged that his name would never again be found on any communist front organization as a sponsor for anything communistic. (For the record, in Dupes, I include a lengthy analysis on whether Bogart had attended a Communist Party training school in New York in 1934, when he was much further to the left than where he was by the end of his life. I found a Bogart on the registration list held in the Soviet Comintern archives on CPUSA. It was a question that I had wanted to ask Lauren Bacall, but never had the chance. Frankly, I doubt she would have been agreeable.)

All over the world, the press took potshots at Bogie: Was Bogarts Face Red? chuckled the headline in Londons News Chronicle. Dont try to fox me again, columnist George Sokolsky warned Bogart in an open letter in the New York Sun. By 1952, Bogart even considered voting Republican.

Lauren Bacall would remain well to the left of her husbandand to the nation, for that matter. But at least in 1947, Bacall and her fellow liberals learned a hard lesson. Yes, she would remain a liberal, but she was chastened by this experience.

I am happy to say that they had more shoofly pie at this conference than I could consume although I did my very best, I assure you. I know that life sometimes has its hard paths and things can become very difficult. That is why we need to have something to really look forward to. The writer to the Hebrews understood this when he wrote, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2).

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, August 22, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ORPHAN TRAIN By Christine Baker Kline Still clinging to the Best Seller list since its 2013 debut, Orphan Train is a Book Club favorite and a perfect blend of fiction and history. It uses a familiar plot technique of moving from past to present with interwoven stories of two women: teenage Penobscot Indian Molly and 91-year-old Niamh (renamed Vivian). Molly is aging out of the Spruce Harbor, Maine foster-care system when shes paired with elderly Vivian who needs help cleaning out her attic. During this public service commitment Molly discovers Vivians past as she sorts through keepsakes in the attic, a past that meant as a young Irish immigrant she was orphaned, put on a train with hundreds of other abandoned children, and sent westward out of New York. Did the religious leaders behind the orphan train that operated between 1854 and 1929 ever consider that poor Midwestern farmers might exploit these homeless children as cheap labor and even abuse them? Well never know. But thats exactly what happened to Vivian in a succession of cruel families before landing in the arms of caring, nurturing people who came to love her genuinely. When Molly meets Vivian, she is living with ghosts: I believe in ghosts. Many times in my life I have felt them around me. I am ninety-one years old, and almost everyone who was once in my life is now a ghost. Gradually, Molly and Vivian discover the parallels in their lives, and a special bond develops between them. Although Mollys story adds a welcome dimension, the fleshed-out, rich history of Vivians life overshadows it. And some of the similarities between the two seem exaggerated a bit. The author does take a few liberties with the facts. In reality, the phrase orphan train did not exist until 1979 when a made-for-TV documentary coined it. Nor did all the children travel by train. Many were driven to neighboring states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania. And, finally, they were not all orphans; many had two parents who either could not or would not care for them. Still, this is a haunting, near flawless novel, with a little-known piece of history a story that will stay with you long after you read the last page. Not orphans, not a train, but near flawless novel Bookmark Pat Wellington Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Cranes Corner Andrew Crane Lately I am hearing about bringing awareness to various diseases, i.e. the ice bucket challenge for ALS. I would like to know what is being done with the money that is collected. I know that money goes to research for finding a cure. In the last 60 years, we have collected trillions of dollars for research to cure these diseases. We hear about ALS, breast cancer, heart disease, Alzheimers etc. What progress has been made? The answer is very little. I am of the belief that 90 percent of disease is caused by lifestyle: stress, bad food and lack of exercise. Is there any of this money spent to educate the public about prevention? Prevention is the answer. If you dont get the disease, you dont need a cure. Let us rather do some studies about peoples lifestyle, the foods they eat, exercise or lack of and their stress levels, whether job related or family concerns. I myself am a yogi. I eat no meat and no dairy, since dairy causes inflammation, which is a cause of most disease, since the body is generally very inflamed! I also do breathing practices daily, for I feel that the best RX is oxygen. Diseased cells cannot live in an oxygenated environment. The reason nobody provides education on prevention is because no money can be made on healthy people. The society wants sick, miserable people; this way they can sell them RXs and perform surgery. This is food for thought. To me, this is just common sense. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Yogi Andrew Educate the public about disease prevention Ask and you shall receiveThere are benefits to growing old. For example, many restaurants, including both franchise and local stand-alone eateries, offer discounts to seniors, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. But, too often, they don't advertise the fact, so ask your waiter or waitress when placing your order. Even those establishments with no specific policies regarding senior discounts are apt to make an on the spot decision to reduce your final bill by five to ten percent if you ask. It's the same at supermarkets and other chain stores, says AMAC. Some even have special days when seniors get discounts. Meantime, you can go online and search the Web for "senior discounts" before you go out. People ask me questions all the time. Some of those questions I can answer, some I cannot answer and some I will not answer. I wish people would ask me questions I could answer and look good about it. However, it never happens. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage asks me questions all the time. After 43 years, I have finally figured out her questions. Most usually require one word answers. For somebody like me who spends most of his time preaching and writing, boiling an answer down to one word is something that is quite difficult. The one great thing about my wife is, when she asks me a question, she does not really want an answer, because she already has the answer. I do not know how wives have developed this kind of intellectual mystique. I have just never had the opportunity to ask her. This probably would be the main question I would ask. Sometimes, living in the dark is OK. Some people ask questions to get information. Some people ask questions to show off how smart they think they are, which, merely proves how dumb they actually are. Do not let them know that I said this, or they may have some questions for me. Then some people ask questions in order to trick you. Questions are important. Sometimes my friends (both of them), will ask me a question. The primary question is simply, what is a shoofly pie? This is the kind of question I like and furthermore, I like to answer it. The trouble with a question like this is, where do you begin? With something as marvelous and wonderful as a shoofly pie, where do you start to explain all of its delicacies? To begin with, a shoofly pie is a slice of heaven. I am quite sure that in heaven at supper time there will be shoofly pies aplenty. I know quite a few Mennonite and Amish women who, I am quite sure, are in heaven, and if they are, they will insist on making shoofly pie. I do not know if it is in their genes, but I do know it is in their aprons. If anybody has ever had the wonderful opportunity of eating a shoofly pie, they will know exactly what I am talking about. It is hard to explain the experience without your mouth watering so much you need a towel. To start with, the bottom of a shoofly pie is sheer liquid pleasure. Depending on the woman preparing the pie will depend on how thick that bottom layer is. Once that is laid down, the next layer is a delightful mix of flour and sugar and other secret ingredients. That layer seems to float on top of that liquid pleasure. On the top is a crust of munchable delight that has absolutely no equal. Then, to set it off, there is a circular crust that holds all of this together in one magnificent pie. I am not a baker so I do not know how they put all of this together and then put it in the oven and then bring out this awesome, classical dessert known as shoofly pie. Some things are so wonderful that they cannot be fully explained. Personally, I would rather not spend much time trying to answer the question, What is a shoofly pie? I would preferably utilize that time delving into eating a shoofly pie. That is my greatest delight. Recently I indulged this marvelous delight in the center of shoofly pie country. Everybody knows that to be Lancaster, Pennsylvania. A conference was going to be there that I wanted to go to but I had many things that prohibited me from going there. All I could think about was the wonderful shoofly pies I could indulge in if I went to that conference. So, I worked hard to eliminate everything that would keep me from going there. Some things are, indeed, worth fighting for. About a month before the conference was to start, I had dealt with the final obstruction and was able to make plans to go. All I could think about was, Shoofly pie, here I come. As soon as my flight landed, I hurried off to the nearest restaurant and indulged in my first slice of shoofly pie for the weekend. I am happy to say it was not my last piece. At the conference, they had breakfast, lunch and dinner and for dessert, even at breakfast, was shoofly pie. I cannot tell you how many pieces of shoofly pie I ate, for the simple reason I cannot count that high without taking off my It was a shoofly pie celebration weekend Out to Pastor Rev.

Dear Readers, I had a great week. I decided to stop in at the Genealogy Club and I was absolutely fascinated. It is very educational as they discussed all the resources they are familiar with and are used to look up family lineage. At this meeting they were discussing brick walls no, not real brick made walls but when they cant go any further in their search. Several members spoke of their brick wall and the others gave them very helpful advice for their search. Would you believe some of the members have gone as far back to year 1400 or believe it or not year 1050! What a great club and they will welcome any resident who would like to visit and perhaps begin their lineage search. I also dropped in at rehearsals for Hello Dolly. Oak Run has so many talented and interesting people. It is awesome to see so many seniors staying active. They just keep on keeping on in their retirement. Let me tell you I had trouble sitting still as they sang and danced. Garth, one of the actors, sang Isnt our world a wonderful place and I thought Isnt Oak Run a wonderful place? Read on for what is happening with other groups. Dont forget pancakes tomorrow 8 to 10 a.m.; bingo Tuesdays at 6 p.m. with take-out 4 to 5:30.

In medium bowl mix together flours, sugar and sea salt. Using pastry cutter, cut-in shortening and peanut butter, until mixture resembles small peas. Drizzle mixture with cold water until mixture is moist and holds together. Roll out on floured surface to at least 1/16th of an inch thickness. Using 3-by-5-inch index (recipe) card for template, cut into sixteen 3-by-5-inch shapes. Re-rolling works fine. In middle of eight shapes, smear 1/2 heaping tea spoon peanut butter and heaping tea spoon of jam on top. Be careful not to go to edges. Using fingers, wet edges with water and place another piece of pastry on top. Press all sides well, and using fork press all edges to secure. Using fork, gently poke tops in four places so steam can escape. Place inch apart on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 13 minutes until starting to brown around edges. Cool on rack. Whisk together drizzle of choice in small bowl. Drizzle over cooled tarts. Note: This pastry is very user-friendly and delicate. Freeze tarts up to one month and defrost at room temperature before serving. Servings: 8 pieces Prepared pie crust Chopped peanuts (optional) Filling: 7 apples, peeled cored and sliced 2/3 cup sugar 3 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon lemon juice Crumble: 3/4 cup rolled oats 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup peanut butter 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/2cup flour Place crust in 9-inch pie pan and crimp edges. Use dried beans to weigh down bottom. Bake crust for 10 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned. Mix all filling ingredients together and put in crust. Using hands, mix crumble ingredients until in pea-sized pieces. Top apples with crumble. Dont worry if sky high, apples will cook down and pie will be perfectly proportioned. Bake at 350F for 40 minutes. Keep edges covered with foil until last 15 min utes. Garnish with chopped peanuts. FAMILY FEATURES In kitchens, cafeterias and restaurants nationwide, our local food preferences may be unique, and our culinary traditions may be diverse, but we all share a common bond: a love for peanut butter. Affordable, nutritious and of course delicious, peanut butter is a staple found in most American homes, said Leslie Wagner, executive director of Southern Peanut Growers. While some parts of the country prefer their foods hot and spicy, others prefer savory or sweet. But no matter where you go, families love making peanuts or peanut butter a key ingredient in their favorite recipes. To celebrate the unique flavors from coast to coast, and to find the best hometown PB recipes, Southern Peanut Growers conducted its first PB My Way regional recipe contest. Peanut butter lovers nationwide submitted their recipes, from spicy stuffed peppers inspired by the South west to decadent chocolate bars in the Northeast. These are the top regional PB-powered recipes in our United States of Peanut Butter. For more recipes, visit www.peanutbutterlovers.com.

CWPM From Your ReporterA few nights ago I was talking with my bride Suzi about all the activities we have available here at Cherrywood. For those of you who are regular readers of this column you know my reports include not only up coming events but also various functions that have already taken place. I humbly try to be as accurate as possible in my reporting. During that conversation, we noted that until I became active with the Citizen Newspaper; we didnt attend very many happenings at the clubhouse. Out of ignorance; disinterest or just plain laziness; we were content to stay home in front of the TV or working on our varied hobbies. Because one of my hobbies was writing, when the position became available to write for the newspaper I offered my services. Wow, what an eye opener. Because of my new job; I was required to start going to the various events and writing about them. A whole new world opened to me and to my wife because of that. Not only did we start attending club meetings; dances; exercise and sports activities; etc. we found which ones we enjoyed. It was as if a new and exciting chapter had opened in our lives. Recently Ive spoken with several people that I havent seen at our various functions. When I asked them why they didnt take part the reasons boiled down to attitudes of complacency and discomfort; those who didnt care and those who didnt feel comfortable in large groups of people. A very few said they didnt feel welcome when they had gone to one function or another. For those who were made to feel unwelcome at one point or another, let me just say that times are changing. Not one group; club or organization is not warmly welcoming all persons who join them. Once you attend a couple of times, you will fit right in. Choose a function that you would like to find out more about; put on your smile and then go to it. As for the complacency situation, theres not much I can say except that you are missing out on not only some very fun times; you are also missing out on some very fun people. Friendly people make friends so give your self a push and try a few different events. Now we address those who dont feel comfortable going alone into a large group. Pick a friend or neighbor and go with you. Try out Trivia; Movie Night; Cribbage Club; Line Dancing or any one of the dozens of activities we have here at Cherrywood. Youll have a buddy to share with and youll make new friends as well. That brings us to the very best reason to get involved; that is the people. We have an abundance of good people here at Cherrywood. Each has their own personality; interests; sense of humor; and quirks but they are just good people. If you dont give them the opportunity to share your personality with them; you lose. There is not greater gift in life than friendship. In good times and bad; real friends will be there for you. I strongly encourage you to step up; step out and become a part of this wonderful community. Between the Citizen and the Chirp, you will find something of interest so dont be shy; lazy or worried about your reception; just put yourself out there. Trust me. If you have any comments or suggestions for the Cherrywood Column of the Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Thank you for reading.

MALLCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 Team up for weekly shopping tripsIt's not an Olympic sport, but team shopping is an excellent way for retirees to cut their grocery bills. The Association of Mature American Citizens recommends getting together with a good neighbor or friend to make a list of items that can be purchased in bulk on weekly grocery outings and then shared. Another way to save money is to prepare meals in advance, on paper, before going to the supermarket, listing the ingredients and the quantities you'll need. This way you'll avoid the costly mistakes of over stocking and impulse buying. Two-in-one meals will also reduce your grocery bill. For example, the leftovers from Monday night's roast chicken dinner can provide the makings for a tasty chicken salad lunch on Wednesday.

On the menu for this occasion is Bratwurst with all the fixings; lemonade and iced tea to drink and ice cream for dessert. If youve ever had a meal like this before you know how tender the meat is and how tasty the trimmings are. Feel free to bring your own beverages if you wish to enhance the flavor of the evening. We have a special treat in the entertainment department for this event. We have booked the award winning Gator Bone Band. This group of what they describe as a family of friends performs folk; bluegrass; traditional tunes and popular songs. The vocals are clear and crisp and the instrumentals are beautiful when played by these professionals. Add to these qualities their own original recordings and songs and you have a real treat in listening pleasure. Our Summer Fest celebrations are always well attended but fear not; our entertainment committee usually gets everyone through the line in a half hour or less. Because of their efficiency you can enjoy a hot meal and then sit back and listen to the music or get up and dance to the tunes. The Gator Bone Band will be playing before and immediately after the meal so you wont miss a note while youre enjoying your dinner. Naturally there will be a door prize and 50/50 drawing at the end of the evening so you have a chance of winning big but youll be a winner just by attending this gala event. Be sure to get your tickets from the office so your place will be reserved.Pellerin Nine Ball TourneyOur men and women are getting ready for the big day when they will square off to see who is the best 9 Ball player in Cherrywood.

Spectators were encouraged to come and root for their favorite players. Mick will be officiating along with some other referees to make sure everyone understands the rules and enjoys the match. See next weeks Citizen to learn the results of this match up. Cherrywood Summer Fest to continue on Aug. 27 Cherrywood John Everlove Explaining the rules for the nine-ball tournament. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE18 The flu is a serious and sometimes deadly illness that is especially hard on senior citizens so why take any chances? We want you around for all the great events we have here at Cherrywood; get your shots and stay healthy.Movie NightBen Stiller will be staring in Night at the Museum Battle of the Smithsonian when we enjoy Movie Night at Cherrywood on Tuesday, Sept. 2. Movie nights are special because it gives everyone a chance to see top quality feature films on the big screen in our comfortable clubhouse. Lounge chairs are brought in from pool side to provide comfortable seating and add to the relaxed atmosphere. Youll no doubt smell the wonderful aroma of popcorn when you enter and it; like the movie; is free to everyone. Also enjoy complimentary lemonade and iced tea or if you prefer; bring our own drinks and snacks. The movie begins promptly at 7 p.m. so plan to arrive a little early. The plot to this feature reads like a novel so all I can recommend is that you go to your computer and look it up. Night at the Museum sounds hilarious with some really wild and weird characters from the past played by the likes of Robin Williams; Amy Adams; and Owen Wilson among others. With a cast like that how could it not be funny? Just a reminder that volunteers are needed to assist with Movie Night. Up until now; Fred and Jay OHern have carried the full burden of making popcorn; bringing in chairs and making the drinks. If you have a few minutes before or after the film presentation; let Fred or Jay know and offer to help them out. The more people we have helping; the less work for everyone.A chance meetingPatriot Dog volunteer Bill Spangenberg was out walking his new four legged charge and friend Smitty when he met up with a friendly couple; Trude and Skip Smith. It was Trude and Skip who donated the money through our Veterans Club to purchase Smitty. Both of the donors and puppy seemed quite pleased that they bumped into each other. Amidst a wildly wagging tail and some vigorous pets all concerned were smiling and enjoying each others company. Smitty was named in honor of two family members of Trude and Skip. They had served in the military and the Patriot Dog was purchased in their memory.

This promises to be a special night with delicious food; excellent entertainment and great fellowship. You will need a ticket to gain entry but thanks to Mario and Chris Zacco; the tickets are free. On the menu for this occasion is Bratwurst with all the fixings; lemonade and iced tea to drink and ice cream for dessert. If youve ever had a meal like this before you know how tender the meat is and how tasty the trimmings are. Feel free to bring your own beverages if you wish to enhance the flavor of the evening. We have a special treat in the entertainment department for this event. We have booked the award winning Gator Bone Band. This group of what they describe as a family of friends performs folk; bluegrass; traditional tunes and popular songs. The vocals are clear and crisp and the instrumentals are beautiful when played by these professionals. Add to these qualities their own original recordings and songs and you have a real treat in listening pleasure. Our Summer Fest celebrations are always well attended but fear not; our entertainment committee usually gets everyone through the line in a half hour or less. Because of their efficiency you can enjoy a hot meal and then sit back and listen to the music or get up and dance to the tunes. The Gator Bone Band will be playing before and immediately after the meal so you wont miss a note while youre enjoying your dinner. Naturally there will be a door prize and 50/50 drawing at the end of the evening so you have a chance of winning big but youll be a winner just by attending this gala event. Be sure to get your tickets from the office so your place will be reserved.Pellerin Nine Ball TourneyOur men and women are getting ready for the big day when they will square off to see who is the best 9 Ball player in Cherrywood. Mick James is the coordinator of this annual event thats held in memory of Norm Perllerin. More than 30 players have signed up to participate and we are looking for some stiff competition and exciting games this year. Last years winner, Larry Murray will be defending his position against some tough contenders. This match should not only be a lot of fun to play in but also a blast to watch. Spectators were encouraged to come and root for their favorite players. Mick will be officiating along with some other referees to make sure everyone understands the rules and enjoys the match. See next weeks Citizen to learn the results of this match up. Cherrywood Summer Fest to continue on Aug. 27 Cherrywood John Everlove Explaining the rules for the nine-ball tournament. PLEASESEECHERRYWOOD, PAGE18 The flu is a serious and sometimes deadly illness that is especially hard on senior citizens so why take any chances? We want you around for all the great events we have here at Cherrywood; get your shots and stay healthy.Movie NightBen Stiller will be staring in Night at the Museum Battle of the Smithsonian when we enjoy Movie Night at Cherrywood on Tuesday, Sept. 2. Movie nights are special because it gives everyone a chance to see top quality feature films on the big screen in our comfortable clubhouse. Lounge chairs are brought in from pool side to provide comfortable seating and add to the relaxed atmosphere. Youll no doubt smell the wonderful aroma of popcorn when you enter and it; like the movie; is free to everyone. Also enjoy complimentary lemonade and iced tea or if you prefer; bring our own drinks and snacks. The movie begins promptly at 7 p.m. so plan to arrive a little early. The plot to this feature reads like a novel so all I can recommend is that you go to your computer and look it up. Night at the Museum sounds hilarious with some really wild and weird characters from the past played by the likes of Robin Williams; Amy Adams; and Owen Wilson among others. With a cast like that how could it not be funny? Just a reminder that volunteers are needed to assist with Movie Night. Up until now; Fred and Jay OHern have carried the full burden of making popcorn; bringing in chairs and making the drinks. If you have a few minutes before or after the film presentation; let Fred or Jay know and offer to help them out. The more people we have helping; the less work for everyone.A chance meetingPatriot Dog volunteer Bill Spangenberg was out walking his new four legged charge and friend Smitty when he met up with a friendly couple; Trude and Skip Smith. It was Trude and Skip who donated the money through our Veterans Club to purchase Smitty. Both of the donors and puppy seemed quite pleased that they bumped into each other. Amidst a wildly wagging tail and some vigorous pets all concerned were smiling and enjoying each others company. Smitty was named in honor of two family members of Trude and Skip. They had served in the military and the Patriot Dog was purchased in their memory. Bill is the Vice President of our Veterans Club and works with the SPCA and Patriot Dog Project to socialize these wonderful service dogs on weekends.

CWPM From Your ReporterA few nights ago I was talking with my bride Suzi about all the activities we have available here at Cherrywood. For those of you who are regular readers of this column you know my reports include not only up coming events but also various functions that have already taken place. I humbly try to be as accurate as possible in my reporting. During that conversation, we noted that until I became active with the Citizen Newspaper; we didnt attend very many happenings at the clubhouse. Out of ignorance; disinterest or just plain laziness; we were content to stay home in front of the TV or working on our varied hobbies. Because one of my hobbies was writing, when the position became available to write for the newspaper I offered my services. Wow, what an eye opener. Because of my new job; I was required to start going to the various events and writing about them. A whole new world opened to me and to my wife because of that. Not only did we start attending club meetings; dances; exercise and sports activities; etc. we found which ones we enjoyed. It was as if a new and exciting chapter had opened in our lives. Recently Ive spoken with several people that I havent seen at our various functions. When I asked them why they didnt take part the reasons boiled down to attitudes of complacency and discomfort; those who didnt care and those who didnt feel comfortable in large groups of people. A very few said they didnt feel welcome when they had gone to one function or another. For those who were made to feel unwelcome at one point or another, let me just say that times are changing. Not one group; club or organization is not warmly welcoming all persons who join them. Once you attend a couple of times, you will fit right in. Choose a function that you would like to find out more about; put on your smile and then go to it. As for the complacency situation, theres not much I can say except that you are missing out on not only some very fun times; you are also missing out on some very fun people. Friendly people make friends so give your self a push and try a few different events. Now we address those who dont feel comfortable going alone into a large group. Pick a friend or neighbor and go with you. Try out Trivia; Movie Night; Cribbage Club; Line Dancing or any one of the dozens of activities we have here at Cherrywood. Youll have a buddy to share with and youll make new friends as well. That brings us to the very best reason to get involved; that is the people. We have an abundance of good people here at Cherrywood. Each has their own personality; interests; sense of humor; and quirks but they are just good people. If you dont give them the opportunity to share your personality with them; you lose. There is not greater gift in life than friendship. In good times and bad; real friends will be there for you. I strongly encourage you to step up; step out and become a part of this wonderful community. Between the Citizen and the Chirp, you will find something of interest so dont be shy; lazy or worried about your reception; just put yourself out there. Trust me. If you have any comments or suggestions for the Cherrywood Column of the Citizen Newspaper please contact me at urperssec@yahoo.com. Thank you for reading.

MALLCONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 Team up for weekly shopping tripsIt's not an Olympic sport, but team shopping is an excellent way for retirees to cut their grocery bills. The Association of Mature American Citizens recommends getting together with a good neighbor or friend to make a list of items that can be purchased in bulk on weekly grocery outings and then shared. Another way to save money is to prepare meals in advance, on paper, before going to the supermarket, listing the ingredients and the quantities you'll need. This way you'll avoid the costly mistakes of over stocking and impulse buying. Two-in-one meals will also reduce your grocery bill. For example, the leftovers from Monday night's roast chicken dinner can provide the makings for a tasty chicken salad lunch on Wednesday.

Dear Readers, I had a great week. I decided to stop in at the Genealogy Club and I was absolutely fascinated. It is very educational as they discussed all the resources they are familiar with and are used to look up family lineage. At this meeting they were discussing brick walls no, not real brick made walls but when they cant go any further in their search. Several members spoke of their brick wall and the others gave them very helpful advice for their search. Would you believe some of the members have gone as far back to year 1400 or believe it or not year 1050! What a great club and they will welcome any resident who would like to visit and perhaps begin their lineage search. I also dropped in at rehearsals for Hello Dolly. Oak Run has so many talented and interesting people. It is awesome to see so many seniors staying active. They just keep on keeping on in their retirement. Let me tell you I had trouble sitting still as they sang and danced. Garth, one of the actors, sang Isnt our world a wonderful place and I thought Isnt Oak Run a wonderful place? Read on for what is happening with other groups. Dont forget pancakes tomorrow 8 to 10 a.m.; bingo Tuesdays at 6 p.m. with take-out 4 to 5:30.

The buffet was really good with baked chicken, carved pork loin and excellent lightly breaded fish. The show was Forever Plaid, a long running and favorite show here in Florida. The four young men who performed had great voices and interjected humor and top-ofthe-line showmanship. The segment on the Ed Sullivan Show was especially appreciated by everyone and brought back many memories.

In medium bowl mix together flours, sugar and sea salt. Using pastry cutter, cut-in shortening and peanut butter, until mixture resembles small peas. Drizzle mixture with cold water until mixture is moist and holds together. Roll out on floured surface to at least 1/16th of an inch thickness. Using 3-by-5-inch index (recipe) card for template, cut into sixteen 3-by-5-inch shapes. Re-rolling works fine. In middle of eight shapes, smear 1/2 heaping tea spoon peanut butter and heaping tea spoon of jam on top. Be careful not to go to edges. Using fingers, wet edges with water and place another piece of pastry on top. Press all sides well, and using fork press all edges to secure. Using fork, gently poke tops in four places so steam can escape. Place inch apart on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 13 minutes until starting to brown around edges. Cool on rack. Whisk together drizzle of choice in small bowl. Drizzle over cooled tarts. Note: This pastry is very user-friendly and delicate. Freeze tarts up to one month and defrost at room temperature before serving. Servings: 8 pieces Prepared pie crust Chopped peanuts (optional) Filling: 7 apples, peeled cored and sliced 2/3 cup sugar 3 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon lemon juice Crumble: 3/4 cup rolled oats 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup peanut butter 1/3 cup brown sugar 1/2cup flour Place crust in 9-inch pie pan and crimp edges. Use dried beans to weigh down bottom. Bake crust for 10 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned. Mix all filling ingredients together and put in crust. Using hands, mix crumble ingredients until in pea-sized pieces. Top apples with crumble. Dont worry if sky high, apples will cook down and pie will be perfectly proportioned. Bake at 350F for 40 minutes. Keep edges covered with foil until last 15 min utes. Garnish with chopped peanuts. FAMILY FEATURES In kitchens, cafeterias and restaurants nationwide, our local food preferences may be unique, and our culinary traditions may be diverse, but we all share a common bond: a love for peanut butter. Affordable, nutritious and of course delicious, peanut butter is a staple found in most American homes, said Leslie Wagner, executive director of Southern Peanut Growers. While some parts of the country prefer their foods hot and spicy, others prefer savory or sweet. But no matter where you go, families love making peanuts or peanut butter a key ingredient in their favorite recipes. To celebrate the unique flavors from coast to coast, and to find the best hometown PB recipes, Southern Peanut Growers conducted its first PB My Way regional recipe contest. Peanut butter lovers nationwide submitted their recipes, from spicy stuffed peppers inspired by the South west to decadent chocolate bars in the Northeast. These are the top regional PB-powered recipes in our United States of Peanut Butter. For more recipes, visit www.peanutbutterlovers.com.

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 14~ Friday, August 22, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ORPHAN TRAIN By Christine Baker Kline Still clinging to the Best Seller list since its 2013 debut, Orphan Train is a Book Club favorite and a perfect blend of fiction and history. It uses a familiar plot technique of moving from past to present with interwoven stories of two women: teenage Penobscot Indian Molly and 91-year-old Niamh (renamed Vivian). Molly is aging out of the Spruce Harbor, Maine foster-care system when shes paired with elderly Vivian who needs help cleaning out her attic. During this public service commitment Molly discovers Vivians past as she sorts through keepsakes in the attic, a past that meant as a young Irish immigrant she was orphaned, put on a train with hundreds of other abandoned children, and sent westward out of New York. Did the religious leaders behind the orphan train that operated between 1854 and 1929 ever consider that poor Midwestern farmers might exploit these homeless children as cheap labor and even abuse them? Well never know. But thats exactly what happened to Vivian in a succession of cruel families before landing in the arms of caring, nurturing people who came to love her genuinely. When Molly meets Vivian, she is living with ghosts: I believe in ghosts. Many times in my life I have felt them around me. I am ninety-one years old, and almost everyone who was once in my life is now a ghost. Gradually, Molly and Vivian discover the parallels in their lives, and a special bond develops between them. Although Mollys story adds a welcome dimension, the fleshed-out, rich history of Vivians life overshadows it. And some of the similarities between the two seem exaggerated a bit. The author does take a few liberties with the facts. In reality, the phrase orphan train did not exist until 1979 when a made-for-TV documentary coined it. Nor did all the children travel by train. Many were driven to neighboring states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania. And, finally, they were not all orphans; many had two parents who either could not or would not care for them. Still, this is a haunting, near flawless novel, with a little-known piece of history a story that will stay with you long after you read the last page. Not orphans, not a train, but near flawless novel Bookmark Pat Wellington Check out our website www.smcitizen.com Cranes Corner Andrew Crane Lately I am hearing about bringing awareness to various diseases, i.e. the ice bucket challenge for ALS. I would like to know what is being done with the money that is collected. I know that money goes to research for finding a cure. In the last 60 years, we have collected trillions of dollars for research to cure these diseases. We hear about ALS, breast cancer, heart disease, Alzheimers etc. What progress has been made? The answer is very little. I am of the belief that 90 percent of disease is caused by lifestyle: stress, bad food and lack of exercise. Is there any of this money spent to educate the public about prevention? Prevention is the answer. If you dont get the disease, you dont need a cure. Let us rather do some studies about peoples lifestyle, the foods they eat, exercise or lack of and their stress levels, whether job related or family concerns. I myself am a yogi. I eat no meat and no dairy, since dairy causes inflammation, which is a cause of most disease, since the body is generally very inflamed! I also do breathing practices daily, for I feel that the best RX is oxygen. Diseased cells cannot live in an oxygenated environment. The reason nobody provides education on prevention is because no money can be made on healthy people. The society wants sick, miserable people; this way they can sell them RXs and perform surgery. This is food for thought. To me, this is just common sense. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Yogi Andrew Educate the public about disease prevention Ask and you shall receiveThere are benefits to growing old. For example, many restaurants, including both franchise and local stand-alone eateries, offer discounts to seniors, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. But, too often, they don't advertise the fact, so ask your waiter or waitress when placing your order. Even those establishments with no specific policies regarding senior discounts are apt to make an on the spot decision to reduce your final bill by five to ten percent if you ask. It's the same at supermarkets and other chain stores, says AMAC. Some even have special days when seniors get discounts. Meantime, you can go online and search the Web for "senior discounts" before you go out. People ask me questions all the time. Some of those questions I can answer, some I cannot answer and some I will not answer. I wish people would ask me questions I could answer and look good about it. However, it never happens. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage asks me questions all the time. After 43 years, I have finally figured out her questions. Most usually require one word answers. For somebody like me who spends most of his time preaching and writing, boiling an answer down to one word is something that is quite difficult. The one great thing about my wife is, when she asks me a question, she does not really want an answer, because she already has the answer. I do not know how wives have developed this kind of intellectual mystique. I have just never had the opportunity to ask her. This probably would be the main question I would ask. Sometimes, living in the dark is OK. Some people ask questions to get information. Some people ask questions to show off how smart they think they are, which, merely proves how dumb they actually are. Do not let them know that I said this, or they may have some questions for me. Then some people ask questions in order to trick you. Questions are important. Sometimes my friends (both of them), will ask me a question. The primary question is simply, what is a shoofly pie? This is the kind of question I like and furthermore, I like to answer it. The trouble with a question like this is, where do you begin? With something as marvelous and wonderful as a shoofly pie, where do you start to explain all of its delicacies? To begin with, a shoofly pie is a slice of heaven. I am quite sure that in heaven at supper time there will be shoofly pies aplenty. I know quite a few Mennonite and Amish women who, I am quite sure, are in heaven, and if they are, they will insist on making shoofly pie. I do not know if it is in their genes, but I do know it is in their aprons. If anybody has ever had the wonderful opportunity of eating a shoofly pie, they will know exactly what I am talking about. It is hard to explain the experience without your mouth watering so much you need a towel. To start with, the bottom of a shoofly pie is sheer liquid pleasure. Depending on the woman preparing the pie will depend on how thick that bottom layer is. Once that is laid down, the next layer is a delightful mix of flour and sugar and other secret ingredients. That layer seems to float on top of that liquid pleasure. On the top is a crust of munchable delight that has absolutely no equal. Then, to set it off, there is a circular crust that holds all of this together in one magnificent pie. I am not a baker so I do not know how they put all of this together and then put it in the oven and then bring out this awesome, classical dessert known as shoofly pie. Some things are so wonderful that they cannot be fully explained. Personally, I would rather not spend much time trying to answer the question, What is a shoofly pie? I would preferably utilize that time delving into eating a shoofly pie. That is my greatest delight. Recently I indulged this marvelous delight in the center of shoofly pie country. Everybody knows that to be Lancaster, Pennsylvania. A conference was going to be there that I wanted to go to but I had many things that prohibited me from going there. All I could think about was the wonderful shoofly pies I could indulge in if I went to that conference. So, I worked hard to eliminate everything that would keep me from going there. Some things are, indeed, worth fighting for. About a month before the conference was to start, I had dealt with the final obstruction and was able to make plans to go. All I could think about was, Shoofly pie, here I come. As soon as my flight landed, I hurried off to the nearest restaurant and indulged in my first slice of shoofly pie for the weekend. I am happy to say it was not my last piece. At the conference, they had breakfast, lunch and dinner and for dessert, even at breakfast, was shoofly pie. I cannot tell you how many pieces of shoofly pie I ate, for the simple reason I cannot count that high without taking off my It was a shoofly pie celebration weekend Out to Pastor Rev.

I am happy to say that they had more shoofly pie at this conference than I could consume although I did my very best, I assure you. I know that life sometimes has its hard paths and things can become very difficult. That is why we need to have something to really look forward to. The writer to the Hebrews understood this when he wrote, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:2). Celebrating the delicacies of life enable us to survive the adversities of life. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

All over the world, the press took potshots at Bogie: Was Bogarts Face Red? chuckled the headline in Londons News Chronicle. Dont try to fox me again, columnist George Sokolsky warned Bogart in an open letter in the New York Sun. By 1952, Bogart even considered voting Republican. He almost cast a ballot for Eisenhower in the presidential election, but his unrelentingly liberal wife vehemently objected. Lauren Bacall would remain well to the left of her husbandand to the nation, for that matter. But at least in 1947, Bacall and her fellow liberals learned a hard lesson. Yes, she would remain a liberal, but she was chastened by this experience.

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 28~ Friday, August 22, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Despite your Aries penchant for wanting to tackle a problem head-on, you might want to take a little more time to see how a current situation develops. It could surprise you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Taking on the role of peacemaker in a disruptive environment is a challenge. But you can do it. Just continue to have the faith in yourself that many others have in you. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although your work schedule keeps you busy, you should make time to start preparing for that important upcoming family event youll want to celebrate in a special way. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Home is where the Moon Child wants to be early in the week. But by weeks end, a chance to travel raises her or his excitement level, and that of the lucky person who gets to go along.

As always, do the right thing the right way, and youll win in the end. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) An offer could have many good things attached to it that are not apparent at first glance, including a chance to move into another career area. You might want to check out its possibilities. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) With responsibilities surging both in the workplace and in the home, its important to prioritize how you deal with them. Be patient. Pressures will begin to ease next week. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A positive reaction to a suggestion could indicate that youre on track for getting your message to the right people. Devote the weekend to catching up with the special people in your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A new attitude from those in charge could make things difficult unless you can accept the changes without feeling as if youre being pressured into doing so. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Family matters once again dominate much of the week. But dont neglect your workplace duties while you deal with them. An offer to help could come from a surprising source. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A difficult workplace situation begins to ease, but there still are matters that need to be dealt with before its fully resolved. Theres also a more positive turn in domestic relationships. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Dont let yourself be rushed into making a decision about an intriguing financial arrangement. Asking questions and checking it out now could pay off in a big way later on. raised suspicions among the liberals, including Bacall, though apparently not enough to stop the voyage. Coincidence or design? Lauren Bacall wrote later. What happened on the road from California to Washington is fascinating political theater. It would make a terrific movie, if someone in modern Hollywood dared to portray it accurately. In my 2010 book, Dupes, I lay it out at length, including the breathtakingly nave statements along the way from the likes of Judy Garland, Danny Kaye, Gene Kelly, John Garfield, and so many other Hollywood Golden Agers whose movies I love. Their statements were seized by the likes of the Daily Worker, which turned them into giant headlines. The liberals/progressives, mouthing the talking points of the closet communists, were vicious toward the House committee. They literally compared the congressmen to Nazis, stormtroopers, Goebbels, Hitler, the Spanish Inquisition, and on and on. The four major Hollywood writers called to testifyDalton Trumbo, Albert Maltz, Alvah Bessie, and John Howard Lawson (a.k.a., Hollywoods Commissar)were especially belligerent. Alas, to make a long story short, the liberals/progressives were stunned, dumbfounded, shocked beyond belief, and deeply betrayed when they got to Washington and found that the accused communists were undeniably and unmistakably just that: communists. Congress, both Republicans and Democrats alike, openly presented mountains of evidence: registration rolls, news clips, Daily Worker articles, New Masses bylines, front-group memberships, party applications, forms, cards, checks, cash, and even numbers. The world quickly learned some crucial facts. To wit: Dalton Trumbo, Communist Party registration card, no. 47187, code no. Dalt T. A total of 39 citations with communist or communist-front affiliations. Albert Maltz, Communist Party registration card, no. 47196. A total of 58 citations with communist or communist-front affiliations. Alvah Bessie, Communist Party registration card, no. 46836. A total of 32 citations with communist or communist-front affiliations. John Howard Lawson, Communist Party registration card, no. 47275. As for Lawson, he was a one-man communist-front. Congressional investigators presented the May 18, 1934 Daily Worker identifying Lawson as no less than one of its own correspondents; a November 1946 issue of Masses & Mainstream listing Lawson as a member of its editorial board (along with Alvah Bessie and Dalton Tumbo); and the awful fact that Lawson (who was Jewish) was a sponsor of the odious American Peace Mobilization, which from 1940-41 had accommodated Hitler because of Hitlers alliance with Stalin. It was one of the most insidious communist fronts. Joining Lawson in the front were Albert Maltz, Budd Schulberg, Herbert Biberman, Dashiell Hammett, Lillian Hellman, Artie Shaw, and Will Geer. The evidence was undeniableand only made the likes of Lawson, Trumbo, Maltz, and Bessie even angrier. Lawson was fuming. He had to be escorted out of the hearing room as he screamed at the House committee: Hitlers Germany!... Hitler tactics! All of which brings me back to Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogart, much like his Hollywood persona, was a mercurial fellow. You didnt backstab Bogie. Already a loose fuse, he grew redder and redder as the facts on Hollywoods communists rolled in, and then he detonated. You [expletive, plural] sold me out! he yelled at Danny Kaye. Unbelievable as it may seem, Lauren Bacall later said that as she and Bogie and the others flew to Washington, they did not know that most of the unfriendlies called to testify were secretly members of the Communist Party. We didnt realize until much later, she admitted, that we were being used to some degree by the Unfriendly Ten. She conceded that they had been foolishly nave, headstrong, emotional, and that they had hastily strolled into something we knew nothing about. Most members of the Committee for the First Amendment felt that way. The group fell silent, withered, and died. Thats the history. The villains were the communists who lied to and exploited their liberal friends. The communists had hung the liberals out to dry, tarnishing their reputations with the movie-going public. Liberals like the wonderful lyricist Ira Gershwin now appeared before the California legislature to explain how he could be so oblivious as to host meetings for a communist front at his home. All the liberals endeavored to explain themselves. Bogart, too, looked to repair the damage. He went public with a strong statement explaining why I am not a communist, nor, for that matter, a communist sympathizer. I detest communism just as any decent American does, wrote Bogie. Im about as much in favor of communism as J. Edgar Hoover. He pledged that his name would never again be found on any communist front organization as a sponsor for anything communistic. (For the record, in Dupes, I include a lengthy analysis on whether Bogart had attended a Communist Party training school in New York in 1934, when he was much further to the left than where he was by the end of his life. I found a Bogart on the registration list held in the Soviet Comintern archives on CPUSA. It was a question that I had wanted to ask Lauren Bacall, but never had the chance. Frankly, I doubt she would have been agreeable.)

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 29 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, August 22, 2014 BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Special to the CitizenLauren Bacall died last week at age 89. Her obituaries are paying tribute to a glamorous actress, a famed star from Hollywoods Golden Age, the wife of Humphrey Bogart, and a lifetime liberal. Shes also being celebrated by liberals as a fighter for freedom in the arts, one who bravely confronted McCarthyism and ruthless anti-communist witch hunters in Washington. Sorry, but reality is more complicated. The facts are that Lauren Bacall herself learned the truth about communism in Hollywood. She admitted to being badly duped by bad guys. She learned her lesson, even as her fellow Hollywood liberals to this day have not, opting instead for a false narrative that feeds a handy caricature. Heres what really happened: In October 1947, Lauren Bacall joined a group of high-profile Hollywood actors, writers, and producers for a major public-relations trip to Washington. Their goal was to defend the First Amendment freedoms of their accused friends and colleaguesaccused, that is, of being communists dedicated to infiltrating the motion-picture industry as a means to peddle propaganda. The accused were summoned before the House Committee on UnAmerican Activities as unfriendly witnesses. (For the record, Senator Joe McCarthy had absolutely nothing to do with this.) Unbeknownst to Lauren Bacall and friends, nearly every single one of the accused was a closet communist formally pledged to Stalins Soviet Union. When these individuals joined Communist Party USA (CPUSA), they swore a loyalty oath to strive to ensure the triumph of Soviet power in the United States. They were committed to what CPUSA general secretary William Z. Foster openly called a Soviet America, or what other hope-filled comrades called a United Soviet States of America (USSA). Of course, these communists didnt dare tell any of this to their liberal/progressive friends. They assured their pals that they were good liberals/progressives just like them. They would never support a totalitarian dictatorship. They insisted that they were being unjustly hounded and persecuted and silenced. This was an outrage, they said, a violation of their First Amendment/Constitutional freedoms (none of which existed in the Soviet Union). And thus, they needed the help of their friends. Would these fellow Hollywood liberals/progressives lend a hand? Would they come to Washington to support them? The liberals were more than game. After consulting with the unfriendlies, they created a group called the Committee for the First Amendment. It was a classic name for a communist front, one that made communists smile at their cleverness, especially when they were easily duping fellow leftists. The liberal stars they enlisted ran into the hundreds, with big names like Katherine Hepburn, Henry Fonda, Gregory Peck, Myrna Loy, Paulette Goddard. A group of roughly two dozen lent more than their signatures; they actually set sail for Washington: Danny Kaye, Ira Gershwin, Judy Garland, John Garfield, Sterling Hayden, Gene Kelly, Burt Lancaster, John Huston, Philip Dunne, Billy Wilder, and Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogart and Bacall topped the list, as they would any blockbuster movie. Before we left Hollywood, said Bogart later, we carefully screened every performer so that no red or pink could infiltrate and sabotage our purpose. The streetwise Bogie prided himself in his ability not to be tricked. As one First Amendment crusader put it, Bogart feels that hes the most politically sophisticated guy in our business. The tough-talking Bogie seemed a most unlikely character to be duped. Neither he nor his girl, Lauren Bacall, would be anyones sucker. The crew from the Committee for the First Amendment boarded a plane bearing the name (no kidding) Red Star, which immediately What Im about to say will anger some longtime Florida Gator fans. But then, wheres the fun in life if you cant upset Gator fans? I am sick and tired of reading about, viewing, hearing about the Florida Gators football team, which is what has happened around here all summer. How many days until the first game? Whats the offensive line going to look like? What do the recruits for the 2015 season look like (we havent played 2014 yet)? Lets interview the coach and see if he thinks hes on the hot seat, etc., etc., etc. Its enough to drive a baseball fan mad. Heck, we were even getting football stories when the Gator softball team was winning a national championship. Id like to throw some numbers your way. Consider these. In 1970, the population of Marion County was about 70,000. As you can see, in the past 44 years weve had quite a boom around here. Lets say for the sake of argument that all 70,000 of those people were Gator football fans. Thats highly unlikely, but Ill give you the benefit of the doubt. Today, the population of Marion County is estimated at 337,000. Its safe to say that of those 267,000 people who grew this county since 1970, most of them came from somewhere else. Now, if those original 70,000 people are still around, and all of them are still Gator fans, they make up only about 20 percent of the population. To give you the benefit of the doubt again, well say that 100,000 people in Marion County (I doubt its that high) are Gator fans today. Thats just under 30 percent. So even with the most generous of estimates, 70 percent of the people who live in Marion County do not cheer for the Gators. Thats about 237,000 people in Marion County who really root for somebody else, if they care about college football at all. Remember, at least 267,000 of those people probably came from someplace else. They bring their sports allegiances with them. I was brought up in the New York area as part of the Subway Alumni and cheering for Notre Dame, something that continues to this day. Last week on a local road, I was behind a car with an Iowa State decal in the back window. There are Michigan fans, Ohio State fans, Penn State fans, Tennessee fans and, perish the thought, Alabama fans all throughout our fair county. So when I turn on the TV news, Ill probably turn it off when they come to what they generously call sports. Ill start following college football the day after the baseball season ends. Do you think the Tampa Bay Rays have enough left in the tank to make a run at an American League wild card spot despite trading David Price? Its coming down to crunch time between now and Oct. 1, and while college football teams are playing cupcake opponents (such as Florida vs. Rice), baseball will be deciding postseason lineups.

Classes for public school students began on Monday. Some private schools, including big ones such as Trinity Catholic High School and Blessed Trinity Elementary School, started earlier. Therefore, its time to review some of the most misunderstood traffic rules on the books in Florida. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a two-lane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a four-lane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of fivelane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. So please, know the law and keep the children who are using the school buses safe. You can also save yourself some time and money in the process. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY School buses on the road again Logic shows number of UF fans falling Bogie and Bacall, and Hollywoods Communists READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEEBACALL PAGE9 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR No respect?The basic question is why doesnt the president get any respect. To begin with he (and his backers) refuse to see any view other than their own. Second they change the rhetoric to fit the mood of the day. On the latter three years ago Mr. Obama took a victory lap on how he, as promised, extricated us from Iraq. Now that that country has imploded he says not to blame him for leaving as he had no choice because the Iraq government would not grant our troops immunity. Which is it? Then there is the antiObama, do nothing Republicans. From what I understand the House has sent upward of 300 bills to the Senate. They sit on Harry Reids desk. I assume they must be valid bills or else they would make it to the Senate floor where the Democrats would vote them down. Why else would they not reach the floor? Of course it could be the presidents forum, if you pass a bill I dont like, I will veto it!!! So why waste time. For five years over 300 Democrats in the House and Senate agreed with everything the president said and did. Not a single individual idea came from those bodies. Unity? Obedience? Fear? To be successful in life you have to see the other point of view it is based on lifes realities as that other person sees it, and it is real. As I told a self professed anti-war Democrat recently. If 99 percent of the world were against war, that leaves 70 million who favor it. (His expression was priceless) Republicans know this reality. Democrats wish it werent so. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. I consider myself to be soPLEASESEELETTERS, PAGE33 000J037

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 31 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, August 22, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Deputy Superintendent Rick Lankford, who oversees curriculum and instruction for Marion County Public Schools, will retire next month after 38 years of service with the district. Superintendent George Tomyn has appointed Lisa Krysalka to replace Lankford. Krysalka, herself a 31-year veteran of the district, is the executive director of Human Resources. In her new role, she will oversee all student curriculum and instructional practices for teachers. The position is considered second to the superintendent and often involves budgeting, negotiations, staffing plans, student assignments, and other key academic responsibilities. Krysalka started with MCPS as a teacher at Stanton-Weirsdale Elementary in 1983. She also taught at South Ocala Elementary and Lake Weir Middle. In 1994, she became assistant principal at Belleview Middle. Eleven years later, she became principal at that same school and then moved to the district office in 2012 to her current position. Krysalkas degrees include a bachelor of science in elementary education from Southern Illinois University and a masters in educational leadership from the University of Florida. Jaycee Oliver, a 22-year district employee, replaces Krysalka. Oliver supervises the Employment Services division and will maintain these responsibilities while moving into the executive director of Human Resources position. Olivers background includes teaching at Dr. NH Jones, serving as assistant principal at Dr. NH Jones and Belleview-Santos Elementary schools, and serving as principal at Emerald Shores Elementary and Madison Street Academy. Lankford started with the district in 1975 as a teacher at Lake Weir High. He left the district briefly but came back in 1978 as a math and science teacher at the same school. In 1994, Lankford became assistant principal at Shady Hill Elementary. Later that same year, he was appointed assistant principal at Forest High. Eleven years later in 2005, Lankford became principal at Forest and moved in 2007 to become principal at Vanguard High. Two years ago, he moved to the district office to his current position. Lankfords academic background includes an associates degree from Valencia Community College, a bachelors degree in physical education from the University of Central Florida, and a masters in educational leadership from NOVA University. Lankfords retirement and these appointments become effective Sept. 26.

Friday, August 22, 2014 ~ 5 www.smcitizen.com 32~ Friday, August 22, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Well here it is August already. Its been a pleasant but hot summer so far, just what we expect in Florida. The grass sure has to be cut more often with the summer rains. Enjoy it for now. The holidays will be here before we know it.Feature of the monthI have chosen the Spruce Creek Quilters as feature of the month. They have been active since 2005 and are still going strong. The project they are working on are Friendship quilts. Each member creates a special square of their own and this square is put in a quilt for the other members until everyone has their own Friendship quilt. They meet every Friday (all summer long too) from noon to 2 p.m. These ladies work very hard on all their projects plus they get a chance to socialize. Come join this group and learn to quilt.New England Pot LuckI am sure by now you know SCNs first event will be the New England Pot Luck on Labor Day, Sept. 1. Sign up sheets will be at the clubhouse. Like I said before, if you dont know what a New England Pot Luck is just ask your friends from Maine, they will tell you. Its too bad no one wants to organize the monthly pancake breakfasts. It is truly missed by a lot of people.ArkansasI happened to meet a man who said he just came back from Arkansas and had a wonderful time. He also said it was warm there but not humid. Well I never said anything to him but we spent 13 years in Arkansas and the summers are brutal with heat and humidity, temperatures staying at 100 for over 10 days straight. Also the winters are very cold and icy. Its a beautiful state but we decided Florida had the best of everything plus we dont have to shovel the heat!RulesWe all hope everyone including the real estates realize that in Spruce Creek North (like most of the communities) we have restrictions. This is a 55 plus community which means that one person in the home has to be the age of 55 in order to buy or rent in SCN. Also no children under the age of 18 are to Quilters work on project as they continue their work Jan Liberio Spruce Creek North Pictured from left to right are Zona Doane, Peg Gallagher, Delores Pecor, Sandy Barsky, Harriet, and Stella Kerosetz.

cially liberal, fiscally conservative and believe in a strong military. There was one Democrat that fit that mold. Joe Lieberman and he ended up an Independent. There are several Republicans that seem to be there. Well see. Bill Riola Oak RunObstructionist?Help! It seems I no longer know the meaning of common words. What does the word obstructionist mean? I am watching the happenings in D.C. The house submits bills after bills (about 300) that are tabled by Harry Reid. Yet, I must listen to people tell me the house is the obstructionist. I thought the one who did the obstructing was the obstructionist. Where am I going wrong? Why is the Congress the boogie man, when the president states on TV, for all to see, that he will veto bills that come to his desk. He has that famous pen. That sounds pretty ominous, negative, and obstructionist to me. One side is offering the other is rejecting, who is the obstructionist? I think, maybe, I need a new dictionary. Where does one buy a liberal dictionary? My comprehension seems to be woefully lacking. D.I. Larson OcalaBack the president?This responds to a letter-writer in the Aug. 15 South Marion Citizen. He doesnt like some of our elected officials and media criticizing President Obama, and calls for us to unite behind the president. He says he cant remember a president so vilified in recent history. Ten years ago, when we were fighting two wars, President Bush was beaten and flayed daily by the writers pals in the media and Congress. Did he call for national unity then? Further back, President Johnson was criticized from all fronts during the Vietnam War (LBJ, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?). And President Truman got the same during the Korean War (To err is Truman.). There was relatively little protest during WWI, because President Wilson got Congress to pass a sedition act making it a federal crime to publicly oppose our involvement in that war. He says we are at war in Iraq and Afghanistan. I thought President Obama pulled our troops out of Iraq a few years ago. Obama created the current mess in Iraq by ignoring the lessons of history. He rejected his military advisors recommendation that he keep a residual force in Iraq. When the Korean War ended, we kept (and still keep) a residual force there, and South Korea is still free. After the Vietnam War, we didnt, and a few years later it went Communist. Patricia Shumard Oak RunMedia flames the fireIt is our American right to peacefully protest when we believe an injustice has been done. This right isnt reserved for any race or section of the country. What isnt anyones right is to destroy and loot anothers property! It certainly isnt right to make death threats against an individual, and it is idiotic to give out his name given these death threats. Unfortunately, we have a segment of our society that uses tragedies as their excuse to participate in violent demonstrations, destroying and looting innocent peoples property. They are so brazen in these acts that they could care less if their actions are being filmed, because they know they wont have to pay for these crimes. This latest incident in St. Louis isnt the first and it surely wont be the last until this type behavior is no longer tolerated anywhere in America, certainly not excused. Stopping these outrageous riots will be impossible until the media stops blaming the police force for reacting to the violence by using tear gas, etc. to break up the riots, despite the fact they are being targeted with violence by the demonstrators. They excuse the violent rioting while making the police officers the bad guys, although they know police wouldnt act that way to peaceful demonstrations. Hardly anything is said by the media about this violence and looting and how the offenders should be put behind bars. The media cant resist making such incidents appear all about race in their attempt to justify this behavior, as it first was with Zimmerman, even making a point as to the percent of white policemen vs. the black population. If we ever want to get rid of racism, the media must quit making reference to it every chance they get. If anything, they should question why the white population chooses to move out of these neighborhoods and try to correct the problem. The saddest thing in this whole situation is that we dont even have the complete and verifiable facts as to what happened to cause this incident. It may be found that the officer was totally within his rights to protect himself from attack by taking the actions he did, which unfortunately led to the death of a teenager. This is a possibility. Something has gone wrong when anyone, young or old, thinks it is ok to challenge/attack a law enforcement officer. Things havent changed that much. If the facts do determine that officer wasnt in the wrong, does that mean we will face more riots? Dont be surprised if we do. Too many are not interested in Justice, they simply want revenge. Wayne Rackley OcalaDowntown livingI feel Mr. Clark is out of touch with the younger generations. These younger generations want to be close to the action and dont have the time or want the additional responsibilities that come with maintaining a house in the suburbs of Ocala. They want to be close to the action with quality entertainment and a good nightlife, and they want it within walking distance of where they live. The redevelopment of the old Doctors adviceOne doctor phoned another. Forget the game we had planned for today. Why? asked the other. Mr. Jones just left here, and from the shape his joints are in, its going to rain for sure. More doctors adviceThe best advice I can give you for your elbow, said the doctor, is to give up tennis. Aw, doc, said the tennis fanatic; I just dont deserve the best. Whats second best? Still more doctors adviceWhen Benson started losing every game in his weekly match, he went to see a psychiatrist. After listening to him, the analyst said, Your problem, my friend, is that you worry too much about the game. A few weeks ago, a man came in complaining about the same thing. I told him to relax, and as soon as he did his game improved. I know, said Benson. Hes my opponent. Doctors excuseIt was Saturday morning, and Dr. Klein had reluctantly agreed to spend it with his wife. The phone rang just as they were about to go shopping. It was Kleins colleague, Dr. Herman. Listen, said Herman, Im with Dr. Xavier and Dr. Lao. We need a fourth for doubles. Can you make it? Hmm, said Klein. Uh-huh, yes, I see. Ill be right over. He hung up and grabbed his medical kit. Sorry, dear, he said, but Ive got to go. Is it serious? Ill say it is. Why, there are three doctors there already. A night at the barAt 3 a.m. a desk clerk at a hotel got a call from a drunk guy asking what time the bar opens. It opens at noon, answered the clerk. About an hour later he got a call from the same guy, sounding even drunker. What time does the bar open? he asked. Same time as before, noon, replied the clerk. Another hour passed and he called again, plastered, Whatjoo shay the bar opins at? The clerk then answered, It opens at noon, but if you cant wait, I can have room service send something up to you. No, I dont wanna git in. Ah wanna git out!

Some volunteer their time to others less fortunate. Others prefer playing golf, bingo, going to MTP classes, or travelling. The main thing is to be happy regardless of what happens. We need to enjoy and learn from our experiences. By this age, we should have learned how to be present to lifes events in a state of peace. Regardless of what happens, we need to accept the situation. Resisting what is not to our liking only adds stress to the event. Lets just enjoy the experience of life.Line DanceJanice here.

LIGHTNINGCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Monday marks the start of the U.S. Open Tennis Champion in Flushing Meadows, NY. Today were serving some stories down Pun Alley to you to see whether they get over the net to you.Mind over matter?A retiree had to get more exercise, by his doctors orders, so he decided to play tennis. After a couple of weeks his wife asked him how hes doing. Its going fine, the husband said. When Im on the court and I see the ball speeding towards me, my brain immediately says, To the corner! Back hand! To the net! Smash! Go back! Really? What happens then? the wife asked. Then my body says, Who? Me? You must be kidding!ProfessionalThe tennis pro was a curious one. Every time he missed a shot, he stopped and shouted, Fanity! Fanity! Lester and Albert were playing on the next court. What is he doing? Lester asked. Dont you recognize pro-fanity when you hear it? Sounds familiarHeard about the new tennis racket? one pro asked another. No. What about it? If theres a bad call, it flies off the handle. FaultsTennis is a game in which love often comes up. But try telling that to your opponent. Selling broken tennis racket for $50: No strings attached. He played tennis in the daytime and was a waiter in the evening. He was great at serving. When the first indoor tennis court was finished, the builder made a good net profit. I spilled spot remover on my dog. Now hes gone. Then there was the tennis player who went to the doctor because he heard music whenever he played. The physician cured him by removing his headband. The first tennis game was when Moses served in Pharaohs court. Toms wife always hits the ball into the net on her first serve. She doesnt want to get cheated out of a second shot. A professional tennis players income is his net earnings.Dental awarenessMrs. Jones was one of those women with a natural curiosity. How is it, she asked the dentist one day, that the little hole in my tooth feels so big to my tongue? Well, said the dentist, you know how a womans tongue exaggerates.

downtown Sprint building offers just that. Living downtown would provide grocery stores and two worldclass medical facilities only a short drive away. Much shorter than what most of the residents in Marion County already experience. As for parking, does Mr. Clark really think the city building department is going to approve a development plan that doesnt provide ample parking for their residents? I highly doubt it... If you want to see a revitalized downtown, head up to Atlanta one weekend. Several areas in and around downtown have become the Mecca for both young professionals and young families alike. If you want a closer example, try Winter Garden or Dunedin. The City of Denver, Colorado and even Beaufort, South Carolina have had success revitalizing their downtown. These are a few examples of success stories that offer a great quality of life within walking distance from a residents doorstep. With the City of Ocala and Marion County quickly emerging as a technology hot spot, creating the type of atmosphere and quality of life to lure in these young professionals is key. The City of Ocala has done an excellent job at repositioning and revitalizing their downtown. The Ocala Theater, Tuscawilla Park, recently renovated downtown square and Citizens Circle, the soon to be renovated City Auditorium and the future linear park is helping attract those young professionals to live and work right here in Marion County. Andrew Jorgensen Southwest OcalaNo gun, no smokeGuess who resolved the mystery of the Benghazi Smoking Gun yes, the Republicans, they found no gun and no smoke, Last week the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee Report completely contradicts the false claims and criticisims by Fox News in conjunction with the Republican Party regarding the Binghazi Coverup. (Read the Report). The eight Benghazi investigations have cost the American taxpayers $14 million and produced no evidence of any wrongdoing by the Obama adminstration. In addition to those eight investigations, the Republican controlled house just approved another $3.5 million for an additional investigation by Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy. This presents Speaker John Boehner with a tough decision to make, He can accept the findings of a responsible Republican committee, or allow the Trey Gowdy kangaroo court to proceed.

NORTHCONTINUED FROM PAGE 5 Read the classifieds Books that Shaped America SeriesOn Aug. 12 from 1-2:30, Lectures 19, 20, and 21 were shown at Live Oak Hall. The first lecture The Catcher in the Rye by Jerome David Salinger was discussed. It was a 1951 Book of the Month Club book. Salinger was one of the leading writers of his generation. He was a nonconformist. In J.D. Salingers brilliant coming-of-age novel, Holden Caulfield, a 17-year-old prep school adolescent relates his lonely, life-changing 24-hour stay in New York City as he experiences the phoniness of the adult world while attempting to deal with the death of his younger brother, an overwhelming compulsion to lie and troubling sexual experiences. To Kill a Mockingbird (1960) by Harper Lee is about racial injustice and southern discrimination. Gender roles in the Deep South were also addressed in the book. It won the Pulitzer Prize. Catch-22 by Joseph Heller was published in 1961. The phrase catch-22 has entered the English language. It refers to an unsolvable logic puzzle. Examples You lose your glasses but you cant see to look for them. If you lock your keys in your car, you cant unlock the car to get them. Great American Bestsellers: Books that Shaped America The last three lectures of this series were shown at Live Oak Hall on Aug. 15.

For story and additional photo see Page 5. Electrical strikes and surges from lightning can destroy your home, cause severe injury and even death. With the recent lightning strikes affecting residents across the nation, the nonprofit Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH) offers the following tips to help families reduce their risk of lightning injuries and protect their home. Protect Your Family Stay alert and listen carefully for the first signs of lightning or thunder. Remember, If Thunder Roars, Go Indoors. Seek shelter. Lightning often hits before the rain begins, so dont wait for the rain to start before leaving. If outdoors Avoid water, high ground and open spaces. Stay away from metal objects including wires, fences and motors. Find shelter in a sizable building or in a fully enclosed metal vehicle. Completely close the windows and dont lean on the doors. Do not get under a small canopy, small picnic shelter, or stand near trees. If you cannot take shelter indoors, crouch down with your feet together and place your hands over your ears to minimize hearing damage from the thunder. Stay at least 15 feet away from other people. If indoors Avoid water and stay away from Lightning in area? Here are some safety tips PLEASESEELIGHTNING, PAGE3 One more time, sales tax effort diesA last-minute proposal put forth by County Commissioner Earl Arnett to put a half-percent sales tax on the November ballot ran afoul of election deadlines, and the twoyear proposal died without a vote on Wednesday at the County Commission meeting. Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox spoke and reiterated that the proposed ordinance had to be submitted by 9 a.m. on Aug. 27, the day after the primary. The proposed ordinance called for a public hearing on Sept. 2. It appears the one mill property tax for schools will be the only levy on the ballot. 000J2L0
