Construction has started at Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Community Hospital on major projects designed to meet community need for expanded health care services. At dual groundbreaking ceremonies Wednesday morning, Ocala Health leadership announced that patient capacity at both Ocala Regional and West Marion will increase by a combined 46 patient beds. The $45 million investment by HCA, Ocala Healths parent company, represents nearly 75,000 square feet of space dedicated to patient care. Anticipated completion date for both projects is fall 2016. Ocala Health Board of Trustees, employees, physicians and local officials gathered Wednesday morning at the emergency entrance of West Marion Community Hospital where CEO Ginger Carroll led festivities and outlined construction specifics. This is the first major expansion at West Marion since it opened in September 2002. A new cardiac cath/special procedures lab will provide diagnostic and interventional cardiovascular procedures and interventional radiology services. An additional 24 medical/surgical beds on the second and third floors of the hospitals east wing will accommodate the increased number of inpatients we are treating. In addition, the existing laboratory will be expanded by approximately 800 square feet, doubling its current size, Carroll said. A short time later, attendees gathered at Ocala Regional Medical Center for a similar ceremony, with expansion creating more critical care beds. There will be a net increase of 24 licensed beds at West Marion, from 70 to 94. When completed, an additional 75 health care workers are expected to be employed to staff the new patient care areas. Construction already under way as groundbreaking is held Entertainment at CherrywoodGator Bone Band with Lon and Lis williamson and Gabe Valla performs at Cherrywood.

He tells stories of famous men who struck it rich and some kind of infamous poor souls who didnt. Learn how the railroads played an intricate part in the development of our wonderful Central Florida area; work switches inside the station that once witnessed a seemingly endless passing of steam locomotives and freight cars or just sit and listen. Sam will make your visit very educational and interesting, to say the least. Some say that Seminole Indian spirits still haunt the damp; foggy nights around the station as they sit at dim campfires and whisper about the great battles of Gaines; Dade and Clinch. Others claim that Confederate and Union ghosts still can be heard in the recesses of the old station talking of the early days on Floridas frontier. Numerous articles, documents and artifacts on bygone days in Dunnellons history await those who visit the old train station. Every Tuesday Boomtown Sam is in attendance and will share his knowledge and a fresh cup of coffee with everyone who walks through the door. His personality and ability to tell a story is captivating. After just a few short minutes with Sam you will walk away with a wealth of knowledge and be inspired to learn more of our rich history.. Sam Scott has been volunteering for over six years; sharing his love for Florida history and in particular Florida Crackers with everyone he comes in contact with. He takes part in Cracker Days at Rainbow Springs State Park and Boomtown Days in Dunnellon. In a show of gratitude and respect from those around him; Sam has twice been elected Mayor of Boomtown; an honor that he gratefully accepts. When Gloria Williams stepped down from her duties as volunteer for the Historical Society; Sam stepped up. Guest speakers; lecturers and authors are frequent guests to the museum. On Aug. 21 author Bob Grenier held a book signing and lecture at the museum. Central Floridas Civil War Veterans is the title of his new book which deals with the veterans; both Yankee and Confederate, who settled here after the war. Bobs book is a tribute to the families as well as the veterans because it was the women and children who did much to civilize this area of the Florida frontier. For one hour he gave a riveting presentation that was enjoyed by the two dozen guests. There are many up coming events planned for the Historical Society and at the museum. You can learn more about these events by calling Boomtown Sam at (352) 229-1030 or better yet; stop by on Tuesday between 9 and 2 and meet this colorful and delightful individual face to face.

FORUMCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The College of Central Florida will host Hold Back the Waters: A Celebration of Will McLean and Florida Folk Saturday, Sept. 20. The festival will be held 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the center lawn at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. Florida has a strong tradition of preserving the states heritage through folk song, and no songwriter was better at this than Will McLean, the father of Florida folk, said Dr. Ron Cooper, CF professor of Humanities. Participants will enjoy a day of music, storytelling and discussion about Florida folk music and history. The festival will feature musicians Dr. Sarah Satterfield, Dr. Peter Smith, Jon Semmes and Chris Kahl. There will be performances by the Ocal Storytelling Guild and a storytelling workshop. Many of McLeans songs express concern for preservation of Floridas natural features, and the festival will include historical and environmental exhibitors including the Marion County Historical and Archaeological Museum, Citrus County Historical Society, Conservation Trust of Florida, Silver River Museum and many more. CF holds the Will McLean Collection in its Learning Resources Center. During the festival the collection will be on display in the library and accompanied by talks from the library staff. For information or to enter the songwriting contests, which will be held in conjunction with the festival, contact Cooper at cooperr@cf.edu or 352854-2322, ext. 1295.

McLean Festival planned Read the classifieds September 5 marks 10 years since Hurricane Frances hit Florida and brings timely reminders to be prepared for hurricanes. Floridians were still recovering from Hurricane Charley as Frances bore down on the east coast of Florida three weeks later. Frances was as big as the state of Texas and twice the size of Charley. As Frances moved slowly over the ocean and approached the coast, orders were given and 2.8 million residents of 41 Florida counties evacuatedthe largest evacuation in Floridas history since Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Frances made landfall on Floridas east coast as a Category 2 hurricane early on Sept. 5, crossed the Florida Peninsula, and later that night made a second landfall in the Big Bend region. While Hurricane Frances is remembered for the evacuation, situations requiring people to leave their homes, can happen without warning. Hurricanes may give residents a day or two to move to a safer location, but a fire, chemical spill or transportation accident may require immediate evacuation. Many disasters allow little time for people to gather even the most basic necessities, which is why planning now is essential.Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to PrepareSeptember marks National Preparedness Month, and this weeks anniversary of Hurricane Frances is an opportune time to plan how to Reconnect and Reunite with Family Following a Disaster. Take time this week to talk with your family about where you will meet and how you will contact each other if separated. Develop plans, including knowing your evacuation zone and routes, ahead of the next severe storm. Information to help you make a family emergency plan is at www.ready.gov or www.listo.gov. Start your plan today! National Preparedness Month culminates on September 30 with Americas PrepareAthon! Check out the information and plan to participate. Following Hurricane Frances, FEMA provided: Nearly $412 million in grants to more than 229,500 applicants through the Individuals and Households Program for lodging expenses, rental assistance, minor home repairs and other needs assistance; Nearly $2.5 million for Disaster Unemployment Assistance; More than $649 million for emergency protective measures, or for the repair or replacement of public infrastructure and public utilities; More than $99 million in funding for mitigation projects to help reduce damage from future storms. The U.S. Small Business Administration provided: More than $227 million in low-interest disaster loans to nearly 11,000 renters and homeowners; More than $200 million to nearly 2,000 businesses. FEMAs mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

All contributions are subject to editing for clarity, taste, and style.Member of the Community Papers of Florida Stress is the underlying factor in the development of disease and disorders in this culture. In times of stress, adrenaline and cortisol flood the bloodstream and impair immune function. We create our own stress by how we are living, trying to have it all, career, family and a loving relationship. The more we strive, the greater the stress. The higher our expectations, the more tension results when they are not met. There are a number of different stressors, loss, illness and death top the list. 1. Emotional deadlines at work, difficult relationships, loneliness, feelings of unworthiness, worry. 2. Nutritional we turn to alcohol and sugary foods to fill the void and both create havoc in the system. 3. Physical lack of activity creates dullness and pain and impairs the organs. Surgery is very traumatic and recovery difficult especially for seniors. Motion is the lotion! It activates endorphins which lift your mood. So go take a walk! 4. Sensory we live in a loud, visually over-stimulating world and all this technology can make us crazy and give us a heart condition! It is not easy to balance stress, but anything worthwhile having is never easy. However, its well worth the effort. Socrates said: the unexamined life is not worth living. So, at least once a week, stop and review your lifestyle. Ask yourself: What feeling am I trying to achieve? Is this giving me pleasure or creating more stress? Acceptance of what is, rather than wanting things to be a certain way, is not a defeatist attitude. Its sensible and a more easeful way of dealing with life. You have to prioritize with everything, especially when you are overwhelmed. If the risk outweighs the reward, dont do it! You must think before you act. Impulsive behavior can do more harm than good. To feel good and relaxed is a beautiful feeling, so work at it. Walk to balance the hormones. Think only positive thoughts. Associate with people who enhance your life. Get out of yourself and serve others. Breathe deeply, take time for meditation and prayer and do some yoga, which combines all three. Peace is your true nature. Anything that disturbs your peace should be eliminated. I wish you all radiant health, abundance and love.

How can Florida agriculture continue to provide quality solutions for the future? Teenagers across the Sunshine State will address this question in the 2014 Florida Farm Bureau Youth Speech Contest. Contestants must present a five minute speech on the assigned topic without using visual aids. Each year the Florida Farm Bureau Federation Womens Leadership Program sponsors a Youth Speech Contest starting at the county level. The winner of each county contest competes in a district contest and the eight district winners will compete in the state competition at the Florida Farm Bureau Annual Meeting in October.

When the day care director gave the mother a tour of the facilities she asked about the curriculum. Well, said the director, eyes twinkling, today we are studying the childrens favorite philosopher, Play-Doh.For the dogsA grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home when a fire truck zoomed past with a Dalmatian dog sitting in the front seat. The children started discussing the dogs duties. They use him to keep crowds back, said one child. No, said another. Hes just for good luck. A third child brought the argument to a close. They use the dogs, she said firmly, to find the fire hydrants.Dj vu all over againThe daughter said, I really appreciate you and Dad watching my kids today, Mom. Later, Grandma said, Im really worn out. I remember being exhausted when our kids were babies. Now, with grandkids, Im exhausted all over again! Grandpa replied, Its to be expected.

Friday, September 5, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, September 5, 2014 www.smcitizen.com In 1978 Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The days purpose is to honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their childrens children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer. Wandering through Pun Alley we run into some funny stories that go along with being grandparents and make us glad we can turn the little darlins back to their parents after a day or two.College EducationA grandmother was pushing her grandchild around Walmart in a buggy. Each time she put something in the basket, she would say, And heres something for you, Diploma or This will make a cute little outfit for you, Diploma and so on. Eventually, a bewildered shopper who had heard all this, finally asked, Why do you keep calling your grandchild Diploma? The grandmother replied, I sent my daughter to college and this is what she came home with.Sure CureA woman went to the doctors office where she was seen by one of the younger doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out, screaming as she ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was and she told him her story. After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room. He marched down the hallway to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard. Whats the matter with you? the older doctor demanded. Mrs. Reid is 74 years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren and you told her she was pregnant? The younger doctor continued writing and without looking up said, Does she still have the hiccups?Power of the WordA grandmother had just returned home after visiting her daughter and grandchildren when she caught a man robbing her house. She yelled, Stop! Acts 2:38! Repent and be baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven. The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done. As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he was curious and asked the burglar, Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you. Scripture? replied the burglar. She said she had an ax and two 38s.GrandIf your baby is beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule, burps on demand, and an angel all the time, youre the grandma. One thing about children they never go around showing snapshots of their grandparents. An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again. Anything longer than that, and you start to age quickly. Who said old age doesnt have its advantages; who but a grandpa can sing while brushing his teeth. The simplest toy, one that even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent. There are two kinds of people who dont say much: Those who are quiet and those who talk a lot. The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy. Time to honor grandparents in Pun Alley Pun Alley Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE24 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARKMore from Hospital groundbreakingWest Marion Community Hospital held a groundbreaking for an expansion project Wednesday. At the left is Chamber and Economic Partnership president and CEO Kevin Sheilley and above is Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn.

Friday, September 5, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 5, 2014 For years President Obama has been specific about his mission to level the uneven risks and rewards of our economic system. In his book The Audacity of Hope (July 2008), he said: If you are healthy or wealthy, or just plain lucky, then you will become more so. If you are poor or sick or catch a bad break, you have nobody to look to for help. So government should ensure that everyone receives a fair share of income and care. To initiate the Affordable Care Act (ACT), he said: Perhaps our most pressing task is to fix our broken health care system. He added: Medicare and Medicaid really are broken, and without changes by 2050 these two entitlements along with Social Security could consume as large a share of our national economy as the entire federal budget does today. Bundling health care into a single package has been on his mind for a long time. A recent column by Sally C. Pipes, a health care researcher at Pacific Research Institute, discussed the likelihood that the Affordable Care Act will kill job-based health plans over the next decade. Assurance that employees would be able to keep their employer provided health plans was one of a dozen bent or broken promises made to get the ACT passed into law. Ms. Pipes suggests that although the IRS may not want employers to dump their workers into the ACTs insurance exchanges, the designers of the law seem to want just that. Its likely shes right. Mr. Obama has an uncompleted goal for nationalized health care and uncertainty about how to finance it in the years ahead. President Obama mourned the unsuccessful 1993 effort of Bill and Hillary Clinton to create a system of universal health coverage. Long before his presidency Mr. Obama and his health care advisors wanted a single-payer national health-care plan. We believe they are still dedicated to a single-payer system, and that it would include Medicare and Medicaid, but of course exclude all plans designed for the lifetime good health of members of the Washington, D.C. aristocracy.. Although he has only two years left in his presidency, if by some political miracle Mr. Obama were to receive a friendly congress in November, our guess is he would seize the opportunity to propose incorporation of Medicare, Medicaid, Romney care, and employer care into a single program of nationalized health care appropriately named Obamacare for posterity. Random thoughts over a holiday weekend: My wife and I were sitting in the living room watching television when one of the brutally negative commercials involving the governors race. Her comment was Im getting tired of all these commercials. Guess what, I said. Youve got three more months of these. Rick Scott and Charlie Crist just won their primaries. I dont usually tell people how I vote, but in this case I found another Republican to vote for instead of Scott, even though I knew they didnt have a chance. I think there are some Democrats who feel that way, too. A woman named Rich got quite a few votes over Crist in the primary. I cant believe we couldnt find viable candidates to run against both of these people. They both deserve to be put out to pasture. * Spent a lot of time watching the Little League World Series. The two teams I picked both lost the Saturday game, so I watched with some disinterest on Sunday. ESPN and ABC announcers are constantly gushing with praise for Little League, as if everything was greater than the invention of sliced bread. Little League likes to emphasize that it is composed of volunteers, including the umpires. But after watching the men in blue, I have a message for Little League: You get what you pay for. I have seen high school and college students in local leagues umpire more consistently behind the plate. So having volunteers is great, but guys, open your wallets when you are choosing umpires. The games and the attitude of the players will be better for it. * How do you spell Walmart? I see it all sorts of ways in news release, other publications, etc. Some spell it Wal-Mart, others Wal-mart. I went and looked at the store sign and took a picture of it. So here it is. And despite what you read elsewhere, well continue spelling it the same way weve spelled it for a couple of years Walmart (but well leave off the asterisk at the end). * Here are some scam notes: Phone calls that say We want to talk with you about your credit card account. There is no problem, however Thats when you want to hang up. Ive been inundated with emails lately that say Notice to appear in court. Im assuming if you open the e-mail or attachment, bad things happen to your computer. If someone wants you to appear in court, you can be sure theyll have a deputy knock at your door. When you see those emails, dont open them, just hit the delete button.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Some Johnny-come-latelies have just realized what many of us had known or suspected for years Waldo Police had a quota for catching speeders, giving full credence to those of us who had been calling it a speed trap. When the police have a quota, it means that they are going to stop enough drivers to reach that goal, even if the vehicle in question may just barely be going over the speed limit, which dropped suddenly within the city limits. There were billboards warning people of a speed trap in that town and in another town further up the road called Lawtey. After the Internet gained widespread acceptance, the names Waldo and Lawtey were prominently displayed on speed trap websites. Now there are officers suspended and a state investigation has been launched. So you can probably not worry about being pulled over, even if you think youre doing the speed limit. But still Havent there been times when youre driving on State Road 200, doing the speed limit, and someone goes by you in a flash, when you wish that just up ahead there are the flashing blue lights of a speed trap, or an FHP trooper is hiding behind a billboard and pulls out to give a citation to that speeder? Admit it, you have wished that, havent you? The way some people drive, a few quotas on State Road 200 might not be a bad thing. Nothing else seems to work toward slowing the speeders down. Maybe if the word spread that State Road 200 was a speed trap with law enforcement having quotas, people would let up on the gas as they drive down the highway. We know our law enforcement personnel are spread thin, and probably dont have time for such things. But some of our NASCAR pretenders dont have to know that. The racetrack drivers need to slow down, and whatever it takes is what we have to do. Theres an old saying were all familiar with speed kills. So lets slow the cars down and save some lives. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Speed trap? Just slow down Ads, umps, spelling and some scams Whats next for Americans in health care? READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Lack of good jobsAddressing this economic ill is even more urgent as time goes on given the countrys changing demographics. People of color, who have long been excluded from meaningful economic opportunity, will be the majority of the population by mid-century. A strategy to grow good jobs is the path to a stronger and more equitable economy. First, create new good jobs by investing in infrastructure and entrepreneurship and target these efforts in lowwealth communities. Second, transform low-wage jobs into good jobs by raising the minimum wage and expanding the number of employers whose business model emphasizes treating their workers well. Third, aggressively dismantle barriers to employment and connect vulnerable people to decent jobs. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunAdvantage ScottWhy is it acceptable for the news media, print radio and television to refer to Charlie Crist as former Republican governor turned independent turned Democrat and refer to Rick Scott as Republican governor. Is it really fair to disparage Charlie Crist as a flip-flopper because he saw the damage the Republicans were doing to our state and changed his political designation to Democrat. If the news media truly wanted to be fair they would refer to the present governor of Florida as Republican Governor "I take the fifth" Rick Scott.

My schedule recently called for me to do some travel involving airplanes. I am not a fan of airplanes, but airports are something else altogether. They seem to be like a mall. Whatever you want, you can find it in an airport. The bigger the airport, the more you can find. I was sitting in an airport restaurant waiting for my plane and simply enjoying myself. I watched the people go by and inside I was laughing and making fun of them. I play a little game when I am all by myself. If only they knew what I was thinking about as they walked by, they would come over and give me a stern look. I have never seen a person that I cannot make fun of, including that raspy looking person in my bathroom mirror. It is the sort of game you can play when you are all by yourself with nothing else to do. I was sipping my umpteenth cup of coffee when I happened to notice several people walking by who were sneezing. At first I did not think too much of it, but then I began to notice more and more people sneezing. Is there a sneezing epidemic going on that I have not heard of yet? I tried not to pay attention to it and went back to my game of Who Can I Make Fun of Now? Maybe it was programmed into my head at the time, but I could not help noticing every other person walking by heading for an airplane was either sneezing or sniffling or coughing. I thought to myself, Self, I sure hope they are not on our plane? I finally got to my gate and waited to board the airplane and then take off. I was checking some things on my cell phone when I heard a person behind me sneeze. Not only did they sneeze, but they sneezed half a dozen times and it just about drove me crazy. I know the road to crazy for me is rather a short drive, but I hate taking that road. It dawned on me at the time that the person behind me doing all the sneezing was also waiting to get on the same plane I was going to board in a few minutes. Why cant they check your sneezing at the gates before you come in so that you do not have to take it on board the plane? I mean, after all, they check for everything else! Finally, my number was called and I began boarding the airplane. I noticed in front of me was the man who was going all of the sneezing. I whispered to myself, Self, I hope he has certainly got all of the sneeze out of him. We finally were seated and it takes me quite a while to get buckled in. Whoever designed planes designed them with the seven Disney dwarfs in mind. To get that belt around me and buckled is a great accomplishment. I would not say I am oversized, just that I am post thin, and by the time I squeezed myself into the seat and strapped myself in with the buckle it is about all I can do to breathe. On this flight, I happen to be seated in the middle. There would be a person on my right and a person on my left. It was at that time I prayed that they would be skinny and healthy. Two gentlemen came in, one on my left, the other on my right. By the time we all got in and buckled, none of us could move one way or the other. We smiled at each other and then the plane took off and we were airborne. I happened to notice at the time that nobody on the plane was sneezing, coughing, or even sniffling. I sighed a deep sigh and then it happened to me. I am not quite sure how all of this happens, but I felt the in the bottom of my lungs a pre-sneeze condition. At that point, I knew exactly what was coming and I did not know how to deal with it. When you sneeze on an airplane, you cannot turn to your left or to your right because people are sitting there. What is a person to do? If I look up and sneeze, it will all come down on me. Then I remembered the people I knew when they had to sneeze, sneezed into their arm. I raised my right arm just as I was about to sneeze, and boy did I sneeze. Whenever I sneeze, it always has to be in triplets. I sneezed three times in my arm and when I come out from that arm, it was drooping and dripping with all sorts of gunk that came from somewhere deep inside of me. What do you do with gunk like that on an airplane? As I was trying to think about what to do, a verse of Scripture came to my mind. How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying (1 Corinthians 14:26). It is hard to discipline yourself to do only those things that edify other people. That is the challenge of the Christian life.Rev.

Friday, September 5, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 29~ Friday, September 5, 2014 www.smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES We all want to eat more vegetables and in the summer, when farmers markets and grocery stores are filled with fresh, colorful produce, its easier than ever. From juicy red tomatoes and yellow sweet corn to vibrant green broccoli, seasonal produce can be even more enjoy able with the addition of spices and herbs. Im always thinking about ways to make vegetables taste great and be more healthful and exciting other than just adding butter and salt, said registered dietitian Wendy Bazilian. Adding spices and herbs is easy to do, and they only cost pennies per serving. Plus, theyre already in your kitchen. To add flavor to everyday vegetable favorites like zucchini and carrots, Bazilian recommends an easy rule of thumb: start with 1/4 teaspoon of spices and herbs, such as basil and oregano, per cup of veggies, along with a splash of citrus juice or olive oil. You can also dial up the flavor depending on the cooking method, Bazilian said. Roasting vegetables like broccoli and tomatoes creates a caramelized flavor that pairs deliciously with garlic, basil, oregano, honey and white vinegar. Grilling vegetables gives a smoky, charred flavor. Or, let the natural flavor of green beans shine by steaming them with rosemary and thyme. Try these simple flavor tips to season your favorite vegetables and visit www.McCormick.com for more ideas you can use all year long. Mixed Vegetable GrillServings: 6 1 tablespoon light brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Basil Leaves 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder 1/8 teaspoon McCormick Ground Black Pepper 2 tablespoons olive oil 6 cups assorted cut-up vegetables, such as asparagus, bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, red onion and small sweet potato Mix brown sugar, basil, salt, garlic powder, and pepper in small bowl. In large bowl, drizzle oil over vegetables; toss to coat well. Add seasoning mixture; toss to coat well. Place vegetables in grill basket or rack, or thread onto skewers. Grill over medium heat 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, turning occasionally.

Friday, September 5, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 5, 2014 www.smcitizen.com While many of the students in our southern states have been in school for a few weeks now, across the country, September is Back to School time. For Jewish parents, sending their children off to school is an important function of being a good parent and it is a value instilled in Judaism itself. Wherever Jews have lived and wherever they were permitted, Jews always sent their children to local schools and where this was prohibited, there were Jewish schools to fill the void. Jewish education dates back to the earliest days of peoplehood. The Jewish religion places much emphasis on learning Gods commandments so that studying the Torah meant that parents had to instruct their children. In the Jewish watchword of faith, the Shema, the prayer instructs parents to teach the words of the Torah to their children and to recite the Oneness of God upon arising and retiring. This commandment has been faithfully carried out through the ages down to our own times. As the faith evolved, the Levites took over Jewish education during First Temple times. Ezra instituted public reading of the Torah on market days (a custom still followed today) and this led to the establishment of Jewish educational institutions. In Second Temple times, Simeon ben Shetah organized schools for boys aged 15-17 while high priest Joshua ben Gamla (C.E.65) established elementary schools. During the Talmudic period, Jewish education advanced from the basic heder or beit sefer to the beit midrash. This system of education became the basis for Jewish instruction even unto our own time. The nostalgic picture of little children learning their aleph bais (alphabet) taught by the aged rebbe, conjures up a scene often depicted in Yiddish song and story. Adult education often took the form of discourse with a learned scholar discussing the finer points of Talmud and Torah. While instruction was generally given to boys, girls too did receive education but on a more elementary level since their role was mainly involved with raising children and keeping a kosher home. During the Middle Ages, Jewish education was financed by the community and most Jews were literate. Higher education took the form of the yeshivah, a higher learning academy. Secular education was minimal during this era of religious fervor. As time progressed and Jews were allowed more freedoms, Jewish children began to attend secular schools and religious education was relegated to times after public education. These supplementary schools often run by synagogues would meet from five to one or two times a week, preparing boys for their bar mitzvah. Some children did not receive any Jewish education at all, their families preferring to shed the old ghetto mentality for the modern world. After World War II and the devastating effects of the Holocaust on the Jewish people, the importance of Jewish education became forefront in the battle to continue Jewish survival. Jewish day schools and yeshivot sprang up all over Western countries especially in the United States. Each of the major branches of Judaism has their own day schools and there are many independent ones as well ranging from traditional to liberal. In these schools, secular as well as religious studies are taught and girls and boys are given equal opportunities as guided by the branches of Judaism that support the institutions. In the supplementary schools run by congregations, the curriculum is less intense since only religious studies are pursued. Girls receive instruction for bat mitzvah; boys for bar mitzvah and tragically most quit after their respective ceremonies, thus leaving school with a 13 year olds view of Judaism. In my 30 years as a Jewish educator, I saw many changes in Jewish education, from apathy on the part of parents to full involvement from three times a week instruction, down to one or two. I also did less frontal teaching as time wore on, with more hands on and was always coming up with new and creative ways to teach the holidays and HeReadin, Ritin and Torah Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE11 Age may wrinkle the face, but lack of enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

My trips to Israel and the educational seminars run by our local commission on Jewish education were also wonderful resources for my classes. As I look back on my career, my experiences with my students were nothing like most of us experienced in the s and s. More than one parent would approach me and tell me how much their child actually liked Hebrew school. I wasnt surprised. We did a lot of fun things in those years, plays and educational games. While many of the things I taught my students was wisdom that went back 2,000 years I always reminded them of this: While studying Torah teachings would not get you a job, say, in medical school, it would prepare you for life and would help and lead you to make right and ethical choices. This is the core of Jewish education, in my opinion, that we inspire students to become responsible, moral individuals dedicated to justice and ensuring peace.

Bocce, shuffleboard; Wellie Wanging and Corn Hole. Most people know how Bocce and shuffleboard are played but let me explain the other two events. Wellie Wanging is a game that was imported from the British Isles. When the miners returned home from a long days work underground they would take off their Wellington boots and throw them into the corner of the house. Eventually some of these stalwart pit workers had a contest to see who could throw; or wing, their boot the farthest. Of course when a Welshman; Englishman; Irishman or Scotsman says wing, it comes out Wang; hence Wellie Wanging. Corn Hole is a simple bean bag game where players toss bean bags into various holes cut in a plywood board. Different slots have different point values and naturally everyone tries to get the highest score. This years contest will take place on Oct. 18 behind our clubhouse. Beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until 2 p.m. teams will play for first; second and third place medals and of course; bragging rights. Naturally there will be soft drinks and water available along with hot dogs and chips. The water will be free to all participants and the spectators will pay a nominal fee. No one ever goes hungry or thirsty at these events. Approximately eight volunteers are needed to help officiate at the games so if you would like to help out or if you would like to compete; contact Holly at 873-8223 or Janice at 509-4463 to sign up. This event is one of the highlights of the season here at Cherrywood. SongbirdsDo you find yourselves humming to the old tunes on the radio or singing in the shower? Well, why dont you join our Cherrywood Songbirds and have fun while you serenade. All voices are welcomed so please dont hesitate to become a member of our talented and entertaining group. The Songbirds have had great success performing throughout Ocala at parties; clubs; nursing homes and other functions. We specialize in show tunes; Broadway hits and oldies but goodies.

The evening, hosted by Paula and Bill Derkowski, was very well attended. Our hosts greeted us at the door and had name tags available for everyone. Seating was very comfortable in groups of 10, all placed together in a central area so participants could visit and chat with neighbors. It was a great opportunity to meet some of our newer residents and of course, the food and service were wonderful.Performing ArtsThe Performing Arts Company of Oak Run announces ticket sales and a change in cast.

Of course if you can not make these dates, you may purchase tickets through Billie Gabel at 352-237-1104. Weve mentioned before that PACOR is a friendly group with many members who share love and support for one another. Its with sadness that we announce that Arline Raguso, who had been selected to play Dolly Levi, will not be able to continue. We all know our personal responsibilities and what goes on in our day to day lives are most important and its with that love for Arline that we will continue, said Howard Spies, publicist for the company. Arline is a long-time member and has, over the years, made wonderful contributions to the group. We look forward to her continued involvement, added Mr. Spies. Now, as they say, on with the show.

PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE17 Our Social Committee made the last of our Summer Fest events a smash hit. A sellout crowd found the food both plentiful and delicious and the featured entertainment; Gator Bone Band top quality. Residents more than 250 strong came out to enjoy a meal of bratwurst with all the trimmings and iced tea and lemonade. The meat was sweet and juicy and the potato salad and cabbage was equally as delicious. There was enough for second helpings for those who wanted a bit more after their first trip through the line. Everything that was supposed to be hot was as the volunteers managed to get everyone through the serving line in a half an hour. Thats no easy feat with so many hungry people but our Social Committee managed. Entertainment was provided by the Gator Bone Band. Lis and Lon Williamson have been playing together for more than 40 years. Both are song writers with Lon having won the Will McLean Song Writers contest in 2007 and 2014. Lon is also an instrument builder and sound engineer. Lis is a guitarist and lead singer for the group. Her voice has a ring and purity that is a cross between Joan Baez and Mary Travis; hitting all the notes and words with a clarity and expression that seemingly comes straight from her heart. Gabe Valla is the third member of the trio. He plays multiple instruments but primarily hes the lead guitarist for the group. His speed on the guitar is only matched by his ability to play the mandolin and banjo. He also sings and brings a wealth of talent to this trio. He has been a member of the group for more than 20 years. Lis describes the Gator Bone Band as a family of friends. She credits their love for music and each other for their long term relationship. I would add that each of them is extremely talented and compliment each others style which gives them a unique and beautiful musical quality. You cant break up a group that has that much going for it. For more information or to book Gator Bone contact Lis at gatorbone@gmail.com. We thank Mario Zacco of Cherrywood Property Management for sponsoring this delightful evening of great food and entertainment. We also thank Jay and Fred OHern of our Social Committee and each of the volunteers for their hard work.

Bocce, shuffleboard; Wellie Wanging and Corn Hole. Most people know how Bocce and shuffleboard are played but let me explain the other two events. Wellie Wanging is a game that was imported from the British Isles. When the miners returned home from a long days work underground they would take off their Wellington boots and throw them into the corner of the house. Eventually some of these stalwart pit workers had a contest to see who could throw; or wing, their boot the farthest. Of course when a Welshman; Englishman; Irishman or Scotsman says wing, it comes out Wang; hence Wellie Wanging. Corn Hole is a simple bean bag game where players toss bean bags into various holes cut in a plywood board. Different slots have different point values and naturally everyone tries to get the highest score. This years contest will take place on Oct. 18 behind our clubhouse. Beginning at 10 a.m. and lasting until 2 p.m. teams will play for first; second and third place medals and of course; bragging rights. Naturally there will be soft drinks and water available along with hot dogs and chips. The water will be free to all participants and the spectators will pay a nominal fee. No one ever goes hungry or thirsty at these events. Approximately eight volunteers are needed to help officiate at the games so if you would like to help out or if you would like to compete; contact Holly at 873-8223 or Janice at 509-4463 to sign up. This event is one of the highlights of the season here at Cherrywood. SongbirdsDo you find yourselves humming to the old tunes on the radio or singing in the shower? Well, why dont you join our Cherrywood Songbirds and have fun while you serenade. All voices are welcomed so please dont hesitate to become a member of our talented and entertaining group. The Songbirds have had great success performing throughout Ocala at parties; clubs; nursing homes and other functions. We specialize in show tunes; Broadway hits and oldies but goodies.

My trips to Israel and the educational seminars run by our local commission on Jewish education were also wonderful resources for my classes. As I look back on my career, my experiences with my students were nothing like most of us experienced in the s and s. More than one parent would approach me and tell me how much their child actually liked Hebrew school. I wasnt surprised. We did a lot of fun things in those years, plays and educational games. While many of the things I taught my students was wisdom that went back 2,000 years I always reminded them of this: While studying Torah teachings would not get you a job, say, in medical school, it would prepare you for life and would help and lead you to make right and ethical choices. This is the core of Jewish education, in my opinion, that we inspire students to become responsible, moral individuals dedicated to justice and ensuring peace.

Friday, September 5, 2014 ~ 19 www.smcitizen.com 10~ Friday, September 5, 2014 www.smcitizen.com While many of the students in our southern states have been in school for a few weeks now, across the country, September is Back to School time. For Jewish parents, sending their children off to school is an important function of being a good parent and it is a value instilled in Judaism itself. Wherever Jews have lived and wherever they were permitted, Jews always sent their children to local schools and where this was prohibited, there were Jewish schools to fill the void. Jewish education dates back to the earliest days of peoplehood. The Jewish religion places much emphasis on learning Gods commandments so that studying the Torah meant that parents had to instruct their children. In the Jewish watchword of faith, the Shema, the prayer instructs parents to teach the words of the Torah to their children and to recite the Oneness of God upon arising and retiring. This commandment has been faithfully carried out through the ages down to our own times. As the faith evolved, the Levites took over Jewish education during First Temple times. Ezra instituted public reading of the Torah on market days (a custom still followed today) and this led to the establishment of Jewish educational institutions. In Second Temple times, Simeon ben Shetah organized schools for boys aged 15-17 while high priest Joshua ben Gamla (C.E.65) established elementary schools. During the Talmudic period, Jewish education advanced from the basic heder or beit sefer to the beit midrash. This system of education became the basis for Jewish instruction even unto our own time. The nostalgic picture of little children learning their aleph bais (alphabet) taught by the aged rebbe, conjures up a scene often depicted in Yiddish song and story. Adult education often took the form of discourse with a learned scholar discussing the finer points of Talmud and Torah. While instruction was generally given to boys, girls too did receive education but on a more elementary level since their role was mainly involved with raising children and keeping a kosher home. During the Middle Ages, Jewish education was financed by the community and most Jews were literate. Higher education took the form of the yeshivah, a higher learning academy. Secular education was minimal during this era of religious fervor. As time progressed and Jews were allowed more freedoms, Jewish children began to attend secular schools and religious education was relegated to times after public education. These supplementary schools often run by synagogues would meet from five to one or two times a week, preparing boys for their bar mitzvah. Some children did not receive any Jewish education at all, their families preferring to shed the old ghetto mentality for the modern world. After World War II and the devastating effects of the Holocaust on the Jewish people, the importance of Jewish education became forefront in the battle to continue Jewish survival. Jewish day schools and yeshivot sprang up all over Western countries especially in the United States. Each of the major branches of Judaism has their own day schools and there are many independent ones as well ranging from traditional to liberal. In these schools, secular as well as religious studies are taught and girls and boys are given equal opportunities as guided by the branches of Judaism that support the institutions. In the supplementary schools run by congregations, the curriculum is less intense since only religious studies are pursued. Girls receive instruction for bat mitzvah; boys for bar mitzvah and tragically most quit after their respective ceremonies, thus leaving school with a 13 year olds view of Judaism. In my 30 years as a Jewish educator, I saw many changes in Jewish education, from apathy on the part of parents to full involvement from three times a week instruction, down to one or two. I also did less frontal teaching as time wore on, with more hands on and was always coming up with new and creative ways to teach the holidays and HeReadin, Ritin and Torah Judis Journal Judi Siegal PLEASESEEJUDI, PAGE11 Age may wrinkle the face, but lack of enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

My schedule recently called for me to do some travel involving airplanes. I am not a fan of airplanes, but airports are something else altogether. They seem to be like a mall. Whatever you want, you can find it in an airport. The bigger the airport, the more you can find. I was sitting in an airport restaurant waiting for my plane and simply enjoying myself. I watched the people go by and inside I was laughing and making fun of them. I play a little game when I am all by myself. If only they knew what I was thinking about as they walked by, they would come over and give me a stern look. I have never seen a person that I cannot make fun of, including that raspy looking person in my bathroom mirror. It is the sort of game you can play when you are all by yourself with nothing else to do. I was sipping my umpteenth cup of coffee when I happened to notice several people walking by who were sneezing. At first I did not think too much of it, but then I began to notice more and more people sneezing. Is there a sneezing epidemic going on that I have not heard of yet? I tried not to pay attention to it and went back to my game of Who Can I Make Fun of Now? Maybe it was programmed into my head at the time, but I could not help noticing every other person walking by heading for an airplane was either sneezing or sniffling or coughing. I thought to myself, Self, I sure hope they are not on our plane? I finally got to my gate and waited to board the airplane and then take off. I was checking some things on my cell phone when I heard a person behind me sneeze. Not only did they sneeze, but they sneezed half a dozen times and it just about drove me crazy. I know the road to crazy for me is rather a short drive, but I hate taking that road. It dawned on me at the time that the person behind me doing all the sneezing was also waiting to get on the same plane I was going to board in a few minutes. Why cant they check your sneezing at the gates before you come in so that you do not have to take it on board the plane? I mean, after all, they check for everything else! Finally, my number was called and I began boarding the airplane. I noticed in front of me was the man who was going all of the sneezing. I whispered to myself, Self, I hope he has certainly got all of the sneeze out of him. We finally were seated and it takes me quite a while to get buckled in. Whoever designed planes designed them with the seven Disney dwarfs in mind. To get that belt around me and buckled is a great accomplishment. I would not say I am oversized, just that I am post thin, and by the time I squeezed myself into the seat and strapped myself in with the buckle it is about all I can do to breathe. On this flight, I happen to be seated in the middle. There would be a person on my right and a person on my left. It was at that time I prayed that they would be skinny and healthy. Two gentlemen came in, one on my left, the other on my right. By the time we all got in and buckled, none of us could move one way or the other. We smiled at each other and then the plane took off and we were airborne. I happened to notice at the time that nobody on the plane was sneezing, coughing, or even sniffling. I sighed a deep sigh and then it happened to me. I am not quite sure how all of this happens, but I felt the in the bottom of my lungs a pre-sneeze condition. At that point, I knew exactly what was coming and I did not know how to deal with it. When you sneeze on an airplane, you cannot turn to your left or to your right because people are sitting there. What is a person to do? If I look up and sneeze, it will all come down on me. Then I remembered the people I knew when they had to sneeze, sneezed into their arm. I raised my right arm just as I was about to sneeze, and boy did I sneeze. Whenever I sneeze, it always has to be in triplets. I sneezed three times in my arm and when I come out from that arm, it was drooping and dripping with all sorts of gunk that came from somewhere deep inside of me. What do you do with gunk like that on an airplane? As I was trying to think about what to do, a verse of Scripture came to my mind. How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying (1 Corinthians 14:26). It is hard to discipline yourself to do only those things that edify other people. That is the challenge of the Christian life.Rev.

Friday, September 5, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 29~ Friday, September 5, 2014 www.smcitizen.com FAMILY FEATURES We all want to eat more vegetables and in the summer, when farmers markets and grocery stores are filled with fresh, colorful produce, its easier than ever. From juicy red tomatoes and yellow sweet corn to vibrant green broccoli, seasonal produce can be even more enjoy able with the addition of spices and herbs. Im always thinking about ways to make vegetables taste great and be more healthful and exciting other than just adding butter and salt, said registered dietitian Wendy Bazilian. Adding spices and herbs is easy to do, and they only cost pennies per serving. Plus, theyre already in your kitchen. To add flavor to everyday vegetable favorites like zucchini and carrots, Bazilian recommends an easy rule of thumb: start with 1/4 teaspoon of spices and herbs, such as basil and oregano, per cup of veggies, along with a splash of citrus juice or olive oil. You can also dial up the flavor depending on the cooking method, Bazilian said. Roasting vegetables like broccoli and tomatoes creates a caramelized flavor that pairs deliciously with garlic, basil, oregano, honey and white vinegar. Grilling vegetables gives a smoky, charred flavor. Or, let the natural flavor of green beans shine by steaming them with rosemary and thyme. Try these simple flavor tips to season your favorite vegetables and visit www.McCormick.com for more ideas you can use all year long. Mixed Vegetable GrillServings: 6 1 tablespoon light brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Basil Leaves 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder 1/8 teaspoon McCormick Ground Black Pepper 2 tablespoons olive oil 6 cups assorted cut-up vegetables, such as asparagus, bell peppers, zucchini, yellow squash, red onion and small sweet potato Mix brown sugar, basil, salt, garlic powder, and pepper in small bowl. In large bowl, drizzle oil over vegetables; toss to coat well. Add seasoning mixture; toss to coat well. Place vegetables in grill basket or rack, or thread onto skewers. Grill over medium heat 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, turning occasionally. Kitchen tip: If using sweet potatoes, pierce them with fork and microwave two to three minutes on high or until tender. Roasted Broccoli & TomatoesServings: 4 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder 1/4 teaspoon McCormick Coarse Ground Black Pepper 12 ounces broccoli florets 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes 1 tablespoonwhitewinevinegar 2 teaspoons honey 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Basil Leaves 1/4 teaspoon McCormick Oregano Leaves Preheat oven to 425F.

Friday, September 5, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 5, 2014 For years President Obama has been specific about his mission to level the uneven risks and rewards of our economic system. In his book The Audacity of Hope (July 2008), he said: If you are healthy or wealthy, or just plain lucky, then you will become more so. If you are poor or sick or catch a bad break, you have nobody to look to for help. So government should ensure that everyone receives a fair share of income and care. To initiate the Affordable Care Act (ACT), he said: Perhaps our most pressing task is to fix our broken health care system. He added: Medicare and Medicaid really are broken, and without changes by 2050 these two entitlements along with Social Security could consume as large a share of our national economy as the entire federal budget does today. Bundling health care into a single package has been on his mind for a long time. A recent column by Sally C. Pipes, a health care researcher at Pacific Research Institute, discussed the likelihood that the Affordable Care Act will kill job-based health plans over the next decade. Assurance that employees would be able to keep their employer provided health plans was one of a dozen bent or broken promises made to get the ACT passed into law. Ms. Pipes suggests that although the IRS may not want employers to dump their workers into the ACTs insurance exchanges, the designers of the law seem to want just that. Its likely shes right. Mr. Obama has an uncompleted goal for nationalized health care and uncertainty about how to finance it in the years ahead. President Obama mourned the unsuccessful 1993 effort of Bill and Hillary Clinton to create a system of universal health coverage. Long before his presidency Mr. Obama and his health care advisors wanted a single-payer national health-care plan. We believe they are still dedicated to a single-payer system, and that it would include Medicare and Medicaid, but of course exclude all plans designed for the lifetime good health of members of the Washington, D.C. aristocracy.. Although he has only two years left in his presidency, if by some political miracle Mr. Obama were to receive a friendly congress in November, our guess is he would seize the opportunity to propose incorporation of Medicare, Medicaid, Romney care, and employer care into a single program of nationalized health care appropriately named Obamacare for posterity. Random thoughts over a holiday weekend: My wife and I were sitting in the living room watching television when one of the brutally negative commercials involving the governors race. Her comment was Im getting tired of all these commercials. Guess what, I said. Youve got three more months of these. Rick Scott and Charlie Crist just won their primaries. I dont usually tell people how I vote, but in this case I found another Republican to vote for instead of Scott, even though I knew they didnt have a chance. I think there are some Democrats who feel that way, too. A woman named Rich got quite a few votes over Crist in the primary. I cant believe we couldnt find viable candidates to run against both of these people. They both deserve to be put out to pasture. * Spent a lot of time watching the Little League World Series. The two teams I picked both lost the Saturday game, so I watched with some disinterest on Sunday. ESPN and ABC announcers are constantly gushing with praise for Little League, as if everything was greater than the invention of sliced bread. Little League likes to emphasize that it is composed of volunteers, including the umpires. But after watching the men in blue, I have a message for Little League: You get what you pay for. I have seen high school and college students in local leagues umpire more consistently behind the plate. So having volunteers is great, but guys, open your wallets when you are choosing umpires. The games and the attitude of the players will be better for it. * How do you spell Walmart? I see it all sorts of ways in news release, other publications, etc. Some spell it Wal-Mart, others Wal-mart. I went and looked at the store sign and took a picture of it. So here it is. And despite what you read elsewhere, well continue spelling it the same way weve spelled it for a couple of years Walmart (but well leave off the asterisk at the end). * Here are some scam notes: Phone calls that say We want to talk with you about your credit card account. There is no problem, however Thats when you want to hang up. Ive been inundated with emails lately that say Notice to appear in court. Im assuming if you open the e-mail or attachment, bad things happen to your computer. If someone wants you to appear in court, you can be sure theyll have a deputy knock at your door. When you see those emails, dont open them, just hit the delete button.Jim Clark is the editor of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messenger.

Some Johnny-come-latelies have just realized what many of us had known or suspected for years Waldo Police had a quota for catching speeders, giving full credence to those of us who had been calling it a speed trap. When the police have a quota, it means that they are going to stop enough drivers to reach that goal, even if the vehicle in question may just barely be going over the speed limit, which dropped suddenly within the city limits. There were billboards warning people of a speed trap in that town and in another town further up the road called Lawtey. After the Internet gained widespread acceptance, the names Waldo and Lawtey were prominently displayed on speed trap websites. Now there are officers suspended and a state investigation has been launched. So you can probably not worry about being pulled over, even if you think youre doing the speed limit. But still Havent there been times when youre driving on State Road 200, doing the speed limit, and someone goes by you in a flash, when you wish that just up ahead there are the flashing blue lights of a speed trap, or an FHP trooper is hiding behind a billboard and pulls out to give a citation to that speeder? Admit it, you have wished that, havent you? The way some people drive, a few quotas on State Road 200 might not be a bad thing. Nothing else seems to work toward slowing the speeders down. Maybe if the word spread that State Road 200 was a speed trap with law enforcement having quotas, people would let up on the gas as they drive down the highway. We know our law enforcement personnel are spread thin, and probably dont have time for such things. But some of our NASCAR pretenders dont have to know that. The racetrack drivers need to slow down, and whatever it takes is what we have to do. Theres an old saying were all familiar with speed kills. So lets slow the cars down and save some lives. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Speed trap? Just slow down Ads, umps, spelling and some scams Whats next for Americans in health care? READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Lack of good jobsAddressing this economic ill is even more urgent as time goes on given the countrys changing demographics. People of color, who have long been excluded from meaningful economic opportunity, will be the majority of the population by mid-century. A strategy to grow good jobs is the path to a stronger and more equitable economy. First, create new good jobs by investing in infrastructure and entrepreneurship and target these efforts in lowwealth communities. Second, transform low-wage jobs into good jobs by raising the minimum wage and expanding the number of employers whose business model emphasizes treating their workers well. Third, aggressively dismantle barriers to employment and connect vulnerable people to decent jobs. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunAdvantage ScottWhy is it acceptable for the news media, print radio and television to refer to Charlie Crist as former Republican governor turned independent turned Democrat and refer to Rick Scott as Republican governor. Is it really fair to disparage Charlie Crist as a flip-flopper because he saw the damage the Republicans were doing to our state and changed his political designation to Democrat. If the news media truly wanted to be fair they would refer to the present governor of Florida as Republican Governor "I take the fifth" Rick Scott.

And dont forget to indulge yourself in some personal time as well. GEM INI (May 21 to June 20) Your sense of loyalty to someone who asks for your help is commendable. But make sure there are no information gaps that should be filled in before you move too far too quickly. CA NC ER (June 21 to July 22) Dont let difficult people raise the Crabs ire levels this week. Avoid them if you can. If not, resist telling them off, even if you think they deserve it. Things improve by weeks end.

Do some discreet checking before jumping to conclusions. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Take time from your tasks and see if someone might be trying to reach out to you. You could be surprised to learn who it is and why you might want to reciprocate. L IBR A (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You still might want to do more investigating before taking on a new commitment. Later would not be the time to try to fill in any crucial gaps in what you need to know about it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A new opportunity should be carefully studied. It might offer some of the things youve been looking for. Or it could contain new possibilities you never considered. Check it out.

But if you stay with it, you could start to get your message out to many by the weeks end. CAP RICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Although family matters again take up a big chunk of time, the week also offers a chance to explore a new career move youd been contemplating for a while. A QU A RIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Applying your practicality (what does it offer me?) and your creativity (how can I improve on it?) could provide reasons for seriously considering that new offer. PI SCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The single set will find that keeping their romantic aspirations on high gives Cupid a better target to aim at.

Friday, September 5, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, September 5, 2014 www.smcitizen.com In 1978 Congress passed legislation proclaiming the first Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day. The days purpose is to honor grandparents, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their childrens children, and to help children become aware of strength, information, and guidance older people can offer. Wandering through Pun Alley we run into some funny stories that go along with being grandparents and make us glad we can turn the little darlins back to their parents after a day or two.College EducationA grandmother was pushing her grandchild around Walmart in a buggy. Each time she put something in the basket, she would say, And heres something for you, Diploma or This will make a cute little outfit for you, Diploma and so on. Eventually, a bewildered shopper who had heard all this, finally asked, Why do you keep calling your grandchild Diploma? The grandmother replied, I sent my daughter to college and this is what she came home with.Sure CureA woman went to the doctors office where she was seen by one of the younger doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out, screaming as she ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was and she told him her story. After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room. He marched down the hallway to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard. Whats the matter with you? the older doctor demanded. Mrs. Reid is 74 years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren and you told her she was pregnant? The younger doctor continued writing and without looking up said, Does she still have the hiccups?Power of the WordA grandmother had just returned home after visiting her daughter and grandchildren when she caught a man robbing her house. She yelled, Stop! Acts 2:38! Repent and be baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven. The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done. As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he was curious and asked the burglar, Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you. Scripture? replied the burglar. She said she had an ax and two 38s.GrandIf your baby is beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule, burps on demand, and an angel all the time, youre the grandma. One thing about children they never go around showing snapshots of their grandparents. An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again. Anything longer than that, and you start to age quickly. Who said old age doesnt have its advantages; who but a grandpa can sing while brushing his teeth. The simplest toy, one that even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent. There are two kinds of people who dont say much: Those who are quiet and those who talk a lot. The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

When the day care director gave the mother a tour of the facilities she asked about the curriculum. Well, said the director, eyes twinkling, today we are studying the childrens favorite philosopher, Play-Doh.For the dogsA grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home when a fire truck zoomed past with a Dalmatian dog sitting in the front seat. The children started discussing the dogs duties. They use him to keep crowds back, said one child. No, said another. Hes just for good luck. A third child brought the argument to a close. They use the dogs, she said firmly, to find the fire hydrants.Dj vu all over againThe daughter said, I really appreciate you and Dad watching my kids today, Mom. Later, Grandma said, Im really worn out. I remember being exhausted when our kids were babies. Now, with grandkids, Im exhausted all over again! Grandpa replied, Its to be expected.

In times of stress, adrenaline and cortisol flood the bloodstream and impair immune function. We create our own stress by how we are living, trying to have it all, career, family and a loving relationship. The more we strive, the greater the stress. The higher our expectations, the more tension results when they are not met. There are a number of different stressors, loss, illness and death top the list. 1. Emotional deadlines at work, difficult relationships, loneliness, feelings of unworthiness, worry. 2. Nutritional we turn to alcohol and sugary foods to fill the void and both create havoc in the system. 3. Physical lack of activity creates dullness and pain and impairs the organs. Surgery is very traumatic and recovery difficult especially for seniors. Motion is the lotion! It activates endorphins which lift your mood. So go take a walk! 4. Sensory we live in a loud, visually over-stimulating world and all this technology can make us crazy and give us a heart condition! It is not easy to balance stress, but anything worthwhile having is never easy. However, its well worth the effort. Socrates said: the unexamined life is not worth living. So, at least once a week, stop and review your lifestyle. Ask yourself: What feeling am I trying to achieve? Is this giving me pleasure or creating more stress? Acceptance of what is, rather than wanting things to be a certain way, is not a defeatist attitude. Its sensible and a more easeful way of dealing with life. You have to prioritize with everything, especially when you are overwhelmed. If the risk outweighs the reward, dont do it! You must think before you act. Impulsive behavior can do more harm than good. To feel good and relaxed is a beautiful feeling, so work at it. Walk to balance the hormones. Think only positive thoughts. Associate with people who enhance your life. Get out of yourself and serve others. Breathe deeply, take time for meditation and prayer and do some yoga, which combines all three. Peace is your true nature. Anything that disturbs your peace should be eliminated. I wish you all radiant health, abundance and love.

He tells stories of famous men who struck it rich and some kind of infamous poor souls who didnt. Learn how the railroads played an intricate part in the development of our wonderful Central Florida area; work switches inside the station that once witnessed a seemingly endless passing of steam locomotives and freight cars or just sit and listen. Sam will make your visit very educational and interesting, to say the least. Some say that Seminole Indian spirits still haunt the damp; foggy nights around the station as they sit at dim campfires and whisper about the great battles of Gaines; Dade and Clinch. Others claim that Confederate and Union ghosts still can be heard in the recesses of the old station talking of the early days on Floridas frontier. Numerous articles, documents and artifacts on bygone days in Dunnellons history await those who visit the old train station. Every Tuesday Boomtown Sam is in attendance and will share his knowledge and a fresh cup of coffee with everyone who walks through the door. His personality and ability to tell a story is captivating. After just a few short minutes with Sam you will walk away with a wealth of knowledge and be inspired to learn more of our rich history.. Sam Scott has been volunteering for over six years; sharing his love for Florida history and in particular Florida Crackers with everyone he comes in contact with. He takes part in Cracker Days at Rainbow Springs State Park and Boomtown Days in Dunnellon. In a show of gratitude and respect from those around him; Sam has twice been elected Mayor of Boomtown; an honor that he gratefully accepts. When Gloria Williams stepped down from her duties as volunteer for the Historical Society; Sam stepped up. Guest speakers; lecturers and authors are frequent guests to the museum. On Aug. 21 author Bob Grenier held a book signing and lecture at the museum. Central Floridas Civil War Veterans is the title of his new book which deals with the veterans; both Yankee and Confederate, who settled here after the war. Bobs book is a tribute to the families as well as the veterans because it was the women and children who did much to civilize this area of the Florida frontier. For one hour he gave a riveting presentation that was enjoyed by the two dozen guests. There are many up coming events planned for the Historical Society and at the museum. You can learn more about these events by calling Boomtown Sam at (352) 229-1030 or better yet; stop by on Tuesday between 9 and 2 and meet this colorful and delightful individual face to face.

FORUMCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The College of Central Florida will host Hold Back the Waters: A Celebration of Will McLean and Florida Folk Saturday, Sept. 20. The festival will be held 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the center lawn at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. Florida has a strong tradition of preserving the states heritage through folk song, and no songwriter was better at this than Will McLean, the father of Florida folk, said Dr. Ron Cooper, CF professor of Humanities. Participants will enjoy a day of music, storytelling and discussion about Florida folk music and history. The festival will feature musicians Dr. Sarah Satterfield, Dr. Peter Smith, Jon Semmes and Chris Kahl. There will be performances by the Ocal Storytelling Guild and a storytelling workshop. Many of McLeans songs express concern for preservation of Floridas natural features, and the festival will include historical and environmental exhibitors including the Marion County Historical and Archaeological Museum, Citrus County Historical Society, Conservation Trust of Florida, Silver River Museum and many more. CF holds the Will McLean Collection in its Learning Resources Center. During the festival the collection will be on display in the library and accompanied by talks from the library staff. For information or to enter the songwriting contests, which will be held in conjunction with the festival, contact Cooper at cooperr@cf.edu or 352854-2322, ext. 1295.

McLean Festival planned Read the classifieds September 5 marks 10 years since Hurricane Frances hit Florida and brings timely reminders to be prepared for hurricanes. Floridians were still recovering from Hurricane Charley as Frances bore down on the east coast of Florida three weeks later. Frances was as big as the state of Texas and twice the size of Charley. As Frances moved slowly over the ocean and approached the coast, orders were given and 2.8 million residents of 41 Florida counties evacuatedthe largest evacuation in Floridas history since Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Frances made landfall on Floridas east coast as a Category 2 hurricane early on Sept. 5, crossed the Florida Peninsula, and later that night made a second landfall in the Big Bend region. While Hurricane Frances is remembered for the evacuation, situations requiring people to leave their homes, can happen without warning. Hurricanes may give residents a day or two to move to a safer location, but a fire, chemical spill or transportation accident may require immediate evacuation. Many disasters allow little time for people to gather even the most basic necessities, which is why planning now is essential.Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to PrepareSeptember marks National Preparedness Month, and this weeks anniversary of Hurricane Frances is an opportune time to plan how to Reconnect and Reunite with Family Following a Disaster. Take time this week to talk with your family about where you will meet and how you will contact each other if separated. Develop plans, including knowing your evacuation zone and routes, ahead of the next severe storm. Information to help you make a family emergency plan is at www.ready.gov or www.listo.gov. Start your plan today! National Preparedness Month culminates on September 30 with Americas PrepareAthon! Check out the information and plan to participate. Following Hurricane Frances, FEMA provided: Nearly $412 million in grants to more than 229,500 applicants through the Individuals and Households Program for lodging expenses, rental assistance, minor home repairs and other needs assistance; Nearly $2.5 million for Disaster Unemployment Assistance; More than $649 million for emergency protective measures, or for the repair or replacement of public infrastructure and public utilities; More than $99 million in funding for mitigation projects to help reduce damage from future storms. The U.S. Small Business Administration provided: More than $227 million in low-interest disaster loans to nearly 11,000 renters and homeowners; More than $200 million to nearly 2,000 businesses. FEMAs mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

Shown above are members of the hospital staff with community guests turning the ceremonial shovel of dirt. At right, Ginger Carroll, CEO at We st Marion, welcomes the crowd and describes the expansion efforts. More photos on Page 6. Construction has started at Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Community Hospital on major projects designed to meet community need for expanded health care services. At dual groundbreaking ceremonies Wednesday morning, Ocala Health leadership announced that patient capacity at both Ocala Regional and West Marion will increase by a combined 46 patient beds. The $45 million investment by HCA, Ocala Healths parent company, represents nearly 75,000 square feet of space dedicated to patient care. Anticipated completion date for both projects is fall 2016. Ocala Health Board of Trustees, employees, physicians and local officials gathered Wednesday morning at the emergency entrance of West Marion Community Hospital where CEO Ginger Carroll led festivities and outlined construction specifics. This is the first major expansion at West Marion since it opened in September 2002. A new cardiac cath/special procedures lab will provide diagnostic and interventional cardiovascular procedures and interventional radiology services. An additional 24 medical/surgical beds on the second and third floors of the hospitals east wing will accommodate the increased number of inpatients we are treating. In addition, the existing laboratory will be expanded by approximately 800 square feet, doubling its current size, Carroll said. A short time later, attendees gathered at Ocala Regional Medical Center for a similar ceremony, with expansion creating more critical care beds. There will be a net increase of 24 licensed beds at West Marion, from 70 to 94. When completed, an additional 75 health care workers are expected to be employed to staff the new patient care areas. Construction already under way as groundbreaking is held Entertainment at CherrywoodGator Bone Band with Lon and Lis williamson and Gabe Valla performs at Cherrywood. For details, see the column on Page 15. The College of Central Florida will pay tribute to those who lost their lives during the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and host a grand opening for the CF Patriot Center for Veterans Thursday, Sept. 11. The remembrance ceremony begins at 9 a.m. and will be held outside the Patriot Center, Building 11, at the Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. The grand opening will immediately follow. The Patriot Center for Veterans was established to serve students and their families and offers a venue for studying and fellowship, mental health counseling, a small library, food pantry and more.

CF was designated as a Military Friendly institution in 2013 by Victory Media. The designation ranks CF as among the top 20 percent of schools nationwide that deliver the best experience for military students. The remembrance ceremony is hosted by the Student Activities Board at the Ocala Campus. To learn more about CF, visit www.CF.edu.
