A PUD zoning request before the County Commission on Tuesday afternoon took place regarding property that is bordered on two sides by Countryside Farms and on another side by Hidden Lake and Southwest 100th Street, just off State Road 200 across from On Top of the World. In the end, following a motion by Stan McClain, commissioners voted to require the PUD to have a 30-foot buffer with a six-foothigh wall. The only dissenter was Commissioner Kathy Bryant, who wanted to have an eightfoot-high wall. Countryside residents and their neighbors even mentioned a 10-foot wall, but in the end their pleas fell on deaf ears of four of the commissioners. Joining McClain in the 4-1 vote were Earl Arnett, Carl Zalak and David Moore. Part of the argument was obscured by complaints about the possible paving of Southwest 100th Street, but commissioners made it clear, more than once, that this was not part of the planned development (see editorial, Page 8). When completed, the development will have 363 units of varying types. It will be a gated community with deed restrictions and a homeowners association. There will also be a clubhouse, tennis courts and a pool. However, there will be no age Two years and more than a thousand miles separated Giuseppe DiBella and his beloved toy fox terrier, Nika, but a tiny microchip (along with some help from friends) is bringing them back together. Two years ago, Nika went missing from DiBellas yard in Newburg, New York. He contacted law enforcement, posted fliers and even put her microchip number online to no avail. Though the months went on, DiBella said he didnt lose hope. I never gave up, he said. I kept wishing she was OK. Last week, a thin toy fox terrier found her way to the front door of an Ocala home. Abby Rivera, a friend of the homeowner, brought the little dog to her workplace (a family veterinarian), hoping the dog had a microchip. Staff scanned Nika, found a chip and called Marion County Animal Services with the stray dog and contact information for someone who lived in New York. An animal control officer brought Nika to Marion County Animal Services where staff there tried to find the tiny dogs owner. To DiBellas disbelief, he received an email from Marion County Animal Services telling him his toy fox terrier was at the shelter. I didnt even know where Marion County was, DiBella said. I was so surprised when I realized it was in Florida. Nikas journey isnt quite over, but she is a whole lot closer to home. A family friend who lives in Deltona picked up Nika from the Animal Center to stay with her until Thanksgiving when her brother is visiting from New York. From there, Nika will travel back home to New York where shell be reunited with her owner who never gave up on his little dog. Nikas story is a beautiful example of the value of microchips, Marion County Animal Services Director Deborah Horvath said. Collars and tags can be removed or lost, but microchips provide a lifelong means of identification. Microchips help reunite countless families, whether the stray animal is one or 1,000 miles away from home. We encourage all pet owners to microchip their pets. Microchips are tiny chips about the size of a grain of rice implanted in pets skin between their shoulder blades. Animal shelters and veterinarian staff can scan stray pets to obtain the chips unique number, which is linked to the owners contact information in a database. Microchipping at the Animal Center is only $15, and takes only a few minutes. Call 352-671-8700 or visit the website at www.marioncountyfl.org/animal for more information. Dog missing in New York found in Ocala Microchip helps ID animal that vanished two years ago Nika showed up in Ocala. Objections ignored, zoning case approved PLEASESEEZONING, PAGE3 The Florida Department of Health in Marion County has advised residents there has been an increase in mosquito-borne disease activity in areas of Marion County. A horse tested positive for West Nile illness and there is a heightened concern that residents will become ill. The Department issued a mosquito-borne illness advisory on July 9 after two horses in less than two weeks tested positive for the Eastern equine encephalitis virus. So far in 2014, eight horses have tested positive for Eastern equine encephalitis. The recent positive test for West Nile virus in a Marion County horse is the first time this year West Nile virus has been detected in Marion County. The Department reminds residents and visitors to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes and to take basic precautions to help limit exposure. To protect yourself from mosquitoes, you should remember to Drain and Cover: Drain standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken Mosquito-borne illnesses on the rise PLEASESEEMOSQUITO, PAGE3 Remembering the victims of 9-11 Here are photos from ceremony at College of Central Florida PHOTOS PROVIDED BY CF Its time to get ready for Halloween on the State Road 200 Corridor.

restriction, another bone of contention with the neighboring communities. Despite a map that shows it, there are no plans for a gas station in the center of the development. The cost of houses would range from $200,000 to $300,000. The development, nearly surrounded by other housing areas, will have two methods of access off the highway. Also planned is an emergency entrance, locked, at the southwest part of the property near Southwest 100th Street. That entrance would probably put traffic into a cul-desac in Hidden Lake. But the developer said it would only be used to allow access to emergency vehicles when the main roads were blocked. Many of the speakers emphasized the Countryside equine community, with horses and barns. Some said that with young people, including teenagers, allowed in the new development, which would have houses that back up to Countryside, there would be a possibility of vandalism, more fireworks than from the 55-and-over crowd and, as one lady said, lead to teenagers jumping the fence, going into her barn and smoking dope. Another complained of noise from partying, noise that wouldnt come from the 55-and-over residents. At that Zalak commented, Have you ever been down to The Villages. A later speaker battling for a higher wall, said that Even if they party in The Villages, they dont jump as high, drawing a muchneeded laugh from the crowd. Another speaker noted that the original zoning in 2008 had an age-restricted area, but that was now being removed from the plans. People who have lived here over the years should not be at the mercy of developers. One lady had a message for the developers: Knock it off and leave us alone. But for the most part, the developers got what they wished, although there are still hoops to jump through before the burning of trees, another contested item, takes place.

ZONINGCONTINUED FROM P AGE 1 appliances and other items that arent being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that dont accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. Cover skin with clothing or repellent. Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long-sleeves. Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535 are effective. Cover doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out. Keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screens on windows, doors, porches, and patios. Tips on Repellent Use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some reMOSQUITOCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 pellents are not suitable for children. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET are generally recommended. Other U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing. In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three years. DEET is not recommended on children younger than two months old. Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply repellent first to their own hands and then transfer it to the childs skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturers directions. For more information on what repellent is right for you, consider using the Environmental Protection Agencys search tool to help you choose skin-applied repellent products: http://cfpub.epa.gov/oppref/insect/#searchform. The Department continues to conduct statewide surveillance for mosquito-borne illnesses, including West Nile virus infections, Eastern Equine encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis, malaria and dengue.

We think he is being miscalculated. Hes a crafty politician who conveys subtle messages to millions of immigrants who are already in the U.S. and many more millions who want to cross our borders as soon as they have an opportunity. For many years Mr. Obama has offered a consistent message to immigrant audiences: You embody the American dream, and Im your friend He has told thousands of potential citizens that they are also potential voters, that they are critical to his success, and that they deserve and will have his respect. Although there are a dozen or more half-passed immigration bills gathering dust in the House and Senate, the president says he cant work with the legislators. We suspect hes not unhappy about acting alone to embarrass the gridlocked Congress. Mr. Obama has cleverly postponed until after the November congressional election his suggestion that he can unilaterally improve our dysfunctional immigration. His promised lone action to keep millions of immigrants from being deported will amount to a very large virtual amnesty. To assure that his promises will gather votes, the president whispered to Hispanic lawmakers that he will take care of their Latino supporters by the end of the year. His all alone fix for millions of illegal immigrants may not be reform, but it is smart politics. Reality is that a president cant pull off a one-man immigration reform, but an interesting Washington Post article back in July suggested there are a number of ways in which the system can be fiddled with and tinkered. First off the president can pressure the various federal agencies which deal with immigration to loosen up on their bureaucratic regulations and obstructions. Washington bureaucrats tend to fall in love with their authority and lose dedication to their missions. The immigration agencies have some leeway to loosen agricultural guest worker costs and regulations. They could similarly loosen up requirements for seasonal and service workers. The big question will be whether Congress will stand still and watch Mr. Obama loosen the reigns on immigration rules and regulations, and grant dispensations to millions of unauthorized immigrants who have already settled in. In the meantime, whether our immigration process is reformed or ignored, by the end of this year the number of young migrants from Central America may reach 100,000 who come with expectations they will be fed and sheltered. My family is having a gas crisis, and its becoming a very serious matter in the household. No, not that kind of gas. Its all about gasoline and what kind were going to put into our vehicles. For years, we have had a BP Visa card, the rewards type that gives you a break on future gasoline purchases. No matter what you use the card for, you get credit toward gas, which shows up at the pump where you get an option of whether you want to use it or let it accumulate. Recently I was driving down the road and glanced over to where my friendly BP station should be. All I saw was some guy on a ladder putting up a Marathon sign. Since then, Ive become aware of at least four stations east of the Interstate that have abandoned BP and become Marathon stations at 36th Avenue and East Silver Springs Boulevard; U.S. Highway 27 just off the Interstate; South Pine and State Road 200 and South Pine and 17th Street. The other day I had occasion to be on Pine and I was going to need gas. I finally ended up at Pine and First Avenue, across from Pizza Hut, which at the time was still BP When the pump gave me a choice, I immediately used the 31 cents per gallon reward before all the BP stations were gone. My wife was in one of the stations and asked about it. She was told that BP had to be out of Florida by the end of the year, something about the settlement after the oil spill. I dont know that for sure, but the Texas City BP Refinery was sold to Marathon in late 2012, and since then BP stations all over the Southeast have been converted to Marathon stations. Ive read stories from Florence, Alabama, Starkville, Mississippi, Sebring, Florida and other smaller places about stations in those areas all switching off BP So now Ive started scouring the Internet to see what credit card we will switch to. No matter what, I doubt if it will be as good as the BP card and the benefits that came with it. Around here we have Shell and Chevron and RaceTrak and Valero and Diamond Oil and Kangaroo and various others I cant recall immediately. Reading the reviews of some people on the Web helps you limit your choices, but sometimes you have to take these reviews for what little theyre worth. But if I cant find one that gives me good rewards, Ill go back to what I used to do go to the station that advertises the cheapest prices. Thats the practical side of me or is it the cheapskate side of me?Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and South Marion Citizen.

Several times on this opinion page, we have railed against the anonymous staff that finds rezoning requests compatible with the surrounding area when many people dont think thats true. At the County Commission zoning session Tuesday afternoon, things didnt go well for some of those staff people. During presentations by the developer, he mentioned the eventual widening of Southwest 100th Street and the paving of that road all the way from 80th Avenue to 62nd, passing close by the Cherrywood subdivision. His information came from printed material he had obtained from the county planning office, and the result was that Cherrywood residents helped pack the room, thinking this rezoning case was going to result in that paving activity. But the notation was a bit premature. Chairman Carl Zalak asked where that information was coming from, and the speaker said it was on Page 4 of the materials he was given. Chris Rison of Growth Services went to the microphone and said staff had talked about the growth in that area, which is called the triangle, and that 100th would probably have to be a two-lane paved road with a grass median, running between 80th Avenue and 62nd Avenue, the extension of 60th. Why are we putting this out? Zalak said, obviously annoyed that this information had been published. We (commissioners) havent even talked about this. Kathy Bryant echoed the concern that the information had been put out without commission authorization, saying the group hadnt even considered such a proposal. In addition, the only concern about that road was because of an emergency exit, which would be very close to 80th Avenue and wouldnt have vehicles constantly going in and out. In other words, Growth Services jumped the gun. The paving of Southwest 100th Street is not an issue yet, although it could be in a distant future. And the staff took it upon itself to give out this information, ignoring their bosses, the five commissioners. Maybe this will be the impetus to rein in the staff, something that has been needed for a long time. They should only act on proposals that are planned to come before the commissioners. Speculation is not their job. And were glad that a couple of commissioners told them off. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY County staff gets a tongue-lashing My local BP stations are vanishing Immigration gridlock and crafty Obama READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Candidates and taxesThe headline in your Friday, Sept 12 issue I found very disturbing: School Candidates: We have the money. First, this does not represent even the majority opinion of candidates running for the office. Most candidates recognize the need for additional funding and have said so on the record. The article went on to quote a couple of school board candidates who promoted the nave and incorrect idea that the school system has lots of money, but they just simply dont spend it correctly. Would that it were that simple, but a few facts might be helpful: First, the Marion County school budget has been cut over 50 million over the last seven years. The state is funding students at more than 200 dollars less than in 2007. We have the worst record of any county in Florida in class size violations, which have come about due to our lack of funds to hire new teachers. We spend less than almost any county in Florida on administrative costs. No one who has any idea of what a principal or vice principal does in a school would suggest they should be split between schools. This is a real indication of the naivet and lack of practical knowledge a couple of candidates exhibit. The idea that there is no accountability or knowledge in school finance is another clueless statement. There are innumerable local, state, and federal laws which regulate virtually every cent in the school system. This is a huge budget, and it takes a team of experts to manage it. Some of these candidates should visit the finance office and learn something before making irresponsible statements. Most funds are only available to spend in very specific ways. As school board members learn very quickly, there is very little money available they actually control. The idea that there is a big sack of money in a closet somewhere in the county office and one can use it any way one wants is just silly. The we have plenty of money, is the same old argument we have heard over and over again by folks who just want to cut yet more from education. We heard this during campaigns two and four years ago, and look where that got us. The idea that all these students cannot read and write is nonsense as well.

Check your facts, listen carefully, talk to people who have actual experience in the community and the schools, and then get out and vote. Our childrens future depends upon it. Dave Hartley Retired Marion County teacherEditors Note: There are only four candidates remaining in the race for School Board. Two, the challengers noted above, have come out against the tax, and one incumbent, who was not at the recent forum, has failed to commit to backing the tax. No to YohoCongressman Ted Yohos recent votes for two bills demonstrate his hypocrisy and remind us why he does not deserve a second term. The misnamed Child Tax Credit Improvement Act (H.R. 4935) eliminates a life-saving feature of the tax code for millions of working class parents while giving more money to wealthy families. According to the Office of Management and Budget, a single parent with two children who earns the minimum wage would lose her entire tax credit of $1725 at the same time that a couple with two children earning $150,000 would receive an increased tax credit of $2,200. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office this would add almost $114.9 billion to the U.S. deficits during the next 10 years. The Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act (H.R. 935) eliminates the requirement for obtaining a permit before applying pesticides to waterways. According to the National Resources Defense Council, the Environmental Protection Agency has not received any complaints about this simple permit procedure for protecting the waterways that are used for drinking, swimming and fishing. Yoho ran for office based upon the Tea Party principle of lowering the deficit due to a concern for the future of our children and grandchildren. Instead we find that he is actually in favor of increasing the deficit by throwing more money at his wealthy supporters while not caring that our children and grandchildren will drink from and swim and fish in contaminated waters. A recent Star-Banner editorial criticized Yoho for . carrying water for some of Floridas biggest polluters. H.R. 4935 and 935 are not anomalies. Yohos votes during his tenure have consistently exhibited a total disregard for preserving a healthy environment and he has threatened the economy. The League of Conservation Voters gives Yoho a rating of only 4 percent. Even Marco Rubio has a rating of 11 percent. It is estimated that the government shutdown (that Yoho instigated and supported) cost the economy $25 billion. Economists were aghast at Yohos comment that it would be good for the U.S. to default on its debt, a catastrophe that would devastate peoples retirement funds, the banking industry and the job market. I urge all voters in Floridas Congressional District 3, whatever your political affiliation, to support Marihelen Wheeler, a commonsense schoolteacher from Gainesville who will not be the laughingstock of the nation. Daniel Lack OcalaIts time to speak up!When are we going to stand up and get parents to be responsible for their children? Im sick and tired of being asked to contribute to their school, sports and entertainment. When I was growing up during the depression and after WW2 my parents had no assistance from the government or others to feed, clothe or take care of their children and neither did I. Today people get welfare, EBT cards, telephones, Section 8, food banks and still they ask the tax payer to pay for school breakfast, lunches, supplies etc. How much more do we have to give these people? Weve all seen their buying habits at the store of fast foods, prepared foods and junk foods, instead of getting meats and vegetables and cooking them, heaven knows there not working, so what do they do all day? And they sure have money to buy cigarettes and beer. We seniors have to live on our Social Security and savings, because as responsible people we saved. We have to pay for all these programs given to able bodied people who should go to work and take care of their family. While some seniors cant afford to buy needed medicine or food and must choose which one to buy; these freeloaders go around sitting on their butts and having more children because well it pays more.

be, to see in the paper that Munroe Regional Medical Center wants to take more money given to them from the government (me) to have social workers teach school children healthy habits. Isnt that the job of parents? That money should be better put to use to lower medical costs. Ive paid taxes all my life and still do, federal, state and county etc. I say if you want to get health care, child care etc., you must work for it and pass a drug test if required, I had to pass a drug test in order to keep my job think thats discrimination, well then I was discriminated against in order to keep my job. But we know that its easier to get welfare then find a job. You might say there isnt any work here, well guess what, we moved many times to where the jobs were; surely they can do the same. Yes, Ive had to take on two or three jobs at times to make ends meet, it didnt kill me. We have to admit that this is getting out of hand and we cant afford it anymore. People have forgotten that nothing is free in this world, someone has to pay for it and it comes at a high cost to those of us who have worked hard all our lives. Yes, Im mad and so should you. A long time taxpayer now retired and wanting to stay that way, I earned it! N. Poirier OcalaBe vigilantWe must be vigilant about the lefts constantly trying to push their agendas on us. They stake out positions and see how the public responds. If theres sufficient outrage, they pull back, and try the same tactic soon after. For example, on May 19, 2011, Pres. Obama proposed reducing Israels size to the borders it had prior to the 1967 Six-Day War. That met with such outrage that the White House quickly walked it back. Recently in Rochester Hills, Michigan, four employees of a high school denied entrance to a students father. His crime? He was an Army officer in uniform. The superintendent quickly condemned the denial, saying his district had no policy forbidding uniformed military from entering the building. We have yet to hear from those four employees, whod told the officer it was school district policy. Now in Ocala, the city proposed to fine two business owners for displaying the Dont Tread on Me flag, which was used during the Revolutionary War and is sometimes used by Tea Partyers today. Again, outrage followed, so the left is walking it back. The price of liberty is truly eternal vigilance.

I know some people who just delight in flying from one point to another point. If you would count all of those people who do, I would be nowhere on that list. Recently I had to travel involving changing planes, which involved spending a night at the Orlando airport. I could have come home, which is about two hours away, or I could spend the night and catch the plane the next day. It would cost me about the same to stay overnight at the airport as it would to travel back home and then return to the airport the next day. So, after all of my meticulous calculations, I decided to spend the night at the airport. I determined while there to get the most of my nights stay at the airport. The hotel at the airport was one of those big international hotels. It had more stories than a politician on the campaign trail. As is usually the case, my room was on one of the top stories of the hotel. Checking in at the front desk, I then went to my room and settled down for the evening. I was not going to waste my time huddled in my hotel room, rather, I was going to look around and experience the nightlife at this international airport. Have you ever made a decision, then looking back on it you thought to yourself, Self, we are never going to do that again. Such was my case. I decided to get some supper around 8 oclock in the evening. This, I found out, was the time high society folk eat. Why they eat so late, I will never know. But, since I was with high society, I decided to act and eat like high society. The restaurant in this international hotel was one of those highfalutin restaurants where you really do not know what is on the menu. The menu was in every language except English. Fortunately, they had some pictures and fortunately, my index finger was still in God is closer to me than my cell phone Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder good working order. I ordered my supper, set back and observed the high society all around me. One thought that stumbled through my brain at the time was, I wonder if these people in this restaurant know that I am not part of high society? About this time the wine steward, I guess that is what he is called, came by to take my wine order. The only wine I know is spelled with an H. When I declined the wine, people began to suspect I was not part of high society. I guess you cannot be part of high society unless you wine a little. I finished my supper and decided to wander around in the huge lounge area on this floor. Everybody there was talking and so I got an order of coffee, went to a couch, sat down and just observed what was going on around me. One thing I noticed was that most people seemed to be on their cell phone. What would happen in our society if cell phones suddenly stopped working for three minutes? There would be such a panic across our country that nobody would actually survive. I decided I should call someone on my cell phone. After all, I am trying to fit in with this high society.

As part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, AAA The Auto Club Group joins organizations nationwide to encourage parents and caregivers to make sure their children are riding in a safe seat. Three out of four car seats today are installed incorrectly, said Michele Harris, director of traffic safety culture, AAA The Auto Club Group. Too often, we see kids who are in a car seat thats installed incorrectly or not using an age-appropriate booster seat. As we recognize Child Passenger Safety Week Sept. 14-20, its a timely reminder to be sure children are safe and secure in the right seat for them. One of the most frequent car seat mistakes is the positioning of harness straps. If straps are too loose, children will not be properly restrained in the event of a crash. This may subject them to higher crash forces, or even ejection from the seat altogether. Harness straps should lie flat and not have any twists. The harness should be snug enough that you cannot pinch any extra material at the childs shoulder. With schools back in session, carpooling among parents increases, which can result in situations where children are not riding in a car seat or booster seat. A recent AAA Consumer Pulse survey found that 45 percent of people surveyed in Florida agree its difficult to make arrangements to have booster seats available for other peoples children. The use of booster seats can reduce injuries by 45 percent compared to using an adult safety belt alone, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Children who have outgrown their fivepoint harness car seat by weight or height should use a booster seat until they reach 4 feet, 9 inches, typically between the ages of 8-12. For younger children using a five-point harness car seat, many hospitals offer car seat installation classes and car seat inspection stations provide certified child passenger safety technicians to inspect seats to make sure they are installed properly. To find an inspection station or learn more, visit SafeSeats4Kids.AAA.com. Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, every driver in Florida will be required to use a child restraint device for children until age 6. Child safety seat: Proper use urged Marion County Utilities changes phone numbersMarion County Utilities customer service center changed locations and phone numbers this week.

the world I should call at 10 oclock in the evening. Then it dawned on me. I will call the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. I do not know why I did not think of this before. So, I pressed the speed dial and the phone started ringing. As soon as the phone started ringing, a thought danced in my mind. What in the world am I calling her for? What in the world would I talk about? Before finishing all of the questions floating around my cranium my wife answered the phone. The first words out of her mouth were, What did you forget now? It seems that whenever I go on a trip, before I get too far down the road I remember something I forgot. When I assured her that I had not forgotten anything, I sensed a slight pause on the other end and then she said, Did you miss your plane? Within the next few minutes I was bombarded with question after question, all I did was call, and at this point, I could not remember why I had called her. It just seemed like the thing to do at the time. After she settled down a little bit and her panic seizure ceased, I told her I just called to call. Oh, she said, not knowing how to answer that. I was shocked. It had never happened before. I am going to cherish this memory for as long as I live. I actually caught her when she had nothing to say. Needless to say, I relished that moment because it will probably never happen again. After I hung up, I sat sipping some more coffee when one of my favorite verses came to mind. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear (Isaiah 65:24). My comfort rests in the fact that God is closer to me than my cell phone.

While sin can be confessed any time of the year, Jews feels especially close to God during this holy time of the year. In the Jewish faith, there is no such thing as Original Sin. While human beings may be flawed by virtue of them being human, the concept of sin in Jewish circles is looked upon differently. The word for sin is taken from an archery term, which means to miss the mark. When a Jew sins, he/she has missed the mark by not following one of Gods commandments and is therefore obligated to repent. The Jewish word for repentance is teshuvah, which actually means to turn back to God in true remorse and away from sin. The special time of the year for this is during the Ten Days of Repentance, the ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur. For sins that were done against God, i.e. using the holy name in a profane manner, atonement is gained by directing prayers to God in true remorse and in confession of the sin. For acts done towards human beings, forgiveness can only be obtained by confronting the wronged party and asking for forgiveness. Traditionally this can be done for three times, according to the great scholar, Maimonides, and if the victim does not forgive the sinner, then the sin falls upon the victim. Judaism places great emphasis on justice. We believe that God is a God of justice and expects human beings to act accordingly. While the concept of hell is not a Jewish one, Jews do believe that somehow justice will be served if not now, then in the world to come. In the Jewish faith, one confesses his/her sins during prayer. True repentance occurs when confronted High Holiday season a special time with the same sin; the sinner resists temptation and does not sin again. (Ok, I admit this part is really hard. I love chocolate and I probably eat too much of it, but I just cant resist when something chocolate comes my way). Our prayers are directed to God, we have no intercessory. The liturgy does call upon the merits of our ancestors, the matriarchs and patriarchs, but it is God who ultimately forgives us. It is Jewish tradition to fast to show our intent to repent. Deprivation of food also sensitizes us to the plight of the hungry and less fortunate among us. With this concept in mind, mere prayer and confession alone is not enough for true teshuvah, we must also seek for justice and mercy in our world by the giving of tzedakah, righteousness, charity in order to ensure Gods forgiveness. Admitting ones faults is not an easy thing to do. We are not computers that can be programmed to erase flaws by hitting the delete button. Taking stock of ourselves involves meditation and introspection, acts which require us to take time out of our very busy lives. As the calendar turns and the season of fall comes upon us, let us all turn and resolve to be better people to workers, family, friends and ourselves. Let us strive to live following the Golden Rule, what is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. May the New Year of 5775 bring us closer to a world of peace and prosperity for us. Lshannah tovah! Happy New Year! (Rosh Hashanah begins on September 24 at sunset and continues on September 25-26, 2014) From your writerThis will be my last column after eight years of Judis Journal. I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge of Judaism with you, my readers, and I appreciate your support. Shalom means hello, good-bye and peace. I bid you shalom. Judis Journal Judi Siegal Judi Siegals final column Powerful blasts will echo throughout the Ocala community as Rabbi Yossi Hecht blows the shofar, or rams horn, for Jews across town to celebrate the Jewish New Year which begins Wednesday, Sept. 24. Blowing through the narrow end of the horn of a ram like a trumpet, Yossi Hecht will herald the beginning of the Jewish New Year, called Rosh Hashanah. The shofar is sounded each year during the holiday to herald the beginning of the Jewish season of repentance. Because of its importance, Jews have traditionally been required to hear the shofar on Rosh Hashanah. All are invited to hear this powerful performance and fulfill one of Rosh Hashanas most important rituals. The shofar is the central symbol of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanahs two daysthis year on Thursday, Sept. 25 and Friday, Sept. 26. Services begin at 10 a.m. during which the shofar will be blown and are followed by a delicious holiday Lunch buffet. In addition to alerting the Jewish community to the approaching holiday, the sound of the shofar is also a reminder of Gods kingship and a call to repentance. The blast of the shofar is a powerful call to repentance, and the opening act to one of the happiest times of a new year, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht who will blow the shofar for the community. Wherever Jews are in Ocala and The Villages, I invite them to witness this meaningful alert to the season! Wherever our Jewish family is, we make sure to hear the sound of the shofar and get excited for the year to come, said David Shapiro President of The Chabad Jewish Center. The shofar reminds us that while we should take the new year to improve ourselves and our community, we also have plenty of reason to celebrate what we have. Other Rosh Hashanah programs include Rosh Hashanha Evening Service, Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m., followed by a gourmet glatt kosher dinner at the Hilton of Ocala. All are welcome! No membership or affiliation is required! English Hebrew Prayer Books are provided. All services are free of charge donations are appreciated! For more information about Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, visit www.JewishMarion.org/HighHolidays. To find High Holiday services in hundreds of cities throughout the world, visit www.JewishMarion.org/HighHolidayServices. Rabbi to blow rams horn in several Ocala locations Read the classifieds Meditation is supposed to be good in many ways for people who practice this on a regular basis at least 20 minutes a day. Now there is a group that would appreciate it if meditators do their own practice meditation every Sunday indefinitely around the world at the same moment. It would be at 11 a.m. in Ocala. They feel the global effort will restore peace and harmony and heal Earth. It would also help create positive changes for the whole human society.On the Road Again Travel ClubBob Woods On the Road Again Travel Club has added two new coordinators to the club, John and Annette Ware.

Teams like Dr. Dunn and Great Clips were expected to be in the battle for first place, but lo and behold it didnt turn out that way. The Dr. Dunn team with its powerhouse hitters was never able to put it all together. Much like the present day Red Sox, they ended up in last place with all the teams asking what went wrong. The Great Clips team started out in the basement but made strides during the year and was within first place mid season, but also faltered during the end of the season. The one team that was there almost to the end was the Tee Pee Tire team which made a run for the top and was within a stones throw from taking over first place.

IN THE KINGDOM OF ICE: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeanette By Hampton Sides In the late 19th century the North Pole was an unattainable object of dreams for people who had to know what was Up There. Responding to this public gripped by Arctic fever and clamoring for exploration was a dashing, largerthan-life naval commander, George DeLong, and the eccentric sole owner of the New York Herald newspaper and third richest man in America at the time, James Gordon Bennett. The latter was not satisfied to merely report the news: he created it. Earlier hed dispatched Henry Stanley to find Dr. Livingstone in Africa. Never mind that Livingstone didnt want to be found, the story sold hundreds of newspapers. Now Bennett was geared up for another epic story. Strange beliefs were circulating then like the idea, held even by eminent geographers, that beyond a girdle of pack ice at the North Pole was a temperate paradise of warm water, myriad new species, and navigable seas. However, the subtitle of this exhaustively researched and brilliantly written tale braces readers for the realities of the venture. Although Bennett money insured that the USS Jeanette, named after the publishers sister, would be the best equipped vessel with a supplemental steam engine, specially enforced bow, reinforced hull, plus arc lights from Edison, and straight-from-the-lab telephones from Bell, nothing prepared the 33-man crew for this dangerous mission to uncharted territory. Despite its many accoutrements their vessel was still just a wooden ship. On a clear July 8th afternoon in 1879 the USS Jeanette set sail from San Francisco with thunderous cheers from the assembled crowd. But there was no celebration by Sunday, Sept. 7 when the men felt a new pressure working on the starboard side, and then suddenly a large floe shoved the Jeanette onto a shelf of ice, causing her to list crazily. Other floes tightened around the ship. Under the pressure, her timbers began to tick and groan. Within minutes, the Jeanette was completely imprisoned. Trapped in the ice for nearly two years, the crew survives the cold and illness only to lose the ship a week after it is finally released. In the second act of this harrowing tale, the men must trek toward Siberia on unstable ice and turbulent seas.Kingdom is a spellbinding story of heroism and determination.

It still seems plenty hot to me, except for some early mornings when its nice to be outside. While there have been some hurricane and tropical storms, they have stayed away from us. All we get are rain and some wind which bring us to Pun Alley stories.Hurricanes and himmicanesHurricanes were traditionally named after women because they arrive all windy and wild, and when they leave they take your house and your car. Nowadays, hurricanes are also named after men because theyre noisy, make a huge mess, and if you look into their eyes theres nothing there.Youll fall for this oneWhen the Ocala movie theater was in its original glory, a fellow worked there seating people and generally maintaining order. Every year, in October, when the leaves were turning, he would hold The Autumn Barbecue of the Year at his house. This event grew in popularity until it was the place to be. Each year, as the day approached, people would ask each other, Will I see you at The Fall at the House of Usher?Lassies cousinA dog always showed up at The Autumn Barbecue of the Year. The dog would go around eating discarded watermelon and cantaloupe pieces. Nobody knew who his owner was, but they all knew the dog was a melon collie.Goin to seedOut on Route 484 a farmer went out into the fields early one autumn morning to do some planting. He instructed his hired hand to hook the seeder to the tractor and seed winter wheat in the next field. About a half-hour later, the man came running back to the farmer. Whats the matter? the farmer called out. The man yelled as he approached, Theres a whole bunch of tomatoes still growing in that field from last springs planting. What should I do? The farmer calmly turned to him and says: Damn the tomatoes; full seed ahead.RaindropsSummers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. Have you ever notice how groups of lions tend to move on just before autumn? Of course, pride goeth before the fall. A baker pushed his wife into the cake mix. She claims shes a battered woman. Up north the leaves are beginning to fall, and soon only two things will be hanging from the trees the last leaf and the first football coach. She criticized my apartment, so I knocked her flat. Autumn is a season for big decisions, like whether or not its too late to start spring-cleaning. I was recently on a tour of Latin America, and the only regret I have was that I didnt study Latin harder in school so I could converse with those people. I preserve vegetables and fruits in jars and store them on my closet shelves because I can. Cable TV has a 24-7 weather channel. We had something like that where I grew up. We called it a window. The landscaper thought gardening magazines were fun to leaf through. When a duck walked into a bar the bartender looked at him and said, Hey, buddy, your pants are down.Anyone home?A social worker who had recently transferred from Miami to the Tennessee mountains was touring her new territory when she came upon the tiniest cabin she had ever seen. Intrigued, she knocked on the door. Anybody home? A childs voice answered, Yep. Is your Father there? Pa? Nope, he left before Ma came in. Well, is your Mother there? Nope, Ma left just before I got here. Are you never together as a family? Sure, but not here. This is the outhouse.Stalking cattleCorned beef is from cows that have been raised in cornfields. They graze on the corn, get fattened and ready for slaughter. In the fall, just before the harvest, the cattle are rounded up. Unlike cattle grazing in grasslands, the corned beef are difficult to see because the corn stalks are so tall. A specially trained dog, known as a corn dog, assists in the roundup.Stubborn leavesA man, visiting one of the art galleries in Gainesville with his wife, stood for minutes staring at a painting of a woman dressed only in a few leaves. Finally his wife snapped at him, What are you waiting for, autumn?

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 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. Mix oil, garlic powder and pepper in large bowl. Add broccoli and tomatoes; toss to coat well. Spread in single layer on foil-lined 15-by-10-by-1-inch baking pan. Roast in oven 13 minutes or until broccoli is lightly browned. Meanwhile, mix vinegar, honey, basil and oregano in small bowl. Drizzle over roasted vegetables after removing from oven; toss to coat well. Serve immediately. Herbed Green BeansServings: 4 1 pound trimmed green beans 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 2 teaspoons olive oil 1/2 teaspoon finely crushed McCormick Rosemary Leaves 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Thyme Leaves 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt from McCormick Sea Salt Grinder 1/8 teaspoon McCormick Ground Black Pepper Place beans in medium saucepan.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 We thank Ann for taking the leadership position for this fun event; and we even spelled her name correctly this time. In a previous issue I misspelled Anns name; my apologies Ann.From the ReporterFor nearly three years I have had the privilege and honor of being the reporter for Cherrywood. To say it has been a terrific and fabulous experience would be a severe understatement. The time has come however for me to put up my pen and my feet. I used to like to go out on the week-end and party. Now, my back goes out and doesnt even invite me to go with it. It chooses the time and place with no regard to me. The result is Im slow moving; bent over and Suzi will attest to the fact that it sometimes makes me just a tad grumpy. In addition, while time and my body allow; I am going to be visiting the best gift my children ever game me; my grand kids. I have an obligation to spoil them and to tell them secrets about their parents. Also, there are many bad habits I can teach them. Besides my back and my family being considerations of this decision; Im going to continue working on the book I am writing. While sitting and writing is difficult now; I am optimistic that this too shall pass and I can devout more time to that endeavor. If there were some way I could continue to be a part of the CitizenNewspaper; and still fulfill those dreams; I would relish the idea. Few things in my life have brought me as much satisfaction and pleasure as reporting on the many activities and the awesome people Ive come to know here in Cherrywood. Working with Editor Jim Clark has been one of the highlights of my writing career. He has been a mentor and a guide from the first day I started. He has continued in this role and become a friend. Holly Bragdon has been our resident photographer and she has done a terrific job. There are no words to thank her for her dedication; professionalism and talent. Suffice it to say shes the best. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 After the Oct. 3 issue, except for the Veterans Club publicity, we will need some one or some ones to keep everyone informed about the many activities here in our community. If you have any interest in doing this; I strongly suggest you let me know as soon as possible. We can work together for the next couple of weeks to make the transition smooth and painless. My duties with the Veterans Club will end following the Veterans Day Observance on Nov. 11 of this year. Because this years celebration is going to be one of the biggest in our history as an organization; I am committed to providing extensive coverage of that event. Being the reporter for Cherrywood is a marvelous opportunity for anyone who loves people and cares about our community. You will receive the help and cooperation from those who head up the various clubs; committees; and special events. In addition, you will have a chance to make a difference. Finally; and most importantly; you will get to know and work with your marvelous neighbors and fellow residents. If you have any suggestions or ideas for the Cherrywood Section of the Citizen newspaper; please contact me at ssg6jae@gmail.com Pastor Gary O.

The cast, chorus and company members from the Performing Arts Company of Oak Run debuted with a montage of songs from Hello, Dolly! at this past Saturdays donut drop-in at the Orchid Club at Oak Run. The score was from the chosen performance for this falls musical at the community. Practices have been underway for over one month and the cast is anticipating another sellout show for the full program which will take stage on the 10th, 11th and 12th of October The company wore their show t-shirts which were arranged by Ron Manford. We like for everyone to consistently wear (and wash when necessary) these shirts to help get word out in the community about the show. Many that have not attended a PACOR production will ask about the show and it will naturally lead to a ticket sale, comments Mr. Manford. The donut drop-in is the venue of choice for many to purchase tickets, and sales were brisk. However, we still have seating available for each show and general admission is available at the door. Billie Gable, ticket sales chair commented; the popularity of the show means that tickets have gone a little quicker than usual. Upcoming sales are at the Pancake Breakfast in the Orchid Club on Sept. 27, 8 to 11a.m. and at rehearsal in the Palm Grove Monday, Sept. 29. If these dates are inconvenient, Billie Gable will take your calls at 352-237-1104. PACOR urges firsttimers to make this show their introduction to the company and perhaps consider joining. Hello, Dolly! is a lively and joyful production that will be sure to please.Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfAnother good day of golf on Sept. 9 and some more wonderful winners.

We send our prayers to her husband, Jim, and her family. Well miss you, Carole.Renaissance WomenThe Renaissance Womens Club has had a busy, active month of September. We thoroughly enjoyed the theater experience at the Ocala Civic Theater with the musical comedy Crazy For You. What a delight seeing great tap dancing to terrific Gershwin songs! After the show, we had an amazing dinner at the Outback Restaurant. Come join us for our exciting fall season ahead and remember, we are open to all Oak Run women! We are planning our next Saturday movie outing and always welcome new ideas. Call Gerry 352873-6868 for upcoming information and carpool arrangements. Every first Wednesday evening of the month we meet at the Royal Oaks Dining Room for an interesting evening of delicious food, great company and conversation. Next month will be on Oct. 1. Call Pat 352-8547549 or Gerry352-8736868 if you would like to attend. Our next luncheon will be on Wednesday, Oct. 15; place to be announced. We are considering the newly renovated and expanded Mesa De Notte Italian Restaurant! Call Norma at 352-854-1910 for details of our monthly lunch outings. Our fall meeting will be held on Sunday, Sept. 28 at 2 p.m. at the Island Club. We will be coming up with new ideas for events! At this meeting, we will discuss plans for Dear Readers, do any of you have a bucket list? I am not sure but I think this idea of listing all the things you would like to do before you leave (you know what I mean by leave) or get too old to do those things came from a movie by that name. If I had ever decided to have a bucket list I dont think I would have included visiting a Democratic Club. Dont get me wrong it just never occurred to me because I am the other one. Keep reading because I know you are thinking where she is going with this list business. Thursday night I had to open up the Orchid Club sound room for the Democratic Club and decided to stay for the meeting. It was the first time in my life I had been to a Democrat meeting. There were several people I knew there, who knew I was not really one of them but it was advertised open to all residents. I am so glad I remained for this very interesting program. Their guest speaker was Judy Johnson, former Marion County Commissioner and presently Vice President of the League of Women Voters. She gave a very informative presentation, including pros and cons, of the three proposed amendments to Florida Constitution. Please watch the Citizen for complete description of these proposals as it gets closer to election. It was a good meeting and there should have been many more people present. I commend Mike Davis, president and Sandy Wolfe, vice president for this important club in our community. How great is democracy when all parties can come together to listen, share and ask questions. Maybe I should start a bucket list! Now to some of the happenings of our other clubs. Before I forget, do any of you know of one of our residents who will be turning 100 years old before end of year? Please contact me if you do.

sandwiches and hot dogs with drinks so you can have lunch and still not miss a step. Again, the luncheon specials are priced to please bargain hunters. Before you leave you have to visit our Songbirds bake sale table. Youll be dazzled by the large number of sweets available. Take home a cake; a pie; a dozen cookies; or buy something to top off your lunch. The sugar will give you extra energy while you shop. You will find some truly unique and special gifts for loved ones or for your own home. Because it is so early; you can mail your gifts in plenty of time for the holidays. There is no good reason to miss this terrific show and the work of our artists. See you there. A heads up for our crafters taking part in this show; contact Al Sickle at 208-5664 for information on another great show to be held on Oct. 25. It will be worth your while.Sold OutOur 20 Year Anniversary Show scheduled for Friday, the 26th is a complete sell out. Likewise, the Irish Hooley Party is also sold out. If you have tickets to either of these events and for any reason you are not going to be able to attend; please turn your tickets back into the office. Several residents have put their names on the waiting list so there is no reason for any empty seats at either of these great performances. Thank you for our cooperation in this request. Fun in the Sun gamesNow is the time to get your team together and sign up for our annual Fun in the Sun Games. This event is Cherrywoods answer to the Senior Olympics and it is not only a great competition but just a totally fun day. Let me explain. Four person teams form up and register. The registration fee is $10 per team or $2.50 per player. Teams can be made up of men; women; or men and women. Once your team is formed, each player must participate in two of the four events scheduled. The events are shuffleboard; bocce ball; bean bag toss and the ever favorite; Wellie Wanging. While the first three sports are pretty common sense, the Wellie Wang might not be as familiar to most people. Wellie refers to Wellington boots that are worn by the miners in the British Isles. The sport began when the miners would stop for a pint after work. Before they could enter the pub or similar establishment; they would remove their boots and throw them in the corner. Men being what they are; they soon had a competition for how far and how accurately they could throw their boots. Hence, the sport of Wellie Wanging was invented. We carry on the tradition here by throwing a yellow boot as far as possible; the persons or team that throws a boot the farthest, wins. Now Im not sure the story about the origins of Wellie Wanging is true but if its not; it should be. In addition to the players taking part, we usually have nearly 100 fans that turn out to root for their favorite team; enjoy the refreshments; have a few libations and place small wagers with each other. This is a truly hilarious event marked with laughter; stiff competition and good food. No tickets are necessary but if you have a team you must register in the office. You can get more information by calling event coordinators Holly Bragdon or Janice McLeod. Both Holly and Jan have asked for eight volunteers to assist them in being referees; umpires; score keepers and such. Mark your calendar for Sat. Oct. 18 and plan to be there from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for the time of your life.Halloween DanceOn Oct. 25 we will have our annual Halloween Dance from 7 until 10 p.m. here in the clubhouse. Dust off your costume or design a new one and take part in the Costume Contest that is a highlight of every Halloween Dance. Your imagination might be rewarded with a prize or at least the approving applause of your friends and neighbors. Tickets are required for this party so pick them up at the office. Refreshments will be available and like at all of our events; you are welcome to bring your own drinks. Music will be provided by Rich Becotte; our resident award winning DJ. There will be a door prize and 50/50 drawing along with other festivities so dont miss out on a great time. There will be no tricks but a whole bunch of treats at our great Halloween Dance.Ladies LuncheonOur own Ann Bardeck was hostess for the Ladies Luncheon on Sept. 10 in our clubhouse. She reports that the 11 ladies who were in attendance had a great time and as always; enjoy a terrific meal. The ladies of Cherrywood meet on the second Wednesday of each month in our clubhouse to socialize and enjoy an excellent meal. Everyone brings a favorite dish to pass and a place setting for themselves. There is always an abundance of good tasting food and fun fellowship. Ann held the 50/50 drawing; recognized birthdays and gave and opening prayer. The next ladies luncheon will be on Oct. 8 at noon so please make every effort to be there. Arequest has been received for Christmas and seasonal toys for children who may not receive an item of their own. Our members are only too happy to provide darling dolls; adorable animals; Elmos; Minions etc. which we lovingly handcraft for donating to various agencies in need of these items. These toys require, of course, the yarn and stuffing to make them. Many times the needed craft supplies come out of our own pockets; therefore, in order to raise some money to help defray the cost of these items, we are sponsoring a raffle at the Cherrywood Craft Show to be held in the clubhouse on Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. One of our members has contributed her cute handmade baby blanket and toy monkey; and another has contributed her handmade baby outfit which includes a beautiful matching dress, sweater coat, hat, and blanket pictured. Raffle tickets cost $1 each or 6 for $5. You may purchase tickets anytime prior to the craft show from any of our members, and there will also be a table available at the show. We appreciate your support in our continuing efforts and especially donations of yarn, etc. If you would like to see first hand our workshop; or join the group, we meet on Friday afternoon from 1 until 3 p.m. in the library/card room. Article and photos by Edna Fazio Yard SaleThis one snuck up on me as I just found out our semi-annual community yard sale is scheduled for Oct. 4. That Saturday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. is the opportunity for our residents to open their garage doors to residents from all over the county to come and purchase tools; jewels; knick knacks and a vast assortment of other treasures. There isnt much time to get the word out but well do the best we can. We want to insure that people know what a great community wide yard sale this truly is. All are welcome to take part in this special event that gives us time to clear out anything we dont want before the winter weather sets in. Oh wait, winter weather; thats right, its Florida; we dont have winter weather. No wonder my snow shovel hasnt sold. Anyway, get ready for another successful yard sale here at Cherrywood.Just danceOn Friday, Sept. 19 from 7 until 10 be at the clubhouse and enjoy the most informal Dance party ever. You wont need tickets; there wont be a 50/50 drawing and the only refreshments that are going to be served are the ones you bring yourself. This is a joyous experiment for all our residents. Rich Becotte, our resident DJ extraordinaire will be firing up the tunes selected from his vast repertoire on songs. There will be waltzes; tangos; polkas; country western; novelty tunes like the Y.M.C.A. and many others. This is an all request evening with no frills. Bring your own beverages and snacks; bring your friends and bring you smiles. Put on your dancing shoes and come out for an evening of dancing in the totally relaxing atmosphere of our welcoming clubhouse. If there are enough people who enjoy this kind of evening; we might be doing it every month. What have you got to lose; it will be a super fun evening and cost you absolutely nothing. See you there.Veterans Club MeetingOn Thursday, Oct. 2, your Veterans Club will be holding its regular monthly meeting. This particular meeting is of vital importance because there will be a discussion of the upcoming Veterans Day program on Nov. 11. This Veterans Day will be historic. There will be dignitaries from the College of Central Florida on hand as a service animal is donated by the Veterans Club in honor of that institution of higher learning. The Colleges mascot is the Patriot; so the service dog will be named Patriot. Julie Drexel of the Patriot Dog Project will be on hand to introduce the dog and accept the check. She will be joined by members of the SPCA; the news media and other special guests. We will also have a guest speaker; Mr. Alex Reid II. He is from Baldwin Bros. Funeral and Cremation Society. He will discuss preplanning and various other services provided by his company. Alex will be speaking in place of Fred Peters of the SPCA who was originally scheduled. Fred was injured in a freak accident and will be rebooked when he has healed. Our best wishes to Fred for a speedy recovery. Because we are an active club and provide information through our activities and guest speakers that our meetings are open to all of the residents of Cherrywood. Your Veterans Club is proud of its work in our community and grateful for the support and help that it receives from the people of Cherrywood. Please come out for the meetings and then enjoy the social time on the patio where we will share liquid refreshments and fellowship.Craft ShowOn Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. join dozens of crafters for our semi-annual Craft Show. Our doors are open to the entire Marion County community to come and share in the beautiful handcrafted wares that are available from local artisans.

sandwiches and hot dogs with drinks so you can have lunch and still not miss a step. Again, the luncheon specials are priced to please bargain hunters. Before you leave you have to visit our Songbirds bake sale table. Youll be dazzled by the large number of sweets available. Take home a cake; a pie; a dozen cookies; or buy something to top off your lunch. The sugar will give you extra energy while you shop. You will find some truly unique and special gifts for loved ones or for your own home. Because it is so early; you can mail your gifts in plenty of time for the holidays. There is no good reason to miss this terrific show and the work of our artists. See you there. A heads up for our crafters taking part in this show; contact Al Sickle at 208-5664 for information on another great show to be held on Oct. 25. It will be worth your while.Sold OutOur 20 Year Anniversary Show scheduled for Friday, the 26th is a complete sell out. Likewise, the Irish Hooley Party is also sold out. If you have tickets to either of these events and for any reason you are not going to be able to attend; please turn your tickets back into the office. Several residents have put their names on the waiting list so there is no reason for any empty seats at either of these great performances. Thank you for our cooperation in this request. Fun in the Sun gamesNow is the time to get your team together and sign up for our annual Fun in the Sun Games. This event is Cherrywoods answer to the Senior Olympics and it is not only a great competition but just a totally fun day. Let me explain. Four person teams form up and register. The registration fee is $10 per team or $2.50 per player. Teams can be made up of men; women; or men and women. Once your team is formed, each player must participate in two of the four events scheduled. The events are shuffleboard; bocce ball; bean bag toss and the ever favorite; Wellie Wanging. While the first three sports are pretty common sense, the Wellie Wang might not be as familiar to most people. Wellie refers to Wellington boots that are worn by the miners in the British Isles. The sport began when the miners would stop for a pint after work. Before they could enter the pub or similar establishment; they would remove their boots and throw them in the corner. Men being what they are; they soon had a competition for how far and how accurately they could throw their boots. Hence, the sport of Wellie Wanging was invented. We carry on the tradition here by throwing a yellow boot as far as possible; the persons or team that throws a boot the farthest, wins. Now Im not sure the story about the origins of Wellie Wanging is true but if its not; it should be. In addition to the players taking part, we usually have nearly 100 fans that turn out to root for their favorite team; enjoy the refreshments; have a few libations and place small wagers with each other. This is a truly hilarious event marked with laughter; stiff competition and good food. No tickets are necessary but if you have a team you must register in the office. You can get more information by calling event coordinators Holly Bragdon or Janice McLeod. Both Holly and Jan have asked for eight volunteers to assist them in being referees; umpires; score keepers and such. Mark your calendar for Sat. Oct. 18 and plan to be there from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for the time of your life.Halloween DanceOn Oct. 25 we will have our annual Halloween Dance from 7 until 10 p.m. here in the clubhouse. Dust off your costume or design a new one and take part in the Costume Contest that is a highlight of every Halloween Dance. Your imagination might be rewarded with a prize or at least the approving applause of your friends and neighbors. Tickets are required for this party so pick them up at the office. Refreshments will be available and like at all of our events; you are welcome to bring your own drinks. Music will be provided by Rich Becotte; our resident award winning DJ. There will be a door prize and 50/50 drawing along with other festivities so dont miss out on a great time. There will be no tricks but a whole bunch of treats at our great Halloween Dance.Ladies LuncheonOur own Ann Bardeck was hostess for the Ladies Luncheon on Sept. 10 in our clubhouse. She reports that the 11 ladies who were in attendance had a great time and as always; enjoy a terrific meal. The ladies of Cherrywood meet on the second Wednesday of each month in our clubhouse to socialize and enjoy an excellent meal. Everyone brings a favorite dish to pass and a place setting for themselves. There is always an abundance of good tasting food and fun fellowship. Ann held the 50/50 drawing; recognized birthdays and gave and opening prayer. The next ladies luncheon will be on Oct. 8 at noon so please make every effort to be there. Arequest has been received for Christmas and seasonal toys for children who may not receive an item of their own. Our members are only too happy to provide darling dolls; adorable animals; Elmos; Minions etc. which we lovingly handcraft for donating to various agencies in need of these items. These toys require, of course, the yarn and stuffing to make them. Many times the needed craft supplies come out of our own pockets; therefore, in order to raise some money to help defray the cost of these items, we are sponsoring a raffle at the Cherrywood Craft Show to be held in the clubhouse on Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. One of our members has contributed her cute handmade baby blanket and toy monkey; and another has contributed her handmade baby outfit which includes a beautiful matching dress, sweater coat, hat, and blanket pictured. Raffle tickets cost $1 each or 6 for $5. You may purchase tickets anytime prior to the craft show from any of our members, and there will also be a table available at the show. We appreciate your support in our continuing efforts and especially donations of yarn, etc. If you would like to see first hand our workshop; or join the group, we meet on Friday afternoon from 1 until 3 p.m. in the library/card room. Article and photos by Edna Fazio Yard SaleThis one snuck up on me as I just found out our semi-annual community yard sale is scheduled for Oct. 4. That Saturday from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. is the opportunity for our residents to open their garage doors to residents from all over the county to come and purchase tools; jewels; knick knacks and a vast assortment of other treasures. There isnt much time to get the word out but well do the best we can. We want to insure that people know what a great community wide yard sale this truly is. All are welcome to take part in this special event that gives us time to clear out anything we dont want before the winter weather sets in. Oh wait, winter weather; thats right, its Florida; we dont have winter weather. No wonder my snow shovel hasnt sold. Anyway, get ready for another successful yard sale here at Cherrywood.Just danceOn Friday, Sept. 19 from 7 until 10 be at the clubhouse and enjoy the most informal Dance party ever. You wont need tickets; there wont be a 50/50 drawing and the only refreshments that are going to be served are the ones you bring yourself. This is a joyous experiment for all our residents. Rich Becotte, our resident DJ extraordinaire will be firing up the tunes selected from his vast repertoire on songs. There will be waltzes; tangos; polkas; country western; novelty tunes like the Y.M.C.A. and many others. This is an all request evening with no frills. Bring your own beverages and snacks; bring your friends and bring you smiles. Put on your dancing shoes and come out for an evening of dancing in the totally relaxing atmosphere of our welcoming clubhouse.

See you there.Veterans Club MeetingOn Thursday, Oct. 2, your Veterans Club will be holding its regular monthly meeting. This particular meeting is of vital importance because there will be a discussion of the upcoming Veterans Day program on Nov. 11. This Veterans Day will be historic. There will be dignitaries from the College of Central Florida on hand as a service animal is donated by the Veterans Club in honor of that institution of higher learning. The Colleges mascot is the Patriot; so the service dog will be named Patriot. Julie Drexel of the Patriot Dog Project will be on hand to introduce the dog and accept the check. She will be joined by members of the SPCA; the news media and other special guests. We will also have a guest speaker; Mr. Alex Reid II. He is from Baldwin Bros. Funeral and Cremation Society. He will discuss preplanning and various other services provided by his company. Alex will be speaking in place of Fred Peters of the SPCA who was originally scheduled. Fred was injured in a freak accident and will be rebooked when he has healed. Our best wishes to Fred for a speedy recovery. Because we are an active club and provide information through our activities and guest speakers that our meetings are open to all of the residents of Cherrywood. Your Veterans Club is proud of its work in our community and grateful for the support and help that it receives from the people of Cherrywood. Please come out for the meetings and then enjoy the social time on the patio where we will share liquid refreshments and fellowship.Craft ShowOn Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. join dozens of crafters for our semi-annual Craft Show.

The cast, chorus and company members from the Performing Arts Company of Oak Run debuted with a montage of songs from Hello, Dolly! at this past Saturdays donut drop-in at the Orchid Club at Oak Run. The score was from the chosen performance for this falls musical at the community. Practices have been underway for over one month and the cast is anticipating another sellout show for the full program which will take stage on the 10th, 11th and 12th of October The company wore their show t-shirts which were arranged by Ron Manford. We like for everyone to consistently wear (and wash when necessary) these shirts to help get word out in the community about the show. Many that have not attended a PACOR production will ask about the show and it will naturally lead to a ticket sale, comments Mr. Manford. The donut drop-in is the venue of choice for many to purchase tickets, and sales were brisk. However, we still have seating available for each show and general admission is available at the door. Billie Gable, ticket sales chair commented; the popularity of the show means that tickets have gone a little quicker than usual. Upcoming sales are at the Pancake Breakfast in the Orchid Club on Sept. 27, 8 to 11a.m. and at rehearsal in the Palm Grove Monday, Sept. 29. If these dates are inconvenient, Billie Gable will take your calls at 352-237-1104. PACOR urges firsttimers to make this show their introduction to the company and perhaps consider joining. Hello, Dolly! is a lively and joyful production that will be sure to please.Royal Oaks Womens 18 Hole GolfAnother good day of golf on Sept. 9 and some more wonderful winners.

We are considering the newly renovated and expanded Mesa De Notte Italian Restaurant! Call Norma at 352-854-1910 for details of our monthly lunch outings. Our fall meeting will be held on Sunday, Sept. 28 at 2 p.m. at the Island Club. We will be coming up with new ideas for events! At this meeting, we will discuss plans for Dear Readers, do any of you have a bucket list? I am not sure but I think this idea of listing all the things you would like to do before you leave (you know what I mean by leave) or get too old to do those things came from a movie by that name. If I had ever decided to have a bucket list I dont think I would have included visiting a Democratic Club. Dont get me wrong it just never occurred to me because I am the other one. Keep reading because I know you are thinking where she is going with this list business. Thursday night I had to open up the Orchid Club sound room for the Democratic Club and decided to stay for the meeting. It was the first time in my life I had been to a Democrat meeting. There were several people I knew there, who knew I was not really one of them but it was advertised open to all residents. I am so glad I remained for this very interesting program. Their guest speaker was Judy Johnson, former Marion County Commissioner and presently Vice President of the League of Women Voters. She gave a very informative presentation, including pros and cons, of the three proposed amendments to Florida Constitution. Please watch the Citizen for complete description of these proposals as it gets closer to election. It was a good meeting and there should have been many more people present. I commend Mike Davis, president and Sandy Wolfe, vice president for this important club in our community. How great is democracy when all parties can come together to listen, share and ask questions. Maybe I should start a bucket list! Now to some of the happenings of our other clubs. Before I forget, do any of you know of one of our residents who will be turning 100 years old before end of year? Please contact me if you do.

OAK RUNCONTINUED FROM PAGE 18 We thank Ann for taking the leadership position for this fun event; and we even spelled her name correctly this time. In a previous issue I misspelled Anns name; my apologies Ann.From the ReporterFor nearly three years I have had the privilege and honor of being the reporter for Cherrywood. To say it has been a terrific and fabulous experience would be a severe understatement. The time has come however for me to put up my pen and my feet. I used to like to go out on the week-end and party. Now, my back goes out and doesnt even invite me to go with it. It chooses the time and place with no regard to me. The result is Im slow moving; bent over and Suzi will attest to the fact that it sometimes makes me just a tad grumpy. In addition, while time and my body allow; I am going to be visiting the best gift my children ever game me; my grand kids. I have an obligation to spoil them and to tell them secrets about their parents. Also, there are many bad habits I can teach them. Besides my back and my family being considerations of this decision; Im going to continue working on the book I am writing. While sitting and writing is difficult now; I am optimistic that this too shall pass and I can devout more time to that endeavor. If there were some way I could continue to be a part of the CitizenNewspaper; and still fulfill those dreams; I would relish the idea. Few things in my life have brought me as much satisfaction and pleasure as reporting on the many activities and the awesome people Ive come to know here in Cherrywood. Working with Editor Jim Clark has been one of the highlights of my writing career. He has been a mentor and a guide from the first day I started. He has continued in this role and become a friend. Holly Bragdon has been our resident photographer and she has done a terrific job. There are no words to thank her for her dedication; professionalism and talent. Suffice it to say shes the best. CHERRYWOODCONTINUED FROM PAGE 17 After the Oct. 3 issue, except for the Veterans Club publicity, we will need some one or some ones to keep everyone informed about the many activities here in our community. If you have any interest in doing this; I strongly suggest you let me know as soon as possible. We can work together for the next couple of weeks to make the transition smooth and painless. My duties with the Veterans Club will end following the Veterans Day Observance on Nov. 11 of this year. Because this years celebration is going to be one of the biggest in our history as an organization; I am committed to providing extensive coverage of that event. Being the reporter for Cherrywood is a marvelous opportunity for anyone who loves people and cares about our community. You will receive the help and cooperation from those who head up the various clubs; committees; and special events. In addition, you will have a chance to make a difference. Finally; and most importantly; you will get to know and work with your marvelous neighbors and fellow residents. If you have any suggestions or ideas for the Cherrywood Section of the Citizen newspaper; please contact me at ssg6jae@gmail.com Pastor Gary O.

RELIGIONCONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 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. Mix oil, garlic powder and pepper in large bowl. Add broccoli and tomatoes; toss to coat well. Spread in single layer on foil-lined 15-by-10-by-1-inch baking pan. Roast in oven 13 minutes or until broccoli is lightly browned. Meanwhile, mix vinegar, honey, basil and oregano in small bowl. Drizzle over roasted vegetables after removing from oven; toss to coat well. Serve immediately. Herbed Green BeansServings: 4 1 pound trimmed green beans 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 2 teaspoons olive oil 1/2 teaspoon finely crushed McCormick Rosemary Leaves 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Thyme Leaves 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt from McCormick Sea Salt Grinder 1/8 teaspoon McCormick Ground Black Pepper Place beans in medium saucepan.

IN THE KINGDOM OF ICE: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeanette By Hampton Sides In the late 19th century the North Pole was an unattainable object of dreams for people who had to know what was Up There. Responding to this public gripped by Arctic fever and clamoring for exploration was a dashing, largerthan-life naval commander, George DeLong, and the eccentric sole owner of the New York Herald newspaper and third richest man in America at the time, James Gordon Bennett. The latter was not satisfied to merely report the news: he created it. Earlier hed dispatched Henry Stanley to find Dr. Livingstone in Africa. Never mind that Livingstone didnt want to be found, the story sold hundreds of newspapers. Now Bennett was geared up for another epic story. Strange beliefs were circulating then like the idea, held even by eminent geographers, that beyond a girdle of pack ice at the North Pole was a temperate paradise of warm water, myriad new species, and navigable seas. However, the subtitle of this exhaustively researched and brilliantly written tale braces readers for the realities of the venture. Although Bennett money insured that the USS Jeanette, named after the publishers sister, would be the best equipped vessel with a supplemental steam engine, specially enforced bow, reinforced hull, plus arc lights from Edison, and straight-from-the-lab telephones from Bell, nothing prepared the 33-man crew for this dangerous mission to uncharted territory. Despite its many accoutrements their vessel was still just a wooden ship. On a clear July 8th afternoon in 1879 the USS Jeanette set sail from San Francisco with thunderous cheers from the assembled crowd. But there was no celebration by Sunday, Sept. 7 when the men felt a new pressure working on the starboard side, and then suddenly a large floe shoved the Jeanette onto a shelf of ice, causing her to list crazily. Other floes tightened around the ship. Under the pressure, her timbers began to tick and groan. Within minutes, the Jeanette was completely imprisoned. Trapped in the ice for nearly two years, the crew survives the cold and illness only to lose the ship a week after it is finally released. In the second act of this harrowing tale, the men must trek toward Siberia on unstable ice and turbulent seas.Kingdom is a spellbinding story of heroism and determination.

It still seems plenty hot to me, except for some early mornings when its nice to be outside. While there have been some hurricane and tropical storms, they have stayed away from us. All we get are rain and some wind which bring us to Pun Alley stories.Hurricanes and himmicanesHurricanes were traditionally named after women because they arrive all windy and wild, and when they leave they take your house and your car. Nowadays, hurricanes are also named after men because theyre noisy, make a huge mess, and if you look into their eyes theres nothing there.Youll fall for this oneWhen the Ocala movie theater was in its original glory, a fellow worked there seating people and generally maintaining order. Every year, in October, when the leaves were turning, he would hold The Autumn Barbecue of the Year at his house. This event grew in popularity until it was the place to be. Each year, as the day approached, people would ask each other, Will I see you at The Fall at the House of Usher?Lassies cousinA dog always showed up at The Autumn Barbecue of the Year. The dog would go around eating discarded watermelon and cantaloupe pieces. Nobody knew who his owner was, but they all knew the dog was a melon collie.Goin to seedOut on Route 484 a farmer went out into the fields early one autumn morning to do some planting. He instructed his hired hand to hook the seeder to the tractor and seed winter wheat in the next field. About a half-hour later, the man came running back to the farmer. Whats the matter? the farmer called out. The man yelled as he approached, Theres a whole bunch of tomatoes still growing in that field from last springs planting. What should I do? The farmer calmly turned to him and says: Damn the tomatoes; full seed ahead.RaindropsSummers out and autumns in, from swimming pools to football pools. Have you ever notice how groups of lions tend to move on just before autumn? Of course, pride goeth before the fall. A baker pushed his wife into the cake mix. She claims shes a battered woman. Up north the leaves are beginning to fall, and soon only two things will be hanging from the trees the last leaf and the first football coach. She criticized my apartment, so I knocked her flat. Autumn is a season for big decisions, like whether or not its too late to start spring-cleaning. I was recently on a tour of Latin America, and the only regret I have was that I didnt study Latin harder in school so I could converse with those people. I preserve vegetables and fruits in jars and store them on my closet shelves because I can. Cable TV has a 24-7 weather channel. We had something like that where I grew up. We called it a window. The landscaper thought gardening magazines were fun to leaf through. When a duck walked into a bar the bartender looked at him and said, Hey, buddy, your pants are down.Anyone home?A social worker who had recently transferred from Miami to the Tennessee mountains was touring her new territory when she came upon the tiniest cabin she had ever seen. Intrigued, she knocked on the door. Anybody home? A childs voice answered, Yep. Is your Father there? Pa? Nope, he left before Ma came in. Well, is your Mother there? Nope, Ma left just before I got here. Are you never together as a family? Sure, but not here. This is the outhouse.Stalking cattleCorned beef is from cows that have been raised in cornfields. They graze on the corn, get fattened and ready for slaughter. In the fall, just before the harvest, the cattle are rounded up. Unlike cattle grazing in grasslands, the corned beef are difficult to see because the corn stalks are so tall. A specially trained dog, known as a corn dog, assists in the roundup.Stubborn leavesA man, visiting one of the art galleries in Gainesville with his wife, stood for minutes staring at a painting of a woman dressed only in a few leaves.

the world I should call at 10 oclock in the evening. Then it dawned on me. I will call the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. I do not know why I did not think of this before. So, I pressed the speed dial and the phone started ringing. As soon as the phone started ringing, a thought danced in my mind. What in the world am I calling her for? What in the world would I talk about? Before finishing all of the questions floating around my cranium my wife answered the phone. The first words out of her mouth were, What did you forget now? It seems that whenever I go on a trip, before I get too far down the road I remember something I forgot. When I assured her that I had not forgotten anything, I sensed a slight pause on the other end and then she said, Did you miss your plane? Within the next few minutes I was bombarded with question after question, all I did was call, and at this point, I could not remember why I had called her. It just seemed like the thing to do at the time. After she settled down a little bit and her panic seizure ceased, I told her I just called to call. Oh, she said, not knowing how to answer that. I was shocked. It had never happened before. I am going to cherish this memory for as long as I live. I actually caught her when she had nothing to say. Needless to say, I relished that moment because it will probably never happen again. After I hung up, I sat sipping some more coffee when one of my favorite verses came to mind. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear (Isaiah 65:24). My comfort rests in the fact that God is closer to me than my cell phone.

While sin can be confessed any time of the year, Jews feels especially close to God during this holy time of the year. In the Jewish faith, there is no such thing as Original Sin. While human beings may be flawed by virtue of them being human, the concept of sin in Jewish circles is looked upon differently. The word for sin is taken from an archery term, which means to miss the mark. When a Jew sins, he/she has missed the mark by not following one of Gods commandments and is therefore obligated to repent. The Jewish word for repentance is teshuvah, which actually means to turn back to God in true remorse and away from sin. The special time of the year for this is during the Ten Days of Repentance, the ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur. For sins that were done against God, i.e. using the holy name in a profane manner, atonement is gained by directing prayers to God in true remorse and in confession of the sin. For acts done towards human beings, forgiveness can only be obtained by confronting the wronged party and asking for forgiveness. Traditionally this can be done for three times, according to the great scholar, Maimonides, and if the victim does not forgive the sinner, then the sin falls upon the victim. Judaism places great emphasis on justice. We believe that God is a God of justice and expects human beings to act accordingly. While the concept of hell is not a Jewish one, Jews do believe that somehow justice will be served if not now, then in the world to come. In the Jewish faith, one confesses his/her sins during prayer. True repentance occurs when confronted High Holiday season a special time with the same sin; the sinner resists temptation and does not sin again. (Ok, I admit this part is really hard. I love chocolate and I probably eat too much of it, but I just cant resist when something chocolate comes my way). Our prayers are directed to God, we have no intercessory. The liturgy does call upon the merits of our ancestors, the matriarchs and patriarchs, but it is God who ultimately forgives us. It is Jewish tradition to fast to show our intent to repent. Deprivation of food also sensitizes us to the plight of the hungry and less fortunate among us. With this concept in mind, mere prayer and confession alone is not enough for true teshuvah, we must also seek for justice and mercy in our world by the giving of tzedakah, righteousness, charity in order to ensure Gods forgiveness. Admitting ones faults is not an easy thing to do. We are not computers that can be programmed to erase flaws by hitting the delete button. Taking stock of ourselves involves meditation and introspection, acts which require us to take time out of our very busy lives. As the calendar turns and the season of fall comes upon us, let us all turn and resolve to be better people to workers, family, friends and ourselves. Let us strive to live following the Golden Rule, what is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. May the New Year of 5775 bring us closer to a world of peace and prosperity for us. Lshannah tovah! Happy New Year! (Rosh Hashanah begins on September 24 at sunset and continues on September 25-26, 2014) From your writerThis will be my last column after eight years of Judis Journal. I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge of Judaism with you, my readers, and I appreciate your support. Shalom means hello, good-bye and peace. I bid you shalom. Judis Journal Judi Siegal Judi Siegals final column Powerful blasts will echo throughout the Ocala community as Rabbi Yossi Hecht blows the shofar, or rams horn, for Jews across town to celebrate the Jewish New Year which begins Wednesday, Sept. 24. Blowing through the narrow end of the horn of a ram like a trumpet, Yossi Hecht will herald the beginning of the Jewish New Year, called Rosh Hashanah. The shofar is sounded each year during the holiday to herald the beginning of the Jewish season of repentance. Because of its importance, Jews have traditionally been required to hear the shofar on Rosh Hashanah. All are invited to hear this powerful performance and fulfill one of Rosh Hashanas most important rituals. The shofar is the central symbol of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanahs two daysthis year on Thursday, Sept. 25 and Friday, Sept. 26. Services begin at 10 a.m. during which the shofar will be blown and are followed by a delicious holiday Lunch buffet. In addition to alerting the Jewish community to the approaching holiday, the sound of the shofar is also a reminder of Gods kingship and a call to repentance. The blast of the shofar is a powerful call to repentance, and the opening act to one of the happiest times of a new year, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht who will blow the shofar for the community. Wherever Jews are in Ocala and The Villages, I invite them to witness this meaningful alert to the season! Wherever our Jewish family is, we make sure to hear the sound of the shofar and get excited for the year to come, said David Shapiro President of The Chabad Jewish Center. The shofar reminds us that while we should take the new year to improve ourselves and our community, we also have plenty of reason to celebrate what we have. Other Rosh Hashanah programs include Rosh Hashanha Evening Service, Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m., followed by a gourmet glatt kosher dinner at the Hilton of Ocala. All are welcome! No membership or affiliation is required! English Hebrew Prayer Books are provided. All services are free of charge donations are appreciated! For more information about Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, visit www.JewishMarion.org/HighHolidays.

Rabbi to blow rams horn in several Ocala locations Read the classifieds Meditation is supposed to be good in many ways for people who practice this on a regular basis at least 20 minutes a day. Now there is a group that would appreciate it if meditators do their own practice meditation every Sunday indefinitely around the world at the same moment. It would be at 11 a.m. in Ocala. They feel the global effort will restore peace and harmony and heal Earth. It would also help create positive changes for the whole human society.On the Road Again Travel ClubBob Woods On the Road Again Travel Club has added two new coordinators to the club, John and Annette Ware.

Teams like Dr. Dunn and Great Clips were expected to be in the battle for first place, but lo and behold it didnt turn out that way. The Dr. Dunn team with its powerhouse hitters was never able to put it all together. Much like the present day Red Sox, they ended up in last place with all the teams asking what went wrong. The Great Clips team started out in the basement but made strides during the year and was within first place mid season, but also faltered during the end of the season. The one team that was there almost to the end was the Tee Pee Tire team which made a run for the top and was within a stones throw from taking over first place.

be, to see in the paper that Munroe Regional Medical Center wants to take more money given to them from the government (me) to have social workers teach school children healthy habits. Isnt that the job of parents? That money should be better put to use to lower medical costs. Ive paid taxes all my life and still do, federal, state and county etc. I say if you want to get health care, child care etc., you must work for it and pass a drug test if required, I had to pass a drug test in order to keep my job think thats discrimination, well then I was discriminated against in order to keep my job. But we know that its easier to get welfare then find a job. You might say there isnt any work here, well guess what, we moved many times to where the jobs were; surely they can do the same. Yes, Ive had to take on two or three jobs at times to make ends meet, it didnt kill me. We have to admit that this is getting out of hand and we cant afford it anymore. People have forgotten that nothing is free in this world, someone has to pay for it and it comes at a high cost to those of us who have worked hard all our lives. Yes, Im mad and so should you. A long time taxpayer now retired and wanting to stay that way, I earned it! N. Poirier OcalaBe vigilantWe must be vigilant about the lefts constantly trying to push their agendas on us. They stake out positions and see how the public responds. If theres sufficient outrage, they pull back, and try the same tactic soon after. For example, on May 19, 2011, Pres. Obama proposed reducing Israels size to the borders it had prior to the 1967 Six-Day War. That met with such outrage that the White House quickly walked it back. Recently in Rochester Hills, Michigan, four employees of a high school denied entrance to a students father. His crime? He was an Army officer in uniform. The superintendent quickly condemned the denial, saying his district had no policy forbidding uniformed military from entering the building. We have yet to hear from those four employees, whod told the officer it was school district policy. Now in Ocala, the city proposed to fine two business owners for displaying the Dont Tread on Me flag, which was used during the Revolutionary War and is sometimes used by Tea Partyers today. Again, outrage followed, so the left is walking it back. The price of liberty is truly eternal vigilance.

I know some people who just delight in flying from one point to another point. If you would count all of those people who do, I would be nowhere on that list. Recently I had to travel involving changing planes, which involved spending a night at the Orlando airport. I could have come home, which is about two hours away, or I could spend the night and catch the plane the next day. It would cost me about the same to stay overnight at the airport as it would to travel back home and then return to the airport the next day. So, after all of my meticulous calculations, I decided to spend the night at the airport. I determined while there to get the most of my nights stay at the airport. The hotel at the airport was one of those big international hotels. It had more stories than a politician on the campaign trail. As is usually the case, my room was on one of the top stories of the hotel. Checking in at the front desk, I then went to my room and settled down for the evening. I was not going to waste my time huddled in my hotel room, rather, I was going to look around and experience the nightlife at this international airport. Have you ever made a decision, then looking back on it you thought to yourself, Self, we are never going to do that again. Such was my case. I decided to get some supper around 8 oclock in the evening. This, I found out, was the time high society folk eat. Why they eat so late, I will never know. But, since I was with high society, I decided to act and eat like high society. The restaurant in this international hotel was one of those highfalutin restaurants where you really do not know what is on the menu. The menu was in every language except English. Fortunately, they had some pictures and fortunately, my index finger was still in God is closer to me than my cell phone Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder good working order. I ordered my supper, set back and observed the high society all around me. One thought that stumbled through my brain at the time was, I wonder if these people in this restaurant know that I am not part of high society? About this time the wine steward, I guess that is what he is called, came by to take my wine order. The only wine I know is spelled with an H. When I declined the wine, people began to suspect I was not part of high society. I guess you cannot be part of high society unless you wine a little. I finished my supper and decided to wander around in the huge lounge area on this floor. Everybody there was talking and so I got an order of coffee, went to a couch, sat down and just observed what was going on around me. One thing I noticed was that most people seemed to be on their cell phone. What would happen in our society if cell phones suddenly stopped working for three minutes? There would be such a panic across our country that nobody would actually survive. I decided I should call someone on my cell phone. After all, I am trying to fit in with this high society. My dilemma came when I tried to figure out who in PLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE11 000JB93 Aff ordable & Unique Day Trips and Multiday Adventur es Call Vi vo Tour s for more inf orma tion & call for our Ocala Trip Schedule 386-871-4563 www.viv otours.com Three Ocala pickups!

It starred Leslie Nielson in a dramatic role, Walter Pigeon, and Anne Francis. There were lots of special effects and a robot named Robby. Elaine Smith gave information before the movie. She mentioned that it has a solid script and that the technology in this movie has been used in Star Trek and Lost in Space. After the movie, Smith led a discussion from the audience that was informative & interesting.Concert ChorusThe On Top of the World Concert Chorus is very excited about its new director, Audrey Strong. Audrey comes from Syracuse, New York. She has a masters degree in music from the University of Buffalo. She has taught music to elementary children for 30 years. She and her husband retired just a year ago and moved to Ocala where they live in Palm Cay. In New York she also participated in musical and dramatic shows in community theater. She is a soprano who once sang the National Anthem for the Buffalo Bills. She currently sings in the Marion Civic Chorale and hopes to sing in the chorus with the Ocala Symphony. Audrey brings a lot spirit and energy to our chorus. Her goal is to encourage the members to feel good about singing and have fun with the music. Audrey Strong OTOWCONTINUED FROM PAGE 22 BY JEAN DIPIERO Special to the CitizenOn Saturday, Sept. 13, the Indigo East ladies held their luncheon with the theme of Lets Make A Deal. A wonderful crowd turned out. Each table was decorated with fall colored tablecloths, plates and vases of fall leaves were the centerpieces. The menu consisted of cheese manicotti, tossed salad, bruschetta, Italian bread with dipping spices, various desserts and with your choice of drink. Many prizes were given and the finalists were Carol May, Charlotte Sodetani and Bonnie Berryman. The big winner was Bonnie Berryman who won a silver beaded clutch purse with mirror and diamond stud earrings. A 50/50 raffle was held and the winners were Lois Nix, Anita Burnham and Barbara Martyn.

Indigo East ladies luncheon: Lets Make a Deal Ladies at the Indigo East luncheon. As part of National Child Passenger Safety Week, AAA The Auto Club Group joins organizations nationwide to encourage parents and caregivers to make sure their children are riding in a safe seat. Three out of four car seats today are installed incorrectly, said Michele Harris, director of traffic safety culture, AAA The Auto Club Group. Too often, we see kids who are in a car seat thats installed incorrectly or not using an age-appropriate booster seat. As we recognize Child Passenger Safety Week Sept. 14-20, its a timely reminder to be sure children are safe and secure in the right seat for them. One of the most frequent car seat mistakes is the positioning of harness straps. If straps are too loose, children will not be properly restrained in the event of a crash. This may subject them to higher crash forces, or even ejection from the seat altogether. Harness straps should lie flat and not have any twists. The harness should be snug enough that you cannot pinch any extra material at the childs shoulder. With schools back in session, carpooling among parents increases, which can result in situations where children are not riding in a car seat or booster seat. A recent AAA Consumer Pulse survey found that 45 percent of people surveyed in Florida agree its difficult to make arrangements to have booster seats available for other peoples children. The use of booster seats can reduce injuries by 45 percent compared to using an adult safety belt alone, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Children who have outgrown their fivepoint harness car seat by weight or height should use a booster seat until they reach 4 feet, 9 inches, typically between the ages of 8-12. For younger children using a five-point harness car seat, many hospitals offer car seat installation classes and car seat inspection stations provide certified child passenger safety technicians to inspect seats to make sure they are installed properly. To find an inspection station or learn more, visit SafeSeats4Kids.AAA.com. Beginning Jan. 1, 2015, every driver in Florida will be required to use a child restraint device for children until age 6. Child safety seat: Proper use urged Marion County Utilities changes phone numbersMarion County Utilities customer service center changed locations and phone numbers this week. On Sept. 15, the department opened in its new location just off U.S. Highway 441 in Belleview (11800 SE U.S. Highway 441, Belleview). The phone number for customer service is now 352-307-6000.

Check your facts, listen carefully, talk to people who have actual experience in the community and the schools, and then get out and vote. Our childrens future depends upon it. Dave Hartley Retired Marion County teacherEditors Note: There are only four candidates remaining in the race for School Board. Two, the challengers noted above, have come out against the tax, and one incumbent, who was not at the recent forum, has failed to commit to backing the tax. No to YohoCongressman Ted Yohos recent votes for two bills demonstrate his hypocrisy and remind us why he does not deserve a second term. The misnamed Child Tax Credit Improvement Act (H.R. 4935) eliminates a life-saving feature of the tax code for millions of working class parents while giving more money to wealthy families. According to the Office of Management and Budget, a single parent with two children who earns the minimum wage would lose her entire tax credit of $1725 at the same time that a couple with two children earning $150,000 would receive an increased tax credit of $2,200. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office this would add almost $114.9 billion to the U.S. deficits during the next 10 years. The Reducing Regulatory Burdens Act (H.R. 935) eliminates the requirement for obtaining a permit before applying pesticides to waterways. According to the National Resources Defense Council, the Environmental Protection Agency has not received any complaints about this simple permit procedure for protecting the waterways that are used for drinking, swimming and fishing. Yoho ran for office based upon the Tea Party principle of lowering the deficit due to a concern for the future of our children and grandchildren. Instead we find that he is actually in favor of increasing the deficit by throwing more money at his wealthy supporters while not caring that our children and grandchildren will drink from and swim and fish in contaminated waters. A recent Star-Banner editorial criticized Yoho for . carrying water for some of Floridas biggest polluters. H.R. 4935 and 935 are not anomalies. Yohos votes during his tenure have consistently exhibited a total disregard for preserving a healthy environment and he has threatened the economy. The League of Conservation Voters gives Yoho a rating of only 4 percent. Even Marco Rubio has a rating of 11 percent. It is estimated that the government shutdown (that Yoho instigated and supported) cost the economy $25 billion. Economists were aghast at Yohos comment that it would be good for the U.S. to default on its debt, a catastrophe that would devastate peoples retirement funds, the banking industry and the job market. I urge all voters in Floridas Congressional District 3, whatever your political affiliation, to support Marihelen Wheeler, a commonsense schoolteacher from Gainesville who will not be the laughingstock of the nation. Daniel Lack OcalaIts time to speak up!When are we going to stand up and get parents to be responsible for their children? Im sick and tired of being asked to contribute to their school, sports and entertainment. When I was growing up during the depression and after WW2 my parents had no assistance from the government or others to feed, clothe or take care of their children and neither did I. Today people get welfare, EBT cards, telephones, Section 8, food banks and still they ask the tax payer to pay for school breakfast, lunches, supplies etc. How much more do we have to give these people? Weve all seen their buying habits at the store of fast foods, prepared foods and junk foods, instead of getting meats and vegetables and cooking them, heaven knows there not working, so what do they do all day? And they sure have money to buy cigarettes and beer. We seniors have to live on our Social Security and savings, because as responsible people we saved. We have to pay for all these programs given to able bodied people who should go to work and take care of their family. While some seniors cant afford to buy needed medicine or food and must choose which one to buy; these freeloaders go around sitting on their butts and having more children because well it pays more.

We think he is being miscalculated. Hes a crafty politician who conveys subtle messages to millions of immigrants who are already in the U.S. and many more millions who want to cross our borders as soon as they have an opportunity. For many years Mr. Obama has offered a consistent message to immigrant audiences: You embody the American dream, and Im your friend He has told thousands of potential citizens that they are also potential voters, that they are critical to his success, and that they deserve and will have his respect. Although there are a dozen or more half-passed immigration bills gathering dust in the House and Senate, the president says he cant work with the legislators. We suspect hes not unhappy about acting alone to embarrass the gridlocked Congress. Mr. Obama has cleverly postponed until after the November congressional election his suggestion that he can unilaterally improve our dysfunctional immigration. His promised lone action to keep millions of immigrants from being deported will amount to a very large virtual amnesty. To assure that his promises will gather votes, the president whispered to Hispanic lawmakers that he will take care of their Latino supporters by the end of the year. His all alone fix for millions of illegal immigrants may not be reform, but it is smart politics. Reality is that a president cant pull off a one-man immigration reform, but an interesting Washington Post article back in July suggested there are a number of ways in which the system can be fiddled with and tinkered. First off the president can pressure the various federal agencies which deal with immigration to loosen up on their bureaucratic regulations and obstructions. Washington bureaucrats tend to fall in love with their authority and lose dedication to their missions. The immigration agencies have some leeway to loosen agricultural guest worker costs and regulations. They could similarly loosen up requirements for seasonal and service workers. The big question will be whether Congress will stand still and watch Mr. Obama loosen the reigns on immigration rules and regulations, and grant dispensations to millions of unauthorized immigrants who have already settled in. In the meantime, whether our immigration process is reformed or ignored, by the end of this year the number of young migrants from Central America may reach 100,000 who come with expectations they will be fed and sheltered. My family is having a gas crisis, and its becoming a very serious matter in the household. No, not that kind of gas. Its all about gasoline and what kind were going to put into our vehicles. For years, we have had a BP Visa card, the rewards type that gives you a break on future gasoline purchases. No matter what you use the card for, you get credit toward gas, which shows up at the pump where you get an option of whether you want to use it or let it accumulate. Recently I was driving down the road and glanced over to where my friendly BP station should be. All I saw was some guy on a ladder putting up a Marathon sign. Since then, Ive become aware of at least four stations east of the Interstate that have abandoned BP and become Marathon stations at 36th Avenue and East Silver Springs Boulevard; U.S. Highway 27 just off the Interstate; South Pine and State Road 200 and South Pine and 17th Street. The other day I had occasion to be on Pine and I was going to need gas. I finally ended up at Pine and First Avenue, across from Pizza Hut, which at the time was still BP When the pump gave me a choice, I immediately used the 31 cents per gallon reward before all the BP stations were gone. My wife was in one of the stations and asked about it. She was told that BP had to be out of Florida by the end of the year, something about the settlement after the oil spill. I dont know that for sure, but the Texas City BP Refinery was sold to Marathon in late 2012, and since then BP stations all over the Southeast have been converted to Marathon stations. Ive read stories from Florence, Alabama, Starkville, Mississippi, Sebring, Florida and other smaller places about stations in those areas all switching off BP So now Ive started scouring the Internet to see what credit card we will switch to. No matter what, I doubt if it will be as good as the BP card and the benefits that came with it. Around here we have Shell and Chevron and RaceTrak and Valero and Diamond Oil and Kangaroo and various others I cant recall immediately. Reading the reviews of some people on the Web helps you limit your choices, but sometimes you have to take these reviews for what little theyre worth. But if I cant find one that gives me good rewards, Ill go back to what I used to do go to the station that advertises the cheapest prices. Thats the practical side of me or is it the cheapskate side of me?Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and South Marion Citizen.

Several times on this opinion page, we have railed against the anonymous staff that finds rezoning requests compatible with the surrounding area when many people dont think thats true. At the County Commission zoning session Tuesday afternoon, things didnt go well for some of those staff people. During presentations by the developer, he mentioned the eventual widening of Southwest 100th Street and the paving of that road all the way from 80th Avenue to 62nd, passing close by the Cherrywood subdivision. His information came from printed material he had obtained from the county planning office, and the result was that Cherrywood residents helped pack the room, thinking this rezoning case was going to result in that paving activity. But the notation was a bit premature. Chairman Carl Zalak asked where that information was coming from, and the speaker said it was on Page 4 of the materials he was given. Chris Rison of Growth Services went to the microphone and said staff had talked about the growth in that area, which is called the triangle, and that 100th would probably have to be a two-lane paved road with a grass median, running between 80th Avenue and 62nd Avenue, the extension of 60th. Why are we putting this out? Zalak said, obviously annoyed that this information had been published. We (commissioners) havent even talked about this. Kathy Bryant echoed the concern that the information had been put out without commission authorization, saying the group hadnt even considered such a proposal. In addition, the only concern about that road was because of an emergency exit, which would be very close to 80th Avenue and wouldnt have vehicles constantly going in and out. In other words, Growth Services jumped the gun. The paving of Southwest 100th Street is not an issue yet, although it could be in a distant future. And the staff took it upon itself to give out this information, ignoring their bosses, the five commissioners. Maybe this will be the impetus to rein in the staff, something that has been needed for a long time. They should only act on proposals that are planned to come before the commissioners. Speculation is not their job. And were glad that a couple of commissioners told them off. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY County staff gets a tongue-lashing My local BP stations are vanishing Immigration gridlock and crafty Obama READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor Jim Flynn Columnist LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Candidates and taxesThe headline in your Friday, Sept 12 issue I found very disturbing: School Candidates: We have the money. First, this does not represent even the majority opinion of candidates running for the office. Most candidates recognize the need for additional funding and have said so on the record. The article went on to quote a couple of school board candidates who promoted the nave and incorrect idea that the school system has lots of money, but they just simply dont spend it correctly. Would that it were that simple, but a few facts might be helpful: First, the Marion County school budget has been cut over 50 million over the last seven years. The state is funding students at more than 200 dollars less than in 2007. We have the worst record of any county in Florida in class size violations, which have come about due to our lack of funds to hire new teachers. We spend less than almost any county in Florida on administrative costs. No one who has any idea of what a principal or vice principal does in a school would suggest they should be split between schools. This is a real indication of the naivet and lack of practical knowledge a couple of candidates exhibit. The idea that there is no accountability or knowledge in school finance is another clueless statement. There are innumerable local, state, and federal laws which regulate virtually every cent in the school system. This is a huge budget, and it takes a team of experts to manage it. Some of these candidates should visit the finance office and learn something before making irresponsible statements. Most funds are only available to spend in very specific ways. As school board members learn very quickly, there is very little money available they actually control. The idea that there is a big sack of money in a closet somewhere in the county office and one can use it any way one wants is just silly. The we have plenty of money, is the same old argument we have heard over and over again by folks who just want to cut yet more from education. We heard this during campaigns two and four years ago, and look where that got us. The idea that all these students cannot read and write is nonsense as well.

restriction, another bone of contention with the neighboring communities. Despite a map that shows it, there are no plans for a gas station in the center of the development. The cost of houses would range from $200,000 to $300,000. The development, nearly surrounded by other housing areas, will have two methods of access off the highway. Also planned is an emergency entrance, locked, at the southwest part of the property near Southwest 100th Street. That entrance would probably put traffic into a cul-desac in Hidden Lake. But the developer said it would only be used to allow access to emergency vehicles when the main roads were blocked. Many of the speakers emphasized the Countryside equine community, with horses and barns. Some said that with young people, including teenagers, allowed in the new development, which would have houses that back up to Countryside, there would be a possibility of vandalism, more fireworks than from the 55-and-over crowd and, as one lady said, lead to teenagers jumping the fence, going into her barn and smoking dope. Another complained of noise from partying, noise that wouldnt come from the 55-and-over residents. At that Zalak commented, Have you ever been down to The Villages. A later speaker battling for a higher wall, said that Even if they party in The Villages, they dont jump as high, drawing a muchneeded laugh from the crowd. Another speaker noted that the original zoning in 2008 had an age-restricted area, but that was now being removed from the plans. People who have lived here over the years should not be at the mercy of developers. One lady had a message for the developers: Knock it off and leave us alone. But for the most part, the developers got what they wished, although there are still hoops to jump through before the burning of trees, another contested item, takes place.

Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that dont accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. Cover skin with clothing or repellent. Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long-sleeves. Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535 are effective. Cover doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out. Keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screens on windows, doors, porches, and patios. Tips on Repellent Use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some reMOSQUITOCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 pellents are not suitable for children. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET are generally recommended. Other U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing. In protecting children, read label instructions to be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the CDC, mosquito repellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three years. DEET is not recommended on children younger than two months old. Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply repellent first to their own hands and then transfer it to the childs skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturers directions. For more information on what repellent is right for you, consider using the Environmental Protection Agencys search tool to help you choose skin-applied repellent products: http://cfpub.epa.gov/oppref/insect/#searchform.

A PUD zoning request before the County Commission on Tuesday afternoon took place regarding property that is bordered on two sides by Countryside Farms and on another side by Hidden Lake and Southwest 100th Street, just off State Road 200 across from On Top of the World. In the end, following a motion by Stan McClain, commissioners voted to require the PUD to have a 30-foot buffer with a six-foothigh wall. The only dissenter was Commissioner Kathy Bryant, who wanted to have an eightfoot-high wall. Countryside residents and their neighbors even mentioned a 10-foot wall, but in the end their pleas fell on deaf ears of four of the commissioners. Joining McClain in the 4-1 vote were Earl Arnett, Carl Zalak and David Moore. Part of the argument was obscured by complaints about the possible paving of Southwest 100th Street, but commissioners made it clear, more than once, that this was not part of the planned development (see editorial, Page 8). When completed, the development will have 363 units of varying types. It will be a gated community with deed restrictions and a homeowners association. There will also be a clubhouse, tennis courts and a pool. However, there will be no age Two years and more than a thousand miles separated Giuseppe DiBella and his beloved toy fox terrier, Nika, but a tiny microchip (along with some help from friends) is bringing them back together. Two years ago, Nika went missing from DiBellas yard in Newburg, New York. He contacted law enforcement, posted fliers and even put her microchip number online to no avail. Though the months went on, DiBella said he didnt lose hope. I never gave up, he said. I kept wishing she was OK. Last week, a thin toy fox terrier found her way to the front door of an Ocala home. Abby Rivera, a friend of the homeowner, brought the little dog to her workplace (a family veterinarian), hoping the dog had a microchip. Staff scanned Nika, found a chip and called Marion County Animal Services with the stray dog and contact information for someone who lived in New York. An animal control officer brought Nika to Marion County Animal Services where staff there tried to find the tiny dogs owner. To DiBellas disbelief, he received an email from Marion County Animal Services telling him his toy fox terrier was at the shelter. I didnt even know where Marion County was, DiBella said. I was so surprised when I realized it was in Florida. Nikas journey isnt quite over, but she is a whole lot closer to home. A family friend who lives in Deltona picked up Nika from the Animal Center to stay with her until Thanksgiving when her brother is visiting from New York. From there, Nika will travel back home to New York where shell be reunited with her owner who never gave up on his little dog. Nikas story is a beautiful example of the value of microchips, Marion County Animal Services Director Deborah Horvath said. Collars and tags can be removed or lost, but microchips provide a lifelong means of identification. Microchips help reunite countless families, whether the stray animal is one or 1,000 miles away from home. We encourage all pet owners to microchip their pets. Microchips are tiny chips about the size of a grain of rice implanted in pets skin between their shoulder blades. Animal shelters and veterinarian staff can scan stray pets to obtain the chips unique number, which is linked to the owners contact information in a database. Microchipping at the Animal Center is only $15, and takes only a few minutes. Call 352-671-8700 or visit the website at www.marioncountyfl.org/animal for more information. Dog missing in New York found in Ocala Microchip helps ID animal that vanished two years ago Nika showed up in Ocala. Objections ignored, zoning case approved PLEASESEEZONING, PAGE3 The Florida Department of Health in Marion County has advised residents there has been an increase in mosquito-borne disease activity in areas of Marion County. A horse tested positive for West Nile illness and there is a heightened concern that residents will become ill. The Department issued a mosquito-borne illness advisory on July 9 after two horses in less than two weeks tested positive for the Eastern equine encephalitis virus. So far in 2014, eight horses have tested positive for Eastern equine encephalitis. The recent positive test for West Nile virus in a Marion County horse is the first time this year West Nile virus has been detected in Marion County. The Department reminds residents and visitors to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes and to take basic precautions to help limit exposure. To protect yourself from mosquitoes, you should remember to Drain and Cover: Drain standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken Mosquito-borne illnesses on the rise PLEASESEEMOSQUITO, PAGE3 Remembering the victims of 9-11 Here are photos from ceremony at College of Central Florida PHOTOS PROVIDED BY CF Its time to get ready for Halloween on the State Road 200 Corridor.
