Information is also available at the Discovery Center, at 701 NE Sanchez Ave. Natasha Murphy, an intensive reading teacher at West Port High School in Ocala, is Floridas Reading Teacher of the Year. Murphy, a 12-year full-time employee of the district, recently received the news from the Florida Reading Association, a professional organization made up of reading teachers, literacy specialists, and others with professional reading interests. Murphy will formally accept her award in mid-October at the Florida Reading Conference in Orlando. As part of the honor, her registration and accommodation fees are complimentary. Why did she win? Murphy says its because she takes her students on multiple field trips each year to bring reading alive. Her reluctant readers, as she calls them, quickly learn how words on a page translate to real-life experiences. Murphy first worked for Marion County Public Schools as a substitute teacher and paraprofessional. She later moved to full-time teaching at West Port Middle and Liberty Middle before moving to her current position at West Port High. She was also Teacher of the Year at West Port Middle (2005-06) and West Port High (2012-13). A Lake Weir High alumna, Murphy graduated from the College of Central Florida and earned her bachelors degree in religion at St. Leo University.

Rita was born in Lockport, New York on June 21, 1938, to the late Catherine R. (Rundio) and Benjamin P Trudnowski. She was the widow of Frederick W.

Juliet, Tennessee; her grandsons, Jonathan and Jacob Bisher; her step-granddaughters, Linda Carter (Shayne) and Carole Butcher (Jeff); her greatgranddaughter, Chloe Bisher; her step-greatgrandchildren, Hannah and Darick Carter and Allie Butcher; and her cousins, Martha Chilcott, Mary Ann Cutter (Donald) and Joseph Rundio (Beverly) of Lockport, New York; and her grand puppies, Daisy and Moxie. Rita was an Avon Representative for many years. She achieved Presidents Level an exclusive club for Avons top sellers. Rita was employed by Lockport City School District, serving schoolchildren at Washington Hunt School. She taught crocheting and knitting through the New York State Federation of Home Bureaus, Inc., and was an accomplished quilter and needleworker. After moving to Florida she participated in the Big Sun Senior Games and won several medals. Her hobbies included quilting, crafts, bowling, water aerobics, and shuffleboard. Her passion was playing cards and board games, building puzzles, watching game shows and wrestling on television, going on her casino trips to play the slots, and winning at bingo. She handmade Christmas ornaments every year to give to family and friends that will be greatly missed. She loved living at Oak Run and neighbors could see her driving her golf cart to go to the pool and club house. The family received friends at Taylor and Reynolds Funeral Home in Lockport, New York on Saturday, September 13, 2014. A service was held at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, followed by interment at St. Patricks Cemetery. Rita will be dearly missed.

Friday, September 26, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, September 26, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Today is the last day of National Dog Week, a special week that has been observed for 86 years. It was established to create more responsible dog owners. Being responsible, we let the dogs loose on Pun Alley for some doggone stories, but no barking.UnlicensedDuring a countywide drive to round up all unlicensed dogs a patrolman signaled a car to pull over to the curb. When the driver asked why he had been stopped, the officer pointed to the big dog sitting on the seat beside him. Does your dog have a license? he asked. Oh, no, the man said. He doesnt need one. I always do the driving.Willful gain attemptThe young man paid careful attention to his rich old aunt and was especially affectionate to the several dogs she liked so inordinately. When the old lady died, her will provided that the dogs should be left to the nephew.Maids best friendAfter many years of service, a rich lady decided to fire her maid and hire someone younger. When the maid heard the news, she took a steak out of the fridge and threw it to the family dog. Why did you do that? asked the lady of the house. I never forget a friend, replied the maid. That was for his help cleaning the dishes all these years.Dog rentalThe dog rescue agency has started a campaign to lease dogs in hope of getting the dogs adopted. Their slogan is: Leasing dogs is a way to test out a stray. You should check out our low cur rent price.Dog bitesThe man had 72 dogs in his house. The doctor told him to stop whistling in his sleep. I spilled spot remover on my dog. Now hes gone. Harry bought a puppy going cheap at the pet shop. It cost him a fortune because it did bird impressions. The dog is an Arctic explorer. He goes from pole to pole. Toms dog won the California canine surfing competition in the large dog category. Im guessing hes a boarder collie. One day a mother dog told her pups about the birds and the fleas. My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 2.99 cents a can. Thats almost $27 in dog money. They call their dog handyman because he does odd jobs around the house. A dog is mans best friend because he wags his tail instead of his tongue. Are dog biscuits made from collie flour? The dog can play the piano all night. He finds Chopin a breeze as he chews up the keys, but his Bach is far worse than his bite. Husband: My dear, I really dont believe you can ever teach that dog to obey you. Wife: Nonsense, darling. Remember how obstinate you were when we were first married? Like a dogI say, madam, why do you want to get a divorce? My husband treats me like a dog. Does he mistreat you? Does he hit you? No, he wants me to be faithful to him.Hot dogThe Zen master stepped up to the hot dog cart and said, Make me one with everything. The hot dog vendor fixed a hot dog and gave it to the Zen master, who paid with a $20 bill. The hot dog vendor put the bill in the cash drawer and closed the drawer. Wheres my change? asked the Zen master. The hot dog vendor replied, Change must come from within.Shaggy Dog StoryA man walked into a bar with a collie and both proceeded to get blitzed. The dog drank so much it passed out on the floor. When the man went to leave, the bartender yelled, Hey! You cant leave that lyin there! The drunk replied, Thats not a lion. Its a collie.DoggoneA dog followed his owner to school, a fourth grader at a public elementary school. When the bell rang, the dog tried to follow his owner inside, but a teacher noticed him and shooed him back outside, closing the door behind him. The dog sat down outside, whimpering and staring at the closed doors and not understanding why he was refused entry. Then God appeared beside the dog, patted him on the head to comfort him and said, Dont feel bad; they wont let Me in there either.

From your reporterIn todays world, most Americans trust neither their politicians nor the mainstream media. Dishonesty and lies from those seeking office is expected while cover ups and misinformation from the press are accepted as normal. While it may be a surprising and unpopular point of view, I say that this is good news. In a democracy, people should not trust those who make the rules or those who benefit from them. Dissent and differences of opinion are vital to a free society and the press has the obligation of reporting facts free from a political agenda. Unfortunately when the press gains from keeping silent; prospers from bending the truth or seeks to put forth a point of view rather than informing the public; they can do a great disservice to society. In the mainstream press for example; football odds are often given. You can pick a team and learn the point spread right from the sports section of most newspapers. Likewise, in that same section you will find the results of various horse races from tracks across the country. Isnt gambling illegal? What benefit is there to knowing the point spread of a game unless youre placing a bet? Second; offtrack betting is illegal unless you are at a site that is televising the race. If you witness the race; you already know the results so whats the point. Are the papers aiding and abetting in a criminal activity or just printing what is newsworthy? What would happen to their circulation numbers if these statistics and results were not printed? Who is the beneficiary of this information? Serious local issues arise such as the property developments in Marion County but few news stations or other outlets cover them. Proposals and candidates for local elections are rarely covered in depth. Crime reports are stifled and when they are not; often they are misrepresent the true facts of a case. This is understandable because crime reports lower property values; make local law enforcement look ineffective; and make the citizens feel less secure. News outlets would not want that because it would have an impact on their advertising revenues. Failure to report such things however; lulls the public into a false sense of security. It prevents the average citizen from knowing the dangers and hazards of their own neighborhood. Fortunately for us; we have a newspaper that reports the facts; informs us of local issues of importance; keeps us up to date on County and City Council activities and then presents us with a healthy dose of good news about our community. Im speaking of course of the Citizen Newspaper. As its editor Jim Clark pointed out a few weeks ago; the local issues have much more of an impact on our immediate lives than the National or International news. That is why local newspapers such as the Citizen play such a vital role in our well being. For the past two and half years, it has been my honor to work for the Citizen newspaper and Mr. Clark. In that paper you will find honest information about events that are coming up; events that have taken place; news on current issues facing our community and straightforward editorial comments. Some people say that the newspaper is a thing of the past. Everyone will get their news from a computer or hand held device in the future according to the experts. I for one will rue that day. I like the feel of the paper in my hands; I like getting news that I can use from people I can trust. Mr. Clark has kept free of the problems that affect other newspapers. He brings his knowledge; expertise; integrity and fairness into his work; and for that he is an admired and respected member of this community. Men and women with the ethics of Jim Clark are the reason the free press is vital to our freedom. If you have comments or suggestions for the Cherrywood section of the Citizen please contact me at ssg6jae@gmail.com.

Friday, September 26, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com DAPAD_2IN ADVERTISINGTO ADVERTISECall489-2731 www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 26, 2014 The general election this November will have three amendments for voters to consider. Voting should be easy and voters should be informed. This information from the League of Women Voters in Citrus County was published in the Citrus County Chronicle. Following is a brief description of the amendments and how your vote will affect them. Amendments to the Florida Constitution are changes to rules and rights provided by the constitution. An amendment must receive 60 percent of the votes to become law. Amendment 1, the Water and Land Conservation Initiative, dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands. It requires 33 percent of the net revenue collected from the documentary stamp tax (mostly from real estate transactions) over the next 20 years to go toward the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. It ensures that funding will not be diverted to other areas of the budget. A yes vote would provide for long-term funding for environmental conservation without a new tax; remove the reliance on annual reviews of legislative funding for water and land conservation projects; and promote the enhancement of publicly-held recreational lands and possibly contributing to economic growth through increased ecotourism. A no vote would continue to keep the funding for environmental conservation dependent on the Legislatures ability to make budgetary decisions affecting water and land on a year-to-year basis; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to environmental conservation, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League of Women Voters of Florida has studied the impact of this legislation and endorses a yes vote on Amendment 1. Amendment 2, the Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative, allows individuals with debilitating diseases, as determined by a licensed Florida physician, to purchase and use medical marijuana. It enables physicians to authorize medical marijuana to their patients; allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of the drug; requires the Department of Health to register and regulate centers that produce and distribute medical marijuana; requires issuance of identification cards to patients and caregivers; and only applies to Florida residents. A yes vote would provide for the legal use of medical marijuana; continue to prohibit recreational use; and require the Department of Health to monitor the industry, as well as issue ID cards to patients and caregivers. A no vote would not affect the current prohibition on marijuana use in the state of Florida; continue to maintain the enforcement of marijuana laws currently on the books; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to medical marijuana, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League has not taken a position on Amendment 2. Amendment 3, Prospective Appointment of Certain Judicial Vacancies, has the unique distinction of being placed on the ballot by the Florida Legislature. While Amendment 1 and 2 were placed on the ballot in response to citizen initiative, collecting signatures from 8 percent of the number of voters who cast ballots in the most recent presidential election (683,149 signatures were required), Amendment 3 was proposed by joint resolution and passed by three-fifths of each chamber of the Legislature. Amendment 3 would require a governor to prospectively fill vacancies on the Florida Supreme Court or a district court of appeal when a judge retires, fails to qualify for retention election or fails to secure a majority of votes during his or her retention election. A yes vote would invalidate the Florida Supreme Courts interpretation of Floridas Constitution as to who has authority to fill judicial vacancies; enable an outgoing governor to make appointments to the Florida Supreme Court or a district court of appeal; and possibly shorten the time that a judicial appointment is vacant. A no vote would maintain the current system that requires the newly sworn incoming governor to fill judicial vacancies; continue to allow judicial vacancies to exist for up to 120 days, possibly creating workload issues within the court; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to judicial appointments, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League of Women Voters of Florida opposes this amendment and endorses a no vote. Youve all heard the expression When it rains, it pours. Last week I felt as if it was a small hurricane that was drenching me as I got messages from your correspondents. First, in the West Marion Messenger, Carolyn Slocumb is ending her run as a correspondent from Quail Meadow. She has a family situation that requires her to be at home more, and her feeling is that if she doesnt go to some of these events in her community, she cant really write about them. Thats a terrific attitude, and shows that she has a real understanding of what is involved in churning out the column week after week. Ive seen all sorts of stories recently about how people who retire, especially now as the active Baby Boomers reach retirement age, should plan to remain active somehow, some way. Its vital to a retirees health to keep developing interests that keep them busy. Thats why gathering material for the community columns should involve going to various events in person. Its also a great way to get known in your community. Then I got word from Judi Siegal, whose Judis Journal column has appeared in the South Marion Citizen as well as the Citrus County Chronicle, has decided to stop writing. I learned a lot about Judaism from reading her material over the past few years, and Im sorry shes ending her run as a correspondent. Then came John Everlove, who has been writing the Cherrywood column. He may know more about what goes on in his community than anyone, and he shared it with us each week, including pictures almost every week. He is also stepping down. Some people (not other writers) complained to me occasionally that Cherrywood news seemed to dominate the paper. My reply was to ask if they had ever submitted items to the writer in their community. Most of the time the answer was no. End of conversation. If you want more about your community, invite the writer to your clubs activities, or submit stories and pictures. Dont blame another community for having too much news. Just make sure your news gets submitted. Carolyn has gotten another correspondent, Richard Gunther, to volunteer to write the Quail Meadow column. Since he was already the main photographer, things should continue without a hitch. In Cherrywood, as I write this, were still looking for someone to take Johns place. Dont be bashful. If youre one of those who likes to get out and mingle with your fellow residents at various activities, put it in writing and join our staff of great volunteer correspondents. The ability to take pictures always helps, of course. I hope we can get some help where its needed. I need for that pouring to stop.

To be placed into the Constitution, they must get at least 60 percent of the vote. That was placed into the document under election laws after the pregnant pig fiasco years ago. The amendments have been drowned out by the barrage of ads in the governors race with Charlie Crist and Rick Scott running nasty ads, the ad being run by incumbent Pam Bondi in the attorney generals race (does her opponent know that theres an election coming up we rarely see him) and local School Board election news. However, the amendments will have an effect in the lives of many people. Elsewhere on this page, we are running a story from the League of Women Voters in Citrus County that was published in our parent daily newspaper, the Citrus County Chronicle. Its very factual and the only opinion in it is telling you how this particular chapter of the League stands. Its not as hard as two years ago, when we had 11 amendments, to learn as much as you can and make your choice before you go to vote. These three amendments are pretty straightforward. So take the time to read about the items that are going to be on the ballot in November. You owe it to yourself and your fellow citizens to be informed.Dont get careless, learn to yieldMarion County residents have been the victims lately in a number of accidents where they pulled out in front of a vehicle on the highway. One occurred last weekend at State Road 200 and 27th Avenue, when a car making a left turn pulled in front of another vehicle. A worse wreck happened Tuesday evening near Citra, as a woman pulled out of a dollar store parking lot into the path of a semi. She didnt survive. Weve been hearing a lot about accidents such as these recently. So please, pay special attention when youre entering a busy highway. When cross traffic is moving at 50 mph or better, it gets on top of you pretty fast. Dont be a statistic because you were impatient. Be safe and protect yourself, and we all will be better off. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Just 3 amendments easier to follow No man is an island, unless others go A quick look at the ballot initiatives for Nov. 6 READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor LETTER TO THE EDITOR Why the NFL?Now the president and vice president are stepping into the NFL like we dont have more pressing problems. This is a problem but it doesnt start with the NFL, it starts in High School, Aw now, come on parents, you know how it goes. You get a promising football player and then he gets coddled by the school and this continues into college where the coddling is worse. His ego is so bloated he gets that in your face attitude that whatever he does is acceptable because you need him. Now he goes to the NFL. By this time he is out of control. The cheerleaders go after him like bimbos and add to his big ego. Somewhere along the way he was never taught to be a good role model and be thankful he has this God given talent. He really isnt Gods gift to women and should respect them. They should put it in the contracts from college to the NFL and it should be made PLEASESEELETTER, PAGE10 Dear Readers, I dont know about you but I find it is so busy and time flies. I do hope that in all your busyness you might find some time to volunteer. It has been brought to my attention that various organizations are in need of volunteers. The club might be in need of officers and before you say I cant do that find out what the duties are in the various openings. It is not like you are being asked to be on a board of a large corporation and it can be fun. Great way to meet people! Reach Out, neighbors helping neighbors would love to have residents come forward to volunteer. They have teams for medical transportation, home repair, help on your computer, call another each day. Problems with Alcohol group is also available. Oak Run is fortunate to have Reach Out run by volunteers. I sometimes think we would all be better off if we gave a bit of our time helping others and volunteering to give others a break who have worked hard over the years to supply all the activities we have in our community. Perhaps volunteering would put our energy to a better use than being unkind to one another. I appreciate all the invites I receive to attend the various functions but I would never be home but I hope to try to make one here and there. Have a great week and you cant complain about the heat because it is getting a tiny bit cooler. (Call me if you want to know where you can sign up to volunteer) Laura SmithFriends of Oak Run LibraryFriday, Oct. 3, at 1 p.m. in the Orchid Club auditorium, there will be the meeting of Friends of the Oak Run Library with featured speaker, Dave Schlenker, Entertainment Editor of the Star Banner.

Friday, September 26, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 26, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Travel plans could be interrupted by the re-emergence of a workplace problem that was never quite fully resolved. Deal with it at once, and then take off on that well-deserved trip. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Aspects favor cultural activities for sensuous Bovines. Attend a concert or an art show. Better yet, create something yourself (a poem, perhaps?), and dedicate it to someone special. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Respect any doubts you might now be feeling about a new situation. They could be reflecting your inner awareness that some essential information might be missing. Check it out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its important to start the new month with as clean a slate as possible. Either complete all those unfinished tasks or pass them on to others who would be more than happy to take them on. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time to cut down on expenses and tame that urge to splurge. Applying some financial discipline now could help ride out a possible monetary crunch later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Money matters are dominant this week. Recheck your accounts and make sure theyre upto-date. Pay attention to personal issues before they become problems. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might be tempted to employ the same tactics as your adversary, but that could backfire. Better to use the same balanced approach that has worked for you before. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A changing workplace environment could stir up confusion as well as apprehension. Best to ignore the rumors and get the facts. You could find that the changes bring positive elements. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Communication is easier this week with people ready and eager to hear what you have to say. Also, check for possible technical problems before you start your new project. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Aspects favor change for the usually traditional Goat. Opening your mind to possibilities you had ignored could lead you to make decisions you once considered improbable. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Making personal as well as professional adjustments to changing conditions might be easier with more information explaining the hows and whys of the situations in question. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) With growing positive reactions to buoy your confidence, this could be the right time to finish your new project and get it well and truly launched. Summer is over and winter is beginning to give us her cold shoulder. The only way I can really handle winter is the hope of summer coming again in all her warm embraces. I can only take the shivers for so long. In our home, there is a divide over the subject. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage lives for winter and I live for summer. How two people who can be so opposite and still live together harmoniously is one of the mysteries of matrimonial bliss. I endure her complaining about how hot it is during the summer and she somehow endures my shivering throughout the winter. And boy, do I shiver. I am not so sure what it is about winter that is so fascinating for her. Maybe it is because she gets to wear more clothing than she can during the summer. Or, maybe she just likes the cold. That is not exactly true because once I gave her a cold shoulder and I have been paying for that ever since. She does have that cold stare when I am in trouble, but that comes during the summer as well as the rest of the year. Maybe she likes winter because in the middle of winter is Christmas. If anybody loves Christmas, it is my wife. She begins her Christmas planning in January and knows exactly what she is going to buy throughout the year. I think it has something to do with when things go on sale or something like that. Personally, and do not let this get back to her, I think it is just an excuse to go shopping. I will not say she is a Shopaholic, but give her a coupon and she is off to the mall. You did not hear it from me. Also during the winter season is Thanksgiving where my wife outdoes herself in making Thanksgiving dinner for all the family. She makes enough for an army and out of deep respect for her, I eat like an army. Actually, I eat until I hear that little whisper from the other end of the table, Dont you think you have had enough? What she does not understand is, when I am eating I am not thinking. As for me, I enjoy summer and all the laziness associated with summertime. All those lazy, crazy days of summer were designed for people just like me. When it comes to lazy and crazy, I am the expert. I can remember years ago when I was doing something and my wife thought it was a little out of line, she would say, Are you acting crazy? She does not say that anymore because she has concluded, and rightly so, that I am not an actor. If I were acting, she is sure I would get an Oscar. However, something about summer makes a person slow down a little bit and not be in such a hurry. One of my excuses is that it is too hot to do anything today. I love that excuse because my wife always agrees. I cannot use that excuse in winter for obvious reasons. According to her, an activity will warm me up. I have never warmed up to that idea. I like summer because there are so many fun opportunities to get together with family. Every summer we go and spend a week with my son and his family, which is one of the highlights of the summer. I only have one week out of the year to spoil his children so I try to make the best of it. If I had the ability to manipulate seasons, I would make sure that 11 months out of the year it would be summer. I would have to give one month to my wife for winter, but I would only give her one month. That is about all I can handle. Summer is a time to enjoy the nature God has created. It is wonderful to see green grass and green leaves on the trees and watching blossoms turn into full-fledged flowers. What could be better than sitting on the back porch with a tall glass of iced lemonade watching the sunset? I love hearing the crickets in full concert and that only happens during the summer. Here in Florida we have little frogs that think they are crickets and chime in adding their voice to the evening music. Did I mention picnics? What would summer be without a picnic? In my mind, a picnic is an excuse to overindulge in the fine art of stuffing yourself. The picnic is a little different so that somebody cannot query me with, Dont you think youve had enough? The Food Whisperer is not allowed at picnics. After all, at a church picnic it is imperative that I sample every dish brought to the picnic. I do not want to leave anybody out on this. The picnic is the time to let down your hair, if you have any, and just enjoy food and fellowship. It amazes me how fast time flies when you are not paying attention.

PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE11 THE DROP By Dennis LeHane At the same time that Dennis Lehanes The Drop was opening in theaters, the novel, a spin-off from the film script, was appearing in bookstores. Its a small book, just a tad over 200 pages, that takes us back to Mystic River and the bar scene in Boston. According to the flyleaf blurb its a love story wrapped in a crime story wrapped in a journey of faith. The stoic, quietly suffering protagonist, Bob Saginowski, lives in the same house where he was raised and pours brews in his cousins neighborhood bar, filling glasses of deadbeat barflies including a nightly escapee from a nearby nursing home. Actually, cousin Marv no longer owns the bar named after him. It now belongs to Chechen gangsters who use it to launder drug money. Bob sometimes unburdens his loneliness to Father Regan who assures him that some woman with faith in God will see the inner good in Bob. Bob knew the priest meant well but experience had shown him that women saw the love in his heart but preferred a more attractive casing around it. All that changes one night on his way home when Bob rescues an injured bull-terrier puppy among Christmas debris Love story, crime story, journey of faith in a garbage can. He names the dog Rocco and cant stop talking about his new pet to the bored Marv. Finding Rocco also leads him to a pockmarked young woman named Nadia Dunn who helps him care for the dog but who also leads him to her crazy ex-boyfriend Eric who abused the dog but now wants him back. (Eric has to be the most fascinating creep since Stephen Kings Mr. Mercedes.) From here the book builds to its climax on Super Bowl Sunday, the scheduled date for the bars biggest drop, the night all the characters move toward a dangerous conclusion. Gritty, darkly humorous with the usual mix of quirky figures, The Drop isnt vintage LeHane but satisfying all the same. Bookmark Pat Wellington BY KRISTEN AMUNDSON Special to the CitizenThe U.S. education system recently received a report card from the OECD, a think tank for developed countries. Americas grades werent pretty. Twenty-nine countries out-performed the United States in math. Nineteen did better in reading. America fared even worse than the last time the survey was conducted in 2009. Clearly, America needs higher educational standards. But instead of working with state education leaders to implement such standards, some state legislators are waging a turf war over who decides what kids should learn. This pointless infighting must end. Rather than politicize academic standards, lawmakers should collaborate with state education leaders to raise them with the ultimate goal of improving student achievement. Our countrys stagnating performance has serious economic consequences. In 2009, consulting firm McKinsey & Co. found that closing the international educational achievement gap would increase U.S. GDP by $2.3 trillion. McKinsey concluded that Americas underperformance represents the equivalent of a permanent, deep recession. Fortunately, several states are working to close the achievement gap. Massachusetts has implemented high academic standards over the past decade. As a result, the Bay States performance on the NAEP, a federal measure of student achievement, jumped 35 points. Among low-income kids, the gains were even bigger more than 47 points. In other words, while all students are improving, the kids who face the steepest challenges are improving faster. How did Massachusetts do it? First, they set high collegeand career-ready standards benchmarks for what students should know in reading and math for all students. Then they invested in teacher preparation and professional training. Finally, they stayed the course through changes in political administrations. Their bipartisan effort is now paying off. Thats what really works. In most states, boards of education composed of volunteers from the business, medical, educational, and even farming communities articulate academic standards as well as a long-term vision for public education. Because theyre insulated from political pressure, state boards are able to focus solely on improving education for all students. Massachusetts isnt the only state where lawmakers and education boards are cooperating to improve childrens educational opportunities. Kentucky has led the movement to raise academic standards. Many state officials worried that tougher standards would lead to lower student test scores and spark a backlash. But the state board of education and legislators preemptively cautioned communities across the state not to panic if test scores declined as they did initially. Holding students to higher standards generated positive returns. College and career readiness among Kentuckys high school graduates increased almost 25 percent after the math and reading standards were implemented. In Maryland, officials paired rigorous evaluation of teachers with individually tailored professional development to help them improve. More effective teachers have yielded better-performing students. On the NAEP, Maryland posted the second-biggest gains for all students between 2003 and 2011. The states low-income students made the most improvement in the nation. Yet too many lawmakers are ignoring results like these. In the last 18 months, legislators in more than 20 states introduced 50 bills that would circumvent the authority of state boards of education on matters such as academic standards thereby adding more bureaucracy to the policymaking process. The American educational system has been mediocre for too long. Fighting over who should have the power to fix it only distracts from that reality. Lawmakers and independent state boards of education must work together to set high standards for our children and empower them to succeed. Former state legislator Kristen Amundson is now the executive director of the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE).

Knitting and Crochet Club supports women and childrenOnce again the generous ladies who make up our Crochet and Knitting Club have been asked to use their talents to make Christmas a bit brighter for women and children in need. As always, all of the gals who belong to this club have agreed to be there for those who are facing difficult times in their lives. In last weeks Citizen an article was published expressing the need for materials for this project. Edna Fazio wrote the article very eloquently but also; very modestly. I have seen the work these ladies do and it is magnificent. Hundreds of hours are spent as they lovingly hand craft stuffed animals; baby sweaters; hats; scarves; baby blankets and the like which they then give to women and children in abuse or homeless shelters. There is going to be a raffle at our Craft Show to help with the purchase of materials like yarn; stuffing; materials and the like for these wonderful ladies. I hope you will buy tickets at the show and before the show from any of the members of this group. You can even go to the office and buy tickets. A special handmade baby blanket and stuffed monkey as well as other items have been donated for the raffle. You can help out abused women and homeless children with a purchase of these tickets. You can also help our Crochet and Knitting Club by donating any materials that you think they would be able to use such as wool; yarn; needles; material; or similar products. For many years the gifted and dedicated members of this organization have given so much of their time and talents to charities. The very least we can do is support them in their efforts and thank them for their love of others.Craft ShowOn Oct 11 our clubhouse doors will open at 9 a.m. to all of Marion County for our Semi-annual Craft Show. This is a marvelous opportunity for you to find goodies and treasures; personalized and unique gifts; wonderful household items and art work that will enhance your home. Dozens of tables will be displaying the work of talented and gifted artisans showing handcrafted quilts and afghans; wind chimes and wood crafts; purses and tote bags; jewelry and personalized greeting cards; designer canes and walking sticks; micro wave bowls and much more. In the early hours of the show our Activities Committee will be vending coffee and donuts for a nominal fee so you can have a light breakfast before you begin your shopping spree. Later, hot dogs and sandwiches with drinks will be available also for a very affordable price. You can find wonderful personal gifts for loved ones that live out of state and still have time to mail them in time for the holidays; or you can find treasures for your own home. Bring your friends and family with you and browse the many tables; chat with the vendors; place special orders or get help selecting that item that makes your day. Our Craft show is not like shopping at the mall; the vendors take special interest in each of their customers providing excellent service and quality goods.Cribbage ClubIn spite of two of our stalwart members being absent, the Cribbage Club managed to get together and have a fun time on Monday. Avis scored another 24 hand on her way to victory over Jim and Geri while Suzanne and Eulie managed to split 6 games with Victor and myself. Carl and Sarah were not in attendance but we still managed to share a fun time and create some mayhem. Geri is one of our snowbirds who came down to get ready to return for the winter season. It was good to see her again and enjoy her sense of humor. Join our crazy and some what wacky group on Mondays at 12:30. We will be happy to teach you the game if you dont know how to play. If you do know how to play; bring your knowledge and sense of humor and come enjoy yourself. Fun in the Sun GamesIt is time to gather your team for our annual Fun in the Sun Games. Saturday, Oct 18 the athletes and their athletic supporters will gather at 10 a.m. behind the clubhouse for this fun competition. Teams are composed of four persons each. Any combination of men and women are welcome to sign up and register their team for just $10. That works out to $2.50 per player. Once the teams are formed Holly and Janice will begin the games. Our events this year will be Shuffleboard; Bocce Ball; Wellie Wanging and the Bean Bag toss. Each player must compete in two of the four events so divide up the duties amongst your best contestants. There will be prizes; medals and money for the top three winning teams. First place wins $40 and bragging rights for the entire year. $30 and $20 are the prizes for second and third place respectively. In addition to the games there will be hot dogs and soft drinks and other refreshments served for all who attend at a very nominal fee. This event is as much fun for the spectators as it is for those who are participating. We need some volunteers to act as referees and umpires for these games so if youd like to help out and you arent taking part in a sport let Holly Bragdon or Janice McLeod know that youre available. Plan to make this outing with your family and friends. Youll witness some super competition and youll have a great time too.Halloween DanceMark your calendars for Oct. 25 when our local goblins will be out in force for the Halloween Dance. This annual party here at our clubhouse always draws a great crowd for the costume contest. We have some pretty imaginative and artistic folks in this community who go all out. Light snacks will be available along with lemonade and iced tea but you can always bring your own libations to enjoy at the party. We will have music and dancing to round out this evening of fun. Dont miss one of the highlights of our fall social season. Sold outOur 20-year anniversary party is totally sold out. If you have tickets and you are not going to be able to attend, you are urged to turn your tickets into the office. We have a waiting list of persons who would love to attend but who were late getting their tickets. This is going to be an exciting evening and we would hate to see any empty seats. Irish Hooley cancelled The Spirit of Ocala Irish Step Dancers cancelled their performance set for Oct. 3; our Irish Hooley dance. That is unfortunate because it was a sell out crowd but they will be scheduled at a later date and time. Keep your eyes on the bulletin board for more details about this group and when they will return to our clubhouse.

Your Cherrywood Veterans Club is planning a food drive to benefit the Ritz House. Around the Holidays many resources are available to the veterans who are transitioning from homelessness to main stream society, but at this time they are in need of our support. Residents are asked to place food donations in plastic bags by their mail boxes on Oct. 22 between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon. Volunteers from the Veterans Club will come around and collect these gifts and transport them to the men and women at Ritz House. We are hoping to get the support of the entire community just as we have had in the past. Canned goods; non-perishable food items; cleaning supplies; paper towels; toilet paper; soap and personal hygiene items are all needed. You may also take your donations to the clubhouse on the morning of Oct. 22 where our volunteers will be gathering. Thank you for your help in this project.Informal Dance a HitOn Friday, Sept.19, our resident DJ Rich Becotte brought his vast array of CDs; his electronic expertise and his smile to play for the residents who were looking for an old fashioned dance. More than 30 people showed up for this totally informal; no frills evening. Everyone brought their own snacks and beverages; no tickets were required and no contests were held. The evening was just a time to share dancing to all kinds of music and friendly conversation. Waltzes; Polkas; Line Dances; and every other request that the guests had were played by Rich. Not much advertising other than word of mouth preceded this event and it also rained but in spite of that; there were enough people out there having a fabulous time on the dance floor and casually chatting with one another to make it a big success. We will probably be repeating this kind of evening of entertainment and dance on a monthly basis. There is a bulletin board in the office so be sure to start checking it regularly to find out about this all the other wonderful activities we have here at Cherrywood.TriviaIn spite of a small turnout, the competition was fierce as the top two teams at Trivia battled it out. Only two points separated the winners from second place when all was said and done. New to Trivia night was the Gatley family; Ora, Elaine and Marty. They were joined by Trude Smith and the four of them put in a sterling performance. Donna James came up with her usual mind boggling posers that were punctuated with laughter. When ever Donna is the quizmaster we all learn a lot as she shares a wealth of information when she gives us the answers. A moment of silence was observed for Gene Wachsmuth. Last month he was on the winning team at Trivia and on this day; we attended his memorial service. Gene was an avid Trivia Player who shared the table with Jay OHern; Victor OGreen and yours truly. He will be missed. Next month Trivia will be held on Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. The questions will be on the subjects of famous quotes; States; music; 100 year anniversary of WW I; and oh yes, Erotica. It will be my privilege to be your host for that interesting evening of Trivia and Im hoping we have a big turn out. All proceeds from Trivia go to the Patriot Dog Project. We have donated Food drive scheduled to benefit Ritz House Cherrywood John Everlove Simon and Muriel Farquharson enjoying the dance party.

The Marion Landing Lifestyle Center is located at 8601 SW 65th Avenue Road, just off SR 200 across from Queen of Peace Catholic Church. Admission to this event is free, and it is open to the public. Water exercisePats morning water exercise class loves to start each day with a workout in the pool. The water is beautiful at 9 oclock in the morning and, despite some sporadic pool maintenance closures, the participants have been dedicated to attending the class throughout the summer.

Stretch and Tone has been brought to the community by resident Audrey Barvinchak, who notes, This program has been held in another community for more than 20 years. I led the class for 2 years and had more than 25 men and women from ages 60 to 90 enjoying the program. I hope to see you on Monday, Oct. 6.

Your Cherrywood Veterans Club is planning a food drive to benefit the Ritz House. Around the Holidays many resources are available to the veterans who are transitioning from homelessness to main stream society, but at this time they are in need of our support. Residents are asked to place food donations in plastic bags by their mail boxes on Oct. 22 between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon. Volunteers from the Veterans Club will come around and collect these gifts and transport them to the men and women at Ritz House. We are hoping to get the support of the entire community just as we have had in the past. Canned goods; non-perishable food items; cleaning supplies; paper towels; toilet paper; soap and personal hygiene items are all needed. You may also take your donations to the clubhouse on the morning of Oct. 22 where our volunteers will be gathering. Thank you for your help in this project.Informal Dance a HitOn Friday, Sept.19, our resident DJ Rich Becotte brought his vast array of CDs; his electronic expertise and his smile to play for the residents who were looking for an old fashioned dance. More than 30 people showed up for this totally informal; no frills evening. Everyone brought their own snacks and beverages; no tickets were required and no contests were held. The evening was just a time to share dancing to all kinds of music and friendly conversation. Waltzes; Polkas; Line Dances; and every other request that the guests had were played by Rich. Not much advertising other than word of mouth preceded this event and it also rained but in spite of that; there were enough people out there having a fabulous time on the dance floor and casually chatting with one another to make it a big success. We will probably be repeating this kind of evening of entertainment and dance on a monthly basis. There is a bulletin board in the office so be sure to start checking it regularly to find out about this all the other wonderful activities we have here at Cherrywood.TriviaIn spite of a small turnout, the competition was fierce as the top two teams at Trivia battled it out. Only two points separated the winners from second place when all was said and done. New to Trivia night was the Gatley family; Ora, Elaine and Marty. They were joined by Trude Smith and the four of them put in a sterling performance. Donna James came up with her usual mind boggling posers that were punctuated with laughter. When ever Donna is the quizmaster we all learn a lot as she shares a wealth of information when she gives us the answers. A moment of silence was observed for Gene Wachsmuth. Last month he was on the winning team at Trivia and on this day; we attended his memorial service. Gene was an avid Trivia Player who shared the table with Jay OHern; Victor OGreen and yours truly. He will be missed. Next month Trivia will be held on Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. The questions will be on the subjects of famous quotes; States; music; 100 year anniversary of WW I; and oh yes, Erotica. It will be my privilege to be your host for that interesting evening of Trivia and Im hoping we have a big turn out. All proceeds from Trivia go to the Patriot Dog Project. We have donated Food drive scheduled to benefit Ritz House Cherrywood John Everlove Simon and Muriel Farquharson enjoying the dance party.

That notwithstanding, the rivalry was intense; in a jovial and joyful sort of way. We look forward to our usual good crowds next month.Community Yard SaleOn Oct. 4 everyone in Marion County is welcome to come and take part in our Semi-Annual Cherrywood Community Yard Sale. This is a great opportunity to pick up a wide assortment of items at great prices and to view our wonderful neighborhood. Beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing until 1 p.m. you can cruise our streets and stop by the homes that are displaying their used or almost used items for sale. Save on lawn equipment; knick knacks; tools; aids for handicapped persons; clothing; and many other things that will save you time and money.

Knitting and Crochet Club supports women and childrenOnce again the generous ladies who make up our Crochet and Knitting Club have been asked to use their talents to make Christmas a bit brighter for women and children in need. As always, all of the gals who belong to this club have agreed to be there for those who are facing difficult times in their lives. In last weeks Citizen an article was published expressing the need for materials for this project. Edna Fazio wrote the article very eloquently but also; very modestly. I have seen the work these ladies do and it is magnificent. Hundreds of hours are spent as they lovingly hand craft stuffed animals; baby sweaters; hats; scarves; baby blankets and the like which they then give to women and children in abuse or homeless shelters. There is going to be a raffle at our Craft Show to help with the purchase of materials like yarn; stuffing; materials and the like for these wonderful ladies. I hope you will buy tickets at the show and before the show from any of the members of this group. You can even go to the office and buy tickets. A special handmade baby blanket and stuffed monkey as well as other items have been donated for the raffle. You can help out abused women and homeless children with a purchase of these tickets. You can also help our Crochet and Knitting Club by donating any materials that you think they would be able to use such as wool; yarn; needles; material; or similar products. For many years the gifted and dedicated members of this organization have given so much of their time and talents to charities. The very least we can do is support them in their efforts and thank them for their love of others.Craft ShowOn Oct 11 our clubhouse doors will open at 9 a.m. to all of Marion County for our Semi-annual Craft Show. This is a marvelous opportunity for you to find goodies and treasures; personalized and unique gifts; wonderful household items and art work that will enhance your home. Dozens of tables will be displaying the work of talented and gifted artisans showing handcrafted quilts and afghans; wind chimes and wood crafts; purses and tote bags; jewelry and personalized greeting cards; designer canes and walking sticks; micro wave bowls and much more. In the early hours of the show our Activities Committee will be vending coffee and donuts for a nominal fee so you can have a light breakfast before you begin your shopping spree. Later, hot dogs and sandwiches with drinks will be available also for a very affordable price. You can find wonderful personal gifts for loved ones that live out of state and still have time to mail them in time for the holidays; or you can find treasures for your own home. Bring your friends and family with you and browse the many tables; chat with the vendors; place special orders or get help selecting that item that makes your day. Our Craft show is not like shopping at the mall; the vendors take special interest in each of their customers providing excellent service and quality goods.Cribbage ClubIn spite of two of our stalwart members being absent, the Cribbage Club managed to get together and have a fun time on Monday. Avis scored another 24 hand on her way to victory over Jim and Geri while Suzanne and Eulie managed to split 6 games with Victor and myself. Carl and Sarah were not in attendance but we still managed to share a fun time and create some mayhem. Geri is one of our snowbirds who came down to get ready to return for the winter season. It was good to see her again and enjoy her sense of humor. Join our crazy and some what wacky group on Mondays at 12:30. We will be happy to teach you the game if you dont know how to play. If you do know how to play; bring your knowledge and sense of humor and come enjoy yourself. Fun in the Sun GamesIt is time to gather your team for our annual Fun in the Sun Games. Saturday, Oct 18 the athletes and their athletic supporters will gather at 10 a.m. behind the clubhouse for this fun competition. Teams are composed of four persons each. Any combination of men and women are welcome to sign up and register their team for just $10. That works out to $2.50 per player. Once the teams are formed Holly and Janice will begin the games. Our events this year will be Shuffleboard; Bocce Ball; Wellie Wanging and the Bean Bag toss. Each player must compete in two of the four events so divide up the duties amongst your best contestants. There will be prizes; medals and money for the top three winning teams. First place wins $40 and bragging rights for the entire year. $30 and $20 are the prizes for second and third place respectively. In addition to the games there will be hot dogs and soft drinks and other refreshments served for all who attend at a very nominal fee. This event is as much fun for the spectators as it is for those who are participating. We need some volunteers to act as referees and umpires for these games so if youd like to help out and you arent taking part in a sport let Holly Bragdon or Janice McLeod know that youre available. Plan to make this outing with your family and friends. Youll witness some super competition and youll have a great time too.Halloween DanceMark your calendars for Oct. 25 when our local goblins will be out in force for the Halloween Dance. This annual party here at our clubhouse always draws a great crowd for the costume contest. We have some pretty imaginative and artistic folks in this community who go all out. Light snacks will be available along with lemonade and iced tea but you can always bring your own libations to enjoy at the party. We will have music and dancing to round out this evening of fun. Dont miss one of the highlights of our fall social season. Sold outOur 20-year anniversary party is totally sold out. If you have tickets and you are not going to be able to attend, you are urged to turn your tickets into the office. We have a waiting list of persons who would love to attend but who were late getting their tickets. This is going to be an exciting evening and we would hate to see any empty seats. Irish Hooley cancelled The Spirit of Ocala Irish Step Dancers cancelled their performance set for Oct. 3; our Irish Hooley dance. That is unfortunate because it was a sell out crowd but they will be scheduled at a later date and time. Keep your eyes on the bulletin board for more details about this group and when they will return to our clubhouse.

PLEASESEERELIGION, PAGE11 THE DROP By Dennis LeHane At the same time that Dennis Lehanes The Drop was opening in theaters, the novel, a spin-off from the film script, was appearing in bookstores. Its a small book, just a tad over 200 pages, that takes us back to Mystic River and the bar scene in Boston. According to the flyleaf blurb its a love story wrapped in a crime story wrapped in a journey of faith. The stoic, quietly suffering protagonist, Bob Saginowski, lives in the same house where he was raised and pours brews in his cousins neighborhood bar, filling glasses of deadbeat barflies including a nightly escapee from a nearby nursing home. Actually, cousin Marv no longer owns the bar named after him. It now belongs to Chechen gangsters who use it to launder drug money. Bob sometimes unburdens his loneliness to Father Regan who assures him that some woman with faith in God will see the inner good in Bob. Bob knew the priest meant well but experience had shown him that women saw the love in his heart but preferred a more attractive casing around it. All that changes one night on his way home when Bob rescues an injured bull-terrier puppy among Christmas debris Love story, crime story, journey of faith in a garbage can. He names the dog Rocco and cant stop talking about his new pet to the bored Marv. Finding Rocco also leads him to a pockmarked young woman named Nadia Dunn who helps him care for the dog but who also leads him to her crazy ex-boyfriend Eric who abused the dog but now wants him back. (Eric has to be the most fascinating creep since Stephen Kings Mr. Mercedes.) From here the book builds to its climax on Super Bowl Sunday, the scheduled date for the bars biggest drop, the night all the characters move toward a dangerous conclusion. Gritty, darkly humorous with the usual mix of quirky figures, The Drop isnt vintage LeHane but satisfying all the same. Bookmark Pat Wellington BY KRISTEN AMUNDSON Special to the CitizenThe U.S. education system recently received a report card from the OECD, a think tank for developed countries. Americas grades werent pretty. Twenty-nine countries out-performed the United States in math. Nineteen did better in reading. America fared even worse than the last time the survey was conducted in 2009. Clearly, America needs higher educational standards. But instead of working with state education leaders to implement such standards, some state legislators are waging a turf war over who decides what kids should learn. This pointless infighting must end. Rather than politicize academic standards, lawmakers should collaborate with state education leaders to raise them with the ultimate goal of improving student achievement. Our countrys stagnating performance has serious economic consequences. In 2009, consulting firm McKinsey & Co. found that closing the international educational achievement gap would increase U.S. GDP by $2.3 trillion. McKinsey concluded that Americas underperformance represents the equivalent of a permanent, deep recession. Fortunately, several states are working to close the achievement gap. Massachusetts has implemented high academic standards over the past decade. As a result, the Bay States performance on the NAEP, a federal measure of student achievement, jumped 35 points. Among low-income kids, the gains were even bigger more than 47 points. In other words, while all students are improving, the kids who face the steepest challenges are improving faster. How did Massachusetts do it? First, they set high collegeand career-ready standards benchmarks for what students should know in reading and math for all students. Then they invested in teacher preparation and professional training. Finally, they stayed the course through changes in political administrations. Their bipartisan effort is now paying off. Thats what really works. In most states, boards of education composed of volunteers from the business, medical, educational, and even farming communities articulate academic standards as well as a long-term vision for public education. Because theyre insulated from political pressure, state boards are able to focus solely on improving education for all students. Massachusetts isnt the only state where lawmakers and education boards are cooperating to improve childrens educational opportunities. Kentucky has led the movement to raise academic standards. Many state officials worried that tougher standards would lead to lower student test scores and spark a backlash. But the state board of education and legislators preemptively cautioned communities across the state not to panic if test scores declined as they did initially. Holding students to higher standards generated positive returns. College and career readiness among Kentuckys high school graduates increased almost 25 percent after the math and reading standards were implemented. In Maryland, officials paired rigorous evaluation of teachers with individually tailored professional development to help them improve. More effective teachers have yielded better-performing students. On the NAEP, Maryland posted the second-biggest gains for all students between 2003 and 2011. The states low-income students made the most improvement in the nation. Yet too many lawmakers are ignoring results like these. In the last 18 months, legislators in more than 20 states introduced 50 bills that would circumvent the authority of state boards of education on matters such as academic standards thereby adding more bureaucracy to the policymaking process. The American educational system has been mediocre for too long. Fighting over who should have the power to fix it only distracts from that reality. Lawmakers and independent state boards of education must work together to set high standards for our children and empower them to succeed. Former state legislator Kristen Amundson is now the executive director of the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE).

Friday, September 26, 2014 ~ 9 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, September 26, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Travel plans could be interrupted by the re-emergence of a workplace problem that was never quite fully resolved. Deal with it at once, and then take off on that well-deserved trip. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Aspects favor cultural activities for sensuous Bovines. Attend a concert or an art show. Better yet, create something yourself (a poem, perhaps?), and dedicate it to someone special. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Respect any doubts you might now be feeling about a new situation. They could be reflecting your inner awareness that some essential information might be missing. Check it out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its important to start the new month with as clean a slate as possible. Either complete all those unfinished tasks or pass them on to others who would be more than happy to take them on. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good time to cut down on expenses and tame that urge to splurge. Applying some financial discipline now could help ride out a possible monetary crunch later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Money matters are dominant this week. Recheck your accounts and make sure theyre upto-date. Pay attention to personal issues before they become problems. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might be tempted to employ the same tactics as your adversary, but that could backfire. Better to use the same balanced approach that has worked for you before. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A changing workplace environment could stir up confusion as well as apprehension. Best to ignore the rumors and get the facts. You could find that the changes bring positive elements. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Communication is easier this week with people ready and eager to hear what you have to say. Also, check for possible technical problems before you start your new project. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Aspects favor change for the usually traditional Goat. Opening your mind to possibilities you had ignored could lead you to make decisions you once considered improbable. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Making personal as well as professional adjustments to changing conditions might be easier with more information explaining the hows and whys of the situations in question. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) With growing positive reactions to buoy your confidence, this could be the right time to finish your new project and get it well and truly launched. Summer is over and winter is beginning to give us her cold shoulder. The only way I can really handle winter is the hope of summer coming again in all her warm embraces. I can only take the shivers for so long. In our home, there is a divide over the subject. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage lives for winter and I live for summer. How two people who can be so opposite and still live together harmoniously is one of the mysteries of matrimonial bliss. I endure her complaining about how hot it is during the summer and she somehow endures my shivering throughout the winter. And boy, do I shiver. I am not so sure what it is about winter that is so fascinating for her. Maybe it is because she gets to wear more clothing than she can during the summer. Or, maybe she just likes the cold. That is not exactly true because once I gave her a cold shoulder and I have been paying for that ever since. She does have that cold stare when I am in trouble, but that comes during the summer as well as the rest of the year. Maybe she likes winter because in the middle of winter is Christmas. If anybody loves Christmas, it is my wife. She begins her Christmas planning in January and knows exactly what she is going to buy throughout the year. I think it has something to do with when things go on sale or something like that. Personally, and do not let this get back to her, I think it is just an excuse to go shopping. I will not say she is a Shopaholic, but give her a coupon and she is off to the mall. You did not hear it from me. Also during the winter season is Thanksgiving where my wife outdoes herself in making Thanksgiving dinner for all the family. She makes enough for an army and out of deep respect for her, I eat like an army. Actually, I eat until I hear that little whisper from the other end of the table, Dont you think you have had enough? What she does not understand is, when I am eating I am not thinking. As for me, I enjoy summer and all the laziness associated with summertime. All those lazy, crazy days of summer were designed for people just like me. When it comes to lazy and crazy, I am the expert. I can remember years ago when I was doing something and my wife thought it was a little out of line, she would say, Are you acting crazy? She does not say that anymore because she has concluded, and rightly so, that I am not an actor. If I were acting, she is sure I would get an Oscar. However, something about summer makes a person slow down a little bit and not be in such a hurry. One of my excuses is that it is too hot to do anything today. I love that excuse because my wife always agrees. I cannot use that excuse in winter for obvious reasons. According to her, an activity will warm me up. I have never warmed up to that idea. I like summer because there are so many fun opportunities to get together with family. Every summer we go and spend a week with my son and his family, which is one of the highlights of the summer. I only have one week out of the year to spoil his children so I try to make the best of it. If I had the ability to manipulate seasons, I would make sure that 11 months out of the year it would be summer. I would have to give one month to my wife for winter, but I would only give her one month. That is about all I can handle. Summer is a time to enjoy the nature God has created. It is wonderful to see green grass and green leaves on the trees and watching blossoms turn into full-fledged flowers. What could be better than sitting on the back porch with a tall glass of iced lemonade watching the sunset? I love hearing the crickets in full concert and that only happens during the summer. Here in Florida we have little frogs that think they are crickets and chime in adding their voice to the evening music. Did I mention picnics? What would summer be without a picnic? In my mind, a picnic is an excuse to overindulge in the fine art of stuffing yourself. The picnic is a little different so that somebody cannot query me with, Dont you think youve had enough? The Food Whisperer is not allowed at picnics. After all, at a church picnic it is imperative that I sample every dish brought to the picnic. I do not want to leave anybody out on this. The picnic is the time to let down your hair, if you have any, and just enjoy food and fellowship. It amazes me how fast time flies when you are not paying attention.

Friday, September 26, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com DAPAD_2IN ADVERTISINGTO ADVERTISECall489-2731 www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, September 26, 2014 The general election this November will have three amendments for voters to consider. Voting should be easy and voters should be informed. This information from the League of Women Voters in Citrus County was published in the Citrus County Chronicle. Following is a brief description of the amendments and how your vote will affect them. Amendments to the Florida Constitution are changes to rules and rights provided by the constitution. An amendment must receive 60 percent of the votes to become law. Amendment 1, the Water and Land Conservation Initiative, dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands. It requires 33 percent of the net revenue collected from the documentary stamp tax (mostly from real estate transactions) over the next 20 years to go toward the Land Acquisition Trust Fund. It ensures that funding will not be diverted to other areas of the budget. A yes vote would provide for long-term funding for environmental conservation without a new tax; remove the reliance on annual reviews of legislative funding for water and land conservation projects; and promote the enhancement of publicly-held recreational lands and possibly contributing to economic growth through increased ecotourism. A no vote would continue to keep the funding for environmental conservation dependent on the Legislatures ability to make budgetary decisions affecting water and land on a year-to-year basis; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to environmental conservation, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League of Women Voters of Florida has studied the impact of this legislation and endorses a yes vote on Amendment 1. Amendment 2, the Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative, allows individuals with debilitating diseases, as determined by a licensed Florida physician, to purchase and use medical marijuana. It enables physicians to authorize medical marijuana to their patients; allows caregivers to assist patients medical use of the drug; requires the Department of Health to register and regulate centers that produce and distribute medical marijuana; requires issuance of identification cards to patients and caregivers; and only applies to Florida residents. A yes vote would provide for the legal use of medical marijuana; continue to prohibit recreational use; and require the Department of Health to monitor the industry, as well as issue ID cards to patients and caregivers. A no vote would not affect the current prohibition on marijuana use in the state of Florida; continue to maintain the enforcement of marijuana laws currently on the books; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to medical marijuana, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League has not taken a position on Amendment 2. Amendment 3, Prospective Appointment of Certain Judicial Vacancies, has the unique distinction of being placed on the ballot by the Florida Legislature. While Amendment 1 and 2 were placed on the ballot in response to citizen initiative, collecting signatures from 8 percent of the number of voters who cast ballots in the most recent presidential election (683,149 signatures were required), Amendment 3 was proposed by joint resolution and passed by three-fifths of each chamber of the Legislature. Amendment 3 would require a governor to prospectively fill vacancies on the Florida Supreme Court or a district court of appeal when a judge retires, fails to qualify for retention election or fails to secure a majority of votes during his or her retention election. A yes vote would invalidate the Florida Supreme Courts interpretation of Floridas Constitution as to who has authority to fill judicial vacancies; enable an outgoing governor to make appointments to the Florida Supreme Court or a district court of appeal; and possibly shorten the time that a judicial appointment is vacant. A no vote would maintain the current system that requires the newly sworn incoming governor to fill judicial vacancies; continue to allow judicial vacancies to exist for up to 120 days, possibly creating workload issues within the court; and not place language in the Florida Constitution relating to judicial appointments, where it would be difficult to modify or remove. The League of Women Voters of Florida opposes this amendment and endorses a no vote. Youve all heard the expression When it rains, it pours. Last week I felt as if it was a small hurricane that was drenching me as I got messages from your correspondents. First, in the West Marion Messenger, Carolyn Slocumb is ending her run as a correspondent from Quail Meadow. She has a family situation that requires her to be at home more, and her feeling is that if she doesnt go to some of these events in her community, she cant really write about them. Thats a terrific attitude, and shows that she has a real understanding of what is involved in churning out the column week after week. Ive seen all sorts of stories recently about how people who retire, especially now as the active Baby Boomers reach retirement age, should plan to remain active somehow, some way. Its vital to a retirees health to keep developing interests that keep them busy. Thats why gathering material for the community columns should involve going to various events in person. Its also a great way to get known in your community. Then I got word from Judi Siegal, whose Judis Journal column has appeared in the South Marion Citizen as well as the Citrus County Chronicle, has decided to stop writing. I learned a lot about Judaism from reading her material over the past few years, and Im sorry shes ending her run as a correspondent. Then came John Everlove, who has been writing the Cherrywood column. He may know more about what goes on in his community than anyone, and he shared it with us each week, including pictures almost every week. He is also stepping down. Some people (not other writers) complained to me occasionally that Cherrywood news seemed to dominate the paper. My reply was to ask if they had ever submitted items to the writer in their community. Most of the time the answer was no. End of conversation. If you want more about your community, invite the writer to your clubs activities, or submit stories and pictures. Dont blame another community for having too much news. Just make sure your news gets submitted. Carolyn has gotten another correspondent, Richard Gunther, to volunteer to write the Quail Meadow column. Since he was already the main photographer, things should continue without a hitch. In Cherrywood, as I write this, were still looking for someone to take Johns place. Dont be bashful. If youre one of those who likes to get out and mingle with your fellow residents at various activities, put it in writing and join our staff of great volunteer correspondents. The ability to take pictures always helps, of course. I hope we can get some help where its needed. I need for that pouring to stop.

To be placed into the Constitution, they must get at least 60 percent of the vote. That was placed into the document under election laws after the pregnant pig fiasco years ago. The amendments have been drowned out by the barrage of ads in the governors race with Charlie Crist and Rick Scott running nasty ads, the ad being run by incumbent Pam Bondi in the attorney generals race (does her opponent know that theres an election coming up we rarely see him) and local School Board election news. However, the amendments will have an effect in the lives of many people. Elsewhere on this page, we are running a story from the League of Women Voters in Citrus County that was published in our parent daily newspaper, the Citrus County Chronicle. Its very factual and the only opinion in it is telling you how this particular chapter of the League stands. Its not as hard as two years ago, when we had 11 amendments, to learn as much as you can and make your choice before you go to vote. These three amendments are pretty straightforward. So take the time to read about the items that are going to be on the ballot in November. You owe it to yourself and your fellow citizens to be informed.Dont get careless, learn to yieldMarion County residents have been the victims lately in a number of accidents where they pulled out in front of a vehicle on the highway. One occurred last weekend at State Road 200 and 27th Avenue, when a car making a left turn pulled in front of another vehicle. A worse wreck happened Tuesday evening near Citra, as a woman pulled out of a dollar store parking lot into the path of a semi. She didnt survive. Weve been hearing a lot about accidents such as these recently. So please, pay special attention when youre entering a busy highway. When cross traffic is moving at 50 mph or better, it gets on top of you pretty fast. Dont be a statistic because you were impatient. Be safe and protect yourself, and we all will be better off.

This is a problem but it doesnt start with the NFL, it starts in High School, Aw now, come on parents, you know how it goes. You get a promising football player and then he gets coddled by the school and this continues into college where the coddling is worse. His ego is so bloated he gets that in your face attitude that whatever he does is acceptable because you need him. Now he goes to the NFL. By this time he is out of control. The cheerleaders go after him like bimbos and add to his big ego. Somewhere along the way he was never taught to be a good role model and be thankful he has this God given talent. He really isnt Gods gift to women and should respect them. They should put it in the contracts from college to the NFL and it should be made PLEASESEELETTER, PAGE10 Dear Readers, I dont know about you but I find it is so busy and time flies. I do hope that in all your busyness you might find some time to volunteer. It has been brought to my attention that various organizations are in need of volunteers. The club might be in need of officers and before you say I cant do that find out what the duties are in the various openings. It is not like you are being asked to be on a board of a large corporation and it can be fun. Great way to meet people! Reach Out, neighbors helping neighbors would love to have residents come forward to volunteer. They have teams for medical transportation, home repair, help on your computer, call another each day. Problems with Alcohol group is also available. Oak Run is fortunate to have Reach Out run by volunteers. I sometimes think we would all be better off if we gave a bit of our time helping others and volunteering to give others a break who have worked hard over the years to supply all the activities we have in our community. Perhaps volunteering would put our energy to a better use than being unkind to one another. I appreciate all the invites I receive to attend the various functions but I would never be home but I hope to try to make one here and there. Have a great week and you cant complain about the heat because it is getting a tiny bit cooler. (Call me if you want to know where you can sign up to volunteer) Laura SmithFriends of Oak Run LibraryFriday, Oct. 3, at 1 p.m. in the Orchid Club auditorium, there will be the meeting of Friends of the Oak Run Library with featured speaker, Dave Schlenker, Entertainment Editor of the Star Banner.

From your reporterIn todays world, most Americans trust neither their politicians nor the mainstream media. Dishonesty and lies from those seeking office is expected while cover ups and misinformation from the press are accepted as normal. While it may be a surprising and unpopular point of view, I say that this is good news. In a democracy, people should not trust those who make the rules or those who benefit from them. Dissent and differences of opinion are vital to a free society and the press has the obligation of reporting facts free from a political agenda. Unfortunately when the press gains from keeping silent; prospers from bending the truth or seeks to put forth a point of view rather than informing the public; they can do a great disservice to society. In the mainstream press for example; football odds are often given. You can pick a team and learn the point spread right from the sports section of most newspapers. Likewise, in that same section you will find the results of various horse races from tracks across the country. Isnt gambling illegal? What benefit is there to knowing the point spread of a game unless youre placing a bet? Second; offtrack betting is illegal unless you are at a site that is televising the race. If you witness the race; you already know the results so whats the point. Are the papers aiding and abetting in a criminal activity or just printing what is newsworthy? What would happen to their circulation numbers if these statistics and results were not printed? Who is the beneficiary of this information? Serious local issues arise such as the property developments in Marion County but few news stations or other outlets cover them. Proposals and candidates for local elections are rarely covered in depth. Crime reports are stifled and when they are not; often they are misrepresent the true facts of a case. This is understandable because crime reports lower property values; make local law enforcement look ineffective; and make the citizens feel less secure. News outlets would not want that because it would have an impact on their advertising revenues. Failure to report such things however; lulls the public into a false sense of security. It prevents the average citizen from knowing the dangers and hazards of their own neighborhood. Fortunately for us; we have a newspaper that reports the facts; informs us of local issues of importance; keeps us up to date on County and City Council activities and then presents us with a healthy dose of good news about our community. Im speaking of course of the Citizen Newspaper. As its editor Jim Clark pointed out a few weeks ago; the local issues have much more of an impact on our immediate lives than the National or International news. That is why local newspapers such as the Citizen play such a vital role in our well being. For the past two and half years, it has been my honor to work for the Citizen newspaper and Mr. Clark. In that paper you will find honest information about events that are coming up; events that have taken place; news on current issues facing our community and straightforward editorial comments. Some people say that the newspaper is a thing of the past. Everyone will get their news from a computer or hand held device in the future according to the experts. I for one will rue that day. I like the feel of the paper in my hands; I like getting news that I can use from people I can trust. Mr. Clark has kept free of the problems that affect other newspapers. He brings his knowledge; expertise; integrity and fairness into his work; and for that he is an admired and respected member of this community. Men and women with the ethics of Jim Clark are the reason the free press is vital to our freedom.

Friday, September 26, 2014 ~ 23 www.smcitizen.com 6~ Friday, September 26, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Today is the last day of National Dog Week, a special week that has been observed for 86 years. It was established to create more responsible dog owners. Being responsible, we let the dogs loose on Pun Alley for some doggone stories, but no barking.UnlicensedDuring a countywide drive to round up all unlicensed dogs a patrolman signaled a car to pull over to the curb. When the driver asked why he had been stopped, the officer pointed to the big dog sitting on the seat beside him. Does your dog have a license? he asked. Oh, no, the man said. He doesnt need one. I always do the driving.Willful gain attemptThe young man paid careful attention to his rich old aunt and was especially affectionate to the several dogs she liked so inordinately. When the old lady died, her will provided that the dogs should be left to the nephew.Maids best friendAfter many years of service, a rich lady decided to fire her maid and hire someone younger. When the maid heard the news, she took a steak out of the fridge and threw it to the family dog. Why did you do that? asked the lady of the house. I never forget a friend, replied the maid. That was for his help cleaning the dishes all these years.Dog rentalThe dog rescue agency has started a campaign to lease dogs in hope of getting the dogs adopted. Their slogan is: Leasing dogs is a way to test out a stray. You should check out our low cur rent price.Dog bitesThe man had 72 dogs in his house. The doctor told him to stop whistling in his sleep. I spilled spot remover on my dog. Now hes gone. Harry bought a puppy going cheap at the pet shop. It cost him a fortune because it did bird impressions. The dog is an Arctic explorer. He goes from pole to pole. Toms dog won the California canine surfing competition in the large dog category. Im guessing hes a boarder collie. One day a mother dog told her pups about the birds and the fleas. My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 2.99 cents a can. Thats almost $27 in dog money. They call their dog handyman because he does odd jobs around the house. A dog is mans best friend because he wags his tail instead of his tongue. Are dog biscuits made from collie flour? The dog can play the piano all night. He finds Chopin a breeze as he chews up the keys, but his Bach is far worse than his bite. Husband: My dear, I really dont believe you can ever teach that dog to obey you. Wife: Nonsense, darling. Remember how obstinate you were when we were first married? Like a dogI say, madam, why do you want to get a divorce? My husband treats me like a dog. Does he mistreat you? Does he hit you? No, he wants me to be faithful to him.Hot dogThe Zen master stepped up to the hot dog cart and said, Make me one with everything. The hot dog vendor fixed a hot dog and gave it to the Zen master, who paid with a $20 bill. The hot dog vendor put the bill in the cash drawer and closed the drawer. Wheres my change? asked the Zen master. The hot dog vendor replied, Change must come from within.Shaggy Dog StoryA man walked into a bar with a collie and both proceeded to get blitzed. The dog drank so much it passed out on the floor. When the man went to leave, the bartender yelled, Hey! You cant leave that lyin there! The drunk replied, Thats not a lion. Its a collie.DoggoneA dog followed his owner to school, a fourth grader at a public elementary school. When the bell rang, the dog tried to follow his owner inside, but a teacher noticed him and shooed him back outside, closing the door behind him. The dog sat down outside, whimpering and staring at the closed doors and not understanding why he was refused entry. Then God appeared beside the dog, patted him on the head to comfort him and said, Dont feel bad; they wont let Me in there either.

The one path forces your attention on the way in front of you. To get the full benefit, its wise to walk slowly and breathe evenly. It can be used for a walking meditation.

This is geared to children, for one reason or another, who have no books at home or parents who have the time to read to them. Over the year, these kindergarten children end up with 10 books of their very own. The volunteers read to them hour twice a week. They are making a big difference in the life of a child. Anyone interested in volunteering or learning more about the program can call (352) 732-9696 or visit www.uwmc.org/volunteer. Then the members heard from two men from the Ocala Wildlife Sanctuary. Endangered owls and birds of prey are taken care of here. Pictures were shown of the different owls that are usually cared for Screech, Burrowing, Barred, Barn, and Great Horned. Keith Belisle, a registered Native American Indian, brought Hobie, a 16 year old horned owl to show the audience. She was found after someone chopped off her wing. Donations are appreciated.

Information is also available at the Discovery Center, at 701 NE Sanchez Ave. Natasha Murphy, an intensive reading teacher at West Port High School in Ocala, is Floridas Reading Teacher of the Year. Murphy, a 12-year full-time employee of the district, recently received the news from the Florida Reading Association, a professional organization made up of reading teachers, literacy specialists, and others with professional reading interests. Murphy will formally accept her award in mid-October at the Florida Reading Conference in Orlando. As part of the honor, her registration and accommodation fees are complimentary. Why did she win? Murphy says its because she takes her students on multiple field trips each year to bring reading alive. Her reluctant readers, as she calls them, quickly learn how words on a page translate to real-life experiences. Murphy first worked for Marion County Public Schools as a substitute teacher and paraprofessional. She later moved to full-time teaching at West Port Middle and Liberty Middle before moving to her current position at West Port High. She was also Teacher of the Year at West Port Middle (2005-06) and West Port High (2012-13). A Lake Weir High alumna, Murphy graduated from the College of Central Florida and earned her bachelors degree in religion at St. Leo University.
