PLEASESEEPRINCIPAL, PAGE24 Jayne Ellspermann of West Port High School in Ocala has been named the 2015 National Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). The award was announced Tuesday at a surprise assembly at the school attended by Florida Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart, elected state and local officials, students, teachers, and Ellspermanns own family. The announcement came as part of NASSPs celebration of National Principals Month. During her 10 years as West Port principal, Ellspermann has developed a college-going culture personalized for students.

There were no injuries, but two pets, a cat and a guinea pig, were lost. The Marion County Public Safety Communications Center received an emergency call reporting the fire at 10:51 a.m. The home was fully engulfed in flames when MCFR firefighters arrived at 483 Marion Oaks Golf Road, at 11:09 a.m. Crews attacked the fire from outside until it was safe to enter and search for victims. The home was unoccupied when the fire broke-out. However, when crews arrived, two vehicles in the homes driveway led to concerns that at least one person may have been inside. Twenty firefighters and command staff prevented the fire from spreading to wooded areas adjacent to the property and a single neighboring home. They had the fire under control in less than 20 minutes. MCFR fire inspectors are investigating the cause, which is currently unknown. The homeowners three dogs were able to escape the fire.

With one in eight women diagnosed each year, an estimated 232,340 new cases of breast cancer and 39,620 deaths will be reported in 2013. Among all women affected, 85 percent have no family history. Your fire fighters and paramedics work hard to save lives both on and off the job. They are motivated to get involved for many reasons, and often its because they have been personally affected by the disease, says Ryan OReilly, a fire fighter and paramedic with the Marion County Fire Rescue and secretary of the Professional Firefighters of Marion County, IAFF Local 3169. We are supporting breast cancer awareness and prevention by encouraging others to give so that no breast cancer patient goes without life-saving treatments or having hope for a cure. According to Scott Chappell, president of the Marion County Firefighters Benevolence Fund, the charitable foundation of the local fire fighters association, around $10,000 has been raised in recent years to support families affected by cancer, cancer research, and provide free mammograms to women who may not otherwise be able to afford early detection screenings. Last year alone, $3,500 was raised in support of Michelle-O-Gram, a local charity established in the memory Michelle Standridge, the wife of a Marion County fire fighter who lost her battle to cancer. This charity not only raises money to pay for mammograms, but also helps negotiate prices with radiology centers, which allows women without insurance or the necessary funds to obtain mammography testing as well as breast ultrasounds. For more information how you can help, please visit www.michelleogram.com. This year, the benevolence fund is also a sponsor of the Dancing with the Angels Ball, an event to help local women affected by breast cancer. The formal dinner and dance is on Saturday, Oct. 11, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Ocala Holiday Inn. For ticket information please call (352) 236-2599. Everyone is at risk for breast cancer. The two most important risk factors are being female and getting older. Most women diagnosed with breast cancer have no other known factors. To help reduce your risk, be sure to maintain a healthy weight, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, exercise and limit alcohol consumption.

PINKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Nows the time to go out and get some apples; its National Apple Month. Founded in 1904, its mission is to increase apple sales, enhance consumer awareness and usage of apples and apple products. I went looking for some apple trees along the corridor. My search was fruitless, so I traveled far north for some good delicious apple stories. The beginningA Briton, a Frenchman and a Russian were looking at a painting of Adam and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden. Look at their reserve, their calm, mused the Briton They must be British. Nonsense, the Frenchman disagreed. Theyre naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French. No clothes, no shelter, the Russian pointed out, they have only an apple to eat, and theyre being told this is paradise. They are Russian.Apple investmentA young man asked an old rich man how he had made his money. The old guy said, Well, son, it was 1932, depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel; I invested that nickel in an apple and sold it for 10 cents. The next morning I invested those 10 cents in 2 apples sold them for 20 cents. By the end of that month, Id accumulated a fortune of $1.40. Then my wifes father died and left us 2 million dollars.Fruit headA man with an apple in one ear, a banana in the other ear and grapes up his nose went to see his Doctor. He said, Doctor, whats happening to me? The doctor replied, Youre not eating properly.Apple bitesAdam never had a date with Eve; it was an apple. The two worms didnt go into Noahs ark in an apple because everyone had to go in pairs. An apple a day keeps the doctor away; an onion a day keeps everybody away. Should New York City be called the Big Apple when its Washington, D.C., thats rotten to the core? At the party, I tried to be the first to fill my cup, but someone beat me to the punch. The Adam and Eve virus takes a couple of bytes out of your Apple phone. Mickey Mouse stole all of Minnies apples. Yep, he left Minnie apple less. I have kleptomania; but when it gets bad I take something for it. So excited for the Apple Watch. For years weve checked the time by looking at our phones. Having it on your wrist is genius. The surgeon who loved culture went to every opening. Cookie monsterThe children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted it on the apple tray, Take only one. God is watching. Getting to the core of things Pun Alley Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE34 Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, Take all you want. God is watching the apples.ApplesauceJake came rushing in to see his Dad. Dad! he puffed, is it true that an apple a day keeps the doctor away? Thats what they say, said his Dad. Well, give me an apple quick. Ive just broken the doctors windowNewtons applePhysics Teacher: Isaac Newton was sitting under a tree when an apple fell on his head and he discovered gravity. Isnt that wonderful? Student: Yes sir, if he had been sitting in class looking at books like us, he wouldnt have discovered anything.A to ZWife: How would you describe me? Husband: ABCDEFGHIJK. Wife: What does that mean? Husband: Adorable, beautiful, cute, delightful, elegant, fashionable, gorgeous, and hot. Wife: Thank you, but what about IJK? Husband: Im just kidding.Apple crisp? Sarah had wanted new kitchen cabinets for a long time, but her husband insisted they were an extravagance. She went to visit her mother for two weeks and when she returned, she was overjoyed to find that her husband had surprised her by installing beautiful new cabinets. A few days later, a neighbor came over to visit and after admiring the new cabinets, the neighbor added, All of us were so glad that the fire your husband had while you were away was confined to the kitchen.

KILLING PATTON: The Strange Death of WWIIs Most Audacious General By Bill OReilly and Martin Dugard In his Killing series Bill OReilly has capitalized on an historical subgenrethe deaths of famous people. His latest, Killing Patton, may well be his greatest achievement by far. It begins with riveting battle scenes during the 1944 Allied offensive to take back Europe, culminating in a massive, German counter-attack just when WWII seemed over. General George S. Patton, disgraced for slapping a G.I. in a hospital ward and sidelined during D-Day, responds with his crack Third Army to the siege of Bastogne, the Battle of the Bulge, with all the drama of a great crusade. His heroic image restored, Patton looked east to find a way to beat the Russians into Berlin. It was not to be. General Dwight D. Eisenhower, seeing no strategic value in Berlin, allowed the Russians to take it. Yet as Winston Churchill knows all too well, the order could not have been given without the approval of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He was apparently blindsided into trusting the Russians, a mistake Harry Truman, a good poker player, wouldnt make. Seeing the inevitable end of the war in Europe, Patton set his sights on a reassignment to the Pacific. Again, it was not to be. Then, although Patton desperately misses the war, he decides to resign in order to speak frankly about the Russian threat. Some want to make sure that doesnt happen. In addition to the repeated countdowns to Pattons death from a suspicious car accident, the authors have provided the last hour of Field Marshal Rommels life, the last hours of FDRs, and the last moments of the Nazi dictator. Each is described in fascinating detail such as Rommels son Manfred shaking his fathers hand just before the older man is forced to commit suicide; the portrait painter encouraged by the flush in FDRs cheeks, unaware that it portends a fatal heart attack; a palsied Hitler slouching toward a blue and white sofa in his bunker where he will simultaneously bite down on a cyanide pill and fire a bullet into his temple. This is a gripping, highly readable book that history buffs are sure to love. Friday, October 10, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, October 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A changing situation calls for a change in plans. Although you might prefer the schedule you had already worked up, you could do better by agreeing to make the needed adjustments. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That once seemingly rock-solid proposition you favored might be hiding some serious flaws. Take time to check it more carefully and question anything that seems out of kilter. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Finish up those lingering tasks so that you can then arrange to spend some time in quiet reflection. This will go a long way in restoring physical and spiritual energies. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A family situation could heat up and boil over unless you deal with it as soon as possible. Try to persuade other family members to work with you to cool things down. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Cheer up, Kitty Cat! That low feeling will begin to ebb by midweek, and you should be back in the social swirl in time for the weekend. A long-postponed deal could be starting up again. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Going too fast and too far on too little knowledge could be risky. Best to slow down and check for any gaps in your information. Its what you dont know that could hurt you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Trying to make peace among quarreling family members, friends or colleagues can be tough. Expect some resistance, maybe even some expressions of resentment. But stay with it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Changing your mind doesnt have to be a problem once you realize that you might have good and sufficient cause to do so. Make your explanations clear and complete. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) An unkept promise can be irksome and easily raise the Archers ire. But instead of getting into a confrontation, take time to check why someone you relied on came up short. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to January 19) A new workplace distraction creates an unnecessary delay. The sooner you deal with it, the better.. A personal matter should be attended to as soon as possible. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Once again, the Aquarians gift for applying both practical and creative methods to resolve a situation makes all the difference. Personal relationships thrive during the weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A relationship appears to be losing its once-strong appeal for reasons that might be different from what you think. An open and honest talk could lead to some surprising revelations.

The measure, upon voter approval, would legalize medical marijuana, but its vague wording prompted a recent Miami Herald article to dub the amendment a smokescreen that leaves doctors or caregivers who are negligent in the recommendations for marijuana use without any liability in the case of any mishaps (1)a statement with which Florida drug treatment center Suncoast Rehabilitation Center agrees. Suncoast maintains that the amendment is a thinly veiled attempt to fast track the legalization of recreational marijuana in Florida and is dedicated to informing Florida citizens on the dangers of marijuana and urges educated voting. Rather than legalizing medical marijuana, Suncoast executives advise the use of non-psychoactive substances that help individuals in need while also keeping public safety and health intact. While Amendment 2 seems to have garnered some Floridians support, those who oppose the legalization have cited concerns about seemingly disturbing loopholes in the Amendment: Amendment 2 does not require a doctors prescription in order to obtain marijuana because that would violate federal law; only a doctors recommendation is needed, which is a determination that an individual suffers from an illness or condition that the physician feels the use of marijuana would be appropriate for relief of that symptom. Furthermore, the issue of liability has been raised; doctors and physicians and growers, dispensaries and smokers everyone within the marijuana distribution chain are granted full civil and criminal immunity and cannot be held liable for any mishaps. Essentially, this erases any patient protections that the current checks and balances of the legal system offer. Suncoast Executive Director, Tammy Strickling, maintains that the above technicalities, when combined with the lax parameters put in place by the loosely-worded Amendment, allow for marijuana to be recommended for any possible conditionessentially making the drug available to all ages for any type of pain or discomfort. There is no age restriction in the amendment, meaning that teens and children will be able to legally purchase pot without their parents consent. People of any age can be labelled a qualifying patient which simply means that they have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition or some other condition, and any caregiver can assist the child or teen in getting and using the drug, said Strickling. But Strickling poses yet another troubling question: will the legalization of marijuana act as an impetus for yet another potential drug epidemic in Florida, the original home of the pill mill? As a state which has yet to ensure that the only people who have access to drugs are those who truly need them, the likelihood that medical marijuana will be any different is slim to none, per Strickling. Suncoast officials say that todays marijuana has the highest THC levels ever seenmarijuana sold in pot shops as medicine is testing at THC levels in the mid 20% range, which is much higher than marijuana sold on the street, and dwarfs levels seen nearly 40 years ago, when the average THC potency was 1.37%. Because marijuana users can suffer from difficult withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability, decreased appetite and anxiety, treatment can be a critical first stepand the number of people seeking help will likely grow as marijuana continues to be the illicit drug of choice among American teens and adults, per Strickling. Statistics show that daily or almost daily marijuana use increased from 5.1 million Americans in 2007 to 7.6 million in 2012. (2) Strickling maintains that the key to stemming the rise of a potential epidemic is by limiting, rather than increasing, access to drugs such as marijuana. Furthermore, public education about the potential dangers of drug abuse is While were all concerned about ISIS crashing planes into buildings or spreading poison on U.S. subways, Im a little fearful about a couple of other things that have been in the news lately. First, theres the Ebola virus. Since its outbreak in West Africa, the fatalities continue to mount. One man in Dallas may have exposed others after he went to a local hospital, was misdiagnosed and sent home with antibiotics. When he got worse he was back in the hospital, this time properly diagnosed and isolated. He had flown from West Africa to Europe, then connected to Dulles Airport in Washington and then to Dallas-Fort Worth. There were a couple of others flown under quarantine to the U.S. for treatment, and, as of Sunday, another victim was headed for America. You hate to quarantine everyone coming to the U.S. who has been in that part of the world, but when it comes to saving lives, that might be necessary. Second, theres Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). A 4-year-old boy in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, not far from Atlantic City, went to sleep the night of Sept. 24 and never woke up. It was determined that he was probably killed by EVD68. You say youve never heard of it? Unfortunately, youre not alone. Heres part of a story from Reuters: More than 500 people, mostly children, in 43 states and the District of Columbia have been infected with EV-D68 since mid-August, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At least four others have died this year, although the CDC said it is unclear what role the virus played in their deaths. A 10-year-old Rhode Island girl diagnosed with EV-D68 who died earlier this month was also suffering from a staph infection, according to state health officials. In Colorado, 11 children have been treated for limb weakness or paralysis-like symptoms after coming down with a respiratory virus that tests have not conclusively linked to the nationwide EV-D68 outbreak, a spokeswoman for Childrens Hospital Colorado said on Friday. The phrase not conclusively linked is a catchword for we dont know what caused it, but it could be the killer virus that has spread across the U.S. I have several relatives who are going to be doing some flying in the next few weeks, and that always makes me nervous. But hearing about these diseases gives me cause for greater concern, because of the possibility that they could spread and kill people we know and love. This is worth monitoring for everyone in the U.S. Its always good to remind people about good sanitation, washing hands, sneezing or coughing into the arm, etc. And its always good to go see a doctor at the first sign of any unusual symptoms either in you, your children or your grandchildren. Yes, terrorism is a real threat. But so are these diseases, and we should be careful to monitor the progress of the fight against them. If we dont, were just inviting danger into our lives.

Acouple of years ago, the Citizen and Messenger ran a story after an interview with some West Port High School students who were going to graduate with Associate Degrees from the College of Central Florida a few weeks before they would get their high school diplomas. The students knowledge and self-assurance was evident during the interview, and it was apparent that they had been well-trained during their high school years. That tradition of graduating students in this manner has continued at West Port and the numbers have grown. Its a testament to the students themselves, the faculty and the administration. When you walk around the West Port campus, its easy to think youre at a small college facility. Everything is designed to bring out the best in the young people who go to class there. It takes someone to pull all this together, and in the case of West Port that title belongs to Principal Jayne Ellspermann. Now in her 10th year, she has built up the academics at this school to a point where it is the envy of many a person in the educational community. Her work has not gone unnoticed. Earlier this summer, she was named the Florida Principal of the Year, quite an honor in a state with as many schools as the Sunshine State boasts. But the recognition did not end there. This week she was named the National Principal of the Year at a surprise assembly at the school in front of many students, faculty members and local and state officials. We believe its an honor well deserved. She has shown that with the proper motivation and guidance, todays young people can become productive members of society. When students graduate from West Port, they know that they have learned under the leadership of someone who cares about them, who wants to see them succeed in all walks of life. Other schools, whether in Marion County or elsewhere, should take notice. We feel that young people want to learn, want to better themselves, and only need the guidance that a good school and a good faculty can provide. Jayne Ellspermann has put together an action plan that provides the proper leadership for our students. We join others in congratulating her on her award. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Our principal is the best Diseases may threaten more than ISIS Rehab center: Pot amendment is smokescreen READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEEPOT, PAGE9 Fairness Fairness requires not that every point of view receive equal weight but that every valid position receives equal respect. Thus the pro-life position should be treated with the same validity as prochoice; small-government conservatives with the same respect as tax-and-spend liberals; Republicans as more compassionate than they sound and Democrats as less omniscient than they think. But since individuals are partisan at heart, one must sift through the opinionated punditry from each side taking all the biases and agendas into account to arrive at an informed understanding of any issue. Name calling or making fun of others is never an argument for your side. Its good to remember that rarely is everything all black or white but more likely gray. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunPot is illegalIm not a lawyer, but in limited research Ive learned that the sale of marijuana is against federal law, and a Florida Constitutional Amendment wouldnt change that. So if it passes, why not just arrest those who sell pot and charge them under federal law. Seems quite simple.

POTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 It was a week when everything went just the way I had planned. It is hard to express your feelings when something like this happens because it rarely happens. The infamous To-Do-List from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was completed to her ecstatic satisfaction. That never happens. In fact, I finished it in time to have a little of Me Time. I sat on the back porch with a steaming hot cup of coffee and enjoyed an evening with nothing to do. I am not sure how long I sat there, but my coffee was just as hot as it was on my first sip. I do not know how my wife does those things. I have never enjoyed a cup of coffee more. I had an appointment across town and in traveling across town I never hit one red light. I think that should go into the Guinness book of records. It has never happened to me before and I was reveling in the deepest kind of satisfaction I have ever known. I got to my destination 20 minutes early. I love early. After paying all my bills for the week and balancing my checkbook, I had $100 left over. What in the world, do you do with $100 left over after paying all your bills? It did not take long to come up with a solution. I decided to take my wife out for supper on Friday night at her favorite restaurant. It was a glorious night on the town and the service at the restaurant was superb. Never have I enjoyed a more wonderful time on the town. The steak was done to a perfect T, just the way I like it. The waitress kept my coffee cup filled to the brim. All through our meal, neither cell phones rang nor did we receive a text from anybody. Now seriously, how often does that happen? I checked several times to make sure my phone was still on. I sat back and decided to enjoy our anonymity. It is good to just chill together. As we came near the end of our delectable evening repast, I was about to mention to my wife what a tremendous week we were having and then... If everything goes right, somethings definitely wrong Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Then, I woke up. It was all just a dream. A good dream, but a dream nevertheless. Why is it dreams never come true? Why is it that my dream life is so much superior to my actual life? No wonder as a person gets older they want to spend more time sleeping. I think I am just about there. For a brief moment, I experienced what a perfect week would look like, even if it was just in my dreams. A perfect week is not when everything goes our way, because, if everything goes right then you know something is wrong. Call it pessimism if you will or maybe just a dash of reality. It is when things go wrong that I begin to understand what life is all about. I begin to understand that nothing is perPLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 Sunday, Oct. 19 Jazz Society to performThe Ocala Jazz Society will be performing on Sunday, Oct. 19 from 2 to 5 p.m. at VFW Post 4781 across from Oak Run.

And, if nothing is perfect, then neither am I. I like that. The only perfect person at our residence is my wife, and I have her word on that and she never lies to me. Demanding perfection is a rather foolish thing. If I demand perfection from someone, they in turn are going to demand perfection from me. That is more stress than I care to live with, especially at my age. After over four decades of marital bliss, I have made an astounding discovery that has made my life so much more pleasurable. It took me a long time to come to this, but I sure am glad I have. For many years, I was hard on myself trying to be perfect in everything I did. Then, I got married and all of that went away. It was a struggle at first, but I came to one astounding conclusion that has changed my life and brought me to a point of chilling out for the rest of my life. In our home only one person needs to be perfect. That one person is not me. What a blessing it is to realize that you are not perfect and you do not have to live up to that standard of perfection. I can be goofy, make mistakes and act silly and nobody cares. All those years of trying to be perfect were wasted. Now I have come to the place where I have acceded to the fact that my wife is perfect. I gladly anoint her as Queen Perfection in our humble Castle. All of the burden now rests upon her. She does not need to worry; I am there to support her in that aura of perfection. The nice thing about all of this is, she does not need much help from me. It is almost like I am retired for the rest of my life with nothing else to do. The burden of perfection does not rest upon my shoulder. Oh yes, the checkbook. After looking at it while awake, I discovered I was $100 overdrawn. Solomon understood this when he wrote, All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirits, (Proverbs 16:2). Everything does not have to go right for me to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 The Chabad Jewish Center will be hosting a Community Sukkot Celebration, featuring Jewish Music, Glatt Kosher barbecue, Moon Bounce, face painting, snow cones and more in honor of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot and in solidarity with Jews throughout the world. Many adults and children from Marion county and The Villages will come together to enjoy and partake in this community wide celebration in honor this joyous Holiday, everyone will have a chance to make a blessing on the lulav and etrog in the largest Sukkah in our area. The Sukkot celebration will be held at the Chabad Jewish Center, 3509 SW 34th Ave. Circle Ocala on Oct. 12 at 12:30 p.m. No membership is required all are welcome! Sukkot is a Biblical Holiday, which commemorates the protective clouds that surrounded the Jewish nation as they wandered in the desert. In remembrance of that great miracle, we eat in a hut covered by bamboos or palm branches, for eight days. Jews also take four kinds of live vegetation; a citron, palm, willows and myrtle and bless then shake them together on each of the eight days. Eating together in a temporary hut signifies our trust in God and His constant protection over us. Taking the four kinds together is reminiscent of bringing all types of Jews together as equals, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht. This multiple message of faith, protection and unity is particularly relevant now when the entire world is threatened and our connection to God and to each other is the only anchor to keep us afloat in a confusing world. The Chabad Jewish Center is a branch of the Lubavitch-Chabad movement, an international Chassidic organization under the leadership of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson of righteous memory. With over 3500 centers and establishments around the globe, it is by far the largest network of Jewish religious and social services in the world. For further information on the above event, To RSVP or if you have any questions related to Sukkot, please call Rabbi Yossi Hecht 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org.

When we rescue a new dog or cat, we call the individuals on this list first to see if the pet meets their needs. This helps you get first crack at getting a wonderful pet. Adoption NewsWe are happy to report that cats Snuggles and Coco featured in last months column have been adopted into loving homes. We want to thank everyone who called to inquire about them. Sometimes it takes a long time to find the right home. Coco had been waiting two years for his forever home and his wish finally came true. Now his foster mates Smokey and Ebony are the last two cats left that need to be adopted. Here is a handsome picture of Smokey, who is about 5 years old. His best friend is 2year-old Ebony, who grooms and plays with him. They can go to a forever home together or separately. Both are being fostered by Arlene. Please call her at 875-9761 to meet one or both of them if youre in need of a new furry companion or two. Maybe Cocos good fortune will extend to them this month. We still need to find a new home for Mello the hound mix highlighted last month. Heres a better picture of Mello that shows his size hes only 28 lbs. It also shows that he likes cats, if youre looking for a companion for your kitty. He gets along very well with dogs, too. Hes just an all around good guy. Mello loves to ride in the golf cart and go to the dog park. Hes good natured and can fit into a number of different households. The most important thing for Mello is he needs his exercise because hes a young, active breed. He sits like a gentleman waiting for food or treats. Hell let you know when its time to do his business, and then hell wait patiently at the door while you fetch his leash. Mello would be perfect for an active senior, active individual, or family with older children. Once he gets his exercise in for the day hell be willing to chill with you on the couch. He also likes your company and likes to be petted. Please call the SPCA at (352) 3620985 to meet Mello. The SPCA would like to tell you about two dogs that a friend is fostering who are ready for adoption. We dont have pictures yet, but well try to get them for next month if theyre still available. Isabelle is a 9-month-old house-trained puppy who needs a fenced yard to play in. Shes long and lean and resembles a shar-pei/greyhound mix. Shes 50 lbs. now, but shouldnt get much bigger maybe to 55 or 60 lbs. Shes red and brown, is spayed, has all shots and knows basic commands. Shes full of energy, loves to play and retrieve, and is smart and obedient. Shes also good with cats. Hank is a two year old schnauzer/terrier mix with wire hair. This tan and brown boy is only 30 lbs., neutered, listens well and is quiet in the house. If either Isabelle or Hank appeals to you, please call Marilyn at 465-7137 to find out more.Hospice Pet Peace of Mind Program Hospice of Marion County has created a program called Pet Peace of Mind to help care for the animals of individuals in hospice care.

There is a training session for this program on October 22nd. You can call hospice at 873-7441 to learn more or volunteer your time. There is also a part of this program called Pet Visitors.

Its the first film being shown in the Series. As always, Dr. Pat Wellington gave a short talk on background and a bit of what to expect. Its a dark film about a wife in a confining and dull marriage. She decides that the best way to get her independence is through murder. Theres a great deal of cigarette smoking in just about every scene. It stars William Hurt as a credulous lawyer. This is Kathleen Turners debut movie and she takes the part of the wife. There was a great deal of nudity and sex which was not the norm in movies 30 odd years ago.CorrectionThe date for the Bobby Darin Show at the Cultural Center is Sunday, Oct. 26 at 3 p.m. Another publication publishedFriday, October 10, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, October 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com 954 E.

Friday, October 10, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com launched giving students autonomy over an hour of their school day for academic enrichment, open labs, clubs, and other creative opportunities. Three years of PowerHour has produced a more personalized and successful school environment: course failure has nearly disappeared, the graduation rate has jumped 15 points, and participation in activities has increased seven-fold to nearly 70%. As well, West Port is an A school and boasts the highest test scores in the district. West Port students can also graduate with an associates degree before graduating from high school thanks to an on-campus college program Ellspermann also spearheaded. A former law enforcement officer, Ellspermann joined Marion County Public Schools 34 years ago as a high school social studies teacher. She holds a bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Georgia and a masters degree in education from the University of Florida. Jayne Ellspermann believes in students and pushes them to succeed by convincing them the future is theirs to control, said Superintendent George Tomyn of Marion County Public Schools. Make it a great day or not, the choice is yours is the standard mantra at WPHS, he added. Ellspermann supports this student-focused theme by developing and leading dedicated teachers who deliver outstanding instruction and guidance to West Port students. Jayne Ellspermann simply sees no limit to her students potential nor to the schools potential to help them fulfill it, said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti. Her passion and focus on personalization, academic rigor, and collaborative leadership hallmarks of NASSPs Breaking Ranks framework for school improvement keep her moving ever forward to find creative ways to ensure each student in her school is known and well served. The search for this years national principal of the year started in early 2014 as each state principals association selected its state middle level and high school principals of the year. From this pool of state winners, a panel of judges selected three middle level and three high school finalists. A separate panel then interviewed and rigorously reviewed the finalists applications to select the national winner. Each finalist received a $1,500 grant, and the national winner will receive an additional grant of $3,000. The grants will be used to improve learning at the school. For more information about the Principal of the Year program, please visit www.nassp.org/poy. The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) is the leading organization of and national voice for middle level and high school principals, assistant principals, and all school leaders from across the United States and more than 36 countries around the world. The association connects and engages school leaders through advocacy, research, education, and student programs. NASSP advocates on behalf of all school leaders to ensure the success of each student and strengthens school leadership practices through the design and delivery of high quality professional learning experiences. Reflecting its long-standing commitment to student leadership development, NASSP administers the National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, National Elementary Honor Society, and National Association of Student Councils.

BY JOHN EVERLOVE The Cherrywood Veterans Club met on Thursday, Oct. 2 in the clubhouse. Guest speaker Alex Reid II from Baldwin Brothers Cremation Society gave an excellent and informative presentation including many handouts. For more information about the service they offer you can contact him directly at 430-1449. Immediately following the guest speaker; many items were discussed including Support our Soldiers: This program is going to continue under the direction of Trude Smith and Peggy Konar. Details are being worked out and a full report will be available at next months meeting. The Veterans Club is holding a food drive from 9 until 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 22. All of our residents are asked to put non-perishable food items; cleaning supplies; toilet paper and paper towels; and personal hygiene items in a plastic bag. Place the plastic bag near your mailbox and a volunteer will be around to collect these donations. Last food drive we collected three pick up truck loads of goods for Ritz House. We would like to make it four if possible this time around. These food drives greatly benefit the homeless Vets as they transmission into society. Veterans Day, Nov. 11 will be a gala day at Cherrywood. Along with the outdoor ceremony at 11 a.m. there will also be an indoor ceremony where Patriot Dog Project will be given another service dog in the name of Central College of Florida. The new dogs name will be Patriot in honor of the CCF mascot. A special donation from the man we call Norm enabled us to make this gift. Norman is a generous patron and supporter of our Veterans Club. We salute Norm for his thoughtful and charitable gift. Dignitaries from the College; Patriot Dog Project and Marion SPCA will all be in attendance for this monumental event. You wont want to miss out on this special ceremony. Immediately following the presentation we will have an all American picnic of hot dogs and hamburgers plus all the fixings. Tickets are $7 each and are necessary for the indoor service and food. Our outdoor ceremony is open to the public and is free of charge. A ticket booth will also be set up in the clubhouse with special hours. Watch the Citizen for times and dates. Wanda Huff presented a check that completes the funds needed for our 5th Patriot Dog donation. Our newest addition to the Patriot Dog family will be named Billyjoe in honored memory of Wandas late husband, Bill. We thank Wanda and all of the donors who continue to make this project so successful. A Christmas luncheon for our widows has been scheduled for Dec. 16 at the Appleton Museum. Again, this annual event is sponsored by Norman. More details will follow. Volunteers are needed for Veterans Day Nov. 11 and for the Steel Horse Stampede to benefit Hospice of Marion County on Nov.1 from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. Call President Bill Mahar at 8731341 to sign up for either or both of these events. Lastly, the Board of Cherrywood Veterans Club took time at the end of the meeting to honor me with a beautiful plaque. The inscription reads, In Appreciation for your Loyal Service. This presentation was a total surprise to me and greatly appreciated. I would like to thank President Bill Mahar; Vice President Bill Spangenberg; Treasurer Rich Hurley; Secretary Sarah Blair; Sgt. at Arms Marty Duesel and the Veterans Club membership for this high honor. dleboat $70 Nov. 8: Early Bird Dinner Theater Miracle on So.

But did you know that in order to achieve the different effects created on the jewelry, ornaments and vases, polymer clay canes have to be created.

In our next workshop, you will learn how to create these canes so you can make your own creations. This two-part workshop will led by artist and teacher Connie Ferreira, member of the North Central Florida Polymer Clay Guild, and will begin on Wednesday, Oct. 22 and continue on Oct. 29, both at 10 a.m. in the Craft Room.

It's human nature, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. But, AMAC suggests that we need to overcome inertia and find ways of improving our heart rates and blood sugar levels by good exercise habits. Of course, it is important to check with your doctor before beginning any regimen that involves strenuous activities. Perhaps he or she can offer specific "do's and don'ts" that will still let you indulge in exercise.

Dear Readers, have you noticed that when you are retired you seem to have more time to think about things, or is just me? For example, why does everyone seem to be in such a hurry? I love to drive down our beautiful boulevard (30 mph) and just feel so thankful that I live here in Oak Run. The other day I even had a guest riding with me, a gecko riding on my hood. It seemed to enjoy the ride although it kept looking in the window like it wanted to get off. I did pull over and had a time getting it to jump off. Thank you to the lady who stopped and asked if I needed help. Thinking about living here in Marion County I began to think what is the history of this area which led me to a book Images of America Ocala. Would you believe that what is now Marion County was inhabited by Timucua Indians. There were many little villages and some had as many as 200 houses, round, wooden huts covered with mud and palm fronds to keep warm in winter and cool in summer. Just imagine an Indian family might have lived on your home site. No air conditioning for these folks. We live here so shouldnt we wonder about the history? Now enough of my thinking! Oak Run has some really cool events coming. The Health Fair is a great place to stop, look around and ask questions. I enjoyed it last year. Of course we have Hello Dolly this weekend and all the others listed in column. Laura SmithOak Run Health FairOur annual Health Fair will be held on Thursday, Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Palm Grove Auditorium.

It's human nature, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. But, AMAC suggests that we need to overcome inertia and find ways of improving our heart rates and blood sugar levels by good exercise habits. Of course, it is important to check with your doctor before beginning any regimen that involves strenuous activities. Perhaps he or she can offer specific "do's and don'ts" that will still let you indulge in exercise.

BY JOHN EVERLOVE The Cherrywood Veterans Club met on Thursday, Oct. 2 in the clubhouse. Guest speaker Alex Reid II from Baldwin Brothers Cremation Society gave an excellent and informative presentation including many handouts. For more information about the service they offer you can contact him directly at 430-1449. Immediately following the guest speaker; many items were discussed including Support our Soldiers: This program is going to continue under the direction of Trude Smith and Peggy Konar. Details are being worked out and a full report will be available at next months meeting. The Veterans Club is holding a food drive from 9 until 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 22. All of our residents are asked to put non-perishable food items; cleaning supplies; toilet paper and paper towels; and personal hygiene items in a plastic bag. Place the plastic bag near your mailbox and a volunteer will be around to collect these donations. Last food drive we collected three pick up truck loads of goods for Ritz House. We would like to make it four if possible this time around. These food drives greatly benefit the homeless Vets as they transmission into society. Veterans Day, Nov. 11 will be a gala day at Cherrywood. Along with the outdoor ceremony at 11 a.m. there will also be an indoor ceremony where Patriot Dog Project will be given another service dog in the name of Central College of Florida. The new dogs name will be Patriot in honor of the CCF mascot. A special donation from the man we call Norm enabled us to make this gift. Norman is a generous patron and supporter of our Veterans Club. We salute Norm for his thoughtful and charitable gift. Dignitaries from the College; Patriot Dog Project and Marion SPCA will all be in attendance for this monumental event. You wont want to miss out on this special ceremony. Immediately following the presentation we will have an all American picnic of hot dogs and hamburgers plus all the fixings. Tickets are $7 each and are necessary for the indoor service and food. Our outdoor ceremony is open to the public and is free of charge. A ticket booth will also be set up in the clubhouse with special hours. Watch the Citizen for times and dates. Wanda Huff presented a check that completes the funds needed for our 5th Patriot Dog donation. Our newest addition to the Patriot Dog family will be named Billyjoe in honored memory of Wandas late husband, Bill. We thank Wanda and all of the donors who continue to make this project so successful. A Christmas luncheon for our widows has been scheduled for Dec. 16 at the Appleton Museum. Again, this annual event is sponsored by Norman. More details will follow. Volunteers are needed for Veterans Day Nov. 11 and for the Steel Horse Stampede to benefit Hospice of Marion County on Nov.1 from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. Call President Bill Mahar at 8731341 to sign up for either or both of these events. Lastly, the Board of Cherrywood Veterans Club took time at the end of the meeting to honor me with a beautiful plaque. The inscription reads, In Appreciation for your Loyal Service. This presentation was a total surprise to me and greatly appreciated. I would like to thank President Bill Mahar; Vice President Bill Spangenberg; Treasurer Rich Hurley; Secretary Sarah Blair; Sgt. at Arms Marty Duesel and the Veterans Club membership for this high honor. dleboat $70 Nov. 8: Early Bird Dinner Theater Miracle on So.

But did you know that in order to achieve the different effects created on the jewelry, ornaments and vases, polymer clay canes have to be created.

In our next workshop, you will learn how to create these canes so you can make your own creations. This two-part workshop will led by artist and teacher Connie Ferreira, member of the North Central Florida Polymer Clay Guild, and will begin on Wednesday, Oct. 22 and continue on Oct. 29, both at 10 a.m. in the Craft Room.

Friday, October 10, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 24~ Friday, October 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com launched giving students autonomy over an hour of their school day for academic enrichment, open labs, clubs, and other creative opportunities. Three years of PowerHour has produced a more personalized and successful school environment: course failure has nearly disappeared, the graduation rate has jumped 15 points, and participation in activities has increased seven-fold to nearly 70%. As well, West Port is an A school and boasts the highest test scores in the district. West Port students can also graduate with an associates degree before graduating from high school thanks to an on-campus college program Ellspermann also spearheaded. A former law enforcement officer, Ellspermann joined Marion County Public Schools 34 years ago as a high school social studies teacher. She holds a bachelors degree in psychology from the University of Georgia and a masters degree in education from the University of Florida. Jayne Ellspermann believes in students and pushes them to succeed by convincing them the future is theirs to control, said Superintendent George Tomyn of Marion County Public Schools. Make it a great day or not, the choice is yours is the standard mantra at WPHS, he added. Ellspermann supports this student-focused theme by developing and leading dedicated teachers who deliver outstanding instruction and guidance to West Port students. Jayne Ellspermann simply sees no limit to her students potential nor to the schools potential to help them fulfill it, said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti. Her passion and focus on personalization, academic rigor, and collaborative leadership hallmarks of NASSPs Breaking Ranks framework for school improvement keep her moving ever forward to find creative ways to ensure each student in her school is known and well served. The search for this years national principal of the year started in early 2014 as each state principals association selected its state middle level and high school principals of the year. From this pool of state winners, a panel of judges selected three middle level and three high school finalists. A separate panel then interviewed and rigorously reviewed the finalists applications to select the national winner. Each finalist received a $1,500 grant, and the national winner will receive an additional grant of $3,000. The grants will be used to improve learning at the school. For more information about the Principal of the Year program, please visit www.nassp.org/poy. The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) is the leading organization of and national voice for middle level and high school principals, assistant principals, and all school leaders from across the United States and more than 36 countries around the world. The association connects and engages school leaders through advocacy, research, education, and student programs. NASSP advocates on behalf of all school leaders to ensure the success of each student and strengthens school leadership practices through the design and delivery of high quality professional learning experiences. Reflecting its long-standing commitment to student leadership development, NASSP administers the National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, National Elementary Honor Society, and National Association of Student Councils.

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.Maria Robinson Just because at least 80% of us living in this community are 55 years of age or older is no excuse to stop trying something new. Each moment offers us the opportunity to be and/or do something different. Most of us are no longer working to put food on the table, etc. Those working or volunteering are doing so because they choose to. This means we are free to start a new ending if we choose to.Master the PossibilitiesAnother impressive week with 40+ classes/presentations and we would like to highlight two: How to Save Money on My Utility Bill?

The price is right so call John before he starts a stand-by list at 873-3516.The Deadlier than the Male Movie SeriesThe 1981 movie, Body Heat was shown at Cypress Hall on Oct. 2. Its the first film being shown in the Series. As always, Dr. Pat Wellington gave a short talk on background and a bit of what to expect. Its a dark film about a wife in a confining and dull marriage. She decides that the best way to get her independence is through murder. Theres a great deal of cigarette smoking in just about every scene. It stars William Hurt as a credulous lawyer. This is Kathleen Turners debut movie and she takes the part of the wife. There was a great deal of nudity and sex which was not the norm in movies 30 odd years ago.CorrectionThe date for the Bobby Darin Show at the Cultural Center is Sunday, Oct. 26 at 3 p.m. Another publication publishedFriday, October 10, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com 12~ Friday, October 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com 954 E.

When we rescue a new dog or cat, we call the individuals on this list first to see if the pet meets their needs. This helps you get first crack at getting a wonderful pet. Adoption NewsWe are happy to report that cats Snuggles and Coco featured in last months column have been adopted into loving homes. We want to thank everyone who called to inquire about them. Sometimes it takes a long time to find the right home. Coco had been waiting two years for his forever home and his wish finally came true. Now his foster mates Smokey and Ebony are the last two cats left that need to be adopted. Here is a handsome picture of Smokey, who is about 5 years old. His best friend is 2year-old Ebony, who grooms and plays with him. They can go to a forever home together or separately. Both are being fostered by Arlene. Please call her at 875-9761 to meet one or both of them if youre in need of a new furry companion or two. Maybe Cocos good fortune will extend to them this month. We still need to find a new home for Mello the hound mix highlighted last month. Heres a better picture of Mello that shows his size hes only 28 lbs. It also shows that he likes cats, if youre looking for a companion for your kitty. He gets along very well with dogs, too. Hes just an all around good guy. Mello loves to ride in the golf cart and go to the dog park. Hes good natured and can fit into a number of different households. The most important thing for Mello is he needs his exercise because hes a young, active breed. He sits like a gentleman waiting for food or treats. Hell let you know when its time to do his business, and then hell wait patiently at the door while you fetch his leash. Mello would be perfect for an active senior, active individual, or family with older children. Once he gets his exercise in for the day hell be willing to chill with you on the couch. He also likes your company and likes to be petted. Please call the SPCA at (352) 3620985 to meet Mello. The SPCA would like to tell you about two dogs that a friend is fostering who are ready for adoption. We dont have pictures yet, but well try to get them for next month if theyre still available. Isabelle is a 9-month-old house-trained puppy who needs a fenced yard to play in. Shes long and lean and resembles a shar-pei/greyhound mix. Shes 50 lbs. now, but shouldnt get much bigger maybe to 55 or 60 lbs. Shes red and brown, is spayed, has all shots and knows basic commands. Shes full of energy, loves to play and retrieve, and is smart and obedient. Shes also good with cats. Hank is a two year old schnauzer/terrier mix with wire hair. This tan and brown boy is only 30 lbs., neutered, listens well and is quiet in the house. If either Isabelle or Hank appeals to you, please call Marilyn at 465-7137 to find out more.Hospice Pet Peace of Mind Program Hospice of Marion County has created a program called Pet Peace of Mind to help care for the animals of individuals in hospice care.

And, if nothing is perfect, then neither am I. I like that. The only perfect person at our residence is my wife, and I have her word on that and she never lies to me. Demanding perfection is a rather foolish thing. If I demand perfection from someone, they in turn are going to demand perfection from me. That is more stress than I care to live with, especially at my age. After over four decades of marital bliss, I have made an astounding discovery that has made my life so much more pleasurable. It took me a long time to come to this, but I sure am glad I have. For many years, I was hard on myself trying to be perfect in everything I did. Then, I got married and all of that went away. It was a struggle at first, but I came to one astounding conclusion that has changed my life and brought me to a point of chilling out for the rest of my life. In our home only one person needs to be perfect. That one person is not me. What a blessing it is to realize that you are not perfect and you do not have to live up to that standard of perfection. I can be goofy, make mistakes and act silly and nobody cares. All those years of trying to be perfect were wasted. Now I have come to the place where I have acceded to the fact that my wife is perfect. I gladly anoint her as Queen Perfection in our humble Castle. All of the burden now rests upon her. She does not need to worry; I am there to support her in that aura of perfection. The nice thing about all of this is, she does not need much help from me. It is almost like I am retired for the rest of my life with nothing else to do. The burden of perfection does not rest upon my shoulder. Oh yes, the checkbook. After looking at it while awake, I discovered I was $100 overdrawn. Solomon understood this when he wrote, All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the Lord weigheth the spirits, (Proverbs 16:2). Everything does not have to go right for me to rejoice in the goodness of the Lord.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

PASTORCONTINUED FROM PAGE 9 The Chabad Jewish Center will be hosting a Community Sukkot Celebration, featuring Jewish Music, Glatt Kosher barbecue, Moon Bounce, face painting, snow cones and more in honor of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot and in solidarity with Jews throughout the world. Many adults and children from Marion county and The Villages will come together to enjoy and partake in this community wide celebration in honor this joyous Holiday, everyone will have a chance to make a blessing on the lulav and etrog in the largest Sukkah in our area. The Sukkot celebration will be held at the Chabad Jewish Center, 3509 SW 34th Ave. Circle Ocala on Oct. 12 at 12:30 p.m. No membership is required all are welcome! Sukkot is a Biblical Holiday, which commemorates the protective clouds that surrounded the Jewish nation as they wandered in the desert. In remembrance of that great miracle, we eat in a hut covered by bamboos or palm branches, for eight days. Jews also take four kinds of live vegetation; a citron, palm, willows and myrtle and bless then shake them together on each of the eight days. Eating together in a temporary hut signifies our trust in God and His constant protection over us. Taking the four kinds together is reminiscent of bringing all types of Jews together as equals, said Rabbi Yossi Hecht. This multiple message of faith, protection and unity is particularly relevant now when the entire world is threatened and our connection to God and to each other is the only anchor to keep us afloat in a confusing world. The Chabad Jewish Center is a branch of the Lubavitch-Chabad movement, an international Chassidic organization under the leadership of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson of righteous memory. With over 3500 centers and establishments around the globe, it is by far the largest network of Jewish religious and social services in the world. For further information on the above event, To RSVP or if you have any questions related to Sukkot, please call Rabbi Yossi Hecht 352-291-2218 or email info@jewishmarion.org.

POTCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 It was a week when everything went just the way I had planned. It is hard to express your feelings when something like this happens because it rarely happens. The infamous To-Do-List from the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was completed to her ecstatic satisfaction. That never happens. In fact, I finished it in time to have a little of Me Time. I sat on the back porch with a steaming hot cup of coffee and enjoyed an evening with nothing to do. I am not sure how long I sat there, but my coffee was just as hot as it was on my first sip. I do not know how my wife does those things. I have never enjoyed a cup of coffee more. I had an appointment across town and in traveling across town I never hit one red light. I think that should go into the Guinness book of records. It has never happened to me before and I was reveling in the deepest kind of satisfaction I have ever known. I got to my destination 20 minutes early. I love early. After paying all my bills for the week and balancing my checkbook, I had $100 left over. What in the world, do you do with $100 left over after paying all your bills? It did not take long to come up with a solution. I decided to take my wife out for supper on Friday night at her favorite restaurant. It was a glorious night on the town and the service at the restaurant was superb. Never have I enjoyed a more wonderful time on the town. The steak was done to a perfect T, just the way I like it. The waitress kept my coffee cup filled to the brim. All through our meal, neither cell phones rang nor did we receive a text from anybody. Now seriously, how often does that happen? I checked several times to make sure my phone was still on. I sat back and decided to enjoy our anonymity. It is good to just chill together. As we came near the end of our delectable evening repast, I was about to mention to my wife what a tremendous week we were having and then... If everything goes right, somethings definitely wrong Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Then, I woke up. It was all just a dream. A good dream, but a dream nevertheless. Why is it dreams never come true? Why is it that my dream life is so much superior to my actual life? No wonder as a person gets older they want to spend more time sleeping. I think I am just about there. For a brief moment, I experienced what a perfect week would look like, even if it was just in my dreams. A perfect week is not when everything goes our way, because, if everything goes right then you know something is wrong. Call it pessimism if you will or maybe just a dash of reality. It is when things go wrong that I begin to understand what life is all about. I begin to understand that nothing is perPLEASESEEPASTOR, PAGE10 Sunday, Oct. 19 Jazz Society to performThe Ocala Jazz Society will be performing on Sunday, Oct. 19 from 2 to 5 p.m. at VFW Post 4781 across from Oak Run.

The measure, upon voter approval, would legalize medical marijuana, but its vague wording prompted a recent Miami Herald article to dub the amendment a smokescreen that leaves doctors or caregivers who are negligent in the recommendations for marijuana use without any liability in the case of any mishaps (1)a statement with which Florida drug treatment center Suncoast Rehabilitation Center agrees. Suncoast maintains that the amendment is a thinly veiled attempt to fast track the legalization of recreational marijuana in Florida and is dedicated to informing Florida citizens on the dangers of marijuana and urges educated voting. Rather than legalizing medical marijuana, Suncoast executives advise the use of non-psychoactive substances that help individuals in need while also keeping public safety and health intact. While Amendment 2 seems to have garnered some Floridians support, those who oppose the legalization have cited concerns about seemingly disturbing loopholes in the Amendment: Amendment 2 does not require a doctors prescription in order to obtain marijuana because that would violate federal law; only a doctors recommendation is needed, which is a determination that an individual suffers from an illness or condition that the physician feels the use of marijuana would be appropriate for relief of that symptom. Furthermore, the issue of liability has been raised; doctors and physicians and growers, dispensaries and smokers everyone within the marijuana distribution chain are granted full civil and criminal immunity and cannot be held liable for any mishaps. Essentially, this erases any patient protections that the current checks and balances of the legal system offer. Suncoast Executive Director, Tammy Strickling, maintains that the above technicalities, when combined with the lax parameters put in place by the loosely-worded Amendment, allow for marijuana to be recommended for any possible conditionessentially making the drug available to all ages for any type of pain or discomfort. There is no age restriction in the amendment, meaning that teens and children will be able to legally purchase pot without their parents consent. People of any age can be labelled a qualifying patient which simply means that they have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition or some other condition, and any caregiver can assist the child or teen in getting and using the drug, said Strickling. But Strickling poses yet another troubling question: will the legalization of marijuana act as an impetus for yet another potential drug epidemic in Florida, the original home of the pill mill? As a state which has yet to ensure that the only people who have access to drugs are those who truly need them, the likelihood that medical marijuana will be any different is slim to none, per Strickling. Suncoast officials say that todays marijuana has the highest THC levels ever seenmarijuana sold in pot shops as medicine is testing at THC levels in the mid 20% range, which is much higher than marijuana sold on the street, and dwarfs levels seen nearly 40 years ago, when the average THC potency was 1.37%. Because marijuana users can suffer from difficult withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability, decreased appetite and anxiety, treatment can be a critical first stepand the number of people seeking help will likely grow as marijuana continues to be the illicit drug of choice among American teens and adults, per Strickling. Statistics show that daily or almost daily marijuana use increased from 5.1 million Americans in 2007 to 7.6 million in 2012. (2) Strickling maintains that the key to stemming the rise of a potential epidemic is by limiting, rather than increasing, access to drugs such as marijuana. Furthermore, public education about the potential dangers of drug abuse is While were all concerned about ISIS crashing planes into buildings or spreading poison on U.S. subways, Im a little fearful about a couple of other things that have been in the news lately. First, theres the Ebola virus. Since its outbreak in West Africa, the fatalities continue to mount. One man in Dallas may have exposed others after he went to a local hospital, was misdiagnosed and sent home with antibiotics. When he got worse he was back in the hospital, this time properly diagnosed and isolated. He had flown from West Africa to Europe, then connected to Dulles Airport in Washington and then to Dallas-Fort Worth. There were a couple of others flown under quarantine to the U.S. for treatment, and, as of Sunday, another victim was headed for America. You hate to quarantine everyone coming to the U.S. who has been in that part of the world, but when it comes to saving lives, that might be necessary. Second, theres Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). A 4-year-old boy in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, not far from Atlantic City, went to sleep the night of Sept. 24 and never woke up. It was determined that he was probably killed by EVD68. You say youve never heard of it? Unfortunately, youre not alone. Heres part of a story from Reuters: More than 500 people, mostly children, in 43 states and the District of Columbia have been infected with EV-D68 since mid-August, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At least four others have died this year, although the CDC said it is unclear what role the virus played in their deaths. A 10-year-old Rhode Island girl diagnosed with EV-D68 who died earlier this month was also suffering from a staph infection, according to state health officials. In Colorado, 11 children have been treated for limb weakness or paralysis-like symptoms after coming down with a respiratory virus that tests have not conclusively linked to the nationwide EV-D68 outbreak, a spokeswoman for Childrens Hospital Colorado said on Friday. The phrase not conclusively linked is a catchword for we dont know what caused it, but it could be the killer virus that has spread across the U.S. I have several relatives who are going to be doing some flying in the next few weeks, and that always makes me nervous. But hearing about these diseases gives me cause for greater concern, because of the possibility that they could spread and kill people we know and love. This is worth monitoring for everyone in the U.S. Its always good to remind people about good sanitation, washing hands, sneezing or coughing into the arm, etc. And its always good to go see a doctor at the first sign of any unusual symptoms either in you, your children or your grandchildren. Yes, terrorism is a real threat. But so are these diseases, and we should be careful to monitor the progress of the fight against them. If we dont, were just inviting danger into our lives. And no one wants the tragic results of these diseases in our community.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and South Marion Citizen.

Acouple of years ago, the Citizen and Messenger ran a story after an interview with some West Port High School students who were going to graduate with Associate Degrees from the College of Central Florida a few weeks before they would get their high school diplomas. The students knowledge and self-assurance was evident during the interview, and it was apparent that they had been well-trained during their high school years. That tradition of graduating students in this manner has continued at West Port and the numbers have grown. Its a testament to the students themselves, the faculty and the administration. When you walk around the West Port campus, its easy to think youre at a small college facility. Everything is designed to bring out the best in the young people who go to class there. It takes someone to pull all this together, and in the case of West Port that title belongs to Principal Jayne Ellspermann. Now in her 10th year, she has built up the academics at this school to a point where it is the envy of many a person in the educational community. Her work has not gone unnoticed. Earlier this summer, she was named the Florida Principal of the Year, quite an honor in a state with as many schools as the Sunshine State boasts. But the recognition did not end there. This week she was named the National Principal of the Year at a surprise assembly at the school in front of many students, faculty members and local and state officials. We believe its an honor well deserved. She has shown that with the proper motivation and guidance, todays young people can become productive members of society. When students graduate from West Port, they know that they have learned under the leadership of someone who cares about them, who wants to see them succeed in all walks of life. Other schools, whether in Marion County or elsewhere, should take notice. We feel that young people want to learn, want to better themselves, and only need the guidance that a good school and a good faculty can provide. Jayne Ellspermann has put together an action plan that provides the proper leadership for our students. We join others in congratulating her on her award. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion. Opinion OUR VIEW COMMENTARY Our principal is the best Diseases may threaten more than ISIS Rehab center: Pot amendment is smokescreen READER OPINIONS INVITED Jim Clark Editor PLEASESEEPOT, PAGE9 Fairness Fairness requires not that every point of view receive equal weight but that every valid position receives equal respect. Thus the pro-life position should be treated with the same validity as prochoice; small-government conservatives with the same respect as tax-and-spend liberals; Republicans as more compassionate than they sound and Democrats as less omniscient than they think. But since individuals are partisan at heart, one must sift through the opinionated punditry from each side taking all the biases and agendas into account to arrive at an informed understanding of any issue. Name calling or making fun of others is never an argument for your side. Its good to remember that rarely is everything all black or white but more likely gray. Gerard Chapdelaine Oak RunPot is illegalIm not a lawyer, but in limited research Ive learned that the sale of marijuana is against federal law, and a Florida Constitutional Amendment wouldnt change that. So if it passes, why not just arrest those who sell pot and charge them under federal law. Seems quite simple.

KILLING PATTON: The Strange Death of WWIIs Most Audacious General By Bill OReilly and Martin Dugard In his Killing series Bill OReilly has capitalized on an historical subgenrethe deaths of famous people. His latest, Killing Patton, may well be his greatest achievement by far. It begins with riveting battle scenes during the 1944 Allied offensive to take back Europe, culminating in a massive, German counter-attack just when WWII seemed over. General George S. Patton, disgraced for slapping a G.I. in a hospital ward and sidelined during D-Day, responds with his crack Third Army to the siege of Bastogne, the Battle of the Bulge, with all the drama of a great crusade. His heroic image restored, Patton looked east to find a way to beat the Russians into Berlin. It was not to be. General Dwight D. Eisenhower, seeing no strategic value in Berlin, allowed the Russians to take it. Yet as Winston Churchill knows all too well, the order could not have been given without the approval of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He was apparently blindsided into trusting the Russians, a mistake Harry Truman, a good poker player, wouldnt make. Seeing the inevitable end of the war in Europe, Patton set his sights on a reassignment to the Pacific. Again, it was not to be. Then, although Patton desperately misses the war, he decides to resign in order to speak frankly about the Russian threat. Some want to make sure that doesnt happen. In addition to the repeated countdowns to Pattons death from a suspicious car accident, the authors have provided the last hour of Field Marshal Rommels life, the last hours of FDRs, and the last moments of the Nazi dictator. Each is described in fascinating detail such as Rommels son Manfred shaking his fathers hand just before the older man is forced to commit suicide; the portrait painter encouraged by the flush in FDRs cheeks, unaware that it portends a fatal heart attack; a palsied Hitler slouching toward a blue and white sofa in his bunker where he will simultaneously bite down on a cyanide pill and fire a bullet into his temple. This is a gripping, highly readable book that history buffs are sure to love. Friday, October 10, 2014 ~ 7 www.smcitizen.com 30~ Friday, October 10, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A changing situation calls for a change in plans. Although you might prefer the schedule you had already worked up, you could do better by agreeing to make the needed adjustments. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That once seemingly rock-solid proposition you favored might be hiding some serious flaws. Take time to check it more carefully and question anything that seems out of kilter. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Finish up those lingering tasks so that you can then arrange to spend some time in quiet reflection. This will go a long way in restoring physical and spiritual energies. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A family situation could heat up and boil over unless you deal with it as soon as possible. Try to persuade other family members to work with you to cool things down. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Cheer up, Kitty Cat! That low feeling will begin to ebb by midweek, and you should be back in the social swirl in time for the weekend. A long-postponed deal could be starting up again. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Going too fast and too far on too little knowledge could be risky. Best to slow down and check for any gaps in your information. Its what you dont know that could hurt you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Trying to make peace among quarreling family members, friends or colleagues can be tough. Expect some resistance, maybe even some expressions of resentment. But stay with it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Changing your mind doesnt have to be a problem once you realize that you might have good and sufficient cause to do so. Make your explanations clear and complete. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) An unkept promise can be irksome and easily raise the Archers ire. But instead of getting into a confrontation, take time to check why someone you relied on came up short. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to January 19) A new workplace distraction creates an unnecessary delay. The sooner you deal with it, the better.. A personal matter should be attended to as soon as possible. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Once again, the Aquarians gift for applying both practical and creative methods to resolve a situation makes all the difference. Personal relationships thrive during the weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A relationship appears to be losing its once-strong appeal for reasons that might be different from what you think. An open and honest talk could lead to some surprising revelations.

Marion County Sheriff Chris Blair announces MCSOs new, free phone application that will help keep our citizens more in touch with whats going on in our county. Whether youre looking for mug shots, locations of sex offenders or breaking news alerts, this application is a must-download for Marion County residents. The Marion County Sheriffs Office application has information on missing persons, most wanted, sex offenders, inmates and mug shots, and even a section where citizens can commend a deputy if they feel they went above and beyond in the line of duty. You can submit a tip to Marion County Crimestoppers through this app, either by phoning it in or by text message. One of the most important features of this app is its ability to send out push notifications for missing persons alerts and for breaking news. This will allow the Sheriffs Office to immediately alert the community with information about critical incidents in Marion County. It is important to note that the money used to purchase this application did not come out of the taxpayers wallet. This phone app was paid for with fine and forfeiture money seized from drug dealers.

With one in eight women diagnosed each year, an estimated 232,340 new cases of breast cancer and 39,620 deaths will be reported in 2013. Among all women affected, 85 percent have no family history. Your fire fighters and paramedics work hard to save lives both on and off the job. They are motivated to get involved for many reasons, and often its because they have been personally affected by the disease, says Ryan OReilly, a fire fighter and paramedic with the Marion County Fire Rescue and secretary of the Professional Firefighters of Marion County, IAFF Local 3169. We are supporting breast cancer awareness and prevention by encouraging others to give so that no breast cancer patient goes without life-saving treatments or having hope for a cure. According to Scott Chappell, president of the Marion County Firefighters Benevolence Fund, the charitable foundation of the local fire fighters association, around $10,000 has been raised in recent years to support families affected by cancer, cancer research, and provide free mammograms to women who may not otherwise be able to afford early detection screenings. Last year alone, $3,500 was raised in support of Michelle-O-Gram, a local charity established in the memory Michelle Standridge, the wife of a Marion County fire fighter who lost her battle to cancer. This charity not only raises money to pay for mammograms, but also helps negotiate prices with radiology centers, which allows women without insurance or the necessary funds to obtain mammography testing as well as breast ultrasounds. For more information how you can help, please visit www.michelleogram.com. This year, the benevolence fund is also a sponsor of the Dancing with the Angels Ball, an event to help local women affected by breast cancer. The formal dinner and dance is on Saturday, Oct. 11, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Ocala Holiday Inn. For ticket information please call (352) 236-2599. Everyone is at risk for breast cancer. The two most important risk factors are being female and getting older. Most women diagnosed with breast cancer have no other known factors. To help reduce your risk, be sure to maintain a healthy weight, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, exercise and limit alcohol consumption. However, to help minimize the effects of this disease early detection is key. Your professional fire fighters encourage everyone in this community to participate in breast cancer awareness and prevention activities. For more information regarding the Marion County Firefighters Benevolence Fund fundraisers, please visit MCFBF.org. PINKCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Nows the time to go out and get some apples; its National Apple Month. Founded in 1904, its mission is to increase apple sales, enhance consumer awareness and usage of apples and apple products. I went looking for some apple trees along the corridor. My search was fruitless, so I traveled far north for some good delicious apple stories. The beginningA Briton, a Frenchman and a Russian were looking at a painting of Adam and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden. Look at their reserve, their calm, mused the Briton They must be British. Nonsense, the Frenchman disagreed. Theyre naked, and so beautiful. Clearly, they are French. No clothes, no shelter, the Russian pointed out, they have only an apple to eat, and theyre being told this is paradise. They are Russian.Apple investmentA young man asked an old rich man how he had made his money. The old guy said, Well, son, it was 1932, depth of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel; I invested that nickel in an apple and sold it for 10 cents. The next morning I invested those 10 cents in 2 apples sold them for 20 cents. By the end of that month, Id accumulated a fortune of $1.40. Then my wifes father died and left us 2 million dollars.Fruit headA man with an apple in one ear, a banana in the other ear and grapes up his nose went to see his Doctor. He said, Doctor, whats happening to me? The doctor replied, Youre not eating properly.Apple bitesAdam never had a date with Eve; it was an apple. The two worms didnt go into Noahs ark in an apple because everyone had to go in pairs. An apple a day keeps the doctor away; an onion a day keeps everybody away. Should New York City be called the Big Apple when its Washington, D.C., thats rotten to the core? At the party, I tried to be the first to fill my cup, but someone beat me to the punch. The Adam and Eve virus takes a couple of bytes out of your Apple phone. Mickey Mouse stole all of Minnies apples. Yep, he left Minnie apple less. I have kleptomania; but when it gets bad I take something for it. So excited for the Apple Watch. For years weve checked the time by looking at our phones. Having it on your wrist is genius. The surgeon who loved culture went to every opening. Cookie monsterThe children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted it on the apple tray, Take only one. God is watching. Getting to the core of things Pun Alley Dick Frank PLEASESEEPUN, PAGE34 Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, Take all you want. God is watching the apples.ApplesauceJake came rushing in to see his Dad. Dad! he puffed, is it true that an apple a day keeps the doctor away? Thats what they say, said his Dad. Well, give me an apple quick. Ive just broken the doctors windowNewtons applePhysics Teacher: Isaac Newton was sitting under a tree when an apple fell on his head and he discovered gravity. Isnt that wonderful? Student: Yes sir, if he had been sitting in class looking at books like us, he wouldnt have discovered anything.A to ZWife: How would you describe me? Husband: ABCDEFGHIJK. Wife: What does that mean? Husband: Adorable, beautiful, cute, delightful, elegant, fashionable, gorgeous, and hot. Wife: Thank you, but what about IJK? Husband: Im just kidding.Apple crisp? Sarah had wanted new kitchen cabinets for a long time, but her husband insisted they were an extravagance. She went to visit her mother for two weeks and when she returned, she was overjoyed to find that her husband had surprised her by installing beautiful new cabinets. A few days later, a neighbor came over to visit and after admiring the new cabinets, the neighbor added, All of us were so glad that the fire your husband had while you were away was confined to the kitchen.

PLEASESEEPRINCIPAL, PAGE24 Jayne Ellspermann of West Port High School in Ocala has been named the 2015 National Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). The award was announced Tuesday at a surprise assembly at the school attended by Florida Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart, elected state and local officials, students, teachers, and Ellspermanns own family. The announcement came as part of NASSPs celebration of National Principals Month. During her 10 years as West Port principal, Ellspermann has developed a college-going culture personalized for students.

There were no injuries, but two pets, a cat and a guinea pig, were lost. The Marion County Public Safety Communications Center received an emergency call reporting the fire at 10:51 a.m. The home was fully engulfed in flames when MCFR firefighters arrived at 483 Marion Oaks Golf Road, at 11:09 a.m. Crews attacked the fire from outside until it was safe to enter and search for victims. The home was unoccupied when the fire broke-out. However, when crews arrived, two vehicles in the homes driveway led to concerns that at least one person may have been inside. Twenty firefighters and command staff prevented the fire from spreading to wooded areas adjacent to the property and a single neighboring home. They had the fire under control in less than 20 minutes. MCFR fire inspectors are investigating the cause, which is currently unknown. The homeowners three dogs were able to escape the fire.
