James told the group he was at a conference in Orlando the previous month. He said he is in favor of the proposed school property tax that will also be on the ballot Nov. 4. I am in favor of that millage. We have been looking for that money for seven years. He told people that if they owned a $150,000 house the tax would cost them a Big Mac a month. He said he was a proponent of vocational education. He said he wants the board to provide a report card to the community every nine weeks to show where things stand. I believe in you, I want you to believe in me. Incumbent James says he favors ballot tax BY JIM CLARK EditorA Democratic candidate for Congress got to present his case in Marion County Monday at the State Road 200 Coalition meeting. Dave Koller, who is running against incumbent Rich Nugent, spoke to the Coalition as members gathered for their final meeting before the Nov. 4 election. Koller said he was tired of the bickering, stagnant actions and the behavior of the current Congress. The 43-year-old works with people with developmental disabilities, educating the young. He said he teaches them to be independent, and advocates for those who dont have a voice. He criticized Congress for going on vacation when there are many world problems that need immediate work. He didnt, however, criticize Nugent, but told the crowd, I would rather you vote for me and not against him. Koller blasted Congress for its inaction for veterans. We lose 22 veterans a day to suicide (in the U.S.), he said. Our VA has been brokenhas been broken and he paused to allow the crowd to answer, and he got the response he expected as some blurted out too long. He added, Im frustrated. Koller will be on the ballot for those who live in Congressional District 11. Koller makes case in race vs. Nugent PHOTO BY JIM CLARKBreast cancer awarenessPink flamingos have been making the rounds this month for breast cancer awareness during October, which is dedicated to the fight against this disease.

Lessons learned from Mother Teresa? Hear them localllyWhat has Mother Teresa got to teach us in todays world? The answer is: Plenty! Although she died in 1997, this diminutive whirlwind of devotion achieved the highest acclaim as well as derisive criticism during her lifetime of service to the poor, earning her the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Through it all she was unfaltering in her stance on compassion and dignity for the dying, no matter what their status. Her work with infants afflicted with AIDS was world-changing resulting in the creation of the Missions of Charity, which remains active in 133 countries. For 12 years beginning in 1985 until her death, Florida native Jim Towey had the good fortune to become not only legal counsel to Mother Teresa, but also a personal friend. He was a full-time volunteer for two years living with her order of priests in her Tijuana, Mexico seminary. Later he spent time caring for the dying in her hospice house for AIDS patients in Washington, DC. He was a member of the official delegation sent by the President of the United States for both her funeral in Calcutta and her 2003 beatification at St. Peters Basilica in Rome.

Those years learning directly from one of the greatest social change agents of the last century deeply influenced Towey. During his career in politics under President George W. Bush, he served as director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. He oversaw billions of dollars in federal grants awarded annually to faith-based charities, and his bipartisan collaboration persuaded more than 30 governors to open offices to assist religious charities in their states. At Mother Teresas urging, Towey founded the Tallahassee-based Aging with Dignity, a non-profit organization that helps families plan for end-oflife care. He is the author of the advance directive, Five Wishes, which has sold more than 14 million copies. As a lawyer, Towey developed this user-friendly document as an easy-tocomprehend living will that is more specific to personal needs. Today it is the most popular form of advance directive in the U.S., is legal in 42 states and available in 27 languages, just as Mother Teresa would have wished. Towey continues to be inspired by his years with Mother Teresa. Hear from him directly on how her perspectives on compassion toward others can make a difference in everyones life. Towey is the special guest speaker on Monday, Nov. 10, 4 to 6 p.m. at Hospice of Marion County in recognition of National Hospice Month. The event in The Elliott Center (3231 SW 34th Ave., Ocala) has limited seating, so RSVP today to (352) 854-5230 or lvarner@hospiceofmarion.com. Refreshments will be served and counselors will be available to distribute free Five Wishes. Dont miss this unique opportunity.

MOTHERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Plaque presentedThe Friendship Volunteer Fire Department, at its October meeting, presented a plaque in grateful appreciation to Leon Meyers who donated his time and materials to treat our Grass Truck. He applied a coating to preserve and protect the paint finish on the truck, which is expected to last approximately 10 years. Shown in the picture is Ed Lanza, President of the Fire Department presenting the plaque to Leon. The Friendship Volunteer Fire Department operates on donations from the community it serves. When 68-year-old Homosassa resident Alice Dunagan went for her annual mammogram, she was concerned when the results came back suspicious. After a digital mammogram and biopsy, she learned that she had stage 1 breast cancer. My initial reaction was panic and fear, says Dunagan. Im of the generation that believed The Big C is lethal, and something to really be feared. Theyve made such great strides in treatment in the past few years and after learning all of the treatment options, my fears were quite alleviated. In October of 2013, Dunagan underwent a lumpectomy to remove the tumor and surrounding lymph nodes. After that, she was referred to 21st Century Oncology and Board Certified Radiation Oncologist Jayanth G. Rao, M.D., for radiation therapy to eradicate any remaining cancer cells. I didnt know what I was getting into with radiation because I had never experienced it before, but it was not that difficult to handle, says Dunagan. I had AccuBoost for the two weeks, then external radiation therapy afterward. The staff at Dr. Raos office made me feel as comfortable as possible, and we even became friends. I had no side effects from treatment and am very pleased with the results. Now one year since treatment, Dunagan is sharing her story for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in hopes of raising awareness for early detection and yearly mammograms. Its extremely important to get mammograms every year. In my case, there was no lump because it was deep inside. Self exams are good as well, but the mammogram will show more, and it will show any issues earlier, Dunagan says. Early diagnosis makes treatment a whole lot easier. She credits her feelings today and her outcomes to Dr. Rao and his staff who made an otherwise negative experience very comfortable.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM P AGE 3 Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com PLEASESEECALENDAR, PAG E6 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenFor the election geeks who are waiting for this years campaign October surprise, give it up. Another tradition bites the dust. For those who dont eat, sleep and breathe politics, first of all, congratulations and in case you need it, an explanation: The October surprise was the predictable startling development or scandal, timed by one side or the other to explode into public view in the last days before the election. It would dominate the headlines and be all that the voters would be thinking of as they headed to the polls. Unfortunately, the October surprise may have become obsolete. Surprises just cant wait anymore. They startle us every day of the year, certainly every month. The ISIL surprise hit about June, give or take. Thats when our intelligence operatives were suddenly amazed that a huge force, thousands of well-equipped and financed brutal Sunni fanatics, had somehow assembled without raising meaningful alarms and were marauding wherever they wanted in Iraq and Syria. Surrrpriiise! That was just after Vladimir Putin astonished our befuddled national-security folks with his invasion of Crimea. Oh, the hand-wringing that has caused. Of course, there are those sudden crises that cant fairly be blamed on incompetence or someones cynical desire to promote a candidate or agenda. Obviously, the Ebola scourge that is still spreading is a case in point. The fact that we arent confident in the assurances that it isnt contagious except by direct contact or that it can be contained here reflects a well-deserved skepticism about our various institutions, public and private, that has infected our society as a whole. Its much like the fence jumper who recently got inside the White House and has wreaked havoc with the Secret Service by exposing a lot of dirty laundry about an agency we wanted to believe was solidly heroic but apparently is as bumbling as the rest of us. Whats really become a surprise is the discovery that someone or other is fulfilling the assignment he or she was paid to do. Even the finest political manipulator couldnt have arranged for a Hurricane Sandy to spread her destruction in the days before the 2012 election. But it sure affected the results. The impression that the Obama administration was competently doing its job in the days after the storm and the fact that a Republican governor, Chris Christie, was saying so turned Mother Natures surprise into a cakewalk at the polls. On the other side of the ledger, the Bush administrations economic collapse in 2008 just before the election and the confused reaction to it from GOP candidate John McCain most likely propelled Barack Obama into the White House the first time around. So, we may be making too much of the contrived October surprise where some oh-so-clever operative creates a sensation that catapults a candidate to Election Day success. Lets face it: Most of these significant moments simply happen. The guys who pull the strings in the races are just as likely to get tangled up as the rest of us. The truth is, theres probably just one thing that we can believe in, and thats a healthy disbelief. Which, by now, is no surprise. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd.

Friday, October 17, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 17, 2014 BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Special to the CitizenConservative talk-radio is hurting. Liberals are gleefully circling the wagons, celebrating their adversarys imminent demise, even as conservative talk-radio remains far more popular than liberal talk-radio. Liberals think they know the reason for the decline: they believe that conservatism is on the decline, and that conservatives are so dispirited with the nations leftward drift that theyve literally tuned out. Though theres a smidgen of truth to that, it isnt the answer. In truth, the real culprit might make liberals even happier; it will fuel the class envy they thrive upon. Conservative talk-radio is in peril because of conservative greedand not because of the greed of the millions of conservative faithful whove lent their hearts and minds and ears. Its no secret whats happening. Theres simply too much advertising on conservative talk-radio. Year after year, it gets worse. Anytime I tune in, I land on a litany of commercials. Commercials, commercials, commercials. Yes, you need advertising to pay the bills, but this is way over-the-top. Its unlistenable. Consider one of the top shows in the nation in the 3-6 p.m. slot, which Ill leave nameless. I used to listen daily. Now, I occasionally check in around 5:08, when the host finally starts the hour. He provides about 14 minutes of content before going to a long break that doesnt bring him back until about 5:27. At that point, he typically says something like, Okay, when we come back. He leaves for another marathon of advertisements (and some news) that doesnt end until around 5:37. The cycle repeats through the shows end. There cant be more than 33 minutes of actual program per hour. Its obscene. Why would anyone listen to this? I recall a conversation that I had a few years back with the late Fred Honsberger, a longtime leading talk-show host in Pittsburgh. I hadnt done his talk-show on the great KDKA in a while. I asked how it was going. They fill the show with junk! he shouted at me. People tune out! Then I get blamed for the lack of listeners! I didnt have the heart to tell Fred that I was one of the people who had tuned out. Too much junk. This begs the question: Why so much junk? To pay the costs, of course. But more specifically, to pay the gigantic, unsustainable fees these shows demand. Alas, this hits home for conservatives in my local marketplace. Here, the great mega-talker in Pittsburgh, 104.7 FM, WPGB, suddenly and shockingly folded. Imagine: the station that long carried Rush, Hannity, Glenn Beck, and others one day simply pulled the plug on these conservative icons. I know the station extremely well. Ive been a guest on practically every show. Ive guest-hosted on the station. One industry insider gave me a hint as to what happened at 104.7, and its the same thing happening at other stations around the country. He told me: Clear Channel is eliminating the talk format on WPGB and flipping it to a country music format. Limbaugh and Hannity are being moved over to (another station with a much lower signal) I spoke with a media executive who is familiar with Limbaughs contract. In a market the size of Pittsburgh Limbaugh receives a monthly talent fee of $35,000. Wow. Thats over $400,000 per year just for Rush Limbaugh, at one station in Pittsburgh! And thats merely Rush. Thats unaffordable. Cant these conservatives cut costs, as they demand of big-government liberals? Of course, its a free market. Rush and other hosts are free to earn whatever they receive. But also because its a free market, their stations and listeners are free to bolt. What surprises me is the degree to which some conservative hosts are willing to let their stations and listeners bolt, even as they rake in piles of money. Im especially surprised at how these hosts are willing to allow their excellent product to be diluted and damaged by an intolerable stream of annoying advertisements. It seems to me that these conservative hostschampions of the free marketare not listening to the free market. In my local market, Rush and Hannity and Glenn Beck have lost a 50,000-watt blowtorch in favor of a vastly inferior 7,000-watt signal that will be heard by far fewer listeners. I wont begrudge Rush and Many years ago (back in the Dark Ages) when I was in high school, I took three years of Spanish. My teacher was a member of the religious order at Bergen Catholic High School, at the time called the Irish Christian Brothers. His name was Brother Michael Herman Bradley. I learned Spanish with an Irish brogue. Dont get me wrong, Im not complaining. In our senior year, we had one of the parents bake a cake at the end of the year and we honored him. Brother Bradley, a crusty old veteran, was visibly touched. We liked him and were able to be glad to show him. Unfortunately, Brother Bradley, who was laughed at for his saying once, when he was upset with us, Youre men now, kids, wouldnt have been proud of me last Friday evening. I went all over my cable television to find the debate between Charlie Crist and Rick Scott in the governors race. I found it finally, but it was in Spanish. Sadly, I understood only about one word out of every 20 or so. I found where it was supposed to be in English, online only, but I could not get it to work. So I didnt get to watch the debate. How dare Crist and Scott agree to a debate that couldnt be understood by most Floridians? That was unforgiveable to me, and shows their disdain for the people of this great state. I heard one broadcaster offer as an excuse that percent of Florida voters are Hispanic. Im sorry, but the flip side is that 86 percent of Florida voters are NOT Hispanic, yet they were shut out in favor of the 14 percent. Im all for the Hispanic voters being able to share in the debate in their own language, preferably with the SAP button, but making it hard for English-speaking American-bred people to listen to that same debate is just plain wrong. I also have to wonder why Adrian Wyllie, the Libertarian candidate for governor, is being excluded from the debates. I dont care about the polls showing what percentage of votes he would get I care about fairness. Wyllie is not some wild-eyed fringe candidate who will only get 100 votes total in the state. He will get thousands of votes this November, probably not enough to win, but enough that future candidates will have to take notice. After the way Crist and Scott shut me out of last weeks debate, Im definitely considering voting for Wyllie. People say that it will be a wasted vote, but if enough of us do that, maybe the political parties will get the message that English-speaking Floridians count, too. And finally, I have to offer an apology to Brother Bradley. Even though its been 53 years since the late brother had us open our Spanish books, I should have been able to do better. Rest in peace, Brother, and put in a good word for me in English.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and the South Marion Citizen.

Do not use any other word processing programs. Usually news releases from politicians are things that editors and reporters open, casually read, then hit the delete button. Most of them are selfserving and cover items that, frankly, no one outside of government cares about. Thats usually our attitude, too. However, what follows is from a news release that really started us thinking. While there are so many things to be taken care of when a loved one dies, dealing with their digital assets is something most do not plan for. What happens to your digital assets, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, cloud databases, e-mail, and online financial accounts? These accounts contain much information but cannot be accessed without user IDs and passwords and legally should only be accessed by the original user of the account. Family and friends are breaking the law if they access these accounts even just to save family photos or e-mails. Worse yet, some with ID and password information can compromise accounts or post inappropriate information to social media. Senator Dorothy L. Hukill (R-Port Orange) is filing legislation for the 2015 legislative session that will address these issues by providing access and control of these digital assets to the personal representative of the estate. The personal representative can then obtain information necessary to handle the deceaseds final affairs. Furthermore, the legislation will provide similar authority for a trustee, guardian or agent. Account administrators are now often faced with competing requests for access while attempting to develop oftentimes competing policies to protect the deceaseds digital assets. While some of these accounts might be of actual monetary value such as online investments or bank accounts, there are other accounts that hold items of priceless value as family photos. Being able to access these irreplaceable digital assets is important to the loved ones left behind. As we become more dependent on technology in our lives from social media to paying our bills online, it is important to consider who will be able to access these accounts, said Senator Hukill, this is an increasingly important aspect of estate planning. Thats the end of the news release, and we have to confess that we are among those who never considered that eventuality. So while Hukills bill takes care of the legal problems, its definitely a reminder that we should prepare for such a situation. You dont want to leave passwords, etc., in a public place where anyone who walks into your computer room can see them, but it is wise to write them down and file them somewhere, then tell your spouse, partner or closest relative where they can be found. That can make it easy for your loved ones to access the accounts and save for themselves anything of value. We thank Hukill for coming up with this bill, and we urge passage by the Legislature in the next session. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Answer: advertising, advertising, and advertising. In short, by advertising so much that listeners cant stand it anymore and (in some cases) the station folds and starts playing country music. And when that happens, the lights go out on conservative talk-radio. We may be watching a collective conservative suicide on talk-radio. No wonder liberals are happy.Dr. Paul Kengor is professor of political science and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College. His latest book is 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. His other books include The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obamas Mentor and Dupes: How Americas Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. RADIOCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Voting rightsEvery American has the right to vote and should take this right seriously. In our history people have died to protect our voting privilege and it is a privilege to be able to elect your choice for political office. In many foreign countries these voting rights have been taken away leaving the population at the will of the dynasty who controls their future. On the opposite side of this issue there are countries that vote with 80 percent or 90 percent of their population taking advantage of being able to control their future. Its hard to believe that in America people just dont care enough about their country to get involved. Why dont they care about their future and their childrens future? Have these people just given up on life that they dont realize how important elections are on the local, state and national level? It is unbelievably easy to vote in Florida with many options available to the residents to vote. I dont believe in the excuse that I didnt have time to get to polls or I had to work on election day. Voting times and locations are published in every local newspaper and if you choose you can vote by absentee ballot. This option gives you the time to study each issue on the ballot and each person running for the various offices before you make your choice. For those who care, please do the right thing and vote! Jerry Segovis OcalaContaining deadly diseasesU.S., state, and municipal health authorities are working overtime and spending millions of dollars to stem the spread of Ebola, which has killed just one person here. Where is the comparable effort to stem the spread of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases that kill 1.4 million Americans annually and are linked conclusively to excessive consumption of animal products? According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, thats 23 times the number killed by all infectious diseases combined, including AIDS, hepatitis, blood poisoning, and intestinal infections! Apparently, our society tolerates this massive assault on our public health, because meat, dairy, and egg products have powerful champions in Congress. Bacteria and viruses have none. Yet, each of us can take personal responsibility for our own and our familys health by reducing, then dropping animal products from our menu. Fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains contain all the nutrients our body requires and are touted by leading health authorities. Soy and nutbased meats, milks, and ice creams offer a delicious transition treat. Lots of websites provide helpful transition tips. Richard Fournier Ocala Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Yesterday was National Boss Day, a day when employees honor their bosses with a greeting card, gift, or some other token of appreciation. Its meant to be a fun day for both bosses and employees. Our travel down Pun Alley shows that the rest of the year can be different.Helpful bossSmith went to see his supervisor in the front office. Boss, he said, were doing some heavy house-cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff. Were short-handed, Smith the boss replied. I cant give you the day off. Thanks, boss, said Smith. I knew I could count on you!CompetitionTom walked into his bosss office. Sir, I know the economy isnt great; but I have three companies after me, and I would like to respectfully ask for a raise. After a few minutes of haggling the boss finally agreed to a 5 percent raise, and Tom got up to leave. By the way, asked the boss, which three companies are after you? The electric company, water company, and phone company, Tom replied.Just rewardA boss of a computer company walked up to one of his workers. Youre fired! exclaimed the boss. I didnt do anything! replied the confused worker. The boss with his answer said, I know. Thats why youre fired.TypicalBoss to his assistant, I didnt say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame it on you. The boss frequently gets lost in thought. Thats because its unfamiliar territory. Theme at a recent meeting: We are going to continue having these meetings, everyday, until I find out why no work is getting done. A direct quote from the Boss: We passed over a lot of good people to get the ones we hired. The boss said, What you see as a glass ceiling, I see as a protective barrier. People always say that hard work never killed anybody. Oh yeah? Whens the last time you ever heard of anyone who had rested to death? If at first you dont succeed, try management. I thought my boss was an idiot, and quit, to work for myself. My new boss is an idiot, too; but at least I respect him. A good boss is one who makes a raise effective as soon as the employee is. The boss has given automobile accident victims new hope for recovery. He walks, talks and performs rudimentary tasks, all without the benefit of a spine. Some people climb the ladder of success. Johns boss walked under it. Being punctual in the office was of no benefit at all. There was never anybody around to appreciate it.New secretaryWell, my dear, said the boss who had married his secretary, I must get Time to honor your boss on Pun Alley Pun Alley Dick Frank someone to replace you at the office. Ive been thinking of that, replied the bride. My cousin is just leaving school. Whats her name? George Thomas, said the bride.So trueDid you ever notice the people who complain the most about not having enough time to do all their work are the same ones who always stop and tell everyone that they dont have enough time to do all their work.His own bossA man finally achieved the goal of a lifetime. He became the boss of his own company. Asked if it was all hed expected it to be, he said, Let me put it this way. The building code tells me what kind of plant to put up. The union tells me what the salaries and the hours should be. The government makes me deduct from paychecks. My salesmen tell me what they can sell and what I should make. And on top of that, last month I got married. WaitIm sorry the boss isnt in, the clerk said to the pompous individual who had strutted in. Is there anything I can do for you? No, snapped the visitor. I never deal with underlings. Ill wait until the boss returns. About an hour later the pompous one became impatient. How much longer do you think he will be? he demanded. About a week, the clerk said. He just left on his vacation. Thats the end of Pun Alley for today. If youre looking for more, youll have to wait until next week.

She can be reached by dropping a note in the mail slot at the clubhouse. Spruce Creek North Jan Liberio THE NARROW ROAD TO THE DEEP NORTH By Richard Flanagan This is a deeply disturbing novel that describes episodes of vicious brutality and atrocity during imperial Japans construction of the Siam-Burma Death Railway in the early 1940s. At that time and in that place Australian Dr. Dorrigo Evans found himself in charge of 700 sickly prisoners he held, nursed, cajoled, begged, hoodwinked and organized into surviving, whose needs he always put before his own. The unspeakable conditions in the camp where prisoners were starved and beaten with bamboo poles to a bloody mush makes the gauzy, romanticized movie Bridge Over the River Kwai an outrageous lie. Author Flanagan knew this was a book he had to write because his father survived the Death Railway where 12,000 allies perished on a futile project that could not win the war for the Japanese. Early in the novel an aging Evans is writing an introduction to a book of sketches by a prisoner in the camp that was smuggled out at wars end. The task evokes memories he has tried for a lifetime to shed. He cannot erase being ordered to select workers from among the sickmen like a muddy bundled of sticks, suffering from cholera, their ulcer-covered bodies rotting away. This is stomach-churning stuff that had me glancing away from some of the most gruesome passages. So why read such horror? Because this is a love story, not the thin romance Evans has with his uncles wife, but his love for his fellow soldiers. Through every blistering nightmare the Japanese can hurl at them, that love endures. What else sets the book apart from other war memoirs is Flanagans probing of the Japanese and Korean guards points of view. Without giving them a pass for their cruelty, he pulls us into the minds of men raised on emperor worship that made systemized brutality a necessity for their cause. This is a challenging work for those who want more than entertainment in their reading.

Friday, October 17, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, October 17, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You could be caught in a torrent of advice from well-meaning friends and colleagues this week. But remember, Lamb, you are at your best when you are your own inimitable self. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Expect strong efforts to get you to accept things as they are and not question them. But ignore all that and continue your inquiries until youre sure you have all the answers you need. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Heavier than usual family and workplace duties compete for your time this week. Try to strike a balance so that youre not overwhelmed by either. Pressures ease by weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its a good time for the Moon Child to show off your uniquely inspired approach to the culinary skills especially if theyre directed toward impressing someone special. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might be happy about the re-emergence of a long-deferred deal. But dont pounce on it quite yet. Time can change things. Be sure the values you looked for before are still there. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Try to rein in your critical attitude, even if things arent being done quite as you would prefer. Remember: What you say now could create an awkward situation later on. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you can expect on-the-job cooperation from most of your colleagues this week, some people might insist on knowing more about your plans before they can accept them. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Creating another way to do things is commendable. But you could find some resistance this week from folks who would rather stick with the tried-and-true than try something new. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You usually can keep your aim focused on your goal. But you might need to make adjustments to cope with unsteadiness factors that could arise over the course of the week. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) News arrives about a projected move. Be prepared to deal with a series of possible shifts, including starting and finishing times, and how much the budget will actually cover. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new relationship needs time to develop. Let things flow naturally. It could be a different story with a workplace situation, which might require faster and more focused attention. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Accept a compliment without trying to troll for any hidden reason beyond what was said. The week was going quite well until I ran into Ms. PC. I know a thing or two about language and words, but I still am flabbergasted when it comes to the latest PC. I think somebody ought to do a weekly update on this aspect for us who are not up to date. I do not make any apologies, but I am from the generation that believes in being a gentleman. I know that does not fit well into todays society, but I am rather hesitant to change this aspect of my life. My father and even my grandfather instilled in me that I needed to be a gentleman at all times. It has been rough down through the years, but I have tried to maintain my gentlemans status through life. Then I ran into Ms. PC. I am not quite sure where these people come from but I know where I would like to send them; as far from me as possible! I was about to enter a store and as I opened the door, I noticed a lady behind me. This is where my gentleman DNA kicks in. I opened the door, turned to the lady behind me, and said, After you, Ms. As I said it, I smiled and nodded my head. That is, she said in a very angry voice, the most sexist thing I have seen all week. How dare you? Not only was I blindsided by these remarks, but I was dumbfounded. Excuse me, maam, I said as apologetically as possible. There you go again, she glared, with more of your sexist comments. Not knowing what she was talking about I just looked at her while holding the door for her. I suppose you think you are better than me, she queried. Where you get the idea that you are better than I because you are a man I will never know. I am just holding the door open for you, maam, I explained. There you are again thinking you are better than I am because I am a woman. Where have you been all your life? Dont you know that men and women are exactly the same? Now I was confused. I did not know who I was talking to or rather I should say, who was talking to me. I did not understand what she was saying. I was just trying to be a gentleman. I thought I would try to explain it to her. Mistake! Maam, I began, and then she interrupted me. Dont you dare call me maam again. I am nobodys maam! Now I did not know what to do. Should I walk into the store and shut the door behind me? Or, should I just shut the door and walk away? At this point, no matter what I did would have been wrong. I am just trying to be a gentleman. Thats all. I dont mean any disrespect. I thought it would at least ease the tension in this situation, but I was mistaken. That is the problem with people like you. You want me to believe that you are a gentleman and I dont believe it. This world does not need any gentlemen I will tell you that right here and now. To say I was a little irritated is to grossly understate the situation. Then I noticed something on the door. On the inside of the door was a lock so the door could be locked from the inside. I do not know what come over me, but I am not responsible for the irritation level I was at at the time. I turned away from the lady, walked into the store, pulled the door shut behind me, flipped the lock and walked away. Out of the corner of my eye I could see that this woman had stepped up to the door and was rapping on the door, all the time her mouth was going a mile a minute. Thankfully, I could not hear a word she was saying. Since she does not need a gentleman, she did not need me. For a brief moment, I felt a little guilty about my shenanigans. I have never done anything that outrageous before in my life. Sometimes a gentleman needs to show a lady that being a gentleman is a good thing. I will continue to be a gentleman and I hope this little incident is a rare exception. Today people make it rather hard for other people to exercise politeness. In our politically correct society nobody knows what is good or what is bad. The aforementioned lady, and I know she would not want me to call her a lady, and for all practical purposes she was not, has no idea the difference between a man and a woman. Evidently, she has never been married. If men and women are exactly the same without any difference, why then, are there men and women? Those who do not believe that there is any difference have been sold a bill of goods by some slick shyster who is making them look foolish. The Bible says, Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). My standard of behavior is not set by the people around me, but by the Word of God that is within me. Hard to be a gentleman in todays world Out to Pastor Rev.

This outing is sponsored by Norman and is always an elegant and enjoyable time for all. You can reserve your place at the table by calling Bill Mahar at 873-1341. Cherrywood News: Good showing for Ladies Luncheon A 'curious' discoveryCuriosity may have killed the cat, but can it improve the mental acuity of seniors, asks the Association of Mature American Citizens. One scientific journal, Neuron, reports that our natural interest in a topic may stimulate our memory, particularly as we grow older. Test participants "showed improved memory for information that they were curious about and for incidental material learned during states of high curiosity," researchers concluded. Another article published in the American Medical Association's journal, Neurology, recently reported that what it calls "intellectual enrichment" can fend off the onset of dementia for as much as nine years as we grow older. In other words, the more you seek opportunities to learn and stimulate your brain, the more likely you are to improve brain function, particularly as it relates to memory. 000JFCA 4511 SW 48th Avenue, Ocala, FL 34474 352-304-6433 Assisted, Independent and Memory Care Come by for a visit!

I look forward to his coming home this week. My little story regarding the gecko brought me many calls. Isnt it interesting that such a simple thing about a gecko riding on your hood brought so many smiles. I need to fess up that when my friends questioned me I did tell them the whole story that I almost went back to the Orchid Club to get him off of the hood there because that might be where he was from and they wondered why I did not mention that goofy thought in my column. Well, why would I want all my readers think I was goofy? I did get to see Hello Dolly and I wondered if others enjoyed it as much as I did. So I asked some of those attending and got the following comments and permission to use them: Robert and Tammy Banks, daughter Aysia (family members of the Veales excellent, very good job; Henry and Trudy Kleitsch great job; Sandy Wolfe adorable, love the set, great job; Richard and Della Baumgarten outstanding production, really enjoyed. I think it is great, Oak Run residents supporting those who put so much effort into something they love to entertain others. As I always say build others up or hush up. Next week look for a bit of history of our area. Now to the happenings for all to enjoy!

This seasons production of Hello, Dolly! was a smash hit. Weve seen such enthusiasm for this show and I think its a sign of an ever-strengthening theater support group at Oak Run. The facilities we have to use, courtesy of our management company, DECCA, and our fellow residents, is second to none in community theater out our way, comments Marlena Yaich, Company Second Vice President. I think the best part of the show was when the performances were concluded and the audience was invited to sing along with us, comments Teresa Claypool, cast member. Indeed, the turnout was strong and we had some high praise as our friends, acquaintances and neighbors left the shows. Sometimes the practice schedule is cumbersome, but when it all finally comes together, its such fun, comments Dick Caza, Company President.

Twenty two players comprised the USA team vs. 22 designated as the European team. The first day two-man teams competed in an alternate shot format. PLEASESEEOAK RUN, PAGE16 BY PATRICIA A. WOODBURY Special to the CitizenYuri Lopez is an adult woman now but she remembers when she was 6 years old living in an orphanage in Honduras. There were many children there with few things that they could call their own. But one day a helicopter landed in their rock studded soccer field and delivered some huge boxes. Each orphan received from those huge boxes a shoebox with lots of little gifts. Yuri remembers the excitement that this brought to the children, who now had something, they could call their own. Yuri particularly remembers, in her box, the photograph of the girl who packed the box and the letter that accompanied it. When Yuri was feeling sad and forgotten, that photograph and those words in the letter gave her hope. Operation Christmas Child is the largest evangelical mission for children worldwide in which 100 million shoeboxes have been distributed with the help of thousands of volunteers. This project is under the auspices of Samaritans Purse. Samaritans Purse is a nondenominational Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritans Purse has helped meet the needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine with the purpose of sharing Gods love. Since 1978 Franklin Graham, President and Chairman of the Board of Samaritans Purse, with Gods blessing has seen explosive growth in this ministry. The organization is encouraging churches, families, business and civic groups to consider packing the shoeboxes for children (boys and girls) ages two years to 14 years with toys, school supplies, clothes and hygiene items. They are also asking that a check for $7, made out to Samaritans Purse, be placed in the box to cover processing and shipping of the box. Last year Marion County in cooperation with Citrus County shipped 17,814 Christmas Child boxes. Their goal this year is to ship 21,400 shoe boxes. Contributions to the ministry are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Joy Lutheran Church, under the leadership of Kathy Hoefer who is coordinating this effort. said that last year Joy donated 82 boxes. Kathy hopes, through the donations of the church members to exceed this amount this year. She also has been working closely with Mary Ann Curry at Ocala West Methodist church who is coordinating this effort at her church, which is also a relay station for collecting these boxes. Kathy said that she has some of the red-green boxes but that you can also use an inexpensive plastic shoebox from Walmart or the Dollar Store.

I look forward to his coming home this week. My little story regarding the gecko brought me many calls. Isnt it interesting that such a simple thing about a gecko riding on your hood brought so many smiles. I need to fess up that when my friends questioned me I did tell them the whole story that I almost went back to the Orchid Club to get him off of the hood there because that might be where he was from and they wondered why I did not mention that goofy thought in my column. Well, why would I want all my readers think I was goofy? I did get to see Hello Dolly and I wondered if others enjoyed it as much as I did. So I asked some of those attending and got the following comments and permission to use them: Robert and Tammy Banks, daughter Aysia (family members of the Veales excellent, very good job; Henry and Trudy Kleitsch great job; Sandy Wolfe adorable, love the set, great job; Richard and Della Baumgarten outstanding production, really enjoyed. I think it is great, Oak Run residents supporting those who put so much effort into something they love to entertain others. As I always say build others up or hush up.

Cherrywood News: Good showing for Ladies Luncheon A 'curious' discoveryCuriosity may have killed the cat, but can it improve the mental acuity of seniors, asks the Association of Mature American Citizens. One scientific journal, Neuron, reports that our natural interest in a topic may stimulate our memory, particularly as we grow older. Test participants "showed improved memory for information that they were curious about and for incidental material learned during states of high curiosity," researchers concluded. Another article published in the American Medical Association's journal, Neurology, recently reported that what it calls "intellectual enrichment" can fend off the onset of dementia for as much as nine years as we grow older. In other words, the more you seek opportunities to learn and stimulate your brain, the more likely you are to improve brain function, particularly as it relates to memory. 000JFCA 4511 SW 48th Avenue, Ocala, FL 34474 352-304-6433 Assisted, Independent and Memory Care Come by for a visit!

Friday, October 17, 2014 ~ 11 www.smcitizen.com 18~ Friday, October 17, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You could be caught in a torrent of advice from well-meaning friends and colleagues this week. But remember, Lamb, you are at your best when you are your own inimitable self. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Expect strong efforts to get you to accept things as they are and not question them. But ignore all that and continue your inquiries until youre sure you have all the answers you need. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Heavier than usual family and workplace duties compete for your time this week. Try to strike a balance so that youre not overwhelmed by either. Pressures ease by weeks end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its a good time for the Moon Child to show off your uniquely inspired approach to the culinary skills especially if theyre directed toward impressing someone special. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might be happy about the re-emergence of a long-deferred deal. But dont pounce on it quite yet. Time can change things. Be sure the values you looked for before are still there. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Try to rein in your critical attitude, even if things arent being done quite as you would prefer. Remember: What you say now could create an awkward situation later on. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you can expect on-the-job cooperation from most of your colleagues this week, some people might insist on knowing more about your plans before they can accept them. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Creating another way to do things is commendable. But you could find some resistance this week from folks who would rather stick with the tried-and-true than try something new. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You usually can keep your aim focused on your goal. But you might need to make adjustments to cope with unsteadiness factors that could arise over the course of the week. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) News arrives about a projected move. Be prepared to deal with a series of possible shifts, including starting and finishing times, and how much the budget will actually cover. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A new relationship needs time to develop. Let things flow naturally. It could be a different story with a workplace situation, which might require faster and more focused attention. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Accept a compliment without trying to troll for any hidden reason beyond what was said. The week was going quite well until I ran into Ms. PC. I know a thing or two about language and words, but I still am flabbergasted when it comes to the latest PC. I think somebody ought to do a weekly update on this aspect for us who are not up to date. I do not make any apologies, but I am from the generation that believes in being a gentleman. I know that does not fit well into todays society, but I am rather hesitant to change this aspect of my life. My father and even my grandfather instilled in me that I needed to be a gentleman at all times. It has been rough down through the years, but I have tried to maintain my gentlemans status through life. Then I ran into Ms. PC. I am not quite sure where these people come from but I know where I would like to send them; as far from me as possible! I was about to enter a store and as I opened the door, I noticed a lady behind me. This is where my gentleman DNA kicks in. I opened the door, turned to the lady behind me, and said, After you, Ms. As I said it, I smiled and nodded my head. That is, she said in a very angry voice, the most sexist thing I have seen all week. How dare you? Not only was I blindsided by these remarks, but I was dumbfounded. Excuse me, maam, I said as apologetically as possible. There you go again, she glared, with more of your sexist comments. Not knowing what she was talking about I just looked at her while holding the door for her. I suppose you think you are better than me, she queried. Where you get the idea that you are better than I because you are a man I will never know. I am just holding the door open for you, maam, I explained. There you are again thinking you are better than I am because I am a woman. Where have you been all your life? Dont you know that men and women are exactly the same? Now I was confused. I did not know who I was talking to or rather I should say, who was talking to me. I did not understand what she was saying. I was just trying to be a gentleman. I thought I would try to explain it to her. Mistake! Maam, I began, and then she interrupted me. Dont you dare call me maam again. I am nobodys maam! Now I did not know what to do. Should I walk into the store and shut the door behind me? Or, should I just shut the door and walk away? At this point, no matter what I did would have been wrong. I am just trying to be a gentleman. Thats all. I dont mean any disrespect. I thought it would at least ease the tension in this situation, but I was mistaken. That is the problem with people like you. You want me to believe that you are a gentleman and I dont believe it. This world does not need any gentlemen I will tell you that right here and now. To say I was a little irritated is to grossly understate the situation. Then I noticed something on the door. On the inside of the door was a lock so the door could be locked from the inside. I do not know what come over me, but I am not responsible for the irritation level I was at at the time. I turned away from the lady, walked into the store, pulled the door shut behind me, flipped the lock and walked away. Out of the corner of my eye I could see that this woman had stepped up to the door and was rapping on the door, all the time her mouth was going a mile a minute. Thankfully, I could not hear a word she was saying. Since she does not need a gentleman, she did not need me. For a brief moment, I felt a little guilty about my shenanigans. I have never done anything that outrageous before in my life. Sometimes a gentleman needs to show a lady that being a gentleman is a good thing. I will continue to be a gentleman and I hope this little incident is a rare exception. Today people make it rather hard for other people to exercise politeness. In our politically correct society nobody knows what is good or what is bad. The aforementioned lady, and I know she would not want me to call her a lady, and for all practical purposes she was not, has no idea the difference between a man and a woman. Evidently, she has never been married. If men and women are exactly the same without any difference, why then, are there men and women? Those who do not believe that there is any difference have been sold a bill of goods by some slick shyster who is making them look foolish. The Bible says, Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4). My standard of behavior is not set by the people around me, but by the Word of God that is within me. Hard to be a gentleman in todays world Out to Pastor Rev.

She can be reached by dropping a note in the mail slot at the clubhouse. Spruce Creek North Jan Liberio THE NARROW ROAD TO THE DEEP NORTH By Richard Flanagan This is a deeply disturbing novel that describes episodes of vicious brutality and atrocity during imperial Japans construction of the Siam-Burma Death Railway in the early 1940s. At that time and in that place Australian Dr. Dorrigo Evans found himself in charge of 700 sickly prisoners he held, nursed, cajoled, begged, hoodwinked and organized into surviving, whose needs he always put before his own. The unspeakable conditions in the camp where prisoners were starved and beaten with bamboo poles to a bloody mush makes the gauzy, romanticized movie Bridge Over the River Kwai an outrageous lie. Author Flanagan knew this was a book he had to write because his father survived the Death Railway where 12,000 allies perished on a futile project that could not win the war for the Japanese. Early in the novel an aging Evans is writing an introduction to a book of sketches by a prisoner in the camp that was smuggled out at wars end. The task evokes memories he has tried for a lifetime to shed. He cannot erase being ordered to select workers from among the sickmen like a muddy bundled of sticks, suffering from cholera, their ulcer-covered bodies rotting away. This is stomach-churning stuff that had me glancing away from some of the most gruesome passages. So why read such horror? Because this is a love story, not the thin romance Evans has with his uncles wife, but his love for his fellow soldiers. Through every blistering nightmare the Japanese can hurl at them, that love endures. What else sets the book apart from other war memoirs is Flanagans probing of the Japanese and Korean guards points of view. Without giving them a pass for their cruelty, he pulls us into the minds of men raised on emperor worship that made systemized brutality a necessity for their cause. This is a challenging work for those who want more than entertainment in their reading.

Answer: advertising, advertising, and advertising. In short, by advertising so much that listeners cant stand it anymore and (in some cases) the station folds and starts playing country music. And when that happens, the lights go out on conservative talk-radio. We may be watching a collective conservative suicide on talk-radio. No wonder liberals are happy.Dr. Paul Kengor is professor of political science and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College. His latest book is 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. His other books include The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obamas Mentor and Dupes: How Americas Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century. RADIOCONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Voting rightsEvery American has the right to vote and should take this right seriously. In our history people have died to protect our voting privilege and it is a privilege to be able to elect your choice for political office. In many foreign countries these voting rights have been taken away leaving the population at the will of the dynasty who controls their future. On the opposite side of this issue there are countries that vote with 80 percent or 90 percent of their population taking advantage of being able to control their future. Its hard to believe that in America people just dont care enough about their country to get involved. Why dont they care about their future and their childrens future? Have these people just given up on life that they dont realize how important elections are on the local, state and national level? It is unbelievably easy to vote in Florida with many options available to the residents to vote. I dont believe in the excuse that I didnt have time to get to polls or I had to work on election day. Voting times and locations are published in every local newspaper and if you choose you can vote by absentee ballot. This option gives you the time to study each issue on the ballot and each person running for the various offices before you make your choice. For those who care, please do the right thing and vote! Jerry Segovis OcalaContaining deadly diseasesU.S., state, and municipal health authorities are working overtime and spending millions of dollars to stem the spread of Ebola, which has killed just one person here. Where is the comparable effort to stem the spread of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and other chronic diseases that kill 1.4 million Americans annually and are linked conclusively to excessive consumption of animal products? According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, thats 23 times the number killed by all infectious diseases combined, including AIDS, hepatitis, blood poisoning, and intestinal infections! Apparently, our society tolerates this massive assault on our public health, because meat, dairy, and egg products have powerful champions in Congress. Bacteria and viruses have none. Yet, each of us can take personal responsibility for our own and our familys health by reducing, then dropping animal products from our menu. Fresh vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains contain all the nutrients our body requires and are touted by leading health authorities. Soy and nutbased meats, milks, and ice creams offer a delicious transition treat. Lots of websites provide helpful transition tips. Richard Fournier Ocala Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com Yesterday was National Boss Day, a day when employees honor their bosses with a greeting card, gift, or some other token of appreciation. Its meant to be a fun day for both bosses and employees. Our travel down Pun Alley shows that the rest of the year can be different.Helpful bossSmith went to see his supervisor in the front office. Boss, he said, were doing some heavy house-cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff. Were short-handed, Smith the boss replied. I cant give you the day off. Thanks, boss, said Smith. I knew I could count on you!CompetitionTom walked into his bosss office. Sir, I know the economy isnt great; but I have three companies after me, and I would like to respectfully ask for a raise. After a few minutes of haggling the boss finally agreed to a 5 percent raise, and Tom got up to leave. By the way, asked the boss, which three companies are after you? The electric company, water company, and phone company, Tom replied.Just rewardA boss of a computer company walked up to one of his workers. Youre fired! exclaimed the boss. I didnt do anything! replied the confused worker. The boss with his answer said, I know. Thats why youre fired.TypicalBoss to his assistant, I didnt say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame it on you. The boss frequently gets lost in thought. Thats because its unfamiliar territory. Theme at a recent meeting: We are going to continue having these meetings, everyday, until I find out why no work is getting done. A direct quote from the Boss: We passed over a lot of good people to get the ones we hired. The boss said, What you see as a glass ceiling, I see as a protective barrier. People always say that hard work never killed anybody. Oh yeah? Whens the last time you ever heard of anyone who had rested to death? If at first you dont succeed, try management. I thought my boss was an idiot, and quit, to work for myself. My new boss is an idiot, too; but at least I respect him. A good boss is one who makes a raise effective as soon as the employee is. The boss has given automobile accident victims new hope for recovery. He walks, talks and performs rudimentary tasks, all without the benefit of a spine. Some people climb the ladder of success. Johns boss walked under it. Being punctual in the office was of no benefit at all. There was never anybody around to appreciate it.New secretaryWell, my dear, said the boss who had married his secretary, I must get Time to honor your boss on Pun Alley Pun Alley Dick Frank someone to replace you at the office. Ive been thinking of that, replied the bride. My cousin is just leaving school. Whats her name? George Thomas, said the bride.So trueDid you ever notice the people who complain the most about not having enough time to do all their work are the same ones who always stop and tell everyone that they dont have enough time to do all their work.His own bossA man finally achieved the goal of a lifetime. He became the boss of his own company. Asked if it was all hed expected it to be, he said, Let me put it this way. The building code tells me what kind of plant to put up. The union tells me what the salaries and the hours should be. The government makes me deduct from paychecks. My salesmen tell me what they can sell and what I should make. And on top of that, last month I got married. WaitIm sorry the boss isnt in, the clerk said to the pompous individual who had strutted in. Is there anything I can do for you? No, snapped the visitor. I never deal with underlings. Ill wait until the boss returns. About an hour later the pompous one became impatient. How much longer do you think he will be? he demanded. About a week, the clerk said. He just left on his vacation. Thats the end of Pun Alley for today. If youre looking for more, youll have to wait until next week.

Friday, October 17, 2014 ~ 21 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 17, 2014 BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Special to the CitizenConservative talk-radio is hurting. Liberals are gleefully circling the wagons, celebrating their adversarys imminent demise, even as conservative talk-radio remains far more popular than liberal talk-radio. Liberals think they know the reason for the decline: they believe that conservatism is on the decline, and that conservatives are so dispirited with the nations leftward drift that theyve literally tuned out. Though theres a smidgen of truth to that, it isnt the answer. In truth, the real culprit might make liberals even happier; it will fuel the class envy they thrive upon. Conservative talk-radio is in peril because of conservative greedand not because of the greed of the millions of conservative faithful whove lent their hearts and minds and ears. Its no secret whats happening. Theres simply too much advertising on conservative talk-radio. Year after year, it gets worse. Anytime I tune in, I land on a litany of commercials. Commercials, commercials, commercials. Yes, you need advertising to pay the bills, but this is way over-the-top. Its unlistenable. Consider one of the top shows in the nation in the 3-6 p.m. slot, which Ill leave nameless. I used to listen daily. Now, I occasionally check in around 5:08, when the host finally starts the hour. He provides about 14 minutes of content before going to a long break that doesnt bring him back until about 5:27. At that point, he typically says something like, Okay, when we come back. He leaves for another marathon of advertisements (and some news) that doesnt end until around 5:37. The cycle repeats through the shows end. There cant be more than 33 minutes of actual program per hour. Its obscene. Why would anyone listen to this? I recall a conversation that I had a few years back with the late Fred Honsberger, a longtime leading talk-show host in Pittsburgh. I hadnt done his talk-show on the great KDKA in a while. I asked how it was going. They fill the show with junk! he shouted at me. People tune out! Then I get blamed for the lack of listeners! I didnt have the heart to tell Fred that I was one of the people who had tuned out. Too much junk. This begs the question: Why so much junk? To pay the costs, of course. But more specifically, to pay the gigantic, unsustainable fees these shows demand. Alas, this hits home for conservatives in my local marketplace. Here, the great mega-talker in Pittsburgh, 104.7 FM, WPGB, suddenly and shockingly folded. Imagine: the station that long carried Rush, Hannity, Glenn Beck, and others one day simply pulled the plug on these conservative icons. I know the station extremely well. Ive been a guest on practically every show. Ive guest-hosted on the station. One industry insider gave me a hint as to what happened at 104.7, and its the same thing happening at other stations around the country. He told me: Clear Channel is eliminating the talk format on WPGB and flipping it to a country music format. Limbaugh and Hannity are being moved over to (another station with a much lower signal) I spoke with a media executive who is familiar with Limbaughs contract. In a market the size of Pittsburgh Limbaugh receives a monthly talent fee of $35,000. Wow. Thats over $400,000 per year just for Rush Limbaugh, at one station in Pittsburgh! And thats merely Rush. Thats unaffordable. Cant these conservatives cut costs, as they demand of big-government liberals? Of course, its a free market. Rush and other hosts are free to earn whatever they receive. But also because its a free market, their stations and listeners are free to bolt. What surprises me is the degree to which some conservative hosts are willing to let their stations and listeners bolt, even as they rake in piles of money. Im especially surprised at how these hosts are willing to allow their excellent product to be diluted and damaged by an intolerable stream of annoying advertisements. It seems to me that these conservative hostschampions of the free marketare not listening to the free market. In my local market, Rush and Hannity and Glenn Beck have lost a 50,000-watt blowtorch in favor of a vastly inferior 7,000-watt signal that will be heard by far fewer listeners. I wont begrudge Rush and Many years ago (back in the Dark Ages) when I was in high school, I took three years of Spanish. My teacher was a member of the religious order at Bergen Catholic High School, at the time called the Irish Christian Brothers. His name was Brother Michael Herman Bradley. I learned Spanish with an Irish brogue. Dont get me wrong, Im not complaining. In our senior year, we had one of the parents bake a cake at the end of the year and we honored him. Brother Bradley, a crusty old veteran, was visibly touched. We liked him and were able to be glad to show him. Unfortunately, Brother Bradley, who was laughed at for his saying once, when he was upset with us, Youre men now, kids, wouldnt have been proud of me last Friday evening. I went all over my cable television to find the debate between Charlie Crist and Rick Scott in the governors race. I found it finally, but it was in Spanish. Sadly, I understood only about one word out of every 20 or so. I found where it was supposed to be in English, online only, but I could not get it to work. So I didnt get to watch the debate. How dare Crist and Scott agree to a debate that couldnt be understood by most Floridians? That was unforgiveable to me, and shows their disdain for the people of this great state. I heard one broadcaster offer as an excuse that percent of Florida voters are Hispanic. Im sorry, but the flip side is that 86 percent of Florida voters are NOT Hispanic, yet they were shut out in favor of the 14 percent. Im all for the Hispanic voters being able to share in the debate in their own language, preferably with the SAP button, but making it hard for English-speaking American-bred people to listen to that same debate is just plain wrong. I also have to wonder why Adrian Wyllie, the Libertarian candidate for governor, is being excluded from the debates. I dont care about the polls showing what percentage of votes he would get I care about fairness. Wyllie is not some wild-eyed fringe candidate who will only get 100 votes total in the state. He will get thousands of votes this November, probably not enough to win, but enough that future candidates will have to take notice. After the way Crist and Scott shut me out of last weeks debate, Im definitely considering voting for Wyllie. People say that it will be a wasted vote, but if enough of us do that, maybe the political parties will get the message that English-speaking Floridians count, too. And finally, I have to offer an apology to Brother Bradley. Even though its been 53 years since the late brother had us open our Spanish books, I should have been able to do better. Rest in peace, Brother, and put in a good word for me in English.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and the South Marion Citizen.

Do not use any other word processing programs. Usually news releases from politicians are things that editors and reporters open, casually read, then hit the delete button. Most of them are selfserving and cover items that, frankly, no one outside of government cares about. Thats usually our attitude, too. However, what follows is from a news release that really started us thinking. While there are so many things to be taken care of when a loved one dies, dealing with their digital assets is something most do not plan for. What happens to your digital assets, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, cloud databases, e-mail, and online financial accounts? These accounts contain much information but cannot be accessed without user IDs and passwords and legally should only be accessed by the original user of the account. Family and friends are breaking the law if they access these accounts even just to save family photos or e-mails. Worse yet, some with ID and password information can compromise accounts or post inappropriate information to social media. Senator Dorothy L. Hukill (R-Port Orange) is filing legislation for the 2015 legislative session that will address these issues by providing access and control of these digital assets to the personal representative of the estate. The personal representative can then obtain information necessary to handle the deceaseds final affairs. Furthermore, the legislation will provide similar authority for a trustee, guardian or agent. Account administrators are now often faced with competing requests for access while attempting to develop oftentimes competing policies to protect the deceaseds digital assets. While some of these accounts might be of actual monetary value such as online investments or bank accounts, there are other accounts that hold items of priceless value as family photos. Being able to access these irreplaceable digital assets is important to the loved ones left behind. As we become more dependent on technology in our lives from social media to paying our bills online, it is important to consider who will be able to access these accounts, said Senator Hukill, this is an increasingly important aspect of estate planning. Thats the end of the news release, and we have to confess that we are among those who never considered that eventuality. So while Hukills bill takes care of the legal problems, its definitely a reminder that we should prepare for such a situation. You dont want to leave passwords, etc., in a public place where anyone who walks into your computer room can see them, but it is wise to write them down and file them somewhere, then tell your spouse, partner or closest relative where they can be found. That can make it easy for your loved ones to access the accounts and save for themselves anything of value. We thank Hukill for coming up with this bill, and we urge passage by the Legislature in the next session. S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

CALENDARCONTINUED FROM P AGE 3 Please use our e-mail editor@smcitizen.com PLEASESEECALENDAR, PAG E6 BY BOB FRANKEN Special to the CitizenFor the election geeks who are waiting for this years campaign October surprise, give it up. Another tradition bites the dust. For those who dont eat, sleep and breathe politics, first of all, congratulations and in case you need it, an explanation: The October surprise was the predictable startling development or scandal, timed by one side or the other to explode into public view in the last days before the election. It would dominate the headlines and be all that the voters would be thinking of as they headed to the polls. Unfortunately, the October surprise may have become obsolete. Surprises just cant wait anymore. They startle us every day of the year, certainly every month. The ISIL surprise hit about June, give or take. Thats when our intelligence operatives were suddenly amazed that a huge force, thousands of well-equipped and financed brutal Sunni fanatics, had somehow assembled without raising meaningful alarms and were marauding wherever they wanted in Iraq and Syria. Surrrpriiise! That was just after Vladimir Putin astonished our befuddled national-security folks with his invasion of Crimea. Oh, the hand-wringing that has caused. Of course, there are those sudden crises that cant fairly be blamed on incompetence or someones cynical desire to promote a candidate or agenda. Obviously, the Ebola scourge that is still spreading is a case in point. The fact that we arent confident in the assurances that it isnt contagious except by direct contact or that it can be contained here reflects a well-deserved skepticism about our various institutions, public and private, that has infected our society as a whole. Its much like the fence jumper who recently got inside the White House and has wreaked havoc with the Secret Service by exposing a lot of dirty laundry about an agency we wanted to believe was solidly heroic but apparently is as bumbling as the rest of us. Whats really become a surprise is the discovery that someone or other is fulfilling the assignment he or she was paid to do. Even the finest political manipulator couldnt have arranged for a Hurricane Sandy to spread her destruction in the days before the 2012 election. But it sure affected the results. The impression that the Obama administration was competently doing its job in the days after the storm and the fact that a Republican governor, Chris Christie, was saying so turned Mother Natures surprise into a cakewalk at the polls. On the other side of the ledger, the Bush administrations economic collapse in 2008 just before the election and the confused reaction to it from GOP candidate John McCain most likely propelled Barack Obama into the White House the first time around. So, we may be making too much of the contrived October surprise where some oh-so-clever operative creates a sensation that catapults a candidate to Election Day success. Lets face it: Most of these significant moments simply happen. The guys who pull the strings in the races are just as likely to get tangled up as the rest of us. The truth is, theres probably just one thing that we can believe in, and thats a healthy disbelief. Which, by now, is no surprise. (c) 2014 Bob Franken Distributed by King Features Synd.

Those years learning directly from one of the greatest social change agents of the last century deeply influenced Towey. During his career in politics under President George W. Bush, he served as director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. He oversaw billions of dollars in federal grants awarded annually to faith-based charities, and his bipartisan collaboration persuaded more than 30 governors to open offices to assist religious charities in their states. At Mother Teresas urging, Towey founded the Tallahassee-based Aging with Dignity, a non-profit organization that helps families plan for end-oflife care. He is the author of the advance directive, Five Wishes, which has sold more than 14 million copies. As a lawyer, Towey developed this user-friendly document as an easy-tocomprehend living will that is more specific to personal needs. Today it is the most popular form of advance directive in the U.S., is legal in 42 states and available in 27 languages, just as Mother Teresa would have wished. Towey continues to be inspired by his years with Mother Teresa. Hear from him directly on how her perspectives on compassion toward others can make a difference in everyones life. Towey is the special guest speaker on Monday, Nov. 10, 4 to 6 p.m. at Hospice of Marion County in recognition of National Hospice Month. The event in The Elliott Center (3231 SW 34th Ave., Ocala) has limited seating, so RSVP today to (352) 854-5230 or lvarner@hospiceofmarion.com. Refreshments will be served and counselors will be available to distribute free Five Wishes. Dont miss this unique opportunity.

MOTHERCONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Plaque presentedThe Friendship Volunteer Fire Department, at its October meeting, presented a plaque in grateful appreciation to Leon Meyers who donated his time and materials to treat our Grass Truck. He applied a coating to preserve and protect the paint finish on the truck, which is expected to last approximately 10 years. Shown in the picture is Ed Lanza, President of the Fire Department presenting the plaque to Leon. The Friendship Volunteer Fire Department operates on donations from the community it serves. When 68-year-old Homosassa resident Alice Dunagan went for her annual mammogram, she was concerned when the results came back suspicious. After a digital mammogram and biopsy, she learned that she had stage 1 breast cancer. My initial reaction was panic and fear, says Dunagan. Im of the generation that believed The Big C is lethal, and something to really be feared. Theyve made such great strides in treatment in the past few years and after learning all of the treatment options, my fears were quite alleviated. In October of 2013, Dunagan underwent a lumpectomy to remove the tumor and surrounding lymph nodes. After that, she was referred to 21st Century Oncology and Board Certified Radiation Oncologist Jayanth G. Rao, M.D., for radiation therapy to eradicate any remaining cancer cells. I didnt know what I was getting into with radiation because I had never experienced it before, but it was not that difficult to handle, says Dunagan. I had AccuBoost for the two weeks, then external radiation therapy afterward. The staff at Dr. Raos office made me feel as comfortable as possible, and we even became friends. I had no side effects from treatment and am very pleased with the results. Now one year since treatment, Dunagan is sharing her story for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in hopes of raising awareness for early detection and yearly mammograms. Its extremely important to get mammograms every year. In my case, there was no lump because it was deep inside. Self exams are good as well, but the mammogram will show more, and it will show any issues earlier, Dunagan says. Early diagnosis makes treatment a whole lot easier. She credits her feelings today and her outcomes to Dr. Rao and his staff who made an otherwise negative experience very comfortable.

James told the group he was at a conference in Orlando the previous month. He said he is in favor of the proposed school property tax that will also be on the ballot Nov. 4. I am in favor of that millage. We have been looking for that money for seven years. He told people that if they owned a $150,000 house the tax would cost them a Big Mac a month. He said he was a proponent of vocational education. He said he wants the board to provide a report card to the community every nine weeks to show where things stand. I believe in you, I want you to believe in me. Incumbent James says he favors ballot tax BY JIM CLARK EditorA Democratic candidate for Congress got to present his case in Marion County Monday at the State Road 200 Coalition meeting. Dave Koller, who is running against incumbent Rich Nugent, spoke to the Coalition as members gathered for their final meeting before the Nov. 4 election. Koller said he was tired of the bickering, stagnant actions and the behavior of the current Congress. The 43-year-old works with people with developmental disabilities, educating the young. He said he teaches them to be independent, and advocates for those who dont have a voice. He criticized Congress for going on vacation when there are many world problems that need immediate work. He didnt, however, criticize Nugent, but told the crowd, I would rather you vote for me and not against him. Koller blasted Congress for its inaction for veterans. We lose 22 veterans a day to suicide (in the U.S.), he said. Our VA has been brokenhas been broken and he paused to allow the crowd to answer, and he got the response he expected as some blurted out too long. He added, Im frustrated. Koller will be on the ballot for those who live in Congressional District 11. Koller makes case in race vs. Nugent PHOTO BY JIM CLARKBreast cancer awarenessPink flamingos have been making the rounds this month for breast cancer awareness during October, which is dedicated to the fight against this disease.

Lessons learned from Mother Teresa? Hear them localllyWhat has Mother Teresa got to teach us in todays world? The answer is: Plenty! Although she died in 1997, this diminutive whirlwind of devotion achieved the highest acclaim as well as derisive criticism during her lifetime of service to the poor, earning her the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Through it all she was unfaltering in her stance on compassion and dignity for the dying, no matter what their status. Her work with infants afflicted with AIDS was world-changing resulting in the creation of the Missions of Charity, which remains active in 133 countries. For 12 years beginning in 1985 until her death, Florida native Jim Towey had the good fortune to become not only legal counsel to Mother Teresa, but also a personal friend. He was a full-time volunteer for two years living with her order of priests in her Tijuana, Mexico seminary. Later he spent time caring for the dying in her hospice house for AIDS patients in Washington, DC. He was a member of the official delegation sent by the President of the United States for both her funeral in Calcutta and her 2003 beatification at St. Peters Basilica in Rome.
