Around 2:30 Friday afternoon, Marion County Sheriffs deputies responded to an armed bank robbery at CenterState Bank located at 7755 S.W. 65th Ave Road in Ocala. A white male entered the bank with a silver semi-automatic handgun and demanded money from clerks and a client inside. There were two clerks working at the front with a client when the armed man entered the bank. The clerks gave the man an undetermined amount of cash. The suspect demanded money that the client was holding. In the process of collecting the money from the clerks and the client, he accidently dropped the clients money and she recovered it. According to the surveillance video and witness statements, the suspect was a white male, about 5, medium build, wearing a ski mask, dark blue jeans, a winter coat and gloves. The robber fled on foot into a field close to the bank. Through further investigation, 28-yearold Daniel David Vermette has become a possible suspect for this robbery. If you have any information about his whereabouts, please contact Detective George Wallace at 352-843-8116 or the Marion County Crime Stoppers at 352-368-STOP. NEWS BY PAT FAHERTY Citrus County ChronicleVoters have a distinct choice in the race for the U.S. House District 11 seat, with Ocala Democrat Dave Koller challenging U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent, R-Brooksville. The two went head to head for the first time Tuesday night at the Citrus County Chronicles political forum. Nugent, seeking his third term, is the former Hernando County sheriff. Koller owns a company that trains developmentally disabled people for the workforce. This is his first run at public office. The pairs differences on issues showed quickly and each had his own verbal supporters in the audience. Nugent is running to continue a career of community service, while Koller is running out of frustration with government he does not think is working anymore. On job creation, the two took issue. Kollers view is that small businesses are folding up everywhere, and its time to invest in the American people and the nations crumbling infrastructure. My opponent does not want to raise minimum wage, said Koller. But Nugent took the position the federal government should not be setting the minimum wage he said the issue should be left to the states.. The Democratic side says one size fits everything, Nugent said. The debate took a lively turn as Nugent mentioned that Koller INDEX Bookmark..............................28 Cherrywood.........................15 Classifieds.............................30 Indigo East............................25 Marion Landing..................21 Oak Run.................................16 OTOW.....................................23 Out to Pastor..........................9 Pun Alley...............................29 Puzzles...................................20CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2014 VOLUME 19 NUMBER 20 www.smcitizen.com At around 8 a.m. Saturday, Marion County Sheriffs deputies responded to 3425 S.W. 165th Avenue Road in Ocala in reference to a residential and vehicle burglary. After further investigation, detectives arrested and charged 18year-old Zach St. Pierre and two juveniles, 15-year-old Michael Dawson and 16-year-old Alan Page with six counts of burglary and grand theft. St. Pierre and Dawson allegedly admitted the three are responsible for 80-90 burglaries in the area. Deputies made contact with the victims at 3425 SW 165th Avenue Road, who say close to $1,300 of property and cash was taken from their garage and car. Fresh shoe impressions were at the scene and deputies began canvassing the area for suspects. St. Pierre was riding his bike heading south on 165th Avenue Road. Deputies say matched his shoe prints to one of the impressions taken from the victims yard. St. Pierre said Dawson and Page were also involved and took detectives to several locations that they burglarized together. Stolen items from these residences were found at St. Pierres home and a stolen handgun was recovered at Dawsons residence. It should be noted that all three suspects footprints were exact matches to the ones found at Saturday mornings crime scene. Because of St. Pierres and Dawsons statements as to committing close to 80-90 burglaries in this area, detectives are expecting more charges to be filed against these three individuals. 32~ Friday, October 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Suspects may have committed 90 burglaries in area St. Pierre Vermette Plane, remains found in woods off 484 MARION COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE PHOTOSheriffs officials discuss the finding of a plane, with remains inside, that was missing since April. BY BUSTER THOMPSON Citrus County ChronicleAn aircraft matching the description of a plane reported missing in April was found Sunday night by a Dunnellon man walking on a trailhead inside the Halpata Tastanaki Preserve in southwest Marion County. Human remains were also found still inside the cockpit. According to a Marion County Sheriffs Office news release, the plane is believed to be the one piloted by 74-year-old Theodore Weiss of Zephyrhills and was last seen departing from Dunnellon Airport en route to the Zephyrhills Airport on Saturday, April 5. It was reported missing the following Monday. This is his plane, Marion County sheriffs spokeswoman Lauren Lettelier said.

BY MIKE WRIGHT Citrus County ChronicleINVERNESS The issues surrounding Amendment 2 were given a thorough thrashing and then some during a raucous debate Wednesday night at the Citrus County Auditorium. Orlando attorney John Morgan, the money and face behind the medical marijuana amendment, squared off with state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness. For a solid hour the men sat side by side arguing whether medical marijuana is saving grace for thousands of patients of debilitating diseases or a way for children to get a quick and easy high. The crowd of about 350 seemed pretty solid with Morgan, whose For the People law firm is known via TV ads throughout the state. And they cheered loudly when Morgan chastised Smith by saying, You cant sit up here and make $%&* up! That works in Tallahassee but it doesnt work in Citrus County.

Marion County medical examiners arrived on scene to identify the body but could not confirm if Weiss is the casualty. On Tuesday it was announced that the bones were sent to an anthropologist, and the ID could take some time. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was also on scene. The airplane found Sunday is a white Sonex experimental aircraft with a green stripe and N229P on the tail section. According to the FAA, the Fortuna-Sonex, is registered to Weiss. The aircraft was reported departing by a private pilot who did not file a flight plan from the Marion County-Dunnellon Airport to Zephyrhills Municipal Airport in Pasco County during unfavorable weather conditions, according to Aprils preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). In the same report, personnel from the Dunnellon Airport lost sight of the airplane as it flew south due to visual obstructions. Radar lost track of the aircraft as it continued south and an emergency locator was not reported to have been activated. Searchers with the Marion County, Citrus County and Hernando County sheriffs offices combed 41,000 acres of woodland beginning April 7 between Dunnellon and Zephyrhills when the plane was reported missing, but gave up the weeklong search with no results. The Halpata Tastanaki Preserve is directly south of the Dunnellon Airport in southwestern Marion County, a short distance west of State Road 200 and just north of the Citrus-Marion County border. Daryl Burns travels the preserves trails regularly and discovered the crash site when walking at the Pruitt Trailhead sometime around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday. I entered a big wooden hammock, and I as I entered the hammock I saw what I thought was a squatters camp and as I got closer I realized it was a plane, Burns said. The first thing that came to my mind was heres the plane, wheres the body? Burns was aware that a plane was reported missing six months ago in the area, but it wasnt until he found the skeletal remains that he knew it was the same plane. If the plane had been found earlier, then there wouldnt have been anybody there. So I knew, I didnt want to, but I knew there was a body inside, so I walked around the side, looked in and there he was, Burns said. I was a little scared because that is my first time seeing something like that. According to Burns, the plane was upside down and generally still intact except for extensive damage to planes front cabin and nose. When it did hit the ground, I think it hit nose first because the rotor was about five feet in front of the plane, Burns said. Burns later called 911 from the preserves entrance located off of Southwest County Road 484 and managed to flag down a Dunnellon police officer. Marion County sheriffs investigators collected vital pieces of evidence, including the GPS locator, scattered around the site. Further details on the crash will be released after a joint-preliminary report is filed by the FAA with assistance from the Sheriffs Office.

This weeks puzzle answers PLANECONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 supported a socialist tax plan. My website says nothing about socialism, responded Koller, and told Nugent he was not a leader. The topic of veterans let both candidates attack the Department of Veterans Afffairs, categorizing it as broken. Moving onto Obamacare, the dialogue fired up both the candidates and the audience. We do need to repeal Obamacare and replace it with something that works, said Nugent. Koller maintained that 10.3 million Americans now have health care who never had it before. The U.S. Postal Service was another hot topic. Its the largest employer of veterans why are we trying to trash it? asked Koller.

Instead, Morgan and Smith spent much of their time talking over each other. If voters approve the measure on the Nov. 4 ballot, doctors will be able to recommend marijuana for patients with debilitating diseases. Smith said the wording of the amendment is too vague and doesnt belong in the state Constitution. He said the Legislature this year passed a law allowing Charlottes Web, a form of marijuana that does not induce the high normally associated with the drug. Morgan, however, said the effectiveness of Charlottes Web is limited and could not help the 400,000 patients who suffer with cancer, ALS, multiple sclerosis, HIV and epilepsy. He said the amendment belongs in the state Constitution because of the Legislatures inability to do otherwise. Charlottes Web is here because I got this ball rolling, he said. Smith said he supports medical marijuana, but not in the Constitution. He also said he believes medical marijuana is dangerous for patients who can overdose on it. Morgan said that wasnt the case. When youre on your death bed, I can promise you something, Jimmie T., theyre not worried about getting high, he said. Morgan repeatedly asked Smith if he would support the amendment as a bill if it narrowed the debilitating diseases to a specific few. If this was for cancer, yes, Smith said. If this is for an end of life issue, yes. Smith said doctors could prescribe marijuana for just about anything, including back pain. Morgan said that wasnt the case. Debilitating is debilitating, he said. Everybody in this auditorium knows what debilitating is. The debate turned testy when Morgan began talking about his brother Tim, who at age 15 was in an accident that left him a quadriplegic. Morgan said the strains of marijuana such as Charlottes Web do nothing to ease his brothers discomfort. When Smith repeatedly challenged Morgan to prove that, the attorney said: You dont know what youre talking about! Youre a security guard, not a doctor. Smith said the amendment would bring marijuana into the hands of young people. This amendment allows people to go out and smoke a joint, he said. Smith said he supports a legislative form of medical marijuana, to which Morgan countered: Its like saying Im for guns, but Im not for bullets. The amendment will lead to marijuana abuse, Smith said. Youre going to have the Phillip Morris of marijuana, he said. Youre going to have the Lucky Strikes of marijuana. Morgan responded: Nobodys ever died from marijuana. Not one person in the world has ever died from marijuana. MARIJUANACONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The Marion County Agriculture Hall of Fame will celebrate National Farm City Week and its 2014 inductee during its annual banquet at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 20, at the Marion County UF/IFAS Extension Service Auditorium (2232 NE Jacksonville Road, Ocala). This years induction ceremony celebrates Mr. Franklin Walter (Frank) Smith, a third-generation watermelon producer who farmed 4,800 acres, and owned and managed cattle herds exceeding 1,200 heads in Central Florida. Smith served as president for the Marion County Cattlemens Association and director for the Florida Cattlemens Association. The seasoned Ocala Bull Sale grader also supported the Southeastern Youth Fair for 50 years. Nominations were received from Smiths peers for contributions through his achievements to Marion Countys agriculture industry. A bronze plaque showcasing Smiths photo and biography will be added to a permanent exhibit in the main lobby of the Marion County UF/IFAS Extension Service Auditorium. The exhibit recognizes 31 previous Agriculture Hall of Fame inductees. This years banquet will feature local foods prepared by Chef Kim of Street Bistro and a silent auction benefiting Marion County 4-H and Future Farmers of America. A display of event-themed photo contest entries and winners will adorn the walls featuring categories such as Best Farm Picture-Land Scene, Best Farm People/Person, and Best Farm Animal. The cost to attend is $20 per person and reservations are required by Nov. 13. Marion County UF/IFAS Extension Service created the Marion County Agriculture Hall of Fame in 2003 to recognize members of the community for advancements in Marion Countys $1.2 billion agriculture industry. For more information on the Marion County Agriculture Hall of Fame or to register, contact Marion County UF/IFAS Extension Service at 352-671-8400 or visit www.marioncountyfl.org/extensionservice. Farm City Week event will include honor to Frank Smith Smith Sunday is Mother-In-Law Day, celebrated each year on the fourth Sunday in October. A recent study found that over 50 percent of Americans consider their mother-in-law to be a true friend. These wonderful individuals, who endure the many jokes told about them, are always there for us, providing lots of love and support. Obviously, Pun Alley has to present some motherin-law laughs before Sunday, the perfect time for you to celebrate the two families that came together when you married, and the woman who raised your spouse.Yes, motherYes, mother, Ive had a hard day. Jennifer has been most difficult. I know I ought to be firmer, but it is hard. Well, you know how she is. Yes, I remember you warned me. I remember you told me that she was a vile creature who would make my life miserable and you begged me not to marry her. You were perfectly right. You want to speak with her? All right. He looked up from the telephone and called to his wife in the next room, Jennifer, your mother wants to talk to you.Relative discussionA couple drove several miles down a country road, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument, and neither wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules and pigs, the wife sarcastically asked, Relatives of yours? Yep, the husband replied, In-laws.JusticeA woman woke her husband in the middle of the night and told him, There is a burglar downstairs in the kitchen and he is eating the cake that my mother made for us. The husband said, Who shall I call, the police or an ambulance?Typical Mother-in-law quipsAdam and Eve were the happiest couple in the world because neither of them had a mother-in-law. The punishment for bigamy is two mothers-in-law. Joe really does have a soft spot for his mother-inlaw. Its out in the garden behind the garage. The difference between outlaws and in-laws is that outlaws are wanted. Tom hasnt spoken to his mother-in-law for two years. They havent quarreled. He just doesnt want to interrupt her. Behind every successful man stand a devoted wife and a surprised mother-in-law. Does it really surprise anyone that Mother-in-laws Day occurs less than one week before Halloween? Daves mother-in-law is a well-balanced person. Shes got a chip on both shoulders. Two men were in a pub. One said to the other, My mother-in-law is an angel. His friend replied, Youre lucky. Mine is still living. At the wedding reception the newly wed cannibal toasted his mother-in-law. When Kevins mother-in-law fell down a wishing well he was amazed; he never knew they worked. Wife: You hate my relatives! Husband: No, I dont! In fact, I like your mother-inlaw more than I like mine.Newlywed surpriseThe newlywed wife, Monica, said to her husband, Nick, when he returned from work, I have great news for you. Pretty soon were going to be three in this house instead of two. Nick started glowing with happiness and purred, Oh darling, Im the happiest man in the world. Monica smiled and added, Im glad that you feel that way, Nick, because tomorrow morning my mother moves in with us.Held upThe wife said, Can my mother come down for the weekend? So the husband said, Why? and she said, Well, shes been up on the roof two weeks already.King Solomons wisdomTwo women came before King Solomon, dragging between them a young man. This young man agreed to marry my daughter, said one. No! He agreed to marry my daughter, said the other. And so they haggled before the King, until he called for silence. Bring me my biggest sword, said Solomon, and I shall hew the young man in half. Each of you shall receive a half. Sounds good to me, said the first lady. But the other woman said, Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the other womans daughter marry him. The wise king did not hesitate a moment. This man must marry the first ladys daughter, he proclaimed. But she was willing to hew him in two! exclaimed the kings court. Indeed, said wise King Solomon. That shows she is the true mother-in-law.

Above, Martin takes the Chamber group on a tour of one of the new rooms. MEAN STREAK By Sandra Brown Early in Sandra Browns Mean Streak, you may think youre watching the movie Misery. Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a young pediatrician and marathon runner, is training for an upcoming race in a remote mountainous area of North Carolina when she meets with some sort of accident. When she awakes, shes injured, disoriented, and being cared for in a cabin by a strange man who wont even give her his name or return her cell phone to her or call 911. So who is he and what does he want? Its been years since I curled up with a Brown novel but this one was well worth reading because I was hooked on the first page. Initially, Emorys husband Jeff is not alarmed by her failure to call because theyd had a fight before she left. He interprets her silence as pouting until several days pass. When he does call police, he becomes the immediate suspect in her disappearance, compounded by their finding out that he was having an affair. Meanwhile, when her tall, handsome captor leaves the cabin briefly, Emory makes a feeble attempt to escape: She opened the door and called out, but the fog absorbed her voice. Hed told her the nearest town was 15 miles away and she knew she couldnt grope her way there in her condition. The book then takes twisty turns as Emory discovers that the FBI is searching for her mystery man. Brown throws in some steamy sex to warm up the wintry, isolated cabin. Could sensible Emory actually be falling in love with her kidnapper or is it just Stockholm syndrome? This is a plot-driven novel with characters just a notch above stereotypes. But the unexpected reversals will keep you turning pages even though some of the surprises are a bit of a stretch. Still, for those who like romance with their mysteries, Browns formula of woman in danger rescued by hunky guy should fill the bill.

Tuesday morning the crew at Fire Station #3 (737 SW MLK Jr.) was surprised with the delivery of their brand new apparatus to OFRs Headquarters. The new engine, which displays the red, black, and gold color scheme the department has transitioned toward, will replace the red and white engine which until today called Station #3 home. Equipped with a water tank that holds 780 gallons, pump ready to release 1250 gallons of water per minute, and all the necessary advanced life support tools first responders need, this apparatus is prepared to respond to both fire and medical calls.

Mr James is an incumbent, retired after spending most of his career administrating a broken education system, has a very good income thanks to double-dipping of the taxpayers, and has sat comfortably in his big leather chair at board meetings for seven years as the school district has death spiraled into being one of the worst in Florida. Ms. Moerlie is a young, educated businesswoman, has an inspiring life story sole support for her family since the death of her husband in 2006 and has experienced her three children attending and graduating with high honors from the county school system. I have observed Mr James in action over the past seven years and have had extensive discussions with Ms. Moerlie. If you want a candidate who tailors his position on issues to the audience he is speaking with, has flip flopped for political expedience on issues like Common Core and televised public comment at board meeting and after seven years in of fice is just now (with his job in jeopardy) of fering possible solutions to the many school system problems Bobby James is your candidate. If you want an independentminded, hard working businesswoman who isnt afraid to provide a consistent and supported position on controversial school issues Jane Moerlie is your candidate. I like to measure candidates for elected positions against the standard: Could I see myself working with them in a major business such as one Im very familiar with, Procter & Gamble? For Mr James the answer would be no. For Ms. Moerlie it would be yes. Jane Moerlie would join just a handful of local politicians who could pass my could I work with them business-skills litmus test. I encourage you to learn more about Jane Moerlie at votejanemoerlieforschoolboard.com. Im recommending Go Jane Go! for school board on November 4. Stan Hanson V ice President (Retired) Procter & Gamble, Inc. 10/6/2014 I promise to be the first school board member to volunteer one entire day monthly in a classroom as a teachers assistant. I promise to spend every tax dollar as if it was my hard earned dollar I promise to conduct meetings with parents, grandparents, teachers and churches on regular basis. Being a former Marion County School Board candidate, I would like to make of ficial my endorsement and recommendations for District 3 in the upcoming election for School Board. But before laying it out there, let me explain why its taken six weeks for me to do so. First was the need to collect my thoughts, thank those who helped me in my bid for the position, and then spend some serious time evaluating the information and experiences gathered during the eight months of speeches and campaigning with these candidates. As an experienced electrical engineer I analyzed the strengths, abilities, and possible weaknesses of each remaining candidate, evaluating their experience as well as their declared and anticipated positions on school related issues based on that experience. As an experienced classroom teacher I compared each candidates declared and inferred educational philosophy relating to the running and operation of the public school system they will be presiding over As a Republican, I had to consider whether each candidate would uphold and follow the intent of the U.S. Constitution and the Florida Constitution as each addresses the issues of public education. As an involved member of the local teachers association, I had to deliberate over each candidates management style, abilities, and attitudes regarding the most important elements of public education, our students and the classroom environment. Finally as a Christian, I had to interpret each candidates social and religious stance and tolerances, and their willingness to take a stand for what is right, not simply what is expedient or personally profitable. All things considered, I now personally endorse and recommend to all voters of Marion County Jane Moerlie for School Board District 3. Its time for a change! V ote, November 4 th 2014.

Friday, October 24, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 24, 2014 BY GEORGE TOMYN School SuperintendentIn just a few weeks, Marion County voters will decide what the future of public education looks like in our community. They will vote on a millage increase impacting property owners county-wide. I hope you will join me and vote yes. Let me explain why. This one-mill ad valorem tax increase amounts to about $75 each year for the average homeowner. Expected to raise $15 million annually, a four-year limit on the tax means it could generate $60 million total. An independent citizens group will guarantee the money is spent as promised. And you, as a resident in our community, have every right to question that committee just to make sure. The same goes for our school board members and for me as your superintendent. You may remember two years ago I did not favor a property tax proposal included as part of the primary election. I pledged that, if elected, I would closely evaluate our budget during my first year and determine if additional funds were needed. I have followed through on this promise and it is now more evident than ever that our school district needs additional revenue. My administrations first year involved major challenges a significant financial deficit thanks to a sluggish economy and lack of needed state funding and dangerously low reserves. This situation forced us to make painful choices like laying off employees and reducing programs like art, music, physical education, and library / media services. Let me be clear: I am not satisfied with our current financial situation, and I strongly believe it must be a temporary one. We must restore art, music, library, and PE programs to 100 percent. We must reduce class size and give our teachers the classroom support they need. We can do better, and we must do better. Our district has three major sources of revenue federal, state, and local. It is at the local level where this additional millage makes the most impact and where you have the most control. The millage will replenish elementary schools with their own art teachers, music teachers, and media specialists. No longer will they split instruction time between two schools. A full contingent of physical education teachers will serve our elementary schools, and class sizes will be more manageable and aligned with state requirements. Highly qualified, state-certified teachers will stay in Marion County instead of moving elsewhere. And vocational programs will grow to offer students more exposure beyond the traditional classroom. Marion County Public Schools is focused on fully preparing students for the future whether that be in college, vocational programs, technical schools, the armed forces, or entering the workforce. Unfortunately, this focus has been blurred by a common factor money. Or the lack thereof. The last decade has been difficult for Marion County Public Schools. Funding cuts topped $50 million. Dozens of support positions at both school and district levels -were eliminated. Teachers were not replaced when they retired. Other positions simply go unfilled. Our technology needs far outweigh our budget dollars, and maintaining our 7,000,000 square feet of school space happens with prayers for no major breakdowns or outages. Some people say we should cut everyone at the district level -too many administrators. In reality, For as long as I can remember, Ive had two basic policies always vote no on all amendments and always vote no on all judge retentions, unless theres a compelling reason to vote yes. First, lets take the judges. Quick now, without looking, name one appellate court judge who is up for retention. Times up. Dont worry, I cant either. These elections are always a farce. No judge has ever been rejected in Florida, even a few years ago when there were strong efforts to oust a couple of the Supreme Court judges. Thats why I vote no. Ive always been in favor of term limits for judges, even up to the U.S. Supreme Court. I feel some of them, especially the federal appointees, get a little too comfortable in their jobs. Ten years on the Supreme Court ought to be enough for anyone, and 12 years for individual federal and appeals judges is plenty. On the state level, where the retention votes take place, I feel the same way. New blood in positions such as this is always good. There are age limits in place, but a young judge could serve many, many years before that takes effect. Now, the ballot issues. Amendment 1, which is the water issue. On the surface, this seems good, but when you read what the opposition has to say, it does raise some questions about the intrusion of private interests. As usual, these amendments raise more questions than they settle. So Im voting no. Amendment 2 is the one that really scares me. I can just see some Mexican cartel member moving in next door, or some new neighbors coming in with a grow house. People tell me that kind of fear is ridiculous but I dont care. Thats what I think implementation will lead to. If you think this medical marijuana issue is going to keep pot isolated to those who need it medically, then you probably believe in the tooth fairy. The potheads among us are wringing their hands with glee, waiting for this to pass so they can go to their friendly doctor and get the OK for marijuana. Even that is open to question you dont need a prescription. I havent heard predictions on how many more DUI drivers this will put on the road. I am definitely voting no on this one. Amendment 3 is another one that should scare Floridians. It will allow governors to appoint Supreme Court justices in advance, anticipating the retirement date of someone already on the court. This might be OK normally, but what if a governor is defeated in the election by someone with an opposite political philosophy. He could appoint judges before he leaves office and before the retirement occurs, leaving his successor with a Supreme Court of a different philosophy. This is a power play by incumbents, something we see too much of in this country. Im also voting no on this one. One more, the property tax for the public schools. At the moment, Im undecided. I really wish the School Board election had been settled in August, so we know where we stand with board members. If incumbents are re-elected, I fear more of the same that weve gotten in recent years. Its obvious to me we need a change. But if we get new members, even though some of them are against this proposed tax, Id like to see them get all the help they can to turn around the school system. I probably wont make up my mind until Nov. 4. I want to see what new arguments surface in the next couple of weeks (thats why Im against early voting). Regardless of how you feel on any of these issues, the important thing is that you get out there and vote. There are some issues that are vital to the county and the state, so dont sit at home and let others decide it for you.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and the South Marion Citizen.

Later, he was made more famous by the movie All the Presidents Men, in which he was played by Jason Robards. He was the crusty yet sympathetic editor who steered Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein through the maze of Watergate started by a simple burglary and ended with the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Woodward and Bernstein were played by Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman. By 1976, when the movie hit the big screen, Woodward and Bernstein were household names, people knew who Ben Bradlee was and investigative journalism became the profession of choice for many a writer. Bradlee died this week at the age of 93. He had been suffering from Alzheimers. Although the battle to expose Watergate was probably Bradlees most enduring legacy, the Washington Post, along with the New York Times, was embroiled in another battle a couple of years early. When Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers to newsmen and the Post and Times were ready to publish them, Nixons people led the fight to keep the papers, a compilation of the history of the Vietnam War that was not favorable to the power structure in Washington, out of the news. But eventually the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to allow the publication, and Bradlee and his fellow newsmen had won his first big battle. But as important as that fight was to press freedom, it was Watergate for which he will be remembered. The years between the burglary and resignation of Nixon were a trying time for the Post and its executive editor and reporters. Many times it seemed that the nation was believing the White House and looking with disdain on the Posts reporting. But the revelation of the fact that Nixon had a secret taping system in his office and, when ordered to produce the tapes, an 18-minute gap appeared, changed the publics perception. Nixons resignation vindicated Bradlee, Woodward and Bernstein and made them all a part of journalism lore. We are glad there were leaders such as Ben Bradlee in journalism, people who werent afraid to take on the powerful and expose the wrongdoings of politicians. We thank Bradlee for his efforts in making sure his newspaper remained a watchdog in Washington. City manager firedMatthew Brower is looking for another job after the Ocala City Council, in a split vote, decided not to renew his contract when it expires on Halloween. Come to think of it, we know where theres a job opening. Marion County Administrator Dr. Lee Niblock is leaving soon to take a similar job in Alachua County. The county voted Tuesday to hire an outside firm to conduct a nationwide search. Commissioners hope to find a headhunter search firm that will do it on a contingency basis ... they dont get paid until one of their recommendations is hired. That usually means the company will go all out to get candidates who will please the county. Its not known yet how the city will conduct its search, but the same type of action is recommended. Meanwhile, two major government entities are rudderless for a while. Thats not good for all of us.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Imust confess I am not up to date with the latest technical gizmos. So much technology is around today that I believe most people have really lost their identity. I do not think they will soon recover. I am not against modern technology; I simply cannot keep up with it. I would vote for anybody who would call a moratorium on all updates for the next five years. As soon as I get a product, it is out of date and I need, desperately need, an update if I am going to benefit from this product. This brings me to the subject of the Selfie. It took me a long time to understand what this was. My clock is not always ticking. My idea of a Selfie is someone who is self-centered. How was I to know it had something to do with taking your own picture? I am not sure what to call people who take their own picture, but the modern term today is Selfie. People want to believe that they are as good as their Selfie. I do not believe that for one moment. If I am as good as my Selfie, I am in pretty bad shape. I know you can Photoshop a picture to make yourself look a lot better, but then I ask, is that really a Selfie? I think there are other ways to evaluate yourself. For me, my worth has to do with the pens I use. The Selfie that I took has no class and certainly lacks a lot of dignity. Nothing is more personal than a persons pen. I never leave home without mine. In fact, I carry on my person at all times a variety of pens. There is a pen for every activity. You can tell a lot about a person by the pen that they use. In my book, it is a fountain pen and I have a variety of them in my personal collection. When it comes to pens, I have a collection that, well, lets say it exceeds a few. I have been collecting these pens since I have been able to write. After all, a writer without a pen is not really a writer. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has the opinion that I am a wee bit obsessive about my pen collection. I remember in exasperation at my growing pen collection, she once asked, If you had to choose between me or your pens, which would you choose? As a man who has been a husband for more decades and I care to remember, certain questions that come from the other side of this marriage equation should never be answered and should be avoided at all costs. When such questions are put forth, the name of the game is switch the topic as quickly as possible. I do not want it to be, an either/or kind of a situation. I choose to keep both, which has made me happy for so many years. My idea is simply this, if something is worth writing it is worth writing with a fountain pen. You can tell a lot about a person by the pen they use and if it is a fountain pen, that tells me volumes about that person. A fountain pen is the choice of the really serious writer. I know there are all kinds of pens these days, and I have my share of them, but when it comes to serious writing, it always has to be a fountain pen. There is something about a fountain pen that makes words flow almost effortlessly. I take pride in my fountain pens and always have on my person the fountain pen for the day. Each day calls for a special fountain pen. Woe be unto the person who confuses one pen with the wrong day. After all, let us get serious about this fountain pen business. I was at the post office jotting down some notes while I was waiting in line just using and enjoying my fountain pen. The person in front of me turned around and said, Sir, could I borrow your pen for a moment? There are questions and then there are questions. I froze and simply stared at her. I like being a gentleman as much as I can but when it comes to a fountain pen I really draw the line. Fortunately, for me, I had another pen, which was not a fountain pen for such emergencies as this. Not everybody is worthy of using a fountain pen, especially my fountain pen. I do not think it is appropriate for someone to ask to borrow one of my pens! Also, on the other side of the counter, I do not borrow or use somebody elses pen. I know it may be a phobia on my part, but I am sticking to it. When I go to the counter to pay for lunch, for example, the cashier always offers one of her pens. I refuse to use a pen that has been used by a million other people. I am not a germ-a-phobic, just a pen-a-phobic. David understood this when he wrote, My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer (Psalm 45:1). A persons value is determined by what he or she values the most.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

New Theatrical GroupWe are considering a new theatrical group with a suggested name of Golden Age Productions We would propose to produce Cabaret type shows with song and dance groups. We have found from past experience that many actors cannot sing and conversely singers who cannot act. We would attempt to use chorus groups who can sing well in the shower but would not want to be a soloist. There would be a lead singer doing the solo part of our songs with the chorus joining in. We visualize dance groups performing while the vocal groups are entertaining such as you see on occasion on the Dancing With The Stars TV show. We would have a minimum of dialogue mostly between an MC and each of the performing groups, and they would be comedic in nature. In normal Theatre groups there is a lot of rehearsal time. We would attempt to greatly reduce this by giving the cast members the scripts that would contain the minimum of dialogue and musical tapes with which they could rehearse in their leisure time at home. We would have group rehearsals to put together all the acts as needed. There is much more that is different from normal theatrical shows but to lengthy to deal with here. What we are interested in learning from the public is would you like to join such a group, if so please contact me at 237-9410 or e mail me at frankdip7@centurylink.net. If there is sufficient interest an initial meeting will be called and those concerned informed of the time and place. Frank PorterfieldWell folks, another week.

Friday, October 24, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Caution dominates the Sheeps monetary aspect this week. Rams and Ewes might want to shear their big spending plans until a more favorable financial picture begins to emerge by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Thrift counts both at home and at work. So you might want to rethink major purchases or investments. Also, be wary of a so-called revelation about a previous decision. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Both household budgets and workplace accounts might benefit from some judicious trimming of unnecessary expenses. A partnership could lead to an unexpected challenge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously overlooked opportunity could re-emerge with a new travel-related matter. Check this out carefully to see if its what you really want before you decide one way or another. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This could be the start of a new career-changing phase, so start marking down your many accomplishments for those who need to know how much you have to offer. Good luck. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Its not too early for the sometimes procrastinating Virgo to start making those long-distance travel plans. The sooner you decide where to go, when to go and how to go, the better. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Financial matters once again figure in any major action you might take regarding career, travel or other endeavors. Youll want a ready reserve to help you back up those moves. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Trying to resolve a problem in a personal relationship could be more difficult than youd expected. Look into the possibility that someone might be interfering for his or her own reasons. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A project you once rejected might be more attractive because of changes that you feel you can now work with. The weekend is favorable to family matters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a good week for the gregarious Goat to enjoy being with people you care for. You might even want to show off those creative kitchen skills youre so adept at. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A colleague might think your attitude is patronizing or even outright insulting. True. That might be his or her problem. But you might want to take some reassuring steps anyway. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Its a good time to jettison those old concepts about a family matter you might have been holding on to.

Friday, October 24, 2014 ~ 13 www.smcitizen.com 20~ Friday, October 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Caution dominates the Sheeps monetary aspect this week. Rams and Ewes might want to shear their big spending plans until a more favorable financial picture begins to emerge by weeks end. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Thrift counts both at home and at work. So you might want to rethink major purchases or investments. Also, be wary of a so-called revelation about a previous decision. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Both household budgets and workplace accounts might benefit from some judicious trimming of unnecessary expenses. A partnership could lead to an unexpected challenge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A previously overlooked opportunity could re-emerge with a new travel-related matter. Check this out carefully to see if its what you really want before you decide one way or another. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This could be the start of a new career-changing phase, so start marking down your many accomplishments for those who need to know how much you have to offer. Good luck. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Its not too early for the sometimes procrastinating Virgo to start making those long-distance travel plans. The sooner you decide where to go, when to go and how to go, the better. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Financial matters once again figure in any major action you might take regarding career, travel or other endeavors. Youll want a ready reserve to help you back up those moves. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Trying to resolve a problem in a personal relationship could be more difficult than youd expected. Look into the possibility that someone might be interfering for his or her own reasons. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A project you once rejected might be more attractive because of changes that you feel you can now work with. The weekend is favorable to family matters. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a good week for the gregarious Goat to enjoy being with people you care for. You might even want to show off those creative kitchen skills youre so adept at. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A colleague might think your attitude is patronizing or even outright insulting. True. That might be his or her problem. But you might want to take some reassuring steps anyway. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Its a good time to jettison those old concepts about a family matter you might have been holding on to. Tuesday, Oct. 28 B reast cancer survivors meetThe SOS (Sisterhood of Survivors) Breast Cancer Support Group meets the last Tuesday of each month at Ocala West United Methodist Church, 9330 SW 105th St. in the Chapel, Room 235 at 1 p.m. Our meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 28, will be a presentation by Meenu Jethwani, Certified Lymphadema Therapist in Marion County.

Come and listen, really listen to this vital and essential conversation.

New Theatrical GroupWe are considering a new theatrical group with a suggested name of Golden Age Productions We would propose to produce Cabaret type shows with song and dance groups. We have found from past experience that many actors cannot sing and conversely singers who cannot act. We would attempt to use chorus groups who can sing well in the shower but would not want to be a soloist. There would be a lead singer doing the solo part of our songs with the chorus joining in. We visualize dance groups performing while the vocal groups are entertaining such as you see on occasion on the Dancing With The Stars TV show. We would have a minimum of dialogue mostly between an MC and each of the performing groups, and they would be comedic in nature. In normal Theatre groups there is a lot of rehearsal time. We would attempt to greatly reduce this by giving the cast members the scripts that would contain the minimum of dialogue and musical tapes with which they could rehearse in their leisure time at home. We would have group rehearsals to put together all the acts as needed. There is much more that is different from normal theatrical shows but to lengthy to deal with here. What we are interested in learning from the public is would you like to join such a group, if so please contact me at 237-9410 or e mail me at frankdip7@centurylink.net. If there is sufficient interest an initial meeting will be called and those concerned informed of the time and place. Frank PorterfieldWell folks, another week. Hope to see you around, stop and say hello. Keep up the smile! Laura Smith csjtpq@deccacable.com.

Imust confess I am not up to date with the latest technical gizmos. So much technology is around today that I believe most people have really lost their identity. I do not think they will soon recover. I am not against modern technology; I simply cannot keep up with it. I would vote for anybody who would call a moratorium on all updates for the next five years. As soon as I get a product, it is out of date and I need, desperately need, an update if I am going to benefit from this product. This brings me to the subject of the Selfie. It took me a long time to understand what this was. My clock is not always ticking. My idea of a Selfie is someone who is self-centered. How was I to know it had something to do with taking your own picture? I am not sure what to call people who take their own picture, but the modern term today is Selfie. People want to believe that they are as good as their Selfie. I do not believe that for one moment. If I am as good as my Selfie, I am in pretty bad shape. I know you can Photoshop a picture to make yourself look a lot better, but then I ask, is that really a Selfie? I think there are other ways to evaluate yourself. For me, my worth has to do with the pens I use. The Selfie that I took has no class and certainly lacks a lot of dignity. Nothing is more personal than a persons pen. I never leave home without mine. In fact, I carry on my person at all times a variety of pens. There is a pen for every activity. You can tell a lot about a person by the pen that they use. In my book, it is a fountain pen and I have a variety of them in my personal collection. When it comes to pens, I have a collection that, well, lets say it exceeds a few. I have been collecting these pens since I have been able to write. After all, a writer without a pen is not really a writer. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage has the opinion that I am a wee bit obsessive about my pen collection. I remember in exasperation at my growing pen collection, she once asked, If you had to choose between me or your pens, which would you choose? As a man who has been a husband for more decades and I care to remember, certain questions that come from the other side of this marriage equation should never be answered and should be avoided at all costs. When such questions are put forth, the name of the game is switch the topic as quickly as possible. I do not want it to be, an either/or kind of a situation. I choose to keep both, which has made me happy for so many years. My idea is simply this, if something is worth writing it is worth writing with a fountain pen. You can tell a lot about a person by the pen they use and if it is a fountain pen, that tells me volumes about that person. A fountain pen is the choice of the really serious writer. I know there are all kinds of pens these days, and I have my share of them, but when it comes to serious writing, it always has to be a fountain pen. There is something about a fountain pen that makes words flow almost effortlessly. I take pride in my fountain pens and always have on my person the fountain pen for the day. Each day calls for a special fountain pen. Woe be unto the person who confuses one pen with the wrong day. After all, let us get serious about this fountain pen business. I was at the post office jotting down some notes while I was waiting in line just using and enjoying my fountain pen. The person in front of me turned around and said, Sir, could I borrow your pen for a moment? There are questions and then there are questions. I froze and simply stared at her. I like being a gentleman as much as I can but when it comes to a fountain pen I really draw the line. Fortunately, for me, I had another pen, which was not a fountain pen for such emergencies as this. Not everybody is worthy of using a fountain pen, especially my fountain pen. I do not think it is appropriate for someone to ask to borrow one of my pens! Also, on the other side of the counter, I do not borrow or use somebody elses pen. I know it may be a phobia on my part, but I am sticking to it. When I go to the counter to pay for lunch, for example, the cashier always offers one of her pens. I refuse to use a pen that has been used by a million other people. I am not a germ-a-phobic, just a pen-a-phobic. David understood this when he wrote, My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer (Psalm 45:1). A persons value is determined by what he or she values the most.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Friday, October 24, 2014 ~ 25 www.smcitizen.com www.smcitizen.com 8~ Friday, October 24, 2014 BY GEORGE TOMYN School SuperintendentIn just a few weeks, Marion County voters will decide what the future of public education looks like in our community. They will vote on a millage increase impacting property owners county-wide. I hope you will join me and vote yes. Let me explain why. This one-mill ad valorem tax increase amounts to about $75 each year for the average homeowner. Expected to raise $15 million annually, a four-year limit on the tax means it could generate $60 million total. An independent citizens group will guarantee the money is spent as promised. And you, as a resident in our community, have every right to question that committee just to make sure. The same goes for our school board members and for me as your superintendent. You may remember two years ago I did not favor a property tax proposal included as part of the primary election. I pledged that, if elected, I would closely evaluate our budget during my first year and determine if additional funds were needed. I have followed through on this promise and it is now more evident than ever that our school district needs additional revenue. My administrations first year involved major challenges a significant financial deficit thanks to a sluggish economy and lack of needed state funding and dangerously low reserves. This situation forced us to make painful choices like laying off employees and reducing programs like art, music, physical education, and library / media services. Let me be clear: I am not satisfied with our current financial situation, and I strongly believe it must be a temporary one. We must restore art, music, library, and PE programs to 100 percent. We must reduce class size and give our teachers the classroom support they need. We can do better, and we must do better. Our district has three major sources of revenue federal, state, and local. It is at the local level where this additional millage makes the most impact and where you have the most control. The millage will replenish elementary schools with their own art teachers, music teachers, and media specialists. No longer will they split instruction time between two schools. A full contingent of physical education teachers will serve our elementary schools, and class sizes will be more manageable and aligned with state requirements. Highly qualified, state-certified teachers will stay in Marion County instead of moving elsewhere. And vocational programs will grow to offer students more exposure beyond the traditional classroom. Marion County Public Schools is focused on fully preparing students for the future whether that be in college, vocational programs, technical schools, the armed forces, or entering the workforce. Unfortunately, this focus has been blurred by a common factor money. Or the lack thereof. The last decade has been difficult for Marion County Public Schools. Funding cuts topped $50 million. Dozens of support positions at both school and district levels -were eliminated. Teachers were not replaced when they retired. Other positions simply go unfilled. Our technology needs far outweigh our budget dollars, and maintaining our 7,000,000 square feet of school space happens with prayers for no major breakdowns or outages. Some people say we should cut everyone at the district level -too many administrators. In reality, For as long as I can remember, Ive had two basic policies always vote no on all amendments and always vote no on all judge retentions, unless theres a compelling reason to vote yes. First, lets take the judges. Quick now, without looking, name one appellate court judge who is up for retention. Times up. Dont worry, I cant either. These elections are always a farce. No judge has ever been rejected in Florida, even a few years ago when there were strong efforts to oust a couple of the Supreme Court judges. Thats why I vote no. Ive always been in favor of term limits for judges, even up to the U.S. Supreme Court. I feel some of them, especially the federal appointees, get a little too comfortable in their jobs. Ten years on the Supreme Court ought to be enough for anyone, and 12 years for individual federal and appeals judges is plenty. On the state level, where the retention votes take place, I feel the same way. New blood in positions such as this is always good. There are age limits in place, but a young judge could serve many, many years before that takes effect. Now, the ballot issues. Amendment 1, which is the water issue. On the surface, this seems good, but when you read what the opposition has to say, it does raise some questions about the intrusion of private interests. As usual, these amendments raise more questions than they settle. So Im voting no. Amendment 2 is the one that really scares me. I can just see some Mexican cartel member moving in next door, or some new neighbors coming in with a grow house. People tell me that kind of fear is ridiculous but I dont care. Thats what I think implementation will lead to. If you think this medical marijuana issue is going to keep pot isolated to those who need it medically, then you probably believe in the tooth fairy. The potheads among us are wringing their hands with glee, waiting for this to pass so they can go to their friendly doctor and get the OK for marijuana. Even that is open to question you dont need a prescription. I havent heard predictions on how many more DUI drivers this will put on the road. I am definitely voting no on this one. Amendment 3 is another one that should scare Floridians. It will allow governors to appoint Supreme Court justices in advance, anticipating the retirement date of someone already on the court. This might be OK normally, but what if a governor is defeated in the election by someone with an opposite political philosophy. He could appoint judges before he leaves office and before the retirement occurs, leaving his successor with a Supreme Court of a different philosophy. This is a power play by incumbents, something we see too much of in this country. Im also voting no on this one. One more, the property tax for the public schools. At the moment, Im undecided. I really wish the School Board election had been settled in August, so we know where we stand with board members. If incumbents are re-elected, I fear more of the same that weve gotten in recent years. Its obvious to me we need a change. But if we get new members, even though some of them are against this proposed tax, Id like to see them get all the help they can to turn around the school system. I probably wont make up my mind until Nov. 4. I want to see what new arguments surface in the next couple of weeks (thats why Im against early voting). Regardless of how you feel on any of these issues, the important thing is that you get out there and vote. There are some issues that are vital to the county and the state, so dont sit at home and let others decide it for you.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and the South Marion Citizen.

Later, he was made more famous by the movie All the Presidents Men, in which he was played by Jason Robards. He was the crusty yet sympathetic editor who steered Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein through the maze of Watergate started by a simple burglary and ended with the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Woodward and Bernstein were played by Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman. By 1976, when the movie hit the big screen, Woodward and Bernstein were household names, people knew who Ben Bradlee was and investigative journalism became the profession of choice for many a writer. Bradlee died this week at the age of 93. He had been suffering from Alzheimers. Although the battle to expose Watergate was probably Bradlees most enduring legacy, the Washington Post, along with the New York Times, was embroiled in another battle a couple of years early. When Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers to newsmen and the Post and Times were ready to publish them, Nixons people led the fight to keep the papers, a compilation of the history of the Vietnam War that was not favorable to the power structure in Washington, out of the news. But eventually the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to allow the publication, and Bradlee and his fellow newsmen had won his first big battle. But as important as that fight was to press freedom, it was Watergate for which he will be remembered. The years between the burglary and resignation of Nixon were a trying time for the Post and its executive editor and reporters. Many times it seemed that the nation was believing the White House and looking with disdain on the Posts reporting. But the revelation of the fact that Nixon had a secret taping system in his office and, when ordered to produce the tapes, an 18-minute gap appeared, changed the publics perception. Nixons resignation vindicated Bradlee, Woodward and Bernstein and made them all a part of journalism lore. We are glad there were leaders such as Ben Bradlee in journalism, people who werent afraid to take on the powerful and expose the wrongdoings of politicians. We thank Bradlee for his efforts in making sure his newspaper remained a watchdog in Washington. City manager firedMatthew Brower is looking for another job after the Ocala City Council, in a split vote, decided not to renew his contract when it expires on Halloween. Come to think of it, we know where theres a job opening. Marion County Administrator Dr. Lee Niblock is leaving soon to take a similar job in Alachua County. The county voted Tuesday to hire an outside firm to conduct a nationwide search. Commissioners hope to find a headhunter search firm that will do it on a contingency basis ... they dont get paid until one of their recommendations is hired. That usually means the company will go all out to get candidates who will please the county. Its not known yet how the city will conduct its search, but the same type of action is recommended. Meanwhile, two major government entities are rudderless for a while. Thats not good for all of us.S UTH MARION In a free society a community newspaper must be a forum for community opinion.

Tuesday morning the crew at Fire Station #3 (737 SW MLK Jr.) was surprised with the delivery of their brand new apparatus to OFRs Headquarters. The new engine, which displays the red, black, and gold color scheme the department has transitioned toward, will replace the red and white engine which until today called Station #3 home.

Mr James is an incumbent, retired after spending most of his career administrating a broken education system, has a very good income thanks to double-dipping of the taxpayers, and has sat comfortably in his big leather chair at board meetings for seven years as the school district has death spiraled into being one of the worst in Florida. Ms. Moerlie is a young, educated businesswoman, has an inspiring life story sole support for her family since the death of her husband in 2006 and has experienced her three children attending and graduating with high honors from the county school system. I have observed Mr James in action over the past seven years and have had extensive discussions with Ms. Moerlie. If you want a candidate who tailors his position on issues to the audience he is speaking with, has flip flopped for political expedience on issues like Common Core and televised public comment at board meeting and after seven years in of fice is just now (with his job in jeopardy) of fering possible solutions to the many school system problems Bobby James is your candidate. If you want an independentminded, hard working businesswoman who isnt afraid to provide a consistent and supported position on controversial school issues Jane Moerlie is your candidate. I like to measure candidates for elected positions against the standard: Could I see myself working with them in a major business such as one Im very familiar with, Procter & Gamble? For Mr James the answer would be no. For Ms. Moerlie it would be yes. Jane Moerlie would join just a handful of local politicians who could pass my could I work with them business-skills litmus test. I encourage you to learn more about Jane Moerlie at votejanemoerlieforschoolboard.com. Im recommending Go Jane Go! for school board on November 4. Stan Hanson V ice President (Retired) Procter & Gamble, Inc. 10/6/2014 I promise to be the first school board member to volunteer one entire day monthly in a classroom as a teachers assistant. I promise to spend every tax dollar as if it was my hard earned dollar I promise to conduct meetings with parents, grandparents, teachers and churches on regular basis. Being a former Marion County School Board candidate, I would like to make of ficial my endorsement and recommendations for District 3 in the upcoming election for School Board. But before laying it out there, let me explain why its taken six weeks for me to do so. First was the need to collect my thoughts, thank those who helped me in my bid for the position, and then spend some serious time evaluating the information and experiences gathered during the eight months of speeches and campaigning with these candidates. As an experienced electrical engineer I analyzed the strengths, abilities, and possible weaknesses of each remaining candidate, evaluating their experience as well as their declared and anticipated positions on school related issues based on that experience. As an experienced classroom teacher I compared each candidates declared and inferred educational philosophy relating to the running and operation of the public school system they will be presiding over As a Republican, I had to consider whether each candidate would uphold and follow the intent of the U.S. Constitution and the Florida Constitution as each addresses the issues of public education. As an involved member of the local teachers association, I had to deliberate over each candidates management style, abilities, and attitudes regarding the most important elements of public education, our students and the classroom environment. Finally as a Christian, I had to interpret each candidates social and religious stance and tolerances, and their willingness to take a stand for what is right, not simply what is expedient or personally profitable. All things considered, I now personally endorse and recommend to all voters of Marion County Jane Moerlie for School Board District 3. Its time for a change! V ote, November 4 th 2014.

Above, Martin takes the Chamber group on a tour of one of the new rooms. MEAN STREAK By Sandra Brown Early in Sandra Browns Mean Streak, you may think youre watching the movie Misery. Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a young pediatrician and marathon runner, is training for an upcoming race in a remote mountainous area of North Carolina when she meets with some sort of accident. When she awakes, shes injured, disoriented, and being cared for in a cabin by a strange man who wont even give her his name or return her cell phone to her or call 911. So who is he and what does he want? Its been years since I curled up with a Brown novel but this one was well worth reading because I was hooked on the first page. Initially, Emorys husband Jeff is not alarmed by her failure to call because theyd had a fight before she left. He interprets her silence as pouting until several days pass. When he does call police, he becomes the immediate suspect in her disappearance, compounded by their finding out that he was having an affair. Meanwhile, when her tall, handsome captor leaves the cabin briefly, Emory makes a feeble attempt to escape: She opened the door and called out, but the fog absorbed her voice. Hed told her the nearest town was 15 miles away and she knew she couldnt grope her way there in her condition. The book then takes twisty turns as Emory discovers that the FBI is searching for her mystery man. Brown throws in some steamy sex to warm up the wintry, isolated cabin. Could sensible Emory actually be falling in love with her kidnapper or is it just Stockholm syndrome? This is a plot-driven novel with characters just a notch above stereotypes. But the unexpected reversals will keep you turning pages even though some of the surprises are a bit of a stretch. Still, for those who like romance with their mysteries, Browns formula of woman in danger rescued by hunky guy should fill the bill.

Instead, Morgan and Smith spent much of their time talking over each other. If voters approve the measure on the Nov. 4 ballot, doctors will be able to recommend marijuana for patients with debilitating diseases. Smith said the wording of the amendment is too vague and doesnt belong in the state Constitution. He said the Legislature this year passed a law allowing Charlottes Web, a form of marijuana that does not induce the high normally associated with the drug. Morgan, however, said the effectiveness of Charlottes Web is limited and could not help the 400,000 patients who suffer with cancer, ALS, multiple sclerosis, HIV and epilepsy. He said the amendment belongs in the state Constitution because of the Legislatures inability to do otherwise. Charlottes Web is here because I got this ball rolling, he said. Smith said he supports medical marijuana, but not in the Constitution. He also said he believes medical marijuana is dangerous for patients who can overdose on it. Morgan said that wasnt the case. When youre on your death bed, I can promise you something, Jimmie T., theyre not worried about getting high, he said. Morgan repeatedly asked Smith if he would support the amendment as a bill if it narrowed the debilitating diseases to a specific few. If this was for cancer, yes, Smith said. If this is for an end of life issue, yes. Smith said doctors could prescribe marijuana for just about anything, including back pain. Morgan said that wasnt the case. Debilitating is debilitating, he said. Everybody in this auditorium knows what debilitating is. The debate turned testy when Morgan began talking about his brother Tim, who at age 15 was in an accident that left him a quadriplegic. Morgan said the strains of marijuana such as Charlottes Web do nothing to ease his brothers discomfort. When Smith repeatedly challenged Morgan to prove that, the attorney said: You dont know what youre talking about! Youre a security guard, not a doctor. Smith said the amendment would bring marijuana into the hands of young people. This amendment allows people to go out and smoke a joint, he said. Smith said he supports a legislative form of medical marijuana, to which Morgan countered: Its like saying Im for guns, but Im not for bullets. The amendment will lead to marijuana abuse, Smith said. Youre going to have the Phillip Morris of marijuana, he said. Youre going to have the Lucky Strikes of marijuana. Morgan responded: Nobodys ever died from marijuana. Not one person in the world has ever died from marijuana. MARIJUANACONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The Marion County Agriculture Hall of Fame will celebrate National Farm City Week and its 2014 inductee during its annual banquet at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 20, at the Marion County UF/IFAS Extension Service Auditorium (2232 NE Jacksonville Road, Ocala). This years induction ceremony celebrates Mr. Franklin Walter (Frank) Smith, a third-generation watermelon producer who farmed 4,800 acres, and owned and managed cattle herds exceeding 1,200 heads in Central Florida. Smith served as president for the Marion County Cattlemens Association and director for the Florida Cattlemens Association. The seasoned Ocala Bull Sale grader also supported the Southeastern Youth Fair for 50 years. Nominations were received from Smiths peers for contributions through his achievements to Marion Countys agriculture industry. A bronze plaque showcasing Smiths photo and biography will be added to a permanent exhibit in the main lobby of the Marion County UF/IFAS Extension Service Auditorium. The exhibit recognizes 31 previous Agriculture Hall of Fame inductees. This years banquet will feature local foods prepared by Chef Kim of Street Bistro and a silent auction benefiting Marion County 4-H and Future Farmers of America. A display of event-themed photo contest entries and winners will adorn the walls featuring categories such as Best Farm Picture-Land Scene, Best Farm People/Person, and Best Farm Animal. The cost to attend is $20 per person and reservations are required by Nov. 13. Marion County UF/IFAS Extension Service created the Marion County Agriculture Hall of Fame in 2003 to recognize members of the community for advancements in Marion Countys $1.2 billion agriculture industry.

Farm City Week event will include honor to Frank Smith Smith Sunday is Mother-In-Law Day, celebrated each year on the fourth Sunday in October. A recent study found that over 50 percent of Americans consider their mother-in-law to be a true friend. These wonderful individuals, who endure the many jokes told about them, are always there for us, providing lots of love and support. Obviously, Pun Alley has to present some motherin-law laughs before Sunday, the perfect time for you to celebrate the two families that came together when you married, and the woman who raised your spouse.Yes, motherYes, mother, Ive had a hard day. Jennifer has been most difficult. I know I ought to be firmer, but it is hard. Well, you know how she is. Yes, I remember you warned me. I remember you told me that she was a vile creature who would make my life miserable and you begged me not to marry her. You were perfectly right. You want to speak with her? All right. He looked up from the telephone and called to his wife in the next room, Jennifer, your mother wants to talk to you.Relative discussionA couple drove several miles down a country road, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument, and neither wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules and pigs, the wife sarcastically asked, Relatives of yours? Yep, the husband replied, In-laws.JusticeA woman woke her husband in the middle of the night and told him, There is a burglar downstairs in the kitchen and he is eating the cake that my mother made for us. The husband said, Who shall I call, the police or an ambulance?Typical Mother-in-law quipsAdam and Eve were the happiest couple in the world because neither of them had a mother-in-law. The punishment for bigamy is two mothers-in-law. Joe really does have a soft spot for his mother-inlaw. Its out in the garden behind the garage. The difference between outlaws and in-laws is that outlaws are wanted. Tom hasnt spoken to his mother-in-law for two years. They havent quarreled. He just doesnt want to interrupt her. Behind every successful man stand a devoted wife and a surprised mother-in-law. Does it really surprise anyone that Mother-in-laws Day occurs less than one week before Halloween? Daves mother-in-law is a well-balanced person. Shes got a chip on both shoulders. Two men were in a pub. One said to the other, My mother-in-law is an angel. His friend replied, Youre lucky. Mine is still living. At the wedding reception the newly wed cannibal toasted his mother-in-law. When Kevins mother-in-law fell down a wishing well he was amazed; he never knew they worked. Wife: You hate my relatives! Husband: No, I dont! In fact, I like your mother-inlaw more than I like mine.Newlywed surpriseThe newlywed wife, Monica, said to her husband, Nick, when he returned from work, I have great news for you. Pretty soon were going to be three in this house instead of two. Nick started glowing with happiness and purred, Oh darling, Im the happiest man in the world. Monica smiled and added, Im glad that you feel that way, Nick, because tomorrow morning my mother moves in with us.Held upThe wife said, Can my mother come down for the weekend? So the husband said, Why? and she said, Well, shes been up on the roof two weeks already.King Solomons wisdomTwo women came before King Solomon, dragging between them a young man. This young man agreed to marry my daughter, said one. No! He agreed to marry my daughter, said the other. And so they haggled before the King, until he called for silence. Bring me my biggest sword, said Solomon, and I shall hew the young man in half. Each of you shall receive a half. Sounds good to me, said the first lady. But the other woman said, Oh Sire, do not spill innocent blood. Let the other womans daughter marry him. The wise king did not hesitate a moment. This man must marry the first ladys daughter, he proclaimed. But she was willing to hew him in two! exclaimed the kings court. Indeed, said wise King Solomon. That shows she is the true mother-in-law.

Marion County medical examiners arrived on scene to identify the body but could not confirm if Weiss is the casualty. On Tuesday it was announced that the bones were sent to an anthropologist, and the ID could take some time. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was also on scene. The airplane found Sunday is a white Sonex experimental aircraft with a green stripe and N229P on the tail section. According to the FAA, the Fortuna-Sonex, is registered to Weiss. The aircraft was reported departing by a private pilot who did not file a flight plan from the Marion County-Dunnellon Airport to Zephyrhills Municipal Airport in Pasco County during unfavorable weather conditions, according to Aprils preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). In the same report, personnel from the Dunnellon Airport lost sight of the airplane as it flew south due to visual obstructions. Radar lost track of the aircraft as it continued south and an emergency locator was not reported to have been activated. Searchers with the Marion County, Citrus County and Hernando County sheriffs offices combed 41,000 acres of woodland beginning April 7 between Dunnellon and Zephyrhills when the plane was reported missing, but gave up the weeklong search with no results. The Halpata Tastanaki Preserve is directly south of the Dunnellon Airport in southwestern Marion County, a short distance west of State Road 200 and just north of the Citrus-Marion County border. Daryl Burns travels the preserves trails regularly and discovered the crash site when walking at the Pruitt Trailhead sometime around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday. I entered a big wooden hammock, and I as I entered the hammock I saw what I thought was a squatters camp and as I got closer I realized it was a plane, Burns said. The first thing that came to my mind was heres the plane, wheres the body? Burns was aware that a plane was reported missing six months ago in the area, but it wasnt until he found the skeletal remains that he knew it was the same plane. If the plane had been found earlier, then there wouldnt have been anybody there. So I knew, I didnt want to, but I knew there was a body inside, so I walked around the side, looked in and there he was, Burns said. I was a little scared because that is my first time seeing something like that. According to Burns, the plane was upside down and generally still intact except for extensive damage to planes front cabin and nose. When it did hit the ground, I think it hit nose first because the rotor was about five feet in front of the plane, Burns said. Burns later called 911 from the preserves entrance located off of Southwest County Road 484 and managed to flag down a Dunnellon police officer. Marion County sheriffs investigators collected vital pieces of evidence, including the GPS locator, scattered around the site. Further details on the crash will be released after a joint-preliminary report is filed by the FAA with assistance from the Sheriffs Office.

The topic of veterans let both candidates attack the Department of Veterans Afffairs, categorizing it as broken. Moving onto Obamacare, the dialogue fired up both the candidates and the audience. We do need to repeal Obamacare and replace it with something that works, said Nugent. Koller maintained that 10.3 million Americans now have health care who never had it before. The U.S. Postal Service was another hot topic. Its the largest employer of veterans why are we trying to trash it? asked Koller. But Nugent replied that the Postal Service has failed to deal with peoples use of the Internet and come up with a responsive business plan.

Around 2:30 Friday afternoon, Marion County Sheriffs deputies responded to an armed bank robbery at CenterState Bank located at 7755 S.W. 65th Ave Road in Ocala. A white male entered the bank with a silver semi-automatic handgun and demanded money from clerks and a client inside. There were two clerks working at the front with a client when the armed man entered the bank. The clerks gave the man an undetermined amount of cash. The suspect demanded money that the client was holding. In the process of collecting the money from the clerks and the client, he accidently dropped the clients money and she recovered it. According to the surveillance video and witness statements, the suspect was a white male, about 5, medium build, wearing a ski mask, dark blue jeans, a winter coat and gloves. The robber fled on foot into a field close to the bank. Through further investigation, 28-yearold Daniel David Vermette has become a possible suspect for this robbery. If you have any information about his whereabouts, please contact Detective George Wallace at 352-843-8116 or the Marion County Crime Stoppers at 352-368-STOP. NEWS BY PAT FAHERTY Citrus County ChronicleVoters have a distinct choice in the race for the U.S. House District 11 seat, with Ocala Democrat Dave Koller challenging U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent, R-Brooksville. The two went head to head for the first time Tuesday night at the Citrus County Chronicles political forum. Nugent, seeking his third term, is the former Hernando County sheriff. Koller owns a company that trains developmentally disabled people for the workforce. This is his first run at public office. The pairs differences on issues showed quickly and each had his own verbal supporters in the audience. Nugent is running to continue a career of community service, while Koller is running out of frustration with government he does not think is working anymore. On job creation, the two took issue. Kollers view is that small businesses are folding up everywhere, and its time to invest in the American people and the nations crumbling infrastructure. My opponent does not want to raise minimum wage, said Koller. But Nugent took the position the federal government should not be setting the minimum wage he said the issue should be left to the states.. The Democratic side says one size fits everything, Nugent said. The debate took a lively turn as Nugent mentioned that Koller INDEX Bookmark..............................28 Cherrywood.........................15 Classifieds.............................30 Indigo East............................25 Marion Landing..................21 Oak Run.................................16 OTOW.....................................23 Out to Pastor..........................9 Pun Alley...............................29 Puzzles...................................20CitizenS UTH MARION Serving S.R. 200 Communities & BusinessesFRIDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2014 VOLUME 19 NUMBER 20 www.smcitizen.com At around 8 a.m. Saturday, Marion County Sheriffs deputies responded to 3425 S.W. 165th Avenue Road in Ocala in reference to a residential and vehicle burglary. After further investigation, detectives arrested and charged 18year-old Zach St. Pierre and two juveniles, 15-year-old Michael Dawson and 16-year-old Alan Page with six counts of burglary and grand theft. St. Pierre and Dawson allegedly admitted the three are responsible for 80-90 burglaries in the area. Deputies made contact with the victims at 3425 SW 165th Avenue Road, who say close to $1,300 of property and cash was taken from their garage and car. Fresh shoe impressions were at the scene and deputies began canvassing the area for suspects. St. Pierre was riding his bike heading south on 165th Avenue Road. Deputies say matched his shoe prints to one of the impressions taken from the victims yard. St. Pierre said Dawson and Page were also involved and took detectives to several locations that they burglarized together. Stolen items from these residences were found at St. Pierres home and a stolen handgun was recovered at Dawsons residence. It should be noted that all three suspects footprints were exact matches to the ones found at Saturday mornings crime scene. Because of St. Pierres and Dawsons statements as to committing close to 80-90 burglaries in this area, detectives are expecting more charges to be filed against these three individuals. 32~ Friday, October 24, 2014 www.smcitizen.com Suspects may have committed 90 burglaries in area St. Pierre Vermette Plane, remains found in woods off 484 MARION COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE PHOTOSheriffs officials discuss the finding of a plane, with remains inside, that was missing since April. BY BUSTER THOMPSON Citrus County ChronicleAn aircraft matching the description of a plane reported missing in April was found Sunday night by a Dunnellon man walking on a trailhead inside the Halpata Tastanaki Preserve in southwest Marion County. Human remains were also found still inside the cockpit. According to a Marion County Sheriffs Office news release, the plane is believed to be the one piloted by 74-year-old Theodore Weiss of Zephyrhills and was last seen departing from Dunnellon Airport en route to the Zephyrhills Airport on Saturday, April 5. It was reported missing the following Monday. This is his plane, Marion County sheriffs spokeswoman Lauren Lettelier said.

BY MIKE WRIGHT Citrus County ChronicleINVERNESS The issues surrounding Amendment 2 were given a thorough thrashing and then some during a raucous debate Wednesday night at the Citrus County Auditorium. Orlando attorney John Morgan, the money and face behind the medical marijuana amendment, squared off with state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness. For a solid hour the men sat side by side arguing whether medical marijuana is saving grace for thousands of patients of debilitating diseases or a way for children to get a quick and easy high. The crowd of about 350 seemed pretty solid with Morgan, whose For the People law firm is known via TV ads throughout the state. And they cheered loudly when Morgan chastised Smith by saying, You cant sit up here and make $%&* up! That works in Tallahassee but it doesnt work in Citrus County.
