SERVING THE COMMUNITIES & BUSINESSES BETWEEN SR 200 AND US 27




Groups encourages farmland preservation


Michel Northsea
EDITOR
Residents near Southwest
80th Avenue and Southwest
90th Avenue, off U.S. 27, want
to keep their land as farm-
land and not as urban re-
serve county staff was told
last Thursday evening.
A crowd of about 25 people
gathered last week for one of
a half-dozen meetings
around the county to discuss
what the county might look
like in 25 years. The meet-
ings were required as part of
the updating of the county's


comprehensive plan.
The last review ofthe com-
plete plan was done in 1998,
said Jimmy Massey, director
of Marion County's Growth
Management Department.
Several residents ex-
pressed concern that the
county's land use map was
showing the urban reserve
area a designation used to
show where the next devel-
opment could go at South-
west 80th Avenue instead of
Southwest 90th Avenue.
Those residents, with sup-
port from the Northwest
Coalition for Balanced


Another visioning meeting on the comp
plan is set for the Freedom Library,
Thursday, May 20, at 6 p.m.


Growth, asked that the urban
reserve area be moved back
to the east side of 80th Av-
enue.
If the urban reserve area
was developed, it would cre-
ate the possibility of having
as many as four to six homes
per acre a concern ex-
pressed by others in atten-
dance.


A letter read into the
record from Peter Bowers,
president of the Northwest
Coalition for Balanced
Growth, suggested the hous-
ing density should be no
greater than one home per
acre in the area west of
Northwest 60th Avenue,
south of County Road 326
and north of State Road 40.


Another request from the
group was the preservation
of green space and green-
ways along the roads to "pre-
serve its rural/agrarian
character."
The group also requested,
with others at the meeting
expressing the same senti-
ments, the main priority
should be using the 130,000
already permitted vacate
building lots in the county
before any new land is devel-
oped.
During the two-hour meet-
ing, much of the discussion
centered on the county's


transfer development rights
(TDR) program.
With the TDR program,
landowners of large tracts of
land may sell their develop-
ment rights in the "sending"
area, much of which is the
northwest section of the
county, to a developer in the
"receiving area."
The landowner must put a
conservation designation on
the acreage he gave up the
right to develop with the sale
of those rights.

Many steps make a relative easy descend down the Lake Eaton Sinkhole Trail in the Ocala National Forest.


Visiting the sinkhole at Lake Eaton


Michel Northsea
EDITOR
Through the woods and
down a mile-long bumpy,
dirt road in the Ocala Na-
tional Forest, there's a
trailhead for the Lake
Eaton Sinkhole Trail.
Last week, as another
outing offered through
Marion County Parks and
Recreation Department, a
group of hikers were led


through the mile-plus long
trail to the 80-feet-deep,
450-feet-wide sinkhole.
The hike was led by
Michigan born, Florida
raised Kevin Congdon.
Much of his youth he
spent running in the for-
est. As an adult, he con-
tracts with the Florida
Wildlife Commission to
help with its summer
camps to teach teens the
joy of the outdoors and


Marion County Parks and
Recreation to lead hikes
as needed.
"I've learned through
experience," he said
pointing out a possible
hiding place for an East-
ern diamondback rat-
tlesnake in among a
fallen, rotting pine trees.
Snakes try to camouflage
themselves to avoid
falling prey to a hawk.
Along the hike, Congdon


encouraged taking advan-
tage of the recreational
opportunities offered in
the 385,000-acre forest. He
suggested just driving
some of the 1,500 miles of
dirt roads in the forest
and looking for wildlife,
including deer and bears.
Maps are available at the
visitor's center. All dirt

Many prominent com-
munity people will find
themselves in "jail" next
Wednesday, May 26.
They'll be in jail at the
Country Club of Ocala in
Silver Springs Shores and
all for benefit of the Mus-
cular Dystrophy Associa-

One of those going to jail
for the cause is Howard
Mathis, manager of the
Foxwood Farm community
on U.S. 27.
To help raise his bond
money, he and his wife,
Rita, hosted a hot dog cook-


out Friday afternoon for
residents of the commu-
nity
Besides doing lots of the
cooking, Howard also took
some ribbing.
His wife started the rib-
bing when she made two
collections jars. One jar
was designated for keeping
Howard in jail and the
other one was for getting
Howard out of jail.
It wasn't long before the
jar for "keeping Howard in

honors older Americans


May is Older Americans
Month a tradition that
dates back to 1963 in honor
of the legacies and ongoing
contributions of older
Americans. Every presi-
dent since John F Kennedy
has issued a proclamation
before or during the month
of May each year, asking
Americans to pay tribute to
the older residents of our
communities.
This year's Older Ameri-
cans Month theme Age
Strong! Live Long! rec-
ognizes the diversity and
vitality of today's older
Americans who span three
generations. Marion
County Senior Services
and West Marion Commu-
nity Hospital are teaming
up to recognize the older
citizens of our community
by hosting "The Art of
Aging" an Intergenera-
tional Photo Journal of the
clients served through
MCSS and their Meals on
Wheels and Congregate
Dining Facilities. The pho-
tos, which were all taken
by students in the Marion
County Center for the Arts
Photography program at
West Port High School, will
be on display at WMCH
through May 28.
Marion County Senior
Services Executive Direc-
tor, Sarah Stroh says "We
hope that Marion County
residents will take time to
visit this wonderful photo
exhibit during Older Amer-
ican's Month. Our older
residents have lived
through wars and hard
times as well as periods of
unprecedented prosperity
They have worked hard to
make our country better
for all of us, and these pho-
tos pay homage to just a
few of them in a very
poignant way"

roads in the forest are in
gird fashion linking back to
three different highways:
State Road 40, County Road
314 or State Road 19.
During hunting season,
Nov. 4 through Jan. 2, much
of the national forest is
closed to non-hunters. The
exception is the Juniper
Springs Recreation Area,
open year-around to visi-
tors.
An overlook platform,
with benches for resting,
gives visitors an opportunity
to see the top edge of the
sinkhole without walking
down 10 flights of stairs.
Those continuing the walk
find temperatures 15 de-
grees cooler and a variety of
trees, including a magnolia
tree, as they descend the
stairs.
For Carrie Thomas of
Ocala, the hike was her first
trip with the Marion County


Parks and Recreation and
her first venture into the na-
tional forest She signed up
for the hike because she
wanted exercise and some-
thing a little more adventur-
ous than a walk in the
neighborhood.
She and her mother, Carol
Sieg, both said they were
signed up for other hikes in
the fall.
Walking along the foot-
path among scrub oaks, pine
trees and blue skies over-
head, Steve and Pam Shin-
nick both agreed they
enjoyed the hiking opportu-
nities the county offers.
The Shinnicks have taken
the kayak trips provided by
the county too.
Although the county won't
offer any more hiking trips
until the fall, they offered
five hikes since January and
10 kayaks this winter/
spring, said Cathy Norris,
recreational manager for
Marion County Park and
Recreation.
This summer the county

Fairfield Village


Mother's Day celebrated with breakfast


Residents enjoying their breakfast are,from left to right,
Irene Dale, her daughter, Charlene Jarvis and Barbara
Graziano. All ladies are wearing Mother's Day corsages'


Though Mother's Day
is past this year,
there was a very nice
celebration on that special
day, Sunday, May 9, at the
Fairfield Village Club-
house. All those present
agreed that it was a fine
way to begin the tradi-
tional day to honor
"Moms."
The traditional day was
celebrated with another
"mini-tradition" which has
come to be anticipated by
our community. This year
the breakfast, though pre-
pared by both men and
women, was served by four
of our most enthusiastic
neighbors. Ray Sluss, Bob
Kelsch, Bob Kulesa, and
Chuck Belcher put on the
aprons and the gloves and
honored their wives as
they would have honored
their moms had they been
present for the wonderful
meal. The smiles were
wide and the warm feel-
ings were abundant as all
present thoroughly en-
joyed the meal. There
were married couples, sin-
gle ladies, and others who
gathered for the delicious
food.
Breakfast casseroles
(sausage or veggie) were
complemented with pas-
tries, fruit cups, and both
hot and cold beverages.
The menu was enticing,
but more important was
the idea of enjoying and
celebrating one of Amer-
ica's most significant holi-
days. The second Sunday
in May is the day that most
countries which do have
the celebration choose to
honor the mothers of the
world.
With just a little re-
search, I found lots more
about the origins of
Mother's Day than I
wanted to delve into. But
suffice it to say, that I did
confirm my previous
knowledge by finding veri-
fication that the American
version was brought about
in 1870. Julia Ward Howe,
who 12 years earlier had
written the "Battle Hymn
of the Republic" wanted to
encourage the mothers of
the battle-torn country to
be honored and to have
them rally so that their
sons would never again be
sent to combat against the
sons of other American
mothers.
I would be willing to say
that the idea would meet
with much support today,
not just with Americans in


combat with other Ameri-
cans but also with Ameri-
cans involved in warfare
anywhere. What a glorious
celebration could take
place if such needless loss
and suffering could be
stopped forever! For those
who say that will never
happen..well perhaps that
is true. But if it ever were
to happen, I believe it
would be because mothers
around the world rallied
together to stop the blood-
shed.
At Fairfield Village, we
support our troops. That is
evident as soon as one en-
ters the clubhouse. How-
ever, there is no doubt that
we would celebrate peace-
makers with celebrations
the likes of which we have
not seen before. The joy
would be expressed with
exuberance by our friends
and neighbors in Fairfield
village a lively place
filled with lovely people.

Ending of a space

shuttle era
right puffy clouds kept many of us
from viewing the space shuttle At-
lantis as it crossed the sky Friday af-
ternoon.
Those of us trying to get a glimpse of At-
lantis included some from our office, the
bar two doors down and maybe even you.
Several residents of Fairfield Village had
traveled to the space coast to see the
launch up close.
Those in the area estimate upwards to 3
million people see a launch and what a
show they see.
Friday's launch was the last of three. The
last launch for Atlantis and its 32nd mis-
sion, although it is designed for 100 mis-
sions.
The space program is changing because
President Obama is "retooling" the pro-
gram. Here in Florida that "retooling" is
expected to cost 9,000 jobs. Considering the
residual effects of layoffs no eating out,
no buying cars, more homes on the market
- those 9,000 jobs are just the tip of the ice-
berg,
Some U.S. gov-
ernment estimates Editorial
suggest that NASA Editorial
generated more
than 40,000 jobs and
$4 billion into Florida's economy in 2008.
In retooling the space program, Obama
has said he supports NASA 100 percent,
but he wants to give private companies $6
million dollars to build their spacecraft
and fly them to the International Space
Station. In doing so, he extends the life of
the space station by five years, at least
budgetary
Previous president's had NASA planning
to go back to the moon again and then be-
yond.
When the space program was formed in
1958, the mandate was that NASA would
share want they learned.
As a result of the sharing of information,
we have benefited from NASA successes
and mistakes.
Every time you gas up your car at one of
the pay at the pump places, you can thank
NASA. Every time you stop by an ATM ma-
chine for some cash, you can thank NASA
and campers may even want to thank
NASA for freeze-dried foods.
NASA research has helped in the med-
ical arena too.
Their research has helped developed
CAT scans, portable x-ray equipment that
can be used after a natural disaster and
technology for artificial heart pumps and
heart defibrillators.
Kidney dialysis machines, remote ro-
botic surgery, MRIs, cardiac angiography
and physical therapy machines help thou-
sands of people everyday and we have
NASA to thank for those marvels.
Did you tie on a pair of athletic shoes this
morning for your daily exercise; NASA had
a hand in some of the manufacturing tech-
niques for that shoe too.
Yes, private companies could have dis-
covered all those marvels too, but would
they have and could we afford those costs?
Sometimes, it's best not to mess with
something that really isn't broken.

There was something frantic in the
young voice on the other end of the
phone.
"Grandma, grandma, grandma?" the young
voice tentatively questioned.
There was a vague familiarly to the sound
of the questioning voice, so the gray-haired
grandmother searched her mind for a name.
Was it her grandson who she had lost touch
with when her son had lost his custody bat-
tle? Was it her grandson that was in college
now doing well but had some scrapes with
the law in the past?
She took a stab.
"Nathan, Nathan?," is that you she said
thinking of her grandson in college.
"Yes, grandma, it's me Nathan," he an-
swered, his voice firmer but still frantic-
sounding.
"What's wrong? Is there something wrong
with your parents" questioned the now fully
focused, but worried, grandmother.
"I'm in trouble grandma. We went to Canada
and the girls I was with had some marijuana.
I didn't know they had it. I don't smoke," he
said admitting he had been arrested and was
waiting trial in a few short hours.
"Shouldn't you have been in class?"
grandma asked.
The young man explained that he was al-
most at the end of the term some of his


classes were over and some were not. As a re-
sult, he only had a few more classes to worry
about.
His big worry right now was getting the
$2,700 he needed for court.
On the other end of the line, grandma
looked at her watch and realized she needed
to hurry to her doctor's appointment. She ex-
plained her dilemma to her grandson and
then suggested he call his mother.
He hadn't wanted to disappoint his mother
again, he told his grandmother.
"Call your uncle she suggested, he's a
lawyer and got you out of trouble in the past,"
grandma said.
Good idea," the voice said asking for his
uncle number.
Grandma didn't have the phone number.
"I haven't seen your uncle since your fa-
ther was promoted to chief," she told Nathan.
The phone went dead.
Worried, the grandmother paced the floor
a few minutes- worried about her grandson.
She got out her address book and called
Nathan's number.
There was no answer. She left a message
in his voice mail.
She called her son, Nathan's dad. He an-
swered and assured her he had seen Nathan
just that morning but he would call Nathan's
mom. Nathan's mom said her son had been
home for lunch about an hour earlier and
was back in class.
Class was in Virginia not New York as
"Nathan" had claimed while he had her on
the phone.
Then it hit her. She had almost been a vic-
tim of a scam. Scammed out of her hard-
earned money because of her concern for the
well being of her grandson.
This is a true story that happened to one
of our neighbors. The names were changed
to protect them.
Don't let something similar happen to you.
It pays to be leery of anyone asking for money
- even the grandchildren.

Good intentions only as
.
gOod as the tender


1',-

If awards
were given to
people who
have the best of
intentions, I
would be work-
ing on my accept-
ance speech
right now. How-
ever, I know that
intentions are
only as good as
the one who
crafts the inten-


tion.
Recently, the Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage needed to go visit her parents.
This necessitated her being away for five
days. In her absence, I was in charge. As
they say, I was the chief cook and bottle
washer. Unfortunately, I did not know the
proper way of cooking a chief or if it was
legal, and there were no bottles around
for me to wash. In her absence, I would
have to do a lot of improvising but I did
not think I needed to bother her with such
trivial information while she was packing.
Finally, she was off and I, as they say,
was on.
The first thing I did was evaluate my sit-
uation and formulate a game plan. After
all, I was in charge. I wanted to make sure
I got the most out of every hour. I hate
waste, and I hate wasting time. I fully in-
tended to use the time at my disposal for
my greatest pleasure.
After several moments of this, I was ex-
hausted, got a soda from the refrigerator,
went to the back porch and reclined on
my lounge chair. I would unwind and
think through the things I wanted to do in
her absence.
I was finding out that this being in
charge is rather hard work. Therefore, a
nap was in order. I smiled as I leaned
back and allowed my body to relax. It felt
wonderful. A nap before lunchtime was
something unheard of when You Know
Who was in charge. Now that I am in
charge, a nap is whenever I want to take
it. This being in charge has real advan-
tage.
I made it through the first day Looking
back, I am not quite sure how I did it.
Late in the afternoon, I had come up
with an excellent plan for my evening
arrangements. I plan to party the evening
away until the wee hours of the morning.
No curfew tonight. I would let down my
hair, what hair I had, and throw caution
to the wind. Look out wind. Tonight would
be the beginning of my free-for-all. The
refrigerator was well stocked with good-
ies, and I had a plan. I love it when a plan
comes together.
My intentions were to stay up until the
wee hours of the morning. Along about 11
o'clock my eyes became so heavy I could
hardly keep them open. I grabbed a soda
and another apple fritter and went to bed.
I would do something not permitted
under normal circumstances; I would
have a snack in bed while watching tele-
vision.
I do not know what happened. Maybe it
was all the apple fritters I had, but the
next thing I knew the sun was coming
through the window and it was morning.
Whatever happened to my all night party?
There on my nightstand was a half-
empty can of soda and a partially eaten
apple fritter. I then smelled something I
have never smelled before. I sniffed, but I
could not identify the strange odor. I

sniffed again, but no better
luck. No matter how much
I sniffed, it was always the
same.
Every morning when I
get up I smell freshly
brewed coffee floating in
from the kitchen area.
Now, for some strange rea-
son, I smelled no such
smell. The morning air was
bankrupt of any delicious
aroma that I could identify.
I walked into the kitchen
and there was the coffee
pot where it was supposed
to be, but to my chagrin, no
coffee was brewing. I can-
not understand that be-
cause every morning I
wake up to the smell of
fresh brewed coffee. There
is no better way to get up in
the morning than that. The
best way to start every
morning is with a nice hot
cup of coffee.
For as long as I can re-
member, I have always en-
joyed the morning
fragrance of freshly
brewed coffee. Why should
today be any different?
It then dawned upon me.
I did not fix the coffee pot
the night before, like my
wife always does. That was
just the beginning. Where
were my eggs over easy,
bacon, fresh biscuits and
gravy? I always have that
for breakfast. I looked in
the refrigerator and saw
them in their natural habi-
tat, which was raw.
I sighed deeply and said

to myself, "Where in the
world is my breakfast?"
And myself replied, "Silly,
you have to make it your-
self."
Well, I had a real good
talking to myself Then, I
do not know how it hap-
pened, but I heard my wife
talking. Out of my mouth
came her words that I have
heard a thousand times be-
fore, "Breakfast does not

moment, I had become my
wife, which was not my in-
tention.
The only area where per-
sonal work does not count
is in salvation. The apostle
Paul writes, "For by grace
are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God: Not of
works, lest any man should
boast" (Ephesians 2:8-9
KJV).
God does not intend for
us to save ourselves. His
full attention is our com-
plete salvation, and God is
always as good as His
Word.

Quail Meadow


Neighbor saves calf


' Arolynl
Slocumb
Thank you, thank you,
thank you the re-
sponse to the postal
workers "Stamp Out
Hunger" food drive was out-
standing. Robby (our mail-
man) said the response from


Quail Meadow was fabulous!
It was a tremendous help
with the contributions being
collected at the clubhouse.
Over 191 tons of food was
collected in Marion County.
We can all feel good about
helping those less fortunate.
Remember, we always have a
collection box in the club-
house. This is for donations
for Interfaith. They can also
use the styrofoam egg cartons
- empty, of course. Mary and
John Zdarsky take the contri-


butions to Interfaith every
week.
We have cows in the pas-
ture that backs up to N.W
35th Street. This is the time
of year when the new calves
arrive. Those who live along
this street, and other resi-
dents who walk along that
street, observe the cows all
the time. Last week Carol
Sjogren and Hilde Tweet
were taking their morning
walk and witnessed a new
born calf that wasn't re-


spending to its mother.
Thelma Stevens, who lives
on 35th, said she watched the
mother nudge the calf and
try to get it to stand up, but
with no success. There were
a few times when the little
baby would stand on very
wobbly legs, but couldn't
stand long enough to nurse.
The mother just stayed at a
distance, as if she was giving
up on her newborn.
Bob Stevens couldn't stand
watching as this newborn
was not able to stand on his
own. Bob went into the pas-
ture and fed the baby calf
milk. After many hours of
Bob's nurturing this little
calf, the little one was able to
stand on his own, and the
mother came back and
claimed her baby Everyone
is pleased with the happy
ending to this story.

Have you noticed how all
the trees at the clubhouse
have been trimmed? This
huge task wasn't done by a
"tree" service, but rather by
a volunteer resident. That
person is Earle Talley The
trees look great. We all owe a
big "thank you" to Earle for
all the work he does around
the clubhouse. He saves us
hundreds of dollars for main-
tenance.

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH
L ,'


by M.E Hapton,D.D.S.
SPITTING
IMAGE
While the persistent lack of
saliva known as "dry mouth"
may seem like little more
than a nuisance, it should not
be ignored. Aside from
making it easier to talk,
saliva helps prevent tooth
decay by washing away food
and plaque, and minerals
found in saliva help repair
early tooth decay. Saliva also
limits bacterial growth that
can dissolve tooth enamel or
lead to infections, and it
neutralizes acids in the
mouth. For all these reasons,
cases of dry mouth should be
brought to the dentist's
attention. Once thought to be
a part of aging, it is now
recognized that xerostomia
(the medical term for dry
mouth) is actually related to
the medications taken by
older individuals rather than
age.
The office of Mark E.
Hampton, D.DS is able to
target and treat all of your
dental problem areas before
they turn into larger issues.
At your next appointment
we'll be happy to discuss all
your dental options in detail
with you. We are a highly
qualified and experienced team
of professionals who want you
to look and feel your best. Call
us at 352-489-5071 and we
will gladly answer any
questions you may have.
We're located at 11902
Illinois Street, Dunnellon.
Come smile with us! "We're
Dedicated to Excellent
Dentistry."
P.S. On any given day, a
healthy adult produces about
three pints of saliva

Roses featured at Garden Club meeting


W-tricia


When you hear the
word Rose what do
you think of? Long
stem, Valentine's Day,
Mother's Day, a symbol of
love. According to some
sources, the rose is the an-
cient symbol of love and
beauty The word 'rose' in
some languages means
pink or red.
Recently, the Garden


Club of Stone Creek heard
Pam Greenewald of Old
Garden Roses of Angel Gar-
dens speak on the topic of
antique or Old Garden
roses. According to Pam
these roses have enjoyed a
comeback in the last 10
years.
"The heirloom rose is the
ultimate flowering shrub,
most blooming throughout
the year Each one is
uniquely individual with
'his' or 'her' history carried
through time with each new
cutting. Every bush is a
clone of the original bush
which may have graced the
gardens of historic icons
such as Josephine Bona-
parte and Louis Phillipe,"
said Pam.
Pam told the audience
about the Texas Rose

noted for saving many vari-
eties of Heritage roses from
extinction. This rose sur-
vived in cemeteries for
more than one hundred
years with little or no care.
She told us that the scent of
Old Roses brings back
memories of times past
when life was slower and
we seemed to have the time
to stop and smell the roses.
After Pam gave her talk
about antique roses and
their care, she had a variety
of roses for sale. She also
handed out information
about an upcoming event
on Saturday, May 22 in
Alachua. It is the Old Rose
Lover's Gathering. It will be
from 11 to 4 p.m. There will
be a rose garden tour; rose
seminars, propagation
workshop and a big rose
sale. For those who missed
the presentation by Pam at
Stone Creek, you can still
learn about these beautiful
roses. For more informa-
tion you can call Pam at
352-359-1133 or e-mail her
at gardenan-
gel22@gmail. com.


If you like gardening or

- Connie Drake, co-secre-
taries Dolly Toksaz and
Gretchen La Sasso, treas-

cause it was the children
who were the guarantors of
the Torah we are encourag-

ice cream party".
