Sheriff starts text messages


for serious situations


The Marion County Sher-
iff's Office (MCSO) will now
offer another option to reach
crises-ready professionals by
texting a message to 352-351-
9111. This new number is for
serious situations, but should
not be your first option. In an
emergency, call 911. For non-
emergencies, call 352-732-
9111. If callers are in a
situation in which they can-
not dial 911 to speak, they


can now text an urgent mes-
sage to the Communications
Center using this new num-
ber
By providing this new
number, MCSO is embracing
the latest evolving technol-
ogy in communication. These
days, there are more wireless
phones in use than land-line
phones. Therefore, there is a
growing need to provide ad-
ditional options for reaching


the Marion County Commu-
nication Center.
MCSO is the first in the
state to provide this service.
The set-up costs were less
than $1,000 and the monthly
maintenance is less than $50
per month. MCSO has devel-
oped a plan that is cost effec-
tive and allows people to use
yet another resource to reach
MCSO during serious inci-
dents.

Wife'jailed' instead of hubby


Michel Northsea
Editor

Being married and work-
ing together sometimes has
its advantage.
Last week, residents of
Foxwood Farms gathered
for a hotdog cookout to
raise bail money so their
manager, Howard Mathis,
could get out of jail.
It was a well-known fact
at the cookout that Mathis
was going to be arrested
the following week. His
charge was aiding and
abetting the Muscular Dys-
trophy Association during
their Ocala ALS Awareness
Lock Up last week.
ALS is more commonly
referred to as Lou Gherig's
Disease.
Jail was to be no ordi-
nary lockup but rather a
short stay at the Country
Club of Ocala, complete
with snacks and beverages.
But when the car came
to pick up Mathis at the
sales center, he was busy
with a customer. He


Ocala Palms resident John
Sotomayor was one of 118
"jailbirds" raising funds for
the MDA and bringing
awareness to ALS.
quickly volunteered his
wife and office manager,
Rita, for the cause.
So it was Rita who spent
time at the country club
making phone calls to find
some more people willing
to donate to her "bail" and
enjoying the spread of tasty
food treats. After posting
her bail, the money she
had earned from donations
of friends and families, she


was whisked back to work
in a stretch limousine.
"That was the first time
I'd ever rode in a limo," she
said.
Overall, Rita said she
enjoyed the event.
"It was fun. Everyone
was having a good time and
it was all for a good cause,"
she said.
Rita and Ocala Palms
resident and former Mes-
senger columnist John So-
tomayor were two of the
118 people who were "jail-
birds" for the cause.
Bringing in the most bail
money was Jerry Murphy,
owner of Murphy Homes
with $3,599.
Paul Vrotos, CEO and
Grace Perez, of Peterson
and Smith Equine Hospi-
tal, posted "bond" of $3,544.
Terri Fisher and Joyce
Urban of the Institute of
Cardiology collected $3,200
for the cause; Riley Tom-
linson, sales manager of
Pepsi, $2,910 and Meresa

For those people who
have purchased some of
those "as seen on TV"
gadgets, there's a new
place to shop.
For those wanting a book
for the coffee table, a new
place to shop or a unique
gift- there's a new place to
browse.
Last Saturday, the ribbon
was officially cut for Dis-
count Books and Gift Ware-
house at 7365 S.W 38th St.,
Unit 205, near Merchan-
dise Liquidators, Cheapo
Depot.
Open Tuesdays through
Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6


p.m., the new store offers a
storefront and the adjoin-
ing warehouse full of a va-
riety of books, many for
children, some inspira-
tional, others on gardening
and cooking. Some books
are perfect to display on
the coffee table at prices
that won't break the bank.
Some sets of children's
books from Readers Club
sell individually for $3.99
at other places. At the Dis-
count Books and Gift Ware-
house, a set of 10 books
costs $10.
The outlet is owned by
Lori Sunthonchart, and
her husband, Boone. Be-
fore going in the books and
gift business both worked


in the aerospace program
as engineers. Boone's re-
tired but Lori was laid off.
Looking for something to
do, the couple got involved
with a "Books are Fun" dis-
tributorship in South Car-
olina. They eventually
relocated to Oak Run
bringing their business
with them.
As part of their work
with "Books Are Fun," the
couple has three employ-
ees who set up displays for
teachers in area schools.
Having the business also
meant needing warehouse
space to store all the items

Please see BOOKS, Page 2


Bright colorful pop-up books are offered at the newly opened Discount Books and
Gift Warehouse. Owner Lori Sunthonchart shows one of the books.

causes paralysis and de-
stroys nerve cells that con-
trol voluntary muscle
movement. People with
ALS typically live three to
five years after diagnosis.
MDA is the world leader
in ALS research and serv-
ices, funding $23.7 million
in 2010, which surpasses
the combined efforts of all
other nongovernmental
health agencies dedicated
to ALS.


There are many ani-
mated furry creatures for
purchase or a cozy blanket
for $5, a stadium seat, a
speed chopper, or a carry-
along seat with a personal
cooler. Journals, packages
of craft papers, packages of
greeting cards and tomato
planters are also available
for purchase.


Besides bringing aware-
ness to the ALS, MDA also
works to improve the lives
of those with 43 different
muscle-related diseases.
Those efforts include a
summer camp in July for
kids with MD. Anyone in
Ocala can sponsor a child
to attend camp for $800.
For more information
and to sponsor a child, see
mda.org.


Although not all items
are $5, many of the items
offered in the outlet store
are and that includes
the sales tax, said Lori.
Browsers wanting to
make a purchase have the
option of using a debit
card, cash or a major credit
card.


Members of the Central Florida District Board of Trustees unveiled the new sign with
the new name of Central Florida Community. The new name is College of Central

SFairfield Village




Neighbors make community friendly


eissal

In May of 2009, the first
three people we met in
Fairfield Village were
our neighbors Eleanor
Jackson, Ethel Dearing, and
Edith Willett. The 3 E's (as I
remember identifying them
to my husband) were the "un-
official" welcoming commit-
tee of S.W 60th Place. What
sweet, lovely, and individual
ladies they all were to us as
newcomers from all the way
across the country- Califor-
nia.
Eleanor Jackson and Ethel
Dearing were exercising
their cute dogs when we first
talked. Edith Willett was part
of the entourage though her
little dog had passed away
some years ago. I later came
to know that the Jacksons
and the Dearings were the
first two couples to live on
S.W 60th Place as the initial
residents of Fairfield Village
in 1991.


Both couples came to Fair-
field Village, an active 55
+community, because FFV
fit their projected lifestyles.
The Jacksons had been very
busy in the equine field rais-
ing beautiful thoroughbred
horses and loving their gor-
geous animals. Ethel Dear-
ing had worked for many
years as a practical nurse
and loved her chosen profes-
sion. Shortly after arriving in
FFV however, she had to put
her profession to use on a
personal level as her hus-
band became quite ill, and
she lovingly cared for him
until he passed away in less
than a year. Sadly, Eleanor
Jackson lost her husband as
well and both were living
alone except for their com-
panion "puppies." Gradually
other nice people moved into
the neighborhood, and SW
60th Place became the first
street in the beautifully de-
veloping community.
By January of 2003, an-
other lovely "E" lady joined
Eleanor and Ethel when
Edith Willett (and Charlie,
her husband) moved into
their home two doors away
from both Eleanor's and
Edith's homes. Their friend-


ship continued until May 3
when we sadly lost our
neighbor Eleanor very unex-
pectedly We knew she had
not been well, but she main-
tained her chosen lifestyle
up until the last few weeks of
her life. We celebrate the life
of a special and unique
friend.
Inspired by these
"FRIENDS," I propose a
semi-regular component of


my Fairfield Village reports
to be what I am calling our
FFV'S Friendly Focus spot-
lighting people who make
our community not just a
group of disconnected
houses but a blending of
friendly homes.
FFV's Friendly Focus
Ethel Dearing and Edith
Willett have been close
friends as well as neighbors
since Edith (and Charlie)


moved to FFV in 2003. Ethel
hails from Merrillville, Indi-
ana, and Edith comes from
New York by way of Atlanta,
Georgia, where her son and
his family still live.
Ethel says that she was at-
tracted to Fairfield Village
because the prospectus em-
phasized a clean environ-
ment with close proximity to
doctors and hospitals be-
cause of her husband's


health. Ethel saw advertise-
ments that featured this
same thing along with nice
level, sodded lawns. Both
agree that they appreciate
their friendly neighbors but
also like the pride that others
show in maintaining their
homes and lawns for all to
enjoy

M rs. Ethel Dearing is
the owner of a poo-

that is almost 13 years old
and is a unique dog. Many
people in Fairfield Village
call Angel "the neighborhood
dog." Mrs. Ethel and Angel
have both been in the same
neighborhood for over 12
years. This poodle is in style
and has everything from
raincoats to a little American
flag wrap. She will not go out-
side in the rain without her


little raincoat.
Every seven weeks, Mrs.
Ethel takes Angel to the
groomer and takes in
whichever harness she wants
her nails and bows to match.
The groomers love Angel be-
cause she always does what
they want her to do and she

The ladies love each
other's friendly personali-
ties and the fact that each
cares for the other.
Ethel says of Edith, "She
is always nice to me and
makes me feel like one of
the family She is always
smiling and is glad to see
me and my little poodle,
Angel."
Edith responds with,
"Ethel was the first person

712 years. She lets me keep

When asked about "re-
tirement," the ladies have
a different point of view
brought about by Ethel's
having lost her husband 18
years ago. Ethel says she
still misses her husband
very much and wishes he
could be with her to do all
the things they liked to do
together before his illness.
Edith (on the other hand)
likes the fact that she and
Charlie have more time to-
gether
Both ladies agree that
the special element of
their lasting friendship is
that each one knows that
the other is ".. always there
for me." Edith and Ethel
trust each other com-
pletely neither one ever

friendship.

daily treat is her evening
walk, and that is how I met
Mrs. Ethel and Angel last
summer. I was visiting my
grandparents who are her
neighbors and saw this
nice lady and adorable
dog. I went out and spoke
to her and held Angel.
Since then we have been
very good friends.

young granddaughter,
Olivia, has adopted "Mrs.

Angel (showing off her

Hopefully, she will be fine

Stone Creek


Up, up and away in a balloon


the early 80s. They began fly-
ing in Tallahassee, and oper-
ated a ride operation there
for 12 years before moving
back to Central Florida. Bill
and Trish have been consult-
ants to balloon festival or-
ganizers since 1983 and
began the Tallahassee
Springtime Balloon Festival


tricia
1izzi

Linda Mann, fitness di-
rector was sent infor-
mation about the 50th
birthday of Del Webb. She was
told the theme for this birth-
day was 'Life without Limits."
Linda thought what could she
do to embrace this theme for
the residents of Stone Creek.
Her 'light bulb moment' was a
hot air balloon.
On Wednesday, May 19 this
experience became a reality
for four Stone Creek resi-
dents Harvey and Sandra
Paskin, Gary Harris and my-
self. Harvey and Sandra had
made two other balloon trips
- one along the Maryland
shore and one in Turkey
Gary and I were first timers
for a balloon ride. For those
who missed the experience,
Linda has another balloon
ride scheduled for Oct. 13.
The day began early 5:15
a.m., as we left the parking lot
of SC for a trip to Belleview to
make the balloon ride. Origi-
nally, the ride was to leave
from SC but the new airport
which now has a tower is con-
sidered an international air-
port. Balloons need special
and expensive equipment to
leave from SC. We arrived at
our destination around 6 and
waited for the balloon and the
van. Linda and her beautiful
son, Blake showed up to take
pictures. We got in the van
and started to look for a place
to take off. There was fog and
conditions did not look good.
We were told we could not
take off from one place and so
we moved on. We finally
boarded the balloon at 8:30
and the ascent was smooth.
One could not feel that you
were moving. We soared to
the height of 1,000 feet and we
could see horse and cattle
farms as well as forests.
Everything looked so green.
We could also spot the chaser
van with the large red circle
on the roof as it followed us.
The ride was extremely
smooth and we landed an
hour later in the Villages. We
landed in the road and the
process of dismantling the
balloon is impressive. People
waved to us as we made the
descent. It was truly a re-
markable experience.
We were then treated to
champagne, cheese, crackers
and dessert. We were given
the story behind the cham-
pagne. Story has it that bal-
loon rides started in France.
When the balloons would
come down, the farmers
thought they were monsters
and would rip the balloons.
They balloon rides took
place in France where they
make champagne so to keep
the farmers from destroying
the balloons they started giv-
ing out champagne to the
farmers. It worked for them
and for us.
Our experienced pilot was
Bill Whidden. Bill and his
wife, Trish, have been pro-
fessionally ballooning since


as well as many others, even
as far away as New Zealand.
Bill serves as a "Balloon-
meister" for many events and
has served in that role for
over 75 events across the
country Having flown in
most of the contiguous lower
48 states, they have also at-
tended ballooning events in


Harvey and Sandra Paskin,Gary Harris and Patricia Gizzi
climb aboard for a hot air balloon trip.

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH


byM. Hampton, D.D.S
DENTURE-ADHESIVE
ADVISORY
Denture-wearing patients
should know that
GlaxoSmithKline has ceased
manufacture of their denture
adhesives Super Poligrip
Original, Ultra Fresh, and
Extra Care over concerns of
"potential health problems
associated with the long-
term excessive use of our
zinc-containing denture
adhesive products." While
the manufacturer states that
their products are safe when
used as directed, use of
excessive amounts of the
product over a period of
years may pose a threat of
neurological symptoms and
blood problems (such as
anemia) linked with
ingestion of the adhesive. It
should be noted that zinc is
not absorbed through the
mouth, but only when
swallowed. As a precaution
against unwanted effects
arising from misuse of the
product, GlaxoSmithKline
plans to reformulate their
products without zinc.
Do you use denture-
adhesive? As is the case in
many products, there are a
number of options
consumers have regarding
denture adhesives. Complete
denture treatment needs to be
customized for each patient's
particular needs. At the
office of MARK E.
HAMPTON, DDS., we are
currently accepting new
patients. If you know of
anyone in need of quality
dental care we would
appreciate your referrals.
We're located at 11902
Illinois Street, Dunnellon,
where our purpose is to help
people reach and commit to
the highest level of dental
health personally appropriate
to them. Please call 352-489-
5071 to schedule an
appointment. We're
"Dedicated to Excellent
Dentistry."
P.S. Any questions that
denture wearers might have
concerning the continued use
of or replacements for Super
Poligrip Original, Ultra
Fresh, and Extra Care should
be posed to their dentist.

Carolyn
Slocumb


M ay 31 Memorial
Day This is a day of
"remembrance."
This is a day to reflect on the
sacrifices made by the men
and women who served, or
are serving in our military
Probably each of us can
name a family member or
friend who served in the
armed forces either many
years ago, or are serving now.
Do you remember when
Memorial Day was called
"Decoration Day?" This name
was given because it was a day
set aside to place flowers on
the graves of those who gave
their all for our country There
are several accounts of how
the day began. It is believed
that it had many beginnings in
various towns with the people
gathering to honor the war
dead in the 1860's. Memorial
Day was officially proclaimed
on May 5, 1868, by General
John Logan. The day was then
observed on May 30, 1868,
when flowers were placed on
the graves of the Confederate
and Union soldiers at Arling-
ton National Cemetery After
World War I the holiday was
changed to honor all Ameri-
cans who died fighting in any
war We now celebrate Memo-
rial Day as a national holiday
on the last Monday in May We
might note however, some
southern states have a sepa-
rate day set aside for Confed-
erate Memorial Day. In
Florida, along with several
other states, April 26 is the day


recognized. Jan. 19 and June 3
are also dates used by other
southern states. Did you pur-
chase a poppy to wear? The
VFW, in 1922, became the first
veterans' organization to sell
poppies nationally Since the
late 1950's on the Thursday
before Memorial Day, small
American flags are placed on
each of the graves in Arlington
National Cemetery In some
other national cemeteries the
Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts
decorate the graves with flags.
However you spent your Me-
morial Day, I hope you took
time out to reflect on those
brave men and women who
through the years gave their
all for our country. God bless
the USA.
We have had some sad days
recently here in Quail
Meadow. We lost two of our
residents within a few days of
each other. Bob Harton, also
known as "Baseball Bob" and
"Paducah Bob" passed away.
Bob and his dog, Rocket were
often seen on the streets of
our community Bob on his
motorized scooter and Rocket
walking beside him. Bob was
best known as a former player
forthe St. Louis Cardinals. He
played for the Cardinals
along with Stan Musial from
1954 to 1959. The other loss
was very tragic. Ralph Had-
dix was leaving the Race Trac
gas station when he was hit.
Please be careful as you exit
from this station. It is often
hard to determine the speed
of the cars exiting from 1-75
and turning onto highway 27.
Our condolences go to the
families of these two men.
Attention all Red Hot Fil-
lies- June 4 is our last meet-
ing for the summer. This will
be a salad lunch all food
will be provided -just bring
yourselves. Also, bring along
any ideas you have for trips,
projects, meetings, etc. for
the fall and winter. Meet with
us at the clubhouse at noon.

and adults to make reading a
summer priority. This year's
theme, Make a Big Splash @
Your Library... Read, will
drench library visitors with
reading opportunities sure to
fit any reader's fancy
The 2010 Summer Reading
Program starts June 13, and
will include reading chal-


lenges and prizes for all ages.
This is the second year the li-
brary system is offering pro-
gramming for adults and the
first year to include tiny tots
in the mix (at certain library
locations). All programs are
free and take place weekly at
library locations across the
county. Last year more than
29,000 families and individu-
als participated in this sys-
tem-wide program.
Research indicates that
children who read just two


books during the summer
can avoid losing significant
reading skills or the "sum-
mer slide." Marion County's
public libraries will offer ac-
tivities, programs and incen-
tives during this time to
encourage children and
teens to keep reading during
their vacations from school.

grams and events at a librarylo-
cation near you, visit the Web
