Marion County Fire Rescue grew by 20
firefighters when they were sworn in dur-
ing a special ceremony last month.
Each firefighter is also certified to han-
dle medical emergencies. Eleven of the 20
are paramedics and the other nine are
certified as emergency medical techni-
cians (EMTs).
The firefighters will round out crews at
14 different stations.

Scaling

Michel Northsea
EDITOR
Going from three loca-
tions to one location will
help the bottom line for a
non-profit group.
In past weeks, Habitat
for Humanity of Marion
County has closed two of its
retail ReStore thrift stores,
Dunnellon's and the one at
Jasmine Plaza, and moved
everything to the original
store at 926 N.W 27th Ave.
Signs on the door ask
browsers to "pardon the
dust" as they rearrange the
store. The rearranging is
making room for the mer-
chandise from the other
stores.
"Lorna and Bob and the
staff are busily working to
create a newly revitalized
"Thrift Store with a Mis-
sion," said Brad Nimmo,
president and chief execu-
tive officer of Habitat for
Humanity of Marion
County
The changes are notice-
able.
"It's going to be nice,"
said Susan Wilson of the
N.W 27th Avenue store as
she vacuums around a
table and sofa for sale.
Nearby customers lug
out their new found treas-
ures a silver trash bin that
opens up when stepped on
and a rolled up room-size
rug.
Proceeds from the sale of
the donated items in the
store provide some of the
funds for building homes
for "God's people," Nimmo
said.
However the two stores
were not bringing in
enough to help the bottom
line much. They were just
breaking even.

Health Department'COW' changes route


The Marion County Health
Department's Clinic on
Wheels 1(COW) will discon-
tinue providing services at
the Cunningham's Funeral
Home site beginning June 25.
"The pending closure of
Cunningham's Funeral
Home compels the Marion
County Health Department
to secure another site for our
Clinic on Wheels" said Dr.
Nathan Grossman, director
of the Marion County Health
Department. "Our COW plays
an instrumental role in the


healthcare of the citizens in
West Ocala, so we are proac-
tively moving to another site
to ensure that service to our
citizens is not interrupted."
The COW current loca-
tion of 434 NW Martin Luther
King Junior Avenue (Cun-
ningham's Funeral Home), in
Ocala, will move to 3970 SW
3rd Street (Gander Mountain
Sporting Good Store), in
Ocala. Services will be pro-
vided on the second Friday
and the forth Friday of every
month.


This sign is on a piece of property, west of Foxwood
Farms, on the south side of U.S. 27.The City of Ocala is
reviewing a site plan for a proposed Dollar General
Store.


The nine other West Ocala
sites serviced by COW 1 will
remain the same with un-
changed service times.
The health department's
COW 2 will not experience a
route change and will con-
tinue to offer services at its
current Dunnellon, Salt
Springs, Marion Oaks, Ft.
McCoy, Weirsdale, Fl High-
lands, and Hog Valley sites.
For more information
about the Clinic on Wheels
(COW) route change, contact

Department at (352) 629-0137,
extension 2148.

"This decision was based
on a number of factors in-
cluding the economy, amount
of saleable donations and
amount of foot traffic coming
through the doors," he said.
In the past, a typical day
would bring a truckload of
donations daily now they get
one-fourth of a load, Nimmo
said.
Items accepted for resale
include furniture, household
goods, appliances less than
10 years old and building and
remodeling materials, Wilson
said.
There are some items the
ReStore doesn't accept and
that includes clothing, med-
ical equipment, exercise
equipment and baby furni-
ture.
Arrangements for pick-up
of large items can be made be
calling 401-0075.
Hours for the ReStore will
be extended on July 6. Hours
will be Monday through Sat-
urday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

scenarios, said Miranda
Iglesias, MCFR public in-
formation officer
Douglas opted to move to
Marion County because he
wanted to work for a grow-
ing department that of-
fered a better opportunity
for advancement, he said.
The latest influx of fire-
fighters gives the county
497 firefighters for 23 of its
30 stations. Volunteers man
the other seven stations.
"We're not fully staffed
but we are fully opera-
tional," assures Iglesias.
With the county working
under a hiring freeze, fire
officials had to appeal to
commissioners for ap-
proval to hire the 20 fire-
fighters.
The additional firefight-
ers were deemed neces-
sary because of
promotions and pending
retirements, she said.
During the same cere-
mony, 12 firefighters were
promoted to the rank of
lieutenant, five were hon-
ored for 10-years of serv-
ice, two for 15-years, one
for 20-years and one for 25-
years of service.
In addition Kara Bibeau
was awarded the Robert E.
Blair Scholarship to con-
tinue her education and
training at the Florida
State Fire College. Blair
was killed in Iraq in 2006.
He wanted to become a
firefighter with Marion
County when he returned.
He was made an hon-
orary firefighter several
months after his death.
The scholarship was initi-
ated by his family Local

union, funds the scholar-
ship now.

Z Fairfield -


Fairfield Village


Fairfield Villagers love their yard art


Pictures are worth
thousands of words,
if we agree with the
cliche.
So, in keeping with that
premise, I hope you enjoy
a selection of some of the
more intriguing pieces of
what we often refer to as
"yard art" that are dis-
played on the lawns of the
homes at Fairfield Village.


Some of these are classi-
cal; some, spiritual; some,
whimsical; while others
are just really cute. All to-
gether these figures show
the many personalities of


our neighbors; and, in-
deed, they show that we
are a community known as
a lively place filled with
lovely people.

Shadow puppet show set for July 18 at Appleton


"Wayang" is an Indone-
sian word for theater, liter-
ally "shadow," and Michael
Richardson's Red String
Wayang Theatre will pres-
ent a shadow puppet the-
ater program on Sunday,
July 18, at 2 p.m. in the Au-
ditorium at the Appleton
Museum of Art, College of
Central Florida. The per-
formance is funded, in
part, by a grant from the


Southern Arts in partner-
ship with the National En-
dowment for the Arts, the
Florida Department of
State Division of Cultural
Affairs and the Florida
Arts Council.
The performance is in-
cluded in regular daily ad-
mission, which is $6 for
adults; $4 for seniors 55 or
better and students 19 and
over; $3 for youths ages 10-


18; and free for members,
CF students, children age 9

tary personnel and their
immediate families.
Wayang is a unique form
of theater employing light
and shadow. Puppets are
flat wood carvings
mounted on bamboo sticks
and held up behind a white
cloth with a light source
from the rear to cast a


shadow on the screen. Tra-
ditional Wayang plays in-
volve puppets moving in
synchronization to a story
being told by a narrator ac-
companied by background
music. Richardson is a
renowned puppeteer and
has created more than 500
new shadow puppet de-
signs used in his hundreds
of performances across the
country


Following his perform-
ance on July 18, Richard-
son will be the featured
instructor in the Apple-
ton's Summer Art Camp
scheduled from July 19 to
23. During the week, stu-
dents ages 7 to 14 will cre-
ate puppets, rehearse a
shadow theater production
and then perform the play
at the museum on the last
day Classes will run from 9


a.m. to noon and the cost
per student is $80 for mem-
bers and $90 for nonmem-
bers. For information and
registration contact Mu-
seum Educator Korene

Typically, that means six
to eight rescue workers are
pulled from Station 20,
Graff said.
In Hamilton County, they
spent six days searching
for people on foot, with
four-wheel vehicles and jet
skies.
Rescue workers from
Station 20 also helped
when Katrina hit Biloxi.
Locally, they rescued a
horse from a well and a
man accused of trying to
rob a CVS Pharmacy but
who ended up stuck in the
air-conditioning vent.
Photos on the wall of the
station of the horse rescue
caught the attention of
Sink who admitted her
love for animals.
To be fully prepared for
any emergency that comes
their way, Blair says each

eight hours in training at
the local level. Twice a

quired to completely mobi-

"S Info offered on the songs we sing


We have just cele-
brated "Indepen-
dence Day," or as
we say, "The Fourth of
July." This is the birthday
of the USA. Celebrations
are held all over the coun-
try on this day. It is also a
time for family cookouts
and the start of many va-
cations. It wasn't until 1938
that Congress made Inde-
pendence Day a paid fed-
eral holiday. In 1870,
Congress had made the
day and "unpaid" holiday
for federal employees. In
1778, General George
Washington celebrated the


day by giving his soldiers a
double ration of rum and
also an artillery salute.
Today, military bases give
a "salute to the union" by
firing one gun for each
state. We often sing our pa-
triotic songs on this spe-
cial day. We have many
beautiful songs about our
country- God Bless Amer-
ica, America the Beauti-
ful, This Land is Your
Land, America, and many
others.
The lyrics for America
the Beautiful were written
by Katharine Lee Bates,
an instructor at Wellesley


College in Massachusetts.
In 1893, Ms. Bates made a
trip to the top of Pikes
Peak and was so inspired
by the beauty of the sur-
roundings, she wrote the
poem, America, the Beau-
tiful. If you have ever trav-
eled in this part of
Colorado, you can under-
stand the inspiration Ms.
Bates must have felt. I will
never forget my first trip
there and seeing the
Rocky Mountains in their
splendor. The words to
this poem/song came to
mind immediately.
The poem was printed


for the first time on July 4,
1895, in a weekly journal,
The Congregationalist. Ms.
Bates revised the lyrics in
1904, and again in 1913.
The poem was not always
sung to the tune we know.
At first the words were
sung to any tune that
would fit most often to
"Auld Lang Syne." The
tune we now use was com-
posed in 1882 by Samuel
A. Ward and called "Ma-
terna." The words and the
music by Samuel Ward
were first published to-
gether in 1910. In fact, in
1926, the National Federa-


tion of Music Clubs held a
contest to put the words to
different music; none was
determined to be more ac-
ceptable. Therefore, we
will continue to sing this
beautiful song as we
learned it early in life.
Another favorite patri-
otic song is "My Country,
"Tis of Thee," or "Amer-
ica." The words to this
song were written in 1831
by Samuel Francis Smith.
Mr. Smith was a student at
the Andover Theological
Seminary in Andover,
Massachusetts. A friend
asked him to translate the


lyrics in some German
school song books. Rather
than translating words, he
wrote new lyrics to one of
the tunes. He did this in
thirty minutes time! The
original melody is in
Muzio Clementi's Sym-
phony Number 3. The
melody is also that of the
British national anthem,
God Save the Queen.
America, the song, was
first performed in public
on July 4, 1831. The first
publication was in 1832.
Happy Birthday, Amer-
ica and may God Bless
America!

dicts this will be an above-average hur-
ricane season.
Alex was the strongest June hurri-
cane to make landfall since 1966.
It has been years since a tropical
storm became a hurricane in the
month of June. Hurricane Allison did
in 1995 and Alex did in 2010.
Knowing that hurricanes happen, we
need to take the time to check our sup-
plies and be sure we have all the sup-
plies we need on hand.
It's best to get supplies into the home
early avoiding long lines at the grocery
stores. Putting off bringing home sup-
plies could mean
stores run out of I
necessary items Editorial
before you get
what you need.
There are many important items that
everyone must have and then there are
extra supplies needed for those with
special needs.
Everyone should be prepare to sus-
tain themselves with food and water
for at least three days, perhaps even
seven days, without help from the out-
side world. Yes, help will come but
those bringing help must travel to get
to a particular site.
So stock up on non-perishable pack-
aged or canned foods and juices. Bring
in enough water so each person has
one gallon daily for three to seven
days. Prepare for the worst-case sce-
nario and then you're set.
When a hurricane hits, there is no
electricity, water and sewer.
With no electric you must have alter-
native methods of opening a can of
beans other than your electric can
opener. The same goes for cooking.
The traditional electric stove doesn't
work without electricity.
Stock up on items you can use to
wipe hands and faces without water.
Get batteries for the flashlights and
radio too. An extra one for the cell
phone would be good. Be sure you
have a battery-operated radio so you
can keep up with what's going on. A
weather radio may be a good invest-
ment.
It is also important to have a tradi-
tional phone in cases of a hurricane.
Cordless phones may be useless.

Oh, but for a few lines ...


2~T~ Niichse

The written word is a powerful
way to communicate. Words are
everywhere.
Words offer instruction, direction, in-
formation, comfort and inspiration.
Likewise, words can be hurtful,
alienate and bring heartbreak.
With the use of e-mail 24/7, many
people have taken to adding a little
personal sentiment in with their con-
tact information.
Janet Shelley, drama teacher at West
Point High School, lists the names of
the books that she's currently reading
at the bottom of her emails. As a
teacher, it is her job to encourage her
students to read and that's a subtle re-
minder of reading.
Of course now if Janet had just fin-
ished reading the book I read, "Alice in
Bed," it would probably raise some
eyebrows if she had posted that book
as one that she's reading.
As a society, we expect people to be-


have in the way we expect them to.
Teachers, deputies and preachers are
always supposed to be morally upright.
Admitting to reading 'Alice in Bed"
would not be the best way for a teacher
to go.
Remember though you can't always
judge a book by its cover or title in
this case.
In many cases, the closing on e-mail
goes along with the mission of the
cause.
Brad Nimmo, CEO of Habitat for Hu-
manity, has an interesting statement
on his emails. Well, several different
statements.
One line says, "Building homes in
partnership with God's people in
need." That pretty much says what
Habitat does.
Another line on his e-mail tells us
who should work as partners in help-
ing others,
"I was going to ask God why He al-
lowed people to live in poverty and
homelessness, but didn't for fear He
would ask me the same question," it
reads. That statement should give us
all a twinge of guilt and perhaps moti-
vate us to get up off our duffs and help
others.
And then finally he uses a Bible
scripture and quotes Ecclesiastes 9:10
- "Whatever your hand finds to do, do it
with all your might."
Would that statement be similar to the
old Jane Fonda line from her exercise

Good intentions

only as good as

the intended

f awards were given to people who
have the best of intentions, I
would be working on my accept-
ance speech right now. However, I
know that intentions are only as good
as the one who crafts the intention.
Recently, the Gracious Mistress of
the Parsonage needed to go and visit
her parents. This necessitated her
being away for five days. In her ab-
sence, 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 ab-
sence, I would have to do a lot of im-
provising but I did not think I needed
to bother her with such trivial infor-
mation while she was packing.
Finally, she was off and I, as they
say, was on.
The first thing I did was evaluate
my situation 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 intended to
use the time at my disposal for my
greatest pleasure.
After several moments of this, I was
exhausted, got a soda from the refrig-
erator, went to the back porch and re-
clined 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 There-
fore, 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 advantage.
I made it through the first day. Look-
ing 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 re-
frigerator 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 an-
other apple fritter and
went to bed. I would do
something not permitted
under normal circum-
stances; I would have a
snack in bed while watch-
ing television.
I do not know what hap-
pened. 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 morn-
ing. 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 fra-
grance 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
make itself." In that brief
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.

YOUR DENTAL
HEALTH

DISPLAYING
SENSITIVITY
If you have sensitive
teeth, you are not alone. It is
estimated that 40 million
Americans share your
discomfort. Fortunately, the
cause of most cases of tooth
sensitivity has been
identified, and the cure may
be as easy as modifying your
toothbrushing technique.
According to a nationwide
survey of 700 dentists,
aggressive brushing and
acidic foods and beverages
are the lending culprits when
it comes to tooth sensitivity,
which results from nerve
irritation. Other contributing
factors include the use of
certain toothpastes,
mouthwashes, and tooth
whitening products, as well
as cracked teeth, bulimia,
and acid reflux disease. A
switch to a desensitizing
toothpaste and a toothbrush
with softer bristles usually
helps relive the problem.
Are your teeth sensitive?
Our goal is to provide
optimal and comprehensive
care to all out patients. We
are confident that you will
notice the J.litt!!crc At the
office of MARK E.
HAMPTON, D.DS., we

philosophies, technology and
techniques with the proven
expertise that comes with a

P.S. If you drink acidic
soft drinks and fruit juices,
avoid brushing your teeth
immediately after drinking,
when enamel is most
vulnerable.
