When a person's heart
stops beating, CPR, if ad-
ministered correctly, can
mean the difference be-
tween life and death and
triple the victim's chances
of survival. However, only
one-third of people outside
a hospital setting actually
receive CPR, according to
the American Heart Asso-
ciation. That's why MCFR
and Ocala Regional Med-
ical Center have teamed-
up to provide free CPR
classes for citizens.

"Compressions and CPR
is a critical link to the
chain of survival in cardiac
arrest," Marion County
Fire Rescue's Medical Di-
rector, Dr. Frank Fraunfel-
ter said. "Everyone should
learn CPR to give others a
better chance of survival."

So you think you can pra ?

from her side of the room,
"I just can't believe this."
I tried to pretend I did
not hear it and went back
to my book.
"Of all the ridiculous
things in the world," she
said as though she were
talking to somebody other
than me. I pretended she
was and continued my
reading hoping that was
the last of her outbursts.
Then I heard, "Aren't you
listening to me?"
It was then I knew I had
to put my book down and

ignore and then some
things you better not ig-

the latter.
"What's got you all riled

Then drifting in the
background, I heard my
wife say, "Why do you sup-

Then it dawned me. She
was exactly right.
Why do people who do
not believe in God and do
not believe in prayer fight
so hard against them? Why
do they fear God? What are
they afraid about prayer?
As I mused on this, a
thought came tiptoeing
through the corridors of

my mind.
If those claiming to be
Christians feared God and
prayer as much as those
who are not Christians,
something would really
change in this country.
There would be a new reli-
gious paradigm, I assure
Take prayer for example.

Never in our country

Last week staff at the
Mlarion County's Growth
Management Department
added several more public
meetings to their previ-
ously published schedules
in regards to the county's
comprehensive plan.
For the last several
months staff from the Mlar-
ion County's Growth Mlan-
agement Department has
gathered input from resi-
dents about the county's
comprehensive plan in re-
gards to land use.
The plan developed
from those comments will
go before the Mlarion
County Commissioners, in
part, Wednesday evening,
July 28 at 6 p.m. The ex-

ception for that meeting
will be the Future Land
Use Element.
Future land for the
county will go before the
board on Thursday
evening, July 29 at 6 p.m.
The plan is to suggest a
vision of what residents
might want the county to
look like in 25 years.
The county, in its' plan, is
looking to expand the cate-
gory of Farmland Preser-
vation in the northwest
area of the county. High
density developments are
not allowed in farmland

dered if I was in Africa. In
a pasture on I saw zebras!
No, I wasn't seeing things
Smy 3-year-old great-
granddaughter was in the
car with me and said,
"Grandma, look at the ze-
bras!" Yes, there they were
grazing in the pasture.
When I walked up to the
fence, they came up to me
and just waited for their
picture to be taken. Did
you know that no animal
has a more distinctive coat
than the zebra? The stripes
on each animal are as
unique as fingerprints -no
two are exactly alike.
There are three species of
zebras and each has its
own general pattern, but
no two are alike. Zebras
are very social animals.
They like to graze together
The Burchell or Plains ze-
bras are the most common.
They live in small family
groups, but may combine
with other family groups to

form herds of thousands.
However, the family will
remain close to each other.
Lions and hyenas are the
main predators of the
zebra. I don't think the
herd on Northwest 80th Av-
enue will have to worry
about these predators.
Did you have an ice
cream cone or a dish of ice
cream on Sunday, the 18th?
That was "National Ice
Cream Day" In 1984, Pres-
ident Reagan declared
July as National Ice Cream
Month and the third Sun-
day of the month as Na-
tional Ice Cream Day. Ice
cream is a favorite food of
many of us. The treat was
introduced to the United
States by the Quaker
colonists. Ben Franklin,
George Washington, and

Thomas Jefferson enjoyed
their ice cream and served
it often. First Lady Dolly
Madison served ice cream
at the Inaugural Ball in
1813. The ice cream sun-
dae originated in the late
19th century. Several men
claimed to have created
the first sundae, but there
is no absolute evidence to
name the originator. In the
20th century, the ice cream
cone and the banana split
became popular. Ice cream
cones were served at the
World's Fair in St. Louis in
1904. During Prohibition,
the soda fountain became
very popular. For some, it
replaced the outlawed bars
and saloons. Chocolate,
vanilla, and strawberry
seem to be the most popu-
lar flavors of this treat, but

Seeing cows and horses are normal occurrences but
sometimes a zebra may be spotted too.

probably vanilla takes the
prize. Americans eat the
most ice cream of anyone
in the world. It is estimated
that Americans consume
about 15 quarts of ice
cream per person per year.
Did you know that Mar-
garet Thatcher (yes, the
former Prime Minister
from England) was on the
chemical research team
that discovered a method
of making soft ice cream?
This discovery led to the
famous Dairy Queen,
Carvel, and Tastee-Freeze.

Aside from restoring biting
and chewing capability to the
mouth, dental implants also
serve a cosmetic function. The
most obvious benefit to an
implant patient's appearance
is that the replacement tooth
fills in the gap left by the lost
tooth with a natural-looking
substitute. On a deeper level,
dental implants help patients
avert bone lose. Without
implants, missing teeth and
associated bone loss cause the
lower third of the face to
collapse and shrink inward.
As the anchoring portion of a
dental implant forms a strong
bond with the jaw, it

is the amount and density of

I'm not too much con-

object to prayer. After all,
there is no way under
heaven they can stop me
from praying. What l am con-

who say they believe in
prayer and yet have no evi-

In many regards, I am a
very practical person. I do
not make too many demands
from anybody. All I want to
know is that you are who you
say you are and you are
doing what you say you are
doing. Now, that is not too
much to ask.
Here is my challenge. I
will show you what my life is
with God, if you show me
what your life is without
God. Tell me where you

came from and l willtellyou
where I came from. I think
that is fair.
All we need in this country
are just a few people who re-

God in prayer.

your faults one to another,
and pray one for another,
that ye may be healed. The
effectual fervent prayer of a
righteous man availeth
much" (James 5:16).

Not everybody who prays
is really praying.
If these people really did
object to prayer, they would
keep their mouth shut. Nine
out of ten people who pray
are not really praying. Sure,
they are saying a few words,
maybe even quoting some
Scripture, but they are really
not praying and their prayer
never gets above the ceiling.
If one tenth of the prayers
prayed on any given Sunday
were answered, most of the
people praying would be
surprised. It seems, at least
to me, that the only people
who really believe in the
power of prayer are the peo-

entering her career choice.
In 1968, Bobbie and friend
went to Ringling Brothers
Circus. Their seats were
high up and far in the back.
Her friend had forgotten
her glasses. So the two ap-
proached the teller and
asked to exchange their
tickets for better seats. They
were told there were no
other seats available. As
they were leaving, a man
came and exchanged five
tickets. So, Bobbie went
back to the teller and ques-
tioned her: The teller called
for the publicity agent and
he graciously gave Bobbie
and her friend seats re-
served for VIPs. After the
show they were asked to
come back and see the cir-
cus train and meet some of
the performers. She kept in
touch with many of the per-
formers and asked to join
the circus. She was called
for an interview and called
to California where she got
the job. At the time, she was
working at Johns Hopkins
and gave her notice which
said, "I am quitting to go ride
elephants for a living.
She was chosen to be a
"bally girl." In this job, she
would dance and be in the
opening and closing pa-

rades and do aerial ballet. A
select few were chosen to
ride elephants and she be-
came one of the lucky ones.
She was trained for the
aerial ballet by the famous
and talented woman named
Antoinette Concello. An-
toinette became known as
the "greatest woman flyer of
all times." She was the first
woman to do the fabled
triple. Bobbie says, "You will
see her and her troupe in
many movies such as the
Greatest Show on Earth and
Trapeze." Bobbie told me
that her teacher had a diffi-
cult time with her as she
was afraid of heights. Bob-
bie knew that if she wanted
to ride the elephant she had
to do the aerial work. This
included climbing a rope to
hang by her ankle, be spun
around upside down and
doing other acrobatic moves
high in the air. Bobbie did
all this while conquering
her fear of heights. She
mainly rode two elephants
during her time with the cir-
cus. The elephants were
Jenny and Tigi. Bobbie tells
me that, "They were spec-
tacular animals and I often
spent my off time sitting
with them or riding them to
and from arenas, even if

there wasn't a special pa-
rade." Bobby said, "I was
lucky enough to perform in
center ring and performed
such acts as putting my leg
in the elephants' mouth to
be carried, lie down and let
the elephant put her foot on
my nose, sit on her neck
while she crawled over an-
other elephant. Then the
elephant would sit up on
her back legs and my fa-
vorite elephant performed a
head stand as I leaned back
somehow managing to smile
and stay on her." Bobbie's
story continues. "I adore the

Bobbie Holloway once was a"bally girl."She quit a good
job to ride elephants.

Have you ever gone
someplace and
started talking to
someone, and realize that
you have come from the
same area or you know
someone in common? I have
heard of residents at Stone
Creek who have found out
they went to the same high
school but did not know one
another until coming here.
They say "It is a small
Recently, Fitness Director
Linda Mann sponsored a
trip to the Two Tails Ranch,
better known as the ele-
phant farm. Many residents
signed up for various rea-
sons, but one resident, Bob-
bie Holloway, had a unique
reason for going to the farm.
She rode elephants for Rin-
gling Brothers Circus.
Her story is an interesting
one. She grew up wanting to
be in law enforcement, but
after high school decided
she wanted to travel before

elephants. Their intelli-
gence, their trust, their
many human-like traits all
made my bond with them
something so unique." She
worked for the circus for
only one and half years but
she says her memories are
still so vivid and unbeliev-

So this story becomes
more unbelievable when
Bobbie goes and visits the
elephant refuge. She told
me it is like a retirement
home for elephants. She
was thrilled to learn that the

mer, but we mistakenly
thought that was just a one-
time lively, fun evening
with some ladies demon-
strating that they could
learn the basic elements of
the Hawaiian hula dance.
My husband remarked to
me last year that the ladies
really did a very good job,
and I knew he was sincere
because Phil lived for
some 4 or 5 years in Hawaii
on two different occasions
a number of years ago be-
cause of his work. I asked
him what the difference is
between a "Hukilau" and a
"Luau" since I have heard
the song "Going to a Huki-
lau" many times and the
ladies were going to use
that music for the dancing
He told me that a "Huki-
lau" is a Hawaiian feast
where fish is the main en-
trde. A "Luau" is a feast
with a roasted pig. I won-
dered if one was more spe-
cial than the other, but he
said that, as far as he had
ever experienced, the
names just referred to the
type of meat served. He
added that they both fea-
tured hula dancing be-

cause of its significance to
the Hawaiian culture.
Fairfield's "LUAU" was
aptly named because the
Activities Committee made
up of Charlene Jarvis, Ann
Bruno, and Dee McNeil
provided pulled pork for
sandwiches while resi-
dents brought side dishes
and desserts that were pos-
itively delicious. The deco-
rations were colorful and
fanciful, the music in-
spired people to sway as
they went through the food
servicing lines, and spirits
were all light and happy so

far as anyone could tell.
After the meal, the group
was invited to have photos
taken in their colorful out-
fits. They could also choose
to stand behind a big board
with a native girl and guy
painted on it (with no faces
...just cutouts) and have a
comical photo taken to re-
member the night. Many
residents offered dona-
tions for the photos and
this money was given by
the photographers to the
Social Committee to help
with future expenses.
After the meal, Paula
LeBlanc offered to give in-
structions in hula dancing
for anyone willing to try.
She and Charlene Jarvis
donned grass skirts, beau-
tiful leis and bracelets, and
introduced someone re-
ferred to as the "Mystery
Hula Dancer" who had
a red tt cparticipadea i
"atentc gar and a
to the evening's entertain-
ment. That was when the
evening took on a whole
new atmosphere. The
"roars" of laughter could
probably have been heard
all the way up to the Ocala
Airport because the guest
was ... shall I say, "unex-
pectedly different."
Please enjoy the photos
of the mystery dancer who
endeavored to follow the
instructions but was con-
siderably less appealing
than the graceful ladies

Often an event does
hype given to it
ahead of time, but that was
not the case last Saturday
night, July 24, at the Fair-
field Village Social Activi-
ties monthly "potluck
dinner." Since my husband
and I are enjoying only our
second summer here in
FFS we have lots to learn
a out neighborhoodatradl
din;s wh eealtl
surprised wen we hear
that the summer months
almost always include a
luau with the extra treat of
some hula dancing. Of
course, we remembered
the event from last sum-

Bart and Judy Rich came
dressed for the luau in
bright colors with beauti-
ful smiles on their faces.

Not everyone has a
small weather sta-
tion in their back-
yard. Not everyone takes
pictures of clouds when
they're on vacation.
Ronald Goodman of
Ocala Palms does.
Even in his retirement,
his long-standing love affair
with weather continues.
Goodman, after all, is a re-
tired meteorologist.
Born in Gary, Ind., Good-
man and his family moved
to Miami when he was a
youngster. He got interested
in hurricanes and would
stay up late to watch Bob
Weaver, aka, "Weaver the
Weatherman," give the
weather on a local televi-
sion station.
When a neighbor took
him to work at Miami Inter-
national Airport and
showed him the weather
radar, Goodman's interest

grew even more.
As a teenager, he saved
money from his paper route
and odd jobs to buy a mo-
torcycle, but when his
mother vetoed that pur-
chase he got a weather sta-
tion instead.
He kept daily logs of the
weather all through his high
school years.
After graduation he
joined the service during
the era of the Vietnam War,
primarily to avoid the draft
and going into the Army.
He had met and visited
with the Air Force recruiter
and told them of in his in-
terest in weather and went
back to sign on the dotted
line. The Air Force re-
cruiter was at lunch so he
talked with the Marine re-
cruiter. Learning of his in-
terest in weather, the
Marine recruiter told him of
the different opportunities

and Health Administra tion (OSHA)
Shock and Electrocution
Never attach a generator directly to
the electrical system of structure (home,
office, trailer, etc.) unless a qualified
electrician has properly installed the
generator with a transfer switch.
Always plug electrical appliances di-
rectly into the generator using the manu-
facturer's supplied cords or extension
cords that are grounded (3-pronged). In-
spect the cord to make sure they are
fully intact and not damaged.
Never use frayed or damaged exten-
sion cords.
Keep a generator dry; do not use it in
the rain or in wet conditions. If needed,
protect a generator with a canopy.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Never use a generator indoors or in
enclosed spaces such as garages, crawl
spaces, and basements.
Make sure a generator has three to
four feet of clear space on all sides and
above it to ensure adequate ventilation.
Be cautious when using a generator
outdoors to ensure it is not placed near
doors, windows, and vents could allow
CO to enter and build up in occupied
If you or others show symptoms of CO
poisoning, dizziness, headaches, nausea,
tired-ness, get to fresh air immediately
and seek medical attention. Do no re-
enter the area until it is determined to
be safe by trained and properly

equipped personnel.
Fire Hazards
Generators become hot while running
and remain hot for long periods after
they are stopped. Generator fuels (gaso-
line, kerosene, etc.) can ignite when
spilled on hot engine parts.
Before refueling, shut down the gener-
ator and allow it to cool.
Gasoline and other generator fuels
should be stored and transported in ap-
proved con-tainers that are properly de-
signed and marked for their contents,
and vented.
Keep fuel containers away from flame
producing and heat generating devices
(such as the generator itself, water
heaters, cigarettes, lighters, and
matches). Do not smoke around fuel con-
Noise and Vibration Hazards
Generator engines vibrate and create
Excessive noise and vibration could
cause hearing loss and fatigue that may
affect job performance.

Generators can be useful
when a storm causes a
power outage, however it's
important to use extreme
caution when operating
one, said Tim Hastings, su-
pervisor of Member Serv-
ices for Central Florida
Electric Cooperative.
There are three main po-
tential dangers a generator
poses: fire hazard, electro-
cution, and carbon monox-
ide poisoning.
"Don't store gasoline in-
side the home," he said.
Fuel should be kept in a
safe location away from liv-
ing quarters.
Hastings said it's impor-
tant not exceed the rate of
capacity of the generator or
the extension cord. "People
do it all the time they plug
too many things into it and
it just won't handle it," he
said. "Generators were
never designed to run a
whole house well most
aren't designed to. But that

doesn't stop people from
"Make sure you always
turn it off when refueling,"
Hastings added. Generators
run hot, and the fuel can ig-
nite if it is not allowed to
cool down before adding
more fuel.
In inclement weather, it
can be tempting to bring the
generator indoors. But
keeping a generator in an
enclosed space can cause
carbon monoxide, or CO,
buildup. CO is a deadly
odorless gas. According the
Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, CO poison-
ing symptoms include
headache, dizziness, weak-
ness, nausea, vomiting,
chest pain, and confusion.
"Always use generators in
well ventilated areas,"
Hastings said.
It is also important that
when using generators out-
side, they are not placed too
close to windows or doors so
that CO can enter a build-

When setting up your gen-
erator, follow the proper in-
stallation guidelines,
cautioned Chiefland Police
Chief Robert Douglas. "Peo-
ple need to know that
there's a right and a wrong
way to hook one up," he
said. "If they're not careful,
they can surge power back
in to the grid. It puts all
those utility workers at risk
if they're not hooked up
Chief Douglas said gener-
ators are useful tools. "We
have a generator at the po-
lice department and fire de-
partment and it will also
run the water tower," he
said. "It's just good sense to
have one but make sure
it's hooked up right."
Hastings agreed.
"Never plug your genera-
tor into a wall outlet. This
can cause an electrocution
risk to utility workers,"
Hastings said.
If people have questions,
they should call their local
electric company.

ravine, or other low area. A tent
offers no protection from lighting.
H Wet ropes can make excellent
conductors. This is bad news
when it comes to light-ning activ-
ity. If you are mountain climbing
and see lightning, and can do so
safely, remove unnecessary ropes
extended or attached to you. If a
rope is extended across a moun-
tain face and lightning makes con-
tact with it, the electrical current
will likely travel along the rope,
especially if it is wet.
a Stay away from metal objects,
such as fences, poles and back-
packs. Metal is an ex-cellent con-
ductor. The current from a
lightning flash will easily travel
for long distances. If lightning is in
the immediate area, and there is
no safe location nearby, stay at
least 15 feet apart from other
members of your group so the
lightning won't travel between you
if hit. Keep your feet together and
sit on the ground out in the open.
Sitting or crouching on the ground
is not safe and should be a last re-
sort if an enclosed building or ve-
hicle is not available.
Advice for motorcyclist
and bicyclist
Protect yourself when on a bi-
cycle, motorcycle or dirt bike.
Carry a portable Weather Radio
or listen to commercial radio.
n If you see threatening skies in
the distance and you are passing

SIf you're driving when a thun-
derstorm starts, pull off the road-
way. A lightning flash hitting the
vehicle could startle you and
cause temporary blindness, espe-
cially at night.
HDo not use electronic devices
such as HA1V radios during a
thunderstorm. Lightning striking
the vehicle, especially the anten-
nas, could cause serious injury if
you are talking on the radio or
holding the microphone at the
time of the flash. Emergency offi-
cials such as police officers, fire-
fighters, security officers, etc.,
should use extreme caution using
radio equipment when lightning
is in the area. Your vehicle and its
electronics may be damaged if hit
by lightning.
SVehicles struck by lightning

are known to have flat tires the
next day. This occurs because the
lightning punctures tiny holes in
the tires.
Stuck outside?
Don't kid yourself you are not
safe outside. Get to a safe building
or vehicle is the best way to pro-
tect yourself.
If you cannot, these are last-re-
sort tips. These tips will not pre-
vent you from being hit, but could
slightly lessen the odds.
SDo not seek shelter under tall
isolated trees. The tree may help
you stay dry but will significantly
increase your risk of being struck
by lightning. Rain will not kill you,
but the lightning can!
SDo not seek shelter under
partially enclosed buildings

SStay away from tall, isolated
objects. Lightning typically strikes
the tallest object. That may be you
in an open field or clearing.
HKnow the weather patterns of
the area. For example, in moun-
tainous areas, thun-derstorms typ-
ically develop in the early
afternoon, so plan to hike early in
the day and be home by noon.
HKnow the weather forecast. If
there is a high chance of thunder-
storms, curtail your outdoor activ-
HDo not place your campsite in
an open field on the top of a hill or
on a ridge top. Keep your site
away from tall isolated trees or
other tall objects. If you are in a
forest, stay near a lower stand of
trees. If you are camping in an
open area, set up camp in a valley,

strikes the Earth 20 mil-lion times.
H The air near a lightning strike
is heated to 50,000o F hotter
