Cohn Construction 0008LHB Answers on page 5 T he First Friday gathering was enjoyed by many this month. It was a fun evening visiting with friends and neighbors. Remember next month we will gather at the clubhouse on Aug. 5. What a fabulous Fourth of July! About 50 residents gathered at the clubhouse for a delicious indoor picnic. Ron Gartman really did a great job cooking the corn on the cob in his large outdoor cooker. The corn was scrumptious! We had quite an array of foods chicken, many salads, and of course desserts of watermelon, chocolate brownies, strawberry pie, cookies, and many other items. There was a very festive atmosphere for the day as patriotic music was playing in the background. Before the meal began all those who served in the military services were recognized and applauded for their sacrifice to protect our country. During the month of July you dont need to feel guilty about eating ice cream! Since the year 1984, July has been designated as National Ice Cream Month. We can thank Ronald Reagan for this designation. He also appointed the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day. President Reagan stressed that there are nutritional benefits to eating ice cream and the special day and month should be observed with appropriate ceremonies and activities, like eating some ice cream. We Americans eat more ice cream than anyone else in the world we know whats good for us! The state of Missouri claims to be the birthplace of the ice cream cone. They claim that it was first introduced at the St. Louis 1904 Worlds Fair. Wisconsin claims to be the Quail Meadow Pat Tobin A fabulous Fourth is celebrated Carolyn Slocumb Please see QUAIL Page 3 Live entertainment at evening marketBeat the summer heat and enjoy an evening stroll at the Circle Square Commons Farmers Market on The Town Square every Thursday from 5 pm to 8 pm beginning July 7.

This is something that I have been told is acceptable occasionally as a writer for the Messenger. Let me hasten to say that many of you may agree and many may disagree, but this is what has happened among some of my friends and me this last week. These friends asked that I not use their names; but I very openly write this from my heart and conscience. Several of us had become almost addicted to the live action of the past 40+ days as the Anthony trial was broadcast daily over all of the Orlando radio and television stations. My husband listened only to opening arguments and realized that he had sat in one chair for over 4 hours without changing channels. Philip and I watch NCIS. Criminal Minds, and lots of other programs that deal with wrapping up a criminal investigation neatly in a one hour program; so I am using that as an excuse for getting caught up in the live action of the case of a darling little girl who died so tragically. The fact that she looked like at least 2 of our granddaughters as toddlers did nothing to dissuade us from being caught in the frenzy, though it sometimes made things harder for us to watch without exaggerated emotions. Some of my friends here in Fairfield Village seemed just as concerned, and we have discussed our sadness over the entire scenario several different times. Some of us had one opinion; some of us had another opinion; and some of us changed opinions over and over as the trial progressed. Needless to say, the one thing upon which we agreed was that we could not/would not have been jurors. Feeling for the citizens of Pinellas County chosen for the jury has been universal and quite real. Now the verdict has been given, and some people, according to the news reports, are irate about the outcome. What my friends and I have decided unanimously now is the following: The job was a seemingly thankless one for the jurors for the most part; and we disagree with that. We totally appreciate what the entire group gave of themselves for the justice system. We feel that most people would have been somewhat more accepting of the verdict had the jury pondered a bit longer than they did; but they were in unanimous agreement and how often can anyone get 12 people to agree on anything? Whether we agree or not, the case is over forever. We pray that some good will come from all the media coverage for the past 3 years. The Caylees Law, which would make the failure to report a child missing in a timely manner a crime, could be just such a good thing. We hope that Casey Anthony has the good judgment (?) or good advice that she not try to make a financial profit from the tragedy of her daughters death whether that be in the form of interviews, books, and/or movie deals. (This we unanimously doubt very seriously!) We sincerely hope that the general public will let this story end for the time being (with the exception of the Caylees Law prospect) so that the entire Anthony family can be allowed to heal and try to move on. There is no good to come from anyone trying to play God by passing judgment for something about which we have no real undeniable knowledge. We, the public, should honor this little girls life by realizing how very precious every single moment is not only with our darling grandchildren, but with anyone who is significant in our lives. Caylee Anthony is an angel in heaven to many people. Continuing to be judgmental and negative in our comments is not an acceptable way to behave about such an innocent and beautiful life. Casey Anthony must live with this terrible incident for the rest of her life. How she chooses to honor or perhaps not honor her daughters life is not the publics place to decide. (I choose not to use the word dishonor deliberately because of all the connotations and associations of that word.) We, as a group, have promised each other not to purchase or pay in any way for the mother or the family to financially profit from this awful situation. We hope that the readers of this piece are encouraged to become introspective and deeply thoughtful about how we can become better people ourselves thereby doing our small part to honor the short life of Caylee Marie Anthony. The 15 neighbors who helped me with this article are male and female, fairly young and also very wisely mature. We sincerely hope that we have not offended any readers by discussing (in print) what we have discussed in our community. These people are a beautiful, genuinely kind representative group of the people who live here in Fairfield Village a lively place filled with lovely (introspective) people. Opinion: Pondering the Casey Anthony saga Priscilla Geissal first state to have the ice cream sundae. This is attributed to a way of getting around the Blue Laws that prohibited the sale of ice cream on Sundays. Other places also claim to be the birthplace of the ice cream sundae Buffalo, N.Y., Ithaca, N.Y., and Evanston, Ill. There is no documentation to verify these claims. Dont forget to eat some ice cream on Sunday, July 17. After all, President Reagan said we should do this as a way of celebration. Mark your calendars for the Jimmy Buffett Party that will be at the clubhouse on Aug. 13. Tickets are available from Lil Cari, Theresa Yoders, and Pat Talley. This is the second year for this celebration. Just ask anyone who attended last year and you will find out it is an event you dont want to miss. QUAILcontinued from Page 2 Ron Gartman Muggles and wizards alike are invited to experience Harry Potter for free in downtown Ocala at the historic Marion Theatre on Friday, July 15. Magnolia Avenue between Broadway and Fort King Streets will be transformed by a wave of Harry Potters magic wand into Diagon Alley in the book and movie that Harry Potter and friends visited on trips outside their school Hogwarts. The event, sponsored by the Save the Marion Theater Group, starts at 5:30 p.m. The public will enter Diagon Alley at the intersection of Broadway and Magnolia and proceed down the street past shops selling butter beer and other Diagon Alley favorites. Tickets will be available in $1 increments to buy samples of these Harry Potter replica foods served by four or five downtown restaurants and shops, including Harrys, OMalleys, Mojo Grille, and Ocala Chocolates. The entrance to the Marion Theatre will also succumb to Harrys wand as the outside marquee is transformed into the entrance to Hogwarts itself, complete with a giant-size pair of Harry Potters eye glasses on top of the marquee. Participants can enter the costume contest representing any of the Harry Potter characters, with a $50 prize for the best costume. Following the Friday night street festival on Saturday morning, the Marion Theatre will welcome children whose tickets have been purchased by local benefactors so that they may attend a special Harry Potter showing at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 16. Efforts are being made to raise the necessary funds to purchase these tickets, which will be available to many local agencies serving underprivileged children and youth, such as Boys and Girls Club, Arnette House, Pace Center for Girls, Domestic Violence Center, Salvation Army, Ocala and Marion County Parks and Recreation, Camp Kiwanis, and many others. July 14 show times: HP Deathly Hallows Part I at 9 p.m., Part 2 at midnight. July 15 showtimes will be released soon. Harry Potter coming to downtown Happenings Trash to Treasure vendors being soughtThe Church of the Advent, 11251 S.W.

This is something that I have been told is acceptable occasionally as a writer for the Messenger. Let me hasten to say that many of you may agree and many may disagree, but this is what has happened among some of my friends and me this last week. These friends asked that I not use their names; but I very openly write this from my heart and conscience. Several of us had become almost addicted to the live action of the past 40+ days as the Anthony trial was broadcast daily over all of the Orlando radio and television stations. My husband listened only to opening arguments and realized that he had sat in one chair for over 4 hours without changing channels. Philip and I watch NCIS. Criminal Minds, and lots of other programs that deal with wrapping up a criminal investigation neatly in a one hour program; so I am using that as an excuse for getting caught up in the live action of the case of a darling little girl who died so tragically. The fact that she looked like at least 2 of our granddaughters as toddlers did nothing to dissuade us from being caught in the frenzy, though it sometimes made things harder for us to watch without exaggerated emotions. Some of my friends here in Fairfield Village seemed just as concerned, and we have discussed our sadness over the entire scenario several different times. Some of us had one opinion; some of us had another opinion; and some of us changed opinions over and over as the trial progressed. Needless to say, the one thing upon which we agreed was that we could not/would not have been jurors. Feeling for the citizens of Pinellas County chosen for the jury has been universal and quite real. Now the verdict has been given, and some people, according to the news reports, are irate about the outcome. What my friends and I have decided unanimously now is the following: The job was a seemingly thankless one for the jurors for the most part; and we disagree with that. We totally appreciate what the entire group gave of themselves for the justice system. We feel that most people would have been somewhat more accepting of the verdict had the jury pondered a bit longer than they did; but they were in unanimous agreement and how often can anyone get 12 people to agree on anything? Whether we agree or not, the case is over forever. We pray that some good will come from all the media coverage for the past 3 years. The Caylees Law, which would make the failure to report a child missing in a timely manner a crime, could be just such a good thing. We hope that Casey Anthony has the good judgment (?) or good advice that she not try to make a financial profit from the tragedy of her daughters death whether that be in the form of interviews, books, and/or movie deals. (This we unanimously doubt very seriously!) We sincerely hope that the general public will let this story end for the time being (with the exception of the Caylees Law prospect) so that the entire Anthony family can be allowed to heal and try to move on. There is no good to come from anyone trying to play God by passing judgment for something about which we have no real undeniable knowledge. We, the public, should honor this little girls life by realizing how very precious every single moment is not only with our darling grandchildren, but with anyone who is significant in our lives. Caylee Anthony is an angel in heaven to many people. Continuing to be judgmental and negative in our comments is not an acceptable way to behave about such an innocent and beautiful life. Casey Anthony must live with this terrible incident for the rest of her life. How she chooses to honor or perhaps not honor her daughters life is not the publics place to decide. (I choose not to use the word dishonor deliberately because of all the connotations and associations of that word.) We, as a group, have promised each other not to purchase or pay in any way for the mother or the family to financially profit from this awful situation. We hope that the readers of this piece are encouraged to become introspective and deeply thoughtful about how we can become better people ourselves thereby doing our small part to honor the short life of Caylee Marie Anthony. The 15 neighbors who helped me with this article are male and female, fairly young and also very wisely mature. We sincerely hope that we have not offended any readers by discussing (in print) what we have discussed in our community. These people are a beautiful, genuinely kind representative group of the people who live here in Fairfield Village a lively place filled with lovely (introspective) people. Opinion: Pondering the Casey Anthony saga Priscilla Geissal first state to have the ice cream sundae. This is attributed to a way of getting around the Blue Laws that prohibited the sale of ice cream on Sundays. Other places also claim to be the birthplace of the ice cream sundae Buffalo, N.Y., Ithaca, N.Y., and Evanston, Ill. There is no documentation to verify these claims. Dont forget to eat some ice cream on Sunday, July 17. After all, President Reagan said we should do this as a way of celebration. Mark your calendars for the Jimmy Buffett Party that will be at the clubhouse on Aug. 13. Tickets are available from Lil Cari, Theresa Yoders, and Pat Talley. This is the second year for this celebration. Just ask anyone who attended last year and you will find out it is an event you dont want to miss. QUAILcontinued from Page 2 Ron Gartman Muggles and wizards alike are invited to experience Harry Potter for free in downtown Ocala at the historic Marion Theatre on Friday, July 15. Magnolia Avenue between Broadway and Fort King Streets will be transformed by a wave of Harry Potters magic wand into Diagon Alley in the book and movie that Harry Potter and friends visited on trips outside their school Hogwarts. The event, sponsored by the Save the Marion Theater Group, starts at 5:30 p.m. The public will enter Diagon Alley at the intersection of Broadway and Magnolia and proceed down the street past shops selling butter beer and other Diagon Alley favorites. Tickets will be available in $1 increments to buy samples of these Harry Potter replica foods served by four or five downtown restaurants and shops, including Harrys, OMalleys, Mojo Grille, and Ocala Chocolates. The entrance to the Marion Theatre will also succumb to Harrys wand as the outside marquee is transformed into the entrance to Hogwarts itself, complete with a giant-size pair of Harry Potters eye glasses on top of the marquee. Participants can enter the costume contest representing any of the Harry Potter characters, with a $50 prize for the best costume. Following the Friday night street festival on Saturday morning, the Marion Theatre will welcome children whose tickets have been purchased by local benefactors so that they may attend a special Harry Potter showing at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 16. Efforts are being made to raise the necessary funds to purchase these tickets, which will be available to many local agencies serving underprivileged children and youth, such as Boys and Girls Club, Arnette House, Pace Center for Girls, Domestic Violence Center, Salvation Army, Ocala and Marion County Parks and Recreation, Camp Kiwanis, and many others. July 14 show times: HP Deathly Hallows Part I at 9 p.m., Part 2 at midnight. July 15 showtimes will be released soon.

Cohn Construction 0008LHB Answers on page 5 T he First Friday gathering was enjoyed by many this month. It was a fun evening visiting with friends and neighbors. Remember next month we will gather at the clubhouse on Aug. 5. What a fabulous Fourth of July! About 50 residents gathered at the clubhouse for a delicious indoor picnic. Ron Gartman really did a great job cooking the corn on the cob in his large outdoor cooker. The corn was scrumptious! We had quite an array of foods chicken, many salads, and of course desserts of watermelon, chocolate brownies, strawberry pie, cookies, and many other items. There was a very festive atmosphere for the day as patriotic music was playing in the background. Before the meal began all those who served in the military services were recognized and applauded for their sacrifice to protect our country. During the month of July you dont need to feel guilty about eating ice cream! Since the year 1984, July has been designated as National Ice Cream Month. We can thank Ronald Reagan for this designation. He also appointed the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day. President Reagan stressed that there are nutritional benefits to eating ice cream and the special day and month should be observed with appropriate ceremonies and activities, like eating some ice cream. We Americans eat more ice cream than anyone else in the world we know whats good for us! The state of Missouri claims to be the birthplace of the ice cream cone. They claim that it was first introduced at the St. Louis 1904 Worlds Fair.
