S everal weeks ago, I wrote an article featuring the upcoming Fathers Day gathering at Fairfield Villages Clubhouse the Saturday before Fathers Day. I missed the fun because I was visiting in Virginia, but I promised our residents that I would follow up with photos from that evening. Well I am keeping my promise and wishing that I could have been there to be a part of the honoring of paternal units as our children refer to fathers. That is just a Geissalism as we call them. It is meant in the best possible connotation by the way. :>)) The photos along with this piece are some of the most significant to the two lovely ladies who were the hostesses for the event. Cecile Gautier and Paula LeBlanc thoroughly enjoyed all the preparations and the time to be somewhat sentimental about their own papas as many Canadians call their fathers. Personally, I doubt that I would be anywhere close to the person I am if it were not for my paternal unit who was my adopted father. Charles Edwin (Ed) Morris, Sr., probably the best gentleman I have ever known (other than my husband) adopted me, my sister and brother and treated us with the same affection as his natural son Ed, Jr. No one has had a greater influence on my spiritual life than he and no one could have been a better role model. He was nearly perfect in my 15 year old eyes when he married my mom (and the whole family a package deal!) I was 15, my sister Mary Ruth was 12 and my baby brother, Jimmy, was 3. Eddie, our new brother was my age, and we graduated high school together in Lindale, Ga, from Pepperell High School some 52 years ago this year. I will never forget one thing that my dad taught me above all other things .No one ever got to be one inch taller by stepping on someone else. That is so profound I knew he meant treat others with respect but he said it in his own North Georgia colloquial way. Ed Morris was a quietly religious man, the first divorced ordained deacon in First Baptist Rome, Ga., history. He treated my mother like a real lady, which had not been in her history sadly. She grew up as a foster child and married very young because it was expected at that time 1940. Together Mary and Ed Morris spent almost 50 years after they married at the age of 35. They both died within 5 months of each other. I believe that life was not worth living to either of them without their other half. I could write a tribute to dads, moms, marriage, family, Christian Love, generosity, hard work, devotion to duty almost anything worthwhile and I could use my mom and dad as examples. I sincerely hope that someday our children might have good thoughts about our parenting like I have about my mom and dad. The thing about my dad was that he did not have to be my dad. He chose to be he formally adopted all three of us Morris kids and was equally proud of all of us. When he passed away five years ago, his greatgranddaughter our grand Emily Esposito, was only 13 years old; however she insisted on giving a public eulogy at his funeral with no notes just genuine feeling for the man we all called Dandy. I hardly remember what she said, but I saw the beautiful tears shed by a young lady who was molded by the love of a great man her great grandfather. I wish we all could have that kind of loving upbringing. (By the way, he lived 420 miles away from her, but they talked on the phone at least weekly and saw each other as often as possible.) She knew how much he loved his Peanut and she loved her Dandy just as much. Lots of Fairfield folks have wonderful relationships with their families. I wish some of them would call me (352-694-6251) or email me at pbgeissal@aol.com so that I could interview them and let others know more about our lively place filled with lovely people. Have a great week.

In the center is Grace Schore, 8, from Stancils Corner on U.S. 27 at Northwest 60th Street. On the left is Alex Torres, 5, and on the right is William Torres, 8, who are both from Majestic Oaks. An Ocala man was killed in a one-car accident on July 15 shortly after 8 p.m. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Jose R. Vazquez, 30, was driving south on Southwest 60th Avenue near the crossroads intersection of 52nd Street, south of the post office, at a high rate of speed. Vazquez lost control negotiating a curve and over-corrected, traveling counterclockwise across the northbound lines onto the road shoulder. The right rear door struck a large concrete utility pole and rotated clockwise on the east shoulder until its front end collided with two wire livestock fences. The vehicle caught fire and became engulfed in flames with the driver still inside the vehicle. Marion County Fire Rescue responded along with the Highway Patrol. According to the report, he was wearing a seatbelt. The Highway Patrol was still on the scene mid-morning the next day. Jim Clark E DITOR The crowd was small but vocal Thursday night as Marion County planners held a public hearing on the scenic road situation in the county, including the proposed master plan. Almost all speakers were in favor of expanding the scenic road designations in the county, and one went so far as to propose that the process be taken away from county commissioners. Justin Ryan, transportation planner for the countys Growth Management Departments Planning Division, conducted the meeting, which was originally scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m., but adjourned shortly after 7 after all those who wished to speak had been heard. Only 13 members of the public attended. The most radical proposal came from Steve Ellis of Southwest 75th Terrace, who suggested that decisions on scenic roads be removed from the county commissioners lap. He proposed a ranking by a committee of the recommended scenic roads, and that the top roads on the list be submitted to the voters in a referendum. That would take the political nature away. Commissioners recently decided to remove some roads from the list, with the most controversial being part of Shady Road, also known as County Road 475A and, in some places, Southwest 27th Avenue. Darlene Weesner, who said she started the scenic road efforts in 1985, said she was very, very concerned with recent actions. She pointed out the advantage to Man killed in accident on SW 60th Scenic road hearing draws small group Please see ROADS Page 4 In memoriam Pauline Moore, former inside salesperson and office coordinator of the West Marion Messenger and South Marion Citizen, died Friday, July 15, 2011. As of press time, no funeral arrangements had been announced. By John Terry S PECIALTOTHEM ESSENGER Blaise Ingoglia from Government Gone Wild gave a motivational presentation on our country's debt and deficit. The title of this Power Point presentation was "The Tea Party Edition: Government is Broken." It was chilling to see the verifiable numbers from government sources found on the Internet. There is no doubt that the current outof -control borrowing and spending by our elected officials, will destroy this country, if allowed to continue. Deficit is simply defined as more money going out than coming in. Debt is a combination of the public debt (what federal government is borrowing from other countries) and intra-governmental debt (what federal government is borrowing within America). Including unfunded liabilities (i.e., Social Security, pensions, Medicare and Medicaid), America's current debt is over $114 trillion. Our federal government, supposedly working for us, is spending $2.8 million a minute and $4.1 billion a day. Every individual in this country, no matter their age, owes $46,357 in unfunded liabilities. If this continues, in a mere 10 years, our debt will be $25.1 trillion more than our GDP and also more than the GDP of all the countries in the world combined. Besides the borrowing and spending, waste and fraud are rampant; and never trust the government's forecast of cost. It is always underestimated, runs out of money after partial completion, then asks for more. Two examples: Boston's Big Dig was forecast to cost $2.6 B; in reality, the cost was $14.6 B. The parking lot for the Kennedy Center was projected to be $28 M; the actual cost was $88 M. After Katrina, 900,000 of the 2.5 million applicants for disaster relief were found to be fraudulent. Many examples of waste were shown, but what could be more wasteful than to pay $1 M of our money to put poems in zoos? The bottom line is that our debt is the next security threat via Financial Warfare. China, Japan, the U. K., and almost every country on earth own our bonds; all they have to do is foreclose. Not a shot or a missile would have to be fired. John Terry is a member of Tea Party Solutions of Ocala. Government Gone Wild speaker visits local Tea Party Solutions Fairfield Village Fairfields belated Fathers Day follow-up A group of Fairfield residents hold the photos of their fathers as they honor these men's memories. Paula LeBlanc danced with Don Ouellette to the tune of "O! My PaPa," one of Eddie Fisher's hit tunes and one meant to honor all fathers past, present, and future. Priscilla Geissal The photos brought to the gathering honoring fathers during Father's Day weekend in June were a tribute to gentlemen who made their personal mark in their children's history. The Father's Day cake provided for Fairfield residents at the Father's Day celebration earlier last month.

Michel was the editor of the West Marion Messenger who got me involved in reporting the news from Quail Meadow. As I recall, she asked if I could write an article about the community and how we felt about the closing of Northwest 35th Street at 44th Avenue. That conversation took place at the Marion County commissioners hearing. At Michels urging, the Quail Meadow article has continued. Michel is often spotted in our community looking for news items. Michel will still be with the Messenger, but working in the office. So, thank you, Michel for your advice and encouragement over the past several years Im sure you will continue to hear from me! Welcome Jim Clark. Shuttle launch Did any of you go to Titusville to watch the last launch of Atlantis? Normally, we can just stand in our yards and see the shuttle, but not this time. July 8, 2011 is a date that many people will remember. This is the date marking the final launch for NASAs fleet of shuttles. This was the 33rd flight for Atlantis. Construction of the Atlantis began on March 3, 1980, in Palmdale, California. It arrived at Kennedy Space Center on April 9, 1985, for final preparations for a launch. The maiden voyage took place on Oct. 3, 1985, with a classified payload for the U.S. Department of Defense. Atlantis was named after the two-masted boat that served as the primary research vessel for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts. The crew from this boat used the first electronic sounding devices to map the ocean floor. Titusville and the surrounding area will miss all the excitement surrounding Kennedy Space Center. I had the privilege of a private tour of the Vertical Assembly Building many years ago. I was teaching school in Titusville in the 1960s when we still had Cape Canaveral and NASA was just starting the space program. All teachers in Titusville were invited for a tour of the center. That is a trip I will never forget. The long-time residents of the area really protested when the name Cape Canaveral was changed to Cape Kennedy. This was done late in 1963. Many years later the Cape Canaveral name was restored and the launch location was designated as Kennedy Space Center. If youre looking for something to do, I highly recommend a trip to Kennedy Space Center. Jimmy Buffett Dont forget to make your reservations for the Jimmy Buffett Party.

These classes were taught by members of the Culinary Arts Club, and from the response of the classes, the club is looking into doing more in the fall. Each class was only $5. The first class was taught by Chef Debbie Parson. It was titled Parmesan Crisps. It is a simple but elegant and tasty snack or appetizer. Debbie allowed participants to make the crisps after demonstrating. Hands-on learning is the best. Wine was served with these delicious treats. The second class was taught by George Kaufer. George demonstrated different cuts that can be carved from a beef tenderloin and shared a recipe for tenderloin tips. George informed participants about the USDA grading system and how to select cuts of beef at the grocery store. The class got to savor tenderloin tips. George also included how to select, sharpen and maintain kitchen knives. George told me that his father was master butcher. The third class was titled easy egg rolls. It was taught by Larry Handley. Larry took the class step by step through the process of making egg rolls and the exact temperature for frying. He informed the class of where products can be purchased, and he shared information about Asia Foods, Inc. on 27th Avenue in Ocala. We got to taste the egg rolls along with a white wine and we were able to make two egg rolls to take home. Larry explained how egg rolls can be frozen as his recipe makes 24. They were delicious! If you enjoy cooking and would like to learn how to cook something new, be on the look-out for upcoming classes in the fall. Some members of the Culinary Arts Club will be making Chicken Satay (Satay or sate, is a dish of marinated, skewered and grilled meats, served with a sauce.) for the July 15th event at the Reunion Center. They will be prepping food on Thursday and cooking on Friday. I am attaching the recipe they are using if you are unable to attend the July 15th function. This recipe was found by President, Harvey Paskin. Enjoy! Chicken Satay Ingredients: 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/2 cup lemon or lime juice 1 tbsp. light brown sugar 1 tbsp. red curry powder 1 tbsp. hot Madras curry powder 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp. chili garlic paste (or use a full teaspoon for some serious kick.) 1 lb. chicken breast tenderloins, cut in half lengthwise.

never diminishes us it only enlarges our own blessing. Maybe when we say our prayers, if we are praying people, we could remember sweet little Caylee Marie Anthony and those who are suffering so greatly because of her loss. We all know that someone was responsible for her death; however many who loved her had nothing to do with that and suffer every day because of their loss. I say, Let God judge the guilty, and comfort those who are innocent. If you agree or disagree, I challenge you to write to the Messenger or to the Citizen. Maybe we could encourage each other to be more caring people right in this very moment in our own little community. I know that there are great people who live in Fairfield Village, but sometimes they get overshadowed by the ones who are not so easy to get to know. My hope is that we all start to think (and feel) for others as we would like to have them do for us. Think that is what my mom taught me as the Golden Rule and it still works for me. Thanks for reading and have a great week. Priscilla Geissal S PECIALTOTHEM ESSENGER L ast week the Messenger printed an opinion article from a group of my neighbors and me in Fairfield Village. Our title used the name Caylee .not Casey Anthony. We did not know that the title was going to be changed until we saw the paper ourselves. Somehow our main premise was defeated substantially by the use of the mothers name in the title not that of the darling child which was our concern. We would like to explain our position again with the permission of the new editor, Jim Clark. Our title used Caylees name because her memory is important to us. Whatever happens to her mother from this point on is of little or no concern to us. The jury decided and that is that! Whether we agree or disagree, the justice system has prevailed, and we should leave it at that. We do not intend to give her mother any more publicity even in an article title because that defeats our purpose. What we were encouraging was for anyone with important people in our lives and that is almost everyone to become increasingly aware of the significance of every moment of every day. We all look forward to holidays; but they are no more memorable than Aug. 9 or April 28 or July 1, of every single year. When I was teaching American Literature at Model High School in Rome, Georgia, (for 33+ years) I encouraged all my students to study very carefully the play, Our Town, by Thornton Wilder. In this play, a young woman dies in childbirth and meets the narrator of the play to look back briefly at her life. He offers her the opportunity to relive (supposedly) one day of her life before she moves on to eternity. She chooses her 12th birthday and can hardly bear to look at her family when they were all so young and happy. Finally she asks the narrator, (perhaps not the exact words here) Does anyone really appreciate lifeevery single day? His answer: Some-poets and philosophers maybe. Well, I am neither a poet nor a philosopher, but I am a mom, grandmom, greatgrandmom, wife, sister, friend .etc. I learned a great deal by teaching that play to my 11th grade students. What I gained was probably more than what they gained, but many of them told me that it changed their attitudes about life. (Realistically, that lasted about a day and a half for most teens, probably.) However, I know it mattered to several because their parents talked to me about it, and it meant something to the parents as well. You may think I am off the subject, but I am not. I see the life of Caylee Anthony as another reason for all of us to care not only for our own children, but also to be really concerned about children that are not really our responsibility and every single day. That is not just children that includes those who need or ask for our help because they are not able to do everything for themselves. Older (or more mature) adults who live alone should be our concern as well. My family makes it a point to check up on those we know who live alone and might not ask for help when they really need it. Sometimes we have found an urgent situation and were able to be of help. That is a blessing as far as we are concerned because who are we if we cannot be good to one another? My family is so blessed because we are such a very big group, and we all do care for and about each other. Many people I have met here in Florida have no one absolutely no one and that breaks my heart. God loves all of us equally but some of us have received much more tangibly than others. My husband and I live on very limited income. We have to budget carefully; but we have the assurance that we have family to back us up if something tragic were to happen. Not only would they help financially, they always help us emotionally and spiritually. We have nine children (a blended family) with a total of 53 children, grands, great grands, along with their spouses. How could one put a value on that??? No Way!!! If we did not have free long distance, there is no telling what our phone bill would be. What I am saying several different ways is that those of us who are so blessed should be happy to try to pass those blessings along to others.

These classes were taught by members of the Culinary Arts Club, and from the response of the classes, the club is looking into doing more in the fall. Each class was only $5. The first class was taught by Chef Debbie Parson. It was titled Parmesan Crisps. It is a simple but elegant and tasty snack or appetizer. Debbie allowed participants to make the crisps after demonstrating. Hands-on learning is the best. Wine was served with these delicious treats. The second class was taught by George Kaufer. George demonstrated different cuts that can be carved from a beef tenderloin and shared a recipe for tenderloin tips. George informed participants about the USDA grading system and how to select cuts of beef at the grocery store. The class got to savor tenderloin tips. George also included how to select, sharpen and maintain kitchen knives. George told me that his father was master butcher. The third class was titled easy egg rolls. It was taught by Larry Handley. Larry took the class step by step through the process of making egg rolls and the exact temperature for frying. He informed the class of where products can be purchased, and he shared information about Asia Foods, Inc. on 27th Avenue in Ocala. We got to taste the egg rolls along with a white wine and we were able to make two egg rolls to take home. Larry explained how egg rolls can be frozen as his recipe makes 24. They were delicious! If you enjoy cooking and would like to learn how to cook something new, be on the look-out for upcoming classes in the fall. Some members of the Culinary Arts Club will be making Chicken Satay (Satay or sate, is a dish of marinated, skewered and grilled meats, served with a sauce.) for the July 15th event at the Reunion Center. They will be prepping food on Thursday and cooking on Friday. I am attaching the recipe they are using if you are unable to attend the July 15th function. This recipe was found by President, Harvey Paskin. Enjoy! Chicken Satay Ingredients: 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/2 cup lemon or lime juice 1 tbsp. light brown sugar 1 tbsp. red curry powder 1 tbsp. hot Madras curry powder 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 tsp. chili garlic paste (or use a full teaspoon for some serious kick.) 1 lb. chicken breast tenderloins, cut in half lengthwise. Method: Add peanut butter, soy sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, curry powder, chili paste and garlic together in a medium mixing bowl and whisk together until smooth. Pour over chicken breast tenderloins in an airtight container and refrigerate for at least three hours, overnight is better. Soak 12-18 bamboo skewCulinary Arts Club sponsors three different classes ers in water for at least 30 minutes before preparation to prevent burning over flame. Preheat gas grill or light charcoal grill. If using a grill pan, place over low heat. Slide a skewer through the center of each tenderloin. (You may reserve marinade and simmer for 20 minutes, then allow to cool if desired, or discard.) Place over direct heat on grill, or cook on grill pan. Cook in batches, approximately 3 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through, turning often. Serve with reserved peanut marinade or a fresh batch of peanut sauce for dipping. Ingredients 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (3) 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/2 cup lemon or lime juice 1 tablespoon brown sugar 2 tablespoons curry powder 2 cloves garlic, chopped (minced) 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (omit) 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves cubed Directions 1.In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, curry powder, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Place the chicken breasts in the marinade and refrigerate. Let the chicken marinate at least 2 hours, overnight is best. 2.Preheat a grill to high heat. 3.Weave the chicken onto skewers, then grill for 5 minutes per side. or cook on grill pan. Cook in batches, approximately 3 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through, turning often.

Michel was the editor of the West Marion Messenger who got me involved in reporting the news from Quail Meadow. As I recall, she asked if I could write an article about the community and how we felt about the closing of Northwest 35th Street at 44th Avenue. That conversation took place at the Marion County commissioners hearing. At Michels urging, the Quail Meadow article has continued. Michel is often spotted in our community looking for news items. Michel will still be with the Messenger, but working in the office. So, thank you, Michel for your advice and encouragement over the past several years Im sure you will continue to hear from me! Welcome Jim Clark. Shuttle launch Did any of you go to Titusville to watch the last launch of Atlantis? Normally, we can just stand in our yards and see the shuttle, but not this time. July 8, 2011 is a date that many people will remember. This is the date marking the final launch for NASAs fleet of shuttles. This was the 33rd flight for Atlantis. Construction of the Atlantis began on March 3, 1980, in Palmdale, California. It arrived at Kennedy Space Center on April 9, 1985, for final preparations for a launch. The maiden voyage took place on Oct. 3, 1985, with a classified payload for the U.S. Department of Defense. Atlantis was named after the two-masted boat that served as the primary research vessel for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in Massachusetts. The crew from this boat used the first electronic sounding devices to map the ocean floor. Titusville and the surrounding area will miss all the excitement surrounding Kennedy Space Center. I had the privilege of a private tour of the Vertical Assembly Building many years ago. I was teaching school in Titusville in the 1960s when we still had Cape Canaveral and NASA was just starting the space program. All teachers in Titusville were invited for a tour of the center. That is a trip I will never forget. The long-time residents of the area really protested when the name Cape Canaveral was changed to Cape Kennedy. This was done late in 1963. Many years later the Cape Canaveral name was restored and the launch location was designated as Kennedy Space Center. If youre looking for something to do, I highly recommend a trip to Kennedy Space Center. Jimmy Buffett Dont forget to make your reservations for the Jimmy Buffett Party. Contact Lil Carie, Pat Talley, or Theresa Yoders for tickets. The party is Aug. 13.

S everal weeks ago, I wrote an article featuring the upcoming Fathers Day gathering at Fairfield Villages Clubhouse the Saturday before Fathers Day. I missed the fun because I was visiting in Virginia, but I promised our residents that I would follow up with photos from that evening. Well I am keeping my promise and wishing that I could have been there to be a part of the honoring of paternal units as our children refer to fathers. That is just a Geissalism as we call them. It is meant in the best possible connotation by the way. :>)) The photos along with this piece are some of the most significant to the two lovely ladies who were the hostesses for the event. Cecile Gautier and Paula LeBlanc thoroughly enjoyed all the preparations and the time to be somewhat sentimental about their own papas as many Canadians call their fathers. Personally, I doubt that I would be anywhere close to the person I am if it were not for my paternal unit who was my adopted father. Charles Edwin (Ed) Morris, Sr., probably the best gentleman I have ever known (other than my husband) adopted me, my sister and brother and treated us with the same affection as his natural son Ed, Jr. No one has had a greater influence on my spiritual life than he and no one could have been a better role model. He was nearly perfect in my 15 year old eyes when he married my mom (and the whole family a package deal!) I was 15, my sister Mary Ruth was 12 and my baby brother, Jimmy, was 3. Eddie, our new brother was my age, and we graduated high school together in Lindale, Ga, from Pepperell High School some 52 years ago this year. I will never forget one thing that my dad taught me above all other things .No one ever got to be one inch taller by stepping on someone else. That is so profound I knew he meant treat others with respect but he said it in his own North Georgia colloquial way. Ed Morris was a quietly religious man, the first divorced ordained deacon in First Baptist Rome, Ga., history. He treated my mother like a real lady, which had not been in her history sadly. She grew up as a foster child and married very young because it was expected at that time 1940. Together Mary and Ed Morris spent almost 50 years after they married at the age of 35. They both died within 5 months of each other. I believe that life was not worth living to either of them without their other half. I could write a tribute to dads, moms, marriage, family, Christian Love, generosity, hard work, devotion to duty almost anything worthwhile and I could use my mom and dad as examples. I sincerely hope that someday our children might have good thoughts about our parenting like I have about my mom and dad. The thing about my dad was that he did not have to be my dad. He chose to be he formally adopted all three of us Morris kids and was equally proud of all of us. When he passed away five years ago, his greatgranddaughter our grand Emily Esposito, was only 13 years old; however she insisted on giving a public eulogy at his funeral with no notes just genuine feeling for the man we all called Dandy. I hardly remember what she said, but I saw the beautiful tears shed by a young lady who was molded by the love of a great man her great grandfather. I wish we all could have that kind of loving upbringing. (By the way, he lived 420 miles away from her, but they talked on the phone at least weekly and saw each other as often as possible.) She knew how much he loved his Peanut and she loved her Dandy just as much. Lots of Fairfield folks have wonderful relationships with their families.

In the center is Grace Schore, 8, from Stancils Corner on U.S. 27 at Northwest 60th Street. On the left is Alex Torres, 5, and on the right is William Torres, 8, who are both from Majestic Oaks. An Ocala man was killed in a one-car accident on July 15 shortly after 8 p.m. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Jose R. Vazquez, 30, was driving south on Southwest 60th Avenue near the crossroads intersection of 52nd Street, south of the post office, at a high rate of speed. Vazquez lost control negotiating a curve and over-corrected, traveling counterclockwise across the northbound lines onto the road shoulder. The right rear door struck a large concrete utility pole and rotated clockwise on the east shoulder until its front end collided with two wire livestock fences. The vehicle caught fire and became engulfed in flames with the driver still inside the vehicle. Marion County Fire Rescue responded along with the Highway Patrol. According to the report, he was wearing a seatbelt. The Highway Patrol was still on the scene mid-morning the next day. Jim Clark E DITOR The crowd was small but vocal Thursday night as Marion County planners held a public hearing on the scenic road situation in the county, including the proposed master plan. Almost all speakers were in favor of expanding the scenic road designations in the county, and one went so far as to propose that the process be taken away from county commissioners. Justin Ryan, transportation planner for the countys Growth Management Departments Planning Division, conducted the meeting, which was originally scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m., but adjourned shortly after 7 after all those who wished to speak had been heard. Only 13 members of the public attended. The most radical proposal came from Steve Ellis of Southwest 75th Terrace, who suggested that decisions on scenic roads be removed from the county commissioners lap. He proposed a ranking by a committee of the recommended scenic roads, and that the top roads on the list be submitted to the voters in a referendum. That would take the political nature away. Commissioners recently decided to remove some roads from the list, with the most controversial being part of Shady Road, also known as County Road 475A and, in some places, Southwest 27th Avenue. Darlene Weesner, who said she started the scenic road efforts in 1985, said she was very, very concerned with recent actions.

As of press time, no funeral arrangements had been announced. By John Terry S PECIALTOTHEM ESSENGER Blaise Ingoglia from Government Gone Wild gave a motivational presentation on our country's debt and deficit. The title of this Power Point presentation was "The Tea Party Edition: Government is Broken." It was chilling to see the verifiable numbers from government sources found on the Internet. There is no doubt that the current outof -control borrowing and spending by our elected officials, will destroy this country, if allowed to continue. Deficit is simply defined as more money going out than coming in. Debt is a combination of the public debt (what federal government is borrowing from other countries) and intra-governmental debt (what federal government is borrowing within America). Including unfunded liabilities (i.e., Social Security, pensions, Medicare and Medicaid), America's current debt is over $114 trillion. Our federal government, supposedly working for us, is spending $2.8 million a minute and $4.1 billion a day. Every individual in this country, no matter their age, owes $46,357 in unfunded liabilities. If this continues, in a mere 10 years, our debt will be $25.1 trillion more than our GDP and also more than the GDP of all the countries in the world combined. Besides the borrowing and spending, waste and fraud are rampant; and never trust the government's forecast of cost. It is always underestimated, runs out of money after partial completion, then asks for more. Two examples: Boston's Big Dig was forecast to cost $2.6 B; in reality, the cost was $14.6 B. The parking lot for the Kennedy Center was projected to be $28 M; the actual cost was $88 M. After Katrina, 900,000 of the 2.5 million applicants for disaster relief were found to be fraudulent. Many examples of waste were shown, but what could be more wasteful than to pay $1 M of our money to put poems in zoos? The bottom line is that our debt is the next security threat via Financial Warfare. China, Japan, the U. K., and almost every country on earth own our bonds; all they have to do is foreclose. Not a shot or a missile would have to be fired. John Terry is a member of Tea Party Solutions of Ocala.

Paula LeBlanc danced with Don Ouellette to the tune of "O! My PaPa," one of Eddie Fisher's hit tunes and one meant to honor all fathers past, present, and future. Priscilla Geissal The photos brought to the gathering honoring fathers during Father's Day weekend in June were a tribute to gentlemen who made their personal mark in their children's history. The Father's Day cake provided for Fairfield residents at the Father's Day celebration earlier last month.
