INDEX Fairfield Village..2 Stone Creek........3 Happenings..........4 Quail Meadow......8 VOLUME 4, NUMBER 23 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST31, 2011 9/11 event Page 9 Puzzles Page 10 12Wednesday, August 31, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 0 0 0 9 1 X F County Commissioner Stan McClain, District 3, announced that he will seek re-election in 2012. We have pushed forward during some very tough economic times over the past three years but have kept our countys fiscal house in order by making some tough cuts and by holding the line on our spending, said McClain. The hard work has paid off, and now we are poised to become one of Floridas leaders out of the recession, and I am looking forward to serving with this team one more term to help bring job growth and prosperity back to our community. In 2004 when he first ran for office, McClain ran on what his news release calls a common sense platform of limiting spending, cutting taxes, and improving infrastructure. He has built a reputation as a fiscal conservative with a commitment to encouraging economic development by setting reasonable tax policies and by looking for forwardthinking ideas to spur on job creation, according to the release. McClain says he has also taken strong action to protect Marion Countys springs and natural resources and has been a consensus builder in achieving reasonable water policies. As a leader in the state Chamber of Commerce, as a former House Speaker, and as a former member of the County Commission, I share Stans philosophy that governments role in economic development is to set good tax and regulatory policy and then let our small businesses work, said former House Speaker Larry Cretul. Stan is a thoughtful leader for our community, and we are looking forward to his return to the Commission. Marion Countys greatest resource is its people, said McClain. Without them, we could not achieve our most simple goals, and I am ready to work with them again in shaping a bright future for Marion County. The movie is built around golf, but its about life, from despair into a journey to deep faith. Members of area churches are organizing groups to attend Seven Days in Utopia www.sevendaysinutopia.com at the Marion Theatre when it begins its showing on Sept. 2. Mike McGinnis, member of First Baptist Church of Ocala, and former golf instructor at the College of Central Florida, said his Sunday school class has talked about the book. According to McGinnis, the book and movie have a great message about golf and life, and he encourages everyone to see it. Mark Cummins, pastor of the Church of Hope, has seen the movie. He notes that it has a message of hope, in the tension of broken relationships, leading to the discovery of the purposes and plans that God has for the central characters life. Cummins observes that in the movie the message comes forth that God engages us outside of church, in all the various realms of our lives. The movie has a special meaning for a group of Ocalans who plan to attend the Marion Theatre premier because of its ties to Ocala. Aeronautical engineer/entrepreneur and longtime Ocala resident Sandy Reese, who died Friday, Aug. 12, had a direct connection with the movie and its producer/author David Cook. The two men became business partners in Reeso Putters www.reesoputters.com which Reese designed and engineered. The face-on putters are featured in the movie. Reese will be honored by the Save The Marion Theater group with a moment of silence and a brief ceremony on the evening of the movies first showing at the Marion, which the Ocala native grew up attending at an early age. Meanwhile, through the generosity of others, many youths 18 and under will have chances to attend the movie free when accompanied by a ticket-bearing adult. Local theater group to honor Reese as golf film opens Please see FILM Page 9 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKJV football action The West Port High School junior varsity won its half of action in the preseason classic Friday night, beating Belleview 14-13. Here the defense swarms all over a Rattler runner. West Port cruised in the varsity half, 410. The JV opens the season at Dunnellon Thursday. McClain says hell run again in 2012 McClain PHOTO PROVIDEDRally for Israel The Republican Club of Ocala Palms spearheaded a Restoring Courage/Standing with Israel Rally on Aug. 24 on the Square in downtown Ocala. This rally was in conjunction with three events in Jerusalem sponsored by Glenn Beck; events intended to show Israel they have support and are not alone in the world. A special thanks to Rep. Dennis Baxley for supplying the drinking water. It was much appreciated. Early deadline for next issueBecause of Labor Day, the deadline for news for the Sept. 7 issue of the Messenger will be Thursday, Sept. 1, at 3 p.m. Any material received after that time will be held until the following week. The Messenger and Citizen office will be closed Monday. Regular hours will resume at 8:30 Tuesday morning. Also, please remember to submit your memories of 9/11 by Thursday.

No Technicians, No Opticians, Just You and the Doctor 000924T MUSEUM EYECARE Fairfield Village O n Thursday evening, Aug. 25, at 7 p.m., the Fairfield Village Clubhouse became the scene of another of ALL Manager Peggy Slusss Lifestyle Events. So far, all of these events have been a splendid success for which Peggy gives much credit to several others of our community residents who pitch in to make these events so much fun. That was the case again this time as Peggy along with Toni Belcher, Linda Ford, Becky Kelsch, and Ann Kulesa coordinated a Fashion Show with quite unusual (foreign) models. There were celebrities from around the world Charlene (Belcher), Danielle (Ford), Roberta (Kelsch). Edwina (Kulesa), and Raylene (Sluss), along with Penny (Geissal) and Josephina (Scott). Fairfield Village attendees of the event were totally entertained with these well-known French, Irish, Dutch, German, Scotch, English and (we suspected) Libyan ladies who showed off the latest fashions. The show started with casual wear, then business wear, followed by evening attire, and as a most remarkable finale bridal wear worn quite convincingly by the lovely Danielle (Ford.) All those present seemed to feel that though the blushing bride, Danielle. was not able to rival Duchess Catherine or even Kim Kardashian with their much publicized weddings of the past several moths, there was a gorgeous wedding dress modeled which is actually available for rental in the Ocala area for quite a reasonable fee. The visiting models did more than a respectable job of showcasing very stylish outfits that would fit the tastes of someone somewhere in the world surely? We did feel that several of our models were definitely of the PLUS SIZE category rather than of the very tiny and demure demeanor of Duchess Catherine (Kate) or that of her much publicized younger sister, Pippa Middleton, who has become quite the icon of English elegance and grace. We believe that the photos of our most alluring guest models will speak for themselves as Fairfield Village continues to prove that we are indeed quite the lively place filled with lovely? people. Womanly event a big hit in Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal Danielle (Ford), quite the sexy icon, is a terrific hit along with her darling little puppy in the matching animal print coat. More photos, Page 8 Edwina (Kulesa) is a study in contrasts with the turquoise and black outfit which is set off by her petite purse and darling hat. Edwina is the essence of "sweetness" as can be seen with her saccharine smile. 00090LN 7201 SW Hwy. 200 Ocala (352) 629-0900 (4 miles west of I-75, just before new Lowes) (4 miles west of I-75, just before new Lowes) (352) 629-0900 Other locations throughout the southeast 7201 SW Hwy. 200 Ocala GREAT FINANCING ON NEW CARTS!

Early difficulties are soon worked out. Stability returns as adjustments are made. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new romance tests the unattached Bovines patience to the limit. But Venus still rules the Taurean heart, so expect to find yourself trying hard to make this relationship work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Its a good time to consider home-related purchases. But shop around carefully for the best price whether its a new house for the family or a new hose for the garden. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A contentious family member seems intent on creating problems. Best advice: Avoid stepping in until you know more about the origins of this domestic disagreement. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A recent job-related move proves far more successful than you could have imagined. Look for continued beneficial fallout. Even your critics have something nice to say. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Ease up and stop driving yourself to finish that project on a deadline that is no longer realistic. Your superiors will be open to requests for an extension. Ask for it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You should soon be hearing some positive feedback on that recent business move. An old family problem recurs, but this time youll know how to handle it better. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some surprising statements shed light on the problem that caused that once-warm relationship to cool off. Use this newly won knowledge to help turn things around. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your spiritual side is especially strong at this time. Let it guide you into deeper contemplation of aspects about yourself that youd like to understand better. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your merrier aspect continues to dominate and to attract folks who rarely see this side of you. Some serious new romancing could develop out of all this cheeriness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre always concerned about the well-being of others. Its time you put some of that concern into your own health situation, especially where it involves nutrition. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Just when you thought your life had finally stabilized, along comes another change that needs to be addressed. Someone you trust can help you deal with it successfully. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sixth sense when it comes to finding people who need help long before they think of asking for it. And youre right there to provide it. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure Stone Creek A baby shower at a 55+ community is usually not an event one sees, but this happened at the home of Rita Levy last Thursday. She is a member of the Crafts of the Mind Book club and the club sponsored the baby shower for one of their outreach programs Alpha House. Amy Schwartz, secretary of the club, suggested the idea. Thirty people attended the luncheon and brought much needed items for the Alpha House. Those in attendance were book club members as well as residents who volunteer at the Alpha House along with their director, Lori Chamblin. June Council and Kathy Rossi are Stone Creek residents who volunteer at Alpha House. Also present were volunteers from Brothers' Keeper Soup Kitchen who work with Rita Levy and Patricia Gizzi, cochairs of the baby shower. Sister Concepta, director of the Soup Kitchen was also present, and many of Rita's friends who wanted to help. Lori Chamblin spoke to the group and told them about the history of the Alpha House and had hand outs on the various jobs that volunteers can do. She thanked the Book Group for their donations and how this shower would help them. Many at the shower thought it should become a yearly event for Alpha House. Sister Concepta also spoke of the needs of the Soup Kitchen and thanked those that contribute food. If you are interested in volunteering, you can call Sister Concepta at 352-867-9860. Rita Gonzales who coordinates the pickup of food for the Soup Kitchen also asked for volunteers. Officers of the club are Carol Wilkes, Peggy Seery and Amy Schwartz. Crafts of the Mind Book Club meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. to discuss the book they are reading that month. This month, they read The Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes. This book is a novel of the Vietnam War. New community manager, Chris Johnson was invited as he spent two tours of duty in Vietnam. There was a great deal of discussion about his perspective and the perspective of the author. The book club recently took a field trip to see the movie, The Help as they had read the book earlier this year. They are looking to take another field trip to see Sarah's Key,another book they read. If you are interested in reading and discussing books, give this club a try. They will be planning next year's books in the coming months. The Book Club has teamed up this year with the Leisure Arts Club to purchase children's books for their bag program of putting great children's books with activities into homemade book bags for Saddlewood Elementary School. These bags and books will be given to the library for teachers to check out. The book club will be selling donated books at the Fall Festival on Oct. 15. If you have books you would like to donate you can drop them off at Terry Quinn's home in Pinebrook. There is a box outside her front door. The money from the sale of these books will be donated to Leisure Arts for the purchase of children's books. This is just another example of how clubs, organizations and residents of Stone Creek are giving back to the Ocala Community. What a great place to live!

Free tickets for students are being provided by the Moot Thomas Amateur Golf Fund, starting with the opening on Friday and concluding on Thursday, Sept. 8. The first 25 students (grades 1-12) that are accompanied by a ticket-purchasing parent will receive a free ticket for each days 4:15 PM and 7:00 PM showings. The Moot Thomas Amateur Golf Fund supports local amateur and junior golf in a variety of ways, through contributions managed by Trustees, which are received at PO Box 2798, Ocala. The Trustees believe Moot would have supported sharing this movie with all youth of Ocala. The Fund is also providing free tickets to all Marion County high school golf coaches and team members for a high school golf team showing. In addition, a copy of the David Cooks book, Golfs Sacred Journey, www.linksofutopia.com on which the movie is based and drawn from experiences Dr. Cook has had as a sports psychologist, will be given to each of those 25 parents who receive a free ticket for his or her child, at the 4:15 and 7 p.m. showings each day, compliments of The Briggs Law Firm and its partners, Randy and Bo Briggs, 5th generation Ocala personal injury lawyers, and supporters of The Marion Theater and HOPS. Seven Days in Utopia is a movie about a fictional character named Luke Chisolm set on joining the pro golf tour with his father as his caddie and a subsequent meltdown which creates a rift in their relationship and causes the young mans journey through defeat and discouragement to learn lessons about life as well as golf. The Save The Marion Theater Group is planning a series of events including local competition at area golf coursesto alert the community about the inspiring story about a father and son relationship and a journey to deep faith, and will sponsor a special Saturday morning matinee Sept. 3 at the Marion Theatre with tickets available for an adult for $7.50, which includes a free ticket for a child under 18 and a free copy of the book. Local golf courses participating in the Utopia World Putting Championship to be held on Magnolia Avenue Friday, Sept. 2 at 6 p.m. in front of the Marion Theatre are Country Club of Ocala, Golden Ocala, Golden Hills, Ocala Muny, and Silver Springs Shores. Since the Save The Marion Theater Group began its promotion of ticket sales at the Marion Theatre in order to save it from closing, attendance is up and the movie house has posted three consecutive profitable months through July. STMT is a division of Historic Ocala Preservation Society (H.O.P .S.) which is serving as fiscal agent so that donations to STMT are tax deductible as contributions. Contributions may be sent to STMT at P .O. Box 2421, Ocala Florida 34478.

She was, however, lovely in her casual attire. Charlene (Belcher) is a natural redhead who looked stunning in her teal outfit with the lovely neck treatment. Raylene (Sluss) was the beautiful natural blonde who looked so stylish in her blue summer outfit with her coordinating green flats. Flashing that gorgeous smile under her straw hat, Raylene captured the attention of all the fashion show attendees. Roberta (Kelsch) was the tallest and one of the most elegant of the foreign models. Though we were not sure what her national background actually is, it is known that Roberta is a very "big" football ...not soccer...fan. Seen from the "rear"...a very nice point of view ... Josephina (Scott) dazzled the audience not only with those legs, but also with the platinum blonde tresses that are Josephina's trademark. Fairfield Village photos W here did the summer go? Its hard to believe September is here. With the new month, there are several important events taking place here in the Meadow: Friday, the 2nd, is going to be a busy day. The first event is the meeting of the Red Hot Fillies of the Meadow. This will be at the clubhouse at 1 p.m. All ladies are invited to join this group. Plans for the remainder of the year will be discussed at this meeting. One big project of the Red Hatters each year is the Christmas tree that is decorated and given to a local assisted living facility. All the ornaments are made by our women. Joan Christopher is the designer of the ornaments. The first workshop will be on Friday, Sept. 16. The next event is the First Friday gathering at the clubhouse also on the 2nd. We had a great turnout last month and are looking forward to another great evening. Invite your neighbors to come join with us at 7 p.m. We wish a belated happy 60th wedding anniversary to Bob and Thelma Stevens. Their anniversary was on Aug. 9. As of today, we can say, goodnight, Irene. It is great that she decided to go on her way and by-pass Ocala. Do you take time to look Summer wanes, activities increase up at our beautiful sky? The early morning sky is truly a beautiful sight. One morning, a couple of weeks ago, I noticed a very spectacular sunrise; it looked like orange sunbeams reaching up into the heavens. The very next day, also very early, the full moon was still very visible, but was about half covered with a cloud, but the unusual thing was, there was lightning in the cloud. In the evening we have the privilege of seeing so many stars and the planets. Our air is so free of the city pollution that we get a glorious view of the heavens. Visitors to our beautiful community often remark about how clear the sky is and the stars are so visible. Even my 4-year old greatgranddaughter told me she likes looking at my sky because she cant see stars in Atlanta. Take time to enjoy the beauty of our earth.

messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, August 31, 2011 7 6Wednesday, August 31, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger West Marion Messenger 8810 W. State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends A s you may have guessed, Im not a particularly big fan of school buses or school zones. Theres a letter from Kevin Christian of the School Board office in todays paper, and hes defending the delays on the first day of school. All right, Ill give him the fact that it was the first day, and it may have taken a little longer to get children acclimated to make sure they knew which bus to take on the way home. Here are a couple of points, however. First, whats the excuse for the same thing happening with a different bus near the same location on the second week of school. Monday, Im heading south on 60th Avenue at some ridiculous hour of the morning, and theres a northbound school bus stopped not too far north of State Road 200. Its lights were on, and it was just sitting there, and sitting there, and sitting there. What made it worse was that 60th is a wide road with a median bigger than five feet, so opposite traffic doesnt have to stop, but there we were, sitting and waiting, because the drivers in front didnt know the law. But my frustration doesnt end there it really doesnt even begin there. Last week we editorialized about the fact that the bus stood and waited after children got on the bus at the end of a long dirt road whose terminus isnt visible from 60th. Even the mail doesnt go down that road, all the mailboxes are lined up at the eastern end. As one who feels that government should not be doing jobs that should be the parents duties, I have to wonder why these parents drive their children all the way out that dirt road, sit there until the bus comes, wait until it leaves, then go back down the road. Do you realize that in the time it takes to get there and wait, they could have driven their children to school? It would have made the ride more comfortable for the children, and chances are they could have left a little later in the morning like after sunrise. I know its a foreign concept to some parents responsible for their own children, instead of government being responsible for them. Im proud of my parents. I never rode a bus until high school, and that was only because I chose to go to a regional Catholic high school, instead of the local public school. Even then, I transferred schools after one year, and was within walking distance of my fathers pharmacy, and I walked to him every day, and he got me home. So I know the bus drivers have a tough job, but thats not my fault, its the fault of parents and the school system. And dont make the drivers do things like putting arm bands on little kids so they get on the right bus to come home. That should be an aides job. Whats that? You say the buses have no aides? Now that sounds like another whole column. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com. More on the county school buses Jim Clark Labor Day is now Thanksgiving M any years ago, Labor Day was established to honor the working people of our land, and that is still the purpose of the holiday. Up north, it marks the end of summer, but down here it has little effect on the people because of the weather. For now, Labor Day is a bittersweet reminder of the hard times that we are going through economically in the United States. The editorial cartoon near the bottom of todays page is very appropriate for many people, calling Labor Day The New Thanksgiving for many who are fortunate enough to be working and support a family, to say nothing of themselves. Still, we need to keep in mind the days purpose, to honor those who labor throughout our great nation. Workers have made our country the best in the world, and some of them have done it with the sweat of their brow and with nearly back-breaking effort. So take the time to think about those who work so hard for us across the country, and give them their due on the holiday. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorials Y our L etters About school busesThank you for covering public education in Marion County and sharing the latest information with your readers on a regular basis. Community publications serve a vital role in our society. The first week of school has been busy but very successful thanks to students, parents, teachers, support workers, and countless others in our community, including bus drivers. Can you imagine the responsibility placed on you, as a bus driver, to personally and safely transport dozens of students to and from school every day? And on the very first day, which was the target of your recent editorial, picking up thousands of students for the very first time? How daunting must it be for the kindergarten youngster who steps aboard yet is comforted by a bus driver who greets him or her with a smile, friendly comment, and then places a colored wristband on each student to ensure they get on the right bus in the afternoon? Yes, this critical step stops traffic briefly. But this inconvenience ensures students make it home safely by getting to the right bus and stepping off at the right bus stop. It is a small sacrifice to pay when car drivers have already stopped thanks to the flashing red lights on the bus. Imagine how our community would come to a halt if thousands of kids ended up scattered across the county each afternoon on the wrong bus, at the wrong bus stop, because they had no wristband to remind them of their destination? Were sorry the morning drive time is inconvenienced at the start of each school year, but we wont apologize for taking every step necessary to protect our children, the most precious resource we have. Surely two minutes is worth children making it home safely.

messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, August 31, 2011 7 6Wednesday, August 31, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger West Marion Messenger 8810 W. State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends A s you may have guessed, Im not a particularly big fan of school buses or school zones. Theres a letter from Kevin Christian of the School Board office in todays paper, and hes defending the delays on the first day of school. All right, Ill give him the fact that it was the first day, and it may have taken a little longer to get children acclimated to make sure they knew which bus to take on the way home. Here are a couple of points, however. First, whats the excuse for the same thing happening with a different bus near the same location on the second week of school. Monday, Im heading south on 60th Avenue at some ridiculous hour of the morning, and theres a northbound school bus stopped not too far north of State Road 200. Its lights were on, and it was just sitting there, and sitting there, and sitting there. What made it worse was that 60th is a wide road with a median bigger than five feet, so opposite traffic doesnt have to stop, but there we were, sitting and waiting, because the drivers in front didnt know the law. But my frustration doesnt end there it really doesnt even begin there. Last week we editorialized about the fact that the bus stood and waited after children got on the bus at the end of a long dirt road whose terminus isnt visible from 60th. Even the mail doesnt go down that road, all the mailboxes are lined up at the eastern end. As one who feels that government should not be doing jobs that should be the parents duties, I have to wonder why these parents drive their children all the way out that dirt road, sit there until the bus comes, wait until it leaves, then go back down the road. Do you realize that in the time it takes to get there and wait, they could have driven their children to school? It would have made the ride more comfortable for the children, and chances are they could have left a little later in the morning like after sunrise. I know its a foreign concept to some parents responsible for their own children, instead of government being responsible for them. Im proud of my parents. I never rode a bus until high school, and that was only because I chose to go to a regional Catholic high school, instead of the local public school. Even then, I transferred schools after one year, and was within walking distance of my fathers pharmacy, and I walked to him every day, and he got me home. So I know the bus drivers have a tough job, but thats not my fault, its the fault of parents and the school system. And dont make the drivers do things like putting arm bands on little kids so they get on the right bus to come home. That should be an aides job. Whats that? You say the buses have no aides? Now that sounds like another whole column. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com. More on the county school buses Jim Clark Labor Day is now Thanksgiving M any years ago, Labor Day was established to honor the working people of our land, and that is still the purpose of the holiday. Up north, it marks the end of summer, but down here it has little effect on the people because of the weather. For now, Labor Day is a bittersweet reminder of the hard times that we are going through economically in the United States. The editorial cartoon near the bottom of todays page is very appropriate for many people, calling Labor Day The New Thanksgiving for many who are fortunate enough to be working and support a family, to say nothing of themselves. Still, we need to keep in mind the days purpose, to honor those who labor throughout our great nation. Workers have made our country the best in the world, and some of them have done it with the sweat of their brow and with nearly back-breaking effort. So take the time to think about those who work so hard for us across the country, and give them their due on the holiday. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorials Y our L etters About school busesThank you for covering public education in Marion County and sharing the latest information with your readers on a regular basis. Community publications serve a vital role in our society. The first week of school has been busy but very successful thanks to students, parents, teachers, support workers, and countless others in our community, including bus drivers. Can you imagine the responsibility placed on you, as a bus driver, to personally and safely transport dozens of students to and from school every day? And on the very first day, which was the target of your recent editorial, picking up thousands of students for the very first time? How daunting must it be for the kindergarten youngster who steps aboard yet is comforted by a bus driver who greets him or her with a smile, friendly comment, and then places a colored wristband on each student to ensure they get on the right bus in the afternoon? Yes, this critical step stops traffic briefly. But this inconvenience ensures students make it home safely by getting to the right bus and stepping off at the right bus stop. It is a small sacrifice to pay when car drivers have already stopped thanks to the flashing red lights on the bus. Imagine how our community would come to a halt if thousands of kids ended up scattered across the county each afternoon on the wrong bus, at the wrong bus stop, because they had no wristband to remind them of their destination? Were sorry the morning drive time is inconvenienced at the start of each school year, but we wont apologize for taking every step necessary to protect our children, the most precious resource we have. Surely two minutes is worth children making it home safely.

She was, however, lovely in her casual attire. Charlene (Belcher) is a natural redhead who looked stunning in her teal outfit with the lovely neck treatment. Raylene (Sluss) was the beautiful natural blonde who looked so stylish in her blue summer outfit with her coordinating green flats. Flashing that gorgeous smile under her straw hat, Raylene captured the attention of all the fashion show attendees. Roberta (Kelsch) was the tallest and one of the most elegant of the foreign models. Though we were not sure what her national background actually is, it is known that Roberta is a very "big" football ...not soccer...fan. Seen from the "rear"...a very nice point of view ... Josephina (Scott) dazzled the audience not only with those legs, but also with the platinum blonde tresses that are Josephina's trademark. Fairfield Village photos W here did the summer go? Its hard to believe September is here. With the new month, there are several important events taking place here in the Meadow: Friday, the 2nd, is going to be a busy day. The first event is the meeting of the Red Hot Fillies of the Meadow. This will be at the clubhouse at 1 p.m. All ladies are invited to join this group. Plans for the remainder of the year will be discussed at this meeting. One big project of the Red Hatters each year is the Christmas tree that is decorated and given to a local assisted living facility. All the ornaments are made by our women. Joan Christopher is the designer of the ornaments. The first workshop will be on Friday, Sept. 16. The next event is the First Friday gathering at the clubhouse also on the 2nd. We had a great turnout last month and are looking forward to another great evening. Invite your neighbors to come join with us at 7 p.m. We wish a belated happy 60th wedding anniversary to Bob and Thelma Stevens. Their anniversary was on Aug. 9.

The early morning sky is truly a beautiful sight. One morning, a couple of weeks ago, I noticed a very spectacular sunrise; it looked like orange sunbeams reaching up into the heavens. The very next day, also very early, the full moon was still very visible, but was about half covered with a cloud, but the unusual thing was, there was lightning in the cloud. In the evening we have the privilege of seeing so many stars and the planets. Our air is so free of the city pollution that we get a glorious view of the heavens. Visitors to our beautiful community often remark about how clear the sky is and the stars are so visible. Even my 4-year old greatgranddaughter told me she likes looking at my sky because she cant see stars in Atlanta. Take time to enjoy the beauty of our earth.

Early difficulties are soon worked out. Stability returns as adjustments are made. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A new romance tests the unattached Bovines patience to the limit. But Venus still rules the Taurean heart, so expect to find yourself trying hard to make this relationship work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Its a good time to consider home-related purchases. But shop around carefully for the best price whether its a new house for the family or a new hose for the garden. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A contentious family member seems intent on creating problems. Best advice: Avoid stepping in until you know more about the origins of this domestic disagreement. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A recent job-related move proves far more successful than you could have imagined. Look for continued beneficial fallout. Even your critics have something nice to say. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Ease up and stop driving yourself to finish that project on a deadline that is no longer realistic. Your superiors will be open to requests for an extension. Ask for it. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You should soon be hearing some positive feedback on that recent business move. An old family problem recurs, but this time youll know how to handle it better. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Some surprising statements shed light on the problem that caused that once-warm relationship to cool off. Use this newly won knowledge to help turn things around. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your spiritual side is especially strong at this time. Let it guide you into deeper contemplation of aspects about yourself that youd like to understand better. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your merrier aspect continues to dominate and to attract folks who rarely see this side of you. Some serious new romancing could develop out of all this cheeriness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre always concerned about the well-being of others. Its time you put some of that concern into your own health situation, especially where it involves nutrition. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Just when you thought your life had finally stabilized, along comes another change that needs to be addressed. Someone you trust can help you deal with it successfully. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sixth sense when it comes to finding people who need help long before they think of asking for it. And youre right there to provide it. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure Stone Creek A baby shower at a 55+ community is usually not an event one sees, but this happened at the home of Rita Levy last Thursday. She is a member of the Crafts of the Mind Book club and the club sponsored the baby shower for one of their outreach programs Alpha House. Amy Schwartz, secretary of the club, suggested the idea. Thirty people attended the luncheon and brought much needed items for the Alpha House. Those in attendance were book club members as well as residents who volunteer at the Alpha House along with their director, Lori Chamblin. June Council and Kathy Rossi are Stone Creek residents who volunteer at Alpha House. Also present were volunteers from Brothers' Keeper Soup Kitchen who work with Rita Levy and Patricia Gizzi, cochairs of the baby shower. Sister Concepta, director of the Soup Kitchen was also present, and many of Rita's friends who wanted to help. Lori Chamblin spoke to the group and told them about the history of the Alpha House and had hand outs on the various jobs that volunteers can do. She thanked the Book Group for their donations and how this shower would help them. Many at the shower thought it should become a yearly event for Alpha House. Sister Concepta also spoke of the needs of the Soup Kitchen and thanked those that contribute food. If you are interested in volunteering, you can call Sister Concepta at 352-867-9860. Rita Gonzales who coordinates the pickup of food for the Soup Kitchen also asked for volunteers. Officers of the club are Carol Wilkes, Peggy Seery and Amy Schwartz. Crafts of the Mind Book Club meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. to discuss the book they are reading that month. This month, they read The Matterhorn by Karl Marlantes. This book is a novel of the Vietnam War. New community manager, Chris Johnson was invited as he spent two tours of duty in Vietnam. There was a great deal of discussion about his perspective and the perspective of the author. The book club recently took a field trip to see the movie, The Help as they had read the book earlier this year. They are looking to take another field trip to see Sarah's Key,another book they read. If you are interested in reading and discussing books, give this club a try. They will be planning next year's books in the coming months. The Book Club has teamed up this year with the Leisure Arts Club to purchase children's books for their bag program of putting great children's books with activities into homemade book bags for Saddlewood Elementary School. These bags and books will be given to the library for teachers to check out. The book club will be selling donated books at the Fall Festival on Oct. 15. If you have books you would like to donate you can drop them off at Terry Quinn's home in Pinebrook. There is a box outside her front door. The money from the sale of these books will be donated to Leisure Arts for the purchase of children's books. This is just another example of how clubs, organizations and residents of Stone Creek are giving back to the Ocala Community. What a great place to live! Club Officers Carol Wilkes, Amy Schwartz, Peggy Seery standing; seated hostess Rity Levy.

So far, all of these events have been a splendid success for which Peggy gives much credit to several others of our community residents who pitch in to make these events so much fun. That was the case again this time as Peggy along with Toni Belcher, Linda Ford, Becky Kelsch, and Ann Kulesa coordinated a Fashion Show with quite unusual (foreign) models. There were celebrities from around the world Charlene (Belcher), Danielle (Ford), Roberta (Kelsch). Edwina (Kulesa), and Raylene (Sluss), along with Penny (Geissal) and Josephina (Scott). Fairfield Village attendees of the event were totally entertained with these well-known French, Irish, Dutch, German, Scotch, English and (we suspected) Libyan ladies who showed off the latest fashions. The show started with casual wear, then business wear, followed by evening attire, and as a most remarkable finale bridal wear worn quite convincingly by the lovely Danielle (Ford.) All those present seemed to feel that though the blushing bride, Danielle. was not able to rival Duchess Catherine or even Kim Kardashian with their much publicized weddings of the past several moths, there was a gorgeous wedding dress modeled which is actually available for rental in the Ocala area for quite a reasonable fee. The visiting models did more than a respectable job of showcasing very stylish outfits that would fit the tastes of someone somewhere in the world surely? We did feel that several of our models were definitely of the PLUS SIZE category rather than of the very tiny and demure demeanor of Duchess Catherine (Kate) or that of her much publicized younger sister, Pippa Middleton, who has become quite the icon of English elegance and grace. We believe that the photos of our most alluring guest models will speak for themselves as Fairfield Village continues to prove that we are indeed quite the lively place filled with lovely? people. Womanly event a big hit in Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal Danielle (Ford), quite the sexy icon, is a terrific hit along with her darling little puppy in the matching animal print coat. More photos, Page 8 Edwina (Kulesa) is a study in contrasts with the turquoise and black outfit which is set off by her petite purse and darling hat. Edwina is the essence of "sweetness" as can be seen with her saccharine smile. 00090LN 7201 SW Hwy. 200 Ocala (352) 629-0900 (4 miles west of I-75, just before new Lowes) (4 miles west of I-75, just before new Lowes) (352) 629-0900 Other locations throughout the southeast 7201 SW Hwy. 200 Ocala GREAT FINANCING ON NEW CARTS!

INDEX Fairfield Village..2 Stone Creek........3 Happenings..........4 Quail Meadow......8 VOLUME 4, NUMBER 23 WEDNESDAY, AUGUST31, 2011 9/11 event Page 9 Puzzles Page 10 12Wednesday, August 31, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 0 0 0 9 1 X F County Commissioner Stan McClain, District 3, announced that he will seek re-election in 2012. We have pushed forward during some very tough economic times over the past three years but have kept our countys fiscal house in order by making some tough cuts and by holding the line on our spending, said McClain. The hard work has paid off, and now we are poised to become one of Floridas leaders out of the recession, and I am looking forward to serving with this team one more term to help bring job growth and prosperity back to our community. In 2004 when he first ran for office, McClain ran on what his news release calls a common sense platform of limiting spending, cutting taxes, and improving infrastructure. He has built a reputation as a fiscal conservative with a commitment to encouraging economic development by setting reasonable tax policies and by looking for forwardthinking ideas to spur on job creation, according to the release. McClain says he has also taken strong action to protect Marion Countys springs and natural resources and has been a consensus builder in achieving reasonable water policies. As a leader in the state Chamber of Commerce, as a former House Speaker, and as a former member of the County Commission, I share Stans philosophy that governments role in economic development is to set good tax and regulatory policy and then let our small businesses work, said former House Speaker Larry Cretul. Stan is a thoughtful leader for our community, and we are looking forward to his return to the Commission. Marion Countys greatest resource is its people, said McClain. Without them, we could not achieve our most simple goals, and I am ready to work with them again in shaping a bright future for Marion County. The movie is built around golf, but its about life, from despair into a journey to deep faith. Members of area churches are organizing groups to attend Seven Days in Utopia www.sevendaysinutopia.com at the Marion Theatre when it begins its showing on Sept. 2. Mike McGinnis, member of First Baptist Church of Ocala, and former golf instructor at the College of Central Florida, said his Sunday school class has talked about the book. According to McGinnis, the book and movie have a great message about golf and life, and he encourages everyone to see it. Mark Cummins, pastor of the Church of Hope, has seen the movie. He notes that it has a message of hope, in the tension of broken relationships, leading to the discovery of the purposes and plans that God has for the central characters life. Cummins observes that in the movie the message comes forth that God engages us outside of church, in all the various realms of our lives. The movie has a special meaning for a group of Ocalans who plan to attend the Marion Theatre premier because of its ties to Ocala. Aeronautical engineer/entrepreneur and longtime Ocala resident Sandy Reese, who died Friday, Aug. 12, had a direct connection with the movie and its producer/author David Cook. The two men became business partners in Reeso Putters www.reesoputters.com which Reese designed and engineered. The face-on putters are featured in the movie. Reese will be honored by the Save The Marion Theater group with a moment of silence and a brief ceremony on the evening of the movies first showing at the Marion, which the Ocala native grew up attending at an early age. Meanwhile, through the generosity of others, many youths 18 and under will have chances to attend the movie free when accompanied by a ticket-bearing adult.
