Two charity golf events to take place Saturday PHOTO BY JIM CLARKAllen and Cheryl Eagleson of Quail Meadow were on hand for the 9/11 memorial event at Veterans Park last Saturday morning. Ocala remembers Every year I get sad, and every year I get mad PHOTO BY JIM CLARKBernadette Castro speaks at the memorial. By Jim Clark E DITOR The Ocala area remembered over the weekend as the nation recalled the 10th anniversary of the attacks on America on Sept. 11, 2001. In a touching ceremony at Veterans Park on Saturday, the crowd heard the solemn ringing of the bells, listened to a 21-gun salute, watched the solemn presentation of the colors accompanied by somber bagpipe music, and heard speakers describe the emotions of the day. The Keynote speaker was Bernadette Castro, a part-time Ocala resident who was a Parks Commissioner in New York City 10 Please see OCALA Page 12 years ago. She said when she saw a big plane hit the first tower, all knew that the people in that tower above where it hit could not survive. When the second plane hit, she said, We all knew this was an attack on America. She noted the lack of survivors when she said her husband, a surgeon, called from the hospital that triage units were set up, but not that many patients were seen. New York blood centers collected 36,000 units of blood, but only 260 were used. As a member of the citys Cabinet, she attended 13 funerals. We were going to funerals not days later, not weeks later, but months later, she added. She said the attackers were bad, evil men, led by the most evil man, who wanted to divide us. Instead they united us. She criticized the current city rules. I dont get why 9/11 firefighters and NYPD are not allowed at the ceremony, nor are chaplains. Castro noted that the anniversary always stirs up memories. Every year I get sad, and every year I get mad. She praised Americans, saying, Were resilient, were free, were brave and we love our fellow man. Castro was introduced by Undersheriff Dan Kuhn, who was the master of ceremonies. Ann Schulz sang the National Anthem, and Mayor Randy Ewers welcomed the crowd. History of the 5-5-5 bells was given by Michael Mongeluzzo, who retired from the Fire Department of New York. Military members laid a wreath near a piece of steel that had been obtained from the World Trade Center. The Kingdom of the Sun Band played before and during the ceremony. By Jim Clark E DITOR The memories of 9/11 are very real for high school student Christian Suarez. The young man lost his father, a firefighter, in the Twin Towers. Sally, I love you and Im not coming home, was the brief message that Benjamin Suarez said to his wife. He was in Tower 2 when it collapsed. His body was never found. Christian led the audience at Saturdays ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Victims son leads Pledge Christian Suarez PHOTO BY JIM CLARKOcala fire trucks form their own Twin Towers to display a large American flag at Saturdays ceremony. The ringing of the bell.

With the return of many of our residents who disappear during the summer months, the timing is perfect for new gatherings to take place. Many of us have missed the regular potluck dinners which always prove to add pounds even if we are trying to shed a few. We make the sacrifice and make sure not to hurt any neighbors feelings by not partaking of their contribution to what often seems like a feast. We have so many extraordinary cooks in our community that it is a challenge to try not to overindulge. Our Labor Day Celebration held on Sunday, Sept. 4, rather than Monday, Sept. 5, proved to be one of those special times when everyone was truly enjoying themselves. The food was delicious; the conversations were interesting; and the entertainment was exceptional Bart Rich provided music and a special entertaining feature when he read a humorous account of why an Indiana resiOur social activities are back on track dent moved to Florida many years ago. Bart attributed the hilarious piece about the snow in the winter and this one persons particular consternation with the local snow plows and the snow plow operators to one of our most popular neighbors, R. B. Weller. Everyone knows what a really good sport R.B. (Bryce) is, and he was again about this comical piece. He even added a few additional comments which made the audience laugh even more enthusiastically. When we gather as we did to celebrate our country and its legacies, there is always a terrific show of national pride and patriotism. Tears can be seen in the eyes of many when we speak of the sacrifices made for the freedom that we in Fairfield Village do not take for granted. This is just another example of the fact that our community is a fun place to be and genuinely is a lively place filled with lovely people. Priscilla Geissal See FAIRFIELD Page 11 The SAC group that put together a tremendously successful Labor Day Celebration stand together and receive applause from the Fairfield Village community. FAIRFIELDcontinued from Page 2 Eilene Yodonin and John Scott show what a good time they are having at Fairfield Village's Labor Day event. Becky Weller chuckles good-naturedly as Bart Rick attributes his humorous story to her husband, R.B.

Use this period to check out situations that soon will require a lot of serious decision-making. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep that keen Bovine mind focused on your financial situation as it begins to undergo some changes. Consider your money moves carefully. Avoid impulsive investments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Youll need to adjust some of your financial plans now that things are changing more quickly than you expected. All the facts you need havent yet emerged, so move cautiously. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal and professional relationships dominate this period. Try to keep things uncomplicated to avoid misunderstandings that can cause problems down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) That elusive goal youd been hoping to claim is still just out of reach. But something else has come along that could prove just as desirable, if only you would take the time to check it out. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to get away for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Youll return refreshed and ready to take on the workplace challenge that awaits you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Confidence grows as you work your way through some knotty situations. Watch out for distractions from well-meaning supporters that could slow things down. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Consider spending more time contemplating the possibilities of an offer before opting to accept or reject it. But once you make a decision, act on it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Youre in a very strong position this week to tie up loose ends in as many areas as possible. Someone close to you has advice you might want to heed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Congratulations. This is the week youve been waiting for: After a period of sudden stops and fitful starts, your plans can now move ahead with no significant disruptions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Youre in an exceptionally strong position this week to make decisions on many still-unresolved matters, especially those involving close personal relationships. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The new moon starts this week off with some positive movement in several areas. A special person becomes a partner in at least one of the major plans youll be working on.

ACCEPTING MEDICAID INCLUDING CHILDRENS CLEANINGS, FILLINGS AND SEALANTS T he Stone Creek Veterans sponsored the first Friday Social for September in honor of 9/11. 240+ residents attended along with eight villa guests. All took part in an enjoyable evening of live music provided by "One Flight Up", dancing and a chance to chat with friends and neighbors. Residents were asked to decorate their table in a patriotic theme to accommodate ten people. There were many wonderful table decorations and table 5 was selected. Debbie Beitel, Debbie Gray Karen Snelson decorated this winning table with items from Karen Stein. The judges said, "It was a tough decision. Lots of creativity and thought went into the decorating." Lynn Cooper observed, "From looking at the food on the tables, it was unbelievable what some brought for their 'snacks', some were dinners. Too bad we(judges) could not go to all the tables and sample the various delicacies being offered." Attendees also brought many items for the Veterans' project Operation Shoebox What I w a s per s onally d oing on Sept 11 2001 Each of us can recall what we were doing on 9/11. I was in a classroom in Newark, Delaware when I was given a memo to read. It said do not read this out loud. It told us that our country was attacked and we were not to tell the children what happened as parents were already coming to school to pick up their children. I looked across the room at my teaching partner and tried to go on. What do you say to 4th graders who lives and those of all of us were forever changed on that day? By John El d er At that time I was living in a corporate provided apartment in Hacksack, New Jersey. From the building's roof top I could plainly see the New York City skyline only 11 miles away. Two weeks prior to 9/11 I was on the thirteen story roof top taking in the scenic view. I remember commenting to some friends how beautiful the World Trade Towers were reflecting the evening's sunset. What man made had made, God sun's rays glistened against the building with approval. However, on 9/11 I was on a business trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. As I was in my room preparing for an early morning telephone conference with our New Jersey home office, I received a call from my mother in South Carolina to turn on the TV. I watched in horror as the second tower came under attack only to later tumble to the ground. How little did I know that the breath taking view I enjoyed only two weeks earlier was now only a bitter sweet memory. I will never forget the sickening broken hearted feeling that morning. By Dave Fitch I was in my car going on a sales call and the first that I heard about the plane hitting the World Trade Center, the first thing came to mind was either a sightseeing aircraft or someone in a small plane. When I arrived at my sales call they informed me it was a large aircraft. On my way to the next sales call, I arrived and everyone was watching the t.v. and the second plane had crashed. I could not believe it. Then of course, many of the cell phone lines were shut down along with some 800 services. The real weird thing was there were no planes flying. By Barry Bro w ne On 9/11 my Brother-inlaw and I were fishing in Barnegat Bay, New Jersey. We were on anchor and the current had the transom of the boat facing north. We saw this column of smoke and Bill asked where that would be. I told him it looked to be about 60 miles away and that would make it New York City. We turned the radio on and they were just reporting that the second plane had just hit. These are just a few of the memories of 9/11 for Stone Creek residents. Yes, it will be a day we will not forget but we must also not forget the men and women who gave their lives to defend this country and the thousands more who deal with the scars of war each day. Stone Creek Veterans are helping the Ocala Ritz Veterans Village. It the Ritz Hotel located at 1205 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Recently, Harvey and Sandra Paskin donated two beds with all the bedding to the village. Barry Browne donated an easy chair, knives, forks and spoons. The donations were put in storage while the building is being remodeled. The director, Al Morrison, told the Veterans that they are need of coasters, coffee pots and George Foreman counter top stoves and grills. Check those cabinets for needed supplies and contact Dave Fitch at 352-2914953 to make a donation. Stone Creek Veterans continue to serve! Stone Cree k Re s i d ent w in s conte s t Paul Wilkes of Pinebrook won the Name the Bird contest for Ocala's Good Life magazine. There were over 50 entries and other Stone Creek residents also entered the contest. Paul named the bird Rio short for Retired in Ocala. According to Paul, "The bird represents or freedom to travel the area and to enjoy the many pleasures and benefits found here. Also, a small bird needs a small name." Way to Go, Paul! Congratulations! Stone Creek We remember! Patricia Gizzi Paul Wilkes

The terrorists had planned for that plane, Flight 93, to crash into the Capitol in Washington, DC. Approximately 3,000 people were killed in these attacks. Among those killed were 343 firefighters and 60 police officers from New York City and the Port Authority, and eight private emergency medical technicians and paramedics. Not only were citizens of our country victims, but also nationals of over 70 countries. It didnt take long for our officials to determine that these attacks were conducted by al-Queda. Suspicion was on Osama bin Laden, but he denied his involvement until 2004. Finally, in May of this year, bin Laden was located and killed. Currently, the memorial at the site of the World Trade Center was scheduled to open on September 11, 2011, and the new One World Trade Center tower is estimated to be completed by 2013. The Pentagon was repaired within a year. The Pentagon Memorial opened in 2008; the Flight 93 National Memorial was to be dedicated on September 10, 2011. Would you like a day in Tarpon Springs?

State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point W hen I was a young sportswriter, I used to cover high school football games, and barely noticed the band. They were just something to listen to during halftime while I added up my first-half statistics. Then something funny happened. I became a band parent for 12 straight years. No, it wasnt one child who had trouble getting out of high school. I had three sons, four years apart, who were all band members, so when one graduated, there was another to take his place. I quickly learned, from the first summer band camp, how hard these young people work at their craft. For many, band was a class, but it was also long, hard, hot practices getting ready for the shows. And they were great shows put together by an excellent band director. Those years changed my entire outlook on band programs. So now here we are in 2011, and schools are cutting budgets. In Marion County, that means some music programs are losHigh school bands need financial help Jim Clark Baseball strikes out O ne of the most moving ceremonies this past weekend remembering the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was the pregame event at Citi Field in New York before the Major League Baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets. ESPN did a great job covering all aspects of the remembrance. A group called Tuesdays Children, made up of youngsters who lost a parent on 9/11, took part, with each player taking the hand of a child as they came out on the field, and other children displaying a huge American flag in the outfield. As a tribute, players on the Mets wore hats from the various first responders, hats that said FDNY, NYPD, etc. But heres where things went south. When the game started minutes later and the Mets took the field, they all had their regular team hats on. Why? Because Major League Baseball officials promised hefty fines if they didnt. There are a number of causes that Major League Baseball honors. Once in a while, the players use pink bats and wear different color hats to honor the fight against breast cancer. Once a year all the players wear the same number, 42, to honor Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier 64 years ago. Weve also seen times when the players wore green. Once in a while, the teams wear uniforms with the name of the corresponding Negro League teams for their city. And recently, the Mets wore bright blue shirts that said Los Mets in honor of Hispanic Heritage Night at Citi Field. And every now and then, the players are forced to wear the ugly throwback uniforms that their teams wore 30, 40, 50 years ago. With all this going on, the players arent allowed to wear hats to honor the heroes and victims of the 9/11 terror attacks 10 years ago? Major League baseball has committed a number of public relations gaffes over the past several years. This is just another of them. There certainly would have been no harm in allowing the players to wear the special hats. In fact, it would have given a meaningless game between two non-contenders a real purpose. We have long been proponents of Congress repealing the baseball anti-trust exemption, which MLB has used to enhance its dictatorial ways. We call for that movement to start up again. The players had the right idea with what they wanted to do. Too bad the folks in the MLB ivory tower, which, by the way, is in New York not that far from Ground Zero, cant see outside their plush offices to see whats going on in the real world. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest column Is there a double dip in our future?By Jim Flynn To recapture the White House in 2012, Republicans will have to defeat the most clever U.S. politician since Bill Clinton, who managed to get re-elected in 1996 despite scandals, investigations, and persistent political sniping. Like movies, political campaigns attract fans with hoopla and charisma. Last week, in his seventh call for an attack on unemployment since entering the White House in 2008, President Obama made an invigorating re-election campaign speech about jobs and economic recovery to a national audience. Mr. Obama maneuvered the House of Representatives into granting a joint session of Congress as the setting for his address, a venue usually reserved for state-of-the-union speeches and declarations of war. Technically, the presidents speech was a bit of both. Of course, government has only one way to create jobs hiring more federal, state, and municipal employees, whose continued employment becomes a permanent obligation of taxpayers after federal stimulus money has been spent. Real job creation is the function of the private economy, which creates taxpayers, not tax receivers. Acknowledging that reality, the presidents new jobs plan includes extended unemployment benefits, continued payroll tax cuts for small businesses, tax credits for new hires, and construction and repairs to roads, bridges, and schools. For those who didnt notice, the presidents previous job stimulus, which promised to keep unemployment below 8 percent, was a total failure. Only 42 percent of people hired were unemployed. Most were musical chair transfers from other companies. Where was $800 billion of the first stimulus money spent? Aid to states for Medicaid, transportation, and housing; volunteering and social services; Indian reservations; energy and environment; commerce and science; food and farming; and tax cuts. When government throws huge amounts of money into the air, many dollars drift to unintended places and produce uncertain results. The certain beneficiaries of the presidents new jobs plan will be political supporters teachers, government employees, and unionized construction workers. Thats how the political game is played. Where will the funding come from? Clever politician that he is, Mr. Obama pushed that responsibility over to the Congressional committee of 12 who have to come up with $1.5 trillion in deficit cuts by Thanksgiving, as if another $450 billion shouldnt be a difficult squeeze. Meanwhile, Mr. Presidential candidate for re-election took his jobs-plan show on the road, beginning in the congressional districts of Republican House leaders Eric Cantor of Virginia and John Boehner of Ohio. In the hoopla part of the show, Mr. Obama is promising a more ambitious deficit plan in the next few weeks, meaning later. Good news which the president and Congress havent grasped or announced yet is that there will be no double dip. The Great Recession which began in December 2007 and was erroneously declared ended in June 2009 is alive and will continue to feed on debt and deficits until after the 2012 election or more likely longer.

The band members, parents and boosters and instructors all think thats wrong. So do I. All we hear from the politicians is that we have to improve education. Its important, they say. Even in President Obamas jobs speech last week, he spoke about education and fixing up the schools and rehiring teachers. But education is more than reading, writing and rithmetic. (If youre younger and dont know what rithmetic means, ask your parents to sing you the song School Days). Learning to appreciate the arts, even in a cursory way, is part of schooling. That includes things like music and art. To deprive students of those classes is to let them graduate with a less-than-complete education. Of course, not every child is interested in music, at least the type taught in school, or art. But they still need exposure to those programs. Cutting them, including music classes in younger grades and things like band in older classes, is counter-productive. So I hope the school officials can take a longer look at these programs and find a way to keep them going at full strength. The Day the Music Died should not be a part of the high school memories of our students. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

And they were great shows put together by an excellent band director. Those years changed my entire outlook on band programs. So now here we are in 2011, and schools are cutting budgets. In Marion County, that means some music programs are losHigh school bands need financial help Jim Clark Baseball strikes out O ne of the most moving ceremonies this past weekend remembering the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was the pregame event at Citi Field in New York before the Major League Baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and New York Mets. ESPN did a great job covering all aspects of the remembrance. A group called Tuesdays Children, made up of youngsters who lost a parent on 9/11, took part, with each player taking the hand of a child as they came out on the field, and other children displaying a huge American flag in the outfield. As a tribute, players on the Mets wore hats from the various first responders, hats that said FDNY, NYPD, etc. But heres where things went south. When the game started minutes later and the Mets took the field, they all had their regular team hats on. Why? Because Major League Baseball officials promised hefty fines if they didnt. There are a number of causes that Major League Baseball honors. Once in a while, the players use pink bats and wear different color hats to honor the fight against breast cancer. Once a year all the players wear the same number, 42, to honor Jackie Robinson, who broke the color barrier 64 years ago. Weve also seen times when the players wore green. Once in a while, the teams wear uniforms with the name of the corresponding Negro League teams for their city. And recently, the Mets wore bright blue shirts that said Los Mets in honor of Hispanic Heritage Night at Citi Field. And every now and then, the players are forced to wear the ugly throwback uniforms that their teams wore 30, 40, 50 years ago. With all this going on, the players arent allowed to wear hats to honor the heroes and victims of the 9/11 terror attacks 10 years ago? Major League baseball has committed a number of public relations gaffes over the past several years. This is just another of them. There certainly would have been no harm in allowing the players to wear the special hats. In fact, it would have given a meaningless game between two non-contenders a real purpose. We have long been proponents of Congress repealing the baseball anti-trust exemption, which MLB has used to enhance its dictatorial ways. We call for that movement to start up again. The players had the right idea with what they wanted to do. Too bad the folks in the MLB ivory tower, which, by the way, is in New York not that far from Ground Zero, cant see outside their plush offices to see whats going on in the real world. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest column Is there a double dip in our future?By Jim Flynn To recapture the White House in 2012, Republicans will have to defeat the most clever U.S. politician since Bill Clinton, who managed to get re-elected in 1996 despite scandals, investigations, and persistent political sniping. Like movies, political campaigns attract fans with hoopla and charisma. Last week, in his seventh call for an attack on unemployment since entering the White House in 2008, President Obama made an invigorating re-election campaign speech about jobs and economic recovery to a national audience. Mr. Obama maneuvered the House of Representatives into granting a joint session of Congress as the setting for his address, a venue usually reserved for state-of-the-union speeches and declarations of war. Technically, the presidents speech was a bit of both. Of course, government has only one way to create jobs hiring more federal, state, and municipal employees, whose continued employment becomes a permanent obligation of taxpayers after federal stimulus money has been spent. Real job creation is the function of the private economy, which creates taxpayers, not tax receivers. Acknowledging that reality, the presidents new jobs plan includes extended unemployment benefits, continued payroll tax cuts for small businesses, tax credits for new hires, and construction and repairs to roads, bridges, and schools. For those who didnt notice, the presidents previous job stimulus, which promised to keep unemployment below 8 percent, was a total failure. Only 42 percent of people hired were unemployed. Most were musical chair transfers from other companies. Where was $800 billion of the first stimulus money spent? Aid to states for Medicaid, transportation, and housing; volunteering and social services; Indian reservations; energy and environment; commerce and science; food and farming; and tax cuts. When government throws huge amounts of money into the air, many dollars drift to unintended places and produce uncertain results. The certain beneficiaries of the presidents new jobs plan will be political supporters teachers, government employees, and unionized construction workers. Thats how the political game is played. Where will the funding come from? Clever politician that he is, Mr. Obama pushed that responsibility over to the Congressional committee of 12 who have to come up with $1.5 trillion in deficit cuts by Thanksgiving, as if another $450 billion shouldnt be a difficult squeeze. Meanwhile, Mr. Presidential candidate for re-election took his jobs-plan show on the road, beginning in the congressional districts of Republican House leaders Eric Cantor of Virginia and John Boehner of Ohio. In the hoopla part of the show, Mr. Obama is promising a more ambitious deficit plan in the next few weeks, meaning later. Good news which the president and Congress havent grasped or announced yet is that there will be no double dip. The Great Recession which began in December 2007 and was erroneously declared ended in June 2009 is alive and will continue to feed on debt and deficits until after the 2012 election or more likely longer.

The band members, parents and boosters and instructors all think thats wrong. So do I. All we hear from the politicians is that we have to improve education. Its important, they say. Even in President Obamas jobs speech last week, he spoke about education and fixing up the schools and rehiring teachers. But education is more than reading, writing and rithmetic. (If youre younger and dont know what rithmetic means, ask your parents to sing you the song School Days). Learning to appreciate the arts, even in a cursory way, is part of schooling. That includes things like music and art. To deprive students of those classes is to let them graduate with a less-than-complete education. Of course, not every child is interested in music, at least the type taught in school, or art. But they still need exposure to those programs. Cutting them, including music classes in younger grades and things like band in older classes, is counter-productive. So I hope the school officials can take a longer look at these programs and find a way to keep them going at full strength. The Day the Music Died should not be a part of the high school memories of our students. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

The terrorists had planned for that plane, Flight 93, to crash into the Capitol in Washington, DC. Approximately 3,000 people were killed in these attacks. Among those killed were 343 firefighters and 60 police officers from New York City and the Port Authority, and eight private emergency medical technicians and paramedics. Not only were citizens of our country victims, but also nationals of over 70 countries. It didnt take long for our officials to determine that these attacks were conducted by al-Queda. Suspicion was on Osama bin Laden, but he denied his involvement until 2004. Finally, in May of this year, bin Laden was located and killed. Currently, the memorial at the site of the World Trade Center was scheduled to open on September 11, 2011, and the new One World Trade Center tower is estimated to be completed by 2013.

Use this period to check out situations that soon will require a lot of serious decision-making. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep that keen Bovine mind focused on your financial situation as it begins to undergo some changes. Consider your money moves carefully. Avoid impulsive investments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Youll need to adjust some of your financial plans now that things are changing more quickly than you expected. All the facts you need havent yet emerged, so move cautiously. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Personal and professional relationships dominate this period. Try to keep things uncomplicated to avoid misunderstandings that can cause problems down the line. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) That elusive goal youd been hoping to claim is still just out of reach. But something else has come along that could prove just as desirable, if only you would take the time to check it out. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to get away for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Youll return refreshed and ready to take on the workplace challenge that awaits you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Confidence grows as you work your way through some knotty situations. Watch out for distractions from well-meaning supporters that could slow things down. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Consider spending more time contemplating the possibilities of an offer before opting to accept or reject it. But once you make a decision, act on it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Youre in a very strong position this week to tie up loose ends in as many areas as possible. Someone close to you has advice you might want to heed.

ACCEPTING MEDICAID INCLUDING CHILDRENS CLEANINGS, FILLINGS AND SEALANTS T he Stone Creek Veterans sponsored the first Friday Social for September in honor of 9/11. 240+ residents attended along with eight villa guests. All took part in an enjoyable evening of live music provided by "One Flight Up", dancing and a chance to chat with friends and neighbors. Residents were asked to decorate their table in a patriotic theme to accommodate ten people. There were many wonderful table decorations and table 5 was selected. Debbie Beitel, Debbie Gray Karen Snelson decorated this winning table with items from Karen Stein. The judges said, "It was a tough decision. Lots of creativity and thought went into the decorating." Lynn Cooper observed, "From looking at the food on the tables, it was unbelievable what some brought for their 'snacks', some were dinners. Too bad we(judges) could not go to all the tables and sample the various delicacies being offered." Attendees also brought many items for the Veterans' project Operation Shoebox What I w a s per s onally d oing on Sept 11 2001 Each of us can recall what we were doing on 9/11. I was in a classroom in Newark, Delaware when I was given a memo to read. It said do not read this out loud. It told us that our country was attacked and we were not to tell the children what happened as parents were already coming to school to pick up their children. I looked across the room at my teaching partner and tried to go on. What do you say to 4th graders who lives and those of all of us were forever changed on that day? By John El d er At that time I was living in a corporate provided apartment in Hacksack, New Jersey. From the building's roof top I could plainly see the New York City skyline only 11 miles away. Two weeks prior to 9/11 I was on the thirteen story roof top taking in the scenic view. I remember commenting to some friends how beautiful the World Trade Towers were reflecting the evening's sunset. What man made had made, God sun's rays glistened against the building with approval. However, on 9/11 I was on a business trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. As I was in my room preparing for an early morning telephone conference with our New Jersey home office, I received a call from my mother in South Carolina to turn on the TV. I watched in horror as the second tower came under attack only to later tumble to the ground. How little did I know that the breath taking view I enjoyed only two weeks earlier was now only a bitter sweet memory. I will never forget the sickening broken hearted feeling that morning. By Dave Fitch I was in my car going on a sales call and the first that I heard about the plane hitting the World Trade Center, the first thing came to mind was either a sightseeing aircraft or someone in a small plane. When I arrived at my sales call they informed me it was a large aircraft. On my way to the next sales call, I arrived and everyone was watching the t.v. and the second plane had crashed. I could not believe it. Then of course, many of the cell phone lines were shut down along with some 800 services. The real weird thing was there were no planes flying. By Barry Bro w ne On 9/11 my Brother-inlaw and I were fishing in Barnegat Bay, New Jersey. We were on anchor and the current had the transom of the boat facing north. We saw this column of smoke and Bill asked where that would be. I told him it looked to be about 60 miles away and that would make it New York City. We turned the radio on and they were just reporting that the second plane had just hit. These are just a few of the memories of 9/11 for Stone Creek residents. Yes, it will be a day we will not forget but we must also not forget the men and women who gave their lives to defend this country and the thousands more who deal with the scars of war each day. Stone Creek Veterans are helping the Ocala Ritz Veterans Village. It the Ritz Hotel located at 1205 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Recently, Harvey and Sandra Paskin donated two beds with all the bedding to the village. Barry Browne donated an easy chair, knives, forks and spoons. The donations were put in storage while the building is being remodeled. The director, Al Morrison, told the Veterans that they are need of coasters, coffee pots and George Foreman counter top stoves and grills. Check those cabinets for needed supplies and contact Dave Fitch at 352-2914953 to make a donation. Stone Creek Veterans continue to serve! Stone Cree k Re s i d ent w in s conte s t Paul Wilkes of Pinebrook won the Name the Bird contest for Ocala's Good Life magazine. There were over 50 entries and other Stone Creek residents also entered the contest. Paul named the bird Rio short for Retired in Ocala. According to Paul, "The bird represents or freedom to travel the area and to enjoy the many pleasures and benefits found here. Also, a small bird needs a small name." Way to Go, Paul! Congratulations! Stone Creek We remember! Patricia Gizzi Paul Wilkes

With the return of many of our residents who disappear during the summer months, the timing is perfect for new gatherings to take place. Many of us have missed the regular potluck dinners which always prove to add pounds even if we are trying to shed a few. We make the sacrifice and make sure not to hurt any neighbors feelings by not partaking of their contribution to what often seems like a feast. We have so many extraordinary cooks in our community that it is a challenge to try not to overindulge. Our Labor Day Celebration held on Sunday, Sept. 4, rather than Monday, Sept. 5, proved to be one of those special times when everyone was truly enjoying themselves. The food was delicious; the conversations were interesting; and the entertainment was exceptional Bart Rich provided music and a special entertaining feature when he read a humorous account of why an Indiana resiOur social activities are back on track dent moved to Florida many years ago. Bart attributed the hilarious piece about the snow in the winter and this one persons particular consternation with the local snow plows and the snow plow operators to one of our most popular neighbors, R. B. Weller. Everyone knows what a really good sport R.B. (Bryce) is, and he was again about this comical piece. He even added a few additional comments which made the audience laugh even more enthusiastically. When we gather as we did to celebrate our country and its legacies, there is always a terrific show of national pride and patriotism. Tears can be seen in the eyes of many when we speak of the sacrifices made for the freedom that we in Fairfield Village do not take for granted. This is just another example of the fact that our community is a fun place to be and genuinely is a lively place filled with lovely people. Priscilla Geissal See FAIRFIELD Page 11 The SAC group that put together a tremendously successful Labor Day Celebration stand together and receive applause from the Fairfield Village community. FAIRFIELDcontinued from Page 2 Eilene Yodonin and John Scott show what a good time they are having at Fairfield Village's Labor Day event. Becky Weller chuckles good-naturedly as Bart Rick attributes his humorous story to her husband, R.B.

Two charity golf events to take place Saturday PHOTO BY JIM CLARKAllen and Cheryl Eagleson of Quail Meadow were on hand for the 9/11 memorial event at Veterans Park last Saturday morning. Ocala remembers Every year I get sad, and every year I get mad PHOTO BY JIM CLARKBernadette Castro speaks at the memorial. By Jim Clark E DITOR The Ocala area remembered over the weekend as the nation recalled the 10th anniversary of the attacks on America on Sept. 11, 2001. In a touching ceremony at Veterans Park on Saturday, the crowd heard the solemn ringing of the bells, listened to a 21-gun salute, watched the solemn presentation of the colors accompanied by somber bagpipe music, and heard speakers describe the emotions of the day. The Keynote speaker was Bernadette Castro, a part-time Ocala resident who was a Parks Commissioner in New York City 10 Please see OCALA Page 12 years ago. She said when she saw a big plane hit the first tower, all knew that the people in that tower above where it hit could not survive. When the second plane hit, she said, We all knew this was an attack on America. She noted the lack of survivors when she said her husband, a surgeon, called from the hospital that triage units were set up, but not that many patients were seen. New York blood centers collected 36,000 units of blood, but only 260 were used. As a member of the citys Cabinet, she attended 13 funerals. We were going to funerals not days later, not weeks later, but months later, she added. She said the attackers were bad, evil men, led by the most evil man, who wanted to divide us. Instead they united us. She criticized the current city rules. I dont get why 9/11 firefighters and NYPD are not allowed at the ceremony, nor are chaplains. Castro noted that the anniversary always stirs up memories. Every year I get sad, and every year I get mad. She praised Americans, saying, Were resilient, were free, were brave and we love our fellow man. Castro was introduced by Undersheriff Dan Kuhn, who was the master of ceremonies. Ann Schulz sang the National Anthem, and Mayor Randy Ewers welcomed the crowd. History of the 5-5-5 bells was given by Michael Mongeluzzo, who retired from the Fire Department of New York. Military members laid a wreath near a piece of steel that had been obtained from the World Trade Center. The Kingdom of the Sun Band played before and during the ceremony. By Jim Clark E DITOR The memories of 9/11 are very real for high school student Christian Suarez. The young man lost his father, a firefighter, in the Twin Towers. Sally, I love you and Im not coming home, was the brief message that Benjamin Suarez said to his wife. He was in Tower 2 when it collapsed. His body was never found. Christian led the audience at Saturdays ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
