On Sept. 29, staff will present the results of this review process at a community meeting. Citizens are invited to attend the presentation and provide feedback on the proposed plan updates. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the Growth Management Training Room, 2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd. For more information, contact Justin Ryan at Growth Management (Planning Division) at 352438-2600. In a unanimous vote during their Sept. 20 board meeting, Marion County commissioners adopted a new fee schedule for the countys Building Department, reducing fees for 83 different types of permits. The new rates will go into effect Oct. 1 and affect projects taking place in unincorporated Marion County, McIntosh and Reddick. The commission is enacting the change after a cost-analysis review to analyze the base amount of funds needed to operate the Building Department. The review results indicated permit fees could be decreased without affecting the departments operational budget. The departments budget is funded through revenues generated from permit fees. Homeowners and contractors will see reductions of more than $95 in some permit types through the new fee schedule. For example, permits for above-ground pools have decreased from $159 to $63, air conditioning unit change-outs have decreased from $87 to $73, and re-roofs for single family or duplex residences have decreased from $159 to $123 and to one fee of $246 for a three to six multi-family unit homes as opposed to $159 per unit. The Building Department adjusted the fees by calculating the costs associated with issuing each type of permit. At a time when the economy is at an all-time low, the County Commission and Marion County Building Department have made a tangible effort to assist citizens and business owners by lowering fees and implementing this new fee schedule, said Stan McClain, chairman of the County Commission.

U.S. high school students and their teachers are invited to participate in the Bill of Rights Institutes sixth annual Being an American Essay Contest. The largest contest of its kind in the country, the Being an American Essay Contest explores the Founding principles outlined in the Constitution. The contest is administered by the Bill of Rights Institute, a non-profit educational organization in the Washington, D.C. area devoted to educating young people about the Constitution and Founding principles. The 2011-2012 contest is sponsored by the History Channel. This contest is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to think about the important Founding principles communicated in our Constitution, said Dr. Jason Ross, Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs. pThis context is vital to helping students see their Founding principles as a meaningful part of the American experiment of self-government. Specifically, students are asked to share their thoughts on the Constitution by answering the following question: How does the Constitution establish and maintain a culture of liberty? The top three student winners from each of the five geographical regions will be awarded cash prizes of $1,000 (First Place), $500 (Second Place), and $250 (Third Place). Teacher sponsors for each student winner will also receive a cash prize of $100. The contest not only honors and awards sponsoring teachers, but also equips them with free lesson plans and other supplemental materials that meet state and national academic standards so they can easily incorporate the essay contest into their classrooms. The Contest is really a tribute to the excellent work teachers do in the important task of civic education, said Ross. Over 80,000 students have participated in the essay contest since it began in 2006. We are pleased to support the Bill of Rights Institutes Being an American Essay Contest, said Dr. Libby O'Connell, SVP Corporate Outreach and Chief Historian, History Channel. "The contest encourages students to think critically and truly makes the past relevant in their lives today." Complete contest details can be found below. Further information, including submission criteria, lesson plans and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and the Founding principles are available at www.BillofRightsInstitute.org/Contest. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, September 28, 2011 11 2Wednesday, September 28, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 0009A8O 23rd Annual Central Florida Peanut Festival Calling all Calling all antique tractors! antique tractors!

Thanks to friend, Carole Frazzetto who contacted me about Ginny, I was able to learn about this milestone birthday. Ginny was born Sept. 16, 1921, in St. Louis, Missouri. On Saturday, Ginny, who was born Virginia Lucille Gigamaroa, celebrated her 90th birthday with 50 guests composed of family and friends. Ginnys parents were immigrants from Sicily but when it came time for her to fall in love, she found a tall Swedish man named Edward Snelson. They called him Skip and he and Ginny were married for 62 years. They had one son whom they named Edward Snelson, Jr. Ginny now lives with her son, Ed, and daughter-in-law, Karen. She is a grandmother to five and a great-grandmother to three boys. Ginny retired from Nabisco in St. Louis after working for them for 32 years. Ginny has many hobbies. She loves reading Danielle Steel books but her true passion is cards. She plays ladies poker every Wednesday with a Stone Creek group called the Poker Babes. Wednesday has become her favorite day of the week. On Monday evenings, she plays Pinochle and twice a month she plays Bunco. Her daughter-inlaw, Karen says, Her love of life and resilient nature combined with her love of food is what has kept Ginny young at heart. She no longer cooks but has taught Karen how to make Italian hamburgers. You add basil, oregano, garlic, parmesan cheese and ketchup to meat and make into patties. Yum, says Karen. Karen says Ginnys lasagna was also great. Her son, Edward, says his mother is wonderful and there is nothing she would not do for those she loves. She loves her life here at Stone Creek and feels so fortunate to be living such a great lifestyle. Many of us here will echo her sentiments. Happy 90th Birthday, Ginny! May you be blessed with many more. For some 1921 Trivia FDR was 39 when he contracted Polio in 1921. Chanel Number 5 perfume What were you doing 90 years ago? Patricia Gizzi was introduced; Irving Berlins song, All By Myself became popular and, of course, Virginia Gigamaroa was born! More shade The lan Spa outdoor pool has gotten more shade. Due to the requests of many residents, Linda Man, fitness director and Rick Morang worked on accomplishing this project. The 30 by 40 by 9 foot structure was installed by Creative Shade Solutions. There are presently 40 chairs under the structure. For those wanting more shade at the pool, it is now available. Thanks Linda and Rick for making this happen. VeteransDon Hunt from the veterans wants everyone to know that the closets are bare, bare, bare. The pantry is in need of the following items: cereals, dry pastas, jellies, peanut butter, vegetables, canned pastas, dry food items. The drive will take place from Oct. 3 to 10 and he asks everyone to please be generous to help our fellow neighbors in Ocala in need of food. Ginny Snelson, center, receives love and attention from her son and daughter-inlaw, Edward and Karen Frazzetto.

That very thing will be happening coming up on Saturday, Oct. 8, at 5 p.m. in the Fairfield Village Clubhouse. The Social Activities Committee is looking forward to the spaghetti dinner event not only for the fun involved but also with hopes of beginning to fill the rather diminished coffers of the organization. The tickets for the dinner must be purchased no later than Oct. 5 so that the planning will allow for a bit of a profit margin. There are a number of upcoming events for fall and winter that are not revenue producing; therefore, some fiscal responsibility must be part of the planning. The really good cooks who are part of the SAC promise a great meal at a very good price only $6 per person which promises to please the individuals palate as well as the individuals purse. (How is that for another feeble attempt at alliteration?) Tickets may be purchased from the following ladies. Please be sure to contact one of them prior to the deadline of Oct. 5 so that the clubhouse can be full of lots of people who are ready to enjoy the Italian menu and the camaraderie of good friends. The menu for the evening is: Spaghetti and Meatballs, Salad, Texas Toast, Dessert, Coffee, Iced Tea and Lemonade. Wine will also be served. For tickets contact one of the following who will be happy to help you: Loretta Zang lorzangmyway@earthlink.net 352291-6644. Sandi Ford sandi945@aol.com 352237-7407.

Spaghetti dinner planned for Saturday, Oct. 8 Priscilla Geissal Fairfield Village Clubhouse looks very welcoming on the outside. People attending the Spaghetti Dinner on Oct. 8 at 5 p.m. should expect much more of a personal welcome on the inside as they gather for a nice dinner.

The FairTax is a bill in Congress (HR 25 in the House/S13 in the Senate) that has been getting a good deal of consideration as we face a gloomy economic future. The FairTax would completely REPLACE the income tax system, boost the economy and create jobs, eliminate the need for the IRS, makes sure everyone pays their fair share and ensures that no citizen or legal resident pays taxes up to the poverty line.

It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. G EM INI ( May 21 to J une 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects.

I must be the only one in this world of ours that truly appreciates quietness. Maybe its old-age stomping its tired old boots, but I think the world has gotten just a little bit noisier. As I got older, I thought my hearing would begin to diminish. I assure you, I am hearing more today than I have ever wanted to hear in all my life. I remember my grandfather and his hearing aid. When there was a family gathering and he was sitting quietly smiling, I came to understand he had turned his hearing aid off. How I envy him now. If only I could turn my hearing aid off. I have tried ignoring my wife, but I can assure you that was not a very good plan. To ignore your wife is to place your health in dire jeopardy. Who wants Alex Trebek breathing down your neck? Ill take American history for $100, Alex. Not long ago I had to take a trip flying the friendly skies. I do not mind flying, but it is not my favorite mode of travel. I would rather stay at home and dream of traveling. On a recent trip, I happened to sit next to an elderly man. We exchanged pleasantries and I settled down with a book hoping to get in a few pages before the trip ended. I had selected a very special book for this trip. My elderly friend settled down with the full intention of rehearsing to me his entire autobiography. For an old gentleman, he had a fantastic memory. I think, but do not quote me here, he recited to me every blessed day of his life. If my recollection is correct, and I know I was brain fuzzy during the whole process, he related one incident at least four different times. Either he is the father of Groundhog Day, or many things in his life happened repeatedly. Last week I went to get my haircut at a local hair salon. I usually go to a particular one near my house and I stopped in for my regular haircut. A few people were ahead of me, so I sat down, picked up a magazine and was going to have a pleasant time waiting my turn. Not paying too much attention to the clientele, there was sitting next to me a very nice little girl. I made one mistake. I looked at her and said, And how are you today, little girl? That was the last sentence I got in for the next hour. She talked so much I thought her tongue would fall out. Then she talked some more and I thought my ears would fall off. How can anybody so young have so much to say? I am 10 times her age and I do not have one 10th as much to say to her, as she had to say to me. Who in the world is teaching these children to talk? Then, in the middle of her chat diarrhea, she looked at me and said, What do you think about that, mister? Not expecting it and not really knowing what she was talking about, I hesitated for a moment. My second mistake. Before I could take a good breath, she began her chat diarrhea as though she was just beginning. She was probably about six years of age with not a very large vocabulary but she knew how to use every word in her vocabulary a multitude of times. Some of her sentences were five minutes long, and at the end, I had no idea what she was saying. The end of her sentence had no apparent relationship to the beginning of her sentence. And the middle, well, who could follow that. Oh, how I pity her English teacher. I date back to the time before cell phones. I know not many people are living today who dates back that far. We have become a generation of cell phones. Before the cell phone era, that was the day, I could sneak off somewhere and nobody could find me. Oh, how I envy those glorious days of yesteryear. Now I pack one of those blasted cell phones wherever I go. No matter where I am, somebody can get a hold of me. When I say somebody, I am actually referring to my wife. As it stands now, I am within dialing distance of her Majesty. Thinking about this I have come up with, maybe not a solution, but at least a little reprieve for those of us who are tired of the noise. I propose a national noise-free-day celebrated every year. For 24 hours, nobody would be permitted to say anything. I know this would hit the politicians rather hard. Everybody knows if a politician does not speak for a 24-hour period the fickle electorate would forget about him or her. And, for a politician not to say anything for a 24-hour period it would cause him or her to die of suffocation. Actually, in either case the American public wins. This brings me to my favorite Bible verse. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth (Psalms 46:10 KJV). It is in the stillness that we begin to know God. What would happen if for a brief moment each day we became still before the presence of God? The Rev. James L.

The church website is www.whatafellowship.com. D o you remember the song that began When the love bug bites, you dont know where to scratch? Well, the little black bugs with us now dont bite they are just pests. They are known as love bugs and we are unfortunate enough to have them visit us every May and September. There are several tales of the origin of these pesky critters. The story told most often is they were part of an experiment at the University of Florida and were accidently released from the experiment station. This is FALSE! Neither were they bio-engineered to be used to rid the state of mosquitoes. Love bugs do not eat mosquitoes in fact, the adults do not eat at all and the larvae feed on decaying plant material. These critters are native to Central America. The best guess of how they arrived in the USA is they were stowaways on ships that arrived in Galveston or New Orleans around 1920. They migrated to Florida in 1947, liked us, and so decided to stay. The annoying problem with these pests is that they can be destructive to the paint on your cars. They can cause a big problem when traveling and your windshield gets blasted with a swarm of the bugs. Large swarms can also get into your radiators and cause problems. You might want to consider investing in a bug screen for your car. One suggestion for easy removal of the bugs from your car is to spray the front of the car with Pam. Oh, well, September is almost over and hopefully the love bugs (also called the honeymoon fly, doubleheaded bug, and united bug) will be gone until May. Just remember the last line of the Love Bug song: It makes the old feel young, and the poor feel rich and maybe that will make you forget what pesky critters they are. Notes Many of our snowbirds have returned! Were always glad to see the return of our residents. Reminders: There are still a few seats available on the bus for the trip to Tarpon Springs on Oct. 5. Call Carolyn (352-629-5993) for reservations. Flu Shots: The sign-up sheet is in the clubhouse. Shots will be given on Oct. 11 at the clubhouse. A Red Hat workshop is scheduled for Friday at 1 p.m. We are working on the ornaments for the annual Christmas tree. The Social Committee will meet on Monday, Oct. 3, to finalize plans for Octoberfest. This meeting will follow the regular QMRPOA business meeting. Today, Sept. 28, beginning at sunset, is the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah. This is the beginning of the Jewish New Year 5772. The holiday ends at sunset on Sept. 30. It is customary for the year to be celebrated by eating apples dipped in honey to symbolize a sweet new year. Rosh Hashanah marks the start of a new year in the Hebrew calendar (one of four new year observances that define various legal years for different purposes as explained in the Mishnah and Talmud). It is the New Year for people, animals, and legal contracts. Jews believe Rosh Hashanah represents either figuratively or literally the creation of the World, or Universe. However, according to one view in the Talmud, Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of man, and five days earlier was the first day of creation of the universe. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, September 28, 2011 5 8Wednesday, September 28, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 0009DDR www.wickertractorsales.com Full line of Club Cadet products available!

State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point L ast week, while on vacation, I had given thought to going to my high schools 50th class reunion for the Class of 1961. Where most schools do the ceremony in the fall of what would have been your senior year, Bergen Catholic does it three months after the 50th anniversary of the actual graduation day in June 1961. I dont travel as well as I used to, so I dutifully filled out the questionnaire but didnt make the trip. In going over those 50 years, it made me think of things that have come into our language in all that time. If you had mentioned some of these words back in 1961, and if youre someone who remembers picking up the phone and hearing Number, please, then here are the responses you would have gotten: Whats a microwave oven? Whats a personal computer? Whats a hard drive? What is software? What is the Internet? What does online mean? What is cyberspace? Whats a webcam? Whats a blog? What is cable television?

Remembering the last 50 years Congress goes at it once more J ust when you thought it was safe to go into the water, here come the jaws of Congress to make things insecure. As of this writing, Congress is locked in another battle over spending, this time slowing down disaster relief to millions and, once again, creating the problem of a possible upcoming government shutdown. The people in Congress just dont get it. The people want the lawmakers to work together to solve the problems. That means a little give-and-take on both sides. The Democrats should have gotten the message loud and clear in the election of 2010, when the Republicans took over the House and made gains in the Senate. They should realize that the trend could continue in 2012, possibly carrying all the way through to the presidential election. However, theres another way to look at it. The Republicans may be losing momentum by refusing to compromise, and that could backfire next year. Voters might consider that having one party in charge of all three entities, the House, Senate and presidency, would be an advantage, and they could look upon the GOP as the creators of all the ill will. That could mean the Republicans could lose all those gains from last year, and if that happens, that party will be dead in our lifetime. So it behooves both sides to get to working together to solve our problems, mainly the financial debacle we find ourselves in. If they dont, no incumbent will be safe in 2012, even newly elected GOP members. Come to think of it, maybe thats not such a bad idea. Since we dont have a federal law imposing term limits, maybe the voters should implement such a law themselves. A complete turnover in Congress every few years might bring some new fresh ideas to the floor of the House and Senate. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest column Domestic challenge finds a championBy Jim Flynn S PECIALTOTHEM ESSENGER Every White House administration likes to have its First Lady dedicated to a significant domestic cause. Mrs. Obama began gradually in 2009 by turning over some expensive grass and planting a victory garden in the White House back yard. At the time it was unclear whether her cause would be nutrition or farming. A concern arose when it was discovered that the first crop from Obama Acres might not be wholesome. In support of environmental awareness, former residents Bill and Hilary Clinton had White House sewage sludge spread as fertilizer on the White House lawn. After careful investigation, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the White House sod a fit-togrow-food seal of approval. The success of the first year crop motivated Mrs. O to expand the White House garden to 1500 square feet in 2010. Its a big back yard. In March of this year Mrs. O and willing workers from local grammar schools planted a third garden of cabbage, collards, cauliflower, Swiss chard, beets, and other yummy and yukky veggies. The president does not like beets. Washington believes Americans respond best to domestic challenges which are treated with the same seriousness as military conflicts for example the war on poverty and the war on drugs. Mrs. Os challenge is a war on obesity, which she calls a threat to national security. Like all causes, the war on obesity is generating positive and negative comment. A TV personality on the Food Network has suggested making the war on obesity a global human rights issue, just as important as climate change. As a human rights problem obesity can be viewed as a result of deprivation and oppression, in need of significant government intervention and assistance. On the other hand two research fellows at the Democracy Institute authored a put-down titled Diet Nation: Exposing the Obesity Crusade. They call it a manufactured epidemic. An early achievement of the war on obesity has been motivating FDA to finish a project it began in 2003 to redesign the boxes, cans, cartons, and labels for every food product. After eight years, FDA credits its sudden inspiration and production to major advances in nutrition regulations by the Obama administration. The next inspired accomplishment of FDA is menu labeling regulations for restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, convenience stores, coffee chains, and vending machines. We doubt there is anyone with access to news and information who hasnt heard that the primary cause of overweight is more calories consumed than calories burned in other words bad eating habits and lack of physical activity. We who are skeptical about new government initiatives have to wonder whether the White House garden was a planned prelude to the declaration of war on obesity an expansion of the granny state. We wonder how long will it be until the White House asks Congress to create an FDA obesity bureau to manage the war on fat. Maybe the funding can be raised by erecting a vegetable stand on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Where most schools do the ceremony in the fall of what would have been your senior year, Bergen Catholic does it three months after the 50th anniversary of the actual graduation day in June 1961. I dont travel as well as I used to, so I dutifully filled out the questionnaire but didnt make the trip. In going over those 50 years, it made me think of things that have come into our language in all that time. If you had mentioned some of these words back in 1961, and if youre someone who remembers picking up the phone and hearing Number, please, then here are the responses you would have gotten: Whats a microwave oven?

I must be the only one in this world of ours that truly appreciates quietness. Maybe its old-age stomping its tired old boots, but I think the world has gotten just a little bit noisier. As I got older, I thought my hearing would begin to diminish. I assure you, I am hearing more today than I have ever wanted to hear in all my life. I remember my grandfather and his hearing aid. When there was a family gathering and he was sitting quietly smiling, I came to understand he had turned his hearing aid off. How I envy him now. If only I could turn my hearing aid off. I have tried ignoring my wife, but I can assure you that was not a very good plan. To ignore your wife is to place your health in dire jeopardy. Who wants Alex Trebek breathing down your neck? Ill take American history for $100, Alex. Not long ago I had to take a trip flying the friendly skies. I do not mind flying, but it is not my favorite mode of travel. I would rather stay at home and dream of traveling. On a recent trip, I happened to sit next to an elderly man. We exchanged pleasantries and I settled down with a book hoping to get in a few pages before the trip ended. I had selected a very special book for this trip. My elderly friend settled down with the full intention of rehearsing to me his entire autobiography. For an old gentleman, he had a fantastic memory. I think, but do not quote me here, he recited to me every blessed day of his life. If my recollection is correct, and I know I was brain fuzzy during the whole process, he related one incident at least four different times. Either he is the father of Groundhog Day, or many things in his life happened repeatedly. Last week I went to get my haircut at a local hair salon. I usually go to a particular one near my house and I stopped in for my regular haircut. A few people were ahead of me, so I sat down, picked up a magazine and was going to have a pleasant time waiting my turn. Not paying too much attention to the clientele, there was sitting next to me a very nice little girl. I made one mistake. I looked at her and said, And how are you today, little girl? That was the last sentence I got in for the next hour. She talked so much I thought her tongue would fall out. Then she talked some more and I thought my ears would fall off. How can anybody so young have so much to say? I am 10 times her age and I do not have one 10th as much to say to her, as she had to say to me. Who in the world is teaching these children to talk? Then, in the middle of her chat diarrhea, she looked at me and said, What do you think about that, mister? Not expecting it and not really knowing what she was talking about, I hesitated for a moment. My second mistake. Before I could take a good breath, she began her chat diarrhea as though she was just beginning. She was probably about six years of age with not a very large vocabulary but she knew how to use every word in her vocabulary a multitude of times. Some of her sentences were five minutes long, and at the end, I had no idea what she was saying. The end of her sentence had no apparent relationship to the beginning of her sentence. And the middle, well, who could follow that. Oh, how I pity her English teacher. I date back to the time before cell phones. I know not many people are living today who dates back that far. We have become a generation of cell phones. Before the cell phone era, that was the day, I could sneak off somewhere and nobody could find me. Oh, how I envy those glorious days of yesteryear. Now I pack one of those blasted cell phones wherever I go. No matter where I am, somebody can get a hold of me. When I say somebody, I am actually referring to my wife. As it stands now, I am within dialing distance of her Majesty. Thinking about this I have come up with, maybe not a solution, but at least a little reprieve for those of us who are tired of the noise. I propose a national noise-free-day celebrated every year. For 24 hours, nobody would be permitted to say anything. I know this would hit the politicians rather hard. Everybody knows if a politician does not speak for a 24-hour period the fickle electorate would forget about him or her. And, for a politician not to say anything for a 24-hour period it would cause him or her to die of suffocation. Actually, in either case the American public wins. This brings me to my favorite Bible verse. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth (Psalms 46:10 KJV). It is in the stillness that we begin to know God. What would happen if for a brief moment each day we became still before the presence of God? The Rev. James L.

Well, the little black bugs with us now dont bite they are just pests. They are known as love bugs and we are unfortunate enough to have them visit us every May and September. There are several tales of the origin of these pesky critters. The story told most often is they were part of an experiment at the University of Florida and were accidently released from the experiment station. This is FALSE! Neither were they bio-engineered to be used to rid the state of mosquitoes. Love bugs do not eat mosquitoes in fact, the adults do not eat at all and the larvae feed on decaying plant material. These critters are native to Central America. The best guess of how they arrived in the USA is they were stowaways on ships that arrived in Galveston or New Orleans around 1920. They migrated to Florida in 1947, liked us, and so decided to stay. The annoying problem with these pests is that they can be destructive to the paint on your cars. They can cause a big problem when traveling and your windshield gets blasted with a swarm of the bugs. Large swarms can also get into your radiators and cause problems. You might want to consider investing in a bug screen for your car. One suggestion for easy removal of the bugs from your car is to spray the front of the car with Pam. Oh, well, September is almost over and hopefully the love bugs (also called the honeymoon fly, doubleheaded bug, and united bug) will be gone until May. Just remember the last line of the Love Bug song: It makes the old feel young, and the poor feel rich and maybe that will make you forget what pesky critters they are. Notes Many of our snowbirds have returned! Were always glad to see the return of our residents. Reminders: There are still a few seats available on the bus for the trip to Tarpon Springs on Oct. 5. Call Carolyn (352-629-5993) for reservations. Flu Shots: The sign-up sheet is in the clubhouse. Shots will be given on Oct. 11 at the clubhouse. A Red Hat workshop is scheduled for Friday at 1 p.m. We are working on the ornaments for the annual Christmas tree. The Social Committee will meet on Monday, Oct. 3, to finalize plans for Octoberfest. This meeting will follow the regular QMRPOA business meeting. Today, Sept. 28, beginning at sunset, is the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah. This is the beginning of the Jewish New Year 5772. The holiday ends at sunset on Sept. 30. It is customary for the year to be celebrated by eating apples dipped in honey to symbolize a sweet new year. Rosh Hashanah marks the start of a new year in the Hebrew calendar (one of four new year observances that define various legal years for different purposes as explained in the Mishnah and Talmud). It is the New Year for people, animals, and legal contracts. Jews believe Rosh Hashanah represents either figuratively or literally the creation of the World, or Universe. However, according to one view in the Talmud, Rosh Hashanah commemorates the creation of man, and five days earlier was the first day of creation of the universe. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, September 28, 2011 5 8Wednesday, September 28, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 0009DDR www.wickertractorsales.com Full line of Club Cadet products available!

We will discuss what the FairTax is, how we can combat the critics and how we can help to get the FairTax enacted. The FairTax is a bill in Congress (HR 25 in the House/S13 in the Senate) that has been getting a good deal of consideration as we face a gloomy economic future. The FairTax would completely REPLACE the income tax system, boost the economy and create jobs, eliminate the need for the IRS, makes sure everyone pays their fair share and ensures that no citizen or legal resident pays taxes up to the poverty line.

In the meantime, you might want to consider shifting your focus to another area of your life that needs attention. TA U R U S ( April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for beauty-loving Bovines to enjoy something special for the senses. It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. G EM INI ( May 21 to J une 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects. Rushing things could be counter-productive. CA N CER (J une 21 to J uly 22) Tensions begin to ease in those once-testy relationships. This helps create a more positive aspect all around. Expect to hear news that could lead you to rethink a recent decision. LEO (J uly 23 to Aug 22) The pace of activity that had slowed last week now begins to pick up. This is good news for Leos and Leonas who have career-building plans that need to be put into operation. VI R G O ( Aug 23 to Sept 22) Venus offers encouragement to romance-seeking Virgos who are ready to get up, get out and meet more people, one of whom could be that long-sought soul mate. L I BRA ( Sept 23 to Oct 22) An ongoing problem with a coworker might need to be sent to arbitration. Get all your facts together so that you have a solid base from which to make your argument. SCORP I O ( Oct 23 to N o v. 21) You are usually decisive about most matters. But you might want to defer your decision-making this week until you get more facts. Someone is holding out on you. SA GI TTAR IU S (N o v. 22 to D ec 21) That quiet period is ending, and a new burst of activity creates some problems at the workplace. But things are soon resolved, and everything goes back to normal. CAPR I COR N (D ec 22 to J an 19) Relationships could be either helpful or hurtful as you pursue your career goals. You might have to make some difficult choices depending on what your priorities are. A QU AR IU S (J an 20 to Feb 18) You might still have some doubts about a career move that could involve a lot of travel. If so, continue to check things out until you feel secure about making a decision. P I SCES ( Feb 19 to March 20) Love rules, as Venus continues to exercise her cosmic influence on both single and attached Pisces. New developments might cause you to change your travel plans. BOR N T HI S W EE K: You often think of others before you consider your own needs. You enjoy helping people and would make a fine teacher or caregiver. 2011 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

That very thing will be happening coming up on Saturday, Oct. 8, at 5 p.m. in the Fairfield Village Clubhouse. The Social Activities Committee is looking forward to the spaghetti dinner event not only for the fun involved but also with hopes of beginning to fill the rather diminished coffers of the organization. The tickets for the dinner must be purchased no later than Oct. 5 so that the planning will allow for a bit of a profit margin. There are a number of upcoming events for fall and winter that are not revenue producing; therefore, some fiscal responsibility must be part of the planning. The really good cooks who are part of the SAC promise a great meal at a very good price only $6 per person which promises to please the individuals palate as well as the individuals purse. (How is that for another feeble attempt at alliteration?) Tickets may be purchased from the following ladies. Please be sure to contact one of them prior to the deadline of Oct. 5 so that the clubhouse can be full of lots of people who are ready to enjoy the Italian menu and the camaraderie of good friends. The menu for the evening is: Spaghetti and Meatballs, Salad, Texas Toast, Dessert, Coffee, Iced Tea and Lemonade. Wine will also be served. For tickets contact one of the following who will be happy to help you: Loretta Zang lorzangmyway@earthlink.net 352291-6644. Sandi Ford sandi945@aol.com 352237-7407.

U.S. high school students and their teachers are invited to participate in the Bill of Rights Institutes sixth annual Being an American Essay Contest. The largest contest of its kind in the country, the Being an American Essay Contest explores the Founding principles outlined in the Constitution. The contest is administered by the Bill of Rights Institute, a non-profit educational organization in the Washington, D.C. area devoted to educating young people about the Constitution and Founding principles. The 2011-2012 contest is sponsored by the History Channel. This contest is unique in that it gives students the opportunity to think about the important Founding principles communicated in our Constitution, said Dr. Jason Ross, Bill of Rights Institute Vice President of Education Programs. pThis context is vital to helping students see their Founding principles as a meaningful part of the American experiment of self-government. Specifically, students are asked to share their thoughts on the Constitution by answering the following question: How does the Constitution establish and maintain a culture of liberty? The top three student winners from each of the five geographical regions will be awarded cash prizes of $1,000 (First Place), $500 (Second Place), and $250 (Third Place). Teacher sponsors for each student winner will also receive a cash prize of $100. The contest not only honors and awards sponsoring teachers, but also equips them with free lesson plans and other supplemental materials that meet state and national academic standards so they can easily incorporate the essay contest into their classrooms. The Contest is really a tribute to the excellent work teachers do in the important task of civic education, said Ross. Over 80,000 students have participated in the essay contest since it began in 2006. We are pleased to support the Bill of Rights Institutes Being an American Essay Contest, said Dr. Libby O'Connell, SVP Corporate Outreach and Chief Historian, History Channel. "The contest encourages students to think critically and truly makes the past relevant in their lives today." Complete contest details can be found below. Further information, including submission criteria, lesson plans and background information on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Founders and the Founding principles are available at www.BillofRightsInstitute.org/Contest. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, September 28, 2011 11 2Wednesday, September 28, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 0009A8O 23rd Annual Central Florida Peanut Festival Calling all Calling all antique tractors! antique tractors!

Thanks to friend, Carole Frazzetto who contacted me about Ginny, I was able to learn about this milestone birthday. Ginny was born Sept. 16, 1921, in St. Louis, Missouri. On Saturday, Ginny, who was born Virginia Lucille Gigamaroa, celebrated her 90th birthday with 50 guests composed of family and friends. Ginnys parents were immigrants from Sicily but when it came time for her to fall in love, she found a tall Swedish man named Edward Snelson. They called him Skip and he and Ginny were married for 62 years. They had one son whom they named Edward Snelson, Jr. Ginny now lives with her son, Ed, and daughter-in-law, Karen. She is a grandmother to five and a great-grandmother to three boys. Ginny retired from Nabisco in St. Louis after working for them for 32 years. Ginny has many hobbies. She loves reading Danielle Steel books but her true passion is cards. She plays ladies poker every Wednesday with a Stone Creek group called the Poker Babes. Wednesday has become her favorite day of the week. On Monday evenings, she plays Pinochle and twice a month she plays Bunco. Her daughter-inlaw, Karen says, Her love of life and resilient nature combined with her love of food is what has kept Ginny young at heart. She no longer cooks but has taught Karen how to make Italian hamburgers. You add basil, oregano, garlic, parmesan cheese and ketchup to meat and make into patties. Yum, says Karen. Karen says Ginnys lasagna was also great. Her son, Edward, says his mother is wonderful and there is nothing she would not do for those she loves. She loves her life here at Stone Creek and feels so fortunate to be living such a great lifestyle. Many of us here will echo her sentiments. Happy 90th Birthday, Ginny! May you be blessed with many more. For some 1921 Trivia FDR was 39 when he contracted Polio in 1921. Chanel Number 5 perfume What were you doing 90 years ago? Patricia Gizzi was introduced; Irving Berlins song, All By Myself became popular and, of course, Virginia Gigamaroa was born! More shade The lan Spa outdoor pool has gotten more shade. Due to the requests of many residents, Linda Man, fitness director and Rick Morang worked on accomplishing this project. The 30 by 40 by 9 foot structure was installed by Creative Shade Solutions. There are presently 40 chairs under the structure. For those wanting more shade at the pool, it is now available. Thanks Linda and Rick for making this happen. VeteransDon Hunt from the veterans wants everyone to know that the closets are bare, bare, bare.

The drive will take place from Oct. 3 to 10 and he asks everyone to please be generous to help our fellow neighbors in Ocala in need of food. Ginny Snelson, center, receives love and attention from her son and daughter-inlaw, Edward and Karen Frazzetto.

On Sept. 29, staff will present the results of this review process at a community meeting. Citizens are invited to attend the presentation and provide feedback on the proposed plan updates. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. at the Growth Management Training Room, 2710 E. Silver Springs Blvd. For more information, contact Justin Ryan at Growth Management (Planning Division) at 352438-2600. In a unanimous vote during their Sept. 20 board meeting, Marion County commissioners adopted a new fee schedule for the countys Building Department, reducing fees for 83 different types of permits. The new rates will go into effect Oct. 1 and affect projects taking place in unincorporated Marion County, McIntosh and Reddick. The commission is enacting the change after a cost-analysis review to analyze the base amount of funds needed to operate the Building Department. The review results indicated permit fees could be decreased without affecting the departments operational budget. The departments budget is funded through revenues generated from permit fees. Homeowners and contractors will see reductions of more than $95 in some permit types through the new fee schedule. For example, permits for above-ground pools have decreased from $159 to $63, air conditioning unit change-outs have decreased from $87 to $73, and re-roofs for single family or duplex residences have decreased from $159 to $123 and to one fee of $246 for a three to six multi-family unit homes as opposed to $159 per unit. The Building Department adjusted the fees by calculating the costs associated with issuing each type of permit. At a time when the economy is at an all-time low, the County Commission and Marion County Building Department have made a tangible effort to assist citizens and business owners by lowering fees and implementing this new fee schedule, said Stan McClain, chairman of the County Commission. County cuts fee schedule Celebrating her 90th Ginny Snelson is shown recently as she celebrated her 90th birthday with this cake. She was born on Sept. 16, 1921, in St. Loui s, Missouri.
