The event is free an open to the public. There will be a grand prize drawing of a $500 Visa gift card. Visitors must visit 20 booths to qualify for the drawing. There will also be more than 50 door prizes. Expo sponsors include the South Marion Citizen, SunTrust, Emeritus, Visiting Angels and Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Florida.

There is plenty of free parking available outside the gates of On Top of the World. Business Expo is Thursday Scrumptious! Delicious! Succulent! Mouth-Watering! These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community last April. Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. Rotary is the worlds oldest service organization and it does great things both locally and internationally. The Ribathon is a major fundraiser that allows the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program as well as projects that provide clean water or fight polio in impoverished communities around the world. Oct. 15 is the date of the next baby back rib sale. Look for the tent in the parking lot at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and S.W. 99th Street starting at 10 a.m. A full rack of baby back ribs costs only $15 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30. The cost is $18 for racks that are not prepaid or that are picked up after 12:30. The Rotary Club will stay under the tent until all of the ribs have been sold. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. You can also buy tickets at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, M&S Bank, Alarion Bank, TD Bank and the law office of W.E. Bishop Jr. For more information, call Ray Sargent at 352-857-9099. The veterans who saved the world during World War II are making the 4th Honor Flight from Ocala to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. On Thursday, Oct. 27, the vets will leave Ocala Airport on a chartered plane for a full day of remembrance and reflection. We need to salute these vets for their accomplishments and give them a rousing send off, so be at the airport at 7 a.m. Then, that night, we want to give them a welcome home ceremony worthy of their status. Come out to the airport by 8 p.m. for this celebration. There will be an Honor Guard; food vendors, the bloodmobile, music and lots of fun. E-One will provide the fire trucks to give a water salute to the plane as it comes up to the terminal. The return of Mission #3 in June was huge and we would like to see this one even bigger. Come out on Oct. 27 to honor these veterans. Volunteers are also needed. Contact Ocala Honor Flight at 352-3519341. Honor Flight will be Oct. 27 Rotary Clubs rib sale is this Saturday Tarpon Springs tripResidents of Quail Meadow recently boarded a bus for a trip to Tarpon Springs for a day.

After meeting some of these people I can understand why they would want to abandon their body if only for a moment. My question is, why did they return? Whether this was a real experience or not, only their hairdresser knows for sure. I have made it one of the primary purposes of my life to stay in my body as long as I live. In fact, I have so developed my body so that there is ample room for my La-Z-Boy chair and me. I like to be comfortable. Truth compels me to say that I have never experienced an out-of-body experience. Every night when I go to sleep, I am unconscious until morning but I do not think that counts except when it comes to sheep, but who gives a baabaa about sheep. I have a hard time relating to these people with such esoteric experiences. I do not doubt them, I just do not relate to them. One thing that I can relate to is an out-of-cash experience. There, I said it. Confession is good for the soul. For many years, I was ashamed of having these kinds of experiences. I thought I was the only one in the whole world that ever experienced such trauma in their lives. I kept it a secret for many years. But all that has changed. I am ready to come out of the closet and confess that when it comes to cash, I am simply out of it. Its not that I have always had an over abundance of cash. Throughout the years, it has come in a little here and a little there but mostly nowhere. I can never remember a time when my life was flooded with so much cash I did not know what to do with it all. Being out of cash must not be as bad as it sounds. I suppose the terrible thing is how a person gets to that point in life. I wanted to write a book about my out-of-cash experience but I only got up to chapter 11. From everything I can gather, everybody seems to be out of cash. Even our government has come to such a perilous place as this. The government used to say, I feel your pain, and now they are really feeling our pain. The government is not broken as some people attest; the government is simply broke. Now they know how I really feel. Being out of cash does have some advantage. Last Tuesday, for example, was a long hard day and I was glad to get home. When I did get home, my wife greeted me at the door and said, Lets go out for supper tonight. I dont feel like cooking. I looked at her and said rather soberly, I sure would love to go out tonight for supper, but Im really out of cash. My wife gave me one of her trademark looks and said, Lets use your credit card. I would have argued but I was simply out of arguments. I must say that through the years she has been very generous with my credit card, which may be why I am really out of cash. Being out of cash is not really the worst thing that can happen to a person. About three weeks ago, I had to go out of town for a little trip and forgot to fill up my gas tank. I didnt even think about it. After all, with all the car payments and the monthly insurance payments you would think the car would Read the classifieds An out-of-cash experience James Snyder Please see SNYDER Page 7

The Fairfield Village Clubhouse was transformed into a warm and friendly place with the red-checked tablecloths brightening up the rainy night. For several months this summer, there was little activity in the Clubhouse as concerns about liability insurance curtailed most of the usual events. True, many of us felt that it was a shame that an issue of that nature could affect the summer good times that ordinarily are part of Fairfield Village life; however, it is a sign of the times that there are litigious issues that must be a first consideration. Thankfully, that is now not a concern. The traditional spaghetti and meatball dinner was accompanied by the customary garlic toast and tossed salad. Different dinner wines were available for those Lots of fun on Saturday night Please see FAIRFIELD Page 13 Read the classifieds

messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, October 12, 2011 11 6Wednesday, October 12, 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 On Point Pack up and move ... next door Seat belts and crashes I t was a deadly weekend in Marion County. First four people died in a crash in the overnight hours as a vehicle crammed with seven people headed from Tucker, Ga., to Miami rolled over in a single-car accident. Then another accident claimed the life of a man and injured a couple of small children. Of those 10 people, it isnt known if three in the second wreck were wearing seat belts. It is known that only one person in the four-fatality accident was wearing a belt, and that person was not facing lifethreatening injuries. At this writing on Monday morning, we still dont have all the details of an 11-car accident on the Interstate in Sundays storms, but at last count no one had died in that wreck. If all that doesnt send a message, Its hard to imagine what would. Weve never really been in favor of government telling us what to do in our own cars, especially when it affects no one but ourselves. However, when you see the stark statistics about injuries and fatalities in accidents, its hard to believe that there are still so many people who dont hook up their seat belts voluntarily. If youve never been to an accident scene where people have been thrown from a vehicle, well, we hope you dont get to see one. It isnt pretty. Many times, the person thrown from a vehicle, especially on a busy highway, isnt killed then, but is struck and killed by another vehicle that cant avoid them. So even if it werent the law, we would encourage people to wear their belts. As the old commercial used to say, the life you save may be your own. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Y our L etters Back to the sBy Jim Flynn S PECIALTOTHEM ESSENGER On a sunny fall afternoon in the 1960s we were at the business offices of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) at a gathering of suits for the purpose of finalizing a major building project. We had entered the building through a back door to avoid a gaggle of students and street-people exercising their first amendment right to demonstrate against the oppression of the day. While observing the protesters from an upper floor window, a member of the MIT staff pointed out the male and female leaders of the demonstration, students who had full scholarships and free dormitory rooms, in which they slept alternately. Motivating issues were many in the sixties and seventies civil rights, the Vietnam war, womens rights, participatory democracy, and the free speech movement. Youth were energized to challenge all authority and conventions. Those were heady days for college students, whose glandular systems were pumping overloads of adrenaline, hormones, and testosterone. Colleges were generally tolerant of student demonstrators, except occasions when they seized possession of administrative offices. On one occasion we were deprived of an invitation to drinks and a free lunch at the Harvard faculty sanctum, because students had taken possession of the facilities an unforgivable disregard of etiquette. We were reminded of the student uprisings of the sixties by a headline on a recent Associated Press (AP) article titled: Workers wonder what the protesters want. The purpose of the spreading Occupy Wall Street demonstrations was announced by a threatening sign which read Billionaires Your Time is Up! Sounds like Peter Finch in the movie Network: Im mad as hell and Im not going to take this any more. Unlike the student protests of the 60s, the Wall Street project has spread across the country without any identifiable organization or leadership. An early explanation of the protesters motivation was an effort to end corruption of government by corporation capitalism, a noble sounding goal. Lately, however, some Wall Street protesters have voiced solidarity with the protesters in Greece, a spoiled nation which appears certain to collapse, if it hasnt already. Greece is an example of the perils of social democracy an oversized popular government which made promises it cant keep. It would appear the Wall Street protesters intend to end capitalism in favor of a social democracy in which economic inequality would be discouraged, if not prohibited. Thats not what the United States was intended to be or has ever been. Now that students across the country are leaving classes to join the protests, Occupy Wall Street is likely to blossom into a left-wing counterweight to the right wing Tea Party more government and less Wall Street vs. more business and less government. Idealistic young people love causes, and their adrenaline is pumping again.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Youre moving from a relatively stable situation to one that appears to be laced with perplexity. Be patient. Youll eventually get answers to help clear up the confusion around you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A vexing situation tempts you to rush to set it all straight. But its best to let things sort themselves out so that you can get a better picture of the challenge youre facing. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Financial matters could create some confusion, especially with a torrent of advice pouring in from several sources. Resist acting on emotion and wait for the facts to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That goal youve set is still in sight and is still in reach. Stay with the course that youre on. Making too many shifts in direction now could create another set of problems. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) It might be time to confront a trouble-making associate and demand some answers. But be prepared for some surprises that could lead you to make a change in some long-standing plans. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Congratulations. Youre making great progress in sorting out all that confusion that kept you from making those important decisions. Youre on your way now. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A difficult experience begins to ease. Thats the good news. The not-so-good news is a possible complication that could prolong the problem awhile longer. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your self-confidence gets a much-needed big boost as you start to unsnarl that knotty financial problem. Expect some help from a surprising source. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Congratulations. Any lingering negative aftereffects from that not-sopleasant workplace situation are all but gone. Its time now to focus on the positive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your self-confidence grows stronger as you continue to take more control of your life. Arrange for some well-earned fun and relaxation with someone special. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) As usual, youve been concerned more about the needs of others than your own. You need to take time for yourself so that you can replenish all that spent energy. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Stronger planetary influences indicate a growing presence of people eager to help you navigate through the rough seas that might mark your career course. BORN THIS WEEK: You can balance emotion and logic, which gives you the ability to make choices that are more likely than not to prove successful. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure Please visit our Web site to answer our poll question A t one time or another, I realize all of you have probably moved. I doubt if there are too many of you who have spent a lifetime out here on the Corridor for one thing, much of this Corridor wasnt here when a lot of us were born. You all know what a pain moving can be. Theres figuring out what to take, what to sell, what to give away, what to keep and what to pack. Most of the time, when youre moving, you dont have weekly deadlines to worry about. You sit there and go through stuff and make sure youre ready when the appointed time comes. But what if you had to move your business, and keep operating as you went along. That presents some challenges. And its happening to us. The office of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messengeris moving, come Oct. 28. Its not a move that will stress you out if youre trying to find us. Were only moving next door, one office to the east, from Suite 104 to Suite 103. But in some ways that doesnt matter. We still have to keep putting out newspapers while were getting ready, and then if all goes well on the 28th, well close the office, have our phone and computer lines and electric all connected, and be ready to go to work Monday (or over the weekend). However, all of our stuff has to be moved. That involves files, desks, chairs, cabinets, computers, fax, printers and the lot. One big thing were requesting is going to be early deadlines for news stories. If you want something in the West Marion Messenger on Nov. 2, it must be here on Thursday, Oct. 27, just in case we have to work on it early. That includes columns, stories, photos, etc. If you want something in the South Marion Citizen of Nov. 4, were asking that you e-mail it no later than Saturday, Oct. 29. And its important that items be e-mailed. You know what goes on when you move, so bringing us something that has to be kept physically, instead of cyberspace, is risky that weekend. Of course, we have to keep covering the news that weekend, which happens to feature a bunch of Halloween events. Well try not to delay pictures from those happenings, but well have to see how things go. Well be running little reminders in the papers this week and the next two weeks, but please keep those deadlines in mind and please be patient with us. Hopefully, well get back to normal as soon as possible. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com or at 352-854-3986. Jim Clark Editor

My car once told me it was the responsibility of the owner. I am not saying that my car is contrary but I was about seven miles out of town when I ran out of gas. It does not matter how much cash you have on hand, if you run out of gas without a gas station nearby it just does not matter. The mens store where I usually buy my clothing was running a sale on shirts, the kind I usually wear. I had some errands to run and by the time I got to the mens store, they had sold the last shirt. Im sorry, the salesperson said, but youre out of luck. I am not quite sure which is worse, being out of cash or being out of luck. The truth of the matter is, no matter how much cash you have on hand if there are no more shirts left, you are simply out of luck. A long time ago, I faced the simple truth that money cannot buy everything. I might be able to rent a little bit of happiness but it does not last forever. I have learned that the most important thing in life is to be balanced. Too much of anything, even a good thing, can really be harmful. This must be what Solomon had in mind when he wrote, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain (Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV). The problem today is not that we do not have enough; we simply are not thankful enough for what we have. The Rev. James L.

Thirty-one friends and neighbors boarded the bus at the clubhouse and headed for a day of shopping and sightseeing in the Greek community of Tarpon Springs. The first stop for everyone was Carols Boutiki-Hut. Here we were greeted by the shopkeepers who welcomed us with wine, cheese, crackers, and fruit and cookies. Who could ask for a better beginning to a day? From here, everyone was free to spend the day shopping, eating, and sightseeing. For most, it was shopping, but a few did take the island adventure tour on the Sun Line Cruises. Those who took this trip came home with some beautiful shells they collected on the island. Many from the group chose to have lunch at Hellas Restaurant and Bakery. This is an authentic Greek restaurant. The food was mouth-watering especially the desserts. Many purchased desserts to take home. The Quail Meadow Tarpon Springs trip fantastic Carolyn Slocumb trip was certainly not boring! We had our own live entertainment Marion Gartman provided accordion music, which we all enjoyed. We even did a sing-along on the trip back to Ocala. For many, this was a first-time trip to Tarpon Springs, but Im sure it wont be their last. Tarpon Springs got its name from Mary Ormond, the daughter of the first settler, A.W. Ormond from South Carolina. The Ormonds built a cabin near Spring Bayou in 1876. Mary suggested the settlement be named Tarpon Springs after the giant Tarpon that jumped and splashed in the bayou. Later, the Greeks came into the area and began the large sponge industry. The sponge docks are always a very interesting spot to visit and watch the boats as they return with the sponges. While we all enjoy our lovely neighborhood, lets not forget there are many in Marion County who are hungry and in need. The Marion County Board of Commissioners has organized a food drive to support pantries in the county. Officials say increased need has put a strain on community food pantries: Brothers Keeper, Interfaith Emergency Services and Salvation Army. We have a collection box in our clubhouse for items donated to Interfaith Services. Suggested items for donations are: dry goods/foods (rice, pasta, pasta sauce, cereal, crackers, peanut butter and jelly), canned meats, vegetables and fruits, baby items (formula, food, diapers, etc.), and toiletries (soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste and toilet paper). With the cooler nights and windy days, the aerobics classes have moved inside. Check the Reporter for class times.

My car once told me it was the responsibility of the owner. I am not saying that my car is contrary but I was about seven miles out of town when I ran out of gas. It does not matter how much cash you have on hand, if you run out of gas without a gas station nearby it just does not matter. The mens store where I usually buy my clothing was running a sale on shirts, the kind I usually wear. I had some errands to run and by the time I got to the mens store, they had sold the last shirt. Im sorry, the salesperson said, but youre out of luck. I am not quite sure which is worse, being out of cash or being out of luck. The truth of the matter is, no matter how much cash you have on hand if there are no more shirts left, you are simply out of luck. A long time ago, I faced the simple truth that money cannot buy everything. I might be able to rent a little bit of happiness but it does not last forever. I have learned that the most important thing in life is to be balanced. Too much of anything, even a good thing, can really be harmful. This must be what Solomon had in mind when he wrote, Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain (Proverbs 30:8-9 KJV).

State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point Pack up and move ... next door Seat belts and crashes I t was a deadly weekend in Marion County. First four people died in a crash in the overnight hours as a vehicle crammed with seven people headed from Tucker, Ga., to Miami rolled over in a single-car accident. Then another accident claimed the life of a man and injured a couple of small children. Of those 10 people, it isnt known if three in the second wreck were wearing seat belts. It is known that only one person in the four-fatality accident was wearing a belt, and that person was not facing lifethreatening injuries. At this writing on Monday morning, we still dont have all the details of an 11-car accident on the Interstate in Sundays storms, but at last count no one had died in that wreck. If all that doesnt send a message, Its hard to imagine what would. Weve never really been in favor of government telling us what to do in our own cars, especially when it affects no one but ourselves. However, when you see the stark statistics about injuries and fatalities in accidents, its hard to believe that there are still so many people who dont hook up their seat belts voluntarily. If youve never been to an accident scene where people have been thrown from a vehicle, well, we hope you dont get to see one. It isnt pretty. Many times, the person thrown from a vehicle, especially on a busy highway, isnt killed then, but is struck and killed by another vehicle that cant avoid them. So even if it werent the law, we would encourage people to wear their belts. As the old commercial used to say, the life you save may be your own. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Y our L etters Back to the sBy Jim Flynn S PECIALTOTHEM ESSENGER On a sunny fall afternoon in the 1960s we were at the business offices of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) at a gathering of suits for the purpose of finalizing a major building project. We had entered the building through a back door to avoid a gaggle of students and street-people exercising their first amendment right to demonstrate against the oppression of the day. While observing the protesters from an upper floor window, a member of the MIT staff pointed out the male and female leaders of the demonstration, students who had full scholarships and free dormitory rooms, in which they slept alternately. Motivating issues were many in the sixties and seventies civil rights, the Vietnam war, womens rights, participatory democracy, and the free speech movement. Youth were energized to challenge all authority and conventions. Those were heady days for college students, whose glandular systems were pumping overloads of adrenaline, hormones, and testosterone. Colleges were generally tolerant of student demonstrators, except occasions when they seized possession of administrative offices. On one occasion we were deprived of an invitation to drinks and a free lunch at the Harvard faculty sanctum, because students had taken possession of the facilities an unforgivable disregard of etiquette. We were reminded of the student uprisings of the sixties by a headline on a recent Associated Press (AP) article titled: Workers wonder what the protesters want. The purpose of the spreading Occupy Wall Street demonstrations was announced by a threatening sign which read Billionaires Your Time is Up! Sounds like Peter Finch in the movie Network: Im mad as hell and Im not going to take this any more. Unlike the student protests of the 60s, the Wall Street project has spread across the country without any identifiable organization or leadership. An early explanation of the protesters motivation was an effort to end corruption of government by corporation capitalism, a noble sounding goal. Lately, however, some Wall Street protesters have voiced solidarity with the protesters in Greece, a spoiled nation which appears certain to collapse, if it hasnt already. Greece is an example of the perils of social democracy an oversized popular government which made promises it cant keep. It would appear the Wall Street protesters intend to end capitalism in favor of a social democracy in which economic inequality would be discouraged, if not prohibited. Thats not what the United States was intended to be or has ever been. Now that students across the country are leaving classes to join the protests, Occupy Wall Street is likely to blossom into a left-wing counterweight to the right wing Tea Party more government and less Wall Street vs. more business and less government. Idealistic young people love causes, and their adrenaline is pumping again.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Youre moving from a relatively stable situation to one that appears to be laced with perplexity. Be patient. Youll eventually get answers to help clear up the confusion around you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A vexing situation tempts you to rush to set it all straight. But its best to let things sort themselves out so that you can get a better picture of the challenge youre facing. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Financial matters could create some confusion, especially with a torrent of advice pouring in from several sources. Resist acting on emotion and wait for the facts to emerge. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) That goal youve set is still in sight and is still in reach. Stay with the course that youre on. Making too many shifts in direction now could create another set of problems. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) It might be time to confront a trouble-making associate and demand some answers. But be prepared for some surprises that could lead you to make a change in some long-standing plans. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Congratulations. Youre making great progress in sorting out all that confusion that kept you from making those important decisions. Youre on your way now. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A difficult experience begins to ease. Thats the good news. The not-so-good news is a possible complication that could prolong the problem awhile longer. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your self-confidence gets a much-needed big boost as you start to unsnarl that knotty financial problem. Expect some help from a surprising source. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Congratulations. Any lingering negative aftereffects from that not-sopleasant workplace situation are all but gone. Its time now to focus on the positive. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your self-confidence grows stronger as you continue to take more control of your life. Arrange for some well-earned fun and relaxation with someone special. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) As usual, youve been concerned more about the needs of others than your own. You need to take time for yourself so that you can replenish all that spent energy. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Stronger planetary influences indicate a growing presence of people eager to help you navigate through the rough seas that might mark your career course. BORN THIS WEEK: You can balance emotion and logic, which gives you the ability to make choices that are more likely than not to prove successful. 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure Please visit our Web site to answer our poll question A t one time or another, I realize all of you have probably moved. I doubt if there are too many of you who have spent a lifetime out here on the Corridor for one thing, much of this Corridor wasnt here when a lot of us were born. You all know what a pain moving can be. Theres figuring out what to take, what to sell, what to give away, what to keep and what to pack. Most of the time, when youre moving, you dont have weekly deadlines to worry about. You sit there and go through stuff and make sure youre ready when the appointed time comes. But what if you had to move your business, and keep operating as you went along. That presents some challenges. And its happening to us. The office of the South Marion Citizen and West Marion Messengeris moving, come Oct. 28. Its not a move that will stress you out if youre trying to find us. Were only moving next door, one office to the east, from Suite 104 to Suite 103. But in some ways that doesnt matter. We still have to keep putting out newspapers while were getting ready, and then if all goes well on the 28th, well close the office, have our phone and computer lines and electric all connected, and be ready to go to work Monday (or over the weekend). However, all of our stuff has to be moved. That involves files, desks, chairs, cabinets, computers, fax, printers and the lot. One big thing were requesting is going to be early deadlines for news stories. If you want something in the West Marion Messenger on Nov. 2, it must be here on Thursday, Oct. 27, just in case we have to work on it early. That includes columns, stories, photos, etc. If you want something in the South Marion Citizen of Nov. 4, were asking that you e-mail it no later than Saturday, Oct. 29. And its important that items be e-mailed. You know what goes on when you move, so bringing us something that has to be kept physically, instead of cyberspace, is risky that weekend. Of course, we have to keep covering the news that weekend, which happens to feature a bunch of Halloween events. Well try not to delay pictures from those happenings, but well have to see how things go. Well be running little reminders in the papers this week and the next two weeks, but please keep those deadlines in mind and please be patient with us. Hopefully, well get back to normal as soon as possible. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com or at 352-854-3986. Jim Clark Editor

The Fairfield Village Clubhouse was transformed into a warm and friendly place with the red-checked tablecloths brightening up the rainy night. For several months this summer, there was little activity in the Clubhouse as concerns about liability insurance curtailed most of the usual events. True, many of us felt that it was a shame that an issue of that nature could affect the summer good times that ordinarily are part of Fairfield Village life; however, it is a sign of the times that there are litigious issues that must be a first consideration. Thankfully, that is now not a concern. The traditional spaghetti and meatball dinner was accompanied by the customary garlic toast and tossed salad. Different dinner wines were available for those Lots of fun on Saturday night Please see FAIRFIELD Page 13 Read the classifieds

After meeting some of these people I can understand why they would want to abandon their body if only for a moment. My question is, why did they return? Whether this was a real experience or not, only their hairdresser knows for sure. I have made it one of the primary purposes of my life to stay in my body as long as I live. In fact, I have so developed my body so that there is ample room for my La-Z-Boy chair and me. I like to be comfortable. Truth compels me to say that I have never experienced an out-of-body experience. Every night when I go to sleep, I am unconscious until morning but I do not think that counts except when it comes to sheep, but who gives a baabaa about sheep. I have a hard time relating to these people with such esoteric experiences. I do not doubt them, I just do not relate to them. One thing that I can relate to is an out-of-cash experience. There, I said it. Confession is good for the soul. For many years, I was ashamed of having these kinds of experiences. I thought I was the only one in the whole world that ever experienced such trauma in their lives. I kept it a secret for many years. But all that has changed. I am ready to come out of the closet and confess that when it comes to cash, I am simply out of it. Its not that I have always had an over abundance of cash. Throughout the years, it has come in a little here and a little there but mostly nowhere. I can never remember a time when my life was flooded with so much cash I did not know what to do with it all. Being out of cash must not be as bad as it sounds. I suppose the terrible thing is how a person gets to that point in life. I wanted to write a book about my out-of-cash experience but I only got up to chapter 11. From everything I can gather, everybody seems to be out of cash. Even our government has come to such a perilous place as this. The government used to say, I feel your pain, and now they are really feeling our pain. The government is not broken as some people attest; the government is simply broke. Now they know how I really feel. Being out of cash does have some advantage. Last Tuesday, for example, was a long hard day and I was glad to get home. When I did get home, my wife greeted me at the door and said, Lets go out for supper tonight. I dont feel like cooking. I looked at her and said rather soberly, I sure would love to go out tonight for supper, but Im really out of cash. My wife gave me one of her trademark looks and said, Lets use your credit card. I would have argued but I was simply out of arguments. I must say that through the years she has been very generous with my credit card, which may be why I am really out of cash. Being out of cash is not really the worst thing that can happen to a person. About three weeks ago, I had to go out of town for a little trip and forgot to fill up my gas tank. I didnt even think about it. After all, with all the car payments and the monthly insurance payments you would think the car would Read the classifieds An out-of-cash experience James Snyder Please see SNYDER Page 7

These were some of the words that were used to describe the barbecued baby rack ribs that the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest offered to the community last April. Before cooking, the ribs undergo a dry rub, imparting a flavor that can only be described as heavenly. Rotary President Herb Silverman says that the ingredients of the savory dry rub are a secret thats as closely guarded as the Coca Cola recipe. Youll need to eat the Rotarys baby back ribs to experience the great taste. Rotary is the worlds oldest service organization and it does great things both locally and internationally. The Ribathon is a major fundraiser that allows the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest to support the College of Central Florida Nursing Scholarship Program as well as projects that provide clean water or fight polio in impoverished communities around the world. Oct. 15 is the date of the next baby back rib sale. Look for the tent in the parking lot at the Bank of the Ozarks on State Road 200 and S.W. 99th Street starting at 10 a.m. A full rack of baby back ribs costs only $15 if you prepay and pick up your order before 12:30. The cost is $18 for racks that are not prepaid or that are picked up after 12:30. The Rotary Club will stay under the tent until all of the ribs have been sold. Pre-paid tickets are being sold by members of the Rotary Club of Ocala Southwest. You can also buy tickets at several locations along State Route 200 including the Bank of the Ozarks, M&S Bank, Alarion Bank, TD Bank and the law office of W.E. Bishop Jr. For more information, call Ray Sargent at 352-857-9099. The veterans who saved the world during World War II are making the 4th Honor Flight from Ocala to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery. On Thursday, Oct. 27, the vets will leave Ocala Airport on a chartered plane for a full day of remembrance and reflection. We need to salute these vets for their accomplishments and give them a rousing send off, so be at the airport at 7 a.m. Then, that night, we want to give them a welcome home ceremony worthy of their status. Come out to the airport by 8 p.m. for this celebration. There will be an Honor Guard; food vendors, the bloodmobile, music and lots of fun. E-One will provide the fire trucks to give a water salute to the plane as it comes up to the terminal. The return of Mission #3 in June was huge and we would like to see this one even bigger. Come out on Oct. 27 to honor these veterans. Volunteers are also needed. Contact Ocala Honor Flight at 352-3519341.
