INDEX Fairfield Village..2 Stone Creek........4 Quail Meadow......7 Puzzles................9 VOLUME 4, NUMBER 30 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER19, 2011 Happenings Page 3 Food-Recipe Page 8 0009K0T Occupy OcalaThe national protests being dubbed as Occupy Wall Street spread to downtown Ocala on Saturday as a group of a couple hundred people gathered with signs and stood on the sidewalk, asking passing drivers of vehicles who backed them to honk. In the top photo, some of the people went on a short walk around the block north and west of the Downtown Square. They couldnt march around the Square because of the weekly Saturday market that was in operation. At the right, Stacey Barrineau displays her Hula Hoop skills while holding up a sign saying revolution. Note the highlighting of the word love which is backwards in the revolution word. Only one police officer could be seen in the area of the peaceful demonstration. Photos by Jim Clark On Saturday, Oct. 29, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, along with the Ocala and Police Department and in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), will participate in the National Pill Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Main Operations Center, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. Marion County Sheriff's Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200, Ocala.. Marion County Sheriff's Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Avenue, Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give people in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Residents can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the dropoff site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Keep your home and neighborhood safe by only using medications you have a prescription for, and using them responsibly. Medication take back day set for Oct. 29 Flu shotsIts flu shot season all over the area, and one community that was visited recently was Quail Meadow. Joan Christopher, right, is shown getting her flu shot from a representative of VaxCare, who inoculated 41 people that day. Local food pantries have seen requests for grocery assistance increase by up to 44 percent since this summer. The spike has coincided with a dwindling supply of donations, leaving area pantries in a dire spot and vulnerable to not being able to assist area residents. On Oct. 4, 2011, the Marion County Board of County Commissioners launched a 21-day food drive called Bring the Harvest Home to help re-stock these depleted food pantries and provide aid for Marion Countys most needy residents. The pantries are in most urgent need of: Dry goods/foods that complement dry goods (rice, pasta, pasta sauce, cereal, crackers, peanut butter and jelly). Canned meats (corned beef, corned beef hash, ham and tuna). Canned vegetables and fruit. Baby items (ranging from powdered formula and jarred food to diapers and lotion). Toiletries, such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste and toilet paper are also always needed. If you would prefer to donate by cash or check, please contact one of the main food pantries directly: Brothers Keeper (352-622-3846). Interfaith (352-629-8868). Salvation Army (352-732-8326). Early deadline for Nov. 2All material for the Nov. 2 West Marion Messenger must be submitted by e-mail on or before Thursday, Oct. 27. The office of the Messenger and the South Marion Citizen will be closed on Friday, Oct. 28, and not reopen until Monday, Oct. 31. The office is relocating to Suite 103 in the same shopping center, Kingsland Plaza, 8810 S.W. State Road 200. Help Bring the Harvest Home

Since I am going to be out of town in Chicago and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, for the next week, I cruised around our neighborhood looking for fall or Halloween dcor. I was amazed or surprised to find that I must be looking too early for most of our neighbors. Therefore, I am encouraging our more whimsical neighbors to bring out the beautiful fall decorations or the ghoulish Halloween fun things before I get back so that I can feature their homes in our Priscilla Geissal Looking for Halloween decorations column. Meanwhile, I have photos of one home that is ready for the ghosts and the goblins of the upcoming Halloween time. With so many children in our family, we have lots of Halloween decorations ourselves, but I am tardy in that I do not have mine out yet either. Since we will be visiting where we have lots of little kids who love the dress-up and decorations, we might have some new ideas to bring back south with us. I will feature more homes with special interesting exteriors in upcoming weeks. In the meantime, I hope that everyone is enjoying the beginning of the milder season in Florida. I am an odd ball because I love the summer time, and I do not mind the heat and humidity that others dislike. All the charm of Floridas climate appeals to me except for the hurricanes which I pray we have avoided this year. Maybe there will be no violent storms to tear down the decorations that I expect to find soon in Fairfield Village a lively place filled with lovely people. Above, the entire house; At left, the ghoul.

R etirement allows us to pursue our hobbies or to develop ones that we did not have the time to pursue while working. Larry Callahan, Sebastian resident, is such person. Larry officiates all over the United States at track and field events. Larry began running in high school and for a year in college. He ran the 440, 200 and 800 meter. He also ran cross country and then he did not run. He did not run for 25 years and then began running again competitively from 1987 to 2000. It was his son David who challenged him to run again. Larry said, I got the bug. He joined a track club where he met the meet director for the club and when he could no longer run because of his knees, he started officiating. His training began with clinics and he worked summer youth meets with established officials. USA Track and Field requires recertification every four years after the Olympics. There are three levels of certification association, national and masters. To become Masters, one must pass rules review, have good evaluations, experience at major meets and also give clinics at both local and nationally. Larry began officiating at high school games but no longer does high school. He was at the 2008 US Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon. He was the crew chief at the 2009 US Outdoor National Championship. He has done NCAA Division 1 and Division 3 championships. He recently did the USATF Junior Olympics in Kansas where the temperature reached 109. He has done the World Masters with various age groups. He had athletes as old as 97. His longest travel was to Eugene, Oregon and he has traveled to fifteen plus states to officiate. Larry said he had a 97 year old male triple jumper this year at the World Masters. He had an 85 year old do 10,000m runner at World Masters in Buffalo in 1995. Yes, 10,000 is correct. At the end of the race, he took off his clothes and sat on the track to rest because he was too hot. Larry told how one jumper wanted to escort him to his car as many at the meet did messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, October 19, 2011 9 4Wednesday, October 19, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger The West Marion Messenger is a free community newspaper covering news of communities west of Ocala including Fore Ranch, Stone Creek, Fairfield Village, Ocala Palms, Timberwood, Falls of Ocala, Quail Meadow, Foxwood Farms and Golden Hills.

Some issues are relatively benign. But some are so serious that they have repercussions far beyond a specific household. You might wonder what individual child-rearing decision can affect entire communities? Its the decision some parents have been making to reject or delay the childhood vaccinations that are recommended by our countrys preeminent medical and physician associations and agencies. The Internet is rife with incendiary anecdotes about children experiencing negative reactions after vaccination and with righteous holding-forth from parents apparently convinced that vaccinations promote disease rather than control it. A particularly insidious belief is about a link between vaccines and autism an allegation thats been traced to a single fraudulent report and disproved soundly in the scientific literature. In addition, some new parents dismiss the severity of vaccine-preventable diseases. They havent seen these diseases in their lifetimes primarily because of our universal vaccination program, which seems now to be a victim of its own success. They should be asking their parents and grandparents what it was like just 50 or 60 years ago, when polio was a terrifyingly real threat and whooping cough or measles could drive neighborhoods and schools to sickbeds and hospitals. These parents dont seem to understand the chain of infection or the true risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, focusing instead on sensationalized and overblown exhortations about perceived threats of vaccines. The parents act on their own research instead of recommendations from medical authorities based on decades of scientific studies. The facts are simple: An unvaccinated child is at greater risk of catching one of these potentially life-threatening diseases, and also can transmit it throughout the community. There already are reports of pediatricians who will not allow unvaccinated children into their offices. As the CDC says, its like a boat with a small leak: When we started bailing, the boat was filled with water. But we have been bailing fast and hard, and now it is almost dry. We could say, Good.

The last time I checked he is black, not white. Our dislike of President Obama has never had anything to do with his race, it has to do with his policies. If liberals would examine the direction the Democratic Party is going, they would understand why there is no longer an official Socialist Party nominee. The man who ran on multiple occasions as the Socialist candidate stated that we no longer needed that to occur. Reason given: The Democratic Party has taken up their agenda and plans, moving so far to the left that it is no longer the same party many voted for in the past. He obviously is now a Democrat. The writer of Sounds Good, No Facts, should look at his Democratic Party, how can their moving toward the Socialist Party or worse be acceptable? Is this the America you want for your children? No Thanks! If you take an honest look at the politics of the day, it is liberal vs. conservative, bigger government vs. smaller government, and to highlight the most important difference: What party fights against having God removed from our culture? Yes, its time to look at the facts, no more class warfare which was all the so called Jobs bill was about, to instill class warfare, divide and conquer. I was also taught that you can judge people by the company they keep. Take a serious look at both Democrats and Republicans to see where you choose to be. God Bless America!

Also, we have some very important anniversaries in October: Bob and Lois Bonnell celebrated 61 years of marriage on the second and Charlie and Becky Cram celebrate 58 years on the 24th. On a sad note, Paul and Martha Teeter would have celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary on the 5th of this month, but Paul passed away on September 28th. We send our condolences to Martha and the family. To recognize the end of summertime water aerobics, the Wonderful Water Womens group had breakfast at Stone Creek last week. Marion Gartman was presented a gift of appreciation for giving her time, energy, and encouragement to the group during the summer. Marion reminded everyone that this was the year we evolved as women and each woman was presented with a miniature trophy. Marion will be conducting indoor exercise classes each Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings at the clubhouse. VaxCare did an outstanding job giving us flu and pneumonia shots. The response was smaller than previous years, but 41 brave people came and rolled up their sleeves. It is so convenient to just go to the clubhouse for this service. It is especially helpful to those in wheelchairs, or using walkers; they can drive up to the door and go inside without climbing stairs, etc. October is called Breast Cancer Awareness month. Probably most of you know of someone (family member, friend, or yourself) who has been diagnosed with this condition. During this month we see many pink signs reminding us of the importance of early detection. Ladies, please get Important anniversaries in October at Quail Meadow your mammograms and do self-exams. As a survivor (21 years), I can attest to the importance of these procedures. The Craft Fair and Bake Sale will be here in just a few weeks (Nov. 12). We need baked goods donated for the sale. Please call Carol Sjogren if you plan to donate cookies, cakes, pies, etc. for the sale. This is the last reminder to get your tickets for the Oktoberfest Dinner and Auction. Theresa Yoders and Lil Carie have the tickets ($5 donation). Also, bring your wrapped gift for the auction. Carolyn Slocumb Wonderful Water Women at their breakfast Please use our e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Jim Clark Editor T here are a lot of big games in the National Football League each week. Playoff spots are on the line as teams jockey for position in the standings. The Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins game is not one of those that the entire football nation will be watching with anxiety. That, however, doesnt apply to the state of Florida. The Denver-Miami game will probably be the most popular in the state next weekend, especially since the Florida Gators have a week off to lick their SEC wounds. The coaching staff at Denver has chosen this week to make Tim Tebow the teams starting quarterback. If you dont know who Tim Tebow is, well, you probably dont watch much football. Tebow graduated from the University of Florida with two national championships and a Heisman Trophy. He was drafted by the Broncos amid all the skepticism that his throwing motion, among other things, was not NFL caliber. But Denvers previous quarterback, Kyle Orton, was doing so poorly that the job, for now at least, belongs to Tebow. Not only is Tebow starting for the opponent Sunday in Miami, Floridas national champions are being honored. So you know there are going to be Gator fans aplenty in the stadium. With the way the Dolphins have played this year, that might mean a crowd rooting for Denver, more specifically Tebow, this weekend. And another thing making this game more interesting is that the Dolphins are having a major problem ... at the quarterback position. Back when the 2010 draft was held, there were a lot of people in Florida hoping that either Jacksonville or Miami woul draft him (Tampa was pretty well set at the QB spot). That didnt happen, so getting a chance to see Tebow, in his home state, get a big start is a major plus. Im not a huge Gator fan, although some of it has to rub off on you when youve been force-fed Gator news for more than 40 years. I did enjoy watching Tebow, going all the way back to Nease High School in St. Johns County. He seemed like a charismatic leader, and a genuine good guy, and for that reason I was hoping he would make it big in the pros. It hasnt happened yet, but maybe this weekends game will be the first major step for the Florida grad. So come this weekend, Ill be settled down at home watching either the whole game itself or, if our exciting Orlando TV station decides to give us something else, the major highlights on NFL Red Zone. The way Jacksonville and Miami are playing, this could be the biggest game of the year for fans of those two teams (the Bucs of Tampa are in first place).Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

The writer of Sounds Good, No Facts, should look at his Democratic Party, how can their moving toward the Socialist Party or worse be acceptable? Is this the America you want for your children? No Thanks! If you take an honest look at the politics of the day, it is liberal vs. conservative, bigger government vs. smaller government, and to highlight the most important difference: What party fights against having God removed from our culture? Yes, its time to look at the facts, no more class warfare which was all the so called Jobs bill was about, to instill class warfare, divide and conquer. I was also taught that you can judge people by the company they keep. Take a serious look at both Democrats and Republicans to see where you choose to be. God Bless America! Wayne Rackley Ocala Complaints Today it is possible to find information about members of Congress and the Senate so you can make a really informed decision about whom you want to vote for. Use your computer, a friends computer, the library computer. You type in the name of the person and add complaints. It also works for products advertised on TV. The ad convinced me to buy. We will take off one payment so you only have to pay Complaints convinced me not to buy. The most important use of complaints is for politicians who speak Congressege instead of English. Darn it. I gave it away. Hurry before they pass a law making it illegal.

Also, we have some very important anniversaries in October: Bob and Lois Bonnell celebrated 61 years of marriage on the second and Charlie and Becky Cram celebrate 58 years on the 24th. On a sad note, Paul and Martha Teeter would have celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary on the 5th of this month, but Paul passed away on September 28th. We send our condolences to Martha and the family. To recognize the end of summertime water aerobics, the Wonderful Water Womens group had breakfast at Stone Creek last week. Marion Gartman was presented a gift of appreciation for giving her time, energy, and encouragement to the group during the summer. Marion reminded everyone that this was the year we evolved as women and each woman was presented with a miniature trophy. Marion will be conducting indoor exercise classes each Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings at the clubhouse. VaxCare did an outstanding job giving us flu and pneumonia shots. The response was smaller than previous years, but 41 brave people came and rolled up their sleeves. It is so convenient to just go to the clubhouse for this service. It is especially helpful to those in wheelchairs, or using walkers; they can drive up to the door and go inside without climbing stairs, etc. October is called Breast Cancer Awareness month. Probably most of you know of someone (family member, friend, or yourself) who has been diagnosed with this condition. During this month we see many pink signs reminding us of the importance of early detection. Ladies, please get Important anniversaries in October at Quail Meadow your mammograms and do self-exams. As a survivor (21 years), I can attest to the importance of these procedures. The Craft Fair and Bake Sale will be here in just a few weeks (Nov. 12). We need baked goods donated for the sale. Please call Carol Sjogren if you plan to donate cookies, cakes, pies, etc. for the sale. This is the last reminder to get your tickets for the Oktoberfest Dinner and Auction. Theresa Yoders and Lil Carie have the tickets ($5 donation). Also, bring your wrapped gift for the auction. Carolyn Slocumb Wonderful Water Women at their breakfast Please use our e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Jim Clark Editor T here are a lot of big games in the National Football League each week. Playoff spots are on the line as teams jockey for position in the standings. The Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins game is not one of those that the entire football nation will be watching with anxiety. That, however, doesnt apply to the state of Florida. The Denver-Miami game will probably be the most popular in the state next weekend, especially since the Florida Gators have a week off to lick their SEC wounds. The coaching staff at Denver has chosen this week to make Tim Tebow the teams starting quarterback. If you dont know who Tim Tebow is, well, you probably dont watch much football. Tebow graduated from the University of Florida with two national championships and a Heisman Trophy. He was drafted by the Broncos amid all the skepticism that his throwing motion, among other things, was not NFL caliber. But Denvers previous quarterback, Kyle Orton, was doing so poorly that the job, for now at least, belongs to Tebow. Not only is Tebow starting for the opponent Sunday in Miami, Floridas national champions are being honored. So you know there are going to be Gator fans aplenty in the stadium. With the way the Dolphins have played this year, that might mean a crowd rooting for Denver, more specifically Tebow, this weekend. And another thing making this game more interesting is that the Dolphins are having a major problem ... at the quarterback position. Back when the 2010 draft was held, there were a lot of people in Florida hoping that either Jacksonville or Miami woul draft him (Tampa was pretty well set at the QB spot). That didnt happen, so getting a chance to see Tebow, in his home state, get a big start is a major plus. Im not a huge Gator fan, although some of it has to rub off on you when youve been force-fed Gator news for more than 40 years. I did enjoy watching Tebow, going all the way back to Nease High School in St. Johns County. He seemed like a charismatic leader, and a genuine good guy, and for that reason I was hoping he would make it big in the pros. It hasnt happened yet, but maybe this weekends game will be the first major step for the Florida grad. So come this weekend, Ill be settled down at home watching either the whole game itself or, if our exciting Orlando TV station decides to give us something else, the major highlights on NFL Red Zone. The way Jacksonville and Miami are playing, this could be the biggest game of the year for fans of those two teams (the Bucs of Tampa are in first place).Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

R etirement allows us to pursue our hobbies or to develop ones that we did not have the time to pursue while working. Larry Callahan, Sebastian resident, is such person. Larry officiates all over the United States at track and field events. Larry began running in high school and for a year in college. He ran the 440, 200 and 800 meter. He also ran cross country and then he did not run. He did not run for 25 years and then began running again competitively from 1987 to 2000. It was his son David who challenged him to run again. Larry said, I got the bug. He joined a track club where he met the meet director for the club and when he could no longer run because of his knees, he started officiating. His training began with clinics and he worked summer youth meets with established officials. USA Track and Field requires recertification every four years after the Olympics. There are three levels of certification association, national and masters. To become Masters, one must pass rules review, have good evaluations, experience at major meets and also give clinics at both local and nationally. Larry began officiating at high school games but no longer does high school. He was at the 2008 US Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon. He was the crew chief at the 2009 US Outdoor National Championship. He has done NCAA Division 1 and Division 3 championships. He recently did the USATF Junior Olympics in Kansas where the temperature reached 109. He has done the World Masters with various age groups. He had athletes as old as 97. His longest travel was to Eugene, Oregon and he has traveled to fifteen plus states to officiate. Larry said he had a 97 year old male triple jumper this year at the World Masters. He had an 85 year old do 10,000m runner at World Masters in Buffalo in 1995. Yes, 10,000 is correct. At the end of the race, he took off his clothes and sat on the track to rest because he was too hot. Larry told how one jumper wanted to escort him to his car as many at the meet did messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, October 19, 2011 9 4Wednesday, October 19, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger The West Marion Messenger is a free community newspaper covering news of communities west of Ocala including Fore Ranch, Stone Creek, Fairfield Village, Ocala Palms, Timberwood, Falls of Ocala, Quail Meadow, Foxwood Farms and Golden Hills.

Since I am going to be out of town in Chicago and Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, for the next week, I cruised around our neighborhood looking for fall or Halloween dcor. I was amazed or surprised to find that I must be looking too early for most of our neighbors. Therefore, I am encouraging our more whimsical neighbors to bring out the beautiful fall decorations or the ghoulish Halloween fun things before I get back so that I can feature their homes in our Priscilla Geissal Looking for Halloween decorations column. Meanwhile, I have photos of one home that is ready for the ghosts and the goblins of the upcoming Halloween time. With so many children in our family, we have lots of Halloween decorations ourselves, but I am tardy in that I do not have mine out yet either. Since we will be visiting where we have lots of little kids who love the dress-up and decorations, we might have some new ideas to bring back south with us. I will feature more homes with special interesting exteriors in upcoming weeks. In the meantime, I hope that everyone is enjoying the beginning of the milder season in Florida. I am an odd ball because I love the summer time, and I do not mind the heat and humidity that others dislike. All the charm of Floridas climate appeals to me except for the hurricanes which I pray we have avoided this year. Maybe there will be no violent storms to tear down the decorations that I expect to find soon in Fairfield Village a lively place filled with lovely people. Above, the entire house; At left, the ghoul.

INDEX Fairfield Village..2 Stone Creek........4 Quail Meadow......7 Puzzles................9 VOLUME 4, NUMBER 30 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER19, 2011 Happenings Page 3 Food-Recipe Page 8 0009K0T Occupy OcalaThe national protests being dubbed as Occupy Wall Street spread to downtown Ocala on Saturday as a group of a couple hundred people gathered with signs and stood on the sidewalk, asking passing drivers of vehicles who backed them to honk. In the top photo, some of the people went on a short walk around the block north and west of the Downtown Square. They couldnt march around the Square because of the weekly Saturday market that was in operation. At the right, Stacey Barrineau displays her Hula Hoop skills while holding up a sign saying revolution. Note the highlighting of the word love which is backwards in the revolution word. Only one police officer could be seen in the area of the peaceful demonstration. Photos by Jim Clark On Saturday, Oct. 29, the Marion County Sheriffs Office, along with the Ocala and Police Department and in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), will participate in the National Pill Take Back Day. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a uniformed officer will be stationed at the following no questions asked collection sites: Marion County Sheriffs Main Operations Center, 692 N.W. 30th Ave., Ocala. Marion County Sheriff's Office Southwest District Office, 9048 S.W. State Road 200, Ocala.. Marion County Sheriff's Office South Marion District Office, 8230 S.E. 165th Mulberry Lane, The Villages. Ocala Police Department, 402 S. Pine Avenue, Ocala. The purpose of this event is to give people in the community who have a surplus of outdated prescription drugs; pills they dont have a prescription for; or pills they obtained illegally, an opportunity to turn them in without facing any criminal charges or repercussions. Marion County and the state of Florida have seen a significant increase in the abuse of prescription drugs and overdoses in the last few years. Many of these cases involve adolescents who obtained these medications from their parents or their home medicine cabinet. The Sheriffs Office encourages anyone who has prescription pills they would like to or need to get rid of, to take advantage of this National Pill Take Back Day to do so. Residents can also visit www.dea.gov to enter their zip code and locate the dropoff site closest to them. More information about prescription drug abuse is also available on this site. Keep your home and neighborhood safe by only using medications you have a prescription for, and using them responsibly. Medication take back day set for Oct. 29 Flu shotsIts flu shot season all over the area, and one community that was visited recently was Quail Meadow. Joan Christopher, right, is shown getting her flu shot from a representative of VaxCare, who inoculated 41 people that day. Local food pantries have seen requests for grocery assistance increase by up to 44 percent since this summer. The spike has coincided with a dwindling supply of donations, leaving area pantries in a dire spot and vulnerable to not being able to assist area residents. On Oct. 4, 2011, the Marion County Board of County Commissioners launched a 21-day food drive called Bring the Harvest Home to help re-stock these depleted food pantries and provide aid for Marion Countys most needy residents. The pantries are in most urgent need of: Dry goods/foods that complement dry goods (rice, pasta, pasta sauce, cereal, crackers, peanut butter and jelly). Canned meats (corned beef, corned beef hash, ham and tuna). Canned vegetables and fruit. Baby items (ranging from powdered formula and jarred food to diapers and lotion). Toiletries, such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste and toilet paper are also always needed. If you would prefer to donate by cash or check, please contact one of the main food pantries directly: Brothers Keeper (352-622-3846). Interfaith (352-629-8868). Salvation Army (352-732-8326). Early deadline for Nov. 2All material for the Nov. 2 West Marion Messenger must be submitted by e-mail on or before Thursday, Oct. 27. The office of the Messenger and the South Marion Citizen will be closed on Friday, Oct. 28, and not reopen until Monday, Oct. 31. The office is relocating to Suite 103 in the same shopping center, Kingsland Plaza, 8810 S.W. State Road 200. Help Bring the Harvest Home
