The Twilight Saga series, based on Stephenie Meyers bestselling book series, stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, and tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan (Stewart) who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen (Pattinson), a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together...even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. The action-packed, modern day vampire love story Twilight, the first in the series, was released in theaters on Nov. 21, 2008, to a blockbuster reception. The second installment of the franchise, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, was released Nov. 20, 2009, and the third installment, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was released June 30, 2010. In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, Bella and Edward, plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by a marriage and honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of a child which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black. This film begins the conclusion of this blockbuster film series. Advance tickets can be purchased at the Marion Theatre box office or at fandango.com.

A series of questions and incomprehensible outcomes run through their head. They wonder what to do, where their child was last seen, and what was discussed before they left home that day. Kids run away from home. Even more contemplate running. And more than half of the youth calls handled by the National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) deal with a youth who is already on the street as a runaway, throwaway, or homeless youth. November is National Runaway Prevention Month and NRS and the National Network for Youth (NNY) are embarking on the fifth annual national public education campaign to raise awareness of youth runaway issues, and to educate Americans about solutions that help prevent youth from running away. Both organizations are working closely with local school-based and social service agencies across the nation, encouraging each group to implement activities throughout November, said Maureen Blaha, NRS executive director. Locally, the Arnette House is participating in the Green Light Project for National Runaway Prevention Month. This November, showing support for runaway youth is as easy as flipping a switch. Porch lights across the country will glow green during November to raise awareness and show support for runaway youth. The Arnette House is asking Marion County residents to replace their porch light with a green bulb in November. The Arnette House has a limited number of green bulbs for free distribution. If you are interested in receiving a free green bulb, please call 352-622-4432. The NRS crisis hotline is 1-800-RUNAWAY. Green Light Project fights runaway problem

I n 2009, then president of the Stone Creek Garden Club, Linda Fiorella, had a vision of a Reflection Garden Past, Present and Future. This garden would be a place where residents could come and enjoy the beauty of the garden and the surrounding area. It would remember residents who had lived in Stone Creek, the present residents and those who will come and enjoy the beauty of Stone Creek. Lindas vision of this garden became a reality. On Saturday, Oct. 22, the Garden Club hosted a Garden Dinner at the Reunion Center. The evenings projected proceeds are anticipated to bring in over $2,700 in funds for Phase 2 of the Park. Phase 2 will include accessible paths, seating and a water feature. There was a toast at sunset in the garden and the following poems were read by members of the club. The poem was written by Linda and Bernie Messer read Yesterdays poem: Ive come to visit Yesterday Where each flower tells a story, Of friends and faces, homes and places All filled with timeless Glory. Todays poem was read by Marion Pierleoni. Then the gentlest breeze comes through the trees And brings me to Today, Where every colored bird that sings Gives comfort to my Day. Tomorrows poem was read by Mary Ellen Pfeffer. And, when the Lake grows still and the Sunset calms, I know Tomorrow still awaits us all, When Ill come back again, and begin anew To listen for the Mornings call. The seven neighborhoods of Stone Creek were represented by seven candles encircling the Reflection Garden. Linda will be the first to tell you that over the years many have helped to make this garden a reality. One can have a vision but it is only the action and drive of many that make it come to life. Linda would like to thank those who helped at this event. They are: Deborah Parsons, Karen and George Kaufer, Mike and Karen Fisher, Dave and Carol Fitch, Rita and Larry Singer, along with the garden club board and their spouses. Judy Vokes was the auctioneer and Bob Vokes helped with the sunset toasts. Linda would like to extend her gratitude and thanks to the countless others who worked at other events to make this garden a reality. The garden is here so come and enjoy! Thank you Garden Club members for this wonderful new addition to Stone Creek! O ktoberfest and auction was enjoyed by about 50 residents. Everyone enjoyed the evening of eating and then participating in the auction. John Stone did an outstanding job as the auctioneer. His assistants were Frank Christopher, Paul Cigrand, and Dave Yoders. Lil Carie was the cashier. Everyone seemed pleased with the gifts; several of the items promoted a lively bidding process. We began to feel sorry for Theresa Yoders and her one dollar bids! Marion and Ron Gartman added a touch of Bavaria to the evening in their authentic costumes along with the keg of beer. Now that November is already here, we need to get our calendars marked with all the monthly events. The first thing to remember is that this Friday, the 4th, the Red Hot Fillies are sponsoring a fashion show presented by Second Chance Consignment Shop. This is open to all the women of Quail Meadow. The models will be women from our Red Hat group. The show will begin at 1 p.m.; dessert will be provided. Come join us and see the fashions of fall from Second Chance. Also on Friday, the 4th is 1st Friday evening get together at the Clubhouse. Come join your neighbors for an evening of visiting and getting to know your neighbors. Join us at 7 p.m. Saturday, the 5th, is the community yard sale. Get your items out early. If you arent participating in the sale, why dont you go see what others are selling you might find just what you are looking for! Its time to get your tickets for the Holiday Dinner to be at the Clubhouse on Monday, Nov. 14. This is a catered dinner and tickets must be purchased by Nov. 9. We are requesting a $12 donation per ticket to cover the cost of the dinner. Kathy Voss and Charlotte Payne have the tickets. The annual Craft Fair and Bake Sale is on Saturday, the 12th. While at the fair be sure to visit Jo Stones booth. Jo, Elaine Barberis, Bettie Haupt, and Kathy Voss have been busy making small camouflage pockets with a cross inside to be donated to Operation Shoebox for our servicemen and women. They are asking for a $4 donation with each pocket. There will be more on the fair next week. Now, if your calendars arent full, just wait until next week. Remember to change your clocks Saturday night! messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, November 2, 2011 5 8Wednesday, November 2, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 0009CXD 2775 NW 49th Avenue Ocala Shops at Foxwood 352-368-7662 Fax 352-622-5318 Mon.-Thurs. 11-9 Fri.-Sat. 11-10 Sun. 12-8 0009NTP Monday Pizza Special 18 Cheese $7.95 Daily Specials 11am-3pm Sr. Specials 3-5pm ROMA ITALIAN RESTAURANT ROMA ITALIAN RESTAURANT Prime Rib & 2 Sides $ 14 00 SATURDAY 2 FOR $22.00 Lobster & 2 Sides FRIDAY $ 11 95 1 LB. $ 16 95 1 1 2 LB.

State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point Countys new sex offender list comes out Sales tax on Internet I n recent weeks, there has been renewed discussion of Florida closing the loophole that allows many Internet sales to be untaxed. Local businesses and the Florida Chamber of Commerce have urged legislators to close this loophole to level the playing field between online vendors and local merchants. Today, some Internet sales are taxed, and some arent. Under Florida law, all Internet sales are subject to tax, and if the vendor does not charge sales tax, individual purchasers are supposed to pay the tax. However, very few individuals voluntarily fill out tax forms and send sales taxes on their Internet purchases to the Department of Revenue. Currently, companies selling over the Internet cannot be compelled to pay state sales taxes unless they have a physical presence in the state, such as branches or offices. This means that a company without a store in the state is not compelled to pay sales taxes, but a company with a brick-and-mortar store in the state charges sales taxes on both instore and Internet sales. This discrepancy is the result of a 1992 Supreme Court ruling that vendors without a physical presence in a state cannot be legally required to collect and remit taxes to the state. This gives a company without stores in Florida a cost advantage, because its prices are immediately 6 percent less than a local store. Proposals to tax Internet sales have been discussed in the Florida Legislature since 2002, when the state joined with 41 other states to ratify a voluntary national effort called the Streamlined Sales Tax Project (SSTP). However, Florida has not modified its sales and use tax codes to be in full compliance with the voluntary remittance program. Opposition to any sales tax on Internet sales has come from large operations such as Amazon and also from small vendors who sell on eBay. Some Florida legislators have also opposed Internet sales taxes on the grounds that they are new taxes. Others argue that it is not a new tax since the tax is currently due on all Internet sales, but is not uniformly collected. At a time when the state is facing a serious financial shortfall, and local merchants are suffering, we believe our legislators should seriously consider this issue, both from a revenue standpoint, and from the standpoint of being fair to our local merchants who pay local taxes and provide local jobs. Citrus County Chronicle O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Y our L etters Time for tax reformOur IRS tax system is broken and must be replaced! Its full of loopholes and contradictions, and is so complicated its nearly impossible to interpret and administer. The size of the tax code is 70,000+ pages and still growing. Mindboggling! Just to comply with the requirements of the IRS code (filling out tax forms, hiring tax-preparers, etc.), the 2012 compliance costs will be $363 billion. The IRS budget for 2012 is $13 billion. When these costs are factored in, for every $1 expended because of IRS requirements, the IRS collects just $6 in tax revenues. Not a very impressive bang for our buck! This $6 is revenue that will be used to bolster our sagging economy. But, we cant do too much bolstering with only $6. By comparison, fair tax administrative costs will be about $19 billion. For each $1 expended on fair tax, America realizes $136 in tax revenues 22 times the IRSs meager $6. Brief descriptions of the two most talked about types of tax replacement follow: 1. Flat tax: a single-rate tax on income. The concept is an adequate one considering the unfair, multiple-rates we currently have. However, it requires a portion of our existing tax structure which is in disrepair to administer it. And, Congress can pass exceptions to the single-rate until it eventually begins to look like the tax code we now have. Also, a flat tax will not capture the legal and illegal activities of the underground economy. These activities are an estimated $1.3 trillion annually in untaxed earnings. 2. Fair tax: a national consumption or sales tax on the purchase of new goods. It is not income driven. Everybody keeps 100 percent of everything they earn; people always know exactly how much money they have and how much they can spend. The poor are treated more fairly than they are under our current tax system. People are taxed at 23 percent but only on the new things they purchase. The more an entity earns the more things it will buy and the more revenue America will have. The only negative to a fair tax, is that it hasnt yet been implemented. One GOP presidential hopeful proposes a 999 Plan which combines the above two: a 9 percent corporate and 9 percent personal flat tax combined with a 9 percent fair tax. It is better than what we have now, however, considering the above, a standalone fair tax plan is much more logical. If you are truly concerned about Americas future, you must eagerly support the implementation of a tax replacement. Politicians may tell you they support tax reform, but unless they actively push for it, they probably dont. If they dont actively support tax reform, tell them you wont vote for them in 2012. Please begin your tax replacement research at FairTax.org. Its the right thing to do and this is the time to do it.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29 FREE FOOD Drawing for FREE IPAD BOUNCE HOUSE FOR KIDS M a r i o n C o u n t y s F l o o r i n g S u p e r s t o r e T he Sheriffs Office came out with its annual list of sex predators and sex offenders last week. The booklet lists 648 violators with their photos and home addresses, all of which are public record. Although, fortunately, I didnt recognize anyone I knew, it did make for some interesting reading. The violators are broken down by Zip Code, which makes comparison of the areas quite easy. As an aside, it also shows how ridiculous the Zip Code designations are, with adjacent Zip Code numbers at opposite ends of the county, and two different Zip Codes for the County Jail. That, of course, is a postal service problem. Of the 648 violators, 25 are currently in jail, 16 are women, and the vast majority are white males. Looking at the breakdown by Zip Codes, the ones with more than 30 violators include Citra, Ocklawaha, Belleview, Dunnellon, and the Shores area. There is one Jim Clark Editor northwest area that has a large number, but about half its list includes people in the county jail. Some Zips have only one or two people listed, but that is misleading, because it is mostly the Zip Codes that are shared with another county. Supposedly the list is accurate, but Im a little nervous about printing specific addresses of anyone, because we are such a mobile society. I can remember once many years ago when I ran the police report address of a sex violator who had just been arrested. It was a nasty crime, and some people were throwing things at his house, etc. Problem was, he had moved out, and some innocent little old lady was living alone in that house. We had to run a quick correction. Thats why to this day I rarely run the specific address of people who are arrested. I figure if I get the neighborhood right, the people in that neighborhood will know, or at least be able to find out, who it is. There are 15 people listed in the Zip Code serving much of our area, 34481. The main Sheriffs Office should have these books available for those who didnt get one, but call first to make sure that you dont take a trip there for nothing.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

And, Congress can pass exceptions to the single-rate until it eventually begins to look like the tax code we now have. Also, a flat tax will not capture the legal and illegal activities of the underground economy. These activities are an estimated $1.3 trillion annually in untaxed earnings. 2. Fair tax: a national consumption or sales tax on the purchase of new goods. It is not income driven. Everybody keeps 100 percent of everything they earn; people always know exactly how much money they have and how much they can spend. The poor are treated more fairly than they are under our current tax system. People are taxed at 23 percent but only on the new things they purchase. The more an entity earns the more things it will buy and the more revenue America will have. The only negative to a fair tax, is that it hasnt yet been implemented. One GOP presidential hopeful proposes a 999 Plan which combines the above two: a 9 percent corporate and 9 percent personal flat tax combined with a 9 percent fair tax. It is better than what we have now, however, considering the above, a standalone fair tax plan is much more logical. If you are truly concerned about Americas future, you must eagerly support the implementation of a tax replacement. Politicians may tell you they support tax reform, but unless they actively push for it, they probably dont. If they dont actively support tax reform, tell them you wont vote for them in 2012. Please begin your tax replacement research at FairTax.org. Its the right thing to do and this is the time to do it.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 29 FREE FOOD Drawing for FREE IPAD BOUNCE HOUSE FOR KIDS M a r i o n C o u n t y s F l o o r i n g S u p e r s t o r e T he Sheriffs Office came out with its annual list of sex predators and sex offenders last week. The booklet lists 648 violators with their photos and home addresses, all of which are public record. Although, fortunately, I didnt recognize anyone I knew, it did make for some interesting reading. The violators are broken down by Zip Code, which makes comparison of the areas quite easy. As an aside, it also shows how ridiculous the Zip Code designations are, with adjacent Zip Code numbers at opposite ends of the county, and two different Zip Codes for the County Jail. That, of course, is a postal service problem. Of the 648 violators, 25 are currently in jail, 16 are women, and the vast majority are white males. Looking at the breakdown by Zip Codes, the ones with more than 30 violators include Citra, Ocklawaha, Belleview, Dunnellon, and the Shores area. There is one Jim Clark Editor northwest area that has a large number, but about half its list includes people in the county jail. Some Zips have only one or two people listed, but that is misleading, because it is mostly the Zip Codes that are shared with another county. Supposedly the list is accurate, but Im a little nervous about printing specific addresses of anyone, because we are such a mobile society. I can remember once many years ago when I ran the police report address of a sex violator who had just been arrested. It was a nasty crime, and some people were throwing things at his house, etc. Problem was, he had moved out, and some innocent little old lady was living alone in that house. We had to run a quick correction. Thats why to this day I rarely run the specific address of people who are arrested. I figure if I get the neighborhood right, the people in that neighborhood will know, or at least be able to find out, who it is. There are 15 people listed in the Zip Code serving much of our area, 34481. The main Sheriffs Office should have these books available for those who didnt get one, but call first to make sure that you dont take a trip there for nothing.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

I n 2009, then president of the Stone Creek Garden Club, Linda Fiorella, had a vision of a Reflection Garden Past, Present and Future. This garden would be a place where residents could come and enjoy the beauty of the garden and the surrounding area. It would remember residents who had lived in Stone Creek, the present residents and those who will come and enjoy the beauty of Stone Creek. Lindas vision of this garden became a reality. On Saturday, Oct. 22, the Garden Club hosted a Garden Dinner at the Reunion Center. The evenings projected proceeds are anticipated to bring in over $2,700 in funds for Phase 2 of the Park. Phase 2 will include accessible paths, seating and a water feature. There was a toast at sunset in the garden and the following poems were read by members of the club. The poem was written by Linda and Bernie Messer read Yesterdays poem: Ive come to visit Yesterday Where each flower tells a story, Of friends and faces, homes and places All filled with timeless Glory. Todays poem was read by Marion Pierleoni. Then the gentlest breeze comes through the trees And brings me to Today, Where every colored bird that sings Gives comfort to my Day. Tomorrows poem was read by Mary Ellen Pfeffer. And, when the Lake grows still and the Sunset calms, I know Tomorrow still awaits us all, When Ill come back again, and begin anew To listen for the Mornings call. The seven neighborhoods of Stone Creek were represented by seven candles encircling the Reflection Garden. Linda will be the first to tell you that over the years many have helped to make this garden a reality. One can have a vision but it is only the action and drive of many that make it come to life. Linda would like to thank those who helped at this event. They are: Deborah Parsons, Karen and George Kaufer, Mike and Karen Fisher, Dave and Carol Fitch, Rita and Larry Singer, along with the garden club board and their spouses. Judy Vokes was the auctioneer and Bob Vokes helped with the sunset toasts. Linda would like to extend her gratitude and thanks to the countless others who worked at other events to make this garden a reality. The garden is here so come and enjoy! Thank you Garden Club members for this wonderful new addition to Stone Creek! O ktoberfest and auction was enjoyed by about 50 residents. Everyone enjoyed the evening of eating and then participating in the auction. John Stone did an outstanding job as the auctioneer. His assistants were Frank Christopher, Paul Cigrand, and Dave Yoders. Lil Carie was the cashier. Everyone seemed pleased with the gifts; several of the items promoted a lively bidding process. We began to feel sorry for Theresa Yoders and her one dollar bids! Marion and Ron Gartman added a touch of Bavaria to the evening in their authentic costumes along with the keg of beer. Now that November is already here, we need to get our calendars marked with all the monthly events. The first thing to remember is that this Friday, the 4th, the Red Hot Fillies are sponsoring a fashion show presented by Second Chance Consignment Shop. This is open to all the women of Quail Meadow. The models will be women from our Red Hat group. The show will begin at 1 p.m.; dessert will be provided. Come join us and see the fashions of fall from Second Chance. Also on Friday, the 4th is 1st Friday evening get together at the Clubhouse. Come join your neighbors for an evening of visiting and getting to know your neighbors. Join us at 7 p.m. Saturday, the 5th, is the community yard sale. Get your items out early. If you arent participating in the sale, why dont you go see what others are selling you might find just what you are looking for! Its time to get your tickets for the Holiday Dinner to be at the Clubhouse on Monday, Nov. 14. This is a catered dinner and tickets must be purchased by Nov. 9. We are requesting a $12 donation per ticket to cover the cost of the dinner. Kathy Voss and Charlotte Payne have the tickets. The annual Craft Fair and Bake Sale is on Saturday, the 12th. While at the fair be sure to visit Jo Stones booth. Jo, Elaine Barberis, Bettie Haupt, and Kathy Voss have been busy making small camouflage pockets with a cross inside to be donated to Operation Shoebox for our servicemen and women. They are asking for a $4 donation with each pocket. There will be more on the fair next week. Now, if your calendars arent full, just wait until next week. Remember to change your clocks Saturday night! messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, November 2, 2011 5 8Wednesday, November 2, 2011 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 0009CXD 2775 NW 49th Avenue Ocala Shops at Foxwood 352-368-7662 Fax 352-622-5318 Mon.-Thurs. 11-9 Fri.-Sat. 11-10 Sun. 12-8 0009NTP Monday Pizza Special 18 Cheese $7.95 Daily Specials 11am-3pm Sr. Specials 3-5pm ROMA ITALIAN RESTAURANT ROMA ITALIAN RESTAURANT Prime Rib & 2 Sides $ 14 00 SATURDAY 2 FOR $22.00 Lobster & 2 Sides FRIDAY $ 11 95 1 LB. $ 16 95 1 1 2 LB.

A series of questions and incomprehensible outcomes run through their head. They wonder what to do, where their child was last seen, and what was discussed before they left home that day. Kids run away from home. Even more contemplate running. And more than half of the youth calls handled by the National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) deal with a youth who is already on the street as a runaway, throwaway, or homeless youth. November is National Runaway Prevention Month and NRS and the National Network for Youth (NNY) are embarking on the fifth annual national public education campaign to raise awareness of youth runaway issues, and to educate Americans about solutions that help prevent youth from running away. Both organizations are working closely with local school-based and social service agencies across the nation, encouraging each group to implement activities throughout November, said Maureen Blaha, NRS executive director. Locally, the Arnette House is participating in the Green Light Project for National Runaway Prevention Month. This November, showing support for runaway youth is as easy as flipping a switch. Porch lights across the country will glow green during November to raise awareness and show support for runaway youth. The Arnette House is asking Marion County residents to replace their porch light with a green bulb in November. The Arnette House has a limited number of green bulbs for free distribution. If you are interested in receiving a free green bulb, please call 352-622-4432. The NRS crisis hotline is 1-800-RUNAWAY. Green Light Project fights runaway problem
