Performances will be held on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 3 p.m. in the Curtis Peterson Auditorium, 3810 N. Educational Path, Lecanto; and Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 5 and 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Charles R. Dassance Fine Arts Center at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. Tickets are $26. This 1940s live radio broadcast is a fresh new adaptation of the beloved film and holiday classic, set in the fictional studio of WVL Radio Theatre. When a blizzard keeps the professional actors from arriving in time, the station employees take the stage instead. This radio theater production is a lovely, funny and fresh take to the story everyone knows so well, said Dr. Jennifer Fryns, CF director of Visual and Performing Arts. I can think of no better time than the holidays to go to the theater with family and friends, to be entertained and reminded of the things that really matter in life. Buy tickets as a holiday gift, bring the grandkids and bundle up as the cast takes you through this wintery tale." For information and tickets, call 352-873-5810 or 352746-6721, ext. 1416. To purchase tickets online, visit tickets.CF.edu. The performances are sponsored in part by Dex One.

PINE AVE. OCALA, FL 34480 888-546-4707 W I T H L AN D WITH L AND Fairfield Village N ot just on Nov. 11 each year, but regularly the neighbors in Fairfield Village remember and honor our veterans and our current military personnel. It is a regular part of our life as distinct areas in our clubhouse are dedicated to the show of respect for our country and those who have and are still serving to protect us all. The date 11-11 was chosen as the special day to commemorate our veterans because the major hostilities of World War I were ended in 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when the Germans officially signed the armistice agreement. The next year, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the first Armistice Day. In a special statement, President Wilson said: To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the countrys service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice and councils of the nations. One of the traditions of the holiday is the celebration with a ravioli meal. This began when President Woodrow Wilson, recognizing the longing of the vets for home cooked meals, helped his White House staff to provide a special ravioli meal for some 2,000 soldiers who were invited to the White House. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution requesting President Calvin Coolidge to issue a proclamation to observe Nov. 11 as a day of special celebrations. Later, in 1938, the day was made a legal holiday. Again in 1954, Congress modified the holiday changing the name to Veterans Day. Originally celebrated always on Nov. 11, the holiday was changed in 1971 to the fourth Monday of October to be part of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This just was not that well accepted; so, in 1978 it was changed again back to the Fairfield Village always honors our veterans original date of Nov. 11. Regardless of when the day is celebrated, the community of Fairfield Village shows deserved honor to those who serve and who have served in past years. We all appreciate these special people as well as the sacrifice of their families as they are a huge part of this dedication as well. For those in our community who have been a part of this service over the years, we say that we are so proud that you are a part of this lively place filled with lovely (patriotic) people.

W e have a cat burglar in the neighborhood! However, this is not a human it is a bobcat! He has an appetite for downspouts and gutters. At first, the victims thought they might have been robbed by someone wanting to sell the metal. We now know that this isnt the case. The cat has been seen by several residents. A number of homes have had their downspouts and gutters damaged by this animal. He is probably chasing a rabbit or squirrel. Please be aware of this intruder; especially those of you with small pets. If you should see the bobcat, please call Marion County Animal Control at 671-8727. The fashion show presented by 2nd Chance Consignment Shop was very well received. The Red Hot Fillies of the Meadow (Red Hats) sponsored the show again this year. Everyone enjoyed seeing the fall fashions that are available at the consignment shop at a fraction of the cost if purchased at retail stores. Peggy Bradshaw, owner of the shop, has only first class merchandise in her shop. 2nd Chance is located in Jasmine Square. Peggy narrated the show and Denise Mohler assisted the models. Models for this years show were Marion Gartman, Maria Mollica, Carolyn Slocumb, Pat Talley, and Gloria Waddell. The fashions ranged from very casual to formal attire. If anyone is interested in sponsoring a fashion show from 2nd Chance Consignment Shop, please call Peggy Bradshaw at 352-861-1120. The November community yard sale was very well attended. Many of our streets were so crowded with cars, it was impossible to get through. There was a wide variety of items for sale even motorcycles! The next sale is in April. As always, our November calendar shows wedding anniversaries of couples in our community. Once again we have couples celebrating many years of marriage: Ed and Charlotte Woodbury celebrated 59 years and Sal and Joan Peluso have 55 years together. Congratulations to all of you. The bingo crowd is growing! The next night to play is Nov. 22. We are still looking for volunteer entertainment for the New Years Eve party. Check the Quail Meadow Reporter for more information. This party will be a fun and safe way to celebrate the New Year. Ladies, this evening is an opportunity for you to get out that dressy outfit and feel special for the evening. Tickets for this party are available for a $1 donation (Theresa, you can spend your dollar). Lil Carie has the tickets. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, November 16, 2011 9 4Wednesday, November 16, 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.

The arrest of a former Penn State assistant football coach on a 40count indictment involving child sex abuse shook the country and cost the jobs of iconic Joe Paterno, head football coach, three school officials, including the president, and an assistant coach who saw one of the crimes in progress and made only the minimal report, never telling law enforcement authorities. Jerry Sandusky's arrest put the spotlight on this type of crime more than it has been in recent memory. Experts say, however, that this is just a small sample of what really goes on in many places in this country. Anyone who read the news reports last week will never have an excuse for not reporting incidents to the proper officials. Everyone now knows that the only way to cut back on these incidents is to be vigilant, listen to children and, most importantly, don't put them in situations where things can happen. We hope that all across the country last week there were parents speaking of a normally taboo situtation, issuing warnings to their children about both strangers and about those who are family members or friends. Parents should make sure their children are never alone with anyone who could take advantage of them, and yes, it does happen, even if folks don't think it can. And when parents get the children back from occasions such as this, question them thoroughly (but not threateningly) about what they did during the time away from the parents. Certainly there have been teachers, coaches and others who run children's programs who have taken advantage of their positions, but these people are in the minority. It's very important that the good people in these professions and activities listen to the kids and act on any information they may be given. Please keep the children safe. We don't like publishing stories about arrests for things like this, but we don't hesitate to do so, so everyone can be aware of what can happen. Jerry Sandusky might go away for a very long time, but be assured there are others there to take his place. Teach all the young ones to watch out for them.

Some politicians believe and preach that free market is a national value worthy of inclusion with patriotism, motherhood, apple pie and baseball. The problem is there aint no free markets. The term free market as used by todays politicians is a misnomer. Politicians use it a lot because it sounds righteous. The idea of buying and selling things free from interference or control began with a guy named Adam Smith back in the eighteenth century, around the time America was becoming a nation. His timing was good. Our colonists were irritated by the King of England sticking his nose into how they did business and trying to tax what they bought and sold. So they declared their independence and told the King to get lost. Free market based on supply and demand received a new boost from economist Milton Friedman in 1962 and has been a rallying cry of libertarians and conservatives every since. Republicans cant say the words often enough, as if mumbling free market is some sort of mystical mantra. The phony part of the free market baloney is zillions of dollars of government subsidies, tax preferences, and laws that allow bad-boy businessmen to stay out of jail free, as evidenced by the corrupt manipulations which caused our current recession. In addition to volumes of controls, regulations, enticements, and all sorts of corporate welfare, Government has become a major investor in the markets for nonmilitary goods and services. Recent examples have been the Obama administrations spending millions just in time to help a green energy company go bankrupt, and offering tax subsidies to manipulate development of electric cars which will be sold to a few adventurous citizens at exorbitant prices. Hold on there! Isnt the Obama guy a Democrat? Sure, but everybody in Washington plays the free markets game even liberals. Gaining and keeping political power is the real name of the game. Re-quoting what we wrote on another occasion, free market evangelizing is power politics dressed up in a patriotic term intended to disguise government connivance in every aspect of our economy. Free market preaching by business is sanctimonious sounding cover-up of their solicitations for subsidies and tax credits, as well as manipulation of legitimate government functions, such as public safety and protection of citizens against economic abuse. Former President George W. Bush suggested that consumers primary freedom and most important contribution to the nations economy is to shop and spend. Free marketers are in complete agreement. In addition to our freedom to spend, we have a periodic freedom to turn out of office those politicians who continue to blow all that free-market smoke in our ears. Free markets are as extinct as a free lunch. Reader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

The Stone Creek Veterans Club held its annual Veterans Day Celebration. Event chairman, Barry Browne reported that this year's event exceeded 330 up more than 100 from last year's event. The Reunion ballroom was transformed into a room of red, white and blue. Even the candy on the tables were wrapped in red, white and blue. This transformation was led by Sheryl Browne and her committee. The Veterans host a community-wide celebration of Veterans Day to honor those who have served or are still serving our country. The event also raises money for veteran related charities which are supported by the Stone Creek Veterans. These charities include Operation Shoebox, Wounded Warriors Project on a national and international level, as well as Vets Helping Vets, The Ocala Ritz Veterans Village and Toy for Tots. They also support local charities by collecting food for Interfaith four times a year. They have generously donated food from their many events to Brothers Keeper Soup Kitchen. They continue to serve! This year's festivities included the Forest High School Air Force Junior ROTC Honor Guard and their very emotional and special presentation of the MIA, POW, HAT Ceremony. This ceremony honored all the missing and fallen. There was a lone white round table where each branch of the armed service was represented. It was truly a moving presentation and the numbers given for MIA and POW were in the thousands. The Marion County Sheriff's Pipes and Drum Corps provided an incredibly moving presentation relevant to the theme of the evening with such unique tunes as Scotland the Brave, Amazing Grace, Flowers in the Forest and various military branch songs. No event at Stone Creek is complete without a great meal. Dennis Gale was the person in charge in the kitchen and he provided an 'All American Meal' of hot dogs, hamburgers, baked beans, potato salad with an array of side dishes and desserts brought by the many residents. What a feast! During the event, there were many door prize drawings. The great prizes were generously donated by a number of local merchants and the SC Veterans would like to thank the sponsoring merchants. Arthur's, Beef O'Brady's, Bone Fish Grill, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Cold Stone Creamery, Cracker Barrel, Curvee Wine and Bistro, Dee Dee's Diner, Edwin Watts Golf, Gander Mountain, Grace Sushi, Harry's Seafood, Horse and Hound, IHOP Lindsay Financial Services, Little Joey's Pizza, Lowe's, Mc Alister's Deli, Ms. G.

Let's thank the Stone Creek Veterans and all veterans for their service to our country. Let us never forget the tremendous cost the men and women of the military have paid for our freedom. The SC Veterans continue to serve the Stone Creek Community and the community at large with their many outreach programs. Thank you!

Some of the many cooks Dennis Gale, head chef in front wearing apron. The lone round table for the ceremony of MIA and POW. S ometimes, visiting some of the activities in Ocala makes you start thinking about some serious things. That was the case over the weekend when I went to Marion Woods to view a display connected to a Vietnam War prison, dubbed the Hanoi Hilton. Back in the 1960s, I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Because I was married and later, because I had a daughter, I didn't get drafted. I went as far as a pre-induction physical, and they made note of my allergies and hay fever, but I never heard anything again. I did, however, lose a couple of friends, Frank Campeau of Bergenfield, N.J.,and John Kapeluck of Cresskill, N.J. John died in combat, and Frank died on a shipboard fire just off the coast of Vietnam.There may have been more school mates that I don't know about. Like everyone else, I heard about the horrors of the war, both from a combat perspective and a prisoner of war view. So I was drawn to the display last weekend. There weren't that many artifacts, but two of them stood out. One was a salvaged door to a cell, with a small, barred window. You got an idea how poor a view these prisoners had. The other was really brutal. It was a lead item that attached to a piece of concrete, and it had curves in it where a pair of legs, small legs, would be anchored to that concrete. There were many pictures on display at this event over the Veterans Day weekend, and one of them just showed a pair of legs being shackled down by that piece of lead. It made you cringe when you looked at it. That meant that those prisoners were lying on concrete beds on their backs while being held. There were a lot of other pictures, a map showing the location of the prison, and an aerial view of the Hanoi buildings. A lot of soldiers who came back from Vietnam weren't treated very well by the average citizens of this country. It's too bad this display wasn't available in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It would have showed, much more than words, how cruel the North Vietnamese, and possibly the Red Chinese, were in their treatment of their prisoners. The display was courtesy of an unnamed man from Jacksonville who obtained the artifacts and transported them himself to the display site in southeastern Ocala. He wants his privacy, but was willing to make the display available to the public. If it ever comes back to this area, we'll make sure that we notify the public. It's something you shouldn't miss.

In addition to our freedom to spend, we have a periodic freedom to turn out of office those politicians who continue to blow all that free-market smoke in our ears. Free markets are as extinct as a free lunch. Reader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

The Stone Creek Veterans Club held its annual Veterans Day Celebration. Event chairman, Barry Browne reported that this year's event exceeded 330 up more than 100 from last year's event. The Reunion ballroom was transformed into a room of red, white and blue. Even the candy on the tables were wrapped in red, white and blue. This transformation was led by Sheryl Browne and her committee. The Veterans host a community-wide celebration of Veterans Day to honor those who have served or are still serving our country. The event also raises money for veteran related charities which are supported by the Stone Creek Veterans. These charities include Operation Shoebox, Wounded Warriors Project on a national and international level, as well as Vets Helping Vets, The Ocala Ritz Veterans Village and Toy for Tots. They also support local charities by collecting food for Interfaith four times a year. They have generously donated food from their many events to Brothers Keeper Soup Kitchen. They continue to serve! This year's festivities included the Forest High School Air Force Junior ROTC Honor Guard and their very emotional and special presentation of the MIA, POW, HAT Ceremony. This ceremony honored all the missing and fallen. There was a lone white round table where each branch of the armed service was represented. It was truly a moving presentation and the numbers given for MIA and POW were in the thousands. The Marion County Sheriff's Pipes and Drum Corps provided an incredibly moving presentation relevant to the theme of the evening with such unique tunes as Scotland the Brave, Amazing Grace, Flowers in the Forest and various military branch songs. No event at Stone Creek is complete without a great meal. Dennis Gale was the person in charge in the kitchen and he provided an 'All American Meal' of hot dogs, hamburgers, baked beans, potato salad with an array of side dishes and desserts brought by the many residents. What a feast! During the event, there were many door prize drawings. The great prizes were generously donated by a number of local merchants and the SC Veterans would like to thank the sponsoring merchants.

S ometimes, visiting some of the activities in Ocala makes you start thinking about some serious things. That was the case over the weekend when I went to Marion Woods to view a display connected to a Vietnam War prison, dubbed the Hanoi Hilton. Back in the 1960s, I guess I was one of the lucky ones. Because I was married and later, because I had a daughter, I didn't get drafted. I went as far as a pre-induction physical, and they made note of my allergies and hay fever, but I never heard anything again. I did, however, lose a couple of friends, Frank Campeau of Bergenfield, N.J.,and John Kapeluck of Cresskill, N.J. John died in combat, and Frank died on a shipboard fire just off the coast of Vietnam.There may have been more school mates that I don't know about. Like everyone else, I heard about the horrors of the war, both from a combat perspective and a prisoner of war view. So I was drawn to the display last weekend. There weren't that many artifacts, but two of them stood out. One was a salvaged door to a cell, with a small, barred window. You got an idea how poor a view these prisoners had. The other was really brutal. It was a lead item that attached to a piece of concrete, and it had curves in it where a pair of legs, small legs, would be anchored to that concrete. There were many pictures on display at this event over the Veterans Day weekend, and one of them just showed a pair of legs being shackled down by that piece of lead. It made you cringe when you looked at it. That meant that those prisoners were lying on concrete beds on their backs while being held. There were a lot of other pictures, a map showing the location of the prison, and an aerial view of the Hanoi buildings. A lot of soldiers who came back from Vietnam weren't treated very well by the average citizens of this country. It's too bad this display wasn't available in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It would have showed, much more than words, how cruel the North Vietnamese, and possibly the Red Chinese, were in their treatment of their prisoners. The display was courtesy of an unnamed man from Jacksonville who obtained the artifacts and transported them himself to the display site in southeastern Ocala. He wants his privacy, but was willing to make the display available to the public. If it ever comes back to this area, we'll make sure that we notify the public. It's something you shouldn't miss.

W e have a cat burglar in the neighborhood! However, this is not a human it is a bobcat! He has an appetite for downspouts and gutters. At first, the victims thought they might have been robbed by someone wanting to sell the metal. We now know that this isnt the case. The cat has been seen by several residents. A number of homes have had their downspouts and gutters damaged by this animal. He is probably chasing a rabbit or squirrel. Please be aware of this intruder; especially those of you with small pets. If you should see the bobcat, please call Marion County Animal Control at 671-8727. The fashion show presented by 2nd Chance Consignment Shop was very well received. The Red Hot Fillies of the Meadow (Red Hats) sponsored the show again this year. Everyone enjoyed seeing the fall fashions that are available at the consignment shop at a fraction of the cost if purchased at retail stores. Peggy Bradshaw, owner of the shop, has only first class merchandise in her shop. 2nd Chance is located in Jasmine Square. Peggy narrated the show and Denise Mohler assisted the models. Models for this years show were Marion Gartman, Maria Mollica, Carolyn Slocumb, Pat Talley, and Gloria Waddell. The fashions ranged from very casual to formal attire. If anyone is interested in sponsoring a fashion show from 2nd Chance Consignment Shop, please call Peggy Bradshaw at 352-861-1120. The November community yard sale was very well attended. Many of our streets were so crowded with cars, it was impossible to get through. There was a wide variety of items for sale even motorcycles! The next sale is in April. As always, our November calendar shows wedding anniversaries of couples in our community. Once again we have couples celebrating many years of marriage: Ed and Charlotte Woodbury celebrated 59 years and Sal and Joan Peluso have 55 years together. Congratulations to all of you. The bingo crowd is growing! The next night to play is Nov. 22. We are still looking for volunteer entertainment for the New Years Eve party. Check the Quail Meadow Reporter for more information. This party will be a fun and safe way to celebrate the New Year. Ladies, this evening is an opportunity for you to get out that dressy outfit and feel special for the evening. Tickets for this party are available for a $1 donation (Theresa, you can spend your dollar). Lil Carie has the tickets. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, November 16, 2011 9 4Wednesday, November 16, 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.

PINE AVE. OCALA, FL 34480 888-546-4707 W I T H L AN D WITH L AND Fairfield Village N ot just on Nov. 11 each year, but regularly the neighbors in Fairfield Village remember and honor our veterans and our current military personnel. It is a regular part of our life as distinct areas in our clubhouse are dedicated to the show of respect for our country and those who have and are still serving to protect us all. The date 11-11 was chosen as the special day to commemorate our veterans because the major hostilities of World War I were ended in 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when the Germans officially signed the armistice agreement. The next year, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the first Armistice Day. In a special statement, President Wilson said: To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the countrys service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice and councils of the nations. One of the traditions of the holiday is the celebration with a ravioli meal. This began when President Woodrow Wilson, recognizing the longing of the vets for home cooked meals, helped his White House staff to provide a special ravioli meal for some 2,000 soldiers who were invited to the White House. In 1926, Congress passed a resolution requesting President Calvin Coolidge to issue a proclamation to observe Nov. 11 as a day of special celebrations. Later, in 1938, the day was made a legal holiday. Again in 1954, Congress modified the holiday changing the name to Veterans Day. Originally celebrated always on Nov. 11, the holiday was changed in 1971 to the fourth Monday of October to be part of the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. This just was not that well accepted; so, in 1978 it was changed again back to the Fairfield Village always honors our veterans original date of Nov. 11. Regardless of when the day is celebrated, the community of Fairfield Village shows deserved honor to those who serve and who have served in past years. We all appreciate these special people as well as the sacrifice of their families as they are a huge part of this dedication as well. For those in our community who have been a part of this service over the years, we say that we are so proud that you are a part of this lively place filled with lovely (patriotic) people.

Performances will be held on Sunday, Dec. 4, at 3 p.m. in the Curtis Peterson Auditorium, 3810 N. Educational Path, Lecanto; and Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 5 and 6, at 7:30 p.m. in the Charles R. Dassance Fine Arts Center at the CF Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road. Tickets are $26. This 1940s live radio broadcast is a fresh new adaptation of the beloved film and holiday classic, set in the fictional studio of WVL Radio Theatre. When a blizzard keeps the professional actors from arriving in time, the station employees take the stage instead. This radio theater production is a lovely, funny and fresh take to the story everyone knows so well, said Dr. Jennifer Fryns, CF director of Visual and Performing Arts. I can think of no better time than the holidays to go to the theater with family and friends, to be entertained and reminded of the things that really matter in life. Buy tickets as a holiday gift, bring the grandkids and bundle up as the cast takes you through this wintery tale." For information and tickets, call 352-873-5810 or 352746-6721, ext. 1416. To purchase tickets online, visit tickets.CF.edu. The performances are sponsored in part by Dex One.

At the awards banquet, the president of the Florida Press Club Sherry Mims announced that Sotomayor has been accepted into the board of the statewide club.

Powell brings extensive leadership experience and expertise in leading mental health and substance abuse agencies. He holds a MS in Clinical Counseling from Wright State University, a MA in Philanthropy and Development from St. Marys University, and a BS in Communications from Ohio University. Powells experience spans seven states and numerous strategic visions for funding, governing, developing and administering the best programs for recovery, resiliency and strength based models. He comes to Ocala from Behavioral Health Services of South Georgia where he was the chief executive officer serving a 10 county region. According to Stephen Spivey, a member and former president of the non-profits board of directors, Mr. Powell, in a relatively short time there, has been able to establish a lot of key relationships with not only legislators but other health care officials.
