At the BE Safe America Congressional Briefing presented by Safe America Foundation at the U.S. Capitol, Federal Signal Corporation announced the findings of the 2012 Public Safety Survey, which takes a hard look at how knowledgeable and prepared Americans are for emergencies. While the survey found that more than 56 percent of Americans believe they are aware of the steps they need to take should disaster strike, the results uncover a shocking lack of knowledge and even indifference surrounding emergency alerts and notifications. Not only is it necessary to create a thorough preparedness and response plan for an emergency or disaster, its critical that people are as educated as possible about the emergency communications systems in place within their communitieswhich can prove lifesaving, said Len Pagano, president and CEO, Safe America Foundation. We were surprised to see just how many people remain unaware of the alerting systems in their area, and even more disconcerting, how many are apathetic in their response to emergency scenarios and communications. Conducted for the third consecutive year by Zogby International, the survey found that 71 percent of Americans are unsure if they have a personal alerting and notification system (ANS) in their area, which includes a combination of options for calls, text and email message notifications. Yet, respondents said they would be more motivated to take action in an emergency by ANS alerts than any other communication, ahead of tradiAme r ican s r e main c o m p lac e n t d e s p i t e d ev a s t a t ing di sas t e r s New study finds many residents largely unaware of local emergency communications PHOTO BY JIM CLARKTraffic was sparse early Monday morning on West State Road 40 near the Interstate.

The survey also showed that the public is largely unaware of their local warning sirens. More than half (57 percent) of those surveyed do not know when sirens in their area are tested, and 70 percent are unaware of the sounds and sirens associated with various warnings. In fact, more than one in four respondents did not know if their community has a warning siren system at all. With all of the options available to keep the public informed of nearby disasters or emergencies, we were alarmed to see how many people arent aware of the Please see DISASTERS, Page 3 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKBrentwood openingBrentwood at Fore Ranch, a senior living community, held a ribbon cutting last week.

The reason learning to play Mah Jongg. Not long ago, none of these people knew much more about the game than its name and that it was supposed to be so much fun while challenging ones mind. Now they know a good bit more than that, but they say that they do not know enough to really qualify as good players. Therefore, the call has been made. If there are people in the Southwest Ocala area who love the game and want to help this group learn more about how to play, then your help is solicited. Would you be willing to help and have a good time with some really nice people? Fairfield Villages social activities director is Toni Belcher, and she would love a phone call from anyone who wants to be a part of helping this group or just being a part of this group. You are encouraged to contact Toni at 352-8730403, or you may want to email her at chukoni3@embarqmail. Calling all Mah Jongg players com. The group now consists mainly of ladies, but that certainly is not necessarily the way the group will develop. Maybe you know someone who can help or would like to learn as well? Please feel free to pass along the message and lets get together in Fairfield Villages Clubhouse and have a good game and good time. Surely you have heard of Fairfield Village! We are on the right of Southwest 60th Avenue just about a mile from SR 200 as you are heading toward the airport. Fairfield Village is known for its friendly neighbors, many of whom love to engage in games like Mah Jongg that will challenge their minds while they have a good time in a lively place filled with lovely people. Hope to see you soon! Priscilla Geissal A group of ladies gather to play and to learn more about Mah Jongg in Fairfield Village's Clubhouse.

Remember the words, lazy, hazy days of summer? Well, we dont have the haze and I dont think any one of us is lazy! However, activities have slowed down, or in some cases, come to a complete halt for a couple of months. We all need a break once in awhile. If you find yourself looking for something to do, we have a very wellstocked library in the clubhouse. There is a great variety of books available. Just take the ones you want to read, and when finished, just return the books to the clubhouse. Jack and Margene Sheidler do a fantastic job as our resident librarians. If you would like to donate books to the library, just leave them on the table in the library section of the clubhouse. However, they request no magazines or catalogues. Are you ready for the big community picnic? Mark your calendars and make plans to join your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse on Wednesday, July 4 for a great celebration. This is a covered dish picnic. The festivities and eating will begin at 2 p.m. So, fix your favorite picnic food and join us at the clubhouse to celebrate the birthday of our country. Dont forget to bring your table service (paper plates are great). You might want to have your swim suit with you and go for a swim in the afternoon. The pool is wonderful! We have a new restaurant in the neighborhood. 4 of a Kind Latin BBQ is now open in Quail Meadow Commons (the old Publix shopping center). They are located in the space previously used by Lorenzos Restaurant. We havent tried it yet, so if you have, let me know what you think. They advertise that if its raining they have a policy: you will receive a free empanada! We might have to check them out the next time its raining. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday closed Sunday and Monday. Here are some interesting facts you may or may not know: As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the worlds law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward ... It is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments! As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door. As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above the Supreme Court Judges, a display of the Ten Commandments. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, June 27, 2012 3 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.

In times of crisis, people need to act fastor risk waiting until its too late. Now more than ever, it is essential that we educate communities on the emergency communications options available to them, and to drive the sense of urgency surrounding swift response to emergency alerts. Even severe weather conditions do not motivate Americans to take action. Less than one half (47 percent) of survey respondents would take action based on a potential severe weather warning and onethird (33 percent) of respondents would require actual property damage or injury in order to care strongly about public safety awareness. Further, one in four respondents (28 percent) would require confirmation of severe weather, such as an actual tornado sighting, flood waters or a visible fire in order to take immediate action. A shocking 1 in 12 people said that nothing would cause them to care. We were shocked to see that the public could be so complacent when it comes to awareness and response to emergency communication, said Wilson. The fact that people could receive a warning that wouldnt motivate them to action is extremely concerning, particularly with 99 FEMA major disaster declarations issued last year alone. Survey findings show that the public continues to rely on community officials to ensure public safety. In fact, results found that more than half of respondents (58 percent) trust local and regional government to ensure sufficient public safety standards, communication and planning in their area. Yet, only 29 percent feel that their community officials currently are investing in, or giving government attention to, their public safety. In terms of potential contributing factors, more than onethird feel that the economy has had a negative impact on the level of investment in their community. Preparedness starts with awareness, said Wilson. As emergency managers strive to support their community with effective programming and planning, its imperative that the public stay informed of what communications systems local offi cials and emergency managers currently have in place and more impor tantly that communities are prepared to respond efficiently and effectively F or more information on the 2012 F ederal Signal Public Safety Sur vey visit http://www .alertnotifica tion.com/.

Speaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my todo-list. Last Monday, I had just finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away.Rev. James L.

Your best defense is the Arians innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and youll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But dont be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat crabby, as you fuss over plans that dont seem to work out. Maybe youre trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. Its trying to tell you to delay making a decision until youre sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didnt do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before its ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine family-court judge or social worker. 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Sandusky was found guilty of 45 out of 48 counts stemming from his abuse of boys during the time he was connected with the Penn State football program. It got football coach Joe Paterno fired, and the coach later died of cancer. There are still two issues to be dealt with. First, there is the appeal. One of the disturbing accusations coming after the trial came from the defense attorneys, who said they tried to resign from the case after the judge failed to give them more time to prepare. Even if you think that Sandusky is guilty, which seems to be the consensus, that lack of a delay could provide a basis for appeal in a higher court. There was also the matter of a janitors testimony being allowed as heresay. Evidently the janitor has dementia and wasnt fit to testify, which is too bad, but from a defense standpoint, you cant cross-examine someone on hearsay testimony. Second, there is the matter of other college officials. With so many victims and incidents that went on for so long, it hardly seems possible that this happened in a vacuum, although predators are very good at hiding their misdeeds. Prosecutors will have to determine who knew what was going on, and when did they know it. The verdict sends a warning to every school, whether college or lower, to be on the lookout. Victims all said they felt they wouldnt be believed. Well, now people know that with the proper testimony, they can have their day in court, and people, especially jurors, will listen. This disgusting case drew a lot of attention, and, frankly, wed like to see Sandusky sentenced and then for the whole thing to go away. That, unfortunately, is unlikely. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest Column Government becoming a nanny stateBY JIM FLYNN Thomas Jefferson said that government is best which governs least. A considerable number of state and local governments dont believe that any more. They are referred to collectively as the Nanny State, a name coined by British politician Iain MacLeod back in 1965. Recently New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched a new initiative in the national anti-obesity crusade stop sales of large sodas and other sugary drinks to everybody, including adults. Whats next doughnuts, pastries, and girl-scout cookies? Yes! In Hazelwood, Missouri, its already illegal for a girl scout to sell cookies in front of her own house. Mayor Bloomberg is a member in good standing of the Nanny-State do-gooders who are dedicated to healthier living through government intervention and supervision. New York already bans transfats in food served in the City and fast foods in poor neighborhoods. Its also against the law to smoke in public parks and at beaches. The do-goody crusade intended to micromanage the well being of all Americans is nation wide and involves more than food. Colorado has banned alcohol vapors. We dont know how that works, but our imagination sees covers and straws for all booze glasses. San Francisco, the do-goody and nannycontrol capital of America, banned Happy-Meal toys, and a cookie strips and milk promotion at bus shelters. Their concerns are not limited to pet guardians (formerly referred to as dog owners or people). The City specifies the amount of water a dog bowl should hold, and the dimensions of an appropriate dog house. To avoid seeming less concerned for its animals, the City of Chicago is considering identification implants for dogs, diapers for horses pulling carts, and living standards for elephants. Perhaps theyll specify the dimensions of an appropriate elephant house. Two California counties chase down raw milk buyers. If possible the chasers confiscate milk that was purchased legally for personal consumption. How excessive has paternalism become? Consider that its against the law in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to have trash in your car. An owner of a muddy vehicle in Minnetonka, Minnesota can be fined. As grandma used to say Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Some economists and psychologists who study nanny-state paternalism have theorized that government has more than its share of people with control obsessions. The researchers suggest the obsessed controllers believe they are acting in the best interests of the citizens they serve, for reasons of safety, fairness, equality, sobriety, health, child care, and pet care. They have adopted former Vice President Al Gores opinion that government is like grandparents. It has a nurturing role to play. Canadian social critic and political thinker Frank H. Underhill thought otherwise. He opined that the real division in the world today is not between socialism and capitalism. It is between freedom and totalitarianism. In addition, were paying thousands of federal and state employees who seem to have too little to do, and create new projects and nonsense to justify their employment until the happy day of retirement.

They want to get your money. Weve publicized a lot of these fraudulent activities and what leads to them, and still they happen. There was a phone call a couple of weeks ago from a man who said he had been a victim of the grandson in jail scam. He got a call from someone, supposedly his grandson, who said he was in a Panama City (the capital of the country, not the Florida town) jail, and needed money to get out. Without verifying the call, the man sent $3,000 to the grandson, who, of course, was not his grandson. He wanted me to publicize the incident so that other people would not be taken in. Of course, Im glad to do that, but I pointed out to him that this type of scam has been publicized in our newspaper many times. So heres the simple rule: Dont send money to anyone unless you initiate the process. If you want to send your grandkids money for a holiday, fine. But if someone calls and wants money for your grandchildren not on your life. People ask how others can be fooled into thinking they are talking to a grandchild. Well, these crooks are clever. They learn as much information as they can, and they also have a way of getting you to reveal information while you are talking.

Just recently, there was someone who was told they could share money that was found if they put up some of their own money in good faith. For some reason, this is called the pigeon drop. The victim didnt bite, however, and the scam failed. But that brings up another warning: Nothing is free. You dont get to keep money you havent earned. And remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter (another popular fraud). To put it simply, you worked hard for your money. Make sure you dont send it to anyone just because you get a little greedy and want more. And if someone tries to extort money from you in this fashion, call law enforcement.

State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point Dont give your money to strangers Note to Sandusky: Please just go away The brutal Jerry Sandusky trial came to an end last Friday night, but like many people, we think its far from over. Sandusky was found guilty of 45 out of 48 counts stemming from his abuse of boys during the time he was connected with the Penn State football program. It got football coach Joe Paterno fired, and the coach later died of cancer. There are still two issues to be dealt with. First, there is the appeal. One of the disturbing accusations coming after the trial came from the defense attorneys, who said they tried to resign from the case after the judge failed to give them more time to prepare. Even if you think that Sandusky is guilty, which seems to be the consensus, that lack of a delay could provide a basis for appeal in a higher court. There was also the matter of a janitors testimony being allowed as heresay. Evidently the janitor has dementia and wasnt fit to testify, which is too bad, but from a defense standpoint, you cant cross-examine someone on hearsay testimony. Second, there is the matter of other college officials. With so many victims and incidents that went on for so long, it hardly seems possible that this happened in a vacuum, although predators are very good at hiding their misdeeds. Prosecutors will have to determine who knew what was going on, and when did they know it. The verdict sends a warning to every school, whether college or lower, to be on the lookout. Victims all said they felt they wouldnt be believed. Well, now people know that with the proper testimony, they can have their day in court, and people, especially jurors, will listen. This disgusting case drew a lot of attention, and, frankly, wed like to see Sandusky sentenced and then for the whole thing to go away. That, unfortunately, is unlikely. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest Column Government becoming a nanny stateBY JIM FLYNN Thomas Jefferson said that government is best which governs least. A considerable number of state and local governments dont believe that any more. They are referred to collectively as the Nanny State, a name coined by British politician Iain MacLeod back in 1965. Recently New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched a new initiative in the national anti-obesity crusade stop sales of large sodas and other sugary drinks to everybody, including adults. Whats next doughnuts, pastries, and girl-scout cookies? Yes! In Hazelwood, Missouri, its already illegal for a girl scout to sell cookies in front of her own house. Mayor Bloomberg is a member in good standing of the Nanny-State do-gooders who are dedicated to healthier living through government intervention and supervision. New York already bans transfats in food served in the City and fast foods in poor neighborhoods. Its also against the law to smoke in public parks and at beaches. The do-goody crusade intended to micromanage the well being of all Americans is nation wide and involves more than food. Colorado has banned alcohol vapors. We dont know how that works, but our imagination sees covers and straws for all booze glasses. San Francisco, the do-goody and nannycontrol capital of America, banned Happy-Meal toys, and a cookie strips and milk promotion at bus shelters. Their concerns are not limited to pet guardians (formerly referred to as dog owners or people). The City specifies the amount of water a dog bowl should hold, and the dimensions of an appropriate dog house. To avoid seeming less concerned for its animals, the City of Chicago is considering identification implants for dogs, diapers for horses pulling carts, and living standards for elephants. Perhaps theyll specify the dimensions of an appropriate elephant house. Two California counties chase down raw milk buyers. If possible the chasers confiscate milk that was purchased legally for personal consumption. How excessive has paternalism become? Consider that its against the law in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to have trash in your car. An owner of a muddy vehicle in Minnetonka, Minnesota can be fined. As grandma used to say Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Some economists and psychologists who study nanny-state paternalism have theorized that government has more than its share of people with control obsessions. The researchers suggest the obsessed controllers believe they are acting in the best interests of the citizens they serve, for reasons of safety, fairness, equality, sobriety, health, child care, and pet care. They have adopted former Vice President Al Gores opinion that government is like grandparents. It has a nurturing role to play. Canadian social critic and political thinker Frank H.

Speaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my todo-list. Last Monday, I had just finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away.Rev. James L.

Your best defense is the Arians innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and youll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But dont be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat crabby, as you fuss over plans that dont seem to work out. Maybe youre trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. Its trying to tell you to delay making a decision until youre sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didnt do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before its ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine family-court judge or social worker. 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Remember the words, lazy, hazy days of summer? Well, we dont have the haze and I dont think any one of us is lazy! However, activities have slowed down, or in some cases, come to a complete halt for a couple of months. We all need a break once in awhile. If you find yourself looking for something to do, we have a very wellstocked library in the clubhouse. There is a great variety of books available. Just take the ones you want to read, and when finished, just return the books to the clubhouse. Jack and Margene Sheidler do a fantastic job as our resident librarians. If you would like to donate books to the library, just leave them on the table in the library section of the clubhouse. However, they request no magazines or catalogues. Are you ready for the big community picnic? Mark your calendars and make plans to join your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse on Wednesday, July 4 for a great celebration. This is a covered dish picnic. The festivities and eating will begin at 2 p.m. So, fix your favorite picnic food and join us at the clubhouse to celebrate the birthday of our country. Dont forget to bring your table service (paper plates are great). You might want to have your swim suit with you and go for a swim in the afternoon. The pool is wonderful! We have a new restaurant in the neighborhood. 4 of a Kind Latin BBQ is now open in Quail Meadow Commons (the old Publix shopping center). They are located in the space previously used by Lorenzos Restaurant. We havent tried it yet, so if you have, let me know what you think. They advertise that if its raining they have a policy: you will receive a free empanada! We might have to check them out the next time its raining. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday closed Sunday and Monday. Here are some interesting facts you may or may not know: As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the worlds law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward ... It is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments! As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door. As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above the Supreme Court Judges, a display of the Ten Commandments. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, June 27, 2012 3 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.

In times of crisis, people need to act fastor risk waiting until its too late. Now more than ever, it is essential that we educate communities on the emergency communications options available to them, and to drive the sense of urgency surrounding swift response to emergency alerts. Even severe weather conditions do not motivate Americans to take action. Less than one half (47 percent) of survey respondents would take action based on a potential severe weather warning and onethird (33 percent) of respondents would require actual property damage or injury in order to care strongly about public safety awareness. Further, one in four respondents (28 percent) would require confirmation of severe weather, such as an actual tornado sighting, flood waters or a visible fire in order to take immediate action. A shocking 1 in 12 people said that nothing would cause them to care. We were shocked to see that the public could be so complacent when it comes to awareness and response to emergency communication, said Wilson. The fact that people could receive a warning that wouldnt motivate them to action is extremely concerning, particularly with 99 FEMA major disaster declarations issued last year alone. Survey findings show that the public continues to rely on community officials to ensure public safety. In fact, results found that more than half of respondents (58 percent) trust local and regional government to ensure sufficient public safety standards, communication and planning in their area. Yet, only 29 percent feel that their community officials currently are investing in, or giving government attention to, their public safety. In terms of potential contributing factors, more than onethird feel that the economy has had a negative impact on the level of investment in their community. Preparedness starts with awareness, said Wilson. As emergency managers strive to support their community with effective programming and planning, its imperative that the public stay informed of what communications systems local offi cials and emergency managers currently have in place and more impor tantly that communities are prepared to respond efficiently and effectively F or more information on the 2012 F ederal Signal Public Safety Sur vey visit http://www .alertnotifica tion.com/.

At the BE Safe America Congressional Briefing presented by Safe America Foundation at the U.S. Capitol, Federal Signal Corporation announced the findings of the 2012 Public Safety Survey, which takes a hard look at how knowledgeable and prepared Americans are for emergencies. While the survey found that more than 56 percent of Americans believe they are aware of the steps they need to take should disaster strike, the results uncover a shocking lack of knowledge and even indifference surrounding emergency alerts and notifications. Not only is it necessary to create a thorough preparedness and response plan for an emergency or disaster, its critical that people are as educated as possible about the emergency communications systems in place within their communitieswhich can prove lifesaving, said Len Pagano, president and CEO, Safe America Foundation. We were surprised to see just how many people remain unaware of the alerting systems in their area, and even more disconcerting, how many are apathetic in their response to emergency scenarios and communications. Conducted for the third consecutive year by Zogby International, the survey found that 71 percent of Americans are unsure if they have a personal alerting and notification system (ANS) in their area, which includes a combination of options for calls, text and email message notifications.

Remember the words, lazy, hazy days of summer? Well, we dont have the haze and I dont think any one of us is lazy! However, activities have slowed down, or in some cases, come to a complete halt for a couple of months. We all need a break once in awhile. If you find yourself looking for something to do, we have a very wellstocked library in the clubhouse. There is a great variety of books available. Just take the ones you want to read, and when finished, just return the books to the clubhouse. Jack and Margene Sheidler do a fantastic job as our resident librarians. If you would like to donate books to the library, just leave them on the table in the library section of the clubhouse. However, they request no magazines or catalogues. Are you ready for the big community picnic? Mark your calendars and make plans to join your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse on Wednesday, July 4 for a great celebration. This is a covered dish picnic. The festivities and eating will begin at 2 p.m. So, fix your favorite picnic food and join us at the clubhouse to celebrate the birthday of our country. Dont forget to bring your table service (paper plates are great). You might want to have your swim suit with you and go for a swim in the afternoon. The pool is wonderful! We have a new restaurant in the neighborhood. 4 of a Kind Latin BBQ is now open in Quail Meadow Commons (the old Publix shopping center). They are located in the space previously used by Lorenzos Restaurant. We havent tried it yet, so if you have, let me know what you think. They advertise that if its raining they have a policy: you will receive a free empanada! We might have to check them out the next time its raining. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday closed Sunday and Monday. Here are some interesting facts you may or may not know: As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the worlds law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward ... It is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments! As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door. As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above the Supreme Court Judges, a display of the Ten Commandments. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, June 27, 2012 3 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.

In times of crisis, people need to act fastor risk waiting until its too late. Now more than ever, it is essential that we educate communities on the emergency communications options available to them, and to drive the sense of urgency surrounding swift response to emergency alerts. Even severe weather conditions do not motivate Americans to take action. Less than one half (47 percent) of survey respondents would take action based on a potential severe weather warning and onethird (33 percent) of respondents would require actual property damage or injury in order to care strongly about public safety awareness. Further, one in four respondents (28 percent) would require confirmation of severe weather, such as an actual tornado sighting, flood waters or a visible fire in order to take immediate action. A shocking 1 in 12 people said that nothing would cause them to care. We were shocked to see that the public could be so complacent when it comes to awareness and response to emergency communication, said Wilson. The fact that people could receive a warning that wouldnt motivate them to action is extremely concerning, particularly with 99 FEMA major disaster declarations issued last year alone. Survey findings show that the public continues to rely on community officials to ensure public safety. In fact, results found that more than half of respondents (58 percent) trust local and regional government to ensure sufficient public safety standards, communication and planning in their area. Yet, only 29 percent feel that their community officials currently are investing in, or giving government attention to, their public safety. In terms of potential contributing factors, more than onethird feel that the economy has had a negative impact on the level of investment in their community. Preparedness starts with awareness, said Wilson. As emergency managers strive to support their community with effective programming and planning, its imperative that the public stay informed of what communications systems local officials and emergency managers currently have in place and more importantly, that communities are prepared to respond efficiently and effectively.

S peaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my todo-list. Last Monday, I had just finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away.Rev. James L.

Your best defense is the Arians innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and youll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But dont be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat crabby, as you fuss over plans that dont seem to work out. Maybe youre trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. Its trying to tell you to delay making a decision until youre sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didnt do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before its ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine family-court judge or social worker. 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Sandusky was found guilty of 45 out of 48 counts stemming from his abuse of boys during the time he was connected with the Penn State football program. It got football coach Joe Paterno fired, and the coach later died of cancer. There are still two issues to be dealt with. First, there is the appeal. One of the disturbing accusations coming after the trial came from the defense attorneys, who said they tried to resign from the case after the judge failed to give them more time to prepare. Even if you think that Sandusky is guilty, which seems to be the consensus, that lack of a delay could provide a basis for appeal in a higher court. There was also the matter of a janitors testimony being allowed as heresay. Evidently the janitor has dementia and wasnt fit to testify, which is too bad, but from a defense standpoint, you cant cross-examine someone on hearsay testimony. Second, there is the matter of other college officials. With so many victims and incidents that went on for so long, it hardly seems possible that this happened in a vacuum, although predators are very good at hiding their misdeeds. Prosecutors will have to determine who knew what was going on, and when did they know it. The verdict sends a warning to every school, whether college or lower, to be on the lookout. Victims all said they felt they wouldnt be believed. Well, now people know that with the proper testimony, they can have their day in court, and people, especially jurors, will listen. This disgusting case drew a lot of attention, and, frankly, wed like to see Sandusky sentenced and then for the whole thing to go away. That, unfortunately, is unlikely. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest Column Government becoming a nanny stateBY JIM FLYNN Thomas Jefferson said that government is best which governs least. A considerable number of state and local governments dont believe that any more. They are referred to collectively as the Nanny State, a name coined by British politician Iain MacLeod back in 1965. Recently New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched a new initiative in the national anti-obesity crusade stop sales of large sodas and other sugary drinks to everybody, including adults. Whats next doughnuts, pastries, and girl-scout cookies? Yes! In Hazelwood, Missouri, its already illegal for a girl scout to sell cookies in front of her own house. Mayor Bloomberg is a member in good standing of the Nanny-State do-gooders who are dedicated to healthier living through government intervention and supervision. New York already bans transfats in food served in the City and fast foods in poor neighborhoods. Its also against the law to smoke in public parks and at beaches. The do-goody crusade intended to micromanage the well being of all Americans is nation wide and involves more than food. Colorado has banned alcohol vapors. We dont know how that works, but our imagination sees covers and straws for all booze glasses. San Francisco, the do-goody and nannycontrol capital of America, banned Happy-Meal toys, and a cookie strips and milk promotion at bus shelters. Their concerns are not limited to pet guardians (formerly referred to as dog owners or people). The City specifies the amount of water a dog bowl should hold, and the dimensions of an appropriate dog house. To avoid seeming less concerned for its animals, the City of Chicago is considering identification implants for dogs, diapers for horses pulling carts, and living standards for elephants. Perhaps theyll specify the dimensions of an appropriate elephant house. Two California counties chase down raw milk buyers. If possible the chasers confiscate milk that was purchased legally for personal consumption. How excessive has paternalism become? Consider that its against the law in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to have trash in your car. An owner of a muddy vehicle in Minnetonka, Minnesota can be fined. As grandma used to say Cleanliness is next to Godliness. Some economists and psychologists who study nanny-state paternalism have theorized that government has more than its share of people with control obsessions. The researchers suggest the obsessed controllers believe they are acting in the best interests of the citizens they serve, for reasons of safety, fairness, equality, sobriety, health, child care, and pet care. They have adopted former Vice President Al Gores opinion that government is like grandparents. It has a nurturing role to play. Canadian social critic and political thinker Frank H. Underhill thought otherwise. He opined that the real division in the world today is not between socialism and capitalism. It is between freedom and totalitarianism. In addition, were paying thousands of federal and state employees who seem to have too little to do, and create new projects and nonsense to justify their employment until the happy day of retirement.

They want to get your money. Weve publicized a lot of these fraudulent activities and what leads to them, and still they happen. There was a phone call a couple of weeks ago from a man who said he had been a victim of the grandson in jail scam. He got a call from someone, supposedly his grandson, who said he was in a Panama City (the capital of the country, not the Florida town) jail, and needed money to get out. Without verifying the call, the man sent $3,000 to the grandson, who, of course, was not his grandson. He wanted me to publicize the incident so that other people would not be taken in. Of course, Im glad to do that, but I pointed out to him that this type of scam has been publicized in our newspaper many times. So heres the simple rule: Dont send money to anyone unless you initiate the process. If you want to send your grandkids money for a holiday, fine. But if someone calls and wants money for your grandchildren not on your life. People ask how others can be fooled into thinking they are talking to a grandchild. Well, these crooks are clever. They learn as much information as they can, and they also have a way of getting you to reveal information while you are talking. I know I have 12 grandchildren, and I probably wouldnt recognize the voices of the older ones if they called and didnt identify themselves right away. Of course there are other scams out there. Just recently, there was someone who was told they could share money that was found if they put up some of their own money in good faith. For some reason, this is called the pigeon drop. The victim didnt bite, however, and the scam failed. But that brings up another warning: Nothing is free. You dont get to keep money you havent earned. And remember, you cant win a sweepstakes that you didnt enter (another popular fraud). To put it simply, you worked hard for your money. Make sure you dont send it to anyone just because you get a little greedy and want more. And if someone tries to extort money from you in this fashion, call law enforcement. Maybe you can help put some of these people out of business. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com or at 352-854-3986.

Maybe you can help put some of these people out of business. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com or at 352-854-3986.

S peaking of good days, and who isnt these days, I am looking forward to two in a row. I know it may be wishful thinking on my part, but a person has to do something with his time. Last week I almost broke my record with two consecutive good days. But, wouldnt you know it, it just did not happen. With all my experience in this matter, I plan to write a book someday: How to Ruin a Perfectly Good Day. I know 197 different ways to ruin a good day. Who knows, by next week it might pass the 200 mark. When that happens, I will celebrate. For those who do not know how to ruin a perfectly good day, let me outline some tried and true suggestions from my vast wealth of experience. The first thing is to define what a perfectly good day is. After all, how can you ruin a perfectly good day (PG day) if you dont recognize it? Of course, I agree that nothing is really perfect. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder and nobody can hold her for very long. What is perfect to me may not be perfect to someone else like my wife. A perfectly good day is one of those rare days when everything goes according to plan my plan that is. I like to get up in the morning and over my morning coffee, review my to-do-list for the day and put things in order of importance. A successful to-do-list, in my opinion, is a list that does not take all day to do. I need some time for myself. If my to-do-list has too much to do, the chances of the day being a PG day is between slim and nil. A PG day has more hours in it than things to do. I hate it when I run out of day before I finish my todo-list. Last Monday, I had just finished my morning cup of Joe and finished reviewing my to-do-list and seemed to have the day well in hand. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage noticed my face sporting a playful smile. If there is something my wife cant stand, it is a playful smile across my map. For some reason she thinks Im up to no good. Usually shes right. Why dont you call and straighten out the telephone bill? she said, as coolly as a preacher at a summer picnic. It was on my list but not anywhere near the top. I was rather nonchalant and not ready for this task. I had not seen my chalant for weeks but it did not concern me. Looking back, I should have been concerned, or at least looked for my chalant. Actually, I was upbeat and gingerly picked up the phone and dialed the number. Soon a cheery voice was giving me instructions; Our options have changed to serve you better. Please listen carefully. If you wish to continue in English please press 1. In the confusion, I pressed 4 and got Japanese. I began the process all over again. This time I pressed the right button and got the rest of the instructions in English. From then on, I pressed number after number and got nowhere. For the next 12 minutes, I was pressing numbers and listening to instructions. Finally, I heard the telephone ringing and a cheerful voice answered. At this point, I thought I was home free, but alas, fate was only putting a hefty mortgage on my home. Ello, can I to help please you? Huh, I said as diplomatically as I knew how. Can I to help please you? the voice in the phone repeated. I may not be the sharpest pencil in the box but I knew I was talking to someone as familiar with the English language as a politician is to the truth. Is there anyone there, I pled, who speaks English? Ah, yes, I to speak berry goot English. Can I to help please you? So, I threw caution to the wind and explained the mix-up on my bill. Aaah, I understand. This is billing problem. I transfer you to billing department. For the next 20 minutes, I was treated, and I say this with tongue firmly planted in my cheek, to a musical interlude. It was elevator music; it raised my blood pressure. For the next three hours, I went from pillar to post in the telephone department and got no nearer to solving my telephone-billing mix-up. One of the problems with being a minister is you are not allowed to swear. By 2:30 in the afternoon, I had an overwhelming urge to swear. My difficulty was simply, I could not think of any swear words to use and ah, fiddlesticks does not seem to carry much significance in such circumstance. By 4 that afternoon, I still had no solution to my billing problem. I had exhausted all my options, not to mention my patience, and nothing to show for it. All I wanted to do was pay my bill. Through my experience with the telephone company, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses from the Bible. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3 KJV.) It is comforting to know that God is only a prayer away.Rev. James L.

Your best defense is the Arians innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and youll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude is fine, as far as it goes. But dont be lulled into a false sense of confidence. There are still problems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat crabby, as you fuss over plans that dont seem to work out. Maybe youre trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. Its trying to tell you to delay making a decision until youre sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didnt do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before its ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it. BORN THIS WEEK: You are sensitive to matters that involve your home and family. You would make a fine family-court judge or social worker. 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Remember the words, lazy, hazy days of summer? Well, we dont have the haze and I dont think any one of us is lazy! However, activities have slowed down, or in some cases, come to a complete halt for a couple of months. We all need a break once in awhile. If you find yourself looking for something to do, we have a very wellstocked library in the clubhouse. There is a great variety of books available. Just take the ones you want to read, and when finished, just return the books to the clubhouse. Jack and Margene Sheidler do a fantastic job as our resident librarians. If you would like to donate books to the library, just leave them on the table in the library section of the clubhouse. However, they request no magazines or catalogues. Are you ready for the big community picnic? Mark your calendars and make plans to join your friends and neighbors at the clubhouse on Wednesday, July 4 for a great celebration. This is a covered dish picnic. The festivities and eating will begin at 2 p.m. So, fix your favorite picnic food and join us at the clubhouse to celebrate the birthday of our country. Dont forget to bring your table service (paper plates are great). You might want to have your swim suit with you and go for a swim in the afternoon. The pool is wonderful! We have a new restaurant in the neighborhood. 4 of a Kind Latin BBQ is now open in Quail Meadow Commons (the old Publix shopping center). They are located in the space previously used by Lorenzos Restaurant. We havent tried it yet, so if you have, let me know what you think. They advertise that if its raining they have a policy: you will receive a free empanada! We might have to check them out the next time its raining. The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday closed Sunday and Monday. Here are some interesting facts you may or may not know: As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the worlds law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward ... It is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments! As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door. As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above the Supreme Court Judges, a display of the Ten Commandments. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, June 27, 2012 3 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.

Now more than ever, it is essential that we educate communities on the emergency communications options available to them, and to drive the sense of urgency surrounding swift response to emergency alerts. Even severe weather conditions do not motivate Americans to take action. Less than one half (47 percent) of survey respondents would take action based on a potential severe weather warning and onethird (33 percent) of respondents would require actual property damage or injury in order to care strongly about public safety awareness. Further, one in four respondents (28 percent) would require confirmation of severe weather, such as an actual tornado sighting, flood waters or a visible fire in order to take immediate action. A shocking 1 in 12 people said that nothing would cause them to care. We were shocked to see that the public could be so complacent when it comes to awareness and response to emergency communication, said Wilson. The fact that people could receive a warning that wouldnt motivate them to action is extremely concerning, particularly with 99 FEMA major disaster declarations issued last year alone. Survey findings show that the public continues to rely on community officials to ensure public safety. In fact, results found that more than half of respondents (58 percent) trust local and regional government to ensure sufficient public safety standards, communication and planning in their area. Yet, only 29 percent feel that their community officials currently are investing in, or giving government attention to, their public safety. In terms of potential contributing factors, more than onethird feel that the economy has had a negative impact on the level of investment in their community. Preparedness starts with awareness, said Wilson. As emergency managers strive to support their community with effective programming and planning, its imperative that the public stay informed of what communications systems local officials and emergency managers currently have in place and more importantly, that communities are prepared to respond efficiently and effectively.

At the BE Safe America Congressional Briefing presented by Safe America Foundation at the U.S. Capitol, Federal Signal Corporation announced the findings of the 2012 Public Safety Survey, which takes a hard look at how knowledgeable and prepared Americans are for emergencies. While the survey found that more than 56 percent of Americans believe they are aware of the steps they need to take should disaster strike, the results uncover a shocking lack of knowledge and even indifference surrounding emergency alerts and notifications. Not only is it necessary to create a thorough preparedness and response plan for an emergency or disaster, its critical that people are as educated as possible about the emergency communications systems in place within their communitieswhich can prove lifesaving, said Len Pagano, president and CEO, Safe America Foundation. We were surprised to see just how many people remain unaware of the alerting systems in their area, and even more disconcerting, how many are apathetic in their response to emergency scenarios and communications. Conducted for the third consecutive year by Zogby International, the survey found that 71 percent of Americans are unsure if they have a personal alerting and notification system (ANS) in their area, which includes a combination of options for calls, text and email message notifications. Yet, respondents said they would be more motivated to take action in an emergency by ANS alerts than any other communication, ahead of tradiAmericans remain complacent despite devastating disasters New study finds many residents largely unaware of local emergency communications PHOTO BY JIM CLARKTraffic was sparse early Monday morning on West State Road 40 near the Interstate.

The survey also showed that the public is largely unaware of their local warning sirens. More than half (57 percent) of those surveyed do not know when sirens in their area are tested, and 70 percent are unaware of the sounds and sirens associated with various warnings. In fact, more than one in four respondents did not know if their community has a warning siren system at all. With all of the options available to keep the public informed of nearby disasters or emergencies, we were alarmed to see how many people arent aware of the Please see DISASTERS Page 3 PHOTO BY JIM CLARKBrentwood opening Brentwood at Fore Ranch, a senior living community, held a ribbon cutting last week.
