But a major work project looms and soon will demand much of your attention through the 23rd. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your enthusiasm persuades even the toughest doubters to listen to what youre proposing. But dont push too hard, or youll push them away. Moderate for best results.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your reluctance to help restart a stalled relationship could be traced to unresolved doubts about your partners honesty. Rely on a trusted friends advice.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Cutting back on some of your activities for a few days helps restore your energy levels. You should be feeling ready to tackle your many projects early next week. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) A co-worker might be secretly carping about your work to mutual colleagues. But associates will come to your defense, and the situation will ultimately work to your advantage. BORN THIS WEEK: Your ambition makes you a success at whatever you choose to do especially if its in the world of the performing arts. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure N ot that there was really anything wrong with the pool or clubhouse, but it was nice to see some recent improvements that make things more appealing for summer activities especially around the pool area. Some upgrades to the pool and to the hot tub are much appreciated. More noticeable, however, is all the new pool furniture. The old furniture was not exactly on its last legs, but the new additions are definitely very nice. The colors are really attractive and the fact that the pieces are so much lighter than the previous furniture makes them more convenient to use. And one more thing the lounge chairs are much more comfortable for those of us who like to lie there in the sun next to the pool. Our clubhouse has a nice billiards room which sees lots of activity and a weight room that is very wellFairfield Village Fairfield Village spruces up community to make summer activities appealing equipped for a community no larger than ours. The exceptional library or media room provide lots of options for those who love to read or watch the latest films. The books are rotated often and the ones that have been available for a good while are donated to some worthy facilities. Even with all the heavy rain that our area experienced with Tropical Storm Debby, Fairfield Village did not have the flooding issues that many communities had. We are very grateful that someone many years ago seems to have planned intelligently for the always possible deluges that we can have here in Central Florida. Altogether it can be said that the facilities are more ready than ever for the upcoming social activities that many anticipate eagerly this time of year and on into the later summer and fall when our snow birds will be returning. I can say in a slightly different way than usual that our community is really looking lovely and those of us who stay here year round are as lively as any group of 55+ neighbors could be expected to be. Personally, I hope everyone is enjoying the summer as much as most of us here in Fairfield Village are enjoying ours. Priscilla Geissal The rocking chairs are placed on the shady porch so neighbors can relax and enjoy conversation. More photos, Page 4

No matter the occasion or location, these packable, snackable recipes are foods fit for a fabulous picnic. Bean Salad Stuffed Shells are a simple, flavorful, portable appetizer. Jumbo shells filled with a can of 3 or 4 bean salad, herbs and cheese make great finger food. Baby Beet and Farro Salad is an easy pack-and-go side. Whole pickled baby beets just right for one bite are the star of this whole grain salad, tossed with Dijon mustard dressing. Picnic Sandwiches with Pickled Beet-Mango Slaw, piled high with deli meats, goat cheese and a tangy-sweet slaw can be made ahead. Wrapped tightly and refrigerated for several hours, the flavors meld deliciously. Warm weather classic lemonade gets a ruby-red makeover. Simply add antioxidant rich beets to frozen lemonade concentrate, and Pink Lemonade is ready to enjoy. A Tex-Mex inspired picnic of Southwestern Marinated Chicken with Bean Salad is a meal all its own. The grilled chicken marinated in liquid from a can of southwestern bean salad pairs perfectly with the bean salad for a fast fiesta that can be served warm or chilled just add tortillas and perhaps a margarita.

State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point Triskaidekaphobia, paraskevidekatriaphobia Snowbirds take note: Its cooler here N ote to all the snowbirds who left Ocala to head north for the summer, supposedly to avoid the Florida heat in July, August and September: Its cooler here. To be sure, its very hot, in the mid 90s for several days late last week and early this week. But when you hear of things such as 107 in St. Louis and 103 in, of all places, Billings, Montana, then suddenly you dont feel so bad about staying here. With more than 50 deaths, as of this writing, reported across the country during the heat wave, its important to warn people to stay safe during this weather, even here in Florida, where you might think youve adjusted to the heat. Stay hydrated. Water is still the best thing for keeping you body functioning normally. Whatever you do, dont drink a cold beer or something like that to cool off. Alcohol hurts the fight against dehydration instead of helping. Stay indoors as much as possible. In an area where almost everyone has access to air conditioning, keep it comfortable in your house. If you do have to spend a considerable amount of time outdoors, drink that water, wear a hat, and try to find some shade if youre in one location for a while. Of course, here in Florida theres another summer hazard, the threat of lightning. Dont get caught outside during a thunderstorm; you never know where that next lightning strike will be. And if theres a storm approaching, dont be lulled by the fact that its still nice outside. Last Sunday in Arlington, Texas, just outside of Dallas, the Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers were playing a Major League Baseball game, when there was a clap of thunder, in the sunlight, that was so loud it sounded as if an explosion had taken place. Shaken players ran off the field into their dugouts and fans scampered to get under the stands. A couple of weeks ago we were worried about flooding. Now its the heat and maybe the lightning. Just make sure you do everything possible to stay safe during this typical Florida summer weather. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest Column The Court speaks: Now what happens?BY JIM FLYNN Everyone seems to have an opinion about the legal outcome of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, even though 99 percent of Americans havent read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court ruling. Were temporarily among the 99 percent, but well get to the ruling sometime soon. Until then, were adhering to the favorite opening line of humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935): All I know is what I just read in the papers. We Americans are fortunate that in addition to freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly the first amendment to the Constitution provides freedom of opinion. We have a right to petition the government to redress our grievances. Without reference to the Constitution, Congress infers a right to ignore our opinions and complaints between elections. Congress people can redress their grievances with the Supreme Court by getting re-elected. Back in power, the sponsors and supporters can administer the Affordable Care Act as they see fit. On the other side of the aisle, by getting elected or re-elected the opponents intend to repeal the Act, and substitute an alternative health care plan, which they say they are still working on. At the same time Congressional Republicans say theyre waiting until more specific plans evolve. Which is it, working or waiting? Perhaps the most important quote from Chief Justice John Roberts was about the court itself: It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Those decisions are entrusted to our nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. Was that a subtle suggestion? More important than the Supreme Courts decision will be the cost and effect of implementing the Act. When it was being considered by Congress, members confessed that they hadnt read all 2,400 pages. Acting as apologist for Congress, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a quote for which she will be long remembered: We have to pass the bill so that you can understand whats in it. The most important aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that its an entitlement. Entitlements are forever. Government bureaucrats have trouble discontinuing entitlements for people who have deceased, and for some who never existed. Another problem with entitlements is the inability of federal actuaries to guess how much they will cost year after year. When Medicare began the guesstimate was it would cost $238 million the first year. Actual cost was $1 billion. Thats a thousand millions a quadruple error. More important than uncontrollable costs, the Affordable Care Act will be enshrined in history as Obamacare. It will be recognized as the keystone of President Obamas ambition to make America a social democracy. Patient Protection and Affordable Care will cap the arch of change which includes Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and a number of other social programs. On the campaign trail for re-election, Mr. Obama still refers to his 2008 campaign slogan Change we can believe in.

Dont worry, I looked up the spelling, because I didnt know it off the top of my head. Its the fear of the number 13. Why people are afraid of that number, I dont know, but you can be sure for people like that, this is one of those few bad weeks of the year. Its the week of Friday the 13th, and if you have Paraskevidekatriaphobia, then you are afraid of that date. Ive known companies and organizations that wouldnt schedule anything on that date. There have been buildings built in major cities that go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, ignoring the number 13. There are many roots of the bad things that happen with 13, most of them disproven by serious study. It used to be that no athlete would wear the number 13, since it was considered bad luck. But guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino wore it, and didnt do too badly, and currently Alex Rodriguez (Arod) of the New York Yankees is No. 13. Hes not too shabby a baseball player, either. Actually, its always been amazing to me how many people put their stock in superstitions. Fear of things like a black cat (my wife and I had one for years), walking under a ladder and breaking a mirror seem almost to border on devil worship. Things like that dont create bad luck usually, people create their own problems and like to have something else to blame it on. We run the horoscope in our newspapers, but my only use for it is for entertainment. I like to check my horoscope after the week has passed, just to see how silly the predictions in it were. Probably 99 times out of 100 they were wrong. If you take the horoscope seriously, well, try putting it aside for a month or two and see if it changes your life. I doubt if it will. So as you go through the latter part of this week, dont worry about walking under a ladder or petting a black cat. You might not want to break a mirror, though. That can get a little messy.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com or at 352-854-3986. There are 13 paragraphs in this column. Quail Meadow The Ladies Luncheon on Friday, the 13th will be at noon at Ruby Tuesdays Restaurant not the Braised Onion. Make your reservations with Marion Gartman or Pat Tobin.Picnic a success The 4th of July picnic at the clubhouse was a great success. About 50 residents came together to celebrate this great holiday. The weather cooperated it looked like we were going to have a storm in the afternoon, but it just passed over us. The food, as always, was delicious! The decorated tables were very festive with the red, white, and blue. We appreciate the work of Theresa Yoders and the social committee for all the work to make each event successful. Ron Gartman provided corn on the cob, which he cooked on his corn cooker outside by the pool. The corn was super delicious. During the meal, we were entertained with patriotic music (on CDs). Everyone seemed to enjoy the fellowship, as well as the food. Helen Dougherty must be one of the luckiest people in the neighborhood! Can you believe she won the drawing for the 50/50, and then also was the winner of three of the door prizes! I understand she is also very lucky with the Florida lottery scratch-off tickets. Bob Tobin was also in the winners circle he won two of the door prizes (wine and a new American flag). The final door prize, a bottle of wine, was won by Ron Gartman. This was the first time Helen had attended any of our dinners, but she says she is coming back! Did you see Pat Tobin in her hat? I think she has a hat for every holiday. There were many patriotic shirts worn by the men and women. The neighborhood was also decorated with many flags for the day. Its great to see so many flags flying from the houses, or placed in the yards. Driveway repairsThe QMRPOA board is waiting on the report from Geo Tech regarding the repairs needed/recomLadies Luncheon moved mended on the clubhouse driveway.

State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends On Point Triskaidekaphobia, paraskevidekatriaphobia Snowbirds take note: Its cooler here N ote to all the snowbirds who left Ocala to head north for the summer, supposedly to avoid the Florida heat in July, August and September: Its cooler here. To be sure, its very hot, in the mid 90s for several days late last week and early this week. But when you hear of things such as 107 in St. Louis and 103 in, of all places, Billings, Montana, then suddenly you dont feel so bad about staying here. With more than 50 deaths, as of this writing, reported across the country during the heat wave, its important to warn people to stay safe during this weather, even here in Florida, where you might think youve adjusted to the heat. Stay hydrated. Water is still the best thing for keeping you body functioning normally. Whatever you do, dont drink a cold beer or something like that to cool off. Alcohol hurts the fight against dehydration instead of helping. Stay indoors as much as possible. In an area where almost everyone has access to air conditioning, keep it comfortable in your house. If you do have to spend a considerable amount of time outdoors, drink that water, wear a hat, and try to find some shade if youre in one location for a while. Of course, here in Florida theres another summer hazard, the threat of lightning. Dont get caught outside during a thunderstorm; you never know where that next lightning strike will be. And if theres a storm approaching, dont be lulled by the fact that its still nice outside. Last Sunday in Arlington, Texas, just outside of Dallas, the Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers were playing a Major League Baseball game, when there was a clap of thunder, in the sunlight, that was so loud it sounded as if an explosion had taken place. Shaken players ran off the field into their dugouts and fans scampered to get under the stands. A couple of weeks ago we were worried about flooding. Now its the heat and maybe the lightning. Just make sure you do everything possible to stay safe during this typical Florida summer weather. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest Column The Court speaks: Now what happens?BY JIM FLYNN Everyone seems to have an opinion about the legal outcome of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, even though 99 percent of Americans havent read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court ruling. Were temporarily among the 99 percent, but well get to the ruling sometime soon. Until then, were adhering to the favorite opening line of humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935): All I know is what I just read in the papers. We Americans are fortunate that in addition to freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly the first amendment to the Constitution provides freedom of opinion. We have a right to petition the government to redress our grievances. Without reference to the Constitution, Congress infers a right to ignore our opinions and complaints between elections. Congress people can redress their grievances with the Supreme Court by getting re-elected. Back in power, the sponsors and supporters can administer the Affordable Care Act as they see fit. On the other side of the aisle, by getting elected or re-elected the opponents intend to repeal the Act, and substitute an alternative health care plan, which they say they are still working on. At the same time Congressional Republicans say theyre waiting until more specific plans evolve. Which is it, working or waiting? Perhaps the most important quote from Chief Justice John Roberts was about the court itself: It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Those decisions are entrusted to our nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. Was that a subtle suggestion? More important than the Supreme Courts decision will be the cost and effect of implementing the Act. When it was being considered by Congress, members confessed that they hadnt read all 2,400 pages. Acting as apologist for Congress, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a quote for which she will be long remembered: We have to pass the bill so that you can understand whats in it. The most important aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that its an entitlement. Entitlements are forever. Government bureaucrats have trouble discontinuing entitlements for people who have deceased, and for some who never existed. Another problem with entitlements is the inability of federal actuaries to guess how much they will cost year after year. When Medicare began the guesstimate was it would cost $238 million the first year. Actual cost was $1 billion. Thats a thousand millions a quadruple error. More important than uncontrollable costs, the Affordable Care Act will be enshrined in history as Obamacare. It will be recognized as the keystone of President Obamas ambition to make America a social democracy. Patient Protection and Affordable Care will cap the arch of change which includes Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and a number of other social programs. On the campaign trail for re-election, Mr. Obama still refers to his 2008 campaign slogan Change we can believe in.

Dont worry, I looked up the spelling, because I didnt know it off the top of my head. Its the fear of the number 13. Why people are afraid of that number, I dont know, but you can be sure for people like that, this is one of those few bad weeks of the year. Its the week of Friday the 13th, and if you have Paraskevidekatriaphobia, then you are afraid of that date. Ive known companies and organizations that wouldnt schedule anything on that date. There have been buildings built in major cities that go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, ignoring the number 13. There are many roots of the bad things that happen with 13, most of them disproven by serious study. It used to be that no athlete would wear the number 13, since it was considered bad luck. But guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino wore it, and didnt do too badly, and currently Alex Rodriguez (Arod) of the New York Yankees is No. 13. Hes not too shabby a baseball player, either. Actually, its always been amazing to me how many people put their stock in superstitions. Fear of things like a black cat (my wife and I had one for years), walking under a ladder and breaking a mirror seem almost to border on devil worship. Things like that dont create bad luck usually, people create their own problems and like to have something else to blame it on. We run the horoscope in our newspapers, but my only use for it is for entertainment. I like to check my horoscope after the week has passed, just to see how silly the predictions in it were. Probably 99 times out of 100 they were wrong. If you take the horoscope seriously, well, try putting it aside for a month or two and see if it changes your life. I doubt if it will. So as you go through the latter part of this week, dont worry about walking under a ladder or petting a black cat. You might not want to break a mirror, though. That can get a little messy.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com or at 352-854-3986. There are 13 paragraphs in this column. Quail Meadow The Ladies Luncheon on Friday, the 13th will be at noon at Ruby Tuesdays Restaurant not the Braised Onion. Make your reservations with Marion Gartman or Pat Tobin.Picnic a success The 4th of July picnic at the clubhouse was a great success. About 50 residents came together to celebrate this great holiday. The weather cooperated it looked like we were going to have a storm in the afternoon, but it just passed over us. The food, as always, was delicious! The decorated tables were very festive with the red, white, and blue. We appreciate the work of Theresa Yoders and the social committee for all the work to make each event successful. Ron Gartman provided corn on the cob, which he cooked on his corn cooker outside by the pool. The corn was super delicious. During the meal, we were entertained with patriotic music (on CDs). Everyone seemed to enjoy the fellowship, as well as the food. Helen Dougherty must be one of the luckiest people in the neighborhood! Can you believe she won the drawing for the 50/50, and then also was the winner of three of the door prizes! I understand she is also very lucky with the Florida lottery scratch-off tickets. Bob Tobin was also in the winners circle he won two of the door prizes (wine and a new American flag). The final door prize, a bottle of wine, was won by Ron Gartman. This was the first time Helen had attended any of our dinners, but she says she is coming back! Did you see Pat Tobin in her hat? I think she has a hat for every holiday. There were many patriotic shirts worn by the men and women. The neighborhood was also decorated with many flags for the day. Its great to see so many flags flying from the houses, or placed in the yards.

No use grumbling, Lamb. Just do it, and then get back to the fun times. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Theres still time for you Ferdinands and Fernandas to relax and sniff the roses. But a major work project looms and soon will demand much of your attention through the 23rd. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your enthusiasm persuades even the toughest doubters to listen to what youre proposing. But dont push too hard, or youll push them away. Moderate for best results. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels are rising, and you feel you can handle anything the job requires. Thats great. But dont isolate yourself. Keep your door open to your workplace colleagues. LEO (July 23 Aug. 22) A workplace change could lead to that promotion youve been hoping for. But youll have to face some tough competition before the Lion can claim his or her share of the goodies.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your ambition makes you a success at whatever you choose to do especially if its in the world of the performing arts. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure N ot that there was really anything wrong with the pool or clubhouse, but it was nice to see some recent improvements that make things more appealing for summer activities especially around the pool area. Some upgrades to the pool and to the hot tub are much appreciated. More noticeable, however, is all the new pool furniture. The old furniture was not exactly on its last legs, but the new additions are definitely very nice. The colors are really attractive and the fact that the pieces are so much lighter than the previous furniture makes them more convenient to use. And one more thing the lounge chairs are much more comfortable for those of us who like to lie there in the sun next to the pool. Our clubhouse has a nice billiards room which sees lots of activity and a weight room that is very wellFairfield Village Fairfield Village spruces up community to make summer activities appealing equipped for a community no larger than ours. The exceptional library or media room provide lots of options for those who love to read or watch the latest films. The books are rotated often and the ones that have been available for a good while are donated to some worthy facilities. Even with all the heavy rain that our area experienced with Tropical Storm Debby, Fairfield Village did not have the flooding issues that many communities had. We are very grateful that someone many years ago seems to have planned intelligently for the always possible deluges that we can have here in Central Florida. Altogether it can be said that the facilities are more ready than ever for the upcoming social activities that many anticipate eagerly this time of year and on into the later summer and fall when our snow birds will be returning. I can say in a slightly different way than usual that our community is really looking lovely and those of us who stay here year round are as lively as any group of 55+ neighbors could be expected to be. Personally, I hope everyone is enjoying the summer as much as most of us here in Fairfield Village are enjoying ours. Priscilla Geissal The rocking chairs are placed on the shady porch so neighbors can relax and enjoy conversation. More photos, Page 4

But associates will come to your defense, and the situation will ultimately work to your advantage. BORN THIS WEEK: Your ambition makes you a success at whatever you choose to do especially if its in the world of the performing arts. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure Not that there was really anything wrong with the pool or clubhouse, but it was nice to see some recent improvements that make things more appealing for summer activities especially around the pool area. Some upgrades to the pool and to the hot tub are much appreciated. More noticeable, however, is all the new pool furniture. The old furniture was not exactly on its last legs, but the new additions are definitely very nice. The colors are really attractive and the fact that the pieces are so much lighter than the previous furniture makes them more convenient to use. And one more thing the lounge chairs are much more comfortable for those of us who like to lie there in the sun next to the pool. Our clubhouse has a nice billiards room which sees lots of activity and a weight room that is very wellFairfield Village Fairfield Village spruces up community to make summer activities appealing equipped for a community no larger than ours. The exceptional library or media room provide lots of options for those who love to read or watch the latest films. The books are rotated often and the ones that have been available for a good while are donated to some worthy facilities. Even with all the heavy rain that our area experienced with Tropical Storm Debby, Fairfield Village did not have the flooding issues that many communities had. We are very grateful that someone many years ago seems to have planned intelligently for the always possible deluges that we can have here in Central Florida. Altogether it can be said that the facilities are more ready than ever for the upcoming social activities that many anticipate eagerly this time of year and on into the later summer and fall when our snow birds will be returning. I can say in a slightly different way than usual that our community is really looking lovely and those of us who stay here year round are as lively as any group of 55+ neighbors could be expected to be. Personally, I hope everyone is enjoying the summer as much as most of us here in Fairfield Village are enjoying ours. Priscilla Geissal The rocking chairs are placed on the shady porch so neighbors can relax and enjoy conversation. More photos, Page 4

No matter the occasion or location, these packable, snackable recipes are foods fit for a fabulous picnic. Bean Salad Stuffed Shells are a simple, flavorful, portable appetizer. Jumbo shells filled with a can of 3 or 4 bean salad, herbs and cheese make great finger food. Baby Beet and Farro Salad is an easy pack-and-go side. Whole pickled baby beets just right for one bite are the star of this whole grain salad, tossed with Dijon mustard dressing. Picnic Sandwiches with Pickled Beet-Mango Slaw, piled high with deli meats, goat cheese and a tangy-sweet slaw can be made ahead. Wrapped tightly and refrigerated for several hours, the flavors meld deliciously. Warm weather classic lemonade gets a ruby-red makeover. Simply add antioxidant rich beets to frozen lemonade concentrate, and Pink Lemonade is ready to enjoy. A Tex-Mex inspired picnic of Southwestern Marinated Chicken with Bean Salad is a meal all its own. The grilled chicken marinated in liquid from a can of southwestern bean salad pairs perfectly with the bean salad for a fast fiesta that can be served warm or chilled just add tortillas and perhaps a margarita.

To be sure, its very hot, in the mid 90s for several days late last week and early this week. But when you hear of things such as 107 in St. Louis and 103 in, of all places, Billings, Montana, then suddenly you dont feel so bad about staying here. With more than 50 deaths, as of this writing, reported across the country during the heat wave, its important to warn people to stay safe during this weather, even here in Florida, where you might think youve adjusted to the heat. Stay hydrated. Water is still the best thing for keeping you body functioning normally. Whatever you do, dont drink a cold beer or something like that to cool off. Alcohol hurts the fight against dehydration instead of helping. Stay indoors as much as possible. In an area where almost everyone has access to air conditioning, keep it comfortable in your house. If you do have to spend a considerable amount of time outdoors, drink that water, wear a hat, and try to find some shade if youre in one location for a while. Of course, here in Florida theres another summer hazard, the threat of lightning. Dont get caught outside during a thunderstorm; you never know where that next lightning strike will be. And if theres a storm approaching, dont be lulled by the fact that its still nice outside. Last Sunday in Arlington, Texas, just outside of Dallas, the Minnesota Twins and Texas Rangers were playing a Major League Baseball game, when there was a clap of thunder, in the sunlight, that was so loud it sounded as if an explosion had taken place. Shaken players ran off the field into their dugouts and fans scampered to get under the stands. A couple of weeks ago we were worried about flooding. Now its the heat and maybe the lightning.

Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest Column The Court speaks: Now what happens?BY JIM FLYNN Everyone seems to have an opinion about the legal outcome of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, even though 99 percent of Americans havent read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court ruling. Were temporarily among the 99 percent, but well get to the ruling sometime soon. Until then, were adhering to the favorite opening line of humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935): All I know is what I just read in the papers. We Americans are fortunate that in addition to freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly the first amendment to the Constitution provides freedom of opinion. We have a right to petition the government to redress our grievances. Without reference to the Constitution, Congress infers a right to ignore our opinions and complaints between elections. Congress people can redress their grievances with the Supreme Court by getting re-elected. Back in power, the sponsors and supporters can administer the Affordable Care Act as they see fit. On the other side of the aisle, by getting elected or re-elected the opponents intend to repeal the Act, and substitute an alternative health care plan, which they say they are still working on. At the same time Congressional Republicans say theyre waiting until more specific plans evolve. Which is it, working or waiting? Perhaps the most important quote from Chief Justice John Roberts was about the court itself: It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Those decisions are entrusted to our nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. Was that a subtle suggestion? More important than the Supreme Courts decision will be the cost and effect of implementing the Act. When it was being considered by Congress, members confessed that they hadnt read all 2,400 pages. Acting as apologist for Congress, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a quote for which she will be long remembered: We have to pass the bill so that you can understand whats in it. The most important aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that its an entitlement. Entitlements are forever. Government bureaucrats have trouble discontinuing entitlements for people who have deceased, and for some who never existed. Another problem with entitlements is the inability of federal actuaries to guess how much they will cost year after year. When Medicare began the guesstimate was it would cost $238 million the first year. Actual cost was $1 billion. Thats a thousand millions a quadruple error. More important than uncontrollable costs, the Affordable Care Act will be enshrined in history as Obamacare. It will be recognized as the keystone of President Obamas ambition to make America a social democracy. Patient Protection and Affordable Care will cap the arch of change which includes Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and a number of other social programs. On the campaign trail for re-election, Mr. Obama still refers to his 2008 campaign slogan Change we can believe in.

Dont worry, I looked up the spelling, because I didnt know it off the top of my head. Its the fear of the number 13. Why people are afraid of that number, I dont know, but you can be sure for people like that, this is one of those few bad weeks of the year. Its the week of Friday the 13th, and if you have Paraskevidekatriaphobia, then you are afraid of that date. Ive known companies and organizations that wouldnt schedule anything on that date. There have been buildings built in major cities that go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, ignoring the number 13. There are many roots of the bad things that happen with 13, most of them disproven by serious study. It used to be that no athlete would wear the number 13, since it was considered bad luck. But guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino wore it, and didnt do too badly, and currently Alex Rodriguez (Arod) of the New York Yankees is No. 13. Hes not too shabby a baseball player, either. Actually, its always been amazing to me how many people put their stock in superstitions. Fear of things like a black cat (my wife and I had one for years), walking under a ladder and breaking a mirror seem almost to border on devil worship. Things like that dont create bad luck usually, people create their own problems and like to have something else to blame it on. We run the horoscope in our newspapers, but my only use for it is for entertainment. I like to check my horoscope after the week has passed, just to see how silly the predictions in it were. Probably 99 times out of 100 they were wrong. If you take the horoscope seriously, well, try putting it aside for a month or two and see if it changes your life. I doubt if it will. So as you go through the latter part of this week, dont worry about walking under a ladder or petting a black cat. You might not want to break a mirror, though. That can get a little messy.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com or at 352-854-3986. There are 13 paragraphs in this column. Quail Meadow The Ladies Luncheon on Friday, the 13th will be at noon at Ruby Tuesdays Restaurant not the Braised Onion. Make your reservations with Marion Gartman or Pat Tobin.Picnic a success The 4th of July picnic at the clubhouse was a great success. About 50 residents came together to celebrate this great holiday. The weather cooperated it looked like we were going to have a storm in the afternoon, but it just passed over us. The food, as always, was delicious! The decorated tables were very festive with the red, white, and blue. We appreciate the work of Theresa Yoders and the social committee for all the work to make each event successful. Ron Gartman provided corn on the cob, which he cooked on his corn cooker outside by the pool. The corn was super delicious. During the meal, we were entertained with patriotic music (on CDs). Everyone seemed to enjoy the fellowship, as well as the food. Helen Dougherty must be one of the luckiest people in the neighborhood! Can you believe she won the drawing for the 50/50, and then also was the winner of three of the door prizes! I understand she is also very lucky with the Florida lottery scratch-off tickets. Bob Tobin was also in the winners circle he won two of the door prizes (wine and a new American flag). The final door prize, a bottle of wine, was won by Ron Gartman. This was the first time Helen had attended any of our dinners, but she says she is coming back! Did you see Pat Tobin in her hat? I think she has a hat for every holiday. There were many patriotic shirts worn by the men and women. The neighborhood was also decorated with many flags for the day. Its great to see so many flags flying from the houses, or placed in the yards.Drive wa y repair sThe QMRPOA board is waiting on the report from Geo Tech regarding the repairs needed/recomL ad i es L u nche o n mo v e d mended on the clubhouse driveway.

Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest Column The Court speaks: Now what happens?BY JIM FLYNN Everyone seems to have an opinion about the legal outcome of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, even though 99 percent of Americans havent read the 193 pages of the Supreme Court ruling. Were temporarily among the 99 percent, but well get to the ruling sometime soon. Until then, were adhering to the favorite opening line of humorist Will Rogers (1879-1935): All I know is what I just read in the papers. We Americans are fortunate that in addition to freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly the first amendment to the Constitution provides freedom of opinion. We have a right to petition the government to redress our grievances. Without reference to the Constitution, Congress infers a right to ignore our opinions and complaints between elections. Congress people can redress their grievances with the Supreme Court by getting re-elected. Back in power, the sponsors and supporters can administer the Affordable Care Act as they see fit. On the other side of the aisle, by getting elected or re-elected the opponents intend to repeal the Act, and substitute an alternative health care plan, which they say they are still working on. At the same time Congressional Republicans say theyre waiting until more specific plans evolve. Which is it, working or waiting? Perhaps the most important quote from Chief Justice John Roberts was about the court itself: It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Those decisions are entrusted to our nations elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. Was that a subtle suggestion? More important than the Supreme Courts decision will be the cost and effect of implementing the Act. When it was being considered by Congress, members confessed that they hadnt read all 2,400 pages. Acting as apologist for Congress, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi offered a quote for which she will be long remembered: We have to pass the bill so that you can understand whats in it. The most important aspect of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is that its an entitlement. Entitlements are forever. Government bureaucrats have trouble discontinuing entitlements for people who have deceased, and for some who never existed. Another problem with entitlements is the inability of federal actuaries to guess how much they will cost year after year. When Medicare began the guesstimate was it would cost $238 million the first year. Actual cost was $1 billion. Thats a thousand millions a quadruple error. More important than uncontrollable costs, the Affordable Care Act will be enshrined in history as Obamacare. It will be recognized as the keystone of President Obamas ambition to make America a social democracy. Patient Protection and Affordable Care will cap the arch of change which includes Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and a number of other social programs. On the campaign trail for re-election, Mr. Obama still refers to his 2008 campaign slogan Change we can believe in.

Dont worry, I looked up the spelling, because I didnt know it off the top of my head. Its the fear of the number 13. Why people are afraid of that number, I dont know, but you can be sure for people like that, this is one of those few bad weeks of the year. Its the week of Friday the 13th, and if you have Paraskevidekatriaphobia, then you are afraid of that date. Ive known companies and organizations that wouldnt schedule anything on that date. There have been buildings built in major cities that go from the 12th floor to the 14th floor, ignoring the number 13. There are many roots of the bad things that happen with 13, most of them disproven by serious study. It used to be that no athlete would wear the number 13, since it was considered bad luck. But guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Dan Marino wore it, and didnt do too badly, and currently Alex Rodriguez (Arod) of the New York Yankees is No. 13. Hes not too shabby a baseball player, either. Actually, its always been amazing to me how many people put their stock in superstitions. Fear of things like a black cat (my wife and I had one for years), walking under a ladder and breaking a mirror seem almost to border on devil worship. Things like that dont create bad luck usually, people create their own problems and like to have something else to blame it on. We run the horoscope in our newspapers, but my only use for it is for entertainment. I like to check my horoscope after the week has passed, just to see how silly the predictions in it were. Probably 99 times out of 100 they were wrong. If you take the horoscope seriously, well, try putting it aside for a month or two and see if it changes your life. I doubt if it will. So as you go through the latter part of this week, dont worry about walking under a ladder or petting a black cat. You might not want to break a mirror, though. That can get a little messy.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. He can be reached at editor@westmarionmessenger.com or at 352-854-3986. There are 13 paragraphs in this column. Quail Meadow The Ladies Luncheon on Friday, the 13th will be at noon at Ruby Tuesdays Restaurant not the Braised Onion. Make your reservations with Marion Gartman or Pat Tobin.Picnic a success The 4th of July picnic at the clubhouse was a great success. About 50 residents came together to celebrate this great holiday. The weather cooperated it looked like we were going to have a storm in the afternoon, but it just passed over us. The food, as always, was delicious! The decorated tables were very festive with the red, white, and blue. We appreciate the work of Theresa Yoders and the social committee for all the work to make each event successful. Ron Gartman provided corn on the cob, which he cooked on his corn cooker outside by the pool. The corn was super delicious. During the meal, we were entertained with patriotic music (on CDs). Everyone seemed to enjoy the fellowship, as well as the food. Helen Dougherty must be one of the luckiest people in the neighborhood! Can you believe she won the drawing for the 50/50, and then also was the winner of three of the door prizes! I understand she is also very lucky with the Florida lottery scratch-off tickets. Bob Tobin was also in the winners circle he won two of the door prizes (wine and a new American flag). The final door prize, a bottle of wine, was won by Ron Gartman. This was the first time Helen had attended any of our dinners, but she says she is coming back! Did you see Pat Tobin in her hat? I think she has a hat for every holiday. There were many patriotic shirts worn by the men and women. The neighborhood was also decorated with many flags for the day. Its great to see so many flags flying from the houses, or placed in the yards.Drive wa y repair sThe QMRPOA board is waiting on the report from Geo Tech regarding the repairs needed/recomL ad i es L u nche o n mo v e d mended on the clubhouse driveway.

Jumbo shells filled with a can of 3 or 4 bean salad, herbs and cheese make great finger food. Baby Beet and Farro Salad is an easy pack-and-go side. Whole pickled baby beets just right for one bite are the star of this whole grain salad, tossed with Dijon mustard dressing. Picnic Sandwiches with Pickled Beet-Mango Slaw, piled high with deli meats, goat cheese and a tangy-sweet slaw can be made ahead.

But a major work project looms and soon will demand much of your attention through the 23rd. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your enthusiasm persuades even the toughest doubters to listen to what youre proposing. But dont push too hard, or youll push them away. Moderate for best results.

BORN THIS WEEK: Your ambition makes you a success at whatever you choose to do especially if its in the world of the performing arts. 2012 King Features Synd., Inc. Leisure Not that there was really anything wrong with the pool or clubhouse, but it was nice to see some recent improvements that make things more appealing for summer activities especially around the pool area. Some upgrades to the pool and to the hot tub are much appreciated. More noticeable, however, is all the new pool furniture. The old furniture was not exactly on its last legs, but the new additions are definitely very nice. The colors are really attractive and the fact that the pieces are so much lighter than the previous furniture makes them more convenient to use. And one more thing the lounge chairs are much more comfortable for those of us who like to lie there in the sun next to the pool. Our clubhouse has a nice billiards room which sees lots of activity and a weight room that is very wellFairfield Village Fairfield Village spruces up community to make summer activities appealing equipped for a community no larger than ours. The exceptional library or media room provide lots of options for those who love to read or watch the latest films. The books are rotated often and the ones that have been available for a good while are donated to some worthy facilities. Even with all the heavy rain that our area experienced with Tropical Storm Debby, Fairfield Village did not have the flooding issues that many communities had. We are very grateful that someone many years ago seems to have planned intelligently for the always possible deluges that we can have here in Central Florida. Altogether it can be said that the facilities are more ready than ever for the upcoming social activities that many anticipate eagerly this time of year and on into the later summer and fall when our snow birds will be returning. I can say in a slightly different way than usual that our community is really looking lovely and those of us who stay here year round are as lively as any group of 55+ neighbors could be expected to be. Personally, I hope everyone is enjoying the summer as much as most of us here in Fairfield Village are enjoying ours. Priscilla Geissal The rocking chairs are placed on the shady porch so neighbors can relax and enjoy conversation. More photos, Page 4
