Francis Marion Military Academy presents the colors. On Nov. 29, eight Ocala Palms Residents traveled to the Florida National Guard Headquarters in St. Augustine. The purpose of the trip was for the Florida Military Family Assistance Fund to present to the Florida National Guard Foundation, a check in the amount of $34,600. This contribution was a result of monies raised from the fourth annual Veterans Day Charity Golf Tournament which was held on Nov. 10. This money goes into an Emergency Relief Fund dedicated for active duty soldiers and their families who are in financial need. The check was presented by John and Pat De Jesus to Major General Emmett Titshaw Jr., Adjutant General FNG, General James D. Tyre, Asst. Adjutant GeneralArmy FNG, and BG (Ret) Richard Capps, Pres. FNG Foundation. In attendance from the Florida Military Family Assistance Fund were: John DeJesus, President, Terry Sutton, Vice President, Pat De Jesus, Secretary/Treasurer and the following committee volunteers: Rene & Tom Hopkins, Peggy and Sam Maragioglio and Bob Ruddick. The support of residents from Ocala Palms was overwhelmingly appreciated by members of the Florida National Guard who were also present.

Iwill confess right up front to a certain degree of confusion. The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage will corroborate this confession. So many things confuse me; I am not sure where to begin, and once I begin, where in the world will it stop? I have been married for over 41 years but I must confess, not to the same woman. Oh yes, it is the same woman with the same name but it is not the same woman I married 41 years ago. Where is that young woman I married? When first married, I thought I knew everything there was to know about women and wives in particular. I do not know if it is the ensuing years but I am rather confused about this whole matter of being married. I suppose that is the mystery of romance. If you ever figure it out it loses its charm. Romance without charm is just an old man and an old woman who have lived together for 41 years. That is just one area of confusion. I harbor no aspiration of unconfusing my level of confusion in that area. There are other areas I could work on that might be a little more productive in this regard. An area particularly that has me greatly confused is the Christmas season with all the Christmas decorations including the ominous Christmas tree. Oh, how I love that old Christmas tree and decorating it and celebrating the whole Christmas spirit. What has been confusing me for the last several years is this uncertainty about the season. Some people do not want to call it the Christmas season; rather they refer to it as the holiday season. What I want to know is, what holiday are we celebrating in December? I know the holiday we celebrate in November, and the other holidays sprinkled throughout the year. In July, for example, nobody calls it a holiday parade.Ž It is the Fourth of July parade, for Petes sake! In February, nobody calls it a holiday banquet.Ž It is a Valentines banquet. Just so everybody knows, nobody will catch me singing a holiday carol.Ž I suppose with all the holidays in this country throughout the year it would be simpler just to call everything a holiday.Ž That would simplify things and help those who cannot keep up with the calendar. I am all for that. It seems the only squabbling that goes on is during the month of December. Actually, the squabbling begins before our turkey dinner has finished digesting. Maybe some people get too much turkey in their system and it clouds their thinking. All they have to do is squabble about something and so the only thing in front of them is the Christmas season. I get that. What I do not get is the level of anger directed in this direction. It would seem that the Christmas season offers a huge threat to our society. We cannot call our Christmas tree a Christmas tree; it has to be called a holiday tree. Everybody knows, the word Christmas treeŽ is some kind of code inviting disaster on our society. I have never heard anybody define or describe what that disaster would look like. What amazes me is simply that this is a huge issue in some peoples minds. Nothing is more dangerous to society than this. The word ChristmasŽ carries with it more danger to our society than the ominous financial cliff we are facing, the threat of terrorism in our own country and Lindsay Lohan at 4 a.m. What is more confusing to me is that these people who are trying to protect our society from anything religious wants to substitute the word holidayŽ for the word Christmas.Ž It just shows the level of education in our country has not kept up with the times. I know it has been a long time since I have been in school, but I do know that certain words have certain definitions. Do the people who object to anything religious understand that the word holiday comes from the phrase holy day?Ž I am not a PhD but I do know that the phrase holy dayŽ has religious roots. So, I am really confused along this line. On the one hand, we are not to use the word ChristmasŽ because of its religious connotations. At the same time, we are supposed to use the word holidayŽ which in every dictionary in the land means holy day.Ž I could be corrected along this line, but in my thinking the phrase, holy dayŽ has some very distinct religious roots. When I hear somebody complaining along this line, and they do it so vehemently, I have a question as to their sanity. It does not make sense to me. Christmas is a holy day but we are not allowed to think of it as a holy day just use the term holiday.Ž Now I am really confused. Is it a holiday or a holy day? Is it sacred or is it secular? What holiday does a holiday tree really celebrate? I like what the apostle Paul wrote, Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath daysŽ (Colossians 2:16 KJV). I will not allow any mans objections affect my celebration of the Christmasseason. To quote from a great secular classic, God bless us, everyone.ŽRev. James L.

Ocala Health has announced that the Florida Department of Health, Office of Trauma, has approved their application for Provisional Level II Trauma Center designation at Ocala Regional Medical Center. This designation provides Trauma Service Area (TSA) 6, composed of Marion, Hernando, and Citrus counties, with its first and only trauma center. Ocala Regional Medical Center began receiving all patients who meet trauma alert criteria as put forth by the State of Florida, as of 7 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 8. This designation means we can now provide residents of Marion and surrounding counties with trauma care in their own community and ensure that critically injured patients have access to treatment faster, which could mean the difference between life and death,Ž explains Randy McVay, Chief Executive Officer, Ocala Health. We are proud to be able to meet a true community need for easier access to comprehensive trauma care when minutes matter.Ž The golden hour refers to a time period lasting from a few minutes to several hours following traumatic injury, during which there is the highest likelihood that prompt medical treatment will help to decrease death and disability. Prior to Ocala Regional gaining provisional status, EMS and first responder teams were required to transport patients to facilities outside TSA 6 to centers in Gainesville and Tampa. The development of a trauma program was a natural next step in the evolution of Ocala Regional Medical Center and is a very proud milestone for Ocala Health. More than $6.5 million has already been invested in developing the program, which is part of the USF/HCA Trauma Network. Community hospitals like Ocala Regional are able to meet local needs for trauma services through affiliations with major academic universities and medical schools. Ocala Regional Medical Center joins five other hospitals in the USF/HCA Trauma Network, which was created to complement the States existing trauma system, and to provide better access to those citizens living in currently underserved areas,Ž said James M. Hurst, MD, FACS, Professor of Surgery, USF, and USF/HCA Trauma Network Medical Director. We look forward to working with Ocala Health to improve access to trauma care throughout Marion, Hernando and Citrus Counties.Ž Darwin Noel Ang, MD, PhD, FACS, Medical Director of Trauma Services at Ocala Regional Medical Center, is also the Director of the USF/HCA Trauma Research and Analysis Center. This Center combines the resources of Morsani College of Medicine, USFs School of Public Health and the USF/HCA Trauma Network in quality and outcomes research. For the last nine months, Ocala Health leadership and staff have been working on several fronts to prepare to care for the communitys most critically injured patients. Significant efforts included construction of a rooftop helipad and resuscitation rooms in the Emergency Department, critical care training for staff at all levels of patient care, and the addition of more than 40 new staff members and 15 specialists. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, December 12, 2012 3 000DAVM Boarding Grooming Look for us Look for us $ 99 00 000DEGX J a s m i n e P l a z a € 3 5 2 4 0 1 0 0 0 1 Jasmine Plaza € 352-401-0001 6 1 6 0 S W S R 2 0 0 U n i t 1 0 4 € O c a l a F l o r i d a 3 4 4 7 6 6160 SW SR 200 Unit 104 € Ocala, Florida 34476 H O L I D A Y H O U R S : M O N F R I 1 0 5 € S A T 1 0 2 HOLIDAY HOURS: MON.-FRI. 10-5 € SAT. 10-2 Readers Choice Winner € Jewelry Store 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 www.jandjjewelersocala.com All repairs done on premises.

6 Wednesday, December 12, 2012 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Federal Government Insurance Code #104, #105, Quail Meadow decorates clubhouse for holidays About 25 residents turned out last week to decorate the clubhouse for the holidays. It was unbelievable how quickly the men put the tree together. In past years it has taken much longer to complete this task. After the tree was assembled, the women all joined in to add the ornaments and other decorations. Santa must have come early because there were new decorations that no one knew about. If you havent seen the inside of the clubhouse, make an effort to do so this month. While the music was playing and everyone was enjoying hot chocolate, eggnog, and cookies, Santa arrived! It was like being a child again, sitting with Santa and having a picture taken. Our thanks go to everyone who helped make this a successful night; especially to Santa for visiting, and Marion Gartman for taking the pictures. Have you noticed the lighted sign in front of the clubhouse? We can now see the reminders of upcoming events. This is something that has been discussed for a long time and finally action was taken. We can thank Bobby Dempsey, Bob Tobin, Earle Talley, and Ron Gartman for their expertise in wiring the sign and putting it all together. What better and safer way to spend New Years Eve than with friends and neighbors at the clubhouse. The festivities will begin at 9 p.m. Tickets (for $1 donation) are available from Lil Carie. If you need to get in the Christmas spirit, drive by Earle and Pat Talleys home. Earle has outdone himself this year with the lights and music.

8 Wednesday, December 12, 2012 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger West Marion Messenger 8810 W. State Road 200, suite 104, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Among Friends Flyover (or bridge) has its grand opening Protect your valuables and yourself We dont like to keep harping on anything, but we are constantly hearing about new scams that are meant to separate residents of Marion County from their money. Add to that the danger of theft during the holidays, and it can be an unsafe time for many. So we are going to repeat what should be some common sense rules. 1. Never give out personal information over the phone unless you initiated the call. You never know, despite what the other caller might say, who you are talking to and what is going to be done with your information. Something as innocuous as your date of birth can open the door for all sorts of con artists and identity thieves. 2. Never let a stranger into your home if you didnt initiate the contact. Providing access to some people is like saying, Here, rob me.Ž 3. If you hire someone to do work on the inside of your home, never let them out of your sight. Things can disappear quickly and quietly if youre not careful. Something as simple as letting an outdoor worker in to use the restroom can provide him access to things you might not want him to have. If you do allow this, make sure you watch to see that he doesnt go to any other room in the house. 4. When you are shopping, protect your purse and/or wallet at all times. Sometimes it might be better to carry just your keys, driver license and credit or debit card. 5. When using your debit card, make sure no one is looking when you punch in your PIN. And never leave the register until youre sure the transaction has completely cleared so the person behind you has to start over. 6. If youre shopping in more than one store, dont leave items visible in your car where people can see whats in there. It only takes seconds for a smash and grab.Ž 7. When your car is left outside all night, make sure its locked and you have the keys. And dont leave a key in a secretŽ place on your car. Burglars all know where to look first. So just follow common sense during the next couple of weeks, and youll have a much merrier Christmas than if you dont. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest Column Rebuild: Outside in or inside out?BY JIM FLYNN When he was in a mood to expand his empire, Napoleon Bonaparte derogated the British, as a nation of shopkeepers, unfit for a war against France. The Little Corporal,Ž as he was known, did not create the shopkeeper snub. He borrowed it. Napoleon was quoting British economist Adam Smith, who said in his famous book Wealth of NationsŽ that to found a great empire for the sole purpose of raising a nation of customers is a project fit only for a country run by shopkeepers. Smith had borrowed the snarky comment from Samuel Adams, a founding father of the United States. Currently we hear chatter from both sides of the political aisle about encouraging small and medium businesses to produce more jobs, generate more tax revenue, and revitalize the middle class. Sounds good, but how? President Obamas vision is rebuilding the national economy from the middle class out by making more government investments in education, infrastructure, and home grown clean energy. If we lead the world in college graduates by 2020, as the president envisions, will the new middle class be made up of school teachers, construction workers, and renewable energy technicians, all of whom will have college degrees and be indirect employees of the federal government? Mr. Obamas version of Economics 101 is predicated on a theory that the middle class can grow the economy, create jobs into the foreseeable future, and reduce government deficits. As always the middle class would have to contribute considerable tax revenue to finance government investment spending. There is no free ride for workers. When we hear about the presidents ambitious vision, we imagine a nation of shop owners, strip malls, and production of energy in the same way we make maple syrup from indigenous trees. As they say in baseball, thats small ball … singles and bunts. Small ball may be all we can expect for the foreseeable future. Small businesses hire few employees. Five or ten hires in every new business across the nation will not create a spending boom. Despite the vagueness of the presidents visions, we make no endorsement of the old ideas offered by Republicans. As economist Robert Samuelson has observed, their economic ideas are broken models. World demand for U.S. exports is unlikely to grow in the current economy. Even once booming China is having economic difficulties. Were in a worldwide recession, and it isnt going away. During the Bush administration, with the help of a few congressional Democrats, the administration played deaf and dumb for eight years, while mortgage banking was turned into a racket and financial markets were creating make-believe paper money products. The whole economic system was a broken model. Business investment spending, which generates the most economic growth, isnt going to happen until they see more customer demand and less government regulation on the horizon. In the meanwhile, Democrats believe government should spend more to stimulate demand, and Republicans insist business would invest if government would get off their backs. Our guess is the White House visionary will have his way. Reader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

Jim Clark Editor Those who remember Howard Cosell, the brash sports announcer on television years ago, will recall that one of his favorite sayings was Tell it like it is.Ž He pushed using plain language to describe what was going on, not any fancy words that might tend to hide the truth. No one is suggesting anything sinister here, but I will admit I never heard of the word flyoverŽ with regards to a bridge until I started covering the news here. Every other place Ive been, its been called a bridgeŽ or an overpass.Ž A flyover was something that planes do at veteran ceremonies. But regardless, I felt a real sense of accomplishment as I attended the ribboncutting and opening of the new 42nd Street Flyover last Thursday at the east side of the bridge. I had followed this project since its inception, with the groundbreaking just a little over a year ago, and I marveled at how well the contractor did the job ahead of schedule. But most of all, I was glad to see something that will make travel from west to east in Ocala just a little bit easier. I have to admit, that when the concept was first announced, I didnt think Id still be around when it was finished. But this was the final link connecting State Road 200 with Maricamp Road (also known as State Road 464 in some spots and County Road 464 in others). Im still a little shaky on how traffic will be affected on State Road 200 where the roads intersect. With estimates of 22,000 vehicles a day on the bridge, its reasonable to assume that 11,000 of them will be going west and feeding into the highway. Hows that going to work? Well just wait and see. I walked up to the bridge from my parking spot with Father Patrick Sheedy, pastor of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church and, by extension, Trinity Catholic High School. He pointed out how much easier it would be for the students to come from the west, but he added that they would have to be careful on the road. One of the speakers mentioned that the new road, dubbed Osceola Boulevard, would ease traffic on State Road 200 and the 17th Street corridor. For drivers thats good, but what about the merchants. The stores in the mall, across the road from the mall, and all along 17th Street are going to get thousands fewer cars passing their doors every day. That could really hamper walk-in traffic. The next thing to watch is whats going to happen on 42nd Street just east of the Interstate. Right now, on the south side of the road, theres a whole lot of nothing, and on the north side, once you get west of Hawthorne Village, theres also a lot of vacant land. Presumably, this could become prime commercial sites (theres already a for saleŽ sign on one commercial plot of land), and heres hoping the county and city make sure that there is discipline in permitting the developments (maybe even service roads) as this area grows. For now, though, its a great wide open road, with few traffic lights, side streets and no stop signs. So if you have to go cross-county, use it and enjoy. Just remember, the speed limit is 40, all the way.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

On Thursday, Dec. 6, what was called a town hall meetingŽ was held in the Fairfield Village Clubhouse. Conducted by ALL Regional Manager, Sherry Woodworth along with Rachel Muse, new manager of FFV, the meeting covered a number of pertinent topics of concern to Fairfield Villagers. Before the meeting with neighbors, there was a meeting with the two managers and FFVs HOA. This was reported to be very productive and worthwhile. The supportive rapport between the HOA and the two managers is recognized as being a good sign for continuing good working relationships for the community. Sherry Woodworth began the discussion with an explanation of the Good Neighbor Policy that is an important part of the ALL approach. She told those present that there are many ways that management and residents can benefit each other. She mentioned, in particular, ALLs desire to help when residents might want to updateŽ their homes. Other topics discussed included the need for a new outside light at one of the Clubhouse entrances, continuing concerns about those who do not adhere to the posted neighborhood speed limit, a question about why the decorations that were said to have been at the entrances to the community are not there, and why property tax notices did not have information about last year. Ms. Woodworth graciously provided answers to all the questions to the satisfaction of most present. Norma Powers, of the HOA and SAC, commented that the new management group, ALL, is very cooperative and supportive of social activities and that she was in hopes that there would be increased participation in planned activities as people recognize this good relationship and support. Both Ms. Woodworth and Ms. Muse encouraged those present to help to bring in friends and neighbors to activities sponsored by the Social Activities Committee and/or the HOA. Both ladies pointed out that living in a 55+ community can be very stimulating and fun when lots of activities are planned and people become enthusiastic about some favorite interests. Recognizing that our community does have lots of very interesting and active people, Woodworth pointed out that we have the basis for many more worthwhile things to do in the coming weeks and months. Woodworth assured all those at the meeting that Rachel Muse has some good ideas and will be continuing many of the activities initiated by Peggy Sluss. In addition, she will work toward even more events to include the neighbors of FFV ƒ a lively place filled with lovely people.Ž VOLUME 6, NUMBER 37 WEDNESDAY, December 12, 2012 12 Wednesday, December 12, 2012 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 000DEB7 000DA33 VILLAGES COMPUTER & REPAIR (352) 237-4852 email: villagescomputer@yahoo.com Next to the neighborhood Storage on SR200 across from the Jasmine Plaza € Computer Repair € Custom Building € Computer Classes € Free Diagnostics € Data Recovery € Networking In Store Service or at Your Location FREE Service Calls to your house or business with this ad 7256 SW 62nd Ave., Suite 5, Ocala, FL 34476 000DC71 7201 SW Hwy. 200 € Ocala € (352) 629-0900 € (4 miles west of I-75, just before Lowes) (4 miles west of I-75, just before Lowes) (352) 629-0900 Other locations throughout the southeast 7201 SW Hwy. 200 € Ocala GREAT FINANCING ON EZ-GO CARTS!
