Column and more photos on Page 7. In its 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook issued May 23, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center is forecasting an active or extremely active season this year. For the six-month hurricane season, which begins June 1, NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted, everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time. said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. As we saw first-hand with Sandy, its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall. Three climate factors that strongly control Atlantic hurricane activity are expected to come together to produce an active or extremely active 2013 hurricane season. These are: Stormy summer predicted Please see HURRICANES Page 10 Readers of all ages will explore the magic and mysteries of the underground this summer as the Marion County Public Library System presents its Dig into Reading summer reading program from June 10-July 26 at its eight public library locations.

To putt, or not to putt, thats the question. Hopefully, we can get away from golf controversy, and get back to other things, like whether drones should be flying over the U.S. Come to think of it, I wonder if those drones could be used to spy on golfers, to see if anyone is sneaking around with a belly putter. For me, Ill stick with miniature golf. I wonder if any of those courses will let me use an anchored putter to get the ball through the windmill. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. GOLFcontinued from Page 8 vestigation about a leak of classified information. Of course the White House knew nothing about the matter, except what it heard in news reports. Handling of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP embarrassments by the White House confirm Mary Matalins and James Carvilles book title Alls Fair In Love, War, and Running for President, particularly when the elected president never stops campaigning. Responses from Congress are expectable blow-back to persistent political pretzel baking at the White House. As George Orwell said In our age all issues are political and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.

LIBRARYcontinued from Page 1 Emerald Shores Elementary. In 2005, she moved to Staff Development at the district level. Three years later, she transferred to assistant principal at Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks and in 2010 moved to her current position at Marion Oaks Elementary. She earned her Bachelor of Art in elementary education from Our Lady of the Elms College. Her two Master of Education degrees in curriculum and instruction and educational leadership come from the University of Cincinnati and the University of Texas, respectively. In addition to these four appointments, Superintendent Tomyn previously announced 12 other schools with new leaders this summer including: Belleview High Mike Kelly Emerald Shores John Williams Fessenden Isaac Burgess Lake Weir High Wayne Livingston Lake Weir Middle Stephanie Callaway Legacy Elementary (new school) Dawn Prestipino Maplewood Laura Burgess Marion Oaks Elementary Gary Smallridge MTI Jim Wohrley North Marion High Cindy Saunders Sparr Elementary Patricia Hornsby Ward-Highlands Melissa Kinard PRINCIPALScontinued from Page 1 F airfield Villages rather extensive library owes much to its Library Committee members for keeping it so vital up to the present time. Many people have been a part of that group and they are to be thanked for their dedication and hard work. The new committee made up of Kerry Breedon, Jean Fernandez, Frann Glenney, Carol Ouellette, Ann Bruno, Ginie Keller, and Joan Koehler are planning some new enticements to keep up the already serious interest in wide collection of books available. One of the new projects will involve an Author of the Month. This will feature a display of that authors works and information about the persons life and career. It is believed that this will be of interest to those who frequent the library on a regular basis and possibly will draw interest from others who usually just read from their own personal libraries. Another focus of interest in FFVs library involves the photographic works captured by our own extremely talented Jim LePage. There are always several of Jims fantastic shots in the library and these are rotated on a regular basis. One would believe that Jim is a professional photographer, but he insists that photography is just a hobby that he truly loves since he first started taking pictures in 1985. He prefers wildlife especially birdsand any kind of plant or flower. His works rival most seen in local craft and art shows. Fairfield Village really appreciates the fact that Jim loans these beautiful works to be displayed in the library. In the accompanying photo, Jim is seen as he brings in a new photo to share. With him are Kerry Breedon and Jean Fernandez who expressed appreciation for LePages contributions to the library. I asked several of the committee members why they enjoy working with the library. Ann Bruno said, Im an avid reader so I have enjoyed our library as long as I have lived here. Ginie Keller remarked along the same line, We have such a nice selection of books, and I have always loved to read. Fairfield library building interest Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal Carol Ouellette mentioned, the wide variety of authors, while Jean Fernandez added, I like so many different authors, I couldnt begin to get them all. Along the same line, Frann Glenney mentioned how much she enjoys James Pattersons books and how glad she is that the library has such a large collection of them. Joan Koehler brought up another point that the library is really a very pretty place and that she feels very comfortable there. Additionally, there are some plans being made to update the computer in the library so that it will be available for use by those who have the need or desire to do so. Fairfield Village is very fortunate to have this exceptional group of people who are willing to work to keep our library up to date and inviting for our neighbors to visit and use. It is very obvious that their plans and efforts will add immeasurably to the amenities enjoyed by the neighbors here in Fairfield Village, a lively place filled with lovely people. Jim LePage, left, is seen as he shows one of his latest photos to Kerry Breedon and Jean Fernandez of the FFV Library Committee. Both expressed delight with the new addition.

A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; Warmer-thanaverage water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and El Nio is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center. New for this hurricane season are improvements to forecast models, data gathering, and the National Hurricane Center communication procedure for post-tropical cyclones. In July, NOAA plans to bring online a new supercomputer that will run an upgraded Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model that provides significantly enhanced depiction of storm structure and improved storm intensity forecast guidance. Also this year, Doppler radar data will be transmitted in real time from NOAAs Hurricane Hunter aircraft. This will help forecasters better analyze rapidly evolving storm conditions, and these data could further improve the HWRF model forecasts by 10 to 15 percent. The National Weather Service has also made changes to allow for hurricane warnings to remain in effect, or to be newly issued, for storms like Sandy that have become post-tropical. This flexibility allows forecasters to provide a continuous flow of forecast and warning information for evolving or continuing threats. The start of hurricane season is a reminder that our families, businesses and communities need to be ready for the next big storm, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Preparedness today can make a big difference down the line, so update your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked. Learn more about how you can prepare for hurricane season at www.ready.gov/hurricanes. This is National Hurricane Preparedness Week. To help those living in hurricane-prone areas prepare, NOAA is offering hurricane preparedness tips, along with video and audio public service announcements in both English and Spanish, featuring NOAA hurricane experts and the FEMA administrator at www.nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, May 29, 2013 3 10Wednesday, May 29, 2013 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger GARAGE SCREEN DOORS 465-4629 Call us today for a free estimate! $ 7 9 5 $ 7 9 5 $ 795 CRC058138 St art i ng at OPTIONAL SCREEN CHOICES.

This article was asking for help to close a budgetary gap which would impact Meals on Wheels, respite care givers, and the daily communal dining program. Sarah Stroh, director of Marion Senior Services, said that if a fraction of our county each gave a single dollar, the gap would be bridged. The gap was caused by the federal governments sequester. That article galvanized Andrea, a warm-hearted, caring former nurse, into action. She called the article to the attention of her friends who responded swiftly. Individuals, small social groups, and organized clubs within On Top of the World banded together. On Monday, May 13, the mens golfing groups were told the story by Archie Pollard and Bill Flannery. The men agreed to chip in a few dollars each day. By the end of the week, they had collected $222. Luz Leon, another caring person, was contacted and as acting Treasurer of the Looper Ladies Group and the President of the Caribbean Club she submitted this request and called for a majority vote toward this much needed cause. Each organization was moved by the plight of our less-fortunate contemporaries and generously agreed to donate a check from each treasury. Andrea continued to spread the word, with the assistance of Nancy Grabowski. Bunco players and Mah Jongg players agreed to pitch in. Individuals contributed. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the collection began to grow and grow. There were a few, admittedly, who thought these efforts wouldnt make a difference. They were proved wrong when the final tally was complete, this small circle of friends raised $660, which was be presented on Thursday, May 23. Stroh accepted the donation in the multi-purpose room at the Senior Services building, and told the people attending that some cuts still might have to be made. The story doesnt end here. More help is needed. Contributions can be mailed directly to: Marion Senior Services, 1101 SW 20th Court, Ocala FL 34471. You can also call Nancy Grabowski at 873-4315 for more information. Senior Services trying to fill funding gap Commentary BY JEFF JOHNSON Special to the Messenger The 2013 legislative session was a disappointment for Floridians age 50+ on health-care expansion and reform of the assisted-living industry. But lawmakers made positive steps by correcting mistakes in election law and banning texting while driving. Some of the Legislatures shortfalls on issues important to Floridians 50+ included: Failing to expand Medicaid coverage to more than 1 million uninsured Floridians of modest means. The House of Representatives failed to expand health coverage to more than 1 million uninsured Floridians, including as many as 260,000 Floridians age 50 to 64. Under federal law, Floridians could have gotten $51 billion worth of federal aid to expand health coverage under the Medicaid program. Instead, the House refused to accept federal funding for health-care expansion. For the second year in a row, legislative leaders failed to deliver legislation reforming oversight of the assisted-living industry. However, the 2013 session did produce some gains for older Floridians. Lawmakers corrected some of the past mistakes in election law by expanding the number of early-voting days and hours and limiting overly long ballot language in constitutional amendments proposed by lawmakers. AARP State President Jeff Johnson urged Gov. Rick Scott to sign into law a texting-while-driving ban, saying it was a good first step on an issue important to older voters. AARP and a broad coalition of groups have fought for the ban this year. Some 93 percent of Florida voters 50+ favored the ban. The state budget includes additional funding for 2,611 frail Floridians to receive services that can help them remain in their homes and communities rather than in institutional care. However, even with the additional funding, the number of seniors on waiting lists to receive homeand community-based services is nearly equal to the numbers of persons receiving those services. Lawmakers rejected harmful legislation that would have further restricted lawsuits by nursing home residents against nursing homes where frail residents suffer abuse or neglect. Jeff Johnson is AARP Floridas state director. 2013 Legislature disappointing for older Floridians PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELPaso Fino horses at Blueberry Festival A Blueberry Festival took place Saturday, May 18, at the Equestrian Complex on Southwest 60th Avenue. Shown are some Paso Fino horses entertaining the crowd. I have concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates this is fishing. When I was younger, I loved to fish. The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an Apple Fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. And I thought I was confused The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged Apple Fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family. For additional recipes and informa tion, visit www.kikkomanUSA.com.Natural,Quality Ingredients MaketheMeal Brining 101 What exactly is brining? Much like a marinade, meat and poultry is soaked in flavorful liquid, such as an all-purpose seasoning like Kikkoman Soy Sauce. This adds a tremendous amount of flavor and also breaks down proteins, thus, tenderizing the meat or poultry. The only real rule to brining is that the meat must be kept cold throughout the entire pro cess.Usealargecontainer,cooler or brining bag that can fit into a refrigerator because the protein and brine solution has to be kept below 40 degrees at all times.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Bad weather A nother week, another tragedy to discuss. This time it was in Moore, Oklahoma, where a powerful tornado flattened a milewide path through the town. Moore is just outside Oklahoma City, and is the home of country singer Toby Keith, who is on the ground helping, and of New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who was pulled out of batting practice the day of the storm and told to take time to contact his family. Relatives of both men are safe. Probably the biggest talking point has been safe rooms and storm cellars, particularly where it involves the two elementary schools in the path. An older school was damaged and a number of children injured or killed. Students did what many of us were taught, to go into the hall away from windows, but many then ended up in bathrooms huddled together. One of the more touching stories was that of a teacher who was in a bathroom stall covering four little boys. She said one of the boys asked if they were going to die, and she told him she would protect him, which she did. Then she did something as a teacher youre probably not supposed to do I prayed out loud. TV networks and other journalists descended upon the area, wringing their hands and discussing how terrible it was while promoting special shows that undoubtedly would help ratings. The local TV reporters who we heard initially got emotional, because they were talking about their own friends and relatives. Some may not consider that professional, but it was real, compelling television. The newer school had a safe area built into the school, and students reportedly escaped harm. In the area, few homes have basements because the soil makes them susceptible to flooding. But after two other tornadoes in the past 15 years, many people built storm shelters in their back yards and were able to make use of them for themselves and neighbors. Were heading into hurricane season here in Florida, but as many have pointed out, at least with a hurricane you have many days notice that its coming. Not so about tornadoes, which can pop up anytime theres a severe weather threat. But with the hurricane season due, its time to remember that everyone can be a victim of severe weather. Make sure youre prepared. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest column This too shall pass, but not any time soonBY JIM FLYNN Our government started bending the truth when it was still a collection of colonies. History teaches that the primary cause of the American Revolution was taxation without representation. There were other issues. The Boston tea party was an uprising against a tax on ship cargo, but its little known that some of the tea-partiers were among the smugglers who supplied 90 percent of the tea being consumed at the time. The British East India Company, which had a tea monopoly, did not appreciate the competition. The colonies had no representatives in the British parliament, and they had to suffer autocratic governors, some of whom were corrupt. Another reason for wanting independence was the colonists unspoken desires to control importation of slaves, and to subjugate and impress native Indians. Explanations of many other events have come under suspicion. In January 1898, our battleship USS Maine entered Havana harbor to protect American business interests during a Cuban revolt against the Spanish government. A few days later the Maine sank when its gunpowder magazines exploded, killing most of the crew. Washington blamed a Spanish mine, and a few months later the U.S. was at war with Spain. The captain of the Maine insisted the sinking was caused by a coal bin explosion. After the war the Maine was raised, and the captains report was confirmed. Similar fact-bending was President Lyndon Johnsons insistence that a torpedo attack in the Gulf of Tonkin justified escalating the Vietnam War. Mr. Johnson relied on a report from an inexperienced sonar operator that there were torpedoes, which was doubtful. The president heard what he wanted to hear, a common audiology malfunction at the White House. The current conflict between the White House and Congress over killings of four Americans in the attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, is similar to President Johnsons use of selective information. The Obama White House decided Benghazi would play better as a spontaneous uproar over an anti-Islam movie than an organized terrorist attack at least until after the presidential election. So the nation was told what the White House wanted to hear. More of the same is news that the IRS was over diligent in examining nonprofit-status applications by Tea Party organizations. President Obama relies on the Sgt. Schultz defense (from TVs Hogans Heroes): I knew nothing! IRS management claims to have been similarly uninformed. They also heard only what they wanted to hear. In the third recent matter with an odor of truth bending, the Justice Department at first chose to say nothing about tapping phone lines of the Associated Press. As disclosure blossomed, Justice said the matter is a criminal inReader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

H ere we are with all these major debates going on in our country and around the world about things such as the IRS, Benghazi and the First Amendment. But here comes another mess, and this time its one that a lot of people living here in southwest Ocala wont be able to escape. Its all about golf. Thats right, golf. Some people would say its about time that we got our priorities in order and started talking about something really important. Of course, for me thats not the case. I played one round of golf my entire life, and shot a 103. Oh, did I tell you it was a 9-hole course? My dad was trying to teach me on what he called a simple course in Mystic Islands, New Jersey. I decided that if that was simple, well, I wasnt going to waste my time. But back to the controversy. The old fuddy-duddies, particularly in Scotland, who make the rules of golf, have made a decision. Anchored putting will not be allowed after Jan. 1, 2016. What is anchored putting, you say? Well, if youve watched any golf on television, youve undoubtedly seen golfers with these putters that have an extra long handle. Instead of standing sideways, they face their target, balance the putter against their body, and putt straight ahead. It reminds me of a game we used to play in our backyard called croquet. You held the mallet, swung it between your legs as you faced the target, and hit the ball. Some uncouth golf analysts call it a belly putter, but we all know the royal whatevers in Scotland prefer anchored putting. Heres the big part of the controversy. Now here comes a real controversy Among Friends Jim Clark When the folks in Scotland, joined by the United States Golf Association (USGA), made this announcement, the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) and the golfers themselves failed to endorse the change, leading to speculation that the putters might not be outlawed on the PGA Tour. Heavens, whats the world coming to? A dispute in the ranks of the great game where the fans can get a player disqualified by calling in? It makes Sergios racial comment about Tiger Woods seem mild. It could create all sorts of problems. What if a club pro, who belongs to the PGA, is running a tournament sanctioned by the USGA? Will he disqualify people who use a belly putter? Whose rules will he follow? Golfers who play in the U.S. routinely go to Europe to compete in tournaments, most notably the upcoming British Open, which the folks in Scotland call The Open, as if there were no other. This is part of the PGA Tour. So what rules would be followed? And then there are the poor local golfers. Most of them, I presume, use a regular old-fashioned putter. But if there are any using the long-handled version, will they be ostracized by their local groups? Please see FLYNN Page 11 Please see GOLF Page 11

Charo even had a Congo line with the audience forming the line. Marilyn Monroe paid special tribute to Quail Meadow resident Billy Cooper, who was celebrating his birthday; she sang Happy Birthday as only Marilyn could do it.

The mutual support has remained strong all 25 years. Back in 1987, LifeSouth was known as Civitan Regional Blood Center and had one small store-front donor center, a few blocks east of the current location, and one bloodmobile to serve the county. Today it has a modern center in Ocala, a branch location in Dunnellon and two bloodmobiles to serve the county, which has grown in population by nearly 80 percent in the two-plus decades. LifeSouths Marion County donors support patients at the Malcom Randall V. A. Medical Center and Shands at UF. In 2012 more than 32,000 Marion County residents received care at the hospitals. LifeSouth also recently signed an agreement with Ocala Regional Medical Center to supplement that hospitals blood supply, when needed. Coleman said LifeSouth needs more than 250 donors each week to meet local needs. Weve been able to succeed here because of the support of the community and the many, many donors who every day decide to give blood, said Coleman. There will be a ribbon-cutting to mark the anniverLifeSouth, Chamber mark 25 years sary, hors doeuvres and soft drinks, and a chance for visitors to meet and talk with LifeSouth staff.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family. For additional recipes and informa tion, visit www.kikkomanUSA.com.Natural,Quality Ingredients MaketheMeal Brining 101 What exactly is brining? Much like a marinade, meat and poultry is soaked in flavorful liquid, such as an all-purpose seasoning like Kikkoman Soy Sauce. This adds a tremendous amount of flavor and also breaks down proteins, thus, tenderizing the meat or poultry. The only real rule to brining is that the meat must be kept cold throughout the entire pro cess.Usealargecontainer,cooler or brining bag that can fit into a refrigerator because the protein and brine solution has to be kept below 40 degrees at all times.

Bake meatballs at 350F on ungreased cookie sheet for 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, heat deep skillet, add oil, 1 clove garlic and onions and saut for about 5 minutes until onions are soft. Add tomatoes and remaining garlic, cheese and oregano; simmer for at least 20 minutes.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Bad weather A nother week, another tragedy to discuss. This time it was in Moore, Oklahoma, where a powerful tornado flattened a milewide path through the town. Moore is just outside Oklahoma City, and is the home of country singer Toby Keith, who is on the ground helping, and of New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who was pulled out of batting practice the day of the storm and told to take time to contact his family. Relatives of both men are safe. Probably the biggest talking point has been safe rooms and storm cellars, particularly where it involves the two elementary schools in the path. An older school was damaged and a number of children injured or killed. Students did what many of us were taught, to go into the hall away from windows, but many then ended up in bathrooms huddled together. One of the more touching stories was that of a teacher who was in a bathroom stall covering four little boys. She said one of the boys asked if they were going to die, and she told him she would protect him, which she did. Then she did something as a teacher youre probably not supposed to do I prayed out loud. TV networks and other journalists descended upon the area, wringing their hands and discussing how terrible it was while promoting special shows that undoubtedly would help ratings. The local TV reporters who we heard initially got emotional, because they were talking about their own friends and relatives. Some may not consider that professional, but it was real, compelling television. The newer school had a safe area built into the school, and students reportedly escaped harm. In the area, few homes have basements because the soil makes them susceptible to flooding. But after two other tornadoes in the past 15 years, many people built storm shelters in their back yards and were able to make use of them for themselves and neighbors. Were heading into hurricane season here in Florida, but as many have pointed out, at least with a hurricane you have many days notice that its coming. Not so about tornadoes, which can pop up anytime theres a severe weather threat. But with the hurricane season due, its time to remember that everyone can be a victim of severe weather. Make sure youre prepared. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest column This too shall pass, but not any time soonBY JIM FLYNN Our government started bending the truth when it was still a collection of colonies. History teaches that the primary cause of the American Revolution was taxation without representation. There were other issues. The Boston tea party was an uprising against a tax on ship cargo, but its little known that some of the tea-partiers were among the smugglers who supplied 90 percent of the tea being consumed at the time. The British East India Company, which had a tea monopoly, did not appreciate the competition. The colonies had no representatives in the British parliament, and they had to suffer autocratic governors, some of whom were corrupt. Another reason for wanting independence was the colonists unspoken desires to control importation of slaves, and to subjugate and impress native Indians. Explanations of many other events have come under suspicion. In January 1898, our battleship USS Maine entered Havana harbor to protect American business interests during a Cuban revolt against the Spanish government. A few days later the Maine sank when its gunpowder magazines exploded, killing most of the crew. Washington blamed a Spanish mine, and a few months later the U.S. was at war with Spain. The captain of the Maine insisted the sinking was caused by a coal bin explosion. After the war the Maine was raised, and the captains report was confirmed. Similar fact-bending was President Lyndon Johnsons insistence that a torpedo attack in the Gulf of Tonkin justified escalating the Vietnam War. Mr. Johnson relied on a report from an inexperienced sonar operator that there were torpedoes, which was doubtful. The president heard what he wanted to hear, a common audiology malfunction at the White House. The current conflict between the White House and Congress over killings of four Americans in the attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, is similar to President Johnsons use of selective information. The Obama White House decided Benghazi would play better as a spontaneous uproar over an anti-Islam movie than an organized terrorist attack at least until after the presidential election. So the nation was told what the White House wanted to hear. More of the same is news that the IRS was over diligent in examining nonprofit-status applications by Tea Party organizations. President Obama relies on the Sgt. Schultz defense (from TVs Hogans Heroes): I knew nothing! IRS management claims to have been similarly uninformed. They also heard only what they wanted to hear. In the third recent matter with an odor of truth bending, the Justice Department at first chose to say nothing about tapping phone lines of the Associated Press. As disclosure blossomed, Justice said the matter is a criminal inReader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

H ere we are with all these major debates going on in our country and around the world about things such as the IRS, Benghazi and the First Amendment. But here comes another mess, and this time its one that a lot of people living here in southwest Ocala wont be able to escape. Its all about golf. Thats right, golf. Some people would say its about time that we got our priorities in order and started talking about something really important. Of course, for me thats not the case. I played one round of golf my entire life, and shot a 103. Oh, did I tell you it was a 9-hole course? My dad was trying to teach me on what he called a simple course in Mystic Islands, New Jersey. I decided that if that was simple, well, I wasnt going to waste my time. But back to the controversy. The old fuddy-duddies, particularly in Scotland, who make the rules of golf, have made a decision. Anchored putting will not be allowed after Jan. 1, 2016. What is anchored putting, you say? Well, if youve watched any golf on television, youve undoubtedly seen golfers with these putters that have an extra long handle. Instead of standing sideways, they face their target, balance the putter against their body, and putt straight ahead. It reminds me of a game we used to play in our backyard called croquet.

It could create all sorts of problems. What if a club pro, who belongs to the PGA, is running a tournament sanctioned by the USGA? Will he disqualify people who use a belly putter? Whose rules will he follow? Golfers who play in the U.S. routinely go to Europe to compete in tournaments, most notably the upcoming British Open, which the folks in Scotland call The Open, as if there were no other. This is part of the PGA Tour. So what rules would be followed? And then there are the poor local golfers. Most of them, I presume, use a regular old-fashioned putter. But if there are any using the long-handled version, will they be ostracized by their local groups? Please see FLYNN Page 11 Please see GOLF Page 11

A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; Warmer-thanaverage water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and El Nio is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center. New for this hurricane season are improvements to forecast models, data gathering, and the National Hurricane Center communication procedure for post-tropical cyclones. In July, NOAA plans to bring online a new supercomputer that will run an upgraded Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model that provides significantly enhanced depiction of storm structure and improved storm intensity forecast guidance. Also this year, Doppler radar data will be transmitted in real time from NOAAs Hurricane Hunter aircraft. This will help forecasters better analyze rapidly evolving storm conditions, and these data could further improve the HWRF model forecasts by 10 to 15 percent. The National Weather Service has also made changes to allow for hurricane warnings to remain in effect, or to be newly issued, for storms like Sandy that have become post-tropical. This flexibility allows forecasters to provide a continuous flow of forecast and warning information for evolving or continuing threats. The start of hurricane season is a reminder that our families, businesses and communities need to be ready for the next big storm, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Preparedness today can make a big difference down the line, so update your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked. Learn more about how you can prepare for hurricane season at www.ready.gov/hurricanes. This is National Hurricane Preparedness Week. To help those living in hurricane-prone areas prepare, NOAA is offering hurricane preparedness tips, along with video and audio public service announcements in both English and Spanish, featuring NOAA hurricane experts and the FEMA administrator at www.nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, May 29, 2013 3 10Wednesday, May 29, 2013 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger GARAGE SCREEN DOORS 465-4629 Call us today for a free estimate! $ 7 9 5 $ 7 9 5 $ 795 CRC058138 St art i ng at OPTIONAL SCREEN CHOICES.

This article was asking for help to close a budgetary gap which would impact Meals on Wheels, respite care givers, and the daily communal dining program. Sarah Stroh, director of Marion Senior Services, said that if a fraction of our county each gave a single dollar, the gap would be bridged. The gap was caused by the federal governments sequester. That article galvanized Andrea, a warm-hearted, caring former nurse, into action. She called the article to the attention of her friends who responded swiftly. Individuals, small social groups, and organized clubs within On Top of the World banded together. On Monday, May 13, the mens golfing groups were told the story by Archie Pollard and Bill Flannery. The men agreed to chip in a few dollars each day. By the end of the week, they had collected $222. Luz Leon, another caring person, was contacted and as acting Treasurer of the Looper Ladies Group and the President of the Caribbean Club she submitted this request and called for a majority vote toward this much needed cause. Each organization was moved by the plight of our less-fortunate contemporaries and generously agreed to donate a check from each treasury. Andrea continued to spread the word, with the assistance of Nancy Grabowski. Bunco players and Mah Jongg players agreed to pitch in. Individuals contributed. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the collection began to grow and grow. There were a few, admittedly, who thought these efforts wouldnt make a difference. They were proved wrong when the final tally was complete, this small circle of friends raised $660, which was be presented on Thursday, May 23. Stroh accepted the donation in the multi-purpose room at the Senior Services building, and told the people attending that some cuts still might have to be made. The story doesnt end here. More help is needed. Contributions can be mailed directly to: Marion Senior Services, 1101 SW 20th Court, Ocala FL 34471. You can also call Nancy Grabowski at 873-4315 for more information. Senior Services trying to fill funding gap Commentary BY JEFF JOHNSON Special to the Messenger The 2013 legislative session was a disappointment for Floridians age 50+ on health-care expansion and reform of the assisted-living industry. But lawmakers made positive steps by correcting mistakes in election law and banning texting while driving. Some of the Legislatures shortfalls on issues important to Floridians 50+ included: Failing to expand Medicaid coverage to more than 1 million uninsured Floridians of modest means. The House of Representatives failed to expand health coverage to more than 1 million uninsured Floridians, including as many as 260,000 Floridians age 50 to 64. Under federal law, Floridians could have gotten $51 billion worth of federal aid to expand health coverage under the Medicaid program. Instead, the House refused to accept federal funding for health-care expansion. For the second year in a row, legislative leaders failed to deliver legislation reforming oversight of the assisted-living industry. However, the 2013 session did produce some gains for older Floridians. Lawmakers corrected some of the past mistakes in election law by expanding the number of early-voting days and hours and limiting overly long ballot language in constitutional amendments proposed by lawmakers. AARP State President Jeff Johnson urged Gov. Rick Scott to sign into law a texting-while-driving ban, saying it was a good first step on an issue important to older voters. AARP and a broad coalition of groups have fought for the ban this year. Some 93 percent of Florida voters 50+ favored the ban. The state budget includes additional funding for 2,611 frail Floridians to receive services that can help them remain in their homes and communities rather than in institutional care. However, even with the additional funding, the number of seniors on waiting lists to receive homeand community-based services is nearly equal to the numbers of persons receiving those services. Lawmakers rejected harmful legislation that would have further restricted lawsuits by nursing home residents against nursing homes where frail residents suffer abuse or neglect. Jeff Johnson is AARP Floridas state director. 2013 Legislature disappointing for older Floridians PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELPaso Fino horses at Blueberry Festival A Blueberry Festival took place Saturday, May 18, at the Equestrian Complex on Southwest 60th Avenue. Shown are some Paso Fino horses entertaining the crowd. I have concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates this is fishing. When I was younger, I loved to fish. The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an Apple Fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. And I thought I was confused The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged Apple Fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

To putt, or not to putt, thats the question. Hopefully, we can get away from golf controversy, and get back to other things, like whether drones should be flying over the U.S. Come to think of it, I wonder if those drones could be used to spy on golfers, to see if anyone is sneaking around with a belly putter. For me, Ill stick with miniature golf. I wonder if any of those courses will let me use an anchored putter to get the ball through the windmill. Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. GOLFcontinued from Page 8 vestigation about a leak of classified information. Of course the White House knew nothing about the matter, except what it heard in news reports. Handling of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP embarrassments by the White House confirm Mary Matalins and James Carvilles book title Alls Fair In Love, War, and Running for President, particularly when the elected president never stops campaigning. Responses from Congress are expectable blow-back to persistent political pretzel baking at the White House. As George Orwell said In our age all issues are political and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.

LIBRARYcontinued from Page 1 Emerald Shores Elementary. In 2005, she moved to Staff Development at the district level. Three years later, she transferred to assistant principal at Horizon Academy at Marion Oaks and in 2010 moved to her current position at Marion Oaks Elementary. She earned her Bachelor of Art in elementary education from Our Lady of the Elms College. Her two Master of Education degrees in curriculum and instruction and educational leadership come from the University of Cincinnati and the University of Texas, respectively. In addition to these four appointments, Superintendent Tomyn previously announced 12 other schools with new leaders this summer including: Belleview High Mike Kelly Emerald Shores John Williams Fessenden Isaac Burgess Lake Weir High Wayne Livingston Lake Weir Middle Stephanie Callaway Legacy Elementary (new school) Dawn Prestipino Maplewood Laura Burgess Marion Oaks Elementary Gary Smallridge MTI Jim Wohrley North Marion High Cindy Saunders Sparr Elementary Patricia Hornsby Ward-Highlands Melissa Kinard PRINCIPALScontinued from Page 1 F airfield Villages rather extensive library owes much to its Library Committee members for keeping it so vital up to the present time. Many people have been a part of that group and they are to be thanked for their dedication and hard work. The new committee made up of Kerry Breedon, Jean Fernandez, Frann Glenney, Carol Ouellette, Ann Bruno, Ginie Keller, and Joan Koehler are planning some new enticements to keep up the already serious interest in wide collection of books available. One of the new projects will involve an Author of the Month. This will feature a display of that authors works and information about the persons life and career. It is believed that this will be of interest to those who frequent the library on a regular basis and possibly will draw interest from others who usually just read from their own personal libraries. Another focus of interest in FFVs library involves the photographic works captured by our own extremely talented Jim LePage. There are always several of Jims fantastic shots in the library and these are rotated on a regular basis. One would believe that Jim is a professional photographer, but he insists that photography is just a hobby that he truly loves since he first started taking pictures in 1985. He prefers wildlife especially birdsand any kind of plant or flower. His works rival most seen in local craft and art shows. Fairfield Village really appreciates the fact that Jim loans these beautiful works to be displayed in the library. In the accompanying photo, Jim is seen as he brings in a new photo to share. With him are Kerry Breedon and Jean Fernandez who expressed appreciation for LePages contributions to the library. I asked several of the committee members why they enjoy working with the library. Ann Bruno said, Im an avid reader so I have enjoyed our library as long as I have lived here. Ginie Keller remarked along the same line, We have such a nice selection of books, and I have always loved to read. Fairfield library building interest Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal Carol Ouellette mentioned, the wide variety of authors, while Jean Fernandez added, I like so many different authors, I couldnt begin to get them all. Along the same line, Frann Glenney mentioned how much she enjoys James Pattersons books and how glad she is that the library has such a large collection of them. Joan Koehler brought up another point that the library is really a very pretty place and that she feels very comfortable there. Additionally, there are some plans being made to update the computer in the library so that it will be available for use by those who have the need or desire to do so. Fairfield Village is very fortunate to have this exceptional group of people who are willing to work to keep our library up to date and inviting for our neighbors to visit and use. It is very obvious that their plans and efforts will add immeasurably to the amenities enjoyed by the neighbors here in Fairfield Village, a lively place filled with lovely people. Jim LePage, left, is seen as he shows one of his latest photos to Kerry Breedon and Jean Fernandez of the FFV Library Committee. Both expressed delight with the new addition. The FFV Library Committee met to discuss plans to create more interest and use of the library. Seated at the table L to R are Carol Ouellette, Jean Fernandez, and Frann Glenney.

For the six-month hurricane season, which begins June 1, NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted, everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time. said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. As we saw first-hand with Sandy, its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall. Three climate factors that strongly control Atlantic hurricane activity are expected to come together to produce an active or extremely active 2013 hurricane season. These are: Stormy summer predicted Please see HURRICANES Page 10 Readers of all ages will explore the magic and mysteries of the underground this summer as the Marion County Public Library System presents its Dig into Reading summer reading program from June 10-July 26 at its eight public library locations.

To putt, or not to putt, thats the question. Hopefully, we can get away from golf controversy, and get back to other things, like whether drones should be flying over the U.S. Come to think of it, I wonder if those drones could be used to spy on golfers, to see if anyone is sneaking around with a belly putter. For me, Ill stick with miniature golf. I wonder if any of those courses will let me use an anchored putter to get the ball through the windmill.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

Many people have been a part of that group and they are to be thanked for their dedication and hard work. The new committee made up of Kerry Breedon, Jean Fernandez, Frann Glenney, Carol Ouellette, Ann Bruno, Ginie Keller, and Joan Koehler are planning some new enticements to keep up the already serious interest in wide collection of books available. One of the new projects will involve an Author of the Month. This will feature a display of that authors works and information about the persons life and career. It is believed that this will be of interest to those who frequent the library on a regular basis and possibly will draw interest from others who usually just read from their own personal libraries. Another focus of interest in FFVs library involves the photographic works captured by our own extremely talented Jim LePage. There are always several of Jims fantastic shots in the library and these are rotated on a regular basis. One would believe that Jim is a professional photographer, but he insists that photography is just a hobby that he truly loves since he first started taking pictures in 1985. He prefers wildlife especially birdsand any kind of plant or flower. His works rival most seen in local craft and art shows. Fairfield Village really appreciates the fact that Jim loans these beautiful works to be displayed in the library. In the accompanying photo, Jim is seen as he brings in a new photo to share. With him are Kerry Breedon and Jean Fernandez who expressed appreciation for LePages contributions to the library. I asked several of the committee members why they enjoy working with the library. Ann Bruno said, Im an avid reader so I have enjoyed our library as long as I have lived here. Ginie Keller remarked along the same line, We have such a nice selection of books, and I have always loved to read. Fairfield library building interest Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal Carol Ouellette mentioned, the wide variety of authors, while Jean Fernandez added, I like so many different authors, I couldnt begin to get them all. Along the same line, Frann Glenney mentioned how much she enjoys James Pattersons books and how glad she is that the library has such a large collection of them. Joan Koehler brought up another point that the library is really a very pretty place and that she feels very comfortable there. Additionally, there are some plans being made to update the computer in the library so that it will be available for use by those who have the need or desire to do so. Fairfield Village is very fortunate to have this exceptional group of people who are willing to work to keep our library up to date and inviting for our neighbors to visit and use. It is very obvious that their plans and efforts will add immeasurably to the amenities enjoyed by the neighbors here in Fairfield Village, a lively place filled with lovely people. Jim LePage, left, is seen as he shows one of his latest photos to Kerry Breedon and Jean Fernandez of the FFV Library Committee. Both expressed delight with the new addition.

A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; Warmer-thanaverage water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and El Nio is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center. New for this hurricane season are improvements to forecast models, data gathering, and the National Hurricane Center communication procedure for post-tropical cyclones. In July, NOAA plans to bring online a new supercomputer that will run an upgraded Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model that provides significantly enhanced depiction of storm structure and improved storm intensity forecast guidance. Also this year, Doppler radar data will be transmitted in real time from NOAAs Hurricane Hunter aircraft. This will help forecasters better analyze rapidly evolving storm conditions, and these data could further improve the HWRF model forecasts by 10 to 15 percent. The National Weather Service has also made changes to allow for hurricane warnings to remain in effect, or to be newly issued, for storms like Sandy that have become post-tropical. This flexibility allows forecasters to provide a continuous flow of forecast and warning information for evolving or continuing threats. The start of hurricane season is a reminder that our families, businesses and communities need to be ready for the next big storm, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Preparedness today can make a big difference down the line, so update your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked. Learn more about how you can prepare for hurricane season at www.ready.gov/hurricanes. This is National Hurricane Preparedness Week. To help those living in hurricane-prone areas prepare, NOAA is offering hurricane preparedness tips, along with video and audio public service announcements in both English and Spanish, featuring NOAA hurricane experts and the FEMA administrator at www.nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/.messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, May 29, 2013 3 10 Wednesday, May 29, 2013 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger GARAGE SCREEN DOORS 465-4629 Call us today for a free estimate! $ 795 $ 795 $ 795 CRC058138 St art i ng at OPTIONAL SCREEN CHOICES.

This article was asking for help to close a budgetary gap which would impact Meals on Wheels, respite care givers, and the daily communal dining program. Sarah Stroh, director of Marion Senior Services, said that if a fraction of our county each gave a single dollar, the gap would be bridged. The gap was caused by the federal governments sequester. That article galvanized Andrea, a warm-hearted, caring former nurse, into action. She called the article to the attention of her friends who responded swiftly. Individuals, small social groups, and organized clubs within On Top of the World banded together. On Monday, May 13, the mens golfing groups were told the story by Archie Pollard and Bill Flannery. The men agreed to chip in a few dollars each day. By the end of the week, they had collected $222. Luz Leon, another caring person, was contacted and as acting Treasurer of the Looper Ladies Group and the President of the Caribbean Club she submitted this request and called for a majority vote toward this much needed cause. Each organization was moved by the plight of our less-fortunate contemporaries and generously agreed to donate a check from each treasury. Andrea continued to spread the word, with the assistance of Nancy Grabowski. Bunco players and Mah Jongg players agreed to pitch in. Individuals contributed. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the collection began to grow and grow. There were a few, admittedly, who thought these efforts wouldnt make a difference. They were proved wrong when the final tally was complete, this small circle of friends raised $660, which was be presented on Thursday, May 23. Stroh accepted the donation in the multi-purpose room at the Senior Services building, and told the people attending that some cuts still might have to be made. The story doesnt end here. More help is needed. Contributions can be mailed directly to: Marion Senior Services, 1101 SW 20th Court, Ocala FL 34471. You can also call Nancy Grabowski at 873-4315 for more information. Senior Services trying to fill funding gap Commentary BY JEFF JOHNSON Special to the MessengerThe 2013 legislative session was a disappointment for Floridians age 50+ on health-care expansion and reform of the assisted-living industry. But lawmakers made positive steps by correcting mistakes in election law and banning texting while driving. Some of the Legislatures shortfalls on issues important to Floridians 50+ included: Failing to expand Medicaid coverage to more than 1 million uninsured Floridians of modest means. The House of Representatives failed to expand health coverage to more than 1 million uninsured Floridians, including as many as 260,000 Floridians age 50 to 64. Under federal law, Floridians could have gotten $51 billion worth of federal aid to expand health coverage under the Medicaid program. Instead, the House refused to accept federal funding for health-care expansion. For the second year in a row, legislative leaders failed to deliver legislation reforming oversight of the assisted-living industry. However, the 2013 session did produce some gains for older Floridians. Lawmakers corrected some of the past mistakes in election law by expanding the number of early-voting days and hours and limiting overly long ballot language in constitutional amendments proposed by lawmakers. AARP State President Jeff Johnson urged Gov. Rick Scott to sign into law a texting-while-driving ban, saying it was a good first step on an issue important to older voters. AARP and a broad coalition of groups have fought for the ban this year. Some 93 percent of Florida voters 50+ favored the ban. The state budget includes additional funding for 2,611 frail Floridians to receive services that can help them remain in their homes and communities rather than in institutional care. However, even with the additional funding, the number of seniors on waiting lists to receive homeand community-based services is nearly equal to the numbers of persons receiving those services. Lawmakers rejected harmful legislation that would have further restricted lawsuits by nursing home residents against nursing homes where frail residents suffer abuse or neglect. Jeff Johnson is AARP Floridas state director. 2013 Legislature disappointing for older Floridians PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELPaso Fino horses at Blueberry FestivalA Blueberry Festival took place Saturday, May 18, at the Equestrian Complex on Southwest 60th Avenue. Shown are some Paso Fino horses entertaining the crowd. Ihave concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates this is fishing. When I was younger, I loved to fish. The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an Apple Fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. And I thought I was confused The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged Apple Fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family. For additional recipes and informa tion, visit www.kikkomanUSA.com.Natural,Quality Ingredients MaketheMeal Brining 101What exactly is brining? Much like a marinade, meat and poultry is soaked in flavorful liquid, such as an all-purpose seasoning like Kikkoman Soy Sauce. This adds a tremendous amount of flavor and also breaks down proteins, thus, tenderizing the meat or poultry. The only real rule to brining is that the meat must be kept cold throughout the entire pro cess.Usealargecontainer,cooler or brining bag that can fit into a refrigerator because the protein and brine solution has to be kept below 40 degrees at all times.

Bake meatballs at 350F on ungreased cookie sheet for 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, heat deep skillet, add oil, 1 clove garlic and onions and saut for about 5 minutes until onions are soft.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Bad weather Another week, another tragedy to discuss. This time it was in Moore, Oklahoma, where a powerful tornado flattened a milewide path through the town. Moore is just outside Oklahoma City, and is the home of country singer Toby Keith, who is on the ground helping, and of New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who was pulled out of batting practice the day of the storm and told to take time to contact his family. Relatives of both men are safe. Probably the biggest talking point has been safe rooms and storm cellars, particularly where it involves the two elementary schools in the path. An older school was damaged and a number of children injured or killed. Students did what many of us were taught, to go into the hall away from windows, but many then ended up in bathrooms huddled together. One of the more touching stories was that of a teacher who was in a bathroom stall covering four little boys. She said one of the boys asked if they were going to die, and she told him she would protect him, which she did. Then she did something as a teacher youre probably not supposed to do I prayed out loud. TV networks and other journalists descended upon the area, wringing their hands and discussing how terrible it was while promoting special shows that undoubtedly would help ratings. The local TV reporters who we heard initially got emotional, because they were talking about their own friends and relatives. Some may not consider that professional, but it was real, compelling television. The newer school had a safe area built into the school, and students reportedly escaped harm. In the area, few homes have basements because the soil makes them susceptible to flooding. But after two other tornadoes in the past 15 years, many people built storm shelters in their back yards and were able to make use of them for themselves and neighbors. Were heading into hurricane season here in Florida, but as many have pointed out, at least with a hurricane you have many days notice that its coming. Not so about tornadoes, which can pop up anytime theres a severe weather threat. But with the hurricane season due, its time to remember that everyone can be a victim of severe weather. Make sure youre prepared. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest column This too shall pass, but not any time soonBY JIM FLYNN Our government started bending the truth when it was still a collection of colonies. History teaches that the primary cause of the American Revolution was taxation without representation. There were other issues. The Boston tea party was an uprising against a tax on ship cargo, but its little known that some of the tea-partiers were among the smugglers who supplied 90 percent of the tea being consumed at the time. The British East India Company, which had a tea monopoly, did not appreciate the competition. The colonies had no representatives in the British parliament, and they had to suffer autocratic governors, some of whom were corrupt. Another reason for wanting independence was the colonists unspoken desires to control importation of slaves, and to subjugate and impress native Indians. Explanations of many other events have come under suspicion. In January 1898, our battleship USS Maine entered Havana harbor to protect American business interests during a Cuban revolt against the Spanish government. A few days later the Maine sank when its gunpowder magazines exploded, killing most of the crew. Washington blamed a Spanish mine, and a few months later the U.S. was at war with Spain. The captain of the Maine insisted the sinking was caused by a coal bin explosion. After the war the Maine was raised, and the captains report was confirmed. Similar fact-bending was President Lyndon Johnsons insistence that a torpedo attack in the Gulf of Tonkin justified escalating the Vietnam War. Mr. Johnson relied on a report from an inexperienced sonar operator that there were torpedoes, which was doubtful. The president heard what he wanted to hear, a common audiology malfunction at the White House. The current conflict between the White House and Congress over killings of four Americans in the attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, is similar to President Johnsons use of selective information. The Obama White House decided Benghazi would play better as a spontaneous uproar over an anti-Islam movie than an organized terrorist attack at least until after the presidential election. So the nation was told what the White House wanted to hear. More of the same is news that the IRS was over diligent in examining nonprofit-status applications by Tea Party organizations. President Obama relies on the Sgt. Schultz defense (from TVs Hogans Heroes): I knew nothing! IRS management claims to have been similarly uninformed. They also heard only what they wanted to hear. In the third recent matter with an odor of truth bending, the Justice Department at first chose to say nothing about tapping phone lines of the Associated Press. As disclosure blossomed, Justice said the matter is a criminal inReader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

Here we are with all these major debates going on in our country and around the world about things such as the IRS, Benghazi and the First Amendment. But here comes another mess, and this time its one that a lot of people living here in southwest Ocala wont be able to escape. Its all about golf. Thats right, golf. Some people would say its about time that we got our priorities in order and started talking about something really important. Of course, for me thats not the case. I played one round of golf my entire life, and shot a 103. Oh, did I tell you it was a 9-hole course? My dad was trying to teach me on what he called a simple course in Mystic Islands, New Jersey. I decided that if that was simple, well, I wasnt going to waste my time. But back to the controversy. The old fuddy-duddies, particularly in Scotland, who make the rules of golf, have made a decision. Anchored putting will not be allowed after Jan. 1, 2016. What is anchored putting, you say? Well, if youve watched any golf on television, youve undoubtedly seen golfers with these putters that have an extra long handle. Instead of standing sideways, they face their target, balance the putter against their body, and putt straight ahead. It reminds me of a game we used to play in our backyard called croquet. You held the mallet, swung it between your legs as you faced the target, and hit the ball. Some uncouth golf analysts call it a belly putter, but we all know the royal whatevers in Scotland prefer anchored putting. Heres the big part of the controversy. Now here comes a real controversy Among Friends Jim Clark When the folks in Scotland, joined by the United States Golf Association (USGA), made this announcement, the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) and the golfers themselves failed to endorse the change, leading to speculation that the putters might not be outlawed on the PGA Tour. Heavens, whats the world coming to? A dispute in the ranks of the great game where the fans can get a player disqualified by calling in? It makes Sergios racial comment about Tiger Woods seem mild. It could create all sorts of problems. What if a club pro, who belongs to the PGA, is running a tournament sanctioned by the USGA? Will he disqualify people who use a belly putter? Whose rules will he follow? Golfers who play in the U.S. routinely go to Europe to compete in tournaments, most notably the upcoming British Open, which the folks in Scotland call The Open, as if there were no other. This is part of the PGA Tour. So what rules would be followed? And then there are the poor local golfers. Most of them, I presume, use a regular old-fashioned putter. But if there are any using the long-handled version, will they be ostracized by their local groups? Please see FLYNN, Page 11 Please see GOLF, Page 11

The tables were decorated with live potted plants, which were later used as door prizes. Jan Johnson was given a crown in honor of her birthday. On Saturday night approximately 75 residents and guests enjoyed a fabulous dinner of Chicken Marsala that was catered by Doing Dinner. Following the dinner we were entertained by Sally Langwah, impressionist, singer, and entertainer. The theme of her show was Vegas Nights. The show began with Mae West, followed by Charo, Marlene Dietrich, Maria (Sound of Music), Betty Boop, Carmen Miranda, Marilyn Monroe, Connie Francis, Cher, and Patsy Cline. Charo even had a Congo line with the audience forming the line. Marilyn Monroe paid special tribute to Quail Meadow resident Billy Cooper, who was celebrating his birthday; she sang Happy Birthday as only Marilyn could do it. Also in the audience we had Jack Kennedy who enjoyed some jokes with Marilyn. Everyone enjoyed the music. The costume changes were very impressive. If you didnt know better, you would have thought you were actually hearing the live voices of those Sally was impersonating. Paul Cigrand was volunteered to be Sonny to sing with Cher I Got You Babe. The show closed with Patsy Cline singing several numbers and ending with Sally singing God Bless the USA. Everyone was very impressed with the entertainment it was a great evening in Quail Meadow. Sally Langwah has an outstanding voice (she has a 3 octave range). She has performed in the theater where she was voted Favorite Female Vocalist for her portrayal as Maria in The Sound of Music. She performs impressions of over 30 superstars. Assisting Sally with her music is her husband, Roy. For more information about Sally Langwah, go to her website: sallylangwah.com.

LifeSouth Community Blood Centers will celebrate its 25-year membership with the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership with a special gathering June 3 at 4 p.m. in the Ocala donor center at 1607 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Weve both changed names, weve both changed locations, and weve both grown, said LifeSouth Marion Regional Manager Colleen Coleman. The mutual support has remained strong all 25 years. Back in 1987, LifeSouth was known as Civitan Regional Blood Center and had one small store-front donor center, a few blocks east of the current location, and one bloodmobile to serve the county. Today it has a modern center in Ocala, a branch location in Dunnellon and two bloodmobiles to serve the county, which has grown in population by nearly 80 percent in the two-plus decades. LifeSouths Marion County donors support patients at the Malcom Randall V. A. Medical Center and Shands at UF. In 2012 more than 32,000 Marion County residents received care at the hospitals. LifeSouth also recently signed an agreement with Ocala Regional Medical Center to supplement that hospitals blood supply, when needed. Coleman said LifeSouth needs more than 250 donors each week to meet local needs. Weve been able to succeed here because of the support of the community and the many, many donors who every day decide to give blood, said Coleman. There will be a ribbon-cutting to mark the anniverLifeSouth, Chamber mark 25 years sary, hors doeuvres and soft drinks, and a chance for visitors to meet and talk with LifeSouth staff. And anybody who wants to donate, wed be happy to help them save a life, said Coleman. Way Back in 1987 Three Men and a Baby and Fatal Attraction battled at the box office. Bon Jovis Slippery When Wet was the No. 1 selling album and George Michaels Faith was the No. 1 singThe Beastie Boys Licensed to Ill became the first rap album to top the charts. The Bill Cosby Show, Family Ties and Cheers were mega hits on TV. Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow was born. The Simpsons debuted.

If you didnt know better, you would have thought you were actually hearing the live voices of those Sally was impersonating. Paul Cigrand was volunteered to be Sonny to sing with Cher I Got You Babe. The show closed with Patsy Cline singing several numbers and ending with Sally singing God Bless the USA. Everyone was very impressed with the entertainment it was a great evening in Quail Meadow. Sally Langwah has an outstanding voice (she has a 3 octave range). She has performed in the theater where she was voted Favorite Female Vocalist for her portrayal as Maria in The Sound of Music. She performs impressions of over 30 superstars. Assisting Sally with her music is her husband, Roy. For more information about Sally Langwah, go to her website: sallylangwah.com. The next event planned for the clubhouse is the Quail Meadow Birthday Party on Monday, June 10. This will be a potluck dinner with cake and ice cream provided by the social committee. There will also be entertainment at the party. The Golden Troupers from the Ocala Civic Theater will entertain us after dinner. Plan now to join us for another great evening.

LifeSouth Community Blood Centers will celebrate its 25-year membership with the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership with a special gathering June 3 at 4 p.m. in the Ocala donor center at 1607 E. Silver Springs Blvd. Weve both changed names, weve both changed locations, and weve both grown, said LifeSouth Marion Regional Manager Colleen Coleman. The mutual support has remained strong all 25 years. Back in 1987, LifeSouth was known as Civitan Regional Blood Center and had one small store-front donor center, a few blocks east of the current location, and one bloodmobile to serve the county. Today it has a modern center in Ocala, a branch location in Dunnellon and two bloodmobiles to serve the county, which has grown in population by nearly 80 percent in the two-plus decades. LifeSouths Marion County donors support patients at the Malcom Randall V. A. Medical Center and Shands at UF. In 2012 more than 32,000 Marion County residents received care at the hospitals. LifeSouth also recently signed an agreement with Ocala Regional Medical Center to supplement that hospitals blood supply, when needed. Coleman said LifeSouth needs more than 250 donors each week to meet local needs. Weve been able to succeed here because of the support of the community and the many, many donors who every day decide to give blood, said Coleman. There will be a ribbon-cutting to mark the anniverLifeSouth, Chamber mark 25 years sary, hors doeuvres and soft drinks, and a chance for visitors to meet and talk with LifeSouth staff. And anybody who wants to donate, wed be happy to help them save a life, said Coleman. Way Back in 1987 Three Men and a Baby and Fatal Attraction battled at the box office. Bon Jovis Slippery When Wet was the No. 1 selling album and George Michaels Faith was the No. 1 singThe Beastie Boys Licensed to Ill became the first rap album to top the charts. The Bill Cosby Show, Family Ties and Cheers were mega hits on TV. Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow was born. The Simpsons debuted.

Let your pantry serve as your starting point for creating memorable meals the family will love.Proper Pantry PracticesBefore letting those creative culinary juices flow, take inventory of your pantry. If you find items that are too old, that have never been touched, or that you hardly ever use get rid of them. Look closely at the ingredient list to decide which items to keep. Get rid of items filled with corn syrup and artificial sweeteners and colors. Foods with fewer ingredients and pronounce able words tend to be more natural or whole. Made from four ingredients, Kikkomans Soy Sauce is brewed naturally, using a traditional process that goes back hundreds of years. Other keepers include honey, canned beans, whole grain pastas or rice, raw nuts and olive oil. Once your pantry is in order, you can incorporate these healthy staples into meals using the freshest vegetables, poultry, fish and beef. By keeping your pantry stocked with the most whole some ingredients, you can be sure you are giving the very best to your family. For additional recipes and informa tion, visit www.kikkomanUSA.com.Natural,Quality Ingredients MaketheMeal Brining 101What exactly is brining? Much like a marinade, meat and poultry is soaked in flavorful liquid, such as an all-purpose seasoning like Kikkoman Soy Sauce. This adds a tremendous amount of flavor and also breaks down proteins, thus, tenderizing the meat or poultry. The only real rule to brining is that the meat must be kept cold throughout the entire pro cess.Usealargecontainer,cooler or brining bag that can fit into a refrigerator because the protein and brine solution has to be kept below 40 degrees at all times.

Combine ground beef, eggs, panko, soy sauce, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 2 cloves of garlic in large bowl; shape into 1 1/2-inch sized meatballs. Bake meatballs at 350F on ungreased cookie sheet for 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, heat deep skillet, add oil, 1 clove garlic and onions and saut for about 5 minutes until onions are soft.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Bad weather Another week, another tragedy to discuss. This time it was in Moore, Oklahoma, where a powerful tornado flattened a milewide path through the town. Moore is just outside Oklahoma City, and is the home of country singer Toby Keith, who is on the ground helping, and of New York Mets pitcher Jeremy Hefner, who was pulled out of batting practice the day of the storm and told to take time to contact his family. Relatives of both men are safe. Probably the biggest talking point has been safe rooms and storm cellars, particularly where it involves the two elementary schools in the path. An older school was damaged and a number of children injured or killed. Students did what many of us were taught, to go into the hall away from windows, but many then ended up in bathrooms huddled together. One of the more touching stories was that of a teacher who was in a bathroom stall covering four little boys. She said one of the boys asked if they were going to die, and she told him she would protect him, which she did. Then she did something as a teacher youre probably not supposed to do I prayed out loud. TV networks and other journalists descended upon the area, wringing their hands and discussing how terrible it was while promoting special shows that undoubtedly would help ratings. The local TV reporters who we heard initially got emotional, because they were talking about their own friends and relatives. Some may not consider that professional, but it was real, compelling television. The newer school had a safe area built into the school, and students reportedly escaped harm. In the area, few homes have basements because the soil makes them susceptible to flooding. But after two other tornadoes in the past 15 years, many people built storm shelters in their back yards and were able to make use of them for themselves and neighbors. Were heading into hurricane season here in Florida, but as many have pointed out, at least with a hurricane you have many days notice that its coming. Not so about tornadoes, which can pop up anytime theres a severe weather threat. But with the hurricane season due, its time to remember that everyone can be a victim of severe weather. Make sure youre prepared. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest column This too shall pass, but not any time soonBY JIM FLYNN Our government started bending the truth when it was still a collection of colonies. History teaches that the primary cause of the American Revolution was taxation without representation. There were other issues. The Boston tea party was an uprising against a tax on ship cargo, but its little known that some of the tea-partiers were among the smugglers who supplied 90 percent of the tea being consumed at the time. The British East India Company, which had a tea monopoly, did not appreciate the competition. The colonies had no representatives in the British parliament, and they had to suffer autocratic governors, some of whom were corrupt. Another reason for wanting independence was the colonists unspoken desires to control importation of slaves, and to subjugate and impress native Indians. Explanations of many other events have come under suspicion. In January 1898, our battleship USS Maine entered Havana harbor to protect American business interests during a Cuban revolt against the Spanish government. A few days later the Maine sank when its gunpowder magazines exploded, killing most of the crew. Washington blamed a Spanish mine, and a few months later the U.S. was at war with Spain. The captain of the Maine insisted the sinking was caused by a coal bin explosion. After the war the Maine was raised, and the captains report was confirmed. Similar fact-bending was President Lyndon Johnsons insistence that a torpedo attack in the Gulf of Tonkin justified escalating the Vietnam War. Mr. Johnson relied on a report from an inexperienced sonar operator that there were torpedoes, which was doubtful. The president heard what he wanted to hear, a common audiology malfunction at the White House. The current conflict between the White House and Congress over killings of four Americans in the attack at the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, is similar to President Johnsons use of selective information. The Obama White House decided Benghazi would play better as a spontaneous uproar over an anti-Islam movie than an organized terrorist attack at least until after the presidential election. So the nation was told what the White House wanted to hear. More of the same is news that the IRS was over diligent in examining nonprofit-status applications by Tea Party organizations. President Obama relies on the Sgt. Schultz defense (from TVs Hogans Heroes): I knew nothing! IRS management claims to have been similarly uninformed. They also heard only what they wanted to hear. In the third recent matter with an odor of truth bending, the Justice Department at first chose to say nothing about tapping phone lines of the Associated Press. As disclosure blossomed, Justice said the matter is a criminal inReader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

Here we are with all these major debates going on in our country and around the world about things such as the IRS, Benghazi and the First Amendment. But here comes another mess, and this time its one that a lot of people living here in southwest Ocala wont be able to escape. Its all about golf. Thats right, golf. Some people would say its about time that we got our priorities in order and started talking about something really important. Of course, for me thats not the case. I played one round of golf my entire life, and shot a 103. Oh, did I tell you it was a 9-hole course? My dad was trying to teach me on what he called a simple course in Mystic Islands, New Jersey. I decided that if that was simple, well, I wasnt going to waste my time. But back to the controversy. The old fuddy-duddies, particularly in Scotland, who make the rules of golf, have made a decision. Anchored putting will not be allowed after Jan. 1, 2016. What is anchored putting, you say? Well, if youve watched any golf on television, youve undoubtedly seen golfers with these putters that have an extra long handle. Instead of standing sideways, they face their target, balance the putter against their body, and putt straight ahead. It reminds me of a game we used to play in our backyard called croquet. You held the mallet, swung it between your legs as you faced the target, and hit the ball. Some uncouth golf analysts call it a belly putter, but we all know the royal whatevers in Scotland prefer anchored putting. Heres the big part of the controversy. Now here comes a real controversy Among Friends Jim Clark When the folks in Scotland, joined by the United States Golf Association (USGA), made this announcement, the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) and the golfers themselves failed to endorse the change, leading to speculation that the putters might not be outlawed on the PGA Tour. Heavens, whats the world coming to? A dispute in the ranks of the great game where the fans can get a player disqualified by calling in? It makes Sergios racial comment about Tiger Woods seem mild. It could create all sorts of problems. What if a club pro, who belongs to the PGA, is running a tournament sanctioned by the USGA? Will he disqualify people who use a belly putter? Whose rules will he follow? Golfers who play in the U.S. routinely go to Europe to compete in tournaments, most notably the upcoming British Open, which the folks in Scotland call The Open, as if there were no other. This is part of the PGA Tour. So what rules would be followed? And then there are the poor local golfers. Most of them, I presume, use a regular old-fashioned putter. But if there are any using the long-handled version, will they be ostracized by their local groups? Please see FLYNN, Page 11 Please see GOLF, Page 11

A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995; Warmer-thanaverage water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and El Nio is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation. This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes, said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa. NOAAs seasonal hurricane outlook is not a hurricane landfall forecast; it does not predict how many storms will hit land or where a storm will strike. Forecasts for individual storms and their impacts will be provided throughout the season by NOAAs National Hurricane Center. New for this hurricane season are improvements to forecast models, data gathering, and the National Hurricane Center communication procedure for post-tropical cyclones. In July, NOAA plans to bring online a new supercomputer that will run an upgraded Hurricane Weather Research and Forecasting (HWRF) model that provides significantly enhanced depiction of storm structure and improved storm intensity forecast guidance. Also this year, Doppler radar data will be transmitted in real time from NOAAs Hurricane Hunter aircraft. This will help forecasters better analyze rapidly evolving storm conditions, and these data could further improve the HWRF model forecasts by 10 to 15 percent. The National Weather Service has also made changes to allow for hurricane warnings to remain in effect, or to be newly issued, for storms like Sandy that have become post-tropical. This flexibility allows forecasters to provide a continuous flow of forecast and warning information for evolving or continuing threats. The start of hurricane season is a reminder that our families, businesses and communities need to be ready for the next big storm, said Joe Nimmich, FEMA associate administrator for Response and Recovery. Preparedness today can make a big difference down the line, so update your family emergency plan and make sure your emergency kit is stocked. Learn more about how you can prepare for hurricane season at www.ready.gov/hurricanes. This is National Hurricane Preparedness Week. To help those living in hurricane-prone areas prepare, NOAA is offering hurricane preparedness tips, along with video and audio public service announcements in both English and Spanish, featuring NOAA hurricane experts and the FEMA administrator at www.nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/.messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, May 29, 2013 3 10 Wednesday, May 29, 2013 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger GARAGE SCREEN DOORS 465-4629 Call us today for a free estimate! $ 795 $ 795 $ 795 CRC058138 St art i ng at OPTIONAL SCREEN CHOICES.

This article was asking for help to close a budgetary gap which would impact Meals on Wheels, respite care givers, and the daily communal dining program. Sarah Stroh, director of Marion Senior Services, said that if a fraction of our county each gave a single dollar, the gap would be bridged. The gap was caused by the federal governments sequester. That article galvanized Andrea, a warm-hearted, caring former nurse, into action. She called the article to the attention of her friends who responded swiftly. Individuals, small social groups, and organized clubs within On Top of the World banded together. On Monday, May 13, the mens golfing groups were told the story by Archie Pollard and Bill Flannery. The men agreed to chip in a few dollars each day. By the end of the week, they had collected $222. Luz Leon, another caring person, was contacted and as acting Treasurer of the Looper Ladies Group and the President of the Caribbean Club she submitted this request and called for a majority vote toward this much needed cause. Each organization was moved by the plight of our less-fortunate contemporaries and generously agreed to donate a check from each treasury. Andrea continued to spread the word, with the assistance of Nancy Grabowski. Bunco players and Mah Jongg players agreed to pitch in. Individuals contributed. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the collection began to grow and grow. There were a few, admittedly, who thought these efforts wouldnt make a difference. They were proved wrong when the final tally was complete, this small circle of friends raised $660, which was be presented on Thursday, May 23. Stroh accepted the donation in the multi-purpose room at the Senior Services building, and told the people attending that some cuts still might have to be made. The story doesnt end here. More help is needed. Contributions can be mailed directly to: Marion Senior Services, 1101 SW 20th Court, Ocala FL 34471. You can also call Nancy Grabowski at 873-4315 for more information. Senior Services trying to fill funding gap Commentary BY JEFF JOHNSON Special to the MessengerThe 2013 legislative session was a disappointment for Floridians age 50+ on health-care expansion and reform of the assisted-living industry. But lawmakers made positive steps by correcting mistakes in election law and banning texting while driving. Some of the Legislatures shortfalls on issues important to Floridians 50+ included: Failing to expand Medicaid coverage to more than 1 million uninsured Floridians of modest means. The House of Representatives failed to expand health coverage to more than 1 million uninsured Floridians, including as many as 260,000 Floridians age 50 to 64. Under federal law, Floridians could have gotten $51 billion worth of federal aid to expand health coverage under the Medicaid program. Instead, the House refused to accept federal funding for health-care expansion. For the second year in a row, legislative leaders failed to deliver legislation reforming oversight of the assisted-living industry. However, the 2013 session did produce some gains for older Floridians. Lawmakers corrected some of the past mistakes in election law by expanding the number of early-voting days and hours and limiting overly long ballot language in constitutional amendments proposed by lawmakers. AARP State President Jeff Johnson urged Gov. Rick Scott to sign into law a texting-while-driving ban, saying it was a good first step on an issue important to older voters. AARP and a broad coalition of groups have fought for the ban this year. Some 93 percent of Florida voters 50+ favored the ban. The state budget includes additional funding for 2,611 frail Floridians to receive services that can help them remain in their homes and communities rather than in institutional care. However, even with the additional funding, the number of seniors on waiting lists to receive homeand community-based services is nearly equal to the numbers of persons receiving those services. Lawmakers rejected harmful legislation that would have further restricted lawsuits by nursing home residents against nursing homes where frail residents suffer abuse or neglect. Jeff Johnson is AARP Floridas state director. 2013 Legislature disappointing for older Floridians PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELPaso Fino horses at Blueberry FestivalA Blueberry Festival took place Saturday, May 18, at the Equestrian Complex on Southwest 60th Avenue. Shown are some Paso Fino horses entertaining the crowd. Ihave concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesnt work for me. I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, Dancing with the Idiots. The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots? Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me. I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all. When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing. One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wifes back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize? I think the only thing that really illustrates this is fishing. When I was younger, I loved to fish. The wonderful world of angling consists of two kinds of fishermen: those who brag a lot and those who catch a lot and the twain shall never cross rods. I was an avid fisherman and it was a long time before I figured out that in the 23rd Psalm David is not talking about a fishing rod when he says, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Be that as it may, my fishing rod did a great deal of comforting me back in the day. When I would go fishing and come home empty-handed, I could brag about the big one that got away. Of course, every time I told the story the fish got just a little bit bigger. But who is going to correct me on that? Who is to say that it was not really that big? Or, even bigger? When I came home with a bunch of fish, the catch spoke for itself. After all, how in the world can you exaggerate something when it is right before you? Who do you think I am? A politician? If you do think you are getting away with something, somebody will see you and share that information with somebody else who will share that information with somebody else until it has come full circle. Thus begins the dizzy world of confusion. Just this week, for example, I was caught. I hate getting caught. I had come home after a long day at the office and my wife greeted me with, I saw Mrs. Jones who said she saw Mrs. Smith who told her that Mrs. Grant saw you buying an Apple Fritter at Publix. Is there any truth in it? Any husband knows he will never win any argument when there are four women who testify to the contrary of what he is about to say. And I thought I was confused The best procedure at this point is to fall on the mercy of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Because, I have discovered the great secret to marital bliss. Simply put, when she is happy, I am happy. The trick is to find out what makes her happy. When I am thus caught with the alleged Apple Fritter, she is happiest when I confess and say the magical words, Youre right! Arguments have disappeared. The only thing I have to hear now is, Well, dont let it happen again. And the marital bliss is back on track and I have averted a personal train wreck. A long time ago, I understood the difference between being happy and being right. Yes, there is that time when you need to stand your ground regardless of the consequence. My philosophy of life is to simply pick your battles very carefully. Not every battle is worth the scars. After all, when you are caught with the goods in hand, denying it is the epitome of stupidity. Unless I am a politician, I want to stay away from stupidity as much as possible. The thing about denying the scandal you might be in at the time is, it only prolongs the focus on the scandal. Perhaps some politicians could take my advice and confess fully when caught with the goods in hand. Saying, Im sorry, is the first step in putting something behind you. Someone said that confession is good for the soul. It is good for many other things as well. The Bible is sure good on this aspect of confession. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 KJV). The world can be very confusing if we are not willing to fess up and try straightening things out.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Handling of the Benghazi, IRS, and AP embarrassments by the White House confirm Mary Matalins and James Carvilles book title Alls Fair In Love, War, and Running for President, particularly when the elected president never stops campaigning.

Many people have been a part of that group and they are to be thanked for their dedication and hard work. The new committee made up of Kerry Breedon, Jean Fernandez, Frann Glenney, Carol Ouellette, Ann Bruno, Ginie Keller, and Joan Koehler are planning some new enticements to keep up the already serious interest in wide collection of books available. One of the new projects will involve an Author of the Month. This will feature a display of that authors works and information about the persons life and career. It is believed that this will be of interest to those who frequent the library on a regular basis and possibly will draw interest from others who usually just read from their own personal libraries. Another focus of interest in FFVs library involves the photographic works captured by our own extremely talented Jim LePage. There are always several of Jims fantastic shots in the library and these are rotated on a regular basis. One would believe that Jim is a professional photographer, but he insists that photography is just a hobby that he truly loves since he first started taking pictures in 1985. He prefers wildlife especially birdsand any kind of plant or flower. His works rival most seen in local craft and art shows. Fairfield Village really appreciates the fact that Jim loans these beautiful works to be displayed in the library. In the accompanying photo, Jim is seen as he brings in a new photo to share. With him are Kerry Breedon and Jean Fernandez who expressed appreciation for LePages contributions to the library. I asked several of the committee members why they enjoy working with the library. Ann Bruno said, Im an avid reader so I have enjoyed our library as long as I have lived here. Ginie Keller remarked along the same line, We have such a nice selection of books, and I have always loved to read. Fairfield library building interest Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal Carol Ouellette mentioned, the wide variety of authors, while Jean Fernandez added, I like so many different authors, I couldnt begin to get them all. Along the same line, Frann Glenney mentioned how much she enjoys James Pattersons books and how glad she is that the library has such a large collection of them. Joan Koehler brought up another point that the library is really a very pretty place and that she feels very comfortable there. Additionally, there are some plans being made to update the computer in the library so that it will be available for use by those who have the need or desire to do so. Fairfield Village is very fortunate to have this exceptional group of people who are willing to work to keep our library up to date and inviting for our neighbors to visit and use. It is very obvious that their plans and efforts will add immeasurably to the amenities enjoyed by the neighbors here in Fairfield Village, a lively place filled with lovely people. Jim LePage, left, is seen as he shows one of his latest photos to Kerry Breedon and Jean Fernandez of the FFV Library Committee. Both expressed delight with the new addition.

Column and more photos on Page 7. In its 2013 Atlantic hurricane season outlook issued May 23, NOAAs Climate Prediction Center is forecasting an active or extremely active season this year. For the six-month hurricane season, which begins June 1, NOAAs Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook says there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. With the devastation of Sandy fresh in our minds, and another active season predicted, everyone at NOAA is committed to providing life-saving forecasts in the face of these storms and ensuring that Americans are prepared and ready ahead of time. said Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., NOAA acting administrator. As we saw first-hand with Sandy, its important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding, and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall. Three climate factors that strongly control Atlantic hurricane activity are expected to come together to produce an active or extremely active 2013 hurricane season.
