Both have already graduated from the College of Central Florida with AA degrees, and both studied engineering. Katherine is going to attend Georgia Tech while Josh is headed for the honors program at the University of Florida.

More photos on Page 3 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK A new-and-improved Downtown Square is coming! Work has started on the historic heart of Ocala, which is undergoing minor improvements, which are expected to be complete by Oct. 1. The renovation process will likely not cause significant interference with daily pedestrian movement and traffic circulation. Sidewalks and the frontage road will remain open, except during demolition operations, construction work or loading/unloading of equipment. Impact on parking will be minimal, with a multitude of public parking still available: http://www.feeldowntownocala.com/parking-downtown/. Scheduled programs or events between these dates may have to be relocated to other downtown areas. In order to provide a premier event venue, a permanent built-in stage will be attached to the gazebo with accessible ramps and steps. Maintenance issues with the center star and sound system will be addressed and corrected. Delineated spaces within the space will be created, as well as clean lines of slight by altering vertical obstructions. Square gets a facelift The recent disasters in Oklahoma highlighted the need for law enforcement to have access to emergency contact information. Now as Floridians brace for the 2013 Hurricane Season and create disaster preparedness plans, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages you to make sure first responders know who to notify if you are in an emergency situation. The Department offers Emergency Contact Information registration online at https://services.flhsmv.gov/eci/ and in driver license offices (to include driver license offices operated by county tax collectors). Floridians who hold a current driver license or identification card can enter up to two contacts into the ECI database. Even if you have registered your information previously, it is a good idea to update your contacts periodically, especially if you or your contacts have moved. It takes only a few minutes, and there is no fee to register. The information you register is only available to law enforcement officers in the event of an emergency. Registering your emergency contact information can provide families and loved ones with added peace of mind, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. We are pleased that more than 7 million Floridians have registered their contacts, but that leaves nearly 10 million whose contact information is not available to police. The Florida Highway Patrol has run into situations where a person involved in a crash had registered their emergency contact information but failed to update it, said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. Outdated information can significantly delay our efforts to provide quick notification to families and loved ones. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol. To learn more about DHSMV and the services offered, visit www.flhsmv.gov, follow us on Twitter @FDHSMV or find us on Facebook. Make sure you update emergency contact information PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELRide for Hospice A bike ride to benefit Hospice was held recently. See story and more photos on Page 4.

A conversation among neighbors here in Fairfield Village led to discussion about two very different things that in some ways do seize the day. These two very different things show up in the late spring and one has a very definitely short life span. The dreaded love bug which is part of Florida life in the late spring and again in the late summer appeared for just a short time (seemingly) this year. That suited all of us just fine because they are very pesky little creatures. We discussed the urban myth that love bugs are the result of an experiment gone wrong at the University of Florida. That is just a myth as the love bugs were first described in 1940 by D. E. Hardy in Galveston, Texas. The majority of the insects were in Texas and Louisiana; and over the years, they migrated to other southern statesspecifically Florida where they can be quite a challenge in large numbers. Just washing them off ones car can be a bit disgusting. This year was not so very bad for whatever reason. On a pleasant note, there are the gorgeous wildflowers that have been so beautiful this year. The Florida DOT started planting the wildflowers along the highways in 1963. Since then, many of the seas of gorgeous color return each springtime. This year the waving seas of wonderful pinkish-purple are a delight along the highways in southwest Marion County. I have seen many motorists pointing toward the beautiful vistas. Something as simple as a wildflower can make the difference in changing a so-so day into one filled with the beauty of nature. We in Fairfield Village do notice the love bugs, but we realize they are ephemeral. So they are taken as part of life in the warm climate of Florida. On the other hand, the more lasting beauty of the wildflowers along the highways causes us seize the day as we stop and take in the simple beauty. This is one of the fantastic perks of living in Florida and especially in FFV, the lively place filled with lovely people. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, June 12, 2013 11 TO PLACE ACLASSIFIED AD, CALLToll Free 1-877-676-1403 MONDAYTHROUGH FRIDAY, 8:00 AM 5:00 PM Friday at 4:00 pm is the deadline for classified reader ads.

The Patriot Act was established after the 911 attacks. We will never forget the heinous crimes committed against our country. The question is this, Has the patriot act made us safer as a nation? The Patriot Act has given the government more freedom to invade any persons privacy in Any Place, USA, but has it made you safer? Do you feel safer because of the Patriot Act? Since the Patriot Act there have been countless episodes of violence that the new law has not prevented throughout the states. Military base shootings, office shootings, campus shootings, movie theatre shootings and more. For every terroristic act that has been stopped we celebrate as a country and thank those involved in preventing it. The Patriot Act needs to be edited. Our citizens should only have to fear criminals and terrorists, not government officials with a license to violate our civil liberties. There should be a compromise and a system of checks and balances that protect the freedom of Americans as well as keeping us safe.

Jillian has already obtained her AA degree from the College of Central Florida studying psychology. She plans to attend the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Below, the graduates checked in, then, at right, sat in the cool auditorium, waiting for the lineup and walk to the football field ... which was a little warmer. Read the classifieds I was minding my own business last week, which is the only business I am concerned about, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage posed a question. It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today, she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have, she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town. Then she smiled and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word free to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive. When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often. She smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item. When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. In my mind, the word mall is the acronym for May All Lose their Loot. Since I do not have that much loot to lose, I do not like going into a place designed to relieve me of my loot. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they take credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no, she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out. Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example: when a husband says the word run, he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy. For which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise. I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands filled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car. While driving home I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often. Then she began humming a song, Weve only just begun. I think this is her theme song; in fact, I am afraid it is. About half way home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun. A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3 KJV).

James Snyder Chabad Plans VIP Israel Experience March 2014 In March of 2014, Chabad of Marion County, led by Rabbi Yossi Hecht, will join other Chabad groups on the fourth Land and Spirit trip, described as a journey into the heart and soul of the Land of Israel. New this year, some participants will add an optional excursion to Poland before joining the rest of the group in Israel. In 2013, the name of the trip was changed to The Land & the Spirit Israel Experience. Its not really a mission, explained Rabbi Yossi. Some trips are designed to showcase a particular organizations accomplishments and encourage participation in their cause, but that isnt our purpose. The Land & the Spirit is all about exploring and experiencing the essence of this place we call Israel its past, its present, its people, and above all, what it means. Dr. Robert Bloom, an industrial psychologist who has been on a number Israel tours, said, We went to places and got to feel things Ive never felt before in Israel. Knowing that I could figuratively almost reach out and touch Abraham, Isaac and Jacob It made the things you read and learn about all so real. Visits to Israels holiest places, including Hevron, city of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, Rachels Tomb and Tzefat contrast with excursions that provide an insiders view of Israels achievements and challenges: an IDF paratrooper base, the Weizmann Institute, the Golan Heights. A visit to the Western Wall creates a time for personal reflection and the opportunity for a bar or bat mitzvah ceremony for those who had not celebrated theirs in the past. A full roster of top-caliber speakers drawn from all walks of Israeli life is made possible through Chabads extensive network of relationships with influential and people, said Rabbi Yossi. Previous year featured talks by Natan Sharansky and Benjamin Netanyahu, Rabbi Adin Even-Yisrael Steinsaltz and Israels chief rabbis, and newsmakers including Knesset members, activists, professors, and heads of Israeli military and intelligence. The trip is sponsored by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). Describing the trips schedule of educational tours of ancient and modern locations, Land & Spirit director Rabbi Boruch Cohen said it would be hard to find the combination of luxury and value that JLI offers in the Land & Spirit Israel Experience. While the trip is a 5star luxury experience from beginning to end, the cost is kept within reach of as many people as possible. The Land and Spirit Experience will take March 23 April 1, 2014.

Saturday, June 1 was a good day for Hospice of Marion County. Ocala Eye and Hospice partnered to have the annual Frank Polak Memorial bicycle ride. The ride has raised several thousand dollars for Hospice over the years. Just before the 8 a.m. start groups had an opportunity for team photos. The ride got under way as the Marion Sheriffs motorcycle unit led them off with lights and sirens. Several Sheriff cruisers were also present to run interference for the bicycle riders. Three different length rides were available depending on your ability. Riders with a $40 donation got them a fully staffed ride of 80, 62, or 30 miles. There was a rest stop with chairs, food with beverages.and portable shelter to keep the sun away. There was no rain which was good for narrow tires many riders had, Pastries were available inside the start for riders to stock up on calories for the long ride ahead of them. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, June 12, 2013 9 4Wednesday, June 12, 2013 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 000EZZO 6768 SW 80th Street Ocala 34476 352-861-6182 www.ccomc.org S UNDAY S ERVICES Sunday School . . . . . . . . 9:30 am Worship Service . . . . . . 10:30 am Weekly Activities Wednesday Bible Study . 7:00 pm S ENIOR P ASTOR D AVID B ELLOWS 000EF6C 8070 SW 60th Ave. Ocala, FL 34476 352-291-2080 SERVICES HOURS Sunday 9am, 11am, 6pm 1:30 Spanish Service Tuesday 7pm Spanish Service Wednesday Night 7pm Youth 7pm Friday 7pm Spanish Service WE WELCOME ALL!

Sheriffs deputies led the way at the Hospice bicycle ride. Fathers Day will soon be here; in fact, it is Sunday, the 16th. There are many opinions on the origin of this special day. Ms. Sonora Louise Smart Dodd is credited with originating Fathers Day in the United States. At the age of 27, Ms. Dodd was listening to a special Mothers Day sermon, when she began thinking there should be a day to honor fathers. She was especially close to her own father, William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran. Sonoras mother died during childbirth when Sonora was only 16. Her father took on the responsibility of raising the newborn baby along with five other children. Sonora felt much love and admiration for her father. She then began a campaign to have a special day to honor fathers. The idea was promoted by the Spokane, Washington Ministerial Association and the local YMCA. As a result of the effort of many people, Spokane celebrated its first Fathers Day on June 19, 1910. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson approved of the idea of a day to recognize fathers. Then in 1924, President Calvin Coolidge showed his support for such a day. Finally, in 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Fathers Day. In 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Fathers Day to be observed on the third Sunday of June. In 1974, at the Worlds Fair in Spokane, Ms. Dodd was honored for her contribution in establishing this day. For many of us this will be a day remembering our Dad; for others, perhaps you will spend the day with him, or at least make a phone call. Many years ago (back when to make a long distance phone call, you went through the operator), I read an interesting article about phone calls on Mothers Day and Fathers Day. A study revealed that there are more phone calls made on Mothers Day than any other day of the year; and there are more collect calls made on Fathers Day than any other day! I guess we still expected Dad to foot the bill! Following is a poem I found while doing some research, and I think it really describes a Dad.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Its time for all to honor dad F athers Day is a time to show appreciation and honor to fathers and those special persons who have been father figures, i.e., stepfather, brother, uncle, grandfather, or other. The first Fathers Day was officially observed on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington. The special day was started by a woman, Sonora Dodd, who was inspired to honor her own father, William Smart, a widower who was left to raise six children alone, following his wifes death during childbirth. The idea of a national Fathers Day gained support in 1924 by President Calvin Coolidge, and again in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Fathers Day. For some, this holiday is dreaded, ignored, or treated like any other day because there is no father in the home. This is a growing problem in society, But for many, it is a day to truly honor a person who has been a rock of stability in the home while that person was growing up. There are many stories about the duties and obligations of a father. One, about a famous athlete, stands out to us. In Idaho, in the Great Depression, a father who worked as a painter and a sheriff took his two boys out in the yard to play sports with them until dusk. Mother would come out and say, Youre tearing up the grass, his youngest son recalled. Were not raising grass, Dad would reply. Were raising boys. The youngest son, Harmon Killebrew, now has a plaque in the Baseball Hall of Fame. There is no such knowledge without love. It is truly heroic to be a father to a child. A father to a family. Being a father goes beyond a mans biological duties and functions. Being a father means to be this steadfast, strong individual, full of ideals and ready to stand by his principles. Why? Because he must be a living example to the people around him. He must be the epitome of a near-perfect existence. Someone who can live up to being that which he should be noted: the foundation of a home. As we celebrate Fathers Day this coming Sunday, June 16, we honor all fathers, grandfathers, husbands, brothers, sons, uncles, friends who have been blessed to be such living examples for us to emulate and to remember as sources of our strength. They are our inspiration and they are the foundations by which many of us, as individuals, draw our own characters. Remember to honor your father on this day at least with a call, if not more. And if your father is still around, thank him for all he has done, and be grateful that hes still with you. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest column Our privacy is no longer an optionBY GLENN MOLLETTE Recent news about cell phone giant Verizon is a bit disconcerting. Every phone record of every Verizon customer is now an open book to our government. Can we not call mom without it being the governments business? Is there no such thing as personal anymore? Alarmingly the answer is no. No one wants a terrorist living next door. We do not want people roaming our country looking for lives and buildings to destroy. Our FBI, CIA and military intelligence must be commended and praised for their efforts to prevent heinous acts from happening in our country. However, our liberty is at risk when anyone from the government can show up at any time and search through our homes, invade our personal property, invade our banking account information, go through our mail and family picture albums, or go through all of our computers to see every web page weve ever browsed. The books we read at the library, our newspaper subscriptions and what we bought at the grocery store is nobody elses business. I hear the argument If you arent hiding anything then what do you care? I care because, as a United States citizen, it is an invasion of our liberty. One invasion leads to another. The loss of freedom is slowly eroding in our country. The government is supposedly protecting you. Then one day we wake up in fear of making a move without government permission. Any invasion of our personal lives or privacy should go through proper channels and the legal process of being granted an investigative search warrant. In this scenario papers would have to be filled out explaining why such a search is necessary. Authorities who do such random searches must be held accountable for any damage done to the citizens home, family pictures, files, computers, clothes or any item that has been touched or mishandled in anyway. Authorities who search without just cause should be responsible for dry cleaning bills, carpet cleaning, painting and the purchase of new electronics if any of the electronics are damaged. If the suspicions end up true and the raided house ends us revealing someone who is plotting to hurt others then that changes the scenario. Those who search should never be allowed to destroy someones home and leave it in a state of disaster. When someone is suspected as being a threat to hurting anyone or suspected of being a terroristic threat to a community or our nation then of course everything must be done to determine what is going on and every precaution taken to save lives. The truth of the matter is that if the FBI invades a persons home and does a search and they find 50 guns it doesnt mean anything. Many people collect guns. If the person has told people about his plans to shoot people at the Reader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

I hope youre enjoying yourself. I know your bosses say that what you are doing is legal because a judge in a secret court signed off on it. But I havent heard anyone tell me why a secret court is legal. In America, arent our courts supposed to be open? Isnt that a part of freedom? Anyhow, Ill try to make things simple for you. My recent phone calls include some to my wifes workplace, some to my office and some to my two doctors. My wife has called her mother and at least two of our four children. Incoming calls are another matter. Since you have all the records there, can you tell me who some of the calls are coming from? Many times I get a call that says unknown on the Caller ID, and when I pick it up, theres no one there. Id like to know who is trying to reach me. I also get solicitation calls despite being on the do not call list. Can you trace some of those numbers for me so I can file complaints against them with the U.S. Attorneys office? As for my social media accounts, I know youre watching my Facebook contacts. Fact is, I have one friend who lives in another part of the world. I suppose that gets me on a list of suspects who is making foreign contacts, even though he is my cousin who I havent seen since the early 1960s. A lot of my other friends are also relatives. In the spirit of helping you, I want to let you know that I dont suspect any of them of terrorism. If you want to know what websites I visit (if you dont know already), let me Hello, analyst! Find anything interesting? Among Friends Jim Clark assure you that most of my time online is spent reading other newspapers (the ones that are free and let you read their stories) and websites concerning baseball, particularly the Mets. I suppose being a Mets fan makes you want to flag my account as suspicious, but I assure you Ive been that way since 1962, and I havent committed any terror activities in that time (although the Mets can drive you insane easily enough). As for Twitter, yes I have an account, but I use it only to follow people and organizations. I have a total of zero followers myself. Most of the people I follow are sports writers, but I am also linked to people from The Weather Channel, CNN, and one foreign entity, Pope Francis at the Vatican. Finally, if you want to make sure I dont take part in any terrorist activities in the air, feel free to put me on a no-fly list. Its been years since Ive flown, and I have absolutely no desire to do so, but if putting me on that list makes you happy, go right ahead. I would send you a copy of this column, but youre probably monitoring my keystrokes as I type it, so I wont waste my time transmitting it to you. Heres hoping you and yours have a nice day.

Here are some facts about hurricanes as compiled by hurricane-facts.com. The word hurricane comes from the Taino Native American word, hurucane, meaning evil spirit of the wind. The first time anyone flew into a hurricane happened in 1943 in the middle of World War II. A tropical storm is classified as a hurricane once winds goes up to 74 miles per hour or higher. Hurricanes are the only weather disasters that have been given their own names (The Weather Channel tried naming winter storms this past year, but it didnt seem to catch on with other news agencies). All hurricanes begin life in a warm moist atmosphere over tropical ocean waters. A typical hurricane can dump 6 inches to a foot of rain across a region. The most violent winds and heaviest rains take place in the eye wall, the ring of clouds and thunderstorms closely surrounding the eye. Every second, a large hurricane releases the energy of 10 atomic bombs. Hurricanes can also produce tornadoes. They are not as strong as regular tornadoes and last only a few minutes. Slow moving hurricanes produce more rainfall and can cause more damage from flooding than fastermoving, more powerful hurricanes. Hurricane Floyd was barely a category I hurricane, but it still managed to mow down 19 million trees and caused over a billion dollars in damage. Most people who die in hurricanes are killed by the towering walls of sea water that comes inland. In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricanes are generally known as typhoons. In the Indian Ocean they are called tropical cyclones. The man who first gave names to hurricanes was an Australian weather forecaster named C. Wragge in the early 1900s. The first hurricane of the year is given a name beginning with the A.Ž Hurricane season is from June to November when the seas are at their warmest and most humid, which are ripe conditions for a hurricane to develop. The planet Jupiter has a hurricane which has been going on for over 300 years. It can be seen as a red spot on the planet.

Here are some facts about hurricanes as compiled by hurricane-facts.com. The word hurricane comes from the Taino Native American word, hurucane, meaning evil spirit of the wind. The first time anyone flew into a hurricane happened in 1943 in the middle of World War II. A tropical storm is classified as a hurricane once winds goes up to 74 miles per hour or higher. Hurricanes are the only weather disasters that have been given their own names (The Weather Channel tried naming winter storms this past year, but it didnt seem to catch on with other news agencies). All hurricanes begin life in a warm moist atmosphere over tropical ocean waters. A typical hurricane can dump 6 inches to a foot of rain across a region. The most violent winds and heaviest rains take place in the eye wall, the ring of clouds and thunderstorms closely surrounding the eye. Every second, a large hurricane releases the energy of 10 atomic bombs. Hurricanes can also produce tornadoes. They are not as strong as regular tornadoes and last only a few minutes. Slow moving hurricanes produce more rainfall and can cause more damage from flooding than fastermoving, more powerful hurricanes. Hurricane Floyd was barely a category I hurricane, but it still managed to mow down 19 million trees and caused over a billion dollars in damage. Most people who die in hurricanes are killed by the towering walls of sea water that comes inland. In the Pacific Ocean, Hurricanes are generally known as typhoons. In the Indian Ocean they are called tropical cyclones. The man who first gave names to hurricanes was an Australian weather forecaster named C. Wragge in the early 1900s. The first hurricane of the year is given a name beginning with the A.Ž Hurricane season is from June to November when the seas are at their warmest and most humid, which are ripe conditions for a hurricane to develop. The planet Jupiter has a hurricane which has been going on for over 300 years. It can be seen as a red spot on the planet.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Its time for all to honor dad F athers Day is a time to show appreciation and honor to fathers and those special persons who have been father figures, i.e., stepfather, brother, uncle, grandfather, or other. The first Fathers Day was officially observed on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington. The special day was started by a woman, Sonora Dodd, who was inspired to honor her own father, William Smart, a widower who was left to raise six children alone, following his wifes death during childbirth. The idea of a national Fathers Day gained support in 1924 by President Calvin Coolidge, and again in 1966 when President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Fathers Day. For some, this holiday is dreaded, ignored, or treated like any other day because there is no father in the home. This is a growing problem in society, But for many, it is a day to truly honor a person who has been a rock of stability in the home while that person was growing up. There are many stories about the duties and obligations of a father. One, about a famous athlete, stands out to us. In Idaho, in the Great Depression, a father who worked as a painter and a sheriff took his two boys out in the yard to play sports with them until dusk. Mother would come out and say, Youre tearing up the grass, his youngest son recalled. Were not raising grass, Dad would reply. Were raising boys. The youngest son, Harmon Killebrew, now has a plaque in the Baseball Hall of Fame. There is no such knowledge without love. It is truly heroic to be a father to a child. A father to a family. Being a father goes beyond a mans biological duties and functions. Being a father means to be this steadfast, strong individual, full of ideals and ready to stand by his principles. Why? Because he must be a living example to the people around him. He must be the epitome of a near-perfect existence. Someone who can live up to being that which he should be noted: the foundation of a home. As we celebrate Fathers Day this coming Sunday, June 16, we honor all fathers, grandfathers, husbands, brothers, sons, uncles, friends who have been blessed to be such living examples for us to emulate and to remember as sources of our strength. They are our inspiration and they are the foundations by which many of us, as individuals, draw our own characters. Remember to honor your father on this day at least with a call, if not more. And if your father is still around, thank him for all he has done, and be grateful that hes still with you. O ur M essage PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGAN REGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOST EDITOR: JIM CLARK Messenger WEST MARION Editorial Guest column Our privacy is no longer an optionBY GLENN MOLLETTE Recent news about cell phone giant Verizon is a bit disconcerting. Every phone record of every Verizon customer is now an open book to our government. Can we not call mom without it being the governments business? Is there no such thing as personal anymore? Alarmingly the answer is no. No one wants a terrorist living next door. We do not want people roaming our country looking for lives and buildings to destroy. Our FBI, CIA and military intelligence must be commended and praised for their efforts to prevent heinous acts from happening in our country. However, our liberty is at risk when anyone from the government can show up at any time and search through our homes, invade our personal property, invade our banking account information, go through our mail and family picture albums, or go through all of our computers to see every web page weve ever browsed. The books we read at the library, our newspaper subscriptions and what we bought at the grocery store is nobody elses business. I hear the argument If you arent hiding anything then what do you care? I care because, as a United States citizen, it is an invasion of our liberty. One invasion leads to another. The loss of freedom is slowly eroding in our country. The government is supposedly protecting you. Then one day we wake up in fear of making a move without government permission. Any invasion of our personal lives or privacy should go through proper channels and the legal process of being granted an investigative search warrant. In this scenario papers would have to be filled out explaining why such a search is necessary. Authorities who do such random searches must be held accountable for any damage done to the citizens home, family pictures, files, computers, clothes or any item that has been touched or mishandled in anyway. Authorities who search without just cause should be responsible for dry cleaning bills, carpet cleaning, painting and the purchase of new electronics if any of the electronics are damaged. If the suspicions end up true and the raided house ends us revealing someone who is plotting to hurt others then that changes the scenario. Those who search should never be allowed to destroy someones home and leave it in a state of disaster. When someone is suspected as being a threat to hurting anyone or suspected of being a terroristic threat to a community or our nation then of course everything must be done to determine what is going on and every precaution taken to save lives. The truth of the matter is that if the FBI invades a persons home and does a search and they find 50 guns it doesnt mean anything. Many people collect guns.

I hope youre enjoying yourself. I know your bosses say that what you are doing is legal because a judge in a secret court signed off on it. But I havent heard anyone tell me why a secret court is legal. In America, arent our courts supposed to be open? Isnt that a part of freedom? Anyhow, Ill try to make things simple for you. My recent phone calls include some to my wifes workplace, some to my office and some to my two doctors. My wife has called her mother and at least two of our four children. Incoming calls are another matter. Since you have all the records there, can you tell me who some of the calls are coming from? Many times I get a call that says unknown on the Caller ID, and when I pick it up, theres no one there. Id like to know who is trying to reach me. I also get solicitation calls despite being on the do not call list. Can you trace some of those numbers for me so I can file complaints against them with the U.S. Attorneys office? As for my social media accounts, I know youre watching my Facebook contacts. Fact is, I have one friend who lives in another part of the world. I suppose that gets me on a list of suspects who is making foreign contacts, even though he is my cousin who I havent seen since the early 1960s. A lot of my other friends are also relatives. In the spirit of helping you, I want to let you know that I dont suspect any of them of terrorism. If you want to know what websites I visit (if you dont know already), let me Hello, analyst! Find anything interesting? Among Friends Jim Clark assure you that most of my time online is spent reading other newspapers (the ones that are free and let you read their stories) and websites concerning baseball, particularly the Mets. I suppose being a Mets fan makes you want to flag my account as suspicious, but I assure you Ive been that way since 1962, and I havent committed any terror activities in that time (although the Mets can drive you insane easily enough). As for Twitter, yes I have an account, but I use it only to follow people and organizations. I have a total of zero followers myself. Most of the people I follow are sports writers, but I am also linked to people from The Weather Channel, CNN, and one foreign entity, Pope Francis at the Vatican. Finally, if you want to make sure I dont take part in any terrorist activities in the air, feel free to put me on a no-fly list. Its been years since Ive flown, and I have absolutely no desire to do so, but if putting me on that list makes you happy, go right ahead. I would send you a copy of this column, but youre probably monitoring my keystrokes as I type it, so I wont waste my time transmitting it to you. Heres hoping you and yours have a nice day.

Saturday, June 1 was a good day for Hospice of Marion County. Ocala Eye and Hospice partnered to have the annual Frank Polak Memorial bicycle ride. The ride has raised several thousand dollars for Hospice over the years. Just before the 8 a.m. start groups had an opportunity for team photos. The ride got under way as the Marion Sheriffs motorcycle unit led them off with lights and sirens. Several Sheriff cruisers were also present to run interference for the bicycle riders. Three different length rides were available depending on your ability. Riders with a $40 donation got them a fully staffed ride of 80, 62, or 30 miles. There was a rest stop with chairs, food with beverages.and portable shelter to keep the sun away. There was no rain which was good for narrow tires many riders had, Pastries were available inside the start for riders to stock up on calories for the long ride ahead of them. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, June 12, 2013 9 4Wednesday, June 12, 2013 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger 000EZZO 6768 SW 80th Street Ocala 34476 352-861-6182 www.ccomc.org S UNDAY S ERVICES Sunday School . . . . . . . . 9:30 am Worship Service . . . . . . 10:30 am Weekly Activities Wednesday Bible Study . 7:00 pm S ENIOR P ASTOR D AVID B ELLOWS 000EF6C 8070 SW 60th Ave. Ocala, FL 34476 352-291-2080 SERVICES HOURS Sunday 9am, 11am, 6pm 1:30 Spanish Service Tuesday 7pm Spanish Service Wednesday Night 7pm Youth 7pm Friday 7pm Spanish Service WE WELCOME ALL!

Sheriffs deputies led the way at the Hospice bicycle ride. Fathers Day will soon be here; in fact, it is Sunday, the 16th. There are many opinions on the origin of this special day. Ms. Sonora Louise Smart Dodd is credited with originating Fathers Day in the United States. At the age of 27, Ms. Dodd was listening to a special Mothers Day sermon, when she began thinking there should be a day to honor fathers. She was especially close to her own father, William Jackson Smart, a Civil War veteran. Sonoras mother died during childbirth when Sonora was only 16. Her father took on the responsibility of raising the newborn baby along with five other children. Sonora felt much love and admiration for her father. She then began a campaign to have a special day to honor fathers. The idea was promoted by the Spokane, Washington Ministerial Association and the local YMCA. As a result of the effort of many people, Spokane celebrated its first Fathers Day on June 19, 1910. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson approved of the idea of a day to recognize fathers. Then in 1924, President Calvin Coolidge showed his support for such a day. Finally, in 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Fathers Day. In 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Fathers Day to be observed on the third Sunday of June. In 1974, at the Worlds Fair in Spokane, Ms. Dodd was honored for her contribution in establishing this day. For many of us this will be a day remembering our Dad; for others, perhaps you will spend the day with him, or at least make a phone call. Many years ago (back when to make a long distance phone call, you went through the operator), I read an interesting article about phone calls on Mothers Day and Fathers Day. A study revealed that there are more phone calls made on Mothers Day than any other day of the year; and there are more collect calls made on Fathers Day than any other day! I guess we still expected Dad to foot the bill! Following is a poem I found while doing some research, and I think it really describes a Dad.

Jillian has already obtained her AA degree from the College of Central Florida studying psychology. She plans to attend the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Below, the graduates checked in, then, at right, sat in the cool auditorium, waiting for the lineup and walk to the football field ... which was a little warmer. Read the classifieds I was minding my own business last week, which is the only business I am concerned about, when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage posed a question. It is in the area of questions I feel the most inadequate. Maybe it is because I have not heard all the questions yet, but I think I have come close. I should know that any question that comes from my wife has a hidden agenda. Usually, she asks questions that have no answers. Lets go out for lunch today, she said rather chipperly. Experience should have taught me that when she is chipper, I am in trouble, because I am always the chippee. We have, she explained, some gift cards for a restaurant across town. Then she smiled and that should have been a giveaway for me. When you mention lunch, and when you add the word free to it, I lose all sense of proportion and sanity, if I had any. Actually, to be honest about everything, it does not take much to scratch between my ears and get me purring. Then she threw in a perk that sold me completely on the idea. I love perks. Ill drive. When you think you have heard every trick in the book, somebody writes a new book. Usually, I forget some old trick that she has played, and here was an old one she was playing on me again. On the way to the restaurant, I had a little uneasy feeling, but as we sat down and began ordering, all suspicion faded into thin air. It was a scrumptious lunch and we both enjoyed being together, carefree and enjoying the ambiance. When the check came I casually said, You know, we ought to do this more often. She smiled and nodded her head. When we got into the car, she said somewhat nonchalantly, Oh, by the way, since were here I need to run into the mall and pick up an item. When I heard those words, I froze. Not the mall! I hate shopping, especially at the mall. In my mind, the word mall is the acronym for May All Lose their Loot. Since I do not have that much loot to lose, I do not like going into a place designed to relieve me of my loot. Every time I walk down the center of the mall, I feel eyes glaring at me and piercing to the core of my wallet trying to suck out all my money. And, by the way, they take credit cards. Boy, do they take credit cards. When we parked at the mall parking lot, I indicated I would stay in the car and wait for her. Oh, no, she exclaimed, come on in, you need the exercise. Im just going to run in and run out. Here is where the language differential between husbands and wives shows itself. Unless you are familiar with English with a feminine twist, you are going to get trapped every time. For example: when a husband says the word run, he is referring to speed. When his wife uses the same word it means she is going to run into every store in sight within the mall with one agenda, and that is to buy. For which I can say bye-bye to my money. Why dont local universities offer a degree in wifeology? They have degrees in everything else, why not here where it would be most useful. By the time I reach the equivalent of a doctorate in wifeology, I would be too old to do any good with it. Those who insist there is no difference between a man and a woman have never been married to a woman. Husbands get into trouble assuming their wife is just like them and thinks just like them. Exiting the shopping mall my wife looked at me, smiled and said, Now, wasnt that good exercise. I nodded as I walked to the car with both my hands filled with recently purchased items from the shopping mall. Now I know my part of the exercise was hauling her purchases to the car. Halfway to the car I had to stop and catch my breath and wondered if I would really make it to the car. Come on, were done shopping for the day. Lets get to the car. While driving home I was afraid my wife was going to wear out her smile. This has been a great day. Well have to do this more often. Then she began humming a song, Weve only just begun. I think this is her theme song; in fact, I am afraid it is. About half way home, I had a wonderful thought. It was a good day. I can always earn more money, but I can never get another wife quite as nice as the one I have. Then I began humming, Weve only just begun. A verse of Scripture began playing in my mind as we continued our journey home. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:3 KJV). Driving into the driveway, I realized this was not our final destination. God has a wonderful place prepared for those who have put their trust and faith in Him. No tricks about it. The Rev. James L.

James Snyder Chabad Plans VIP Israel Experience March 2014 In March of 2014, Chabad of Marion County, led by Rabbi Yossi Hecht, will join other Chabad groups on the fourth Land and Spirit trip, described as a journey into the heart and soul of the Land of Israel. New this year, some participants will add an optional excursion to Poland before joining the rest of the group in Israel. In 2013, the name of the trip was changed to The Land & the Spirit Israel Experience. Its not really a mission, explained Rabbi Yossi. Some trips are designed to showcase a particular organizations accomplishments and encourage participation in their cause, but that isnt our purpose. The Land & the Spirit is all about exploring and experiencing the essence of this place we call Israel its past, its present, its people, and above all, what it means. Dr. Robert Bloom, an industrial psychologist who has been on a number Israel tours, said, We went to places and got to feel things Ive never felt before in Israel. Knowing that I could figuratively almost reach out and touch Abraham, Isaac and Jacob It made the things you read and learn about all so real. Visits to Israels holiest places, including Hevron, city of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, Rachels Tomb and Tzefat contrast with excursions that provide an insiders view of Israels achievements and challenges: an IDF paratrooper base, the Weizmann Institute, the Golan Heights. A visit to the Western Wall creates a time for personal reflection and the opportunity for a bar or bat mitzvah ceremony for those who had not celebrated theirs in the past. A full roster of top-caliber speakers drawn from all walks of Israeli life is made possible through Chabads extensive network of relationships with influential and people, said Rabbi Yossi. Previous year featured talks by Natan Sharansky and Benjamin Netanyahu, Rabbi Adin Even-Yisrael Steinsaltz and Israels chief rabbis, and newsmakers including Knesset members, activists, professors, and heads of Israeli military and intelligence. The trip is sponsored by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI). Describing the trips schedule of educational tours of ancient and modern locations, Land & Spirit director Rabbi Boruch Cohen said it would be hard to find the combination of luxury and value that JLI offers in the Land & Spirit Israel Experience. While the trip is a 5star luxury experience from beginning to end, the cost is kept within reach of as many people as possible. The Land and Spirit Experience will take March 23 April 1, 2014. For information, please contact Rabbi Yossi and visit www.landandspirit.org.

A conversation among neighbors here in Fairfield Village led to discussion about two very different things that in some ways do seize the day. These two very different things show up in the late spring and one has a very definitely short life span. The dreaded love bug which is part of Florida life in the late spring and again in the late summer appeared for just a short time (seemingly) this year. That suited all of us just fine because they are very pesky little creatures. We discussed the urban myth that love bugs are the result of an experiment gone wrong at the University of Florida. That is just a myth as the love bugs were first described in 1940 by D. E. Hardy in Galveston, Texas. The majority of the insects were in Texas and Louisiana; and over the years, they migrated to other southern statesspecifically Florida where they can be quite a challenge in large numbers. Just washing them off ones car can be a bit disgusting. This year was not so very bad for whatever reason. On a pleasant note, there are the gorgeous wildflowers that have been so beautiful this year. The Florida DOT started planting the wildflowers along the highways in 1963. Since then, many of the seas of gorgeous color return each springtime. This year the waving seas of wonderful pinkish-purple are a delight along the highways in southwest Marion County. I have seen many motorists pointing toward the beautiful vistas. Something as simple as a wildflower can make the difference in changing a so-so day into one filled with the beauty of nature. We in Fairfield Village do notice the love bugs, but we realize they are ephemeral. So they are taken as part of life in the warm climate of Florida. On the other hand, the more lasting beauty of the wildflowers along the highways causes us seize the day as we stop and take in the simple beauty. This is one of the fantastic perks of living in Florida and especially in FFV, the lively place filled with lovely people. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, June 12, 2013 11 TO PLACE ACLASSIFIED AD, CALLToll Free 1-877-676-1403 MONDAYTHROUGH FRIDAY, 8:00 AM 5:00 PM Friday at 4:00 pm is the deadline for classified reader ads.

The Patriot Act was established after the 911 attacks. We will never forget the heinous crimes committed against our country. The question is this, Has the patriot act made us safer as a nation? The Patriot Act has given the government more freedom to invade any persons privacy in Any Place, USA, but has it made you safer? Do you feel safer because of the Patriot Act? Since the Patriot Act there have been countless episodes of violence that the new law has not prevented throughout the states. Military base shootings, office shootings, campus shootings, movie theatre shootings and more. For every terroristic act that has been stopped we celebrate as a country and thank those involved in preventing it. The Patriot Act needs to be edited. Our citizens should only have to fear criminals and terrorists, not government officials with a license to violate our civil liberties. There should be a compromise and a system of checks and balances that protect the freedom of Americans as well as keeping us safe.

More photos on Page 3 PHOTOS BY JIM CLARK A new-and-improved Downtown Square is coming! Work has started on the historic heart of Ocala, which is undergoing minor improvements, which are expected to be complete by Oct. 1. The renovation process will likely not cause significant interference with daily pedestrian movement and traffic circulation. Sidewalks and the frontage road will remain open, except during demolition operations, construction work or loading/unloading of equipment. Impact on parking will be minimal, with a multitude of public parking still available: http://www.feeldowntownocala.com/parking-downtown/. Scheduled programs or events between these dates may have to be relocated to other downtown areas. In order to provide a premier event venue, a permanent built-in stage will be attached to the gazebo with accessible ramps and steps. Maintenance issues with the center star and sound system will be addressed and corrected. Delineated spaces within the space will be created, as well as clean lines of slight by altering vertical obstructions. Square gets a facelift The recent disasters in Oklahoma highlighted the need for law enforcement to have access to emergency contact information. Now as Floridians brace for the 2013 Hurricane Season and create disaster preparedness plans, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles encourages you to make sure first responders know who to notify if you are in an emergency situation. The Department offers Emergency Contact Information registration online at https://services.flhsmv.gov/eci/ and in driver license offices (to include driver license offices operated by county tax collectors). Floridians who hold a current driver license or identification card can enter up to two contacts into the ECI database. Even if you have registered your information previously, it is a good idea to update your contacts periodically, especially if you or your contacts have moved. It takes only a few minutes, and there is no fee to register. The information you register is only available to law enforcement officers in the event of an emergency. Registering your emergency contact information can provide families and loved ones with added peace of mind, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. We are pleased that more than 7 million Floridians have registered their contacts, but that leaves nearly 10 million whose contact information is not available to police. The Florida Highway Patrol has run into situations where a person involved in a crash had registered their emergency contact information but failed to update it, said FHP Director Col. David Brierton. Outdated information can significantly delay our efforts to provide quick notification to families and loved ones. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. The Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the efficient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol. To learn more about DHSMV and the services offered, visit www.flhsmv.gov, follow us on Twitter @FDHSMV or find us on Facebook. Make sure you update emergency contact information PHOTO BY MIKE ROPPELRide for Hospice A bike ride to benefit Hospice was held recently. See story and more photos on Page 4.
