Quail Meadows grand marshal needs a parade escort Can you believe that its almost July? They always say, Time flies when youre having fun, so we must be having a blast! With July approaching we are getting ready for a fabulous 4th of July celebration in Quail Meadow. Do we have someone who would volunteer to be an escort for the Grand Marshal of the parade; either in a convertible or a golf cart. If interested, please call Marion Gartman. Several residents have signed up to be in the parade. There is still time to get in the parade with your car, truck, cart, bicycle, lawn mower, or just walk. How about some of our groups, such as the card players, Mah Jongg group, Red Hatters, ceramics, etc. getting your group together and be a part of the parade? Please call Marion Gartman and let her know if you plan to participate in the parade. Prizes will be given to the best decorated conveyance. The parade will begin at the clubhouse at 9 a.m., tour the neighborhood, and then return to the clubhouse for refreshments. That is just the beginning Quail Meadow Carolyn Slocumb Above and below, pictures from the Ladies Luncheon. of the celebration. We will have a chicken dinner at 1 p.m. (chicken from Lees Chicken). Tickets, for a $3 donation, are still available from Carol Sjogren and Marie Schneider. Entertainment during the dinner will be provided by Dave Atkinson. Come join us for a day of fun at Quail Meadow. A group of 18 women enjoyed the monthly luncheon at Stone Creek Grille. It was good to see some of our new residents with us. The food was great, especially the bread pudding with bourbon sauce! We voted to continue the monthly luncheons during the summer (after all, we still need to eat). Mark your calendars for July 12 which will be the next luncheon. We will meet for lunch at Blancas Restaurant in Ocala Palms. Beware of the scams that seem to be multiplying. Some water companies are calling wanting to test your water supply. They try to scare you into thinking our water is contaminated: it isnt! If you read the flyer in this months water bill you saw the report on our water supply that verified it is safe. Dont be taken in by these scam artists. A few weeks ago I gave you the number to call to register your telephones (landline and cell) on the National Do Not Call List. Florida also has a do not call list that is effective on July 1. To subscribe to the Florida Do Not Call Program, register your phones by going to their web site: www.800helpfla.com, or by calling 1-800-435-7352. This registration is good for five years. The National Do Not Call List can be reached by calling 1-888-382-1222, or you can register on line at www.donotcall.gov. By registering with both places you should see a decrease in the number of annoying calls. If they continue after you have registered, you can file a complaint. Because of July 4th, early deadlines the next two weeks for the Messenger Damage to a vehicle has resulted in the arrest of a Southwest Ocala man. Dale Small, 61, of Southwest 77th Court, was accused of burglary and criminal mischief of a vehicle belonging to a man in the 7600 block of Southwest 2nd Street. Responding to a burglary call, the deputy met with the cars owner, who said he had observed damage to his vehicle. He said he had an altercation with Small. About 10 p.m. on the night of June 23, he returned to his car and found that the steering column of the SUV was broken. Witnesses told deputies that Small had broken into the car. A deputy then contacted Small at his home, read him his rights, and Small allegedly confessed. It was revealed that the SUV was unlocked at the time of the damage. According to the report, the vehicle could not be shifted properly. Small was booked early on June 24, and was released after posting $4,000 bond a couple of hours later.

This is especially important when taking pictures of children. ALWAYS get the parents permission to run the photo. Finally, remember the old editors adage: Pictures show action, not people. While its nice to get a lot of peoples faces in the picture, there should also be some action shots, some people doing something, not just standing there. Action shots will attract the casual reader to the photo much quicker than just a lineup of people. Hopefully, this will help you get your photos to us in more usable fashion. And, we emphasize, we do want as many pictures as possible. Please keep them coming.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. PHOTOScontinued from Page 8 Answers to this weeks puzzles Recently several of us in Fairfield Village were discussing one of the issues of significant concern to many of usmedical care. While we had many comments that were addressed toward questions about Medicare, Obamacare, and just care in general, we were happy to find that we had one common denominator that was very positive. We all share the same excellent care from a unique physician here in Ocala, Dr, Cesar Gamero. Dr. Gamero and his assistant, Natasha Aguilar, work from a most friendly office in the TimberRidge Medical Complex. The office does not have the cold atmosphere of many medical offices. When one enters the waiting area, he or she is met with a warm and friendly greeting by Natasha who seems to know each patient as a personal friend. Any trepidation is soon dispelled by the smile and assuring words of this lovely, competent professional lady. I recently talked with Natasha about her career. She came to the central Florida area after graduating from the nursing program at St. John the Baptist Hospital in West Islip, N.Y. in 2002. Previously, she was the night nurse in Gainesville at the Alachua County Jail. She became Dr. Gameros assistant when she found out through her family (who were his patients) that the job was open. As the single mom of two children and her adopted niece as well, this position is much more satisfying. Her children, Jasmine (11), Deven (8), and Arianna (4) are all very proud of their mom who is fluent in both Spanish and English which is a great help to many patients. Natasha has tremendous respect for Dr. Gamero. She says that he is adamant about having a one-onone relationship with his patients and works with the whole person. Dr. Gamero does not work with an associate doctor because he wants to make sure that there is always strict continuity of care. He spends a great deal of time getting to know his patients, their habits and their lifestyle taking all these things into consideration with their diagnoses and appropriate treatments. The father of three children, Dr. Gamero is originally from Lima, Peru. His mother always encouraged him toward medicine, as did his father who was a pharmaceutical representative. Ironically, Dr. Gameros first love was music, but he realized the significance of a medical career and tabled his musical Special thanks to an excellent local physician Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal ambitions. He still loves musiche has a great singing voiceand enjoys his extensive music collection. His sister is a psychologist and his brother is a civil engineer. Obviously, he is part of an extremely successful family. After graduating from San Augustin National University and San Marcos National University in Arequipo, Peru, Dr. Gamero did his post-doctoral work at Hospital Episcopal San Lucas in Ponce, Puerto Rico. In June of 2001, he received a first place award for his presentation at the 38th Scientific Activity Americo Serro. He worked as a Critical Care Physician and Emergency Room Physician in Coama, Puerto Rico. Later he practiced in both Texas and Arizona before deciding to come to Ocala. Needless to say, we, his patients are so very glad that he made that decision. Other than being an exceptional internal medicine professional, Dr. Gamero is a unique physician in that he has hospital privileges at all three of our local hospitals. He regularly sees his patients who are hospitalized himself. That is most unusual these days and so very appreciated by his patients. As I checked his profile on local internet evaluations, I foundnot at all to my surprisethat Dr. Gamero has a 4.0 star rating in all categories. That is quite an accomplishment! Kudos from several of his patients reiterate how highly his patients think of him. Sandy Norris said: Moving permanently to Ocala posed many problems but a primary concern was finding good medical care. How fortunate it was that Dr. Gamero was both recommended and was also in our insurance plan. We could not have found a better doctor. He truly cares! Patients have his full attention and never have the feeling of being shoved through. Each appointment ends with his questioning if we have any more concerns. What a joy it is to have him listen to us and discuss possible treatments. He is a true M.D. Another Fairfield neighbor said: I will admit that I have not always had complete faith in the medical community because of some very bad experiences when I was younger. Now, I have a totally different feeling about doctors because Dr. Gamero takes the time to listen to me and to answer all my questions. To me, he is almost like a psychologist and medical doctor all in one. Katherine and Augustin Stenz said: Since we moved here from New York, we have been so pleased with Dr. Gameros care. He is one of the finest doctors we have ever seen. He is so personable and attentive to his patients. Another important thinghe always calls us right back if we need him. T. F said: I feel like a real person to Dr. Gameronot just money in his pocket. He is really awesome. I have congenital heart failure as well as other conditions and I am totally confident in his care for me. He is one of a kind. As the comments show, Dr. Cesar Gamero is regarded as a most unusually caring and professional physician. We who are his patients feel especially blessed and want to thank him for being the doctor who really cares for his patients in his own unique way. From Fairfield Village, the lively place filled with lovely people we send wishes for health and happiness to all our Central Florida neighbors. Dr. Cesar Aguilar and his assistant, Natasha Aguilar, have a special rapport with their patients who greatly appreciate the individual attention given by these two fine medical professionals to all those in their care.

I am a realist in a modified definition of that word and I usually take things as they come. My past week, however, was an open commentary on Murphys Law. Offhand I am not quite sure who come up with this concept, but they must have had a week somewhat like my week this past week. If I had it within me, I would establish Snyders Law which simply stated means, what can go right will go right. Then all would be right with the world. Well, except for those who are lefthanded. It all started Monday when I had an early morning meeting. I meant to set my alarm clock for 6 a.m. but for some reason I set it for 6 p.m. and overslept. Have you ever noticed when you are 15 minutes late in the morning the day ends up being 90 minutes late? Do not ask me how that happens. Ask Murphy. In the mail, I got a notice from the bank that I was overdrawn and they were charging me an insufficient fund fee. Well, I was furious. After all, I know how to add and subtract and I know how to take care of my bank account. I was about ready to call them and give them a piece of my mind when I noticed, how it happened I will never know, I forgot to include two checks I had written last week. I hate when that happens. My whole checkbook is now screwed up. I think it might be easier for me just to close my account and start all over again. It was Tuesday but I had to go across town and endure all that traffic. It is not my favorite place to drive, I will tell you right now. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens. I turned the key several times and then, I do not know why I did it, but I glanced at the gas gauge and the arrow was pointing way beyond the E. My gas tank was about as empty as my bank account. It is bad to run out of gas, but the worst thing for me about running out of gas is calling the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and asking her for help. I would walk 100 miles not to tell her I am out of gas. She always comes and bails me out. However, for the next six months I am reminded and reminded and reminded to put gas in my tank. Thursday also had its issues. My wife wanted me to go to the store and pick up something and for some reason, I cannot remember it now, I used her car. Maybe it was because I did not want to run out of gas! I got to the store, paid for my purchase, came out and tried finding my truck. I walked up and down and my truck was nowhere in sight. The only thing I could think of at the time was that somebody had stolen my truck. I thought about calling the police, and then I thought better and decided I would call my wife first. You know what it is like when your wife hears something secondhand. And so I called her. I cant find my truck, I said trying to keep my voice as calm as possible not to get her upset, I think somebody stole it. Should I call the police? Silence on the phone. Then I heard her say in a very calm voice, Whoever stole your truck parked it in our driveway. I then remembered I was driving her car. I tried to chuckle within but I knew that this incident would hang in our house for months to come and I have Mr. Murphy to thank for that. It was such a horrific week and I was so deep in trouble with my Better Half, I decided to take her out Friday night for a nice meal on the town. I took her to her favorite restaurant and we ordered our supper, then set back and kind of sighed the week away. Maybe all that could go wrong has gone wrong and the week was about to turn around. We chatted; I tried to skew the conversation away from running out of gas and misplacing my truck. Then the waitress came with our meal. I was ready to settle down, enjoy a scrumptious meal and end the week on a happy note. The waitress set my wifes plate in front of her and she smiled. Then the waitress set my plate in front of me and I freaked out. For some reason the waitress got my order mixed up with somebody elses order and right in the middle of my plate was a pile of broccoli. The only hope I have is that it cannot get any worse than this. I think David, the psalmist, understood this when he wrote, ... weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalm 30:5 KJV). As bad as it gets, as a Christian I have some great things to look forward to in Jesus Christ.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Justice system fails again The criminal justice system in Florida has failed another child. Cherish Lynn Perrywinkle, whose body was found over the weekend near a north Jacksonville church, was an 8-year-old who was kidnapped from a Walmart. The man who allegedly took her was a convicted sex offender who had just been released from prison a few weeks earlier. Records show he was charged with a sex offense against a child all the way back in 1977, and there were other charges since then. He had pleaded guilty to impersonating a child welfare worker and had gone to prison. But here he was roaming the streets of Jacksonville after he was let loose. He preyed upon a gullible single mother who wanted a new dress for her daughter, who was scheduled to fly out the next morning to visit her father out west. He allegedly befriended her and told her that he and his wife would help. Published reports indicate that there was no evidence anyone else was involved. He reportedly offered to take the little girl to McDonalds at another part of Walmart for a hamburger. The mother agreed and the girl was never seen alive again. An alert police officer spotted the suspects van on the Interstate the next morning, and he was apprehended, but by then it was too late. The deception Donald Smith used to gain control of the girl was planned and devious. Yet, the mother ignored the warning signs and let her little girl walk away with him. The alleged killer was taken to jail, and was being held, thankfully, with no bond. If prosecutors dont find a way to keep this guy off the streets forever, then our justice system is broken beyond repair. Keeping him out of society will come too late for Cherish (her name was misspelled originally by police), but at least other children wont be at risk. And parents and grandparents, for Petes sake, keep an eye on your children. Dont be gullible enough to allow them to go away with a stranger, even it its just to the other side of a store. You might regret that move for the rest of your life. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest column Secrets and spiesBY BOB FRANKEN For those who turn to this space for the highly creative idea in the face of controversy, youre in luck once again. The issue is massive government cyberspying on Americans, largely by using a puppet court to force Google, Facebook and the others to turn over their data about our so-called private lives. So heres the brainstorm: Why not get rid of the middleman and nationalize all of these companies, make them an official part of our national-intelligence apparatus. We can call the entire thing Snoople. This, of course, is the polar opposite of an earlier scheme, which would be to privatize our espionage operations. The flaw with that one is that to a large extent we already have, since so much of the work is done by contractors like Booz Allen Hamilton. Thats the giant consulting firm whose proudest achievement was hiring Edward Snowden. How were they to know that they were employing such a versatile young man, one who was not only skilled in the technical aspects of highly classified operations, but also brilliant in the equally dark art of public relations. Snowden, after all, has made Booz Allen a household word and finally given government prying into its own citizens lives the attention it deserves. Dick Cheney re-emerged to appear on Fox News (where else) to defend these operations as very important to gather intelligence on your enemies and stop the attack before it is launched. If that sounds familiar, its because hes offered the same justification for torture. He made it clear that he has little regard for President Barack Obama, but they are in the same whatever it takes camp. Right there with them is Republican Congressman Peter King, whose latest gem is to argue that journalists (Full disclosure: I am one) who publish classified information should be charged as criminals. Apparently, some of those at the Justice Department agree. One of their agents who was investigating a leak was able to get a judges permission to track Fox News reporter James Rosen after filing an affidavit charging Rosen had aided, abetted or conspired with his source, in violation of the law while going through the normal routine of preparing a story. Dont our leaders have to take an oath to either preserve protect and defend or support the Constitution? What part of the First and Fourth Amendments dont they understand? Apparently, the freedom of the press and prohibitions against unreasonable searches and seizures concepts are a bit too complicated for them. Lets pause right here. This is when well hear a chorus of apologists in unison chanting that its just not that simple, that in these dangerous times there must be a balance. They certainly are correct about the mortal threat from terrorists, but lets dust off that Benjamin Franklin quote that He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither. That says it all. Democracy can be a pain. It requires a special ingenuity to protect our unique experiment in freedom. The Constitution is more than a nicety. This dilemma deserves our full attention and study. In the future, if you want to research these issues, you can Snoople them.

From time to time, we try to write something that will make it easier for people to get their news into our newspapers. Today, were going to concentrate on pictures. Over the past several months, weve suddenly had a large increase in the number of photos submitted electronically that are almost unusable. There are several reasons, and well break them down, but for the most part, concentrate on No. 1. First, there are continuing problems with the size of the photos. Most digital cameras have a pixel setting, and the owners manual will tell you that by setting it smaller, you can get more pictures on a single memory card. Thats a true statement, but the writers of the owners manual obviously didnt consult newspapers when they printed those directions. If you set your cameras pixels to get the most pictures on your card, chances are your pictures are going to be unusable in the newspaper. When we tell people their pictures are too small, they automatically think they can use a program to make them bigger. But that wont solve the issue. The only way to make those small pictures more usable is to increase the pixel size in the camera BEFORE the pictures are taken. Afterward, its too late. Some people have their pixel width set at 320 or smaller, and thats too little. My camera is set at over 3000 wide, and, while I may have other photo problems, size is never a difficulty. So please, if youre going to take pictures for the paper, set your camera for at least 1600 wide. Your photos will come out much clearer. Second, never aim at a window or Pl ease he lp wi th qu al it y of yo ur ph ot os Among Friends Jim Clark glass door when taking a picture indoors. Most cameras are equipped with an automatic light meter, a lifesaver for those of us who have little time to get that perfect shot. But when youre in a room, and you aim at a window, your camera thinks the entire room is as bright as that window, and adjusts itself accordingly, making the people in the room come out dark. Third, if youre using a small camera with a small flash, dont shoot from too far away. Remember, a small flash is only going to illuminate a few feet from the camera. The people farther away will be in the dark. This happens a lot when people submit pictures of people standing behind a table. The table is good and bright, but the people are hardly visible. Fourth, watch your background. For me, one of the worst places to shoot pictures is the speakers at the State Road 200 Coalition meeting, because the podium is placed in front of a large plant, and when the picture comes out, it looks as if the speaker has a plant growing out of his head. So please, pay attention to what is in the background. Fifth, get identification. If you take a picture, then get the names of the people in the picture. If youve identified yourself as doing a photo for the newsPlease see PHOTOS Page 11 Governor Rick Scott Monday signed SB 1036, extending the age foster youth can stay in foster care from 18 to 21. Scott said, As we continue to put Floridas families first, we have a responsibility to invest in programs and pass legislation to help our vulnerable populations, like our children in foster care. This new law will ensure kids entrusted in our care have the best start possible into adulthood and provide them the opportunity to obtain the life skills necessary so they may live the American Dream. The bill signed today gives young adults the option to stay in foster care until age 21 and requires a transition plan be made for those who are leaving foster care. In addition, this new law requires the Department of Children and Families to provide 17 year old foster youth with the necessary information, records, and documentation required for self-sufficient independent living. Governor Scott was joined by bill sponsors Senator Nancy Detert and Representative Keith Perry, Secretary of the Department of Children and Families, David Wilkins, Floridas advocate for Foster and adoption, Tanya Wilkins, as well as foster youth from across the state. Senator Nancy Detert said, I was proud to be here today to join Governor Scott in signing this bill that is a result of hard work and collaboration between the House, the Senate and the Department of Children and Families. This bill demonstrates what government should be doing for its citizens and I am proud that Florida is one of the first states to offer this type of support for the foster care community. I will forever be grateful to Senate President Don Gaetz for naming this bill the Nancy C. Detert Common Sense and Compassion Independent Living Act. Representative Keith Perry said, The success of our foster youth is a direct reflection of the resources and care we provide them. I applaud Governor Scott and the Legislature for taking the right steps towards improving our foster care system by passing this legislation and signing it into law today. DCF Secretary David Wilkins said, "The eyes of the nation are on Florida as we make historic changes to the foster care system, paving the way for brighter futures for the children and young adults entrusted to our care. I am grateful to Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature for making Florida a national model for common sense and compassion, and for giving young adults in foster care the resources and support they need to be successful." Tanya Wilkins, Florida's Advocate for Foster and Adoption said, "We would not send our own children out into the world on their 18th birthday without a safety net and an option to return home when they need extra support," On behalf of children in foster care, I want to thank Florida's great leaders for giving them a better start in life and the ability to achieve their dreams." New law extends possible foster care to age 21 Its hot and humid. We dont need the calendar to tell us that summer started last weekend. Grab a cool one, take a seat and enjoy some hot stories.Rain danceEvery summer in Dustbowl, Kansas, it doesnt rain, the ponds dry up, the fields dry up, and the economy would dry up if the town didnt have its annual Dustbowl Rain Dance Competition. Native Americans and native wannabes come from all over to compete. Of course it never rains, but it is still a fierce competition. This year, theyve announced that the program will be emceed by the raining champion.Phoenix heatSummer heat in Phoenix is so high that the birds use potholders to pull worms out of the ground, farmers feed chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs, and the cows give evaporated milk. People go to McDonalds to get coffee and pour it on their laps, just to cool off.Canadian summerI asked my Canadian friend Did you have a good summer? He replied Yes indeed, we had a great picnic that afternoon.All wetMeanwhile, back in Florida theres a scuba diving geologist who measures the relative sizes of the rises, drops, cavities and undulations of coral formations. Of course this can only be done in the summer months so he takes the winters off to avoid the frigid air. Hes known as a frost-free reef ridge rater.SummertimeIn Hawaii where the weather is the same all year round there is no easy way to start a conversation. Surfing must be a religion to some kids; they do it kneeling. Isnt it great to get out on the old golf course again and lie in the sun? Summer is the time when it is too hot to do the jobs it was too cold to do in winter. Gulls are named seagulls because if they were by the bay, theyd be bagels. In the winter Joes dog wears his coat, but in the summer he wears his coat and pants. While sitting in the sun reading a book this summer a lot of folks will become well red. I can make it rain any time I want to. All I have to do is wash my car. Advertisement for lawn sprinkler system: Dew it yourself. The mosquitoes are so bad this year, if we wish to sit out on the veranda, we have to hire a swat team. Thieves who steal corn from a garden could be charged with stalking. You say you saw a lot of her last summer? Yes, I met her a number of times down at the bathing beach. Eye openerOn a hot summer day a lady was cleaning her house in the nude. When the doorbell rang she went to the door. Whos there? she inquired through the closed door. The blind man, was the response, so she opened the door and the man said, Where do you want me to put these blinds?Fractured answerSummer vacation was near and the teacher was trying to give her class an impression of fractions that would last until school resumed. She told them they could think of fractions at home as well as in school and gave such examples as half a sandwich, a quarter of a pie and tenth part of a dollar. At that point one little boy caught on and proudly contributed, My father came home last night with a fifth.Not Indian summerA proud Seminole Indian chief named Shortcake passed on to the great resting place in the sky when the heat became too much for him. Stricken with much grief, his squaw disappeared for many days. When she finally returned, the medicine man asked her, Where have you been? Weve all been worried. She replied, Squaw bury Shortcake.Shower warningIts so good to finally get a health warning that is useful: When washing your hair in the shower dont let the shampoo run down on your body. I dont know why I didnt figure this out sooner. Printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning: For Extra Body And Volume. No wonder I have been gaining weight. I got rid of that shampoo and I am going to start showering with dishwashing soap instead. Its label reads: Dissolves Fat That Is Otherwise Difficult To Remove.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Justice system fails again The criminal justice system in Florida has failed another child. Cherish Lynn Perrywinkle, whose body was found over the weekend near a north Jacksonville church, was an 8-year-old who was kidnapped from a Walmart. The man who allegedly took her was a convicted sex offender who had just been released from prison a few weeks earlier. Records show he was charged with a sex offense against a child all the way back in 1977, and there were other charges since then. He had pleaded guilty to impersonating a child welfare worker and had gone to prison. But here he was roaming the streets of Jacksonville after he was let loose. He preyed upon a gullible single mother who wanted a new dress for her daughter, who was scheduled to fly out the next morning to visit her father out west. He allegedly befriended her and told her that he and his wife would help. Published reports indicate that there was no evidence anyone else was involved. He reportedly offered to take the little girl to McDonalds at another part of Walmart for a hamburger. The mother agreed and the girl was never seen alive again. An alert police officer spotted the suspects van on the Interstate the next morning, and he was apprehended, but by then it was too late. The deception Donald Smith used to gain control of the girl was planned and devious. Yet, the mother ignored the warning signs and let her little girl walk away with him. The alleged killer was taken to jail, and was being held, thankfully, with no bond. If prosecutors dont find a way to keep this guy off the streets forever, then our justice system is broken beyond repair. Keeping him out of society will come too late for Cherish (her name was misspelled originally by police), but at least other children wont be at risk. And parents and grandparents, for Petes sake, keep an eye on your children. Dont be gullible enough to allow them to go away with a stranger, even it its just to the other side of a store. You might regret that move for the rest of your life. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest column Secrets and spiesBY BOB FRANKEN For those who turn to this space for the highly creative idea in the face of controversy, youre in luck once again. The issue is massive government cyberspying on Americans, largely by using a puppet court to force Google, Facebook and the others to turn over their data about our so-called private lives. So heres the brainstorm: Why not get rid of the middleman and nationalize all of these companies, make them an official part of our national-intelligence apparatus. We can call the entire thing Snoople. This, of course, is the polar opposite of an earlier scheme, which would be to privatize our espionage operations. The flaw with that one is that to a large extent we already have, since so much of the work is done by contractors like Booz Allen Hamilton. Thats the giant consulting firm whose proudest achievement was hiring Edward Snowden. How were they to know that they were employing such a versatile young man, one who was not only skilled in the technical aspects of highly classified operations, but also brilliant in the equally dark art of public relations. Snowden, after all, has made Booz Allen a household word and finally given government prying into its own citizens lives the attention it deserves. Dick Cheney re-emerged to appear on Fox News (where else) to defend these operations as very important to gather intelligence on your enemies and stop the attack before it is launched. If that sounds familiar, its because hes offered the same justification for torture. He made it clear that he has little regard for President Barack Obama, but they are in the same whatever it takes camp. Right there with them is Republican Congressman Peter King, whose latest gem is to argue that journalists (Full disclosure: I am one) who publish classified information should be charged as criminals. Apparently, some of those at the Justice Department agree. One of their agents who was investigating a leak was able to get a judges permission to track Fox News reporter James Rosen after filing an affidavit charging Rosen had aided, abetted or conspired with his source, in violation of the law while going through the normal routine of preparing a story. Dont our leaders have to take an oath to either preserve protect and defend or support the Constitution? What part of the First and Fourth Amendments dont they understand? Apparently, the freedom of the press and prohibitions against unreasonable searches and seizures concepts are a bit too complicated for them. Lets pause right here. This is when well hear a chorus of apologists in unison chanting that its just not that simple, that in these dangerous times there must be a balance. They certainly are correct about the mortal threat from terrorists, but lets dust off that Benjamin Franklin quote that He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither. That says it all. Democracy can be a pain. It requires a special ingenuity to protect our unique experiment in freedom. The Constitution is more than a nicety. This dilemma deserves our full attention and study. In the future, if you want to research these issues, you can Snoople them.

From time to time, we try to write something that will make it easier for people to get their news into our newspapers. Today, were going to concentrate on pictures. Over the past several months, weve suddenly had a large increase in the number of photos submitted electronically that are almost unusable. There are several reasons, and well break them down, but for the most part, concentrate on No. 1. First, there are continuing problems with the size of the photos. Most digital cameras have a pixel setting, and the owners manual will tell you that by setting it smaller, you can get more pictures on a single memory card. Thats a true statement, but the writers of the owners manual obviously didnt consult newspapers when they printed those directions. If you set your cameras pixels to get the most pictures on your card, chances are your pictures are going to be unusable in the newspaper. When we tell people their pictures are too small, they automatically think they can use a program to make them bigger. But that wont solve the issue. The only way to make those small pictures more usable is to increase the pixel size in the camera BEFORE the pictures are taken. Afterward, its too late. Some people have their pixel width set at 320 or smaller, and thats too little. My camera is set at over 3000 wide, and, while I may have other photo problems, size is never a difficulty. So please, if youre going to take pictures for the paper, set your camera for at least 1600 wide. Your photos will come out much clearer. Second, never aim at a window or Pl ease he lp wi th qu al it y of yo ur ph ot os Among Friends Jim Clark glass door when taking a picture indoors. Most cameras are equipped with an automatic light meter, a lifesaver for those of us who have little time to get that perfect shot. But when youre in a room, and you aim at a window, your camera thinks the entire room is as bright as that window, and adjusts itself accordingly, making the people in the room come out dark. Third, if youre using a small camera with a small flash, dont shoot from too far away. Remember, a small flash is only going to illuminate a few feet from the camera. The people farther away will be in the dark. This happens a lot when people submit pictures of people standing behind a table. The table is good and bright, but the people are hardly visible. Fourth, watch your background. For me, one of the worst places to shoot pictures is the speakers at the State Road 200 Coalition meeting, because the podium is placed in front of a large plant, and when the picture comes out, it looks as if the speaker has a plant growing out of his head. So please, pay attention to what is in the background. Fifth, get identification. If you take a picture, then get the names of the people in the picture. If youve identified yourself as doing a photo for the newsPlease see PHOTOS Page 11 Governor Rick Scott Monday signed SB 1036, extending the age foster youth can stay in foster care from 18 to 21. Scott said, As we continue to put Floridas families first, we have a responsibility to invest in programs and pass legislation to help our vulnerable populations, like our children in foster care. This new law will ensure kids entrusted in our care have the best start possible into adulthood and provide them the opportunity to obtain the life skills necessary so they may live the American Dream. The bill signed today gives young adults the option to stay in foster care until age 21 and requires a transition plan be made for those who are leaving foster care. In addition, this new law requires the Department of Children and Families to provide 17 year old foster youth with the necessary information, records, and documentation required for self-sufficient independent living. Governor Scott was joined by bill sponsors Senator Nancy Detert and Representative Keith Perry, Secretary of the Department of Children and Families, David Wilkins, Floridas advocate for Foster and adoption, Tanya Wilkins, as well as foster youth from across the state. Senator Nancy Detert said, I was proud to be here today to join Governor Scott in signing this bill that is a result of hard work and collaboration between the House, the Senate and the Department of Children and Families. This bill demonstrates what government should be doing for its citizens and I am proud that Florida is one of the first states to offer this type of support for the foster care community. I will forever be grateful to Senate President Don Gaetz for naming this bill the Nancy C. Detert Common Sense and Compassion Independent Living Act. Representative Keith Perry said, The success of our foster youth is a direct reflection of the resources and care we provide them. I applaud Governor Scott and the Legislature for taking the right steps towards improving our foster care system by passing this legislation and signing it into law today. DCF Secretary David Wilkins said, "The eyes of the nation are on Florida as we make historic changes to the foster care system, paving the way for brighter futures for the children and young adults entrusted to our care. I am grateful to Governor Scott and the Florida Legislature for making Florida a national model for common sense and compassion, and for giving young adults in foster care the resources and support they need to be successful." Tanya Wilkins, Florida's Advocate for Foster and Adoption said, "We would not send our own children out into the world on their 18th birthday without a safety net and an option to return home when they need extra support," On behalf of children in foster care, I want to thank Florida's great leaders for giving them a better start in life and the ability to achieve their dreams." New law extends possible foster care to age 21 Its hot and humid. We dont need the calendar to tell us that summer started last weekend. Grab a cool one, take a seat and enjoy some hot stories.Rain danceEvery summer in Dustbowl, Kansas, it doesnt rain, the ponds dry up, the fields dry up, and the economy would dry up if the town didnt have its annual Dustbowl Rain Dance Competition. Native Americans and native wannabes come from all over to compete. Of course it never rains, but it is still a fierce competition. This year, theyve announced that the program will be emceed by the raining champion.Phoenix heatSummer heat in Phoenix is so high that the birds use potholders to pull worms out of the ground, farmers feed chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs, and the cows give evaporated milk. People go to McDonalds to get coffee and pour it on their laps, just to cool off.Canadian summerI asked my Canadian friend Did you have a good summer? He replied Yes indeed, we had a great picnic that afternoon.All wetMeanwhile, back in Florida theres a scuba diving geologist who measures the relative sizes of the rises, drops, cavities and undulations of coral formations. Of course this can only be done in the summer months so he takes the winters off to avoid the frigid air. Hes known as a frost-free reef ridge rater.SummertimeIn Hawaii where the weather is the same all year round there is no easy way to start a conversation. Surfing must be a religion to some kids; they do it kneeling. Isnt it great to get out on the old golf course again and lie in the sun? Summer is the time when it is too hot to do the jobs it was too cold to do in winter. Gulls are named seagulls because if they were by the bay, theyd be bagels. In the winter Joes dog wears his coat, but in the summer he wears his coat and pants. While sitting in the sun reading a book this summer a lot of folks will become well red. I can make it rain any time I want to. All I have to do is wash my car. Advertisement for lawn sprinkler system: Dew it yourself. The mosquitoes are so bad this year, if we wish to sit out on the veranda, we have to hire a swat team. Thieves who steal corn from a garden could be charged with stalking. You say you saw a lot of her last summer? Yes, I met her a number of times down at the bathing beach. Eye openerOn a hot summer day a lady was cleaning her house in the nude. When the doorbell rang she went to the door. Whos there? she inquired through the closed door. The blind man, was the response, so she opened the door and the man said, Where do you want me to put these blinds?Fractured answerSummer vacation was near and the teacher was trying to give her class an impression of fractions that would last until school resumed. She told them they could think of fractions at home as well as in school and gave such examples as half a sandwich, a quarter of a pie and tenth part of a dollar. At that point one little boy caught on and proudly contributed, My father came home last night with a fifth.Not Indian summerA proud Seminole Indian chief named Shortcake passed on to the great resting place in the sky when the heat became too much for him. Stricken with much grief, his squaw disappeared for many days. When she finally returned, the medicine man asked her, Where have you been? Weve all been worried. She replied, Squaw bury Shortcake.Shower warningIts so good to finally get a health warning that is useful: When washing your hair in the shower dont let the shampoo run down on your body. I dont know why I didnt figure this out sooner. Printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning: For Extra Body And Volume. No wonder I have been gaining weight. I got rid of that shampoo and I am going to start showering with dishwashing soap instead. Its label reads: Dissolves Fat That Is Otherwise Difficult To Remove.Dick and his wife Jane live in Oak Run.

I am a realist in a modified definition of that word and I usually take things as they come. My past week, however, was an open commentary on Murphys Law. Offhand I am not quite sure who come up with this concept, but they must have had a week somewhat like my week this past week. If I had it within me, I would establish Snyders Law which simply stated means, what can go right will go right. Then all would be right with the world. Well, except for those who are lefthanded. It all started Monday when I had an early morning meeting. I meant to set my alarm clock for 6 a.m. but for some reason I set it for 6 p.m. and overslept. Have you ever noticed when you are 15 minutes late in the morning the day ends up being 90 minutes late? Do not ask me how that happens. Ask Murphy. In the mail, I got a notice from the bank that I was overdrawn and they were charging me an insufficient fund fee. Well, I was furious. After all, I know how to add and subtract and I know how to take care of my bank account. I was about ready to call them and give them a piece of my mind when I noticed, how it happened I will never know, I forgot to include two checks I had written last week. I hate when that happens. My whole checkbook is now screwed up. I think it might be easier for me just to close my account and start all over again. It was Tuesday but I had to go across town and endure all that traffic. It is not my favorite place to drive, I will tell you right now. Just as I turned onto a street, my engine sputtered a little bit. Then, much to my chagrin, the engine stopped completely. I hate when that happens. I turned the key several times and then, I do not know why I did it, but I glanced at the gas gauge and the arrow was pointing way beyond the E. My gas tank was about as empty as my bank account. It is bad to run out of gas, but the worst thing for me about running out of gas is calling the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and asking her for help. I would walk 100 miles not to tell her I am out of gas. She always comes and bails me out. However, for the next six months I am reminded and reminded and reminded to put gas in my tank. Thursday also had its issues. My wife wanted me to go to the store and pick up something and for some reason, I cannot remember it now, I used her car. Maybe it was because I did not want to run out of gas! I got to the store, paid for my purchase, came out and tried finding my truck. I walked up and down and my truck was nowhere in sight. The only thing I could think of at the time was that somebody had stolen my truck. I thought about calling the police, and then I thought better and decided I would call my wife first. You know what it is like when your wife hears something secondhand. And so I called her. I cant find my truck, I said trying to keep my voice as calm as possible not to get her upset, I think somebody stole it. Should I call the police? Silence on the phone. Then I heard her say in a very calm voice, Whoever stole your truck parked it in our driveway. I then remembered I was driving her car. I tried to chuckle within but I knew that this incident would hang in our house for months to come and I have Mr. Murphy to thank for that. It was such a horrific week and I was so deep in trouble with my Better Half, I decided to take her out Friday night for a nice meal on the town. I took her to her favorite restaurant and we ordered our supper, then set back and kind of sighed the week away. Maybe all that could go wrong has gone wrong and the week was about to turn around. We chatted; I tried to skew the conversation away from running out of gas and misplacing my truck. Then the waitress came with our meal. I was ready to settle down, enjoy a scrumptious meal and end the week on a happy note. The waitress set my wifes plate in front of her and she smiled. Then the waitress set my plate in front of me and I freaked out. For some reason the waitress got my order mixed up with somebody elses order and right in the middle of my plate was a pile of broccoli. The only hope I have is that it cannot get any worse than this. I think David, the psalmist, understood this when he wrote, ... weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning (Psalm 30:5 KJV). As bad as it gets, as a Christian I have some great things to look forward to in Jesus Christ.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

Free HIV testing will be available: 8 a.m. p.m. at the Florida Department of Health in Marion County, 1801 S.E. 32nd Ave., Ocala 8 a.m. p.m. at Parkside Garden Apartments Community Center, 621 N.W. 2nd St., Ocala 10 a.m. p.m. at Ramah Missionary Baptist Church, 10545 S.E. 58th Ave., Belleview Nearly 1 in 5 people living with HIV dont know they have it, said Barbara Rahiem, supervisor of the Departments HIV/AIDS program With testing, people with HIV can get treatment so they can live longer, healthier lives. Testing and treatment can also reduce the chances of passing HIV on to someone else. The Department and Parkside locations will offer the rapid HIV test that provides results in 15 minutes from a finger-prick blood sample. Ramah is offering an oral HIV test that provides results in two weeks. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 1.1 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV. Nearly 4,000 new cases of HIV were reported in Florida last year, and 41 in Marion County.

This is especially important when taking pictures of children. ALWAYS get the parents permission to run the photo. Finally, remember the old editors adage: Pictures show action, not people. While its nice to get a lot of peoples faces in the picture, there should also be some action shots, some people doing something, not just standing there. Action shots will attract the casual reader to the photo much quicker than just a lineup of people. Hopefully, this will help you get your photos to us in more usable fashion.

PHOTOScontinued from Page 8 Answers to this weeks puzzles Recently several of us in Fairfield Village were discussing one of the issues of significant concern to many of usmedical care. While we had many comments that were addressed toward questions about Medicare, Obamacare, and just care in general, we were happy to find that we had one common denominator that was very positive. We all share the same excellent care from a unique physician here in Ocala, Dr, Cesar Gamero. Dr. Gamero and his assistant, Natasha Aguilar, work from a most friendly office in the TimberRidge Medical Complex. The office does not have the cold atmosphere of many medical offices. When one enters the waiting area, he or she is met with a warm and friendly greeting by Natasha who seems to know each patient as a personal friend. Any trepidation is soon dispelled by the smile and assuring words of this lovely, competent professional lady. I recently talked with Natasha about her career. She came to the central Florida area after graduating from the nursing program at St. John the Baptist Hospital in West Islip, N.Y. in 2002. Previously, she was the night nurse in Gainesville at the Alachua County Jail. She became Dr. Gameros assistant when she found out through her family (who were his patients) that the job was open. As the single mom of two children and her adopted niece as well, this position is much more satisfying. Her children, Jasmine (11), Deven (8), and Arianna (4) are all very proud of their mom who is fluent in both Spanish and English which is a great help to many patients. Natasha has tremendous respect for Dr. Gamero. She says that he is adamant about having a one-onone relationship with his patients and works with the whole person. Dr. Gamero does not work with an associate doctor because he wants to make sure that there is always strict continuity of care. He spends a great deal of time getting to know his patients, their habits and their lifestyle taking all these things into consideration with their diagnoses and appropriate treatments. The father of three children, Dr. Gamero is originally from Lima, Peru. His mother always encouraged him toward medicine, as did his father who was a pharmaceutical representative. Ironically, Dr. Gameros first love was music, but he realized the significance of a medical career and tabled his musical Special thanks to an excellent local physician Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal ambitions. He still loves musiche has a great singing voiceand enjoys his extensive music collection. His sister is a psychologist and his brother is a civil engineer. Obviously, he is part of an extremely successful family. After graduating from San Augustin National University and San Marcos National University in Arequipo, Peru, Dr. Gamero did his post-doctoral work at Hospital Episcopal San Lucas in Ponce, Puerto Rico. In June of 2001, he received a first place award for his presentation at the 38th Scientific Activity Americo Serro. He worked as a Critical Care Physician and Emergency Room Physician in Coama, Puerto Rico. Later he practiced in both Texas and Arizona before deciding to come to Ocala. Needless to say, we, his patients are so very glad that he made that decision. Other than being an exceptional internal medicine professional, Dr. Gamero is a unique physician in that he has hospital privileges at all three of our local hospitals. He regularly sees his patients who are hospitalized himself. That is most unusual these days and so very appreciated by his patients. As I checked his profile on local internet evaluations, I foundnot at all to my surprisethat Dr. Gamero has a 4.0 star rating in all categories. That is quite an accomplishment! Kudos from several of his patients reiterate how highly his patients think of him. Sandy Norris said: Moving permanently to Ocala posed many problems but a primary concern was finding good medical care. How fortunate it was that Dr. Gamero was both recommended and was also in our insurance plan. We could not have found a better doctor. He truly cares! Patients have his full attention and never have the feeling of being shoved through. Each appointment ends with his questioning if we have any more concerns. What a joy it is to have him listen to us and discuss possible treatments. He is a true M.D. Another Fairfield neighbor said: I will admit that I have not always had complete faith in the medical community because of some very bad experiences when I was younger. Now, I have a totally different feeling about doctors because Dr. Gamero takes the time to listen to me and to answer all my questions. To me, he is almost like a psychologist and medical doctor all in one. Katherine and Augustin Stenz said: Since we moved here from New York, we have been so pleased with Dr. Gameros care. He is one of the finest doctors we have ever seen. He is so personable and attentive to his patients. Another important thinghe always calls us right back if we need him. T. F said: I feel like a real person to Dr. Gameronot just money in his pocket. He is really awesome. I have congenital heart failure as well as other conditions and I am totally confident in his care for me. He is one of a kind. As the comments show, Dr. Cesar Gamero is regarded as a most unusually caring and professional physician. We who are his patients feel especially blessed and want to thank him for being the doctor who really cares for his patients in his own unique way. From Fairfield Village, the lively place filled with lovely people we send wishes for health and happiness to all our Central Florida neighbors. Dr. Cesar Aguilar and his assistant, Natasha Aguilar, have a special rapport with their patients who greatly appreciate the individual attention given by these two fine medical professionals to all those in their care.

Quail Meadows grand marshal needs a parade escort Can you believe that its almost July? They always say, Time flies when youre having fun, so we must be having a blast! With July approaching we are getting ready for a fabulous 4th of July celebration in Quail Meadow. Do we have someone who would volunteer to be an escort for the Grand Marshal of the parade; either in a convertible or a golf cart. If interested, please call Marion Gartman. Several residents have signed up to be in the parade. There is still time to get in the parade with your car, truck, cart, bicycle, lawn mower, or just walk. How about some of our groups, such as the card players, Mah Jongg group, Red Hatters, ceramics, etc. getting your group together and be a part of the parade? Please call Marion Gartman and let her know if you plan to participate in the parade. Prizes will be given to the best decorated conveyance. The parade will begin at the clubhouse at 9 a.m., tour the neighborhood, and then return to the clubhouse for refreshments. That is just the beginning Quail Meadow Carolyn Slocumb Above and below, pictures from the Ladies Luncheon. of the celebration. We will have a chicken dinner at 1 p.m. (chicken from Lees Chicken). Tickets, for a $3 donation, are still available from Carol Sjogren and Marie Schneider. Entertainment during the dinner will be provided by Dave Atkinson. Come join us for a day of fun at Quail Meadow. A group of 18 women enjoyed the monthly luncheon at Stone Creek Grille. It was good to see some of our new residents with us. The food was great, especially the bread pudding with bourbon sauce! We voted to continue the monthly luncheons during the summer (after all, we still need to eat). Mark your calendars for July 12 which will be the next luncheon. We will meet for lunch at Blancas Restaurant in Ocala Palms. Beware of the scams that seem to be multiplying. Some water companies are calling wanting to test your water supply. They try to scare you into thinking our water is contaminated: it isnt! If you read the flyer in this months water bill you saw the report on our water supply that verified it is safe. Dont be taken in by these scam artists. A few weeks ago I gave you the number to call to register your telephones (landline and cell) on the National Do Not Call List. Florida also has a do not call list that is effective on July 1. To subscribe to the Florida Do Not Call Program, register your phones by going to their web site: www.800helpfla.com, or by calling 1-800-435-7352. This registration is good for five years. The National Do Not Call List can be reached by calling 1-888-382-1222, or you can register on line at www.donotcall.gov. By registering with both places you should see a decrease in the number of annoying calls. If they continue after you have registered, you can file a complaint. Because of July 4th, early deadlines the next two weeks for the Messenger Damage to a vehicle has resulted in the arrest of a Southwest Ocala man. Dale Small, 61, of Southwest 77th Court, was accused of burglary and criminal mischief of a vehicle belonging to a man in the 7600 block of Southwest 2nd Street. Responding to a burglary call, the deputy met with the cars owner, who said he had observed damage to his vehicle. He said he had an altercation with Small. About 10 p.m. on the night of June 23, he returned to his car and found that the steering column of the SUV was broken. Witnesses told deputies that Small had broken into the car. A deputy then contacted Small at his home, read him his rights, and Small allegedly confessed. It was revealed that the SUV was unlocked at the time of the damage. According to the report, the vehicle could not be shifted properly. Small was booked early on June 24, and was released after posting $4,000 bond a couple of hours later.
