The United Way ABC 4 U campaign is working to change that. The ABC 4 U campaign is designed to help children ages 2-5 recognize their letters. The campaign enlists the help of Marion County businesses, nonprofit agencies and government offices to help promote a letter of the week each week beginning July 1, and running for 26 weeks. Businesses and other agencies can use creative ways to display the letter of the week where children are likely to be present. We want Marion County to be known as the community where children know all their letters by the time they start school, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. ABC 4 U will give the entire community a way to help reach that goal. Volunteers for the ABC 4 U Campaign carried the letters of the alphabet in the Ocala/Marion County and the Belleview Christmas parades, giving Marion County residents a taste of the early learning campaign that is set to begin soon. With an entire community engaged in an effort to help expose young children to the alphabet, we can help early-learners begin recognizing their letters, giving them the tools they need to be ready for school, said Quinlan. ABC 4 U is part of the ReadingPals early literacy initiative. Sponsored by Barney and Carol J. Barnett Fund, the initiative focuses on engaging, training and deploying volunteer ReadingPals to increase the number of students reading at grade level by the end of third grade. The ReadingPals initiative has already begun in 10 Florida communities including Marion County, working with local United Ways. Marion Countys ABC 4 U campaign is a partnership of the Barney and Carol J. Barnett Fund, Early Learning Coalition, Marion County Public Schools, Marion County Public Library and the Marion County Health Department. For details on how you can get involved, please call the United Way of Marion County at 352-7329696 ext. 212 or jhathaway@uwmc.org.

Thanks to the Social Activities Committees efforts, along with all those who helped, the gathering was very impressive with the traditional red, white, and blue decorations adorning the tables and the walls of the large meeting room. The food was excellent, as usual, and the camaraderie was outstanding. However, what truly impressed those present was the patriotic spirit so evident as songs were sung, American flags were waved, and prayers were offered for our nation on the occasion of the 237th celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Cecile Gautier and Paula LeBlanc led the prayers, Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of the patriotic songs. Bart Rich and Kerry Breeden were responsible for an outstanding video presentation of music and scenes of American icons. Honestly, it brought tears to many eyes. FFV is blessed to have people such as these four mentioned who share their talents to make events so memorable. The accompanying photos give an overview of the outstanding celebration of Americas birthday in Fairfield Village a lively place filled with lovely (and very patriotic) people who hope that all of Central Florida enjoyed the 4th of July as much as we did. More photos, Page 12 Fairfield Villagers say Happy Birthday to America Fairfield Village Priscilla Geissal Richard O'Hern was waving his flag and his 50/50 tickets when he won the cash drawing.

Fantastic! W onderful! Great! These are all words used to describe Independence Day in Quail Meadow. The day began with the parade, which some old timers said was the best one ever. There were classic cars, golf carts, motorcycles, and bicycles in the parade even some dressed-up dogs riding with a couple of the drivers. The Citizens P atrol car led the parade down the streets of the subdivision. Many residents waved flags to the group as they passed the homes. The weather was beautiful and made for a great morning. After the parade, the participants met at the clubhouse for cookies and lemonade, and also the awarding of the prizes. First place went to the Bill Mitchell car which was driven by Brooke Hamlin; second place was the decorated car of Bob and Pat T obin (an Uncle Sam doll was riding on top); and the third place winner was Buck Fife in his vintage car The judges said that actually everyone was a winner and it was very difficult to choose the three winners. The fabulous chicken lunch was enjoyed by about 85 residents and guests. It was great to see so many new residents with us for the afternoon. The table decorations were very festive and represented the American spirit. Before enjoying the lunch, all those who had served in the militar y were recognized; we have residents who have served in the Army Navy, Marines, Air Force, and the Coast Guard. W e are honored to have these dedicated people living here in Quail Meadow. We were entertained during the dinner, and af terwards, by Dave Atkinson and The Dave Atkinson Trio. A surprise was Vincenzo Basile was with the group; he sang a few songs for our enjoyment. If you remember, Mr Basile presented a program for us in April. A special thanks goes to Marion Gartman and the social committee for putting together a wonderful fun day. The social committee is working very hard to provide activities for our community. August will be vacation month for special activities, but in September the fun will begin again. The Homecoming Sock Hop will be Sept. 16 mark your calendars! Attention all ladies: Friday, July 12, is the monthly luncheon. Lunch will be at Blancas Caf in Ocala Palms call Marion Gartman or Pat Tobin for reservations. A big celebration takes place on the Fourth at Quail Meadow Quail Meadow Carolyn Slocumb Citizen Patrol car, John Stone driver, leading the parade.

Bishop Paul Woosley is discovered through worshiping together 71 1187 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your persistence pays off as the information you demanded starts to come through. The pace is slow at first, but it begins to speed up as the week draws to a close. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unwelcome bit of news jolts the Bovine, who would prefer that things proceed smoothly. But its at most a momentary setback. A Leo brings more welcome tidings. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You need to pay close attention to the details before making a commitment. Dont accept anything that seems questionable, unless you get an answer that can be backed up. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations on getting that project up and running. But as exciting as it is, dont let it carry you away. Make sure you set aside time to spend with family and friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be sure youre part of the discussion involving your suggestions. Your presence ensures that you can defend your work, if necessary. It also helps gain your colleagues support. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A misunderstanding needs to be dealt with, or it can cause more problems later on. Be the bigger person and take the first step to clear the air. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Set some strict guidelines for yourself so your heavier-than-usual work schedule doesnt overwhelm the time you need to spend relaxing with loved ones. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might feel a little uncomfortable being among people you hardly know. But remember that todays strangers can become tomorrows valuable contacts.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion Federal furloughs having an effect The mandated federal furloughs because of funding shortages were scheduled to start this week. Among those affected were members of the National Guard here in Florida. Rightly so, Gov. Rick Scott has protested and is seeking to have the Guard hours returned to full time. This is especially crucial during hurricane season, and it is ironic that Tropical Storm Chantal formed in the Atlantic over the weekend just before the furloughs were to start. The cuts affect numerous federal employees, amounting to a 20 percent reduction in work hours and a corresponding reduction in salary. A lot of this goes back to the inability of Congress to come to a budget agreement forcing what is being called a sequester. Congress is back in session now, and needs to take action on many of these problems. Another costly implementation took place last week when the cost of student loans, for all practical purposes, doubled, because Congress failed to take action. Members have promised to take a look at that problem this week. Congress has been battling over immigration reform, but cant seem to come to an agreement on how to keep things going for those of us who are already here and were born here. Maybe our legislators should get their priorities in order and take care of business for legitimate citizens before worrying about others. Were also fearful that the uprising in Egypt is going to occupy valuable time in Congress. At stake is federal aid to that country. There is a law that, if its a military coup replacing a duly elected government, all U.S. aid must stop. The president conveniently avoided calling it a coup, but many members of Congress are openly saying thats what it was. This will be time consuming, and could take away from efforts to straighten out our countrys finances at home. At any rate, before Chantal decides if and where it will make landfall, it would be nice to know that the National Guard is at full strength to protect us, if needed. For that, we need the feds to take action immediately. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Your letter God founded AmericaThere is a great deal of material on the founding fathers. The more I read the more admiration I have for their genius, their persistence, their fortitude, dedication, and sacrifice. They were exceptional humans. Even more so than any saints I am acquainted with. They left no stone unturned and researched governments all the way back to Cicero. There were two free societies, prior to ours. Moses led one, and the Anglo-Saxons the other. The founders were determined not to repeat any of the mistakes made by those two societies, to correct all the deficiencies. With the many perspectives involved, among the founders, they were able to see the down sides of every issue, and tried to put protections in to subvert any who would try to take over the government by any means. There are ways to stop a takeover, but none of our current elected officials seem inclined to do anything. Among all the founders, the man who stood, and still stands out as a star is George Washington. Even as a child I learned how hard things were for Washington. And though I have read much about him since, it took the reading of this book to put him in total perspective for me. The book, The Making of America by W. Cleon Skousen, covers his campaigns, and battles in more depth than anything I have ever read. I saw something in this book that made me see Washington, was a person truly watched over, guided, and protected by God, put on earth to serve His purpose. There is no human who could have endured, and survived, what Washington did without divine intervention. God wanted this nation founded, and Washington was His tool. Washington had four bullet holes in his coat, and two horses shot from under him, yet he remained unscathed, at the Battle of the Wilderness during the French and Indian War, but he survived without so much as a scratch. Many times, some of his men literally froze to death during the Revolutionary War, but he was always spared. Every last one of them should have starved to death. Several times there were fortuitous weather phenomena that helped him win over superior forces armed and provisioned to the teeth. Miraculous fogs appeared at precisely the right time, on several occasions. Not a moment too soon, nor a moment too late. Just right. How do you account for that? It was only by the hand of God that these things could have happened. Because of the overwhelming circumstances, extreme weather, ill provisioned and equipped, the U.S. troops should have lost, but with Washingtons leadership, and divine intervention the U.S. troops prevailed. Their victories were miraculous; Gods hand was clearly with this man. I think providence wanted this nation to be born. Are we to witness her demise? Not if I can help it. Is this a nation worth fixing, and keeping? It does need a little work, and a few patriots. But, it is a keeper. D.I.

Amid the celebrations for the Fourth of July, there were a number of news events last week that drew the attention of people away from the festivities. Some of them reminded us how quickly lives can be turned around. PLANE CRASH IN SAN FRANCISCO: One minute, the plane is descending for a landing, the next its coming in too low and the landing gear catches the seawall. The tail section is ripped off, the plane skids and burns Kudos to the flight attendants, who got everyone off the plane in less than two minutes, well before the destructive fire. However, the impact, especially in the rear, killed two teenagers and injured more people, some with spinal problems that could result in paralysis. Social media really trumped the TV networks on this one. ABC broke into its network at 7:25 p.m. Saturday to say that two people were dead, when it had been on Twitter more than an hour before that. Also, someone using a cell phone to film landings caught the actual accident. My baseball team, the New York Mets, finished up a series in Milwaukee on Sunday and then flew to San Francisco to play the Giants. One of the Mets, Dillon Gee, tweeted about the Mets flight landing right next to the damaged plane. That had to be an emotional moment not only for them, but for all the other passengers landing near the scene. PLANE CRASH IN ALASKA: Ten people were believed to have been killed in a crash in Alaska of a commuter plane on Sunday. Thats two passenger crashes in two days. And you wonder why I dont fly. ZIMMERMAN TRIAL: The George Taking in all of last weeks major news Among Friends Jim Clark Zimmerman murder trial resumed this week, and by the time you read this the defense may have rested. Last weeks emotional testimony came from the mothers of both the accused and the victim. They each said it was their son screaming on the 911 tape. To me their testimony was a wash, and neither should have been allowed. All it did was pull at the heartstrings of people watching, but Im not sure the jury feels that way. They just want the attorneys to get on with it. Theyve been away from their homes long enough. UPRISING IN EGYPT: I have to admit, I dont care, and I dont see why we should, as a country, pay any attention to this. If these people want to battle and kill themselves over who should run the country, fine. But, lets stop all aid to this nation until a stable government emerges. LONE RANGER BURIED: Well, not literally, after all, you cant destroy the Lone Ranger, but after the first weekends box office, there were stories that Disney could lose $150 million because of the movies poor attendance. If I want to watch The Lone Ranger, Ill catch the reruns on TV. Give me Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels anytime.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

At any rate, before Chantal decides if and where it will make landfall, it would be nice to know that the National Guard is at full strength to protect us, if needed. For that, we need the feds to take action immediately. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANREGIONALMANAGER: JOHN PROVOSTEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Your letter God founded AmericaThere is a great deal of material on the founding fathers. The more I read the more admiration I have for their genius, their persistence, their fortitude, dedication, and sacrifice. They were exceptional humans. Even more so than any saints I am acquainted with. They left no stone unturned and researched governments all the way back to Cicero. There were two free societies, prior to ours. Moses led one, and the Anglo-Saxons the other. The founders were determined not to repeat any of the mistakes made by those two societies, to correct all the deficiencies. With the many perspectives involved, among the founders, they were able to see the down sides of every issue, and tried to put protections in to subvert any who would try to take over the government by any means. There are ways to stop a takeover, but none of our current elected officials seem inclined to do anything. Among all the founders, the man who stood, and still stands out as a star is George Washington. Even as a child I learned how hard things were for Washington. And though I have read much about him since, it took the reading of this book to put him in total perspective for me. The book, The Making of America by W. Cleon Skousen, covers his campaigns, and battles in more depth than anything I have ever read. I saw something in this book that made me see Washington, was a person truly watched over, guided, and protected by God, put on earth to serve His purpose. There is no human who could have endured, and survived, what Washington did without divine intervention. God wanted this nation founded, and Washington was His tool. Washington had four bullet holes in his coat, and two horses shot from under him, yet he remained unscathed, at the Battle of the Wilderness during the French and Indian War, but he survived without so much as a scratch. Many times, some of his men literally froze to death during the Revolutionary War, but he was always spared. Every last one of them should have starved to death. Several times there were fortuitous weather phenomena that helped him win over superior forces armed and provisioned to the teeth. Miraculous fogs appeared at precisely the right time, on several occasions. Not a moment too soon, nor a moment too late. Just right. How do you account for that? It was only by the hand of God that these things could have happened. Because of the overwhelming circumstances, extreme weather, ill provisioned and equipped, the U.S. troops should have lost, but with Washingtons leadership, and divine intervention the U.S. troops prevailed. Their victories were miraculous; Gods hand was clearly with this man. I think providence wanted this nation to be born. Are we to witness her demise? Not if I can help it. Is this a nation worth fixing, and keeping? It does need a little work, and a few patriots. But, it is a keeper. D.I.

Amid the celebrations for the Fourth of July, there were a number of news events last week that drew the attention of people away from the festivities. Some of them reminded us how quickly lives can be turned around. PLANE CRASH IN SAN FRANCISCO: One minute, the plane is descending for a landing, the next its coming in too low and the landing gear catches the seawall. The tail section is ripped off, the plane skids and burns Kudos to the flight attendants, who got everyone off the plane in less than two minutes, well before the destructive fire. However, the impact, especially in the rear, killed two teenagers and injured more people, some with spinal problems that could result in paralysis. Social media really trumped the TV networks on this one. ABC broke into its network at 7:25 p.m. Saturday to say that two people were dead, when it had been on Twitter more than an hour before that. Also, someone using a cell phone to film landings caught the actual accident. My baseball team, the New York Mets, finished up a series in Milwaukee on Sunday and then flew to San Francisco to play the Giants. One of the Mets, Dillon Gee, tweeted about the Mets flight landing right next to the damaged plane. That had to be an emotional moment not only for them, but for all the other passengers landing near the scene. PLANE CRASH IN ALASKA: Ten people were believed to have been killed in a crash in Alaska of a commuter plane on Sunday. Thats two passenger crashes in two days. And you wonder why I dont fly. ZIMMERMAN TRIAL: The George Taking in all of last weeks major news Among Friends Jim Clark Zimmerman murder trial resumed this week, and by the time you read this the defense may have rested. Last weeks emotional testimony came from the mothers of both the accused and the victim. They each said it was their son screaming on the 911 tape. To me their testimony was a wash, and neither should have been allowed. All it did was pull at the heartstrings of people watching, but Im not sure the jury feels that way. They just want the attorneys to get on with it. Theyve been away from their homes long enough. UPRISING IN EGYPT: I have to admit, I dont care, and I dont see why we should, as a country, pay any attention to this. If these people want to battle and kill themselves over who should run the country, fine. But, lets stop all aid to this nation until a stable government emerges. LONE RANGER BURIED: Well, not literally, after all, you cant destroy the Lone Ranger, but after the first weekends box office, there were stories that Disney could lose $150 million because of the movies poor attendance. If I want to watch The Lone Ranger, Ill catch the reruns on TV. Give me Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels anytime.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger.

Fantastic! W onderful! Great! These are all words used to describe Independence Day in Quail Meadow. The day began with the parade, which some old timers said was the best one ever. There were classic cars, golf carts, motorcycles, and bicycles in the parade even some dressed-up dogs riding with a couple of the drivers. The Citizens P atrol car led the parade down the streets of the subdivision. Many residents waved flags to the group as they passed the homes. The weather was beautiful and made for a great morning. After the parade, the participants met at the clubhouse for cookies and lemonade, and also the awarding of the prizes. First place went to the Bill Mitchell car which was driven by Brooke Hamlin; second place was the decorated car of Bob and Pat T obin (an Uncle Sam doll was riding on top); and the third place winner was Buck Fife in his vintage car The judges said that actually everyone was a winner and it was very difficult to choose the three winners. The fabulous chicken lunch was enjoyed by about 85 residents and guests. It was great to see so many new residents with us for the afternoon. The table decorations were very festive and represented the American spirit. Before enjoying the lunch, all those who had served in the militar y were recognized; we have residents who have served in the Army Navy, Marines, Air Force, and the Coast Guard. W e are honored to have these dedicated people living here in Quail Meadow. We were entertained during the dinner, and af terwards, by Dave Atkinson and The Dave Atkinson Trio. A surprise was Vincenzo Basile was with the group; he sang a few songs for our enjoyment. If you remember, Mr Basile presented a program for us in April. A special thanks goes to Marion Gartman and the social committee for putting together a wonderful fun day. The social committee is working very hard to provide activities for our community. August will be vacation month for special activities, but in September the fun will begin again. The Homecoming Sock Hop will be Sept. 16 mark your calendars! Attention all ladies: Friday, July 12, is the monthly luncheon. Lunch will be at Blancas Caf in Ocala Palms call Marion Gartman or Pat Tobin for reservations.

Thanks to the Social Activities Committees efforts, along with all those who helped, the gathering was very impressive with the traditional red, white, and blue decorations adorning the tables and the walls of the large meeting room. The food was excellent, as usual, and the camaraderie was outstanding. However, what truly impressed those present was the patriotic spirit so evident as songs were sung, American flags were waved, and prayers were offered for our nation on the occasion of the 237th celebration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Cecile Gautier and Paula LeBlanc led the prayers, Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of the patriotic songs. Bart Rich and Kerry Breeden were responsible for an outstanding video presentation of music and scenes of American icons. Honestly, it brought tears to many eyes. FFV is blessed to have people such as these four mentioned who share their talents to make events so memorable. The accompanying photos give an overview of the outstanding celebration of Americas birthday in Fairfield Village a lively place filled with lovely (and very patriotic) people who hope that all of Central Florida enjoyed the 4th of July as much as we did.

The United Way ABC 4 U campaign is working to change that. The ABC 4 U campaign is designed to help children ages 2-5 recognize their letters. The campaign enlists the help of Marion County businesses, nonprofit agencies and government offices to help promote a letter of the week each week beginning July 1, and running for 26 weeks. Businesses and other agencies can use creative ways to display the letter of the week where children are likely to be present. We want Marion County to be known as the community where children know all their letters by the time they start school, said Maureen Quinlan, president of United Way of Marion County. ABC 4 U will give the entire community a way to help reach that goal. Volunteers for the ABC 4 U Campaign carried the letters of the alphabet in the Ocala/Marion County and the Belleview Christmas parades, giving Marion County residents a taste of the early learning campaign that is set to begin soon. With an entire community engaged in an effort to help expose young children to the alphabet, we can help early-learners begin recognizing their letters, giving them the tools they need to be ready for school, said Quinlan. ABC 4 U is part of the ReadingPals early literacy initiative. Sponsored by Barney and Carol J. Barnett Fund, the initiative focuses on engaging, training and deploying volunteer ReadingPals to increase the number of students reading at grade level by the end of third grade. The ReadingPals initiative has already begun in 10 Florida communities including Marion County, working with local United Ways. Marion Countys ABC 4 U campaign is a partnership of the Barney and Carol J. Barnett Fund, Early Learning Coalition, Marion County Public Schools, Marion County Public Library and the Marion County Health Department. For details on how you can get involved, please call the United Way of Marion County at 352-7329696 ext. 212 or jhathaway@uwmc.org.
