The collision shut down all southbound lanes for approximately one hour while first responders worked to clear the scene. Approximately 1,000 wooden crates from the overturned pick-up truck trailer littered the roadway. According to Ocala Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Rick Doucett, firefighters stopped the leak from a 100-gallon diesel saddle tank of the tractor that had been punctured. Six people in the vehicles were not injured. Ocala Fire Rescue responded to the collision at 6:37 a.m. PHOTOS BY BRIAN STOOTHOFFPhoto on top shows some of the boxes that were spilled.

Discover and support small to medium businesses owners and representative who have made the commitment of excellent service to you and are proud to be apart of Ocalas community. Wow! Fabulous! Fantastic! Wonderful! These are just a few of the words used to describe the great Car/Motorcycle Cruise-in and Sock Hop. The response was tremendous. Eighty-three residents and guests gathered at the clubhouse to view the exhibits and then enjoy the music from the 50s and 60s. Many even dressed for the occasion. You should have seen the hair-dos, poodle skirts, rolled-up jeans, and crinoline skirts. The entertainment was provided by Kathy and Tony Monjierio The Sounds of Time. They have been performing in the Villages for 16 years. Kathy really got the group going with various dances. The event began with the display of the old cars and motorcycles in the parking lot. While examining the cars and bikes we were provided music by Johnny D, who is a QM resident (Johnny also displayed his car). This music added to the festivities. We wish to thank everyone who contributed to the cruise-in. Seeing the old cars in such pristine condition shows that these owners have put in many hours restoring the older cars. Once you went inside the clubhouse there were more displays model cars and airplanes. Dom Mollica, Ron and Carol Mowrey, and Jack and Margene Sheidler were the exhibitors. We wish to thank Bill and Carol Sjogren for getting the participants for the outdoor show and Jack and Margene Sheidler for getting the indoor exhibit arranged. Once the music began inside the clubhouse everyone really got into the mood of the evening. You should have seen all the poodle skirts, crinolins, and saddle shoes! As the music of the 50s began many couples got on the dance floor and showed they still remembered the dances of our high school/college years. One dance was special for Ron and Marion Gartman it was their 35th wedCruise-in, sock hop draws enthusiastic crowd Quail Meadow Carolyn Slocumb Margene Sheidler with model cars.

The snack foods for the evening (prepared by Joan Christopher) were popcorn, Chex mix, potato chips, Ritz crackers, cheese balls, rice krispy treats, peanut butter, pretzels, Oreo cookies, and celery sticks. Along with the music and dancing there were also other events: a card game and guessing the number of pieces of bubble gum in the jar. Thanks to Sue Church for providing this entertainment. Prizes for some of the events included bubble gum, Quail Meadow license plates, a gift basket, and lotto tickets.

Can you imagine how awful it would be? It would be a sad day if I came home from some trip and found my mess completely gone. What would I do with my life? I would have to start life all over again and you know how expensive that is. It is tough married to a fix up guru; then again, I suppose it is just as hard to be wedded to a mess up guru. I have one concession in this area. David said it so well, Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow (Psalms 51:7 KJV).

After telling Joiner there were two other men inside, he gave the lieutenant permission to enter the store. According to the affidavit, once inside the business Lt. Joiner in plain view observed next to a pool table numerous bags containing packages of synthetic marijuana. To the right of the business Lt. Joiner observed several plastic table work stations. Lt. Joiner observed some of the tables had small plastic containers with empty packages of synthetic marijuana. Also in a back room Lt. Joiner located several plastic containers which contained synthetic marijuana. Drug agents were notified, obtained a search warrant and arrested the men. POTcontinued from Page 1 In our house, we have a rule that has enabled us to live at peace with one another for over 42 years. That rule is simple, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. I must admit some rather close calls have challenged that relationship during those years. I will not say from which side of the house it came from; just that it was not my side of the house. It must be quite difficult for someone like the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage whom, I must confess is a neat freak, and Yours Truly who is just a plain old messy freak. My wife cannot relax if there is something out of place. On occasion, I will catch her glancing in the direction of my space and I know exactly what she is thinking. I do not always know what she is thinking, because that would be very taxing on my thinking machine. I know exactly what she is thinking. She wants to clean up my mess. Do you need any help tidying up your office? I know it is a ploy for her to get her organizing paws on my things and arrange them so I cannot find anything I want when I want it. Although it may not look like it to her, I am quite organized. I guess we have a different idea when it comes to organization. When I go to the cupboard in the kitchen, I know everything will be in its place. In the bathroom, the same thing goes. Everything is neatly put in its place. She knows where everything is and everything is Its my mess and I still love it Out to Pastor Dr. James Snyder where she wants it. Well, maybe not quite everything. There are those issues with me. To make matters worse, she has this idea of cleaning the house on a regular basis. Do you know how annoying it is to hear the vacuum cleaner running when trying to take a nap? Like clockwork, our vacuum cleaner takes its weekly, if not more, run throughout the house. Do you know how much electricity it takes to do that on a weekly basis? If I had to choose between dirt and electricity, I would choose dirt every time. My space is just a little bit different. I like to think of my space as actual living quarters. It may look like a mess to some Philistine, but I can assure you everything has a place and everything is in its place. I can find what I want when I want it, which is the only thing that really matters. If I cannot find what I need when I need it then I do not really need it. Life is that simple when you accept messy as a lifestyle. Just recently, my wife suggested that perhaps she could help me organize my office space. I just scowled at her and said, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. She smiled one of those sympathetic smiles she gives everyone she thinks does not know what is going on in the world. Quite frankly, I do not need to know what is going on in the world. All I need to know is what is going on in my world and I have several piles in my office I can consult on that topic. All offers to help me tidy up my mess go unheeded. I like my mess because it is my mess. I made it, I am proud of it and I love it. I have grown quite uneasy as of late. Every time I go away I come back to find some new remodeling project completed in our house. I am beginning to think she watches too much of This Old House. I spent a week in California only to come home and find the kitchen completely remodeled. Now, as I think the plan was, I do not know where anything in the kitchen is. All the old cupboards have been replaced by newer and bigger cupboards. I am afraid at this point to raise any kind of an objection. After all, we do have that my space/your space policy and I really do not want to jeopardize that in any fashion. My basic concern is this; I fear when I go for a week and come back my space will be so completely remodeled and organized that I will not recognize it and will not be able to find anything I need. What would I do then? Please see SNYDER, Page s10

Future blurryBY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenThe future path is blurry, even to our president. Assad will still be in power. How many has he killed without chemical weapons? Who is using the chemical weapons? It sounds to me like the real problem is the one issuing the orders in Syria. Americans are now on the verge of committing billions of dollars of money we do not have to impact an area of the world that already hates us. Here at home we have millions who cannot find a job. We have millions more who cannot feed their families with the paycheck they bring home. All the while our roads and bridges need desperate repair. We need new school buildings for our children. We have made our military do more with less but we continue to ask them to do more. We continue to put our aging seniors at risk as we make it harder for us to pay social security and cover our huge medical tab. Needless to say the tax debt for our children and grandchildren grows all the more. Syria means additional taxes, not less. Many of us can still remember how tired we were of Vietnam. My brother served a year in Vietnam and it was a long year for our family. Fortunately, he came home. An friend who lived just up the road named Junior was killed in Vietnam. I'll never forget his funeral. The expression on his father's face said it all when a finely dressed soldier handed him the folded American flag and expressed his appreciation on behalf of America for Junior's service. Vietnam went on for 12 long years. It was a senseless waste of at least 58,000 American lives and for so long it seemed it would never end. We endured Iraq for eight years and lost almost 4,500 more soldiers and yet today the country is in constant chaos. Today we have allowed Afghanistan to surpass Vietnam as our longest war. With all the noise about Syria do not forget we are still in Afghanistan. We will spend 100 billion dollars in Afghanistan this year and risk the lives of more American men and women. The story we are hearing about Syria keeps changing. We've been hearing about Syria for at least two years. Now we are hearing all the promises made by our president, secretary of state and others pertaining to our involvement. Over the months the promises will change, as there will be new developments, revelations and new commitments of weapons, food, soldiers and your money. Brace yourself because history is about to repeat itself and we're already tired. Glenn Mollette is an American Columnist and speaker.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion A pair of mass shootings So here we are again, trying to analyze the aftermath of a pair of mass shootings. This time it was at a government facility, the Washington Navy Yard, and a bunch of people at an outdoor basketball game in Chicago. The shooter in Washington killed 12 people, and then he himself was killed by police. Thirteen were shot in Chicago, including a 3-year-old, but no one died. There have been lots of tidbits coming out of Washington, but basically, no one knows why Aaron Alexis turned silently violent and gunned down workers at a U.S. Navy facility. We just got finished listening to the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people in late 2009 at Fort Hood, Texas. He was recently convicted of 13 counts of murder and sentenced to death. Now another military installation is the scene of a mass murder. You would think, of all places, that a Navy Yard and an Army fort would be safe havens. The incident also showed what we have said before the 24-hours instant news cycle isnt always the best way to get accurate information. We were told that there were three shooters, with one dead (that would have been Alexis). We were given the wrong name of the shooter. Eventually, the FBI and local authorities said there was only one shooter, and on Tuesday things calmed down around Washington, D.C. We heard some people ask why there was still an investigation going on, when there was only one shooter and he was dead. But we agree there should be more study into this incident. Is it true he had a valid pass? Stories Tuesday said he entered the base armed with a shotgun, and then got a handgun from a security guard he had killed. Didnt anyone think it was strange that a computer specialist walked onto a Navy base with a shotgun? He lived in Fort Worth, Texas, Seattle and Washington, and was reportedly born in New York. He was once arrested for discharging a firearm in his apartment, and it went through his ceiling into the apartment above. He told police he was cleaning his gun and it went off. Meanwhile, in Chicago, one of the most disturbing statements came from authorities, who said the park was not in gang territory, which started three blocks to the north and three blocks to the south. Oh, really? We didnt know there were lines painted on the road that said Gangs, dont cross. Obviously if the north group was going to take on the south group, and they both left home, where would they converge? At the park, of course. We know there are a lot of places in the country where you are not always safe. Now you can add military bases and basketball games to that list.

Well, obviously someone knew because Lt. Dennis Joiner, commander of the Southwest District of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, received a tip last week about the supposedly vacant store which once house a doughnut shop and, before that, a barbecue restaurant, people have said. Its located in a high traffic area along County Road 484, just a few blocks west of 200. Remember that column from a couple of weeks ago, when I said that the post office needed a map because they called this area Dunnellon? Well, that fact came into play last week. When you woke up and turned on the TV news, you saw reporters saying they were at a doughnut shop in Dunnellon. Im sure the folks in Dunnellon loved that, linking their city to this drug operation, when in reality it was 12 miles away. I stopped to take a picture of the sign and the shop that morning, and ran into the reporter for WESH-Channel 2 out of Orlando. I mentioned that people around here consider that area Ocala, and that State Road 200 was just a couple of blocks away, but she said she would stick with using Dunnellon. Hey, never let the facts stand in the way of a good story. She was following the line put out by the Sheriffs Office, which was using the mailing address. In the news release, though, the office gave the address with Dunnellon, but immediately added in parenthesis, just off State Road 200, giving perspective to the location. Anyhow, back to synthetic marijuana. I did a lot of reading to find out what it Sy nt he ti c mari juana? Wh o kn ew? Among Friends Jim Clark was and why it is illegal. After all, those electronic cigarettes arent subject to cigarette laws. Why is fake marijuana subject to pot laws? Turns out its the chemicals that are used to make the drug. The state has made those chemicals illegal, but every time they do, the manufacturers seem to change the chemicals. Still, its a drug that can get people high, and for that reason alone should be banned. And you know the manufacturers are in it for only one thing to get people hooked so they have to buy more and make the manufacturers rich. Well, four of them went to jail, including three on the scene and the person who had the lease, who was arrested later. Following these cases through the courts should be interesting. Two of them were from Tampa, the third from Texas, and no home address was available for the woman arrested later. Its obvious, though, that we are being infiltrated by out-of-town elements, and thats not good. Kudos to Lt. Joiner for following up on the tip he received. Lets all be alert to strange happenings and report them. Maybe we can cut into the drug trade, even if its only a little bit.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. Amilestone can be a goal, achievement record, or a high point. We have all celebrated milestones in our lives birthdays, anniversaries, the milestone when the end of treatment occurs for a disease. The list is long and some milestones are happier than others. Communities also have milestones and one was recently set at Del Webb Stone Creek. Del Webb Stone Creek recently sold its 1,000th home. Milestones in home selling at Del Webb Stone Creek were set as the first home, the 500th and 800th home and now the 1,000. During the course of the first to the 1,000 home sold, many other milestones have taken place at Del Webb Stone Creek. Clubs were chartered and now there are 26 clubs and 13 interest groups. New model homes were designed and now are part of the original homes sold. More choices selections were added as the new models were showcased. Del Webb Stone Creek community has continued to grow and the ultimate milestone of 4,000 homes will bring more residents from all over the country and parts outside of the U.S. The one constant here are the great people that we call neighbors. They support you in times of celebration and sorrow. The 1,000th home was sold by sales agent Stacey Franke. Stacey is a sales associate here at Del Webb Stone Creek and while she knew this milestone was approaching, she did not realize it would be one of her clients. Stacey said about this occasion, Of course I love being part of the process of building someone their home, from the drawings to walking through the finished home, but the best part of my job is the people. We are building the homes but the people are defining the neighborhood. Stone Creek is evolving based on the people moving in.

BY FRAN E. SZUTAR Special to the CitizenThe Sunday Arts Concert at Countryside Church for Oct. 13 will feature Dr. Sarah Satterfield and Arnold Irchai. The concert begins at 3 p.m. and includes works composed by Heitor VillaLobos (1887-1959) a native of Rio de Janerio. Villa-Lobos, essentially selftaught, produced over 1,000 works. For the second half of the concert, Satterfield and Irchal will perform selections by Jean Francaix born in LeMans, France. According to Satterfield the composer was known by his sense of humor, which comes through in his music. Irchai began studying the bassoon at the Leningrad Special Music School for Gifted Children and continued his studies at the State Leningrad Conservatory where he received his masters and doctorate degrees. He has performed with major symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas since his school years and has extensively performed solo recitals as well as chamber music recitals. During his career he has gained extensive teaching credentials at colleges and universities in the United States, Russia, Italy and Spain. Currently, he is the principal bassoonist for the Ocala Symphony Orchestra and the Gainesville Chamber Orchestra. Satterfield received a Ph.D. in Music History and Literature with an outside specialization in art from the University of Florida, a masters in Music in Flute Performance from San Diego Southern University and a bachelors in Music Education from Furman University. She performs regularly throughout Central Florida, has coordinated outeach performances in over 120 community venues in the southern California area and has performed in masters classes. Satterfield managed the San Diego State University symphony Orchestra and the Ocala Symphony Orchestra. She directs the Patriot Pipers, a flute ensemble she launched while at Central Florida Community College. The Sunday Arts Concerts at Countryside Presbyterian Church is located at 7768 S.W. Highway 200 in Ocala. For further information on future concerts call 352-237-4633. groups are being formed that reflect the hobbies and the interest of those moving in. I am looking forward to seeing how Stone Creek evolves with the next 1,000 homes! The honor of purchasing the 1,000th home goes to Rene and Dixie Tigcheler from the Netherlands. I was able to interview them via email to get a quote on why they chose Del Webb Stone Creek. Here is what they said. From the first time we visited Stone Creek three years ago in the spring we had a good feeling about the community. It was alive and full of friendly people, from the sales office staff to the residents! After visiting several other Del Webbs in various states, we knew Stone Creek is where we wanted to spend our retirement years. We would especially like to thank Stacey Franke, Susan Sugar, Mark Donovan and Jerry and Jane Siegel for all of their help with our new home. The two of us look forward to coming in October and making friendships in this active, sociable, caring community of Stone Creek. Bob Foisy is General Sales Manager: North Florida Division of this great community and he said, From the moment we gave the keys to the first homeowner at Del Webb Stone Creek, we knew it would be the residents who would truly make this community stand out. Just seven years later, as we welcome and celebrate our 1,000th homeowner, that statement couldnt be truer. This milestone proves that Del Webb Stone Creek is more than just a beautiful place to live; it is a thriving community of neighbors who have become best friends. That trickle effect can be seen in our sales and construction teams, lifestyle and property staff members, resident ambassadors, and the many other departments that work together to help make Del Webb Stone Creek a oneof-a-kind community. Like Bob, I have always said the greatest asset of Del Webb Stone Creek are the wonderful people here. So, as Del Webb Stone Creek completes this milestone of 1,000 homes, we look forward to many other wonderful milestones. On Sept. 25, the Lifestyle Office with the Sales Office is sponsoring a 1000th home celebration. Kim Krystopa and Melissa Hill will be coordinating this sold out event. Here is to Del Webb Stone Creek! Also on Sept. 25, Fitness Director, Judy Helfin, is hosting another Spa Day. It will take place from 10 to noon at the lan Span. There will be vendors like Home Instead Senior Care, Mary Kay Cosmetics, nutrition supplements, bags by Nora, jewelry made by Stone Creek residents and free chair massages. Judy will be serving nutritious snack and drinks. She will provide free body fat testing and there will be free 30 minute classes Zumba with Kitti from 10-10:30; Total body with Judy from 10:30 to 11; aqua fitness with Marta from 11-11:30 and beginner Tai Chi with Deb from 11:30-noon.

BY FRAN E. SZUTAR Special to the CitizenThe Sunday Arts Concert at Countryside Church for Oct. 13 will feature Dr. Sarah Satterfield and Arnold Irchai. The concert begins at 3 p.m. and includes works composed by Heitor VillaLobos (1887-1959) a native of Rio de Janerio. Villa-Lobos, essentially selftaught, produced over 1,000 works. For the second half of the concert, Satterfield and Irchal will perform selections by Jean Francaix born in LeMans, France. According to Satterfield the composer was known by his sense of humor, which comes through in his music. Irchai began studying the bassoon at the Leningrad Special Music School for Gifted Children and continued his studies at the State Leningrad Conservatory where he received his masters and doctorate degrees. He has performed with major symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas since his school years and has extensively performed solo recitals as well as chamber music recitals. During his career he has gained extensive teaching credentials at colleges and universities in the United States, Russia, Italy and Spain. Currently, he is the principal bassoonist for the Ocala Symphony Orchestra and the Gainesville Chamber Orchestra. Satterfield received a Ph.D. in Music History and Literature with an outside specialization in art from the University of Florida, a masters in Music in Flute Performance from San Diego Southern University and a bachelors in Music Education from Furman University. She performs regularly throughout Central Florida, has coordinated outeach performances in over 120 community venues in the southern California area and has performed in masters classes. Satterfield managed the San Diego State University symphony Orchestra and the Ocala Symphony Orchestra. She directs the Patriot Pipers, a flute ensemble she launched while at Central Florida Community College. The Sunday Arts Concerts at Countryside Presbyterian Church is located at 7768 S.W. Highway 200 in Ocala. For further information on future concerts call 352-237-4633. groups are being formed that reflect the hobbies and the interest of those moving in. I am looking forward to seeing how Stone Creek evolves with the next 1,000 homes! The honor of purchasing the 1,000th home goes to Rene and Dixie Tigcheler from the Netherlands. I was able to interview them via email to get a quote on why they chose Del Webb Stone Creek. Here is what they said. From the first time we visited Stone Creek three years ago in the spring we had a good feeling about the community. It was alive and full of friendly people, from the sales office staff to the residents! After visiting several other Del Webbs in various states, we knew Stone Creek is where we wanted to spend our retirement years. We would especially like to thank Stacey Franke, Susan Sugar, Mark Donovan and Jerry and Jane Siegel for all of their help with our new home. The two of us look forward to coming in October and making friendships in this active, sociable, caring community of Stone Creek. Bob Foisy is General Sales Manager: North Florida Division of this great community and he said, From the moment we gave the keys to the first homeowner at Del Webb Stone Creek, we knew it would be the residents who would truly make this community stand out. Just seven years later, as we welcome and celebrate our 1,000th homeowner, that statement couldnt be truer. This milestone proves that Del Webb Stone Creek is more than just a beautiful place to live; it is a thriving community of neighbors who have become best friends. That trickle effect can be seen in our sales and construction teams, lifestyle and property staff members, resident ambassadors, and the many other departments that work together to help make Del Webb Stone Creek a oneof-a-kind community. Like Bob, I have always said the greatest asset of Del Webb Stone Creek are the wonderful people here. So, as Del Webb Stone Creek completes this milestone of 1,000 homes, we look forward to many other wonderful milestones. On Sept. 25, the Lifestyle Office with the Sales Office is sponsoring a 1000th home celebration. Kim Krystopa and Melissa Hill will be coordinating this sold out event. Here is to Del Webb Stone Creek! Also on Sept. 25, Fitness Director, Judy Helfin, is hosting another Spa Day. It will take place from 10 to noon at the lan Span. There will be vendors like Home Instead Senior Care, Mary Kay Cosmetics, nutrition supplements, bags by Nora, jewelry made by Stone Creek residents and free chair massages. Judy will be serving nutritious snack and drinks. She will provide free body fat testing and there will be free 30 minute classes Zumba with Kitti from 10-10:30; Total body with Judy from 10:30 to 11; aqua fitness with Marta from 11-11:30 and beginner Tai Chi with Deb from 11:30-noon. September 25th will be a busy day at Del Webb Stone Creek as are many other days there. messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Wednesday, September 25, 2013 7 6 W ednesday, September 25, 2013 messengermessenger MESSENGER messengermessengermessengermessengermessengermessenger Christ the King The Rev.

Future blurryBY GLENN MOLLETTE Special to the CitizenThe future path is blurry, even to our president. Assad will still be in power. How many has he killed without chemical weapons? Who is using the chemical weapons? It sounds to me like the real problem is the one issuing the orders in Syria. Americans are now on the verge of committing billions of dollars of money we do not have to impact an area of the world that already hates us. Here at home we have millions who cannot find a job. We have millions more who cannot feed their families with the paycheck they bring home. All the while our roads and bridges need desperate repair. We need new school buildings for our children. We have made our military do more with less but we continue to ask them to do more. We continue to put our aging seniors at risk as we make it harder for us to pay social security and cover our huge medical tab. Needless to say the tax debt for our children and grandchildren grows all the more. Syria means additional taxes, not less. Many of us can still remember how tired we were of Vietnam. My brother served a year in Vietnam and it was a long year for our family. Fortunately, he came home. An friend who lived just up the road named Junior was killed in Vietnam. I'll never forget his funeral. The expression on his father's face said it all when a finely dressed soldier handed him the folded American flag and expressed his appreciation on behalf of America for Junior's service. Vietnam went on for 12 long years. It was a senseless waste of at least 58,000 American lives and for so long it seemed it would never end. We endured Iraq for eight years and lost almost 4,500 more soldiers and yet today the country is in constant chaos. Today we have allowed Afghanistan to surpass Vietnam as our longest war. With all the noise about Syria do not forget we are still in Afghanistan. We will spend 100 billion dollars in Afghanistan this year and risk the lives of more American men and women. The story we are hearing about Syria keeps changing. We've been hearing about Syria for at least two years. Now we are hearing all the promises made by our president, secretary of state and others pertaining to our involvement. Over the months the promises will change, as there will be new developments, revelations and new commitments of weapons, food, soldiers and your money. Brace yourself because history is about to repeat itself and we're already tired. Glenn Mollette is an American Columnist and speaker.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion A pair of mass shootings So here we are again, trying to analyze the aftermath of a pair of mass shootings. This time it was at a government facility, the Washington Navy Yard, and a bunch of people at an outdoor basketball game in Chicago. The shooter in Washington killed 12 people, and then he himself was killed by police. Thirteen were shot in Chicago, including a 3-year-old, but no one died. There have been lots of tidbits coming out of Washington, but basically, no one knows why Aaron Alexis turned silently violent and gunned down workers at a U.S. Navy facility. We just got finished listening to the trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 people in late 2009 at Fort Hood, Texas. He was recently convicted of 13 counts of murder and sentenced to death. Now another military installation is the scene of a mass murder. You would think, of all places, that a Navy Yard and an Army fort would be safe havens. The incident also showed what we have said before the 24-hours instant news cycle isnt always the best way to get accurate information. We were told that there were three shooters, with one dead (that would have been Alexis). We were given the wrong name of the shooter. Eventually, the FBI and local authorities said there was only one shooter, and on Tuesday things calmed down around Washington, D.C. We heard some people ask why there was still an investigation going on, when there was only one shooter and he was dead. But we agree there should be more study into this incident. Is it true he had a valid pass? Stories Tuesday said he entered the base armed with a shotgun, and then got a handgun from a security guard he had killed. Didnt anyone think it was strange that a computer specialist walked onto a Navy base with a shotgun? He lived in Fort Worth, Texas, Seattle and Washington, and was reportedly born in New York. He was once arrested for discharging a firearm in his apartment, and it went through his ceiling into the apartment above. He told police he was cleaning his gun and it went off. Meanwhile, in Chicago, one of the most disturbing statements came from authorities, who said the park was not in gang territory, which started three blocks to the north and three blocks to the south. Oh, really? We didnt know there were lines painted on the road that said Gangs, dont cross. Obviously if the north group was going to take on the south group, and they both left home, where would they converge? At the park, of course. We know there are a lot of places in the country where you are not always safe. Now you can add military bases and basketball games to that list.

Well, obviously someone knew because Lt. Dennis Joiner, commander of the Southwest District of the Marion County Sheriffs Office, received a tip last week about the supposedly vacant store which once house a doughnut shop and, before that, a barbecue restaurant, people have said. Its located in a high traffic area along County Road 484, just a few blocks west of 200. Remember that column from a couple of weeks ago, when I said that the post office needed a map because they called this area Dunnellon? Well, that fact came into play last week. When you woke up and turned on the TV news, you saw reporters saying they were at a doughnut shop in Dunnellon. Im sure the folks in Dunnellon loved that, linking their city to this drug operation, when in reality it was 12 miles away. I stopped to take a picture of the sign and the shop that morning, and ran into the reporter for WESH-Channel 2 out of Orlando. I mentioned that people around here consider that area Ocala, and that State Road 200 was just a couple of blocks away, but she said she would stick with using Dunnellon. Hey, never let the facts stand in the way of a good story. She was following the line put out by the Sheriffs Office, which was using the mailing address. In the news release, though, the office gave the address with Dunnellon, but immediately added in parenthesis, just off State Road 200, giving perspective to the location. Anyhow, back to synthetic marijuana. I did a lot of reading to find out what it Sy nt he ti c mari juana? Wh o kn ew? Among Friends Jim Clark was and why it is illegal. After all, those electronic cigarettes arent subject to cigarette laws. Why is fake marijuana subject to pot laws? Turns out its the chemicals that are used to make the drug. The state has made those chemicals illegal, but every time they do, the manufacturers seem to change the chemicals. Still, its a drug that can get people high, and for that reason alone should be banned. And you know the manufacturers are in it for only one thing to get people hooked so they have to buy more and make the manufacturers rich. Well, four of them went to jail, including three on the scene and the person who had the lease, who was arrested later. Following these cases through the courts should be interesting. Two of them were from Tampa, the third from Texas, and no home address was available for the woman arrested later. Its obvious, though, that we are being infiltrated by out-of-town elements, and thats not good. Kudos to Lt. Joiner for following up on the tip he received. Lets all be alert to strange happenings and report them. Maybe we can cut into the drug trade, even if its only a little bit.Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger. Amilestone can be a goal, achievement record, or a high point. We have all celebrated milestones in our lives birthdays, anniversaries, the milestone when the end of treatment occurs for a disease. The list is long and some milestones are happier than others. Communities also have milestones and one was recently set at Del Webb Stone Creek. Del Webb Stone Creek recently sold its 1,000th home. Milestones in home selling at Del Webb Stone Creek were set as the first home, the 500th and 800th home and now the 1,000. During the course of the first to the 1,000 home sold, many other milestones have taken place at Del Webb Stone Creek. Clubs were chartered and now there are 26 clubs and 13 interest groups. New model homes were designed and now are part of the original homes sold. More choices selections were added as the new models were showcased. Del Webb Stone Creek community has continued to grow and the ultimate milestone of 4,000 homes will bring more residents from all over the country and parts outside of the U.S. The one constant here are the great people that we call neighbors. They support you in times of celebration and sorrow. The 1,000th home was sold by sales agent Stacey Franke. Stacey is a sales associate here at Del Webb Stone Creek and while she knew this milestone was approaching, she did not realize it would be one of her clients. Stacey said about this occasion, Of course I love being part of the process of building someone their home, from the drawings to walking through the finished home, but the best part of my job is the people. We are building the homes but the people are defining the neighborhood. Stone Creek is evolving based on the people moving in.

After telling Joiner there were two other men inside, he gave the lieutenant permission to enter the store. According to the affidavit, once inside the business Lt. Joiner in plain view observed next to a pool table numerous bags containing packages of synthetic marijuana. To the right of the business Lt. Joiner observed several plastic table work stations. Lt. Joiner observed some of the tables had small plastic containers with empty packages of synthetic marijuana. Also in a back room Lt. Joiner located several plastic containers which contained synthetic marijuana. Drug agents were notified, obtained a search warrant and arrested the men. POTcontinued from Page 1 In our house, we have a rule that has enabled us to live at peace with one another for over 42 years. That rule is simple, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. I must admit some rather close calls have challenged that relationship during those years. I will not say from which side of the house it came from; just that it was not my side of the house. It must be quite difficult for someone like the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage whom, I must confess is a neat freak, and Yours Truly who is just a plain old messy freak. My wife cannot relax if there is something out of place. On occasion, I will catch her glancing in the direction of my space and I know exactly what she is thinking. I do not always know what she is thinking, because that would be very taxing on my thinking machine. I know exactly what she is thinking. She wants to clean up my mess. Do you need any help tidying up your office? I know it is a ploy for her to get her organizing paws on my things and arrange them so I cannot find anything I want when I want it. Although it may not look like it to her, I am quite organized. I guess we have a different idea when it comes to organization. When I go to the cupboard in the kitchen, I know everything will be in its place. In the bathroom, the same thing goes. Everything is neatly put in its place. She knows where everything is and everything is Its my mess and I still love it Out to Pastor Dr. James Snyder where she wants it. Well, maybe not quite everything. There are those issues with me. To make matters worse, she has this idea of cleaning the house on a regular basis. Do you know how annoying it is to hear the vacuum cleaner running when trying to take a nap? Like clockwork, our vacuum cleaner takes its weekly, if not more, run throughout the house. Do you know how much electricity it takes to do that on a weekly basis? If I had to choose between dirt and electricity, I would choose dirt every time. My space is just a little bit different. I like to think of my space as actual living quarters. It may look like a mess to some Philistine, but I can assure you everything has a place and everything is in its place. I can find what I want when I want it, which is the only thing that really matters. If I cannot find what I need when I need it then I do not really need it. Life is that simple when you accept messy as a lifestyle. Just recently, my wife suggested that perhaps she could help me organize my office space. I just scowled at her and said, Dont mess with my space and I wont mess with your space. She smiled one of those sympathetic smiles she gives everyone she thinks does not know what is going on in the world. Quite frankly, I do not need to know what is going on in the world. All I need to know is what is going on in my world and I have several piles in my office I can consult on that topic. All offers to help me tidy up my mess go unheeded. I like my mess because it is my mess. I made it, I am proud of it and I love it. I have grown quite uneasy as of late. Every time I go away I come back to find some new remodeling project completed in our house. I am beginning to think she watches too much of This Old House. I spent a week in California only to come home and find the kitchen completely remodeled. Now, as I think the plan was, I do not know where anything in the kitchen is. All the old cupboards have been replaced by newer and bigger cupboards. I am afraid at this point to raise any kind of an objection. After all, we do have that my space/your space policy and I really do not want to jeopardize that in any fashion. My basic concern is this; I fear when I go for a week and come back my space will be so completely remodeled and organized that I will not recognize it and will not be able to find anything I need. What would I do then? Please see SNYDER, Page s10

Can you imagine how awful it would be? It would be a sad day if I came home from some trip and found my mess completely gone. What would I do with my life? I would have to start life all over again and you know how expensive that is. It is tough married to a fix up guru; then again, I suppose it is just as hard to be wedded to a mess up guru. I have one concession in this area. David said it so well, Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow (Psalms 51:7 KJV). God specializes in cleaning up messes and preparing people like me for heaven.Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

You should have seen the hair-dos, poodle skirts, rolled-up jeans, and crinoline skirts. The entertainment was provided by Kathy and Tony Monjierio The Sounds of Time. They have been performing in the Villages for 16 years. Kathy really got the group going with various dances. The event began with the display of the old cars and motorcycles in the parking lot. While examining the cars and bikes we were provided music by Johnny D, who is a QM resident (Johnny also displayed his car). This music added to the festivities. We wish to thank everyone who contributed to the cruise-in. Seeing the old cars in such pristine condition shows that these owners have put in many hours restoring the older cars. Once you went inside the clubhouse there were more displays model cars and airplanes. Dom Mollica, Ron and Carol Mowrey, and Jack and Margene Sheidler were the exhibitors. We wish to thank Bill and Carol Sjogren for getting the participants for the outdoor show and Jack and Margene Sheidler for getting the indoor exhibit arranged. Once the music began inside the clubhouse everyone really got into the mood of the evening. You should have seen all the poodle skirts, crinolins, and saddle shoes! As the music of the 50s began many couples got on the dance floor and showed they still remembered the dances of our high school/college years. One dance was special for Ron and Marion Gartman it was their 35th wedCruise-in, sock hop draws enthusiastic crowd Quail Meadow Carolyn Slocumb Margene Sheidler with model cars.

The snack foods for the evening (prepared by Joan Christopher) were popcorn, Chex mix, potato chips, Ritz crackers, cheese balls, rice krispy treats, peanut butter, pretzels, Oreo cookies, and celery sticks. Along with the music and dancing there were also other events: a card game and guessing the number of pieces of bubble gum in the jar. Thanks to Sue Church for providing this entertainment.
