Political forums set for September On Thursday, Aug. 7, officers with the Marion County Sheriffs Office assisted with the execution of (5) search warrants and (5) arrest warrants. During this time, a use of force was used by these officers to affect an arrest of one of the wanted subjects. As a result of the agencys standard use of force review, the Sheriffs Office discovered that video existed depicting the officers actions which appeared to be potentially excessive. Sheriff Blair and his senior staff were briefed about the circumstances regarding this use of force, as well as reviewing the video taped evidence. Upon reviewing this information, immediate action was taken by Sheriff Blair to suspend all five officers involved in this arrest without pay and at the request of Sheriff Blair, contact was made with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to conduct an investigation of the incident who will work in conjunction with the State Attorneys Office. Suspended were Jesse Terrell, Trevor Fitzgerald, Cody Hoppel, James Amidei and Adam Crawford. Deputies probed for possible excessive force A nice place to liveKay Stifflear brushes and grooms Sable, her adorable little dog, whose personality is so amenable that it shows in her gaze at the camera.

Many of us use Priority Mail when sending something important that needs to arrive in 2 to 3 days, and also can be tracked along the way. Well, on July 23 I sent a Priority Mail envelope to a small town in Illinois; it was scheduled to arrive on the 25th. Upon checking on the tracking number, yes, it did leave Ocala, went to Jacksonville, Hazelwood, Missouri, out for delivery in Glen Carbon, Illinois. However, Glen Carbon said it wasnt able to deliver, so it was sent back to Ocala on the 30th, by way of Indianapolis. The recipient does live in Ocala in the winter, so thats the address it went to. Now, there was a forwarding address from Ocala to Illinois. So Ocala sent the package to Tampa, and finally to Hazelwood, Missouri on Aug. 7. My package reached its Illinois destination on Aug. 9. That little package had quite a trip! Where else could Great art show for Barbara Fife Quail Meadow Carolyn Slocumb you travel that many miles for under $10?

Before this date, the highest title was minister. Six U.S. presidents have served as foreign minister but no president has served as ambassador. To those nations, the face and voice of each ambassador is the voice and face of the U.S. So, why does Stone Creek have ambassadors? Stone Creek Resident Ambassadors meet prospective buyers and give the buyers their view of Stone Creek lifestyle. Any first-time buyer of a home at Stone Creek can become a Resident Ambassador. You will often see RA (Resident Ambassadors) wearing blue shirts showing prospective buyers the beautiful amenities here. These Resident Ambassadors may meet with those prospective buyers for golf, tennis, bocce, pickle ball, horseshoes or enjoy the beautiful resort pool. They may introduce a prospective buyer to one of the many classes at the lan Spa. If exercising is not the prospective buyers idea of fun, an Ambassador could take them to one of the charter club meetings or one of the interest groups that are available at Stone Creek. After all of these activities, the Resident Ambassador and party could enjoy a delicious meal at the Stone Creek Grille. What better way for a prospective buyer to get to know about the great lifestyle of Stone Creek than to meet and talk to a resident who is living here and enjoying the lifestyle. These residents are experiencing the wonderful amenities of Stone Creek and they can share their experiences of Stone Creek and the greater Ocala area. Ocala is wonderful community with so many cultural venues and Stone Creek is one of the wonders here in Ocala. Marge and Rick Casey have been active in Stone Creek since moving here four years ago. They have been Resident Ambassadors for three years, and have enjoyed meeting many people over the years. Rick said, We have become friends with some of the prospective buyers who bought homes here. When they buy, they already have a connection with someone living here. Rick and Marge can be seen checking in books, helping with lifestyle events as they are on the Social Committee. You can also see them helping out with bingo for the kitchen club and Rick is president of the Happy Feet Dance Club. Melissa Hill is in charge of the Resident Ambassador program which will begin a new class in September. She interviews residents and has them fill out a survey to see their interests. Her staff of Nikki Norris and Deb Jones will then place a Resident Ambassador with a prospective buyer based on interest or even geographical location of the former home of the RA and prospective buyer. We, at Stone Creek, have much to offer and sharing that with others is what a Resident Ambassador does. Melissa and her staff would like to thank the outgoing class of Resident Ambassadors for their work this past year. Welcome to the new class of Resident Ambassadors! New class of Resident Ambassadors arrives at Stone Creek Stone Creek Patricia Gizzi Marge and Rick Casey. Melissa Hill. Dance a little dance. Cotton Club Clients. Say hello to a flapper.

More on Page 5 William Wright, head of Las Vegas-based Chamber Insurance and Benefits. The IRS is trying to stop employers from dumping their workers in the exchanges by threatening fines of up to $36,500 per worker. But that fine only applies if an employer tries to subsidize his workers exchange coverage with untaxed income. So firms can still offload their employees onto the exchanges and even cover a portion of their premiums, as long as they do so with income thats taxed like regular wages. The IRS may not want employers to dump their workers into the exchanges. But the laws architects seem to want them to. Former Obama health adviser Ezekiel Emanuel predicts that within the next three years, a few big, blue-chip companies will announce their intention to stop providing health insurance. Then the floodgates will open. By 2025, he estimates, fewer than one in five Americans will get insurance through work. Another Obama ally, MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, recently admitted that employer-sponsored insurance isnt long for this world, calling it a crumbling building. As the employer insurance marketplace starts to crumble, President Obama continues to say of ObamaCare, this thing is working. Tens of millions of employees will soon find out what working really means when they are kicked off the health plans they were promised they could keep. Sally C.

These younger generations want to be close to the action and dont have the time or want the additional responsibilities that come with maintaining a house in the suburbs of Ocala. They want to be close to the action with quality entertainment and a good nightlife, and they want it within walking distance of where they live. The redevelopment of the old downtown Sprint building offers just that. Living downtown would provide grocery stores and two world-class medical facilities only a short drive away. Much shorter than what most of the residents in Marion County already experience. As for parking, does Mr. Clark really think the city building department is going to approve a development plan that doesnt provide ample parking for their residents? I highly doubt it... If you want to see a revitalized downtown, head up to Atlanta one weekend. Several areas in and around downtown have become the Mecca for both young professionals and young families alike. If you want a closer example, try Winter Garden or Dunedin. The City of Denver, Colorado and even Beaufort, South Carolina have had success revitalizing their downtown. These are a few examples of success stories that offer a great quality of life within walking distance from a residents doorstep. With the City of Ocala and Marion County quickly emerging as a technology hot spot, creating the type of atmosphere and quality of life to lure in these young professionals is key. The City of Ocala has done an excellent job at repositioning and revitalizing their downtown. The Ocala Theater, Tuscawilla Park, recently renovated downtown square and Citizens Circle, the soon to be renovated City Auditorium and the future linear park is helping attract those young professionals to live and work right here in Marion County. Andrew J orgensen Southwest O cala Media flames the fireIt is our American right to peacefully protest when we believe an injustice has been done. This right isnt reserved for any race or section of the country. What isnt anyones right is to destroy and loot anothers property! It certainly isnt right to make death threats against an individual, and it is idiotic to give out his name given these death threats. Unfortunately, we have a segment of our society that uses tragedies as their excuse to participate in violent demonstrations, destroying and looting innocent peoples property. They are so brazen in these acts that they could care less if their actions are being filmed, because they know they wont have to pay for these crimes. This latest incident in St. Louis isnt the first and it surely wont be the last until this type behavior is no longer tolerated anywhere in America, certainly not excused. Stopping these outrageous riots will be impossible until the media stops blaming the police force for reacting to the violence by using tear gas, etc. to break up the riots, despite the fact they are being targeted with violence by the demonstrators. They excuse the violent rioting while making the police officers the bad guys, although they know police wouldnt act that way to peaceful demonstrations. Hardly anything is said by the media about this violence and looting and how the offenders should be put behind bars. The media cant resist making such incidents appear all about race in their attempt to justify this behavior, as it first was with Zimmerman, even making a point as to the percent of white policemen vs. the black population. If we ever want to get rid of racism, the media must quit making reference to it every chance they get. If anything, they should question why the white population chooses to move out of these neighborhoods and try to correct the problem. The saddest thing in this whole situation is that we dont even have the complete and verifiable facts as to what happened to cause this incident. It may be found that the officer was totally within his rights to protect himself from attack by taking the actions he did, which unfortunately led to the death of a teenager. This is a possibility. Something has gone wrong when anyone, young or old, thinks it is ok to challenge/attack a law enforcement officer. Things havent changed that much. If the facts do determine that officer wasnt in the wrong, does that mean we will face more riots? Dont be surprised if we do. Too many are not interested in Justice, they simply want revenge. Wayne Rackley O calaNo respect?The basic question is why doesnt the president get any respect. To begin with he (and his backers) refuse to see any view other than their own. Second they change the rhetoric to fit the mood of the day. On the latter three years ago Mr. Obama took a victory lap on how he, as promised, extricated us from Iraq. Now that that country has imploded he says not to blame him for leaving as he had no choice because the Iraq government would not grant our troops immunity. Which is it? Then there is the anti-Obama, do nothing Republicans. From what I understand the House has sent upward of 300 bills to the Senate. They sit on Harry Reids desk. I assume they must be valid bills or else they would make it to the Senate floor where the Democrats would vote them down. Why else would they not reach the floor? Of course it could be the presidents forum, if you pass a bill I dont like, I will veto it!!! So why waste time. For five years over 300 Democrats in the House and Senate agreed with everything the president said and did. Not a single individual idea came from those bodies. Unity? Obedience? Fear? To be successful in life you have to see the other point of view it is based on lifes realities as that other person sees it, and it is real. As I told a self professed anti-war Democrat recently. If 99 percent of the world were against war, that leaves 70 million who favor it. (His expression was priceless) Republicans know this reality. Democrats wish it werent so. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. I consider myself to be socially liberal, fiscally conservative and believe in a strong military. There was one Democrat that fit that mold. Joe Lieberman and he ended up an Independent. There are several Republicans that seem to be there. Well see. Bill Riola O ak Run Happenings

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion School buses back on the road Once again those big yellow buses are wandering the highways and byways of Marion County, taking children to and from school. Classes for public school students began on Monday. Some private schools, including big ones such as Trinity Catholic High School and Blessed Trinity Elementary School, started earlier. Therefore, its time to review some of the most misunderstood traffic rules on the books in Florida. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a twolane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a fourlane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of five-lane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. So please, know the law and keep the children who are using the school buses safe. You can also save yourself some time and money in the process. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANMANAGER: JOHN MURPHYEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest column How ObamaCare will kill job-based health plansBY SALLY C. PIPES Special to the CitizenAmericans arent all that optimistic about ObamaCare, according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll: Fifty-seven percent say the law isnt working as planned. That number will shoot even higher if employer health insurance vanishes, as an S&P Capital IQ report predicts. The financial-research firm forecasts that 90 percent of Americans who now have employer-sponsored coverage will lose it by 2020 and have to turn to government exchanges for policies. The Obama administration has long denied that its health-reform law would cause companies to stop providing insurance. But thanks to an ObamaCarefueled increase in health costs, employer-sponsored coverage may soon become a thing of the past. The S&P report comes three years after the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. suggested that 30 percent of employers would dump workers into exchanges to save money. Democrats werent convinced. The White House attacked the McKinsey report as flawed; Senate Finance Committee then-Chairman Max Baucus blasted its faulty analysis and misguided conclusions. ObamaCares defenders even argued that more employers would provide health insurance once the law went into full effect. Recent history hasnt borne them out. Health-benefits consultants around the country report that businesses are considering dumping their leasthealthy employees onto the exchanges. By doing so, they can lower their own premiums and stick taxpayers with the tab for covering their most costly workers. North Carolina benefits consultant Todd Yates recently told Kaiser Health News about this trend, saying that employers are inquiring about it and brokers and consultants are advocating for it. Offloading workers onto the exchanges could pay huge dividends. According to the S&P Capital IQ report, if all employers with more than 50 workers adopted this strategy, theyd collectively save $3.25 trillion. Among 500 of the countrys biggest companies, the total savings could amount to $700 billion over 10 years. Firms will be hard pressed to leave these savings on the table especially as their costs shoot up. According to a recent study from the American Health Policy Institute, ObamaCare will saddle large firms those with more than 10,000 employees with an added $163 million to $200 million apiece in new costs over 10 years. Thats equivalent to $4,800 to $5,900 per worker. Brokers in Nevada are already reporting premium spikes of 35 to 120 percent for businesses in the state renewing their policies this year. Rate hikes of this magnitude could put 90,000 employer policies in the state at risk of cancellation, according to Reader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

But then, wheres the fun in life if you cant upset Gator fans? I am sick and tired of reading about, viewing, hearing about the Florida Gators football team, which is what has happened around here all summer. How many days until the first game? Whats the offensive line going to look like? What do the recruits for the 2015 season look like (we havent played 2014 yet)? Lets interview the coach and see if he thinks hes on the hot seat, etc., etc., etc. Its enough to drive a baseball fan mad. Heck, we were even getting football stories when the Gator softball team was winning a national championship. Id like to throw some numbers your way. Consider these. In 1970, the population of Marion County was about 70,000. As you can see, in the past 44 years weve had quite a boom around here. Lets say for the sake of argument that all 70,000 of those people were Gator football fans. Thats highly unlikely, but Ill give you the benefit of the doubt. Today, the population of Marion County is estimated at 337,000. Its safe to say that of those 267,000 people who grew this county since 1970, most of them came from somewhere else. Now, if those original 70,000 people are still around, and all of them are still Gator fans, they make up only about 20 percent of the population. To give you the benefit of the doubt again, well say that 100,000 people in Marion County (I doubt its that high) are Gator fans today. Thats just under 30 percent. So even with the most generous of estimates, 70 percent of the people who live in Marion County do not cheer for the Gators. Thats about 237,000 people Not everyone is a Florida Gator fan Among Friends Jim Clark in Marion County who really root for somebody else, if they care about college football at all. Remember, at least 267,000 of those people probably came from someplace else. They bring their sports allegiances with them. I was brought up in the New York area as part of the Subway Alumni and cheering for Notre Dame, something that continues to this day. Last week on a local road, I was behind a car with an Iowa State decal in the back window. There are Michigan fans, Ohio State fans, Penn State fans, Tennessee fans and, perish the thought, Alabama fans all throughout our fair county. So when I turn on the TV news, Ill probably turn it off when they come to what they generously call sports. Ill start following college football the day after the baseball season ends. Do you think the Tampa Bay Rays have enough left in the tank to make a run at an American League wild card spot despite trading David Price? Its coming down to crunch time between now and Oct. 1, and while college football teams are playing cupcake opponents (such as Florida vs. Rice), baseball will be deciding postseason lineups. Guess which one Im paying attention to?Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and the South Marion Citizen.

FAMILY FEATURES In kitchens, cafeterias and restaurants nationwide, our local food preferences may be unique, and our culinary traditions may be diverse, but we all share a common bond: a love for peanut butter. Affordable, nutritious and of course delicious, peanut butter is a staple found in most American homes, said Leslie Wagner, executive director of Southern Peanut Growers. While some parts of the country prefer their foods hot and spicy, others prefer savory or sweet. But no matter where you go, families love making peanuts or peanut butter a key ingredient in their favorite recipes. To celebrate the unique flavors from coast to coast, and to find the best hometown PB recipes, Southern Peanut Growers conducted its first PB My Way regional recipe contest. Peanut butter lovers nationwide submitted their recipes, from spicy stuffed peppers inspired by the South west to decadent chocolate bars in the Northeast. These are the top regional PB-powered recipes in our United States of Peanut Butter. For more recipes, visit www.peanutbutterlovers.com.

This week is a hallmark in the lives of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me. Forty-three years ago this week, we began a journey that has just become better with each year. That is the benefit of marrying up. Getting married was not something I had put together. Very few men put together their wedding plans. After all, that is why we get married. It came to me rather suddenly. I was at Bible college and one morning one of the guys in the dorm said to me, Congratulations. I just heard the good news. I smiled and nodded my head thinking about my plans for the day. I had no idea what he was talking about and at the time I did not have the time to ask him what he was talking about. Everybody I met that morning was congratulating me and telling me how happy they were for me. Soon I was beginning to wonder what in the world was going on. I did not have any test in any my classes yesterday so it could not be anything like that. I do not play the lottery so I could not have won the lottery. I could not think of anything I did yesterday that would cause all of this congratulatory remarks in my direction. Finally, when I had about as much as I could take, I asked somebody, What is everybody congratulating me for? The person that I queried looked at me, broke out in laughter and said, Man, you got to be kidding! Then he turned around, walking away laughing every step of the way. I went to my class, found my seat and got situated then one of the young ladies passed by, patted me on the shoulder and said, I am so happy for you and I think it is a wonderful thing. And I know you are going to be happy for the rest of your life. Well, I had had it. I looked at her and very firmly said, What are you so happy about? Your wedding, she said laughing, youre getting married. Oh, I said, nodding my head. Thank you very much. Then what she said dawned on me. I looked at her and said, Im getting what? Silly boy, she said, laughing hysterically, its all over campus so it must be true. I then had to think about this situation I was in. Everybody on the campus knew I was getting married, except me. Was I still sleeping? Was this just a dream I am having? I began to think about the events the preceding evening, and remembered a little conversation I had with the girl I was now supposed to be getting married to. In the course of our conversation, as I remembered it at the time, she said something to the effect, Wouldnt it be great to get married. As I recalled the conversation, I nodded my head and said something to the effect, Yea, I guess it would be. That was the end of the conversation as far as I was concerned, but the beginning of an ongoing conversation as far as someone else was concerned. Why is it that the groom-to-be is always the last one to know? Then I asked one of the girls in the hallway, When am I getting married? At the time, I did not have the foggiest idea. She turned away laughing and muttering to herself something to the effect that I had a really good sense of humor. Believe me, I was not laughing. As it turned out, me and the young lady I was to be married to, were engaged to be married and, I do not want to pry into this point very much, the wedding dress already purchased. As it turned out, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Looking back over life, most of the good things that have happened to me were never of my doing. Im convinced that is the way God works. If you are doing what you want to do, you are probably not doing what God wants you to do. At least I have developed that philosophy to this point of my life. Two little words that totally changed my life Out to Pastor Rev. James Snyder Please see PASTOR Page 9

Sadly, both Kay and her husband have experienced some serious health/wellness issues just lately, but their extraordinary home has not suffered any neglect. It is absolutely a work of art on so many levels. Congratulations to the Stifflears on having their home chosen as recipient of the award for August. Along with our congrats we send wishes for a speedy recovery to both. From Fairfield Village, ...the lively place filled with lovely people, we send wishes to all the youngsters in Ocala and Marion County for the beginning of what we hope will be an exceptionally successful school year.

After all these years, I can still remember that wonderful day when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were united in holy matrimony. Our wedding was rather simple and the focus point of the wedding was the wedding vows. When I said, I do it clinched the deal and I was married and I have been doing it ever since. I have said many words in my life, and written thousands and thousands of words, but the most important words that have changed my life were those words, I do. The Bible has a lot to say about marriage and husbands and wives. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it (Ephesians 5:24-25). There are some empty words that we use every day but every once in a while we say a word or two that fills our life with joy unspeakable and full of glory. Rev. James L.

This week is a hallmark in the lives of the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and me. Forty-three years ago this week, we began a journey that has just become better with each year. That is the benefit of marrying up. Getting married was not something I had put together. Very few men put together their wedding plans. After all, that is why we get married. It came to me rather suddenly. I was at Bible college and one morning one of the guys in the dorm said to me, Congratulations. I just heard the good news. I smiled and nodded my head thinking about my plans for the day. I had no idea what he was talking about and at the time I did not have the time to ask him what he was talking about. Everybody I met that morning was congratulating me and telling me how happy they were for me. Soon I was beginning to wonder what in the world was going on. I did not have any test in any my classes yesterday so it could not be anything like that. I do not play the lottery so I could not have won the lottery. I could not think of anything I did yesterday that would cause all of this congratulatory remarks in my direction. Finally, when I had about as much as I could take, I asked somebody, What is everybody congratulating me for? The person that I queried looked at me, broke out in laughter and said, Man, you got to be kidding! Then he turned around, walking away laughing every step of the way. I went to my class, found my seat and got situated then one of the young ladies passed by, patted me on the shoulder and said, I am so happy for you and I think it is a wonderful thing. And I know you are going to be happy for the rest of your life. Well, I had had it. I looked at her and very firmly said, What are you so happy about? Your wedding, she said laughing, youre getting married. Oh, I said, nodding my head. Thank you very much. Then what she said dawned on me. I looked at her and said, Im getting what? Silly boy, she said, laughing hysterically, its all over campus so it must be true. I then had to think about this situation I was in. Everybody on the campus knew I was getting married, except me. Was I still sleeping? Was this just a dream I am having? I began to think about the events the preceding evening, and remembered a little conversation I had with the girl I was now supposed to be getting married to. In the course of our conversation, as I remembered it at the time, she said something to the effect, Wouldnt it be great to get married. As I recalled the conversation, I nodded my head and said something to the effect, Yea, I guess it would be. That was the end of the conversation as far as I was concerned, but the beginning of an ongoing conversation as far as someone else was concerned. Why is it that the groom-to-be is always the last one to know? Then I asked one of the girls in the hallway, When am I getting married? At the time, I did not have the foggiest idea. She turned away laughing and muttering to herself something to the effect that I had a really good sense of humor. Believe me, I was not laughing. As it turned out, me and the young lady I was to be married to, were engaged to be married and, I do not want to pry into this point very much, the wedding dress already purchased. As it turned out, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Looking back over life, most of the good things that have happened to me were never of my doing. Im convinced that is the way God works. If you are doing what you want to do, you are probably not doing what God wants you to do. At least I have developed that philosophy to this point of my life.

State Road 200, suite 103, Ocala, FL 34481; or e-mail editor@westmarionmessenger.com Opinion School buses back on the road Once again those big yellow buses are wandering the highways and byways of Marion County, taking children to and from school. Classes for public school students began on Monday. Some private schools, including big ones such as Trinity Catholic High School and Blessed Trinity Elementary School, started earlier. Therefore, its time to review some of the most misunderstood traffic rules on the books in Florida. 1. If you are going in the same direction as a school bus, no matter how many lanes the road has, you must stop if the arm is extended and the red lights are on. It is prudent to not pass the bus when the yellow lights come on as the bus slows down, because they could change to red at any moment, and if theyre red and youre passing, watch out for the blue lights. 2. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a twolane road, and the arm is extended and the red lights come on, you must stop. No exceptions. 3. If you are going in the opposite direction as a school bus on a fourlane road, well, heres where it gets tricky. If the four-lane road has a median more than five feet wide, or a barrier to prevent normal crossing of foot traffic, you do not have to stop. It must, however, be a median (around here most are grass and/or plants). 4. However, if the four-lane road has no median or barrier, you must stop if you are going into the opposite direction. Around here, we have a number of five-lane roads, roads which have a turn lane in the middle. Those paved turn lanes are not medians, and you must stop. We see violations all the time on such streets as 27th Avenue West, 14th Street Northeast and roads like that. There are even small portions of U.S. 27 that have no divider or median, just a turn lane. So please, know the law and keep the children who are using the school buses safe. You can also save yourself some time and money in the process. Our Message PUBLISHER: GERRY MULLIGANMANAGER: JOHN MURPHYEDITOR: JIM CLARK MessengerWEST MARION Editorial Guest column How ObamaCare will kill job-based health plansBY SALLY C. PIPES Special to the CitizenAmericans arent all that optimistic about ObamaCare, according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll: Fifty-seven percent say the law isnt working as planned. That number will shoot even higher if employer health insurance vanishes, as an S&P Capital IQ report predicts. The financial-research firm forecasts that 90 percent of Americans who now have employer-sponsored coverage will lose it by 2020 and have to turn to government exchanges for policies. The Obama administration has long denied that its health-reform law would cause companies to stop providing insurance. But thanks to an ObamaCarefueled increase in health costs, employer-sponsored coverage may soon become a thing of the past. The S&P report comes three years after the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. suggested that 30 percent of employers would dump workers into exchanges to save money. Democrats werent convinced. The White House attacked the McKinsey report as flawed; Senate Finance Committee then-Chairman Max Baucus blasted its faulty analysis and misguided conclusions. ObamaCares defenders even argued that more employers would provide health insurance once the law went into full effect. Recent history hasnt borne them out. Health-benefits consultants around the country report that businesses are considering dumping their leasthealthy employees onto the exchanges. By doing so, they can lower their own premiums and stick taxpayers with the tab for covering their most costly workers. North Carolina benefits consultant Todd Yates recently told Kaiser Health News about this trend, saying that employers are inquiring about it and brokers and consultants are advocating for it. Offloading workers onto the exchanges could pay huge dividends. According to the S&P Capital IQ report, if all employers with more than 50 workers adopted this strategy, theyd collectively save $3.25 trillion. Among 500 of the countrys biggest companies, the total savings could amount to $700 billion over 10 years. Firms will be hard pressed to leave these savings on the table especially as their costs shoot up. According to a recent study from the American Health Policy Institute, ObamaCare will saddle large firms those with more than 10,000 employees with an added $163 million to $200 million apiece in new costs over 10 years. Thats equivalent to $4,800 to $5,900 per worker. Brokers in Nevada are already reporting premium spikes of 35 to 120 percent for businesses in the state renewing their policies this year. Rate hikes of this magnitude could put 90,000 employer policies in the state at risk of cancellation, according to Reader Opinions Invited The opinions expressed in West Marion Messenger editorials are the opinions of the editorial board of the newspaper.

But then, wheres the fun in life if you cant upset Gator fans? I am sick and tired of reading about, viewing, hearing about the Florida Gators football team, which is what has happened around here all summer. How many days until the first game? Whats the offensive line going to look like? What do the recruits for the 2015 season look like (we havent played 2014 yet)? Lets interview the coach and see if he thinks hes on the hot seat, etc., etc., etc. Its enough to drive a baseball fan mad. Heck, we were even getting football stories when the Gator softball team was winning a national championship. Id like to throw some numbers your way. Consider these. In 1970, the population of Marion County was about 70,000. As you can see, in the past 44 years weve had quite a boom around here. Lets say for the sake of argument that all 70,000 of those people were Gator football fans. Thats highly unlikely, but Ill give you the benefit of the doubt. Today, the population of Marion County is estimated at 337,000. Its safe to say that of those 267,000 people who grew this county since 1970, most of them came from somewhere else. Now, if those original 70,000 people are still around, and all of them are still Gator fans, they make up only about 20 percent of the population. To give you the benefit of the doubt again, well say that 100,000 people in Marion County (I doubt its that high) are Gator fans today. Thats just under 30 percent. So even with the most generous of estimates, 70 percent of the people who live in Marion County do not cheer for the Gators. Thats about 237,000 people Not everyone is a Florida Gator fan Among Friends Jim Clark in Marion County who really root for somebody else, if they care about college football at all. Remember, at least 267,000 of those people probably came from someplace else. They bring their sports allegiances with them. I was brought up in the New York area as part of the Subway Alumni and cheering for Notre Dame, something that continues to this day. Last week on a local road, I was behind a car with an Iowa State decal in the back window. There are Michigan fans, Ohio State fans, Penn State fans, Tennessee fans and, perish the thought, Alabama fans all throughout our fair county. So when I turn on the TV news, Ill probably turn it off when they come to what they generously call sports. Ill start following college football the day after the baseball season ends. Do you think the Tampa Bay Rays have enough left in the tank to make a run at an American League wild card spot despite trading David Price? Its coming down to crunch time between now and Oct. 1, and while college football teams are playing cupcake opponents (such as Florida vs. Rice), baseball will be deciding postseason lineups. Guess which one Im paying attention to?Jim Clark is the editor of the West Marion Messenger and the South Marion Citizen.

More on Page 5 William Wright, head of Las Vegas-based Chamber Insurance and Benefits. The IRS is trying to stop employers from dumping their workers in the exchanges by threatening fines of up to $36,500 per worker. But that fine only applies if an employer tries to subsidize his workers exchange coverage with untaxed income. So firms can still offload their employees onto the exchanges and even cover a portion of their premiums, as long as they do so with income thats taxed like regular wages. The IRS may not want employers to dump their workers into the exchanges. But the laws architects seem to want them to. Former Obama health adviser Ezekiel Emanuel predicts that within the next three years, a few big, blue-chip companies will announce their intention to stop providing health insurance. Then the floodgates will open. By 2025, he estimates, fewer than one in five Americans will get insurance through work. Another Obama ally, MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, recently admitted that employer-sponsored insurance isnt long for this world, calling it a crumbling building. As the employer insurance marketplace starts to crumble, President Obama continues to say of ObamaCare, this thing is working. Tens of millions of employees will soon find out what working really means when they are kicked off the health plans they were promised they could keep. Sally C. Pipes is President, CEO, and Taube Fellow in Health Care Studies at the Pacific Research Institute.

These younger generations want to be close to the action and dont have the time or want the additional responsibilities that come with maintaining a house in the suburbs of Ocala. They want to be close to the action with quality entertainment and a good nightlife, and they want it within walking distance of where they live. The redevelopment of the old downtown Sprint building offers just that. Living downtown would provide grocery stores and two world-class medical facilities only a short drive away. Much shorter than what most of the residents in Marion County already experience. As for parking, does Mr. Clark really think the city building department is going to approve a development plan that doesnt provide ample parking for their residents? I highly doubt it... If you want to see a revitalized downtown, head up to Atlanta one weekend. Several areas in and around downtown have become the Mecca for both young professionals and young families alike. If you want a closer example, try Winter Garden or Dunedin. The City of Denver, Colorado and even Beaufort, South Carolina have had success revitalizing their downtown. These are a few examples of success stories that offer a great quality of life within walking distance from a residents doorstep. With the City of Ocala and Marion County quickly emerging as a technology hot spot, creating the type of atmosphere and quality of life to lure in these young professionals is key. The City of Ocala has done an excellent job at repositioning and revitalizing their downtown. The Ocala Theater, Tuscawilla Park, recently renovated downtown square and Citizens Circle, the soon to be renovated City Auditorium and the future linear park is helping attract those young professionals to live and work right here in Marion County. Andrew J orgensen Southwest O cala Media flames the fireIt is our American right to peacefully protest when we believe an injustice has been done. This right isnt reserved for any race or section of the country. What isnt anyones right is to destroy and loot anothers property! It certainly isnt right to make death threats against an individual, and it is idiotic to give out his name given these death threats. Unfortunately, we have a segment of our society that uses tragedies as their excuse to participate in violent demonstrations, destroying and looting innocent peoples property. They are so brazen in these acts that they could care less if their actions are being filmed, because they know they wont have to pay for these crimes. This latest incident in St. Louis isnt the first and it surely wont be the last until this type behavior is no longer tolerated anywhere in America, certainly not excused. Stopping these outrageous riots will be impossible until the media stops blaming the police force for reacting to the violence by using tear gas, etc. to break up the riots, despite the fact they are being targeted with violence by the demonstrators. They excuse the violent rioting while making the police officers the bad guys, although they know police wouldnt act that way to peaceful demonstrations. Hardly anything is said by the media about this violence and looting and how the offenders should be put behind bars. The media cant resist making such incidents appear all about race in their attempt to justify this behavior, as it first was with Zimmerman, even making a point as to the percent of white policemen vs. the black population. If we ever want to get rid of racism, the media must quit making reference to it every chance they get. If anything, they should question why the white population chooses to move out of these neighborhoods and try to correct the problem. The saddest thing in this whole situation is that we dont even have the complete and verifiable facts as to what happened to cause this incident. It may be found that the officer was totally within his rights to protect himself from attack by taking the actions he did, which unfortunately led to the death of a teenager. This is a possibility. Something has gone wrong when anyone, young or old, thinks it is ok to challenge/attack a law enforcement officer. Things havent changed that much. If the facts do determine that officer wasnt in the wrong, does that mean we will face more riots? Dont be surprised if we do. Too many are not interested in Justice, they simply want revenge. Wayne Rackley O calaNo respect?The basic question is why doesnt the president get any respect. To begin with he (and his backers) refuse to see any view other than their own. Second they change the rhetoric to fit the mood of the day. On the latter three years ago Mr. Obama took a victory lap on how he, as promised, extricated us from Iraq. Now that that country has imploded he says not to blame him for leaving as he had no choice because the Iraq government would not grant our troops immunity. Which is it? Then there is the anti-Obama, do nothing Republicans. From what I understand the House has sent upward of 300 bills to the Senate. They sit on Harry Reids desk. I assume they must be valid bills or else they would make it to the Senate floor where the Democrats would vote them down. Why else would they not reach the floor? Of course it could be the presidents forum, if you pass a bill I dont like, I will veto it!!! So why waste time. For five years over 300 Democrats in the House and Senate agreed with everything the president said and did. Not a single individual idea came from those bodies. Unity? Obedience? Fear? To be successful in life you have to see the other point of view it is based on lifes realities as that other person sees it, and it is real. As I told a self professed anti-war Democrat recently. If 99 percent of the world were against war, that leaves 70 million who favor it. (His expression was priceless) Republicans know this reality. Democrats wish it werent so. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. I consider myself to be socially liberal, fiscally conservative and believe in a strong military. There was one Democrat that fit that mold. Joe Lieberman and he ended up an Independent. There are several Republicans that seem to be there. Well see. Bill Riola O ak Run Happenings

Before this date, the highest title was minister. Six U.S. presidents have served as foreign minister but no president has served as ambassador. To those nations, the face and voice of each ambassador is the voice and face of the U.S. So, why does Stone Creek have ambassadors? Stone Creek Resident Ambassadors meet prospective buyers and give the buyers their view of Stone Creek lifestyle. Any first-time buyer of a home at Stone Creek can become a Resident Ambassador. You will often see RA (Resident Ambassadors) wearing blue shirts showing prospective buyers the beautiful amenities here. These Resident Ambassadors may meet with those prospective buyers for golf, tennis, bocce, pickle ball, horseshoes or enjoy the beautiful resort pool. They may introduce a prospective buyer to one of the many classes at the lan Spa. If exercising is not the prospective buyers idea of fun, an Ambassador could take them to one of the charter club meetings or one of the interest groups that are available at Stone Creek. After all of these activities, the Resident Ambassador and party could enjoy a delicious meal at the Stone Creek Grille. What better way for a prospective buyer to get to know about the great lifestyle of Stone Creek than to meet and talk to a resident who is living here and enjoying the lifestyle. These residents are experiencing the wonderful amenities of Stone Creek and they can share their experiences of Stone Creek and the greater Ocala area. Ocala is wonderful community with so many cultural venues and Stone Creek is one of the wonders here in Ocala. Marge and Rick Casey have been active in Stone Creek since moving here four years ago. They have been Resident Ambassadors for three years, and have enjoyed meeting many people over the years. Rick said, We have become friends with some of the prospective buyers who bought homes here. When they buy, they already have a connection with someone living here. Rick and Marge can be seen checking in books, helping with lifestyle events as they are on the Social Committee. You can also see them helping out with bingo for the kitchen club and Rick is president of the Happy Feet Dance Club. Melissa Hill is in charge of the Resident Ambassador program which will begin a new class in September. She interviews residents and has them fill out a survey to see their interests. Her staff of Nikki Norris and Deb Jones will then place a Resident Ambassador with a prospective buyer based on interest or even geographical location of the former home of the RA and prospective buyer. We, at Stone Creek, have much to offer and sharing that with others is what a Resident Ambassador does. Melissa and her staff would like to thank the outgoing class of Resident Ambassadors for their work this past year. Welcome to the new class of Resident Ambassadors! New class of Resident Ambassadors arrives at Stone Creek Stone Creek Patricia Gizzi Marge and Rick Casey. Melissa Hill. Dance a little dance. Cotton Club Clients. Say hello to a flapper.

If you missed the reception, you can still view her paintings the remainder of this month at the Gallery East. Twenty-one of our Quail Meadow ladies enjoyed lunch at Blancas last week. The next luncheon is scheduled for Sept. 12 at Ocean Breeze Buffet. Many of you have inquired about getting a DVD of our 4th of July parade; it is now available, for a donation of $5. This money will go into the social fund for use in the upcoming events. Richard Gunther, Steve Kane, and Earle Talley have worked diligently putting this DVD together. I have viewed the DVD; it is great you wont be disappointed. Call Richard Gunther to purchase your copy. Ladies, mark your calendars for the Four Seasons Exchange that will take place in the clubhouse on Sept. 27. Check the QM Reporter for more details. Many of us use Priority Mail when sending something important that needs to arrive in 2 to 3 days, and also can be tracked along the way. Well, on July 23 I sent a Priority Mail envelope to a small town in Illinois; it was scheduled to arrive on the 25th. Upon checking on the tracking number, yes, it did leave Ocala, went to Jacksonville, Hazelwood, Missouri, out for delivery in Glen Carbon, Illinois. However, Glen Carbon said it wasnt able to deliver, so it was sent back to Ocala on the 30th, by way of Indianapolis. The recipient does live in Ocala in the winter, so thats the address it went to. Now, there was a forwarding address from Ocala to Illinois. So Ocala sent the package to Tampa, and finally to Hazelwood, Missouri on Aug. 7. My package reached its Illinois destination on Aug. 9. That little package had quite a trip! Where else could Great art show for Barbara Fife Quail Meadow Carolyn Slocumb you travel that many miles for under $10?

Political forums set for September On Thursday, Aug. 7, officers with the Marion County Sheriffs Office assisted with the execution of (5) search warrants and (5) arrest warrants. During this time, a use of force was used by these officers to affect an arrest of one of the wanted subjects. As a result of the agencys standard use of force review, the Sheriffs Office discovered that video existed depicting the officers actions which appeared to be potentially excessive. Sheriff Blair and his senior staff were briefed about the circumstances regarding this use of force, as well as reviewing the video taped evidence. Upon reviewing this information, immediate action was taken by Sheriff Blair to suspend all five officers involved in this arrest without pay and at the request of Sheriff Blair, contact was made with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to conduct an investigation of the incident who will work in conjunction with the State Attorneys Office. Suspended were Jesse Terrell, Trevor Fitzgerald, Cody Hoppel, James Amidei and Adam Crawford.
