During today's board meeting,
Assistant County Administrator
Bill Kauffman introduced Mar-

Michael will help Marion
County leaders continue their
quest to stimulate diversified

existing infrastructure through
the infusion of new opportuni-
"Either choice must meet the
demands of our changing econ-
omy through use of new tech-

other areas."

The magnet school for
the arts' theatre depart-
ment, under the direction
of Janet Shelley, was se-
lected to perform at the
Edinburgh Fringe Festival

in August 2011 as part of
the American High School
Theatre Festival. The
board of advisors selected
the school for the honor
"Out of 1 500 hgh
schools nominated from
the United States and
Canada, West Port was one
of 75 schools selected to

perform," said Shelley
The school was nomi-
nated by Mary Britt of the
Ocala Civic Theatre and
Professor Earl Weaver of
the University of Central
Florida for the honor.
On Sept. 24 students are
planning a Howling at the
Moon event for dog lovers,
Chavez said.

The trip is expected to
cost $6,000 for each student
going. Fund raising efforts
are being planned to help
offset much of the cost.
Both students and par-
ents are "heavily involved"
in the fund raising efforts,
Shelley said.
West Port High School is
at 3733 S.W 80th Avenue.

Cost is $10 per person. Limit

It is oneo thae fir steps to teaching
children about the enjoyment of read-
ing. Most of us take the skills we use to
read a child's book for granted. We
read the book without giving it a sec-
ond thought.
To some, the act of reading is not
simple. Reading a book isn't possible.
Nineteen percent of our residents
can't read.
That's a number that should inspire
each and every one of us to do some-
thing to bring that number down.
Already more than 80 volunteers are
tutoring adults one-on-one with the
Mlarion County Literacy Council Inc.
Besides teaching reading, adults are
also helped to pass their high school
equivalency exam if necessary and to
learn English.
People learning I Edtra
and improving IEioil
their basic skill '
level have a better
chance to get a better paying job.
In addition, having a good labor pool
to pull workers from is something a
company looks for before relocating. It
doesn't make sense for someone to go
to the expense of moving to an area
and then not be able to fill the job of-
It takes volunteers to get the job
done of helping someone improve
their basic skills.
As with any organization, including
the literacy council, more volunteers
are always welcome and now more
than ever financial resources are also
most welcome.
With everyone facing tighter budg-
ets, money to give to worthy causes is
not as plentiful as it once was. Couple
that scenario with more people need-
ing financial help and social type pro-
grams to keep the power turned on it
is no wonder that such agencies are
strapped for money too.
Mlarion County's United Way pro-
gram helps fund many social programs
here in Mlarion County. By supporting
United Way we are in turn support-
ing the many organizations it supports.
When the opportunity presents it-
self, like eating out at a certain restau-
rant on a specific night because a
portion of the proceeds will benefit the
United Way, or by writing a check -we
need to help.

'Sickle Cell Heroes' needed
September is Sickle Cell Awareness
Month. There are about 70,000 Ameri-
cans who have this condition, which oc-
curs in one of every 500 African
American births making it one of the
most common genetic diseases in the
It affects the oxygen-carrying red
blood cells and may trigger painful and
life-threatening situations, including
crisis. The most common treatment for
patients, both during crisis and as a
preventive step, is blood transfusion.
For some patients, blood transfusions
are needed every month,
This large number of transfusions
brings it own problems, some of which
can be lessened by receiving blood
from closely matched donors. Life-
South calls these donors Sickle Cell
Heroes, and more are needed. Simply
by donating blood, you can find out if
you are one of these special lifesavers.
So, this month remember those with
sickle cell disease and help them by do-
nating blood.

A way out

Sis If I were president Obama I would
read up on how ED.R. got us out of the
cue Great Depression. As I understand it,
'un- he did not succeed at first.
Then he had Congress pass two acts:
1) The CCC Reforestation act. All
ge 7 young boys graduating from high
schools had a job awaiting them. This
act served two purposes it put men to
work and secondly it beautified some
western states with forestation.
2) The WEA. Act: One of the projects
Sof the WEA. was constructing the Blue
SRidge Parkway on the ridge of the Blue
Ridge Mlountains. The result of this act
was the Blue Ridge Parkway. All Sum-
mer long Americans travel this beauti-
ful highway and most don't realize it
came about as a result of ED.R.'s plan
to put guys to work. He got on the radio
frequently with his famous fireside
chats to assure Americans that "We
have nothing to fear but fear itself."
.In the U.S.A. there are oddles of jobs
like ED.R's three C.C.C. camps and

You can accuse me of being naive but I
am going to suggest one of them. We
have a water problem all over the coun-
try. MVy suggestion will save water. Put
men to work and help the economy.
MVost golf courses use clean drinking
water to water golf courses. Some golf
courses already use a system of recy-
cled water. The reason more don't do it
is because of the expense. Have Con-
gress pass a bill giving golf course own-

to install what is needed for such a sys-
ar- tem.
Finally, appoint a good practical
housewife as secretary of labor. Why?
Sometime my wife hates to come home
because when there she sees all that
me, has to be done. MVy wife never lets me
forget that a women's work is never
done. Women see when work needs to
be done. Congressmen can't see past

me out of many embar-
rassing situations.
The more I thought
about this, the more the
idea pleased me. MVy wife
has been working hard
lately and I thought she
about needed a nice little
surprise from Yours Truly.
I was the man for the job.

wI knew my wife was
going to be out of town for
most of the day, which
gave me plenty of time to
put my lan into action.
SThe frst thing on my
agenda was to go to the
grocery store and buy all
the necessary ingredients
for my barbecue. This was
going to be a barbecue to
end all barbecues. I love it
when a plan comes to-
I bought some wonder-
ful looking steaks, sweet
potatoes for roasting (my
wife loves sweet potatoes),
and equal portions of po-
tato salad and coleslaw.
"Having a barbecue?"
the cashier said with a
smile that almost touched
behind her head.
"Yea, I am surprising my
wife with a barbecue sup-
"You have any charcoal
for your grill?"
Whoops, that was not on
my list, but I am sure glad

coal and commenced to
strike a match. Nothing.
I struck another match
and had the same results.
With a little bit of panic I
looked at my watch and
knew that my wife would
be coming home soon. I
struck another match and
still the charcoal did not
light. I sprinkled a little
more lighter fluid on the
charcoal and struck an-
other match. Nothing.
I was beginning to run
out of time. I took the
lighter fluid and emptied
the entire can on my char-
cal and asI did it, I h ard
my wife's car come into
the driveway. I knew I had
to fly into action now.
I struck the match and
touched it to the charcoal
and the last thing I re-
hmbe dwastea rf ashe
ploding noise in my ears.
Then I felt pain. Pain in
my right hand.
I looked at my right
hand and saw that it was

aflame and burning rather
nicely. Then my wife came
through the back door
onto the patio just in time
to see me dance and yell
like a banshee.
The charcoal in the grill
was all ablaze and my
right hand burning out-of-
control my wife had the
audacity to look at me and
say, "Whatcha you doing?"
As we were eating our
potato salad and coleslaw,
I thought of a Bible verse.
"Wherefore let him that
thinketh he standeth take
heed lest he fall." (1
Corinthians 10:12 KJV).
MVy problem is I think
too much.

back, got a bag of charcoal
and brought it up to the
cashier. As she was ring-
ing it up she said, "Do you
have enough lighter fluid
to get all of the charcoal
Whoops, that was not on
my list either. I ran back
and got a can of lighter
fluid for the charcoal.
Everything seemed to
be in order, I paid the
cashier and as I headed
for the door, I was
whistling a familiar tune.
It was a long time since I
had done anything like
this, and I was rather
proud of myself for think-

Another key to this
whole surprise element
was time. I wanted to time
it so that when my wife
came through the door
she would smell the bar-

thing I needed to do was
get the barbecue grill
working in fine order. I as-
sembled what I consider

charcoal on the grill, set
the bag down and picked
up the can of lighter fluid.

Recent activities at the
Fairfield Clubhouse have
shown a renewed interest by
some of our less frequently
noticed neighbors. What a
wonderful surprise this is for
the Social Activities Commit-
tee made up of Charlene
Jarvis, Ann Bruno, and Dee
At our big Labor Day cele-

bration held Sunday after-
noon, Sept. 5, Charlene
Jarvis was almost over-
whelmed by the number of
people who joined in to
make the afternoon a rousing
success for everyone who at-
tended. This was even more
appreciated because of the
fact that Ann Bruno had been
called out of town by the
death of a close family mem-
ber and Dee McNeill had a
serious injury to her leg and
was unable to walk.

tically, "I want to thank all

urday to help set up for the

thing run so smoothly on

that many people who have
maybe hesitated to get in-

and made it such a success. I
really appreciate all that
everyone did. I know that

have made it clear repeat-
edly that they want all of our
neighbors to know that ideas

and suggestions are always
requested and happily re-
ceived. This is truly a com-

You will notice, in this ar-
ticle, God is spelled out; how-
ever, the Jewish people
would never completely spell
the word "God." It would be
written as G~d. This goes
back to the commandment of
not taking the Lord's name in
vain. Jews feel that if it is
written on a piece of paper
and that gets destroyed, it
would be considered a sin.
Rosh Hashanah is followed
by Yom Kippur that begins at

ends as night falls on Satur-

also known as the Day of
