  • Old-fashioned democracy in action

    One of the great joys the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and Yours Truly indulge in is attending our grandchildren’s softball games. The downside to all of this is being forced to watch other grandparent’s grandchildren play. Not to say they are not good, however, they do not quite measure up to our grandchildren. It is not their fault. After all, children cannot pick their grandparents.

  • Wings golf tourney ready to take off

    Just down the road apiece Preservist Bud Haedike, vice president of Wings of Freedom Aviation Museum, is promoting a campaign to raise funds to build an aviation museum which will preserve the history of military aviation, honor our veterans, and generate revenue at Dunnellon Airport.

    The Wings of Freedom is having its annual golf tournament fundraiser at Spruce Creek Golf Course, on State Road 200, three miles southwest of C.R. 484, on Saturday, May 31.

  • Running out of gas on road to ruin

    Plainly speaking, our government is clearly out of control in so many ways it’s not even funny. A lot of our real enemies are in Washington, D.C. Their actions daily are causing America to self-destruct. We are borrowing $2 billon a day from our enemy, China, to support our economy so the public won’t know how bad the current recession really is.

    If China wanted America to collapse, all they and the other creditors such as Japan would have to do is to call in our loans and notes. We could never pay up.

  • More 'Read'

    The crowd was busy at the Corridor's Liberty Community Park this month. The annual spring celebration "Read on the Green," drew children, parents, grandparents, neighbors and authors.

    The slideshow below shares some of the images from the event.

  • CD and DVD formats can be confusing

    Have you gone shopping for CDs and DVDs and viewed all sorts of formats? The question is which one to buy.

    First, let me talk about CD RW and DVD RW. These allow you to read, write, erase, and write again. This sounds great, but there is a problem since they do not act like an external or jump drive.

  • What's the latest at Market Street

    A few more stores have recently confirmed openings at the new Market Street at Heath Brook. One is Signature Day Spa and Artsy Abode, which specializes in “unique, one-of-a-kind home dcor, art, jewelry and gifts by American Craftsmen,” according to their Artsy Abode Web site.

    Dick’s Sporting Goods is projected to open on April 4, said general manager Perry Moore. The 50,000-sq. ft. sporting goods store features custom golf club fittings, a complete fishing and hunting section, a large selection of apparel and more.

  • Something as simple as water can be medicine

    Recently, we have considered the merits of simple, natural treatments for pain and other ailments. These centered on the increased delivery of oxygen to our cells.

    Cellular oxygen increased as a result of enhanced blood circulation. Chief among these was the use of ribose to enhance production of cellular energy.

    Then we encountered the unusual procedure developed by Dr. John Sarno. He employed stress-reduction techniques.

  • A health system that makes us sick

    We will pull back the curtain on America’s health care system with Sicko, Michael Moore’s docu-satire that exposes greedy HMOs, drug companies and congressmen who keep us ill, on March 21. Traveling to Canada, Britain, France and Cuba – where free universal health care is the norm – he forces the question: Why can’t this happen in the U.S?

    Marion County Supervisor of Elections Dee Brown has been invited to the Democratic Club meeting on April 19.

  • Smitty turns 100 - Communicator still a teen

    I expect that most, if not all, Corridor communities publish their own resident newsletter. It may be weekly, monthly or quarterly on one sheet of paper or more, but someone, somehow gathers, assembles and distributes their community’s news.

  • Oh, for the life of Rip van Winkle

    An item on the evening news pointed out a growing problem with many people, which they called sleep deprivation. I never heard of this before and until recently, I was never interested in this subject. Now, I find I am part of a big company.

    Whoever said misery loves company has never suffered from sleep deprivation. It does not comfort me in the least to know that other people have the same difficulty going to sleep at night. What would comfort me is a good night’s sleep.
