The private activities
In a recent letter published in another local newspaper titled “Do more than protest,” the writer censured persons who protest abortion at the local abortion clinic. The writer has the right to their opinion in this matter.
However, the writer has no right to presume to know the private activities of these pro-lifers regarding whether or not they volunteer assistance to abused, homeless, needy, or drug-addicted children. Many of those pro-lifers who stand in protest on Pine Avenue do volunteer time, shelter, and funding to such children. To assume otherwise in the absence of proof defines the writer as intellectually impaired.
The expansion of abortion since the 1973 so-called Roe versus Wade “law” and the increased expansion of abortion under the present administration, demands that there be voices objecting in every sector of society.
The pro-lifers who stand in front of the Ocala Pine Avenue abortion clinic have a constitutional right to be in the public square in affirmation of their support for the sanctity of life.
Admittedly, “legal” abortion cannot be curtailed or overturned by street protesting, but public protest of any defiling activity is a time-honored American tradition.
Our own pro-life ministry takes the battle to the Florida halls of legislature, the only venue where laws can be and have been enacted that in the future will restrict the number of abortions performed. We pray that restrictions will expand until legal abortion will collapse due to its own weakness.
For example, in the year 2011 five pro-life bills were signed into law for the State of Florida: (#1127) Sonogram, (#1247) stronger parental notification, (#97) no funding for abortion, (#1179) banned abortion funding by taxpayers, and (#501) more accountability of “Choose Life” license plate funds.
Our own activist pro-life ministry and all Florida pro-lifers will support legislators who work to legally oppose abortion.

CF sports very important part of the Ocala community
Response to Jim Clark’s recent commentary on sports at CF:
I respectfully disagree with the comments in South Marion Citizen Editor Jim Clark’s recent commentary, where he suggests that the College of Central Florida drop its sports programs; or limit the participation in those programs to locals only.
As an Oak Run resident, and a fan of many of CF’s sports teams; I was very disappointed to read such a negative commentary from the editor of our neighborhood paper.
If Mr. Clark’s suggestion were to happen, thousands of local sports fans would be deprived of watching athletes from Ocala, and the rest of the world, compete against the best JUCO athletes in the country.
It would be a huge step backward for CF, and for the Ocala community.
CF provides thousands of students at CF, as well as thousands of local fans, access to the best that Ocala has to offer for college sports.
Sports is a very important part of the college experience, as well as a great asset for our community.
We are blessed to be able to have some very fine CF athletes perform in front of CF students, and Ocala residents.
These college games provide good clean athletic entertainment for our community to enjoy.
 A number of CF graduate athletes have gone on to perform at the highest levels in college, and professional sports.
CF has a great educational, and sports legacy.
My wife and I have attended hundreds of CF athletic events, and also attend other cultural events on the CF campus. Mr. Clark, when was the last CF sporting event you attended?
Have you seen, and heard the many CF students, and local fans cheering at those games? I’m sure all of those folks would respectfully join me in booing your recent commentary.
Mr. Clark, if you do decide to attend a CF game, you will see many folks like me, and my wife there from the Ocala community.
Once there, perhaps you can let the fans, students, and the fine CF athletes, know of your interest in depriving all of us the enjoyment that local college sports has to offer.
Go CF Patriots!
