ALACHUA With the
April 10 election in Alachua
fast approaching, few issues
have yet to be discussed
among the candidates. That's
probably due to the off-again
on-again nature of the 2007
election that was and then
wasn't and then was once
again going to take place.
Alachua commission
candidate Michael Perkins is
facing off against Charles
Grapski and incumbent
Commissioner Bonnie
Burgess in the election. But
Perkins has been facing
battles in the .courtroom for
several years.


Required reports
Most recently, H&R
Block Eastern Enterprises,.
Inc. filed suit against Perkins
last May when the company
alleged Perkins, "has
solicited and provided tax
preparation services to
clients of H&R Block.. .since
[Perkins'] employment with,
H&R Block ended." That's a
violation of an employment
agreement Perkins had with
H&R Block when he worked
for the tax preparation
company from December
2004 to November 2005,
According to the federal court
case.
H&R Block attorneys

"FIX UP TO
SELL" LONG
BEFORE YOU
SELL

Real estate agents
sometimes receive calls from
people who are asking for
advice on what they should
do to prepare their house for
the market. They may have
settled for living in a "less
than optimal" circumstance
for years, and are now going
to spend money to make it
nice for someone else to
enjoy.
If you are considering
painting, updating the
kitchen, landscaping, or any
other improvements that
would increase your home's
re-sale value, think about
making those improvements
while you are still there to
enjoy them. Create your own
dream kitchen or Jacuzzi,
your garden deck, or restore
your wood floors now.
Maintaining your property
well will make your home
more enjoyable, will help
maintain the property values
in your neighborhood, and
will expedite the sale of your
home when you are ready for
a move.
If you would like information
about buying or selling your
property, call me. I will work hard
until we locate that perfect home or
piece of land. I am available to
assist you. Call, e-mail or stop by
the office and see me. It would be
my pleasure to help. 352-514-4315

Nematodes and nano-particles
Biotech in our backyard


By DAVID WISENER
Today Reporter


What do nematodes and nano-particles
have in common?
Each is being researched by biotechnology
companies Pasteuria Bioscience and
Nanotherapeutics, respectively, in the
University of Florida Sid Martin Biotechnology
Development Incubator located in the Progress
Corporate Park ofAlachua.
Pasteuria Bioscience is developing groups
of naturally-occurring bacteria that attack
nematodes said CEO Kelly Smith. Nematodes
are roundworms that can cause diseases in
plants, animals and humans, and Pasteuria
specializes in dealing with those affecting
agriculture.
"There's a bad reputation for biological pest
control as far as effectiveness goes," Smith said.
"We're focused on proving our products are
effective. Basically, the bacteria attacks only
nematodes and are nontoxic to everything but
nematodes, so it's a lot safer than chemical
pesticides."
Pasteuria has several products under
development for turf, root vegetables, peanuts,
cotton and soybeans.
"So far we've been focused on research and

performing small-scale plot trials, but we're
getting ready to begin large-scale testing this
year," Smith said.
Smith pointed out that the future for
biological pest controls should be bright since
they should be cheaper in the long run than
chemical pesticides since companies wouldn't
have to deal with safety and environmental
issues associated with chemicals.
She also noted that chemical pesticides
mainly work to control nematodes, whereas
biological controls could prevent nematodes
from interacting with certain plants altogether.
Smith praised the work of the Sid Martin
Incubator as being critical to her company's
success and even existence.
"I can't say enough good things about the
incubator," she said. "We require a lot of
equipment, and the incubator provides services
we couldn't afford otherwise.
"We were concerned for a long time that we
wouldn't be able to stay in the area, but the
incubator has allowed us to do so."
Nanotherapeutics CEO Chuck Soponis
concurred with Smith in singing the incubator's
praises.
"If you had to make a blueprint on how to
start an incubator, I don't think I'd change a
thing," Soponis said.

"We wouldn't have access to equipment,
couldn't pay rent anywhere else. It allows you
to grow technology for very little money. If this
wasn't here, all these people would be at the
University of Florida with no way to get their
products out in the market."
Nanotherapeutics specializes in developing
drugs and related products that are more
effective in their delivery through the use of
nano-particles.
The company just received approval for its
first product, a bone paste to be produced by
Blackstone Medical.
"We're also developing other products, one
an antimicrobial treatment for chronic wounds,
another for diabetes, and we're doing work on
an inhaled antibiotic," Soponis said.
Nanotherapeutics will be "graduating" from
the incubator in May, which means it will be
moving out and supporting itself in its own
office and lab space across the street from the
incubator in the Progress Corporate Park.
Soponis credited the success of the
company to good business practices.
"I've been doing this for 25 years, and most
biotech businesses don't fail because of their
technology but because of a lack of money," he
said.

Endodontics


Q. What is endodontics?
A: Endodontics is the
field of dentistry that
specializes in care of the
dental pulp, the soft material
inside the tooth. You may be
referred to an endodontist if
you need, for instance, a root
canal procedure, which is
treatment of the pulp.
"Endodontics is one of nine
dental specialty areas
recognized by the American
Dental Association. The other
are dental public health,
including the study of trends,
establishment of public health
programs and .dissemination
of information; endodontics,
which deals with the nerve of


the tooth; orthodontics, which
involves straightening teeth;
pedodontics, which
specializes in the treatment of
children; periodontics, which
is concerned with the teeth's
supporting structures, namely
the gums and jaw; and the
fields of oral and
maxillofacial pathology,
radiology and surgery.
All dentists have the same
basic training. Specialists go
on for post-graduate training.
Ask your dentist for more
information about dental
specialty areas and especially
if you might benefit from the
attention of a specialist.

Christ, our perfect exam


e


During Lent, Christians
often ask about the best way to
observe the season, e.g., give up
chocolate, meat, or some of my
activities. Should I devote more
time to prayer, Bible study, and
helping those in need?
These are decisions we must
make on our own, but here are
some guidelines some basic
instructions to help you to start
on your Lenten pilgrimage.
History and human
experience have taught us that
temptations in life can cause us
to fall into one of two
bottomless pits: One is
Puritanical piety and the other is
indulgence in carnal pleasures.
Puritanical piety brings up
images of a fire and brimstone
revival-preacher crying out
against all human pleasures;
while the other path conjures up
familiar images of the sexual
antics that are the topics of news
and gossip shows. There is
extreme religiosity on the one
hand and total depravity on the
other. They are parallel paths
that lead to the same pit of
spiritual destruction. If ever we
needed to return to a proper
understanding of the Lenten
season, it is now.
Satan's temptation of our
Lord and His response is the
perfect example for us during
Lent. It is crucial that we
pattern ourselves after Christ,


otherwise our efforts of self-
denial and discipline make us
no better than the religious
hypocrites whom Christ called
white-washed sepulchers. We
must consider Christ alone; He
is the perfect example of what it
means to draw near to God in
fasting, suffering, and
sacrifice-He fasted, suffered,
and sacrificed as man, being
tempted as a man even as we


are, yet without
sin.
C h r i st s
temptation in the
wilderness
happened after
His baptism; after
He had been set
apart for priestly
ministry; and,
after the
confirmation of
His heavenly
Father who
announced that
this was His
beloved Son, in
whdm He is well
pleased. This is
an important

moment in the life of Jesus-
and it is times like this that
Satan challenges us. No time is
so dangerous for our being
tempted than when our self
confidence is at a peak.
St. Matthew demonstrates
clearly the systematic attack

aimed at man's soul. The first
attack is made at the physical
level, the second at the spiritual
level.
The First temptation Satan
puts before Jesus is to change
stones to bread to satisfy His
hunger. This temptation shows
that man is physical; that needs
come down to his physical
desires. Saint Paul states it
well, that, "their god is their
belly." The world
has larned how to
make the most of this
S temptation and the
S Church tends to
portray Christianity
as an easy "belief-
ism," only requiring
a decision for Christ,
and followed by a
rosy path of comfort,
prosperity, and
John eternal bliss. It
John
ignores the response
glican that Jesus gives to
esville. this temptation,
le where He reminds us
scopal that man is more
than a physical being
and that true
sustenance comes from God
alone. To go without the Word
of God and the Sacraments
instituted by Christ, is to live a
life of spiritual anemia. Lent is
a time to immerse our soul in
the life of God, to indulge
ourselves in His presence.
The Second temptation is
the reverse. The devil suggests
that if man is truly spiritual, the
way to prove it is to destroy his
body and liberate his soul to
enjoy true spirituality. This
distorted philosophy suggests
that true Faith will not tolerate
human relationships, jobs, or
any kind of physical pleasures.
Jesus condemns such thinking
and proclaims that true Faith is
to consecrate oneself to the


service of God. So Lent is also
a season of taking that which
God has graciously added to our
life, and submitting it to Him
for His blessing. We must
follow the example of Christ
who, when He took bread, lifted
it up and gave thanks, then He
broke it and distributed it for the
blessing of others.
These days, the same
temptations confronted by
Christ are surrounding us. Our
Lenten Season will only be
beneficial if we face these
temptations as He directed us
through His holy example. The
Epistle to the Hebrews brings
this point close to home:
(Hebrews 2: 17-18) Wherefore
in all things it behoved him to
be made like unto [his]


brethren, that he might be a
merciful and faithful high priest
in things [pertaining] to God, to
make reconciliation for the sins
of the people. For in that he
himself hath suffered being
tempted, he is able to succour
them that are tempted.


May God give us grace to
persevere in the face of
temptation and lead us to holy
living through the power of the
Spirit-and in the love of Jesus
Christ.

Oak View Middle School science


Santa Fe High student takes first place


1in national music competition
students selected for national event

By DAN REID students who are interested in science, math, and


Today Reporter


NEWBERRY-Students from Oak View
Middle School's science department have been
selected to participate in this year's Toychallenge
at the San Diego & Space Museum scheduled for
April 21-22.
Oak View was one of 150 schools selected out
of 400 applicants to participate in the annual
event. The purpose of the challenge is to offer
students in the fifth through eighth grades a
chance to create a new toy or game that is outside
the realm of science. The event helps students
learn a sense of teamwork, become familiar with
engineering design processes, and builds' self-
confidence.
Toychallenge was created by the Sally Ride
Science Foundation to help support female


technology. However, the event is opened to borI
boys and girls.
Oak View Middle School Science teacher Phil
Riley said his students are outstanding and ready
to take on the challenge of being in a national
event. Riley said he was thrilled when he got the
news of Oak View being selected as one the
schools to travel to San Diego.
"When we got notified, my heart soared," said
Riley.
Thus far the school has raised $1,200 for the
trip to San Diego. However, the goal is to raise
$5,000 for the students. Riley said students will
be at the Newberry Hitchcocks on April 7 to
accept donations.
Donations for the students will also be
accepted at Oak View Middle School.

Special to Alachua County Today
Tamara Vaughn, a freshman
at Santa Fe High School, has
taken first place in her age
category in the 2007 National
Trumpet Competition.
Vaughn recently traveled to
Virginia to compete in the finals
of the competition, performing
the first movement of the
Concerto for Trumpet by J.M.
Hummel for a panel of judges.
Her performance earned her top
honors in her age category of 11
to 14-year-olds. As a result of
the first place finish, she won a
plaque and a new trumpet.
"I couldn't stop smiling,"
Tamara said about learning
she'd won her division. "I just
had this overall feeling of
enjoyment."
Vaughn said she went into
the competition determined to
do her best but knowing that
whatever the result, the
experience was going to be
valuable.
"I met a lot of important
people, I made a lot of friends
from all over the country and I
learned a lot from the
professors and musicians
there," she said. "It was really
fun."
SVaughn has been playing the
trumpet for five years, and
devotes much of her time to her
instrument. She's currently


taking two music courses at
Santa Fe High School and takes
lessons outside of school from
two different instructors. Dan
Schilling, adjunct professor of
trumpet at the University of
Florida and Kathy LaVay,
currently the band director at
Howard Bishop Middle School,
both say Vaughn's dedication to
her music sets her apart from
many other young'musicians.
"She has an unbelievable
work ethic," said Schilling.
"Tamara sets her goals and then
does everything she needs to do
to achieve them."
"Tamara is easily the most
disciplined,, focused and
humble student I have ever had


DAN REID/Alachua County Today
in my 22 years of teaching,"
said LaVay.
Vaughn says she's been
getting plenty of
congratulations from the staff
and students at Santa Fe High
School since returning from the
competition. Principal Bill
Herschleb says the entire school
community is thrilled about her
success.
"We -knew she was
remarkably talented, but we
didn't know what to expect
from her competition," he said.
"There is a lot of excitement
here about having someone
from our school recognized at
the national level."

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2007 A7


ContnuedompageAl Faulk praises Santa Fe administration for their handling of Tuesday's fights


for battery, while the third
student involved was arrested
for two juvenile violations of
probation warrants.
Alachua County School
Board spokesperson Jackie
Johnson said the school went
into a modified lockdown after
the two fights, adding that the
situation was calm at the school
afterward. During a portion of
the day students were escorted
between classes by school staff
members.
Johnson credits the
administration and faculty at the
school for keeping things calm
in the face of a potentially


dangerous situation.
"They did a very good job,"
said Johnson.
Johnson said the four
students who were arrested
have been suspended from the
school until the end of spring
break, which is scheduled for
April 2 6, and may face the
possibility of expulsion. In the
meantime, Faulk said the school
will conduct a separate
investigation on the four
students for violation of the
code of student conduct.
According to Johnson the
two fights stemmed from
rivalries between certain


neighborhoods in High Springs
and Alachua. She said the Santa
Fe High administration has told
her they will hold a meeting in
the near future for parents that
will involve school officials,
law enforcement personnel, and
city officials from both
municipalities.
Santa Fe High Principal Bill
Herschleb said the remainder of
the student body reacted
appropriately during the
altercations, adding that most
students want their campus to
be a good learning environment.
Faulk said additional
deputies were on hand at the


school on Wednesday morning
so the events of the previous
day would not escalate. He also
said the administration at the
school did a great job in keeping
everything under control at the
school, and if not for their
handling of the situation, there
would have been more of a
police presence required at the


school.
"They were very helpful to
us," said Faulk.
According to Faulk there
was apprehension on the part of
the student body during the
morning, but said Principal
Herschleb and his staff did
everything they could to make
the entire campus at ease.


Faulk said it was important
to quell any rumors that were
going on about the two
incidents so the situation
wouldn't escalate any further.
"We wanted to defuse the
situation and made sure the
proper information got out,"
said Faulk.

Commissioner promoting


Newberry as an official tree city


the ways the.city can be made more
visually attractive. Conrad believes
the City needs a streetscape
ordinance to deal with the
proliferation of news racks that are
located on Department of
Transportation right-of-ways. He
said the ordinance would relocate
racks as well as cigarette butt cans to
other areas that are not near
highways.
Conrad also recommended to
the Commission that existing pear
trees should be removed, and
instead be replaced by holly trees.
Other beautification projects would
include planting bedding plants in
wells, and a new garden near the
Newbeny Municipal Building.
On Tuesday Conrad said he'd
like to see Newbeny become an
official tree city like Gainesville and
plant between 20 and 30 trees year.
Conrad adds he wants fellow
commissioners to look at some of
the town's streets to plan a canopy of

You HAVE to check this
restaurant out.!!!! The Ivy
House at 106 NW Main
Street in Williston has the
best down home southern
cooking; and being from
southern Maine I feel I am
well qualified to opine. The
crispy chicken, homemade
macaroni and cheese and
the baby string beans with
just a hint of added
sweetness, are truly the best
I have ever had. The rolls
are indescribably delicious
with a rich, yeasty flavor
and slightly doughy
consistency that makes
butter unnecessary. The
corn bread must be a family
secret as well moist, with
chunks of corn and was that
cheese??? Terrific!!!!! We
also tasted their famous
shrimp, fried to perfection
and sampled no less than
four of their irresistible
home baked desserts.
This is my new favorite
restaurant. I wish they had
one just like it in beautiful
downtown Alachua. The
d6cor of each dining area
will be a pleasing surprise
for you and upstairs in this
charming converted home
are several rooms of unique
gifts. Open for lunch 11-2
and for supper on Friday
and Saturday evenings 5-8
PM. Call 352-528-5410 for
reservations and more
information, or you can find
their website by searching
for the Ivy House. Finally, a

catering, as well.

From one Boomer to another


If you were born between 1946 and 1964, you
belong to a group of Americans that have had a
significant influence on this country and the world.
Yes, I'm talking about the Baby Boomer. I belong to
the Baby Boomer generation and so do more than 70
million other Americans.
Apparently there are people among us who believe
it is virtually a matter of national security to track Baby
Boomers. These folks, who apparently have nothing to
live for, will point out that during the Baby Boomer
years, 1946-1964, 75.8 million Americans were born.
And today, Boomers represent 28-percent of the U.S.


population. But that pales in comparison
to 1964 when Boomers represented nearly
40-percent of the population meaning
that more than a third of the population
was under 19 years of age.
Having raised five teenagers, that's a
scary thought.
It's no wonder then, that the 60s have
been called at various times, "the decade
Sof discontent," and "the decade of peace,
love, and harmony."
But nothing lasts forever, and in 2007,
Boomers range in age between 43 and 61
years old. And get this, for the next 18
years, a Boomer will turn 60 years old at
the rate of one every seven seconds.


maybe they are trying to find a sympathetic ear in
someone who can have compassion with what is
turning into a national pastime making fun of Baby
Boomers.
But really, some of these jokes are hilarious.
Because while many Baby Boomers are aging like
that fine wine we have all heard about, others are more
like prune juice that nobody wants to hear about. And
thus, the opportunity for the all out assault with Baby
Boomer humor abounds. From the popular fads back in
the day (does anyone remember or care to remember
no-go dancers) such as big hair fast cars and loud


/t


ELLEN BOUKARI
Today Columnist


That's a lot of prune juice ... and Grecian Gray.
And opportunities for jokes...at the expense of the
Boomers.
Forget blonde jokes, or mother-in-law jokes this is
the decade of Baby Boomer jokes.
And it's only the beginning.
These days my email inbox is filled with jokes
about Baby Boomers and offers from AARP.
Understandably, I could be aggravated at the senders
who are taking potshots at Baby Boomers, but these
folks are Baby Boomers. And theoretically anyway,


O a V .-I .-
music that drove our parents crazy, we
SBaby Boomers have much to offer that
:L. can be exploited all in good fun of
i"..'fl? -w course.


Some of the music of the Baby
Boomer generation remains popular
today. But even these classics aren't
immune to Baby Boomer humor.
Since my Baby Boomer friend and
number one email buddy has once again
filled my inbox to overflowing, I'll share
with you a rockin' and rollin' list of
updated song lyrics to accommodate
aging Baby Boomers.
So Baby Boomers, take a breath,
crack a smile and prove to everyone that


not only are Baby Boomers great in numbers, we're
great in laughing even if it's at ourselves.
Here are the updated versions of some of our
favorite songs, with apologies of course to the original
artists.
Herman's Hermits: Mrs. Brown, You've Got a
Lovely Walker
Ringo Starr: I Get by with a Little Help from
Depends
The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Hip?


'Bobby Darin: Splish Splash, I Was Havin' a Flash
Johnny Nash: I Can't See Clearly Now
Paul Simon: Fifty Ways to'Lose Your Liver
The Commodores: Once, Twice, Three Times to the
Bathroom
Marvin Gaye: Heard It through the Grape Nuts
Procol Harem: A Whiter Shade of Hair
Leo Sayer: You Make Me Feel Like Napping
The Temptations: Papa's Got a Kidney Stone
Abba: Denture Queen
Tony Orlando: Knock Three Times on the Ceiling If
You Hear Me Fall
Helen Reddy: I Am Women, Hear Me Snore
Leslie Gore: It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I
Want To
And my favorite Willie Nelson: On the Commode
Again
Laugh if you will, but don't count us aging Baby
Boomers out. It was George Bernard Shaw who wrote
that youth was such a wonderful thing it was a shame to

And Hale knows a thing
or two about beef
production. She started in
the field at just six years old
when she bottle fed a calf.
By eight, Hale was old
enough to start showing
cattle in livestock shows.
Hale's accomplishments and

her experience runs the

and focuses on judging and
showmanship.
Hale has sat on two

Department of Law

History check. The report
shows that Perkins has been
arrested eight times for a wide
array of charges from petty
shoplifting to possession of
crack cocaine. Many of the
charges were either dismissed
or adjudication was withheld
according to the report.
A check into Alachua
Police Department Records
(APD) reveals two separate
arrests for driving under the
influence (DUI). On both
occasions, officers reported
that Perkins' license was also
suspended. APD reported on
another occasion that a caller
said they had been assaulted
by Perkins although no


charges appeared to have been
filed. Perkins' latest arrest
came on Nov. 2, 2004 when
he was booked on charges of
driving while license
suspended or revoked
(DWLSR).
When asked about the
criminal and civil charges
levied against him, Perkins
would not comment.
Meanwhile, Grapski, one
of the three candidates for the
Group 2 commission seat, has

Molehills.
You know, life has a funny
way of twisting these words
into metaphors that could,
and should, be incorporated
into how we live and treat
each of our days in this world
together.
And, regardless of whether
we choose to take them for
granted in the present or later
be forced to regretfully
reflect on them when it's too
late, inevitably, we come to
realize each day is precious.
Even yesterday, the day
Eric Medlen was laid to rest.
For those who might not
already know, Medlen a
33-year old professional drag
racer was involved in'a
horrific crash at Gainesville
Raceway while testing his
7,000-horsepowered Funny
Car during a test session on
March 19, the Monday-
following the Gatomationals.
Medlen suffered a severe'

Just three days before the
crash, I had the opportunity
to meet Eric; not as a
member of the media, but as
a father spending time with
my 4-year old son, Jonathan.
Like many 4-year olds,
Jonathan is very much into
things such as Thomas the

interests, there's only one

Raiders fourth in host tournament


* Santa Fe brings
six schools to annual.
event
By ADAM BOUKARI
Today Sports Writer
ALACHUA- Last Friday and
Saturday the Santa Fe High
softball field saw plenty of
action, with over a dozen games
taking place for the 30th Annual
Lady Raider Softball
Invitational. While the Raiders
were the host school, Santa Fe
(10-9, 6-3) won just one of four
games in the tournament. Two
of the Raiders' three losses were
by a combined four runs as Santa
Fe finished in fourth place.
"It was a good local
Tournament, telis that we're


familiar with and to me it was
necessary at this time of year to
play a lot of games to prepare us
for what's coming up, which are
the district playoffs," said
longtime Santa Fe head coach
Loretta Shane. "We've had a lot
of adversity with some injuries,
team discipline things going on.
We had to keep regrouping."
The Raiders hosted Buchholz,
Crystal River, Gainesville,
Keystone Heights, North Marion
and Williston in the annual
event.
Santa Fe kicked off the
tournament with a close contest
against Gainesville on Friday.

Santa e top limited field


* Dennis wins
three events to
lead the Raiders
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
The 19th Annual Raider
Invitational held last Saturday
had a different look to it than in
years past.
In previous seasons many
teams would flock to Raider
Field for the annual event.
However, due to a scheduling
conflict this spring that was not
the case this past Saturday.
While last year's meet
included 17 teams, this year's
edition of the Raider
Invitational featured just four
'.4


teams. The good news for Santa
Fe was that it was able to win
its own event as both the boys
and girls teams .finished atop
the limited field.
The main reason for the lack
of participation from several
area schools this year was due
to the fact that the Alachua
County Championships held at
the University of Florida also
took place on Saturday.
"It has never been a conflict
in the past," said Santa Fe head
coach Tommie Turner about the
scheduling of the two local
meets on the same day. "I
thought I was going to get more
schools even with losing five
schools to the county meet."

SSaints sink Vikings twice
Palatka, Fla. The Santa Fe Saints reached the halfway point of
their Mid-Florida Conference schedule with a pair of wins over St.
Johns River CC; 3-1, 9-0 Tuesday afternoon in Palatka.


Game one shaped up to be a pitcher's dual between the Viking's
Roxanne Rawls out of Williston and the Saints' Lindsey Wright out
of Mesquite Texas. Rawls allowed three runs, two of them earned,
in seven innings with nine strikeouts and two walks.
Wright (14-1) earned the win and threw her 12th complete game
while giving up one run, two hits and registering nine strikeouts
with one walk. Wright retired the first eight batters she faced, five
by strikeout while Rawls retired 13 batters in a row between the
second and sixth innings.
SFCC broke a scoreless tie in the top of the seventh when Hayley
O'Mara drew a one-out walk, moved to second on a single by
Jessica Bohn and scored on a double to center field by Maghan
Hicks.
The Saints scored an insurance run they would need when Keisha
Pereira scored Bohn from third with a sacrifice fly and made 3-0
when pinch hitter Jerrica Sanchez reached on an error that allowed
Hicks to score.
Chelsie Garner drove home the Vikings run with a fielder's
choice in the bottom of the seventh.
The Saints jumped out on top in game two with two runs in the
first and three more in the second to give SFCC starter Tiffany
Bratcher some breathing room.
Staci Fernandez and Hicks had RBI in the first while Sherquita
Bostick connected on a triple that brought home two runners and
scored on an error on the throw to the plate to try to get Laura Hall
in the second.
The Saints made it 6-0 in the fourth with Bostick getting the RBI
and scored three more in the top of the sixth to make it 9-0.
The Game was shortened to six innings due to the eight-run
mercy rule with Bratcher (8-0) earning her sixth complete game and
second shutout of the season.
Bostick was 4-for-4 in the game with two runs scored and four
RBI while Hicks, Hall and Jessica Paez had two hits a piece.
SFCC (33-5, 11-1 MFC) remain on top in the conference
standings with 12 MFC games to go. The two-time defending MFC
champs are presently ranked fifth in the state and 16th in the nation.
The Saints will next travel to Ocala today for a doubleheader
against Central Florida CC with the first pitch of game one
scheduled for 2:30 pm.
ESaints rally late for 3-2, 10-inning win over SCC
Gainesville, Fla. The Santa Fe Saints took advantage of sloppy
fielding and wild pitching to score one run in the ninth and two


more in the 10th for a 3-2 win over Mid-Florida Conference rival
Seminole CC Saturday afternoon in Gainesville.
The Raiders (23-14, 6-6 MFC) scored first when leadoff hitter
Tylar Cox doubled off Saints starter Michael Kelly to start the game
and later scored on a wild pitch.
Kelly and Raider' starter Adam Sprague then settled into a
pitcher's dual that saw Sprague give up just one unearned run and
one hit over eight plus innings and Kelly go 6.1 innings, giving up
one run on five hits.
Rene Guerra (2-3) relieved Kelly with the bases loaded and one
out in the seventh and got pinch hitter Shane Ynclan to foul out to
third and Johnny Monell to ground out to second to end the threat.
The sophomore earned the win with 3.2 innings of relief during
which he didn't walk a batter and struck out four.
Trailing 1-0, the Saints sent the game to extra innings with a run
in the bottom of the ninth when Jared Stephenson led off by
reaching on an error, advanced to second on a wild pitch, went to
third on a sacrifice fly and scored on a wild pitch.
The Raiders went ahead 2-1 in the top of the 10th when Ynclan
tripled and scored on a single by Monell. But the Saints scored two
in the bottom of the 10th on just one hit, a bunt single by Andrew
Migetz.
Johnny Kirkland led things off and was promptly hit in the back
with a pitch from Raider relief pitcher John Locklear. Locklear then
walked Saints' center fielder Eugene Garnett and was replaced on
the mound by Michael Jarry.
Jarry took Migetz to a 3-1 count when the Saints second baseman
laid down a bunt between the mound and third base that Jarry
couldn't get to, to load the bases. The Saints tied the score when
Bobby Munoz grounded into a 6-4-3 double play with Kirkland
scoring from third and Garnett advancing to third. Stephenson then
followed with a ground ball at the third baseman that went through
his legs for a game ending error that scored Garnett.
An infield single by Munoz in the fourth and Migetz' bunt single
in the 10th were the only Saints' hits on the day.
SFCC (22-10, 6-5 MFC) will get some time off as they reach their
bye-week in conference play and will return to action next Friday,
March 30 when they travel to Ocala to take on Central Florida CC
in a 2:30 pm game.


DAROZA from page BI
that he has consistently clung to
more than three-quarters of his
life.
Drag racing.
For whatever reason,
Jonathan has loved drag racing
since before he could walk,
making an annual pilgrimage to
the Gatornationals somewhat of
a must.
Since Jonathan can recognize
nearly two dozen professional
drag racers, it's sort of a kick
watching .the faces of these
drivers when this little boy
speaks their names just before
he gets an autograph.
"I've never been too big on
autograph seeking, it's kind of
taboo in my line of work.
But, I do reserve at least one
day of the Gatomationals each
year to play dad, and along with
mom, hustle as many
autographs with Jonathan as
possible.
Two Fridays ago was such a
day.
If you've ever attended a day
at the Gatornationals, you know
protective ear wear is essential.
And Jonathan's trusty pair of
headphones presented a perfect
spot for autographs.
By the time we came to meet
Eric, autograph real estate on
Jonathan's headphones was
growing scarce, prompting Eric
to suggest that he sign
Jonathan's shirt instead.


It was at that moment in time
I suddenly forgot the entire
reason I was there, and
unknowingly turned into a
parent, worried about ruining
the brand new shirt.
"Hey little buddy, how 'bout I
sign your shirt?" Eric inquired.
"Uh, how 'bout we sign right
here," I. offered, pointing to one
of the small empty spaces left
on the headphones.
Little did I know, that would
be one of the last autographs
Eric would ever sign.
Jonathan and I then posed
with Eric as mom snapped the
picture, and we unwittingly
moved on.
It never crossed my mind that
I was taking things for granted.
And,'to be completely honest,
I have no excuse.
If anyone should take each
moment in time for its fullest, it
should be me; a man who has
seen both of his parents die, and
in the past couple of years, has
helplessly watched too many
loved ones pass away.
Yet, here I was worried about
a t-shirt.
I obviously didn't know Eric
well at all, but when someone
you meet suddenly dies less
than a week later, it has an
impact on you.
And, just like when someone
close to us leaves us behind, we
generally gain a little
perspective on just how
precious our days here really

are.
Far too often, however, that
perspective diminishes, and we
somehow start forgetting again
that all of our days here are
numbered, and that this day, or
the one after it, could be our
last.
In the meantime, we tend to
sweat the little things and never
realize until it's too late, of
course that most of the things
we ordinarily fret about are
extremely insignificant in the
grand scheme of the most
important thing of all.

tendency to agonize about the
stuff that doesn't matter the
house isn't clean enough, the
kids are being too loud, what
someone said at work, bills,
or...or, whether an autograph
ruins a measly t-shirt.
I know it's likely that you
didn't know Eric, a young man
with a brilliant smile who died
doing what he absolutely loved
to do.
But, let us all do ourselves a
favor and learn from his death,

coach Jami Lind who is in her
22nd year as head coach of
FCCJ. While coaching the
Stars, she's led her team to the
postseason 18 of 21 seasons
and has won more than 900
junior college games.
Kuitert says she was turned
on to the school from former
Santa Fe softball 'pitching
coach Greg Gillman, who's
familiar with the Stars'
program. According to Kuitert,
she visited the school and went
through a tryout before FCCJ
made its offer.
"I just feel like this is a good
school for me," maintained
Kuitert. "It's nice because you
work up for this moment. You
go on a roller coaster ride. This
is a dream I've accomplished
and I'm proud of myself
because of all the hours of
practice I put in."
Her senior year of softball
has been much different than
her previous three seasons.
This year, instead of getting the
pitch call from the cbach,
Kuitert is being allowed to
select the pitch herself,
requiring her to make
adjustments for each batter that
steps up to the plate.
"We're allowing her to call
the pitches this year and I feel
like she's learning another part
of the game and in a catchers'
development that's a good
thing," leveled Shane. "She sat
back there for three years.

M -,


Right now for her to be able to
step in there and call pitches, it
definitely helps us to have a
catcher who can use her
knowledge back there."
Kuitert says she expects stiff
competition at the collegiate
level, but won't let that deter
her from earning a starting spot
on the team.
"I had people tell me as a
freshman (in high school) that I
wouldn't make varsity. I'm the
type of person that if you tell
me I can't do something that
makes me want to try even
harder," said Kuitert. "I know
at the next level there's'going to
be players who are more
experienced and that's just one
more thing I can use as
motivation. I know I have to
earn my position, it's not going
to be given to me."

PANTHERS:
Continued from page B1
Alex Tipton (0-3), Jake Rhoden,
Coulter Knoblauch, Josh Pardo
and Donnie Michaux, who
combined for nine walks. The
group of pitchers also yielded a
combined 11 hits and did not
strike out one GHS batter.
Defensively, the Panthers also
committed seven errors for the
game.
GHS (14-0) wasted no time in









EN"Ilil


starting the defense of its 2006
tournament title, sending 10
batters to the plate. The big hit
of the first inning was Jack
Miller's three-run home run to
left field. Chad Graziano's RBI
single in the second inning
pushed the lead to 8-0, before
Tyler Cook's run-scoring
double, keyed Gainesville's
four-run third inning.
However, the Hurricanes
weren't finished as they capped
off their offensive barrage by
scoring nine more runs in what
proved to be their final at bat in
the bottom of the fourth inning.
Victor Pino and Paul
Momberger each came off the
bench to rip two-run doubles
during the frame in which GHS
sent another 13 batters to the
plate.
Stephen McNeil (2-0) earned
the win for the 'Canes, working
five shutout innings, while


giving up just one hit, striking
out four without walking a
batter. Ric Smith drilled three
hits, scored three times and
drove in a run for GHS, which
also won the 2003 tournament
title. Cook had a triple and a
double, two RBIs and also
scored three runs in the win for
the 'Canes.
For Newberry, Josh Aggers
got the lone hit of the day. The
Panthers were also retired in
order in every inning but the
third.
"There's not much I can say,"
said Roundtree when asked
about his team getting just one
hit on the afternoon. "It was just
a lack of focus."
On a brighter note, Newberry
defeated Dixie County 6-5 in 10
innings in a Class 3A, Dsitrict-5
contest last Thursday. Tillis
Gibson (2-2) earned the win in
relief, while Knoblauch finished
with three hits, including a home '
run and a double. Pardo also had
three hits, while Tipton had two
hits in the win for Newberry.
But Tuesday afternoon's
performance was not what the
Panthers were hoping for
following last Thursday's
victory.
"You give up seven in the first
[inning] then you battle, you're
down 11-0 and then we gave up
nine in the fourth, we just have
to come ready to go," Roundtree
said. "We would have liked to
have played a little better today,
but it didn't work out, tomorrow
is a new day."
The results of Newberry's
game against Santa Fe at'
Gainesville played Wednesday
afternoon were not available as
of press time. The Panthers will'
host Oak Hall at 7 p.m.
Thursday night, while
Gainesville will face Santa Fe at
4 p.m. also in Newberry.
How the Panthers fare in the
first three games of the eight-
team event determines when
they play on Saturday at
Eastside.
Newberry returns to
Gainesville three days later to
battle Eastside at 4 p.m.

inning off a Raider error. That
one run was all it took for
Gainesville to pull out the 1-0
win.
Just a few hours later, the
Raiders took out their frustration
on Keystone, downing the
Indians 11-3 on six hits and three
errors. Santa Fe used a powerful
eight-run second inning to fuel
the victory while the Indians
recorded six hits but played
sloppy defensively collecting six
errors in the game
On Saturday afternoon, the
Raiders faced a much-improved
Buchholz team. Santa Fe
defeated the Bobcats earlier this
season, but this time around it
was all Buchholz. The Raiders
ended up on the downside of an
11-2 final decision. The Bobcats
picked up nine hits while playing
flawless defensively with no
errors. Meanwhile the Raiders
earned five hits for the game but
also committed just as many
errors. The Raiders used three
pitchers in the loss.
While the Raiders struggled in
the Invitational, Santa Fe's
Tiffany English has provided a
much-needed spark to this team,
driving in two runs against
Keystone and helping out in the
losing effort against Buchholz,
which went on to win the

tournament.
"She's somebody who's been
a real bright spot lately," said
Shane. "Because of injuries and
other reasons, we've had to use
her in tie field and she's pulling
her weight. She's been kind of a
dark horse for us this season and
we're pleased with what she's
doing."
The Raiders' final game of the
tournament came late Saturday
afternoon where ,once again they
met up with the Hurricanes.
Gainesville scored three runs in

the first inning and held Santa Fe
scoreless to provide the final
margin. The Hurricanes drove in
the three runs with two outs in
the first inning.
"There's a definite pitching
difference that I'm noticing
between our 4A competition and
the larger schools," said Shane.
"We're not there yet. I started
four freshmen this weekend.
We're going to do what we can to
try and finish strong and also see
what we can do to develop the
future at the same time."
With only two weeks left until
the district playoffs, Shane says
her team desperately needed this
experience.
"It was good timing to play a
lot of games like this because
we're headed to the last part of
the season," explained Shane.
"The way the formula for the
tournament is set up, you know
you're going to play at least three
games and this year, Buchholz is
a team that has been coming
stronger throughout the season."
Santa Fe defeated Ridgeview
Tuesday night, 6-3 in Class 4A,
District-3 competition. The
Raiders return to action tonight at
home against Baker County with
a start time set for 6:30 p.m.

Regardless, the Raiders boys
team scored 231 points to place
first, while district-foe Bradford
was second with 134 points.
Suwannee was third with 97.4
points while Loften did not
score.
"I was very impressed with
the boys performances," said
Turner, who is in his 20th
season as the Raiders cross
country and track and field
coach. "I know it wasn't a big
high quality meet, but it was a
good tune up."
Linval Joseph continued his
success in the shot put and
discus, by winning both events.
The 6-foot-6, 308-pound senior
placed third in the shot put and
finished second in the discus in
the Class 2A state meet a year
ago. On Saturday, Joseph's
throw of 53-05.5 landed him a
first-place result in the shot put,
while his toss of 157 feet gave
him the discus title as well.
Senior Sidney Dennis won
the triple jump (37-10.75), the
110-meter hurdles (15,.7) and
the 300-meter hurdles (41.07)
to lead the Raiders. Dennis was


also a state-meet qualifier last
spring although he couldn't
participate due to injury.
Other first-place results for
Santa Fe included John Stickles
winning the 3200-meter run
with a time of 12:40.9 and the
Raiders 4x400 relay team
which finished first in a time of
3:47.1
Chris Trebilcock also won the
800-meter run (2:30) and the
1600-meter run at the event in
what Turner said was just a
warm-up for Trebilcock. After
the senior completed both races
at the meet, which was over by
2:30 p.m., he then made his way
to Gainesville to participate in
the 1600-meter and the 3200-
meter runs in the Alachua
County Championships later
that day.
And Trebilcock didn't
disappoint, posting a time of
4:21.90 to place second in the
1600-meters, while turning in a
time of 9:59.97 to finish second
in the 3200-meter run as well.
Trebilcock was second in both
races to standout runner
Michael Anderson of P.K,
Yonge. Anderson posted a time
of 4:21.76 to just edge
Trebilcock in the 1600-meter


run and also crossed the finish
line first in the 3200-meter run
in a time of 9:37.32.
"There is not much else I can
say, the times speak for
themselves," Turner said. "He
(Trebilcock) sets goals for
himself and he works hard at it.
I knew what his plan for the day
was. Chris is capable (of
running four races in two meets
in one day), but there are some
kids that couldn't do that."
Trebilcock also set two.
school records with his times at
the Alachua County'
Championships. He reset his:
own school record time in the:
1660-meter run and just broke:
former Raider Josh Jett's record'
in the 3200-meter run.
By finishing second in both.
races, Trebilcock, who was the
only Raider to participate in the;
county meet, earned a total of
16 points and a seventh-place-
finish for Santa Fe.
While the Santa Fe girls team,
finished first at the Raider
Invitational as well, results;
from the meet were unavailable;
as of press time.
