Watson wants


Carpenter to


control elections.


by 2008

By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA The 2007 City of
Alachua commission election hasn't
even happened yet. But Alachua
City Manager Clovis Watson, Jr. has
already sent a letter to Supervisor of
Elections Pam Carpenter asking her
to revisit the possibility of taking
over control of the City ofAlachua's Watson
elections. See sidebar on page A9.
Watson said the commission voted this year to
keep elections under the city's control because they
believe it is beneficial to keep absentee and
canvassing functions local, something Carpenter said
her office would not be able to accommodate.
In the letter, Watson notes to Carpenter that the
city will be in the new City Hall building by the next
election and will be able to offer resources and space
necessary to facilitate an outside agency handling the
city's elections while keeping the core functions

LOCATION
IS KEY

Valuation of any home takes
into account its size; features,
condition and location Of these
factors, location is the one element
that cannot be altered. A home in
a high demand location will
always represent a greater market
value than a comparable home in a
less desirable location. Buyers
who can afford to pay top dollar
for a select property usually
choose homes priced in the top ten
percent of the market in the finest
locations.
Proximity to goods and
services is important for
homebuyers who maintain an
active social and professional life.
These buyers want convenient
access to shops, businesses and
jobs, medical facilities and cultural
activities. They want to live in
well-maintained, safe
neighborhoods where home prices
will continue to appreciate over
time.
Locations that offer
outstanding recreational
opportunities in exquisite natural
surroundings are another strong
preference' for homebuyers.
Properties in neighborhoods that
offer breathtaking, expansive
views of the most interesting local
scenery are also in high demand.
Second-home investments keep
property values on the ascendant in
many of these areas.

Pirates of Captain Bree! When his
crew jumps ship upon sighting the
pirates in the distance, Captain
Jennings is left with a makeshift
crew of motley prisoners and
Fergus, a sailor who can't swim, to
protect his wealthy passengers, the
Prescots, from the inevitable
attack.
As the lady pirates take over
the defenseless Kayla May, you're
in for swashbuckling musical
comedy with a host of hysterical
characters on deck and a
spectacular Bill Francoeur score.
Along with Captain Bree's hearty
crew of mean and nasty mates (and
a couple of new recruits in training
who keep forgetting to be rough
and tough), you'll find the haughty
Professor Bidwell and the
pretentious Madam Prescot,
constantly' battling for special
treatment and respect (ha!) from
the pirates; Samuel Prescot,
masquerading as a girl to avoid
becoming shark bait; and Julia
Prescot, bursting with desire tojoin
the lady pirates "much to her aunt's
dismay."
After the pirates send Thomas,
the cabin boy, out to sea with a
ransom note demanding gold from
the British in exchange for the


provided; mileage is reimbursed and
lunch is included. Please contact the

Thomas returns with a British fleet,
set on hanging the pirates for their
deeds? Madam Prescot and
Bidwell are.equally set on seeing
Captain Jennings hang for his
defenseless approach to the lady
pirates.
The audience will love the
swashbuckling ending as the two
captains work together to save
their crews from the British.
Bill Francoeur's zesty music
adds the perfect touch of
authenticity to this spirited pirate
play.
From the suspense of "The
Plank" when Professor Bidwell's
life is in the pirates' hands to the
belly laughs of "Shipshape and
Bristol Fashion" when the pirates
order the grumbling prisoners to
swab the decks, the audience will
be humming the catchy sea
shanties, including "Welcome
Aboard!" and "They're a Nasty
Lot."
Show times are April 17
throughApril 21 at 7 p.m. at Santa
Fe High School. Cost for students
is $6 and for adults is $8.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, APRIL 05, 2007 A3


INCUBATOR: H
Continued from page A H

Incubator (NBIA) of the Year-
Technology Category award for
2007.
The Montpellier Business and
Innovation Center in Montpellier,
France announced the winner at
the NBIA International
Conference on Business
Incubation in Seattle on Tuesday.
The SMI is a complex that
provides equipment, business
support, and scientific facilities
for either start-up or very young
companies who are involved in
the molecular life sciences and
have ties to UF.
"We're like a nest for small
start-up companies," Incubator
Manager Patti Breedlove said.
The incubator is located in the
Progress Corporate Park in
Alachua, a centralized location
for many biotechnology
companies with ties to the
university.
"There are really about five


ouses and assists nearly a dozen startups


motives the university has for
running the incubator and being
involved in other biotech
businesses here," Breedlove said,
citing one of those motives to be
raising additional funds for the
university.
"Of course, the most
important motive is to benefit
mankind by helping to bring
beneficial products into the
market," she said.
"We can also provide jobs for
students and spouses of
professors, and our presence can
help faculty recruitment."
Breedlove also said that
universities are required by law to
transfer new technologies to the
private sector, according to the
Bayh-Dole Act.
The SMI currently provides
support for 11 small biotech
companies who seemingly have
nothing but. praise for the
incubator.


"I can't say enough good
things about the incubator,"
Pasteuria Bioscience CEO Kelly
Smith 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."
Banyan Biomarkers CEO
Gary Ascani agreed that the
incubator provides equipment
that many companies couldn't
otherwise afford.
"I've been involved with
other incubators in the past, and
I'd say this one really understands
what it's all about," he said.
The companies currently
located in the incubator are
Axogen Nerve Regeneration;
Banyan Biomarkers, Inc.;
Biomed .Immunotech, Inc.;
Celunol, Corp.; Ecoarray, Inc.;
Integrated Plant Genetics, Inc.;
Nanomedex, Inc.; Nanothera-
peutics, Inc.; Pasteuria
Bioscience, LLC; RFE Pharma,
Inc.; and St. Charles Pharma-
ceuticals.


HAWTHORNE:
Continuedfrom page A] City seeking grant to upgrade water tower


the southern annexation referendum
ordinance which encompassed
approximately 187 acres west of the city
limits along Holden Park Road and heading
south along SE 225th Drive.
The proposed southern annexation was
deemed by the Alachua County Annexation
Team and County Commission to create an
illegal "pocket," or an area bordered on
three sides by land incorporated into the
city limits.
The Urban Services Report for the
annexation of the Southern Referendum
Area U.S. Highway 301 states in
"Character of the area to be annexed" that,
"This area has at least 60 percent of the
residentially developed area in 5 acre or
less lots and meets the requirement that the
area must be developed for urban purposes
in order to be annexed."
There has been outspoken opposition by
residents within the southerly area against
the proposed southern annexation. The city
had been looking for alternative scenarios.
The voluntary annexations substantially fill
in the "pocket" problem. The City
recommended erasing legal challenges by
approving the voluntary annexations and by
not approving the Southern Annexation
Referendum, Ordinance 2007-06-


Annexation A06-3, which would have
appeared in an upcoming election.
'There was a second reading of an
ordinance approving the Eastern
Annexation Referendum Area. The area is
within the Urban Reserve Area of the City,
approximately 359 acres of developed
residential and undeveloped property with
State Road 20 on the north and SE 65th
Lane on the south. "Annexation of the area
will resolve the issue that this area is a
pocket of unincorporated area surrounded
by the City."
SHawthorne resident Tracy Marinello
accused developers of requesting
annexation into the city limits in order to
bypass county and federal restrictions. She
cited 7910 SE 246 Terrace, 24 acres and
home to two eagle families, as an example
of "letting greed run the city."
The property is being developed as
Little Orange Cove Subdivision, 16 lots
with frontage on Little Orange Lake sold
through Campus Realty. Marinello urged
the city to be good stewards of the land, to
be concerned about the nature of growth,
and remarked that catering to developers is
irresponsible.
Developer Eddie J. Higginbotham of
Hawthorne responded that he hadn't cut


down the eagle trees, and that the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Services has been monitoring
the nests.
Mayor Terry Knowles said the
developer is subject to all laws in place.
City Manager Chad Shryock said it is a
mistake to think that the city has looser
rules, and that the property in question had
been approved by the county property
appraiser for subdivision prior to
annexation.
In other news, the resolution to
authorize submission of a Small Cities
Community Development Block Grant
(CDBG) application, to provide needed
physical improvements to benefit low-to-
moderate income residents, was adopted
unanimously. The City is seeking funds to
upgrade the present water tower, which was
used when it was installed 60 years ago, to
a 100,000 gallon tank.
Also, the City will partner with Putnam
Land Conservancy to wiite a grant to
purchase property east of Hawthorne on CR
20 to create an environmental education
center. This area includes the site where
Hawthorne was originally founded.

Ask Your Dentist byDougds. .

IMPORTANCE OF

FLOSSING


Q: Is using a mouth rinse
just as good as flossing?
A: Some studies have
shown that a mouth rinse can be
as effective as flossing in
patients who have mild to
moderate gingivitis. Gingivitis
is the early stage of periodontal,
or gum, disease. The studies did
not address the effectiveness of
mouth rinse versus floss in
preventing tooth decay and in
advanced cases of gum disease.
So the American Dental
Association still recommended
regular flossing, at least once a
day, to help remove plaque
between teeth. The flossing, of
course, should be in addition to
brushing your teeth twice a day


with an ADA-approved-fluoride
toothpaste.
Even the most thorough
brushing, though, will not
remove plaque and food that can
accumulate between the teeth
and just under the gum line. An
interdental cleaner is a suitable
substitute for floss for getting
between the teeth. Of course
eating a balanced diet and
avoiding snacks between meals,
especially sugary snacks, is a
vital part of an oral health
regimen, as are regular visits to
the dentist.
Talk with your dentist about
products and practices that will
keep your smile healthy.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, APRIL 05, 2007 A5'


The


Night of Betrayal


It's begun. Actually, it
began before His human birth,
but tonight we observe the
humbling of our Lord, the
betrayal of our Lord, and then
the arrest and torment of our
Lord.
It's not easy watching
Jesus humble Himself to wash
the feet of his disciples. Isn't it
enough that those hands will be
pierced tomorrow? Must they
scrub the dirt and grime off
those men's feet tonight? Isn't
it enough that this back will be
striped and bleeding
tomorrow? Must it bend so far
to the floor to complete such a
menial task tonight? Why is He
doing this, knowing that no one
there that night will support
Him later during His time of
need, that no one there is
worthy of receiving this menial
service from Him? In fact, one
pair of the feet He is preparing
to wash belongs to the man who
will betray Him to a criminal's
death!
We want to say, "Don't wash
their feet, Jesus! Tell them to
wash Yours! "You're the King;


You're Lord, after all!" That's
what we want to say. Why?
Because we don't think it's
fair? Because we don't want to
see our King on His knees
behaving like a
servant? Because, we
don't want to have to
take actions like these
ourselves? Or, do we
feel uncomfortable,
knowing we, too, are
on the receiving end
of His humble
service?
Today is Maundy d
Thursday. Maundy Deborah
comes from the Latin Co-Lay
"Mandatem" meaning Mclntos
mandate or Church
commandment. This
recognizes the additional
commandment Jesus gave us
this night, so many years ago.
'During the supper that
Passover night, Jesus said, "A
new commandment I give to
you, that you love one another,
even as I have loved you. By
this all will know that you are
My disciples, if you have love
for one another." In other


P
Ph
h


words, you can wash the feet of
anyone, at any time, but if you
don't love them
unconditionally, you might as
well have walked them through
a car wash.
S'When Jesus
washed the feet

He was
demonstrating
S t h a t
Unconditional
love.
S This night,
,f/J Jesus gave us a
angrass sacrament we
teacher still celebrate -
Presbyterian we call it the
Lord's Supper.
Jesus' followers
had come to celebrate the
Passover with Him. They
gathered together in a small
rented room to celebrate the
ancient feast. At this meal,
Jesus broke the bread before
Him and handed it around the
table saying, "Take, eat, this is
My body, broken for you."
Then, He took the wine, and
also handed it around saying,

"This is My blood, shed for
you. For as long as you eat this
bread and drink this cup, you
proclaim My death until I
return."
Are we ready to accept the
challenges of tonight? Are we
willing to take up a servant's
role and to serve others? Can we
get over being too proud to
accept other's service to us in
the name of our Lord?
Will we have the courage to
stand in the face of a world that
tries to 'trivialize service,
sacrifice, and love of one
another and say, "I love you"?
Can we answer the
challenge of this night by


showing ourselves as His true
disciples; by loving others as
we certainly know He loves us?
This is the challenge Jesus
faced so many years before.


This is the challenge we face
now.
Are we up to the challenge
of this night?

HIGH SPRINGS
Residents of High Springs
voiced their opinions on what
the future of James Paul Park in
the downtown area should look
like during an official walking
tour of the park on a steamy late
afternoon last Thursday.,
Several residents joined
High Springs Farmers Market
Manager Sharon .Yeago and
Architect Robert Feild as the
group walked around the park
and the surrounding areas. The
park is situated between City
Hall and the High Springs
Police Department. According
to Yeago, in the past the park
was a central meeting location
and is one of the reasons why
residents are exploring ways to
refurbish the area.
Yeago said residents are
attempting to come up with a
comprehensive plan regarding
the entire park. She said past
planning was focused on
different sections, instead of the
park as a whole.

tour included the addition of
cement block facilities such as
bathrooms along with
electricity and water.
High Springs resident Lys
Burden would like to see a
stage area in the park along
with seating around the bowl of
the stage. Burden added having
a water feature would give the
park an attractive quality for
both residents and out of town
visitors.
Burden said having the park
refurbished is important to the
central area of High Springs.
"It's the heart. It's the heart
to the community," said
Burden.
High Springs City Manager
Jim Drumm said it's still a
question mark if restrooms
would be included as part of the
park's future plans, but did say
having a water feature would be
beneficial for the park's new
look. Drumm said the eventual
plan will be interesting and he
is personally looking forward to
seeing how the park will be best
used.
Yeago said on Tuesday that
it was important for residents to
voice their ideas and concerns
in the presence of an architect
"I think e\er onre felt
empov.,ered." said Yeago
Yeago added that no results
ha\e been determined \et from
the fact gathering toui. Feild is
going to take the needs. \\ants.
and desires of the residents and
come up %v ith a plan that \ ill be
of best use for the park
Feild said James' Paul Park
has great potential. and can
become a central focus of


downtown High Springs. Feild
said it's his goal to come up
with a strategic plan to make
the park central to everything in
the downtown area of High
Springs.
However, Feild said a water
feature could be problematic
because the Suwannee River
Water Management District is
studying stormwater drainage
on the site of the park. He said
the study will determine if
adding a water feature is
feasible.
High Springs City
Commissioner Kirk Eppenstein
is hopeful the park will become
a central plaza for the City of
High Springs. Eppenstein
would like to see the park have
a community center and a place
to house the needs of senior
citizens. Eppenstein added
Shaving the park house the
recreation needs of the
community is an important
element of future revitalization.
He said th6 park has reached
its current state because for a
period of decades it has fallen
out of use. He pointed to the
closing of the old High Springs
High School as the forerunner
for the park not being used as a
primiari gathering place for
residents.
Eppenstein said it's
important that the park once
.aga.in becomes a pl.ice \\here
residents can gather \\ith their
neighbors and ha\e a good
time.
"It's important to ha'e a
sense of communilr here." said
Eppei'ntein.

Herschleb acknowledged
that the school is overcrowded
and operating at 120-percent
capacity, but new buildings and
other planned capital
improvements will help address
that problem.
"Space is of course
important, but I've always
believed it's the quality of the
people you have that is more
important than buildings," he
said.
'Herschleb provided an
overview for approximately $5
million worth of capital
improvements that have been
implemented or are planned for
the high school.
A new classroom building
located between the school
auditorium and baseball field is
planned to provide more space
and also to be utilized for a
biotechnology program to be
implemented at the school this
fall.
Herschleb said Santa Fe has
received a grant to start the
biotech program, which he
thinks will be a great addition to
the school considering the close
proximity of many biotech
businesses located in the
Progress Corporate Park in
Alachua.
The classroom building will
house eight science labs and
will later add 10 general
purpose classrooms.
The new building also
necessitates the paving of new

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, APRIL 05, 2007 Ay


LCTONtepeA1 City wants to maintain all three precincts A method for instant


within the city. Watson said the city's primary
concern is that absentee voters would not be able to
go somewhere within Alachua to pick up and return
ballots and canvassing board members would have
to certify the election in Gainesville.
Another major concern was Carpenter's
proposal that the city have only one voting precinct
instead of the three it has traditionally opened. The
Hal Brady Recreation Center would be the sole
voting precinct for Alachua elections if Carpenter
were to run the election. Currently, the recreation
center, Turkey Creek and the Alachua fire station are
all polling precincts.
In an interview Wednesday, Watson said the city
would go so far as to consider assisting in paying
Carpenter's staff to maintain an office within City
Hall if that would make the difference for Carpenter.
Watson had written to Carpenter last year
following .a contentious 2006 election in which
Commissioner James Lewis narrowly defeated
Lewis Irby. The election sparked a lawsuit which
was later thrown out of court and is now on appeal.
Carpenter said her office would be able to handle the
city's elections but would require absentee voting
and canvassing board processes to be centered in her
Gainesville office.
Watson said he is awaiting Carpenter's response
and is hopeful the City will be able to reach an
agreement that addresses everyone's concerns.
The 2007 election is scheduled for Tuesday,
April 10. The Hal Brady Recreation Center, Turkey
Creek and the Alachua fire station will all be open
from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for voting.
Incumbent Commissioner Bonnie Burgess is
facing off again Charles Grapski and Michael
Perkins.

Pam Carpenter
Alachua County Supervisor of Elections

Gainesville, FL 32601

Dear Madam Supervisor,

I would like to revisit the question of having your office handle our
elections in the future. Our City Commission voted to keep the
election -in our control this year due to their belief that having the
absentee and canvassing functions locally would be of more benefit to
our residents.

We will be in our new building by the time of the next election, and
think that we will be in a position to offer the type of accommodations
that would make it possible for an outside agency to establish their
presence there for the time they would need to assist in the election. As
an aside, these quarters would also be available should you wish to
avail yourself of them during the 2008 primary and general elections.

Our concerns still revolve around the accessibility our citizens will
have to the absentee process and the canvassing of the election. Many
in our comnnini, are aged or infirm, and going a long distance for
these functions would be a burden.

We \ oild \. ish to discuss with you an accommodation Itht would be
ameriable to both parties. If this is possible, it would ;o a long \'.a
toward addressing concerns on many sides of this question.

I -\ould be mo.l .tpprcci.liti e if\ iu '.\'uld cheddle some lime lor tsi

brain damage detection


By DAVID WISENER
Today Reporter
Traumatic brain injury is called the silent
epidemic by many doctors because many cases
either go undiagnosed or are not treated in time
to prevent serious brain damage or death.
Gary Ascani says Banyan Biomarkers is a
company that plans to address that problem by
reducing the time it takes to detect brain
damage.
"It sometimes takes a long time to discover
if a traumatic brain injury has occurred to a
soldier, a police officer, someone. on a soccer
field, or someone falling off a ladder," said
Ascani, the CEO of Banyan.
"There is currently no rapid way of
discovering an injury and a lot of injuries go
undetected."
Ascani said the current method of detecting
traumatic brain injuries is available only in
hospitals and emergency rooms.,
Banyan, located in the University of
Florida's Sid Martin Biotechnology
Development Incubator in the Progress
Corporate Park of Alachua, hopes to make
diagnosis possible sooner.
A device that administers blood tests would
be used for onsite analysis.
"Our founders at the McKnight Brain
Institute at the University of Florida have
discovered proteins that enter the blood wh6n a
traumatic brain injury occurs," Ascani said.
"These protein biomarkers will allow


people to determine whether an injury has
occurred onsite, and they could be of
therapeutic use by observing the levels of the
proteins over time to monitor, a patient's
recovery."
Other therapeutic potential Ascani noted
involves not only diagnosing brain injury but
also treating it. He said that enzymes can
destroy brain proteins after initial trauma, and it
is conceivable that these enzymes could be
blocked using the same types of chemistry
Banyan is developing for detection.
Future biomarkers may also be discovered
to help those with strokes and with problems in
other organs.
Ascani said that the U.S. Department of
Defense is particularly interested in rapid
diagnosis of traumatic brain injuries for the
military. The clinical studies Banyan is
conducting are being funded largely by
Congress.
Banyan is currently working only to
develop the method through which onsite
blood testing occurs and not to produce a
device to actually administer the test.
"We will supply the proper chemistry to
detect brain injuries to a wide variety of
companies," Ascani said.
"We are interested in corporate partners and
in creating market competition."
Ascani said that Banyan should be ready to
seek approval from the Federal Drug
Administration for its biomarkers in 2009.

An endorsement of Bonnie Burgess


With the City ofAlachua'S 2007 commission election knocking
at the door, voters have the power, as they do every year, to
determine the future of their city and their government.
Without tiptoeing around the issfe, Alachua County Today squarely
endorses incumbent Commissioner Bonnie K. Burgess for re-election to
her seat. There may never have been a time in which this editorial board
found so clear, the decision of which candidate to endorse.
The field of candidates in 2007 leaves a lot to be desired. Neither
Charles Grapski nor Michael Perkins is fit to serve on the city's most
important governing board the Alachua City Commission.
The editorial board of Alachua County Today sincerely hoped that
viable, electable and reasonable candidates would toss their hats into the
ring and challenge Mayor Jean Calderwood and Commissioner Burgess.
The truth is that dirty politics has a way of repelling many of the most
qualified candidates and attracting those of most questionable character
and intentions.
Had viable candidates stepped into Alachua's political arena, perhaps
worthwhile debate would have topped headlines in lieu of two candidates'
criminal history. It is indeed a sad commentary on the nature of politics
that the field of candidates was so severely narrow and bleak.
Alachua has previously been poised at a divergent road on election
day. But this city of 7,000 people has never seen two more unqualified
candidates for commission than Grapski and Perkins. This is riot just
rhetoric but reality.
To be a legally qualified commission candidate, one needn't reach very
far. But to be truly worthy of serving on the commission, one should at
least meet some basic criteria. Perhaps the job requirements should read
like a help wanted ad.
The successful candidate should:
Not have an extensive criminal history
Not roam from town to town flagrantly disrupting communities for
personal aggrandizement
Not have ongoing litigation with future employer
Not challenge every authority with whom he or she comes in contact
Have a modicum of decency
Have the ability to work with others


Represent the electorate as a whole in a just and fair manner
Have integrity in personal and professional endeavors
The requirements should not be difficult to meet for most people and
Burgess far exceeds them.
Alachua County Today's endorsement of Burgess doesn't come by
default, but because the commissioner has a proven track record one of
notable distinction.
Burgess was initially elected to the commission several years ago with
the once-influential support of the Alachua Leadership Alliance (ALA).
Today, that organization has morphed into a looser weaving of a group of
citizens. Burgess, meanwhile, has matured in her role as a city leader and
operated outside of the box.
The editorial board of Alachua County Today believes that Burgess has
always been well-intentioned and has placed the interests of the entire
community as the highest priority. Burgess has acted in a manner
consistent with her values and with what she believes to be right and fair.
While serving as commissioner, Burgess often finds herself questioning
the status quo and reaching for the next best scenario rather than settling
for what already is.
During the last year, the City of Alachua has endured some of its most
tumultuous times from a questioned election to one lawsuit on the heels of
another. The operative word is "endured."
The City could have more wisely handled some,of the situations that
have garnered the negative spotlight. It seems at times the City of
Alachua has been in a tit-for-tat game with Grapski. The city, all too
often, has been on a defensive footing a strategically weak position. But
that is the nature of government, as.it is intended to serve even those who
challenge it.
Still, despite a lack of public relations finesse, the city has managed to
land on its feet time after time. That agility is thanks in large part to
community leaders with integrity and the public's trust such as Burgess
and Calderwood.
Alachua County Today fully endorses incumbent Commissioner Bonnie
Burgess for re-election. She understands the needs ofAlachua's citizens
and does listen to the concerns of her neighbors.

According to the FDLE report,
Grapski was arrested in 1988 by
the Broward County Sheriff's
Office (BCSO) for driving
under the influence (DUI) and
resisting the officer. Less than
six months later, Grapski was
arrested by the Daytona Beach
Police Department and charged


with aggravated assault of a
police officer strong arm, a
third degree felony. In that
instance, the case was not
prosecuted and it appears that
Grapski struck a plea deal.
Less than a year after his
second arrest, the FDLE report
indicates Grapski was arrested
in 1990 and charged again for
aggravated assault of a police
officer strong arm, this time
by the BCSO.
Apparently still on
probation from a previous
arrest, Grapski was arrested a
fourth time in 1994 for violation
of probation, DUI and, resisting
arrest without violence by the
Alachua County Sheriff's


Office (ACSO), the FDLE
report states. ACSO arrested
Grapski a second time in 1995
for disorderly conduct.
According to records,
Grapski had no additional
arrests until 2006 for the audio
recording, a case that was
dismissed. The FDLE report is
not clear about final judgments
against Grapski on many of the
arrests. Although Grapski was
arrested and charged several
times beginning in 1998, he
may have reached plea
agreements with prosecutors or
charges may have been
dismissed.
Grapski also has yet to file
any Campaign Treasurer's


Reports. As of Wednesday, city
officials said they still had not
seen any reports from Grapski.
Reports were due by March 14
and March 23 according to the
City of Alachua.
Michael Perkins meanwhile,
has been fighting legal battles
of his own. Just Friday, a judge
ordered Perkins to sign a
settlement agreement with
H&R Block, his previous
employer.
Perkins had been .taken to
federal court by H&R Block
after the company suspected he
was in violation of an
employment contract they had
with him. Specifically, the
company alleged that Perkins


left his job at H&R Block and a
short while later began taking
the tax preparation company's
clients as his own.
It was believed that Perkins
and H&R Block had reached a
settlement according to court
records, but Perkins said he
never authorized his attorney to
negotiate such an agreement on
his behalf. Federal Judge
Stephan Mickle thought
otherwise. Mickle said, "Mr.
Perkins gave Attorney [Carl]
Hayes clear and unequivocal
authority to enter into the
settlement agreement..."
Judge Mickle also said, "Mr.
Perkins' conduct raises serious
questions regarding good faith


dealings." If Perkins does not
sign the agreement by the close
of April 6, Mickle said Perkins
will be considered in breach of
the agreement and a judgment
will be ordered against him.
Perkins also has a criminal
history dating back to 1977.
Charges filed against him by
various police departments
include petty shoplifting to
possession of crack cocaine and
DUI.
The election is scheduled for
April 10. Polls will be open
from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

oNewberry has just
three games left in the
regular season
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
With just three regular-season games left,
the Newberry High School softball team has
its work cut out for them as they look to
return to the regional playoffs for the first
time since 2003.
Currently the Panthers are on a four-game
losing skid and the status of their top pitcher
Kris McDilda is uncertain for the remainder
of the season.
During Newberry's last win a thrilling
8-7 victory over Eastside in 13 innings on
March 20 McDilda battled through was
thought to be a cold. However, after the
sophomore visited a doctor it was revealed
that,she has mononucleosis. Ross said that it
is unknown whether McDilda will pitch
again for the Panthers this spring.
Since then Newberry had dropped its next
four games, including a 12-2, five-inning
decision at Dixie County on Tuesday night.
The Panthers pitched Sam Polsen for one
game and have now moved Katie Holt from
first base to the pitcher's mound as they
look to fill the void while McDilda is
sidelined.

in the 40th Annual
Bradford Invitational on Saturday,
April 2nd.
Sidney Dennis won the 300-meter
hurdles and finished second in the
110-meter hurdles to lead the Raiders
boys team, which placed eighth out of
22 schools.
On the girls side, Starlena Boykins
finished fifth in the shot put as the
Raiders ended the event in 17th place.
At normal strength, Santa Fe head
coach Tommie Turner said his boys
team consists of 27 athletes, while his
girls squad includes 18 members.
However, on Saturday only eight
members of the boys team and just
seven athletes from the girls squad
took part in the meet.
"I was without a full team because
of other previous engagements the
kids had with spring break and the
senior/junior prom," said Turner, who
is in his 20th season as the Raiders
cross country and track and field
coach. "The kids that ran in the meet
did so because they wanted to stay
sharp."
Dennis, a state-meet qualifier last
spring although he couldn't participate
due to injury, posted a time of 41.20 to
finish first in the 300-meter hurdles,

County Tournament unkind to Panthers


U Newberry finishes last
for first time
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
In the past four seasons the Alachua
County Tournament has been an event
where the Newberry High School
baseball team has had some success.
Granted, the Panther have never won
the eight-team event, but they ha\e
always. come away with at least one
victory over the four-game span.
That was until a 9-3 loss to Eastside in
the seventh-place game of the Fifth-


Annual tournament on Saturday, left the
Panthers winless, thus giving them their
worst finish in the short history of .the
event.
The Panthers suffered lopsided defeats
to Gainesville and Santa Fe before being
no-hit by Oak Hall on the third day of the'
tournament. Newberry (5-15).has played
in the fifth-place game of the tournament
in each of the first three years, before
landing a spot in the third-place game last
spring. The Panthers were fourth in last
year's event.
"We played four games and all four
games we saw quality pitching," said
Newberry head coach Bryan Roundtree.


"I was just more.disappointed in the way
our pitchers threw, that was the most
frustrating thing and our lack of defense."
Newberry committed six errors and the
Panthers' .pitchers
issued six walks in the
loss to Eastside.
SWhile there is
nothing the Panthers
.could do about their
forgettable finish in
the tournament, they
Roundtree were able to exact a
S little revenge against
the Rams on Tuesday afternoon.
In a game that was already on the


schedule, Newberry rebounded and
brought an end to its four-game skid 'by
punishing Eastside 14-2 in five innings.
The Panthers erupted for 15 hits
against three Rams' pitchers, while
making just two errors in what was their
first 10-run mercy-rule victory of the.
season.' Alex Tipton collected four hits,
two RBIs and also scored a pair of runs to
lead the way for Newberry.
"It's always good to win especially.
\\hen you're snuggling a little bit."
Roundtree said. "We just didn't play well
(in the tournament) and it was frustrating,
but we played better today,(Tuesday) and

Today Sports Columnist
There's a reason why a
program hasn't done it in 15
years, because it's near
impossible. Repeating as
national champions in any
sport can't be easy, but
basketball where you've got
to scratch and claw your way
through elimination game
after elimination game is
tough.
Nonetheless, that's a
toughness the Florida Gators
men's basketball team
exudes. After winning the
national title a year ago, the
Gators shocked the world
when all of them said they
would return for at least one
more year. Who turns down
the NBA? The cash? The
endorsements?
Answer champions.
We've all heard the talk
about how last year's
championship was different
than this year's. And it has
been much different. Florida
was on the radar last year to
make a run in the
tournament. This season,,
Florida was the radar.
Everyone had their eyes
sighted in on the mighty
Gators.
Just imagine how many
coaches sat in dark film
rooms for hours upon hours
trying to. pick apart this
year's Florida team, fast
forwarding and rewinding
time and time again. It had
to be difficult for those
coaches. How in the world

students have fled
to the beaches,
rivers and springs for spring
break, not this team. The Santa
Fe High School baseball team
has been at work on familiar
territory the baseball diamond.
On Tuesday night, the
Raiders traveled to Baker
County to face the Class 4A,
District-3 Wildcats. A poor
defensive showirl by Santa Fe


coupled with rocky hitting at the
plate doomed the Raiders, 5-1.
"We just didn't play very
good defense tonight, didn't hit
very well or
pitch very
well,"' said
Raider head
coach Ron
Brooks. -
"And, when '
you do those
things wrong Brooks
you're going
to lose the baseball game."
The Wildcats cracked the
scoreboard in the bottom of the
first inning with one run
crossing the plate. Baker
County would double up on
their score4vith another run in


the third. However, it was a
three-run fifth inning that put
the Raiders in a real bind, down
5-0.
"We seem to wait the first
couple of innings and try to see
who's going to make the first
mistake," explained Brooks.
"Instead of taking the ball game
to them, they took it to us. In all
three facets of the game, they
did better than us tonight."
Santa Fe connected on five
hits while recording three errors
and leaving five runners on
base. Meanwhile the host
Wildcats earned seven hits,
committed just two errors and
left four runners on base. Jon

Oh, and that was just the

national championship game
appearance against Nebraska in
,1995 in the "Fiasco" Bowl? Or,
better yet, how many Gators
have a picture hanging in their
houses of the Florida team that
lost to Michigan State in the
men's basketball national
championship in 2000?
- Second place just doesn't sit
well with many people, because
that means someone or some
team was better.
And that's a great point
because this was a .team that
won the national title. From top
to bottom the Gators were
committed to returning and
earning their place in history.
How a team with so many
talented players could stay so
unselfish is mind boggling.
Sure all coaches preach how
important it is to be willing to
give of yourself for the team.
But when you've got so many
stars on one squad, that's not as
easy, to preach.
It's rewarding to be a part of
something that is bigger than
you, but let's not fool
ourselves, there had to be

Gator team. But that's also
what made them stronger and

The Gator coaches will be able
to go into the homes of future
collegiate stars and tell them
that they don't want to pass up
on the opportunity to play for a
school that's won three national
titles in 12 months.
Will Billy Donovan be a part
of that recruiting- this off-
season? Many still want to
know if Donovan is leaving.'
We'll all find out the answer to
that soon.
Will he leave the Gators for
Kentucky? We know that
there's been a purchase of
property in Kentucky, but that
doesn't necessarily mean a
whole lot. Why leave Florida
and go to the Wildcats?
Kentucky has quite a basketball
history, one that Donovan
would have a tough time
recreating. He would be just as
better off staying with the
Gators and continuing to build
.on the history he has made at
Florida. ,
What about the NBA? That's
the tricky question. Everyone
wants to try to win it all and at
any level possible. Some view
a jump to the pros as a
promotion. Well, in some
respects it may be, but in other
ways it can be a disappointing
pain (ask Donovan's. former
coach' Rick Patino). Miami is
available because Pat Riley'
wants out again. The lure of the
NBA is a strong -one, but who
knows if it will be enough to


sway Donovan?
We do know that he and his
wife Christine have a .lot
invested in the Gainesville
community. They're
surrounded by much:.of their
family, they've got a lot
invested in St. Francis Catholic
School arnd this- har-teew t-heir
home for over a decade. This is
where the.'\e raised their
family.i Sometimes noneN and
the prestige of the NBA can't
match those things.
For no\. Gator fans need to
just celebrate, it's not often a
program achie\ es such an honor
as back-to-back champs. Ohio
State fans %\ell just start
cheering for the orange and
blue, and you can be winners,
too.

Continued from page BI
Samuel Warren placing third
(41.90). Rashad Norton of
Buchholz was fourth (45,61)
while Brandon Arredondo and
Brandon White, both from
Newberry, finished fifth (45.80)
and sixth (46.00) respectively.
The Panthers were 15th in the
final team standings.
"This is what I am hoping for
out of him, his goal is to get to
state and I need him to get to
state in both events," said
Turner of Dennis, who is the
defending district champion in
both hurdle races. "This was a
turning point, he is being
aggressive and he is improving
his technique. I'm just pleased
with his performance."
Standout Chris Trebilcock
posted a personal-best time of
1:58.50 to take second place in
the 800-meter run. The senior
finished behind Laurent
Williams of Buchholz (1:57.30)
and ahead of Michael Anderson
of P.K. Yonge (1:59.60).
"He (Trebilcock) wanted to
run a speed race and he just


decided to run the 800 because
this was going to be his only
time running it," said Turner of
Trebilcock, who will attempt to
return to the Class 2A state meet
in the 1600 and 3200 meter
runs. "He is right where he
needs to be. With that kind of
time in the half-mile (800
meters), he is on pace for where
he needs to be in the other two
events (1600 and 3200
meters)."
For Newberry, the Panthers 4
x 800 relay team finished fifth
with a time of 9:35, while
Lavann Warren was seventh in
the pole vault (9-00). Eastside
won the team-title on the boys
side.
One glaring absence for
Santa Fe was Linval Joseph.
The 6-foot-6, 308-pound senior
who placed third in the shot put
and finished second in the
discus in the Class 2A state
meet a year ago, did not
participate in the meet due to
the prom according to Turner.
For the girls, Newberry's
Chonderia Garrison placed
second in the shot put with a
throw of 35-04. Garrison, a


former Raider, was a district
champion and a Class 2A state-
meet qualifier last spring.
Ebony Jackson of Eastside won
the event (35-09), while
Boykins, who is in her first year
participating in track and field,
was fifth (32-06). Eastside also
won the team-title on the girls
side. Newberry placed 15th.
This Friday and Saturday, the
Raiders will wrap up the regular
season by taking part in the
Florida Relays hosted by the
University of Florida. Turner
said that Trebilcock, Joseph,
Justin Odom and the Raiders 4
x 100 and 4 x 200 relay teams
are scheduled to compete at the
event held at James G. Pressly
Stadium at Percy Beard Track.
The following Thursday,
April 12 Santa Fe will head to
St. Augustine for the Class 2A,
District-5 championship meet.
"I think both team are where
we need to be," said Turner.
"We are both pretty much
healthy and we are in good
spirits."

innings for the Raiders before
freshman Collin Mixon finished
the contest.
Mixon also provided the lone
run for Santa Fe in the top of the
sixth inning. Mixon hit a single
to right field and then a fielding
error allowed him to move to
second base. Just a couple
batters later, Lee Hart hit a deep
RBI double to left-center to
score Mixon.
Prior to its contest with Baker
County, Santa Fe just finished
competing in the Alachua
County Baseball Tournament.
The Raiders were 3-1 in the
annual event and earned a third-
place finish after capping off the
tournament with a 7-0 win over
P.K. Yonge.
"I'm very pleased. Last year
we placed fifth, this year third
and that's a sign our program is
getting better," leveled the
second-year Raider coach
Brooks. "We finished behind
GHS and Buchholz and sure we
would have liked to finish first,
but we're pleased with third and
I thought our players did really
well."
As soon as the final out was
recorded in Baker County on
Tuesday night, the Raiders
hopped on to I-10 to travel west

competitive and very good. f

about that."

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, APRIL 05, 2007 B5


PANTHERS:
Continued from page Bl
has had a great attitude about
the whole situation and she has
been a total team player," said
Ross about Holt assuming the
pitching responsibilities for the
Panthers. "She doesn't have the
experience that most pitchers at
this level have. She is a first
baseman, but she is somebody
who is stepping up for the
team."
Against the Bears on
Tuesday,. Holt struggled with
her control, issuing an
unwarranted 14 walks, while
yielding five hits to go along
with no strikeouts.
At the plate, Newberry (4-12)
struggled and mustered just one
hit against Dixie County ace
Caroline McClellan.
The Bears got off to a fast
start and took advantage of six
S walks to score eight runs in the
second inning. Mandy
Cannon's RBI single and Kayla
Clemens' two-run single
highlighted the big inning for
the home team.
After Dixie County pushed
its lead to 9-0 after three
innings of play, the Panthers got
on the scoreboard in the fourth
inning. Gabby Baker reached
on a bunt single for her team's
lone run of the night and later
came around to score on a
Dixie County error. Laporcha
Robinson also added an RBI
groundout in the inning for
Newberry's second' and final
run.
In .the bottom of the fourth
inning, Vanessa Hollis ripped a
three-run double to provide the
eventual final margin.
Newberry failed to score in the
top of the fifth inning in an
attempt to prevent the game
from being shortened due to the
10-run mercy rule.
"I'm not asking her to pitch
60 mph," Ross said. "I'm just
asking her to put the ball across


the plate and have her defense
back her up."
While the Panthers
committed a manageable three
errors in the field, they didn't
supply a lot of offensive
support for Holt either.
"Last night (Tuesday night)
we didn't get started until the
fourth inning," Ross said. "The
offense needs to be that much
better if Katie struggles."
Newberry returns home on
Monday, April 9 to host
Hawthorne in its regular-
season, home-finale at 6 p.m.
The Panthers then head to
Keystone Heights the following
night for a 7 p.m. contest with
the Indians, before closing out
the regular season with a 4:30
p.m. game at Oak Hall on
Friday, April 13.
The Panthers then host the
three-team, Class 3A, District-6
tournament starting on
Tuesday, April 17th. Newberry
will face P.K. Yonge in the
semifinals at 7 p.m. with the
winner clinching a regional-
playoff berth and a chance to
face Williston for the district
title three days later. The
Panthers were 1-2 against the
Blue Wave last spring and have
dropped both regular-season
contests with P.K. Yonge this
year.
"I told them the district
championship and runner-up
trophies are in my office and it
is up to them whether they want
a trophy to stay in my office or
not," said Ross, who is in her
second-year with the Panthers.
"I think they know what is on
the line here with us hosting the
district tournament, we have to
hit the ball.
"We need to use these final
three games as practice for the
one game vs P.K.Yonge in the
district semifinals."

NHWMERRY:
Continuedfrnom page B1
hopefully we can build off that."
The Panthers got goirg right
away in the rematch against
Eastside, by scoring five runs in
their first at bat. Tipton finished
with two singles and an RBI as
Newberry sent 10 batters to the
plate. Coulter Knoblauch, Josh
Pardo and Jake Rhoden each
drove in a run to key the
Panthers' big inning.
It was much of the same thing
in the second inning for the
Panthers as they scored five
more runs to take a commanding
10-0 lead. Josh Aggers delivered
a two-run single, while Tipton
added a run-scoring single to
highlight the frame.
Aggers laced another RBI
single in the top of the third to
give the visitors an 11-0 cushion
before Eastside scored a pair of
runs on two fielder's choice
groundouts in the bottom of the
third.
In the fourth inning, an RBI
double from Pardo and RBI
singles from Casey Colding and
Rhoden iced the win and
provided the eventual final
margin.
Pardo finished with three hits,
four runs and two RBIs, while
Aggers collected two hits and
three RBIs in the win. Rhoden
added two hits and two RBIs
with Knoblauch contributing a
pair of hits and an RBI in the
victory for the Panthers.
But Roundtree said pitching
was the main difference between
the two games against the Rams.
While Tillis Gibson struggled
in the Saturday game versus
Eastside, Aggers (2-4) was
effective against the Rams three
days later. The freshman
allowed one earned run on four
hits in five innings of work,
while walking two and striking
out two.
"We never could make an
adjustment (against Eastside
pitcher Terry Philips) on
Saturday," Roundtree said. "But
today we put the ball in play and
we found the holes."
After playing five games in
eight days, spring 'break
probably\ couldn't ha\e come at
a better time tor Nei herrn
"\\e'ie kind of thin on
pitching and I think armn ise \\e
haj\ se ome kid-s \th some
tender arms aid mental\ I think
we'ree drained." Roundtree said


"I think it will be good for the
kids to get re-energized."
That definitely should help
the Panthers, who carry a 3-5
record in Class 3A, District-5


action, as they face Chiefland
and P.K. Yonge in a pair of
critical upcoming district
contests.
Newberry travels to Chiefland
