Certain names and places have
been omitted from this article
for concerns over safety
HIGH SPRINGS The
latest incident occurred during
an Easter egg hunt last Saturday
morning.
Holly Erskine, the Youth
and Children's Director at the
First United Methodist Church
of High Springs, was
overseeing the church's annual
event when one of her youth
alerted her to the presence of a
woman seeking help.
The woman was homeless.
She told Erskine she was from


the area, leaving an abusive
marriage and wanted a place to
stay that night since the weather
was supposed to be cold.
First United Methodist
Church, which is located
adjacent to US Highway 441,
has lately been no stranger to
those in need of help.
Church., Secretary Karen
Davis estimated that there have
been 10 to 12 people in need
stop by the church in the last
few months, which she said is
as many as the church has seen
in the past year.
On Saturday, Erskine
sought the assistance of others
attending the egg hunt. While

Bonnie K, Burgess walked
away with a victory to clinch
her third term on the City of
Alachua's commission Tuesday
night. As of poll closings at 7
p.m. the results were all but
final. Burgess was ahead with


567 votes compared to
challengers Charles Grapski's
178 and Michael Perkins' 106
votes when the city's three
voting precincts were tallied.
The absentee ballots, however,
had not yet been counted. And
the absentee balloting process,
last year, was one which
spawned at least one lawsuit
spearheaded by Grapski.

NEWBERRY Newberry
City Manager Keith Ashby
addressed the City
Commissioner Monday night
saying that the Florida
Legislature may determine the
fate of the City's budget
depending on what direction
legislators go concerning the
State property tax issue.
Legislators' have options
such as elimination of property
taxes; rollback property taxes
to the 2000-01 rate; rollback to
the rate of 2003-04, or double
the homestead exemption from
$25,000 to $50,000.
Regardless, Ashby is
planning to initiate an analysis


on the possibilities and discuss
the issue with City
Commissioners.
"We are prepared and we
will respond accordingly to
this," said Ashby.
The City Manager wouldn't
speculate on what will
eventually come out of the
property tax issue, but did say
how the City deals with the
forthcoming analysis will be a
key element.
"How we react to that is
important," said Ashby.
Ashby said Newberry
officials have met with the
Florida Legislature and said
that legislators in Tallahassee
understand that an Ad Valorum

LIVE NEAR
YOUR FAVORITE
PLAYGROUND

More Americans than ever
before in history can afford to buy
or build a second home, and guess
where they are investing? They
want to live near their favorite
recreation spots. Real estate sales
in the most popular "adult
playgrounds" have climbed
steadily over the past decade,
despite variable economic
conditions. Second-home
investments are predicted to
remain strong, even if the overall
housing market slows in the future.
Homebuyers select locations
for their recreational homes based
on the leisure activities they most
enjoy. If the buyer owns horses
and loves to ride, he or she will
search for a home with ranchland
acreage and beautiful vistas to
enjoy on horseback. Avid golfers
are most attracted to areas that
offer year-round access to world-'
class signature golf courses. Our
panoramic landscapes provide an
exquisite natural setting for both
horse and golf lovers. Some of
America's most beautiful ranches
and golf clubs can be found here.
Call me ifyou want a detached
single-family residence, a resort
condominium or a choice parcel of
land on which to build your
custom home.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007 A3


Special to Alachua County Today
Parents of children who will be entering
kindergarten in the fall are invited to get a first-hand look
at their child's school at the Kindergarten Round-Up
scheduled for April 18 at 2 p.m.
Elementary schools throughout the district will be
opening their doors on that day to incoming
kindergarteners and their families. Parents will be able to
register their children for school, tour the campus and
meet teachers.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for parents and
children to become more familiar with the school and
the staff," said Superintendent Dan Boyd. "It can help
ease the anxiety that many families of incoming students
feel on the first day of school."
The event is also an opportunity for parents to share
with the school staff any special needs their children
may have.
"It's much better for the school, for the child and for
the family if we can be prepared well in advance," said
Doris Ann Imler, Supervisor of Elementary Curriculum.
"If we know that a child will need special assistance in
the fall, we can get the ball rolling now."
Although parents are not required to register their
children during the Round-Up, they are encouraged to
do so in order to avoid the rush that occurs during the


days immediately before and after the first day of school,
which will be Monday, August 20. Each year thousands
of parents wait until the last minute to register their
children, creating headaches for students, families and
schools.
"Parents who register ahead of time are helping
ensure that their child has a smoother start to the school
year, and that's always a good thing," said Imler.
Parents will need to bring to their child's zoned
school several documents, including a birth certificate,
proof of a physical exam performed within the last year,
immunization records, a Social Security card and two
proofs of residence in the parent's name. Examples of
proof of residence include a lease agreement, a property
tax statement, a homestead exemption form, a utility bill
or other documents.
Even if they can't make the Round-Up, parents can
begin registering their children for kindergarten after
April 19. Under state law, children must be five years old
on or before Sept. 1 to enroll in kindergarten.
Parents who are unsure which school their
kindergartener will attend can visit the district's website
at www.sbac.edu and look for the section on Zoning or
contact the Alachua County Public School's Zoning
Office at 352-955-7700.

Newberry officials: Difficult to estimate how State Property tax will

affect Newberry


implications for the City of
Newberry.
Newberry Mayor John
Glanzer said on Tuesday that
it's difficult to determine at this
time how the State property tax
would affect Newberry because
of the many variables at the
state level.

Ashby is hopeful the
analysis will come up with a
variety of numbers dealing with
possible State property tax
scenarios. He said the analysis
will help prepare Newberry in
dealing with the property tax
issue no matter what direction
legislators take regarding


property taxes. Ashby adds that
Newberry faces a rocky road on
how property taxes will affect
the City's budget.
"We have a difficult task
ahead," said Ashby.

y Planner: Restaurant opening may encourage

development of other downtown buildings


Drumm and City Planner Christian Popoli for
their assistance and support in making the
proposed restaurant a reality.
"They've been fantastic. They've been
wonderful and encouraging," said Bentz.
Bentz said the site of the future restaurant is
one of the more historical sites in High Springs,
and she is hopeful that by having a restaurant in
downtown High Springs, more businesses will
extend their hours.
"It's been one of the landmarks in High
Springs. Hopefully other businesses will stay
open later," said Bentz.


Popoli said the site is one of the anchors in
downtown High Springs. Popoli hopes the
opening of the restaurant will encourage
additional renovations in the area.
"Hopefully it will be a catalyst for other
buildings to be redeveloped," said Popoli.
Bentz is anxious for the project to be
completed saying, "We're very excited about this
venture."
The soon to open steakhouse has been vacant
since the Great Outdoors Cafe closed in 2005.

Waste could be used with ethanol for

petroleum alternative


Norwell, Massachusetts,
conducts much of its research at
the University of Florida's Sid
Martin Biotechnology
Development Incubator in the
Progress Corporate Park of
Alachua.
Glas, who is Senior Vice
President for Research at
BioEnergy, said the company is
currently focused on producing
ethanol, a fuel alternative to
gasoline, from corn and milo
feedstock at two plants in Lake
Providence, Louisiana and
Clearfield County,
Pennsylvania.
"Production has started in
Louisiana and we're still
developing our production
facility in Pennsylvania," Glas
said.
Apart from manufacturing
ethanol solely from corn and
milo, Glas said BioEnergy is
interested in using sugars
generated from the processing
of cellulose from agricultural
waste to produce ethanol and
other useful chemicals.
"Waste from sugarcane, rice
straw, wood, and other
agricultural plants is far more
abundant than the crops


-~~~ --.2. i


themselves, since a lot of the
crops are used for other
agricultural purposes," he said.
"A lot of our research is
aimed towards this end, where
cellulose waste can be used to
produce useful chemicals and
can combine with ethanol as
good alternatives to
petroleum."
According to Glas,
BioEnergy is currently
developing technology only
from the University of Florida
and Doctor Lonnie Ingram,
with which the company has a
five year research agreement,
but it has consultants at other
universities, as well.
Glas said BioEnergy has
been in business for more than
a year, but its research in the
Sid Martin Incubator began in
February. Glas expects this
research to have developed two
more chemicals by next year,
and though BioEnergy expects
to remain in the incubator for at
least two or three more years,
he said the company hopes to
start building a new research
center near Boston by the end
of this year.

BENEFITS OF


FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTES


Q: Isn't one toothpaste
pretty much like any other?
A: Toothpastes certainly
have their similarities. But it is
a well-documented fact that
fluoride toothpastes are better at
reducing cavities in children and
adolescents than are non-
fluoride toothpastes.
A comprehensive review in
2003 of more than five decades
of clinical trials involving
children and adolescents found
that regular brushing with
fluoride toothpastes resulted in
24-percent fewer cavities. The
review found that in the prior 30
years the incidence of children's
cavities had declined
significantly in many


communities, the result of both
fluoridation of community
water supplies and the increased
use of fluoride toothpastes.
The reviewers looked at 74
studies done between 1950 and
2001 in the Americas, Europe

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, APRIL 12, 2007 A5


m


The author and finisher of our faith


We are all familiar with the
phrase, "you must learn to crawl
before you walk," which is true
in both our physical
development and in the
development of our character.
Success does not always come
on the first attempt but can come
through a series of attempts,
which teaches the value of
perseverance. Some resent
having to devote serious effort to
a job, believing that any effort at
all will do and should be
rewarded. In American society
today, it seems that what is
important is simply that some
effort was made, and that to
place a value on the effort, is to
make an unfair judgment.
Some would use the parable
in Saint Matthew, chapter 20, to
support this view. This way of
thinking is the "Social Gospel"
and should be rejected by
Christians. Jesus is not using the
parable as an example for
secular government, i.e.,
Socialism. Jesus was
responding to Peter's question,
"Behold, we have forsaken all,
and followed thee; what shall we
have therefore?" (Mt 19:27)
Clearly, this parable is about
God's plan in calling men who
were idle and putting them to
work. The householder went out


looking for men, offering them
the same daily wage as a Roman
soldier, showing a high ethic in
the way he dealt with the men he
hired. The owner did nothing
wrong by paying the men he
hired late in the day, any
wage he wanted. He
told them that he would
pay (in his words)
"whatever is right;"
what their work
deserved. The fact that
he paid them above j
what they expected tells
us that he was a good


and fair boss.
In fact, the first
workers objected to the
owners' graciousness,
not that he was unjust
in paying the men.
Others may say that
there was nothing
extraordinary about
how he dealt with those
that worked the entire

day. But do not forget that the
householder not only paid his
workers, he went out and found
them, while they were without
work, idle, and apparently, in
need.
In this parable, we see God's
sovereignty and His absolute
graciousness towards those who
are called into His kingdom.


When we look at this parable,
we should also consider a lesson
St. Paul told the Corinthians. (I
Corinthians 13:1) St. Paul
warns each of us to consider the
true meaning of serving God.
None of the
men standing in
the market place
S l were paid to
=. lean against the
wall for the rest
of the
*'^ afternoon, and
none that are
called of God
are called to be
idle in the
building of His
'd Fr. John Kingdom. The
calling of God
ts Anglican is a calling with
Gainesville. responsibility
nof the a n d
n Episcopal accountability.
St. Paul puts


it in simple
terms-a trophy for the one who
wins the race. This race is not a
sprint; it is a marathon, so there
is time to improve our condition
before we reach the finish line.
St. Paul also uses the example of
a fighter who fights to win.
There is no virtue in giving up
during a fight and if you don't
prepare yourself before you


enter the ring, you may not walk
away to fight again. Neither the
runner nor the fighter would
enter the arena without
confidence in their trainer and in
their training.
Christ is the author and
finisher of our Faith; He is the
One that has demonstrated by
His life what it means to run the
race and to fight the fight. Those
who challenged Him found that
He would neither retreat nor
surrender. Those who mocked
Him found that His humility was
the strength of character that
upheld Him. When they nailed
Him to the cross and tempted
Him to call down angels for His
deliverance, they discovered that
He was no ordinary man-He
wore the nails of the cross as a

king wears a crown, boldly and
with sure confidence.
Christ has called us to take
up our cross and follow Him,
enduring the trials of this life, as
He did. Yet, He has not left us
without His grace. If we are to
learn to crawl before walking,
running, or fighting, we must be
willing to trust our Trainer and
submit to the. training. My Word
is Truth, He said-so we must
be trained by submitting to His
Word. "This is My Body which
is given for you, do this in
remembrance of Me," He said.
By this means, we receive the
bread of life, the "medicine of
immortality," as one Church
Father called the sacrament. The
Church has been endowed with
pastors and teachers for the sake


of strengthening the people of
God.
If we neglect the provisions
that Christ has left us for this
race, for this fight, for this day to
labor in His field, how shall we
answer?

HOMELESSNESS:
Continued from page Al


Homelessness in area seems to be on rise


Erskine and her husband, Darin,
took the woman to an area
motel, church member Virginia
Wisener collected some food to
bring to her.
Both Erskine and Wisener
noted that the woman did not fit
typical homeless stereotypes:
she.was neat, clean, and well-
kept.
In the evening, Wisener, her
husband Ron, and Pastor Gary
Eldred took the food to the
woman at her motel room.
They learned she was on her
way to another state because
she said the cost of living was
cheaper there.
When asked if she would
rather stay in this area if she
could find a job, she said she
would.
It's at this point that the
problems began to mount.
Erskine, Ron Wisener, and
Davis each decided to see what
could be done to further help
the woman.
Erskine said she tried to
contact a few places to get
advice, including the St. Francis
House and the Interfaith
Hospitality Network, .both in
Gainesville.
"I got the answering


machine at both places and left
them messages saying I worked
at First UMC in High Springs
and wanted to know what kind
of help was available for a
homeless woman we were
trying to assist, like what kind
of housing there was and if they
knew of any work," Erskine
said.
As of Tuesday night, she
said she still had not been
contacted by either
organization.
Wisener, a retired teacher of
over 30 years at Santa Fe High
School, tried to find places
where the woman could find
long-term shelter and
employment.
"She refused to go to
shelters at places like the
Salvation Army and St. Francis
House because they are set up
like a dormitory with bunk
beds, and she said she'd had
some money stolen from her the
last time she'd stayed at a place
like that," Wisener said.
"She said she would rather
sleep outside in the open than in
a dorm setting. Apparently, it's
not uncommon for people's few
possessions to be stolen at
shelters."


Wisener contacted High
Springs' Catholic Charities for
suggestions.
"They said there's really
very little to no work available
and no affordable housing in the
area for people just trying to
make ends meet," he said.
Wisener tried
unsuccessfully to locate long-
term shelter that would fit the
unique needs of this woman.
He did succeed, however, in
finding the woman some work.
"I know the owner of the
motel she was staying in and
asked her if she could hire the
woman to clean the rooms," he
said.
"The owner was reluctant
because she'd tried to hire
transients over the years and it
didn't work, but she said she'd
talk,to the woman. When we
came by the next day, she was
working, so we hoped maybe
it'd work out."
It took one day, though, for
the woman to change her mind
and decide she would rather
move out of state, after all.
"I think there were some
issues with the owner that really
upset her and led her to decide
there just wasn't any place for

her to work in this area," Davis
said.
"She thanked us for our help
and said she couldn't ask for
anything more except for our
prayers," Virginia Wisener said.
"We offered to buy her a bus
ticket but she said she'd rather
hitchhike because she didn't
like the crowds of people in a
confined space on buses."
Davis began to search for
places where the woman could
receive help at her desired
destination but was frustrated to
find little available.
"I found some really helpful
places but they weren't at any
place she would be comfortable
at," Davis said.
"A lot of places both in our
area and elsewhere seem to help
people with some areas of need
but don't really go all the way
to help them gain control of
their lives."
All those who assisted the
woman agree that the number
of homeless people crossing
their paths is increasing and the
assistance currently available in
Gainesville and the surrounding
area could be better.
"A lot of people don't want
to go to bigger cities because
they don't feel safe," Davis
said.
"Plus, it seems our area just
doesn't have much to offer to
help people as compared to
other places, and the attitude a
lot of people have of ignoring
the problem doesn't make it go
away."
"We're at a loss for what to
do to really help these people in
need." Virginia Wisener said.
".A lot of people ha\e issues,
\whether ph sical or emotional.
that theN need help \\~th. and
the, need a place to stj% -\ here
the\ can feel safe. But then
the,, need lobs and affordable

things. I guess \ie list do the

absentee ballots were tallied into
election totals.
Along with resident and one-
time commission candidate Eileen
McCoy and others, Grapski
challenged the 2006 election
alleging fraud on the part of city
officials. The lawsuit was thrown
out of court and Grapski filed an
appeal in the case several months
ago.
State of Florida Election
Monitors present
The 2007 absentee ballot
counting process was considerably
less intense than in 2006. But
sensitivities where heightened
somewhat by the presence of two
election monitors sent by the State of
Florida Division of Elections.
Burgess' margin of victory at the
polling precincts far exceeded the 34
absentee ballots cast as compared to
112 in 2006. Still, Burgess walked
away with the majority of those
ballots.
After having spent the day in
Alachua roaming from one voting
precinct to the next, the state's two
election monitors also attended the
Canvassing Board meeting after
poll closing.
The monitors observed the
city's election process, jotting down
notes while City ofAlachua officials
carefully conducted the Canvassing
Board meeting. Absentee ballots
were reviewed by the city's
canvassing board made up of
resident Gary Hardacre,
Commissioner Gib Coerper and
City Manager Clovis Watson, Jr.
Four absentee ballots were tossed
out because Alachua County
Supervisor of Elections Pam
Carpenter could not verify the
signatures. In all, just 30 absentee
ballots were accepted.
City staff shuffled the absentee
ballots, which was not done in 2006
and became a point of concern.
Ballots were then processed through
an optical scan machine instead of
reading the votes aloud as had been
done previously. On several
occasions, Watson and Coerper
invited the election monitors to look
over city staff's shoulders
throughout the process.
By the end of the meeting,

results were tallied and announced.
Grapski did not return
telephone calls as of press time and
Perkins said Wednesday he had,
"no comment."
A victorious Burgess said, "I
would have loved to have won with
100-percent of the votes, but that's
just not the way our government
works."
Burgess said the 2007 election
season has been a rollercoaster ride
for her and she's thankful it's over.
"A win is a win and I'll take it.
"I know people have said they
want change and I'm here to say that
Alachua has changed a lot in the last
five to 10 years.
"I'll work hard to win over the
295 people who voted for my.
opponents but I know you can't
please everyone."
Mayor's Seat Uncontested
Alachua Mayor Jean
Calderwood was also up for re-
election this year but challenger Bud
Byrd decided not to complete his
qualifying papers and pulled out of
the race. That move left
Calderwood's seat uncontested and
off the ballot Still, the mayor was
on hand throughout the election
process.
Calderwood agreed with


"I think it's healthy for citizens
to have diverse opinions and goals
for the community.
"It makes our fabric as a
community stronger," Calderwood
said.
The only issue discussed in any
detail during the 2007 election was
the election itself.
"I'm very saddened by the
discourse during this election
season.
"It was reminiscent of previous
elections where false information
was disseminated to the
community," said Calderwood.
With an intact commission,
Calderwood and Burgess both agree
there are many unfinished projects
including affordable housing
initiatives and fire service and storm
water issues.
Low Voter Thrnout
About 400 less voters cast
ballots 'in the 2007 election as
compared to the 2006 election
between Irby and Lewis. Of the
city's 5,200 registered voters, less
than 17-percent participated in the
election process this year.
Burgess said she wished she knew
why more people didn't vote.
"Maybe the low tumout is because
of the weather or that only one seat


Calderwood said she too was
disappointed with voter tumout but
added, "I'm also proud that we did
have so many people come out to
vote because with just one seat on
the ballot elections don't often get
that much attention."
Comparing the 2006 election to
2007, Calderwood said, "Certainly
we refined some of the processes we
used in this year as compared to last
year.
"I maintain that the election last
year was conducted properly.
"Yes there were mistakes made,
but there was no fraud."
And Calderwood said Alachua
would continue pursuing
opportunities to have the Alachua
County Supervisor of Elections take
over the city's election process.
"But we'will not ask someone
else to take over our elections at the
expense ofdisenfranchising some of
our citizens through the process,"
Calderwood added, referring to the
scenario that some aspects of the
process would be handled in
Gainesville such as the absentee
ballots and the canvassing board
meeting as well as a reduction of
polling precincts to one, rather than
three.

ALACHUA TODAY, INC.


Alachua County Today

Policy Statement


Alachua County Today
is dedicated to reporting
news and events relevant
to all citizens of the
Heartland Communities.
Above all, the staff is
dedicated to policies of
fairness and objectivity,
and to avoiding what is
sometimes characterized as
"agenda journalism."
Alachua County Today
is not a Republican


newspaper,


Democratic paper. Nor is it
a liberal or conservative
paper.
Alachua County Today
is a newspaper dedicated
to: (1) balanced reporting
of news and events
relevant to the community,
and (2) reporting on all
significant social,
economic and political
issues and problems that
the staff believes should be


not a of concern to our readers.


A wise choice


of Alachua. For the fourth consecutive year, the
majority of voters have made a wise decision. With
the re-election of Bonnie Burgess to the city's
commission, residents can be assured that the whole
of Alachua is in good hands. Mayor Jean Calderwood ran
uncontested in the race which means she, too, will retain her place
on the commission.
Charles Grapski and Michael Perkins both failed to unseat
Burgess. Even combining their votes wouldn't have been enough
to threaten the three-term commissioner's victory. Burgess walked
away from Tuesday's election with a solid win and the confidence
of her constituents. Most voters recognized that Burgess was the
only candidate of substance,
We applaud the nearly 900 citizens who cast ballots in Tuesday's
election, although not all in favor of Burgess. As stated last week,
the editorial board of Alachua County Today had hoped that more
viable candidates would step forward to challenge Burgess and
Calderwood. And both Grapski and Perkins would likely have had
a better chance of winning against Burgess had they challenged her
on issues.
The simple truth is that Grapski and Perkins spent their time
trying to catch the City of Alachua making mistakes instead.
focusing their campaigns on issues being faced by the City and the
community.
Voters have been fatigued by the hyperbole of alleged election
fraud in recent years. The voting and election process is indeed one
that should be taken seriously and conducted in a fair and honest
manner. Grapski's entire reason for being in Alachua has centered
on his contention that mass election fraud has been taking place.
While mistakes have been made in Alachua's elections, we don't
believe there is some grand conspiracy to sabotage the process.
Mr. Grapski, unless your "save Alachua" campaign exceeds one
dimension, your time here has expired.
Grapski may well have positive contributions to make in
Alachua, but we have yet to see them. To Grapski, Alachua has
become a game of chance, without apparent consequences to him


personally. If he plays enough times, he's bound to have a winner.
He seems to spend his days looking for ways to trip up city
officials. And it should be no surprise that being human, they are
fallible just like everyone else.
People evolve, communities evolve and governments evolve.
Perhaps if Grapski had lived in or visited Alachua a decade ago, he
would already know that this town of 7,000 people is well vested in
the change process, economically, socially and politically. Alachua
is a diverse community with just as a diverse set of representatives
leading it into the future.
It will probably be much to Grapski's chagrin should he realize
that he's nothing special to Alachua. This small city has faced
similar opposition before and will likely face more in the years
ahead. Grapski has done few things well. But he's been superb at
doing what he enjoys most getting attention. Everything else has
been a byproduct of his incessant need to sit center stage.
The 2007 election will not mark the end of Grapski's escapades
in Alachua. We hope that he'll find ways to be more productive,
reasonable and helpful to the general interests of the community.
Serving the citizenry, after all, is the job of government.
And that's a job Alachua's elected officials and leaders must
keep in mind. Despite Grapski's often crass tactics, he's entitled to
fair and equitable treatment, just as any other citizen.
The beauty of our representative republic is that no single
politician holds all of the power. All politicians, however, are
tasked with representing the interests of every citizen.
Alachua's leaders hold the city's future in their hands and have
been entrusted with a great deal of responsibility. Local
government plays a more vital role in the lives of citizens than does
the presidency of the United States. We encourage the City of
Alachua to continue striving to build the citizenry's trust in local
government.
We expect Alachua's politicians and administration to follow
through on promises of making the City's election process more
transparent, access to public records more open and services to the
citizens more efficient.

place," said Ashby.
One of the issues discussed was roads. As
Newberry is determining what will eventually happen
with the future of State Road 26, Commissioners on
both sides discussed lane widening on County Road
337 and paving the shoulders on the roadway of State
Road 26. Newberry Mayor John Glanzer told County
and City Commissioners of his concern of sharp turns
on the roadways in the area.
Ashby said the City of Newberry's staff has made
a strong effort to have a cooperative working
relationship with the County. The City Manager told
County officials that both parties are striving to reach
common ground.
"We're certainly on the right path," said Ashby.
On Tuesday morning Ashby said he couldn't have
been more pleased with how the joint meeting went.
He said he felt both Alachua County and Newberry


officials were cooperating on the issues that were
discussed. Ashby adds that both parties need to
continue to work together for the betterment of both
Newberry and Alachua County.
According to Ashby one key element in achieving
a cooperative relationship with the County was
having continual discussions with Alachua County
Manager Randy Reid. Ashby said his discussions
with Reid brought an open line of communication
between Alachua County and Newberry.
Glanzer thought Monday's meeting went fairly
smoothly, giving Newberry officials the opportunity
to vent on some issues that were of concern to the
City..
Alachua County Commission Chairman Paula
Delaney could not be reached for comment.

say no suspicious activity was involved in
the fire.
Crandall said it was fortunate nobody was
in the home at the time the fire occurred. She
said Tracy Fletcher was at work, while his
wife and the three children were out for the
evening. However, the Fletcher's family pet
died during the fire.
Fire rescue crews from High Springs,
Newberry, and Alachua County arrived at the
scene to attempt to douse the fire, but to no
avail.
Crandall said it's important for a family
to have insurance in the case a fire occurs at
home.
"We can't stress it enough. That's what
helps people get back on their feet," said
Crandall.


In some instances when house fires occur,
'Crandall said it's prevalent that homeowners
don't often have insurance such as renters
insurance.
"We see often that people have no
insurance," said Crandall.
Crandall did say the Fletcher family has
found temporary shelter in the wake of the
fire.
In other news Crandall said residents in
Alachua County should still be reminded that
the bur ban remains in effect even with the
recent spate of rain that has come upon the
area recently. Crandall urges residents to use
caution when burning materials, and that dry
conditions are still at severe levels.

Indians chop Panthers


* Newberry has dropped
five of its last six games
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
Following its last game, which was a
win at Eastside on Tuesday, April 3, the
Newberry High School baseball team
enjoyed the remainder of spring break
week and the time off away from the
baseball diamond.
But the Panthers didn't have such a
good time as they returned to action this
week.

* Joseph finished second in
the shot put, Trebilcock
placed seventh in 1600-
meter run
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
In the last opportunity to participate in
a regular-season meet this spring,
members of the Santa Fe High
School boys and girls track teams
took part in the 63rd Annual Florida
Relays held at the University of Florida's
James G. Pressly Stadium at Percy Beard
Track on April 6 and 7.
Senior Linval Joseph placed second in the
high school division of the shot put with a
throw of 16.78 meters. Isaah Nelson of
Miami Jackson won the event with a toss of
16.96 meters. In the discus, Joseph was 13th
with a throw of 37.65 meters. Cocoa Beach'
Seth Schisler won the event with a toss of
47.86 meters.
Joseph, a 6-foot-6, 308-pound senior
placed third in the shot put and finished

Newberry managed just two hits and
suffered a 13-1 five-inning loss at
Chiefland on Tuesday night.
"We looked like a team that just got off
spring break," said Newberry head coach
Bryan Roundtree. "We had a pretty good
practice yesterday [Monday] but we
looked like a team that hasn't played in
seven days."
The Panthers have now dropped five
of their last six games and fell to 5-16
overall and 3-6 in Class 3, District-5
play.
Pitching was the story against the


Indians as four Panthers pitchers
combined to give up 10 earned runs on
nine hits, while also
walking and or hitting
a batter nine times.
"A lot of times
when you walk
S people, it is mental,"
- Roundtree said. "I
S.. don't know if they get
Roundtree.- nervous or scared or
what. It doesn't take a
lot to throw it across that plate, but we're
having a tough time doing it."


Chiefland scored four runs in the.first
inning as they drew three walks in the
frame, which was highlighted by Joey
Harris' two-run single. The home team
tacked on five more runs in the second
inning, keyed by Eddie Carter's two-run'
single with two outs in the inning.
Newberry scored its lone run in the
fourth inning, which made it a 9-1 game
at the time. Josh Pardo led off the frame
with a walk and moved to third on a
single from Donnie Michaux. Pardo later
scored on a wild pitch to get the Panthers

Santa Fe pounds out win


* Raiders use solid
overall performance
to down Fort White
By ADAM BOUKARI
Today Sports Writer
FORT WHITE It wasn't your
typical baseball game last Tuesday
night. The temperature was about 35
degrees colder than usual for this time
of year and a blistering wind chill and
light rain didn't help things either. But,
don't tell that to the Santa Fe High
School baseball team. The Raiders,
undaunted by the conditions, played
their way to a 10-3 win over the Fort
White Indians.
Santa Fe (11-10) kicked the game off
in text book fashion,
jumping on top of
the host Indians with
a three-run first
inning. Fort White's
S Brian Little walked
three straight Raider
batters to set the
Brooks visitors up for the
runs. Raider
freshman Collin Mixon and teammate
Cory Brooks scored on a Chris
Campbell single to center field before
T.J. Spina crossed the plate on a steal.
Trailing by three runs after just half
an inning of play, Fort White matched
the Santa Fe intensity. After the two
lead off hitters reached base after being
hit by the pitch, Tyler Dorris' single
drove in Cory Capallia. Two batters
later, Matt Hatcher hit a shot to center,
field' that drove in teammates Alex
Gilmer and Dorris to tie the game after
one inning.

no more


By ADAM BOUKARI
Today Sports Columnist
Okay, so everything's kind
of died down in Titletowri,
Florida (the town formerly
known as Gainesville). Billy
Donovan is staying, the
others are leaving and all is
as it should be.
Gators fans seem to really
be relishing this
championship a little more,
because they know that:
things are going to be very
different next year on the
hardwood in Gainesville.
No more Joakim Noah
chest pounding, no more Al
Horford put-back jams, no
more Corey Brewer spin-
move swish runners, no more
Lee Humphrey net breaking,
no more Taureen Green
dancing, no more Chris
Richard monster slams. As
of last Thursday, that all
became a thing of the past --
history.
But, what a great piece of
history it is. What a way to
go out. Everybody talks
about when is the right time
to leave, when is the right:
time to move on. For the:
juniors at Florida, the:
decision was wise. While:
some (okay every Gator fan):
wanted a three-peat with the:
likes of Noah, Horford,
Brewer and Green, they also
accepted and respected their
decisions to take their act to
the NBA.
Of those four, Green was
the only player many-
questioned whether or not he
was ready. Well, another
year and he may better. But,
right now he's leaving as the
starting point guard of back-
to-back national champions.
He's leaving with his fellow

"This team has been through

And I'm not crying about it:

Raider head coach Loretta
Shane.
"We've gota
solid core of
juniors but
we've been

to keep Shane

Trailing 1-0 in the top of the
third, Santa Fe stepped into
action. Junior pitcher Ann
Marie James led the inning off


with a single. An Ashley
Owens bunt moved James, to
second base and in scoring
position. That's when senior
catcher and FCCJ signee Carrie
Kuitert drilled a single to score
James to tie the contest.
In the bottom of the fourth,
Columbia added another pair of
runs to clinch a 3-1 upper hand.
Santa Fe would answer, but
would come up one run shy. In
the top of the sixth Amaris
Alligood reached base on a

The Santa Fe Community College Softball Saints are closing in
on their third consecutive Mid-Florida Conference title as they
begin the final two weeks of the regular season. SFCC (39-5, 15-1'
MFC) have a four game lead over second place FCC-J and won the

clinch the MFC Title outright while 3 is'the magic number for at
least a co-championship. Four of the Saints final eight games are on
the road, including a -doubleheader at Daytona Beach on Tuesday,

jiniors who too vill be going to
the NBA. And, he can to a
certain extent ride their
coattails to a higher draft pick.
- Had he decided to stay for
another year, who knows what
Florida basketball will look like
in one year? They aren't the


favorites to win the national
title next year, you can bet on
that. They could have a great
year and go all the way, no
questioning here. But, they
could also get put out in the
second round of the NCAA
tournament and NBA scouts get
a little more time to look at the
other guards while Green just


sits and waits.
So, ultimately while Green
may, and theoretically should,
be better after another year of
college ball, that may not
outweigh the: season his team
has next year. It was a smart
decision for Green.
What about Donovan? If
there's any returning starter the


Gators didn't want to lose after
this season, it was their head
coach. Donovan, in two
seasons, as gone from a coach
who was hearing whispers
when he had his back turned, to
a man who is one of the hottest
commodities in all of basketball
- college and professional.
That's not easy to do. He's
taken Florida basketball to the
ultimate peak. When people
talk about great basketball
history in this country, they
don't just talk about UCLA,
Indiana and Kentucky. No, now
they talk about Florida. The
Gators have established a
tradition under Donovan era.
Plus, now he has to fight with
other schools taking his
assistants. He's lost assistant
after assistant after assistant to
other Division-I institutions.
And, like Donoyan, they've
gone on to have success. That's
leaving a mark. That's what
putting your stamp on a
program is all about,.
He's no longer "Billy the
Kid." He's got a few more grey
hairs and a few more shelves
full of hardware.
Gator fans are now charged.
with the exciting task of.
watching the Gators who are
leaving this season play in the


NBA. That's going to be fun for
everyone. Will 'Noah ever
change his shot? Will Horford
stop taking 15-foot jumpers and
push his range behind the three-
point arch? Who knows?
That's what's so great about this
Florida Gator team this season.
They didn't just give our area
a buzz and a refreshing
atmosphere. They've got
people excited about basketball
and'next the NBA You can bet
money that the NBA's ratings
will go up tremendously in the
Alachua County area next
season. People are attached to
this team, to these players.
They see them on campus, in
the clubs, in the stores even at-
high school basketball games.
While they're moving on to
the. NBA and whatever else


their future may hold, they have
forever left their mark on the
Gator program right in our
backyard Gainesville...sorry

followed by a two-out homerun
from senior pitcher Jon

Engstrom earned the win for
Santa Fe, pitching through five
innings, recording six strikeouts,
allowing three hits and giving up
two walks. Mixon closed out the
game for the Raiders.
But, the Raiders weren't quite
finished. Santa Fe put another
run across the plate in the fourth
inning after lead-off hitter Kyle'
Hogg doubled to left field and
scored on an infield error. In the

RICK BABSTON/Alachua County Today
Raider senior Jon Engstrom earned the win on Tuesday against
the Indians. Engstrom pitched five innings and allowed three htis.


outs. After a groundout, Santa
Fe's Brooks drilled 2 RBI triple
down the first baseline to bring in
both Vazquez and Hogg. Brooks
would later score on another
Indian error for the final run of
the contest.
"We played a very well all
around game. It's back to the
things we always go over, put the
ball in play, throw strikes and
make the routine play," said a
pleased Ron Brooks. "Yeah
there were three errors, but we
made the plays when there were


runners on base and made sure
we didn't make errors in big
situations."
Over spring break, Santa Fe
also made a trip to Tallahassee
late last week to face Leon High
School and Chiles High School.
The Raiders split, with a win
over Leon, 7-3, but fell to Chiles,
9-4.


SANTA FE:
Continued fiom page B1
Santa Fe had nine hits on the
night while the Tigers just five.
The Raiders committed just one
error and Columbia recorded
three, while the visitors left a
glaring 10 runners on base and
the Tigers left just four.
While Tuesday night's result
wasn't what Santa Fe hoped for,
it certainly can't weigh down
the fact that prior to spring
break, the Raiders clinched the
top seed in the Class 4A,
District-3 tournament to be held
next week.
Santa Fe defeated district
foes Orange Park Ridgeview
and Baker County to earn the
No.1 seed. The Raiders lost to
the Panthers of Ridgeview
earlier this season 8-1, but
would not be outdone this time
around. Santa Fe posted a 6-3
win over Ridgeview behind
seven hits, and just two errors.
James earned the win from the
mound, allowing just one
earned run all night.
Against Baker County, Santa
Fe gave up just one run,
winning 3-1. The Wildcats',
lone score came off a homerun
in the top of the fourth inning.
Santa Fe had nine hits and
committed five errors, but was
still able to pull out the victory.
Alligood pitched the first four


innings to earn the win while
James closed the final three to
earn the save.
Santa Fe tied with Ridgeview
for the top seed in the district,
but the Raiders had more road
wins in the district than the
Panthers and therefore took the
top spot.
"It's (No.1 seed) great
because it gives us home field
advantage," said Shane.
"Because you have the last at
bat, you have that psychological
edge. Our district is very topsy-
turvy. We've lost to Suwannee,
Ridgeview and Bradford.
There's no real clear
domination."
Santa Fe plays host to
Gainesville on Friday nigh at 7
p.m. in the Raiders' final home
game of the season.
The district tournament kicks
off next Monday, but the
Raiders will not play until
Tuesday thanks to a first-round
bye. Santa Fe will play the
winner of the Suwannee-
Middleburg contest on Tuesday
night in Baker County. If the
Raiders win on Tuesday they
will play in the district
championship game next
Thursday night.
"I looked in their eyes last
night and even though we didn't
win there was a fire,", leveled
Shane. "We're where we want
to be. We're going into the


district tournament as the top
seed and now we've got to gelt
to work.
"I just feel like this is a real:
strong team; they're what yofu
want them to be as a teamr
Hopefully we'll play some of
our best ball down the stretch.'"

meet a year ago.
"I liked what Linval did in
the shot put," said Santa Fe
coach Tommie Turner. "He
practiced a lot more for the shot
put, he really didn't spend a lot
of time practicing on the
discus."
As for Trebilcock, he broke
two more school records with
his time in the 1600 and 3200-
meter runs. The'senior, who
qualified for the Class 2A state
meet in the 1600-meter run a
year ago, placed seventh with a
time of 4:20.36. Joseph
Franklin of Tallahassee Godby
was first with a time of 4:14.64.
In the 3220-meter run,
Trebilcock was 10th as he
crossed the finish line in a time
of 9:40.95. Blacksburg's Pete
Dorrell was first with a time of
9:10.
"He had some stiff
competition from kids from out
of state and from upper
classifications," Turner said.
"I'm happy with him, now he is
getting ready for the district
meet."
Other Raiders who
participated in the meet, which
Turner said does not keep team


scores and doesn't include
every event that is in a normal
high school' track meet,
included Justin Odom. The
senior placed 42nd in the 100-
meter dash with a time of
11.365 seconds.
"I would like to see him run
11 [seconds] flat. I wasn't too
disappointed with him," Turner
said. "I'm hoping he can qualify
for the region meet. Bradford
has a sold sprint corps we have
to contend
with."
