No moratorium

Old library to

interim home
ALACHUA A $500,000
grant for expanding the
Alachua branch library
appears to be on the legislative
chopping block in Tallahassee.
Expansion of Alachua's
library will still move forward,
but the lack of grant funding
would mean less furnishings
and amenities inside the
facility according to branch
manager Caryl McKellar.
The Alachua branch library
expansion project was ranked
12th among 27 projects
statewide which are all
competing for about $5
million. Originally, the
Florida Department of State
requested about $10.15 million

Today Writer


HIGH SPRINGS Smiling faces, the smell
of grilled burgers, and the sounds of an old-time
shootout mean only one thing this time of year in
High Springs Pioneer Days.
This past weekend High Springs celebrated
the 31st annual Pioneer Days festival with this
year's theme of "The Waters of High
Springs.. .It's in Our Nature." World renown for
its beautiful springs such as Blue Springs, Ginnie
Springs, and Poe Springs, and along with the
city's close proximity to the Santa Fe and the
Ichetucknee rivers, this year's theme is entirely
befitting the North Central Florida's heritage.
During Pioneer Days, High Springs is
transformed for one weekend into the wild, wild
west. One event celebrating the old west and the
exploits of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday is the
old fashioned shootout that is always popular
among Pioneer Days visitors. Spectators saw


their fair share of gunplay during the highly
celebrated shootout, but in the end the good guys
prevailed in the epic battle between good and

As Florida's population
increases .and its land becomes
more developed. part of its
heritage risks being forgotten.
Like% ise, as the
urbanization of society and
culture intensifies its influence
on the Christian Church, much
of its organic teachings,
initiated and epitomized by
Jesus, are threatened by
ignorance.
Thankfully, there are people
like the Reverend Joseph E;
Fulford who help keep our past
alive and relevant.
Fulford has recently had a
collection of spiritual anecdotes
published that provide
snapshots of his life and
experiences over 80 years. '
"Before Aspirin & Other


Fulford
Things" contains 35 short
stories from Fulford's life,
spent largely throughout
Florida, that illustrate teachings
from the Bible.
Fulford is a retired minister
of over 25 years in the United
Methodist Church and served
eight churches across the state

Officials say an adult
entertainment ordinance is not

after some four years in the
works.
Last September the High
Springs City Commission
passed a fourth moratorium on

in the city for a period of six
months. One of the purposes of
the moratorium was to give
High Springs ample time to

NEWBERRY The Florida
Rock plant in Newberry is
operating at below maximum
allowable noise levels
according to a University of
Florida professor. In a series of
studies performed at six
locations near the plant, the
noise levels were found to be in
compliance with ordinances set
forth by the City of Newberry
and Alachua County.
University of Florida
Professor Gary Siebein
released the results of the
studies Monday. Siebein said
low levels of noise were found
at locations far from the Florida
Rock facility, and that tests
conducted near Florida Rock
resulted in slightly higher noise
levels.

Siebein said the study

However, to alleviate noise

would be added to fans and

acoustical items at the facility.
Siebein added that noise

PIONEER DAYS:
Continued from page Al


Pioneer Days included popular new attractions


evil.
And what would Pioneer
Days be like without the wide
variety of delicious food that
has become a staple of the
event. Multitudes of visitors
enjoyed juicy burgers and some
indulged themselves with a
refreshing ice cream cone.
One of the more unique food
items being served was Cajun
cooking courtesy of Bayou
Billy. The concoctions Bayou
Billy dished up included
Louisiana style platters of
sausage, chicken, and rice. And
if one was not up for a heaping
platter, they could instead opt
for one of Bayou Billy's spicy
sandwiches that undoubtedly
was followed by a strong desire
for refills of cooling water or
soda.
After satisfying those
hunger pangs, it was time for a
little stroll to Heritage Village.
Underneath shady trees visitors
enjoyed the showcase of
pioneering arts that included
spinning, blacksmithing, and
wood-carving.
The Kids Corral was once
again a popular destination for
the little ones who attended
Pioneer Days. Children
enjoyed a wide variety of
activities such as riding a
miniature train, saddling up for
a pony ride, and petting
numerous furry creatures in the
petting zoo. Kids with a
longing for adventure, could
slide down the giant slide or
take a turn on the exciting
bungie trampoline.
Pioneer Days covers a wide
landscape of downtown High
Springs and can be a task to
visit the entire spectrum of
vendors and entertainment.

High Springs Chamber of

the two day event turned out.
She said the weather was nice
for the event and that all facets
of Pioneer Days came off in an
organized fashion.
"I do think everything was

Clarich said new
attractions such as the barn
dance, magicians, and antique
tractors were popular among
festival attendees. She
mentioned that for next year's

displaying antique tractors and

was a trial run for the tractors,
and research will be conducted
on how best to place the

Q. What are some of the
roles of the tongue?
A: The tongue is a complex
organ that plays a variety of
roles in the mouth. For one
thing, the tongue is essential to
speech. People can speak
without teeth, but not without a
tongue. The tongue also, with
assistance from the nose, gives
you your sense of taste. On the
upper surface of the tongue,
especially along the edges and
the back, are your taste buds.
Taste buds, by the way, identify
just four flavors: sweet, sour,
salty and bitter. All other flavors
are combinations of those four.
Your tongue. impacts your
teeth in many ways. The

you can chew. The tongue helps
with fonnation of a bolus, or
ball, of food for swallowing.
The tongue also helps guide
erupting teeth into proper
position and helps keep them
there. Just as your cheeks and
lips apply pressure against your
teeth from the outside, the
tongue applies benign pressure
against your teeth from inside.
It's also useful in flicking at and
dislodging pieces of food that
may be left in your mouth after
eating. Remember, however,
that your tongue is not a
substitute for thorough brushing
and regular flossing.

Amazed at His Wisdom and Gentleness


In these times, things are
much the same as in Jesus' day.
There are those who are against
Christ and disagree with Him.
But, for Christians, what He says
and teaches carries an important
message to our very heart. When
Jesus taught, everyone was
amazed at His wisdom and
gentleness. An example of this is
in the Gospel of Saint Luke,
chapter 11, when Jesus showed
that the accusation of His
working with Beelzebub to cast
out demons was absurd. His
wisdom bewildered those who
accused Him and caused a
woman in the crowd to exclaim,
"Blessed is the womb that bare
thee..." In those days, this was
used to express admiration.
Jesus told everyone there, those
counted as blessed, "But he said,
Yea rather, blessed [are] they
that hear the word of God, and
keep it. "
The character of the true
Christian is shown in this
statement by Christ, a very
simple description which sets the
Christian apart from all others.
"He hears the word of God" -
The true Christian considers the
teaching of the Gospel as God's
way of converting and improving
the souls of men. Instead of
making excuses for staying at


home, he will endure
inconveniences to attend
worship. And when there, he
will "receive the word, not as the
word of man, but, as it is the
truth, the word of God. He will
listen to it as the word of
God speaking to his
own soul and will apply
to himself the truths
which the priest, as
God's ambassador, has '
set before him. In this 1
way, the true Christian
differs from all others- -,
those who may show upI J
regularly for services,
but do not hear the word
of God with the The Re
reverence, the self- Leasur
application; and the All Sai
submission, that all Church
sinners should in the A paris
presence of God. Christi;
Most importantly, Church
he "keeps it." The
godly keep the word of God in
their hearts as a ground of
hope-they do not come only to
hear and receive those things that
match their own preconceived
notions. They long to know how
God is going to reunite sinners to
Himself; and once they find that
God has sent "His only begotten
Son" to die for them, they do not
say, 'How can this be?' They


agree thankfully that God has
arranged this, and they trust in
Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Christians keep the word of
God in their lives, as a rule of
conduct. They will ask, "What

require of.me?
What is the path
that He has
directed me to
follow?" Then
he will not turn
from that path;
he will walk it
with a firm
commitment.
Even if the way
is difficult and
the world calls
him narrow
minded, he will
keep the word
of God, as "a
light," that
points out his


path in general, and as "a
lantern," that directs his every
step. This is part of the character
of Christians, and what makes
them unique among other people.
Together with the character
of the Christian, the Lord
proclaims, his. blessedness-we
are to consider this in the light as
presented in Saint Luke. The
Virgin Mary was the most highly

favored of women, as the angel
told her. She was honored with
bringing into this world her
incarnate God. But the true
Christians' relationship with
Christ is closer than the one
Mary first had with her son. At
first, the relationship Mary had
with Jesus was that of a mother
with her child. He was bone of
her bone, and flesh of her flesh.
And even though this was close,
it cannot be compared with what
exists between Christ and His
'believing people: for "He is
formed in their souls" (Galatians
4:19), "He dwells in their hearts
by faith" (Ephesians 3:17), He in
them is the hope of glory
(Colossians 1:27): and this
privilege is so inseparable from


the Christian character, that, "if
He dwell not in us, we are
reprobates."(2 Corinthians 13:5)
What true believers enjoy,
resembles the union between
Christ and His heavenly Father.
The true Christian has an
intimate communion with Christ.
We see Him in His whole
mediatory role, as the King,
Priest, and Prophet of the Church
catholic.
Those who both hear and
Keep the Word of God-no
matter what the world says of
these people, they are, and shall
be, blessed. The Lord Jesus
Christ pronounces them so, and
He will impart the blessedness
that He has reserved for them.
You will find numerous


temptations to forsake the good
way; but keep it steadfastly unto
the end. In this world you will
have no reason to repent of your
faithfulness; and in the world to
come your blessedness shall be
complete.

Parents open door to




drinking for many teens


Special to Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE The gateway to drinking
often swings open at home.
Instead of keeping their kids locked out of the
liquor cabinet, parents turn out to be the primary
suppliers of alcohol to young adolescents,
according to a new study from the University of
Florida and the University of Minnesota.
Until now, many suspected older friends were
the source of -the booze the middle-school set
imbibes. Although some young teens do discover
beer or whiskey with friends or at parties, most
kids get their first drink from mom and dad at
home, the study states. The findings appear in the
current online issue of the journal Preventive
Medicine.
Researchers surveyed 4,000 12- to 14-year-
olds in Chicago between 2002 and 2005. About
17 percent of 12-year-olds said they had
consumed a full alcoholic drink within the past
year and 33 percent of them reported their
parents gave them their last drink. That didn't
include teens who just had sips of alcohol or the
4 percent of children who took it from home
without their parents' knowledge, said Kelli
Komro, a UF associate professor of
epidemiology and health policy research and the
paper's senior author.
"This study clearly shows it's very important
to educate parents about the consequences of the
early onset of drinking, to try to prevent them
from being a source of alcohol for their children,"
Komro said. "There's a whole long list of
alcohol-related problems that are related to
young people drinking."
Alcohol is the most abused drug in the United
States, and drinking at a young age heightens the
risk of being involved in car crashes, sexual
assault and violence, UF researchers say.
According to a 2007 U.S.
Surgeon General report, adolescents who
drink by the time they are 15 about half of all
teens are more likely to have trouble in school,
suffer from alcohol dependence later in life and
smoke cigarettes and' use other drugs than those
who don't. Even worse, exposure to alcohol at a
young age may damage the developing brain, the
report states.
In most states, parents can legally provide
alcohol to their children -inside the home. Some
parents may do. this because of cultural or
religious events, but Komro said she thinks
parents should be cautious
about the message this sends to teens.


Although parents are the primary source of
alcohol for 12-year-olds, other adults over 21 are
more likely to be a.14-year-old's main supplier.
By the time adolescents reach 14, 33 percent
reported having a drink within the past year, and
the largest percentage of these teens said they got
their last drink from another adult over 21.
Although prevention programs have
significantly curbed smoking and drug use in
adolescents, alcohol use among adolescents has
dipped only slightly, Komro said.
"It's one of the toughest behaviors to change
in our culture because it's so culturally accepted
among adults," Komro said. "For prevention
researchers such as myself, it's one of our
challenges to try to get those rates reduced."
Education programs need to be designed to
target both younger children and their parents,
said Rhonda Jones-Webb, an associate professor
of epidemiology at the University of Minnesota
who was not involved with the study.
"The perception has been that kids get alcohol
from other kids or older adults," said Jones-
Webb, also co-chairwoman of the health
disparities work group at the university. "Perhaps
some parents aren't even aware of the problem."
Jones-Webb said she thinks the study will
help researchers find ways to tackle teen drinking
in part because of the children researchers
studied. As part of a broader prevention research
initiative called Project Northland Chicago, the
researchers surveyed children from 63 schools
who were from multiple ethnic backgrounds,
primarily black and Hispanic, and from mostly
low-income households. Other studies have
focused mainly on one ethnic group, but for
prevention efforts to work they have to be
applicable to multiple races, Jones-Webb said.
Although law enforcement officials can target
stores and other commercial sources of alcohol to
help prevent teens from getting alcohol there,
rooting out the social sources of teen drinking is
a little trickier, Komro said. Aside from designing
educational programs, policy and additional
enforcement efforts may help, too, she said.
"For parents, of course, the important
message is for them to understand that it's risky
to provide alcohol for their children," Komro
said. "It increases the risk of (teen drinking),
which in turn increases a young person's risk for
alcohol-related problems all the way into
adulthood."

Committee was created in 2004 to
deal with issues such as adult
entertainment businesses.
Tom Weller, who is Chairman
of the Public Safety Committee,
said the committee started writing a
draft on the basis of what Alachua
County has done in dealing with
adult entertainment businesses.
Weller said the research was done
in conjunction to writing the draft,
and that the draft is being fine tuned
to High Springs specifically.
Weller said if an adult
entertainment business desires to
come to High Springs, it will have
to comply with the guidelines that
the City will set.
"If such a business wants to
come it will have some rules and
regulations," said Weller.
Weller says the real issue with
the subject of the adult
entertainment ordinance will start
when City Commissioners review
the approved draft.
High Springs City
Commissioner Kirk Eppenstein
said not every business is
compatible to the character of a city
such as High Springs. Eppenstein
said it's a priority for city officials

to fund library remodeling, expansion and construction
projects statewide. The $5 million in the proposed
budget would mean some projects may not get any
funding.
The state library will determine how the funds are
dispersed and whether or notAlachua's branch will get
any funding according to Dani Burrows, the public
relations coordinator of the Alachua County Library
District.
"The library district is still committed to the
expansion project at the Alachua branch.
"We just don't know exactly where all of the
funding will come from and how much we'll be able
to do beyond the construction," said Burrows.
Funding of library projects has been sporadic over
the last 10 years according to the Florida Library
Association's Executive Director Ruth O'Donnell.
"Public library funding from the State has been
static for seven years, even though the need has grown
tremendously as the population has increased.
"Certainly, the Florida Library Association
supports increased state funding for libraries because
of the vital roles the libraries are playing in the
education of our students of all ages and supporting the
public using E-government services as well as being
an economic engine," O'Donnell said.
While the fate of Alachua's branch library is not
entirely known, construction is still expected to take
place this summer. McKellar said construction of the

to protect the character of the
community.
The issue of adult
entertainment businesses has been
of concern to High Springs for the
last two decades. During that time
ordinances related to adult
businesses were brought to the City
Commission, but never enacted.
Eppenstein indicated that City
Commissioners will possibly look
into the issue of adult entertainment
businesses at this week's High
Springs Commission meeting.
High Springs Mayor Tom
DePeter said his objective on the
proposed ordinance is to have one
that is less likely to be challenged in
court. DePeter is hopeful the
ordinance will get based on certain
findings such as stating that places
in High Springs would not be
appropriate to housing a business
with an adult entertainment theme.
High Springs Commissioner
Byran Williams said that if an adult
entertainment business locates to
High Springs that it's important to
have the business placed in the
right area so young children are not
exposed to it. Williams said these
businesses are enticing to young


people and wants children to be
protected from businesses that
have an adult entertainment theme.
"I want to protect our young
people," said Williams.
High Springs City Planner
Christian Popoli said corrections
are being made to language and
content in the draft. Popoli
mentioned the City is trying to
make the draft flexible and at the
same time to protect the
community. He said one of the
purposes ofthe proposed ordinance
is to protect High Springs from
possible litigation in regards to
placing an adult entertainment
business in the area.
When asked what kind of
prohibitions are included in the
draft Popoli said the draft is trying
to stay away from specific
prohibitions, but instead the draft is
concentrating on certain locations
and businesses. He said the focus
is on zoning categories and having
children not exposed to businesses.
Popoli credits the Public Safety
Committee for the time and effort
they have done in helping craft the
proposed draft.

library will take 8-12 months as the facility is
expanded from its current 5,000 square feet to nearly
double at 11,000 square feet.
As construction is underway, possibly as early as
June, the library will be temporarily housed in its
former location on Main Street. The library will
relocate to the current City ofAlachua's Planning and
Community Development office across from CVS
Pharmacy. Meanwhile, all City offices are expected to
make the transition to their new municipal complex
which is nearing completion across from Skinner Park.
Services offered by the library will be scaled back
according to McKellar who said, "We have more staff,
we have more expectations and of course we have
more population.
"It's going to be difficult," said McKellar who
recalled the limited parking when 'the library was
housed in that same building several years ago.
While the library branch currently has eight
computers available for public use, that number is
likely to be cut in half because of space constraints at
the temporary facility. Wireless internet access will be
available at the interim site for anyone wishing to use
the service with a laptop.
Local library officials are urging the public to fight
for more complete library funding by contacting their
elected legislators, who include Senator Steve Oelrich
and Representatives Debbie Boyd and Larry Cretul.

FULFORD:
Continued fiom page Al


Dothan, Bonifay, Fort Walton Beach, Pompano and more all part of the journey


in that time, including churches
in Waldo and Live Oak. He
currently resides in Alachua
with his wife, Jan, and attends
the First United Methodist
Church of High Springs.
"A lot of the stories are
taken from articles I would
write for church newsletters,"
Fulford said.
"During the early years of
my ministry, I realized people
related more to personal stories
than anything else. When I
started writing stories like these
for the newsletters, it went
really well and people
responded."
Fulford was encouraged by
family and friends to make use
of his degree in journalism from
the University of Florida and
put some of his stories in book
format.
"It's something nice to leave
for the kids for posterity," he
said.
"At first I wasn't sure how
younger people would respond
to these stories, whether they'd
be interested in them or not, but
I've been encouraged by the
response I've received from
kids who have told me they


want to hear about the 'olden
times.'"

Native son, war veteran
Fulford was born and raised
in Bonifay, Florida, a middle
child in a family with seven
children.
"Bonifay is a small town in
Holmes County in the
Panhandle, about halfway
between Tallahassee and
Pensacola," Fulford said.
"My family homesteaded
there after-the Civil War. My
grandmother was 15 years old
or so during the War Between
the States, and I can barely
remember some of her stories
from when I was a child. My
granddaddy on my dad's side
was a veteran of the war and
spent most of his time in a
prison camp in Rock Island,
Illinois.
"After the war was over,
there was some sort of deal
where I believe if a person
swore an oath of loyalty to the
Union, you could receive 150
acres in the Panhandle, and
that's what he did."
Fulford grew up, went to
school and worked in his


father's grocery store in
Bonifay until he was 17, when
he dropped out of school and
joined the U.S. Navy to fight in
World War II.
"My parents had to give
their consent for me to join the
armed forces and they were
really against it, but I was
persistent in pestering them
until they gave in," Fulford
said.
"I entered the navy in 1944
towards the tale end of the war,
and I spent my two years largely
out at sea. Most of that time we
were in the Pacific on a type of
armed cargo ship.
"Our ship took part in the
Battle of Okinawa, which was
supposed to be the start of the
invasion of Japan, but of course
the Japanese surrendered
months later after the [atomic]
bombs fell.
"Before the surrender, we
spent time in Korea soon after
the Russians declared war on
the Japanese. They were
amassing their forces in Korea
for an invasion and we went to
kind of counteract that.
"We were on our way to
Guam when the war ended."

Entering the ministry
After Fulford's time in the
armed forces ended, he went to
a business school in Dothan,
Alabama for a year before
.returning home to Bonifay
where he bought a grocery
store.


"We sold that store after a
couple of years because my
wife wasn't too big on Bonifay,
then we moved to Fort Walton
Beach where I managed a meat
department for about seven
years, then we moved to
Pompano Beach and I worked
for a large grocery chain both in
Miami and Fort Lauderdale,"
Fulford said.
It was in Pompano Beach
where Fulford decided to enter
the ministry.
"I'd been involved in church
my whole life," he said.
"We were attending First
United Methodist Church in
Pompano, and I started
volunteering with a prison
ministry with a small prison in
Fort Lauderdale. At first I was
one of about three guys who
volunteered, but after a while
the others stopped coming and
it was just me. Eventually,
I was offered a position on
the staff there, and I took it.
"It was quite an
experience working as a
chaplain in a prison
ministry, plus holding
down my other job at the
grocery store. One Sunday
evening in church, a man

or 15 members or so, and I
thought that would be a
good thing to do.
"That led to me
eventually going into the

you through school."
Fulford majored in
journalism at the University of
Florida, citing a love for
creative writing and writing in
general as motivation for his
choice of degrees. After
graduating from UF, Fulford
spent four years at Asbury
Theological Seminary in
Wilmore, Kentucky, where he
received the education
necessary for his full ordination
in the United Methodist Church.
The youngest of Fulford's
three children, Eddie, has since
followed in his father's
footsteps and is currently the
pastor at First United Methodist
Church of Dunnellon.

Before Aspirin & Other
Things
Fulford's book recounts
many stories from across the
spectrum of his life: some from
his childhood, his time in the
navy, and later in his adult life
with his family and at work.
Most are colored with humor.
All end by pointing to a deeper
meaning in life found in faith.
One story deals with Fulford
trying to hide the shame of his
red hair as a little boy by
coloring it with chimney soot,.
then facing the ramifications
upon his parents' discovery of
the act.
In "Yankee Rubbish," he
tells about the consequences he
and one of his brothers faced as
children when they developed a
secret taste for New York syrup
over that of their grandfather's


homegrown sugar cane syrup.
Another story states that as a
young man walking to pick up
his girlfriend for a date one
night, Fulford accidentally
stepped on a sow feeding her
piglets in the dark and
proceeded to fall in the hog
wallow with his overly starched
white pants.
"The Great Blue Heron"
recounts a quietly beautiful tale
of freeing a Heron from an
alligator trap and helping it
return to health before it was
able to fly again.
Fulford has been pleasantly
surprised by the amount of
interest in his book generated by
his church home in High
Springs, his son's congregation
in Dunnellon, and various other
people he has come across who
have expressed praise for the
book.
"I think I may have enough
material for another book," he
said with a small smile.
Individuals wishing to
purchase "Before Aspirin &
Other Things" can do so online
or by phone.. The book is
available from Amazon Books
at www.amazon.com. It can
also be ordered from the
publisher at
www.iuniverse.com at its online
bookstore. It is additionally
available by phone by calling 1-
800-288-4677, then pressing 3

Shred it and protect



yourself from identity theft


Special to Alachua County Today
Identity theft is reaching
epidemic proportions in
America. The Federal Trade
Commission reported identity
theft as its number one source
of consumer complaints (42-
percent of all complaints) in
2001, with numbers growing
every year.
This costly and hard-to-
fight crime often goes on
without the victim's
knowledge. The effects on a
consumer's credit and daily life
can be devastating. Because of
damaged credit ratings, victims

find it difficult to obtain new
credit cards or loans. Collection
agencies hound them to pay for
charges they did not make.
They are forced to prove, often
without concrete evidence, that
they are not responsible for the
illegal activities committed in



PLAN


their names.
One of the ways to prevent
identity thieves from getting
your personal information and
financial files is to shred the
documents. Crime Stoppers,
Office Depot and Shred-it have
gotten together to host a
Community Shred event on
April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
in front of the Office Depot
store located' at 6861 West
Newberry Road. You can bring
all of the documents you can
carry to the Shred-it mobile
trucks at the event. While you

advantage of special Office

The substitute: caught between flies and rye


recently, I took up what is often
considered the proverbial pariah of a
part-time job substitute teaching.
Substitute teaching gets a bad rap because
most of us remember how we as students used to
treat substitutes. I can remember the sense of joy
that would course through a classroom as the
students entered and found the regular teacher
wasn't there. I can remember the
feeling of freedom we sensed at the
prospect of having time to catch up
on homework, or time to talk to
friends, or, best of all, time to take a
nap.
All that stood between us and Our '
temporary strangle hold on
educational chaos was breaking the
will of whatever poor soul happened
to be subbing that day.
Now, I am the poor soul.
Seriously, substitute teachers who
are good at what they do should be %
admired for the hard work it can be
to take a group of students they've
typically never pet and keeping DAVID
them focused on school work and Today
'assignments for close to an hour,
then repeating the process with five other
different groups of kids on any given day. More
respect, of course, is due all the teachers who do
the same thing every school day of the year.
And as far as a part-time job goes, it's not a
bad gig at all, especially for this recent college
graduate who is waiting to see if the near-future
holds yet more education or full-time


V
'I


employment.
The fact is substitutes are frequently in
demand as the turnover rate is pretty high, and the
pay is pretty fair, averaging out at over $10 an
hour depending on the level of education one has
completed.
Besides, how many more jobs could be
considered as important as assisting in the growth
and education of the future
generations of the world,
regardless of how high the level of
assistance is?
All that is required to become
a substitute is to fill out an
application, available online at the
School Board of Alachua
County's Web Site
(www.sbac.edu), go through the
proper background check then
S attend an orientation.
I encourage any of you
interested in substitute teaching to
pursue doing so.
To provide a glimpse as to
VISENER what it is like to be a substitute
Reporter teacher and a teacher in general, at
least from my extremely
premature vantage, I'd like to attempt to paint a
picture for you using surprisingly and ironically
appropriate imagery from two classic books that
were part of my high school readings: "Lord of
the Flies" by William Golding and "The Catcher
in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger.
In fact,. I think these books are so fitting in
depicting an overarching metaphor of teaching


that I am led to wonder if public education is not
behind a vast conspiracy to pelt unsuspecting
students with loads of irony that they will
comprehend only later in life...actually, as my
father was a teacher for a number of years and I
consequently know quite a few teachers
personally, this is probably true.
I read : "Lord of the Flies" during my
sophomore year of high school. It is a dark book
about a group of adolescent boys who become
stranded on a small tropical island when their
plane is shot down during a war. No adults
survive the crash, and the boys attempt to set up
their own type of government to survive and seek
methods of being rescued. Over time, the group
fractures between two leaders and devolves into
primitivism and brutality that has become a form
of archetype as literary standard-bearer
representing utter chaos.
I can admit moments of feeling like "Lord of
the Flies" main character, Ralph, while substitute
teaching. Ralph eventually must flee for his life
from the other boys who are hunting him down
like an animal and burning the island down
around themselves to root him out of hiding.
What other reason could teachers have for
making students read this book than to show them
what teachers sometimes feel like, or to frighten
them into thinking they, too, could be left
stranded on an island to govern themselves if they
don't behave better?
OK, so I totally stretched the truth when
saying I felt moments of empathy with Ralph.
But who could pass up the opportunity to
compare teaching a group of kids to acting as


ringmaster for a tribe of bloodthirsty and crazed
adolescents?
In a far more serious and truly important way,
"The Catcher in the Rye" represents a truth I think
most teachers feel.
Salinger's seminal work is well-known in
literary circles and was required reading during
my senior year in high school. It tells the story of
a young man, teenager Holden Caulfield. The
book is a first-person narrative that chronicles
Holden's journey as an intelligent but troubled
individual who eventually leaves the private
school he is attending before he is expelled for
academic reasons and runs off to New York
before spending interludes near his home. He
eventually lands in a mental hospital having
suffered from a nervous breakdown of sorts, from
which he narrates the story.
"The Catcher in the Rye" is a sad and
melancholy story which arguably has layers of
meaning that are debated to this day. One thing
that strikes me from the book is the level of
hopelessness Holden often experiences and how
that is prevalent in many teenagers today. Holden
represents many students who are intelligent yet
likewise very troubled. -
I think in some ways "The Catcher in the Rye"
represents why teachers teach: they want to help
the Holden Caulfields of the world, to make a
difference in a child's life who needs help. I
know that my heart cannot help but go out to
students I know from my life who face difficult
situations and whom I consequently want to assist
in any way I can.

HOMELESS:
Continued from page A 1 O

many people have is that there
is not much help available for
homeless people in the area. He
also said he didn't want people
to think that the panhandlers
seen on roadsides represent the
majority of the homeless.
"We have a large variety of
services available to help those
in need," he said.
"We have showers, phone
services, case management,
employment specialists, and
laundry services all on site."
Vann also mentioned


organization owns apartments and homes


housing programs the St.
Francis House is involved in.
"We have what we call the
Homeward Bound Program,
which people must request
because we don't advertise it, in
which we offer a one-way ticket
for anyone who has been
homeless for 30 days or longer
and can verify that they have a
housing opportunity available
to them somewhere else," he
said.
"We own three transitional
houses in which we can house


families with children for up to
a year. They pay rent based on
their level of income, and the
maximum rent is 30-percent of
their income.
"We also operate an
apartment complex for single
men and women who are
homeless but working. The
complex has 34 units and
individuals can stay indefinitely
as long as they can pay rent.
"All of the services
available at the St. Francis
House are also available to


those involved in any of our
housing programs."
Vann stressed that the St.
Francis House provides ample
opportunities for anyone who is
homeless and willing to help
themselves
He also emphasized that
providing education is vital to
assisting the homeless.
"It's about more than jobs,
it's largely about education," he
said.
"We have volunteer tutors,
GED testing, and we're able to
test to gauge an individual's
level of education. We have to
make sure a person's education


level is enough to get work,
because you can't get ajob with
a third grade education if it
requires a twelfth grade
education."
Vann said the average age of
homeless individuals in the
nation is nine, which is a stark
contrast to the image most
people have of the homeless
being the panhandlers seen on
roadsides.
"They [panhandlers] do not
accurately represent the
homeless. The faces of the
homeless are people's children,
brothers, sisters, mothers, and
fathers, not the people standing


on the side of the road," he said.
Vann also had some words
of advice to anyone who is
faced with a situation in which a
homeless person is. seeking
help.
"I always tell everyone
never give anyone money," he
said.
"You call an agency, like the
St. Francis House, and if that
agency can't help, they'll refer
you to an agency that can. We
are interconnected and know
who to refer people to for their
specific needs."

where the studies were conducted, and the study
created a baseline to measure future studies
against.
In November 2005 Newberry City
Commissioners approved expansion of the
Florida Rock facility in Newberry despite heavy
opposition from some citizens concerning
potential air and noise hazards an expanded
facility would potentially present. At that time
officials from Florida Rock assured the


Commission and residents that Florida. Rock
would be good neighbors and provide measures
to combat air pollution and noise.
Glanzer said he is pleased with how Florida
Rock has dealt with the plant expansion.
"Florida Rock stepped up to the plate when
asked to ease concerns of citizens around them,"
said Glanzer.

Gabriel: A strong recreation system is


vital for a communil
recreation system in place that includes activities
such as skating along with other recreational
activities is a vital service that High Springs can
provide.
Gabriel added that area youth must have a
responsibility to the community and that people
should respect facilities that are used by the
general public.
"It's everyone's responsibility that public


facilities are used responsibly," said Gabriel.
If vandalism does occur at the park and if the
City is forced to shut down the park again Gabriel
said the perpetrator would have to look at
themselves in the mirror.
"I want them to realize they are not hurting
anybody but themselves," said Gabriel.

tournament way back in August when we first get the teams
together. But to think that we have a group of guys who have '
fought through all the different challenges and stayed together as a '
team is a wonderful, proud feeling."
The Saints did not have an easy road to their first state
tournament appearance in eight years, having to win four games
down the stretch to get there. The winning streak started last
Friday night when the Saints set down this same Raider club 5-3
and moved to Saturday and a 3-0 win over DBCC in Daytona.
That set the stage for the rain make-up game in Gainesville
yesterday which SFCC won 2-1 in 10 innings to earn a share of the
MFC Title and the playoff game today when the Saints bats
dominated.
Tuesday, the Saints scored in every inning but the second in the -
game that was shortened to seven innings due to the 10-run mercy
rule.
Bobby Uzdavines, and Jonathan Duncan were both' 2-for-4 on
.the day while TJ Sauer was 2-for-2 with two RBI. Jared
Stephenson was 3-for-5 with three runs scored and four RBI while
Bobby Munoz was 4-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI.
The middle of the Saints lineup, hitters 3-5 were a combined 9-
for-14 with eight runs scored and seven RBI.
"The hitters carried us today," said Wiggs. "I thought the biggest
hit of the game came in the fourth inning when Jared Stephenson
came through with a two-out,, two-run single up the middle that
gave us a 6-2 lead." 4
Uzdavines followed Stephenson with a triple to center field that,,
scored Stephenson and scored himself on a single by Munoz to :
push the SFCC lead to 8-2. ,:
Wayne Potts worked the first three innings for the Saints and.;
scattered six hits while giving up two runs with no walks and 1\ o -

came as Brooks crossed the
plate on another Bulldog
fielding error.
After three scoreless innings,
Santa Fe tacked on its last two
runs of the game in the top of
the fifth inning. Raider
shortstop T.J. Spina roped a
triple before stealing home to
make it a 3-0 affair. The
finishing touches came when
Brooks hit a deep sacrifice fly
to center field that scored
teammate Kyle Hogg who
reached base on a walk.
"We did a better job of
putting pressure on Suwannee
with our offense," leveled Ron
Brooks. "We did better at
picking our swings and did a
great job of base running. We
went in with a lot of confidence,
because both the games we had
with them previously, we were
in the games."
The one facet of the game in
which the Raiders especially
shined, was defense. Santa Fe
committed just one error while
Jon Engstrom maintained
control from the mound with an
impressive complete game
performance. Engstrom gave

Jon Engstrom and what he can
do for us," said Ron Brooks.
"Our defense played very well.
That's how are defense was
playing earlier in the year and
it's nice to start seeing that
come back."
Against the Bulldogs, the
Raiders collected six hits and
left just four runners on base.
Meanwhile, Suwannee
mustered just two hits,.
committed a pair of errors and
left seven runners on base. .
Santa Fe is looking for a
return trip to the playoffs but
had to defeat Middleburg late
Wednesday afternoon to
accomplish that. A win would
propel the Raiders into the
district championship game and
earn an automatic postseason
berth for the second straight
season under Brooks.
The results of that game were
not available as of press time,
but will be included in next
week's edition of Alachua
County Today.

WEIGHTLIFTING:
Continued from page B1
should have went down a little
bit, but at the same time he is a
competitor. It is hard to tell a
kid, especially a state champion
not to do something."
Once Joseph made up his
mind about lifting the 445
pounds, Brooks said he was just
trying to pump Joseph up at that
point.
"I was just trying to make
sure he was ready to go," said
Brooks, who arrived at Santa Fe
on' March 26th as the new
Raiders football and
weightlifting coach. "He just
felt confident with it, he
warmed up nice and felt good."
Brooks actually switched
places with Scott Pritchett, who
resigned from Santa Fe, and is
now the Bobcats defensive
coordinator as well as their
weightlifting coach. The
coaching switch actually took
place in the middle of the
weightlifting season.
On Joseph's first lift, Brooks
said that the senior, who is
headed to East Carolina to play
football next year, hit the rack
as he was pushing the weight up
which stopped his momentum.
On the second lift, the coach
said Joseph was three-quarters
of the way up like he was on the
first lift, but just couldn't finish
it. On his third and final lift,
Brooks said Joseph got the
weight all the way up and that it
looked like a good lift.
However, the judges ruled that
Joseph lifted his body off the
bench, negating the lift and
crushing any hope of another
state title.
Joseph was one of six athletes
among the 18-lifter field in the
heavyweight class to scratch on
his three bench press attempts.
Rolondo Brown of Vernon won
the heavyweight state title with
a bench press of 410, a clean
and jerk bf 320 for a total
weight of -725. Panama City
Beach Arnold won the Class 1A
team title, while Palatka took
home the Class 2A state crown.
"There was a lot of
competition in that weight class
and probably the one thing that


happened was Linval went in
too heavy that particular day,"
said Brooks, who added that
Joseph was battling a case of
bronchitis that he picked up the
Sunday before the meet. "He
was very close to getting all of
them (the lifts)."
The day before the state
weightlifting meet, Joseph won
the shot put and the discus
events at the Class 2A, Region
2 Track and Field meet in
Orlando. Brooks said he picked
up Joseph from the track meet
at 11:30 p.m. and then headed
to Daytona Beach making it a
long day for Joseph.
"He felt bad and he was
disappointed. I wanted it so bad
for him, but there was nothing I
could do. I was helpless in that
situation," said Brooks, who
has coached one individual
state champion before and also
guided Buchholz to a co-runner
up finish at the Class 2A state
meet in 2005. "I wish this was
football so I could call another
play to make him feel better."
Joseph was attempting to
become Santa Fe's first back-
to-back state champion since
Jon Huckstep won the 199-
pound Class 4A state title in
1999 and the 199-pound Class
A state title in 2000. He was
also shooting to become the
fourth athlete in school history
to win multiple state
weightlifting titles.
While Joseph clearly had a
disappointing day, a pair of
Newberry Panthers, Benny
Hadley and Tony Perryman.
tried to make the most of their
opportunity of just being at the
Class 1A state meet. The 5-foot-
9, 235-pound Perryman and the
5-foot-8, 175-pound Hadley are
the first Panther male athletes to
qualify for the state competition
since James Highsmith finished
sixth in 129-pound class in the
Class A meet in 2003.
"You have to be proud of the
kids," said Newberry second-
year head football and
weightlifting coach Tommy
Keeler. "Just to get there (the
state meet) is a major
accomplishment."
But for Hadley, he finished
with a total weight of 560


pounds to place 10th out of the
16-lifter field at the 183-pound
class. The junior lifted 3q5
pounds on the bench press, bit
then scratched in his first two
attempts at 250 pounds in the
clean and jerk. But on his third
and final attempt, Hadley clean
and jerked a personal best 255
pounds.
"It was a great environment,
but if you haven't been there
before it can be a little
intimidating," said Keeler, who
has previously coached two
state champions in the late .
1990s. "Next year when Benny
goes back, he'll be more
prepared for next year. This
kind of motivated Benny for
next year."
Unfortunately for Perryman,
a senior, this was his first and
only trip to the state meet. After
posting a bench press of 350
pounds, Perryman scratched on
his three clean and jerk attempts
at 230, 240 and 245 pounds. He
finished last out of the 17 lifters
at the 238-pound class.
"I think Tony was a little
more disappointed because he '2
was a senior," Keeler said.
"This was his last chance."
The coach said Hadley
achieved his minimum goal of
finishing in the top 10, but came
up a little short of trying to
place in the top six spots, which'
would have earned him a'
medal.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2007 B5


BOUKARI fiom page Bl

Mavericks in the NBA Finals
by two games. So, they know
how to bounce back in these
situations. In addition, Miami
gets to play at home the next
couple of games.
Everything is in place for the
Heat to turn this thing around.
But, if the Bulls of the Windy
City have their way, the Heat
will be kicking back on their
couches watching the rest of
the NBA playoffs.

Agassi hits wife
They're like the First Family
of tennis, right? Andre Agassi
and Steffi Graf have been
married for about seven years
now and have been incredibly
supportive of one another. You
may have seen them on
commercials or at, special
sporting events together.
Bottom line, these two portray
a very loving, caring, couple -
that is until recently.
Agassi hit his wife and
mother of their two children
with a racket. Yes, hit. Okay,
okay it wasn't a malicious
attack. As Agassi explains it,
he was holding hands with his
wife and swinging the racket in
the other hand. The racket
somehow swung and hit poor
Steffi in the mouth. It busted
her lip to the point that she had
to have stitches.
We all knew that retiring
from tennis would take its toll
on Andre the great, but who
would have thought he would
take out his frustrations on his
wife? Some reports are
circulating that the couple had
just finished playing tennis and


Steffi beat Andre so bad that he
just had to resort to physical
abuse.
What can we say? Although
he may be retired, Andre can't
get enough of the hard court.

Another draft please
So Sunday offers us another
day of football, a day to sit
around the house and watch the
NFL Draft unfold for a few
hours. It'll be nice considering
we'll be seeing more baseball
these next months than is
humanly healthy.
The NFL Draft is always an
interesting ordeal, since some
teams trade away their picks
and some owners decide to
trade players they've already
drafted for another player or
another draft spot. All the
behind the scenes happenings
of draft day are what makes it
so interesting. Okay, it's also
fun to see where local Gator
players end up. Florida's Jarvis
Moss and Reggie Nelson are,
expected to go high in the draft,
while Chris Leak is still suspect
in addition to others.
We'll see how it all shakes
up, but the big question
remains who will the Oakland
Raiders pick as the overall top
draftee? Some think JaMarcus
Russell and others are thinking
maybe Calvin Johnson. No
matter the choice, the way the
rest of the field shapes up will
determine the big story for draft
day. Sunday's looking like a
great day to have a draft clear
skies with a break from
baseball.

B6 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2007


NEWBERRY:
Continued fiom page B1
shortstop Josh Pardo, before
Thomas Barnes doubled to
right field to bring in Hatcher.
Gilmer moved to third on the
double, but was then able to
score on Newberry's second
error of the frame- a bad throw
by Tipton- for the 4-0 lead.
The fourth-seeded Panthers
went quietly in their first at bat.
But in the second inning,
Aggers appeared ready to settle
down and silence the Indians.
Aggers, a freshman, retired the
first two hitters of the frame,
but ran into trouble as he
walked Hatcher, before giving
up two straight singles to Tyler
Dorris and Gilmer. The single
by Gilmer scored Hatcher to
give Fort White a 5-0 edge and
also brought an end to Aggers'
outing. But Barnes kept the
Indians' two-out rally going as
he greeted Newberry reliever
Tillis Gibson with a single that
brought in Dorris and Gilmer
for the 7-0 Indians' lead.
"Josh was not as sharp as he.
has been, everything was up.
But he'll learn from this
experience," Roundtree said. "I
think when they scored four
runs in the first inning, it
deflated us. We just couldn't
get the hit to propel us a little
bit."


However, Newberry did have
a chance to make a game of it
in the bottom of the second
inning. Casey Colding led off
the frame with a single against
Fort White pitcher Bryan Little.
Jake Rhoden then worked a
walk before Aggers dropped
down a sacrifice bunt to move
both runners into scoring
position. Gibson then walked to
load the bases, but Derek Davis
and Ryan Gilhooly each struck
out to end the Panthers' biggest
threat of the day.
In the fourth inning, Brian
Stalnaker's RBI bloop-single to
left field and George Demko's
two-run single capped the
scoring for the Indians and
provided the eventual final
margin.
The Panthers tried to avoid
the 10-run mercy rule defeat in
the bottom of the fifth inning,
but stranded runners on first
and third base as their season
came to an end.
Aggers (2-6) suffered the
loss, giving up five earned runs
on five hits, while walking
three and striking out one batter
in just 1 2/3 innings of work.
Coulter Knoblauch and
Colding each had a single in the
loss for Newberry. '
Little picked up the win,.
scattering four hits, while
walking four and striking out






... !t t, -
; '-* t


five batters in five shutout-
innings of work. Barnes ended
with two hits, three RBIs and
one run scored in the win for
Fort White. Hatcher and
Demko each chipped in with
two RBIs on the day.
Monday's game not only
brought the 2007 Newberry
baseball season to a close, but
also the high school careers of
seniors Donnie Michaux, Ole
Helgerude, Blaine Roberson,
Knoblauch, Gibson, Davis and
Colding.
Michaux, Helgerude and
Roberson missed Newberry's
final game as the three players
broke school policy according
to Roundtree.
"Obviously it didn't turn out
the way we wanted it to work
out," Roundtree said. "I told
them I appreciated their effort
and what they gave into the
program."
While Roundtree says
goodbye to seven players, he
has a positive feeling for his
program in the upcoming
seasons.
"Program wise we're pretty
young," said the coach. "But I
like the bunch coming back I
really do."

TRACK:
Continued fiom page Bl
on the boys side, Groveland
South Lake won the meet with
69 points, while Crystal River
was second with 66 points.
Santa Fe and St. Augustine
were deadlocked in third place
with 50 points out of the 24-
team field.
"We got 40 points out of
them [Trebilcock and Joseph],"
said Turner, who is in his 20th
season as the Raiders cross
country and track and field
coach. "Those were the 40
points I thought I was probably
going to get out of them."
Trebilcock, a Class 2A state-
meet qualifier in the 1600-
meter run last year, cruised to
easy wins in the 1600 and 3200
meter runs at the district meet
and again at last week's
regional meet. The senior
coasted with a time of 4:28.39
in the 1600 meters, while
crossing the finish line in the
3200-meter run in a time of
9:50.40. Both of those times
were seven seconds ahead each
of the second place finishers in
the respective races.
"There weren't any challenge
for him in any one'ofthe races,"
Turner said. "But he will-have
some challengers in the state
meet."
The 6-foot-6, 334-pound
Joseph earned 10 points in the
shot put with a winning throw
of 56-02.75 and another 10
points in the discus for his
winning throw of 154-01.
Joseph, who placed third in the
shot put and finished second in
the discus in the Class 2A state
meet a year ago, won the
regional title in the shot put last
Thursday by just under four feet
and won the discus title by a
margin of eight feet.
Rounding out Santa Fe's
state-meet qualifiers is Dennis,
who was a state-meet qualifier
last spring although he couldn't
participate due to injury. Dennis
earned the Raiders six points
with a third-place finish in the
300-meter hurdles (40.82).
However, Turner said he was
hoping to get 18-20 points from
Dennis during the meet. And
the veteran coach might have


gotten those desired points if
Dennis did not hit the first
hurdle and fall during one of the
preliminary races for'the 110-
meter hurdles. Dennis did not
qualify for the finals in that
event.
Misfortune also struck Santa
Fe's 4x400 relay team, which
dropped the baton on the third
leg and did not finish the race.
"The effort was there, that
just happens sometimes," said
Turner, whose 4x400 relay team
was seeded second based on
qualifying time coming into the
meet. "I was just disappointed
for them because I knew they
really wanted to go to state."
Santa Fe's other relay team,
the 4x800 squad placed 12th
(9:15.83) and did not qualify
for state. Also just missing out
on an invite to the Class 2A
state meet was Justin Odomi.
Although he did not qualify for
the finals in the 100-meter dash,.
Odom did earn the Raiders four
points with his fifth-place finish
in the 200-meter dash (22.37).
However, despite earning
points for fifth place, Odom
missed out on punching his
ticket for the state meet by .06
seconds.
"He missed qualifying, he got
beat at the finish line, it was
close at the finish line for fourth
place," Turner said. "I think if
he ran a little harder around the
turn he could have finished
fourth. He was very
disappointed, but still getting
that far was good for him."
'With the Class 2A state meet
up next, the Raiders should be
in the mix for a possible state
crown, but Turner is not sure if
50 points (which is the
maximum total Trebilcock,
Joseph and Dennis could earn)
will be enough. The top eight
individual finishers in each
event receive a medal.
"It is going to be fun, I just
want to see if they can reach
that goal, it is a once in a
lifetime opportunity to be in the
state meet," Turner said. "Some
people get there more than once
but once you get there, it is a
lifetime achievement and it is
something you never forget."
For the girls, the Raiders


scored just three points and
finished 27th out of 29 schools.
Lake Highland Prep won the
meet with 101 points.
No Raider female athlete
qualified for the state meet. In
the shot put, Starlana Boykins
was 11th (29-08.50) and
Shanice Jackson was 13th (27-
09.75). In the 100-meter dash,
Ashley Williams was seventh
(17.52), while Jackson did not
qualify for the finals of the 200-
meters.
Corinne Larsen placed 15th
in the 800-meter run with a time
of 2:53.88, but did not finish the
1600-meter run. The Raiders
placed eighth (52.56) in the
4x100 relay race, while the
4x400 relay team was 10th in a
time of 4:24.38. Both times
were personal bests for each
team.
"I. like the way we finished,
we're just coming along. This
was a good year of experience
for us," Turner said. "We'll
have some more experience
next year and I'm very excited
for next year."
While the season has ended
for the Santa Fe girls track and
field team, one of Turner's
former athletes qualified for the
state meet for the second
straight year.
Chonderia Garrison, a former
Raider, earned 13 points for
Newberry, which finished 17th
in the team standings. The.
sophomore, in her first year
throwing the discus, finished
second with a throw of 106-07.
Garrison was fourth in the shot
put with a throw of 33-06.50.
"I think she did very well in
the discus, she had a couple of
good throws," Turner said. "I
think she has some stiff
competition in the discus, but I
think she has a chance to make
the final in the shot put and
come home with a medal."
