ordinance discussed by City Commissioners
on Monday.

officials as well.

community with a significant number of
families with young children moving into the
community, City Commissioner Joe Hoffman
said the issue of sexual predators moving into
the area is of major concern. According to'

Glanzer: Newberry citizens need to be

aware of sexual predators in the area


Hoffman, the area doesn't have
enough radius to define where
offenders could live. He's
hopeful the ordinance will keep
these offenders as far away as
possible from schools, daycare
centers, churches, and other
locations that are frequently
populated by children.
As an area little league coach
Hoffman often hears from
parents their concerns about
safety. Hoffman said there
should be concern among
residents because he believes
offenders oftentimes commit
other sexually related crimes
again after being convicted of an
original charge.
Newberry Mayor John
Glanzer is hopeful the proposed


ordinance will make residents
aware of the issue of sexual
predators in the area.
On Monday Newberry City
Commissioners voted three to
two to table the issue for a future
Commission meeting, citing
concerns in items and language
in the proposed ordinance. Both
Hoffman and Commissioner
Monty Farnsworth were the
dissenters.. Hoffman said after
the vote that he hopes Newberry
can have the ordinance in place
soon to help ensure the safety of
children living in Newberry.
The Commission is expected
to visit the issue again at the
meeting scheduled for June 11.

Ask Your Dentist byDougla.


Braces Not just for kids'


Q: I'm an adult. Can I get
braces that are not noticeable?
A: Adults are a rapidly
growing segment of the
orthodontic patient
community. Many, in fact, are
back for a second time after a
first go-round as teenagers. In
fact, the American
Association of Orthodontists
showed a 37-percent increase
in the number of adult
orthodontic patients from
1994 to 2004, the most recent
figures available. More than a
million adults in the United
States are currently in braces,
according to the association.
The modem brace system
for the most part consists of
small brackets glued to the


front of each tooth and a wire
threaded through them.
Classic silver-colored braces
are still the most common and
are the least expensive. But
there are less visible styles.
Generally, the less noticeable
the braces, the more
expensive. If you want to.
correct your teeth's alignment,
talk with your dentist. Braces
are a different proposition for'
an adult, whose oral structure
is no longer flexible as it was.'
when he or she was an
adolescent. Sometimes other
specialists, like an oral
surgeon, should be consulted
when considering braces for
an adult.

High Springs parks to receive



county funded improvements


By DAN REID
Today Reporter


HIGH SPRINGS Thanks to the Competitive
Municipal Park Grant Program, two parks in High
Springs will be receiving improvements. The City
of High Springs and Alachua County have come to
terms on an interlocal agreement for funding
improvements to City parks through the Competitive
Municipal Park Grant Program.
The program will assist the High Springs Sports
Complex in installing sports lighting and general
park lighting at the facility. High Springs Memorial
Park will also see funding from the program as
improvements are ready to be made for new playing


fields for T-ball and soccer, along with a new picnic
pavilion and tennis courts.
Funding for the Sports Complex cannot exceed
$50,000, while funding for High Springs Memorial
Park will be allocated a maximum of $25,000 in
improvements.
The City of High Springs is required to provide
Alachua County with a schedule for design and
construction, cost estimates for each project and
manage the actual construction.
The interlocal agreement between High Springs
and Alachua County will be in effect through Sept.
30, 2008.


Summer Food Service Program


for area children


PARK:


Two additional buildings slated for


Continuedfp-ompage Al construction
The building is already fully occupied by
companies including AxoGen, Inc, Nanotherapeutics,
Inc., Tutogen and Novamin.
Tuesday's ribbon-cutting allowed several area
experts to comment on the impact of Progress
Corporate Park and biotechnology on the surrounding
communities.
Shaw gave credit to the University of Florida for
the park's success saying, "We have the University of
Florida leadership to thank for giving us the courage
to go forward and build the first spec building in
Progress Corporate Park in over 20 years.
"UF has worked hard in the last five years to keep
local dollars here.
"Now we have the number one incubator in the
United States and the number two incubator in the
world.
"And the University of Florida is number three in
universities receiving royalties," Shaw said.
Brent Christiansen of the Council for Economic
Outreach and Gainesville area Chamber of
Commerce jokingly said, "I wake up every morning
as an economic developer and thank God for the City
ofAlachua." Christiansen highlighted the importance
of investing in biotechnology facilities to attract
greater interests from abroad. And so far, Christiansen
said, it has been paying off. Christiansen cited


over next year
numerous examples of the national and international
publicity garnered by the park, Sid Martin

Alachua Mayor Gib Coerper noted the importance
of the corporate park on the area's job market.
"There are 950 people working in Progress
Corporate Park.
"Hold onto your hats for the next 10 years because
it's going to be an exciting ride," Coerper told the
dozens people gathered for the opening.
Shaw commented on the explosion of growth
taking place. "Progress Corporate Park has finally
gotten on the international map and is starting to
attract the venture capital and entrepreneurial talent
that we need but haven't had a lot of previously."
The entrepreneurial talent includes executives
who know how the biotechnology industry works and
how to raise capital to fund research. That talent,
Christiansen and Shaw said tends to be recycled in a
strong and growing environment as leaders move
from one successful company to another.
With Progress One already at capacity, Shaw said
plans are already underway to break ground in the
next 90 days on two like-sized facilities to be located
a little further down on Progress Boulevard.

Lost but not forgotten
SNow is the time


The best of Ellen Boukari

F olks who are really in the
know are aware that
airlines and washing
machines have much in
common. Yes, that would
Sbe aside from the fact,
that fundamentally, they are both
containers capable of making an
incredible amount of noise. An
additional commonality is their
propensity to lose objects.
If you've ever been
annoyed after a washing g S
machine apparently "digested"
your socks, be thankful that
airlines aren't in the sock -
washing business. That would -
certainly be a blueprint for
disaster as it has recently been
reported that airlines lost an
estimated 30 million pieces of
luggage in 2005. And get this
the airlines are admitting
that 200,000 of those bags
remained lost, although airline
execs prefer the term ELLI
"mishandled." Tod
Now I don't know about
you, but I just don't fly that often. But
putting the right luggage on the right
plane doesn't seem all that complicated.
I can talk about this because I wash a
heck of a lot of clothes, and with each
person having two feet and wearing at
least a gazillion pairs of socks a day,
that's a lot of socks. And I have never
lost said socks because I loaded them in
the wrong washing machine.
But I must admit I have never been
able to fully understand where the lost,
stolen, or abducted socks go and why
they do so in single fashion, rather than
in pairs. At one time, when the
children's feet were small, at about age
one month, it was tolerable when a
bootie disappeared every now and
then. But with shoes approaching size


14, socks that large have no businesses
melting into nothingness or ending up
who knows where. Sometimes life's
little mysteries baffle more than the big
ones. I'm not asking for the secrets of
the universe or even why psychics don't
win the lottery, I'm just asking what
many inquiring minds have asked over
the years.
Which bring us back to the friendly
skies and the fact that the airline
industry is in a
quagmire losing


EN BOUKARI
lay Columnist


money, losing
luggage, and in this
case, losing
credibility, because
the problem of lost
luggage is, well...
do w night
embarrassing. Last
year, "mishandled"
luggage cost world
airlines $2.5 billion,
compared with $1.6
billion in 2004.
We're not talking
tiny purses
here. We're talking
hefty pieces of


luggage with nametags and airline
tracking labels. So the story is that
airlines are developing a quality
improvement system of using tiny
computer-style chips on luggage tags to
keep track of baggage. They say this
will reduce the number of misdirected
bags. This is doubtful, but now they
will at least know where the,misdirected
bag is. Some improvement is better
than none, theoretically anyway.
In my household, I have
implemented my own quality
improvement process. Socks, all socks,
regardless of manufacturer, or owner,
are given a two-week period in which
they may be reunited with their mates.
If the offending sock remains a
singleton after two weeks, its days of


lying around languishing and
woebegone, are over. Out it goes. No
reprieves, no appeal rights that sock
is history.
Unlike my standard operating
procedure of single sock disposal, there
is apparently no industry standard
worldwide for permanently lost
luggage, meaning what to do with them
is up to the airline. In the United States,
Scbttsboro, Alabama is home to the
Unclaimed Baggage Center where more
than one million lost items are sold
annually. In addition to cameras,
electronics, sporting goods, and
jewelry, luggage is sold. No kidding. I
wonder if they have a special section for
niismatched socks.
By the way, if you're interested in
visiting this bastion of Americana, the
Alabama Bureau of Tourism & Travel
touts the center as a place to "Discover
for yourself America's best-kept
shopping secret! More than 7,000 new
items daily!" Operating hours are
Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to
6 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If
you're not up for the journey, or you
just aren't sure if this is your type of
vacation, visit the website
unclaimedbaggage.com where you'll
find these "lost treasures from around
the world" and get a better idea if this
wasteland of the lost is for you.
And the next time you're waiting for
your bag at the luggage claim carousel,
you will be reassured to know that
unlike. socks that are never retrieved,
your bag may get a second chance and
end up somewhere in Alabama at the
home of the "mishandled," lost, but not
forgotten.

If we think we are al\xals safe.

we need do is take note of the recent

The point one can take from all of
these horrific situations is that no one
can accurately predict the thoughts

palpable manifestations ma> be
apparent. Will a troubled south
commit suicide, or decide to
compound his act by slay ing others
prior to his self-destruction?
Will the quiet, serious man %we
have become used to seeing about
town suddenly erupt in a murderous
rage against real or imagined slights?
At what point do we become
alarmed enough at irrational or
threatening beha ior to take positive
steps, and are those steps appropriate
without solid evidence of potential
harm?
I pose these questions because of
the \ery real potential for a similar

Popoli: Process was a learning

experience


Safety Committee unanimously approved the draft for
review by High Springs City Commissioners in the
coming month. The passing of the diaft comes a month
after Commissioners passed a moratorium banning adult
businesses from opening in High Springs for a period of
six months. Last month's passing of the moratorium was
the fifth time the Commission has approved a
moratorium limiting adult businesses from entering the
area.
One of the purposes of the proposed ordinance is to
protect the City of High Springs from possible litigation
regarding adult entertainment business locating in the
area. Another key aspect of the ordinance is operating
hours. Public safety board members insisted during final
review on Tuesday that a store must be closed form 11
p.m. to 9 am. to ensure that High Springs remains a safe
community during the overnight hours.
High Springs City Attorney Jim Pendland has said
previously that the written draft first presented to the
Committee was modified at the committee's request
prior to forwarding the document to the Commission.
Pendland could not be reached for comment on
Wednesday morning for additional comment.
Public Safety Committee Vice-Chairman Rick Testa
is hopeful the Commission will pass the ordinance
S immediately.


"We hope it goes in there and gets taken care of," said
Testa.
Testa said a high level of work and effort was
generated by the committee to have a final draft that
Would be acceptable to High Springs and its residents.
High Springs City Planner Christian Popoli, who
assisted Pendland in the drafting process, was pleased the
Safety Committee gave approval for Commission
review, but won't feel total relief until the ordinance
becomes law in High Springs. Popoli said being
involved in the process was a learning experience for him
and that the work the project entailed was demanding.
According to Popoli, part of the research involved
community discussion on residents' desires about the
issue. Also, research was done in examining ordinances
from throughout the state. Popoli said examining other
ordinances was a creative way to look at the issue of
adult entertainment businesses.
When asked if he felt confident the City Commission
would give prompt approval, Popoli said he was
confident the Commission would be satisfied with the
ordinance. Popoli was quick to point out, however, that
Commissioners must do their homework on the issue
and come up with some important fact finding on the
matter.

TECHNOLOGY: Testing wouldn't involve pain

or inconvenience


"We are developing lines of devices that can
detect things through breath rather than through
direct testing of blood or urine," said Allen, CEO of
Xhale.
Allen said Xhale has the licenses for about 20
patents from the University of Florida and is
currently working to develop two lines of breath-
based products, one that would monitor medication
levels and another that would measure glucose
level in the blood.
"We've been in product development for about
a year with the medication monitor," Allen said.
"We expect the product to launch somewhere in the
middle or near the end of 2008."
Allen said the monitor would be used to see if
patients are taking the correct dosage of their
medications at the correct time intervals. The
device works by detecting the presence of a
substance that is added to medication in the breath.
A patient would blow into the device immediately
after taking his or her medication.
Allen said this type of product could lead into a
line of products he calls SMART, which stands for
"Self Monitoring and Reporting Therapeutics."
"This is probably a 10 to 15 billion dollar


market which we can enter into in which we
already have prototypes and are in the final stages
of development," he said.
Allen contrasted the progress made in the
medication monitor line with that of the device to
measure glucose levels, which is strictly in the
research stage.
"People are always interested in our progress
with the glucose monitor, because it could really
improve testing for people with diabetes as it
wouldn't involve the pain or inconvenience of
taking blood samples," Allen said.
Allen mentioned that he thinks the market for
glucose monitors will expand from its current eight
billion dollars to a market of 12 to 15 billion dollars
when Xhale launches its device.
Xhale is likely to build and move into its own
laboratories and office space sometime in 2008,
Allen said. Currently, Xhale's labs are located at
the University of Florida's Sid Martin
Biotechnology Development Incubator in Alachua
while its corporate and engineering offices are in
the Downtown Technology Center in Gainesville.

booths on display at the festival.
Arts and crafts booths with
vendors selling jewelry and
paintings were only a few of the
many items which were scattered
throughout the event.
But the Watermelon Festival
wasn't only for spectators, as
some attendees chose instead, to
become participants in numerous
contests throughout the day.
The "Hog Calling" contest,
which has been a staple of the
festival for the past decade, lives
up to its name by having each
participant belt out his or her best
pig-enticing call. Trophies and
participation ribbons were
awarded to contestants according
to age groups. In addition, there


ssica Southard crowned Newberry Watermelon Queen


was a "Watermelon Eating
contest" in which trophies were
presented to individuals who
could eat the most watermelon the
fastest.
Other participatory events at
the festival included the
"Watermelon Seed Spitting
Contest" and the "Watermelon
Roll."
Some tried their hand at
holding on for eight seconds as
they sat atop a mechanical bull
which bucked and spun around.
People could also take witness
to the Pie and Cake Baking
Contest where judges sampled
and chose the pies and cakes that
were the tastiest. Coming in first
this year was Emily Holt's Gooey
Butter Cake followed

But competition wasn't on
everyone's mind. Newberry's
own Mark Copeland kicked off
the musical evening followed
by recording artist Chris Young
who headlined for the festival.
A Watermelon Festival has
more to offer than just cold
juicy slices of ripe melons.
The traditional pageants
remain a favorite among
festival goers. Jessica
Southard was crowned the
Newberry Watermelon Queen,
winning in the 17-23 year old
division. Megan Marsh was

a Newberry to face
Buchholz in spring game at
Citizens' Field on May 25th


By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
A year ago, the Newberry High School
football team still had one week of practice
remaining after its 46-28 spring-jamboree
win at Crystal River. The Panthers took
advantage of that practice time and then
wrapped up their month-long spring session
with the Blue and Gold intrasquad
scrimmage.
But this spring things are different.
With the way the schedule is laid out,
Newberry will conclude,
its fourth and final week
of spring practice next
Friday night as they head
to Gainesville for this
year's spring jamboree
against Buchholz at
Citizens' Field.
Keeler "We had the Blue and
Gold intrasquad game
last year after the spring game; we had that
extra week last year," said Newberry head
coach Tommy Keeler. "But this year we're
not having one before the Buchholz game.
There is really no need. I like this scenario
a lot better."

formal Blue and Gold scrimmage this time

Battreal, who officially

Spur in San




Antonio

By ADAMBOUKARI
tdtw Sorts Cotumnist
We all know that the NBA
heats up during playoff time.
Fans actually get to see teams
play some defense instead of
just an offensive shoot around
session like many regular
season games seem to be.
But, things really seem to
have gotten more than hot
with the Spurs-Suns series, in
fact it seems that the rivalry
has reached a boiling point.
Thanks to a Game 4
"altercation," three
suspensions have been issued
from the league office.
The first came to Spurs
veteran Robert Horry who
committed a more than
flagrant foul against Suns'
guard Steven Nash. Horry
was suspended for two
games, while Phoenix's
Amare Stoudemire and Boris
Diaw were each handed a one
game suspension.
What Horry did \\as pret*l
ridiculous, underhanded and
shameful. He's known for
coming up with huge shots to
win a game everywhere he's
played and now he does
something like this. This just
shows his true character.
For those who may not be
aware of what exactly Horry
did, he knocked Nash under
the scorer's table with a
powerful forearm to his upper
body. It was flat out
unacceptable. So, the NBA
decided to give Horry a two-
game suspension which
seems as fair as it possibly
can be considering the
severity of his actions.
What has become the point
of contention for Suns' fans,
executives and players are the

Today Sports Writer
ALACHUA With just three
weeks of work under their belts,
the Santa Fe High School
football team is going to put its
work to the test on Friday. The
Raiders will travel to Live Oak
Suwannee to face the Bulldogs
at 7 p.m. in a spring jamboree.
While the spring contest will
showcase the two programs'
progress thus far this spring,
Santa Fe was forced indoors for
much of last week due to smoke
from area fires and has been
(te ^;4> :; *.


forced to tone down its
offensive approach for spring
purposes.
"The fires have been a bigger
issue than I thought
they would be,"
explained first-year
Raider head coach
Bart Brooks: "The
administration ,
allowed us the use
of the gym. We
were in the gym for Brooks
three days with half
pads and shorts. It really slows
things down on offense.
Defense it's not so much a
problem because it gives you
time to teach and walk through
things.
"The biggest thing is safety
-- t:


and I didn't want to put these
players in harm's way. It did
slow down the execution part of
our offense."
Because of time
constraints and the fires
slowing down the spring
process, Brooks says his
team has had to make
: adjustments and reel back
the offense that was
anticipated to be in place.
"It's a very vanilla
offense, not much to it.
We kind of took the offense that
we originally wanted to do and
made it very basic because of
the time constraint," said
Brooks. "Is this the offense

Area team wins championship


SANTA FE:
Continued from page B1
you're going to see in the fall?
Absolutely not. This is
something we had to do because
of the short amount of time."
And who will be heading up
that offense is still in question
as well. According to Brooks
there are still three players
vying for the position of
quarterback for the spring.
"It's a three way battle
between Darian Taylor, Stephon
Lott and Lane Presnell and
that's in no particular order,"
leveled Brooks. "We're going
into the game to try to get as
many guys as many snaps as
possible. The goal in the spring


is to get as many guys on film as
possible."
The jamboree is set up so that
there are three varsity quarters
and one junior varsity quarter.
Each quarter is the standard 12
minutes long, but there will be
no kickoffs or punts, just extra
points and field goals for
special teams. Brooks says that
his goal in the spring is
primarily fundamentals.
"I'm not real big on naming
starters in the spring. We're
going to name our starters in the
fall," said Brooks. "My goal
and the goal pretty much
everywhere I coached has been
to just make sure the guys are
lining up right, playing their
assignments. You want to make


sure that you're doing the
fundamentals correctly."
Lining up in the backfield for
the Raiders will primarily be
Deonte Merricks, Jamal White
and Leon Williams, while Santa
Fe is testing out a large corps of
possible receivers for the fall.
Those include Chris Dixon,
Billy Doering, Kelvyn Garcia,
Keenan Jenkins, Ty Jones, Ryan
Rodriguez, Taylor, White and
Williams.
Handling the kicking duties
for the Raiders will be freshman
notable Collin Mixon. He will


be kicking extra points and field
goals against the Bulldogs.
"We're going to try to move
the ball a little bit on offense
and put it in the end zone," said
Brooks. "You want to make
sure your defense is reading its
keeps, making fundamental
tackles and getting off blocks.
The team that blocks and
tackles the best will generally
be the team that ends up
winning the game."

football program.
"He has a great work ethic; the kid
is going to give everything he's got. He
has good character and he is going to
be a good fit up there at LaGrange,"
said Newberry head coach Tommy
Keeler. "He knows what it's like, he
knows what it takes and that's why I
think his attitude and his work ethic
can make a contribution there."
Battreal said that coaching staff at
LaGrange plans to use him as a tight
end or an H-back, which is a
combination of the fullback and tight


end positions. Keeler said he could see
Battreal contributing right away as a
long snapper, which was another


more football," Battreal said.
"Everything that we've known for the
last four years of our lives was just cut

No.

involved in the altercation, but
rather to check in at the scorer's
table. Well, if you look at the
tape of the incident, the NBA
has never seen anybody run that
fast to check into the game. It
was a good try by Stoudemire to
use that excuse, and he deserves
credit for the creativity, but it
certainly wasn't good enough for
the NBA.
What's interesting is how dirty
the Suns-Spurs rivalry has
become. There have been
accusations of kneeing players,
intentionally hitting, dirty plays,
you name it, this rivalry has it.
And, that's not something to be
proud of either. The game
should be the centerpiece of the
playoffs, not some fight or
foolish behavior.
When you've got two great
teams like the Spurs and the
Suns going at it in a playoff
atmosphere, that's enough. The
extracurricular activities need to
go away, because both teams can
put on a display of great
basketball.
A little physicality is a good
thing, just ask Olivia Newton-
John, but not to the point where
it becomes a distraction of the
sport itself.
The NBA was right in its
ruling and while it may be unfair
to the Suns, it's important that
the players be held responsible
for their actions and for breaking
league rules.

batting average. The star pitcher
recorded 43 hits, 15 doubles, 1
triple and 5 homeruns to go
along with 42 runs batted in.
As a pitcher for the Raiders,
Findley had a spotless record of
20-0 last season for Santa Fe in
addition to a .29 earned run
average. She struck out 233
batters and walked just 20 all
season long.
"It's definitely different than
high school ball," admitted
Findley about her first year
pitching at.the collegiate level.
"One through nine hit really
well. It was fun and I feel like
next year I can do a lot better.
We had seven freshmen and a
junior college transfer, so there
were a lot of people new to
Division-I ball."
This past season, Findley led
the Ospreys with 144 strikeouts
in 158.2 innings of work. The
southpaw finished the season
ranked among the top five in the
conference in strikeouts,
shutouts, opponents' batting
average, saves and innings
pitched.
Findley was not only named
the freshman of the year, she
also earned the right to be on
the First Team All-Atlantic-Sun
Conference, just one of two
pitchers in the conference on
the team.
The Ospreys carried a 33-24,
9-9 A-Sun record this past
spring and played competition


from all over 'the country.
However, Findley says her
favorite place to play this past
season was in her hometown
against the Florida Gators. The
Ospreys came up on the short
end of the two-game series, but
Findley says it was worth the
trip.
"It was fun playing against
Florida because it was in my
home town," said Findley.
"That was definitely really
exciting. It was also fun
traveling to Arizona State for
their tournament."
Findley has another three
years with the Ospreys and says
she plans to make the most out


of her experience and her new
home in Jacksonville.
"You have to keep working
hard and never be satisfied with
where you're at," said Findley.
"I love Jacksonville. It's a
bigger city and there's more
stuff. It's close enough if I need
to go home for something I can,
but far away enough where I'm
on my own."

thankful to have a second opportunity
to play football again and maybe prove
something that I wasn't able to prove in
high school football."
At the next level, Battreal said the
biggest thing he needs to work on is his
ability to catch the football. But like
Newberry, LaGrange is also a team that
predominantly runs the ball, which
gives Battrcal more of a role as a
blocker.
Battreal said he plans on majoring in
engineering and would like to come
back to the Gainesville area to start his
own business some day. He also would
like to continue to play football
following school, possibly on the semi-
pro level.
And while Battreal has put in the
time and the energy in order to give
himself an opportunity to play football


at the college level, he is also grateful'
for the help he has received from
Keeler.
"I would never trade my time here at
Newberry for anything else. A couple
of years ago I was thinking about
transferring to GHS [Gainesville High
School], just because I didn't like the
program here, but then coach Keeler
came in," said Battreal. "He opened me
up to opportunities on the field and he
helped me push myself more than I
ever knew I could have.
"I really appreciate everything coach
Keeler has ever done for me. Honestly
if it weren't for him I don't think I
would be going to college."
