Getting tough with sexual predators


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS The City of High
Springs is getting tough with sexual
offenders. The City is preparing to
implement strict laws about where
registered sexual offenders or predators can


live in the city as well as establishing
penalties for property owners that rent to
certain sexual offenders.
The High Springs Public Safety
Committee is currently investigating the
issue and will have more discussion on the
matter at the committee's next meeting in


June. The proposed legislation came at the
urging of High Springs Police Chief Ray
Kaminskas last year. Kaminskas is

Alachua leaders


concerned for


recreation programs


By DAVID WISENER
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Members of
the Alachua City Commission
voiced concern at their regular
meeting Monday night about
the future of recreational
programs in the county.
On the heels of accepting
two grants totaling over
$200,000 from the Alachua
County Board of
Commissioners through the
Competitive Municipal Park


Grant Program Interlocal
Agreement, City Commissioner
Jean Calderwood said that,
while she was grateful to the
county for the grants Alachua
received, she feared that the
County Commission would
continue to decrease
recreational funding.

4 Village Development


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS After
years of revisions and delays
the proposed Santa Fe River
Village development, which
will include about 120 new
homes specifically for senior.
citizens, will go before the City
of High Springs
Commissioners this Thursday.


BRYAN BOUKARI/Alachua County Today
Family and friends gathered at Newnansville Cemetery Wednesday to pay their final respects to Glynn Markham, a local retired
businessman and veteran.


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Glynn Markham will
long be remembered as a local hero and
patriot. The World War II veteran died
Sunday at the age of 80. Born in Lake City
in 1926, Markham later moved to
Gainesville and resided in Alachua since
1966.
Scores of family and friends gathered
Wednesday to honor the late Markham at
First Baptist Church of Alachua where he
was a member and a Deacon. Markham
was also a member of the Alachua Lions


Club for nearly 40 years where he served as
president and received the honorary Melvin
Jones Award.
Markham's varied career,
civic memberships and
advocacy on behalf of veterans
made him a local icon. He
joined the U.S. Navy at just
17-years-old and was sent to
Bainbridge, Maryland, where
he began Basic Training,
became the Regimental Bugler
and went through Signal
School. He went on to serve ,
his country in World War II in Markham


the Europe and Pacific Theaters and the
Korean War.
In World War II Markham
served aboard a destroyer, the
USS McCook, during the D-Day
invasion on the beaches of
Normandy, France. During an
interview several years ago
about his experience during the
key World War II battle,
Markham said, "It is a day that
will never fade from my
memory.".

MARKHAM on page A 7


The development is slated
to be built on property located
on the northbound side of U.S.
Highway 441 just past the High
Springs plaza and before the
entrance to Camp Kulaqua.
According to developer Larry
Lackey, the original plan for the
development called for 177
-single family homes geared for
senior adults.

Also on the committee were
Robert Jemigan, Jim Yakubsin,
Jim Lynch, Brian Hill, Frank

of a new wastewater treatment facility toward
the end of the summer.

The Statute mentions that
anyone who has been convicted
of a sexual violation in which
the victim was less than 16
years of age is not allowed to
reside within 1,000 feet of any
school, daycare center, or

High Springs is trying to make
the ordinance tougher than the
current Florida law.
Last fall the City of
Gainesville passed an ordinance
which prohibited registered
child sexual offenders and
predators from living within
2,500 feet of parks in the area.
More recently the Newberry

enacting an ordinance that

area. Newberry Commissioner
Joe Hoffman, who is helping to
spearhead the proposed
Newberry ordinance, has
previously said there is concern
on the matter of sexual
predators living in the area.
High Springs Commissioner
Jim Gabriel said it's important
for High Springs to have
guidelines in the regarding
sexual predators moving in the
city. Gabriel said the city needs
to take the necessary
precautions to ensure the safety
of area children.

Ask Your Dentist byDoui sM,


Cysts

Q: Is a cyst in your mouth
dangerous?
A: If what you have is
truly a cyst, the answer is
probably not. A cyst is a sac or
pouch that forms in soft tissue
or bone and contains material
that ranges in consistency
from fluid to semi-fluid to
solid. In rare instances,
though, a cyst can undergo a
malignant transformation. A
cyst can be caused by a
developmental abnormality,
blockage of a duct or by
infection. Trauma can also
cause a cyst to develop. Cysts
are generally painless but may
be an impediment to eating or
speaking. A type of cyst called
an eruption cyst can develop


when teeth are erupting.
These will generally rupture as
the teeth emerge and require
no treatment. Cysts that
develop in the jaw can leave
the bone more susceptible to
fracture.
Treatment for cysts
depends on the type. Most are
surgically removed, while
others may require only
draining. If you notice any
sort of abnormal growth -in
your mouth, bring it to the
attention of your doctor.
While cysts are generally
benign, tumors can be more of
a problem, usually requiring a
biopsy to determine whether
they are benign or malignant.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2007 A5




That great big mansion in the sky!


What does Heaven look like
to you? Many people think of
Heaven as being a large city,
with streets of gold and gates
made of pearls (i.e. the Pearly
Gates). There's even a hymn
where the singers say they're
eventually going to the "great
big mansion in the sky."
The Book of Revelations,
Chapters 21 and 22, describes
the coming of the City of Glory
as a beautiful, wonderful place,
with no need to worry about
safety, because this is the place
where God lives.
Now, check out the Gospel
of John, specifically, Chapter
15: 28b. In that verse Jesus
says, "If you love Me, you
would rejoice that I am going to


the Father." To me, that almost
sounds as if Jesus is looking
forward to
going back
home to
Heaven!
Both
these texts
resonate -
with hope
a n d ''
promises.
Revelations a/
assures us Deborah Pangras
that Heaven Commissioned L
is a Pastor
wonderful McIntosh Presby
place, where Church
we will
spend eternity with God, while
Jesus' goodbye tells us how


s
tay

)ter


He's excited about going to that
city, but reassuring us that He'll
come back for us, so we
can join Him there.
Along with His
loving goodbye, Jesus
tells us in this text about
how He will ensure each
new believer knows Him,
I even though they didn't
come to know Him until
after the crucifixion.
S And how is that to be
accomplished, you ask?
No, Jesus isn't going
.to appear to each new
rian believer, as He did to
Thomas, holding out His
wounded hands and
encouraging people to touch
those wounds. Jesus tells us


that He will be known to others
by us "doing His works and
keeping His commandments."
And, He's promising that by
doing this, we will also
experience His presence.
"Those who love Me will keep
My Word, and'My Father will
love them, and We will come to
them and make Our home with
them." (John 14:23)
Actually, what I believe
Jesus is doing in these verses is
reassuring His disciples that,
even though He would be going
to the Father,-and wouldn't be
popping up at various cross
roads and beaches as He had in
the weeks since He'd been
crucified, the disciples would be
filled with the gifts of the Holy


Spirit. His absence would leave
an empty space in their lives,
yes, but it would eventually be
filled with divine presence.
How will that happen? It
happens when people read the
Word of God, reflect upon it,
and pray for God's will to be
done in their lives. And when I
say pray, I don't mean a laundry
list of wants and desires as if
God was a great big Santa
Clause for adults. I mean really
pray not our will be done, but
God's.
We don't know what the
future holds, but we do know
Who holds the future. We can
have peace because we know,
we have faith, that there is One
.Who is returning for us.


The future holds much
promise but. the greatest
promise is this: Where Jesus is,
there we will be, too. Until that
day, Jesus dwells within us and
among us. Let us keep His
words in our hearts and the
Spirit within our midst.
"Peace I leave with you, My
peace I give to you. I do not'
give to you.as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be
troubled. Neither let them be
afraid." (John 14:27)
Now, your assignment, if
you choose .to accept it, is: Go
out this week, and share Christ's
peace with your world!
Shalom!

better," DiVito said.
DiVito credits the Shriners
with saving Earl's life. He said
the skin grafts Earl received
during Sunday's surgery seem to
be effective and the hope is that
he will be able to return home in
a couple of months.
"Little Earl's progress is
really encouraging, especially
since he was able to get out of
the hospital today for the first
time and went to a park in a
wheelchair," DiVito said
Tuesday night.
DiVito has not stopped
trying to raise funds to help
Earl's family since he was
hospitalized. Earl's father, Earl
Gardner, Jr., is the self-
employed owner and operator of
Al Academy Carpet Cleaner
who DiVito said is hard-pressed
to make ends meet while the
family stays at Little Earl's side.
"We're just trying to help
keep this family afloat with day-
to-day expenses. We haven't
even touched on helping to take
care of the hospital bills,"
DiVito said.


"We need all the help we can
get. Their entire house is going
to have to be remodeled to help
take care of Little Earl when he
comes home. We need a lot of
donations, not just of money but
of time, from everyone from
carpenters to plumbers to help
with the house."
DiVito was thankful for all
the help already given to the
Gardner family, which includes
the University of Florida, which
DiVito said has rented Earl, Jr.'s
carpet cleaning equipment to
clean some of its dorms.
Any donations to help Little
Earl and his family can be sent

Union in Alachua, 14520 NW

am afraid that the County
Commission will continue to
reduce recreational funding even
further than they already have," she
said.
Calderwood listed a variety of
statistics involving the City of
Alachua's recreation program,
including the fact that 72-percent of
the children participating in the
sports programs offered by the City
live in unincorporated areas of the
county, outside of Alachua's city
limits. Unincorporated areas of the
county typically rely almost strictly
on county services since they lie
outside of city jurisdictions.
"I urge all our citizens to contact
the County Commission and urge


them not to further reduce
recreational funding," Calderwood
said.
Alachua Mayor Gib Coerper
supported Calderwood's stance, as
did City Manager Clovis Watson,
Jr.
"The county has been shifting
resources to homeless funding,
which is of importance, but maybe
they should switch some of that
funding over to recreation so our
children \von't become homeless,"
Watson said.

Waldo crashes force ContinuedKHApage A To be honored at City's Memorial Day ceremony


closure of US 301


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
WALDO The beginning of
the work week didn't start too
well for drivers who traveled on
U.S. Highway 301 in Waldo as
two separate vehicle crashes
SMonday morning forced closure
of the road for three hours.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP) the first
crash occurred at 7 a.m. when a
semi truck driven by 32-year-old
Shawn Christensen of Augusta,
Georgia struck the back of a
vehicle driven by 56-year-old
Middleburg resident Arnold
Wilson. FHP officials said
Wilson's truck was at a complete
stop because of a separate crash
on the road. Wilson,
Christensen, and 22-year-old
Brenda Christensen, who was a
passenger with Shawn
Christensen, were not injured in
Sthe accident.
The vehicle driven by


Christensen received $2,000 in
damages, while Wilson's truck
had an estimated $4,000 in
damages.
The second accident
occurred one half hour later as a
1993 Ford driven by 23-year-old
Jeffrey Martin of Hawthorne
struck a 1995 Chevrolet pickup
driven by 23-year-old Neptune
Beach resident Nicholas
Langdon while Langdon was
attempting to switch lanes.
According to the FHP, Langdon
could not see when he was
changing lanes due to dense
smoke and fog that was lingering
in the area. The two drivers
were not injured and both
vehicles each sustained $500
worth of damages.
It was not determined as of
late Monday afternoon if any of
the drivers who were involved in
both accidents would be
charged.


Months before deployment in the
Korean War, Markham was dating
Frances Gentry, a University of Florida
student from Ocala. In October 1950,
Markham sold his beloved Jeep and
bought Frances an engagement ring.
They were married on January 21, 1951,
and Glynn went back into the service
three weeks later. He was sent to
Charleston, South Carolina, then to
Norfolk, Virginia, where he boarded the
new destroyer, the USS Corry.
Markham's patriotism was a quality
he carried in all aspects and for the
duration of his life. He frequently played
Taps on the bugle at many military
services and funerals even after his
health began to fail several years ago.
Markham was a co-founder of D-Day
Veterans and a charter member of the
local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW)
Post 9229.
On the 50th Anniversary of D-Day
Normandy, he and Frances spent five
days in Normandy on Omaha Beach,
where he had landed 50 years earlier in
the World War II invasion.
Markham owned and operated the
Rebel House Restaurant for 33 years. He
also worked for Graham-Jones Paper
Company for 17. years and co-owned


Gainesville Paper Company for eight
years. Markham was an active member
of Sons of Confederate Veterans.
During funeral services Wednesday,
friends reminisced about Markham's
patriotic nature and joked about the
veteran's persistent request that people
join him in singing "God Bless
America", always adding, "Sing it like
you mean it." Markham led the Alachua
Lions Club in singing the patriotic song
at every meeting he attended.
Over the course of decades, Markham
saw that many flagpoles bearing the
American flag were erected across the
area. Remembering and honoring
veterans was a strong passion of
Markham who was active in obtaining
grants and commitments for veterans'
memorials. MoSt recently, Markham sat
on a veterans' memorial committee with
the City of Alachua. That memorial is
being unveiled Monday during a
Memorial Day ceremony in front of
Alachua's new City Hall. But as well
known as Markham was for his
patriotism, he was equally as well known
locally for his love of taking photos of
family, friends and military events.
Navy chaplain Glenn Busby of
Branford eulogized Markham as


Reverend Doug Felton officiated the
funeral services. The song "Wind
Beneath My Wings," the hymn "How
Great Thou Art" and a-series of patriotic
songs were performed at Markham's
service Wednesday.
A graveside service was conducted at
Newnansville Cemetery where Navy
ROTC crewman presented Markham's
wife with the folded American flag that
had been draped over his coffin. The
tearful widow accepted the flag at the
conclusion of the service. Friends and
family were invited for a luncheon after
the burial service.
In addition to his wife Frances,
Markham is survived by his daughter and
son-in-law, Cynthia and Stephen
Andrews of Lake City; son and daughter-
in-law Fredrick L. and Nancy Markham
of Knoxville, Tennessee; sister, Clorece
Hayes of Hoschton, Georgia; and four
grandchildren, Brian and Michael
Andrews and Martha and Andrew
Markham. Glynn Markham was
preceded in death by his parents Dorphus
Roe and Bessie Lee Markham, three
brothers and a sister.

COE: Runs track, media aide
Continued from page Al and in school's book club


In addition to the chemistry
and Spanish courses that she'll
be taking five days a week for
75 minutes each day, Coe will
also be taking a cooking class
and participating in a variety of
other enrichment programs at
Emory. According to
information provided by the
university, the goal of the
Summer Institute for the Gifted
is to bring together students who
are "committed to academic
excellence, social and emotional
growth, and creative and
recreational excitement."
Students accepted to the
program "are expected to
perform at the upper level of
their capabilities." Coe says
that's just fine with her.
"I like to challenge myself a
lot, and I'm pretty self-
motivated," she said. "I think


this is going to be a really good
experience for me."
A student in High Springs'
gifted program, Coe is
extremely well-rounded. In
addition to maintaining
excellent grades, she also runs
track, is involved in the school's
book club and works as a media
aide. Ultimately she'd like to
become a pediatrician. Media
specialist Judith Weaver, who
recommended Coe for the
institute, says the program will
be a great step toward that goal.
"She'll have a chance to see
Emory, which is a place that she
could eventually go to study
medicine," said Weaver. "I think
she's really going to bloom, and
I think she's going to knock
them out with her talent."

Camping -


The best of Ellen Boukari
Memorial Day weekend is a time
when people head out of town, akin to the
great Exodus, for a few days of rest and
relaxation. And instead of staying at the
Holiday-Inn-Hilton-Suites, some folks go
camping in tents, campers and RVs.
According to some important
researchers with impressive sounding
credentials, camping is the number one
outdoor vacation activity in
America. Most adult campers are
married with children at home,
which explains why they go .
camping rather than staying at I
the Ritz-Hilton.
Camping under the stars
elicits images of clear cool
nights, stars shining down
brilliantly from the heavens and
happy campers enjoying an
ambience of comfort, serenity
and camaraderie.
That my friends, is a fantasy.
There was a short period of
time when I believed that
camping was for everyone. Now ELL
I know better. Camping is like a Tod
heaping plateful of Brussels
Sprouts you either love it or
hate it. There is no middle ground.
More likely, the unadulterated truth is
that camping can aptly be described as an
adventure, if not a full-fledged disaster in
some instances. Camping is definitely not
a one-size fits all type of activity. Some of
us'who appreciate the finer things in life
such as dry clothes, insect-free eating and
life-sustaining temperatures have
improvised to create our own reality when
thrown into the great wilderness. We also
appreciate bathrooms with hot showers
and flushing toilets, or any toilets for that
matter. Running water such as puddles on
the ground do not qualify.
When tenting, the trials of camping on
a rocky slope are only surpassed by
camping at the bottom of the slope in
the rain. There is some unwritten rule that


adventure and fantasy


E
ic


the likelihood of rain is inversely
proportionate to the water repellant rating
of the tent. Not a pretty sight.
And if winter camping in the elements
is appealing to anyone, although I've not
actually ever known such a person, do
them a favor and take them aside and
discuss cold weather survival skills.
Make sure you mention that whenever
possible, they should place their.tent in a
location that will catch the sunrise in the
morning, thus aiding
in melting off any ice
..A. or frost that may
have formed during
.^ the night, and that
includes the ice
S crystals between
their toes.
S But for some
A. Daniel Boones out
M%' there, no problem.
They appreciate
roughing it in the
wild, and the more
primitive the
camping and
;N BOUKARI challenging the
ay Columnist conditions, the
better. Poor souls,
hopefully they will


come to their senses before frostbite
entirely consumes them.
For the rest of us, all it takes is a little
rain storm to have a major disaster on our
hands as we watch our belongings fill
with mud and water, some floating away
beyond sight. Or worse yet, as we realize
it really is as cold as we feel, and that's not
water, but a freezing layer of ice. Nothing
is quite as effective at putting the kibosh
on a campout as a pair of frozen Fruit-of-
the-Looms.
While some diehard campers may
scoff at the amenities some of us insist
upon, I have never known a fellow
camper to turn down a hot unburned meal
and a cushy chair in pursuit of the "real
camping experience." Much like the
children who camp out in the backyard


and make it-until around 1 a.m. before
sneaking back inside the house, most
humans gravitate toward pleasure and
away from pain.
And yes, camping can be quite a pain.
Try getting up in the morning after
sleeping all night on the ground with only
a lumpy sleeping bag and something
loosely resembling an air mattress
between you and what feels like the rock
of Gibraltar underneath.
And don't forget the "uninvited
camper" the multi-winged and multi-
legged insects that are simply beyond
rational identification. These are not the
typically pestiferous but docile Florida
love bugs. These Machiavellian pests
aren't satisfied with windshields and
bumpers, these guys are eclectic,
preferring pockets, as in your shirt, doing
the backstroke in your drink, and lying in
wait when you open the flap to the tent or
the door to your camper.
Bugs are by nature quite conniving,
changing their appearance at will, from
large to small, from flat to round, and
always flexible enough to winnow their
way through even the smallest scale
screening. I generally tend to ignore them,
but have yet to be comfortable with
crunchy applesauce.
Don't get me wrong, camping can be
fun. It doesn't have to take place in a
remote Tibetan village with only a lean-
to, a can of Spam and a Sherpa guide to
qualify as a bona fide camping
experience. When accompanied with the
appropriate diligence to detail, comfort
and provision, camping can be the
ultimate holiday experience for all the
family, not quite a fantasy, but an
adventure nonetheless.

The Florida Department of
Transportation. District Two joining
with the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration and local law
enforcement agencies is proud to
announce the "Click It or Ticket"
Florida campaign The primary goal
for this campaign is to sale lives bN
getting motorists to buckle up. When
Nou are dri\ ing \wear sour safety' belt
and make sure that your passengers
are buckled up.
Encourage every one ou know to
wear a safety belt. The cost of
unbuckled drivers and passengers
goes beyond those killed and the loss
to their families. We all pa) for those
who don't buckle up in higher
taxes, higher health care .and higher
insurance costs.
The Click It or Ticket effort
surrounds one the nation's deadliest
holidays. Memorial Da\ i\eekend.
During the 2006 Memorial Holida.
weekend. nearly three dozen
Floridians were killed in motor
\ hicle crashes across our state.
Research has shown that buckling
up is the single most effective \wa. to
protect motorists and reduce fatalities
in vehicle crashes. Motorists need to
understand that no matter the make or
model of your vehicle you are not
protected in a crash muless you are
using your safety, belt. Unrestrained
occupants often increase the seerits


of injuries to other passengers in a
crash.
Buckling up saves lies. Please
fasten your safety belt e'ery trip,

DEVELOPMENT:
Continued from page A I

Lackey said part of the reason
why the development has been
delayed is because there needed
to be testing of water and sewer
capacity on the property where
the project would be built. Even
with the delays Lackey is ready to
move on to the next step.
"We're ready to roll. We're in
town and inside city limits," said
Lackey.
When the development was
first proposed there was talk that
the project would bring a new
Publix supermarket along with a
movie theater. Lackey said there
were still plans that a Publix or
another grocery chain would
eventually locate on the High
Springs property. He added that
medical facilities would be
located on the development to


lay bring fast food chain Confederate Memorial


accommodate the needs of senior
residents in the area along with
residents in surrounding areas.
Lackey said there was also a
possibility that a fast food
restaurant would locate at the
Santa Fe River Village
development. He added that
owners of a Chinese restaurant
that would include a full scale
dining buffet have interest in
locating inside the development.
Lackey feels enthusiastic
about how the Commission will
look at the project. Lackey said
he's enthused because the
development would be geared
specifically for the elderly and
that all shops would be conducive
to senior citizens. He said the
development would have no
impact on schools in the area and


that there would not be much
traffic on adjacent roads because
senior residents usually walk or
use other forms of transportation
to go to places.
Lackey said High Springs and
its residents will reap the benefits
of the new development.
"We feel this would be a
benefit for the entire community,"
said Lackey.
In other news City
Commissioners will look at the
finalization of extending the due
date of utility payments from the
10th of each month to the 15th.

Area senior citizens learn



to stay safe


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS As people move into their
golden years and become senior citizens, they
may find themselves the target of fraud and
scams. However, the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office will be organizing an event on Thursday in
High Springs to educate senior citizens about
safety tips important to the senior population.
According to Alachua County Sheriff's Art
Forgey, who specializes in crimes committed
against the elderly, the event will be geared
toward the senior citizen population in the area.
Forgey said the purpose of the event is to try to
make the senior population more conscious about
their surroundings. He mentioned the elderly are
often vulnerable to crimes and preyed upon by
criminals.
One crime that the elderly are frequently
victims of is scams involving money, often from
so-called telemarketing finns. In a recent article
published by the New York Times many senior

citizens from around the United States are getting
phone calls from telemarketers to invest in
certain products, and seniors willingly give these
telemarketers access to their banking accounts.
The article cited that many people had nothing
left in their bank accounts after giving the person
on the other end of the line personal banking
information.
Forgey said senior citizens are vulnerable to
these scams and being taken advantage of. He
said crimes involving phone scams are a
challenge to law enforcement agencies.
"Those crimes are hard'to work and
prosecute," said Forgey.
Forgey said Thursday's event will have a
presentation along with handouts on safety
issues. He said a broad range of issues will be
discussed from avoiding scams to personal safety.
The event will start at 1 p.m. at the First
United Methodist Church of High Springs
located at 17405 NW'U.S. Highway 441.

Brooks era

E Santa Fe faces to
Suwannee in spring game

By MIKE DAROZA
Today Sports Writer
LIVE OAK Despite a formidable
defensive showing, the Santa Fe Raiders let
their generosity get the best of them.
The Raiders coughed up three first-half
turnovers and another one on the opening
drive of the third quarter, allowing an
opportunistic Suwannee County Bulldogs
team to notch a 34-12
home victory in the
spring game last Friday
night.
"We wanted so badly
to get off on a good foot
this spring," said first-
year Santa Fe head coach
Brooks Bart Brooks.
"I thought our defense
played extremely well, and were getting
after it. But, our offense was kind of out of
sync for most of the game tonight."
Brooks was undoubtedly referring to the
fact that the Raiders' defense allowed only
one first down in the first quarter and a half
- and that was on the first play from
scrimmage but kept giving the ball away.
Santa Fe's third turnover with 6:42
remaining in the first half set up a 10-play,
62-yard scoring drive for the host Bulldogs.
Actually, it was a key 17-yard run on a
fourth-and-6 play by Jarret Yullee that put

Panthers and Bobcats to tangle in Friday's


*Newberry to face
Buchholz at Citizens'
Field at 7 p.m.,
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
NEWBERRY There's no mistake
about which high school football team
speedy running back Antwan Ivey plays
for.
The 5-foot-7, 175-pound Ivey amassed
1,820 rushing yards and earned Class 2B
first-team all-state honors last fall as he
led Newberry to a 6-5 record and the
school's first regional-playoff


appearance in four seasons.
But in case Ivey's teammates have
forgotten whom the Panthers play in
Friday's spring game, he wore a constant
reminder underneath his pads. In what
Newberry head coach Tommy Keeler
said was ajoke more than anything, Ivey,
a rising senior, sported a black and gold
Buchholz t-shirt during Tuesday's
practice.
"I just wear it to remind me who we're
playing and who we've got to beat," said
Ivey, who got the shirt from a friend. "I
know we have a tough game coming up
and I know every day I have to work
hard, I wear it just to work hard."


Ivey said that wearing the shirt during
the final week of spring practice served
as motivation leading up to Newberry's 7
p.m. spring jamboree
against Buchholz at

It's a tragedy that has
rocked an entire community.
Cell phones were ringing
during the early hours of the
morning on Saturday
delivering the news that
nobody wanted to hear.
Dante Anderson, a
standout basketball player at
Eastside High School, was
killed in a car accident on
SW 13th Street in
Gainesville at approximately
3 a.m. A fellow student also
died in the crash along with
two others being injured.
Anderson was just
wrapping up his junior year
at Eastside and was looking
forward to what would have
been a promising senior'
season. The 6-foot-4 guard
was being looked at by about
every major Division-I
university and had plans to
travel the country and
overseas this summer to
participate in several
showcases.
Every head boys
basketball coach in
Gainesville learned of the
news prior to 7 a.m. on
Saturday as the tragic word
flooded the basketball
community. Only one word
could describe the feeling
that overcomes an individual
when they are delivered with
such a devastating blow -
shock.
How could an athlete, a
person with such promise for
the future be taken from this
earth?
What do you say to the
friends, the family of Dante
Anderson? No words or
Hallmark card can stop their

DENNIS:

located in Florida. Instead he
opted for Nebraska to be re-
united with close friend and
former Raider teammate Deva
Knighten, who just completed
his first year at Midland
Lutheran.
"He is a big factor why I went
there," said Dennis of Knighten,
whom he considers a brother.
"Before' he went there, I was
really concentrating on staying in
Florida."
Dennis admitted the cold
weather will take some getting
used to, but he has participated in
various Amateur Athletic Union
(AAU) meets throughout the
country that have taken place
during different weather
conditions.
Dennis will be on the indoor as
well as on the outdoor track and
field teams for the Warriors and
also said he plans on majoring in
Pharmacy.
As a Raider, Dennis qualified
for the Class 2A state meet in the
110 and the 300-meter hurdles as

a junior, but was unable to
participate after breaking his
collarbone a few days before the
state meet. This spring, he
returned to the state meet in the
300-meter hurdles and finished
seventh with a time of 40.69.
Santa Fe head coach Tommie
Turner sees a bright future for
Dennis at the college level.
"He has got a lot of potential.
He is a decathlete and he can do
a lot of things, he can long jump,
high jump, triple jump, he is a
multi-event person. He can offer
a lot to that team," said Turner,
who just completed his 20th
season as the Raiders cross
country and track and field
coach. "I only used him in a
couple of events, he could have
done a lot of things for us. We are
only limited to four things he can
do, but he can do a lot for them,
he is a great kid."
Turner also knows it is not
going to be. easy to replace
Dennis, who is the first male
athlete under Turner to sign a
track and field only scholarship.
"He is going to be a big loss, it
is going to be hard to find a
hurdler,'' said Turner. "Anytime I
see a student get a scholarship to
further their education, that's a
good day for me, that's what


education and being involved in
athletics is all about."
While the injuries Dennis has
suffered through the years have
definitely been a challenge, he
said track and field has been a
part of him and that he couldn't
let it go. Now he just has to
continue his determination of not
being stopped for the next four
years at the college level.
"This was fun, this is what


we've been working for to get
this scholarship and now we've
got it," Dennis said. "My mom
introduced me to track when I
was seven or eight years old. I
was playing football, baseball
and basketball at the time and
then she introduced me to track
and I loved it the most."

RAIDERS:

Suwannee at the Raiders' 30-
yard line.
Three plays later, Alex
Woodson bulled into the end
zone from three yards out to
give the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead
with just 2:09 left in the half.
Santa Fe, aided with a little
help from roughing the
quarterback and pass
interference penalties, managed
to move all the way to the
Suwannee 9 yard line, but the
clock ran out on the second
quarter before the Raiders
could capitalize.
On the second play of the
third .quarter, Santa Fe
quarterback Leon Williams
rolled to his right and tossed an
interception to Bulldogs
linebacker Justin Starling at the
Raider 37 yard line.
Williams was, able to track
down Starling at the Santa Fe 6
yard line before he could reach
pay-dirt, but only prolonged the
inevitable, as Suwannee
quarterback Nick Bracewell
took just three plays to connect
with John Hill on a post route
for another Bulldogs' score to
make it 13-0 with 9:34 showing
in the third quarter.
After trading possessions,
Suwannee would score two
more times in the third, one
coming on another Bracewell-
to-Hill connection from 33-
yards away, and the other
coming on a 71-yard sprint
down the right sideline to give
the Bulldogs a commanding,
27-0 lead.
Santa Fe's offense finally got
on track late in the third quarter,
as Jamal White zigzagged his
way 47 yards for a score, but
the blocked extra point kick left
the Raiders trailing, 27-6.

A predetermined switch in
the fourth quarter put back-up
players from both teams on the
field.
As a result, Santa Fe
quarterback Lane Presnell
scampered for a 16-yard keeper
to cut Suwannee's lead to 27-
12, but the Bulldogs' Alex
Fountain answered with a 54-
yard touchdown run for the
final, 34-12, tally.
Afterward, Brooks carried
mixed feelings as he trotted off
the field for the first time as the
Raiders' head coach.
"Defensively, we wanted to
come out and block and tackle
well tonight, and I felt we did
that," Brooks said.
"I felt we read our keys well,
and got off our blocks. We can
win with that kind of defenses
"But, we have got to get
stronger offensively. We had
some good drives, but sort of
got pushed around up front, and
had trouble holding on to the
ball.
"If we can get that side of the
ball cleared up, I think we can
surprise some people [this
coming season]."
Brooks and Santa Fe will
officially close their spring on
Friday night in the Red-Grey
intra-squad game at Raider
Field.
"We'll take a lot from tonight
and prepare to end the spring on
a good note in the Red-Grey
game," Brooks said.
"The kids are responding
well [to his first year as head
coach]. They've all worked
extra hard and the attitude has
been great. We'll see if we can
carry some momentum into the
summer and get back after it in
the fall."

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2007 B5


A t





Four weeks ago Bob
Sheppard made one of the
biggest announcements of his
:storied 4,500 game career
.behind the public-address
microphone at the big ball
orchard in the Bronx.
"Ladies and gentlemen," the
legendary "voice of God"
intoned. "Please turn your
attention to the owner's box
behind home plate."
Even though most of the
packed Yankee Stadium crowd
couldn't see the box, the face
that lit onto the screen was one
of the biggest surprises this
circus of a ball club had had in
several weeks. On the screen
was Roger Clemens. He was to
be the team's savior.
"Well, they came and got
me out of Texas, and I can tell
you it's a privilege to be back,"
Clemens said, as the sell-out
crowd went bonkers. "I'll be
talking' to ya'll soon."
At the time, the Yankees.

behind the dreaded Red Sox,

grieving, nor can they bring
Dante back.
What a treasurer Dante was
*to have in our own backyard.
He had been picked among the
'top basketball prospects, if not
the top in the entire state of
.Florida for next year. He was a
member of the 2006 Eastside
state championship team and
was named the. Final Four
MVP. He was named to the
first team all-state in Class 5A
last season. And the best part
*was that he was going to be
back for one more year.
. But now, the reality is he
-won't be back at all. We're all
Left to wonder what if?
It's events like this that offer
us moments of reflection and
,appreciation. Life is too short


and-away series. Boston was in
the running for Clemens'
services, as were the Houston
Astros, but in the end it was
George Steinbrenner's pro-
rated $28 million contract that
did the job.
It was a classic
Steinbrenner-era moment. The
day before the announcement,
the Yankees were hardly
mentioned in sports pages
across America. That day,
Cinco de Mayo, belonged to the
Kentucky Derby (which
welcomed the Queen of
England), and Oscar De La
Hoya and Floyd Mayweather.
The lack of attention must have
been eating him up, but in
further proof that Steinbrenner
has mellowed in old age, he
waited until the next day to steal
back the spotlight.
Just as interesting to note
was the Boss' willingness to
bend over backward for
Clemens. Steinbrenner was so
eager to land the Rocket, he of
seven Cy Young awards, two
World Series rings, 348 wins
and a .662 lifetime winning
percentage, that he was willing

as it is. Our lives on earth are
not even a drop in the bucket in
the grand scheme of time.
We always see a tomorrow,
because it's our nature. There's
always going to be. another
game, another quarter, another
shot. For an athlete as unique
as Dante you had to believe that
he had hundreds of more games
in his future.
A flower-laden memorial
marks the sight of the
heartrending accident. Eastside
High School was in emotional
arid spiritual shambles on
Monday. The unexpected has a
way of doing that.
We must cherish every
moment we have and every
person we meet because our
time here is too limited to sweat
the small things. Dante
reminds us that even those who

to loosen his rules.
Steinbrenner, who won't allow
long hair or beards on his
players, is allowing Clemens to
skip road trips when he isn't
scheduled to pitch. This
unheard of arrangement first
agreed to by the Houston Astros
- shows just how strong
Steinbrenner's desire is to beat
the Red Sox, but it has brought
into question Clemens' desire as
a ballplayer.
"I can't imagine doing that,"
future Hall-of-Famer Greg
Maddux told the press when
asked about Clemens' deal. "I
like the game. I like the
atmosphere. I appreciate what it
has to offer. I want to play the
whole year."
Former Yankee hurler David
Wells, another one of the elder
statesmen of the league
expressed shock as well.
"That's not the Yankee
way," Wells said, incredulously.
"The Yankees have changed."

The pain is real and the loss is
undeniable right now for the
friends and family of Dante
Anderson. While the passing of
time will subside some of the
heartbreaking emotions,
basketball next fall will be a
sorrow reminder.
How good could Dante have
been? Would he have led his
team to another state
championship? Would he have
gone on to play college ball and
be named MVP of the NCAA
Final Four? What about the
NBA?
The sad truth is we'll never

be guessing I'm getting the ball every time
or a lot, which I probably will. But I think if
they key on me too much we have talented
players on our team that can make big plays
also."
Keeler said that the first half of Friday's
contest will feature the starting units of
each club, while the third quarter will be a
blend of first, second and third-team
players. The junior varsity squads are slated
to take the field for the fourth quarter.
Newberry is expected to operate out of
the double slot formation, while mixing in
some plays out of the I-formation on
offense, while playing a 4-3 defense. The
Panthers lost 12 seniors from last year's


club, but return a majority of its personnel
including linebacker Benny Hadley, a Class
2B honorable mention all-state pick last
fall.
"We are playing Buchholz, we
never played them before and
they are a big, tough, physical 'We
team and we are hoping to get Buchh
out of there without getting never
steam rolled," said Keeler, who before
is preparing for his third season are a
at Newberry in the fall. "When physic
you play a big, strong, physical we are
team your biggest fear as a coach et oL
is that you can't stop their gt
offense. They just pound it and witho
pound it and we have to be steam
concerned with that."
Another concern for Newberry
is injuries as Keeler said five
players, including three starters,
are hurt and might not be cleared to play on
Friday.
"We are beat up," said the coach. "I think
we've been hitting each other and I think
we're tired, it is the end of the school year."
Both the Newberry players and coaching
staff are looking forward to Friday's game,
which will bring an end to its month-long


spring session.
"This spring has been fun, but it's also

said Ivey, who compiled 2,650 all purpose


are playing
iolz, we
played them
e and they
big, tough,
:al team and
e hoping to

Tommy Keeler
Newberry coach


yards and also found his
way into the end zone 28
times last fall. "We're
just going to play our
game and we're hoping
that we can compete and
show our younger guys
what it's like to work
hard and play in a big
game and get ready, for
next year."
As for the size of the
crowd for Friday night,
Keeler is hoping for a
huge turnout for what
could be the Panthers'
one and only shot to play


at Citizens Field.
"A lot of people are talking about the
game at school and in the community," said
Keeler. "I'm hoping to have a lot of people
there."

FHSAA:
Continued from page Bl
An anonymous selection
committee of representatives
from the sports community
reviews all nominations and
selects the winners. There may
be one winner from each of the
four sections in all seven
classifications; the overall
winner in each classification
shall be chosen from the section
winners.
The Raiders received the
honor as the Class 4A, Section-
2 winner and was then picked as


the overall Class 4A recipient.
"We have a student athletic
policy that specifically
addresses sportsmanship. We
want [student athletes] to know
that we hold them to a higher
level of accountability than the
average student," leveled Santa
Fe athletic director Michele
Faulk. "They do represent not
only the school, but the
community.
"We hand out flyers at
booster club meetings that
addresses the spirit of the fans,
meaning always remember that

the athlete you're cheering or
yelling at is also someone else's
son or daughter. Keep that in
mind when you're cheering, be
it for the opponent or our team."
Herschleb echoed those
thoughts and says that
while the recognition was
unexpected, sportsmanship
is of primary focus for the
Raider athletic program.
"I really never
anticipated it would result
in the statewide
Far
recognition. We go to
great lengths to emphasize
the important role that
sportsmanship plays. As with
most high schools, most of our
athletes will never go on to play
competitive athletics but every
one of them will take the
lessons they have learned on the
courts or playing fields and
apply those lessons to their
everyday lives."
The award was named after
FHSAA commissioner
Emeritus Fred E. Rozelle who
served as the Association's
executive secretary and
commissioner from 1980-1991.
State Farm became the title
sponsor for the award beginning
the 2005-06 school year.


ul


In addition to the
acknowledgement statewide,
the Raiders will also be
receiving a check for their
sportsmanship efforts. The
section winners will each
receive $500 and a
commemorative
plaque. The overall
winners will each
receive an
additional $2,500
and a larger plaque.
"It recognizes the
lk
very thing that we
as coaches try to
promote within our programs
and our kids," said Faulk. "You
want your coaches, your fans,
your kids to always show good
sportsmanship, to be
competitive, but to always
remember the spirit of
competition.
"We always stress to our
coaches to stress to fans, players
and coaches to represent us in a
positive way no matter what.
Does this mean that we are
perfect? Absolutely not. Does
it mean that we are striving to
be perfect? Absolutely."

City of Alachua
Request for Qualifications
RFQ 2007-02
Administrator-Alachua
Cares Program

The City of Alachua Florida is
requesting qualifications from
local not-for-profit
organizations/agencies to
function as Administrator of the
"Alachua Cares" program.
"Alachua Cares" is a volunteer
program in which the City of
Alachua will collect contributions
from its utility customers and
employees. These voluntary
contributions will be used to
supplement City of Alachua
citizens who may be in need of
emergency assistance with
energy-related expenses, such
as electric, water and gas bills.

All contributions collected will be
disbursed at the end of each
month to an independent not-
for-profit agency who will
administer the program. The
Administrator of the program will
*determine who will receive
financial assistance. Preference
will be given to those citizens
who are at least 60 years of age
and/or to those who are


disabled and unable to be self-
sufficient. This assistance will be
limited to one time per calendar
year per house hold and must
meet specific standards to
qualify. Standards will be
developed by the administrator
to aid in the evaluation process.
Individuals must reside within
the Alachua city limits to receive
assistance from this program.
As Administrator of this
program, the selected
organization/agency will meet
with the individuals applying for
assistance at a location
convenient to the citizens of
Alachua. The location of the
administering organization/
agency would preferably be in
the City of Alachua. If the
administering organization/
agency is not located in the City
Of Alachua, the City will provide
a location to be used for meeting
with prospective citizens twice
per month on previously
established calendar dates.

The Administrator will be
required to send quarterly
financial statements pertaining
to the disbursement of the funds
received from the City to the City
Finance Director. The financial
statements will include amounts
disbursed and the name of the
utility that the funds were paid
to. The individuals names that
receive assistance will not be
required on these statements.


RFQ submissions will be due by
