Waldo's police chief leavingr

Smith taking new job at federal courthouse


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
WALDO It's not retirement that's
taking Waldo Police Chief A.W. Smith
away from the town dubbed by AAA Auto
Club as a "speed trap."
After 13 years as Waldo's top cop,
Smith is accepting a job in security at the
federal courthouse in downtown
Gainesville. Smith gave his notice to the
City of Waldo Monday.
"I anguished over this decision and it
brought me to tears when I turned in my


notice," Smith said.
Smith has always defended ticketing
practices in Waldo, a small town of less
than 1,000 people in 350 homes. After
years of complaints from AAA Auto Club,
the group finally purchased space on a
billboard warning motorists that Waldo was
a speed trap. Waldo and Lawtey, a small
town in Bradford County, also on U.S.
Highway 301, were the only two towns
called out as speed traps by AAA Auto
Club.
The billboard may have warned
motorists about Waldo, but it didn't change


the way Smith and his team of six officers
handed out tickets.
"Ninety-nine percent of the citations we
issue are to speeders traveling at 15 mph or
more over the speed limit.
"The judge would laugh us out of the
courtroom if we were issuing citations for
six mph over," Smith said"
And Smith may have good reason to
boast statistics with some 40,000 vehicles a
day traveling through the small to\\ n.
"It's been about 10 years since we had a
traffic fatality inside the city limits of Waldo.

Sexual predators



law still on hold



in Newberry


-By DAN REID
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY- Even after
several City Commission
meetings and numerous
discussions the Newberry City
Commission still has not
enacted a law that would d
require registered sexual
predators or offenders who
move to Newberry to notify
City officials of their new


address.
The Commission voted
unanimously on Monday to
table the issue until their next
meeting in July.
Commissioners cited
expanding the radius for sexual
predators from 1,000 to 1,500
feet as a reason to delay a vote
on the matter. However, the
radius for sexual offenders

Adjacent to the Food Lion Shopping Plaza is a rapidly developing three-phase residential neighborhood to be known as
Baywood.


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Each day, thousands of motorists driving
through Alachua pass a development on the north side of U.S.
Highway 441 adjacent to Food Lion. Few know what the
development is.
The property being developed is owned by Alachua
Development, LLC and the project is a 228-home subdivision.
But the neighborhood, named "Baywood," didn't skip over


planning and permitting and it didn't crop up overnight. The
preliminary plat for Baywood was seen and approved by Alachua
commissioners in December 2005.
Encompassing 61.69 acres anchored behind Food Lion,
Baywood wraps around the shopping center with access along
U.S. 441. Today, construction crews are installing the
infrastructure and w ill begin building phase one of the project
which received approval by commissioners earlier this year.

GAINESVILLE The
recent series of rain Alachua
County has experienced has led
to county officials lifting the
bum ban that was in effect in
the area.
According to Alachua
County Fire Rescue
spokesperson Megan Crandall
the ban was lifted because
conditions in the county
improved courtesy of the daily
downpours. Crandall added
Alachua County Fire Chief
Will May felt the time was right


to lift the ban because the
typical summer weather pattern
that includes substantial rain is
here to stay in Alachua County.
Crandall said anyone who
wants to bum debris, in their
yards are recommended to
contact the Division of Forestry
before burning. She advises
residents to be careful and use
common sense when burning.
Crandall said if a bur ban
goes into effect again it will be
only if conditions warrant it.

Having a jugglers bring
l daughter to High
Springs children


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS The High Springs library
is usually a quiet place where people are looking
to read and relax. However on Tuesday the
library was filled with laughter as area children
enjoyed a juggling show at the High Springs
branch.
The show starred "Magic Mike" Stillwell and
John Creveling of Gainesville. Both Stillwell
and Crevling showcased their juggling talents by
performing a wide array of stunts and tricks. The
jugglers entertained the children by juggling as
many as five balls at a time and tossing bowling
pins, while children laughed in amazement.
The jugglers also used rings to entertain the
children along with using a half dozen knives as
part of the act. Children got in on the fun as they
went on stage and participated with the jugglers.
The excited youngsters watched as Stillwell and

Hubert Williams.


Today Staff Report
Getting arrested has never been as fun as
when it is for the Muscular Dystrophy
Association (MDA). Dozens of area leaders,
residents and business people were threatened
with arrest by ERA Trend Realty's "Judge"
Joan Williams. But it was all in the name of
raising funds for MDA.. In all, Williams said
about 10 people were arrested, many others
purchased "Get out ofjail" cards and a handful
are still wanted. The event netted the MDA


around $3,000 Williams said.
The ERA Trend Realty staff including
Williams, Linda Rice Chapman, Hubert
Williams, Darya Mallard and Juanita Carter
along with assistance from others hosted the
event at their offices in High Springs on
Thursday.
"We really had a lot of fun with this
fundraiser and we're planning on holding
another next year," said Williams.

Ask Your Dentist by Douglas M.
Adel, D.D,S,

Occlusion


Q: What is occlusion?
A: Occlusion, pronounced
o-CLUE-zhon, is the term
used to describe bite, the way
your teeth meet when your
jaws close. Good occlusion is
essential to chewing. In proper
occlusion, your upper front
teeth should slightly overlap
the lowers and the biting edges
of the lowers should lightly
touch the back surfaces of the
uppers. Your back teeth, the
molars ad premolars, should
meet evenly. The chewing
surfaces of the lower teeth
should be just inside the
uppers, so that the cusps the
points on a tooth match with
the teeth's central grooves.


Also, the lower molars and
premolars should be just a
little forward of the
corresponding upper teeth.
Any form of faulty
occlusion is called
malocclusion. Some bit
problems can be addressed
with orthodontic treatment.
Your dentist will most likely
need to make a plaster model
of your teeth. Your dentist will
make the model from
impressions created by
pressing a U-shaped tray filled
with a soft paste over the teeth
of your upper and lower jaw.
From those impressions, a plan
can be made to correct the bite.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2007 A5


Behold the Throne


As Christians, we are to be
educating ourselves so that we
better understand the doctrines of
our Faith. One of the purposes
for which the Holy Ghost was
given to the Church was to help
us grow and mature as witnesses
of Christ. To help us in our
journey we can look at the last
book of the New Testament, The
Revelation of Saint John the
Divine.
Curiosity has always
surrounded the Book of
Revelation. Countless theories
have attempted to tie its
symbolism to events happening
around us today. It can lead a
fanatical reader into a game of
finding hidden objects in a
picture, seemingly difficult to
understand. The problem occurs
when the reader has painted the
backdrop into something
significant for the 21st Century
and then tries to find where the
secret images fit in it. We all
have seen the pictures with
objects hidden in them in


children's magazines, e.g., a fish
hidden in the branches of a tree,
or maybe a bicycle hidden in a
cloud, and become aware that the
picture was not so
plain after all. It may
take an adult to point
out the hard to find
objects; of course, in
their wise old age,
adults are well .
trained in looking for
the abstract, where a
child wouldn't
expect to see the
illogical. .
The Book of
Revelation (and The Ven.,
sometimes the entire Leasure
Old and New All Saints
Testament) is treated Church, C
like these pictures. A parish
People read the Book Christian
intending to find the Church
secret objects, the
little details, which will suddenly
expose the hidden plan of God.
But we should not read the
Scriptures with this type of


expectation. The object of
Scriptural interpretation is not a
search for the unique. If you find
something in the Scriptures
which "no one has
S seen before" you
have most likely
just drifted into
serious error (and
r t someone, no doubt,
has committed the
same error before).
Revelation,
,J. Chapter 4, has one

beautifully painted
picture, full of
details, but the
details are meant to
draw the eye to the
larger picture.
Many portraits are
painted, such as the
Last Supper, with
all of the details
drawing your eyes


John's vision is dramatic, as it
describes the sanctum Sanctorum
of Heaven-the holy of holies.
To draw a picture from this
Chapter, you would begin the
picture with a circle in the center
of your paper representing the
Throne, around that circle you
would draw three more circles
representing the glorious beauty
surrounding the throne, and
around that another circle
representing the cherubim,
around that another circle
representing the 24 elders around
the throne, around that another
circle representing the many
angels, and around that another
circle representing the creatures
of the universe gathered around
the throne.
The fourth chapter of
Revelation does not present a


picture of heaven. It describes
the entire universe from the
aspect of heaven. The purpose of
the vision is to show us, in
beautiful symbolism, that all
things are governed by the Lord
on the throne. All things must
include our trials and
tribulations. That is the point.
That is why the description of the
throne comes before the
symbolic prediction of the trials
and tribulations which the
Church will experience on Earth.
The glorious Divine perspective
should comfort the people of
God, who are suffering terrible
persecution for their faith.
Behold a Throne. The throne
is the very center of the universe.
The universe of the Bible is not
geocentric-seen with the earth
at the center, or heliocentric-


seen with the sun as the center,
but rather Theocentric-having
God as the center. This is the true
philosophy of history. The
throne is in heaven. Nothing is
excluded from the dominion of
God. As Christians, we must be
reminded that there is a throne,
and it is not on Earth. We are
called to follow Christ, not to sit
and wait for heaven to descend
upon us. Christians must always
be mindful of the Theocentric
perspective, that the throne
overrules all of life and history.
There will always be things we
will never fully understand, such
as the mystery of the Incarnation,
the Trinity, the Passion of Christ,
and the suffering which is part of
life. But let us be content to
behold the throne.

A6 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2007

SMITH: Officer Mike Szabo will serve as interim
Continued from page Al


"I think we're saving some lives and I
consider our officers the enforcers of the
laws of the State of Florida," said Smith.
Situated in northeastern Alachua
County on U.S. Highway 301, a
designated truck route, Waldo has long
been characterized as a speed trap.
AAA Auto Club's designation of
Waldo as a speed trap brought massive
media attention. Smith and
representatives of the Auto Club appeared
on national news channels to argue their
points as millions of viewers watched.


In all, Smith said he and his six
officers issue 13 to 17 citations daily
which sets the annual tally at roughly
5,000. But Smith doesn't think his
departure as the chief will result in a
significant change in ticketing practices.
"I believe the direction that the
officers here will take is if you're out
there flagrantly violating the laws, you're
going to see blue lights," said Smith.
But exactly what will happen with
Smith's position is unknown. "I leave the
future of the department to the town


counsel," Smith sad.
Officer Mike Szabo will stand in as
the interim chief following Smith's
resignation which is effective July 6.
Hired in April 1994 as Waldo's chief,
Smith had retired from the Gainesville
Police Department. Now, he finds
himself heading back to Gainesville for
work. The Waldo Police Chief said he
was looking forward to getting out of the
management end.
"Since I won't be in management, I
think it's going to a big stress relief."


Tammy Smith, A.W. Smith's wife and
a paralegal in Gainesville, is supportive of
her husband's decision although she has
mixed emotions.
Smith's new job is likely less risky
which may be a plus for the couple,
whose son, Richard Michael-Wayne
Westfall is currently serving in the U.S.
Army in Hanau, Germany.
Over the last 13 years, Smith has
made many friends in Waldo.
"It's like I'm leaving a part of my
family behind.


"I enjoyed going to the school and
sitting in on classes and reading to the
students.
"The kids don't call me 'Chief,' they
call me 'A.W.' and that's what I want.
"I loved visiting with the ladies at the
community center.
"This is a wonderful community and I
won't forget the many friends I've made
here," Smith said.


NEWBERRY: C

would remain at 1,000 feet.
Newberry Commissioner
Bill Conrad said on Wednesday
morning that Newberry needs to
carefully craft a map where
sexual predators or offenders
could live so the City doesn't
face legal battles.
"We want to make sure we
don't cover every part of
Newberry. It would be illegal,"
said Conrad.
Conrad said he agreed with
the Commission to beef up the
ordinance and expanding the
radius for sexual predators so
the safety of children could be
ensured in the community. The
Commissioner said he's read
numerous studies that prove a
sexual predator does not
recover after spending time in
jail and therapy, and said the
recidivism rate is high for
sexual predators. Conrad said
being labeled as a sexual
predator is stuck to a person's
identity.
"It's sad, but that's the way
it is," said Conrad.


onrad: Sexual predators and offenders will be scrutinized


Conrad is hopeful that the
ordinance will be effective in
keeping track of sexual
predators and offenders.
Currently, registered sexual
predators or offenders who
move into Alachua County are
required to notify County
officials when moving to a new
address.
Newberry Commissioner
Joe Hoffman said after
Monday's Commission meeting
that he appreciated the
Commission's decision to
widen the scope of radius for
sexual predators. Hoffman said
if he had it his way the
ordinance would cover the
entire area of Newberry.
"I'd make a big circle
around the city," said Hoffman.
Previously Hoffman has
said the issue of sexual
predators moving into
Newberry is a major concern
among residents since the area
is fast becoming a growing
community with a significant
number of families with young


children moving to Newberry.
As an area little league coach
Hoffman often hears parents
voice their concerns about their
children's safety.
When the ordinance was
first discussed among
Commissioners in May, the
issue was tabled for the June 11
meeting citing concerns about
certain items and language in
the proposed ordinance.
Newberry is not the only
city in the area that is trying to
implement a law regarding
sexual predators and offenders.
The City of High Springs is
looking to enact 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.
Last fall the City of
Gainesville passed an ordinance
which prohibits registered child
sexual offenders and predators
from living within 2,500 feet of
parks in the area.


Conrad said once the
ordinance is enacted sexual
predators and offenders will be
monitored very closely by


Newberry and its citizens.
"We're going to be watching
them extremely closely, and


their neighbors will be watching
too," said Conrad.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2007 1 A7


-Special to Alachua County Today
The First United Methodist
Church of High Springs is proud
to announce that eight of its
members/attendees are recipients
of the 2007 Landrum Chew
Scholarships awards of $500
-each. Those receiving the awards
-Sunday, June 24, during church
,services, were Amie Buehler,
'Patricia Carr, Darin 'Erskine,
;Brandon Keys, Anji Lewis, Justin
;Odom, Mitchell Thomas, Jr., and
-Renee Patterson.
Landrum H. Chew was an


Bass looking forward to retirement


spent exclusively in High Springs. During the
span of over two decades in the department
Bass said he's seen it all in High Springs.
"I've seen the bad, the ugly, and the good,"
said Bass.
When Bass started with the police force
the department was headquartered inside a
tiny space at High Springs City Hall.
According to Bass the police department in
1985 had only four officers and one patrol car.
Today the department has 14 fulltime officers,
six reserve officers, and a fleet of police
vehicles.
Bass, who is Gilchrist County native, was
familiar with High.Springs when he first
started working with the police department.
Bass fondly recalls as a youngster he would go
with his friends to the local movie theater in
High Springs to attend a picture show and
going rabbit hunting at night.
Over the years Bass has seen many High
Springs Commissioners come and go and has
worked with several different city managers.
During his career Bass has served under two
police chiefs, former Chief Tom Wolfe and
current Chief of Police Ray Kaminskas. Bass
said both men brought positive impacts to the
department.
Bass described Wolfe as an old school
police officer that was the right fit for the High
Springs of 20 years ago. He recalls Wolfe as
being a mentor and guiding him during the
beginning of his tenure at the department.


Since becoming chief in 2003, Bass said
Kaminskas brought in modem technology to
the department by implementing computer
systems inside police cars and at the police
station.
During Kaminskas's first few months as
chief he relied heavily on Bass to get familiar
with the functions of the police department.
Bass said the most satisfying part of hisjob
is in helping keep High Springs safe.
"It's what's it is all about to help others,"
said Bass.
Bass recalls a convenience store robbery in
High Springs that occurred on November 22,
1989 where a clerk was seriously wounded
during the incident. During the weeks that
followed Bass dedicated all his efforts and
worked tirelessly in helping solve the crime.
Thanks to Bass's hard work the suspects were
caught, and the City of High Springs presented
him a commendation for his work on the case.
According to Bass another satisfying part
of his job is in mentoring and encouraging
other officers in the department. He said it's
an honor having a fellow officer look to him as
a father figure and ask him for advice on a
matter.
"I feel more or less like their dad," said
Bass.
High Springs Police Sergeant Gordon
Fulwood said Bass took him under his wing
when he first started at the department 12
years ago. Fulwood, who is the 2006 High


Springs Employee of the Year, said Bass has
been a huge influence on his career.
According to Fulwood, Bass's passion for
investigations encouraged him to direct his
career path toward investigations as well.
Fulwood said Bass has always looked out
for every officer on the High Springs police
force.
"He always been very encouraging and
has always tried his best to take care of us,"
said Fulwood.
Fulwood credits Bass for being patient
with him and helping maintain his focus as a
law enforcement officer. Fulwood described
Bass as having a calmness and steady presence
that he brings to the department He said he
and Bass have a close relationship outside of
work, frequently going to each others homes
during holidays.
Once Bass retires from the department he
plans on spending time gardening, boating,
and being around his family that includes three
grandchildren. In the comer of his office Bass
proudly displays a picture of his youngest
granddaughter, three-year-old Kenna.
"She's papa's girl," Bass said with a big
smile.
Bass said he has enjoyed his career with
the High Springs Police Department.
"I've had a good career and I have no
regrets," said Bass.


active member of the church for
57 years until his death in 2004.
He and his wife, Elizabeth, never
'had children, but had a great love
for them. According to his sister-
in-law, Frances Roberts, Landrum
felt his fellow church members
were his family and wanted to
leave an endowment to help
defray some of the costs
associated with obtaining a
college education for many future
generations of the church. His
kindness will be remembered
always.

A different summer


swooshing sound of a passing bicycle, or
the smart crack of a skateboard becoming
airborne and then nose-diving to the
pavement these are the sounds of
summer...and childhood.
Summer is a magical interlude that we all took for
granted when we were children. Through a child's
eyes, summer is that golden span of
time existing between the ending of one
school year and the beginning of j>'
another. Thoughts of the classroom are
quickly dismissed, and in the space of a V'
heartbeat, just as quickly replaced by
thoughts of summer fun.
What child doesn't dream about
summer? Rising early in the morning
with an ease that is never matched
throughout the remainder of the year,
except maybe on Christmas morning.
And that's as it should be, because a ..'
childhood ends much too soon, to be -A '
replaced by responsibilities and-worries ELLEN B(
about such everyday tedium as jobs, Today Co
paying bills, and an assortment of other
matters that seem important at the time.
But for some children, this summer is different.
Kelly is nine yearsold with dancing eyes. Her
golden brown hair hangs to her shoulders, framing her
freckled face and pink cheeks. She giggles like other
girls her age, talking girl-talk with her best friend and
laughing at silly knock-knock jokes.
But Kelly isn't having the best summer of her
young life.


Because this year, she is missing her very best
friend of all her little brother, Earl.
Just a few months ago at the tender age of nine,
Kelly struggled alongside her mother trying to put out
the flames that engulfed "Little Earl," burning over
40-percent of his body and nearly costing his life a
nightmare for Earl and his family. The sort of
nightmare that makes those adult problems of jobs and
money seem secondary.
I haven't met Little Earl, or Kelly's
mother or father for that matter. But I
have met Kelly, and have spent some time
with her. She is special.
S While her parents and father were at
S Little Earl's bedside during the early
." 'l stages of treatment that saved his life, first
at Shands and then in May to the Shriners
Bur Hospital in Cincinnati, Kelly stayed
with her best friend. She attended school
and did many of the typical things that
children her age enjoy playing video
4 games, watching the latest pre-teen
)UKARI television shows, biking and just being a
lumnist kid.
I had the pleasure of seeing Kelly
dashing through the waves at the beach,
and chasing crabs in the moonlight. Her shrieks of
laughter were as loud and her smile just as wide as
anyone else as she raced across the sand, splashing up
sand and salty spray. And her smile was just as wide
with excitement the next morning when she longingly
whispered that Earl was coming home in a matter of
days.
While summer is most certainly one of the


quintessential delights of childhood, this summer will
not be so for Kelly and Earl. And for these children
and their parents; life may never be the same again.,
For Little Earl, his journey is only beginning, as he
faces a long road to recovery. He will need assistance
with daily living activities until normal functions and
abilities are recovered. He is acutely susceptible to
infections and he faces many hours of physical
therapy. How unfortunate that this young child has
suffered in such a way.
But how fortunate that he lives in a community that
has opened its heart in offering a range of support from
financial assistance to childcare, to help with the
family's pets, to helping put the house in order and
much more that will never be known to most of us.
Alachua is truly a small town with a big heart, and this
community has demonstrated its caring nature in
helping this family during its time of need.
While this summer will not be filled with carefree
days for Earl and his family, with the continuing
support of a caring community, this young family can
look forward to the future when days will be brighter
and summer will mean what it should for Kelly and
her brother.
Donations to help Little Earl and his family can
made to the Earl Gardener III fund at SunState Federal
Credit Union in Alachua, 14520 NW US Hwy 441,
Alachua, FL 32615.

A message from the desk of



Sheriff Sadie Darnell'

Firpwnrks afePtv


It is extremely important to
know the difference between a
legal consumer firework and a
dangerous explosive device.
Items such as M-80s, M-100s
and blockbusters are not
fireworks, they are federally
banned explosives. They can
cause serious injury or even
death. Stay away from anything
that isn't clearly labeled with the
name of the item, the


manufacturer's name and
instructions for proper use. Here
are some more tips to help ensure
a safe Fourth of July:
Always read and follow label
directions.
Have an adult present.
Buy from reliable sellers.
Use outdoors only.
Always have water handy (a
garden hose and a bucket).
Never experiment or make
your own fireworks.


Light only one firework at a
time. '
Never re-light a "dud"
firework (wait 15 to 20 minutes
and then soak it in a bucket of
water).
Never give fireworks to
small children.
If necessary, store fireworks
in a cool, dry place.
Dispose of fireworks
properly by soaking them in
water and then disposing of them


in your trashcan.
Never throw or point
fireworks at other people.
Never carry fireworks in
your pocket.
Never shoot fireworks in
metal or glass containers.
The shooter should always
Wear eye protection and never
have any part of the body over
the firework.
Stay away from illegal
explosives.

Phases two and three
meanwhile, have not garnered
final plat approval from the
commission.
But Baywood is just one of
many housing developments on
the horizon around Alachua's
landscape. Other developments
include the recently opened
Savannah Station development
southwest of Alachua along
County Road 235. Ashwood
and Kingsland, two other
developments in close
proximity to Baywood, Alachua
Elementary and Mebane
Middle School, would fill in a
bit of undeveloped land in the
northern area of the city.
City officials bargained with
developers of Ashwood and
Kingsland to improve
conditions of infrastructure in
the areas they would be
building. Developers have
agreed to improve some of the
roads and extend sidewalks
where none currently exist.
Commissioners recently
approved the first of many steps
for a development at the
intersections of CR 235 and
235A that could account for
more than 400 homes. An even

After the show ended the
,children asked Stillwell and
SCreveling* a seemingly endless
number of questions about the
art of juggling.
Creveling has been juggling
professionally for 20 years and
said the biggest joy he gets
when he performs is seeing
children laugh. He admitted the
biggest challenge in juggling is
performing in rooms with low
ceilings, but added that dealing
with rowdy crowds sometimes
can be difficult as well.
SWhen he's not entertaining
people by juggling, Creveling is
a seventh grade Language Arts
teacher at North Marion Middle
School. Meanwhile, Stillwell
works fulltime in the fields of
:juggling and magic. Stillwell
first started displaying his
. talents 20 years ago while
working as a waiter, and has
performed at various
restaurants in Gainesville such
as Beef O'Brady's and Moe's.
Stillwell said the thing he
enjoys most about entertaining
is making adults feel like

A slew of other
developments are also
underway. In the

retail on the ground floor
and apartments or
condominiums on upper

The biggest challenge
according to Stillwell is to be

he tries to make the error look

Stillwell and Creveling first
met during a performance at the
University of Florida 20 years

juggling partners and have
brought joy to many people
since then. Creveling and
Stillwell give 15 to 20
performances a year at fairs,
libraries, schools, and private
parties. The shows are
concentrated mostly in North

performed as far away as New

New date set for Florida Folk Festival


Special to Alachua County Today
WHITE SPRINGS The Florida
Department of Environmental Protection's

55th Annual Florida Folk Festival.
Originally scheduled for May 25-27, the
three-day music and arts festival will take
place Veterans Day weekend, November 9 -
11,2007.
DEP recently cancelled the festival
'because of concerns for visitor safety due to
the uncertainty of approaching wildfires in
the area as well as air quality conditions from
the smoke. Only once before, in 1973
because of flooding of the Suwannee River,
has the festival been cancelled and
Rescheduled.
Since 1953, artists have come together
for one of the oldest state folk festivals in
America. The Florida Folk Festival,
Florida's premier heritage event, continues a
grand tradition of celebrating Florida's land,
people and diverse cultural heritage with
performances each day by Florida's greatest
folk artists.
"After surveying performers, artists,
vendors, and local and state partners; we
concluded that Veterans Day weekend is an


ideal time to reschedule the event," said DEP
Secretary Mike Sole. "We are confident that
this decision allows adequate, time for
planning, and we truly appreciate the
enthusiastic cooperation of our festival
partners and the Florida Department of State
to help secure thenew weekend date so
quickly."
"We are happy to have identified a new
date, and we anticipate the participation of
the 20,000 people that traditionally come
from within and outside Florida to celebrate
our cultural heritage," said DEP's Florida
State Parks Director Mike Bullock.
Plans for the new dates in November
include combining the festival with the
park's Rural Folklife Days events already
scheduled for the week prior to Veterans Day
weekend. For updated information please
call 1-877-635-3655. In addition, in the
coming months, the Florida Park Service will
be providing updated information on their
Web site at www.floridastateparks.org.
The Florida Folk Festival has remained
one of the Sunshine State's most popular
heritage events because of the wide. arict', If

Santa Fe flops at camp

memorable


first season

* Last season, Newberry
advanced to the regional
playoffs for the first
time since 1995
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
A lot has changed in just over a one-year
span for the Newberry High School girls
basketball team.
Last July, Scott Frisina
was hired as the Panthers'
third coach since the 2003-
04 season and he didn't
have the luxury of
working with what was his
new team at the time
during the summer before
the 2006-07 campaign
Frisina started.
Regardless, Frisina
guided Newberry to a 12-17 mark this past
winter, which included the school's first trip to
the regional playoffs since 1995. The Panthers
also won a regional quarterfinal game,
marking the program's first postseason victory
since 1994. Also included in Frisina's history-
making rookie year as Newberry's coach, was
a bit of adversity as well.
In December, Newberry had five players
suspended by the Florida High School
Athletic Association because of an incident
that occurred at Dixie County on
Dec. 11. In the games following, the
Panthers were limited. In fact, Newberry

boys basketball. The Raiders
attended the University of
Florida boys basketball Team
Camp this past weekend and
finished the three-day event


with just two wins and three
times as many losses.
"I'm not disappointed that we
only won two
games, it's
that we didn't
play as well
as I thought
we could
play," said
Santa Fe
head coach Harris
Elliot Harris.
"We competed in the large
varsity division and they had
some pretty good teams, but we


can still compete and go 100-
percent. We didn't play to our
potential. It's a bad thing, but
it's a good thing because we
know what we have to work
on."
The Raiders played teams
from across the state of Florida
as well as a pair of out of state
squads. Santa Fe found
difficulty in settling into its
offense many .times while
allowing opponents to rule the
boards on offense leading to
second chance shots. The

ALACHUA While spring practice
wrapped up weeks ago, there is still
plenty of football going on at Santa Fe
High School. Raider head coach Bart
Brooks has joined with Fort White,


Buchholz and Trenton to participate in
a seven-on-seven scrimmage every
week.
The scrimmage is focused primarily
on working with the skill position
players from each team -
quarterbacks, wide receivers,
defensive backs, etc.
"It's going pretty well. The kids are
learning how to compete against other


teams and the main reason to do it is to
get a chance to work on our offense
throughout the summer," said Brooks.
"We [coaches] figured we'd put
together something with area schools
and try to make a chance for these kids
to have some fun throughout the
summer."

Trouble in


MLB


By ADAM BOUKARI
Today Sports Columnist
It's no shock that the
ratings from the NBA Finals
were down this year: It was
expected as the San Antonio
Spurs swept the Cavaliers in
what was like watching a
slow-agonizing death. What
could be more boring than
this year's NBA Finals?
Major League Baseball.
It's just so boring. At some
point one would think there
would be some revamping of
the entire league to make it
more exciting. When you
play as many games as MLB
teams play, each game is
rather insignificant in the
grand scheme of things -
relatively speaking of course.
There's no excitement in
watching a team runaway
with an eight-point win in
nine long, long innings.
Plus, there's a new trade deal
every day it seems with
MLB. Keeping up with a
current roster is harder than
keeping up with who's ahead
in what division.
This is not an attempt to
offend baseball players or
coaches at all. Local
baseball is fun to watch. It
has its dull moments, but
that's natural with the speed
of the game. But, for the
most part, it's exciting to
watch.
The pros are a different
story altogether. Okay, this
can't continue without a shot
at the Yankees. Wow, look at
that huge payroll arid all the
results they're getting from
it. They're below .500.
When a business and
that's what pro baseball is -
puts that much money,

employees (players, coaches,
etc.) and the return is a sub-par
performance, there's a problem.
But, that has been the story
for years with the Yankees, it's
just the New York faithful have
been in denial. How could their
storied team, the most
legendary team in the history of
America's favorite pastime be
taking a downturn? It's not
possible. Wrong. It's
happening.
Every year it seems there's
another reason why the Yankees

are having woes. One year it's
a fluke, the next it's pitching,
the next is injuries. Pretty soon
they'll be blaming it on the
pinstriped uniforms.
MLB better figure out a way
to make its sport more
appealing to today's sports
enthusiasts. Sure, some sports
fans will attend a game once a
year just to do it, but that's not
keeping the seats full. In
today's world of hustle and
bustle, settling down for a long,
nine-inning baseball game just
isn't high on the "to do" list.
This isn't an endorsement to
shorten the game by any means.
But, in order for people to take
time and either attend a game or
watch it on television, there's
got to be another exciting
element. Relying on business
practices of decades ago aren't
going to get it done in today's
corporate world. Innovation is
key and a must for MLB.
So, thbre's the problem, now
what's. the solution. How does
MLB make its sport more


exciting and appealing to a
broader audience? That's
something that the bigwigs of
the league need to work on.
Hire an independent firm to
come up with ways to market
MLB to everyone, not just
people who watch it because
their dad made them when they
were growing up and now they
feel it's their duty to carry on
the tradition.
It's a dying tradition.
The entire situation with
steroids and uncertainty in
believing professional athletes
hasn't helped either. There
appears to be a lot of deception
around the pro sports world,
and in general fans are sick of
it. So, good luck MLB. You
know the problem, you've
known about the problem. Now
it's time to do something about
it.

suited up just five players,
including two players called up
from the junior
varsity team in its lopsided loss
at Buchholz on Dec. 16. The
coach said the Panthers also had
some players quit the team
towards the end of last season.
"It ended up being a very good
season after all the stuff we went
:through, we kept fighting, and
kept persevering," said Frisina. "It
ended up good and I can
appreciate that now. But we can't
rest on it."
And Frisina is sticking to his
word as Newberry has taken
advantage of a six-game summer
league schedule that has seen the
Panthers post a 4-2 record.
"It is much better being here the
whole time. I didn't get here until,
the..end of July last year," Frisina
said. "We had to get to know each
other when the season started and
there wasn't enough time, now
even the freshmen coming in
aren't going to be new.
"I love this, I have kids that


want to play and it is enjoyable to
coach," said Frisina. "Last year
they would have never asked to
practice more, these kids are
asking for more open gyms and
that is a great thing, that is a
fantastic thing."
Newberry loses seven players
that contributed to last year's
club, including six seniors.
Forward Jaquinta Wiggins is
-expected to return as Newberry's
lone senior, while rising junior
Lavarsha Nattiel will take dn the
challenge of moving from the
shooting guard position to the
point guard slot for next season.
Chonderia Garrison, who has not
played with the Panthers this
summer, is also slated to bring a
physical presence along with her
exceptional rebounding ability
back to the Newberry lineup.
Frisina also said that rising junior
LaPorcha Robinson, a newcomer,
could be an asset to the team at
one of the forward spots.
Newberry will once again look
to play an up-tempo style on both
ends of the floor.
"We are going to have to be
faster and hustle more than


anyone else," said the coach. "We
are going to have one or two
inside players, that's it."
For the summer, Frisina graded
his club's performance and
progress as a B-/C+.
"Right now we have a lot of
kids that haven't played and are
lost. We are being carried by our
older kids right now," said
Frisina, who has fielded a roster
of between seven and nine players
for each o his team's games this
summer. "Those younger kids
come out and fight hard but they
don't know where to be. They
don't know how to play defense
yet and they don't know how to
play offense yet. That's what we
we're learning right now."
Frisina said he is having a great
time coaching this summer and
likes the way things look for his
squad next season.
".vWe have a few things we have
to work on, we have a few things
to tweak," said Frisina. "But if we
can get-everyone on the same
page we'll be pretty good."

way the game of football is
lined up on Fridays in the fall.
Therefore, Brooks says it's an
adjustment for each team to
look at each coverage carefully.
Also, there's no running game
so the threat of the pass is a
given, which makes the offense
work that much harder.
"The main thing that you try
to prevent is you get into a
seven-on-seven mode,"
explained the first-year head
coach. "Where maybe you see
some different coverages you
* don't see in a real game, you
don't have the threat of a run
game so they know it's going to
be a pass.
"You're facing other teams
that are trying to shut down the
passing game. You're trying to
develop some continuity with
the receivers and timing routes
with the quarterback. On
defense you're making sure
you're covering people, have a
good grasp of whatever
leverage we're playing. There's
a reason why we're doing those
things to get extra practice over
the summer."
Always a concern during the
summer months, particularly in
Florida, is the threat of heat-
related injuries. With
temperatures that reach the high

Camp hosted over a hundred
teams competing in their
respective skill-level division.
"Overall it's a pretty good
camp," said Harris. "We got to
play a lot of basketball and the
whole point is to improve and
evaluate your play and we got
an opportunity to do that.
"We enjoyed the camp and
are looking forward to it next
year.
"With us having some
newcomers, transfers, it allows
us to be around each other and
mesh and learn each other."
While the camp did offer
some bonding opportunity for
the Raiders, it also exposed
their weaknesses in a big way.
Harris says his team is not
playing fundamental team
basketball and has got to learn
that in order to be successful
they need to grasp the team
concept. Harris also said his
team is not doing what is
necessary to earn respect from
other programs.
"The biggest disappointment
was our team. The biggest
thing we emphasize is earn
x respect," leveled Harris. "We
want to earn respect in the
county, in the state and we
didn't do that. We didn't play
to earn respect.
"We thought we were
slighted a little bit being put on
the side courts, but we didn't
prove people wrong. Every
time we go out on the court we
want to go earn respect. We
didn't do a good job of that."
According to Harris, one of
the surprises of the tournament
was rising freshman Shaquan
Jones who was moved up from
junior varsity to varsity midway
through the camp. Jones, a 6-
foot, lineman build, provided a
much needed punch for the
Raiders in the post. /
"I was happy to see *e pulled
a freshman up an.c ife blended
in well," said Hiarris. "He was
very physical, played very hard
and, ts'g-'uys accepted him so
that's a positive. He's going to

90s and low 100s, there's no
question that hydration is key in
athletic participation. Brooks
says that the issue of
maintaining a hydrated body is
one that is reinforced on a daily
basis.
"We supply them with water,
that's one of our main concerns
is to make sure they do maintain
hydration," leveled Brooks. "A
lot of that is what they do before
they get here on campus and we
tell them that every day. The
first week some of these guys
were shocked and didn't come
prepared and we had some
issues We had to take care of to
make sure they were hydrated.
"We supply them with
coolers and water bottles
because when you're out there
you're going to be sweating a
lot."
While the seven-on-seven
scrimmages are taking place on
a weekly basis, the Raiders are
taking care of business in
conditioning and weightlifting
on a daily basis. Santa Fe
works out in the weight room
throughout the week and also
offers outdoor conditioning as
well. According to Brooks,
conditioning is key when a team
is playing four quarters of
football and that's exactly what
his team's conditioning routine
is centered around.
"It's going extremely well,

be a varsity player."
Santa Fe plays The Rock
tonight at Hawthorne High
School at 6 p.m. before
traveling to Newberry on
Tuesday. In two weeks, the
Raiders will head off to
Daytona Beach where they will
take part in the Embry Riddle
basketball Team Camp. Harris
says his team will do what's
necessary to be successful in
the camp, which involves going
back to basics.
"One thing that I got from
going to the UF camp is we
needed to get back to
fundamentals and we're going
to stress that in the coming
weeks," maintained the first-
year boys head coach. "We
have two weeks until Embry
Riddle camp and we're going to
stress fundamentals. We're also
going to get healthy. We've got
some people who are banged up
and need to get healthy. We
want to end the summer on a
high note."

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water)
include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As
water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive
material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of
animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes
regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water
provided bypublic water systems. The Food and DrugAdministration
(FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water,
which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to
contain at least small amounts ofsome contaminants. The presence of
contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a
health risk. More information about contaminants andpotential health
effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection
Agency s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking
water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons
such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who
have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other
immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly
at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking
water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on
appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium
and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

All hail the king


of the Chiefs


Carl Peterson, longtime
Kansas City Chiefs president
and general manager, is
embarrassed.
"When I turn on the radio
and all I hear is people talking
about the Chiefs ... I'm
embarrassed," Peterson said at
an informal Kansas City
gathering a few weeks ago.
"When I grew up, football was
for winter and in the summer
you talked about baseball."
For the past 18 years, it's
been statements like that which
have helped keep Peterson at
the very highest levels of the
NFL's executive order and the
longest-tenured general,
manager in American
professional sports.
His comments about
baseball's Kansas City Royals
were a subterfuge, of course ...
and you don't survive in as
ruthless a game as the NFL
without employing various
methods such as this. Peterson
had been the talk of the town
for the past several weeks, and
media scrutiny was intensifying
over his handling of former
Chiefs quarterback Trent
Green.
A look at the Green
situation perfectly encapsulates
the way Peterson does business.
With heir apparent Brodie
Croyle waiting in the wings,
Peterson rewarded backup
quarterback Damon Huard with
a three-year, $7.5 million deal
for his standout season in 2006,
and, in so doing, created a
quarterback controversy in this
football-crazy town.
By signing Huard before the
draft, Peterson had, essentially,
laid his cards out on the table.
Surely, those around the league
surmised, Peterson was going
to deal Green at the draft, and
with all that money tied up in
Huard and Croyle, Green could


probably be had for a song.
Right?
Wrong.
With his former coaches at
the Miami Dolphins eager to
sign Green and dump the
injured Daunte Culpepper, the
Fins offered Peterson a
seventh-round draft pick as
compensation. Peterson
rejected the offer, stating he
wanted a fourth-round draft
pick for Green if he became the
Dolphins' starter and a fifth-
round pick if he didn't. Green
and the Dolphins were upset.
Peterson didn't care, stating he
would be happy to start the
season with Green still a Chief.
The Dolphins worked out a
contract with Green and went
back to Peterson after the draft
was concluded, figuring time
had softened Peterson's stance.
Instead, Peterson went to
Scotland to play golf and visit
family. Phone calls to Green's
agent were not returned.
Peterson had to cut his trip
short, but not to negotiate.
"I got a call from [my wife]
that our cat was dying,"
Peterson told "A Sporting
View."
A week later, Green was
traded to the Dolphins. The
terms: The Chiefs get a fourth-
round pick if Green plays more
than 70 percent of Miami's
offensive plays and a fifth-
round pick if he doesn't.
And with drama like this, he
wants fans to discuss the
Royals?
"Don't get me wrong,"
Peterson said with a smile. "I'm
Happy that people are talking
about the Chiefs!"

B6 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 2007


PANTHERS:
Continued from page Bl
highlighted the stanza as the
Tigers grabbed a 6-3 lead.
But Union County's
advantage was short-lived as
the Panthers answered back
with four runs of their own in
the bottom of the fourth inning.
Newberry sent eight batters to
the plate, managed just a pair of
hits and cashed in on three
Union County errors to pull
ahead 7-6.
Each team scored a run in the
sixth inning, which left the
Panthers clinging to an 8-7 lead
with three innings left to play.
Union County pushed a pair of
runs across in the top of the
seventh, before Jake Rhoden
lined a solo home run over the'
left field fence in the bottom of
the stanza to deadlock the
contest at 9-9.
Jake Prevatt's solo home-run
that found the trees beyond the
left field fence placed the Tigers
ahead 10-9 in the top of the
eighth inning, while the
Panthers used an RBI double by
Hoffman and a run-scoring
single from Tipton in their half
of the frame to regain the upper
hand at 11-10.
But what proved to be the key
play of the night took place with
one out during Union County's
top half of the ninth inning.


Colby Andrews hit a slow roller
up the first base line, which
SNewberry pitcher Tay Ross
made a play for. Ross fielded
the ball and crashed into
Andrews, who was almost half
way up line as he tried to make
his way to first base. Ross
dropped the ball during the
collision, but got up and threw
to first base for what appeared
to be the second out of the
inning.
"I have a pitcher going hard
for the baseball, his momentum
takes him into the kid and they
happen to make contact, which
was incidental contact,"
Roundtree said. "He didn't do it
maliciously, he didn't throw an
elbow out there, it was
incidental contact. The ball
pops out, their guy hops up, our
guy hops up and we throw him
out at first. But the umpire said
no, it was obstruction. Our
pitcher obstructed the runner
even though he was going for
the baseball."
The coach said based on his
understanding of the rule,
obstruction should not have
been called.
"The runner has got to avoid
contact if at all possible and I
think he could have avoided
contact," Roundtree said.
The inning continued and
Andrews, representing the tying
run, moved to second on Mark


Brown's sacrifice bunt and
reached third base on a passed
ball. Ryan Liptrap then walked
and stole second base before
Chance Howell was hit by a
pitch to load the bases. Seth
Parrish then served a bloop
single into right field to chase
home Andrews and Liptrap for
the eventual final margin.
Mason Dukes grounded out to
end the inning.
Rhoden drew a two-out walk
in Newberry's final at bat of the
evening, but pinch-runner
Matte Evans, who advanced on
a wild pitch, was left stranded at
second base.
Cason earned the win for the
Tigers, allowing three runs on
four hits, while walking two and
striking out six in three innings
of relief. He also chipped in
with a pair of hits, one run and
two RBIs in the win for Union
County. Prevatt ended with two
hits, three runs and twp RBIs
for the Tigers.
For Newberry, Ross suffered
the setback. The lefty gave up
three runs on three hits, walked
one and struck out one in two
innings of relief. Starting
pitcher, Josh Aggers worked the
first seven innings, yielding
three earned runs on seven hits,
while walking two and striking
out five batters.
Rhoden finished with two
hits, two RBIs and a run scored
for Newberry, which totaled 12
hits on the night.
"We're really starting to
come on, we were without two
starters today. We had a few
guys out that hurt us.a little bit
in the line up, but we really
have a lot of guys swinging it
well," Roundtree said. "They
play the game right, they're
pretty disciplined at the plate,
they draw walks when we need
to, they're not afraid to get hit
by a pitch, and they run the
bases aggressively."
Despite the loss, Newberry's
aggressive style and ability to
battle during the summer league
action has Roundtree
encouraged for next spring.
"I wish the regular season
started tomorrow, I really do. I
can't wait, it is a breath of fresh
air to come out and have kids


Sme consider us a


that care what is going on and
focus on the game and play the
game the right way," said the
coach. "I'm excited, I really
think we have a chance to be
competitive next year."
Although the Panthers went
4-17 this past spring and return
just three seniors, Roundtree
has enjoyed coaching this
group.
"Even the district
championship team (2005), this
might be the most fun I've had
out there," Roundtree said.
"That district championship
team was fun and they were
talented, but these guys play
with a lot of heart."
Newberry's summer season is
coming to a close. The Panthers
host Hawthorne for a
doubleheader on Thursday
starting at 6:30 p.m. before
playing their final two games of
the summer on the road.
Newberry travels to Fort White
on Friday for a 6:30 p.m.
contest before heading to Live
Oak Melody Christian on
Monday for the summer-season
finale at 5 p.m.
"In the six years I have been
here this is one of the most
productive summers we've
had," the coach said. "We've
found some pitching, we've
found some guys to fill some
holes for us and we're learning
how to play the right way."

Danica Patrick:

Winner or whiner?


Q: How do you think Danica
Patrick is doing these days? She still
hasn't won a race, and I'm
wondering if she ever will. The
television shows and some of the
drivers are portraying her as a
spoiled brat, especially after her run-
in with Dan Wheldon at the
Milwaukee race. Do you feel
Andretti-Green made the right
choice in putting her behind the
wheel? Karen L., Indiana

A: Karen, at this point in time, I
believe Danica Patrick is poised to
win'her first race. Her performances
at Indy and Texas this year were
both strong and credible, regardless
of any gender talk. I'm talking
strictly ability behind the wheel.
As for her confrontation with
Dan Wheldon, I can't really
admonish her for confronting
Wheldon for what she felt was his
"cutting down" on her in the comer
at the Milwaukee Mile. Both
Patrick and Wheldon have
addressed the situation, ard Danica
supposedly apologized for grabbing
Dan's arm after the race.
I don't want to point any
fingers, as her reaction is just what
one would expect from a winning
race driver in the "heat of battle." If
there was no reaction, or Danicajust
passed it off, I'd probably question
her desire to win. Also, the "grab of
the arm" she gave to Wheldon
wasn't overly aggressive, in my
opinion, as Patrick was trying to get
his attention in a manner that did not
go down well with Wheldon at the
time or with most of the
television viewers. So I'll agree she
probably could have handled it
better.
Still, I'll give Danica Patrick
credit for her desire to win. She now
carries the credentials to score that
first win, as I believe her
performance at Texas, where she
finished third and ran wheel-to-
wheel at 215 mph with the "boys,"
is just the tip of the iceberg in her
win curve.
Finally, I feel Andretti-Green
Racing made a great choice in
.adding her to the roster of drivers
because she is for real, and as I
mentioned after her great run at Indy


I -U


..










Danica Patrick
a few years back, it will take time
for her to win.
Well, that time has come. Also
remember that .because of her
gender, she puts up with more
scrutiny from the media than,
anyone I can remember in a long,
long time.
***
Q: I was really glad to see Ned
Jarrett on ESPN recently working a
Busch Series race with Dr. Jerry
Punch and Ned's son, Dale. I know'
Ned has another son, Glenn, who
I'm told also raced in NASCAR's
top division, then called Winston,
Cup. How good a driver was
Glenn? Bobby P., Florida

A: Glenn Jarrett, 56, is the elder
son of Ned and older brother of
Dale Jarrett. Glenn competed from,
1978 to 1993, although he only ran
67 Busch Series and 10 Winston
Cup races. His best Busch finish
was fourth at Charlotte, while his
best Cup finish was a 12th in 1980
at Ontario Motor Speedway.
Glenn stays active in the sport
as a noted motorsports pit reporter
for NASCAR events, and he has
worked for several television and
radio concerns, most recently with
the SPEED Channel.

Fireworks extraordinaire
As the sun sets, get ready for a spectacular fireworks display that will light up the skies
of Alachua. The Detonators are back, bringing their pyrotechnics expertise along with
some new surprises in store for this year's fireworks extravaganza. This year marks the
eighth appearance by the Detonators who have shared their skills and passion for fireworks
to one of the most impressive displays around.
What began as a backyard Fourth of July celebration with family and friends has trans-
formed into a citywide annual celebration that draws folks from miles around. When Fred


Hilton and Chuck Gork began-
producing a neighborhood fire- _-

years ago, little did they realize
that their neighborhood salute to
America would evolve into an
annual event that is now attend-
ed by thousands.
In 2000, then Alachua
Mayor Patrick Murphy asked
the group to put on a public fire-
works show for the town at the -
downtown Skinner Park. And
quite a show it was. The new
venue at the park drew such.
large crowds that the following
year the show was relocated
again, this time to the Alachua
Recreation Center. There, in ''
2001, thousands enjoyed the Ha R -
electrifying illuminations. In Fred Hilton
2002, the crowds increased
again, with thousands turning out just 10 months after the September 11 tragedy to salute
America and celebrate the country's independence.
Today, Hilton, Gork and all the Detonators, including Cory Brant, Bill Gillick, Jim
Markle, Keith Sanders, Jim Sazcjuk, Sean Sheehan, and James Waite are ready to give the
public a bigger and better show this year that they won't soon forget.

Safety first and parking
While fireworks displays are breathtaking to watch, the Detonators and city officials
remind the public that safety is a necessary precaution, and ask that spectators follow safety
directions while at the event. Hilton warns that 1.3G and 1.4G pyrotechnics can be dangr-
ous. Show goers are asked to stay behind marked areas where it's safest and where the
best viewing sites capture the night's spectacular show.
There will be reserved designated parking areas around the Hal Brady Recreation
Complex. Parking is open to the public in a cow pasture at the rear of the recreation center,
but there will be only one way in and one way out of the.field. Parking along 2054 (Peggy
Road) will not be allowed between 146 Terrace and the Interstate-75 overpass. The Hal
Brady Recreation Complex is located at the intersection of NW 146 Terrace and NW 143
Place. Signs will be placed around the city directing spectators to the celebration.
There is no entrance fee, so fill your Fourth of July with fun, entertainment, food, fami-
ly and friends. Be part of the City of Alachua's Eighth Annual Fourth of July Celebration
this Wednesday beginning at noon. And at 9:30 p.m. hold on tight as the Detonators pro-
duce a sensational sho\\ of tier, illuminations, sure to elicit ooohs and aahs as Alachua
salutes die red, white, and blue in the largest small town fireworks celebration inAmerica.

County Road
What kind of music does .i .I
County Road play? That's a good .de
question. In a typical set you
might hear everything from Lester
Flat o Bruce Sprin,.stein, from
"Rockytop" to "All Along the
Watchtower." One promoter
called them a "bluegrass, rock
jam band," but in lieu of anything
more definitive let's call it "pop-
grass."
Whatever you call it.... you
don't want to miss Mike Gianikas,
Jamie Walker, Rein Leidelmeyer and Brian LaPlant, a.k.a. "County Road" when they
get all fired up and cooking. It is definitely worth the trip!

Crtiaaders for Christ
Gospel Choir
The local Crusaders for Christ r-
Gospel Choir infuses a special A I
energy and excitement to any
.event with their passionate vocals
faid~energizing band. Get ready ..
for hand-clapping, soul-shaking
sounds of celebration.

Mark Sweat & The
Family Band
Mix a little Bob Dylan with some Grateful Dead and sprinkle liberally with a dose
of ,uthern rock and roll and you have a good idea of what this band is about musical-
ly.
Mark Sweat sings and plays guitar. The Family Band is Josh McKenzie. lead guitar
and vocals, Rob Tucker, bass guitar and vocals, and Chris Adler, drums and vocals.
The band has been together for nearly a year and plays extensively throughout eastern
Alabama, calling beautiful Auburn, Alabama home.
The band's approach has been to get the right people together and build on the
peace and love they try to convey. They are truly "family," if not in blood, in spirit.
Mark is also godfather to Josh's
daughter and all of them have a
bond built on peace, love and
understanding.
Mark Sweat & the Family Band
plays songs by a variety of artists,
bringing a fresh approach to a clas-
sic song, or better yet, cover a song
by a well-known artist, but cover a
more obscure song of that same
artist such as JJ Cale's "Call Me
the Breeze".
The band has worked hard to
define their original sound and play
several of their own songs.
"Subterranean Tombstone Blues," written by Mark, is an epic song that often turns into
an opportunity to improvise and jam and show off the guy's musical prowess.
All members of the band have writing skills and they are in the process of writing
material for an album to be recorded in the near future.
