ALACHUA Nostalgia is a word that
follows 68-year-old Red Underhill around. The
one-time resident of High Springs has been a
collector of many things odd especially farm
tools and equipment. But Underhill is more than
S .. a collector. He loves sharing the
Things he collects. And
.-" fortunately for area libraries,
: Underhill recently paid them a
visit.
S Underhill selected 10 of his
favorite books, two in which he
Underhill is mentioned, and donated copies
to 14 area libraries including
Alachua, Archer, High Springs and Newberry.
"I chose these books because I have enjoyed
them over the years and I figure if I liked them, I
bet other people would like to read them as well.

Ask Your Dentist byAougl,

Antibiotics before
dental work


Q. Who should take
antibiotics before having a
dental procedure?
A: Natural \ou should
consult \ ith \our dentist and
\our doctor or cardiologist on
this question to see \\hat's
right for \ou. But the
American Heart Association
has narrowed the guidelines,
saying that only patients in
certain categories should take
antibiotics before a dental
procedure. Antibiotics are
intended to help reduce the
risk of infective endocarditis,
a potentially fatal infection of
the heart.
The heart association now
says only patients in the


follo, ing categorie- should
take antibiotics before a dental
procedure Those are patients
\\ho ha% e: a cardiac transplant
complicated b:, heart \a!\e
d\ fLinction. certain
congenital heart defects. a
histon of infective
endocarditi, and tho'e i. ith
an artificial heart valve. The
heart association further says
antibiotics should be given
only for procedures that
involve 'manipulation -of the
gums and teeth. Notably, prior
heart association guidelines
included mitral valve
prolapse, rheumatic heart
disease and other conditions.
Those are no longer included.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, JULY 05, 2007 A5


The Shepherd of His flock


God has given me a job to
do. That is why I stand before
the Altar on Sundays, but it is
much more than a job-it is a
privilege. I am at the Altar
because I love my God and I
want to do His will, a part of
which is to worship Him with
the rest of His children.
As Christians, we have built
a relationship based on trust and
love with Christ and with each
other. Those two words, LOVE
and TRUST, go hand-in-hand.
We love and trust God to watch
over, guide and protect us. We
cannot tempt God by doing
things intentionally, but when
we make a mistake or misstep,
-He is always there to protect and
guide us.
The priest-the shepherd-
is to be the spiritual guide for the
SBody of Christ and it is his duty
to be the father over God's
children, His flock. He is there
to guide, to watch over and to
pray for the flock. In the Old
.Testament, the Lord consecrated


the family of Levi to be the
spiritual handlers of the blood
sacrifices to Him. Christ
appointed priests to be the
handlers of the
bloodless sacrifice
of His Body and
Blood. We, the
Body of Christ, are
all ministers of the
Holy Trinity and we
have been given the
responsibility to
spread the Gospel to .
everyone.
But it is the I
priest, the minister,
who is the guardian The Ven.
of the souls of his Leasure
flock. So, there is a All Saints
bond of love and Church,
trust between the A parish
people and their Christian
minister, their priest. Church
The priest does not
look out over the congregation
and see sales units as a
businessman at a sales seminar
would. He sees families, who


Jo

sA
Ga
of
E


have joined together to celebrate
the love of God. He sees all of
the emotions that are being
expressed.
The priest is to
see more than the
emotions and
reactions of this
-. family that God
.-. has given him
charge over. And,
the Holy Father
has led His
Children to the one
who will lead them
in the celebration
i of love and
ohn E. worship of the
Holy Trinity., The
inglican Church is firstly a
linesville. family, with God
the the Father eternally
episcopal at its head, Jesus
Christ His Son at
His right side and
we are all brothers and sisters in
their family. As this family tree
branches out, so does the tree of
the Church's Apostolic


Succession.
It begins with Jesus then out
to the Apostles and on to the
bishops and the priests, ensuring
that they are passing along the
truth of God's Living Word as it
was given to the Apostles. The
bishop is the father over the
priest, giving advice and
guidance and assuring that his
example and teaching are in
accordance with Holy Scripture
and the rules of the Faith. Christ
founded His Church based upon
this family model, emphasizing
the connection between the
Family on earth and the Family
in Heaven. .
The basic foundation of this
relationship is one of love, The
Father loves the Son, The Son
loves the Father and we are
brought into this relationship by


Christ's love, of His taking our
sins upon Himself and cleansing
us by His Blood on the Cross.
At Pentecost, the Comforter-
the Holy Spirit-was sent by
God to bring us into communion
with the Father and the Son.
In the Epistle of Saint John,
we Christians are told to love
one another. Now, 'Love' is
such a mighty and powerful
word. As St. John states "There
is no fear in love: but perfect
love casteth out fear: because
fear hath torment. He that
feareth is not made perfect in
love." But we cannot harbor
sinful emotions like hate, envy
or greed without it destroying
our eternal ties to God and the
Church family. Let us guard our
hearts against these evils and
pray for God's help to let the


Light of His Son fill us, so that
we may be whole and in
communion with Him and the
Body of Christ-the Church
Catholic.
The world around us is in
turmoil-the forces of hate and
wickedness have engaged in
battle against the forces of love
and holiness. We must
strengthen ourselves against this
war through spiritual
edification, i.e., prayer and
fasting. As the Apostles learned,
some demons can only be driven
out by these means. So, let us
band together in prayer so that
the evil one and his minions will
be overthrown, and the Light of
the Gospel of Christ will shine
everywhere and for all men, in
all times and places.

AO ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, JULY 05, 2007


ATTORNEY:
Continued from page A]


Drumm: Wishes there were more applicants to City Attorney position


extensive experience in civil law,
municipal law, and his three years on
the High Springs City Commission.
DePeter said the contacts that he has
made throughout High Springs for a
number of years gives him familiarity
with the area and the daily functions of
City Hall.
Whitley, who is a former Columbia
County Commissioner, brings to the
table many years of serving as an
attorney for various municipalities.


Currently Whitley is Town Attorney
for Worthington Springs and Fort
White. Over the years Whitley has
also worked as a City Attorney for
Trenton and Waldo.
Whitley said he's seen problems
experienced by small towns similar to
High Springs. Whitley said that he
sees an exciting future for the area.
"High Springs is a growing
community. There is dynamic activity
going on there," said Whitley.


High Springs City Manager Jim
Drumm said the City Commission will
be conducting interviews with the
candidates within the next few weeks.
According to Drumm the interviews
will be conducted during City
Commission meetings. Drumm said
since DePeter is a candidate for the
City Attorney position he has abstained
himself from the search process.
Drumm said he's not surprised at
the small number of applicants who


have applied for the City Attorney
position since few attorneys are
interested in municipal law. However,
the City Manager is disappointed that
there are not more candidates.
"It would have been better if we
had more," said Drumm, who also said
he felt fortunate that High Springs has
two excellent candidates for the
position.
"They both have excellent
qualifications for the Commission to


review," said Drumm.
According to Drumm, whoever is
selected for the position will be
contracted by the city. However,
Drumm did say the position may be
fulltime if desired by the High Springs
Commission.
Drumm is hopeful a new City
Attorney is selected by August.

CAMP:

Camp teaches students self esteem, discipline, teamwork


Field trips to Camp Kulaqua,
-Poe Springs, My Sweet Art, and
the Alachua Library were
popular with the day campers.
McClain said the children
this summer have been learning
about unity. She said with the
children working on various
projects during camp they have


learned to work together and
realize that the most positive
results occur when everyone is
working as a team.
McClain said the camp
provides her the opportunity to
teach children manners and the
opportunity to meet new people.
"I get the chance to enrich


them with discipline, manners,
and self esteem, along with
meeting new people," said
McClain.
Sixteen-year-old Ashleigh
Godwin, who is a student at
Buchholz High School, has
served as a camp counselor
throughout the summer. On


Monday Ashleigh was playing
games with students and
reflected on her time at the
summer camp. She said
working with the children has
been the most enjoyable aspect
of being a camp counselor, and
she has learned to stay
organized during the month


long camp.
Eleven-year-old Neosha
Farrley, who is a student at
Alachua Elementary, said her
favorite parts of the camp were
playing games and going on
field trips. Ten-year-old Tia
Lewis said going to My Sweet
Art was her favorite field trip.


McClain said she most
enjoys seeing the faces of the
children on a daily basis.
"I love it. It's fun to see the
smiling faces," said McClain.

Time to celebrate


- but


please drive carefully and


don't drink and drive


Special to Alachua County Today
TALLAHASSEE The Florida Highway
Patrol (FHP) expects traffic volume to increase
during the 4th of July holiday period. Motorists
are encouraged to drive responsibly and.to use
designated drivers as a strategy to prevent
alcohol related crashes and fatalities.
"Holidays present a great opportunity to
enjoy family, friends as well as the great State of
Florida's many outdoor offerings. The
Department of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicle's mission is making highway's safe.
Sadly, holiday weekends are often deadly for our
motorists. The Department urges all motorists to
be careful, obey traffic laws, drive responsibly -
and buckle up," stated Electra Bustle, Executive
Director for the Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV).
"In order to ensure a safe holiday experience
for everyone, Florida Highway Patrol troopers
will be conducting enforcement patrols during
the July 4th holiday, which begins at 12:01 a.m.
Tuesday, July 3, and ends at midnight, Sunday,
July 8, 2007," stated Colonel Chris Knight,
Director of the Florida Highway Patrol.
Uniformed FHP personnel, normally assigned
to administrative duties in the office, will be
assisting regular troopers by patrolling interstates
and other major state roads throughout the six-
day holiday period. This strategy is intended to
increase the Patrol's. presence on major arteries
throughout Florida in an effort to deter traffic
violators, and to provide enhanced service to
motorists who break down while traveling or
need other types of assistance.
During last year's 120-hour 4th of July
holiday, 48 persons were killed in traffic crashes
in Florida: 59-percent of those drivers and
passengers who were killed in vehicles normally
equipped with safety belts were not using them;
also, 55-percent of the fatal traffic crashes were


alcohol-related. Troopers will be concentrating
their enforcement efforts on impaired, speeding
and aggressive drivers, and those who fail to
buckle up or properly restrain their child
passengers.
Florida's statistics are clear getting people
buckled up is the single most effective thing that
can be done to save lives. Studies have also
shown that most adults who don't buckle up
themselves -don't buckle up their children.
Nationally, more than half of all adults who
die in traffic crashes are not buckled up, and six
out of ten children who are killed in crashes are
unrestrained.
Motorists are urged to contact the FHP or
local law enforcement agencies to report an
impaired, aggressive or dangerous driver (to
reach the Florida Highway Patrol, simply dial
*FHP (*347) from a cellular phone). Callers can
remain anonymous. Motorists who experience
car trouble on the highway or otherwise need
assistance from the FHP are also encouraged to
use *FHP. For real-time traffic and road
condition reports, as well as maps and other
safety tips, the public is urged to visit the FHP
website at www.fhp.state.fl.us.
Florida drivers can also call 511 on their cell
phone for up-to-the minute updates on traffic
jams, road construction, lane closures, severe
weather and travel times on Interstates and major
highways.
The Department of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles encourages anyone with a valid
Florida driver license or identification card to go
online to www.hsmv.state.fl.us and enter their
emergency contact information. This vital
information gives law enforcement immediate
access to this information and makes it easier for
them to speak with someone quicker in cases of
emergency.

Road in Newberry at about 2:30 p.m. and gave
a teller a note and left the bank with arn
undisclosed amount of cash.

businesses at the development to be a good
fit with High Springs.
"We want businesses that can be
conducive," said Lackey.
Lackey said the development will
S feature traditional elements such as "Old
World Style" street lighting. In addition,
oak trees will be planted at each corner lot
located to create an oak hammock. Lackey
wants Santa Fe River Village to stand out
among developments in High Springs.
"We don't want this to look like a
subdivision," said Lackey.
Lackey told High Springs City
Commissioners on Thursday night that the
development will be something that the
City will be pleased with.
"We intend to make this an upscale
community that you can be proud of," said
Lackey.

Lackey said plans call for the
commercial area of the development to
feature a village walk concept, which he
further explained as parking in an adjacent
lot that is a distance from a store, and then
walking through an historic courtyard to
reach the desired store or location.
High Springs Commissioner Kirk
Eppenstein is enthusiastic about the
development and thinks it's a good fit for
High Springs. However, even with his
stamp of approval, Eppenstein is concerned
that the historic design of the development
may have people thinking there is a second
downtown in High Springs.
"I like the quality of the development,
but my concern is we're developing a
second downtown," voiced the
commissioner.
Eppenstein said there is a chance that
visitors to High Springs may get confused
between the proposed historical
development and the downtown area. To
help alleviate the confusion Eppenstein said
he would like see kiosks placed in the
community to give out bulletin board
information about High Springs.
According to Lackey the residential
portion of the development will consist of


single family homes. The homes will be
located in a mix of traditional
neighborhoods that include rear entry and
alley accessed garages. The area will have
a pedestrian oriented design that will have
traffic directed to the back of the sites.
One of the sticking points hindering the
planning stages of the project was testing of
water and sewer capacity on the property
where the project would be built. The
property will include a stormwater
management system that will be integrated
to provide a system of open space that will
serve drainage, community recreation, and
circulation needs.
Lackey has said previously 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.
Lackey said the project will cost several
million dollars.
After years of waiting Lackey is ready
to get the project off the ground.
"We're anxious to go forth and start
working," said Lackey.

Let freedom ring


This year the 4th of July fell dead
center in the middle of the work
week, not the most "convenient"
timing for many. But I imagine
that our forefathers weren't
concerned about convenience 231
years ago when they hungered for freedom from


foreign tyranny and were willing to
die to attain it.
It was not without great courage
that the Continental Congress and
the American Colonies declared
independence from Great Britain.
The freedom and national heritage,
which we celebrate annually, cost
our forefathers dearly. Some lost
their homes, their fortunes, their
families, and some paid the ultimate
price. Americans enjoy peace and
prosperity gained through great -
sacrifice, and we should remember
the debt owed to those who came
before us.


to risk the loss of our livelihood, property or even
our lives to defend our nation and our freedom?
Today and every day, hundreds of thousands of
men and women are doing just that. They are our
United States military, on duty and on call 365
days a year to ensure that freedom rings across our
great country. Their sacrifices are great, because

ELLEN BOUKARI
Today Columnist


Let us not forget that while we celebrated the
holiday, thousands of our military personnel
remained abroad and the flashes of light they
witnessed weren't from elaborate fireworks but
rather from deadly rockets and enemy fire. As we
go about our day-to-day lives, can we say we truly
know what constitutes "sacrifice?" Are we willing


maintaining the freedoms we enjoy
come at a high price. It has always
been so since the birth of our nation,
patriots have placed themselves in
harm's way to protect our way of life.
If you are tired of hearing about
how unpopular Americans are in
today's world, take a page from
Britain's departing Prime Minister
Tony Blair, who so plainly but
eloquently answered one of his
parliament members questioning why
he believes so much in America. Blair
responded, "A simple way to take
measure of a country is to look at how
many want in and how many want


out."
How ironic a statement, when considering that
at last count there are an estimated 12 million
individuals already on our shores who are here
illegally meaning they wanted in. And I submit
that of that 12 million people, the head of a pin
could hold those who want out. And this doesn't


take into account the millions of others who are
waiting to legally enter the country through the
Immigration and Naturalization Services.
The 4th of July holiday is over for 2007, but the
hard work and sacrifices continue for our military
personnel who are responsible for the rights and
privileges Americans enjoy. Please remember, not
only at this time of year, but all year long, that it is
our military who make it possible for us to
celebrate the Fourth of July and every other day
of the year. Offer a prayer for the safety of our
fighting men and women across the globe, and be '
appreciative of all who have made America the
great country that it is.
And for those of the opinion that America is an
oppressive big brother nation, or worst yet, a
terrorist nation, consider the millions of people in
other countries who would gladly exchange their
lives for ours, and their country for America.
I wish everyone a happy post 4th of July
weekend. Stay safe, say a prayer, and remember
that what's really good about the 4th of July is that
it's about America's spirit and being an American.

What is check fraud


Check fraud is one of the
largest challenges facing
businesses and financial
institutions today. With the
advancement of computer
technology it is increasingly
easy for criminals, either
independently or in organized
gangs, to manipulate checks in
such a way as to deceive
innocent victims expecting
value in exchange for their
S00000*00000000000


money.
A significant amount of
check fraud is due to
counterfeiting through desktop
publishing and copying to create
or duplicate an actual financial
document, as well as chemical
alteration, which consists of
removing some or all of the
information and manipulating it
to the benefit of the criminal.
Victims include financial
institutions, businesses that
I0000000000000000


accept and issue checks, and the
consumer.
In most cases, these crimes
begin with the theft of a financial
document. It can be perpetrated
as easily as someone stealing a
blank check from your home or
vehicle during a burglary,
searching for a canceled or old
check in the garbage, or
removing a check from your
mailbox you have mailed to pay
a bill.


It has been estimated that the
annual losses due to check fraud
are in the billions of dollars and
continue to grow steadily as
criminals continue to seek ways
to earn a living by defrauding
others. For the consumer, the
amount of inconvenience and
anxiety caused by resolving
problems with the account, local
merchants, as well as possible
repercussions with credit
bureaus can be considerable.

JULY 4TH: Tr
Continued from page Al
Those attending the
celebration had the chance to
enjoy mouthwatering ribs
barbecued by Fort White
resident Gary Legree. And
Legree's cooking was a big hit
among event attendees.
But the highlight of the
evening was the dazzling
fireworks display underneath
the night sky.
The event, which was titled,
"Fireworks in the Park," was
sponsored by the High Springs
Chamber of Commerce, the
City of High Springs, and the
High Springs Main Street
Program. Numerous local
businesses in the area helped
sponsor the event which is
quickly becoming a tradition in.
High Springs.
High Springs resident
Sharon Yeago said events such
as Saturday's with small town
community spirit are often hard
to find.
"Where else can you get this
kind of stuff?" said Yeago.
With High Springs holding
the only Fourth of July
celebration in Alachua County
on Saturday she expected a nice
turnout for the event.
"This is the only fireworks
in the county and I think people
will come out," said Yeago prior

residential development would
allow employees at Wal-Mart,
Dollar General and Sysco
distribution centers to live
nearby. But 999 units seemed a
hard pill for all to swallow.
Although the request passed
on first reading in a 4-1 vote,
Coerper voted against the
project saying it wasn't unique.
Commissioner Bonnie
Burgess also questioned if the
project contributed to urban
sprawl. City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr. said, "It could be
construed urban sprawl if you
look at the five-acre parcels
across the, street." Watson
added, however, that it could
also be construed otherwise
because of the nearby industrial
developments. Meanwhile, in
its report, the city staff said they
found the development to be

to the start of the event.
High Springs Main Street
Program Manager David
Crawford said this year's event
went more smoothly than last
year. However, with the hot
temperatures on Saturday
Crawford believes there is a
good possibility that next year's
event will be held later in the
evening. For next year's event
Crawford said he would like to
look into adding fans and using
a tent to protect people from sun
and temperatures.
High Springs City Manager
Jim Drumm said Saturday's
event is part of what attracts
people to smaller communities
such as High Springs.
"It's part of the atmosphere
of what people expect of a small
town," said Drumm.
The hot weather had
Drumm joking about wishing
the Declaration of
Independence was signed later
in the year.
"It's a shame Jefferson
didn't do this in November,"
Drumm quipped.
Constance Heuss, who
helped organize the event; said
celebrating the spirit of
America in High Springs was
the key reason why the city
decided to conduct the event for


a second year.
"It's very important and
that's why we wanted to do it
again," said Heuss.
Heuss added that the kids
park entertainment was a treat
for area youth by event
sponsors.
"That was our gift to the
kids," said Heuss.
She said the celebration was
the perfect opportunity for
residents to throw a blanket
down on the grass and relax.
High Springs Commissioner
Larry Travis said the fireworks


display along with seeing
people enjoying themselves is a
sound investment for High
Springs.
"This is a great deal. It's
worth every dime we spend,"
said Travis.
High Springs resident Patti
Lamneck said it's important to
appreciate the freedoms
America presents to its citizens.
"We need to remember our
independence and the
importance of it," said
Lamneck.

incompatible with nearby
industrial uses.
Calderwood said, "I too
have troubles with the numbers,
but I would also be concerned if
the number of units dropped
low enough to allow for septic
tanks.
"My preference would be to
have residential as opposed to
anything else," Calderwood
said adding that the likelihood
of the land remaining in an
agricultural use is slim.
Leading the way as a
concerned, resident was Theresa
Kenyon who said, "This is
really a lot." Kenyon was
especially concerned that the
number of units being proposed
would result in large increases
in the.number of students
attending schools which are
nearing or at capacity. Kenyon
didn't pinpoint just the Alachua
Ridge project as her only
concern, but said not enough is
being done to ensure school
capacity.
"If we wait for the school
board to do something, it's not
going to happen," Kenyon said.
Constance Canney said,
"We were promised a new
interchange since Wal-Mart, but
I would like to see a real plan.
"This is way too much, way
too fast, way too soon."
Florida DCA to review
Cellon Creek Preserve, a
possible 500 plus home
community along U.S.
Highway 441, followed the
Alachua Ridge presentation.
Concerns over that project were
similar to those raised in
discussions of the Alachua
Ridge development.
Commissioners were also
concerned about nearby
wetlands. The Cellon Creek
project is located in close
proximity to another recent


land-use change request that
would allow for as many as 999
homes.
The Cellon Creek Preserve
development was presented as a
walkable community which
would include not only homes,
but as much as 220,000 square
feet of commercial and another
126,000 square feet of
community commercial.
Commissioners debated the
Cellon Creek Preserve project
and ultimately voted to send the
proposed land use change to the
Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA) for
review.
A 188-acre land use change
request made on behalf of
Gregory and Lillian Bailey was
narrowly passed on first reading
and transmitted to DCA.
Commissioners chose to move
the project, which is also
located in the same area as the
Cellon Creek Preserve,
forward. The request passed by
a slim 3-2 vote with Coerper
and Burgess dissenting.
Gerry Dedenbach, of the
firm Causseaux & Ellington,
Inc. said the Baileys had no
intention of developing the
land, but were seeking the
amendment to "ensure that as
the city develops, this property
is not omitted from the ability to
develop."
Dedenbach said if his clients
didn't get the change made now,
it may lose its ability to be
developed.
"I don't foresee, if you take
a large number of 14
applications that are before you
in this [LSCPA] cycle,...that
anyone would be able to bring
forward a justification for
additional residential land in the
City of Alachua, probably, for
the better part of seven years or
so.


The measure squeaked by
the commission and could
allow for as many as 752 homes
based on the residential
moderate density zoning
classification.
Before voting, Burgess said,
"I don't think the timing is right
on this." Coerper echoed those
sentiments.
Although the project passed
on first reading, like the others
before it, it still must stand up to
scrutiny from the Florida DCA
The City of Alachua can
only submit two large scale
comprehensive plan
amendments each year. The
amendments are reviewed by
the Florida DCA. Several
developments may be
transmitted in each of two
possible submittals annually.
DCA issues an Objections,
Recommendations and
Comments (ORC) Report on
the requests.
Before adoptions to the
FLUM are final, they must be
returned from DCA with their
ORC reports and reviewed and
adopted by the commission on a
second reading.
The numerous requests for
LSCPAs over the last several
months prompted Coerper to
call for a workshop on
Wednesday, July 11 at 5:30 p.m.
in Alachua's new commission
chambers.
Coerper said the workshop was
necessary, saying, "This is so
we get an understanding from
this commission and our
citizens, as we grow, what this
all means in its totality."
Coerper hopes the workshop
will allow the city to look at all
of the developments as whole as
well as their impact on area
schools, roadway networks, and
city services.

Lifetime Panther retires


m Terrell Bass steps
aside after 32 years as
a coach and athletic
director
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
NEWBERRY Anyone who has
ever attended an athletic event in the
last 32 years at Newberry High School
has probably seen or crossed paths
with Terrell Bass.
But the man, who has been the face
of Panthers athletics for just over three
decades, has retired from the school
that has been a constant figure for most
of the 59 years of his life.
"The biggest thing probably is when
you get up every morning and you go
to the same place for 32 years," said
Bass, who was born and raised in
Newberry. "I spent all of my life, all of
my, elementary days, all of my high
school days at this high school in a
different building but still on the same
campus."
Bass has a lot of history with the
school. The building which is currently
used as a weight room used to be the
cafeteria where Bass would eat lunch
from the time he was in kindergarten
until the 12th grade. When he was in
the seventh grade, the school's current
gymnasium, where his office has been
located for years, was built.
He graduated from Newberry High
School in 1966, went onto Santa Fe
Community College before receiving a
degree from the University of Florida
in 1972. However, after a short stint
teaching and coaching at Union
County and Taylor County High
Schools, Bass returned home as the
Panthers' head boys basketball coach

coached Newberry for six years. "But
our whole body of work was real
productive. This was one of the most

Today Sports Columnist
Editor 's Note: The
following column references
a column written by Alachua
County Today Sports Editor
Adam Boukari in last week's
edition of Alachua County
Today.
I'm convinced that every
now and again, Sports Editor
Adam Boukari (A.B) plans to
specifically write about a
certain topic in order to take a
week off from writing his
award-winning column.
He accomplished this
break for himself, by
knocking America's past
time, knowing full well that I
would want a chance to
defend the beloved sport of
baseball.
He says Major League
Baseball is boring. Well
maybe he isjust not watching g
the right game. Sure there are
lopsided games that feature
bad teams, but that happens
in other professional sports
leagues, too. A two-out, bases
loaded bottom of the ninth
situation with the home team
trailing by one or two runs,
not points, is just as exciting
as any other late-game, last-
minute scenario other sports
can provide.
I'll never say I'm a patient
person, but I know nine-
innings of baseball grabs my
attention. For the casual fan,
baseball on the television
probably doesn't get it done
for them, but I'd always
rather go to the ballpark
instead of staying home to
watch it anyway.
A.B. is right about the
roster of teams always
seeming to change. It is not
as bad as he makes it out to

ALACHUA It's been the
site of the City of Alachua's
Fourth of July celebration for
years. With each passing year
the event seems to be growing
at an incredible rate. There are
more cars to park, more trash
cans to put out and more
fireworks to blow up.
And while transforming the
athletic hub for the Alachua
area into a circus for a day is no
easy task, there's one thing the
City has on its side -
iexperience. St*, there's no


fields at the complex as well as
the leveling of the former
Rolling Green building for a
skateboard park and spray pool.
Alachua Recreation
Directory Hal Brady says that
all other athletic and
community facilities around the
city are closed down during the
Fourth of July to ensure that all
necessary resources are
available for the event that has
been dubbed, "The Largest
Small Town Fireworks Display
in America."
This year the event will

"With the summer recreation
program, making the transition
from that to the Fourth of July,
that's difficult," said Brady.
"Now, there are so many
events, every day we've got
something going on."

Saints with 26 named to All-Academic Teams
GAINESVILLE, Fl. In 2006/07, Santa Fe Athletics had one of
the most successful seasons in history when it sent all four teams to
the state tournament arid three teams won the Mid-Florida
Conference Championship. In addition to the athletic
accomplishments, 26 student athletes were honored by the Mid-
Florida Conference for their hard work in the classroom and 17 of
those students were also named to the Florid Community College
Activities Association All-Academic Team.
The coaches and administration at Santa Fe Community College
stress academic success as well as athletic success, and it was
evident that the student athletes were able to balance their
responsibilities in the classroom, with those of their respective
sport.
To be named to the MFC All-Academic Team, a student athlete


must nave complete a run scneouue winue maIdaiining at -.u Jurf-
or better. Players named to this list: representing fastpitch softball-
freshman Hayley O'Mara and freshman Lindsey Wright;
representing baseball- freshman Chad Brock, freshman Tim Burke,
freshman Eugene Garnett, sophomore Chris Warren and freshman
Ryan Wolfe; representing men's basketball- Gavin Home; and
representing women's basketball- Shanterria Robinson.
Requirements for inclusion on the All-FCCAA team include a full
schedule of classes while maintaining a 3.3 GPA or better. Student
Athletes earning both MFC All-Academic Team and FCCAA All-
State Academic Team honors include: representing fastpitch
softball- freshman Amanda Bessent, freshman Jessica Bohn,
freshman Laura Hall, freshman Katie Murphree and freshman
Brooke Richardson; representing baseball- sophomore Michael
Kelly, sophomore Ryan McKenzie, freshman Brandon Neff,
sophomore Anthony Randich, sophomore Bobby Uzdavines and
sophomore Billy Whitaker; representing men's basketball-
freshman Clay Sidner; representing women's basketball-
sophomore Sara Crane, sophomore Katie Koestner, sophomore
Helena Nilsson, sophomore Stephanie Tileston and sophomore
Shante Walker.
Sophomores Michael Kelly and Katie Koestner were also named
male and female recipients of the SFCC Kenny Drost Student-
Athlete Leadership Award for 2006-07.
"The academic success of our student athletes is more important
then their success on the field or court," said SFCC Athletics
Director Jim Keites. "To have a group like we did this year that was
able to strike a balance within their work ethics is inspiring."

Last June, a brash young

Magic Man" Malignaggi
stepped into the ring at the

Garden with a 21-0 record,
,bouncing around with his
trademark blond rooster haircut.
"Nobody comes into my

To make matters tougher for
Malignaggi, he was fighting in a
much smaller ring. Speed is
Malignaggi's weapon he
counts on hitting you first and
often, rattling the punchers with
the uncommon pace of his
punch attack. Unable to move,
the stronger Cotto was able to
cut off the ring and unload on
Malignaggi.
After the fight, Malignaggi
admitted he felt like he had been
'through three fights.

Malignaggi would say
immediately after fight. "As far

like I did that already."
Malignaggi backed up his
words by drubbing then-IBF

Lovemore Ndou over 12
rounds, beating him to every
punch and even knocking him
down once a rare feat for the
light-hitting Malignaggi, who
has only 5 KOs in 23 fights.

Try to understand: He's the

"People are going to always
talk about Pauli Malignaggi. ...
I've got that personality that
people don't like," Malignaggi
told BoxingScene.com just
before the Ndou fight. "But this
is what it is. I'm going to be on

IBF title, and I'm gonna go after
Rickey Hatton. One fight at a

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, JULY 05, 2007 B3
-- I !


BASS:
Continued from page B1
principal of Newberry High
School and handed Bass his
diploma when he graduated.
Years later, Bass found himself
working for Pritchett.
As a coach, Bass guided
several teams in various sports.
He led'Newberry to the 1981
Class 2A state title in boys
weightlifting and also served as
the boys basketball coach from
1975-76 to 1979-80, leading
the Panthers to the regional
playoffs on two occasions. Bass
also coached the Panthers' girls
hoops team from 1988-89 until
1994-95, which included his
two daughters Nicki and Terra.
During that stretch Newberry
made the regional playoffs four
times, highlighted by a trip to
the 1989 Class 2A state
semifinals.
He also was Newberry's
football coach from 1979-89
steering the Panthers to two
undefeated regular-season
marks and four regional playoff
appearances. Bass was also an
assistant coach when Newberry
advanced to the 1992 Class 2A
state championship game.
During his tenure, Bass said
that he has.worked for seven
different principals and has
taught three different
generations of Newberry
students. Out of the numerous
amount of student athletes he
has come in contact with, Bass
said Rick% Nattiel and Keith
Ross were the best football
players that he has ever
coached. Nattiel \ ent onto play
for UF. before playing in two
Super Bowls during his six year
NFL career \\ith the Denver
Broncos. Bass said Ross played
two years, of minor league
baseball before playing football
for Florida State.
"I'm part of a vanishing
breed, not too many coaches
get in this thing for the long
haul any more," said Bass,
whose final day as Newberry's
Athletic Director was last
Wednesday. "The thing that
makes me feel good more than
anything else is to know I have
beei able to stay at this school


all these years."
Another person who has
witnessed what Bass has done
from different vantage points at
Newberry is current Panthers
head baseball coach Bryan
Roundtree. He played junior
varsity football for Bass and
also had him as a teacher before
graduating in 1997.
"I've learned more from him,
playing for him and now
working for him than I've
learned from just about
anybody, just the
professionalism and doing
things the right way,"
Roundtree said. "He is an
institution here, he really is.
When you think of Newberry
you definitely think of coach
Bass."
Although he has cleaned out
his office and has handed in his
keys, Bass will always have a
place in Newberry. But now
that he will have some new free
time to use, Bass said he plans
to do some hunting and fishing
while also serving as a
supportive grandfather to his
grandchildren.
"I've never had the desire to
go anyplace else. I've never had
a desire to leave Newberry
High School for two reasons,
number one because I was born
and raised in this community
and Newberry High School has
meant an awful lot to me," Bass
said. "The second thing is, it
has always been a close knit
community and it has always
been a wonderful workplace as
far as I am concerned.
"All I ever wanted to do was
be a ball coach," Bass said. "I
just hope everybody thinks
Newberry is a better place than
it was when I got here."

checking oer the final
preparations. Some city staff
stays overnight.
Some of the challenges in
previous years have been
providing vendors with proper
electrical hookups for their
operation and routing visitor
traffic in the most efficient
manner. However, some
challenges are out of anyone's
control.
Brady says the one thing that
slows down the entire
transformation more than
anything else is Mother
Nature. This year, rain on
Monday and Tuesday have
slowed down production and
forced staff to reschedule set-
up accordingly.
Everything is accounted for,
from every American Flag that
is posted around the Complex,
to setting up the stage, hooking
up sound equipment and of
course the main attraction- the
fireworks.
Brady sa s it takes him and
his staff nearly a week to
breakdown the event and get
back into normal working
order. While athletic events
are scheduled around the
Foijih of July every year in
Alachua. the sporting activities
resume almost immedijrely
thereafter.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL THURSDAY, JULY 05, 2007 B5


OLSEN from page B

be, but with free agency and
mega dollars, you don't see
players sticking with one team
throughout their whole career
like you used to see. But being
the MLB trade deadline is at the
end of the month, expect to see
teams wheeling and dealing in
the coming weeks.
And checking out the
standings is as easy as opening
the sports section of any daily
newspaper or going online to,
for example, www.mlb.com.
Real sports enthusiasts could
also subscribe to have scores
and info like that sent to their
.cell phones.
S But please don't, let A. B.
fool you. He wrote in last
week's column that it is not an
attempt to offend baseball
players or coaches. Well, to me,
he didn't sound like he was
handing out any compliments.
He adds that local baseball, I'm
guessing he means at the high
school level is fun to watch. To
me, baseball at any level is fun
-*to watch.
S. So, to all of you area high
school and youth league
-coaches and players out there,
.:- what you do now is fun for A.B.
-.-to watch, -but when you get
older and advance in the sport of
b baseball don't expect to see him
in the stands or in the press box.
:I guess what he is saying is that
:- former Santa Ee stars, Avery
-- Barnes, now at UF and Jake
SHitchcock at Stetson are boring
-and no fun to watch. What about
-former Raider Lenny DiNardo,
.:who pitches for the Oakland
; Athletics? Yeah, who cares that
-'" he is from High Springs, played
-at Santa Fe and worked his way
S-into the big leagues. All players
-and coaches at any level should
I e offended by what A.B. wrote
b -Because he is knocking the sport
: -that you might be dreaming of
playing in and or coaching in for
-a career. Baseball is baseball at
:-any level and' he just doesn't
Scare about it.


As for his shot at the Yankees,
that's because I'm a huge fan of
the Bronx Bombers. There's not
much I can say about them right
now, they own a 38-41 record as
of Tuesday morning and sit 11
games out of first place in the
American League East division.
The Yanks haven't won a World
Series since 2000, haven't
appeared in the Fall Classic
since 2003 and if they don't turn
things around they could miss
the playoffs for the first time in
12 years. Baseball is a business,
but what major sports league
isn't? Like the Yankees are the
only team that goes out and
spends a lot money and not get
the most back for their
investments? The Yanks are-the
most publicized professional
sports franchise to do that, but
they are certainly not the only
ones.
Regarding the length of
baseball games, college or pro
football games,take as long if
not longer than baseball games.
But A.B. and the other "I can't
wait until the summer is over so
football will be back" fans
forget that, because they don't
have the knowledge of and or
the attention span to grasp a
sport that might not include a
violent full contact action ever
second. Maybe A.B. just puts on
Sun Sports or FSN and just
watches the Marlins and or
Devil Rays where attendance is
not good, but not all places are
like that.-
Sure, the MLB is not perfect
and somehow needs to find a
clear solution to the past and
present steroid problem. But the
MLB does try to market its sport
to'everyone.
Every club has a vast majority
of give away items for several
games throughout the season.
Also some teams have different
activities and events for certain
games geared for people of
specific ethnic groups. Some
clubs even have a day where
fans can bring their pets to the
game. Also, many franchises


offer family packs of tickets that
make it affordable to attend a
game with a family. Discounts
for senior citizens and for
students are also offered.
During the games, there are
always contests for prizes and
other interactive activities on
the scoreboard that take place
during breaks in the action.
While the prices of tickets for a
MLB game have increased you
can still get a cheap ticket for
$10 or less at certain parks.
While that doesn't get you the
best seat in the house, it still
gets you in the door. Now I
know each MLB team has 81
home games per season
compared to eight regular
season homes games for an
NFL team. But for an NFL
game, you'd be lucky if you can
find a spot to park your car for
$10 or less.
I also understand that every
family is different and that
every person has been brought
up and raised in a certain way.
Baseball was a big part of my
childhood because of my dad,
who taught me the game and
coached me during my little
league days. My father exposed
me to baseball and all the other
major sports out there, most of
which I also enjoy. I was never
forced to play baseball or attend
a game. I went to my first game
at Yankee Stadium when I was
seven years old and I've loved
going to games ever since. I
even plan my summer vacations
to include baseball if I can. I
know there are a lot of people in
this country that also fell in love
with baseball because of their
parents. I think it was very
ignorant of A.B., who I consider
a good friend and a very
intelligent person, to say,
"...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."
A.B. has no clue about any


tradition or family bond
regarding baseball because that
is not the way he was brought
up. There are a lot of other
family activities out there that
have become traditions for
some people that I'm not
interested in and don't
understand. But, I know better
than to comment on something
that I don't know anything
about.
Adam loves to knock baseball
because he knows it gets me
fired up, but at the same time, he
forgets baseball is America's
pastime and a wonderful game.
I could sit here and list all the
reasons why watching baseball
is great, but I doubt he and other
people like him would listen.
But those of us who enjoy going
to the ballpark and appreciate
watching someone try and. hit a
baseball, we know what they're
missing.
Sure, Major League Baseball
has issues they need to address,
but again, what professional
sports league doesn't. But the
MLB, in my opinion, tries to
market their product to a wide
range of people. I'm not real
sure what Adam's exact
problem is with Major League
Baseball especially since I don't
believe he has ever attended a
game in person. But I do know
the next time DiNardo and the
Oakland Athletics come to play
the Tampa Bay Devil Rays
(Aug. 23-26) we should go to
the game as members of the
media and speak to the only
Santa Fe baseball player to have
his number retired, for a feature
story.
Then after the interview we
should go to press box and
enjoy nine innings of baseball.
Even though the game will be
played indoors instead of being
outside like it's supposed to be,
I think Adam will open his eyes,
look in the mirror and realize
what the real problem is.

B6 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, JULY 05, 2007


CHEERLEADING:
Continued from page B1
"I made a commitment when I
became Commissioner to work
toward recognizing
cheerleading as sport and
cheerleaders as student-
athletes," said Commissioner
John A. Stewart. "So, I am
extremely pleased that the
Board of Directors has given
final approval to the Inaugural
FHSAA Competitive
Cheerleading Championships.


PANTHERS:
Continued from page B1
hits and a Newberry error.
Dakota Carpenter and Bo Kirby
each had RBI singles to
highlight the frame.
Matt Hatcher's two-run
single fueled Fort White's
three-run fourth inning, before
the Indians blew the game open
with five runs in fifth and sixth
innings.
The home team paraded 10
batters to the plate in the fifth
inning. Tyler Sherrod's two-run
double to the gap in left-
centerfield was the big hit of the
frame. In the sixth inning, Fort
White sent another 10 batters to
the plate and also took
advantage of four Newberry
errors as each of the Panthers'
infielders had a miscue.
But aside from the Indians
scoring 18 runs on 13 hits,
while also cashing in on six
Newberry errors, the story was
what the Fort White pitchers did
on the mound. George Demko,
Hatcher and Alex Gilmer
combined to shut down the
Newberry line up, not allowing
any hits or runs. Newberry also
did not hit a ball 'out of the
infield after the first inning.
"There is no excuse for
something like that, 'it wsas
embarrassing," Roundtree said.
"You want to get all this stuff
out of your system," we can
learn from this."
Neil Thompson, Tay Ross
and Josh Aggers each saw time
on the mound and each hurler
had a tough time. Ross and
Aggers had pitched several


"Today's vote is the
culmination of months of labor
on the part of FHSAA member
school personnel,
representatives of the high
school cheerleading community
and the FHSAA staff," said
Stewart, who also announced
his retirement effective Nov. 1,
2008, to the Board of Directors
during the meeting. "I am
excited that the Association will
crown its first state competitive
cheerleading champions next
March."
Other interesting news in the

innings earlier in the week for
Newberry.
"We were without three or
four starters," said the coach.
"And we ran out of pitching,
which hurt."
Sherrod, Carpenter, Hatcher
and Chase Brewington each had
a pair of hits in the runaway
victory for Fort White (8-6).
"This was the first time (this
summer), .I really didn't think
we played hard," said
Roundtree, whose club also lost
to Fort White earlier in the
summer. "We didn't come
ready to play obviously."
Things weren't much better
for Newberry on Monday night
traveling to Melody Christian,
which collected 10 hits for the
game.
The Wildcats jumped out to a
fast start, scoring four runs in
their first at bat, before adding
three more runs in the second
inning. Alex Tipton laced an
RBI triple in the third inning to
get the Panthers on the
scoreboard.
Melody Christian pushed
three more runs across in the
bottom of the third inning to
take a commanding 10-1
advantage. In the top of the
fourth, Thompson and Aggers
each had RBI groundouts, while
the visitors also scored on an
error to make it a 10-4 affair.
But, the Wildcats, who
dropped a 16-14 decision to the
Panthers earlier this summer,
added four more runs in the
bottom of the fourth inning to
close out the scoring and
provide the eventual final
margin.


FHSAA includes the Board's
approval of two new terms and
conditions for state series
competition. Effective with the
2008-09 school years, schools
that wish to participate in the
state championship series in
any sport will be required to
play a minimum of 60 percent
of their regular season contests
against other FHSAA member
schools and will be limited to
one trip per season beyond the
neighboring states of Alabama,
Georgia and Mississippi in that
sport.

Andrew Vargas, Mike
McKoy and Jake Rhoden each
toed the rubber in the losing
cause for Newberry. Josh Pardo
collected two hits in the setback
for the Panthers.
"We still have to get more
consistent, but overall it was a
very good summer," Roundtree
said. "This is a good bunch of
kids, they are fun to be around
and they play the game the right
way for the most part."
Roundtree, who returns just
three seniors from the squad
that was 5-20 this past spring,
likes the way things look for his
ball club in the future.
"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," Roundtree said. "I think it
is going to be a pretty good year
next year, I really do."
