By DAN REID
Today Reporter
"ALACHUA The Alachua Police
Department (APD) arrested four teenagers
in connection to multiple burglaries and a
stolen car during the early morning hours
Friday.
APD booked 19-year-old Jessica Smith,
14-year-'old Jared Williams, Dequante
Rollins, 13, atid Willie Rollins, 14 after a
car the four. had allegedly stolen broke
down. Officers apparently found the
disabled car and then the teenagers nearby.
All four teens are residents of Alachua
and are being charged with felonies, APD
spokesperson Carrie Lund said. Charges
include several counts of grand theft auto,
grand theft, petit theft, burglary and


criminal mischief APD reported. Dequante
and Willie Rollins are cousins.
The group of teenagers reportedly
burglarized concession facilities at Santa Fe
High School and other park facilities
around Alachua as well as some automobile
shops.
Lund said earlier during the night the
Group stole a Buick Park Avenue at 14203
NW 155th Place in Alachua before heading
to the school. Once the teens entered the
school they broke into several concession
stands at both the football and baseball
fields. The teens then entered the baseball
staff office outside of the diamond and stole
numerous items including audio
equipment.
Police are unsure of the estimated costs


of the items stolen from the school, but
according to Santa Fe High assistant boys
varsity basketball coach Ben Boukari,
thousands of dollars of items were stolen
including both food and audio equipment.
Lund said Skinner Field near downtown
Alachua was also burglarized and had an
estimated $1,500 worth of damage as a
result.
* The group used a baseball bat to break
into the concession stands and the baseball
office, APD reports.
On Tuesday Lund said that most of the
items stolen have been recovered:
Santa Fe High principal Bill Herschleb
said the school will be taking precautions in
protecting campus property in wake of last

Low ridership



plagues Alachua


transit service


By BRYAN BOURARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA After 11
months in service, the City of
Alachua Transit System
(CATS) is under review by city
officials and the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT). The first year of
CATS has been funded in part
by an $83,750 grant from
FDOT. But obtaining funds for


a second year may not be so
easy according to Gwen Pra,
FDOT District Rural,
Transportation Coordinator
"Ridership is lower than
what they wanted.
"They clearly'did not meet.
their goal.
"But establishing the core
ridership is key to long term
success of a rural transit
program like this," said Pra.

HIGH SPRINGS Parents
whose children attend High
Springs Community School
during the upcoming school
year will notice a change in the
pickup and drop area for their
children at the school and
hopefully less traffic


congestion.
During the course of the
summer a new bus, lane was
constructed to ease the flow of,
traffic during peak drop off and
pickup times during the day.
Parents dropping off children in
kindergarten through fifth
grade will do so at the front of
the school, as well as pick them

and a third of those are caused by
running red lights. In 2005, the latest
year for which statistics are
available, there were 96 fatalities
and 6,300 injuries in Florida as a
result of crashes involving red light
running. Florida contributed to 11-
percent of the fatalities nationally
due to red light running in 2005,
more than any other state.
SMotorists should always
remember several important rules
when approaching an intersection:
Slow down and prepare to stop
when a light turns yellow.
Yield to pedestrians. They have
the right of way regardless of
whether the intersection is marked
or unmarked.
Proceed through intersections
with caution even after the light
turns green. Remember to drive
defensively.
Come to a complete stop before
turning right on red. It is the law.
You may think that running a
red light will get you to your
destination quicker.. But wouldn't it
be better to be late than to put
someone's life in danger, including
your own?
During this campaign, the
Alachua Police Department will be
actively enforcing all traffic laws in
an effort to save lives and educate
Florida's motorists as we approach
the new school year. Alachua
Police Department officers wish the
public a safe and happy rest of the

Loving Thee above all things


There is a theory among some
denominations that there is no place
for human works in the plan of
salvation. This theory actually is a
myth which says that anything
added to the finished work of Christ
is an abomination to God. This idea
is not in accordance with Scripture,
and is clearly a misconstruing of the
Gospel of Jesus Christ.
A way to document this error
can be found in Saint Matthew 5:20
and Romans 6:3 which state that
good works are never separated
from lively Faith in God.
A well-known prayer states it
well, "0 God, who hast prepared
for those who love thee, such good
things as pass mans understanding;
pour into our hearts such love
toward thee, that we, loving thee
above all things, may obtain thy
promises, which exceed all that we
can desire; through Jesus Christ our
Lord Amen."
It is obvious that good works

We cannot take credit for our
works, because they depend upon


recipients of God's love and grace,
we are told to "reckon ourselves
dead unto sin and alive to God
Through Jesus Christ our Lord"
' Our new life in Christ is to be.one of


faith and of good works. A life in
communion with God will hate
what God hates, namely sin, and
loving God above all else.
The Christian life is not an easy
one; we are constantly engaged in
battle against sin, the flesh, and the
devil. It is impossible to resist sin by
our own power, but only by being
motivated by love for God. Thus,
He becomes the object of our love,
and we will maintain a proper focus
when confronted with temptations,
trouble, sorrow, or death. If we
focus on the difficulties, sins, and
temptations then our direction is lost,
our footing becomes unstable, and'
hope wanes.
In the Gospel of Saint Matthew,
chapter 20, we find the complex
distinction between the
righteousness of the Pharisees and


that demanded of Christ's followers.
Christ requires that we be motivated
by love rather than by law. The
Pharisees lived a life of utter
adherence to the Law of Moses;
they even expanded it to include
demands that were not originally
spoken of They were zealous for
keeping an outward appearance,
following the law just for the sake of
appearance. What the Pharisees
missed while keeping the Law was
love for God. The law was to inspire
their dependence upon God, and by
keeping it .they would be
acknowledging their inability to
attain everlasting life without the
initiation and intervention of God
Almighty.
Their failure was that they
replaced love for God with a self-
centered assurance of their greatness


and morality. This is a problem
facing modem Christianity. People
profess being a Christian, but many
fail to demonstrate any outward
signs of what they claim to have
experienced within. We should not
equate good works with merit points.
for salvation, becoming as the.
Pharisees, keeping our own laws,
approving of ourselves for keeping a
standard that we have set, proudly
believing that God is indebted to us
for our good works. Good works
must demonstrate the love of God
within us, flowing from our heart in
response to God's love, grace, and
forgiveness, and when we have
accepted our Faith as our guiding
principle, we must also embrace it in
our daily living.

Ask Your Dentist bDoul. SM

Eating disorders

and teeth


Q: Can an eating disorder
affect teeth?
A: Eating disorders like-
anorexia nervosa and bulimia
can definitely have a negative
impact on teeth, not to
mention their more serious
impact' on general health.
These conditions can occur in
males, but it is 'generally
adolescent females and those
in their 20's who are most
likely to develop and eating
disorder.
Anorexia nervosa is a
condition characterized by an
irrational fear of gaining
weight. The victim will push
herself to a state of
malnutrition by not eating or


by using laxatives or self-
induced vomiting to avoid
weight gain. Bulimia is a
condition in which a person
indulges a craving for food
with a binge of eating, but'then
induces vomiting.
Stomach acid generated in
vomiting can erode teeth. So a
continuing pattern of vomiting
will have a noticeable impact
on teeth, which will appear
worn and yellow. Because of
this, it is often a dentist who is
the first to detect signs of an
eating disorder. Talk with your
dentist for more information
about normal and abnormal
eating patterns.

CMULVEY: Mulvey's a father figure to his students

TRAFFIC:
Continued from page Al


More parents are opting to drop children off at school


up at the same location at the end of the
school day. Traffic will enter the front gates
and stay inside the right lane past the main
office to the elementary side of campus.
Parents of sixth to eighth grade students
will drop and pickup their children at the
old bus circle. According to assistant
principal Eva Copeland the designated
areas for drop off and pickup will begin at
the flagpole and stop at the end of the
covered walkway.
Marked parking spaces and the grassy


area next to the PE field will be used as a
parking area for parents who walk their
children to their classrooms. As for the new
bus lane, it will consist of one lane and is
designated for buses only.
Alachua County School District
Director of Facilities Ed Gable said the new
bus loop is part of the master plan for
expansion of High Springs Community
School. Gable explained the old procedures
for dropping and picking up children was
one way in one way out sort of system that


caused heavy traffic overflow outside the
school. He added one contributing cause of
the traffic problem is that more kids are not
walking to school an\ more, but iristead are
being dropped off by parents because of
security concerns.
When asked what role High Springs
officials and police personnel had in
improving traffic around the school Gable
said the city played a vital role and
participated in discussions on the issue.

The torch, a symbol of the
games, was delivered to the
Chinese embassy after the
"torch run" in Washington on
Thursday. More than 50 law-
enforcement officers, athletes
and delegates participated in the
last leg of the run after the torch
had traveled around the country
to help raise money.. It was
brought to the U.S. after its
stops in London and Cairo, and
it will be in China in time for
the games.
Some of the team members
and coaches got to shake hands
and take pictures with the
president at the White House
after the event. Bush was very
approachable and "real," Brown
said.

the World Games by winning.
the state championship and

Basketball teams.
Two male teams, the
Stompers and another team
from Minnesota, and two
female teams, one from Texas
and the other from Kentucky,
will represent the U.S. in
basketball at the World Games,
Brown said.
"We're anticipating some
tough competition so we're
really practicing hard," he said.
"It's a once in a lifetime
opportunity, and I'm very
excited about it."
"We gonna get it on!"
exclaimed Adevius Lanier, the
23-year-old starting center for
the Stompers. "It makes me so
happy and excited to see
another country and be able to
rep for ours.".
The whole team is very
excited, he said.
They will fly to Los Angeles'
on Sept. 26, spend the night
there, and then fly to Beijing the
next day for some "cultural
exchange." The games will be

aspects of security, pepper
spray training, handcuff
Straining, and classes that
emphasize first aid and CPR.
Mulvey said Alachua
Security courses are rigorous,
with the security training
requirements similar to the ones
a standard police academy
Offers. Florida law requires a
person to take a 40-hour course
for a basic security license
along with a 28-hour course for
Sa firearm license.
"What we emphasize is
. good physical conditioning and
extensive training beyond what
the State does," said Mulvey of
the 75 to 100 students who train
each year at the agency.
His entry into the security
business was a natural
transition from his stint as a
police officer in Miami where
he also dabbled in commercial
real estate. In 1988 Mulvey
moved to Alachua and opened
the Alachua Karate Center, a
successful karate school next
door to Conestogas restaurant
in downtown Alachua. A few


years later Mulvey moved the
karate school operations to its
present location at 14400 NW
140th Street in Alachua, also
the home of Alachua Security:
The father of three and
grandfather of three as well
enjoys the Alachua area, saying,
"It's way out in the country, no
neighbors." But Mulvey has
seen changes in Alachua over
the years as the area has
transitioned from a sleepy small
town to a growing small city.
"Alachua has become a
thriving economic and
residential community," said
Mulvey.
But changes in the local
landscape aren't the only
changes Mulvey has seen,
pointing to significant
differences in how security
agencies operate in the post 9-
11 world. Mulvey said that
times have dictated that
agencies such as Alachua
Security become more
concerned with the threat of
terrorism and playing an
important role in homeland


security.
Mulvey said the techniques
and training offered through his
agency provide trainees
growing confidence in their
abilities and their capacity to be
responsible for their own
protection. Mulvey's assistant,
Ryan Scott, said Mulvey
teaches his students to achieve-
their highest potential, and that
Mulvey's paramount concern is
that his students succeed.
Chad Bowland, a former
student of Mulvey's security
training course, said Mulvey
has been a positive role model
for him.
"He's been very helpful to
me," said Bowland, adding that
Mulvey loves dealing with
children who .attend karate
classes.
"He understands and talks to
them at their level," said
Bowland.
Another one of Mulvey's
students, Anthony Layne, who
has participated in both karate
and security training classes,
said he started classes with him


about eight years ago when he
was 13 years old. Layne said
Mulvey has been a positive
influence on his life.
"He's been a father figure,"
said Layne.
Jirf Yakubsin, who is chief
of operations for Alachua
Security, has known Mulvey for
20 years. Yakubsin sees
Mulvey as creative and
imaginative and believes
Alachua Security is successful
because of the ideas Mulvey
presents. Yakubsin said
students under Mulvey's
tutelage gain invaluable
knowledge.'
"He's the best teacher
around," said Yakubsin.
Stephen Wokee, Who
teaches martial arts with
Mulvey said Mulvey is always
open to new ideas that deal with
security and karate.
"If it works he'll do it," said
Wokee.

High Springs must pick its poison:


Exposure or exposure


n a town where so many people work tirelessly
to enhance the quality of life for its residents, a
gaping hole threatens that quality oflife. Over
the course of about four years, the City of High
Springs has contemplated what to do if an adult
business set its sights on the sleepy town. And four
years later, there's no more protection for anyone than
there was when the process began.
One High Springs commissioner commented
earlier this year that it's important for a community to
have an adult entertainment ordinance to keep such
businesses from locating in areas where children might
be exposed. We could not agree more with that
assertion which has prompted this editorial. The fact is
that High Springs is exposed right now and High
Springs must pick its poison.
For too long, High Springs and its youth have.
remained unprotected from impacts of a possible sex
shop. Although the commission has repeatedly passed
a moratorium banning sexually-oriented businesses
from locating within the city limits, that ban is unlikely
to stand up in court if challenged.
The intent of a moratorium on adult businesses is to
allow a community enough breathing room to
determine exactly how to handle them. A moratorium
should riot be extended ad infinitum as the one in High
Springs seems to have been. The commission has
adopted essentially the same moratorium on five
consecutive occasions for a period of six months each.
Should an adult business proprietor choose to open
a shop in High Springs, he or she stands a good chance


of resistance and a better chance of winning in the
courts. Judges, attomeys and folks in the adult
entertainment industry know what many of us don't
want to admit you cannot keep a sex shop from
opening its doors in your town.
Adopting a moratorium on sexually-oriented
businesses for a period in excess of two years has the
effect of censoring free speech. That's how the courts
see it and that will be the legal strategy used by a
proprietor should it be necessary.
High Springs, like every other city, must deal with
the reality that adult businesses exist and at anytime,
could choose to open its doors on a street near you.
But it's not all doom and gloom for High Springs.
It should be noted that the High Springs Public
Safety Committee has invested a great deal of effort to
ensure the future welfare of High Springs as a whole.
The committee has spent countless hours to determine
where a sex shop might be able to locate. Zones have
been created to minimize the impact on youth an adult
business would have and the committee has completed
its work.
The draft ordinance has since been reviewed by the
High Springs Plan Board and is now set for review by
the commission at an upcoming meeting.
Like other communities, High Springs was given
an adult entertainment ordinance by Alachua County as
a basis from which to craft its own. Included with the
ordinance is supporting research which backs up the
methodology in establishing zones as well as detailing
community impacts of adult businesses.


The sample ordinance needed a fair amount of
tweaking by each community using it as a starting
point because each town is different. The process of
ensuring the ordinance is legally defensible and is
properly tailored to the town is a gruelingjob.
Establishing geographic zones "for" adult
businesses is a thankless and monumental task and one
for which the Public Safety Committee should be
commended. No one wants to determine where a sex
shop can be located, because no right thinking person
wants a sex shop in their backyard or anywhere nearby.
The City ofAlachua knows all-too-well what sort
of legal havoc an adult business can wreak on a
community. Alachua faced a very real problem when
an adult video and novelty shop actually opened for
business along US. Highway 441 and Interstate 75
several years ago.
Alachua was lucky to have been saved by a Florida
statute preventing adult shops from opening within a
specified distance from a'school. A couple dozen more
feet, literally, between the shop and Santa Fe High
School would mean an adult business would probably
be there today.
Alachua was swift to adopt a moratorium while
simultaneously beating the adult business in court and
then implementing a more legally sound adult
entertainment ordinance. Alachua was wared at the
time that extending the adult entertainment moratorium
would subject the city to serious constitutional
violations. '- '
Although High Springs has dodged the bullet thus


far, it doesn't mean it will in the future.
The dirty little secret in High Springs is that
commissioners are caught between the proverbial rock
and hard place. On the one hand, commissioners
would be negligent if they did not continually adopt a
moratorium, but on the other hand, they all know the
moratorium would not stand up to legal scrutiny.
In High Springs, at this point, the moratorium is
nothing more than a legal hurdle for an adult-business.
And it's a hurdle we believe any adult business
proprietor can easily scale.
The editorial board of Alachua County Today is
perplexed as to why High Springs' legal staff has given
little, if any, regard to the essence of time in this matter.
It wasn't until Alachua County Today discovered and
reported that the moratorium had lapsed earlier this
year that High Springs took corrective action to adopt
yet another ban on sex shops.
The time to act is now.
Adjustments to the ordinance and "fine-tuning" of
legalese can be accomplished at a future date. For the
safety of all High Springs residents, we encourage
commissioners to act expeditiously in adopting the
ordinances.
It may seem a harsh reality, but we believe High
Springs would be legally exposed today should it be
faced with a sex shop. The greatest gains can be
.realized by adopting an adult entertainment ordinance
today rather than relying on blind faith that no one will
challenge the moratorium tomorrow.

Volunteer organizations are the backbone


of youth sports


Santa Fe Babe Ruth Cal Ripken Baseball


Guest Editorial by Hal Brady, Alachua Recreation Center Director


We have had 28 years of youth athletics in Alachua, High
Springs and the unincorporated areas of Alachua County. I
want to thank the volunteer organizations that have served our
community of North Central Florida. High Springs, Alachua
and the unincorporated areas surrounding these two good life
communities have been blessed by volunteer
groups that donate their time to local youngsters.
In return they get no money to administrate and
coach teams. They do receive the satisfaction of
knowing they are making a positive difference to
area youth and local communities.
The first group I want to recognize is the
Santa Fe Babe Ruth Cal Ripken Baseball
League. Twenty-eight years ago this volunteer
program started with volunteer administrators
from Fort White, High Springs, Lacrosse and the
unincorporated areas of Alachua County. This
group was Santa Fe Little League Baseball. Hal Br:
Later the organization became Santa Fe Babe
Ruth Cal Ripken Baseball.
The league was named Santa Fe because of the majestic
Santa Fe River, not only because of the proximity of the
beautiful and winding river, but because the league was not
.intended to be run by a governmental entity, but to work along
with the government of the people served. The league wisely
knew that in carrying out their mission of bringing youth sports
to area children, they would need to raise money within the
program and obtain financial support from Alachua Courity,
and the cities ofAlachua, High Springs, Ft White and Lacrosse.
Santa Fe Baseball League is the oldest Babe Ruth Charter
in North Central Florida, which means they were the first.
Charter organizations popped up everywhere in the late 1980s.
Ft. White developed its own charter. Lake City built a complex
and started its own charter. Then Union county Babe Ruth


formed and they had a complex. Newberry, Archer and
Bronson formed a charter together called Tri-County. Waldo,
Micanopy and Hawthome formed a charter together called
Lake Area. Trenton, Bell and Gilchrist County formed a
charter together called Suwannee Valley. Gainesville came
later and had their own charter. Everybody from
the east coastto Gainesville, Lake City and to the
west coast played Babe Ruth Baseball.
j : Itwas all started by group ofvolunteers, the
seed, who received no money to administrate the
very first league. This group knew they needed
lights to be able to get moms, dads, grandparents
and single hard working people to volunteer.
They raised funds and received help from
Governments in their area and they started with
six teams of 9-12 year olds.
SThey were the first Babe Ruth Baseball
dy group to celebrate with a festival atmosphere.
They have a parade and celebrations for the
grand opening of the Santa Fe Babe Ruth
Baseball season. In 1992, this volunteer group became the first
to host a Babe Ruth World Series in the state of Florida.
Quietly, Santa Fe Babe Ruth, through the recreation
volunteer program, helped many players go to high school, and
then college, and some went to minor leagues and pro baseball.
This organization of volunteers led the way for Santa Fe High
School to win many District and Regional titles and advance to
the State Final Four.- This volunteer league provided an
opportunity to one of the best home run hitters in N.CAA.
baseball, to players who won a N.C.A.A. World Series, and
even players who have won a World Series Championship in
professional baseball.
But no matter what skill level the players, all participants
who have played, and vho will play, in the league want to have


fun. Ninety-nine-percent of the players grow up to go into the
work force and don't e\ er play baseball at the high school,
college or professional level, but they may continue to play ball
for exercise and fun.
Their coaches have helped theseplayers create exciting and
lasting memories, often for a lifetime. So to the coaches of all
skill level children, thank you for the baseball memories.
It takes a special da, mom, grandparent or single adult to
volunteer to serve the community. The people who run the
program work all year round to administrate the program.
They have to satisfy all of the parents, take care of all of the
problems that come up. They have to make it safe; get
uniforms; make schedules; monitorthe fields; get umpires; take,
special fieldtrips; have end of the year get-togethers, get
trophies and conduct fund raisers.
Did I forget anything else they do?
Oh yes, they take care of their own families and they have
real jobs, too.
The Babe Ruth program was and is the foundation of
coaches coaches who leam the game of baseball and then
often develop teams on their own and hand pick talent and
families who want to play together.
The recreation league misses these great people.
And the recreation league then begins the cycle again by
training more coaches and players.
I want to thank the Santa Fe Babe Ruth Cal Ripken
volunteer program for serving High Springs, Alachua and
Alachua County all these years and for having a fall and spring
league of over 20 teams. How different would our
communities have been without them?
Next week the focus will be on the Santa Fe Babe Ruth
Softball volunteer program. So check back here and find out
about the great volunteers in softball.

CATS: FP
Continued from page A
CATS averages about 84 riders
monthly or about 4 riders per day. On
strong months, the small bus has
taken almost 160 riders between
Alachua and Gainesville. But weaker
months, such as April, have seen as
few riders as 41. That number is
calculated on a one-way ride a rider
using the service in one direction in
the morning and back in the other
direction during the aftemoon run
would count as two riders.
Alachua City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr. acknowledged lagging
use of the service.
"Our ridership is somewhat lower
than anticipated, however the
feedback we receive from those that
benefit from the service validates its
importance. to the residents of
Alachua and the surrounding
communities," Watson said
Wednesday.
At cost of about $5,600 to operate
CATS monthly, the City of Alachua
and FDOT are essentially paying over


$66 for each rider. Riders pay a $2
fare for each direction of the service,
hardly covering the costs.
To obtain grant funds from
FDOT, Alachua was required to
submit a marketing plan. Alachua has
spent about $20,000 through
consultants and ad agencies to
advertise CATS. Today, Alachua is
utilizing a low-cost word-of-mouth
campaign to inform potential riders of
the service.
Nearing the one year mark,
CATS doesn't show any upward
trend in ridership numbers from
month to month. Still, Pra said
establishing a transit service is no easy
task.
"To form [a transit services at all
you have to convince the public
you're really going to do it.
"Then you have to train the public
on how to ride."
CATS operates on a route twice
daily, first running in one direction in
the morning, and then in reverse

Alachua's bus service which has been in operation since
September 2006 has yet to reach ridership goals.


during the aftemoon.
CATS begins its daily route at
5:50 a.m. in Gainesville at the
Alachua County Health Department.
It makes another stop at Gainesville's
downtown plaza before proceeding to
Progress Corporate Park in Alachua
and then to several other stops
including Hitchcock's Market and the
Dollar General and Wal-Mart
distribution centers.
While in Alachua, CATS aims to
pickup riders who may need services
in Gainesville. The services takes
riders picked up around Alachua to
the VA. Medical Center and Shands
Hospital areas or to Gainesville's
downtown plaza where they riders
might catch another bus to other areas
of Gainesville.
During the afternoon route,
which starts at 3 p.m., CATS runs the
service in reverse of the moving,
taking riders from Gainesville, back
to Alachua and those at job centers in
SAlachua back to Gainesville.
The focus of CATS has always
been to bring potential employees
from Gainesville to job centers in
Alachua and residents in Alachua to
critical medical services in
Gainesville.
When asked if the city would
consider increasing the number of
runs each day, officials said in a
statement, "The city anticipates that as
the CATS system becomes more
established and experiences increases
in ridership, routes will be made more
frequently, new stops added, and
larger buses utilized."
City officials also hinted that.
expansion of the service may come
by way of a partnership with other
communities such as High Springs.


CATS does not stop at major
shopping centers such as The Oaks
Mall orArcher Road, but city officials
noted that riders could catch another
bus at Gainesville's downtown plaza
to those key shopping locations.
Dollar General and Wal-Mart
distribution center, major employers
in Alachua, do not directly contribute
anything to CATS. The service is
funded solely via FDOT and City
resources and bus fares.
Obtaining additional grant
funding is not an insurmountable task
according to Pra.
"I don't see any reason why
[Alachua] can't put something
positive together.
"It's going to be about working
their town.
"And folks in Alachua know best
how to reach the public."
Archer, a considerably smaller
town than Alachua has operated a
similar transit system for almost two
years. Pra considers Archer's transit
service to be a big success with steady
ridership.
Although ridership on CATS isn't
meeting goals, Watson said, "The
City ofAlachua is extremely pleased
with the success of CATS to date.
"We are very excited about the
service and remain committed to its
ultimate success.
"We recognize that our service
offers employment opportunities for
the unemployed and underemployed
residents in Alachua, Gainesville, and
Alachua County.
"Our service also meets
transportation needs for community
residents that otherwise would not be
able to obtain rides for medical care or
shopping," said Watson.


SPra said FDOT funding of CATS
will come with a new business plan
An ite part of the city.
"Alachua will need to come up
with assurances that if funding is
found, the City will pay half.
"We will look at the performance
io see if it would justify using our
funding to continue the service," Pra
*said.


"In the future, as we address
funding options for CATS, we will be
working with Gainesville and
Alachua County to obtain their
support for this service which is vital
to all of our residents.
"We truly believe the CATS
service is destined for success,"
Watson said.


Watson meanwhile said the City
is prepared to address funding
options.

Troiano said the new software
costing $94,000 will be installed
next January.
The City will also purchase two
handheld data collectors, cradles for
the devices, software, and training
for total of $13,050.
The new software will also
include services for online billing.
Other than helping city staffperform
their jobs more efficiently, the
software will also meanthatthe City
will be more user friendly for
residents and businesses. Troiano,
who has worked for High Springs
since 1998, said citystaffis looking

SHigh Springs City Manager Jim
,Drumm said the old software
worked well for the City and served
its purpose, but has become obsolete
over the last few years.
"It was a dinosaur," said
Drumm referring to the aging
software. .
High Springs Commissioner
Larry Travis said the new software
is definitely needed in City Hall if
High Springs is going to be an
efficient service oriented operation.
"This is something that to me is
,absolutely essential," said Travis.

have to be fiscally sound."
High Springs Mayor Tom
DePeter said a substantial amount of
money in the budget will be used in
paying for the new software, but it's
time for High Springs to make the
investment in the latest technology.
"It's something that we need
and we're going to forward with it,"
said DePeter.
DePeter said the software will
be a welcome addition for City Hall
because the older software hindered
various city departments from being
able to work well together. The
mayor sees the software as a
substantial improvement in how city
staff will conduct business on a day-
to-day basis.
"I believe it will be a drastic
improvement," said DePeter.
Interim High Springs Finance
Director Carol Grivetti is pleased
about the latest in technology for
employees, officials, and citizens.
"It's wonderful that the City has
made a corhmitment to go forward,"
said Grivetti.
Grivetti said High Springs did
its homework in choosing the
software, "There was a lot of
groundwork done before this
occurred."
She said city department heads

While the summer time is

that's not the case with
former Santa Fe High School golfer Brian
Searing. Searing, who just graduated from
Santa Fe this past June, won the Alachua
County Amateur golf tournament held on
July 21 and 22.
The event, which was comprised of
nearly 100 participants from junior to senior
golfers, was held at two locations. The first

years and lettered in the sport for three of
those four seasons. He helped the Raiders

junior and senior seasons and he missed the
state finals cut by a mere one stroke last

Searing, who says his best score at
Turkey Creek was a 64 he shot over a

day of the Alachua County Amateur since
Santa Fe uses the golf course as its home

"The first day was an advantage because

By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Columnist
With the start of the 2007
college football season just
28 days away, I figured I
would .let. everyone know
exactly how this season is
going to play out. I don't
need to read any preseason
magazines and I don't need
to listen to coaches and
players at various conference
media days tell everyone
how they think they will fair
this fall.
While we all know games
aren't played on paper, they
are played on different types
of video game systems. So I
figured since computer
rankings have a say on how
the season ends up with
certain teams playing' fora

results for the upcoming
season.
In the interest of ihe
majority of college footbait
fans in this area, I simulated
the 2007 season with the
Florida Gators. I did not
control/play one down of any
game, I let the computer do
all the work. Now this x as a
random simulation and I can
imagine maybe some of the
outcomes of the games could
be different during other
simulations, but I'm going
with the results I found on
Friday night, July 27.
What I found probably is
not going to be music to thi
ears of any Gator fan, who

in the BCS National
Championship game against
Big Ten Champion Wisconsin.
But everyone in Gainesville can
breathe a sigh of relief,
Wisconsin pounded Tennessee
49-21 to finish off a 13-0 record
with a national title.
As for what could be in store
this fall in Gainesville, here is a
game-by-game breakdown of
what Florida's 2007 campaign
could end up looking like.
In the season opener, the
Gators top Western Kentucky
38-6, piling up 466 yards of
total offense. Tim Tebow, in his
first game as UF's starting
signal caller, threw for .228
yards and a touchdown.
Kestahn Moore ran 29 times for
171 yards and four touchdowns
to earn SEC Player of the Week
honors.
In week two, the Gators roll
Troy 55-14. Tebow passes for
251 yards and totals five
touchdowns on the night, while
safety Dorian Munroe has an
interception return for a
touchdown thus earning him
SEC Player of the Week
recognition. But the real story
of the game was Moore rushing


.for 119 yards and a touchdown
before he fractured his foot,
which sidelined him for the next
six weeks.
As previously mentioned
Tennessee, ranked 14th at the
time, silenced The Swamp and
the third-ranked Gators. Vols'
quarterback Erik Ainge, lit up
the Gators for 206 passing yards
and four touchdowns. Florida
did bounce back the following
week. Tebow was 18-for-30 for
238 yards and three touchdowns
as 12th ranked Florida beat Ole
Miss 28-13. Percy Harvin
caught three balls for 60 yards
and two touchdowns in the UF's
first road win of the season.
But the Gators could not tame
any Tigers during the next two
weeks. Auburn, ranked eighth,
came into The Swamp and left
with a 28-7 victory. UF only had
192 yards of total offense in the
loss. Florida then headed to
Baton Rouge and came home
with a tough 24-21 setback to
LSU. Brandon James's six-yard
scoring run with 1:21 to go
provided the final margin as the
Gators couldn't get over the
hump and fell to 3-3 on the
season. James finished with 127


rushing yards and two scores on
the day.
However, UF traveled to
Lexington Kentucky on
October 20th and was able to
control the Wildcats, 35-10. The
24th ranked Gators amassed
527 yards of total offense.
Tebow threw for 309 yards and
three touchdowns, with James
adding 185 rushing yards and a
touchdown. That victory would
be the start of a five-game
winning streak.
Despite being out-gained 324
yards to 318 yard in total
offense, Florida bit Georgia 33-
25 in its annual brawl in
Jacksonville. Moore had a pair
of touchdown runs in his first
game back from injury. Next
was a 31-19 Homecoming-win
over Vanderbilt, in which
Florida rolled up 516 yards of
total offense. Tebow passed for
360 yards and four touchdowns,
finding Andre Caldwell in the
end zone on two occasions.
Florida then visited its old
friend and former coach Steve
Spurrier and handed the visor-
wearing mentor and his South
Carolina Gamecocks a 31-14
defeat. The 18th ranked Gators


received an eight-catch, 241-
yard and two-touchdown,
performance. from Harvin,
which netted him SEC Player of
the Week honors. Next was a
52-10 cake walk over Florida
Atlantic.
However, Florida State
soured Florida's late season run,
b\ holding on for a 38-30 win at
The Swamp. The 24th ranked
Seminoles led 21-14 at halftime
and 31-21 after three quarters of
play. The 16th ranked Gators
out-gained the 'Noles 604-469
in the loss.
That defeat left Florida with
an 8-4 regular season record and
a 5-3 mark in the SEC.
In a surprise from what has
seemed to be a norm, Florida
had no All-Americans nor had
any players named as a finalist
for any end.of season awards.
Free safety.Kyle Jackson was
named a first team All-SEC
pick, while Harvin (918
receivingg yards), and linebacker
Dustin Doe landed on the
second team. Hawaii
quarterback Colt Brennan took
home the Heisman Trophy.
Regardless, the Gators still
earned a New Year's Day bowl


game in Tampa against the
Nittany Lions. But Joe
Paterno's boys won their
second-straight Outback Bowl
with a two-point win over
Florida, which led 21-11 at
halftime. Trailing 32-24, Tebow
hit Tate Casey with a 27-yard
scoring pass at the 1:38 mark to
make things interesting. But the
ensuing two-point conversion
attempt which would have tied
the game, failed and brought the
Gators' season to an end.
While I love playing NCAA
Football 08 and anticipate its
annual summer release in mid-
July, I learned two things from
simulating this season. First that
I really do have a nice job at
Alachua County Today and
want to thank Adam Boukari for -
giving me the chance to earn
some money by writing about a
video game I really enjoy.
Secondly, is that not to be so
quick to trust computers
because they are wrong
sometimes. Hopefully this is
one of those times, not that I am
biased'or anything.

final decision And. in the end
the choice was BrookLs.
Brooks served as defense e
coordinator tor Buchholz prior
to his hiring at Santa Fe. He
also headed up the Bobcat
ieightlifing program.
Brooks sas since taking o\er
at Santa Fe he's had plenty) of
Soehind-the-scenes work to keep
him bus\
"All the administrative things
\ou hate to do has pretty much
flown b\." explained Brooks
Swho also serNed coaching stints

Rickards and Lincoln. "That

there. That part of it has been
the biggest adjustment for me.
"As far as with the players,
you're ready to get out on the
field, start practicing putting in
offensive plays and defensive
fronts. You're chomping at the
bit for that. I think the kids feel
that way, too."
Brooks has been at Santa Fe
High School for about four
months now and Raider Athletic
Director Michele Faulk has
been impressed with his work
thus far.
"I think he's done a fantastic
job," expressed Faulk. "He's

been very productive I think.
It's been a very productive
summer for him and the football
program."
The first game against
Newberry is less than a month
away with kickoff slated for
August 31 in Newberry. That's
just a few short weeks to
implement and fine tune the
program for regular season play.
Nonetheless, Brooks says his
team's biggest challenge isn't
necessarily on the field.
"The biggest challenge is we
have to mesh together and gel
together as a team," explained


Brooks. "One of the things I
got out of the spring game (a
34-12 loss to Suwannee) was a
sense of individualism and there
weren't enough leaders in the
spring.
"But what I've seen in the
summer there are plenty of guys
that will step up. When I
Originally got here, one of the
things I looked at was the
mental makeup of this team. If
they want to be champions it's
not about your physical talent.
This game is not played as
much with your physical ability
as it is with your mental
ability."

Acura 's ALMS effort iCell: 352-31 i: .86-454-2552
Acura's ALMS effort is just, E TF onla.ltel.net


the beginning


We renewed acquaintances
with Honda/Acura's Robert
Clarke at the recent American
,LeMans Series weekend at
Lime Rock, Conn.
Clarke, known as a true
gentleman in racing circles, was
named general manager of
Honda Performance
Development when the
company established its racing
division in 1993, and he was
named company president in
2005. HPD employs 120 people
and operates out of a 123,000
square-foot building in Santa
Clarita, Calif., that houses
.comprehensive engine R&D,
prototype and production parts
manufacturing, engine
preparation, analysis, dyno/test
cells, machine shop, parts
center and administrative
offices.
Acura's prototype initiative
in ALMS is the first factory
motorsports program for Acura,
the luxury brand of American

Honda Motor Co., in its 20-year
history. Acura made its
competition debut at the 12-
Hours of Sebring this past
March with three LMP2 entries.
To the surprise of everyone -
except, perhaps, the Acura
teams it won its class and
placed second and third overall.
A longtime SCCA racer,
Clarke, 57, sometimes
campaigns in vintage events. As
for the ALMS Acura effort, it is
difficult for Clarke to hide his
enthusiasm.
"This is just the beginning
for Acura in ALMS," said


Clarke. "We'll hopefully move
into the ALMS LMP1 class
based on our success in LMP2,
and this is our overall goal."
Clarke admitted that, unlike
the IRL IndyCar Series events
where.Honda engines power all
of the entries through the 2009
season, he much more
appreciates the true
manufacturer versus
manufacturer atmosphere that
ALMS offers.
"Granted, we win every race
within the IRL, but we also
power the losers."
He further explains that
unlike the Honda 3.5 V-8 Indy
Series engine,, which shares an
assembly agreement with Ilmor
engines in Europe, the entire
ALMS racing engine, a 3.4 V-8,
is a 100 percent HPD effort.
Clarke notes that the chassis
used by two of the three Acura
teams were purchased as
Courage-chassis models, but
now are officially Acura
following much tweaking and
redesign. The third Acura
utilizes a Lola chassis.
"If you want to win in
LMP1, you'll need a
manufacturer-specific chassis to
do so," said Clarke. "When we
move into the LMP1 class,
we'll certainly use our own
developed and tested Acura
chassis."
Clarke also noted that the.
high-end Acura brand is sold
only in North America, with
expansion on the horizon.
"Currently, Acura is
available only in North

ALMS race at Lime Rock with David Brabham behind the wheel.

America,' but we'll be
marketing Acura in both China
and Japan, soon. ALMS. gives
us the opportunity to
Experiment and develop our
technology with.the .prototype
'entries."
.In ending, the last time we
queried Clarke, we asked if
HPD might one day take
delivery of some Holley
'carburetors, pointing to a move
into NASCAR-style racing
(where engines utilize Holley
carbs in Sears Craftsman Truck,


Busch Series and Nextel Cup).
"Holley carburetors are still
not welcome at HPD's R&D
headquarters," Clarke joked. "If
they show up, we'll send them
back. It's our way of saying that
we are more interested in a
higher-tech form of racing."

'I think he's done a good job
v.ith them this summer," said
Faulk. "He kept the program
ali\e during the summer which
%%as fantastic. He had them in
the summer league and they
were still able to get some
things done this summer, they
didn't just completely shut
down."
Once Harris took over the
boys program, the search for
the next girls head coach was
underway. According to Faulk,.
the Raiders received several
applications for the position
and have been conducting
interview\ s throughout the
sunnmer.
"We want somebody who
obviously has a good base of
tbketball know ledge, strong
disciplinarian and someone that
would represent Santa Fe well
with a lot of class," said Faulk
in a May interview. "We
definitely want to fill the


position by early summer
hopefully. We've got to be
patient."
The timeline to hire a coach -
was pushed back due to
difficulties in finding a teaching
position available for a new
hire to fill, reported Faulk.
"We were trying to work it
where we could fill in a teacher
position," Faulk explained.
"But, the teaching spots just did
not open that up so we had to
go a different route. Sometimes
those pieces of the puzzle don't
fit exactly like you need them
to."
The Raider girls basketball
program has been a constant
playoff team, having made the
postseason every year since
1996 and won its fifth-straight
district championship in the
2005-'06 season. Now, the ,
search for the next head coach
could come to an end by next
week.

ball but I did not have a good
day of putting, I three-putted
two or three holes."
On the final day of the event,
Searing made the trip to
Gainesville at the University of
Florida Golf Course, a course
he's played every so often.
With a score of 70 after day
one, he was tied for the lead.
His best score at the golf course
in Gainesville was a 69 from the
same tees.
This time around the recent
high school graduate netted a
score of 75, enough to take
home the win. He not only
received a trophy for his
accomplishment but also a $300
gift card from the University of


Florida Golf Course.
"I wasn't as pleased as I was
with a 70 (at Turkey Creek on
the first day) even though it's a
different course," explained
Searing about playing the Gator
course. "I was hoping to go our
there and shoot 72, two over
par. But, once again I had two
three-puts that day as well."
Searing also competed in the
U.S. Amateur this past weekend
at the University of Florida
Golf Course and posted scores
of 72 and 72 on both days. That
put him five strokes behind the
top golfer at the event. While
Searing may be the one on the
course posting the low scores,
he shares the credit with several
others.
"The Santa Fe High School
program helped me advance my
game more because of all the


golf tournaments we play in,"
said Searing. "Frank Anderson
(head boys golf coach) at Santa
Fe was a great help to me and
my success as well as my
parents who supported me
through thick and thin.
"Jim White is my swing
coach who I've had for about
five years. I wouldn't be where
I am right now without him."
Searing is headed off to
Florida Gulf Coast University
in Fort Myers where' he is
enrolled in the Professional
Golfers Management program.
He says if he does not make the
professional tour then he will
pursue another career with the
PGA.

How much fight is left in


these guys?


Yeah, we talk about boxing
a lot at "A Sporting View," but
that's-because it's the sweet
science, baby.
When you break it down,
it's all you're looking for in
sports. It's the one-on-one
match up. It's Magic Johnson
on Larry Bird. It's Reggie
Jackson stepping in against
Nolan Ryan. It's Bo Jackson
and Brian Bosworth.
And I'm not too hyped up
on the Ultimate Fighting
Championship stuff, folks ...
sorry. At its best, it's a bar fight.
At its worst and this was
typically the case when those
jujitsu guys dominated it
was two guys rolling around on
the canvas. It may have been
scientific, but it just wasn't
sweet. Sure, they're getting
their share of attention, but I
doubt the sport is siphoning off
as many fans from boxing as it
is wrestling.
Be that as it may, boxing


needs a shot in the arm -
something I've been carping
about for a long time. Greedy
promoters have led to an
indigestible alphabet soup of
councils and federations with
watered down contenders and
champions.
To combat this, HBO Sports
has taken the lead in trying to
give us a story line again in
boxing. Its promotion of the De
La Hoya-Mayweather fight,
with the weekly reality
docudrama showing their
training, definitely elevated the
status of the fight in many
people's eyes. And while they
were down at the
welterweights, HBO decided to
stay and stake a claim. Rickey
Hatton, Shane Mosley, Miguel
Cotto in many respects,
HBO hopes these guys will turn
out to be the next generation of
Marvin Hagler, Sugar Ray
Leonard and Tommy Hearns.
Of course, it'd settle for
another Arturo Gatti and
Mickey Ward. And that's the
other unsettling thing about
HBO's latest storyline they
won't let the old stars fade
away. Nothing was harder to
watch than Gatti, one of the


most popular and exciting
fighters of all-time, get his head
handed to him by Alfonso
Gomez a 17-3-2 fighter with
only five knockouts going into
the fight. It was the last fight on
Gatti's HBO contract, and it
was a sad display of going to
the well too many times.
And that's why it was even
weirder watching Jim Lampley
and Larry Merchant exclaiming
gleefully that Oscar De La
Hoya would be moving back to
the welterweight division.
Waiting in the wings, on the
decided downward slope.of his
career, is Roy Jones Jr. He
wants a piece of Felix "Tito"
Trinidad.
"If two people me and
Tito want it to happen, then
nobody is going to be able to
stop it," Jones, 38, told media
'last month. "This would be a
fight that could fill Madison
Square Garden or Yankee
Stadium."
Would it really? Better.yet,
should it?
