Budget cuts mean fewer services for


High Springs citizens


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS High Springs
citizens may soon feel the effects of tax cuts
mandated by the Florida State Legislature.
Cuts in police and fire services, along with
reduction of city staff, loom for the city as
High Springs officials prepare the budget
for the upcoming fiscal year.


During the last legislative session, state
legislators passed a bill requiring cities,
counties, and special districts to freeze tax
collections at the present millage rate and
use the current millage as a basis for an
additional cut of three- to nine-percent.
The present millage rate in High Springs is
6.25. There could be additional cuts if
voters next January decide to implement a


fighter and police positions
:hopping block

"super" homestead exemption that would
provide an estimated $1,100 tax break for
homeowners.
According to the proposed city budget,
one fulltime patrol officer position will be
eliminated for the upcoming fiscal year. In
addition, the currently vacant captain's
position responsible for handling

Motorists traveling through Waldo can catch a glimpse of Bobby Cook's creative quips that often tease about Waldo's designation
as a speed trap. Cook changes the sign about every three weeks, sometimes commenting on current events.


By ALEX NEWMAN
Today Reporter
The signs may not always slow people
down, but they certainly catch the attention
of passing motorists.
Bobby Cook has lived in Waldo for
almost 20 years. For the last six, he's been
painting catchy signs and hanging them
outside his two-story house located in


downtown Waldo.
"I don't think anything will slow them
down," he said. "We're just having fun."
It started when his wife Lucy ran an
antique shop at the former cigar factory.
Cook would paint signs to attract customers
while the shop was still open for business,
It closed down, but new signs keep coming
up about every three weeks.


"The response so was positive that we
had to continue," he said.
Waldo is considered by many to be a
major "speed trap," so many of the signs
urge passersby to'slow down. The building
is located on the main street going through
downtown, known as "Waldo Road," "State
Road 24" or "Kennard Street." The area

ALACHUA A proposal to
increase the' City of Alachua's
Communication Service Tax
(CST) was met with dismay by
some during a meeting
Monday.
Commissioners reviewed a
proposal that would increase
the CST from 3.8 percent to 5.1
or 5.22 percent on all
communication services. The
change would mean both
residential and business
customers would pay an
additional $1.42 in taxes on
every $100 of
telecommunication charges.
Local and long distance
telephone service, cable,
satellite, cellular and other
services are all subject to the
tax.
The move comes after the
State of Florida changed
property tax laws :and limited


how much ad valorem tax
revenue communities can,
collect. And Alachua is not
alone. Communities across
Florida are creatively tweaking
mechanisms to increase tax
revenues as a result of the
state's recent mandate.
Alachua Commissioner
Jean Calderwood noted her
concern about the impacts an
increased CST would have on
senior citizens. Alachua
Resident Richard Thomas said
he too was concerned with
seniors having to pay the tax
increase.
Calderwood pressed staff to
see if an exemption to the tax
increase could be created for
seniors, although it seems
unlikely, according to City
Attorney Marian Rush.
Political activist Charles
Grapski argued that adopting
the proposed tax increase
would mean Alachua was

equipment and activities common to most print

added sweetness, are truly
the best I have ever had: The

consistency that makes
butter unnecessary. The
corn bread must be,a family
secret as well moist, with
chunks of corn and was that
cheese??? Terrific!!!!!
We also tasted their
famous shrimp, fried to
perfection and sampled no
less than four of their
irresistible home baked
desserts. This is my new
favorite restaurant. I wish
they had one just like it in

Local agencies stress bike



helmet safety to preschoolers


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Last week
Lees' preschool and nursery
was filled with typical days of
learning about numbers and
words, along with playing
games. However, last Friday
morning children learned more
than numbers and words, as
they got an inside look at
bicycle safety and the
importance of using a helmet.
Officials from both the
Epilepsy Association of Central
Florida and the Suwannee
River Area Health Education
Center (AHEC) fitted the
children with bicycle helmets
and stressed the dangers of
riding a bike without a helmet.
To drive the point home to
children about how serious
head injuries may occur when
riding a bike without a helmet,
an egg was thrown to the
ground and the contents
splashed over the floor.
Program Coordinator for the
Epilepsy Association Audrey
Mullett said it's important to
teach children helmet safety at
a young age because there're in
a period of their lives where
they can be easily influenced
and are able to use that
influence throughout childhood'
and into adulthood. According
to Mullett many cases of
epilepsy involve head injuries

Children at the school were taught the importance of wearing a
helmet while riding a bicycle.


and there's a good chance bike
crashes without wearing a
helmet causes epilepsy.
According to Katie Hedsock
df the Suwannee River AHEC,
one out of three people who
suffer from epilepsy had a
serious head injury. When
talking to children at the
preschool both Mullett and
Hedsock surveyed 30 children
and discovered that only five of
them wore a helmet while
riding a bike. Florida State law
requires children ages 16 and
younger to wear a helmet when
operating a bike.
Mullett said cost plays a
factor on why children don't

use a helmet. She added
children think they don't look
cool when wearing a helmet,
along with an attitude that no
accident will happen to them.
Hedsock said kids often don't
wear helmets because their
parents didn't grow up wearing
helmets when riding a bike and
they haven't stressed the
dangers of not wearing a
helmet.
Lees' Preschool teacher
Juanita Horn said the helmet
fitting and safety instruction
was an effective tool for
children learning bicycle safety.
She added that the egg
demonstration and the
possibility of getting caught by
a police officer for not wearing
a helmet quickly caught the
children's attention.
Four-year-old Jahiem Foye
agreed with Horn, saying, "It
reminds you to put your helmet
on."

having the majority of customers
from the western most portion of
the region as a reason for locating
the business in Newberry.
Hendrix said Daba takes
.satisfaction in customer
satisfaction.
"We take pride in doing a
good job for them," said Hendrix.
"We like to make sure we do
things right."
Hendrix and Patton started the
business in 1998 out of a barn in
Alachua designing t-shirts for a
Vacation Bible School and
friends. The concept caught on
and the demand for printed work
grew. Patton has been in the
design business for most of her
life, while Hendrix worked for 35
years in the health field as a
medical laboratory technologist.
Patton quipped that Hendrix
envisioned that the design and
printing business would be easy.
"She thought it was really cool
until, she knew of the hard work
involved," said Patton.
Hendrix said when the
business first started she helped
company financially, while Patton
used her creative talents to make
the company a success.


"I had the financial backing, ,
while Dana had the know-how,"
said Hendrix.
Hendrix is Vice President of
the Newberry/Jonesville
Chamber of Commerce and
President of the Newberry Main
Street Program, along with
serving on the city's Recreation
Advisory Board. Patton is a
member of the Newbeny Garden
Club. Hendrix is a strong believer '
that businesses working together
with Newberry Jonesville
Chamber of Commerce and the
Newberry Main Street Program .
benefit the entire community.
Hendrix still runs the business
end of the company along with
maintaining the printing
equipment. As one who loves to
keep the creative juices flowing,
Patton relishes the challenges that
designing presents.
"The sky's the limit to do
whatever you want," said Patton.
According to Patton the most
fun she has in designing is having
customers give her the freedom to
use her creativity in a way that is
satisfying and pleasing to -the
customer.
In the field of design and
printing Hendrix has become
accustomed to daily challenges.
"It's not boring. There is
something new everyday," said
Hendrix.


Ask Your Dentist byDougas M.


Cracked tooth


Q: How does a tooth
crack? '
A: You'd be surprised .by
how much pressure the
average adult exerts when
biting. It's 150 to 200 pounds
per square inch. So even
though tooth enamel is one of
the hardest materials in your
body, when certain forces are
aligned, a tooth can crack. An
obvious crack will of course,
send a person immediately to a
dentist. But. a hairline crack
may leave a person noticing
only sensitivity to temperature
change and to biting pressure.
Any tooth with a weakness is
subject to cracking. Throw in a
propensity for chewing hard


objects like ice cubes, pencils,
hard candy, popcorn kernels,
and you have the alignment
mentioned above.
The hairline fracture of a
cusp one of the points on a
tooth is not uncommon. If a
crack is small enough that is
has not compromised the pulp
chamber, it probably is not
necessary to perform a root
canal. A solution would be to
cap the cusp. You should
inform your dentist quickly
about any change in sensation
in your mouth. As with any
dental problem, the sooner you
take care of a cracked tooth,
the better.

More than loaves and fishes


The miracle of the feeding of four
thousand in Saint Mark, chapter 8,
may sound fainiliar. It is similar to a
miracle Christ performed when He
fed the five thousand with just five
loaves and two fishes. Saints
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John all
wrote about the feeding of the five
thousand. But only Saints Matthew
and Mark wrote about the miracle of
Christ's feeding four thousand with,
...seven loaves and a few small
fishes." What is so important about
this miracle that St Mark would
record both? Let's compare the two
and see why.
Beginning with the feeding of the
five thousand:
Jesus and the apostles were at a
desert place around Nazareth, so itwas
on Jewish soil and it was well known
as the place where Jesus and His
followers had been many times. The
multitude followed them there so
Jesus could teach them. When Christ

Now, the feeding of the four


thousand:
Jesus an


John E.

Analican


d the twelve disciples
were around
SDecapolis, which
was on Gentile soil,
across the Sea of
Galilee from the
lands of the Jews.
This multitude also
followed them, so
that Jesus could
teach them. They
had been following
Christ for three days.
Jesus had
compassion on them
Sas they had nothing
to eat and.many had


iainesville. far to travel to return
if the home. Jesus asked
Episcopal His disciples how
many loaves of bread
they had and they
replied, "seven." Jesus took them,
gave thanks and broke the loaves, and


the disciples distributed them. They
also had a few small fishes. Jesus
blessed and divided the fishes among
them all. They all ate and were filled.
When they were finished they
collected seven baskets full of
fragments ofthe fishes.
The similarities between these
two miracles were that Jesus took
small amounts of food and fed
extremely large groups of people. A
point Saint Mark brought out was the
importance of the baskets of food left
in each place. When they were on
Jewish soil there were twelve baskets
collected. In the New Testament the
number twelve recalls the tribes of
Israel. Then when they were on
Gentile soil, they collected seven
baskets of food that remained and
seven (or seventy) were the peoples of
the Gentile world.
The blessing and breaking of the
bread and the distribution to the people


is another point It is seen as the
institution of the Holy Communion
we celebrate each Lord's Day. The
feeding of the multitudes was
considered a sign of the Messiah-the
Messiah was to be a prophet like
Moses, who had fed the people ofGod
with bread from heaven, and also like
Elisha, upon whom Elijah's mantle
had fallen, who had fed a hundred
men with twenty 'loaves of barley'.
.Both Moses and Elijah were
prototypes of the Messiah and so they.
stood on either side of Jesus on the
Mount ofthe Transfiguration.
The feeding of the multitudes was
the farewell Messianic feast of Christ's
ministry in Galilee, which can be
compared to the Last Supper of Jesus
and the disciples. We must also notice
the compassion of our Lord in
thinking of the physical needs of the
people; He would not let them go
hungry or worry about their daily


bread. His act of feeding them can be
compared with His teaching: "...your
heavenly Father knoweth that ye have
need of all these things." (Matthew
6:32)
What Jesus takes and blesses,
however little it may seem, if it is
offered to Him entirely, without
reservation, it can become more than
abundant in fulfilling His purpose.
Such are the inexhaustible riches of
Christ that the oblations surrendered
into His hands are never diminished
by being used, but are increased
beyond all human imagining. And
more remains, after the satisfaction He
gives, than was ever offered to begin
with. So, in Holy Communion, the
grace of our Lord is never spent, but is
renewed and expended ever more
abundantly with every oblation of
ourselves and all that we possess.

gets so much traffic and so
many speeders because it is the
route to Gainesville from U.S.
301.
"Waldo Love it or leave it
Slowly," reads one of the
signs that was once hung
outside of the colorfully
painted house.
Above the sign, a small
American flag waves in the
breeze. Behind it hangs the
same sign that has always been
there it reads "One Nation
Under God." If you see that
one, it means' Cook is busy
painting a new one, he said.
"I have no illusions of
grandeur," Cook said. "It
probably doesn't affect traffic
much, but the locals enjoy it
and it's a lot of fun."
During holidays, motorists
will find signs proclaiming
Merry Christmas or Happy 4th
of July, depending on the time
of year. They also advertise the
local library or special events
from time to time, Cook said.
"'Tis the Season fbr giving,
and forgiving," read one of the
Christmas signs.
"Anything you put up on
this corner, people are going to
read," he said. "When people
drive by, they often wave or
give us a thumbs-up."
The reactions are usually
positive although one of the

in the county. But Grapski is mistaken
according to. the Florida Department of
Revenue which reports that only Lacrosse
has' a lower CST rate at 3.42 percent.
Newberry's current rate is 4.2 percent.
Meanwhile, High Springs, Hawthorne,
.Waldo, Archer are all set at 5.2 percent.
The City of Gainesville charges 5.32
percent while Micanopy comes in at 5.1
percent.
Increasing the CST from 3.8 to 5.1
percent would generate an estimated
$82,000 in revenue to the City.
Before Alachua can raise its CST above
5.1 percent, it must exempt .any
communications services providers from


first signs was stolen, Cook
said.
"I worry about running out
of ideas one day, so if anybody
has any, be sure to let me
know," he said.
People have told him that
they've heard talk about the
signs in other states, Cook said.
"We get calls at City Hall
asking him to keep up the good
work," said Kim Worley, the
city manager who has helped
Cook with a few ideas.
"Everybody looks forward
to seeing the .new ones," she
said.
The Baptist church down
the road also has catchy signs
for passersby, including one
that read "Moses was a basket
case."
The original idea to put the
sign up came from a well
known Gainesville vacuum
cleaner store that has a large
sign on the comer ofN.W. 23rd
Avenue and-6th Street.
"He's been doing it for 20
years," Cook said about the
Gainesville sign. "They can
use, a lot of words because
people have to stop at the red
light, we can only use about 15
for ours to be effective."
Even though the signs may
not slow people down, it's the
thought that counts.

final decision to be made Aug. 20


paying permit fees.
Currently Alachua charges $55 for
permits to do any construction repair work,
dig up or disturb any street or right of way.
In all, the city collected about $300 in such
fees over the last year. Excepting
communications services providers from
paying that fee would allow the city to raise
the CST to 5.22 percent, .12 percent more
than if it kept the current permitting system
in place.
While the .12 percent appears small, it is
estimated the city would see additional
revenues of $7,600.
Grapski accused city officials, of
attempting to shift the tax burden from
"corporations" to residents by exempting


communications services providers from
the $55 permit fee. But residents and
businesses would pay the tax and
commissioners and staff noted that $7,600
would go much further in shoring up city
budgets than would $300 in permits.
Commissioners suggested they might
raise the CST to less than the maximum.
Mayor Gib Coerper said, "We do have a
revenue shortfall." But Coerper added that
he was reluctant to raise the CST to the
maximum allowed by law.
Final action on the proposed increase is
expected at the next commission meeting
scheduled for Aug. 20.

Anhydrous ammonia



theft leads to arrest


Today Staff Report
ALACHUA The Alachua
Police Department (APD) on
July 31 arrested two men for
their role in the theft of
anhydrous ammonia.
According to an APD report,
officers were conducting a
business check of Copeland
Farms at about 10:47 p.m.
Officers saw a small plume of
vapor behind a tank. After
further investigation the
officers observed a small.
propane tank attached to the
farm tank in what was an
attempt to transfer anhydrous
ammonia. Police arrested both
33-year-old Richard Barrinea
and 51-year-old Danny Ketter


on charges of theft of
anhydrous ammonia and
burglary.
APD said Ketter is a-
Georgia resident. It's unknown
at this time where Barrinea is
from. According to officials,
additional charges are pending.
The agricultural community
uses anhydrous ammonia as a
low cost, highly effective
nitrogen-based fertilizer.
However, in recent years it has
become a popular ingredient in
manufacturing the illegal drug,
methamphetamine, and farm
tanks have been targeted for the
anhydrous ammonia.

NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS

The City of High Springs has applied for and received a
CDBG Grant for the purpose of Housing Rehabilitation. This
program is designed to perform general code related repairs
and improvements for low and low to moderate-income
homeowners. If you, or a contractor you know, are a
licensed housing rehabilitation contractor and are interested
in bidding for this work, please call 352-381-1975 to request
an application for the High Springs program. All applications
will be accepted up to 2PM on August 31, 2007.

Items eligible for repair include roofs, heating systems;
plumbing, electrical and other code related housing systems.
Contractors must provide proof of workers compensation (or
exemption of) and liability insurance to be considered for this
program. Details for participation and program rules and
regulations will be discussed at this meeting.

If you have any questions regarding this notice, please call

position responsible for
handling administrative duties
will remain vacant. Instead, a
newly formed lieutenant's
position will assume
administrative and investigative
duties along with holding lead
detective duties at the
department.
Two full-time firefighter
positions will be eliminated due
to the cuts. In addition, High
Springs is implementing a
hiring freeze and consolidating
the parks and recreation
department into the department
of public works.
High Springs City Manager
Jim Drumm said citizens should
expect less maintenance of city
parks and a slower response
time from both fire and police
services. Drumm explained
that the current average police
response time is two minutes,
but with a reduced police force
the average response time may
now take approximately five
minutes.
High Springs resident Dick
Williams is disappointed police
patrol will be reduced,
especially since he believes the
department is understaffed.
"It's ridiculous. We're
talking about public safety,"
said Williams.
Drumm said the past few
weeks haven't been easy for
him as he was preparing the
budget and deciding which
services had to be trimmed.
"It was difficult to look at
what we had to do," said
Drumm.
"The budget is lean, but it's
balanced and fiscally
responsible," said the City
Manager.
Drumm pointed out the
decline in the housing market
and the economy were also
contributing factors in trimming
the budget along with the
Florida State 'Legislature's
desire to downsize local
government.
High Springs Commissioner
Jim Gabriel said he's proud of
the reinvestment High Springs
has made to the community in


------


the last few years, However,
Gabriel feels with the proposed
budget cuts to services the city
will take a few steps backward.
Gabriel said it's a local
government's obligation to
provide the best possible
services to its citizens.
"I believe municipal
government is where the rubber
meets the road," said Gabriel.
High Springs Mayor Tom
DePeter commented that it's a
burden on a city's budget to
maintain a high level of
services to its citizens on a
limited budget that small cities
such as High Springs have to
operate.
High Springs Commissioner
Larry Travis is hopeful the mill
rate for the upcoming year will
be in the area of 5.75. "We do
owe our people a chance of
some relief," said Travis.
Travis feels the trimmed
budget will present the city the
opportunity to curb spending,
while maintaining a quality
level of services.
"We all can tighten our belts
and still have the level of
services we need," said Travis.
Gabriel said the
Commission in the coming
months has to decide what

High stakes, big


rewards in Alachua



transit system


system, better known as CATS, is lagging desperately
in ridership numbers. But the public transportation
S program which carries riders between Alachua and
Gainesville is still in its infancy and deserves
adequate time to mature before it's placed on the chopping block.
Alachua County Today reported last week that on average CATS
handles four riders daily. The number of riders 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 afternoon run
would count as two riders.
At about $5,600 per month to operate CATS, each rider is
costing about $65. In other words, a rider taking the service in the
morning and then the afternoon is costing about $130 a day, but
paying fares totaling just $4. And herein lies the inherent pitfalls
and benefits of public transit.
Operating a public transit service such as CATS comes with
fixed costs. Whether it carries one rider or 60 each day, a bus
service will still cost about the same to cover a given route. With
low ridership, CATS appears at first glance to be a gross waste of
public funds. Still, public transit systems, like CATS, exist across
the nation, many of which never make back on rider fares what they
cost to operate.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is keenly
aware of the hefty financial burden associated with a public transit
system operating routes between Alachua and Gainesville.
Remember, FDOT awarded a nearly $84,000 grant to the City of
Alachua for implementation of CATS.
Like any wise venture, costs are weighed against benefits to
determine feasibility and desirability. Costs can clearly be
calculated, but numerous intangible benefits resulting from a public
transportation system are not quantifiable. However, we can say
there are many known advantages of public transit, not the least of
which is getting employees to and from their place of employment
and patients to and from critical medical appointments. And the list
goes on.
What many people don't know is that research shows the
benefits of public transportation to society as a whole greatly
outweigh those to riders. A report by the Community Transportation
Association of America (CTAA) suggests many compelling
considerations of positive and often overlooked impacts of public
transit.
While the argument is frequently made that motorists paying gas
taxes should not have to fund public transportation, it lacks insight
and logic. Economists have shown that fuel and other automobile-
related taxes paid by motorists don't even come close to covering
the costs associated with maintaining the roadway network.
Public transit leads to reduced congestion for those individuals
who choose to or must drive themselves. According to CTAA, bus
transit is 37 times safer than automobiles when measuring fatalities
per passenger mile traveled. Finally, the cost to society of building
additional.roadways far exceeds the cost of a public transportation
system.
We should be establishing a multimodal transportation system
which encourages commuters to consider taking the bus. People are
rather reluctant to give up the freedom that comes with driving one's
self to and from work each day. Convenience often trumps
practicality and costs. And convincing motorists to hang up the
keys and hop on the bus in many cases is like asking an NRA
member to forget about the 2nd Amendment.
To encourage additional ridership on CATS, we suggest that the
City of Alachua include direct stops from Alachua to major'
shopping hubs such as The Oaks Mall and the Archer Road area.
While stops in shopping districts is secondary to essential needs
such as employment districts, it may be the catalyst that drives
awareness and ridership in the right direction.
A city-wide survey of residents in Alachua seems to be in order
in determining transportation needs of potential commuters.
SPerhaps additional stops would generate new and consistent riders
without increasing costs.
The editorial board of Alachua County Today believes Alachua's
CATS program should continue to operate albeit with a financial
deficit. While ridership fares may never cover the costs associated
with the service, ridership levels should meet realistic goals over the
? next year or two.

In the last seven years, great coaches and
players have gathered great skill level players and
"formed one team to compete against the best
players in the state. For these individual players,
the cost is sometimes 10 times greater than the cost
of the recreation regular season, or the cost of all
stars. This year for the first time, some players and
coaches are playing both. For these parents, I hope
it was a great experience and not as expensive.
We are currently working to team up with our
middle schools to form a Middle School Softball
and the Santa Fe Babe Ruth girls' softball program
to support High Springs Community School and
Mebane Middle School.
High Springs and Alachua have sent a good
number of girls who are now young women to
many colleges and my hat is off to them. Other
former players have grown up to become
businesswomen, school teachers, health care
professionals, workers of all sorts, mothers and
youth coaches.
It's high time for a well overdue thanks to the
volunteers who made it fun for over 20 years in the
Alachua, High Springs, Lacrosse and the
surrounding area and made it possible for the girls
in these communities to participate in a game they
all love softball.


Room for redemption?


I find it interesting that our
society tends to be very unforgiving.
In an age of instant gratification
where most of us seem to be
interested only in what people have
done for us lately, it often takes just
one mistake or faux pas for an
individual to,be castigated by those
around him or her.
Famous cases
abound from the
religious sector,
where hugely
influential Christian
pastors have fallen .,
hard and fast from
grace following
embarrassing
scandals. Jimmy
Swaggart and Jim
Bakker, two popular
televangelists in the
1980s, both suffered
sexual scandals that DAVID W
em b o d i e d Todav R


hypocrisy.
Likewise, last year
Ted Haggard, pastor of a .14,000-
member church in Colorado Springs,
stepped down following his
admittance of drug use and
participation in an adulterous
homosexual relationship.
These men disappointed
numerous people who trusted them
and looked to them for leadership
and guidance. Does that mean,
however, that they no longer have
lessons to teach or that they should
live the rest of their lives with a
stigma?
Apart from specific examples,
societal trends also indicate the
difficulties we have forgiving. The
divorce 'ate in the United States is


over 50-percent, which can be
blamed on many factors, not the least
of which is our frequent inability to
reconcile our differences and move
beyond our partner's mistakes, as
well as our own.
One can argue that the vast
majority of wars are fought because


VISENER
reporter


groups of people refuse
to forgive each other.
Tensions between
religions have led to
acts of violence that
spark war instead of
forgiveness across
history. Debatably, the
current war on
terrorism could
conceivably be avoided
if instead of striking out
with force, the Western
World fought hatred
with love by
boosting the aid
given to the poorer
nations, where


hatred and
resentment are fed by rampant
poverty and ignorance.
I am also somewhat taken aback
by an attitude I've witnessed in many
people which labels others as
inherently evil. Understandably
grieving and heartbroken families
who have suffered the loss of loved
ones due to murder have gone on
virtual crusades to see the destruction
of the perpetrator of the crime.
Members of the families sometimes
claim they can not have closure until
the guilty party is executed. I can
understand the rage and anger these
people feel, but there is great danger
in labeling others as "evil" instead of
recognizing that qie potential for evil


exists in all ofus, and only some ofus
act on it. Can true closure be found
by ending another life, or will the
hatred remain in a sedated form in the
hearts of the hurting until they learn
to forgive the people who have
wronged them?
Whether you proscribe to. a
Judeo-Christian worldview or not, I
think there is wisdom to be found for
our' culture in the lives of the
characters of the Bible. Almost
without fail, every individual
considered a "hero" in the Bible
committed egregious mistakes in his
or her lifetime, with the notable
exceptionof Jesus. Moses was a
murderer with a temper and knack
for stubbornness, yet remained
faithful to God and brought his
people out of slavery. David was an
adulterer and a murderer, yet was
dearly loved by God and was the
greatest ruler of Israel. Earlier in his
life, Paul went on rampages to
imprison and kill every Christian he
could find, but then became the
greatest missionary the faith has ever
had.
The lesson to be learned is that all
of us make mistakes, yet those
mistakes do not make us inherently
bad people. Our mistakes sometimes
cost us-in extreme cases to the
point where some of us lose our
freedom due to jail sentences-but
that does not eliminate the
importance our lives can have. We
cheat ourselves and each other when
we refuse to forgive others who have
wronged us but are repentant We
can learn the unique lessons they can
teach us only when we forgive and
accept them for who they are, rather
than for the wrongill actions they


have committed.
If you profess to truly believe in
the notion of forgiveness, then you
must make room in your heart for the
possibility of redemption to have a
place in your everyday life with all
whom you encounter.

Panthers start anew


SNewberry opens
volleyball practice
under new coach
Michele Bisaccia
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
With a history that has been
nothing short of dismal, the
Newberry High School
volleyball-team opened practice
on Monday in search of a fresh
start under new head coach
Michele Bisaccia.
The Panthers have not been
to the regional playoffs since
1982 and won only five
matches from 2001 through
2004, which included a winless


2003 campaign. During the last
two seasons under Jessica Ross,
who resigned as coach in May,
Newberry posted a 1-18 mark
in 2005 before going winless at
0-23 last fall.
While the
past has not
been a good
one for
Newberry,
Bisaccia
does not
want to hear Bisaccia
anything
about the Panthers' previous
seasons.
"This is a new year, I don't
want to know what happened
last year. I have only heard


negative things," said Bisaccia.
"I want them to have good
attitudes and I don't want any
of last year's drama to hang
over to this year."
Bisaccia, who has never
played or coached volleyball
before, met her new team on
July 26. Through the first two
practices earlier this week, the
Panthers have worked on
conditioning while. also
focusing on the fundamentals of
volleyball. Bisaccia, who is also
Newberry's new softball coach
and a former softball player at
the University of Arkansas and
at the University of Florida, has'

Bonds knows the truth and he's

Taking all bets
-. It appears that a scandal may
',not be that far from surfacing in
the professional tennis world. It
has been reported that there was
,some suspicious gambling on a
!inatch that,took place last week
'between Martin Vassallo
'Arguello of Argentha and
Nikolay Davydenko of Russia.
Apparently, there were $7
million in wagers placed on the
;-natch in favor of Arguello.
:;Suspicious? Well, that is a lot
,,of money to be placed on a

match. But, what makes the
betting look suspicious is that
Arguello is ranked 82 in the
world while Davydenko is
No.5.
Why would anyone put that
amount of money on a played
ranked so far down from his
opponent? It gets worse. Most
of the betting was made after
Davydenko won the first set.
So, let's review. There was $7
million, on a match. It was in
favor of a player who is ranked
77 spots beneath his opponent.
And, a lot of the betting for
Arguello to win took place once
Davydenko won'the first set.
This looks pretty suspicious.
Well, Betfair the online
company the bets were' placed
with voided all the bets on the
match, perhaps due to the
suspiciousness of the gambling.
Guess what? Davydenko lost
because he had to retire due to
foot injury so the No 82 player
in the world, .krgtello. did \ in
This doesn't look good at all
for Davydenko or the ATP.

Football is here
Yeah, football is just around
the corner. The Hall of Fame
game just took place Sunda)


and NFL preseason games will
kick off in full force this
weekend. College football
kicks off for the University of
Florida in just a month.
The Gators will look to
defend their national title and
face off against Western
Kentucky on Sept. 1. Florida is
currently ranked No.3 in the
USA Today Coaches Poll, just
one spot behind LSU. USC is
in the top spot once again.
The Gators play in Baton
Rouge, LA against the Tigers on
Oct. 6. Circle that date on the
calendar because it's going to
be a season-making or season-
breaking game for both teams.
The SEC has six teams
ranked inside the top 20. That's
great representation' from
what's going to be by far the
toughest conference in college
football this year. Playing in
the SEC has its prestige, but it
also doesn't afford a team any
down time throughout the
season. Eern game is a grind.
But, it's a grind we all
welcome. so long as gridiron

know what is expected of them.
"They need to give me 100
percent all of the time no matter
what and they need to
communicate with me and as a
team," Bisaccia said. "I've also
told them to enjoy themselves.
If you're not enjoying yourself
when you're playing a sport it
is not worth it."
The coach said that 22 girls
have come out for practice thus
far, although she expects a few
more players to join her
program in the coming weeks.
Bisaccia is still in the early
stages of trying to get to know
her players and said that she
will separate the group into a
varsity and a junior varsity
team after more practice time.
"We are going to do
everything together and so far
attitudes have been great,"
Bisaccia said. "They have been
working hard."
Helping Bisaccia is assistant
coach Kelly Harris, a former
volleyball player at Oak Hall.
"She has been really great
and has been a tremendous
help," Bisaccia said. "She has


been coming to me with great
ideas."
The Panthers lost just two
seniors from last year's squad
and Erin Czerenda, Anna
Thrasher and Lavarsha Nattiel
are among the returning players
who have come out for the
2007 season.
Bisaccia said she believes the
first couple of weeks of practice
should focus on fundamentals
and that's exactly what the
Panthers have been working on.
"We have worked on passing
and we did some setting and
blocking," said the coach. "We
have worked on fundamentals
of taking the correct angle to
the ball and staying low."
While there is plenty of work
still to be done before
Newberry's season opener
versus Bronson on Monday,
August 27, the coach likes what
she has seen already.
"I'm definitely pleased," said
Bisaccia. "I'm excited, I
definitely have some athletes
and I'm pleased with the
attitudes."

"We realize this whole season
is a marathon, not a sprint,"
leveled Brooks. "The main
thing we wanted to get out of
this is just something new. We
want to change the attitude of
Santa Fe High School and the
way these kids look at football."
The past week has seen some
of the hottest days of summer.
Brooks says his coaching and
training staffs monitor the heat
and the players closely. The
players are weighed before and
after practice in addition to'
hydration before, during and
after practice. Brooks reported
that if the high temperatures do
continue to rise his team may
change their practice times
accordingly.
Santa Fe has been busily
working on shaking off some of
the rust and putting in place the
offense and defense.
"Right now, it's the
installation of the offense and
defense and somewhat of a
refreshment of the spring," said
Brooks. "We've got to get back
to speed. With the heat as bad it
is, it helps conditioning take
care of itself somewhat; we still
need to condition.'"
The two-a-day camp
atmospherewill run through the
end of next week. Brooks says
over the next couple of weeks
he wants to get in 20 practices.
In addition to the installation of
Brooks' system, the Raiders are

settling up their depth chart
over the next week. Brooks
contends that while on the field
work is important, the changing
of the team's attitude a team
that went 1-9 last season is
crucial.
"The overall attitude is good
and the change is a slow process
and it's like I told our coaching
staff, it can't come from us it's
got to come from the kids," said
Brooks. "You have to
understand that in order for us
to be successful, the attitude has
to change. Santa Fe has been
known for Raider Pride and we
have to get this group of young
men to understand what that
means."

in their spring game and had a
good summer in the weight
room followed by another
beneficial team-bonding
experience at a Fellowship of
Christian Athletes Team Camp.
Newberry has kept its
momentum going through the
opening two days of practice.
"Practice has been great,"
said Keeler, whose club will go
through two practice sessions
each day during this first week
of practice. "We have had four
practices and we've had every
kid at every practice. We've
gotten a lot of work done and
I'm pleased."
The coach said his group of
30 varsity players and 24
junior-varsity players have
primarily worked on the
passing game. with seven on
seven drills. Per the Florida
High School Athletic
Association rules, the first three
days of practice are non-
contact. Teams can put on the
pads starting Thursday.


"We were dying to get on the
practice field and now we're
dying to get into pads on
Thursday," said Keeler, who
finished last season with 30
players on the varsity roster.
"I'm really encouraged by the
numbers, it is nice to have that
many kids."
Newberry will operate a
practice schedule of 8:30-11:30
a.m. and 5-8 p.m. each day for
the rest of the opening week,
before having practice from 5-8
p.m. each day the following
week. Once school starts on
Monday, August 20th, the
Panthers will have practice
from 3:30-6 p.m. each day.
"This is a little more mature


group this year," said the coach.
"They know what they're
supposed to do. I like the
leadership of this group."
Newberry will host Taylor
County for its fall classic on
Friday, August 24th at 7:30 p.m.
before welcoming Santa Fe for
the season opener the following
Friday.
"Our 'goal was to get
Newberry back where they used
to be highly competitive,"
Keeler said. "If we're going to
build this program this is the
year we need to carry on the
tradition."

Pit chatter


At the United Racing Club
event held at Selinsgrove, Pa's ultra
quick half-mile, originally designed
by Joie Chitwood, we had time to
chat with former sprint-car
champion Kramer Williamson.
Williamson, who led the 25-lap
feature for 24 3/4 laps only to be
passed by first-time URC winner
Joey Biasi coming off Tum 4 for the
checkered, said his 24-year-old son,
Kurt, is now working for Kyle
Petty's team doing shock absorbers.
Kurt used to work for Penske
Shocks, and I remember back in
1986 I visited Williamson's shop in
Palmyra, Pa., while doing a feature
for "Circle Track" 'magazine on
"The Pink Panther," and there was
4-year-old Kurt running around a
small dirt track in the family
backyard in a go-kart-style midget
racer. My how time flies, as Kurt is
little no more. Good luck at Petty
Enterprises!
***
Nostalgia Drag Racing is more
popular than ever, as the 2007 York
U.S. 30 Nostalgia Reunion held in
York, Pa, and Beaver Springs.
Dragway near Lewistown, Pa., was,
a huge success. The on-trackportion
of the event was held at Beaver
Springs and drew more than 400
cars. Big names from the past-
included Bruce Larson, Bud Faubel,
"Ohio" George Montgomery, Joe
Jocono, Ken Montgomery, Bob
Harrop, Linda Vaughan, "Jungle


Pam" Hardy, Judy Lilly, Wally Bell
and many more. Faubel, dressed in a
bright blue blazer, tie and white
pants with polished shoes, was
offered a chance by Bob Goss, the
owner of his former 1964 Hemi
"The Honker," to "drive" it down
the track.
Unbeknownst to all, the car had
some transmissionwoes and didn't
have a high gear. Faubel, with his
wife in the passenger seat, nailed the
"Honker" at the start and took off on
what looked to be a full-bore pass.
With the car smoking heavily by
half-track, owner Goss, who bought
the car from Faubel in 1965 for
$3,500, no doubt was cringing as the
now 78-year-old Faubel finally
lifted just before the finish. He still
ran in the high 11's.
***
Kyle Busch is a hot property as
recent talk over NASCAR way is
whom Kyle will sign with. Will it be
Roush-Fenway? Ganassi?
Evemham? Not in this book. I'll go
with either Childress or Joe Gibbs,
as chatter of J.J. Yeley's "removal"
from the No. 18 may be true. And
speaking of Ray Evemliam, word is
leaking out that he will sell his
Dodge team lock, stock and barrel
and then become crew chief (either
with the new owner or elsewhere) or
team up with a big-name partner,
like Jack Roush did. Thus far, '07
has been very disappointing for
Evemham.

Other talk centers on nice guy
Joe Nemecheck losing his ride as
Ginn Racing shuts down the No. 13
team due to lack of sponsorship, and
Sterling Marlin being fired and
replaced with rookie Regan Smith,
who was sharing the Army ride with
Mark Martin. Notable too is Aric
Aimirola's bid goodbye to Joe
Gibbs and signing with Ginn, in a
share program for Cup racing with
Martin in the Army car. Aimirola's
move is all fallout from his being


removed from driving the Busch car
he "won" with under a yellow flag
by late-arriving Denny Hamlin, the
team's regular driver.
That's it for this week.

It's just a record


When Hank Aaron broke into
the big leagues, he wasn't allowed
to walk through the front doors of
most buildings. When Barry
Bonds broke into the big leagues,
he waltzed into his manager's
office without knocking and
introduced himself as the team's
No. 1 draft pick.
Bonds was kicked out of the
office; Aaron, as he did most other
nights at the start of his career, ate
a dinner of pork chops and french
fries.
The point of this is not to
compare the two players and their
run for the all-time home run
record. Plenty of media are doing
that and we all know that story.
Aaron was an incredibly
disciplined and consistent athlete
who routinely hit .300, while
turning in 40 home run, 100 run
and 100 RBI seasons. Bonds is a
prodigy who remained relatively
consistent throughout his career,


but put together a streak in his
final years that propelled him to
where he is now namely, the
top of the baseball record books.
Aaron was a hero. He played
through segregation and had to
endure threats on his life because
of the color of his skin. It's hard to
imagine that he broke the record
in 1974 and had to endure pre-
civil rights-era discrimination up
until that point. In fact, you can
make the case that that single
moment in time, the moment that
Aaron hit the record-breaking
home run, the moment those two
white college students ran beside
him and jubilantly slapped his
back that was the true turning
point for race-based hatred in
sports.
Bonds is not a hero. He's just
a damn good ballplayer who
thinks he's the center of the
universe and is nearly universally
despised by all sports journalists
who've ever met the man.
There were said to be 40 beat
reporters following Barry Bonds.
around as he went for the record-
breaking shot. Bob Hope, who
handled 'public relations for the
Atlanta Braves during Aaron's
day, laughs at that number. More


than 100 reporters followed
Aaron around. Bonds wants to
know where his entourage is.
Bonds wants to know why
everyone was so upset when he
pulled out of the home run-hitting
contest during the All Star Game
to "rest," but ended up admitting
on national television that he was
out partying with Jay-Z the night
before instead.
When Aaron was asked if he
thought anyone could break his
record in the late '90s, he said,
barring injuries, Ken Griffey Jr.
had the best shot. Griffey got
injured, but Bonds got "the clear."
It doesn't make the record any
less of a record, but sometimes its
not the end result that matters, it's
how you got there. The sports
world doesn't need to feel guilty
for not falling all over themselves
to congratulate the guy.
When Aaron did it, it was
something more. Now, it's just a
baseball record. And it will
eventually fall.
Mark Vasto is a veteran
sportswriter and publisher of The
Parkville (Mo) Luminary.

SANTA FE:

"This is probably our most
solid team we've put together,"
admitted Faulk. "I expect us to
be very deep in several
positions and it's really good
because that competition
between each other is going to
only make them better."
With a resume that would
make any other team blush, so
comes the pressure. Anything
short of an appearance in the
final four would appear
lackluster.
"The team has been very
different. The first statement
we said was that we are not
satisfied with how last year
ended," said Faulk in reference
to a regional final loss to
Jacksonville Bishop Kenney.
"Don't ever let another team out

play."
If this team doesn't see one
another enough on the court,
they're going to get the
opportunity to spend sometime
outside of .volleyball this
weekend. Over the past few
years, Faulk started a tradition
of taking her team on a team
bonding trip. The players aren't
told the location or details of the
weekend until they arrive at
their destination.
In year's past Faulk has taken
her teams to Camp Kulaqua,
Crystal River and even St.
Augustine. The Raiders leave
Friday afternoon and will return
Sunday in the early evening
hours.
"What it does is it allows
them to see each other outside
of practice and the gym,"
explained Faulk. "We do
different activities that
reinforce team bonding. It gets
them ready and let's them have
fun with one another.
"They have to know their
teammates care about them. I


want them to just have fun and
I'm looking forward to it."
Santa Fe is just a couple of
short weeks away from the start
of its season. The Raiders will
host their annual preseason,
classic on Aug. 23 in Raidert
Gym. The four-team classic;
will also include Middleburg-;
Ocala Forrest and Orange Park-
Ridgeview. Santa Fe will playi
Middleburg while Ocala Forest-
and Ridgeview will square off.,
Faulk says her team's focus-
throughout the season is crucial.
"We try to focus on not
looking at the final goal. We're
telling them that we've got to
take this one step at a time,"
said Faulk. "Middleburg is
going to be one of the best
teams in the state this year.
They were good last year and
they return every player. The
competition is right within our
own district."
