ALACHUA A workshop to discuss
the City of Alachua's preliminary budget
for 2008 fiscal year is set for today at
SCity staff and commissioners will
gather at City Hall to review a
preliminary budget according to Alachua
City Manager Clovis Watson, Jr.
"While this budget is tentative, we do
plan to present the commission with a
balanced budget," Watson said.
Alachua's proposed budget is about
$28.8 million, down 25-percent from the
2007 budget of about $36 million.
Watson noted, however, that the budget
is likely to be increased before it's
After a series of workshops and
hearings, the final budget is expected to
be approved on Sept. 24.
The decrease in budget from 2007 to
2008 is due in large part to not
calculating all grants, capital projects
and carry forward balances. The final
budget will include the grants, projects
and carry forward funds.
'Still, some of the decrease has
resulted from a change in law by the
State of Florida requiring counties and
municipalities to roll back ad valorem
tax rates. The reduction in property
taxes due to the new law drops the City
of Alachua's tax rate from 5.5 to 4.7
mills. The total revenue loss in Alachua
is almost a million dollars.

Ask Your Dentist by Douglas M
The birth of a cavity
The birth of a cavity
Q: How does a cavity get
A: A cavity is caused by the
action of acids on the enamel
surface of the tooth.
Acid in your mouth?
Acid is produced when
sugars, mainly in the form of
sucrose in food and beverage,
interact with bacteria that live in
plaque, the filmy substance on
the teeth. The reaction leads to a
loss of calcium and phosphate
from the enamel that protects the
tooth, a process called
demineralization. As this
process repeats itself over many
months, a small patch of
eventually collapses. Usually it's
in a spot not readily noticeable,
like in a fissure or groove or
Fluoride, when present in the
mouth, slows down this
demineralization process. ,Left
untreated, the cavity will spread
damage into the dentine, the
softer, more sensitive part of the
tooth under the enamel.
Eventually the decay will
destroy the tooth.
The pain, of course, will
drive you to the dentist. One way
to avoid cavities, also called
dental caries, is to avoid sugars
and to brush and floss faithfully.
Talk with your dentist about
ways to avoid tooth decay.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 06, 2007 A3
In the fifteenth chapter of I
Corinthians, Saint Paul gives us
the apostolic gospel, i.e., the
Apostles' message concerning
Christ, the kingdom of God, and
salvation. People sometimes
talk about the "simple gospel."
But, in most cases, this
expression means nothing more
than a few crude, unsubstan-
tiated opinions about the gospel.
Since the Christian Church
began, some "simple gospel"
references have been an offense
to reason, a dishonor to God,
and a curse to Christianity. But
when the "simple gospel" is
presented in connection with
the Apostles, it takes on a
The passage in I Corinthians
15:1 is Saint Paul's "simple
gospel," Christianity as he
states it. His letter substantiates
that Christianity is based upon
historical facts. It is not based
on human reason-with any of
its primitive sayings or logical
conclusions. It is not founded
on human imagination, or some
ingenious hypothesis to account
for some type of phenomena;
neither is it some poetic myth
trying to obscure the truth. It
"quite simply" is based on facts.-
These facts are personal.
They are connected with a
person, and that person is not
Socrates, Plato, or Caesar, but
one whom Paul calls Christ.
Saint Paul's Gospel is founded
upon the personal history of
one, and only one, individual-
Jesus, the Christ. And even
though the facts are
few, they are to the
point. Christ "died,"
he was "buried," and
The facts are also

What is the aim of the
Jesus "died for our sins."
The great objective of
Christianity is to "put away sin"
from the world, to put it away
from the hearts, literature,
institutions, customs, and
governments of mankind. Let
sin be put away, and all evil is
put away; natural evil is but the
effect of morality.
Philosophically, there is no
system on earth suited to
destroy man's sinful nature and
to change his heart except

Episcopal Christianity is'
to be preached
with this end in
mind, "By which also ye are
saved, if ye keep in memory
[holdfast] what Ipreached unto
you,"' and so on. Saint Paul
preached that we all might be
saved, but we can only be saved
as we renounce and hate sin.
The passage in First Corinthians
suggests three ideas in relation
to Paul's preaching with this
view in mind. First, he

They believed his gospel; then
he must have convinced them
by his preaching. Christianity
in preaching is to be extolled
"to every man's conscience."
Second, Saint Paul preached
Christianity scripturally. He put
forward the facts in the light of
the Scriptures, "according to
of Saint Paul
the Scriptures. And third, he
preached Christianity humbly.
The expression "been out of due
time" shows us his humility;
and then in the next verse he
says, "For I am the least of the
apostles, that I am not meet to
be called an apostle."
We thank God for such a
system as this-a system built
not on propositions, but on
facts, personal, few in number,
but well attested. Such facts are
obvious and attractive, giving
us a system which cures the
evils of the moral world by
taking away its sins. Let it be
preached, as Saint Paul
scripturally, and humbly.

High Springs City Manager Jim Drumm said
McIver's experience in detailed accounting was
something that stood out to hitn during the
interview process that included two other
candidates. Drumm explained that working in a
finance department as small as High Springs
often requires extra hours of work and believes
McIver has the determination for the department
to function successfully.
"When you have only two staff members it's
very often you have to put those hours in," said
McIver said she's still trying to get situated in her
new position, but said the entire staff has been
wonderful to her during her first few days on the
job. She said her goal as Finance Director is to

evening. Kaminskas was
transported to North Florida
Regional Medical Center and
was pronounced dead at 8:55
p.m. with his family, members
of the High Springs Police
force, and officers from other
local law enforcement agencies
at his side.
Last month Kaminskas took
a leave of absence due to health
problems, but recently returned
to the police department
working on a limited basis.
Before arriving in High
Springs, Kaminskas served with
the Clearwater Police
Department where he started his
career in 1972. Kaminskas
retired from the department
with the rank of Captain in
February 1994. After leaving
Clearwater Kaminskas accepted
a position in Illinois with the
Village of LaGrange Police
After spending time in
Illinois Kaminskas moved back
to the Sunshine State as Chief of
Police for the Crystal River
Police Department in Citrus
County serving in that capacity
from 1996 to 1999. Kaminskas
then moved to the St. Petersburg
Beach Police Department for
three years before his arrival in
High Springs. Kaminskas
earned a bachelors degree in
criminal justice from the
University of South Florida and
completed required classroom
S hours for a masters degree in
criminal justice from the same
High Springs Police
spokesperson Gordon Fulwood
said Kaminskas' unexpected
death came as a shock. He said
rumm: Police department has shown professionalism while mourning
the chief's passing still has not
registered fully with the
"It still has not clearly sunk
in," said Fulwood.
Fulwood said Kaminskas
was a shining example to the
people who worked for him.
"He was a perfect example
of what a Chief of Police should
be," noted Fulwood.
According to Fulwood,
Kaminskas quickly fell in love
with the small town atmosphere
High Springs offered once he
assumed the chief's position
from previous High Springs
Police Chief Thomas Wolfe.
'Fulwood said Kaminskas was
proud to be a member of the
High Springs community.
"He found a home here and
was very happy here,"
Fulwood said Kaminskas
helped the department grow in
personnel along with expanding
the fleet of patrol cars for the
force. He praised Kaminskas'
intelligence and the knowledge
he brought to the department.
"He was an encyclopedia of
knowledge when it came to law
enforcement," said Fulwood.
High Springs City
Commissioner Jim Gabriel said
he was saddened when he heard
the news of Kaminskas'
passing. Gabriel said
Kaminskas set a high bar of
professionalism in the
department during his four
years at the helm. Gabriel said
Kaminskas came to the
department at a time High
Springs was going through a
transition phase, and believed
the chief rose to the occasion
during the transition period.
"He did a great job during
that transition," added Gabriel.
Commissioner Larry Travis
mentioned Kaminskas's death
came as a surprise to him
especially after hearing that the
chief's health was improving.
"I was shocked. You're
never ready for that," said
The Commissioner said
Kaminskas brought outstanding
organizational skills to the
police department and was a
good fit for High Springs.
Williams was on the selection
committee four years ago when
High Springs was searching for
a new police chief. During the
search process Williams said he
was impressed with Kaminskas'
administrative skills during
interviews. He said
Kaminskas's death leaves a void
in the community.
"Hle will be missed," said
High Springs Police Officer
Mike Coulon said he was out of
town when he heard news of
Kaminskas's death and it came
as a shock to him as well.
"I couldn't believe it. It was
so sudden," said Coulon.
. Coulon said he had met with
Kaminskas on Friday and he
was jovial and cracking jokes.
Coulon, who joined the police
department a year ago after
working several years for the
Alachua Police Department,
credited Kaminskas for the
opportunity to resume a career
in law enforcement after being
out of the profession for a few

"The man gave me a chance
when nobody else would," said
High Springs City Manager
Jim Drumm said the mood in
the police department has been
"It's very calm and somber.
Everyone is mourning in their
own personal way," said
Drumm said Kaminskas
instilled pride in the
department's officers and
challenged police personnel to
reach a higher standard of
excellence. Drumm said the
chief stressed education to
employees at the department.
"He really encouraged
education in the special areas of
law enforcement," said Drumm.
Even during this time of
mourning Drumm said
everyone in the department has
continued to perform their
duties in a professional manner,
and added the chief would have
it no other way.
professional and able to perform
their duties. That's the way the
Chief would want it," said
Coulon said the department
'will pull together and become
an even stronger police force.
The late HSPD Chief Ray Kaminskas (far right) is pictured along
with fellow officers of the department and a mound of evidence
collected during an investigation last year.
"We're all going to miss
him, but the department will
definitely pull itself together
and be stronger as a
department," said Coulon.
Kaminskas, who was born in
West Germany, but raised in the
United States, is survived by his
wife Deborah, daughters
Elizabeth and Kathleen of
Largo, Florida, his sister Ausra
Kaminskas of Eastlake, Ohio,
and mother Nataliza Kaminskas
of Euclid, Ohio.
A memorial service in
Kaminskas' honor will be held
on Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 11 a.m.

positions according to Watson.
"What we've done is essentially frozen some
of the vacant positions.
"Keeping the positions unfilled for now will
allow us to save some money and stay within our
means," said Watson.
Pointing to a diverse tax base, Watson said
Alachua is feeling the pinch of the property tax

The commission is facing an
uncertain future as
commissioners will discuss on
Sept. 13 options about filling
DePeter's seat. Options
previously mentioned include
leaving the seat vacant or
appointing an interim
The series of unusual events
started in April with City
Manager Jim Drumm's decision
to place Jewell on leave of
absence. due to numerous
alleged safety and personnel
violations. Jewell eventually
resigned from his position in
June, and is currently being
investigated by the State
Attorney's Office for possible
criminal violations. Three
months after Jewell's
resignation the fire department
remains without a chief.
High Springs also faces an
uncertain future with its
upcoming fiscal year budget.
Due to budget cuts mandated by
Area man gave Gregory $200
"I wanted to do something that would
touch people in a unique way," said Gregory.
Setting out on the trip Sept. 1, 2006, a year
later Gregory found himself walking into High
Springs where he says he was graciously
welcomed a theme he's found common
along his journey. While in High Springs,
Gregory met a man he only knew as "Cal."
Like many of the people Gregory has met in
the last year, Cal had a poignant story to tell.
Gregory's running into Cal seemed almost
destined to occur. Gregory said Cal mentioned
that he had not been to Floyd's Diner in quite
some time and lost his wife to cancer just last
week. Cal treated the hiker to dinner at
Floyd's and later allowed him to stay in his
home overnight. Tuesday, Cal dropped
Gregory back where he met him and gave the
young hiker $200 for food and other
necessities to continue his trip.
By Tuesday afternoon, Gregory was well
on his way to Gainesville, hauling a full-scale
backpack' loaded with clothes, a tent, the
necessary goodies to keep a hiker on the go
and a lot more. Gregory carries with him a
digital video camera and a cell phone so he can
keep in touch with family, friends and others.
About Matt Gregory
As he passed through Alachua, Gregory
paused long enough to conduct an interview
and tell his own story.
Gregory was born prematurely because his
mother had leukemia in 1979. She received a
bone marrow transplant and survived cancer
until 1999 when she died of melanoma. As
time pressed on Gregory wanted to find away
to remember his mother and raise awareness.
Years after his mother's passing, and at the
urging of a longtime friend, Gregory finally
decided to set out on an adventure to cross
America on foot.
Gregory holds a bachelor of arts in social
science from Westem Oregon University and
had worked for a beverage distributor in
Washington before he literally walked away to
raise money for cancer research.
Having walked 4,400 miles so far,
Gregory's trip is garnering plenty of attention.
Some 50-plus newspapers and other media
outlets have interviewed Gregory, bringing his
story to millions.
"It's hard to say how many people I've
met, but I would estimate .it to be in the
thousands," Gregory said.
He's slept in 85 households, often for more
than one night at a time. Since coming, to
Florida, Gregory said he's had to camp in his
tent only a few times. Gregory is now on his
second backpack which was provided by his
sponsor, Gregory Backpacks, because his first
pack was worn out. And while Gregory may
be thousands of miles from home, he
maintains daily contact with his father and
nine-year-old brother in Oregon.
It's no surprise that several thousand miles
of walking would introduce Gregory to
strange encounters, but few can
compare to some of the people
he's met along the way. Gregory
met one man from France and
another Slovenia. Each of the
men was on a journey to bike
around the world. One of them
started in Argentina, while the
other was bound for Argentina.
Even more strangely, the two
cyclists had coincidentally run
into each other in Nicaragua.
While traveling through
Houston, Texas, Gregory was
featured by news media which
caught the attention of a Houston
Astros box suite holder. Gregory
was taken to the game by a couple
who purchased a ticket for him.
But a man with a corporate suite
noticed Gregory and invited the
'hiker over. It was in the corporate
suite that Gregory said he met and
spoke with Astros team owner,
"[Drayton McLean] joked
.that if his team doesn't start
playing better he'll be walking
with me," said Gregory.
Famous or not, Gregory said
he's learned a lot about people.
S"Through this trip, I've learned that people
are really nice and don't want to hurt you.
"It's really cool that there are so many
caring and giving people -out there," said
Gregory is more than your average hiker.
With his digital video camera in tow, he
selectively filrs and shoots photos as he plans
a documentary. Gregory hopes the
documentary, which he's aiming to complete
in a year, will also raise money for cancer
"I'm the kind of person that really likes to
see something through to the end," said
A quick glance at Gregory's website,
his dedication to the project. He posts
regularly to a blog on his website and one
could spend hours perusing the photos he's
snapped across the country.
A Change of Plans
It is perhaps by chance that Gregory is
passing through Alachua County. The Pacific
Northwest native had originally planned to
continue from the panhandle of Florida
eastward toward Jacksonville where he would
walk along the coastal area of Florida.
While in Tallahassee, however, Gregory
made connections with a Gainesville couple -
one of whom attends the University of Florida
while the other commutes to Florida State
University. He plans to spend a few days with
the Gainesville couple as he awaits the arrival
of an order of business cards which are being
BRYAN BOUKARI/Alachua County Today
After pausing a few minutes for an interview, Gregory
continues on his trek from High, Springs to Gainesville
printed by a print shop owner he met when
passing through Texas.
Originally planning to end his trip in
Miami, Gregory has since extended it to Key
West, Florida and expects to arrive there in late
October. With daily treks ranging from 10-15
miles recently, the hiker with a cause isn't
certain if he'll proceed to Florida's east coast
from Ocala or Orlando. Either way, he's likely
to continue meeting hospitable folks who'll.
lend him a place to sleep or help out with a
meal s he pass-es through the sunshine state.
Gregory hopes to raise $100,000 for
cancer research and has managed to pick up
$7,500 so far.
"1 really think Florida could take me
there," Gregory commented about the
prospects of raising the balance of his goal.
"As I get closer to the end of this trip, I
seem to be getting a lot more attention and I
hope that will. motivate people to donate," he
Donations can be made through links on
Gregory's site, MyWalkingAdventure.com.
Gregory urges people to donate in Carolyn
Gregory's name to Fred Hutchinson Cancer
Gregory hands business cards out freely,
requiring nothing in return. But with each card
Gregory hands out, he remains optimistic the
person receiving it will be touched enough to
contribute to the funding of cancer research
which could one day save the life of another.

HIGH SPRINGS High
Springs City Commissioners
are currently reviewing a
proposed adult entertainment
ordinance that would classify
where sex shops can operate in

about where those areas might
One highlight of the
ordinance is the required
distance between an adult
business location and
residentially zoned land,
churches, schools, and daycare
facilities. According to the
draft, adult businesses would be
required to be located 500 or
more feet away from those
sensitive areas. The distances
were chosen to minimize the
exposure of children and others
to an adult entertainment store.
The only eligible location a sex
shop could locate is primarily
in industrial areas.
However, a question
remains. What if a church.

decides to locate in one of the
eligible industrial area<'
According to High Springs City
Planner Christian Popoli, if an
adult business opens prior to a
church or school locating in the
same area, the church or school
would have to find another
location. If a church, school, or
daycare center is already in one
of the eligible industrial areas
prior to a sex shop opening, the
facilities would have to be
buffeted by at least 500 feet
from the adult business.
High Springs City Attorney
Jim Pendland sees the proposed
ordinance being tweaked once
it officially becomes law so it

constitutionality and be legally
defensible in a court of law.

thing to do (and what he has been
instructed to do by his coaches).
Florida passed its first test with
flying colors. in the weather-shortened
contest. But, everything looks great
when you're playing a Western
Kentucky at least it should. How will
the Gators fair this weekend with Troy
coming to town?
Florida will still win convincingly
and will probably approach this game
with even more focus. The key for the
Gators will be to pick areas to improve
on and really hammer those out this
game before Tennessee.
The Gators don't just need to go into
the Troy game and just game plan to
win. They need to have narrower goals
as well.' Whether it be toughening up
the offensive line or working with
defensive backs, the Gators have
plenty to work on.
The U.S. Open has had its share of
impressive moments. The match of the
tournament, however, was James Blake
against Tommy Haas. Blake, the sixth-
ranked player in the world fell to Hass
in five competitive sets that ended with
a fifth-set tiebreak. Both players had
streaky moments at first, but as the
match wore on they began to hone their
skills and really strike the ball well.
That's a match where you hate to see
either player lose because both played
with so much heart and talent.
Aside from the Blake-Haas, match,
American Venus Williams has been the
most impressive player for the women.
She played Jelena Jankovic Wednesday
night, although that result was not
available as of press time. Williams
should beat Jankovic and then go on to
face Justin Henin in the semifinals.
While Henin was able to beat Serena
Williams in the quarterfinals, Venus
would be a much tougher opponent.
Venus has the ability to move Henin
from side to side, much better than
Serena did. Serena hit the ball into the
middle of the court too much and
allowed Henin to use her uncanny
ability of finding angles to down the
junior Williams sister.
Venus can really stretch an opponent
out and she can also use a drop slice to
not only move Henin from side to side
but also front to back, which is what
you have to do almost perfectly to
get Henin off balance and beat her.
If American Andy Roddick finds a
way to beat Roger Federer (also played
Wednesday night but not available as
of press time) he will take the entire
tournament. That is a big if, because
Federer is the best in the world, but
he's on Roddick's surface at Roddick's
If Venus and Roddick win, it will
truly be a U.S. Open.

Track testing without the track
Q: Greg, during ESPN's
coverage of the Michigan race I
saw a great feature on a piece of
equipment called a seven-post
shaker and how it helps in the
testing and development of the
car's suspension. It can simulate
a race track and offer up the
bumps the actual track would so
the mechanics can study what
the suspension is doing (without
going to the track). Is all this
necessary when NASCAR is
trying to cut costs? It costs $3
million for one. I remember
when all they had in the shop
were tool sets, a chassis jig, an
engine room and a dyno to
check the horsepower..- Duke
A: Duke, for $3 million, I'd
hate to have to buy one, but I
think in this day and age of the
"haves" and "have nots," just
seeing a seven-post shaker on
premises tells your team and
race drivers that you are serious
about winning. Some say
"monkey see, monkey do," but
in this age of NASCAR, it is
now "money see, money do."
However, it hasn't always
been that way.
Let's touch on your dyno
comment, which is a great
correlation. A dynamometer is a
highly technical machine that
allows an engine to be attached,
started and run for however
many hours you would like at
whatever rpm range. The
resulting data is nothing short of
fantastic. It's all printed out for
you to see exactly how the
engine is working.
Years ago, probably the late
'70s, I sat down with Jere Stahl,
known for his drag-racing
championships, dyno tuning
and especially his header
construction business. As we
talked about his state-of-the-art
dyno, Jere told me that Robert
Yates used to have a wonderful
dyno at his shop.
Yates' "dyno" was nothing
more than an airplane propeller
that attached to the engine,
allowing Yates to see how much
force the engine was producing
via the propeller's wind speed.
Thus, he knew which engines
were putting out more
horsepower. It might have been
a crude dyno, but that's how it
all started for Robert Yates.
This story correlates to the
shaker, too. I remember the
four-post shaker, which has
been around for many decades
and used mostly in the
manufacturing industry by the
big auto giants to test shock
absorbers, springs and to see if
the car would develop squeaks.
Each tire had its own "shaker
post" to sit on, which would
move up and down and
sideways to simulate road
The race teams, meanwhile,
A stock car sits on the Ohlins shaker rig in Hendersonville, N.C.
didn't worry about rattles and
squeaks yet were indeed
interested in the theory of the
shaker. It started with the high-
profile open-wheel teams, ala
Adrian Reynard of Team
Reynard in Indy Car and
Formula One. Reynard
explained that he had his seven-
post rig machine up and running
at the ARC company near
Indianapolis back in the '90s.
He figured that if more
hydraulic posts were built into
the system, the teams could
learn more about their race cars.
The seven-post shaker provides
information as if the race car

involved with actual testing.
Thus, if you want to win,
you'll have a shaker somewhere
on your team's complex, or be
willing to rent time on

Newberry (1-0). Xavier Woods
added 121 rushing yards on 10
carries for Newberry, which
won their second-straight
meeting against the rival
Raiders (0-1). The last time the
Panthers accomplished that feat
was in 1997 and 1998.
"Look at everything that

his starters were also vomiting
before the game. "But still, it is
good to know that you can be

well and you can come back
like that in the second half."
Each club started a little slow
offensively with a punt and a
fumble in each of its first two
possessions. After Woods
fumbled, Santa Fe took over on
its own 21-yard line with 2:31

Monkey off Manning's back
-- -- by-Mark
I yeW Vasto
.If the American Football
Conference is sitting on a
mountain of stockpiled
quarterbacks, after last season's
Super Bowl, there can be little
argument that Indianapolis Colt
quarterback Peyton Manning sits
on top ofthe,heap.
Voted the MVP after leading
the Colts to a 29-17 victory over
the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl
XLI, Manning exorcised any
demons he may have had and
silenced the critics who, for years,
said he couldn't win the "big
It was never any question that
Manning had the skills. Since an
early age, the son of former NFL
star Archie Manning showed the
type of athleticism that would
make him the field general he is
today. His college career was
amazing. He owns 29 individual
quarterback records at perennial
powerhouse Tennessee .and four
SEC career records, including
highest completion percentage
and most 300-plus yard games.
He has torn up the NFL -
winning two MVPs and playing
in seven Pro Bowls. Already, he
owns six career passing records
and five single season records,
including mbst touchdowns in a
Judging from his pre-season,
it is not a stretch to believe that
Manning will continue his roll.
"Now Peyton doesn't have to
prove to the world that 'I can win
it,'" former NFL quarterback and
ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski told
Sthe Indianapolis Star recently. "He
finally dispelled that myth. He's
got that big rock on his finger and
he can just play loose and free. He
has to be absolutely thrilled."
Of course, the league isn't
ready to just roll over yet. The
Colts have a few questions to
answer can their defense,
which stepped up in a big way
during last postseason, gel into
one of the top units in the league?
Will Joseph Addai be the running
back complement that Manning
Also in the way are pre-
season favorites to win it all, the
New England Patriots. Their
quarterback is no slouch, either.
Tom Brady, as a recent Sports
Illustrated points out, is the
youngest QB to win one, two or
three Super Bowls, engineer of
the longest win streak in NFL
history, leader of the only walk-
off scoring drive in Super Bowl
history, owner of the best winning
percentage by a QB in modem
NFL history and best overtime
record in NFL history, and one of
just four players to boast multiple
Super Bowl MVP awards. This
year he'll be aiming at Randy
Moss in the end zone. There is
little doubt that there will be lots
to cheer about in Taxachusetts this
So, one season does not a
quarterback make, and Manning,
it would seem, still has more to
accomplish when compared with
his chief rival. Still, guys like
Jaworski believe they have seen
"I believe he is 'the best
quarterback in the game, and
when he's done he'll be
recognized as the best quarterback
ever to play the game."
