The Alachua City Commission
approved a proposed city budget of close to
$29 million at its regular meeting Monday
night, which would be a decrease of nearly
$10 million from last year's budget.
The proposed city budget for fiscal year
2007-08 is $28,850,612, which amounts to
a decrease of 25-percent from the previous
budget, or $9,902,821. The budget may
undergo some modifications before its
second and final hearing at the next city
commission meeting on Sept. 24, however,

projects funds had been appropriated as of

Waldo A Waldo native has returned home to
open a coffee shop and art gallery in downtown
in an old building that has been everything from
a bank to a Masonic lodge.
Roland Wise, 42, was back from Los Angeles
for a visit in November when he saw that the
building was for sale.
"I just had to have it," he said. "When I saw
it, I knew I had to buy it and move back home."
He has spent months working 16-hour days to
renovate it and said that he hopes to have it open
soon. It will be known as 301-24 Coffee House,
named after the street it is built on, Highway 301
and State Road 24. He hopes the location on the
main road through downtown Waldo on the way
to Gainesville will attract a lot of customers.
"This building is a forgotten source of
abundance for the whole town and I hope to
revive it," said Wise.
Patrons can enjoy bubble tea with tapioca
balls under the shade of Wise's pecan tree,
Connie, or Maggie the Magnolia. They can also
sip a cup of coffee while browsing through the art
gallery or sitting on the colorful couches.
The shop includes what Wise calls the "Zen
meditation room" and a quaint outdoor garden
for customers to relax in.
There will be books and ice cream for sale as

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2007 A3
Miracles do happen
The miracles of the Lord are often told
so far out of context that they become
nothing but a Christian history lesson. We
tend to forget that these stories were written
in Holy Scripture for our benefit, to instruct
us in the Faith and to influence our lives.
Christians learn from Scripture, when
we allow it to speak for itself, entering our
hearts by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
The Gospel of Saint Mark 7:31 helps us to
understand by telling of a miraculous
healing Jesus performed.
First, look at some general things about
the healing of this deaf and dumb man. It
took place in Decapolis, a large area south of
the Sea of Galilee, populated mainly by
Gentiles. These were the people outside of
the Covenant with God; people whom the
Jews believed unworthy of God's grace. If
God had selected only the Children of
Abraham to be worthy of salvation, the ,on
of God would never have set foot in this
place of Gentiles... but He did. God does
not discriminate in His offer of Salvation and
neither should we.
But we learn something more about
God's grace in this healing event as we
consider that Christ had passed through
Decapolis before. In chapter 5 of his Gospel,
Saint Mark wrote about Christ meeting a
demoniac in this area
A great miracle had occurred the last
time Jesus passed by, perhaps no more than
30 miles away from where He had healed
the deaf and dumb man. After Jesus drove
the demons from the man, the community
to leave. The
that they were
never graced by
presence again. -, :
It is either a
glorious thing to
be in the
Christ (as it was
for the man The Ven. John E.
who was set Leasure
free) or it is a All Saints Anglican
fearful thing (as Church, Gairesville.
it was for the A parish of the
people of the Christian Episcopal
a r e a ) Church
Christ came to Decapolis again but did not
go through the part where He was sent away.
How tragic to witness the grace of God, and
then to reject coming to a personal
knowledge of Him. And so on their day of
visitation, Jesus came and left with only one
follower-a former demoniac.
Jesus came to Decapolis and when He
arrived, there were crowds waiting for Him.
St Matthew puts it this way, "15:30 And
great crowds came to him, bringing with
them the lame, the maimed the blind, the
dumb, and many others, and they put them
at his feet, and he healed them..." But St
Mark highlights the healing of this one man.
The Scriptures say that "they bring unto
Him...and beseech Him to put His hand
upon him." So, this man did not come of his
own initiative, which gives an important
lesson in evangelism. Our friends, co-
workers, or relatives in need of Christ might
never come to Him if we do not initiate the
Having taken the man aside, Jesus heals
him in a most extraordinary way. Putting
His fingers into the man's ears, and taking
spit and touching the
man's tongue, Jesus-
looked up, sighed,
and said "be
opened." This is a
great lesson in communication, symbolism
and love, in the working of God's grace.
This man was deaf, so he could not hear
anything Jesus was saying and also being
tongue-tied he could not outwardly
communicate with Jesus. The touch to the
ear and the spit to the tongue are natural
ways of Christ's expressing compassion for
the man. Jesus simply could have said a
word and the man would be healed, but His
compassion to communicate with this man
demanded more. And He looked up-this
simple action alone would teach the man to
look to God for healing.
Thus, we see the usefulness of
symbolism to communicate the grace of
God. It was not the symbolic act
alone that healed the nian, and Sh
neither is it the symbols we use in
Church on which we should rest our Let e
Faith. But we mustn't think too
lightly about these things either. The Call
ritual and gestures we use in our
worship are useful in demonstration
our love of God.
Just as Jesus came to Decapolis and
blessed those who came to Him in Faith, so
I tell you He is present among us today. We
have a choice. We can be like those who
feared Jesus and begged Him to leave or we
can be like those who brought their needs to
Him and went away praising God. We, too,
must make a choice to know Him or reject
Him, and so I urge you to bring Him all of
your needs. Trust Him. He loves us. I pray
that God would use the Apostles' words and
the symbolism, gestures, and ritual to open
our eyes, ears and mouths that we may see
Him and praise His Holy Name.

Alachua," Burgess said.
City revenue will be affected by the
implementation of tax cuts, including a
reduced millage rate that was also approved
on first hearing at the commission meeting.
The millage rate, which is the taxable rate
on property, was reduced to 4.7064 mills,
which is five-percent less than the 4.9541
mills that would be needed to maintain the
same property tax revenue from last year.
Consequently, Alachua property tax
revenue will decrease by approximately
The decreased millage rate comes as, a
result of the City complying with the
Property Tax Reform legislation passed by
the Florida State Legislature earlier this
summer, which set unprecedented
restrictions on municipalities' ability to set
their own millage rates.
"We feel it's a travesty that our village
rate is being dictated to us," Alachua City
Manager Clovis Watson, Jr. said.
"Sometimes the Legislature feels like it can
run city governments, and maybe they will
begin to completely run them from
Some issues concerning the final
amount of the Alachua City budget remain
undecided. Commissioner Jean
Calderwood asked Watson if the amount the
city pays to Alachua County for some
administrative services, particularly for
providing a fire station, would remain the
"I feel comfortable we will reach a
compromise," Watson said regarding the
status of negotiations for the fire station
service. "They [Alachua County] proposed
a seven-percent increase, and we proposed,
a three-percent increase. I am confident
they will compromise because the fire
station is of great benefit to them serving
nearby unincorporated areas, and because
they haven't had a problem with the City of
Alachua like they have with other
municipalities. The City is prepared to
have our own fire department if it comes to
that, but I'm confident we will reach a
Watson also said he is hoping the City
will receive some county funding for its
transit system, AlachuWay CATS. He said
another way will be found to fund the
project if the county does not assist.
It was also noted during the meeting that
the City spent $300,000 defending itself
from various litigations brought against it
during the current fiscal year.

believes the combined gas
stations and convenience stores
will continue to get bigger,
while smaller stores will
probably go out of business.
"I'm one of the few small
business people left," said
Milliken about the gas station.
Milliken, 50, was born in
Utah, but raised in Minnesota
outside the Twin Cites of
Minneapolis/St. Paul. After
graduating from college with a
degree in both business
administration and applied
politics, Milliken worked for
several political campaigns,
including former Virginia
Senator Chuck Robb's
successful bid for Governor in
1981, and as a campaign aid for
former Congressman, the late
Norman Sisisky of Virginia.
After working on political
campaigns, Milliken moved to
Florida in the mid 1980s.
Florida was an attractive
destination for Milliken
because his parents were living
in the state. He also saw the
move as an opportunity for a
more stable occupation that the
world of political campaigns
"It would be something to
fill in the blanks," said Milliken
of his move to Florida.
In 1985 Milliken opened a
Chevron station location at the
site of his present gas station.
In 1992 the Chevron station
became a Citgo, and in 2000
Milliken's station become a
large convenience store and gas
station with more pumps to help
meet the needs of a growing
customer base: Since the'
store's expansion Milliken
credits his employees with the
store's success for the way they-
serve area customers.
"I think part of it is because
we work with the local people,"
Because of fluctuations in
gas prices, Milliken said his
business has been up and down

was held at the Mount Olive Baptist
church in Taylor's honor with
remembrances from former
students. Students who spoke at the
event told many stories about Taylor
expressing the love and discipline
she instilled in their lives.
High Springs Mayor Larry
Travis said Taylor molded many
leaders that walked through her
classroom. He said Taylor's
influence is indelibly etched
throughout High Springs.
"She had a tremendous
influence on the entire community,"
Taylor's nephew, Bobby
Kennedy, who is the only surviving
member of Taylor's family,
remembered his aunt as someone
who was a huge presence in her
"She was a tremendous
presence. She was loving and very
strict," said Kennedy.
Kennedy said he's happy that
High Springs officials have
dedicated apark in honor of his aunt.
Appreciative of city officials and
citizens for their efforts in
organizing the ceremony, Kennedy
said, I'm very blessed to see this."

Kennedy said he was certain his

from the heavens.
"She's smiling down on us
seeing the results of hard labor," said
High Springs City Manager Jim

"I think it's exciting to see the
whole community together," said.
Williams said he got positive
feedback on how the dedication

FIRE SERVICES: Crunch also hitting sports complex

charge businesses nine cents per square foot up to
10,000 square feet.
Originally the proposed increase in fire
assessment rates included residential property
owners paying a rate of $75 per dwelling unit and
non-residential business owners paying 14 cents
per square foot capped at 10,000 square feet.
Newberry Mayor John Glanzer said with cuts
mandated by the Florida legislature along with no
increase in fire assessment rates, more
firefighters will have to work overtime during
their shifts because of the cuts in part-time fire
employees. However, Glanzer assured Newberry
citizens that emergency response times will not
slow down, and that the level of services offered
from the department will remain the same.
Newberry will also see delays with the
implementation of an irrigation system at the
Newberry Sports Complex along with a delay in
refurbishing a basketball. court at a city park.
City Recreation and Parks Director Richard
Blaylock said his department won't be trimmed
dramatically for the upcoming fiscal year.
Blaylock expressed confidence that the
recreation department will be a revenue generator
for Newberry and offset losses the city is
experiencing in other departments.
The city will see a decrease in revenues of
$226,000 and the millage rate will fall from 4.45
to 3.69 for the upcoming year.
Even with the budget cuts, water and sewer
revenues will increase and Newberry city
employees will get a two-percent cost of living
allowance (COLA) increase. In addition,
cemetery along with roads and streets services
will increase in general fund expenditures.
Glanzer said with cuts to the budget taking
place along with the possibility of the "Super"
Homestead exemption being enacted by voters in
January, Newberry citizens will have to decide
what services they want and at what level.
Newberry City Manager Keith Ashby said the
process of formulating the budget was a trying
experience for him because of the amount of the
cuts required. The City Manager praised city
department heads for their work on the upcoming
Ashby said when he considered the budget he
was also thinking about the budget for next year
and the effects of a "Super" Homestead
Exemption would have. "We have to be ready to
address that," said Ashby.
Ashby declined to speculate on what
Newberry's budget would look like if voters
passed the exemption.
"I don't want to predict anything because it
wouldn't be fair to the city staff," said Ashby.

MIDDLEBURG After a tough
season-opening loss to Newberry, the
last thing the Santa Fe High School
football team wanted to do was travel
to Class 4A Middleburg and record
another loss. Unfortunately for the
Raiders, that's exactly what
happened as the Broncos used a
dominating first half to send Santa Fe
(0-2) packing with a 45-19 loss.
"Right now it's the tale of two
halves," explained Raider head coach
Bart Brooks. "We talked all week
long about playing four quarters.
And honestly, we had a bad week of
practice. We've got to pick it up at
practice and that's the coaches' fault
and we'll pick it up."
SMiddleburg churned out a
whopping 553 yards of offense, 318
of which came from the ground
game. The Broncos picked up
yardage early with a nine-play, 92-
yard drive capped by a one-yard
Rodney Jones touchdown run. After
a botched snap, Middleburg ended up
converting a two-point play for an 8-
0 lead with 9:16 left in the opening

"healthy" snack-wrap, and
upon ordering, I heard
something that made me
wonder just how bad things
have gotten for Santa Fe
The pimply-faced kid behind
the counter seemed amazed
when I answered his question
about "who won the game?"
' "We (Middleburg) did?" he
said with approximately the
same look most of us had when
we first heard that the World
Trade Center towers had been
He was sincerely amazed.
"I'm honestly shocked we
could beat anyone," he noted.
Obviously, this kid's
reaction has little to do with
the Raiders' performance on a
football field, but does it
possibly mean that Santa Fe
has apparently become a
remedy for ailing teams?
What's the problem?
The players and coaches
would love to know the answer
to that question themselves.
For whatever it's worth -
and I know it's probably not
much Mikey doesn't think
it's any one particular thing.
But, here are three biggies,
If it's present in practice, it's

them to competing,. let alone
Oh sure, it's nice to give a
rah-rah speech before and/or
after the games and all, but
that's like putting a band-aide
or4 a gunshot wound.
Leaders do whatever it takes
to find that certain something
that inspires others to do their
best every play.
2. Mental toughness.
Look, when you've gone
through what this program has
gone through recently, it's
certainly understandable to
have that "oh no, here we go
again" mentality when
something bad happens during
For the second time in as
many weeks, it looked as if
chin straps were dragging on
the Santa Fe sideline as soon as
the opposing team went up by
a couple of scores.
On Friday, the Raiders did
make a comeback, but for the
most part, it didn't really start
until the third quarter.
They have to constantly
remind themselves early on
that teams that fight to the end
- on every down just
naturally have a tendency to
come back from any adversity.
Santa Fe fans must realize
that the delay in getting plays
called into the offense are
being impacted by the
unexpected (broken leg) injury
to head coach Bart Brooks, and
him having to reside in a press
box and not on the sideline on
That is no one's fault.
However, one of the
fundamental advantages the
"no-huddle" offense gives a
team is the ability to maintain
a tempo that gives the defense
little time to prepare for what
they are seeing across the line
of scrimmage from them, thus,
putting them back on their
heels and sucking wind.
For most of the first half
against Middleburg, Santa Fe
had trouble developing any
kind of rhythm because after
each play good or bad there
was a long pause, waiting for
the next play to come in.
For whatever reason, the
plays were called much faster
at the beginning of the third
quarter, the tempo picked up
and lo and behold, the Raiders
started moving the ball on
offense and scoring.

from scrimmage in the opening
half compared to just the 16
plays the Bears ran. Rodney
Scott, a Class 2A second-team
all-state running back, ran for
107 yards on 22 carries and
scored a touchdown for Dixie
County (1-1), which was
plagued by four fumbles, three
of which were turnovers.
Newberry, Class 2B's fourth-
ranked club, had five fumbles
but only lost one.
After a scoreless opening
quarter in which each team lost
a fumble, Newberry's all-state
running back opened the
scoring. Ivey's 16-yard
touchdown run up the middle
on a fourth-and-two play
capped the Panthers' seven-play
66-yard drive and gave the
visitors a 6-0 lead just six
seconds into the second quarter.
Then on the ensuing kickoff,
Newberry recovered Dixie's
second fumble of the opening
half but the turnover came at a
price. Nytrell Greenlee was in
on the play and actually caused
the fumble but suffered a severe
leg injury that caused the senior
to be carted off the field in a
stretcher. Greenlee, a reserve
wide receiver who actually
caught a touchdown pass in the
first quarter that was called
back due to a penalty, broke two
bones in his ankle, according to
Keeler. The coach said that
Greenlee had surgery on
Tuesday morning but is
expected to miss the rest of the
After about a 10-minute
delay, the Panthers tried to
regroup and although they
didn't score off that turnover,
they did manage to find the end

seven-yard touchdown run,
followed by his two-point
conversion run pushed
Newberry's lead to 14-0 with
1:55 left in the first half.
At the 5:23 mark of the third
quarter, Newberry recovered its
third fumble of the game, which

Faulk, who chose Williams

applicants. "I was looking for a
female and a teacher initially

he was a varsity assistant during
Swain's last year at Santa Fe.

to get a female to do it, but it
didn't work out that way,"
Williams said. "A lot of the kids
were asking me over the
summer and wanted me to do it

me a lot of confidence and it
lets me know the kids have

Williams coached his son
Leroy, Jr., who was a member
of the Raiders state-semifinal
team in 1999.
Despite his family ties and
his excitement for his new job,
Williams, who Faulk describes
as a no-nonsense guy, brings
with him a set of lofty goals and
"I like to set my goals high,
we need to talk about winning a
state championship," Williams
said. "I think if we work to

The Bronco defense then
forced a three-and-out of the
Santa Fe offense. Once the
Middleburg offense took the
field it only took the home team
one play to hit pay dirt with a
62-yard touchdown pass
connection from Jones to
teammate Patrick Nixon.
Middleburg led 15-0 midway
through the first quarter.
The Raider offense took to
the field once again and on first

Scaff hooked up with wide

again in the final second of the
third quarter as Scaff ran a
quarterback keeper 18 yards for
a touchdown. That was the
final play on a drive that
showed Santa Fe rush on six
straight downs. Raider senior
running back Deonte Merricks
recorded 36 yards on the drive
as did Scaff.
Santa Fe puts its final points
on the board in lightening-quick
fashion as junior Jamal White
took a hand off down the left
sideline 87 yards for the score
with 10:28 left in the game.
The Raiders collected 237
rushing yards against the
Broncos to go along with 111
yards through the air for 348
total yards of offense. White's
long touchdown play helped
him to be the leading rusher for
Santa Fe on the night with 97
yards on five carries.
Meanwhile, Merricks rushed
nine times for 88 yards for the
visitors. Through the air, Scaff
completed 8-of-15 passes for
111 yards and a touchdown
while Snead's 42-yard catch led
his team in that department.
Taylor also picked up 101 yards
on kick returns for the Raiders,
and teammate Mixon punted
five times for an average of 38
Jones recorded 267 of
Middleburg's 318 yards in the
ground game for the Broncos.
The Broncos recorded 18 first
downs while Santa Fe 11 and
Middleburg held the ball on
offense for 29:45 and the
Raiders just 18:15.
Brooks also admitted that
while the offense struggled, the
defense gave up too many big
"The big plays came from the
mental errors on defense," said
Brooks. "We had many mental
mistakes and didn't tackle well.
We've got to change some
things with our personnel."
Santa Fe hosts its first home
game of the season on Friday
night as the Raiders try to turn
things around against Taylor'
County with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff

season after Tuesday night's 25-
12, 25-13, 25-10 home setback
to Dixie County.
"I would say last week at Fort
White we finally became a team
and we played our best
volleyball that we've played all
season. I don't know how we
did it losing all three games, but
we enjoyed ourselves out on the
court, we congratulated each
other after we hustled, we
moved our feet and we played
hard and we played together
which is the first time this team
has done it," said Bisaccia, who
has never played or coached
volleyball before this season.
"Now tonight (Tuesday) I felt
like we did the same, but we
didn't quite meet the
expectation that I wanted them
to meet. I liked the energy
better on Thursday, but the
effort was still good."
Tuesday night's loss to Dixie
County was Newberry's 41st
straight defeat dating back to
the 2005 season when the
Panthers won their sixth match
of the year before finishing that
campaign with a 1-18 mark.
The Panthers have won just six
matches since 2001 and have
suffered through winless
seasons in 2003 and last fall.
The Bears (3-1) opened the
Class 3A, District-5 match by
jumping out to a 12-6 lead in
the first game. The visitors led
and 13 ties. After being tied at
17-17, Santa Fe put together an
8-2 run to finish off the game.
Rosenboom finished strong in
the fourth, helping her team win
six of its last seven points with
four kills, a block and a tip in
With the match leveled at two
games apiece, Eastside took
early control of the fifth and
final game. The Rams led 9-4
at one point before the Raiders
raged back to tie it 11-11 thanks
to two straight Leventhal kills.
After a Rams' timeout, the
visitors came back on the court
and won the final four points of
"This is a team that has not
hit is peak by any means,"
defended Faulk. "It's real early
in the season. You hope that
through a loss they can learn,
grow and get better as a team."
The Raiders committed 13
service errors on the night but
did have some shining moments
as well. Santa Fe libero
Stephanie Moser had an
performance, turning in a team-
high 20 digs against the Rams.
Helping Moser out on defense
was sophomore Cynthia Smith
who recorded 15 digs of her
Pearl finished the night with a
18-10, before Kayla Clemens
used her jump serve, to reel off
six of her match-high 20 service
points to take control of the
game. Britni Robson closed out
the opening-game win for Dixie
County by firing one of her four
kills on the night.
It was much of the same in
the second game as Dixie
County raced out to a 13-4
advantage. A pair of service
points by Anna Thrasher pulled
Newberry to within 15-10, but
Dixie County sealed the game
with a' 10-3 run.
In the third and final game,
Dixie County, which has
advanced to the regional
playoffs in six of the last seven
years, held a slight 6-4 edge.
Taryn Hodge then collected five
straight service points as the
Bears stretched their lead to 11-
4. Clemens added four service
points before Ashley Cannon
closed out the match with
another four service points,
including an ace on match

Faulk says her team's
inability to be consistent on the
court has to be addressed.
"Consistency is the key.
Tonight we saw a little bit of
passiveness," admitted the
coach. "We were not fiery and
determined. Sometimes a team
can get too caught up in the
hype and forget they still have
to play every play, every game
and every match one at a time."

Michelle Cannon collected 14
service points with Kayla

in the win for the Bears, who
were 17-7 and district runner

In addition to the losing
mentality Bisaccia spoke of, she
has recently had to take
disciplinary action as she
dismissed three players due to a
violation of team rules.
Newberry, which hasn't been to
the regional playoffs since
1982, now has a roster of seven
"A big part of this program
has been discipline and I am
trying to be very consistent and
there were just some girls that
were just not prepared to handle
the rules," Bisaccia said. "I'm
fine with having seven that bust
their butt, ork hard and come
everyday ready,. to go and
excited to play volleyball."
On a positive note, the
Newberry junior varsity team
picked up its first win of the
season under head coach Kelly
Harris. The junior varsity
Panthers dropped the Bears, 25-
19, 25-19 to win its best two-
