waiting for


millions in


sewer system


funding

By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS In the next few
weeks the City of High Springs is
expected to receive approval to obtain
millions of dollars in loans and grants
from The United States Department of
Agriculture (USDA) Rural
Development. That funding will
mean that local residents living in
phases two and three of the city's
wastewater disposal system will
finally connect to the city sewer.
In August, High Springs
Commissioners gave approval for the
city to apply for a federal loan.
According to High Springs City
Manager Jim Drumm, the funds will
be kept in reserve by the federal
government once approval is granted
during a bond validation hearing to be
held in Gainesville. Drumm said the
money will be distributed to the city
once a bid to construct the project is
accepted.
Drumm is hopeful a bid will be
accepted by a contractor by the first of
next year.
Although the City of High Springs
is looking to obtain a 40-year loan to
front the connection costs, residents
would have just 10 years to repay their
portion of the fees since that's the
maximum period of time a legal
assessment can be applied, High
Springs city officials said.
The estimated cost of connecting a'
home to a city sewer line is about
$9,000 on an individual basis.
Drumm said the city is set to obtain
$4.5 million in loans and $6.5 million
in grants.
The city manager said 825
easements by residents who live in
phases two and three of the project
have been submitted to the City of
High Springs as of Wednesday.
Drumm said there are only 25
easements that haven't been turned in.
He urges those residents to submit the
easements before Oct. 10 so they can
still be included in possible funding
for the sewer system.
Drumm also encourages residents
who built homes in the area between

Alachua increases



final budget


By DAVID WISENER
Today Reporter
The Alachua City
Commission approved the final
city budget of close to $33
million at its regular meeting
Monday night, which is an
increase of $4 million over the
budget proposed two weeks ago
- but is still a decrease of nearly


$6 million from last year's
budget.
The city budget for fiscal
year 2007-08 is $32,953,159,
which amounts to a decrease of
$5,800,274 from the previous
budget. The budget underwent
some modifications from its
first hearing at the previous

The soon-to-open Ivy House in Alachua is the second restaurant opened by Marjorie
Hale who still runs the original location in Williston.


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA A much anticipated
restaurant is nearing its opening on
Alachua's Main Street. Ivy House
Restaurant will soon welcome guests into
a down home atmosphere in an historic
house which has not been open to the
general public since Govinda's, a
vegetarian restaurant, closed several years


Ivy House may be new to Alachua, but
not to the restaurant business. Founder
Marjorie Hale opened Ivy House
Restaurant in Williston, Florida in 1993
and it has been going ever since. Hale,
along with her daughter, Evelyn Nussel,
and granddaughter, Waica Huggins, still
run the Williston restaurant which

HIGH SPRINGS Over the
last several years, High Springs
resident Terry Maltbie has been
a standard fixture at High
Springs Commission meetings
sitting in the audience while
sharing a citizen's perspective
with Commissioners. At
Tuesday's special Commission
meeting, Maltbie sat from a
different vantage point than
he's accustomed as a High
Springs Commissioner.


On Tuesday City
Commissioners unanimously
selected him to fulfill the
remainder of former Mayor
Tom DePeter's Commission
term. Maltbie, along with High
Springs residents Karl Dowda,
Rick Testa, and Ross Ambrose
were under consideration to fill
the vacant seat.
Maltbie said serving High
Springs citizens as
Commissioner is an honor for
him.

early morning crash


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
ALACHUA One man is dead
after his truck hit a semi-trailer near the
Interstate 75 southbound entrance ramp
on U.S. 441 Monday morning in
Alachua.
According to Alachua Police
spokesman Darry Lloyd, at 7:03 a.m.
19-year-old Joshua Smith of
Jacksonville was driving his 1997 Ford
truck westbound on U.S. 441 when his
vehicle ran a red light and collided with
a semi truck driven by 60-year-old
William Ryan Jr. Ryan was attempting
to enter the southbound entrance ramp
of 1-75. Lloyd said Smith's driver's
side of the truck collided with the
passenger's side of Ryan's vehicle.

Fire Department receives boost from upcoming budget


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS As the
upcoming fiscal year budget for the
City of High Springs neared
completion, it was feared the city's fire
department would face significant cuts
in staffing and levels of service.
However, anxiety about the
department's future has been eased as
City of High Springs Commissioners


decided to maintain a fully staffed
department.
Ten firefighter positions are
included in the 2007-08 fiscal year
budget, including a lieutenant and a
vacant Fire Chief position. Originally
the proposed budget had only seven
positions, including staffing of four
fulltime firefighters. However, a
combination of the Commission's
resolve to maintain fire department


service levels and keep the city's
millage rate at 6.25 gave the City the
ability operate the department with a
full staff.
High Springs Fire Lieutenant Bruce
Gillingham said the Commission's
decision was a sense of relief for the
department. He admitted it would have
been difficult to provide a high level of
service to citizens with a trimmed
down staff. Gillingham said City


Commissioners have the best interest
of citizens and feels the fire department
is receiving full support from the
Commission.
"It's a big commitment on their
end," said Gillingham.
He said citizens should expect the
same level of services provided by the
fire department along with efficient
response to emergency calls. For a
routine medical emergency, two


firefighters will respond to a call, while
three firefighters will respond for a
major medical emergency.
According to Gillingham, the fire
department responded. to 1,422
emergency calls between Oct. 1, 2006
and Sept. 25, 2007.

He's a winner Again


Watson grabs nearly $300K in Play 4


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA It seems
Alachua City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr. is a lucky man.
Watson usually finds himself in
the spotlight when controversy
meets the City of Alachua -
which is often. But from time
to time, Watson also gets a bit
of attention for his knack of
winning. Over the years,
Watson has won money and
cars and more money.
Saturday, Watson won more
money $280,000 to be exact.
Watson is a longtime player
of Florida Lottery games.
Several years ago, he won
Florida's Fantasy 5, netting the
city manager some $125,000.
Watson was the envy of many
when he won a car during a
charity raffle.
While Saturday's winnings
were sizable, Watson said he
wins with some regularity. In
fact, Watson estimates he's had
decent winnings a dozen or so
times over the last four years.
With his $125,000 winnings
several years ago, Watson paid
the mortgage on his mother's
house. Now he plans to the
same for his own Alachua
home.


Watson proudly displays his most recent lottery winnings.


"l'm going to use every bit
of my winnings to pay the
mortgage on my home.
"Being debt free is going to
be great," Watson said.
When asked what his critics
will think of yet another
winning, Watson said, "I tell
them to play the lottery."
Playing the lottery is


something Watson makes a
hobby.
"I have fun playing the
lottery and of course, winning
large sums of money," said
Watson.
Watson is careful to point
out, however, that he also plays
responsibly.
"I would never negate my


responsibilities to pay my
bills," Watson said.
Watson didn't indicate how
often he plays or how much
money he spends on Florida
Lottery games, but said, "I'm
successful because I play
consistently and I have a
strategy."

PASSAGE Family Church launches



$100,000 Education Enrichment Initiative


Special to Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE PASSAGE Family
Church, under the leadership of Pastor
George and Lady Michele Dix, continues to
make a phenomenal impact in the
community reaching people where they
are.
On Sept. 18, PASSAGE launched its
Education Enrichment Initiative, which will
make available $100,000 to designated high
needs schools in Alachua County Public
Schools. Additionally, PASSAGE is
partnering with the school system to supply
tutors, mentors and other resources to raise


academic achievement.
The Education Enrichment Initiative
was developed from a partnership with two
neighboring schools, Rawlings Elementary
and Metcalfe Elementary. Volunteers and
financial assistance had been provided to
meet the growing needs of each institution.
At the kick off, both schools were provided
with an additional $1000 along with
volunteers to address their needs. The
commitment to excellence in education at
PASSAGE is supported by .. the
congregation of 1400 that provided funding
for the Initiative.


PASSAGE Family Church believes in
children and takes seriously its role in their
education through encouraging parental
involvement, financial support and prayer.
"We certainly appreciate the commitment
that Pastor and Lady Dix and the
congregation at PASSAGE have made to
our schools," said Superintendent Dan
Boyd. "They have set a wonderful example
for the entire community."

Xylitol


Q: What is zylitol?
A: Xylitol is a natural
sugar substitute. It is derived
most commonly from birch
trees or corn. It is increasingly
used in candy, gum, toothpaste
and mouthwash. Xylitol is
sometimes called wood sugar
or birch sugar. Unlike
traditional sugars, which
encourage growth of bacteria,
xylitol inhibits bacteria that
decay teeth. Some studies
have shown that xylitol can
even help repair teeth by
stimulating remineralization in
teeth that have already been
affected by decay, and that it


can reduce plaque. Because
xylitol is low in calories and is
absorbed more slowly than
sugar, it is safe for diabetics.
In 2005, the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration approved
the product as a dental decay
and periodontal disease
preventive. The FDA
recommends using xylitol two
or three times a day so that the
mouth and body are exposed
to about 10 grams, chewing
the gum or sucking on a candy
for at least five minutes.
Talk with your dentist
about the potential benefits of
xylitol in your diet.

Miracles of Jesus


foin us at these


local events


The miracles of Jesus greatly varied, as
did the.effects they had on different people
and groups. Sometimes they were looked
upon with indifference and at other times


they brought about the
conversion of sinners. The
Gospel of Saint Luke 18:9
gives an instance of both.
In the verses just prior
to this, Jesus had been
asked to leave the
Samaritan village, after
having cured a demoniac.
As Jesus entered another
village, 10 men with
leprosy saw Him and
begged Him to help them.
Amazingly, the
inhospitable actions of the
people in the previous
village actually helped the
lepers. Had it not been for
them, Jesus may not have


IA .





The Ven. John I
Leasure
All Saints Angli
Church, Gaines
A parish of the
Christian Episc
Church


gone to the village where the lepers were.
You see, lepers were not allowed to
approach anyone, not even their dearest
friends. So they "stood afar off," crying for
relief. A sense of need always makes
people more persistent in their pleas for
help. Unfortunately, most people want
physical disorders cured, rather than
spiritual problems. We need to have more
concern in getting help in the area we most
need it, that of course, being spiritually.
Jesus graciously and instantly answered
the pleas of the 10 lepers. He did not
pronounce them whole, or even promise to
heal them; He only ordered them to go to
the priests, who were appointed the judges


of leprosy. But this amounted to a virtual
promise of healing. And, more importantly,
it served as a test of their faith and
obedience. By their leaving immediately to
see the priest, it would prevent
anything or anyone else from being
able to discredit this miracle
performed by Jesus. It would make
the priests themselves have to
testify to its reality. When Christ
commanded the lepers to go, they
went obediently, expecting a
Scure-and they were not
disappointed. As they went, they
were restored by the almighty
power of Jesus, and they felt
E. themselves being restored to
perfect health.
can But the effects of the healing
produced different results upon
opal each of them. Nine of the men kept
going, thinking only about their
own comfort. They had what they
wanted and completely forgot their
Benefactor. They thought nothing about
paying any debt or expressing gratitude to
Christ..
One man, however, was aware of what
was required of him, and he desired to
acknowledge the mercies he had just
received. He ran back and threw himself
down at the feet of Jesus. With true
gratefulness, he glorified God as the One
who had cured him and gave thanks to
Jesus, as the One who wielded God's Grace.
When we look at this Scripture, we have
to wonder about the ingratitude found in the
human heart, as seen in the conduct of the
ungrateful lepers. While we think we


would never act like them, we actually can
see in them a true picture of the world at
large. How many earthly mercies have we
experienced throughout our lives? Being
delivered from sickness or just even waking
up every moring-freedom from want, or
relief in the midst of it, and the comfort we
receive in the company of our friends and
relatives.
Do we really think enough about it
being Jesus who bestows these blessings?
More importantly, we have received many
spiritual mercies from God and provisions
for the healing of our souls. The Son of
God Himself has suffered, that He might
"heal us with His stripes'"-forgiven and
saved by His Grace.
We have been promised deliverance
from the "leprosy" of sin, and asked to
become children and heirs of God. Don't
these mercies demand our gratitude? We do
not want our most Gracious Lord to look
upon us as acting like the ungrateful Jews.
Let us bow down before God and focus on
loving and adoring our Benefactor. Then,
even though the world may despise us, we
shall have the testimony of a good
conscience; and, "our record shall be on
high" in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Let the Lord see us kneel before Him,
earnest in our prayers and thanksgivings. In
His strength, let us go and show ourselves
to the world, compelling His very enemies
to acknowledge His work, and constrain
them by our lives to confess the worth of
Christ's grace. By this we shall honor God
on earth, and one day be exalted to magnify
His name in heaven.

Ocelot exhibit grand opening at SFCC


Teaching Zoo
Special to Alachua County Today
The Santa Fe Community College Teaching Zoo
is seeing spots and so can you by celebrating the
return of the ocelot. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 5 to
7, you can enjoy the grand opening of a brand new
exhibit that will display two gorgeous spotted
felines. Admission to the grand opening is free.
Emma, the female cat, is ready to explore her
new home in the coming days and in a couple of
months she'll be joined by a mate who is expected to
move in from the Texas Zoo in Victoria, Texas.
Ocelots are small to medium-sized jungle cats
weighing between 20 and 30 pounds. They can be
found throughout Central and South America and
many people describe the ocelot as a mini-jaguar.
Children may get a nose-to-nose interaction with the
cats by way of a special glass viewing area designed
right into their habitat.
It has been almost 15 years since ocelots have
been at the teaching zoo and their return is especially
sweet for the zoo's director.
"For years, ocelots were one of the signature
species at the zoo and we are very pleased to be a
part of their conservation program," said Director
Jack Brown. "We have set important milestones for


the care of these animals and we look forward to
many more generations of ocelots here at the zoo".
Emma and her new mate will be paired in hopes
of producing offspring and will therefore contribute
to the long-term preservation of the species. Ocelots
have been classified as a "vulnerable" species in the
past due to habitat destruction and hunting for their
fur coats.
The new exhibit was made possible by a
cooperative partnership between the Alachua
County Visitors and Convention Bureau, Holbrook
Travel, and Santa Fe Community College. Students
enrolled in the Zoo Animal Technology Program
built the ocelot exhibit under the supervision of
Assistant Zoo Curator Shawn Jacobs and other zoo
staffmembers. It is one of several projects scheduled
in an ambitious master plan to take the zoo to new
level.
Santa Fe's facility is the only teaching zoo in the
United States that is accredited by the Association of
Zoos andAquariums. Established in 1970, the Santa
Fe Community. College Teaching Zoo serves North
Central Florida by adding value to the lives of
students, enriching the community and improving
the future for wildlife.

SEWER SYSTEM:
Continued from page A I

Drumm:
Procrastination of
homeowners have
contributed to slow
responses
October 1998 and February
2006, and who are commonly
referred to as "tweeners," to
submit their easements soon so
they will be eligible to obtain a
lower connection fee.
Drumm said the sluggish
response by homeowners in
submitting easements has
caused the project to be behind
schedule. Drumm *said
procrastination, along with not
updating property ownership
records, are reasons for the
slow responses.
Once construction starts on
the sewer system in phases two
and three, it will take a year to
18 months to complete.

On the Bright Futures Soapbox


The on again off again controversy
surrounding Florida's Bright Futures
Scholarship Program is once again heating
up: Unfortunately, there are some who are


bent on diluting this
successful college
scholarship program until it
becomes no more than a
bureaucratic boondoggle
with little resemblance to the
original program or its
original intent.
Education is a valuable
commodity, not only to the
recipient, but to the
community at large. And
higher education is a true
heavyweight in this arena by
helping students develop into
more responsible citizens,
build a stronger economy,


ELLEN BOUKA
Today Columnis


and contribute to a healthier environment.
Florida's Bright Futures Scholarship
Program is a vital means to that end for
thousands of Florida's students each year.
Students can earn 75-percent or 100-percent
of their tuition at in-state schools, based on
high school grades and performance on


college-entrance exams.
From time to time, Bright Futures comes
under attack, typically when budgets are
tight and threats of tuition increases are


prevalent which means just about
any time.
The Bright Futures Scholarship
*, Program was developed as a way
to make college more affordable
and encourage more of the best
students to earn their degrees in
SFlorida. It was, and remains today,
in many ways a reward to Florida's
students who work hard to obtain
good grades while keeping their
talents in their home state. A good
idea for a variety of reasons, not
RI the least of which is that a higher
educated public leads to
communities with higher standards
of living and a better quality of life


for residents in terms of services, amenities,
access to medical facilities, etc.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau,
the monetary value of a college education in
the United States is substantial. Workers
ages 18 and over with bachelors degrees
earn an average of $51,206 a year, while


those with a high school diploma earn
$27,915. Tack on an advanced degree and
those earnings average $74,602 annually.
But perhaps even more importantly,
higher education yields significant benefits
to its recipients and society as a whole.
College graduates are also more likely to
have higher rates of community
involvement such as volunteering and
voting as well as engaging in behaviors that
improve their health. Additionally, there is
a clear relationship between higher levels of
education and community-wide higher
wages, and lower unemployment and
poverty rates.
A high school student who makes good
grades in school and on college placement
exams has proven he or she has what it takes
to succeed in college. ,
These accomplishments weren't the
result of happenstance, but rather, hard work
and commitment.
The State of Florida, through lottery
revenues, is offering these students a ticket
to higher education if they meet the
requirements and maintain a scholarly level
of studies.
In fact, the Florida Bright Futures


Scholarship Program has helped more than
300,000 Florida students attend a
postsecondary institution.
Bright Futures is a good use of lottery
funds and it helps keep Florida's brightest
students in Florida a good investment in
my book.
There are many arguments about the
impact of lotteries, good and bad.
In this case, the good resulting from the
Florida lottery, is most certainly the shining
example of Bright Futures, the opportunity
it offers for the education of our children,
and the consequent benefits to society.
Bright Futures is indeed an opportunity
for students from all socioeconomic
backgrounds to.attend college.
Make the grade, earn the scholarship.
It's that simple.
Admittedly, there is much wrong with
higher education funding.
Bright Futures isn't one of them.

MALTBIE:
Continued from page A 1


"I consider it an honor and
privilege to serve the citizens of
High Springs. I'm going to do
the best I can."
Maltbie said a goal of his as
Commissioner is assisting the
Commission and having it run
smoothly.
City Commissioner Kirk
Eppenstein said he was
impressed with the field of
applicants for the Commission
seat, but said Maltbie's
involvement as a regular
audience member at
Commission meetings stood out
in selecting him. Due to
Maltbie's familiarity with
commission proceedings,
Eppenstein believes the
transition should be
straightforward.
"We can have a seamless
transition between Mr. DePeter
and whoever is elected in
November," said Eppenstein.
Maltbie, who will leave the
Commission after November's
City Commission election, said
on Tuesday he has no grandiose
ideas planned. However, he
relishes being an active member
of the High Springs community,

need in the area for world class
money management.
Murray has enjoyed' his
relationship with the people of
Alachua for the last two years.
"We've enjoyed a warm
acceptance and relationship
with the community," said
Murray.
Murray, 44, was born in
Detroit, but raised in
Indianapolis. While growing
up in Indianapolis and living
near the Indianapolis Motor
Speedway, Murray became
fascinated with cars and the
speed that came with them.
However, after high school in
1980 Murray decided to join the
United States Coast Guard
because he was intrigued by the
opportunities the Coast Guard
offered.

either as an audience member at
City Commission meetings or
as Commissioner. He said
being active in community
affairs makes him
knowledgeable about issues
facing High Springs.
"I'm aware of the issues that
have been in front of them,"
said Maltbie.
High Springs Commissioner
Jim Gabriel believes that
Maltbie is up to task.
"It's important that he steps
in and is up to speed with the
Commission," said Gabriel.
During Tuesday's meeting,
High Springs Mayor Larry
Travis said Maltbie's devotion
in attending Commission
meetings regularly was
remarkable. He said Maltbie's
active participation as a citizen
at Commission meetings and
being a member of the city's
Public Safety Board earned him
the right to be Commissioner.
"This gentleman fulfilled
the right to be here," said
Travis.
High Springs City Manager
Jim Drumm said Maltbie has
already made a contribution to


the Commission because of his
familiarity with city
government.
"His contribution to the City
Commission is that he's already
up to speed on what's going
on," said Drumm.
Drumm said Maltbie is in a
unique position as a City
Commissioner because he
wasn't voted into office and that
his term will last only two
months. "It's unique how he
applied, interviewed, and was
sworn in, in a matter of days,"
said Drumm.
Even though Maltbie's
tenure on the Commission is
short, Drumm said he will do an
effective job for the city.
"Travis cautioned that
Maltbie will have a different
perspective sitting. as a
Commissioner instead of an
audience member because of
the tough decisions the
Commission has to make.
"It will be an eye awakening
experience for him," said
Travis.

Manager Jim Drumm Tuesday evening inside the High Springs Civic Center.


community involvement is important to Murray


career took him to bases in
South Carolina, Clearwater,
Alaska, Alabama, Chicago, and
Elizabeth City, North Carolina.
During his career in the service,
he worked in various
supervisory and management
positions and also earned a
degree in Business
Administration with high
honors from Columbia College
in Missouri.
While in college, Murray
became interested in finance
because of the business insight
experience it brought.
"It was enjoyable and it
made sense because it showed
the real world of business," said
Murray.
After his career in the Coast
Guard in which Murray served
as a Master Chief Aviation
Survival Technician and retired


as the second most senior rank
in the United States Coast
Guard in that capacity, Murray
was looking toward the future
and seeking a position in
finance. A friend of Murray's in
the Coast Guard told him his
father was a senior partner in
Edward Jones. Murray later
had dinner with the partner and
became convinced Edward
Jones was the right fit for his
new career.
Edward Jones,
headquartered in St. Louis, has'
seven million clients in the
United States, United Kingdom,
and Canada. The company has
been named Smart Money
magazine's number one full
service broker two of the last
three years. Murray says that
what makes Edward Jones
unique is that each office


employs only one financial
advisor instead of an office with
a number of advisors.
When working with clients,
Murray likes to find out the
needs, wants, and legacy each
client desires. Murray classifies
needs as an individual's ability
to pay bills or afford an
emergency, while wants may be
desires to travel or go hunting or
fishing.. Murray said a legacy is
what each client will eventually
leave to their family, friends, or
an organization.
Murray says that Edward
Jones' Alachua office enables
clients to access the highest
quality financial service and
advice at a convenient location.
"My clients don't have to
drive to Orlando or Jacksonville
to benefit from world class
financial management," said


Murray.
Murray lives in Alachua
with his wife of three years,
Kat, and their son, Josiah, who
will turn two in October.
Murray also has two daughters,
Julia, 17 and Lauren, 15, who
both attend Santa Fe High
School. Murray is active with
the First Baptist Church of
Alachua and is a director of the
Alachua Chamber of Commerce
and board member of the
Alachua Business League.
Murray also volunteers his
time with the Santa Fe Kiwanis
Club and has been a guest
speaker at the Alachua Lions
Club. "The thing I enjoy about
living in Alachua is giving back
to the community," said Murray.
When asked what the most
satisfying aspect of his job is,
Murray said being able to


provide a practical and
achievable solution to a client
about an issue that was
troubling to them and having
them understand why and how
it solves their problem.
"When they understand it, it
makes sense to them, and you
can see it in their eyes," said
Murray.

BUDGET:
Continued from page A

Millage rate dropped revenue by just $168K


City Commission meeting on Sept. 10, as
grants,' carry forwards, and capital projects
funds were included in the final reading.
City revenue will be affected by the
implementation of tax cuts, including a
reduced millage rate that was also approved
on the final hearing at the Commission
meeting. The need for city budget cuts had
been attributed to the decreased tax revenue.
by Alachua Commissioners and City
Manager Clovis Watson, Jr. at the Sept. 10
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 $168,000.
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.
Some issues concerning aspects of the
amount Alachua will owe the county for
particular services remain open. In
particular, Commissioner Jean Calderwood
asked Watson if the amount the city pays to
Alachua County for providing a fire station
would remain the same, which was a
follow-up to a question she had asked at the
Sept. 10 meeting.
"We do not concur with the county's
assessment of service fees," Watson said
regarding the status of negotiations for the

Michele Bisaccia said she and her Newberry
High School volleyball team are trying to find
a way to stay positive during this season
which seems to just be a continuation of the
Panthers' past struggles.
Despite suffering a tough

was probably the best her

Bisaccia the Panthers could not
build off that performance.
Instead of building some momentum from
those last two games with the Bears in which
they were close to winning, Newberry got off
to a slow start on Tuesday evening and
dropped its second match to district-foe Fort
White this fall.
The Indians handed Newberry a 25-13, 25-
14,.25-16 setback which kept the Panthers (0-
10, 0-7) winless through 10 matches this
season.
Tuesday night's loss was Newberry's 46th

SNewberry picks up
second straight win
over Union County
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
NEWBERRY Prior to last season,
the Newberry High School football
team dropped four consecutive games
to Union County, including a pair of
losses by 40 or more points.
But on Friday night the Panthers got
a little payback.
Newberry rushed for 324 yards and
held Union County without any
rushing yards in the first half as the
Panthers routed the Tigers 46-0 in the
District 4-2B opener for both teams at
Panther Stadium.

last seven meetings with Union

, The Panthers held the Tigers to 140
yards of total offense and posted their
first shutout since blanking P.K.

0, 1-0) is off to its best start through
four games since the 2004 team and
last year's squad each opened with a
3-1 mark.
"I'm just real proud of them (the

SHOme game against another

Not that Mikey's looking
ahead, especially if the Gators
have too much revenge on their
minds from last year's loss to
Auburn, and fall in a trap game,
but Meyer couldn't have drawn
up a more textbook way of
progressive preparation for this
young team for LSU a week
from now.

Okay, I'll have a sip...but just
a little one though
Despite the Superman-like
performance Tim Tebow had
against Tennessee, Mikey
wasn't quite ready to drink the
Tebow for Heisman Kool-Aid
just yet.
Actually, it wasn't until the
super-sophomore had a rather
human-like day in Oxford this
past Saturday that Mikey will
now begin to seriously entertain
the thought of Tebow at least be
in the running for an invitation
to the Downtown Athletic Club
come December.
Yes, Tebow still had mind-
boggling numbers against Ole,


Miss (261 yards passing and 166
yards rushing for 427 yards of
total offense), but it was the way
Tebow single-handedly yanked
the Gators up and fireman-
carried them to a win over the
Rebels is what the Heisman
Trophy should be, and
historically has been, all about.
It's not always about gaudy
numbers.
But, when you mix those
numbers with a good character
guy who practically wills his
team to victory, even when the
other teams knows he's going to
be toting the rock, is an entirely
different story altogether.
We'll see if I change my
mind, but for now, Mikey agrees
that Tebow seriously belongs in
the Heisman discussion now.

Now entering the game,
please welcome... The Kitchen
Sink?
Don't be surprised if the Santa
Fe Raider football team breaks
the huddle with a stainless steel,
double-bowl under-mount basin
with disposal attachment
somewhere on the offense soon.
That's because Raiders' first-
year head coach Bart Brooks has
shown he will throw in the-
kitchen sink, if necessary, to get
things'going on offense.
It's no secret that Mikey was,
and still is, supportive of former
Santa Fe coach Scott Pritchett,


but in his short time at the helm,
Brooks seems to be much better
at something Pritchett struggled
with from time to time the
willingness to do whatever it
takes to shake things up.
Against Dunnellon last
Friday, Brooks was trying
everything short of that sink -
crisscrossing offensive linemen,
double passes and putting two
quarterbacks in the backfield at
the same time.
And, it almost worked.
The Raiders closed the gap to
20-7 and seemed to have
momentum moving.the ball, but
execution mistakes, turnovers
and (Mikey will go ahead and
say it even though Brooks can't)
awful officiating prevailed.
Brooks even greased a
football in practice last week to
help punter Colin Mixon
prepare for possible wet
conditions.

Get well John
Obviously, NASCAR is still
king of all auto racing, but when
it comes to drag racing, there's
truly only one king, and that's
John Force.
Force, a 14-time funny car
world champion, took a wild
ride on Sunday.
Shortly after passing the
finish line in a second-round win
over Kenny Bernstein,
something suddenly went wrong
with Force's 7,000-
horsepowered mount, basically
splitting in two at nearly 320
miles per hour.
The front half of Force's car
crossed the centerline and struck
Bernstein's car, but Force was
still in the back half of his car
further back on the track.
All that was left of that part of
the car was-the rear-end, two rear
tires and the mangled cockpit
where Force was trapped upside
down.
Force, who was flown via
helicopter to the hospital,


underwent surgery to repair
various, serious injuries to his
legs, wrists and hands.

Roving, historic reporter
Mikey got more than a few
strange looks walking around on
the Santa Fe sideline last Friday
night in Dunnellon with a
hands-free attachment in his ear.
What most people didn't
know was Mikey was doing the
first-ever, live sideline reporting
job from a Santa Fe sideline for
WDVH 101.7 FMradio.
With a one-hour lightening
delay and the necessity for news
on the decision to postpone or
resume, no one could have
picked a better night to have a
roving reporter with a mic.

Speaking of Raider football
broadcasts
Not only can Santa Fe football
fans pack their FM radio
headphones when heading out to
the game on Friday nights to
listen to Chris Malphurs (play-
by-play), Hal Brady (color
analyst) and yours truly (live
from the sideline) on WDVH

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2007 B3
mmw


SANTA FE:
Continued from page Bl

Santa Fe's first-year head coach
Bart Brooks. "Our offense was
out of sync all night. Every
time we got the ball rolling,
there would be a fumble, bad
snap, penalty or something. We
didn't execute when we needed
to."
The game itself had an hour
and fifteen minute delay due to
lightening strikes in the area;
however, the game did go
underway, albeit finishing much
later than normal. Santa Fe (1-
3, 0-1) gave up nearly 300 yards
on the ground to the Tigers
while allowing six touchdowns
and a safety.
The home team's first
touchdown came on
Dunnellon's first possession of
the game. The Tigers took
advantage of a Raider mishap
on a punt and set up shop at the
'Raider 25 yard line. Two plays
later, Dunnellon (3-1, 1-0) took
a four-yard scamper in for a
touchdown for a 6-0 lead.
After a few possessions and
an hour-plus lightening delay,
the Tiger offense found pay dirt
again on a 29-yard touchdown
run.
"We went in the locker room
and we talked about
maintaining focus and making
adjustments on defense and the
offense executing," said Brooks
about the lightening delay. "We
got into a lot of talk about the
game possibly getting cancelled
and when we came out we
weren't ready to go."
The Raiders found some
success with a little trickery
midway through the second
quarter as sophomore Frank
Snead pitched the ball to
quarterback Will Scaff who in
turn completed the flea flicker
with a 20-yard pass to Snead.
Santa Fe was knocking on the
door of the red zone, but a
fumble gave the Tigers the ball.
Two possessions later,
Dunnellon scored on a 32-yard
pass play with 1:33 left in the
opening half for a 20-0
advantage.
On the Tigers' first drive of
the second half, the home team
started at their own 32 yard line
and marched inside the Raider
red zone. That's when Santa Fe
found a spark behind junior
Jamal White who took an
interception 91 yards for a
Raider touchdown. A Collin
Mixon extra point pulled Santa
Fe to within two possessions,
20-7 with 7:11 left in the third
quarter.


MIKE DAROZA/Alachua County Today
Raider assistant coach Dave Doner talks to junior Jamal White. White
recorded Santa Fe's only score of the night against the Tigers on
Friday with an interception return for a touchdown.


After stopping the Tigers on
their ensuing possession, the
Raider offense had an
opportunity to make it a one
possession affair starting at
their own 20 yard line early in
the final quarter. After a first
down, Santa Fe moved the ball
near midfield, but could not
convert on a fourth-and-five
play. Two plays later,
Dunnellon converted on a 26-
yard touchdown run for a 20-
point lead.
In the final five minutes, the
Tigers scored'two touchdowns
and recorded a safety for the
one-sided victory.
"We're not finishing games
and that's coaching, we've got
to better prepare them to finish
ball games," admitted Brooks.
"We can talk about it all year
but that's not doing anything;
we're done talking we have to
come out and do it on Friday
night."
The Santa Fe defense
struggled, giving up 298 yards
on the ground to the Tigers on
46 carries while allowing 57
yards through the air on two
completions. The Raider
offense didn't help much, with
just 53 ground yards on 36
carries and 52 yards through the
air on five completions.
Dunnellon recorded 16 first
downs while Santa Fe picked


up just seven. The Tigers Were
penalized 13 times for 95 yards
while the Raiders collected 10
penalties for 85 yards.
Santa Fe faces Union County
on Friday, a team that is also 1-
3 and is coming off a 46-0
thumping from Newberry.
Brooks reported that Scaff
may not start on Friday due to
illness. The head coach said
that, it will be a game-time
decision and that Snead or Leon
Williams may take the first
snap.
"Everything is still ahead of
us," maintained Brooks.
"We've got three homes games
in a row and if we can put
together a 3-0 stint, we're right
back where we need to be.
"There's no secret that Union
County is not the Union County
of the past. This team (Santa
Fe) has the ability to compete
with anybody. The problem is
which team is going to show
up; are we going to play two
quarters or four quarters. Union
County may not have C.J.
Spiller but they always play
hard.
"The game should be
competitive and we should pull
out the win if we execute and
play our game."

More cowbells


Parkville Mayor Kathy
Dusenbery surveyed the plans for
the first ever "Tour of Missouri"
and made one immediate decree.
"More cowbells," she
declared.
And so began one of the more
fascinating stories I've ever
watched from a front-row seat -
the birth of a bicycle tour, and how
one small Midwestern town and its
mayor helped make it special.
Most of the small retailers
from Parkville's historic
downtown met with the mayor,
city officials and one another
several weeks beforehand. The
townspeople were excited because
the official map of the tour had the
Kansas City leg of the race coming
through nearby Parkville twice -
one going, and one coming back.
"This is a real opportunity for
Parkville to get international
exposure," Dusenbery, the
picturesque Missouri town's perky
mayor, told a meeting of the
town's stakeholders. "This is a real
excuse to party."
Of course, not many in
attendance could even name one
professional cyclist beyond Lance
Armstrong, and none could tell
what to expect in terms of a crowd.
Speculation was rampant. Would
the crowds justify closing down
t~e streets and hang a festival?
State officials certainly thought it


was going to be a big deal.
"We believe it will be the
largest sporting event in the history
of Missouri," Lt. Gov. Peter
Kinder said in a statement. "We
hope to bring millions of dollars to
our state's economy and myriad
economic benefits to Missouri."
And so, on Tuesday, Sept. 11,
the first official "Tour of Missouri"
began. The race, a six-day, six-
stage race that covered nearly 600
miles across the state, began with
an 85-mile circle around Kansas
City. Attracted by postcard perfect
skies and weather to match, .fans
did line the route of the racers,
perhaps not as many as predicted,
but they did come.
There was even news from the
world of cycling to report. The
Discovery Channel team, winners
of eight of nine Tour de France
titles, announced just before the
start that this would be its last race
on American soil.
But in Parkville, not many
seemed to care. There were
drummers drumming and school
bands blaring (a small-town secret
to getting people to come to their
Main Street parades and events?
Invite the kids ... the parents are
sure to follow). On the streets,
vendors sold kettle corn, and decks
of patrons drinking beer, wine and
lemonade cheered as the bikers
sped through the center of town.
They were there only for an
instant, then they were gone.
But there were bells, all right.
The mayor had convinced a local
bank to sponsor the cowbells (a
cycling tradition in Europe) and
when the ride came through, they


had to feel like they were in a small
European village.
"That was great," Dusenbery
said with a grin, off to the next
project to lead cheers for.
And that's how events like this
happen.

Continued from page B1
Rosenboom kill gave the
Raiders the final point and the
15-point win. Rosenboom had
four kills in the second game
and led her team with 13 kills
for the match to go along with
three aces a pair of blocks and
seven digs.
The third game appeared to
be more of a formality than any
thing else with Santa Fe in the
driver's seat all the way. The
Raiders led 8-4 in the final
game when Smith stepped
behind the service line. She led
her team to a 7-0 run sparked by
three aces. Pearl had three kills
in that spurt with Rosenboom
picking up the other point off a
kill.
Santa Fe clinched the final
game behind the serving of
senior Leah Leventhal. Pearl
recorded the final point of the
match on a tip.
"Traditionally Keystone has
been notorious for having a
competitive team that doesn't
give up on any ball, any play,
good hitters, good blockers and
a well-rounded team,"

collegiate career by playing 13

humbled by his days of

Ham. "There are so many other

Josh Pardo sacked Union
County quarterback Chris
Alexander for an eight-yard
loss. Alexander then threw an
incomplete pass on fourth down,
giving the ball back to Newberry
with 31 seconds left before the
break.
"It was good because they had
that one drive going and I was
thinking before halftime, I really
didn't want them to score
because I didn't want them to
get anything going," Keeler
said. "We held them down the
whole first half but if they go in
there and score before halftime
then we have to deal with that
coming out."
But Newberry picked up right
where it left off, stopping the
Tigers on their opening drive of
the second half. That helped set
up Woods' eight-yard
touchdown run as the Panthers
were in control at 32-0 at the
5:23 mark of the third period.

suffered through winless
seasons in 2003 and last fall.
"It (the losing) definitely
bothers them. As a team we're
definitely frustrated, it would
be so encouraging to get a win',
said Bisaccia, who is also
Newberry's softball coach. "I
think somewhere along the line
it is not so much you get used to
it, it's just that you kind of learn
to handle it a little better. We're
going to keep working and keep
staying positive."
Although the Panthers did
show glimpses of scrappy play
throughout the match, Fort
White's Charlette Demko and
Erica Rossell proved to be too
much to handle. Demko, a
junior, fired 13 kills and
delivered nine service points,
including five aces, while
Rossell, a sophomore, collected
a match-high 18 service points
including five aces.
With the opening game tied
at 3-3, Rossell reeled off eight
service points to give the
Indians (5-6, 3-3) a comfortable
11-3 edge. An ace from Stacy
Sistrunk moved the Indians'
advantage to 18-6 before
Demko's service point closed
out the first game.
In the second game,
Newberry did not trail Fort
White by more than four points
until Demko took over midway
through the game. The visitors
led 12-9 before Demko ripped
off eight straight service points,
including four aces, to give her
team a commanding 20-9 edge.
Another pair of service points
from Sistrunk down the stretch
helped the Indians grab the
second game and a 2-0 lead in
the match.
Newberry showed life and
got off to a nice start in what
ended up being the third and
final game of the- night.
Monique Williams collected
three service points as the
Panthers took an early 3-0 lead.
Newberry hung tough .and led
11-10 at one point, but that
proved to be its last lead of the
match. Demko had four kills

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2007


Six Raiders turn in



personal best times _


* Santa Fe places
14th at the Buchholz
Bobcat Classic
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
Although the Santa Fe High
school boys cross country team
finished 14th out of 18 teams at
the 7th Annual Buchholz Bobcat
Classic last Saturday, head coach
Tommie Turner was pleased to
see six of his runners turn in
personal best times.
Junior Drew Burgett was the
first Raider to cross the finish line
as he posted a personal-best time
of 18:08 to place 30th out of 126
runners at the event that was held
at Santa Fe Community College.
"Overall I'm pleased with what
they did at that course and against
the competition we faced," said
Turner, who is in his 21st year as
Santa Fe's head cross county and
track and field coach. "It didn't
show with us finishing 14th but
against the teams that were there
that was pretty good."
Fellow junior Jay Jett turned in
a personal-best time of 18:51 to
place 52nd, with John Stickles,
another junior, placing 87th with a
personal-best time of 20:47.
Sophomore Thomas Edgemon
was 95th with a personal-best
time of 21:18 while freshman
Adam Soistman was 100th with a
personal-best time of 21:30 to
round out Santa Fe's top five.


Turner said Rufus White, who
ran in the junior varsity race on
Saturday, turned in a personal-
best time of 21:33 which would
have placed him as Santa Fe's
sixth finisher for the race.
Senior Thomas Jones did finish
sixth for Santa Fe with a time of
23:04, while senior Ryan
Tenbroeck was seventh with a
time of 24:06. Only the top five
runners for each team score
points.
But Turner admitted that he had
a feeling his team was going to do
well at the meet.
"I could tell that they were
ready. On Thursday we went over
there and ran the course," Turner
said. "I never had a group of kids
that wanted to do that before. A lot
of places we can't do that, but
we're close (to Santa Fe
Community College) and they
wanted to run on the course that
day."
In all, the final result was a
pleasant surprise to the veteran
coach.
"I'm surprised by the whole
team, it was a team effort," Turner
said. "We're improving, if we can
get five guys (to run) under 21
minutes we can be pretty good."
Neptune Beach Fletcher's Alex
Schanen won the race with a time
of 16:28, while host school
Buchholz won the team-title at its
own event.
On the girls side, senior


F vq"


Corinne Larsen was the first
Raider to cross the finish line as
she posted a time of 25:24 to
place 77th out of 120 runners.
Sophomore Rebecca Tenbroeck
turned in a time of 27:03 to place
96th, with senior Aimee Graber
placing 102nd with a time of
27:36. Senior Lizzi Condo was
109th with a time of 28:08 to
round out Santa Fe's top four.
Turner said that Alyssa Rivas
missed the meet on Saturday and
because five runners are needed
for team scoring, Santa Fe was
not included in the final team
standings.
"I think they are getting better,
we just have to get more mileage
in and get better conditioning,"
Turner said. "I think they can be
competitive as a group, they want
to stay within a minute of each
other."
Jacksonville Bishop Kenny's
Sarah Davis won the race with a
time of 19:48 and helped lead
Bishop Kenny to the team title as
well.
The Raiders are back in action
on Friday as they head down to
the Whispering Pines Invitational
held at Whispering Pines Park in
Inverness. Turner said the girls
race is scheduled to start at 5:15
p.m. with the boys slated to begin
at 6 p.m.

AIACHUACOUNTY-TODAY Art Festival at Thornebrook CTOBER 6 & 72007


Poster Artist &


Best in Show 20(

Statement by Miriam Novack
I am both a sculptor (wo.ing with mahogany and
alabaster) and an acrylic painter. The sculptural
ceramic vases I've created have allowed me to combine
both my love of sculpture and of painting.
This particular vase is formed by a series of coils
which rise to create the sensual shape of a
woman. When the white clay was bone dry, I carved
the two profiles of a man and a woman; the lace-like
filigree; arid the texture with a Dremel tool. The vase
is then fired (low fire) and painted with acrylic.
Each of my ceramic creations is a one of a kind
piece, made to be a unique visual and tactile
Sexpernence

Biography of Miriam Novack
Nliriam Novack graduated from the Brooklyn College of the City of New
York with a BA, %with Honors in Art. She has been exhibiting in numerous...
art shows since 1979, and has won many ribbons and awards. She was on
the January cover of Sunshine Artists Magazine in 1985. She has been
selected four times to be the poster artist for Florida fine art shows, the
most recent one being special double poster design for the 2007 Annual


Thornebrook Art Festival.
She will have a one-woman show
entitled "Evolution" in Fall 2007 at

past six veair. Miriam has been the -rT -
director of the Art at the Oaks Fine
Art Show in Gainesville. Her work is
currently on display at the Gainesville
Artisan's Guild and the Harn m-
Museum Gift Shop.
Miriam is both a sculptor (working
in mahogany and alabaster) and a painter and has created works that have,.
combined, for her the most appealing aspects of each medium.
Always lookingfor new challenges, Miriam has also created a line of
sculptural ceramic vases. They have been a 3-D canvas for her acrylic
paintings, incorporating her own signature painting style. Each vase is .
hand carved with a lace like filigree and painted with acrylic. Miriam has.-,
found a medium which allows her to combine both her love of sculpture
and of painting.
Her latest acrylic paintings are a celebration of color and intricately
interlocking and overlapping-designs. Her love of complex details so
evident in her ceramics, has found new expression in this latest evolution of
her work'


Festival Highlights




Eleanor Blair Gainesville, FL. Painter
Blair has been painting North Central Florida since she moved to the area
in 1971. Blair paints in oil on canvas and her work combines visual accuracy with painterly
brush-work and rich color. Florida landscape is her primary subject, but her portraits, still
life, interiors and architecture studies demonstrate her fine draftsmanship and sense of light.
"I search for beauty in the natural world and in everyday things. I work primarily in oil,
from life and from my photographs. I love to see how light transforms objects and places,
and to capture that transformation in paint."





Jean Yao Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Fiber Palm Baskets
Yao is a former potter and Ikebana designer and learned basket weaving from her mother, an
artist and teacher from Taiwan. It was her mother's love for nature and the beauty of her art
with the use of natural materials that inspired Jean to pursue this form of art. Yao initially i
began combining the traditional way of weaving, with a mixture of Eastern and Western
designs, creating an entirely new original style. Yao now has created over 50 original basket
designs. Yao chooses the flower stalks of the coconut, royal and queen palms of Florida to
create her hand-woven baskets. By combining the beautiful versatile materials of two or
three different palms, she can achieve interesting shapes and effects with a variety of
different colors and textures.







8 ALAcA CON- ToDAY Art Festival at Thornebrook OCTOBER 6 &72007



Susan Gott Tampa, FL. Glass
Gott has worked in glass for over 20 years and specializes in cast glass to create one of-a-kind sculptures for
commissions and galleries. Her work embodies her interest in mythological imagery, symbolism, and
philosophies from historic and ancient cultures as she investigates those ideas using glass a sculptural
medium. The elements of this ancient, visual language express the union of human being and nature.
These images have become enmeshed in her thought and in her art to create a new Mythos in glass. The
resulting glass, with primitive qualities and metaphors, are a visual representation of the cycles of life. Gott
frequently works with a rigid sand mold technique carving large forms directly into the sand mold and
"paints" images with powdered glass. Images, inclusions, and "windows" are planned and created in
advance, however the parts must be placed into the glass wl~e it is still molten. Intuitive decisions must be
made as she manipulates the hot glass before it cools.


Barbara Batchelder Summerfield,
FL. Painter
Batchelder began painting in her middle 4-1's after a i
career as a wife, mother and accountant took precedence
for the first part of her life. For the last 12 years she:
Shas been a member of the Ocala Art Group and has
served as treasurer for most of those \ears. She is also a
member of Gallery East and continues to enter her art
into festivals both in Florida and Maine I her original
." home). Batchelder likes to paint man\y subjects, but is
known for her animals. She paints in acry-lics and
enjoys making people happy by making them forget theyN
are looking at a canvas and instead believe they are
looking at a seaside landscape, a favorite animal or a
beautiful flower.

A watercolorist, Dillard is a member of the SuncoaIt
S watercolor r Society and has been shown il, NIu Veumrn

artwork "Marshall Law" was used to kick off the 50th

Manatee Counties. "Dillard's powerful paintings offer
a singular take on the African American experience
A and are worth the trip to Bradenton" sa\si Kathie
Mloon and Frank Tucciarone of the Sara.ota .Arts and
Entertainment Magazine.








Elaine Laurent Sarasota, FL. Mixed Media
Laurent loves the wonderful visual and performing arts that Sarasota is well known fr,. and has alwayvj\
been attracted to anything unique and eye-catching. She saw some poorly made Cigar Box Pur-e in a
nice boutique for over $200. She loved the concept, but was disappointed in the quality and lack oft
artistic imagination. She began designing Cigar Box Purses in 2002. Each of her piece, is a one-of-a-kjnd
design using just about anything to create these fun and functional objects. It is a ne\er-end ng effort to
create each one as a individual piece, unlike any other using no one technique and no patterns

Geoff Walsh Sarasota, FL. Ceramics
Walsh, a native of the northeast, graduated with a BS in Metallurgy and Materials Science and moved to
Florida in 1971. In 1973, he began his pottery training and was invited to apprentice in the pottery shop of
the Colson School of Art in Sarasota in 1975. Since 1977, Walsh has been producing clay work in his own
workshop. "Working the wet material has always been the most satisfying part of the clay process for me.
Taking a lump of dirt and turning it into something is still an exciting experience. I think my engineering
background influences my 0work In terms of style, it lends concern for a clean, crisp look. I'm also of a ..
mind that functional pots should function and that good craftsmanship is important in every piece,"






Lou McMurray Dunedin,
FL. Wood Sculpture
McMurray sculpts American Folk Art in
his classic trucks and buses and his
current series is a representation of over
25 unique one of-a-kind models of the
1920's and 1930's. His work has been displayed in Tiffany's of New York and
he currently has a studio and gallery in Dunedin, FL. A retired Art College
Professor he has also worked as a magazine illustrator, a creative director and
graphic designer throughout the United States. His work is in corporate and
private collections in the United States, Canada and Europe.




Galina Herndon Roswell, GA. Painter
Herndon was born and raised in the Ural Mountains of Russia and studied Meteorology in Odessa,
Ukraine; Human History in Zaporozhe, Ukraine; History and Culture of Art in Moscow. For 14 years
she worked with archaeology expeditions across the former Soviet Union, digging at the sites and then
producing technical illustrations for the published results. Herndon began self-taught oil painting in 1999
and since then has garnered many awards in regional art shows.



Gregg Billman Gainesville, Fl. Mixed Media
As a Marine on leave in Thailand from Vietnam, Billman learned the ancient art of papermaking,
using traditional tools. After studying at Kent State, he incorporated the old techniques with
modern tools to produce the paper he makes today. Billman produces monoprints beginning with
an original drawing, engraving the design onto a wood block. This process can take between 40 -
600 hours. Next, he forms the paper over the wood engraving with an antique flatbed press. After
embossing, the image is painted with acrylics. Billman also produces digital art by drawing an
image and painting in oil; the
.image is then rendered digitally
=.with paint and pastel
applications. He then prints the
image on paper or canvas made
from 100% cotton fiber using
C, pigmented inks. The image is
embellished using acrylics or
watercolors to accentuate the
.. colors and texture. The process
produces a depth of color -
impossible to produce with any
.C one media.






ALACHUA CONTY TODAY Art Festival at Thornebrook OCTOBER 6 & 7,2007


Patsy Lindamood Gainesville, FL. Painter
Consumed for years by her duties as CEO of a small credit union,
Lindamood did not embark upon a career as an artist until late in
2001. On a bank holiday, she spent her day, on a whim,
attempting a rendition of the howling wolf screensaver that
frequently cycled up on her laptop. An artist was born that day. A
highly analytical person, her approach to her art is that of solving a
puzzle finding the combination of
colors and shapes, lines and strokes,
form and composition, requisite to
portray a truly lifelike animal
portrait. She has sought out zoos
and wildlife parks in search of
subjects. Lindamood works
primarily in color pencil together
with water soluble wax pastels and
traditional soft pastels, as well as
Graphite, finding that she can
H& readily control these dry media to
render highly detailed compositions.
Her emerging personal style is
,LL I marked by strong, colorful yet
infinitely detailed compositions.


Monica De
Ceramics


Campo Interlachen, FL.

De Campo graduated in 1975 as an Art
teacher and what started as a hobby
became a passionate career in clay
Trained in he Lowveld of South Africa,
she opened her own studio and has
successfully exhibited, taught and
produced award winning stoneware as
well as earthenware functional pottery,
and became inspired by Italian majolica.
Piero joined Monica 13 years ago and
their pottery is a result of a successful
teamwork. Currently all pottery thrown
on a potters' wheel is by Monica, and
Piero hand builds the slabbed work.
Since all pottery is handcrafted and no
molds or stencils are used, there will be
slight variations in color, size, and
decorations, making every piece unique.


Abe Sloan Gainesville, FL. Wood
Sloan says, I have always been impressed with the beauty of natural wooden objects. I find wood grain
patterns, color and texture to be innately beautiful and strive to create forms that cause people to pause
and observe that beauty. The whole process has drawn me in, challenged my imagination, gotten under
my skin, and will not let go." Sloan retired from a 35-year teaching career and decided to try his hand at
wood turning. With the exception of two weeks of formal turning instruction at the Arrowmount School
of Arts and Crafts in Gatlingburg, TN., he is largely self-taught. He especially enjoys taking wood headed
for the burn piles or landfills and changing it into something that will be valued.

Michael & Brian Jasinsli Gainesville, FL. Photography
S Michael Jasinski grew up in Florida and spent his youth surfing, boating and exploring islands
Sand beaches close to where he lived. His photography career path began in high school and
...-. provided him with his foundation of the medium and opened his eyes to a world of
possibilities behind the lens. While earning his BS in Accounting, he gave his camera to his
younger brother Brian who enrolled in the same photography class which inspired Michael.
.^... : For many years they pursued their careers in business and in 1999 began exploring
photography again. The themes of Michael's images are influenced by the passions of his
youth and it is his goal to capture he beauty and essence of Florida and share it with those

describes as his extended family across the country



Jane Anxman-Hyner West Palm Beach, FL. Photography ..
Waterpix was founded in 2003 by Florida native, Axman-Hyner, as a way to convey the
beauty of both underwater and topside nature photography Axman-Hyner's interest in the
sea life she encountered while diving allowed her to rekindle an interest in photography
inspired by her father as a child. Using the camera she was now able to capture a sliver of
each experience to bring back and share with others. It is Axman's belief that by instilling
an appreciation of the beauty of these natural wonders within people, it also builds a desire
to save them from the ongoing destruction of our environment occurring every day. Jane's
photography does not end with the ocean, but continues with other bodies of water from
the ponds and marshes to mangrove lined estuaries, each unique environment explored is
inherently tied to the water upon which all life is dependent.








ALACHuAcouNToYTDAY Art Festival at Thornebrook OCTOBER 6 &7,00 11



Jane Billman Gainesville, FL. Mixed Media
Billmans' medium is printmaking monotype and she combines her knowledge of wood engraving with LP
papermaking and wood block printing to produce the artwork she does today. She then finishes with a
monotype layer in watercolors, pastels, acrylics or oils. Each layer lends a unique texture with a dynamic
range of color, tone and atmosphere never before possible from just one media. Her work is created with
only the highest quality of archival materials. Her specialty is the ability to combine traditional artist
media with the scientific and technological innovations of the present to make the millennium a
wonderful and exciting time to create art.


Don Shaw High Springs, FL.
Sculpture
S- Born in Ft. Lauderdale years before the mouse
Arrived and brought with it a crush of humanity,
S Shaw spent most of his days experiencing something near water and the many creatures that
.. lived in and around it. Years later after obtaining an MFA in sculpture and drawing, crashing
through the many art forms of the seventies and spending several years teaching art at the
university level in Louisiana, he realized that his true interest still remained with the creatures
that inhabited his childhood. Today he teaches in the areas of digital automation and graphics,
but working metal is his true passion. "I would prefer the viewer not perceive my work as an
object, but simply a moment in time. Emotions and thoughts of the creatures hopefully come
through, sometimes comical and at times more serious than imagined. The real excitement for
me comes when the copper is hammered and welded into a shape that suddenly collides with my
original drawings and a personality steps out of the piece."





Robert Kamarowski Gainesville, FL. Photography
Photographic prints should invite interpretation, whether abstract or realistic, black & white or
color each print should allow the observer to feel an emotion, a sensibility that is instinctive and
personal and we should be moved to see more than what is before our eyes. Kamarowski takes
pictures of what interests him shapes, textures, angles, light, shadow...when some (or occasionally,
all) of these catch his eye and emotions, that is when he stops and takes a picture; the amount of
serendipity in this process can be humbling. Shots he is certain will look quite good, often turn out
to be ordinary and shots that are taken in a haphazard, oh-what-the-heck sort of way can turn out .. S
to be gems. It is this unknown element that keeps photography exciting for him. Kamarowski
began taking pictures when he was a boy with a I(odak Brownie and currently uses large and
medium format cameras. The negatives are scanned and printed using archival pigment inks.

.... 'i: ]Bob Gould Gainesville, FL. Jewelry
,. Gould says jewelry must be in his genes his great-grandpa Nathan Rodman was a goldsmith
y, in Russia who later worked for Tiffany and Co. in New York. Grandma Annette was a
jewelry salesperson all her life, and great-uncle Harry, now 98 years old, founded a gold and
.. silver refining business after he developed an efficient method of extracting the precious
-"- i: .metals from jewelers' floor sweepings. While in school studying Physical Therapy, Gould
i went to work part time doing office work for a local manufacturing jeweler and when he
needed help making the jewelry, Gould picked up the tools and never looked back. Gould
works with sterling silver, copper and its alloys and 18K gold, all in sheet and wire form
fabricating rings, pendants, bangles, cuff bracelets, and his favorite handmade chains.
Gould prefers clean, simple designs so he works the surface and oxidizes the piece to bring
out the beauty of the metal itself. He does most of the forming and texturing with hammers,
often one of his rusted ones on a rusted anvil.

We have been adorning our space with art since man
first drew, on his ca\e walls. Art festivals are wonderful
\enues for acquiring original art adding to one's
collection or for adorning our li ing and work spaces.
But. most importantly. \we acquire art to enrich our
lies.
We know what we like when we see it. but being
informed about art basics makes the assessment and
selection process of the art \ou purchase easier and
more enjoo able.
Composition gives the iewer organization within a
.painting Look for the focal point positioned off-center
both verticallN and horizontally. -lorizons are situated
at one-third or r\\o thirds creating more interesting
perspective for the \ iewer.
Inter-connecting and inter-locking lines with
patterns and shapes keeps the e e continually mo\ ing.
exploring and discovering intriguing details of a
painting
Color valuess create depth and distance in a painting
b\ using the \r'e darkest to the %ern lightest tones in an
approximate ten-step scale. Dark colors recede and light
colors ad% ance.
Perspective in landscape paintings graphically
represents the effects of distance on size. form and
color.
Oil painting is a medium that endures the ages.
Collectors \alue and appreciate the old masters to the
workss of contemporary painters. Oil paint is applied to
a primed canvas by either brush or palene knife. Each
application technique achieves a different result.

Water based acr lies are a relati ely recent painting
substance, becoming available to the fine art world in
the early 1950s. Fast drying acrylic paint can be used
straight from the tube as an opaque or diluted with
water for desired effect
Watercolor is simply pushing color around with
water. The amount of water used determines the
transparency or opaqueness of the applied paint.
Transparent watercolor can be layered for a glazed
effect, applied hard edged or \et-into-\wet for flowing
"bleeding" colorful techniques \ith soft edges
Abstract and non-objecti\e art can be bold in
color and shape. Non-objective art may offer pleasing
arrangements of colors %\ without definiti e shares.
The painter's responsibility is to create art whether
by simple application of paint or by manipulation.
Watercolor and acrylics adapt well to manipulation
using substances or techniques for effect such as salt.
alcohol, scraping, masking, adding mixed objects to

Regardless of the medium, it is ho,\ the artist
interprets the subject and applies the paint that gives the
art emotional appeal. The result of an artist's work
should be a visual symphony giving pleasure and
satisfaction to those view ing the painting.
