If there ever was a time
selected for festivals, this
weekend must have been it.
From the moon to the hogs
and.everything in between, a
festival of every kind exists.
Step into downtown High
Springs where the annual Fall
Festival gets underway
Saturday at 10 a.m.
Featuring food, music, apple
bobbing, barbeque, candle
making andtoo much more to
list, the High Springs Fall

the youngest and oldest.

;ents the


city and Watson, the state agency said
Watson's status as a sworn officer should
have ended on June 5, 2002, when Watson
was appointed as the City Manager. Along
with his appointment as manager, city
commissioners gave Watson the title of
Police Commissioner.
The FDLE's chief concern appears to
stem from the fact that the City of Alachua
.never filed form CJSTC 61, a separation
form which gives reasons why Watson is no


longer a police 'officer. The form filed
recently by Alachua Police Chief Robert
Jernigan states that Watson is leaving his
role of police officer because he had been
appointed as the city manager.
Watson's status as a police officer was
retroactively terminated effective June
2002.
"If we had known that we needed to fill
out and file that form back in 2002, we

Blindfolded scouts from Alachua's Troop and Pack 88 are learning how difficult life would be as
a blind person during the annual White Cane Safety awareness campaign Saturday. The annual
event is sponsored by the Alachua County Council of the Blind.


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
Try pouring a glass of water, counting
money or opening a door. It's all easy enough
unless you're blind, or as many people learned
Saturday, blindfolded.
And each October in the city of Alachua, the
Alachua County Council of the Blind (ACCB)
conducts a white cane safety awareness
campaign to give the generalpublic a glimpse at
life as a blind person.
The day has traditionally been kicked off
with sighted participants taking a two-block


walk along U.S. Highway 441 while
blindfolded. While rain kept participants from
taking the walk this year, other activities were
still held inside of the Alachua Lions Club.
For the past eight years, organizers of the
event, including ACCB President Spencer
Morton and former presidents Maxine Stallings
and Jack Varnon, and Alachua walk coordinator
Adam Boukari have led an ever-growing group
of area residents as they experience a momentary
world ofdarkness. The Alachua community has
answered the challenge issued by Varnon to

Forest Grove Christian.
Academy's pre-k through
third grade classes conducted
the First Annual Scarecrow-
making family project.
Students were instructed to
create a scarecrow as a
family project and bring the
finished scarecrow in to the
school to be put on display.
When the day came, the
youngsters were excited to
show off their creations. The
finished scarecrows were all
different, detailed and
absolutely adorable. The
scarecrow making family
project was such a success
that the school has decided to
make this an annual tradition.

popular event as not only rain, but
people as well, poured into the

a staple among area art events
annually.
Art on display included a wide
range of mediums and styles from
traditional paintings and
photography to newer digital art.
In addition to art that would suit
just about anyone's taste, there was
a wide selection food, colorful arts
and crafts for youngsters, and a
variety of crowd pleasing

Unity of the Spirit in the Bond of Peace


join us at these local events


In his Epistle to the Ephesians,
Saint Paul calls the Church at Ephesus
to the Christian life and to the one
hope. What is your idea of the
Christian life? What is it that the Lord
is calling us to?
Saint Paul tells the Ephesians to
lead a life worthy of the calling which


the Lord has extended to
them. This may not seem
too difficult to anyone who
thinks that life in the first
century did not have the
temptations of our 21st
century society. Let's look
at life in Ephesus around the
year 60 AD.
This was an important
city, as it was a capitol city
of the Roman Empire
hundreds of years before St.
Paul visited there. Half of
the people were Greek and
half Asiatic, and their
religion and superstitions
were a combination of East
and West. Diana or Artemis
was the main object of
worship. The town was


The Ven.
Leasure
All Saints
Church, i
A parish
Christian
Church


known for its theatres, baths, and
libraries. It was well established as a
political, commercial, and religious
center of the world.
When Saint Paul brought the
Gospel message to Ephesus, there was
a natural resistance to the message of
Jesus Christ. Paul's preaching
condemned the world, the flesh, and
false religion and he worked hard to
bring Christianity to this pagan city.
Acts chapter 20 describes Saint Paul as
remaining in Ephesus over two years
and he visited from house to house and
ceased not to warn every one of them
day and night with tears. The result
was that he turned the people to Christ
as their first love, but the temptations


of luxurious living and personal
agendas turned this first love into a
cold heart toward Christ.
Christian living in Ephesus during
Sthe first century was not much different
than 21st century Christian life in the
United States. The temptations of the
world are what they have always been
to Christians living in a
certain amount of
worldly security. We
should listen to the
warnings of Saint Paul
on this subject. He calls
upon the, people of
4;- Ephesus to consider the
work to which they have
been called, and to live
in a manner consistent
with this high calling.
The proper attitude is
John E. lowliness and meekness,
Long suffe ring,
s Anglican forbearance with one
Gainesville. another; striving to keep
of the the unity of the Spirit in
Episcopal the bond ofpeace.
What does lowliness,
meekness, long
suffering, forbearance, and unity have
to do with our calling? These are
requirements given to Christians living
at a time such as ours, worshipping in a
church much like our own. So, what
does it say to us?
The greatest problem confronting
the American church is an over-
inflated opinion of the individual
against the idea of a Church
community. We are not saved to live a
life turned inward, isolated from the
rest of the Body of Christ. Our primary
hope is that, by the Spirit of God, we
keep unity in the One Body of Christ.
We must be humble with one another,
patient, tolerant of the faults of others,
for the sake of the true calling which is


evident in the unity of the Body of
Christ. Those who have separated
from the apostolic and catholic
church-founding new churches under
an assumed authority-have become
examples of all that Saint Paul rejected.
What is the opposite of lowly?
Pride. What is the opposite of
meekness? It is authoritarianism.
What is the opposite of forbearance? It
is a spirit of division.
Such things result in discontented
people brought together against the
church that' was established by the
authority of Christ, people wanting to
establish a ministry built upon
personality rather than the unity of the
one Body, made up of all baptized
Christians, who by their rebirth, share
in all the spiritual gifts of God, which
belong to the Body and not to
individuals. When Christians leave the
unity of the Body, they establish
themselves as the possessors of the
gifts, the self-exalted rulers of a new
church, rejecting the peace which
comes through unity in the Spirit of
God. While they speak of unity, what
it amounts to is agreement with
separatists, rather than a return to the
catholicity and apostolicity granted by
Christ to the Church through the
Apostles.
Those of us called to the catholic
and apostolic church, must keep in
mind that our aim is to seek a greater
good than the happiness and blessing
on an individual. If we are to remain
faithful to God and fulfill our calling,
we must learn what it is to be lowly,
longsuffering, patient, forbearing, for
the sake of unity-unity is proof of our
baptism into the Body of Christ, proof
that we love the Church just as Christ
who gave Himself for the Church.

By DAN REID
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY- It isn't often that municipalities
give property to residents. But that is what
happened Monday evening as Newberry City
Commissioners approved an ordinance allowing
some property owners in Newberry to have
ownership rights to alleyways directly behind their
homes. The alleyways were previously owned by
the City of Newberry.
According to Newberry Mayor John Glanzer,


ELECTION:
Continued from page Al


Lois Forte were sworn in
Wednesday morning for another
term on the Newberry
S Commission. Both Lawson and
Forte ran unopposed two years
ago. Newberry Mayor John
Glanzer, who himself ran
Unopposed in 2006, believes the
reasons why incumbents face no
opposition is because residents are
happy with the job the
Commission is doing.
"We hope the reason for this is
that citizens are satisfied," said
Glanzer.
The mayor said this is the first
time he can remember that three
incumbent Commissioners faced
no opposition. He described both
Hoffman and Lawson as being
vocal members of the Commission
and always asking the tough
questions before making
decisions. He said Forte has been
an asset to the City Commission
S for many years along with
working closely with senior
citizens who live in Newberry.
Glanzer said he's encountered
r residents who sometimes say
there're not satisfied with the City
Commission's performance.
_ When he hears these complaints,

city utility employees will still have access to the
land as a utility easement. Glanzer said the
property where the alleyways are located is part of
a series of housing plats that were drawn in the
1950s.
When asked if there's a chance property values
will increase for homeowners, Glanzer said there's
always a chance property values will go up, but
warns if there is an increase it would be of nominal
value.


Ashby: Newberry has embraced change


he encourages those individuals to
consider running for City
Commission. Glanzer said the life
of a City Commissioner includes
attending many city meetings and
taking late night phone calls.
Newberry City Manager Keith
Ashby said he's had discussions
with city staff about the issue of
City Commissioners running
unopposed. He believes the
reason this year's incumbents ran
unopposed had to do with the
Commission's decision for three
years in a row to lower taxes along
with embracing the culture of
change surrounding Newberry.
About the fact that he'll be
working another two years with


Hoffman, Lawson, and Forte,
Ashby said, "I was pleased to see
them reelected or at least run
unopposed."
Ashby, who has worked for
several municipalities over the
years, said there is usually a high
amount of turnover in city
commissions because
Commission members often get
burned out due to the pressures
that come with the position.
Ashby looks at the unopposed
elections as a positive sign for
Newberry.
"I professionally believe this
city has embraced change and
reached a sense of compromise."

"walk a mile in my shoes"
through participation in the
annual white cane safety
awareness walk.
This past Saturday some
50 people, many with their eyes
blindfolded, learned what it was
like to live a day in the life of a
blind or visually impaired
person.
The "blind walk," as
Saturday's event has been
dubbed began eight years ago
as Boukari's Eagle Scout
project designed to create
awareness of the Florida White
Cane Law, Statute No.
316.1301. That law requires all
drivers to come to a complete
stop when approaching a blind
or visually impaired pedestrian
attempting to cross the street.
Over the course of the past
eight years, the Alachua County
Council of the Blind (ACCB)
teamed up with the Alachua
Lions Club, scouts and the
Alachua Police Department
(APD) to bring the message of


Q: Are there different types
of gum disease?
SA: Yes. Peridontal disease,
or gum disease, comes in
different forms. The common
types are the following:
Gingivitis is the mildest
form. It makes the gums swell,
bleed and turn red. It is
generally reversible with
professional care and good at-
home hygiene.
Chronic peridontitis is the
most frequently occurring
type. It causes inflammation in
the tissue that supports the
teeth. Pockets of infection
form and lead to bone loss and
tooth detachment.


safety to the public.
Helping out and
participating this year were cub
scouts from Alachua's Cub
Scout Pack 88 and Boy Scouts
from Troop 88.
Among area residents on
hand for the walk were city
officials Alachua Mayor Gib
Coerper, Alachua City Manager
Clovllis Watson, Jr. and City
Commissioners Jean
Calderwood, Orien Hills and
James Lewis. Hills has the
distinction of participating in
the event each year, from the
first step of the inaugural walk
in October 2000. Calderwood,
Watson and Coerper have also
participated in the walk for
several years.
APD assisted by
providing transportation to
visually impaired individuals
who could not find a means of
commuting to and from the
walk.
APD's Explorers unit
pitched in by grilling hotdogs


Aggressive periodontitis is
a more severe form. It leads to
rapid bone destruction and loss
of tooth attachment. Disease-
related peridontitis is a result
of a systemic problem. This is
gum disease that stems from
another disease, like diabetes.
Necrotizing periodontal
disease is an infection that
actually kills the gum tissue,
ligaments and bone. These
necrotizing lesions most
commonly occur in, but are
not limited to, people who
have a systemic disease like
HIV infection, or a systemic
condition like malnutrition.

and serving refreshments to the
participants during activities.
What sighted individuals
define as .routine activities
become challenges when
performed "in the dark."
Blindfolded participants soon
realized the daily challenges
faced by the blind when
performing common tasks such
as unlocking a door, getting the
time of day and counting
money. New to this year's list
of activities was use of an
audio-driven voting booth.
White Cane walks and
demonstrations help the public
become aware of the White
Cane Law and how to identify a
blind or visually impaired-
individual attempting to cross
the street. Varnon's hope is that
people, especially motorists,
who see an individual with a
white cane, with or without a
red tip, or a guide dog,
understand that according to
state law the driver must yield
and allow the pedestrians) to
cross the intersection.
Although rain miay have
kept a White Cane Walk from
happening, it didn't keep
participants from learning.what
a day in the life of a blind or
visually impaired person might
be, and to "see" through the
eyes of a blind person, if only
momentarily.

City needs to tighten
belt
It \Ias with great dismay
that I read an article in the
.-hchlii, TL.'n7 regarding the
County cutting funding to the
City of High Springs for the fire
department.
Iti is wrong that the Count
made this cut of approximately
11-12"... after the budget had
been made and the net\ fiscal
\ear is under wa\. -Ho\\ever. I
believe that thing that really\
alarmed me is that our
Commissioner, Jim Gabriel.
and City Manager Jim Drumm
believe that resorting to
assessing additional fees to our
citizens is the immediate
solution to this problem.
IUnfortunatelh. all of us
citizens ha\e also faced rising
fuel costs, increasing costs of
goods and services. as well as
sk rocketing ta\es and propec-rs
insurance rates. In our
personal lixes. we learn to cut
costs bi toing to the gas
stations with lower prices.
buy ing less \when %we shop and
evaluating w\hetheil \e really ,
need to but those "extras" from
\week to week \Ve also turn up
our thermostat or turn off our
a c and extra lighting to reduce
our light bills. xwe increase
deductibles on insurance
policies. \ne make fexter trips in
the car. etc.... There is no one
\we can go to and start assessing
userr Ices" to increase our
. re enue
I ha\c watched numerous
times \while cit\ vehicless fill up
at the most e\pensi\e gas
stalion in our fair city. On
Friday. I saw a fire truck getting
gas there and it was 5, cents
more per gallon that two other
gas stations located within a
few blocks. How many gallons
of gas does the city purchase
annually? Let's multiply that
number by 05 per gallon and
see what the\ could sa\e simply


b> using a different gas
supplier. Numerous residents
have complained about the
lights at the Cixic Center Park
that stay on all night. Could we
just close the park at 11 p m
and ask a police officer to drive
b\ and turn the lights off' Ho\x
much less would xxe pa\ if
those mega-w\att lights burned a
fe\\ hours less each night?
Nlanr \ears ago. I
worked d for a count, in Florida
and hard times hit and lay offs of
staff were imminent. Nh\
department volunteered to \\ ork
4 hours less a week so that \\e
would not ha\e to la\ off staff
I knox\ there are positions
within n the Citi of High Springs
that are less than busy right now
- perhaps an adjustment of
staff's hours would be a
consideration la\ be some of
our higher paid management
people would be willing to take
a temporary. 2-3'o cut to help
out our city in these difficult
times? Perhaps our
Commissioners would be
\ killing to reduce their
compensation by a percentage
to offset the budget shortfalls'
.As a resident and business
owner in High Springs. I do not
mind supporting the services I
receive from the Cin Ho\\e\er
in m\ business. I put out one
garbage can per week, and yet I
pay $22 75 per month for that
service and several times o\ei
the last feix months. I'\e had to
call Citn Hall because the
contractor forgets to pick up mI
garbage The\ \xill also not
pick up )ard waste from a
business, so I ha\e to load mN
clippings into a truck and haul
them to the dump 1 also pa\ a
minimum charge of $41.40 per
month for the privilege of
having 'sewer to my business
e\en though I onl\ use $5-6
dollars a month in water. Both
the garbage and sewer fees
\\ere raised in the last 2 years.
\\e all pa\ "user fees" and


ta.es Ifranchise fees) on our
phone hills, cable T\' and
po\ter bill-' which haxe
increased and these are re enue
that goes to the city. Our
Property ..lues ha\e been
increased '\hjch means more
tax revenue for the cits from
businesses and rental properties
\within the city limits. The
commission \wants us to
consider a $50 per \ear fee to
obtain "de\ elopment rights" for
more green space. When is it
going to end.'?
I personally am tired
of the Comnmissioneis and Cit\
Manager not workingg a little
harder to come up with
solutions for rising costs and
decreased revenues. Look to
yoursel\es gentlemen and why
don't you step up to the plate!
Do \hat the rest of us ha\e to
do Trim some fat go without
- cut our spending.

Watson said.
"This form shows that I am
not a sworn police officer," he
added.
The city manager said he
does, however, maintain his
police certification which won't
expire until 2009.
While FDLE officials
referenced the constitutional
concerns in their letter to Watson,.
they had. little to say when
pressed for more details of their
findings.


"This situation has been
handled and [Watson] has been
separated from his employment
as a police officer," FDLE
spokeswoman Kristen Perezluha
said.
As for the city manager
continuing to hold the title of
Police Commissioner, Perezluha
stated that FDLE has no
involvement in that.
But the recent developments
involving FDLE have done little
to clarify the ongoing dispute
over whether or not Watson is

All agree the law is clear that
holding two offices is
unconstitutional. What remains
up in the air will likely be

Charles Grapski filed a suit

Watson is in fact holding dual

contracts, have maintained that
the Florida constitution is not
being violated because Watson is
only being paid for the position of
city manager.
"As provided for under
Florida statutes, [Watson] has
always maintained his
certification because he has
always been subject to
reassignment as a police officer
under his contract with the City.
"Therefore, there is no
violation of any ethical rules or
the Florida constitution," Smith
wrote.
City of Alachua Attorney
Marian Rush said in an interview,
"At this time, Clovis Watson, Jr.
holds the roles of city manager.
and police commissioner and the
police commissioner role is an ex
officio title which is not a police
officer."


The recent FDLE
requirement that Watson be
separated from his position as a
police officer has been paraded
by some, including Grapski, as
proof that Watson has been
holding dual offices.
Aside from his contention that
he isn't holding dual offices,
Watson also argues that the intent
of police commissioner title was
to allow him to maintain his
special risk retirement under the
Florida Retirement System.
"My contract allows for me to
be reassigned to the role of police
officer should the commission
desire," the city manager said.
The continued special risk
retirement status was offered to
Watson as part of his city
manager compensation package.
"Every process and
discussion referencing my


contract and my role has been
conducted in public meetings.
"Many of the people who are
standing to criticize me and this
issue today are the .same people
who stood to praise or even vote
to appoint me in 2002," he said.
The Florida Division of
Retirement wrote over the
summer to say Watson was no
longer qualified for special risk
class with the determination to be
made retroactive to his 2002
appointment. But their position
seemed to change when city
officials objected.
"Once we have completed our
review of Mr. Watson's reported
salaries, we will make a final
determination and issue a Final
Agency Action letter," a Division
of Retirement official later wrote.

poor play and a lack of energy.
With the loss, the Raiders move
into the second seed for district

Panthers still looking for
win after tough loss to
Williston
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
n what has been a difficult season thus far,
Newberry High School first-year head
volleyball coach Michele Bisaccia said
her club showed some promise in last
Thursday's (Oct. 4) District 5-3A match
at Williston.
Although the Panthers were handed a 22-25,
25-22, 15-25, 18-25 loss by
the Red Devils, Bisaccia
said she was proud of her
team's performance.
"I was really proud of
how hard my girls fought,"
Bisaccia said."I saw a lot of
fight in them, it just seemed
like our motivation and our
desire to get to the last game Bisaccia
was there even though we,
were extremely tired. We upped ourselves to
another level."
Thursday night's loss to the Red Devils was
Newberry's 50th 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.
Newberry (0-14, 0-10), with just seven
players on its roster, had to battle against its lack
of depth during its last regular-season district
match. The Panthers were without Erin
Czerenda, who missed the match with a knee
injury, while Monique Williams,played with a

stated a disappointed Raider
head coach Michele Faulk. "In

Santa Fe was dominated in
the first game. After the
Raiders jumped outto an early
5-1 lead, the Broncos would,
later go on a 7-0 run to take an
11-9 upper hand. The two
teams would tie later in the first

be totally

starting to compare the strength

championship.
Almost like clockwork, those
individuals usually become too
impatient too fast and start
calling for an end to the BCS
system as we know it because of
how unfair it is.
Believe me, Mikey's been one
for years.
And yet, six weeks. through
this season, Mikey's noticed a
change.
We're not hearing the catcalls
and whining over the system this
time around.
But why?
Well, for starters, it's because
the circumstances of this season
(namely, a half-dozen upsets per
week) are not allowing anyone
to get a grip on who might be
getting ripped off by the
computers or the polls.
No one seems to be getting
slighted or unfairly placed ahead

Raiders rained out


SSanta Fe falls in
homecoming to
West Port
By ADAM BOUKARI
Today Sports Writer
ALACHUA When it rained
on the Santa Fe High School
football team's homecoming
last Friday night, it poured.
Aside from the on and off
drizzles from the looming rain
clouds, the West Port Wolf Pack
- a team that hadn't won a
game all season not only beat
the Raiders, but shut them out'
in dominating fashion, 27-0.
Santa Fe's inability to hold on
to the ball in the first half along
with a second half that offered


poor offensive execution and a
defense that was unable to stop
the Wolf Pack, helped the
visitors .to '
their first
victory of the
season.
"A lot of
things have
to happen in
order for us
Brooks
to go to the
playoffs," said first-year Santa
Fe head coach Bart Brooks.
"We're guaranteed 16 quarters
(four games left in the regular
season). There's still a lot to
play for. We've got to play
these four games to the fullest."
The Raiders had six total
turnovers for the game, four of


which occurred in the first half,
forcing the Santa Fe defense on
the field for most of the contest.
If it seemed like the Wolf Pack
had the ball on offense all night,
that's because they did. Santa
Fe (2-4, 0-2) had 14:02 total
time of possession, while the
visitors more than doubled that
with 33:58.
The home team had nine total
offensive possessions while
West Port (1-5, 1-1) had 12.
The Raiders tallied 40 plays
from scrimmage (20 passing
and 20 rushing) and the Wolf
Pack totaled 65 plays on
offense (15 passing and 50
rushing).

DAROZA from page B1

And, to a certain point, Mikey
still is, but just not in such a way
that we totally scrap the bowl
system that is so richly the
passion and heart of college
football.
The older I get, the more I
believe that a simple conversion
to an eight, sixteen or 32-team
playoff would ruin the game
many of us yearn for all winter,
spring and summer.
Mikey's suggestion, as if
anyone is listening, is still that
the key is in the polls.
Yes, there should be an
elimination or "tournament" of
sorts, like having the best eight
teams playoff for the title, but
only after the poll situation is
fixed first.
And, it starts with the AP and
USA Today (coaches) polls
being trashed immediately.
Too many times bad teams
start too high and good teams
start too low.
That is the problem college
football is facing this season
more than any other in recent
history.
Halfway through the season,
we suddenly have 10 out the top
25 in the AP Poll, including
seven out of the top 15 (Boston
College, South Florida, South
Carolina, Oregon, Missouri,


Arizona State and Cincinnati)
that weren't even ranked in the
preseason and 11 out of the top
25 in the USA Today Poll.
Conversely, 10 out of the top
25 teams in the preseason AP
Poll (including three of the top
15) aren't even ranked now.
It's a mess.
Plus, how can anyone accept
the fact that one team (South
Carolina) is ranked as high as
seventh in one poll (AP), and as
low as 12th in the other (USA
Today)?
Or, how Florida can fall as
many spots after getting beat at
home by an unranked opponent
as they did when they lost on the
road to the No.1 team (LSU)
after leading all but 1:09 of the
game?
Or, how USC can only drop
seven spots (to No.7) after losing
at home to a team (Stanford) that
was a 41-point underdog and had
only won 16 games in the last
five years, while Wisconsin
dropped a whoppingl5 spots (to
No. 19) after losing on the road
to a 5-1 team (Illinois)?
Or, how in the world Georgia
can still be ranked ahead of
Tennessee in the AP Poll this
week after getting hammered by
the Volunteers -this past
Saturday?
Fellow college football fans,
it's time for a change, but that


change must start with how the
polls are constructed, otherwise
a playoff system will only be
more convoluted because the
wrong eight, 16 or 32 teams
could still be playing off.
The solution?

Only one "human poll"
(consisting of 100, non-biased,
pure college football junkies
who were required to watch at
least the highlights of all
Division I-A games each week)
and only one "computer poll"
(factoring only the strengths of
schedules) would be used.
Neither poll would be released
until six weeks into the season to
prevent bad teams from starting
too high and good teams from
starting too low.

Each of the remaining "big-
six" conferences that don't have
one (Big East, Big-Ten and
PAC-10) would be required to
play a conference championship
game like the ACC, SEC and
Big-12 do now.

The conference champions
from the "big-six" and two
wildcard teams would be seeded
according to their highest
combined position in the
"human" poll and "computer"
poll. The rest of the "bowl-
eligible" teams would finish in


their respective second and
third-tier bowls.

Then, a new "BCS Elite 8"
would include the Fiesta (1 vs.
8), Sugar (2 vs. 7), Rose (3 vs. 6)
and Orange (4 vs. 5) bowls
hostihg/rotating the opening
round each season, and one of
the four would host/rotate the
(two remaining games) each
year in the BCS Final Four.

It's good to be King!
Mike must give props to
someone who can record a
quarterback sack, make several,
hard-hitting tackles, help block a
field goal attempt and win a
Homecoming King contest all in
the same night.
And that someone is Santa Fe
High's Chris Dixon.
While, most of his opponents
(in the Homecoming Court, that
is) were donning freshly pressed
tuxedos and smelling good,
Dixon marched from midfield -
pretty girl on his arm in his
sweaty, smelly, red No.2
uniform...
Didn't matter, though.
Apparently, Dixon's
personality, sense of humor and
(judging by the flock of ladies
around him after each game)
overall dashing good looks -
even covered with mud and wet
grass were enough to get him


voted King.
Mikey's not so sure Dixon
wouldn't have rather won the
game he had to finish playing in
the second half, though.

who's not

Hot
Fourth-down conversions

occurred within the first minute
of the ball game after a
completed pass and fumble
over to the Wolf Pack put the
visitors on offense. The West
Port offense was unable to
spark anything on the
possession and could not covert
on a fourth-and-12.
That's when Raider senior
tailback Deonte Merricks
bolted for 56 yards into the
Wolf Pack red zone. Once
again, a turnover on the next
play gave the ball back to West
Port. The Raiders turned the
ball over three times in the first
six minutes of the game, but
some how left the first quarter
unscathed with the score 0-0.
But, a fumble on the opening
play of the second quarter put
the West Port offense in
business at its own 35 yard line.
Eleven plays, four first downs
and 4:52 later, the visitors drew
first blood on a 19-yard
touchdown pass play. The Wolf
Pack would clinch a 7-0
advantage entering halftime.
"The halftime message was
just like last week because we
were down by seven to Union
County, at half," recalled
Brooks. "We came into the
weight room and talked to them
and it was a totally different
atmosphere. They were
dejected with their heads
down."
Trailing by just a touchdown
after turning the ball over four
times had to be a positive for
the Raiders. However, two
early turnovers in the second
half gave the home team the
ball for just 2:41 in the third
session. The Raiders recorded
only two first downs for the
entire second half.
Meanwhile, the Wolf Pack
was rolling as they took their
opening drive down to the
Raider 5 yard line before a
penalty forced West Port to
settle for a field goal. After
converting on the 37-yard
attempt, West Port carried a 10-

Raider running back Deonte Merricks tries to shake a tackle
last Friday night against West Port.


Port interception gave the Wolf
Pack the ball in Raider territory.
The visitors drove 32 yards in
2:57 capped by a five-yard
touchdown run for the 17-0
upper hand.
The Raiders tried to get
something going on its ensuing
possession and tried to convert
on a fourth-and-six on a fake
punt. But a direct snap to
quarterback Frank Snead got
the Raiders three yards and
turned the ball back over to
West Port.
The Wolf Pack with prime
field position at the Raider 37
yard line scored four plays
later on a fourth-and-two with a
30-yard touchdown run. The
visitors would tack on another
field goal late in the game for
the final shutout margin.
The Raiders were
outperformed on offense with
112 rushing yards on 20 carries
and 8-of-20 through the air for
89 yards as West Port recorded

The Raiders play this Friday
night at home against
Suwannee with a 7:30 p.m.
kickoff time. The two teams
played one half of varsity
football in the spring which
showed the Bulldogs take a 7-0
win.
"When I look at the film of
Suwannee, it's almost the.same
team as in the spring," said
Brooks. "There's not that much
of a change. We have a lot of
difference on our team.
"They (Suwannee) always
play physical and play hard.
We play at home and we need to
come back from a loss. We
need to come out and execute
our game play and don't turn
the ball over. Suwannee is a
tough opponent and we need to
come ready to play bottom
line.'

bruised hand. But despite not
having the ability to make any
substitutions during the match,
Newberry hung in there with
Williston.
After dropping the first game
by three points, the Panthers
responded and scratched out a
three-point win in the second
game. But in the third game,
Newberry caught a bad break.
With the Panthers trailing 16-14,
they then had two points
deducted from their score due to
serving out of rotation,
according to Bisaccia. The coach
said her team did not serve out of
rotation adding that her club was
mistakenly penalized.
"That was a huge momentum
crush," said Bisaccia, whose
team was outscored 9-3 the rest
of the way in the third game
before dropping the fourth and
eventual final game of the
match.
Chelsea Hall led Newbery
with six service points, three
digs and 10 assists, while
Lavarsha Nattiel added six kills
in the loss. Kaylee Parsons, a
recent call up from the junior
varsity team, chipped in five
digs for the Panthers.


Bisaccia also said that her
squad's communication has
improved and added that
Williams has been playing at a
whole different level than at the
beginning of the season.
"She (Williams) is just all over
the place, she hustles and had
some great kills and great digs,"
Bisaccia said. "All of my girls
have stepped it up."
After not playing a match this
past week, the Panthers return to
action Monday night as they host
Trenton in the regular-season
finale at 7 p.m. The District 5-
3A tournament hosted by P.K.
Yonge is scheduled to start on

With just one regular-season

Panthers are running out of
chances to prevent their second-
straight winless season.
"I keep reminding them it's
not where we started it's where
we finish," said Bisaccia, who is
also Newberry's softball coach.
"We have one more match and
we are going to do our best at

pulled the visitors to within two, 18-16.
Middleburg closed out the first game with a 7-
0 run to take the nine-point win and the early 1-0
lead in the match. The Raiders totaled just four
kills in the first game.
The second game featured a much closer match
'between the two district foes with six ties. The
Raiders fell behind late in the second game, 24-
18 and it appeared the home team had the win
wrapped up. However, the Raiders, behind the
serving of junior Ashley Rosenboom, strung
together six straight points to tie the match 24-24.
Fellow Raider Leah Leventhal had two kills and
a block during the game-tying stint.
The Broncos won the next two, well-played
points to win the second game by two points.

and shut them out."


The Panthers defense forced two
turnovers (interceptions by Antonio
and Ryan Brown) and put the
clamps on the Chiefland offense,
which managed just 126 yards of
total offense on the night Newberry
has allowed just 28 points through
six games this season, which is an
average of 4.6 points per contest.
Offensively, quarterback Guy
Brown was just 2-for-5 passing for
.46 yards and an interception. Both of
his passes were caught by Matt
Robinson, including a highlight grab
the senior made while on the ground
after slipping on the damp field. The
Panthers finished the evening
rushing for 373 yards on 47
attempts. Phillip Wamer was 3-for-4
on extra point attempts and three of
his kickoffs landed in the end zone
for touchbacks.
For the Indians, Galpin was 5-for-
15 passing for 33 yards with apair of
interceptions. Joey Harris had one
catch for 16 yards while Travis
Donald had two grabs for 16 yards
in the loss. Chiefland managed just
93 rushing yards on the night.
"It's exciting to see these guys
play with so much heart and so
much intensity," said Keeler, who is
in his third year as Newberry's
coach.
After two-straight road games,
Newbeny returns home to face
Dunnellon for its Homecoming


close second game. "We don't have that
consistent play and that killer instinct. We've got
to refuse to lose and have the attitude you will not
beat me tonight. I've seen it in them before but
they've got to draw it out."
The final game was much like the first with the
Broncos jumping out to a 15-9 lead. The Raiders
closed to within four points on two occasions, but
were unable to get any closer as the home team
pulled away for the win.
"This is the way we're going to approach it, if
we're going to lose to them let's do it right now,"
said Faulk. "We're going to move forward, get
ready and prepare for them when we see them in
districts. We don't like to lose, it hurts."
Santa Fe played Buchholz on Wednesday night
at home, however, the results from that game
were not available as of press time. Santa Fe will
next play Ocala Trinity Catholic at home on
Monday night with a 6 p.m. start time. Faulk
says her team is still trying to fill the leadership
role on the team.
"We have to have a spark plug step up," said
Faulk. "This team right now is searching for a
leader. I'm not sure who it's going to be, byt with
the challenges put forth they need to individually
find out what it takes to spark this team back.

game on Friday at 7:30 p.m. The
Tigers were 7-3 last fall and
currently own a 4-2 record this
season. Dunnellon is coming off a
27-0 win at Williston last Friday.
"On film this looks like the best
team we will have played this
season," Keeler said. "They've got
good size and pretty good speed.
They are good if not better than
anyone we have played this season."


The Tigers also feature star
linebacker Lerentee McCray, a
University of Miami commitment
Newberry and Dunnellon last
played each other during the 2002
season with the Tigers winning that
last matchup 49-6.
"Obviously the kid (McCray) is a
good player, we are going to have to
account for him. We can't leave him
unblocked anywhere on the field, he


is an extremely fast player and has A
nose for the ball," said Keeler, who
added that McCray also sees time at
tailback for the Tigers. "We always
look to play against a Division-I
player. It gets them (the team) fired
up for a challenge to really standout
against a Division-I player."

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY WEEKEND OF FESTIVALS OCTOBER 13 & 14, 2007


High Springs


- The center for water


sports and wonderful shops


By CONSTANCE L. HEUSS
Special to Alachua County Today
High Springs Voted the "Best Antiquing Town"
in 1997, High Springs in north Florida (about 20
miles northwest of Gainesville) is an historic rail-
road town where tur-of-the-century buildings line
the main street.
The well-traveled footpath along the High


Springs shopping corridor lulls you into a blissful
mindset and shoppers state of euphoria.
Shopkeepers greet you with a warm, friendly
smile, pleasant conversation and a wonderful spirit
of community. You may even decide to call High
Springs 'home' once you catch the charm. Whether
its show quality antiques or a warm, love-worn rock-
er you seek, you will find the perfect treasure from
the many unique shops along the way.
For an up-close and hands on experience you
can browse through booth after booth of antiques at
the Main Street Antique Mall. Several shops are
located in historic homes, which show off the
owner's wares to their best advantage. You can
enjoy genuine southern hospitality when you visit
Wisteria Cottage, Heart Strings, Enchanted
Memories or Railroad Antiques. Be sure to take
time for a little eye candy at the famous High
Springs Gallery. When you drop in ask about the
$100,000 worth of hand blown glass Christmas
ornaments that adorned last year's huge blue spruce
tree. You may even get a look at a snapshot or two
of the magnificent tree that graces the window dur-
ing the holiday season. Be sure to plan a visit to see
this year's work of art.
Just across the street you will find an icon of
yesteryear. The building nestled into a corer pock-
et depicts a well-preserved architectural style rarely
seen today. You can almost see the ghosts of era
long gone but not forgotten. While it has served as
Sa gas station, repair shop and many others through
the years, today it is home to Phillips Realty. Drop
in, find out about owning a piece of heaven or at
the very least a place in the country. Around the
comer there is a real jewel of a shop where you will
find Regina 's Fine Jewelry, where you may choose
an exquisite one-of-a-kind creation for you or
choose from the well-stocked cases of beautiful


gold, silver and platinum. Whether it's for you, or a
memory waiting to be made, a gift of gold will make
a lasting impression.
You can browse through shops with vintage
clothing, books, silverware, crystal, china, and
more. You may discover keepsakes that will carry
you back to memories of hidden treasures once
tucked away in the lofty comers of a turn of the cen-
tury home. You can stop in a florist and send a bou-
quet, gift basket or balloons to someone as an invita-
tion to join you in this charming and whimsical little
town. Who knows, you may decide to call this place
home soon.
Take a few steps south on Main Street and enjoy
a stroll through a country hardware store like none
you have ever browsed. While you are there ask
Mrs. Sheffield what is showing at the Priest Theater.
She and her family own Florida's oldest operating
theater. The theater is open on weekends and
Monday nights for well below average ticket prices.
You can feel the history as you walk down the won-
derfully preserved isles and select a seat like the
ones your great grandparents may have 'courted' in.
Unique and truly a gem of the community, the Priest
is a must see.

Continuing along Main Street you will find the High
Springs Bicycle Shop, and what a shop it is. You
may think Opie Taylor could pop in at any moment.
Owner and Commissioner Jim Gabriel offers a life-
time warranty on his wares. Yes, you read it right.
His philosophy is a throwback to a time when such a
guarantee was reserved and used by the big guns.
But here you will find a fit for any budget and he
will have you on two wheels in a jiffy. So get ready
for a ride to remember.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY WEEKEND OF FESTIVALS OCTOBER 13 & 14, 2007


Alachua


- Florida's hot spot


By CONSTANCE L. HEUSS
Special to Alachua County Today
Alachua From notoriety in the Wall Street
Journal to local news on-line, this little city has it
going on. The once referred to "bedroom" com-
munity just outside Gainesville, Florida has moved
up the ladder as far as little towns go. The develop-
ment within and around the city has generated high-
tech, high touch, high demand and cutting edge
attention from a plethora of Fortune 500 lookers.
From corer to corer, this town has something
for everyone. Alachua has a population of roughly
6800 people, a diverse economic structure and a
picturesque Main Street straight out of the 50's.
Small family owned shops are nestled along the
serpentine street that is adorned with ever changing
foliage of the Bradford Pear tree. Store fronts shine
with pride, windows are filled with suggestions of
garden grandeur, healthy concoctions, and a candy
store that offers the taste of yesteryear. You can
enjoy the famous Monster Burger from Conestogas
or stroll down the street to P'diddles caf6 drenched
in sunshine yellow walls, friendly smiling faces
serving fresh baked muffins with your favorite
gourmet coffee to get a morning started and catch


up on all the happenings around town. You may
even see a feathered friend. A little further down
the street is an Alachua icon. An old family home is
now masterfully restored to the grand elegance of
its glorious youth.
Over one block from Main Street is a newer
development anchored by the small town Post
Office where greeting customers by first name is
common, inquiring about a neighbor, their dog or
cat and even handing out a recipe or friendly advice
is an accepted and cherished part of the daily rou-
tine for the town folk. The development is home to
Hitchcock's Market which has roots as long as the
street bearing its founder's name of Bob Hitchcock.
The development is new, but the look and feel is
purely Alachua. Much care has been given to the
design element of having the old style brick store
front look for all new occupants of the "Alachua
Towne Centre". While many cities worry about the
development of a shopping center detracting from a
quaint downtown, the developers of this hot spot
have incorporated all of the charm and gone the
extra mile to include a strolling pathway that takes
you through a small city park under the canopy of
grand daddy oaks.


Just a little further west along the highway 441
corridor is a new development that has provided
over 400 jobs to the community. The development
pocket is surrounded by rolling hills, horse farms,
and easy access to Interstate 75. With 1700 acres
along the borders of major highway, railway and
nearby airway access, this hot spot will reach far
into the future of Alachua and adjoining communi-
ties.
Back to the east of the town's center is Progress
Corporate Park, home to several high tech research
and manufacturing firms that have added hundreds
of jobs and brought world recognition to this hot
spot. Some twenty five, and growing number, Bio
technology, genetic research, agricultural and envi-
ronmental engineering firms call this corer of
Alachua home. This environment rivals the most
modem of business parks in design, technology,
and location. Residents enjoy tropical landscaping,
manicured gardens and the lush green space of
adjoining San Falasco State Park. Just across the
way is a State office building that has all manner of
stateliness in every detail. From the meticulous
angular design to the crisp flag waving in the ever

HIGH SPRINGS:
Continued from page 2


If you have decided that this place would fit your
lifestyle or that you could fit into a style of life here,
never fear, whether you are a newly wed, looking to
retire, open a business, or acquire an established
trade location, you will find help on every comer.
From City Hall to the local state representative's
office, everything you may need is within a 5-
minute walk or 20-minute drive. High Springs is
only 7 miles from 1-75, so a hop on the expressway
can take you to the big city of Gainesville at lighten-
ing speed. There you will find the University of
Florida with about 40,000 students,
High Springs is home to a variety of eateries. If
you fancy a light and healthy sandwich shop or
gourmet dining you will find it in here. Soon to be
located at the corer of Main Street and First
Avenue will be High Springs Front Yard BBQ, with
a recipe for sauce that has been passed down for
generations. And opening in early 2008 will be the
Great Outdoors Cafe which is undergoing renova-
tions. A couple of doors down is an old-fashioned
drug store, lunch counter, with subs and more. Here,
you can get one of the finest hand-squeezed lemon
or limeade thirst quenchers to be found. Just around
the corer and down the street, housed in the old
railroad museum is the Station Bakery; a real treat
awaits newcomers and residents. In addition to a full
selection of sandwiches you can satisfy your sweet
tooth from a showcase of pastries, ice cream or
enjoy a slice from one of Miss Laura's exquisitely
decorated cakes. If you want
to relive the 50's then
SFloyd's is the place for you.
Located along highway 441
you can experience a true
f ~ rock 'n roll diner atmos-
phere. At the door you will
be greeted by a life sized
Elvis mannequin at the juke-
box. But don't think ham-
burgers, fries and shakes are
the only choices at this diner.
The menu has a full array of
gourmet meals that include,


-~-~-
"~'-"~ '

~if~ji~


steak, pasta and seafood.
If you are looking for that wet, wild, old Florida
experience, then you will find it here too. Whether
you want a lazy float down one of the pristine rivers
or yearn for cave diving exploration to see the world
famous first magnitude springs down under, you are
only a few minutes drive away once you arrive in
High Springs. When you visit the areas parks,
springs and camps you will be surrounded by nature
the way early settlers found it, complete with wild-
life under a canopy of live oaks, palm trees, sweet
jasmine and Florida Gator grandeur.
Now, you won't be able to see and do everything
in just one day, so you will want to hold up for a
good night's rest. And as well planned luck would
have it, you are in the right place. High Springs has
some of the most unique accommodations you have
ever experienced. A stay at a turn of the century bed
and breakfast will finish out your day in style. The
Grady House B & B is just a stone's throw away
from the heart of downtown. Be sure to ask them
about the resident ghost and "Skeet." The stories are
just a small part of what you will take home with
you. You will get a scrumptious breakfast and the
recipe for it if you like.
If you want to experience a taste of life along the
'route' then mosey on out to Highway 441 and see
for yourself what a Florida Motel really is. The High
Springs Country Inn and the Cadillac Motel will
make you think you have entered a time warp. These
history honed rest places will take you back to the
time when a stop over was as anticipated as the des-
tination.
If you want a stay in a themed, more on the exot-
ic nature side of sleep, then head south on Main
Street. You will find the Rustic Inn about 2 miles out
of town. This charming ranch style bed and break-
fast has a d6cor for the animal lover, the ocean
enthusiast or the cowboy. You will truly get a taste
of the country life during your stay.
Come visit Historic High Springs and enjoy
nature, shopping, dining and friendly faces, we have
it all.

present Florida sunshine, this addition to the 441 corridor family of businesses
is an enhancement of the area and a welcomed neighbor.
Through the woods and around a bend or two you will find lazy fields and
wild flowers decorating the panoramic setting of one of Alachua's jewels.
Amidst the campus-like layout of buildings that dot the landscape, an air of
serenity lulls you to the home of Web MD. The company develops, markets,
implements and supports physician practice management software systems,
which addresses the financial, administrative, clinical and practice manage-
ment needs of healthcare providers.
All along the 441 business trail you will find unique business endeavors
that have come to call Alachua, Florida home. Sabine, Inc. manufactures
world-famous professional audio equipment and musical instrument acces-
sories is located just off 441 in a 45,000 square foot, state of the art manufac-
turing facility. Across the road is J.A. Webster, supplier of veterinary products
across the United States. Southern Precast Concrete Manufacturers also call
this part of the country home as well.
Don't think that Alachua is just business and no fun. About seven miles
outside the City proper is a playground for the golfer, tennis buff, and swim-
mer. Turkey Creek Golf and Country Club is a hot spot with a cool choice of
fun for the family. This gated community offers Country Club atmosphere
with an open arms welcome to guests that want to enjoy a Sunday brunch or
18 holes of first-class golf.
Within minutes of Alachua you will find the world's largest fresh water nat-
ural springs. Poe Springs, Blue Springs, and Ginnie Springs are the renowned
cave diving mecca. The pure crystal clear water stays at a tingling 72 degrees
all year. Whether you are escaping a sultry 100 degree Florida heat wave or
basking in the warm February sunshine and taunting neighbors you left behind
in the snow, you will have no doubt about the hot spot here. A visit to our cor-
ner of paradise will engulf you in tropical sounds, smells and a taste of Florida
that will linger with you a lifetime.
That brings us to the place you may consider putting down roots and
becoming part of the colorful fabric of this community. Alachua has some of
the most scenic country roads you will ever drive. They are draped with
Spanish moss-laden tendrils that sway in the gentle Florida breeze as you wind
your way from settlement to settlement. Alachua has some of the most gor-
geous neighborhood developments you could imagine. Dramatic entranceways
beckon you to a safe homestead that has the Florida of today incorporated with
all the beauty of its rich past and the glisten of this new millennium. A drive
through any of the ranchette style farm sites will give you a perspective of bal-
ance and harmony with the natural beauty of each unique setting. If you are
more inclined to village style living, Alachua has that too with best of both


worlds right in the heart of downtown. Single-family home sites within a
block of town. If you fancy no drive time you have found your place in the
world. Alachua Towne Centre has combined store front retail with living quar-
ters above for the look and feel of a century past, just packaged with all the
modern conveniences and amenities you could ever desire.
Alachua calls from its past, prepares for its future and prides itself on some
of the most outstanding scenery, business and people you will ever find.
Alachua is unique, hot and where you want to be.
