HIGH SPRINGS Nearly
two months after the Alachua
County Commission allowed a
couple to continue operating a
cat sanctuary near High
Springs, the City filed a
motion with the county in
hopes, of appealing the
Commission's decision.
According to High Springs
City Manager Jim Drumm, the


High Springs will receive $50,000 for
the city's police department to provide
emergency dispatch services for
Hawthorne's newly formed police
department. The contract is for one year
with the High Springs Police Department

Area fall festivals brought thousands of
people to far flung locations throughout the
county this past weekend. The downtown areas'
of Alachua and High Springs were transformed
into bustling centers of activity, while the area
surrounding Hawthorne's recreation complex
was reminiscent of an old fashioned carnival
midway.
The High Springs Annual Fall Festival, held
on Saturday, was sponsored by the High Springs
Chamber of Commerce and the City of High


Springs. The event was a crowd pleaser with arts
and crafts, food, games, entertainment, the High
Springs-Farmer's Market and an old-style
pioneer village complete with old-time activities.
The festival, established four years ago, has
been growing steadily ever since. Centered
around the sinkhole near High Springs City Hall,
vendors displayed colorful items for buying or
simply browsing. Youngsters were out in force,
younger ones in strollers, as their parents
navigated between merchants' booths, while

By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS For 35 years, Janice and
Bobby Sheffield have offered friendly service at
their family owned hardware store, Sheffield's
Hardware in High Springs. But in addition, they
are responsible for entertaining hundreds each
week with the latest blockbuster motion picture
at the.Priest Theater.
The Sheffields are longtime residents of High
Springs, and were regular customers of a
hardware store on North Main Street before
buying the business in November 1972. Janice
said her husband always wanted to own a
hardware business and when the previous owner
of the store intended to sell, the couple was
ready to take advantage of the opportunity.

Trio brings diverse backgrounds to High Springs Commission race


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS-With the
High Springs City Commission
election less than a month away,
Alachua County Today recently
sat down with candidates Bill
Coughlin, Gene Levine, and
Dick Williams to discuss their
perspectives about issues facing
the community.


Coughlin

Bill Coughlin
Coughlin, who served as
City Commissioner and Mayor
of High Springs previously, said
he's seen a disconnect between
City Hall and citizens since he
left the Commission four years
ago. One of the reasons he's
running for City Commission
again is to bring back the level
of contact the city had with
citizens in previous years.
"I'd like to be the
Commissioner that reconnects
City Hall to the average
citizen," said Coughlin.
He'd like to see
Commissioners walk the streets
talking to residents and business
owners about concerns in the
community. In addition,
Coughlin wants to make the top
levels of government at City


Hall accessible to citizens at all
times.
"I believe that a
Commissioner's job is to ensure
City Hall listens to, protects,
and serves its citizens," said
Coughlin.
Coughlin, who works as
Director of the Hazardous
Materials Management
program at the University of
Florida, said he never lets
politics become a personal issue
with the people he deals with.
"When it comes to politics, it's
a philosophy, not a personal
issue," said Coughlin
As a former member of the
city's Plan and Code Boards,
along with being a member of
the Comprehensive Plan
Committee, Coughlin expresses
frustration with the City
Commission on their handling
of land development changes.
He feels Commissioners are not
moving forward with land
development changes in light of
recent development requests to
the Commission from
developers. Coughlin said High
Springs is still designing itself
as city and believes it's vital for
the city to continually plan for
the future.
As a Commissioner,
Coughlin said he'd bring
responsive government and
wise spending to the
Commission. He believes the
city has overspent in the last
few years, and sees government
as growing too big in High
Springs.
"We've just grown the
government too much," said
Coughlin.
If elected Coughlin plans to
take a conservative approach to
city spending. As


Commissioner he wants to
closely scrutinize city projects
and their costs.
Coughlin said
Commissioners should know
about the city's past, while
working on issues that will
affect High Springs today and
in the future.
"I believe a good
Commissioner is mindful of the
past, focused on the present, but
always looking to the future,"
said Coughlin.


Levine


Gene Levine
This year's City
Commission election isn't the
first time Levine's been in a
political campaign. While
living in Texas, Levine was a
City Commissioner for the
small town of Canton, outside
of Dallas. He said Canton is
similar to High Springs in
population, and that his
experience being a city official
in a small town, along with his
business acumen, is needed on
the City Commission.
"The expertise I possess is
what the community needs,"
said Levine.
Levine, who's enjoyed a
successful career in business,


consulting, and motivational
speaking, is a former High
Springs Plan Board member.
He said being a member of the
Plan Board and attending every
City Commission meeting over
the last year has made him
aware of the issues facing High
Springs. According to Levine,
this year's election will be an
important one in determining
the city's future.
"High Springs is at the
tipping point, so this campaign
is not just a campaign to elect a
Commissioner, it is a campaign
to ensure a better future for
everyone in our unique city,"
said Levine.
Some.of the issues Levine is
revolving his campaign around
include traffic, updating city
codes, and improving
communication between
residents and City
Commissioners. Another
priority in his campaign is
strengthening family values and
community pride in High
Springs. Levine said having
community events involving the
entire family will help
strengthen pride in the
community and make families
closer.
Levine said he has worked
endlessly on his campaign the
last couple of months meeting
people everyday and listening
to their concerns. Levine said
he's ready for the challenge of
becoming a High Springs
Commissioner.
"Those that watched me on
the Plan Board know I thrive on
challenge and am not afraid to
tackle the hardest problems and
make tough decisions today that
will give us a better life
tomorrow," said Levine.


Williams

Dick Williams
After placing a respectable
third in last year's four
candidate field for High Springs
City Commission, Williams
decided to take one more shot a
Commission seat this year.
Williams is a retired
environmental specialist with
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, and
a former reporter for the
Orlando Sentinel. He said one
of the issues he's fighting for in
his campaign is having the city
do a better job in providing
services to senior citizens, and
feels High Springs has
neglected the senior
community.
"The seniors are basically
forgotten in the community,"
said Williams.
During the campaign
Williams has made it a point to
walk around High Springs and
talk to at least 10 residents a
day. He said he speaks to
residents at their homes,
discussing issues facing High
Springs. If elected
Commissioner, Williams
promises citizen's voices will
be heard in the city.
"By voting for me, city


residents are voting for
themselves and their right to be
heard on the City Commission,"
said Williams.
As Commissioner, Williams
said he'd protect the city's
natural resources, along with
advocating better planning and
tighter controls on future
development. In addition, he
wants the City to update its
comprehensive plan
immediately. Williams said he
doesn't want to see growth
stopping in the area, but instead
hopes High Springs in the
future will have a better handle
on managing growth.
Williams said a priority of
his, if elected, is fighting
against cuts in police, fire, and
city staff personnel. He
believes a strong police force is
essential in the community,
because in his opinion he feels
there's a major drug problem
facing High Springs. Williams
said the problem isn't getting
much attention in the
community, and believes there
is a need for public awareness,
along with Community
involvement to fight drugs.
Williams said he's not
seeking a seat on the City
Commission for the limelight,
but instead sees the opportunity
of becoming a Commissioner as
a chance to devote service to the
city he loves.
"I don't want to be a hero. I
just want to work for the
community," said Williams.
On Oct. 23, a candidate
forum with the-three candidates
will be held at the High Springs
Women's Club. Voters will go
to the polls on Nov. 6.

Flames engulf High Springs




Police vehicle


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS While
conducting traffic on U.S. 27 in
High Springs last Saturday
morning, the furthest thing on
the mind of High Springs Police
Officer Deborah Holley was the
thought of her patrol car
catching on fire.
Unfortunately for Holley
and her vehicle, that exactly
what happened to the 2000
unmarked Ford Crown Victoria
police cruiser while she was
busy directing traffic from a
crash that occurred earlier in the
morning. According to Holley,
she parked her car in front of
the C&G Small Engine Repair
shop at 9: a.m. and started
conducting traffic moving
through U.S. 27. Several
minutes later someone told her
that smoke and flames were
coming from under the hood of
the vehicle.
Holley quickly approached
the car and. took out equipment
stored inside. While still on the
scene where the earlier crash
occurred, the High Springs Fire

Sippy cups linked

to cavities


Q: How could a sippy cup
be a dental health problem?
A: The Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention
compared the dental health of
Americans from two periods:
1988-1994 and 1999-2002.
The result: a 15.2 percent
increase in cavities among 2-
to5-year-olds. More research
shows the nearly one-third of
toddlers with tooth decay used
"sippy cups," those little
plastic drinking cups with a lid
to prevent spills. Thus, a few


tips from American Academy
of Pediatric Dentistry:
The sippy cup should not
be used for long periods of
time.
Unless being used at
mealtime, it should be filled
only with water.
Sippy cups should not be
used at nap time or bedtime
unless they have only water in
them.
Schedule regular visits
with a pediatric dentist to help
keep your child cavity-free.


For more information or free brochures, please call our
office.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2007 A3


The Sacramental Presence of Christ


Join us at these local events


Saint Paul's Letter to the Church at
Ephesus contains the substance of the
Christian Faith and instructions for
living a Christian life. Just as Christ
showed through His example and the
Apostles after Him, priests and pastors
are responsible for teaching God's
children the meaning of Scripture and
emphasizing its application
to life.
I want to focus on one
verse from the Epistle to the
Ephesians, chapter 3, verse
14, "For this reason I bow
my knees before the Father."
The verse is pretty straight
forward, a'nd probably -
doesn't need much I
explanation. Christians
should be very familiar with
the practice of kneeling in The Ven.
prayer, but if I asked, "why Leasure
do you bend your knee" All Saint
what would your answer be? Church,
Saint Paul shares his A parish
wisdom on the practice of Christian
bending the knee in his Church
Epistle to the Ephesians.
The verse begins with the words, "for
this reason." You night ask; "for what
reason?" We have to find out what
"this" is, according to St. Paul. Just
looking at the verse before or after this
one will not help you to understand. It
is only when you read the entire Epistle
that you can come to a full
understanding of the point he is making.
For Saint Paul, ritualism is the
natural expression of his understanding
of the purpose of God, through. Christ,
Sfor the Church. It is a response to his
understanding of the Holy Trinity and
its relationship to Salvation:
In Chapter 1, he gives praise
individually to the Father, the Son, and
the Holy Spirit: To the Father, praise is


s
G
c
n


given for His choosing, and bestowing
of grace (v.4-6). To the Son, praise is
given for the work of redemption, the
forgiveness of sin, and His working
within us (v.7-12). To the Holy Spirit,
praise is given because He who seals
our salvation and guarantees our
inheritance before God (v.13-14). St.
Paul's ritualism was
based on his
understanding of the
greatness of God in
\ relationship to his own
salvation.
His ritualism is also a
response to his
understanding of the
unity of the Church. The
Holy Trinity is the model
of unity, and it is through
John E. our union with God that
the Church is made to be
Anglican One, in spite of
;ainesville. geography and time.
Df the This is what St. Paul
Episcopal called the mystery "3:3
how the mystery was
made known to me by
revelation, as I have written briefly. 3:4
When you read this you can perceive my
insight into the mystery of Christ, 3:5
which was not made known to the sons
of men in other generations as it has
now been revealed to his holy apostles
and prophets by the Spirit; 3:6 that is,
how the Gentiles are fellow heirs,
members of the same body, and
partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus
through the gospel."
When St. Paul says, "for this reason
I bend the knee, he is saying that when
he considers the wonder of the Trinity
and the Church bringing together
strangers into one family of God, under
the same Fatherhood, the most natural
expression is adoration.


What then do we learn about gesture
and ritualism in worship? It is a
physical expression of what is already
known and felt in the soul of man and it
is appropriate for the Church to
continue, as an expression of its
adoration.
Is Ritual gesture necessary? This is
like asking if it is necessary to shake
hands or hug someone you are glad to
see. Of course it is not necessary, and
this is precisely the point. It is not out of
necessity that we act in a certain way-
it is out of emotion and nature that we
instinctively respond with physical
gestures. Man was created with a body
and soul and it is impossible for the soul
to feel great adoration and love toward
God while the body remains unaffected.
The final part of this verse is also
worth looking at. St, Paul states that, "I
bow my knees before God the Father"
This quite literally means that St. Paul
bends the knee towards or facing God
the Father. It is the conscious.
understanding that his prayer and
adoration is in the presence of God.
Some denominations genuflect
towards the altar where Christ is
mysteriously present under the form of
the sacrament of His Body and Blood.
He is present among us, hidden beneath
the veil of what our senses perceive as
bread and wine but which are
instruments by which Christ
communicates His presence to us.
Impossible? Yes, just as impossible as
the incarnation or the resurrection from
the dead. Just as impossible as taking a
sinner who is dead in sin and making
him alive by the Spirit of God to new
life. Our religion is full of mystery and
awe. When you are in the awesome
reality of His presence you cannot help
but bend the knee and adore God.

SHEFFIELD:
Continued from page Al


Theater open three


days a week


Once the offer was made,
Bobby and Janice bought the
Business in a matter of weeks.
While providing customers
with traditional hardware
items, Sheffield's also has
departments for pump sales
along with service and well
drilling. And as the only
hardware store in High Springs
at the time, Janice says
business was good. But in later
years with the opening of both
a True Value and ACE
hardware store in clqse
proximity to Sheffield's in
downtown High Springs,
business took a downturn.
However, Janice says the store
has been able to maintain
ground with the competition.
"It's not what it used to be,
but it still keeps us going," said
Janice.
Even with other hardware
stores competing for
customers, the family has
longtime customers walk
through the doors looking for
personalized service and
quality products at an
affordable price. Over the
years she's enjoyed the
customers who rely on her
store for their hardware needs.
"Being here 35 years we've
seen great customers," said
Sheffield.
Fifteen years after going
into the hardware business,
another business opportunity
presented itself. The Priest
Theater located on 15 NW 1st
Street and directly behind the
couple's store was facing an
uncertain future. The owner of
the theater was a friend of the
Sheffields and offered the
couple a chance to buy the
business..
Once the family bought the
theater, it took a year and a half
to refurbish the building.
/-Today' the theater seats 240
people and entertains movie
goers every Friday, Saturday,
and Monday. Depending on
the movie shown, Janice said
attendance for an individual
showing is usually between 80
and 220 people.
The Priest Theater, which
opened in 1914, is the oldest
operating theater in Florida.,
When the theater was first
built, minstrel shows were
performed in front of
audiences. Dressing rooms
inside the theater that were
used by performers in the.
building's early years still exist
in the backstage area, along
with the stage's original wood
floors and columns.
Another historical aspect of
the theater is the upstairs


seating area. According to
Sheffield, the area was
designated for black theater
patrons during segregation. In
addition, the facility at that
time included separate
restrooms for both black and
white theater goers.
While much has changed in
the intervening years since the
theater originally opened,
operational tasks remain
largely the same. When it's
showtime at the theater, Bobby
Sheffield is in charge of
displaying the evening's movie
using an X-16 projector dating
from the 1940s. But it's the
setup requirement that is labor
.intensive threading film into
the projector, taking two hours
of his time prior to a showing.
While Bobby is busy
preparing the night's feature
presentation in the film room,
other family members work in
the theatre's concession area.
At the theater entrance, Janice
hands customers their tickets
before they settle down inside
the downstairs seating area.
As customers enter the
historic building, they receive a
reminder via a posted notice
that they are expected to adhere
to a mandatory dress code for
patrons. The code, which
Janice admits is somewhat
more relaxed than stated,
prohibits men from wearing
baggy pants, while women are
cautioned not to wear clothes
that reveal too much cleavage.
Janice explains that as times
change the dress code has
changed as well, and men pan
now wear baggy pants if they
use a belt. As for the women,
Janice said current styles are
acceptable as long as they are
modest.
Once the movie begins,
Janice is on call as she assumes
her role as a chaperone,
overseeing activities in the
seating area. She says for the
most part, she reminds patrons
to keep quiet during the
showing as well as the
occasional admonishment to
keep feet off of seats.
Married for 43 years,
Bobby and Janice have three
grown, children, along with six
grandchildren. Janice is
grateful for the business
opportunities that have
enriched the couple's life
together and the children who
have shared,it.
"We've been blessed
beyond measures. God's
blessed us with great kids," she
said.

on the issue.
"I think it's a good process
to work out differences," said
Drumm.
High Springs Commissioner
Terry Maltbie wishes the city
had more legal options on the
issue. "It sounds like we don't
have too many choices," said
Maltbie.
Maltbie's colleague on the
Commission, Byran Williams,
said it's imperative for High
Springs to sit down with the
county and come up with a plan
to regulate the sanctuary. He
said the Alachua County
Commission has to take into

ACCIDENT:

which turned the interstate and several
other area highways into virtual parking
lots.
The 7 a.m. accident occurred just north
of Alachua's exit 399. Southbound traffic
on 1-75 was being rerouted onto U.S.
Highway 441 due to the 5 a.m. accident.
But shortly after police began to take
motorists off of 1-75, an International semi
truck plowed into the rear of a Kenworth
semi, pushing it into a van transporting
Lake City V.A. Hospital patients to
Gainesville.
The driver of the International truck was

Garrison apparently did not retreat
and his brother intervened. After a
scuffle with police, Garrison was
stunned with a taser and arrested.
Police said they never recovered a
weapon from Garrison.
It would have been unlikely
that Garrison would receive a 15-
year sentence if he didn't have a


criminal record. His incarceration history,
however, goes back some 20 years.
Garrison has faced charges running the
gamut including aggravated assault with
intent to commit a felony, possession of
crack cocaine, aggravated stalking,
burglary and more according to the Florida
Department of Corrections' website.

gh Springs hopeful for solution on sanctuary


High Springs' residents and the
issue of possible contamination
of city water from the sanctuary.
"It's a bad situation out
there," said Williams.
Haven Acres, located at
21023 NW 168th Lane, has
been under a cloud of
controversy over the last several
months with reports of animal
cruelty and improper shelter for
cats living in the sanctuary. In
August, City of High Springs
employee Sandi Richmond,
Alachua County Detective
Rachel Stephens, and
University of Florida
veterinarian Amy Stone visited
the sanctuary, and were given
permission by Haven Acres


owners Steve and Pennie
Lefkowitz to view conditions
on the property.
After the tour, Richmond,
who is a trained animal cruelty
investigator, cited in her report
that cats at Haven Acres lived in
unacceptable living conditions
and lacked proper medical care.
Richmond stated healthy cats
were mixed in with sick cats.
and that the animals at the
sanctuary were without
sufficient food and water. The
Lefkowitz said Richmond's
report was misleading and
inaccurate.
The couple said animals at
the sanctuary are living in clean
living conditions and being fed


a proper diet. In addition, the
couple mentioned that ;anytime
there is a sick cat, the animal is
immediately rerioved away
from health\ cats and taken to a
special section rf the propertN
for proper treatment. ,
When asked about High
Springs filing a motion with the
'county on Haven Acres, Pennie
,Lefkboitz declined comment.
On Nlonda'. Alachua
County spokesperson Mark
Sexton said the county isn't
allowed to discuss matters that
are currently in mediation.

ame of driver not released


into the back of the Kenworth truck which
was reportedly carrying chicken. Both
trucks were engulfed in flames although the
driver of the Kenworth was able to escape
with minor injuries. The driver of the
International truck died on scene. Police
reported that the flames were too intense for
anyone to reach the man trapped in the cab.
The identification of the deceased driver
has not been released pending identification
by the Alachua County Medical Examiner.
One of the 10 passengers in the V.A.
Hospital van sustained critical injuries
while the other passengers suffered minor
injuries.


Traffic from 1-75 'remained at a
standstill for most of Friday. Drivers who.
were rerouted found themselves crawling
down U.S. 441 through Alachua, High.
Springs and Gainesville. Still, hundreds
more drivers were stuck dn the interstate
caught between exits for most of the day.
Many of the drivers parked their vehicles,
turned them off and. nmaie conversation and
sat on the guardrail between the north and
southbound lanes.
The scene of theAlachua accident had
not been cleared until late Friday.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2007 A7

FESTIVALS: Hawthorne, High Springs, Alachua all bustled with excitement
Continued from page A]


others were riding ponies or trying their hand at
candle making. Still others were mystified by the
huge black kettles simmering over wood burning
fires, where cooks in period clothing served up
hot steaming corn-on-the-cob and boiled peanuts.
The cool green grass growing along the


sloping sides of the shaded sinkhole proved'to
be an excellent spot for wearied individuals to
take a break and feast on chicken dinners
cooked up by the High Springs Masonic Lodge
while listening to the musical strains of down-
home fiddlers. Those in search of a little
Action needed look no further than
the limbo and twist contests or
iir country line dancing. But if folks
Were looking for sack races or pigs
for sale, it was only a short trip across
the county to Hawthorne where the
I Hog Festival was in full swing.
The fourth annual Hog Fest took
place at the Hawthorne Sports
Complex on State Road 20. Who
Could resist the hog calling contest at
3 p.m. or the hog chase scheduled for
4 p.m.? -There was food, music,
Games, arts and crafts and special fun
for the kids. Face painting, soccer,
and a giant inflatable slide kept
youngsters occupied while parents
browsed through vendor booths
looking for a bargain or a bite to eat.
It was a full day for area residents
who came out early and stayed late
for food, fun and festivities. But as
one festival winds down, another one
is on the horizon.
Back in downtown Alachua on
Sunday, the serpentine Main Street
-.igwas lined with vendors who were
open for business from 11 a.m. until 5
p.m. The Alachua Harvest Moon
Festival, sponsored by the Alachua
Business League and the City of
S.''; ... Alachua, included music, food,
-.1 entertainment and a variety of booths
si offering unique holiday gift ideas. In
between rain showers Sunday
afternoon, parents strolled along


Alachua's Main Street, along Scarecrow
Row, pushing strollers past friendly
scarecrows mounted on downtown light
poles. Main Street was closed to traffic,
vehicular that is, as streams 'of festival
goers strolled up and down the city's
downtown area, stopping to browse and
chat with a neighbor. Whether looking
for homemade jams and jellies, a piece of
hand crafted jewelry, or even the seasonal
pumpkin, it was all available at the
Harvest Moon Festival. And if by chance
someone said they saw Elvis performing
this past weekend, they were surely in
Alachua, and also witnessed poodle skirts
and hoola-hoops in action.
What has,been called a weekend of
festivals certainly lived up to the
.description, offering a bit of
entertainment and whimsy for children of
all ages.

From New York City to High

Shien I read the Letter to the Editor of the
High S.pv,'ms Herald written b\ Mr. Malthie
in support ofGene Le\ine for Commissioner,
i I \was astounded. Mr. Maltbie wrote
passionately. "One of the most refreshing

Sno personal agenda and is not pan of an\
particular camp or philosophy "
SMr. N Mtble must surely not be speaking
about the Gene Le\ ine I know\. The Gene
Levine I know has absolutely no agenda that
is not personal. He has conni ed from the
time he mo\ed to High Springs to run the

tri\ ia to impress upon them his tremendous
importance.
The people w ho moi\ed to this area
w\ anted a chance to enjoy tranquility. of

repeatedly harassed by the "Boca Raton Code

extremely interesting in light of the fact that
S dthe developer's daughter-in-law\ and tho of
their grandchildren are Je\ws. the shocked
expressions on the faces plainly read (and I

He said the revenues from the agreement will
go toward High Springs' general fund for the
police department's communications center. The
City Manager added the extra funds for the
communication center will serve to decrease the
possibility of High Springs eventually farming
out emergency calls to Alachua County. Drumm
explained that similar interlocal agreements are
used often in Florida.
"This is not unique. It's happening in other
parts of the state," said Drumm.
Former High Springs city attorney Jim
Pendland warned commissioners during last
week's city commission meeting about the
possible caveats of the agreement. He said High
Springs would be responsible for liability and


insurance if an error occurred on their part during
the course of the contract.
Drumm said High Springs will soon obtain
maps of Hawthorne so communications
personnel are familiar with city streets when
taking an emergency call. He expects personnel
will quickly grasp the activities inside
Hawthorne.
"In a very short period we'll be up to date
with the happenings in Hawthorne on a daily

Dog fighting awareness



creates more demand for


Operation PitNip


Special to Alachua County Today
the plight of pit bull dogs
raised for the illegal dog
fighting trade grabbed national
attention recently when f ooih. ll
star Michael Vick was exposed
as a prominent participant in the
tragic sport. Although that
event unfolded in another part
of the country, pit bull lovers in
Alachua County were stirred to
take action to protect their own
dogs.
Operation PitNip, a program
that targets pit bull
overpopulation by providing
free spay/neuter surgeries for
pit bulls, has received so many
more calls for help in the past
two months that a second
surgical center was added to
keep up with the demand.
Operation PitNip was
initiated by Dr. Debbie Cottrell
who first began to volunteer her
time and donating supplies to
help the beleaguered dogs in
November 2005, after seeing
how many Pit Bulls were
abandoned during Hurricane
Katrina. Animal funding
agencies took notice of her
innovative approach to *the pit


bull problem* and soon began
sending grants her way to
increase the number of dogs
that could have the surgery.
*Pit bulls, more than any
other breed, are considered to
be disposable because there are
so many of them," Cottrell said.
"Operation PitNip*s ultimate
goal is to change that.*
This year, the program
gained the attention of the
national animal welfare
foundation PetSmart Charities,
which awarded $10,000 to
Operation PitNip as well as an
additional $4,000 to No More
Homeless Pets-for PitNip. The
funds arrived just in time to
respond to the deluge of calls
from pit bulls owners
concerned about the attention to
the Michael Vick case.
Sterilized pit bulls have little
value to the dog fighting culture
and make more reliable
household pets.
The funding made it
possible to expand the program
from its original location at
West End Animal Hospital to a
second site at Haile Plantation
Animal Clinic.


*Pit bulls are the most
common breed admitted to the
Alachua County Animal
Services shelter and are the
least likely to be adopted,*
according to Dr. Julie Levy,
Professor at the University of
Florida*s College of Veterinary
Medicine. *Although organized
dog fighting has not historically
been a problem reported
commonly in Alachua County,
a series of undercover
investigations has recently
resulted in several arrests for
dog fighting and the seizure of
more than 50 pit bulls. In one
case, pit bulls were stolen from
the shelter the night following
their seizure. In another case, a
dispute over the ownership of a
pit bull resulted in the shooting
death of a man whose child was
riding in the back seat of the car
the victim was driving.*
Free spay arnd neuter
surgery is available for all pit
bulls and pit bulls mix breeds
residing in Alachua County'
families. Reservations for
surgery can be made by calling
352-472-7626.

New classroom technology



boosts learning in area schools

Special to Alachua County Today
The dry-erase board, which
was once considered a big
improvement over the standard
chalkboard, has become just
another bulletin board in Kyra
Purvis' fourth-grade classroom
at Newberry Elementary School.
These days her students'
attention is focused on the

over and in other ways
manipulate what's on the screen.
"The kids love the interaction'with the
SMART Board," said Purvis. "It gets them
moving, it's exciting, and they're learning more
because they enjoy it."
"I think this technology is better than copying
stuff out of a book," said student Jacquez
Dolbeck. "It's more fun, too."
Purvis is orie of many Alachua County Public
School teachers who are taking advantage of
SMART Boards and other, state-of-the-art
technology to boost learning in their classrooms.
This year the district was one of just six in
Florida to win a $1.2 million dollar Enhancing
Education Through Technology (EETT) federal
grant that is designed to teach students 21st
Century skills.
"When these students get' out into the
workforce, they'll be working on projects and
collaborating with people working in the same
building and in locations throughout the world,"
said Sandy Medeiros, the district's supervisor of
instructional technology. "They'll have to be able
to use technology to do that."
The EETT grant is funding SMART Boards,
student laptops, teacher training, technology
coaches and other resources in 18 Alachua
County schools this year, including I
Newberry and Alachua elementary schools,
Newberry High, and Oak View and Mebane
middle schools. Schools are also using other
technology funds, grants, PTA money and
even donations from parents and business
partners to make the technology available to.
more students.
"Several of our teachers demonstrated the
technology during our open house," said Oak
View Principal Karen Clarke. "The parents
were so impressed that some of them opened
up their checkbooks right then and there.
We've collected nearly $4,700 since then-
people are really excited about its potential."
Just a couple of miles from Purvis'
Newberry Elementary classroom, students in
Christopher Nitti's language arts class at Oak
View are creating iMovies that will reinforce
lessons on geography and descriptive Jon
language. Nitti demonstrated the technique Ne\
boa


on the SMART Board in his classroom, and then
the students got to work using laptops, Nitti says
the technology really motivates his students.
"It activates their interest, makes them want
to learn," he said. "They absolutely remember the
things you teach them this way, whereas if they'd
just read it and written it down, they'd forget."
Teachers like Purvis and Nitti say the SMART
Board has changed the way they teach, giving
them access to 'a much wider range of materials
and making learning more interactive-and more
fun-for their students. An added benefit is that
the students are becoming experts in the
technology itself, not just the content. In' fact,
students at Oak View have taken so well to the
technology that several of them are now training
their fellow students and otherteachers to use it.
"I get to teach the teachers and I get to work
with the technology," said 7th-grader Demi Hunt,
one of the student trainers. "It's really fun."
"Preparing students for future jobs and future
careers is much more than teaching them to read
and write," said Nitti. "They've got to be able to
use technology every day, and students who have
these opportunities will have an advantage over
those who do not."

Raiders' rally comes up short

ALACHUA 'Trailing
Suwannee by 29 points at about
the midway point of the third
quarter, it would have been easy
for the Santa Fe High School
football team to quit and start
looking towards the followinP,

However, the Raiders battled

touchdowns and threw for

Jamal White also finished
with three touchdowns for

White ran for a score and had
seven catches for 98 yards and
two touchdown receptions for
the Raiders (2-5).

By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
LAKE CITY In recent
years for the Santa Fe High
School cross country program
more has seemed to be
expected from the boys team
than the girls team. That has to
do with the talent and the
experience that has appeared to
be more evident from the boys
squad, which has advanced to a
regional meet in each of the
past two seasons.


Now while the Raiders girls
team is still improving and
trying to gain experience their
performance at last Saturday's.
(Oct. 13th) Greater North
Florida Invitational at
Columbia High School
definitely caught the attention
of their coach.
The Raiders placed seventh
out of the eight-team field and
were led by Corrine Larsen's
season-best time of 24:42 that
placed her 27th out of 57
runners.
"I'm real impressed with the

Perfect Panthers
It's time to give credit where
credit is due. The Newberry
High School football team
should be recognized greatly for
such an outstanding season thus
far. The Panthers have
conquered every team this year
and in dominating fashion.
Newberry
is 7-0 and
is beating
i t s
opponents
by an
average of
35 points.

Most of Ne\ herr "s games
have already been decided in

Panthers drilled Dtuinellon by
39 points. Prior to that loss,
Dunnellon was 4-2 with

There's plenty of talk about

he is such a large part of

Eleven-year-old Emily liked being on her rtLh>r's boat. Cjtai~tJ

Gator bites
The Florida Gator football
team is traveling to Kentucky
this weekend. However, this:
will not be an ordinary trip.
Instead of Florida rolling into
Lexington with a high ranking,
it's the Wildcats who are on top.
Kentucky is ranked seventh in
the BCS standings while the
mighty Gators are 15th.
After watching Florida play
LSU a few weeks ago, it was
clear that the Gators can be a
dominating team. After two
opportunities to push its lead to
31-14, Florida found. itself on
the wrong side of the score.
But, renmt ber ho\'. desperate
the Tigers were. They went for
five fourth down', and
converted on all of them. The)
also had to have a fumble and
an interception off a helmet to
get back into the game. The
Gators are better than many if

Mikell, who said he plays
Turkey Creek pretty much
everyday, shot a 41 over the
first nine holes. But he,
improved on the final nine
holes, carding a 37, %\hicli
included birdies on the 10th and
15th holes.
"I hadn't been playing too
well, so it was good to come out
and post something decent,"
said Mikell, who placed sixth at
last year's district tournament.
"It feels good, but I'm happier
that the team won, that's a lot
more important than the
individual thing. The individual
title without the team title
wouldn't have been near as
good."
Senior T.J., Ward finished
second for Santa Fe and fourth
overall with an 82, which
included a nice approach shot
from 175 yards out that he put
on the green on the 18th hole.
Jerrod Giron followed with an
.84, Richard Greer was next
with an 88 while Josh
Dubberly's 90 rounded out the
winning-effort for the Raiders.
"I'm super happy-with them.
Every single player beat their
average and as a coach you
can't ask for anything better
than' that," said Anderson,
whose club fired a 169 through
the front nine and posted a 163
over the back nine. "I think we
were ahead at the turn but the
back nine really cemented it for
us."
According to Anderson, a
match back with scorecards
using the hardest handicap hole
and back was used to separate,
Ward, John Barrett Cooper of
Bradford, Union County's Kris
Bracewell and Trent Ragans of
Madison County, who 'each
shot an 82. The result was a
second-place finish for Cooper,
a third-place finish for
Bracewell, with Ward and
Ragans placing fourth and
fifth, respectively. Taylor

PANTHERS:
Continued from page B]
late score in the third game of
the season.
Undefeated teams usually
don't need an added incentive,
especially when they face a club
like Dunnellon (4-3) that had
two previous losses and feature
linebacker Lerentee McCray, a
University of Miami
commitment. But Keeler said
his team had a little extra
motivation.
"We took a little fuel from the
Ocala newspaper," said the
coach. "They basically said we
had a good record and hadn't
played anybody and that
Dunnellon had a good record
and their schedule was tougher
than ours."
Regardless the Panthers just
kept rolling. Ivey's 37-yard
scoring run gave the home team
a 7-0 lead at the 7:42 mark of
the first period, before the fleet-
footed back, who has received
interest from Wofford, Middle
Tennessee, Florida
International, Florida A&M,
Bethune-Cookman and
Campbell, scored twice in the
second quarter. Ivey had a 5-
yard touchdown run less than a
minute into the second period
before ripping off a 22-yard
scamper to the end zone which
gave the Panthers a 21-0 edge
with 7:14 left in the first half.
The Tigers' only points came
when Rodrigo Quezada booted


a 46-yard field goal on the last
play of the opening half.
But Newberry answered back
right away as quarterback Guy
Brown found his younger
brother Ryan with a 25-yard
scoring pass over the middle
that padded the Panthers'
cushion to 28-3 just 49 seconds
into the third quarter. Later in
the period Ivey found the end
zone for the fourth and final
time on the night, scoring from
two-yards out at the 3:34 mark.
Xavier Woods capped the
offensive barrage and provided
the eventual final margin with a
two-yard plunge with 5:53 to
go.
"We had three fumbles in the
first half, fwo of those fumbles,
we were going into score. That
second fumble they turned it
around and got three points off
it," Keeler said. "It's
homecoming and it's a lot
different for a coach than it is
for everyone else on the
outside. You try and get through
the activities and hope and pray
you have your focus at kickoff
time."
Offensively, Guy Brown was
2-for-2 passing for 35 yards and
the touchdown. Both of his
passes were caught by Ryan
Brown. Woods added 76
rushing yards on 11 carries in
the win for Newberry. Phillip
Warner was a perfect 7-for-7 on
extra point attempts and was not
needed to punt all evening.
For the Tigers, quarterback

Several Panther defenders bring down a Dunnellon ball carrier
last Friday in Newberry's thumping of the Tigers.


RICK BABSTONIAlachua County Today
Dunnellon's Andrew Stichter tries to get a pass off while being
rushed by Panther Xavier Woods last Friday night.


Andrew Stichter was 3-for-8
passing for 19 yards with an
interception. Bubba Black ran
for 92 yards on 13 carries in the
loss for Dunnellon.
Aside from seeing the two
teams match up, the battle of
each club's number-four,
Newberry's Ivey' and
Dunnellon's McCray gained
some attention. It was reported
that Meyer was there to see
McCray, who easily had double
digits in tackles on the night.
"The kid (McCray) can
definitely cover some ground
and he has a knack for the ball.
He is playing linebacker and
I'm pretty sure he'll be playing
safety in college. "Keeler said.
"But I think our number four
won the battle of the number
fours."
While the. Homecoming
activities added to the
atmosphere surrounding the
game, Keeler said that while
Meyer's presence drew the
notice of those in attendance it
was not a distraction to his club.
"No player or coach was
concerned Urban Meyer was
there," said Keeler, who added
that an assistant coach from
Bethune-Cookman also
watched the game. "I'm glad he
was there. But you're not
thinking about how big that is at
that time that the University of
Florida football coach is
standing under your goal post
during the game."
On a personnel note, Keeler


said that starting strong safety
Demetrius Debose, a
sophomore, and reserve running
back Alex Lewis, a junior, -have
chosen not to finish out the
season as a member of the
Panthers.
,After seven straight weeks of
putting on the pads on a Friday
night, the Panthers are on their
bye week this week.
"We are very fortunate where
our bye week ended up this
year, our schedule worked out
in our favor for this," Keeler
said. "We definitely needed a
week off. We're playing well
and everything but it's time for
a week off and time to get
everyone rested up and have a
little down time."
Newberry (2-0 in district
play) will be back in action on
Friday, Oct. 26 when Ocala
Trinity Catholic comes to
Panther Stadium for a crucial
District 4-2B game at 7:30 p.m.
The Celtics (4-3,) are coached
by former' standout Panther,
Ricky Nattiel, who went on to
play wide receiver for the
University of Florida before
playing in two Super Bowls
during his six-year NFL career
with the Denver Broncos.

them ran pretty good times and
we're getting a lot better as a
team overall."
Also notable is the fact that
the Raiders have just five girls
on the varsity team which is the
minimum amount of runners to
have in order to be included in
the team standings.
"It was actually a good race
today, I'm a cool weather
runner and I tend to do better in
that," Larsen said. "I think our
team is doing really well
staying together on pace."
The girls race which spanned
three miles across and around
the campus of Columbia High
School (like the boys race
which started at 9 a.m.) started
under slightly cool conditions
at 8 a.m. Rebecca Tenbroeck
was Santa Fe's second finisher
as she placed 33rd with a
personal-best time of 25:49.
During the final 100 yards of
the race which finished on the
football field at Tiger Stadium,
Tenbroeck passed four runners,
two of which she snuck by in
the last 20 yards.
Senior Aimee Graeber was
42nd with a time of 26:56 with
senior Lizzi Condo placing
46th with a time of 27:55.
Alyssa Rivas rounded Santa
Fe's five with a time of 30:26.
"They have fun," said Turner,
who is in his 21st year as Santa
Fe's head cross county and
track and field coach. "They
have a goal each meet for a
time and I think they are pretty
much meeting their time a
minute here and there."
Heather Lundin of
Ridgeview won the girls race in
a time of 20:06, while P.K.
Yonge finished first in the team
standings.
On the boys side, Drew
Burgett placed 14th out of 65
runners and crossed the finish
line in a time of 18':31 to lead
the Raiders, who placed last out
of the nine-team field. While
Burgett returned to action after
a bruised right knee forced him
to miss Santa Fe's last meet two
weeks ago, the Raiders were
without Jay Jett on Saturday.
Turner said Jett had flu-like
symptoms and could not run.


Burgett said he ran a solid
race and he found himself in a
tight situation during the final
30 yards of the race. The junior
glanced over his shoulder and
appeared to give off a surprised
look when he realized there
were two runners immediately
behind him and looking to gain
a position.
"The only people that
motivate me are people I know
and I knew this one kid (Jeff
Young of Gainesville High
School) who was about to pass
me so I couldn't let that
happen," Burgett said. "I didn't
want him to pass me."
Burgett held off Young
(18:32.21) and Middleburg's
Cameron Carroll (18:32.76)
down the stretch.
Turner thought his top runner
could have performed a little
better.
"He (Burgett) has to stay
focused," Turner said. "He
hasn't been training well for the
last week because he was
injured."
Junior John Stickles turned in
a personal-best time of 20:23 to
place 45th, with freshman
Adam Soistman placing 47th
with a personal-best time of
22:39. Senior Thomas Jones
was 61st with a time of 22:27
while senior Rufus White was
62nd with a time of 22:33 to
round out Santa Fe's top five.
Senior Ryan Tenbroeck was
sixth for Santa Fe with a time of
23:36. Only the top five runners
for each team score points.
"Overall I liked how they rag
today," Turner said. "This
(meet) is always a stepping
stone and with Jay getting bacl
healthy we'll bT okay."
Ridgeview's Luis Maldonadd
won the boys race in a time of
16:54, while P.K. Yonge alsd
finished first in the teani
standings on the boys side.
Santa Fe is back in action this
weekend as they are expected
to head to Gainesville to run iii
the Buchholz Last Chance meet
on Saturday hosted by Santa F4
Community College. The boys
race is slated for 8:35 a.m. with
the girls scheduled to start at 9
a.m.

RAIDERS:
Continued from page Bl
points, it's says a lot about the
character of these guys and how
hard they've played here in the
second half."
Santa Fe found itself trailing
28-6 at halftime and then 35-6
at the 5:56 mark of the third
period. Campbell, a junior, who
was rolling to his left, found
Jamaal Montague with an 18-
yard scoring pass to give
Suwannee its biggest lead of the
night at 29 points.
But the Raiders started their
comeback on the first play of
their ensuing possession.
Sophomore quarterback Frank
Snead hit White with a short
pass over the middle, which the
fleet-footed junior turned into
an 83-yard touchdown as he
bolted down the far sideline.
The score made it a 35-13 game
with 5:33 left in the third period.
Santa Fe forced Suwannee to
punt on each of its next two
possessions, but the Raiders'
next two drives stalled as well
as Snead threw a pair of
interceptions However, the
home team still had life as they
recovered the first of three
Bulldog fumbles with about
7:20 left in the fourth quarter.
White's 3-yard touchdown
capped a quick four-play 25-
yard drive and pulled the
Raiders to within 35-19 with
5:38 remaining.
Things got a little more
interesting when Santa Fe's
Cadarian Criswell recovered the
ensuing onside kick. A sprinting
Criswell caught the ball in mid
air after a Suwannee player
couldn't get a handle on the
ball. Although the Raiders were
then halted after failing to
convert a fourth-down and
seven-play at midfield, they did
regain possession after
Suwannee fumbled again three
plays later.
Santa Fe cashed in as Snead,
a transfer from Suwannee, hit
White with a 6-yard touchdown
pass which provided the
eventual final margin with 1:07
to go. The Raiders recovered
another onside kick but stalled
after four downs. The Bulldogs
then ran out the remaining 30
seconds and left Raider Field
with the victory.
"One of the things we've tried
to do and we talked at halftime,
it didn't matter what the
outcome of the game was
tonight, obviously we wanted to
win but I wanted these guys to
battle in the second half,"
Brooks said. "They came out in
the second half and even
surprised me. They did all the
little things right, we didn't
execute all of the things but we


did do enough to come back."
While Santa Fe controlled the
late stages of the game, it was
all Suwannee early on. The
versatile Campbell, who also
line up in the back field and as a
slot receiver, had almost
identical scoring runs of 14 and
15 yards in which he ran up the
middle and broke tackles on his
way to the end zone. .The
Bulldogs led 14-0 after 12
minutes of action before Jarrett
Yulee's 7-yard touchdown run
made it a 21-0 contest at the
9:44 mark of the second quarter.
Just over four minutes later
Jason Cherry hauled in a 49-
yard touchdown pass from
Suwannee's other quarterback,
Nick Bracewell, padding the
visitor's lead to 28-0. With
about 30 seconds left in the
opening half, Santa Fe's Deonte
Merricks scored from one-yard
out as the Raiders faced a 22-
point deficit at halftime.
The Bulldogs, who ran for
just 101 yards on 28 carries
were also whistled 11 times for
84 yards of penalties. Montague
ended the game with tree
catches for 49 yards and the
touchdown, while Cherry
followed with a pair of grabs for
76 yards and a score. John Hill
had four catches for 57 yards in
the win for the Bulldogs.
"It's been a long time since
We've had a lead like that and
evidently that's something else
we're going to have to work on,
to keep the momentum going
and not to be satisfied with that
lead," said Suwannee head
coach Tommy Chambers.
"They (Santa Fe) never gave up.
Santa Fe is starting a new
program under' coach Brooks
and he's doing a good job and
it's just going to keep getting


better as they go. But we have to
play 48 minutes."
The Raiders were led by the
lefty-throwing Snead, who was
11-for-29 for 122 yards, two
touchdowns and two
interceptions. Merricks led
Santa Fe's ground attack,
carrying the ball 15 carries for
93 yards. Collin Mixon was 1-
for-2 on extra-point attempts in
the loss for Santa Fe.
"I was very proud of them
defensively, the way we stepped
up and we took advantage of
opportunities given to us,"
Brooks said. "The defense
played great, there was a couple
missed assignments but if you
go hard a lot times you can
make up for it."
On the injury front, Brooks
said that running back K.J.
Carter, who has been out with a
knee injury, could be cleared to
play this week.
After three-straight home
games, Santa Fe hits the road to
face Citra North Marion in a
District 5-3A contest on Friday
at 7:30 p.m. The Colts were 10-
4 last fall and advanced to the
Class 3A state semifinals. North
Marion, which is ranked third in
Class 3A, currently owns a 5-1
record this season and is coming
off a 30-6 home win over
Gainesville last Friday. The
Colts have won each of the last
four meetings with the Raiders.
"They (North Marion) are
playing about as well as anyone
I have seen in a while," Brooks
said. "I'm not going to concede
anything, but if we go out and
play in the second half against
Suwannee for four quarters
we'll surprise some people."

out and a Cynthia Smith kill
gave the home team set point.
Two points later, a net violation
gave Santa Fe the second-game
win.
Just when it looked like Santa
Fe was going to sweep the
visiting Celtics, Trinity
Catholic refused to fall. A Pearl
block gave the Raiders a 13-9
lead midway through the third
game. The visitors later made it
a one point game on three
separate occasions until finally
deadlocking the contest at 19-
19. An Ashley Rosenboom kill
gave the Raiders match point,
but Santa Fe was unable to
convert. An errant hit by Santa
Fe then gave the game to the
Celtics.
The fourth game was the
most competitive of the match.
The two teams tied 11 times and
combined for six lead changes.
Leventhal recorded one of her
game-high 13 kills to put Santa
Fe ahead 13-9. The senior also
tallied 10 digs, six blocks and
three aces. After the Celtics
closed the match to a one-point
game, Pearl drilled a quick-set
kill to put the Raiders up 16-14.
With the visitors leading 17-
16 thanks to a 3-0 run, Smith
earned a kill to tie the game 17-
17. Later, a Pearl ace gave
Santa Fe a 22-19 advantage. A
Celtics hitting error clinched
the match for the home team.
New dished out 32 assists
while recording four aces, two
kills and 10 digs on the night.

* Newberry has
dropped 51 straight
matches dating back
to the 2005 season
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
NEWBERRY- The last time
the Newberry High School
volleyball team took to the court,
first-year head coach Michele
Bisaccia said her club showed
promise. But since its four-game
loss at Williston on Oct. 4th, the
Panthers went 11 days without
playing a match.
On Monday night in its regular-
season finale, Newberry returned
to action, and showed signs of a
club ready for its season to come
to a close.
Trenton handed the Panthers a
25-9, 25-12, 25-12 defeat and
spoiled senior night at William N.
Barry Gymnasium.
"I do (think the time off hurt
us). We were just out of sync,
we've lost the little chemistry we
did have," said Bisaccia, who had
a lengthy closed door meeting
with her team following the
match. "Yes (I think some of the
girls quit on me tonight)
absolutely. This was probably one
of the poorest matches we've
played."
Monday night's loss to the
Tigers (14-8) was Newberry's
51st 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 seniors Erin
Czerenda, Anna Thrasher and
Monique Williams were honored
before the match in a small
senior-night ceremony. But after
the match started, Trenton wasted
little time as they raced out to a 6-
0 lead in the opening game. A
short time later, the Tigers led 11-
7 before a kill and five straight
service points from Amanda
Harmer gave the visitors a

comfortable 17-7 cushion. Casey
Fischer collected four service
points while Amanda
Schwieterman fired a kill to close
out the first game for the visitors.
In the second game, Brenna
Land reeled off six straight
service points as the Tigers
grabbed an 8-2 advantage. A pair
of service points from
Schwieterman gave the visitors a
12-6 edge before Alexis Dixon
collected five service points to
give Trenton a commanding 22-9
lead as they went onto claim
game two.
An ace by Kaylee Parsons put
Newberry (0-15) ahead 4-3 in the
third game, which was just the
Panthers' third
lead of the ?'
entire match.
The home
team did try
and hang in
there and
trailed just 13-
9 at one point. Bisaccia
But five
service points from Sarah
Bussard helped move the Trenton
lead out to 19-9. Amanda Cline
picked up three service points to
close out the third game and the
match for Trenton.
Fischer finished with nine
service points, five aces and eight
kills for Trenton, which has'
advanced to the regional playoffs
in each of the last four years.
Danielle White added five blocks
irt the win for the Tigers.
For the Panthers, Lavarsha
Nattiel had eight, digs, with
Trasher following with seven digs
for Newberry, which hasn't been
to the regional playoffs since
1982.
On a night that didn't include
many bright spots, Nattiel turned
in an exceptional play towards the
end of the first game. The junior
jumped and delivered an
impressive block, stopping
White's attempted kill. That block
actually gave Newberry its ninth
and final point of the first game.
"I think that play is a metaphor
for the entire season," said
Bisaccia, who is also Newberry's
softball coach. "Part of me feels


1


when I see her make a block like
that, I'm so excited and so proud
of her that she just had an effort
and it turned out the way we
needed it to turn out. She showed
the skill level that she has and
reached her potential on that
block.
"Then part of me is so
frustrated that, it is not 100% and
that I have not seen it until this
match and that I don't get that all
of the time from her," the coach
continued. "That's every player,
the consistency with them is not
there with any individual."
With the 2007 season rapidly
nearing its end and the Panthers in
danger of posting their second-
straight winless campaign,
Bisaccia had a lengthy talk with
her team after what most likely
was their final home match this
season.
"I asked them how they wanted
to finish the season, 'how are we
going to end it girls?" Bisaccia
said. "This wasn't worth my time
and it wasn't worth.their time and
it didn't value the sacrifices and
the accomplishments they have
made, although small.
"Right now we don't have that
consistency and that mentality,"
the coach said. "We've been
trying all year and there are things
we've accomplished, but as of yet
I'm still not satisfied and the girls
are very frustrated"
But faced with a win or go
home situation, Bisaccia repeated
something to her team that's she's
been trying to reinforce all
season.
S"I've stressed to these girls a
million times," said the coach.
"Just like it's not about the points
it's about the effort, it's not where
we start it's where we finish."
The Pantheis start District 5-
3A tournament action with an
opening-round match on
Tuesday, Oct. 23 at P.K. Yonge.
Newberry's season will end if
they fail to pick up its elusive first
win of the season. The
tournament runs through
Thursday, Oct. 25.
