NEWBERRY In re-

Newberry has experienced
over the past few years, the
City is considering improve-
ments for its wastewater
facility and water system
capacity.
Newberry has appointed
the engineering firm of Jones
'Edmunds & Associates to
prepare a wastewater facili-
ties plan for the city's future
needs. The study will include
descriptions, preliminary
design information, and
proposed locations for an
expanded wastewater facility.

New process means

By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA A new
process for dealing with code
violations in the city of
Alachua will likely cut down
the, time it takes for
enforcement to occur. Earlier
this year, the Alachua. City
Commission adopted an
ordinance which allows for
the use of a special magistrate
in lieu of a Code
Enforcement Board.

VIOLATIONS on page A6


Grapski arraigned, says information is 'bare'


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
GAINESVILLE Political activist
Charles Grapski was arrested on Aug.
13, 2007 and released from jail Aug. 24,
but the saga is far from over. Tuesday,
Grapski was arraigned in court on four


felony charges and
including resisting
violence, battery on


one misdemeanor
an officer with
law enforcement


officers and
trespassing. All five of
the charges stem from
an Aug. 13 incident at
S the Alachua Police
Department (APD).
Grapski was not at
his arraignment on
Grapski Tuesday, but his
attorney, University of Florida law
professor Joseph Little, did file a notice


of limited appearance.
Both Little and Grapski were in
Tallahassee on Tuesday arguing for an
appeal on a case Grapski helped file
challenging Alachua's 2006 election
between Commissioner James Lewis
and candidate Lewis Irby. That case was
dismissed but Grapski and others are
appealing that decision.
Assistant State Attorney Geoffrey
Fleck filed the charges against Grapski.

Executive Editor
HIGH SPRINGS With two weeks before
High Springs' voters go to the polls and elect a
new city commissioner, residents listened
intently to the trio of commission candidates
during a forum held at the High Springs
Women's Club on Tuesday.
Candidates Bill Coughlin, Gene Levine, and
Dick Williams shared with voters their views on
how they would govern High Springs if elected
to the commission. Each candidate was given
the opportunity to make opening and closing


statements and also answer questions on a
variety of issues.
On the issue of police and fire services, all
three candidates said they were against those city
departments merging with Alachua County.
Williams believes the High Springs Fire and
Police departments are vital agencies for the
welfare of the community. He said he was
against the cuts both departments were facing
when the High Springs commission was
considering its budget for the new fiscal year.
Meanwhile, Coughlin wants'fire and police

Alachua may buy

ALACHUA Alachua
commissioners approved a
plan Monday that would
explore the possible purchase
of natural gas utility
infrastructure already in the
city.
Commissioners authorized
City Manager Clovis Watson,
Jr. and staff to hire a consultant
to evaluate the profitability of


$1 million to $3 million.
Natural gas lines were first
installed in Alachua in 1967 by
Gainesville Gas, a privately
owned company. Since that
time, the infrastructure has
been expanded and the
Gainesville-based gas
company was purchased by

Haunted house


among achua's


tricks this year


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter


ALACHUA Alachua's
Trick-or-Treat on Main Street
has grown to monstrous
proportions over the years.
With dozens of area businesses
handing out more treats than
tricks on Halloween night,
Main Street has quickly
become a popular destination
for youngsters veiled in
creative costumes.
Trick-or-Treat on Main
Street might be a bit more
haunting this year. Alachua's
Police Explorer Post and the
City of Alachua have teamed


up to open the doors of the
town's own haunted house.
Located in Alachua's old
police department building on
Main Street, the place may be
haunted, but is a far cry from a
house.
For the nominal fee of $1,
trick-or-treaters can enter the
halls of the abandoned police
department where those
accused of egregious crimes
once walked. The money
raised will fund the many
activities of Alachua's Police
Explorers.

Quality vehicle maintenance a


priority for City Boys Tire & Brake


SPOTLIGHT ON

SYOU
By DAN REID
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS City Boys Tire & Brake
owner Justin Ellison believes the true standard of
quality tire and repair service is how much a
consumer spends' on their vehicle over a period
of years.
"We don't care how much you spend in a day.
We care how much you spend in 20 years," he
said.
According to Ellison, superior products and
vehicle maintenance, along with personalized
customer service is why people have gone' to his
store for more than 15 years. City Boys offers a
wide range of services including brake,
transmission, and wheel maintenance as well as a
wide variety of tires.
Ellison, 36, is a native of New York, but

Ask Your Dentist b Dogl.
Oral pathologist


Q: What is an oral
pathologist?
A: Oral pathology is one
field of dental specialization.
An oral pathologist,
sometimes called and oral
maxillofacial pathologist,
specializes in the diagnosis of
dental .and facial cavity
diseases. For instance, if your
dentist encounters suspicious
tissue in your mouth during an
examination, the dentist may
remove a portion of the
tissue-a biopsy and send it
to an oral pathologist for
study. The pathologist will
determine whether the tissue
is, for example, cancerous or
infectious.


~Ij


The oral pathologist, like
other specialties, completes
the educational requirements
to earn the DDS degree. The
pathologist continues with a
three-year hospital internship.
While some oral pathologists
have private practices, many
work in hospitals, universities,
laboratories and other research
facilities. Each area of
specialty is overseen by its
own board. Each area requires
from two to four years post-
graduate training. Your dentist
can tell you more about the
areas of specialty and whether
you are a candidate for a
consultation with one of them.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 A5


The Day of the Lord


Is it possible that a believer in
Christ would not be accepted by God
on the judgment day? No.
Do we have a guarantee that we'll
be accepted? We do, and the
guarantee is based upon conditions
which we meet now. It is ridiculous to
put off commitment to -
Christ today, thinking that
you will work on beginning
your Christian life
tomorrow. This is the great
deception currently
rampant in American
Christianity-that this life
is meant for our enjoyment
and pleasure, and there will
be plenty of time for God in
the afterlife. Those who
base their security on the
Judgment day using this The Ven
kind of reasoning will be Leasureai
redson ing d All Saint
greatly disappointed. Church,
Clearly, the point of Saint A parish
Paul's first letter to the Christiar
Corinthians, chapter 1, Church
verses 4-8 is that this is the
moment to find eternal
security with God.
St. Paul gives thanks to God for
the saints in Corinth, not because they
had done such great things in building
up the Kingdom of God, nor because
they labored and toiled in an attempt
to earn a place in God's Kingdom. We
might thank God for those who seem
to be most instrumental in providing
support and service in the Church, but
St. Paul does not say this. The
emphasis in this verse is on what God
has done for them, i.e., He has given
them grace in Christ Jesus. St. Paul is
strongly reminding them that it is God
who has given them everything, and
they had become a church that was
very self-centered and proud of its


J

s
G
o
n E


gifts, its .accomplishments, and its
successful ministry. This one verse
stands out against the attitude that had
worked its way into the early
Corinthian Church. It refreshes them
in the basics of the theology of
Salvation-it is by grace alone that
they are heirs of God's
Kingdom.
St. Paul then tells
them that they were
.- given an abundance of
Small things that concern
the new life they have
I. i in communion with
God. Again, the
emphasis is on what
God has given to them.
The Greek verbs that
define the text are
ohn E mostly passive,
meaning that the saints
Anglican in Corinth are the
ainesville.
ainesville. recipients of God's
Episcopal action. They are like
the children who sit
around the Christmas
tree and receive the gifts
that are handed to them. It is God
who has initiated and given them, in
abundance, everything that they will
require, in regards to their salvation.
St. Paul includes the overflowing
grace evident in their ability to
understand and communicate the
Gospel (in speech and knowledge);
even this depth of Christian
knowledge that they were so proud of,
was given by God. It should also be
pointed out that the grace of God is
spoken of in the past tense, meaning
that they have had full access from the
beginning, to what God has for them
to get on with this Christian life. In
other words, you do not have to wait
until you reach some spiritual


milestone before God gives
something as a reward.
Well, this all sounds nice and
good, but where is the proof that God
has done this for them? St. Paul
explains that these promises can be
believed because they are already
experiencing the truth of God's Word
in their life. Christ has confirmed His
Word to the Corinthians-and to
every believer Christ continues to
confirm His Word. This is a mark of
holding to the Christian Faith, that
you have experienced the sincerity of
Christ's Word. It is God who
confirms His Word.
God has graciously given so much
to those who believe and He is faithful
to complete the work which He has
begun. This is the blessed assurance
that all servants of God have when
they stand before Him in Judgment,
that He, who has taken such pains to
lay a proper foundation and has
supplied for every need that might
arise, has an interest in seeing the final
product roll off the assembly line.
This is God's work and just as He did
on the seventh day of Creation, He
will look at what He has done and say,
"It is good. "
The only question that remains is,
"...do you have the assurance that
God has done all of this for you?" He
promises to confirm His Word, so
have you ever made a decision to
believe it? The Day of the Lord,
meaning the day of His revelation and
judgment, will only test whether you
had used this life, this day, this
moment to believe and serve God. If
you are unsure about your future,
today is the day of salvation. Trust
Him.

WASTEWATER:
Continued from page A

Flow records dating back from 2001

will be analyzed


In addition, the report will
address preliminary treatment,
secondary treatment, and
disinfection capabilities of an
expanded wastewater plant. The
plan will also look into
Newberry's scum, plant drain,
and plant service water internal
pumping stations.
Jones Edmunds will
provide the labor, materials,
and equipment for the study.
Once information is
collected, a review of the
final facilities plan will be
presented to the Newberry
City Commission. The
summary of the plan will
focus on the recommended
wastewater treatment plan
for the city.
According to a
preliminary project schedule
obtained from Jones
Edmunds, the plan's results
will be presented to
Commissioners by the end
of the year. The total cost of
the study is estimated at
$69,940, a portion of which


a state loan will help fund.
The proposed plan is a
follow-up from discussions
and workshops conducted
by the city over the last
couple of years.. Brent
Heath of Jones Edmunds
said the city's development
necessitated the need for a
wastewater facilities plan.
Newberry Mayor John
Glanzer anticipates
expansion of the wastewater
facility will begin in late
2008 or 2009. He is hopeful
construction will be
completed by 2011.
Another issue Newberry
is looking into is water
system capacity. On
Monday, Commissioners
approved a water system
capacity analysis report that
is required once a city
reaches 75-percent water
capacity. The report will
consist of field visits to
gather pump and storage
information, along with a
hydraulic system review

evaluating the city's
existing water well pumps,
chemical feed systems, and
storage facilities.
Flow records from 2001
to this year will be analyzed
to assist in calculating
maximum daily demands,
peak hour demands, and
annual average demands.
Newberry's planning
department is providing the
report of population growth

projections of water
capacity use.
According to Glanzer,
not all of the homes
projected to be built would
be able to obtain a permit
today due to the 75-percent
capacity limit. However,
the mayor doesn't anticipate
the problem happening since.
water capacity will
eventually increase over the
next decade.

magistrate process, one person is hired to review
all code violations and to make decisions on

reviewed code violations and determined how to
deal with them. Officials believed the board
process was inefficient and didn't deal with
violators in a timely manner.

moved to Florida at the age of
eight. He began his career in
the automotive business 2,1
years ago at a Ford dealership
in Cross City working part time
after school and on weekends.
During this period, Ellison met
his stepfather Pete Woodward,
who worked with him at the
dealership.
In 1991 Woodward accepted
a position at City Boys in High
Springs. Four years later owner
Kip Pierce sold the business to
him, and in 1997 Woodward
bought the City Boys' building
outright. After a few years of
ownership he brought along
Ellison to assist with the store's
daily operations.
Since he started at City
Boys, Ellison has assumed day-
to-day operations from his
stepfather. Even -with the
demands his business presents,
he still finds time with his wife


The new special magistrate method, however,
means property owners won't have extended
periods of time to cure deficiencies in meeting
codes. Officials expect the first special
magistrate session to occur later this year.

of 17 years, Susan, and their
two sons, Christopher and
James. During his spare time,
Ellison enjoys hunting,
horseback riding, and raising
horses at his Bell home.
Earlier in the decade Ellison
started a second City Boys
location, this time in Alachua.
He recently sold the store to
employee Eric Foulds, who
describes Ellison as someone
that's always. willing to lend a
helping hand.
"He's a great owner to work
with. Whatever you need he's
always there to help you," said
Foulds.
According to Ellison, High
Springs' population growth has
been a .boon for his store.
Although the. city has grown
over the years, the auto shop
owner feels High Springs has
maintained its small town
atmosphere.


Ellison said it's important
for City Boys to keep up with
the latest automotive
technology. With the changes
in technology, along with
increasing the speed limit on
the nation's highways,
consumers are now buying tires
that promote quality safety and
performance handling. Ellison
said 15- and 17-inch tires are
becoming popular, while
smaller 13-and 14-inch tires are
being phased from the market.
As technological changes
are continuing in the
automotive industry, Ellison
said having a business in an
area like High Springs still
demands the highest levels of
customer service 'from
employees.
"It's a small community,
and you have to treat people
right," said Ellison.

Today Staff Report
HIGH SPRINGS Organizers of Camp
Kulaqua's 3rd Annual Gala event to be held on
Monday, Nov. 5 want your help to make
children's dreams come true. This year's
themed event, "Autumn Dreams," will begin at

FORUM:
Continued from page Al


Voters had meet and greet with candidates


services fully equipped to meet the
needs of area citizens, along with
raising the salaries of police officers.
He said increasing police salaries
would help the police department
recruit new officers to the force.
Levine said he is in favor of increasing
police persoruiel within the
department.
Other questions asked included
issues on groundwater and growth.
Coughlin said water runoff and
stormwater control are important
issues in High Springs. He added that
residents need to determine the type of
growth and water systems they want in
the area. Both Coughlin and Williams
agree the city's comprehensive plan
needs to be updated in handling future
growth.
Williams, who is a retired


environmental specialist from the
Florida Department of Environmental
Protection, said he is familiar with
water issues and runoff. He said it's
important for High Springs to begin
dialog with the City of Alachua,
neighboring municipalities, and
Alachua County on water issues.
* Williams said he believes dialog with
other communities will help the city,
expand its thinking on environmental
concerns.
Levine told voters that obtaining
federal grants is the best way to fund
the city's water and sewer system. He
believes the current city commission is
working hard in its attempts for federal
funding.
Levine said change is inevitable in
High Springs and envisions a future
where land in the area will be fully


developed to accommodate growth.
Levine also said that the biggest
problem in dealing with change is
resistance, and hopes the city will look
forward in its thinking instead of
taking a backwards approach.
Coughlin, who is a former High
Springs commissioner and mayor, said
he left the commission four years ago
to spend more time with his family.
Since leaving his commission seat he
was appointed as a member of the
city's plan board. During his time on
the plan board, Coughlin said he
observed the commission governing in
the wrong direction and felt a need to
seek another term. Coughlin wants
commissioners to manage city
government on a more effective level,
and be stewards to the citizens of High
Springs.


Levine cited his business and
political experience as the right fit for
High Springs. He said his passion,
* belief, and vision to fight for the needs
of citizens are the motivating factors
for his campaign. Levine, who once
served as a commissioner in the small
town of Canton, Texas, outside of
Dallas, said it was his heart that asked
him to run for public office again
because he saw the opportunity to
make a positive impact in the
community.
During the course of his campaign,
Williams said he has visited five to ten
residents everyday talking to them on
their front porches or living rooms
about the issues facing High Springs.
He said one of the things he's learned
from talking to voters is that they feel
their concerns are being ignored by the


city commission. As commissioner,
Williams said it will be his priority to
.bring the government back to the
people of High Springs and fight for
their concerns.
Before the forum, voters had the
opportunity to meet each of the
candidates outside of the Women's
Club, while enjoying. refreshments.
Barbara Miller, who served as the
moderator for the debate, said one of
the purposes of the event was to
promote civic participation among
citizens.
"It's another way to bring citizens and
government together," said Miller.

Halloween safety


October is passing by quickly,
hastening the evening that Alachua
County will be overrun by ghosts,
goblins, and other assorted ghoulish
things searching for candy. Here are
some quick tips for homeowners to
goblin-proof their residences before
Halloween. Make sure your yard is
clear of such things as ladders,
hoses, dog leashes, and flower pots
that could trip trick-or-treaters. Put
up your pets that might be
*OOS*OOO*O*O*OSOEO


frightened by strange children in
costume. Use battery-poweredjack-
o-lantems instead of candles. If you
do use candles, please place the
pumpkin well away from where
trick-or-treaters will be walking or
standing. Make sure paper or cloth
yard decorations won't be blown
into a flaming candle.
Ifyouhave children who will be
trick-or-treating, make sure they eat
dinner before setting out. Ideally,
young children of any age should be
OOOO OO OOOO


accompanied by an adult If your
children do go on their own, be sure
they wear a watch that can be read in
the dark. Have older children carry a
cell phone and know how to reach
you and when to be home. Make
sure your kids follow simple
Halloween guidelines.
Cany a flashlight Walk, don't
run. Stay on the sidewalk Obey
traffic laws. Stay in familiar
neighborhoods. Don't cut across
yards or driveways. Make sure you
OOOO OOO ,OOOOOOOO0


can walk without tripping over your
costume. Avoid wearing masks; use
face paint instead. Carry only
flexible knives, swords or other
props. If there is no sidewalk, walk
on the left side of the road, facing
traffic. You should only approach
houses that are lit Wear reflective
markings or tape. Stay away from
strange animals to avoid being
bitten. For these and other tips on

GRAPSKI: Att4
Continued from page A 1

Robert Jernigan and Officers
Chris Latimer and Patrick Barcia.
Although Grapski and Little
did not attend the arraignment, the
defense did file a "Motion for
Statement of Particulars," in
which they request a more
detailed accounting of the
allegations.
"The information as filed
pleads bare statutory language
and does not plead a factual
predicate for the charges
sufficient to enable the defendant
to prepare a defense," the motion
filed by Little reads.
Addressing each of the counts,
Little essentially calls for details
saying none of the charges
provide enough circumstantial
information to explain why, when
or how the events occurred.
Grapski was arrested on Aug.
13 after he apparently went to
APD seeking information on a
closed case.


orney said Grapski needs more information for defense


"I advised [Grapski] my report
had all of the information in it and
the case was closed and I wasn't
going to answer anymore
questions," Police Chief Robert
Jernigan wrote in his report
following the incident.
Jemigan said he then asked
Grapski to leave, but Grapski
refused.
"I went into APD and locked
the door.
"[Grapski] then banged on the
door."
Reportedly after asking
Grapski to leave a second time,
Jernigan informed the political
activist that he would be arrested
for trespassing. Jernigan said he
warned Grapski again before
placing him under arrest.
Grapski resisted arrest by
kicking Jemigan, the report states.
Officer Patrick Barcia was
reportedly then head butted on the
chin by Grapski while trying to


assist Jernigan with the arrest. A
third officer, Chris Latimer, tried
to open an interior door when he
was kicked by Grapski, causing
injury to the officer's left middle
finger according to Jemigan.
The report indicates that
several citizens where in the
lobby.of the police department at
the time of the incident.
Grapski was then taken to the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office
(ACSO) Department of the Jail
(DOJ).
While in jail, Grapski was
charged by ACSO jail officials
with more allegations of violence
when he refused to be strip
searched. Following those
charges, Grapski ultimately ended
up with a bond of $60,000 before
he could be released.
The bond was later reduced to
just $1,500 following a hunger
strike during his 11-day stay in
the jail.


State Attorney's Office
Spokesperson Spencer Mann said
in an August interview, "One of
the factors in [Grapski's] case was
the extreme medical-related costs
while in the care, custody and
control of the county."
Mann said he could not
answer specific questions about
medical costs associated with
Grapski, due to medical privacy
laws.
"I can say that one of'the
factors in the reductions was the
continually spiraling medical
costs the County would be
incurring," Mann said.
The conditions of Grapski's
release were that he must continue
outpatient mental health
medication and treatment and
avoid contact with those he was
charged with battering. He also
may not go to Alachua City Hall
or Police Department.

NATURAL GAS: Current taxes and fees bring in about $11K annually
Continued from page AI Current taxes and fees bring in about $110K annually


(GRU) in 1990. Included with
GRU's purchase was the natural
gas infrastructure in Alachua.
A 10-year franchise
agreement approved in October
1997 between GRU and the
City of Alachua allowed GRU
to continue providing natural
gas service to Alachua
customers. Under that
agreement, GRU is required to
charge Alachua residents the
same rate as Gainesville
residents. GRU also collects a
six-percent franchise fee and a


10-percent utility tax on natural
gas which goes to the City of
Alachua.
With the franchise
agreement between the city and
GRU set to expire on Nov. 10,
2007, Alachua is faced with two
options. The agreement calls
for extension or renewal under
the existing terms, or the City
has the optionrof purchasing the
utility.
Watson described the
possibility of buying the utility
saying, "We would be running a

gas company essentially."
Vice Mayor Bonnie Burgess
saw Alachua's positioning as
strong.
"If we do continue on with
the services as it is, we do still
have the option to purchase,"
Burgess said.
Natural gas lines in Alachua
currently serve about 820
residential and 40 commercial
customers including the Turkey
Creek subdivision, Santa Fe
Station, Progress Corporate
Park, area schools and
restaurants.
Mayor Gib Coerper noted
that GRU only provides natural
gas service to portions of the


city's core downtown area.
The Commission's move
Monday doesn't authorize the
purchase of the natural gas
infrastructure, but it does allow
for a committee and a consultant
to review the possibility. Under
the current agreement in which
GRU operates and owns the
utility, Alachua realizes about
$110,000 annually resulting
from the franchise fees and
taxes.
Commissioner Jean
Calderwood probed further into
the scope the evaluation.
"This is a massive
undertaking," Calderwood said.
She referenced recent


executive orders by Florida-
Governor Charlie Crist related
to the environment.-
Calderwood said the city
would be doing a disservice if it
did not consider the
environmental impacts of
natural gas as compared to
electricity.
Although $75,000 has been
budgeted for the natural. gas
utility acquisition study, Public
Services Director Mike New
said not all of the funding would
go toward a hired consultant.
Discussion on Monday
about the future of the natural
gas utility in Alachua seemed to.
generate more questions than


answers. Watson said the study
would go a long way in
providing the needed answers.
"That is why I want to
evaluate the feasibility ... of
whether we will, can or should
purchase the infrastructure for
gas," he said.
A final report and possible
recommendations to purchase
the natural gas utility is likely
several months away. Among
the evaluations will be the age
and value of the infrastructure,
the cost of maintaining it and
the profitability of a natural gas
utility.

Raiders back in the championship


* Santa Fe defeats
Ridgeview in
district semifinals
By ADAM BOUKARI
Today Sports Writer
MACCLENNY When it
comes to postseason play,
Michele Faulk and the Santa Fe
High. School volleyball
program have become regulars.
The Raiders clinched a playoff
berth once again on Tuesday
night in the semifinals of the
Class 4A, District-3 tournament


at Baker County High School.
Santa Fe, the second seeded
team in the tournament,
defeated Orange Park
Ridgeview in straight games,
25-18, 25-14, 25-18.
"It was important to come out
the way we did and make a
statement," said Faulk. "We
didn't expend too much energy
and wear ourselves out for the
championship game."
Santa Fe (16-10, 4-1) started
junior setter Sydney Wilkerson
against the Panthers.
Wilkerson, who started last year


at that position for Santa Fe, has
seen limited time this season
behind senior Kelsi New.
Wilkerson played the entire
match for the Raiders.
"We made a setter change
tonight;" simply stated Faulk
when asked about the change.
"Sydney Wilkerson stepped up
her game. She stepped in when
we needed her to tonight."
The Raiders took early
control of the first game with a

Syuu gut

Cam in that

) hot rod?


Mikey is starting to wonder if
Florida Gators coach Urban
Meyer has forgotten the very
same phenomena he created in
college football last year.
Just like in the 90's when Steve
Spurrier changed the grind it out
on the ground Southeastern
Conference into a pass-happy
league, Meyer unknowingly
revolutionized college football
last season
with his
utilization
of Tim
Tebow
coming in .
on certain
situations
in place of
Chris Leak.
N o w a MIKE DAROZA
days just Today Sports Columnist
one whole
year later), it's difficult to find a
team that doesn't employ a
version of this component in their
offense.
Heck, some teams go so far as
naming this part of their offense
their "Tebow" package.
And, it's pretty much all thanks
to Meyer.
So then, can anyone explain to
Mikey why one of the few teams
that don't have this "package" n
their arsenal is the very same one
that started it all?
Obviously, Tebow is a rising
star.
Tebow has already rushed for
578 yards and f0 touchdowns this
season.
To put that into perspective,
Tebow (only a sophomore QB, by
the way) has rushed for more
yards this season than five entire
Division-I schools (Baylor, Duke,
Notre.Dame, San Jose State and

TDs are more than 40 individual

No question about it, he's in an
untouchable class all his own.
But, that's not Mikey's point.
My point is, I don't care how
legitimate a Heisman Trophy

do so much for the Gators if he's

With all that said, one question
begs to be answered.
- Why isn't Florida's backup
quarterback, Cam Newton, being
inserted into the game plan like
.Tebow was last year?
Mikey's certainly no football
coach, and basically has no right
to question a national
championship caliber coach like
Meyer, but wouldn't letting
Newton take some snaps bring an
entirely new wrinkle into the


Gators' offense?
Newton is what, 6-foot-6 and
240-plus pounds?
And, I believe the kid can throw
too;
Just how difficult could
Florida's offense be to defend if
they had two big, strong, running
quarterbacks who could throw?
On the contrary, the real
question could ultimately end up
being: "Just how difficult would it
be to 'defend Florida's offense if
Newton has to be the starting
quarterback because an injury

While Captain Todd sat working at his desk, Emily showed
Sam around the small pilothouse. She invited him to turn the
ship's wheel. San- was very friendly and very talkative. Emily
thought he was funny. He made her laugh.
When Captain Todd finished his paperwork, they locked the
pilothouse arid climbed. down to the deck. Sam said good-bye
and promised to be back in the morning with his brother for
their trip to St. Louis.
That night, Mrs. Todd packed clean shirts for her hust,,,nd to
take on his journey. Captain Todd would be gone for several
days. Emily wanted to be with him as much as she could, so
she stayed up as late as her mother would allow.
Early the next morning, Emily and her mother walked down
to the levee to say good-bye. When they arrived at the boat,
Captain Todd came to greet them. He kissed Emily and her
tearful mother. Mrs. Todd always cried into her ha:-idiikerchiefi
when her husband left.
As the boat moved out into the river, Captain Todd blew his
'vhisjle and waved from the pilothouse. Emily waved back to
her father and to Sam, who was standing on the lower deck.
Emily's friends, John and Rose, were waiting when she and her
mother arrived back at home. The three children hoped to go
exploring on the river bluffs. Emily asked her mother if she could
go with her friends. Mrs. Todd said Emily could go, but she
warned all three children to be careful. They promised to be
back by noon.
Quickly, the children raced off to the rugged bluffs where all the
children in the village loved to play. The bluffs had great rocks to
climb over and little caves where kids could hide from each other.
No other children were on the bluffs when Emily and her friends
arrived. Since they were alone, they decided to just explore together.
Soon they found a large cave. Just inside, John found a torch
and flints to light it. Emily and Rose said the cave was too big for
exploring, but John lit the torch and went inside anyway. Although
they were afraid, the girls followed John into the cave.
Emily and Rose held hands as they followed John. Emily had never
been so far inside a cave. John used the torch to mark a trail on
the walls so they could find their way back through all, the twists
and turns. Finally, the children decided they had gone deep

It's been a long time since
Ricky Nattiel played his prep
career for the Newberry Panthers.
And, although he's been back
various times as an assistant
coach, observer or spectator -
Friday night will be Nattielfs first-
ever trip to Newberry High's
campus as an opponent.
When former Florida football
teammate Kerwin Bell stepped
down as the coach of Ocala
Trinity Catholic last year for the
job at Jacksonville University,
Nattiel inherited a team that had
won 27 out of its last 28 and
averaged better than 48 points per
game in 2005 and 2006, including
a Class 2B championship in '05
and a runner-up finish in '06.
Lucky him, right?
Wrong.
That team graduated a slew of
stars, including Gators backup
quarterback Johnny Brantley, last
year's Gatorade National Player
of the Year.
One could say there isn't much
carry over from the last two years.
With the exception of one
thing, that is.
And that is likely the two
humiliating wins they enjoyed
over Newberry, and the Panthers'
desire to seek revenge this season,
regardless of the fact that OTC's
head coach is one of the most
beloved players in Newberry
history.
The Celtics have outscored the
Panthers 113-13 in the last two
meetings.
Obviously, anything can
happen, but by most sane
estimations, the Panthers should
have little trouble getting long
overdue payback.
Trinity Catholic kicked the
season off with a rocky start,
dropping the opener, 10-0, to
Tampa Catholic.
But, the Celtics rebounded to
win four straight.
However, OTC is only 1-2
since then, with losses to Union
County and Mainland somewhat
soothed by a win'over hapless
Chiefland in their last outing.
Meanwhile, Newberry couldn't
look stronger not much stronger
anyway sitting pretty at 7-0, and
averaging better than 38 points a
game (44.2 in their last five
games) led by one of the best
runningbacks in the state in
Antwan Ivey.
But, lost in most of the hoopla
surrounding the Panthers' success
this season- outside ofNewberry,
that is is the play of their
defense.
The Panther D has given up
only 31 total points in seven
games, includinglO points in the
last five games and just a mere
three points in the last 16 quarters.
Let's see, add the 10 to the
three, carry the one
and...and...and well, it equals
trouble for the Celtics, that's what
it equals.
The good news is, Ricky will
see lots of friendly faces on Friday
night, and most of them will be
accompanied by hugs and well
wishes.
The bad news, however, is that
Mikey's pretty sure none of them
will be wearing Newberry
uniforms.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007 B3


PANTHERS:
Continued from page B1
year, the defense has also pitched
three shutouts.
All-state running back Antwan
"Kelo" Ivey leads a deep and
experienced Panthers team with
1,151 rushing yards and 19
touchdowns. The senior, who has
received interest from Wofford,
Middle Tennessee, Florida
International, Florida A&M,
Bethune-Cookman and
Campbell, also ran for over 1,000
yards as junior (1,820 yards).
With each victory, head coach
Tommy Keeler's Panthers have
inched closer to their goal of
playing in the Class 2B state
championship game on
December 8th at the Citrus Bowl
in Orlando, which they talked
about in the preseason. But
Newberry, which is off to its best
start since the 2001 playoff club
was 5-0, faces arguably its biggest
test of the season on Friday. Ocala
Trinity Catholic (5-3) comes to
Panther Stadium for a critical
District 4-2B game at 7:30 p.m.
The Celtics, who won the Class
2B state title in 2005 and were
state runner ups last season, are
guided by new head coach Ricky
Nattiel. A former Panthers
standout, Nattiel played wide
receiver for the University of
Florida before playing in two
Super Bowls during his six-year
NFL career with the Denver
Broncos.
A win by Newberry would
keep its special season in perfect
form and bring this club within
two wins of becoming the first
team since the 1987 squad to post
an unblemished 10-0 regular-
season record. On top ofthat, with
talk of playing for a state title the
Panthers could also accomplish
something only the 1992 team
did.
Terrell Bass, who has spent the
last 32 years as a coach and
Athletic Director at Newberry
before retiring this past summer,
was the head football coach of
undefeated regular-season teams
in 1983 and 1987 and an assistant
coach for the 1992 Class 2A
runner-up group that went 12-2.
Although Bass has not seen
Newberry play yet this season, he
has been following the Panthers'
exceptional year. He also said he
was around the players (who are


on this year's team) all of last year.
With what he recalls from 15
seasons ago, he sees some
similarities and differences and
also offers the ingredients he
believes is needed to cook up a
special season.
"The biggest similarity in those
two ball clubs is depth, they both
have depth. They (the 1992 team)
might have played two or three
kids on both sides of the ball,"
said Bass, who was Newberry's
head football coach from 1979-
89. "They both also have great
team speed. I just remember they
(the 1992 team) had a lot of depth
and a lot of team speed and a lot
of speed on defense."
Bass said that versatile running
back Aundrae Hamilton (1993
and 1994 Class 2A state champ in
the 400-meter dash and 1994 state
champ in the 200-meter dash)
was the go-to guy for the 1992
Panthers, much like Ivey is for the
2007 version. He also said
Maurice Bell quarterbacked that
1992 club and went onto play at
South Carolina State.
"They threw the ball a lot more,
they played mostly three wide
receivers and I think the 1992
team might have been a little bit
bigger," Bass said. "I do know
they scored a bunch of points like
Newberry is doing this year.
"But the one biggest difference
is the 1992 club didn't have the
kicker that Newberry has now
(Phillip Warner)," Bass said.
"That was the one glaring
difference."
According to Bass that 1992
team missed an extra point
.attempt which proved to be the
difference in the 14-13 loss to
Frostproof in the championship
game which was played-at Florida
Field.
"The first thing I always
thought (that was needed to have


a special year) was having a good
coaching staff and I think Tommy
and his staff are good friends,"
Bass said. "The second thing in
the years we were real good, we
were able to keep from having
key players injured in big games.
We were always fortunate that
when we had key injures, it felt
like it happened when we didn't
play a strong opponent or district
opponent. I think he has a good
chance (of playing for a state title)
as he'll have if he keeps
everybody healthy.
"The third key is that there is no
jealously and the kids are team
players, they don't care about
points," said Bass, who added that
when he coached Nattiel and
fellow standout Keith Ross that
all they cared about was if they
won. "If you can do those three
things you have a chance to do'
something special every year, but
it is hard to do."
Bass also said that he thinks
Newberry has a special group of
players on this year's team and
also had an idea that Keeler would
have success with the Panthers.
"I just thought Tommy was a
good fit for what we were needing
and I think he has been fortunate
this year to have a good group of
senior kids, they paid their dues
like all the rest of them," said
Bass, who was the Athletic
Director when Keeler was hired
in the spring of 2005. "After I got
to know Tommy and his
philosophy and how much he
helps kids, there was no doubt in
my mind that he was going to
build a program like this. I really
think he'll be competitive as long
as he stays at Newberry."
Stay tuned for how special the
Panthers' season turns out to be.

CROSS COUNTRY:
Continued from page B1

rounded out Santa Fe's top five
with a 96th place finish in a
time of 21:43.
"That gap hurt in terms of
numbers," said the coach. "But
there were good times, but it
was a big gap."
Rufus White, a senior, was
sixth for the Raiders and 101st
overall with a time of 21:54,
with fellow senior Thomas
Jones turning in a time of 22:29,
while sophomore Ty Carey
posted a personal-best time of
23:05 to place eighth for Santa
Fe. Only the top five runners for
each team score points.
Turner said that he likes the
challenging course at Santa Fe
Community College, and said
he wanted to use that race to
determine who his top seven
runners will be heading into the
-District 3-2A meet scheduled
for Nov. 1st.
"Drew, Jay and the top five
are where they should be and
Thomas Edgemon is
improving," Turner said. "If I
can get four of my top five guys
in the 20's we'll be alright at
districts."
The coach was especially
pleased with how his top two
runners performed.


"I was happy with the way he
(Burgett) ran and he was happy
too," said Turner, who is in his
21st year as Santa Fe's head
cross county and track and field
coach. "Jay was sick, but now
he is feeling better and he is
pretty consistent right now. I
liked the way he ran, too."
Phillip Wise of Buchholz
won the boys race in a time of
16:42 and also led the host
Bobcats to the overall team title
as well.
On the girls side, Rebecca
Tenbroeck finished first for
Santa Fe and 89th overall out of
the 120-runner field with a time
of 27:01. Senior Aimee Graeber
was 93rd with a time of 27:10,
with fellow senior Corinne
Larsen placing 96th and
crossing the finish line in a time
of 27:28. Lizzi Condo, also a
senior, was fourth for the
.Raiders with a time of 30:50.
Because five runners are
needed for team scoring, Santa
Fe was not included in the final
team standings.
"This was the first time
Rebecca has finished first on
the team," Turner said. "All
three of them ran together as a
pack (Tenbroeck, Graber and
Larsen). But in the last 200
yards Rebecca just sprinted
away from them. I was a little

offensive yards, 358 came in
the first half.
An 81-yard touchdown catch
and run opened the game for
North Marion for a seven point
lead just 13 seconds into the
first quarter. After the Raider
offense moved the ball from
deep inside its own territory and
earned two first downs, a
fumble turned the ball back
over to the home team.
Another offensive play -
another touchdown for the
Colts, this time a 26-yard
scamper by Albert Gary. The
North Marion defense forced a
three and out of the Raider
offense and put Gary and the
Colts back on the field. One
play is all Gary needed again,
this time'bolting 75 yards down


the left sideline for his team's
third score of the contest.
North Marion would score
another four times in the first
half to jump out to a dominating
49-0 halftime lead. Raider
turnovers and poor defense by
the visitors helped the Colts to
their shutout lead. Santa Fe (2-
6, 0-3) had an opportunity to
come away with points in the
opening half, knocking on
North Marion's door thanks to a
41-yard run by senior running
back Deonte Merricks.
However, a turnover three plays
later cut the drive short.
North Marion totaled just
seven plays on offense in the
second half thanks to special
teams and a running clock due
to the mercy rule.
The Raiders finally cracked
the scoreboard with an eight-
play, 59-yard touchdown drive


surprised."
Turner said that the tryouts
for the Santa Fe girls soccer
team that Larsen, Graeber and
Condo attended during the
week might have affected how
they ran this past race.

"Their times weren't close to
what they ran the previous
week, they had a little setback
this week," said Turner. "I knew
that soccer tryouts might affect
them. I told them they needed to
make a commitment. I think it
might have affected the a little
bit."
Jacksonville Bishop Kenny's
top runner won the girls race as
the Crusaders also finished first
in the team standings.
Santa Fe is off this weekend
as they will start to prepare for
next Thursday's district meet at
McKethan Lake hosted by
Brooksville Hernando. The
girls race is slated to start at 5
p.m. with the boys raced
scheduled to get under way at
5:30 p.m.
"I hope we can get ready and
have a good district meet,"
Turner said.
SThe coach said that the top 15
individual runners and either
the top six or eight teams
advance to the regional meet.

that was capped by a nine yard
touchdown run by senior Will
Scaff. Justin White, who filled
in for an ill Collin Mixon,
converted on the extra points
for the Raiders' only points in
the game, trailing 49-7 with
6:20 remaining in the third
quarter.
The celebratory'moment for
Santa Fe was short-lived as
Gary received a lateral for a 70-
yard touchdown return on the
ensuing kickoff. Santa Fe was
forced to punt the ball on its
next drive and White booted a
punt 49 yards from deep in his
own territory. The Colts scored
another touchdown on the
possession for the final margin.
"They didn't do anything that
we hadn't seen," admitted
Brooks. 'We had a nice long
run by Debnte and then on the
next play we turn it over. That
is a microcosm of our season.
We do something great and then
we do something wrong."
Merricks led Santa Fe's
offensive attacks with 119 yards
on 13 carries, an average of 9.2
yards a touch. The senior
tailback was responsible for 70-
percent of Santa Fe's offensive
yards for the game. The visitors
recorded 23 passing yards on
five completions and 149
ground yards on 34 rushes.
Santa Fe has a bye week this
Friday and will play next on
Thursday, Nov. 1 in its final
home game against Williston.
The Red Devils hold a record of
3-4 and are 1-1 in Class 3A,
District-5 play.
"I think we need this week
off," said Brooks. "It gives us
an opportunity to take care of
some bumps and bruises and
prepare for Williston."

hitting error. However,
Ridgeview would take its first
lead of the contest 8-7 and
continued its 5-0 run to take a
10-7 advantage off a Raider
hitting error. Santa Fe
reclaimed the lead off a Chelsea
Pearl kill, followed by an
Ashley Rosenboom kill and
capped by a Pearl ace, 12-11.
But, it was Santa Fe's 6-0 run
sparked by the serving of junior
Bryce Miller that helped seal
the opening game. That spurt,
in which senior Leah Leventhal
recorded two blocks and a kill,
put the Raiders ahead 21-15. A
Rosenboom kill ended the first
game.
"At the beginning things
weren't clicking," explained
Faulk. "But Sydney settled in
and started running the offense
and it started flowing better."
Things especially flowed
better in the second game for
Santa Fe. After a back and forth
game in the early going, the
Raiders broke free and took a
19-12 advantage thanks to a
Leventhal kill. That was part of
a 5-0 service run fueled by
server Cynthia Smith.
Leventhal then went on a
service run of her own to give
her team a double-digit, 24-13
lead. Leventhal ended the game
on a back row kill, one of her
game-high 14 kills to go along
with six blocks, four aces and
eight digs.
It was Leventhal who once
again fueled the Raiders in the
final game. Behind her serving,
Santa Fe jumped out to a 9-6
lead capped with a Rosenboom

put her team ahead 15-12.
Santa Fe's Tori Lastinger also
helped her team out with a
service run that pushed the
Raider lead, 19-13.
The Raiders held a 23-14
lead, but were unable to stop the
Panthers on four straight points
until Rosenboom recorded a kill
to set up match point. Pearl
served up an ace for the match-

"Stephanie Moser had an
incredible game. She really

Moser led her team in digs

Rosenboom collected seven

recorded six kills, six blocks, a

added a pair of assists and digs,

would start at the setter position
for the district championship
game that takes place tonight.
"We'll see, we've got

going to be a battle," the coach
said.
Santa Fe will face
Middleburg tonight at 7 p.m. at
Baker County High School for
the district championship.
Middleburg, which beat Baker
County Tuesday night in the
semifinals, is the only district
opponent to beat the Raiders
this season just two weeks
ago.
"You can't rest on past
laurels," admitted Faulk whose
team has won three consecutive
district titles. "You have to
bring your 'A' game and the last
time we played [Middleburg]
they had aggressive serving.
We need to go right back at
them strong and take it to
them."

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2007


NEWDERRY:
Continued from page B1
completed her first year with
the Panthers. "We never found a
consistency not as individual
players, not as an individual
coach or as a team and that's
obviously why we ended up
having the losing record that
we've had."
Tuesday afternoon's loss to
the Indians (10-7) was
Newberry's 52nd 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 now suffered through
winless seasons, in 2003, 2006
and this season.
In the opening game,
Chiefland's Brittany Arrington
collected five of her 10 service
points for the match as the
third-seeded Indians jumped
out.to a 6-1 lead. Amye Grieves
added three service points
moving Chiefland's lead to 16-
5, before Jessica Steed picked
up four service points as the
Indians took a commanding 23-
8 advantage. A short time later,
Grieves drilled one of her eight
kills to clinch the opening game
for Chiefland.
Newberry (0-16), seeded last
out of the six teams in the
tournament, stayed close with
the Indians in the second game,
not trailing by more than five-
points midway through the
game. But Arrington's four
service points gave Chiefland
some breathing room at 19-10.
From that point the Panthers
actually outscored the Indians
9-6 and tried to make things
interesting down the stretch but
couldn't get over the hump.
In the third and eventual final
game, Newberry started off
looking like a team that was

CHECK US

THE WEB

interested in forcing the match
to a fourth game. Three service
points from Stephanie Hardy
helped give Newberry a 4-0
edge and a short time later the
Panthers still led 7-5. That was
until Lauren Sutton took over
for Chiefland. She reeled off 10
straight service points to fuel
the Indians' 11-0 run, which
turned a two-point deficit into a
comfortable 16-7 lead. Shellie
Fisher followed with four
service points extending
Chiefland's lead to 21-9 before
a Grieves kill and an ace from
Steed sealed the game and the
match.
"We were a different team
when we came out and started
the third game," Bisaccia said.
"That's part of our problem'we
only have the stamina to go
about five or six points and
somewhere along the line we'll
have a mental break down."
For the Indians, who won all
three meetings with the
Panthers this season, Sutton led
the way with 13 service points
and five kills, with Grieves
chipping in eight kills in the
win. Cassie Labat added four
kills and three service,points
with Steed ending with six
service points for the Indians.
Hardy led Newberry with six
service points, including a pair
of aces and fired one kill in the
season-ending loss for the
Panthers, who have not
advanced to the regional
playoffs since 1982. Lavarsha
Nattiel ended with eight digs,
while Anna Thrasher followed
with seven digs for Newberry.
"Mentally and physically this
season was extremely straining
for all of us," said Bisaccia,
who had never coached
volleyball prior to this season.
"I'm not used to losing like this
in any sport I've ever played.
I'm a competitor and I don't
like to lose and I certainly don't
like to go through some of the
things I've gone through with
this team and then not have
anything to show for it."
But the losing mentality and
other off the court issues also
made it tough for Bisaccia and
the Panthers' program this fall.
"Unfortunately I had to stay


consistent with disciplinary
things that made it difficult to
form the team chemistry. It's
something that Newberry has
had a problem with so we had to
deal with it," said Bisaccia, who
is also the Panthers softball
coach. "To be honest, I think
there are a small handful of
them (the players) who really
took this seriously, it meant
something to them like it meant
something to me. Unfortunately
the heart wasn't in it 100-
percent throughout every single
member of the team."
The desire and effort of other
players on the team is
something that senior Monique
Williams has also identified as a
problem.
"Part of the problem is that
most of the people that play
volleyball only play it because
they are getting ready for
another sport. They don't play it
because they absolutely love
the game," said Williams, one
of three seniors on this year's
club. "All four years have been
frustrating, there has been a
lack of people willing to give it
their all."
Thrasher and Erin Czerenda
are the other two seniors who
are expected to graduate in the
spring, with Nattiel appearing
to be the lone senior on next
year's squad. As for next
season, Bisaccia is optimistic
but has not really focused on
looking ahead, especially since
she will be coaching softball in
the spring.
"It was well worth it because
in the midst of the sport we
were playing I was able to help
some of these girls learn what a
team is and help some, of them
in their personal lives," said the
coach. "We'll be better next
year and I'm going to be a
better coach because of this
season for sure.
"I'm just trying to take it one
day at a time right now with it
being my first year teaching anl
my first year coaching two
sports," Bisaccia said. "I
haven't for a second really
thought about next year yet."
