TALLAHASSEE Nearly
18 months after former
Alachua resident Eileen
McCoy and others filed a
lawsuit challenging a 2006
City of Alachua election, the
case is over. Florida's First

Judge Robert E;. Roundtree's


opinion dismissing the case in
January.
The challenge sought to
invalidate or overturn the
results, of the 2006 election
between incumbent
Commissioner James Lewis
and candidate Lewis Irby.
Incumbent James Lewis was
certified as the winner by a
razor thin 18-vote margin.

Youngsters may never have been so excited to go to school after
hours than last Thursday during Irby Elementary School's Fall
Festival. Bustling with the excitement of hayrides and fun games for
all, the school transitioned from academics by day to carnival by
night. Youngsters filled the evening participating in a variety of
activities including tossing bean bags, stringing beaded jewelry,
searching for buried treasure, fishing for prizes and much more.

Florida lawmakers
finalized legislation Tuesday
that would give voters the
opportunity on a January 29
ballot to approve an expansion
to the homestead exeniption.
If passed by voters, the bill
would allow homeowners to
receive a minimum property
tax exemption of $50,000 on
their home's value or $100,000
for low-income seniors.
If voters approve the bill,
as of January 1, 2008, an
additional $12 billion in
property tax cuts would be
added to the $15 billion in


property tax cuts already
passed in June.
The additional $25,000
exemption would be
applicable for the $50,000-
$75,000 value of homes.
State Representative
Debbie Boyd said she was
disappointed in the process
which led to the adoption of
the final exemption proposal,
saying, "There was no 'good'
vote on this bill.
"Last week I voted with
107 members in the House on
a bipartisan tax reform
package.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 01, 2007 AJ


LOWE'S:
Continued from page A 1


Company officials expecting store opening in early 2009


said she feared the chain warehouse company
would economically harm local hardware
businesses in Alachua.
Harold Adleman, another local resident, agreed
with Hinsdale.
"You're going to be coming in and I think you're
going to be stepping on a lot of toes," Adleman said.
Seemingly listening intently at the meeting was
Wayne Tanner, owner ofAlachua Farm and Lunmber
located on the south end of Alachua's Main Street.
Tanner's business, along with a local Ace Hardware
store, was pointed out by Hinsdale as local
companies likely to suffer if Lowe's builds in
Alachua.
Strcula, however, said there have been several
instances in which smaller hardware stores have
opened and succeeded elsewhere following a Lowe's
opening. Adleman countered saying those were
likely larger communities that could sustain more
businesses.
Zoning for the site is already in place to allow for
the home improvement giant, but under the City's
Land Development Regulations (LDRs), the
company is required to conduct a market and impact
study because the proposed store would exceed
80,000 square feet. That process is currently
underway by Florida State University's Dr. Greg
Smersh.
Environmental Impact
Strcula said landscaping concerns for the large


commercial site were addressed in a recent meeting
with City ofAlachua officials. Among the changes
made to Lowe's plans for the Alachua site was the
inclusion of additional trees to buffer the store from
adjacent homes currently under construction in the
Baywood subdivision.
Landscaped islands within the parking lot would
be oversized as required by city ordinance he said.
An outside intercom system typically used at Lowe's
stores was also removed from the drawing board,
Strcula said, noting that City officials feared it would
break noise ordinance guidelines.
Lowe's stores are generally open from 6 a.m.
until 9 or 10 p.m. Trucks would not unload
merchandise outside of business hours Strcula noted.
Lowe's officials said the parking lot may be
required to have as many as 550 parking spaces
based on the size of the store according to city
regulations. But Strcula said the company hopes to
have that number reduced to 507.
Storage of fertilizers and other chemicals would
be kept under cover to prevent runoff into an onsite
retention basin company officials said. Runoff from
the parking lot, however, would be directed to an
engineered retention basin according to Strcula.
Still, he added that testing of the site shows that
runoff which would flow into the retention basin
would not impact nearby Mill Creek. The Suwannee
River Water Management District (SRWMD)
oversees permitting of retention basins to ensure that
they protect the environment.


Employment Impact
Concerned about careers with
Lowe's, Pastor Natron Curtis of
Crusaders for Christ Ministries
asked officials if the company hired
people who needed second chances.
Curtis said there are many people in
the community who either need
training for jobs or have a criminal
background and need a second
chance.
Company officials said training
is something Lowe's does for its
employees, but they didn't give a
firm answer on hiring people with
criminal records. Officials did
comment that Lowe's would work
with local leaders to develop a plan
for hiring from the community.

LAWSUIT:
Continued from page A l


$3,500 judgment for court costs against plaintiffs still under appeal


The 'ruling came quickly
considering attorneys for both sides
filed oral arguments just two days
prior. And the ruling was brief,
stating only, "Per Curiam.
Affirmed," meaning they agreed
with the lower court's ruling.
The three-judge panel offeredno
explanation for their ruling and no
opinion.
Clearly pleased with the ruling,
Robert Rush, who defended the City
of Alachua in the case said, "This
ruling has come down in record
time."
Rush said he has never been
involved with the appeal of a case in
which a determination was made
within just two days after arguments
were given to the court.
The case does seem to have
reached its end without any further
appeals available.
Had the court written a more
detailed opinion, it might have left
the door open to further appeals.
University of Florida Professor
Joseph Little, who represented the
plaintiffs essentially agreed.
"We have reached the end of the
road in this case," said Little.
"If we had the opportunity to


make further appeals, I would advise
my clients to do so, but we don't," he
added.
Judge Roundtree threw out the
case on the basis that the plaintiffs
failed to file the challenge within 10
days of election certification as
prescribed by law. But Little argued
that certification had never taken
place because the city commission
doesn't have the right to delegate the
task of certification to a Board of
Canvassers. Roundtree disagreed
and ultimately dismissed the case.
Rush said the turning point in
the appeals processes seemed to
occur when, "I presented the court
with the certification of the Board of
Canvassers and the ordinance in
which the commission designates
the board to certify the elections."
According to Rush, another
oversight by the plaintiffs is they
failed to include the winning
commissioner in the challenge, as
required by law, until several months
after filing the case.
In the challenge, McCoy cited
several alleged improprieties and
instances of misconduct purported
to have taken place during and after
the April 11 election. ,


Alachua City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr. said in a statement, "This
is a complete validation of the City
and its actions in the 2006
elections...We have been shown to
have followed the law in all
regards."
Little, on the other hand, notes
that Roundtree's dismissal was
based on the technicality that the
challenge wasn't filed in a timely
manner.
A group of Florida election
officials observed the City of
Alachua's 2007 election and
released a report weeks later stating
that it found no instances of
misconduct of insufficiencies in that
process.
While McCoy was named as the
plaintiff, the lawsuit was led by
political activist Charles Grapski
who enlisted the services of
University of Florida Law Professor
Little.
Little conceded that the only
remaining vestige of the 2006
election case .is a judgment by
Roundtree in which he awarded
costs to the City of Alachua to be
paid by the plaintiffs. Those costs
total just $3,500 and include only a


limited scope of the legal fees the
City of Alachua would have
incurred.
The $3,500 judgment is being
appealed by McCoy, Grapski and
Little. The law school professor said


he was confident the judgment
would be reduced at the very least.
Little. is also representing
Grapski on two other cases
including one in which they
challenge the City of Alachua on


alleged public records violations and
another in which they argue that City
Manager Watson is holding two'
roles, in violation of Florida law.

Ask Your Dentist byDougsM
Dentin hypersensitivity
Dentin hypersensitivity,


Q: What is dentin
hypersensitivity?
A: If you have a tooth that is
extremely sensitive to hot or
cold, you may have dentin
hypersensitivity. Dentin is a
relatively hard protective
material that is beneath the
tooth's enamel. Dentin surrounds
the pulp, which holds the tooth's
nerve and blood vessels.
Dentin hypersensitivity can
develop when enamel is worn
down or gums have receded and
the surface of a tooth's root is
exposed. Also, over time enamel
can develop microscopic cracks
from repeated exposure to
extreme hot or cold, which
makes the enamel expand and


contract. In any of these cases,
dentin cells can be stimulated by
hot or cold and make the tooth
sensitive. When this happens,
eating hot or cold. food, or
exposing the tooth to cold air can
be painful.
See your dentist. If the
diagnosis is dentin
hypersensitivity, the dentist may
be able to put a sealant on the
painful tooth. Or the dentist may
prescribe a special gel or
recommend an over-the-counter
desensitizing toothpaste.
Whenever you have pain in a
tooth, it's best to get dental
attention quickly to make sure
the pain is not from a cavity or an
abscess.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 01, 2007 A3


Washed clean by the




blood of the Lamb


I find it amazing that people will of the palsy to prove to the scribes
read the Bible and criticize the Lord that He, indeed, was God.


for the way that He dealt with
people and situations, e.g.,
His healing of the man with
palsy (Gospel of St. Matthew,
9:1). Palsy can mean
paralysis with the loss of
feeling in a body part, but it
can also mean that the person
has uncontrolled movement
or shaking which can
incapacitate him. When the I
man's friends brought Christ
tq help him, Jesus told the
man that his sins were The
forgiven. There are those in Leas
our society who would say All S
that simply was an empty Chur
gesture, that it did nothing for A pai
the man and his situation; Chris
and, that Jesus only used the Chur
words to make Himself look
important and holy in front of all the
people, the Pharisees and Scribes.
Unfortunately, those people do not
believe in or know God. They also,
do not understand that for the
ancient .Jews, physical problems
were considered an outward
evidence of sin and that God is the
only one who can forgive sins.
So when the Lord said, "Son, be
of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven
thee," the scribes that were
following thought, "this man
blasphemeth." To them, Jesus had
just said that 'He was God. Of
course, Jesus knew what was in
their hearts, so He not only forgave
the man's sins; He also healed him


Ven. John E.
ure
aints Anglican
'ch, Gainesville.
rish of the
stian Episcopal
rch


So if we
look at those
two healings
that Christ
performed, we
can see what
w a s
accomplished'
by each one.
Starting with the
physical
healing-what
exactly did the
man with the
palsy receive
when Jesus
healed him?
Well, he got two
things, a new
body and a new
life. Where he


had been unable to do anything, he
was now able to walk, work to
support or start a family, etc. He
was given another chance at living.
However, we must realize that even
though the body and life are better,
eventually they will come to an end.
Death is inescapable for all of us.
We are only on this earth for a
limited time, "Remember, 0 man,
that thou art dust, and unto dust
shalt thou return." In light of
eternity, we are only in these mortal
bodies, but for the blink of an eye.
Now, look at what the man
received when Jesus forgave him
his sins. Did he receive a new body
or a new life? It was actually better


than that. By Jesus forgiving his
sins, the man is healed, both
spiritually and physically-he was
brought into full communion with
God. So, although the Jewish'
priests could pronounce a person
'whole' or healed, they did not have
the power to accomplish the
healing, it is only by God's Grace
that we can be healed spiritually.
And they would never attempt to
tell anyone that their sins were
forgiven, they only assumed that the
person's sins were forgiven if they
were somehow healed. Remember,
to the Jews, in order to be healed
physically, one must first be healed
spiritually with the forgiveness of
sin.
So, what does this all mean for
us as Christians? We have been
given so much by our acceptance of
Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, we
are guaranteed eternal life. When
this earthly shell is gone, we will
still live on, in the presence of our
Lord. We have been washed clean
of our sins by the Blood of the Lamb
in His Passion. He has defeated
Death for us by His Death upon the
Cross and His Resurrection; and by
His Ascension, we are placed at the
right hand of God the Father
Almighty! Our Triune God.
humbled Himself, becoming Man,
to bear our sins that through His
works, His teachings, His Passion,
Death, Resurrection and Ascension,
we are eternally reconciled with
His-and our-Heavenly Father.

ANNEXATION: Cc

was apparently initially agreed
to by Alachua County officials
when they didn't raise any
objections in a June 25 response
to an Urban Services Report
(USR). The USR, filed on June
8 by the City of Alachua,
provided, among other things,
the location of the property as
well as a five-year outlook of
urban services to be provided to
the parcels.
As the City of Alachua
continued with the annexation,
city planners didn't expect any
problems until they received an
Aug. 20 letter in which Alachua
County began raising objections
to the proposed annexation.
In the letter, Ken Zeichner, a
principal planner in the Alachua
County Department of Growth
Management said there were
two issues of concern. Zeichner
said one of the parcels to be
annexed in the City of Alachua
was already within the town's
corporate limits and would
likely require new and amended
notifications which omit the
already annexed parcel.
The second and seemingly
larger issue results from.
Alachua County's interpretation
of an enclave. Zeichner said

said they ultimately met with
county officials and the
property owner and thought the
matter was resolved. That,
however, is not the conclusion
county officials seem to reach
as they later responded with
another letter stating that they
requested the city not annex the
McGinley parcel until it also
annexes a string of other parcels
/of lands.
Alachua City Manager
Clovis Watson, Jr. was clearly
perturbed by the ongoing
disagreement when he wrote in
an Oct. 15 letter to County
Manager Randall Reid, "We
must tell you the manner in
which this annexation has been
handled to date is troublesome
for us.

statements made by County
personnel in this matter."
The voluntary annexation
would bring the remainder of
McGinley Industrial Park into
the City of Alachua. Most of
the industrial park is already
within the city's corporate
limits.
The Parcel of land which
Alachua County noted was
already annexed into Alachua's
corporate limits is currently
surrounded oh all sides by
county land. Annexation of the.
larger parcel of land would
make .the smaller one
contiguous with Alachua's
boundaries.
Alachua commissioners
voted unanimously at the Oct.
22 meeting to, continue with the
annexation process although it
had previously deferred the
matter at the request of Alachua
County. A second hearing on
the annexation is scheduled for
the November 19 City of
Alachua commission meeting.
If Alachua County chooses
to challenge the annexation, the
matter could face a lengthy
mediation process.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 01, 2007 A7


Levy County Fair -


back after 30 years


Special to Alachua County Today
When the weather turns
crisp, that's when the leaves
begin to change and wood smoke
hazes the sky. What could be
better than being outdoors and
enjoying the seasons change?
How about enjoying it with a
corn dog or elephant ear in hand?
From Nov. 8 until Nov. 12,
Levy County will host its first
county fair in 30 years at the
Airport Complex across from the
Horseman's Park in Williston.
The fair was created to stimulate,
challenge, and entertain visitors
by educating them on the rich
agricultural heritage of the
county through livestock,
agriculture, and equestrian
events.
After 30 years, community
leaders thought it was past time
the event was revisited.
"Levy County is a huge
agricultural community and we
need to promote that to the
surrounding counties. We also
need a good, healthy, family-
friendly environment for our
youth to practice the skills
they've learned in school and on
their family farms; this fair is the
perfect place for both," said Bob
Levesque, president of the Levy
County Fair Association.
The fair will feature youth
livestock shows for heifers,
steers, hogs- including pig
racing shows-dairy goats,
rabbits, and poultry. The shows
are classed by age and focus on
the showmanship of the
presenters. Equestrian shows
will also be featured including
exhibition-style demonstrations,
competitive events, calf and
team roping, JackPot barrel
racing, and JackPot pole bending
runs.
Outside of livestock and
equestrian events, the fair will
feature a mower zone with lawn
mower racing-both stock
mowers and modified-a
NASCAR simulator and pit crew


challenge, remote- controlled car
racing on a miniature speedway,
and a midway featuring classic
fair rides and games for all ages.
Visit the many food vendors
that will be on-site. From
traditional fair cuisine such as
popcorn, hotdogs, hamburgers,
and corndogs, to area restaurants
serving up bar-b-q and pizza,
there will be plenty of food to go
around. Crafts of all varieties will
be featured at the fair including
photography, hand painted items,
drawings, sculptures, handmade
rugs, jewelry, toys, wood
carvings, and more.
Each day of the five-day
event will feature a different
theme: youth, oldies rock and
roll, country, gospel, and
Veterans. Musical
accompaniment will match each
day's theme from hip-hop and
rock to patriotic. Fair admission
is $8 for general admission
everyday, except Saturday, Nov.
10 (general admission is $10).
Children aged two and under are
free every day; veterans are half
price on Monday, Nov. 12, for
the Veterans Day celebration.
Fair hours are Thursday, Nov.
8, 4 p.m. -10 p.m.; Friday, Nov.
9, 4 p.m.-12 a.m.; Saturday, Nov.
10, 10 a.m.-12 a.m.; Sunday,
Nov. 11, 12 p.m.-10 p.m.; and
Monday, Nov.12, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Before the busy holiday
season blows in, come to the
Levy County Fair; win a stuffed
toy for a loved one, cheer on the
underdog in the pig races, and fill
up on food that's too good to pass
up. After all, who can resist
funnel cake?

Support for Bill Coughlin
Along ith many local
governments. High Springs is facing a
number of challenges.
I believe the most important
challenge \iill be growth and planning.
Of all the city commission candidates.
Bill Coughlin is the most qualified to
lead us through these challenges. Bill
has a through knowledge of the
comprehensive plan the %\as on the
committee that drafted the 2000
comprehensi e plan) .As the program
director of hazardous materials
management with the University of
Florida he also understands technical
and environmental issues. He has also
worked in pri ate industry providing
technical services to man\ of the
largest engineering and research
companies in Florida. In addition to
these qualifications he is a former
mayor commissioner, a former plan
board member and he has lived in High
Springs for 19 years.
Secondly. 'w ith the State Legislature
mandating a reduction of property
taxes our city \\ill certainly be
challenged with budget issues in
coming months and years. Our leaders
must learn to provide services with
fewer resources. Hard questions must
be asked- such as. is the increase in city
staff and salaries over recent \ears
justified b. the relati'el\ modest
increase in population? (from 2000 to
2006 the increase 'was about 7)00 Bill
\ill ask these hard questions.
Bill Coughlin is a man of integrity
and dedication. Please join me in
voting for Bill Coughlin on No\. 6.

Support for Gene Levine
To The Good People of High
Springs:
I anm writing this letter to you from


near York. Pennsy lvania %'here I ha'e
lied all my life. During that time. I
had the extreme good fortune to know
and %work with Mr. Gene Levine \\ho
now lives in \our lo\\n and is a
candidate for city commissioner. Nok
it is \ou %~ho ha\e the good fortune to
ha3e the best possible man for this
office in your grasp and I'll tell \ou
xh.\. Gene is a natural born leader I
hate learned so much from this man as
a associate in his consulting business.
not only from his talent in being able to
quickly analyze problems and produce
multiple solutions with pros and cons,
but socially as %,ell \'here he has
touched on many people w\ho needed
his advice and \'isdom. Gene is a
people person \with the ability to work
\'ith and help not only the executives
in the business world but the farmer
\who has problems or the blue collar
,worker with a gripe as well.
Folks. xes I am a long \\'a from
High Springs and \ou know. I ma\
ne\ er get to isit y our fair city. and you
might say 'Why in the world should I
listen to some guy in Pennsyl\ ania?'
Well. because I speak from the heart.
ha\e absolutely nothing to gain but a
desire to share %\hat I know is true
about Gene Le'ine with \our town.
without a doubt, the best possible man
for the job hands do\\ n. He's the right
man, at the right time. with the right
answers. Don't let this opportunity
pass you b.. Elect Gene Le\ ine...now'.
for the office of city commissioner.
Darryl R.Young
Doiler P4

Politics as usual?
\e are proud to endorse and
support Gene Le\ine as the next city
commissioner of High Springs The
reasons are man\. but most are
explained in Gene's thoughtful
w\ebpage [%w.\genele\ ine.org] '\here
he has fully laid out his reasons for


seeking the position and has carefully
discussed the issues facing High
Springs. .Any one truly interested in the
future of our cit \\ill find no better
place to learn %'hat the future holds for
all of us.
But w'e don't w\rite today to merely
advance Gene's candidacy. Rather we
are troubled about \vhat seems to be a
type of politics being practiced by
some here in High Springs \which is
more reminiscent of Miami or may be
Newark politics than \what we
expected in our new\ small city home.
Gene has let the thinly veiled
references to "Boca" roll off his back
as he should, since they are clearly
designed to di\ ide rather then enhance
and unite our community.
Of greater concern, however. "\as
the preparation, distribution and use of
an unsigned, unattributed attack "fact
sheet" about Gene that '~as apparently
handed out. among other places, at the
'ern forum %there the candidates ,rere
to do \hhat candidates should do -
respond to questions impartially
framed by the sponsor of the event.
Why didn't the authors) at least have
the courage to sign their names? The
answer should be ob\ ious.
We ha' e no idea \\ho chose to use
this back-alley sort of attack. and
certainly [would not expect that either
of the other candidates knew of it or
endorsed it. If there is anything going
on in this campaign that is not in the
best interest of our community, it is not
Gene's accent or well-crafted ideas, but
rather the use of tactics designed to
anonymously go after one candidate
with baseless allegations for the
intended benefit of others.
And now what? Certainly w\e hope
that all caihdaes will denounce the
use of such tactics by their supporters
or friends. We haven't heard anyone
do that yet, but there is still time for
character to rise above partisanship.
And our media? I wouldd similarly


expect all of the print media to loudly
stale that such tactics ha'e no place in
High Springs. and that the creators) of
the handout should go backk) to
Miami. or New\ark. if the \ want to pl\
that trade. It has no place in the city we
chose for its good character ... and
good nature
One of our local on-line \websites
has already addressed this particular
anonymous attack. which h in some
places is against the law.
AlachuaVoterGuide.com accurately
noted that it vas "\itriol" and could
easily backfire. This is a small start in
the right direction.
Does any one else agree with us that
the slide down this slipper and tawdrn
slope should be stopped no\w? Let's
just campaign and vote for the best
candidate. And follow the rules ...
fairly .
Paul and Lucie Regensdorf
High Springs, FL


Support for Dick
Williams
I personally believe Dick Williams
to be the candidate with \our interests
as his own and the candidate best
qualified to protect High Springs'
natural resources.
This city is linked to its
environment and he is the only
candidate that has the experience and
in depth understanding to make impact
choices for you and the environment.
He was employed by the Department
of Environmental Protection (DEPi.
chair of Sierra Club, and has recently
been appointed a board member of Our
Santa Fe River.
He is the candidate qualified to
protect our city's natural beauty and
make sure that it is not trampled under
by future development.
MIerrillee Malwitz-Jipson
Ft. I'hite. FL


Dick Williams \\ill get my \ote on
Nov. 6. We were drawn to this region
because of its beauty and rivers. As a
ne\' resident of High Springs in
Alachua Counts. I know\ little about the
"politics" of this area, but I do know\
outstanding qualifications when I see
them. Dick Williams has a college
degree in conservation biology. was an
environmental specialist for the state.
\vas chairman of the Suiannee.St.
Johns Sierra Club and is a member of
"Our Santa Fe Riler." He '\ill actively
recruit en% ironmentally sound
businesses to relocate to our town. To
prove he can also read. write and
speak. he was a reporter and editor for
the Orlando Sentinel In this time of
global warming, Dick Williams seems
to me to be eminently qualified to
represent us on the city commission.

JIM DOU Gay has always had a passion fAS
Continuedfom page Gay has always had a passion for cars


customer service that has been a hallmark of
the business since the day it opened.
Douglas's grandson, Jim Forrester, and his
brother-in-law, General Manager Stacey Gay,
run the daily operations of the agency. Gay
first started working at the dealership in 1983
as a salesman, and still remembers the first two
vehicles he sold. Before working at the
dealership, he was a farmer at his parent's farm
in LaCrosse, while working in tractor sales in
Alachua.
While contemplating leaving the tractor
business, his father-in-law, Baxter Forrester
recruited him to work at the Chevrolet
dealership on a trial basis. He credits Forrester
for giving him a solid knowledge of the
automobile business.
"My father-in-law was very good to work
for," said Gay.
Even though he has been general manager
( of Jim Douglas since February 1999;,Gay still
lends his hand in sales, along with visiting auto
auctions around the region to help stockpile


the business's used vehicle fleet.
"I'm one of those guys who wants to be
involved in everything," he said.
Gay is quick to dispel the notion that being
an automobile dealership owner is one of both
glamour and luxury. He said the business
always faces challenges, and demanding hours
for employees. According to Gay, the
employees at Jim Douglas are the backbone of
the company.
"We're appreciative of our employees..
They do such a good job," Gay said of the 17
people that work for him.
He also believes one of the reasons for the
agency's success is the low turnover ratio of
employees. Gay added many of his employees
have worked for him for over 20 years.
Jim Douglas Chevrolet gets most of its
customers from Gainesville, Alachua, High
Springs, and Newberry. However, many
customers come from Brabford, Fort White,
and Lake City. Gay said the dealership's
location brings exposure to the business


because of the number of motorists who travel
the road everyday.
Outside of the business, Gay is a devoted
family man. He's been married for 26 years to
his wife Mary, and has three children,
Elizabeth, 24, who is a teacher, Stefanie, 21,
who attends Lake City Community College,
and 11-year-old Emily who goes to High
Springs Community School.
He said he enjoys interacting with both
customers and employees on a daily basis.
Since he was a child, Gay was fascinated with
cars and their speed. His love of cars, he adds,
has helped him, in his career.
"It's got to be something in your blood,"
said Gay.
When dealing with customers, he makes it
a priority among employees to treat their
customers right.
"We present ourselves in a way that they
want to come back,"'!aid Gay.
# # #


CAR SHOW:
Continued from page A]
Proceeds from event help various
charities
Other cars showcased included an official Chevrolet
pace car similar to the one used at the Indy 500 racing event,
and a 1969 Dodge Roadrunner which featured a high Speed
hemi-engine. The car also displayed a unique design of the
Warner Brothers Roadrunner on one side and on the
steering wheel.
Fans of the 1980s television hit The Dukes ofHazzard
would have been thrilled with the sight of the General Lee
parked at the event. The 1969 Dodge Charger on display
was identical to the one used on the show, with the exact
paint color and body design. Pictures were on display
showing how the car was designed to emulate the one that
became a popular icon among television viewers.
Rotary Club member Stacey Gay said proceeds from the
event will help numerous charities around the area. He's
hopeful the club will collect proceeds between $4,000 and
$5,000 from Saturday's event. Even though exact figures
were unavailable, Gay said car displays were up this year.
"We work a little harder every year, to get car attendan e
up," said)Gay.

School buses set to receive additional cleaning and sanitizing


According to Principal Bill Herschleb, the school is conducting an'
intensive cleaning of the facility, along with installing additional hand
dispensers in higher risk areas such as locker rooms. He said the
infection is isolated among students who participate in school
athletics. Herschleb mentioned administrators are committed to a
clean environment on campus.
"We're doing an incredibly thorough job on campus,".he said.
Students are urged to wash hands thoroughly, cover open sores
with bandages, and avoid sharing personal items. In addition, the
school sent letters to parents reminding them of the risks associated
with staph infections and the steps to prevent infections.
Herschleb said Santa Fe's faculty and staff have dealt with the
issue professionally with students. He noted employees have
continually discussed with students about staph infections and their
causes. Herschleb added the entire school community is still learning
to cope with the situation.
"We're all on a steep learning curve," said the Principal.
When asked what his reaction was upon hearing of the infection
spreading among students, Herschleb felt something had to be done
immediately among faculty and staff. "Anytime you have a situation
like this, it sends a message of urgency," said Herschleb.
Alachua County Public Schools spokesperson Jackie Johnson
said none of the students that contacted the infection were excluded
from school. However, the students were not allowed to participate in


athletic activities unless cleared by a doctor. She said the infected
individuals have either recovered or are expected to make a full
recovery.
Because of the series of staph infections at Santa Fe, Johnson said
custodians around the school district will receive additional cleaning
and sanitizing training to prevent infection. In addition, buses will be
cleaned and sanitized more frequently around the area.
"This is new territory for us," said Johnson.
Alachua County Health Director Tom Belcoure said bacteria from
the infections were mostly contacted in a hospital environment.
Because MRS is a more resistant strain of bacteria, the infection has
become prevalent among individuals. He said the health department
is continuing to monitor the issue around the school district.
Staph infections usually come in the form of a wound or sore. The
infection is caused by the staphylococcus bacteria, and often begins
with a little cut which gets infected by the bacteria. Many cases of the
infection come as a result of walking barefoot.
Staph infections range from a simple boil to a flesh eating
infection.
In response to the death of the 17-year-old Virginia student, the
school district where the individual attended school closed 21 schools
to help prevent further spreading of the disease.

EXEMPTIONS: A
Continued fJomn page A

"I think that given the
chance, voters would have
chosen the bipartisan House
plan, but in the end, that was not
the package that was on the
table.
"When we came back on
Monday, the Senate chose not to
even consider our good work
and instead they sent us a bill
that falls short along with a
message that says 'take it or
leave it, this is as good as you
will get from us and we are
going home.'"
Voters will have the choice of
whether or not to approve a tax
reform bill that Boyd considers
to be incomplete. The proposed
tax reform bill doesn't address
disparities created with the long-
standing Save Our Homes
Initiative in which the value of a
primary homestead cannot be
increased more than three
percent annually while new
homeowners pay taxes on
current market values of homes.
Often, Boyd pointed out, a
person buying a home pays
considerably more in taxes than
their neighbor who has been


average savings to homeowner would be about $225


protected under the Save Our
Homes Initiative.
The House proposal, which
was not adopted by the Senate,
included a more localized
formula for calculating taxes and
allowed for a county-by-county
review of property valuations.
Dissatisfied with the Senate's
bill that was ultimately adopted,
Boyd said of the House proposal,
"I felt like we finally had
something...We worked across
the aisle to come up with
something that would provide
reform and relief.
"It would have given relief to
those who most needed it while
it would have closed the gap
created by the Save Our Homes
Initiative."
Although Alachua County
homeowners would see an
average of $225 of savings per
year through the new homestead
exemption, the impact of the tax
cuts on the local government
might be much more profound.
Alachua Mayor Gib Coerper
notes that while the City of
Alachua has a diverse tax base
and may be able to absorb the


additional tax cut, he doesn't
believe all cities would be as
fortunate.
"While it does provide tax
relief to some, it puts an even
greater burden on smaller cities
that don't have the financial
wherewithal to take yet another
hit on property taxes," Coerper
said.
"This is another rush job by
the state legislature and it's not
well thought out," he added.
According to High Springs
Mayor Larry Travis, The jury is
still out on the latest proposed
exemption.
"It's too early to say what
kind of impact this would have
on a community like High
Springs," Travis said, adding,
"Although, I think it will be
significant, we just don't have
the numbers yet."
According to the 2006 U.S.
Census Bureau, more than $1.2
billion of taxes were deducted
through the homestead
exemption in Alachua County'
alone. The average value of
some 50,000 single-family
homes in Alachua County is


currently $173,865, according
to the Alachua County Property
Appraiser's Office.
If voters pass the measure in


January, the total exemptions for
homes in Alachua County would
substantially increase, likely
leading to financially tougher


times for small cities that
struggled this year to meet
budget demands.

ELECT BILL COUGHLIN!

Hello Friends and Neighbors,

I am running for High Springs City Commission and need your support.

In 1885 my great-great grandfather drove a prairie schooner from Oklahoma to St.
Augustine. In his pocket was a guide book which called St. Augustine a paradise for a
poor man, where opportunity awaited. He was welcomed by the community and with
hard work, good fortune and perseverance he built a business and a home that stands
today.

In 1988 my wife Donna and I brought our little family from Gainesville to High Springs.
We didn't have much, but with hard work, good fortune, and perseverance and we have
made a home of our own. Much like my grandfather's experience, the community of
High Springs welcomed us with open arms. From their
S. start at First Baptist's ECEC, to High Spring's
.- Elementary, Spring Hill Middle School, and Sante Fe
High, the choir at St. Madeline's, or community theatre,
d,, our children have thrived. We who have lived here know
this is because of the people in our community, their
Values, and the interest they take in their community.

o ... During this time I have tried to contribute to the
community whenever possible, coaching youth soccer
and youth basketball; serving the .city on the comp plan
advisory board, the plan board, the code board, and High
.. Springs city commission.

Prior to moving to High Springs, I served terms on the Alachua County Environmental
Advisory Board; Gainesville's Energy Advisory Board, spent six years in the US Navy
Submarine service and obtained a graduate degree from UF's College of Engineering.
Presently I am a department head at UF, where I manage the hazardous materials
program. I supervise 10 employees, a 1.5 million dollar budget, and help insure the
University's compliance with U.S. EPA and Florida DEP regulations.

Though I believe my previous experience and education has prepared me for the office
of City Commissioner, why else would you consider voting for me? Some reasons stand
out; you know my record. From the Hill to Pine Hills, Southside to Westside I've been
there for all of our citizens; facing the challenges of a growing community, listening to
you, and providing oversight and direction to government in a diligent and responsible
manner. I know the community. We are a small town of modest means. No matter how
well intentioned government spending is, it has to be within the ability of citizens to pay.
Many of the impacts of the rising cost of living within the city are felt most sharply by
our senior citizens and small businesses. We need to move deliberately but
conservatively into the future. And, I've been deeply involved with High Springs and its
residents for almost 20 years. I care about this community. You know I will continue to
care after Election Day and in the years to come.

Thank-you for your support!

* Both the Raider boys and girls

golf teams enjoyed success in 2007


By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
T he Santa Fe High School boys golf team
won its third-straight district title and earned
its third consecutive trip to the regional
tournament.
Unfortunately for the third year in a row the
Raiders also had an individual golfer come one shot
shy of a playoff for one of the two state tournament
berths.
At the Class 1A, Region-2 tournament at the Royal
Amelia Golf Club on Tuesday, Oct. 23, Santa Fe's
Jerrod Giron shot a 1-over par 73 to finish fourth
overall.
Parker Clowers of Jacksonville Providence shot a
3-under par 70 to win the individual regional
tournament title, while Femandina Beach's Micah
Jacobsen and Jacksonville Bishop Kenny's Pete
Kellerman tied for second-place after each shot a an
even-par 72., Jacobsen beat Kellerman in a playoff
and clinched the second and last individual berth to
the Class 1A state tournament.
"Jerrod had what we consider in golfto be a career
day and his best score by far this year," said Santa Fe
head coach Frank Anderson. "It shows his potential
and his capabilities when things go his way."
Giron fired a 37 over the first nine holes before
posting a 36 over the final nine holes. The junior, who
has been a three-year varsity player, also had five
birdies during the event that was hosted, by
Femandina Beach.
Former Raider standout Brian Searing missed the
playoff for a spot in the state tournament by one
stroke in each of the last two years.
"I was just really happy for him (Giron),"
Anderson said. "He just really played well."
Providence and Bishop Kenny shot a 295 and 302
respectively to finish first and second in the team

District Champs


* Newberry slips by
Ocala Trinity Catholic
23-20 in double OT
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
NEWBERRY Although he is just 5-
foot-7 and 175-pounds, star running back
Antwan Ivey has continually turned in big-
time performances for the Newberry High
School football team.
Last Friday was no different as Ivey ran
32 times for 234 yards and two
touchdowns, made a key reception on
fourth down, made a big tackle on fourth
down and also intercepted a pass to lift the
Panthers to a thrilling 23-20 double-
overtime victory over Ocala Trinity
Catholic.
The crucial District 4-2B win, which
came in front of an overflow crowd at
Panther Stadium, coupled with P.K.
Yonge's loss to Chiefland gave Newberry
its first district championship since 1998.
Senior Phillip Wamer kicked three field
goals on the night, including the game-
winning 20-yard field goal in the second
overtime which sent the Newberry side of
the stadium into ajoyous eruption.
"I had a great performance, but I
couldn't do it by myself it's always the
team," said Ivey, who has a scholarship
offer from Wofford and has generated
interest from Ohio University, Middle
Tennessee, Florida Intemational, Florida
A&M, Campbell and Bethune-Cookman.
"It was a lot of fun tonight, it's always good
to be achamp.",
The Panthers (8-0, 3-0), ranked third in
Class 2B, also unseated Trinity Catholic
(5-4), which was the two-time defending
district champion. First year Celtics' head
coach and former Newberry star Ricky
Nattiel saw first hand how talented his
alma mater's current star is.
'Tve got to give them credit, I've got to
give number 4 (Ivey) credit, he is a heck of
a player, he saved them tonight," said

...Mikey will try to explain.
Essentially, following the
Bulldogs' first TD of the game
Saturday, virtually the entire
Georgia team somewhere in the
neighborhood of 70 players bolted
from the sideline and gathered in the
end zone, celebrating the TD.
In an apparent attempt to create
some emotion, Bulldogs' head
coach Mark Richt told his players
(sometime prior to the game) that if
they didn't receive an excessive
celebration penalty after they scored
their first TD, all of them would be
forced to make an early morning run
on Monday.
Richt said he told the players that
it could not be an individual act, but
later admitted he only thought the
offense alone would take part in the
celebration, and not the entire team.
Consequently, Georgia received
successive 15-yard penalties
following the play, but still went on
to a 42-30 upset over the Gators.
And well, as you can imagine,

As for you Gator fans, yes,
Richt's decision was lame-brained

The bottom line is, the Bulldogs
played more physical than UF and
had an extra week to prepare, while
Florida fielded a defense that
couldn't stop a single drop of water

just how much they have been

, irring the pot of beans that was cooking on her stove, Mrs. Todd
began to worry about the children. Once again, she went to the
window and looked outside. The children were not to be seen.
Mrs. Todd moved her bean pot off the fire and went to get help.
Just a half mile away, in a dark and cold cave, Emily and her
friends were in distress. They could not find a way out of the
cave. Emily could hiard.y mi int :,because Rose was crying so loudly.
John had dropped the torch and could not find it.
The three children held hands and tried to walk through the cave.
But it was so dark, they could not find their way. The cave floor
was rough and they were stepping on large rocks and running
into hard walls. Emily bumped her head. She could feel blood
on her forehead.
Then, when it seemed that things could get no worse, Emily
felt water in her shoes. Rose began to scream again as all three
children were suddenly walking in water up to their ankles.
Finally, the children found a big rock. They sat down together,
trying to keep their feet out of the water.
Emily's heart sank when she thought about dying. She wished
they had never gone into the cave. She wished she was home
eating lunch with her mother. She wished her father would
come and rescue them.
But none of her wishes came true.
As they sat on the rock, Rose stoppedscreaming and just cried
softly. John called, over and over, for help. Emily just hoped
and prayed.
Then, as if her prayer had been answered, Emily heard another
voice. All three children began to shout for help. Soon they saw
a light coming through the darkness. The children jumped off
the rock down into the water and ran toward the light.
Two men, each holding a torch, waited for the children. Emily
did not know the men, but they seemed like angels to her. The
one with the black bushy beard took her hand while the man
in the plaid shirt took Rose's hand. John followed behind.

Mikey's Heisman List and Why

This will be a weekly installment
that could, and most likely will,


change dramatically each week as
the stretch run of the college football
season unfolds.

1. Matt Ryan / Boston College
Contrary to consensus belief
Ryan is the front-runner at the
moment He has the record (8-0), the
"Signature Win" (over Virginia
Tech) and the "Signature Moment"
(breathtaking comeback in the final
two minutes at Virginia Tech).
Pros: Boston College's
seemingly toughest game (at
Virginia Tech) is behind them; The
Eagles' amazing win over the
Hokies was the only game being
shown on national television last


so that parents can share the stories with their children.
"The Best Storyteller" is a historical fiction story for young
readers set in Hannibal, Missouri in 1850. It's the story of 11-year-
old Emily Todd, daughter of a Mississippi riverboat captain, who
finds adventure high on the river bluffs adventure that provides
good writing material for Sam, the boy Emily thinks is "The Best
Storyteller."

Thursday, allowing all Heisman
voters an unmolested view of
Ryan's two minute magic at the end;
Ryan could possibly get an extra
game to show out ifBC can make it
to the ACC title game.
Cons: No.50 rated passer in the
nation; "Signature Moment" may
have come along after most
Heisman voters had all but crossed
Ryan off their list after having a
horrific first 58 minutes against the
Hokies; If BC makes it to the ACC
title game, Ryan gets an extra game
to crash and bum.

2. Tim Tebow / Florida
Tebow is obviously a longshot
now that the Gators have three
losses. And with the young injury-
depleted defense seemingly getting
worse, the odds are stacking up like
a Conestoga's Monster Burger
However, it should be noted that in
1956, Paul Hornung won the
Heisman while playing for a 2-8
Notre Dame team.
Pros: No.1 rated passer in the
land; Even in UF's three losses,
Tebow has put up superb numbers;
Has possessed "Signature Name
Recognition" ever since he stepped
on campus in Gainesville; Has nine
consecutive games with at least one
rushing TD.
Cons: Tebow is only a
sophomore, and no sophomore has
ever won the Heisman; With every
loss, the invite to New York gets that
much harder to garer; That
glowing piece of Kryptonite
Kentucky inserted into Tebow's
right shoulder.

3. Dennis Dixon / Oregon
Depending on how far the Ducks
can go, Dixon may slip by on the
outside (the west coast, that is) to
sneak the trophy away from the
font-runners.
Pros: Dixon has two semi
"Signature Wins" against Michigan
and USC; He's certainly one of the
most dynamic quarterbacks in the
nation with his option running
ability.
Cons: Suffered a monumental
turnover (three interception)
meltdown in Oregon's only loss
(against Cal, a team that has lost
three straight); Dixon's Ducks play
in Eugene, Oregon, and most folks
only catch highlights of the late,
west coast games.

when he heard the following stats on
his favorite reality television show,
ESPNs College Gameday.
Prior to Florida State's clash with
mighty Duke on Saturday, the once-
feared Seminoles:
mHad an 8-8 record over their last
16 games
MWere 3-13 in their last 16 ACC
league games
*Had lost 29 games since 2001,
while only losing 19 games in the
14 seasons prior to 2001.

STo make amends, the Seminoles
roared back to kick four field goals
and two TDs in a 25-6 win over the
Blue Devils, losers of 22-

Email-challenged Mikey?
Mikey owes a big "I'm sorry" to
reader Kathy Theus.
It seems that Mikey's email
account was taken hostage by the
terrorists, and was uncheckable for
almost two months (that's my story
and I'm sticking to it).
At any rate, Kathy's e-mail (which
included great pictures), chronicling
her and her family's trip to
Greenville, North Carolina a few
weeks back to visit and watch two
former Santa Fe Raiders play at East
Carolina, somehow got lost in.the
virtual shuffle.
According to Kathy, both Melvin
' Patterson (who played football for
her husband, Bobby Theus, Pop
Wamer team back in the day) and
Linval Joseph are doing well and
enjoying playing time for the
Pirates.
Thanks again for the email and
pictures, Kathy, keep them coming.
And, once again, Mikey extends
his apologies.

Things to Think About and Do

A. The children walked into water when they were lost in the
cave. How does water get into a cave? Talk tq an adult about
what it would be like to be lost in a cave.
B. If you had been with Emily and her friends, what would you
have done to find a way out of the cave? How would you
have felt when you saw the men with torches coming to
help you?

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 01, 2007 UJ


PANTHERS:
Continued from page B1

quarter as Frankie Velez drilled a 34-
yard field goal atthe 8:26 mark ofthe
period. Newberry was stopped on
downs on its ensuing possession but
Wamer boomed a 57-yard punt that
started Trinity Catholic's next
possession on its own four-yard line.
But that didn't matter as eight-plays
and 96 yards later the visitors led 17-
7 at the 2:29 mark. Quarterback Rob
Henry found wide receiver Khiry
McDonald, who made a leaping
grab in between a pair of Newbeny
defenders, with a 41-yard
touchdown pass.
But Ivey and the Panthers
responded before the end of the
period. On a critical fourth down and
nine play from the Newberry 38-
yard line, Ivey made a one-handed
circus catch off a Guy Brown pass
that was barely good enough for a
first down. Three plays later Ivey
found the end zone from six yards
away and made it a 17-14 game with
21 seconds left in the third quarter.
Ivey, who also plays safety on
defense, continued with his late-
game heroics on Trinity Catholic's
next drive. The Celtics were faced
with a fourth down and one situation
at the Newbeny 46-yard line with
less than eight minutes left to play.
The visitors went for it and pitched
the ball to running back Derrick
Dempsey, wAho eclipsed the 1,000
yard for the season mark a few
weeks prior. But Ivey raced up and
met Dempsey before he could turn
the comer and threw the Celtics
runner to the ground for a one-yard
loss.
That helped set up Wamer's 26-
yard field goal which knotted the
game at 17-17 with 4:01 remaining.
Newbeny then got another key
defensive play as Matt Robinson
picked off a Henry pass at midfield
giving the home team a chance to
win the game in the closing minutes.
The Panthers moved the ball into
Celtics' territory while carefully
keeping an eye on the clock. While
Ivey carried the ball on the first four
plays ofthe drive, Xavier Woods got
the call on the fifth play but fumbled.
Trinity Catholic recovered the loose
ball but ran out the clock sending the
game into overtime.
Wamer kicked a21-yard field goal
putting Newbeny ahead 20-17 after
the Celtics kept Ivey out of the end
zone on three-straight runs starting at
the 10-yard line. The Panthers
defense then retired the favor and
forced Velez to kick a 20-yard field
goal which evened the score at 20-
20.
On Trinity Catholic's next
possession, Henry threw a pass on
third and goal from the seven-yard
line. But Ivey was on the receiving
end of the pass which he caught in
the end zone that also ended the
Celtics' threat. Ivey, who has rushed
for more than 1,000 yards last season
and this season, then carried the ball
three consecutive times for two-
yards each which set up Wamer's
game-winning kick from 20-yards
away.
"It is what everybody should
know about him (Ivey)," said
Newberry head coach Tommy
Keeler, who added that he recently
received a call from' UF's recruiting
coordinator asking about Ivey. "He's
a special player and he's the best
player I've ever coached and we're
going to put him on the field as often
as we possibly can, you saw tonight
why."
Guy Brown was just 2-for-4
passing for 22 yards and an
interception, with Ivey rushing for
most ofNewbeny's 298 yards onthe
ground. Wamer had an exceptional
evening, hitting both extra point
attempts while sending three kickoffs


into the end zone for touchbacks in
addition to the 57-yard punt and the
three field goals.
"A field goal kicker wants a big
field goal, they want a pressure field
goal and he (Wamer) came up with
that tonight," Keeler said. "All of
those kicks into the end zone starting
them back on their 20-yard line, a
huge punt and then to come through
and hit every one of those extra
points; he hit that field goal at the end,
he did a great job for us tonight"
Dempsey led the Celtics with 143
yards on 30. attempts and a
touchdown, while Henry was 8-for-
14 passing for 149 yards and a
touchdown and three interceptions.
McDonald hauled in three passes for
93 yards and score inthe loss forthe
Celtics, who won the 2005 Class 2B
state title and finished as state runner
up last season.
"Once we held them on the first
drive (in overtime) I thought we were
going to go in and drive it down their
throats and end the game," Nattiel
said. "We had them right where we
wanted them, they had to kick a field
goal, I really thought we would score
there and finish the game off.
"But we didn't and we gave them
life again, we had a chance to nail the
coffin and we didn't do it," the coach
continued. "When you are on the
road you got to make those plays,
you got to win it when it is there for
you and we didn't do it"
Newbeny wasted little in opening
the scoring for the game as Ivey's 39-
yard touchdown run gave the home
team the early 7-0 edge just 1:14 into
the contest. After holding Trinity
Catholic on downs, the Panthers
were deep in Celtics' territory
looking to take a commanding two-
touchdown lead. However, Ivey was
stopped on the two-yard line during a
fourth and goal situation from five
yards away.
The visitors turned around and
marched 98 yards in 10 plays capped
by Dempsey's six-yard touchdown
run which tied the game at 7-7 at the
5:19 mark of the second quarter.
'Trinity Catholic, honestly, we've
seen them play a lot, this is the best
game they've played," Keeler said.
"We've watched them against
Chiefland and PX. Yonge and some
other teams, and we thought we
should be able to beat these guys, but
they brought ittonight I thought they
played real well."


Although Nattiel, said he didn't
have any emotions about returning to
his alma mater during the game, he
did say he can be a Panthers fan
again.
"Honestly, though, I always want
to see them (Newberry) do well. If
we don't win it all I want themto win
it all, absolutely,' but when I'm
playing against them all of that is
off," said Nattiel, whose club
finished district play 2-2 and will
need help from other teams if they
are going to make the playoffs this
season. "I'm a Newbeny fan until
we play them, if we don't win state I
want them to win it, simple as that"
On the injury front for the
Panthers, Keeler said Antonio
Brown and Ryan Brown, both of
whom suffered sprained ankles last
Friday night, are expected to play this
week. But the status of Woods, who
sprained his ankle in three different
places according to Keeler, is a
game-time decision. The coach said
Woods would be evaluated 'on
Friday prior to the game.
Newberry hits the road for its final
away game of the regular-season as
they will travel to Gainesville to face
P.K.Yonge in aDistrict 4-2B game at
7:30 p.m. With the district title and a
first round playoff game at home all
wrapped up, Newberry is in what
Keeler called a, "great situation."
Although the pressure of
maintaining its perfect record is there
for Newberry, a regional-playoff
berth is at stake for the Blue Wave. In
order for PK. Yonge to have a shot at
the postseason they will needto upset
Newberry and hope for Union
County to defeat Chiefland. That
wouldthen force a three-way tie for
the district runner-up spot between
Trinity Catholic, PK. Yonge and
Union County and require a district
shootout to separate the teams.
"Right now the pressure is off we
are pretty fortunate we get to a point
in the season where we've won the
district with two games left," Keeler
said. "PK. Yonge needs to win to
stay alive, definitely the pressure is
on them to perform."
A year ago, Newbeny shutout
PX. Yonge 9-0 and clinched the
district runner-up spot and its first
regional-playoffberth since 2001.

standings and earned a trip to the
Class 1A tournament. Santa Fe
posted a 323, which was 21 strokes
below its average, and finished sixth
out of the nine-team field.
After Giron's exceptional day,
senior Cory Mikell, who won the
District 4-1A individual title a week
earlier, shot an 81 as did fellow
senior T.J. Ward. Junior Richard
Greer was next with an 88, while
freshman Josh Dubberly rounded
Santa Fe's five with an 89.
"It just seemed to me all day we
played well," Anderson said. "The
course was very fair. We were out in
the morning group and it made it
easier for us because the greens were
not as fast and there wasn't much
wind. It helped being early."
What also helped the Raiders was
the fact that Anderson took his group
up on Monday for a practice round
the day before the tournament
"We took very detailed notes of
the holes and pin placements," said
the coach. "We reviewed those notes
the night before the competition,
which was a big help for us.
"We went in with a game plan and
took it one shot at a time," Anderson
said. "I was just really proud of the
effort of the whole team."
Santa Fe does say goodbye to its
two senior golfers this season in
Mikell and Ward.
"Cory was a real quiet leader, he
led by example and his work ethic
was beyond reproach," Anderson
said. "He is probably the best person
I have coached, he is a Christian
gentleman."
While Mikell was a four-year
varsity player, Ward took a different
path.
"TJ worked his way up from the
jv and he showed a lot of
improvement," the coach said. "He
developed a good scoring mentality
and he 'showed up well at districts
and at regionals."
Even though Santa Fe 'loses two
golfers from this year's team, there is
no reason to think they wont be able
to claim a fourth consecutive district
championship and make a fourth
straight trip to the regional
tournament next year. Heading into
the 2007 season the Raiders lost four
of their top six players from the 2006
squad.
"rm hoping to repeat as district
champions next year, but we have to
keep working at it," Anderson said.
On the girls side, the Raiders won
their second district title in the last
three seasons and advanced to the
regional tournament for the llth
consecutive year.
At the District 4-1A tournament


on Monday, Oct 15th at West End
Golf Course in Gainesville the host
Raiders cruised to the team title by
posting a 399 which was 55 strokes
better than Branford which finished
second (454).
Santa Fe Junior Dana Quinn fired
an 85 to win the individual district
title with teammate Amaris
Alligood, a sophomore who never
played golf prior to this season,
finishing second with a 93.
Quinn carded a45 on the first nine
holes, while posting a40 on the final
nine holes. She is the team leader
according to Raider head coach
Loretta Shane and has finished first
for Santa Fe in every match this
season.
Junior Kim Price was third for
Santa Fe with a 109, while
sophomore Chloe Campbell was
next for the Raiders with a score of
112. Freshman Emily Davis
rounded out Santa Fe's five with a
score of 135.
The Raiders advancedto the Class
1A, Region-2 tournament at the
Femandina Beach Golf Club on
Monday, October 22nd and posted a
466 to finish seventh out of the nine
team field. Quinn shot a 90 to finish
12th in the individual standings.
Jacksonville Bolles and
Jacksonville Providence shot a 337
and a361 respectively to finish in the
top two spots in the regional
tournament and eam a trip'to the
Class 1Atoumament Amelia Lewis
of Bolles carded a 2-under par 70 to
win the individual regional
tournament title, while Bishop
Kenny's Jennifer Hooper was

second with a 112, with Campbell
posting a 120. Becca Jamison added
a 144 to round outthe top four for the
Raiders.
"I had a young and inexperienced
team. Dana and Chloe were the only
two players from last year's team,"
Shane said. "I had kids that never
played before."
But despite the inexperience
Santa Fe showed improvement
throughout the season. The Raiders
lost their first nine matches to start
the campaign, but bounced back to
win five straight at one point and
finish with an 11-12 mark this fall.
Shane, who just completed her llth
season as the coach of the Santa Fe
girls golf team, said that her squad
sliced 36 strokes off its team average
from where it was at the beginning
of the season.
"What I liked about this bunch is
that they exemplified what high
schools sports is all about," Shane
said. "It's called good people having
a good time playing a game they can
carry with them for a lifetime."
The interesting aspect of this team
is that it has no seniors and is
expected to return everyone for next
season which is good news for
Shane.
"As a coach when you have
players who love what they are
doing it makes my job a lot easier, it
is not ajob anymore," Shane said. "I
have to get these kids more
experience. The girls are going to
play over the summer which is what
they need.
"We're definitely looking to repeat
at district champs, but I want a better
performance at regionals."

B4 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 01, 2007


SANTA FE:
Continued from page B1
in the tournament, were matched
against top see Middleburg in the
Class 4A, District-3 championship
game.
Santa Fe bested the Broncos last
season in the district championship
but were unable to repeat at Baker
County High School Thursday night,
losing to Middleburg in perhaps the
Raiders' most competitive match of
the season, 26-28, 25-21, 25-15, 18-
25, 15-11.
"It was just one of those games
where it was one of the best high
school volleyball matches that I've
seen, that I've been apart of,"
explained Raider head coach
Michele Faulk. "There was great
competition on both sides. There
were a couple of things that
happened on our end- little mishaps.
"In a game that competitive you
have to be almost perfect Some
things didn't fall our way and it just
happened."
The match was one of momentum
swings. Every point offered each
team the opportunity to snatch the
momentum and get a stranglehold on


the match. However, in a game as
close as this one, the final outcome
was not clear until the final ball hit the
floor on Santa Fe's side of the net
The Raiders were led by junior
Ashley Rosenboom who collected
20 kills, 30 digs and three blocks.
Santa Fe senior Leah Leventhal
added 18 kills, 18 digs and eight
blocks while teammate Stephanie
Moser picked up 22 digs and Sydney
Wilkerson led with 34 assists.
Now it begs the question. Where
do the chips fall for the Raiders?
Well, if there's one thing Santa Fe
should be used to by now, it's playing
Jacksonville Bishop Kenny in the
postseason. The difference this year
is that a spot in the final four isn't on
the line as they face off in the opening
round. Nonetheless, revenge plays a
roll for Santa Fe with Bishop Kenny
beating the Raiders each of the past
two seasons to end their year.
Santa Fe has lost to Bishop Kenny
at home in the regional finals and on
the road in the regional finals. This
year the Raiders are on the road
again, albeit in the first round this
time. Due to a gym scheduling
conflict, the teams will not play on
the campus of Bishop Kenny but


rather Jacksonville Bolles. Faulk
says she's hoping that this year's
change may be just what her team
needs to knock off the state's fourth-
ranked ball club.
"One thing that I did tell the girls is
I didn't want to get too philosophical
on them, but everything in life
happens for a reason," insisted Faulk.
"We know that we have to go
through Bishop Kenny some time
and this may be the path we need to
take.
"We come in as underdogs as
district runners-up. There's no
pressure on us. All of the pressure is
on them. All we have to do is go in
and play our game."
If beating a team that's knocked
Santa Fe out of the postseason the
past two years isn't enough
motivation for the Raiders, then
maybe the chance to play
Middleburg again is. If Santa Fe
beats Bishop Kenny in the opening
round, the Raiders advance to play
the winner of the Middleburg-
Jacksonville Stanton regional
quarterfinal match.
The Raiders have already played
Bishop Kenny during the regular
season this year. Santa Fe matched
up against its regional rivals in the
Gator Town Classic this season. The
Raiders lost in a competitive match
against Bishop Kenny, and Faulk

RAIDERS:
Continued from page B1
of 31.6 points a game through the
first eight games. This season that
number has risen to allowing 35.8
points by opponents.
The one statistic that has
improved for the Raiders this season
is probably the most important of
all. After a one-win campaign last
year, Santa Fe has won two games
this season and has an opportunity to
double that number before the pads
are put away until the spring.
Anytime a team goes through a
difficult season there's bound to be
rumblings in the crowd and
questioning of the coaching.
Brooks' response to the naysayers
may be a little surprising.
"I would say that right now
they're (naysayers) right," flatly
stated Brooks. "This is not going to
happen ovemight. You can't take a
team and make miracles from 1-9
with the same core group back.
"Obviously there have been
bright spots. The problem is
consistency. Right now the
naysayers are right, but I don't want
the kids listening to that There's a
lot more than the Xs and Os."
Brooks was chosen from over 20
applicants that threw their hat in for
the position earlier this year. He

"Obviously I'm not exactly
thrilled about what's going on,"
admitted Brooks who's a Florida
State University graduate. "We
started out winning two of our first
five, then a tough stretch where we
lost a little bit of focus. Due to some
injuries, lack of depth, that
prevented us from being where we
wanted to be.
"At the beginning of the season if
you said would I want two wins, I'd
say no, I want more. But, that's one
thing with the last two games we
have an opportunity to improve on
and I don't want the players to lose
sight of that."
When Brooks first arrived at
Santa Fe, one of his chief concerns
was to change the attitude that
surrounded the football program.
Countless sub-par seasons and a
lack of enthusiasm in the team over
the past few years became tolling
and Brooks says it has to change.
"Has it (attitude) changed yet?
No. Will it change by the end of the
year? I have no idea," said Brooks
when asked aboutthe subject "One
thing that this team lacks is
leadership. You can't have one or
two leaders. What we've got are a
couple of leaders but don't have the
followers, the guys who jump on
their backs and say let's go.
"It has to do with experience and
nowadays I think the players are
afraid to step out and be
accountable. It tookyears and years
to develop this kind of attitude and
it's going to take some time to get it
out."
. With the playoffs out of the
question and a winning season now
impossible, the Raiders are faced
with a the harsh reality of what's left

in 1998.
Adding to the irony of the
evening was that the star of the 1998
Panthers club, Mike Nattiel was also
in attendance. Nattiel, who went
onto to play linebacker at Florida
and spent a short time in the NFL,
was in the same role that Pritchett is
accustomed to. Nattiel was on the
visiting sideline as an assistant coach
for his uncle Ricky Nattiel, also a
former Panthers', UF and NFL
standout, who is Trinity Catholic's
head coach.
"It was the first Friday night
during football season in 26 years
where I had nowhere to go," said
Pritchett, who was Newberry's head
coach from 1993-99. "My dad was
in town, we talked earlier in the
week and we decided to go watch
them (Newbeny) play."
Pritchett's evening was free since
his Buchholz team had its'bye week
as did the Bobcats' next opponent -
Orange Park Fleming Island. That
meant he had a night off from
coaching and from scouting
Fleming Island.
"I was really overwhelmed by the
support Newbeny had the other
night The crowd was the biggest
I've seen it there in a long time,"
Pritchett said. "It was fun to sit there
and watch. It was neat to be back
and I had a lot of good memories
come back."
During his time as the Panthers'
head coach he guided the team to
five regional-playoff appearances
including Newberry's last home
playoff game and postseason
victory in 1998. Led by Mike
Nattiel's 132 tackles at linebacker
that season, Newberry defeated
Wildwood 44-18 in the opening
round before falling at Jacksonville
Bolles 31-7 in the second round.
Pritchett spoke to Mike Nattiel
following Newberry's exciting
victory over the Celtics.
"I had a nice talk with him (Mike
Nattiel) after the game," Pritchett
said. "I just told him I was proud to
see him out there coaching and that
it brought back memories froin


to play for? Santa Fe has two
remaining games in district-
opponent Williston and area-rivat
Fort White. Brooks looks at each
contest as an opportunity for his
team to take the season back.
"This team has got to play
football; play the game," said
Brooks. "Everybody says we've
got nothing to play for. You play for
something every time you strap
those pads on. It's different for
every individual, but you're playing
for something.
"We've got a chance in a district
game against Williston to be the
spoiler and keep them from the
playoffs, beat Fort White and win
back the paddle. Look at the seniors
who are leaving. What do they want
their legacy to be? Finish with two
wins or go out with four wins."
The good news for the Raiders is
that they are fresh off a bye week
and have had additional time to
prepare for Williston. The Raiders
play the Red Devils tonight at
Raider Field in Santa Fe's final
home game of the 2007 campaign.
The game is set to kickoff at 7:30
p.m.
"It (bye week) allows us to get
back at full strength," explained
Brooks. "You get a chance to take a
deep breath. You get to work on
executing, taking a little more time
to prepare for your opponent
"We've got a tough task with
Williston. We've got to be able to
make some plays and execute the
way we're supposed to."

when he was playing."
Pritchett added that Mike Nattiel
was also talking about Newberry's
star running backAntwan Ivey after
the game. Ivey's 234-yard, two-
touchdown evening that also saw
him make a key fourth-down catch,
a big fourth-down tackle and make
an interception in double overtime
generated a lot of chatter from just
about everyone. Pritchett also said it
is safe to say that Ivey is the best
football player to walk the halls at
Newberry High School since Mike
Nattiel.
"I think he is a Division-I running
back. That's my humble opinion,
maybe he is not
big enough, but I think he can do
it," said Pritchett, who has coached
against Ivey and the Panthers while
as the head coach at Santa Fe (2000-
2006) and in his current post when
Buchholz andNewberry played this
past spring. "He has Division-I
speed and I hope someone takes a
chance on him, he is special. I see a
lot of similarities to (UF running
back/return man) Brandon James."
With the district-champion
Panthers a perfect 8-0, ranked third
in the Class 2B state poll and
scheduled to host a regional-
semifinal playoff game, Newberry
is looking more and more like a
state-title contender.
"I think they have a real good
opportunity (of playing for the Class
2B state title)," said Pritchett, who
was the defensive coordinator for
the 1992 Newbernyteam thatplayed
for the Class 2A state championship.
"They're a talented and well
coached team. I'm sure their
coaches will do a good job of
keeping the kids focused, they'll
take it one game at a time."
Who knows, maybe Pritchett will
get another chance to see Newberny
play, possibly in The Citrus Bowl in
Orlando on Dec. 8th at 1 p.m. which
is the time and date of the Class 2B
state championship game.
