HIGH SPRINGS Four
'years after leaving the High
Springs Commission to spend
more time with his family,
former Mayor Bill Coughlin is
on board for another term after
a convincing win in Tuesday's
election.
Coughlin garnered 256
votes, while his opponents
Dick Williams and Gene
Levine collected 139 and 118
votes respectively.
After the election Coughlin


said he's ready to get to work
and tackle the issues facing the
commission. He noted High
Springs needs to update land
development codes to
accommodate growth, along
with taking a more
conservative approach on
spending. During the
campaign, Coughlin voiced his
opinion that the cofnmission
was heading in the wrong
direction and that the city was
disconnected from citizens.

A concrete batch plant proposed for five acres between U.S. Highway 441 and County Road

By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA After five arduous hours of
questioning and review, Alachua commissioners
decided Monday, a would-be concrete plant
won't be in Alachua. The unanimous vote of
denial followed an extended contentious debate
between city representatives and representatives
for Trinity Materials, LLC, which proposed the
concrete batch plant.
Commissioners ultimately denied the special
exception request on the basis that it was not


compatible with surrounding development,
concerns over noise and because it was
inconsistent with the city's 2005 Land
Development Regulations.
Alachua Mayor Gib Coerper said, "I feel like
the applicants have not met the burden of proof
that they will not adversely affect the
neighborhoods."
. Commissioner Jean Calderwood agreed
saying, "I believe [the concrete batch plant]
would impact living conditions in the

ALACHUA Trick or Treat on Main Street
has long been the hallmark fall event in
Alachua, attracting thousands of ghosts, goblins
and other youngsters decked out in colorful
costumes. The Alachua Chamber of
Commerce, the City and downtown merchants
again hosted the annual Trick or Treat on Main
Street last Wednesday.
Lasting from six to eight in the evening, the
annual trick or treat celebration features
merchants unloading piles of that much sought
after Halloween candy, and other spooky items,
into the open bags of trick-or-treaters.
Costumes were worn by young and old
alike, and included the likes of Snow White,
Superman, G.I. Joe, princesses, mice, and
prisoners and more bizarre characters. Those
with especially creative outfits competed in a
costume contest.

Alachua Elementary applied for grant

a year ago


Alliance program.
According to Principal Jim
Brandenburg, the school will purchase
five to six electric microscopes and
computer software. In addition, Alachua
Elementary is set to obtain science course
packages that emphasize the physical
sciences. Brandenburg said the
equipment will be ordered this week, and
he's hopeful the science lab will receive
the items before the end of the year.
He noted the lab currently has six
microscopes with students sharing each
one. With the new microscopes, students
will now have their own microscopes,
while learning new scientific concepts.


Brandenburg said it's important for
children to have a solid background in
science and technology.
Exxon affiliated convenience stores,
Fast Track Stores, worked with Alachua
Elementary to secure the grant.
ExxonMobil Corportation provided
funding for the grant.
"Alachua Elementary School works
hard to educate our students," said Fast
Track Stores store manager Paul
Huggins. "As an Exxon retailer, we are
pleased to be able to make this
contribution to learning in our
community."
Brandenburg first heard of the grant


from a parent who worked at a Fast Track
store. He said it took a year after first
applying before the school finally
obtained the grant. Brandenburg is
thankful for the support of local
businesses in the area for their
contributions to Alachua Elementary.
Alachua County School District
spokesperson Jackie Johnson said local
businesses play a vital role in education.
She cited programs such as career day,
internships and field trips to local
business as examples of how businesses
contribute to a student's education.

HandFootAnd-Mouth Syndronfe
Hand-Foot-And-Mouth Syndronrfe


Q: What is Hand-Foot-And-
Mouth Syndrome?
A: Hand-Food-And-Mouth
Syndrome generally affects
children, but it can also occur in
adults. It's caused by a viral
infection. It takes its name from
the fact that it results in a rash
that appears on the hands and
feet and'sometimes on the
buttocks and in the mouth. In
the mouth the rash will usually
consist of blisters and small
ulcers that'break out on the
lining of the mouth and also on
the gums, palate and tongue.
The condition may also cause a
sore throat, fever, decreased
appetite and general irritability.
It is most common in the


summer and early fall.
Normally, the condition is mild
and passes within a week.
While there is no specific
treatment for the virus, the best
way to avoid coming down
with the syndrome is to wash
hands thoroughly, particularly
after using a restroom or
handling soiled diapers.
Children who have the
condition should be kept away
from other children. The
incubation period the time
from the first contact to the
appearance of symptoms is
roughly four to six days. Talk
with your dentist about sound
hygiene practices that can help
you avoid contracting diseases.

If someone were to ask you if you invitation was an

every night" A lot of American the wedding.
Christians would consider that
to be enough to be considered
"religious." This way of
thinking is greatly influenced
by our being Americans. We
tend to support individualism .
and keeping the rights of every
person. While we should not
totally disregard these rights,
there is a danger if we ignore
the influence that such
concerns may have on our
actions and beliefs as
Christians. The Ven. John E.
This is illustrated in Jesus' Leasure
parable in St. Matthew, All Saints Anglican

to enjoy the blessedness of
communion with Him.
One nation rejected the offer of
communion with God and another
people, who weren't even a nation,
accepted the offer. But in this second
group, one man stands out-the man
who would enjoy the food, comforts,
and the atmosphere of peace and joy,
but in his own way and on his terms.
Why this man's actions are so
offensive is that the entire picture in
this parable is one of table fellowship.
Our Lord.uses something which we
all can understand-a shared meal-
to describe God's wanting to share all
that He has with His creation.
Man cannot lift himself to such a
high honor, yet our .God and King,
through His mercy and kindness, has
called us to commune with Him, to
fellowship with Him in His presence.
Having been called to so great an
opportunity, will we dishonor Him by
not putting on the Wedding Garment,
"the new man in Christ," as Saint
Paul calls it? Will we not humble
ourselves to accept the gracious offer
of communion with His Son? A
wedding garment is now offered to all
who see their need of it. Even if we
were one of the poorest or vilest of
mankind, it will not be withheld from
us. No matter how many guests may
come to the feast, there will be
wedding garments for them all. Let
us all accept the free invitation of the
Gospel, and thankfully put on the
garment which the Masterof the feast
has prepared for us. Although we are
unworthy, we shall be accounted
worthy through Christ and shall sit
down forever at the marriage feast in
heaven.

The plant was slated to be

Hipp Construction property
across from Alachua Hills
subdivision. The project
received stiff opposition. from
residents living around the
proposed site which would have
placed it near an existing
asphalt batch plant and Hunter
Marine, both industrial uses.

Trinity Materials had
originally sought to operate the

also include a concrete block
manufacturing facility. Those
hopes were dashed when
residents complained at
previous meetings about all-
night noises and lighting
pollution.
The company .nixed the
block making component, but
said typical business hours
would be from 5 a.m. until 7
p.m. and possibly overnight
when customer demand
required it.
Trinity Materials ruled out

further, although the company
did say it would take necessary
measures to further buffer or
curb noise and light if it
exceeded those allowed for
under the Alachua County noise
ordinance.
Representing Trinity
Materials, .attorney Patrice
Boyes said her client had met
the requirements of the special
exception request.
In an interview, Boyes
pointed out that a concrete batch
plant is considered an allowable
use in the zoning on the
proposed site.
"The special exception
requirement means it needs.
additional scrutiny," said Boyes.
"The burden is not on us to
show that this special exception
promotes the public welfare."
Still, much of the five-hour
hearing focused on possible
noise that would be generated if
the plant were constructed.
According to a study
commissioned by the City of


Alachua, there is a "reasonable
probability" of increased noise
in at least one of the
surrounding neighborhoods.
The assessment, performed by
Siebein Associates, Inc., also
noted that a single-page noise
contour map provided by
Trinity Materials was
insufficient and made
inaccurate assumptions.
Siebein Associates' Robert
Lilkendey, who conducted the
study, said a more exhaustive
study would be needed to
determine the extent of impact
the concrete plant would have.
Lilkendey presented his
research in which sound level
meters were placed in two
surrounding neighborhoods to
determine ambient noise levels.
Boyes criticized Lilkendey's
study, in part, because' it
referenced a publication from
an Australian governmental
agency. But Lilkendey
countered, saying that his
reference to the Australian

publication was to obtain a
listing of noises typically
created by concrete batch
plants. He also noted in his
study the referenced publication
was .consistent with his
company's own measurements
of a concrete batch plant in
Florida.
Access to the concrete batch
plant had been planned just
short of the U.S. Highway 441
bridge over County Road 2054.
Proximity to the overpass raised
concerns among several area
residents who said it was not
safe to have large trucks
entering the highway where
limited visibility exists.
The latest plans, however,
called for access to the site to be
moved further away to NW 128
Terrace. Residents speaking to
the commission on Monday still
weren't satisfied with the 110
trips per day that would be
added to U.S. 441.
Moving access to the site,
removing the block
manufacturing component and
agreeing to abide by the
Alachua County noise
ordinance wasn't enough to get
the project an approval from
commissioners.
By the end of the meeting,
commissioners said they found
the project to be incompatible


with neighboring residences and
Alachua's downtown area.
"I don't think there was:
anything else this applicant
could have done to get ,
approval," said Boyes.
"I don't really think citizens
are really going to notice this."
Boyes added that the-
proposed plant would be near
other industrial uses including
two highways, a cell tower, a-
Hunter Marine testing pond,
Hunter Marine's manufacturing
yard and the city's wastewater
treatment facility among other
facilities.
Commissioners' denial of
the special exception request
means Alachua is likely
litigation bound. Within 30
days of a final order denying the
project, Boyes said Trinity
Materials plans to challenge the
decision in circuit court.
Boyes said her clients
wanted the same consideration
as another batch plant which
was approved recently. That
project is to be located along
U.S. 441 south of the overpass
in a pasture.
The Trinity Materials batch,
plant proposal was
recommended for denial by the
Planning and Zoning 'board in
September 2006.

Tontinuedfom page Attended FBI academy last year


Plan originally presented to him on Monday
according to Sheriff Sadie Damell.
"He gave me no other option but to remove
him from my command staff" Damell said in
an interview.
"He resisted signing the [performance
improvement plan] for three days.
"What's a sheriff to do?" Damell asked.
In the administrative inquiry, a few of the
main concerns with Troiano were that he was
"insincere with his compliments and insensitive
to employees," and "fails to communicate
expectations or encourage employees to discuss
issues and problems."
Some of those interviewed for the inquiry
had similar complaints about Troiano's
interpersonal skills.
One interviewee said that she always felt
Troiano had a problem with her and that he was
often hard on her. But in the same interview, she
also stated that she "had not personally seen him
enforce unreasonable rules for the sole purpose
of exerting power over others."
A Sergeant interviewed in the inquiry said
he "had never had a personal issue with Captain
Troiano nor has he ever seen Captain Troiano
exhibit a negative or biased demeanor around
females."
Speaking of Troiano's supervisory skills
and decisions, an ACSO secretary said, "He
means well ...and believes his thoughts are in
the best interest of the agency," according to the
inquiry.
A summary of the inquiry states that
Troiano "has no supervisory nor management
skills."
The summary also alleges that Troiano
creates.a "great deal" of frustration for his
employees and they "do not like working for
him."
The same summary says that Troiano "Has
a good work ethic."
The administrative inquiry concludes,
"...Captain Troiano's demeanor and
supervisory skills have not violated any
Alachua County Sheriff's Office Directives or


Equal Opportunity laws."
Still, Damell said Troiano is lacking in his
interpersonal skills.
"A number of people had the consistent
theme that [Troiano] was detrimental to
fostering a collaborative environment ...And
that is not in line with my management style,"
said Damell.
The move from captain to lieutenant means
Troiano is no longer on Damell's command
staff.
"Command staff is completely at my
discretion," she said.
The Sheriff acknowledged that Troiano had
not been given the opportunity to respond to the
inquiry or counseled about the supposed
deficiencies in management skills before being
presented with the performance improvement
plan. But she said if he had signed the
agreement, he would have remained in his
position as captain.
Of the several people interviewed in the
inquiry process, none of them included
coworkers in the Public Information Office,
where Troiano worked for several years as a
spokesperson.
Damell said the administrative inquiry
process does not require the Sheriff's office to
allow for input or rebuttal from Troiano. It only
mattered that people had issues with the
Captain, she said.
"This was not an investigation; it was an
inquiry.
"It wasn't atit-for-tat process," Darnell said.
Damell also confirmed that in Troiano's 19-
plus years of service witliACSO, he has not had
any prior complaints in his personnel file.
"There's nothing documented.
"Although I've been told that concerns had
been brought up to previous administrations,"
she said.
Troiano was removed from his position as
captain in part due to his alleged lack of
interpersonal, supervisory and management
skills. Damell admits, however, that he is still in
a supervisory capacity as a lieutenant in the


Patrol Division.
"[Troiano] will be supervising others and he
still needs to work on his management style, but
he can not work on my command staff," said
Damell.
On the other hand, Damell lauded Troiano
saying, "Jim has served this agency very well.
"I think highly of Jim.
"He represents this agency at an exceptional
level."
Troiano has not made any public statements
since being demoted last week. But in a phone
interview with Alachua County Today he said,
"Since we are in the early stages of this process,
and since I am now being represented by legal
counsel, it would be inappropriate at this time
for me to make a formal statement.
"I stand fully committed to the men and
women at the Alachua County Sheriff's Office
and will continue serving my community with
the honor and pride I have provided for the past
22 years," Troiano said.
Troiano retained Gainesville Attorney
Gloria Fletcher to represent him in the matter.
Fletcher also represents another former ACSO
employee who was ousted after Damell became
Sheriff.
Troiano is one of many applicants in the
running for a High Springs Police Department
(HSPD)' Chief position. That post became
vacant when HSPD Chief Ray Kaminskas died
from an apparent sudden heart attack in
September.
In 2006, Troiano attended the Federal
Buire.a of In\estigation (FBI) academy,
becoming part of the less than one percent of all
acti\ e la\\ enforcement personnel to attend the
program,
Troiano has also been talked about as a
potential candidate for Sheriff although he
wasn't on the ballot in the most recent election.
Still, Damell insisted the demotion had
nothing to do with politics and that Troiano has
been loyal and supportive of her.

ELECTION:

Coughlin assumes Commission seat on Nov. 20


commissioner that reconnects
City Hall to the average citizen,"
said Coughlin.
He credited his win from all
the supporters who helped him
throughout the campaign. In
addition, Coughlin said
networking with citizens over the
past several years gave him a
better understanding of the issues
facing High Springs.
Supporter Ed Shupe considers
Coughlin's victory a mandate for
High Springs and its commission.
He added Coughlin has
experience bringing people
together to reach common ground


on city issues. "He will lead us
through all that," said Shupe.
Williams, who ran in last
year's election, once again fell
short in his quest for a
commission seat. In this year's
campaign, he ran on a platform
for stronger police and fire
services, along with tighter
controls on future development.
As a retired environmental
specialist with the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, Williams brought
environmental issues to the
forefront of his campaign.
On Wednesday, Williams


expressed appreciation to his
supporters for their efforts during
the campaign. He congratulated
Coughlin on his victory and
believes the newest commissioner
will make a difference.
"Bill Coughlin will make an
excellent commissioner and we'll
be able to rally behind him to
solve some of the city's
problems," said Williams.
Levine, who served on the
High Springs Plan Board before
resigning from his post, banked
his campaign on his business
successes and experience working
with municipal governments. He


said it was a good campaign, but
was disappointed in what he felt
were dirty tactics to undermine his
bid for commissioner.
'It's the end of the beginning.
He [Coughlin] has to deliver,"
said Levine.
When asked about his future
plans, Levine said it's too soon to
decide after a long and grueling
campaign to ponder the future.
"I'm not thinking about that. I'm
just trying to unwind at this
point."
High Springs Commissioner
Terry Maltbie, who Coughlin will
be succeeding on Nov. 20, said


it's imperative that his successor
fulfills expectations: "If I had to
give any advice I would say do
what the voters told you to do,"
said Maltbie.
In other news, voters by a
margin of 314 to 157 approved a
.measure that changes the title of
"Mayor Pro Tempore" to "Vice
Mayor." In addition, a non-
binding poll that would have
enabled city commissioners to
assess residents an annual fee not
to exceed $50 to preserve green
space in High Springs, was struck
down.


High Springs City Manager
Jim Drumm said this year's
election turnout was low because
of no state or national elections on
the ballot. According to officials,
513 voters, including absentee
voters, voted in this year's city
election. The city manager said
there's no easy way to predict
how voters will turn out for an
election.
"You never know what you
will expect in municipal issues,"
said Drumm.

I waited five hours for the
Board of Adjustment meeting
to conclude so that I could
ask the commissioners about
the four items that I had
asked to be removed. W hen
the Board of Adjustment
meeting adjourned at around
midnight, and the regular
City Commission meeting
began. Nlaor Gib Coerper
announced that the CitN had
received a request to remove
items D. E. F and G from the
consent agenda.
The mayor then proceeded
to state that he saw no need to
remove an thing from the
Consent Agenda. and he
asked the commissioners for
a motion. A motion \%as made
to approve the agenda as is.
and it carried 5-0.
I utilized my three
minutes during citizen
comments to express m\
objection to their action and
to discuss the items that \were
Approved without the public

questions or discuss them.

I am currently a plaintiff

ontinuedfom A McNeal stresses importance of educating customers


business, along with how to
treat customers. "It's people
dealing with people. If you
don't know how to deal with a
person, you'll lose."
McNeal opened Tuffy in
February 2002 after spending
several years as manager of
another auto repair business
located on Newberry Road in
Gainesville. According to
McNeal, the new Tuffy store
made $2,500 the day it
opened for business five years
ago. He said it's rare for a
business to make that much
money on a first day, adding
that business has been steady
in the Jonesville area. "It's
worked out extremely well,
even though there have been
definite peaks and valleys."


Since Tuffy opened, 74-
percent of the store's
customers have turned into
repeat. customers. He
appreciates the positive
feedback the' store receives,
along with the free cookies
and pizza the staff gets from
some customers as a thank
you gift.
"It gives me enjoyment to
see someone who feels
comfortable with us," said
McNeal.
Store Manager Joey
Wheaton, who has known
McNeal for many years, said
Tuffy works to cultivate trust
with all their customers. "The
biggest gratification is when
someone leaves you their keys
and tells us they trust you,"


said Wheaton.
Given / that today's
vehicles have been
engineered to perform beyond
100,000 miles, McNeal
foresees the future of the
automotive repair business as
a preventative service for
customers. Customers today
are expecting sound vehicle
maintenance such as brake
and power steering flushes, as
well as wanting to be
educated about the mechanics
of their vehicle, he said.
"There are no secrets in this
business."
McNeal, who was raised in
Newberry, and graduated
from Newbery High School,
is amazed at the growth the
Jonesville/Newberry area has


experienced over the past few
years. He said the growth has
had a positive impact on his
business, but hopes the area
won't change dramatically.
"This area needs to
maintain its hometown feel.
It's got to stay that way," said
McNeal.
McNeal said he owes his
business success to the
support and help of his wife,
Patricia, and son, John Ray, as
well as his uncle, Jerry
Mainor, Marketing Manager
Kristen Wing, and longtime
employees.
"It's amazing the support I
get. It makes me feel good
inside," said McNeal,

Credit card fraud


For as long as there have
been credit cards, criminals have
used them to commit fraud.
Credit card fraud costs

Raiders end season


despite four


personal best times


at district

' Drew Burgett qualified for the

regional meet as an individual
By CLIFF OLSEN
Today Sports Writer
It was a bittersweet ending to the season
for the Santa Fe High School boys cross
country team at last Thursday's (Nov. 1)
Class 2A, District-3 meet at McKethan
Lake hosted by Brooksville Hernando.
Four of Santa Fe's top five runners each
posted personal best times but those standout
personal performances weren't good enough
as the Raiders failed to qualify for Saturday's
(Nov. 10) Class 2A, Region-2 meet.
Santa Fe finished ninth out of 15 teams with
the top eight teams advancing to the regional
meet. Although the Raiders, as a team, came
up short in their goal of advancing to the
regional meet for the third straight season,
they will still be represented.
Junior Drew Burgett ran a personal best
time of 17:39 to place 15th out of the 113-
runner field. Burgett grabbed the final spot as
the top 15 individual runners from the district
meet also move onto regionals.
"They were a little disappointed. Some of
them were excited they ran some good times
but they were disappointed they didn't finish
in the top eight," said Santa Fe head coach
Tommie Turner. "You can't be disappointed
from the standpoint that the kids ran their
hearts out, but it wasn't good enough. You
can't be disappointed with effort."
The coach said that the Raiders were really
fired up before the race and ready to go with

after P.K. Yonge .standout running
back Dre Maddox broke off a 25-
yard run on the game's opening play


from scrimmage, Newberry High
School head football coach Tommy
Keeler thought his team could be in
for a battle.
And even though P.K. Yonge
needed a win to keep its playoff
hopes alive, the Blue Wave showed
little fight.
The Panthers rolled up 556 yards
of offense and ran roughshod over


P.K. Yonge 56-7 in the District 4-2B
finale for both teams.
Antwan Ivey ran for 200 yards
(196 in the first half) on eight carries

Crusaders sink Raiders in sweep


ADAM BOUKARI/Alachua County Today
Santa Fe huddles Wednesday (Oct. 31) just before its second
gameagainst Bishop Kenny in their regional quarterfinal loss.


* Santa Fe eliminated
from playoffs
By ADAM BOUKARI
Today Sports Writer
JACKSONVILLE The
Santa Fe High School
volleyball 'team has faced
Bishop Kenny for three straight
years in the playoffs and for
three straight years the Raiders
have been eliminated by the
Crusaders., The most recent
loss came last Wednesday night
(Oct. 31) in Jacksonville, 25-9,


25-17, 25-9 in the Class 4A
regional quarterfinals.
The Raiders were forced to
play on the road in the
postseason after falling to
Middleburg in the Class 4A,
District-3 championship game
over a week ago.
The two teams squared off at
Jacksonville Bolles School due
to a gym scheduling conflict at
Bishop Kenny .(21-6). While
the change of site surely
impacted attendance for the
home-team Crusaders, they
didn't need much help on


Halloween night.
Bishop Kenny jumped out to
a 12-6 lead over Santa Fe (16-
12) to take command over the
opening game. Later, a Chelsea
Peal kill pulled the Raiders
back to within six, 15-9. The
Crusaders cruised from there,
collecting the final 10-points of
the game for the impressive
win.
"I felt like we had to get our
passing- game back in,"
explained longtime Raider head

Paddle battle


takes on new


twist
Ever since the commen-
cement of the Santa Fe-Fort
White football rivalry seven
years ago, there's been plenty of
subplots to write about this
game.
Enemy transfers, .half
brothers playing half brothers,
cousins playing cousins, friends
playing friends, lame-duck
coaches'coaching against lame-
duck coaches, you name it, the
Battle for the Paddle has had it.
So then, why in the world
would
Mikey let
you,. down
by not
coming up K
with a new
twist for
this year's
game?
Earlier
this year, MIKE DAROZA
w h e n Today Sports Columnist
Santa Fe
was conducting a coaching
search to replace the resigned
Scott Pritchett, one of the 20
some odd candidates who
received the "thanks, but no
thanks," was former Raider,
Gator and Arena Football
League standout Shea
Showers.
After helping Santa Fe to a
state title in '91 and Florida to a
national championship in '96.
Sho\\ers bounced around the
AFL from Iowa (Barnstormers
from '98-'00),to New York
(Dragons from' '01-'02) to
Grand Rapids (Rampage in '03)
to Tampa Bay (Storm in '04)
before hanging his playing
cleats up for good.
Even as the committee at
Santa Fe convened to inter\ iew
the candidates, rumors swirled
in and around Alachua that
Showers who recorded 22
career AFL interceptions was
all but a lock to become the
Raiders' next head coach.
Even sources; at that time,
were telling Mikey that
Showers was already contacting
a potential staff of assistant
coaches in anticipation of
landing the SF job.
Of course, now we know

Santa Fe can't stop Williston


i Red Devils pull away
late against Raiders in
home finale
By ADAM BOUKARI
Today Sports Writer
ALACHUA In their last
home game of the season
Thursday night (Nov. 1), the
Santa Fe High School football
team was trying to go out of
Raider Field with a bang..
However, the Williston Red
Devils had another idea in
mind, outpacing the Raiders 46-
26.
The two teams combined for
23 points in the final two
minutes of the first half on the
way to a 26-20 halftime game.
The Red Devils pulled away in
S.i


the second half with a
punishing offensive attack that
included 27 of 30 plays on the
ground for 151 yards. That,
coupled with poor offensive
execution by Santa Fe (2-7, 0-
4) with only

head coach Bart Brooks. "It's

After Williston (4-5, 2-2)
scored a touchdown and
recorded a safety early in the
first quarter, the visitors' Travis
Evans scampered 17 yards for a
touchdown and a 16-0 Red
Devil lead with 19.6 remaining
in the opening session.
On the ensuing kickoff, Santa
Fe answered with a 62-yard
kick return from senior K.J.
Carter. He put his team on the
Williston 35 yard line to set up
a four-play, 35-yard drive that
was capped by a 13-yard
touchdown run on an option
pitch to Deonte Merricks.

But Turner does say goodbye

"I just wish Drew well and

said. "I hope they all return next

On the girls side, Turner said
he was surprised by sophomore

55th overall out of 101 runners
with a time of 25:42. TenBroeck
finished first for Santa Fe in

"I think they ran hard and had
.decent times," Turner said. "I
thought they could have run

disappointed in their
performance."
Turner, who has not been able
to field a complete team with
the minimum five runners at

have his work cut out for him
next year. The veteran coach has
to say goodbye to Larsen,
Condo, Graeber and Alyssa

"I'm going to miss them
running because they have been
in the program for a long time,"
Turner said. "My goal for the
girls is to find six girls
somewhere. I have one coming
back, but I would rather have a
team."
But overall Turner is pleased
with how his boys and girls
teams fared this fall.
"I think we had a great
season. I'm excited with the
way the season ended with
Drew making the regional
meet," Turner said. "I'm excited
the way some of the girls
finished, especially Rebecca.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 08, 2007 B3


RICK BABSTONIAlachua County Today
Newberry head coach Tommy Keeler talks to his son Ben Friday night against the Blue Wave.
Keeler and the Panthers are one win away from a spotless regular season record.


PANTHERS:
Continuedfrom page B1

was 8-for-12 passing for 194
yards and three touchdowns and
ran for another in what was
Newberry's most balanced
game offensively this fall.
"Balanced or whatever you
want to call it, we just ran the
ball well, we passed well and
we played a great game," said
Keeler. "I think it was our most
complete game pf the year."
For the Blue Wave, Maddox,
who has surpassed the 1,000-
yard plateau this season, was
smothered all evening by
Newberry defenders and ended
up with just 41 yards on 17
carries. P.K. Yonge (4-5, 1-3)
which needed a victory and
some help from other teams in
order to have a shot at the
regional playoffs suffered what
head coach John Clifford said
was his worst loss in his 33
years as a football coach.
But early on, things looked
promising for the Blue Wave.
Maddox returned the opening
kickoff 24 yards and then
ripped off his 25-yard run. A 15-
yard penalty on the Panthers
was tacked on at the end of that
run and gave P.K. Yonge a first
down at the Newberry 35-yard
line. But then Blue Wave
quarterback Carlon Hunt threw
a pass down the near sideline
that was intercepted by Ryan
Brown who made an over the
shoulder diving grab.
From that point it was all
Newberry, which exploded for
28 points in the opening quarter.
Three plays later, Guy
Brown, working out of the
shotgun-set, found a wide-open
Matt Robinson with an 81-yard
touchdown pass as the Panthers
led 7-0 just over 1:30 into the
game. Just over three minutes
later, Ivey caught a swing pass
from Guy Brown and jetted 40
yards to the end zone before, his
59-yard scoring run made it a
21-0 game at the 4:22 mark.
Guy Brown's one-yard burst on
a quarterback keeper with 1:04
left sealed the impressive first
quarter.
Ivey, who has already topped


1,000 yards this season has
received a scholarship offer
from Wofford and Carson-
Newman and has generated
interest from Ohio University,
Middle Tennessee,. Florida
International, Florida A&M,
Campbell and Bethune-
Cookman. The all-state back
added dazzling 46-yard and 65-
yard touchdown runs to give the
Panthers a 42-0 second-quarter
cushion.
The lone bright spot for PK.
Yonge was the only glaring
mistake for the Panthers
defense. They held the Blue
Wave to 174 yards of offense,
forced six punts and three
turnovers on the night.
But Hunt found Johntavis
Mallary with a 63-yard slant
pass that got the home team on
the scoreboard, making it a 42-
7 contest just before halftime.
Newberry opened the second
half by chewing up almost four
minutes with a 10-play, 80-yard
drive capped off by Antonio
Brown's over-the-shoulder 35-
yard touchdown catch of a
nicely thrown ball from Guy
Brown. With 4:32 left in the
third quarter, Benny Hadley's
23-yard touchdown run put the
finishing touches on the
convincing win for Newberry.
"I told the kids to enjoy it this
weekend and have fun with it,"
said Keeler. "We're 9-0 right
now it's a great season and great
things have happened."
Robinson had two catches for
91 yards and the touchdown for
the Panthers, who have beaten
the Blue Wave two straight
seasons after a snapping a
seven-game losing streak with
P.K. Yonge last year. Phillip
Warner, who has received
interest from Florida
International, booted seven
extra points and sent five
kickoffs into the end zone for
touchbacks. This was also the
seventh time this fall that
Newberry has rushed for more
than 300 yards in a game and
the sixth time one of its contests
have featured a second-half
running clock.
"Coach said he was going to
onen things uo with the shotgun


RICK BABSTON/Alachua County Today
Newberry kicker Phillip Warner nails, one of his seven extra points
against PK. Yonge on Friday night.
'"* A-


offense, he told me he was
going to throw at least 12
passes. I've wanted to throw the
ball all year, but we've been
running a lot," said Brown, who
has excelled at operating the
offense this season. "It's real
fun (running the offense) when
you know you have weapons
like Kelo (Ivey), my brother
(Ryan Brown) and Matt
(Robinson)."
For P.K. Yonge, Hunt
finished 6-for-16 passing for
108 yards and the touchdown.
"I think last week (versus
Chiefland) we had a chance (at
making the playoffs) but we
made mistakes that cost us the
game," Clifford said. "Tonight
we didn't have the opportunity
to make mistakes to cost us the
game because we were just
completely outplayed. I didn't
think we could possibly play
that bad.".
On the injury front for the
Panthers, Keeler said that
running back/linebacker
Xavier Woods, who sat out
against P.K. Yonge, is expected
to play Friday night. Woods
sprained his ankle in three
different places against Ocala
Trinity Catholic, according to
Keeler.
Newberry will be eyeing its
first undefeated regular-season
record since 1987 as Williston
comes to Panther Stadium. The
Red Devils (4-5) come into
Friday's regular-season finale at
7:30 p.m. having won three
straight and four of the last five
meetings with the Panthers.
"It's the same thing (as last
year with both teams already
clinching a playoff spot) both of
us have to be concerned playing
the game and keeping players
eligible and healthy for next
week, it keeps it on an even
playing field," said Keeler,
whose club is also second on
the receiving votes list for the
Beef O'Brady's Top 25. "They
(Williston) have been playing
real good football except when
they were injured, but when
they are healthy they are a
pretty darn good football team."
Having already wrapped up
its first district title since 1998 it
was also determined from
Friday's results that the
Panthers will host Jacksonville
Trinity Christian (6-3) in a
regional-semifinal game on
Nov. 16th. Last fall the Panthers
dropped a tough 38-30 opening-
round decision to the
Conquerors in Jacksonville.
"It is a dream to have an
undefeated season but you have
to keep it all in perspective,".
Keeler said. "If we finish (the
regular season) undefeated it
will be a great celebration this
weekend."
Speaking of celebrations,
Keeler also said that
Newberry's Backyard BBQ is
hosting a block party,
celebrating the Panthers success
on the gridiron this season. The
event is scheduled for Thursday
at 6 p.m. The general public is
encouraged to attend the event.

RAIDERS from page B1

coach Michele Faulk. "Passing
was the biggest problem
because without the good pass
you couldn't gat any kind of
offense running. You've got to
give it to Bishop Kenny. They
are a very smart team; they see
the court well and exposed our
weaknesses very effectively."
The Raiders struggled getting
the ball to their setters most of
the night. Aggressive serving
from Bishop Kenny set the tone
for the match and put Santa Fe
operating most of the night
deep in the backcourt. Despite
the troubles in handling the
pace of the match, the Raiders
managed to make the second
game more competitive.
Bishop Kenny held a, 11-5
advantage early on and pushed
that lead 15-5 on a powerful
kill. A Pearl kill and ace closed
the lead back to eight points,
15-7. The Crusaders managed
to extend its advantage back to
double digits, 22-12. The
Raiders then went on a 5-1 run
behind the serving of Pearl and
setter Sydney Wilkerson.
Helping to whittle' away at the
Bishop Kenny lead in that stint
were an Ashley Rosenboom kill
and a Crusader hitting error.
The Raiders trailed 22-17, but
did not get any closer, dropping
the final three points of the
game.
"We had film on them, we
prepared mentally and did
everything we possibly could to
prepare and I honestly felt like
we had a good chance 'at
winning the game," said Faulk.
"It was difficult to watch, but
they were a much better team
and more solid.
"In the second game we did
make some adjustments and I
felt like we did step pur game
up.
The final game was much
like the first. Even the score
was the same. The. Raiders
appeared flat and looked
deflated as a team. The
Crusaders did not let up,
pounding the Raiders point
after point, including a nine-
point service run by the home
team. A Raider hitting error

Crusaders in Jacksonville on Wednesday.


ended the match for Santa Fe.
It was no surprise that the
Raiders' statistics for the match
were all but impressive. Santa
Fe managed just 16 kills all
night, five from Peal,
Rosenboom and Leah
Leventhal. The Raiders had
just three blocks all night
against the heavy hitters from
Bishop Kenny, all of which
came from Pearl. Junior
Stephanie Moser led in digs
with 12 and Rosenboom
followed closely with 11.
Meanwhile, New led the
visitors in assists with 10 while
fellow setter Wilkerson
recorded six. The one statistic
that stuck out like a sore thumb
for the Raiders was a whopping
20 passing errors.
While the Raiders have lost
their fair share of games this


season, Santa Fe's schedule has
been grueling as well, playing
top opponents all season long.
However, a first round exit in
the playoffs was not expected
by many. The Raiders returned
several starters this season and
had another year of experience
under their belts. Faulk says
that she feels disappointed in
the end result as well.
"It honestly was a let down,"
admitted Faulk. "'The good
thing is you kind of have your
program going in the right
direction when you're in the
playoffs but not going on is
disappointing; we do expect
that from our program every
year. We wanted to go a long
way but fell short."

DAROZA from page B1

Bart Brooks was eventually
selected to succeed Pritchett.
However, Showers wasn't
"unemployed" for long, ending
up over at Fort White as an
assistant to former teammate,
Demetric Jackson, who took
over for the departing Indians'
inaugural head football coach
Mike Hunter.
Mikey can certainly vouch
that Showers is not the kind of
guy to hold a grudge or
anything like that.
But, make no mistake;
Showers wanted the job at
Santa Fe.
And you can bet that deep
.lown inside the only thing he
vants more now is to do
whatever possible to show the
Raiders that they made the
wrong choice.

Just how crazy has it been?

If the 2007 season doesn't go
down as one of the most upset-
laden seasons in college
football history, Mikey surely
believes it will be regarded as
one of the wackiest.
In no particular order, here
are Mikey's wackiest moments
up to this point:

*Appalachian State upsets
Michigan in the Big House.
mA few weeks later Wofford
beat Appalachian State.
mA few weeks later, Elon beat
Wofford. Does this mean Elon
would be favored over
Michigan?
EAt one point or another South
Florida who only started
playing football 10 years ago -
and Boston College were
ranked No.2 in the country.
"At one point or another, South
Florida, South Carolina and
Kentucky were ranked ahead of
USC, Florida and Texas.
EStanford, who was a 41-point
underdog coming into the
game, beat USC on their own
field.
EFor the first time since 1996,
both the No.1 team (USC) and
No.2 team (Cal) lost in the
same weekend.
ENavy beat Notre Dame for the
first time since The Beverly
Hillbillies was the highest-rated
television show (43 years ago).
ENotre Dame is currently 1-7.
*#Kansas beat Nebraska 76-39
- in football folks, football.
EKansas is undefeated
.....STILL!!!

How could this crazy season
get crazier?

Simple, let the Ohio State
Buckeyes and (Mikey cannot
believe he's saying this, but..)
Kansas lose one between now
and the end of the regular
season.
That would actually bring
some normalcy back to college
football for once, by giving
nine out of the topl0 teams a
legitimate gripe to play for the
BCS championship in New
Orleans.
The following is the current
BCS top-nine, with their
current record in parenthesis,
and Mikey's gut feeling on
what might happen to them.

Ohio State (10-0); The
Buckeyes are actually a more
complete team then the one that
was spanked by the Gators in
the title game last season, but
will fall to Michigan in the
same stadium the Wolverines
succumbed to Appalachian
State earlier this year.

LSU (8-1); Please tell me that
Mikey isn't the only one who
feels like the Tigers are this
season's Florida from last year.
Let's see, strong defense,


talented offense, good use of a
two-quarterback system and a
schedule full of narrow escapes.
Hmmm. Sound familiar? If
(and it may be a big if) this
team survives the remainder of
the regular season (including
SEC title tilt) and gets four
weeks to get healthy and
prepare, it will be the 2007
nation champ.

Oregon (8-1); Yeah, yeah,
one of the hottest teams in the


country with one of the hottest
player/quarterback in the
country, with obviously one of
the hottest uniform combos in
the country, but why does
Mikey have such a hard time
thinking this team is one of the
top two teams in the nation? My
bet is the Ducks will trip against
underdog Oregon State in a
couple of weeks.

Kansas (9-0); If you've
checked any of Mikey's picks
over the past two weeks, you
know the Jayhawks have
proven me wrong. But, why
else would I have faith in a
team that carries a Sagarin
rating of 105 out of 119, has
only beaten one team with a
winning record (mighty Texas
A&M) and whose list of
"victims" this season have a
combined 35-51 record? Sure,
they're undefeated, but Mikey
predicts KU will lose at least
two before all is said and done.

Oklahoma (8-1); If/when
Ohio State loses, this could be
the team that faces LSU for all
the marbles at the end. With the
exception of their one, fall
asleep hiccup (blowing a 24-7
lead and losing 27-24 to
Colorado), the Sooners have
been untested. Oklahoma
should be favored against either
Kansas or Missouri in the Big
12 championship game.

Missouri (8-1); Mikey likes
this team, but the one team the
Tigers couldn't get it done
against will likely end up being
their opponent in the Big 12
title game (Oklahoma). Mizzou
is better than most folks realize,
but national championship
good? Nah.

West Virginia (7-1); If there
is a dark horse in this race, the
Mountaineers may just be it.
Their only loss was on the road
against one of the hottest teams
in the country (South Florida) at
that time. And, three of their
final four games are at home.
Mikey says keep an eye on this
team if this season's wackiness
continues' and enough teams
above it stumble.

Boston College (8-1); No
disrespect to the Eagles or
Florida State, but was there a
bigger fraud this season than
BC? Okay, I'll give you South
Florida, but at. least the Bulls
didn't receive Heisman hype
too. Boston College has been
nothing short of terrible in it's
last two outings. Blame it on
the rain if you want, but Mikey
says this team isn't done losing.

Arizona State (8-1); Mikey
actually likes the Sun Devils,
but just cannot bring himself to
believing he's actually having a
national championship
conversation that involves
ASU, at least yet anyway. Give
Dennis Erickson props for
getting this program off the mat
as quickly as he has, but this is
no national title contender.

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. Again, this is not who
Mikey thinks "should" win it,
but whom Mikey thinks the
"voters" Will pick.

1. Dennis Dixon / Oregon

Despite missing a portion of
the fourth quarter because of a
twisted left knee, Dixon
probably put himself in position
to be the frontrunner or at
least the next guy to be passed


by in the battle for the
Heisman Trophy, with his four-
touchdown performance in the
Duck's nationally-televised win
over previously undefeated,
No.4 Arizona State.

Pros: Dixon now has three
semi "Signature Wins" against
Arizona State, Michigan and
USC; He's certainly the best
player on one of the best teams
in the nation; Only hapless
Arizona, UCLA and Oregon
i'


State left on the schedule.

Cons: Even though he seems
to have recovered, some voters
may have a hard time forgetting
his turnover (three interception)
meltdown in Oregon's only loss
against Cal; Despite having
hapless Arizona, UCLA and
Oregon State left on the
schedule, a loss to any of them
would spell disaster for Dixon,
especially since OSU is a huge
rivalry game for Oregon, and in
these kinds of games, you can
throw the win/loss records out
the window.

2. Tim Tebow / Florida

Tebow may not even be the
best player on his team, but the
has been the clear-cut leader
and MVP thus far... maybe for
the nation as well. Who has
done more for their team than
Tebow has for UF? And, it
should still be noted that in
1956, Paul Hornung won the
Heisman while playing for a 2-
8 Notre Dame team.

Pros: Still the 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 10
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 garner; The shoulder
looks better, but with the
emergence' of Percy Harvin's
expanded role in the Gators'
offense, Tebow will have less
opportunity to show off.

3. Darren McFadden /
Arkansas

Mikey can admit that he had
given up hope on D-Mac
making a run at the bronzed
stiff arm, but after running for
321 yards on the Gamecocks
last Saturday, he at least
deserves to be on the short list.
And tell me, have you ever
watched a guy who had already
run for 220-plus and break off
an 80-yarder...without even
breathing hard?

Pros: No other back since.
perhaps Bo Jackson or
Herschel Walker (uh, both of
whom were Heisman winners)
has possessed the complete
package of strength, size and
speed as McFadden; As inept as
Casey Dick is at quarterback
for the Razorbacks, D-Mac will
have plenty of opportunity to
run the rock.

Cons: Some could point out
that McFadden's night, as
awesome as it was, came
against the 104th (out of 119)
rushing defense in America
(South Carolina); D-Mac has to
share that rock with another
"one of the best runningbacks
in the country" Felix Jones.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 08, 2007 B5


RICK BABSTONIAlachua County Today
Raider senior Chris Dixon takes off against Williston on Thursday at Raider Field. Dixon recorded an
interception in his team's loss to the Red Devils.


SANTA FE from page Bl

Raider sophomore kicker Collin
Mixon added the extra point to
close the gap, 16-7.
After the Santa Fe defense
forced a turnover on downs, the
Raiders took over possession on
their own 16 yard line. After a
negative rushing play and a
penalty, the home team was
forced to punt back to the Red
Devils.
Williston moved the ball
inside the Raider 10 yard line
but was forced to settle for a 24-
yard field goal to lead 19-7 with.
1:54 left in the opening half.
A 32-yard kickoff return by
Santa Fe senior Darrian Taylor
put his team near midfield to
kick off their next drive. Three
plays later, Frank Snead
connected with Leon Williams
for a 37-yard touchdown pass
down the middle of the field.
The Red Devils took just two
plays on their next drive for a
33-yard touchdown pass
completion to lead 26-13 with
40.7 left in the second quarter.
Santa Fe refused to just sit on
the ball in the final seconds, and
the gamble paid off. On its first
play, Snead hooked up with
junior wide receiver Jamal
White for a 42-yard catch and
run. Snead then found Taylor
on the next'play with a diving
end zone catch for a 20-yard
score. The Mixon point after
provided the six-point halftime
margin.
"Emotionally we played with


a lot of spirit and emotion,"
leveled Brooks. "That carried
us midway through the third
quarter. "One thing I saw was
we had a lot of seniors tonight
come out and make plays. They
wanted the game bad and I
wanted it for them."
After a three-and-out on the
Raiders' opening drive,
Williston orchestrated a nine-
play, 62-yard drive that was
capped by an Evans eight-yard
touchdown run.
The Red Devils recovered an
onsides kick and began moving
the ball deep inside the Santa Fe
red zone. That's when Santa
Fe's Chris Dixon came up with
a drive-killing interception and
a 25-yard return to the Raider
30 yard line. Three plays later,
the Raiders were approaching
the midfield line when the
visitors came up with an
interception of their own to stall
the drive.
The two teams traded
possessions before the visitors
scored on a two-yard
touchdown run.
Once again the home team
answered as Snead recorded a
34-yard completion to Williams
down the right sideline. Snead
then found another familiar
target with an 18-yard pass to
Taylor that the senior caught off
a deflection. Raider Will Scaff
came in at quarterback on the
next play and earned a 12-yard
touchdown on a quarterback
keeper, to pull to within 39-26
with 8:24 remaining in the
contest.


Williston tacked on the final
score on an Evans 35-yard
touchdown run just moments
later.
"I never thought it slipped
away. Our offense was moving
the ball well and we could do
pretty much anything we
wanted offensively,"
maintained Brooks. "As hard
as they (Santa Fe) played
tonight I thought if we had a
break here or there we could
turn things. With six minutes
left in the fourth quarter I
realized we dug ourselves into
too big a hole."
With the victory the Red
Devils earned a three-way tie
for the second spot in the
district and eventual playoff
berth. Santa Fe has one game
remailinig against Foni White
Friday\ night in the annual
"Battle Ibr the Paddle." The
game \~ll kickoff at ".310 p.m.
at Fort White.
"\\e'\e got to come out and
get read\ for Fort White." said
Brooks. "The e got to come
out and %\ant that more than
anything in the worldd. "

v --riew-by Mark-
~ JJ.b V V Vasto


Forthe better part of 40 years,
the general sluggish, couch-potato-
and-a-beer lifestyle that many
American football fans adopt on
Sunday afternoons comes to an
abrupt end once the telltale ticking
of the Aristo topwatch is heard.
The show one of the most
successful broadcasts in television
history is CBS' "60 Minutes." In
many ways, the show is a sport in
and unto itself. Like an NFL
linebacker at the top of his game,
we've watched Mike Wallace,
Morley Safer and the gang
summarily stuff the foes of truth;
chase down and sack those that
would evade their blitz of
journalistic goodness.
I know I'm dating myself a bit
here, but for as long as I've watched
football, I've always heeded the
announcers during the waning
minutes of the fourth quarter when
they've told me to stay tuned for


All that, and Andy Rooney


"60 Minutes" after the game. I had
a little crush on Lesley Stahl and
Diane Sawyer, I admit it. And I
* always enjoyed it when Steve Croft
would narrow his eyes and ask the
weekly do-badder, "You can't
seriously expect the audience at
home to believe that, can you?"
Maybe it was the juxtaposition
of styles. All day long, we'd be
listening to the analysts say the
.most banal things, award-winning
turns of phrase such as: "In order to
win, the Cardinals are going to need
to beat the Vikings" or "The team
that scores the most points in this
game is going to win, the one that
doesn't will lose." You had to have,
that suspension of disbelief to
actually listen to that sort of stuff
and pretend it meant anything
important.
Of .course that's the point 'of
football. It's a pastime; it's there to
help you pass the time. It's so easy
to understand: smash the guy in
front of you and carry the ball into
the end zone. And then "60


Minutes" would come on and make
you think that a rogue Audi was
about to crash through your sliding-
glass door at any moment, or that
you'd die from eating a polished
apple. That sort of made you
straighten up and fly right, didn't it?
That was the sort ofbuzzkill that got
you ready to face the workweek the
next day, right?
Just like a fleet-footed running
back behind his blocking fullback,
"60 Minutes" has scored by
following the NFL on the Sunday
night lineup. Thanks to contractual
demands by the NFL after an
'unfortunate airing of "Heidi" in
1968, NFL games are seen right
down to the final second of the
clock of the second game. For the
working American, that sort of
television is all that, a bag of chips,
and Andy Rooney, too.

sportswriter and publisher of The
Parkville (Mo.) Luminary.
