City may sue State over Watson retirement


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA It may seem odd, but
it could be true that the City ofAlachua
will take the State of Florida to circuit
court for a Division of Retirement
decision changing the retirement plan
of City Manager Clovis Watson, Jr.


Watson has not been
given a hearing in
front of the Division
of Administrative
Hearings (DOAH)
regarding the matter
although his attorney,
Watson Rod Smith, has been
requesting one since


July.
Joyce Morgan of the Florida
Division of Retirement replied. to
Smith at that time saying a hearing was
premature because no final agency
action had taken place. At issue was
Watson's continued enrollment in the
Special Risk Class retirement plan
because of his prior duties as a police


officer since 1983.
The latest fallout comes by way of
an Oct. 31 letter from Morgan, a
benefits administrator, who told the
city that Watson's request for
membership approval into the Special
Risk Class would have to be reviewed
by the Division or Retirement. Upon
declining his membership, Watson


would then have to appeal to the State
Retirement Commission.
Attorney Smith objects to the
division's contention that Watson
should appeal to become part of the
Special Risk Class that he was already
enrolled in. Instead, Smith said
Watson should be given a DOAH

$16.2

million to


alleviate


traffic on


SR 26

By DAN REID
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY With no
plan in place for improving
State Road 26, the City of
Newberry is looking at
refurbishing SW 30th
Avenue as a way to alleviate
traffic on the town's main
thoroughfare.
As part of a Memor-
andum of Agreement (MOA)
drafted by the city, Florida
Department of Transpor-
tation (FDOT) and Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA), Newberry is in
negotiations to improve SW
30th Avenue within the next
10 years. Improvements at a
cost $16,200,000 to SW 30th
Avenue include paving the
two-lane graded roadway,
making it a collector street.
In March 2006, the
FDOT determined that SR 26
was at maximum capacity
with 11,000 trips per day on
the road. While it is
unknown exactly how many
trips are traveled along SW
30th Avenue on a daily basis,
Newberry City Planner
Lowell Garret said the
majority of trips on the road
is from local traffic.
Within 180 days of the

Alachua biomedical



companies to merge


By ASHLEY CAIN
Today Reporter
A Nasdaq stock-for-stock
merger worth $263 million is
bringing together two of
Alachua County's largest
biomedical companies.
Regenerat i on
Technologies, Inc (RTIX) and
Tutogen Medical, Inc. (TTG)
announced a merger on
Tuesday that will take place in
the beginning of 2008,
pending approval by the
Securities and Exchange
Committees.


Both RTI and Tutogen are
based in Progress Corporate
Park in Alachua. The vast
majority of RTI's 500 and
Tutogen's 250 employees
work out of their respective
Alachua facilities. RTI brings
130,000 square feet from the
three buildings it owns in
Alachua to the merger, adding
significantly to Tutogen's
26,000 square feet of rented
building space.
Tutogen also has facilities
in Neunkirchen, Germany, and

Police officers on motorcycles led the parade of 1,400 bikers along a 17-mile route through
Gainesville Sunday afternoon as onlookers lined the streets showing their support for veterans.


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
GAINESVILLE For many people who sat
curbside on Sunday waiting for hundreds of
motorcycles to pass by, it was about the roar of
the iron horses as they rolled through the streets,
leaving a heart-pounding thunder in their wake.
But for the bikers themselves, Sunday was all
about veterans:
"It's not just about the bikers, it's about the
cause," said Bonnie Cameron, who helped start
the parade in 2000, just weeks after September
11.
Some 1,400 motorcyclists rallied for the


eighth annual Bikers on Parade for the USA
event. Starting the day off early, bikers gathered
at the Santa Fe Community College northwest
campus where they put down their kickstands
and mingled for a bit. On hand to emcee was
The Sky. 97.3's Bob Rose who introduced an /
array of guests including Alachua'County Sheriff
Sadie Darnell.
After opening comments at the community
college, bikers fired up their motors and set 6ut
on the 17-mile parade route winding through

Alachua Elementary gives


tribute to veterans


By DAN REID
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Alachua Elementary School
students and visiting military members were
treated to patriotic songs and stories as the
school celebrated Veterans Day during the
annual Bring a Vet event last Friday.
The chilly morning started with the Pledge
of Allegiance and The Star Spangled Banner in
front of the American Flag pole. After the
national anthem, students and teachers sang a
variety of songs about America. Once the songs
ended, each military veteran was recognized
individually, along with the student that brought
him or her to the ceremony.
Alachua Elementary art teacher Emilie
Puckett told students of the sacrifices military
personnel have made for the country, and
reminded them of how they are presently
protecting America overseas. She said the
school felt honored to be around the Veterans.

"It's wonderful to be around these American
heroes," said Puckett.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, a group of
students at the podium led the school through a
stirring rendition of God Bless the USA. During
the song, each student and teacher proudly waved
the American flag. After the ceremony, Veterans
were escorted to the cafeteria and treated to a
continental breakfast.
Retired Naval officer Wes Larson, who lives
near Keystone Heights, enjoyed being around
fellow veterans and swapping stories. "It was
great. We need to have more schools do this, so
kids can appreciate the freedoms they have," said
Larson
Alachua resident Ralph Balkcom, who is a
retired Coast Guard and Air Sea Rescue officer,
applauded the school's effort in raising
awareness of the privileges and freedoms that
children have in The United States. He said the
ceremony was heartwarming to him.
"It sort of left a lump in your throat," said
Balkcom.
Fourth grade student Paul Winner said his
favorite part of the event was when all the
veterans were announced. He felt the mentioning
of the names added a personal touch to the event.
Former Dean of Students at the school Cookie
Johnston said the purpose of the event is to bring

Special to Alachua County Today
Over 700 high school seniors
registered to vote this year through
the High School Senior Voter
Registration and Education
Program. This program is a
partnership between the Alachua
County Supervisor of Elections
Office and Alachua County private
and public high schools.
The Elections Office recently
completed visits to the county's
high schools registering eligible
students to vote and educating
seniors on the importance of their
participation in democracy.
Students also learned about the
electoral process and were provided
an opportunity to vote on
demonstration ballots and use the
optical scan equipment


"We are delighted our
partnership with the public high
schools is in its 13m year and
excited about our new partnership
with the private high schools in our
community. This partnership
allows us to play a role in
broadening students' understanding
of the democratic process and the
important role they will play as
future voters. Over 100 students
signaled a desire to become even
more involved by signing up to
serve as poll workers on Election
Day",' said Carpenter.
For more information on this
program or to become a poll
worker, please contact the
Supervisor of Elections at 352-374-

Ask Your Dentist by Dougas M.
AdeWatch, the coffee and doughnuts

Watch the coffee and doughnuts X


Q: Is there any harm in a
quick breakfast of coffee. and
doughnuts?
A: A nutrition-packed
breakfast is the best way to get
your day off on the right foot.
When it comes to nutrition,
there's not much in coffee and a
doughnut. Additionally, that
selection can damage your
teeth. Doughnuts are heavy in
sugar, which is a key
contributing factor to the
process that leads to cavities and
gum disease. The amount of
sugar and cream in your coffee
can also contribute to the
proliferation of cavity-causing
bacteria. And the tannins
contained in coffee can work


their way into tooth fissures and
grooves, leaving your teeth with
a rough, stained look.
If you absolutely can't avoid
that morning doughnut, eat it
quickly. The less time your teeth
are exposed to the sugar, the less
time the bacteria have to create
the acids that lead to decay. Of
course, if you have, to eat
breakfast on the run, you might
try switching from a coffee and
doughnut to a piece of fruit.
Ideally, sit down to a nutritious
breakfast of cereal and fruit and
give yourself time to brush and
floss before you leave for work.
Talk with your dentist about
ways to make your morning
routine more tooth friendly.

students and families together, along with
learning about the meaning of Veterans Day. She
added the ceremony instills a sense of patriotism
among students. When her generation was
growing up, Johnston said everyone knew what
Veterans Day stood for, and is hopeful the present
generation of children will understand the
holiday.
Puckett's art students designed the invitations
that each veteran received. She said her classes
enjoyed the work involved with the invitations.
"It gave them a great deal of pride," said
Puckett.
Dean of Students Cory Tomlinson said
holding events celebrating America's armed
forces is a vital part of communities throughout
the country. He noted the ceremony left an
impressionable mark on the students.
"It's fun to see the light bulbs go on inside the
student's head at that age," said Tomlinson.
Armistice Day, which remembered the efforts
of military personnel during World War I, was the
precursor to the annual Veterans Day holiday. In
1954, President Dwight Eisenhower signed
legislation that made Veterans Day a time that
citizens could reflect on the sacrifices and efforts
of the military.

Student's environmental efforts


win national recognition


Special to Alachua County Today
L-R: Dakota Herrera, Ashley Hughes, Crystal Hall, Anna Thrasher, and Joyce Heckerman at one
of the plastic bottle recycling bins they set up on campus.


Special to Alachua County Today
For the past few months, five
students at Newberry High School
have been working to get the
attention of their peers in an effort
to protect the environment. Now
their work is getting some national
attention as well.
The team is one ofjust 16 in the
nation to be recognized in the
Lexus Environmental Challenge
for land-related projects, a
competition sponsored by Toyota.
Seniors Dakota Herrera, Ashley
Hughes, Anna Thrasher, Crystal
Hall and Joyce Heckerman each
won a $500 scholarship and
teacher Cynthia Holland will
receive a $500 grant for a project
the girls developed to promote the
recycling of plastic bottles at their
school. They are also now eligible
to participate in the organization's
grand-prize challenge in January.
"I'm really excited that. we
made it this far," said Thrasher.
"Even if we don't win, we still did
something good for the
environment."
The girls' project came about
when they realized that sit least 180
plastic bottles were being thrown
away on campus each day, which
meant they ultimately ended up in a
landfill. The girlk built pla-siic bottle
.recycling bins and set them up in
key areas on campus. They then


encouraged their fellow students to
use the bins through videos, posters
and word-of-mouth. They're now
collecting several hundred bottles a
week.
Holland says the message is
getting through to the larger student
population because it's coming
from their fellow students.
"I can stand up there and
preach all day long, but when they
see their peers go out and doing
something, it gives them a sense of
empowennent," she said.
"It makes me very happy," said
Ashley. "People are paying
attention and they're definitely
recycling more."
While they continue with their
recycling project, the girls are
tackling additional work. The
Lexus Environmental Challenge is
also offering prizes for projects
focusing on air and water quality
and climate. The girls are creating
public service announcements on
water conservation that will air on
the Newberry cable channel and a
website that will be linked from the
city's website. They also plan to
develop and submit other projects
in the'next couple of months.
All of the girls have busy
academic, work and extracurricular
schedules, which means they must
find time after school, during lunch
or on weekends to work on their
projects. But Holland says they've

been very committed.
"They are really working for
it," she said. "They came together
and decided that this is what they ;
wanted to do, that they wanted to
reach a high level of achievement."
The girls also say they want the
benefits of what they've
accomplished to continue even
after they leave Newberry High
School.
"I want to come back and make
.sure 'they're still doing the
recycling and keeping up with all
the things we've done," said
Dakota. "And in my own personal
life, I want to make sure that I'm
still recycling and getting other
people to recycle."
"I'm sure everything we've
learned will follow us through
college and even work," said
Crystal. "We can keep it all going
as we move on."
Working on the projects has
helped the girls sharpen their
creative, academic, technology,
even teamwork skills. But there are
other, perhaps more significant
lessons they've learned through
their work.
-"It's not that hard to make a
difference," said Joyce. "It only
takes a small step in something
you're interested in, that you think
is important not just to your
community, but to the world."
"They see that one person's
activism can make a difference,
whether it's an environmental issue
or something else," said Holland.
"That's a big lesson they can carry
forward for the rest of their lives."

with the general public, VHS tapes have gradually been
phased out of the market. Thanks to High Definition
Television (HDTV), blu-ray DVD's are becoming a hit among
families that own state-of-the-art home theater systems. Blu-
ray enables viewers to watch a program with the highest
degree of clarity.
To help accommodate the diverse needs of customers,
MacKinnon, and his son Buck, who owns the Alachua
location, make customer service a priority among their 15
employees. Today, Video City has a selection of 22,000
DVD's to choose from between both stores.
According to Buck, he'll do everything possible to find an
item a customer is looking for.
"I'll hold their hand if I had to," he said.
Buck MacKinnon opened the Alachua store on U.S. 441 in
2003 after working for over a decade at the High Springs
location as manager. He said opening another store was a
golden opportunity to branch out on his own.

Over $74,000 raised


Mayor: City will revert to reporting

Watson in Special Risk Class


hearing as previously requested.
In a Nov. 7 letter to Morgan and the
Division of Retirement, Smith notes that he
and Watson previously objected to the
unilateral reclassification.
"Now the agency suggests that Mr. Watson
must request a reclassification from a
classification that he has steadfastly
maintained he should not have transferred into
by the agency in the first place."
"My client does not agree that his
automatic placement in the Senior
Management Services due to his acceptance
of an appointment to City Manager nullified
his rights...to elect to remain in the Special
Risk or Special Risk Administrative Class."
Smith also accused the Department of
Management Services (DMS), the parent
agency over the Division of Retirement, of
skirting the issues.
"Mr. Watson is concerned that DMS is
avoiding its obligation to give him the DOAH
hearing to which he is unquestionably
entitled."
But the strongest language in Smith's letter
to Morgan comes in the last sentence where it
states, "...If I do not receive notice by
November 19, 2007 of a Final Agency Action
letter or the acceptance and process of my
client's Petition for an Administrative
Hearing, I will seek appropriate relief in the
State Circuit Court."
Alachua Mayor Gib Coerper said in a Nov.
13 letter to Morgan that the city did not want
to infringe on Watson's due process rights.
"Accordingly, since the Division does-not


deem that this matter is important enough for
it to issue a final agency action, the City is
compelled to report Mr. Watson's retirement
in accordance with the Special Risk Class so
as not to violate any of his legal rights," the
Mayor wrote.
The battle between the City of Alachua
and the Florida DMS' Division of Retirement
has been ongoing since June.
It was then that Morgan notified Coerper it
would be reclassifying Watson from a Special
Risk Class to Senior Management Class, a
change that was retroactive to his appointment
as City Manager and constituted a drop in
lump sum retirement value from $1.2 million
down to $822,647. It also extended that date
at which Watson might retire.
The switch came after the Division
received a several years old copy of Watson's
employment contract from political activist
Charles Grapski and University of Florida
Attorney Joseph Little. The documents
included Watson's prior salary when
appointed to the City Manager position
several years ago. That salary has increased
over the years.
The DMS did not respond to Alachua
County Today with answers about why
Watson had not received a DOAH hearing, its
policy on making unilateral changes to a
member's retirement based on third party
information, or if other state retirement
participants might be subject to similar
actions.

Gainesville and ending at the Alachua
County Fairgrounds. At times, the
motorcycle brigade stretched upwards
of three miles from beginning to end.
Along the route, several area
organizations adopted corners as part
of a new element to the parade.
"It was so amazing that along the
streets and on the comer, there were
so many people out there to support
the bikers in honoring veterans.
"It's really hard to put into words,
but by having the boy scouts and girl
scouts adopting corners, it helps
children realize freedom isn't free," an
emotional Cameron said.
At the fairgrounds, bikers enjoyed
a concert party along with vendors -`
who brought their goods for sale and
show.
The day before the ride, law
enforcement agencies from around Thousands
the state held the third annual
motorcycle rodeo to benefit Bikers on
Parade for the USA, raising almost $500.
A.fifty-fifty drawing run by the local Red Cross
Chapter at the ride kickoff netted over $700 each to
the one lucky biker and Bikers on Parade for the
USA.
Sunday's event brought in over $74,000 for the
organization which will split the proceeds among
veterans groups and the local Red Cross chapter.
"For some of the organizations we help, the
money we give is all they need to operate all year
long.
"The more awareness we can raise not only
helps the motorcycle community which is so giving,
but it also gives the community at large a way to get
involved and help thank our heroes," Cameron said.
Bonnie Cameron, along with husband Ralph,
and friend Chuck Clemons developed the idea to

honor heroes of September 11, members of the
military, police, firefighters and paramedics in
2000. They conducted the first ride with 1200
motorcyclists and raising $10,000 just weeks after
the national tragedy.
"From the bottom of our hearts, Ralph and I and
our board of directors can't thank our sponsors
enough," said Cameron.
Bikers on Parade for the USA is an all volunteer
run not for profit. Its only expenses are the costs
related to putting on the annual ride.
"We get everything possible donated," Cameron
said, adding that the more than 100 volunteers work
to make the event successful.
Bikers on Parade for the USA will meet Dec. 2
to start planning next year's ride which is scheduled

a sales office in Boulogne,
France.
RTI and Tutogen's
biomedical companies focus on
the sterilization of recovered
human and animal tissue,
primarily from cattle and pigs,
to be used in reconstructive
surgical procedures.
RTI processes biological
tissue into precisely shaped
forms, such as screws made out
of bone, while Tutogen markets
implant grafts for dental, spinal
and other surgical procedures.
Together, the companies


will provide an increased
production of sterile biological
materials for patients around the
world, incorporating both RTI's
BioCleanse and Tutogen's
Tutoplast tissue sterilization
processes.
"When comparing the
similarities between Tutogen
and RTI ...it is easy to see how
these two companies will fit
very nicely together," said Brian
K. Hutchison, RTI chairman,
president and CEO in a
company press release.
Other biotechnical


industries in the Park are also
having positive feelings about
the merger. Patti Breedlove,
assistant director at Sid Martin
Biotechical Incubator, said she
was delighted by the merger.
"We agree there's a lot of
synergy between the two
companies. We've watched
them grow over the years and
we feel this is a very exciting
step for the Park," Breedlove
said.
"I believe the merger will
draw increasing attention to the
park and to the rapidly growing


resources the park has," she
said.
Randy Scott, CEO of
Novamin, agreed with.
Breedlove saying the merger
will help draw attention to
Alachua and add to its
credibility as a biotechnical
community.
"It keeps most or all of the
jobs here and it helps [the
biotech companies] having the
presence of a larger entity
headquartered here," Scott said.
Founder and CEO of
AxoGen, Inc. Jamie Grooms


also expressed his enthusiasm
over the merger between the
two companies.
"I think it's a. fantastic
move...something that should
have been done years ago,"
Grooms said.
"Locally what we're
counting on is that [RTI and
Tutogen] continue to be
successful and to significantly
expand this technology to really
put Alachua on the map."
As the former CEO and
.founder of RTI, Grooms'
excitement about the merger


was more than just professional.
Not only did Grooms co-invent
some of RTI's major products,
he also went to Germany where
he learned about the Tutoplast
process and brought Tutogen
Medical. Inc. to Alachua.
"It's really5 exciting for me
to ee t\\o companies I've

basketball team's' season-
opening game against Dixie
County on Tuesday night
featured sloppy play, bad shots
and a lot of turnovers.
But some of that could be

who hit the court for the first

who saw major playing time for


last year's club that advanced
to the regional semifinals.

After posting a personal
best time of 17:39 to earn a
15th place finish at last
week's District 3-2A meet,
Santa Fe's Drew Burgett had
high expectations for this past
Saturday's Region-2 meet.
The junior was looking to
turn in another personal-best
time and qualify for the Class
2A state meet which would
have given Santa Fe back-to-
back state meet qualifiers for
the first time in the 21 years


Tommie Turner has been the
cross country and track and
field coach at Santa Fe.
However, it wasn't meant to
be.
Burgett was slowed by a
cramp in his side that caused
him to post an
uncharacteristic time of 21:13
and finish 93rd out of the 101-
runner field at the Class 2A,
Region-2 meet at Chain of
Lakes Park in Titusville.
"It was a shame to have that
kind of time at the race that
mattered most," said Burgett,
who believes he developed
the cramp from not drinking
enough water or eating too

Newberry Head Coach Tommy

If not, let Mikey educate

Just three short seasons ago,

was an all-time low.

most importantly, wins were

In 2005, Keeler's first year at
the helm, Newberry was a
meager 2-8.
In 2006, the rs finished
the season 6-5, losing their
playoff appearance to
Jacksonville-Trinity Christian.
This season, Newberry has
.steamrolled just about everyone
on the schedule, blasting out a
10-0 record while averaging
nearly 40 points (39.5) per
game and an overall average
winning margin of nearly -30

Well done, fellas, well done.
So, if you want to get a

for coaches not to cry foul at the
calls or non-calls referees,
umpires or judges make during
sporting events.
Santa Fe's Bart Brooks is one
of those smart guys.
And, while Mikey agrees
with this custom 99.9% of the
time, he also knows when
something is rotten in Denmark,
or in this case, Fort White.
Now, before the hate-emails
come rolling in, Mikey means


no disrespect to Fort White
coaches, players or fans when
he says there were not only
some terrible calls made in last
Friday's Santa Fe/Fort White
"Battle for the Paddle," there'
were some atrocious calls that
seriously altered the outcome of
that contest.
Sure, both teams were
flagged the exact amount (10
times), but it was when the
Raiders were penalized.
Two issues that will forever
pop in Mikey's mind when
looking back on this game will


be that all the suspicious calls
seemed to come in the
defensive backfield (pass
interference calls), and each
time the flags were rather late
arriving.
This isn't the first time I
questioned high school refs, and
that is not my point.
Mikey's point is simple this:
Let the kids who. sweat through
two-a-days in the brutal early
fall heat and each day at
practice determine the outcome
of the games, not the guys
throwing the hankies.

wouldn't even be having this

Chapter Five by Kav Hivelv
It was a sad mess that Emily and her mother had to clean up
under the clothesline. All the hard work that had been done to
wash the clothes had been now wasted. As Emily gathered up
the muddy clothes, all she could think about was what a bad
day it had turned out to be. Being lost in a cave was bad and
now all the clean laundry was ruined.
With the willow basket full of dirty clothes, Emily and her mother
started back to the house. But, once again, Emily heard people
running up the alley. This time it was Sherirf Martin with several
,men, all carryinra guns.
The sheriff called out to Emily and her mother, asking if they had
seen two men fleeing up the alley. Mrs. Todd said that two men
had rushed through the yard and sent all her laundry into the dirt.
She told the sheriff that if he caught the men, he should bring
* them back to her house and make them do the wash again.
But the sheriff was not interested in dirty laundry. He said the
two men had robbed the bank of almost all the money in town.
As Emily listened to the shirt, she thought about how glad she
had been to be rescued by the two men. Now what should she
do? They had saved her life. Should she help the sheriff find them
and put them in jail?
Finally, Emily spoke up and told the sheriff that she might know
where to find the men. He asked Emily to take him and his posse
up to the cave where the robbers might be hiding. Emily said she
couldn't lead them to the cave because her mother would not
let her leave home.
Desperate to catch the men and get the money back, the sheriff
told Mrs. Todd this was important to the entire town. The sheriff
promised to take care of Emily and make sure she didn't go into
any cave or get hurt in any other way. He said he would take
care of her the same as he would his own daughter.

she agreed to let her go with the sheriff up to the bluffs.

- never won the award.
Of all the numbers you've
been force-fed about Tebow so
far, Mikey would wager you
haven't thought about the
following.

46-of-75 passes for 595
yards, four touchdowns and
two interceptions

And...

127 yards and four TDs on
48 carries

These numbers, my friends,
are Tebow's numbers in the
games the Gators lost (Auburn,
LSU and Georgia).
My point is, even when
Florida was losing, or better yet,
when Tebow was injured, the'
kid still had stud numbers.
Look, Mikey totally gets why
there is a love-hate relationship
abroad for Tebow.
It's no different than when
nearly everyone got so sick of
hearing Peyton Manning's
name when he was at
Tennessee.
Truth is, Tebow already has
better numbers than Troy Smith,
last season's Heisman winner,
and Tebow's got a minimum of
three games left to play this
year.
Throw in the fact that he's
breaking records that are
formerly headed by names such
as Emmitt Smith and Herschel
Walker and no one can convince
me that Tebow should not only
be considered for the award, but
he should be the clear favorite at
this point.
As for the guy who
apparently is the frontrunner at
this point, senior Oregon
Duck's quarterback Dennis
Dixon?
Dixon has passed for 2,074
yards and 20 TDs, and rushed
for 549 and eight TDs against
the fifteenth-toughest schedule
in the country.
Tebow has passed for 2,532
yards and 23 TDs, and rushed
for 718 yards and 19 TDs
against the second-toughest
schedule in the country.
You tell me.
If Tebow was a senior, would
we even be having this
discussion?

39 to Kansas, one week ago) by
37 one week, and win by 42
(73-31 against Kansas State this
past Saturday) the next.
Bravo 'Huskers, you pulled.
off the impossible.,
It'll be a bigger miracle if
Nebraska's head coach Bill
Callahan retains his job past
New Year's Day.
If those numbers aren't mind-
boggling enough, what about
the score from this past
Saturday's game between North
Texas and Navy and what it
says about Notre Dame?
The Midshipmen outlasted
the Mean Green, 74-62 (136,
the most points ever scored in
regulation).
The stat that really puts things
into perspective is the 62 points
North Texas hung up on Navy.
Remember, this is the same
Navy team that Notre Dame
was only able to score 44 points
on IN THREE
OVERTIIMES!
After losing to two service
academies in the same season
for the first time in history,
Charlie Weis is probably glad
the Coast Guard (or VFW Post
#9229, for that matter) isn't
currently fielding a team.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY SPORTS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2007 Dt
,, --II r a


RICK BABSTON/Alachua County Today
Panther running back Antwan Ivey picked his way through the Williston defense to the tune of
256 yards on 18 carries while scoring two touchdowns.


BURGETT:
Continued from page BI

much the day before the race.
"If I had a good time I still
would have felt that I would
have ended the season on a
good note, but this is very
disappointing."
Turner said Burgett was
running well for the first mile
and said that his top runner was
in good position. But the coach
knew something was wrong just
after the two-mile mark.
"He usually picks it up in the
middle of the race, but this time
he wasn't," Turner said. "At
about the last mile he started
dropping back. I could see it in
his face that he was hurting and
struggling."
Burgett, who was running in
his third regional meet but his
first as an individual qualifier,
said his first mile wasn't as fast
as he wanted, but that it was
still fine. But by the second
mile he said he knew he wasn't


running the kind of race he
needed to run at the event which
was hosted by Titusville
Astronaut.
"The cramp itself started in
the third mile, it just took over,"
said Burgett, who recalled
dropping out of a race last
season due to the same
problem. "It really took hold of
me at the end of the race, every
time I took a step my entire
abdomen got real tight."
Hernando's Tyler Maier, who
won last week's individual
district title, posted a time of
16:19 to claim the individual
regional title as well. Crystal
River, which won last week's
district title as 'a team, also
finished atop the boys standings
at the regional meet.
Although Burgett would have
followed former Raider Chris
Trebilcock, who finished sixth
at last year's Class 2A state
meet, failing to qualify was not
the biggest issue of the day for
Burgett and Turner.


PANTHERS:
Continued from page B1

"That is special, everything
that has been happening all year
has been extremely special,"
said Newberry head coach
Tommy Keeler of the first
undefeated regular-season he
has experienced in 13 years as a
football coach. "We've been
blessed all year, everything has
just been coming together for us
so far. I have had a great time, it
has been a fantastic year."
After Newberry forced the
first of five Williston punts on
the night, the home team drove
57 yards on seven plays on it
first possession. Ivey's eight-
yard touchdown run in which he
dove over the goal line as he
neared the sideline gave
Newberry a 6-0 lead at the 7:42
mark. With just under a minute
remaining in the opening
quarter Brown ran untouched
28 yards up the middle on a
quarterback keeper to make it a
12-0 game as Newberry's two-
point conversion attempt failed.
Benny Hadley's four-yard
plunge into the end zone pushed
the lead out to 19-0 with 6:38
left in the second period before
the Panthers opted to go to the
air. Guy Brown found his
younger brother Ryan Brown
with a 56-yard touchdown pass
for the comfortable 26-0
cushion.
Thep nna first-half hichlioht


for the Red Devils came when
Deonte Welch made a one-
handed grab in stride of a Devin
Timmons pass before he bolted
80 yards to make it a 26-7 affair
with 4:11 left until the
intermission.
Ivey, who has ran for 1,841
yards this season, answered
with his 26th rushing
touchdown this fall. He scored
from 16-yards out and
intercepted a pass off a
deflection a short time later as
Newberry led 33-7 at the break.
Guy Brown (22-yard run) and
Hadley (34-yard run) each
scored their second touchdown
on the night in the third quarter
which capped Newberry's
seventh offensive effort of more
than 40 points this season.
Timmons provided the eventual
final margin as he found C.J.
James who turned a short
reception into an 80-yard
touchdown for Williston with
7:05 left.
"Our defense has been
playing great all year, it's been
nice to have this balance
between the offense and
defense," Keeler said.. "The
defense has been taking care of
business and
the offense has been doing
the same thing. The secondary
made a few mistakes out there
but they make up for it with the
picks and the sacks."

shutdown Williston's running
game as the Red Devils only
had 49 yards on the ground.
Travis Evans, Williston's top
back was smothered for most of
the night and held to just 16
yards on eight carries.
Timmons did- pick on the
Newberry secondary a bit,
throwing for 285 yards on 10-
for-23 passing. While he did
have two scoring passes of 80
yards each, he was also
intercepted three times. Ivey
had the one pickat the end of
the first half, before Antonio
Brown made an acrobatic play
to catch one of Timmons'
passes before catching another
off a deflection late in the game.
Ryan Brown ended with two
catches for 71 yards and the
touchdown, while also carrying
the ball twice for 54 yards in the
win. Hadley finished with 40
rushing yards on six carries and
the two touchdowns for the
Panthers, who have now had a
second-half running clock in
seven games this fall.
Phillip Warner was 5-for-6 on
extra points, sent eight kickoffs
into the end zone for a
touchback and also drilled a 54-
yard punt in the win. The senior
kicker also came out and
attempted a 56-yard field goal
with about eight minutes left in
the game. His kick fell a little
short of landing inside the lower
left corner of the goal post.
For Williston, James had
eight receptions for 196 yards
and the touchdown in the loss.
On the injury front for the
Panthers, senior Xavier Woods
dressed against the Red Devils
but did not play, thus missing
his second straight game with
an ankle injury. According to
Keeler, Woods practiced on
Monday and Tuesday and he is
expected to play on both sides
of the ball at running back and
at linebacker on Friday against
Jacksonville Trinity Christian.
"I'm happy and I'm proud
but I have this feeling that it
isn't over yet," said Keeler,
whose club suffered a tough
opening-round loss at Trinity
Christian last year. "One season
is over and a new season is
beginning."

"I wasn't too disappointed
that he didn't qualify for state
but he wanted to beat his
personal best time," Turner
said. "But I'm proud of his
season, he had a great season."
As for Burgett, he is
continuing to put in work as he
ran seven miles on Tuesday
afternoon. In the spring he is
expected to run the 3200-meter
event for the Raiders track and
field team.
He is also looking forward to
next-fall, as Santa Fe graduates
just two seniors and is expected
to return its top five runners for
next year.
"I think next year we could
have the best cross country
team that coach T (Turner) has
ever seen," Burgett said. "I
would like to go to state (next
year) and I would like the whole
team to go regionals."

interference penalties during
Fort White's drive, and at one
point, causing the Raiders head
coach Bart Brooks to fling his
headset onto the field.
"It wasn't just the calls, it was
when they happened," Brooks
said, clearly biting his lip short
of faulting the officials on some
critical plays.
"They seemed to happen at
the most crucial times. Give
Fort White credit, they have a
good football team and they did
what they had to do to win, but
some of those calls at crucial
times really killed us."
Despite the frustration
overflowing on the Santa Fe
sideline, the Raiders showed the
game wasn't over yet.
The Raiders' K.J Carter
received the ensuing kickoff at
his own five yard line and
quickly zigzagged his way to
the 50 yard line.
Eight plays later, from the
Indians' 15 yard line, Santa Fe
quarterback Frank Snead threw
an incomplete pass to a diving
Leon Williams as time expired
that ended the comeback
attempt as well as the season for
the Raiders.
"I hate it for the seniors,"

The win gives the Indians a
5-3 edge in the relatively young
rivalry series, and a third
consecutive victory over Santa
Fe, marking the first three-game
streak in the "Battle for the
Paddle."
Early on it looked as though
the Raiders might turn the
tables on Fort White when
Santa Fe defensive lineman Joe
Carney sacked Gilmer in the
end zone for a safety.
Four plays later, Merricks
bulled across the goal line from
1 yard out, but kicker Collin
Mixon's extra point try was
blocked by the Indians' Joseph
Harris, leaving the Raiders with
an 8-7 lead.
Fort White had scored first on
Alex Blake's 9-yard run with
9:42 showing in the first
quarter, but in the span of 93
seconds, Santa Fe had scored
twice and held the lead.
But shortly thereafter is when
the Raiders costly mistakes at
the most crucial of times began
to unravel.
Santa Fe's defense had the
Indians stopped on a fourth-
iand-8 play inside Raider
territory, and appeared to cause
a turnover when Will Scaff
leapt up in front of Fort White
receiver and came down with
an apparent interception.
But a late flag was thrown at
the end of the play, ruling that
Scaff had interfered with the
receiver, gift-wrapping'a new
set of downs for Fort White at
the Raiders' 10 yard line.
Just two plays later,. the
Indians' Xavier Blake who
registered a game-high 157
yards and a TD on 26 carries -
ran untouched into the end zone
to give Fort White a 13-8
advantage with just 1:24 left in
the first half.
Again, thanks to a 37-yard
pass from Snead to Keenan
Jenkins Santa Fe quickly
moved as far as the Indians' five
yard line in a matter of seconds.
And yet again, another Raider
mistake, this time Alexis Blake
- Xavier's brother intercepted
a Snead pass in the end zone on
first-and-goal, came at another
very untimely moment.
Santa Fe would eventually
regain the lead with 3:26 to go
in the third quarter on another
Merricks' TD run.
This time Merricks who
finished with 91 yards and two
TDs on 16 carries, set up his 8-
yard scoring run with runs of
nine and 36 along the drive, but
couldn't stuff it into the end
zone on the two-point
conversion run, leaving the
Raiders with a slim 14-13 lead.
"What a great year he
(Merricks) has had," Brooks
noted.
"Looking back, like some of
the other seniors, I don't know
what we would have done
without him.
"Now, it about getting into
the weight room and building
strength on the offensive and
defensive lines. That is the key
to our future."

steals in the win for the
Panthers.
"We couldn't start the season
any better (than with a district
win)," said Newberry second-
year coach Scott Frisina, who
guided the Panthers to a 12-17
mark last season and to their
first regional playoff
appearance since 1995. "We
had two returning players play a
lot last year, yeah I'm happy
with this (win). We had 11 kids
who have never played varsity
basketball before and four are
freshman. We are very young."
Newberry's youth and
inexperience showed at times
but so it did its athleticism and
scrappy play. The Panthers
trailed 8-4 after the opening
eight minutes of action but
turned it on to start the second
quarter. Ross scored six of her
10 points in the period as
Newberry went on a 14-2 run to
take an 18-10 lead at the 2:40
mark. Nattiel also netted five
points in the quarter as the
home team carried a 21-16 edge


pressuring us we started getting
more ball movement."
Freshman Makaya Stacy
dropped in six points for the
Panthers, who shot 3-for-ll
from the foul line and did not
hit any three-pointers on the
,night.
For Dixie County, Sprawling
finished with 10 points,
including a pair of three-
pointers and eight rebounds
while Kayla Clemens followed
with nine points in the loss.
"I really like this team, I like
these kids and I want to see
them do well," Frisina said.
"They're good kids and they
come willing to work hard."
Newberry returns to action on
Monday as Chiefland comes to
town for a district game at 6
p.m. The Panthers were
scheduled to host Keystone
Heights on Friday (Nov. 16th)
but the game was cancelled to
the Newberry football playoff
game on the same night.

into halftime.
The Bears (0-1, 0-1) pulled
within 26-24 with 3:59 left in
the third period after Kayla
Clemens scored four straight
points. But that would be the
closest Dixie County would get
the rest of the evening.
Newberry responded with a 10-
1 run that closed out the third
quarterand extended to the 6:40
mark of the fourth quarter. Five
different players scored during
the run as the Panthers led 36-
25.
Jada Sprawling nailed a jump
shot from the top of the key to
pull Dixie County to within 40-
34 with 2:02 left, but Chelsea
Hall's free throw and Jaquinta
Wiggins' fast break lay up put
the finishing touches on the win
for Newberry.
"The first half, I wasn't
happy with our effort at all, we
were jogging and we weren't
going hard. I think we picked it
up in the second half," Frisina
said. "We need to play our game
and they (Dixie County) were
standing around in a zone
which made us stand around on
offense. When they started

Speed channel: Racing


Fans' best friend


At my recent high-school
class reunion, one of my dearest
friends growing up, who is now a
federal judge, said: "Greg, I have
only two channels on my
television preset: one is a news
channel, and, the other is Speed
TV."
The judge is a huge Formula 1
fan, enjoys Dave Despain's "Wind
Tunnel" and is the proud owner of
four motorcycles and an Alfa
Romeo. Following his comments,
a discussion ensued, and before
long, our entire table was talking
about Speed TV and the growth of
motor racing as a major sport.
This experience is a
compliment extraordinaire for
what once was a struggling cable
TV network, and a vote of
confidence by people from all
walks of life as to motor racing's
strength as an accepted sports
powerhouse.
Speed began broadcasting
back in 1996 as "Speedvision"
under the efforts of founder Roger
Wemer. However, due to a lack of
programming and, more
importantly, advertisements, there
were many who felt the channel
would never make it.
When I interviewed Werner
back in early 1996, I was amazed
at his tenacity and passion for
what "Speedvision" could be. The
dedicated executive indeed had a
vision, yet had to fill his "ad sales
air time" with old black-and-white
foreign-car commercials because
he had no real money-paying
advertisers for the slots. His hopes
centered on aligning himself with
good sanctioning bodies and
partners along the way that would
help bring his ideas to fruition.
I asked if he felt he was out in
the deep sea paddling away in a
rowboat all by himself, hoping to
be rescued by a passing vessel?
I remember he said yes, but
that it would be worth it in the end.
Soon, Werner was not alone in
that rowboat. As founder of both

able to deliver consistent ratings
increases in this challenging
environment is significant."
Erik Arneson, Speed's vice
president of media relations, said
that according to Nielsen Media
Research, Speed added 1.6
million U.S. households in the
past two months, pushing the
network total to 73 million homes.
SPEED also will make the move
to High Definition in February
2008.
Today, Speed holds Wemer's
initial vision close in its
programming dogma, and offers
everything from racing to
restoration and motorcycles to
movies. Be it the track or the
garage, Speed delivers.
Thanks, Mr. Werner, for
keeping the station alive until Mr.
Murdoch's Fox TV "cruise ship"
came along. (See
www.speedtv.com for complete
programming listings).

"Speedvision" and "Outdoor
Life" networks, he developed
associations and partnerships
with investors like Cox,
Comcast and ATT
(MediaOne). The network's
first full day on the air was
Jan. 1, 1996, and it aired the
24 Hours ofLe Mans live that
year along with live IRL
qualifying.
By 2001, Werer's
Speedvision and Outdoor Life
achieved profitability as
planned on combined revenue
of more than $100 million.
Werner and his partners sold
their company tol Rupert
Murdoch's News Corporation Sp
in 2001, and it was renamed We
Speed Channel as a division
of Fox Sports.
Fox, not surprisingly, began
beefing up live race coverage,
including NASCAR, Formula 1,
ARCA, motorcycle, rally, monster
truck and other events, in addition
to adding novel original
programming. From the popular
"Lost Drive-In" theater (a Wemer
original idea), which features
auto- and racing-related movies,
to today's highly popular "Pinks,"
"NOPI," "Back in the Day" with
Dale Jr., and the Barrett-Jackson
auto auctions (to name just a few),
Speed continues its impressive
growth curve.
Currently, SPEED continues
as one of America's fastest-
growing sports networks. Ratings
for the NASCAR Craftsman
Truck Series race at Martinsville
recently were up a stunning 18
percent, according to Nielsen
Media Research. The increase
continues an overall trend on
Speed, as the last three Craftsman
Truck races all have enjoyed
ratings increases, with the most
noteworthy growth among
younger audiences.
"These numbers are
encouraging," said Speed
President Hunter Nickell. "To be

back of their minds this Friday
when the two teams will meet
again to begin the 2007 playoffs.
However, this year's match up
is a little different from last
season as Newberry owns a
perfect 10-0 regular-season
record this fall, its first
undefeated regular season since
1987. The Panthers also captured
the District 4-2B title, their first
district championship since 1998,
which is also the last time they
enjoyed a win in the postseason.
Newberry will host the District 3-
2B runner up Conquerors (7-3)
this Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the first
playoff game at Panther Stadium
since 1998.
Last season, Newberry was the
district runner up and had to
travel to Trinity Christian, who
had won its district. Although the
roles are reversed and the
location of the game is different
many of the key players from last
year's meeting are back.
"It is great thing right now
because last year we were 6-5
and now we're 10-0. It all started
last year when we became so
hungry after we lost that real
close game to Trinity Christian,"
said Panthers quarterback Guy
Brown, who was 4-for-7 passing
for 72 yards and a touchdown and
ran for 81 yards and a score in last
year's meeting. "It's good but we
want more, I feel like we owe this
team (Trinity Christian)
something because they jumped
out on us early and we came back
and played real good. 1 wouldn't
want to play anybody else first."
The Panthers get a Conquerors
team that returns its key
components from its effective
Wing-T offense that totaled 250
of their 345 rushing yards in the
first half of last year's meeting.
Jamie Harper, Scout.com's
seventh rated running back
prospect, who has generated
interest from Florida, Clemson,
Central Florida, FSU, Illinois,
Minnesota and South Carolina is
back as is fellow running back
Montel Harris, who has
committed to Duke.


That duo combined for 318
rushing yards and three
touchdowns last year against the
Panthers, who had a late
opportunity to tie the game after
facing a 20-point deficit at
halftime. Also, add in
quarterback Marvin Ross, who
has also received interest from
several major Division-I schools,
and the Panthers defense looks
like it could have their hands full.
'This is a good team, their 7-3
record doesn't really tell what
kind of team they really are. They
are a very good three-loss team
there is no doubt about it," said
Newberry head coach Tommy
Keeler, who is also looking for
his first playoff-win in 13 seasons
as a head coach. "We have to play
well, but we've been playing well
all year so it's not a whole lot
different from a lot of the other
teams we've faced."
Trinity Christian is also no
stranger to the postseason as this
is its 13th straight appearance in
the .regional playoffs under head
coach Verlon Dorminey. In
addition, the Conquerors were
the Class 2A state runners up in
1999 before capturing the Class
1A state championship in 2002
and 2003.
In 10 games this season, the
Conquerors have outscored their
opponents 380 -
108.
Conversely, Newberry has
outscored its opponents 395-72,
which has included three
consecutive shutouts at one point.
The Panthers offense has also run
for more than 300 yards in eight
games this season, while seven
games have featured a second-
half running clock.
All-state running back Antwan
Ivey, who has 1,841 rushing
yards and 26 touchdowns leads
what Keeler calls a very mature
group. Ivey has scholarship offers
from Wofford and Carson-
Newman and has generated
interest from Ohio University,
Middle Tennessee, Florida
International, Florida A&M,
Campbell and Bethune-
Cookman.
While Ivey is the most
publicized Newberry player, the


Panthers have received
contributions from other running
backs Xavier Woods, Benny
Hadley and Ryan Brown, while
Guy Brown has done a good job
of running the offense this fall.
Seniors Ben Keeler and Freddie
White along with junior Steve
Whitmer have anchored the
offensive line, while Alex
Coppock has provided a presence
from his defensive end spot. Josh
Pardo, Woods and Hadley
comprise a linebacking corps that
has run down opposing ball
carriers this fall while a
secondary of Matt Robinson,
Antonio Brown, Ivey and Ryan
Brown have caused problems
from opposing signal callers.
"We definitely want to have
home field advantage in the
playoffs, there is no doubt about
that because you don't have to
make that hour and a half trip on
a bus and you have your home
crowd," Keeler said. "Every time
you get into the playoffs it is a big
game because you have to win,
that's the bottom line."
If the Panthers, who are ranked
third in Class 2B, can top the
Conquerors, they would face
Ocala Trinity Catholic (6-4) or
Jacksonville Episcopal (7-3) in
the Region 2 final on Friday Nov.
23rd at 7:30 p.m.
This year also marks the first
time the Panthers have advanced
to the playoffs in back-to-back
seasons since they accomplished
the feat in 2000 and 2001.
"When we started way back
when in the kickoff classic we
really decided to treat every game
the same and we've actually been
able to do that," Keeler said.
"Now very rarely does that ever
happen, but this a special group
of kids, this is a special team how
we approach games, so we've
been blessed being able to do
that."
Another large crowd is
expected, so fans are encouraged.
to arrive at Panther Stadium early.
Tickets are $7 and are available at
the ticket booth in front of the
stadium. .

hearing about how old Farve
was at 38, how his arm strength
was a big question. How Favre
needed a running game to
augment the passing attack,
which the vaunted secondary of.
the Broncos no longer feared.
And then we saw Favre rear
back and heave the ball 52
yards in the air, a perfect strike
to Jennings, who toasted Dre
Bly and coasted in for the
touchdown.
In American sports, that just
might be the pinnacle move.
You're a stud quarterback in
this case a legendary, Hall of
Fame quarterback and the
game is on the line. You take a
three-step drop and uncork the
game winner on a deep bomb.
You're a gunslinger, a hero. You
walk off the field to exulting
cheerleaders and adulation from
a packed stadium filled with
fans for the other team. The
only way to make it better is to
do it in the Super Bowl.
But like, I said, it was the
run that I noticed.
If you watched that Monday
night game, you saw the
reaction of Favre after he made
the pass. His reaction was that
of one of those kids, playing
with the Nerf football out in the
yard. A huge grin, a few jumps
backward, then a full-on run
toward his own end zone, away
from everyone, as if to admire
what had just happened. And he
kept running, until he met with
the rest of his team and walked
off the field triumphant.
It was the kind of thing that
makes you remember why you
like watching sports at'all. They.
said he should have retired;
well, thanks for taking the pass
on that, Brett.
