Archer battles GRU over sludge disposal
By RHANA GITTENS
ARCHER- Ironically, in a town with
no wastewater system of its own, the
disposal of wastewater sludge is becoming
a big problem in Archer. Some refer to
sludge as "biosolids," which are the
byproduct of the treatment of wastewater in
a wastewater treatment plant, such as that
operated by Gainesville Regional Utilities

HIGH SPRINGS Specific conditions
that would likely resolve the City of High
Springs' objections to a local cat sanctuary
have been laid out, said City Attorney
Thomas DePeter on Thursday. Although
neither the High Springs Commission nor
County Commission has reviewed the offer,
DePeter said it was the culmination of staff's
interpretation of concerns expressed by City
Steven and Pennie Lefkowitz, whose
eight-acre enclave at 21023 NW 168th Line

ALACHUA The City of Alachua has-
applied for a United States Department of
Transportation (DOT) grant that will help
offset the.costs of the City of Alachua Transit
CATS was started on Sept. 11, 2006 to
help match job seekers with prospective
employers in the City of Alachua, and to help
elderly citizens get to medical appointments
in Gainesville. The transit system was also
designed to take traffic off of U.S. Highway

. But to Archer residents it's simply
"sludge," and they're tired of it.
For 26 years GRU has been leasing
Whispering Pines Ranch in the city of
Archer to dispose of its sludge.
Now a permit that would allow the
multi-service utility giant to continue the
disposal of Class B sludge on open fields is
up for renewal, and Archer residents are
fighting back, Archer City Manager
Douglas Dryman said.
"We understand that you have to
dispose the sludge, but we want it to be
done in a proper manner."
Currently, GRU treats its sludge by
spreading it across the approximately 1,400
acres of field in Archer and allowing it to
heat up in the sun to kill pathogens and

ALACHUA After a more
than six-month stalemate with
Alachua County officials over
one of the City of Alachua's
proposed annexations, the
matter has seemingly resolved
Alachua County staffers
had previously said they were
going to recommend
challenging the annexation of a
16-acre portion of land
connected to the McGinley
Industrial Park. But County
attorneys have apparently said
they would recommend the
County Commission not
pursue a lawsuit against the
City of Alachua over the
annexation, City officials said
Alachua County officials
previously expressed concern
that the annexation would
violate the Boundary
Adjustment Act, so they
requested the City of Alachua
not annex the property.
According to the Boundary
unincorporated areas cannot be-
completely enclosed by a city,-
because doing so would create,
Alachua County officials
said the annexation of the
McGinley property would
cause a portion of
unincorporated land between
N.W. 120th Lane and U.S. 441
to be cut off from the rest of
However, the annexation
does not violate the Boundary
Adjustment Act, because the
portion of unincorporated land
is not completely enclosed by
the City ofAlachua, said David

representing the City.

property was initially accepted

The big question from many

question will remain
unanswered. Metz said the

added, "To suggest there was
any commitment from
Starbucks would be erroneous."

Small commercial retail
plazas aren't the only types of
springing up along U.S. 441.
Lowe's, the home improvement
warehouse has indicated its
intent to build just northwest of

The seemingly endless
stream of commercial
development along Alachua's
441 corridor is changing the
face of this small town of 7,000
people. Nearly all that exists
now of a highway once lined by
cow pastures and pecan trees
are stories of yesteryear.
While the real estate market
sees reduced home valuations,
Alachua is seeing resurgences
in commercial development -
especially along the 441
corridor, an area targeted for
more growth by City 6fficials.

City of High Springs has offered several proposals
more than 400 cats and other animals since
The Lefkowitzs were granted a special
exception for a private animal shelter in
August 2007 by the Alachua Board of County
Commissioners, to which the City of High
Springs quickly filed an appeal, resulting in an
ensuing lawsuit with the couple.
Many complaints have been made over the
years by neighbors and city officials.
Neighbors have complained of a strong
odor emanating from the property, and city
officials worry this could be a public health
City officials are also concerned over the
couple's practice of burying deceased cats on

300 feet from the city's drinking well contains
no animals and poses no health risk to the
water, as he keeps his animals 750 to 1000 feet
from the well at all times.
The living conditions of the cats have also
been reported as questionable by some. The
Lefkowitzs, however, refute claims that the
cats live in unsanitary conditions, saying litter
boxes are changed regularly and their cages
are appropriate housing.
In order to resolve this problem, the City of
High Springs has offered several proposals to
DePeter said the proposals include
constructing an animal housing structure with
floors, walls, and water and sewer connections
and discontinuing the burial of deceased cats
on the property.
The City also wants the Lefkowitzs to
follow additional Humane Society guidelines,
which include cleaning the animal housing
structure daily and constructing a more
accessible road to the property.
DePeter said if the Lefkowitzs choose to
comply 'with the City of High Springs'
proposals, the City will annex their property
into High Springs and provide all services,
including law enforcement, water and sewer
A joint meeting will be held on Feb. 11
between Alachua County and the City of High
Springs in hopes of resolving the problem, at
which time any counter offers from the
Lefkowitzs will be considered.

The grant program has a
$380,000 budget, and the funds
must be distributedbetween 18
counties in Florida, Pra said.
One of the issues that may
affect whether Alachua receives
the grant is that CATS has,
experienced low ridership.
In December, the transit
system took 182 riders between
Alachua and Gainesville, Lee
said. CATS averaged six riders
each day in December.
"Although ridership is not
where they want it to be, that
doesn't mean it will not be
sufficient for this grant," Pra
said in an interview. "Clearly,
you want positive numbers.
But, that doesn't mean
passenger highs and lows will
affect the grant."
The December holiday
season may have caused a
decrease in the number of riders
in December, said Alachua City
Manager Clovis Watson, Jr.
Another factor hindering
CATS ridership is the limited
route and scheduling of the
"It's difficult to get
everyone where they need to
go, but it's a start," Watson said.
City officials expect transit
ridership to increase in the
future, because a 5-cent gas tax
became effective Jan. 1, which
may put a higher burden on
low-income families, said
Alachua Commissioner Jean
"I expect now, more than
ever, that this transportation is
going to be needed for the
working folks," Calderwood
Although CATS has
experienced low ridership, City
officials said they believe the
transit system is a good step in
the right direction.
"Without the Commission
as a whole, this project would
have never gotten. off the
ground and become, what I
consider, the success it is now,"
Caldeiwood said. "We knew it
was going to take some time to

Department of Growth Management after
reviewing the Urban Services Report (USR) filed
by the City of Alachua on June 8.
The County later retracted their acceptance of
the annexation, but City officials decided to go
ahead with the process in "good faith."
County officials claim the McGinley property
was actually annexed in 2001. However, due to a
wording issue, only a portion of the property was
officially armexed into the city.
The USR created for the 2001 annexation did
not contain the proper legal description of the
annexation, but a map attached to the USR clearly
showed the entire McGinley property being
annexed; said David Theriaque, an attorney
representing the City of Alachua.
"It would be our position that the larger piece
was annexed in 2001, but the county decided it
wasn't annexed," Theriaque said. "There is no
previous case in Florida where the legal
description and map didn't match."
Still, Monday's hearing was intended to
resolve any concerns that the land wasn't
properly annexed in 2001 and to solidify the
City's case in the event Alachua County does in
fact pursue legal challenges to the annexation.

The Lamb of God who taketh away the sin of the world
Special to Alachua County Today
"There standeth one among you, whom ye know
Today, we can look at those words of John the
Baptist and realize that what he is saying is a harsh
denunciation of his fellow Jews. John, a prophet of
God, is preaching to the children of Israel, not to
Gentiles. "There standeth one among
you, whom ye know not."
John is at the Jordan River, about to
lead the people into the promised land of
God. He is calling the people to cross a
more eternal dividing line, one which
means the difference between life and
death-this dividing line is the soul. John
is a messenger whose job is to point the
way to the Father, through the Blood of
the Lamb, Jesus, bringing them new life
and deliverance from death.
John faces a daunting task. The The Ven.
people do not even realize that they stand Leasure
in the presence of their God. They had All Saint.
the Temple and the priesthood, the Church,
sacrifices and feast days, and the Law. A parish
But, they lived under the tyranny of the Christian
Romans, and prayed for deliverance. Church
With so much religious observance, they
should have been prepared to see their Messiah; but,
they could not see Him standing before their eyes.
Or, perhaps they refused to see Him.
John the Baptist saw the Incarnate God standing
before him at the river Jordan, and Simeon
proclaimed in the Temple, "Lord, now lettest thou thy
servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For
mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast
prepared before the face of all people; A light to
lighten the Gentiles, and the gloty of thy people
Israel. (Luke 2:29-32) These events show us that
God was not hiding Himself nor trying to arrive
secretly in Israel.
God chose to reveal Himself in Israel for a
reason-He had been preparing them for His coming
since the Fall in the Garden of Eden. The signs were
there for thousands of years; look at all of the
prophets that had been sent to warn Israel and get her
people back on the path of righteousness. There was
more than John's voice crying in the wilderness.
There were sacrifices given every year as a reminder
of God's coming near to mankind. Israel was chosen
because it had been given the invitation and warning
more clearly than any other nation on earth. God was
not hiding from man, He was anticipated more than
any earthly king, but the final messenger proclaims,
"there standeth one among you, whom ye know not. "
John the Baptist was the final
prophet; his was the final voice to
silence the evil intent to hide God from
mankind, the voice preparing them for
the coming Deliverer. When He
arrives, it is only John the Baptist who
recognizes Him. What does this say to
Is it that we will not see whose
presence we are in? In those items of
worship, from the ministry to the
Scriptures, we confess that Christ
makes Himself known to us. He is not
John E. hidden but is truly revealed and is
present to heal us, to teach tis, to
Anglican commune with us, and to save us from
ainesville. our sin. This is the belief that every
f the generation of the Faithful has held to
Episcopal be true. But, do we sit as blindly in our
religious beliefs as the most devout
Jew who heard John at the Jordan
River? The Son of God has come, we confess He is
coming again, and we admit that the Spirit has been
sent to lead us into communion with Him, right here
and right now. So, what are we to do with the time
we have been given?
I urge every faithful believer to be humble
enough to pray that the eyes of their heart would be
opened as they were with John the Baptist. I pray that
every faithful witness of Jesus Christ would be like
this messenger and proclaim to the world to "Behold
the Lamb of God who takes away the Sin of the
World." I urge all faithful believers to examine their
heart and acknowledge the blindness that clouds our
understanding, and see as if for the first time, the One
who stands in our midst. Let your prayers and your
praises be genuinely raised up to the One who has
come to deliver you from any bondage that holds you
captive in this life.

Gomer Pyle Season 3
' If you ask anyone who
knows the military what is the
most elite branch of the
military, they'll undoubtedly
say "the Marines." They are
put .through the most rigorous
training and are ready to do
whatever it takes to protect the
However, if you watch
Gomer Pyle, you might
wonder about that. The show is
mainly about two characters -
Gomer Pyle, played by Jim
Nabors, and his drill Sergeant
Vince Carter played by Frank
Sutton. Gomer is the most
lovable Marine you could
imagine, though he's a total
goofball. He has absolutely no
idea what is going on, but he
believes the best of everyone
and everything. He's almost
like a Forest Gump type of
Then you've got Sgt.
Carter, who is his superior, but
somehow doesn't quite know
what to do with this Marine
he's stuck with. All in all, the
situations they find themselves
in are quite hilarious. You can
have a lot of fun watching this
- just realize that it is only
You might also enjoy
checking out Jim Nabors'
The DVD set includes all
30 episodes of the Third

family friendly and family
safe. I have no hesitation in
recommending this DVD

One of my all time
favorite, police drama
television series from the .
60s and 70s is Hawaii Five- t
O starring Jack Lord (Felix
Leiter in Dr. No) as Steve
McGarrett. Opening .the
show is that classic intro of
the guys in the.canoe in the
open sea with the
thundering sound of drums.
All 24 episodes of the third
season are included in this
I highly recommend this
DVD set it's family
friendly and family safe and tu
beside that, it's fun and the
whole family can enjoy it.
The Second Season, Volume
1 of Gunsmoke on DVD
From the mid-50s to the
mid-70s, one television series
endured for 20 years. It was
the Emmy Award winning
show Gunsmoke, starring Jim
Arness as U.S. Marshall Matt
This is one cowboy show
that not only emphasizes good
verses evil, it also stresses
compassion. I can see why the
series lasted for 20 years -
it's really a great family show.
The DVD set consists of
three DVDs that contain all 20
episodes of the second season.

Q: Why would anyone want
to save baby teeth?
A: Your child's baby teeth
may someday be worth a lot
more than a few dollars under the
pillow. At least some scientists
are convinced that the soft, pink
pulp inside baby teeth is a rich
lode of stem cells that can be
preserved as a sort ofinsurance
against future medical problems.
Stem cells can be used to
form nerves, blood, muscle,
bone, bone marrow and to fight
disease. Research in this area is
new, but promising. And there's
the considerable advantage that
preserving the stem cells in baby
teeth carries no controversy, as
there is over the use of
embryonic stem cells.
Only a handful of companies
around the country are actually
storing dental pulp, usually in
containers filled with liquid
nitrogen and kept at subzero
temperatures. Some current
prices for the storage of cells
range from $89 a year to $120.
There may also be.a one-time up-
front cost. Bioden, a company in
Texas, and the New England
Cryogenic Center Inc., in
Newton, Massachusetts are
among the companies now
engaged in the practice. The
research is just another example
of how the practice and value of
dentistry is advancing everyday.
