Gib Coerper, Patricia Lee to compete in April 8 election


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Only two people are slated to
compete for the open city commission seat, but
the April 8 election is sure to be a tight race.
Mayor Gib Coerper and Patricia Lee, former
grants specialist with the city, are set to battle for
seat 3 on the city commission.


Coerper, retired from
BellSouth, has been on the City
of Alachua commission for six
years, in two nonconsecutive
terms.
Coerper had previously run
for re-election, but was defeated
by one-term commissioner
Dianna Rothseiden in 2002.


Coerper


Coerper later won his seat back
in 2005. Coerper has long been
considered by many to be
politically moderate.
"The experience you have as
a commissioner puts you in
'touch with the realities of what
the whole community is going
through, not just your own area,"


Coerper said. "All of the activities am involved
with keep me connected with the community, and
I want to continue to improve my relationships."
Coerper said if he is re-elected he would like
to improve the communication and relationship
between the city and the county.
One of his main goals if re-elected is to have

High Springs

hoping to

spur infill

with lot

rezonings

By ASHLEY CAIN
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -The
city commission took action
Thursday night which they
hope will result in
redevelopment in two areas of
town. The commission
appro\ ed an ordinance which
amends the city's zoning
regulations. The move allows
some small lots, many dotted
with homes in disrepair, to' be
available for new
development, and city
official's hope for affordable
housing.
The amendment was
passed unanimously.
The ordinance amended
the "table of required
dimensions" of the High
Springs land development
code, changing the R-3
minimum lot size from 7,500
square feet requirement to
4,500 in areas where
wastewater service is present.
In conjunction with the
change, many other lots were
rezoned from R-3 to R-2
which requires a larger
minimum lot size.
The two areas affected by
Thursday's action fall
between llth and 13th streets
off of Railroad Avenue and in
the 1st to 4th street area north
of Poe Springs Road.

Great Outdoors




back in business


P)hoto by MICHELE CANNEY/Special to Alachua County Today
The staff at The Great Outdoors in High Springs stopped for a quick photo before the mad rush
of hundreds of guests who attended the restaurant's grand opening celebration on Saturday
night.


By ASHLEY CAIN
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS The Great Outdoors, '65
North Main St., opened its historic doors once
more on Tuesday, after a much anticipated
renovation from new owners Bob and Karen
Bentz.
The newly renovated restaurant's opening
was a bit of a romance story for Karen Bentz,
and it started when she first fell in love with
High Springs at the age of 19.
Now grown with a family, she and 'her


husband Bob would travel to High Springs
every summer, recalling trips to the springs with
friends and'family, and of course eating at the
Great Outdoors restaurant, which had become a
staple in their summer excursions.
"The restaurant reminded us of good
memories, great meals and friends we'd gone
down the rivers with," Karen said.
When the Bentz's decided to buy a house in
High Springs, their favorite local restaurant
ironically closed two weeks later..

By BRYAN BOUKARI

GAINESVILLE The
City of Alachua and Clovis
Watson, Jr. came out as
winners in a case brought
against them by Charles
Grapski and Michael Canney.
Judge Robert Roundtree
issued a written ruling Friday
which granted the City of
Alachua's motion for
summary judgment. Although


the status of the case was
known in late January, it
wasn't until Friday that the
court issued a formal order.
In the case, Grapski and
Canney alleged that Watson
and the City of Alachua were
in violation of Article 1I,
Section 5 of the Florida
Constitution by allowing the
City Manager .to hold dual
roles. It was suggested that

Douglas community meetings to steer redevelopment
efforts


reasons for rezoning the lots was to create
availability for more affordable housing in
the area, City Manager Jim Drumm said.
The area being rezoned traditionally
had many smaller lots that contained
houses built in the early 1900s, but which
are now abandoned due to dilapidation or
destruction.
"If you look deep into these lots through
the bushes that have overgrown them,
sometimes you can still see the steps that
once led to a house," Drumm said at the
commission meeting.
The new zoning amendment will also
allow for redevelopment in downtrodden
areas of the city and help start the process
for creating neighborhoods and a
community, Drumm said.
According to Commissioner Kirk
Eppenstein, the city owns about 15 of the
affected lots and is hoping to create a
community land trust which would reduce
the costs of homes on the land by allowing


a homeowner to buy just the home.
"Creating this kind of a land trust takes
someone who might have to rent and gives
them the pride of ownership, while helping
to promote redevelopment, rebuild
neighborhoods and create infill," the
commissioner said.
Eppenstein said there is 'little capital
outlay from the city in the process which
has already been done in other areas
including Orlando and in the Northeast.
"We're not reinventing the wheel here,"
Eppenstein said.
"The price of housing has gone up so
much that sometimes hardworking people
can't afford to buy'a home.
"This is a significant effort to provide
housing that a typical working person can
buy.",
To that end, Eppenstein said, the
Douglas community in High Springs has
already been meeting regularly to
determine what kinds of architectural


standards should exist and how the area
might develop.
The next community meeting is slated
for 6:30 p.m. on March 11 at Martin Luther
King, Jr. Daycare center in Catherine
Taylor Park.
Eppenstein said the rezoning efforts
have long been in the works and credits city
staff with bringing the project closer to
reality.
"Hiring the professional staff has made
all the difference in helping to move
forward the cause of workforce housing,"
he said.
Under the new amendment, mobile
homes will be prohibited from settling on
the lots, but mobile homes that currently
exist on these lots will be "grandfathered
in," City Attorney Tom DePeter said at the
commission meeting.

GREdT OUTDOOR.Menu items named after local people and places


But it was almost as if fate
intervened when Karen walked
by the restaurant one Saturday
evening and noticed a "For
Sale" sign in the window of the.
Great Outdoors.
"I called Bob and said, 'We
have to buy this," Karen said.
In 2006, they closed the deal
on the restaurant and began
renovations in late 2007.
The new owners wanted to
keep the 113-year-old building
as historically preserved as
possible, but its current
condition upon purchase did not
meet health code standards and
was in serious need of repair,
Karen said.
With their architectural
experience as architects and
land planners, they were able to
achieve a restoration of the
building that not only embraces
the building's history, but
improves upon it as well.
The building still retains its
signature Romanesque arches,
windows, and original flooring
in the lower and upper portions
of the building.
Decorated with artwork
from local photographers like
John Moran and Wes Skiles,
and kayaks and paddles from
that the Bentzs found from all
over the U.S., the d6cor
"celebrates how beautiful the
area really is," Karen said.
The Bentzs added a state-of-
the-art kitchen facility, as well
as a bar and bar seating t6 the
"'Spring Caf&" of the former
Great Outdoors.
The upper Opera House of
the restaurant is still undergoing
renovation, but when finished it
will be a banquet facility for
wedding receptions, church
gatherings and business
meetings, which seats up to 110
people and includes state-of-
the-art audio visual equipment.
During renovations, the
building was not the only thing
to receive an update, but the
menu underwent revision as
well.


"The best way of describing
it is fresh American cuisine with
a culinary twist," Karen said.
The restaurant features
Harris Ranch steaks and beef,
which are all naturally
processed and contain no
hormones.
The menu also offers prime
rib, rib eyes, bison, duck, catfish
and trout.
"We have a lot of the meats
you would expect to have if you
were hunting out West or
staying in a lodge," Karen said.
Great Outdoors also features
four different burgers named
after the four springs of the area,
as well other signature salads,
sandwiches and vegetarian
dishes.
"Our most unusual dish is
called Naked Ed's Low Country
Boil, which is a sort of South
Carolina low boil with fish;
corn, potatoes and sausage,"
Karen said.
"It's probably my favorite
dish on the menu."
The restaurant features in-
house desserts created daily by
a former Walt Disney Co. chef,
who makes the best Rum Island
ice cream, caramel dessert,
Karen said.
Beyond creating a new
cuisine, the Bentzs also decided
to venture into offering their
own exclusively labeled beer
from the Florida Brewing
Company.
Great Outdoors offers three
different beers Naked Ed's
Pale Ale, Three Merry Widows,
and Tail-Gator Pilsner each
named with a piece of High
Springs history in mind.
"Naked Ed's Pale Ale is
named after Naked Ed, a'
naturalist who is the caretaker
of Lilly Springs. He gave Us
permission to use his name and
picture on our label, and also
.one of his philosophies, which
is 'It's nice to be important, but
it's more important to be nice,"
Karen said.
The Three Merry Widows


beer was named after a small
prophylactic bottle the Bentz'
found under the floorboards
during remodeling, and Tail-
Gator Pilsner is a tribute to the
Florida alligators that inhabit
the rivers of High Springs.
"We tried to capture some of
the history and special unique
features of the area in each
label," Karen said.
Although the Bentz's focus
for 23 years has been Land
Design South of Florida, their
architectural and land planning
business, they are excited to be
opening their first restaurant.
As first time restaurant
owners, Karen said the key to
their restaurant's future success
is in their chefs.
Carole Doherty, who has 25
years of experience in the
culinary business, formerly
trained in Italy and worked with
the Back Bay Restaurant Corp
in Boston.
"She's a top notch chef and
really brings all the
professionalism to the
restaurant."
Great Outdoors' executive
chef, Tara McDermott, has also
opened numerous restaurants in
the Southeast, including two
local restaurants in High
Springs.
During the restaurant's open
house Saturday evening, Karen
said everyone told her how
grateful they were to have the
restaurant back open.
"I'm so glad to give the
community somewhere where
they can mingle and mix and
bring all their friends to and
have a place to go to that is
downtown and on Main Street,"
Karen said.
"We are really looking
forward to being a part of the
community."

CATS:
Continued from page A I


City waiting for grant application nod


stop for CATS was also
changed from the Alachua
County Health Department to
the Downtown Station near
Depot Avenue in Gainesville.
Judd said she does not
believe there has been a
significant increase in ridership
since the additional stops were
added, but she said marketing
for the new route has just
started to pick up, and ridership
data is not available for
February or March.
CATS was started in 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 441.
The bus system was
originally funded by a FDOT
grant, but when the grant ended
in September, city officials
decided to continue the service.
The Department of
Transportation (DOT) is
evaluating a grant application
from the city for additional
funding. City officials said they
will know by the end of the
month if Alachua was awarded
the grant.
The Board of County
Commissioners recently
decided to contribute about
$13,625 to help sustain CATS
and relieve some of the
financial burden on the city.

Sunshine 101


You heard it here first.
It has been one year since the big switch that
effectively turned on Daylight Saving Time weeks
earlier than ever before, giving us more hours of
sunshine to enjoy each year.
You better believe that if there's
more sunshine to spread around, then
I'm all for it.
Lately, with darkness descending
on us by 6 p.m. each night, it's hardly
worth hurrying home to eke out :a
precious few minutes of daylight
before Mother Nature drops the .
shades for the evening. .
This weekend, the big spring
forward will take place, and on 1 00
Sunday morning some folks (and you
know who you are) will wake up
slightly more dazed and befuddled Ellen Bou
than usual.
And some will most certainly be scratching their
heads in a bewildered fashion, because just as they
pull into the church parking lot, everyone else is,
pulling out.
And at work on Monday morning, the office
clocks will be wrong for at least a week. Some of
your co-workers will show up late because
"someone" forgot to set that dam clock an hour
ahead.
Right.


I


But as for me, over the course of the year,
Daylight Saving time translates into about a
month's worth of extra daylight that I can hardly
wait to savor and enjoy.
Why, school kids will soon be jumping up and
downin joyful exuberance because they
have more sunlight in the evening rather
then in the morning.
After all, what's more important
... here? Early morning sunlight when
'J everyone is stumbling out of bed, or
evening sunlight when time is spread
before us like a summer picnic?
A case can be made that surplus
morning hours are like taking a required
class in quantum hydrodynamics while
extra evening hours are like carefree
electives. In other words, some things
must be endured while others are to be
kari enjoyed. I for one am in favor of more
enjoyment and less enduring.
Some folks, extremely brilliant ones of course,
say having Daylight Saving Time year round would
result in increased energy savings, fewer traffic
fatalities, higher school scores, less crime, less
obesity and an improved economy.
And let's not forget those studies performed at
top universities and research institutes worldwide
that tell us productivity and mental acuity are
significantly increased by exposure to natural light.
And that sun exposure improves skin conditions


such as psoriasis, and it allows the body to
manufacture vitamin D, which reduces the risk of
hypertension and other diseases, including colon
cancer.
And on the dark side, deprived of natural light,
we're apt to lose physical strength, gain weight,
stress our eyes, and confuse our inner clocks, which
can contribute to sleep disorders.
This explains why, for the last few months, that
many of us are hitting the sack earlier at night,
waking up and roaming around our houses at 3 a.m.
and nodding off during working hours.
Don't deny it.
Again, you know who you are.
There you have it, plenty of reasons to sign up
for the elective, Sunshine 101, enjoy more and
endure less.
Sunglasses anyone?

the city provide fire service for
the community. Alachua
County currently provides fire
protection for the city, but
Coerper said the service is
overpriced.
Coerper also said he would
like to complete the water
system and improve
recreational facilities
throughout Alachua.
Patricia Lee became the
grants specialist for the City of
Alachua in the latter part of
2007, but she was terminated
on Jan. 24 because she did not
meet probationary standards,
according to a city official.
According to her notice of
disciplinary action, Lee scored
below average for cooperation,
attitude and punctuality.
"This rating is extremely
subjective, unfair and not
reflective of the effort I have
put forth or the quantity and
quality of my work," Lee wrote
in a response to the notice.
Lee received above average
scores in areas such as quantity
of work and customer service.
"I left that position because


Commission to select mayor


it was not a good fit for me and
because I had other aspirations
as well," Lee said in an
interview. "I felt good walking
out the door, but how anybody
else feels, I don't know."
Lee has a master's degree in
business administration, and
she has lived in eight states,
which she said prepares her for
a spot on the commission.
"I will be able to bring a lot
of experience and insight to the
community," she said. "The
people who have been around
here for so long may not take
notice of a lot of important
issues."
Lee said one of her main
concerns is implementing a
more balanced budget and
responsible spending.
"I think they are spending
too much money without
making sure we get the
maximum utility for what we
spend," she said. "I came from
a corporate background and I
think maximum revenue return
is very important."
Lee said she has supporters
throughout Alachua, but she


does not want to name any
specific people.
"I am not a politician," she
said. "I am a person looking to
serve the community.
Everybody has some major
supporters, but I think my
major supporters are the
citizens of Alachua."
Although Coerper currently
serves as Mayor, he is seeking
re-election to his commission
seat. During the first
commission meeting following
a regular election,
commissioners are tasked with
selecting a mayor and vice-
mayor among them. All of
Alachua's sitting
commissioners have served as
Mayor for at least one term.

"The Snuggle Up room will
be quite spectacular," said
Caryl McKellar, Alachua

In addition to the
specialized rooms, the
renovated library will have a
meeting room twice as large as

month, but the building is not
big enough to handle all of the

Visitors have to sit on the

Steers, swine and


rabbits...oh my

Youth Fair benefits Alachua County and


agriculture
Special to Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE The
Alachua County Youth Fair and
Livestock Show offers youth a
chance to learn about
agriculture and Alachua
County. "Youth learn through
hands-on projects and
educational experiences," said
Cindy Sanders, Alachua
County Cooperative Extension
Director.
"The youth fair benefits
agriculture and the local
community by providing an
educational opportunity for
youth to learn about production
agriculture," she said.
Youth may participate in
livestock events ranging from
steers and swine to rabbits and
chickens. Non-livestock events
include a bike rodeo, muffin
bake-off, rocket launch, dog
show, and others.
Participants of the fair also
benefit by learning life skills
such as leadership,
responsibility, self-confidence,
good sportsmanship and the
importance and value of hard
work, Sanders said.
"Working with livestock
and other agriculture events
through the youth fair prepares
future citizens of Alachua
County to be knowledgeable
about agriculture production
and land use," Sanders
explained.
"This benefits Alachua
County by providing citizens
who are familiar with a large
part of the county's economy."
The Alachua County Youth
Fair and Livestock Show
Association is a non-profit
organization that conducts and
operates public fairs and
expositions pertaining to
agricultural matters and more
particularly to the exhibitions
of livestock, poultry, crafts,
youth projects and farm


products. The fair is an
educational platform for the
youth in Alachua County who
are interested in agriculture.
On Monday, March 31, the
Alachua County Youth Fair will
host school tours for
elementary schools. For more
information contact Cindy
Sanders at 352-955-2402.
The 2008 Alachua County
Youth Fair and Livestock Show
will be held from March 29-
April 1, 2008 at the Alachua
County Fairgrounds. A
complete schedule of events
can be found at
http://alachua.ifas.ufl.edu
Alachua County 4-H and FFA
youth ranging in age from 8 to
18 can participate in the fair.
The Youth Fair will end on
Tuesday, April 1, with the
market animal sale. The public
is invited to come out and
support 4-H and FFA Youth.

DUAL ROLES:
Continued from page A 1


Watson was holding the
position of City Manager and
police officer simultaneously,
but Judge Roundtree evidently
saw otherwise.
"The court has read and re
read the contract in question. It
is quite clear that the parties to
the contract intend for the City
of Alachua to pay special risk
retirement benefits to the state
retirement system on behalf of
Watson if it is permitted by law.
"...the contract makes clear
that Watson is the city manager
of the City of Alachua and that
he only holds the honorary, title
of ex officio 'Police
Commissioner'.
"This honorary title does not
constitute an office under
Florida Law.
"The current contract
between Clovis Watson, Jr. and
the City of Alachua does not
violate Article II, Section 5 of
the Florida Constitution."
Roundtree's ruling on
Friday is another blow to
Grapski and others who have
filed several law suits against
the City of Alachua and Watson
since 2006.

Grapski, Canney still suing city over

public records and commission agenda


Grapski and Canney had
hoped to prove that Watson and
the City were violating a
constitutional ban preventing
someone from holding two
public positions simultaneously.
The City meanwhile, argued
that the Police Commissioner
title bestowed on Watson was
never a paid position and
possessed no power.
In a previous interview, City


of Alachua Attorney
Rush said, "There was
the allegation Mr.
Watson was holding
two offices and he
wasn't.
"The City clarified
the terms of his
employment to make it
clear that he is only
holding one job,
receiving one paycheck
and one set of benefits."
The judge
referenced a September
2007 Affidavit of


Robert


Separation filed by the City of
Alachua with the Florida
Department of. Law
Enforcement (FDLE). The
affidavit was dated retroactively
to 2002 when Watson was
appointed as the City Manager.
The case now has the fate of
so many others brought by
Grapski and members of the
Alachua Leadership Alliance,
thrown out of court.
While Friday's ruling could


be appealed to a higher court,
Grapski hasn't been successful
in winning those appeals in
other recent cases against the
City of Alachua.
Grapski and Canney still
lead a pending case in which
they argue the City failed to
comply with public records
laws and improperly uses its
consent agenda.

Automatic Teller Machines
(ATMs) have revolutionized
banking by allowing customers
to dodo their banking 24 hours-a-
day. However, ATM's have also
been a great help for thieves
looking for quick cash. This
workshop focuses on some of the
things to be aware of when you
use your ATM.
Be Ready for Your


A message from the desk of


Sheriff Sadie Darnell

ATM safety


Transaction: have your card
ready, have your code in your
head, and fill out any deposit
envelopes before you approach
the ATM. Take some envelopes
with you and complete them at
home or in your locked car before
your next transaction. -
Be Aware of Your
Surroundings: Look at the area
around the ATM; is it well-lit? Is
it in a remote area, or are there


many cars passing by? Are there
any cars or people 'hanging out'
in the area? Is your gut instinct.
telling you this is a safe area?
Consider using the ATM during
daylight hours, when you can see
better and others can see you
better. If you must use an ATM at
night, consider one inside an;
open business like a grocery
store.
Lines in the Area: If there is


a line behind you in the ATM and
someone is too close to you, ask
them to step back. If they do not
step back, you may want to
cancel your transaction and either
wait in your car, or use the ATM
at another time.
Avoid Large Cash
Withdrawals: If you are robbed
or lose your wallet, at least then
you would only lose a small
amount of cash.

Wild, Wild West and Terminal on DVD


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer
The Wild, Wild West, the
Complete Fourth Season
It has been said that
entertainment 'during the 1960s
was defined by three "B's":
Bond, Batman and the Beatles.
Bond was huge at this time.
It seemed that every child had a
small Goldfmger Corgi Aston
Martin; and who could forget
the briefcase in From Russia
with Love. It was during this
time that many secret agents
spinoffs were created. The most
popular were The Saint, The
Man from Uncle, Mission
Impossible, The Avengers and
The Wild Wild West. The
difference that set the Wild Wild
West apart from the other
spy/secret agent shows was that
The Wild Wild West was a
combination of both a good
western and a secret agent show.
Robert Conrad stars as
James T. West and Ross Martin
stars as Artemus Gordon, his
sidekick. Together they travel
the U.S. in West's private


railroad car and carry out
missions assigned to them
directly by President Grant.
Both they and the train are
filled with gadgets and
James West, like James
Bond, is quite the lady's
man.
The DVD box set
contains the entire fourth
season a great DVD set to
own.


Terminal on DVD f
One of my favorite ,
films is The Terminal -
starring Tom Hanks as "' -

in political turmoil. that is at the airport.
Unfortunately, this turmoil also The days at the airport turn
creates bureaucratic into weeks, and than into
immigration problems for him, months. During that time, he is
and he can't enter the United able to build a career for
States and he can't return to his himself, fall in love and develop
homeland either. There is only quite a social circle... all of this
one place for him to stay and within the confines of the


airport. He is truly an example
of making the best out of a bad
situation or turning p lemon into
lemonade.
The film presents a positive
message and is great for the
whole family to watch. Tom
Hanks' acting as a European
gentleman is incredible. He is
truly the expert artist. I've met
many people from these
countries and I can tell from
plenty of personal experience
that Tom Hanks is utterly
believable. He has also won the
Alachua County Today Golden
Movie Ticket Award for best
actor for his performance in this
film.

Ask Your Dentist bos M

Pit and fissure sealant


Q: How does a pit and
fissure sealant work?
A: The terrain of your teeth,
particularly the back ones that
are designed for crushing and
chewing food, is an uneven one.
Pits and fissures characterize the
back teeth. They're good for
chewing, but also susceptible to
cavities. The good news is that if
cavities have not developed in
the pits and fissures of molars by
a person's late teens or early
20's, it's not likely that cavities
will develop.
A protective measure
available to you and your dentist
during younger years is the
application of a sealant to the
pits and fissures during the first


few years after molars erupt. The
procedure is safe, simple and
painless. The dentist will
thoroughly dry the teeth, apply a
layer of acid liquid that the
dentist will etch slightly. Over
that the dentist will apply a
liquid plastic that will seep into
the etching and harden. Some
harden by themselves in less
than a minute; others harden
under a few seconds exposure to
ultra-violet light.
In either case, the resulting
seal is so effective that bacteria
cannot enter the area. Talk with
your dentist about the variety of
options available to you for the
protection of your teeth and
those of your children.

Blessed are the poor in spirit


Special to Alachua County Today
As Christians, there are questions that we must
ask ourselves, e.g., how strong is our faith? Has it
been tested? Were we found lacking?
Actually, we know for a fact that our faith has
been tested repeatedly. It is faith in God and the
commitment to do his will that brings Christians
through difficult times.
We have an example of testing and the test of
faith of the Canaanite woman as told in the Gospel of
Saint Matthew 15:21. This Gentile woman, who was
descended from the ancient enemies of Israel, came
to Jesus and asked Him to heal her daughter. She had
heard of the miracles that Jesus had done and she
cried out to him, using the Messianic title of "Son of
David." She begs Him for her daughter to be healed,
but the Lord is silent-He doesn't even
acknowledge her existence.
Sometimes it seems like the Lord is silent when
we come to him in eamest prayer, but we must keep
praying, because he surely is listening; we are told
repeatedly in Scripture that, "he heareth prayer." We
may be unable to understand his silence, but the Lord
will answer in his own time. In this situation, the
disciples even plead for her, but probably for
their own selfish reasons; her cries were
drawing attention to them, which was the last
thing that they wanted.
Jesus' reply to them and to her was, "I am
not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of
Israel." The Lord's mission during this period
of His ministry was to the Jews; he was "a
Minister of the circumcision to the truth of God,
to confirm the promises made unto the fathers"
(Romans xv, 8). But, He had other sheep that
were not of that fold, and here was one of
them-one who had been lost. Jesus listened to
her out of thoughtful mercy, both for this
woman's sake and that of the Apostles. It was
for the strengthening of her faith and perhaps to I
prove to the Apostles that even though she was
a Canaanite, she was spiritually a child of |
Abraham.
The woman persisted, throwing herself at
Jesus'feet,saying'Lord, help me.' This time the |
Lord answered her, but, with what might seem |
a cold and stem refusal. "It is not meet to take
the children bread, and to cast it to dogs." She
admitted that the children (Israelites) should |
rightly be filled first, it would not be right to
throw their bread to the dogs; and the Gentiles,
she admits, compared to God's chosen people,
were like dogs. But she understands the word,
in its milder form, ofthe little dogs that play with
the children and lie under the table. -


The Jews were
wayward children; they
had rejected the Bread of
Life. The Gentiles would
gladly receive the Bread
that the Jews had rejected.
She pleaded for her share,
". asking only for the crumbs
which had fallen from the
.l *table. This is humility at
its finest, a touching, holy
Resolve, and a picture of
The Ven. John E. the first Beatitude. Blessed
Leasure are the poor in spirit: for
All Saints Anglican theirs is the kingdom of
Church, Gainesville. heaven." She was poor in
A parish of the spirit. She felt and
Christian Episcopal acknowledged her spiritual
Church poverty. And, for this she
got to share in the blessings
of the kingdom of Heaven, even though she was not a
child of the kingdom.
The Lord admired the faith of this woman, as he


had marveled at the faith of the Gentile centurion.
Sometimes, those who have the fewest privileges, few
opportunities, or little knowledge, are nonetheless rich
in faith, and live very near to Christ. Those will
receive the blessing that this Gentile woman did, "Be
it unto thee even as thou wilt." And now the mother's
heart was glad; her child was healed.
Even though the Lord was not near the girl, His
power was present, as it is present whenever we call
on Him in faithful prayer. This woman's humble
prayer should be an example to us. We should pray
with the same humility, feeling and owning up to our
unworthiness; persisting in our request in constant
prayer, even if the Lord seems not to hear us. Our
Lord has taught us, through His holy Apostle to make
prayers and supplications, and to give thanks for all
men.
Let us try to fulfill this great duty of intercessory
prayer. Let ministers pray for their flocks, parents for
their children, all Christians for one another. With
these tests, not only will our faith increase, we will be
blessed by God, in all things.

Problem pasture weeds in winter

BY BARTON WILDER
Agriculture and Natural Resources Agent
Special to Alachua County Today


Fireweed (Urtica chamaedryoides) is a
troublesome toxic broadleaf winter annual
found throughout Florida. It is most often
found in disturbed areas such as feeding .
pens, under shade trees or wherever animals
congregate and grass is less dense.
Fireweed leaves superficially resemble
small strawberry leaves. The stems, petioles,
and leaves are covered with tiny hairs filled
with toxins that irritate the skin and cause
respiratory stress if ingested or inhaled.
Cattle usually tend to avoid contact with
fireweed, but horses are known to occasionally
browse the weed. This can cause difficultly in
swallowing or breathing for several days. In rare
cases foals have died after rolling in fireweed and
over-exposing themselves to the toxins.
Research conducted by UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) revealed that
mowing did not result in acceptable control of
fireweed. Mowing did decrease the size of the
plants but the total plant number remained the
same. Also, the fireweed seed is covered by a
sticky seed coat that could allow it to be
transported to new areas by sticking to the
mowing implements.
Three herbicides identified that provided
consistent fireweed 'control are Remedy


(triclopyr) at one quart per acre; Pasturegard
(triclopyr + fluroxypyr) at 1.5 quarts per acre; and
Milestone (aminopyralid) at 5 fl oz per acre
(see table below). These herbicides can be
applied anytime of the year on warm season
forage grasses. An added benefit is that there are
no grazing restrictions on beef cattle for any of
these herbicides. However, there is a 14-day
grazing restriction on lactating dairy animals for
Remedy and a one season grazing restriction on
lactating dairy animals for Pasturegard.
Information for this article was compiled
from "Fireweed (Heartleaf nettle) Control in
Pastures" by Dr. Jason Ferrell, Assistant
Professor, Agronomy. Department.
