current mayor for the city.

b u s i n e s s
S administration, is the
Former City ofAlachua

A Turkey Creek resident was displaced after her home became engulfed in flames
Thursday afternoon. The cause of the fire was not known at time of press, but
the person living in the house spent the afternoon sitting on the front lawn with
North Central Florida Red Cross officials going through what was left of her
belongings. The house was a total loss and continued to burn for several hours.
The roof eventually collapsed in on the structure. Neighbors said Alachua
County Fire Rescue officials were able to save two of the woman's three pets.
One neighbor speculated that the fire began in the garage where the woman's
Ford pickup truck was parked. The North Central Florida Red Cross chapter
worked with the homeowner to provide temporary living arrangements.


This year's election
has had far fewer
controversies than
previous elections,
including last year's
battle over candidate
q qualification
Lee documents.
Last year, three of
the five candidates running for the city
commission seats were initially
ineligible to run according to the City


because they either failed to submit
complete qualifying documents or
failed to submit them on time.
Following a suit against the City
spearheaded by candidates, Charles
Grapski and Michael Perkins, an
agreement was reached to allow all
three of the disqualified individuals to
correct their documents.
Grapski then attempted to run for

ALACHUA Taking home
the distinguished Cattleman of
Year award from the Alachua

Banquet is more than a cattleman.
Dr. Harrell Phillips is a cattle

Phillips used last Thursday night Dr. Harrell Ph

charm, one of the main reasons
he moved here.
Commissioner Kirk
Eppenstein agreed that it would
be in the best interest of the
High Springs community to
maintain the area's small town
feel and not become "Anytown,
USA."
Although residents said they
would prefer the land to be kept
as residential, or R-l, zoning,
the land was previously
designated as "commercial" in
July 2007, and therefore must
be given a commercial zoning
assignment.
Given the information,
residents agreed they would be
satisfied with a C-1 zoning
classification, which allows for
single and multiple family
homes, small offices, a school,
or daycare, but does not allow
Sfor any high traffic
construction.
A representative for
Roberts, who was one of the
builders of River Run
Plantation, said he did not want
to take away from the value of
homes he built and would be
happy with a C-1 zoning
classification.
The commissioners voted 4-
0, with Byran Williams absent,
to amend both ordinances to C-
1 and to reconvene discussion
about the ordinances at the next
meeting.

By ASHLEY CAIN
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS
Residents of River Run
Plantation community gathered
at the High Springs City
Commission meeting Thursday
to protest the passage of three
land-zoning ordinances that
would affect land adjacent to
their properties.
The ordinances called for
three separate but adjacent
parcels of land, owned by
developers Samuel Brewer and
Avery Roberts, to be given a C-
3 zoning designation for future
development.
The parcels of land measure
2.12 acres and .45 acres,
respectively to each developer.
A C-3 designation is
typically assigned to
accommodate a high-traffic
area for intense commercial
use, including large office
buildings, gas stations, and
restaurants, among others.
The residents protested that
the C-3 designation would
affect the privacy in their own
backyards and lower the value
of their homes.
One resident said that he
moved to High Springs from
out of the country because it
reminded him and his wife of
what "America was like 50
years ago."
SHe said that by
commercializing the property
near his home, he felt the city

era," Robert said.
When they first purchased the
property in October 2006, Robert
said they didn't have any specific
plans in mind.
"We were not really sure what
we were going to do with [the
property], but we felt we could do
something much better than what
was there," said.
But with plans now ready to
go, the Bentzs, who are architects
and land planners from South
Florida, will use their
architectural experience to make
the 300-foot-long building blend
in with the rest of downtown High
Springs.
The building will have
different facades and elevations to
mimic the store fronts of the early
twentieth century, Robert said.
Robert also plans on using
materials such as brick, stucco
bandings, awnings and window

both of the available commission
seats, against current
commissioners Bonnie Burgess
and Jean Calderwood, but city
officials denied his request and
the move never gained traction in
the courts either.
This year's race has been
relatively quiet, with just a
marginal number of spars being
thrown between supporters of the
candidates.
Both Coerper and Lee said
they do not support negative


Mix of retail and office space planned


treatments to make the building
"reminiscent" of the era.
"This definitely isn't going to
be a modem looking building,"
Robert said.
The building will be a joint
project between Karen Bentz's
company, Land Design South,
and Sunoco, who will buy the far
end of the property where a
convenience store and gas station
will be placed.
As for what will go inside the
building, Robert said the first
floor will be primarily for retail,
and the second floor would most
likely be designated for office
space.
The plans for the project will
go forward pending on the
approval of the City Commission
on April 24.
But the standing ovation after
the approval from the Plan Board
meeting leaves Karen Bentz with

"I'm trying to get us back to

creating controversy," Lee said
last week.
Coerper echoed the comments
made by Lee.
"I'm committed to talking
about issues," he said. "I can't
help what other people say or do,
but I'm going to keep the race
positive."
Although the election is less


than a week away, the candidates
have had few opportunities to
debate in a public forum. The city
has not had .a debate or public
forum for commission candidates
in at least three years.
The city has 5,125 registered


voters, but only about 17-percent
of the registered voters cast
ballots last year. As of
Wednesday, 23 absentee ballots
.have been returned out of 43
requested ballots.

Alachua County Today

Policy Statement


Alachua County Today
is dedicated to reporting
news and events relevant
to all citizens of the
Heartland Communities.
Above all, the staff is
dedicated to policies of
fairness and objectivity,
and to avoiding what is
sometimes characterized as
"agenda journalism."
Alachua County Today
is not a Republican
newspaper, not a


Democratic paper. Nor is it
a liberal or conservative
paper.
Alachua County Today
is a newspaper dedicated
to: (1) balanced reporting
of news and events
relevant to the community,
and (2) reporting on all
significant social,
economic and political
issues and problems 'that
the staff believes should be
of concern to our readers.


An endorsement





of Coerper


Election year politics wouldn't be
complete without the newspaper
weighing in and giving its thoughts
on the candidates and issues.
As politics go, a lack of hot potato
topics typically makes for slim voter
turnout and little availability of
information on the candidates who
are running.
Alachua County Today's editorial
board hopes this year's low-profile.
election season won't result in low
numbers at the polls, but that the
electorate will show up in force.
Alachua Mayor Gib Coerper is
hoping to be re-elected to his
.commission seat during Tuesday's
contest. Coerper faces Pat Lee, a
formidable candidate who is well
educated and has a breadth of
experience.
But Coerper brings to the table
much more than Lee. Most notably,
Coerper brings an open mind,
patience, and insight into the nuances
of local issues. We believe Coerper
has served the citizens well during his
tenure as commissioner and mayor.
He represents the interests of the
community and spends an enormous
amount of his personal time doing so.
We question the timing of Lee's
decision to run for commission. Lee
was terminated as a City employee
just weeks before she submitted her
election qualifying documents.
Although Lee wishes to remain
largely silent on her separation from
the City, voters would be remiss in
not considering the issue. Lee's
parting did not occur on positive
terms.
The looming and unanswered
question is exactly what kind of
commissioner Lee would be given the
reality that she would be one of five
commissioners overseeing her former
boss, Clovis Watson, Jr. We fear a
repeat of years past when
commissioners on witch hunts used
city resources to level personal
vendettas.
Coerper has truly been a unifying
leader in Alachua. It is perhaps
because of his efforts to broker a
common ground that Coerper was not


re-elected after his first term in office.
During that election, Coerper found
himself caught in the crossfire of
contentious issues surrounding a Wal-
Mart distribution center which was
only on the drawing board at the
time.
Coerper's experience on the
commission gives him a leg up.
Having served before, he's familiar
with issues both historically and
presently before the commission.
And Coerper has proven himself to
be a community-minded, honest and
involved individual.
While Lee may have been born in
the area, it's only recently that she
has returned to the community. She
readily boasts her breadth of career
experience, but lacks a'fair bit of
knowledge regarding local issues.
If Lee is interested in serving the
community, we suggest she begin
with serving on a few of the City's
boards. Lee will have the opportunity
there, to prove herself as a leader and
earn the trust of the public. The
occasion will arise in future years for
her to seek public office, but we
believe now is not the time. There
simply is too much at risk for
Alachua voters to elect a person who
would ostensibly be starting off on
the wrong foot.
Coerper has demonstrated in the
years.he's served that he considers
the welfare of the community as a.
whole and not the interests of any
single individual or developer.
We believe Coerper has a genuine
concern for the well-being of the City
of Alachua as well as for the.
residents. His track record is one that
shows he diligently considers many
positions before making decisions.
And, we also believe Coerper isn't in
anyone's pocket.
When you cast your vote for the
Alachua City Commission on April 8,
consider who will objectively make
decisions on your behalf.
The Alachua County Today
editorial board is pleased to endorse
Gib Coerper during this election.

LETTERS To EDkuHITO~R,]


Support for Coerper
I wanted to take the time and Twrite a letter
to the readers of your publication about the
upcoming election in Alachua. First I would
like to encourage all registered voters to get out
and exercise their right to voe and have their
voice heard. This is a right that a lot of places
in the world do not allow and we seem at times
to take it for granted especially at the local
level. It is my opinion that your local
government can and does have a much more
direct effect on voters than federal or even state
goverrunent.
I will be voting in the upcoming election
for Gib Coerper. I feel he has the experience to
lead our community in the future, and am
comfortable %with the \va\ he has led us in the
past. As our Mayor. Gib has shown the
leadership and ability to take our community
into the future and I for one want that to
continue.
Another reason that my vote %%ill be for Gib
Coerper is the fact that his challenger seems to
try and skirt the issues, has no experience in
politics, and appears to focus on the race factor
rather than the issues at hand. With the issues
that face our community in the near future, we
need someone w\ho has experience in this area.
The fact that Ms. Lee was recently terminated
from her job with the City of Alachua also
needs to be considered, as I am sure there is at
least some resentment and animosity between
her and the staff at City Hall especial\% with
City Manager Clovis Watson. Commissioners
and cit\ staff should be able to work in
conjunction \with each other, and I don't see
that happening with Ms. Lee in office,
especially considering that her inability to
work with the staff at City Hall w\as the main
reason she \\as let go.
While I will be voting for Gib Coerper and
I hope that your readers \\ill too, it is more
important that the readers just get out and
exercise their right to vote. Go Vote on April 8.

Gib Coerper, Commission
Candidate
Moving to Alachua is the best move I've
ever made. From day one, everyone was
friendly and wanting to help. I also have been
blessed with long time neighbors that look out
for your welfare and help you whenever they
can.
One of my greatest pleasures living here
has been getting to know the residents.
Especially the ones that were born and raised
here; the rich history and bright future of


Letters to the Editor should be brief and to
the point, typed, if possible, and double-spaced.
Letters may be shortened due to space
constraints.
Letters must be signed and include the
writer's address and phone number to be
considered for publication.


Alachua makes me very proud to be a resident.
I do believe in a solid sustainable tax base,
and with the combination of large corporate
partners and medium to small locally owned
businesses, we have the ability to have a broad
tax base that doesn't put the total burden on
our homeowners.
I do believe in the great recreation
programs we have; the combination of
neighborhood parks and an award winning
recreation center, the Hal Brady Recreation
Complex. We are able to offer our youth,
parents and all adults a create place for all
t. pes of sports and activities.
I do believe in a walkable community.
What \we have created in our town is
something to be proud of. The ability to bike
or walk to all types of activities: recreation,
post office, child care, banks, restaurants,
dentist, health care and more; we are striving
to connect more of our City at every given
opportunity.
I do believe in being involved. Whether it's
in your community, church, family; there is no
better feeling that you made a difference
somewhere.
Some of my sen ice has been:
Securing grants for upgrading and
improving all of our neighborhood parks;
Major improvements to the Hal Brady
Recreation Complex Skate Board Park:
Water Spra\ Park for the kids; Baseball;
Softball and Soccer additions and
impro\ ements:
Our new municipal complex something
everyone can be proud of for years to
come:
Santa Fe Community College campus;
Ne\w Comprehensive Plan and Land
Development Regulations:
Help in bringing international and national
companies to our CitM;
International award winning Bio Tech
Incubator;
A beautiful Community Center that serves
everyone
We must address the present, but be able to
look to the future viability of our community
and that is good sound planning.
I've been an Alachua homeowner for 34
years. I'm actively involved in Alachua. I
also, serve on area boards that directly affect
Alachua and the North Central area.
I have worked hard to help make "The
Beautiful City of Alachua" a full service
community. A place we can live, work and
play... "A Place We Can Call Home!"

Continued from page Al

Suspects currently

in jail

other members of the Alachua County
Sheriff's Office with the assistance of the
Gainesville Police Department arrested him
at a traffic stop at 9 a.m. on April 2.
On March 28, 2008, at approximately
10:30 a.m., the M&S Bank was robbed at
gunpoint. During the robbery a single
gunshot was fired outside the bank, but no
injuries were reported.

the answer Phillips insisted as
he pointed to the doubling in the
cost of flour.
Charles Page served as
Master of Ceremonies for the
evening as he offered a rousing
commentary on many of the
politicians in the room. Those
who weren't in stitches after
hearing Page were certainly
laughing by the time Scottie
Butler got going. Butler was a
stand in Thursday for the
keynote speaker who was
apparently too sick to attend.
Hundreds of people
crowded into the now restored
Alachua Woman's Club to
honor the men and women
whose efforts have made the
cattle industry a vital part of
Florida's economy.
The 2008 banquet marked
the 69th year the event has been
held, and attendees came from
near and far to enjoy the annual'
event that also holds the
distinction of being the oldest
fundraiser of any Lion's club in
the state. Lions Club President
Don Olliff kicked off the
evening with a welcome to
guests attending the evening's
festivities.
The evening lived up to its
reputation of excellent food,
uproarious entertainment and
hospitable company.

Enchanted on DVD


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer

We've all seen films where
animated characters interact
with real people. I can think of
the Michael Jordan film Space
Jam as a good example. While
there are many such films,
Enchanted is a little different.
It has characters changing
back and forth between the
real world of New York City
and the fairy tale world of a
cartoon. And ,the characters
change themselves, too.
Giselle (Amy Adams) lives
in a fairy animated world of
Andalasia, where animals talk
and people fall in love at the
drop of a hat and marry each
other the next day. This is
exactly what happened to
Giselle. She falls from a tree
into the arms of Prince Edward
(James Marsden). They
believe it is love at first sight
and plan to marry each other


the next day. Meanwhile,
Robert Philip (Patrick
Dempsey) is a divorce
attorney in New York City
who deals with nasty divorces
as well as explaining to his
daughter the real facts of life.
But there is a problem in
Andalasia. Prince Edward's
mean stepmother (Susan
Sarandon), doesn't want him
to get married, because she
wants to stay all powerful.
She throws Giselle into a deep
pit, where she ends up in New
York City as a real life person.
Soon afterward, she runs into
Robert Philip, whose view on
life is opposite of hers. Prince
Edwards however longs for
her and he goes to New York
City through the pit to rescue
her.
The film turns quite funny
at that point, because it truly
beconies a fish out of water
story. How do these fairy tale
characters behave in the real


hard world of New York City
and how will they be changed
through it and change the
people around them at the
same time?
The story is nice enough
and I really don't have any
reservation recommending it
to families to watch. Some of
the scenes toward the end
might be a little scary for the
younger children, but it's
about the same level as any
other fairy tale.
The DVD comes with quite
a few extras, including
bloopers and deleted scenes.
A real nice music video of
Carrie Underwood is included
as well. All in all, I highly
recommend this DVD.

"A Place at the Table is the story of Libby, a little girl on an
orphan train in 1928 in search of a family. Readers learn about
tolerance of people who are different. In the late 1800s, orphan
trains began taking children fromNew York City to the Midwest,
hoping rural families would give them "A Place at the Table.'


SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua County Today
are partnering to bring you "A Place at the Table." The purpose of
this campaign is to get young people reading. Alachua County
Today will publish an eight-chapter serialized short story, "A Place
at the Table" as part of our Newspapers in Education program.
The newspapers will be sent home with the students after the
project for the week is completed so that parents can share the
stories with their children.

and ye do
dishonour me.
Saint John 8:48-49
If someone
were to call you a
terrible name or I
insult your
heritage, what
would you do?
Would you
retaliate the same
way, with insults
aimed at the person

Church, Gainesville.

Church


or his family tree, or perhaps go
straight to fisticuffs?
You notice that I have already
assumed you would retaliate,
because it is only natural to strike
back at those who insult us. We
are human and have human
faults. But as Christians, we
should hold ourselves to a higher
standard, but in our weakness,
it's easy to let ourselves go, in
words or actions.
The Gospel of Saint John
8:46 f.f., tells how Christ handled
a situation when He was the focal
point of personal insults. Jesus
also shows us how to react when
we notice someone teaching
'incorrect doctrine. The passage
in Saint John tells how some who
had come to the temple to hear
Jesus teach, accuse Him of being
a Samaritan. Now, this was a
serious insult, since the
Samaritans were the most hated
of all the neighbors of the Jewish
people.
Perhaps this insult was used


Then, the Jews say
that He was
possessed of a devil.
Jesus, being the true
Lamb of God,
simply ignored the
insults.. He tried to
teach them the truth
of His Father,
revealed through
Him. But, pride kept
the Jews from
hearing what Christ
had to say. They
took great pride in
their genealogy.
Being the
descendants of
Abraham, they


considered .themselves to be
chosen of God and that their
heredity was all they needed to
insure their salvation. They did
not have to listen to anyone who
had anything to say that might be
counter to the way they viewed
"the law."
Jesus wanted them to
understand that their way of
thinking was wrong, and that by
perpetuating it, they were
actually doing the will of the
devil and not the will of their true
Father in Heaven. At that time,
Christ had not come to judge-
He had come to bring true
salvation to God's chosen
people, before offering it to all of
mankind.
Unfortunately, the Jews'
pride actually prevented them
from hearing Christ's teachings;
their hearts were hardened, not
much different from their
ancestors in the Old Testament,
who wandered in the desert for


40 years.
Pride is the first and easiest
path for Satan to work his way
into the soul. We must remember
that all the gifts we possess are
gifts from God. Rather than
being prideful of what we can do
or of what we have
accomplished, we should feel
humbled and blessed that our
Lord loves us so much that He
would give us these gifts. We
should also pray for guidance on
how we can use these gifts to
benefit God and His Kingdom
and not just ourselves.
Christians must not follow
the example of those prideful and
stiff-necked people who would
insult our Lord or our fellow
man. We must follow the
example of Christ and endure the
insults and pain, even the pain of
the Cross, and swiftly correct
false teaching of doctrine, no


matter what we may suffer
personally. Pray continually for
guidance, strength and courage
always to do the will of our
Father in heaven, and to thank
God for all the gifts He has given
us, most especially the gift of His
Son, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus
Christ.
Saint John of Kronstadt gave
us some great words of wisdom
to live by:
True love willingly bears
privations, troubles, and
labours; endures offences,
humiliation, defects, sins, and
injustices, if they do not harm
others; bears patiently and
meekly with the baseness and
malice of others, leaving
judgment to the all-seeing God,
the righteous Judge, and praying
that He may teach those who are
darkened by senseless passions.

Many of the children affected
by Autism are now in our public
schools where they need aids
and special methods to teach
them. It is imperative that we
find the cause or causes of
Autism so that we can find a
cure.
Please support the

participating, donating and
asking others to do the same.
All checks should be made

Q: Has the study of dentistry
pretty much advanced as far as it can?
A: The science and art of dentistry
has been moving forward steadily
since 5000 B.C. when Sumerians
thought "tooth worms" caused dental
decay. Here are just some of the
advances that occurred in the 20th
Century alone:
1905: a German chemist named
Alfred Einhom developed the formula
for a local anesthetic called procain. It
would later be marketed under the
trade name Novocain.
1913: Alfred C. Fones opened the
Fones Clinic for Dental Hygienists in
Bridgeport, Connecticut. It was the
world's first oral hygiene school.
Fones was the first to use the term


"dental hygienist."
1938: the first toothbrush made
with synthetic bristles they were
nylon appeared on the market.
1945: the era of mass water
fluoridation began when the cities of
Grand Rapids, Michigan and
Newburgh, New York added sodium
fluoride to their water systems.
1957: the high-speed, air-driven
drill is introduced.
1958: a fully reclining dental chair
comes on the market.
1997: the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration approved a laser for
use in treating tooth decay.
And the research goes on. Talk
with your dentist about new dental
discoveries.
