vendors who saw brisk traffic as festival
goers browsed among a veritable treasure
trove of goods for purchase or
consumption. Fragrant spring flowers,
sparkling jewelry, face painting, and
bungee rides were among favorite
attractions. Down the street from the main
activities was a giant slide for the young

The Kirby Smith Chapter

Confederacy and the 2nd

ceremony honoring the
Confederate Soldiers who gave
their lives defending their
cause.
The ceremony will be at 3
p.m. on Sunday, April 27 at the

a mile south of the

Confederate soldiers buried in
this small cemetery. As part of
the ceremony, it is planned to

MILL CREEK. Headwaters of two watersheds
Continued from page AlI


dedicated to protecting natural areas, wildlife
habitats and water quality in Alachua County.
To date, the organization has protected over 13,000
acres, funded by $63 million in donations from private
and governmental partners.
Mill Creek Preserve features several winding and
weaving hiking trails that are open to the public. Excited
about the Mill Creek opening on Tuesday, Vada Homer,
a retired teacher of 39 years, said the preserve would be
a great place for families to encourage their children to
go outside.
"Children aren't spending time outdoors anymore,
and they need to," Homer said.
Mill Creek encompasses many unique traits of the
Florida region, including the southernmost population
of beech trees and beavers.
"There are some features of the property that are
similar to what you would see in North Carolina," Chris
Bird, Director of the Alachua County Environmental
Protection Department, said.


The property also is home to the headwaters of two
important watersheds, Mill Creek and Parener's Branch,
which drain into the Florida aquifer and Santa Fe River,
respectively.
Bird also said that the preserve is an important part
of "green infrastructure," which is an infrastructure that
recognized the services nature provides for people, such
as flood protection and even climate control.
In regard to the property's historical value, a section
of the Santa Fe Trail where DeSoto traveled is believed
to have once existed on the Preserve.
County Manager Randy Reid said he felt the
preserve would guarantee that the land would remain
preserved for future generations to enjoy.
"Whatever you read in literature, you find that the
land continues," Reid said.
"Programs and society may change, but the land
will always continue."

U.S. Hwy 441. The site plan for the hotel will be
submitted to the city by the end of April.
The hotel will have several key features, including
high speed intemet, an outdoor pool, a meeting room for
50 to 75 people, a small shop with amenities such as
microwave dinners and popcorn, a business center with
computers to print and fax, and complementary hot

The hotel will employ between 20 and 25 people,

Poole said he decided on the location because he is
from Lake City, his wife is from Alachua, and the city


clude meeting room
seemed to fit all of the requirements for the hotel.
"It just seemed like a great location," Poole said.
"It's close to 1-75, it's near all of the springs in the area,
there are Gator games so we will have customers, and
there are a lot of great things going on with Progress
Corporate Park."
The site for the hotel is already zoned for the

A return to limited government

Guest Editorial by Gainesville City Commissioner Ed Braddy


With the April 15 filing deadline
behind us, we're well aware of when
taxes are due. But do you know
when your taxes are paid?
According to the non-profit Tax
F o u n d a t i o n
(www.taxfoundation.org), Floridians
will not pay off their annual tax bill
until April 26. You'll spend one-
third of the year working
for federal, state, and local
governments before you
begin working for i
yourself. '
This, of course,
explains why there are
cops on every street, brand
new fire stations at every
comer, and nary a pothole Ed Bra
for miles around. No,
wait, that's not the story, is
it?
The story we're hearing is that
local governments are starved of
revenue and might not be able to
provide essential services . all
because the mean State legislature
forced tax cuts down our throats!
Last year, voters approved
Amendment One with more than


dd


sixty-percent approval. Yet cities
and counties are pointing to
infrastructure deficits and warning
that police officers and firefighters
may be let go as a consequence of
reduced tax revenues.
So what gives? Or, more
accurately, what takes?
By category, the average
American works 35 days
for food, 13 days for
clothing, and 60 days for
housing. Combined,
: these "life essentials" do
not equal your tax
burden.
The truth is local
government budgets
y will get much tighter in
the years ahead whether
you're in rural counties
like Bradford, big cities like
Orlando, or small towns like
Alachua. Plus, many experts are
suggesting we're on the edge of a
recession, and the University of
Florida's Bureau of Economic, and
Business Research says Florida's
population growth a major
generator of new tax revenue is


slowing to its lowest level, in three
decades.
So far, most local. governments
are reacting predictably they're
hiking ,other taxes and fees or
imposing new ones to offset
estimated property tax reductions.
This is called "revenue
diversification," but I call it
entrenchment mentality and it's the
wrong approach.
The virtue of local government is
supposed to be its closeness to the
people, so local officials should be
acutely aware of the significant tax
burden weighing down our citizens,
compounded now by economic
uncertainty. Therefore, the challenge
is to provide services while
embracing, not, resisting, the
underlying value of limited
government.
The purpose of local government
is to provide essential services that
cannot be better provided in the
private sector. One way to determine
what is essential is to ask a simple
question: "In the absence of this
service, is the community's safety,
health, or welfare threatened?"


Politicians who do this will see
their budgets in a whole new light
and can then separate out essential
services from other ones. Even with
bleak budget forecasts, cities and
counties can fully fund essential
services like police, fire rescue, and
infrastructure maintenance.
Other services are nice to do and
they enhance a community's quality
of life, so I'm not suggesting policy-
makers take an axe to them. But if
cuts are necessary, this is where to
start. Before that, however, local
governments have options.
One way to ease the transition to
smaller government is with
"managed competition." Unlike
pure privatization, this model allows
department heads to bid along with
private companies on services that
are not inherently governmental like
fleet maintenance, facilities
management, and information
technology. The low bid gets the
contract, but the real winner is the
taxpayer.
This would not only reduce the
cost of government but also provide
a much needed stimulus to local


economies.
This is one of many creative ways
local governments can provide
quality services on a smaller budget,
but this will prove impossible if local
leaders embrace entrenchment as a
governing philosophy.
The Institute for Local
Government Studies was founded to
promote alternatives to government-
as-usual. Our website -
bestpolicy.org will catalog the best
ideas that local leaders can use to
meet the needs of their communities
while honoring our foundational
principles of individual liberty,
property rights, market freedom, and
limited government. We invite
readers to contribute their ideas on
how to have better government
through smaller government.

Commissioner and founder of the

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, APRIL 24, 2008 A7

COMMISSION: Allowing gas station has created delay in project approval
Continued from page A I


have their designs approved by
an architectural review
committee and receive a
certificate of appropriateness,
City Planner Christian Popoli
said.
The review of the designs
is scheduled for sometime in
May.
One of the main setbacks
the Bentzs face with getting
the permit approved is that


the city's code will have to
be changed to allow them to
keep the gas station on the
property.
The former Sunoco gas
station was already
established when the city
approved an ordinance
stating no gas stations were
to be allowed in downtown
High Springs, therefore it
was grand-fathered in under


the new ordinance.
"1 don't think the city has
ever opposed to the project,
but right now it's just how
do we legally approve it,"
Popoli said.
Doggy Dining
The commission will also
review an ordinance that
would permit dog owners to
bring their pets to
restaurants, given that their


pets will stay outside.
According to Mayor
Larry Travis, Floyd's Diner,
which has even gone so far
as to provide menus for
patron's pets, brought the
ordinance's attention to the
city manager.
As far as approving the
ordinance, Travis said he
wouldn't have a problem
with approving it.


BASEBALL PARK: Would need $2 million or land donation
Continued from page Al


Approximately three or four
months ago, Presutti came to
Alachua County. He spoke to
individuals with the City of
Newberry and the Alachua
County Commission. He brought
his ideas. And he asked if anyone
would like to invest in such a
park.
Presutti proposes to bring a 24
field baseball park to Alachua
County that will hold youth
baseball tournaments. He plans to
invest $6 million of his own


money in the project, but is asking
for someone to either donate land
or a $2 million investment in
order for him to buy the land,
Glanzer said.
With the current focus on the
Olympic archery training facility
coming to Newberry, "there isn't
a lot of enthusiasm," he said. "We
want to do one thing at a time. But
it doesn't have to be Newberry, it
could be another city in Alachua."
Presutti is interested in placing
his park near a major road and


the park will also need hotels.
"What he is proposing will
conservatively generate about
30,000 room nights in hotels,"
Glanzer said.
Hotels in Gainesville can
handle that load if it isn't during
Gator Nationals Weekend or a big
UF game. But hotels would need
to be developed in the smaller


cities.
The entire project could have
a $12 million economic impact on
the county because of hotels, food
and shopping, he said.
"We don't know if it's going
to be a reality or not," Glanzer
said. "But we would like to see it
come to the county."
# # #


"We have a lot of dog anyone, I don't think there's
lovers in our city. As long as a problem with it," Travis
they leave their dog outside said.

PIONEER DAYS: Tractor show, pioneering family new this year
Continued from page A l


"We plan to have something
for everyone," Heather Clarich,
president of the High Springs
Chamber of Commerce, said.
New to the festival this year
are the antique tractor show and
the nomination of a Pioneering
Family, a family who has been
instrumental in putting High
Springs on the map.
"We wanted to get
nominations from the
community of a family who has
either been here for generations
or had very large parts to play in
the foundation of what High
Springs is today," Clarich said.


The nominated family, who
will be announced Friday, will
be presented with a plaque from
the mayor during the festival
and receive a commemorative
photo.
"There were only two
nominations and they were
actually for the same family, so
it was very obvious to us who
should get [the award]," Clarich
said.
"We're hoping this will
become a fun and integral part
of the festival."
While at the festival,
visitors are also invited to shop


for arts and crafts from more
than 100 vendors, sample fresh
produce from High Springs
Farmer's Market, and view
historical demonstrations in
Heritage Village.
.At Heritage Village, visitors
can view pioneer
demonstrations like yarn
weaving and blacksmithing and
also watch an old-fashioned
shoot-out reenactment.
"Heritage Village provides a
unique look at turn-of-the-
century life and the way things
were done," Clarich said.
Over at the Kids Korral,


Businessopyin


Aaha Award *.* Paques


families will enjoy rides and
activities for all ages.
Clarich said the Kids Korral
will add the new vendor
Gemstone Panning this year,
which will allow children to
simulate panning for gold.
With all the entertainment
and various activities, it is
almost certain that there will be
something for everyone.
"I think the festival is a
fantastic piece of our year and
just one of many ways that
High Springs shows all of the
different things we have to
offer," Clarich said.
The festival will be held
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April
26, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
on April 27.

Teachers moving with

students to middle school


Johnson said.
Because of overcrowding at
Newberry Elementary School
the school board has had to plan
for the transition of the 10- and
11-year olds to the middle
school, which has "plenty of
space," she said.
In addition, fifth grade
teachers from Newberry
Elementary will be moving
over with the students to Oak
View.
Yet, some parents have had
concerns because of the
younger students going to
middle' school so early.
Middle school is often
considered a time of transition


for youngsters and the change
does have some people
worried.
However, orientations will
be made available for the fifth
graders in order to ease the
transition, Johnson said.
"There are going to be
things that keep the younger
students separated," she, said.
The principal of Newberry
Elementary, Lacy Redd, has
spoken with the PTA and
School Advisory Council, and
all have agreed that this is
going to happen, Johnson said.

"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. .

Libbh's tirst da\ at ,school %as just perfect Shelilked her
teacher. Mrs Murph\. and e\en made friends \\ith two girls
%\ ho _sat near her. That fi, st da\. Mrs. Nlurph. di\ ided the class
into tmo groups for a spelling bee.
Libb\ did \er\ %ell and v.on secondd place. She couldn't

Then she heard Jack Kendell call her "one of those dirts
little orphan train kid, "


Libb"'s lace turned red and she charged into a .mall gioup
of bo 's. She soon had Jack squir inm on the cold. haid
ground She pressed hard on the back of his head, pushing hin-
face into the dirt Onl\ after he oaid he %%a; sorn, did Libb\
release her grip on Jack
B' that time, Mrs Mlurph\ had arrmed at the Itiglht cene.

Facing the storms of life


By REV. LEONARD R. TRAIN
Special to Alachua County), Today
We go through many trials
in life varying in degree of
difficulty. In order to effectively
navigate the storms of life we
need to strive to understand the
origin of each trial. There are
four basic origins from which
trials arise: self, Satan, God,
and the natural order of life.
Therefore, when facing a
difficult time. in your life you
need to seek to determine if this
trial is self inflicted, initiated by
Satan or God, or if it is just a
factor of life.
Self Inflicted Trials: Often
we find ourselves in times of
trouble because of decisions we
have made, and the results
cannot be attributed to anyone
or anything else. We caused the
trouble and we need to take the
proper steps to overcome it. A
good example is a person who
finds himself in debt due to the
uncontrolled use of credit cards.
Instead of blaming others, one
needs to be responsible. We
must take steps to eliminate that
debt as soon as possible, and
learn good stewardship
principles to keep from falling
into the same trap again.

Satan Initiated Trials: A
comedian once said, "The devil
made me do it." Satan cannot
force us to do anything, but he
can cause us to experience
storms in this life. In the Book
of Job we see him addressing
God regarding Job. He is given
permission to create all kinds of
havoc in Job's life. His goal is
to sidetrack us from the good
God would have us do. He does
not want us to help the poor,
care for the needy, or share the
gospel. If we determine that
Satan is the reason for the
storm, we should pray against
him. The Bible promises, "I tell
you the truth, whatever you
bind on earth will be bound in
heaven, and whatever you loose
on earth will be loosed in
heaven."
"Again, I tell you that if two
of you on earth agree about
anything you ask for, it will be
done for you by my Father in
heaven." (Mat. 18:18-19 NIV).
Prayer is our greatest weapon
against our adversary, Satan.
God Initiated Trials: There'
are times when God will bring
trials into our lives. His purpose
will always be to teach us a new
lesson or to redirect us. The
prophet Jonah was running
away from God's purpose for
his life and God brought a
strong storm against the ship.
Eventually Jonah was
swallowed by a great fish, and
held until he was realigned with
God's purpose for his life
(Jonah 1-2). That is radical
* redirection. God may be a bit
more subtle in your life, but His
purpose is always with your
best interest in mind.
Natural Order of Life Trials:
Not every storm in life has to be


attributed to a battle between
good and evil or caused by us
personally. Some problems
exist due to society's poor
choices or by the natural laws of
nature. We did not cause the
housing market collapse, but
are affected by it. Katrina does
not have to be a judgment of
God or an attack of Satan. The
natural laws of nature reveal
that storms will occur; they are
a part of life on earth. Though
the people in New Orleans did
not cause Katrina, they have
been affected by it. If a person
were to hold us up, neither we,
nor God, nor Satan has to be the
cause of the trial. It can be as
simple as a robber making a
willful choice to break the law.
Determining the cause will
help you establish the plan of
action required to overcome.
When it is self-inflicted, we
must take responsibility and
steps to overcome the problem,
striving to prevent repeating the
same. storm. When it is Satan,
prayer and diligence are
required. We must not give up
or give in. If he stands against
us, we must be on the right
track. When it is God, we must
seek His will and purpose for
our lives, and submit to His
leading. When it is a natural
order of life, we must endure
the storm, lean on God and trust
Him to protect and provide
through the duration of the
storm. He will get us through.
Remember, "And we know that
' in all things God works for the
good of those who love Him,
who have been called according
to His purpose." (Romans 8:28
NIV).

Expelled in the theaters


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer
Ben Stein, known for his
Clear Eye commercials and
the professor in the Ferris
Bueller's Day Off is back on
the. big screen in Expelled.
This film is a documentary
demonstrating how the
scientific community has
discriminated against
scientists who adhere to


Q: My sinuses are clogged
and my upper teeth ache. Should
I see my physician or a dentist?
A: Your question is a good
one because sinus and dental
problems can sometimes be hard
to tell apart. And sometimes they
are related. For instance,
infections of upper molars can
spread to create a sinus infection.
Conversely, a sinus infection can
cause pain in the area of the upper
molars because nerves for those
teeth and sinus areas are so close.
A chronic sinus condition may be
caused by an anatomical flaw in
the sinus, by allergens in your
environment, like mold or pollen,
or by untreated tooth infection,
among other factors. Smoking
and temporomandibular joint


Intelligent design.
Intelligent design reasons
that since there is order to the
universe, there has to be a
Designer that made it that way,
much like when you see a
painting, you know that there
has to be an artist.
Ben Stein derrionstrates
how the scientific community
has shunned scientists that
believe in Intelligent design


problems can also cause a sinus
condition.
A dental examination, often
including x-rays, can help
determine if the problem is a
tooth infection. One tip is to keep
a record of your condition and
when any associated pain occurs.
This will help your doctors
diagnose the root of the problem.
Whichever option you chose in
this situation your physician or
your dentist the important thing
is to visit one of them. Self-
medicating for a condition that
has not been professionally
evaluated is risky business.
Talking with your dentist about a
problem that involves your
mouth is a good way to start.

and has created an
environment that is intolerant
towards anyone who
disagrees.
In the film, he
demonstrates the danger of
this type of thinking by
showing how it is the same
type of narrow mindedness
that resulted in the
construction of the Berlin wall.
What is almost more
disturbing is how that this type
of evolutionary thinking has
been the very foundation of a
science called Eugenics, which
is the science that Hitler used
to justify his killing of people
that were less than the perfect
race. He reads a quote by
Darwin, where Darwin states,,
"With savages, the weak in
body or mind are soon
eliminated. We civilized
men, on the other hand,
do our utmost to check
the process of
elimination. We build
asylums for the imbecile,
the maimed and the sick,
thus the weak members
of civilized societies
propagate their kind. No
one who has attended to
the breeding of domestic
animals will doubt that
this must be highly
injurious to the race of
man. Hardly anyone is so
ignorant as to allow his
worst animals to breed."
(Charles Darwin, The
Descent of Man, 1871.)
In other words, we should
get rid of the weak.
The one thing that I
found most interesting in
the film is a statement in
which one professor
explains how practicing
science really doesn't
relate to evolution, but 1
that evolution is used as
the basis from which
these scientists explain
their findings. Also, they
say that an Intelligent
design person would look


at the same scientific facts and
come up with totally different
conclusions. In other words,
it's the paradigm from which
both types of scientists reason,
because it stretches beyond
science and into areas of
philosophy and ethics.
I asked Jaime Sherman, a
20-year-old public relations
pre-law student at the
University of Florida, what he
thought about the movie. He
said, "The movie was a
comprehensive overview of
the ignorance we have in the
classroom today. As a student,
I have felt the effects of
scientific suffocation as shown
in the movie. It is a must see
for all ages. What is great
about it is how Ben Stein
systematically breaks the


"wall" in academia between
evolution and Intelligent
design proponents."
I thought the film was
good, and I have personally
experienced many things this
film talks about, and I can
attest to its truth. Either way, I
would suggest to go see it and
come to your own conclusion.
