Eyesore remains as guests leave

Neglected building causes frustration for motels, businesses


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - The parking lot, laced
with weeds and potholes, leads to a
deteriorating building that was once,
although temporarily, a sex shop. Homeless
people have frequented the abandoned
building with a boarded-up parking lot and


crumbling pavement, and guests of nearby
hotels cringe at the site of the building.
This may sound like a scene from an
inner-city ghetto, but this property is
located on U.S. Hwy 441 near Interstate 75
in the city of Alachua.
The building was formerly a Huddle
House Restaurant, but when the Huddle
House closed well over a decade ago, a sex


shop moved into the building for a limited
time, until the shop was shut down by city
officials.
When the sex shop closed, the property
became an unofficial truck stop, with as
many as 10 trucks parked on the site at one
time.

HIGH SPRINGS - Food, fun and
glorious weather welcomed people
looking for action at High Springs' 32nd
Annual Pioneer Days celebration this past
weekend. The historical event, that
transforms the town for one weekend each


year into a wild west shoot 'em up town,
took place along downtown Main Street
and winded through James Paul Park.
Visitors had plenty to choose from,
whether they browsed the many white-
capped vendor tents as they shopped for
arts and crafts, sampled fresh produce
from High Springs Farmer's Market, or
tried their skill in Heritage Village. A


seemingly ever growing event, Pioneer
Days covers a wide landscape of
downtown High Springs and can be a task
to visit the entire array of vendors and
entertainment.
An addition new to the festival this
year were the antique tractor show and the
selection of a Pioneering Family who was

Murder case



remains



unsolved


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - Local law
enforcement officials are
hoping to keep the December
murder of 55-year-old
immigrant Felimon Lemus
Jimenez, from getting cold.
Standing shoulder to shoulder
with Alachua County Sheriff
Sadie Darnell on Thursday,
Alachua Police Chief Robert
Jernigan said he's hoping for'a
resurgence in leads for the case.
After more than four
months since the incident, the
gunman remains at large and
police are enlisting the help of
the public.
"Someone out there has
information about his case,"
said Darnell.
"We want them to come
forward because it's the right
thing to do," she added as she
pleaded for the public's
attention to the case.
Jernigan is quickly nearing
retirement and said solving the
case before he leaves the top
spot would be a great parting
gift.
Jernigan admitted that not
only did investigators lack
suspects, leads in the case are


Jimenez
drying up as well.
Up to $3,000 in reward
money is available for
information leading to the
arrest of a suspect in the case
and Darnell encouraged anyone
with information to contact
Crime Stoppers (352-372-
STOP) to remain anonymous
and still be eligible for the
reward.
Jimenez was shot in the
Autumn Leaves mobile home
park across \from Irby
Elementary School in Alachua.
The incident occurred late
in the evening on Dec. 21
when, witnesses say, a gun-
wielding black male
approached several people at
the mobile home park in an

Hampton Inn project met



with little resistance


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
'ALACHUA- About a dozen
or so residents showed up last
Wednesday for a neighborhood
workshop to discuss a Hampton
Inn hotel proposed for Alachua.
Officials representing the
project were peppered with
questions from residents who
live nearby, although many of
the issues raised were unrelated
to the project.
The hotel is slated to be built
across from the entrance to
Santa Fe High School on U.S.
Highway 441. The four-story,
74-unit hotel will be constructed
on 3.6 acres by E.P.H.

which will also run the facility
after it's opened for business.
A few residents raised a
concern that the new hotel
would compound traffic
problems on U.S. 441. But Jay
Poole of EPH Management said
the majority of guests who
would be staying at the hotel
are likely to arrive and leave
outside of peak traffic hours. A
left turn lane would be added to
the northbound direction of
U.S. 441. The turn lane would
allow motorists going to the
hotel to more gradually leave
the flow of passing traffic.
With just 74-units, Poole said it
is unlikely there will be a traffic
issue as a result of the hotel. A
Florida Department of
Transportation permit for the
project is still pending an
approval.
One resident who lives
across from a would-be retention
basin for the project asked about
potential light pollution from the
parking lot and the use of "Old
U.S. 441" which runs behind the
hotel's property. Engineers for
the project pointed to maps


showing that the only way in and
out of the hotel would be from
the current U.S. 441. Lighting
standards fall under the City of
Alachua's codes and any
illumination of the site would be
required to meet those
guidelines.
Several residents shook their
head in agreement as EPH
management officials
commented that the Hampton
Inn would be a boost to lodging
accommodations in and around
Alachua. A new hotel or motel
has not been built in Alachua for
more than a decade despite a
growing research and
biotechnology park and several
retail distribution centers.
Engineers for the project said
approval from the City of
Alachua will mark the
commencement of construction
which they hope will be in early
July. With a construction period
of less than a year, a new hotel
could be up by the end of next
spring.
,The hotel will offer several
key features, including high
speed internet, an outdoor pool,


"The Cemetery Club" opens May 2 at the High


Springs Community Theater


Special to Alachua County Today
The High Springs
Community Theater is excited
to announce its second
production of the 2008 Season.
"The Cemetery Club" is a
heartwarming comedy for all
audiences.
Ida, Lucille, and Doris are
as different as can be, but you
won't find three closer friends.
When all three of them become
widows they cope in their own
ways, but they make a promise
to go to the cemetery together
every month to visit their
husbands. That is, until Sam
enters the picture. A widower
himself Sam winds up in quite
a situation when he decides to
date one of the women. Will he


break up this threesome? Or
will he become part of their
"club." Laughter and tears
ensue as the four of them try to
sort it all out. But one thing is
for sure, you will leave the
theater with a new
understanding of friendship and
love.
Starring in "The Cemetery
Club" are Arlene Levine as Ida,
Lorraine Kirkland as Doris, and
Ursula Strauss as Lucille. This
comedy also stars David
Minnich as Sam and Sheryl
Vavrick as Mildred (the other
woman).

their cash. Three of the people complied
and gave the robber an undisclosed amount
of cash. Jimenez, however, attempted to
fight and was shot once in the head.
Jimenez was on life support following
the shooting, but family members requested
it be removed. He leaves behind a wife on
the family's ranch in Mexico, a son and


grandson in the North Central Florida area
as well as family in Texas according to a
Sheriff's Office interpreter.
Witnesses described the shooter as
being a six-foot to six-foot-three-inches tall
black male with dark skin. The armed
robber was on a bicycle according to
witnesses.
Police say they believe the armed


robber either knew Jimenez and the other
migrant workers or at least had some
knowledge they had just been paid.
The December killing is only the second
in Alachua since the 1980s according to
Jernigan's memory.

Little surprises


The best of Ellen

Life is full of little surprises. Surprises such as
realizing there is no egg in an eggplant nor an apple in
a pineapple are mildly interesting but not life altering
revelations.
Moving up the ladder of insightful discoveries is the
astute observation that car
insurance costs more than the
value of your car.
Or when you realize that just
because you have checks in the '
checkbook doesn't mean you . r
have money in the bank.
Or when it finally dawns on
you that being the parent of a , .
senior in high school means you
will be absolutely penniless by .
the time pomp and circumstances
accompanies your little
snookums across the stage to
pick up the much anticipated Ellen Boukari
diploma. It's a forgone
conclusion that graduation can come none too soon for
the graduates. But what may not be as widely known is
that parents can hardly wait as well. They have been
planning for the day their child will take his or her
position alongside other graduates and move on to
higher education or careers.
No matter that the big day may be months down the
road or just around the comer, many parents are kicking
up their heels and celebrating. Why? Could it be
because Johnny or Sally will be moving out, vacating a
room whose floor hasn't been seen since 1995?


SPossibly, but the spring in their steps is more likely
due to the fact that their pockets are light, as in empty,
void of all contents, as in money. Many parents of
today's graduating seniors belong to the Baby Boomer
generation.
And according to an actual study, as opposed to one
I may conduct personally, people age 45 and older
spend $1.7 trillion annually on goods and services
- more than 30-percent of the nation's total
household spending. My theory, based on my own
Research, reveals that although Baby Boomers are
shelling out a boatload of green, it isn't on
Themselves.
Although I have no data to back this up other
than a sinking feeling in' the pit of my stomach, I
believe the expenses incurred by a child during his
or her senior year must rival the budget of some
third world countries. Teenagers have a natural
ability to sniff out cold cash in a parent's wallet at
20 paces and magically transform the crisp bills
into no more than a quickly fading memory.
The months and weeks approaching graduation
- can be a stressful time for high school students as
they make final plans for their futures, weigh their
options about which college to attend or which career to
tackle.
Parents, on the other hand, have no decisions of
consequence left to make. Teenagers, known for their
Sherlock Holmes ability to ferret out the last remaining
coins in a change purse or in a wadded up piece of
tissue, have soaked their parents of every penny. In
what has become a traditional standard nationwide, it
appears as though soon-to-be graduates regard parental
income as fair game as they prepare to flee the coop. In

new meaning.

our Mill Creek Sink, Alachua
. Once upon a time, there was a
ays? pleasant little city with good, well-
car. intentioned people, govemed by
uine good, well-intentioned leaders.
club But all the people wore blinders
and could only see in one direction.
The city was surrounded by
the beautiful jewels, rare and valuable,
have although fragile. It came to pass
le of that the people wanted their city to
grow as others had and so, in the
how rush to move forward, the jewels
yards, were trampled and destroyed. And
the people never knew what had
kers,
the been lost End of sad story.
My blinders were removed
recently while helping clean up
r an garbage around Mill Creek Sink in
Alachua, near 1-75 and Hwy 441.
ome I've driven past it many times,
e no knew there .was a sinkhole there
also somewhere, never realizing its
will beauty! The sink is steep-sided and
deep, presently with a pool of clear
blue water at the rocky bottom.
via Ferns and rare plants grow down
Sf the sides because of the unusually
S cool climate. The adjacent woods
contain trails alongside ancient
cypress trees. While there you
forget about the traffic on441 a few
feet away. It's like being in a park.
Water from sinkholes on land
where the Wal-Mart super center is
proposed to be built flows into
here, then into Homsby Spring and
the Santa Fe River. The cities of
Alachua and High Springs are
fortunate to be this close to the
Santa Fe and Ichetucknee Rivers
with their many interconnected
springs. Not only are these a
source of our drinking water, but a
valuable tourist attraction. Why
then build 'big box' stores, with the
resulting heavy traffic and polluted
run-off from parking lots, right in
the midst of this unique and fragile
S area? Why the headlong rush to
tum it into just another shopping
center?

Newberry adds


regulations for


cremations


By RHANA GITTENS
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY - New
burial regulations for
municipally owned cemeteries
and funeral homes were passed
Monday at the Newberry City
Commission meeting, city
clerk Gayle Pons said.
The ordinance establishes
regulations regarding burials
and funeral, especially when
addressing cremation
practices.
"We have more and more
people who are being


cremated," Pons said. "This
adds an extra section to cover
cremation."
Prior to this ordinance,
when someone was cremated
their remains were brought in
urns and placed in a corner of
the cemetery,
Because of this ordinance
people will be required to
place the ur in a small casket
like box for burial.
The new ordinance also
regulates the installation of
vaults, foundations and burial
monuments.

Jernigan called the property
manager, Steve 'Kirkley, who
promptly placed boards and no
trespassing signs around the
property.
However, the property was
left vacant and some would be
guests are refusing to stay at the
nearby Days Inn and Royal Inn
motels.
"There are constant
complaints about the building,"
said Virginia Brandon, an
assistant manager for Days Inn.
"People come here to check in
and they decide not to stay here
because they are afraid of
what's next door or what's
going to go on there at night."
Brandon said the owners of
the motels are ready to buy the
property, but the property
owner, Sally Franklin, said she
only wants to lease the
building.


"We would love to buy or.
lease the property and turn it
into a Denny's," Brandon said,
"but we can't get a hold of the
manager or owner to get a price
and it's frustrating."
Some people, including
nearby resident Phillip Rose,
have voiced their concerns
about what they call an
eyesore, but no progress has
been made on the site other
than the occasional trimming.
"The city . has a
responsibility to take control of
this property," Brandon said. "I
don't know why, but the police
and cleanup crews seem to
have forgotten about the
building."
The property manager did
not respond to telephone
inquiries about plans for the
building.

The Classic Caballeros Collection


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer

The Classic Caballeros Collection
contains two classic Disney films featuring
various traditional Disney characters, such as
Donald Duck and Goofy. Both films are
based in Latin America.
The first film included on this DVD is
Saludos Amigos, a trip through Latin
America, going from Argentina, to Bolivia, to
Brazil. The film consists of four smaller titles
that are connected with each other by
showing how Disney and his artists traveled
to South America searching for characters for
their films.
In Lake Titicaca, Donald Duck meets with
the friendly people of Bolivia. Lake Titicaca
is the huge lake separating Peru from Bolivia
and is close to La Paz, the highest city in the
world.
The next part of Saludos Amigos is called
Pedro, and is the story of a little airplane that
makes the trek from Chile to Mendoza across
the Andes mountain range to deliver the mail.


It is the first trip he makes and he encounters
quite a bit of trouble on the way back.
The third part is El Gaucho Goofy. It's
about an American cowboy, who wants to
live the life of an Argentine Cowboy called El
Gaucho. He of course makes every mistake
one can imagine, but that's Goofy for you!
In the last part of Saludos Amigos, we're
introduced to the Disney Character of Jose
Carioca, a little Brazilian cigar smoking
green parrot, who introduces Donald Duck to
Brazilian music, particularly the Samba.
The next film was released a'couple of
years later and is called "The Three
Caballeros." The film features three Disney
characters, Donald Duck, Jose Carioca, the
'little Brazilian green Parot from Saludos
Amigos, and then lastly Panchito Pistoles,
who represents Mexico. The film a cartoon
type of musical, although it doe have several
non-cartoon dancers in the film. It's well
made and enjoyable to watch.
The DVD also has some nice extras
included with it. In South of the Border, we
travel with Walt Disney through Latin


converted into Disney characters. There is
also a Donald Duck cartoon on the DVD
called Contrary Condor, which features
Donald as an ornithologist, who ventures out
to steal a Condor's egg.
I thought the DVD was a really nice DVD
to have. Although it is a show, it is still quite
educational for young children to be
introduced to other cultures. I myself really
enjoyed the coverage of Bolivia, since I
sponsor children in that country and am
planning a visit there in a couple of months.
The DVD is family friendly and I have no
reservations recommending it to the entire
family. The DVD was released on April 29.
Editor's Note: Today Entertainment

Compassion International, an organization
that helps children in developing countries
through education, health services and
spiritual:guidance. This week, Kees dedicates
his article to Jhoselin Ayma, a child, who
actually lives in Bolivia, a country featured
on this DVD and who he sponsors through
Compassion International.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY 'RELIGION THURSDAY, MAY 01, 2008
II


Restoration, deliverance, redemption


A primary excuse used by
agnostics for their lack of faith in
God is that the very concept of a
God is beyond human reasoning.
They think that if there is such a
being, how could man ever
come to know it? Besides, how
could an omnipotent,
omniscient, -
omnipresent being
ever be touched by
the simple creature
known as man? If,
we should ever
begin to think like
this and doubt begins
to creep into our
hearts, the words of
the prophet Isaiah
should comfort us: l
But now thus
saith the LORD that The are
created thee, 0 .l Saits
Jacob, and he that hurch,A
formed thee, O A parish
Israel, Fear not: for Christian
I. have redeemed Church
thee, I have called
[thee] by thy name; thou [art]
mine. When thou passes
through the waters, I [will be]
with thee; and through the
rivers, they shall not overflow
thee: when thou walkest through
the fire, thou shalt not be
burned; neither shall the flame
kindle upon thee. For I [am] the
LORD thy God, the Holy One of
Israel, thy Saviour (Isaiah 43:1-
3)
This is a beautiful revelation
of God that even the most hard-
hearted atheist can understand
the nature of God. And if an
atheist can understand, then a
struggling Christian should be
able to find hope in God.
When Isaiah was writing his
prophecy, the Jews were still
suffering. He was not writing
after the fact but while they are
still in despair. Some of the
more faithful expected to be
restored to God's good graces,
but others wondered if God's


wrath would ever end.
Then we come to those
words at the beginning of this
passage, "but now..." What
wonderful words! They speak
of hope to the downcast,
deliverance to the tempted,
peace to the anxious soul,


John E.

healing to the
afflicted, and
salvation to the
captive. But
now...in other
,words, the Divine
punishment
p r o m i s e s
restoration,
deliverance, and
redemption. For
God's people, this
is always true. In
God's covenant
there is no
provision to save
the self righteous,
but it always
extends to those
who turn to God


for help.
God chooses to reveal
Himself in .a way that any
broken person can understand,
in the love of a parent. Can you
imagine any more personal an
image to use than to pick the
tenderest relationship known to
all of humanity? This is not a
king lording over his subjects or
a master over his slaves, but a
parent's love for his child.
'But now, thus says the Lord,
who created you, 0 Jacob, and
He who formed you, 0 Israel;
Fear not, for I have redeemed
you; I have called you by your
name; You are mine.
The Lord who created you!
This is the tender expression of
the same God whom we address
in prayer as, "Our Father." Out
of nothing the world was made
by the word of God, but not so
with man-man was made in the
image of God; an innocent child
was begotten from a loving


Father. This should fill our
hearts with great hope and trust,
even when it seems as if we are
being punished.
And He who formed you, 0
Israel. It doesn't take much to
leave, a piece of clay in a
shapeless mass and it shows no
involvement or love. But God
will not have it this way with the
children He has begotten and
loves. The clay must be formed
by the hands of One who knows
the art of gentle molding. Who
better than the potter knows the
clay-the hard places that have
to be removed, the weak spots
that need to be strengthened? It
is in this life that we are being
formed by the hand of God. The
clay doesn't rise up against the
potter and proclaim its right to
form itself, and neither should
we. The Prophet Isaiah
describes the instruments of the
Potter over the clay with more
poetic license: When you pass
through the waters, I will be with
you; and through the rivers, they
shall not overflow you. When
you walk through the fire, you
shall not be burned. Nor shall
the flame scorch you.
That same verse brings a
shining word of hope-not only
is He our Creator, not only is He
the one who forms us-He is the
one who has redeemed us and
called us by name. Even in the
very act of forming us, When we
would imagine the Father has
abandoned us and given us over
to destruction, we hear His voice
calling out to us. It is He who is
with us in the fire and the flood!
The voice of our Father calls out
and assures us that we are not
alone, that the instrument of
forming us is held quite steadily
in His omniscient and gentle
Hand. He has redeemed us and
called us by name.

GAINESVILLE
Spreading rumors and gossiping
may not cause bruises or black
eyes, but the psychological
consequences of this social type
of bullying could linger into
early adulthood, a new
University of Florida study
shows.
In a study of 210 college
students, UF researchers
discovered a link between what
psychologists call relational
victimization in adolescence
and depression and anxiety in
early adulthood, according to
findings published online this
month in the journal Psychology
in the Schools.
Rather than threatening a
child with physical violence,
these bullies target a child's
social status and relationships
by shunning them, excluding
them from social activities or
spreading rumors, said Allison
Dempsey, a doctoral student in
the UF College of Education
and the study's lead author.
"Even though people are
outside of high school, the
memories of these experiences
continue to be associated with
depression and social anxiety,"
said Dempsey, who graduated
from Columbine High SFhool in
Colorado one year before the
1999 school shooting there and
now studies school prevention
programs. "It was interesting to
see these relationships still

continue to exist even though
they are in early adulthood now
and in a completely different
setting.
"I'm hoping this study will
help shed light on the fact that
this is a real problem and
continues to be a real problem
after students leave school."
To uncover the relationships
between social bullying and
loneliness, depression and
anxiety, researchers surveyed
college undergraduates between
the ages of 18 and 25 and asked
them to recall their experiences
from high school. They were
also looking to see if having
friends mitigated some of the
effects of bullying and if there
was any relationship between
gender and the severity of
psychological symptoms, said
Eric Storch, an assistant
professor of psychiatry in the
UF College of Medicine and a
co-author of the study.
"About 20 years ago people
thought of bullying as very
physical," Storch said. "As a
result people thought guys did
the bullying, and that it wasn't
really a big experience for girls.
The. problem is that isn't
actually true. There are different
types of aggression.
"Boys do tend to be more
physical, but both sexes engage
in relational victimization. We
wanted to see if gender affected
strength of the relationship
between depressive symptoms
and victimization."

But researchers found no
gender difference in the link
between this type of bullying
and depression. They also
discovered that having friends
or other positive social
relationships didn't lessen rates
of depression and anxiety in
adulthood, a finding that
surprised tiem, Dempsey said:
For some children, having
friends and positive support can
help make them more resilient
to the slings and arrows from
bullies, Storch said.
But other children take the
words and abuse more to heart
and begin to believe what's
being said about them.
"Those types of negative
thoughts are actually believed to
be at the core of things like
depression and anxiety," Storch
said. "Behaviorally what starts
happening is you avoid
interactions and situations that
could be quite positive for you."
Currently, there are few
prevention or intervention
programs that focus specifically
on relational victimization, in
part because it's tougher to
pinpoint and stop, Dempsey
said.
"If a child tries to punch
someone or kick someone,
there's evidence of that
happening," Dempsey said.
"There's a definite aggressor
and a definite victim. When it
comes to spreading rumors and
gossiping, that's a lot more
difficult to prove who's doing it.
And it's harder to provide
consequences."
Dempsey said she hopes this
study and others will help other
researchers and psychologists
design programs that can help
stop this form of bullying in
schools.
"I think many people have
the belief that victimization is a
normal rite of passage in
childhood," Storch said. "While
it certainly does happen to most
kids, it's not acceptable. And
while I think it would be
difficult to completely curtail it,
by reducing it you're going to
help someone a tremendous
amount to not have to go to
school and be plagued by this
environment of being tortured
day in and day out.
"This isn't a normative
experience and we need to do
something about it and
recognize that not doing
something could affect children
who are really rising stars."
Wendy Troop-Gordon, an
assistant professor of
psychology at North Dakota
State University, said
understanding how past
relational bullying affects
people in adulthood is an
important step forward for
research in this field.
"Turning 18 is not a magical
age when you leave all of these
experiences behind," said
Troop-Gordon, who is not
affiliated with the study.
"People do seem to carry
these experiences with them."
