Arson Awareness Week


Special to Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE - The week of May 4-10 has
been designated Arson Awareness Week. The
Florida Division of Forestry would like to use
this week to draw awareness to the seriousness of
this crime and the devastation it causes. The
Division of Forestry responded to 589 wildfires
that burned over 109,000 from January to
December of 2007 that were ignited by wild land
arsonists.
Needing to implement a fire prevention
program that would directly target wild land
arson, the Florida Forestry Arson Alert
Association was born. The Arson Alert
Association was established in 1986. It is a non-
profit organization that was created under the
Florida legislature with a mission to reduce the

anthem.
A cancer survivors' walk
around the school's track
kicked off the evening's
series of activities.
Alachua Woman's Club
members served dinner
provided by Macaroni's
Italian Cafe in High Springs
to cancer survivors. The
annual lighting of luminaries
paid tribute to those who had
succumbed to 'cancer and
honored those who had
survived the devastating
disease. The track was lined
with luminaries - each
representing a cancer victim.
Throughout the night,
more than 200 people at
Relay for Life participated in


such activities as a game of
glow in the dark volleyball,.
egg in the spoon challenge
walk, a poker run, football
and a life-sized rendition of
the popular board game
Monopoly.
Several raffles helped to
raise money. Many of the
items being raffled came from
three pallets of gifts donated
by the local Wal-Mart
distribution center.
Also bringing several
items to be raffled was one of
the teams, known as Pink's
Place, which was a group of
people from the area rather
than representing a single
company or organization.
Pink's Place netted some


$1,200 in raffle funds raised.
Among their items which
fetched top-dollar was a
wedding ring quilt which
belonged to a cancer victim
and had been purchased
through another fundraiser.
Sandvik, participated with
teams, but also became a
corporate sponsor, laying
down a cool $7,500 to
support the cause.
Wal-Mart was well
represented. Of the nearly 20
teams at the 2008 Relay for

distribution center accounted
for nine.

RCntnu geA: Second public hearing to be held
Continued from page A 1 I


The change isn't substantive since the two
zoning districts are similar but in different
jurisdictions according to a project
representative at the meeting on Monday.
Although the site would technically allow
for a maximum build out of nearly 200,000
square feet of building, the likely build out is
closer to 100,000 square feet because of space
needed for required infrastructure including
room for a parking lot.
The construction of a grocery store or
pharmacy in the Hague area would constitute a


big change for that section of the U.S. 441
corridor which is currently miles from any
similar retail establishment. Only a gas
station selling limited other goods near the
Turkey Creek neighborhood exists in the area.
At least one more public hearing for the
Srezoning would be required before the action
becomes final.
According to project representatives, only
a handful of peopled showed up for a
neighborhood workshop regarding the matter.

Career offender caught again


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - Following a
short on-foot pursuit, Alachua
police picked up career
offender Henry Coleman, Jr. for
violation of probation.
According to Alachua
Police Department (APD)
Detective Carrie Lund,
Coleman, considered by the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement to be a career
offender, had been wanted for
violation of probation.
Lund said she nearly had the
cuffs on Coleman at the NW
158th Avenue and County Road
235 area when he snatched
away and ran off. Lund chased
after Coleman. Unfortunately
for Coleman, waiting for him
on the next street over was APD


Chief Robert Jernigan.
Jernigan arrested Coleman
and charged him with two
misdemeanors including
resisting arrest without violence
and possession of drug
paraphernalia after police
recovered a glass pipe used to
smoke illegal narcotics, Lund
said.
Coleman's violation of
probation warrant came after he
apparently failed to register his
whereabouts, which is required
of career offenders.
Coleman is not stranger to
APD, Lund said, but he has
been picked up by other


Coleman

agencies in the past as well. His
list of prior convictions
includes aggravated battery
with a deadly weapon and
possession of cocaine.

laboratories equipped with the
latest technologies available for
students, said school principal
Bill Herschleb.
School officials decided to
construct the new building
because the current science
building is aging and needs
renovations, he said.
The new building will also
create a sort of pipeline for
students looking to enter the
biotechnology field, after
graduation.
Santa Fe Community
College recently announced a
new biotechnology satellite
campus across from Progress
Corporate Park in Alachua, so
students can leave Santa Fe
Ifigh School and progress
through the community college
aid then move into Progress
Corporate Park.
Construction on the project
officially began Monday, May
5, and it is expected to be
complete within one year.
Construction crews will be
working during school days, but
Herschleb said the construction
company has built other school
buildings, so they know how to
respect the educational process.
Herschleb also said
classrooms are far enough away
from the construction that the
noise should not interfere with
classes.
Although the building will
not create a greater student
capacity, it is expected to help
the school handle its current
students more efficiently, as the
school is 17-percent over
capacity.
Herschleb also said he
believes the new building will
be the first school building in
the county to be LEED

Buildings that are LEED
certified meet or exceed
industry standards for
environmental impacts. LEED
certified buildings are
constructed with recycled
building materials, and they
create maximum climate
control at a minimum cost.
They also meet or exceed other
environmental standards.
Herschleb said the project is
the most significant
construction at the high school
since 1974. One of the most
recent projects at the school was
the new agriculture building in


2000.
This project is phase one of
the school's master plan. Phase
two will add more classrooms
to the new building, but school
officials will have to secure
more funds before phase two
will begin.
The new building is not
expected to impact traffic or
parking at the school, because a
new bus stop was recently built
and school officials have
restricted traffic through the
road over which the new
building will be constructed.
A few trees will have to be

including a historic palm tree

Herschleb said he is excited
about the new building, and
having such advanced

students.
"It's not the building that
makes a school," Herschleb
said, "but when you have the
right people and the right
buildings, great things can
happen."

Nobody could afford mothers if they were paid a fair
wage. That may be a slight exaggeration as it's entirely
possible that Bill Gates could probably manage to
scrape together a few coins for such a worthy
investment.
And of course, since a significant percentage of
mothers work outside the home as well as inside,
mothers are indeed a hearty lot adept at switching home
and hearth for the business world with panache and
style. In other words, mothers own the "can do"
attitude they strive to instill in their children.
So on that special day when children honor their
mothers with cards, gifts, and flowers, get off your can
and do something for that mom in your life. And by the
way, just as mothers come in all shapes, colors and
sizes, so too do gifts.
But don't worry, moms appreciate a gift from the
heart, in the form of a few loving words, as much if not
more than the store-bought paraphernalia. But that
doesn't mean one shouldn't buy something - just in
cage. Because as we all know, when mama ain't happy,

May 4 through 10 is


National Correctional


Officers' Week


Special to Alachua County Today
The United States will honor the
dedicated men and women who serve as
Correctional Officers in the nation's jails
and prisons during National Correctional
Officers' Week from May 4-10, 2008.
Each day, millions of people in the
United States rely on the professional skill
and training of the loyal officers who risk
their lives daily to provide care, custody
and control of the nearly 2.5 million
inmates in America's jails and prisons.
Those who serve as correctional
officers and detention deputies face the
always difficult and often dangerous job
of ensuring the safety and security of


offenders in the nation's jails and prisons.
Correctional officers supervise offenders
in local, state and federal facilities.
In many areas, correctional officers
are the single line of security between
offenders and the general public. They
maintain order and security. They conduct
day-to-day operations. They serve as
mentors, counselors and advisors.
Without them, the nation's jails and
prisons would cease to exist. -
In honor of the thousands of hard
working correctional officers, we applaud
their duty and honor, and hope to enhance
public awareness to the unique demands
of their valuable profession.

Hill, 18, received minor injuries
from the accident.
Vacchiano was set to
graduate with honors and had a
passion for the arts.
"Carrie was very active in
the drama program," said Santa
Fe High School Principal Bill
Herschleb.
"This is a great loss that has
impacted the students and
adults here at Santa Fe.
"We're such a tight knit
community here that we are all
affected by this tragedy,"
Herschleb said.
Students setup a tribute to
Vacchiano and Sledge outside
of one of the school's
classrooms. Several vases of
flowers lined the bottom of the
memorial which included
photos of both students and
hundreds of signatures and
notes from the school
community.
According to Herschleb,
several of Vacchiano's closest
friends were also involved in
the drama program and were
being given extra attention in
dealing with the tragedy.
"I watched several of the
plays Carrie was involved with


cident occurred in Columbia County


and very much admired her
work.
"She was a great talent,"
said Herschleb.
He also said students
thought it would be a fitting
tribute to Vacchianno to display
her artwork during an already-
scheduled art show on
Thursday at 7 p.m. Among her
works that will be on display
are those in pastels, acrylics and
pencil.
Herschleb said he had been
keeping in touch with those
close to the Vacchiano family to
lend support where needed.
"The hardest part of my job
is dealing with this kind of loss.
"Children aren't supposed
to be the ones who perish,"
Herschleb said, adding "This
leaves an empty desk and
empty spots in the hearts of
the entire school
community."
The accident which
claimed the lives of
Vacchiano and driver
Jennafer Hill occurred at
about 8 p.m. on Friday
evening in Columbia County
on Spirit Road, just north of
County Road 138 according


to Florida Highway Patrol
officials. Sledge and Vacchiano
were backseat passengers.
Both Jennafer Hill and Rachel
Hill were believed to have been
wearing seatbelts although
Rachel was the only person in
the vehicle who was not
ejected.
Visitation services for
Vacchiano will be on Thursday,
May 8 from 5-7 p.m. at Milam
Funeral Home in Gainesville.
Funeral Services will be at 11
a.m. on Friday at Holy Trinity
Episcopal Church in
Gainesville.
Vacciano leaves behind
several immediate family
members including her parents,
a brother and sisters.

Sheriff Sadie Darnell

National Peace Officers Memorial Day


On Thursday, May 15 - Peace
Officers Memorial Day - flags
across the United States are to be
flown at half-staff in
remembrance of the nearly
18,000 law enforcement officers
killed in the line of duty in our
nation's history. This tribute to
American law enforcement is
part of the historic crime bill
signed into law by President Bill


Clinton in 1994.
At the request of the National
Law Enforcement Officers
Memorial Fund, Public Law 103-
322 designates Peace Officers
Memorial Day as one of only two
days during which all residents;
businesses and government
agencies are required to lower
their U.S. flags.
The other day with this honor
is Memorial Day, which


commemorates those who died in
military service to the country.
Lowering flags on Peace
Officers Memorial Day is an
appropriate way to show our
respect for those brave men and
women who made the ultimate
sacrifice and to remember the
family, friends and colleagues
they left behind.
It also is an important
reminder of the continued service


and sacrifice of the 800,000 law
enforcement officers who protect
our communities and safeguard
our democracy day in and day
out. In 1962, President John
Kennedy designated May 15 as
Peace Officers Memorial Day.
The calendar week in which May
15 falls is National Police Week,
with this year's commemoration
on May 11-17.

Indiana Jones, bigger than life on new DVD


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer

If you are an Indiana Jones Fan, this
could be your favorite month!
One of my favorite places when I go to
Hollywood has been a restaurant that
recently has closed. It was right across
from the Chinese theater. The back wall of
the restaurant featured a painting of
Harrison Ford with a whip. I always found
that it epitomized Hollywood perfectly.
Can you think of a film more Hollywood
like than Indiana Jones?
It actually started in 1980, and Stephen
Spielberg was visiting George Lucas while
he anxiously awaited what would come
from his "Starwars" film. He actually
speculated that the film would flop at the
box-office, illustrating the point that no
one in Hollywood really knows whether a
film will succeed or not.
During their conversation, Spielberg
mentioned to Lucas that he always had
wanted to direct. an action globe-trotting
adventure like a James Bond film, but had


been turned down. The ever-creative Lucas
said he might have an idea for him - a
story about an archeologist.
They named Jones after Lucas' dog
Indiana with the last name of "Smith." But
Spielberg feared that "Smith" sounded too
hokey. So, as they say, "the rest is history."
Lucas said, "Name him Indiana Jones or
whatever you want - it's your movie now."
Six months later the film "Raiders of the
Lost Ark" was officially agreed upon, and
you know the rest of the story.
.Action packed Raiders of the Lost Ark
is the first part of the Indiana Jones
Triology, rounded out by "Indiana Jones
and the Temple of Doom" and "Indiana
Jones and the Last Crusade." All three of
these are great classic adventure stories.
The upcoming DVD set of the three
films consists of three incredible DVD
disks. In 2003, they came out with another
set, which is definitely nice, but I found the
sound on these DVDs a bit better than the
ones from 2003.
Each DVD also comes with some really
nice extras. Each film is introduced by


Stephen Spielberg. There are three
different specials included on the
DVDs. Every DVD has some a scene
that you can 'watch with the
storyboards of the film. Storyboards
are made after the script is written.
They are like cartoon drawings of the
story to guide how the film needs to
be made. And each DVD also A
contains the photo galleries and a .'
LEGO Indiana Jones Game demo. .'
The films are incredible. Some ''"'
mild profanity and sexual situations
exists in each film though. Outside of The
that, they are good entertainment for Blvd
the whole family. Posi
If you are an Indiana Jones fan,
this would definitely be a great addition to
your DVD library.
Also the Third Season of The Young
Indiana Jones Spin Off television series
was just released on DVD on April 29.
And last, but not least, on May 22nd,
the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones
film will be released in the theaters.

SunState Federal Credit Union


& Alachua County Today



Partners in Education


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.


"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."

Does God still heal today?


This is such a tough
subject, not because of God,
but because of what we see
take place all around us. I am
sure that we all know people
who loved Jesus, prayed for
healing, and still passed on.
Did Jesus fail them? What is
to be taken from such an
experience? What do you say
to the loved ones
of the deceased
when a miracle .
saves your loved
one?
First, we must
agree that miracles
are for today.
Second, we must
understand that
God is not at our
beck and call, REV. LE
despite what many TRAINA
teach. There are New Life
Chapel, G
restrictions, orhapel,
qualifications
when seeking miracles. Four
points to ponder are: Faith,
Obedience, Timing, and
God's Will. Too many put too
much emphasis on one of the
four, such as faith, and do not
s'ee them as working together.
Others get the group upside
down and simply claim that if

a


healing did not come it was
simply God's will. This may
be true, but one must ask the
tough questions first, before
resigning to the belief that it
was God's will.
We must examine our
faith, understanding that faith
alone does not assure God
will grant our request. On the
other hand, a lack
of faith assures
that He will not
* , yS grant the request
Sas we asked. We
must also look to
', our obedience to
, Him. It is true
.. that we are saved
. ' by grace and that
salvation is
NARD R. maintained by
grace, but life in
community Christ requires
esvlle obedience (with
faith) in order to
be blessed of God.
How many parents bless
disobedient children? If we
are sure we have faith to be
healed, and our lives are in
alignment with God's word,
then perhaps the healing does
not come due to God's timing
or His will. He sees the full


picture. God establishes in
His word that there is a right
time for everything. A
miracle may be coming, but
the time is not right. When a
miracle,does not come, and
we are left asking why, we
must hold on and continue to
pray, seeking His face and
trusting in His grace.
What if we find our faith
lacking? We must pray that
the Lord will increase our
faith as we seek His face.
What if we are out of
alignment with His word? We
must ask for forgiveness and
strength to live for Him, and
take steps to follow His
word. What if the miracle is
long in coming? We must ask
for strength to face each new
day and to be able to rest in
Him. What if the time for the
miracle has passed? We must
remember, whether it is 20
years or 80 years, our life in
the flesh will cease, and we
believers will be translated
into His presence, which is
the greatest miracle of all.
This is a time when we must
rest in His will and wisdom.
Our response in such/times
must be, "Lord, though I do
not understand, I accept your
will."
In summary, if we feel let
down by God, we must
express this to Him. We must
open our hearts and ask the
questions - ask, not accuse,
and He may or may not give
use the answer. When we
seek His face, we can be
assured He will comfort our
souls.

cam capture the insects' daily adventures. Pereira, a research
associate in UF's entomology and nematology department, and

IFAS/Thomas Wright)


By CHUCK WOODS
Special to Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE The daily
adventures of live termite and ant
colonies are now available on two
Web cameras at the University of
Florida, giving viewers an inside
look at what happens when these
pests invade a home.
The Web cams watch the
colonies around the clock and are
meant for consumers, pest control
operators, students and science
teachers, and anyone else who wants
to learn more about these common
household pests, said Phil Koehler,
an entomologist with UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
UF entomology students also
monitor the ant and termite habitats
and blog about the activity for Web
site visitors, said Koehler, who
manages the colonies.
"The powerful Web cams look
directly into the ant and termite
colonies, and every 10 minutes the
cameras zoom in for an up close and
personal tour of each colony,
showing the insects foraging and
eating," he said.
The ant colony, which contains
about 3,000 insects, is in a small
"movie set" that measures 18-by-24
inches to simulate a typical home
setting, he said. The termite colony,
which contains about 300 insects, is
in soil behind a 9-by-9 inch glass
plate.
Koehler said the Web cam
shows how these termites build
underground tunnels in search of
food for their nest. When damaging
a home, subterranean termites
usually have two or three entry
points. The camera shows where the
termites are entering a house under a
deck, he said.
The Ant Institute�
(www.AntInstitute.com) and
Termite Institute�
(www.TermiteInstitute.com) Web
cams, which became operational in


March 2008 and now receive several
hundred hits daily, ar joint venture
between UF and the professional
pest control group ofNorth Carolina-
based BASF Corp.
'"The underlying philosophy for
the Web sites is that informed
consumers are more likely to make'
smart choices about the best way to
protect their homes or structures.
from ants or termites," Koehler said.
Koehler, who directs UF's
Urban Pest Management
Laboratory, said home owners are
conceded about anything that can
affect their property value, and these
two insects are the most troublesome
household pests.
"Some visitors like the ant and
termite Web-cam sites because they
provide useful information for
protecting their homes from these
pests while other visitors say the sites
are interesting or even entertaining,"
he said.
Roberto Pereira, a research
associate in UF's entomology and
nematology department, said ants
are the nation's No. 1 nuisance pest,
based upon complaints to pest
control operators.
Looking at the ants on the Web
cam, a viewer would likely see
foragers, who can lift 20 times their
body weight, venturing out for food,
while a set number of workers stay
put, caring for the young and the
queen, and defending against
invaders, he said.
Koehler said termites, found in
all states except Alaska, cause more
than $5 billion in damage each year,
and subterranean termites are
responsible for 95 percent of that
damage. Subterranean termites,
including the more aggressive
Formosan termite now spreading
throughout the South, have
underground colonies that usually,
contain hundreds of thousands of
termites, depending on location and
food availability.

Ask Your Dentist byDougas
ericoroellitis '

Pericoronitis


Q: What is pericoronitis
A: Pericoronitis is a
condition that occurs when
the gum surrounding an
erupting third molar -
commonly called a wisdom
tooth - becomes inflamed.
From Latin and Greek, the
word "pericoronitis" literally
means "inflammation around
the crown." It is a painful
condition most likely to
occur when the wisdom tooth
does not erupt normally but
is tilted or partially impacted.
Wisdom teeth generally
erupt during late


adolescence. An impacted
wisdom tooth is one that
becomes lodged and can't
emerge fully. When this
happens, bacteria and food
particles can collect between
the gum and tooth,
potentially leading to
infection. Once an infection
begins, pain and fever will be
constant. Some cases require
removal of the tooth to avoid
infection and damage to
adjacent and/or opposing
teeth.
