Newberry signs


onto special tax

Today Staff Report
NEWBERRY -2Until last week, the City of
Newberry and Alachua County seemed to be at
an impasse on how to deal with law enforcement
services in the community of about 3,800 people.
Even into the last several months, city leaders
were working on plans to start a local police
department. But last week, ideas of a Newberry
Police Department seemed to be put to rest.
Newberry commissioners passed an
ordinance on May 7 requesting and authorizing
the Law Enforcement Municipal Services Taxing
Unit (MSTU) to extend Sheriff Services and
patrols into the city limits. In September,
Newberry commissioners passed a resolution
stating their intent to adopt the MSTU, but until
now, no official move to do so had been taken.
If approved by Alachua County, the adoption
of the MSTU means that residents in Newberry
would pay the additional tax to cover costs of

residents into the biotechnology sector.
Several SFCC officials will attend the
groundbreaking, including SFCC President
Jackson Sasser and the Board of Trustees.
SFCC officials held a listening session
with area academic leaders in February, and
the curriculum for the biotechnology
program is being formed around the
feedback from the academic partners.
The $6.7 million project is expected to
be complete in June 2009, and the first
students will enter the classrooms in
August 2009.


The 22,812-square-foot center is
expected to operate at full capacity its first
semester, with about 200 students.
.Students who attend the satellite college
will graduate in two years and they will be
able to go straight into the biotechnology
field across the street at Progress Corporate
Park, said Charles Clemons, Sr., Vice
President for Development at SFCC.
The L-shaped building will contain a
wing dedicated to biotechnology training,

Alachua Police Chief Robert Jernigan retired Wednesday after nearly 28
years spent protecting and serving the community. While Jernigan spends
his time fishing and traveling, his legacy will loom over city of Alachua. In
recognition of Jernigan's contributions to Alachua, just last week the
Alachua Chamber of Commerce awarded him with both a rare Lifetime
Achievement award and Police Officer of the Year.

Sweet and juicy

63rd Annual Newberry Watermelon Festival this weekend


By MIKE MALVESTI
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY - Since 1946, the annual Newberry
Watermelon Festival has provided Alachua County
residents with family fun and activities in celebration of
Newberry's favorite fruit - the watermelon.
This year's event promises to offer a multitude of
activities to visitors, including a parade, live entertainment,
crowning of the Newberry Watermelon Queen, and even a
seed spitting contest. Sliced watermelon will be provided
free of charge to those in attendance.
The festival began after World War II, when the
American Legion created programs designed to celebrate
and support individual communities. Primarily an
agriculturally based community at that time, Newberry
chose to honor the watermelon, one of its most abundant
crops.
Many of the activities taking place this year began with
the first festival, including the crowning of the Newberry
Watermelon Queen and the Big Melon Contest, which
awards proud growers of the area's largest crops,

FDOT: Daytime



lane closures


unexpected


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - Traffic jams
and orange cones may soon
disappear in the city of
Alachua, because construction
on U.S. Hwy 441 should be
finished in about two weeks.
Construction crews have
been resurfacing a 2.8-mile
stretch of U.S. 441 near
Interstate 75 since early
February, and lane closures
have kept traffic crawling at a


snail's pace through the city.
FDOT officials did not
expect any daytime lane
closures during the
construction, but the contractor
for the $3.3 million project
interpreted the contract as
allowing daytime lane closures
as long as they were not
paving, said Gina Busscher,
FDOT District 2 public
information director.

Special to Alachua County Today
ALACHUA COUNTY -
After reviewing Alachua
County's current wildland fire
conditions and the area weather
forecast, Chief Will Gray May,
Jr., Director of Alachua County

recommended a mandatory
Countywide bur ban to the
Alachua County Board of

Lights out, blaze starts



when transformer fails


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
A small fire charred about 50 sq. ft. of
grass along U.S. Hwy 441 in front of Food
Lion, and several traffic lights
malfunctioned when a transformer failed
Sunday.
Although the fire was extinguished in
about 10 minutes, APD officers had to direct
traffic for about an hour and a half while the
transformer was repaired, said Carrie Lund,
an Alachua Police Department detective.
The fire did not cause any injuries or
major damage.
High winds in the area had authorities
concerned about the possibility of wildfires
given the dry conditions. Alachua County
Fire Rescue was responding to a tree that
had fallen on a power line when the fire
started, so the High Springs and LaCrosse
fire departments responded and
extinguished the fire.


ELLEN BOUKARI/Alachtua CLounV Torta
High Springs and LaCrosse fire departments
responded to a grass fire alongside U.S. Highway 441
in Alachua on Sunday. High winds and dry conditions
kept area fire departments busy throughout the
weekend. Just last Friday, Alachua County enacted a
mandatory Countywide burn ban, effective May 9,
2008, prohibiting most outside burning.

WATERMELON FESTIVAL:

Continued from page Al


Come early and stay late to enjoy the Expansion likely in the future


festival at its best


This year's festivities will
kick off at 9 a.m. Saturday
morning with a parade,
carnival, and games. The fun
will continue throughout thq
day with hog calling, an
auction, the introduction of
pageant contestants, and of
course, plenty of the favorite
summer-time fruit in hand.
Live entertainment will be
provided later in the evening,
with Newberry's own Mark
Copeland and all-female
country recording artists
Cowboy Crush headlining this
year's event. Vice President of
the festival committee, Kim
Stinton, encouraged festival
goers to stick around until
evening as "this year's concert
with Mark Copeland and
Cowboy Crush will be great."
Support for the festival by
local businesses, residents, and


city government is
overwhelming. In addition to
entertaining festival goers, the
event's committee has donated
over $25,000 in proceeds to
save The Little Red School
House, a previously dilapidated
Newberry building in need of
repair. After extensive
renovations, the schoolhouse
was officially designated in
2002 during the 57th annual
festival. Local citizens are
proud of this historic building,
which houses the first elevator
in the City of Newberry. Since
2002, the festival has also
donated proceeds to the
Newberry Sports Complex and
the Red Cross after many areas
of Florida were devastated by
hurricanes.
Though historically the
festival has taken place at both
the Little Red School fouse


and the American Legion site
along U.S. Highway 26, this
year's event will be held at the
Canterbury Equestrian
Showplace along West
Newberry Road. Watermelon
festival organizers moved the
event in 2004 as the Equestrian
Showplace offers additional
parking and a convenient
location to area visitors. Safety
was also a concern as traffic on
Highway 26 through the city
has increased over the years.
Offering some tips to
festival goers, Stinton advises
to arrive early at the festival to
enjoy the cooler morning
temperatures. "I recommend
coming early and staying all
day, or attending during the
morning and returning for the
concert." More information
about the festival, including
directions and a schedule of
events, is available on the

Also included in the conceptual design
of the building are lobby and conference
areas, as well as a corporate training
section.
The center is likely to be expanded in the
near future to accommodate more students,
Clemons said.


About 90 people donated a total of $3.4
million to the project, and state funds will
cover the rest of the cost.
"This would not be possible without the
generosity of Charles and Nancy Perry, the
City of Alachua and the University of

Playing for a future: Kelsi New receives volleyball scholarship


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter


BEN BOUKARI/Alachua County Today
Santa Fe High School senior Kelsi New and her parents share a light
moment during last Thursday's official signing of a volleyball scholarship
with Pensacola Junior College, making it official that she will become a
Pirate for the Northwest Florida school.


ALACHUA - When Kelsi New gets
on the volleyball court, her passion for
life comes screaming. She will stop at
nothing to help her team.
That is why the Santa Fe High
School senior received a volleyball
scholarship to Pensacola Junior College
(PJC), which covers 100-percent of her
tuition. She signed with the college on
May 8.
"Kelsi is a go-getter and a hustler,"
said Michelle Faulk, SFHS Athletic
Director. "She has great work ethics and
she's very intense. She is even willing to
sacrifice her body and health for the
team."
Faulk said New is so devoted to her
team and the game that she would run
into a wall if she needed to.
"I admire that quality in her," said
her father, Mike New. "That's one of the
things you try to teach your kids. You've
got to learn how to give an all-out effort
all the time, and that really stuck with
her. Now, do I want to see her get hurt


"I have a lot of school spirit," New
said. "At football games and other
sports you can almost always find me
down there cheering the teams on."
When she is not playing volleyball at
PJC, New will be working toward a
graphics design degree. When she
graduates from the college in two years,
New said she wants to continue her
education -and her volleyball career - at
a four-year university.
"I believe Kelsi will go off and
represent our school and community
.very well," Faulk said. "She will make
us proud. She's got such a passion for
the game of volleyball, and it's really
neat to see her have the chance to live
out her dream."
Three other volleyball players are
graduating this year, including Leah
Leventhal, who received a volleyball
scholarship to the University of North
Carolina at Charlotte.

high school athlete features.

CLOSURES:
Continued from page A'I

Public hearing brought

only one complaint


said what, we decided to
monitor the situation,"
Busscher said. "If there are any
excessive traffic backups we
will call the contractor to shut
the construction down."
The construction crews
have finished the first layer of
asphalt, and they began the
final layer of asphalt in April.
In addition to the repaving,
crews are constructing
wheelchair-accessible
sidewalks under 1-75 to connect
the east side of the city with the
west side, and the traffic lights
are being upgraded and
synchronized to improve traffic
flow on U.S. 441.
FDOT officials held a
public hearing in January to
address any concerns about the


project, but the only complaint
came from a Days Inn hotel
manager who said he was afraid
the noise and lights coming
from the nighttime construction
would disturb his customers.
However, FDOT
spokesman Chip Skinner said
the Days Inn customers should
not be disturbed by the project,
because construction begins
early and ends early at night.
This portion of U.S. 441
was resurfaced in 1992, and the
turn lanes and ramps to and
from Interstate 75 were
reconfigured in 2007. Up to an
average of 20,500 vehicles
traveled on this section of road
daily in 2006.

by the wall? No way."
Faulk said New gives 110-percent at
practices and games, and she is one of
the most intense players she has ever
coached.
New's passion for volleyball first
became apparent when she was in the
6th grade, when she played volleyball
with Alachua's recreational department.
"Volleyball gives me such an
adrenaline rush," she said. "I've been
playing since I was little, and I would
never want to play any other sport."
New said she has played other sports
in the past, but she did not develop a
passion for those sports like she has
with volleyball.
"She's learned, hopefully, that the
type of passion that's made her a good
volleyball player will help her succeed
in other areas," Mike New said.
Volleyball is not the only activity, for
which New has a passion. She is
involved with several clubs and she
labels herself as one of the biggest
supporters of the school's other sports
teams.

Speaking of the weather...


Floridians. are linguistic marvels - at least true
Floridians are.
I'm talking genuine Floridians, not our snowbird
visitors who, like the great migratory birds, come south
Sand roost for the winter. I'm talking about the good folk
who stick around all year long through the heat, the
humidity, the cold, the rain, the hail, the lightning, the
tornadoes, and yes, even the hurricanes.
Real Floridians speak a language that isn't taught in
any of the esteemed halls of higher learning.
I'm talking "Hurricanese" - the
language only those who have endured
back-to-back years of hurricane abuse can
truly comprehend.


Yes, my friends, June 1st is just ''.
around the comer, ushering in the start of
the 2008 Hurricane Season. And as
Forrest Gump would have said if he had
been. so inclined, "Hurricane Season is a
lot like a box of chocolates. You never -
know what you're going to get."
Yes, Forrest. You're right on once
again. It's quite literally hit or miss, and
we can never be sure until we are staring Ellen Bo
right in the eye (pun intended) of a new
round of Mother Nature's most powerful
phenomenon. The question is: Will this be the year of a.
kinder, gentler Mother Nature? Or will the 2008
Hurricane Season be remembered as Mother Nature on
Steroids? Will she or won't she?,
If you're an authentic Floridian, you expect the
unexpected. And the following words and phrases will
not only blithely roll off your tongue, you actually know
the meaning: saffir-simpson hurricane scale, beaufort
scale, isobars, troposphere, meteorological observation
post, sustained winds, peak gusts, geostrophic wind,
maximum sustained surface wind, anemometer,


IU


hurricane strength, tropical wave, and storm surge.
I have once again carefully crafted a completely
unscientific test, which for the Floridian fluent in
Hurricanese, should be a snap. If you answer yes to five
of the following questions, you are a candidate for
entrance into the true Floridian's elite organization,
"Floridians Enduring Disruptive Unending Paranoia,"
otherwise known as FED-UP.
Here goes: Pay attention as it gets tough from here
on out..
". Are you tired of spending your
paycheck on warehouses of bottled water,
sheets of plywood and Spam?
Do you top off your gas tank so often
that the neighborhood gas station attendant
not only knows your first name, but also
the names of all your children...and your
pets?
Are you feeling less than stellar because
you haven't rushed out and purchased a
super efficient super quiet Honda
generator?
Are you having thoughts of ill will
toward your neighbors who have bought
ikari the super duper Honda generator and enjoy
lighting, cooling and other creature
comforts while you squat on your front porch uselessly
fanning yourself and swatting mosquitoes with a rolled
up newspaper?
Do you feel like you're on a first-name basis with
Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore and
wonder if his mother knows he hangs onto street signs
flailing in the wind?
Do your out-of-state family, friends and business
associates ask how you survived the hurricane, no
matter that it missed your community by nearly 400
miles?
And when you answer, do you take a deep breath and


Cgm*umma us d


muster a weak "yes, but this one was really touch and
go"?
Are you considering moving to another state, say
North Dakota or Minnesota?
If you hear some excitable media type advising
people to "hunker down" one more time, do you feel
like you're going to scream?
Does anyone really know what "hunker down"
means?
Do you care?
Are you storing bottles of bleach because you were
told to do so, and you have no idea why?
Is the inevitable power outage too much stress so
you go ahead and cut the power to your house to get it
over with?
Bonus Question: Is your linguistic ability so great
that you can hold an extended conversation in
Hurricanese without once faltering or searching for just
the right expression?
If you answered yes to at least five of these critically
developed questions, you are indeed a prime candidate
for FED-UP.
And, if you successfully answered the Bonus
Question, you are a candidate for the FED-UP Hall of
Fame which entitles you to an evening that will surely
bring back memories.
Hunker down, for some isobar spinning excitement
as you break out some of your bottled water, peel open
that can of Spam and line up the evening's
entertainment. Pop Storm of the Century into your
DVD player, followed by The Perfect Storm, then
Twister. For special effects, have one of your kids flick
the lights off and on every now and then.
Hurricane ho, you linguistic marvels.

Agree, disagree, don't care? Contact Ellen via

you don't want your mama to read it, don't send it!

music as well, and is a former
state champion, on both the
fiddle and banjo.
Marietta Massey has been a
member of Gumbo Limbo for
more than 10 years, playing
triangle, rubboard and other
percussion instruments. In
addition, she and David are
teachers of Cajun dance.
Marietta, a master of
Appalachian clogging, led the
Cross Creek Cloggers for about
10 years, beginning in the late
1970s. She is also an
accomplished swing and
zydeco dancer, and has taught
workshops in all of these dance
forms at festivals and camps for
many years. Marietta also plays
old-time banjo in several bands.
David Massey plays fiddle
and is the band's lead vocalist.
He teaches Cajun, zydeco and
swing dancing with Marietta.
David has composed many
tunes and songs, and like the
rest of Gumbo Limbo's
members, also plays old-time
music. He is a multi-
instrumentalist, playing guitar
and piano in addition to fiddle.
Bill Paine plays rhythm
guitar in Gumbo Limbo, and
has been a member of the band
for more than ten, years. His
interest in Cajun music was
sparked by Mike back when the
band was originally formed,
and he has played it ever since.
Bill is a state champion on the
old-time mandolin and plays
other mandolin-related
instruments, as well as the
guitar.
Susan Marynowski is
Gumbo Limbo's bass player.
She is also a wonderful dancer,
and piano player. Susan's
playing holds things together
for the band, as well as
providing that spark of
excitement that makes it
impossible to sit still when the
music is happening. She
danced with the Cross Creek
Cloggers for many years and
has called for contra dances
throughout Florida over the
years.
Gumbo Limbo plays an
exciting mix of old and new
Cajun and Creole music that are
guaranteed to bring smiles to
faces all around. The band is
happiest when playing for a
floor full of enthusiastic
dancers.
The band began in the mid-
1980s, in south Florida, sparked
by an interest in the music and
culture of Southwestern
Louisiana; It continues today,
still inspired by a love of Cajun
music in all its forms. They are
available to play for dances,
concerts, parties and other
events.

A8 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, MAY 15, 2008


JERNIGAN: Ser
Continuedfirom page Al
Alachua City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr. said he'll announce an
interim chief on Friday.
City of Alachua officials have
apparently reached an agreement
with Alachua County Sheriff's
Office officials to fill the void
being left by Jernigan's retirement.
Watson said he'll be meeting with
Alachua Police Department (APD)
officers on Friday to make the
official announcement of who will
be stepping in for the interim until
the chief's position is filled.
Jernigan, meanwhile, has
enough annual leave that he's
taking time off from now until his
official retirement date in August.
To protect and serve
At city commission meetings
he quietly sat in the back of the
room, watching diligently for any
problems. Although the visitors
probably did not think twice about
this gray-haired figure, he has kept
his duty to protect and to serve the
community for nearly 28 years.
When Jernigan was not keeping
order at city meetings, one could
often catch him driving around the
city scanning for anything out of
place.
Jernigan always seemed to be at
the right place at the right time to
catch criminals, which has led
some people to label his mysterious
ability to sense danger a sort of
"sixth sense."
"Maybe it's because I've lived
here so long," Jernigan said, "but I
can definitely feel when something
is out of place."
Jernigan has a head packed with
memories of when his sixth sense
has proved useful.
"One day I could sense the
smell of death in the air, and I was
hoping I was wrong," he said. "But
sure enough, that night there was a
traffic fatality."
Watson, who served many
years as an officer and deputy
under Jernigan, said the chief's
ability to catch criminals in the act
was uncanny.
"The Chief was one of those
people who could wake up at 3
a.m. and catch a burglar red
handed...He has a real knack for
that, and I've never seen anything
like it.
"He had ,a sixth sense that


ved in U.S. Navy, Naval Reserve


something must be going oh here in
the city," Watson said.
Even without his sixth sense,
Jernigan has always had an
unwavering dedication to protect
the city.
Before he joined the Alachua
Police Department, Jernigan held
stakeouts to catch criminals.
One of his favorite stakeouts
was when he was trying to catch a
.person who was vandalizing a local
school. Jernigan was hiding in
bushes behind the school when the
vandal returned.
"When the vandal came back, I
told him to freeze, and believe it or
not he actually froze," Jemigan
said. "I had no police authority and
no gun, but I called the police and
they came and got him."
Jernigan said he will go to great
lengths to stop criminals and
protect his city, even without a gun.
One time he was off duty when
a call came in about a bank
robbery. Jernigan went to the scene
without a gun or uniform, but he
was still able to catch the two
robbers.
"You just do what you can," he
said. "I won't let the fact that I
doh't have a gun stop me from
catching criminals if I can."
A path set early in life
Jernigan was born in Key West
in 1950 to a Navy father, and his
love for police work first became
apparent in the third grade, he said.
"Believe it or not, my mom had
a paper from the third grade that
said I wanted to be a police
officer," he said. .
After moving around several
times, Jernigan and his family
settled in Lake City. He graduated
from Columbia High School in
1969, and he joined the Navy soon
after graduation.
Jernigan spent two years active
in the Navy and four years in the
naval reserves, and he said his
service in the military instilled
important values in him.
"The Navy made me a better
person and it taught me discipline,"
he said. "It definitely prepared me
for the police force."
After leaving the Navy,
Jernigan became a telephone
repairman for five and a half years,
which was harder than being a


police officer, he said.
While he was working as a
repairman, Jernigan went to the
police academy at night and he
volunteered as a fireman and EMT.
Jernigan had to take all calls
that came in before 5 p.m., so he
sometimes had to work late into the
night.
, He decided to take police
classes at night in preparation for
his move into the police force.
"It got to where I hated to go to
work," he said. "I felt like I had
ulcers, but as soon as I left the
telephone company the ulcers went
away completely."
Jernigan was first hired as a
police officer for the city in -1981,
while Jack Perish was the police
chief.
Within one year Jernigan was
promoted to lieutenant, and in 1996
he became the chief of police.
Jernigan said his only regret
about being the chief of police is
that he lost the ability to get out and
patrol the city on a regular basis.
"I really miss being able to do
that as much because of
administrative stuff," he said.
But Jernigan enjoys being able
to see the other officers catch
criminals and solve crimes, which
is a rewarding experience, he said.
No matter how rewarding the
police force can be, officers will
experience their share of
frustrations, too, Jernigan warned.
One of the most frustrating
things about his job was when he
put great efforts into arresting
someone and they got out of jail the
next day because of overcrowding
and budgets cuts, he said.
"It's like a revolving door," he
said. "We put people in jail and
they come right out, with hardly
any punishment for what they did."
Jernigan's dedication to justice
stems from his own experiences as
a victim. He was robbed five or six
times when he lived near
Newnansville.
"When you live in a home and
someone steals your things, you
really feel violated," he said. "So I
understand what people are going
through when they are robbed or
hurt by criminals."
The Plan
Jernigan is going to stay in

Alachua now that he is retired, but
he has plenty of plans for the free
time that will fill his days from
now on.
"I'll still be around," he said.
"But I'll be doing what I want to
do, when I want to do it. I'm
excited to have nothing to tie me
back."
Jernigan wants to fish, do some
woodworking and travel. But most
importantly, he wants to spend
more time with his two
grandchildren, who live in
Tallahassee.
"People ask me if I will get
bored fishing all the time, and.I tell
them I've been fishing all my life
and I'm not tired of it yet!" he
joked.
The Legacy
While Jernigan is busy fishing
and traveling, his legacy will loom
over the city of Alachua,
commanding a respect and
dedication for its citizens.
Most people who know
Jernigan would describe him as
being fair and treating others with
respect. "Even people I've put in
jail have told me they appreciate
the difference I've made in their
life."
"Not that I'm in a big hurry to
get out of here or anything!"'
Jernigan said.
With some 28 years of
patrolling Alachua's streets and
neighborhoods, Jemigan is hanging
up his law enforcement belt.
"He saw the department
through many transitions and
brought it a long way as the city
has grown," said Watson.
"He has served the city well and
we appreciate everything he's done
for this community.
"He was a working chief that
loved to get out there and do police
work.
"There was nothing that the
Chief wouldn't do...from
patrolling the streets and making
arrests to directing traffic," Watson
added.
In recognition of Jernigan's
contributions to Alachua, just last
week the Alachua Chamber of
Commerce awarded him with both
a rare Lifetime Achievement award
and Police Officer of the Year.

Family friendly television shows from the





60s on DVD


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer

JAG - The Complete
Sixth Season
JAG stands for Judge
Advocate General and the
series is about a group of Navy
officers who are investigators.
The show features David
James Elliott as Harm,
Catherine Bell as Mac, Patrick
Labyorteaux as Bud, and John
Jackson as A.J. The show is
family friendly, though it
might be a bit too complicated
for children. It's serious
drama. All 24 episodes come
in a nice package and I have no
reservation recommending this
product.


Mission Impossible, the
Fourth Season
If you like James Bond or
shows like The Saint, The Man
from Uncle or In Like Flint,
you might really enjoy this
show. The show is about a
group of men called the
Impossible Mission
Taskforce" or the IMF. It is
about a group of highly rained
spies and experts, who are sent
out by the Secretary, (who's
never seen) to solve
impossible missions, hence the
name Mission Impossible.
In the beginning of the
show, the assignment is given
via a tape that will self-
destruct and toward the end of
the show there are several
masks that once taken off


reveal quite a bit.
Overall, this is a great
television series and I have no
hesitation recommending this
DVD set.

The Fourth Season of
Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.
If you ask anyone who
knows the military what is the
most elite branch of the
military, they'll undoubtedly
say "the Marines." They are
put through the most rigorous
training and are ready to do
whatever it takes to protect us.
If you watch Gomer Pyle,
you might wonder about that.
The show is mainly about two
characters - Gomer Pyle,
played by Jim Nabors, and his
drill Sergeant, Vince Carter,


played by Frank Sutton.
Gomer is the most lovable
Marine you could imagine,
though he's a total goofball.
He has absolutely no idea what
is going on, but he believes the
best of everyone and
everything. He's almost like a
Forest Gump type of
individual. Then you've got
Sgt. Carter, who is his
superior, but somehow doesn't
quite know what to do with
this Marine he's stuck with.
All in all, the situations they
find themselves in are quite
hilarious. You can have a lot of
fun watching this, just realize
that it is only comedy.

Season. The show is totally
family friendly and family
safe. I have no hesitation in
recommending this DVD set.

Robot for dental training


Q: Is it true that dentists may
soon train on robots that can say
"ouch?"
A: It is indeed true. At a major
robotics convention last November
in Tokyo, Japan showed off a
number of advanced models,
including a humanoid robot fitted
with a mouthful of replica teeth for
dentistry students to work on. "Ow,
that hurt!" a female robot
complained after a young dentist
dilled too close to a robotic "nerve."
When the dentist eased oft; the robot
said, "Now, I'm OK,"
Dentistry, like all fields of
human endeavor, continues to
incorporate cutting-edge technology
and knowledge into its practice. The
Japanese robot even has a name:


Simroid, for "simulator humanoid."
Simroid has a realistic looking face,
with eyes, nose and mouth. Sensors
are embedded in the teeth to
resemble nerves, triggering the
"ouch" reflex when a student is
inaccurate or heavy-handed.
Simroid is the result of collaboration
between the doctors at Nippon
Dental University in Tokyo and
technicians at Kokoro Company.
Simroid is still undergoing
refinement Planned next is a
function that will let students inject
anesthetic into robotic gums.
Dentists around the world are
working on techniques and tools that
will make dentistry an even more
effective discipline in the future.

"A Frontier Legend" tells what happens when a very un

old John Robert has a new friend.
But, a year later, in the.spring of 1811, a second visitor 1

John Robert took his ax and began cutting the small roots that were
left. Soon Mr. Herman came back to help his son. They removed all
the old roots and filled the hole with dirt. Then, with their field work
done, they led the mules back to their little barn. The barn was near
the cabin where the family had settled just two years ago. That was
1808, when John Robert was only 8 years old.
Mr. Herman led the mules to a small pen by the barn while
John Robert went to the water trough to wash up for supper.
It had been a hot summer, and even though it was already October,
the heat refused to go away. John Robert bent over the trough,
filled his cupped hands with water and threw it into his hot, dirty
face. The cool water felt so good that John Robert closed his eyes
and lowered his entire head into the water, soaking his face, hair
and the back of his neck.
As he raised up out of the trough, John Robert shook his head to
sling off the excess water. Then, wiping the water from his face,
he opened his eyes. And there, looking straight into his face, was
the strangest looking creature John Robert had ever seen.
John Robert wanted to run, but his boots seemed to be buried
in the ground, like one of the big stumps.





Things to Think About and Do
A. John Robert and his father were clearing land. Why did
people on the frontier clear land? Atlas and Jenny were
mules. What do you call a male mule? What do you call
a female mule?
B. This story takes place in 1810. John Robert is 10 years
old. In what year was John Robert born? If his birthday is
April 22, find out on which day of the week he was born.
SUse a perpetual calendar to find the answer.
C. Today companies offer tree and stump removal for a fee.
Look through the Classified section of your newspaper and
locate businesses that offer these services. Do you think they
still use mules? Research the tools used for this today.

The good, the bad, and the indifferent


loin us at these local events


The story of the Good
Shepherd in the Gospel of Saint
John, 10:11, f.f., reminds me of
an opera or a tragedy. There is
the Good Shepherd who lays
down his life (the hero dies), the
wolf that comes to devour the
flock (the villain), and then there
is the hireling who does his job-
for pay, like an ordinary man. He
is responsible only
for what the pay is
worth, and he won't
do much else past I
that point. At first
glanoe, the hireling
doesn't seem to be .
good or bad, but
with a careful
reading of the
passage, he looks
like he is the
v i 1 a i n s THE VEN.
accomplice. LEASURE
St. John gives All Saints
us a short but Church, Ga
p r o f o u n d Aparishof
description from Christian E
Christ in which Church
Jesus uses imagery
that contrasts the characters and
sets the stage for a story where
the good, the bad, and the
indifferent meet in a brief but
magnificent literary event.
At first, we don't find much
fault with the idea of a hireling.
He is the man hired to do ajob for
someone who can't or won't do
the job himself. The hireling isn't
likely to be as dedicated to the job
as the owner or'his son would be.
He is the cheap labor, with no
personal investment in the job. If
danger occurs, who could blame
him for running to protect his
greater investment, his own life?
But in this parable told by Jesus,
the hireling is held in contempt
because he didn't risk his life for
someone else's property.
SWhile the hireling doesn't
intentionally cause harm to the
flock, the owner holds himh


I



I


accountable for any scattering or
harm done to the flock. But in the
story that Jesus is telling, the
hireling hasn't even earned the
wages because he abandons the
flock at the first sign of trouble.
The Good Shepherd is the
exact opposite of the hireling. He
takes personal responsibility for
the sheep. He is willing to stare
down the ever
|.present dangers of
beast and climate;
and, to risk his life to
protect, feed and
keep the sheep
secure.
The biggest
contrast between the
two is that the
hireling abandons
his responsibility,
OHN E. leaving the flock to
scatter, while the
nglican Good Shepherd lays
inesville. down his life for the
the sheep.
episcopal Then there is the
ever-present evil
wolf. It is always
nearer than the sheep could
imagine. In this tragedy, the wolf
and hireling work together-the
wolf is more effective if he can
make pacts with a few
disgruntled sheep and a
discontent hireling, and then have
them protect his interest in the
flock. The hireling becomes the
one who stands up for the right of
the wolf to live side by side with
the sheep. This allows the wolf to
steal sheep while at the same time
allowing the hireling to feel that
he has important friends in high
places, which is exactly why a
good shepherd is.needed.
Someone has to guide the
sheep along the narrow passages
to green pastures, where a
misstep would bring disaster.
Someone must be prepared to
carry the injured to Safety, calling
a wolf a wolf. Help for the sheep


is the calling of the Good
Shepherd and those He has called
to lead His sheep.
And that is exactly where
there is a very real problem in the
church today. Hirelings hold
places of authority and respect,
and unfortunately, at times they
are paid from the plate at the
church. The hirelings would
rather feel important than to be
responsible. They would rather
take their pay and undermine the
well being and integrity of the
flock than to take a difficult stand
on virtue, ethics, and truth.
And then we have the sheep
that hear the Good Shepherd's
voice. They may not fully
understand the shepherd's
words-after all, he is man and
they are animals. But the Good
Shepherd still can exercise his
direction and will over the sheep.
How? Consider those wonderful
words of Psalm 23, "The Lord is
my Shepherd, Ishall not want. He
makes me to lie down in green
pastures; He leads me beside the
still water.. " The sheep can be
led rather than driven because
they recognize his voice, just as a
baby knows the voice of its
mother before birth. It is the
voice of one that the sheep know
as their protector, provider, guide
and physician.
We trust our doctors when
they use medical jargon to
explain our problems to us. We
may not fully understand the
words but we have come to trust
in the person; being a Christian is
much the same. In our life with
Christ, being able to trust and
follow is a sign of our belonging
to him. And this simple trust in
God's sovereign leading is no
different than the sheep following
the voice of the shepherd. It is
trust in the love of the Good
Shepherd which 'He proves
constantly.

CPAmerica holds bake sale to end childhood hunger


Bake Sale Part of Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale National Campaign


Special to Alachua County Today
ALACHUA CPAmerica at
Progress Corporate Park is having a
bake sale as part of Share Our Strength
Great American Bake Sale, a national
campaign that mobilizes Americans to
end childhood hunger by holding bake
sales in their communities.
So far we have carrot cakes, brownies,
apple pies, rum cakes, coffee cakes and
cookies as some of the promised baked
goods for sale.
The bake sale will be held on
Wednesday, June 4 from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. at the CPAmerica Office lobby,


11801 Research Drive, Progress Park
off US Hwy 441 and the Progress
Center Building - Lobby, 13709
Progress Blvd, Alachua, off US Hwy
441.
The CPAmerica at Progress Park
team is joining the millions of people
across the country who are pledging to
be a key ingredient in ending childhood
hunger by holding bake sales in their
communities. Our bake sale number is
37411.
Nationally, more than 12 million
children are at risk of hunger. Funds
raised through this bake sale will be
used to ensure America's most


vulnerable children - those living in
poverty and at risk of hunger - get the
regular, healthy meals they need,
where they live, learn and play.
Please come and purchase baked
goods and/or bake for us. Please email
or call with your baked donation or for
directions to either site. If you choose,
you can go to bakesale@strength.org
and input our bake sale number and
make a cash donation if you are unable
to bake or come by to purchase goodies
to help end childhood hunger. Our
goal for this bake sale is $1,000.


About Share Our Strength's Great
American Bake Sale*
Share Our Strength's Great
American Bake Sale, presented by
Domino Sugar and C&H�, is a
national campaign that mobilizes
Americans to end childhood hunger by
holding bake sales in their
communities. Great American Bake
Sale proceeds are granted to
organizations in communities across
America to help provide at-risk
children with nutritious meals when
they're needed most - during the
summer, and after school. Additionally,
proceeds support Share Our Strength's


Operation Frontline", a chef-led
nutrition education program for low-
income children and families. Since
2003, more than one million people
have participated in Share Our
Strength's Great American Bake Sale,
raising nearly $4 million to make sure
no child in America grows up hungry.
Great American Bake Sale is supported
by national television partner Food
Network and national magazine
partner Family Circle magazine. For
