Although the Exactech team were the winners of Saturday's first-annual All-Star
Charity Fundraiser softball tournament, the real winner was the Arthritis Foundation

By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - Injuries and heat did
not hinder the first-annual All-Star
Charity Fundraiser softball tournament
last weekend, which raised over $9,000.
The event, which was held at the


Hal Brady Recreation Complex,
brought together 14 biotechnology
firms from Gainesville and Progress
Corporate Park for friendly competition
and fundraising for 13 charities.
Each team donated $250 to the
FUNDRAISER on page A8


Busscher said the Gainesville FDOT
office has one staff member reviewing the

police chief



announced


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - An Alachua County Sheriffs
Office (ACSO) officer has been named the
interim police chief of the Alachua Police
Department (APD) while a permanent
replacement is found for Robert Jernigan,
who retired last week.
Capt. Joel DeCoursey will act as the
police chief while City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr., and other city officials find a
replacement, which is expected to take about
eight weeks.
DeCoursey was born in the city of
Alachua. and he has been in the police force
for nearly 18 years. He has special training in
community-oriented policing, human
diversity, jail administration and. line
supervision, and he became a captain at the
Sheriffs Office in June 2007.
S"This is an honor and a privilege to have
the opportunity to come back home and be in
the community I love and grew up in,"
DeCoursey said at the May 20 City
Commission meeting.
DeCoursey joked his only standing is to
go back to the Sheriffs Office.
ACSO Sheriff Sadie Darnell allowed
Watson to make his own choice from her
command staff for the interim position.
"[DeCoursey] is from the community,
knows the people and is well-respected,"
Watson wrote in a press release.
City officials selected DeCoursey, a
department outsider, instead of Deputy Chief
Clayton Reiter who is currently on

"The most rewarding labor
is to bring a house of worship
to a community . . the next
closest is an institution of
higher education," said Santa
Fe Community College
President Jackson Sasser at
Saturday's groundbreaking of
the Santa Fe Community
College Charles and Nancy
Perry Corporate Training
Center in Alachua. And
indeed, the occasion may have
seemed like something of a
miracle for this small city of
8,500 residents, many of
whom joined in the celebration
as the first spades of soil were
turned with golden-tipped
shovels.

The choice of Alachua as the site for the
satellite campus is also strengthened by the
addition of a $4.7 million state-of-the-art
science building at Santa Fe High School
which broke ground just weeks ago. The
high school facility will include eight
.classrooms with laboratories equipped with
the latest technologies available for
students, and is expected to create a
pipeline for students looking to enter the
biotechnology field after graduation, to
progress through the Santa Fe Community
College Corporate Training Center, and
then into Progress Corporate Park.
Present at Saturday's ceremony was the
entire contingent of Alachua city
commissioners: Mayor Jean Calderwood,
Commissioners Bonnie Burgess, Gib
Coerper, Orien Hills, and James Lewis, as
well as City Manager Clovis Watson, Jr.
City officials have gone on record
recognizing the value of the training center
not only as a conduit for producing a more
educated workforce to work in the
expanding biotechnology industry in the
town, but also as a critical component in
increasing educational support services and
linking access to postsecondary education
for local citizens.

A pie in the face doesn't
usually bring to mind
educational activities, but all
that changed on Thursday, May
8 for faculty, students, and
parents attending Mebane
Middle School's annual spring
arts festival. All grade levels
participated in the activities
which included a reading
workshop, pie throwing, a
student art exhibit, and an
archery tournament, as well as
skits and band performances.
Booths were set up throughout
the Mebane Middle School
campus, offering fun in skill
and luck from putting for a
hole-in-one to a cool whip pie
in the face. Proceeds went
toward fundraising efforts for a
new technology lab at the
school. Chicken dinners, soft
drinks and popcorn were all
available as part of the
fundraiser as well.
After the band performed an
outdoor concert in the
courtyard, the auditorium filled
with parents and students who
participated in a reading
workshop: Mysteries in the
Middle. Parents were
encouraged to sit with their
children while watching eight
skits, which revealed clues to
the mystery of the kidnapped
mascot. As each skit was
performed, eight different
reading strategies were used.
But the play, Mysteries in the
Middle, isn't a typical middle
school drama, and included
many characters played by
Mebane's teachers and
administrators.

Because of his perseverance
and dedication to his team, the
5-foot-10-inches defensive end
has received a football
-scholarship to Huntingdon
College in Montgomery,
.Alabama, which covers about
-85-percent of his tuition.
Witt is going to major in
political science at the four-year
United Methodist university,
which has about 80.0 students.
Although Witt has plenty to


look forward to at college, he
has had great experiences with
Santa Fe High School that he
will always remember, he said.
"My favorite experience at
Santa Fe was when we beat
Taylor County this year for the
first time in three years," Witt
said. "That was just a big
morale booster for everyone."
Witt first started playing
football when he was in the 9th
grade. He fell in love with
football, and he turned all of his
attention to the game.
"I did the weightlifting team
my sophomore and junior years,
but I wasn't really involved with
much else at the school because
my passion was with football,"

Camping -

Memorial Day weekend is a time when people
head out of town for a few days of rest and
relaxation. And instead of staying at the Holiday-
Inn-Hilton-Suites, some folks go camping - in
tents, campers and RVs.
According to some important researchers with
impressive sounding credentials,
camping is the number one outdoor
vacation activity in America. Most
adult campers are married with
children at home, which explains why
they go camping rather than staying at k
the Ritz-Hilton. I
Camping under the stars elicits
images of clear cool nights, stars
shining down brilliantly from the
heavens and happy campers enjoying
an ambience of comfort, serenity and
camaraderie.
That my friends, is a fantasy. Ellen B(
There was a short period of time
when I believed that camping was for everyone.
Now I know better. Camping is like a heaping
plateful of Brussels Sprouts - you either love it or
hate it. There is no middle ground.
The unadulterated truth is that camping can
aptly be described as an adventure, and is
definitely not a one-size fits all type of activity.
Some of us who appreciate the finer things in life
such as dry clothes, insect-free eating and life-
sustaining temperatures have improvised to create
our own reality ,when thrown into the great
wilderness. We also appreciate bathrooms with
hot showers and flushing toilets, or any toilets for
that matter. Running water such as puddles on the


MNCki


adventure and fantasy


ground simply do not qualify.
How well I know that the trials of camping on
a rocky slope are only surpassed by camping at the
bottom of the slope - in the rain. And I firmly
believe there is an unwritten rule that the
likelihood of rain is inversely proportionate to the
water repellant rating of the tent. Not
a pretty sight.
-. And if winter camping in the
elements is appealing to anyone,
S although I've not actually ever known
such a person, do them a favor, take
them aside, and discuss cold weather
' survival skills. Make sure they
understand they. should place their
tent in a location that will catch the
sunrise in the morning, thus aiding in
melting off any ice or frost that may
. have formed during the night, and that
ukari includes the ice crystals cementing
their toes together.
Some Daniel Boones appreciate roughing it in
the wild, and the more primitive the camping and
challenging the conditions, the better. For the rest
of us, all it takes is a little rain storm to have a
major disaster on our hands as we watch our
belongings fill with mud and water, some floating
away beyond eyesight. Or worse yet as we realize
it really is as cold as we feel, and there is no water,
only a cold hard layer of ice. Nothing is quite as
effective at putting the kibosh on a campout as a
pair of frozen Fruit-of-the-Looms.
While some diehard campers may scoff at the
amenities the rest of us insist upon, I have never
known a fellow camper to turn down a hot


unburned meal and a cushy chair in pursuit of the
"real camping experience." Much like the children
who camp out in the backyard and make it until
around 1 a.m. before sneaking back inside the'
house, most humans gravitate toward pleasure and
away from pain.
And don't forget the "uninvited camper." I
have seen multi-winged and multi-legged insects
that are simply beyond rational identification.
These are not the typically pestiferous but docile
Florida love bugs. These Machiavellian pests
aren't satisfied with windshields and bumpers,
these guys are eclectic, preferring pockets, as in
.your shirt, doing the backstroke in your drink, and
lying in wait when you open the flap to the tent or
the door to your camper. Bugs are by nature quite
conniving, changing their appearance at will, from
large to small, from flat to round, and always
flexible enough to winnow their way through even
the smallest scale screening. I, generally tend to
ignore them, but have yet to be comfortable with
crunchy applesauce.
Don't get me wrong, camping can be fun, and it
doesn't have to take place in a remote Tibetan
village with only a lean-to, a can of Spam and a
Sherpa guide to qualify as a bona fide camping
experience. When accompanied with the
appropriate diligence to detail, comfort and
provision, camping can be the ultimate holiday
experience for all the family, not quite a fantasy,
but an adventure nonetheless.

we had from the accident
earlier this [school] year," she
said.
Jaggers and Coppock were
both set to graduate in the
coming weeks and had plans
for the future. Jaggers was to
join the Navy and become a
chaplain while Coppock was
reviewing several football
scholarship offers, according to
Atria.
Both students were active in
the Future Business Leaders of
America club and involved
with the school's student body.
Jaggers and Coppock also
attended the Jonesville Baptist
Church together.
School officials started their
week on Sunday evening when
they held a special meeting at
the school to talk with students
about the accident and provide
grief counseling.
"We wanted to disseminate
correct information about the
accident and provide any

support we could for the
students at our school," Atria
said.
Grief counselors have
remained on-hand during the
week and school officials have
provided sympathy cards for
students to give to the families
and banners for students to
write notes on.
"One of the most difficult
things in all of this is to try and
make sense of these tragedies,"
said Atria who added that the
school community has been
"relying on patience, time and
support to get through the last
several months."
Memorial Services for
Richard Jaggers will be on
Thursday, May 22 at 3 p.m. at

permit applications have,"
Busscher said.
The permit approval process
has taken longer, however,
because the FDOT has refused
Wal-Mart's permit requests more
than once.
Wal-Mart requested
ingress/egress access onto U.S.
441, and the company will build a
road that will serve other parcels
as well.
While Wal-Mart is only
developing a portion of the land
along the proposed roadway, it
must account for all of the
possible drainage from other
parcels of land surrounding it.
The roadway Wal-Mart
proposes to build includes ditches
that ultimately feed water into
FDOT drainage systems.
However, a 30-inch culvert that
carries water from the south side
of U.S. 441 to the north side
would not be able to handle the
runoff from the sites, and U.S.
441 could potentially flood.
The FDOT also found
problems with the projected
traffic counts that Wal-Mart
produced.
Wal-Mart has since adjusted
their site plan and road access
plans to meet FDOT standards.


approval process expected to take three months


Wal-Mart cannot submit their
site plan to the city for review
until the FDOT has granted the
company the permits, according
to Wal-Mart spokeswoman
Quenta Vettel.
"We've been set to submit
everything to the city for a while
*now," Vettel said. "We've just
been waiting on the FDOT to
clear our permits. I don't know
why it's taking so long."
FDOT officials do not believe
they are preventing Wal-Mart
from submitting their site plan to
the city, and they are not going to
rush the permit process, Busscher
said.
City planner Justin Tabor said
Wal-Mart can submit their
application to the city without an
FDOT permit, but before the
Zoning and Planning Board can
approve the application, the
FDOT permit must be approved
as well.
Wal-Mart must also meet two
conditions before they can submit
the application to the city.
They must first hold a pre-
application conference with city
officials, in which they will


discuss any concerns with the
project.
Wal-Mart must then hold a
neighborhood meeting to inform
area residents about the
development and address other
concerns.
Once Wal-Mart submits the
application to the city, the
approval process will take at least
Three months, Tabor said.
With or without the FDOT
permit, Wal-Mart still has several


requirements to meet before they
can begin construction.
"They'll get the permit,"
Busscher said, "it's just a matter of
time. We aren't going to rush
through with anything."
The FDOT permit for the
Wal-Mart Supercenter that
opened in Gainesville two weeks
ago was submitted five months
after the Alachua permits were
submitted.

house on May 8 at the
Alachua Chamber of
Commerce's annual banquet.
During the dinner, the gavel
was passed from outgoing
President Don James to
newly-elected President
Linda Rice-Chapman.
Chapman was also
recognized by the business
organization as volunteer of
the year for her work with
numerous activities
including her leadership in a
tutoring program at Alachua
Elementary. Chapman has
also led the membership
committee to boost the
number of businesses that
are members of the chamber.
Alarion Bank and the
Wal-Mart distribution center
were awarded with
businesses of the year.
Alachua Elementary School
Principal Jim Brandenburg
commended Alarion Bank
for getting involved with
local programs. Wal-Mart,
meanwhile, has financially
contributed to Alachua's
schools and recreation
programs, Brandenburg
said.
Retired Alachua Police
Chief Robert Jernigan
received a Lifetime
Achievement award and was
recognized as Officer of the
Year. Jernigan retired last
week after 28 years on
Alachua's police force.
Chapman presented past
president James with an
award of appreciation for
leading the Chamber of
Commerce into new
ventures over the last year,
including a new chamber
directory and bringing
different speakers to the

month.

toward the tournament for the
first- and second-place teams.
The winner of the tournament,
Exactech, won about $3,095 for
the Arthritis Foundation, and the
second-place team, OxThera,
won about $1,326 for the
Oxalosis and Hyperoxaluria
Foundation.
The charity event also
donated 300 meals to the St.
Francis House, which provides
for low-income and homeless
people.
Several players were injured
in the tournament, including a
person who was hit in the back of
the head by a softball. Other
players had torn ligaments and
foot and ankle injuries.
Despite the injuries,
organizers consider the event a
success, and they plan to expand
the tournament to include
biotechnology industries in
another city. The winner from the
Alachua tournament will play
against the winner from the other
city's tournament.
"We really look forward to
doing it again next year," said

National Treasure II, The

Book of Secrets on DVD


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer

One of the best films to
come out this past year was
National Treasure II, the Book
of Secrets.
On May 20, the film was
released on DVD as a two disk
set and is definitely worth its
weight in gold. (If you've seen
the film, you understand why I
used that expression) Ben
Gates' forefathers are accused
of being involved in a
conspiracy to kill President
Lincoln. He sets out to clear
the family name, and the only
way he can do so is to find the
lost treasure of a city of gold.
If you recall, in the first
film he had to steal the
Declaration of'Independence.
If you thought that was


difficult, try this assignment.
This time, he has to find a clue
inside a desk in Buckingham
Palace, find another clue on a
desk in the oval office and find
a secret book in the Library of
Congress.
Now, if you think that's
difficult, top that with also
having'to kidnap the President
of the United States. Besides
that, there are some really well
choreographed car chases
through London and
Washington DC, and the film
also takes us to Paris. Put all of
this together and you've got
one big action packed flick
that is enjoyable to watch.
Like the first film, this
film also is like a puzzle, there
are many riddles and word
games that Ben Gates has to
decipher.


When the last film came
out, I did an interview with
Hunter Gomez, who played
the young Ben Gates in the
beginning of the film. Since
then I've become good friends
with him and his family and
I've put together his website;
huntergomez.com. So, I've got
a little inside information to
report in this article that you
won't-find anywhere else. It's
not even discussed on all of the
many extras that are on the
second disk of this DVD set.
If you're reading this,
you'll be one of the first
people to know that Hunter is
in the film too. Now, before
you go looking for him among
all of the scenes with the huge
crowds, I'll give you a couple
of clues, just like they do in the
movie. Go to Hunter Gomez'


website and look for an old
headshot of him and then
watch the film and find
Hunter. The first correct
person to let me know will get
picture autographed picture by
Hunter. The deadline is the end
of May. You can contact me at
my email address:
keesboer@positive-
entertainment.com. Or you can
look through the newspaper
for my computer ad and there
is my phone number.
Going back to the DVD
set, the second disk has quite a
few extra featurettes on the
making of the film, and is well
worth the money.
The film is family friendly,
although it does indicate that
the character of Ben Gates is
living together with his
fiance. Outside of that, I have


no hesitation of
recommending this
film.
Editor's Note:
Today Entertainment
Writer Kees Boer is

Compassion
International, * an

children in developing

father and son talked about the dog, the cabin door opened
s. Herman stepped outside. As she searched for her husband'
,Mrs. Herman spotted the big dog. Her eyes got very big,
th a cry of surprise, she jurrped back into the cabin and
d the door. Mr. Herman laughed and then put his hand
on's shoulder and said they should go in for supper. John
isked what to do about the dog. Mr. Herman said the best
as leave it alone and see what happened.,
started toward the cabin, John Robert walked backward
tuld see what the dog would do. The big dog just watched
oy and his father went inside. John Robert immediately ran
idow and looked out. The dog was still standing by the

supper, Mr. Herman teased his wife for being afraid of the

nd of wild creature had wandered out of the woods.
bert could hardly pay attention to supper. He wanted
ck to the window and see if the dog was still in the yard,
another made him stay at the table until the family had
eating.
Mrs. Herman gave John Robert permission to leave the
quickly, he ran to the window and looked out at the
ough. The big black dog was gone.



Things to Think About and Do
A. Have you ever had a stray dog come to your house? If
one came to your yard, what should you do? Does your
community have a Humane Society? Invite someone from
the Humane Society to visit your class and talk about
stray animals.
B. The strange dog is very large. Make a list of eight large
dogs and eight small dogs. Choose your favorite dog on
each list and then rank them in order with your favorite
dog being number one.
C. Some newspapers publish information from local shelters
on pets available for adoption. Look for this in your
s, newspaper. Create an ad that would encourage someone
S to adopt a homeless animal.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, MAY 22, 2008 D


Finding the finish line


Every life is like a
marathon. There is a beginning
and an end, with markers along
the way. A good marathon
runner will not begin the race
looking 41.3 kilometers down
the road. He will strive to
successfully make it to the first
marker and then the next, until
the race is completed. His race
is a bunch of shorter races.
When each goal has
been achieved he .
finds he has run the
full marathon
successfully. M "
Life is like that.
We are born and we
die. We do not start
out looking to the ,
end, but rather to the ' 'i
markers along the '___
way. Some of life's REV. LE
markers are starting TRAINA
school, turning 13, New Life
learning to drive, Chapel, G
graduation, a career,
marriage, turning 40 and
retirement.
God has given us markers
not established by society, but
rather by Him. They are His
plan for our life. He lays out the
race for us and it is our
responsibility to identify the
course, and to follow it from
one marker to the next. When
we do, we 'will find that we
have run a bunch of short races
which accomplish the marathon
of life in Christ.
How can we identify the
markers along the way? How
can we successfully reach these
markers? There are five
principles to guide and
empower us which are
interconnected and build upon
each other. If we approach them
out of order, we will not
Progress in the race of life. The


'1o
O

C(
a


five principles are:
1. We must Ponder. Take
time to be in God's Word and
ponder the truths that we find
there. The Bible gives us our
basic instructions for life and
lays out the rules for godly
living. The Bible helps us to
distinguish things that are right
from things that are wrong. As
the Word feeds our souls and
fills our minds, our
decision making
will begin to align
with God's Word.
7 ,N Along life's
S." highway we will
face many choices
and we need to be
S.,' j equipped to make
S1' the right ones.
2. We must
NARD R. Pray. Prayer
connects us to the.
community living God, to
inesville. Whom we take our
questions and from
Whom we seek to hear. Often it
is His Word, which we have
pondered, that will come back
to us, giving us answers to our
questions; sometimes it is His
still soft voice. Too often people
put prayer at the end of
something instead of at the
beginning. We cry out, "God
get me out of this," instead of
beginning with, "God direct my
steps today." Pondering God's
Word and praying are critical to
reaching life's markers in
Christ.
3. We must have Passion.
Many seek for passion through
exciting events or uplifting
fellowship. Encouragement is
necessary but does not develop
passion. Such events may spark
an interest which leads us to
ponder and pray, but passion
results from a life spent in


God's Word and in prayer. God
establishes in us the passions
we have, passions which are
indicators that point us to the
next marker in life. He wants us
to be passionate about our
ministry and serve Him where
our passions lie. This is how He
directs us to fulfill His will and
purpose on earth.
4. We must have Power.
Power comes from God when
we have been in His Word and
in prayer. Power comes when
passion has begun to burn and
brings focus to our journey. The
power is His Spirit,
strengthening and equipping us
to succeed for Him. God does
not -indiscriminately give
power. We do not start with
power and then passion, but
rather by studying the Bible and
praying. Then, when passion
grows, power comes.
5. We must have Purpose.
When we have been in the
Word of God and are praying,
when passion has arisen and
power has been given, our
purpose will be clear, and
reaching the marker will be
achievable.
Too often we design a plan
and seek empowerment, hoping
to gain passion. We pray for
God to bless our plan and seek
Scripture to back it up. This is
all backwards. We must start in
His Word, be in prayer, and
seek answers to our questions,
desiring to hear from Him. God
gives us passion which wells up
in our hearts. Power comes to
the willing and prepared.-
Purpose comes into focus when
we are ready to achieve the goal
God has laid before us.
I ask you to ponder this as
you seek to serve God.
