Gas station a possibility with Wal-Mart


By CRAIG COX and BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporters
ALACHUA - The planned Wal-Mart super
center behind McDonald's in Alachua could be
accompanied by a 20-pump gas station, two
drive-thru restaurants and a 76,084 sq. ft.
shopping center, according to a Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT) permit.
Although Wal-Mart included the designations


for several types of developments in their FDOT
application, Wal-Mart officials refute plans that
there will be a gas station built on the site.
"Originally, there was a 100-percent chance
that a Wal-Mart would have a gas station with it,"
said Wal-Mart spokeswoman Quenta Vettel. "But
that's no longer the case. There could be a gas
station, or there could not. We've found that
building a gas station does not attract any more
customers to the store than a bank or other


development."
Vettel noted the change in direction for Wal-
Mart, but said the parcels are lijcely to be sold off
to third party developers and nothing is certain.
The site could bring a gas station, as suggested in
the FDOT permit, or numerous other possibilities.
Either way, Vettel said approval from FDOT for
the Wal-Mart project would not constitute


approval for other parcels
currently owned by Wal-Mart.


including those


"Once it is determined what will be built on
the parcels, that developer will need to seek
permitting from FDOT and the City of Alachua,
just as Wal-Mart is doing," said Vettel.
Whether or not a gas station is built around
the proposed Wal-Mart in Alachua, it is clear that
considerable traffic will be generated by the
development.

City looks


to ease


CR 235


traffic woes
By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - Many motorists
passing through Alachua know all-too-
well the art of finding shortcuts' to
avoid congestion on U.S. Highway 441
during rush hours. The problem today
is becoming less about art and more
about a game of chance.
Drivers looking to head south on
County Roads 235/241 in the evenings
have often taken back roads through
neighborhoods to avoid traffic at the
U.S. Highway 441 intersection. But
zipping along the winding CR 2054 to
avoid U.S. Highway 441 usually lands
drivers in a long line of others doing
the same thing - all waiting at CR
235/241 as a seemingly endless stream
of cars passes them by.
The rural two-lane CR 2054 doesn't
have a left turn lane where it intersects
CR 235/241. Motorists hoping to turn
right onto CR 235/241 or, even dicier,
dart across the intersection are stuck in
queue with the string of left-turning
drivers who await the rare moment
when there's a long enough break in
traffic to make the turn.
The problem of traffic woes in the
area where the county roads meet
usually peaks during the evening rush
hour. But City of Alachua officials are
yet again making appeals to the Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT)
and Alachua County to deal with the
CR 235 on page A8


Are you ready?


Hurricane season begins Sunday and the Red Cross can help


Alachua County Today file photo
With hurricane season just around the corner, area officials have been preparing for the
possibility of a major storm in the coming months and encourage residents to make plans
of their own before it is too late.


By CRAIG COX and BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporters
ALACHUA - It may seem a bit of a
hassle to prepare for hurricanes which may
or may not occur and may or may not make
landfall. Should such a weather system
strike however, all of that planning and


preparation will pay off.
While forecasters predict yet another
active hurricane season, with an estimated
12-16 named storms, when the systems will
form, where their track will lead and how
strong they'll be is anyone's guess. A look

Newberry hoping



to capitalize on



new regulations


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY - Newberry
officials recently rezoned more
than five-percent of the city's
land area, and made three
changes to the Land
Development Regulations
(LDRs) in order to keep with
the city's vision for
development.
About two years ago,
Newberry was selected to take


part in a pilot program with the
state that allows city officials to
make changes to the LDRs in
portions of the city without
State approval.
Newberry officials can now
change the LDRs for the core
area, commonly referred to as
"Old Newberry," without State
approval. Prior to the
amendment, any changes that
affected over 10 acres required

'Hamming' it up

Local men make a splash with eclectic band


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
Amateur radio operators,
known as hams, and a music
group might not seem like they
have much in common, but six
local men are trying to change
that with their eclectic band.
The Hambones, with
members Ed Peritore, Earl
Slone, Phil Coultas, Ariel
Machin, Andy Bomeig and
Mac McCormick, perform a
variety of music genres at
events throughout the county.


The band was formed about
a year ago after the four
original members discovered a
similar love for music and
amateur radio. Although the
original members all use the
ham radio, the two newest
members do not.
"But we're trying to sneak
them into that," joked guitarist
Ed Peritore.
Most of the members have
been playing music for
decades, and Peritore has
played backup music for major

ALALCHUA - School
doesn't end when the last bell
rings at Alachua Elementary as
some students gather every
Tuesday and Thursday
afternoon to participate in an
after school tutoring program
called Alachua's Program .for
Childhood Success.
Four years ago, community

Kleckner sat down with
Principal Jim Brandenburg to
ask him what they could do to
kick-start a tutoring program at
his school.
Since then the program has
taken off with children of all
grades participating. The
program enables students to
receive help in various subjects
of study twice a week from
volunteers such as Sue Weller,

Getting full at the bull

El Toro opens its doors
By BRYAN BOUKARI f.
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - John and Patty I
Stockwell recently opened the much- ' i.
anticipated El Toro Mexican restaurant '


in the Rolling Oaks Plaza near
Hitchcock's Market. The restaurant has
been serving up Mexican faire for some
20 years in southwest Gainesville. But
the couple moved their established
business over 15 miles up U.S. Highway
441 to Alachua.
"I moved the restaurant [to Alachua]
because this is where the growth is,"
John Stockwell said.
Since opening, he said several of his
former patrons have visited the new El
Toro location.
Still, restaurant owner considers the
move to Alachua a good one saying, "It's
been wonderful and it's been a blessing."

HURRICANES:
Continued from page Al


Red Cross plays a vital role in disaster recovery


back at 2004 and 2005 proves that
Mother Nature spares no one when
it unleashes the furry of a storm.
But area officials say they're as
ready as ever to deal with the next
major storm event and they hope
area residents prepare for that
possibility as well.
Get a plan, get a kit, be
informed is the mantra echoed by
Laura Mager, Executive Director
of the American Red Cross of
North Central Florida (ARCNCF).
Urging residents to prepare for
the unpredictable, Mager said
having a disaster plan, disaster kit
and staying informed about
weather conditions are key to
making it through the often
wearisome times which precede
and follow a hurricane or other
major disaster.
Mager, whose organization
typically deals directly with the
public, knows first hand how
important having a plan is.
"We encourage folks to contact


us for help in putting together a
disaster preparedness kit," said
Mager.
"Having a list of the
medications, important insurance
documents, plenty of water and
food are among the most important
items to include in a disaster kit,"
she said.
Also topping the Red Cross
suggestions list is knowing the
local frequency to which a weather
radio should be tuned, an
evacuation plan and where nearby
shelters are located.
The local American Red Cross
chapter is tied in with the Alachua
County Emergency Operations
Center (EOC) and plays a vital role
in operating mass care shelters,
distributing goods for cleaning up
after disasters such as hurricanes,
and assessing the needs of
individuals in the communities
they serve following a disaster.
Tending to public utility and
infrastructure needs is often the


task of local governments. In the
City of Newberry, Mayor John
Glanzer said the town's fire
department works with the EOC to
ensure proper response in case of a
disaster.
Glanzer also noted the recent
purchase of generating equipment
to keep the fire department
operational in the event of a power
loss. He said budget cuts
prevented the City from buying
additional generators for
municipal buildings and other
sites.
The active 2004 hurricane
season helped prepare Alachua for
future disaster recovery according
to Alachua City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr.
In 2004, the Alachua Police
Department (APD) was kept alive
with the use of a home-style gas
generator. City Hall had no power
at all. Cell service was spotty
because towers didn't have
electricity.


Today, a massive generator atop
a 9,000 gallon diesel tank behind
APD and City Hall awaits the
flicker of power, at which time it
will activate and fully power both
buildings for a couple of days
without refueling.
Additional generators have
been installed at many of the city's
wastewater lift station pumps to
prevent interruption of sewer
services. The city also actively
participates in EOC training
sessions throughout the year and
maintains a disaster recovery plan.
"No amount of preparation can
completely prepare you for a
disaster, but with each one, we
take our experiences and improve
our plan," Watson said.
Anyone seeking emergency
preparedness plans, wishing to
volunteer or donate may contact
the local American Red Cross
chapter.
In addition to helping with
disaster recovery, the local chapter


also provides several services
including CPR, first aid, pet first
aid, baby sitter and many more
certifications.
Although often thought to be
funded by the federal government,
The American Red Cross doesn't
receive any federal dollars.
"We are completely funded
through the generous donations of
individuals and corporate
partners," Mager said of the
ARCNCF.
The local chapter is always'in
nbed of volunteers in specialized
areas such as nursing and more,
but appreciates the help of all
volunteers, Mager said.
The American Red Cross of
North Central Florida can ,be
reached at 352-376-4669,
redcrossncfc.org or by writing to
1724 NE 2nd St., Gainesville, FL
32609.

artists such as Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.
"We have guys who have an interest in a wide
variety of music," Peritore said. "We can play just about
anything and we have more fun than the people we play
for."
According to their web site, The Hambones play
everything from surf music and classic country to
Django and Latino music.
When The Hambones are not on the stage
entertaining themselves and strangers, the group
members can be found working or taking classes.
Tl, band has a realtorand substitute teacher; a
computer technician for the University of Florida, Nvo


prison system employees and a Publix employee.
The Hambones are looking for new members to
enhance their group, including trombone, trumpet and
saxophone players.
"We've already got some depth to our group,"
Peritore said, "but it would really enhance the band if we
got some new players. There's got to be chemistry
between the new players and the band now, however."
Right now, the band charges about $300 for a 45-
minute show.
According to The Hambone's web site, "We aint
cheap, but we can be had."

WAL-MART:
Continued from page A 1


Traffic impacts unknown


a new road which would connect the Wal-Mart to
U.S. Highway 441, all 89 acres of the planned
development (PD) must be considered even
though Wal-Mart only owns about 31 acres, or
35-percent of the land.
The entire development, including Wal-
Mart's portion and other acreage not owned by
the massive retailer, is projected to create 14,414
new trips to the area each day, Vettel said.
FDOT figures suggest some 22,000 vehicle
trips at a proposed intersection would be possible
at complete build out of the PD. FDOT officials
have said Wal-Mart's permits are on track to be
approved soon, allowing for the new intersection
which would fall between Interstate-75 and
Hitchcock's Markets.
It is unclear what kind of impact the
additional traffic generated in and around the
Wal-Mart site will have on the area roadway
network. Officials don't have projections on
which direction traffic from the site would flow
according to FDOT spokeswoman Gina
Busscher.
Busscher said FDOT also didn't know how
the Wal-Mart project would affect the already
congested nearby 1-75 interchange.
The proposed Wal-Mart store remains at
176,000 heated and cooled square feet, and more
when considering other components of the store
such as a garden center.
The Alachua store will have many of the
energy conservation features found in the new
Gainesville Wal-Mart super center store and
more, Vettel said.
"We have prototypes around the country, and
if we find the features to be energy- and cost-
efficient, we quickly place the features in all new
stores," Vettel said. "So ,the Alachua Wal-Mart
will likely have even more environmental


features than the recently-opened Gainesville
Wal-Mart."
Among the energy saving features likely to be
in the proposed Alachua store are motion-
activated lights in the freezers, skylights and
LED lighting.
The northeast Gainesville Wal-Mart super
center applied for its FDOT permits five months
after the Alachua Wal-Mart, but drainage and
road-access issues have stalled the approval of
Alachua's permits. The Gainsville site has been
open for several weeks now, while approvals for
the Alachua site are pending at FDOT.
Vettel attributed much of the delay to
challenges in dealing with traffic for the Alachua
site.
"We're hopeful that [Wal-Mart] is almost
through this process and will be moving forward
with the project as soon as we get the permits
from FDOT," she said.
The City.of Alachua requires that developers
have the necessary permits from agencies such as
the local water management district and FDOT
before applying for local plan approvals.
Wal-Mart has been approved for the drainage
permits, but a lack of staff at the FDOT has
stalled the approval of the road-access permits
according to officials at that agency.
The permit is expected to be approved within
two months, but Wal-Mart has several other
criteria to meet with the city, so construction is
not likely to begin for several more months.
Wal-Mart will be required to conduct
neighborhood meetings and an economic impact
study in addition to public hearings before it can
break ground at the site.

persons who display characteristics of a packrat.
These folks compulsively hoard everything
they possibly can. They have never met a Cool
Whip container they didn't like, a Folgers coffee
can, or a cute little "I Can't Believe it's Not
Butter" tub that didn't spin them into spasms of
joy.
I suppose, like most things in life, moderation
is the key.
But to the true sufferer of packratonitis,
moderation knows no limit when referring to
items that may possess at least a one-percent
chance of usefulness at some indeterminate
future date.
Why, who knows when that colorful little tin


conceivable nook and cranny with anything and
everything. No worry that their treasures could
consume a landfill the size of Rhode Island. The
consummate packrat is often in denial,
rationalizing that a common packrat is a collector
of miscellaneous useless objects. This is to be
differentiated from a sufferer of packratonitis
who believes his or her objects are anything but
useless; they are teeming with usefulness - just
not right now.
Being the keeper of items of immense future
value is a weighty responsibility.
The packrat's closets are full, their drawers are
crammed, and only the brave should venture a
peek under the bed. But give them credit;


sufferers of packratonitis know places to stash
items that would bewilder Scotland Yard's most
astute inspectors.
How do you know if you or one of your loved
ones is suffering from packratonitis?
Well, if you have to ask, the likelihood is the
answer is yes.
Ask yourself, can you fit 150 plastic
margarine tubs in a kitchen cupboard? Or, how
many National Geographics or Readers Digests
do you have stashed on bookshelves, in closets,
or behind the couch? Do you fill used
prescription bottles with anything and everything
...except pills? And the clincher is, do you have
enough plastic grocery bags to fill a 10X10
room?
There have been books written and self-help
columns directed at sufferers of packratonitis.
I'm not certain, but given enough time, Dr. Phil
will undoubtedly pontificate on the psychological
indicators of packratonitis. He will invite some
extraordinarily bizarre characters on national
television and try to convince them that their
penchant for collectibles is a self-inflicted social
disorder that will lead to a life of crime and
loneliness.
Sorry .Phil, take a pill...it ain't gonna

And give the pill bottle to your guests.

Amendment encourages innovative

development design


approval at the State level.
The city received final approval for the
program this January, so officials began to
create and amend the LDRs.
One of the most significant changes to
the LDRs was the creation of architectural
design standards.
These standards will minimize
development decisions based on individual
tastes and preferences. They will also set a
standard to provide a cohesive image of the
community, according to the newly enacted
ordinance.
The ordinance details other architectural
standards, including building new
businesses close to the roads to provide a
walkable community.
Parking lots must also be placed on the
side or rear of buildings, and each 40 feet of
road must have at least one canopy tree.
Many of these details are standard
throughout communities such as Alachua,
but Newberry is officially creating the
standards to promote cohesive development.
SThe city also redefined the "de minimis"
impacts of development, which means the
development will have a "non-measurable
impact." This amendment will allow
existing business owners to rent their
buildings to various businesses without
having to pay certain fees.


The amendment will allow the downtown
area to be redeveloped without creating too
much of a burden for the owners, Newberry
planning director Lowell Garrett said.
Before this amendment, if a business that
originally began as a hair salon wanted to
change to a hardware store, the owner
would have to pay some $30,000, said
Newberry Mayor John Glanzer.
These fees prevented small businesses
from moving into the city, which hurt both
citizens and the city's tax base, Glanzer
said.
The last amendment made to the LDRs
was the "Planned Development" addition,
which provides regulations to encourage
innovative development design that
conforms with the city's comprehensive
plan.
While. the city rezoned more than five-
percent of the city, it should have no effect
on future development, because the
rezoning is a technical issue, said Garrett.
Newberry annexed land from the county
recently, requiring them to rezone the land
from County Agriculture to City of
Newberry Agriculture. The zonings are
essentially the same, but to legally acquire
the land the city had to take over the zoning
as well, Garrett said.

City officials hope county and state agencies will help alleviate traffic congestion at the
intersection of county roads 235/241 and 2054.


issue.
Ideally, city officials say, they would like to
see the installation of a traffic signal. The traffic
flow would be much more manageable and safer
with intersection signalization because it would
create gaps in the flow of traffic along CR
235/241, which will help ease congestion at other
intersections on the same road, city officials say.
County officials have recently conducted
traffic studies that show the intersections do not
warrant traffic lights, but the intersections have
been deemed unsafe by drivers and city officials
alike.
Some of the drivers become impatient, so
they take even narrower side roads to get around
the traffic. This has some residents concerned
about the safety of the neighborhoods.
"I think there's legitimate concern that traffic
cutting through neighborhood streets may have
impacts on the neighbors, and we prefer that not
to happen" said Mike New, City of Alachua
Public Services Director. "But there are two sides
to every story, and there's something to be said
about interconnectivity."
City officials are also considering building a
left turn lane on CR 2054 to allow other cars to
turn right onto CR 235/241 or go straight through


the intersection.
The county, however, does not own enough
land at the intersection to build the additional
lane, so New has become creative.
New said a house close to the intersection has
been flooding because a nearby FDOT water
basin cannot handle enough of the water runoff
during rain events.
New has asked FDOT to buy the property and
expand the basin, which would allow the county
to acquire about 20 feet of property needed to
construct the turn lane.
FDOT responded to New's suggestion by
saying they will consider the idea, but as of yet,
they have not provided a definite answer.
Another way to fund the improvements to the
intersections is to have new developments pay for
their impacts on area traffic.
County officials will conduct additional
traffic counts when the University of Florida fall
semester begins, which they say will provide a
more accurate analysis of existing traffic.
Until FDOT provides the land for a turn lane,
or the county decides to fund a traffic light,
drivers will have to deal with ever-growing lines
of traffic.

A typical lunch ticket might ring up at around

dinner entrees would run about $10 - $12.
Stockwell said El Toro's specialty is its fajitas.
But customers are also often attracted by the

Ask Your Dentist e, D.D..


Bruxism
Q: My husband grinds his
teeth at night. What can we do
about it?
A: The technical name of
your husband's condition is
bruxism, derived from the Greek
and meaning, essentially, to
gnash the teeth. People with this
problem are prone to grinding
their teeth when under stress or
while they are sleeping. This can
result in sore jaws and teeth, a
dull headache, and, after time,
loosened teeth and considerable
wear on them. Bruxism can
actually crack tooth enamel,
which is the hardest element in
the body. If the condition is the
result of stress, exercise is an
excellent way to address it.


Exercise is proven successful in
reducing stress.
Another possible step for
your husband is a mouth guard
his dentist can fit him with to
protect teeth at night. The first
step is to talk with your dentist
about the condition and
determine whether an outside
factor, like stress, is at the root of
the problem. An abnormal bite or
missing teeth can also contribute
to grinding at night. Correcting
those flaws, whether through
orthodontic or prosthodontic
work, may bring the situation
under control. Your dentist is the
best source for information about
the condition and about ways to
cure or alleviate it.

lead the Narnians back to
victory from the armies of his
uncle Miraz.
This film is the second
based on C.S. Lewis'
chronicles of Naria. There are
five more stories left in the
series. The books have been
extremely successful and these
films are not going to be an
exception to this.
Some huge battles take
place and the special effects
are incredible. Several Biblical
stories come to mind when
watching the film. I noticed
right off hand the story of
David and Goliath, the
drowning of the Egyptian
army in the Red Sea, and of
course, Asian is a symbol of
the Lion of Judah, Jesus
Christ.
I thought the film was
excellent, and you'll definitely


get your money's worth. It will
be the first big blockbuster of
this summer. It is family
friendly and family safe,
though I could see that some of
the creatures could be a little
scary for the real little
children. Outside of that, I
recommend this film
wholeheartedly. .

Chapter Three - by Kay Hively
After supper, John Robert hurried outside and searched for the big
dog that had come to the water trough that afternoon. Staying
within sight of the cabin, he looked in the little barn, in the meadow,
and in the wood lot. But as the sun set and darkness began to fall,
the disappointed boy gave up his search.
Mrs. Herman was waiting for John Robert when he returned to
the cabin. Spread out on the kitchen table was a reading book.
Even though John Robert wanted to be a farmer like his dad, he
looked forward to the schooling his mother gave him each night.
For two years he had been studying with his mother as his teacher.
His reading was very good, and his arithmetic was getting better
and better.
Reading was his favorite thing to do after dark. But It was difficult
to find books on the frontier.in Tennessee. When the family moved
there from Georgia, Mrs. Herman had brought a few books. But
they had all been read three or four times.
Late last fall, Mr. Herman made a trip to
a settlement upriver to get supplies. Then,
on Christmas morning, John Robert and his //
mother found four books under the little
Christmas tree. For the rest of the winter,

"A Frontier Legend" tells what happens when a very unusual
dog shows up on the Herman farmstead in Tennessee and 10-year-
old John Robert has a new friend..
But, a year later, in the spring of 1811, a second visitor to the
farm reveals a story of historic proportions. John Robert learns
that his new dog is one of the most famous characters in American
history. John Robert also learns that a frontier can be in many
places.

Things to Think About and Do
A. Mr.Herman could not read. Do you know anyone who
does not read? Do you know anyone who can read another
language, but not English? If you could read a story or book
to someone who does not read, what book or story would
you choose? Why?
B. John Robert liked the full moon. What is a full moon?
Can you name all the moons? Draw a picture of the four
moons. What is a blue moon?
C. John Robert doesn't have many things available to him to
read. Using your newspaper, pick out four stories you think
a 10-year-old boy would find interesting. Now pick four
stories you think his mother would want to read. Are
they different or the same? Why?

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, MAY 29, 2008 t


Admission into the fellowship



of Christ


Almighty God, who showest to
them that are in error the light of thy
truth, to the intent that they may
return into the way ofrighteousness;
grant unto all those who are admitted
into the fellowship of Christ's
religion, that they may avoid those
things that are contrary to their
profession, and follow
all such things as are
agreeable to the same;
through our Lord Jesus
Christ. Amen. (A
prayer from the
Anglican Book of
Common Prayer.)
Have you ever
been through the
admission process for
a group or society? If
you were in a
fratemity or sorority THE VEN.
you had to go through LEASURE
some type of initiation All Saints
before becoming a Church, G
member. The A parish o
following phrase is Christian
from the above prayer: Church
"those that are
admitted into the fellowship of
Chfist's religion."
What exactly does that mean?
How do you go about joining the
fellowship of Christ's religion? If
you listen to the "televangelists," you
join while every head is bowed,
every eye is closed, no peeking, and
seekers lift their hand in that moment
of secrecy. How can people believe
tiat joining the fellowship ofChrists
religion is done when no one can
witness the event being done in
absolute secrecy? Or, maybe joining
is done by a more visible sign,
walking to the front of the church
with others and saying a simple
prayer. Even though this way is a
little more public, it invites people
into the fellowship of Christ's
religion on the basis of a decision
made by the individual.
Obviously, the Anglican


forefathers weren't quite visionary
enough to teach this way of joining
the fellowship of Christ's religion in
the 21st'century, with its mass media
opportunities. Their answer is
clearly stated, "They are admitted."
That doesn't sound so much like the
absolute decision of the individual as
it does that others
make it on behalf of
the individual. That is
not to say individuals
are forced into
n . admission against
. their will; if they are
adults, they haveto be
informed and be
Swilling-and,
admission into
l Christ's religion
involves something
IOHN E. more than an
individual's consent
knglican This strikes at the
linesville. very heart of
the American religion
episcopal when it is suggested
that there is something
more to religion than
individual feelings, individual
expression, and an individual's right
to believe whatever they want By
exalting the individual, the
American church generally has
become liberalized, demoralized,
and apostatized, keeping itself from
being a true society, being'in true
fellowship, or a Church family. We
should strive to build each other up
and strengthen the fellowship
through a common belief, a
common prayer and a common
participation in the Sacraments.
The admission into Christ's
fellowship takes place through the
Sacrament ofBaptism, and there are
six conditions that must be met
before admission can take place.
These conditions are outlined in the
Anglican Church as: (1) Dost thou
renounce the devil and all his works,
the vain pomp and glory of the


world, with all covetous desires of
the same, and the sinful desires of the
flesh, so that thou wilt not follow, nor
be led by them? (2) Dost thou
believe in Jesus the Christ, the Son of
the Living God? (3) Dost thou
accept him, and desire to follow him
as thy Saviour and Lord? (4) Dost
thou believe all the Articles of the
Christian Faith, as contained in the
Apostles' Creed? (5) Wilt thou be
baptized in this Faith? (6) Wilt thou
then obediently keep God's holy will
and commandments, and walk in the
same all the days of thy life?
Each of those questions requires
a positive response from anyone
wanting to be admitted into the
fellowship of Christ's religion. Also,
this is a lifetime commitment, which
the sixth question clearly states.
Admission into true fellowship
in Christ's religion means that you
are admitted based on your vows to
keep the faith, to follow Christ, to
renounce Satan, and to live
according to God's will...and the
admission carries with it a
responsibility to remain steadfast in
the Baptismal vows. Great
weakness has come to Christ's
religion because of a failure of those
admitted members to keep the
simple act of fellowship. What we
call the church of Jesus Christ is
much more than any club, society, or
organization-it is the living Body of
Jesus Christ, held together by His
Spirit through a common
affirmation of the Faith, a common
voice in prayer, a common
participation in Holy Communion.
Let us reaffirm our baptismal vows
and our common desire to
strengthen those around us who are
weak and let us reaffirm what is
meant by this fellowship:
Communion with each other as we
commune with our Lord, our ever-
present Saviour.

Special to Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE - Veterans
are a special group of people who
have so bravely put their lives on
the line for our country, and more
than 50,000 of them die every
month. Yet many do not realize
that included in their benefits
package is access to hospice and
palliative care. The Veterans'
Health Care Eligibility Reform
Act of 1996 states that the
Department of Veterans Affairs
(VA) "must offer to provide or
purchase hospice and palliative
care services that VA determines
an enrolled veteran needs."
Veterans have earned the right to
comprehensive, compassionate
care at the end of life and should
take advantage of it.
In 2002, the VA established a
national network of Hospice-
Veteran Partnerships (HVPs) to
improve hospice access for
veterans. Other goals of HVPs are

strengthening relationships
between community hospices and
VA facilities, and initiating
planning to get the message about
end-of-life care out to veterans in
the community. So far, 33 states
including Florida have established
HVPs, and another eight states
have expressed interest in creating
HVPs. Activities that HVPs can
engage in include conducting an
assessment to determine the needs'
of veterans in the community, and
organizing community outreach
programs for veteran groups about
advance care planning and other
resources available to them.
Florida hospices often go the
extra measure in expressing
thanks to a veteran in their care for
his or her service to our nation. An
example of this includes awarding'
pins offered by the Hospice-
Veteran Partnership of Florida.
Haven Hospice has implemented
this through its Veterans
Recognition Program
spearheaded by Colonel (USAF,
Ret) Fran Martin, Haven's
volunteer veteran liaison. Through
this program, a veteran in a U.S.
military uniform places a pin on


the shirt of the hospice patient and
reads a statement of thanks.
Martin takes photos, with the
permission of the patient and
family, during each pinning
ceremony. On one occasion, the
photo taken at the pinning
ceremony was the first picture the
husband and wife had together in
20 years. Martin gives the family a
copy of the photo as well as places
a copy in a scrapbook she keeps of
all veterans she has visited.
"A veteran in hospice care
today may not see another
Veterans Day or Memorial Day,"
Martin said. "We are a free nation
today thanks to their service and
sacrifice. We can never thank
them enough, but the Hospice-
Veteran Partnerships give us
another opportunity to say thank
you."
