Electric rates may rise


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA The cost of
energy has become a touchy
subject lately as natural gas and


oil hit record
highs almost
daily. To add to
the worries, city
officials are in
the process of
negotiating a
new wholesale
power deal that
will potentially
increase the
prices Alachua
residents pay for
electricity.

said they are


trying to avoid raising
electricity rates, but rising fuel
costs and the new contract may
become too much of a burden.


"The city has not raised its
electric rates for 14 years, and
that continues to be our
objective," said Mike New,
City of Alachua Public Works
Director. "With the increasing
cost of fuel and

HAWTHORNE The city
of Hawthorne, will be getting
about 599 new neighbors if a
new project is approved in the
city.
Elite Resorts wants to build
an RV park near 8027 SE 225th
Street and Little Orange Lake
on about 170 acres. However,
the company needs a large
scale comprehensive plan
amendment on about 34 acres
to accommodate the
development.
While the project has been
in the works for some time, it
will be another 10 months to a
year before construction is
likely to commence.
The development, which is
currently being dubbed "Elite
Resorts at Little Orange Lake,"


is projected to have 599
parking pads equipped with
hookups for water, sewer, cable
and electricity.
The site would not be home
to mobile homes, as they are
not permitted in Hawthorne's
city limits.
Current plans also call for a
marina, a clubhouse and
swimming pools for its
residents, who will likely use
the park for vacation homes.
The, development represents a
growing trend among retirees
in northern states seeking
warmer climates in the winter
season.
The Hawthorne Planning
and Zoning Board will hold a
public meeting to consider the
proposed large scale
comprehensive plan
amendments on June 19 at 5:30

First ever Puttin' on the Gritz



brings big bucks


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA They seemed to
be the ingredients for a disaster.
Take some grits, pour in a little
wine, and add over 100 people. Put
them in a room for a couple hours,
have a few taste tests for charity's
sake and voila, out comes $4,000.
That's what happened Saturday
night when employees of SunState
Federal Credit Union's Alachua
Branch hosted the area's first ever
Puttin' on the Gritz, which was
open to the public. The event was
organized to raise funds for the
American Cancer Society's Relay
for Life.
An estimated 130 people
attended the charity gala, with a

Ask Your Dentist by-Douga M.


Periodontist "


Q: What is a periodontist?
A: A periodontist is a dentist
who specializes in the
prevention, diagnosis and
treatment of gum disease.
Periodontistry is one of the
many areas of dental specialty
that require training beyond the
education that earns a dental
degree, either a DDS Doctor of
Dental Surgery or DMD-
Doctor of Dental Medicine.
(The difference between the
degrees is purely semantic. Each
has the, same education
requirements as set by the
American Dental Association's
Commission on Dental
Accreditation). The word has
Greek root, "peri" meaning


"around," and "odont," the word
for tooth.
A periodontist is a critical
figure in determining whether a
person is a candidate for dental
implants. Since some 75-percent
of Americans have some form
of gum disease, periodontists
play a significant role in
addressing the oral health needs
of the country. Your dentist, of
course is also trained to
recognize the signs of gum
disease. On your next visit, talk
with your dentist about whether
you should see a periodontist
and ask your dentist about some
of the other fields of dental
specialty.

BO DIDDLEY:
Continued friom page A I

Diddley received star on Hollywood Walk of Fame


In a tribute to the musician,
the 14th Annual Yulee Railroad
Days, which is scheduled to
take place on Saturday in
Archer, has been renamed this
:year as Yulee Diddley Days.
The event celebrates Florida's
first major railroad and was to
'feature the Bo Diddley Family
'Band, although the Rock and
"Roll Hall of Famer was not
going to play. But the band is
not on the roster because of
Diddley's passing on Monday.
In honor of the influential
musician, County
Commissioner Rodney Long
will present a proclamation
according to event organizer
Phil Denton. Diddley's classic
Ford Mustang is slated to be in
the parade, draped with a black
ribbon in honor of the longtime
Archer resident, Denton said.
He encouraged area residents to
visit Yulee Diddley Days this





First i


weekend and offer condolences
which will be collected for
Diddley's family.
Diddley is most often cited
for his signature "Bo Diddley
beat," a syncopated 5/4 pattern.
The taut, rumba-like beat
has powered hundreds of rock
and pop records, including Tom
Petty's "American Girl,"
George Michael's "Faith" and
Bruce Springsteen's "She's the
One."
Diddley claimed to have
adapted the beat from music he
heard in church, from trying to
play the Gene Autry song
"Jingle Jangle" and from
attempting to play his guitar
like a drum.
He is also known for his
rectangular-bodied Gretsch
guitar, which was nicknamed
"The Twang Machine."
Diddley was born as Ellas
Otha Bates on Dec. 30, 1928, in


McComb, Mississippi.
Ile was raised by his
mother's cousin, Gussie
McDaniel, with whom he
moved to Chicago at the age of
seven and whose surname he
took, becoming Ellas
McDaniel.
Diddley received a star on
Hollywood's Walk of Fame and
a lifetime achievement award in
1999 at the Grammy Awards.
He performed well into
2007, until he suffered a stroke
in May, and he had a heart
attack in August.
Diddley is survived by his
brother, the Rev. Kenneth
Haynes of Biloxi, Mississippi;
his children, Evelyn Kelly,
Ellas A. McDaniel, Tammi D.
McDaniel and Terri Lynn
Foster; 15 grandchildren; 15
great-grandchildren; and three
great-great-grandchildren.

antique auction and quilt
sale will be held at Archer
United Methodist Church.
Visitors can also visit the
antique car show and arts
and crafts booths.
The parade will begin at
10 a.m. and will feature the
Southern Pride Mounted
Drill Team. Denton said
he's expecting the parade to
be spectacular, with
possibly hundreds of horses
participating.
The entertainment for the
event will include groups
such as Silverwolf, Lost
Safari Drummers, Archer
Cloggers and Willing
Hearts.


.ers excel at reading


Correction: In last week's edition
of Alachua County Today, first grader
Nyla Mayes.pictured in the photo to the
left was misidentified. Alachua County
A Today regrets the error.


The three-day
celebration follows the route
of the historic cross-state
Florida Railroad.
The Florida Railroad,
built before the Civil War to
provide a coast-to-coast rail
shipping route, stretched
155 miles from Fernandina
on the Atlantic to Cedar Key
on the Gulf of Mexico,
according to the event's web
site.
The celebration is held
on the first week of June
because its visionary, David
Levy Yulee, was born on
June 12, 1810.
Yulee was Florida's first
U.S. senator, and he lived in
Archer on the Cotton Wood
Plantation.

Taters for all


I like potatoes. In fact, I think most people
around here like potatoes.
So, for all the potato aficionados, this is for
you, and you heard it here first:
IYP is now.
Yes, indeed, in all its great wisdom, The
United Nations has declared that
2008 is the International Year of the
Potato thus IYP.
I must confess that I have
wondered what those 192 foreign
"politicomundos" who call the
United Nations their home have '-
been doing all this time.
Now I know.
I like to think of myself as
intelligent as the next gal, -,-''
sometimes a bit more, and -
sometimes not.
But my impression of the Untied
Nations was a gathering of self- Ellen B
serving individuals from around the
world who, for kicks, hang out in
New York City, wear headphones and park
illegally without fear of retribution.
Apparently I was wrong.
They are members of a forward thinking
body banking on the International Year of the
Potato to raise awareness of the importance of
the potato as a magic bullet of global magnitude
- abating hunger, poverty and threats to the
environment.
These international Einsteins would have us
know that potatoes are a potentially useful food'
crop that can be easily grown in many parts of
the world as a source of nutritious food.
According to these political purveyors of


potatoes, the common spud is headed for
stardom and will become the superstar celebrity
dish of the decade. Forget your sushi, your
Poached Salmon/Bernaise, and your Tahini
Garlic Peta Chips.
Because today is the day of the poached Irish
potato, the fried garlic potato chip,
and tater tot Florentine.
i.. And I have no problem with that,
'- ".. except many of us have been
blessing potatoes on our tables for
Many years. We have been baking,
roasting, boiling, mashing,
steaming and frying our tubers for
: J some time.
But get this now the UN wants
"', to us fully embrace potatoes!
No kidding.
r Be still, my heart.
Where have these bozos been?
ukari With their heads under a subway
car sucking exhaust fumes?
It may just be that potatoes have
been regarded as food for the masses, thus the
rationale for the lack of respect for the potato
by the UNers.
Interestingly enough, the UN proclaimed
2004 as the International Year of Rice (IYR).
And look where we are today.
No wonder that in all their sagacity, this
prestigious gathering of self proclaimed
agriculture commodity prognosticators is
pushing potatoes, rather than the ever elusive
rice that has all but disappeared from some
grocery shelves.
Granted, potatoes have received a lot of bad
press about being too starchy and being the arch


enemy of dieters. But prepared correctly,
potatoes are not a fattening food. Potato
researchers (and yes, they do exist) will readily
tell us that potatoes contain vitamin C, iron, Bl.
B3, B6 and minerals such as potassium,
phosphorus and magnesium, and contains
folate, pantothenic acid and riboflavin. I don't
know what all this means, but it does sound
impressive.
What I do know is that potatoes taste good
fixed most'any way. But my grandmother did
warn me not to ever eat green skinned potatoes
because that would be a bad thing. And if there
is one thing I learned early in life, it was that
my grandmother knew just about everything.
So, in keeping with my grandmother's wisdom,
I would advise never to eat a green skinned
potato.
But all the rest are up for grabs.
So, get cooking and eat potatoes.
Less rice, less wheat, less corn.
Eat taters, and join the in crowd before it's
too late.
After all, soon it may be the IYT the
Internal Year of Truffles. And that my friend, is
where I will have to draw the line.
For now, I'll settle for a helping of pomme de
terre frites with a side of ketchup.

Agree, disagree, don't care? Contact Ellen
via email at ellen@ alachuatoday.com Just
remember, if you don't want your mama to read
it, don't send it!

first three hours. Therefore a quick,
prepared response is imperative to help
recover the child quickly. CART is
comprised of state, county and local law
enforcement officers and detectives with
experience in investigating crimes against
children.' But since CART is used only
after a child is abducted, parents can do
several things to help keep their children
safe.
Recommendations include:
Don't display your child's name on
personal items like backpacks, cups,
clothing etc.
Encourage your child to use the buddy
system when playing outside.
Teach your child to use the telephone
and make sure they know their address and,
phone number.
Teach your child stranger danger.

Chattahoochee and Quincy


and begin paying lbr electricity, the added revenue
offsets the rising cost of fuels.
However, even it' rates go up, the city will still
have one of the cheapest electricity rates in the
state, New said.
"Right now, the city is among the lowest electric
utility providers in Florida," he said. "The city is in
the lower 25th percentile of all municipal electric
utilities, which is just remarkable given our size."
For about 16 years, the City of Alachua has been
receiving its power from Gainesville Regional
Utilities (GRU), but GRU decided to end the
contract this December, which has left city officials
scrambling for a new power source.
The city currently provides electricity for 22 sq.
miles and 3,369 customers, including 706
commercial customers.
A team was put together to find a new wholesale
energy provider for a five-year contract. The team
includes City Manager Clovis Watson Jr., Public
Works Director Mike New and representatives from.
WHH Enterprises, the city's wholesale power
consultant.
Two companies, Progress Energy and GRU,
responded to bid requests. Although the offers were


similar, Progress Energy edged GRU because of
minimal factors, said Bill H larrington, a spokesman
for WHH.
One of the most significant advantages Progress
Energy has over GRU is that it is less dependant on
fuels that have unstable costs, Harrington said.
Progress Energy gets 43-percent of its energy
from natural gas, while GRU gets 65-percent of its
energy from natural gas. The price of natural gas has
risen substantially the past few years, so Harrington
said GRU will likely be more expensive.
"Proposals that are less dependent on these
volatile fuels probably have a little edge," Harrington
said.
The estimated supply costs for GRU are $65
million and $63.7 million for Progress Energy,
giving Progress Energy a minimal advantage, he
said.
Another factor that gave Progress Energy an edge
was that the company offered to allow the city to use
its electrical substation.
The city's substation is nearing its capacity, so
Progress Energy's substation will allow the city to
avoid a multi-million dollar expansion, at least for a
few years, Public Works Director New said.
"I feel very comfortable that Progress Energy will

I admit that I was not the only one that influenced your

be a very good partner for the City,of Alachua," said
City Manager Watson. "Progress Energy has
demonstrated its commitment to become our long
term power provider."
Progress Energy has to report to the Florida
Public Service -Commission, while GRU does not.
This accountability makes it more difficult to adjust
fuel rates, which stabilizes the city's costs.
If a hurricane or other natural disaster strikes the
area, Progress Energy has 12 emergency operation
centers that can send response teams to restore
power, including stations in Levy County, Marion
County and Gilchrist County.
Progress Energy provides energy for cities such
as Williston, Winter Park, Chattahoochee and
Quincy.
The City of Alachua began providing electric
services in 1915. Prior to the 1980s, the city bought
energy from Florida Power Company, which is now
Progress Energy. In 1992, city officials signed a 15-
year exclusive contract with GRU.
In 1997 the city re-negotiated with GRU, which
reduced the city's electricity costs by $3,000 per
month.
Electricity usage in the city has increased by
about 7-percent since 2000. The city spent about $8
million on electricity in the 2006-2007 year,

young man who doesn't
want to go to college nor
sees the advantage. An
interesting situation since
Indiana Jones is an
archeology professor at a
university.
The action takes us to
Peru, and then to the
northern part of Brazil near
the Amazon river in search
of the Crystal Skull of
Akator.
The film reminds me of
previous Indiana Jones
exploits, and I found
myself remembering his
hat, his dislike of snakes,
and even the phrase
"Junior". The music is
identical and you truly feel
like you're watching an
Indiana Jones film, except
that it wasn't quite as
exciting, which may have


more to do with the facts
that 1 was a lot younger
when I saw the original
film. It has tons of action, a
great soundtrack, great
locations, and it's Indiana
Jones all the way.
The film is fairly family

profanities and some of the

scary for young children.
Outside of that I have no
reservation in
recommending the Indian

and spiritual guidance.
This week, Kees dedicates
his article to Paula Andrea
Roya Moreno, a child he
and Monet Monico of "The


Suite Life of Zach and
Cody" sponsor through
Compassion International.


"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.


John Robert had never thought of reading as a frontier. Then Mr.
Herman explained that a frontier can be niany tiings. He said it
could be a piece of land where only a few people live, or it can be
something like reading, when not many others are able to do so.
Going where others have not gone, Mr. Herman said, is being
on a frontier.
Finally after help from his father, John Robert was making good
mud. As the boy worked on the barn, the big black dog rested
nearby, mostly sleeping. When John Robert looked at the dog, he
wondered where it had come from. There was a good trail nearby
that was used by travelers coming through the territory. John
Robert decided the dog had wandered off the trail and was left
behind by its master.
But Mr. Herman said any good dog could catch up to its master
even if it got two or three days behind. John Robert's father
agreed that the appearance of the dog was a puzzle.
As the day passed, the boy and the dog became friends. When
they stood side by side, the dog's head came all the way up to
John Robert's shoulder. The big dog stood quietly when John
Robert petted it.
Mr. Herman asked John Robert what he was going to name the
dog. That was a question that had been on John Robert's mind
all day long. Just what would be a good name?



Things to Think About and Do
th A. John Robert is helping chink the barn. Using a dictionary,
learn the definition of the word "chink." As an art project,
make a little cabin or barn out of sticks and chink the sticks
together with mud. Have a display of cabins made by
members of your class.
B. Mr. Herman told his definition of the word "frontier."
What U.S. state is sometimes called "the last frontier?"
"' What television show calls outer space "the final. r- ii,. i '
j' What historical character has been called the "king of the
Swild frontier?"
S C. Look in your newspaper for things that would be considered
I a "new frontier."

teaching their children early about the importance of financial
responsibility.

Lesson from


Rahab-


"In the same way, was not even
Rahab the prostitute considered
righteous for what she did when she
gave lodging to the spies and sent them
off in a different direction?" (James
2:25)
The story of Rahab is
a wonderful illustration
of the salvation process
through Jesus Christ.
What caused God to view
her as righteous? Rahab
acted to protect the spies .
because she believed God
could save her.
She was convinced *' .
that the city of Jericho RpV. EON
was destined for TRAINA
destruction while many New Life Coi
in the city trusted in the Chapel, Gain
city walls to protect
them. She had heard of the mighty move
of God in other lands and believed that
Jehovah was now going to bring down
her city before the Israelites. People
today must come to terms with the truth
that "all have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God" (Rom. 3:23). We cannot
trust in ourselves. There will be no scale
to balance our good works against our
sins. One sin outweighs all the works of
righteousness that we could ever
perform (Rom. 6:23).
Rahab believed her future rested in
the hands of the "true God." She risked
her life to protect the spies because she
was seeking God to save her. She had no
standing on her own and therefore had to
seek the spies to be her intercessor
before God. We can acknowledge that
there is a God, but we too need an
intercessor to approach the Father on our
behalf (Rom. 8:34). Our salvation rests
solely on the work of Jesus. We cannot


Joshua 2

add even one-percent to the payment
Jesus made on our behalf (Eph. 2:8-9).
Rahab placed her request in the
hands of the spies, and they werit away
and left her in the city. All she had left
was her faith in their promise
to spare herself and her
family's life. Jesus, after rising
from the dead, ascended into
heaven where He now sits at
the right hand of the Father.
Jesus has sent us the Holy
SSpirit to mark us for salvation.
Rahab marked her room with a
red cloth, and then waited for
the fulfillment of the promise.
ARD R. Her hope was to be spared
from the wrath to come. Our
immunity hope is in the Lord's return,
iesville and to be found forgiven in
Him and spared the wrath of
God (Rom. 5:9; 1 Th. 5:9).
While she waited, she went out to her
family and told them the good news,
urging them to come to her room. What
a wonderful picture for us to draw from
as we await the Lord's return. We too
must be busy sharing the good news and
inviting people to come in, trusting we
will be spared the wrath to come (Acts
1:8).
When the redemption came, Rahab
was accepted into the nation as one of
their own. People today do not have to
wait until the day of the Lord's return for
acceptance. We become children of God,
His family, the moment we receive
Christ as our Savior, and we are marked
eternally -by His Holy Spirit. All has
been provided for us. The call to join the
family of God has been given and time is
growing short. May God, when the Day
of Judgment comes, find your heart right
with him through His Son (Titus 3:3-8).

LOCAL DEALERSHIP FORCED




TO LI UIDATE INVENTORY



SAV NGS 60%
Wade Raulerson Pontiac Buick GMC has been ordered by corporate headquarters TO ABSOLUTELY liquidate
inventory with consumer savings up to 60%! A recent floor plan audit indicates inventory will be cut by $3,734,000
this weekend. Even the hottest vehicles will be sold off at dramatic savings! Special provisions have been made
to expedite this spectacular savings event: Several national lenders will be staffed on site all weekend with
additional finance help by corporate headquarters, The Morgan Auto Group, of Tampa. $0 DOWN FINANCING
RATES and 0% FINANCING for Pontiacs, Buicks, GMCs. Cadillacs, Saturns, & Chevrolets. ALL SOLD WITH
ZERO money down! Hondas. Toyotas, Hyundais, trucks, vans, sport utility vehicles, all priced with up to 60%
Savings. Imagine driving home a vehicle that normally would cost $450 per month for only $299! It's possible,
when $3,743,000 worth of inventory must be liquidated. In many cases the dealership will incur severe losses
to achieve this reduction. Chiefland, Ocala, Lake City, Palatka, can you afford to leave as much as $200 on the
table? Vehicles sold as low as $1975. Over 30 types of vehicles that get in excess of 30 miles per gallon are
included in this event! Trade-ins in the $4,000 range will be recommended to maintain all pricing structures.

ALL CORPORATE DEALS MUST BE CONSUMATED BY 7:00 PM SATURDAY JUNE 7
