Funding woes put 1-75 improvements at risk


By CRAIG COX'
Today Reporter
ALACHUA The congested
Interstate 75 interchange in the city of
Alachua is not likely to see
improvements anytime soon because
of a lack of funding, said Debrah
Miller, Florida Department of


Transportation (FDOT) project
manager.
Since 2005, FDOT officials have
been working with the city, the county
and WACO Properties to study ways to
alleviate congestion.
But the plan for interchange
improvements has hit a snag.


"Keep in mind, there's no money
for this interchange," Miller said about
the crossroads of Interstate 75 and U.S.
Highway 441. "Unfortunately, there
are a lot of interchanges that are in
worse shape than this one."
However, City of Alachua officials
said they will continue to push for


funding, because the failing
interchange needs improvements.
"We think it's imperative that we
get this additional interchange in the
city," said City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr. "This is a very difficult
budget year for everyone, but we will
continue to rally our state legislature


and our representatives in [Washington
D.C.]"
The Alachua Interchange Study
was initiated to analyze traffic patterns
and the social, environmental and
cultural aspects of the project,

Cities turn up



heat on county



fire contract


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter


ALACHUA COUNTY -
Seven cities in Alachua County
are inching their way toward
what they believe would be fair
fire department contracts
through the Metropolitan Fire
Authority (MFA).
Alachua, High Springs,
Newberry, Hawthorne, Waldo,
LaCrosse and Micanopy have
joined forces to negotiate fire
department contracts with the
county.
The cities currently have
individual contracts with the


county, which has left some of
the cities crying foul.
"We've been treated poorly
in the past, and we see the MFA
as a way to negotiate a fair
deal," said Chad Shyrock,
Hawthorne city manager.
Although county officials
are working with the cities to
improve the role of the MFA,
Deputy County Manager
Richelle Sucara said the MFA
has one key flaw: the MFA
does not have authority to
enforce the contract.
"We need to have an

More land at corporate


park slated for retail


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHIUA Three 12,500
square-foot buildings are being
proposed for a small piece of
land along U.S. Highway 441
in Progress Corporate Park.
They mark the latest addition to
proposed retail development at
the park and along the highway.
The developer of the five-acre
parcel will be hosting a
neighborhood workshop on
June 25 to discuss with the
public plans for the site at the


corner of U.S. 441 and
Innovation Drive.
All of the buildings would be
spec buildings, meaning they
could be used for several
different types of businesses
according to Rory Causseaux,
the engineer designing the site.
Building pad sites which
include a parking lot and
preliminary infrastructure are
also part of the plans.
The commercial retail site
could see a restaurant, dry

Steven Davis farms 800 acres near LaCrosse and recently took over the R.G. Thomas Farms packing shed on U.S. 121 in the.heart of
town. He sells fresh-from-the-farm produce grown locally and ships much more to area grocers and nationwide buyers.


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
LACROSSE People looking for
locally grown food should look no further
than LaCrosse, which is home to one of
the largest vegetable distribution centers in
the area.
Steven Davis Farms, located on state
Route 121 about 16 miles north of
Gainesville, sells vegetables from about
20 local farmers.


' Hundreds of people visit the farm each
week, which sells everything from corn
and green beans to squash and cucumbers.
The company also sells about six types of
peas.
Most of the vegetables packed at the
distribution center are sent to other states
and Canada, but the company also supplies
companies such as Hitchcock's, Ward's
and Nettles Sausage.
Steven Davis, 35, said the grocery
stores are instrumental, in keeping his


business running.
"I can't say enough how much I
appreciate the grocery stores doing
business with the local man and buying
local produce," he said.
Davis is the third generation of his
family to work on farms. He and his father
own about 800 acres of farm land.
Last fall, Davis decided to lease the
packing station, then called R.G. Thomas

14th annual Yulee Railroad Days in Archer


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ARCHER Archer's 14th
annual Yulee Railroad Days
celebration on Saturday
brought alive the nostalgia
which surrounds everything

off Saturday morning with a
lengthy parade which included
dozens of horses and riders,
floats representing various
community organizations and
even an antique Ford Mustang
in honor of musician Bo
Diddley who died last week.
The longtime Archer resident

MFA.: MFA plan would double cost to county

individual entity that we can
talk to," Sucara said. "Right
now we go directly to the city if
we have an issue, but with the
MFA there is no individual that
has power or authority to act on
behalf of the city."
Sucara said the MFA
currently has no power over the
cities, so it is just adding one
more step for the county to go
through if an emergency arises.
"We deal with life-
threatening public safety
situations," Sucara said. "We
don't need to have to go through
a middle man if a problem
comes up. When you don't talk
directly to somebody, you lose
something in translation."


County officials have been
hesitant to sign on to MFA
negotiations, saying parts of the
MFA proposal are unfair and
non-feasible.
The county currently pays
about $70,0,000 for the fire
contracts, but under the
proposal, the cities will charge
the county double that, or about
$1.4 million.
The cities are also asking the
county to pay for fire truck
replacements and fire stations.
Another major problem
county officials have with the
proposal is that the cities want
the county to pay for fire
responses between the cities.
For instance, when a


transformer failed several
weeks ago and caused a grass
fire along U.S. 441 in front of
Food Lion in Alachua, Alachua
County Fire Rescue was busy,
so the LaCrosse and High
Springs fire departments
responded to the fire.
Under the new proposal, the
county would have to reimburse
High Springs and LaCrosse for
the response.
"I think it's a significant step
forward in cooperation,"
Shyrock said. "I don't know of
any other activity that has
required this level of
cooperation between the cities
and Alachua County. We're all
on the same page, and we all


have the same goal."
Sucara said county officials
will continue to work with the
cities and the MFA to resolve
any issues.
County officials and the
MFA meet on a weekly basis to
discuss .the proposal. On June
30, the MFA will meet with
county officials to discuss and
finalize the contract.
"The most important thing is
to make sure every county
resident and every city resident
receives uninterrupted fire
services," she said. "So it's
important we keep these
discussions open."

Miller said she

One of the

the other designs

to do nothing but enhance the
existing interchange, we will
accept any funding the state is
in the position to give," Watson
said.
The congested interchange
has caused some people to
question the rate of
development in the city, but
Watson said new developments
will pay for the increased
traffic.
"There are mechanisms in
place where a fair share of
projects will be funded by the
developments," he said. "We
are willing to look at creative
ways to address this issue, but
there is not money at this point,
so we are hoping the state and
federal governments will take
the lead and address the need
for an interchange."
Watson said a new
interchange is also important to
alleviate truck traffic going
through school zones and side
roads.
A new interchange at C.R.
2054 would allow traffic going
to and from the warehouses,
such as the Wal-Mart
distribution center and Dollar
General, to avoid U.S. 441. A
new interchange would also
reduce the traffic going through
smaller roads in other cities,
Watson said.
"This will not only help the
city of Alachua and Alachua
County, but it will help the
surrounding areas as well,"
Watson said. "There's a clear

American Red Cross urges renewed


preparedness for hurricane season


411,


Special to Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE There's no
guarantee that this hurricane
season will be as quiet for the
United States as the past two
seasons and America needs to be
ready. Fewer than expected U.S.
landfalls over the past two years
may have lulled some people into
a false sense of security, but we do
know that being prepared can save
lives and property during a
disaster. The American Red Cross
urges everyone to dust off their
disaster supplies kit and get better
prepared now for a variety of
disasters such as hurricanes and
the high winds, flooding and
tornadoes that may accompany
them.
"By taking three basic
preparedness actions you can get
'Red Cross Ready' for disasters and
other emergencies. Get a kit, make
a plan and be informed," said
Laura Mager, Executive Director
of the American Red Cross, North
Central Florida Chapter. "The Red
Cross is also here to help you get
prepared for specific disasters like
hurricanes. Even if you took action
to prepare last hurricane season, it's
important that you revisit and
update your communication plan
and check your disaster supplies
kit for expired items."

Make a Plan
Prepare a Personal Disaster
and Evacuation Plan. The
American Red Cross urges each
and every household to develop a
household disaster plan.
Meet with your family to
create a plan. Discuss the
information you have gathered and
why it is important to prepare for a
disaster.
Identify two meeting places
one right outside your home in
case of a sudden emergency, like a
fire, and one outside your
neighborhood in case you can't
return home.
Be sure to make advanced
preparations for your pets. Be
aware that pets may not be allowed
in shelters. Contact hotels, motels,
family members and animal
shelters to see if they would allow
pets in a disaster situation. Keep a
contact list of "pet friendly"
locations. If'you are asked to
evacuate, take your pets with you.
Choose an out-of-area
emergency contact person. During
or after a disaster, it's often easier to
call long distance, especially if
local phone lines are overloaded or
out of service. Family members
should call this person and tell
them where they are. Everyone
must know your emergency
contact person's phone number
and email address.
Tell your family about the
"Safe and Well" web site
accessible at all times via
www.redcross.org. The Safe and
Well web site is an Internet-based
tool that allows those directly
affected by a disaster to let their
loved ones know of their well-
being. People within a disaster
affected area are able to select and
post standard "safe and well"
messages. Concerned family
members who know the person's
phone ntunber (home, cell, or
work) or a complete home address
canrsearch for the messages posted
by those who self-register.
m Show and explain to each


family member how and when to
turn off the water and electricity at
the main switches. Turn gas off
only if instructed by local
authorities. Remember, if the gas is
shut off, only a professional can
turn it back on.
Plan your evacuation route.
Use local maps and identify
alternate evacuation routes from
home, work and/or school. Know
where you are going and how you
plan to get there before you leave
home.

Be Informed
Find out what types of
disasters are likely to occur in your
area and how to prepare for each.
Find out how local
authorities will contact you during
a disaster. Listen to local media
broadcasts or NOAA Weather
Radio for the latest storm
conditions and follow the advice of
local authorities.
Contact your local American
Red Cross chapter for details about
community disaster education
presentations that may be arranged
or are available in your workplace,
school or community organization.
m Get trained in CPR and first
aid so you will know how to
respond to emergencies in the
event that help is delayed.
If you are told to evacuate,
do so immediately. You may
choose to evacuate sooner than
alerted if you think you may need
additional time.

Know what to do if a Hurricane
Watch is issued
Listen to weather updates
from your battery-powered or
hand-cranked radio.
o Bring in outdoor objects such
as lawn furniture, hanging plants,
bicycles, toys and garden tools,
anchor objects that cannot be
brought inside.
a Close all windows and
doors. Cover windows with storm
shutters or pre-cut plywood.
If time permits, and you live
in an identified surge zone, elevate
furniture or move it to a higher
floor to protect it from flooding.
Fill your vehicle's gas tank.
Check your disaster supplies
kit to make sure items have not
expired.

Know what to do if a Hurricane
Warning is issued
Listen to the advice of local
officials, and leave if they tell you
to do so.
If in a manufactured home,
check tie-downs and evacuate as
told by local authorities.
Secure your home by
unplugging appliances and turning
off electricity and the main water
valve.
If you are not advised to
evacuate, stay inside, away from
windows, skylights and glass
doors.
Do NOT use open flames,
such as candles and kerosene
lamps, as a source of light.
If power is lost, turn off
appliances to reduce damage from
a power surge when electricity is
restored.

families can prepare for disasters

The American Red Cross has
helped people mobilize to help
their neighbors for 125 years. Last
year, victims of a record 72,883
disasters, most of them fires,
turned to the nearly 1 million
volunteers and 35,000 employees
of the Red Cross for help and
hope. Through more than 800
locally supported chapters, more
than 15 million people each year
gain the skills they need to prepare
for and respond to emergencies in
their homes, communities and
world.
The Red Cross helps
thousands of U.S. service
members separated from their
families by military duty stay
connected. As part of the
International Red Cross and Red
Crescent Movement, a global
network of more than 180 national
societies, the Red Cross helps
restore hope and dignity to the
world's most vulnerable people.
An average of 91 cents of every
dollar the Red Cross spends is
invested in humanitarian services
and programs. The Red Cross is
not a government agency; it relies
on donations of time and money to
do its work.

A different perspective on Father's Day


In honor of Father's Day, this column is dedicated
to all the great dads out there.
Mother's Day always creates a huge sensation that,
in terms of cards and gifts, is rivaled only by
Valentine's Day and Christmas.
If you forget your mom, well just hang it up. Times
just ain't gonna be good around your house.
But what about dear old Dad?
With over 64.3 million dads across the
nation, would it be fair or just to not
celebrate their day in like fashion?
Pops probably doesn't care much for
the hearts and flowers routine, although
today's dads are purported to be more .-
interested in relationships, caring, and
feelings. But that is most likely an r
individual perspective and preference. ;
Gifts for men are fairly standard, and
either he doesn't wear ties, or has enough *..
for an entire third world nation. Boxers
are boring, and oh, so expected.
Of course, there are always tools -
"he-man" like tools, and the bigger and Ellen Bo
the louder the better.
But really, how many socks, ties,
boxers, flashlights, drills, wallets and universal remote
controls does a guy need?
Isn't there something a dad could really put to good
use throughout the year and beyond?
I stumbled across the following insights into human
behavior sometime ago. And in my infinite wisdom, I
knew the time would come to share them. That time is
now.
For dads in particular and all men in general, what
follows will surely make your life more meaningful
and enjoyable, and possibly a bit more understandable
to you and those around you.
And a word to the wise for the ladies recognize
all, but admit nothing.
Once again, it's all depending upon perspective.
Consider names. If Joan, Jackie, Elizabeth and
Sandra go out for lunch, they will call each other Joan,


Jackie, Elizabeth and Sandra.
If Sam, Chris, John and Joe go out, they will
affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla,
Tater-Head and Scrappy.
And then there's eating out. When the bill arrives,
Sam, Chris, John and Joe will each throw in $20, even
though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have
anything smaller and none will actually admit they
want change back.
^., zWhen the girls get their bill, out come
." the pocket calculators.
When talking money, a man will pay
$2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item
that she doesn't need but it's on sale.
Moving along to the bathrooms, a
man has five items in his bathroom: a
toothbrush, shaving cream, razor, a bar of
soap, and a towel/from the Holiday Inn.
The average number of items in the
typical woman's bathroom is 337.
A man would not be able to identify
oukari most of these items.
And then of course, there are
arguments. As all wise people are aware,
a woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of
a new argument.
Which brings us to cats. Women love cats.
Men say they love cats, but when women aren't
looking, men kick cats.
And of course, married bliss is definitely all in
one's perspective. A woman marries a man expecting
he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't
change and she does.
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the
plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a
book, and get the mail.
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
In fact, men wake up as good-looking as they went
to bed.


Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
This may be because she is busy thinking about the
children: A woman knows all about her children. She
knows about dentist appointments and romances, best
friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and
dreams.
A man is vaguely aware of some short people living
in the house.
And finally, any married man should forget his
mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering
the same thing.
Hopefully, these little pearls of wisdom will bring
peace and joy to some dads and their families, not just
on Father's Day, but everyday.
Dads may be thought of as tough guys, but we
know most of them are just old softies. So on this
Father's Day, express your gratitude by giving the dad
in your life a hug and maybe even a thank you for
everything he's done for you.
If he doesn't faint, or have a confused look, and ask
what it is that you want, all the while tightening his
grip on his wallet, he will most likely appreciate your
words.
Once the realization hits that it's Father's Day, he'll
begin to wonder where his new boxers and ties are.
Just tell him that today's fathers are more interested
in relationships, caring, and feelings. And since you
know he is definitely a father of today, there is no need
for a pointless gift...or a card.
If he continues to look a bit confused, tell him you
bought him a really neat cat for Father's Day, but it ran
away.
The odds are, now he will be the grateful one.
After all, it's all in perspective.
Happy Father's Day, dads.

S 2007 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report


The City of Alachua is pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water
Quality Report This report is designed'to inform you about the quality
water and services we deliver to you every day. Our goal is to provide you
with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to
understand the continual efforts we make to improve the water treatment
process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the
quality of your water. This report shows our water quality testing results and
what they mean. If you have any questions or concems about this report or
your water utility, please contact the City's Public Services Director, Mike
New, at (386) 418-6140. We encourage our valued customers to be
informed about their water utility.

The City ofAlachua's water source is ground water drawn from the Floridan
Aquifer via wells. Our drinking water is disinfected with chlorine in
accordance with State disinfection regulation and good water treatment
practices. In addition, the City injects fluoride into our drinking water as an
aid to good dental hygiene. The City of Alachua is proud to note that our
drinking water has been judged to be the best tasting drinking water in North
Central Florida for the past two years.

The City ofAlachua routinely monitors or drinking water for contaminants
according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where
indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for
the period of January 1 to December 31, 2007., Data obtained before
January 1, 2007, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing
done in accordance with the laws, rules and regulations.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) has
performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and search of the data
sources indicated a low to moderate potential sources of contamination near
our wells. Potential sources of contamination identified include
underground petroleum storage tanks in the vicinity area of our water wells.
The assessment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment
and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

In the table located at the end of this report, you may find unfamiliar terms
and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:

Initial Distribution System Evaluation (IDSE): An important part of the
Stage 2 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR). The IDSE is a one-time
study conducted by water systems to identify distribution system locations
with high concentrations of trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids
(HAAs). Water systems use results from the IDSE, in conjunction with their
Stage 1 DBPR compliance monitoring data, to select compliance
monitoring locations for the Stage 2 DBPR. Our system has tested very low
for disinfection by-products under Stage 1.

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a
contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the
MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.

Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a
contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected
risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.

Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if
exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must
follow.

Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a
disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that
addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.

Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a
drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk


to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to
control microbial contaminants.

"ND": means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found
by laboratory analysis.

Parts per million (ppm) or milligrams per liter (mg/1): one part by
weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.

Parts per billion (ppb) or micrograms per liter (Jug/): one part by weight
of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.

Picocurie per liter (pCi/L): measure of the radioactivity in water.

Sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers,
lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over
the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up
substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may
come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural
livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be
naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial
or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or
farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources
such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile
organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and
petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban
stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the
result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes
regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water
provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which
must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water,
including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small
amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not
necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information
about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling
the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-
800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water
than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons
with, cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders,
some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These
people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care
providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of
infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are
available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-4264791).

The City of Alachua would like you to understand the efforts we make to
continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you
have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please
contact us.

Ask Your Dentist byDouglas, I

Xerostomia,

or dry mouth


Q: What is xerostomia?
A: Xerostomia, pronounced
zero-STO-me-uh, is the medical
term for a condition colloquially
called "dry mouth." The condition is
a result of the mouth not generating
enough saliva. It can have a number
ofharmful effects. Among them are:
*Tooth decay and periodontal,
or gum disease. Without the
cleansing benefit of saliva, food
particles and resultant bacteria will
stay in the mouth contributing to
decay and gum disease.
*Bad breath, also called
halitosis, resulting for the loss of the
antiseptic function of saliva.
*Dentures, particularly full


dentures, not being as stable as they
should be since. they depend on a
thin film of saliva to adhere properly.
mThe sense of taste being
altered or diminished.
mA general irritation-of the soft
tissue in the mouth, leading to
inflammation, pain and the
possibility of infection.
The condition is more common
in older patients. Increasing fluid
intake can help, as can chewing
sugar free gum. A number of over-
the-counter oral rinses and artificial
saliva products also are available.
The best thing to do, though, is to
talk with your dentist about ways to
address dry mouth.

A8 ALACHUA COUNTY TOI)AY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 2008

STEVEN DAlfV FARMS: Farming can be a risky passion


Farms.
The business was
dwindling, so the owner
decided to retire and lease the
land to Davis.
Since Davis took over the
farm, business has rebounded.
In fact, he said the workers are
having a hard time keeping up
with orders on certain
vegetables, including peas.
Davis employs about 30
people for the packing process,
but all of the employees are
seasonal, so the number varies.
"I'm used to working on the
fields and in the dirt," Davis
said, "so having secretaries and
all these people on the payroll
is all new to me."
Janet Foster, who visited
the farm as a child, stopped by
to pick up watermelons for
children at her church.
"The kids said they wanted
some fruit, so it's really nice to
have this farm right here to get
some fresh watermelon for
them," she said.
Foster said she noticed how


busy the packing station
seemed to be.
"I used to come here with
my parents, but I haven't been
back for a while," she said.
"This is just amazing, and it's
just great for the community."
Despite the business'
success, factors such as diesel
prices and weather are
constantly looming over the
company, Davis said.
"It's a tough business. I'll
tell you that," he said. "The
diesel prices and the drought
are just killing me."
Lewis Walker, who has
worked at the site for 30 years,
said hard work is the only thing
keeping the business afloat.
"We've had a lot of good
times here," he said, "but we've
had even more hard-working
times."
Walker said a passion for
farming is also essential for
success.
"If you don't love being a
farmer, you don't need to be in
the business," he said. "1 can't


overemphasize the need for
passion."
Farming is challenging,
especially for a small company,
but Davis said he sticks with it
because he loves the business
so much.
"It's in my blood," he said.
"There's nothing else I want to
do. I don't want to be a fireman,
and I don't want to be an
electrician. So I guess this is
what I'm supposed to be
doing."
But one of the hardest parts
of farming is not being paid a
fair amount for the crops and
dealing with the piles of food
that are not sold, Davis said.
"I've got piles of money out
right now, but I'm not getting
much in," he said. "People
think because farmers own a
lot of land, we have a lot of
money, but that's just not the
case."
Davis said he works with
thin margins, and his financial
situation worries him.
"This business is very, very


risky," he said. "We are going
into dry years, and it's hard to
succeed unless you are a big
corporation. We definitely earn
what we get in this business."
If the farm continues to
grow and make a profit, Davis
has several plans to expand the
operation into a more visitor-
friendly environment.
One of the biggest projects
he wants to begin is a farmers
market. Davis said he wants to
set up booths and tables for
local farmers to gather and sell
their crops directly to the
public.
Although farming is
sometimes challenging and
disheartening, Davis said he
thinks it is possible for local
farmers to survive among big
corporations.
"If you do quality, and you
do consistency in a southern
location such as this, I think the
small man can succeed at
farming," he said, "and that's
what I aim to do."

The program visits Donnell and Robert
Gwinn's family farm in McAlpin, Suwannee
County, and Jay Fraleigh's nursery near
Madison. Both farming operations won
Commissioner of Agriculture Charles Bronson's
Agricultural-Environmental Leadership Awards
in 2007.
The Gwinn brothers grew up on the family
fann. On their more than 1,100 acres they have
a small cow-calf operation, and grow peanuts,
iron clay peas, bahia grass seed, and hay. But
they are best known for the premium
watermelons they ship from their own

specific businesses have been

Causseaux said he, hopes to
submit site plans" for the


packinghouse and sell throughout the eastern
United States and Canada. They were among the
first farmers in the Suwannee basin to participate
in a program to demonstrate Best Management
Practices (BMPs) that protect the environment
and increase productivity.
Jay Fraleigh is the sixth generation on his
family's farm in Madison County. While the
family traditionally planted shade tobacco,
cotton and row crops, Fraleigh has taken the
operation in a new direction. In 1999, he and his
wife, Donna, opened Fraleigh Nursery. Jay also
created Gro-Eco, a system of growing that not
only cuts water use by 80-percent, but also
eliminates irrigation runoff and produces
healthier plants.
The Florida Department of Agriculture
produces the program for Florida Farm Bureau


as part of an outreach campaign to increase
public awareness of agriculture, the state's
second-largest industry. The campaign focuses
on the message, "Safe, Affordable and
Abundant: Food for Thought from Florida's
Farmers." "Farm Bureau Today" repeats at 4:30
a.m. on Thursday, June 26 and at 3:30 p.m. on
'Saturday, June 28.
The Florida Farm Bureau Federation is the
state's largest general-interest agricultural
association with about 140,000 member-
families statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an independent,
nonprofit agricultural organization. More

DVDs for the whole family


By KEES BOER
Todai Entertainment Writer
Hawaii Five-O, the
Fourth Season
One of my all time
favorite police drama
television series from the
60s and 70s is Hawaii Five-
O starring Jack Lord (Felix
Leiter in Dr. No) as Steve
McGarrett. Opening the
show is that classic intro of
the guys in the canoe in the
open sea accompanied by
the thundering sound of
drums. All 24 episodes of
the fourth season are
included in this DVD set.
I highly recommend
Hawaii Five-O, the Fourth
Season it's family friendly
and family safe and besides
that, it's fun and the whole


family can enjoy it.
Seventh Heaven, the Sixth
season
Ever since my interview
with Catherine Hicks, I've
enjoyed watching this
show. As any Seventh
Heaven fan knows,
Catherine plays Annie
Camden, the wife of Rev.
Eric Camden, (Stephen
Collins). Together with
their seven children, they
experience all of the drama
that a pastor's family can
experience.
It's a great DVD set.
Even though the box looks
small, it still contains six
full disks.

favorite older television
shows. The series stars
David Janssen as Dr.
Richard Kimble, a doctor
who was framed for killing
his wife, and ended up on
death row. All the while, he
knows that the real killer is
a one armed man. On the
way to death row, he
escapes and becomes a
fugitive, as the relentless
Lt. Philip Gerard tries to
find him. The show tells of
Kimble's adventures as a
fugitive, while at the same
time trying to find the one
armed man, who was
responsible for the killing
of his wife.
This 60s show is family
friendly and I have no
reservation recommending
it. The DVD set contains
the 16 episodes of this


television series.

Complete First Season of
Gunsmoke on DVD
From the mid-50s to the
mid-70s, one television
series endured for 20 years.
It was the Emmy Award
winning show Gunsmoke,
starring Jim Arness as U.S.
Marshall Matt Dillon.
This is one cowboy
show that not only
emphasizes good versus
evil, it also stresses
compassion. I can see why
the series lasted for 20
years it's really a great
family show.
The DVD set consists of
six DVDs that contain all
39 episodes of the first
season.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION TIUriRSDAY, JUNl; 12, 2008


God the Father of lights


One of the oldest jobs in the world is
fortune telling. In fact, Holy Scripture
mentions eight different forms of it, eg,
throwing sticks in the air and seeing how they
landed or better yet, reading the internal organs
of a sacrifice. There was also looking into
water and seeing secret images perhaps an
early formnn of a "crystal ball," and of course, the
favorite and still one of the most popular forms
today is astrology, i.e., observing the sun,
moon, and planets and their relation to each
other and the zodiac. This method of
divination was always condemned by the
prophets when God's people put their trust in it.
Isaiah rebuked the people in his day with


the scolding words,
"Stand now with
your enchantments
and the multitude
of your sorceries, in
which you have
labored from your
youth perhaps you
will be able to
profit, perhaps you
will prevail. You
are wearied in the
multitude of our
counsels; let now
the astrologers, the
stargazers and the
month ly
prognosticators
stand up and save
you from what

shall come upon you. Behold they shall be as
stubble; the fire shall bum them; they shall not
deliver themselves from the power of the
flame; it shall not be a coal to be warmed by,
nor a fire to sit before." (Isaiah 47:12-14)
Relying on fortune telling is an attempt to
dodge personal responsibility by transferring
the course of life into the hands of fate. People
try to gain the advantage by knowing the future
and hedging their bet with secret knowledge.
Holy Scripture, i e, St James 1:17, f.f and
St. John 16:5, f.f, tells us that the world is ever
changing, unstable, and it cannot fulfill a single
promise, with certainty. Those who put their
trust in what is seen today will be disappointed.
"Why?" Simply, the sticks tossed in the air, the
water placed in a bowl, the various phases of
the sun and moon, all are under the governing
hand of God. We can't look at anything created
and trust that it is capable to act, guide, or


overrule the events in our life'! To borrow a
Medieval expression, "the thing that has been
put into motion is by nature inferior to the one
that put it into motion."
In the Epistle of St. James, we are told that
"...every good gift and every perfect gift is
from above and cometh down from the Father
of lights with whom there is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning."
St. James used the language of astrology to
make the comparison stand out, clearly! He
uses the expression "Father of lights" knowing
that the reader will first imagine the heavenly
lights, planets and stars he drives the
comparison home by noting that unlike the sun
and moon that are constantly changing, God
the Father of Lights (the one who gives light
to the lights) does not change. He does not
cast an ever moving shadow because He does
not vary.
We must realize that we, like the
heavenly lights, are His creation; we are
called to recognize our role in life is not one
of ruling but one of being ruled. Humanity
has a most difficult time with the desire to
rule rather than to serve. We are told to pray
against this way of thinking.
For the created being to find peace, it
must be subject to the will of God, which
begins when our eyes are opened to the
goodness of God, who is perfect in holiness,
righteousness, and justice. For us to be able
to see this, we must receive the gift of sight,
which is a gift of God. The Gospel of St.
James illustrates this point-when Christ tells
the disciples that they will no longer see him,
he tells them that it is for their good. It is the
absence of his physical presence being
replaced by the Light of the Holy Spirit. This
light will (in the words of Christ) "guide them
into all truth, he will show them things to
come, he will glorify Christ and show them the
things of the Ascended Christ at the right hand
of the Father." It is undoubtedly a gift of
vision, supernatural revelation, from God
Himself
The Father of Light is the giver of all good
gifts, and our response to this gift of light is the
simple act of submission-the simple duty of
resigning our unruly will to the will of God. In
the Light of His Holy Spirit, may our eyes be
open to behold His unchanging goodness and
submit ourselves to Him, finding peace, and
true joy.

Bake sale held to help


end childhood hunger


Special to Alachua County Today
ALACHUA CPAmerica in
Progress Park in Alachua held a
Great American Bake Sale to
help end childhood hunger in
the United States. There are
12.6 hungry children in our
country which equates to 1 in
6 with the greatest need
occurring during the summer
months and after school.
Children who experience
hunger are not able to grow as
they should; they are
underweight, neurologically
and developmentally delayed
and impaired, are sick more
often and have lowered
academic achievement. Grants
from Share Our Strength's
Great American Bake Sale
helped to establish an
additional 926 new sites where
children can get meals.
Bake Sale proceeds are also
donated to high-need areas and
Share Our Strength's Operation
Frontline, a chef-led nutrition
education program for low-
income children and their
families. Through hands-on
instruction, adults, teens and
children lean how to prepare
healthy, tasty, low-cost meals.
The Great American Bake
Sale was set up so anyone at
any level could help this charity
by holding a bake sale big or
small, from adult to child.
They offer graphics and


instructions in how to make the
bake sale successful and easy to '
do.
The CPAmerica committee-
set a goal of $1000 for the bake
sale, and is currently at-
$1050.96 and have one more
pot of money coming in to add
to the total. The committee
held lunches every Wednesday
during the month of May and
then held the bake sale in two
separate locations on June 4.
The organization has met more
than half their goal by having
'these home-made lunches and
charging $5 for the employees
to share in the lunches. The
total was increased by $120
through a bidding war on Wes
Marstens' Rum Cake he ended
up making five of them to
satisfy the demand. The three
pecan pies that were baked also
commanded premium prices.
The bakers both men and
women of CPAmerica ,were
joined by two bakers from
Oxthera in Progress Park.
Offered at the bake sale were
some wonderful cookies, pies,
cakes, cupcakes, scones, and
tarts.
"CPAmerica is looking
forward to having another bake
sale next year and exceeding
the amount we raised this year,"
said Lyn White, bake sale
coordinator.
