NEWBERRY As the population in
Florida continues to rise, traffic congestion
is becoming more and more of a frustration
for drivers and those governmental entities
that must deal with that frustration and a
shortage of funding.




Lowe's

Proposed store
reduced by 16,600
square feet


By BRYAN BOUKARI

ALACHUA Alachua
commissioners unanimously
approved a variance on
Monday night allowing
Lowe's Homes Centers, Inc.
to reduce the number of
required parking spaces for
store the company proposes to
build near Food Lion along
U.S. Highway 441.
Ormond Beach
engineering consultant Roger
Strcula of Upham, Inc.
presented o the request to
commissioners noting that the
reduction in parking spaces
was proportionate to the
reduction in the store's floor
space. He'said the reason for
-the reduction was that a
different store prototype was
being used for the design.
The home improvement
giant is slated to construct a
125,602 square-foot store
with a 28,839 square-foot
garden center. That's about,
16,600 square-feet than.
originally proposed. The
required parking number of
spaces was dropped from 460
to 419.
The project also received
final site plan approval and a
special exception for stores

Just as drivers must sit and wait for their
turn to get through traffic lights and
stopped vehicles, municipalities and
counties must wait for their turn to receive
road funding to alleviate traffic concerns
and make way for businesses to locate
along those roadways.
And the City of Newberry has learned
this lesson the hard way. ,


Catch-22'


State Route 26, known to many as
Newberry Road, is the main connector
through the city of about 3,900 residents.
But because of the high rate of growth to
the west of the city, the road has exceeded
its capacity in a one-mile stretch from the
intersection of S.R. 26 and S.R. 27 west to
S.R. 337.

Srbeque sauce


Carolyn and George Mells of Archer are marketing their signature barbeque sauce locally at
Hitchcock's Markets and to national buyers.

Today Reporter
ARCHER As you stroll through the aisles
of local grocery stores, you may not notice this
barbeque sauce among the hundreds of
condiments.
But Mells' Delicious barbeque sauce, which
was created by an Archer couple, may be in a
league of its own.
George Mells, 65, and his wife Carolyn sell


the sauce through their company, Mells'
Delicious Food Processing and Packaging,
LLC.
The company sold more than 800 bottles of
the sauce on its first day on the market, which
was May 22.
Several stores currently sell the sauce,
including Hitchcock's, Ward's, West Coast
Seafood and other small businesses, Mells said.

arrested for child


pornography


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA An Alachua
resident was arrested Tuesday
in connection with child
pornography distribution.
Eduardo Villar was arrested
at about 10 a.m. at his 14114
NW 142nd Place apartment,
which is located less than half a
mile from Alachua's recreation
center.
Officers found videos and
images of children possibly as
young as nine years old on his
computer and other digital
media devices, according to an
Alachua County Sheriffs
Office (ACSO) press release.
Police seized his hard drive
on April 17 after ACSO
detectives, working with the
Internet Crimes Against
Children Task Force,
developed information
regarding the distribution of
child pornography, according


Villar


to the press release.
Detectives performed
forensic examinations of the
items seized during the
warrant, and they found
multiple images and videos of
children having sex with each
other and with adults,
according to'the press release.
Villar is being charged with
one count of distribution of

Alachua wins



concrete plant suit


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
GAINESVILLE A judge
dismissed an appeal by Trinity
Materials, LLC which sought
to overturn a Nov. 5, 2007
decision by City of Alachua
commissioners denying a
concrete batch plant proposed
by the company.
The case was filed on Dec.
21, 2007 after commissioners
determined that the proposed
concrete batch plant to be
located at the Hipp
Construction property along
U.S. 441 was not compatible
with surrounding residential
neighborhoods.
In the suit, Attorney Patrice
Boyes claims that her client,


Trinity Materials, was treated
unfairly and subjected to a
higher standard of review than
allowed for under the special
exception process.
"The burden on the
applicant is much lighter for a
Special, Exception than for a
use variance...," Boyes wrote
in the lawsuit.
Trinity Materials met its
burden of proof she said.
In a strange twist, Boyes is
apparently partially right in
claiming that Trinity Materials
met its burden.
Eighth Judicial Circuit
Court Judge Frederick D.
Smith issued the ruling on

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2008 A3


Elderly High Springs man


victim of Internet scam


Special to Alachua Count' Todayw
HIGH SPRINGS A 72-
year-old High Springs man
received an unsolicited email
from a sender claiming to offer
a part time job where he could
earn money from his own
home. The email sender used
the name and address of James
Walter, the CEO of Platinum
Exports Company, a London
based company. According to
the email, Walter claimed that
the prospective job applicant
could earn between $2,000 and
$8,000 a month using the
applicant's home computer.
According to the email, the
applicant would receive funds
via the mail and would be
required to deposit them into
his personal account, keep ten
percent of the check as his
processing fee, and send the
remainder of the funds via
Western Union to London.
The victim received checks
and deposited them into his
account and sent the funds,
minus his 10-percent
processing fee to London.
After processing several checks
in excess of $10,000, the
victim's banking institution
determined that all of the
checks were counterfeit.
Officers warn citizens to be
cautious of scams and to follow
the listed Crime Prevention
Tips:
Do business with
those you know and trust. Be
sure you know the business or
person that you are doing
business with and where they
are physically located.
Understand the offer.
Look carefully at the
information about the products
or services being offered and
ask for more information. A
legitimate business will be glad
to offer more information on
products and services.
Check out the
company or individual's track
record. Check with the Better


Business Bureau for complaint
records and ask for an opinion
on that business. Remember,
the lack of a complaint record
is no guarantee of legitimacy.
Never give your bank
account numbers, credit card
numbers, or other personal
information to anyone you
don't know or haven't checked
out. Don't provide unnecessary
information to make a
purchase. If you have to choose
between purchasing something
with a credit card or cash, use
the credit card. You can always
dispute fraudulent credit card
charges, but you can't get cash
back.
Take your time and
ask for references.
Don't judge reliability
by how nice or flashy a website
may seem.
Know that people on
the Internet may not'always be
what they seem. Someone that
is sharing tips about a
moneymaking scheme or a
great bargain on a chat room oi
bulletin board may have the
motive to make money (Your
hard earned money!).
Know that con artists
often use unsolicited e-mails.
Be sure to report all unsolicited
e-mails or "spamming" to your
Internet provider.
Don't download any
programs from websites that
you are not familiar with. You
could accidentally download a
virus that wipes out or hijacks
your computer files.
If it appears too good
to be true, it probably is. Trust
your instincts!
No matter- what has
been promised, never use your
own money to make money for
someone else.
For more information on
internet scams, contact the
High Springs Police
Department at 386-454-1415.

No timeline on other businesses in plaza


Wehbe said he has received a
tremendous response from area
residents about the store.
"I have never seen so much
feedback and positive vibe about a
location," he said. "I'm very, very
impressed with the response I've
received. I mean, 1 get about 20 or
30 e-mails about the store
everyday."
Wehbe said he wants to work as
tightly with Alachua as he does with
other cities, including Gainesville.
He recently began attaching
sketches of the Haile Plantation


rapist to all of the pizza boxes, and
he said if anything happened in
Alachua he would try to assist the
community as well.
"I hope nothing like this ever
happens again," he said, "but I'll
definitely try to help the community
out in every way I can."
Moe's Southwest Grill and Fine
Wine and Spirits have also signed
leases in the plaza beside Domino's,
but it is unknown at this time when
.those businesses will open, said
Anne Metz, who is developing the
plaza.

LOWE'S:
Continued from page Al

Lowe's expected to


employ 120 workers


over 80,000 square feet from
Alachua's Planning and Zoning
Board on Tuesday night.
The company is now
awaiting a 30-day appeal
period in which someone could
challenge the Planning and
Zoning Board's approval.
Lowe's would make final
purchase of the property if no
challenges are submitted
according to Strcula. The
typical development time on a
store is less than eight months
he said.
The company was required
to seek a special exception
because the floor space of the
proposed Lowe's would exceed
80,000 square feet. As part of
the process, a market impact
study was submitted as well.
The now roughly 155,000
square-foot proposed Lowe's
would .be built on a 23-acre
parcel of land along U.S.
Highway 441, just west of the
Food Lion plaza.
The store would be
landscaped with trees toibuffer
recently built homes in the
nearby Baywood subdivision.
Landscaped islands within
the parking lot would be
oversized as required by city
ordinance he said. An outside
intercom system typically used
at Lowe's stores was also
removed from the drawing
board, Strcula said, noting that
City officials feared it would
break noise ordinance
guidelines.
Lowe's stores are generally
open from 6 a.m. until 9 or 10
p.m. Trucks would not unload


merchandise outside of
business hours Strcula noted.
Storage of fertilizers, and
other chemicals would be kept
under cover to prevent runoff
into an onsite retention basin
company officials said. Runoff
from the parking lot, however,
would be directed to an
engineered retention basin
according to Strcula.
Still, he added that testing
of the site shows that runoff
which would flow into the
retention basin would not
impact nearby Mill Creek. The
Suwannee River Water
Management District
(SRWMD) oversees permitting '
of retention basins to ensure
that they protect the
environment.
Some 120 people are
* employed in a typical Lowe's
and company representatives
noted that one of the
Gainesville stores grosses
about $52 million in sales
annually. They expect an
Alachua location to perform
similarly to others and a
workforce that includes about
70-percent of the employees to
be fulltime with the remaining
30-percent being part-time
employees.
While plans for Lowe's
have not been finalized, Strcula
and other company
representatives speculated that
an Alachua location would be
open in early 2009. The
average build time is about 180
days they said.

Tooth fairy is now powered


by Novamin


Special to Alachna County Today
ALACHUA NovaMin Technology, Inc., a
Florida based firm, is providing toothpaste to support
the Alachua County Organization for Rural Needs
(ACORN), Tooth Fairy Outreach Program. This
program served 5,000 children in 2007 by visiting
elementary schools, Head Start programs, day care
centers and health fairs to provide early oral hygiene
education.
"At NovaMin we want to improve the world's
oral health, but we want to go the extra mile in our
own backyard. This is a great way to help out this
really innovative local program" stated Randy Scott,
CEO of NovaMin Technology, Inc.
Creating good oral hygiene habits at an early age
is essential to the healthy development of a child's
teeth and gums. Oravive is a non-fluoride paste that
contains Calcium and Phosphorus minerals
(NovaMin) to remineralize the tooth surface for
protection.
The key to motivating children is to make the
lesson fun. "Our goal is to educate and entertain the
children we visit. We try to capture the children by
providing engaging activities such as the toothbrush
dance and dental puppet show. Thanks to donations
and supporters like you, our program continues to
grow!" stated Tooth Fairy Heather Fowler in a recent
interview.
The ACORN Clinic, located in Brooker, Florida,
is a nationally recognized program that provides
low-cost dental, medical and social services to low
income and underinsured residents in North Central
Florida.
NovaMin addresses the rapidly growing, unmet
oral care needs. It does this by amplifying the natural
biological defenses and repair mechanisms of the
oral environment resulting in teeth and gums that
look healthier, feel healthier and are healthier.
NovaMin reverses the negative effects that

TRINITY:
Continued from page A 1
City officials feared plant would adversely

impact adjacent neighborhoods


Tuesday, saying the City was in error in claiming
Trinity Materials had not met its initial burden of
proving the project complied with published
regulations. The judge said he believed that
initial burden was indeed met.
Judge Smith ultimately dismissed the. appeal by
Trinity because the city met its burden in
rebutting a noise impact study provided by the
company.
The city enlisted the services of sound expert Rob
Lilkendey who raised doubts about the accuracy
of the noise impact study produced by Trinity'
Materials.
"However, assuming that Trinity did meet its
initial burden, the record contains competent and
substantial evidence that supports the City's
position that the proposed use is, in fact, not
compliant with the regulations, and adverse to the
public interest," Smith wrote in his order.
The five-hour hearing on Nov. 5 included
questioning and review, but Alachua


commissioners ultimately decided the concrete
plant would not be approved. The unanimous
vote of denial followed an extended contentious
debate between city representatives and
representatives for Trinity Materials, LLC, which
proposed the concrete batch plant.
Commissioners ultimately denied the special
exception request on the basis that it was not
compatible with surrounding development,
concerns over noise and because it was
inconsistent with the city's, 2005 Land
Development Regulations.
Then Alachua Mayor Gib Coerper said in the
hearing, "I feel like the applicants have not met
the burden of proof that they will not adversely
affect the neighborhoods."
Then Commissioner Jean Calderwood agreed
with him saying, "I believe [the concrete batch
plant] would impact living conditions in the
neighborhoods directly and indirectly."

Let's talk ...can you hear me now?


We're hooked. And there's nothing we can do about
it.
Cell phones are as common today as "transistor
radios and a pack of Marlboros were to earlier
generations. They have become as pervasive as kudzu
vines in the south. It's reported that in some countries
there are more cell phones than there are people.
And, thanks to cell phones, we have
another lingo to add to our ever increasing
vocabulary. Consider that Bluetooth,
CDMA, Cell, Coverage Area, ESN,
Handoff, Home Service Area, Local N
Number Portability, No Service Indicator, \.
Roaming, and the ever dreaded Dropped "
Call are all attributes of the cellular
industry. Not to mention text message
lingo, that is evolving from online chats,
such as TTYL (Talk to you later), P911
(Parents are in the room), and OMG (Oh
my God), and an ever growing number of
others.
Today more than 200 million Ellen BO
Americans use cell phones. Consider that
as recently as the late 1980s there were fewer than one
million cell phones in use.
Just 20 years ago cell phones were the size of
bricks. Remember those guys? Bricks on the hips.
You can still see them in movies. What a hoot!
Nothing dates a film like seeing the protagonist, a cool
guy no doubt, whip out his 5-pound cellular Motorola
brick to make that lifesaving call that spares the world
from total and absolute destruction. Even James Bond
would look like a Dudley Do-Right with one of those
clunkers.
Now we have phones that fit into the smallest of our
pockets, take pictures, and browse the Internet for less
than the cost of a home phone. Wireless technology is


phenomenal. But most folks don't care what makes
their cell phone function they just want it to work.
They want to make and accept calls, download
ringtones, take pictures, handle texting, connect with
the Internet, take a beating, look cool and ...and keep
on ticking.
Nearly 75-percent of U.S. households have at least
one cell phone, with many having three to
-'- five. And almost 50-percent of teens
".: between 13 and 16 can boast ownership.
Cell phones are this generation's
technological addiction.
It's the cell phone we lovingly bid
good night as we place it on our
nightstand to charge before we go to bed,
and greet first thing in the morning and
check for as we're walking out the door.
Once you have one, you wouldn't
consider going anywhere without it. And
the panic that ensues if you leave home
without it, or heaven forbid, suspect
ukari you've lost it can be gut wrenching.
I've seen grown men frantically search
for their cell phone, horror in their eyes, as they rush
back into restaurants, flinging aside young and old to
search for what unsuspecting witnesses would assume
to be a lost Rolex or at a minimum the code to a secret
Swiss bank account.
But this isn't to say that women don't appreciate a
sleek little number as well. Shiny, slim and offering the
world at the tap of a button. Who today zips by the
grocery store without pulling out their cell phone and
calling home to take that last minute inventory of what's
for dinner and does the dog have food?
In terms of pecking order, the newest and greatest
number of features combined in the smallest device is
what really counts. Just about everything doable from


a PC, can also be done from a cell phone. Want to be
King of the Hill cellphone wise better have Bluetooth
technology.. .whatever that is. What a blow to discover
that your friend's cell phone has more features than
yours. And only last month yours was the latest and
greatest! What's a techno-freak to do? Join Cell Phone
of the Month Club?
One good thing about cell phones is it that now we
generally know who is calling. Some clever souls don't
even have to check the incoming number. Nope.
They've assigned special ring tones to certain
individuals. Using a sports analogy which men will
appreciate it's like the difference between a
touchdown and a fumble, depending if the recipient
wants to speak with the caller or not.
But despite all the high-tech features packed into
that credit card sized gizmo, there doesn't seem to be
any way around dead zones those troubling areas
where wireless signals are nonexistent. Who hasn't
traveled the Bermuda Triangle of dead zones on the
Interstate between Gainesville and Alachua and sure
enough, staring you in the face is the "call lost" "press
resend" message, but not before you play the "Can you
hear me now?" game the cell version of "telephone
tag."
And speaking of dead zones and dropped calls, let's
talk later. I'm about one mile from the dreaded
"Triangle" and I've got to check my emails.
TTYL!

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

Road money hard to come by as municipalities vie for funding


For people commuting from cities
such as Trenton to work in Gainesville,
Newberry is directly in their path. The
city gets all of the traffic, but none of
the economic benefits, said Newberry
City Manger Keith Ashby.
S.R. 26 was designed to have about
11,000 trips per day, but the road
currently has about 16,000 trips per
day. About 9,000 of those trips are
from Trenton and other cities near the
Alachua County border, said Newberry
Mayor John Glanzer.

New developments must pay
proportionate share
Because the road cannot handle
additional traffic, any new
developments in Newberry that are
likely to add traffic between 4:30 p.m.
and 6 p.m. are required to pay a
proportionate share amounting to
$9,400 per trip.
The proportionate share ordinance
was established so new businesses
would pay for their impact on the area,
but the ordinance has put an "economic
noose" around the necks of city
officials, Ashby said.
Because the proportionate share
rate is so high, Newberry has been
unable to attract new businesses;.
"It is economic murder," Ashby
said in an e-mail. "We are unable to
attract anyone."
McDonald's considered moving
into the city until they were informed
they would have to pay $300,000 in
proportionate shares to even be
considered for a permit, Ashby said.


Reportedly, McDonald's had been
looking to build an out parcel in the
Hitchcock's plaza or in the vicinity of
the round building located at Dr.
Karelas Drive and S.R. 26.
Ashby said McDonald's refused to
pay the proportionate share because
they can build in Alachua or High
Springs, both of which are eight miles
away and have roads that would not
require proportionate share funding.
"Our viewpoint is it's a regional
traffic issue, and it's somewhat unfair
that because of geography we happen
to be in the path of all of these cities,
and Newberry has to pay this
proportionate share," Glanzer said.
One of the main problems
Newberry faces with S.R. 26 is that it
is part of the Strategic Intermodal
Transportation System (SIS), said
Karen Taulbee, a specialist with the
Florida Department of Transportation
(FDOT) in District 2. I
The SIS was designed to move
people, goods and services as
efficiently as possible. Roads that are
part of the SIS have more restrictive
laws, because the roads connect places
such as ports, tourist attractions and
airports, and the roads are meant to
move cars with little interruption,
Taulbee said.
SIS roads are not meant to have
town centers built around them, but
Newberry's center is located on S.R.
26. Therefore, it is harder for the city to
get access permits and leeway to add
traffic and businesses to the road, she
said.'


The city has tried to reduce traffic
through the main drag by proposing a
bypass around the city, but funding has
been hard to come by, Ashby said.

Lack of state/federal funding
adds to dilemma
The proposed bypass will cost at
minimum $45 million, but the DOT is
proposing two bridges
over the CSX railroad
and S.R. 27, which will "The F

bypass on their five year NO MOI
budget," Ashby said in though it
an e-mail. They claim promised
'NO MONEY' even years "
though it has been
promised for over 10
years." N
However, FDOT
officials said they did
not promise any money
for a bypass, because other projects are
just as deserving of the funds.
"We told [Newberry] from day one
that there was funding to study the
bypass option, but not any phase after
that," said Debrah Miller, FDOT
project manager.
Miller said she understands
Newberry needs the funding, but the
city is not alone.
"If you're familiar with Florida at
all, places like Gainesville,
Jacksonville and Gilchrist County

really need this money too," she said.
"Not that Newberry isn't worthy of this
money, but every city and every
municipality is in the same situation."
Newberry has several options to
acquire funding for the project,
including lobbying the legislature and
combining techniques, Miller said.
And City Manager Keith Ashby has
done just that. He sent
an e-mail to nearly 50

ypass on and Representative
ve year Debbie Boyd.
Although the city
they claim has not received any
EY' even concrete support,
has been Mayor Glanzer said
for over 10 they have received
positive responses.
"We got a lot of
positive responses, but
eith Ashby they kind of dumped it
ewberry City back into our laps and
Manager told us to go back to
them when we have
some sort of resolution in mind," he
said.
Congressman Cliff Stearns told the
city he will consider creating a federal
transportation earmark for the bypass
funds, but even if the earmark gets past
Congress, it could be vetoed by the
president. It will likely only cover one-
third of the cost of the bypass, Glanzer
said.

Bypass gets mixed reaction
Some of the downtown business


owners are afraid a bypass will take
away traffic, which will also take away
potential customers.
However, most of the downtown
businesses are destinations and are not
dependent on automobile traffic,
Glanzer said.
City officials and FDOT officials
plan to discourage businesses from
locating on the bypass, so the road will
be used primarily for traffic passing
through the city.
The bypass- will only have about
two access points, so it will be difficult
for businesses to get the traffic they
need to stay open, Glanzer said.
By taking traffic off of S.R. 26,
Newberry officials hope to create a
more walkable downtown area, similar
to the city of Alachua, Glanzer said.
Glanzer said that creating a
walkable business district will attract
more local customers who will put
money into the economy, rather .than
the current traffic that passes through
without stopping.
Until Newberry can find funding
for the bypass, the city will have to
become creative to attract businesses to
other areas of the town, said Debrah
Miller, FDOT project manager.
"They've got a lot of great ideas,"
she said. "Unfortunately, funds are
tight everywhere. For businesses to
come in, Newberry is going to have to
come up with very creative solutions,
and I certainly don't have all the
answers."

Hope for TMJ

syndrome sufferers


Q: What sort of treatment is
available for TMJ problems?
A: Problems with the
temporomandibular joint, which is
what TMJ stands for, can become
quite serious, resulting in weight loss,
weakness, and pain that radiates
throughout the body. An estimated 10
million Americans suffer with some
sort of TMJ pain, according to the
National Institute of Dental and
Craniofacial Research. Treatment
depends on the severity of the
condition and on the extent of any
damage. For instance, aTMJ problem
thafs been brought on by ligament or
disc damage may require surgery.


Treatment can range from
acupuncture to oral surgery, and
include chiropractic, physical therapy,
prescription drugs, like muscle
relaxants, and flushing the joint with a
saline solution. A specially designed
mouthpiece can create a perfect bite
andtake stress offthejawtoletitheal.
Some great tips to help TMJ
syndrome sufferers are to stay away
from gum and any hard, chewy,
crunchy or tough food. including
apples, carrots and bagels.
Talk with your dentist about any
facial pain you experience. Your
dentist can outline a course of
treatment if you suffer from TMJ
problems.

and my wife and I would like to
thank Mr. Alan Hitchcock for
the opportunity to bring our
item into his stores," Mells said.
"Mr. Hitchcock was our first
commercial account in the state
of Florida, and we really
appreciate his support."
People in New York and
Orlando have also purchased
the sauce, he said.
The tomato-based
condiment comes in two
flavors: hot and mild. However,
the Mells plan to introduce a
new flavor within 30 days to 60
days.
The new flavor will be
geared toward older people,
children, and people who
cannot handle abrasive spices,
George Mells said.
Although the sauce has
created waves in the
community, it has humble
beginnings.
George's mother created the
basic recipe with products she
found in her kitchen. But when
she died, George was the only
one of her 10 children to carry


lells to open plant in Archer


on the recipe, he said.
Over the years, Mells added
spices and other ingredients
until he perfected the sauce. He
gave to friends and family, and
eventually word got out about
the condiment.
Sam Scott, a doctor who
went to the University of
Florida, held a symposium in
January, and he insisted the
Mells bring their sauce to the
event.
Scott's wife, Marcia, said
she really appreciates the Mells'
hard work and determination.
"One of the main attributes
of the Mells that I truly like is
that the Mells are not asking for
a handout," she said. They will
use the little they have and
make it into a big success."
The Mells decided to do a
survey about the sauce's
marketability and taste, and it
received very good results
across the board, Mells said.
Because the sauce received
such positive reviews, the Mells
decided to mass produce the
product. The only problem was


they had no facilities to make
the sauce.
So the Mells turned to
International Packaging of
Authentic Cuisines (IPAC) in
Winter Springs.
The company signed a
confidentiality agreement to
keep the ingredients secret, and
IPAC can only
package the sauce
under the direction "Whe

plans to bake sweet
potato pies, peach
pies and apple pies.
Carolyn will be in
charge of the pies,
while George, who retired from
the Nassau County, NY, police
department about 24 years ago,
will continue to devote his time


to selling and improving his
barbeque sauce.
The barbeque sauce has
been such a success that the
couple plans to build their own
packaging plant in Archer.
The plant will bottle the
sauce on one side of it and bake
pies on the other,

The couple
bought about
25 acres next to
their Archer
office, which is
located at 8710
SW 170th
Street. The
couple does not
know when
they will build
the plant.
Although
the business
has been costly
to develop, the
Mells believe
the product is


worth the risk.
And the risk the Mells took
has paid off in a big way,
Marcia Scott said.
"Here is an ordinary person
with ordinary dreams getting
out there and succeeding," Scott


said. "When we got the e-mail
saying he had gotten into the
stores, we were all standing
around screaming because we
were so excited for him."
George Mells is also
working on other inventions,
including a product that will
prevent water from dripping on
the floor during and after
showers.
His time spent with the
police department helped Mells
grow accustomed to working
with people, so marketing his
business has come easier for
him.
The Mells have sold their
products at several local venues,
including Yulee Days and the
Waldo Farmer's and Flea
Market.
"I love people, and I like
making people happy," Mells
said. "I love dealing with
people, and to be able to do
something like this is very
rewarding to me. I feel I have
contributed something to
society that will be long-
lasting."

celebrity the writers had in
mind when they named her
"London." She enjoys
being rich, while at the
same time has no regard or


any form of understanding

Cole Sprouse plays
Cody Martin, the brighter
twin. He is continually
picking up after his
brother, Zack. He has great
aspirations, including
graduating with a high GPA

College, such as MIT.
Together with his brother,
they unofficially run the
hotel, sometimes to a total
mess.
Dylan Sprouse plays
Zack Martin, the one who
is gifted with his hands.
Even though he is short, he
is a great basketball .player
and excels in his woodshop
class. He tends to abuse his
brother, Cody, at times,
though when things get
rough he does stick up for
his sibling.
Phil Lewis is hotel


manager Mr. Mosely, who
is greatly frustrated by both
boys as they continue
messing up his operation.

SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua County Today
are partnering to bring you "A Frontier Legend." The purpose of
this campaign is to get young people reading. Alachua County
Today will publish an eight-chapter serialized short story, "A
Frontier Legend" as part of our Newspapers in Education
program. The newspapers will be sent home with the students
after the project for the week is completed so that parents can
share the stories with their children.


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

Christmas Day was cold and wet. Before the Herman family finished
breakfast, a light snow began to fall. But the little cabin was warm
and cheerful. John Robert gave his gifts to his parents and made
them very proud of how well he had built them.
Mrs. Herman gave her husband and John Robert each a pair of
fur-lined mittens. She also gave them warm socks.
Mr. Herman gave his wife some pretty new cloth so she could
make a dress. Then he said there was a present for John Robert in
the barn. Pulling on his new mittens and his old coat, John Robert
went outside with his father. Hercules followed them into the barn.
John Robert could see nothing that looked like a Christmas present.
Mr. Herman took a big wooden fork and dug into a stack of hay.
Soon, he reached into the hay and pulled out the present. John
Robert's mouth dropped open when he saw the sled.
Mr. Herman said the sled would be perfect in the snow, but he said
it was built to be used any time of year. All that was needed was
,.:,irluiig to pull the sled. Immediately, John Robert thought about
Atlas and Jenny, but his father shook his head. Then Mr. Herman
said the sled had been made to be pulled by Hercules.

Generations apart


We see an unhealthy shift occurring
within the church today, a shitl which is
the separation in many circles between
younger and older generations. In many
cases, younger generations are beginning
to view older generations as irrelevant, out
of step, and unable to relate to our current
world and many of its high tech gadgets.
The problem is not new, but this mentality
has invaded the Church and has begun to'
splinter her due to this segregation based
on age. It is not only unhealthy, it is un-
Biblical. Let's take a look at the situation.
History has shown that society's
knowledge began to grow when people
started living longer. In the early days of
mankind, much valuable wisdom was lost
due to older generations
dying off before they
could pass it on. This lost
knowledge had to be I
regained again by
succeeding generations
only to be lost again. The
cycle continued until the
time when older
generations were able to
spend time with younger :!'ifL
generations. The benefits REV LEONA
of grandparents TRAINA
interacting with their New Life Comi
grandchildren are Chapel, Gaines
incalculable. Wisdom is
imparted from one generation to the next,
wisdom which is not acquired by repeated
trial and error. It is true that we now live in
a technological age and knowledge is
expanding exponentially, but do not
discount the value of the aged when it
comes to imparting wisdom.
We miss great opportunities when
generations separate. In Titus 2:1-8, the
Bible tells us the following: "You must
teach what is in accord with sound
doctrine. Teach the older men to be
temperate, worthy of respect, self-
controlled, and sound in faith, in love and
in endurance. Likewise, teach the older
women to be reverent in the way they live,.
not to be slanderers or addicted to much
wine, but to teach what is good. Then they
can train the younger women to love their


husbands and children, to be self-
controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to
be kind, and to be subject to their
husbands, so that no one will malign the
word of God. Similarly, encourage the
young men to be self-controlled. In
everything set them an example by doing
what is good. In your teaching show
integrity, seriousness and soundness of
speech that cannot be condemned, so that
those who oppose you may be ashamed
because they have nothing bad' to 'say
about us."
The younger generation is also. being
set up for failure by separating from the
older generation; as the younger
generation disengages with the older they


R

m
s


are left to self-guidance. The
L experience of the aged set aside,
the younger generation will be left
with peers monitoring peers. The
Bible gives a great example of
how this failed years ago. King
Solomon chose not to listen to the
advice and wisdom of the
seasoned advisors. Instead he
chose to listen to a set of advisors
he established from his own age
group. The result was, the split in
M R. the kingdom of Israel and' the
unity damage was never repaired, the
ville conflict between the northern and
southern kingdoms ever present
until the fall of the kingdoms (1 Kings
12:10-17).
There is a warning for the older
generation as well. The older generation
needs to listen to the younger. They must
not squelch the youthful vibrancy, but be
willing to channel it by encouraging and
teaching in love. In many circles the two
must learn to live and work together all
over again.
In the end the older generation needs to
be willing to try new methods while the
younger generation needs to embrace the
wisdom of the older. Both generations
need each other. If the shift toward
segregation continues we will end up with
a two kingdom mentality, damaging the
effect of the church for the cause of Christ.
