Tensions rise as meeting with fire authority nears

County and MFA hope to win over other side


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
GAINESVILLE Each side is
laying it on the line when it comes to
providing fire protection in Alachua
County. Officials with the recently
formed Municipality Fire Authority


(MFA) have said either the County can
come to a negotiated agreement or risk
losing fire protection in the
unincorporated areas beginning Oct. 1.
County officials meanwhile say
they're willing to talk, but they have a
backup plan should the two groups


come to loggerheads.
The matter has a chance of being
settled during a long awaited meeting
between the Alachua County Board of
County Commissioners (BOCC) and
the MFA. The meeting is set for
Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Jack


Durance Auditorium at the county
administration building in downtown
Gainesville.
Monday will mark the first jointly
held meeting between both boards to
discuss a proposal which would
essentially merge the fire contracts


from six municipally operated fire
departments into one negotiated
agreement with Alachua County.
The MFA has met with Alachua
County's staff on several occasions

Hitchcock's Grocery

Staying local in 1n expanding market


BEN BOUKARI/Alachua County Today
Hitchcock's Market owner Alan Hitchcock is appreciated by many area farmers and business owners for his support of locally
grown produce and other goods.


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA As Alachua grows and the face of the
community changes, one local store owner has pledged to make
"consistency" his mantra.
Alan Hitchcock, 56, took over Hitchcock's Markets in 1974.
His -father and grandfather started the grocery store, and they
moved the headquarters to Alachua in about 1947.


Throughout the years, Hitchcock's has established itself as a
local store invested in the local community, and it has expanded to
12 stores throughout Alachua and surrounding counties.
Known for farm fresh fruits and vegetables, the store gets its
produce from some 20 local farmers, and it carries products that
come directly from area residents.
"We are all about being local," Hitchcock said. "I always want

Sexual offender


law set for final



approval tonight


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS Tonight,
the High Springs City
Commission will conduct a
second and likely final reading of
an ordinance limiting where in
the city sexual offenders and
predators may live.
Ordinance 2007-38 in High
Springs would create a new
chapter in the town's code of


ordinances which details laws by
which sexual offenders and
predators must abide.
The law specifically
prevents either sexual offenders
or predators from living within
2,500 feet of schools, child care
facilities, parks and other areas
where children frequent.

"There are a number of
sexual offenders and sexual

said, noting that the ordinance
was the subject of positive
feedback following an initial
public hearing recently.
The ordinance not only
affects sexual offenders and
predators though. It also calls for
requirements, responsibility anid
penalties for property owners and


agents that lease or rent to
"certain sexual offenders and

The adoption of sexual

But looking on the bright side, a January
birthday is better than, no birthday at all, or one
fraught with confusion.
Consider poor Dolly the sheep.
Surely you remember Dolly, the first mammal
in history cloned from an adult cell. If sheep paid
notice of such things as birthdays, when would
this genetically engineered barnyard animal with
the Mona Lisa smile celebrate hers?
The day she was born, which coincidentally
was July 5, the day her six-year-old mom was
born, the day her somatic cell nuclear transfer
was accomplished?
It's probably just as well that sheep don't keep
track of birthdays or that would be one bemused
lamb chop.
To paraphrase the now dearly departed Dolly,
in the face of the media frenzy about her
existence, "Baaah!"
Regardless, July is the month for some
extraordinary birthdays, most notably the birth of
this great nation. So, whether you celebrate the
Fourth of July because it's your birthday, your
anniversary or because it's a great American
holiday, have fun, be safe and blow out the color
coordinated candles for me.
And ... enjoy the fireworks!

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL N 1E W S THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 2008 A /


MFA: Co
Continued fiom page Al
res
said Micanopy Town Manager
Charles Kelly. Through those
meetings, the two entities have
been able to work through
several of their differences and
reach common ground he said.
But the point of contention
remains to be funding.
Fire Agreements Today
Under the current situation,
fire departments operated by
High Springs, Newberry,
LaCrosse, Hawthorne, Waldo
and Micanopy all provide fire
protection and emergency
services to the residents in their
respective towns and to
surrounding unincorporated
residents thanks to interlocal
agreements with Alachua
County.
Those agreements could all
come to screeching halts at the
start of the fiscal year on Oct. 1.
That's because consistent
funding cuts and inconsistent
treatment between the County
and each of the towns providing
the services has lead to
frustrations said High Springs
Mayor Larry Travis who also
serves as the chairman for the
MFA.
Travis said the majority of
the calls to which the High
Springs Fire Department
responded haven't even been in
the city limits at all. He
believes the County should pay
for all of those calls.
Alachua County Fire
Rescue (ACFR) Program
Manager Keith Godwin
disagrees saying that many of
High Springs' responses have
been to the City of Alachua and
the County shouldn't have to
pick up the tab.
The City of Alachua,
however, contracts its fire
services with ACFR which
operates a fire station in the
growing town. Although the
County is responsible for fire
protection in the City of
Alachua, if High Springs
responds to a fire there, it isn't
the County who should pay,
Godwin said.
Why?
According to Godwin, the
contract with the City of
Alachua is based on services
provided by ACFR. That means
the City of Alachua pays ACFR
based on how many calls the
agency responds to in that
municipality. But this is just the
tip of the iceberg in an issue all
sides describe as complex.
Who should pay for
equipment?
To further complicate the
matter, just last year, Alachua
County' began billing a capital
improvements fee to the City of
Alachua for a new fire engine
owned by ACFR.
The High Springs Fire
Department, however, recently


runty says it shouldn't have to pay for High Springs to

pond to calls in Alachua


purchased a new $325,000 fire
truck of which the County paid
nothing even though the truck is
used on calls in the County's
unincorporated area. Travis
calls this a disparity, but
Godwin said there are even
provisions in the agreements
with High Springs to allow for
the County to help fund new
equipment for that town's fire
department.
"All [they] had to do was
ask," he said.
High Springs would go to
the County to seek funding
assistance for the capital
expenditure of a truck and the
two parties could reach an
agreement on how much money
each would put up, Godwin
explained. The question
remains: Would the two parties
ever be able to reach an
agreement to fund a new piece
of capital equipment?
In LaCrosse, where the town
limits are among the smallest in
the county, the mostly volunteer
fire department responds to a
fire district which dwarfs that of
some of the county's largest
cities.
LaCrosse Fire Chief Danny
Hines h long complained
about the difficulty of being
fairly funded for the services his
department provides to Alachua
County.
Some 89-percent of the
emergency calls to which the
LaCrosse Fire Department
responds are outside the town
limits. Still, a small town like
LaCrosse doesn't have a large
staff and budget to negotiate
agreements with Alachua
County.
LaCrosse Mayor Diane
Dubberly said she hopes people
will show their support and be
heard at the meeting on Monday
evening.
"We are encouraging all of
our residents to go to this
meeting," she said.
Why the MFA exists
Suffice it to say, negotiating
mutual aid and other interlocal
agreements to provide all of
Alachua County's residents is a
complex process. And there's
power in numbers. As the
MFA, the six fire departments
participating in the MFA have
more power than any of them
do singly. Simplifying the
negotiation process and gaining
more leverage is why, Travis
said, the MFA was created.
"[The MFA] was a way for
the County to sit down with just
one entity and hammer out a
plan that works for everyone,"
the Mayor and MFA Chairman
said.'
He's not confident the
County will reach and
agreement with the MFA
though.


Ask Your Dentist by DougasM.

Salivary gland ,

disorders


Q: Are salivary glands subject
to disorders?
A: Salivary glands, which
produce the saliva that's necessary
for eating and for a healthy mouth,
are subject, like the rest ofthe body,
to disease. Tumors and cysts can
develop, just as they can on any
soft tissue in the mouth. Any tumor
should be biopsied to determine if
it is benign or cancerous.
Additionally, saliva glands can be
affected by stones, which are tiny
by hard accumulations of mineral,
like calcium. A stone can block a
salivary gland duct and block the
flow of saliva. When the saliva
backs up, it can cause swelling and


discomfort.
Stones can be removed
surgically. Should the problem be
chronic, the oral surgeon can make
an opening in the gland so that
saliva bypasses the duct- and goes
directly into the mouth. In rare
instances, the surgeon may remove
the gland entirely. The main
treatment for any sort of mouth
infection, the salivary glands
included, is antibiotic treatment.
Minor surgery may be required if
the infection has resulted in an
accumulation of pus. If you feel or
see anything unusual in or around
your mouth, talk with your dentist
as soon as possible.

"In my opinion, I think the
county staff and some of the
commissioners have made up
their minds that they're not
going to do certain things
required by the MFA.
"The deadline is Oct. 1 to
get this organized, or they'll be
providing their own fire
protection for the
unincorporated area."
He also believes the MFA
has extended the olive branch
saying, "We have walked the
extra mile to make this work.
"It's the most beneficial
system that any county could
have.
"It's the cheapest and most
economical way for the county
to provide fire protection in the
rural areas."
Although he's lost his
optimism, Travis said he's
hanging onto hope that an
agreement can be reached.
"I want the County to go in
there with an open mind and to
know the MFA is very serious
and it's here to stay."
That's exactly what the
BOCC intends to do said
Alachua County
Communications Coordinator
Mark Sexton.
"They are approaching the
meeting on Monday night in a
positive way and hope everyone
comes in with an open mind.
Funding fire protection
Sexton said the County
understands the budget woes all
cities are feeling these days.
The county too is working
through those. But, he said, the
BOCC's concern is that the
unincorporated residents who
pay the Municipal Services
Taxing Unit (MSTU) for fire
protection are not paying to
subsidize fire service inside of
the cities.
The County has suggested
the small towns join in and tax
their residents with the county's
MSTU to help fund municipal
fire protection.
As for the mechanism by
which one entity pays another
for mutual aid, Sexton said,
"There's no doubt that there's a
disagreement on what is fair."
"The municipalities want to
strike the best deals they can
and the county has the same


motivation."
If no agreement is reached
If Alachua County can't
reach an agreement with the
MFA, it appears there will be
major changes in the way fire
services are provided.
"If it comes down to that,
the County has a plan to deal
with that," said Sexton.
Among the possibilities the
communications coordinator
cited were moving county
resources around and even
contracting with other counties
to provide service to bordering
areas.
Sexton maintains that the
joint meeting next week will be
a great forum for public
discourse on fire protection.
The 6:30 p.m. meeting in
downtown Gainesville on
Monday could become the
public forum for many smaller
towns to vent frustrations which
have been festering for years
although both the MFA and
County have said they hope it's
a productive session.

BASEBALL:

Team seeking community support for travel


three games at the State Qualifiers in Ocala,
Florida according to Head Coach Landon Sapp.
During the qualifier opener, the Santa Fe
Babe Ruth Rookie All-Stars beat last year's state
runner-up. Palm Beach Gardens, in a 16-13 win.
During a second game, the Alachua-based team
won 13-3 against the 2007 state champion,
Julington Creek. The team sealed their spot in
the state tournament with a third win of the
weekend and the second against Julington Creek
with a score of 11-3.
In preparation for the state tournament over
the July 4th weekend, Sapp said "We're
continuing to work hard and being consistent
with our practice schedule."
The local team will be among 16 from
around the state in the same age bracket
participating in the tournament which will take


place in about a week. To move onto regionals,
Sapp said his team would need to post four wins
that weekend. If the team makes it through both
state and regionals, it would be headed to
nationals.
The state tournament, being held in Palm
Beach Gardens this year, has parents, coaches
and kids seeking community support to help
defray costs.
"Alachua Dental Center has been a great
sponsor," said Sapp who also noted the Santa Fe
Babe Ruth League's support of the team.
"We appreciate the community's support,"
he added.
Anyone wishing to donate to the team to
help defray some of the traveling expenses can
contact Santa Fe Babe Ruth League President
Mike Shentrup at 352-278-4291.

HITCHCOCK'S MARKETS:
Continued f/om page Al

Hitchcock promotes local


trade and opportunity


to give people the opportunity to make their
products succeed."
George Mells, an Archer resident whose
barbeque sauce is carried by Hitchcock's, said
Hitchcock has been vital to the success of his
business.
"[Hitchcock] is a very generous person, and we
explained to him that this was our first venture into a
business of this nature, and he helped us out a lot,"
Mells said. "He is the type of person you really want
to do business with."
Mells, who owns Mells' Delicious Food
Processing and Packaging, LLC, said Hitchcock has
also indicated he will sell Mells' pies, which are in
the final preparation stages and are slated to hit the
market soon.
Hitchcock said the grocery store established
roots in the local community in the beginning,
because when he was growing up, agriculture was
the major industry in Alachua.
He buys local products because he thinks it is
important to continue the concept of the "circle of
trade," he said.
The idea of the circle of trade is people buying
from local residents, and those residents then turning
around and buying from the company as well, so the
money stays in the local community.
Hitchcock said larger companies take the money


they receive and send it back to their hometowns and'
CEOs.
Hitchcock finds the idea of local trade so
important that he buys everything local from
insurance and banking services to produce and other
products.
"I'm trying to think of what we don't do local!"
he joked. "Well, we don't vacation local!"
One of the hottest topics buzzing around Alachua
right now is Wal-Mart, and although Hitchcock said
he is not anti-Wal-Mart, he said he believes his
grocery store has distinct advantages over the mega
corporation.
Hitchcock noted that his company does. a lot of
things differently that distinguish the store from the
competition, including buying local products.
"We have established ourselves as to who we are
and what we represent," he said. "People expect a,
quality shopping experience and quality service
from us, and that's what we will continue to
provide."
Hitchcock said his company is not like other
grocery stores, so Hitchcock's will survive the
onslaught of Wal-Mart.
"Do I think it's going to change our community?
Absolutely," he said. "But Hitchcock's will be fine.,
We've survived a lot of competitors over the years."

Kelly-Lynn


- Hollywood's breath of fresh air


By KEES BOER
Toxkn Entertainment l writer
I recently interviewed
Kelly-Lynn, the singer on one
of the 101 Dalmatians
soundtrack. It was truly one of
most enjoyable interviews I
have ever done as Kelly-Lynn
was truly a delight to talk with.
She is soft spoken, but very
determined, wholesome, yet
friendly. She loves God, family
and country, and lives life to
the fullest.
Kelly-Lynn grew up in
Ocala, Florida and she started
singing when she was just a
young girl. She recalled, "I
have been singing, since I was
really young in church. When I
was 10 years old, I was in the
school play, Grease, and we
had to sing and dance." Kelly-
Lynn told her mother that one
day she wanted to be a famous
singer. "They took my word
seriously and within two


weeks, they put me in voice
lessons one or two times a
week." Her first song, "1
believe," hit 60 Christian Radio
stations around the country.
She kept singing and recently
recorded the 101 Dalmatians
song.
When her parents saw that
Kelly-Lynn was serious about
her singing career, they
sacrificed and moved the
family from Ocala to Los
Angeles. "We moved here
specifically for my career. My
parents support me and they
were willing to sell their house
and live in an apartment in Los
Angeles. It's a true blessing and
what they did for me, I'll never
ever forget," said Kelly-Lynn.
It's no wonder that their
parents were honored for their
sacrifice 'for their daughter.
"There was actually a
newspaper article before I left
about parents supporting their
children and my parents were


in it Ior giving up their house
and everything. They really
took a risk and I'm very
thankful. Los Angeles is so
much more expensive than
Ocala."
This was not the first time
her parents sacrificed for
Kelly-Lynn. Explaining, Kelly-
Lynn said that even before she
was born, her mother made
what could have been a life or
death decision. "When she was
pregnant with me, she could
have died. Her kidney failed
and had to be removed. They
didn't think that she would live
through it." Doctors suggested
that terminating the pregnancy
would save her life, but as
Kelly-Lynn says, "Thanks to
her, I'm living today. She is my
hero. She's been through a lot
and always manages to get
through. She's a great person."
We spoke about the type of
music she sees herself
performing in the future. "I
want my music to be positive. I.


did several Disney songs. Both
songs are positive songs. I
don't want to do anything that
is going to contradict my faith,"
she said.
I have no doubt that we will
be seeing a lot of Kelly-Lynn in
the future. She's truly a breath
of fresh air and was a delightful
interview: If you'd like to read

SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua County Today

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
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.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 2008 D,


The sin of narcissus


What does everyone in the world have in common?
The first thing that comes to mind is that we are all
human, created in the image of God. We also share other
traits, some of which people don't even want to think
about. Saint Paidul reminds us, "Therefore as by the
offnce of one [judgment came] upon all men to
condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [the
five gift came] zqon all men unto justification of life. "
(Romans 5:18) The message here is that we share in
how sin separates mankind fiom God. This isn't just a
problem for Christians, but for all mankind. This
sepamtion can come about by our indulgirtg in self-love
(narcissism) or hiding from God in our
sins and faults-this alienation from
God is real and results in destruction.
Jesus spoke very directly about the
dangers and immorality of self-love.
For example, in Saint Matthew's
Gospel, He tells us: "For whosoever
will save his life shall lose it: and
whosoever will lose his life for my sake
shall find it." (Matthew 16:25). He '
repeated this warming so often that it
appears in all four of the Gospels, e.g., in
Saint John- "He that loveth his life shall
lose it: and he that hateth his life in this THE VEN. J
world shall keep it unto life eternal. If LEASURE
any man serve me, let him follow me; All Saints A
and where I anm there shall also my Church, Gai
servant be: if any man serve me, him A parish of t
will [my] Father honour:" (John 12:25- Christian Ei
26). Church
The Greeks had a story about a man
who loved himself so much that the gods ended up
destroying him because he wouldn't love them or
anyone else. The man's name was Narcissus, which is
where we get the word narcissism for self-absorption,
egotism, selfishness and conceit The Greeks' story
taught a type of morality where a person could achieve
some type of harmony with the gods through good
works or self-enlightenment but it stops short of
salvation.
Christ doesn't offer such a life ruled by fate or by
unmerciful gods. He offers us the promise of
redemption as a gift from a merciful God, who revealed
Himself through His Christ When we repent and are
willing to see our inadequacies as met in Jesus, we are
set free to know God's love and share in His eternal life,
enjoying eternal fellowship with our Father in Heaven.
This freedom comes only when we turn to the truth and
believe in our hearts, that Jesus came not to destroy us,
but to open the gates of heaven, and by grace, bring us
to eternal life through His self-offering and love.
The love of God has been revealed to us in Christ,
by His death, resurrection and ascension, and by the

coming ol'the Holy Ghost. The Gospel is our liberation,
irom fate and from fear; in Christ, we can call God in
Heaven "Our Father ", and turn to Him for help.
This all relates to the Epistle of Saint James, where
every Christian is encouraged to be a "doer of the
word." This is not basic "moral-ism", and it is not living
by a book of rules; it is to live our lives in Christ Jesus,
which has always been the teaching of the New
Testament
Saint James compares someone who only "hears"
the Truth of Jesus Christ--someone who hears the
words but doesn't act on them-to a man who looks into
a mirror at himself and then goes his way,
satisfied with what he has seen. In other
words, he accuses the mere "hearer" of
committing the sin of Narcissus.
Narcissus loved a reflection of himself,
S* the most perverted form of self-love there is;
he died for a mostly imaginary picture that
he had of himself. Our own self-love or self-
hatred is no different than the error of
i Narcissus. He, in fact, did not see himself as
he actually was deep inside his soul-he
saw only what he wanted to see: a false
perfection and a false self-sufficiency. If we
HN E. place our faith in the false image we have of
ourselves, dismissing our need for Christ,
glican we commit the same act of self-delusion that
esville. destroyed Narcissus. Scriptures tell us that
ie our only hope of true freedom from sin and
scopal from self, is to "look into the perfect law of
liberty and to continue therein."
The perfect law of liberty is Christ Jesus.
In Him we find the Truth of who we are and our freedom
from sin and death. The opposite ofthe sin ofnarcissism
is to study the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ,
worshipping not what we are, but who He is and then
bringing our thoughts and lives, into line with the Truth
we find in Him.

Five easy steps to make your



health-care wishes known


By LINDSEY THOMAS
Special to Alachua County Today
We make a list before going grocery shopping
and reservations before going on a trip, but when
it comes to planning for end-of-life, the road is
less traveled.
Making health-care decisions is difficult in
the best of circumstances, but making decisions
for others is even more complicated. That's why
we should all take advantage of a powerful tool:
an advance directive, which informs our health-
care providers and loved ones of our wishes
should we not be able to speak for ourselves.
Terri Schiavo's situation is a perfect example.
Schaivo collapsed in her home in 1990 and
suffered brain injury due to oxygenation
starvation to the brain. She would spend the rest
of her life in medical facilities while a public
battle over her wishes ensued. Schaivo had no
advance directive. Her husband and parents
disagreed on what Schaivo would want. After a
long battle, including the involvement of the
Florida Supreme Court and Florida legislature, a
local court ruled her feeding tube could be
removed. Schiavo died in 2005 at 41.
If Schaivo had an advance directive, her


wishes could have been honored. And it's not
hard to make sure that yours are.
The Five Wishes document is one option; it
meets legal requirements in 40 states including
Florida. The five wishes are: 1. Which person you
want to make health-care decisions for you when
you can't make them; 2. The kind of medical
treatment you want or don't want; 3. How
comfortable you want to be; 4. How you want
people to treat you; and 5. What you want your
loved ones to know. It is thorough and easy to
complete.
Make your wishes known. Complete an
advance directive today, and put it in a safe place
that is accessible. Also give copies to your proxy
and doctor.
Call Haven Hospice at 800-727-1889 for a
complimentary copy of Five Wishes. You may
also visit
http://www.agingwithdignity.org/5wishes. The
document is available in various languages.
Lindsey Thomas is a communications
coordinator for Haven Hospice. Haven's 16-
countv service area includes Alachua County and
the E. T York Hospice Care Center in Gainesville.

High Springs Community Theater


presents "On Golden Pond"


Special to Alachua County Today
HIGH SPRINGS The
High Springs Community
Theater is excited to announce
it's 3rd production of the 2008
Season. "On Golden Pond" is a
heartwarming story for all

visited by their daughter
Chelsea and her fiance with his
son in tow. The play explores
the often turbulent relationship


between the young woman and
her difficult (but funny) father
growing up as well as the
difficulties faced by a couple in
the twilight years of their long
marriage.

Pond" are Malcolm Sanford as
Norman Thayer, Sally
Kimberly as Ethel Thayer,
Mary Ryngert and Cindy Lasley
as Chelsea Thayer, Austin
Jackson as Billy Jr., Randy
Zillner as Bill, and Nash
Sylvester as Charlie. The
Director is Carol Jackson. The
cast is strong and the characters


are so real. This is going to be
a hit!
"On Golden Pond" opens
Thursday, July 3, 2008 and ruis
through Sunday, July 20, 2008.
Showtimes are: Thursdays-
Saturdays at 8 p.m., and
Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are
available at The Coffee Clutch
