Newberry budget to be finalized Monday


City faces challenges in maintaining services


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter


NEWBERRY Newberry's budget
for fiscal year 2009 is set to be finalized
on Monday and calls to reduce benefits
of city employees and raise the tax
millage rate to 3.99-percent.
The revised budget, which increases
2008's tax millage rate of 3.69 to 3.99,


has forced cuts to be made in basically
everything not related to service, said
Mayor John Glanzer.
"We have, in anticipation of the new
budget, about five fewer positions,"
Glanzer said.
These vacant positions include one
layoff in the water and sewer department,
one in the electric department, tvwo in the
streets and roads division and one in the


planning and building department.
In addition to layoffs, city employees
will be affected through an increase in
health care deductibles, lower travel and
cellphone allowances and fewer available
job positions. According to Glanzer,
positions vacant from retirements this
year will not be re-filled.
The new budget originally required
the health insurance rates for city

Newberry's butcher shop


BEN BOUKARI/Alachua County Today
Nestled in the heart of downtown Newberry tucked away from State Road 26, Newberry Cold Storage is a family-
operated butcher shop where many local farmers and ranchers have taken their livestock for the freshest cuts
of meat. Today, the store is a frequent stop on the way home for many area residents who want custom cuts,
cured bacon and sausage.


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY Since grocery
stores have become a one-stop resource
to busy families looking for quick
meals, baked goods, prescription drugs
and beauty supplies all in one place, it
is easy to overlook the specialty shops
that still produce one single, perfected
trade


However, residents in Newberry
seem to be drawn to the subtle butcher
store that hides behind Newberry City
Hall and the bustle of downtown.
Newberry Cold Storage is a. relic
rich in history and a business sustained
by generations of families since its
establishment in the 1920s.
A business started by five investors:
Tom Roland, Bill Barry, Paul Norsleet,
Felton Philtot and Heru- Picket.


Newberry Cold Storage began 'as a
butcher store and also had a retail
clothing store which was added to the
building in the 1950s.
After being sifted through the hands
of generations of owners, the building
still stands today as Newberry Cold
Storage, owned and run by Sanford
Roberts and his family for the past 15

instead saying the town needed to roll the
property tax rate backward to 6.05: But his

Help your grandparents



save $3,600


By DONNA MAITLAND
Social Security District Manager
Special to Alachua County Today

Grandparents are known for their wisdom
and advice. It's likely that you can go to your
grandparents with a question and they'll have an
answer for you, given the experience that comes
with age. Now is your chance to give your
grandparents a bit of advice.
Tell them about the Medicare prescription
drug plan and about the extra help they may be
able to get through Social Security. You'll be
doing more than just giving them some advice.
You could be saving them as much as $3,600
each per year.
The high cost of prescription drugs can be
a burden on people with limited income and
resources. Extra help available through
Social Security can pay part of their monthly
premiums, annual deductibles and prescription
co-payments. The extra help could be worth up
to $3,600 per year.
To figure out whether they're eligible, Social
Security needs to know their income' and the
value of their savings, investments and real estate
(other than the home they live in). To qualify
for the extra help, your grandparents' must be
receiving Medicare and have:
m Income limited to $15,600 for an individual


or $21,000 for a married couple living together.
Even if their annual income is higher, your
grandparents still may be able to get some help
with monthly premiums, annual ,deductibles
and prescription co-payments. Some examples
where income may be higher include if they or
their spouse:
* Support other family members who live with
them;
* Have earnings from work; or
* Live in Alaska or Hawaii; and
* Resources limited to $11,990 for an individual
or $23,970 for a married couple living together.,
Resources include such things as bank accounts,
stocks and bonds. We do not count their house
and car as resources.
Social Security .has an easy-to-use online
application that anyone family members,
friends and caregivers can complete. You can
find it at www.socialsecurity.gov. To apply by
phone or get an application, call Social Security
at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and
ask for the Application for Help with Medicare
Prescription Drug Plan Costs. Or go to the
nearest Social Security office.
To learn more about the Medicare prescription
drug plans and special enrollment periods, visit
www.medicare.gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE
(1-800-633-4227; TTY 1-877-486-2048).

thing is service levels. It puts
pressure on our ability to-
provide the same service we
were providing. When you have
50 employees and you lay off
five, that is 10-percent of your
staff, and that has to have an
impact."
The pressure of a slowing
economy and the high cost of
fuel have also contributed to
the budget adjustment since
the basic costs of running a city
continue to soar.
"One of the biggest impacts
we've seen is an 80-percent
increase in fuel costs, which also
causes the cost of distributing
water to increase," Ashby said.
The changes in .water
and sewer rates come from a
modification brought about by


the rise of the cost of water that
started in April.
When sewer and water were
together as one charge, residents *
were paying for the high cost of
sewer even when they were just
using utilities such as sprinklers.
Now, the new proposal separates
the, two utilities as different
charges to save residents money
on running water.-
Although the $50,000
Homestead Exemption Act and
the loss of 4-percent revenue
from fuel and utility taxes hit
the city in a $35,000 disparity
from last year's budget, growth
in Newberry may make up for
the difference.
The city is now financing
an Olympic sized archery
center for Olympic athletes and


coaches which will add on to the
Newberry Sports Complex and
is scheduled to open in summer
2009. This project aims to
stimulate the local economy by
hosting local and international
competitions at the facility.
As the budget is set to be
finalized on Monday .and will
be put into affect on Oct. 1,
Ashby does not think there will
be a significant impact on, the
community as of yet.
"Working hard to maintain
the same level of service is
the real issue," Ashby said..
"Hopefully we'll have some
growth and we'll get back on
track."

GRAPSKI:
Continued from page A 1


Bond reduced from


$60,000 to $1,500


charges of disorderly conduct,
trespass after warning, resisting
arrest with violence and three
counts of battery on a law
enforcement officer.
He was arrested last year
on charges of battery on law
enforcement officers after a
confrontation with former Police
Chief Robert Jernigan.
Grapski had entered the
Alachua Police Department
offices to get information
about a closed case, and when
Jernigan told him he had no
further information, Grapski
.was asked to leave. However,
Grapski refused to leave, and
Jernigan locked him out of the
building.
Grapski banged on the door,
and police ended up arresting
him. Police reported that.Grapski
kicked Jemigan in the leg, head-
butted another officer in the chin
and kicked a third officer in the
hand.
Following his first
appearance after his arrest,
Grapski was taken back to the
Alachua County Jail, where
he was to undergo a routine


strip search before entering the
general population of the jail.
However, he refused to
,be strip searched, and officers
sprayed Grapski with pepper
spray.
Grapski reportedly became
violent, and detention officers
had to place him in a restraining
chair. One detention officer
reported an elbow injury as a
result of the scuffle.
After eight days in jail,
. Grapski was hospitalized due to
deteriorating health stemming
from a hunger strike. His bond
was soon reduced from $60,000
to $1,500 because his healthcare
was costing the county a large
amount of money, Mann said.
Grapski was ordered
to undergo a mental health
evaluation before posting
bond, and not have contact
with Jemigan or Alachua City
Manager Clovis Watson. He is
also prohibited from returning
to Alachua's government
complex.


Have a talk and



know your options



in end-of-life care


By LINDSEY THOMAS
Communications Coordinator
Haven Hospice
Special to Alachua County Today
No one is prepared when
the doctor walks into the room
and explains that you or a loved
one has an illness that cannot
be cured; Both family, and
patient often receive this ne'Ws
at a time when they are already
at wit's end emotionally,
spiritually and physically. But
what if the illness is there yet
the conversation about end-of-
life options never happens?
New research. : shows
that cancer patients are not
necessarily getting straight
talk from their doctors. In a
recent federally funded study
of 603 patients with advanced
cancer, only one-third -said
their doctors had discussed
. end-of-life care. All patients in
the study had life expectancies
of less than a year. They were
interviewed at the beginning
of the study and were being
followed until they died. Of
the more than half who have
died thus far, the patients who
hadtalks about end-of-life care
were three times less likely to
spend their final week of life in
intensive care and four times
less likely to be on breathing
machines. This allows for
more comfort and quality of
life at the end of life.
The study, presented in
May. at an American Society
of Clinical Oncology meeting,
also found that patients who did


talk with their doctors about
end-of-life care were no more
likely :to become depressed
than those who didn't have the
same type of talk.
On Aug., 20, the California
Right to Know End-of-Life,
Options Act passed in the
Senate, marking a national
precedent in end-of-life care.
The act requires that when,
terminally ill patients ask
about end-of-life care options,
the physician must either offer
a comprehensive, accurate
discussion of all legal end-of-
life care options or refer the.
. patient to someone who will.
(The bill must now be signed
by the governor.)
It is important to realize
that individuals with advanced
cancer are not the only ones
who can and should discuss
end-of-life care options with,
their doctors. Anyone with
' .an illness in which curative
treatment is no longer an
option should have these
conversations.
There is ,a wealth of
resources available to patients
and 'families when end-of-
life care is chosen. For more
information about Haven
Hospice, call 1-800-727-1889.'
Lindsey Thomas is a
communications coordinator
'for Haven Hospice. Haven's

New UF publication aims to help


families manage financial difficulties


By TOM NORDLIE
Special to Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE To help families
struggling to make ends meet, the
University of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences has published
a new bottom-line guide to personal
finances.
Titled "Managing in Tough Times," the
40-page booklet is available free at county
extension offices and online at http://fycs.
ifas.ufl.edu.
The booklet was created in response to
recent economic woes, said Nayda Torres,
a professor and chairwoman of UF's
family, youth and community sciences
department.
"Families, are faced with making
difficult choices as the cost of living
continues to increase but their income
does not," Torres said.
Published in English and Spanish, the
booklet contains 18 chapters, addressing
topics from savings and teen employment
to stress and low-cost entertainment. Each
chapter was written by UF experts in the
subject.


But users will need to do more than read
the booklet, they'll need to take action,
said Michael Gutter, a family, youth and
community sciences assistant professor
who led the project.
For example, one 'of the most
important steps in financial management is
determining your net worth, which means
taking stock of assets and liabilities, Gutter
said. The process may take a little time, but
it provides a road map for progress.
"We encourage people to assess their
situation right now," he said. "But we also
want them to look ahead just a bit."
That means finding ways to increase
income and reduce expenses, the keys
to building wealth. Much of the booklet
is devoted to ideas on prioritizing debts
and handling them more efficiently,
saving money on basic needs, and finding
overlooked sources of income.
Unlike most UF extension publications,
"Managing in Tough Times". is the size
of an address book and printed on tough
card-stock pages held together with a
ring binder. It was designed this way to
encourage users to carry it with them,


SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua County Today
are partnering to bring you "A Familiar Face." The purpose of this
campaign is to get young people reading. Alachua County Today
will' publish an eight-chapter serialized short story, "A Familiar
Face" 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.

children of all ages and adults too. Many of the tools for children


Gutter said.
Family, youth and community sciences
faculty had been discussing the idea of
a. bottom-line financial project for some
time, he said. But the booklet was created
at the request of IFAS Dean for Extension
Larry Arrington, who was concerned about
recent events.
"As we looked around the state at
the pressures facing families as a result
of energy costs, rising living expenses
and the number of families struggling
. with mortgages, we decided that a quick
reaction was necessary," Arrington said.
Department faculty and extension
personnel are planning an education
program for Florida residents based on
the booklet, Gutter said. The program,
emphasizing discussion and practical
activities, will be available at extension
offices beginning later this year.

Grandfather said the bomb was a powerful weapon. it was
so powerful that it ended a long and bloody war. Grandfather
stopped for a moment and then told Scov that if the wrdar had
continued millions of people around rthe world would have
died in the fighting and famine.
Scotry had never heard of ihe Berlin Airlift, and he wasn't
,ure what the atomic bornb was. But he didn't ask any more
questions. He knew he could learn about them in Lhe books.
That afternoon, after Grandfather Edwards left,
Scotty hurried to his room and pulled

Man in boxers burglarizes


neighbors' home


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA An Alachua
man was arrested early Sunday
morning after he allegedly stole
items from his neighbors' home
on N.W.. 166th Place while
wearing boxers and house
slippers.
Johnnie Lee Hamilton, 43,
was arrested at about 12:30
a.m. on Sunday after police
found him behind a house with
a pillowcase filled with stolen
items.
The monitored alarm
system of the residence was set
off when the burglar entered,
and when the alarm company


called the residence to obtain a
pass code, a man who refused
to identify himself answered
and was unable to provide
the proper code, said Alachua
Police Department (APD)
spokeswoman Carrie Lund.
Alarm company officials
notified APD about the incident,
and when officers arrived they
found the. front door of the
house open.
The officers called for a
canine unit to search the house,
and while waiting for the unit
-they searched a shed in the
backyard.,
Hamilton was found behind
the shed wearing black boxers
and house shoes, and officers


found a pillowcase matching
bedding from the house beside
him. The pillowcase contained
DVDs, cologne, perfume and a
watch.
A bedroom inside the
.house appeared to have been
ransacked, with nightstand
drawers open and ransacked,
and items had been thrown on
a bed.
I The owners of the house
were not home during the
burglary, and officers later
found out that Hamilton lives
across, the street from the
victims, Lund said.

HS BUDGET:
Continued lioi pag" I41


Coughlin says 'cut turkeys'


four other colleagues disagreed
After hours of pleadings b. numerous
residents and other commissioners. in the spirit
of cooperation. Coughlin finally budged from hius
position and offered the compromise of 6.15 mills.
The mo'e didn't come before other compromises
i ere offered
Commissioner Jim Gabnel had earlier offered
up a compromise of 6.21 mills which would allow%
the City to have the 11th firefighter position, keep
two pohce officer posinons which were on the
chopping block and other positions and programs
which were likely to be reduced or eliminated.
Unwilling to accept Gabriel's offer, Coughlin
said he didn't think his fellow commissions were
really ready to make needed budget cuts. Following
Coughlin's cries for budget cuts, Commissioner
Kirk Eppenstein called on anyone to find areas for
cuts in the budget, and Coughlin did.
Coughlin suggested slashing about $1,900
used to give employees turkeys during the holiday
season. He pointed to another $1,000 in party
favors at Christmas. The single largest cut Coughlin
recommended was an $11,000 intern position.
Cutting that from the budget, Eppenstein warned,
would mean the town would lose a young minority
college student, typically from the community, who
offered diversity to the city's staff and brought more
to the table than the city would ever pay. ,
Still, finding enough funding for a firefighter and
other positions, would take more than cutting a few
turkeys, an intern and some travel funding for the
commission. After finally reaching a compromise
on the mdlage. Mayor Larry Travis and the other


commissioners quickly jumped on board to accept
the offer
The newly accepted millage rate presented by
Coughlihn brought a fair bit of angst for Ganbnel
who didn't like the idea of funding a budget w which
may potentially use contingency funds.
"'I am not comfortable with the village rate
because it will force the city to dip into general
fund reserves." he said.
Commissioners adopted the tentanve budget
following setting of the mnllage rate. That budget
will require some revisions before final adoption
next week because of almost $19,000 needed to
fully fund existing and needed fire positions. In
a 4-1 vote, the commission voted in favor of the
budget, knowing that City Manager Jim Drumm
will need to locate the nearly $20,000 in the budget
by holding off on a capital project.
Gabriel cast the dissenting vote on the budget,
saying the budget was not being properly funded
to begin with and was leaving the city to take from
reserve funds, in the event of 'some unexpected
expenses or disaster. Gabriel specifically cited the
fire departments contingency fund which had less
than $4,000.
Other commissioners agreed with Gabriel, but
still moved ahead with the adoption of the budget
in hopes that Drumm will find the needed funds'
after a careful combing of the budget.
The commission will be required to cast a
unanimous vote for the 6.15 mills when it meets
again on Sept. 22. The budget only requires a
majont. \ote of the commission.

Iron man on DVD


By KEES BOER
Today Entertainment Writer

The latest superhero film
is Iron Man starring Robert
Downey, Jr., as Tony Stark, the
President of Stark Enterprises,
a weapons manufactory
company.
Tony Stark is quite a
playboy. He makes billions of
dollars from his company. He
lives life to the fullest from a
pure materialistic standpoint.
He parties and he's having a
great time. He's has no idea or
conscience what his weapons
do or who uses them.
One day he decides to
visit the military commanders
fighting in Afghanistan to sell
his latest weapon. On the way
back, his vehicle is ambushed
and he is taken hostage. And
he notices that the terrorists are
using his weapons.
Locked up in a cave, he is
forced into designing a weapon
for a terrorist organization.
He has only a certain
number of days and cameras.
are watching him. He's also
accompanied by Yinsen (Shaun
Toub). Together they design a
metal suit that works sort of like
a coat of armor, combined with


weapons and the ability to fly.
Somehow the terrorists don't
notice this,.and with it he's able
to escape from the terrorists.
His life has been changed in
the last few months, and when
he arrives back in the United
States, he starts to make some
changes in his factory. He wants
to stop selling these weapons to
the terrorists, but not everyone
,in his plant is happy with this
idea.. Obadiah Stane (Jeff
Bridges) has always worked
with him and has functioned
as his agent. Now, he becomes
Tony Stark's biggest opponent.
On the side Tony perfects
the armor suit that he designed
in the cave, and the gadget filled
suit is very impressive.
I thought the film was
very entertaining. It held my
attention and it is very fast
moving. I couldn't see Robert
Downey, Jr., in this role, but he
pulls it off.
I'm not sure if I would
necessarily suggest this film
for the entire family to see.
There is a bit of violence and
profanity in the film and several
suggested sexual scenes. It is
appropriately rated PG-13.
The film comes on a two disk
DVD set and it comes with over

Nameless to protect the guilty


There has been a good bit of election year political
smack down going on lately. Much of it is nonsensical,
but at times it does offer an outlet for those with a
warped sense of humor.
To give the rest of us "normal" folks a wee break
from the political vitriol, today I offer a bit of humor -
about children. And yes, there can be humor in pain, or
so I keep reminding myself.
As the Internet is the acknowledged grand purveyor
of information, some of which is rumored to actually
be true, every now and then I run across, something that
resonates. And as a mother of four boys,
and one girl (bless her heart), I can identify
with a particular piece that described the
creative, if not somewhat reckless, nature
of children especially boys.
Please ... don't try the following at
home... or anywhere else for that matter!
The writer of said Internet material,
who apparently has survived his or her
own children's experiences, tells us that
if you spray hair spray on "dust bunnies"
and run over then with roller blades, they.
can ignite. .us r
Certainly ... but rather tame, I must


say. Ulen 1501o
I have learned through one of my sons
(who shall remain nameless) that if you
spray hair spray on a cigarette lighter's open flarn,e, you
have your own personal blowtorch.
Not recommended. Do not try this at home.
Trust me.
We are also told that a three-year old boy's voice is
louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
I believe this.
But it is also amazing how far a. spoon loaded
with mashed potatoes can travel through the air when
launched by a two-year-old (also nameless) in a crowded
restaurant. It's also, amazing that an entire family did
not eat out for over five years because of this traumatic
experience.
Next is the advice that if you hook a dog leash over
a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate


a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a
Superman cape. It is-strong enough, however, if tied to
a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20
ft. room.
This is a bad idea.
My boys had their own ideas of fun with the ceiling
fan..
When bouncing on a bed under a slowly rotating
ceiling fan, it is noteworthy to know that when a
10-year-old boy's head hits the blades, it emits a sound
best described as a dull thud. This is followed by peals
of laughter and taunts to do it again from
male siblings (nameless again).
., Do not try this at home!
Apparently, baseballs should not be
tossed at a ceiling fan when it is on. When
using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to
throw the ball up a few times before you
'get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a
long way.
Makes sense.
We are also told that the. glass in
windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop
a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
Guess what? Glass in windows
akari doesn't stop the forearms of a six-year-old
boy (nameless) when in high pursuit by
siblings (also nameless).
True story. .
And don't try this at home, either.
When you hear the toilet flush and the words 'uh
oh', it's. already too late.
Boys (nameless) -think that toilets are apparently
great. hiding places for toothbrushes, super balls, and
action figures, and the occasional screwdriver when
trying to remove toothbrushes, super balls, and action
figures.
A six-year-old boy can start a fire with a flint rock
,even though a 36-year-old man says they can only do it
in the movies.
However, making a tent inside the house using a
blanket, a chair, and a table lamp can start a fire without
flint rock, as evidenced by (nameless).


S.Did you know that certain Lego's will pass through
the digestive tract of a 4-year-old boy?
I know that a nickel swallowed while going.through
a car wash will pass through .the digestive tract of a
7-year-old boy. (nameless).
Play dough and microwave should not be used in the
same sentence.
I can't vouch for play dough, but unequivocally,
marshmallows and a microwave should not be used in
the same sentence.
Some fire departments boast a five-minute response
time.
Our firedepartment has been on speed dial for many
years. Besides putting out fires, they are quite helpful
when a boy's (nameless) forehead meets the pavement
while playing basketball. Yes, I know, goose eggs oil
the head look worse than they really are. Tell that to the
aforementioned boy (nameless) with forearms through
window.
Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when
driving.
Pine straw and old Coca-Cola carefully inserted in
a gas tank reduce noise when driving....to a standstill.
Ask any four-year-old boy or one in particular
(nameless).
Spiders are to be. feared, and in-this case, flight
is definitely better than fight. Just ask all the
aforementioned individuals (nameless). But as a last
resort, that hairspray-fueled personal blowtorch works
wonders, too.
Hey, don't try this at home!
I know you want to.
Seriously don't do it!
What are you, 10 years old?

we can be perfect when the customers get
in," she said.
Although the bakery won't have any
fried foods, Baggett said everyone will be
able to find something they like.
."We'll have sandwiches, salads and
killer sweets that's for sure!" she joked.
Baggett said her favorite treat to bake is
a butter cookie with a truffle center, though


she is partial to baked goods in general.
"I've wanted to open a bakery for about
10 years now," she said, "but I'm a baker by
trade, and I really want people to experience
the foods I have to offer."
The business will feature a cinnamon
roll bar in the morning so kids can put their
favorite toppings on their rolls, she said.
People will have plenty of opportunities
to satiate their sweet tooth at the bakery,


Auction nets town over $1


a minute


Special to Alachua County Today
FT WHITE On a Saturday
morning in July the quiet town
of Ft. White was bustling with
excitement. Bidders from as far
away as Moultrie, Georgia were
.gathered behind the town hall in
anticipation of the auction. In
all, over 60 bidders signed up
for the opportunity to compete
for the 16 items up for bid.
The tension swelled, as the
preview drew to a close and the
time.for the auction approached.
Due to the excellent condition of
the equipment to be auctioned
(even though it was surplus)
there was much conjecture as
to what prices the individual
articles would command.
The, town contracted Brewer
Auction Service, a local auction
company, to market and conduct
this auction. This proved to be
a good decision.
There was a near carnival
atmosphere as the auctioneer

years.
"It's a specialty type store,"
Roberts said. "Most people
go to the grocery store for
convenience, but we have things
you just can't find in a grocery."
Roberts and his family are
continuing the tradition of the
butcher shop by making their
own cured and smoked bacon,
sausages, ham and other cured
meats.
The business today spans
to over five counties, providing
meats to towns and cities in
Marion, Alachua, Levy, Dixie,
and Gilchrist counties.
Although the, slaughtering
process is not allowed on the
premises, customers bring their
livestock to Roberts' Chiefland
location, and the meat is then
transferred to the historic
Newberry store where it is dried,
prepared and packaged.
"Most of the livestock that
comes here is organically fed
and is actually for the use of the
farmers, so they want their meat
as fresh as possible," Roberts
said.
However, the butcher shop
in Newberry actually once was
the site for live slaughtering and
livestock storage.
Rufus Roland, son of Tom
Roland, one of the original
investors, said the process was
handled slightly differently
years ago.
"They would take the animal
out to the field to slaughter it
back then, and they would take
the meat back to the store to
prepare," Roland said.
Although Newbery Cold
Storage has been passed through
different owners throughout the
years, the original roots of the
store remain in the city. The
families of several of the original
owners still live in Newberry
such as Roland and Billy Barry,
son of Bill Barry, Sr.
Bill Barry, Sr. may ring a
bell for residents born and raised
in Newberry during the early
years of the store. Barry was a

"He created the medicine
to treat screw worms," Roberts
said. "He is one of the founders
that was sort of famous in
Newberry."
However, in the same way
that this thriving business hides -B
inside a quaint store behind
the bustle of the town, its rich
history may also be unknown to
many Newberry residents.

desperation, but not for God,
but rather for relief. Those who
truly call out to Him are the
ones that we see-released from
the bondage to a particular
sin. The release may not be
instantaneously, but release will
come for those who draw near
"to God.
I close today with this. The
one who draws near to God
will find refreshing. They draw
near in their time of need at the
point in which they are. They
do not separate from the sin and
then draw near to God. It is in
the drawing near that the sin is
separated from them. Sin in out
lives begins to melt away and
our consciences cleared when
we draw near to God.
He is waiting. What are you
waiting for?
