name change, Watson also
received a 6.8-percent pay raise
and accolades from co-workers,
friends and family.
Watson has always
recognized his humble


beginnings in the Merrillwood
housing complex, which are
government-ownedd projects.
"Wow," Watson said as he
held back tears at the Sept. 8
meeting. "I cannot be more
proud to have a road named
after me there at the projects
where I was. raised. I'd rather
that than [Highway] 441, and I
truly mean that."
Watson's assistant,' Tara'
Henderson, said she cannot
tell people how much she
appreciates Watson and his
commitment to the city.
"I've had the luxury, and I


do mean luxury, of working for
Clovis 11 years this December,"
Henderson said. "Really and
truly I think what he does is
grossly underestimated."
She suggested the date forth
ceremony be Sept. 29, because
that is Watson's 50th birthday,
but the planners decided. to
postpone the event so Watso6
could celebrate his birthday.
The city will provide

A homework assignment leads Scotty Brown to discover -"A
Familiar Face" in the pages of history and to learn about the ro-e
a boy from Missouri had as an adult in international decisi6onh
of humanitarian aid, war and racial equality. Scott takes from
the lesson a new appreciation for the top job in America and the.
realization that even he could someday be president.ofithe United

Chapter Four by KaY HiVe/Y


SOn Saturday morning, Scotty hurried downtown.
rWalking all around the courthouse, he found the spot
where Mr. Truman had stood in 1939.
Checking to be sure no one was watching, Scotty stood
straight and tall just as Mr. Truman had done more than 60
years before. As he stood there, Scotty wondered if he might
grow up to be President of the Llnited States. Then he took
a mental photograph of himself standing in front of the
courthouse door.
When Scotty got back home, he was surprised to find
Grandfather Edwards sitting in the porch swing. Grandfather
was one of Scotty's best friends. He was full of stories, and
he liked to go out to the park to watch the boys play.
Scony plopped down beside Grandfather and they began
pushing the swing as hard as they could. Grandfather was
as much of a kid as Scotry, and the two often got into trouble
r together. Pidtng too high in the porch swing usually got
them in trouble.
Scotty and his grandfather talked about important things when
they sa min the swing. On this day, Scotty asked Grandfather if
he remembered when Harry Irum an was president.
Grandfather smiled and said he did, indeed, remember him.
in fact, Grandfather said, he orce spent part of a day with
President Truman.
Scotty could hardly believe his ears. His own grandfather
had ,,pent time with the President of the United States!
Pushing gently on the swing, Grandfather told Scotty about
the day he spent guarding Mr. Truman when the President
was on Wake island talking with a famous general.
Grandfather said he was a young soldier in the Linited
States Army at the time.
it v..a a big surprise to get such duty. Grandfather said. It
w ,as. something he would never forget And, as the years
passed, Grandfather read the newspapers every day to see
1. what President Truman was doing.
Grandfather said that one of the greatest thrigs Mr. Truman
: did was to establish the Berhn Airlift. And one of the hardest
things Mr. Truman did, Grandfather said, was to order the
'. explosion of the first atomic bomb.

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 Scotty that if the war had
continued millions of people around the world would have
died in the fighting and famine.
Scotty had never heard of the Berlin Airlirt, and he wasn't
sure what the atomic bomb was. But he didn't ask any more
questions. He knew he could learn about them in the books.
That afternoon, after Grandfather Edwards left,

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2008 A5


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY Jack Vamon
can remember the pain of the
car dragging against his leg,
the lacerations covering his
body and the sound of a man
desperately calling for him to
move out of the road, but he
could not see the car crashing
into him as he crossed County
Road 232 with his seeing-eye
dog in the summer of 1988.
The driver who hit Varnon
was one of the thousands of
Americans who are unaware of
the White Cane Law that protects
blind people in 37 states. As
the trial for the driver went to
court, the. prosecutor even had
to postpone the hearing since he
too was not educated on the law
and had to look further into it
before trying the woman.
The ordinance first passed in
Peoria, Illinois, in 1930, grants
blind pedestrians protection and
the right-of-way while carrying
a white cane with a red tip, but
the ignorance of most motorists
to this law has caused thousands
of traffic accidents and even
deaths in this country.
In recognition of this law and
to spread knowledge of the issue,
the Newberry City Commission
proclaimed October as White
Cane Awareness Month at the
commission meeting Monday
evening.
"I challenge you to step onthe
edge of Newberry Road, close'
your eyes and cross the street,"
Jack Varnon, vice president of
Alachua County Council of the
- Blind, said Monday. "You'll see
how spooky it is."
In the same way that many
citizens are unaware ofthe White
Cane Law, they often overlook
the challenges faced by blind
people in day-to-day life,
To raise awareness of, these
challenges and to educate
citizens on the issues blind,
people deal with, Varnon and the
Alachua County Council of the


Blind will hold the ninth annual
White Cane Safety Awareness
Demonstration Walk in the city
ofAlachua on Oct. 4 at 10 a.m.
The event will begin at
the old city hall parking lot
with participants gathering to
hold a "blind" walk alongside
U.S. Highway 441 for two'
blocks ending at the Boy Scout
hut. Participants will walk
blindfolded along the highway
to experience the sensations felt
by blind people as they move
through traffic. The event will
continue at the Boy Scout hut
where participants can practice
skills 'while blindfolded such
as unlocking a door, pouring
water into a glass and applying
a Band-Aid.
"People have told me they
didn't realize how scary it is
before doing the walk," Varmon
said.
The demonstration walk was
founded in Gainesville in 1997
by Carol Massey, president at
the time of Alachua County
Council of the Blind. When
Vamon became' president of
the group in 1998, he moved
the demonstration to Alachua
the following year with a huge
success.
Today, the demonstration
walk is repeated in both cities
but has transportation for blind
residents of .Gainesville to'
attend the Alachua event as well,
provided by the Alachua Police
Department.
With the involvement of The'
Alachua County Lions Sight
Foundation, Boy Scout Troop
88, City Commissioners and
residents, the demonstration has
traditionally proved to be a true
community involvement Vamon
said.
Other efforts by the Alachua
County Council of the Blind
include a recent push to put a
-question about the, White Cane
Law on every driving test and
to help people losing their vision
to have the courage to give up
their drivers' licenses before it


becomes dangerous for them to
be on the road.
"I want people to understand
that becoming blind is not the end
of the world," Vamon said. "You
learn how to make adjustments
and be willing to move away
from your comfort zones."

When I first wrote about this subject I
ihad to ask myself, "What next?"
And now I know.
As any southern female worth her
weight in salt knows, in the fall football
rules. At least it does in the "real" south.
And having grown up in the "real" south,
as defined as north of Orlando and south
.of Louisville, I have watched my share of
football I games in person, on television,
and by radio.


Previously, I believed'
I knew, a bit about football,
'at least enough to get by in

,recollection of football was
watching professional ball
:with my father .when Bear
Bryant was king, before Joe

;those pithy sayings .about
teamwork that coaches of

, I still watch games today, but things

Somewhere along the way, a new
kind of football beast has emerged on the
gridironn: Fantasy Football.
The phenomenon is still relatively

as the "Mayor's son." The' way this is.
presented is offensive on many levels.
My son, Patrick Barcia, Jr.,
who is a credit to the law
enforcement profession, has
earned the positions and
advancements in his career.
When he decided to apply to
APD two-plus years ago he
knew he would not be given
any preferential treatment.
But, he also expected that
he should not be penalized
because he is my son. I have
never used my public office
for personal gain for myself, Calderwoo
family members or friends.
City Manager Clovis Watson,' Jr.,
has dedicated 25-plus years of his life
in continuous service ,to the City of
Alachua. He has assembled the. most
professional and committed staff this
City has ever employed. The longevity
of their employment speaks volumes
about the management style of the City

Reason for blood curdling screams of

The point of football is to put points

to many people. To die-
hard Gator fans, Fantasy
Football might be the 1996
National Championship
game that had the Gators
trouncing the Seminoles. It
could also be the euphoria-
inducing, at least to the
Mississippi Bulldogs,
game a couple of seasons


ago when Mississippi
State pummeled the Gators in Starkville.
It could be last week's trouncing of the.
Tennessee Volunteers.
It could be.
But it's not.
Adults are playing, children areplaying
and it seems as though almost everyone is
either playing or knows someone who is
playing Fantasy Football.
Fantasy Leagues have burst on the
scene, and not only for football but for
baseball as well. Leagues can be public
or private where friends compete against
each other. The object is to "draft" players
and create a starting lineup that nets you
points based on how your players, not
team, perform in the actual game.
Fantasy Football participants call
themselves "owners", of their team of
actual players. The owner may have

To the readers of this letter, I hope to
dispel any misconceptions created by the
Sept. 18 APD articles. I
would be as doubtful
about these articles as
some published in the
past by the HSH where
an, individual has been
cast as a "victim." I
would also question the
motive behind the' bulk
of these articles as well
as the timing.
I assure you that
the trust placed in Mr.
mai Watson and' myself has
not t been -misplaced or
betrayed. We are truly your servants and
proud to serve the citizens of Alachua.

DeCoursey, has moved forward to serve
the community and we hope the media
shows them the respect they deserve.

other in any given game. How much
sense xloes that make? This unfortunate
mania also encourages channel flipping,
not between two stations, or three, but
as many as are carfling games at any
given time. Because now, the goal isn't
to fellow your team, the game, or even
the score. The object is to follow' your
player."
The conventional tally 'of actual
points scored by any given team is
secondary. The important score is the
points the owner's players make through
individual performance in their respective
games spread over many, many channels.
And "your man" may receive one point
for 20 passing yards, one point for 10
rushing yards, six points for a rushing
or receiving touchdown, four points for
a passing touchdown, three points for
a made field goal with bonuses for long
distance kicks.
What?
Exactly.
Confusing?
You bet.
.Sounds like a prescription for
psychosis.
Every dog has his day, and as Jim
Henson of Muppet fame said, "Nobody
creates a fad. Itjusthappens. People love
going along with the idea of a beautiful
pig. It's like a conspiracy."
Call me old fashioned, but while
Fantasy Football may not be an oinker or
a nightmare in the true sense of the word,
I am still ever hopeful that this dog of a
fad will run its course and go the way of
big hair with lots of hairspray, Garbage
Pail Kids and the Macarena.
And I still believe that Vince would

Heartfelt thanks from the'
family of Josh Byrd

I would like to take the time to
let the City ofAlachua knov w%%hat
a fine city we live in. As you all
know. we recently lost our son.
and in what we thought was our
darkest hour. a city came along by
the name ofAlachua and brought a
huge bright light into our life.
That light. we call hope. I
would like to explain to you
who this light was: Mayor Jean
Calderwood. City Manager Clovis
Watson. Jr., Alachua Police Chief
Joel DeCoursey. Detective Carrie
Lund, Officer Jesse Sandusky,
and Recreation Director Hal
Brady. who I think works twent-y-
* four seven for the children of our
community.
These wonderful people of our'
great City ofAlachua went above
and beyond. We had planned to
ha'e a memorial service for our
son who had volunteered at the
recreation center and .had been
a police explorer for four years.
He had also played Babe Ruth
Baseball and umptred with his
dad for the league. So it's fair to
say he knew a few people in our
community.
When we had called Detective
Lund and Hal Brady to tell them
L about Josh. and let them know
w\e would be having a memorial
service at our house, it's fair to sa\
things started happening left and
right, and without us even knowing
it Mr. Watson took time out of his
busy schedule and came to our
house and gave his condolences.
He continued to sav something that
shocked us both. He said, "Your
loss is our loss; he was part of our
cit, family Let us know w'%hat you
need and we will help you."
The City brought food to our
family, and did so many things for
us that it is hard to list all of them.
I could never thank them enough
for their kindness, generosity, and
caring, but most of all for making
our son part of their family) ,We
wlil never forget any of these ,
things from the smallest details to
our largest concerns.

it was truly moving and emotional.
Detective Lund did a fabulous job
putting together a slide show of
Josh's entire life with his favorite
song in the background. ,The
Alachua Police Department had a
shadow box made with his medals,
nbbons. badge and whistle. The
Confederate Marine Chaplain did
a eulogy and after the ser\ ices
hls Confederate brother did a
21-gun salute %with his gun in the
row along with them and his hat
hanging on it Afterwards they
presented us with the confederate
flag with his awards attached to it.
To conclude the'memorial service,
300 red, white and blue balloons

There are a couple of things
that %%e would like to say to our
cit'"s parents: Ahways tell your
children you love them everyday
and listen to their reply. Help then
to become involved in our city's
recreation department %whether
in sports or volunteering. This
can be a family affair, something
you can do together and have
fun Another thing is have your
children get interested in the Police
Explorer Program. This does not
mean they have to become police
officers. This program teaches
children discipline, fellowship.
and safety (fingerprinting children,
emergency evacuation plans,
etc.). life skills and many more
important qualities needed by
today 's youth. Without the Police
Explorers' behind the scens work
at the Fourth of July Celebration.
Halloween Festival. Fall Festival.
Christmas Parade, and Spring Arts
Show, the city would have had to
spend a lot of money to hire extra
help to do these functions
We would also like to say the
young boys and girls that we have
watched in the Explorers the last
four years with Josh have turned
into fine young men and women,
and we are %ery proud of all of
them.
Thank you,

most of the blame on Jemigan,

relayed information that I do not
think is quite accurate. I'm not
happy with the one-sidedness of
the- story, but the High Springs
Herald could not write the story
if the information had not been
brought to them."
The Herald received a
recount -of APD incidents in a
letter written by Reiter, who was
forced to resign because he threw
a trash can in a fit of rage.
Watson said he was going to
fire Reiter, but Reiter pleaded. for
Watson to allow him to resign so
he could find another job in the
law enforcement field.
E "Een though I make tough
decisions, I do ha% e compassion,"


Watson said, "So I honored that
request."
Watson said he was worried
that Reiter would not be able to
support his family during ihe job
transition, so he also gave Reiter
$20,000 to sustain him during the
period.
"That wasn't easy, because
those were resources we' could
have done other things with,"
Watson said. "Nowhere in that
article did be show graciousness-
for the $20,000. But even with
the statements [Reiter] has made
to: the Herald, .1 don't regret 'it,
and I would do it all overagain
because it was the right thing to
do." .. *
Watsonr also refuited the
statements made by Reiter about
the demotion of Lloyd and the
cancellation of the Officer of the
Year award, which was supposed
to go to the detective. ,
Watson said Jemigan had
approached him and told him that
Lloyd was not fit for the detective
position, but Watson disagreed
with Jernigan because Lloyd had
past experience, as a detective
with several other agencies.
Watson went against
Jernigan's wishes and promoted
Lloyd to detective, but the
detective position was cut due to
budget restraints.

claim Barcia worked hard for the
position, and Lloyd would have
been promoted to the position
again had he not left the city.
Reiter also claimed that Lloyd
had been told he would receive,
the Officer' of the Year award,
but Watson sent a letter 10 days
later stating the award would not
be given at all. Instead, a Chief
of Distinction, award %would be
given" to Jemigan because he was
retiring. ,
Watson said he told Jernigan
that he would be receiving. the
Chief of Distinction award. and
the APD could still give Lloyd an
Officer of the Year award.
"Those who know the chief,
who know. him well, know
he has a difficult, time making
tough decisions," Watson said.,
'Therefore, he would come to
me. and I would assist him with
the limited information I hae.,
-being here at City Hall and not at
the APD."
Calderwood's son, Patrick.
Barcia Jr., said he believes Police
Chief Joel DeCoursey Jr. has'
taken control of the APD and
moved it in the right direction.
"Under the new leadership,
we are moving in a,forward
momentum," Barcia said. "The
former administration is jlst that

just that former. But the -slanr
that the High Springs Het aid has

that." ..

was biased in its coverage of
the events, because they are the
mouthpiece of political activist
Charles Grapski, who has had
run-ins with Watson and other
city officials.
"I 'have observed the High,

Charlie Grapski, the ALA and
everybody in Alachua who wants,
to see this commission shut
down," he said.. "There's a thing
in journalism called ethics --when
you do what's right. The High

Burgess, Mayor Calderwood and

Vice-Mayor Bonnie .Burgess
said people should not believe
what they read in the Herald, and
Watson deserves more respect"
than he gqt.
"I am appalled at the articles
that were written in the High
Springs Herald," she said,
"and I knriow that they can'do
better. I know what kind of city

he's tactful and he handles the

Fight the gooc


In the Book of Romans,
6:1, Saint Paul asks, "Shall we
continue in sin, that grace may
abound?" It was a rhetorical
question, that he followed with
a presentation of the believer's
new life as a life pledged to
God through Christ and always
working to fulfill
that pledge. Then, '.
Paul asks a subtle
question, 'We
shouldn't continue. .
in sin, but what if we
just sin every once in
awhile, because we
can easily beforgiven
by a gracious God?'
This is an idea that
can work its way
into a Christian's THE VEN
thoughts because of LEA
the mercifulness of All Saint
God. Church,
But if we A part
think that sin and Christian
obedience can be Ch
played with, we are
grievously wrong. You see, we
have been given the power to
choose our master, and he is a
master, and our choice commits
us to a course and a consequence.
Consider these three elements:
A choice/- there are those
who teach that man's path can
be calculated and know what the
end result will be. But, mans'
will throws a wrench into these
calculations. To test this theory,
all we need to do is look at our
consciousness. "I know that I am
free; I have the power to choose;
and when I have decided to do
.something, I know that I could
have decided another way." The
history of the Fall is an example,
of this freedom. The truth of that'
part of history is that man had it
in his power either to obey God
or to gratify himself -he chose
self-gratification.
But the results, unlike the
choosing, were not temporary. In
the highest sense, freedom was


gone. There was still freedom of
choice among the various things
of self-gratification, but the
power to serve God, alone, was
gone. A great gulf was fixed
between man and God: totally
separated from God and without
the power to return, allowing
man to go from
-bad to worse.
Thankfully,
God came to
earth to redeem
Mankind. Our
weak will was
given new power,
allowing us to
place our choice
on God. The
freedom of true
M. JOHN E. duty is once more
SURE within our reach
s Anglican and it is possible
Gainesville. to climb out of the
sh of the depths, back to
v Episcopal God.
urch When we look
at man now, in
light of the redeeming truths
of the gospel of Christ, we
see that everyone can make a
choice between godliness and
ungodliness, good and bad,
or, in the words of St. Paul,
between obedience and sin.
From childhood on, good and
bad influences compete for the"
mastery-of the individual. God
and sin ask for our service, .
and we will "yield ourselves"
,to the one or the other. Either
way, our own choice. determines
our course, and the course to
which we commit works out its
inevitable consequence.
Let's look at the way our
choice commits us.
In one case, we become
-servants, or slaves, ofsin. In John
8:34-36, the Lord puts it in His
own words, "Verily, verily, Isay
unto you, Whosoever committeth
sin is the servant of sin. And the
servant abideth not in the house
for ever.: [but] the Son abideth


I fight

ever If the Son therefore shall
make you free, ye shall be free
indeed." The man who yields
to sin is held captive by a master
stronger than himself-but it is a
"free" man who has sold himself
to serve sin.
In the other case, we become
servants, or slaves, of obedience.
Here, the same law works, but
the result is the safeguard and
glory of our righteousness.
But isn't it still slavery? Well,
what is slavery? Service -is
slavery when it is forced or it's
degrading and lowly. However,
to obey God, and to serve him
with enthusiasm and joy is not
slavery. It is the highest type of
freedom. This is the secret of
liberty: the "spirit of a son"
Now, think about the
consequences that these two
courses lead to:
"Sin unto death." The
service of sin leads to this
inevitable end. Death-the
death of man's. best nature-is
the doom which the service of
sin ensures.
"Obedience unto
righteousness." This was how it
was to have been with the first
man; so it was with the second
("yet learned he obedience").:
And so with us; we are fighting
towards the crown which Paul
desired (Philippians 3:12; 2
Timothy 4:7, 8), "...the crown
of life." (Revelation 2:10)
These are the consequences
of the two courses, one or the
other, which each man, by his
free will, chooses. But, where
death is the wages of sin, eternal
life is God's free gift. And to
all of us; in words, of hope, ,the
voice from heaven says, "Fight
the good fight of faith; lay hold
on eternal life!"
