Grapski out of jail


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
GAINESVILLE Political activist
Charles Grapski has been released from jail
after pleading no contest to a lesser charge
than the ones Assistant State Attorney
Geoffreyr Fleck had originally filed.
After less than three hours of opening
statements and testimonies at his trial
on Thursday, Jan. 15, Grapski requested
that a misdemeanor disorderly conduct
charge replace thie trespassing and criminal
mischief charges against him.


Fleck agreed to
the request, and Judge
Thomas Jaworski
sentenced Grapski to
six months of probation
with three months served
in jail, leaving 89 days
of probation to serve. Grapski
Grapski must pay a $50
prosecution fee and refrain fiom drinking
alcohol during this period. Victim Mark
Kiester accepted a suggestion by Jaworski
to uphold a three-month restraining order


against Grapski.
Grapski, in an emotional response to
Kiester's request, said he would not bother
Kiester until he is ready to talk again.
"You don't have to order me to stay
away from Mark," a subdued Grapski said.
"I care about Mark very much, and he can
contact me when he is ready."
Kiester remained emotionless
throughout his testimony, invoking "I
cannot recall" repeatedly.

"The City of Hawthorne, like most of us in our
personal lives and businesses, is facing a deficit,"
Mayor Deloris Roberts said on behalf of the city
commission.
"Hawthorne is proud of our attempt to provide
our own police department to the citizens of
Hawthorne and is very saddened that this decision
had to be made."
HPD was. initially included in Hawthorne's
annual budget for 2008-09 at a cost of almost
$234,000, according to the Hawthorne city
website.
Due to a lack of funding, the commissioners
formed an advisory panel and hired a professional
consultant, Chip George from Nite Owl Software,
Inc. to make recommendations, for cutting
expenses.
George and the advisory panel concluded that
there was a shortfall of funding for the police
department between $163,875 and .$176,498,
Roberts said.

that long ago that Fugate was
kept on his toes growing up in
Alachua.
"My grandmother worked
at the post office, and she got
daily reports of my activities
from my teachers," he said. "In
a small town, there's never a
situation where somebody's not
watching what you're doing."
Fugate, now the Director


of the Florida Division of

said the small town
atmosphere, however,
helped him become a
successful team leader.
"I learned that there
wasn't much to gain from
beating around the bush.
People expect you to be
honest, and this helped me
gain integrity," he said.

Economy, World.


Series puts recreation


director's retireme


in question


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA With the
nation's economy slipping,
further into recession as each
day passes, local residents,
including city leaders, are facing
critical decisions including
those about retirement.
Alachua Recreation
Director Hal Brady announced
late last year that he would be
retiring soon after the 2010
Babe Ruth Softball World
Series if the city won the bid to
host the tournament. The city
has secured the host title, but
the continued downward spiral
of the economy has left Brady's
retirement decision in limbo.
Brady, who has worked
with the city for more than 25
years, said his main focus right
now is the World Series, which
is expected to bring thousands
of people to the area, so the real
retirement decision will have
to wait until the tournament is


h[ini


Brady
over.
"The World Series'ill
be a very big event for the
community, without a doubt,"
Brady said. "I won't talk abqut
my retirement until the Seres
is over. We've got a lo of
work to do to prepare ,f6rihe
tournament, but we'll see what
happens with economics.''

Kiester's description of
events often conflicted with
his own testimony, originally
stating Grapski merely knocked
inm his door and was kind, but
-iTi6esfer eventually revealed that
.irapski was banging on the.

Change of Heart
About eight days after
the Oct. 12 incident in which
,Grapski is accused of breaking
a' front window and entering
I.iester's house through a
0i.de door, Kiester made an
appointment to see the State
attorney, saying he was scared
tnd wanted to press charges.
However, on Dec. 15,
Kiester sent an e-mail to the
;State Attorney asking for the
:charges to be dropped.
.ii "I was in a panic when I first
spoke with the DA's office, and
'my thinking was compromised

bodily harm, and his thinking
was simply compromised by
alcohol and his medications."'
Prosecutor Geoffrey Fleck
asked what made Kiester
change his mind, questioning if
he had been swayed by friends
of Grapski.
Kiester responded, saying he
did not want his initial emotions
taobe involved, and he wanted to
take back what he said.
"I was a little freaked out
at the time," he said. "I did
speak with some people [who
urged him to drop the'charges],
many of these people I know,
many of these people care about
Charlie."
When Grapski's. defense
attorney, Stephen Bernstein,
'cross-examined Kiester, he
suggested Grapski had no reason
to believe he was not welcome
in the home,
"[Grapski] had a tacit,
unstated permission after an
eight year relationship with
Mark," Bernstein stated.
Kiester agreed with
Bernstein's evaluation that
Grapski may not have known he
was not welcome in the home.
"My house is open to all," he
said. "People can come and go
as they please. Charlie is always
welcome."
However, Kiester later
stated that Grapski was, in fact,


not welcome that night.
"At the time I didn't
want him there, and I didn't
understand his questions," he
said. "He was banging on the
door that's why I wanted him
to leave. I still would have had
him removed [had I understood
his questions], but I would have
helped him find his glasses."
The Missing Pieces
After all of the testimony
by officers and Kiester, one
might still have difficult piecing
together the true events of Oct.
12.
The few details that both the
prosecution and defense agreed
on were that Grapski and the
more than 10 people in Kiester's
home had been drinking alcohol
when Grapski left for home.
Grapski crashed his bicycle
soon after leaving the party, and
he lost his glasses so he could
not continue his trek home.
He returned to Kiester's
home and knocked on the door,
but the visitors would not let
him in.
Grapski became frustrated
because he needed help finding
his glasses,, so he banged on
the door and eventually entered,
through the side kitchen door.
However, neither party could
agree .,that Grapski had broken
the window, neither could agree,
who had made the 9-1-1 call,
and neither could agree whether

King Kong on DVD


By KEES BOER
Top, Entertainment Writer

If you want to sit back, relax
and watch a fun film, you might
want to check out the new King
Kong film on DVD, starring
Naomi Watts as Ann Darrow,
Adrien Brody as Jack Driscol,
and Jack Black as Carl Denham
in Peter Jackson's remake of
the' classic 1933 film.
Ann Darrow is a young
unemployed actress during the
great depression in New York
City. While searching for work,


she runs into Carl Denham, a
shady movie producer who is
looking to make a quick buck,
but has difficulty doing so.
Carl convinces Ann that she is
the perfect person to play the
female lead in a movie opposite
Bruce Baxter (Kyle Chandler).
The only catch is that she has to
leave that day on a ship to Skull
Island, a newly discovered
jungle island.
When they arrive, they
find the island far from a
typical Caribbean vacation
spot. It is an extraordinary lost


Ask Your Dentist Adel, Doug.a


Bonding

Q: What is bonding and what
is it used 'for?
A: Dental bonding, sometimes
called cosmetic bonding, is a
procedureyourdentistcanperform.
:The procedure is generally used
to restore or improve a patient's
smile. Bonding is used,. among
other things, to close gaps between
teeth, improve the appearance of
discolored teeth, change the shape
of teeth, repair cracked or chipped
teeth or protect a part of a tooth's
root that has been exposed by
gums receding.
The dentist applies a tooth-
colored resin material to teeth and
, uses a special light to bond the
material to the tooth. The dentist
may have to roughen the surface


jof a tooth a bit and apply a liquid
preparation. Bonding generally
does require anesthesia and,
after the initial decision-making
sessions, can be finished in one
visit.
Other more complicated
procedures for cosmetic or
restorative purposes can be
considerably more expensive
and time consuming. Porcelain
veneers, for instance, and crowns
have to be made in a dental lab
and then applied by the dentist in
the office. Talk with your dentist
about the many techniques and
materials available to improve
both the appearance and function
of your teeth.

world inhabited by a
treacherous tribe bent
on their destruction.
The. tribe captures
Darrow and sacrifices
her to King Kong, a
gorilla so large that it
is held at bay by a 100
foot wall. Of course,
it's love at first sight
for the gorilla, and
instead of harming her,
he is smitten by her
beauty.
Soon we find out
that not only does
a gorilla inhabit the
island. Skull Island
is also filled with
prehistoric animals
reminiscent of the Copyri!
film Jurassic Park, Resenrv
setting the stage for
several fights between
King Kong and these various
animals.
Enter greed, as Carl
Denham sees King Kong as
a great opportunity to make
a "boatload" of money. He
captures King Kong, taking
him to New York City, where
he shows off his captured beast.
It all goes well till King Kong
breaks loose and starts searching
the Big Apple for Darrow, and
the rest is well, history.
Peter Jackson (the Oscar
winning director of "The Lord
of the Rings" Trilogy) is the
director and producer of the
film. Jackson said, "It's a story
that had a profound personal
impact and shepherding its
return to the big screen has
been a dream come true.
Contributing to the DVD
afforded me the opportunity to
share this amazing experience
with audiences and highlight
the incredible achievements of
our exceptional cast and crew."
The DVD set is definitely
worth the money. The first disk

contains the film and a few
extras, such as the making of
the Volkswagen King Kong
commercial. The second disk
however is absolutely filled
with extras. It has over three
hours worth of extra footage
as to how the film was made,
introduced by Peter Jackson
himself.
The film might be a bit
scary for small children and is
appropriately rated PG- 13.
This DVD set would make
a great edition to any home

health inspection.
Kiwanis members would
bring blankets for the children
during the winter, and
they brought in a Santa for
Christmas.
However, because the
daycare, which has been around
since the early 70s, bases its
charges on what the parents
can afford, money became tight
and maintenance was kept to
a minimum. The City of High
Springs owns the building the
daycare is in, but the city does
not have much money to repair
the building either, said Director
Tammy Fleming.
"The city Will do some
maintenance on the building,
but not a lot," Fleming said.
"They just don't have any
money right now to do a lot of
repairs either."
Kiwanis Club members
realized ,they would not only
be helping children but also
the community as a whole by
revitalizing the daycare, which
offers parents an opportunity to
work rather than stay home and
watch the children every day.
Marilyn Bennett, who owns
Bennett's True Value in High
Springs and is a member of the
Kiwanis Club, said the members
decided there was a greater
need than holding parties at the
daycare, so they took on the
rehabilitation of the building.
"It was like a marriage made
in Heaven," she said. "Our
mission is to serve the children
of the world, and this was an
obvious need."
. The Kiwanis Club set out
to gather donations for the
rehabilitation, and Bennett said
they received a great response.


"As we started telling people,
in. the community about the nbed-
there, it brought awareness, land
people started to donate," she
said. "Community members and
businesses donated cabinets,
tile, paint, money, and just about
anything else you can think-
about," she said.
Bennettsaidtherehabilitation
is a work in progress, so she'siill
expects the daycare to receive '
furniture and other donations.
The local Kiwanis Club
has 25 members from Alacliua,
High Springs, Newberry and Ft.
White.
The club meets every
Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m.,
for one hour at Brown's Country.

The lnstituteof Biotechnology


at Santa Fe High

Guest Editorial by Bill Herschleb, Prin


We are pleased to announce the formal
establishment of The Institute of Biotechnology
at Santa Fe High School, A Program of Choice.
Members of our faculty and staffcollaborated
with the University of Florida, Santa Fe College,
and the Center of Excellence in Regenerative
Health Biotechnology to develop the first
courses in Biotechnology to be offered in the
State of Florida. During the development stage
of the curriculum and over the course of the last
two years, we have served as a resource for other
schools in the state who want to offer similar
opportunitieS-ior 6tudenfts at their schools.
Beginning in August 2007, and continuing
through this school year, we offered
biotechnology courses to students who were
zoned to our school. Recently we have been
granted permission to allow other students in
the district to attend our school to take part in
our program. Students who are not normally
zoned to our school may attend under the
district's- "choice" program. As with other
choice programs, transportation to and from the
school for those students not normally residing
within the school zone is the responsibility of
the student's family.


Our Biotechnology core is a

and
hisdfather when he was 15, so
Fugate turned to his high school
teachers to mentor him in his
teenage years.
"i?'I had four outstanding
teachers who helped out with
thetFuture Farmers of America
#iPA), which I was involved
wifli," he said. "They were
people I had a lot of respect for,
and I learned from watching
them carry out their day-to-day
duties."
..'-Fugate admits he wasn't
. a jock in high school, but he
said working with the FFA, on
tolyof living in a close-knit city
like Alachua, taught him about
sudbessful leadership.
After attending Santa Fe
College, Fugate became a
volunteer firefighter, and went
on to become a paramedic and
Lieutenant with Alachua County
Fire Rescue. From 1987 to 1997,
heegerved as the Alachua County
"Emergency Rescue Manager.
In May 1997, he was
appointed Chief of the Bureau
of; Preparedness and Response
with the Florida Division .of
Emergency Management.
Former governor Jeb Bush
appointed him in his current
position in 2001, and Governor
Christ reappointed him in 2007.

management when I was in fire

for disasters," he said.

likely this incident would have

completing the shift.
Following the investigation, DeCoursey
signed termination papers, but Sutton submitted a
resignation in lieu of termination. The resignation
was completed on Dec. 5.
In his resignation letter to. City Manager
Clovis Watson, Jr., Sutton wrote, "Thank you
for the opportunity you gave me nearly three
years ago to serve the community. My time with
the City of Alachua will never be forgotten and
will always be looked upon with the fondest of

by building teams instead
of agencies trying to solve
problems by themselves," he
said. ."We build teams out of
different agencies that don't
work with each other everyday,
but have to in certain situations
to be successful."
Fugate managed Florida's
response to four hurricanes in
2004 and 2005, 'but he said his
biggest challenge in the position
is convincing families to adopt a
disaster plan.
"We.have a lot more than
hurricanes in Florida," he said.
"We have forest fires, plane
crashes, all kinds of things
people need to prepare for."
Not every disaster will give
two or three day's preparation
time like a hurricane, Fugate
said.
"You hope you never need
a disaster plan, but when you
need one, you really need one,"
he said.
Fugate recommends that
families build a plan, which can
be found onwww.floridadisaster.
org.
"You fill out basic
information, and it helps you
build a very quick disaster plan,;


and answers questions like
'where do you go?' and 'what
items do you need?'" he said.
The plan is especially
important for people with
school-aged children, Fugate
said.
"People need to know where
their kids go in the case of an
emergency if they .can't get
home," he said.
Fugate uses the 9/11 attacks
as an example of the importance
of a plan.
"There was no 'cell phone
reception, so it would've helped
to know where to go for help in
that situation," he said.
Although Fugate works in
Tallahassee, he still has a home
in Gainesville.
"When I grew up in Alachua,
it was really' small," .he said.
"It's still considered small today
to other people, but it's grown a
lot since I've lived there."
Fugate said there are many
new buildings and business in
Alachua since he graduated
from high .school in 1977.
"It's nice to see the town has
grown quite a bit," he said. "And
it just keeps growing."

Check fraud is one of the

technology and advanced color
copying have made it easier than
ever for criminals and organized
gangs of criminals to deceive
innocent victims. Banks do not
like to reveal the scope of the
problem'but estimates range from
hundreds of millions to ten billion


dollars in losses annually.
Some of these crimes begin
with the simpilechemical alteration
of your existing check so that it
benefits the criminal. Genuine
checks can be obtained several
ways to start the scheme. Thieves
can take blank checks from a
check book left lying around in the
home, from vehicle burglaries, old
or cancelled checks in the garbage


or even of removal of new checks
right from your mailbox.
Generally, criminals will
target businesses. Payroll type"
checks seem to be the favorite,
although they. will not limit
themselves to just this. The UCC
(Uniform Commercial Code)
places responsibility for these
losses partially on the banks and
partially on the customer. There

He did it for us. God's love
for us prompted Him to do
this for us. This verse reveals
something equally amazing,
at least amazing to me.
Father God's love was
demonstrated and Jesuis came
and died for us while we were
still sinners. God did not look
down from heaven and find
righteousness on the earth. He
did not find man hungering for
Him. He saw us at our worst.
He saw us lost and separated
from Him in our sins. He saw
through .the sins and desired
the man.
He loves us so much that
He could not stay silent or
in active. He acted on our
behalf. He did what we could
not ever have done and still
cannot do. He demonstrates
love for us. He offered the
eternal and complete sacrifice.
He reached out to man while
we were completely and
totally lost. Nothing good
could be found in us before
redemption. Isaiah says that
"All of us have become like
one who is unclean, and all


our righteous acts are like
filthy rags; we all shrivel up
like a leaf, and like the wind
our sins sweep us away. No
one calls on your name or
strives to lay hold of you; for
you have hidden your face
from us and made us waste
away because of our sins"
(Isaiah 64:6-7). God did not
want filthy rags. He wanted us
and, because of His love and
sacrifice, those who come to
Him and surrender their lives


to Jesus find that the old has
gone and the new has come (2
Cor. 5;17).
This is the great work
of God; that sinners who
surrender to Jesus are
transformed by the power
of His Spirit, through, the
sacrifice of the Lamb, because
of the love of the Father.
What a wonderful truth. John
encourages us with these
words, "How great is the love
the Father has lavished on


us, that we should be called
children of God! And that is
what we are!" (1 John 3:1).
I oft ask "Why do you love
me so, Lord?" I am humbled
daily by His great love for
me.


I thank you-
and Holy Spirit.

Follow Captain Meriwether Lewis and Captain William
Clark on their historic 1804-1806 journey through the Louisiana
Territory through the eyes of children.
"Here They Come!" tells the personal stories of children the
explorers might have encountered in villages, high on council
bluffs, along the banks of the Missouri River and inside tepees
and lodges.











At last, one of the men made a great leap and captured the prairie
dog. All the other men cheered. Pretty Flower enjoyed watching
the men playing some silly white man's game.
The next morning, the two leaders of the Americans came to
talk with the village chiefs. Someone said their names were Lewis
and Clark. The two visitors carried a little wooden cage. Inside
the cage was the prairie dog the men had captured the day before.
Pretty Fower's father told her that the Americans were going to
take it back to their great warrior chief who lived in a village
called Washington.
When the Americans left the ne ydayPretty Plower w ~sorry
to see them go. She and Little Bird liked watching them every day..
As the boats sailed away, Little Bower stood on the little mound
behind her tepee and waved good-bye. Some of the men saw her
and waved back.

Pretty Fower held her little brother's hand. She felt very grown
up. Her mother had allowed her and Little Bird to go by themselves
to watch the Americans. The two children sat on a little mound
behind the tepee waiting to see what would happen next,
Ever since the strangers had come up the river, everyone in the
village was curious about them. The strangers didn't do things
like the people in'the village did. On this day, the men were again
doing strange things. Three of them stood beside a hole in the
prairie dog village. Most of the others were hauling water from.
the river. Back and forth they went, carrying water from the river,
.pouring it into the hole, and then goingback for-more water.
Once, Pretty Flower remembered, some of the boys in the village
made a game pouring a jar of water into one of the holes, but
she had never seen grown men playing such a game.
All afternoon Pretty Rower and Little Bird watched the water
carriers. The children nibbled on dried meat and fruits as they
watched the men going in and out of the prairie dog village.
Finally, as the sun was getting low, the strangers began yelling
and running through the prairie dog town. Little Bird jumped
to his feet, pointed to the men, and yelled, "Here they come!"
Then Pretty Flower realized that the men were chasing a prairie
dog. Shouting and stumbling over the ground, the men staggered
back and forth over the prairie dog village. Pretty Rower and her
brother laughed out loud as they watched the men acting like
unruly children.
The prairie dog was leading the men on a wild chase. Pretty
Rower could hear the little animal barking. It was having fun.
The silly men were stepping in prairie dog holes and running hard
into each other. Sometimes they fell to the ground in laughter.





A. Why do you think the men worked so hard to catch a prairie
dog? A prairie dog is a rodent. Define a rodent Make a list of,
six rodents and arrange the list in alphabetical order
B. Pretend the men were playing a game. Give the game a name.
One of the best known American Indian games is lacrosse.
Ask your physical education teacher to teach your class how
to play lacrosse.
