of time before officials were able to set up


mobile command units, and businesses such
as gas stations were left without credit card
or debit card connections.

HAWTHORNE The fate
of Hawthorne's fire department
and police protection was once
again discussed at a special
joint meeting held on Tuesday
evening, Feb. 3.
The Alachua County Board
of County Commissioners and
members. of the Hawthorne
City Commission were called
together at Hawthorne City
Hall ,to offer solutions to,
the municipality's, current
funding problems for the two


departments.
The Hawthorne *Mayor
Deloris Roberts. expressed a
desire for the-departments, but
she said the'quality and the cost
of them need to be considered.
One solution proposed
by the county commissioners
is for the city- to pay into a
municipal service taxing unit
(MSTU) to fund sheriff and
fire protection from the county.
MSTUs are typically used
by counties to tax residents
living in unincorporated areas.

"You learn so much doing something like
that," said Davis. "Even if you only spend -a
couple of days working, what you learn will stay
with you forever."'
"When you see all the trash that people just
threw on the ground and in the water, and how it
can affect the animals and make it an ugly place,
it just stays with you," said Eagle. "It makes you
want to keep cleaning up and keep informing
other people about it."
Informing others is a big part of what the
Newberry students have been doing since the
school year began. In addition to the cleanup,
the group created a both a coloring book and
storybook for elementary school students about
the dangers of trash on natural habitats. They've
established an online petition to promote iore
cleanup. They produced a video and public
service announcements. They even created a giant
piece of art out of the trash collected during the
cleanup, and have used that as the symbol of their
efforts throughout their school and community.
Besides the attention of their fellow students
and their neighbors, PRIDE has also earned some
national recognition. The group is one of just nine
high school teams to be recognized in the Lexus
Environmental Challenge in the water category.
They've each won $1,400 in scholarships, while
their school will receive $2,000 and their teacher
Cynthia Holland has won $1,000.

The students said their work in the community
:has shown them that people of all ages have a lot
to learn about protecting their environment.
"A.lot of people just don't know what's going
on," said Kronz. "I didn't really know much about
this stuff until Dr. Holland taught us. Now we're
much more aware, and we can expand on it."
Doolittle says environmental awareness must
start early, which is why the Newberry group spent
so .much time working to get the message out to
elementary school students in the community.
"When they see normal kids like us ini this
little town doing these amazing things, they.think
"Hey, I can do that one day," she said. "Seeing
people like us do it makes them want to learn and
make a difference."
Holland says that sense of empowerment
was the most important lesson her students have
learned through their projects., '
"Yes, they can learn the ,science behind
everything," she said. "But the fact that they can
say "I made a change" is what carries on into their
future and allows them to become much more
energetic and enthusiastic about helping people."
"People like us are the ones who will go on to
make a difference," said Bullard. "We have to try
to make more people aware so that they can get
involved."

Ask Your Dentist bDousM


The oral surgeon


Q: What's the difference
between a dentist and an oral
surgeon?
A: Within the broad 'field
of dentistry are a number of
specialties. Oral surgery is one
of them. The oral surgeon, also
known as a maxillofacial surgeon,
has completed a four-year surgical
residency at a hospital after his
four years of dental school. The
oral surgeon is trained to diagnose
and treat defects, injuries and
diseases of the mouth, jaw, teeth,
neck, gums and other soft tissues
in the head. The oral, surgeon also
can do reconstructive surgery on
jawbones, whether it's to correct
a bite or to repair damage done in
an accident;


The oral surgeon can perform
biopsies and remove tumors
in the head and neck area. The
most common reason for a visit
to an oral surgeon is removal of
impacted wisdom teeth, which
are the back molars. These
teeth sometimes emerge at an
angle or don't erupt fully. They
can become infected and quite
painful. This is. a situation in
which many dentists will refer a
patient to an oral surgeon. The oral
surgeon may use either a local or
general anesthesia to perform the
procedure. Most oral surgeons
limit their practice to their
specialty. Talk with your dentist
about this and other specialized.
areas of dental treatment.

Day, you probably deserve what you get.
The best advice is simply not to let the entirely
avoidable happen.
It's not too late to prevent a needless calamity
that could possibly be remembered as the beginning
of the end.
There is considerable wisdom in ensuring that
your sweetie has an enjoyable Valentine's Day,
as' opposed to a miserable one that won't soon be
forgotten. ,
Valentine's Day has been celebrated on Feb. 14th
for over 1,500 years, and for good reason. Who
wants to be the bonehead who decides this holiday is
past its prime and chooses to ignore it?
If you wisely accept the fact that Valentine's Day
is a darned good reason to express your love and
affection to your intended, then you will be buying
the card, the candy, the flowers, and maybe more.
And yes, life will be good for you... until the next'
occasion- when you will have to weigh the options
again, and make an educated decision, which should
help you live out your life in love, harmony and
tranquility.
If you do not, there are thousands of dating
service establishments nationwide who will gladly
help you find a, new truly beloved for a price.
Again with .the money thing!
Take the plunge, get the card, etc... and enjoy!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Students crack codes to success


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
As if straight from a James
Bond movie, area high school
.students are cracking codes to
win prizes and overcome the
financial black hole nicknamed
"college."
Students from Newberry
J- .High School (NHS), Hawthorne
SMiddle/High School and
(",CEastside High School (EHS)
"are participating in "Crack the
.'.'Codes...Challenge: Accepted!"
,",-",program, which was created to
equip Alachua County students,
parents and school guidance
., counselors with college
planning resources.
Each week in February,
students at the three high
schools are given a code for
.,' college success.
The students who crack
'the codes earn chances to win
prizes while' also learning
interesting facts about college.
For instance, students recently
Learned that college graduates
-..earn an average of $1 million
more during their careers than
high school graduates.
t Kalee Delaney, from NHS,
won the first of three individual
Prizes raffled off to students
who crack each week's code
,_3 successfully.
The prizes, which. were
donated, include two Ne-
-,Yo concert tickets, signed
Memorabilia from a member
;of the University of Florida
...:Championship Football Team
and a pair of Walt Disney World
2 passes.
In addition to individual


prizes, the school with the
most students and community
participation in the challenge
will win an in-school event
featuring a local radio DJ, a UF
comedy group and giveaways.
Eastside High School is
currently in the lead.
Melissa Nobles, a member
of the organization that created
this challenge, said the main
objective of the project is to
help. students see college as
ah important aspect of their
future while also planning
academically and financially
for the transition.
"This event is really
important to us because we
know ,so many parents and
students will be, able to leave
with a better understanding of
planning for college- especially
those that may not have thought
it to be attainable," Nobles
said.
The University of Florida
Bateman Team, consisting
of five undergraduate public
relations students, created the
program to promote the College
Bound Aid Program.
The Bateman Team is
taking part in the Bateman
Competition, which is a
national public relations case
study competition established
by the Public Relations Society
of America (PRSA) in 1?73."
The competition allows
college students from more
than 75 universities across the
nation to utilize their analytical
skills and judgment to create a
local campaign for a national
organization, the College
Bound Aid Program, which


was chosen by PRSA.
Organizers extended
an invitation to all Alachua
County public high schools to
participate in the challenge, but
only three high schools decided
to participate, Nobles said.
The program can only be
implemented in the month
of February due to the
competition's rules, but Nobles
said the team hopes the program
will continue at area schools
because college preparation is
so important.
In addition to the challenge,
the Bateman Team will also be
conducting Community Code
Crunch, which' is a college
planning night where students
and parents can meet a college
financial aid advisor, a financial
planning expert and. current
college students who have
used financial aid to fund their
education.
The panel discussion will
be followed by a question and
answer session, and the team
will provide refreshments and
prizes.,
Each family member who
Sttends the event will receive
o points toward their school's
overall challenge score.
The panel will be at
Eastside High School on
Tuesday, Feb. 17, it will be at
NHS on Thursday, Feb. 19 and
Hawthorne Middle/High on
Tuesday, Feb. 24. All of the
panels will begin at 6:30 p.m.

WATSON: Wo
Continuedfrom page Al

in
has been enough to take him out
of Merrillwood, what locals call
the "projects," and into leading
the City of Alachua for more
than 25 years.
"There's no excuse to fail, in
my opinion,'" Watson said. "We
were poor growing up, but in
spirits and in our hearts we were
rich."
His summer days in high
school started at dawn with
cropping tobacco and picking
squash until dark for $10 a day
to help pay for school clothes.
During the school year he
worked at an old packing shed
off County Road 235, packing
fruit to help his father who had
two jobs and his mother who
raised her six children.
To save money for' a college
education, Watson worked jobs
that are now a far cry from
his current position as the .top
administrator of the second
largest city in Alachua County.
After graduating from high
school in 1976, Watson stayed
in his hometown of Alachua to
work at the Copeland Sausage
Company. He even worked on
the "hog hair crew," scraping
hair off.hogs going to slaughter
and. dumping the debris in
barrels.
"Those things really teach
you discipline," Watson said.
"Working in the sun all day is
tough."
And just as .shaving hogs
and.canning sausages were not
exactly his life's plans, Watson
has ended up at the top of local
government by chance as w ell.
After joining the police
academy in, 1983. Watson
continued to resist barriers as
he soared through the ranks and'
was crowned ,with an array of
"firsts."
Watson became the first
African-American police
sergeant in Alachua and later
hdld the same distinction as
Deputy Chief of Police. Over
19 years on the police force,


atson to request to take part

Obama's stimulus plan


Watson earned the community's
trust, which would help guide
his path as he transitioned from
the police department to City
Hall.
"He's always been the same,
sensible guy," said Charles
Goston, a childhood friend of
Watson. "He believes in what's
right, no matter what side of the
road it falls. If it's not right, he's
not for it."
As .an individual who
demands the best out of people,
he requires no less of himself
This trust from the community
put Watson at the front of the
line when the city went through
five city managers within two
years and was left searching for,
a stable leader.
While Watson said the city
manager position was.not part
of the plan early on,'fter the
city and Ltb i1on saw
the progret~ '*during
his time as interim manager, he
agreed to stay on full time.
"I thought it was a wonderful
opportunity from growing
up in the community as a
disadvantaged youth'to grow to
lead the community," Watson
said. "I couldn't walk away
from that opportunity."
Since his appointment as
City Manager in 2002, Watson
has been instrumental in helping
increase the tax base in Alachua
from $12 million to $40 million,
easing tax burdens andbuilding a
thriving community by bringing
in corporate business. partners
that created over a thousand new
jobs. fueling the local economy.
Under his leadership, a variety of
initiatives have come to fruition,
including revamping the city's
comprehensive plan as well as
:land development regulations,
an expansion of wastewater-
facilities to accommodate
growth, fulfillment 'of a long
awaited community center for
seniors, and the creation of,
SSanta Fe College's $6:8 million
Charles R. and Nancy V. Perry


Alachua Corporate Training
Center for biotechnology, which
is scheduled to open in August.
Watson has dedicated much
ofhis life to the public, but he has
always kept one eye on personal
growth and accomplishment
as well. After completing
the certificate program in law
enforcement in 1984, Watson
went on to receive an Associate
of Science degree in Criminal'
Justice Technology; a Bachelor
of Arts, Interdisciplinary,
Human Services; Master of
Arts, Interdisciplinary, Public
Administration; a Master of
Business Administration, and
is currently working on his
doctorate in Public Policy and
Administration.
Watson said he is now
looking to take part in the
economic stimulus plan
proffered by one of his greatest
inspirations, President Barack
Obama. With a stimulus request
.of $136 million, Watson plans to
improve'the wastewater facility,
roads, and infrastructure and
build more interchanges to ease
traffic in the city.
"I am hopeful for this,"
Watson said. "Never ever, ever,
ever be hopeless, I don't believe
in it. If the wall is there, go over
it. We're not trying to grow to
become Gainesville. We just
want to keep people home by
keeping jobs here."
, Throughout his life, Watson
has worked to improve himself
and help his community; he
now plans to reach the next step
of serving in state or national
government. He has previously
announced his departure for
November 2010 to/reach his
longtime goal of running for
public office.
"I'd like to serve at a wider
capacity,, but I will never
abandon Alachua," .Watson
said. "Alachua 'is home, and
I'll always be here for the city
that needs me. Even if I were
successful in a state or national
bid, my home will always be
here in Alachua."
In the meantime, this
workhorse is even,. assisting
the City pf tawrthorne in their
search tfor a 'new city manager
and helping build a framework
for the city's stability. But as
Watson said, his loyalty will
always be to Alachua.

Commission pushes charter


amendments
By SARA POWELL
Today Reporter

ALACHUA- The Alachua City Commission voted
on Monday to approve eight proposed amendments to
the City of Alachua Charter, allowing them to move
on to a second public hearing on Feb. 23 and a final
reading on March 9.
City Manager Clovis Watson, Jr. prepared the
amendments with the help of the commission-appointed
Charter Review Advisory Board, which was formed
in December 2008. The eight amendments will be
recommended for inclusion on the April election ballot.
After the election, there will be a systematic review of
the charter in its entirety according to Watson.
The first amendment, which passed 3-1, proposed
creating a specified elected seat for the office of mayor.
The commission currently rotates who holds the
position of mayor.
All of the commissioners present voted to pass the
legislation except Gib Coerper.
"Personally, I'm hot in favor of that," he said. "I
think the system we have in place works."
Mayor Jean Calderwood said she agreed with the
proposed amendment because the responsibilities of
the position would remain the same. .
"It's the opportunity for the voters to decide if we're
ready for that type of government," she said.
The rest of the amendments passed 4-0, but a few
raised concerns from citizens.
The third amendment provides that the city
commission meetings be at times.and places prescribed
by law and City Commission rules.
"You are cutting off access to the residents," said
Tamara Robbins, a former commissioner.
Watson said the intent of the commission is to
, keep meeting regularly, but to give the commission
the ability to reschedule certain meetings in case of
unforeseen circumstances.
The fourth proposed amendment, which requires
the City Manager to be a resident of the city within
six months of appointment .unless the commission
agrees in writing to allow them to reside outside the
city limits, also caused confusion. Watson said the
amendment was not intended to make non-citizens the
city manager, but to allow commissioners to weigh
each circumstance.
The way it stands now, someone may live within
mere feet of the city and not be eligible to be hired
by the commission as city manager unless he or she
agrees to move within six months, he said.
#- # #


Amendments proposed

for Alachua's Charter
Amendment 1: The commission
currently selects among themselves who will
hold the position of mayor. With the proposed ,
change, 'the electorate would vote for the r
mayor.
Amendment 2: The amendment would C' -
waive the provision that currently prohibits .
a former elected city official to hold any .,. '
compensated appointed office or become
a city employee until one year after the .
expiration of the term of office.
Amendment 3: The city commission
meetings currently meet the first and third
Monday of each month: the proposal would
keep the meetings regular, but give the
commissioners the autonomy to change
dates of meetings in the event of unforeseen
c trcumstances.
Amendment 4: The charter currently
requires the city manager to be a resident
within six months of appointment by the
commission; the amendment would allow the
commission to agree in writing to allow the j^.
city manager to reside outside of city limits.
Amendment 5: Provides that a symbol
or any other method prescribed by law,
shall be used to vote either for or against an
amendment to the charter.
Amendment 6: Would allow the city
commission to appoint a canvassing board for
city elections, whose duties, responsibilities
and procedures shall be as set by applicable
law and city ordinances.
Amendment 7: Provides that the
Planning and Zoning Board meetings shall be
at times and places as prescribed by law and
as may be directed by the city commission
Amendment 8: Currently, the charter .
provides that the Plannrg and Zoning Board :
% ill prepare plans and maps for the systematic
future development and betterment of the
city. The amendment would stipulate that
The Planning and Zoning Board will act in
accordance with applicable law and directed '
by the city commission.

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2009




A reasonable, holy and living sacrifice


A 16th Centuty Puritan
pastor once called his flock
'deformed monsters'. He told
them that because of their sin,
they were little better than
devils with their head and heart
where 'their feet
should be, and with
feet kicking against
heaven. What could
this preacher hope
to accomplish with
this accusation of his
flock? His answer
was, "..:.that I may
cure the ruinous
mistake of some who
think that. they are -
converted when they THE VEN
are not." LEA
This technique All Saint
has been used over Church,
and over through A parsi
Christian
the years. Not all Ch
ministers resort
to calling their
parishioners 'monsters' but the
general strategy is the same;
they think that those who have
come to worship, must be told
weekly that their salvation hangs
in the balance with their every.
sinful thought, word, or action.
Such preaching is intended to
be good, but the consequences
of it are the opposite. Actually,
such methods are contrary to
the teaching of Holy Scripture. :
Many in Atiericati-
Christianity think that God's
anger must be calmed by some
humiliating act of penance
to persuade God to turn from
his wrath and this affects how
Christians think, act, arind pray.


It's not unusual for Baptized,
Confirmed, Communing,
Sunday-School attending
church members to believe that
every time they sin, they're
set outside of the kingdom of
heaven. There
are preachers
who are good at
using the double-
edged sword of
Threat and guilt to
p persuade people
: that they are in
danger of losing
their salvation.
The solution
to this is stated.
4. JOHN E. by Saint Paul ,
SURE "I bese'ch
s Anglican you therefore,
Gainesville. brethren, by the
sh of the mercies of God..."

SEpiscopal (Romans, Chapter
urch H 12)".'u I' cautions
: i'l5fhItt 31hristians in
Rome that bfhe mercy of God,
to recognize' that they're' no
longer sinners, alienated from
the life of God, but that they are
the children of God, purchased
.by the Blood of Jesus Christ.
Saint' Paul's appeal doesn't
have less force just because
there aren't any threats or
accusations-it's directed to the
'heart of those who are in a right
relationship with God.
He does remind the Roman
Christians that they are. to live
',in a manner consistent with
their confession of Faith. This
is quite different from treating
them as if their Christianity
depends bn' living perfectly


today or being tossed out of
the Kingdom tomorrow. Paul
requires them to live up to
their confession but he doesn't
challenge whether they are
saints or not if they've sinned
since they first believed.
St. Paul begins by preaching
about the conduct of the
body. "Present your bodies a
living sacrifice. Moralistic,
preaching is very popular, live,
this way or that anid you'll be
saved, but that isn't what Paul is
preaching. He sees a problem,
because back then, the religious
thought was that there wasn't a
relationship between the body
and soul,, so anything done in:
and with the body was irrelevant
in the larger scheme of eternity.
St. Paul challenges that belief
by reminding the Christians of
Rome that what is done in the
body has very much to do with
eternity.
Christians must present
their bodies to God as a living
sacrifice. This, ritualistic.
Sacrificial language sounds
like animal sacrifices in the
Old Testament. However, St.
Paul makes a 'powerful shift
in the argument by telling
the Christians' to present their
bodies as a living sacrifice.
His meaning is twofold; first,
the death of the sacrifice was
accomplished by Christ and so
in His resurrection all believers
have a living body to offer-
one that is to be used as an
instrument of righteousness
derived from the life of Jesus
Christ dwelling within them.


Secondly, the sacrifice is a daily
sacrifice, a pattern of.life, not a
one-time death.
The sacrificial obligation
is synonymous with Christian
life. We're called to make a
daily sacrifice of ourselves and
this sacrifice is described as our
reasonable service. TheApostles
words suggest a permanent state
of relationship with God, but
with obligations. We fulfill a
calling by presenting God with
our reasonable service and this
puts us in constant relationship
with Him. We have permanency


with God based on a lifetime of
sacrifice and service.
So, what is a reasonable
service? It is rational; it
includes the mind, reason,
and intellect. It is a powerful
reminder that our Christian life
is not something mechanical
and automatic. The reasonable
service that St. Paul reminds the
Church in Roman to observe
is the service to God which
is made, moment by moment
with our full attention and
with unwavering and absolute
conviction of heart, soul, and


mind.
I encourage you to make
your life a living, sacrifice to
God. Your adoption in Christ
is secure by His sacrifice, you
are a child of God by His grace
and by Faith, and yet we are
reminded in Romans Ch. 12
that we now must live up to our
confession and offer a spiritual.
service to God out of love for'
what He has given us in His .Son,
Jesus Christ.

SunState Feder

Partners in
SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua County Today
are partnering to bring you "Here They Come." .The purpose of
this campaign is to get young people reading.: Alachua County
Today will publish a 12-chapter serialized short story, "Here They
Come" 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.


Red Earth urged his pony to move faster. The sun was.high and
Red Earth's stomach begged for food. Soon there would be plenty
to eat. His father was takflA meat, berries and roots to some men
traveling through the area. Red Earth had never seen such men
as these.. He heard they were almost white. These strangers had
come up river in big boats. But when they came to the place
where the water falls, they had to irag their boats over land.
At last, Red Earth and his father found the strangers. The white.
men had just pushed onie of their boats over the top of a steep hill.
Slipping off his horse, Red Earth began taking food off the pack
horse. "Here they come," his father said as the strangers approached.
Red Earth had never seen anyone eat like the boatmen. With long
knives, they cut big pieces of meat. They didn't eat the vegetables,
they only wanted meat.
As the men ate, Red Earth noticed that one was not like the others.
His arms and legs and even his backhand face were black. The
black man talked very much and made the other men laugh.
Red Earth liked this man who smiled and laughed so much.
When the men finally had enough to eat, they lay down to rest
before going back to work pushing their big boats. While the men
rested, their leader, a man called Captain Meriwether Lewis, spread
a blanket on the ground. On the blanket he put two knives, a bolt
of cloth, some beads and two metal pots as a trade for the food.
Red Earth had always wanted a knife. All he had was a sharp stick.
He would do almost anything for one. Kneeling beside the blanket,
Red Earth touched one of the knives. He had never seen anything
so beautiful. The smooth blade reflected the sun.

When the trade was completed, Red Earth's father gathered up
his goods and put them on the pack horse. Then the boy and his
father mounted their horses and started to ride away. But suddenly
the black man grabbed the rope on Red Earth's pony. Red Earth
was afraid the boat men were going to harm him and his father.
But before Red Earth could do anything, the black man handed
the boy a knife. It wasn't as shiny and bright as the ones his father
had gotten, but it was strong and made of metal. It was the perfect
.knife for a 10-year-old boy.
Red Earth did not know how to say thank you. The only thing
he had to give in return was a smile so that is what he gave his
new friend. The black man seemed pleased. He waved his hand
and smiled back as Red Earth and his father rode away.
