Newberry residents angry over electric rates


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY Confusion
and electricity filled the air at
the Newberry City Commission


meeting at City Hall
on Monday night
when. residents
gathered to protest
skyrocketing power
costs.


Re.s id en t s
throughout the
city noticed their
-electric bills


quickly rising, and they also noticed
a fuel adjustment charge on their


bills that has reached 50 percent of
their total charges.
Commissioners and residents
were equally confused about the
origin of the fuel adjustment charge,
wondering why the fee has risen
as fuel costs have
S ._, plummeted.


The fuel
adjustment charge
was finally pinned'
down as originating
from the city
charter, which offers
a maximum base,
rate of 7.3 cents per


kilowatt of electricity.
However, the Florida Municipal


Power Agency (FMPA), which
supplies Newberry's electricity,
charges above that rate, so the city
charges the fuel adjustment rate to
make up the difference.
An FMPA official attended the
meeting to clarify the confusion,
but his answers were not what the
customers wanted to hear.
Thomas Reedy, assistant general
manager of power resources, said
the company invested in fuel last
year when natural gas prices were
expected to be almost $17 per
, million BTU, but the 'prices soon
fell to about $4 per million BTU,

Newberry residents packed City Hall on Monday night during
the City Commission meeting to protest disproportionate
electric bill increases. A spokesman for Florida Municipal
Power Agency (FMPA) told residents that the prices will
stay high until September because the company bought
fuel while prices were higher.


Standing for eighty years, knocked down in hours


Here today, gone tomorrow

Demolition crews knock down an 80-year-
old home at 13805 NW 148th Place on
Wednesday.
The three-bedroom house was owned by
First United Methodist Church of Alachua,
but the church decided the building was too
much of a liability and would cost too much
to bring up to city codes. The church plans
to use the lot for future expansion, including
jrdrking and other buildings.
The contractor for the site, Clint Davis,
received a permit for the demolition on March
2. Built in 1929, the home stood for several
decades but took just hours to demolish. fNyA, i- -r..

Alachua store


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Wal-
Mart officials have been
hushed about their plans 'for
a city of Alachua location,
leading some to question
if the retailer is second-
guessing the site, but the
company recently made
contact with city officials
to hammer out design
details, officials said.
City Manager Clovis
Watson, Jr., met with an
architect representing Wal-
Mart about two weeks ago
to discuss landscaping and
design requirements for
the store planned for 30
acres behind McDonald's
on U.S. Highway 441.
"They did talk to us
and advised us that they
are still interested in our
community," Watson said.
"'Now we are just waiting
on an application."
Watson said he is being
specific with Wal-Mart
about the building's facade
so it will match the design
of that area of the city.
"We want the store
to be consistent with the


facade we have in the city
of Alachua," Watson said.
"I let them know where we
are referencing the look,
such as Main Street, and
they seemed willing to
work with us on that."
Wal-Mart officials
declined to go into
specifics about the project,
instead saying they are still
working on applications
with the city.
"We continue to work
through the approval
process with the city," said
Wal-Mart spokeswoman
Cindi Marsiglio. "I don't
have any more details
on the timeline of that
particular project."
Wal-Mart officials
said last summer that
they would submit a
building application to
the city soon after they
received permits from the
Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT),
but the company received
the permits in September
and has yet to apply.
"We're hopeful .that

BRYAN BOUKARI/Alachua County Today
Alachua resident Jerry Smith donated a new

Development to generate more

than 14,000 trips ddily


[Wal-Mart] 'is almost
through this process and
will be moving forward
with the project as soon as
we get the permits from
FDOT," former Wal-Mart
spokeswoman Quenta
Vettel said in May 2008.
.Once Wal-Mart receives
a building permit from the
city, the company must give
the FDOT a performance
bond, which will guarantee
the quality of the road work
required for construction.
The company has
several other criteria to
meet with the city, so
construction is not likely
to begin for several months
after the application is
submitted.

Alachua charter amendments deserve careful consideration

Guest Editorial by Duane Helle, Alachua resident


On April 14 the citizens of
Alachua will be voting on eight City
Charter amendments. Considering
that this document defies how the
city operates I think it is important that
the voters give considerable thought
to these changes. I was a member
of the committee assigned to bring'
these changes to the Commission and
would like to shed some light on the
reasoning behind these changes and
some thoughts I have about them. I
need to make clear that the following
comments are mine and reflect my,
thoughts on the changes. I in no
way intend my remarks to be those
of the committee either officially, or
unofficially. It is my hope that 'my
comments will spark a conversation
land biale about thdse important
changes,
I wouldd like to present these in
reverse order of their appearance
on the ballot because to me they
are less controversial than those at
the beginning and can be dealt with
by the same basic philosophy. This
philosophy consists of two basic
concepts.
One is that 'the City's charter
is like its condritution, its ,founding
document, the"basis for itg'aLthorit).
Therefore it should be concise and
eas' to read. It should not have any
extraneous information that could be
better handled by ordinance which h
can be ,changed much more easily
should it become necessary.
Second, it should #ive the


commission flexibility and
not unnecessarily-. restrict the
commission's ability to do the
,people's work. At the, same time it
also assigns culpability to the elected
officials so that the\ -
are held directly .
responsible for their
decisions.
Number eight :
on the ballot, article
IX Planning and
Zoning follows this ,
general philosophy. ;
It removes language ..
enumerating
responsibilities ofthe
P and Z and simple ,
says their duties are
in. accordance with 9
the lav. and what
the Commission Duane H
dictates.
Number 7 on the
ballot frees up the meeting schedule
of the Planning and Zoning board to
meet as directed by law or the City
Commission. ,. .
Number 6 on the ballot actually
adds language in order to niake it
clear that the City can appoint a
canvassing board and handle its own
elections.
Number 5 on the ballot simply
updates the appearance'of the bai lot to
let it conform %ith whatever method
of 'oting we are usqg at the time.
Number 4 on the ballot says that
the city manager must ,be a resident


7e


of the city within six months of
appointment unless the Commission
agrees in writing to allow him to
live outside the city. This actually
tightens up the language because
the present charter says
the manager must -be
a resident of the. city
OR STATE within six
months. It also allows
,the commission some
latitude if the appointee.
i is a life long resident
and has significant ties
to the community but
lives just outside the
cit boundary. This falls
into the philosophy of
the two principles stated.
above.
Number 3 on
ile the ballot allows the
Commission more
control of their meeting
schedule. This also falls .into the
philosophy of the two principles
stated abo e.
Number 2 on the'ballot allows the
Commission to %%ai% e the requirement
that a City Commissioner must wait
one) ear to take any paid position with
the City. The one year prohibition was
recommended bN the model Charter
\%e looked at because of the very real
possibility of conflict of interest. The
group that promulgates the model
charter has been looking at this issue
for o\ er one hundred years.
Voting for this amendment would


fall under the two principles stated,
above but I think it needs more
consideration.
Let's say that a commissioner
wants to take a position for which
it could reasonably be said that he/!
she is well suited. This would simply
give the commissioner the ability to
apply to the city manager who would
,actually do the hiring. Do we really
think the manager would be able to
hire even someone more qualified for
the position?
What if the commissioner wanted
to be the city manager? Would it be
reasonable, to think that the rest of
the commissioners would really
vote against that? Would they even
conduct a search for anyone else?
Finally, if the voters deny this
change, would we be denying the city
the ability/to have a qualified person
with wide ranging knowledge and,
dedication to the city?
This is the kind'of discussion that
we should be having on a change this
important.
Number I on the ballot changes
the charter to make one commission
seat an. elected mayor.
The arguments for the change
include giving the position a higher
visibility and continuity that we don't
have at this point when the mayor can
change from year to year. It is perhaps
time for Alachua to take this step up.
The mayor, with this change, would
have no more power, but it would
give the city a more identifiable face.


The commission could alleviate
this to some extent by simply keeping'
the same person as mayor for at least
two years or longer if that person
was reelected. This does result in
the commission picking the mayor
instead of the voters directly.
One problem with electing the
mayor might be that citizens who
would like to be a commissioner
probably would not want to start out
as mayor. On the other hand you may
end up with the least experienced
member of the commission being the
mayor.
The more qualified candidates
might be sitting commissioners. The
problem-is that person would have to
resign their seat to run. That would in
turn leave an empty seat that would
have to be filled.
It is also possible. that once
someone was elected mayor, they
could always use the experience
issue to stay in power indefinitely.
Would term limits be something to
'consider for .the mayor as well as
other commissioners?
These issues need to be brought
to, the attention of' the people and
discussed. Make no mistake, the
decisions made by these five people
have more direct effect on your lives
than those made in Washington.
I hope I have' started the
conversation. I can be reached at
dhelle2001@yahoo,.com and I would
be willing to meet with anyone or
group to discuss these issues.

which is the current cost.
Because the company bought the
fuel at the higher cost, the 15 cities that
rely on the FMPA to supply electricity
have been feeling the pinch.
"It doesn't look so good right now,"
Reedy said. "It was a bad idea there's
no doubt about it."
Reedy said although there. is
nothing he can do about the high costs
right now, the company has made some
changes to prevent a future repeat.
The FMPA has shortened its future
buying program from 36 months to 24
months, and the company has been
looking to refinance some of its debt.
However, these options are not
quick fixes, and Reedy said Newberry
will see the high electric costs until at
least September.
Commissioners and meeting
attendees were not pleased by Reedy's
response, saying city residents should
not be forced to pay the price for
FMPA's mistakes.
"Is FMPA willing to share the pain,
or are you going to go back to Orlando
and say 'That's your problem.'?" said
Commissioner Bill Conrad.
Commissioner Joe Hoffman
grilled Reedy about options to lessen
the pain on the city. He asked for the'

home. According to Iwata,
the program will apply for
State Housing Initiative
Partnership grants and will
also depend on contributions
from local businesses,
state contributions, church
fundraisers and the
mortgage investment of the
homeowner.
Possible candidates
for the remaining lot can
be recommended by the
community or by the
candidate themselves.
Requirements to qualify
for a Habitat for Humanity
home is that the candidate
must have lived in Alachua
County for at least a year
and has a steady job, their
debts have to be under 40
percent of their income, and
they must volunteer 200
hours of service on other
properties and 200 hours on
their own.

considered to lower the burden on the
customers.
Reedy mentioned that the next
FMPA board meeting will be March
26 in Orlando, and area residents
are welcome to go to the meeting to
,participate in discussions between
representatives from each city.
"All of our cities are hurting," he
said. "Everyone's in the same boat."
Commissioners offered several
ideas to help city residents. who are
struggling to pay their bills.
The first option city officials are
considering is to exit the contract with
FMPA. However, this option would
-cost,the city about $23 million.
City Attorney, Scott Walker said
Newberry has the option to opt out, but
the city would risk losing its. bonds,
because it is essentially one of 15
owners of FMPA.
"You can get out of it, but we are an
owner in a business now, which is the
FMPA," Walker said. "It's like a cruise
ship. You're out there in the ocean and
you can't get back to shore for another
three months. We can't just jump ship.
We have fo'ride out the storm."
Another option city officials are
considering is tod use .city funds to
cover about $40,000 in electricity,


which would bring rates back to about
four months ago. The city has covered
about $109,000 in electricity over the
past eight months.
City officials may also infuse
$10,000 into a hardship committee
that was recently established to help.
struggling residents pay their bills,
but Commissioner Alena Lawson
said $10,000 is not enough to make a
substantial difference, so she wants a
higher infusion if the city employs that
option.
A citizen oversight committee may
also be created to help set rates and
have detailed information for other
residents about the electric bills.
Mayor John Glanzer said whatever
the city does, one of the. most
reasonable options is to be flexible so
residents can pay their bills a few days
late if necessary.
"Right now, if the bill is due on the
16th and it isn't paid on the 16th, lights
are off on the 17th," Glanzer said. "We
need to be flexible and give residents
a chance to pay their bills. We need to
give them some light at the end of the
tunnel."

payment stops them," Iwata
said. "Instead of giving
us their money, they give
us their time. If they put
in labor instead of down
payments, then we are
able to ask them to pay a
mortgage back, but it is a
very reasonable mortgage."
Habitat for Humanity
has made it possible for
Wesley and many others in
Alachua County over the 22
years it has been building in
the area to get a home with
only a $70,000 mortgage.
Mortgages through the
program stay low because
there is no interest in profit
and the volunteer base
makes for no building
costs.
"I just thank God
everyday," Wesley said.
"It's a second chance to get
a home for my kids. Every
night I just thank Jesus for
this."

last week, the Hawthorne


Wayor Roberts anxious for relief


City Commission voted to
give Shryock a severance
package of $12,300, and
the city will not be going to
court about the termination,
which passed with a 4-1
Commission vote.
Commissioners alleged
that Shryock expended
more money than the city
had in revenues in the
fiscal year 2007-2008;
led the city into taking on
police and fire departments
that it could not afford,
which may lead the city
into deficit spending; and
he also allegedly did not


keep business hours at City
Hall and did not use good
judgment in his outside
activities, according to a
letter from Roberts to city
commissioners.
Roberts also claimed
misfeasance, the wrongful
performance of a normally
lawful act, and she
requested reimbursement
by the court for money
inappropriately .expended
by Shryock. Roberts also
alleged that Shryock failed
to back up records on the
city's laptop and failed to
keep appointments with a
potential' pharmaceutical
business interested in
locating in Hawthorne.
Since Shryock's
termination, Roberts has
been left fielding questions
and handling city business,
po she said she is ready to
get some relief.
"We're not going to
hammer this out anymore
than we have to," she said.
"It's been a difficult couple
of months for Hawthorne,
but we are ready to move
, forward."

APD will also use cart


parking at events such as
the July 4 celebration,
Alachua Police
Department (APD)
Detective 'Carrie Lund said
the old cart was not reliable,
but the new donation has
more power and is more
rugged.
"These kids are working
15 hours in the sun during
events such as the fourth
of July," Lund said. "They
deserve something that-
will be reliable and easy to
use." ,.
Although the cart was
given specifically for the
Police Explorers, Lund


said APD will also make
use of the fuel-efficient and
compact vehicle during
certain events.
Police will be able
to carry people during
emergencies, and the cart
can maneuver through
places that typical police
vehicles can't reach, she
said.
"We usually have at
least one emergency during
the July 4 celebration, so we
are definitely excitedto have
this ,faster transportation
readily accessible now," she
said. "This donation means
a lot to not only the Police


Explorers, but the entire
police department."
Smith, who has lived
in Alachua for 38 years,
said he has. seen how much
APD does for the city, so he
wants the Explorers to have
the best equipment to train
them for their future law
enforcement careers.
"The police department
is a very important part of
our community, and the
Police Explorers are very:
important, too," Smith said.,
"So I'm glad to be able to
help out."

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, MARCH 12, 2009



Setting our course for Damascus


Christians
commemorate the
Conversion of Saint Paul
the Apostle because for
most of us, he is hailed as
one of the greatest saints
and martyrs who have ever
lived. But there are some
who despise him as the man
who high-jacked the true
Gospel and invented an
- oppressive religion known
as Christianity. They think
that the Christian Church
labors under the tyranny
of St. Paul's thoughts and
because ofhim has losttouch
with the hidden Gospel of
Jesus Christ. Those who
follow this heretical way of
thinking are led by the likes
of John Shelby Spong and
believe that the leadership
of the modem Church is
called to liberate the human
race from the bondage of
St. Paul and return to the
purer form of Christianity
that was lost on St. Paul's.
account.
Those who follow
this way of thinking are'
heretical and apostate. They
are arrogant if they think
they can sit in judgment
of an Apostle who was the
foremost evangelist and
teacher that Christ ever
called. If the Church is in
bondage, it most assuredly
is not due to hearing,
obeying, and believing the
words penned by St. Paul
under the inspiration of the


Holy Spirit. The Church
today is only in bondage IF
it has refused to follow the
example of this Apostle and
conform to God's Truth.
This is the dilemma
that we all
face. God has
spoken through
the prophets,
evangelists,
teachers,pastors,
and. apostles,
'and we, like
St., Paul, have
set our course
for Damascus
only to be
confronted with
the revelation THE VEI
of God in Jesus LEA
Christ-in All Sain
His Word of Church,
Truth, we" are A pari
struck blind, Christial
helpless, and in Cl
need of grace,
forgiveness, and healing.
For St. Paul, the Gospel was
an awakening and a calling
to follow Jesus Christ.
Ananias, God's messenger
of the Church to St. Paul.
declared to him the purpose
of his life, "I will shew him
how great things he must
suffer for my name's sake."
Our first tendency on
hearing these words of God
'to St. Paul is to imagine
that he would endure trials
of beating, shipwreck,
stoning, .and persecution.
It was the path that hie was


willing to follow, but a
greater suffering occurred
-immediately and continued
to press on him. for the
rest of his life, i.e., the
submission ofhis intellect to
the revelation
of God. This
is the story
of a brilliant,
success ful
man. He was
a respected
member, of
a religious
community,
and a hero
for the wrong
r e I ithg i o u s
N. JOHN E. cause. This is
SURE a man whose
tsAnglican opinions
Gainesville. about life and
sh of the truth were
n Episcopal well formed
church before being
confronted
with the Word of God, a
man whose reputation was
hard earned and profitable
until that moment when he
encountered Jesus ,Christ
on the road to Damascus.
The suffering began
immediately and it was
the suffering of humility!
It was the indignity of
being labeled a follower of
God's Incarnate, crucified,
resurrected, and ascended
Son.
St. Paul learned that
the suffering to which he
was called .was nothing


short of full identification
with His Lord. He endured
39 stripes; he was beaten
with rods, he was stoned;
he was ship wrecked three
times, and in addition to all
of these physical tests of
his will, he acknowledged
that he faced weariness,
painfulness, thirst, hunger,
fasting, and nakedness. (II
Corinthians, chapter. 11)
We have to wonder how
one human could face so
many trials and never faint.
Thankfully, Saint Paul
supplies the answer:
"And He [Christ]"
said unto me, my grace is
sufficient for thee.: for my
strength is made perfect


in weakness. Most gladly
therefore will I rather glory
in my infirmities that the
power of Christ may rest
upon me. Therefore I take
pleasure in infirmities, in
reproaches, in necessities,
inpersecutions, in distresses
for Christ's sake: for when I
am weak, then am I strong.
I am become a fool in
glorying." (II Corinthians
12:9-11)
The conversion of
St. Paul was indeed a
conversion in suffering for
Christ's sake. The building
of a new man in Christ
comes about blow by
blow, test by test, moment
by moment, enduring the


shame of confessing Christ.
Perhaps the unwillingness
to sacrifice great riches,
worldly fame, extravagant
comfort, and the nobility
of wearing a purple shirt ,
has been the cause f6r ,
the Bishop Spongs of.
the Episcopal Church tI>.-
despise St. Paul and mocjkc
his conversion. We know"'
what St. Paul became"-
through obedience andr
Faith in Jesus Christ what. )
remains is to discover what'
becomes of those who are
being perverted from the
Faith rather than converted,
by the same.
