High Springs businesses fed up


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS - Change
doesn't always come easy for a city
dedicated to maintaining a quaint,
historic lifestyle. In High Springs,
a battle to preserve antiquity while
pushing economic growth has delayed
simpler development codes and
has made business owners question
regulation.
"I'm so sick and tired of hearing
all the wonderful things that are


going on in
Alachua, not
High Springs,"
said Antoinette
Hunt, owner of
Talk ofthe Town
Hair Salon in
High Springs.


"We business owners
are constantly being
attacked with silliness
insteadofwhat'simportant
to this community."

"I feel like we've lost the common-
sense factor. We business owners
are constantly being attacked with
silliness instead of what's important
to this community.'"
A drop in the code issue's bucket

on sign usage for
business owners

Commission voted on Thursday.

By SARA POWELL
Today Reporter
ALACHUA
Commissioner Orien Hills
and Gary Hardacre won
seats 4 and 5 for the City
Commission election on
Tuesday. With 64 percent
of the votes, Hills defeated
Michael Canney 426 votes
to 238 votes, and Hardacre
defeated Douglas Dean and
Rodger Mallard with 371
votes to their 181 and 110
votes, respectively.
Hills said this will be
his last term, but he admits
he has said that before and
not followed through. In
this term, Hills said he
wants to see the sewer plant
expansion plans succeed,
and he also wants to see the
Alachua branch of Santa Fe
College (SFC) open.
"I want people be able
to go to school and get a
job," he said. "Opening this
college will be another step
in making Alachua a self-
sustaining community."
Hills' .opponent,
Michael Canney, said the
election results seem. fair,


but he is concerned with
voter apathy.
"Next year, I'd like to
see a more lively discussion
take place at City Hall," he
said. "I'm disappointed with
the low turnout and that the
candidates weren't able to
have a forum to discuss the
issues."
Canney said he has no
plans to run again, but he is
not ruling the option out.

Archer city



manager fired,



escorted out


By GABRIELA IZARRA
Today Reporter
ARCHER - Archer's
interim city manager,
Hugh Williams, was
fired at Monday's City
Commission meeting after
refusing to comply with a
motion passed to appeal
the suspension of former
interim city manager
Jocelyn Garcia, whom
Williams replaced.
"He's going against
us," said Commissioner
Roberta Lopez. "We are the
bosses."
Lopez made a motion


for Williams' immediate
termination. Though she
initially suggested he keep
the position until the end
of the week, Williams
insinuated that staying
for only a few more days
would be pointless. The
motion passed in a 4 to 1
decision with only Mayor
Leann Slaughter opposing.
Williams turned in his
keys and was escorted out
of City Hall.
"I understand we've
put Mr. Williams in a
very awkward position,"

Taking Action: Make yourfuture


health-care wishes known


By JENNI WILLIAMS
Special to Alachua County
Today

Making plans for the
future is not an' easy thing
to do. Things change every
day. From the weather to
jobs to the current economic
environment, nothing
seems to be consistent.
Yet, when it comes to your
health care, it is vitally
important to decide now
what you want and share


this information with your
family and friends.
Haven Hospice, along
with other national, state
and local health-care
organizations, is taking a
leadership role to highlight
the importance of advance
health-care decision
making. This is part of
a national initiative to
recognize April 16, 2009
as National Healthcare
Decisions Day.
In conjunction with


Ask Your Dentist
by Douglas M. Adel, D.D.S.

Do's and don't for

brace wearers


Q: Do you have any tips
for people who wear braces?
A: The first tip is to
diligently follow whatever
instructions your dentist or
orthodontist has given you.
That includes sticking to the
schedule for wearingheadgear
or a removable appliance.
Other tips are: Have a
specific, safe place for storing
the appliance, elastics and
any other related equipment.
Remove appliances when
playing a sport. Appliances
are traps for food particles.
So brush thoroughly after
each meal and snack. If you
wear a removable appliance,


.Oral irrigators are helpful in
dislodging food from fixed
braces.
Sweets are not good for
anyone, but they're especially
problematic for people who
wear braces. Stay away from
them. Also stay away from
hard foods that could damage
braces. Nuts, bagels, hard-
crusted bread and corn on
the cob are just some of the
foods you should avoid or
be very careful when eating.
Hard fruits, like apples, are
okay if you cut them into
small pieces. If your braces
or appliance causes soreness
in the mouth, try rinsing with


clean that, too, after eating. ' warm salted water.

area banks, libraries and
chambers of commerce, as
well as local community
groups and organizations
throughout 18 counties,
Haven Hospice will
be highlighting the
importance of encouraging
all Americans to make
and document their future
health-care decisions now,
rather than later, when it
may be too late.
One way you can
make your wishes known
is through a document
called an advance directive.
This legal document is an
important tool that helps
you determine the care you
would receive in the future
if you were unable to make
a decision for yourself, due
to serious illness, injury
or unconsciousness. It
also provides instructions
about your preferences
for medical treatment and
gives specific information
to your family, caregivers
and physician about how
you want to be treated.
Five Wishes, an easy-
to-use advance directive,
is the first living will that
enables you to state how
you wish to be treated if
you are not able to speak
for yourself. It also enables
you to choose the person
you want to make health-
care decisions for you
with regard to personal,
emotional and spiritual
desires, as well as medical
wishes.
Paul Malley, president
of Aging with Dignity,
says only an estimated
one in five people have a
living will or other form of
advance directive. Haven
Hospice encourages every
person to complete Five
Wishes and has provided an
easy link on its website to.
request a free copy.
Simply click on the
"Five Wishes" link on the
upper right hand corer
of Haven's homepage at
www.havenhospice.org


and request one for you,
and perhaps a spouse or
friend. You can request
them in English, Spanish
or both. Or you can also
request one by calling 800-
727-1889 Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. For a reference list
of. participating locations
in the community where
you can get your free
Five Wishes, click on the
"Participating Locations"
link under the Five Wishes
logo on the homepage.
Making your health-
care plans and documenting
them now is vital to your
future. Whether you are
21 or 89, document your
wishes now and share them
with your family, so they
won't have to make. heart-
wrenching decisions later.

Hospice, 'is responsible

Our current economy and how we can make it better

'...in words even I can understand.
Guest Commentary by Robert Hart, Vice President - Marketing, SunState Federal Credit Union


I don't claim to be an economic expert. I
I believe I am just like most of you, with m
the same day-to-day concerns and interests
you this so that before you read on you under
am not some.high powered spin doctor.in so

My office is in the City of Alachua, Florida;
in New York, or North Carolina, or Toronto.
Those things being said, I have to admit
no clue where to start when it comes to
solving our nation's economic woes.
However, I do have an idea about how
we can jump start our local economy
with an influx of millions of dollars ...
and we won't have to spend a dime!
I have already heard 'or read about
many plans proposing we all start
spending more money locally in order
to get our local economy moving. That
makes sense, except that many of us
are cutting back on spending in order
to make ends meet. Not only are major
purchases being put off, but many
of us are cutting back on the little things a
Unfortunately, this collective "tightening
belts" works contrary to the idea of spending
money in order to stimulate our economy.
for one can't blame anybody for trying to ir
savings during times like these. It's easy to
about others when our home and family is :
but when that most basic security is threi
concern for others naturally, and rightly so
a back seat.
So, that being said, let's assume that a
spending spree to jump start our local ece
is not a realistic solution, and for each
individually, "tightening our belts" has been
a prudent course of action.
Finally, I get to the point.
Without spending a dime more than '
spending right now, without sacrificing the se
of our homes and families, how can we hell


instead, start our local economy? How can we start saving
lany of local businesses and jobs? How can we start helping
. I tell our friends and neighbors without pulling money
stand I put of our own stretched budgets and giving it to
Dme far them? The answer is to "bring your money home!"
Central Bring your money home! The primary focus of
keep a this idea is not where you spend your money, though
driving that can help tremendously, it is where you keep
ows or your money and where you borrow your money.
Fixed. When your deposits and loans are with a local credit
it's not union, the impact of those deposits and loans are
helping your local economy, not being shipped out
I have of the area and into a regional or national fund for

distribution. When the CEO of a national bank buys
a car, does he buy it here? No, he probably buys
it in New York or some other major metro area.
The CEO of SunState Federal Credit Union buys
his cars locally, helping local dealers. And he buys
his groceries and meals locally, as well. So do all
the other SunState employees, both front and back
office. Do you have any idea where the big banks
have their back office operations? Well, neither do
I, but I bet it's hundreds, if not thousands, of miles
away.
I know this sounds simple, but the easiest way
for each of us to help our friends and neighbors
without spending a dime is to move all of our
accounts and loans to locally owned and operated
financial institutions. Frankly, I feel like using
any local institution is better than using a national
institution, because it keeps our money's impact at
home! Of course, after spending over 17 years with


SunState Federal Credit Union as an employee and
member, I probably, don't have to tell you which
local community credit union that's devoted to
its membership and communities I choose to
recommend!
If we all took the time right now to bring.our
mortgages back home to local institutions, not
only would we be refinancing at great rates, but we
would pump millions and millions of dollars back
into our local economy. And what about all the car
loans out thefe financed with national firms? Bring
your loans and your accounts home, stimulate our
local economy while saving money, and help save
jobs, futtires, and families right
SRST! here in North Central Florida! An
added benefit to acting on this
now is that SunState's mortgage


and refinance 'loan rates are
extremely low and for a limited
time, we are offering new auto
loan rates on used auto loans, both
for purchases and refinances.
That pretty much sums up
my idea. Sorry New York.
Sorry Houston and Charlotte
and Chicago and wherever else
those national institutions are


headquartered.
If bringing your business home; helping save
jobs and futures right here in North Central Florida,
appeals to you, contact us and we'll help you with
the move.

opponents Doug Dean and
Roger Mallard for running
clean, positive, issues-oriented
campaigns.
I' 'ifl also like to thank
my family, supporters, and
volunteers for the hard work
and support they gave me
throughout the campaign.
And most importantly, I
would like to thank the voters
forgiving methe opportunity to
be your City Commissioner.
I look forward to serving
the citizens of the City of
Alachua for the next three
years.
Togetherwecanaccomplish
much.

Simplify the rules


The Obama administration says it
will propose immigration reform next
month (http://tinyutl.com/da68qa).
:. I wonder what they'll do.
SAs a libertarian, I'm for open bor-
ders. ButAmerica has become a welfare
state, and as Milton Friedman pointed
out, you can't have open
borders and a welfare state.
Terrorism provides another
reason. We can't have open
borders when some people F
want to kill us.
So what should be I Yi
done?-
"Put troops with guns
here." Says Robert "Little
Dog" Crooks, a self-ap- John S
pointed border policeman.
Crooks leads the Mountain
Minutemen, a vigilante group that tries
to keep illegals from entering Ameri-
ca.
"These borders have to be secured.
We're at war," he told me on my ABC
special "Bailouts. and Bull (http://ti-
nyurl.com/dcnx41).
SCongress decided that the best way
to protect America is to build an expen-
sive fence. When complete later this
year, it will extend 670 miles along the
Mexican border. But the fence won't
stop the illegals. After all, the border is
thousands of miles long.
"The smart smuggler's ain't gonna
go to where the high security's at,"


S


Crooks points out.
We watched as he walked through
an unguarded tunnel into Mexico and
back.
"Where's the Department of Home-
land Security? Hello! Anybody here?"
The fence does make it a little
harder for some illegals to
cross, but San Diego Bor-
der Patrol Chief Michael
Fisher acknowledges that
they still get past the fence.
Some climb over the fence.
We found dozens of aban-
doned ladders near the
fence. One group of ille-
gals even built a ramp to
tossel bring a truck across.
They also cut holes in
the fences. It doesn't mat-
ter how high a fence is if you can cut
right through it. The place I visited had
holes every few feet.
So despite all your tax dollars
spent, there's no evidence the fence
has reduced the number of illegals who
cross. A survey of thousands who came
to the U.S.-Mexico border to sneak
into America found that nine out of
10 did enter eventually (http://tinyurl.
com/dh9to9).
Even if we built an impenetrable
fence, it .would only solve part of the
problem. Half of America's undocu-
mented migrants didn't sneak in. They
came here legally and overstayed a


tourist or student visa (http://tinyurl.
com/4dx28d). The 9/11 terrorists did
that. A fence wouldn't have had any ef-
fect on them.
"I don't know how anybody can't
see that this stupid fence is a waste of
money," says Drew Carey, the come-
dian and television host who recently
woke up to the benefits of liberty and
volunteered to host segments of Rea-
son TV (http://reason.tv/) on the Web.
He has a theory for why America has
built a wall.
"Contractors get money from the
politicians that they've donated to,
and politicians get to say, 'I'm getting
tough.'"
Politicians do like acting tough.
U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, wants
the fence electrified. "We do that with
livestock all the time," King says.
Need I point out that Mexicans are
not livestock?
Which brings me to ask: If it's good
to wall offAmerica, why just one-third
of the Mexican border? What about
our northern border? Last year, more
Middle Eastern nationals were caught
crossing illegally from Canada than
from Mexico. And if we were to wall
off Canada, we'd still have miles of
East- and West Coast beaches. Should
we put machine guns there?
"Don't be silly. Nobody's ever sug-
gested doing anything mean," former
.presidential candidate and congress-


man Duncan Hunter told me. He brags
that he "built" the fence in San Diego.
"I think the message is this, John,
if you want to come into the United
States, which has the biggest front dodr
in the world, you gotta knock on the
front door."
B.ut, Drew Carey notes, America
doesn't make it easy to knock.
"It's so hard to get a guest-worker
permit. There's so many red-tape hoops
you have to jump through. It's easier to
sneak across the border.... It should be:
If you want a job, you can come here
and work."
I agree. Most migrants do want to
come here to work. They take jobs
few Americans want to do. They pay
taxes. Many become good citizens. We
should make it easier for them to do
that, legally.

Williams had suspended
SGarcia from her position as
Archer's public works director
for two unpaid weeks on March
18 after a.heated conflict at City
Hall. Garcia allegedly had a loud,
boisterous and abusive demeanor
with an AFLAC representative.
Garcia claimed a form in her

Garcia filed an appeal.

commissioners reviewed the
case during an April 7 hearing.
The committee, consisting of
Slaughter and Commissioner

Slaughter felt Williams was

while MacKenzie thought the
suspension was excessive.
The Commission passed
a motion on Monday to grant

Drymon, who was hired as

Archer is in the process of

A selection committee will
review the applications, and a new
city manager is expected to be
selected by May I and appointed
by May 18. These dates are not
set in stone and may have to take
place earlier because of the City's
circumstances.
Lopez said the City is looking

He saith unto them,


"Follow me"


What is communication? It is defined as
process by which information is exchanged
between individuals through a common
system of symbols, signs, or behavior.
The sender passes information through a
media to the receiver. It's the receiver that
deciphers and interprets the information.
Any inconsistencies in the information
can cause miscommunication.
The receiver can also cause the
misunderstanding by having
a preconceived idea of what
the message truly meant. So,
miscommunication is a failure
to communicate clearly.
This can happen lbause
the sender puts out coi Tusing
information or the receiver
misinterprets or doesn't
get the information. Such
miscommunication can occur T
THE VE
between anyone. As humans, LJ
we assign importance to the AlI Sai
various inputs, both physical Church,
and mental, that we receive in A par
our day to day routine and we Christia
assign responses to each one of C
those inputs. This happens at a
level of our subconscious, so we
aren't fully aware of it- our mind is waiting
for a key word, phrase, or condition before
it reacts..
This is true of what we hear and
how we react to our interpretation or
misinterpretation, even to a simple and
straight-forward message. We tend to
cling to an idea that we want to hold and
are quick to reject any alternatives. This
is especially true in the area of religion
- we take our ideas about God and wash
them in our own self-righteousness and
then go about worshipping the ideas we've
constructed in the little "mad-scientist
lab" of our subconscious, calling what
we've manufactured, God. This is the
best explanation that I can come up with,
that shows the results of the years of


shallowness and restructuring that have
become apparent in modem Christianity.
This is also evident in the history of
'the Jewish people when it comes to Jesus
Christ. They have a preconceived idea
of how the Messiah will come to rescue
His chosen people. They believe He will
come as a mighty king, on a magnificent
steed and vanquish their
oppressors with a single
word. Jesus' humble arrival
on an ass didn't fit into
their conjured up image.
Even though the Pharisees,
Sadducees and priests had
learned and memorized the
sayings of the prophets about
the Messiah and His arrival,
they could not and would not
let go of the glorious sight
I. JOHN E. they had created about His*
SURE victorious and triumphant
s Anglican arrival. They saw Jesus of
ainesville. Nazareth as a godly man
h of the who was threatening their
Episcopal authority, their power and
urch their income, thus they would
destroy a man, not kill God.
In the Gospel of Saint


Luke (18:31, f.f.), we see a very strange,
but all too common occurrence in the life of
the Apostles. It's an event that has become
strangely familiar to most of us throughout
our Christian life. God has spoken; He has
clearly' revealed His will in unmistakable
words, only to have His words lost in
confusion. We wonder how it's possible
for the Apostles to have been so close to
Christ and yet to be so deaf to what He was
saying. Jesus told them that they were to
know the mysteries of the kingdom of God.
But the Apostles expected to hear certain
things from their Lord, and when He says
otherwise, they process the words to mean
what they wanted Him to say. As is so often
the case, the only things the Apostles heard
from the Son of God is what they wanted to

hear. "This is the Son of God, He can't be
killed, His Father would not allow it."
In St. Luke's Gospel, the words of Christ
are difficult, not difficult to understand as
if He were speaking a different language,
but hard to swallow. "He shall be delivered
to the Gentiles, shall be mocked, spitefully
entreated, spitted on, they shall scourge
him, and put him to death. " The Apostles
are sure that nothing good can come from
this descriptive evil, and they are almost
oblivious to the way of redemption that
comes through suffering and through
sacrifice at a cost. The Kingdom that
the Apostles desire, is one of power, one
that violently shakes up the old order of
things. They want a new life without the
recognition of spiritual death. They're
blind to the richness and fullness of eternal
life with God, stuck in their ideals of this
earthly life.

MU


In Saint Luke's Gospel, we hear of the
blind man, Bartimaeus. We share with him
his blindness; his is physical and ours is
spiritual. We have to realize, just as the
Apostles, that freedom in the kingdom of
God can be had only through faith. Then,
just as Bartimaeus was able to see the light
and face of his Saviour, so too, can we see
this light. It comes through sacrifice and
tribulation, and the Apostles finally came to
understandthis afterthe Lords'resurrection.
If we want to realize the kingdom of God,
we too must ask for healing from our Great
Figh Priest, healing that allows us to see
is light and truth. . We must understand
and accept what He tells us to do: "Learn
of me;" "Believe in me;" "Have faith in
me;" "Abide in me: " "Follow me."

Andy Bates stacked another big crate in the wagon bed. Picking up
freight for his father's store was his favorite job. He liked meeting
the steamboats, and there was always excitement on the docks.
To rest his sore back, Andy stood up tall in the wagon. As he reared.
back, he could see another boat coming down river It was an
unusual looking boat, followed by three'canoes. A large black
object rode in the bow of the boat.
Andy focused his eyes on the boat which was fast approaching
the St. Louis docks. Suddenly he recognized the big black dog that
he had seen more than two years ago. Jumping from the wagon,
Andy let out a mighty shout, "Here they come! Its Lewis and Clark!"
Andy had never forgotten the time he met Captains Lewis and
Clark and the great dog, Seaman. Hardly a day had gone by that
he didn't think of them and wonder what they were doing.
Many people who came to his father's store talked about Lewis
and Clark. Most people believed they had all been lost.
As the long-awaited expedition sailed into St. Louis, the men on
the boat fired a shot from their big gun. It was a salute to the city
and an announcement that Lewis and Clark had returned.
Word spread quickly. By the time Andy reached the dock where
the expedition landed, almost everyone in town was running down
to riverside. Andy rushed to the first boat where the big dog stood
in the bow. Seaman began barking when Andy called his name.
Captain Meriwether Lewis stepped to the front of the boat and
stood by his dog. He spoke briefly to the crowd, saying the journey
had been a great success. Only one member of the expedition,
Sergeant Floyd, had died of an illness, but everyone else had
returned safely.




;i'inss zto 7;rh^ 7 A eout aQd 2o -
A. Pretend you lived in St. Louis in 1806 when Lewis and Clark
returned. Write a letter to a friend, telling about the return of
the expedition. Tell how excited people were and tell what
people said to Lewis and Clark. Tell how you felt.
B. Make a Lewis and Clark poster. Include some of the people,
places and events from the expedition. Find a place in your
school to display all the posters made by students in your class.


The crowd cheered at almost every word spoken by Captain -'-
Lewis. Then Captain Clark came forward and the entire city --
applauded the two great explorers.
With the boat securely tied, the first one to come on shore was ', "
Seaman. The big blick Newfoundlander raced around to the *
front of the boat and began licking Andy's outstretched hand.
Soon, Captains Lewis and Clark made their way through the.
crowd. Both stopped to shake hands with Andy. Smiling broadly, .
Andy welcomed them home, saying he had never given up on , .
them. He knew they would come back. The two great men thanked,'-,
Andy for his faith in them. Then Captain Lewis called to Seaman.
Andy rubbed the big dog's head and said, "I'm glad you're back,
too. I wish I could hear all the stories you have to tell." ..
Andy watched as Captains Lewis and Clark and Seaman madetheI" "
way up the riverbank to the little government office. There they '
would deliver an official report on their great American Odyssey.'.
