V.E. Whitehurst construction workers lay new asphalt onto U.S. Highway 441
near the intersection of County Road 235A. The new paving came under
warranty about three years after the company first repaved the road. Ruts

Today Reporter
ALACHUA- Failures in the asphalt
at the intersection of County Road 235A
and U.S. 441 in Alachua have led to a
repaving project this week, only about
three years after the original asphalt
was set.
According to the Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT) public
information officer Gina Busscher, the
site was under a three-year warranty
from the last road project, and the


contracting company, V.E. Whitehurst
and Sons, is repaying the areas at no
cost to the city.
"This guarantees that the asphalt
will be done correctly arid that it will
last and give taxpayers the best bang for
their buck," Busscher said..
The work is being done on the
outside lanes ard turn lanes near Santa
Fe High School (SFHS) as well as a
spot four miles north of CR 235A.
The project began Monday and is
expected to continue through Thursday,
Busscher said.

Seventh Heaven, the
seventh season
Ever since my interview
with Catherine Hicks, I've
enjoyed watching this show.
As any Seventh Heaven fan
knows, Catherine plays
Annie Camden, the wife
of Reverend Eric Camden,
(Stephen Collins). Together
with their seven children,
they experience all of the
drama that a pastor's family
can experience.
The later shows are
starting to look more


friendly television series


-like soap operas. Even
little Ruthie .(Mackenzie
Rosman) has a boyfriend in
this season. Her sister Lucy
(Beverly Mitchell) also gets
married in this season. The
real Beverly Mitchell just
got married a few weeks
ago. If you are reading this
Beverly, congratulations!
It's a great DVD set.
Even though the box looks
small, it still contains five
full disks with 22 episodes.

Mission Impossible, the
sixth season

Man from Uncle or In Like
Flint, you might really enjoy
this show about a group of
men called the Impossible
Mission Taskforce" or the
IMF. It is about a group
of highly trained spies and
experts who are sent out by
the Secretary, (who's never
seen) to solve "impossible"
missions, hence the name
.Mission Impossible.
In the beginning of the
show, the assignment is
given via a tape that will
self-destruct and toward
the end of the show there
are several masks that once
taken off reveal quite a bit.
The DVD set contains
all 22 episodes on six


disks.
Overall, this is a great
television series and I have
nohesitationrecommending
this DVD set.

JAG-the complete eighth
season
JAG stands for
Judge Advocate General
and it about a group of
NAVY officers, who are
investigators. The show
features David James Elliott
as Harm, Catherine Bell as
Mac, Patrick Labyorteaux
as Bud, and John Jackson
as A.J.
The show is family
friendly, though it might
be a bit too ,complicated


for children. It's serious
drama.
All episodes come in a
nice package and I have no
reservation endorsing this
product.

Make Mother's Dav s


Special to Alachua County Today
(Family Features) Moms deserve
special treatment, especially on
Mother's Day. Serve her something
deliciously different - a baked ravioli"
dinner that the kids can help create.
Natural foods expert and cookbook
author Maribeth Abrams has cooked
up an easy and great ravioli recipe
that's sure to make mom happy.
"I'm always looking for ingredients
that are versatile, quick and easy,"
said Abrams. "I love using Nasoya
wraps because they're fresh and all
natural, so they make healthy eating
convenient and fun." In addition to
using wraps for ravioli, Abrams likes
to use large square wrappers in place
of lasagna noodles and small square or
round wraps as mini pastry shells for
fruit tarts, baby quiche and chicken
salad cups for snacking,
For this special ravioli, kids can'
help fill the wraps and seal them up
by painting a line of water along the
sides of each wrap. Let them do the
crimping with a fork and the cheese
sprinkling, too.
Have them set the table with the
good dishes and silverware. Some
fresh flowers and handmade place
cards are easy ways to dress up the
table for mom.
For fun new ways to use Nasoya
wraps any time of year, visit www.

I recently received the following job
offer, but had to decline. Perhaps a reader
would be interested?
Job Description: Long term, team players
needed for challenging permanent work in
an often chaotic environment. Candidates
must possess excellent communication and
organizational skills and be willing to'work
variable hours, which will include evenings
and weekends and frequent 24-hour shifts'
on call. Some overnight travel required,
including trips to primitive camping sites
on rainy weekends and endless sports
tournaments in far away cities.
:. Responsibilities: The rest of your life.
nMustabe-iwilling:to.bite tongue
..repeatedly. Also. must possess
the physical stamina of a pack
mule 'and be able to go from
zero to 60 mph in three.seconds
flat,,in case the screams fromthe
backyard are not someone just
crying wolf. Must be willing
to face stimulating technical
challenges, such as small gadget -
repair, mysteriously sluggish -
toilets and stuck zippers. Must .
screen: phone calls,. maintain
calendars and coordinate
production of multiple
homework projects. Must be Ellen B
willing to be indispensable one
minute, an embarrassment the
next. Must always hope for the best, but be
prepared for the worst. Must assume final,
complete accountability for the quality
of the end product. Responsibilities also,
include floor maintenance and janitorial
work throughout the facility.
Possibility for Advancement and
Promotion: Virtually none. Your job is
to remain in the same position for years,
without complaining, constantly retraining
and updating your skills, so that those in
your charge can ultimately surpass you.
Previous Experience: None required
unfortunately. On-the-job training offered
on a continually exhausting, basis.
Wages and Compensation: None. You

pay them - offering frequent raises and
bonuses. A balloon payment is due when
they turn 18 because of the assumption that
college will help them become financially
independent. When you die, you give them
whatever is left. The oddest thing about this
reverse-salary scheme is that you actually
enjoy it and wish you could only do more.
Benefits: While no health or dental
insurance, no pension, no tuition
reimbursement, no paid holidays and ho
stock options are offered; this job supplies
limitless opportunities for personal growth
and free hugs for life if you play your qards


' .In..case you '.didn't
recognize it, this seemingly
' impossible job description
is that of "mother," and
according to the U.S. Census
. , Bureau, there are over 82
S million such "employees" in
the USA. And with Mother's
Day right around the comer,
maybe it's time to give a few
props to this most special
."employee."
f ' Mother's Day is a
.tradition reaching back over
100 years as a time we honor
oukari our mothers, both living
and in memory. It's hard to,
visualize where we would be
without the guidance and maternal advice of
mothers. How many times while growing
up did we hear.the preventative medicine
approach to life as doled out by our most
passionate protectors?
"Always wear clean underwear - you
never know when you'll be in an accident"
or "Don't put that in your mouth, you don't
know where it's been" or "Don't make
'that face' or it will freeze that way" (also
a favorite of grandmothers) or "Close that
door! Were you raised in a barn?" or "If you
can't say something nice, don't say anything
at all" or my personal favorite: "What if
everyone jumped off a cliff? Would you do
it, too?"


Aside from offering maternal wisdom,
mothers also tackle the seemingly
insurmountable task of molding uncivilized
and completely unsocialized little beings of
egocentric energy and transforming them
into acceptable, and occasionally admirable,
little people who grow up to become, for the
most part, good bigger people.
Mothers are excellent field generals of
the home front, tending to all aspects 'in
their purview from skinned knees to last
minute science projects to ground beef
prepared a gazillion ways and often posing
as a gourmet meal complete with crunchy
little crudites that women love and most
men disdain. .
A significant .percentage of mothers
work outside the home as well as inside;
meaning that mothers are indeed a hearty
lot adept at switching home and hearth for
the business world with style, a constant
juggling act. In other words, mothers own
the "can do" attitude they strive to instill iri
their children. Mothers take this in stride,
all the while leading, nurturing, guiding and
sometimes cajoling their own children to
become not one of a million, but one in a
million.
SOn that special day when children honor
their mothers with cards, gifts, and flowers,
get off your can and do something for that
mom in your life. But don't worry, moms
appreciate a gift from the heart, in the form
of a few loving words, as much if not more
than store-bought bric-a-brac. The reality is
the best gift for a mom is knowledge that her
children will grow to become responsible,
caring adults. Let your mom know how
special she is, whether through thought or
deed.
To all the moms out there, Happy
Mothers Day!

My two cents


Celebrate the common thres


Have you noticed all of the flowers,
cards and candies popping up at retail
stores? If the visual overloads haven't
cued you off yet, I'll give you
a little hint: Mother's Day
is Sunday. The special thing
about this holiday is that it is
indicative of something we
all have in common: mothers.
Maybe some of our mothers .
have. passed away, and some
mothers haven't been able to .
be there for us for whatever
reason, but we all came from
the wombs of women who put
about nine months ofpain, back .: .
strain and odd food cravings
into giving us life. If that isn't Cra
worthy of some appreciation, I craig
don't know what is.
Now, I must be honest and tell you
that I often have a cynical attitude toward
holidays. Don't get me wrong. I love
getting and giving presents, I love family
time, and I love getting days off from work.


C


(Dear editor: The last part of the preceding
sentence was in no way representative
of the truth. I simply wanted to connect
with the readers. I would
never want to spend my
days anywhere else but at
the office.) But anyhow,
aside-' from the benefits
of holidays, I suspect
.- certain corporations and
S businesses capitalize
..,; - on these celebrations to
^- generate revenue.
Not that these holidays
aren't sincere attempts to
commemorate important
Events, people and ideals. I
just think holidays such as
OX Mother's Day have evolved
to include too much
emphasis on cards and roses, when the day
was set aside solely to express appreciation
for, well, mothers. Appreciation can be
shown through the purchase of these
simple gifts, but I think it's important to


know that these are not the sole sources of
joy for mothers. I know this not because I
am a mother (just for the record, I'm not),
but because I know what it is like to feel
(or not feel) appreciated.
But now that I've warned you about
my skepticism, I Want to say that this is
not a downer column. I am not a "Negative
Nelly," as some like to say. I simply want
to point out that we often go about our
days, pass by mom and think "Where's
dinner?"
It's sad, but often true. Although the
role of the mother figure has evolved over
the years to include full work days, moms
are often still expected to cook, clean and
take care of the kids. So, mothers have
taken on more responsibilities, but we
continue to look at them as the people who
keep the house up and running.
That's why Mother's Day is becoming
more important as time passes. These
women are there for us when we trip and
fall. They are there to wipe the mud and dirt
off our noses. These women stand by us


when we break up with our first boyfriends
and girlfriends, and they push us forward
through our most difficult times. But they
are only celebrated once each year. They
receive one day of recognition for 364 days
of hard work that often goes unnoticed.
Just for the record, I've noticed the
sacrifices my mother and other mothers
have made to keep the Earth rotating. The
greatest minds would not be so great had it
not been for a mother. Einstein, Aristotle
and Darwin would not have been, so
impactful if they had not been born, would
they?
So, I say all this to say one thing.
Mother's Day needs to be moved to
Monday so we can all get another day
off from work. (Dear editor: HAPPY
MOTHER'S DAY!)

Oral hygieneand overallhealth


SQ: Why is oral hygiene so
important?
A: Oral hygiene is
important to many facets of
your overall well-being.-For
one thing, infections in the
moith can cause problems
in other parts of the body,
especiallyyourheart. Another,
of course, is the beauty of
your smile. Your smile is a
big part of a first impression.
It can help with personal and.
professional success. A full,
properly, aligned set of teeth is
also critical to speech. Missing
teeth can make you sound like
a cartoon character. Food
digestion is another critical
component. Properly chewed
food is better absorbed by the


body and fewer nutrients are
lost.
Along., ith- the, smile,
freshbreath isalsolimportant
in interpersonal relationships.
A clean, healthy mouth is
the first step toward clean,
healthy breath. Maintaining
your good dental health
through good care at home
and regular visits to your
dentist will end up saving you
money. By catching problems
like cavities or gum disease
early, your dentist can correct
the situation quickly. Letting
the problems go until they are
unbearable could result in a
long - and costly - corrective
treatment . program. Your
dentist is your friend.

NEWBERRY:
Continued from page Al

wood-frame house on the
property to make way for
construction of the plant,
which is designed to inject
vitamins into foods such as
rice and flour.
However, City Planner
Lowell Garrett said there
will not necessarily be a
historical loss from the
ilemolition.
"It's an old house, but
it's been changed over
the years," Garrett said.
"The historical board
looked at it and determined
it did not maintain its
historical character and
'that it was dilapidated
to the point of not being
able to be economically
rehabilitated."
Also on the horizon for
the project is a $3 million
transportation project that
will be partially funded
through President Obama's
stimulus package. The
:road improvement project
Sis aimed to support traffic
impacts at the intersection
of 30t Avenue and State
goad 45 brought on by the
gPew plant.
SThe road project will
4fso utilize a sometimes
forgotten means -of
transportation - the railroad
.System. ,
SGerry Dedenbach,
director of planning. for


Plant will utilize railroad for exports


Causseaux, Hewitt and
Walpole, said the site will
build a railroad parcel that
will run between the 10
buildings of the plant to
load food on the railroad
cars for export.
Dedenbach also
estimated this system
to create around 2,000
jobs' as well as several
thousand spin-off jobs in
the community when new
businesses open as a result
of new workers in thq city.
To help train and educate
the several thousand
employees at ANF, Stefan
Davis, managing member
of ANF's property" owner
Technology Corporation,
said a training program
through Santa Fe College is
underway.
Though still in the
planningstages,theprogram
would train employees in
the procedures and methods
for the vitamin-infused food
plant.
"There will have to
be a training program
somewhere, and Santa Fe'
College is the most logical
choice," Davis said.
The five-phase project is
estimated to begin in early
2010 and may take up to 10
years to coinplete.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, MAY 07, 2009


Overcoming the blami


Words of praise seem hard to come
by nowadays. Complain, complain,
complain. It seems to be a fact of life
that compliments are becoming rare. And
when it comes to religious institutions this
also applies. Unfortunately, complaining
is as American as apple pie and baseball.
Nearly every major business in America
has a complaint department.
People are employed full-time
to take complaints and they
are never disappointed by the
enthusiastic response made by
customers. Complaints are as
old as the first sin-remember
the words Adam addressed to
God, "the woman whom you
gave to be with me, she gave me
ofthe tree and late. "
It's safe to say that the first
sin was rebellion against the THE VE
authority of God's Word and .
Commandment, and the second AI Sain
All Sain
sin was complaining to God. Church,
Adam is in every way the father A ar
of us, all. God places us in a Christia
garden, provides for our every C
need and then surrounds us with
His goodness and presence, and
the moment we desire more and sin, we
place the blame squarely toward God.
In Ezekiel chapter 18, verse 25, we find
that the Jewish nation is as given to this sin
of complaining against God just as we find
it ih the world today. The background of
this chapter is pretty straight forward. The
prophet Ezekiel was sent to warn the Jews
thatjudgmentis looming. It's that unsettling
sound of God walking in the garden after
the fruit's been eaten! The people respond
by giving Ezekiel a proverb, "the fathers
have eaten sour grapes, and the children's
teeth are set on edge. " What in the world
does'this mean and what has it to do with


judgment?
It's their passing the buck. They're
ducking responsibility by placing the blame
on someone else, ultimately pointing back
to God Himself "The fathers have eaten
sour grapes" means our parents made the
mistake. "...the children's teeth are set on
edge" means that the.children are the ones
suffering for that mistake.
In other words,' the
prophet announces God's
judgment; the people respond
That they are the innocent
victims' of the sins of their
S parents; and finally, God is to
blame because He is unfair.
We need to understand
something right off-the sins
of the parents will be seen in
their children. A generation
. JON E' of uncontrolled adults will
.N.. JOHN E.'
ASURE spawn a generation of self-
Ats Ang n absorbed brats. There is a
SGainesviie. direct correlation between
ish of the evil parents and evil children.
n Episcopal This comes from a universal
hurch law of nature; what you sow
is what you reap. No farmer
in his right mind would sow
weeds and expect to harvest grain.
When the Jews cry out that their parents
are the ones who sinned, their thinking is
-flawed because they aren't taking personal
responsibility for their actions. God hasn't
judged the children because of the sins of
the parents, He has judged them because
they have refused to repent for their own
actions.
God addresses the complaint of the
Jews in verse 25 of Ezekiel 18, "Yet you
say 'the way of the Lord is notfair'Hear
now, 0 house of Israel, is it not My way
which is fair, and your ways which are not
fair?."'


.The way the Hebrew, reads could be,
"the way of the Lord is not equal" and
what's not "equal?" It means that man is
measuring God by the measure of himself.
Man has looked at God, and decided that
God must act as men act - fallen, sinful,
and often without regard to truth, honesty,
integrity, and righteousness. It's like
saying, "if I were God I wouldn't condemn
someone for this sin, after all we are all
guilty of it, so who am I to blame someone
else." And so, generation after generation
has accused God of not being "fair" of not
being "equal" to man.
Anyone.with even a small hint of true
religion, would see how absurd this is.
How could -man ever expect to worship a
God that is equal to himself? Fairness or
equality has to be measuredby the character
of God and not the fanciful wishes of fallen


e game

mankind. Is God holy? Then man must be
holy. Is God righteous? Then man must
be righteous?
We will not call God unfair! The Gospel
that we proclaim is this-that Christ Jesus
- the only begotten Son of God - God of
God - Light of Light - very God of very
God-became man for our sake. And
while we were yet sinners He died' for
us. He who was without sin died for us'
sinners that through Him we might become
the righteousness of God. And what is
required bf man is but to trust in Him and
not ourselves. We must acknowledge our
sins and throw ourselves on the mercy of
God, seeking the assistance of the Holy
Spirit to lift us up to the standard which
God 1Has set, and which' God has met, in
Jesus Christ our Lord.

Bring your money home!

Help save Jobs, families and futures right here in North Central Florida.


I don't claim to be an economic expert. Instead,
I believe I am just like most of you, with many of
the same day-to-day concerns and interests. I tell
you this so that before you read on you understand I
am not some high powered spin doctor in some far
off place; I'm just another father in North Central
Florida trying to do the right thing and keep a family
going. When I come to work, I am driving either a
plain Ford Ranger with manual windows of a Ford
Windstar van that needs. the windows fixed. My
Office is in the City of Alachlia,
Florida; it's not in New York, or
North Carolina, or Toronto.
Those things beipg said, I have
to admit I have 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 as well. Unfortunately, this -
collective "tightening of our belts"' works contrary
to the idea of spending more money in order to
stimulate our economy...and I for one can't blame
anybody for trying to increase savings during times
like these. It's easy to worry about others when our
home and family is secure, but when that most basic
security is threatened; concern for others naturally,
and rightly so, takes a back seat.
So, that being said, let's assume that a mass
spending spree to jump start our local economy
is not a realistic- solution, and for each of us
individually, "tightening our belts" has been and is,
a prudent course of action.


Finally, I get to the point.
Without. spending a dime more than we are
spending right now, without sacrificing the security
of our homes and families, how can we help jump
start our local economy? How can we start saving
local businesses andjobs? How can we start helping
our 'friends and neighbors without pulling money
out of our own: stretched budgets and giving it to
them? The answer is to "bring your money home!"'
Bring youi money home! Theprimary focus ofthis
idea is not where you'
spend your money,
though that can help
tremendously, it
,is where you keep
your money 'arid.
where you borrow
your money. When
your deposits and
loans are with a
local credit union,
the impact of those
-. deposits and' loans
are helping your
local economy, not
being shipped out 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'there. financed with national firms? Bring
your loans and your accounts home, stimulate
our local economy while saving money, and help
save jobs, futures, and families right 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.
SThat 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.

Peggy slept late that first morning in the Black Hills. She woke
up not sure where she was. Nothing looked familiar. Then she
remembered. This was South Dakota.
Slowly Peggy turned-over in the warm bed where she had spent
the night. As she turned, she could see out a small window by her
bed. And what Peggy saw through the window made her bolt up
in bed. In disbelief, she pressed her. nose flat against the window.
Not far away, on the side of a mountain, was a giant carving of
George Washington - THE George Washington! President
George Washington!
Peggy could only stare at the scene before her. But there was
no question about it. It was the same George Washington whose
picture hung in her schoolroom back in Nebraska.
But how could George Washington's face be up on top of a mountain?
Peggy threw back the covers and jumped off the top bunk. She
couldn't wait to tell her family about the face on the mountain.

George Washington carved on the side of a mountain.
Spend a summer with Peggy, Old Mrs. Potter, the
Keystone Boys and each day say, "Good morning,
Mr. President."


But the
cabin was
empty.
No one was
in sight.
Through the kitchen.window, Peggy
saw her parents outside, leaning against the car. Her brother was
standing on the running board. Al of them were looking up at
the mountain. Peggy rushed outside where she found still another
surprise. From the front yard, she could see the face of George
Washington. But' to her amazement, right beside Mr. Washington
was the face of Thomas Jefferson. Two presidents had been carved
into the mountain!
Peggy had never seen anything so magnificent Even her parents
could hardly take their eyes off the mountain.
Mrs. Jansen put her arm around Peggy and told her that those
faces were why they had come to South Dakota. Because he was
very good with dynamite, Peggy's father had been asked to help
add another face to the mountain. The new face would be
Abraham Lincoln's.
As the Jansen family stood admiring the huge faces, a voice called
out to them. Peggy saw a man coming out of a nearby cabin. Her
father walked over to greet him.
The two men shook hands and talked for a few minutes. When
Mr Jansen returned, he said the man had invited them to a church
not far away. It was dose enough to walk, Mr. Jansen said.
Quickly, Peggy's mother hustled everyone inside for breakfast.
Peggy hurried through her food and then went to put on her
Sunday clothes.
In the little room where she had slept, she could hardly button
her dress.
All she wanted to do was look out the window at George
Washington. Because trees covered part of her window, he
was the only President she could see.
Later, as she walked with her family down the path toward the
church, she could smell pine needles. Living in the piney woods
was going to be wonderful. In fact, the whole summer was going
to be wonderful. Peggy could just feel it in her bones.
