Archer


official


threatens


lawsuit
By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ARCHER Archer
commissioner Laurie Costello is
threatening to. take legal action
against the City of Archer and'
city officials ifthey do not retract
statements made concerning a
plan to censure herthat was never
pursued.
Interim City Manager Ward
Scott recently sent a letter to
Mayor Leann Slaughter calling for
a censure of Coslello for what he
called "abusive and embarrassing"'
behavior. but Scon retracted his
recommendation Monday prior to
the Commission meeting.
"As Interim City Manager,
'Ward Scott, in my efforts to bring
civility and decorum to the City
Commission of Archer it did not
go as I intended. It actually had
the opposite effect of my goal
of assisting the commission and
bringing stability to the city," he
wrote in a press release.
Scott wrote in a June 9 letter
to commissioners that he was
calling'for the censure of Costello
because she verbally attacked him
at the June 6 Commission meeting,
and according to Robert's Rules
of Order, a motion to censure
is used by governing bodies
when a member of the governing
body harasses, embarrasses and
humiliates other members.
Scott also wrote in the June 9
letter, "If you do not take strong,
clear, compulsory measures
against the continuing abusive
and embarrassing behavior of this
commissioner, the effectiveness
of your commission and your
municipal government will
continue to be seriously impaired.
And the confidence placed in you
by your public will continue to
erode."
Mayor Slaughter responded in

Four months later Lowe's impact on local businesses


By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
ALACHUA- Since the opening of
the Lowe's Home Improvement store
in February, some local businesses
have experienced the wrath of bulk
pricing and customer loss, while other
businesses are reaping the benefits. ,
Ace Hardware has seen its sales
plummet, and the store's customer
account has been cut in half with the
introduction of the new Lowe's, said
Christy Miller, store manager. Miller
said she has been forced to cut hours for
employees and slim down the full-time
staff from three people to one.


She said the store is struggling to
survive, with only the nuts and bolts
section remaining competitive.,
Miller recently moved back to
Alachua to raise her family in a small
town. She has worked as store.manager
for Ace Hardware since last June and
worries that all of the development
in Alachua will continue to drive out
smaller businesses like hers.
Even with the bleak outlook for Ace
Hardware, Alachua Farm and Lumber
owner Wayne Tanner said Lowe's
hasn't hurt his business. Tanner said his

city officials met with
citizens Saturday morning

A4 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, JUNE 25, 2009


Michelle Tolentino, from




property to true riches


By KEES BOER
Entertainment Writer

I've done a lot of
interviews in the last
several years, but very few
have impressed me more
than my interview with
Michelle Tolentino from
Manila, the Philippines.
Michelle is the youngest
sales and marketing head
of Trumpet, the first ever
Gospel theater in'Asia.
Michelle explained
what. her early life was
like. "When I was growing
up, I lived in a very
chaotic community. I was
surrounded by drug users,
prostitutes, and gamblers.
It all was a picture of
hopelessness. The people
around me would always
tell me, 'Michelle, you are
so ugly just like your father
ind you'll grow up like
him.' Those are the words
that were spoken into my
heart and those were cruel
words of anger and hatred.
So, therefore I didn't have
a future, because no one
would love me. So, I felt so
hopeless, that I really didn't
matter and that I was not
important."
All was not without
hope though. She enrolled
in a Compassion Student
-Center. "My life was never
really the same again.. I

loyal customers, along with
planning and a little luck,
have helped him weather
the Lowe's storm. Tanner
had been shifting the store's
products toward clothing,
guns and fishing tackle,
partly to prepare for Lowe's
and partly in reaction to
customer demand.
Sandy Jones, a High
Springs resident of eight
years, buys from both
Alachua Farm and Lumber
and Lowe's.
"I go to Alachua Farm
and Lumber for tools,
farm implements and other
specialty items," Jones
said. "I go to Lowe's for
run-of-the-mill stuff."
Alachua Farm and
Lumber has also stayed
competitive with hardware
and lumber by being
aggressive with prices.
Jones said the economic
recession and poor housing


market are more to blame
than Lowe's for businesses
struggling.
Food Lion Store
Manager Jody Lamb said
his sales have actually
increased with the new
Lowe's. He said sales are
up some 5 percent to 6
percent from.last year.
Lamb, who has been a
Food Lion store manager
for 20 years, nine of them in
Alachua, said the increase
may be temporary summer
trend because the biggest
sales boom has come, from
Lowe's customers buying
cookout supplies.
Despite this potential
symbiotic relationship,
Lamb said Food Lion will
rot change its business to
cater to Lowe's customers
specifically and instead will
focus on keeping the store
stocked and in good shape.
"You can't contribute


everything to Lowe's,?'
Lamb said.
The overall economic
climate may also have
something, to do with
increased sales, as people
are spending more at their
local grocery stores instead
of going out to eat.
Lowe's Store Manager
Scott Rubin said that the
store's sales have been
good, and everything he has
heard from the community
about the store has been
positive.
Rubin said. Lowe's has
120 to 140 employees,
most of which are full-time.
With the Wal-Mart
Supercenter on its way,
local business will once
again have to adapt to a
commercial giant bringing
new jobs and increased
competition to the area.

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


Natural changes in the month


Q: Can proper dental
care prevent changes in the
mouth?
A: Proper dental care
will keep your teeth and
mouth healthy, but it will
not halt natural changes that
occur in the mouth as we
age. For instance, teeth can
darken over years because the
enamel on the crowns of teeth
becomes more transparent
and shows more of the dentin
underneath. Also, the longer
we live, the more we use our
teeth and the more they wear.
Chewing, for example, wears
down the biting surface of
the teeth. This type of wear
is called attrition. Abrasion
is wear that occurs just below
the enamel of the crown 'in
the cementum that covers


the roots. This type of wear
is more likely in older people
whose gums have receded.
Receded gums also make
the root more susceptible to
decay.
The skin around the
mouth is also going to
wrinkle. The fact is older
cells contain less water and
tissue fat. Older people who
have lost some or all of their
teeth are also more likely to
experience bone resorption,
or dissolution. Dryness in
the mouth is another naturall
part of aging. Dryness can be
caused by other conditions as
well. So talk with your dentist
about changes you can expect
and also about any problems
you can avoid.

My two cents

Aher commissioner. s actions unjustifiable
Archer commissioner's actions unjustifiable


When you read most newspapers and news
Web sites these days, you will probably be
. confronted by gore and negativity, and you
will quickly learn one lesson: things are getting
worse. A lot of people are in denial, blaming
media outlets for the barrage of
bad news, but I'm not sure this
is a fair accusation. Let's face
it, bad news sells. People want
to know if they need to avoid
leaving their homds that day
for fear of a terrorist attack,
plague or general madness,
and newspapers are, of course, -
happy to sell papers. "
But plenty of newspapers,
such as Alachua County Today,
pride themselves on covering -
all sides both positive
and negative. This is why I Craig Cox
was quite perplexed when a
commissioner at the City of
Archer refused to offer reasonable responses
to me when I wanted to report her side of a
story. She told me we were too negative with
a previous article, and "the City of Archer has
nothing more to say" to us. She informed me
that the city officials did not want me to write
anything about Archer.
I was nearly speechless. I had to repeat her
words to ensure I had not misheard her, but to
my surprise, she never corrected herself. I told
her that the story I was covering was important
to our readers, who are also the people she
was, elected to represent. I told her our readers
wanted to know the truth whether that looks
bad for her or not and I was going to write
the story with or without her quotes. She quickly
rebutted, saying "I hope nobody else talks to


you!"
Is this the manner a public official should be
interacting with the media, who are merely here
to inform the public about important issues?
This commissioner apparently wants, a
closed government where media
cannot interfere. So, in my quest to
uncover the rest of the story, I called
Other public officials, both past and
present, to find out what was going on,
only to discover that lips were sealed
because this particular commissioner
is threatening a lawsuit for comments
-opinions made by other public
officials. What a nightmare! Not only
is she refusing to offer her insight into
issues concerning her citizens, but her
actions are forcing other officials into
a comer. Not that these officials don't
have a right to talk to the media, but
they want to avoid the legal fees and
inconveniences that are pre-packaged
with lawsuits.
I am disgusted by her actions. After telling
her I would have to report the story without her
comments, and I questioned whether she was
representing Archer residents well, she finally
told me she wanted to see positive stories about
Archer in the newspaper.
So, I guess the question I have is, would you
rather see negative, but accurate, news about
your government, or try to act like you live in a
utopian society where government officials are
infallible and-everyone is happy?
Think about it.

Points to be made
I write this letter to make three
points I did not get to make at
the June 15, 2009 Alachua City
Commission. I had been granted an
additional three minutes to speak,
but when that time came the person
granting that request abruptly and
arbitrarily withdrew it. The action
was so about face arbitrary that a
fellow commissioner graciously and
wisely seemed to see a need to soften
the blow. It's probably hard to picture
but it was another one of those
behaviors that makes you wonder...
how we got this far. This was not the
first time I have observed premature
beha' ior from this person and I was
briefly angered but remembered the
source. After adjournment, I went up
and shared my three thoughts with
that person and it is important for me
to share them with the community,
primarily because of the first point I
make below.
On Saturday January 13, 2009
their were separate surprise birthday
celebrations for two National
Treasures of Alachua. One is Mrs.
Mary Marks (one of my beloved
godmothers), and the other is Ms.
Connie Canney, an amazing artist and
Alachua Activist that I have come to
admire and respect. These young
women, both 80 have given so much
to our community in different ways
and deserve recognition as elders of
the metropolis village of Alachua.
Mama Mary, as she is lovingly called
by the several generations of her
children and others she has guided
and nurtured with her tough love,
still gets around to see about anybody
and everybody she can. Ms. Connie,
spry bey ond her years has the energy,
courage and care to raise important
issues and not be afraid of the
repercussions that often comes with
not agreeing with or singing praises
about everything and everyone. All
hardworking, caring people deserve
praise but Connie helps them not to
rest on their laurels and to remember
that there is yet much to be done.
My hats off to yop ladies and happy
birthday again. With you. children
of generations to come will benefit
from your respective energy. lo\e.
and courage. We need more like you.
I want to suggest or ask Alachua
city officials to consider announcing
important issues on the agenda.
such as the forthcoming budget
workshops in an insert in the utility
bills. It's cheaper than newspaper ads
(though I'm not suggesting we not
use ads) and will reach many.more
people because many don't pick up
the paper in time and rushing in the
post office or library often don't
see or read the notices posted there.
Notices in the utility bills were tried,
with the CATS program and didn't
take long to include; they also did
not increase the cost of postage on
the bills. Finally, the High Springs
Herald should pot be the only print
media that provided notice of the
important budget discussions as was
the case for the June 15 meeting.
I believe it is not only important
for people to work together for
the common good, despite their
differences, it is just as important
for Alachua County and its cities to
foster friendly relations and support


each others outreach efforts. I was
disappointed that the County's
outreach and budget workshops
held at Irby Elementary School
was attended by people from High
Springs but we did not have one
City of Alachua staff member or

Paying respect to a great
American hero, one of the last
WVII veterans
I was honored to attend the
funeral of a great American hero,
Clair Chafin, from Archer, Fla.,
along with several hundred other
people paying their respects.
Mr. Chafin started the Gator
Marines at the University of Florida
and helped start the Young Marines.
one of whom was voted and earned
the top young marine in the United
States and she just turned 15.
Mr. Chafin was in construction
and worked fixing up houses for
poor and needy people who could
not afford to pay for services he did
it free.
He was a WWII veteran
who fought for our freedom.
This American hero raised his
children. grandchildren, and great
grandchildren to be great heroes and
great role models for Americans. We
need more families like this one.
I was honored to be invited by
the family to Mr. Chafin's funeral.
and wish to thank them for allowing
me to take part in honoring this great
American hero.
The next time you see a great
WWII, Korean. Viemam. Gulf War
or Iraq Freedom veteran, thank them
for our freedom, freedom is not free.

refused to show in person on

Grapski called on the
likes of Florida Governor
Charlie Crist, State Attorney
Bill Cervone and Sheriff
Sadie Darnell to file
criminal charges against
Chapman. After having
been copied on a series of
e-mail communications,
Cervone took the liberties of
clarifying the public records
law in his eyes.
Cervone recited a
portion of, Florida Statutes
Chapter 119.07(2)(a) which
states, "As an additional
means of inspecting or
copying public, records, a
custodian of public records
may provide access to
public records by remote

Cervone said he did not
intend to get involved with
the dispute between Grapski

Bruce Borders was
honored to be able to attend
his funeral (memorial
service) at Trinity United

Gainesville with several
hundred people who came
to pay their respects to
a great American hero.
Ninety-percent didn't even
know Clair Chafin, but
they knew he was a true

to show their respects to the
family.
There ,were World
War II veterans who had
served with Chafin, from
everywhere, including New

New Jersey, Virginia,
Massachusetts, and Ohio.
His commanding
general in WWII was there
and spoke. One of his
World War II comrades,
Jay Julian, drove from
Pennsylvania with his
wife and took about 140
pictures, which the CVS of
Alachua printed up for free.
The High Springs
Fire Department escorted
Bruce Borders and Ace

deserves our support and
respect. Along with Riggall
was firefighters Kyle Lewis
and Alex Alderman.
Chafin was laid to rest

A message from the desk of


Sheriff Sadie Darnell

Be pool smart


Summer is officially here.
Along with the sun and warm
weather comes 'Florida's
leading killer of children under
five years of age.
Drowning is the number
one cause of death in Florida,
Arizona, and Californi, and
the number two leading killer
of children in several other
states. For every drowning,
there are 11 near drowning
mncidents, many of which result
in permanent brain damage.


If you have a pool in your
yard, please take the following
precautions to protect yoir
children from this danger.
1) Never, EVER, leave
3 our child unattended in or near
the \water. e\en for a moment.
if \ou must lea e the pool area,
take) our child with you.
2) ;ost and enforce rules
such as: No Running, No
Pushing, and Never Swim
Alone.
3) If a child goes missing,


check the pool first. Seconds
count, in preventing death by
Drowning.
S 4)Install a fence to separate
your house from the pool. Use
self-closing gates that self-
:latch, with the latches higher
than your toddler's reach.
5) Never leae a pool
cover partially in place while
swimming. Children can get
trapped beneath it.
6) Keep rescue equipment
and a telephone lith emergency


numbers by the pool..
7) Avoid air-filled
swimming aids. They are not a
replacement for a certified life
vest.
8) Teaching yoir child
how to swim does not ensure
your child's safety in the water.
ALWAYS supervise children in
the pool.
SDrowning can happen to
anyone. Be smart about pool
safety and enjoy the summer.

B2 ALACHUA CouNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, JUNE 25, 2009



Through the merits of Jesus Christ


Saint Peter gives us useful
advice in his first epistle,
chapter 2, verse 12, where he
writes, "keep your behavior
excellent among the Gentiles,
so that in the thing in which
they slander you as evildoers,
they may on account of your
good deeds, as they observe
them, glorify God in the day
of visitation. "
When Saint Peter wrote
this, the early Christians
were being falsely accused
of immoral practices such
as incest, cannibalism, and
holding secret meetings and
teaching secret doctrines
to undermine the Roman
Empire. These accusations
resulted in the belief that this
new religious sect (called
Christianity) was a danger
to society. The reactions of
unbelievers fueled the fire of
persecution against the early
Christians. We all know of
stories about the martyrs
who died for the Faith, but
few of us have studied how
the early Church survived
and responded to these false
charges.
Persecution and slander
still take place today, not only
from outside the Church but
also from within, which was
just the opposite in St. Peter's
day. Things have changed
and certainly not for the better.


SHARE


We no longer find ourselves
responding to unbelievers
with a clear presentation of the
Gospel, instead we engage in
conversations
with other
Christians,
attempting
to justify our
decision to
belong to a
particular
denomination.
It's time
to realize that
our Christian
calling is to
walk in the THE VEN.

rc


Christ, not for belonging
to a local. congregation at.
Ephesus, Galatia, Corinth,
or Thessalonica. The
unbelievers didn't care where
the believers, met; what
drove them to murder was
the identification with the
person and teachings of Jesus
Christ that each Christian
had. His resurrection brought
about a wave of persecution,
because in His Ascension,
His presence actually was
multiplied in the earth

YOUR CHURCH I


through those who believed
and proclaimed His Gospel.
What's been lost in
our time is that personal
identification of
Christians with
their Savior. We
have to be willing
to abandon the
false honor of our
political, social,
and religious
labels and realize
that the only
identification
which will
shine as a light
OHN.E. in a dark and
RE perverse world is
nglican our identification
nesville. as sons and
of the daughters of our
iscopal Heavenly Father,
through the
merits of Jesus


Christ. Through the Holy
Spirit we were baptized into
a heavenly family, an eternal
relationship with the Triune
God,. and through this very
real union and adoption in
grace, we share in the very
life of God.
Saint Peter also describes
the members of the Church
as "living stones built up
as a spiritual house." Our
present life is not identified
by religious affiliation, but
with a living relationship

with our Heavenly Father,
and with one another, united
in this fellowship through the
Holy Spirit.
When we accept the truth
of this union with God and
with one another, we have
taken a giant leap forward in
seeing the emptiness of our
religious labels and the futility
of justifying our affiliations
with institutions rather than
with God. We're suddenly
set free to live as redeemed
and adopted children of God,
who are inspired to share the
Gospel with those who are
ignorant and unbelieving.
We discover that living
in this fellowship and union
with God is by far more deep
and honorable than anything
that comes from wearing our
social or religious badges.
We're inspired to see the
world for what it is-a world
that was created, inhabited,
and, redeemed, in the person
of Jesus Christ, We see
ourselves and all others as


those who were so loved by
God, that He sent His only
begotten Son into the world
to save them, not to condemn
them. Thus, Saint Peter could
instruct the Church to "submit
to every human institution,
whether to a king as the one
in authority, or to governors
as sent by God." Without
seeing the saving work of
Christ as being inclusive for
the whole human race, St.
Peter's words would have
been ridiculous, since it was
the kings and the governors
who were persecuting
and putting to death the
believers! It's no surprise
that he ends his introductions
with, "honor all men. Love
the brotherhood. Fear God
Honor the King. "
Our calling is simple.
We must know the truth as
proclaimed in the Gospel
of Christ and we must
commit ourselves to no other
agenda fhan proclaiming
that truth to our generation


without compromise. This
requires effort learning and
obedience to the truth but
in our faithfulness to this
calling, we will discover the
reality of the power of the
Gospel to turn the hearts of
men. True change will never
take place in the church or in
the world as long as there ar'
those who think the church
is an institution placed in
this world to entertain and
imitate the dying culture
around us. There will. bb
those who resist the Gospel
and persecute those who:
proclaim it, but Rome didn't
fall in a day and the history
of western civilization wasn't
written overnight. The light
of Christ shines as brightly
today as it did on the first day
of creation-ours is to walk
in the light and bring others
to the knowledge and l9ve:
of Jesus Christ. Christians
should have no other agenda;

Chapter Seven by ay Hively ,


"Good morning, Mr. President," Peggy chirped as she awoke eact
morning in South Dakota. Seeing President Washington the first
thing every day was very special. Sometimes at night when she
went to bed, she could hardly wait to get to sleep so she could
wake up and see the President.
Peggy did'not visit Mrs. Potter for more than a week. She was
busy learning to piece material for her mother's quilt. Peggy
could not make small.stitches, but her mother never complained.
While Peggy was learning to quilt, Mike was taking music lessons
When he learned that Mrs. Foster had a guitar and could teach
music, Mike begged for lessbns..
Mrs. Jansen was happy that Peggy and Mike were learingthe
lessons of life.
At night when Peggy's father came home, he told about worldking
on the mountain. He talked about the Keystone Boys and about

Things to Thiink About and Do -
A. What kind of artist was Mr. Borglum? Using clay or
some other molding material, make your own copy'
of Mount Rushmore.
B. What is the height of Mount Rushmore? How tall are
the heads of the Presidents on the mountain? How
tall is Mr. Lincoln's nose?


KB m o] (- i Hl~IoIi[o^ Lj H HB-B n


h Mr r-
Borglum,-
the artist
who was in /
charge of carving -
Mount Rushmore. Peggy liked
hearing about Mr. Borglum. She thought
he might be a bit strange, like Mrs. Potter.
Her father promised to take Peggy to the top of the mountain
s. one day. He said she would have to climb more than 500 steps
Sto get there.
One morning Peggy decided to,go see Mrs. Potter rather than
.work on the quilt.
It didn't take her long to get to the bighouse. Mrs. Potter was
sitting on her porch reading a book. Peggy stood in the road and
called'out to the old lady. Mrs. Potter stared over the top of her
glasses and then motioned for Peggy tQ join her.
As soon as she was seated in the wicker chair, Peggy looked up at
Mount Rushmore. She never got tired of the mountain. In the past
two or three days, she had begun to see Mr. Lincoln's face. Every
day, the face took on personality.
Turning to her hostess, Peggy asked what Mrs. Potter was reading.
The old lady put a strip of paper in the book to mark her place,
and then laid the book in her lap. It Was a book about Abraham
Lincoln, she said. Peggy's eyes popped wide open. She had been
hoping to find a book about all the Presidents who would be on
the mountain.
Mrs. Potter asked Peggy how old she was and if she could read.
Peggy said she was 10 years old and that she was a good reader.
Mrs. Potter asked if she had any books. Peggy said she had books
back in Nebraska, but the Bible was the ohly book the family
had brought to South Dakota.
Then Peggy told Mrs. Potter that she would like to read about
the Presidents. The old lady looked over the top of her glasses
again and said she had many books about the Presidents. But,
she said, most of them might be too hard for Peggy to read.
Peggy said she would like to try.
Mrs. Potter was silent for a moment, then she made a suggestion.
Peggy thought it was the best idea in the world.
