Hawthorne recognizes Watson


By PATRICIA HOYOS
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE The City of
Hawthorne recognized Alachua City
Manager Clovis Watson Jr. at Tuesday's
City Commission meeting for his
contribution to the city.
Hawthorne Mayor Eleanor Kandall and
Commissioner DeLoris Roberts presented
Watson with a plaque for his commitment
and countless hours of
assistance.
Several Hawthorne
residents walked up to ,
Watson after the meeting
to personally thank him
for his efforts.
"It's nice to go outside
of your boundaries and be
embraced," Watson said.
He has been working
with Hawthorne officials
for the past .couple- of
months .for no cost, even
though he was offered Watson
payment for his 'services, .
he said.
Watson has been counseling city
officials during a time in which the city is
facing difficulties such as a budget crunch
and city manager transition.
He knows not everyone has always
agreed with what he had to say, but Watson
SUBWAY:
Continued from page Al


said he has always given his professional
opinion about what is best for the
community.
While he is honored that the city showed
its appreciation for his hard work, Watson
did not volunteer his time and efforts just
to receive recognition. He said it is more
than a job for him. It's passion for helping
people in Alachua County. He feels he has
the wisdom, drive and commitment to
make a difference.
"We are all a
government for the
people," he said. He hopes
if other municipalities
encounter rough times,
Hawthorne will share its
resources and assist, just
as he and Alachua have
done. If cities collaborate
with each other, they all do
better, he said.
His main goal was to
help the city become a
self-servicing community.
The city has had troubles
in the past but is now
experiencing somewhat of
a surplus, he said.
Watson has been Alachua's city
manager since .2002 and is, a lifelong
Alachua resident.

Webb said he isn't sure.
how the Walmart Subway

believe the new store will
have any major impact,--,

traffic to the area, but it
could also draw foot traffic

Webb said.
"I'm all for this

said. "I think having more

is consistent, with- the

found inside the revolver,
according to the report.
Davis admitted to
being at The Tree and
shooting one of the guns,
but he denied shooting at
Washington. Davis claimed
he shot a single bullet in the
air, although he admitted he
fired the weapon recklessly,
according to the report.


Police arrested Davis
for attempted, murder,
improper exhibition of a
firearm and discharging a
firearm while intoxicated.
He is being held at the
Alachua County Jail on a
$600,000 bond.
This is not the first
incident to occur at The
Tree, however. Some
-people sit under the large
oak' tree and use it for
legal activities such as


board games and friendly
'conversations, but rampant
drug and alcohol use, and
violence near the tree have
some residents concerned.
On Feb. 16, 2008,
Demario Robinson, 22, was
beaten up near The Tree,
and-his mother said she is
fed up with the violence.
"It's time someone
takes a stand and puts a stop
to some of this violence,"
Evelina Robinson wrote
in a letter to the City of
Alachua in 2008.
Robinson has contacted
Alachua police.as well as
the city manager to bring
awareness to the issue.
."This problem should
have been addressed :a
long time ago, before
this violence got so out
of control," she wrote in
a May 2008 letter to the
editor of Alachua County
Today.
If The Tree was located
somewhere else in Alachua,
it would have been shut
down quickly, Robinson
said.


City Manager Clovis
Watson Jr. responded to the
calls to stop the violence,
saying he would work with
the APD and citizens to
stop the criminal activities
near The Tree.
"We think everyone
in Alachua is important,"
Watson said. "I will
look at this issue in a
comprehensive manner. We
just have to look at ways to
work with the people.
"We have some good
citizens, sitting down there
minding their own business'
and enjoying themselves.
But unfortunately, at times,
some people bring trouble
to The Tree, and that causes
a bit of concern. We want
to be fair to everyone in
addressing these issues,"
the city manager 'said in
2008.
Calls to Watson
regarding the recent
violence were not
immediately returned prior
to press time.

Archer setting guidelines


for meetings


By HOLLY KANE
Today Reporter
ARCHER Commissioners
in this small town of about 1,400
residents seemingly attempted
to bury the hatchet last week as
they met in a public workshop to
discuss rules for behavior during
meetings. '
The workshop was scheduled
after tensions amongst
commissioners and the city's
administration reached a breaking
point several weeks ago, leading:
to the possible censure of Archer
commissioner Laurie Costello.
Interim City Manager Ward
Scott had originally discussed
with Mayor Leann Slaughter
the possibility'. of' censuring
Costello because she allegedly
badgered him, at a weekend event.
A motion to censure is used' by
governing bodies when a member
of the governing body harasses,
embarrasses and humiliates other
members, according to Robert's
Rules of Order. l
Costelklf threatened to take
legal action against the City of
Archer and the Commission if
comments concerning the censure
were not withdrawn..
In lieu of admonishing
.Costello, Archer interim city.
.manager Ward Scott proposed
that commissioners meetto clear.
the air and. set. guidelines" for
commission meetings.
"I'm trying to calm it down,"
Scott said. "I'm not trying to stir"
it up." -
"It was good because they sat
themselves down and talked to
each other," Scott said.
Scott is currently studying


the minutes from the meeting
to determine the interests and
concerns of commissioners. He,
wants to encourage "good civility
protocol and guidelines."
The commission focused on
what should or should not be on
an agenda and how it is to be'
structured. Commissioners also
discussed the nature of citizen
comments, the scope of the
mayor's authority and limiting
themselves to addressing the
issues at hand.
"We have cleaned the slate
and put it back in the laps of the
commissioners," the interim city
manager said.
As city manager, Scott said
he recommends rules by which
the commissioners should govern
themselves.
"That's > all I'ni- doing," he
said. "It was never about me and
Costello?'
According to Costello, the
July 2 meeting "went very well,"
and the Commission decided to
"move. forward and work as a
team."
"Hopefully everything will
work out right,",Scott said.
Ironically, although discord
in Archer's city hall :seems
to be running high lately, a
civility pledge is. posted in its
commission chambers. On the
front of the podium, facing the
commission, the- plaque states,
"We' will, be respectful of one
another even when we disagree.
We will direct all .comments to
the issues. We will avoid personal.
attacks. 'Politeness costs so little'
-Abraham Lincoln."

his savings, investments and real estate (other than the
home he lives in). To qualify for the extra help, he
must be receiving Medicate and also have:
* Income limited to $16,245 for an individual or $21,
855 for a married couple living together. Even if
his annual income is higher, he still may be able to
receive some help with monthly premiums, annual


deductibles and prescription co-payments. Some
examples where income may be higher include if he
or his wife:
*. Support other family members who live with
IfHa avmIamings from work; or
Live ini Alaska or Hawaii; and
* Resources limited to $12,510 for an individual
or $25,010 for a married couple living together.

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

Dental treatment in stressful times


Q: I'm. going through
hard financial times. Is it
okay to skip dental treatment
for a while?
A: The economic
downturn has forced lifestyle
changes on many people.
If you haye. to give up
something, k e*(i1 visits to,
your health care lptyiders
should be at the botom of
your list. In fact, the stress
of dealing with a layoff or
uncertainty at work, the
prospect of home foreclosure
and other concerns can' cause
health problems, including in
your mouth.
Stress causes surges of
energy which the body uses for
its fight-or-flee mechanism.
It takes a toll throughout
your body, even on your


teeth. Dentists, for instance,
are reporting' increased
instances of cracked and
worn-down teeth, headaches
and jaw pain, all a result of a
condition called bruxism, or
teeth clenching and grinding,
Which your body will do at
night as a way of burning off
excess energy. Where normal
chewing can.-put pressure
of 20 to 40 pounds on each
tooth, bruxism can put 250
pounds of pressure on a tooth.
Your dentist will have
some recommendations if
teeth grinding is an increasing
problem for you. Your
dentist is a trusted. member
of your health care team. Be
frank with him about your
circumstances and see what
he advises.

Rib-eating contest: 14 ribs in five minutes


and a petting zoo. The Alachua spray park was a
popular spot as children splashed in the refreshing
water as their parents cooled off from nearly 100
degree temperatures beneath shady oak trees.
Bingo was a popular activity as it offered an air
conditioned venue inside the gymnasium, with the
Alachua Senior Cha-Cha-Chas providing spirited
entertainment.
The annual event offers opportunities for many
local charities, clubs and non-for-profits to raise
funds for their programs, and more than 80 vendors
and concessions were at the event offering food,
crafts and other items to visitors.
Patriotism was a common thread among
comments offered by local .officials prior to the
,fireworks show. Mayor Bonnie Burgess and
City Manager Clovis Watson Jr. each expressed
gratitude to the military for their sacrifices .in
keeping Americans free. High Springs resident
Antoinette Hunt sang a patriotic tribute and the
National Anthem, setting the mood for.the rousing
i fireivorks display to come.
After all, was said and done, the city spent about
$100'less than the $69,000 set aside for the event;
$40,000 from the city budget, $18,000 in cash


sponsorships and $11,000 in in-kind donations.
The fireworks alone cost $30,000 leading some to
question the city's use of taxpayers' money.
Coerper said the spending is an investment in
the city, noting that it is a boon to local business.
Calderwood said that the money was also
important to give something back to the people of
Alachua.
"We consider it a priority to have a day of
activities for families," Calderwood said.
She said she beard from many people who were
thankful the city had something like this planned
for them.
Among the activities was the rib-eating contest,
where one man scarfed down 14 ribs in five
minutes to claim first prize. The event also featured
various rides that would be unwise to jump on after
eating any amount of ribs. Out by the stage, bands
entertained the ever-growing crowd, who were
spread out on blankets and seated in lawn chairs on
the expansive soccer fields.
Aside from a'scuffle that happened in the early
evening, tlhe event went without mishap. (See
related article: Fireworks before the fireworks,
below). Calderwood said she was pleased with the
mannerly way people acted at the event and
, their courteousness and patience as the griss
lot slowly emptied following the fireworks.

Alachua Alitel closes

store, moves to Gainesville


By HOLLY KANE
Today Reporter
ALACHUA The Alltel
store at the intersection of
Main Street and U.S. 441
in Alachua is closing and
relocating operations to a
Verizon store in Gainesville
to "maximize. resources,"
said Verizon wireless
spokesperson Chuck
Hamby. -
As of next week, the
store will be closed and
employees will transfer to a


verizon store. ne services
offered at the Alachua
Alltel store will be moved
to a Verizon store on Archer
Road in Gainesville.
The closure and
relocation is announced
on a sign in the window of
the Alachua store. When
questioned, employees were
not authorized to talk to
media.
Verizon--acquired Alltel
in a $28 billion merger in
January, making Verizon the
largest wireless carrier in
the nation.


Thne two companies
came together because their
network footprints, the
area covered by a wireless
carrier, were a good fit.
Alltel covered areas such
as the Panhandle of Florida
that Verizon didn't reach.
All Alltel stores in
Florida will be converted
into Verizon stores or closed,
but Alltel will remain in the
western United States.
"Alltel will cease to
be in the state of Florida,"
Hamby said.

ALACHUA
Temperatures were
blazing-at Alachua's July
4 celebration, but tempers
seemed to be running
higher at least among a
few in attendance. The
annual event that attracts
thousands of fun-seekers
remained largely incident
free except for an early
evening scuffle. The fight
ended nearly as quickly as it
began and sent three adults
to the Alachua County Jail.
The fight broke out with


at the City of Alachua's July 4th celebration Saturday


a crowd of nearly a hundred
people surrounding it in a
midway between vendors.
Exactly what precipitated
the physical altercation is
still unclear, but it ended
with 40-year-old Hans
C. Pfalzgraf lying on the
ground and another man
tackled by police. Even
after offfiers rushed in to
stop the fray, a shouting
match ensued, landing a
fourth man in handcutTs.
In all, Alachua police
placed four people m
handcuffs, but Alachua
County Jail records only
showed three men in


custody. It is believed the
fourth individual arrested
was a minor.
Hans Christian
Pfalzgraf. 40, and Patrick
Christian Pfalzgraf, 18,
both of Gainesville as well
as 19-year-old High Springs
resident Justin Simmons
were booked in the Alachua
County Jail. All three were
charged with Disorderly

probation at the time of the
incident, remained in jail

the getaway vehicle and
quickly located it in the
area of NW 133rd Terrace
and NW 154th Ave., also
known as "The Tree".
Officers stopped
the vehicle and found
a television in the back
seat. One of the suspects
was discovered to be the
elderly citizen's grandson,
Anthony Fulston, 17, of
Alachua.
Fulston admitted he
stole the television and
a firearm, and officers
located the loaded firearm
in the vehicle.
One .of the suspects,
Chanci Miller, 19, of
Alachua, is currently
on probation with the
Department of Cqrrections
and is a convicted felon.
Miller had several
bullets in his pocket that
fit the same caliber firearm
found in the vehicle.
The other' suspect,
Rance Shannon, 18, of High
Springs, was the driver. "
Officers confirmed with
Fulston's grandmother that
no person was allowed in
the residence, and officers
took the suspects into
custody.
While continuing the
investigation, officers
responded to a residence
in. the Alachua Hills
, neighborhood in reference
to another burglary.
When officers
*:responded to the new
location, the victim stated
that someone had. entered
the residence and removed
a large television and a
firearm. *
The victim was able to
confirm that the television
found in the three suspects'
.kvehiele was the one, stolon


were charged with armed
burglary, grand theft and
theft of a firearm, among
other charges.'
Miller was also
changed with possession
of a firearm/ammunition
by a convicted felon and
violation of probation.
Miller and Shannon
were taken to the Alachiua
County Jail, and Fulston
was taken to the Juvenile
.Detention Center.
APD Detective Carrie
Lund said finding the
trio can be attributed to
a- combination of three
aspects.
"We caught them with
a little bit of luck, good
police work and good
timing," she said.
APD Detective Patrick
Barcia Jr. said this case is
a perfect example of how
alert citizens can prevent
criminals from getting
away with illegal activities
and hurting people.
"This situation- could
have taken a turn for the
worse if the suspects had
decided to use the firearms,"
said APD Detective Patrick
Barcia Jr. "But due to quick
thinking on the part of City
of Alachua employees
and being observant of
suspicious activity, we were
able to close two cases very
quickly and safely. This
is what we (APD) have
been talking about with
having people in the city of
Alachua report suspicious
activities and conveying it
to law enforcement."

Sheriff Sadie Darnell

Lightning safety


300 lightning-related injuries
reported. Already this year, 16
people have lost their lives,
two of them here in Florida.,
Nearly 100% of the fatalities
occur outdoors, which puts
Floridians and visitors to our
state at particular risk because
of the many available outdoor
recreational activities.'
When outside, be on the
lookout tor thunderstorm
clouds. Lightning can strike
10 miles in any direction of a


storm's center, so if you,can
hear thunder, then you are at
risk of a lightning strike. If you
hear thunder or see lightning,
immediately move to a fully
enclosed shelter or to a vehicle.
If lightning strikes your
location, the electric current
will be displaced through the
wiring in the house or the
car so avoid touching radios,
corded telephones, televisions,
computers or other electronic
devices. Stay away from


bathtubs, sinks, and showers.
Also, in the home, stay away
from windows to avoid direct
strikes.
To avoid dangerous
weather, check forecasts to
plan your vacations and visit
places that have shelter nearby.
Lightning is dangerous, but if

A rule of LIFE


Ia the verses from the
14* chapter of Saint John,
Christ made promise to
his Disciples about the
Father sending another
Comforter. But before this
promise, Jesus sets down
a requirement that all of
His followers are to "keep
his commandments," As
believers, we are said to be
"dead to the law;" but only
dead to it as a contract, we
are still alive to it as a rule
of life. 'In other words, not
only do we keep the letter
of the law, but we also keep
God's laws in their spiritual
intention and purpose just
as Jesus shoWed them
during His life and ministry.
We can, say that the
'marriage' contract', in
effect, Iad been between
the belivqr and "The:Law
of Moses" is dissolved, but
it has only been undone so
"that he may be married.
to another, even to the
Lord Jesus Christ, and
through him may, in the
quality of his Spouse, be
enabled to. ."bring forth
fruit unto God." Believers
can show how much they

n ,.;a-' .- -


love their Lord by obeying
, His commandments. In
fact, we must constantly
try ourselves by this test.
Obedience
and love are
inseparable
from each
other, and the
command that
Jesus gave
the Disciples
has to be
understood to
be given'to all
the followers


of Christ in
all ages.
T h e
D i s c ip.le s
were about
to, lose Jesus'


but he prom


ised, that,


"if they would obey
'his 'commandments, he
would pray the Father for
them, and that the Father
would send them another
Comforter to abide .with
them for ever."
Here we have ,to
understand that the Holy
Ghost, hat Christ is talking
L - ' -


about, is not a quality, or
an operation, but a distinct
Person: not as a Comfort,
but a Comforter who comes
from the Father,
in answer to
the intercession
of the Son,
-to abide in
the hearts ,of
God's obedient
people. This
is like in. the
days told to
us in the Old
Testament; that


God abode in
the tabernacle
and then in the
temple. When
God did this,
He was present
in the bright
cloud, the


Shechinah. The Spirit of
God now descends and
dwells in the hearts of
Christ's obedient followers,
showing' them His glory
and imparting His blessings
to meet all of their needs.
We, like the Apostles, are
subjected to trials, and
are called both to act and
suffer for our Lord; but, the

Holy Spirit shall give us'
all the comfort and support,
we need and will make us
more than conquerors over
all our oppressors. He
will never leave us, until
He has accomplished in us
everything that God, in his
unbounded love and mercy,
has ordained for us.
This divine Comforter
is only known to Christ's
obedient followers: "The
world knows him not, nor
can, in fact, receive him."
As "the Spirit of truth" he
spoke in all the prophets,
but the ungodly world
.cast his word behind their
backs. They did the same
in the 'days of our Lord .
and when he spoke by the ,
Apostles. And, the worldly
do. the same to this day.
Their hearts are closed
against him., But, He comes
to the obedient followers
of Christ. In their hearts
He "sheds abroad the love
of God:" and to them .He
"witnesses their adoption
into God's family" and in
them He is "an earnest of
their eternal inheritance."'
If a man professes to
love Jesus Christ as his
Savior and then dishonors


and denies his Lord
through his words and
actions, the Lord will say to
these people, "Why call ye
me Lord, Lord, and do not
the things which I say?"
"Without holiness no man
shall See the Lord. If you
look in Holy Scripture, you
will see that our Lord gave
these promises on purpose,
to encourage our obedience.
We have to .realize 'How
highly we 'are privileged!
How wonderfully we are
made to differ from the
world around us! We have
no less than a divine Person
sent down to dwell in us as
our Comforter! And this
marvelous gift is bestowed
upon us, in answer to our
Savior's intercessions.
Must we. not then, testify
in' every possible way,
our love to.. him? .He has.
done these things for us,
unasked, and, we 'must do
for Him, the things which
He commands.' That is
what He requires, from us.
and those things will be
accepted as "proof, of our
'love to Him.
If we're giving
ourselves up to the Lord
in holy and unreserved


obedience, then look to
heaven, and there you will
see the Saviour interceding
for you. There too, see the
Holy Spirit of God, ready to
come down at the very first
suggestion of the Father's
will, to take possession
of your heart and -to make
your soul His habitation.
He will come with all His
comfort. and .support and
there will be nothing in the
whole universe that will
be able to depress you or
to stop your progress in
the. divine life. With Him
you will enjoy the sweetest
fellowship, the kind that
no worldly man could
ever imagine. The Holy
Spirit will prepare you for
the enjoyment of God in
, heaven. You've seen how
the promises of Christ
were accomplished for the
Apostles and the blessings
that those promises
imparted and to those who
trust in them, not one jot or
tittle of them shall ever fail.
