High-tech battery plant looks to energize Alachua


By CRAIG COX
Today, Reporter
ALACHUA An Orlando-
based company wants to jolt
Alachua's economy with a billion
watt yearly output lithium-ion
battery factory, complete with


hundreds of high paying jobs and
national attention.
Planar Energy Devices
recently contracted an abandoned
battery plant in Phoenix
Commercial Park, and Planar is
looking to manufacture batteries
for electric and hybrid vehicles -


with the help of federal stimulus
dollars. This plant will be the only
large-scale lithium-ion battery
maker outside of Asia, said Chief
Executive Officer Scott Faris.
The company is in the running
for $56 million from the U.S.
Department of Energy, DOE,


and the company has agreed to
match the funding with private
financing.
If the company receives
the money, the plant should
be creating batteries for small
electronics within weeks and
high-tech car batteries within


a year. The billion-watt yearly
capacity will make the facility
one of the largest producers in the
world, Faris said.

Filmmaker brings festival to area


Special lo .4Alachua Counn- Today
Filmmaker Jon Cring brought area residents a peak into his world last week in High Springs. Cring showed the
audience three of his films, and he gave acting and directing workshops.


By HOLLY KANE
Today Reporter

Nashville filmmaker

Jon Russell Cring or-

ganized a film festival

at the Priest Theater in

High Springs Thursday

that included screen-

ings of three of his films

and acting and directing

workshops.


Cring is conducting a nation-
wide tour to premiere the 12 films
he made in 20 months with his
production company, Extra'Ordi-
nary Films.
In addition to showing the
films, he and his cinematographer
wife, Nichole, are teaching work-
shops about acting and directing.
"I'm giving people the nuts
and bolts of making films," Cring
said.
He chose High Springs be-
cause Priest Theater is one of
12 historic movie theaters in the
state; he wants to avoid larger the-
aters because of what he calls the
"corporate influence."
Cring has always been in-
volved in the creative arts. and he
has always made it a family affair.
Originally from Ohio, Cring


travelled the United States from
Washington to Alabama, playing
bass guitar in a family band. His
father. Jonathan Richard Cring,
writes the films' screenplays.
Cring did not attend film
school, but he did produce horror
movies in Nashville. an endeavor
which he did not enjoy.
"It was a very, very frustrating
process," Cring said.
He left Nashville to tell "more
human stories," stories about ordi-
nary people in extraordinary situ-
ations. They're usually autobio-
graphical. taking inspiration from
family and friends.
"Budd," a coming-of-age film,
showed in High Springs Thursday
night to an audience of about a

By ALEX. AUSTtA I
Today Reporter
ALACIHUA Alachua County's real
estate market, like much of the country's,
has been hit hard by the past few years of
sinking sales.
According to a Metro Market Trends
report, Alachua's total real estate sales for
the first five months of 2009 are 33 percent
lower than the same time period last year
and 70 percent lower than in 2006.
The City ofAlachua has seen a 56 percent
dip in sales this year. and it is presenting
problems for developers trying to lay out
plans. On Mlonday, three developers asked
the City Commission for an extension.
City 'Manager Clovis Watson Jr. said


of the harsh economic climate, and the
Commission unanimously approved the
extensions, moving the deadline to June 15,
2012.
The Parker Land Company was one
of the developers asking for an extension.
Zoning for the 598 dwelling units and
250.000 square feet of commercial space on
a 145-acre lot was approved Nov. 21. 2005.
The other two developers, L & L Holding
Company and the Alachua Development
Company. were on similar timelines. The
real estate crash forced all three developers
to adjust and eventually postpone their
plans.

Though their smiles are gone forever,
And their hands we cannot touch ,
Still we have treasured memories
Of those we loved so much.
Each time we see their pictures, they
seem to smile and say,
"Don't cry, I'm only sleeping: We will

Metro Market Trends
owner Al Muller, who
analyzes real estate trends
Sfor a living, said the best
statistic for determining
the health of the real estate
market is single family re-
sales because it indicates
that average families are
comfortable buying and
selling homes again.
In Alachua, Archer,
Gainesville and Newberry,
single family re-sales
have not decreased nearly
as much as total sales -
suggesting that the market
may not be as bad as some
numbers make it look.
High Springs actually has
a significant increase in
single family re-sales of
76 percent for the January
through May time period,
despite overall sales being
down 4 percent. However,
Hawthorne's single family
.re-sales are 44 percent,
which is greater than the 32
percent total decrease.
In the past four years,
sales have shown few signs
of bouncing back, but that
doesn't mean the real estate
market will only continue
to get worse, Muller said.
"The market is just
beginning to stabilize," he
said.
The problem is that
the stabilization will not
happen overnight, and we
don't know how long it's
going to take, Muller said.
The first step to the
market bouncing back
is stabilization. After
stabilization, the next'
step is for the market to
find a solid bottom. A
solid bottom will let the
developers know that there
will be people to buy what
they build. With all of these
steps in place, the market
can began to, strengthen
again.
Calderwood said she
thinks the market will
stabilize in about one year,
and, then Alachu .will
start to see growth again.
However, she expects
developers will be more
cautious in the future, and
that the growth will come
slowly.
Muller said that despite
shrinking sales, there are
indicators that the market is
beginning to settle.

Exemptions for Florida debtors


Special to Alachua County Today
Unfortunately people
sometime spend far more
money than their budget
permits and get themselves
into debt. At times, it can
be writing a check when
there is not enough money
in the bank to cover the
check, but most often debt
arises through the extension
of credit by a credit card
company. When an account
becomes delinquent by
more than 60 days, dunning
letters are written and if the
problem is not resolved, a
lawsuit can be and usually
is filed by the credit card
company, against the debtor.
Since there is no such
thing as debtor's prison in
the United States, the object
of a lawsuit on a delinquent
account is to obtain a
judgment. A creditor cannot
obtain a judgment except
by going through a court
of law, usually the County
Court (more than $5,000 but
less than $15,000), but more
often it is the Small Claims
Division of the County
Court (under $5,000). A
judgment is obtained when
a Judge enters an order
in favor of the creditor
granting the relief requested
by the creditor, which order
is called a judgment.
Afer a judgment is
entered, creditors have.
many ways to obtain, the
moneys awarded them,
such as -the right to garnish
a debtor's wages, or seek
to obtain moneys: from a
debtor's checking or savings
account, or seize and sell a
debtor's personal property,
place a lien on a debtor's
real property and do other
things, within established
limits. But debtors have
rights too; even after a
judgment is entered against
them.
Florida Statute 77.041
provides that a debtor is
exempt from having his
or her wages garnished,
exempt from having money
taken from a bank, savings
and' loan association or
credit union, and exempt
from having other property
taken from them (by way of
seizure and sale, pursuant to
execution on a judgment)
under the following
situations:
1. Head of
Household. Wages cannot
be garnished if the debtor
provides more than one-half
of the 'support for a child
or other dependent and has
net earnings of $500 or less
per week. Even if the debtor.
.earns more than $500 net
per week, the wages cannot
be garnished so long as the
debtor has not agreed, in
writing, to allow the wages
to be garnished;
2. The debtor's only
source of income is from
any of the following:
a) Social Security
benefits;
b) Supplemental
Security Income (SSI)
benefits;
c) Public Assistance;
d) Worker' s
Compensation benefits;
e) Unemployment
Compensation benefits;
f) Veteran's benefits;
g) Retirement or
profit-sharing benefits or
pension money;
h). Life insurance
benefits or cash surrender
value of a life insurance
policy or proceeds of an
annuity contract;
i) Disability income
benefits; or
j) Prepaid College
Trust Fund or Medical
Savings Account.
There are many other
exemptions as well.
However, to obtain the
Exemption, a debtor must
complete a form entitled
'Claim of Exemption and
Request for Hearing' and


go before a judge and ask
a judge .to enter an order
finding, that he or she is, in
fact and as a matter of law,
entitled to the Exemption
sought. Even if money
or property has already
been seized, garnished or
otherwise taken, the Statute
allows a judge to order
the return of the money,
under certain limited
circumstances.


So, the best advice is to
spend wisely and stay within
your budget, but if you find
yourself in a financial bind
and fear losing everything
because of lawsuits from
creditors, know your rights
and protect yourself as best
you can under the law.
The foregoing advice
is provided by the lawyers
at Three Rivers Legal
Services, Inc., a non-profit
corporation that receives
funds from various local


agencies and individuals,
as well as from the federal
government through Legal
Services Corporation
(LSC). For specific
advice on your particular
situation, we suggest that
you consult with a lawyer
of your choosing. If you
cannot afford a lawyer, you
may call your local legal
services office to find out if
you qualify for free, quality
legal assistance.

Part of 'The Tree' falls


By PATRICIA HOYOS
Today Reporter
ALACHUA A crime
hotspot that was the location
of the recent shooting of a
78-year-old man lost part
of its icon when a large
branch of "The Tree" went
crumbling to the ground.
Alachua Police
Department (APD) Chief
of Police Joel DeCoursey
Jr. said the branch probably
broke off naturally because
the large oak tree is so old.
He also believed The Tree,
located near the intersection
of NW 154th Avenue NE
and NW 134th Terrace, has
been struck by lightning in


the past, which could have
weakened the branch.
He said -no one
was injured, when the
incident occurred, but the
"significantly large" branch
did cause an obstruction to
the street next to the tree.
City workers removed
the limb from the ground
Friday to avoid any
problems, and frequenters
of the site quickly resumed
activities.
The Tree is a common
location for Alachua
residents to congregate. It
serves as a "meet and greet"
spot for locals, DeCoursey
said. Unfortunately, certain
individuals have also

This summer, the City
of Alachua will be looking
to donate the area on which

effort to reduce crime.

such as homes, to the area.
More housing in the city
could be positive in more
ways than one, DeCoursey
said.
Even if The Tree
disappears, there will
always be some level of
crime in Alachua, just like
in any other city. People
need to be more aware
of their surroundings and
their property, DeCoursey
added.
"It would really help us

Q: What's the difference
between plaque and tartar?
A: Plaque is the main
enemy' in the mouth. It
is a colorless, sticky film
that builds up on the teeth.
Plaque that's allowed to stay
in the mouth over time will
combine with minerals in
your saliva to form tartar,.
which is also called calculus,
a. term derived from the
Latin for "small pebbles."
Tartar is a hard deposit
on the teeth that can be
removed only at the dentist's
office. Plaque is alive with
bacteria. When you eat, the
bacteria transform the starch
and sugar in food to acids
that eat away your teeth's
enamel. That's the process


that begins decay. This is
why brushing and flossing
after every meal are so
important.
r The technique used to
remove accumulated tartar,
or calculus, is called scaling.
Your dentist or hygienist will
use a hand-held instrument
shaped like a curved spoon;
a sickle, a hoe or a file. The
person doing the scaling will
gently insert the instrument
beneath the gum, press it
firmly against the tooth and
pull toward the crown to
remove the hardened plaque.
-Talk with your dentist about
ways to prevent the buildup
of damaging plaque and
tartar.

A greenfield is land
that is not developed, such
as agriculture land. The
building Planar plans to use
was recently designated
a brownfield, which is an
abandoned or underused
facility. The brownfield
designation allows
companies that move into
the building to receive tax
breaks, also through federal
stimulus funding.
If the company receives
funding .from the DOE,
the company will employ
about 150 people in the
first 12 months and nearly
400 people in the future,
Faris said.
"These won't be low-

."Because this is .a highly

said.
In addition to the
hundreds of direct jobs
created by this plant, a

study predicted Planar will
create 1,500 indirect jobs,
Faris said.
"I've had many

Tagging and licensing



fees increase


By HOLLY KANE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS Motor vehicle
registration and title fees will increase
between 35 percent and 100 percent
effective .Sept. 1, said Department of
Licensing and Billing Director Rita Troiano
in a High Springs City Commission meeting
Thursday.
A title transfer will increase from
$29.75 to $70. The cost of a new plate will
increase from $110 to $225 for the metal


plate alone. Annual registration fees, which
are determined by weight, will increase 35
percent.
The revenue will go to the state in order
to balance the budget, while the county
keeps a service fee.
"We hate imposing it just as much as
they hate having to pay for it," Troiano said.
Troiano recommends citizens buy early
and get 'renewals -.and registrations before
the increased fees go into effect Sept. 1.

open the Alachua plant, but
not on such a large scale.
"There are a variety of
options we've been looking
at in case we don't get the
money," he said. "The
employment wouldn't
be nearly as significant,
though. The stimulus
dollars allow us to retool
the facility to manufacture
larger format cells for
autos."
Although China and
other Asian countries have
incentives to lure assembly
jobs away from America,
Faris said this battery
plant is on a level playing
field with those countries
because battery production
is such an automated
process.
* China's advantage in
manufacturing is its large
population, which allows
the country to charge low
wages, but because this


plant will employ such
few low-skill workers, the
company has less incentive
to move to outsource jobs,
he said.
"Sending jobs to Asia
has been the easy thing to
do," Faris said. "It was the
path of least resistance, but
to sustain long-term value
of a company, you can't
offshore everything." ;
Faris said the new
battery plant will bring
national attention, and
it means more than just
another development" in
Alachua.
"I want to emphasize
that this is a national asset,"
he said. "We rely heavily
on Asian products, but this
will help us reduce our
dependence. Hopefully the
DOE will see this value
and help us get this project
going."

Sheriff Sadie Damrnell

Summer time burglary


Unfortunately, crime does
not take a summer vacation.
The FBI reports general crime
rates increase 10 percent in
the summertime. Burglary is a
popular crime during summer.
Keeping your home and
belongings properly secured
'* will reduce the opportunity
for crime in our county. Even
with temperatures soaring into
the 100s burglars are willing
to sweat the beat to steal and
use many tricks to gain entry
to homes.


Keeping your windows,
doors and garage closed and
locked will reduce chances of
thieves choosing )our house.
If you open windows for fresh
air. remember to close them
before leaving to mow, swim
or barbeque.
Some criminals operate
in groups, so watch for
unexpected visitors that
approach your front door.
They may try to distract you
while their partner breaks in
elsewhere.


If you are traveling for
vacation, be sure to lock all
doors and windows, move
valuable ; items from view,
and secure any other vehicles
before departing.
Having timers for your
lights and radio are useful
for tricking burglars to think
someone is home. Most
burglars will not break in if the
residence looks occupied.
Also, ask friends or
neighbors to bring in your
mail, because a full mailbox is


a good indicator that no one is,
home.
If you have a
neighborhood watch, notify
them of your absence.
Awareness and knowledge
of crime prevention tips will
help protect your family*
and property from burglary.

crime prevention, visit-www.

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, JULY 16, 2009


'Doctrine of the Holy Trinity


If. I told you earthly
things, and ye believe not,
how shall ye believe,
ifI tell you of heavenly
things?

What fitting words from
our Lord, Jesus Christ, on
the complexity surrounding
the doctrine of the Holy
Trinity. Anglicans recite
the Athanasian Creed as
their affirmation of the
doctrine of the Hply Trinity,,
which is essential to our
belief. When we confess
that we believe in One God
in Three Persons, we are
encroaching into sacred
and mysterious ground.
There are those who
confess to a set of beliefs
but never, wrestle with
the implications of such
beliefs. They are known as
"confessionalists" because
their religion is' fully
contained in the simple act
of subscribing to the creed
or confession.
At the other end of the
spectrum, there are others
who prefer to reject the
importance of creeds and
confessions simply because
," \ "*


they're the work of human

in the Words spoken to
the prophets. The absence
of a physical body didn't
mean that. the Son of God
was unknowable before
the .Incarnation, however
in the Divine Wisdom of'
the Eternal Trinity, it was
determined that the Son of
God, the same that Saint
John calls the Word of
God, would be revealed in
flesh, that the Word of God
would come among men-
Emmanuel, God with us!
The Son of God came
among men, as a man, and
by His Words and actions
we have been permitted
to see what only angels in
heaven once were blessed to
witness the glory of God.
Our understanding of Truth,
is not limited to Words as
if God has only spoken
from clouds in Heaven;
we have the testimony of
faithful witnesses that the
Son of God walked among
us, teaching His Disciples
what we, should know, for
our eternal blessedness. He
left His Apostles specific
instructions that when we
gather together in \Holy
Communion, the breaking
of bread, He is with us.


Our Faith is one of words,
one of confessions and
creeds, an objective and
true revelation. It is that
and much more.
Our Faith transcends
reason, but it doesn't defy
reason. Jesus didn't attempt
to confuse His followers,
instead He discipled them!
He taught them with simple
illustrations, with parables,
with examples that ,are
taken from everyday
life. One good example
is the exchange that took
place between Jesus and
Nicodemus (St. John 3:3,
f.f.) At one point in their
dialogue, Nicodemus
throws up his hands and
admits to intellectual
defeat, but Jesus doesn't
give up to Nicodemus'
desperation. Instead, He
reminds Nicodemus that
truth is within grasp and
has .not been hidden from
him. Jesus responds to
Nicodemus' desperation,
saying,. "If I have told
you earthly things and
ye believe not, how shall
ye believe if I tell you of
heavenly things?" We
can apply these words'to
our basic problem with


understanding the Trinity,
which is unquestionably
a doctrine that requires a
humble mind. It's above
our reason, but we aren't
left to drift around without
an objective direction. The
Son of God is revealed in
the Incarnation, One who
walked among us and has
left us His teaching and the
promise of the Holy Spirit
to guide us in understanding
His Word.
The doctrine of the.
Holy Trinity that as said
in the Athanasian Creed
isn't so mysterious that we
should fall into' the trap of
liberalism and reject it as
mere human reasoning.
The doctrine of the Holy
Trinity is revealed in God's
Word, set forth in Church
Creeds, and it' is felt in
our hearts as we consider
the love of our Heavenly
Father who has created us,
sustained us, and in His Son
redeemed us. Our Faith is
built on God's unchanging
Word.

Pet Therapy: Bringing comfort


and hope to hospice patients


By JENNI WILLIAMS
Haven Hospice
Special to Alachua County Today
Pets play an important role in
people's lives. From dogs to rabbits
to fish, pets are faithful, loving and
true. When people are nearing end-
of-life, these faithful animals are so
much more valued and appreciated
to bring unconditional love, comfort
And happiness into lives..
According, to revolutionhealth.
com, pet therapy has been a subject
of serious study for over- 40 years
for nursing and other health
* care disciplines concerned with
emotional well-being and, quality
of life. Studies have shown that
pet therapy offers psychological
and psychosocial benefits in terms
of emotional connection, stress
reduction, 'lowering of blood
pressure and reduced feelings of
loneliness and isolation. Since
chronic stress is a major risk factor
in mhny medical and mental health
conditions, regular contact,with a:pet
can help decrease anxiety and stress
by tapping into a sensory experience


and increase feelings of calm and
well-being, especially during the
complicated times. Studies have
also shown that pet therapy is
effective with senior. citizens and
hospice patients suffering. from
cognitive impairments, such as
Alzheimer's disease and Dementia.
At Haven Hospice, pet therapy
has become a wonderful treatment
option in caring for our patients.
Pet therapy has been embraced by
Haven Hospice staff, as well as
patients and families in all locations
of our 18-county service area. Donna,
Rice, Haven Hospice professional
liaison in St. Augustine, takes her
dog, Buffy, a 10 year-old German
Sheppard, to visit the local nursing
homes and assisted living facilities.'
Buffy will even visit with patients
in their honies. Buffy sees with
patients and families every other
Monday and Wednesday afternoon
for about 30 minutes. Rice says
patients light up when Buffy Walks
in the room, their demeanor and
attitude. completely change. "In
a complex world, pet therapy is a
simple, comfort to the patient, the


patient's family, employees in a
facility, and to me," said Rice.
Maia,- an eight year-old mixed
breed, visits the E.T. York Hospice
Care Center in Gainesville with
her owner and Haven Hospice
volunteer, Karelisa Hartigan. Maia
will come in one afternoon a week'
to visit with patients. Karelisa'
started volunteering Maiad at
Shands in Gainesville in the pet
therapy program and realized how,
beneficial it was for' the patients..
She then came to Haven Hospice
and has been volunteering .in the
pet therapy program for over two'
years. "Visiting with animals can
help. people feel less lonely and
less depressed," said Hartigan.
"The response from the patients is
immediate."
There is an unspoken connection.
between an animal and a hospice
patient, one that transcends all time'
and boundaries.
For more information on Hiven
Hospice's pet therapy program,
please call 1-800-727-1889.

Education:
Larry and the other boys in his neighborhood didn't
have many baseballs to play with. Because his dad was
away fighting in the war, Larry and his mother did not
have enough money to buy baseballs.
So, .when the last ball is gone, Larry has to make a
big decision. He has a baseball that Uncle Chuck caught
at a Cleveland Indians baseball game. Should he give up
his Big League prize for the neighborhood team? The
answer can be found in "The Sacrifice."

Ho to Buy a Qualitysed Truck

From Und$200 aMonth Without

a Penny O f Your Pocket


Gainesville, FL-
Now more than eve; great
..quality ad great value, are
what's on everyone's mind.
How canyon getthe most velii-
cle for the least money? Waeld
Raulerson Honda has the
answer
"We've had truck after truck
returned to us. People sjimly
Can't make the payments any
more and just bring the vehicle
back. We've got sq many ,of
them, bur only option is to let
new customers take over loans
on the trucks and start making
payments,"' said Jason Dillon,
used car sales manager.
Wade Raulerson Honda has
row after row of quality pre-
owned trucks available for this
program. Their service depart-
ment, which is one of the top
rated service departments in the
state, has inspected, recondi-'
tioned and certified vehicles.
"We just need to move these
trucks for the banks. Right
now, you can get a used truck
.or sport utility vehicle, many
1ss than a year or two old, for
less than two hundred dollars a
month without k penny out of.
your pocket. In twenty years in
the business, this program is a
first," added Dillon. ,
, Late model trucks, which
have already had thousands of
dollars in payments 'made
against them are being brought
back at a staggering rate.
' The bank nor dealership
wants these vehicles since they


Shave already been retailed. The
banks and the dealership are
looking for good customers -
,with good credit or bad who
are willing to take payments on
these vehicles..
"There's not truck on, our
lot that can't be bought for
under two hundred:dollar$ets

Jason Dillon,
Used Car Sales Manger
Wade Raulerson Honda

a 2007 Ford F-150 XLT,
stock number FH8310, with
0% down is just $197 per
,month .for 72 months at 5.9%
APR with approved credit plus
tax, teg and title,'And FIve got
.fifty other vehicles of similar
value," added Dillon.
Dealerships and banks aren't
in the business of taking back
vehicles when customers can't
make payments. They'd rather
get them off their books imme-
diately and will do whatever is
necessary to do so.
Wade Raulerson Honda has


taken all of the trucks and put
them in a special' section on
their lot. Any interested
consumers who'd like to view
the inventory' should call
the dealership to make an
appointment.
"All we're asking is to make
an appointment. We've got'
these vehicles sectioned off and
they're ready to be driven,
inspected: and taken home
today. We're clearly posting
prices and payments. If you see
a truck or sport utility you like,
but aren't happy about the take
over price simply make an
offer. Fm sure you hear stories
every day of banks and busi-
nesses taking pennies on the
dollar for surplus products. I
don't see why any offer will be
refused," finished Dillon.
Wade Raulerson Honda has
been Gainesville's top dealer-
ship for many years. Respected
by Honda and the community,
the dealership has built its busi-
ness on fantastic products, great
customer service and prices that
you can feel good about.
* Interested consumers should
call the dealership at (877) 639-
*8148. This event is going on
through 8:00pm Monday.
"After that, we've got to. ship
inventory off this lot. We can't
let it sit here forever for the
banks or lenders. Make an
offer now, or you may miss an
opportunity to get a great truck
from under $200 per month,"
added Dillon.


Interested consumers should contact the
dealer directly at 1-877-639-8148
