into the new Alachua satellite campus
Wednesday during a tour for a regional
coordinating organization.
Members of Heart of Florida, an
organization consisting of leaders from
north central Florida concerned with uniting
and working towards common goals, were
shuttled around the nearly 18,000 sq. ft.
facility, which will serve as another link
in the biotechnology chain from Santa Fe
High School to Progress Corporate Park.
The grand opening of the Charles R.

Technologies is set for Sept. 18 at 4 p.m.
The campus will welcome its first
students on Aug. 18 with orientation, and
classes will begin Aug. 24. The facility can
hold about 200 students, but registration
was low because of a system change,
said Kelly Gridley, dean for engineering
technologies.
SFC began to register fall classes in the
spring, but the Alachua building was not

ALACHUA - The City. of Alachua
recently installed a kiosk at City Hall for
residents to get public records without
having to request them from the city clerk.
Alan Henderson, deputy city clerk,
said the search engine at the kiosk will
eventually give Alachua residents access
to ordinances, resolutions and anything
considered a city public record.
The engine contains thousands of
documents, but the system is limited as city"


officials continue to reformat and add more
records.
Currently, visitors can only view
commissioners', e-mails from July 2009
and later. E-mails and other records from
City Manager Clovis Watson Jr. are still
only available through the city clerk.
Assistant Deputy Clerk Diane Morgan
said the kiosk was modeled after Alachua
County's system, which does not include
information from the county manager.

Area church food drive a slimy affair


I
RAULERSO


By PATRICIA HOYOS
Today Reporter
ALACAHUA - Helping the
community can be a sticky business
- at least that's what two church
members recently discovered.
The First United. Methodist
Church of Alachua held a food drive
from July 26 to July 30. The food
drive drew a crowd of about 120
people, including the volunteers, each
of the five nights.
Julie Jemigan, one of the, food
drive's directors, said the event was
set up as a competition.
Jernigan said the teams were made
according to gender. Participants
were elementary school children and
members of both youth and adult
classes.
If the girls collected more cans,
Adam Zele, pastor, would be slimed;
if the boys won, then Jeff Vanvaley,
youth director, would be covered in
the gooey concoction.
"Miraculously, there was a tie,"
she said. "There might have been
some switching of cans."


The church
collected a total
of 1,150 food
cans and donated
them to Bread of
Mighty Food in
Gainesville.
In the end,
both the pastor
and youth director
got slimed.
Everyone just i

Alachua County Today fights



for public's right to know


A lachua County Today has a record
of standing firm in demands
that public officials abide by
their legal responsibilities to
provide information when requested. We
are sometimes considered the pesky red-
headed stepchild of area media outlets. We
were recently informed by an area:public
information officer that of 80 media outlets
he deals with, Alachua County Today is the
"only one that causes problems." This may
not sound like a flattering statement, but
after recent struggles in our quest for public
records, we have embraced the label.
Our desire for fairness in the public
records acquisition process was reignited a
few weeks ago-when one of our reporters
Shit a roadblock with the Alachua County
Sheriff's Office. We found out the
Sheriff's Office had offered information
to The Gainesville Sun after claiming they
could not help us. We had been working
- for about three weeks on a breaking news
Story about a former City of Hawthorne
- clerk who was being charged with stealing
Money from the City, but a detective at
the Sheriff's Office never returned any
of the multiple phone calls our reporter
.; made in reference to the story. We were
: eventually sent back and forth between
the state attorney's office and the Sheriff's
SOffice because both were claiming they
Shad no information on the incident, and the
, , 'report on the investigation was "not public
, record." The report had been complete for
about 23 days, but it was lost in what was
eventually dubbed "Quality Control" at the
,1 Sheriff's Office.
S When we found out the Sun had*
received the "missing" information from
the Sheriff's Office, we went on the hunt
' to find out why we had been left out.of the
' ' loop despite our prolonged and repeated
Attempts to get details on the story. We
Called Sheriff Sadie Darnell, we called
: both public information officers at the
SSheriff's Office, we called officials in
Hawthorne and we were in contact with
an attorney representing the Florida Press
Association: We cracked open our legal
i books, we heated up the copy machine and
we popped open our highlighters. We were
S determined to get to the root of what we
viewed as an unjust and unethical situation.
The Sheriff's Office informed us that we
would have to submit all future public
information requests in writing because we
were stirring up so much trouble. Sheriff's
Office officials informed us they could not
give us a report on this incident. But after
our own investigation, we determined that
the Sheriff's Office was indeed violating
public records laws, however unintentional
those violations may have been. The


Sheriff's Office, like all other state and
local government agencies, has no right
to demand that we submit any requests for
information or records in writing. What's
more is that .the Sheriff's Office was
obligated to release certain information
pertaining to the case that our reporters
specifically requested of them.
We were not going to stand by as our,
and thereby our readers', rights were
violated. While other news publications
may have allowed such incidents to occur
unabated, we pursued truth and justice. For
that reason, we jumped at the opportunity
to meet with Sherriff's Office officials to
further discuss our concerns, and we were
pleased when they stepped forward to admit
they had indeed misunderstood the law as
it relates to the release of certain public
records. We commend those officials with
whom we met for accepting our criticisms
of the Sheriff's Office.
We understand that the media and law
enforcement agencies often have different
agendas. Alachua County Today has an
interest in keeping the public informed via
news stories while the Sheriff's Office is
focused on fighting crime. Often, the very
agency from which we are attempting to
obtain information is stymieing the flow of
it to protect the details of an investigation.
While our interests may differ, our hope
in meeting with officials at the Sheriff's
Office was not to create a more adversarial
relationship and further shutoff the flow
of information, but to make' it clear that
the information we seek falls within the
parameters of Florida's public records laws
and must be provided.
We appreciate the opportunity to
provide the Sheriff's Office insight into
those laws that we have become familiar
with out of necessity. We hope these
ongoing exercises in removing barriers to
public information will allow other media
outlets and citizens alike avoid similar
challenges in the future.
In the interest of promoting the floW
of information, Alachua County Today is
willing to leave this specific situation with
the Sheriff's Office in the past. Still, we
believe this incident highlights the reality
that we will not stand by and allow our
rights to be trampled upon. Censoring
public information to the media ultimately
means people such as you, our readers,
will be left in the dark, a place where
no watchdog can look after the public's
interest in the workings of government.
Alachua County Today will fight for our
readers, and we will fight to preserve the
rights of the media, and in turn, the rights
of all citizens.

Laws shouldn't tread on
property rights
The matter I'm concerned about
is from perhaps one of the most
obscure and least read sections
of a newspaper, namely the legal
notices. It seems the hopefully well
meaning, but I believe misguided,
city council of the City of Waldo
is seeking to pass yet another
obtrusive, invasive law in America,
the land of the formerly free.
Allow me to quote from
Ordinance 2009-03, which says in
part: "Prohibiting the accumulation
of junk on private -property;
providing for the retioval of.jutk
from private property and adjacent


to assure you that I just used Waldo
as an example of a much larger
problem, let me point the finder
closer to home, at my own beloved
city of Alachua and indeed even at
this very newspaper: two examples
so as to illustrate different aspects of
excess in enforcement.
First, se% eral years ago our riding
lawnmower quite even pretending
to mow My push mowers couldn't
keep up with over two acres of
grass, and it was a wet summer.
We mowed around the house, and
the rest became a "meadow," to
use my wife's euphemism. The,
one day I received a letter from the
city of Alachua giving me a certain


cityv 'ri O- ."gunber ot da\s to mow my la~'wn
,procedure ,f . ay,"N if memory serves. $100
remove unlawful in lace so per da until it as mowed.


lien on the property to cover cost..."
The words that capture my attention
in the proposed ordinancelare "junk"
and "private property." Who defines.
junk?A house and yard full of litter,
discarded debris and abandoned,
forgotten decaying belongings is
surely junk, I would say. But what
about my small pile of scrap metals
that I periodically sell for income
and recycle to conserve precious
resources" I bet Waldo would say
that is the accumulation of junk and
perhaps even "unlawful junk."
This is where the other part
that grabs my attention figures in:
private property If I'm paying the
mortgage (or rent), the insurance
and the ever-increasing taxes, then
pri ate property is a much paid-for
privilege. However, if in addition
to having to meet these sometimes
nearly overwhelming financial
obligations, I'm also subject to my
belongings being scrutinized and
deemed unlawful junk, and I'm
merely paying for the opportunity
to be a caretaker of what becomes
in reality public property. While I
do understand the intent of Waldo's
law and others like it, there is a great
necessity to be very specific in the
letter of the law, or it can, and will,
be abused by present and/or future
authorities. Instances of excess and
abuse are many by overzealous
municipalities and' homeowners
associations.
A vehicle being repaired, a
wheelbarrow left in the yard, a
brand new shed, a boat, work
vehicles, and numerous other
personal belongings on private
property have been deemed illegal.
And before we self-righteously say
"so be it." let us selfishly look to our
own property. Who's to say your
antiques, bicycles, Bar-B-Q' grill
or athletic equipment, or even your
children's, toys 'aren't junk? Does
the city or homeowners' association
decide for you?
While I'm somewhat of an
environmentalist and appreciate
natural uncluttered landscapes,
I also believe in freedom and
private ownership. If someone
isn't harming or killing others, then
there are fine lines to avoid crossing
before sliding down a slippery slope
to anarchy or totalitarianism. So as


Then a second offense would cost
$200 per day. We ended up pa ing
$450 a month to have it cut before
finally buying a new riding mower
using a credit card. Believe me. I
do understand the city's viewpoint,
but I would ha\e respected much
more if someone would have come
to me and discussed their grievance
and have let me explain. Personally,
I believe the choice to mow one's
yard or not is comparable to shaving.
Not mowing, like not shaving, may
appear unattracri\e or lazy, but it's
a matter of preference and other
compelling reasons.
The other example I'll conclude
with is the old Huddle House
parking lot next to the interstate
o erpass. Truckers formerly
parked there without expressed
knowledge or consent of the land
owner.'One trucker even pulled in
there when his truck caught on fire
and avoided a much more serious
situation if he would ha'e parked
elsewhere. An unused parking
lot being utilized for what it was
built. Yet APD, at the urging of
this newspaper, barricaded the lot
off. The end result: an unsightly
building and parking lot not being
used by those who benefited greatly
from its availability And Newberry
followed suit with a common area
truckers parked in there.
Can we possibly temper the laws
we make and their enforcement with
commonsense and respect for rights
and needs?

Ask Your Dentist
by Douglas M. Adel, PDD.S. "'

Why regular visits
are important


Q: How often should I see
a dentist?
A: It's generally
recommended that you see'
a dentist twice a year for a
cleaning and an examination:
There are plenty of reasons
wh) you should do your best
tg acdhere to that schedule.
'Here are a few of them: As
with any medical problem,
the earlier your dentist detects
a problem in your mouth,
the easier - and probably
less expensive - will it be to
correct.
SA cavity, for instance,
identified early can be cleaned
and filled. Left to grow, it can
lead to infection, toothache
and perhaps ultimately a
costly root canal procedure.


One of the basic problems
your dentist will check for
is gum disease, also called
periodontal disease, which is
one of the major reasons for
'tooth loss in older Americans.
Oral- cancer. is another
potentially life-threatening
condition your dentisi may be
able to detect early.
And don't discount the
great feeling you'll have
after your teeth are cleaned
professionally. Plaque canq
build up on teeth despite
your best efforts at home
with brushing and flossing.
When it's removed by your
dentist or hygienist, you'll
have a clean fresh feeling: So
if it's been a while, give your
dentist a call today.

"You'll only get
frustrated if you ask for
something that doesn't exist
or if you believe something
should be there and isn't,"
Henderson said.
,Michael Canney,
Alachua resident, said the
kiosk is a step in the right
direction, but it also shows
the city's approach to
public records.
Canney said the
computer does not have all
of the city's public records.


For instance, he said you
can get city commission's
Correspondence of the past
two months, but you can't
get the city manager's
e-mails. He said the city is
selective on what records
it makes easily available.
City officials' e-mails are
considered public records.
"To get certain public
records, you have to jump
through a lot of hoops
and pay large amounts of
money," he said.
Canney believes some
of the "outrageous" charges
are meant to prevent people
from viewing somerecords.
He said Alachua needs
to figure out a way to make
public records readily
available without causing
a burden to residents or
the city's staff. Canney
suggests the city's staff be
allowed to send requested
documents as an e-mail
attachment rather than

HaltUaP ..ite up..
Th" 207fCty Manager
Clovis Watson Jr. sent a
letter to the state and the


press saying he wanted to
make Alachua a model for
public records, Canney
said. He doesn't think this
has been the case.
Canney likes the kiosk,
but he believes more
improvements need to be
made.
Henderson said the city
is looking into putting the
search engine on the city's
official Web site in the
future. This would get rid
of the transportation barrier
for those who have issues
getting to City Hall.
Despite the kiosk, there
will always be people
who call or e-mail the city
clerk with public records
requests because they
might not want to make
the trip to City Hall or have
problems finding certain
documents using the search
engine, he said.
The kiosk has no

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, AUGUST 06, 2009



The third person in the Holy Trinity


There's a general idea
held by many Christians
that the Trinity season
is the least important
ecclesiastical season.
It doesn't hold the
anticipation of Advent,
or the self discipline of
Lent. It doesn't conclude
in the wonder of Christ's
birth or the rejoicing of
the Resurrection. In short,
it appears to be the season
without any true meaning,
leading to nothing
really important. These
misunderstandings account
for at least some of the
general lethargy in many
liturgical churches during
the summer months.
Almost every other
liturgical Christian tradition
thinks of these weeks as
being in the season of
Pentecost instead of Trinity
and the purpose behind this
thinking, is to direct their
attention to the continuing
work of the Holy Spirit
in the Church following
Christ's Ascension. An
emphasis on the Holy
Spirit is worthy of an entire
Christian season; He is the
Third Person of the Holy
Trinity. And in reading
First Peter chapter 5, there'
is a clear indication that the
person and work of the Holy
Spirit isn't to be overlooked
during the Trinity season. I
imagine it's pretty easy to
read 'right over the work
of the Holy Spirit in this
short passage, but it's very
clear, if brought to your
attention, that the Holy
Spirit is the focus of this
passage. "But the God of
all grace, who hath called


us unto his eternal glory Peter puts it quite clearly
by Christ Jesus, after that in his statement, "knowing
ye have suffered a while, that the same experience of
make you perfect, establish, suffering is required ofyour

him be glory and the world."

Notice, in this passage of participation in His life and
St. Peter's First Epistle, have a Divine purpose. In
that the fact of suffering is other words, the finished
a foregone conclusion. St. work of Christ must be


applied into our life in a real
and personal manner which
is accomplished by the
Spirit of God and suffering
is an instrument of the
Holy Spirit. At Pentecost,
the Spirit descended as a
purifying fire. This fire,
this purging process, this
difficult theological concept
that we call sanctification
was the same method used
by God with His covenant
people under the law. The
final Old Testament voice
and prophet, Malachi,
proclaimed, "He will sit
as a refiner and purifier
of silver, he will purify the
Levites and refine them as
gold and silver, then the
Lord will have men who
will bring offerings in
righteousness. " (Malachi


3:3) This holy fire is the
application of Christ's
finished work being
wrought within our soul
by the Holy Spirit and
it's a necessary part of
our Christian life and the
Faith that we confess at
our baptism. If baptism is
the entrance into the life of
Christ, it's the sufferings of
Christ afterwards that we
are called on to undergo as
the chosen means towards
achieving Christ-likeness
within us.
According to St. Peter
chapter 5, we should find
great comfort and assurance
in the love of God: "after
that. ye have suffered a
while, make you perfect,
establish, strengthen, settle
you. " (Chapter 5:10)


The Christian life is
made complete through
suffering. It's the chosen
instrument that our
Heavenly Father uses to
perfect the soul by purging
the residue of sin which
we inherited at our birth.
Our soul is both confident
'and strengthened in Holy
Communionr with the God
who has created us to be
like Him. By His grace,
the Lord assures us of His
presence and instruments
that sustain us through the
trials of fire, the pains of
suffering, and the assaults
of sin. Let us humbly adore
Him and offer ourselves
to His service, whether
in times of suffering or in
times of unhindered joy.

SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua
County Today are partnering to bring you "The
Sacrifice." The purpose of this campaign is to get young
people reading. Alachua County Today will publish'
an 8-chapter serialized short story, "The Sacrifice" as
part of our Newspapers in Education program. The
newspapers will be sent home with the students after
the project for the week is completed so that parents can
share the stories with their children.


It had been five weeks since the family had received a letter from
Larry's father Larry had watched his mother worry when a letter
did not come. He and his mother never forgot that his father was
fighting a wat And Larry knew that his father could be killed. So
getting a letter was a really big deal.
Quickly Larry opened the envelope and read that his father was
doing well and was very busy in the machine shop, working on the
ship's equipment. Most of the letter was written to Larry's mother,
but at the end was a note to Larry. The message said Larry's dad
had made a new friend who was a big Cleveland Indians fan.
Larry's father also said his new friend had a gift for Larry. He
said the package would be in the next mailbag.
Larry could not imagine what could be in the package.
Larry asked why his father had not said who the new
friend was. Mrs. Green explained that soldiers and
sailors did not write anything in their letters that
might help the enemy. Sometimes in a war, letters
fell into the wrong hands. She said there was
probably a reason the name Was left out.
After eating some of the apricots, Larry went upstairs to
get ready for Boy Scouts. He took his Scout book
off the shelf and practiced the Scout pledge. After
a little study, Larry put on his uniform. He liked his
uniform and thought.it made him look grown-up,
like his dad. Then Larry went to the garage and
got a pair of work gloves. The Scout troop had
been collecting scrap metal to help with the war,
and they would have to sort some of it tonight.
Larry knew the metal would be used to
make ships, tanks and jeeps for American
soldiers and sailors. Some of the old
metal was rough and sharp so Larry
would need gloves to protect his hands.
The whole time he was getting ready
for his meeting Larry wondered
about what was in the package.

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."


His dad always sent great presents.
The local Scout troop met in the church at the end of the street,
so Larry walked to the meeting. During the meeting the boys sorted
the scrap metal that had been collected. Then they practiced setting
up tents. The Buffalo Patrol set up their tent the quickest, but it was
a close race. Larry's patrol, the Wolf Patrol, came in second. He was
pleased with second place. Last week they had come in fourth.
When the meeting ended the boys stood outside the church and
talked about the ballgame they had played that day. They also
talked about the camping trip they were going to take. As the
boys talked, Larry started for home, still wondering what was .
in the package:.
As Larry climbed the front porch steps, he could'hear his mother
laughing and he thought he could hear voices on the radio.
When Larry opened the front door, he saw that someone
else was in the house. It was a man sitting in the rock-
ing chair.


Lwiw EutCk4 - ta T AboualDoa


A. Larry's father worked in the ship's machine shop. What is
a machine shop? Why would good math skills be important
to someone in a machine shop?


B. The Boy Scouts were recycling metal. Does your family
recycle anything? List five things that can be recycled.
