Newberry to buy

surplus solar energy
By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY - The Newberry
Commission unanimously passed an
ordinance Monday for net-metering,
which allows citizens or businesses to sell
surplus energy generated from alternative
energies back to the city.
Commissioner Bill Conrad said the
move keeps the city ahead of the curve in
anticipation of cap and trade legislation.
Cap and trade regulations could demand
that cities have a certain number of credits
for renewable energy, and this could be a
source for those credits, Conrad said.
Currently, Watson Construction is the
-only property in Newberry using solar
power, and no properties are using wind
power.
Conrad said he follows the issue
closely and serves as a board member
for the Florida Municipal Power Agency
(FMPA)- a community power supplier that'
includes 30 cities in Florida that use pool

Walmart finally submits building application


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - After years
of permit struggles and delays,
Walmart officials finally
submitted a building application
to the City on Friday, putting
the fate of the supercenter in the
hands of city leaders.
The application for the
nearly 155,000 sq. ft. store
planned behind McDonald's on


U.S. Hwy 441 will be reviewed
by city staff, and the City
Commission will then be tasked .
with approving construction,
asking for changes to the plan
or scrapping the application all
together.
The approval process is
expected to take months, but
Walmart officials are hoping
for City approval by the end of
2009, and construction should


be complete by the end of 2010,
said engineer Josh Bryant, who
has been working on the store
plans.
Walmart has been actively
pursuing the Alachua location
since 2006, but the project
was stalled by the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) due to drainage and
road access issues.
The FDOT would not issue

ALACHUA - After several years of sitting
abandoned and deteriorating, Alachua's old City.
Hall was bulldozed Tuesday.
Frank Sodek, administrative services director,
said the building, which is located near the corner
of U.S. Hwy 441 and State Road 235, was a liability
to the city and lowered the value of the land it
occupied.
The nearly 4,000 sq. ft. building, which was built
around 1973, has not been. used since December
2006, when a fire tore through the structure and

Today Reporters
ALACHUA - An
energy company planning
to transform an abandoned
battery plant near Alachua
into the largest lithium-
ion battery manufacturer
outside of Asia was denied
the $56 million it requested
from President Obama's
$2.4 billion federal stimulus
grant for electric car
development.
Planer Energy Devices,
San Orlando-based battery
manufacturer, is leasing
the plant at the Phoenix
Commercial Park 'on U.S.

It's an operation that CEO
Scott Faris said would create
150 jobs in the first year

Traffic synchronization waits for final link


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporters
ALACHUA - With some
20,000 vehicles filing along U.S.
Hwy 441 every day and more
congestion feared with a proposed
Walmart Supercenter near Interstate
75, traffic has become a hot topic
:among residents and city officials
alike.
To combat rising frustrations,
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) recently
connected sections of traffic
signals throughout the city to allow
synchronization and reduce wait
times, but officials are awaiting a
final link - a signal at the proposed
Walmart - to finish the process and
expedite traffic through the city.
About 20,000 vehicles pass
through Alachua on U.S. 441 daily,
but Walmart and its associated
development is expected to generate
an additional 19,000 trips every day.

The FDOT planned to connect be too long, so the FDOT must now

but the distance between the 1-75 Folatico, FDOT assistant district

Currently, the highest delays

financing. He said that wind
power isn't really feasible'
in Newberry and that solar
power doesn't work as
well as many people may
think. Even though Florida
is the Sunshine State, it
doesn't have the same solar
generation capabilities
as states out west like
Arizona. This is due partly
to Florida's heavy rainfall.
Conrad said the city
currently gets 80 percent
of its energy from natural
gas, 17 percent from coal
and 3 percent from nuclear
power. Natural gas is cheap,
and it's the cleanest burning
fossil fuel, according to the

over $230,000 of the settlement. Restoring the to the commission that the city investigate the
well to operation would also close the city's" public/private partnership model for recreation


that so many municipalities are now using. In
this model, the city puts up its asset, the land,
and the private sector puts up the capital. The
municipality incentivizes the private sector by
allowing the private sector to profit from its
investment. This is a win/win for the public and
the private. Alachua County's Jonesville Tennis
Park is based on the public/private concept. To
that end, I began the process of implementing a
similar model for Archer.
During my tenure as Interim City Manager,
I addressed some f40 projects for the City of
Archer, some of which had been unfinished for
quite some time because of the frequent turnover
in city managers. One of the projects I completed
is potentially profitable for the City of Archer.
The City of Archer owns the cemetery. When I
took office, Archer was selling its gravesites for
$100 apiece. An advisory committee surveyed
the cemetery and subsequently recommended
that the city sell the sites for $1000 to $1500
apiece. The commission voted 5-0 to sell each
grave for $1000. At $1000, the remaining grave
sites in the cemetery will contribute as much
as $700,000 to the general revenue fund. At
$1500, the cemetery could contribute as much
as $1,050,000.
During my tenure as Interim City Manager,
I also fenced off a retention pond in Archer
that had long been a safety hazard, began the
annexation process of almost a thousand acres
that would practically double the size of Archer
and improve its tax base, had the Florida League
of Cities evaluate the liability of every piece of
property owned by the city, and began the study
of a Special Events policy that would protect
the city from any lawsuits that might arise from,
the public use of city property. Evaluations of
employees and necessary staff changes were
made including three terminations and one
voluntary resignation. No previous evaluations
of staff were on record over past several
years. Consequently, I began the revision of
job descriptions in order to operate the city
efficiently and to prepare for the future growth
and development of valued employees. The
Codification of Ordinances and Resolutions had
long been in disarray at City Hall, so I instructed
staffto organize the records and have them ready
to be sent to the City Attorney for final review-by
the beginning ofAugust. Among the many other
projects I addressed was the issue of a tourism
identity for Archer. Plans were in the conceptual
stages to make Archer the bicycling center of
the county with rides through the countryside
and across the state connecting to Cedar Key
and the East Coast. With clean water, a waste
water treatment plant, sound civil government,
and an exciting reason to visit Archer, the goal
was to coordinate all these elements to promote
economic and cultural development in the City
of Archer.
Problems do remain inArcher no doubt. One
bleak scenario has Archer out of business as a city
within three to five years. But I am optimistic
that with vision and effective leadership, Archer
may yet find a way to compete. There are many
fine people in Archer, and the community has
much to offer. In this report to Clovis Watson
Jr., who was the consultant to the Ciy ofArcher
during my tenure, I have outlined the essential
factors that if resolved, Archer should begin to
prosper.

Alachua dentist receives fellowship


By HOLLY KANE
Today Reporter
When patients leave Dr. Marc
Cauchon's office, they are smiling and'
confident.
Cauchon recently received
fellowship with the Las Vegas Institute
for Advanced Dental
Studies (LVI), which
he says is "arguably
S the world's premier
post graduate aesthetic
dentistry institution."
The institute,
S which has required
Cauhon Cauchon to travel
between Las Vegas
and Alachua for more than five
years, offers a curriculum based on a
combination of lectures, laboratory
work and live patient care.
Cauchon has taken some of his


own patients there, like one man
whose front teeth had decayed. His
insecurity with his appearance showed
in conversation. He was sarcastic,
avoided eye contact and instinctively
moved his hand to his mouth when he
laughed.
It required 12 hours of in-chair
work over a few weeks, but the man's
new porcelain veneers visibly changed
his attitude.
He says the shift in patients with
newly-reconstructed smiles is like
watching "the proverbial butterfly
come out of the cocoon."
Although he has-completed'more
than five years of training with LVI
and "jumped through the all the
hoops," Cauchon cannot legally say
that he is a cosmetic dentist. There
is no legal description for a cosmetic
dentist, "but there is a big difference in


the training."
Originally from Port Huron,
Michigan, Cauchon came to Alachua
County in 1981. After attending
Santa Fee College and the. University
of West Florida, he graduated from
the University of Florida College of
Dentistry in 1993.
He wanted to start his own practice
in a place that had potential to grow
and seemed "underserved." Alachua
Dental Center opened in July 1998.
With patients coming from
Pensacola, Orlando and Switzerland,
Cauchon wants to further expand his
knowledge about his field, which he
views as ever changing.
"I'm a continuing education
junkie," he said. "And taking care of
your teeth is important for full-body
health."

intent to grant the permits
on Aug. 28, 2008, and the
notice is valid for one year.
Walmart will not receive
its building application from
the City by the Aug. 28
deadline because the City
Commission is not holding
meetings this month, and
city staff need time to look
closely at the application.
This means Walmart must
request an extension for
its FDOT permits, but
FDOT Spokeswoman Gina
Busscher said FDOT is
likely to grant the extension
because nothing has
changed on the property.
"I didn't even realize the
year mfrk was coming up so
fast," she said, "but we've
talked about giving them the
extension if they need it, so
it shouldn't be a problem."
To combat possible
traffic congestion
throughout Alachua,
Walmart and FDOT are
looking to add double left
turn lanes and a right turn
lane on U.S. 441. Traffic
lights in Alachua are also
going to be connected and
synchronized to reduce wait
times and increase traffic
flow. See related article

chewing; swallowing and,
'ultimately, digesting. It also

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, AUGUST 13, 2009



Unknowingly greeted by the Bolivian president


Kees Boer, Entertainment Writer


I sponsor children with
Compassion International, a
Christian child sponsorship
program. I love visiting my
sponsored children, and I
absolutely love Bolivia,
where I recently spent time
in the El Alto region, right
outside of the
capital La Paz.
I visited one
child's home
that was the
poorest home -,k
I've ever seen; - -
it looked and
smelled like a
small stable.
My Sponsored
child lives there
with her sick Kees Boer
grandmother;
her parents had deserted
her. I had just sponsored
her, all I could say to her
was how much I loved her
and how important she was.
I was there for the 1st
of May festivities, a big


holiday that includes many
demonstrations which
can be a bit dangerous
for a "greengo" like me.
Compassion arranged for
the children to come to the
hotel instead of me going to
where they live.
We were
waiting for a
child and her
S mother, when the
demonstrations
S started right
outside. The child
and her mother
arrived and we
were hurried
toward a taxi
to escape the
demonstration. I
kept hearing big
bangs like gun fire as we
rushed to the taxi, which
was a small vehicle much
like a Nissan car. Nine of
us crushed inside, six in
the back and three in the
front. While this is not


unusual in Bolivia, for my
6'5" frame it was quite a
challenge. As we all rushed
the car, including one of
my sponsored children,
I noticed a TV camera
following me. The child and
I tried to get into the front
seat, which is quite a feat
with my long legs, while
my sponsored child tried to
sit on my lap. In the chaos,
I glanced at the driver next
to me, only to discover we
were in the wrong car. I just
told him that it was nice to
meet him, but that we were
in the wrong car. He could
do nothing but look at me
in amazement.
We hurried out of thd
car as the Compassion
representative is telling
us how the situation is so
dangerous, while the entire
time I hear loud bangs like
gunfire.
Although the
demonstration continued,

were laughing and
laughing. Unbeknownst
to me, Evo Morales, the
President of Bolivia had
seen me in front of the hotel
and decided to wave. I had
no idea, but they knew
who he was and thought
it was very amusing that
the president greeted their


sponsor.
We finally escaped the
demonstration and drove
to the South of La Paz. And
there, of all places, was a
Burger King. The children
all wanted to go there as
they had never been before.
They were so excited to eat
there and celebrated with a
birthday party for Angela,


who had just turned nine.
Imagine, a dangerous
political demonstration
only minutes earlier, and
now we were having a party
as though nothing out of the
ordinary had happened.
All in all I had an
amazing two weeks in
Bolivia.

Gainesville, FL -
Now more than ever,
great quality and great
value are what's on every-
one's mind. How can you
get the most vehicle for the
least money? Wade
Raulerson Honda has the
answer.
"We've had truck after
truck returned to us. People
simply can't make the
payments any more and
just bring the vehicle back.
We've got so many of them,
our 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 preowned trucks
available for this program.
Their service department,
which is one of the top
rated service departments
in the state, has inspected,
reconditioned 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 less than a
year or two bld, for less
than two hundred dollars a
month without a 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.

FILE NO. 09.980

DIVISION CP


The bank nor dealership
wants these vehicles since
they have 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 a truck
on our lot that cant
be bought for under
two hundred dollars
per month- and
none of them are
clunkers."
-Jason Dillon,
Used Car Sales Manager
Wade Raulerson Honda

"There's not a truck on
our lot that can't be bought
for under two hundred
dollars per month - and
none of them are clunkers.
Look at this example - 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, tag and title.
And I've 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
immediately 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, inspect-
ed 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, I'm sure you
hear stories every day of
banks and, businesses
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
dealership for many years.
Respected by Honda and
the community, the
dealership has built its
business on fantastic
products, great customer
service and prices that you
can feel good about.

should call the dealership at

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
