ALACHUA - A

Supercenter proposed

Hwy 441 is in the clear after
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT)
granted the company a
one-year extension on its
notice of intent to approve
permits. The notice of
intent was set to expire
Aug. 28.
This permit extension
means Walmart must
receive its site plan
approval from the City
of Alachua by Aug 28.,
2010, or the company must
resubmit its request to
FDOT, according to a letter
from Robbie Emmons,

to Walmart attorney David
Theriaque.
"The Department has
approved your request with
the knowledge that this will
be the last extension for
this project," he wrote in
the Aug. 18 letter.
Gina Busscher,
FDOT spokeswoman,
said requests for permit
extensions have become
more common since the
downturn in the economy.
"We are getting a

water tower accident


By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
HAVfTHORNE -
Kathy Hess lives right
behind the old Hawthorne
water tower. Her
grandchildren watched
the workers dismantle it
every day. When one of the
workers fell on August 1,
and" was severely injured,.
she knew she had to do
something to help.
She had extra
motivation from the
way a small town in


Georgia reached out to
her brother, who was
recently diagnosed with
colon cancer. He was self-
employed and wouldn't
be able to handle the
bills if not for the church
community that reached
out and helped him.
Seeing what a
difference this made for
him, Hess felt compelled to
jump at the chance to help
someone else in need.

join the. program but it has proven
difficult to get reimbursed.
Cash for Clunkers was originally
approved for $1 billion, but since
funding ran out so quickly, it was
expanded to $3 billion.

CRAIG COX/Alachua County Today
While flooding on Alachua's south Main Street has been curbed with the
installation of piping to direct storm water into a nearby retention basin, other
areas of the city's winding Main Street are inundated when heavy rains sweep
through. In recent weeks, torrential downpours have caused an overflow of the
retention basin adjacent to Bev's Better Burgers, resulting in a flooded Skinner
Park. The neighboring baseball field was underwater as were the basketball and
tennis courts. The City of Alachua was recently awarded a grant to make repairs
that would help curtail flooding in the Beef '0' Brady's area of Main Street. But
flooding further north on Main Street won't likely come without significant
changes. Among the choices being considered to repair the problem is an
underground storm water basin that would flow underneath the baseball field
at Skinner Park. That would require complete reconstruction of the baseball
diamond once the storm water basin is constructed.

her recently published cookbook.
Hale had her first cookbook
signing at the Silks Room at the
Saratoga Race Course on Aug. 18
in Saratoga Springs, New York.
The book signing turned out to be
a great success and Hale explains
she had the chance to meet and
exchange cookbooks, with Bobby
Flay, New York Times best selling
cookbook author and host of
numerous popular cooking shows
on the Food Network.
Hale will be conducting a local
cookbook signing on Saturday,
Aug. 22 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in
Williston at the original Ivy House
Restaurant and on Saturday, Aug.
29 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the
Ivy House's newest addition, in


will feature'bee experts who
want to spotlight problems faced
by the small insects that play a
vital role in the pollination and
health of crops and agriculture.
Organizers will give away
prizes and free gifts, and
vendors, including the Putnam
County Beekeepers, will offer
food to satisfy hungry visitors.
In addition- to gaining
valuable knowledge about bees
and their 'role in agriculture,
guests will learn how to make
candles and soap using natural
bee products, and an auction
will be held at 5 p.m. to fund
continued events.
The Alachua County
Beekeepers Club was started
in March and already has about
55 members. Wayne "Chappie"
McChesney, who started the
club, expects this figure to,
double or triple after National


Alachua.
While authoring a cookbook is
new territory for Hale, running a
successful restaurant is not. Hale
opened Ivy House Restaurant in
Williston in 1993 and it has been a
favorite among locals and beyond
ever since, with Florida Trend
magazine ranking Ivy House in
the top 500 places to dine around
Florida.
Hale opened the Alachua Ivy
House location in 2007, which
has become a local favorite as
well, serving up southern cooking
to please the most discriminating
palate.


Honey Bee Awareness Day.
McChesney said people
need to be aware of the problems
faced by bees because these
problems could soon become
our problems as well.
"Bees and other pollinators
have many obstacles to
overcome if they are to survive,"
he warned. "We all need bees to
keep up their pollination work.
in order for us to continue to
enjoy the foods we love to eat
and need to survive."
Saturday's Honey Bee
Awareness Day at Dadant &
Sons is located at 17074 NW
188th Street in High Springs.

event or beekeeping, visit the

Correction:
In the Aug. 13 edition of .4/achia County Today,
the story entitled. ""Demolisheifd incorrectly
attributes information to City of Alachua
Administrative Services Director Frank Sodek.
Some of the information used in the story was
obtained from a background file and not Sodek.
Among the information improperly attributed
to Sodek is that the former City Hall building
lowered the value of the property and was a
liability for the City. It was also incorrectly
stated that Sodek said the City of Alachua was
not considering combining the City Hall property
- with the adjacent fire department property. 'The
story also attributed quotes and statements to
Sodek regarding the cost of the demolition versus
an increased value of the property Those quotes
also came from a background file kept by .41achua
County Today and not from Sodek. Additionally,
Alachua County Today would like to clarify that
the City of Alachua's old City Hall property has
not been declared as surplus although discussions
about selling the property have been held by the
commission. .Alachua County Today apologizes
for these errors.

We have a lot to be excited about.
We're especially proud of our academic
accomplishments last year; we met both
the state's criteria for an "A" school and
achieved 97 percent of federal standards
for adequate yearly progress.
This year, we plan to do even better. We
have upgraded our classroom technology
with the help of the school district, our
PTA, and local business partners. We'll
have even more Accelerated Reader access
thanks to a grant from Wal-Mart and
continued support from our PTA. We have


expanded our Professional Development
School partnership with the UF College
of Education with our own Professor-in-
Residence. Our goal is to provide a well-
balanced, comprehensive program for all
our students.
We look forward to seeing all our
students and parents at Meet the Teacher on

new students. Parents, I encourage you to
become a volunteer at our school and be'
a part of our Panther Family. We pride
ourselves in maintaining a community-
friendly environment and welcome
parents, churches and business partners to
get involved.
I am proud of the many achievements
earned by Newberry High School
during the 2008-2009 school year. Our
graduating seniors were awarded more
than $1 million in scholarships and eight
of our top 10 graduates were accepted to
major four-year universities. More than
60 percent of the graduating class has
plans for post-secondary education.' A
team of NHS students was recognized

and Technology opens with 44 sixth grade
students from Newberry, Archer, Alachua,
High Springs, and west Gainesville. This
program boasts a rigorous academic
program that is infused with some of the
latest educational technology throughout
all areas of the curriculum.

We hope that your summer has been
productive and.that you are ready for the
challenges and opportunities that await
you this school year at Santa Fe 'High
School.
Construction has been completed on
the eight laboratory/classroom addition to
our school. All of our science classes will
now be housed in one building. We have
equipped the classrooms with enhanced
instructional technology including new
lab equipment . and student-interactive
devices. Our science facility is considered
one of the most advanced in Florida. We
were very fortunate that funds for this
project were set aside long before the
current national economic slowdown.
We were somewhat pleased with the
school grade we received in June. Our
school' was awarded a "B". We were
the only high school in Alachua County
that improved their letter grade from
last year.. In fact, of six high schools in
Alachua County, three actually declined
at least one letter grade. We were also.
encouraged with our Advanced Placement
test results. The performance of our AP
students ranks us among the top 4 percent


Bill Powell, Waldo Community School


Welcome Waldo Warriors!
There is much excitement around our
school as we prepare for a new school

SunState Federal Credit Union

& Alachua County Today


Partners in Education


SunState Federal Credit Union
and Alachua County Today are
pleased to partner in an important
endeavor: Encouraging young people
to read. Research has shown that
reading improves cognitive abilities,
and that students who read regularly
can think more creatively as well as
become better analyzers and problem
solvers. Reading helps a person be
successful in life.
Alachua County Today will publish
an eight-chapter serialized short story
each week as part of our Newspapers
in Education program.
We were pleased to run such
serials as "Good Morning, Mr.
President," "The Sacrifice" and "Here
they Come."


We hope the students along with
their teachers' and parents will enjoy
this year's selection of serials.
A message from the sponsor:
Parents interested in teaching their
kids about finances will find an array
of financial literacy resources available
at www.sunstatefcu.org. SunState
Federal Credit Union has financial
literacy modules and more for children
of all ages and adults too. Many of
the tools for children are fun to work
with and include games, puzzles,
and more. SunState Federal Credit
Union strongly supports literacy
both in the classroom and at home,
and we encourage parents to start
teaching their children early about the
importance., of financial responsibility.

They're back. And anyone who lives in and
around Gainesville knows who "they" are.
Students -- nearly 70,000 strong -- are
back in town, in the stores and restaurants, and
perhaps most importantly to many of us - on
the roads.
- Its an annual ritual that tests the patience
and~ riving skills of us ."year-rounders" who
have; gone through this more-
time's'than we care to remember.
Don't get me wrong - I
hdld .'no animus toward driving .
stodents... well, not much.
I used to be one.
And I have several offspring
who "contribute to thiS \ irtual .
army, of drivers who have
besieged our roadways. It's
just that, for a.period of time, it * . -
seems as though all the world's
bad drivers are squeezed into one
loca�ion - here.
6an you. say "accidents
waitig to happen?" Ellen Bou
That's not to say that all
students are bad drivers or that all non-students
are -good drivers. Heaven knows we seem to
have.inore than our fair share of reckless, stupid.
or careless divers of all ages year round.
But since our taxpayer supported public
institutions of higher education are responsible
for this influx of young road warriors, wouldn't
it make sense, that in the interest of public
safety, these same institutions incorporate a
section about driving in the compulsory student
orientation? As an introduction to college life,
this -would take the form of a test consisting of
questions regarding Florida's, and especially
Gainesville's, rules of the road.
After thoughtful research, thanks in part
to my good friends at Google, and firsthand


I


knowledge of the area, I have carefully prepared
the following suggested driving test questions.
1 - When stopped by police, you should:
a) Pull over and have your driver's license and
proof of insurance ready; b) Try to outrun tlhem
by driving backwards through Butler Plaza on
Archer Road; c) Ask the officer if he or she
knows who your, daddy is; or d) Traffic laws
don't apply to students.
-. 2 - The top light on a traffic
- . signal is- ai Red; b) Green; c).See
. answer "d" above.
,. 3 - Before changing lanes you
should: a) Use your turn signal; b)
'iMake sure the lane is clear; c) a
. and b. Or d) Just pull into the lane
, without doing either a or b because -
See ans% er "d" above.
\ 4 - When driving while applying
makeup or shaving .,you should
alhwa\s: al Slow down and try to
catch red lights, so you can look
your best in class; b) Drive faster
kari and run red lights since you don't
want to be late; c) Pull into a left turn
lane until finished.
5 - In the event of a hurricane, you should:
a) Stay off the roads; b) Stop your car in mid
traffic and call UF alum Stephanie Abrams
of the Weather Channel for instructions; or c)
Drive into the storm since it will be over sooner
that way.
6 - The speed limit in a residential area is:
a) 35 MPH; b) 45 MPH; c) 85 MPH; or d) Your
daddy paid lots of money for your car and you
can drive as fast as you want.
7 - When a pedestrian enters a cross walk,'
you should: a) Offer to give them a ride; b) Stop;
c) Tell them to take a bus and get off the street;
or d) Speed up, honk the horn and give them the.
finger.


8 - When you hear an emergency.-vehicle
siren approaching, you should: a) Pull over to
the right and stop; b) Pull in directly behind
them and follow because they are. clearing a
traffic lane for you; or c) Turn up your radio and
give them the finger for interfering with your
favorite music.
9 - When late for class,'you should: a) Speed
as fast as you can; b) Weave in and out of traffic,
tailgating whenever possible; c) Apologize
when cutting in front of little old ladies with
purple hair; or d) What's class?.
10 - A red eight-sided sign with "STOP"
printed on it means: a) Slow down; b) Stop;
c) Stop only if Iher ..m.t1 e
immediate vcinitN. odr')T6e, 4gts ohnlh'pply,
to school buses.
Upon completing the driving exam, students
will appreciate immediate gratification in
knowing within minutes whether they passed or
not. It's more than likely that the majority will
not. In that case, these students will be issued
a ticket to ride: a "get on the bus pass" for free
that will be good until they do pass the test.
This will free up the roadways for those of
Uts who drive safely, do obey traffic laws and
pay increased insurance premiums because of
those drivers who do none of these things. And
this will give those young "accidents waiting
to happen" yet another opportunity to read the
Florida Driver Handbook, which is free and
available at any local drivers license office and
online.

Property Appraiser records.
In the current real estate market,
without large construction projects or
major annexations, getting an increase in
taxable values is nearly impossible, Crapo
said.
Archer came in with a 3.26 percent loss
with a total property value of $32,494,126.
LaCrosse had a net loss in property values
of $458,607, bringing the total value of
land there to $11,713,127. Waldo skirted
by with the lease amount of losses with a
.58 percent decrease in overall tax value,
bringing the town's overall taxable value
to $24,956,837. Meanwhile, Micanopy
dropped by 4.08 percent setting the total
values in the small town at $27,868,130.
Despite the grim news for many of
Alachua county's municipalities, they're
. not alone. The County itself is suffering
a loss in the overall value of properties
which pay into the Municipal Services
Taxing United (MSTU). With more than
$344 million decline in property values,
the County's MSTU is losing 6.25 percent.
The Board of County Commissioners
(BOCC), which repr h,, ?,. ,
properties in the county, is set to lose .65


percent or $82.35 million. That kicks the
total taxable property value, in Alachua
County down to $12.58 billion.
While the chilling numbers for 2009
are in, Crapo .sees hope for a turnaround in
the market.
"As we're clocking values in August,
it seems we're hitting the bottom on single-
family detached homes. But condominium,
professional and retails spaces may not
have bottomed out yet."
Crapo said he doesn't see a short-
term change in the trends and expects to
see declining values into next year. Not
all hope is lost on Crapo who. said, "I do
think for most of us, it's near the bottom of
the market. I'm not certain it will start up
quickly. But by next spring, maybe we'll
see an improvement in values."
As Crapo sees it, the real estate market
is waiting on the banking industry.
. "We've got good people that can't get
loans on good properties. Until the banking
industry sorts out those credit issues, real
estate is going to suffer," said Crapo,
For that reason, Crapo gives simple
advice to sellers, saying, "If you don't have
to sell, I wouldn't."

"These hours-must be worked at

She wrote that she not decided
what action to take for the hours he

Modican did not respond directly
to the allegations made by Rice
Chapman, but he did reply with his
resignation, email records show.
He wrote, "For almost tWo

The charges are still under

The maximum extension FDOT
is allowed to grant is one year, and
Busscher said the circumstances
surrounding Walmart's need for an
extension led FDOT officials to grant
the maximum time.
"They got held up with our
permits, and with other factors
considered, we decided to go ahead


and give them one year," she said.
Walmart was in talks with FDOT
for. more than a year because FDOT
would not issue the road-access
permit until Walmart officials could
specify how their store would impact
U.S. 441 and other nearby roads.
FDOT also had an issue with drainage
from the massive parking lot, which
FDOT claimed could overwhelm
the current drainage pipe running


underneath U.S. 441.
According to an Aug. 17 letter
from Theriaque to the FDOT, Walmart
is expecting City approval within two
or three months.
Josh Bryant, an engineer working
on the development, said Walmart
officials are hoping the store will be
complete by the end of 2010.

"What better way for me

Hawthorne Interim,
City Manager Linda Rice
Chapman commended Hess
for stepping up to the plate
and helping cut as a private
citizen. She said the family
may be in Gainesville for
several months.
Hess said that as of
Monday, Darrell Todd, 22,
was in critical but stable
condition. He is battling an
infection, has to undergo
multiple surgeries each
week and had a portion of
his left arm amputated.
On the positive side, he

Todd's worker
compensation will cover
his medical bills, but his
family has their own set
of expenses to stay in
Gainesville.
Hess said the money
will help the family be
there for their son. The
money will help them get
an apartment and cover
day-to-day necessities.
Both parents are currently
unemployed as they stay
in Gainesville away from
their home in Kentucky.
To raise money for
the benefit, Hess called
local businesses and asked
them to help out. Hess is
a chairperson for Clariant
LSM (Florida) Inc. where
she regularly conducts'


fundraisers to fight Cystic
Fibrosis. She also worked
as a campaign coordinator
for United Way.
Several companies have
already made donations
for the event. Aviant Party
Rentals donated a bounce
house for children to play
in and Wild Adventures
donated four tickets for the
raffle.
Hess said she got to
know the family and has a
passion to help them.
"If I develop a passion
for something, I'm going
to give it more than 100
percent," Hess said.

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, AUGUST 20, 2009



The Grace to Walk in Holiness


"Judge not and ye
shall not be judged." If
this was said by liberal-
minded atheists, people
would carry on about how
enlightened they were.
They'd say that this kind of
thinking could end all wars,
racism, and even end all
religious differences. Why,
if everyone would embrace
this philosophy we might
even be able to get rid of
the judicial system.
But, the thing that
stands in the way is that
we are dealing with
mankind and that makes it
impossible. A more serious
religious problem occurs
when people ask, "Is God
above His own command?"
This comes from all of
the occasions where Jesus
strongly condemns the
Pharisees and Scribes! For
instance, six times in Saint
Luke chapter . 11, Christ
exclaims "woe unto you"
when He's speaking to the
religious men of his day,
and each time the 'woes' are
spoken, Christ follows them
with judgments against
the Pharisees and Scribes


for hypocrisy, hatred, its actual message. In St.
murderous intentions, false Luke, Chapter 6:41 f. f.,

But, unlike the rest of
mankind, our'Lotd doesn't
say one thing and do
another.
To understand our
Lord's meaning, we must
interpret His words in
their proper historic and
grammatical meaning.
This is the true work of a
disciple - to hear the Word
of the Lord as it was given
and to obey it according to


during the procedure!
Here the 'judge not' means
the person who would

in a position of judge, or
in this case, a surgeon, first
has to be cleansed of false
intentions and feelings of
superiority before their
true judgment, or surgery,
can benefit anyone else.
That's why the passage
begins with the caution to

be merciful, as bur Father
in heaven is merciful! The
passage then ends with the
Gospel, the liberation of
another, through the use of
judgment, when it comes
from a pure instrument of
the Spirit. That's brought
out in the phrase, "cast out
first the beam out of thine
own eye, and then shalt
thou see clearly to pull
out the mote that is in thy
brother's eye." (Luke 6:42)
Once the grace of God
cleanses us of our sins and
we walk in holiness and
righteousness with God
Himself, judging our life
under the mirror of the
Scripture, the Sacraments,
and constant prayer, then
we are in a position to
heal, to provide comfort, to
remove sinful hindrances
in others; at that point in
our spiritual maturity we're
obligated to God to make
godly judgment. That's
what Christ is teaching us
by His denunciations of
the Pharisees and Scribes.
Judgment is not contrary
to Godliness, but is in fact,
a means of grace and an
instrument of the Spirit to
bring about repentance,


which leads to forgiveness
and a right relationship
with God.
There are two uses of
this in Scripture. First of
all, the personal application
that takes place between
two people when the
Christian who's learned
to walk in holiness and
righteousness comes to
the aid of those who are
traveling blindly down a
dangerous path-those
who need to be guided
back to the truth by those
who can see more clearly.
This is the individual use
of proper judgment taking
place among Christians.
The second is what could
be called the Apostolic
application, i.e., Jesus
Christ's commissioning
His Apostles and their
successors: This is found in
Saint John 20:23, "Whose
soever sins ye remit, they
are remitted unto them;
and whose soever sins ye
retain, they are retained."
This is clearly a God-
given command to the
Bishops of the Church
of Jesus Christ and the
Priests that they appoint.to
exercise judgment and to


call sin 'sin' and also the
Spiritual means of grace
for restoring sinners into
relationship with God
by the proclamation or
declaration of absolution!
The present day church
has advanced far too many
men and women .into a
position of responsibility,
who aren't, walking
in" holiness and aren't
concerned with godliness;
using personal opinion as
if it's the judgment of God.
Because of this, immorality
and a rewriting of Christian
beliefs and practice have
overrun the Faith. It's
clear that these individuals
would do well to heed the
command to, "judge not!"
We live in dangerous
and confusing times when
the Words of our Lord are
turned against Him. and
against His Church. Let us
pray for the grace to walk
in holiness and .also for the
courage to speak the truth in
love and judge where there
is someone who might be
saved by our speaking the
truth in the Spirit of Christ.

- 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."

Larry stepped up to his uncle and stretched out his hand. Uncle
Chuck laughed a big laugh, reached down, grabbed his nephew,
and slung him over his broad shoulders. He carried Larry
around the living room like a sack of potatoes, while
both of them laughed and yelled.
Uncle Chuck's dark hair was cut short and he
still had a big smile. His uniform had all kinds
of medals and patches. He told Larry that he
had been sent back to the United States for more
training. He said he had a three-day pass and
would be spending two days in Cleveland:
Larry was so happy. He asked all kinds of
questions about where Uncle Chuck had
been and what had happened to him. He
asked about all the patches and medals.
Uncle Chuck answered all Lary's questions
and explained what he had seen and done in
the Army. He then-'asked his nephew how he

The family talked and talked late into the night. Finally
Larry's mother sent him to bed. Soon after he crawled

Larry also told his uncle that he had not been
able to collect much scrap metal for the troop.
- He had less scrap than any other boy.
After lunch, Uncle Chuck asked Larry for the garage

the garage when he had gone into the Army.

time. When he came out of the garage,
Uncle Chuck called to his nephew and
said he had something for him.
Uncle Chuck always had great surprises,
so Larry was eager to see what was hiding
behind'his uncle's back.
