cutting the budget fat
By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY Newberry commissioners met for the second time Tuesday to make deeper cuts into the budget for the upcoming fiscal year.
We've got to cut the fat, but we don't want to cut the muscle, said City Manager Keith Ashby, who presented the city with the budget and advised them on what decisions to make.
One area the city saved money was on health insurance. Ashby ended
the city's contract with Blue Cross/Blue Shield and found a less expensive option that offered the same quality of care. The new option is 1 $41,000 lower than last year's rate and $100,000 lower than health care would have cost in 2010.
The commission also discussed the Parks and Recreation Department, which has the biggest increase in expenditures of all of the departments. Parks and Recreation is expecting an increase of $475,070 in expenditures
with expectation of several grants to cover the costs with revenues to increase $512,990,
Commissioners praised the Parks and Recreation Department for its hard work to expand the program in bringing in the Easton Sports Complex. Commissioners also debated the value of Diamond Sports Park. Commissioner Lois Forte said the project was costing the city money, and it might be time to end the project.
Commissioner Joe Hoffman defended
Diamond Sports Park, saying the project didn't lose money last year and is unlikely to lose money this year. He also pointed out that the park has also helped the city in a number of other ways.
Commissioner Bill Conrad also defended the project. He said he heard nothing but good things about Diamond Sports Park when he was campaigning door-to-door.
Ashby discussed the idea of increasing the city's millage rate from 3.99 to 4.05. Conrad said he
wanted to do everything he could to keep his campaign promise of not raising taxes and sticking with 3.99. He pointed out that the city's increase in taxable revenue would mean the city will still be getting more money even if they keep the millage rate at 3.99.
Increasing the millage rate from 3.99 to 4.05 would raise about $17,000 for the city. Its cost to a homeowner of a $100,000 house would amount to an extra 11 cents per month. # # #
LaCrosse struggles to balance fire services and budget
By JIMMY CLARITY
Today Reporter
LaCrosse - Alachua County has offered the City of LaCrosse a renewal of its fire and rescue services contract with a proposed decrease in funding.
In a special meeting Aug. 24, the city and county met to work out contract details. County officials pointed to recent economic struggles as the reason they could only offer roughly $119,000 to fund the LaCrosse Fire Department's services to areas outside of city limits, a 7.5 percent slash from last year's agreement.
"With that much of a cut, we cannot maintain the same level of service to the county," said LaCrosse Mayor Dianne Dubberly.
Dubberly said the city is still in ongoing discussions with Alachua County Fire-Rescue Chief Edwin Bailey on how to approach the new service agreement and what needs to be done about fire-rescue staffing in
the city.
City councilman Winton Dampier said the new county budget won't allow for adequate service to areas outside the LaCrosse city limits.
"It won't work," he said. "We can't provide the level of fire service that they want with the funds they are giving, us.""
Although apprehension among LaCrosse residents regarding the city's fire services has yet to boil over, Dubberly said citizens are becoming increasingly concerned.
"Several residents did come to the special meeting," she said. "They were worried that if we didn't have a contract, where would they be? It's a precarious situation."
The City of LaCrosse was asked by Alachua County in February to adopt a Municipal Services Taxing Unit (MSTU), conceding all fire services to Alachua County. A MSTU is a tax incurred by

city residents to help pay for county-run services within city limits. However, city council members struck down the proposal in a 3-1 vote.
Pending meetings between Bailey and LaCrosse Fire-Rescue Chief Danny Hines, the most logical solution would be to cut back on the LaCrosse Fire Department's paid staff, Dampier said. , "We're taking the 7.5
percent reduction, we have no choice about that," he said. "What we are working on now is how to man the station and reduce some of the county restrictions on us."
Alachua County Fire-Rescue Chief Edwin Bailey was on scheduled vacation and unavailable for comment.

Ask Your Dentist
by Douglas M. Adei, D.D.S.
Dentures: How long� and how long out
Q: Is it true I should take dentures out only to clean them?
A: It once was accepted wisdom that dentures should be out of the mouth only for cleaning. It's now advisable that dentures be out of the mouth for about eight hours during a 24-hour period. The gum tissue under the denture needs oxygen for revitalization. The moist gum under the dentures is an ideal breeding ground for yeast or fungal infections and general bacterial overgrowth. This can lead to inflammation and degradation of the tissue; which in turn can contribute to sinus or respiratory diseases.
Remember, however, that dentures are constructed
for existence in a wet environment. So when they are not in your mouth, you should store them in a closed container with water, mouthwash or other non-sugary liquid to keep them moist. A toothbrush and regular toothpaste are effective tools for cleaning your dentures. Though dentures are designed to last a long time, changes in your mouth may sometimes necessitate a procedure call relining. This involves adding material to the underside of the denture so the fit with the gum is snug. Talk with your dentist about the proper way to wear and care for your dentures.

Clunker legislation
The economic illiterates in Washington are so impressed with the "success" of Cash for Clunkers that they're readying Cash for Clunker Appliances (http://tinyurl.com/ kqfoe8). The ludicrous "stimulus" bill gave $300 million to the Department of Energy to provide rebates for 10 types of appliances that have been rated energy efficient.
Before government extends Cash for Clunkers to more products, it might be a good idea to examine the original. The fact that Washington and the buyers who took advantage of Cash for Clunkers are gaga is hardly evidence that it, was in the public interest.
John Stossel
It wasn't. As usual, the program has been judged only by its first and most visible consequences, violating Henry Hazlitt's teaching in his classic, "Economics in One Lesson" (http://tinyurl.com/dkx9pm):
"The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the consequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups."
If you only look at the immediate effects, Cash for Clunkers appears pretty good. People traded in gas-guzzlers for more fuel-efficient new cars. The program cut carbon emissions slightly and gave the auto industry a boost.
"Manufacturing plants have added shifts and recalled workers. Moribund showrooms were brought back to life, and consumers bought fuel-efficient cars that will save them money and improve the environment,"
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood bragged (http://tinyurl.com/nu8nz5). "American consumers and workers were the clear winners thanks to the Cash for Clunkers program."
But wait. Shouldn't that be some consumers and some workers? And only in the short run?
Let's start at the beginning. The government paid car owners to trade in their old cars, which will be destroyed. But. the government is running a deficit. So it doesn't have $3 billion to hand out. It must borrow the money, which reduces the amount of money for other investments. Moreover, the government must raise taxes in the future to pay back the principal and interest � or the Federal Reserve will monetize the debt through inflation. Either way, we pay.
That isn't all. Those car buyers were either going to trade in their used cars soon or they weren't. If they were, Cash for Clunkers simply moved up the schedule. The stimulation of the auto industry occurred earlier. Big deal. But if buyers planned to keep their cars longer, the program imposed costs that are less visible. Without the government incentive to buy cars, consumers would have bought other things � computers, washing machines, televisions. The manufacturers and sellers of those products didn't get to make those sales. Why should the auto industry get privileges at the expense of others?
Then there are the mechanics who would have serviced those used cars. They've lost business. Some will be laid off. Nor should we forget low-income people who depend on the used-car market for their transportation. The cheap cars they would have bought were destroyed.
What about the alleged environmental benefits? Assuming that cutting carbon emissions is worthwhile, was Cash for Clunkers helpful? It's hard to see why. People who traded in inefficient cars for efficient ones will likely drive more and therefore use more gasoline.
Even if carbon emissions are cut by a lot, economist Christopher Knittel says the program will cost more than $365 per ton of carbon saved (http://tinyurl.com/mrmfuy).
Economist Bruce Yandle points out what a lousy deal that is: "The much celebrated Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade carbon-emission control legislation estimates the cost of reducing a ton of carbon to be $28 when done across U.S. industries. Yes, we are getting carbon-emission reductions by way of clunker reduction, but we are paying a pretty penny for it" (http://tinyurl.com/ lnua3k).
Finally, there is something revolting about the government subsidizing the destruction of useful things. It reminds me of the New Deal policy of killing piglets and pouring milk down sewers to keep food prices from falling.
Leave it to politicians to think we can prosper by obliterating wealth.

Letter to Editor
Bragging or Complaining
This is in reference to Ward Scotts' editorial on Aug.t 20, 2009,
Ward, it seems to me you wanted to hang on after you resigned or you were fired. You stated you did a lot of things for the city. I know for a fact some were started before you came and others were not completed. So you say, . you accomplished more in three months than another manager did in a year.
I was born in Archer 85 years ago and in all of these years we have never had such turmoil amongst the commissioners before you came.
I like LeeAnn Slaughter very much. I am so sorry she let you come between she and other commissioners. She has a right to disagree with the" others but, not to the point of resigning.
I believe you encouraged her. You came back to the meeting and escorted her out.
You had some nerve.!
What is your problem? I read your editorial with great interest. It occurred to me you were not only complaining but, bragged about all you did. Are you planning on using this on a resume for another job?
I will be glad to give you a recommendation for dividing the city, for demanding an outrageous salary, vacation time, and future ridiculous fringe
benefits. I am sure you knew you were not going to get what you asked for. I think you wanted out and this was your way of getting it.
I don't appreciate you making our city look even smaller than it is.
I hope you got pleasure from bragging and complaining!
1 do not live in the city, but I know what goes on. There are others that live outside of the city feel the same way as I do. It is our town. We do not want anyone coming in talking down to us.
Just call me one of the "Watch Dogs." I will not make another comment.

BENEFIT:
Continued from page A1
Hess is ready for more fundraisers for Todd family
on Aug. 1. Doctors had to completely amputate his left arm and part of his collar bone following the tragic accident. He remains in critical condition at Shands in Gainesville.
Benefit coordinator and Hawthorne resident Kathy Hess said about 60 people made it out to the event and raised $2,500. Hess said the money will go to help Todd's family stay with him in Gainesville as doctors at Shands hospital care for him.
Hess, who lives right behind where the old Hawthorne water tower stood, said her motivation came from a daily bible verse that says, "Walk the walk, don't just talk the talk."
Hess said she is happy she walked the walk and brought people to walk with her.
Several businesses in Alachua County helped out with the event by donating food, gift cards and other items.
Hess' mother-in-law, Elizabeth Hess, crocheted two throws for the event. One throw featured University of Florida orange and blue colors to be auctioned off, while the other featured Todd's home state of Kentucky's colors of blue and white with "Bubba," Darrell Todd's nickname, stitched in the middle for the family.
Kevin Layne cooked for the event and brought along members of Lacrosse Baptist Church. Maggie Reynolds, of Westside Baptist Church in Gainesville, baked dozens and dozens of cupcakes. Joann Rafter, a close friend of Hess, also baked for the event.
Hess said that reaching out and helping someone was a rewarding experience.
"I'm glad I did it. I'm ready to do another one."

ARSON:
Continued from page A1
Neighbor saw dynamite inside the house
suspicious stains on the carpet.
Szabo said the Alachua County Sheriff's Office will help in the investigation. As of Monday afternoon, police was trying to get a warrant to search the house more thoroughly.
A piece of carpet was obtained to conduct further tests and find out exactly what type of gas was used in the attempted arson.
The residence, located at 13472N.E. 148th Avenue, belongs to an elderly man residing in a retirement home.
Inside the house's
garage there was a pickup truck. Szabo said the owner of the vehicle is two years late on the truck's payments and collecting insurance money might have been the reason for the fire. The pickup truck does not belong to the owner of the house.
Szabo said this was an isolated incident, and the residents of Waldo should not be alarmed.
Neighbors of the residence believe the arson attempt must have taken place late Sunday night.
Charles Louis Griffin, a reverend at a nearby church
and one of the neighbors, said he looked inside the house and saw enough dynamite to blow up the whole neighborhood. He said this is the second time that house has been broken into.
In July, two men wanted for murder charges in Miami were found in the same house.
"Nobody here but retired," Griffin said. "We don't bother nobody. We have to look out for each other."

ARCHER:
Continued from pageAl
All candidates agree that Archer needs sewer system
candidate. Seat-two Commission Candidates Howard Haire
1 "I'm really excited that I might have a chance to change things," said Howard Haire, candidate for seat two.
Haire grew up in Archer but explains he spent the majority of his time as a project manager in Los Angeles building homes for celebrities such as Angie Dickinson and Charles Branson.
He now lives in the Archer home where his parents lfVed for 65 years.
During his time in Los Angeles, Haire spent 20 years as president of the LA Condominium Homeowners Association where he presided over 4,500 units.
"Doing that was like being over 1,000 Archers," he said. "Believe me, that's like running a city."
Haire often notices youngsters walking the streets of Archer and if elected, he will work as hard as he can to improve the sports facilities to give them somewhere to go, Jie said.
As a youth, he spent much of his time playing basketball at the old gym which has beert undergoing renovation. He's in touch with a source that could provide funds to complete the center, he said, though he didn't reveal any specifics.
Marjorie Zander
"Things can be done," said Marjorie Zander, Archer resident and seat-two candidate. "I say there's always a way."
A seventh-generation Florida Resident, Marjorie Zander was born in Lake Wales and moved to Archer in 1977.
Zander has been active in the Archer Historical Society since she moved back to Archer in 1990 after spending some time in Atlanta. She also took on the position as curator for the railroad museum.
Embarking on her 33rd year as a teacher, Zander has taught all levels since she began teaching soldiers stationed in Germany in 1976.
She's also had teaching jobs at Jordan Glen School, Santa Fe Community College and City College in Gainesville where she currently teaches College English and Composition.
Zander has two master's degrees from the University of Florida: Historical Linguistics and Teaching in English.
She stressed the need for growth in the city and feels that Archer should be aiming to get a sewer system.
"It'd be nice to see some places that attract some tourists," she said.
She would also like to see more community recreation in Archer such as a theater group and more sport activities
Seat-four Commission Candidates Ken Green
"I have some commission experience seeing as I haven't missed a meeting in years," said Ken Green, candidate for seat four.
Closing out the community development block grant that pertains to well three and tank two is the most important issue that faces the city, he said. That must be done to be able to apply for different grants in order to get a sewer system.
"We just have to get this well and tank taken care of
so we can move forward with that," he said.
Archer's city codes are also high on Green's list of issues to tackle. They must be rewritten, properly organized and easily accessible.
He also mentioned points such as finishing the old gym, getting the recreation program underway and also working to resolve the issues with the Sleepy Hollow trailer park.
Green has lived in Archer since 1999 and before retirement, he spent 20 years in the army.
A bachelor's degree in technology with an emphasis on nuclear technology landed him at Walter Reed Army Medical Center where he ran the unit responsible for the medical aspects of nuclear weapons accidents worldwide.
He has two adult children, both living out of the state.
Sarah Mcintosh
Sarah Mcintosh is convinced that now is a time when Archer "really needs a strong moving forward," and electing her as seat-four commissioner would put the city on the road to improvement.
A 23 year Archer resident, Mcintosh is an English teacher and academic adviser at Santa Fe Community College's Davis Center.
With a master's degree from the University of Florida, she has a particular interest in education.
A concern for the youth of the community drives her support for more work and education opportunities, and the need for a community center.

She moved to Archer from Indiana where her two sons currently live. She also has a daughter in Chiefland. # # #
FIRE:
Continuedfrom page A]
City needs $150,000 to cover county calls
Chief Verne Riggall is requesting at least $400 to cover the cost of every call.
"Just to get the fire truck to move out the door costs $522," Riggall said. "That's based upon fire station costs, staff, fuel."
Since Oct.' 1 to the projected date of Sept. 30, Riggall estimates the city to have answered 454 calls into county areas, which he said poses service issues to the citizens of High Springs.
"City residents have already paid taxes and assessment fees, and when we're not here, they have no service," Riggall said, pointing out that there are always two firefighters in High Springs, but not always a full staff.
Some say the economy is to blame for the decrease in funds, as the county enters a year when money that covers fire services has decreased 7.5 percent. With this decrease in funds for the county, Alachua County Public Safety Director Will May said he does not predict High Springs will receive the higher payment it is requesting.
"When we're in a $528,000 deficit going into the year, there's really no room to budge," May said.
County fire services are paid for through a Municipal
Services Taxing Unit (MSTU) taxed to citizens living in unincorporated areas of the county. But according to May, the county has had to decrease the funds it compensates cities for fire services by 10 percent.
Newberry Fire Chief David Rodriguez said the funds his department receives to serve unincorporated areas decreased from $151,000 to $141,000 this year.
"We get paid for what we do, and everyone had budget cuts," Rodriguez said. "What we get out of the contract that benefits us is we get a paramedic and we send an [Emergency Medical Technician] to the county."
But because of High Springs' proximity to the city of Alachua, which does not have a fire department of its own, City Manager
Jim Drumm said what the county is offering does not justify the amount of calls the city responds' to outside of its limits.
"One of our .big concerns is to look at the counts, and we go into the city of Alachua for a significant amount of calls," Drumm said. "When we're the primary fire department on these calls, it's more than just mutual aid."
Drumm estimated the city would need nearly a $150,000 contract to cover costs of responding to foreign calls, but as May said, that would be difficult to meet, and the entity that will respond to fire-rescue issues in unincorporated areas is still in question.
"Bottom line is we feel obligated to the citizens of our city who have paid taxes," Riggall said. But the city continues to settle because others need
protection too. "It would be hard for me to stand on the city street limit lines and watch a house burn down and not respond."

Purse snatched outside post office
By PATRICIA HOYOS
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE - The Alachua County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who robbed a 76-year-old woman after she left the post office in Hawthorne.
The incident occurred Aug. 25 sometime between 10:00 and 10:40 p.m.
Art Forgey, Sheriff's Office spokesman, said the woman was returning to her vehicle after checking her mail at the post office when she was robbed.
As she tried to close the door, a man held the door open and demanded
her purse. She declined, but he reached over the driver's seat, grabbed it and fled the scene.
The woman described the thief as a white male wearing a dark shirt and long pants. He is believed to be around 6 feet tall with a slim build.
Forgey said there is an active investigation to find the man, and there is a reward of up to $1,000. Anyone with information should call the Sheriff's Office crime stoppers at 352r372-7867.

AMBURN:
Continued from page A1
be put into Subterranean Kerouac: 'The Hidden Life of Jack Kerouac, Ambum's 1998' book hailed as One of the most insightful biographies of the tormented writer.
Now 11 years later, his time spent with Kerouac as his editor in life and biographer in death is far in- the past. But nestled in his home in High Springs, far from the literary scene of 1960s New York City, his pen is still hitting paper, and he's finally happy.
"The thrust ^ of my life today isn't all work," Amburn said Saturday, his voice upbeat in recounting the past. "It's now serving others. Everything I'd known previously was experienced through rapture, prestige and acquisitions but never happiness. I was too excited back then." j
Amburn, now 76, entered a world most only read about in literature books after graduating from Texas Christian University.' and landing a job at Newsweek in New York City. Fresh out of college, he reported on the hot, new fad of photography in 1954, giving him his first cover story at the news magazine.
In this decade, Kerouac would publish his American classic, On the Road, which sparked the wave of Beat literature defined through self expression, stream of consciousness and drugs.
"As someone alive in 1957, you could not hayenot heard about On the Road," Amburn remembers. "It was the beginning of the post'modernism era, and it turned the novel on its head by abusing the vernacular."
It was in the middle of this literary craze when Amburn moved to the book publishing world. Starting as a first reader at G.R Putnam's Sons, he honed his skills for spotting talent
Two films with actor Leonardo DiCaprio on the table
among thousands of pages of hopeful writers.
"Are they distinctive, is it original writing, is it expressive?" Amburn asks with bright eye6, looking into the bookshelves of his memory of how he evaluated the bestsellers he would produce.
When he moved up to editor at Coward-McCann publishing, Amburn's fingers would help shape the pages of three best selling classics of American literature. The Spy Who Came in From the Cold, A Small Town in Germany and The Looking Glass War by John LeCarre became number one bestsellers under Amburn's editorial hand.
When Kerouac came into Amburn's life, he had a taste of success from On the Road, but would never get the worldwide recognition until years after his death. Struggling with alcoholism, fear and denial of his own homosexuality and financial pressures, Kerouac begged Amburn to make him into a bestseller like his other proteges.
By combining two of 'Kerouac's books into one work called' Desolation Angels and inserting an introduction from a respected critic, Amburn saved Kerouac from falling into'a literary black hole when the book was published.
Although Desolation Angels and his next book, Vanity of Duluoz, scored poor reviews on release, they became literary giants1 when Kerouac would be rediscovered by restless generations who appreciated his prose years later. ,
"I loved Jack for that, and he loved me and dedicated a book to me," Amburn remembers.
Forever printed in history is a dedication to
Amburn and Kerouac's wife, Stella, he wrote on the first pages of Vanity of Duluoz that reads: ... "Extra, special thanks to Ellis Amburn for his empathetic brilliance and expertise."
Immersed in an art obsessed culture, Amburn ran with intellectual stars at the' height of a literary peak. In the social circles of Greenwich Village, NY, Amburn walked among those whose art defined their generation like Norman Mailer and Andy Warhol.
"That was a wonderful period of my life," Amburn said. "Parties all the time where intellectuals, actors and actresses would show up. Then we were really gearing up for a counter culture."
But his time with Kerouac ended in 1969, when the writer's stomach revolted against years of drinking and gallons of alcohol, and he died of an internal hemorrhage, a problem Amburn said was "connected to his troubled sexuality."
But Amburn's career continued without Kerouac. After publishing, he became a ghost writer for celebrities like Lisa Marie Presley and Shelly Winters, learning their life stories and writing an "autobiography" under the star's name.
"It's a codependency," Amburn said. "They're claiming they write their stories, and you have to stay quiet. You can only do it for so long."
In the late 1980s Amburn used his own voice to write biographies of stars like Janis Joplin, Buddy Holly and Elizabeth Taylor. After the success of The Most Beautiful Woman in the World: The Obsessions, Passions and Courage of-Elizabeth Taylor in 2000,

Ellis Amburn points out an excerpt from a book containing a letter he received from famed author Jack Kerouac.
work DiCaprio bought the film
Amburn is now at writing an updated version of the book, adding details from the last nine years of Taylor's life.
Amburn used his own voice for his eight biographies to date, but when he wrote, his biography on actor Jack Nicholson, he used his father's name as an alias after being burned by criticism from the players of past stories.
"The irony and tragedy of becoming a writer is you tell the truth in your book and some people never talk to you again," Amburn said.
But when Amburn went to Lowell to walk the streets that molded Kerouac into the complicated soul he became, this research and real life friendship with the writer would catch the eye of another star.
Soon after Amburn's' Kerouac book was published, actor Leonardo

In 2006, Amburn studied with a witch doctor in New Orleans and retraced steps in Eatonville, Fla., to learn by living the life of the Harlem Renaissance icon and author of Their Eyes Were Watching God.
"All the writing from the research has to be gorgeous, because it ends up being put right into the movie," Amburn said of his investigation.
Today Amburn can look back on literary legends and Hollywood icons that he has worked, dined and partied alongside. But the people he studies now are
He claims no denomination and no organization, but these days it is the people who have lived through tragedy, maybe in and out of jail and searching for spiritual growth, who Amburn now mentors with individual counseling.
"When you are mentally, spiritually and emotionally . bankrupt, you either die or have a transition in character," Amburn said.
These are stories not unlike that of his friend Jack Kerouac, of who Amburn saw legendary talent and epic torment.
"Jack was on the path to spirituality, and he knew that," Amburn said. "But most people never make it because addictions are absolutely overpowering. Now my job is to help people connect with
those with broken lives, whoever created them may who qualify for a spiritual be." experience. . _ # # #

Ashby doesn't want to lose small-town charm
violators will not be fined. Instead, the city will give businesses a certain amount of time to comply with the ordinance.
Garrett said most of the violations deal with signs that do not comply with the ordinance, signs that were put up without permits and signs that are not compatible.
Garrett updated the sign ordinance two years ago, but the city has not stepped up enforcement until now.
City Manager Keith Ashby said enforcement is important because the city is growing, and he doesn't want to see the city lose its small town appeal.
If we don't enforce the sign ordinance, we'll look around one day and wonder what happened to our small, cozy town, Ashby said.
Rodriguez said the plan is not to ruffle feathers but to bring the city up .to date with the sign ordinance.

Alive Unto God through Jesus Christ
It's customary in many denominations for engaged couples to go to a minister for pre-marital counseling. Why? The engaged couple is madly in love and filled with affection they see as a bond that can hold everything together through thick and thin. They're typically blind to the potential pitfalls that will land more than 50 percent of first-time marriages in divorce. Despite all of the heartfelt vows of love made on the wedding day they will face challenges to that will test those vows. And it is at those times that it's never quite enough to think back to wedding-day memories to hold things together.
Before the wedding, the Minister will meet with the couple several times attempting to place a little reality in the conscience of the future bride and groom. If that truth is accepted
and nurtured in the heart and mind of each person, given enough time and an environment of prayer and sacrament in the marriage, the truth will grow mighty enough to overcome the problems they are likely to face in their marriage.
So, what is that truth? It's that a covenant of shared life is being entered into. Shared life means shared joys and shared sorrows, problems will come up "but as challenges to both individuals, not just one person. This requires the subordination of personal independence for the sake of participating in a shared

life. The subordination of independent living for the sake of mutual dependence is the bond and union that Marriage is founded on. As the marriage ceremony states, 'those whom God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.' It's a divine joining, a heavenly union, with God, Himself, being the Priest of this sacrament; taking that which is common and elevating it to a higher purpose. This isn't a contract, it is life.
We're required to recognize the full meaning of marriage; the eternal purpose often isn't seen behind the expensive ceremony. No other social

institution puts forth more perfectly the. beauty of the Christian life. What I mean specifically is our union and participation with Jesus Christ. Saint Paul gives a clear and perfect interpretation of marriage: "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the Church." (Ephesians 5:31-32)
Saint Paul's epistle to the Romans, chapter 6, helps us to understand the union we have with Christ. Although it doesn't deal directly with the relationship of marriage, it does in fact teach that what is at the heart of marriage is the heart of our Faith, the unbroken covenant that's entered into between two people, uniting them into one. Saint Paul teaches that Christianity is not a social institution with customs and contracts; rather, it's the joining of lives together in an unbreakable bond. We're not philosophically
or theoretically joined to Jesus Christ as followers of a religion but we are in present time, in holy space, truly, objectively, and spiritually at one with Him. We are united to Him, not with a kiss and an exchange 'of vows, but joined together or NAILED with Him by the cross and sealed unto Him with the Holy Spirit that raised Him from the dead. Another symbol is the water of baptism; it is your golden ring, the band of union, the covenant sign that is pure, invaluable, and by being circular it has neither beginning nor end. It is a marriage, world without end, amen. The groom, the Son of God, is forever faithful and true, and the vows that He makes on our behalf are written in blood; the same blood we take in Holy Communion in remembrance of His union to us.
Saint Paul wasn't timid in his thinking on this union, this marriage of Christ to the Christian, and the obligations it carries. But what are they? You won't find them spelled out in
the fine print of a contract, which isn't Christianity at all; you'll find that the obligation is fulfilled in a single word, love. This simple virtue, love, must reign supreme in guiding our thoughts, words, and actions. Begin living with eternity in your heart now, for, according to Saint Paul, ' Christ has raised you from the dead and seated you in heavenly places! However, Saint Paul cautions us, in Romans chapter 6, to: "Reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ."
We must count ourselves as men and women dead to this world, as Saint Paul tells us; and, as such, we must rethink how we use our earthly possessions,, our time, the use of our abilities, and the distribution of our resources�at that moment we have truly entered into the full meaning of marriage with Christ. # # #

Partners in Education
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.
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."
Cltaftm �l)6 � btfRu&axd Key Utida
Larry thought to himself about the big league ball waiting at home. That ball was a real prize. It was something he had always dreamed of having. Larry looked at his friends and asked himself what was more important; having a big league ball or playing the game with his friends? Finally, Larry spoke up. He said he had a ball they could use.
The tension in the air shattered. Everyone was happy, knowing they would be able to keep playing with a good ball. As Larry started back to the house, he looked over at his uncle sitting on the porch. Uncle Chuck just smiled at his nephew and gave him an approving nod. .
When Larry got back to the field with the ball, the boys took their positions and the game picked up where it had left off. All during the rest of the game Larry thought about the sacrifice he had made. He knew it was the right thing to do, but it still hurt to give up the new ball. He just hoped it wouldn't be damaged in the game.
During the eighth inning, an opposing batter hit a ground ball to the shortstop. The shortstop fielded the ball and tossed it to the second baseman, who then threw it to the first baseman. Larry's team had just turned a double play. The excitement Larry felt as he watched that play erased all the pain he had felt about giving up his new prize. Larry had never seen his team make a double play. He thought only professional ball players could do that.
The boys finished the game before anyone was called home for supper. Larry's team had held their two-run lead and won the game by a score of three to one.
a boy. Larry listened politely as Mr. Williams told about playing baseball.
Uncle Chuck had told Mr. Williams where the ball had come from. The old man told Larry that offering a big league ball to his friends was a fine thing. Larry felt a little embarrassed.
Then Mr. Williams said that because Larry had done such an honorable thing he was going to give him something. The old man and Larry walked out to a shed behind Mr. Williams' house and opened the door. The shed was completely full. Larry wondered what the gift was. Then Mr. Williams turned to Larry and told him he could have everything in the shed.
Larry's eyes widened with excitement when he realized what treasure lay before him.
After the game Uncle Chuck motioned for Larry to come over to the porch. Larry had never been in Mr. Williams' yard. He knew who the old man was, but he had neveT spoken to him.
Uncle Chuck introduced Larry and the older man to each other. Mr. Williams said he liked to watch the boys play in front of his house every day. Then he sat back in the swing and said that he had played baseball when he was
