HIGH SPRINGS - After climbing
the ranks for 40 years at a High Springs
piping plant that started him at $1.74 per
hour in 1969, Charles Langston is now

machinery had taken the brunt of
his manual work from crating and


shipping pipes, the slumping economy
would finally take the rest of it. In
July, Langston joined 9,939 workers in
Alachua County that were left jobless.
"I don't fault the company, I fault
the economy," Langston said Tuesday,

employee on vacation at his old job

Oral cancer warning signs


Q: What are some of the
warning signs of oral cancer?
A: Oral cancer will likely
kill some 7,500 Americans
this year. Here are some
of the symptoms of the
disease: a sore in the mouth
that will not heal and bleeds
easily; difficulty chewing or
swallowing food; a white or
red patch in the mouth that
will not go away; a lump or
soreness in the mouth, throat,
tongue or neck; frequent
bleeding in the mouth; loose
teeth; an earache.
The possibility of oral
canceK is just one reason why
regular visits to your dentist
are so important. Your dentist
is in the best position to
detect some of the symptoms


listed above, because most
of them begin in a painless,
hard-to-notice fashion. Most
cases of oral cancer begin in
the tongue or on the floor of
the mouth. Tobacco users are
at considerably greater risk
of developing oral cancer
than are those who don't
smoke or chew tobacco.
In fact, 75 percent of oral
cancers are attributed to the
use of tobacco.
The good news is that
when detected early, oral
cancers have a cure rate of 80
to 90 percent. Talk with your
dentist about the warning
signs of oral cancer and
about lifestyle decisions that
can help you avoid it.

On September 11


I thas been eight'years since America was shaken
by the tragedy and destruction brought about
by hatred and evil. The events of September
11, 2001, dramatically changed not only the
people of the United States, but people around the
world.
Foreign to most Americans was the singular
thought of an attack on American soil. But all too
quickly the reality of those almost, indescribable
moments of shock hit home as terrorism was no
longer a headline about a country thousands of miles
away. Now Americans did indeed grasp, all too well,
what "terror" was truly about as they grappled with
what was no longer just a threat, but now reality.
And Americans began to understand the sickening,
helpless feeling that comes with tragedy, uncertainty
and danger.
The tremendous outpouiting of grief and sorrow
that followed was illustrated time after time as
the nation mourned the losses. Candles were lit
in remembrance and flags, were flown in patriotic
displays of unity.
Stories of the 3,000 people who died, the bravery
and courage' exhibited by emergency personnel,
the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93, and
volunteers served to not only inspire the country, but
to remind all of us, and the world, what has remained
constant throughout the history of the United States.
It is the American spirit that emerged in the
aftermath of the attacks that reminds us why America
is great. The strength, unity and caring for our fellow
man that somehow seems to get lost in our day to day


lives, sprang forth strong and unwavering. It was
that strength, that resolve that prepared the country
for the challenges that lay ahead.
It is that same unity and resolve that will bring this
country through the good and the bad that may come,
including today's economic nightmare. However
bleak the future may be painted, America has been
blessed with enormous freedoms and prosperity.
But these blessings have not come without a price.
We are reminded that throughout our history, many
Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice by
giving their lives to protect our freedoms.
There is no doubt that today we face a different
world than we did eight years ago. But again,
-what remains constant, unwavering and solid is the
American spirit that serves not only this country
well, but other countries around the globe.
September 11 will always be remembered as
one of the greatest tragedies in America's history,
a sobering experience to generations of Americans
who had no notion that terrorism could strike home
so swiftly, so deftly and so deadly.
Americans demonstrated in the days following
September 11, that it should also be remembered as
a time that strengthened the fabric of this country
through resolve, patriotism and sacrifice. It should
serve us well today to recall those' days and the
unity that brought us collectively through a national
tragedy.

The driver of a 2005 Nissan was transported to an area hospital last Tuesday after
another driver reportedly clipped the sport utility vehicle. Alachua Police officers
said initial evaluations of the accident point to signs that the driver of a 1992 Dodge
minivan failed to yield the right-of-way to the driver of the Nissan. The minivan,
police say, was pulling off of NW 133rd Terrace on to U.S. Highway 441 southbound.
The driver of the Nissan SUV meanwhile was already traveling southbound on U.S.
441. The dodge minivan clipped the back of the Nissan, causing the SUV to spin and
the driver to lose control. The SUV flipped over before coming to a rest on the driver
side in the northbound turn lane of the highway. The minivan appeared to sustain
minor damage and the driver and passengers of the vehicle seemingly escaped
unscathed. There were no passengers in the Nissan SUV.

There isn't any legal
limit on how many time
or how long a case can be
delayed, and in the case
of this trial, Grapski has
already waived his right to
a speedy trial.
Cervone said although
the State Attorney's Office
might have wished to object
to the delays, "It really is
useless if the court grants it
anyway. I have to ethically
respond to whatever the
defense lawyer requests."


"But this case is way
above the norm," Cervone
said of the length of time it
as dragged on.
The State Attorney also
noted that if the judge in
the case denied requests for
reschedules, it could leave
open a door for appeals by
the defense. Allowing the
requests, no matter how
many, helps to remove that
issue as a potential reason
for appeal.
Cervone remains


unconcerned about the
availability of witnesses
'for the case in the future,
saying that he was confident
that witnesses called by
his office would not likely
forget the events that
occurred in August 2007.
"Many of the witnesses
in this case are in law
enforcement, and they tend
to have a heightened sense
of responsibility to the
justice system," he said.

A6 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2009


Continuedfom page Al Local program offers alternative to layoffs


at Prime Conduit. "Now it's just' the
uncertainty of when you don't have job."
Since October, the pipe plant has laid
off 75 percent of its workforce, leaving
just 25 employees left at the plant. As
suppliers of telephone, electrical and
sewage piping for new infrastructure, plant
manager Michael Ellis said the freeze on
construction has lowered the demand for
his product.
"We are still optimistic," Ellis said.
"But now your income from selling
your product just can't cover the cost of
operating, and we had to trim down."
While analysts report slow signs of a
recovering economy, the job market is one
of the last sectors to turn around as the U.S.
unemployment rate reached 9.7 percent
in August, according to Friday's' Labor
Department's report.
In Alachua County, July ended with a
7.6 percent unemployment rate, still below
the Florida average of 1.0.7 percent.
And as consumers avoid luxuries to
afford the necessities, cutbacks in spending
have cost Guy Summers his job.
After four years as an engine operator
for Hunter Marine Corp., a sailboat,
manufacturer in Alachua, he was laid
off this summer along with nearly 200
employees before him.
"Now I go through newspapers, online
looking for jobs, but there's nothing out
there," said Summers, who sacrificed
weekend fishing trips and health insurance
to support his family after his job loss.
His old company sells 50 foot luxury
sailboats to dealers all over the world and

employs workers with skills from carpentry
to administration. But with banks wary to
lend financing to customers, the company
produced only 200 boats in 2008, down
from the prime years of 500.
"We have a lot of orders from people,"
said personnel manager Bill Riviere.
"They just can't get financing to get the big
money from the big boys for the boats."
Some local companies have ignited
work programs to cut back on their

employees' hours without having to let
them go all together.
Sandvik Mining and Construction in
Alachua was the first to install the Short
Time Compensation Program from Florida
Works agency. Employees in the program
work four days per week and receive
government funded unemployment pay for
the fifth work day.
"The employees definitely benefit
because now they depend on that as a

source of funding," said Donna Burdge,
Human Resources Director for Sandvik
Mining and Construction.
But for those left looking for work like
Charles Langston, it may not be easy to
be dropped in a bleak labor market after
decades with a steady job.
"Looking for a job right now is like
waiting for a train where there aren't any
tracks," he said.


APD partly blamed for 2007 accident


By PATRICIA HOYOS
Today Reporter
ALACHUA - The Alachua Police
Department was found negligent, along
with three other parties, in a crash that
resulted in the death of a truck driver two
years ago.
The accident occurred Oct. 12, 2007
around 7 a.m. when southbound traffic on
1-75 was being directed to U.S. Highway
441 because of an earlier accident.
Stephen R. Bogue was driving an
International semi truck and crashed it into
the rear of a Kenworth semi. The Kenworth
semi, which was reportedly carrying
chicken, then struck a van transporting
Lake Cir V.A. Hospital patients, to
dGh*'ville The accident happened jiu-s
north ofAlachua's exit 399.
An Alachua County jury assigned 35
percent blame each to APD and to the
V.A. transport van, with the remaining 30
percent of blame divided equally between

Main Street businesses.
He said the city was
concerned about hurting
local businesses in the area
while construction was
underway, so the contract
documents for the project
include language requiring
the contractor to minimize
disruption to the parking
area.
The project is currently
in the bid phase. New
said the city anticipates
construction to begin later
in the fall, probably in
November or December.
The construction will
most likely last less than
three weeks, he said.
At an estimated of
project cost* of around
$94,000, Alachua is
receiving a grant of about
$70,000 from the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) to help
foot the bill.
The city is also looking
to reconstruct NW 150th
Avenue between State Road
235 and Main Street. New
said design drawings for
that project are currently
under review.
Planned improvements
will include sidewalks on
both sides of NW 150th
Avenue, New said. The
plan also calls for curbing
and stormwater conveyance
facilities that will mitigate
the flooding that occurs.
Once the design is
finalized and approved,
the project will enter the
bid phase, possibly as
soon as the end of the
year. This would mean that
construction could begin in
the late spring time frame.
This project will
be funded by the
City's Community
Redevelopment Agency,
known more commonly
as the Downtown


Bogue and the drive of the Kenworth
semi. APD was found negligent for not
diverting traffic off 1-75 properly.
FL Transportation Inc. was not held
accountable for the incident
Declining to comment about the
accident, APD spokeswoman Detective
Carrie Lund said, "We are in current
litigation, therefore I cannot discuss the
case."
The trial culminated a lawsuit filed in
November 2008 by Claudette DeRossette
and her husband Roby DeRossette,
passengers in the van who suffered
injuries, against FL Transportation Inc., the
company that that employed Bogue.
Bogue, who was en route to Orlando
from Georgia, died oh the scene when both
trucks caught on fire. The 10 passengers in
the van and the other truck driver suffered
injuries as well.

stark truth is that just 3
percent of molestation in
children under the age of

children ages 6' to 11 are
due to strangers.
More - often than not,

Even though the subject
is difficult for some parents
to discuss with their

to start teaching children

Tell your child that if
someone wants to give them
a bad or secret touch, then
they should get away and
come tell you immediately.


Describe bad and secret
touches in a way they will
understand. These are
touches in a private area of
the body, like any part of

Communion Through Devotion, Obedience and Love


Christianity seems to
be going off track with its
definitions and the way
it thinks in regards to the
Christian l i fe. For example,
the Christian life is seen as
a birthright and that it is
also a personal decision.
The danger in this way of
thinking is evident and it is
seen in the weak spiritual
condition that' exists in
many of today's modem
churches.
That Christianity is
a birthright comes about
much the same way as
the prosperous people of
a country like the United
States begin to think that
S every, citizen is entitled to
the privileges that have
been earned by the labor
of their forefathers. This
concept says that the fruit
of another mah's labor is
an ifilnheritance that should
be given to those with less.
When you apply this way
of thinking to government,
it is called socialism; but,
this type of welfare-is never
spoken of in Scripture, in


a religious sense. There
is nothing in Church
Tradition or Scripture.
that encourages, a person
to count the
Faith of their ..

and love. Consider this
petition, "Lord of all
power and might, who art
the author and giver of all
good things; Graft in our
hearts the love of thy name,
increase in us true religion,
nourish all goodness, and
of thy great mercy keep us
in the same through Jesus
Christ our Lord." God is
the giver of our spiritual
life, He is the keeper of
our spirit, and we're made
custodians to increase
the initial work of God
by passionate prayer and
humble obedience.
This is reinforced by
the Epistle of Romans 6:19.
The Righteousness of Christ
isn't simply a mysterious
heavenly reality; it must be
embodied by the members
of Christ on earth. We are
expected, as recipients of
God's grace and partakers
in the life of Christ, to
become truly what we
profess to be. According to
Saint Paul, we are free from
sin and must demonstrate
.the fruit of righteousness.


If the Pharisees attempted
to be the embodiment of
the Law of Moses under
their own strength, how
much more should we
be keepers of God's Law
and standard-bearers of
righteousness, since we
have been infused with the
life and righteousness of
Jesus Christ by the Holy
Spirit abiding within us?
The Gospel 'of Saint
Matthew, Chapter 5:20,
f.f., drives home this point
with real clarity.. When
we read about the feeding
of the multitudes, we
should think about the Old
Testament prophet, Moses,
the giver of the Law, a
very type of Jesus Christ,
feeding the multitudes in
the wilderness with the
manna that came from
heaven. It was a heavenly
and miraculous food for
their journey, but it only
gave them nourishment for
their bodies.
A greater gift has
been given to us in Holy
Communion, the Bread that
came down from Heaven,
in Christ Jesus. This isn't
.simple bread for our earthly
pilgrimage; it's the life of
God Almighty, distributed


after the example of Jesus
Christ at the Last Supper. It
nourishes us in spirit so that
we can embrace the Law of
God in our hearts, keeping
His commandments by the
strength of His Spirit, and
showing forth the fruits of
new life. As the manna in
the wilderness called the
people to continue in their
pilgrimage by its sustaining
power, we are expected to
be. better participants in
the grace of God feeding
upon the Body and Blood
of Christ, so that we can
carry out the call of God
and live righteous lives as
a testimony to the Truth of
Jesus Christ.
The Church was
divinely established to
be a haven, to feed the
pilgrims and disciples of
.Jesus Christ so that they
might bear the fruit of good
living, embrace the Law
within their hearts, and call
others to living communion
with a loving and merciful
God. Let the. Law be
written in our hearts by the
Holy Spirit and live the life
of Christ by the grace of
God, bringing glory to His
name.
