HIGH SPRINGS - In a dark
warehouse,, just far enough from the
center of town to'be comfortably obscure,
a steady shower of peanuts has begun to
flood the concrete floor, aiming to reach
the 160 foot ceiling.
It's only September, so the peaks of
the peanut mountains can still be seen at
eye level when the mill's manager, Brett
Waters, slides open the shed door to trade
darkness for sunlight.
But by December,- peanuts will pile
high to an abyss where catching a glimpse
of the top of each seven million pound
heap can only be done with imagination.
For Waters, September starts the season
when peanut farmers come countywide to
sell him semitrailers full of their freshly'
harvested crops. The peanuts, are passed
to his federal inspector who samples
and grades each batch before they spend


* eight to ten hours in industrial dr)ers The
warehouses are home to the peanuts for
the next four months before they graduate

Commissioner Larry Travis
said.
But opinions on the $13
million budget's strength
were not as consistent as
'opinions on the tax rate as
the budget .passed with a
3-2 vote.
The final hearing
came nearly two weeks
after Commissioner Diane
Shupe presented officials
with an additional $39,000
in cuts of what she called
nonessential items. These
proposed reductions were
aimed at employee training
and travel, overtime pay,
the annual employee


Commissioners split on budget


appreciation dinner, fire
department increases and a
5 percent pay reduction for
commissioners.
Gabriel, Vice Mayor
Byran Williams and
Commissioner Larry Travis
voted to pass the budget
without Shupe's reductions,
saying the bare-bones
budget was thin enough.
"This is a budget
that made the city bleed,"
Gabriel said, referring to
departmental cuts that were
already made to prevent
losing services or staff.
Shupe and
Commissioner William


Coughlin were the two
opposing votes, both noting
they would not support the
budget as is when local
governments may still see
financial troubles long after
an economic recovery.
"I'm not comfortable
with the distance we
have to travel next year,"
Coughlin said. "Next year
will be based on some hard
choices, but I hope I'm
wrong."

The ADA Seal


Q: What is the purpose of
the ADA seal?
A: For dentists and
consumers the American
Dental Seal of Acceptance
is a trusted designation that
a dental product is both safe
and effective. Some 400
companies participate in the
Seal program. They commit
to a rigorous program of
testing and evaluating
products as to their 'safety
and effectiveness. They have
to provide ,objective data
that testifies to whatever
promotional claims they
make. Manufacturers must
also make clinical trials as
required by ADA guidelines.
Roughly 1,300 products
carry the Seal. About 40


percent of them are products
sold to consumers, like
toothpaste, toothbrushes
and other dental appliances.
The rest are products used
or prescribed by dentists,
like antibiotics or restorative
materials. An ADA seal
award is valid for three
years. At the end of that
time the manufacturer has
to reapply. More than 100
experts, including member
of the ADA's Council of
Scientific Affairs and ADA
staff scientists, conduct the
reviews. Talk with your
dentist for more information
about the ADA seal and
for advice on products you
should use at home.

Take action to reduce flu infections

Today Reporter "The viruses in the says Jackie Johnson, public most notably your eyes, viruses. If a tissue is isolate," he says. "No on


ALACHUA COUNTY
- With influenza season
fast approaching and the
dreaded HIN1 swine flu
virus already spreading
throughout Alachua
County and most of the
country, certain preventive
measures may help curb the
outbreak of infection. Here
are four ways to minimize
your risk of illness this
year.
1) Get immunized.
There may be no
more straightforward
approach to avoiding the
flu this season than to get
an immunization. The
vaccines typically come in
two different forms: a shot
and a spray. The spray, or
FluMist, is relatively new
to the market, but research
has shown that it is equally
as effective as the shot
at preventing infection.
However, the Center for
Disease Control (CDC)
reports that not all seasonal
flu vaccines will protect
against the 2009 H1N1


vaccine change each year
based on international
surveillance and scientists'
estimations about which
types and strains of viruses
will circulate in a given
year," the CDC Web site
states.
This means that an
alternate H IN I vaccination
may be necessary if that
strain is not included
in the regular seasonal
immunization. The
Alachua County Health
Department is offering
seasonal vaccinations for
$25 at both the Gainesville
and Alachua locations. The
H1N1 vaccination will
be offered free of charge
when it becomes available
later this fall, says Assistant
Director-Paul Myers.
But children in Alachua
County don't have to wait
that long. The FluMist
vaccine is available for free
to all students in the school
district with a signed
parental consent form.
"It is going to be


information officer for
Alachua County Public
Schools. "And it's a gentle
mist, which kids much
prefer to shots.".
Johnson explains there
is an additional benefit to
the FluMist immunization.
"Another advantage is
that our UF doctors tell us it
also offers some protection
against swine flu, which is
a really good thing because
we just don't know yet
when a swine flu vaccine
will be widely available to
students," she says.
2) Keep your hands
clean.
Everyday actions
such as shaking -hands
and opening doors can
be the most effective
way of picking up free-
riding germs. But it's
what happens with those
germs on your hands that
can spread infection. Dr.
Henry Baker, chairman of
the molecular genetics and
microbiology department
at the University of Florida,


allows the virus to infiltrate
your system.
"It's really the mucus
membrane that the virus
is penetrating," he says.
"It's the eyes that are more
dangerous than the mouth,
which is slightly acidic."
The act of sneezing
or coughing emits a
contaminated aerosol into
the environment, B-iker
says. If that aerosol comes
in contact with the mucus
membrane, then you can be
infected.
"If you're worried
about contracting the flu,"
he. says. "And let's say a
cashier sneezes and hands
you money, really the first
thing you should do is wash
your hands as quickly and
as properly as possible."
3) Practice healthy
habits.
Practicing healthier
habits can go a long way
towards preventing illness.
Simple suggestions like
using tissues to cough
or sneeze into can help


unavailable, coughing or
sneezing into the crook of
your arm instead of your
hand can help stop the
spread of infection.
"We are really
encouraging our citizens
to practice good cough and
sneeze etiquette," Myers
says.
Another way to help
stave off infection is to
make sure you are getting
enough sleep, while
reducing stress. Taking
steps toward a healthier
diet, drinking plenty of
liquids and getting your
daily vitamins can 'help
boost your immune system.
4) Self-quarantine.
Sometimes infection is
unavoidable. If you feel flu-
like symptoms, you should
consult your doctor as soon
as possible. Treat yourself
as if you are sick, even if
you may not be. The best
advice Dr. Baker gives is to
stay at home.
"If people are sick or
are showing symptoms,


ef-
ie


does anyone a favor by
going into work sick, going
to school sick."
Baker emphasizes that
the risk of infecting others
is much greater if you try
to continue daily activities
while experiencing flu-like
symptoms.
"It's really not good in
terms of public health," he
says. "The recommendation
is to stay home until one's
temperature is at a normal
level with out the use of
pharmaceuticals."
Myers agrees,
saying the focus of the
Alachua County Health
Department's message is to
avoid contact with others if
flu-like symptoms occur.
"The main point that
were trying to get out is that
if you are ill, please stay at
home," he says. "That is
the primary public health
message."

country where they turn into
candy and peanut butter.
But even after 36 years
of working for the Golden
Peanut Company in High'
Springs, Waters says the
people who share their city
with a peanut fortress still
may not know exactly what
goes on there.
"People still come by and
ask to buy a bag of peanuts,"
Waters said. "We just say
'No, that's not what we do
here.'"'
The mill. has been a
buying point for growers
since 1932, and the handful
of Golden workers have been
running the cycle of buying,
storing and selling peanuts
ever since, no exceptions.
But farmers like Treyor
Bass have cause .to make an
exception to the routine this
year. The fertile grounds that
have made Florida the fourth
largest peanut producing
state in the U.S. created an
overflow of peanuts in 2008's
harvest, and trying to sell
peanuts this season has put
some farmers out of the game.
"This is the first year I've
never had any peanuts," said
Bass, a 28-year-old farmer
from Newberry who has
raised the crop since 2002.
"I can't merit the risk of
the investment because I'm
trying to make my mark."
Traditionally a profitable
crop for farmers, peanuts this
year are being bought by mills
like Golden from farmers for
at least $100 less per ton as
most manufacturing plants
are still stocked with last
year's crop.
"Last year we were in a
situation where the ,supply
of peanuts was not that great
so farmers probably planted
25 percent more nationwide
than our average," said Ken
Barton, executive director
for Florida Peanut Producers
Association. "In the end we
had -the largest peanut crop
in history in 2008, and that
large supply of peanuts has
affected this.year's prices.",
The overflow has made
farmer Tom Shaw plant just
300 acres of peanuts on his
Alachua farm, down from the
normal hanrest of 800 acres.
He said mills are offering
him close to $400 per ton this
year instead of the $525 he
has relied on in the past.


acres of peanuts planted in Florida down 35,000 this year
According to the
United States Department
of Agriculture, there are
2.13 billion pounds of 2008


peanuts in commercial
storage. as of July, and the
overflow has caused growers
in Florida to plant 35,000
acres less than last year.
Although a salmonella
outbreak at a Georgia peanut
plant in 2008 shook the
industry and caused peanut
butter sales to plummet 25
percent in February, Barton
said the main .cause for the
peanut overload was good
farming. Nationwide, 2008's
crop set a record with 3,416
pounds of peanuts produced
per acre; which blew past
the last record set in 2003 at
3,159 pounds per acre.
"It doesn't sound like
a lot, but that's a. lot of
peanuts," Barton said. "The
consumption of peanut butter
is now back up significantly,
but even if we continue
to enjoy the increase in
consumption and demand of
peanut butter, we still have
more than enough to supply
-that demand from last year."
But back at Golden
Peanut in High Springs, the
steady flow of peanuts is still

as it has for 77 years.,
The work keeps Waters
running the mill from 7
a.m.; to 8 p.m. most days,
somewhat unaware of the
cutback some local farmers


might be making. He credits
the roughly 30 glowers he has
contracted, who keep peanuts
as a staple crop no matter
what the market looks like.

Hawthorne narrows city manager search


By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE
Hawthorne took a step
forward in its search for a
new city manager Tuesday
as the city manager panel
presented resumes of
the five most qualified
candidates from the
original, field of more than
60 applicants.
In the past couple of
weeks, the city manager
panel, which includes a
handful of Hawthorne
citizens chosen by the
previous commiission,
narrowed down the
original 61 to 16 and
then eight. Three of the
final eight candidates
removed themselves from


consideration and took
other jobs.
Among the final five
candidates is Interim
City Manager Linda Rice
Chapman. Commissioners
praised her work in the past
few months of service.
"I've never seen anyone
do what Linda has done,"
Deloris Roberts said. "I've
not seen anyone leave us
with money in the account."
Larry McDaniels, who
served as the facilitator
for the city manager panel,
pointed out that Chapman
has little city government
experience. If it weren't for
her recent work as interim
city manager, she would
not have met the basic
qualifications..


which candidates to
interview and deciding on
a salary. The commissioner
can interview the members
of the final five or any of the
other applicants that didn't
make the city manager
panel's final cut.

AIO


Chapman's background
is not in city government but
in labor and employment
law. She previously worked
as assistant city attorney for
the city of Miami.
The 'most qualified
candidate on paper, the i
city manager panel and'
commissioners agreed, is
Phillip W. Waldron.
Waldron has been in the
private sector since 2002
as principal of Waldron
Consulting Services.
Before that, he served
as city manager of Plant
City, where he maintained
an operational budget in
excess of $49 million.
Lori A. Serino worked
the past four years as a
community development
manager' for the City of
Deltona Planning and
Development Services.
She specialized in state and
federal grants and managed
a multi-year budget that
totaled $7.9 million for the
2008-09 fiscal year.
Jeffrey I. Naftal
previously worked as
town "manager of Juno
Beach from 2005 to 2008'.
The panel said he was
selected as one of the top
five because of his specific
experience as manager of a
community that he helped
progress into what they'd
like to see Hawthorne grow
into.
Edward F. Smyth Jr.
previously worked as
deputy city manager in
Leesburg. He has more
than 17 years of local
government experience in a
variety of fields. The panel
chose him because he is a
certified public manager.
The. City of Debary is also
curf ntly'looking at him as
a potential city manager.
The city manager
panel and commissioners '
debated � which criteria were
most important and wlrchN,4
candidate would best fit the
city's current needs.
"I'm really heavy on
not just fixing , today's
problems but establishing a
framework for the future so
that we can begin to grow,"
said the Rev. Eugene
Herring, city manager
panel member.
Herring said Serino has
not only written grants,
but she's executed them
through a full cycle creating
long-terin results.
Stan Kitching, also a
member of the city manager
panel, argued that grant
writing and growth projects
might be five years down ,
the road, and cited more
immediate problems such
as cutting the debt, helping
the city operate smoothly
and cracking down on
corruption.
Deloris Roberts pointed
out that a candidate's
qualifications don't
guarantee success and that
honesty and integrity are
the most important qualities
in a potential city manager.
She used former City
Manager Chad Shryock
as an example. "He had a
glorious resume, but look
where he left us."
Commissioners agreed
they were looking for a
candidate who could handle
all the different aspects of
the city manager job.
"The city manager
in a small community
like this has to be a lot of
everything," Surrency said.
The commission will
discuss the rest of the
process of choosing the
next city manager Monday.
This includes picking

The True Sign of Repentance


Everyone has heard a
sermon about the prodigal
son. It's one of the parables
most frequently preached,
and one of the most popular
themes from the Gospels.
In Gospel of Saint
Luke, Chapter 15, the
parable of the Prodigal Son
is the THIRD of THREE
parables that Christ taught.
To understand the Parable
of the Prodigal clearly, we
have to look at all three
parables. In all of them
there is one single theme, so
they could be described as
just one, three-fold parable,
which all speak to us-the
recovery of that which was
lost, the resulting joy for
the one who was directly
affected by the loss and the
desire to share that joy with
others. .
It's important that we
understand the first two
verses of Luke' chapter
15, because they .form the
circumstance for this three-
fold parable; including the
Prodigal Son.'
15:1 Then drew near


unto him -all the publicans
and sinners to hear him
(2) and the Pharisees and
scribes murmured saying,
This man
receiveth
sinners and
earth with

series of LEAS
parables All Saints
has' one Church, Ga
theme and A parishl
it's directed Christian I
to sinners Chu
and the self-
righteous. Taking a quick
look atthe first two parables,
one was about a lost sheej
and the other one is about
a lost piece of silver. They
demonstrate that what was
lost was found because, of
a thorough search. We've
all searched for something


that's extremely valuable
to us. If you've ever lost a
wallet, your keys, a ring or
maybe a pet, you know that

everything else

something
that is really

we'll search,
using any
means possible
to find it. The
joy that we
get in finding
something
that we've lost
equals the value

placed on the


lost item.
The first two parables
also teach us something
about the joy that goes
with the recovery of a lost
important item. Not only is
there great joy, but in both
cases, the joy was shared
with others. And Jesus

finishes, in verses 7 and 10,
that in heaven there is also '
great joy when a sinner
repents. There couldn't
be great joy if there wasn't
great value placed on
the lost item, and there
wouldn't be any rejoicing
without the careful search.
The *.Parable of the
Prodigal presents, the
same theme of a lost item
and recovery; the only
difference is that in this
parable, the lost item was
a person. 'And it was love
that brought the lost item
(the Son) back to the one
who had lost it (the Father).
We learn first that
the son was full of
ungratefulness towards
the love of the Father. He
took his inheritance, an4d
used them improperly on
worldly pleasures. But
then a famine hits the
area where he went "and
he's left in poverty. We
should learn from this that
everything we accumulate
in this life, our talents, and
achievements will be gone
someday. Life is short and
our possessions can't pave
the way. to heaven, even if
they add to our pleasures on
earth.
The prodigal joined


himself to a citizen where he
was and ended up, feeding
the man's pigs, he's hit
rock bottom. Fortunately,
he realized the depth of his
sin, and determined that he
would humbly return to his
Father as a servant. This is
the true sign of repentance,
to see our wretchedness
and recognize the goodness
of God. Remarkably, the
return of the son is met with
words of grace. from the
Father instead of a lecture
and there was an incredible
joy that the Father wants to
share with others.
But, then there's the
older son who was working
out in the field. He was
angry with the Father for
the celebration at the return
of the lost son. Here we
see the importance of the
beginning two verses of this
-Chapter; the parable was
spoken to sinners and the
self-righteous. It was the
sinners who were expected
to see their poverty and
need for repentance, but
it was the Pharisees and
scribes, the self-righteous,
who were to understand
the older son who wanted
nothing of relationship with
the father but only approval
for, his work. There's no


joy in the son who worked
to 'earn favor with his
Father, and there can be
no joy for those who see
heaven as something to be
attained as the reward for
their upright and moral life,
their many works, and their
strict religious life. '
This parable is meant
to help us understand
God's love for us. Until
we realize our depravity
and understand that it's
what separates us from the
blessings of God, we're
prone to wander in our
own lusts and sins. The
blessing is in relationship
with God,, and there can't
be relationship while we
wander in sin or work in
the field. The goal is to aim
for the knowledge of God
that comes from prayer and
the reading of God's Word.
This knowledge will not
only sustain us in our life,
but it will result in great
joy-joy that you, in turn,
will be compelled to share
with others. There is joy
in heaven for a repentant
sinner, and there must be
corresponding joy on earth
for those who 'come to
know and receive God.

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
