final five candidates for city manager
The final candidates include current
Interim City 10anager linda Rice

manager of Plailt City; Lori A. Serino,
who worked as community develop ment
manager for Deltona; Edward F. Smyth Jr.,
former _deputy city manager of Leesbur;
and Jeffrey I. Naftal, former town manager
ofJuno Beach
The commission attempted to whittle
down the candidates to three for interviews,
. but decided to leave it at five because each
candidate had soinething unique to offer


Hawthorne.
.
The comMission also decided to set
the salary at $65,000 a $15,000 increase
from the current city manager salary.
Commissioner Matthew Surrency said
a raise was; justified because a quality city
manager would more than make up the
$15,00() difference in salary.
The City of Alachua recently set its
city manager's salary at $120,000, but
Alachua also has a much larger budget

there. You can probably fast .
forward it, till you get to them.
The film .has quite ra bit
of violence in it, although it
is cartoon type of violence.
Nevertheless, I'm not sure I
would recommend this film for
family viewing.
The DVD comes with some.
nice extras on it. There are two
commentaries you can listen to
while watching the film: There
is a conversation with two of the
creators of the series, which I
found interesting. Then there ii a
whole featurette on the concept of

Hue Jackman stars as.Logan
- The oli erine from the X-Men
SW in the ne\v DVD released
by 20* Century Fox.
The film starts when Logan
is a little boy during the middle
of the 194 Century. He and is
brother possess the<^ ability of
growing extremely strong nails
from their fingers. When their
ather visits them- in the night,
he shoots their legal guardian
whom Logan and his brother ha
believed was their father. His
brother is so enraged hel kills him
with his nails. As the real father is
dying at the hands of his son, he


reveals that he is their father.
At this point, the film shows
us how Logan and his Vrpther are
involved in various wars from the
civil war to the World War I to
World Waril, to Vietnam. Both of
them are "discovered" after all of
these years and they are recruited
into a special group of mutsitits
who conduct special.assignments
for the United States goveminent.
All is well until Logan starts to
hate misgivings abpitt some of
the tasks he must citrry out while
on assignment intagos, Nigeria.
. His brother, decides to stay
with the special forces, but
Logan decides to leave. The
brothersidespise each other, and
throughout the whole film. they


are trying to kill each other, but
unsuccessfully. ?
The film was pretty good, if
you like cartoon based type of
films. There are a lot of twists and
turns to the story and it moves
pretty fast. As with many of these
films, I think they could state
their motivations for what they
are doing more explicitly. The
viewer is going through quite an
experience, taking in all of the
special effects, and the point of-
the story is a bit lost in all of this.
But that might be just me.
One thing about this film is
that in order to understand the
full story, you do want to watch
the final credits, because there
are two parts ofthe film included

A second garden was

and today most gardeners
eat their produce, but
the. excess is sold at the
Farmers Market to benefit
the gardens. Between the
two community gardens
there are 55 plots shared by
33 gardeners.


Burden said the two a

But not everyone agrees that temperatures

during the period -between Sept. 16, 2000
and May 29, 2001.
The Gordon family complied by fix-
ing the violation but never paid the fine.
Throughout the past eight years, the vio-
lation was ignored by the city along with
the many others that make up the current
$225,000 in liens.
The commission resolved the case by
a unanimous vote to cut the fine in halfto
$1,280 to be paid over 12 months.
One of the factors in the decision was
the money invested by city employees on
this particular case, which Code Enforce-

said. "Hopefully if the economy gets on

Owners of the Alachua Quality Inn
and Days Inn inotels located at U.S. 441

over the higher tax fate. They said the

Commissioners considered several
other factqis when deciding whether to
reduce the fine including the gravity of
the violation, the actions takey to correct
the violation and the record of previous
violations.
Commissioner DeLoris Roberts sup,-

fort made on behalf of the Gordon family
to rectify the problem. She said she didn't

comes in will get a fee reduction.
Commissioner Matthew Surrency

sportug their monster
burger T-shirts.. They
wanted another.
Surprisingly, Rick has
never earned a T-shirt.
Lately be sticks to salads.
In the last decade,
maintaining a healthy
lifestyle. has become more
of a concerri for Ricl(than
it used to be---doctor's
orders.s
"I've always been a
big boy," he said. In high
school he was the largest
person on the football
team.
Three times out of the
week his lunch consists
of roinaine lettuce, any
fresly vegetables, a cup
ch d.
of Parmesan eese an
half a cup of blue-cheese
dressmg.
'That way I keep
myself from weighing 3()0
pounds."he revealed.,
.Rick participated in
a study known as "The
WalkingProject"conducted
by the University of Florida
about nine years ago.
Within the first six months,
he had lost 20 pounds.
Since then, working
out at the gym has become
part of his ddily routine. He
goes about five times :per
week. Every two weeks,
a massage therapist visits
Rick at his office to "work
oint the kinks."
"The best stress
reliever in the world," he
emphasizes.
bn the bther side of
Main Street, across from
the restaurant, a stack of
laundered khaki shorts lay
on the couch in his office,


through with it. Just ask
any Alachua resident, and
they'll tell you Conestogas
has been an honored
success. The Alachua
Chamber of Commerce
named Rick businessman
- of the year in both 1991
and 2006.
"Hey Jack! Hey Pat!
How ya'll doin'?" Rick
cuts our conversation to
greet some old pals-
regulars at the restaurant.
Jack is a retired Alachua
chief of police, coming in
for lunch with his wife.
They carry on chitchatting,
and Rick finally lets Jack
and his wife proceed to
a table, but not before
offering a double senior-
discount,
His standards of service
are based on the golden
rule: treat customers the
way you would want to be
treated.
"The customer may not
always be right, but they're
always the customer," he
assures me.
In these 21 years,
Rick has had countless
customers., Even Tiger
Woods and Florida's own
Danny \Vuerffel have
made their appearances.
Personally signed menus
are framed and hung in the
restaurant.
Bill Willy Mashburn,
an afternoon' regular, had
Jerry Clower's southern
drawl. He helped Rick
with advertisements on the
radio. Though he passed
aviay some years after
Conestogas first opened,
Rick insists he was a great
friend and mentor.
Once while sitting
with Bill after lunch, a
construction worker left
dirty tracks on C8nestogas
freshly cleaned carpet.
When Rick made a friss,
Bill answered, "I hope you
have to clean the carpet


every week," a comment
anticipating Rick's success.
A labeled picture of Bill
hangs in the restaurant
above dozens of sport-team
sponsorship plaques.
The walls of red
brick are almost hidden
by an abundance of old
photographs, antique
guns and even a Mexican
sombrero. Most were
gifts from friends and
customers. A wooden bowl
of shelled peanuts on every
table gives the place a
rural atmosphere, and the
country music reinforces it.
It wasn't always this
way. At one point, 8.5-
by-11 inch snapshots of
customers covered the
walls. Eventually the
pictures were taken down--
too many customers. ,
Eventhemenuhasfaced
its share ofmodifications.
"Over the 20 years,
we've had everything from
Alaskan.king crab legs to
ostrich to gator," he tells
me. .
Some years ago, a
call fiom a Wall Street
Journal reporter resulted
in a colossal addition to
the Conestogas menu:
The Main Street Monster
Burger.
The reporter had
informed Rick about a
36-ounce burger being
served at the Pilot Butte
Drive-Inn Restaurant in
Bend, Ore. At the time,
Conestogas offered the
Stogie Burger, a. 16-ounce
patty that proved no match
to the burger at the Pilot
Butte.
The MSMB,. as they
now refer to it, is three
Stogie patties on a big
bun--48 ounces of beef
cooked any way the
customer wishes.
"I would give it to them
raw if they wanted it that
way," he promises.

He says fried calamari

The nearly 130 year-old structure,
originally built in Jonesville, was moved
to the city around the ttitn of the century
by Thomas ICincaid, who opened a local
convenience store. Plans ard for the
building to be renovated into a museum,
commemorating much of Newberry's

"If"s one of the.only buildings to
survive the fires of the early 1900s,"
Hendrix said. "It really has a lot of history
in it." .
Hendrix added that the community
has expressed interest in the renovation
through donations, and the city is working
on working grants to obtain funds for the
reconstruction.
'The Newberry Fall Market Festival
is a spin-offoi'the city's heralded Unity
Day, an effort to bridge community gaps
and eliminate neighborhood problems
like the use and sale of drugs, said city
commissioner Alena Lawson.
"The purpose was to unify the city
and its different cultures," she said."The
statement was made that we want to weed
out the drugs and turn to things that are
inore productive lor our kids."
Lawsonexplainedthatthefestivalhas
grown to incorporate almost every aspect
of life in the city.
"It's one of the things that brings the

Christ, the .sanctifier and
High Priest of all creation.
We were placed on this
earth after, aird only after,
it had been fashioned for
our place and participation
in Creation. And the
purpose for Creation is
summarized in three words,
fellowship, labor, and rest.
Our participation with
creation and the Creator
shows mankind restored to
life and meaning with the
created order, and we find
meaning in our labor since
we are joining ourselves to
beauty and wonder,
Btit something is
still missing, something
critical-rest. There is the
word of Sabbath in Jesus
Christ. He is the One in
whom we put all of our
weariness and find that our
labors are really fruitful
and meaningful. In. the
Trinitarian rite of baptism,
our assurance is that the
person joined to the Livbxg
Water is a child of God, in
relationship, participation,

anod stnd Wceti e, 1


to participate, to labor,
to enter into our jobs,
relationships, studies, and
hobbies with the promise
of meaning. God didn't
create us to observe
relationship or nature, or to
watch the labor of animal
life, but rather to find. joy
in relationship and work,
which gives rise to worship,
to true thanksgiving---to
Holy Commurf ion.
The Sabbath, or rest, is
also joined to us when we
take time from our labors
and kneel in Communion,
invited to fellowship in the
labors of God. For any of
us to think of worship as
the there act of preaching
and singing is to miss the
meaning of the seventh day,
for which we were created.
The true Sabbath worship
is entering the Incarnation,
Crucifixion, Resurrection,
and Ascension of Tesus
Christ.
Let us understand
why we worship, who we
worship, and how such an
act draws us into certain
truths that speak powerfully
to the world we live in
and into the lives of those
around us.
# # #


loneliness and depression
or even anarchy. Without
individual experience,
we're left with nothing
but history and
community
where the
.relationships
become
impersonal.
I would say
that .when all
of us thought
of Christmas,
without
realizing it, we
included the
OHN E. unity of history,.
RE community y,
nglican and individual
nesVille. ex perierice .

pistchoepal And so it is with
h the Sacrament
of Baptism.
It fulfills the
command of our Lord,


Baptism doesn't make any
sense if it's removed from
the community where it
takes place or ifit's removed
from the historical facts of
the life of Christ, because
the ultimate destination that
we're pointed toward is the
Incarnation, Resurrection,
and Ascension of Jesus
Christ. No one can enter
into Divine life by their
own power, anymore than
they could cause their own
birth, nor can the Church do
it by the power of its own
authority. The minister
directs us to the Creator
of Life, Jesus Christ,
and when the one being
baptized is called in the
name of the Trinity, he is
seen as a true person in the
life of the Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit. This is a life of
sharing and participating;
God with man, and also
person to person,
Every moment of
worship is much more than
history, fact,. and personal
experience. We must
understand the relationship
between the blessing of
baptismal water and the
amazing truth of the event
taking place. It hells
to bring us closer to the

,Mh Hio e nupand


What. is the Christian
Sacrament of Holy Baptism
all aboxit? Is it a social
occasion? Are the family,
friends, and neighbors there
to fulfill an obligation? Are
the church members there
just to.observe an important
event for a particular
family? And what does
this all mean to those being
baptized?
To say, Christmas'
brings certain thoughts to
mind. We might think about
the history of Cfiristmas or
the different events leading
up to Christmas. It might
even lead to thoughts on
Christiaxi history, like the
development of prayers
and hymns. Or we could
think, about Christmas in
terms of'.our own personal
experiences. That's when
we move from. thinking
of a particular moment
on a timeline to placing
ourselves in the experience
and bringing a moment of
the past into the present.
When we do .this, we
guarantee that we will
continue telling the story to


future generations.
Understanding history
and experiencing it in
a personal way really
touches us.
. Christmas is
an experience
of coming
together for
a common
purpose, and
it's more
meaning f u1
when we're
sharing with
others and that
moves into
fellowship. THE VEN.

A local mart was saved
from almost certain doom

him from an upside down
vehicle. .
When questioned, Dillon
responded, "I.ivould gladly

think it's my calling to help
my fellow man "
And when he said he
would gladly do it again -
he means it. Because this
weekend, if you're upside
down in your vehicle, Jason
Dillon will help you get out.
Wade Raulerson Honda,
located on Main Street in
Gainesville, with the help of
Jason Dillon will help upside
down buyers get out of their
current loans and leases.
"I came in the other day
with a vehicle that was so
upside down, I thought Pd
never get rid of it," said a re-
cent customer. "But, good
'ol Jason helped me get out
of it, and got me into a 2007

Toby LePage, an eleven-year-old frontier boy,
has a dream come true when he is given a ride oil the
Arabia, a steamboat headed up the Missouri River.
Toby was sure he was on an adArenture that he would
remember for the rest his life.

Toby comes to understand that, indeed, The River Speaks.


Sun State Federal Credit Union and Alachua
County Today are partnering to biing you "The River
Speaks." The purpose of this campaign is to get young
people reading. Alachua County Today will publish an
8-chapter serialized short story, "The River Speaks"

the project for the weeks completed so that parents can
share the stories ivith their children.


That's when Mr. LePage
made his announcement.
Snapping the reins over Bill's
and Lilly's backs, Toby's
father said the captam or the
Arabiahadinvitedthemrogo
up river.
When the boat arrived
tomormw and the wood was
loaded, Mr. LePage said they
would stay on board. He also
said they would have to work
on the boat in exchange for
the trip.
Hard work did not scare
Toby. Anything for a riverboat
ride.

Riding home with his
father, he thought about
going up river ro see Fort
Leavenworth or Sioux City.
Evenmoreexcitingwouldbe
going all the way up to the
Yellowstone county. He had
heard about the gold mining
camps in the Rocky
Mountains.
Toby's thoughts were
interrupted by his father, who
asked if he would like a
riverboat ride. Toby's eyes lit
up, because that was just
what he was thinking.
Quickly he said it would be a
fine thing to do.

Toby jumped onto the wagon
seat beside his father, and the
wagon wheels began to roll
forward. With their work
donebothmenandbeasts
were glad to go home.
Toby was happy to fuush
work early. He had learned to
tell time by the setting sun,
and he knew it would be
another hour before dark.
As father and son rode
home together, Mr. LePage
complimented has son on his
good work in the woods. He
said there was enough wood
stacked up to make a big load
for the steamboat Arabia that
would stop the next day.
Ever sincelbby could
remember, his father had cut
andsoldfirewoodalongthe
river. Most of it was sold to
steamboat captams who were
hauling passengers and

It was September r856,
and already there were signs
of autumn along the banks of

As he resthd on rap of the
stack of wood, looking
across the river, Taby thought
about what his father had

said that the river speaks. But
