HIGH SPRINGS Despite the
uncertainty that lingers until the last
moment in any. election, the two
candidates chosen for the High Springs
City Commission Tuesday were sure of
their chances from the beginning.
"Honestly yeah, I expected 'it," said
Eric May, surrounded by supporters
decked out in his campaign T-shirts after


his name was attached with the second
highest amount of votes. "Everyone you
talk to was not happy with the present."
At 23 years old; May is one of the
youngest candidates elected to the High
Springs City Commission in local history,
-but it was Dean Davis that received the
majority of votes on Election Day.

Tax credit ups homesaleslocally Cain takes the helm
-Qanefgi man4inn fnvyand avn.n rl -rarfif


By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
ALACHUA COUNTY
Single-Family sales in September
were up 34 percent in Florida
and 41 percent in Gainesville
compared to last year, according
to a sales report from the Florida
Association of Realtors.
One large reason for the
increase is the soon-to-expire
first-time home buyer's tax credit
of $8,000, said John Sebree, vice
president of public policy for the
Florida Association of Realtors.
The tax credit is part of
the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009, also
known as the Federal stimulus
plan.
Since the tax credit went into
effect in January 2009, sales have
been up consistently over last
year's totals throughout Florida,
including Gainesville.


According to the National
Association of Realtors, the
percentage of sales that are from
first-time buyers have increased
from 45.1 percent to 51.5 percent
due to the tax credit.
"In Florida, the home buyer tax
credit has brought in an additional
49,500 buyers into the market
and 146,900 first-time buyers will
be able to take advantage of the
tax credit," according to a press
release.
September, the most recent
totals, have shown the- highest
increase so far, likely because the
buyers are jumping in to beat the
Nov. 30 deadline.
In the city of Alachua, the tax
credit hasn't boosted sales for
most of the year, but there have
been small increases in August
and September as the tax credit

Monday marked long-time City of Alachua employee
Traci Cain's first official day on the job as interim city
manager, and this is the second time Cain has served in
this capacity for the city.


By PATRICIA HOYOS
Today Reporter
ALACHUA After almost 18 years
working for the City of Alachua, Traci
Cain sits behind the interim city manager's
desk once again.
Cain officially took on the duties
of interim city manager Monday. The
Alachua City Commission appointed her
to the position in September and drafted
a contact with her set to expire Feb. 28,
2610.
She is no stranger to the position. Cain
served as the interim city manager in 2002
for a couple of months. She said that those
were more trying times for the city than
they are now. She said the transition so far
has been smooth.
Her resume includes positions ranging
from utilities billing supervisor to director
of the human resource department, among
others. Most recently, she served as the

Root cana
Q: What is root canal
therapy?
SA: Root canal therapy
is a procedure your dentist
can use to save a tooth that.
has diseased or injured
pulp. Decades ago, such
teeth would have been
removed. The pulp is the
soft tissue inside the tooth
that contains blood vessels
and nerves. The pulp
extends from the crown of
the tooth to the tip of the
root in the bone or the jaw.
When the pulp gets injured
or diseased and is not
treated, it dies. The most
common causes for the
problem are a cracked tooth
or a deep cavity. Either of
these circumstances can let


bacteria get into the pulp,
which can lead to infection.
In root canal therapy,
your dentist, or endodontist
- a dentist who specializes
in root canals makes
an opening in the crown
of the tooth, removes the
diseased pulp and may
put medication into the
pulp chamber and root
canals. She will cover the
opening with a temporary
filling, clean out the inside
of the tooth and fill it.
Finally, the tooth gets a
new artificial crown. For
more information on the
effectiveness of root canal
therapy, talk with your
dentist.

participating in the election

Santa Fe home to hi-tech bio-tech education


By JIMMY CLARITY
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Santa Fe High School
unveiled its new $5 million science
building Friday, dedicating the state-of-
the-art facility to school principal Bill
Herschleb.
"I was totally blown-away," Herschleb
said. "That's usually something that's done
for older people, so it makes me feel a little
old, but I am deeply honored."
Aside from the addition of numerous
classrooms, laboratories and lockers,
the new building is also equipped with
advanced .technology used to increase
the speed and scope of science related
education at Santa Fe High.
"I'm most excited about a facility of
this nature available to the kids of this
community because they deserve nothing
but the best," Herschleb said.
Sophisticated laboratory equipment
lets students collect data and display it
on computers instantly, allowing them
to study their experiments in real time.
Computerized student response systems
let students interact with the teacher and
the lesson from moment to moment. They
can answer any questions the teacher
may pose, or input specific questions of
their own that involve the computation or
curriculum.
"The students arerealty iiipressed with
the technology," said Josh Jett, head of
the science department at Santa Fe High.
"The old stigma of us being a little country
school really doesn't apply anymore."
Herschleb said the new science
building is expected to last at least 50
years, adding that much of the rest of the
school is around 50 years old and still very
capable of meeting students' needs.

Santa Fe High School's new $5 million science building features classrooms and laboratories where students can learn the
science and technology used in bio-related research and manufacturing. At Friday's dedication ceremony, the state-of-the-art
facility was dedicated to school principal Bill Herschleb.


"The project was very costly, but it.is a
long term investment," he said.
MM Parrish Construction Company,
the firm hired to undertake the project,
encountered additional expenses in
weatherizing the facility, adding proper
heating, air conditioning, ventilation
and switchgear. Herschleb said the
weatherization -would all but pay for
itself over the life of the building, greatly
reducing electricity consumption: The
school anticipates that the ecologically
friendly facility will receive a .silver
certification from LEED, Leadership in
Energy and Environmental Design, a
government green building council.
"We are very proud of that," Herschleb
said. "This is the finest construction
project I have ever been part of."
SThe principal explained he was
originally trained in the science
field and feels that in order for the
nation to progress with the rest of the
World, more young people need to be
exposed to science and mathematics.
Technology-centered business parks
in the area like Progress Corporate
Park only add the value of the
science building, Herschleb said,


because it gives a real-world relevance to
the subjects taught at Santa Fe High.
The facility features laboratories
where students can learn the science and
technology used in bio-related research
and manufacturing. It will be another link
in the biotechnology chain from Santa Ee
High School to the recently opened Santa
Fe College Charles R. and Nancy V. Perry
Center for Emerging Technologies and
Progress Corporate Park.
"I am delighted that we are in a
community where all of this biotechnology
is happening," he said. "My dream is that
-young people will never have to leave this
community in order to have high-paying,
significant and rewarding jobs."
Jett said it is the principal's love for
science and his dedication to the school
and the community that made him the
perfect candidate for the dedication.
"We were really excited for him," Jett
said. "He is Mr. Science, and the reason we
have such a great building here is because
he was so proactive."'

Do dementia cases signal the demise of football?


In a recent article in The New Yorker,
Malcolm Gladwell makes a case for why vicious
hits and the alarming rates of dementia cases
among former football players could mean the
demise of football.
Gladwell argues that football ."
is vicious and destructive to its
players, and it's hard to argue
with him.


However, I'm still watching.
Many sports have withered

An ideal scenario would be for
technology to fix the problem; e.g.,
safer helmets, smarter medicine.
Gladwell sees NASCAR as a
potential template for solving the
problem. There have been zero
deaths since Dale Earnhardt Sr.
and two other drivers died in 2001.
This is in large part to new safety
regulations. But Gladwell and others
are skeptical that improving helmets
will be enough to make football safe.

was 19 times the national average."

But watching LeBron James rattle the rim with a
forceful dunk just isn't as satisfying as watching
Gators' safety Major Wright crush an Oklahoma

All the new evidence about football's unseen
dangers has given me pause, but I'm not ready
to turn off the TV just yet.
For now, football is still king, and I'm still

Single-family new sales
for the year are down 26
percent, but were up 14
percent in August, and 7
percent in September.
As many rush to beat the
deadline, the U.S. Senate
is planning to extend and
expand the tax credit.
The proposed legislation
is part of a bill to extend
jobless benefits. The bill
will extend the tax credit to
the end of April 2010 and
include a $6,500 tax credit
for buyers who already own
a house. The cap on salary
to qualify, which was set at
$75,000 for an individual
and $150,000 for a couple,
will be increased to
$125,000 for an individual
and $225,000 for a couple.
Al Muller, president of
Metro Market Trends Inc.,
said sales will definitely
drop off if the tax credit is
not extended.
However, he said there
is also the potential that
the tax credit will merely
pull sales forward. Also,
some people who qualify


Tax credit may be
expanded to current
homeowners
for the credit don't need
it and would have bought
anyway, making the tax
credit merely a windfall for
them.
One report examines
this angle and suggests
that the actual cost of the
tax credit is $40,000 per
person.
Muller said despite the
discrepancies in the federal
plan, the tax credit is
unlikely to create a bubble
since it is only an $8,000
credit and is limited to
certain people who qualify.
Despite the positive
signs from sales increases,
house prices continue to
sink.
Sebree said the Senate
will likely pass the bill by
the end of the week and
then it will go to the U.S.
House of Representatives.
The last tax credit
came out of the Senate at
$15,000, and the House cut
it to $8,000.

A message from the desk of


Sheriff Sadie Darnell

Domestic violence


According to the Surgeon
General, domestic violence -
is the number one cause of
injury to American women.
The Florida Department
of Law Enforcement reported
an 8.9 percent increase in
domestic violence-related
homicides and a 100 percent
increase in domestic'violence-
related manslaughter for
January 2009 over the rates for
the same period in 2008.
Domestic violence kills


over 3,000 women annually,
results in 30,000 emergency
room visits, and another
40,000 doctor visits. This
costs taxpayers approximately
$5 to $10 billion dollars per
year in medical, police, and
court services, shelter and
foster care expenses as well as
sick leave and absenteeism.
Yet many victims do not
even realize they are victims.
If you can answer yes to any
of these questions, you are a


victim:
*Are you afraid to disagree
with or say "no" to your
partner?
*Do you apologize for his
behavior?
*Have you ever been hit,
kicked, or pushed by him; or
forced to have sex?
*Is your partner jealous .of
time you spend with friends
or family?
*Are you forced to justify
what you do, where you go


or iho you see?
If so, please realize you
are in a dangerous situation
and develop an action plan
for your safety and that of
your children. Talk to friends,
family or law enforcement.
You are not alone. The abuse
is not your fault. You deserve
to be safe and there are
resources to help you. For help
or assistance, call the Peaceful
Paths Crisis Line at 352-377-
8255 or 1-800-SAFE (7233).

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 05, 2009



This is the Way, walk ye in it


In the Epistle of
Galatians 5:16 f.f., we're
told about the Christian
rule of life, which is to
walk in the Spirit. As an
example, Saint Paul tells
us about the Galatians
who had fallen from grace
because they were trying
to attain perfection through
the flesh and relying on
their own strength. He
points out that there is a
constant conflict going on,
a struggle between the flesh
and the Spirit. The flesh,
or the depraved nature of
man, is the desire or lust
for sinful gratification.
The way to prevent this
sinful gratification from
being fulfilled is to follow
the leading of the Holy
Spirit. Christians are given
guidance by the Holy Spirit
in connection with the
Living Word of God, Jesus
Christ.
As our internal Guide,
the Spirit casts the light
needed to see the moral


fiber of our desires and
actions, all of the light we
need on the path we're
supposed to
walk. / When
we're about to
stray from the '} S
straight path,
it's then that
we hear his H
voice telling .-
us, "This is the I K
.way, walk ye in :
it."
Christians THE VEN
sometimes LEA!
follow their All Saints
own ideas on Church, C
how they're A paris
to act, missing Christian
the personal Chl
aspect of the
leading of the Holy Spirit.
The indwelling of the Spirit
renews our human nature,
and kindles holy desires
within us.
The lust excited within
the flesh is against the
desire excited by the Spirit;
also, the desire excited


I.
SI
s
ia
;h
E
ur


by the Spirit is against
the lust excited within the
flesh. That's the conflict
of desires that
were found in
the Galatian
c hurc h .
Because God
has granted us
freewill, we
have to decide
whether the
Spirit or the
flesh will
JOHN E. control our
URE hearts.
Anglican Teachers
ainesville. from Judea
Sof the had led the
episcopal Galatian
rch, Christians
back to the
Laws of the Pharisee's. In
verse 18, Saint Paul says,
"But if ye be led by the
Spirit, ye are not inder the
Law. He sets them straight
about the relationship
between Christians of the
new covenant, which was
given to us through the


passion, death, resurrection
and ascension of Jesus
Christ, and the Jews of the
old covenant. He tells the
Galatians that if they would
receive again the. Gospel
of the Grace of God and
let the Spirit work in their
lives and renounce the Law
again, they wouldn't be
held in bondage. That's
infinitely better than trying
to control our lives by
sticking to the letter of
the Law like the Pharisees
insisted was necessary.
Saint Paul also sets
out the signs of the flesh
and the Spirit. Here, it's
interesting to note that our
vocabulary has more words
to describe the forms of sin
than words that describe
forms of holiness. "Now
the works of the flesh are
manifest, which are these."
(Galatians 5:19) The'
apostle describes the works
of the flesh as manifest,
which means that they are


easy to distinguish and are
obvious. For the works of
the flesh Paul lists 17 traits
and he could've easily
added more, but he only
listed the ones that the
Galatians needed to take
particular notice.
After listing the sins,
Saint Paul gives them a
warning, which he had
given them before and is
having to tell them again.
This gives us some insight
into the social environment
where this church is located
and its being compared to
Sodom and Gomorrah. The.
apostle is telling them that
those, who commit these
sins will most definitely
be punished-the nature
of the sins make them unfit
for the kingdom of God.
They are rebels against
God and their punishment
will be exclusion from the
inheritance that they would
have had.
Now I would like to


explain a little more about
the fruit of the Spirit. "But
the fruit of the Spirit' is
love...: against such there
is no law." The fruit of the
Spirit is consistent. And
as the grace of one grows,
it doesn't take away from
another-it adds to the
richness and beauty of the
whole.
Love tops. the list and'
it carries with it all of the
fruits of the Spirit. We're
told that the love'of God is
given to us, in our hearts,
through the Holy Ghost.
So, Saint Paul connects the
Spirit with love first., If the
fruits of the Spirit are in
us, then the Law can never
find fault with us-we will
be blessed. We shall be
blessed by enjoying the
smile of God.

Plan to attend the "Fall
Community Garage Sale" at.


Toby LePage, an eleven-year-old frontier boy,
has a dream come true when he is given a ride on the
Arabia, a steamboat headed up the Missouri River.
Toby was' sure he was on an adventure that he would
remember for the rest his life.
However, the adventure he had was not the kind
he expected as he and his father, along with all the
passengers and crew on the Arabia, face a great tragedy
on the Mighty Missouri. And, as a result of his adventure,
Toby comes to understand that, indeed, The River Speaks.

Freedom and Operation
Iraqi Freedom-the current
conflicts in Afghanistan
and Iraq will be recognized.
Through the generosity
of citizens throughout
north central Florida, six
Alachua County residents
who have been killed in
those engagements will
be recognized with an
expansion of the Memorial.
The addition will feature
both operations and will
duplicate the design
and scale of the original
Memorial.
In addition, two area
veterans of the 1944
D-Day invasion will
receive Legion of Honor
awards from the French
government for their valor
in helping to liberate
France from totalitarian
control. Jonathan Pruden,'
a wounded veteran of


Operation Enduring
Freedom, will deliver the
keynote address.
The Lincoln Middle
School Band will.perform
both before and after the
ceremonies. A flyover
by World War II vintage
aircraft, a wreath laying
ceremony and other events
will be included in the
ceremonies.
During the formal
ceremonies the Alachua
County Veterans Memorial
Committee will also
announce the future
dedication of a plaque
to recognize Alachua
County's teachers who
have served in our nation's
military forces. The plaque
will be.installed at the
Kirby Smith Building-the
headquarters oftheAlachua
County school district-on
a date that will be set later.


Handicapped guests
may use the courtesy valet
parking service provided by
the University of Florida's
Air Force ROTC before and
after the celebration. Other
guests may park at the
VFW post on Waldo Road
and ride in a shuttle bus to
Kanapaha Park. Parking
will also be available at
Wiles Elementary School
and Kanapaha Middle
School. After parking at
these facilities, visitors may
use a shuttle bus to reach
the Memorial site. Please
remember that seating is
limited at the park. In past
years many guests have
brought a chair or some
other sit-upon to the park.
For more information,
contact Jim Lynch at 352-
