City

manager

still

without

contract
By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE .
More than three weeks
ago, Hawthorne selected
Edward F. Smyth Jr. to
be the town's new city
manager, but the city still
hasn't hammered out the
details in his contract.
This is the latest in a
series of delays in the city
manager selection process
that has 'now spanned
several months.
The frustration was
voiced by citizens and
commissioners alike as
well as the city manager,
who has worked the last
two weeks on a temporary
salary.
"I've been sitting.here
peacefully now for the
last two weeks listening to
you talk about my contract
and nobody's asked me
whether I'd take anything
or not," Smyth said.
He. laid out the
commissions choices:
"Do you want to sit
with the agreement we
agreed on Oct. 26? Would
you like to invite me to go
back to negotiations? Or
do you want to start your
process again? Those are
your choices tonight."
Twenty-five Hawthorne
citizens came to Tuesday's
workshop continuing

Bed tax increase may

fund Newberry's $7

million ballpark
County commission to vote Dec. 8


By GABRIELA IZARRA
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY Sports tourism
is the number one purpose of travel
to Alachua County, and the City of
Newberry hopes to become "the
top amateur sports destination in
Florida."
Now that the Easton-Newberry
Sports Complex is open,
commissioners are shifting their
focus to the next sports-related
project: a $7 million baseball park
with 16 stadiums to be used for
youth baseball tournaments.
"This is a thing that's going
to bring tourism and commerce
to Newberry," said Newberry
Commissioner Bill Conrad at a

commission meeting Monday.
A 2 percent increase in the
county's bed tax would generate
about $1.3 million per year,
providing the funds needed over
time to pay off the loan necessary
to build the baseball complex.
In order for the park to be
a reality, the Alachua County
Commission has to vote in favor of
the bed tax increase, a decision that
will be made on Dec. 8.
The bed tax wouldn't be paid
by Alachua County citizens, but
by tourists staying at local hotels
and motels. The increase in the
bed tax will have little impact on

LED lights seen as better investment -'.
For the first time, Alachua's main street i
will be decked out in energy saving rope .
lights using bulbs commonly referred to '-^
as "L.E.D."
Alachua's Volunteer City Decorator Di-
ana Felver pushed the investment in the
new LED lighting and recently received
support from the Downtown Redevelop-
ment Trust Board which approved funding P
for the initiative. The new rope lights were
installed on the lights polls in three of five
blocks of the primary shopping district on
Main Street.
Felver said although the LED rope
lights require a higher initial investment,
they are expected to pay for themselves
in energy savings and durability. Tra-
ditional rope lights used on Main Street
have required replacement about every
six months while Felver believes the new
LED lights will last several years.
At right: Members pf the City of Alach-
ua Streets and Roads Department install
and test one of the new LED rope lights. ..

City of God


By KEES BOER
Entertainment Writer
"City of God" is the true
story of gangs in a slum, or
"Favela," in Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil. The film tells about
the horrors of a slum on
the west side of Rio and
how three characters live
in the midst of turmoil and
danger.
As .a young boy,
Rocket wanted to become
a newspaper photographer.
His life is surrounded


by gangs, drugs and
immorality, making it
difficult for him to reach
'his dream. He sees what
ends up happening to his
brother when he gets pulled
into the gang life a road to
nowhere and an early death.
Rocket ends up becoming
successful because he is
able to photograph much
of the gang wars and the
gangs.
Another young boy, Li'l
Dice, gets involved with a

City of God.
The film demonstrates
the desperate situations that
exists in slums in South
America. I was in a similar
slum just a few months ago
in Medellin, Colombia.
Gangs were all over and
it was a big danger for me
to be there as a "gringo." I
saw many of the children
that grew up there, right in
the midst of that. A week
later, 19 people were killed
at the very spot where I had
been.
This film is the total
opposite of a "feel good
movie." It's horrific,
especially considering that
this is reality to so many
children. One horrific scene


is where two six-year-
old boys were abused by
a gang, with one shot to
death and the other one shot
in the foot.
The film is
appropriately rated "R."
I would not suggest this
film as entertainment or
definitely not for family
viewing. It is almost more
like a documentary.
I want to dedicate this
article to Juan Santiago,
a Compassion child in
Medellin, Colombia,
who has to face these
circumstances on a daily
basis. He wrote me in letter
that he had not gotten into
any fights this year.

"They can go uphill and get a little bit
of a workout with some scenery."
While there is no charge to
participate, money donations will be
accepted and will go to the Bill Irby

Church, which will be on the route.
After, the walk, people are

screeners at the Lions' clubhouse.
Martin, who found out he is borderline

Fire services on the table again

County submits proposal to High Springs


By TRACEY MCMANUS
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -
No sooner than two newly
elected High Springs
Commissioners adjust
to their seats on the dais
Thursday, they will have to
decide the fate of an issue
that has followed the city
for years.
On Nov.3, Alachua
County Commissioners
gave High Springs City
Attorney Thomas Depeter
their second offer this year
for 'how much to pay the


city for fire-rescue services
to surrounding Alachua
County areas. On Thursday,
commissioners will decide
whether to accept or
deny the $123,000 lump
sum with an additional
$335 each time the city is
dispatched as a primary
responder to the city of
Alachua.
This same proposal,
which is $10,000 less than
last year's agreement, came
before the commission in
September, when the fiscal
year 2008-2009 contract
was set to expire. With


High Springs city officials
unhappy with the payment
reduction, but reluctant to
refuse it' all together, the
previous year's proposal
between the city and the
county was extended for 30
days on Sept.30 and again
on Oct.31 to buy time for
negotiations.
Depeter said the
decision lies in the hands
of the commission, but if
discussion is still needed,
it can be done at a joiit
meeting with the county
Nov. 17, which is set to
discuss the" future of 'a


controversial cat sanctuary
near High Springs.
"The county didn't
agree with the lump sum
amount [of $133,000] but
did agree on the principle to
pay for the trips to the city
of Alachua, so there was
a compromise," Depeter
said. "So now the question
is if the commission will
compromise on the lump
sum figure since the county
compromised on the trip
figure."

Fort Hood shoot



solemn Veterans


As Veterans Day comes and goes, we
as a nation are left to mourn yet another
tragic mass shooting on American soil.
This year marks the 90th observance
of the day set aside each year to honor
our servicemen and women. Veterans
Day has been exceptionally meaningful
the past few years as our
nation faced conflict in
the Middle East, but this
month's memorial seems
all the more necessary
considering the attack
that occurred at a Texas
military base just days
ago. The significance and
timing of the murders by
suspected gunman Nidal Jimmy
Malik Hasan leave behind
both a festering wound and a national
rallying point.
Army Maj. Hasan allegedly opened
fire at Fort Hood Army Base on Nov.
5, killing 13 and injuring 30 more. The
motive for the attack is still unknown as
Hasan recovers from gunshot wounds in
a San Antonio hospital, but speculation
is rampant concerning warning signs
the army may have missed. Hasan
reportedly presented a lecture at the
base that made his classmates question


his loyalty. He also wa

views.
Thefact is, it's easy to second-guess.
'Pundits argued that police and school
officials missed red flags raised prior
to the infamous Columbine shootings.
The same claims were
made after the Virginia
Tech massacre less than
three years ago. As the
saying goes, hindsight is
always 20-20. The one
jy~ commonality the assailants
most likely shared is
psychiatric instability,
including Hasan. It is easy
clarity to blame a whole group
of people who may share
similar beliefs as one manic killer, but
instead we should blame no one but the
coward himself.
What makes the massacre at Fort
Hood even more of a lightning rod are
the hot-button issues that surround the
incident. Religion, terrorism and an
unpopular war are at the center of debate
in America, and this latest shooting
appears to share these elements. Sadly,
opinion and speculation may very well


true.
This country was founded on the
principles of tolerance, and when
we. stray from this ideology, we are
allowing the antagonists a victory:
America in regression.
What better way to counteract this
pathetic act of defiance than to reach
across the boundaries that the shooter
could never breach? Knowledge and
understanding are our best prevention
methods. Let not the deficient mental
state of one individual influence our
opinion about a race, ethnicity or
religious viewpoint.
We may never discover the truth
about what caused the shootings. But
whatever the reason, a nation is left
picking up the pieces after yet another
act of senseless killing. And just like
the days and months following the
attacks of 9/11, we as citizens will once
again find strength and comfort in the
remembrance and celebration of the
lives of the victims* *

ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2009 A7


Continued fro Ideas for growth and spending set new



and old commissioners apart


be different, but the financial conservatism
of wanting to cut back and spend less is
really our common bond," May said. "Our
common bond is spending less money."
In terms of having a commission
changing to be more uniform in ideals,
University of Florida associate professor
of political science Dr. Daniel Smith said
the shift can come from voters acting on
unhappiness with current national politics
and lashing out at the local level. He said
it can also go both ways on the level of
representation the community gets from
the commission.
"In terms of not having a full
representation of viewpoints is potentially
detrimental to a city," Smith said. "I'd also
say not all fiscal conservatives are alike in
the. way they want to proceed."
Smith said that disparity in the
methods used to save money may play
out in the new commission, but it is also
an aspect that sets the new leadership apart


* from the old commission.
Dean Davis vocalized his urge to save
money for taxpayers when he said High
Springs ad valorem taxes could be lowered
since the city has doubled what it has it its
reserve funds in the last five years.
But Mayor Jim Gabriel, who will step
down from office Thursday, has disagreed
and said while he is a fiscal conservative,
lowering taxes by counting on reserves is
no answer.
"There's a difference in being fiscally
conservative and foolish,"-Gabriel said.
"Cash reserves are a savings account. Once
you spend it, it's gone. You don't fund a
recurring expense with cash reserves,
because reserves area one-shot deal."
Another issue setting the new
commission apart from the old is the idea
for how large local government should be.
Davis said the city manger-run government
is designed for cities with a population
of 12,000 residents and above, and cross


training could be done for employees to do
more than one job.
May noted the various committees
appointed by the commission also add to
that "big government" role and said the
power should be put more in the hands of
citizens and the commission.
"A lot of things have been delegated
to staff and it's not' that I doubt them, but
the decisions need to be made more by the
people that are held accountable," May
said. "If we put a task force together to
deal with it or put together an advisory
board, it makes -things more bloated. It
makes government more bloated if you put
together a board."
And that logic is what Gabriel
also said sets both commissions apart.
Gabriel said he was for putting power in
committees in order to reduce the role,of
government, which is what May and Davis
have proposed to do by cutting committees.
"When we hired a garbage collector


did that expand government?" Gabriel
asked. "No, it improved garbage pick up,
it increased service. This commission is
actually going to expand their role, and
that's politicizing things more, and I think
that's a bad thing."
Eitherway, Commissioner LarryTravis
has said experience is the major factor that
will set his new colleagues apart from 'the
old commission. While incumbents Byran
Williams and Gabriel served six and nine
years on the commission respectively, the
decisions made by the new commission
will still be for the betterment of the
community, he said.
"We'll learn to be a commission
together and learn to put personal feelings
aside and look at the big picture," Travis
said. "We'll be able to move the city
forward."

Terry was honored
this Veteran's Day, along
with more than 23 million
military veterans living in
the country.
It takes a certain
type of person to live in
the confined spaces of a
submarine, he said.
"You live in your own
coffin when you're on a
submarine," he said. "For
some reason, I enjoyed it."
While out at sea,
Terry, did engineering
maintenance jobs, and even
received a bachelor's degree
in Marine engineering
from the University of
Wisconsin, Madison. The
USS Sea Cat sank quite a
bit of Japanese cargo ships,
he recalls.
These days, Terry
tells youngsters that "the
service" is not, a bad 'vay

express concerns about
danger,'he informs them
that there are more people
killed in cars every day.
"I believe in my'

Newberry in 1988, and
Terry has been there ever
since.
"I'll be here until I go

said.
His wife and son passed
away of colon cancer, but
his three grandchildren still
live in the area.
Wright Terry has. seen
the terrors of war, and has
suffered loss, but he is
happy with his life, he says.
He is only one of the
veterans, out of more than
one million, living in the
state of Florida.
As troops continue to
fight overseas, in Iraq and
Afghanistan, we honor
those who have returned
from service as well as
those who did not. The

be
According to police reports,
Grapski went to APD to get
information about a closed case,
and when Jemigan told him he had
no further information, Grapski
was asked to leave. However,
Grapski reportedly refused, and
Jemigan locked him out of the
building, the reports state.
Grapski allegedly banged on
the glass doors, and police arrested
him. Grapski kicked Jernigan in the
leg, head-butted another officer in
the chin and kicked a third officer
in the hand, police said.
Aside from witness testimony,
jurors are expected to see a video
taken inside the APD lobby
during the incident, as well as an
audio recording which has been
synchronized with the video.
As Assistant State Attorney
Geoffrey Fleck made opening
statements about the case, Grapski
sat at the defense table, flanked on
the right by his defense attorney
StepheS Bernstein and on the left
by Joseh Little. a.-lp professor at
the University of Florida.
After Fleck addressed the jury,
Bernstein had his shot at outlining
what he hoped to prove over the


ideo and audio from incident likely to

e seen and heard in court Thursday


course of the trial. But Bernstein
was off to a rocky start as Fleck
objected to the first several words
of his opening statements. Judge
James Nilon agreed with Fleck that
those statements, which alluded
to rights under the United States
Constitution, were not appropriate
for the opening stage of the trial.
Witnesses were peppered with
questions for much of the trial
on Tuesday. Jurors heard from a
records clerk, a communications
supervisor, police officers, a
dispatcher, former Police Chief
Robert Jernigan and a citizen
who was in the lobby when the
incident occurred. Testimony
from witnesses seemed to largely
be in agreement on some basic
circumstances surrounding the
incident.
Although it had originally
been reported that Grapski went
to APD seeking information about
a case in which he was involved,
it seems Grapjki also sought' to
ile a "criminal" complaint against
Jernigan. A communications
supervisor testified that Jemigan
instructed her to tell Grapski to go
to the Office of the State Attorney


to file such a complaint.
Bernstein raised questions
about why Grapski was not simply
provided a complaint packet.
Fleck, however, drew a distinction
between a typical complaint about
an officer and the alleged criminal
complaint Grapski sought to file.
Through his questions, Fleck
seemed to point out that the Office
of the State Attorney was the
appropriate venue in which to file
criminal complaints against a Chief
of Police.
There were dramatic moments
during the trial on Tuesday. At one
point, the judge ordered jurors out
of the courtroom after Bernstein
began tellingjurorswhatconstituted
trespassing and suggesting that
Jernigan didn't have the authority
to trespass Grapski from APD in
the first place, let alone arrest him
for not leaving.
A moment just as dramatic
came minutes later as Joseph
Little attempted to make .ani
Argument on the trespassiiig matter,
pushing Nilon to question the
law professor's role in Grapski's
. defense.
Nilon said the court had


"concerns" and asked why Grapski
had a specially appointed public
defender if Little was going to
represent him. Nilon expressed'his
concern that taxpayers are footing
the bill for Grapski's defense when
he apparently has Little serving as
defense counsel as well.
Nilon ultimately squelched
Bernstein on the trespass matter
saying Jernigan did have a right to
issue a trespass warning to Grapski..
As the trial resumes Thursday,
it is expected that video footage
taken by a security camera at APD
will finally be seen in court. It is an
audio recording taken by Grapski
himself which will be synchronized
with that video and used against
him. Jemigan picked up the
handheld audio recorder after it
apparently fell from Grapski's
hands during the arrest.
The trial is likely to conclude
Thursday afternoon or Friday and
jurors will likely reach a verdict by

God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever


A vast number of people
in American society are
suffering from anxiety,
especially since we're
currently in a stressful
economic situation. There is
a very real fear that what we
have may be lost or stolen;
our homes, our possessions,
our health, or even our life.
In American society, there
Share many ways to cope with
this, but Americans are still
overcome with worry, fear,
and anxiety. This plague
affects young and old, rich
and poor. We hear about
people suffering, from mid-
life crisis, increases in
domestic violence and a rise
of teen suicide. What's the
solution to these problems?
Even the medical
community is divided over
how to address this problem.
Some want to prescribe
expensive medicines to
overcome it, while others
suggest rest and relaxation.
But, the numbers keep
rising-the problem isn't as
simple as rest and a pill to
relieve the pain.
We could always look to
Hollywood for a solution.
They think more pleasure
and excitement will relieve
anxiety. Or maybe getting
a divorce and finding a
new mate would solve the
problem. How about'having
a huge entertainment center
in your home; or maybe a
new car to lift the spirits or
a new wardrobe to kick the
blues? If those don't work,
there's drugs and alcohol.
But even these extremes fall
short.
In Ecclesiastes, chapter
2, the speaker describes all
of the things that he used
to find something to fill
the void, or overcome the
anxiety. "And whatsoever
mine eyes desired. I kept
not from. them, I withheld
not my heart from any joy;
for my heart rejoiced in all
my labour: and this was my


portion of all my labour religion of the day. He spoke
Then I looked on all the to the teachers, he attended
works that my hands had the festivals, he participated


wrought, and
on the labour
that I had
laboured to do:
and, behold, all
[was] vanity
and vexation
of spirit, and
[there was] no
profit under the
sun." And all
that he did was
all to no avail.
I 5s
organized

answer? There

reasons why

people go to church, but
many attend for the wrong
reasons. So, is religion
enough to end the anxiety
problem? The answer is
definitely not. Religion
is a tool that takes on
the character of the one
involved-religion isn't
the answer, but a tool
nonetheless. When Jesus
came as a child, born of the
Virgin Mary, he grew up and
submitted to the organized

holy days, and
Syet the church
around him
was filled with
corrupt Priests.
The religious
institution
had gotten off
track, but the
JOHN E. Son of God
URE didn't leave the
Anglican institution and
ainesville. seek peace with
of the God in a new
Episcopal religion. The
rch ways of God
are established
and those who seek God
rather than the satisfaction
of a religious experience
will find peace.
This is exactly what Jesus
.was teaching in Matthew
chapter 6. Anxiety is the
symptom of a heart built
on the wrong foundation.
The Gentiles look for a
remedy to this illness with
a variety of cures, but there
is only one cure. There may
be a number of temporary

remedies, but like a band-
aid put on a gaping wound,
they aren't the right one.
The answer is found
by establishing Christ as
the ruler of your heart,
which is what it means
to seek His kingdom and
his righteousness. His
kingdom isn't meant to be
a future influence-we're
to seek His kingdom, His
rule in our heart, now.
His righteousness isn't
something you look for


in heaven, because it's
the very air you breathe
there. It's now that we
must seek to establish the
rule of heaven in our hearts
and live -accordingly. The
answer to anxiety is found
in the person of Jesus
Christ-the maturing of
that relationship and the
health of maintaining that
relationship is accomplished
through the church, where
religion is necessary, but
the order has to be correct.


First, know Christ in your
heart, then be in His house,
be fed by his shepherds, be
guided by his ministers, and
let the rule of the heavenly
kingdom be established
in your heart as you are
established in Christ, a
member of his Church.
We should have no greater
desire on earth than to know
Christ and no greater desire
:in Heaven than to be with
Him.

How to Buy a Quality Used Car or

Truck Under $200 a Month Without

a Penny Out of Your Pocket


Gainesville, FL -
Now more than eveI;
great quality and great value
.are what's on everyone's
mind. How can you get the
most car for the least
money? Wade Raulerson
Honda has the answer.
"We've had car after car
and truck after truck
returned to us. People
simply can't make the
payments any more and just
bring the vehicle back.
We've got so many of them,
our only option is to let new
customers take over loans
on the vehicles and start
making payments," said
Jason Dillon, used car sales
manager.
Wade Raulerson Hond-
has row after row of qi
pre-owned vehicles
able for this program. '1 neir
service department, which is
one of the top rated service
departments in the state, has
inspected, reconditioned
and certified vehicles.
"We just need to move
these vehicles for the banks.
Right now, you can get a
used car or truck, many less
than a year or two old, for
less than two hundred
dollars a month without a
penny out of your pocket.
This is a program I haven't
seen in twenty years in the
business," added Dillon.
Late model vehicles,
which have already had
thousands of dollars in
payments made against
them are being brought
back at a staggering rate.
Neither the bank nor
dealership wants these
vehicles since they've
already been retailed. The


banks and the dealership
are looking for good
customers with good
credit or bad who are
willing to take payments on
these vehicles.
"There's not a vehicle on
our lot that can't be bought
for under two hundred
dollars per month and
these aren't clunkers. Look

"Right now, you
can get a used car
or truck, many less
than a year or two
old, for less than
two hundred dollars
a month without a
penny out of your
pocket."
-Jloon Dillon,
Used Car Sales Manager
Wade Raulerson Honda


at this example a 2004
Toyota Tacoma, Stk#
FH8170A, with $0 down is
just $197 per month for 72
months at 5.9% APR with
approved credit plus tax,
tag and title. And I've got
fifty other cars and trucks
that are similar values,"
added Dillon.
Dealerships and banks
aren't in the business of
taking back vehicles when
customers can't make
payments. They'd rather
get them off their books
immediately and will do


whatever is necessary to
do so.
Wade Raulerson Honda
has taken all of the vehicles
and put them in a special
section on their lot. Any
interested consumers who'd
like to view the inventory
should call the dealership to
make an appointment.
"All we're asking is to
make an appointment.
We've got these vehicles
sectioned off and they're
ready to be driven, inspect-
ed and taken home today.
We're clearly posting prices
and payments. If you see a
vehicle you like, but aren't
happy about the take over
price simply make an
offers I'm sure you hear
stories every day of banks
and businesses taking
pennies on the dollar for
surplus products. I don't see
why any offer will be
refused," finished Dillon.
Wade Raulerson Honda
has been Gainesville's top
dealership for many years.
Respected by Honda and
the community, the dealer-
ship has built its business on
fantastic products, great
customer service and prices
that you -can feel good
about.
Interested consumers
should call the dealership at
1-877-639-8148. This event
is going on through 8:00pm
Monday.
"After that, we've got to
ship inventory off this lot.
We can't let it sit here forev-
er for the banks or lenders.
Make an offer now, or you
may miss an opportunity to
get a great car under $200
per month," added Dillon.


Interested consumers should contact the
dealer directly at 1-877-639-8148

Education

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.

BEXA R COUNTY --'Ibm W., a carpenter who specializes in building

Special to
Alachua County Today
HIGH SPRINGS
- The High Springs
Gateway signs are now
beautifully landscaped
Hanks to the generosity
of Mike Ginaikas, owner
of Landscapes Unlimited
of Alachua. Mike and
his family are long-time
residents of High Springs,
and are happy to contribute
to the community. 'All
plants are native and once
established will require less


care than ornamentals.
The project has been an
undertaking of the Design
Team of the High Springs
Main Street Program.
Members of the Design
Team will be watering
them daily for the first
month to ensure a healthy
beginning. If you are
interested in helping water
the plants, contact Ashley
at the Main Street office at
386-454-2889.
