tell a story using

everything but words.

Between the notes

of piccolos, clarinets

and saxophones, the

bellowing of drums

and xylophones, and

the drama of,


trumpets, mellophones and tubas, 52 Santa
Fe High School Students narrated a young
girl's journey from her place in the clouds
during a storm to her arrival on cloud nine.
It was a storyline thought up and
performed by the school's marching band
Saturday at the 2009 Florida Marching
Band Championships in St. Petersburg,
where as storytellers and musicians the
Raider Regiment Marching Band took

"This win really enables the students

putting in four months of hard work, and
it's a great feeling the students will take
with them the rest of their lives," said the
band's director of two years, Nate Bisco.

Companies trying to
determine the authenticity
of the food they purchase
need look no further than
the latest addition to the
Sid Martin Biotechnology
Incubator at Progress
Corporate Park.
Applied Food
Technologies (AFT), a
molecular diagnostics
company, recently took
over a space at the incubator
in Alachua. AFT specializes
in determining the animal


species used in certain
food production through
its development of a DNA
technology platform.
"One of the biggest
things that has taken off
in the last four years is
the. mislabeling of fish in
commerce for economic
gain," said company CEO
LeeAnn Applewhite. "Is
that really grouper or is
that really snapper you are
paying those prices for?

By GABRIELAIZARRA
Today Reporter
ARCHER It has
been six weeks since
former Newberry Mayor
John Glanzer assumed
the city manager position
in Archer, and the job has
been keeping him busy; he
said.
"It's been very
exciting," said Glanzer.
"Every day a different
challenge a different set
of things that need to be
dealt with."
The city is working on
its share of new projects,
the bigger ones being the


community auditorium
project and the recreation
program.
Applications have
been filed for a $100,000
grant from the Department
ofAgriculture, as well as a
$25,000 Historic Society
grant for the community
auditorium project.
The old auditorium
is in its second phase
of renOvations, needing
only $220,000 to get the
project done.
"We really want to get
it finished up this year,"
Glanzer said.
The city is also


working on organizing its
recreation program and
trying to find a permanent

Library makes reading a family affair


A six-week program
aimed at bringing parents
and children together
through humanitarian
themed literature ended
Nov. 17 with 15 families
receiving recognition from
Alachua Mayor Bonnie
Burgess.
The Alachua Branch
Library hosted the Prime
Time Reading Program,
a program through The
Florida Humanities
Council, one night per
week from October through
November. The statewide
program brought parents
and children ages 6 to 11
to libraries to hear stories
like Where the Wild Things
Are and The Empty Pot
read aloud. The families


could then discuss the
themes of faimess, greed,
determination and. hope
amongst themselves and
relate the virtues to their
own lives, said Alachua
Branch Library Manager
Caryl McKellar.
Along with The Florida
Humanities Council, the
program was funded
by the Maren Family
Foundation and received
food donations from local
restaurants for snacks.
Trained discussion leaders
read the stories aloud and
led conversations among
the families afterwards.
At right, the Cooper
family receives their
certificate of completion
from Mayor Burgess.

Adoptathon 2009


Special to
Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE Come join in the
biggest adoption event of the year. The
partners of the Maddie's Pet Rescue Project
of Alachua County will be behind Macy's
at the Oaks Mall on Saturday, Dec. 5 from
10 a.m. 5 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 6 from
11 a.m. 4 p.m.
Hundreds of animals will be available
for adoption, from puppies to kittens, cats
to dogs, in all shapes and sizes. Whether
you are looking to begin your canine or
feline family, or expand the one you have
now, you will be able to find the perfect
match.
The Maddie's Pet Rescue Project
of Alachua County is composed of five
partners: Alachua County Humane Society
(Lead Agency), Puppy Hill Farms, Haile's
Angels Pet Rescue, and Helping Hands
Animal Rescue. Our coalition works with
Alachua County Animal Services to re-
home and rehabilitate thousands of animals
each year. Every adoption is another life
saved in our community.


Last year, more than 200 animals
found homes during this event, and with
your help, this year can be even bigger.
Help prevent the unnecessary euthanasia
of healthy animals. The goal of Maddie's
Project is to end the euthanasia of healthy
and treatable animals in Alachua County
for good.
Information about Maddie's Fund
can be found at www.maddiesfund.org.
The Maddie's Foundation is a family
foundation funded by PeopleSoft Founder
Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, to help
establish a no kill nation. The first step is
to help develop programs that guarantee
loving homes for shelter dogs and cats
throughout the country. The next step will
be to save the sick pets in animal shelters
nationwide. Maddie's fund is named after
the family's beloved Schnauzer that passed
away in 1997.

Eppenstein, Executive Director, or Derek

A few years ago, I got
to know Gary and Joan
Johnson, who together
with Gary's brother,
Dave, produced the award
winning shows DOC
and Sue Thomas FBEye.
Both of these shows were
immensely successful in
numerous countries. They
originally aired on the PAX
network in the USAand Sue
Thomas FBEye aired on
CTV, the biggest network
in Canada. Currently, both
shows are on the Gospel
Music Channel where they
are among the highest rated
shows on that network in
the 18-49 age group, which
is the most desired age


group among advertisers.
"Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye,"
is a groundbreaking,
original drama, inspired
by the true story of
Sue Thomas, a woman
profoundly deaf from the
age of 18 months, who is
about to start her first real
job which happens to
be with the F.B.I. Using
her unique lip reading
ability, Sue becomes the
secret weapon of the
bureau's elite surveillance
team, making new friends
and acquaintances, while
also having to prove herself
to the skeptics who think
she doesn't belong there.

sparks...all of this as Sue
and her "partner in solving
crime" her hearing dog,
Levi pursue cases ranging
from bank robbery to white
collar' crime to terrorism.
Sue and Levi are suddenly
"G-men,"' caught up in
a good deal more action
than they ever bargained
for. But what they lack in
experience, they more than
make up for in spirit and
enthusiasm.
Over the years, there
has been a huge demand for
.these shows to come out on
DVD and the first eleven
episodes of Sue Thomas
FBEye were just released
on DVD.
I spoke with Gary
about the new release of
the DVD. The success of
these first episodes will
determine if the other
. seasons will be released on
DVD. Gary said, "It's been
quite a while that people
have been waiting for them
to come out. We are going
to put out half of season
one, 12 hours, 11 episodes
and hope that those sell
really well.
"We feel that if people
see the first set of DVDs,
they will want to see
the rest. If that effort is
successful, there are even
plans for a new Sue Thomas
movie, but we have to
prove this is a project well
worth investing in."
The very
popular Christmas episode
of Sue Thomas FBEye
"Silent Night" is also
included on the DVD set, so
it makes a great Christmas
gift.
We spoke about the
Demographic for this show.
"We all know people who
say that they hardly ever
watch television anymore,
because they are so tired
of the raunchy stuff, the
networks put out," said
Gary. "This is for those
people. It is just a good
well done family show that
we can all watch together
and we all enjoy. Parent,
grandparents, teenagers,
kids, this is that show."
The DVD set is
available at suethomasdvd.

Mayor seeks additional improvements


The city was initially
going to have a meeting
with FDOT, but the meeting
was canceled.
Randall said at the Nov.
17 commission meeting that
the review and exchange of
letters have left some issues
unresolved. Randall will
be sending another letter
to FDQT with additional
suggestions to increase
safety at the intersection.
One of these questions is
whether the red light time
could be extended.
The review also
concluded that some changes


were not needed. FDOT
deemed it unnecessary to
replace the existing yield
sign in the turning lane with
a stop sign.
The letter states, "Our
review of the available sight
distance and crash data did
not identify a problem."
According to the letter
from FDOT, construction on
the signal lights will begin
as soon as the design plans
are complete.

Ask Your Dentist

Anatomy of
SQ: What is it that actually
causes a toothache?
A: A toothache is one
of life's more unpleasant
.experiences. It can begin
as a dull throb and graduate
to' excruciating pain. Two
things are sure: It's a sign
of a problem and it should
get. prompt professional
attention. What actually
causes the pain of a toothache
is your body's reaction to an
infection. When a cavity
reaches the pulp of the tooth
it can let in the bacteria that
causes, infection. The body
defends itself by increasing
blood flow to the infected
area. But in this case, since
the tooth's pulp and nerve
is encased in enamel, the
pressure of the increased

swelling and pain that are the
trademarks of the toothache.
Pulpitis is the name for the
acute stage of pulp infection.
When the infection
spreads to the periodontal
ligament, the membrane that
holds the tooth in its. socket,
you will have. pain when
the affected tooth comes

Anti-inflammatory drugs like
aspirin or ibuprofen may ease
the pain of a toothache. One
caution, though: never put

dentist and see him as soon
as possible when you have a

How'd that turkey get on your plate?


You'd probably rather not know


This Thanksgiving, I'm going to be that guest.
The really annoying one that inconveniences and
offends the chef because they won't eat the mass-
produced, genetically manipulated, obese turkey that
has spent its life from egg to plate in a dark, cemerit
warehouse.
,I'm really embarrassed about it actually, because I
don't want to come off as a stereotypical tree hugging
type.. Thanksgiving will only mark my 11th day as a
vegetarian and obviously my first turkey day as one,
so I'm hoping to come off more like the
'up with the tumes' type.
To be honest, it's pretty ironic since
vegetarians used to really bother me for
being such picky eaters. I knew some
peFple who refused to eat meat simple
to mnakla f shion statement and couldn't.
give an\ legitimate reasons to back it up,
which actuallI made me want to eat more
-meat, just in spite.
So I was nervous when I warned m
best" friend about m\ new lifestyle since
I'm going to be spending Thanksgivinig
with her and her family, and all she
could give me was the attitude I gave Tracey M
vegetarians I have' kno\ n in the past:
"Seriously, my dad is going to be really
upset you won't taste the turkey he will have cooked
for like eight hours," she said.
Even my sister mocked me when I told her I made it
past one week and wasn't at all missing eating sentient
beings. She figured it's because I'm in my last year in
college and having some sort of minor identity crisis.
But thinking of how many turkeys have been mass
produced and so force fed they can't walk because
their internal organs ha\en'( caught up with the
weight of their bodies, I think I'll make it through this
Thanksgiving.
It has really been a series of things that have
impacted me so much as to turh me vegetarian,
despite the upcoming holiday cuisines. First of all
it's the inhumane conditions and abuse that animals
live in every day at American slaughterhouses.
Countless videos have surfaced of workers stamping
on, squeezing to death and throwing against walls the
chickens they keep in the warehouses void of fresh air
or sunlight. The turkeys ending up on your plates most
likely lived a hellish, industrial life for up to half a


year packed with no breathing room in a shed before
they are thrown by their necks and legs onto shipping
trucks to be killed by a painful and at times ineffective
slaughter method.
Cattle are raised in pastures of cement and metal'
fences and often are often standing for days in feces
up to their knees as they await slaughter. When the
conditions make them so sickly they can't stand up
on their own, persuasive forklifts come along to stab
them to the slaughter line. Apart from the abuse and
overcrowding at slaughterhouses, it's the
poor conditions that create risk for E coli
and infected meat.
Red meat from cows and hormone
filled fillets from chicken are also
responsible for much of the diabetes,
heart disease and obesity in those that et


icManus


A meatless diet is also better for the
environment. which even skeptics can
agree is suffering now from over farming
and animal pollution runoff in waters
and lands Agriculture worldwide is
responsible for 30 percent of greenhouse-
gas emissions, much of that coming from
cattle that breathe methane into the air.
Think of how much meat is produced


every day when you see it everywhere from grocery
store fillets to gas station beef jerky and hot dogs
under heat lamps it's tragic, and I am that convinced.
I thought I would suffer.on Thanksgiving by not
eating turkey, even just for tradition's sake, but I think
I'll be okay with extra green bean casserole. I won't
be missing out on Thanksgiving altogether, just the
turkeys, pigs and cows that forfeited a bearable life
to become a meal. Thanksgiving isn't all about turkey
anyway. Isn't it about being thankful for what you have
and making peace with people you're at odds with...?
The truth is I realized vegetarianism isn't just a
trend or a label, it actually makes total sense, even
though you have. to miss out on American traditions
like Thanksgiving dinner.

'Never a dull moment' in Archer
recreation director position, a staff assistant position
has recently opened up.
Glanzer has also been taking on the responsibilities
of city planner, code enforcement officer, and interim
recreation director.
"I have a lot of different hats on to add to being the
city manager," he said. "There's never a dull moment."
Before becoming Archer's City Manager, Glanzer
served as mayor in Newberry for more than four years,
and had been a commissioner for 17.
Archer is a much smaller city than Newberry,
with a smaller staff and budget, Glanzer revealed.
Compared to Newberry's staff of 50, Archer has about
eight city employees.
One of the main struggles the city faces is providing
services to its residents with such a limited budget.
"There's just not a whole lot of money there,"
Glanzer said.
Archer has had seven different city managers since
2001, most recently Ruth Henderson who was filling
in on an interim basis.
The commission is getting along well with the new
city manager, Glanzer said.

way of giving thanks.
Around noon on Tuesday at the
Cleather Hathcock Sr. Community
Center, Adrian Peterson's father, Porter
Peterson, welcomed a large gathering
of area residents, many of whom were
elderly.
"Adrian wanted to make sure that
everyone knows he sends his love
back to everyone and wishes he could
be here," said Porter Peterson who
explained that Adrian was unable to
attend because of football practice
schedule conflicts.
The Peterson Thanksgiving dinner
giveaways have always come with the
necessities for a tasty, wholesome and
filling meal. But the Thanksgiving
dinners this year will be even better with
all the extra fixings. The dinners came
complete with turkey, stuffing, potatoes,
corn, cranberry sauce, brown and serve
rolls, green beans, sweet potatoes and a
pie. The extra sides were made possible
this year though a matching donation
from Hitchcock's Market.
In the absence of Adrian Peterson,
his mother Reatha, father Porter, sister
Keisha and brother Rodney, along


with friends all helped to hand out the
dinners.
In a telephone interview, Adrian said
the Thanksgiving dinners were a symbol
of his appreciation for his community.
"Even though I couldn't be there
for the turkey giveaway this'year, I still
wanted to show love to my city and my
people.
"Your hometown is what builds you
as a person and builds your character.
"When I was growing up inAlachua,
it was like everyone in town was one
big family. Everyone supported me
and this is my way of giving back," said
Peterson.
In an interview last year, Adrian
Peterson told seniors "No matter where
I am, Chicago, California or anywhere,
everyone knows I'm from Alachua and
this will always be my hometown."
Adrian Peterson's Thanksgiving
dinner giveaway was one of several
such events in the Alachua area. In
all, over 200 turkey dinners were given
out through various organizations and
people, including First Presbyterian
Church of Alachua, First United
Methodist Church of Alachua, Alachua


Elementary, Alarion Bank, Alachua
Police Department's Joel DeCoursey,
Horace Jenkins and the Petersons,
among others.
Adrian's older brother,. Michael
Peterson, an Atlanta Falcons linebacker,
will either donate toys for children or
dinners for families during the days
preceding Christmas, although Reatha
Peterson said the final decision had not
yet been made.
The Peterson brothers both played
football at Santa Fe High School.
Adrian Peterson, 29, graduated from
Georgia Southern University where he
starred on the 1999 and 2000 NCAA
I-AA national championship teams
before being drafted by the NFL in 2002.

state competition's 12-year

Saturday, theRaiders also

The wins started

School in Bradenton. There
the top five bands in each
class, which had qualified
for the semifinals through
regional competitions,
battled for the pass to move
on to the final round in St.

Bisco said although
the trophy has been brought
home and marching season
has ended its four-month
run, the students will not
be resting anytime soon.
Most, of the musicians
will finish the school year
playing in the symphonic

only differ from marching

classical music and indoor
performances.
The 29-year-old
band director also said
he sees how the students
performing in bands have
a higher interest in school
and better grades during
music season.
"Even with our regular
practice schedule, the

The HyGreen system
consists of a hand-washing
monitor at each soap or gel
dispenser, an alert system
at each patient's bed,
and a notification badge
worn by each hospital
employee. The monitor
is alerted when a staff
member cleans his or her
hands, sweeping the area
to confirm the presence of
antiseptic and illuminating
a light on the employee's
badge. The information
is immediately sent to a
database allowing officials
to determine if and when
the hand washing occurred.
Finally, when a healthcare
worker comes within a few
feet of a patient's bed, the
alert system checks to see
if the notification badge is
illuminated. If it is not, the
badge vibrates to notify the
staff member to disinfect
his or her hands.
The Sid Martin
incubator offers biotech
startup companies like AFT
and Xhale the opportunity
to grow into independent
firms while conserving
operatingspace and money.
The 40,000 square foot
facility is home to 22 wet
labs and over $1 million in


shared equipment.
"There is a benefit to
being with birds ofa feather,
meaning companies can
interact with other small
startups like themselves,"
said Patti Breedlove,
associate director of the
incubator.
The incubator also
offers companies the
opportunity to network
with attorneys, insurance
agencies and even investors
that may not be found
locally, Breedlove said.
"It's a chance to
introduce them to people
who will help grow their
company;" she said.
Representatives
of Santa Fe College's
Center for Innovation and
Economic' Developnient,
or CIED program, referred
AFT to the Sid Martin
incubator. The CIED
program is also a small
business incubator used to
help companies develop
relationships and access
business development
resources.

y GABRIELA IZARRA
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY A
Jonesville resident is taking
it upon herself to make
sure that needy families
in Newberry celebrate the
holidays the right way.
Missy Gibson. is
launching Hope For
Holidays in Newberry,
a program that she was
involved with in Gainesville
until four years ago.
"I've never done
anything quite this big on
my own," Gibson said.
With the help of some
high' school students,
Gibson -is requesting a-list
of the 25 neediest families
from each Newberry


school. A description of
each family, as well as a
wish list will be posted on
paper stars throughout the
.city churches, restaurants,
etc.
Newberry residents can
adopt a family by taking a
star and donating the items
on the family's wish list.
Residents who do not
adopt a family but would
still like to make donations
can do so as well.
The donation site has
not yet been determined,
but should be known within
the coming week.
"I love these kids, and I
love these people," Gibson

A message from the desk of

Sheriff Sadie Darnell

Traveling criminals


ims is me tme or year
that our moderate climate
brings lots of visitors to
the state. Not all are just
here to enjoy the climate,
though. Now is the time
that we begin to see'groups
or families of organized
criminals soliciting door-to-
door. These groups tend to
target our elderly population
with roof repairs, asphalt
sealing or repair and tree
trimming services.


These criminals tend
to use high-pressure sales
techniques and travel from
town-to-town. Oftentimes,
they show up at your door
claiming to have materials
that were left over from a
previous job and offering
discount work. Once they
make a deal, they try to
confuse the victim to extort
more money or when finished
claim. to have done more
work than originally agreed


upon and need more money.
The jobs done are usually
substandard or create more of
a problem for the homeowner.
These groups tend to be
hard for law enforcement to
identify and move from the
area quickly.
Here, are some tips to
watch out for.
* Solicitors going door-to-
door
* Unsolicited offers of home
repair


* High pressure sales tactics
* Clean, new vehicles with
out-of-state license plates
* Area codes from outside the
area and toll free numbers
* Left over materials claims
* Requests for payments in
cash
If you suspect or
experience this activity call
the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office at 352-955-1818
immediately.

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2009



Unity of the spirit in the bond of peace


Ephesians chapter 4, St. Paul warns
the Christians in the city of Ephesus to
lead a life worthy of Christ's calling, a
challenge that wouldn't seem difficult for
folks in the first century-they
wouldn't have real temptations
compared 'to our modem,
civilized but depraved society.
But, what was life really like
in Ephesus around the year 60
AD?
Ephesus was an important
city close to the middle.of the
western coast of Asia Minor,
a capital city in the Roman
Empire 200 years before Saint
Paul visited it. The people of THE VEN
LEA
Ephesus were half Greek and LE ain
half Asiatic, so their religion Church,
and superstitions were a A pari
mixture of East and West. Christian
The main object of worship Ch
was the goddess Diana, a
western idol of fertility, but
the style of worship had a lot of, Ojipptal
mystery associated with it. The image
of Diana was wood and believed to hta e
fallen from heaven and it was anatomically
correct. Ephesus was also known for its
theatres, its baths, and libraries, and was a
well established political, commercial, and


of Jesus Christ to Ephesus through his
powerful preaching, naturally his message
was resisted. Paul condemned'the world,
the flesh, and false religion and he labored
extensively to establish
Christianity in this pagan
city. According to the Book
of -Acts, chapter 20, Paul
remained in Ephesus for more
S than two years and 'ceased not
0, to warn.every one of them day
S and night with tears'. Paul's
ministry was said to have
turned the people to Christ as
their first love, but then the
temptations of lavish living
. JOHN E. turned this love into a cold
SURE heart towards Christ.
Siineille. The first century Christian
h of the living in Ephesus really.
Episcopal wasn't much different than
urch 20th century Christian life;
temptations remain what
they've always been to
Christians living in a worldly society.
The warnings St. Paul gives are worth
our consideration-he calls on the people
of Ephesus to consider the vocation to
which they have been called and to live in
a manner consistent with this high calling.
The proper attitude is one of lowliness and


unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
But what does lowliness, meekness, long
suffering, forbearance, and unity have
to do with our calling? These are the
requirements that were given to people
living in a time very much like ours, and
worshipping in a church very much like
our own. What does it say to us?
The biggest problem facing churches
in America is an inflated opinion of
the individual against that of a Church
community. We aren't saved by God's
Grace to live selfishly, isolated from the
rest,of the Body of Christ. By the Spirit of.
God we must keep unity in the One Body
of Christ, being humble with one another,
patient, forbearing the faults of others,
for the sake of the true calling which is
manifest in the unity of the Body of Christ.
Today, the founding of new churches day
by day under an assumed authority have
become examples of what St. Paul rejected.
What's the opposite of lowly? Pride.
What's the opposite of meekness?
Authoritarianism. What's the opposite
of forbearance? A spirit of division. All


of this results in discontented people who
band together against the Church that was
established by the authority qf Christ.
They go against the Body of Christ that
is made up of all baptized Christians who,
by their rebirth, share in all the spiritual
gifts of God, gifts that belong to the Body
and not to individuals. Those who leave
the unity of the Body set themselves up as
the self-exalted rulers of a new church and
reject the peace which comes through unity
in the Spirit of God.
For those who, like the Ephesians,
are called to the Body of Christ, must
remember that our aim is to seek a greater
good than the happiness and blessing of
an individual. If we're to remain faithful
to God and fulfill our calling, we must
learn what it is to be lowly, long suffering,
patient, forbearing, for the sake of unity
which is the proof of our baptism into the
Body of Christ. Then we show .that we
love theChurch, as does Christ who gave
Himself for the Church.

Holiday cooking safety tips


Special to
Alachua County Today
ALACHUA COUNTY
The holidays are upon
us and many families are
already looking forward to
a wonderful dinner with
loved ones and friends.
However, .extensive
cooking can result in
kitchen fires and other
dangerous mishaps like
burns and scalds. Moreover,
many people just can't
celebrate Thanksgiving
without a delicious turkey
gracing the table; but,
serving a traditional turkey
requires extra attention to
safety. The following tips
are meant to lessen the
chance of common holiday
accidents or injuries
occurring in your home.
Start your holiday
cooking with a clean
stove and oven.
Turn pot handles toward
the rear of the stove:
Don't wear dangling
jewelry or clothing with
loose sleeves when
cooking. Sleeves can
catch on fire and jewelry'
can snag on pot handles
causing spills in addition
to severe scalds and
bums.
* Nearly 50% of house
fires across the nation
start in the. kitchen, so


never leave your cooking
unattended, even for a
moment.
* Have a working. fire
extinguisher nearby and
know how to use it.
* In the event of a fire
or medical emergency,
always call 9-1-1.
Turkey frying safely
Thanksgiving is a time
of celebration and cooking
as millions of people across
the United States come
together to share food and
good cheer. A variation
of. cooking the traditional
Thanksgiving turkey has
gained in popularity in
recent years. Deep frying
a turkey can be done
safely and add spice to the
traditional Thanksgiving
dinner, but there are some
safety tips that should be
followed.
Instructions for safely
frying .a 1Thanksgiving
turkey
* Oil inside turkey fryers
can overheat, splash onto
the fryers' open flame and
ignite causing house fires
and property damage.
* Fryers overfilled with oil
may spill when the turkey
is placed into the cooking
pot causing severe bums
and possibly starting a fire
that can swiftly engulf the
entire fryer and spread.
* Turkey fryers should


always be used on a flat
surface, outdoors and
at a safe distance from
buildings
* Never use turkey fryers
on wooden decks or
in garages. It can be
tempting to fry your
turkey on the porch if the
weather is inclement, but
this is very dangerous and
can result in a house fire
which could ruin your
holiday
* Never leave the fryer
unattended. Most units
do not have thermostat
controls, so you must
watch the fryer carefully
to keep an eye on the oil
temperature. Remember
that the oil will continue
to heat until it catches fire
* Generally, it is best to
keep the temperature at
3500F. If any smoke
at all is noticed coming
from a heating pot of
oil, the oil is overheated
and the burner should be
turned off immediately.
According to the National
Turkey Federation,
cooking oils with high
smoke points should be
used when frying turkeys.
Peanut oil, which has
the highest .smoke'
point (4250F) is highly
recommended
* Keep children and pets
away from the fryer when


in use. Even after use,
bear in mind that the oil
inside the cooking pot
can remain dangerously
hot for hours after use.
To avoid oil spillover
and splashing, do not
overfill your fryer and be
extremely careful when
lowering your turkey into
the pot
Use. well-insulated
potholders or oven mitts
when touching pot or lid
handles and wear safety
goggles to protect your
eyes from oil splatter.
Make sure the turkey is
completely thawed and be
careful with marinades.
Oil and water don't mix,
and water may cause
the hot oil to spill over,
igniting a fire or even
creating an explosion
hazard.
Keep an all-purpose fire
extinguisher nearby and
know how to use it
Never use water to
extinguish an oil or grease
fire and immediately call
9-1-1 for help if a fire
should occur
The Alachua County
Department of Public
Safety and Gainesville
Fire Rescue encourage
everyone to have a safe and
happy holiday.

SunState Federal Credit Union and Alachua
County Today are partnering to bring you "Beautiful
Music." The purpose of this campaign is to get young
people reading. Alachua County Today will publish
an 8-chapter serialized short story, "Beautiful Music"
as part of our Newspapers in Education program. The
newspapers will be sent home with the students after
the project for the week is completed so that parents can
share the stories with their children.


Living on her family's farm in 1814 Vermont, the
war seems far away to young Violet Howard. As the war
draws nearer so does a song that would later be of great
importance, penned first as a poem during a nearby naval
battle in Baltimore, Maryland.
As Violet learns the words of this patriotic song, she
doesn't know that those words will one day become her
country's national anthem.
"Beautiful Music" tells the story of how a little tune,
written in the midst of battle, became the greatest song
in America.
