Corrections/Clarifications

In a Feb. 4 article titled "Commission blocked from hearing Fulwood's
grievance," it was incorrectly stated what was being appealed. Fulwood's
representative was appealing a Nov. 9 punishment he received that was
apparently used as progressive discipline leading to his Jan. 21 termination.
City attorney Thomas Depeter has stated the city commission is ineligible to
hear Fulwood's appeal of this previous punishment, not that of his termination.

In a separate Feb. 4 article titled "Future of High Springs city manager
uncertain," it was incorrectly reported that High Springs Mayor William
Coughlin stated he received complaints from citizens about hostility from City
Manager James Drumm. Upon further investigation, our reporting staff has
learned that Coughlin actually described the hostility as being from the
community toward Drumm, rather than as had been reported.
Alachua County Today regrets these errors and/or inaccuracies.

candy, flowers, and gifts. And all in the
name of St.Valentine,' the patron saint of
lovers for whom the day is named.
It can be a day to anticipate or a day to
fear.
Valentine's Day has been celebrated on
February 14th for over 1,500 years, so that
would pretty much cover the entire lives
of anyone breathing today. It hasn't been
a Johnny-come-lately to the holiday scene,
so that excuse won't hold water.
Truly, on the day especially set aside for
lovers, there is no excuse that would satisfy
a forgotten mate or significant other.
The best advice is simply not to let that
happen. '


laL ov1er ,/v-percent oi an
Valentine's Day cards are purchased in the
six days prior to the observance, meaning
that you will only be elbowing 50-percent
of the remainder of the world scanning
those card racks. Math majors will tell us
that procrastinators such as yourself will be
.competing with, at most, 94 million others
desperately trying to save a sinking ship.
Consider that e'en at this advanced date,
you can save yourself stress and ensure
a romantic Valentine's Day by 'spending
a lot of money for last minute flowers or
reservations at your special restaurant if
there are any to be had.
Or you could use the following fill-in-
the-blank poem (in your handwriting of


ie"'s Day

course) to explain why you wouldn't'even
pop for a dollar of two and buy a card:
Roses are Red, violets are blue, those store-
bought cards aren't good enough for you.
Good luck with that one.
You could make dinner at home. Just
make sure there is a, plentiful supply of
chocolate.
Chocolate helps.
So on this special day when sweethearts
honor each other with candy, flowers, and
cards, get off your can and do something
for that valentine in your life.
And by the way, just as Romeos and
Juliets come in all shapes, colors and sizes,
so too do gifts. A gift from the heart, in the
form of a few loving words is appreciated
as much, if not more,,than the store-bought
paraphernalia. But that doesn't mean one
shouldn't buy something- just in case.
Take comfort in the fact thai February
14th is, after all, just another day.
And if you buy that, then you deserve
what you get..
:And in case you're curious, you may
wonder whatever happened to St. Valentine,
the patron saint that started all this.
The story goes that he was beheaded. ,
Happy Valentine's Day!

Switch to digital expected by April


The new system not only
allows for better coordination
with other departments, it also
has a better back-up plan. The
system has a series of fail-
safes to keep communication
going in case of interruption
from a broken fiber optic
cable or other problems.
"This will provide a much
greater net of safety for our
citizens," said Newsome.
Two grants and an
anonymous private donation
of $100,000 will pay for
the transition. The grants
were both made possible
by the American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act, also
known as the federal stimulus
package. Together the two
grants amounted to about
$150,000. An anonymous
private donation of $100,000
brings the total funding for
the project to about $250,000.
The equipment costs
include paying for portable
radios, chargers, mobile
radios for vehicles, consoles
for the communications
control station and additional


components.
This leaves about-
$60,000 surplus, which will
department will use to cover
the system's monthly costs,
which total about $3,000.
The department expects
this to increase the annual
operational expenses by.
about $38,000, which will'
need to be accounted for by
the commission in the budget.
The department expects
to complete the transition by
April.
The commission was
quick to approve the spending
for the new system.
"I think it's imperative that
we have the right equipment
for our police officers to be
able to talk to whoever they
need to, to ensure their safety
and the safety of the rest of
the people that serve us and
our citizens," Commissioner
Gary Hardacre said.

STIMULUS: _____
Continued from page A 1

Alachua will continue to seek stimulus money


$20 million, was awarded for the
. wastewater treatment facility.
The money may seem unevenly
distributed in favor of one project,
but it isn't up to the city to decide
which project it sees fit to allocate
the stimulus money. Funding is
awarded by a number of different
federal and state departments based
on a variety of different criteria.
"The process for each award
is different," Alachua Interim City
Manager Traci Cain said.
The city was able to receive
such a large grant for the wastewater
project because it was considered
"shovel-ready" by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection. Construction is already
underway on the facility, which has
been in the works since 2003, Cain
said.
The money for CATS came
from a Florida Department of
Transportation grant, and the
money for the new radio system
came from a U.S. Department of
Justice grant.
These are the only three
projects for which the city has
sought stimulus funding, but with a
majority of the stimulus money still
\ if


uncommitted by the! government,
the city is considering other
projects, Cain said.
According to the ARRA Web
site, recovery.gov, only about $200
billion of the $787 billion dollars
have so far-been awarded leaving a
great deal of opportunity for future
project funding down the road.
"The city will continue to
evaluate its Capital Improvements
Program for projects to secure funds
for infrastructure, quality of life
improvements, communications,
reclaimed water systems, etc."
At the Monday commission
meeting, resident Michael Canney
asked if the procuring of money
on previous projects would hurt
the city's chances.of. getting grants
later.
Cain said, in an e-mail, it isn't
clear what effect the three grants
already secured will have securing
future grants.
"ARRA funds are funneled
through many agencies and
the selectioti/award criteria are
different for each," Cain said. "The
City will continue to pursue grant
funding, ARRA or otherwise,
regardless of our early success in


securing ARRA funds."
Alachua has been the most
successful city in the county
outside of Gainesville in securing
stimulus money.
Hawthorne, Newberry, Archer,
Micanopy and High Springs have
all received significantly less
money, according to the latest
information at recovery.gov.
The stimulus program is not
just about building infrastructure,
but also about creating jobs. Cain
said it can be hard to judge the
jobs created from the city's three
stimulus projects, but the benefit to
the community is wide-reaching.
A new wastewater facility will
allow the city to pursue future
development, CATS will give
transportation to those who don't
have it and a new radio system
will help the police department's
ability to communicate with
other departments and respond to
emergencies.

Alachua soccer team takes first place


Photo special to Alachua county loaay
L- R: Patrick Fricks, Alex Salbert, Jimmy Carr, Arric Wali and Pedro Garcia of the
Alachua Soccer League Hurricanes will be competing in the Nationals Tournament
in August after recently winning the "3V3" Keystone Tournament.


Special to
Alachua County Today

ALACHUA The
Alachua Soccer League
Hurricanes recently took
first place at the Challenge
Sports "3V3" Keystone
Tournament. 3v3' Soccer,
,commonly referred to. as
a "small sided" game, is
played with each team
having only have three
players on the field at a
time. It uses a much smaller
net than full sided soccer
and there is no keeper,
requiring the blending of
strategy, individual skills
and teamwork.
The team, led by Coach
John Salbert, made its first
appearance Jan. 30, 2010,
after having been organized
less than six days. 'The
Hurricanes entered the
tournament hoping they
would get a, chance to
play in the Nationals
Tournament at Disney's
Wide World of Sports in
August 2010.


They entered the
tournament determined to
get a berth in Nationals,
which'would be awarded
to the top four teams in
each age group. After
losing their first game,
the Hurricanes regrouped
and came back with fierce
determination to win the
remaining five games of
the day taking first place
in the tournament, earning
the right to compete at
Nationals. Alachua was
well represented by the team
that took the tournament
by storm and the buzz that
day was, "Have you guys
seen that Alachua team?"
In preparation for the big
show at Nationals, the ASL
Hurricanes will be entering
local tournaments between
now and August.
The Alachua Soccer
League is a local volunteer
recreational soccer
program, and the road to
Nationals, which is a three-
day tournament, will be
costly. The ASL Hurricanes


is a travel team made up of
players from 'the recreation
league, and they must come
up with their own funds
for travel and fees. Salbert
estimates the team's travel
costs will exceed $1',700.
The team is pumped up
and ready for the challenge,
and are fully engaged in
raising funds through car
washes, yard 'sales, candy
sales and bake sales.
Businesses or individuals
who would like to support
the team may contact John
Salbert at 352-514-086.
Names of all sponsors and
donors will be,placed on
a banner currently being
designed by the team and
will be displayed at all
upcoming tournaments
including Nationals.
Looking ahead, if the
team does well at Nationals,
they will be eligible to
participate .in the World
Championships at Disney's
Wide World of Sports in
January 2011.

JUMP ROPE:
Continued from page A]1 .

Irby Eagles still want community's help in reaching $100K goal


physical education teacher
Ray Crone was his good
friend Albert the Alligator
from the University of
Florida.
Teachers' got the
fiorning's activities moving
with a little rope jumping
of their own. Hundreds of
youngsters followed suit
and tried their hand, or
feet as it were, at jumping
rope. Kindergarteners. and
first and second graders
competed to see who
among them could jump
the longest. In the end,
a handful of the students
remained and became the
winners in their grade level.
Jump Rope for Heart is
an educational fundraising,
event. Held-each year in
thousands of elementary
schools nationwide by
the American Heart.
Association, the program
not only helps those in
need,: but also .educates
youth about the benefits of-
physical activity, and how
to keep their hearts in good
shape.
Among special guests
assisting in the event was
the Santa Fe High School
Interact Club and Santa,
Fe High School Athletic
Director Michele Faulk
who makes it a point to
help with the competition
each year.
In addition to Albert the
Alligator, students were also
treated to an appearance by
the University of Florida
dance team otherwise
known as "The Dazzlers,"
and cheerleaders. Keeping


jumpers in their groove
was DJ Bill Hipp of Hipp
Productions who has been
keeping the heart beat of
the annual competition in'
check for the last 10 years
or so.
For the uninitiated,
jumping rope is not only
fun it's a sport ,and an
art. With names such as
"Minute Mania," "Jump
the Brook," and "Jump the
Snake," jumping rope is as
much fun as it is healthy.
The highlight of all the
rope twirling and jumping
was the "endurance jump."
Not recommended for
those weak in the knees or
ankles or short of breath
- endurance jumping sets
the pros apart from the
amateurs.
Irby ') "'Elementary
endurance winners claimed
their titles by jumping for
the longest length of time

Ask Your Dentist
by Douglas M. Adel, D.D.S. -

Denture replacement


Q: How often do
dentures need to be replaced?
A: When properly
cared for, dentures will last
a' long time. But even with
good care, they're going
to need work, and possibly
replacement, over time. Your
mouth naturally changes
with age. The ridge of your
gums can recede or shrink,
as can jaw bones. As these
changes occur, dentures can
become loose fitting. And
loose dentures can lead to
sores and infection. They
also can make chewing
difficult and change your
facial features.
Your dentist can explain
to you the difference
between relining, remaking
and rebasing your dentures
as needed. To make a


rebased denture, the dentist
will use the teeth from your
existing denture and make a
new base. Naturally, if you
break or otherwise damage
a denture, it may have to
be replaced. Though they
are sturdy enough in your
mouth, the danger with
dentures is handling them
outside the mouth. When
you are removing your
dentures, you should lean
over a folded towel. A drop
of even a few inches onto a
hard surface could damage
a denture. Regular visits to
the dentist are important for
denture wearers. You want
to make sure your dentures
are in good shape, and to
keep tabs on your general
oral health.

Biotechnology pipeline creates

opportunities for students


ALEX AUSTIN/Alachua County Today
. L-R: Surrounded byAlachua city commissioners, Santa Fe High School sophomores
Amanda Hall and Kwanza Gannon and junior Alex Kleinsasser were honored for
their involvement in the biotechnology program at Santa Fe High School.


.nearby opportunities at the
University of Florida, Santa
Fe College and Progress
,Corporate Park.
:-,"It seems only fitting
that we would have. a
biotechnology program
.:htiere at Santa Fe High
:Sthool to give these
'students an early step into
what opportunities th9re
are here," Camerlengo said.
As associate director
i of the Sid Martin Biotech
I*Icubator, Patti Breedlove
is one individual who
may be able to give these
students opportunities
down the line.
"From day one as these
programs have begun
.to create graduates, our
'* companies have been eager
to hire therb'.Bieedldve
said.
These aren't just
careers for those with.


PhDs, she said. There are
opportunities for those with
bachelors and associate
degrees, too.
"I don't think that
there's another location in
the United States that has .
this unusual juxtaposition
of training programs."
Kelly Gridley, director
of the Santa Fe College
Biotechnology program,
compared this connection
from the high school to
.the University of Florida
and Santa Fe College to
Progress. Park to a wave
pipeline, where students
can ride the wave to a better-
career.
"We offer all kinds of
options for students, and I
think that's key options'*
for -studdaits.". ; :'
Camerlengo said.
biotechnology is working
with living things and their


parts to improve life for
man. Those working in
biotechnology could end up
in fields including medical
sciences, ecological
sciences and environmental
sciences.
Breedlove said she
is overseeing programs
currently working on
solving problems like
controlling agricultural
pests and treatment for
head trauma.
Burgess toured the high
school facility recently and
wanted to give recognition*
to the students working in
the program.
"They. have recruiting
day and game day for
sports. This is our game day
for science and education."

BOY SCOUTS:
Continuedfrom page A 1

Scouts had to borrow equipment for weekend campout


window, apparently broken
for access to unlock the
front door, and discovered
missing cooking
equipment.
According to a police
report, burglars made off
with three cast iron Dutch
ovens valued at $240, three
70-gallon Igloo coolers
valued at $210, five pots,
and two turkey fryer pots
valued at $235.
"It was a loss because
we use the [equipment]
every campout, and our
boys go on one or two
campouts a month and have
cooking classes that teach
them how to do things,"
Jenkins said Tuesday.
"They're not only a big
expense but they mean a lot
to them because they use

CATS:

them all the time.".
Although police would
not comment on the stolen
property, Jenkins said troop
leaders believe the items
may have been stolen to be
pawned for their iron and
aluminum materials.
Of all weekends,
burglars hit on one of the
most inopportune times
since the 38 boy scouts that
make up troop 88 were set
to host a cookout at Camp
Shands in Melrose, Jenkins
said.
"This past weekend
we had to call other scout
troops when we went to
camp and borrow cooking
equipment because our
troop was in charge of
cooking," she said. "This
was just really bad timing."


While Alachua Police
have not yet reported
suspects in the burglary,
Jenkins said an anonymous
donor has offered a $100
reward for any tip leading
to an arrest. Anyone with
information on the burglary
can report a tip to Det.
Carrie Lund at 386-418-
1597.
Since the troop is also
out $700 in equipment,
Jenkins added that anyone
wishing to donate to the
troop to recoup losses can
send donations to PO Box
1719 Alachua, Fla., 32616
or contact Fred Hilton at
352-318-0925.

The bus fee is $1 for a one-
way trip, which is down,
from the original proposal
of $2.
The city scrapped the
original City of Alachua
Transit System (CATS)
in November 2008. It
was canceled ,after an
unsuccessful two-year
trial run because of low
ridership. The old CATS


ran from Alachua to
Gainesville and back to
help people with limited
or no transportation to.
reach employment centers
in Alachua and help senior
citizens in Alachua get to
medical appointments in
Gainesville.
Additional routes for
the new CATS service may
be considered based on the
success of the program and


the determined needs of the
city's residents. Alachua
city commissioners have
discussed connecting the
service with Gainesville's
RTS in the future if it is
.feasible.

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2010


It is God's right to rule


Many Christians drift through sermon
after 'sermon, trying to piece together
doctrine and church history from the bits
and pieces of thoughts shown to them by
the minister week after week. It's like
collecting pieces of a puzzle
and then trying to put a picture
together when you don't know
exactly what it's supposed to .
look like. The ancient church
realized this and the need for a
systematic way to preach and
teach Christian doctrine. This
led to the gradual development
of, preaching using a liturgical
calendar which, if used correctly,
teaches the entire scope of
doctrine, emphasizing the part THE VE
that's relates to the season. Al. LS
For instance, the incarnation Chull Srch
of Jesus Christ is obviously the : par
'theme'of the Christmas season, Christia
while lent emphasizes the C1
doctrine of Christ's atonement,
his sacrifice for our sin. if we
look at the entire church year and compare
doctrine to the church season, in twelve
months we see that we have a systematic
understanding essentially of what it means


EN
Al
ts

is
n
hi


to be a Christian.
The season of epiphany brings out two
very important doctrines of the church, and
even though it's a short season-between
Christmas and Lent-it's an important one.
The modem Christian church
has failed to understand and
live up to doctrine taught to
ius during epiphany and has
unwittingly crippled itself.
The following prayer,
from the 1928 Book of
Common Prayer for the
season of epiphany, points
us to one of the primary
doctrines of the season.
It speaks of the supreme
I. JOHN E. authority of God almighty in
SUREa the affairs of men. "almighty
sAnglican and everlasting God, wvho
;h of the dost govern all things in
Episcopal heaven and earth; mercifully
urch hear -the supplications of
thy people, and grant us thy
peace all the days of our life;-
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." "
This prayer is really educational in the
way that we are supposed to address God.
We call him almighty and everlasting, and


both of these traits are essential if we're
to trust in Him. Earthly kings understand
that power and authority are crucial and
that they must have total authority in
their kingdom to carry out their will for
the good of their people. God has to be
able to right every wrong and establish
his kingdom according to his will, so he
has to be almighty. God, also, has to be
greater than any earthly king, because
mortal kings die and their kingdoms often
fall when they die. Then we have the fact
that when a gracious and righteous king
dies, he's often succeeded by a tyrant who
exercises his authority to his own ends and
carnal desires. If God is to rule in heaven
and earth, as this collect suggests, his rule
must be an everlasting rule and only then
can we be sure that his kingdom will last
forever.
We must understand that it is' God's
right to rule over his creation and this fact is
central to the epiphany season. Christ was
worshipped by the wise men even though
he was only a small' child, enthroned on
the arms of his mother. They brought their
gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh, all of
which symbolize royalty and the fact that
he deserved their reverence. Their behavior


shows another important principle of the
epiphany season-the kingdom of God,
which we now participate in through Jesus
Christ, is a kingdom established in the
heart of believers who submit their wills to
the truth, regardless of the insults and scorri-
heaped on them by the unbelieving world
The worship required by our King is the
bent knee, the contrite heart, the submitted
intellect. This kingdom doesn't grow by
the use of weapons and conflict, but by the
proclamation of his truth. His kingdom on
this earth is seen most clearly in the visiiil -
church of Jesus Christ.
Epiphany teaches us something about
the kingdom of God and our king that
reigns over heaven and earth, but it must
not lead us to be prideful. It should teach.-'
us to be humble, to be servants one towaids-d -
another, to be willing to bring our talents.
and gifts to our enthroned King, just like:-
the. three wise men taught, us by their
example. We must bring our gifts and
submit our talents, not as ,though they're.
going to be abandoned but that they can'b.-
used for the good of the kingdom, for.thl.e
building up of the church. -"-

HANNAH'S DL

A Tale Of The Pony Express

Chapter Four by Kay Hively


In September Hannah had her 12th birthday. She also started back
to school in the fifth grade. As much as she loved school, Hannah
again felt sad that Betsy had gone to California. Until this year, the
two girls had walked to school together and had helped each
other with homework every night
Betsy was good in arithmetic. Hannah was better at reading
and spelling.
This year at school, Hannah heard many of the children talking
about about the Pony Express. Everyone said the Pony Express
would start delivering letters in the spring. Hannah hoped to
have a letter to Betsy on the first pony that left for California.
Because his father was working for the Pony Express company,
Robert Cole was very popular in school. All the boys dreamed of
being a Pony Express rider, so they wanted to be friends with
Robert.
Like his friends, Robert wanted to be a Pony Express riders He
longed for adventure. He also loved horses and was an excellent
rider. Robert didn't have a horse at home, but he spent his free -
time at the stables where his father worked.
Just to be close to the horses, Robert cleaned the stalls and did
other chores around the office and stables. His father allowed
him to ride one of the horses around the corral as payment
for his work.
Robert's father did not thiik his son should be a Pony Express
rider. But Robert was determined. He even thought :tout
asking his father's boss for a job.
Mr. Alexander Majors was one of the men who owned the Pony
Express. He often stopped to visit with Robert's father about the
business. Everyone said Mr. Majors was a kind man.


Classroom Extensions
Things to Think About and Do -
A. Hannah was good in reading and spelling. Make
a spelling list, using only words found in this chapter
of the story.
B. Robert could ride a horse very well. Do you know
anyone who rides a horse? Have you ever been to
a rodeo? List five things you can see at a rodeo?

Nex Wek:Chate Fie Th Sowba


When he saw Mr. Majors at the stables, Robert would mount one
of the ponies and ride around so everyone could see what a good
horseman he was. Robert was sure Mr. Majors would give him
a job if he asked.
Hannah did not care to ride a horse, but she was glad to know
the Pony Express would soon carry the mail from St. Joseph
to California. ..
She wrote in her diary:
"Dear Diary, Soon I will be able to write to Betsy. I have so many
things to tell her. I hope she will write me back. Robert Cole
wants to be a Pony Express rider. He is very good on a horse,
'but he is not very big."

Florida SADD has also
announced that Brenda
Joyner, who has been the
SADD advisor at Santa Fe
for more than 25 years, is
this year's SADD Advisor
of the Year.
"She is very deserving
of this honor," said Todd.
"Her enthusiasm and
dedication toward SADD is
truly extraordinary."
"There are so many
things out there that teens

that one bad decision can
have major consequences
and you can't turn back."

Joyner will officially begin
their terms as Florida's

conference in Orlando

also eligible for National

said Santa Fe High School
principal Bill Hferschleb.
"We're elated that both
state honorees this year
come from our school."
Recognitions ,aside,
Kaitlyn says she's loved
being a part of SADD.
"I hate to see bad things
happen to kids my age, so I
think SADD is a great thing
to be involved in," she said.
"I really feel we're, making
a difference."

Humane Society supporter offers


$50,000 Challenge Grant


Special to
Alachua County Today
GAINESVELLE With construction
of the Alachua County Humane Society's
(ACHS) new facility well underway, one
may think funding for this new project
has been met. While the ACHS has
already received great support from the
community, continued funding is necessary
for completion of the new facility. In an
effort to help the Humane Society reach
its 2 million dollar goal, a very generous
supporter has offered a challenge grant to
match donations up to $50,000.
The Humane Society currently rescues,
on average, 1,000 animals per year. With
completion of the 30,000 square' foot
facility the ACHS hopes, to, double this
figure. A different approach to animal
rescue will be taken that is more community
based and celebrates the ACHS's new


slogan; "A new life Awaits You." Rescued
Animals will have premium kenneling and
medicalfacilities. Programs such as grief
counseling and obedience training will be
offered. The new design will aid in keeping
the animals less stressed, with state of the
art living facilities, and an increase in the
animal's overall happiness.
Make a difference and help the Humane
Society reach their goals with a donation of
any amount. Donations of $500 or more
will include naming rights of a kennel and
$10,000 or more allows the donator to name
a room in the new facility. There are also
many corporate sponsorships opportunities
that will not only help the Humane Society
but also help promote your business. For
more information contact Kirk Eppenstein,
ACHS Executive Director, at 352-373-
5855 or keppenstein@alachuahumane.org.
