TEACHERS:

Santa Fe High School teacher of the year


her students are highly engaged,"
Bedoya-Burklew said.
"She has a gift for developing
a very strong connection with her
students."
Feagin finds innovative ways to
keep her second graders laughing
and learning, Bedoya-Burklew said.
"She's the type of teacher
students dream of having."
On the day of the award
ceremony, Alachua Elementary's
Pam Evers got a visit from a former
student. It was a young man she had
taught more than a decade ago. He
had come,to thank her for changing
his life around.
All those years ago, Evers
sparked his interest in reading by
giving him his first book, "Harry
Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."
Once an academically troubled
student, he became an avid reader
and a good student.
Alachua Elementary Principal
Jim Brandenburg called the
event serendipitous, since it was
only hours before she would be
recognized as the school's teacher
of the year.
"The awards and recognition are
nice, but I think that was even more
important to Pam," Brandenburg
said. "Her joy comes from the
growth of the kids."
As the Mebane Middle School
Department Chair of Science,
Carmella O'Steen heads the science
fair and teaches life science and


geography.
Mebane Principal Shane Andrew
said O'Steen is one of many great
teachers at Mebane.
"She's indicative of the fabulous
teachers we have on campus,"
Andrew said.
He said where O'Steen excels
is her ability to go beyond the
textbook. He often hears the
students talk about her labs where
they will bring in insects to examine
or dissect owl pellets. Andrew also
praised O'Steen's versatility. Once
an elementary school teacher, she
is now certified to teach all subjects
on the middle school level. She has
more than 20 years of experience
teaching in Alachua County.
In only his second year at Santa
Fe High School, Jay Jolicoeur was
recognized as the school's Teacher
of the Year. Principal Bill Herschleb
said Jolicoeur is held in high regard
by both students and faculty.
"He's done a remarkable job,"
Herschleb said. "He's a pleasure to
work with."
Jolicoeur became the first
teacher to teach AP Chemistry at
Santa Fe High School. To prepare
for the class, he took a special prep
course over the summer.
Herschleb lauded Jolicoeur's
brief tenure for his enthusiasm,
passion and high-caliber teaching.

City donates to two volunteer fire departments


left to be sold are assorted hose sections and
connecters, extraction equipment, emergency
medical service supplies and other miscellaneous
equipment.
Smyth said he plans to donate the other items,
which don't have any market value due to age.
He wants to donate the city's 1987 GMC pumper
to the Pine Log Volunteer Fire Department in the
Florida panhandle. The pumper may no longer
have market value, but it is still serviceable for
smaller departments like the one in Pine Log,
which has a budget of $4,500 this year.
He also plans to donate the other fire truck
to the.West Putnam Volunteer Fire Department,
another rural department that depends on
donations to continue operations.

SHUPE:
Continued from page Al

Former mayor, Jim
has tentative plans to apply for the position.
Gabriel served three consecutive terms on
the commission before he lost his seat as an
incumbent in November's annual election.
Vying for two seats, newcomers Dean Davis
and Eric May were the highest vote getters of
the seven candidates, with 364 and 297 votes
respectively. Gabriel ended third with 253 votes,
ending his run on the commission.
"You would think from a community
standpoint that the next person, the highest vote
getter,.should certainly be considered a candidate
for that spot," Gabriel said. "So yes I'm going to
fill out an application."
Because a replacement will be chosen by the
commission and not the public, May said he sees
his responsibility as selecting a candidate who
represents Shupe's values of fiscal conservatism.
"I'm looking for someone who will fill her


Many of these items were donated to the
city in the first place, when the police and fire
departments were first started.
Smyth said he had a rough idea of what
the equipment was worth from previous
experience, but he also checked with a couple
of commissioners to get input on the sale of the
bigger items.
Any transaction of more than $1,500 must
come before the commission for approval,'
meaning that Smyth must come before the
commission before final approval of the sale of
larger items like the pumper and the fire truck.

Gabriel, will apply
shoes as closely as possible because ultimately
she was voted in," May said Tuesday. "I'm not
looking to switch ideals regardless who got this
number of votes. She was the first one to land
on fiscal conservatism...and she won by a huge
majority."
But in light of having to fill Shupe's void,
Coughlin expressed his regret for having to
replace the commissioner who served since 2008
and had more than one more year left in her term.
"I personally will miss serving with [Shupe]
because she was a longtime resident of the
community and cared a great deal, still cares
I'm sure, and without these personal issues,
she would be sitting here, right here with us
today," Coughlin said. "And that would be my
preference."

Waldo Historical Society looking forward to new museum


somebody's grandmother and the handkerchief
that some lady here in town, she's in her 80s,
she took to her daughter's wedding, you know,
sentimental things you can't replace," said Lucy
Roe Cook, board member of the organization.
"So we decided to just keep that one and make
just a quilt of pictures to raffle."
The quilt contains 35 panels and was a
collaborative effort between members of the
club. The enthusiastic members sorted through
an extensive collection of photos, narrowing the
choices down to 20 historical Waldo buildings.
The quilt also features historically relevant
items such as oranges, cotton, sweet potatoes
and pork that were a part of the city's source of
income for many years.
The club was recently promised space in an
abandoned building in the city on NE Waldo
Road which they look forward to using as a
museum. Members intend to put the historic
quilt on permanent display in the museum.
The building sits in front of the current coffee
store that formerly served as the city's bank
and directly across from the faded red caboose
car. The caboose will be part of the museum's
railroad exhibition, tying into the city's historic
significance as an important rail junction on the
Florida Transit Railway.
At this time, members have no set date for
occupying the museum. The building requires

political shift.
"My intent at this point
is Mr. Drumm could be
the greatest city manager
we've ever had or the
worst, but I don't know
and I can't decide that
right now," Commissioner
Eric. May, one of two new
commissioners elected in
November, said Tuesday.
"Since the commission has
changed, I think we need
to allow time to see if he
can serve us as diligently
as [he served] the last
commission."
But the commission's
proposal Monday does not
take all options away from
the city manager. Because
commissioners failed to
warn Drumm they planned
to change his contract at
least six months before it
expires March 9, it already
automatically renewed for
four years, advised city
attorney Thomas Depeter.
Now Drumm can opt to
follow the commission's'
proposal or keep the four-
year contract to which he is
entitled.
Drumm's four-year
contract was signed on
July 20, 2006 and states if
"the city does not notify
[Drumm] of the intention
to non-renew his contract
within six months of its
expiration, the contract
shall be deemed renewed
under the same terms and
conditions..."
SBecause the commission
missed their deadline, they
would have to pay Drumm
a six-month severance pay
on his $87,200 salary if
they .fire him at any point
in the current contract.
Had they notified Drumm
in time, his performance-
based contract would have
allowed the commission
to part ways with no
consequences.
Although termination
was not addressed as
an option Monday,
commissioners also
voted to move Drumm's
evaluation date from
April to January 2011, six
months before the proposed
contract would end July
2011. If Drumm accepts the
16-month contract to take
effect July 20, he could
be fired anytime before
January and receive no
severance.
Depeter said he will
draft the proposed contract
in writing this week, which
will be formally voted on
by the commission Feb.
25. Drumm can then accept
or reject the shortened
agreement.
In discussions Monday,
Commissioner Larry
Travis voted in favor of a
shorter term for Drumm
but stressed his approval of
the manager he has worked
with for four years.
"If Mr. Drumm can't
work with this present
commission, then we have
other ways to take care of
that," Travis said. "He's
bright enough to know
that's the way it goes...

Some citizens defended Drumm,

criticized commission


even in bad times he's been
able to put money away
in the fund balance, and I
think that's a really good
thing."
Citizens also testified on
Drumm's behalf, criticizing
some commissioners for
blaming the city manager
for some of the city's
current troubles.
In a discussion last
month, Mayor William
Coughlin pointed at
controversies that have
arisen in the last few years of
Drumm's management like
the wrongful termination
of Ginger Travers in 2008
from the police department,
who was awarded damages
in arbitration; the current
lawsuit filed by fired
police lieutenant Gordon
Fulwood against the city;
and the handling of the
Pigg property that has cost
High Springs thousands of
dollars in the process of
selling it.
"Although some of
you may object to prior
commissions and actions
of prior commissions,
it is absolutely unfair to
penalize Mr. Drumm for
following the direction of
course of commissions
in the past, because those
were the governing bodies
of the time," business
owner Lucie Regensdorf
said Monday. "You can
renegotiate the terms of the
agreement, but for what
purpose...what message
are you sending to him


after he has relied on these
terms?"
Before casting the
only vote against this new
proposal, Commissioner
Dean Davis also raised
concerns on who was at
fault for letting the six-
month warning period
pass without alerting
commissioners. Another
unanswered question was
whether Drumm's contract
technically ends March 9 or
July 20.
Drumm began working
for the city March 9, 2004
on a two" year contract,
but by March 2006
commissioners failed to
end or renegotiate, so the
contract was automatically
renewed. Commissioners
finally renewed his contract
July 20, 2006 but retro-
dated' the terms to also
apply to those previous
four months Drumm had
worked since the contract
expired that March.
On Monday
commissioners agreed to
work with the March 9 end
date to avoid confusion
but stressed an urgency to
finalize an agreement, no.
matter the terms..
"I'm ready to move
forward and get this year on
the road," Coughlin said. "I
don't want to be bogged
down hiring a new city
manager or in court with an
old one."

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

You and your toothbrush


Q: Is there anything
special I should know about
toothbrushes?
A: Your toothbrush is
your firsti line of defense
in your effort to keep your
mouth clean and healthy. It's
one of the first things you
reach for in the morning and
one of the last things you
use at night. Combined with
faithful flossing, brushing
your teeth regularly will help
keep your smile bright and
sturdy.
Here are some facts
to keep in mind: The
American Dental Association
recommends that you get a
new toothbrush every .3 to.
4 months. If the bristles get
frayed, though, you should
get rid of the brush right


away. Frayed bristles can
injure gums and don't clean
as effectively. A plethora
of models is on the market,
both powered 'and manual.
Some offer particular benefit
if you have a dexterity issue.
Theie's very little difference
in the results from a power
or manual toothbrush as long
as the brushing process is
thorough.
Whichever your
choice, look for the ADA
Seal of Acceptance on the
package. The seal means the
organization has established
the product's claims to safety
and effectiveness. Ask your
dentist or dental hygienist
about the type of toothbrush
that's right for you and get
some tips on technique.

Sick wildlife threatens local dogs


Special to
Alachua County Today
ALACHUA COUNTY An increase in canine
distemper infection in wildlife has veterinarians worried
about a recurrence of an outbreak that killed more than 600
dogs in Alachua County three years ago.
A sudden increase in residents reporting raccoons
and foxes seen during daylight hours with neurologic
Signs alerted animal control officers to the problem. After
Rabies tests came back negative, Alachua County Animal
Services director David Flagler called in experts from the
University of Florida for help..
"We tested 5 sick raccoons and 1 fox, and all of them
came back positive for canine distemper" said University
of Florida veterinarian Julie Levy. "This is frightening
because distemper is extremely infectious to dogs and has
a high fatality rate." ,
In teciei racc .-ire a frequent souree-of spread to
susceptible dogs. When infected dogs are brought into
intensive dog housing facilities such as animal shelters,
Sthe disease can spread throughout the facility, especially


among vulnerable populations such as puppies. Recent
outbreaks of distemper in Orange County, Brevard County,
and Pasco County have killed hundreds of dogs that were
not current on vaccinations.
"So far, we have not seen any evidence of transmission
to dogs in our shelter," said shelter veterinarian Randy
Caligiuri. "The staff remembers the outbreak in 2007 and
is very careful to vaccinate all dogs at admission and to
avoid any contamination from the sick wildlife."
Canine distemper is a virus that affects both domestic
and wild canid species, ferrets, and raccoons. The virus
attacks the respiratory, intestinal, and neurological systems..
The mdst common signs of infection are discharge from
the eyes and nose, coughing, staggering, or seizures.
Distemper is easily prevented by vaccination, so all dog
and ferret owners should check with their veterinarians to
be sure their pets are up to date on their vaccines. Once a
dog is infected \ ith the virus there is no effective treatment
-irnmortaity can exceed percent. ** "- -
Maddies's Shelter Medicine Program at the University
of Florida has developed guidelines to help animal
shelters and pet rescue groups to protect their dogs against


distemper. For more information about disteniper virus

The second and greater Eve


SIf people allow themselves to be composition of the liquid after the miracle

expression to her when He entrusts her to
theApostle John. "Woman, behold thy son.
Then saith he to ihe disciple, behold thy
mother!"(John 19:26) Why would Jesus
address His mother in such an impersonal
a manner? At the beginning and end of
His ministry, Jesus intentionally chooses
a specific way of addressing His mother,
a way that can cause tension for modem
readers with sensitive ears. I suspect that
Mary had sensitive ears and a burdened
heart, unsure just how this special Son of
hers would fulfill His purpose on earth.
At the wedding, Mary wanted to
let the world know of His mission, she
thought that it could be accomplished by
His performing a miracle in public. She
assumed,,as many have, that Jesus' coming
was about power and might. But He isn't
to be known in power, but in person, in
who He is as the Son of His Father, and the.
One who joins Himself to all of humanity,
like-Adam once did.
The reason for the impersonal address
to His mother is to show her that their
mother/son relationship has to give way to
something far more beautiful and rich, that
He isn't only the Son of Mary, He is the Son

of Man; He is joined to all of humanity and
not just the genealogy of His mother. She
hasn't seen or understood that union-she
only sees her Son as an Individual hanging
alone on the cross.
Another astounding fact is that Mary is
the mother who gave birth to the.second
Adam; she is the second and greater Eve.
Imagine the difficulty Mary would have
trying to understand the cosmic role she'd
entered into by submitting herself to be
the handmaid of the Lord. She is the
mother of our Lord, but she's more than
that. She, through Jesus Christ, will truly,
become John's mother, and John, through. '
Jesus Christ, will become a son of the new '
humanity birthed by the Virgin Mary.
In all of this we're to think relationally
not religiously; we are joined to Jesf u
to have eternal life!: We must humble
ourselves to the more wonderful truth tha
He joins Himself to us at every event life, whether it is in the joy of a wedding
or the anxiety of losing a loved one. He s- -
with us and comforts us, and the greatest:
miracle we can receive is His presence -

The story of Hannah, a little girl on the American

letters on the Pony Express.
Hannah learns that you can keep old friends while
making new ones.
She also discovers fun on the riverboats and how,
by working hard, anyone can make a dream come true.


HANNAH'S DI

A Tale Of The Pony Express

Chapter Five by Kay Hively


It was chilly when Hannah and her mother started to town one
Saturdayin October Hannah wore her new coat. Her mother had
a shawl on her shoulders. Both wore gloves.
Hannah felt very grownup in her new coat. As the two ladies
passed the Cole house, Robert came charging out the front door.
He waved to them and wished them a good morning. He had
finished his chores at home and was .on his way to the Pony
Express office.
When they got downtown, Hannah and her mother shopped
in several stores and then walked down to the river. Hannah's
father was waiting for them. Quickly he opened his office door
and escorted the ladies in out of the cold.
Things were very busy on the wharf. Hannah's father said there
was much cargo to deliver up and down the Missouri River before
the water turned to ice.
Hannah watched the men working, and she looked at all the boats
docked at the shore. Each boat was special. Some were very plain.
Others were flashy and colorful. Most of them carried only cargo,
but some also had passengers. Hannah thought it would be fun to
ride on a riverboat.
When it was time for Hannah and her mother to go home,
Mr. Evans had an announcement. Next Saturday, he said,
the showboat would come to St. Joseph.
It was a long week for Hannah, but finally the big day came.
She and her mother did not go shopping that morning. Her father
came home for dinner and then walked his family back to town.
As they neared the river, Hannah's eyes lighted up.
There, in front of her father's office, was the showboat. Hannah
had never seen anything so bright and beautiful. It was painted

Classroom Extensions
Things to Think About and Do -
A. Hannah's mother wore a shawl to town. Do you know
what a shawl is? Use the dictionary and look up the
word "shawl."
B. Why can't riverboats go up and down the river in
winter? If you rode on a riverboat, what would you'
see as you traveled? Write about a short trip on a
riverboat.


N t e t Si


with every color in the rainbow. Fags were flying from every post
.and knob, and happy music was coming inside from the boat..
When the show began, Hannah and her parents were entertained
with music, stories, jokes, funny skits and even a magic show.
Everyone in St. Joseph seemed to. be on the showboat. It was
the best time Hannah ever had.
That night, a tired Hannah wrote in her diary:
"Dear Diary, The showboat came to town today. It was the best
thing I ever saw. Papa liked the dancing girls. Mother liked the sad
song. I liked the banjo player best of all. I wonder if Betsy'has been
on a showboat."

ACORN Clinic receives

surgeon general's award


Special to
Alachua County Today
BROKER
The Alachua County
Organization for Rural
Needs, Inc. (ACORN)
Clinic was one of 20
recipients of the Surgeon
General's Health
Innovation Prevention
and Management Awards,
the Florida Department
of Health announced Jan.
27. The award honors
organizations, businesses
or programs that are
innovative in bringing
preventative health care to
their members, employees
or community.
The ACORN Dental
Clinic Children's Oral
Health and Educational
Outreach program was
one of 20 recipients
of the award, chosen
from 34 applications.
The Children's Oral
Health and Educational
Outreach Program
provides interactive oral
hygiene education to pre-
kindergarten, kindergarten
S and first grade children in
north central Florida. The
Tooth Fairy, her assistant,
and Bob, the Alligator,
visit classrooms in rural
communities to demonstrate
and teach the importance of
tooth brushing and basic
good nutrition. Each child


is given a take home bag
with toothbrush, toothpaste,
oral health education
and secondhand smoke
brochures.
Many of the children
are also enrolled in the
ACORN Dental Clinic,
where they receive dental
care, often for the first time.
In 2009, 85 percent of the
children enrolled completed
all the dental care planned
for them, improving their
oral health and, thus, their
overall health. Each year,
51 million school hours
are missed due to 6ral
disease, and tooth decay is
the single most common
chronic disease among
young children.
A panel of experts
from the Department of
Health made the selection.
State Surgeon General
Ana Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. said, "I am proud
of the creative public
health efforts demonstrated
by all applicants. I
specifically commend
the award winners for
their accomplishment in
implementing innovative
ideas that can be shared
with and 'adopted by
other groups, therefore
replicating their successful
model."
