HIGH SPRINGS
- After five years in
operation, city officials are
predicting a grim future for
the nationally designated
High Springs Main Street
Program.
As a private non-profit
corporation, the program is
based on a model set. forth
by the National. Historic
Trust for Preservation,
with the goal of combining
historic preservation with
economic development,
explained High Springs
City Manager Jim Drumm.
Since the local program


was established five years
ago, it has been responsible
for community events like
Fantastic Fridays and the
annual High Springs River
Festival.
Though it is a private
entity and operates entirely
independent of the city
government, each year
High Springs has chosen to
award grant funding to the
program, which, according
to Drumm, accounts for
about 75 percent of Main
Street's annual budget.
In 2008, the program
entered into an agreement
with the city as an

Incoming freshmen are invited to our 9th

Kevin Purvis, Oak View Middle School


Well, it's that time of year again. As
always, the new school year brings a sense of
excitement, renewed friendships, and fresh
academic challenges, Oak View has again
earned a "B" grade for the 2009-2010 school
year. Well done everyone! The administration,
faculty and staff at OVMS take pride in our
students' accomplishments and we are excited
to meet the challenges of the 2010-2011 school
year. ,
I would also like to take this opportunity
to introduce our new Assistant Principal, Mr.
Daniel Ferguson. Mr. Ferguson comes to us
from Buchholz High School where he served as


Assistant Principal for the past seven years. He
brings a wealth of experience to the position.
Other new staff members include Dean of
Students, Mr. Scott Jamison, as well as teachers,
Mallory Ebie, Emma Goodwin, Tammy
Kavanaugh, Bobbi Scott, Stephen Carter, Sarah
Dixon, Holly Bennett, Sheri Butler, Jeff Davis
and Tracy Shuler. Welcome to the Oak View
community.
We are looking forward to an incredible
school year. For updates and other useful
information, go to our Web site at http://www.
sbac.edu/-ovms.


Bill Herschleb, Santa Fe High School


We are excited about the school year
that lies ahead. This spring there were some
changes in state and local policies that will
affect public school education in Alachua
County and Florida this year and in the future.
We are committed to make these changes as
helpful and understandable as possible for our
students at Santa Fe High School.
The school board adopted a new uniform
dress code for all schools in the district. The
code specifically outlines what is and what is
not permissible dress during the school day.
Rather than go into the detail of the policy
in this letter, we ask that you review it on
the school board Web site (http://www.sbac.
edu). You will see the actual wording of the
policy and some frequently asked questions.
with answers.' Santa Fe High School will not
be adding any additional requirements to the
policy. All schools are expected to enforce the
policy on the first day of school, Aug. 23.
The graduation requirements for students
entering the 9th grade this year are changing.
For students entering 9th grade this year, the
minimum score to pass the 10th grade FCAT
reading test (when taken in the spring of 2012)
has been changed from 300 to 327. Each
member of the entering 9th grade class must
also earn credit in algebra I and take a state
developed end of course algebra exam. They
must also earn credit in geometry. Students
must complete at least 24 credits and maintain a .


minimum 2.0 grade point average.
These changes, and other changes that,will
occur for each new 9th grade class over the next
four years, have been made by state legislature
in an effort to make Florida students more
academically prepared to be productive in the
competitive world economy. You may review
these changes to graduation requirements on the
school board Web site.
This is the year that all public high schools
in the state are fully implementing the class size
amendment of 2002. The amendment clearly
limits the number of students in core academic
classrooms (language arts, foreign language,
mathematics, science, social studies) to no more
than 25 students. Failure to meet the class size
will result in major financial penalties to the
school district. Implementing the amendment
is having an effect on our elective programs and
we have eliminated most elective classes unless
they carry a student load of at least 37 students.
We will continue to work with the requirements
of the amendment during the first several weeks
of school and ask for your understanding if
schedules need to be changed during the first
few weeks of school.
We are committed to make high school the
best it can be for our students. We can think of
no greater cause than to help prepare them to
be productive citizens in the competitive world
economy.


Bill Powell, Waldo Community School


There is much excitement around our
school as we prepare for a new school year.
We are really, looking forward to seeing you on
Friday for "Meet the Teacher" from 12:30 p.m.

loves to see students doing good. He will be
helping us earn recognition for good deeds. We
have many great plans and opportunities for
students and families to join us for a wonderful'
year at Waldo.

Federal grant money could save rail line


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS- The City
Commission has formally confirmed
that it is 100 percent behind an ongoing
effort to save the local rail line, and in
turn help to refortify the local business
of a national company.
During an August 12 meeting, High
Springs commissioners unanimously
approved the adoption of a resolution
stating their support for a decision to
apply for TIGER II grant funds to pay
for repairs needed to keep 14 miles of
rail line running through the city open
and operational.
The decision to apply for the grant
money came about through the joint
efforts of the Council for Economic
Outreach at the Gainesville Area
Chamber of Commerce, the Alachua
County Board of Commissioners, High
Springs City Commission and Prime
Conduit; a national corporation with a
facility in the city.
A problem arose when several
months ago, Prime Conduit announced
its intention to select one out of four
of its locations to house a new piece
of manufacturing equipment that
would allow the company to adapt its
production to a more profitable need in
the current market.
The Council for Economic
Outreach orchestrated an agreement
between Prime Conduit and the city of
High Springs to set up a Qualified Tax


Incentive program, which in a nutshell,
gives the company a tax break in return
for guaranteed new jobs, should it bring
the new equipment to High Springs.
From the start, the company
conveyed its intentions of choosing this
city, but there was one very big problem
that no tax break of any type or amount
could make up for.
The Florida Northern Railroad, the
company that owns and operates the
local rail line, notified Prime Conduit
that the line was scheduled to be shut
down because it was not generating
enough revenue for the company to
afford the repairs and upkeep it needed.
This rail line is Prime Conduit's
primary mode of shipping, and if the
rail was leaving, Prime Conduit would
not be expanding in High Springs.
With the rail company open to
possible solutions, the Council for
Economic Outreach has been working
to find funds to fix the rail and
subsequently ensure Prime Conduit's
local expansion.
David Ramsey, the council's senior.
director of economic development,
said, "This is the solution to keeping
the rail line open," referring to the
TIGER II grant. "And that's the way the
application has been crafted," he added.
Short for "Transportation
investment generating economic
recovery," the TIGER II is a federal
department of transportation grapt
awarded on a competitive need basis.


The minimum cost for a project to
qualify it for these funds is usually $10
million.
In the initial consideration of
this option for saving the rail, this
requirement presented a potential
problem. But Ramsey explained the
council looked at ways to bundle this
project with others to then qualify,
and ultimately it was determined that
the application for funding for the rail
would be packaged with the Florida
Department of Transportation's bulk
application.
However, Ramsey pointed out,
because the rail project is considered
to be in rural area, the $10 million
minimum can be waived, which means
that although this application is being
submitted with the bigger DOT one, it
will be considered on its own and could
be approved independent of the rest of
the bundle.
The entire application will be
finalized and submitted in its entirety on
Friday, and Ramsey said he expects to
hear back September 15 at the absolute
earliest. But more likely, he said, there
should be some news by the end of
September.
Meanwhile, ,Prime Conduit is
waiting for the verdict on the rail in
,order to make the official decision
on where its new equipment will be
shipped.

Man breaks into home, attacks ex-girlfriend


By CRAIG COX
Tonday Reporter
ALACHUA A man
was arrested Tuesday
morning after police say
he kicked in two doors and
attacked his ex-girlfriend at
her home in Alachua.
Alfabian Gerwayne
Conner, 29, of Lake City,
allegedly knocked on his
ex-girlfriend's door and
yelled to let him in. When
the victim refused to let
him in, Conner kicked in


the front door, according to
a police report.
The victim attempted to
lock herself in a bedroom,
but Conner also kicked in
that door, according to the
report.
Conner then attacked
the victim, choking,
biting and striking her
several times. Conner also
struck the face of a child
being held by the victim,
according to the report.
Another person that
was in the house went


to assist the victim, but
Conner armed himself
with a butcher knife and
threatened to kill both
victims. The victims were
able to get out of the house
as Conner came after them
with the knife, according to
the report.
Officers J. Horn and
D. Parks arrived at the
scene and took Conner into
custody.
There were three
children, including the
child who was struck in


the face, in the residence
at the time of the incident,
according to the report.
Conner was charged
with armed burglary,
aggravated battery, battery
by strangulation, child
abuse, aggravated assault
and criminal mischief. He
is being held at the Alachua
County Jail on $47,000
bond.

HAWTHORNE
Hawthorne added its name to
the long list of cities fighting
back against a lawsuit
challenging the 'home rule'
amendment slated for the
November ballot.
Archer, LaCrosse,
Micanopy, Waldo and High
Springs have all already
joined the defense started by
Gainesville. And Newberry
and Alachua will vote on the
issue on Aug. 23.
The 'home rule'
amendment is designed
to give more autonomy
to the cities by requiring
that a majority of the city's
residents vote to approve
future charter amendments
before they go in effect in
their respective towns.
Dwight E. Adams,
a University of Florida
professor, is plaintiff in
the lawsuit and will be
represented by Joseph Little.
The lawsuit aims to take the
'home rule' amendment off
the ballot or make it void, if
voted on and adopted.
Half of the legal costs
will be covered by the
Alachua County League of
Cities, and the other have will
be divided among the other
cities, with each city paying
a fee based on population
and Alachua County League
of Cities dues.
If all cities participate,


Gainesville will pay the
most at about $2,088, and
LaCrosse will pay the least at
about $348. Hawthorne will
pay $696.
These figures are based
on the Gainesville attorney's
estimate that the defense will
take 160 hours, charged at
$100 per hour.
Hawthorne approved the
measure quickly with only
one dissenting vote, cast
by Commissioner William
Carlton.
Vice Mayor Matt
Surrency said the cost is
worth joining the other cities
in combating the lawsuit.
"We're trying to improve
the image of Hawthorne,"
Surrency said. "This is one
way to do that."
Carlton said he voted
against the measure because
he was concerned the city
wouldn't have the money to
pay for the lawsuit.
The figure of $696 is only
an estimate. The cost could
go up or down, depending
on the amount of time the
attorney charges fighting the
lawsuit.
City Manager Ed Smyth
said Hawthorne doesn't
have any money budgeted to
pay for the $696 fee for the
current fiscal year, but it's
currently budgeting $10,000
for., attorney fees for the
upcoming fiscal year, which
starts on Oct. 1.

Q: What is a space
maintainer?
A: Baby teeth perform
a variety of functions.
They help a child eat, of
course, and help in early
speech. But their main
role is holding space in the
jaws for the emergence of
permanent teeth, which
start coming in around
age five. But sometimes
a child will lose a baby
tooth prematurely due to
decay or an accident. If left
undressed, that void may
cause other baby teeth to
shift to fill the empty space.
Then, when the permanent
tooth wants to emerge into
is proper place, it may be
cramped. That's not the


way you want a child to
start out.
To address the problem
of a premature baby-tooth
loss, your dentist can install
a space maintainer. It could
be a band or a temporary
crown attached to one side
of the space supporting a
wire loop or bar that holds
the neighboring teeth apart
until the permanent tooth
begins to erupt. When the
permanent tooth begins
to come in, the dentist
removes the place holder
and the tooth should come
in naturally. Talk with your
dentist about ways to get
your kids off to a good start

The case of the missing burger


Detective Laura Snyder, here,
on the case of the missing burger.

Scene: Family picnic, Snyder
residence

Victim: My niece

Suspects: My brother, my
sister-in-law, and a stray dog, cat,
crow, or a really strong
colony of ants. -


Back Story:
On a sunny Sunday
afternoon, my husband
and I hosted a picnic in
our backyard with our
family and friends.
There was
swimming, horseshoes,
and lots of food.
Because the temperature
was in the high 80's,


Laura S


we spent a great deal
of time moving lawn chairs and
following the shade. This peaceful,
if nomadic, picnic was the scene of
a horrendous crime.
My niece, who is going to
community college, has a part-
time job to help pay her expenses.
However, she still lives at home
with my brother and his wife,
which makes them responsible for
her food and board.
My niece had to go to work later
in the day, so her parents promised
to bring her a plate of food from the
picnic for her dinner. Her job was
only about a mile from my house.,
When 5:00 pm rolled around, it
was time to fire up the grill. While
my husband and my brother put
their grilling talents together to
cook some hamburgers and hot


dogs and bum some others I
supervised the setting of the tables
in the garage that would be our
picnic "buffet."
I love it when my family and
friends come to visit because
they all cook better than me. The
variety of salads and desserts was
simply mouth-watering..
All the delicious food did not
distract my brother
and his wife from
their parental duties,
however. They must
get food to their.
daughter.
My sister-in-law
made a hamburger
plate with a selection
"" of choice salads and
desserts and gave
it to my brother for
transport.
;nyder Before he came
back, we received a
phone call from my niece asking
why there was no hamburger in the
bun. She had apparently bit into the
bun and came away with a mouthful
of bread and condiments... but no
burger.
They had somehow lost a burger
between here and there. This did
not make my niece very happy, but
it provided hours of conversation
for the picnic attendees.
We informed my brother of the
missing burger when he arrived
back at the scene, and he carefully
combed the route he took from the
garage to the car. No burger.
He searched his car. No burger.
We speculated on how bad his
car would smell if he somehow
overlooked it.
We hypothesized about how a


burger could have fallen out from
between the bun. We thought
maybe it had fallen on the driveway
and my cat, a stray dog, or an ant
related to Arnold Schwartzenegger
had spirited the burger away.
We theorized that my brother
might have gotten hungry on the
way to deliver the food. He has
been on a diet, after all.
We accused my sister-in-law
of never putting the burger on the
bun in the first place. She denies
it vehemently. So, maybe she's
losing her mind.

' .But if she didn't put the
burger on the bun, the burger
would have been on the burger
tray. There weren't any burgers on
the burger tray.


Hmm....
curiouser.

Officer: No evidence sexual crime occurred


Police stopped Bilus after
observing'a traffic infraction and
found the young girl wearing no
pants in the vehicle, according to
the report.
Bilus and the girl knew
each other's name but acted
suspiciously and offered different
accounts of where they were
going, according to the report.
Bilus later told police that he
had just met the girl online, but
she had told him she was 16 years
old, according to the report.
The girl said Bilus knew she
was younger than that because her
online profile listed a younger age,
and she had informed him of her
age during an online conversation,
according to the report.
Bilus said he had picked the
girl up without the permission of
her parent, but the girl's guardian
later told police that Bilus did


have permission to take the girl,
although the guardian did not
know Bilus, according to the
report.
The arresting officer wrote
in the report that there was no
evidence that a sexual crime had
occurred, although there was an
unused condom in the car.
Bilus was appointed a public
defender and was released on bail.
With the assistance of the
Gainesville Police Department's
Internet Crimes Against Children
(ICAC) unit, additional charges
are expected as this investigation
continues.

Park improved thanks


to Eagle Scout project


STAFF REPORT
Alachua County Today
ALACHUA The wooden bleachers at
the Skinner Park baseball field look as good
as new thanks to Andrew S. Jenkins' Eagle
Scout project.
Jenkins, along with fellow Troop 88 Boy
Scouts, spent the better part of Saturday re-
furbishing the bleachers from which numer-
ous ballgames are watched every year. Jen-
kins also constructed two additional smaller
benches near the field.
"I think it turned out pretty well. I like
the finished project and I think it will benefit
my community for years to come," he said.
While the crew put in dozens of man-
hours collectively on Saturday, Jenkins, just
16 years old, says he spent about 56 hours in
pre-planning for the project. The project is
just one requirement that Jenkins must meet
to earn the rank of Eagle, Boy Scouting's
highest honor.
"There is a lot more paper work yet to go
and additional presentations to make to the
Eagle Review Board," said Jenkins.
The llth grade Santa Fe High School
student is well on his way to reaching the
Eagle Rank with 31 merit badges already
completed, 12 of which are required. Addi-
tional merit badges earned beyond his Eagle
rank will be credited toward Eagle Palms,
an award distinguishing Eagle Scouts for
their ongoing commitment and involvement
in scouting.

DISTRICT 1

Felecia F. Moss
T he School Board is responsible for the organization
and control of the public schools of Alachua
County. Over the past several decades, we have had
a national, state and local outcry for improved schooling
for all children. I have extensive experience working in
schools, working with parents, working with communities,
and working with issues related to the pressing issues that
face our schools today.
My teaching experience, my leadership training and
experience as a principal, as well as my extensive work
at the university level in education has prepared me to

have first hand experience dealing with issues that face parents, students, teachers, staff,
administrators and communities as it relates to educating students.



DISTRICT 3

Gunnar Paulson
I am a candidate for the School Board District 3. It has
been my privilege to have served our school district in
various capacities since 1970.
These are perilous times for public schools. Taxpayers
deserve someone who knows what is at stake and who is
experienced in the strategies that will preserve our precious
birthright a public education. I stand for fiscal discipline,
local control of our schools, career-technical education
and robust funding for the arts. I am a person who has the
experience, strength and vision to the meet the challenges
ahead. -.

priorities. Tax money comes from you afil time and time

though was the warmth our community
showed to the other teams. I personally
think we showed everyone what Alachua

Brady said the visitors and World

the amount of work Alachua put into its
recreation center.
"They thought this was the best venue
they could have picked for the World

amazing we put all this out for the girls,

In recent months, the city renovated
Alachua's Hal Brady Recreation Center,
including everything from paving the
parking lot to adding new fencing, in
anticipation of the tournament, which was
expected to bring in millions of dollars for
the local economy.
To host the tournament, cities must pay
$40,000 on top of other preparation costs.
The costs are actually the responsibility of
the host organization, which is the Santa Fe
Babe Ruth program.
However, the City of Alachua,
the Alachua Chamber of Commerce,
the Gainesville Sports Commission,

provided financial and in-kind support for

3. Pay close attention to
school buses. Remember,
when a school bus stops
and turns on its flashing
lights and extends it signs,
you must also stop unless
there is an unpaved median

barrier separating your
vehicle from the stopped
school bus.
4. Remember to slow down


through school zones.
Pay close attention to the
crossing guards at those
intersections.
5. Children should always be
instructed to catch the eye
and attention of the bus
driver when walking in
front of the school bus.
Sheriff's deputies will be
monitoring many of the school
zones and associated traffic
corridors during the first few
weeks of school. Citation


amounts can vary from $104
for a non-moving citation, to
$154 for a moving violation.
Fines start at $119 and can
exceed $594 for speeding
through a school zone.
Citations for passing a stopped
school bus are $259. Deputies
would like to remind everyone
that running a red light will
cost you $252.
By working together, we
can all help make this a safe
and happy school year.

Miracles do happen


The miracles of the Lord are often told so far out
of context that they become nothing but a Christian
history lesson. We tend to forget that these stories were
written in Holy Scripture for our benefit, to instruct us
in the Faith and to influence our lives.
Christians learn from Scripture, when
we allow it to speak for itself, entering our
hearts by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
The Gospel of Saint Mark 7:31, helps us to
understand, by the telling of a miraculous
healing that Jesus performed.
First, look at some general things about
the healing of this deaf and dumb man. It
took place in Decapolis, a large area south
of the Sea of Galilee, populated mainly by
Gentiles. These were the people outside of
the Covenant with God; people whom the THE VEN
Jews believed unworthy of God's grace. LEAE
If God had selected only the Children of All Saints
Abraham to be worthy' of salvation, the Church, G
Son of God would never have set foot A paris
in this place of Gentiles... but He did. Christian
God doesn't discriminate in His offer of
Salvation and neither should we.
But we learn something more about God's grace
in this healing event as we consider that Christ had
passed through Decapolis before. In chapter 5 of
his Gospel, Saint Mark wrote about Christ meeting a
demoniac in this area.
A great miracle had occurred the last time Jesus
passed by, perhaps no more than 30 miles away from
where He had healed the deaf and dumb man. After
Jesus drove the demons from the man, the community
begged Him to leave. The Scriptures teach -that they

were never graced by Christ's presence again. It's either
a glorious thing to be in the presence of Christ (as it was
for the man who was set free) or it's a fearful thing (as
it was for the people of the area). Nevertheless, Christ
came to Decapolis again but didn't go through the
part where He was rejected. How tragic to
witness the grace of God, and then to reject
coming to a personal knowledge of Him.
And so on their day of visitation, Jesus
came and left with only one follower-a
former demoniiac.
But when Jesps .came to Decapolis,
there were crowds waiting for Him when
He arrived. St. Matthew puts it this way,
"15:30 And great crowds came to him,
bringing with them the lame, the maimed,
JOHN E. the blind, the dumb, and many others, and
URE they put them at his feet, and he healed
Anglican them..." But St. Mark highlights the
inesville. healing of this one man.
of the The Scriptures say that "they bring
episcopal unto Him... and beseech Him to put His
c hand upon him." So, this man didn't
come of his own initiative, which gives
an important lesson in evangelism. Our friends, co-
workers, or relatives in need of Christ might never
come to Him if we do not initiate the invitation.
Having taken the man aside, Jesus heals him in
a most extraordinary way. Putting His fingers into
the man's ears; and taking spit and touching the
man's tongue, Jesus looked up, sighed, and said "be
opened." This is a great lesson in communication,
symbolism and love, in the working of God's grace.
This man was deaf, so he couldn't hear anything Jesus
was saying and also being tongue-tied he could not
outwardly communicate with Jesus. The touch to
the ear and the spit to the tongue are natural ways of
Christ's expressing compassion for the man. Jesus
simply could have said a word and the man would be
healed, but His compassion to communicate with this
man demanded more. And He looked up-this simple


action alone would teach the man to look to God foi
healing.
So, we see the usefulness of symbolism tc
communicate the grace of God. It was not the
symbolic act alone that healed the man, and neither is
it the symbols we use in Church on which we should
rest our Faith. But we mustn't think too lightly aboul
these things either. The ritual and gestures we use in
our worship are useful in demonstrating our love ol
God.
Just as Jesus came to Decapolis and blessed those
who came to Him in Faith, so I tell you He is present
among us today. We have a*choice. We can be like
those who feared Jesus and begged Him to leave oi
we can be like those who brought their needs to Him
and went away praising God. We, too, must make a
choice to know Him or reject Him, and so I urge you
to bring Him all of your needs. Trust Him. He loves
us. I pray that God would use the Apostles' words and
the symbolism, gestures, and ritual to open our eyes.
ears and mouths that we may see Him and praise His
Holy Name.

Your one trusted financial partner
A message from the sponsor: Parents interested in
teaching their kids about finances will find an array of
financial literacy resources available at www.sunstatefcu.
org. SunState Federal Credit Union has financial
literacy modules and more for children of all ages and
adults too. Many of the tools for children are fun to work


In the spring of 1808, a press is unloaded from a
keelboat on the Mississippi riverfront, beginning a
new page in history as a pioneer newspaper begins
the westward expansion of words.
Meet 12-year-old Gabe Martin, a boy forced to
step into adult shoes when his family falls on hard
times. A chance encounter on that muddy riverfront
gives Gabe the opportunity to lend a hand to a
printer's efforts "Pressing West."
