Officer's husband wants answers


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS It's been over
a year since High Springs police
officer Michelle Jones, formerly
Michelle Kemp, filed a formal written
complaint against Chief of Police Jim
Troiano.
The file for the Aug. 3, 2009
complaint is still open, and any
investigation that was initiated has yet


to be officially closed.
Alachua County Sheriff's Deputy
Brandon Jones, Michelle's husband,
explained that because her complaint
is still active and open, she is not at
liberty to discuss the issue, which is
why he spoke on his wife's behalf at
an Aug. 12 city commission meeting.
When the commission opened the
floor for citizen comments pertaining
to items not on the agenda, Brandon


Jones came forward, explaining
wanted to make the commission
aware of the lack of adequate action
taken about his wife's complaint.
Mayor Bill Coughlin and City
Manager Jim Drumm urged Jones to
hold off on addressing the commission
with all the details, asking him first
to meet with Drumm to discuss the

Students, schools cope with new uniform policy

4^': I '*


BRYAN BOUKARI/Alachua County Today
Monday spelled back to school for area students as summer vacation drew to a close. New this year is the
county's public school uniform policy which requires polo shirts, khaki pants and shorts, solid color jeans and
school sponsored t-shirts.


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA COUNTY Students
were back to the books Monday
morning, kicking off a new school
year after one 'of the hottest summers
in the record books.
There were the usual traffic
congestion issues, students having
trouble finding their first class and
hugs and high fives as they reunited


with their friends. Unlike the usual
start to school years in Alachua
County, however, this first day was a
bit different as the students donned a
new look to comply with a new rule.
At the end of the last school year,
the School Board of Alachua County
(SBAC) implemented a public
school uniform policy. The highly
contentious discussion of uniforms
has been making its way around


School Board meetings for years. But
this time it made its way all the way
into the rule book, allowing students
to only wear certain types of clothing
that fall under the uniform policy.
The decision to implement the policy
was met with. both supporters and
opposition, but ultimately the new
dress code was instituted.

By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA After
lengthy discussion
among City of Alachua
commissioners and
residents Monday night,
the Commission voted to
increase the .city's water
and wastewater rates. The
new rates are the same rates
that took effect in April
earlier this year, but due to


a public notice error, those
rates were deemed void.
The city has' since adjusted
customer accounts to reflect
the voided rates. Monday
night, by a vote of 4-1,
with Commissioner Robert
Wilford dissenting, the rates
were officially adjusted and
will take effect in the first
bills in September.
Wilford explained he
did not feel the process
was done as it should have
been to raise the rates, and
although he voted for the
increase at the first hearing
on Aug. 9, he did not
support the increase at the
final hearing.

Budget cuts no


easy task for High


Springs Commission


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -After
two nights of debate ended
in a standoff between High
Springs city commissioners
unwilling to budge from
their respective platforms,
a motion was finally passed
for first approval of a draft
budget for the 2010-2011
fiscal year, despite the
failure to reach a unanimous
consensus.
During the Aug. 23
meeting Monday night,
Commissioner Eric May


introduced a controversial
proposal to amend the
budget to cut the positions
of both police and fire
chief and combine the two.

management of a single
public safety director,
which would then operate
under two subdivisions,
with a captain overseeing
the fire-rescue division and
a lieutenant overseeing the
police division.

Cities collaborate to keep charter amendment on ballot


By GLENN C'OINE
7'hnl R,7ort'cr
GAINESVILLr: With the support of
eight other municipalities, the Gainesville
city attorney's ollice has filed a motion
to intervene in the lawsuit against the
"municipal home rule" county charter
amendment slated for placement on the
November ballot.
Alachua, Archer, I lawthorne, High
Springs, LaCrosse, Micanopy, Newberry
and Waldo have all agreed to join
Gainesville 'in its cause to argue the
constitutionality of the proposed county
charter amendment 3, which is being
contested by a lawsuit filed July 13 by
Joe Little, the attorney representing the
plaintiff, retired University of Florida
physics professor Dwight Adams.
Little was a member of the county
charter review commission who voted
against recommending that the amendment
be placed on the November ballot. However
he was in the minority, and the review
commission's final recommendation was
to place it on the ballot for citizens to vote
on it.
The lawsuit claims that the amendment
would be in violation of Florida's state
constitution, and furthermore seeks to
withhold it from the ballot. Should it not
be withheld from the ballot, the lawsuit
seeks to have the election results withheld
if a court rules that the amendment would
in fact be unconstitutional.
The Alachua County attorney, who
will be representing the board of county
commissioners and the county supervisor
of elections as the defendants in the case,
was instructed by the commission to remain


neutral on the issue of constitutionality,
and only defend the decision to put the
item on the ballot based on the fact that
it was the recommendation of the charter
review commission to do so.
For this reason, the City of Gainesville
sought to intervene in order to provide
representation for support of the
constitutionality of amendment 3.
The amendment, if approved, would
require that in the case of any future charter
amendment which would limit the power
of a municipality, the amendment' must
receive a majority vote county wide and
must also receive a majority' vote within
the affected municipality in order for it to
take effect.
In theory, this could exercise limits
on county government, but it would not
expand a city government's power, but
rather the power of the voters.
Gainesville city attorney Marion
Radson said there is a hearing scheduled
Sept. 1 to decide whether to allow the team
of cities to intervene.
In a memorandum from the Alachua
County League of Cities to the High
Springs City Commission, asking for the
city's participation in the constitutional
defense, it was stated that the county
supervisor of elections indicated Sept. 2 as
the final deadline for items to be placed on
the ballot for November, and at this point
the supervisor of elections would not want
to withhold the results.
Radson. clarified that the request made
by .the plaintiff to seal or withhold ballot
results would be in the case that the court
ruled against the constitutionality of the
amendment, because at that point it would
be too late to simply remove it from the


ballot.
The lawsuit contests that amendment 3
would "restrict the constitutional authority
of the electors of Alachua County to adopt
an amendment to the Home Rule Charter of
Alachua County that would cause a county
ordinance to prevail over a conflicting
municipal ordinance in a municipality in
which the electors voted against such an
amendment."
In a more basic sense, the plaintiff is
arguing that because the state constitution
allocates the county charter as the ultimate
authority in the event of a conflict between
county and municipal ordinances, allowing
a municipal vote to be the deciding factor
in a change to that charter would be self-
contradictory.
The defense set up by Gainesville
and its eight, constituent cities will, if
allowed to intervene in the case, argue
that the municipal home rule amendment
does not, in fact, violate the Florida state
constitution, explained Radson.
The priority is to leave this amendment
for voters to decide, as the charter review
commission recommended. Radson
pointed out that the review commission
was appointed for the purpose of debating
which charter amendments should be
placed on this year's ballot, and the 15
members spent many hours over several
months researching, discussing and
listening to public input on the topics.
According to the charter review
commission's final report, the final vote
was 9 to 5 in favor of placing amendment 3
on the ballot. At least 8 votes in favor were
required to move any amendment forward.
According to the Alachua County
League of Cities, two other Florida


counties are known to have adopted
similar, comparable amendments to their
respective charters, and each continues to
operate with said amendments in place.
In 2006, Pinellas County voted on a
proposal to abolish a requirement already
established in the charter that calls for
a dual vote, countywide and within a
municipality, to pass amendments limiting
a municipality's power. The proposal
was voted down, and the county retained
this policy, which is similar to the one in
question now in Alachua County.
In 2008, Palm Beach County voted in
favor of a home rule charter amendment
requiring this type of dual vote as well.
Radson explained that depending
on the implications and scope of other
rulings throughout the state on this sort of
amendment, these other cases may or may
not set a relevant legal precedent for this
instance.
If a circuit court has ruled on an issue, it
is .not automatically binding for the rest of
the state to adhere to the precedent set forth
by that ruling. It is only binding within the
given judicial circuit. However, if a district
court, otherwise known as an appellate
court, rules on an issue, that decision must
be followed in all other comparable cases
statewide.
Assuming no parties hold any issues in
dispute, Radson said it would be reasonable
to assume that this lawsuit can go to court
fairly quickly, and a final judgment could
be reached before the Nov. 2 election, but
there is no guarantee.

Donations keep Newberry fireworks show alive


By ALEX AUSTIN
To7by Reporter
NEWBERRY Multiple
individual and business donors
vowed at Monday's commission
meeting to chip in to support the
city's Labor Day fireworks show,
helping to pay for the annual
event sponsored and' organized
by Rocky Volgio, owner of
Newberry Backyard BBQ.
Last year, the city donated
$2,500, and Volgio came to the
commission meeting Monday
asking for the city to match last
year's donation to help reduce the


total event cost of $10,000.
However, the consensus of
the commission was that in a tight
budget year, $2,500 was too steep
a price.
With the city hesitant to pay
the entire $2,500, individual
donors stepped up to make close
the gap.
Commissioner Joe Hoffman
agreed to donate $200, and
Newberry resident Lee Gates
quickly agreed to match the
donation. FellowCommissionBill
Conrad and City Manager Keith
Ashby each agreed to pay $100.


Daba Design Works, Newberry
Main Street Organization, Folds
and Walker Attorneys at Law and
Paul Stressing Associates Inc. all
agreed to chip in $250 each.
After a number of individual
donations, the city agreed to $500
-pushing the total to $2,100.
Before the city approved its
donation, Hoffinan joked about
the telethon-like atmosphere that
had surfaced at the meeting.
"I think we ought to just keep
on talking. We seem to be gaining
momentum here; We ought to
have a call-in or hotline," he said.


A few Newberry residents
spoke at the meeting about how
important the event' is to the
community.
Newberry resident Police
Sgt. Jayson Levy of the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office, said
keeping the event alive was
important to bring people together
and lift the town's spirits. He
said the event always gets a big
turnout and is one of the few local
events that everyone can be a part
of.
Joy Glanzer, a member
of the Newberry Chamber of


Commerce, agreed.
"You can't put a price on
goodwill," Glanzer said.
Conrad said he was glad the
event would continue and happy
to have the partnership with
Volgio in a time when many cities
have had to close down fireworks
shows.
The event is scheduled for
Sept. 5 at dusk.

Alachua County challenging


class-size penalties


By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
ALACHUA COUNTY -
The Alachua School Board
voted .4-0 Tuesday to take
part in a lawsuit challenging
penalties on class-size limits.
The penalties could cost the
county up to $3,000 for every
student that exceeds the state-"
mandated limit.
The class-size limits vary
based on grade: 18 for grades
K-3, 22 for grades 4-8 and 25
for grades 9-12.
Alachua will spend $1,500
in attorney fees to join other
school districts in the lawsuit
initiated by the Florida School
Boards Association.
While the lawsuit works
its way to the courts, the first
day of school is less than a
week away and the school
board is strategizing on ways
to best take on the challenge of
meeting such strict limits.
At the public hearing
Tuesday, Deputy
Superintendent Sandy
Hollinger broke down the
strategies by grade level.
For elementary schools, a
key strategy will be combining
classes.
"In looking at the active
enrollment figures today, I
can tell we will be having
combination classes in all
of our elementary schools,"
Hollinger said.
High schools have an
added level of complexity
with advanced placement and
honors classes. Hollinger said
for some of these classes,
taking the penalty is the
preferred option Over capping
classes at the cutoff mark of
25, leaving some students out
of upper-level classes.
She said a principal recently
told her that one of the schools
Algebra honors classes had
27 students enrolled. In that
situation, the school district
would pay for the extra two
students.
"We will be taking some


penalties," Hollinger said.
"We're trying to make that
very few."
The school district also
faces the balancing act of hiring
new teachers to lower the class
sizes, paying the penalty for
class-size overflow and asking
teachers to take on more duties.
One strategy suggested
was that high school teachers
be asked to teach six of six
available periods, instead of
five.
Another impact of the
class-size mandates is that
the school district has had to
become more rigid on zoning
exceptions.
"We cannot do what we
have done in the past, which is
basically been fairly liberal in
our school choice," Hollinger
said.
"We are now having to say
that if a school is at 89 to 90
percent at capacity, we cannot
grant zoning exceptions until
after school starts. It will
probably take us about two
weeks to see where the classes
are and if partial units or full
units at an elementary school
would need to be added."
One parent, William Shaw,
spoke at the public hearing.
He lives in Windsor, and his
son is zoned for Hawthorne.
Shaw said he has been trying
to get his son into Gainesville
High School or Buchholz High
School.
Shaw was advised to
register His son for the school
he is zoned for and wait to see
how the first couple of weeks
of school shake out.
"This. is something that
is very challenging, that's
going to be quite difficult,"
Hollinger said. "We want to
do it with minimal disruption
to students and to our teachers.
Unfortunately, we'll just have
to see until the first week of
school where we are."

Hawthorne contracts with


county fo:
By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter


HAWTHORNE Hawthorne
agreed to contract with the Alachua
County Department of Growth
Management for a year's worth of
planning services, costing the city
$27,500.
The county has been working
with the city ever since the city
planner, Kelly Moosbrugger, quit
in the spring.
City Manager Ed Smyth said
the new agreement is about $12,500
less than the city would-have to pay
to hire a full-time city planner.
Smyth said the city does not
have enough work for a full-time
planner and that it's more cost
effective to hire the county for the
four hours per week as spelled out
in the contract.
He said Moosbrugger did


r planning
city planning for about a day and
a half per week and spent two
days working for the Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA).
Smyth said he doesn't want the city
to pay the entire salary for a new
city planner, if the CRA is getting
most of the benefit..
Commissioners were hesitant
to sign a yearlong contract with the
county but agreed to the deal, given
that the contract can be terminated
at any time with 30 days notice.
The commission approved
the measure by a 3-2 vote, with
commissioners William Carlton
and DeLoris Roberts voting against


"What we had worked,"
Roberts said.
She proposed working with
the county for six months and
then hiring a University of Florida
intern.


services
Two citizens, Danielle Catanese
and Heather Surrency, also spoke
in favor of hiring an intern or full-
time city planner.
Catanese said she has worked
with the county and former City
Planner Moosbrugger and said
Moosbrugger had a much better
grasp of the local issues, was more
personable, had a hire quality of
work and was easier to work with.
Smyth said even though the
contract was approved, the city will
still look into hiring a UF graduate
student down the road to intern
with" the city for about $11 to $12
per hour.
An interlocal agreement with
the county must be formalized to
finalize the contract.

Relationships- crazy


So I found myself in the
self-improvement section
of a bookstore. If I was
honest with myself, I'd have
to say that I wasn't there to
improve myself, I was.there
to find something that would
improve everyone else.
In today's world women
have been led to believe
that we are always right, so
what is there
to improve?
Of course, we
were lead, to
believe this by
other women.
Men would not
agree, but smart
men w,,uldn't
say so because
they like to have
sex. The surest
way to go to bed
alone is to say Laura S
or even suggest
that a woman was not right.
So perhaps women are right
because men are smart. -
In the bookstore, I found a
book that caught my attention
because it had a comic strip
on the front that was done in
primary colors. Okay, so I'm
a little shallow... but I'm still
right.
This book was called
Women Are Crazy, Men Are
Stupid. It was written not by
an "expert" in relationships
that had a bazillion unrelated
letters after his name, but a
couple of comedy writers.
One of them, Howard J.
Morris was a writer for
the popular series "Home
Improvements." The other,
Jenny Lee was a writer on
"Samantha Who?"
I thought, "Now this is an
interesting take on the whole
gender wars thing."
I picked up the book
because I agreed with the
title... and because of the
pretty colors. I opened it
because I saw that it was
written by a man and a


woman. That meant I would
hear both sides of the story.
Ultimately, I bought the
book after looking inside. I
wanted to see how many
times the words "crazy"
and '"stupid" could be used
without offending the reader,
I found that 'the answer
was incalculable as long
as the insult was couched
in humor. "I

S"They are

nyder Ph.D.s trying to
nyder bridge the gap.
They are not
telling us what we are doing
wrong and how we can fix
it. They are simply telling
it like it is. You really-can't.
change it. All you can do is
understand it and try to work
the crazy and stupid out.
After 29 years of contractual
committed-ness with my
husband, I may finally
understand. Understanding is
good. Understanding at least
eases murderous thoughts
and suicidal tendencies.
Here's the kicker: Morris
and Lee are not married.
There had been no "I do"
in front of a witness, but
they are in a "committed
relationship." Not committed
as in "institutionalized", but
committed as in a voluntary
prison... uh, partnership.
Since these two authors
didn't want to risk a marriage
contract with each other, at
least not yet, it must help
to know that you can walk
away at any time without
e-'lsequence. That certainly
would raise a couple's chances
of making that "till I get sick


and stupid

of you" goal. They've made
it two years already, which is
nothing short of a miracle...
in Hollywood.
Contracts put your
collateral on the line. There
is risk. In my humble
opinion, if you are not willing
to risk everything for the one
you love, maybe you are not
committed enough. In which
case, you should not even be
thinking about a "committed
relationship."
On the other hand, some
people only want what they
can't have. Once they have
it, lock, stock and barrel, they
don't want it anymore. If
you recognize that aspect of
your -partner's personality,'
not marrying them is a savvy
relationship strategy. A little
therapy for both of you may
go a long way, in this case.
There are also those
people who don't want to be
with a person who is "forced"
to be with them because of
a signed contract. They will
always wonder if their spouse
really wants to be with them
or is just staying with them
because of that little piece
of paper. Judging from the
divorce rate in this country,
that little piece of paper has
not stopped anyone from
leaving someone they believe
is a loser.
These scenarios
demonstrate that people in
love can be both crazy and
stupid. That is the simple
point Morris and Lee are

Troops Are Hamstrung
General Stanley McChrystal was
replaced by General David Petraeus
because of insubordination expressed-
by General McChrystal's staff to a
"Rolling Stone" reporter.
Although extremely poor judgment
was exhibited by McChrystal and his
staff in giving the interviews, it appears
there is sufficient disagreement
between our military in Afghanistan
and the Obama Administration on the
conduct of the war and the strategic-
decisions handed down by the White
House.
The rules of engagement forced
on our troops in Afghanistan appear
to inhibit their ability to, conduct'
successful operations in pursuit
of the Taliban and other terrorist
organizations. As Jack Kelly, a former
Marine and Green Beret stated in
MilitarN, August 2010. our soldiers are
encumbered "b) bizarrely restrictive
rules of engagement which make, it
easier for the enemy to kill them;
harder for them to kill the enemy".
President Obama shifted the
strategic advantage to the Taliban and
their supporters when he announced
to the enemy the deadline for starting
the withdrawal of our troops will be
July 2011. This announcement gave
the Taliban a boost in morale, and
the strategic knowledge that if they
could hold out to the middle of next
year, U.S. troops will be leaving
Afghanistan. The Taliban can then be
in a better position to launch attacks
and try to bring. down the Karzai
government.
As Jack Kelly stated, the Obama
Administration has to "rewrite the
rules of engagement and drop the
deadline for troop withdrawal".

Officer firing unjustified
A story in another newspaper
about the police lieutenant that was
fired from his job over the shooting
of Kofi Adu-Brempong is upsetting to
me as a taxpayer. It seems to me that
everyone is blaming the Lieutenant,
when in fact, the one to blame is
Mr. Brempong. Mr. Brempong was
ordered to put down the steel table


leg and failed to do so. He could have
complied and I'm sure no force would
have been used. I know that it's big
business educating foreign students,
but they must comply with our laws
and obey our officials. Charges
should have been pursued against
Mr. Brempong. To not hold him
accountable is to open the door for a
lawsuit that the taxpayers will have to
pay.
The police chief said in justifying
her firing of Lt. Stacy Ettel that his
was not the squad that should have
handled the disturbance. Was the
Lieutenant and his squad dispatched
: there? When a person has to make
decisions in a c Tsis all the infonnation
is not alwa\s-'aallable until later. The
State Attorney's office did not pursue
charges against any of the other
officers, finding they weree legally
justified in their use of force,
What a joy it must -be to work
for Police Chief Stump. Whatever
happened to supporting your officers?
If I were an officer under her, I would
be looking for somewhere to go,
before I had tomake a controversial
decision. Shame on you, Chief!
The union says the Lieutenant was
used as a sacrificial lamb. I believe
this is true, and I call on all citizens to
stand up for our officers, and support
them. Lieutenant Ettel should appeal
this and fight it to the bitter end.

ontinedfrompageAl IS former senator and once ran for governor


mate, Smith said, "Florida has too much riding on this next
election to continue the path we've been on."
About Tuesday's victory, Smith said, "I couldn't be
more excited. Alex Sink has" been in politics only a little
while. She spent over 20 years in the private sector with
a successful career in finance and she has exactly what we
need.
"Part of my role, of course, will be to campaign all over
north Florida and be sure people know we have a ticket
that is strong on the economy, law enforcement...and a
ticket that is directly in line with mainstream Floridians,"
he said.
Smith said what he brings to the campaign is a face for
north Florida. That he said, "should excite -orth Florida
that they have someone on the ticket.
The issues Smith said he hopes to shed light on are some


which are critical to this region's economy including the
University of Florida, Department of Corrections, Shands
Hospital and the economic development of Jacksonville.
Perhaps most important to folks living along Florida's gulf
coast, Smith said he also intends to keep attention focused
on cleanup of the oil spill from BP's Deepwater Horizon
drilling rig.
Smith was raised on a family farm in South Florida,
graduated from public schools in Palm Beach County and
worked his way through college, earning his law degree
from the University of Florida, and served nearly 20 years
as a labor lawyer. Smith was elected State Attorney for
the Eighth Judicial Circuit in 1992. He garnered national
recognition for his successful prosecution of Gainesville
serial killer Danny Rolling on charges of first-degree
murder for the slaying of five college students.


In 2000 Smith ran for and won a seat in the Florida
State Senate. In 2006 he ran in Florida's Democratic
gubernatorial primary, eventually losing the nomination to
U.S. Representative Jim Davis.
Smith practices law at the Gainesville firm of Avera
and Smith and has served as an adjunct professor at the
University of Florida College of Law. He and his wife,
DeeDee, an attorney and advocate for child abuse victims,
live on their farm in Alachua. They have three children
and two grandchildren.
"Alachua has always treated DeeDee, my family
and me wonderfully, and we're looking forward to
campaigning with everyone again," Smith said.

H Citi object to merging police and fire departments
Continued from page AlI Citizensobec tomegn police an ire departments


fire positions that had
previously been cut would
be reinstated in the budget.
This proposal, in its
entirety, was approved with
a 3 to 2 vote on Monday.
Commissioners Eric May,
Dean Davis and John Hill
voted in favor of it, while
Commissioner Larry Travis
and Mayor Bill Coughlin
were in dissent.
In the original budget
proposal presented to
the commission by City
Manager Jim Drumm, a
janitorial maintenance
position was cut, and a
facilities worker position
was changed to seasonal
rather than year-round.
The commission
had- since reinstated the
maintenance position and
restored the facility worker
position to year-round in
the budget..
During the Monday
meeting, Commissioner
May proposed to once
again eliminate the
maintenance position and
cut the facility worker
position back to seasonal,
while reapportioning those
funds to reinstate a full-time
police officer position that
had been cut. This motion
also 'passed with a 3 to 2
vote, this time with May,
Travis and Hill in favor
and Davis and Coughlin in
dissent.
Another motion was
passed to cut the director of
public works position and
split the department into
two divisions to be headed
by two superintendent
positions, one of which the
city manager had originally
proposed to cut.
Tuesday night, the
commission continued
where it left off in its tug-
of-war over which city
positions to save. The
meeting started at the
High Springs garden club,
because City Hall was


occupied.
There was little room
and even less air circulating
in the small room full of
residents eager for their
turn to speak. Less than half
an hour into it, however, the
mayor received news that
the regular City Hall venue
had opened up, 20-minute
recess was declared.
Despite the relief of
central air conditioning,
the debate only grew more
heated after the meeting
reconvened. When the
floor was opened for public
input, about 14 residents
offered comments, .an
overwhelming majority
of which focused on
protesting the cuts of the
police and fire chiefs and
subsequent merging of the
two departments under one
public safety director.
One resident said he had
been getting phone calls all
day from people "freaking
out" over what they heard
B f14MEMS


had happened at Monday's
meeting.
Even among those who
said they did not necessarily
think it was a bad idea,
there was a consensus that
such a decision should
only be made on the basis
of 'extensive research and
discussion, rather than
committing to it in the
budget after only two nights
of debate since its proposal.
In the attempt to gain
preliminary approval of the
budget, with the concern
in mind of notifying city
employees sooner rather
than later whether their jobs
will be cut, commissioners
eventually began to make
motions to adopt specified
versions of the draft.
Following one
failed motion and
more back and forth
between commissioners,
commissioner Larry Travis
moved to approve the draft
budget including the police


and fire chief positions,
cutting the tw6 part time
fire positions, reinstating
the maintenance worker
and restoring the facility
worker position to year
round, while cutting the
full time police position,
retaining the public works
department under one
director position and cutting
one of the two public works
superintendent positions.
The motion to approve
the budget draft with these
changes passed 4 to 1,
with commissioner May in
dissent. He said he could
not support this version
because it cuts out the full
time police officer position,
which he said is one of his
priorities to maintain.
On another note,
Mayor Coughlin stated
that the commission would
continue to try to find a way
to add the public works
superintendent position
back in if at all possible.


Available Fridays 7am 5pm at the Leveda Brown
Environmental Park and Transfer Station located .':
at 5115 NE 63rd Avenue off Waldo Road I


Drumm later said that
the commission is looking
at reinstating the second
superintendent at least as a
part-time position. And on
Tuesday, they opted to take
$18,000 from cemetery
reserve funds and move it
to the general fund, where
money could then be re-
apportioned appropriately
to pay for cemetery costs
and for the second public
works superintendent.


Thenextbudgetmeeting
is scheduled for Aug. 30,
followed by another Sept.
2. The final budget meeting
is scheduled for Septe.
27, which is when the
commission will take a vote
to approve the final 2010-
2011 fiscal year budget.

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

Nitrous oxide


Q: What is nitrous oxide
and what does it do?
A: Nitrous oxide is
a gas that is a compound
of nitrogen and oxygen.
Dentists use it as a sedative
or anti-anxiety agent. The
gas is administered through
a nose mask and is safe for
use on patients of any age.
Nitrous oxide falls into
the category of a "conscious
sedation," meaning the
patient is awake while under
the effects of the gas and can
respond to questions and
instruction from the dentist.
It's known colloquially as
"laughing gas" because
the gas can put a patient
in a giddy, even euphoric
mood while the dental


procedure goes on. The
gas makes whatever pain
my be associated with the
procedure more bearable,
and can make time seem
to pass more quickly. The
gas was first used in a
dental procedure a tooth
extraction in 1844 by a
Connecticut dentist, Horace
Wells.
Today, nitrous oxide is
the most common sedative
that dentists use. Among
its other benefits are that it
wears off quickly and has
few unpleasant side effects.
Talk with your dentist about
nitrous oxide and about
other techniques he has for
making dental procedures
comfortable.

ontinuedompageA] In-house legal department would cost city $166,000 hri f Cpntrf l1l ini


"
I certain already e


increase," said Wilford. "I disagree with the
process. I believe we could have waited another
month to do this.
"I think we could have prorated the rates over
three or four months and for that reason, I vote
no," Wilford said as he cast the only dissenting
vote.
Apparently referring to Wilford's dissenting
vote, Commissioner Ben Boukari, Jr. s aid
turning down the increases would be fiscally
irresponsible.
"It's very easy to say 'no' on an issue like
this," Boukari said. "It's also irresponsible, in my
opinion. It's not right for this community going
forward. It'sdoing what has continued to be done
in the past.. .I'm going to do what'sright for the
taxpayers and for the future," Boukari said.
The city had not raised its rates for these
services since 1994 and tapping into savings or
borrowing from the Electric Fund appear to no
longer be an option. City of Alachua Public
Services Director Mike New stated that if the
rates were not adjusted, the city would likely have
adrop in the level of service and have no capital
funds on hand if major repair arose.
LongtimeAlachua resident Thelma Hammond
told the Commission she has a separate meter for
irrigation, but even that is costing her too much
for water. .
"I blew up the last two months when I got my
water bill," Hammond said.
Under the new water rates, Hammond said
she received an early $200 bill for water usage
over ap period of two months.
Hammond has an irrigation meter, which is
intended to reduce the cost of outside watering
because she doesn't pay for wastewater on any
water running through that meter. T hat's feature
she initially paid $400 for in hopes of recovering
the cost in reduced water fees.
"I catch rainwater. I use rainwater. I 'm avery
conservative person.
"I do. want my flowers. I d on't do much
watering of the grass, but I do water my flowers
because Il ove my flowers.
"I just .can't a afford it, so I'll just have [my
irrigation meter] cut off," Hammond said. i
The city appears to be seeing a savings this
year in its legal expenses. A according to report
provided to the Commission, general leghl
expenses from City Attorney Marian Rush of the
law firm Rush & Glassman have dropped from an
average of $24,000 per month in 2008 to $10,000
per month in 2010. The report also stated that

the cost for an in-house Iegal department would
cost the city $166,000p er year. T his would be for
general legal services and would not necessarily
include litigation services or the cost to set up
the in-house department such as computers and
desks. Also, the $166,000 per year does not
include operating expenses such as training,
travel, memberships or office supplies.
The current contract with Rush expires at
the end of September. R ush explained that the
higher costs associated with general services for
previous years was related to reviewing major
projects and bringing the city up to speed on
statutory provisions. The contract presented
to the Commission Monday night provided for
a$ 10,000 monthly retainer fee for all general
services. These services include attending
meetings, ordinance review, contract negotiations
and review and responding to staff inquiries.
Rush also reduced her hourly rate for services
outside of the retainer scope from $185 per hour
to $175 per hour.
Commissioners voted 4-1 to renew the
contract with Rush &Glassman for aterm of two
years, citing the decrease in expenses from Rush
and the higher costs associated with having an in-
house attorney. W ilford was the dissenting vote,
stating he wanted to have more time to perform
his own research on the costs for a fulltime city
attorney.
The City Commission also recognized the
Santa Fe Babe Ruth 12-Under softball team for
their recent success in the Babe Ruth Softball
World Series. The team won the world series,
going undefeated throughout the more than week-
long event. The commission chambers were
packed with family and friends, commemorating
the occasion. The team received a s standing
ovation for their performance and a v ideo
highlighting their experience was shown to the
audience:
Along with comments from other
.commissioners, Mayor Gib Coerper told the team
he was proud of their success.
Coerper, who attended nearly every Santa Fe
game in the series said, "I was worn out by the
time the week was over.
"It is not only as special time for the whole
north Florida area, but for our communities in the
Alachua and High Springs area.
"I know that these memories that were made
are going to last you for a lifetime and I want to
say congratulations," Coerper said.

COMPLAINT:
Continued from page Al


City Manager to appoint new investigator


matter.
Jones wanted to ensure
that everything said, both by
him and by Drumm, would
be subject to public record,
and the agreed to meet
with Drumm the following
Wednesday, Aug. 18, on the
condition that he may record
the conversation.


Incident happened in
Gilchrist County
During the Wednesday
meeting, Jones elaborated
on the details of his and his
wife's concems. '.
The complaint she filed
last year was in objection
to actions taken by Troiano
regarding an incident of
domestic violence that took


place in Gilchrist County
between Michelle and her
brother.
According to Brandon
Joqes, after eing the victim
in an altercation with her
brother,M i ichelle Jones
notified the 'chief of the
incident out of professional
courtesy and honesty
because she had nothing to


hide.
When she informed
Troiano of the incident, he
requested that she provide
him with abrief memo to be
placed in her personnel file., ,
, Subsequently, -he Ialso
placed acopy of the sheriff's
report from the incident in
her file.
Her complaint protests
the necessity of this action,
since she claims she was the
victim and not the aggressor
in the altercation.
Additionally, t he
complaint addresses a
statement the chief m ade
while under oath during a
July 7, 2009 interview that
was part of an investigation
pertaining to an unrelated
sexual harassment complaint
against him, and the
comments he made to a l local
media outlet when answering
questions about the results of
an anonymous survey done
by the Police Benevolent
Association, Jones said.
Victim or Aggressor?
The concern, he
explained, was that Troiano
was discussing 'an issue
directly pertaining to a
separate open investigation,
and second, t hat Michelle
was at some point believed
to have been the primary
aggressor, r father than her
brother.
Jones said there was
never any reason to believe
his wife was anything byt the
victim, and he said the police
report from the incident
supports that.
It is misleading and
defamatory, he explained,
to say she "threw 'the first
punch." There is a b ig
difference between putting
ones' hands out to push
someone away in self-
defense, and thus making
the first physical contact, as
Michelle did, and "throwing
the first punch," he said.
The incident report,
which is a p public record
maintained by Gilchrist
County, names her brother as
the primary aggressor.
According to an audio
recording of the interview
in question provided by the
city, T roiano said "Michelle
Kemp was involved in a
domestic disturbance with
her brother. S he was at one
time the primary aggressor,
and was going to be arrested
and charged by the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's 0 office,
according to her. S he later
told me after her mother
testified that she became the


lesser of the two and became
the victim."
He went on to say, "There
are policies and procedures
that require that we
document that: 1My purpose
of getting th memorandum n-
was to follow this because
she used force, she punched
her brother.. .bottom line is
she'sthe victim."
He then said, "But asked
for that documentation, and I
also obtained a copy of the
arrest report and the police
report...I feel that we have a
responsibility to protect our
officers."
Jones said his wife was
never actually as suspect, but
she might have mentioned
to Troiano that during a
phone conversation directly
following the incident, the
Gilchrist County sheriff
involved told her jokingly
that she was lucky her
mother was there to attest to
her innocence.
The chief pointed out
that he never used her name
when responding to request
by a 1 ocal media outlet, and
he stands by his statement
that she was the first to use
force no matter how you
look at it.
This is why, he continued,
he had a r responsibility to
keep record of the incident.
He did so, he said, with the
interest of protecting his
officer, should she later be
accused of questionable
actions. He said because
he kept the report on file he
would then easily be able
to defend her and prove her,
innocence.
Troiano said he wanted
to make it clear that he does
not, nor did he ever, have any
intention of targeting any
employee or of maligning an
employee to the media.
Deputy Jones said
his primary purpose i n
bringing the issue to the
city commission and then in
meeting with Drumm, is to
ensure that an investigation
will be re-initiated, and
following the conclusion
of the investigation, the-
complaint will be officially
closed.
Jones questions policy
One of the questions he
asked Drumm was regarding
another High Springs police
officer who was involved
as a s suspect in a d domestic
violence call at his home
within the city limits. Jones
asked Drumm why nothing
was placed in this officer's
file, given the circumstances,


but the documents from
Michelle's incident were
included.
Jones said he felt Drumm
did not give clear response
to, this inquiry. H oweveA
Tibiano, spoke, to the issui,-_L
stating that in the other caos,
there was never any physical
contact made by either party.
It was only averbal domestic
dispute, and no arrests were
made, but specifically
because there was no issue
of physical force being used,
it did not require the same
documentation.
Drumm did, however,
state that he had now
removed the documents
pertaining to the incident
between Michelle and her
brother from her file.
He also said there would
be anew investigation made
regarding the complaint, but
there may be some delay
caused by the process of
selecting an independent
agent to investigate.
Before the Wednesday
meeting, Drumm said that
part of what may have caused
the delay in completing the
original investigation was
the fact that it was handled
by the Bunnell Police
Department at the request
of the City of High Springs.
Upon reporting back to
Drumm, the investigator
indicated that the findings
did not warrant any further
investigation.
Drumm said he wants
to be overly cautious and
ensure that everyone is
treated fairly.
This was why he came
to the commission, said
Jones, to request that the city
complete the investigation
properly and to its fullest
ability.
Troiano said he
welcomes this and any
investigation, because he
knows he has done nothing
wrong.
At this point, Drumm
emphasized that the new
investigation will not explore
the question of whether the
incident report, should have
been placed in Jones' file, as
it has since been removed.
This investigation, Drumm
said, will address two things:
"what he [Troiano] said,
and was he purposefully
untruthful."

With so many high profile
news stories regarding Intemel
predators and child abductions,
it is hard to escape the reality
that there are pedophiles
living among us who prey on
children.
In fact, the U.S. Justice
Department's Bureau of
Justice Statistics (BJS), reports
that 67 percent of all sexual
battery victims are children.
However, warning your

children to stay away fro I
strangers can give them and
you a false tense of security
because the stark truth is that
, just 3 percent of molestation
in children under the age
of 6, and just 5 percent in
children ages 6 to 11 are due
f to strangers.
5, More often than not, the
predator is someone the child
knows and trusts, a close
r family friend or even a family


and kids


member.
Even though the subject
is difficult for some parents to
discuss with their children, it
is important to start teaching
children while they are young
to differentiate between 'good
touches and bad touches. Tell
your child that if someone
wants to give hiem a bad or
secret touch, then they should
get away and come tell you
immediately.


Describe bad and secret
touches in a way they will
understand. These are touches
in a private area of the body,
like any part of the body the
bathing suit covers and that the
person does not want anyone
else to know about. Reinforce
the idea with your children
that there is nothing shameful
about telling their parents and
that they are not at fault.

Living the way of lilies of the field


Be not anxious for your life ... Consider the lilies be squandered if we don't use the proper scale to
of the field. gauge it. The scale must be balanced on the timeline
In 1875 an Anglican priest by the name of of eternity.
Malcolm MacColl wrote: Primarily, we're occupied with working to provide
To my mind the wealth of beauty expended on our food, clothing, and shelter. The more fortunate


the plumage of a humming bird, or on the
gauzy wings of some ephemeral insects, is
almost more wonderful than the creation of
an archangel.
He was making a simple point-if we
would see the supernatural works of God,
we would cry out at its beauty, but we don't
always acknowledge the beauty of God's
creation that surrounds us on a daily basis.
In Psalm 104, it says, "0 Lord, how
manifold are Thy works! In wisdom hast
Thou made them all: the earth is full of
Thy riches. The Glory of the Lord shall
endure forever: the Lord shall rejoice in
His works."
In the Gospel of Saint Matthew 6:24,
the Lord teaches us the duty of reflecting
on the beauty of creation, .-'-'consider the

lilies of the field, how they grow. They toil not, neither
do they spin: yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in
all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. "
There are those who are considered very spiritual
because they have spent so much time shut up
indoors, consumed with communicating the Gospel
through their sermons or essays. But this is opposite
to what the Psalmist and Jesus Himself have told us
in Holy Scripture.
A lot can be learned from books and sermons,
but the "book of creation" interpreted through the
Incarnate Son of God speaks with a certain voice, a
voice often ignored as we rush to meet deadlines and
to complete our self-appointed tasks.-
This isn't to say that we should sit around
attempting to contemplate the mysteries of the
universe; the Son of God taught us by His own
sacrifice that "time is of the essence." But time can


may enjoy the fruit of their labor by
having certain luxuries, but both poor and
rich alike suffer from some anxiety. This
anxiety is called by different names, e.g.,
concern, serious deliberation, or maybe,
reasonable stress. Ultimately, when we
succumb to anxiety, it's an expression
of lack of faith, an inability to hear from
the heart, the Gospel that is proclaimed
in the lilies of the field.
If we're to know and experience
the love of God, the throne of our heart
must be occupied by none other than
Jesus Christ. We can't set any idols on
that throne and expect them to carry us
safely and tenderly across our storm-
tossed lives. Of course, we must first be
willing to confess, by name, the idols:


lust, riches, social favor, respect, friendship with the
world, possessions, title, etc. Would Christ not sit
more dignified in our heart and fill those same needs
if were we humble enough to permit Him to reign
supreme?
Secondly, we must acknowledge that the throne
that Christ sits on is an altar, a place of sacrifice and
self giving-a place where none but He may hold
the scepter and speak peace." He doesn't reign like
a tyrant. He reigns as a lamb to bring comfort to us
in our despair; and, as a lion to drive off the perils of
our soul.
"Be not therefore
anxious for the morrow:
for the morrow will be
anxious for itself."
The Oxford Erglish
dictionary defines the state S


of being anxious as "to be in painful uncertainty. "
What ease and peace our Lord desires for us is that
no such state of painful uncertainty should exist,
even with regard to what is only hours away. To lose
a minute of our life in the turmoil of what we cannot
change is a crime against the life God has given to us,
for He is the Lord that is the same Yesterday, Today,
and Forever. Of course, there is in that truth, the
foundation for steadfast certainty regarding tomorrow,
next week, next year-regarding eternity. When we
are certain that God is faithful and true to us without
regard for the morrow, we can accomplish more in
this lifetime and find that the Gospel proclaimed in
the lilies of the field is our hope for a life of bountiful
grace, beauty, and peace at the last.
