Chemical explosion



sends man to hospital


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA A chemist was
seriously injured during a chemical
explosion at SynQuest Labs in
Alachua Tuesday afternoon. The


company is located in the Copeland
Industrial Park on Rachel Boulevard.
The explosion reportedly occurred
when the chemist was working with
the chemical hexafluorobutane. The
compound remains a liquid until


about 77 degrees Fahrenheit or
roughly room temperature before it
begins changing into a gaseous state,

WALDO Along U.S. Highway
301, just north of Waldo, Fla. is a red
and white colored sign in the shape of
an arrow that reads "Waldo Farmer's
& Flea Market" in bright blue letters.
A statue of a big white horse with
a black mane rests above the sign,


beckoning cars as they pass by.
The 50 acres of land that lie
beyond this famous sign are home
to North Central Florida's largest
farmers and flea market, a popular
weekend attraction for avid shoppers
and families alike.
Each weekend, about 30,000
people from all over North Central
Florida come to the flea market to


buy produce, bargain shop or just to
browse around, chat and enjoy the
weather.
"It's kind of like your old city
streets, where people would walk
around and were actually interested in
each other," owner Sally Blakewood
said. "We call ourselves the old

Alachua to vote


on development


moratorium

Legislation would suspend
development near U.S. 441 and 145


By JORDAN PETERS
Today Reporter
ALACHUA
Businesses looking to-open
near Interstate 75 and U.S.
Highway 441 may have.to
put those plans on hold.
The Alachua City
Commission is expected
to vote Monday night on
a 5-month moratorium
that would suspend all
development applications
concerning properties
within 2,000 feet of the
intersection of U.S. 441
and 1-75. The temporary


moratorium does have
some exemptions.
Although the site
of a proposed Walmart
supercenter falls largely
within the 2,000-foot zone,
it would be exempt from the
moratorium since that site
is part of a larger planned
development. According
to a City report, under
the proposed moratorium
ordinance, properties with
a zoning of Planned Unit

City considers



waiving impact



fee, raising rates


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -
As city officials search
for an answer to a
$100,000 budget shortfall,
commissioners will vote
Thursday night whether to
continue suspending water
and sewer impact fees for
12 more months.
The commission will
also consider increasing
water rates from $6 to $14
for the first 0-3,000 gallons
used.
The rate increase would


help offset the water fund
deficit, which has been
explained as a combination
of reduced revenues and
the periodic transfers of
money from the water fund
to the general fund.
Water and sewer impact
fees are based on the cost of
how much of the processing
plant's capacity a user
consumes, explained City
Manager Jenny Parham.
Higher volume usage
requires a larger meter
and a larger portion of the

Teachers of the Year
Shell Elementary and Hawthorne Middle/High


By MISHRI BHATIA
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE
Every year, the "Teachers
of the Year" for each
public school are selected
through a nomination
process followed by a
faculty vote. This award
honors individuals whp
have demonstrated a strong
commitment to the success
of their students.
In Hawthorne, Fla.,
there are two teachers of
the year, Stacey Mitchell of
Chester Shell Elementary
and Rachel Miller of
Hawthorne Middle/High.
Chester Shell
Elementary School:
Stacey Mitchell
For Stacey Mitchell,
39, teaching was something
that found her.


A f t e r
receiving her
bachelor's degree
in psychology
from the Florida
Agricultural
and Mechanical
University,
Mitchell became a Mitch
stay-at-home mom.
"Eventually
I decided to get a job so
that I could build a house,
and the only job that was
available locally was
teaching," she said. "I was
hired as a kindergarten
teacher and I've been
hooked ever since."
Currently, Mitchell
teaches a second and
third grade combination
class in which both
groups of students are
in the same room. "It's a


ell Miller
challenge because I have to
teach both grade levels, but
I try to make it exciting,"
she said. She incorporates
games, technology and
hands-on activities into her
lesson plans to engage her
students. "We don't sit for
very long."
But for Mitchell, the
best part about her job is
spending the day laughing.

Future of State Parks uncertain

Dudley Farm on proposed closure list


By RACHEL RAKOCZY

NEWBERRY While
Florida Governor Rick

this past Monday doesn't
mention specifically closing
some of Florida's State
Parks, the Department of

(DEP), which operates the
parks, is searching for ways
to cut costs.
In October each state
agency was asked to submit
budget plans to reduce its
Fiscal Year 2011-1'2 annual
operating budget by 15
percent, explained DEP
public information officer
Kristin Lock,

Serving Newberry/Jonesville


The DEP made the
proposal to close 53 state
parks with the lowest
visitation numbers that
did not have "camping
or other overnight
accommodations," said
Lock.
According to the State
Parks Web site, there are
160 state parks covering
more than 700,000 acres
that play host to more than
21 million visitors annually.
Locally, Dudley
Farm Historic State Park
in Newberry is on the
proposed closure list. The
park's Fiscal Year 2009-10
operating budget for was
$170,613, with revenues
of $23,338. Dudley Farm
features 18 buildings built


in the 1800s to 1900s.
Because there are only
three full-time employees,
volunteers help make the
park look and feel as if it
is still the 1800s. The park
is listed on the National
Register of Historic
Places, and seasonal farm
activities include cane
grindings, corn shuckings,
and Plow Days. The park
has a visitor center, picnic
area and nature trail.
Clare Shoemyen, lead
volunteer at Dudley Farms
and Alachua resident, said
this was the second time
such a proposal was made.
She said it is important to
keep the park open.
"Our history is at least
as important as any,"


Shoemyen said.
Other area parks listed in
the department's proposed
closure list include Cedar
Key State Museum State
Park, Cedar Key; Devil's
Millhopper Geological
State Park, Gainesville;

EXPLOSION:
Continued from page Al


No one else injured
said.
Alty, who was not
at the facility when the
explosion occurred, said
the injured chemist was
working with about 1.2
gallons of the chemical
and that the explosion was
enough to break the flask
in which it was contained.
The chemist was wearing
protective eyewear and
a lab coat at the time of
the incident, Alty said.
Although the injuries were
serious, he said they were
not life threatening and
the injured man remains in
Shands Hospital.
Following the incident,
Alty said his company
engaged its emergency
response team and
contacted rescue services.
A hazardous material team
responded to the scene as
well as an ambulance which
transported the injured man.
No one else was in the
lab when the explosion
occurred. The SynQuest
facility includes four labs,
but only one of them was
believed to be affected by
the blast. As of Wednesday
afternoon, manufacturing at
the site remained shut down


in Tuesday incident
as the company conducted
an incident review. Alty
said he expects some
manufacturing to resume
Thursday.
No one else was injured as
a result of the explosion and
an investigation into the
incident is continuing. Alty
said the facility doesn't
pose a threat to the public
and people shouldn't be
concerned.
"We follow all OSHA
guidelines and have permits
for everything," he said.
SynQuest Labs specializes
in fluorine chemistry and
produces compounds using
fluorine. The products
are typically sold in small
amounts to laboratories
around the world for
research and development
purposes, Alty said.
The company occupies
about 55,000 square feet,
most of which is office
and warehouse space. It
has been in the Copeland
Industrial Park since 1995
and employs about 35
people.

'kids say the darnest
things'? Well they really
do," she said. "They're
entertaining and so loving
at the same time. I always
feel like a celebrity."
According to Principal
Denise Schultz, Mitchell is
a "phenomenal teacher."
"She pushes the
students cognitively to
explore why they answer
questions the way they do,"
Schultz said. "She has high
expectations, and the kids
rise to them."
Moreover, she's also
great to work with, Schultz
said. "She brings energy,
a great sense of humor
and a love for education
to the school and she's an
excellent resource for new
and veteran teachers."
Aside from teaching,
Mitchell enjoys attending
her children's sporting
events and traveling with
her husband and three kids.
"I'm a typical soccer
mom," she said. "You
can always find me on
somebody's field watching
a game."


Hawthorne Middle/High
School: Rachel Miller
Rachel Miller's
teaching career came out of
her desire to help people.
She began working in
a rehab facility for women
with eating disorders after
she graduated from the
University of Florida with
a bachelor's degree in
psychology and a master's
degree in entrepreneurial
projects.
"I realized that the
females here were at a
point where they were so
far gone that they couldn't
really be helped," she said.
"I decided that I wanted
to meet people earlier
on, when I could actually
influence their lives." Now,
at the age of 30, she teaches
advance placement courses
and high school English at
Hawthorne Middle/High
School.
"I value my students
as individuals in their own
right," Miller said. "I try to
communicate and see what
ways I can tap into their


interests and strengths at
their individual level."
She recalls a time when
she decided to create a
rap song to encourage
her students: "One of my
students would constantly
try to freestyle about
anything other than school,
so while I was at the dentist,
I came up with a rap about
using your full potential."
Students now refer to
the rap song as "The Miller
Rap."
But the most gratifying
part of her day is seeing the
change and growth in her
students. "It's the moments
when they start to really
get it that are the most
rewarding."
According to Veita
Jackson-Carter, principal
of Hawthorne Middle/High
School, Miller's work ethic
and high expectations are
"immeasurable."
"She is driven to be
the best and she expects
nothing less from her
students," Carter said.
Miller also serves as
the co-department chair of


the Reading and Language
Arts Professional Learning
Community and is the
sponsor for the school's
Literary Club.
In the future, Miller
hopes to continue to
develop her skills and
work toward national board
certification.

Newberry baseball park



set for groundbreaking


Park will feature turf infields


By RACHEL RAKOCZY
Today Reporter
NEWBERRY Construction on the
City of Newberry-Nations Baseball Park
will begin with a groundbreaking ceremony
at 2 p.m. Feb. 25, said Newberry parks and
recreation director Richard Blalock.
Blalock said the park will feature
16 baseball fields with bleachers and
concession stands, but the main attraction
is what will be under your feet.
The fields will feature turf in the infield
and grass outfield. The park will be one of
the first in the country to have this feature.
"With the level of tournaments we will
have and the way it rains here, the turf will
let the games resume much faster," Blalock
said.
Rainwater will run off the turf so the
players will be able to play on the fields,
instead of having to wait for the traditional
clay surface to dry and be raked, he said.
The fields will be for youth baseball
boys up to 13-years-old, and for girls and
women's fast pitch softball.
The exact location of the park has not
been decided. But, Blalock said it will be


on the west side of Highway 27/41 on SW
30th Avenue.
The ballpark was proposed after the
Davis family of Archer donated 80 acres of
land to the city. And it is expected to create
a revenue stream for the city's coffers.
"It's going to bring 50 to 80,000 people
to the city and will hopefully get people
to spend their money in our county while
they're here," said city manager Keith
Ashby.
Alachua County has provided the
funding for construction through a bed
sales tax, while the city commitment is $7
million, Ashby said.
Ashby said the ballpark should be
completed in October.
Invitations to the groundbreaking
ceremony have been sent to the governor,
state delegations and the city commission.
"We don't know yet who's coming, but
we've pretty much invited the whole world
to come," Ashby said.

Hawaii:

Using an obscene number of frequent
flier miles, we were finally able to book
that dream trip to Hawaii.
Well, it's not dreamy in a romantic sort
of way, because our kids will be coming
with us, but it's still a dream trip because
we never thought it would
happen.
In fact, it hasn't happened
yet. There could still be a
blizzard on the day of our ,.
departure. Or a glitch in the
reservations. Or maybe Air
Force One will break down
and the President will need to l 1'
commandeer our flight.
So when will the dreams
ensue?... The ones about palm
trees and hula skirts swaying in Laura <
the breeze?
Since my husband booked


the trip, I have been having a series of
nightmares centered around the trip and
my children. Not dreams at all.
They are somewhat based on my
children's irrational apprehensions. Some
of them are about getting through airport
security with three squirrelly kids.
My son thinks that if he brings an
extra battery pack for his PSP, security
will think it's a bomb. Lights will glare
and sirens will blare and armed men will
whisk him away to spend the rest of his
days in a high-security prison.
My daughter wants to know if she
should wear sandals instead of sneakers.

capacity of the plant. Residential
customers would be subject to
a relatively minimal impact fee
compared to that of a commercial/
industrial customer. Sewer impact
fees can range from about $3,000
for a standard home to about
$12,000 for small businesses.
In January 2010, the
commission suspended impact fees
for six months. Former Mayor Bill
Coughlin hoped the suspension
would encourage economic
development, as businesses would
not have to spend as much to build.
Halfway through the year, the
commission voted to extend the
moratorium another six months.
Fees collected prior to the
suspension are being used to pay
for a new lift station, the component
of the sewer system which is
placed at low points in the city
to pull incoming wastewater to a
higher elevation to put it back on a
downward incline so it will continue
to move the rest of the way to the
plant.
Mayor Larry Travis and
Commissioner Eric May agree there
has been no noticeable increase
in new business in the city since
suspending the fees. However,
they pointed to new residential
construction as a place where the


)act fees about $3,000 on homes


moratorium is having a positive
influence.
According to data provided
by city permit technician Dralynn
Swick, 19 single-family homes
were built in 2010. Eighteen of
them were built after Feb. 15, which
is when the moratorium went into
effect.
This compares to 13 homes built
in 2009, 24 in 2008, 39 in 2007 and
25 in 2006.
May is in favor of extending the
moratorium another 12 months, and
as construction starts in the Douglass
Planned Unit Development, he said
having those fees waived would
help make new housing more
affordable.
Some questioned if property
owners aren't paying that cost, who
is?
According to Travis, the fees can
only be used to cover costs of future
growth, such as the expansion of
the wastewater treatment plant to
handle higher capacity as new users
are hooked up.
The city's centralized
wastewater system is being paid for
with grant and loan money through
the U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA).
Parham said the grant money
pays for the cost of connecting to


the system, but it cannot be used
in the place of impact fees to pay
for the cost of the system. The loan
funds are used to pay for the system,
which is why the city is in the
process of applying for nearly $5
million in bonds to cover the cost of
phase four of the plant's expansion.
In lieu of impact fees, May said
rates are what will pay back the
bond. They account for growth
and increase in users, he added, so
the increases would be minimal as
the cost gets spread over a wider
customer base.
But that would mean that
ultimately, the property owner is
going to pay, whether it's now by
impact fee or over the next several
decades in rate hikes while the city
repays its loan.
Commissioner Sue Weller said
she isn't sure if impact fees are the
solution, but without charging them,
she said, "There are arguments that
over time, residents have to pay."
She added that part of the
problem with the current water
fund shortage is that rates haven't
been increased year to year as they
should have been.

MORATORIUM:
Continued from page A 1

No plans yet for activity center


exempt because those districts
already include specified
conditions approved by the
commission. The proposed
ordinance allows for other
exemptions as well.
The purpose of the
moratorium is to allow the
commission to create a
Gateway Activity Center
near the area. Alachua's
Comprehensive Plan
mandates that the city
establish such a center in
order to "welcome existing
and future residents and
visitors to the City of
Alachua, and to promote
Alachua as an attractive,
vibrant, and economically
prosperous community."
In August 2010, Alachua
commissioners voted to move
ahead with establishing and
implementing the Gateway
Activity Center when it
approved an Evaluation and
Appraisal Report (EAR),
a state mandated planning
document.
The activity center would


likely involve an overlay
district, which would be
added onto existing zoning
restrictions already in
place for the area. These
additional restrictions would
likely involve aesthetic
concerns like landscaping
requirements, a uniform
set of building materials,
and signage restrictions,
according to Kathy Winburn,
Alachua's Planning and
Community Development
Director.
The moratorium would
also likely further restrict the
types of businesses allowed
in the area.
Winburn also said that
there are no proposed site
plans for the area yet and
that the city "won't know
until we draft the policies"
exactly what changes the new
restrictions will bring.

fashioned flea market."
With over 900 dealers
throughout the year, the flea
market offers a large variety
of products. From kitchen
utensils and wooden
swings to sunglasses and
toys for children, according
to Blakewood, there's
something for everyone.
Not to mention, the farmers
market offers a wide
array of fresh fruits and
vegetables that are locally
grown. For the hungry
shoppers, the market also
has a small caf6 that serves
breakfast until 11 a.m. as
well as sandwiches and a
variety of snacks.
"I find everything I'm
looking for every time I
come," said Jane Bishop,
a frequent visitor of the
flea market. At least once a
month for the past 12 years,
Bishop has driven from
her home in High Springs,
Fla., to the flea market
to buy produce and other
essentials.
Aside from being a good
place to find items for low
prices, the flea market also
provides a venue for local
residents to walk around,
grab a snack and enjoy the
weather, Blakewood said.
According to Bishop,
the market has more
"character and flavor" than
a mall or supermarket,
which is what makes it such
a great place to spend the
day. "When the weather's
nice, you can easily make
half a day of it," she said.
But it's not just a place
for visitors to enjoy; the
dealers have a good time,
too.
"It's a lot of fun," said
Carol Melvin, who has been
selling jewelry, t-shirts,
dolls and other items at the
flea market for the past four
years. "You get to meet a
lot of nice people."
Kimberly Brooks,
who sells lawn and patio
furniture a few spaces
down said she just likes to
"watch the people go by."
"You get a lot more
traffic at flea markets, with
people buying a bunch of
different things."
Dealers can rent out
a space that comes with
two tables to display their
items for $15 each time
they come. Some are year-
round dealers, others are
seasonal and many just
come once or twice to get
rid of items they don't need
anymore.
The flea market first
opened in 1975 after
Blakewood's parents, Al
and Anne Killian, came
across one while traveling
cross-country in their motor
home. "My dad was a true


Alachua Business


entrepreneur," Blakewood
said. "He really liked the
idea and decided to open
one in Waldo."
According to
Blakewood, it was the
perfect location for a flea
market. "We're kind of in
the middle of nowhere, but
it works because we draw
people from everywhere,"
she said. She recalls
the first day the market
opened, "It was a typical
rainy day in August, and
because my dad was good


at advertising, people came
from all over," she said.
"Unfortunately, they didn't
anticipate all the mud from
the rain, and they had to
call tow trucks to get all the
cars out."
Now the parking lot is
fully paved.
But that's not the only
change the market has
seen since its opening. In
1980, Blakewood and her
husband purchased the flea
market from her parents
and expanded it to 50 acres


from the original 40. They
also added a 20,000-square-
foot antique mall, which
has become a popular
spot for antique collectors
as well as other visitors.
Moreover, a traffic light
was also installed in order
to control the traffic going
to and from the market.
There have been a lot'
of changes throughout the
years, said Jim Faltz, a
permanent dealer for the
past 20 years and owner
of "The Knife Shack," one


of the oldest stores in the
market. "I've been around
here for a long time and
I've seen a lot of people
come and 'go," he said.
But the one thing that has
stayed consistent is the
personal contact with each
visitor.
"I like dealing face-
to-face with people,"
Faltz said. "I can have an
exchange with them, it's
more hands-on and the
customers really appreciate
it, which means a lot to


me."
For Faltz, that one-on-
one contact is the one thing
he hopes will never change.
Blakewood said the
"face-to-face contact" is
one of the flea market's
biggest appeals, adding,
"Where else can you go
where people will actually
take the time to talk to you
and help you?"

73-65.
With tears of emotions,
teeth broken, and
enthusiastic fans, the final
game of the regular season
definitely lived up to any
expectations it could have
had.
No. 24, C.J. Wakeley,
who had an outstanding
game, would start off slow
but come through for the
Raiders in the end.
"We were down and we
had to fight back," Wakeley
said.
With only 26.6 seconds
remaining in the game,
and the.Raiders ahead by 8
points, the game was called
on account of disturbances
in the stands.
Fortunately, the coaches
and announcers were able
to settle the crowds and no
one was seriously injured.
Coach Elliot Harris said
he was proud of his players.
"Our guys did a good
job of staying on our
bench," Harris said. "Our
coaches got our guys out of
it. It was the crowd, not our
guys."
It was Senior Night
for the boy's basketball
team and all the senior
cheerleaders and players
were given a round of
applause from the audience
and a short and sweet
mini-biography from game
announcer Mike Daroza.
"You start out four
years ago and you don't
know how they're going
to turn out. They ended
up being a pretty special
group," Harris said. "I'm
going to remember those


i before heading on to District Championships






1 F 1W


guys because they came in
with me. This is my fourth
year and their fourth year,
and this group .of guys is
very special to me."
As for the game, the
Raiders definitely did not
start out playing as well as
possible and did not take
a lead in the game until 6
minutes and 30 seconds
remaining in the 3rd
quarter.
The home team started
off down by 9 points after
Palatka's No. 20, Joc
Peeples hit for two 3-point
shots and, No. 1 Chris
Johnson hit for another.
The Raiders did not seem
prepared for the man-
to-man, full court press
defense of the Panthers.
The deficit for the
Raiders was as much as
14-2 in the beginning of the
first quarter alone.
After a couple of fouls
by Palatka and key shots
made by Santa Fe's No.
0, Marcus Gaddy, the lead
shortened. It wasn't until
the final seconds of the
first quarter though, that
the momentum began to
switch.
With only seconds
remaining and a picture-
perfect pick, Wakeley
was given the ball for the
chance at a long three.
With a swish and a home-
crowd scream, the Raiders
were back in the ball game
at 16-17.
During the second
quarter,- the two teams
fought for the lead. Santa
Fe, which at this point had
yet to own a lead, started
to gain a little rhythm
and managed to enter the
second half down only 32-
35.
Harris said his team was
battled tested so a tough
fight like this was second
nature for the Raiders.
Wakeley, who


defensively covered
Peeples in the first quarter,
had to switch to cover No.
4, Antonio McRae after
McRae started to find his
shot on the court.
McRae, in the second
quarter alone, dropped 13
points on the Raiders. He
would end up scoring 18
total points before getting
fouled out with four
minutes and seven seconds
left.
It was a physical game
on both sides of the ball
with both the Panthers and
Raiders having 11 fouls a
piece in the first half alone.
Without taking
attention away from the
rest of the team, the 3rd
quarter belonged to one
player...Wakeley.


After starting off
slow, Wakeley exploded
in the 3rd quarter with an
impressive 18 points. He
would finish the game with
an outstanding 36 points
for the evening.
SThe remainder of the
Raider team would score,
in total, 37 points.
"It was pretty emotional
for me since it was the last
game of my senior season,"
Wakeley said. "The game
was really intense and I
like an intense game."
The home crowd
supported the Raiders the
whole game and were
a definite factor. in the
victory, but it wasn't until
halfway through the third
quarter that the gymnasium
itself was affected.


After a quick pass,
Santa Fe's No. 11, Ashton
Lee was able to jump up
and slam a two-handed
dunk on a Palatka defender.
Without being too
stereotypical, the crowd
went wild. The Panthers
would not regain the lead
for the remainder of the
game.
The Raiders would end
the third quarter up by nine.
The fourth quarter did
not see much of a change
in score. A couple of times
the Panthers were able to
gain some rhythm, but just
because one team gains
some rhythm does not
mean the other team loses
it.
Harris said it was a big
win and big confidence


booster after coming off a
devastating loss to district
foe Williston.
"We set a goal in the
beginning of the season to
be in the final four. We've
had a couple of bumps in
the road, but we've been in
every game we've played,"
Harris said. "And we've
played some tough games."
The Raiders will go
on to play the Suwannee
Bulldogs in the Class 4A
District 5 Tournament
Friday night at 6 p.m. at
Williston High School.

the student admission day,

Dudley employee Andrew
Woolum.
Last year, the event had
an even lower turnout. But
Woolum said he attributed
that to a variety of time
conflicts.
"Last year we were
competing with an early
UF basketball game, the
Hoggetowne Medieval
Faire at the fairgrounds,
and rainy weather," he
said. "And, the next day-
was the Super Bowl."
Becky Blocker and
Janice Bohanary, of
Palatka, Fla., brought their
children to the event. It was
the sixth year the families
have attended Plow Days.
"They love it," Blocker
said, referring to the
7-year-old girl and 3-year-
old boy running ahead.
"She's old enough to
understand what is going
on and see what it was like
back in the day."
Over 100 volunteers
from the Dudley
Farms Citizen Support
Organization were
stationed at the buildings
to tell visitors about the
farm's history, acted as
a blacksmith or plowed
the fields using teams of
horses and mules.
Clare Shoemyen, lead
volunteer at Dudley Farm,
met Myrtle Dudley before
the park was opened to the
public. Shoemyen said it
is important to understand
what life was like back in

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

Women's dental care and heart health related


Older women may
lower their risk of heart
disease and stroke by a third
if they get regular dental
care. That's the finding, at
least, of a study published
last September and led by
a University of California,
Berkeley, researcher. The
study used data from nearly
7,000 people ages 44 to
88. The majority of the
subjects were over 50 years
old, the reasoning being
that men at that age are
more likely to already have
experienced symptoms of
cardiovascular disease.
Estrogen is generally
thought to protect women
against cardiovascular
disease until they begin


menopause.
The study was
published in the periodical
Health Economics. The
study compared people
who had visited the dentist
during the previous two
years with those who
had not. The findings
add yet another chapter
to a growing body of
research linking oral and
cardiovascular health.
According to the American
Health Association, twice
as many women die of
cardiovascular disease than
from all types of cancer.
Man or woman, talk with
your dentist about the
impact of your oral health
on your overall well-being.

Cyberbullying


Cyberbullying is similar
to other types of bullying,
except it take place online and
through text messages sent
to cell phones. Cyberbullies
can be classmates, online
acquaintances, and even
anonymous users, but most
often they do know their
victims. Some examples of
ways kids bully online are by
sending mean or threatening
emails, instant messages or
text messages, or excluding


*


someone from an instant
messenger buddy list or by
blocking the victim's email for
no reason. Often, cyberbullies
have also been known to trick
victims into revealing personal
or embarrassing information
about themselves, which they
then send to others. Some also
break into someone's email
or instant message account to
send cruel or untrue messages
while posing as that person.

effects as children who are
bullied in person, such as
a drop in grades, low self-
esteem, a change in interests
and depression. Cyberbullying
victims may feel worse than
traditional bullying victims
because the bullying takes
place in the children's' homes
and cyberbullies often say
things online they wouldn't
say in person or hide behind

Passion for fellowship


- Part 2


Continuing last week's
discussion, we can't return
to the garden or revive the
original liturgy of creation
and fellowship until we
are certain that the Triune
God wills nothing for us
except what is good. In
Jesus Christ we're met
with the hope of all hopes;
God has come to us, has
met us in His Son. This
act of redemption and
reconciliation takes place
in space and time, and in
human flesh. It's indeed
related to the material,
or 'worldly matter.' The
assurance of God's good
will for man, is that in
Jesus Christ, God and man
once again walk -together
in fellowship in this world,
Creation is not only made
the stage for our encounter
but it's through Jesus
Christ that fellowship in
the created world has been
restored.
Consider the diseased
woman described in Saint
Matthew chapter nine as


an example of one who
was willing to take the first
step in a better liturgy for
human existence. Recall
the few words of this
suffering woman who
was described as having
'an issue of blood', and
consider how her faith
and hope towards God
manifested itself. She
thinks, "If I may but touch
his garment, I shall be
whole." (Saint Matthew
9:21) As she touches the
hem of Jesus Christ's
garment she is healed.
How is this possible? She
'hasn't talked to Jesus or
begged for His healing
hand to touch her. In
fact, He makes no move
toward her at all. She
simply believes that what
has clothed the Son of
God, the garment, is in
itself a medium suitable
for God to use to restore
wholeness. This faithful
woman doesn't see a
contradiction between
what's made and the spirit

THE VEN. JOHN E.
PLEASURE
All Saints Anglican
Church, Gainesville.
A parish of the
Christian Episcopal
Church
held invisibly in it.
There are no barriers
or limitations, God
among us means that
even the material fabric of
creation is beneficial when
sustained and upheld by
the Creator. The cloth and
the Man wrapped in the
cloth were as one in the
woman's eyes. The Church
Fathers understood this
principle and confessed
that whatsoever is assumed
by the Son of God is healed
by its union with Him.


If we would follow the
diseased woman's example
and come to Christ and
fall on our knees at His
feet, we would take a step
in the Gospel liturgy of
creation and life in Jesus
Christ. His presence is
the revelation of His good
will.
Worship doesn't
take place out of the
body, but within our full
human nature. Likewise,
salvation doesn't come
from without and force
itself on those who deny
the flesh; salvation takes
place in the flesh and blood
of the Son of God. Human
nature is assumed and
healed in the Incarnation,
Crucifixion, Resurrection,
and Ascension of the
Incarnate Son of God,
Jesus Christ.
Saint John of Damascus
realized that some would
think that this theology
leads to the worship of
created matter, not of the
Creator. He corrects that
by eloquently stating, "I
do not worship matter;
I worship the Creator

of matter, who became
matter for me, taking
up His abode in matter,
and accomplishing my
salvation through matter.
'And the Word became
flesh and dwelt among us.'
It is obvious to everyone
that flesh is matter, and
that it is created. I salute
matter and I approach
it with reverence, and
I worship that through
which my salvation has
come.
To think that anything
about human existence
is outside of Jesus Christ
assumes that the woman,
who was healed of an
issue of blood, could have
been healed by touching
her own garment. It isn't
what we make, but what
God Himself consecrates
by His presence that can
become a vehicle for


encounter and fellowship.
To ignore such reality is to
think of God as somehow
far removed from our life
and human experience. To
see the presence of God
in what has been made
and His participation
with Creation through the
Incarnation is also to see
the blessedness which is
in store for us, and to see
and live in fellowship with
God who has reconciled
all things through the Son
of God Incarnate.
That's the call to
Christians. We must, by
faith, see the presence of
the Son who invites us and
calls us to participate in
His relationship with the
Father, walk in fellowship
together, and walk in the
garden with God.

repossession


Special to
Alachua County Today
When you finance or
lease a car, truck or other
vehicle, your creditor or
lessor holds important
rights on the vehicle until
you've made the last loan
payment or fully paid off
your leasing obligation.
These rights are established
by the signed contract and
by state law. For example,
if your payments are late or
you default on your contract
in any way, your creditor or
lessor may have the right to
repossess your car.
In many states, including
Florida, creditors or lessors
can do this legally without
going to court or warning
you in advance, as long as
they do not'breach the peace.
In addition, your creditor or
lessor may be able to sell
your contract to a third party,
called an assignee, who
may have the same rights
and responsibilities as the
original creditor or lessor.
However, some state
laws, including Florida's,
limit the ways a creditor
or lessor can repossess and
sell a vehicle. If any rules
are violated, the creditor or
lessor may be required to pay
you, the consumer, monetary
damages.
After a vehicle is
repossessed, assuming it
is repossessed properly, a
creditor may dispose of the
vehicle in a "commercially
reasonable fashion," which
usually ifeans at an auction
attended only by people in
the business of buying cars
cheap and then filing suit
against the consumer for
the difference between what
was owed on the car and
what the vehicle sold for. In
some cases, the consumer
could end up owing almost
as much as he or she paid for
the car without having the
car any longer so consumers
must be extremely wary and
not allow such a situation to
occur.
Seizing the Car
In many states, including
Florida, your creditor or
lessor has legal authority to
seize your vehicle as soon
as you default on your loan


or lease, which could be a
matter of days or weeks.
Because state laws differ,
consumers must read their
contract to find out what
constitutes a default in
their specific situation. In
virtually all states, failure
to make a payment on time
or to meet other contractual
responsibilities, such as
not keeping insurance
in effect, are considered
defaults. Most vehicles are
repossessed when payments
are not made on time and
most often it is as little as
two payments.
if your creditor or lessor
has agreed to change your
payment date or any other
contractual obligations, it's
possible that the terms of
your original contract may
no longer apply. Such a
change may be made orally
or in writing. It's best to
get any changes in writing
because oral agreements are
difficult to prove.
If you default on your
loan, you must know that
the law in Florida allows the
creditor or lessor to repossess
your car. Creditors or lessors
hire people who are allowed
on your property, by day or
at night, to seize your car
without letting you know in
advance. These people are
known as "REPO GUYS."
Their job is to legally 'steal'
your car away from you.
They usually do not want
you to know about it because
most people would object or
put up a fight and they don't


want that to happen, even
though the law may be on
their side.
However, the law usually
doesn't allow your creditor or
lessor to commit a breach of
the peace in connection with
repossession. Removing
a car from a closed garage
without permission usually
constitutes a breach .of the
peace. Breaking into a
locked car does not; if the
car is parked in a place
where any member of the
public could gain access to
it without breaking a lock or
committing a forcible entry
onto or into the property it is
usually permitted.
Creditors or lessors who
breach the peace in seizing
your car may be required
to compensate you if they
harm you or your property.
A consumer, who stands in
front of a car and refuses to
move, cannot be physically
forced to move. If a "repo
guy" runs over a consumer's
toe in the process of
repossessing a car that is a
breach of peace. Threatening
to do harm, committing an
assault, committing a battery,
or a burglary or virtually
any crime in the process of
repossessing a vehicle is a
breach of the peace.
Therefore, while
creditors have the right
to repossess a vehicle
if a consumer fails to
make payments on time
or otherwise breaches a
contract for the purchase of
a vehicle, consumers have


rights, too.
