By GLENN COINE

HIGH SPRINGS-- The
votes came in last November
and High Springs residents
have spoken: They voted in
favor of offering industry
a little something extra to
locate in their city, paving
the way for local tax breaks.
On Feb. 10, the City
Commission finalized the
requirements and procedures
for 'granting ad-valorem
tax exemptions to new and
expanding businesses.
The referendum
authorizing the commission
to offer these tax exemptions
was passed by a majority
vote in the last election, and
last week commissioners
took the final step in a

Sex shop wants to open near 1-75


By JORDAN PETERS &
CRAIG COX
Today Reporters
.ALACHUA A company that runs
a chain of adult novelty stores has
applied for permits to open in Alachua
near Interstate 75. The company plans
to operate as a retail shop and sell
lingerie, clothing, adult novelties, videos,
magazines and books according to an
application submitted by the sex shop.
Lion's Den Adult Superstores, a
sexually oriented business, first submitted
paperwork on Oct. 20, 2010 to open a
store in the former Scultura building


near Waffle House. The same building
had been home to The Western Teepee,
a western clothing store, for many years
before it closed in 2005.
Lion's Den Adult Superstores, which
operates 41 sex shops in the eastern
United States, reportedly submitted an
incomplete application to the City to open
a shop at 15981 NW U.S. Highway 441.
According to City Manager Traci Cain,
the application did not meet the regulation
requirements to change the location from
retail to a sex shop.

Anticipating what they
all know will be a tight

the High Springs City

cost of keeping the city's
fire department against
contracting with Alachua

But the possibility of
doing away with the High

Alachua County sees


increased wildfire activity


By MISHRI BHATIA
Today Reporter
ALACHUA COUNTY Alachua
County has seen significantly more
wildfires this year compared to previous
years primarily due to weather changes, said
Ludie Bond, wildfire mitigation specialist
for the Florida Division of Forestry and a
member of the Alachua County Wildfire
Mitigation Task Force.
According to Bond, from Sdpt. 1, 2010
to Feb. 16, 2011, there were 64 fires in
Alachua County affecting 3,237.4 acres
of land, which is a significant increase
compared to last year's seven fires that
affected 29.9 acres.
Moreover, two of the biggest fires in

Tips to prevent wildfires
* Check with your local wildfire
mitigation specialist to make sure it's
legal.

setbacks on how far away you have to
be from your home, your neighbor's
home, woods and public paved roads.
a Bum yard waste only; no household
garbage.
* Don't bur on windy days.
a Never leave a fire unattended.
* Keep a water hose or shovel handy in
case your fire escapes.
a Make sure your smoke does not
obstruct the visibility on nearby roads.
* Be sure your fire is completely out
before you leave.
a Go back and recheck the fire within the
next day or two.

Jesse says,
"God gives the in-
gredients for our
Daily Bread, but
He expects us to
do the baking."


"We already have some
pamphlets and such available, but
we need a real tourism center," she
said. "When the ballpark opens,
there will be a lot of people here
and we want to answer that question
visitors have of what's there to do
here."
In addition to housing the
art gallery and the Main Street
Organization's office, the building
will be the home of the tourism
center. The Chamber of Commerce
is located there as well.
"It's quite a utility building,"
Hendrix said. "The commissioners
have all been very supportive


of our program and made the
building available to us. It's been a
tremendous help to the community."
Hendrix hopes the event Friday
night will "be around for a while"
and in the future will feature local
students' artwork. Another goal is
to create an art studio because the
city's middle and high school lack
full art programs.
This art show is kind of small,
but we're hoping the event will
bloom into something bigger," she
said.

"We're looking to reduce
our spending," Travis said. "We
can't cut back anymore." Travis
pointed out that city staff has not
received raises in three years, and
took a five percent pay cut this
year.
His proposal is one way of
"looking to see if we could do
some things cheaper."
As far as details of what a
favorable price from the county
would be, and how a transition
could be made, Travis said he
won't know until he has all the
numbers in front of him.
For now, High Springs is just
testing the waters, well before it is

the entrance room's back wall. The
artwork willinclude photographs,
paintings and drawings as well as
some in 3-D, said Barbara Hendrix,
Main Street Organization manager.
All of the artwork will be for
sale with prices ranging from $50
to $750. Proceeds of the sales will
go to the Main Street program, she
said.
Hendrix said the program
intends to have a functioning
tourism center, especially because
of the construction of Nations
ballpark. The organization will use
the money gained through its role as
a business incubator.


initially submitted by Lion's Den
were reportedly incomplete. In
letters to the company, the city's
planning staff noted that since the
business would be operating as a
"sex shop," its location had to meet
specific requirements called for in
the city's codes.
Apparently the greatest legal
hurdle for the company to overcome
had been the requirement that there
is one parking space for every 200
square feet of building. With some
6,000 square feet, the city calculates
the sex shop would need 30 parking
spaces instead of the 21 currently
on site.
In light of the parking concerns,
the sex shop has even proposed
creating a porch by knocking out
several exterior walls to reduce
the building's enclosed space and
thereby reduce the required parking
spaces. City officials said they were
unsure if such demolition would
actually constitute a reduction in
building space.
Simply adding additional
parking spaces may prove to


be a near impossible task. The
proposed site is either surrounded
by other properties or rights of
way, and little open space exists
for additional pavement. Even if
land did exist, local and state laws
enacted since the building was
originally built would likely require
the construction of a retention basin
to catch additional runoff from any
impervious surfaces.
Perhaps an even tougher battle
for the proposed sex shop is that the
Alachua City Commission voted
unanimously Monday night to
pass a five-month moratorium on
development near the intersection
of Interstate 75 and U.S. 441.
The development will suspend all
applications for development within
2,000 feet of the intersection while
city planning staff develops new
zoning restrictions for a Gateway
Activity Center.
The moratorium, which exempts
property zoned as Planned Unit
Development, will likely suspend
the application of the Lion's Den
sex shop.


Aside from Lion's Den, the
moratorium will affect few other
properties. Most of the land near the
intersection is already developed
and a Planned Unit Development
exemption will allow development
to continue on the Walmart
supercenter being proposed near the
intersection.
Lion's Den is not the first
sex shop Alachua has dealt with.
Beginning in 2003, the City of
Alachua battled it out in court with
owners of Adult World, an adult
novelty and video store, when they
opened in the former Huddle House
building located diametrically
opposite of the Scultura building.
The City ultimately won that
battle after a court ruled that Adult
World had violated state law when
it opened within 2,500 feet of Santa
Fe High School. The Scultura
building is beyond that distance.

addiction will seep into every

I've seen it happen and could only stand
by and watch. No matter what restrictions I
put on them, the path doesn't change.
S It starts out by some "dealer" saying
f'Try this." The kid will try because their
"'dealer" is usually someone they trust, like
,their dad, older brother or close friend.

their insidious way into those plans.

Mom, after my three hours of game time.
Otherwise, someone else will be on the
computer and I won't have a chance to

My children have learned that it is far
easier for me to ban video games for the

Boo-hoo.
I started out not wanting to be rude
and trying to accommodate the interests of
my children. After all, I know it would've
upset me if my parents banned the activities
I liked to do. Even if they thought those
activities were not good for me, I still
would have been mad.
The fact that my children may be mad
at me doesn't seem to bother me as much
as the thought of seeing a virtual weapon
in their virtual hands being used on virtual
people.
"But Mom, they're zombies, not
real people. They have no brains, or
conscience."
It doesn't take long for those cute little
cartoon characters to become zombies,
does it? How long will it be before they
think I'm a zombie? How long before the
virtual weapon becomes real?
The trick, I think, is to keep them
grounded in real life 90% longer than they
are immersed in a virtual life. At least, I
hope that'll work.

WILDFIRES:
Co ntinued from page Al

Hawthorne, Cross/Creek Island Grove and


'Windsor identified as "high-risk" areas


the Waccasassa district, which covers
Plachua, Putnam, Marion, Gilchrist and
Levy counties, have occurred in Alachua
County this year, burning 2,700 acres in
1urnt Island and 305 acres in Orange
Isake.
', "Normally, springtime is usually
,,hen you see the largest acreage of
fires," Bond said. "But with the amount
of wind we've had, fires have been
spreading." The cold temperatures
along with the drought have dried up the
Vegetation, which also fuels the fire.
The biggest problem is that many
people do not pay attention to the weather
and' are burning without permission, she
said. From Jan. 1 to Feb. 14, there were
70 wildfires in the Waccasassa District
and 22 of them were caused by escaped,
non-authorized burns.
SAccording to Bond, vegetation
gorierated on site is the only thing that
caif be burned legally, but many people
have been burning household waste
and other things without permission.
If a non-authorized fire escapes,
thoSe responsible can be fined for the
suppression cost along with any damage


that was done to the property.
On Monday afternoon, an
unauthorized fire north of the Fairbanks
burned 35 acres due to the dry and
windy weather conditions. The wildfire
burned near two homes and threatened
about 12. "People really need to be
aware of the potential damage that
can occur from an unauthorized debris
burn," Bond said.
The Alachua County Wildfire
Mitigation Task Force, a subcommittee
to the county's Local Mitigation Strategy
Group, has identified a "corridor of
concern," which spreads from the Cross
Creek/Island Grove community up to
Hawthorne and over to Windsor, Bond
said.
"We identified this corridor as a
high-risk area of concern for wildfires
due to its fire history, fire causes and fire
suppression resources that are available.
Of all the fires that have occurred in
Alachua County over the last 13 months,
a good half of them have occurred in
this corridor."
Representatives from the task force
have taken an active effort to educate


the residents of these high-risk areas by
attending community events as well as
conducting a door-to-door campaign in
which they visit with the residents, hand
out brochures and give them suggestions
on how to protect their homes from the
dangers of wildfires.
Members of the task force will
be visiting families in Hawthorne on
Thursday. "We feel like if we have a very
strong presence in this area and a get a
lot of face time with the residents in the
community, we can make an impact,"
Bond said. "Ultimately, our goal is
not just to provide the information and
educate people but to change their
attitude and change their behavior."
She encourages residents to call the
local mitigation specialist to ask about
weather conditions or any other concerns
relating to burning and wildfires.

Currently, the City of Hawthorne is about.
one-third of the way through its fiscal year
without an approved balanced budget.
After meeting with Suzanne Gable and John
Brower from the Alachua County Office of
Management and Budget, Vause announced that
the plan to replenish the Wild Spaces and Public
Places money is to pay $5,000 monthly until the
account has been fully funded. The city's Wild
Spaces and Public Places funds, which have
restricted uses, had been co-mingled with the
city's general funds and apparently had been
spent on unauthorized expenditures.
At the previous Hawthorne City Commission
meeting on Feb. 1, the commission made
a motion to create a separate bank account
designated for the Wild Spaces program to
ensure that the money is where it should be.
Vause quoted Gable and Brower saying, "We
have our game plan and we have to adhere to our

you like to make a lot less
money?'."
Morris had been a part
of the corporate world
as a display manager for
Filenes, a department store
which has since gone out of
business. He said there is
one big difference between
the corporate and non-
profit world.
"When you serve your
community you know that
what you do really matters
at the end of the day,"
Morris said.
Because it is a fairly


recent language, his deaf
grandmother, school
friends with developmental
disabilities, cerebral palsy,
and hearing impairments
were not taught the
language when Morris was
growing up.
"Now you can study it,
just like French or German
or any other language,"
Morris said.
Instead, they had to rely
on gestures and get across
what they could verbally.
"When I heard about
the signing I got interested
in it," he said. "I felt like


they missed out."
Morris remembers
two Vietnamese students
he taught while in San
Francisco. They had no
verbal skills, but he was
able to help them and they
were able to gain American
citizenship.
One day Morris passed
the male Vietnamese
student on the stairs and
signed to him, asking what
he was doing. The boy
signed "coat," his first word
after six months, Morris
said.
"I call it my spiritual


paycheck," he said.
Being an interpreter
has brought Morrris
many opportunities. He
was recently on National
Public Radio, interpreting
the phone calls for deaf
children's writer Ann
LaZotte.
"You didn't hear me, but
I was in the room signing
the listeners' questions for
her to answer," he said.
He admits his friend
was right when she offered
a job for less money, but he
still enjoys what he does.
"I'll never be a rich


man, but I really like that
feeling of serving your
community," he said.
In addition to his work
as an interpreter, Morris
is a professional artist.
He is an art consultant for
Newberry's Firehouse Art
Gallery, which will hold
an art show on Friday. His
work will be featured along
with other local artists.
"It's going to be great,"
he said.
Barbara Hendrix,
Main Street Organization
manager, agreed and added
that she cannot wait for

policy. Its purpose is to be
used as a tool to encourage
economic development in
the area.
For a business to
be considered for an
exemption, it must submit
an application to the city,
including a $500 fee to be
paid only upon approval.
Factors that determine
whether the business will
be granted an exemption,
and for how much, include
business type, how many
local jobs it will offer
"* initially and over time, as
well as the pay rates for
those positions.
David Ramsey, senior
director of economic
development for the
Council for Economic
Outreach at the Greater
Gainesville-Area Chamber
of Commerce, has been
helping the city plan and
implement the tax incentive
program.
A wide variety of
businesses can qualify,
Ramsey explained. The
only type that generally
wouldn't be considered
is retail, because initially,
retailers won't benefit the
goal of the tax breaks, which
is to encourage economic
growth and sustainability in
the community as a whole.
Retail stores won't flourish
without a customer base
of individuals with stable
incomes who can afford to
shop, Ramsey said.
Jobs have to come first,
which is why industry and
service-based businesses
are better suited to receive
the tax breaks. The city
has to bring in employers,
and then retail will want to
come in and will naturally
thrive if there are people
with extra money to spend,
he explained.
Ramsey called the
tax-exemption program
an "aggressive, up-front
incentive," and he said it's
the only one in Alachua

Ask Your Dentist

What is the difference between

calculus, tartar and plaque?


Q: What is the difference
between calculus, tartar and
plaque?
A: One of your mouth's
main enemies is plaque.
Teeming with bacteria, it is
a sticky, colorless film that
builds up on your teeth. Its
combination of saliva, mucus,
bacteria and food residue can
accumulate on the surface of
teeth and cause gum disease.
and decay. When you eat, the
bacteria transform the sugar
and starch in food to acids
that can erode tooth enamel.
That's the beginning of tooth
decay.
If you don't remove
plaque every day with careful
brushing and flossing, it will
combine with the minerals in


saliva to form tartar, a hard
deposit that can be removed
only at the dentist's office.
Tartar is also called calculus,
a term derived from the
Latin for "small pebbles."
Removal at the dentist's
office requires a technique-
called scaling. Your dentist
or hygienist will use a hand-
held instrument shaped like
a sickle, a curved spoon or
a file. They'll insert the
implement gently beneath
the gum line, press it firmly
against the tooth and pull
toward the crown to remove
the hardened plaque. Talk
with you dentist about ways
to prevent the buildup of
damaging plaque and tartar.

Santa Fe defeats Suwannee, loses to



Williston in District Championship


Raiders advance to regional playoffs


By THOMAS MORRELL
Today Sports Reporter
WILLISTON For the
second time in as many
years, the Williston Red
Devils defeated the Santa
Fe Raiders in the District
Championship title game.
The 2011 Class 3A
Boys Basketball District
5 Tournament was held
Feb. 11 and 12 at the No.
1 Seed Williston's home
gymnasium.
The decision for the No.
1 and 2 seeds was decided,
literally, by the flip of a
coin. Williston correctly
predicted the coin toss and
Santa Fe received the No. 2
seed in the tournament.
On Friday night
during the first round of
the tournament, Santa
Fe quickly handled the
Suwannee Bulldogs 70-47
to have the opportunity to
once again face Williston in
the District Championship
final the following evening.
Raider coach Elliot
Harris made it clear to his
players that each game was
important and to not take
any game lightly.
"I was confident that
we could come out here
and win. I'm happy with
the win and how our guys
played, but now we have
to come back and play for
the district championship,"
Harris said after defeating
Suwannee Friday night.
Santa Fe's C.J. Wakeley,
No. 24,- had another
impressive showing with 34
points. His teammate, and
fellow senior, Ashton Lee,
No. 11 put up a notable 15
points against the Bulldogs.


The tough match would
come Saturday night when
the Santa Fe Raiders would
face the Williston Red
Devils.
Despite the tight squeeze
for seating, the game lived
up to expectations. In ajam-
packed gymnasium spilling
over with passionate fans,
it quickly became clear that
these two teams have an
enthusiastic rivalry.
The Red Devils came
out strong, dominating
the first quarter. With a
tough man to man defense
and a fast-paced offense,
Williston seemed to control
the tempo of the game from
the beginning.
Williston High School's
Tre Wilson, No. 25, had 8
points in the first quarter
alone. Wilson would finish
the game with 16. But after
a hard-fought first quarter,
the Red Devils owned
the lead by only a 3 point
margin of 12-9.
With the second quarter
proving to be much of the
same story, the Red Devils
were able to keep the
Raiders at an arm's length
every time the score got
close.
With the lead down to
as little as 2 points in the
second quarter, the Red
Devils were able to continue
to score points and halt any
chances of a momentum
swing.
Wakeley, who finished
the night with 25 points,
received little help from
his teammates in scoring.
The next highest scorer on
Santa Fe was No. 4 Michael
Mulberry with 5 points.
After a low-scoring


half, the Red Devils, feeling
confident, entered the locker
room up 24-18.
With the second half,
Santa Fe seemed to gain
new life. In the third quarter,
Wakeley put up 10 more
points and Marcus Gaddy,
No. 2, added another 4
points to the total.
In the third quarter
alone the Raiders managed
to match the total amount
of points scored in the first
half. The Raiders' score
jumped from 18-36 from
the second to third quarter.
By the end of the third
quarter, the intensity of the
fans, coaches, and players
continued to rise.
In a fourth quarter that
seemed as though it would
end in a "photo finish," a
swing in momentum was
bad news for Santa Fe.
After just two minutes
into the fourth quarter, the
game was tied 40-40.
Harris said that
everything that could have
gone wrong went wrong.
Shots that normally drop,
didn't, and Williston
capitalized.
The Red Devils' Wilson
scored back to back lay-
ups as No. 3 James Monroe
crushed a 3-point shot, and
No. 1 Deteron Ross snagged
another lay-up.
In a matter of moments,
a tied score became a
deficit of nine points for the
Raiders.
"We have to take our
hats off to them," Harris
said. "They did a goodjob of
exploiting our weaknesses."
In what can only be
described as the "quicksand

On Jan. 31, 2011, President
Barack Obama signed a
proclamation naming February
2011, as National Teen Dating
Violence Awareness Month.
The President calls upon "all
Americans to support efforts in
their communities and schools,
and in their own families, to
empower young people to
develop healthy relationships
throughout their lives and to
engage in activities that prevent
and respond to teen dating
violence."


A message from the desk of


Sheriff Sadie Darnell


February Is National Teen Dating violence Awareness and Prevention Month


Every year, approximately
one in four teenagers reports being
the victim of verbal, physical,
emotional or sexual violence.
Victims of dating violence can
experience long-term behavioral
and health problems. Teens
who are involved in an abusive
relationship can perpetuate
dangerous negative patterns into
future relationships. Adolescents
and young adults are often
hesitant to report physical, sexual
or emotional abuse.
In order to prevent abusive


behavior before it starts, parents,
teachers and mentors must instill
the importance of mutual respect
in relationships. One way that
dating violence proliferates
is through the use of digital
technology such as cell phones,
email and social networking
websites. These are widely used
by teenagers in their everyday
lives, but also have a vast
potential for devastating abuse
such as stalking, harassment, and
other victimization.
Teens can receive immediate


confidential advice and/or
referrals from the National
Teen Dating Abuse Helpline
at 1-866-331-9474 or online at
www.loveisrepect.org. Other
resources available are ww.

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2011
B2I


An act of kindness


There's a trend in the
way that many people think
about being "religious."
They think that attending
church or just reading
the Bible at home will
fulfill the obligations of
that "religious" portion of
our human nature. Our
blending of religion and
politics is to be expected.
But, there's a danger if
we're oblivious to this
influence and allow it to
be the sole judge in how
we carry out our life as
Christians in thought,
word, and deed.
The Gospel of Saint
Matthew, chapter 22,
illustrates this in a parable
that Jesus tells. We're
tempted to focus on those
who were called by the
King to the marriage
supper that he had planned
for his son, and in who was
called and who wasn't or
why the one was thrown
into outer darkness. But, if
we concentrated on these
questions, we'd miss the
point of the passage and


what it's supposed to be
teaching us.
Jesus compares the
Kingdom of God, to. a
marriage supper in honor
of His Son, where a great
many guests, who by no
merits of their own, were
invited to share in His
joy. The invitation sent to
these people was an act df
kindness on the part of the
King. If he had wanted,
the King would have been
well within his rights to
have these peasants be
servants at the wedding.
This is important to realize
in the parable, because
the focus should be on
the King and His Son,
not on the fairness of the
invitation list-it was His
royal choice to invite who
He wanted to. But the
guests refused the offer.
"They would not come."
Again, the King, for
no other reason than His
goodness, sent out more
servants to bring guests to
His wedding supper for His
Son. Again, the invitation

was rejected. The King
judged and handed out the
penalty to those who had
acted in such a manner to
him.
This parable is actually'
the history of a nation,
not a person. Israel had
been chosen of all nations
to enjoy the fellowship
of God, but they refused
God's calling and began
to kill the messengers. So,
judgment came and the
nation was destroyed by
Assyrians, Babylonians,
Greeks, and then Romans!


They wouldn't submit to
God and became unwilling
slaves of men.
In the parable, the
King then sends out the
servants to people who
weren't on the first guest
list. They, in turn, accept
the invitation of their
King, who demonstrated
His unrelenting kindness
to the most undeserving of
people. It is, in the truest
sense of the word, the
grace of God that brings
the Gospel of Jesus Christ
to those who were lost
and nothing more than
beggars in the scope of
His Lordship. We can't
see anything worthy in
these new guests, but
we can once again learn
something of the King's
grace and mercy. He
loves His Son and wants
His entire Kingdom to
enjoy the blessedness of
communion with Him.
One nation stubbornly
rejected the offer of
communion with God.
Another people, who
weren't even a nation,
accepted the offer. And in
