Water rate


increase likely


in High Springs
By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS High
Springs residents will have
to find a way to stay afloat
despite higher billing rates in
the coming year.
Despite efforts to avoid
it, the High Springs City
Commission voted last week
to adopt a tentative budget
that includes a $3 monthly
rate increase for water,
making the base rate for
billing $6.03, rather than the
current $3.03.
Since the beginning of
August, the commission has
met numerous times to tackle
balancing the budget for
fiscal year 2010-2011.
Staff and commissioners

Don Loftus is growing 14 rows of muscadine grape vines, each several hundred
feet long, at his vineyard located east of Alachua.


A grape vineyard,

a full-time job
By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ALACHUA- When Don Loftus
began planning for his retirement
about five years ago, he had no idea he
would be working full-time at his own
grape vineyard. But as he got further
into the venture during his off-time he
soon realized just how much work' was
involved with maintaining the grape
growing operation.

ALACHUA Santa Fe
High School students will
have something to pass
.around to each other and
sign at the end of this school
year after all. Although a
yearbook for the 2010/11
school year was called off,
then on and then off again,
now there seems, to be
no question that the high
.school is going ahead.with
plans to have a yearbook.'
The tradition of binding


together a year's worth of
memories, from football
games to fundraisers, the
dreaded class photo and.
at least one snapshot of
your secret crush, has been
saved.
But, it was not saved by
the parents who protested
when they read the school

Bill Herschleb before the

Property taxes


down, Alachua


reduces

By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA Although
the subject of considerable
criticism over financial
woes in recent months, the
City of Alachua is planning
to keep its property tax rate
at 5.500 mills, the same as
last year.
Dropping property
values means the city
would have had to increase


budget
taxes to the "rollback
rate" of 5.9635 mills to
generate the Same amount
of property tax revenue as
it had last year. Instead
of moving the tax rate up,
the city commission and
administration opted to
cut the budget by the more
than $351,000 that it lost as
a result of falling property

City opts for fresh perspective on market


By GLENN COINE
Today Reportei
HIGH SPRINGS -
Support local business, buy
local produce, eat local food,
promote sustainability.
These are the
fundamental concepts
driving community farmer's
markets nationwide. This
pro-community, go green
initiative usually evokes
connotations of the, 'Why
can't we all just get along?'
hippie mentality.
But over the past several


weeks in High Springs, the
city-owned farmer's market
has been at the center of a
heated controversy, and it
has become the platform
across which bitter
accusations have been
hurled.
Though some points of
contention still appear to fall
in a grey area, the bulk of
the debate has settled. After
listening to her presentation
during its Sep. 9 meeting,
the City Commission voted
to accept a bid from Maria


Antela to become the new
farmer's market manager.
City looks for new
options, cuts ties between
Main St. and the market
For the past two years,
the local Main Street
Program, a private, non-
profit organization, was
contracted by the city to
manage the market.
When commissioners
were presented with
the option to renew the
contract, which expires


Sept. 30, with Main Street,
they voted not to, which in
effect put the contract for
management out to open
bid. It was not a competitive
bid, however, in the sense
that the city declared its
terms for compensation.
Anyone could apply for
consideration as long as
they were willing to accept
the rates as non-negotiable.
Maria Antela was
the only one to apply by
the deadline, and despite
a request from a Main
Street representative to be


considered even though
they missed the cutoff,
the commission opted to
adhere to its own rules
and only consider Antela.
The city attorney pointed
out that if the commission
was not satisfied with her,
the contract could be put
out for bid again, at which
time Main Street, as well as
anyone else, could apply.
But it was apparent
commissioners liked what
they heard because after
listening.to her presentation,

Q: What is an oral
pathologist?
A: An oral pathologist
is a dentist who has gone
on for further education
and specializes in studying
tissue from the mouth and
teeth to diagnose disease
and prescribe treatment.
Oral pathology is one of
numerous areas of specialty
that some dentists choose
to enter after completing
their basic dental education.
An oral pathologist is also
called an oral maxillofacial
pathologist.
When a general dentist
comes across a condition in
your mouth, he may choose
to remove a piece of tissue -
called taking a biopsy and


send it to an oral pathologist
for examination. It is the
job of the oral pathologist to
determine if the tissue sample
is cancerous or infectious.
All dentists go through
four years of dental school,
earning either a Doctor of
Dental Surgery (DDS) or
Doctor of Dental Medicine
(DDM). There is no
difference in the degrees.
Most dentists then go on
for post-graduate training,
either in a residency program
at a hospital or in further
education to become a dental
specialist. Talk with your
dentist about the various
areas of specialty that are
available to you if you need
them.

Restaurant owner




wants median removed


By AMANDA HILL
Today Reporter
Newberry The owner
of Newberry's Backyard
BBQ stood before the
city commission Monday
night and asked to have a
median on SW 254th Street
removed so that he could
add a pick-up area to his
restaurant.
"We're trying to keep
our doors open," he said
of why he wanted to add
the new feature to his
restaurant.
Backyard BBQ has
being doing its take-out
business through a side
door that faces SW 254th
Street, requiring customers
to pull in and wait for their
food to be brought to them.
Voglio was warned by the
Newberry Fire Department
that the practice was a
safety hazard that could
disrupt the flow of traffic
on a street that is already
narrow due to the placement
of the median.
Voglio added that that
the island on the median is a
"menace" that has become
a run-down breeding
ground for -termites. He


said that Backyard BBQ
has donated money to try
to improve the appearance
of the island, only to see it.
deteriorating again.
The general consensus
among the citizens that
showed up to discuss
Voglio's proposal was that
although they enjoy eating
at Backyard BBQ, they do
not think that the median
should be removed to help
its take-out business.
Citizens cited traffic
and safety concerns and
historical preservation
among the reasons for
keeping the median.
Charles Jones, who
lives behind Backyard
BBQ on SW 254th Street,
said that he was concerned
about the precedent that
would be set by changing
a public right-of-way for,
commercial purposes .
"If we do it for one,
then we're going to have to
do it for all," he said.
Joann Humburg,
another resident of SW
254th Street, said that
"there can and should be
other options that are less
egregious to the citizens."


She suggested that
Voglio put a parking space
in the back of the restaurant
for customers who are
picking up orders.
Gene Elliott, a member
of the beautification
committee, said that while
he was unhappy with the
current state of the island
on the median, he did not
think that it should be
removed.
"We think that with a
little bit of work, the design
could be reincorporated and
that could be a beautiful
piece of ground again,"
he said of the committee's
stance on the issue.
After hearing the
citizens' comments, the
commissioners were in
agreement that the median
should stay.
. City Commissioner
Albana Lawson
recommended that
Voglio look into making
arrangements for a takeout
space in the back of the
restaurant.

Cook says the grapes came
late, delaying the harvest.
"We started back Aug. 6,
which is about two to three
weeks later than usual. By
Sept. 1, usually we're done,
but now there are still a few
green grapes."
While the fruit is- also

sweet."
His wife and friend
help him maintain the six
varieties, going through the
maintenance in winter, and
then leaving the grapes to
grow.
While there are Fry
grapes in the batch, Cook is
not entirely sure about the
other varieties among the
crop.
"I couldn't tell you the
names," said Cook looking
off into the distance. "The
vineyard was started about
24 years ago."
Alongside shelves of

They were able to
organize a yearbook

from designing the cover

Health insurances


costs up $
Newberry, the city is facing
the same obstacle as many
others across, the state -
figuring out where to make
the cuts.
The budget for the
2009/10 fiscal year was
about $17,396,000. The
2010/11 budget will be
within $40,000 of that,
Newberry City Manager
Keith Ashby said.
Ashby said that cuts in
several departments and a
$700,000 grant for repaving
madeit possible to keep the
budget roughly the same
size, despite the reduction
in state tax revenues and
property tax revenues. In
total, the city is getting
more than $1 million in
grants for the 2010/11 fiscal
year, he said.
The city was hit with a
22 percent employee health
insurance hike. On Monday,
commissioners scrapped a
plan that would have had
each employee contribute
$40 per month to their
health insurance. Through
other cuts, the city was
able to absorb the increase
in health insurance costs,
which rose by $35,000 this
year.
An increase in funding
for lime rock to maintain
grated roads has also been
worked into the budget, but
how much can be allocated
remains unknown until
other portions of the budget
are finalized. /
"I'm very proud of the
fact that last year's and
this year's tax rates are the
same," Ashby said.
He added that the grant
writer that he hired 2.5
years ago has really paid
off.

"I have repeat customers

City attorneys to



defend Amendment 3


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
GAINESVILLE- An
Alachua County judge
ruled that the Gainesville
City Attorney's Office will
be allowed to defend the
constitutionality of the
proposed county charter
Amendment 3.
The 'home rule'
amendment, as it is known,
would require a majority
approval countywide
as well as within the
municipality effected to
pass future amendments
affecting the powers of
municipalities.
Joe Little, a Gainesville
attorney and professor at
UF's Levin College of
Law, filed suit against the
legality of Amendment 3 in
July, as the representative
of plaintiff Dwight E.
Adams, a retired UF
physics professor.
On Sept. 2, a motion
was filed to grant the
Gainesville City Attorney
permission to join the
lawsuit in order to argue for
the constitutionality of the
amendment.
The defendants named
by the lawsuit are the
Alachua County Board of
Commissioners and the
Alachua County Supervisor
of Elections.
Both of these parties
are represented by the
county attorney, and the
commission gave council
instructions to only speak
to their responsibility
to follow the direction,
of the Charter Review
Commission, which
recommended Amendment
3 for placement on the
November ballot earlier
this summer.
The county attorney was
told to take a neutral stance
on the constitutionality of
the amendment.


The City of Gainesville
has taken the stance that
citizens should not be
denied the right to decide
whether they want this
change to the charter, and
the city attorney will speak
for the nine municipalities,
including Gainesville, that
are in favor of defending
this position.
The nine cities
originally entered into an
agreement together with
the Alachua County League
of Cities to jointly fund
the defense, but during a


High Springs commission
meeting last week, City
commissioner and League
of Cities president Larry
Travis announced that the
League of Cities will be
covering the entire legal
bill.

Whys of a high school




curriculum


I understand the
math. Well, okay, I don't
understand math, but
I understand why one
should t to
understand
math.
A high-
s.-c hoo o
6d'ti b dci oi g lumt
s h o u 1 d


healthy dose of
math because
you never
know when Laura
sto m e o n e
someone
might ask you to solve a
binomial equation. Not
that a normal person
would remember how to
do a binomial equation if
he hadn't been doing them
every day of his life, but
the general knowledge
should be somewhere in
your subconscious, ready
to be accessed at any
given moment.
I understand, also, that
history should be part of a
well-rounded high school
education. This is so that
the mistakes of the past
can be avoided in the
future. The problem with
history is that the lessons
are learned in the details,


not the overview which
is generally taught in the
average history class.
What can you learn from
knowing
who the
winner
was at
Bu n k er,
Hill uniles
you know
why and
how they
won?
What
good is
Snyder knowing
that
Abraham Lincoln was
assassinated unless you
know why? Iftnot for the
why, we could assume
that he was shot simply
because he was president.
Therefore, the lesson
might be that if one wants
to live, he shouldn't be
president. The "why"
helps you decide whether
the causes were worth the
outcome. I think Lincoln
would have said it was.
English is certainly a
must for a good education
because communication
is the basis of civilization.
We want civilization,
right? Civilization is
what produced deodorant,


mouthwash and toilet
paper. So, okay, we need
English.
Science is appropriate
as well. It's important
to know how our world
works and why something
might spontaneously
combust. Science rocks!
S The subject I don't
understand is the foreign
language requirement,
My son has to choose a
foreign language to study
for two years. The boy
barely has English licked.
Now we're going to throw
a whole new language
into the machine that is
his brain and totally clog
up the works.
I say his brain is a
machine because he is
a very black and white
thinker. It either is or it
isn't, there is no middle.
English, itself, requires
a creative thinker. If
breaks so many of
its own rules that we
have to create rhymes
for the extenuating
circumstances.
"I before E" that's
straightforward enough,
but it's not precisely true.
We have to add,
"except after C."
Still not good.enough,


there is a caveat: "or
when sounding like A"
With examples: "Like
in neighbor and weigh."
This is not black and
white. This is multi-
colored polka dots.
Speaking of polkas,
my son has chosen to learn
German, the language
of his ancestors. This, I
think, is a good choice for
him, because the German
language often sounds as
though one is hawking up
a loogid. There is no one
who knows how to hawk
a loogie better than my
son.
I :do, however,
foresee some challenges,
especially with the whole
"I before E" thing. In
German, I before E
sounds like E even
without a C, and I'm
not sure if there are any
exceptions or caveats.
It's going to be a
tough year.

Deputies to canvass Newberry on Friday


It is being investigated
as a potential burglary
interrupted because her
house was left in a state of
disarray.
Deputies will be
canvassing neighborhoods
and businesses throughout
the city of Newberry on
Friday starting at 7 a.m. in
hopes of finding more leads
in the case.
"Somewhere out
there some person knows
something about this
attack," Maynard said.
One question that
remains is why a burglar
would need to savagely


beat an elderly woman in
order to rob the home.
"There was absolutely
no reason for it," Maynard
said. "Anyone could have
walked in her house, taken
anything they wanted and
walked out."
Anyone with
information about this case
can call ACSO at 352-955-
1818. Callers may remain
anonymous and may be
eligible to receive a reward
of up to $1,000 by calling
Crime Stoppers at 352-372-

LOFTUS: $1 g
Continue from page A 1
Florida earlier this summer, Loftus
is dedicating his retirement to the
Loftus Family Farm which includes
the muscadine grape vineyard he has
built and grown from scratch. In
2004, Loftus first started converting
the field that once grew persimmons
into 1.5 acres of grapes.
The u-pick farm is one of a
handful in the area and is open to the
public. For now, the Loftus Family
Farm is specializing in the ison and
supreme varieties of muscadine
grapes. Loftus said he plans to
expand the vineyard by another
half-acre, probably including
golden muscadine varieties. For
now, he has his hands full, carefully
attending to the 14 rows of grape
vines, each several hundred feet long
and none of which are sprayed with
potentially dangerous chemicals and


ets you a pound of fresh u-pick grapes


pesticides.
Indigenous to the southeast
region of North America, muscadine
grapes are ripe for the picking right
now, especially at Loftus' vineyard,
where thousands of pounds of the
juicy dark purple and black grapes
await eager pickers.
The vineyard had already
become a popular spot among many
people who are aware of the u-pick
farm. Loftus credits some of that
success to the well-manicured rows
of grapes and relaxing atmosphere at
his family's farm. Loftus said many
pickers like to eat the grapes as they
are, some use them for producing
wine and others for making jelly
and sauces and freezing for later
consumption.
The Loftus Family Farm keeps
it simple, charging an even $1 per


pound of grapes.
The address for the vineyard is
1.5585 NW 29 Street, Gainesville.
East of Alachua on NW 156"
Avenue, the farm is at the midway
point between State Road 121 and
County Road 231.
Generally open from mid-
August to early October, pickers are
welcome on Saturdays from 9 a.m.
until 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 1
until 6 p.m. Appointments are also
available Monday through Friday
for anyone wishing to arrange a
picking party.
Additional photos, health
benefits and uses for muscadine
grapes and information are available
at LoftusFamilyFarm.com.

May expressed, he joined
in the unanimous vote to
accept Antela's bid to be
the new farmer's market
manager.
"I'm very eager and

going," Antela later said in
an interview.

New manager ready to
"hit the ground running"
Antela's top priority
is to change the attitude
associated with the market.

Antela's confidence
in the ability of the High
Springs farmer's market to
succeed is evident.
She referred to what
she felt was one of the
major points made by
Fidel Delgado, of the U.S.
Department of Agriculture,
who made a presentation
earlier that day about
the viability of markets
nationwide.
She pointed out how
he stressed the growing
trend of local sustainability,
and 'agreed that for High
Springs, that is key. "We
have to support ourselves,"


she said.
By taking Delgado's
advice on how to expand the
city market by establishing
a permanent facility, Antela
said that in the future
the community could
contribute to a long-term
investment in the economic
success of local farmers.
City staff requested
a visit from Delgado
through the USDA's
Agricultural Marketing
Service, which manages the
Farmers Market Promotion
Program, a federally funded
grant program set up to
encourage and facilitate the
growth and sustainability of
local markets.
Delgado spent a day
meeting with local farmers,
business owners and long-
time High Springs residents
to discuss their likes and
dislikes pertaining to the
current market.
He said some of the
most prominent complaints
were issues of accessibility
and visibility-essentially,
the location. And like so
many other things, he said,


funding is a main obstacle.
But the point he
harped on when he spoke
before the commission.
as Antela later echoed in
her presentation, was the
importance of making it
about the community.
It's the peoples'
market-the vendors and
the city residents should
all have a say, they both
agreed.
Antela said she
welcomes questions and
suggestions from anyone
who has something to
contribute, including the
Main Street Program.
She said as far as she's
concerned, there is no
looking back and no
negativity.
Antela said anyone
should feel free to contact
her to talk about the future
of the farmer's market by
either calling her at her
home, 386-454-8145, or by
e-mailing her at mantela@

Top 10 List of SunState Advantages

#1 You belong At a bank, you are a customer. At SunState, you're a member, and you belong.

#2 SunState works for you As a SunState member your own part of the credit union. SunState employees work for
you. Their primary goal is to make sure all your needs are met.

#3 You pay lower interest on loans and earn higher dividends on deposits Banks consistently are among the most
profitable companies in the world. They are in bluiness to make money for their shareholders. Whereas SunState is a hot-
for-profit organization and any profits are returned to you in the form of lower fees, higher dividends, and improved service.

#4 People, not profits, are the No. 1 priority Members-not money-are SunState's most valuable asset. At the
credit union, you're much more than just an account number.

#5 Your money is protected at SunState Like bank deposits, money in SunState is insured for at least $250,000
per account. Instead of the FDIC, which insures bank deposits, the coverage is provided by the National Credit Union
Administration, but both agencies are backed by the full faith and credit of the federal government.

#6 SunState can help you make better financial choices Whether it's buying a car or home, building an emergency
fund, or planning retirement, you can turn to SunState for the facts to make wise choices. Part of SunState's philosophy is
ensuring that members understand financial options.

#7 SunState is for everyone, including the Little Guy SunState is for all people, Credit unions serve everyone-from
the elderly on small, fixed- incomes to single mothers to well-to-do families. At SunState everyone is welcome.

#8: Convenience SunState is located in your communities-including regions that other financial institutions choose
not to serve. SunState offers many or all of the same services banks do, but SunState focuses their attention on individual
consumers.

#9 We listen to you SunState gives you the opportunity to make suggestions and vote for the board of directors. You
can even run for a position on the board of directors. No matter how large (or small) your account balance is, you have
one vote, which means it's not those who have the most money who are running the show.

#10 SunState is a part of your community Whether it's sponsoring local community events, or working to educate all
consumers about better ways to manage money, SunState strives to make a positive difference in our communities.

B2 ALACHUA COUNTY TODAY RELIGION THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2010


Objects of the Father's love


In the Gospel of Saint
John, 16:23, f.f., Jesus says,
"At that day ye shall ask
in my name: and I say not
unto you, that I will pray
the Father for you: For the
Father himself loveth you,
because ye have loved me,
and have believed that I
came out from God. Jesus
is referring to the day of
Pentecost when the Holy
Ghost, the Comforter, is
sent from God to mankind.
The gift of the Holy
Spirit and the creation
of the Church brought a
new, intimate, and happy
relationship that united
God with both personal and
spiritual bonds to those,
who made in His image,
become by.grace, partakers
of His character.
The "objects of
the Father's love" is a
description given to those
that the Father regards
with affection. So, who
is it that the Father loves?
That's anyone who loves
Christ. Without a doubt
the apostles loved their
Master and the events
of their lives proved the
seriousness of their love.


This description also can be
applied to Christians who
haven't seen Jesus in the
.body, but see Him through
the eyes of faith. .Those
who are true followers of
Christ and not just in name,
cherish a warm and grateful
love towards
the Son of God, ,
who Himself
loved them
and bought
them with His
precious blood.
Their love
is displayed
in how they
receive His
doctrine, their
obedience to THE VEI
His commands, LEA
and their All Saint
imitation of His Church, (
holy example. A paris
Also, the Christian
objects of the Ch
Father's love
are those who believe in
Christ's Divine mission. If
any man thinks of Christ
as being One who is "of
the earth," or who's just
a development of human
thinking, or who has no
special and Divine authority


4.
S

sh
Iu
u


to save and to rule, can't be
considered a Christian and
they shut themselves off
from the blessing of God,
which is only accessible
to true Christians. Those
who think of Jesus as the
One who came forth from
the Father,
commissioned
and equipped
by the Father
to be the
Saviour of
men, and
who not only
think of Him
correctly,
but also act
towards Him
JOHN E. with the same
URE respect and
Anglican humility,
ainesville. may consider
h of the themselves to
Episcopal be the objects
rch of the Divine
Father's love.
Love and belief are
both necessary. Love takes
precedence but belief in
Christ must come before
love. Without a doubt, the
loving soul learns to believe
more richly and fully in our
Divine, unequalled Friend


and Saviour.
The character of the
Father's love comes from
his caring nature. God's
love isn't a result of our
love. "We love Him,
because He first loved us. "
Christ's love of Divine
compassion feeds the flame
of love in our hearts. It
also manifests itself in the
intercession of the Son.
The love of God isn't
caused by the intercession
of our Divine Advocate; for
those who believe in Christ,
it's the love of satisfaction
and contentment. The
Father sees, in the friends
and followers of Christ,
the same moral features
and expressions that
He's delighted by in His
Son. This view of God is
extremely and distinctively
Christian. The God we
worship is a God who
can love mart, whose love


flows forth in streams of
compassion towards all
men, but whose favor is
revealed to those who
display the same moral
standards as His own
beloved Son.
Do we need to ask
for proof of the Father's
love? Christ encourages
us to ask for what we need
from Him who is able to
supply all of our needs.
What greater evidence
can there be of fatherly
and filial love than when a
sqn can ask anything of a
parent who has confidence
in his child and who has
the means of satisfying
and pleasing him? This is
the relationship between
the heavenly Father and
those He adopts into His
family-He wants to grant
the requests of His children,
and this sheds light on
the Scriptural doctrine of


intercession.
Christ is the Advocate
with God, but this doesn't
mean that He has to
persuade Him not to be too
severe before acting with
generosity. What's shown
here is the appointment of
Divine love and the channel
of Divine favor. Here in the
Gospel of Saint John, Christ
isn't saying that He "will
not pray the Father for us."
The point He's making is
that He wants His Disciples,
and us, to understand that
the Father's love is free
and that He wants to give
us the enjoyment of all
good things. So, we're
encouraged to bring our
petitions to God, in the
Name of Christ and be
assured that blessings will
be given to us.

Ben led Mr Lee's horse into a stall filled with clean straw. He
removed the bridle and latched the stall door. There was still an
hour of daylight so Ben took a rake and began cleaning the stable.
As he worked, he could hear the sounds of laughter coming up
the street He knew it was his friends, Will and Davey.
When the two boys came into the stable, they were excited. Ben
laid down his rake so he could talk to his friends. He asked what
the excitement was about. They made Ben promise not to tell.
Then Davey told Ben that he and Will had become spy catchers.
Davey said that the British were all over town, spying on
the convention.
People were saying that the men meeting in the State House
were rebels who would run the British soldiers back to England.
The British were trying to find out what the delegates were up to.
Ben asked his friends what they did as spy catchers. They said it
was a secret. But they told him they were going to meet behind
the old church at 9 o'clock that night. If Ben wanted to join the
spy catchers, they said he should come to the church.
As the three boys stood whispering in the stable, they heard
someone clearing his throat. Ben looked up and saw a tall stranger
standing in the stable door. Before Ben could say anything, his
grandfather stepped up and asked the stranger what he wanted.
The man said he had come to rent a horse and saddle. He said
he needed it overnight.
Grandfather told Ben to go to the corral and bring Ginger for the
man to see. Will and Davey stepped aside while their friend went
after the horse.
Soon Ben led a little brown and white mare into the stable. The
stranger said the horse would do fine, so Ben and his grandfather
put a saddle on Ginger's back.

Things to Think About and Do -'
A. Why did people think the men meeting in the
Philadelphia State House were rebels? What is a rebel?
Is a rebel good or bad?
B. Do you have a horse? Do you have a friend who has
a horse? There are two pieces of equipment for horses
mentioned in this chapter. What are they? What is
a tack room?

Ben Collins and his two friends are America's
first "Young Patriots." Self-appointed spy catchers,
they help America fight for independence. At his
grandfather's livery stable in Philadelphia in 1776, Ben
meets delegates to the Continental Convention. From
them, he learns the value of education and is button-
busting proud when John Adams calls Ben and his
friends "Young Patriots."








ly
The man handed Grandfather some money,
mounted the little mare, and rode off down
the street.
When the man was gone, Grandfather told
Ben to finish his raking and then go on home
for supper. Grandfather said he would finish
his chores in the blacksmith shop before he
quit for the day.
After his grandfather returned to the blacksmith
shop, Ben huddled with his friends again. Will
said he thought the man who had rented the
horse was a spy. He was afraid the man had
heard them talking about being spy catchers.
Even Davey believed the man looked suspicious.
Ben didn't know what to think about this spy business. He knew
the men who were meeting in the State House were keeping
secrets, but he didn't know the secrets were so important.
As Ben picked up his rake and went back to work, Davey and
Will turned to leave. Before.they left, they reminded Ben to be
at the old church at 9 o'clock if he wanted to be a spy catcher.

Haven Transitions: A hand to hold

when faced with a serious illness


By DIANA WAYNE
Special to
Alachua County Today


Every month, Haven
Transitions provides
emotional and social
support to more than 275
people who can benefit
from assistance and
companionship when
dealing with a serious
illness. Haven Transitions
can help by providing
someone who cares to call
and check on them, answer
questions, stop by for a
visit, touch base with family
members, and provide
moral support to caregivers.
Haven Transitions
provided services free of
charge to nearly 1,000 in-
dividuals and their families
last year.
Bill, 94, appreciated his
weekly visits with Rick,
a retired veterinarian and
*minister who read to him.
Bill spent his time in front
of the television, his win-
dow, or in the hallway, so
when Rick came to visit,
their conversations help
relieve Bill's boredom.
"Mostly we're a, couple of
guys talking," said Rick.
"He's a very intelligent
man. I've enjoyed hearing
him reminisce about grow-
ing up in Georgia, plowing
with mules and hopping on
freight trains as a kid." On
good days they ,went for
a stroll. Bill's daughter in
California said he looked
forward to Rick's visits.
"He told me 'thank you' for
setting this up," she said.
"This is a great service."
After a series of strokes
left Florence, 93, with
dementia, she moved in
with her daughter Carolyn.
But Carolyn had chronic


health problems of her own,
including diabetes. She
didn't see well and couldn't
drive. Her doctor said she
was no longer in a position
to care for her mother.
When Florence moved to a
nursing home, mother and
daughter relied on a Haven
Transitions volunteer to
keep tabs on them between
visits. Florence enjoyed
hearing the volunteer's
kind, familiar voice, and
Carolyn was grateful
someone called to check on
them.
Very often, a caring
phone call supports
independence. Warren, 87,
had esophageal cancer but
no plans to take it easy. He
planned to continue mowing
his own lawn and spending
time in his workshop. "I will
be the first to say so ifI need
help," he said. A Transitions
volunteer called him once
a week. Hearing from her
made him feel good and also
provided peace of mind for
his daughters, who lived out
of town. "I'm very grateful
for what Haven Transitions


does for me," he said.
Bobby, a fiber artist,
wanted to continue working
with her hands. Haven
Transitions put her in touch
with a volunteer who helped
with her art and became a
friend. "We have the same
tastes in literature and
movies, and watch ballet
videos together," Bobby
said. "I can't tell you how
much Haven Transitions
has helped me. I have
benefitted so much."
To ask for help through
Haven Transitions, call
352-692-5133 or 1-800-
330.2858.
