The looming question:



Will Drumm return?


By GLENN COINE
T,', I, iy Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS The city's two
newly elected commissioners are not
opposed to the idea of bringing back
former City Manager Jim Drumm,
making it a possibility that he could
be rehired.
High Springs Commissioner-
elect Sue Weller said there's a lot
to discuss before she could decide


whether she wants
him to return to the
position.
"I don't know
yet," she said,
"But I'm not ruling
anything out at this
Drumm point."
Possible
scenarios under which Drumm might
return include a majority vote by the


commission to reinstate him, or if
the position was openly advertised
according to the city's usual hiring
process, he could apply for the job
and be considered like any other
applicant.
Weller is. sure the issue will
come up one way or another, but she
doesn't yet know what she'll do.
There needs to be open, public

on the path to annexation by
the City ofAlachua.
The 146.23-acre site,
broken up over three tax
parcels got approval :on
first reading from the
Alachua City Commission
Monday. Although the'
battery manufacturing
facility is considered by


many to be in the City of
Alachua, the one-time
major employment center
has never been within the
city's corporate limits.
A concern among city
leaders about contamination
at the site has long been a
major factor in keeping the
property outside of the City
ofAlachua's boundaries.

. _


Duty, Honor, Country
Should we be involved in the hostilities
in Iraq and Afghanistan? ShouldAmerica's
military women be actively engaged in
combat and serving on the front lines?
More questions... How much should
America spend now and in the future
in supporting these two Middle East
countries? Should domestic spending on
social programs be drastically reduced to
pay for rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan?
Regrettably, these questions continue
to polarize Americans all across the
country. As we observe Veterans
Day on Nov. II, we must not focus
entirely on these politically-charged
questions without remembering in awe
that Amerida's finest, our fathers and
mothers. sons' and daughters, brothers
and sisters, relatives, friends, co-workers'
and classmates are unashamedly making
tremendous sacrifices in the name of duty,
honor, country.
These dedicated patriots do not
politicize their role as protectors in
adherence to duty, honor, country. Many
are making the ultimate sacrifice by laying
. down their lives in "paying it forward" for
all Americans. Regardless of whomever is
president, most recently, Bush and Obama,
the code of these patriotic Americans
remains duty, honor, country.
This beautiful code is not predicated
on any particular ethnic or racial heritage,
socioeconomic status, political ideology
or religious persuasion. Rather, this
Code, or creed, is an "all inclusive" time-
honored American tradition that has
guided our brave military men and women
as they courageously shed their precious
blood on the hallowed battlefields in the
wars fought throughout our history. The-
tradition of service in the name of duty,
honor, country is alive and well today.
No matter how each of us personally
feels about the political implications
surrounding the wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan, we need to embrace, without
the slightest hint of condemnation, our
military personnel. who are making a
gargantuan commitment in keeping our
country free and safe. It is quite simply the


right thing to do.
DUTY, HONOR, COUNTRY! What
more can we ask of our military men and
women? On Veterans Day this year, we
should offer each and every one of these
patriots a sincere thank you for being our
champions, our heroes, our protectors as
well as the personification of everything
that is good about these United States.
Fellow Americans, I want you to
know it is okay to shed a tear or two this
Veterans Day .when you hear our national
anthem being played or sung or when you
hear someone bellowing out "God Bless
America" in song. Our veterans and those
military men and women currently serving
in uniform have earned the right for us to
show our love, respect .and gratitude to
them for ensuring w, continue to live in
the greatest country on earth.
You might also want to take the time to
shed a few tears for the men and women
who have died over the years in keeping
us free in obeying their sacred creed of
duty, honor, country. Amen and God bless
America!
Proud to be an American,
Robert W. Wilford

The Southern Showcase of

a learning and character building
experience for the band students who
began their day at 6 a.m. and left the
grounds at 11 p.m., it also allows for
the Raider Regiment to bring in money
toward their yearly expenses.
The band has an active boosters club,
consisting of volunteers and parents,
some whose children have graduated
high school.
"The Boosters are incredibly
important," said Bisco. "We wouldn't be
able to leave school without them."
The Raider Regiment and their
boosters raise about $100,000 a year to
go toward travel, upkeep of instruments

other things. The Southern Showcase
helps to offset some of those .costs.
The students, parents and volunteers
put in countless hours, understanding hard
work and the importance of planning.
Even the participating marching bands


participated in that lesson, as each group
created eight minute routines to perform.
They were rewarded with audience

the students that participate.
"I-just want to continue to see them

The Newberry Main Street Organization, which hosted
the recent Fall Market Festival and Friday Fling as a
way to energize the downtown business community,
was named Florida Main Street Program of the Month
for November 2010. SunState FCU employees Brad
Walden and Cassandra Davis team up to build a

third world country.


Resources. As part of
the Bureau of Historic
Preservation, Florida Main
Street focuses bn preserving
the state's historic retail
districts.
"Newberry Main
Street has proven that
historic preservation is an
achievable goal for small
towns and communities,"
said Interim Secretary of
State Dawn K. Roberts in a
Nov.5 press release.
According to the Florida
Department of State,
Newberry has benefitted
from 162 public and private
reinvestments, 37 new
businesses, 108 new,jobs
and 4,800 volunteer hours
since it became a Main
Street community.
This is the second time
that Newberry has received
this honor since it was
designated a Main Street
community in 2006. The
first was in 2008: Selection
for the award is based
on active participation in
the Florida Main Street
program.
"With so many of
Florida's historical
resources located in small
towns like Newberry, the
Florida Main Street program
has worked to identify and
assist these communities in
preserving their historical,
cultural and architectural
heritage," Roberts said.
Newberry has also been
recognized as a model of


a successful Main Street
community in a 2010 study
called Economic Impacts
of Historical Preservation
in Florida. The report,
which was published by the
Center for Governmental
Responsibility at the
University of Florida
and the Center for Urban
Policy Research at Rutgers
University, focused on
rehabilitation, heritage
tourism, history museums,
the Florida Main Street
program and historic
preservation grants.
The study found that
historical preservation
benefits the state of
Florida by creating
jobs, contributing to tax
collections and bringing in
millions of tourists. It also
determined that properties
in historic districts maintain
value better than those in
non-historic districts.
According to the report,
the Florida Main Street
program is bringing historic
downtown areas back to
life.
"Investments through
the Florida Main Street
program are revitalizing
historic downtown and
original commercial
corridors, thus bringing
citizens, visitors and
dollars back to the heart of
communities throughout the
state," it said.
The study spotlighted

LURAVILLE A piece of the
land and waters he was passionate
about is going to be named in honor
ofWes Skiles. -
In wake of his recent death, a
longtime friend of his, Mimi A. Drew,
Secretary for the Department of
Environmental Protection, initiated
a request to have a Florida state park
renamed for Skiles.
A High Springs native, Skiles
spent his life exploring, mapping,
photographing and filming springs


and underwater caves in North
Florida and around the world. He
also avidly promoted the preservation
of Florida's natural ecosystems -
especially its unique springs.
He died in July while filming at a
reef a few miles off the South Florida
coast. Fellow divers found him on
the ocean floor motionless after he
had indicated he was surfacing, and
the official cause of death is still
unknown. He was 52.
On Nov. 16, there will be a
special ceremony to reopen Peacock
Springs State Park, which is located
in Luraville, near Live Oak, with its


new name.
According to Florida Park Service
information director Jessica Sims, the
event will include guest speakers and
the unveiling of the park's new sign.
The ceremony starts at 11 a.m. and
will take place near Orange Grove
Spring in the park.
The event is open to the public but
space will be limited.
The Skiles family, she said, has
been instrumental in arranging it and
will be participating in the event.

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


Sealants
Q: What are sealants?
A: Sealants are a liquid
coating a dentist applies to
protect the pits and fissures
of teeth. Back teeth, in
particular, have pits and
fissures because those teeth
are designed for crushing and
chewing .food. The uneven
terrain of those teeth is
particularly vulnerable to the
development of cavities. The
good news, though, is that if
cavities, have not developed
by the time a person is in her
early 20's, it is not likely they
will. So it's for the younger
person that sealants can be
useful.
The procedure is
perfectly painless no
needles and no drilling. The
dentist will surround the


tooth he's working on with
cotton balls and dry the tooth.
The dentist will then apply a
dilute acid liquid or gel that is
used to etch slightly into the
enamel. Over the etched area
the dentist will apply a liquid
plastic that will seep into
the etched surface, attach
to the enamel and harden.
Some sealants harden by
themselves in less than one
minute. Others harden after
being exposed to ultra-violet
light for a few seconds.
The resulting seal prevents
bacteria from getting into
the protected pit or fissue.
Talk with your dentist aboit
whether you or your children
might be candidates for
sealants.

training builds helping hands


Special to
Alachua County Today
GAINESVILLE
SunState Federal Credit
Union (SunState FCU)
recently partnered with the
CU Philanthropy Group,
to provide employees with
a truly unique training and
team building exercise.
Ninety nine credit union
participants assembled 33
fully functional prosthetic
hands during the Helping
Hands program. The event
was part of SuaState's
annual training day.
SunState FCU became
the latest credit union
nationally, to participate in
the Credit Union Helping
Hands program. In teams.
of three, credit union
employees worked together
to assemble the prosthetic
hands destined for victims
of land-mines, as the central
.exercise in a team building
and process improvement
program.
This was "a huge win-
win; probably the best
team building exercise'
we've ever done; and in
doing it, we attained the
additional pleasure of
helping someone else,"
'said SunState FCU CEO
Jim Woodward. "What
S a powerful way to build
teamwork," echoed Vice-
President of Marketing
SRobert Hart. "It's a

rewarding exercise that
helps you take a very real
look at how your teams
truly interact. Not only
is there valuable self-
discovery, but' helping to
dramatically improve a
person's quality of life at
the same time is a powerful
thing."
The prosthetic hands
built by* SunState :FCU
staff during their program
will be -distributed and
fitted globally at no cost to
recipients through Odyssey


Teams, Inc. and Rotary
International. Photos of
each assembly team will
accompany the hands to
their final destination,
where lives will be
positively impacted by the
power of this innovative
event.
"Once the teams
figured out what they were
building, and then where
the prosthetic hands were
going, a regular team
building exercise became a
truly life changing event,"


said SinState FCU Senior
Vice -President Joe Bour.
"In little over an hour, each
team had built a hand for
someone that needed it to
survive in a developing
.country. The message that
just a little effort on our
part, and a few minutes
of our time, cap mean the
world to our members,
really hit home. I can't
say enough good things on
so many levels about the
Helping Hands project."

Utility line to cost Waldo $5 million


By BEADIEHL
Today Reporter
WALDO-The city's proposed
wastewater line connection to
S Gainesville Regional Utilities
S (GRU) was the leading topic of
. discussion Tuesday nighi as the
Waldo City Commission received
an update about the project.
The city will reimburse
Gainesville Regional Utilities
(GRU) the estimated $5 million
debt the utility will incur when


building, the pipeline. Waldo
City Attorney John' McPherson
compared the cost to paying
a massive. connection charge.
However, the exact price had not
been calculated as of the Tuesday
meeting.
Both McPherson and City
Manager Kim Worley said the
cost is comparable -to the city
trying to build the line itself.
The city will pay for the
wastewater line with a combined


grant and loan through the Rural
Development Department of the
USDA. The city will be required
to pay back the loan portion of the
financing over a 40-year period.
Currently GRU is waiting for
Waldo to receive the loan and
grant financing to start work on
the line. Worley estimated that
the line will be completed in three
years.
Mayor Louie Davis voiced
concern that 'others could tap


into the line, providing GRU
gave permission. While GRU
could do that, the utility provider
is required under contract to
provide Waldo with 200,000
gallons and cannot cut into the
Waldo reserves.
"The only thing we. should
worry about is our capacity,".
Commissioner Rodney Estes
said.
Waldo's current capacity
is 75,000 gallons an4 the new


wastewater line will increase that
capacity to 200,000 gallons.
Worley's main concern is that
water rates will no longer be set by
the City of Waldo: "I'drather deal
with the City of Gainesville than
anybody else," Commissioner
Estes said in response to 'the city
manager's concern.

Now that California's
Proposition 19 has been
defeated, it is a good time to
remind everyone that marijuana
is a Schedule 'I controlled
substance, and therefore illegal
under Federal law.
While some states allow
medical use, Florida is not one
of them. A misperception exists,
especially among teens, that
"everybody does it."
Overall, marijuana use has
declined since the 199.0s, but it


A message from the desk of

Sheriff Sadie Darnell

Marijuana


is still the most commonly used
illegal substance.
Many think marijuana (AKA
pot, refer, grass,'joint, weed,
ganja, bud, and herb) is harmless.
Think again. Marijuana contains
approximately 400 chemicals,
including the psychoactive THC
(delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol).
Marijuana negatively affects
coordination, learning, memory,
judgment and perception. In
other words, users are at greater
risk of school and job problems,
and risky behavior resulting


in accidents or leading' to STD
exposure.
Four to 14 percent of drivers
injured or killed in auto accidents
tested positive for THC due to
slowed reactions and impaired
judgment. Smoking marijuana
increases the chance of lung
cancer and breathing problems.
Marijuana is psychologically
addictive.
Studies show that young
people who use other illicit
drugs (cocaine, heroin, etc.)
often started with marijuana -


leading to its label as a "gateway.
drug." Recent studies using
twins found that marijuana'users
are more likely to develop a
psychosis such as schizophrenia
or other related delusional
disorders than non-users when
genetics and environmental
factors are controlled for.

Choice, course and consequences


In the Book of Romans,
chapter 6, Saint Paul asks,
"Shall we continue in sin,
that grace may abound?"
He then goes on to tell us
how the believer's new life
becomes a life pledged to
God through Christ, and
insists that we fulfill that
pledge. Then, in verse 15,
Paul asks a very subtle
question, "We shouldn't
continue in sin, but what
if we just sin every once
in awhile, because we
can easily be forgiven by
a gracious God?." This
is an idea that could work
its way into a Christian's
thoughts because of God's
mercifulness.
But if you think you can
play with sin and obedience
is a serious mistake. And
that's what St. Paul is
teaching in the Epistle to
the Romans. Christians
have been given the power
to choose the master and
He is the master, and our
choice commits us to a
course and a consequence.
Look at these three


elements: choice, course,
and consequence.
First is, a choice -
there are people who teach
that man's path can be
calculated and it's possible
to know what the end result
will to be. But the variable
in this calculation is man's
will. And to test this theory
all we have to do is look
at our consciousness. "I
know that I am free; I have
the power to choose; and
when I've decided to do
something, I know that I
could have decided to do
things differently. "
There are all kinds of
things to catch our attention
but we only allow certain
ones too and then we
choose what to do. The
history of the Fallis the best
example of this freedom.
At the beginning of history
man could obey God or to
gratify himself and he chose.
self-gratification. But the
results, unlike the choosing,
weren't temporary.
Freedom was essentially
gone. We still had the

Church, Gainesville.

Christian Episcopal
SChurch
freedom to choose from all
the different instruments of
self-gratification, but the
power to serve God like
before was gone-a great
separation had become
fixed between man and
God. This is where the
total depravity of man
comes from, There was a
total separation from God,
without the ability or power
to return. This. chasm gave
man the opportunity to go
from bad to worse.
Thankfully, God's
redeeming influences reach


the heart of man, and more
importantly, because God
came to earth to redeem
mankind, the total depravity
is diminished and our weak
will is given new strength.
We can now place our
choice on God; it's possible
to return to God by choice.
When we look at
ourselves in light of the
redeeming truths of the
gospel of Christ, everyone
can make a-choice between
godliness and ungodliness,
truth and falseness; the right
and good, and the wrong
and bad, or, in the words of
St. Paul, between obedience
and sin. From childhood
on, good and bad influences
compete for. control of the
individual. God and sin ask
for our service, and we'll'
"yield ourselves" to one
or the other. We make our
choice, either consciously
and deliberately, or
unconsciously and
carelessly. We either
choose sin, setting the
seal on our own death; or
we choose God, and rise
to nwness of life. Either
way, our choice determines

our course in life, and the
course that we commit to
has inescapable results.
Now, look at the course
that our choice, whichever
way,.conimits us to.
In one instance, we
become servants, or slaves,
of sin. Man may refuse to
bow to sin; but when he
slips, sin latches on and
holds on tight. He may be
able to break free, but every
time he slips, a new chain
is added. The phrase, "The
slave of sin" isn't fiction.
The man who yields to sin
is held captive by a master
stronger than himself.
If we make the better
choice, we become
servants, or slaves, of
obedience. In this case,
the same law works,
but here the result is the
protection and glory of our
righteousness. But isn't it


still slavery? If you think
service, goal-oriented,.
serious, continuous service,'.
is slavery, it's not. Service
is slavery when it's forced,
or degrading and lowly
even if it's not forced. If
we obey God and serve
him with zeal and the
enthusiasm of lofty joy,
that's the highest form of
freedom.
Think about the
consequences that these
two courses lead to. There
are two consequences of
the two courses we, by
our free will, commit to
ourselves. But where death
is the wages of sin, eternal
life is God's free gift.
And to all of us, the
voice from heaven says,
"Fight the.good fight of
faith; lay. hold on eternal
life!"
