Waldo files suit against


County over ticket


By BEATRICE DIEHL
Today Reporter
WALDO The City of Waldo has
officially signed a legal complaint
against Alachua County charging
them with misusing money from
Florida Statute, section 318.21, more
commonly known as the $12.50 fund.
This fund authorized Alachua
County to collect' $12.50 from
every moving traffic violation in


the city. This money is supposed to
go to an Intergovernmental Radio
Communication Program (IRCP),
which was created to help law
enforcement communications within
Alachua County.
Alachua County started charging
$12.50 for the IRCP in 1993 with the
intent that they would help lessen the
costs of law enforcement radios and
other communication systems.


charges
The arrangement appeared to
work until 1999.
In 1999, Alachua County switched
from a 400 to an 800 megahertz radio
system, contracting with Gainesville
Regional Utilities (GRU) for the
system.
According to Waldo's complaint,
funds from the IRCP were supposed

Approval of the plant
Tuesday moved it one step
closertobeing Florida's first
electric generating facility

main fuel supply.
Governor Charlie Crist

a great breakthrough and


I think it is the right thing
to do. The groups that have
supported this, I have great
trust and confidence in
them."

biomass plant which would
be built at the Gainesville
Regional Utilities (GRU)
Deerhaven plant on U.S.
Highway 441 near Alachua.
Plans for, the wood-
burning plant have sparked

it used to be Cellon's cow
pasture.
Alachua's retired city
manager Clovis Watson,
Jr. has known Cellon just
about his entire life, and
he looks up to him as a
mentor, both personally
and professionally.
"Uncle Ralph," as
he calls him, "has an
uncanny ability to make
things happen," Watson
explained.
"I've watched him
bring people of opposing
views together to work in
harmony."
That ability knowing
how to talk to people,
according to Cellon and
those Who know 'him,
seems to be what makes
him a good businessman
and philanthropist.
"Nobody \rants to be
talked down to," he said,
explaining that you catch
more flies with honey.
And what he wants is to
help others.
Years later, when he
served on the Alachua
County ,Commission, he
brokered a deal to borrow
money to build Alachua
General Hospital. That
experience, he said, is
what piqued his interest in
investment banking.
These days he works
for investment firm Morgan
Keegan & Company. and
lives in Haile Plantation


with his wife of nearly 12
years, Jerry.
Cellon explains his first
marriage .lasted 39 years
and produced four children.
S"The mother of my kids
is a good woman she just
didn't like me," he said,
chuckling.
Jerry has six children
from her previous marriage,
and she and Cellon have
15 grandchildren between
them with two great
grandchildren on the way.
Cellon will proudly
admit his 77" birthday is
coming up Feb. 23.
Although a handicap
card dangles from the rear-
view mirror of his silver
2008 Ford Crown Victoria,
he doesn't understand the
concept of retirement. He
was raised to keep working
hard until you die. One
thing he's learned, though,
is that sometimes you have
to, "work smarter instead of
harder." .
And despite his shock
,of white hair and slowed
gate, when he speaks his
words are full of wit, yet
seasoned with authority.
The almost-77-year-
old investment banker and
community activist, in his
pressed suit and perfectly
lknotted tie, is still an eight-
year-old cowboy at heart.

High Springs health fair this Saturday


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS Give blood, get a flu
shot and say hi to Santa Claus.
Those are just a few of the things to do
at the first High Springs Holiday Health Fair
which is sponsored by Alachua County's
CHOICES program.
St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church,
located at 105 NW Second Street, is hosting
the event on Dec. 11 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In the spirit of "giving the gift of health,"
the fair is free and open to the public, and the
majority of services offered will be free, like
blood pressure screenings, information on
Medicaid and other programs and visits to


the mobile clinic.
Flu shots are $25 a person, said CHOICES
administrative assistant Heidi Hofer.
The goal of the health fair is to offer
information and care resources to people of
all ages in the community. While there will be
many booths geared toward senior citizens,
she said, there will a lot for the whole family
as well. And yes, Santa will be there for the
kids.
Also, the High Springs Police Department
will do a K-9 demonstration from 10 a.m. to
noon.
For more information, call CHOICES at
352-334-8889.

WALDO:
Continued frioml page A I


City says it's owed over $600,000


to pay for the new radio system.
However, Waldo has been responsible
for paying $60.11 a month to GRU for
the new radios.
Waldo City Attorney John McPherson
claims that the city has never received
any IRCP money from the county to help
with the new radio system.
The city's complaint asks that
Alachua County pay Waldo all the
money they were supposed to have
received since fiscal year 2000-2001.
If a judge rules in favor of the city,
it stands to gain $616,007 the total
amount of backed-up. IRCP surcharge


Waldo Chief of Police Mike Szabo
believes the city has a good chance of
winning the case.
He pointed out that Waldo has to stay
connected to county law enforcement and
must have an updated communication
system to do so, so it makes sense for

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

Safety of sedatives


Q: Are the sedatives
dentists use safe?
A: Your dentist uses no
form of anesthesia, something
that causes you to lose
sensitivity to pain, that is not
safe. They use anesthesia on
millions of patients every year,
following the training they've
received in their formal
education and guidelines
established by the American
Dental Association. Among
the options your dentist will
talk about with you are the
following:
* Topical anesthesia, which is
applied on a small surface of
skin with some sort of swab.
* Novocaine, called a local
anesthetic since it numbs
only that portion of the mouth
on which the dentist is going
to work. The dentist injects
Novocain with a needle and


uses it in procedures like
cleaning out and filling a
cavity, treating an infected
gum area or. getting teeth
ready for crowns.
* Nitrous oxide, sometimes
called "laughing gas" for
the general use of euphoria
it creates in a patient who
inhales it. Though you will
be conscious for the dental
procedure, you'll be totally
relaxed.
* General anesthesia, which
may be required for more
complicated procedures,
can be used to make you
temporarily unconscious.
There are also types of
general anesthesia that leave
you conscious but with no
memory of the procedure.
Talk with your dentist
about sedation options.

LEE To EDI[T


My daugh,e bless her heart; has an amazing
capacity for:empathy. Her heart is as big as
Jupiter. Too bad she inherited one of my strongest
genes: The oni that requires her to forget critical
pieces of information at crucial times.
I have a complex system of
calendars, lists, and sticky notes.
designed to remind me of what
. I'm forgetting. I simply have to
remember to look at them.
My daughter, on the other '
hand, has not developed -such a
system yet.' This was evident
the other day when she had to .
go to a tennis lesson followed by
a sleepover at a friend's house.
She was very excited about the.
sleepover, so I knew she would ra
have little trouble:packing for that. Lara
The tennis 'lesson, however, was
an easy event to forget.
'For this reason, I made sure she had her tennis
racket in the car and tennis shoes on her-feet.
You may ask how I remembered.. It was the tiny
picture of a tennis racket that I drew on my hand
in orange washable marker. My daughter packed
a duffle bag for the sleepover.
Driving to the tennis lesson, a voice came
from the back of the minivan:
"Oh phooey!"... which is the worst curse
my daughter has ever been known to utter in her
twelve years.
"What's wrong?" .
"I forgot my pajamas."
Surprised, but not willing to turn around, I
said, "Maybe you can borrow you friend's PJs or
sleep in your clothes. It's only one night.".
"Yeah..." she said, clearly concerned but not
Wanting to complain.
A few minutes later, "Oh, phooey!"
"What now?"
"I forgot my hair brush."
"For goodness sake! You have a huge duffle
bag. If you don't have your pajamas in there
or your hair brush, what exactly do you have in


there?"
"My pillow."
"You put your pillow in a duffle bag?"
"I didn't want to get it dirty. That would make
more laundry to wash."
So someone actually was
listening to my ranting about laundry
reproducing itself in the liamper.
The girl has a way of making me feel
guilty for my whining.
"Maybe your friend has a brush
-', ypu can use, too," I said, still not
S wanting to turn around. We were
o ', going to be late for the tennis lesson
as it was.
"Yeah..." -she said, still not
willing to complain.
deWe were almost there when I
yder heard:
"Oh, phooey!"
Uh, oh. It was a Triple Phooey. That can't
be good.
"What did you forget this time?"
"My toothbrush," she said miserably.
Something told me that her friend would not
be as accommodating with her toothbrush. I used
to have a spare toothbrush, still in its package, in
my glove compartment. Don't ask me why. That
question had never been sufficiently answered
and is probably the reason why the toothbrush
was no longer in the glove compartment. We
could -buy one if there were a store between the
tennis lesson and the sleepover. I mentally went
through the route. There wasn't.
At this point she was missing her pajamas,
her toothbrush and her hair brush anyway. These
thoughts led to only one conclusion.
I said, "Oh, phooey!" as I turned the minivan
around.

Along with the 30 or

ALACHUA COUnTY TODAY LOCAL NEWS THURSDAY, DECEMBER 09, 2010 A7


BIOMASS:
Continued from page Al
often raise concerns over
projected traffic increases.
In arguing against
approval of the project,
critics have pointed out that
burning of tree trimmings
and wood from area forests
and lands may not only be
inefficient way of collecting
fuel, but also increase
greenhouse gases and the
cost of energy production.
Aside from
environmental concerns,
the one aspect proponents
of the plant have been
unable to overcome is
its impacts on traffic.


Plant contested on traffic and environmental concerns


Gainesville Renewable
Energy Center (GREC)
would be fueled by wood
debris, tree trimmings and
clippings from a 75-mile-
radius of the proposed
plant. Unlike coal which is
currently used at the GRU
power generating plant, the
wood fuel for GREC would
not be taken to the site via
rail.
The nearly $500 million
biomass plant would be
built and operated under
a 30-year-contract by
Amegican Renewables, a
company based in Boston,


Mass.
In April, City of
Alachua commissioners
turned away GREC Project
Manager Josh Levine who
had hoped to get a letter of
support for the plant from
the City.
Commissioners were
as wary as the nearby
residents as to the impacts
of the 130 to 150 trucks
each day project officials
estimate will be heading
up and down U.S. 441 en
route to the plant or back
out to Interstate 75 through
Alachua. That breaks down


to about one truck trip
every five minutes.
The 100-megawatt
biomass project would
supply up to 15 percent
of the power needed by
GRU's customers over the
next several years.
In June, Florida's
Public Service Commission
approved the project in a
3-2 vote. But opponents
have been waging battles in
the courtroom to challenge
that hearing.
In addition to the
Power Plant Siting Board's
approval on Tuesday, a


Florida administrative law
judge issued his second
ruling in favor of the
proposed biomass plant.
Judge Robert E. Meale
rejected claims made by
petitioners who opposed
the plant's air construction
permit.
He found instead that
the facility will not cause
adverse air emissions
impacts or adverse
impacts to wildlife species
or their habitat. The
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
is expected to finalize the


air construction permit
within weeks.
Judge Meale also
issued an order on Nov.
1 recommending site
certification be granted for
the biomass plant saying,
"Instead of undermining
sound silvicultural
practices, the new market
for biomass materials
will enhance the viability
of forestry resources
and thus serve regional
environmental needs."

Diana Felver, the city's official
volunteer city decorator, thanked the
community for their support of the
event as well as others throughout
the year. And children delivered a
resounding "yes" to Cain's question
if they had been good children this
year.
With red and blue lights flashing,
the Alachua Police Department
escorted Santa and Mrs. Claus, who
arrived in a shiny sleigh adorned with
sparkling lights and decorated with
garlands of evergreen.
Waving to the crowd, Jolly Old
St. Nick shouted "Merry Christmas"
to those in attendance. Everyone
turned expectantly to face the
darkened tree, which burst into light
illuminated by hundreds of tiny white
lights, revealing festive red bows,
candy canes and brightly colored
ornaments.
After the conclusion of the tree
lighting ceremony, children and,
parents scurried downtown to the


Alan Hitchcock Theatre Park for
a visit with Santa, Mrs. Claus and
several sprightly elves dressed in
red and green. Main Street's lamp
posts were decorated with twinkling
lights and the lighted crystal globes
hanging from tree branches spread
a welcoming glow to the children
tugging their parents along to see
Santa. Youngsters lined up along
Main Streetwaiting their turn to visit
the jolly elf, whisper their Christmas
wishes andpose for aphoto. Longtime
school teacher Vada Homer sat at the
entrance to the theater park, reading
Christmas stories aloud and greeting
each child in line. As children left the
park, they were also given a bag full
of Christmas treats.
The annual tree lighting and
visit with Santa are made possible
by a partnership between the City of
Alachua, the Alachua Chamber of
Commerce and local businesses that
contribute to the event.
While the 2010 tree lighting


ceremony is over, there are more
holiday events lined up. The City
of Alachua also partners with the
Alachua Chamber of Commerce for
the annual Alachua Christmas Parade.
The parade, themed "Hometown
Traditions," will be held Saturday,

A message from the desk of

Sheriff Sadie Darnell
Holiday safety and crime prevention


six people are killed; 25
more are injured; and
property damages amount'
to $6 million. A tree can be
completely ablaze within
three seconds' of ignition
and the entire room can be
engulfed within 40 seconds,
according to the National
Institute of Standards, and
Technology.
Preventing holiday,
burglaries involves reducing
opportunities for criminal


activity. If you are shopping
at the last minute, store
packages out of sight in the
trunk of your car, not in plain
view. Once you get home,
keep'your house and garage
secured. Keep any sheds
secured because they often
contain just the sort of tools a
burglar can use to break into
your home. Ifyou are away at.
a holiday party, make it look
like you are really at home
by keeping lights on. Leave


your curtains dawn. While it
may be tempting to show off
that tree through the window,
doing so also shows off all
those presents under the tree.
After Christmas, do not place
all the high dollar item boxes
at the curb for the garbage
truck. Cut up those boxes and
dispose of them in garbage
bags so the thieves can, not
tell what has been added to
3our home. '

The Divine Effect of God's Love


The following is an
excerpt that was written
more than 50 years ago and
is part of a series meant to
explain what it was to be
an Episcopalian. This is
from "The Church for You
- an Introduction to the
Episcopal Church, by H.
Robert Smith.
"It can, of course,
be assumed that in any
branch of the Christian
Church the Bible would
have an influential place.
But this is true in a most
extraordinary way in the
Episcopal Church. For
the Bible has always been
at the very heart of its life
and worship. Ifany church
can claim to be a "Bible
Church," the Episcopal
Church can make this
claim... Symbolic of this
fact you will notice that
invariably the. Bible on
the lectern in Episcopal
Churches is never closed.
It is always an open book.
Not only has the Anglican
Church been'a leader in
the noble task of giving the
people the open Bible, but it
is itself Church both Bible


inspired and Bible guided
It is in very truth a Bible
Church...the language
of our Book of Common
Prayer is a Biblical
language. Its liturgies
breath the Divine breath
of the Biblical revelation
in which God and man
have met each other face
to face...[the Episcopal
Church] believes in the
Bible as a book for inspired
daily living...and believes
the Bible to be the inspired
Word of God... These are
the things the Episcopal
Church encourages its
members, "to read, mark,
learn, and inwardly digest'.
Just as the Bible is always
kept open in the Church, so
we believe it should not be
closed at home, but should
be openedfor daily reading
and meditation that it may
give inspiration for life.
A closed Bible cannot do
these things."
Even though written
last century, these words
still apply to the faithful.
But, we need to understand
that there are those who
would pervert and corrupt


THE VEN. JOHN E.
PLEASURE
All Saints Anglican
Church, Gainesville.
A parish of the
Christian Episcopal
Church
the Divinely Inspired Word
of God. There are books
and lectures that show that
the modem interpretations
of the Bible have actually
changed the message that
Christ and the Apostles
delivered to the Body of
Christ so many centuries
ago. These changes were
added slowly and with
the excuse of making the
Gospel message easier to
read and understand, but
the careful re-wording has
changed the Scriptures
to the extent that in some
versions, the Divinity of


Christ is denied. This is
one reason why Apostolic
Succession is so important
to the Anglican Church.
The Gospel has been
handed down, word for
word, from Christ to the
Apostles, to the Bishops
and Clergy of the Church.
In Chapter 15 of Saint
Paul's first letter to the
Corinthians he boldly
states the principle of
Christianity, its obligations
on 'its members and its
obligations as a Church
Body, "Brethren, I declare
unto you the GOSPEL
which I preached unto
you, which also ye have
received, and wherein ye
STAND; by which also ye
are SAVED, if ye keep in
memory which I preached
a unto you, unless ye have
believed in vain, For I
delivered unto you first
of all that which I also
received..."
Saint Paul has presented
a single message and it's not
politically correct; it's not
socially sensitive; it hasn't
been changed to keep from
offending the listeners. It
purely and simply is the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. To
change this message would

be a denial and distortion of
the Lord Jesus Christ, and a
denial of the only hope for
the salvation of mankind.
In Chapter 15:1-3, Saint
Paul states that the Gospel
he preached was received
by the saints at Corinth,
emphasizing the fact that
not only was it received
(like you take something
to yourself that was in the
possession of' another)
but more importantly, that
they've taken their stand
upon it. Saint Paul believes
that they will hold fast to
the Gospel and defend it to
the very end of time.
Nothing less than
salvation hinges on the
accurate transmission,
reception, and defense of
the Gospel. Saint Paul
doesn't mix words, "I
declare to you the Gospel
which I preached unto
you, which also ye have
received, and wherein ye


stand; BY WHICH ALSO
YEARESAVED..." Itcan't
be stated more clearly.
There are two types of
people who hear the Gospel
- those, who in religious
pride, attempt to lord their
religious authority over
others without having felt
the divine effect of Christ's
love in their heart. And
then there are those, who
having heard the Word,
are compelled to see
themselves as they truly are
and to repent with tears of
regret and thankfulness for
God's mercy. The Church
,has always faced both types
and we need to remember
that the merciless ones
wearing religion as a
badge, crucified the Lord,
Creator, and Savior of the
World, while the criminal
on the nearby cross accused
himself as a sinner and was
promised paradise.

Alachua senior citizens welcome Hawthorne seniors


STAFF REPORT
Alachua County Today
ALACHUA On Dec. 1, a group
of Alachua's senior citizens had the
opportunity to host City of Hawthorne
Mayor Kit Randall and Hawthorne area
senior citizens.


First on the morning's agenda was a
meet and greet, which was followed by
several rousing rounds of bingo. Lunch
for the group was prepared by Retha
Peterson, Rose Brown and a handful of
volunteers. Joining the gathering for lunch
was City of Alachua Chief of Police Joel
DeCoursey, who also addressed the group.


Also stopping by were City of Newberry
city manager Keith Ashby and recreation
director Richard Blalock, as well as a few
seniors from the Newberry area.
Alachua seniors took the Hawthorne
seniors and Mayor Randall on a tour of
Alachua, visiting city parks, City Hall,
downtown merchants, residential areas,


Progress Corporate Park, and the Hal
Brady Recreation Complex.
Seniors from Hawthorne and Alachua
said the event was a success and they
enjoyed the group activities, lunch and the
tour.
