Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE In a
3-2 vote, commissioners-in
Hawthorne voted Thursday
night to fire City Manager
Ed Smyth who has been on
the job there since October
2009.
The move came amid a
review of the city's budget
which had been approved in
September, but later found
to be out of balance.'
As discussions about
the city's finances were
beginning Thursday, a
frustrated Commissioner
Deloris Roberts said
she wanted to note they
were about to embark on
reviewing the seventh
proposed budget.
As the meeting wore

About an hour and
a half into the meeting,
Commissioner William
Carlton said, "I think we
need to quit beating this
dead horse and hire us a
city manager who can give
us a balanced budget and be
done with it."
Roberts called
the budget process
"disturbing," adding, "And
what's even more disturbing
is. that we are two months
into the fiscal year without
an adopted budget."

Merry Christmas to you


Each December as Christmas comes and goes,
I marvel at how quickly the year passes. How
different it was when I was a child and I waited
with great anticipation for the upcoming Christmas
celebrations and the oh-io-wonderful visit from
Santa Clause. In those days, the span between one
Christmas and the next stretched on and on until the
waiting was almost unbearable.
Today, as I remember those childhood
Christmases, recollections of special people and
traditions are evoked from long ago
memories. I recall my parents sending
my brother and me off to bed early on .
Christmas Eve, because to stay up late
might risk Santa's visit. And my brother. r
andLI both were quite certain that we had
only- oie chdine, and if Santa passed
our house because we were still awake,
he wouldn't be back at least not until
the following year. Not to.wake up on .
Christmas morning and find presents ,.
from Santa under the tree would be
unthinkable!
And that tree! Each year my family
chopped down our own Christmas tree
we found after trudging through acres
and acres of Florida scrub pines in search Ellen
of that perfect tree. Buying a Christmas
tree was virtually unheard of back then, at
least where we lived. Buying a tree was something
left for "city folks" who didn't have trees growing
outside their front doors or for people who were
rich and Florida's humble scrub pine wasn't quite
suitable for their homes.
But those tall slender trees, with sparsely
placed branches and clumps of loose leaf needles,
were plenty. good enough to hang shiny stars and
galloping reindeer covered with sparkling strands
of silver tinsel and to offer a welcoming spot for
gifts beneath the boughs of green.
My brother always insisted on finding the tallest
tree possible, even though on occasion, the selected
tree was much too tall to fit inside our modest
living room, and would require much chopping and
whittling to clear the ceiling and for the trunk to fit
snugly inside the old metal red and green tree stand.
My grandparents' tree on the other hand was


somewhat different. Living just down the clay-
topped country road from us, my grandmother and
grandfather also subscribed to the "seek and ye
shall find" method of Christmas tree selection. But
that is where the similarity ended.
Their tree was much smaller, never being
more than two feet in height, and always graced
their coffee table. My grandmother was devoutly
religious and I always wondered if that was the
reason she was partial to angel hair rather than
tinsel. Each year my grandfather
S topped their tree with the plain
tin star he had hand fashioned
himself. Having been an
engineer by profession, his star
was precisely correct in. all its
angles, and I am certain he took
,. B great pride in that fact.
My grandparents always
opened their gifts on Christmas
Eve, a tradition my family did not
subscribe to, as we waited until
Christmas morning to open ours.
But how we enjoyed visiting our
grandparents on Christmas Eve!
Besides seeing the joy in our
Boukari grandparents' eyes in response
to the gifts we brought them, we
were always allowed to open one
of our gifts as well.
And before the evening was over, we were
treated to my grandinother's homemade Japanese
fruitcake and mouth-watering sweet ambrosia.
Unlike a traditional fruitcake, her Japanese
fruitcake only contained raisins and walnuts, and
even then they were only folded in alternating
layers of that sinfully delicious cake. Between the
layers (and there must have been at least six or eight
thinly sliced ones) was the best tasting icing in the
world. It must have been her private recipe because
I have never since tasted such a wonderful mingling
of vanilla, almond and butter.
Her homemade ambrosia contained only two
ingredients navel oranges and coconut. I once
suggested to her that surely she had added sugar
in order to create such a sweet concoction. She
assured me in no uncertain terms that sweet navel


oranges and their juices, along with the coconut
were the sole ingredients. I believe her.
But Christmas traditions didn't only revolve
around Santa, the tree, the gifts, or even food.
Christmas was above all, a religious celebration.
And all the other activities were only precursors
to the big event. Christmas services at our little
country church were always, special and there was
an air of anticipation, joy and solemnity all at once.
Each year the children re-enacted the nativity,
with the boys solemnly making their way down
the church aisle in their long robes, carrying exotic
looking bottles as they approached the manger
scene complete with Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus.
Each year, my brother was. always one of the three
wise men since our church congregation was small,
and there were only a handful of boys of the proper
age.
The girls, on the other hand, viewed the event
in a different light. Who would represent Mary
and wear the beautiful white robe, golden sash and
shimmering blue scarf? One year I had my turn
and I felt so special for weeks before and after
the service. After all, I was Mary, the mother of
baby Jesus. It just doesn't get any better than that.
Imagine my disappointment the following year,
when I was replaced by another little girl.
Looking back at how we celebrated Christmas
in years past, today's celebrations not only diminish
the meaning of Christmas, but the passion as well.
The current emphasis on celebrating for celebration's
sake offers a full dose of instant gratification that
is short-lived and essentially meaningless. How
fortunate are those who recognize Christmas as
more than simply a seasonal celebration, but as a
time to experience renewed faith and rededication
and genuinely celebrate family, tradition and above
all, the birth of Christ.
Merry Christmas to all, and God bless us every
one.

Home is first LEED-certified Habitat home


Douglass neighborhood, in the southeast
corer of High Springs. The women have
been coming here every Saturday morning
since the beginning of November. By now,
the project is starting to look like a house.
On Dec. 18, a team of electricians
joined the women despite the rain to start
installing wiring. Usually, there's only one
man on-site supervisor Larry Bagnall.
He estimates the house will be finished
some time in April.
LEED stands for leadership in energy
and environmental design. It was created
by the. U.S. Green Building Council
(USGBC), a non-profit organization,
as a certification system and guide for
how to build efficiently and minimize
environmental impact.
But building green can mean a variety
of different things to different people.
Jennifer Langford is' a professional
architect and chair of the residential green
building committee for the local USGBC
chapter, and she's assisting with the design
and construction of this house.
What's exceptional about the LEED
program, compared to other certification
systems, she explained, is that it's


comprehensive. The checklist used
accounts for every aspect of a building
project, from energy efficiency for utilities
to environmental surroundings, to non-
toxic building materials to location.
Little things, she pointed out, like
whether a person can walk or use public
transportation rather than drive to the
grocery store, can make a house a little
greener.
The way the LEED system works
is that if a project falls short in one area
it can still qualify by making up for it in
another. If a home is built in a rural area
where the residents will have to drive to
go somewhere, by making out energy
efficiency within the home, it can still pass
the certification.
Mary Alfred, professional engineer and
president of the local USGBC chapter, is
serving as a qualified third party to oversee
the High Springs Habitat for Humanity
house and verify that it is built to LEED
standards.
She pointed out some of the
construction aspects that will contribute to
energy efficiency and overall sustainability
of the house. The air conditioning ducts are


being installed through the ceiling within
an insulated area. In most homes the ducts
are installed in the attic, which tends to be
the hottest place in the house, making the
cooling system work harder to get cold air
down into the living space.
Another important factor in building
this house, Alfred said, is size. One of the
design challenges on the project was how
to make to the most out of a small lot. By
minimizing hallway space and maximizing
square footage in each room, the interior
will be more efficient when it comes to
heating and cooling.
The windows presented another
opportunity for making the house energy
efficient, and they were tinted to reduce
heating and cooling usage.
Shannette Rushing was one of the
women working on the house. She can
only come every other Saturday, she said,
because she has to work. On Dec. 18 she
was joined by her cousin, Harold Black,
who volunteered to help build what is to be
Rushing's new house.
She and her three children, 9-year-old
Jacquez, 5-year-old Alnarya and 1-year-
old Alfabian, are excited to move into their


new home.
Rushing hasn't picked paint colors for
the four bedrooms or two bathrooms yet,
or the kitchen countertops or the roof--all
things the homeowner has the opportunity
to select themselves through the Habitat
for Humanity program. But she will soon.
Alfred and Langford suggested a light-
colored roof would be the best so it absorbs
less light, thus keeping the house cooler
under the hot Florida sun.
Though this is Alachua County's first
LEED Habitat house, other chapters of
the program have started building only
LEED-certified. Alfred said 60 percent of
all LEED-certified homes are considered
affordable housing.
Even if the homeowner spends a little
more up front here and there, Langford
explained, in the long term they save
on everything from electric bills to
maintenance and repairs.
"People think it costs more to build
a green home, but it really doesn't," said
Alfred.

Q: Any ideas for dental-
themed gifts?
A: Sure. There are
plenty of ways to say Merry
Christmas with a dental-
related gift, Note only will
you bring a smile to a loved
one's face, you can help
them keep it there. New
toothbrushes and floss rolls
are excellent and useful -
stocking stuffers. A loved
one who's growing older and
may be developing dexterity
issues might find an easy-
to-grip, easy-to-operate
powered toothbrush a terrific
gift. For youngsters on your
list, you might consider a
book that describes a first trip
to the dentist. This is a good
way to get a step up on any
anxiety they might otherwise


experience. And a colorful
toothbrush that sports the
figure of a child's favorite
movie or cartoon character
is a good way to encourage
brushing.
At the higher end of the
scale, has a loved one been
talking about a cosmetic
procedure like tooth-
whitening or application of
veneers? You might talk
with their dentist and see
about getting a gift certificate
for all or part of the cost of
the work. Whatever products
you may decide to buy, be
sure they carry the American
Dental Association Seal
of Acceptance. That way
you'll know the experts have
determined them to be both
effective and safe.

heard what was described
as a "very loud" gunshot
which apparently shattered
the driver's side window.
Upon looking back, the
man noticed a white Ford
Explorer sitting in the
parking lot of Alachua
Tractor, a neighboring
business located across the
street.
Police say when they
went to the area of SunState
Federal Credit Union, they
saw the reported Ford
Explorer parked in the
same location described by
the man who had been shot.
Upon their approaching the
white Ford, police say three
people exited the vehicle


and fled on foot.
After about a 200-
yard foot chase, police
reportedly caught Richard
Demond Addison, 23, of
Alachua. According to
police reports, the vehicle
in which the trio was sitting
had been reported stolen
two days prior and a gun
was found inside the Ford.
At the time, police were
unable to catch the two other
people who reportedly fled
the scene. By Thursday,
police obtained a warrant
for the arrest of Derae
Jenkins, 18, of Alachua in
connection with the alleged
shooting. Police picked up
Jenkins Friday morning.


Jenkins is being held
on a $300,000 bond and
is being charged with
attempted premeditated
murder, robbery and
burglary.
Addison is being held
on a $225,000 bond and
charged with attempted
murder and robbery.
A third person is still
being sought in the case.
Police are asking anyone
with information that may
help in the case to call 386-
462-1396.

For unto us a Child is born


We're all familiar with
the beautiful Christmas
carols that are sung at this
time of year. The words
to these joyful hymns are
etched in our hearts and
minds at a very young
age. They're powerful
illustrations of our belief,
capable of doing what few
sermons can; they create
living pictures in our
minds. As we hear the tune
and sing the words, the
images awaken and begin
to spread their Christmas
spirit. Even the most
Scrooge-like person must
feel the tugging in his heart
when the solemn lyrics and
glorious tunes fill the Yule-
tide air.
These carols have a
moving quality to them,
and We tend to picture the
Holy Nativity through the
images and feelings that
are formed by them. The
beauty, and heartfelt impact
of the carols is undeniable,
but sometimes, the Biblical
accuracy leaves a little to
be desired. For example,
"The First Noel", has the


three Magi pressing in
for a closer look at baby
Jesus and offering Him
their gifts, just like in the
Nativity sets.
The facts are; that there
were astrologers who came
from the East and brought
gifts of incense, gold, and
myrrh, but the missing
fact in this carol and in
the Nativity set is that
the Magi weren't present
on the night of Christ's
birth. But nowhere in the
Gospel of Saint Matthew
is the number of the Magi
mentioned and we're
specifically told that they
arrived at a house to see
a young child. If the
Bible doesn't support this
nativity picture of wise-
"men standing alongside
Mary, Jesus, Joseph and the
shepherds, where did this
idea come from; it came
from our traditions, our
carols, and our Yule-tide
customs.
I'm not criticizing
carols or Biblical accuracy
in the hymnal but as I
searched for some sense of

devotion in the Christmas
carols at the miracle of
Christ's birth, I started
listing the main characters
and e~nts; shepherds and
wise men, choirs of angels,
the Blessed Virgin, the babe
in the manger, the cold
winter night, the silence
and the star. These are,
more or less, the images
etched in our memory,
but after thinking about
this wonderful picture, I
realized that something
very important had been
left out, and remember, our


belief is often influenced
by the traditions we keep at
Christmas time.
Strangely, I discovered
what, or actually, who
was absent in the songs of
Christmas, was a portrait of
Saint Joseph, the husband
of the Virgin Mary. When
I saw this, I had to admit
that even though he has
his place in the Nativity
sets, he's mainly there for
decoration, his presence
isn't necessary. If that
sounds harsh, think about
how our carols treat him,
and we realized that we've
accepted his unimpressive
status.
This oversight is
shameful and can be
spiritually harmful. If
there is any image I'd like
to have awakened in your
heart this Christmas season,
it's the image of a Holy
family, not just the portrait
of Mother and child. We
should remember that the
Holy Infant was entrusted
into the hands of Joseph.
This humble and devout
man wasn't a fifth wheel

choice for becoming the
earthly, or adoptive father
for Jesus Christ. Joseph's
faith is a model of faith
for all of us; he accepted
the word of God through
an angel and he never
doubted the testimony of
Mary. Without hesitation
or doubt, Joseph embraced
this infant son, conceived
by the Holy Ghost, and.he
surrendered his heart to the
love of God and offered
his life as a sacrifice.
This wasn't a man who
frowned at an unexpected
turn of events in his life;
he willingly chose to obey
God.
We need to remember
that before this event,
Joseph had his own plans
to be a husband and
provider, to earn his living
in an honorable vocation,
bul after the birth of Jesus,
he's rarely heard from


again except to tell us that
he rescued the baby from
certain death at the hands
of Herod and later when
it was safe he brought his
family to Galilee. What
more can be said of Saint
Joseph than the fact that
he guarded the love of
Jesus Christ in his heart?
He abandoned his pride,
his plans, his choices, and
sacrificially finished his
life with only one purpose
in mind, to love the Son
of God. This almost
forgotten man is worthy
of our remembrance and
admiration. This Christmas
may God, the Father, grant
us such love in our hearts
for the gift of His Son that
we too will offer ourselves
to His service, not out of
some imagined sense of
duty but out of a consuming
love for God.
