Water battles may intensify

as local restrictions loom

BEN BOUKARVIAIachua County Today
North Central Florida's springs offer an abundance of fresh water activities for area residents as well as tourists. On this January
day, outdoor enthusiasts at Rum Island enjoy the refreshing springs;, while beneath them the water within Florida's aquifer serves a
vital role in maintaining the quality of life for all Floridians.

Springs protection bill may

come to Alachua County

Today Reporter
This week's announcement
by the Suwannee River Water
Management District about
upcoming mandatory water-
use restrictions for Alachua
County and 14 surrounding'
counties should come as no
surprise to Alachua County
Today readers. With a drought
tightening its grip on water
supplies over the past year,
Alachua County finds itself in
the middle of the tug of war in
the ever increasing need for

water. The battle for water is
smoldering in Georgia to the
north, Apalachicola Bay to the
west, Orlando to the south and
the St. Johns River to the east.
This is another installment in a
series looking at the water

Florida's State Legislature
may vote to approve a new

Water restrictions on horizon

Today Reporter
S Mandatory water-use
restrictions for Alachua County
and 14 surrounding counties will
go into effect April 7 due to an
area water shortage, according to
a Suwannee River Water
Management District (SRWMD)
press release.
The SRWMD governing
board issued the order Tuesday,
which includes restrictions on all
residential, commercial,
industrial and agricultural areas.
The water-restriction order
was created in response to the
current drought, which has

produced, what the SRWMD
calls "extremely low"
groundwater levels and is
expected to intensify over the
next few months.
The District is suffering its
eighth-driest two-year period
since 1932, with a rainfall deficit
of 28.7 inches, according to the
press release.
Before the restrictions go into
effect, district staff will meet
with city and county officials to
coordinate the implementation
and enforcement guidelines.
They will also meet with
commercial and industrial

Mayor to run

for re-election

Today Reporter
Mayor Gib Coerper told a.
crowded room of business
people that he intends to run
for re-election this year.
Coerper is the first to toss
his hat in the ring for the
City of Alachua's upcoming
election.. He made the
announcement during an
Alachua Chamber of
Commerce luncheon
The Mayor is a bit early
in his announcement as
qualifying for his seat
doesn't open for several
more weeks and the election
isn't until April 8. It may be
no coincidence though.

Nearly all of
recent elec-
tion winners
have been
the first to
their candi-


Coerper's seat is the only
one up for grabs this year
with commission seats held
by Orien Hills and James
Lewis expiring in 2009.
Commissioners Jean
Calderwood and Bonnie
Burgess were re-elected last
year. Calderwood went
uncontested and ,Burgess
defeated two opponents

Concrete plant applicant suing

City of Alachua over denial

Today Reporter
ALACHUA- A seemingly inevitable lawsuit
against the City of Alachua from a concrete
company has come to fruition. Trinity Materials,
LLC filed suit on Dec. 21 requesting the Eighth
Judicial Circuit Court to reverse a decision by
Alachua commissioners denying approval of the
concrete batch plant.
In the suit, Attorney Patrice Boyes claims

that her client, Trinity Materials, was treated
unfairly and subjected to a higher standard of
review than allowed for under the special
exception process.
"The burden on the applicant is much lighter
for a Special Exception than for a use
variance...," Boyes wrote in the lawsuit.
Trinity Materials met its burden of proof she

Farmer's Market turning

plastic into wood

Today Reporter
The High Springs Farmer's Market is the first
market in Florida that is turning plastic into
No, it's not a magic trick. It's part of the
market's new program that encourages
customers to swipe their 'plastic' cards in
exchange for 'wooden' tokens.
The program was initiated with a national
grant of more than $35,000, entitled the High
Springs Food Security Project, from Project for
Public Spaces and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
With a swipe of a credit, debit or EBT (food
stamp) card, customers will receive wooden
tokens in denominational values of $1 and $5,
which are redeemable with any of the market's
"It's just like going to the grocery store now,"
said Sharon Yeago, manager of High Springs
Farmer's Market.
"You just swipe your card, tell the cashier
the amount you want to spend and you get that
back in 'market money' [tokens]."
Shoppers using a credit or debit card can
exchange their tokens for any item at the market,
including plants and crafts, while EBT

Behold the Lamb of God

Special to Alachua County Today
In Saint Matthew, chapter 11,
there is a passage about a man
named John, a prophet of God,
which has confused many people.
We are not told about John's early
years, but his entire life was
appointed for one purpose-to
prepare Israel for the coming of
He was the final prophet of the
Old Testament, the only one
privileged enough to announce the
coming of the Messiah and live to
see the prophecy fulfilled. He was
handed the message that had been
passed from generation to generation
and was a familiar one to the people
of Israel, "Repent, prepare your
hearts, God will visit His people to
redeem and judge them."'
But John, from his birth, was
appointed to make a crucial change
to the announcement. It was not
only, "repent and prepare your
hearts" but also "Behold the Lamb
of God" He was the messenger
announcing the King of Kings; the
Lord of Lords; the Deliverer of
Israel-the news that Israel had
waited to hear. Moses led the people
out of bondage to Egypt, but John
was announcing that one greater
than Moses would bring a greater
deliverance-the Messiah would
lead Israel from the slavery of
Earthly Kingdoms into the Kingdom
of God. The splendor of neither
David's nor Solomon's Kingdoms
could compare to the coming
Kingdom of God.
John was sanctified from the
womb to prepare the people for the
Messiah. The very word of God was
put on his lips, it was not John's

message, but God's. John is
promised that nations and kingdoms
would be pulled down and rooted
out, that his message would set into
* motion the tearing down of the old
and the building up and planting of a

new Kingdom. This
message and its effects
would raise up many
enemies against John,
but God would be with
him and deliver him.
What a
tremendous life John
was to have. And from
the time that he begins
to baptize in the Jordan
River, it looks like
every word of
Jeremiah's prophecy
(Jeremiah, 1:4-7, 17-
19) is fulfilled, which
leads right up to the
dilemma found in
Matthew 11:2-3.
"Now when John
had heard in the

The Ven. Jo
All Saints A
Church, Ga
A parish of
Christian E

prison the works of Christ, he sent
two of his disciples, And said unto
him, Art thou he that should come, or
do we look for another? "
This is the same John that
announced Christ as the Messiah
when God's Spirit descended upon
Him at His baptism; this is the same
John that proclaimed "Behold the
Lamb of God!" And then we read
these very difficult words uttered by
John while lying in prison awaiting
his death, "Art thou he that should
come, or do we look for another? "
Tragically, John's faithfulness to
obey God's calling had landed him
in prison and the Messianic
Kingdom that he was preparing
everyone for had not come. John's

despair is something we've all felt as
we waited for God to help us as we
were expecting him to.
However, John expected the
prophecies to be fulfilled one way,
and when it did not happen the way
he expected, he
became desperate.
The truth is that John
needed to correct his
way of thinking. The
response Jesus gives
to John's disciples,
who brought the
question, identifies the
problem for John and
"NOW when
John had heard in the
>hn E. prison the works of
Christ, he sent two of
,nglican his disciples, and said
inesville. unto him, Art thou he
the that should come, or
piscopal do we look for
another? Jesus
answered and said
unto them, Go and shew John again
those things which ye do hear and
see: the blind receive their sight, and
the lame walk, the lepers are
cleansed, and the deafhear, the dead
are raised up, and the poor have the
gospel preached to them. And
blessed is he, whosoever shall not be
offended in me."
The Kingdom of God had come
in Jesus Christ. The Messiah's
purpose was not to set up a throne on
Earth-it was to save man from sin
and set up a throne for God in the
hearts of men.
John understood the answer that
Christ sent back to him in prison.
However, I know that there are many
Christians who are looking for

something spectacular to happen that
will usher in the NEW KINGDOM
of God on Earth. Let us be careful
not to become like John in prison,
desperate for explanations to clarify
why God has not acted as we
expected Him to act Let us be
humble enough to approach Him
with humility, trusting in His
promise that He is with us till the end
of the ages.

One of the most endearing
films I've seen lately is
"Underdog." It's the story of a
little beagle dog that works for the
local police department, but is let
go. So, he despondently walks the
streets, when he's picked up by a
man, who sticks him in a little
cage with a bunch of other dogs.
It's there that he finds out that he
has actually landed in a mad
scientist's laboratory.
He manages to escape, but in
his flight to freedom, he knocks
over a cupboard full of weird
potions, which spill on top of
him, permanently changing his
He doesn't quite know what
happened, but he's glad to be
gone from that place. A security
guard, who has quit the police
force, picks him up and gives him
to his son, wanting him to learn
some responsibility. What no one
knows, including the dog, is that
he now has superpowers. The
dog is incredibly strong; he can
hear conversations from a huge
-distance, he can fly,; but most of
all, he can hold a conversation
with humans in regular English.
At first the dog is quite
clumsy, because he doesn't know

that he has these superpowers yet.
When the young boy comes
home, he discovers much of the
house is destroyed. At first, he's
not too happy, but within a short
time, he figures out that these
superpowers can be used
responsibly to save people,
including the young girl that he
has developed a crush on.
Of course the mad scientist is
not going to let the dog get by like
that, and he decides to go after
him to get the dog's DNA,
duplicate it in his own dogs and
rule the world.
I thought the film was nice
family entertainment. It makes
you wonder why they even
include the disclaimer at the end,
stating that this story is fictional.
The DVD comes with some
nice extras. Several bloopers and
deleted scenes are included with
the DVD. Kyle Massey has a hip-
hop music video of the film called
"Underdog Raps." There is a nice
little featurette on the DVD about
the making of the film, but
probably the best bonus that I saw
was the first 1960s cartoon of
Underdog. I was truly amazed
how close the film was to the
original cartoon.
I don't have any reservations
about this film for family
viewing. I personally think that

Although no other candidates have publicly
stepped forward, former commissioner Tamara
Robbins has become more active in Alachua's
political as of late, which might be an indicator
she'll be looking to run for a commission seat.
Robbins was a one-term commissioner who
never ran for re-election and was replaced by
Coerper had previously run for re-election,
but was defeated by one-term commissioner
Dianna Rothseiden in 2002. Coerper later won
his seat back in 2005. Coerper has long been
considered by many to be politically moderate.
Alachua City Manager Clovis Watson, Jr.
said last year, he hoped to have all of the town's
election procedures handled by the Alachua
County. Supervisor of Elections. That came
amid sharp criticism from a handful of voters
that alleged wrongdoing and election fraud

cardholders will be given
tokens redeemable for any food
item, including baked goods,
honey and even blueberry
The program's biggest
impact on the market is
allowing EBT cardholders to
use their food stamps to
purchase fresh produce and
baked goods.
These wooden tokens make
shopping at the open-air market
more convenient for both
vendors and shoppers, Yeago
said in a piess release.
Before the new token
system, vendors could only
accept cash for their goods due
to the lack of credit card
Also, on the cash-only
system, many shoppers
wouldn't come with enough
cash to buy everything they
needed, Yeago said.
"Now there are no excuses
for not being able to buy
everything they need," Yeago
However, if customers
prefer they can still use cash to
pay for their purchases instead
of using the new token system.
The market is now- also
equipped with a laptop
computer, which was provided
by ACCESS Partnership with
-Florida Department of Children
and Families, so that market
patrons could sign up for the
EBT food stamp program while
at the market.

during the 2006 election. The claims have
never been proven in court.
A panel assembled by the Florida
Department of State monitored Alachua's 2007
election processes, but found nothing wrong. In
a report issued by the panel, the election
monitors wrote, "The election was conducted in
a fair and impartial manner, generally
consistent with statute and rule."
Although Coerper currently serves as
Mayor, he would be re-elected' to his
commission seat. During the first commission
meeting following a regular election,
commissioners are tasked with selecting a
mayor and vice-mayor among them. All of
Alachua's sitting commissioners have served as
Mayor for at least one term.

Ask Your Dentist by Douglas M.


Q: What is oral mucosa?
A: Oral mucosa is the name of
the soft, red-pink tissue that lines
the inside ofyour mouth. It has two
functions: it protects the
underlying tissue and it receives
and transmits sensory information
like heat and cold to the nervous
system. There are three types of
oral mucosa: liningmucosa, which
covers the lips, the inside of the
cheeks, the soft palate and the area
under the tongue; masticatory
mucosa, which lines the gums and
the hard palate; and gustatory
mucosa, which is on the top of the
Oral mucosa has two layers of
tissues. The top layer is called
epithelium, which is found on

other parts ofthe body, like the skin
and the lining of the digestive tract.
Beneath the epithelium is a
supporting layer of connective
tissue that contains blood vessels
and nerves. Alveolar mucosa
covers the part of the jaw in which
the teeth sit, and gingival mucosa is
the tissue that covers the roots of
the teeth.
In a healthy mouth, gingival
tissue is tight against the teeth and
protects the area beneath from
invasion by bacteria. If bacteria
and food particles get trapped at
the junction of the gingival and the
teeth, gum disease can take root.
Talk with your dentist about ways
to keep the inside of your mouth

Capital City Bank gives boost to

local Girl Scouts
Special to Alachua County Today

On Jan. 4, 2008, Capital
City Bank Foundation
presented Girl Scouts of
Gateway Council with a check
for $1,750 in support of
financial assistance for girls.
Financial assistance is available
for registered girls, who, for
whatever reason, find it difficult
to pay the costs associated with
the Girl Scout program. The
council maintains a financial
grant fund to underwrite some
or all of the following: day and
summer camps, membership
fees, program books, program
activities and uniform
In 2007, financial assistance
awarded to girls' living in
Alachua, Suwannee, Dixie,
Levy, Gilchrist, Clay and
Bradford counties exceeded
$26,000. The Girl Scouts
Gateway Council expressed
thanks to the local Capital City

Alachua County's springs.
The intent of the proposed bill is to establish
a pilot program for the protection of springs in
Marion County, which may serve as a model for
other springs in the state.
Using Marion County as a place for
experimentation may be the best route.
"Trying to do something statewide is just too
much," said Fay Baird from the Santa Fe River
Springs Basin Working Group.
Springs were not originally included in water
protection legislation because they are not
considered to be an impaired body of water,
Baird said.
If the bill is implemented, successful, and
then passed in Alachua County, the
Environmental Protection Department will be
forced to create a delineation of the springshed
problem areas and propose adoption of basin
management action plans.
Alachua County is already ahead of the game
and proposes to have a map of springshed
delineation by the beginning of January, said
county water quality manager Robin Hallbourg.
The bill draft also contains additional spring
protection measures. These provisions include,
among other things, that the Department develop

onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems
that would be evaluated by a state licensed septic
tank contractor or plumber every five years.
If systems do not meet the requirements, they
are forced to be repairedand modified.
Alachua County is already preparing to
update its septic tank system requirements.
By adding springs to state water protection
legislation, local governments may be able to get
assistance from the state. According to the
legislations draft, the state can "assist in the
implementation of surface water improvement
and management plans" for eligible projects.
If the draft passes, Marion County will need
to begin implementing management plans to
reduce adverse impacts to the springs no later
than Dec. 31, 2010.
Representatives of the Santa Fe River
Working. Group approve of the idea to use this
type of legislation and are hopeful that something
similar will be passed in Alachua County.
Springs Initiative Administrator Connie
Bersol said, "If we can do it, and we know that
this is coming up, then it's a good idea to use this
as our pilot program. This is encouraging."

Car burglaries are very
difficult cases to solve as there is
usually very little physical
evidence left behind after one
occurred. The crimes usually
occur in the early morning hours
in apartment or business parking
lots when it is less likely the
thieves will be seen. In order to
help reduce the risk of becoming
a victim of a car burglary, please

A message from the desk of

Sheriff Sadie Darnell

Preventing car burglaries

follow these easy. tips.
* ALWAYS close your windows
and lock your, car doors. An
open window or unlocked door
is an invitation to a criminal.
* Park in well lit areas close to
the building. While parking in
an isolated spot may reduce the
risk of door dings, a criminal
looks for cars parked out of the
way in order to help ensure less
attention is drawn to them.

* ALWAYS remove loose, valu-
ables from your vehicle. This
includes purses, wallets, cell-
ular phones, laptop computers
and briefcases. A car burglar
loves to see items that can be
grabbed easily and carried
away without much effort. A
brick through the window is all
it takes to gain access to those
loose items.

* Report suspicious persons seen
wandering around in parking
lots or looking into cars as they
walk by. Don't hesitate to call
911 to report suspicious
persons, you can even call and
remain anonymous.
* Keep lists of serial numbers for
your commonly used elec-
ironic equipment including
model number and item

to Interim High Springs Police Chief Gordon Fulwood.
Traffic Homicide Investigators were able to
positively determine that Henely was leaving High
Springs when the accident occurred, Fulwood said.
Shortly before the accident, Maxon left an Alachua bar
and headed toward High Springs.
Based on witness statements and physical evidence,
investigators believe alcohol was a contributing factor
in the crash which has left both drivers hospitalized.
Henley is reportedly in stable condition while
Maxon is listed in critical condition.

* Santa Fe tallies sixth
win in eight games
Today Sports Writer
LIVE OAK After a three-game
slump in mid-December, the Santa
Fe High School boys basketball
team has since won six of its last
eight games. On Tuesday night, the
Raiders visited Live Oak Suwannee
and earned a 64-47 victory behind a
24-point performance from junior
guard Stephon Lott.
"Stephon got a lot of points," said
Raider head coach Elliot Harris.
"It's not really an
performance, it's
a team perfor-
mance. Stephon
was on the
receiving end of a
lot of run outs,
Harris but the guys
around him
scrapped and got some steals.
Stephon got run outs, easy baskets
and that allowed us to get ahead and
get a comfortable lead."
The Raiders jumped out to an
early 12-2 lead, but the home team
quickly pulled to within four later in
the first period. Santa Fe (12-5, 6-1)
managed to push its advantage back
to 16-10 at the end of the opening
Lott especially shined in the
second period where he collected a
couple of transition buckets and a
three pointer to fuel a 19-6 run by his
team before halftime. Lott netted 12
of his team's 19 second-period
points to give his team a 35-16 lead

Today Sports Writer
The Newberry High
School girls

hasn't had a
smooth beginning
to the 2008 portion of its 2007-
08 season.
The Panthers were scheduled
to open the New Year with a
pair of games in the City of
Rivers Tournament in
Jacksonville on Jan. 4 and Jan.
5, but that didn't happen due to
a lack of communication on the
part of the tournament officials,
according to Newberry head

coach Scott Frisina.
But Newberry didl finally
take to the court on Tuesday
night for the first time since
Dec. 22.
However, the Panthers faced
undefeated P.K. Yonge, Class

ranked team,
and suffered

After its
long break Newberry might
have been better suited playing
another opponent to get back
into game action, but the
timing of the contest wasn't a

factor to Frisina.
"They're a tremendous ball
club, they should win our
district and have a lengthy run
in the regional playoffs," said
Frisina, whose team has been
outscored 138-40 in two

Don't even get Mikey started
on the farce "Plus-One" theory.
If there were something so
ridiculous in place, can you
imagine the chaos right now
over a Georgia, USC or
Missouri being left out of a shot
to play LSU this weekend?
Simply put, for all of you
college football fans out there,
(cover your eyes if you're not
willing to step out of the box
and see the truth) we can choose
to add whatever postseason
scheme in the world (BCS,
eight-team playoff, 16-team
playoff, "Plus-One," etc.) to
college football and it still
wouldn't change the fact that
some or most of the teams up
for discussion played a putrid
schedule to get there.
Undefeated Hawaii (12-0)?
No disrespect to the Warriors,
but they played the 111th (out of
117, mind you) toughest
schedule in the country that
included teams like Northern
Colorado, Louisiana Tech (a
team that took Hawaii to OT)
and Charleston Southern.
Now that's a joke.
Ohio State, who endured the

38th toughest schedule that
included Youngstown State,
Akron, Washington and Kent
Yeah, that's Murder's Row,
for sure.
You see, there are two
problems at work here.
First, the networks (the
current offender being Fox)
have way too much say so into
who plays where, and for what.
I mean, regardless of who
won the title this year, I think
we all agree that Georgia versus
USC in the Rose Bowl would
have been eons better than what
the Rose Bowl excreted .this
The other problem is the lack
of accountability in scheduling
So, Negative Mikey you ask,
what is the solution?
Well, I'm glad you asked.
First of all, everyone can just
sit down, shut up and hold on
for the next two years, because
nothing is changing with the
current BCS system until their
contract with Fox which runs
through the 2009 season and
2010 bowls is fulfilled.
However, right now is
actually the perfect time to start
a new system, so that when
2010 gets here, we're ready to

That's because a playoff is
certainly the answer, but it goes
much deeper than that folks.
Let's start with an eight-team,
FBS (Football Bowl
Subdivision) Championship
Series, shall we?
First, all major college
football schedules should drop
back to 11 games from 12.
Second, all major conferences
that haven't so far, should
immediately institute a
conference championship game,
And, since most everyone's
excuse about their weak
schedule is that "it was created
two years in advance," now's
the perfect time to alert
everyone that come 2010, your
schedule ranking at the end of
the 2010 season will determine
whether or not you make it into
the new eight-team FBS
Championship Series
That will give everyone
plenty of time to get things
squared away.
Next, you remove all other
polls from deciding the eight
teams, except two, and neither
poll would be released until six
weeks into the season to prevent
bad teams from starting too high

and good teams from starting
too low.
One poll would be made up of
a paid selection committee that
is actually regulated and is held
accountable to watch, at the
very least, highlights of all
major college games (by the
way, Mikey would apply for
that gig immediately), and
another that is comprised of just
one computer poll that figures
the strength of schedule.
I never have figured out why
they have half-dozen computers
involved in the BCS Poll
I mean, if you put the same
parameters into the software,
wouldn't all the computers
come up with the same answers
Get rid of 41al the subjective
parameters, -load all the
parameters into one computer
and hit start.
From there, the two polls
would be merged so that the
only one official poll would
reflect a true barometer of the
best teams in America.
Now that we've done all the
ground work, we can start to
sort the 2010 postseason out.
First, all six of the big
conference (SEC, ACC, Big-

Ten, Big XII, Big East and
PAC-10) champions are
automatic seeds.
The other two remaining.
spots (settle down WAC,
Conference USA, Mid-
American, Mountain West, Big
Sky and Sun Belt fans, I haven't
forgot about you) would be
filled by the highest-ranking
non-big conference school if
they land within the top 15.
Otherwise, the two highest-
ranking teams from the big six -
not already seeded would be
What about the Independents,
like Notre Dame?
Get off your high horse (and
big TV contract with NBC) and
get a conference if you want to
play with the big boys.
Then, instead of the current
month-long layoff between the
regular season and the bowls,
the FBS Championship Series
would begin two weeks after the
conclusion of the regular
In a rotating fashion each year
between current big BCS bowls,
No.1 would play No.8 (Sugar),
No.2 would play No.7 (Rose),
No.3 would play No. 6 (Fiesta)
and No. 4 would play No.5

One of the four bowl sites
would be designated the host for
the FBS .Championship Series
Final Four.
In keeping tradition in college
football in place, which I am
still in 100-percent agreement,
the rest of the bowls (maybe not
quite 32, but that's a whole
other column) would divvy up
the remaining teams and play
like normal (just two weeks
Yes, that's two extra games at
the end of the season, but since
we eliminated one game of the
regular season, we're only
really talking about one extra
game for only two teams.
And, since we moved the
bowls up two weeks, the season
is practically the same length in
All of this, you understand, is

To our readers:

Alachua County Today has been privileged to bring our readers
award winning local sports coverage every week. However, due to
changing market conditions, Alachua County Today has made a most
difficult decision to discontinue the weekly sports section. Due to this
change, this week's Alachua County Today will be the last edition
featuring a sports. section.
While market demands have led us to this decision, we are excited to
announce that we are refocusing our efforts and will be providing you,
our reader, with more in-depth news coverage than ever before. It is the
hope of the Alachua County Today staff that our readers will be
encouraged by this change and our commitment to you.
Although Alachua County Today will no longer publish a sports
section, at least for the time being, we encourage our many community
correspondents and supporters to send in pictures and information
about special events and milestones, as well as sporting events.
Alachua County Today is committed to publish these submissions as
space and time allows.
We thank all of our readers, community supporters, and those who
have taken the time to provide us with sports information to share with
the heartland communities., Your support over the life of this
publication has been unwavering and heartening.

Most sincerely,

The final quarter was not
much different from the third.
Santa Fe's freshman guard C.J.
Wakeley saw plenty of playing
time and led his team in the
quarter with eight points.
The Bulldogs outscored the
visitors 19-14 in the fourth
quarter, however the game was
never in jeopardy for the
Raiders. Santa Fe dropped six
three pointers in the game while
Suwannee couldn't manage to
score from downtown. The
Raiders were 6-for-10 from the
free thrown line and the
Bulldogs were 5-for-7.
"We got a win and that's a
positive," leveled Harris. "We
have about three weeks before

post season play and we've got
a lot of work to do."
The win helps the Raiders in
trying to secure the top spot in
Class 4A, District-3. Santa Fe's
lone district defeat came by the
hands of Bradford last month.
If the Raiders win their
remaining three district
contests, including a rematch
with Bradford, they will tie for
the top seed for the tournament.
At that point tiebreaker rules
will be enforced to determine
the No. 1 seed in the district.
"We want the No.1 seed in
the district," flatly stated Harris.
"District games are what really

important games on the
schedule. It's real important
that we come out and win our

then scored four straight points
to push Williston's lead to 54-44
with 2:11 remaining. Devin
Timmons' layup with 44
seconds left to play gave the
home team a 58-47 cushion as
Williston claimed the win.
"We better be ready to go
every night," Baker said. "I
don't think we really were ready
to go tonight, but Williston was
and maybe that's why we didn't
look like we were ready."
Ivey finished with eight

Ryan Brown and Antonio

Antonio Brown also had eight
"I think the kids are down,"
Baker said. "The only thing that
really bothers me is right now I
don't think the chemistry is
there and that was this group's
strong point."
Newberry will look to get
back on track Thursday night,
as P.K. Yonge, Class 3A's ninth-
ranked club, comes to William
N. Barry Gymnasium for a
crucial District 5-3A contest at
7:30 p.m. The following night
the Panthers face Naples
Golden Gate at 6 p.m. in the
opening game of the Bobcat
Shootout at Buchholz. On

Tuesday, Jan. 15 Newberry
travels to Fort White for a'
district game at 7:30 p.m.
before hosting Santa Fe the
following night at 7:30 p.m.
In Newberry's first action to
start off the 2008 portion of its
schedule, the Panthers edged
Coral Gables 58-55 in the first
game of the Dante Anderson
Memorial Invitational at
Eastside on Sat. Jan 5.
Antonio Brown drained a
three-pointer from the right
comer as Newberry came away
with the last-second win despite
leading by 11 points with 4:32
left to play.
"It was one of the biggest
shots I've ever taken," Antonio
Brown said. "I was just happy
we could come out with the win
because we needed it; we were
on a little losing streak, we had
lost two straight. We knew we
needed a win right here to get
our confidence up."
The Panthers led 31-19 at
halftime and held their biggest
lead of the game, 37-23 with
3:32 left in the third quarter.
Newberry carried a 39-29
advantage into the fourth
quarter and still maintained a
52-41 edge with 4:32 remaining
in the game.
But that is when things got
interesting. ,
The Cavaliers (8-7) scored
six points in nine seconds as
Julian Karadas hit a pair of free

throws, followed by two steals
and two straight layups. That
quick burst trimmed
Newberry's lead to 52-47 at
4:16 mark before a layup from
Karadas made it 52-49 with
3:20 to go.
The Panthers still clung to a
slight lead before Ja Juan
Smith's scoop in the lane tied
the game at 55-55 with 56
seconds left. Guy Brown
missed a pair of free throws
with 21 seconds left that would
have put Newberry in front, but
the Cavs failed to score on their
ensuing trip, which set up the
exciting finish with 2.3 seconds
Robinson in bounded the ball
on the far sideline and hit a
cutting Woods, who got the ball
to Antonio Brown in the comer.
"I give him all the credit in
the world. It was a huge shot,
we needed it," said Baker, who
drew up the final play during
the final timeout of the game. "I
think our kids played pretty
well today considering that was
our first game in two weeks. I
thought coming off the lay off
we had played pretty well and
then I think we let our focus
down for about a four-minute
stretch there."
Ryan Brown led Newberry
