Sheriff's complaint about



Troiano headed to investigation


By BRYAN BOUKARI
Today Reporter
ACHUA - Citizens living in the
well Park area in conjunction with
chua Police used National Night Out
O) to help stomp out crime in their


the letter, dated July
16, to High Springs
City Manager
Jim Drumm,
discussing two
matters. One issue
is a disagreement ..,
between herself and
Police Chief Jim
Troiano regarding Troiano
the use of grant
funds administered by the Sheriff's
Office. The second issue concerns
the way Troiano spoke to one of her
employees during a recent phone
conversation.


While rumors began to circulate of
the possibility that Troiano may have
misappropriated grant funds, he stated
this was absolutely not true.
Drumm confirmed this, explaining
that because the city must first spend
a grant allocation out of pocket and
is then reimbursed for expenses, it
would be virtually impossible for
Troiano to have used money illegally.
Regardless, Troiano still questions
the sheriff's rationale for denying
his request to use portions of the
department's Byrne Grant money to

with sexual assault,


kidnapping, battery
By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter


NEWBERRY - A
Newberry man was arrested
early Sunday on charges of
kidnapping, sexual assault
and battery.
Earl Nesbit, 49, is
accused of forcing a woman
to stay in his house from 11
p.m. to 7 a.m., according to
an arrest report.
Nesbit and the victim
had been arguing for the
past two days about a
church trip to Philadelphia.
She wanted to go, but
Nesbit refused to let her go.
The argument grew
more heated Saturday night
and Nesbit told her she was
not allowed to leave for the
trip or even leave the house.


Nesbit
He followed her as she
walked around the house,
standing close to her and,
at one point, lying on top of
her on the couch to keep her
from getting up, according
to the report.
The victim said she

HIGH SPRINGS - For
the past year, property
owners in the City of High
Springs have been paying a
6.15 percent tax rate on the
value of their real estate.
That rate will not go any
higher with the new City
budget.
After spending Monday
night and about another
three hours Tuesday night
going through a preliminary
line-by-line review of
the proposed 2010-2011
fiscal year budget, the city
commission concluded
its Aug. 3 meeting with a
unanimous vote in favor
of setting, and in effect


keeping, the maximum
millage rate at 6.15 percent.
Over the next two
months, the commission
will hold a series of special
budget meetings to fine-tune
the spending allocations
and revise proposed cuts.
Two of these meetings will
specifically re-address the
property tax rate.
The first will be a public
hearing on Sept. 9, where
commissioners will listen
to citizen input regarding
the rate, and they will then
vote on a tentative number.
The third and final step
in the process of setting
the millage rate will take
place Sept. 27 when the

Local school for autistic


children set to open


By GLENN COINE
Today Reporter
HIGH SPRINGS -ThoughAlachua
County boasts some of the best public
schools in the state, the system has
limited options for students with special
needs.
Seeing a need for a local alternative
- a need they have themselves - two
Lacrosse parents are opening a private,
non-profit school in High Springs for
children with autism.
Imagine what it might be like to not
be able to communicate with one's son or
daughter, to deal with constant outbursts
of rage or to have a child who will not
look you in the eye or speak.


Autism refers to a group of
developmental brain disorders called
Pervasive Developmental Disorders.
There are varying degrees of severity, and
the disorder often manifests in nuances
unique to each patient. But generally, the
symptoms reflect a difficulty or inability
to socialize and communicate.
Patients of all ages often seem
socially awkward and quirky, and
sometimes they appear to be in their own
world.
For parents of autistic children, the
disorder can be daunting. There is still
little known about what causes it, and
there is no cure. Treatment options are

Batters Up!


By CRAIG COX
Today Reporter
ALACHUA- Scores of
softball players are arriving
in the city of Alachua for
their shot at the Babe Ruth
Softball 12U World Series
title, which begins Friday at
Alachua City Hall.
Area officers will escort
the teams to Camp Kulaqua
in High Springs so the
teams can meet and enjoy
"Friendship Fun Day."
Later Friday, the teams will
participate in the Banquet
of Champions.
The first game is set
for Saturday at 10 a.m.,
when the Middle Atlantic
champion faces the
Midwest Plains champion.
Four other games will be
played Saturday, including
the City of Alachua's team,
which will play the Pacific
Northwest champion at 7
p.m.
The teams of young
players will be whittled
away, game-by-game, to
one champion, with the
final showdown set for
Saturday, Aug. 14.
In recent months, the
city has been renovating
Alachua's Hal Brady
Recreation Center,
including everything from
paving the parking lot
to adding new fencing,
in anticipation of the


tournament, which is
expected to bring in
thousands of family
members and fans along
with millions of dollars for
the local economy.
To host the tournament,
cities must pay $40,000
on top of other preparation
costs. The costs are actually
the responsibility of the
host organization, which
is the Santa Fe Babe Ruth
program.
However, the City
of Alachua, the Alachua
Chamber of Commerce,
the Gainesville Sports
Commission, Walmart,
Sysco, Dollar General
and Santa Fe Ford have
committed to provide
financial and in-kind
support for the tournament.
The city hosted the
Bambino World Series -the
male version of the Babe
Ruth World Series - in
1992, and Alachua was the
first city in Florida to host
that tournament as well.
The 1992 tournament
brought nine teams and
thousands of visitors, who
filled 10 area hotels, into
the city.

informants.

Questionable behavior
named as real priority
Damell said people should
remember that the intended focus of
her letter was in fact the phone call
incident, and not the grant issue.
Though she and Troiano are in
disagreement about appropriate uses
for the money, the reason she wrote
the letter was first and foremost to
bring to Drumm's attention what she
deemed to be highly inappropriate
behavior on the chief's part.
Drumm also said, "The question
[now] isn't over whether funds
should or shouldn't be awarded -
it's how the conversation went and
whether it crossed a line to become
unprofessional or even offensive."
The two law enforcement officials
continue to disagree on the grant, the
nature of the conversation and now on
what the real issue is.
Damell reiterated the sentiment of
her letter, saying, "The main issue is
his, not only inappropriate behavior,
but disturbing behavior."
According to the letter, Troiano
had called Kelly Amerson, the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office
grants administrator, to "voice his
displeasure" over Darnell's position
on using grant funds for confidential
informants.
Damell's letter states that
Amerson was "extremely disturbed
by the tone and nature of his tirade,"
and she described it as a "Mel Gibson
type of rant and rage." He was
yelling at her, said he was "going to
bring her down," referring to Darnell.
He threatened to contact various
politicians and media outlets and later
hung up on Amerson, the letter states.
In a letter Troinano wrote to
Drumm in response to Darnell's
letter, as well as in a later interview,
Troiano repeatedly said that he is
confident Amerson would have come
to him directly if she was upset or
had a problem. He said that when the
conversation ended, it was on good
terms.

School to open


often expensive and or inaccessible.
Unwilling to settle for the options the
public school system offered for their
son, Marie Trempe and Rob Cecil began
to pursue parent-implemented autism
treatment programs.
Based on their family's experience and
success with intensive home-based therapy,
they set out to share the opportunity by
founding the Autism Oasis for Kids.
After battling cancer as a 21-month-
old, closely followed by an extremely rare
auto-immune disorder called Opsoclonus-
myoclonus syndrome, or OMS, their son
was eventually diagnosed as autistic at age
7.
Trempe explained that public schools
were not able to give her son what he
needed, and after researching and taking


classes and developing a home program
that was working for him, he eventually
began to express a desire for interaction
with children his own age. He wanted
friends.
It was also becoming increasingly
difficult to find ways of paying for the
various therapies and classes Trempe was
relying on to help care for her son.
This is what led her and Cecil to the
idea of starting a school, which would
allow them to continue to provide for their
son while opening up an opportunity for
other families in need. Now they will be
able to access grant funding options, too.
Set to open Aug. 23, the school is a
registered non-profit corporation and is
located at 205 S. Main Street on the edge
of downtown High Springs.

Trempe said they chose the city based
first on its central location. "We're serving
six counties," she said. "We're getting
people from Trenton, Bell, Keystone and
Fort White, in addition to the Gainesville
area."
The second reason for choosing High
Springs was that she found it to be the
most hospitable. When she first called for
information, she said her call was returned
within an hour with a list of seven different
possible properties to house the school.
They went above and beyond, she said, to
help her through the process.
The school is open to students ages six
to 16, and classes will be grouped based
on the severity and characteristics of each
student's disorder rather than structured by
standard grade level according to age.

Factoring in the recent drop

City Manager Jim
Drumm, who prepared the
budget proposal, explained
that he did so using the 6.15
percent rate at the direction
of the commission. Drumm
said that setting 6.15 as
the maximum rate could
further limit commissioners
on how they can revise the
budget as a whole.
If the commissioners
want to prevent some of the
proposed cuts, as they have
suggested, they will have
to find another source of
revenue to make up for the

didn't resist out of fear
that Nesbit would become
physically violent.
At 3 a.m., Nesbit took
the victim from the couch
to the bedroom and forced
her to have sex with him.
The victim made two
cell phone calls to police
while in the bathroom but
didn't say anything out of
fear that Nesbit, who was
standing just outside of
the bathroom door, would
overhear her. She made the
first call at 3:23 a.m. and
the second one at 5:50 a.m.
After she realized the
police had not responded to
the first two calls, she texted
to other people to call the
police. Police arrived soon
after that.
Nesbit was taken to
the Alachua County Jail.
At the jail changing room,
Nesbit refused to take off
his clothes and change into
jail clothing. After Nesbit
refused several orders,
police removed Nesbit's


loss in tax money.
"Cuts are severe, and
it's really going to affect
the level of service in
the city," said Drumm,
"but ultimately it's the
commission's call."
Mayor Bill Coughlin
and Commissioner Larry
Travis both said that while
they personally could
manage to foot the bill for
a small rate increase, they
understand that at this
time, given the state of
the economy, many High
Springs citizens could not.
Commissioners Eric
May, Dean Davis and John
Hill all agreed they could
not, in good conscience,
and would not vote for an
increase.

Hawthorne finalizes contract


with city attorney


By ALEX AUSTIN
Today Reporter
HAWTHORNE
Hawthorne Commissioners
approved a new contract
for Interim City Attorney
Audrie Harris Tuesday by a
vote of 3-2.
This new contract is
similar to her previous
contract as interim city
attorney with the exception
that she will now attend
workshops and Community
Redevelopment Agency
(CRA) meetings. Her
monthly retainer will
remain at $2,500 per
month, and she will still


charge the rate of $100 per
hour for any representation
of the city in state or federal
court or administrative
proceedings.
Harris has served as
interim city attorney since
May 2009. Commissioner
Harry Carter proposed to
offer her a new contract at
the July 20 city commission
meeting.
Commissioners
DeLoris Roberts and
William Carlton opposed
offering Harris a new
contract. Both supported
opening up the position
to other applicants, in the


same way that the search
for a city manager was
handled.
Carlton argued that
the commission should at
least open up the position
for competition, given the
large sum of money the
position demanded.
But Carlton and Roberts
were outvoted by Carter,
Mayor Eleanor Randall and
Vice Mayor Matt Surrency.
Roberts voiced two
reservations about Harris,
referencing the way
Harris handled conflicts
with former Interim City
Manager Linda Rice


Chapman and former
City Planner Kelly
Moosbrugger. However,
Roberts said even though
she had disagreements
with Harris, she respected
Harris' knowledge of the
policies and was always
able to disagree without
losing that respect.
The commission still
retains the right to fire
the city attorney or city
manager at any given time,
with 30 days of mandatory
notice.

A perfect storm

Like nature itself, marriage has cycles. I write this column
the day after the 29th anniversary of the day I married the
most sweet, infuriating, wonderful, irritating man I've ever
known.
On this same day, there was a storm of epic proportions
that blew through our small town. It was magnificent and
exciting, scary and destructive.
We woke up that morning without a clue that there would
be a storm or that it was our anniversary. We'd forgotten so
many anniversaries, because there really was only one, in our
29 years together, when we had planned something exciting:

I warm and tropical. That was
our 25th anniversary - one I will
always remember.
Even then, it was very
difficult to find someone willing
- to mind our kids while we
-7 snagged some much-needed
alone time, so we pretty much
gave up on that idea.
Sometime, around lunch, my
computer reminded me that it
was our anniversary. I laughed,
Laura Snyder thinking that it was a good thing
that we both forgot. Then I
called my husband to wish him a Happy Anniversary.
He hedged, lsn t that tomorrow?"
Nice try. "Nope. Not according to my computer."
My husband has long been of the opinion that computers
are infallible. It's the person driving the mouse that
needs adjusting. So, though he may have questioned my
calculations, he didn't question the validity of the computer's
calculation.
We made plans to have dinner out together that night.
It would be a very short dinner because my 13-year old is
old enough to be left in charge for a short time, but he's not
necessarily responsible enough to refrain from torturing his
younger siblings while we are gone.
It's these kinds of small irritations that lead to the
inevitable storm. While the weather started rumbling outside,
the annoyances of parenthood, the stress of our jobs and
responsibilities, and the pressures of life in general combined
to put us both in a fine temper when we met up later to dress
for dinner.
As the weather reached a crescendo outside our windows,
our voices became loud and irrational. We questioned each
other's intelligence. We took cheap shots at each other. We
cursed at each other, including words we didn't think the
other would know. We made references to the rear end of
certain animals. We questioned each other's parentage and
subsequent doubtful legitimacy.
For a few moments we couldn't stand each other. For a
fraction of a second we wondered if it was all worth it.
The wind and rain raged outside. It threw down limbs and
overturned lawn furniture. Tempers flared. Hurtful words
whirled around us. If there had been something breakable
within reach, I would have thrown it. If he wasn't such a good
man, he might have thrown me.
Then, as quickly as it came, the storm let up. It teared
and pouted in fits and starts, just as we did. The thunder
grumbled in the distance as we lay our heads down to sleep
that night.
The worst was over, the storm had abated, but we carried
within us, throughout the night, the hurt it had caused and the
hope it had inspired.
We awoke to a calm, clear, beautiful morning. The grass
was still wet. The dead limbs had shaken free. The air was
fresh and clear. The evidence of the storm was there; both the
good and the bad. Still, it had passed, just as it had so many
times before.
It was a new day, a fresh beginning. We hugged for a long
time. We healed each other's hurts and whispered words of
encouragement and promise. Then, we started our marriage
all over again... just as we had so many times before.

Spending must be done wisely

I would like to thank Mayor Coerper for his
response to my recent letter published in the Alachua
County Today. I believe it is important to discuss these
issues as a community, and having a commissioner who
is willing to participate is essential to understanding the
philosophy and judgment of those we elect.
I agree that Alachua has been a forward looking city.
The City's investment in infrastructure and business
friendly atmosphere have helped us grow and prosper.
In fact, it is not accurate to say that I ever have been
against the City investing in infrastructure. I have
been on the Downtown Redevelopment Board whose
function is exactly that. I have also supported the new
waste water treatment plant; I have defended the new
city complex; and I didn't say I was against the new
Santa Fe campus here.
So, what is the difference then? The difference is
overspending. When the State comes in and looks over
our shoulder, that's a sign. When we take money from
reserved funds to pay our bills, that's a sign. When we
spend a million dollars more than budgeted on a new
city hall, that's a sign. I'll let pass, for this discussion,
that a new city hall really isn't an investment, but
really an expense. Many times politicians use the word
investment, when it's really just an expense, because it
sounds better. When you get in the shape we're in now,
it's hard to explain it as investment. Responsible people
don't "invest" their way into financial trouble.
Let me repeat what I have said before. I believe
this new commission and administration is on the right
track. I just want us to learn from past mistakes. I want
a recognition that the trouble is not under taxing but
overspending. I want us to recognize we got carried
away, and I want an acknowledgment from our elected
officials that the money they spend is not theirs. It
belongs to the taxpayers, and that makes it essential that
elected officials spend it wisely.
As far as my complaints being only about the last
few years "during the worst economy since the Great
Depression." I need to remind you that this spending
took place while revenues were increasing. And just to
be clear it was the "same devastating news" but we were
one of only eight Florida cities to fall into this category.
With over 400 cities in Florida, we are one of the two
percent to be looked at by the state.
To the point that I was able to make a good living
and build my "dream house high on the hill because
'The Good Life Community' succeeded," I invested
my own money; I took all the risk myself, and I lived
very frugally and still do. In fact, I think I could argue
the opposite happened. "The Good Life Community"
became that because I and others rebuilt it. I started
a successful business, rebuilt dilapidated buildings for
new business, cleaned up neighborhoods, and built new
homes. All of this added to the tax base that then goes
into making the City successful. I and other taxpayers
make this "The Good Life Community." It is my money,
the taxpayers' money, that the City uses to "invest" and
I would like for it to be done responsibly.

National Night Out

National Night Out was celebrated in the City of
Alachua on Tuesday, August 3, at Criswell Park, at
the same time as many other neighborhoods and cities
celebrated across the nation. It takes a community to
unite in order for an event like this happen, and that is
exactly what happened Tuesday night in Alachua, when
we gave crime a "Going Away Party."
Shortly after 5 p.m., police officers, city officials,
residents and children gathered under the shade at the
park to share food, laughter and each others' company.
Balloons and silly bands were a popular item for the
children, and the adults enjoyed hearing the sounds of


the children playing, which is exactly what should be
going on in a city park.
Sometimes, unfortunately, the sounds of children at
play are replaced by criminal activity. We set out last
night to let those involved in the criminal activity know
that we don't want them in our neighborhoods, in our
parks or on our streets.
I would like to thank Horace and Shelisia Jenkins
for working with the Alachua Police Department in
planning this event. I would like to thank The Christ
Central Ministries for their support and dedication
to making the Community better. A special thanks to
Alachua Police Department and Bob's Citgo for the
donation of the food, and Michael "Catfish" Washington
and his staff at the Recreation Department for helping
with the set-up and clean-up of the event.
Thank you for all who attended: residents; Mayor
Gib Coerper; Vice Mayor Gary Hardacre; commissioners
Orien Hill, Ben Boukari, Jr. and Robert Wilford; former
City of Alachua mayor Jean Calderwood; City Manager
Traci Cain; City of Alachua officials and staff; Chief
Joel DeCoursey; Lieutenant Patrick Barcia; the Police
Explorers and the children of the community.
We must work together to keep Alachua safe for our
children and the generations to follow.

Crime Prevention Officer

Support for Amendment 4

In response to the Alachua County Today article
on Amendment 4 that ran last week, I'd like to explain
why I support the measure. Hometown Democracy
Amendment 4 will give taxpayers the right to vote on
changes to already existing comprehensive land use
plans. These are plans that have been determined years
ago to guide the growth of our communities in a planned
and thoughtful way to protect us from land speculators
that make a profit on quick developments and increased
sprawl.
The opposition will continue to use scare tactics to
convince voters that they will be confused and burdened
with hundreds of technicalities on their next ballot.
That's just not the case. The opposition is a campaign
of politicians and big real estate executives that benefit
from the easy passage of new projects- yet we're the
ones left to pay the price.
I'm voting yes on Hometown Democracy
Amendment 4 on the Nov. 2 statewide ballot because
I want a seat at the table - a chance to vote on how
my home and my town are affected by growth. As a
taxpayer, I deserve it.

are recommended.
Picaridin and oil of
lemon eucalyptus are
other repellent options.
* Dress - Wear clothing

'CONNECTing' jobs with Alachua

Interviews that come to you


By BRYAN BOUKARI and
CRAIG COX
Today Reporters
ALACHUA - With an
unemployment rate of 8.4
percent in Alachua County,
area FloridaWorks officials
are branching out to help
people in the outskirts of the
county findjobs.
To accomplish this task,
FloridaWorks will hold
its Creating Opportunities
through Networking New
and Existing Companies
with our region's Talent
(CONNECT) meetings at the
Santa Fe College Center for
Emerging Technologies for
the entire month of August,
giving Alachua and other
area residents an opportunity
to expand their interviewing
skills.
The CONNECT
program is free and creates
networking opportunities
for professionals with
associate of arts degrees
or higher, or five or more
years in a profession, and
human resources recruiters.
Each week, the group offers
attendees insights on job
seeking and transition,
and once a month, human
resources recruiters
conduct mini interviews
for open positions in their
organizations.
The group has hundreds
of active participants, and
typically between 25 and
40 people attend each
event, said Janeen Smith,
spokesperson for Gainesville
Area Chamber of Commerce/
FloridaWorks.
"A lot of people who
have been in a profession
for five years or more are
looking for the job they lost
and aren't thinking about
how to reinvent themselves,"
Smith said.


Joe Johnson, who runs
the CONNECT program,
said that networking is
pivotal in this employment
economy, and the program is
invaluable.
"You don't get a job
the same way you used to,"
Johnson said. "There are so
many different medias and
avenues you have to use now,
and a big one is networking."
Although CONNECT
serves a narrow purpose
of helping area residents
find jobs, it also serves a
broader purpose of keeping
professionals in the area to
fill important jobs as they
become available.
"When a professional is
displaced, their self-worth
goes down," he said. "We
want to keep them here, keep
them energized, and let them
know they are valuable to our
community and workforce."
Johnson said CONNECT
has helped area professionals
find employment accounting
for more than $1.4 million in
salaries since it first began in
June 2009.
"We're trying to make
this community the best it

NIGHT OUT:
Continued from page A 1


Area around hangout has roughly double the crime rate of other areas in city


There seems to be no
question that Criswell
Park was a strategically
selected location for this
year's NNO event which is
designed to raise awareness
of preventative ways of
reducing crime and drugs.
Alachua Police Department
(APD) Detective Carrie
Lund said, "This area has
a high rate of crime and we
want our citizens here to
know that as police officers,
we can help them."
The Tuesday evening get-
together included grilled
hotdogs and snacks. For the
young and young at heart,
Christ Central Ministries
brought along the popular
Silly Bandz and a balloon
artist who created elaborate
flowers, swords, hats and
everything in between.
Joining in on the evening's
campaign were several
familiar faces including
former Alachua mayor Jean
Calderwood, as well as


current Mayor Gib Coerper
and commissioners Orien
Hills and Ben Boukari, Jr.
Led by APD Chief Joel
DeCoursey and City
Manager Traci Cain, area
residents took to the streets
and made a symbolic walk
around the block, including
the 'the tree.'
DeCoursey said the walk
was to serve as a symbolic
gesture to the community
that neighbors were united
with law enforcement in
fighting crime in the area.
The quadrant of the City
of Alachua immediately
surrounding 'the tree' does
indeed have a high crime
rate when compared to that
of other areas of the city.
With roughly 30 crimes
reported in the last three
months, the neighborhoods
around the local hangout
have about twice as many
crimes reported as any
other quadrant of the city's
core area.


Foryears, 'the tree' has been
regarded as a drug haven,
but many who gather there
argue that a few bad apples
have ruined the bunch. In
recent discussions over
the hangout's future, some
people have said it's the
only place they have to go
and it's a place they enjoy
meeting with friends, but
that they aren't engaging in
criminal activity.
Historically, however, 'the
tree' has been the magnet
for those committing
crimes throughout the city.
On occasion, crimes are
reported at 'the tree,' but
more commonly, it's the
place police have found
those they believe to be
responsible for crimes
committed surrounding the
hangout.
Shelisia Jenkins, who
helped to organize Tuesday
evening's NNO cookout
and neighborhood walk
said she is hopeful that


her neighbors will begin
to push away the criminal
elements in her community.
"This event is about
bringing people together


and showing them that our
police are approachable,
and to allow them to get
familiar with the officers."
Jenkins, who grew up
in that neighborhood,
said many of the people
responsible for the crime in
the area know she's always
watching and not afraid to
call the police if she sees
something suspicious. And
that's exactly what she
wants her neighbors to do
as well.
Lund was careful to note
that the area surrounding
'the tree' might have a
higher than average crime
rate, but it's not the only

Top 10 List of SunState Advantages

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

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

#3 You pay lower interest on loans and earn higher dividends on deposits - Banks consistently are among the most
profitable companies in the world. They are in business to make money for their shareholders. Whereas SunState is a not-
for-profit organization and any profits are returned to you in the form of lower fees, higher dividends, and improved service.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Day of Visitation


The Gospel of Saint Luke chapter 19 addresses the end
of Jesus' life and ministry; it records some of Christ's last
thoughts, actions, words and statements before His going
to the cross. This is a moving account of the immeasurable
love of God toward man, toward a sinful world
that rejected the Light and chose darkness.
Jesus is getting ready to enter Jerusalem
for His last time, fully aware that this Passover
feast will be His last-His ministry on earth
will be completed. The agony of the cross is
before Him and He knows what lies ahead.
His purpose on going to Jerusalem wasn't to
reign as King, but to die as a criminal. As
Christ looks at Jerusalem from a distance,
His heart is troubled as He thinks about the
condition of the people in the City of David.
It's hard to imagine continuing to work, THE VEN
knowing that the ministry that God's called LEA:
you to means certain death. But, since Jesus All Saints
not only knows that His mission is to give His Church, G
life as a ransom for sin, He knows that the city A paris
He's about to enter is where He'll be martyred. Christian
Jesus wasn't led by force to Jerusalem, He Ch
wasn't arrested and dragged into the city for
execution-He knew His calling and set Himself to obey
His Father's will.
It's important for Christians to see the motivation
of Christ, to glimpse the sacred heart of our Saviour.
Remember the words of Christ as He looked over the
city of Jerusalem, "If thou hadst known, EVEN THOU,
at least in this thy day, the ;i,, ., which belong unto thy
peace! But now they are hid from thine eyes. " What does
He mean by these words, "IF THOU HADST KNOWN,
EVEN THOU"? It's an expression of familiarity...but also
disappointment, in a once flourishing relationship that's
turned cold and lifeless. It reminds me of the final words

of Caesar in Shakespeare's play, as he sees His friend
among those murdering him, "Et tu, Brute?" (...and you
Brutus?).
Jerusalem was a uniquely special place, an inheritance
for those who, like Abraham, had faith in God.
It was a place set aside for prayer and worship.
The people of God dwelt securely in this city
established by God Himself. But Jerusalem
had lost its first love, while the sacrifices
Continued and the incense still ascended to
heaven. Passover is being prepared in the
city while the Lamb of God stands outside its
walls, prepared by God, to be the satisfaction
for the sins of the people. His words, "If thou
hadst known, EVEN THOU" make us wonder
at the condition of our hearts.
JOHN E. It's our blinded condition that makes the
URE danger of having a lukewarm heart for God
Anglican so much more harmful. It's this condition
ainesville. that Jesus was talking about when He said to
i of the Jerusalem that "the ;hi,,g, pertaining to thy
episcopal peace are hid from thine eyes". Jerusalem
rch didn't feel itself to be in danger or headed for
catastrophe, but its destruction was very near.
The King of Kings announces to the City of God that they
won't have His protection because "they did not know the
day of their visitation"
Is it possible that Jerusalem with all of its religion, its
experts in the Scriptures and its divinely instituted system
of priests could miss its day of visitation? Could the
people of Israel be so blind while worshipping in the midst
of the temple? Is it possible that the Church might also be
so blind to the presence of Christ within it? Obviously!
But what about the sovereignty of God and His providence
concerning the church? In Habakkuk 1:5, God horrifies the
Old Testament church by announcing that He is bringing

the enemy against them, and the enemy will destroy them
and take them as captives. This catastrophe isn't coming
from the devil, but the Lord says that this is His doing.
Never mistake the reality of human responsibility and
develop a false sense of security within the goodness of
God's providence. We need to learn this lesson; God's
presence requires a proper response from us.
It isn't just Jerusalem or the church that falls within the
scope of the text in Luke 19. The day of visitation came
to earth 2,000 years ago in the person of Jesus Christ. But
another day of visitation is coming and Christ will not be
standing at a distance with a sorrowful heart. In the First
Epistle of Saint Peter another day of visitation is announced
and we will all stand before Christ to be judged. It also
makes the point that each individual is responsible for the
initiating work of the Holy Spirit in their lives. This might
be such a day for us to extend empty hands towards our
God who gives Himself to us.

income persons.

In developing an application
for submission to DCA, the
Town must plan to minimize
displacement of persons as
a result of planned CDBG
activities. In addition, the
Town is required to develop
a plan to assist displaced
persons.

A public hearing to receive

In the spring of 1808, a press is unloaded from a
keelboat on the Mississippi riverfront, beginning a
new page in history as a pioneer newspaper begins
the westward expansion of words.
Meet 12-year-old Gabe Martin, a boy forced to
step into adult shoes when his family falls on hard
times. A chance encounter on that muddy riverfront
gives Gabe the opportunity to lend a hand to a
printer's efforts "Pressing West."


Pressing West, A.
Vol.l No.4 4_l _ _ _ _t


EN BY ball with a handle sticking Josephine's older sister,


CHRIS STUCKENSCIINEIDER

Time passed slowly for Gabe
as he worked odd jobs,
longing for the chance to
get back to the Roubidoux
House. When he did, he
was amazed at what he
saw. The wooden press was
stage center, the star of
the show. To the right of
the press stood a cabinet
filled with type cases. Each
type case had a number of
small compartments, one
for each letter of the alpha-
bet, capitals and small
letters.
Robert stood near the type
case placing lead type onto
a( .-i. , , eii'. ,!, W ith his
right hand he selected a
piece of type from its com-
partment in the cabinet.
Then he placed it onto the
composing stick.
"The lad has to memorize
where each piece of type
is in the cabinet," Charless
said. "Robert's doing well,
but he's having trouble
with his p's and q's. With
the type set backward and
upside down, it's a com-
mon error.
"Setting type is a tedious,
complicated job. Once the
composing stick is full, it's
transferred over here, into
a tray called a galley. A
whole page filled with type
can be heavy."
Gabe pointed to what
looked like a bro'. 11 K.il i


out of it, asking Charless
about it.
Robert jumped in. "That's
an ink ball. We'll use it
to ink the type." He knew
something about printing,
having spent time in his
stepfather's other printing

"Back in Ireland, I learned
about printing as an
apprentice," Charless said.
"That's the best way, but
it's a scvcn-year commit-
ment, with a meager wage,
if any It's my hope Robert
here will follow in my foot-
steps, so I'm teaching him
all I can. You're showing an
interest too, Gabe. Maybe
there's ink in your blood
as well. I could use another
assistant."
A printer-editor - a news-
paper man! Gabe's mind
buzzed, but he couldn't let
on that he was interested.
Things at home had taken
a turn for the worse.


Margaret, who lived across
the river in Kaskaskia,
Illinois, had been injured
when a sow knocked her
down and pinned her
against a fence. [, 1~iri.r'
young daughter saw it all.
She grabbed a pitchfork
and drove the sow away.
Margaret was able to drag
herself to safety, but the
accident left her bedfast
with a broken leg.
Margaret wasn't a stranger
to hard times. She'd single-
handcdly raised her daugh-
ter, who was now 7. When
the girl was still in diapers,
Margaret's husband walked
off the family farm and
hadn't been heard from
since. Margaret was plucky
and did the best she could.
To make ends meet, she
sold eggs, vegetables and
milk.
Josephine was overcome
with worry when she got
the news. How was her sis-


ter going to manage, take
care of herself, her daugh-
ter and the farm too.
"You know what you've
got to do," Andre said.
t,.-;-i isn't going to do
any good, Josephine. Make
arrangements to stay with
Margaret. You've put a
few coins aside from the
washing you've been tak-
ing in. Pack a bag for you
and Anne. Gabe and I can
see to the twins and get a
garden in. I'm feeling
better. There's a light at the
end of the tunnel."
For his dad there might be
light, but Gabe felt stuck in
a tunnel closed in at both
ends. Fate had put any
designs he had for a future
at the Gazette on hold.

Be war


of


By DIANE MAITLAND
Social Security
District Manager
Special to
Alachua County Today
These days, everyone
needs to be cautious of
scams - Internet, mail, and
even phone scams - which
can damage your credit
score and pocketbook.
Anytime someone asks for
your personal information,
you should be wary.
Particularly cruel are scams
that target Social Security
beneficiaries.
Recently, Social
Security became aware of a
scam targeting beneficiaries
in the Southern California
area. Scammers telephoned
beneficiaries to tell
them they were due a
"stimulus payment."
The scammer offered to
deposit the payment to
each beneficiary's account
once the personal and bank
account information was
provided. The scammerthen
contacted Social Security
by telephone to request
the benefits be deposited
into a new account - the
scammer's account, to steal
the payments. In a similar
version of this criminal
ploy, the scammer calls the
beneficiary to "confirm" the
beneficiary's personal and
financial information.
As a rule of thumb,
Social Security will not
call you for your personal
information such as your
Social Security number
or banking information.
If someone contacts you
and asks for this kind of
information, do not give it.
You should never
provide your Social
Security number or other
personal information over
the telephone unless you
initiated the contact, or are
confident of the person to
whom you are speaking.

scams


If in doubt, do not release
information without first
verifying the validity of the
call by contacting the local
Social Security office or
Social Security's toll-free
number at 1-800-772-1213
(TTY 1-800-325-0778).
Another way to protect
yourself is to keep your
Social Security card and
other important documents
locked away in a safe
place. Do not give personal
information to just anyone.
Also, check your Social
Security earnings record.
You can request a Social
Security Statement online
at www.socialsecurity.
gov/statement. When you
receive your Statement in
the mail, you can verify the
accuracy of the reported
earnings and request
correction if necessary.
If you've fallen victim
to fraud or identity theft,
be sure to file a report
with the local police or the
police department where
the identity theft took
place, and keep a copy of
the police report as proof
of the crime. Information
on how to prevent scams
and protect yourself can
be found at www.ftc.gov/
idtheft. You can also
read Social Security's
publication, Identify Theft
and Your Social Security
Number, available online
at www.socialsecurity.gov/
pubs/10064.html and Your
Social Security Number
and Card, available at
