2009 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Commission of Florida, Inc. Established in 1984, the mission of the MLK Commission is to continue the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by advocating and promoting nonviolently, the elimination of poverty, racism, and to promote social and economic justice in Alachua County and the state of Florida.
This year’s King Celebration features the theme “Living the Dream, 45 years later.” There will be activities throughout the month of January. For a complete schedule of the 2009 King Celebration please click here.
During the past twenty five years, the MLK Commission of Fl., Inc., has accomplished the following:
Established a week of activities in 1985 which commemorates the death and celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In 1986, the commission completed the Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial Gardens located in downtown Gainesville.
In 1986, the Martin Luther King, Jr., Hall of Fame was created which recognizes local citizens who have demonstrated and espoused those principles and deeds of Dr. King. To date, twenty nine individuals have been enshrined in the Hall of Fame.
In 1988, Highway 441 was re-named the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Highway by the state legislature, reaching more than 30 miles through Alachua County from Columbia County to Marion County.
To recognize the academic achievements, civic involvement, and leadership of high school seniors, the Edna M. Hart Keeper of the Dream Scholarship Award was established in 1989. Since then, nearly $53 thousand in scholarships have been awarded.
The MLK, Commission was instrumental in spearheading the naming of the new $1.5 Million multipurpose center built by the City of Gainesville in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The MLK, Commission of Florida, Inc., has also sponsored workshops on culture diversity, education and restoration of civil rights for ex-felons.
They were instrumental in the successful implementation of the charter officer for equal opportunity for the City of Gainesville.
They collaborated with the University of Florida Office of the President with a “Helping Our Neighbors Holiday Program”, that provided food baskets to needy families in our smaller cities.
Finally, the MLK Commission created an $8,000 educational endowment with Santa Fe College for burned out residents of the Kennedy Homes apartment complex in Gainesville, Florida.

San Felasco Park Interpretive Shelter Ribbon Cutting

The public and the media are invited to a ribbon cutting for the opening of a new interpretive shelter at Alachua County’s San Felasco Park. The ceremony will be held on Thursday, January 22, 2009 at 2 p.m. at the park located at 6400 N.W. 43rd Way, Gainesville. The entrance is located at the end of NW 43rd Way behind WCJB TV 20 off of NW 43rd Street. Refreshments will be served.
The interpretive shelter is one of a number of items the National Park Service required the County to construct when the federal government deeded the property to Alachua County. The interpretive shelter is an open air structure providing environmental education information concerning the park and the surrounding area. The display highlights the importance of the various plant communities found in the park such as cypress swamp, pine flat woods, upland hammock, and temporary ponds. It includes a section on why fire is good for certain plant communities found in the park. The interpretive material will help visitors gain a deeper appreciation for the park and for the environment.
For more information about the park and the ribbon cutting contact Alachua County Parks/Open Space Superintendant Rob Avery at 352-374-5245.e

Petroleum Contamination

Alachua County has over 398 reported cases of petroleum contamination.  A lot of this contamination is caused by old, leaky underground storage tanks, dispenser piping, and/or hardware malfunctions.
Alachua County Environmental Protection Department, under contract with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection Department (FDEP,) is working to clean-up diesel and gas related contamination in Alachua County.  Alachua County is one of only 14 “Local Programs” in FDEP’s Petroleum Cleanup Program. This state-funded but locally managed program is part of a statewide effort to identify, assess, and clean-up contamination that has been discharged on or under the ground here in the County. Much of the work performed by Alachua County’s Petroleum Program is office-based and includes working together with private contractors from all over the state in efforts to eliminate diesel and gas contamination.  The Program provides technical oversight of clean-up activities and fiscal oversight of state funds provided for the clean-up. Over $4 million are spent on petroleum cleanup annually in Alachua County. 
The average citizen may not come in contact with the staff of the Petroleum Program on a regular basis and may not know it even exists. What citizens may have noticed is that  many current and former fueling stations around the county have small fenced off compounds housing machinery, portable buildings, emission stacks, electrical pumps, and PVC piping. Many of these compounds are remediation systems designed to clean up diesel and gas from the groundwater and soil.
The remediation systems that you see above the ground are commonly only the tip of the iceberg as far as what’s going on at each location. They are usually connected to a series of underground piping, wells and pumps that are designed to clean up soil and groundwater while reducing the disturbance to the land and business activities.
Alachua County’s Petroleum Program also has a Tanks Compliance Inspector. The inspector monitors underground storage tank replacement and construction activities to ensure that state and local regulations are followed. To prevent continued release of petroleum contamination into the environment, the FDEP has set a deadline for upgrading all existing underground tanks and dispenser piping by the end of 2009. The deadline requires all underground tanks and fuel dispensers to have a secondary containment strategy. This often means installing tanks and piping with two sets of outer walls.  Secondary containment allows gas-station operators and regulatory agencies to detect tank and piping malfunctions before the petroleum is released to the environment.  Alachua County has less than 20 tanks left to upgrade before the FDEP deadline.
Alachua County’s Petroleum Program also works together with the Alachua County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center to collect and recycle unused and unwanted heating oil from homes in the county, free of charge to residents.  For more information on Alachua County Environmental Protection Department’s Petroleum Cleanup Program please call 352-264-6800 or go to the link: http://www.alachuacounty.us/government/depts/epd/pollution/petroleum.aspx.

Public Safety Receives Special Training

The potential for a terrorist attack and how best to respond is always on the minds of first responders. In November, the Alachua County Department of Public Safety and Gainesville Fire Rescue joined together to train on responding to chemical and biological weapons.
In a bus valued at 3.5 million dollars which once belonged to Patti LaBelle and Greg Allman, public safety personnel were able to train with an interactive simulated patient. The bus is owned by the Emergency Medicine Learning and Resource Center and contracted by the Department of Health through grant funds to provide this critical training to first responders. The Department of Health is sending the bus all over Florida to train all medical first responders. The bus uses a simulated patient interacting with computer programs which provide a life-like scenario which first responders may not otherwise see. The patient speaks, coughs, vomits, bleeds and has breath sounds and a heartbeat. The ability for first responders to recognize symptoms indicative to a terrorist attack is imperative to immediately address an attack which could affect thousands of people. This training provides one more tool for first responders to act quickly and efficiently in protecting the welfare of all our citizens.

4-H Community Service Project

Alachua County 4-H members are collecting stamps to donate to Habitat for Humanity in Florida. Volunteers package the stamps to sell to collectors. The funds raised are used to help build homes. So far, two homes have been built from funds raised from collected stamps.
If you are like many people, who save interesting stamps, but don’t ever do anything with them, or have used stamps taking up space in drawers and would like to donate them, you can mail them to the 4-H Office at 2800 NE 39th Avenue, Gainesville, FL 32609. If you cut the cancelled stamps (not metered stamps) from the envelopes, leave at least ¼ inch of paper around the stamps. 
For more information, please contact Matt Benge at mbenge@alachuacounty.us or call 352-955-2402.

Rethinking Your Behavior

If you are a curbside customer, The Waste Watcher wants you to begin the year rethinking your effect on the trash cycle. Here are a few reminders to help you embrace zero waste:
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink
Your Blue Bin is for lid-free plastic bottles, jugs, jars and tubs (#’s 1 thru 7) glass, and metal containers. Please remember to wash your empty containers. At this time, we do not collect clear brittle plastic (i.e. berry containers). We have also begun to collect yogurt and butter tubs.
Your Orange Bin is for paper products. No pizza boxes or paste board (i.e. cereal, gift, shoe and beverage boxes) —but you can compost them.
Pick up your free compost bins at Public Works. We also have a simple instructional pamphlet to start you off composting. Remember, to embrace zero waste!
Please remember. Absolutely no plastic bags anywhere in your curbside recycling (take them to your local grocery stores for recycling).
– Gayle Perry
