Healthy Living Driving back and forth to town from OBrien gives me about 45 minutes to catch up on my podcasts but occasionally I ip on the ra dio. My two favorite stations are the local country station (98.1-FM) and a blend station (94.3-FM). If you see me singing along as Im driving or if you see my dog howling from the passenger seat, youll know Im sing ing. My dog always howls when Im singing. Must be because Im such a good singer! A few days ago as I was running over to a neighbors house to let her dogs out, I was listening to the 94.3 blend station. In between songs, they have segments about living a health ier lifestyle and John Teshs segment in particular intelligence for your life always has a few great nuggets. The healthy lifestyle nugget shared by a female anchor was how your friends can help to strengthen our the gray brain matter. That really got me to thinking how important my friends are in my life. I thoroughly enjoy the time spent with my girlfriends. Yes, my husband is my best friend but when you work with your spouse, there are days when you REALLY want to hang them (him) from a tree out back because they (he) are (is) getting on your (my) last nerve. Many times my girlfriends have talked me off the ledge and my hubby lives to see another day. What really came to mind, though, is that all relationships are a two-way street. I try to make sure my friends know how much I appreciate them but I am going to make it a higher priority going forward after listening to that radio segment.

Arbor Day celebration planned for Friday DOWLING PARK Between the two of them, Dick and Angie Grillo have given more than 65 years of employment to Advent Christian Village. While Angie retired last year, Dick continues as Se nior Director of Commu nity and Church Outreach, and he was recognized recently for 35 years of faithful service. Their years of dedicated service have helped shape Advent Christian Village into a ministry of excellence. Just prior to moving to Dowling Park, Dick and Angie lived in Tallahassee. Since graduating from Aurora College in Illinois, Dick managed a Burger King, played his guitar in restaurants, taught guitar lessons and worked as a music director at two churches. Angie, having graduated with a degree in social work (also from Aurora), held jobs in that eld until Emily, their rst, was born. Around 1980, ACV executive Jim Humbles contacted Dick and asked if he would be interested in performing at some of the residents events. Jim had been a dean at Aurora while Dick and Angie had been students. Not long after Dicks rst visit to ACV, he expressed an in terest in coming to work at the community full time. Knowing the type of man Dick was, Jim did soon call and offer Dick the position of Director of Retirement Living. After prayerfully considering, Dick accepted and the young family moved to Dowling Park. Dicks job as Director of Retirement Living entailed a lot of on-the-job training. He managed the two apart ment buildings and over saw community care for all the residents. For ap proximately 25 years, Dick lled this role. During this time, he also began the Live! at Dowling Park Art ist Series, a program that is nishing its 30th season Couple celebrated for 65 years of ACV employment rfn tbbb tbb rrt this month. For the past 10 years, Dick has been ACVs Di rector and Senior Director of Church and Community Outreach. Angie started working for ACV in 1986 when their second child, Matt, was not quite 2 years old. Selessly willing to help wherever she can, the positions she held were grant writer, social services worker; activities worker; personnel director; nurs ing home administrator in training; nursing home associate administrator; personnel director; assis tant to ACVs psychologist (testing school children); Village Church secretary; administrative assistant to the Chief Program Ofcer and nally ofce manager for Resource Development, from which she retired in August 2017. (Advent Christian Village has) been a great place to serve and raise kids, says Angie. The couple is so glad they decided to move to Dowling Park when they did, and they plan to re main in the off-campus home they built. Emily and her family now live down the street, and Matt and his family recently bought a house in Live Oak. Emilys younger children are attending Wee Care ACVs daycare just like their mother and uncle did when they were their age. Angie now spends most weekdays caring for their youngest grandchild. Dick is still joyfully entertaining both ACVs members, community organizations and prospective members with his guitar playing and vocals and with his knowledge of ACV as he travels locally and across the country sharing ACVs story. Advent Christian Village is grateful for this dedicat ed couple and their many years of service. r frbr DOWLING PARK Celebrating its 30th season with original members Renata Artman Knic on violin, Bruce Uchimura on cello, and Susan Wiersma Uchimura on piano, the Merling Trio has long been recognized as one of todays premier ensembles. The Merling Trio has been hailed as a brilliantly distinguished group en dowed with remarkable gifts of communication, mag nicent precision, and an impeccable blend of sound. The trio made its New York debut in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 1993, and was named a nalist for the Naumburg Foundation Chamber Music Award in 1994. Since then, their dis tinguished career has includ ed performances in 44 states, Canada, Europe and China. Advent Christian Village is excited to nally be able to include the Merling Trio as part of its Live! at Dow ling Park Artist Series.

LIVE OAK The Flor ida Department of Health in Suwannee and Lafayette counties recognizes April 21-28 as National Infant Immunization Week, an annual observance pro moting the benets of immunizations for children from birth to 2 years old. NIIW also celebrates the milestones achieved in con trolling vaccine-preventable diseases among infants worldwide as a result of immunization. Immunizations are one of the most effective ways to protect our infants and young children, Kerry S. Waldron, Administrator and Health Ofcer for the Florida Department of Health in Lafayette and Suwannee counties, said in a release. Parents can greatly enhance the health of their child simply by having the recommended immunizations. NIIW is a call to action for parents, caregivers and health care providers to ensure that all children are protected from birth against 14 serious childhood ill nesses. It is important that parents and health care providers work together to follow the recommended Advisory Committee on Immunizations schedule to protect infants and children by providing immunity early in life, before they encounter potentially life threatening diseases. The department is com mitted to increasing the rate of immunization among Floridas children under 2 years of age. Recently, the department worked with a diverse group of public and private partners to update the State Health Improvement Plan. During the next ve years, the de partment and partners will work to increase access to immunizations for infants and pregnant women and increase access to vac cine-preventable diseases in children and teens. To learn more about the departments immuniza tion-related goals, visit the SHIP page at http://www. oridahealth.gov/aboutthe-department-of-health/ about-us/state-and-com munity-health-assessment/ ship-process/index.html. Vaccines for children (ages 0-18 years of age) are available at no charge on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between the hours of 8-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m., with no appointment necessary, Cindy Morgan, Director of Nursing for the DOH locally, said in the release.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf APRIL 25-26, 2018 This past Sunday was Earth Day. It was the 48th anniversary of the rst Earth Day. Progress has been made in controlling pollution in our country, but there is still so much that needs to be done. Luckily, politicians from both political parties stood to gether this past year to oppose drill ing for oil off the coast of Florida. It is a shame that such action was nec essary. You would think an oil spill like the Deepwater Horizon would end the quest for more oil drilling. One of the big objectives of this years Earth Day is to reduce and eventually stop using single-use plastic products. This will help reduce the already staggering amount of plastic that litters our envi ronment. If current trends continue, by 2050, there will be more plastic than sh in the ocean by weight. I try to use my reusable, insulated cup as much as possible. Any step that reduces the amount of plastic you use every day will help. The problem of plastic in the environment is one that we face here in Suwannee County. It was apparent in the river that I oated down this past Sunday. Had I not picked up the cups I oated past, they would have made their way to the ocean to add to the worlds already stag gering amount of oating plastic. It is a shame that we do not have any plastic recycling in our county. It is estimat ed that 32 percent of plastic that starts in a landll makes it out into the environment. I thought a peaceful oat down the upper Suwannee would be a great way to spend Earth Day. I arrived at the Suwannee Canoe Outpost located at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park shortly before 1 p.m. I passed the long procession of campers who were leaving the park after the Wanee Music Festival. Only one other couple was in the van that took us about four miles upriver from the Music Park. There were long stretches of the trip that I felt as though I had the river to myself. This portion of the Suwannee has tall, limestone cliffs, and big white sandy beaches. The water level was perfect for the trip. There was a small spring that owed into the river and a small waterfall that I stopped and listened to for quite a while. I saw several snakes sunning them selves on the rocks, and even was able to photograph a small gator before he slinked back into the water. There were small blue owers all along the banks of the river. I saw a few people enjoying the river near Suwannee Springs, and one large group of canoes with visitors from Georgia passed me. The oat took me several hours to complete. It was amazing how different the park looked around 6 p.m. Nearly all of the campers were out of the park and the Ferris wheel was packed up and ready to go to its next destination. If you want to explore this part of the Suwan nee you can call the Canoe Outpost at 386-364-4991. Please pick up any plastic you see oating by while you are enjoying our part of the Earth.

Earth Day on the upper Suwannee River Earlier this month, the 2017 Na tional Assessment of Educational Progress, aka The Nations Report Card, was released. Its not a pretty story. Only 37 percent of 12th-grad ers tested procient or better in reading, and only 25 percent did so in math. Among black students, only 17 percent tested procient or better in reading, and just 7 percent reached at least a procient level in math. The atrocious NAEP performance is only a fraction of the bad news. Nationally, our high school graduation rate is higher than 80 percent. That means high school diplomas, which attest that these stu dents can read and compute at a 12th-grade level, are conferred when 63 percent are not procient in reading and 75 percent are not procient in math. For blacks, the news is worse. Roughly 75 percent of black students re ceived high school diplomas attesting that they could read and compute at the 12th-grade level. However, 83 percent could not read at that level, and 93 percent could not do math at that level. Its grossly dishonest for the education establishment and politicians to boast about unprecedent ed graduation rates when the high school diplomas, for the most part, do not represent academic achievement. At best, they certify attendance. Fraudulent high school diplomas arent the worst part of the fraud. Some of the greatest fraud occurs at the higher education levels colleges and universities. Ac cording to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 70 percent of white high school graduates in 2016 enrolled in college, and 58 percent of black high school graduates enrolled in college. Here are my questions to you: If only 37 percent of white high school graduates test as college-ready, how come colleges are admitting 70 percent of them? And if roughly 17 percent of black high school graduates test as college-ready, how come colleges are admitting 58 per cent of them? Its inconceivable that college administrators are un aware that they are admitting students who are ill-pre pared and cannot perform at the college level. Colleges cope with ill-prepared students in several ways. They pro vide remedial courses. One study suggests that more than two-thirds of community college students take at least one remedial course, as do 40 percent of four-year col lege students. College professors dumb down their cours es so that ill-prepared students can get passing grades. Colleges also set up majors with little analytical demands so as to accommodate students with analytical decits. Such majors often include the term studies, such as eth nic studies, cultural studies, gender studies and American studies. The major for the most ill-prepared students, sad ly enough, is education. When students SAT scores are ranked by intended major, education majors place 26th on a list of 38 (https://tinyurl.com/pjmga9y). The bottom line is that colleges are admitting young sters who have not mastered what used to be considered a ninth-grade level of prociency in reading, writing and arithmetic. Very often, when they graduate from college, they still cant master even a 12th-grade level of academ ic prociency. The problem is worse in college sports. During a recent University of North Carolina scandal, a learning specialist hired to help athletes found that during the period from 2004 to 2012, 60 percent of the 183 members of the football and basketball teams read be tween fourthand eighth-grade levels. About 10 percent read below a third-grade level. Keep in mind that all of these athletes both graduated from high school and were admitted to college. How necessary is college anyway? One estimate is that 1 in 3 college graduates have a job historically performed by those with a high school diploma. According to Rich ard Vedder, distinguished emeritus professor of econom ics at Ohio University and the director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, in 2012 there were 115,000 janitors, 16,000 parking lot attendants, 83,000 bartenders and about 35,000 taxi drivers with a bachelors degree. Im not sure about what can be done about education. But the rst step toward any solution is for the American people to be aware of academic fraud at every level of education. Walter E.

The movie theatre is a scary place. A music concert is a scary place. A ball game is a scary place. Church is a scary place. The sad truth of living in modern America is the land of the free and the home of the brave is a scary place requiring more restrictions for even a modicum of safely. Possibly, for the illusion of safety. Last week and this week, the SunLight Project team has reviewed law-enforcement initiatives and security measures to protect people in public places and protect students and staff in schools. The stories look at the concerns of law-enforce ment, school ofcials, residents and students re garding security measures in the SunLight Project regions in Georgia and North Florida. In the school story, authorities detail measures taken to keep our children safe in the classrooms. More school resource ofcers to patrol the hall ways and grounds, fewer points of entry into schools, more defensive measures to halt the possibility of intruders and to keep guns out of schools. Most ofcials interviewed said they oppose teachers being armed. They feel the fewer guns in schools the better. The series does not look at the external forces that have caused so many people to open re on other people in so many venues across the United States. The series is not an examination of the state of the nations mental health programs, or gun control, or violent video games, or other factors at work in one nation under re. And while the efforts of school and law-en forcement ofcials are noble, one must wonder are they enough? Will they be enough?

APRIL 25-26, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7A 73772-1 73771-1 Learning a little history at the cemetery The past is not dead, in fact, it isnt even past. William Faulkner In order to understand the whys of where one lives, one must know a little something about the present, as well as a good bit about the past. A good friend, now departed, once told me, if you want to know about the history of an area, go to some of the oldest cemeteries, the lessons on the tombstones will tell a story for you. She was more right than she knew. Recently, a good friend of mine and I went on one of our drive around tours to some local cemeteries, and it was amazing to him that in this small area in the early part of the 20th century, our small part of the state had two gentlemen who sat in the Governors chair over in Tallahassee. Cary A. Hardee was Governor of the State of Florida from 1921 till 1925. He was born in 1876, and he died in 1957. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Florida Folk Festival Commission. He was a banker, former Speaker of the House of Representatives and has a county named in his honor, Hardee County. He lived most of his life in Live Oak, and his historic home was situated on the site of the present TD Bank on Ohio Avenue. He was prominent in the establishment of Live Oaks First Commercial Bank, and he was beloved by so many in our north Florida. Not too far away in neighboring Colum bia County, Frederick Preston Fred Cone was born in 1871 and died in 1948. At the time of his election in 1937, he was the oldest man ever to be elected Governor of the State of Florida. With $50,000 worth of capital, he es tablished the Columbia County Bank in Lake City in 1912, was a businessman and an attorney. He had close family ties to White Springs, Florida, the Cone family, beginning with William Cone who was born in 1777 and died in 1854, being one of the areas prominent pioneer fami lies. During the time that both Hardee and Cone were governor, the state was con trolled by the Pork Chop Gang. This was a group of legislators from north and west Florida. At that time, each county regard less of geographic size or population as per the Florida constitution had one legislator and one senator, and the Governor could only serve one (four-year) term. With re-apportionment in the 1960s, the law regarding representation changed and north and west Florida lost their longtime con trol of the Florida legislature. Fred P. Cone was tried and acquitted of running a Carpetbagger postmaster out of the White Springs Post Ofce at the age of not quite 17. Supposedly the man had been giving a number of the local citizens a rough time and Cone took matters in his own hands. He helped establish the district ofces of the Florida Department of Transportation, then called The State Road Department, the Veterans Administration Hospital, the Florida Highway Patrol, the paving of U.S. 441 from Lake City to the Georgia line (named the Cone Highway), the establish ment of the Stephen Foster Memorial Com mission in White Springs, and it is reported that a member of the Florida Press Corps said to him When you are not Governor any more, no one will want to do anything for Lake City or your part of Florida. To which, supposedly Cone responded After my term as Governor, I hope they wont have to for a long time. Both of these legislators did much to wards the improvement and modernization of our north Florida. I KNOW that Gov ernor Cone is buried just north of my home north of White Springs in Hamilton Coun ty at Prospect Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery, and I believe Governor Hardee is buried at Oakridge Cemetery, Madison County, in Madison, Florida. Another great Floridian who recently left us and who did not hold public ofce was Mrs. Howard Eumera Harrell Taylor. She was born, March 27, 1919, and she died on April 17, 2018. Talk about a brilliant mind, she had one. Her memory went all the way back to childhood, and she told me any number of times about going to work at the B.W. Helvenston Insurance Company in 1938. She worked for the Clerk of the Courts ofce in Live Oak, and she helped her husband, the late Howard Taylor, op erate Taylors Store near Luraville for a number of years. She had a zest for life and living and she did love north Florida and Suwannee County. I dont write this very often about many individuals, but it was a PRIVILEGE to know her and to call her a dear friend. I was never in her presence that I didnt learn something; even the day before she passed away I visited her at Ha ven Hospice in Lake City, and, though very gravely ill, she was still every inch a lady, a very GREAT lady. To her beloved daughter, Jeanene Taylor Romanchuck, and to all the family, our prayers and deepest heartfelt sympathy. As I close this column this week, I do so with a thankful heart for all my devoted readers, and speaking of reading, our lo cal public libraries have many wonderful books, magazines, movies, and if you want to do something priceless for a child, take time and READ to them, there is no substi tute for it. The late Barbara Bush, rst lady of the nation who recently passed way, was a champion for literacy. There is no substi tute for it. I thank Mrs. Betty Lawrence, our Suwannee River Regional Library Director, and all the staff members at all our public libraries, who do so much to encourage literacy. From the Eight Mile Still on the Wood pecker Route north of White Springs, wish ing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter. Around the Banks DOWLING PARK As the saying goes: If you dont use it, youll lose it. When it comes to senior mobility, this tends to ring especially true. As you age, you might nd certain tasks becoming more dif cult getting in and out of the car, climbing a ight of stairs or vacuuming, for instance. Many seniors begin losing some of their mobility because of chronic conditions like arthritis or osteoporosis, which can make moving without pain problematic. However, the less mo bile someone becomes, the more at risk they are for ill nesses and injuries requir ing hospitalization or even injuries leading to perma nent disability. Increasing ones range of motion will help improve their health and overall quality of life. The good news is its never too late to start im proving ones mobility. There are plenty of safe ex ercises seniors of all ability levels can enjoy regularly, and will start to notice the benets quickly. These benets include increased strength, coordination and balance, all of which are key in fall prevention. Someone may notice a boost in your energy, an improved mood and a slim mer waistline, too. Even if someone has al ready begun to experience a decline in their range of motion, now is always the best time to start improving ones mobility. Here are six tips to get the blood owing: 1. Start moving slow ly. First, visit a physician and discuss any limitations one may be concerned about. After getting the green light to get started, nd some exercises to en joy and start incorporating them into ones routine for at least 10 minutes a day. For example, someone can lift some light weights while sitting in a chair, or take a walk around the block. Increase the length of time one exercises as they gain more mobility, aiming for 30 minutes a day. 2. Focus on improv ing strength and balance. Strong muscles and bones are key to improving bal ance and avoiding a de bilitating fall, so pay extra attention to exercises that strengthen the back, hips and core muscles. 3. Use the proper mo bility aids. Ensure safety and maintain independence better by using mobility de vices that can help one stay moving. Walkers and canes can provide the support one needs to help move about and lessen any fears they may have of falling. 4. Watch what one eats. A healthy diet keeps some one energized throughout the day, and has additional benets like lowering their risk for heart disease, re ducing high blood pressure and cholesterol, and man aging chronic conditions like diabetes. Start tracking what one eats so they can be sure theyre getting the appropriate amount of nu trients and calories. When someone eats better, they feel better! 5. Enjoy a good nights sleep. Without a restful nights sleep, one becomes more prone to accidents and falls. This is because they dont have the energy to pay attention to your sur roundings, or you may feel weak and tired from lack of rest. The best ways to boost senior mobility 6. Dont give up. Re member, doing something is better than doing noth ing! Dont get frustrated; just keep at it! Even 10 minutes a day can help improve senior mobility, so keep working to make exer cise a daily habit. Advent Christian Village specializes in senior health and tness programs that support members minds, bodies and souls. The pro fessionally trained staff personalizes programs with peoples individual needs and goals in mind.

APRIL 25-26, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A State & Region jill.nolin@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. Lee Henderson closes his eyes and pictures Mary Turner holding her swollen belly and breathing heavily as she runs from the lynch mob. Daddys dead, and now theyre com ing for me. How do I save you? Henderson, a Valdosta resident who spent years researching Turners life, said he imagines the 21-year-old woman saying these words desperately to the baby inside her. But she couldnt save the baby. An eight-month pregnant Turner was soon captured and strung up by her ankles near the Lowndes County-Brooks Coun ty line in South Georgia. An enraged mob of white men doused her with gaso line, burned her clothes and cut the baby from her womb. Only a couple cries from the baby were ever heard. Turner was then shot repeatedly. Turners lynching which happened a century ago next month was so bru tal that some details have been omitted here. Back then, word of the savagery spread beyond the South and helped fuel an anti-lynching movement that was be ginning to take hold elsewhere. Even the White House was alerted about the vio lence playing out in Brooks County. But today in South Georgia, where Turner was swept up in a lynching ram page that killed about a dozen people, the story of her death doesnt appear to be so widely known or told. There have been efforts to x that. A group behind the Mary Turner Project pushed for a historical marker to be placed in the remote area near where she died. Mark George, a Valdosta native and a sociology professor who helped start the Mary Turner Project while at Valdosta State University, said one of the goals of the effort was simply to undisappear people. Injustice was done, and that needs to be told, said George, who is white and now teaches in Portland, Ore. If you want to know history, you just cant know the parts that you like. Within a few years, the marker had been riddled with bullets. The group chose not to have the marker replaced. A Disease Now, a new memorial hundreds of miles from where Mary Turner and her baby were killed is intended to ampli fy their story, as well as the stories of thousands of other black Americans who were killed by lynch mobs in the de cades after the Civil War. About 800 six-foot steel monuments hang in the new National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Ala. They are meant to suggest the tragic and unjust end that befell about 4,400 people from 1877 to 1950. The Equal Justice Initiative will open the privately funded, rst-of-its-kind memorial in the United States to the public this Thursday along with an ac companying museum called the Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration. Slavery doesnt end in 1865. It just Memorial focuses on Americas lynching past evolves, Bryan Stevenson, the director of the Montgomery-based nonprot, said on a recent CBS segment. EJI declined a request for an interview. Thousands of lynchings took place mostly in the South. Mississippi, Geor gia and Louisiana had the highest num ber of lynchings, according to an EJI report. Mississippi, Florida, Arkansas and Louisiana had the highest statewide lynching rates. But the group also documented exam ples as far northeast as Orange County, N.Y., and as far west as Kern County, Calif. The massive memorial is designed to represent the scale of the national horror. I dont think we get to pretend that this stuff didnt happen. I dont think you can just play it off. This is like a disease. You have to treat it, Stevenson said during the CBS segment. Each monument represents a county where a documented lynching occurred and is engraved with a list of the dead in that county. Some counties such as Anderson County, Texas, and Brooks County, Ga. will have longer lists in scribed than others. r rfntbnrt ntntrftrtrntrtfr Replicas of the monuments sit near the memorial waiting for the counties they represent to claim and install them back home. Lingering Scars The lynching victims were often ac cused of a crime, but not always. There was 15-year-old Willie James Howard, who was snatched up in Su wannee County, Fla., in 1944 after send ing an admiring note to the daughter of one of his captors. With his hands and feet bound, Howard was forced to jump into a river as his father watched at gun point. And in east Texas, just southeast of Palestine, nearly two dozen black res idents were reportedly gunned down indiscriminately during the 1910 Slo cum Massacre for reasons that remain unclear. Many surviving black residents then ed the area en masse. In Georgia, more than two-thirds of lynching victims were in police custody when a lynch mob seized them, accord ing to Fitzhugh Brundage, a history professor at the University of North Carolina. Lynching is a manifestation, I think, of Americans and overwhelmingly white Americans willingness to bend or outright break the law if the law is in convenient to the exercise of their pow er, Brundage said. Brundage, who wrote Lynching in the New South, which focused on Georgia and Virginia, said the number of lynch ings nationwide could have been as high as 5,000. Yet, he noted that there seems to be little public awareness today of this his tory and its lasting imprint. There is a level of ignorance about something that we should not be igno rant about, Brundage said. Not just because of the tragedy for the people who died at the hands of lynch mobs and who were executed illegally for reasons that were determined by the people who killed them, rather than by any fair sys tem of justice. Aside from that injustice, theres also of course the scar that it left for all those people who participated in the lynchings and all of those people who were intimi dated by them, he said. There has to be a reconciliation Lee Henderson has been haunted by Mary Turners story ever since his col lege professor pulled him aside more than a decade ago and suggested he do an online search for Mary Turner. That conjured up the story of a wom an who was killed for protesting the lynching of her husband, who had been accused of conspiring to murder a local farmer. Mary Turner and her husband both worked for the farmer, Hampton Smith, and a group of workers was said to have plotted the murder in the Turner home. As the story goes, Smith had a reputa tion for beating and abusing his workers so he struggled to nd willing employ ees. He turned to a common tactic at the time, paying an inmates ne and allow ing the debt to be repaid through work. One worker, who had been jailed for gambling, was beaten just days before the murder after he refused to work while sick. That employee later killed Smith, shot his wife and ransacked the home. At the time, there were also accusa tions that Smiths wife was sexually assaulted during the attack, although that claim was later discredited. The farmers pocket watch was later found in Turners possession. The accuracy of these accounts would never be explored through the judicial process. A mob quickly formed, attracting Smiths family members, community leaders and others from the region, and one newspaper account at the time said the mob grew to more than 500 people. The manhunt ended with the lynchings of a dozen or more people during the course of nearly a week. Mary Turner drew the mobs ire when she threatened to take out arrest warrants for the men who killed her husband, who she said knew nothing of the plans to murder Smith. Henderson said he wanted to learn all he could about Turner and how this vio lence affected the community. One day, when Henderson interviewed a 96-year-old woman who grew up in Brooks County, he said she whispered to him as he prepared to leave: Now, we aint going to get in no trouble with these white folks, is we? For her, it was like it happened the day before, the 67-year-old Henderson said. Its still happening. Henderson, who is a Baptist preacher and radio newsman in Valdosta, said he plans to be there when the memorial to Turner and the thousands of other lynch ing victims opens Thursday. There has to be a coming together to acknowledge, Henderson said. There has to be a coming together to say, Yeah, it happened, and were sorry. There has to be a coming together so people can say, Yeah, it happened, but we forgive. Because just like descendants of the mob are still here, the descendants of the people who were lynched theyre still here, too. And the pain lives in ones psyche. How do you get rid of it? he said. There has to be a reconciliation. Jill Nolin covers the Georgia State house for The Valdosta Daily Times, CNHIs newspapers and websites. r trtbnrrftnt rrtr frfnt btrtfrtrbrrrbfn tnfftfrtt ntntrf

However, several resi dents took issue with Bull ards choice since he called him his best friend. The council ultimately agreed with the residents in directing Bullards ongoing search for the lawyer to conduct the investigation. Councilman William Mitchell V asked what kind of lawyer was needed for this investigation. Bullard informed Mitchell it would be a Labor and Employ ment lawyer. Mitchell then motioned for Bullard and the League of Cities to provide a list of possible lawyers at another meeting next week. The need for outside council stems from allega tions City Clerk Jennifer Hightower made at the April 9 meeting. There she said she was threatened April 5 by Williams, who was carrying a gun. She stated at that meeting that Willliams carries a gun in a holster at City Hall. She said that he threat ened her twice the previous week when he raised his voice at her after she re fused to place an item on the agenda. She added that Williams also placed his hand on his gun. Hightower said she reported the incident to Mayor Darnell Lumpkin and led a report with the Hamilton County Sheriffs Ofce. Due to the investigation being active, the HCSO has not provided The Jasper News a copy of the report. Both employees are also required by town ordinance to provide the mayor with an incident report for him to review, so they can at tempt to work through the issues. The board was made aware of the town ordi nance by a citizen who brought the paper to the council to review. At the April 17 meeting, Lumpkin said he had re ceived Hightowers report since the April 9 regular meeting, but not one from Williams. The council reiterated at the April 17 meeting that Hightower and Williams will continue to alternate work days until the inves tigation is complete so that they are not working at City Hall at the same time. Resident Lamar Royals questioned why should the city pay for the town man ager and clerk to receive full-time pay if they are only working part-time. As a citizen of Jasper I feel that we should not be paying full time for two employees who are working half the time, Royals said. They need to sit down and discuss their problems and if that does not work, then dismiss them. Bullard informed Royals that employees have rights under labor laws that pro hibits the city from ring the employees prior to an investigation. Also at the April 9 meet ing, Williams stated that he was currently wearing the gun and has it on him every day. He also stated that he has permission to carry the gun but did not state who pro vided him with permission. According to Florida statutes, even if Williams has a license to carry a concealed weapon, it still may not be carried into a city council meeting.

All Across America, Small Towns are Dying! Or All Across America, Small Towns are Thriving. Whichever one you picked, chances are your choice says as much about you and your attitude as it does about the actual state of Small Town America because both headlines are true. What differentiates the success stories from the sad, decaying failures? A variety of factors enter into the equation but some of the constant qualities that contribute to the success stories are vision, lead ership, cooperation, communication, planning and partnership, all of them prefaced by the word good. Preface the same qualities with bad or poor and youve got the recipe for failure. Where does White Springs, or your small town, t into the picture? In the case of White Springs, Id say that the jurys still out, we could go either way. But, having said that, Ill also say that Im an optimist and I believe that we can thrive, but only if we make good plans and embrace good, common sense principles, and we must take advantage of good opportunities, big and small, as they present themselves. Ive been trav eling a good bit over the past few weeks and my travels conrm something we should already know. Good government, involved citizens, and good small busi nesses working together are essential to growing a small town without ruining it. Here is an opportunity for you. If youre in business or thinking about starting a business in the White Springs area, here is a solid opportunity for you to see how the United States Postal System can contribute to your success.

We were in Ocean Springs, Mississip pi, last weekend, a small coastal town that could have been ruined by the success of the casinos in neighboring Biloxi, or by the 20 hurricanes that have hit it over the years, including the worst of all, Katrina in 2005, yet Ocean Springs survives and thrives! Why? Partly because they never lost sight of who they are and what they have to offer the outside world. Their vision for growth never lost sight of their his tory, tradition, culture, architecture and downtown historic district, all of which are intact, and tourists ock to their shops and restaurants because Ocean Springs has kept its identity without keeping itself a secret. Small businesses thrive and government works hard to keep things in balance so that the town will continue to be a good home for its residents, and attractive to tourists and to small businesses. A TV feature program on the town summed it up by reporting, The local merchants have done a wonderful job of inviting people in. Opening their doors. The citys done a good job of keeping it clean, keeping the streets up, the sidewalks up. And its just a quaint little town. Working together for the good of the community so successfully that its newsworthy! We should be doing more and more of that in White Springs. Its a simple concept. Working for your com munity is a lot like loving your family. Its not always easy, but its the right thing to do. Another place we visited recently, Vilano Beach near St. Augustine, is thriving too and Im sure it is good for a lot of people from a nancial view point, but it is sad to see that growth and progress has severely diminished the authenticity of a lovely place that once qualied as old Florida. Vilano Beach is no longer much different than many other Florida beaches full of high rises and million dollar homes and strip malls. They got growth, but they lost their soul. It was sad to see. Please, dont let that happen to White Springs. Im always glad to hear about goings on in the community and will be glad to share anything appropriate for this column. Email is the best way to con tact me, but any way is welcome. I am thankful that we truly are all connected, and I hope that we can continue to feel proud of who we are and where were headed, and that we all appreciate that White Springs and its surrounding re gion is a very special place, to be hon ored and protected. As always, I look forward to seeing you out and about, enjoying your community and your life in White Springs or wherever you may be. Walter McKenzie 386-303-1394 lifeinwhitesprings@gmail.com Small Town America thriving or dying? 74072-1 74068-1 By Stacy Thompson One of the most bene cial resources available to help the seniors we love to maintain their indepen dence is the Home Health Aide. The ultimate goal of Home Health Care for seniors is to allow them to remain as independent as possible, giving them the freedom of living on their own while minimiz ing the need for full-time care. Home Health Aides can assist with a broad spectrum of tasks. Their dedication and care has an enormous impact on the lives of their patients. Short-term care is de signed to help those re covering from surgery or another serious ailment until they are recovered and able to care for them selves again. For others, long-term assistance is necessary to remain inde pendent. The variety of as sistance offered by Home Health can make all the difference. Bathing commonly be comes more difcult as we grow older. Home Health Aides offer a variety of options to make bathing easier. They can assist with the entire process or they can simply be there to pro vide a sense of security. It can be reassuring to have help getting in or out of the shower, or to simply be nearby to lend a hand if needed. Having a Home Health Aide for 30 minutes or an hour can have a posi tive impact on the persons entire day. Medication manage ment is another benet of Home Health. Trying to remember to take one pill a day can be a chore for most of us. Imagine taking several pills, with different Benets of a home health aide dosages, several times a day. Taking medication in consistently or incorrectly can wreak havoc on health. Thats where Home Health can step in to lend a hand. While it might be as easy as setting up daily medi cation boxes for patients, they can also provide elec tronic medication boxes. These boxes have an alarm that can be programmed to go off at specic times of the day to alert the patient that it is time to take their medication. This can be essential for patients who have memory problems to continue living inde pendently. Companion care is when Home Health Aides are with patients for longer periods of time. They help with everyday tasks that can require an extra pair of hands, such as grocery shopping, housekeeping, and laundry. In addition, companion care aides are able to stay with the pa tient up to 12 hours per day, working on various activities to keep patients happy and healthy. Home Health Aides can work with patients on their so cial skills, play different games designed to give their brains a bit of a workout and be a reassur ing presence in the lives of their patients. Home Health also offers physical therapy, speech therapy, and skilled nurs ing in patients homes. This is extremely bene cial for those with limited mobility, allowing them to remain in their homes while the professionals come to them. The caring individuals who work in Home Health are providing a necessary service, allowing seniors to stay out of full-time care and remain in the comfort of their own homes. Help with the essentials of life has a profound effect on the happiness and indepen dence of patients as well as their families. Perhaps the most important benet of Home Health Aides is the peace of mind families get by knowing their loved one(s) are well taken care of.

APRIL 25-26, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 12A State & Region tom.lynn@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. School can be a scary place. Going to school can feel like playing a game of Russian roulette for some stu dents who think a lot about places simply known as Columbine, Sandy Hook and now Parkland. Since the shooting at Columbine High School nearly 20 years ago, school shoot ings have become a part of everyday life. The attacks are random and can happen anytime, anywhere and seemingly regard less of any school precautions. For Raquel Goddard and Nyanda Walker-Potts, both 16-year-old juniors at Valdosta (Ga.) High School, the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was a turning point. If it can happen there, at an elemen tary school, it sent the message that no one is safe, Walker-Potts said. You can never tell when the next shooting is going to be or where. Walker-Potts and Raven Ford, also a 16-year-old Valdosta High School junior, organized a school walkout in March following the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Florida. They participated with students across the nation in similar walkouts to pressure lawmakers and school ofcials to do more about the growing number of school shootings. I gured that if I didnt do something then who would? Walker-Potts said. I think it was successful. Even though we had some push back from some admin istrators, we showed that we couldnt be stopped. Goddard said the Parkland shooting was a tipping point in getting students in volved in the public discussion. Shooting survivor Emma Gonzlez is an inspiration for both VHS international baccalaureate students. They showed that we had a voice, Goddard said. They made it easier for us to speak out, and that if were old enough to be shot at, were old enough to talk about being shot at. Schools across the SunLight Projects coverage area, which includes Live Oak and Mayo, Fla, and Valdosta, Moultrie, Tifton, Thomasville, Milledgeville and Dalton, Ga., have all taken precautions to keep students safe while in school and at school events. But, outside of school, Goddard and Walker-Potts havent seen much change since Sandy Hook or Parkland and still dont feel all that safe in the classroom. In the end, the problem isnt isolated to schools. Its bigger than that. Reections of Violence Lowndes County (Ga.) Schools Super intendent Wes Taylor said public school systems are a microcosm of society, and school shootings are a part of a larger problem facing the nation. The tragic school shootings that have occurred are just a reection of the violence that is happening in our soci ety, whether thats in a school, a movie theater, a mall, a church or any public space, Taylor said. He said the Lowndes County School System has evolved and is continuing to evolve with the changes in society. Through the last couple of years, Lowndes County has added at least one school resource ofcer to every school, with at least three at Lowndes High School. Every ofcer comes through the Lowndes County Sheriffs Ofce and is trained, uniformed and certied, Taylor said. Each LCSO ofcer in the school comes with a patrol car parked outside of the building. Patrol cars act as a deterrent, he said. That is very purposeful, Taylor said. We want any cowardly perpetrator out there, who is looking for a soft target where nobody else is armed, to know that there is a highly trained, armed ofcer inside the school with the mission of neu tralizing any threat. Taylor said there are two separate missions when it comes to protecting students. There is the SROs mission and the teachers mission. The SRO looks for the threat to neu tralize it, while teachers ensure their stu dents are accounted for and safe. He said it is important not to mix those missions. Its two totally different missions, Taylor said. We are going to get the students to a safe place, and the resource ofcer is going to go to the threat. Valdosta City Schools Superintendent Dr. Todd Cason said the city schools are safe because each school has a certied police ofcer on staff. Resource ofcers are staffed at each front ofce where peo ple must be buzzed into the building. His or her job is to keep the school safe by monitoring the halls, greeting parents and building relationships with our students, Cason said. He said ofcers are at all school events such as football games and other activi ties. School resource ofcers also travel with sports teams. School Resource Ofcers SROs have become as common a school feature as re alarms. Most school systems either have at least one SRO at every school or are in the process of adding an SRO at every school. Suwannee County (Fla.) Schools Su perintendent Ted Roush said most of his schools have had resource ofcers for a while. Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John said the department is hiring three new SROs for the next school year, giving the school system nine ofcers in eight schools. Each school, including RIVEROAK Technical College, will have an ofcer present every day. In the past, RIV EROAK has not had an SRO. An additional SRO will allow Sgt. Lee Willis, currently Suwannee Middle Schools SRO, to oversee the other of cers and ll in where needed. Willis said ofcers will participate in training this summer on various topics in cluding new laws and changes regarding juveniles. In addition to the summer training, ofcers participate in different training exercises every month on Professional Development Day. Willis said ofcers are trained for sin gle-ofcer response, considering the SRO will be the rst to respond in case of an active shooter. The Baldwin County (Ga.) School Dis trict has a law-enforcement presence at every level. Baldwin County Schools Superinten dent Dr. Noris Price presented a budget to the school board this month that calls for adding a resource ofcer for Oak Hill Middle next school year. All of our school resource ofcers are armed, trained and sworn law-enforce ment ofcers from the Baldwin County Sheriffs Department, Price said. Their training as an armed school resource of cer comes from their training and experi ence through their respective police acad emies and whatever additional continual training/education that our local sheriffs agency requires. Although training is important, Thomas County (Ga.) Sheriffs Ofce Cpl. Darrell Colvin said making sure students feel safe around him and comfortable alerting him to any possible dangerous situations at school is just as important. I try to build a great rapport with the students, Colvin said. Colvin has been a school resource of cer for more than three years and walks six to seven miles daily in his rounds at the school to ensure safety. Dalton (Ga.) Police Department Ofcer Bart Chandler has been the SRO at Dal ton High School for four years. He said there is no such thing as a typical day. You can have a day when there are no reports, and (other days) I can be behind three or four reports, he said. Most of the problems we deal with are teenagers trying to gure out life and helping them make good decisions. Chandler said not everything is a crim inal matter and not everything needs to be treated as a criminal matter. Part of the SRO selection process is making sure ofcers understand that, he said. A lot of training for SROs is based on the triad approach. First, SROs are law-enforcement of cers. Second, they are counselors. You help these kids through life, Chandler said. To do that, you need to build relations. You need to know the stu dents, know the teachers, know the staff. You can help them avoid the bad choices in life. You can also help them when they have made bad choices. He said the third level is SROs are school administrators, enforcing the school code of conduct. If he sees something that is a violation of school rules, but not law-enforcement related, he brings it to the attention of school ofcials. If theres nothing happening that im mediately requires his attention, Chandler keeps moving. Im walking the halls. Im mixing with the kids. The students know if they need me to go to the front ofce (for them to call him) because Im rarely in my ofce unless I have paperwork that needs to be done, he said. When I am in my ofce, I have the school security cameras pulled up on my computer, so I can monitor things. Chandler said he walks anywhere from four to 12 miles a day while on duty at the school. He said he moves through the school halls tactically, looking into the class rooms to see how things are going, look ing for cover points, and when there are people moving into and out of the build ing, he picks somewhere to watch. Im watching their faces, watching their behavior, he said. His goal is to make sure school staff shares a similar mindset, he said. They have a thousand different things they have to deal with everyday, and he said he doesnt want teachers, students, staff or visitors to be scared. However, he does want them to be thinking. Thats why everything went so smoothly during the recent event we had at the high school, Chandler said. They didnt go perfectly. They never will. But the question of What do I do? wasnt there. It had already been answered. Dalton armed teacher In February, Dalton was the focus of national attention, when Dalton High School teacher Randal Davidson brought a pistol to school and shot a bullet through the window of his classroom, ac cording to law-enforcement reports. No one was hurt and Davidson was the only person in the classroom but the inci dent happened at the height of the debate to arm teachers. When the shot went off, Pat Holloway, director of communications for Dalton Public Schools, said Principal Steve Bar too called an active shooter threat lock down for the high school. So, yes, we have used that code, Holloway said. To my knowledge, the incident at Dalton High was the one and only time weve ever used the code active shooter lockdown. Several weeks later, school ofcials recommended a number of security en hancements at schools. The school board is scheduled to vote on hiring four additional security resource ofcers, the system currently has three; adding intruder door locks to all class room doors; upgrading the public address systems to a digital system; replacing existing analog cameras with digital sys tems, and adding card-access readers to rrfntbrb rfnrtbtttrftb brttfrrt ftrtbrbbbrb brffr rttrrbnbrrtbtbttrrtrr rbbbtrftb SEE BACKPACKS, PAGE 13A

Guns in Schools The City of Milledgeville, Ga., has had the opposite problem from Dalton. Instead of a teacher bringing a gun to school, three students in three Baldwin County School District school buildings each brought guns to school. A 12-year-old fth-grader at Midway Hills Academy was taken into custody by Baldwin County sheriffs deputies after Principal Antonio Ingram received infor mation the student had a rearm. The weapon was unloaded inside the students backpack without ammunition or a magazine. Another incident occurred at Lakeview Academy in November. An 8-year-old third-grader had a gun that was discov ered when it went off inside the backpack while inside a classroom. No one was injured in the incident. The most recent instance happened in mid-January when a seventh-grader brought a handgun to Oak Hill Middle School. The handgun and the student were re moved from the building without incident after a school administrator received an anonymous tip from a student who had seen a fellow student in possession of a rearm. The gun was unloaded. Following the rst incident, school security quickly became a topic of discus sion on school board agendas. Baldwin County school ofcials made several changes. Elementary school students must use clear or mesh backpacks. The clear or mesh rule was already in place at the mid dle and high school levels. Community forums allowed parents and community members a say, and talks quickly turned toward implementing met al detectors. Parents were largely in favor of adding metal detectors, especially at the front of ces for people visiting the building. Starting in February, metal detectors were installed at both Oak Hill Middle and Baldwin High School. Students and visitors must walk through them each day. School ofcials have been considering installing metal detectors at the elementa ry schools, but no steps have been taken. Arming Teachers Dr. Gloria Wicker, board of education chairwoman in Baldwin County, said she vehemently opposes arming teachers. Arming teachers has not been men tioned at any school board meeting since the recent incidents. Wicker said it hasnt been discussed outside of open meetings either. I am 100 percent not in favor of arm ing teachers, she said. Teachers have enough to deal with rather than having to deal with pulling out a gun. I am denite ly opposed to teachers being armed. We have not given that any thought. The Valdosta superintendent said he is not a proponent of arming teachers. It comes down to training, Cason said. Being able to shoot a gun is one thing, but being trained to handle a weapon during a tense situation where children are in volved is completely different, he said. If you are going to be armed, then you need to have extensive, extensive training in that kind of environment, Cason said. We as educators have not been trained to do that. Weve been trained to educate. Thats our role. The school spends money to have school resource ofcers on campus, so there is a highly trained individual at the school, but that person is not a teacher. Lowndes Superintendent Wes Taylor said he is against arming teachers. The school staff are not trained, he said. The deputies and SROs have hours and hours of training and how to react in one of those high-pressure situations. Our school people are going to take care of the children. One concern is if there is an incident and law-enforcement ofcers enter a school, they wont be able to distinguish the bad guy with a gun from a teacher with a gun, Taylor said. The SROs are easily identiable due to their deputys uniform. Also, the fewer guns involved in a dan gerous situation makes law enforcements job easier, he said. Taylor said students are more at risk while driving a car than getting shot at school, but school shootings are in the news. I think we have a very good plan in place if there is a situation, but I think there are better places to put our resourc es, Taylor said. But school shootings are a hot topic. Ive heard everything from putting someone at every exterior door with a shotgun in their lap. I mean, this isnt the Wild, Wild West. We have to be realistic. When asked if teachers should be armed, Kay Streets, Thomas County Board of Education member, said the school system is fortunate to have law enforcement and government willing to step up and do what is necessary to staff each campus with more trained ofcers. In an ideal society, arming school staff could be an option, but then, in an ideal society, you wouldnt need to, Streets said. Thomasville (Ga.) City Schools board member Kejar Butler said she does not believe teachers should be armed. I denitely think we need to address school-safety issues, said Butler, board vice chairperson. While school safety concerns should be addressed for students and teachers, But ler said the prospect of arming teachers should not be explored. Superintendent Patrick Atwater said teachers will not carry rearms in Tift County, Ga. Its been a law in Georgia (that teach ers can carry rearms) since long before this most resent incident, he said. Last check of 180 school districts and 159 counties, zero had taken advantage of (the law). Im adamantly opposed to staff members being armed unless that staff member is a certied law-enforcement ofcer. rfntbtnt ttf rrffnf tbnnnnbnnntnt nnttnntnnn tttf Goddard and Walker-Potts, the VHS students, agreed with school ofcials on arming teachers. They said there are some teachers who would make them feel less safe by being armed. Also, the VHS students said they believe no matter how many armed pro fessionals roam the halls, no matter how strong the locks on the doors or how many drills, feeling safe at school is more than just school security. I doesnt seem like it makes a differ ence. Parkland had three security guards on campus that day and they had active shooter drills, Goddard said. The shooter had a gun powerful enough to shoot through the wall, Walk er-Potts said. I think there has to be more done. Design with safety in mind Modern schools are designed differ ently than they were a few decades ago, said Doug Howell, Colquitt County (Ga.) Schools superintendent. In the old days, he said, the school en trance was meant to be welcoming to stu dents and parents coming inside. Now, it is a barrier to prevent some of the outside world from spilling in. While it has always been necessary to sign in, city and county school entrances across the nation are required to have secure doors and visitors must be buzzed into the interior. Schools have traditionally been de signed, like churches, to invite people in, Howell said. As we move forward, people have to take a look at that. School safety was not something 30 years ago (that) you really thought about. Obvious ly, we live in a different world today. ftnrffnf fntnnnnt tf Shootings at schools have become numbingly ubiquitous across the nation. Whether its an elementary school such as Sandy Hook, a high school such as Stoneman Douglas or a college such as Virginia Tech, it seems like it can happen anywhere, and so schools are being re quired to take precautions they never had to before. Across the SunLight Projects coverage area, school ofcials reassured parents and students they take the dangers and possible risks seriously. When it comes to planning a new school or renovating an existing one, safety features are front and center. Howell said before school shootings were in the news every month, thinking about school safety meant tornado drills and re drills and taking care of a student who scraped a knee on the playground. The re and tornado drills are still re quired, but a new type of drill has been added to the list. In Colquitt County and many other school systems, police have been holding active-shooter drills on school campuses. In the last week of March, while students were on spring break, Colquitt County law-enforcement agencies went through instruction and practice scenarios at Colquitt County High during a 16-hour course. More drills are planned at the county middle school and junior high. The drills give law enforcement a chance to familiarize ofcers with the lay out of school buildings in case there is an emergency, Moultrie (Ga.) Police Depart ment Sgt. Michael Cox said. All Valdosta City Schools will receive active-shooter training drills beginning next year, Cason said. The schools are partnering with Valdosta Police Depart ment and are currently in the planning stages. There is a lot that goes into these drills and we want to do them right, Cason said. We are working with the police chief to identify hot spots, so to speak, that we can address. We will, of course, be educating our teachers about what to do in case a situation happens. In the drill, a person will come into the school with a fake gun. Teachers will use a coding system to alert the rest of the school to the situation. The code will announce a hard lock down, Cason said. What that means is every student should be out of the halls and in a locked room away from the door. Each school has a Georgia Emergency Management Agency certied safety plan that addresses natural disasters, hazardous materials, transportation concerns, weap ons and potential terrorist activities. Cason said they are condent of the plans they have in place. Locking It Down Lowndes County School System has similar procedures, Taylor said. He said each school has an emergency plan that covers a multitude of scenarios. Taylor mentioned a recent event where law enforcement was looking for a sus pect in the area of a school. The school went into lockdown until it received the green light from ofcials that everything was safe. Just recently, the Lowndes County Board of Education asked for every school to do at least one lockdown drill a year, and next year, school ofcials will ask them to do two a year. We rehearse for situations just like that, Taylor said. Our thinking there is that the students take their cues from the teachers, so we want the adults to become accustomed to this. Youve got to practice it until it is second nature, and you dont have to think. You just act. Kuldip Delada, an 11th grader at Thom as County Central High School, said teachers instruct students about what to do in the event of danger. We have an ofcer on-site, too. Thats a plus, Delada said. Noting security cameras throughout the school and campus, Delada said he con siders TCCHS one of the safest schools in the area. Most lockdowns are not for active shooters, but for more banal things such as weather warnings, law enforcement do ing something in the area, or in Daltons Beaverdale Elementary Schools case, the time a bear was spotted in the vicinity. A few years ago, Beaverdale went into a lockdown due to a bear in the area, said Eric Beavers, Whiteld County Schools communications specialist. We kept children inside, away from the bear. But the bear was never going to get into the school and hurt anyone, he said. Every Dalton school has two lockdown drills a year, in case of situations such as a roaming bear. Dalton schools also have re and tornado drills. Beavers said the school system hasnt had a full lockdown, SEE SAFE, PAGE 14A

APRIL 25-26, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 14A State & Region Continued From Page 13A Backpacks or what school ofcials call a secure lockdown, in the last two years. Perimeter lockdowns dont change any thing thats happening inside the building. I dont think we ever have had one, he said. We have had medical lock downs. Thats when a student or staff member has a seizure or some kind of medical situation. And we do lockdowns then, not because of any threat but so emergency responders can get in and out easily. A lockdown was initiated in the Thom asville City School System because of a nearby robbery. The lockdown was ac tually cancelled before it was announced because law enforcement quickly appre hended the suspect. Lockdowns take place when there is a threat to a school, real or perceived, internal or external, and when there is a dangerous situation near a school. The Thomasville City School System employs adequate law enforcement from Thomasville Police Department and the Thomas County Sheriffs Ofce, accord ing to school ofcials. Additional security is employed for high-prole sports events. The system is in the planning phase working toward active shooter/intrud er drills with Emergency Services and Homeland Security. Thomas County Central High School Principal Trista Jones said the school has never conducted an active shooter drill, but law-enforcement agencies have had the drills at the school for training pur poses. In Lafayette County, Fla., there are four active-shooter drills during the school year, two each semester. Superintendent Robby Edwards said a school lockdown can be triggered by something as simple as someone being on campus without a visitors badge. If we receive information from law en forcement of an incident in our area, this could also be a reason to lockdown, Ed wards said. All employees have access to an app for their phone which can be used to initiate a lock-down in the event of an active shooter. We have only had four or ve school lockdowns in the last 10 years due to someone being on campus without a vis itors badge, Edwards said. Most of the time it has been a contractor working on campus and other were not aware they were supposed to be there. Edwards said the number of drills will increase due to the recent passing of Flor ida Senate Bill 7026, the rst gun control legislation enacted in the state after the Parkland school massacre. According to the Baldwin County School District, its schools organize monthly emergency preparedness drills to ensure the students and staff are as prepared as they can be should the worst happen. Emergency-preparedness drills are done monthly, and one soft lockdown has been done this school year. There has been one instance of schools going into a soft lockdown while local law enforcement searched the area for a criminal suspect in a matter unrelated to the schools. Students were not allowed outside of the building, but normal opera tions within the school were not affected. Security Features School drills arent the only thing that has become more serious with the recent wave a shootings. School security features have also improved. Rusty Lount, director of operations at Dalton Public Schools, started in October 2012. The next year, he began the process of adding security entrances at all the schools. The entrances create a secure vestibule. Any visitor must identity himself to be buzzed into the building. In 2014, schools began installing emergency security de vice systems, which work with the 911 call center. Lount said the school system treats the Dalton High, Morris Innovative High School, the middle school and elementary schools the same in terms of security sys tems. Any visitor must be buzzed into all of them. We have on staff a ve-member se curity team that sweeps all the schools (at the end of the day or after events) to make sure everything is secure, that all the doors are locked, Lount said. If an event is going on, staff members are present to make sure that the building is secure, that no one is in areas of the building they shouldnt be. Atwater said Tift County schools began installing heightened security features to restrict access to the schools about 15 years ago. Currently, all schools have restricted access. Visitors have to enter through the front ofce and must sign in to gain access to the building. Any exterior doors are locked and if any of the exterior doors are opened, each school principal receives an alert either via text message or email. Employees access the building through a keycard system, and the keycards can be disabled individually in the event of loss or theft. There are security cameras throughout each school and on school buses. Atwater said the Tift school system is in talks to install more security in the form of a glass partition that will keep the front ofce secure. The incident down in Parkland, Fla., was kind of the straw that broke the cam els back, Atwater said. Anytime theres a tragedy like that everyone comes up with a rash of ideas. Depending upon the experts you ask on how to address an ac tive shooter, you get a different response. ... Several of our principals have asked that we revise our active shooter proto cols. We want one cohesive plan for all schools. Safety of students and staff is a priority for the Suwannee County School District. Following the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., Roush, the superinte dent, reached out to St. John, the sheriff, and Live Oak Police Chief Buddy Wil liams about ideas on improving school safety. Williams said he has been working with St. John and Roush to establish a new game plan and new solutions to some problems. There is a great line of communica tion, Williams said. The school district had been working on securing the school entrances for a while, which will allow there to be someone controlling who enters the school from the front. Suwannee Middle School and Branford High School will have upgrades complet ed this summer. St. John said the sheriffs ofce and po lice department were given key cards for the schools. This allows the deputies to access the school quickly if there is an incident, St. John said. Protecting students and staff requires communication, Colquitt County Superin tendent Howell said. Near the beginning of each monthly meeting with principals and other key staff he always says a few words about safety. He also frequently talks with Sher iff Rod Howell and Moultrie Police Chief Sean Ladson. Along with law enforcement, the school has pushed the message of: See some thing? Say something! This is to remind students to pass along any concerns they have about a safety issue. Cards were passed out with that message and quick response codes to an internet site where students can send a message. School ofcials and school resource ofcers agree that making students feel comfortable sharing information and re porting anything out of the ordinary is the most important tool in keeping the school safe.

By Mass Communica tion Specialist 1st Class Robert Zahn Navy Ofce of Com munity Outreach Public Affairs YOKOSUKA, Japan A Lake City native and 2015 Columbia High School graduate is serving in the U.S. Navy for ward-deployed aboard the guided missile destroyer, USS Shiloh. Petty Ofcer 3rd Class Aaron Geisler is a re controlman aboard the Ar leigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer oper ating out of Yokosuka, Japan. The ship routinely deploys to protect allianc es, enhance partnerships, and be ready to respond if a natural disaster occurs in the region. A Navy re controlman is responsible for operat ing and maintaining com bat and weapons direction systems, surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missile systems and gun re con trol systems. They also provide system employ ment recommendations and performing mainte nance on digital computer equipment systems. Geisler is proud to serve in the Pacic and fondly recalls memories of Lake City. I learned a lot from my scoutmaster. I admired his leadership ability which I strive to implement in in my own life, said Geis ler. Hes the type of per son you will actually sit down and listen to. Moments like that makes it worth serving around the world ready at all times to defend Amer icas interests. With more than 50 percent of the worlds shipping tonnage and a third of the worlds crude oil passing through the region, the United States has historic and enduring interests in this part of the world. The Navys presence in Yo kosuka is part of that long-standing commit ment, explained Navy ofcials. Its a cool opportu nity to experience other cultures and to know that youre a part of an im portant organization, said Geisler. Geisler is also proud of the type of work he does on the ship. He knows that what he does is rec ognized and important to the mission. Destroyers are warships that provide multi-mission offensive and defensive capabilities. They are 510 feet long and armed with tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles, Standard Missile-3 and newer vari ants of the SM missile family, advanced gun systems and close-in gun systems. Destroyers are deployed globally and can operate independently or as part of carrier strike groups, surface action groups, or amphibious readiness groups. Their presence helps the Navy control the sea. Sea con trol is the precondition for everything else the Navy does. It cannot project power, secure the com mons, deter aggression, or assure allies without the ability to control the seas when and where desired. USS Shiloh has anti-air craft capability armed with long range missiles intended for air defense to counter the threat to friendly forces posed by manned aircraft, anti-ship, cruise and tactical ballistic Lake City native serves with the U.S. Navy half a world away missiles. As a member of one of the U.S. Navys most re lied-upon assets, Geisler and other sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last beyond their lifetimes providing the Navy the nation needs. The Navy has made me grow into an adult and has offered me a lot of opportunities to ad vance in my own career, said Geisler. This is the rst time Ive experi enced being in another country and being around a diverse group of peo ple.

According to Sheriff Bobby Schultz, Sgt. Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey had stopped to eat at the Ace China restaurant around 3 p.m. Thurs day when the suspect ambushed the ofcers and shot them from inside the business. There was no crime in progress, no disturbance, the GCSO wrote on its Facebook page. The shooter, who was found deceased from what appears to be a self-inicted gunshot wound inside his car parked outside the restaurant, was identied as John Hubert Highnote, a 59-year-old from Bell. My wife, Ann, and I are heartbroken by the loss of two law enforcement of cers in Trenton, Gov. Rick Scott said in a released statement. It is true evil for anyone to hurt a law enforcement ofcer, and in Florida, we have zero tol erance for violence, especially against the police. Tonight, I ask every Floridian to honor these law enforcement ofcers, their brothers and sisters in uniform and their families. May God bless those who work to keep our communities safe. No further information has been released about the shoot er. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is conduct ing the active investigation into the incident. My thoughts, prayers and condolences are with the families, friends and colleagues of the two @GCSOFlorida deputies (HEROES) who lost their lives in the line of duty today, President Donald Trump said in a tweet. Ramirez, 29, was married and had two young children. He had served both the Williston Police Department and the Levy County Sheriffs Ofce before joining the GCSO in 2016. He had seven years of law enforcement experience. Lindsey, 25, had served for more than three years with the GCSO. A public viewing was held Tuesday morning at Bell Middle/High School with graveside honors held Tuesday afternoon in Bronson. Sheriffs from the area as well as state ofcials are sup porting the GCSO with patrols, investigative assistance and other needs. Among those providing assistance are the Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce and the Lafayette County Sheriffs Ofce. A benet account for both of the slain ofcers has been set up at Drummond Community Bank in Chieand.

When consumed in coee, caeine may help prevent certain diseases. Caeine, which is a mild stimulant by nature, has been linked to lower risks of Alzheimers disease. e NIH also says caeine may lower a persons risk of developing Parkinsons disease and other dementias, while also boosting concentration and memory. e biologically active compounds in coee also can help prevent diseases like stroke and certain cancers. e research study, Adenosine, Adenosine Receptors and the Actions of Caeine, rst published in February 1995, states that caeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter called adenosine. When this occurs, the amount of other neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine and dopamine, can increase. is can improve the ring of neurons, leading to improvements in mood, memory, energy, and general cognitive function. For individuals looking to shed a little extra weight, caeine may help there, too. Several studies show that caeine can boost metabolic rate by three to 11 percent, according to Healthline. Coee, which boasts the vitamins B2, B5, B3, manganese, and potassium, delivers caeine and can be part of a nutritious diet and successful weight-management regimen. People prone to headaches and recurrent pain may nd caeine can help them manage those symptoms. Caeine is one of the main ingredients in some pain relievers. e University of Georgia also has found that a moderate dose of caeine (roughly that found in two cups of coee) can reduce post-workout pain by up to 48 percent. Whats more, e Journal of the American Medical Association notes that, when caeine is combined with other pain relievers, only 40 percent of the other drug was needed to provide the same level of ecacy. Coee and caeine provide various health benets and can be benecial when consumed in moderation. Anyone who wants to alter their caeine consumption should do so gradually to see how their body reacts to the changes.

Taylor has the bigger arm, but some accuracy problems opened the door for Moore to get his chance. Moore impressed as a freshman, especially with his running ability. After Moore suffered injuries late in the season, Taylor was back in the starting lineup where he regained his form. It will be an interesting two-quarterback race this spring and summer to see who gets the upper hand heading into the season. Hamilton County Can new head coach Ric Whittington get the Trojans back on track? It was just four years ago that the Trojans made it all the way to the state title game. Since then, theyve gone a combined 9-21 and made the playoffs just once. Whittington, a defensive coordinator the past five sea sons, will try and turn around the program in his first head coaching job. Lafayette Who steps on defense, and up front for the Hornets? The Hornets bring back important pieces in all-state quarterback Jaxson Beach and all-state receiver Ben Massey. But theyll need to replace a lot of of last years defense, including leading tackler Kendall Calhoun. LHS will also have a new-look offen sive and defensive line after losing a huge senior class. Branford Are the Buccaneers for real? Branford took a big step for ward last year with a 5-5 record. Tim Clark, now in his second year as BHS head coach, spoke about trying to build a playoff program at Branford.

By Kyla Brewer TV Media Detectives are a dime a dozen in prime time, but one crime-solving sleuth is worth his weight in gold. Sir Arthur Conan Doyles iconic Sherlock Holmes has been reimagined for a new generation of fans and hes Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, 1996) reprises his role as a modern-day Sherlock in the sixth-season premiere of Elementary, airing Monday, April 30, on CBS. Its been a longer-than-usual wait for fans of the series, which co-stars Lucy Liu (Ally McBeal) as Sherlocks partner, Dr. Joan Watson. Elementary was noticeably absent from the CBS fall schedule, and it wasnt until January, when the season premiere was sigh of relief. Few details have been announced for the new season, but at the summer CBS press tour, creator and executive producer Robert Doherty hinted that the upcoming season may feature the return of someone from Sherlocks past. With respect to Sherlock, were working hard to see could be Moriarty, played by Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones), but so far the shows cast and crew have remained mum on the subject. As for now, fans can be assured that both Miller and Liu will return to their roles as Sherlock and his sidekick, Watson, who was hired as Holmes sober companion after the brilliant Scotland Yard consultants stint in rehab. They may be back, but itll be anything but smooth sailing for prime times dynamic duo. At the end of last season, Watson put everything on the line and made a proverbial deal with the devil when she approached nefarious thug Julio Halcon Zelaya (Jon Huertas, This Is Us) to help her bring a killer to justice. While she seems to believe her debt to the gangster has been repaid, it may not be that simple. Halcon may not see it the way Joan sees it, Doherty teased in a June interview with Entertainment Weekly. He may think she owes him a favor, not the other way around. Gang leaders are funny that way. While Halcon may cause some trouble for Watson, he may not be the only character to shake things up this season. In July, it was announced that Desmond Harrington (Dexter) would join the cast as Michael, a fellow recovering addict who offers support to Sherlock in his time of need. Fans may remember that the sleuth has been experiencing memory lapses and hallucinations involving a mysterious woman, and his health problems have put a strain on his relationship with Watson because he doesnt want to burden her. As a result, hes forced to look elsewhere for support. Michael claims to want to help Sherlock because he was inspired to get sober thanks to something Sherlock said to him when they met long ago. However, rumors abound that Michael may have ulterior motives for approaching the police consultant. The season 6 cast also includes series regular Aidan Quinn (Legends of the Fall, 1994) as Capt. Thomas Gregson of the NYPD, who often pulls in Holmes and Watson as consultants to crack tough cases. One of Gregsons colleagues at the 11th Precinct is Det. Marcus Bell (Jon Michael Hill, Detroit 1-8-7), whos frequently paired with Holmes and learns a great deal from him. Unfortunately, Holmes may have to take some time off from consulting to focus on his health this season. At the end of season 5, he underwent a brain scan to investigate the cause of his neurological issues, and the test revealed that he may have a brain tumor. His health troubles are just the latest in a long list of challenges faced by the famed detective. Over the course of formidable foes, not the least of which are his addictions. Millers portrayal of the iconic character has earned him high praise from critics, as well as a Satellite Award nomination in 2012. Liu has also been honored with a number of accolades for her work on the series, including three Peoples Choice Award nominations and a 2013 Teen Choice Award win. Elementary was nominated for a 2012 Peoples Choice Award in the Favorite New TV Drama category, and has since snagged two Emmy nods, multiple Prism Award nominations and much more. The shows success is particularly sweet because it was the subject of scrutiny from fans of the BBCs Sherlock, which was also a contemporary take on the classic character, played in that series by Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, 2016). are distinct, as Elementary has proven to be a hit, despite a dip in the ratings for season 5. This may be why things looked a tad grim for season 6 of the CBS series, as the network initially ordered only 13 episodes. As luck would have it, CBS extended the episode order, bringing the season 6 grand total to 21 episodes of the mystery-drama.

The FFS, a division of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, plans to reopen the application process for non-industrial, private forest landowners to run in May and June. The southern pine beetle is one of the most econom ically devastating forest pests of the southeast, with periodic outbreaks leading to deaths of millions of pine trees. In 2016, 222 SPB infestations were reported in Florida, killing trees on more than 1,100 acres. Those numbers are small compared to the last major outbreaks that occurred in Florida from 1999 to 2002, which resulted in an esti mated $59 million in timber losses. Recent aerial surveys of Hamilton and Suwannee counties indicate an increase in pine beetle activity, ac cording to Doc Bloodworth with the Florida Forest Ser vices Suwannee Forestry Center. The program, supported through a grant by the Unit ed States Forest Service, provides incentive payments for landowners who conduct a rst pulpwood thinning and offers partial cost reim bursement for activities such as prescribed burning, me chanical underbrush treat ments, and the planting of longleaf or slash pine rather than the loblolly pine, the beetles preferred species. Since it was rst offered in 2005, the program has supported these practices on more than 167,000 acres and helped thousands of landowners. To apply to the program, landowners should obtain documents from a Florida Forest Service County For ester ofce. Paul Williams, Suwannee County Forester, at 386-364-5314, and Greg Staten, Hamilton County Forester, at 386-792-1269, are available to provide added information and as sistance. The Florida Forest Ser vice manages more than 1 million acres of public forest land while protecting homes, forestland and natu ral resources from the dev astating effects of wildre on more than 26 million acres.

Pray for help in overcoming tragedy Heart Matters For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV WEEKLY BIBLE VERSE Not here!! Not Trenton. Not Gilchrist County. Not our Tri-County area! Our en tire community is affected by the tragedy this week and our hearts are broken for the Ramirez and Lindsey families. I was out of town when we heard the news, so like many, I watched the details unfold online and heard from friends and family. My husband and I prayed for the families involved, and gave thanks for Sheriff Schul tz, Chief Rexroat, Chief Campbell and so many others who provided sound leadership throughout this tragedy. The strength and re solve they portrayed while dealing with their own grief was incredible, and we cant thank them enough for helping us through those rst few days. Our First Responders are brave men and women who put on the uniform and knowingly run into danger. They defend our community willingly and sacricially and will continue with every shift to honor the memories of Sergeant Ramirez and Deputy Lindsey. So, as a community what is our part? Lets honor these two heroes and all who protect and serve. We can begin with prayer. Pray for the Ramirez and Lindsey families. Help where you can. They will need our love and support for many days to come. Next, pray for safety of all our rst responders, and for the strength and courage to do their jobs well. Pray for their families, who will nd it even more difcult to let them walk out the door and into service. Also, give random, intentional acts of kindness to our men and women in uniform: say thank you, give a smile and a handshake, pay for their breakfast or lunch, and show your appreciation. Lets overwhelm our rst responders with our gratitude for their service and be a part of the healing process. On a nal note, tragedy affects everyone differently, and you dont have to be a rst responder to struggle through this crisis. Ac cording to the National Institute of Health, 70 percent of Americans have been exposed to a traumatic event that can create signicant dis tress and overwhelm our usual coping mech anisms. Many people experience symptoms such as: inability to sleep, loss of appetite, lack of motivation, irritability, and muscle aches and pains. Understand that these are normal physical reactions to an abnormal situation, and make sure that you recognize the need to take care of yourself. Try to rest, get some exercise and eat healthy. Make time to do something that relaxes and helps you unwind. Talk to someone about how you are feeling. The rst several weeks are the most difcult. Most importantly, if these symptoms do not begin to improve within a few weeks, make sure that you reach out to someone for help. We are all in this together. So be that encouragement and help for those around you and ask for and accept help when you need to. May we all take comfort from the words of Jesus: So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
