It STILL boggles my mind that Ive been married for 34 years. Mornings were spent on the beach and in the water and the evenings found us enjoying the local restaurants and activi ties. Sunday morning I was watching families having fun remembering family vacations we spent at the beach. My next thought was where in the world did the time go? My oldest daughter will be 30 this year while the youngest just turned 26. Now even more than I did then, I make sure to enjoy every moment of much-needed down time with my family. Panama City Beach is one of the friend liest places I have ever visited which is why we make it an annual vacation for our anniversary. Not only are there folks from Florida, many visitors are from Tennessee, Georgia and, of course, Alabama with their beach accessories proudly displaying Roll Tide. As a proud Buckeye, and now Sem inole since my daughter is a FSU alumni (sorry Gators), you know I had something to say about Roll Tide. Folks are more relaxed while on vaca tion and you nd yourself chatting and getting to know people throughout the day. When folks nd out Im 56 and a tness instructor, the rst thing they say is I could never do that. I cant even make myself exercise. And right there is where I would stop them and say, Take the word cant out of your vocabulary. It amazes me the amount of people that will talk themselves out of doing some thing without even giving it a try. How do you know you are not able to do something unless you give it a shot? When you get down to it, its not that you cant. Its that you WONT. What you need to understand is without your health, you have nothing. You can work your butt off scratching and claw ing your way to move up the ladder at work, but if youre being unhealthy while you do it, how much of that money will you be able to enjoy if you become ill? Taking that a step further, how helpful will you be to your family if you are in the hospital? Important reasons to give it a try and make a few healthy life style changes. If you still nd yourself saying I cant do this or I cant do that, its time to re move that word from your vocabulary once and for all. When you remove the word cant from your vocabulary, you stop being your own worst enemy. You no longer al low negative thoughts caused by the word cant to take root. Then one day the word cant that you used to use will have dis appeared. Today is the day to make this simple change and remove the word cant. You CAN do it! Have a wonderful week.

Within the Suwannee Valley, the demand for water is ex pected to increase by 70 million gallons of water per day by 2035. Florida manages water supply de mands through the imple mentation of planning and projects that reduce and reuse water. To bring awareness to the importance of wa ter reuse projects, the Suwannee River Water Management District, in partnership with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and other water manage ment districts, celebrated last week as Water Reuse Week. Water reuse is the prac tice of using reclaimed water (storm runoff or wastewater), instead of fresh groundwater or sur face water such as rivers, lakes or streams, to meet a water supply demand. It reduces demands on valu able surface and ground waters used for drinking water sources, eliminates discharges that may pol lute valuable surface wa ters and recharges ground water resources. Working with our local communities and stakeholders is essential to identifying innovative opportunities for water reuse, Hugh Thomas, executive director for the SRWMD, said in a release. Where ever we can save groundwater and surface water use we should. Conservation is not optional if we want to ensure water is available for nature and for future generations. Florida is a national leader in reuse. Since 2005, the District has received more than $21 million for reuse projects and partnered with the cities of Lake City, Live Oak, Monticello and Ala chua to provide funding assistance for established reclaimed water programs for their local utilities. Through the funding, these communities created reuse water for residential and commercial irriga tion, golf course irriga Water reuse helps meet water supply demands 88788-1 tion, industrial machinery cooling, roadway mainte nance and more. Reuse is an integral part of meeting the states existing and future water supply needs while sus taining natural systems. The SRWMD, along with its state partners, con tinue to work together to enhance coordination, consistency and efcien cies of reclaimed water projects. The mission of the dis trict is to protect and man age water resources using science-based solutions to support natural systems and the needs of the pub lic. The SRWMD holds true to the belief of water for nature, water for peo ple. Headquartered in Live Oak, the district serves 15 surrounding north-central Florida counties. LIVE OAK Purple Hat Productions has released the schedule for the 11th annual Purple Hatters Ball. Returning to its home at the beautiful Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park on June 1-2, the intimate twoday music festival raises awareness for The Rachel Morningstar Foundation (a non-prot 501c3 organi zation) in honor of music lover Rachel Morningstar Hoffman. Purple Hatters Ball 2018 will showcase a diverse lineup of music on two stages including the picturesque Amphitheater Stage sur rounded by massive live oak trees draped with Spanish moss, and the much-loved Beach Stage, which offers plenty of shaded area for dancing during daytime sets and sundrenched sand along the black Suwannee River, where festival goers chill on inatable rafts and play games. PHB has always been about bringing together Rachels favorite artists and 2018 is no exception. Friday kicks off at the Amphithe ater with Atlantas Hive Mind, which is led by bass ist Dave McSweeney, who has been part of PHB from the beginning with Green house Lounge. The middle of the night features the return of much-loved PHB artists Toubab Krewe and The Heavy Pets. Friday also includes the rst SOSMP performance by Southern Avenue, a ve-piece blues and soul blues band from Purple Hatters Ball daily schedule released Memphis. The night closes out with a set from Arizo nas Spafford. Saturday afternoon is all about the Beach Stage with performances by Vlad the Inhaler, Trial by Stone, Cat sh Alliance and MZG. Then Rachels loving mother, Margie Weiss (aka Mama Margie), will lead an emotional ceremony cele brating her daughters mem ory. Each year, they release 24 monarch butteries 23 to represent Rachels age when she was taken from this world and 1 for her spir it that lives on. This year, Mama Margie will share several positive updates on progress being made by the Rachel Morningstar Foundation and unveil a documentary about Rachels Law. Following Mama Mar gies talk guests are treated to sets by Dubconscious, Roosevelt Collier and Breaking Biscuits featuring Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein from The Disco Biscuits, and Adam Deitch and Borham Lee of Break Science. The experimental band has only played a handful of shows, and this marks their rst perfor mance in the Southeast. The festival closes out with sev en-piece super funk futurists Lettuce, who are known for throwing down some of their best live performances on the SOSMP Amphithe ater Stage.

The National Associa tion of Letter Carriers and local rural letter carriers collected more than 12,000 pounds in Suwannee Coun ty during the food drive May 12, while Hamilton County residents donated more than 1,200 pounds and Lafayette County let ter carriers collected 300 pounds of non-perishable food. Local postmasters Chris Byrd (Live Oak), Veronica Chesser (White Springs), Patti Ferreira (Mayo), Sue Jones (OBrien and McAlpin), Brett Land (Branford), Rhoda Norton (Wellborn), Lisa Roberts (Jasper), Ken Stakick (Jen nings) worked with the United Way of Suwannee Valley to coordinate the food drive. Also help ing were Aimee Greene (NALC steward in Live Oak), Dale Ratliff (Live Oak supervisor) and Greg Taylor (Jaspers ofcer in charge). The food collected in Suwannee County was distributed to food pantries at First Baptist Church in Live Oak, Christ Central Ministries, Love INC, The Arc North Florida and Vivid Visions. Receiving food in Lafayette County were Seven Gables and the Alton Church of God. On behalf of the re cipient programs and, ultimately, the families in need of the food, thank you to each and every postal patron for the food donations and to each and every letter carrier for proudly doing the extra work required, United Way Executive Director Rita Dopp said in a re lease. Postal food drive collects 13,500 pounds The food drive comes at a crucial time of year for food needs in the commu nity, when holiday dona tions are depleted and the summer is fast approach ing with the many children who depend on the school lunch program out for the summer months, which increases demands on the local food pantries. Food banks and food pantries have reported a huge increase in the re quests for food the past two years with the general costs of food and fuel increasing. nn BRANFORD The Branford Fourth of July Committee is accepting applications for vendor booths for the River Re union, as well as local talent to perform during the event.

According to the headline, money is the No. 1 relationship killer. On one hand, I have to agree: family members quarrel over money and go years without speaking. Friendships end over loans not given or not re paid, and marriages experience huge struggles when both sides arent working together toward a common nancial goal. But on the other hand, lets be careful to see the real problem here: money itself is amoral. Money can be a blessing or curse, depending on its use. It is the nature of the person using the money that determines its morality. The Bible speaks often to the issue of money because it is a fact of life: we need money to live. I Timothy 6:710 records some basic truths: For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and de struction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil I once heard a joke about a greedy, miser of a man who hoarded money his entire life and was bound and determined to take it with him when he died. He in structed his wife to place his wealth in the casket when he passed away; he wanted no one else, including her, to enjoy his money after he was gone. After his funeral, friends and family were curious to know whether she car ried out his wishes; Of course, she replied, but instead of handling all that cash, it was much more convenient to write him a check! For sure, you cant take it with you! The word content is dened as quietness of mind; satisfaction. When we are struggling with nancial issues, isnt quietness of mind the rst thing to go? Es pecially if the struggle includes other people? But notice the last part of this scripture; it tells us that the root of the problem is not money, but the love of money is where all kinds of problems begin. Constantly overextended on your budget? Continually arguing with your spouse over money? A workaholic with no time for your family? These are just a few of the temptations and traps that plunge men into ruin. One of the biggest traps here is to think that more money will solve these problems. In Luke 16:10 the Bible says, Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much If the way we are handling the money we have is damaging the rela tionships in our lives, there is a good chance that more of it may make things even worse.. In his book Money Answers, nancial planner and best-selling author Dave Ramsey agrees with Gods Word that contentment is the most important nancial concept. He writes, Happiness is sold to us as an event or thing, and consequently our nances have suffered. Fun can be bought with money, but happiness cannot. In other words, contentment is not found in gathering more stuff, but in our relationship with God and others. Changing our focus on how we pursue happiness will ul timately change our nancial situation and our life for the better. After all, in the end it will not be our checkbook, but our hearts that matter.

SEE RUSSIA, PAGE 11A So two things happened this past week that made me feel like it was dj vu all over again. First, I got a message from some one claiming to be from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the de partment of tax crime division. I was informed that my physical address is under investigation and an arrest warrant has been issued under my name. Before you read this, the feds might have busted down my door and taken me away. The message instructed me to contact the tax and crime investigation department at 209-829-4085. Before I called the number given to clear up the matter, I did a Google search for the phone number on the re cording. It turns out I am not the only one who has been called by this number with a warrant out for their arrest. If this number calls you, do not answer and do not worry. My longtime readers might remember I wrote about a similar scam that had my wife extremely worried that the IRS was coming for us in November 2015. The phone number used was different and this message was left on my cell phone, not my landline, but it is the same type of scam. The IRS and the FBI would never call you and ask to send any money to clear up a situation. If it were that easy, Trump would have cleared up his problems with both organizations long ago. The other event that felt all-too-familiar was the school shooting in Texas. It has only been three months since the Parkland, Florida incident. This unfortunate event really puts a spotlight on how inept the Florida Legis latures response to our school shooting has been. The requirement that all ries need to be purchased by those older than 21 would not have stopped the Texas shooting. The 17-year-old obtained his guns illegally from his fa ther. The new underfunded requirement that each school needs one armed guard or policeman for each 1,000 stu dents would not have stopped this most recent incident. The Texas school had two policemen present, and 10 stu dents were still killed and many others were wounded. The one idea that might have reduced the damage done by the student shooter was arming teachers and staff at the school. Before I continue, let me state that the fact that such measures even need to be considered is an ex tremely sad reection of how bad the current state of af fairs is in this country. Sadly, the Florida Legislature took this good idea and made the requirements so onerous and untenable as to make me object to them in their current form. The law could have been a simple sentence or two. Teachers or staff legally employed at any Florida school, that also posses a valid concealed carry permit, may do so at their school. Concealed carry either works or it doesnt. In Florida, we must think that it works because we have more con cealed carry permit holders than any other state in the union. I know some parents who dont own guns and dont want guns around their kids would object to such a move by the Florida Legislature. What those parents fail to realize is that in Florida, their children are already around guns nearly everywhere. Our children are around guns at nearly every store, movie theatre, mall, ea mar ket, and restaurant you frequent, and those guns are in the hands of concealed permit holders with possibly less education and certainly a less thorough background check than any employee at any Florida school. The awed guardian program the legislature imple mented this year requires nearly the same type of training required of police ofcers, but without any extra pay or enhanced retirement status police ofcers receive. It also allows school boards to opt out of the program, which most did. I would be for the program if teachers could retire with more than $100,000 a year retirements like the ofcer who stayed outside while students and teachers were being shot at in Parkland. Think teachers dont need guns? Consider this: more students have been shot at school in 2018 than service members in our armed forces. The students wont be re ceiving any 21-gun salutes.

Robert Muellers investigation into whether President Donald Trump and the Russians colluded to rig the 2016 presidential election so far has borne little fruit. The Democrats and their media allies would love to nd some Russian collusion and interference. I can help them discover some, but I doubt that they will show much inter est. Here it goes. For years, Russia has been the worlds largest oil producer. With in recent times, the U.S. has edged Russia out of the No. 1 spot. Much of the increased U.S. production is attributable to hydraulic fracturing, or frack ing, in the shale formations in Texas and North Dakota. Now the U.S. is a net exporter of oil. Exports of oil have exceeded oil imports since 2011. This hasnt sat well with Russia, which has taken measures to hinder our oil pro ductivity. An American Spectator magazine story points to the kind of Russian collusion and domestic meddling that meets the approval of Democrats, leftists and their media allies. The story is aptly titled Russian funding of U.S. environmental groups shows how collusion is done (http://tinyurl.com/y897kbt3). A 2014 U.S. Senate Envi ronment and Public Works Committee report identied that the San Francisco-based Sea Change Foundation receives funding from a Bermuda-based shell company known as Klein Ltd. Klein Ltd. was created by attorneys from Wakeeld Quin, a law rm that has close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Klein Ltd. operates as a pass-through organization for foreign funds going into the U.S. The IRS requires nonprot organizations to le 990 forms that report their activities. Those 990s show that Klein Ltd. contributed $23 million to the Sea Change Foundation in 2010 and again in 2011. Thats about half of the contributions Sea Change Foundation received during those years. Those same 990 forms show that the Sea Change Foundation distributed more than $20 million in grants in 2010 and 2011 to environmental organiza tions. It gave more than $40 million in grants to leftist environmental groups, such as the Natural Resources Defense Council, The Sierra Club Foundation, the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund, the Tides Foun dation, the Union of Concerned Scientists and the World Wildlife Fund. In return for the grant money, those leftist environmen talists were to promote awareness of climate change, reduce reliance on high carbon energy, educate the public about climate and clean energy and promote cli mate and clean energy communications. A U.S. House Science, Space and Technology Committee report, titled Russian Attempts to Inuence U.S. Domestic Energy Markets by Exploiting Social Media, details that the en vironmental groups used the Russian money to protest the process of fracking and ght the building of the Keystone XL pipeline. If environmentalists can thwart U.S. oil pro duction, Russia, which is a major energy supplier to Eu rope, stands to gain greater economic and political power. Rep. Lamar Smith, the chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, has raised the possi bility that those complicit in the scheme to use American r From Russia with love MAY 23 & 24, 2018 The Suwannee Democrat, The Jasper News and Mayo Free Press welcomes letters from readers on matters of public interest, with the following guidelines: Letters must contain your full name, address, daytime phone number and city of residence.

Petty Ofcer 2nd Class Eileen Lourdes Fracas so is a sonar technician (geographical) assigned to DDG 116 in Bath, Maine. As a sonar technician Fracasso is responsible for searching, classifying and defending the ship against enemy submarines. I enjoy traveling around the world and experiencing different cultures and peo ple, said Fracasso. DDG 116 is current ly undergoing tests and trials in preparation for delivery to the U.S. Navy from shipbuilder Bath Iron Works. Arleigh Burke class destroyers measure approx imately 500 feet long and are powered by four gas turbines that allow the ship to achieve over 30 mph in open seas. Destroyers are tactical multi-mission sur face combatants capable of conducting anti-air warfare, anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, and ballistic missile defense, as well as humanitarian assis tance. Fast, maneuverable, and technically advanced, destroyers provide the required warghting exper tise and operational exi bility to execute a variety of missions. Thomas J. Hudner Jr., a naval aviator who re tired as a captain, received the Medal of Honor from President Harry S. Truman for displaying uncommon valor during an attack on his element leader, the rst African American naval aviator to y in combat, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, said Cmdr. Nathan W. Scherry, commanding of cer, PCU Thomas Hudner. On 07 May 2012, Secre tary Mabus announced that DDG 116 will be named in Captain Hudners hon or. Today, as the Navys nest 300 Sailors crew the 66th Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer, they do so with a tremendous amount of honor, pride, and sense of duty. We are extremely Mayo native serves aboard one of the U.S. Navys rst Stealth Ships honored to be able to carry Captain Hudners values and legacy forward so that they are never forgotten. We are proud to be able to carry out our missions in defense of our countrys freedom and values, and humbled to be part of the Hudner family. Fracasso has carried lessons learned from her hometown into her military service. Growing up in my hometown, I learned that staying humble and work ing hard will always reek benets, said Fracasso. With a crew of more than 300 sailors, each crew members job is important to the smooth operation of the ship. The jobs range from weapon handling to navigation. Fracasso has military ties with family mem bers who have previously served and is honored to carry on the family tradi tion. My father, Terry Giv ens, retired as a petty of cer rst class in the Navy and was deployed to the Gulf War during his ser vice, said Fracasso. Fracassos proudest accomplishment was rep resenting the United States in an event for D-Day in Normandy. This was special be cause it was a representa tion of diplomatic democ racy and honoring those who lost their lives for freedom, added Fracasso. Close living conditions build strong fellowship among the crew, Navy of cials explained. The crew is highly motivated, and quickly adapt to changing conditions. It is a busy life of specialized work, watches, and drills. As a member of one of the U.S. Navys newest ships, and other sailors know they are part of a legacy that will last be yond their lifetimes pro viding the Navy the nation needs. Serving in the Navy means keeping the family tradition alive of protecting our country, said Fracas so. The construction of the ship is over 98% complete. The ship is scheduled for commissioning in late 2018 in Boston, Mass.

The Farm Bureau members discussed various federal pol icies that affect agricultural producers during the visit May 8-10. The visit included a series of conversations on proposals for the new farm bill, the North American Free Trade Agreement and agricultural labor reform. Our members were solid representatives of farm fam ilies in our state, Lafayette County Farm Bureau President Rod Land said. I appreciate their willingness to leave their farms and ranches and join us in Washington. Local farmers also met with ofcials at the U.S. Environmen tal Protection Agency to learn more about the administrations strategies for implementing regulatory reform. All sessions were held as part of Florida Farm Bureaus Field to the Hill trip, an annual initiative that gives members opportuni ties to engage in constructive dialogues with our national leaders. The trip is a positive example of citizen participation in rep resentative government. Farm Bureau volunteers seek con structive policy solutions that benet the larger society while helping to sustain domestic food production. I thank Congressional delega tion for the hospitable welcome we received while we were in Washington, Land said. We had excellent, constructive meet ings with our national represen tatives. I know they will keep our perspectives in mind as they consider policies that have a direct impact upon farm families in Florida. Lafayette Farm Bureau visits Washington bttftttnft nnnbffnnn

Emergency Management Assistant Director Pam Al len asked to be appointed as the vector control person for the county. She said this will enable her to pur chase pesticides and start spraying for mosquitoes at the request of the commis sioners. Allen has her license to spray after she decided to get her license on her own time. Before we could actu ally spray, we had to do trappings, Allen said. The county needs to have a baseline amount to show if there is an in crease in mosquitoes. Allen said the amount of mosquitos trapped were high. We trapped male and females and normally you only trap females, Allen said. Allen plans on spray ing in a ve-mile radius around the site of the con rmed case twice a week for six weeks. She said she needed to get permission from land owners to also spray up their driveways because the mosquitoes were so bad. I still want to know why I wasnt notied sooner, Commissioner William Mitchell said. The EEE death occurred in his district. Allen said now that she is the vector control person, she will do 911 reverse calls in the future to alert citizens.

For many years, the late Cousin Thelma Boltin began each Florida Folk Festival, which celebrates its 66th birthday this year with those words following the sing ing of Old Folks at Home and The Lords Prayer by the reigning Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair. The old dinner bell which was situated on the southeast side of the marble stage near the south gate entrance of the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park would ring, and the annual Florida Folk Festival would commence. The Festivals history and evolution are as interesting and as changeable as the rise and fall of the Suwannee River which ows through the heart of the grounds on which this, the oldest state sponsored Folk Festival in the nation, is held. First, there was the river, the three syl lable Su-wan-nee River, which Stephen Collins Foster, (1826-1864) shortened to two syllables Swan-nee in his famous composition Old Folks at Home which was the rst American composition to sell a million copies in the 19th Century after its publication in 1851 and immortalized the 250-mile stream, which, as rivers go, and dont egg my house or anything for saying this, is pretty insignicant, except to those of us who love it and celebrate its beauty. But it was Foster with his tune who immortalized it, and it was a push by the Florida Federation of Music Clubs for Old Folks at Home to become the state song of Florida in 1935 in a bill co-spon sored by the late Senator Clayton Bass from Suwannee County, that gave impe tus for the creation of the Stephen Foster Memorial Commission and initial funding for a Memorial to Foster to be situated somewhere on the banks of the river. A major historical event called the Second World War held up construction of the Memorial for four years, but the dream lived on, and, after construction of the south gatehouse and the Foster Museum, both designed by Suwannee County and Live Oak native architect Mackey White and dedicated in 1950 by then-Governor Fuller Warren, the, then-Stephen Foster Memorial was off and running. Initially, the Florida Federation of Mu sic Clubs held title to 100 acres of land donated by two or three White Springs families for the location of the park and that acreage was later increased to 243 and title was transferred over to the Stephen Foster Memorial Commission, which was an independent commission that answered only to the Governor and the Florida Legislature. It was at a meeting of the National Feder ation of Music Clubs, held at the old Colo nial Hotel, which was situated on the north side of the south gate leading into the park in 1951, that the late Mrs. W.A. Lillian Saunders, longtime secretary of the Ste phen Foster Memorial Commission, and prominent north Florida clubwoman who served on the Boards of the Florida Federation of Music Clubs, the National Federation, and the Florida Folk life Council, who was honored in 1994 by having the major thoroughfare through the park named in her memory by act of the Florida Legislature asked a question of the President of the National Federation, the late Mrs. Ada Hoddings Miller, of Rhode Island, about the most appropriate kind of musical venue that should be cel ebrated at the park, Mrs. Miller suggested a Folk Festival and suggested the State of Florida engage the services of the late Sarah Gertrude Knott, a native of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, who was the major organizer of the national folk festival in Washington D.C. And so, in 1953, after Mrs. Saunders, Ms. Knott, and the late Cousin Thelma Boltin, to use a genteel old expression motored around the State of Florida and gathered the most eclectic mixture of talents at their perusal, the rst Florida Folk Festival was held in White Springs. The event featured so many colors and textures of the Sunshine States multicultural fabric, Minorcans from St. Augustine, Greek Dancers from Tarpon Springs, African American songs and dances from our own north Flor ida, cracker lore and traditional hymns, folk dancing, Floridas Seminole Indians, Jewish songs from a Jewish Cantor in Jacksonville, Czechoslovakian singing and dancing from the Czech community in Marsarkytown, and on, and on, and on, it went. By the end of that rst Festival in 1953, a precedence had been set, and here is the PRECEDENCE, that I feel EVERYONE should catch a glimpse, because it still holds true. The Florida Folk Festival is a cultural event. It celebrates the rich history of Florida. It was never designed to be a Party in the Pines, nor a Suwannee River Jam, and those Festivals are wonderful, but they dont celebrate the true heritage nor the meaningful heart of the state of Florida, they were designed to be purely commercial and, to be honest, the Folk Festival was too in its initial days. It succeeded so much that in 1972, close to a half million festival goers descended on the town of White Springs for a kind of mini-Woodstock Celebration that left many in awe, and left the Festival know ing it had moved far away from the fam ily event for which it was designed. The following year, the Festival celebrated on Labor Day with the Festival which wasnt the Festival but was, and the crowds righted themselves but the spirit of free thought and youth lingered on, and in 1974, the Festival was moved from its traditional rst weekend in May to Me morial Day, and there it has stayed except for the year of the Bugaboo Fire, when smoke was so thick, the Festival was can celed, held in the fall of the year, and then moved back to Memorial Day. During those years, the festival has seen a number of changes. Some would say the changes are positive, others might say, the changes were not. The Florida Folklife Program, with its staff folklorist, brought its component to the Festival and created at thematic for each festival, and it was an impetus in creating more stages. For many years, the Florida Folk Heritage Awards were held at the Festival, and, personally, this is per sonally, I think they still should be. I think about the late Barbara Beau champ, who as the professional and super organized personal assistant to the late Cousin Thelma Boltin for many years, and one of her great quotes. Someone asked her to describe the Florida Folk Festival, and she responded: The Florida Folk Festival is like a blind man touching an elephant. It all depends on where he touches the ele phant as to how he describes it and what his perspective is, and thats the way the Festival is. It means different things to different individuals, but no matter where you touch it, its still the Florida Folk Festival. The Florida Folk Festival owes as much of its birthing to neighboring Suwannee County as to any place. Those from Suwannee County who served on the original Florida Folk Festival Associ ation included the late Mr. J.L. McMul len, the late Honorable Governor Cary Hardee, the late Ms. Helen Bixler, and the late Mr. Aubrey Fowler. These no table citizens of our area helped so much with the initial founding of festival still alive today. That birthing was perpetuated, nurtured, and cared for by many local citizens and performers in our area. Lets just say that the vision of those who founded the Festival of a celebration of a slice of life in the state of Florida is still going on and it all began with a river and a song, and the songs keep on owing at the Festival like the river made famous by Foster. Come join us May 25-27 and celebrate this major cultural event here on the banks of the Suwannee in White Springs at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. Sixty-six years old and still going strong singing, dancing, preparing mouthwatering hopping john, fried chick en, sweet potato, pie, barbeque and col lard greens cooked up just for you, mak ing lots of beautiful arts and crafts and singing songs you know and some you dont in languages you know and in those you dont, something for the young, the old, and those in-between, Way down upon the Suwanee River. Celebrate Florida and dont forget to celebrate and remember those who gave their lives on freedoms altar and proudly wear your Memorial Day poppy to remember those who gave their all for our freedom. Ready or not, here it comes, the 66th annual Florida Folk Festival. From the Eight Mile Still on the Woodpecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter. Happy Memorial Day!! rfntbrrntr environmentalists to ad vance Russian propaganda and interests could be in violation of federal statutes that apply to foreign agents lobbying in behalf of for eign interests. Russia is also a major supplier of natural gas to all of Europe. U.S. natural gas producers long wished to export some of their product to Europe and Ja pan to take advantage of higher prices. But up until 2016, they were blocked by natural gas export restric tions. In the case of natural gas, the Russians didnt have to bribe environmen talists to do their dirty work. They had willing support from U.S. indus trial giants such as Dow, Alcoa, Celanese and Nu cor, members of Americas Energy Advantage. These U.S.. companies lobbied against natural gas exports, saying that it would be un patriotic to allow unlimited natural gas exports. Export restrictions kept natural gas prices articially low and gave U.S. manufacturing companies a raw materi al advantage. The lifting of export restrictions has raised natural gas prices in the U.S. but lowered them in the recipient countries and weakened Russias economic and political hold on Europe. In my book, thats a good thing. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University. To nd out more about Walter E.

MAY 23 & 24, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 14A State & Region jason.smith@ganews.com THOMASVILLE, Ga. Gone are the days when a pastor told the congregation to turn to a certain page in the hymnal. It is not that simple anymore, said Andy Daughtry, associate pastor of worship at Thomasville First Baptist Church. Technology is a wonderful tool we have to enhance our worship environ ments, Daughtry said. The preaching of the (Bible) needs to be heard and un derstood, the sound and lighting need to encourage congregational involvement in singing, prayers and scripture reading. Inadequate or poorly run audio or vi sual technology can hinder worship. We are not putting on a show, however. Tech nology in worship should not draw atten tion to itself, but allow our full attention to be on the worship of God. The SunLight Project team repre senting newspapers in Valdosta, Thom asville, Moultrie, Milledgeville, Ga., and Live Oak, Fla. took a look at how different churches incorporate their music ministry into discipleship and evangelism, and how some churches promote the next generation of musicians. Thomasville First Baptist Church man ages old technology with new technology. Internet-based software connects vol unteers to where they need to respond during the service. The church has a vol unteer audio/visual team of more than 30 with nine volunteers at every First Baptist service to provide audiovisual support. It also coordinates a volunteer base with church jobs that need to be led. Sunday services are recorded and ar chived to the churchs website. The major duty of the salaried church media director is to edit church sermon broadcasts. Plans are that the service will be be live-streamed, Daughtry said. Churches have extended beyond using new technology. They also incorporate instruments beyond the traditional piano and organ into songs and worship. These changes have led to two different styles of church services: contemporary and traditional. Contemporary Music The Lifespring Worship Team of the Lifespring Community Church in Moul trie leads Sunday and Wednesday services and some special events. Its ve members play contemporary music with guitars, bass guitar, drums and keyboards. Robbie Pitts, 35, is the youngest mem ber of the group. He started performing at church as a youth leader at First Baptist Church of Moultrie. John Pitts, Robbies uncle, is the Lifes pring Worship Team leader. The bassist, Robbies father, is the oldest at 65. Randy Bennett is the drummer, and Nicki Under wood plays acoustic guitar and vocals. The instruments heavily inuence the sound of worship. Were more just like a rock band that worships Jesus, Robbie Pitts said. Its modern, rock-style music. Its not your piano and organ at all. The group perform some of John Pitts original music. He also wrote reli gious-based lyrics to the sounds of groups such as The Eagles and The Beatles. But that doesnt mean old standards are tossed to the wayside. Theyre just given rfntfrt a new treatment. The group works old hymnals to t its sound. Theres about 10 different versions of Amazing Grace, Robbie Pitts said. Weve done several versions of it. Its Well With My Soul, theres two ver sions. Another song is a medley that includes Nothing But the Blood of Jesus. With the new versions of timeless songs, the church uses MediaShout, a computer program that displays the words so the congregation can sing along. Pitts said he believes contemporary music is more attractive than traditional organ music in attracting a younger gen eration to church. Contemporary Christian music may help some people adjust, he said. They can be led deeper to a relationship with Christ with that environment. The worship team goal is to add to the service, he said, not be the focal point of the service. Theres always a ne line between performance and worship, Pitts said. If you show up and its just a performance, you havent really served the purpose its supposed to be. Its used to draw you closer to God. If you draw nearer to God, and to Jesus, Hell draw closer to us. To bring the congregation into the service, the team may start with uptempo songs then slow down as it gets into the message. The songs assist the audience in forgetting about outside issues in their lives and setting the proper mood for worship. Traditional Music First Baptist Church in Dalton is more traditional and has a choir for each age group, ages 3 to senior adults. We dont have any groups, other than our mens ensemble, that is lled by au dition, said Susan Deal, minister of mu sic and worship at First Baptist Church of Dalton. Anyone is welcome to join any group. Youth choir participation has ebbed and owed during its 30-year existence but it is riding a pretty good wave right now, Deal said. The youth group leads in worship from time to time throughout the year and on special occasions. Deal said First Baptist Church of Dal ton has a Youth Sunday to encourage young people to use their gifts, not only their musical gifts but speaking and read ing scripture. At the end of the year, the group will have a music and mission trip. This year, the choir is going to Hous ton, Texas, where in addition to singing in concerts, the youth will participate in Hurricane Harvey relief. We like to marry music and worship leadership with action outside the walls of our church, she said. Thats why all of our choirs and ensembles exist. First Baptist Church of Dalton also teaches younger church members the fun damentals of music. We have graded childrens choirs that meet throughout the school year, Deal said. They get music education. They learn some music theory, the hymns of our faith and how to sing and play musi cal instruments, rhythm instruments and Orff instruments: miniature percussion instruments such as xylophones and ma rimbas. The church also hosts a worship arts camp each summer, Deal said. Its a week where students get more instrument train ing, choreography, and of course, singing. They get to perform with and accompany the different groups. Thats for those who have completed kindergarten through fth grade. Deal said she strives to use the talents of the congregation rather than others talents. I rarely use (pre-recorded music) in our Sunday morning worship service, she said. I have used it when our youth choir has traveled once in the six years Ive been here, and that was out of neces sity. Philosophically, we believe our church has gifted people within our congregation, and we would like to allow them the op portunity to use those gifts. We will cre ate orchestrations based on the talents and skills available to us. Mixing Two Styles Alan Lott, worship pastor at First Bap tist Church in Live Oak, isnt a fan of the terms contemporary and traditional music. It varies at different churches, he said explaining why. Still, First Baptist Church has three services on Sundays and each vary in the type of service offered: the 8:30 a.m. service is more contemporary featuring a full band and choir, with the 11 a.m. service being more traditional with piano and organ music. The evening service is a blend of the two types of music from the morning services. The only thing that makes it contem porary or traditional is the music, Lott said. The sermon is the same. The choir, which includes 32 people ranging from teenagers to people in their 70s, performs every other Sunday during the early service at First Baptist Church in Live Oak. The church also has a praise team of eight vocalists that rotate each week. I like to rotate them so they have a chance to soak in their service rather than giving all the time, Lott said. First Baptist in Live Oak also made sig nicant technological upgrades last year, Lott said, which includes a wide-screen monitor, a laser projector and an iMac computer to run software. Lott said the projector is used for an nouncements, to countdown the start of the service and play videos during the sermon. The song lyrics and scripture are pro jected for the congregation to see. The sound system is used extensively during each service. The reason we use technology is to facilitate better worship and eliminate dis tractions, Lott said, adding for example, without the sound system, the congrega tion may not be able to hear the sermon and become distracted from the message. First Baptist in Live Oak began live-streaming its services last year, using a ve-member camera team that has two people operating the cameras each week. The church also has a three-member multimedia team operating the computer software and lighting and a three-member sound team. Reaching out with technology Michael Young, music pastor at Cros spointe Christian Centre in Dalton, utiliz es audio-visual technology to reach mem bers of the congregation who cant attend church services. Technology is a huge part of our musi cal ministry, Young said. On our (church) screens, we have live shots of the people performing, he said. The words are on the lower third of the screen. Those same shots go live on Face book, so people can watch at home. That is mainly for church members who are unable to attend. We started at the beginning of summer two years ago, and we saw that a lot of our church mem bers, when they went on vacation, were commenting and saying how glad they were to be able to see the service. The recordings are also used for out reach, Young said. It allows potential vis itors a chance to preview the service. People can see what a service is like before they walk in the doors, Young said. But our primary purpose is for church members to be able to watch when they arent able to join us in person. Crosspointe Christian Centre has a youth band that utilizes technology to practice. One thing we do is to record ourselves or get recordings of the vocal parts we want to sing, Young said. At the be ginning of the week, Ill have that online, and they can go online and listen to the part they are going to sing. The idea is that they are at least com fortable with it when they get to practice on Wednesday night, and, on Wednesday night, we arent teaching them for the rst time but polishing up the group. Many worship pastors today were heav ily inuenced by participation in their churches when they were young. These leaders are now cultivating future musicians for the church through their ministries. I think its important. Its our duty as musicians and worship leaders in the church to not just play music, but to pass on those abilities. Just like as believers we have the call to disciple, as musicians we have the call to raise other worship leaders, said Spence Parkerson, worship pastor at Crosspointe Church in Valdosta. Parkerson started a youth band in his ministry to grow new musicians in the church. We started (the youth band) within the last year, Parkerson said. Our goal there is to introduce high school, even middle school students, to an environment where they can discover and develop their mu sical abilities and learn how to use those gifts to lead others in worship. The youth band is the rst part of a process Parkerson uses at his church to integrate new musicians into the worship team at Crosspointe Church. At the high school level, the band SEE SING, PAGE 15A b rfnrrtbttrtbftbn rtrfnrtbrbfrbtnttb ft

Florida. meetings will be open to the public. Dated this 30th day of November, 2017. Glenda B. Williams works on playing together and keeping tempo, Parkerson said. The second stage is the college band. Once (musicians have) developed a certain level of foundational skills, if we are able, we will move them into the col lege ministry so they can become more comfortable and competent at playing at a higher level, Parkerson said. From there, Parkerson tests and ana lyzes musicians abilities to determine if they are ready to play Sunday mornings. Thats what they are shooting for: I want to be able to play on Sunday morn ing, Parkerson said. We meet them where they are at and slowly equip them along the way. Parkerson said having the best musi cians on Sunday morning, and using it as a goal, helps build better services at all levels. I think, for me, it all starts from the top down, he said. I want to make sure Sunday morning is as excellent as it can be. To create a Sunday morning for the community that is exciting, engaging and really impactful when it comes to wor ship. When we have it from the top down, we can recreate that in our college and our high school. Parkerson uses the model to help younger musicians see there is an order of progression for music in the church playing in the youth band can lead to playing in college ministries and eventu ally performing in front of a full congre gation. For musicians who arent ready for the Sunday worship band, Crosspointe hosts Celebrate Recovery, a peer-based recov ery group based on biblical teachings. It also hosts a womens group and other events throughout the month that require musicians, Parkerson said. He plugs musicians into the events as a way to help them hone their musical crafts. Crosspointe Church doesnt offer any sort of regular classes or lessons on mu sic, but occasionally, it holds Saturday workshops for people interested in learn ing more about playing in the band or working in the audio/visual eld. During the sessions, Parkerson, musi cians, audio/visual technicians and other staff members do break-out sessions for different instruments and for the audio/ visual teams. Well do (workshops) occasionally, he said. After we did the rst one, we have to incorporate that more. It made the students feel special and we loved it as the older generation being able to pour into the students. Parkerson said his role isnt to create formal meetings, but to create a culture of discipleship, a culture of consistently pouring into other people. Every now and again, the college min istry does something called Story Tellers. It is similar to an open mic night where students are encouraged to sign up to play songs and perform poetry. While it is a benecial form of out reach, Parkerson said Story Tellers has helped him nd new musicians and aspir ing musicians. Thats an avenue where we get intro duced to a lot of people we didnt know of, he said. Crosspointe Churchs worship team has released ve studio albums to the public, hosted popular Christian bands and played in the community a few times, Parkerson said. Such endeavors allow the worship team and church to reach people outside of the congregation. Parkerson said his ultimate goal is to impact the lives of individuals on Earth and in the afterlife. What separates (playing in church) from being able to play music anywhere else is that you get to see your gift impact people for eternity, he said. You get to see people overcome things, be set free from things and connect with God in a way that maybe they wouldnt anywhere else. So, using your music to impact eterni ty. So, thats the coolest thing for me. Groomed for music Jeremiah Ross, one of the two worship pastors at Melody Christian Church in Live Oak, was, in some ways, raised for his role in the church. His father is a pastor, so he grew up spending a lot of time in church. He began singing when he was 7 years old and admits the church inuenced his singing. Even as he experimented with other genres, he always came back to gospel. As I got more mature, I saw peoples lives are saved and changed through ev eryday worship and just seeking God, Ross said. I saw how it can have a posi tive effect on other people. The Melody band performs a mixture of contemporary and traditional gospel songs. Ive always desired for people to feel the presence of God and know His good ness through my worship, said Traci Continued From Page 14A Sing Green, one of the two worship pastors at Melody Christian Church in Live Oak. I am walking in my purpose for God, and I am overwhelmed with gratitude to be able to do this with such an amazing church and church family. In addition to the bands and other con temporary additions to the worship ser vices, Melody has embraced technology and invested in it to add to their services. Melody Christian Church, which has been live-streaming its services for 10 years, has a sound system, described as concert quality by Melody Pastor Darrin Baldwin, colored background lights, spot light and moving lights. The church also utilizes a projector for hymn lyrics and scripture. Most people will watch our live streaming before coming to our church, Baldwin said, adding the church has peo ple from all across the world watching. I think technology has always had a posi tive impact. Helping make that impact is Glen Green, the audio-visual director for Mel ody. We started coming to Melody Church, and I expressed an interest in running sound, Green said. I began by helping out when needed. And now Im responsi ble for the entire department. He has a team of ve people that helps operate the sound system and projector and another team of seven people operat ing the cameras for live streaming. Melody encourages children to become part of the praise band some day. Children play as much of a role in worship as adults, Green said. So, when children/youth express interest in being a part of worship, we start them in Melody Kids church. Here, they develop skills and knowl edge of singing/playing instruments, Green said. As they grow, they move over to Melody Revolution Youth. Children can also sit in at practices for the Melody Main Church Worship Team and once they are ready, they can audition for the team. Teaching the next generation Jeremiah Spencer, minister of worship First Baptist Church of Thomasville, was in third grade when his father, Dan Spen cer, became First Baptists pastor. The elder Spencer now pastors First Baptist Church at Sevierville, Tenn. Im in charge of the music portion of our 11 oclock worship service and the technology that goes into that, Jeremiah Spencer said. A graduate of the Baptist College of Florida at Graceville, Spencer holds a bachelor of arts in contemporary worship ministry. He learned music theory and the au dio-visual technological side of worship. A baritone singer, Spencer plays the guitar. He performs church songs and Christian music exclusively contempo rary and from traditional hymnals. First Baptist has several services on Sundays. One at 8:30 a.m. is traditional in structure and choir members wear robes. Traditional church music is blended with newer pieces. At 11 a.m. Sundays, services are band-centered with drums, electric guitar, bass guitar, acoustic guitar, piano and vo calists who sing backup for Spencer. Spencer leads the churchs youth band. He helps pick songs, assists with one-onone training, mentors and handles sound and lighting. Ive been exactly where they are, Spencer said. First Baptist offers audio-visual tech nology classes for children in grades four through six. Amazing Grace was at one time a contemporary song no one knew, said Andy Daughtry, associate pastor of wor ship at Thomasville First Baptist Church. Worship is not style-dependent. It is an attitude of the heart, Daughtry said. While we do have multiple services that express different heart languages, the same gospel and the same story of Gods redeeming love is proclaimed in each one. That provides a beautiful unity to our community of faith. The SunLight Project team consists of reporters Jason A. Smith, Patti Dozier, Jessie R. Box, Alan Mauldin and Thomas Lynn.

What makes a clinician (doctor, nurse practitioner, or phy sician assistant) specially qualied to care for older people? When is it time to begin seeing such a health care provider? First, seniors need a geriatrically-pre pared clinician. These professionals study the knowledge, skills and approaches of the care of older persons the breadth of which increases daily. Be aware that many medical professionals who see a lot of older patients believe themselves to be geriatrically-prepared. Without being geriat rically prepared, their approach toward seniors may not have the same attention to overall well being. Whether theyre healthy or not, the aging adult is complex for a number of reasons. While specialists focus mainly on one piece of the puzzle each, a geriatrically-pre pared clinician knows they need to consider the complete puzzle when making any decisions. How do you know if a clinician is geriatrical ly-prepared? Here are two quick clues: 1. If (s)he does not seem concerned about subtle changes in your loved ones everyday function, and 2. If the only thing (s)he does after your loved one describes their problem is to pull out a prescription pad without reviewing all regular prescriptions, over-the-counter meds (OTC), vitamins, and herbal medications, (s)he is probably not geriatrical ly-prepared especially if the patient is seeing multiple clinicians. In contrast, geriatrical ly-prepared clinicians do the following: 1. They review all med ications with an eye to identifying meds that may no longer be needed or are no longer helpful. They are willing and able to safely discontinue a med ication no longer believed to be necessary. They will also work to simplify the number of meds and/or alter dosages. 2. They use every op portunity during the visit to observe the patient, such as walking with them to the exam room, and/ or asking them to remove clothing in order to see if there are any apparent difculties. They can also observe any adaptive be haviors your loved one may have adopted. 3. They ask about things they may not be able to observe. They will nor malize things that may be embarrassing or off-put ting to the patient. For ex ample, How many times have you fallen in the past six months? instead of Have you had any falls? When treating an older patient, a geriatrically-pre pared clinician focuses not only on nding one cor rect diagnosis, but also on nding all issues contrib uting to functional issues or loss. It takes a major shift in thinking. This shift will lead the Do you need a geriatrician? medical professional to consider risk versus ben et much more seriously. In an older person, it is far more important to weigh the benets and conse quences of any course of treatment. A geriatrical ly-prepared clinician will likely make treatment de cisions primarily based on the patients values, goals of care, and desired quali ty of life. Is the medical inter vention based not only on indication, but also on justication in this older person? Will the benet the patient experiences be worth the risk to them and their functioning? If the clinician doesnt discover the patients goals, how can he or she determine whether an intervention will be a benet? So, how do you know when its time to start seeing a geriatrically-pre pared medical profession al? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. Its not based on age alone. Every older adult perhaps ought to see one occasionally certainly in the event of a major illness, and es pecially in the event of a functional decline of any kind; for example, if you are no longer able to get around because your leg hurts. Anyone who suffers from chronic diseases should see a geriatrical ly-prepared clinician, re gardless of age. Even if your health care provider is not geri atrically-prepared, you can be. Spend time with them during appointments, ask questions, and make sure you understand the answers. Ultimately, its your life and your body, and its your choice how its treated.

Carlton Hall was patient Continued From Page 1B New Aaron McQuay and CJ Pepper delivered more than enough offense for a 29-0 rout of Bell to end the spring. I was just really pleased how everything seemed to come together, Branford coach Tim Clark said. All the answers that we wanted to get, we had pretty favorable out comes with them. Most of what the Bucs want ed to see offensively was what kind of trouble Pepper could cause a defense while moving all around the field. The answer was plenty. The rising senior caught four passes, including a touchdown, while also carrying five times for 45 yards and another score. Pepper is so versatile, Clark said. Hes just a freak athlete. Hes put some weight on and were able to move him around a little bit. He played four or five positions tonight. We wanted to experiment a little in this game and move him around and create differ ent ways to get him the ball in space. He really showed he could do about anything. Early on he caused the Bull dogs issues through the air, hauling in two passes on Bran fords first drive, including a 9-yard touchdown. He finished off the Bucs third drive with an 18-yard scoring run without being touched. When Pepper wasnt tortur ing Bells defense, McQuay was. An All-State honorable mention selection last fall, McQuay continued to power the Bucs offense in the spring game. A 34-yard run set up the first touchdown and he broke free from 63 yards out on the third play of the third quarter to extend Branfords lead to 22-0. McQuay finished with 166 yards on 12 carries as Bran ford ran for 189 yards on 26 carries through the three quar ters of varsity action. Branfords final score came on the next drive when Jevin Johnson hit a wide open Junior Cress for a 65-yard touchdown with 8:09 left in the third. Johnson completed 4 of 10 passes for 98 yards, while Seth Heiderman completed both of his pass attempts for six yards. Cress also registered a safe ty late in the first half when he sacked Bell quarterback Jonathon Walls for a nine-yard loss. It was just part of an im pressive defensive outing for the Bucs, who limited the Bulldogs to 52 yards through three quarters. Bell rushed for just 7 yards on 29 carries against Branfords varsity.

New offensive wrinkles help Suwannee top Florida High in spring game By Mike Jones michael.jones@gaflnews.com LIVE OAK Suwannee wrapped up the spring on a high note with a 10-7 win against Florida High on Friday. With spring football comes a lot of experimenting, and the new wrinkles the Bulldogs threw in on offense worked well. Despite scoring just 10 points, SHS gained 196 yards in three quarters of varsity action. Suwannee showed a new look as it ran a no-huddle offense most of the night. The Bulldogs also went with many different formations and took advantage of the versatility of quarterbacks Jaquez Moore and Tyree Taylor. Moore and Taylor lined up at QB, wide receiver and running back. Moore went 6 of 10 passing for 43 yards to go along with two receptions. Taylor was 3 of 4 for 46 yards. He had four receptions for 32 yards. Moore, Taylor, Carlton Hall (13 rushes, 110 yards, one touchdown) and a strong defensive showing played a big part in the win. A great way to finish up a productive spring, said SHS coach Kyler Hall. Saw some good on offense and defense. There were some struggles we had to fight through; we missed some opportunities to score and had some missed tackles which you expect in the spring. Anytime you go against somebody else you want to win. To hold these guys to seven points is pretty good. The biggest takeaway for Kyler Hall was his teams ability to come back after falling behind. Florida Highs Willie Taggart Jr., who split time at quarterback with Bryson Hill, led the Seminoles down the field in the third quarter for the first points of the game. Taggert ran for 36 yards on the six-minute drive and then capped it off with an 8-yard touchdown pass to give Florida High a 7-0 lead. After that touchdown, Suwannee came right back to tie the game. Taylor got things started with a few nice runs to begin the possession. And then on the first play of the fourth quarter, Hall broke free for a 51-yard touchdown run. Carlton Hall was patient all night. A little crease and he hit it. Hes a very special back, said Kyler Hall. One of the biggest things I saw was after we gave up the touchdown, those guys responded. On the Bulldogs next drive, Taylor connected with the speedy Jaquary Pratt on a 37-yard pass down the left sideline to set up an excellent scoring opportunity. Rising sophomore Ryan LeNeave, a three-sport athlete playing football for the first time, then came on to kick a field goal to give SHS a 10-7 edge. Down by three, the Seminoles were left with one final chance on offense with two minutes remaining. Suave White sealed the game for Suwannee with a tackle along the sidelines on a 4th down play to keep Florida High short of a first down.

Now Oering BOTOX!(386) 362-6556 1-800-829-6506 A person need not be auditioning for the next season of American Idol or e Voice to start belting out a favorite tune. According to the singing advocacy group Chorus America, more than 32 million American adults sing regularly in groups nationwide. Millions of children enjoy music education as part of their school curriculum as well. Although many people may restrict their singing to the shower or when no one is around to hear them, there are some surprising health benets of singing frequently and encouraging others to do so as well. Singing and stressScientists say that singing can have a calming but energizing eect on people. Singing can help tame stress but also li the spirits. Singing is a natural antidepressant. According to information published in Time magazine, singing may release endorphins associated with feelings of pleasure as well as stimulate the release of oxytocin, a hormone that is found to alleviate anxiety and stress. Prevention magazine notes that choir singers, who oen report feeling happy and free of signicant anxiety, may notice their moods improving when they start to sing.Singing and immune system functionSinging can be a form of exercise that works the lungs and other parts of the body required to project ones voice. Singing may lead to a stronger diaphragm and stimulation of circulation due to the greater amount of oxygen needed to carry a tune. Research conducted at the University of Frankfurt found that professional choir members who had their blood tested before and aer an hour-long rehearsal displayed a greater amount of antibodies called immunoglobulin A aer the rehearsal. ese increases were not found in the choir members who simply listened to music. In the study, titled Singing modulates mood, stress, cortisol, cytokine and neuropeptide activity in cancer patients and carers, researchers found higher levels of cytokines present in the blood of those who sung for an hour in a choir, and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol.Singing and snoringSinging may help alleviate snoring. A 2008 study published in the journal Sleep Breath found that the prevalence and severity of snoring among semiprofessional singers and nonsingers indicated that singers scored lower on the snoring scale. Singing strengthens muscles in the airway that can help reduce snoring. Furthermore, the breathing required to sustain a song may help improve lung function and reduce symptoms of mild asthma.Singing and memorySinging may help improve mental alertness by delivering more oxygenated blood to the brain. For those with dementia, singing can improve concentration and memory recollection. e Alzheimers Society has a Singing for the Brain program to help people with dementia maintain their memories.Singing and social connectionsSinging with a group can reduce loneliness by bringing together like-minded people engaged in the same activity.

By K.A. Taylor TV Media For much of the western world, war is either something of the past or something happening far away. Acts of upon. of war to those who will never experience it themselves. Notable small-screen attempts include M*A*S*H and Band of Brothers, but these seldom possess the grit found in big-screen depictions. 2017 saw the exception to this, with the premiere of Historys SIX, which has its season 2 premiere appropriately airing on Monday, May 28: Memorial Day. SIX is a high-intensity, high-stakes drama that takes its inspiration from the real-life SEAL Team Six, a prominent component of the U.S. Armed Forces military division focused on counterterrorism. Each episode delves into the split-second decisions that members of SEAL Team must make, and how those decisions have a lasting effect both for the team members involved and for the surrounding community. Although the team isnt adverse to providing aid if possible, the mission at hand is always top of mind, with the nations security of primary importance. SEAL Team Six is comprised of quite a diverse cast. Barry Sloane (Longmire) is Joe Bear Graves, the teams senior chief special warfare operator. Providing support are Kyle Schmid (Being Human) as Alex Caulder and Juan Pablo Raba (Narcos) as Ricky Buddha Ortiz. Rounding out the cast are Jaylen Moore (Bad Moms, 2016) as Armin Khan and Edwin Hodge (Sleepy Hollow) as Robert Chase III, fellow special warfare operators. After the events of season 1, SEAL Team Six required a new member, found in Eric Ladins (Bosch) role as special warfare operator Season 1 of SIX wasted little time wading into the moral grey zone of war, with senior chief special warfare operator Richard Rip Taggart (Walton Goggins, The Hateful Eight, 2015) quickly reduced to former senior chief special warfare operator after shooting a man who had claimed to have American citizenship. A few years later, while earning a living working in private security at a Nigerian school for girls, Rip was taken hostage, prompting relentless hunt did not go unrewarded, but a betrayal with unease as they desperately longed to know the characters fate. If the trailers and promos are any indication, it does appear that Rip is still alive for now, at least, as he appears The Prince (Nikolai Nikolaeff, Daredevil). The Prince is fully aware of SEAL Teams quest for vengeance, but he will not hold back or compromise on his own personal desires, seemingly fearless in the face of the six. While Trevor may be the latest member of the SEAL team, Laden isnt the only fresh face in season 2. Olivia Munn (Miles from Tomorrowland) plays the role of CIA past with some members of the team. While little is known about Gina pre-premiere, she appears to be a means of communication for the team, able to press captive terrorists into providing the information required to help locate and take down The Prince. Her fearless, determined spirit makes her a formidable ally for the team, but for them to truly succeed together, trust must be established. Much of the shows success thus far stems from its gritty and authentic portrayal of covert military operations, particularly in terms of how the characters battle with their own sense of duty and morality. Rips actions right spot for SIX, Goggins noted that Rips decision to shoot was merely him reacting to the trauma hes been under over the course of his time in the service. Additionally, SIX doesnt shy away from complicating traditional notions of friend and foe. Even those initially seen as villainous can have understandable motives, and for Goggins this is essential. Viewers may have wanted to side with Rip, but Goggins believes that it was as important to him to tell [his captors] story as it was to tell [his own] story. Fleshing out both the terrorists and the SEAL Team members may put some at odds with the show, but such an act holds are often simply a matter of circumstance and perspective. viewers not to forgive the violent actions of others, but to perhaps consider the trauma that may have led to someone committing such acts. The story always keeps SEAL Team Six at the forefront, but in doing so, it also reveals that even the toughest of soldiers battle internal emotions and are weighed down by the endless onslaught of despair, doubt and aggression. Redeeming moments are found when the team can conquer its tasked mission, validating the uncertainty of actions past and promising a more rewarding future. Discover if the team has what it takes to locate and take out The Prince in honor of Rip when SIX returns for its second season on Monday, May 28, on History.
