Peterson, Mayo Joshua A. Singletary, Mayo Keep children safe in cars Car crashes is one of the leading causes of injury and death to young children. Many of these injuries and deaths could be prevented by the correct use of a child safety seat. When used correctly, child safety seats are 71 percent effective in preventing deaths and 67 percent effective in reducing the need for hospitalization. The American Pediatric Association recommends that children ride in a child safety seat until the age of 8, and are 4-foot-9 tall. It is also recommended that children ride in the back seat of the vehi cle until the age of 13. Adults can also set a good example by using their seat belt while riding in a motor vehicle. Child restraint laws in the State of Florida require the use of a crash-tested, federally-approved car seat restraint for children until the age of 6. Using the correct car seat, booster seat, or seat belt appropriate for the childs age, height, and weight can prevent injury or even death. Here are some helpful tips: or when child reaches the upper height or weight limit of the car set (typically around 35-40 pounds). harness until he or she reached the manu facturers upper height or weight limit of the seat (typically 4065 pounds). booster seat: Protect you child with this seat until he or she is at least 4-foot-9 of age). Proper posi tioning of your cars safety belt system is crucial in preventing or minimizing injury in case of a crash, and always buckle up the booster seat even when the child is not riding in the vehicle so that it does not be come a projectile in a crash. lap belt lies across the hips and the shoul der belt across the center of the shoulders and chest. Your childs legs should bend comfortably at the seats edge, with his or her back resting at against the back of the seat. Once the safety belt ts properly without the booster, your child no longer needs a booster seat.

Having enjoyed my 82nd birth day, I am part of a group of about 50 million Americans who are 65 years of age or older. Those who are 90 or older were in school during the 1930s. My age cohort was in school during the 1940s. Baby boomers approaching their 70s were in school during the 1950s and early s. Try this question to any one of those 50 million Americans who are 65 or older: Do you recall any discussions about the need to hire armed guards to protect students and teachers against school shootings? Do you remember school policemen patrolling the hallways? How many students were shot to death during the time you were in school? For me and those other Americans 65 or older, when we were in school, a conversation about hiring armed guards and having police patrol hallways would have been seen as lunacy. There was no reason. Whats the difference between yesteryear and today? The logic of the argument for those calling for stricter gun control laws, in the wake of recent school shootings, is that something has happened to guns. Guns have be haved more poorly and become evil. Guns themselves are the problem. The job for those of us who are 65 or older is to relay the fact that guns were more available and less controlled in years past, when there was far less mayhem. Something else is the problem. Guns havent changed. People have changed. Behav ior that is accepted from todays young people was not accepted yesteryear. For those of us who are 65 or older, assaults on teachers were not routine as they are in some cities. For example, in Baltimore, an average of four teachers and staff members were assaulted each school day in 2010, and more than 300 school staff members led workers compensation claims in a year because of injuries received through assaults or altercations on the job. In Philadelphia, 690 teachers were assaulted in 2010, and in a ve-year period, 4,000 were. In that citys schools, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, on an average day 25 students, teachers, or other staff members were beaten, robbed, sexually assaulted, or victims of other violent crimes. That doesnt even include thousands more who are extorted, threatened, or bullied in a school year. Yale University legal scholar John Lott argues that gun accessibility in our country has never been as restricted as it is now. Lott reports that until the 1960s, New York City public high schools had shooting clubs. Students carried their ries to school on the subway in the morning and then turned them over to their homeroom teacher or a gym teacher and that was mainly to keep them central ly stored and out of the way. Ries were retrieved after school for target practice (http://tinyurl.com/yapuaehp). Virginias rural areas had a long tradition of high school students going hunting in the morning before school, and they sometimes stored their guns in the trunks of their cars during the school day, parked on the school grounds. During earlier periods, people could simply walk into a hardware store and buy a rie. Buying a rie or pistol through a mail-order catalog such as Sears, Roebuck & Co.s was easy. Often, a 12th or 14th birthday Tennessee Williams wrote in The Glass Menagerie that time is the longest distance be tween two places. It was ever so June 5, 1968, in Pierre, South Dakota, for this young wire service reporter covering that states presiden tial primary as the nal results dribbled in and the clock neared midnight central day light time. Two hours behind and 1,500 miles distant in Los Angeles the nation was xated on the uncertain outcome of the California primary, considered a crucial test for New York Sen. Robert F. Kenne dys bid to win the Democratic nomination. In Pierre, the South Dakota capital, myself and two UPI colleagues rushed to le the story on the signicance of Bobby Kennedys upset win against Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey in his native state. Stimulated by the excitement of a national sto ry, and typing to the rat-a-tat-tat rhythm of the 66-word-per-minute teletype machine, it had the feel of an early career dream. A wire message from the home bureau in Chica go need sappest (lingo for as soon as possible) big story in East California results too late SEE CHANGED, PAGE 7A SEE RFKS, PAGE 7A The 11th annual Purple Hatters Ball was able to mainly avoid the rain clouds and give a proper tribute to Rachel Morningstar Hoffman this past weekend at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. This years ball was consolidated to two days of music, and did not include any acts at the beach stage because recent rains have caused the Suwannee River to rise above the safe level for swim ming near the SOS. That is really unfortunate because the beach area has become a favorite part of this festival for many attendees. There was also no ofcial pre-party that had been held in the music hall in years past. One thing that was not missing from this years Pur ple Hatters Ball was the Yoga and Arts Village. After a short wait in line for a wristband on Friday, I headed to the Yoga tent for the Zen Chakra Purication session. I was not sure exactly what a chakra was before the ses sion started, but I gured a little purication never hurt anyone. By the end of the session, we all learned about the various chakras and their function. I found the puri cation to be both relaxing and informative. It was a great way to start the weekend, and just having a few minutes to do some deep breathing and meditation is something I should do more frequently. The crowd in the amphitheater started out small when Hive Mind from Atlanta took the stage Friday afternoon. They played an energetic set that went the speed of reg gae music at times, and went the speed of hard rock at other times. When Southern Avenue took the stage, later in the evening, the crowd was getting a bit larger. I was blown away by the voice of their lead singer. She did an incredible rendition of Use Me, originally by Bill Withers. Southern Avenue did an extended blues version of the song that I will never forget. Late Friday night, when Spafford started to play on the amphitheater stage, the crowd had lled the at portion and started to ll up the sloped portion of the venue. Their music blends rock, funk, jazz, reggae, ska, and electro-pop. Some of their jams sounded like they fused several genres into one. After stopping at two different after parties, I had to get some sleep. There were so many things going on in our area on Saturday. JW Hill held an auction just north of the Busy Bee, the Blueberry Festival was held in Wellborn, and Day 2 of the Purple Hatters Ball was in full swing. The Catsh Alliance treated the crowd to a great rendition of Young Lust by Pink Floyd and were able to nish their set without incident. Ball mainstays Dubconscious were not so lucky. The music was stopped and festival goers were advised to take shelter in the music hall due to a strong storm approaching the area. After the rain and wind passed the area, the festival commenced and Mama Margie gave a short speech and took part in the release of butteries commemorating her daughters life and senseless death. She expressed a de sire to see more people at next years Ball. I share her de sire to not let her daughters tragic story be forgotten, and to not let the festival that honors her go the way of Bear Creek or Aura. I hope the organizers of the event can get the date on the Spirit of the Suwannee calendar earlier this year, and maybe move the date back to its previous location earlier in May. I am not the only one who enjoys a smaller, lower-cost, more laid-back festival. Hopefully, the Ball will return to its former glory next year.

JUNE 6 & 7, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7A Life in White Springs The Town of White Springs has been through many transitions, including cul tural, economic, political, environmental and physical ones. This is to be expected because transitions are a fact of life for any community. The important thing is to realize things are changing and to be pre pared to move on to a new plan. At one time we were one of the top tourist destinations in the State of Flor ida, and trainloads of tourists came to White Springs on a daily basis. Now we have transitioned to a small amount of tourism. At one time we had numerous large hotels with many rooms for lodg ing. Now we have transitioned to one Bed and Breakfast and a few private vacation rental properties. The spring in White Springs was a major attraction then and now it has transitioned to being an often dormant but always historic re minder of days gone by. White Springs was a societal and political powerhouse at the beginning of the twentieth century, now we struggle to curry any political or societal benevolence that we can. At one time White Springs had plenty of money. Now we dont, and funds must be very carefully sought, carefully spent and carefully accounted for. And yet, through all these transitions, we survive, we care, we remain hopeful and some of us are even, dare I say the word, optimistic! White Springs is still one of the jewels of the Suwannee River, perhaps in need of a little polishing in order to shine as bright as it once did, but still a jewel to be treasured and protected and nourished. There are some hopeful signs; some people are doing their part to polish the jewel by becoming involved in a num ber of positive ways, ranging from civic involvement, educational enrichment, to neighborhood outreach. Some folks are opening new businesses, some are volunteering for community programs, and some are sim ply cleaning up their property and being good neighbors. Ive even seen a few folks picking up litter on their daily walks! All these efforts, great and small, show that many people still believe in the power of positive thoughts and actions. There are some folks who can only see the tarnish on our jewel on the Suwannee, but fortunately there are far more folks who are interested in polishing things up and making our town shine brighter than ever. Some of our transitions are personal. I was sad to hear of the recent passing of Ouida Hardwick. I rst became ac quainted with Ouida many years ago when her husband Ralph served with me on the White Springs Town Council. Not content to ride on Ralphs coattails, Oui da got involved with the White Springs Beautication Committee. She was very vocal about what she thought the com mittee should do, a force to be reckoned with! But once the committee made a decision on what to do, whether she got things her way or not, Ouida would be there on the project, digging with shovel in hand, on her hands and knees planting and weeding, coming back for weeks afterward to water and nourish our beau tication efforts. Her yard at home was always spectacular, and in later years, even when she struggled with signi cant health issues, she loved to work in her yard. Just in the past few weeks she would stop by our block to visit and to get cuttings of plants that she admired in our yard and in our neighbors yards. Ouida Hardwick was involved, she was a survivor, and she was a tough one in more ways than one. I know this for certain; She loved Ralph and she loved her town and shell be remembered for the good things that she did for White Springs. Rest in peace Ouida Hardwick! The White Springs Library wants you to know about their SUMMER PRO GRAM 2018. Dont let your kids tell you that they are bored and there is nothing to do.

Locally owned and operated businesses deserve our support and Im happy to say that Black Bay Fresh Florida Seafood is now open in White Springs at 16816 Spring Street (U.S. Highway 41). Black Bay Fresh Florida Seafood intends to provide the Suwannee Valley Region with access to a nutritious and healthy al ternative to processed food. I understand that they will have fresh seafood, some groceries, and also some prepared takeout platters such as shrimp or crab platters. During this startup phase of their oper ation, Im not sure of their hours so call 386-397-2802 to be sure theyre open before you drive over. More information to come soon. Some activities in White Springs go unnoticed by some folks because they are not sufciently publicized. This column has a broader reach than you might think reaching not only White Springs, but also all of Hamilton, Suwannee and Lafayette counties, yet the email box is seldom full and the phone doesnt ring often enough with messages from folks wanting to spread the word about their business, their programs, their yard sale or summer camp or whatever is happening. Whatev er youre doing that you want people to know about, the more you get the word out, the better off youll be! The saying Build it, and they will come is largely wishful thinking. A truer saying would be Publicize it and they will come! This column is here to help spread the word about Life in White Springs, and we hope to hear from you because were 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 contact 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 region is a very special place, to be honored 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.

Gov. Rick Scott announced the award May 30 as part of the Florida Job Growth Grant Fund, a state grant pro gram aimed at developing workforce training and infra structure in Florida communities. Florida Gateway College embraces Governor Scotts support of economic development and job growth oppor tunities in the Lake City, Columbia County area, FGC President Dr. Lawrence Barrett said in a school release. We look forward to working with our industry partners in pursuing this outstanding workforce initiative. Nearly $10 million in grant funds were announced for six projects, including FGCs program. Other projects included programs at Eastern Florida State College, Florida State College at Jacksonville and St. Johns River State College as well as improvements in Baker County and Charlotte County. Floridas economic growth is continuing to outpace the nation because of our nonstop focus on creating jobs in every corner of our state, Scott said. When we created Floridas Job Growth Grant Fund, we knew that this targeted and transparent approach would pay huge dividends for local communities. Im proud to award nearly $10 million more in funding, and look forward to these projects enhancing our ability to meet the growing infrastructure and workforce needs of Floridas booming private sector. HCDA funds student achievement initiatives at schools JENNINGS The Hamilton County De velopment Authority (HCDA) announced the funding of two initiatives focused on school improvement and student achievement in conjunction with the Hamilton County School District. The donations underscore the connection between education, work force training and economic development success in the community. Collaboration among the Hamilton County Development Authority, local employers and our education partners are critical to creating a skilled workforce, said Susan Ramsey, executive director of the HCDA. We hope the additional funding and support to our students will help our lo cal families and talent pipeline. We look for ward to continuing our efforts in the future. The rst donation of $1,000 will establish a new incentive program to reward students for academic success in improving Florida Standardized Assessment (FSA) scores and End of Course (EOC) exams at Hamilton County High School. The program, which will begin in the 2018-2019 school year, will offer students the opportunity to earn small incentives or rewards for achieving set goals. The second donation provides a $500 sponsorship to support the Academic Achievement Success Banquet, which took place this week, and recognizes students who earned honor roll recognition through out the school year. Each student invited, was able to invite two guests to attend. It is an honor to have the support of the Hamilton County Development Authority. As we work together to improve student achievement, we will continue to witness academic and economic growth within our community, said Christopher Combass, a 21-year teaching veteran of Hamilton Coun ty High School where he provides instruc tional support for seventh to 12th grade stu dents. Combass is also the 2017 Hamilton County District Teacher of the Year. rfntffbbfbbfrbbbtb btftrfbtfbrbftttff rbbtnnftbffbfbf rffbftfbtbf present was a shiny new .22-caliber rie, given to a boy by his father. These facts of our histo ry should confront us with a question: With greater accessibility to guns in the past, why wasnt there the kind of violence we see today, when there is much more restricted access to guns? Theres another aspect of our response to mayhem. When a murderer uses a bomb, truck or car to kill people, we dont blame the bomb, truck or car. We dont call for control over the instrument of death. We seem to fully recognize that such objects are inanimate and incapa ble of acting on their own. We blame the perpetrator. However, when the murder is done using a gun, we do call for control over the inanimate instrument of death the gun. I smell a hidden anti-gun agenda. Walter E.

Kennedy nished 20 percentage points ahead of Humphrey, whose ballots were ofcially attributed to President Lyndon Johnson, who surprised the nation earlier by dramatically announcing hed not seek re-election. Humphrey quickly became a candidate but it was too late to reprint the South Dakota ballots. Kennedy also easily defeated the third-place nisher in South Dakota, Sen. Eugene McCarthy, the darling of the partys left who had long opposed Johnsons war policies. Humphrey was born on the South Dakota prairie, the son of a pharmacist. His political career, how ever, blossomed in Minne sota, where he helped birth the Democratic Farm Labor Party and thrice won elec tion to the U.S. Senate. His South Dakota roots were expected to give him the edge over Kennedy and McCarthy. But Humphrey was also viewed as a John son loyalist to the unpopu lar Vietnam War, and Ken nedy promised to end U.S. involvement in the war. Wrapping up the Kenne dy victory stories shortly after 1 a.m. CDT and get ting kudos from Chicago on the promptness of our stories, the UPI election crew drove across the Mis souri River to Fort Pierre for a nightcap. Fort Pierre was an hour behind Pierre, meaning the bars there were open for another hour. Arriving as the bartender announced last call, we ordered up and lingered at the bar, watching the CBS report of Kennedys California election victory speech at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. But soon the networks reporting took a dreadful turn shots red in the hotels kitchen had se riously wounded Bobby Kennedy. He died several hours later. Memories are naturally foggy after 50 years, but I recall the bartender turning up the TVs volume, and expressions of disbelief such as God, not again dominating the conver sation. Was it really happening? Another assassination at tempt nearly ve years af ter President John Kenne dy, Bobbys older brother, died from a snipers bullet to the head in Dallas? And two months after the assas sination of Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis? It was yet another dark day in America. Abruptly, the outcome of the South Dakota primary became an asterisk in po litical history instantly lost in time as the longest distance between two places.

JUNE 6 & 7, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A Healthy Living Self-care is not selsh An empty lantern provides no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly. Unknown Lately, my get up and go seems to have got up and went. Cant nd it any where either. Have you felt like this? That feeling that if one more thing is added to the LONG list of things you have to get done in a day, youre going to explode. Have you ever noticed that what you need to hear shows up in your life at the exact time you need to hear it? This past week, while listening to my morn ing podcasts on the way to and from the gym, what do you think the topic is in both of them? Making the time to take care of ourselves and self-care is not selsh. Hmm. Think someone was try ing to give me a message? Possibly this message is for you too. Women especially tend to put selfcare to the bottom of the list. We are nurturers. We want our families to be happy. We want our friends to be hap py. We want work to be happy. We want everyone to be happy, but neglect our selves. Its time to x this. Self-care is as important as taking the kids to dance class. Its as important as making sure the spouse and kids are happy and healthy. So why do we feel selsh when we take a few moments to take care of ourselves? The denition of selsh is: Lacking consideration for others; concerned chiey with ones own per sonal prot or pleasure. The denition of self-care is: Broad term that encompasses just about anything you do to be good to yourself. Self-care is ANYTHING you do to be good to yourself. For most of though, self-care is an afterthought until we are completely burned out, stressed and exhausted. When you reach that point, there is a good chance you will become ill or choose other methods of self-med icating to get through the day neither of which are good. So why is it so hard to take time a few days each week to take care of ourselves when we know how much it will benet not only ourselves but our families? The most common answer is lack of time. There is a TV commercial I recent ly watched where a woman ran out of contact lenses and couldnt nd the time to replace them. After all according to her planner, her dog needed to go to the doggie masseuse at 4:30 (or whatever she said). She couldnt possibly cancel that appointment could she? And right there is the answer to the problem. We are so over-scheduled from the moment we open our eyes to the time we collapse in bed each night. Yet, the benets to self-care include better productivity and having more to give. Do you see the big picture now? Taking care of ourselves allows us to take better care of everyone we love. Its time to sit down and take a good long look at the schedule you are not only holding yourself to, but your fam ily as well. Ask the kids if they want to be involved in three activities or would they like to focus on one? Ask your spouse where they can help you so that you can squeeze in a 30-minute walk. Ask your your mom or friend to watch the kids once a week so you can do something for yourself. Some things you will never take off your schedule like church, work and school. But I guarantee there are at least three things you can remove from your weekly schedule that will give you three 30-minute blocks of time to take care of yourself. Also dont forget that 2 letter word no. While working on blocking out time for yourself, dont agree to take on any thing else. Your family will thank you. Trust me on this. Have a great week!

Mark Twain once said, Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow. Im pretty sure he had going to the dentist, balancing his checkbook, or maybe starting a new diet in mind. All of these seem like really good ideas-to do tomorrow. Dened as the habitual and intentional act of delaying doing or completing a responsibility, procras tination has been called opportunitys assassin. If we are honest, most of us recognize it as a bad habit that adds un necessary stress to our lives. One of the earliest recorded occur rences of procrastination in the Bible is in the book of Exodus. Moses is having yet another meeting with Egypts Pha raoh about letting Gods people go and has the added leverage of the plague of frogs for motivation, in Exodus 8:9-10. He tells Pharaoh, I leave to you the honor of setting the time for me to pray for you and your ofcials and your peo ple that you and your houses may be rid of the frogs Pharaohs answer? To morrow. No rhyme or reason to that, unless he had a plan for frog legs for supper and lots of them. Why else would you keep a house full of frogs around longer than absolutely necessary? Pro crastination lets just not deal with it today. In all seriousness, procrastination is one of the most effective weapons against experiencing success and living as an overcomer of our struggles. It harms us by making sure that opportuni ties on the job and involving our educa tion are lost because we miss deadlines and are labeled as undependable. Un nished projects, broken promises and lack of growth result in seriously dam aged relationships. Procrastination even takes a toll on our health: ignore that symptom or avoid a check-up long enough and there could be trouble. What are you putting off, and what could it possibly cost you? Proverbs 27:1 brings a healthy perspective: Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. When we procrastinate, we are boast ing that we have the right to a tomor row, and in reality there is no guarantee. Procrastination always nds an excuse not to deal with things that are causing harm today. Problem is, the longer we leave it, the more damage it will cause. Last, but not least, we are developing a bad habit that can become a way of life. Hebrews 3:7-8 gives us the cure: Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts Hear in this passage implies more than just listening. It means to attend to; to consider what is or has been said. Harden in the origi nal Greek actually translates to become stubborn. In other words, the longer we procrastinate, the more stubborn we become. Lets not put off till tomorrow what really needs to be tended to today, for there is much to lose and our hearts really do matter.

Heart Matters Stop being stubborn, avoid procrasti nating Around the Banks The importance of reading Suwannee Countys own Eric Mus grove, who, in my opinion, adds so much each week to the Suwannee Democrat with his articles about local history was my next door neighbor this past Sunday over in Lake City at the Public Library downtown. The Lake City Public Library held a gathering of local authors. They did a great job with their organization, had a good many authors present, the room was very comfortable, and they were gracious enough to provide refreshments. The event was held from 2 p.m. till 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon which is nap time for a lot of people, but it was a pleasant event. My neighbor on the other side was a former student, Shan tina Wilson, who grew up in White Springs, and she has written six books. I am so proud of her. I knew I was in friendly and rarified company. I wish we all had been given maybe 10 minutes to discuss our books and tell a little about them, since there were not a lot of potential buyers. I was impressed, though, by the broad scope of subject matters about which local authors had written, everything from addictions to some great poetry, to some narratives about personal trag edy. If I am going to participate in some thing, I try very hard to make up my mind that I am going to have a good time. I mean its really up to you. You can make up your mind to enjoy your self or not, and if you dont, people truly dont care. No one really enjoys seeing someone with a countenance or an expression, though, looking like theyve been weaned on a dill pickle. Its an unfortunate expression even if you are blessed with physical beauty. I will state this to folks, though, and like it, not like it, take it or not take it, its up to you. If you want to achieve an education you have to learn to read, and you have to be a good reader. The Class of 2018 is not in competition with those who live within a hundred mile radius. They are in competition with folks from around the world. I have noted this. Many of our high school graduates whose par ents are foreign born and are first-gen eration Americans are working, in many cases, harder, to succeed, and they are succeeding. I am not going to name the family, as many of my readers would recog nize them, but I will write of a family who are friends of mine, first gen eration Americans, one is the owner of one of the largest real estate and appraisal firms in Dade County, Flor ida. One is a medical doctor in Texas. One helps her husband operate one of the largest health insurance companies named one of the five fast growing companies in the state of Florida. Their parents came to this country with very little, but through hard work, dedica tion, and determination, they have done well. It is possible. I encourage parents to read to their children and encourage their children to read to them. Turn the computers off, turn the TV off and have some time when you read. Working at the public library, I see many children who come to the library, and many children sit at computers for hours and play video games that are anything but peaceful in nature. Their parents dont have a clue what they are playing, since they are not present. Success means getting to work 15 minutes early or earlier, and it means taking the blame for your mistakes, and it means encouraging those who work with you and giving credit where credit is due. It means admitting when you dont know something and not being ashamed, and, parents, if you are going to send your child to a program teach them, please, that manners do take one a long way. Saying thank you, please, I appreciate that, May I help you; these mean a great deal. And high school seniors, how about writing, absolutely writing a legible thank you note expressing your appreciation, and do try and be more original in writing than expressing: Dear Aunt Trudy, The shirt you gave me was nice. I liked it. Thanks again. With sincere appreciation, Johnny Although this note in comparison to some I have received is well written, and gift recipient, high school senior, do try and write in cursive if you can, and its sad to think many high school seniors cant write in cursive. Taking pen in hand and using your brain to or ganize the expression of your appreci ation states to the person kind enough to gift you with something that you appreciated something, and apprecia tion is always appreciated. I wish all of our recent high school graduates Best Wishes and Congrat ulations and remember if you choose something you love doing in life, you will never work a day in your life; whether its cooking, welding, plumbing, being a mechanic, it doesnt matter. A college education doesnt necessarily insure anyone success, but no education is going to cause you to have a bad time, and dear friends and gentle hearts, I am afraid, the days of many entitlements are soon going to be thing of the past, so be able to do something to take care of yourself. You are special and wonderful, and so is the next person in line. The world doesnt owe you a thing but an oppor tunity. Remember that, and remember God is First and In Charge, let Him know you know He is and thank Him once in a while. Just like those folks who give you a gift for graduation, He gave you everything you have. Now how did I get from the authors fair to the rest of this article, I dont have a clue, but I will tell you in my lifetime, and I am not great at it, but I have enjoyed writing as much as anything, it brings me joy, and I hope it encourages other, and the little bit of musical talent with singing makes me feel closer to the Almighty when I sing so that cant be a bad thing. Singing with my brother, our friend, Kerry Waldron and writing this article and the few little books I have written have brought me a lot of joy, and we all need more of that in the world. My prayers are with each of you and, again, all my BEST Wishes!!! Commencement means a beginning, and in the words of an old song Weve only just begun. From the Eight Mile Still on the Woodpecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day filled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter.

Really, just $15.00* will get your 4.5 service/business ad in three local newspapers each week in our to get started!!!!! 91767-1 State & Region tom.lynn@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. Death. Talking about it can be uncomfortable. For some families, the topic is taboo. While planning for your funeral may seem morbid, more people see it as a way to nd their own peace of mind, and someday make the loss a little easier for their families. Some begin planning ahead when they face an illness expected to be fatal. For oth ers, the death of a close friend or relative or a terrorist attack somewhere in the world can be the thing that leads them to consider their mortality, how they would like to be remembered and what arrangements need to be made. People who plan ahead make it much eas ier for survivors, said Peggi Shipman, a mar keting representative for Cincinnati Equitable Life Insurance Company, based in Valdosta, whose products include insurance to cover nal expenses. A funeral is a huge (event), and some times you have less than 48 hours to plan and its the worst time in peoples lives, she said. Across the SunLight Project coverage area Valdosta, Moultrie, Thomasville, Milledgeville and Dalton, Ga., along with Live Oak, Jasper and Mayo, Fla. there are a wide variety of businesses available to help people prepare for their or a loved ones death. Funeral directors across the region agree that planning ahead can save money, time and heartache. Although, most people strug gle to accept the fact they will one day die, let alone talk about the terms and agreements on what to do after they die. The inability to face the inevitability of death can make a tense situation even worse. Death means different things to different people but whether preplanned or handled by family after death occurs, it is among other things a business transaction. Funerals are not cheap. Cofns can cost anywhere from $500 to more than $5,000. That cost doesnt include a vault, which is a bit like a cofn for the cofn. Some cemeteries require vaults. And vaults can cost an additional $1,000 or more. Funeral homes offer several services, such as embalming, body preparations, transfer ring the deceased and many options that can bump up the price. Like anything else, people plan for a fu neral in their own way. Some enter a funeral home knowing exactly what they want, while others must wade through the numerous choices. If I meet with a couple, I like to com mend them for coming in, Shipman said. It might take them six months. Theres not a funeral home I wouldnt recommend. Theyre going to sit down and talk with you and help you in what you need. For some, the process begins with just dropping by to chat, said Gayla Cobb of Cobb Funeral Chapel in Moultrie. Having been in the business for a long time, there are few people in the community she and her husband, Bobby, dont know. Sometimes, it may take a few visits for someone to feel comfortable talking about their own death or the death of a loved one, long before it happens. During the process biographical infor mation is taken, Cobb said. The person can make anything from a broad outline of what is desired to a plan that is complete in every detail. Throughout the process she takes notes that are kept in reproof storage, she said. We just walk through it step by step, Cobb said. We listen so we know what people want. We advise people about whats available, then let them make their deci sions. Cobb also advises people to have a will and durable power of attorney to ensure oth er legal details are covered. Deciding the details down to music, pall bearers, minister and nal outt can give peace of mind to the person planning for the inevitable, as well as remove his or her sur vivors from the trauma of having to make all those decisions in a couple of days following death. rfntbtt rfrntbbf A funeral isnt a day in the life, its a life time in a day, Shipman said. Payment Plans Once plans are made, the next question is how to pay. AARP estimates the average burial and services cost about $8,500, Shipman said. Casey Music, director of Music Funeral Services in Valdosta, said the numbers can be deceiving. If you read the ne print, it says this does not include cash advance items and the out-of-burial container, Music said. Well, when you add those two things in there, youre at 10 to $11,000. They lead you to be lieve its $7,000. Some funeral homes leave out digging and lling the grave, because they dont do that. The family will still have to pay for it, though. Unless a family decides to cremate to save money. A cremation-only package at Cobb Fu neral Chapel includes an urn and is about rrbrtrbrbfrfrbbrb brfftbrbbbntrfftbnrf SEE THE COST, PAGE 11A

JUNE 6 & 7, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 11A State & Region $2,400, Cobb said, while a cremation with visitation and a funeral service can cost about $3,500 or $4,000. At Music Funeral Services, the least ex pensive cremation option available can cost a family about $1,500. This is our inexpensive web-based ser vice, which gets rid of everything our family is known for, Music said. Theres no personable service. We take the body and cremate. For our other services, we roll out the red carpet, where everything we have is at your service. Family preference and the familys means often determine the size of a funeral. The largest funeral Music has organized was for a former Georgia state representative. Music said thousands of people attended his funeral, including high-level state ofcials. He said funerals are about logistics, and when that many people gather together, the problems stack up quickly. Logistically, you have to have one person in charge and that person has to be the funer al director, Music said. More people means we have to have more staff on hand, and we have to have people where we want them. With so many people in attendance, the fo cus can drift away from the deceased. Music said a key part of the job is keeping the focus on the loved one and having the ceremony remain a reection of the persons life. What did they love? What were they pas sionate about? Music said. Weve parked race cars in the front yard. Weve put motor cycles in our chapel, decorated entire rooms with deer heads, shing poles, guns. So, when people walk in, they know immediate ly who this person was. He said it can be the little thing that friends and family say goodbye to loved ones. Taking the Time Music offers packages with no additional services provided, but he said it makes him sad when people dont take the time to offer proper respects. People are too busy, he said. We cant pause our lives to pay tribute to someone that has been a part of us, Mu sic said. I think its important to show the community and our family how important a person was to us. That we cared about that person. That they meant something to us. Music said he recognizes that not everyone can pay for all the pomp and circumstance of a state representative, but when people dont properly prepare for their funeral service, they are limited in what they and their family can do to remember a loved one. He advised everyone, no matter age or nancial circumstance, to at least discuss the possibilities with family members. He said funeral homes are happy to sit down and talk about available options. Youre not doing it for you, he said. Your family deserves a proper way of saying goodbye. It helps with the grieving process. How to Pay for Goodbye Dan Peeples, vice president of Julian Peeples Funeral Homes in Dalton, said it is becoming more common for people to plan ahead and pay in advance for their own fu nerals. Its usually after they have had a death in the family, he said. At those times, they see the emotions involved, maybe how ex hausted they were after visiting the hospital for several days prior to the death and think about how difcult it can be to make import ant decisions during a time of loss. Then they come to the funeral home, and the average packet that my dad and I have the families ll out, theres about 75 ques tions, Peeples said. After they have been through that, they say I ought to go ahead and do this because I dont want it to be so hard on my kids or my spouse. We do it all the time. Its a smart thing to do. He said they work to help come up with a payment method when a family signs the funeral contract. Cash, check, credit card. Well take an assignment on the life insurance, Peeples said. Thats a letter the family sends to the insurance company telling it to send us a cer tain amount of money and to send the bene ciaries the rest. It can be tricky when none of those four things is an option, and the family says they would like to make payments. We always ask How would you like to take care of this today? Julian Peeples said. We ask the family How much do you think you can come up with in the next cou ple of days? said Dan Peeples. When they Continued From Page 9A give you an amount, we might discount a few things, give a few things for free. But we try to provide a service for that amount. That may mean just meeting us at the cemetery for a graveside service only, something like that. Julian Peeples said the price of a funeral doubles about every 20 years. He said its largely due to the rising costs of caskets and vaults. It seems like we get a letter every year, usually about January (from manufacturers) saying that their prices are going up because the price of metal keeps going up, Dan Peeples said. The family usually pays the people who dig the graves directly. But if we are going to take an assignment on life insur ance, if the family is short of cash, we will pay that and put it on the funeral bill and the insurance company will reimburse us. Grave Concerns On a recent hot and humid morning in Thomasville, Victor Christian and his uncle, Walter Christian, were digging a grave at Laurel Hill Cemetery. Victor Christian, owner of L&V Vault Company, said his Dixie-based business digs 300-350 graves annually in South Georgia and North Florida. Were getting to almost one a day, said Victor Christian. He said he bills funeral homes at a whole sale price, charging up to $700 per grave. Christian said he doesnt nd his work depressing. You get a good feeling knowing youre giving someones loved one a proper burial, he said. Laurel Hill Cemetery is a City of Thom asville property. A lot with four graves costs $800, and a single grave spot is $250. Too much family, not enough Dan Peeples said the funeral business is an interesting job. Obviously, people are very emotional, he said. You add to that family members are getting together who maybe havent seen each other in a long time or who dont get along. He said it isnt uncommon for people to tell him there are certain family members they dont want to be there. He said he has seen ghts when some family members get together. Thats always tough, he said. Then there are situations when the de ceased doesnt have family. Peeples said the Whiteld County govern ment reimburses them about $450 for indi gent burials, which will buy the minimum casket. Everything else, the funeral home does for free, he said. That includes removing the body, which could be as far away as hospitals in Chatta nooga and Atlanta, bringing the body back and dressing it, then meeting the family, if there is any, at the cemetery for a graveside service, he said. Don Shiver, Thomas County coroner and owner of Whiddon-Shiver Funeral Home in Thomasville, said since assuming coroner duties about a year and a half ago, he has handled one unclaimed body. The man died at Archbold Memorial Hos pital in Thomasville. He had no family, no connections, Shiv er said. The body was cremated. County govern ment paid the cremation bill. The remains are kept at the coroners ofce. At his funeral home, cremations begin at $1,800 and go as high as $7,000. Recently, Shiver said, families have re quested traditional funerals, but instead of burying the deceased, the body is cremated. Claustrophobia is why a lot of people choose cremation, Shiver said. Flexibility is another reason: A body can be cremated to He has buried people with their favorite beverage, guitars, shing poles, photos and cremated animals, but never with an animal corpse. Building Relationships Funerals are about relationships. Thats why funeral directors say nice buildings, polished cars, men in dark suits and all the other surroundings are important. These traditions and ornamentations exist because losing a loved one is one of the most difcult experiences of a persons life. J. Britt McLane, funeral director of Carson McLane Funeral Home, explained why those things matter. Things that are difcult, or even debilitat ing, to individuals, when you wrap those tran sitions in ceremony and allow others inside to support you, then that helps them get through that time, McLane said. Were social crea tures. Having that support lets us know were not alone and helps us move on. McLane has been in the funeral business since he was a kid cutting weeds at the his familys funeral home on Patterson Street. He has been the funeral director for 25 years. In that time, he has learned the body of a loved one is precious and priceless. Several years ago, McLane recalled, there were some friends who were lost at sea. A storm occurred. They were lost and never found, he said. Now, that is a heart breaking situation on many levels, but the thing that is true is that if any of their loved ones could have paid money to get those bod ies back, they would have. The loss of those bodies was devastating. McLane said funeral homes realize the im portance of seeing a loved ones body, bring ing closure. That closure, like everything else in life and death, comes with a price tag. Funeral homes are in the business of help ing people say their nal farewells to loved ones. Charging for the services can seem callous to some, but McLane made it clear he nds a way to work with everyone who comes through the doors. We work with every family to try to get the services affordable for them and that meet their needs, he said. Those are two separate but related issues. One of the issues with funerals is people dont decide when to have them. If someone wants to buy a car, they can save up their money for a few years and decide when the best time to pay for one is. A funeral can and does happen when people least expect it, McLane said. Funerals come when they come. They come when someone dies, and we dont have control over that, he said. Funerals, like everything else, cost money. And there can be a big disconnect between what a person may need, as far as closure, and what they can afford. McLane said the best way to avoid these situations is for families to discuss ahead of time what they want before a loved one dies. day, and the funeral can be conducted weeks later. The cost of a traditional funeral at Whid don-Shiver averages $8,500. The funeral home offers pre-arranged funerals, memorial videos and live-streamed services. Shiver said a number of people pay ahead for funerals. The business employs someone whose duty is handling pre-ar ranged funerals. Whiddon-Shiver offers burial insurance. Otherwise, the family must bear the costs. Shiver said when he bought the funeral home 23 years ago, the average cost of a tra ditional funeral was about $5,000. Funeral homes pay grave diggers and are reimbursed by families. Ive had people who want their legs crossed, Shiver said, in reference to unusual requests. Deciding what the family wants Daniels Funeral Homes & Crematory has served the Live Oak and Branford area since 1961. They offer numerous options for burial and cremation. Jordan Daniels said as a funeral director, he helps families decide what they want. He said everyone grieves differently. We want to make sure everyone has the chance to grieve in the way they need to, Daniels said. Families can plan ahead for their funeral. They can decide what they want for their funeral. It will then be led with Daniels Fu neral Home until needed. While people can also pre-pay for the fu neral, it is not necessary to plan ahead. Dan iels said with a pre-planned funeral, there is a burden lifted from the family. It is a hard time and the easier it can be, the better, Daniels said. There are various options available for people to lessen the cost of putting someone to rest. Basic services of funeral director and staff are about $2,310. Cofns can run any where from $500 to $5,000 with cremation being the absolute cheapest option. Embalming will cost $750, but families have the option of not embalming. The choosing not to embalm may prevent view ing the body. The list of options is long and is why fam ilies should have discussions before it is too late, he said. Trying to guess what a family member may have wanted for a funeral can add to tensions at an already difcult time. It could also be the reason many people opt for the cheapest and quickest options, and why there are a wide variety of funeral homes offering cheaper options. Providing more options After 20 years in the funeral service busi ness, Donald Butts knows the ins and outs of the industry better than most. While watching the cost of funerals steadi ly rise, Butts said charges can be high even for a simple wooden casket. In his time working for funeral homes around Middle Georgia, where he served in a variety of different roles, Butts helped families shoulder the multi-thousand dollar burdens of properly laying their loved ones to rest. In my experience in funeral homes, the family does come out with a burden on them in terms of caskets, Butts said. Some go over their (nancial) limits to make sure their loved one is put away because they feel like they have no other choice. Earlier in the year, Butts and his three adult children opened LSC Caskets, a purveyor of caskets, urns and oral arrangements, in Milledgeville. LSC thrives on serving people looking to cut costs of interment, Butts said. In order to maintain a business and ensure that youre able to make ends meet, some times you have to raise your prices, said Laticia Butts, Donald Butts daughter and LSC co-owner. Funeral service is not a set price for them, and funeral homes have ex ibility in setting that price. If I go out and purchase new limos, I have to purchase those items, and given the current economy, homes have been raising their prices in order to stay in business. Between embalming and digging graves for bodies, hosting visitation services for loved ones, and catering to requests from the deceaseds family, funeral homes offer a va riety of services that can drive up the price of the funeral process. Currently, an average funeral in Middle Georgia might cost about $8,000-$10,000, not including things such as catered meals, music and oral arrangements. Donald Butts estimates the gure to be thousands of dollars greater than it was 25 years ago and said some homes refer families to collection agencies for unpaid bills. The Butts said they have seen an increase in both planning funerals in advance and choosing cremation, less than half the price of a traditional funeral in many cases, versus rfntbnnfnnnt rfr ntbfbnrr nrr rnbn rnn SEE THE COST, PAGE 14A

Southland Wood, of Moultrie Georgia, will de velop a wood processing facility creating 45 new jobs with a projected capital in vestment of $7 million. The project is expected to create 75 new jobs at completion. This is another momen tous project win for Ham ilton County, said Susan Ramsey, executive director of the HCDA. Our focus is to continue to bring mean ingful industry and employ ment to Hamilton County and this project highlights our logistical strengths and business-friendly environ ment. The site, the bottom-line advantages and the team all made Hamilton County the ideal location for expan sion of our business, said Lucius Moore, President of Southland Wood. We are thankful for the support of the HCDA and we are look ing forward to our continued success in the community. Southland Wood Recy cling considered locations throughout North Florida and Southeast Georgia but selected Hamilton County because of its location, ag gressive economic develop ment team and the countys commitment to job creation.

95440-1 95159-1 State & Region physical interment. Because funeral homes cant legally refuse to bury a casket that has been provided by the family, LSC has a market for people looking to save money on funerals. We sell our most basic caskets for roughly $800 and they range all the way up to eight or $10,000, Donald Butts said. At funeral homes, their basic caskets usually start at a little under $2,000, Laticia Butts said. Our prices are much more afford able, and we try not to go above eight or $900 to keep families from having to spend all that Continued From Page 11A money on a casket. But those options arent for everyone. For many, having one funeral home pro vide complete services, taking care of all the arrangements, is exactly what they need at that point in their lives when grieving over the loss of a loved one. In Tifton, William Bowen is a fourth-gen eration owner of Bowen-Donaldson Home for Funerals. He and his family have been providing services for the Tift County area for de cades, and he has seen how the industry has changed. This industry does not change dramatical ly, he said. For the most part, its the same thing, the same service for families that we provided for their parents and their grandpar ents. There has been a change in technology, such as funeral homes having more of an on line presence and using memorial slide shows or video presentation during services. Brenda Shaw-Saunders, ofce manager and Suzanne Myers, aftercare coordinator, said there are new and different ways to remember and honor loved ones who have passed. Shaw-Sanders pointed out thumbprint jew elry, which she said is a recent addition, and Myers talked about making clothing belong ing to a deceased loved one into pillows and stuffed animals as another service offered. They have also noticed a difference in the music choices. It used to be traditional music, Shaw-Sanders said. Now they will request music that the person liked, (and) play CDs.

JUNE 6 & 7, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7B Wireless technology takes hearing aids to new levels Hearing loss may not be something people want to contemplate, but it is more common than many people may think. Hearing decits may occur from birth or be acquired due to injury or prolonged exposure to loud noises. e National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders says approximately 15 percent of American adults (37.5 million people) aged 18 and older report some trouble hearing. Age is the strongest contributor to hearing loss, with people age 60 and older with the highest levels of impairment. People with hearing decits can access a growing number of assistance devices which make their lives easier: from telephones and doorbells that trigger a blinking light rather than a bell; to closed captioning and voice-to-text conversion; to a greater understanding and widespread usage of sign language. e deaf and hearing impaired have many options which help them overcome hearing loss. As technology advances, so also, do the options for the hearing impaired. One innovative piece of gadgetry is sophisticated wireless hearing aids that are compatible with personal electronic devices. anks to Bluetooth technology, hearing aid manufacturers are harnessing this science to expand the abilities of hearing aids and to develop new products. In the past, in order to use an MP3 player or mobile phone, a person would need to remove traditional hearing aids to accommodate a pair of earbuds. Furthermore, hearing aids may have had their limitations in ltering ambient noise. Although Bluetooth-powered hearing devices are still in their infancy, Oticon, a global hearing technology company, has developed their own communication and entertainment solution called ConnectLine that enables people to connect hearing aids with dierent devices. is transforms hearing aids into a personal wireless headset for listening to music, watching television or video chatting. Many other companies, such as ReSound and Starkey, also oer Bluetooth-enabled devices. eir devices may be compatible with Android and iPhone models, some of which may only require an app or direct connectivity to the device. In fact, Apple has patented a specic Bluetooth connectivity with certain hearing aid manufacturers. Others may require an accessory of some sort to make connections possible, especially when pairing with a TV or other audio device. anks to cutting edge technology, assistive listening devices have improved considerably. Individuals should speak with their hearing care professionals about their daily needs concerning hearing aids and explore the options in wireless hearing aid technology that can work seamlessly with their devices.
