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.

The United States is not playing in this years World Cup. They were eliminated after a stunning loss to Trinidad and Tobago back in a qual ifying game in October. The World Cup must go on, and it has, without the United States. Many Americans are now rooting for our neighbors to the south, Mexico. Even more fans are jumping on the Mexican bandwagon after their upset victory against defending champion Ger many. Here locally, I have watched a game on the outside patio of Armandos Restaurant and I watched Mexicos victory against South Korea at Beef O Bradys this past Saturday. It is safe to say we do not have very many soccer fans here in the greater Live Oak area. For long stretches of both games, I was the only one watching the games. I dont understand why more folks just arent very interested in watching the best ath letes compete in the most watched athletic competition in the world. One of my favorite things about watching the World Cup games on TV is the absence of commer cial breaks. The only commercials breaks are before the game, during halftime, and after the game is over. I wish American football would do something similar. When I arrived at Beef O Bradys at 11 a.m. Sat urday, they were just getting set up for business. They were unaware of the World Cup match that was about to begin, but they were very accommodating and found the game on the Fox Sports Network. The game was a fun one to watch, and luckily we do not have a local beer shortage like the ones that have plagued bars and restau rants in Moscow. Both teams had chances to score early on, but Mexico scored the rst goal of the match after a Korean player received a handball penalty inside the goalie box. Carlos Vela scored on the penalty kick in the 26th minute. Mexico went on to win the game 2. Carlos Vela plays for the Los Angeles Football Club when he is not playing on the Mexican National team. He has received quite a bit of criticism for stating that he would rather watch basketball than soccer, but I completely understand how he feels. If the choice were between an NBA playoff game or a World Cup game, I would also pick the basketball game. Since there are not any important basketball games on TV right now, I will gladly watch some World Cup action. Dont worry if you have missed the World Cup games that have already been played. There will be plenty more to come. The round of 16 games wont start until this Saturday, the 30th of June. The game that deter mines the World Cup champion will be played July 15 at 11 a.m. You might see me watching a game some where rooting for Mexico and dreaming about next years basketball season.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf A World Cup without U.S. My column a fortnight ago, titled Diversity and Inclusion Harm, focused on the dumbing down of science, technology, engineer ing and mathematics curricula to achieve a more pleasing mixture of participants in terms of race and sex. Heather Mac Donald, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, wrote about this in her article titled How Identity Politics Is Harming the Sciences (http://tinyurl.com/ y9g8k9ne). Mac Donald quoted a UCLA scientist who said, All across the country the big question now in STEM is: how can we promote more women and minorities by changing (i.e., lowering) the requirements we had previously set for graduate level study? The National Science Foundation and the Na tional Institutes of Health are two federal agencies that fund university research, are consumed by diversity and inclusion ideology, and have the power to yank funds from a college if it has not supported a sufcient number of underrepresented minorities. In recent years, the Federal Aviation Administration has also become consumed by diversity and inclusion. Prior to becoming so, the FAA worked with about 36 colleges to create the Air Trafc Collegiate Training Ini tiative. The colleges offered twoand four-year non-en gineering aviation degrees requiring basic courses in air trafc control and aviation administration. Graduates of these programs became qualied candidates for training as air trafc control specialists. The FAA gave hiring preferences to veterans, those with AT-CTI program de grees, references from administrators and high test scores. In 2013, President Obama-appointed FAA Adminis trator Michael Huerta deemed that these hiring standards had not produced a pleasing mix of air trafc controllers when it came to race and sex. He announced plans to transform the (FAA) into a more diverse and inclusive workplace that reects, understands, and relates to the diverse customers it serves. The FAA discarded its longtime use of the difcult cognitive assessment test and implemented instead a new, unmonitored take-home per sonality test a biographical questionnaire. Among the questions asked are: The number of high school sports I participated in was... How would you describe your ideal job? What has been the major cause of your fail ures? More classmates would remember me as humble or dominant? In other words, the FAA opened air trafc control training to off-the-street hires any English-speaking citizen with a high school diploma despite the fact that most high school diplomas are fraudulent documents. All air trafc control applicants are required to complete the biographical questionnaire. Those who pass are deemed eligible. The questionnaire gives more points to an ap plicant who answers that he has not been employed in the previous three years than it does to an applicant who answers that he has been a pilot or is a veteran with an air trafc control-related military background. Michael Pearson, an air trafc controller for 27 years who is suing the FAA, said, A group within the FAA, including the human resources function within the FAA the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Em ployees determined that the workforce was too white. In an act of cowardice, a Republican-controlled Congress during President Obamas second term cut a deal allow ing the FAA to hire half of new controllers based on race. Led by its president, William Perry Pendley, the Moun tain States Legal Foundation has brought a discrimination suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in behalf of Andrew J. Brigida against U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao although, when this suit began, Anthony Foxx was the secretary of transportation. (When Chao became the secretary, she was automatically substituted as the defendant.) All Americans should hope that the Mountain States Legal Foundation suit is successful in preventing the FAA from using race and sex as criteria for hiring. Pas sengers lives, regardless of sex and race, depend upon there being procient air trafc controllers. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

As promised in April, we want to regularly hear what people have to say regarding issues and politics. The Suwannee Democrat, Jasper News and Mayo Free Press are participating in a local, regional and nationwide project called Pulse of the Voters. The project includes more than 100 CNHI papers from across the nation. Four times a year, through the 2020 pres idential election, Pulse of the Voters will feature what you, your neighbors and people representing areas throughout the region and nation are thinking regarding various issues. In the 2016 presidential election, we got it wrong. While the media predicted Hillary Clinton would be the next president, the nation elected Donald Trump president. If were doing it right, Pulse of the Voters shouldnt be about what we think, it should be about what you think. We talked to a lot of people. Some wanted to share their points of view with the public, while others did not. What we continue learning with this project is people are passionate. We learned there is definitely a political divide across the nation, but then again that was already pretty obvious. Wasnt it? We worked hard to talk to people whose views landed all across the political spectrum, viz. Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, independents and also those who are largely apolitical. We think regularly checking the pulse is a wise and healthy thing to do. We will do it again in the weeks leading to midterm elections. Maybe your voice will be included in the next Pulse of the Voters.

JUNE 27 & 28, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7A Life in White Springs There are many transformational expe riences in all of our lives; things that hap pen that mark a new beginning or a new perspective that changes us into someone better or worse. The ones we tend to hear about are the positive transformations and many of them happen right here in White Springs. My wife Merri had a transformational experience the rst time she came to White Springs in the 1970s to apply for a job of Artist in Residence with the Stephen Foster Park. She said that as she crossed the Suwannee River coming into White Springs she knew that this was home, that she was no longer a Tallahassee gal, that she had found her true home. Now that was quite a trans formation, and it stuck! I remember going to my rst Shrimp Festival in Fernandina in the 1970s. It was hot and the pirates punch that Id partaken of at the Historic Palace Saloon was taking its toll. I needed a place to rest and get out of the sun so I gravitat ed towards some music that I heard and had a seat in the shade. This tall gangly looking, string bean of a man had just started to play and within a minute I was transxed. This guys ngers were like lightening as he stroked that guitar. What I heard was nothing short of incredible. His fast, clean nger picking left me at a loss for words, but not him. His vocab ulary was astounding and even though I am a well read, edu cated man, he threw some words at me that I had seldom or nev er heard. And when he would tell a story, picking that guitar the whole time, he had the entire audience roll ing in the aisles with laughter one minute, and shedding tears the next. No, it wasnt the pirates punch or the heat that was causing me to feel this way, it was the transformational experience of hearing Gamble Rogers for the rst time. Gamble was one of the reasons I fell in love with White Springs because I came here from Jacksonville to my rst Florida Folk Fes tival when I heard he would be perform ing here. I was at a tourism meeting last week in Jasper and one of the participants said that visiting our area was a transforma tional experience for them. They didnt know Florida had places like they found in our region. The beauty of nature, the tranquility of a quieter more gentle place, the splendor of the rivers and springs, the solitude of the trails. The kindness of our people. Weve gotten used to it and sometimes take it for granted, but the refugee tourists that have escaped from the eight lane highways, the crowded beaches and the expensive theme parks, they know a miracle when they see one, and it transforms them. Transformation in people sometimes has ripple effects. Raymond Cheshire had a transformational experience of sorts every time he would come to visit his grandfather as a child. His grandfather would take him to the old Adams Country Store for treats, toys or ice cream and it was one of his favorite memories. After he retired and came back to White Springs he was distressed to see that the old store that held so many of his good memories was literally fall ing apart, so Raymond began another transformational experience. He bought the store and lovingly and painstakingly restored it to its original condition. A wonderful transformation! Transformational experiences can be major or minor, but most are unforgetta ble and the ones that happen in the beau tiful area of our North Florida include a variety of things ranging from catching your rst sh to diving into a North Flor ida spring for the rst time. There are so many places and experiences here that are so special. When we encounter them, they transform us. Whats yours? We stopped at the old Dollar General building in White Springs, which has had a transformational experience too, one that we are very happy to see. It is now the home of Black Bay Seafood, where not only is the variety and price of their gulf seafood and their ready to eat sea food platters outstanding, but also the oth er items they have! A choice of meats and eggs and some mighty ne looking coun try bacon and a wide variety of fresh veg etables were available and I understand the choices are growing all the time. The place was bright and clean and the folks there were friendly and helpful. Well be back and were glad to support this new addition to White Springs, another wel come transformational experience for our business community. Were always glad to hear about goings on in the community and will be glad to share anything appropriate for this col umn. Email is the best way to contact me, but any way is welcome. I am thank ful 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 spe cial 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 wherev er you may be. Walter McKenzie 386-303-1394 lifeinwhitesprings@gmail.com Transformational White Springs Healthy Living You are your only competition You made the decision that you are going to live a healthy lifestyle. It wasnt an easy decision for you to make but once you did, you were all in. You have been working your tail off to stay on track with exercise and eating healthy. The scale is reecting your hard work. Maybe not as fast as you would like, but denitely going in the right direction. You are feeling pretty good too. Somewhere along the line most of us make the decision that our health is important to us. We make it a priority in our lives. We walk several times or make it to the gym three to four days during the week. Watch our nutrition and keep a health journal to help us stay on track. Then the next time we walk into the gym, we see someone who we compare ourselves too. We think why dont I look like her? Or why am I not making prog ress as fast as he is? Or we run into an old friend who looks like they have not gained a pound since high school. All of the sudden you feel like you have not made much progress at all. You feel bad and admit it. A little jealous. We have all been there. As soon as we start to compare our selves to others, we lose condence in what we are doing and how far we have come. When this happens, we need to take a deep breath and remember the rea son we are in that gym to begin with. No one can do the workout for you. No one can lift those weights for you. No one knows how hard you have been working to stay on track with your eating except you. Each of us is on a unique journey and we are not all the same. Some of us are genetically gifted with a slender build while others of us me includ ed didnt even see single digits the day we were born. Ten-pound baby in the house! You have read it here before but Im going to write it again. One size does not t all and we all progress at different rates. The perfect exam ple is my husband stopped drinking sweet tea and lost 15 pounds. Here I am in the gym ve days a week on track with my eating at least 80 percent of the time lucky to lose 1/2 pound since my sur gery. How is that even fair? And THAT is when I want to hang him from a tree out back. But you know what? I lost 1/2 pound last week which is in the right direc tion. The comparison I make is that I am better than I was a month ago or even a year ago. My competition is the one in the mirror that looks back at me. My goal is to simply be better tomorrow than I was today and yours should be too. Be kind to yourself. Health is a jour ney and sometimes when you think you have it gured out, you run into a hard right turn. Simply breathe, regroup, and allow yourself to grow. Anything is pos sible as long as you believe in yourself. Todays you is better than yesterdays you and tomorrows you will be even better than todays you. Focus on you and only you. And remember YES YOU CAN! Have a wonderful week.

Denise may be reached at DeniseSanger. com, 386/292-6105 or denisesanger@ gmail.com A few nights ago, my husband and I heard a comedian on television who con veyed his surprise over the apathy he feels when hearing a tragic report. He joked about trying to work up some compas sion when hearing of a violent crime or other tragedy. As I watched, people in the audience were laughing, yet looking around to make sure others saw the humor in what he was saying. Before we get offended by his com ments, lets understand where he was coming from. We can readily agree that we live in an age of information overload. In fact, we are likely to hear horrifying details on the hour of any given day that we turn on the news. Further, if we al lowed ourselves to feel every report, we would never get the opportunity to recover from the grief produced by one event before another wave hits. Yet, do we dare we admit to apathy? Believe it or not, the Bible actually warns us that this will happen. Matthew 24:12 says the following: And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. (ESV) This verse is contained in a passage with the heading, Signs of the End of the Age. We are drawing closer and closer to the day when Jesus will re turn. Apathy is just one of the signs we are to be expecting. However, as a believer in Christ, what should we do when apathy threatens to cause our hearts to callous over? We have already concluded that it can be tough on our hearts to have the depth of concern for every tragedy that it deserves. But we do have some things very close to our hearts that need no straining to evoke compas sion. A great way to protect our self from growing cold is to make the connection. If we feel disconnect ed and indifferent when hearing tragic news, consider those involved as if they were someone close to you. How would you feel? Ask God to renew your sense of compassion for others and to respect their suffering and grief as you would desire yours to be respected. For over ten years now I have sat before my computer each week and asked God to help me write something to convince ev ery reader their heart really does matter to God. We have studied countless passages together concerning marriage, parenting, trust and responsibility, all in an effort to help us experience Gods best in the area of relationships and so understand how much our own hearts matter. And they do. But this week, lets emphasize the word every that begins the last phrase of my column every week. Every heart matters to God, no matter the size, color, or con dition. May God help them to matter to us too.

JUNE 27 & 28, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A Around the Banks Enjoy the blessings of summertime Hot town, summer in the city, Back of my neck getting dirty and grit ty. (Lyrics by: Matthew Campbell and Nicholas Demetriades and performed by The Loving Spoonful can you believe it, over 50 years ago.) Summer time has ofcially arrived here, as the Summer Solstice occurred on June 21, and signaled the beginning of long and hotter days for all of us here in our home. You have to experience summer time here to know what it is. Here are a few descriptive phrases for the season in re gards to the temperature. Its so hot and humid; if you get a breath of air, youll steal it. Its hotter than blue blazes. Its hotter than a two dollar pistol. Its hot enough to get bear caught if you are not careful. Bear caught refers to heat exhaustion and it can be deadly. The kind of heat we have in north Florida during the summer months, the bear is always on the prowl. If you are working outside, make sure you are well-hydrated, meaning, drink plenty of water, and water is the best thing to drink, and, if you feel tired and weak, dont be ashamed to stop and rest a few minutes, as this heat can be deadly and thats a fact. No one in this season is exempt from the teeth and the claws of the bear. He can appear in beautiful yards and gardens, as well as in open elds. During the sum mer months, he may roam where ever he chooses and appear in some likely and less than likely locations. Be careful. One other thing, I will discuss that happens with some frequency during the summer months here; summer thunder storms. Summer thunde storms often include lightning. Lighting can be present for the eye to see, but it can hide. If that thunder is rolling close to you; whether you see lighting or whether you dont, it would pay for you to respect it. Lightning can be a somewhat invisible and silent killer. I know of several stories where folks could not see any sign of lighting, working happily out in the eld or in the yard; even though they heard thunder, and they were hit by lightning. Some survived, some did not. You cant imagine the force or the power of a light ing strike, and we have a good many of those here where we live. Anything that has the power to split or cause a huge longleaf pine or an old Live Oak to ex plode, pretty powerful. I think of the old Country and Western lyrics. Thunder makes the noise, man, But lightning does the work. Thunder does, however let you know, that lighting is in the neighborhood. A few things it pays to respect. Sudden natural disasters involving weather are referred to, even by some insurance ad justors as acts of God. Lighting is one of those acts. Anything involving the Almighty is something to respect and fear. Thats my story, and Im sticking to it. On that you can disagree with me, and I will respect your right to be wrong, and we wont be disagreeable about it, but I am not changing my mind. Well, now that we have familiar local color sayings about the heat, and warn ings about it, lets talk about some of the advantages of summer. I am, referring, of course, to the many wonderful and delicious fruits and vegetables available to us during these hot, summer months, and there are many. Mouth-watering vine ripened tomatoes, fresh okra, eld peas, butter beans, sweet corn, green peanuts, wonderful and succulent watermelons, cantaloupes, peaches, blueberries are all in season. Christmas tis the season to be jolly. Well, summertime tis the season to rejoice and revel in some of the best fruits and vegetables this side of heaven. Each season offers its pluses and mi nuses. Winter time, some cold, windy weather, but wonderful times to sit around the re and eat some of those canned and frozen vegetables harvested during the summer in homemade vegetable soup. Spring, pollen and suffering from the pollen from those with allergies and re spiratory ailments, but the glory of bright colored owers, the beautiful pageantry of different shades of green. Fall, again with goldenrod and other fall owers, allergy sufferers do, at times, suffer, and the leaves to be picked up and raked, but the glory of north Georgia apples, the rst delight as the air changes from hot and humid to crisp and cool, and the glory of pecans, picked up, cracked, and used in many regional delicacies including mar velous pecan pie. My grandmother would say If you cant say something good about someone, then say nothing. I havent always abid ed these words. I would have been much better off if I had abided them. Each sea son offers us positives and some things that may be less than positive, but each offers its own unique beauty in its own way. Heres a good summer time recipe. This was often served when I was a child, and I can still taste it. Mr. Lawrence Jim Udell serves this fairly often at many community and family gatherings around White Springs. This is his specialty, and I dont know that this recipe can hold a candle, but try it. Old Fashioned Lemonade: 6 cups of water 2 cups of lemon juice (juice from 8-10 lemons) 1 cup of sugar or sweeten to taste. (maybe a dab more of sugar, maybe a little less depending on if you like your lemonade tart or sweet, sweet) You can also sweeten with articial sweetener to taste. I would use hot or warm water so the sugar will fully dissolve. Place in the fridge to cool or cool down with ice cubes.

JUNE 27 & 28, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A CNHI News Service Donald Trump has never really hit it off with Hannah Hirl but now he needs her more than ever as he strives to overcome what opinion polls show is a growing gender gap dogging his presidency. Hirl, 26, a college senior from Oska loosa, Iowa, said she unhappily voted for Trump in 2016 because he opposed abortion and Hillary Clinton did not. That put Hirl in the category of 53 percent of white women who voted for Trump despite the contretemps over his attitude toward women, and accusa tions of sexual im proprieties. Hirl is representative of many white female voters in the heartland of Amer ica the swath of states in the nations center that swept Trump to victory who still harbor conicted thoughts about the president, realizing they could tip the scales for or against him in both the 2018 midterm and 2020 presidential elections. The observation is based on inter views conducted by reporters for more than 100 local newspapers operated by the CNHI media group in the Midwest, South and the Northeast as phase two of the companys quarterly Pulse of the Voters series tracking political senti ment. The reporters met with female and male voters of all ages and backgrounds in their homes, coffee shops, restaurants and workplaces in an effort to judge the electoral weight they give to character and traditional American values as they dene them. The informal survey showed there is a gender gap when considering the char acter and the conduct of a candidate. But it also indicated voters of both gen ders, even those who identify as deeply religious, often consider issues over conduct when casting their ballots. Hannah Hirl put it this way: a candi dates history of morality is something I think about when I vote. But it is not the main thing I think about when Im deciding who to vote for. Randa Wilson, 51, a hairdresser from Varnell, Georgia, said she asks God for guidance before voting, something she didnt do until age 40 when she was inspired by Barack Obamas campaign of hope. In November of 2016, her spiritual ity moved her to support Trump even though she believed the accusations of bad behavior. She saw evidence of re demption. Weve all made mistakes, she said. That was his past and everybody de serves a second chance. That attitude reects the continued support for Trump among evangelical Christians despite sordid accusations by porn lm actress Stormy Daniels and Playboy playmate Karen McDougal that they had separate adulterous affairs with Trump before he was elected president. A Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll in April found that in the wake of Daniels ap pearance on Minutes, allegiance to Trump among women overall fell from 41 percent to 35 percent, but support among men rose 3 points to 53 percent. Jason Gillman, 53, of East Bay Town ship in northwest Michigan, believes the accusations, which Trump denies, were Gender gap shadows Trumps presidency Nation fabricated. Frankly, as a Christian, I also believe that forgiveness is a major part of what we are as Christians. Gary Rogers, pastor of the Grand Assembly of God Church in Chickasha, Oklahoma, said he has mixed feelings about Trumps morality yet he voted for him because of his America First ap proach and embrace of the military. I dont care for his morality at all, said Rogers. I dont like anything about things that hes said regarding his mor al conduct. Brenna Bell, a recent graduate of Ar dmore High School in rural Alabama, said Daniels was right to share her his tory with Trump on national televsion. Bell took issue with critics who say Daniels story was motivated by publici ty and money. Men get mad when girls try to tell the truth about them, said Bell, who will be rst-time voter in November. That comes back to no one takes wom en seriously. Tim Gungoll, a registered Republican and attorney in Enid, Oklahoma, doesnt believe there is a gender gap in todays politics, only a difference in who speaks for women. There are a lot of more radicalized women, and they tend to be the ones that are in politics, he said. Hed prefer women from a traditional family back ground speak up and get involved in politics. Theres no pushback on that point from Barbara Schmader, 85, a Trump supporter from Valdosta, Georgia. She doesnt agree with the #MeToo move ment, but does encourage women to run for public ofce, opining they would be less inclined to join the good old boys clubs. They would govern honestly. As for the #MeToo campaign to ex pose harassment and abuse of women, she remarked: When I grew up and someone did something wrong, you ei ther told your parents, or you told some body, or you beat the crap out of them. Trumps focus on what he promotes as his political values tax cuts, de regulation, secure borders, tougher trade policies prompted varied responses. Robbie Cannon, a former U.S. Ma rine, interpreted those values as family, country, God, honesty, hard work and responsibility. He said Trump embod ies most of them. I dont think hes morally unt, but I dont believe hes a saint, either. Liecha Collins, 56, a registered nurse and conservative Christian from small town Undilla, New York, characterized traditional values as marriage between a man and a women, welcoming immi grants who come through the front door, and the principle of hard work. And that, she adds, is why she supports Pres ident Trump. Shannon McGinley, a mother of ve from Bedford, New Hampshire, ques tioned Trumps values, saying he is not a good role model for her children. Nonetheless, she voted for him and continues her support because he is ex panding religious liberty and restricting abortion rights. Shes also beneting from the federal tax-cut law that went into effect Jan. 1. Hes made some bad choices in his personal life, said McGinley, the exec utive director of a conservative religious group. The dichotomy is that hes do ing a lot of good things. I also think we have to be merciful and understand that people can change. Morgan Mullins, 32, a Democrat from rural Morehead, Kentucky, said Amer ican values are inscribed in the Decla ration of Independence Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Those are some of the rst really strong American words I had drilled into me, and they have stuck with me. Frank and Pattie Rocco, Trump loyal ists from Transfer, Pennsylvania, points to his wealth as a real estate developer r fnt b ntftrrfnfr nfnrttrnr fnrf rrr rr nt rftr and reality TV producer before he be came president as proof of his loyalty to his country and the pursuit of happiness. He is a very rich man, and he loves the country, said Frank Rocco. He could be in the Bahamas drinking mar garitas and enjoying his life instead of putting up with all this slander thats coming at him. But hes doing it because he has a family here and he loves this country. Thats not the way Jan Flowers, a retired Mabank, Texas, school teacher, sees the president and his core constitu ency. Im not sure that we still have tra ditional American values, she said. Trump supporters seem to want to drag us back to the s when it was great to be white, middle class and religious. They want to squeeze anyone not in the core group out. Flowers said there denitely is a voter gap in Americas body politic, and one reason is women feel more empowered. Educated women who can think will factor gender issues when they vote, she said. I agree with Barbara Bush how could any woman vote for Trump? Bill Ketter is senior vice president of news for CNHI.

JUNE 27 & 28, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 10A The Jasper News 106293-1 (StatePoint) One of the toughest aspects of man aging cancer in children is communicating with young patients, say parents and healthcare experts. There were many times when my daughter did not want to talk or commu nicate her feelings, says Joycelynn Sanchez of now 6-year-old Jiani, who at age 3, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leuke mia. She grew tired of the pokes and the questions and would become with drawn. Fortunately, many parents and doctors are nding that new tech nology can help young patients like Jiani better communicate their feel ings and manage their condition. For example, My Special Aac Duck, a creation of Aac, an insur ance industry leader, and Sproutel, a research and development workshop, is an award-winning smart companion that nuzzles, quacks and dances with the lifelike movement of a real duckling. While entertaining, its not a toy. Its specically designed to help comfort, teach and empower young patients as they go through their jour ney with cancer, reecting the belief that children need more than medicine to cope with the stress and loneliness that often come with their disease. On average, childhood cancer treatment lasts more than 1,000 days, says Aaron Horowitz, CEO and co-founder of Sproutel. We thought there must be a way to help alleviate some of the burden. Using the new compan ion technology, children can communicate their emotions by tapping color ful emoji cards to a sensor on the ducks chest. Tap an emoji with a happy expression and it responds with delighted quacking. Choose the sad face and it lowers its head and sighs. Children can mirror their care routines through a compatible web-based app, including medical play and feeding and bathing their duck via augmented reality. It also dances, quacks, and nuzzles to help distract and calm them. Its exterior can even be removed, washed and sanitized. Creation of the comfort ing companion is an ex tension of Aacs 22-year, $122 million commitment to childhood cancer caus es. Their goal is to provide this feathered friend free of charge to all newly di agnosed children, nearly 16,000 each year accord ing to the National Cancer Institute. Distribution, targeted to begin this com ing winter, will be through hospitals, and the robotic duck will not be for gener al consumer sale. Jianis treatment, which lasted three years and in cluded various chemother apies, as well as countless spinal taps and antibiotics, was completed in Decem ber 2017. There were some tough times, but through it all, she was a champion, says Sanchez.

JUNE 27 & 28, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 11A State & Region tom.lynn@ganews.com ATHENS, Ala. Women and wom ens issues are front and center this elec tion year. With the rise of the #MeToo movement, women across the country are staking their claim on the political landscape, running for ofce in high numbers and standing up to sexual harassment. The movement has led to the downfall of powerful and inu ential men such as Harvey Weinstein and the environment that allows them to thrive. Recent Ardmore (Alabama) High School graduate Brenna Bell said she sees traditional American values as the man of the house being the breadwinner while the woman stays home to cook, clean and raise children. I was raised around that, she said. I was also told I couldnt be a doctor because Im a woman. Thats how I view traditional American values. Those kinds of values arent important to her in the voter booth. She said thats because shes not a traditional person. The things that are really important to her are equal rights for everyone, re gardless of gender, sexual preference or race meaning no matter who a person is, what they look like or where they were raised, everyone should be given an equal chance. Hardly anyone takes me seriously when I talk about this stuff, but Im really passionate about it, Bell said because of her age. Because it needs to be talked about. It needs to be addressed. People are trying to bring more awareness to it, but then you have those mainly men pushing everyone else down, and theyre like, No, thats not important. Im import ant. My money and my job is important. At the forefront of this discussion is the media restorm surrounding President Donald Trump and former adult lm star Stormy Daniels. Bell said she thinks Daniels was right to share her history with Trump. She said she believes attempts to discredit Daniels by accusing her of only sharing the story for attention or money is part of why men became more supportive of Trump. Men get mad when girls try to say the truth about them. That comes back to no one takes women seriously, Bell said. So a lot of people men, specically use their posi tion and power to just stuff all that back down. Women share some of the responsibility when it comes to issues such as the gender pay gap, Bell said. Girls, women, they dont speak up about what they deserve, so they get told theyre getting a certain pay and theyre just like, OK, when they know they work way too hard and way too long to just get that me diocre pay, Bell said. Not everyone agrees with Bell, especially when it comes to her views of President Trump and the #MeToo movement. Taking the Pulse The national media was caught off guard in the 2016 presidential election, predicting a decisive win by then candidate Hillary Clin ton. It can be argued the media was not paying atten tion to America, especially rural America. As we approach midterm elections this November, we want to listen really listen and thats why we are publishing the sec ond edition of Pulse of the Voter. Newspapers across multiple states and regions conducted grassroots inter views in an environment where participants felt comfortable. CNHI news papers plan to speak with voters four times each year through the next presiden tial election in 2020.

We specically wanted to get a snapshot of how voters in the South feel about tradi tional American values and the role those values play when deciding who to vote for. We also asked residents about gender issues such as the glass ceiling, pay gap and the #MeToo movement. This year marks the largest number of women running for elected positions in Americas history. But not all women support the #MeToo movement. Barbara Schmader, a Valdosta, Georgia, resident, said she isnt a fan of #MeToo. I dont like it, she said. When I grew up and someone did something wrong, you either told your parents, or you told some body, or you beat the crap out of them. Speaking about the number of movie stars coming out against powerful men in Hollywood such as Weinstein, Schmader said everyone always knew actresses had to sleep their way to the top. That was our mindset back then, she said. She also spoke about how fashion has changed and how women dress in more re vealing clothes than when she was young. What do they expect from a man when they come out with their boobs hanging out and their dress slit up to nowhere and no under-clothes on? Schmader said. I think women dress indecently. I dont think its acceptable for a man do to something, but I think the women invite it. Fashion isnt the only thing that Schmad er said has changed in America. She said she grew up in a time when a handshake meant something. It was a time when a man would rather die than go back on his word, the 85-yearold Valdosta resident said. Thinking about Americas traditional val ues, Schmader said honesty stands above everything else. When it comes to picking a candidate to vote for, she looks to see who she thinks is the most honest. She said she looks for the person who shares her values. Thats how I vote, she said. Values have changed so much. I want to make sure theyre honest and see how they spend peo ples money and that they will treat it like their own. Schmader said frugality is another key American traditional value. Her family struggled to make money when she was a kid, which means she has respect for how much a dollar is worth, she said. It bothers her when she sees people spending money as if they didnt have a care in the world. I see people today with no respect for money. Maybe, they dont have to work as hard for it, Shmader said. Just spend money wisely. In 2016, Schmader voted for Trump. She said she was for Trump when Republicans in Lowndes County, Georgia, were all for Ted Cruz. She said she researched Trumps previous interviews and learned that he was talking about ways to handle North Korea decades ago. Little things like that made her choose Trump over the other Republicans running, she said. There have been times when she didnt like him as a person, she said. There were things he said during the campaign that made her cringe. But, I saw people I ran the Republican headquarters up here I saw people come from all over the county. They would tell me they love what he says, Schmader said. They would say, Its time for people to speak their minds. Schmader chuckled and said she doesnt think Trump is an eloquent speaker, but she described one of his rallies like a big family reunion where everyones favorite uncle entertained everybody. It was so relaxing. I just got good vibes from it, Schmader said. And, I think, it was meant to be this way. I felt a push toward him. My husband used to say that God gives us who he wants us to have for a reason. It may be good or it may be bad. Dening Traditional American Values Tifton, Georgia, resident Jerry Hughes, 67, said individual freedom and equal opportunity are some of the founding prin ciples of the country and the values that matter most to him. Why does that not make sense? he asked. Thats what our country was formed for some of the poorest people, paupers and prisoners and everything else, they were the ones who came here.

He does, however, vote in every elec tion. Voting is a privilege, he said. A lot of people dont look at it that way. The issue that most affects how he votes is smaller less government. Jobs also affect how he votes, citing Trumps business dealings as a reason to vote for him. Government needs to be run as a business, he said. Hes a businessman. He has succeeded, hes failed, hes come back. I thought there was nothing better than someone who doesnt need the job to apply business principles to putting this country back to work. He said he feels Trump is an awesome manipulator. Let him be Donald Trump, he said. We hired him. Thats why conservatives came out, evangelicals, you name it, thats why he got that vote. People want some body to get this country to where every body else can enjoy (it). Hughes said he doesnt think that the president is a racist or anti-Latino. He also applauded bringing North and South Ko rea to the negotiation table. When discussing gender issues, he said inequality in pay has never caught his at tention, saying he has been in food service for 28 years. I know a lot of ladies in the meat busi ness that work with national companies making $75,000, $100,000 a year, he said. To my knowledge nobody pays them more or less. He said he doesnt think there is a glass ceiling and that more and more women are getting higher and higher positions, while acknowledging men have dominated busi ness positions. If youre smart as a manager, why would you hold (employees) down? he asked. Hughes said gender doesnt factor into his voting decisions. A candidates quali cations are what he considers. He said he didnt understand the #Me Too movement at rst. I have no tolerance for some of the things men do, he said. I have a daugh ter. I have three sons and my baby is a daughter. He said guys are guys. Ive learned through the years that I dont necessarily like participating with it, Hughes said. Its back to when you talk about traditional values. Ethics. Mor als. I thought about the root (of it) and the root with me is family. He said traditionally, children had a fa ther gure and a mother gure that taught them how to behave, and if they grew up in church they learned more. The moral character of this country is suffering, he said. The hardest question for me is one posed not long ago. Can you have a good moral character and not be raised in a religion? Im not sure. If you were raised up in a horrible situation, its going to affect you so as you grow, you cant necessarily get rid of all of it. I dont know what causes guys to do it. I think guys should be scared to death nowadays. Relying on Faith Relying heavily on traditional values and biblical references, retired Tennessee Valley Authority worker Ralph Richard son has clear ideas about the upcoming midterm elections. He values candidates whom he regards as accessible and genu ine when he casts his vote. Richardson, a 75-year-old black man living in Alabama, worships and some times preaches at James Chapel Mission ary Baptist Church. He spends his days shooting the breeze at the local Farmers Market and helping out at area charities such as the Athens-Limestone County Family Resource Center. Hes long been active in politics and civil rights issues. Things are a little better than they were when I was a kid 50 or 60 years ago, he said. I see segregation fading away. As for the scandal involving Daniels, Richardson said overall he believes the ac cusations she has made against Trump. The people want to take the White House off the shoulders of God and put it on Trump, he said. Elevating Trump to God-like status has led to extreme compromise in the Trump camp, Richardson said. He said he also believes there is a gen der gap in the country. There is a need and reason people want to see a resume, theyre looking for a cer tain gender, he said. However, being a traditionalist, Richard son said he doesnt believe women should hold position of powers, including political ofces, citing the New Testament verse in 1 Timothy 2:12-13 where he says St. Paul warns against women exercising authority over men. He also has strong opinions about Ala bama Gov. Kay Ivey. It bothers him that shes a woman, but it bothers him more that she is a Republican, which hints at a phenomenon unique to the Bible Belt. Richardson is a Democrat through and through, but unlike the overwhelming ma jority of Democrats on the West and East Coast, he describes himself as a biblical conservative. I dont think that women should usurp authority over a man because Adam was created before Eve, he said. Dont get me wrong I admire what women are do ing, but if a women was going to run for the ofce of governor, I wouldnt vote for her. Tish Gordon of Dalton, Georgia, is a mother of three who said she cherishes her family and her Christian values. Those values are reected in the political candi dates she supports. I go back to the beginning with God and to how this country was founded, and it was on Christian beliefs, Gordon said. Those still stand today, and I think it is still there. I am all for change, but there are some things that should remain con stant, and God is the center of all of our major decisions. But the 40-year-old has a problem with President Trump. I dont like him as a person, said Gor don, who works for an insurance compa ny. I dont think he is a reection of the values that I hold true, but I dont put him on a pedestal either. Rather than blindly supporting the pres ident, Gordon said she does move to the center on some issues. But the center, she said, is a no-mans land in todays polar ized political climate. Moultrie, Georgia, resident Jonathan Gary, 48, a black non-emergency transport driver for Colquitt Regional Medical Cen ter, said he thinks values such as faith and family are worth keeping. Having faith in God Almighty we cant be who we are without him. I think family means a lot. The only way you can survive is if you have family behind you, he said. Gary reads a newspaper every day and keeps up with current events. Being knowledgeable and voting are important to him, even though he did not vote for either the Democratic or Republican pres idential nominee in 2016. He said he does not think Trump embodies the morals and values he espouses. He can say how much he believes in God, he said. His moral values, I dont think theyre high at all. Personal Affairs Randa Wilson was dismayed when she rst heard of Trumps alleged affairs. Wilson, who is a 51-year-old hairdresser in northwest Georgia, is a relatively new voter. She didnt register until she was in her 40s, when Barack Obamas ascension to the White House inspired her to have her voice heard. And when she votes, the Varnell resi dent asks God for guidance on which can didates to choose on the ballot. Wilson said she suspected Trump had likely been unfaithful, but she also be lieved those indiscretions were buried deep within his past. Still, she doesnt hold any of this against him because she said she has detected a change in how he publicly prays, which she sees as a sign of redemption. In his prayers, he seems more earnest, she said. It seems like its not so written for him. Weve all made mistakes, Wilson said. That was his past, and everybody deserves a second chance, you know? To some like Lester Bruce, a 77-yearold who retired from the manufacturing industry, Trumps indelity doesnt matter at all. He said hes unfazed by the focus on Trumps past indelity and the more recent attempts to cover it up. Im not going to say I dont believe it, but it dont matter to me, the northwest Georgia resident said. As long as hes not up there with a bunch of them in the White House, its ne with me, Bruce added, laughing. Mia Lister, a Georgia College student in Milledgeville, Georgia, said she doesnt believe when Trump says he didnt have an affair with Daniels. I dont believe him because of things that hes said about women in the past, Continued From Page 11A Lister said. I feel like he does not respect women because of comments he made about grabbing women in the private area. I feel like that was pretty disrespectful to ward women. She said gender issues are high on her list when she considers who to vote for. However, she isnt sure the #MeToo movement will affect the midterm election I guess in a way, Lister said. I think it would make people more aware of it. Theyre not taking it as something that happens and then not saying anything about it. I think it will prevent some peo ple from doing certain things and getting away from and will make people know who theyre really voting for. Hadyn Edwards is also a Georgia Col lege student. He said the situation between Trump and Daniels is between them. I feel like thats his personal life, Edwards said. I dont know him. Ive never seen him. I guess hes our president, but thats his personal life. Why does that pertain to his ability to rule the country? I mean I guess that points to his morals but we chose him. He comes as a package deal, right? Edwards said he doesnt vote, so he doesnt consider gender issues at all. The last election did affect him, though. I feel really uneducated about it all, because I havent googled and all that, Edwards said. But then again when I do google who do I listen to? Which one is right? Why are we talking about a porn star? It just seems very muddled. While Gary, the Moultrie transport driv er, doesnt believe Trump has strong moral values, it doesnt mean he is necessarily supportive of women who have come forward since Trump jumped into the pres idential fray in 2015 with accusations of sexual improprieties and affairs. The timing and timeliness of the ac cusations concern him. Im all for womens rights, he said. The thing I have a problem with is why you have the women coming forward after 20 or 30 years. How do they remember the details? I dont believe every one of them is telling the truth. He also doesnt believe the biggest sex scandal the Stormy Daniels saga is necessarily a political issue for the presi dent. I think theres lying on both sides, he said. She has a hidden agenda; he just wants it to go away. Its nothing political. Its a circus. To me, its between him and his wife at this point. Like Gary, Isabella Brooks seems will ing to give the president the benet of the doubt on allegations made by women. I feel like in some cases if you waited 20 years or longer, why come forward now? said Brooks, a long-time civil rights advocate and president of the Colquitt County Chapter of the National Associ ation for the Advancement of Colored People. Brooks said her opinion may not be a popular one, but she thinks people should speak up at the time of an episode. If something happened to you, you need to report it when it happened, she said. I dont want to call a president a liar. It could be true, it could not be true. When youre in the public eye, people try to dig up things. Character Over Experience Beth Grant, 70, of Thomasville, Geor gia, said she looks at a candidates char acter rst and experience second. She also looks at the genuineness of a candidate, assessing if what they say is what they tru ly believe or is it just what their intended audience wants to hear. You can tell a lot by peoples body language and the looks on their faces and how they interact with people. Do they touch people, do they look like theyre comfortable in their own self, she said. I think you can see that with somebody as they speak and interact. Grant calls Trump a very pathological person. His character is minus zero, in my opinion, she said. Hes a disgrace and an embarrassment to our country, in my opinion. It is just so obvious to me. It abbergasts me that people dont see that immediately. He has no relationship with the truth. He brags. He exaggerates. He denies. And he blames. You cant believe anything he says to be fact-based. Its really sad that so many people be lieve what he says just because he says it. Trumps election has had a positive outcome, to Grant just after his inau guration, people became more involved and she took part in the womens march in Tallahassee, Florida. That very Saturday, hundreds of thou sands were marching all over the country, speaking up to say that women are to be respected, that all people are to be respect ed and that science mattered, she said. That was a big theme of that parade, that science matters, reality matters, truth matters. I think that has brought women out, here in town and all over the country, all over the world. It was like he slapped us all in the face and we said, no. Thats whats happening and its exciting. Grant likewise is encouraged by the number of women now running for ofce at the local, state and national level. Women are saying were ready to be heard, she said. Were ready to be taken seriously. The #MeToo movement also has been a welcome result from reaction to Trumps presidency for Grant. Suddenly, its become acceptable to believe women when they have been ha rassed or sexually violated, she said. It seemed to be the norm for too long that you didnt have to pay attention to that. Gun Control Mattering More National headlines from April to June ranged from accusations about Trumps relationship with an adult lm star to his international policies and relations, but the topics that resonated most in East Missis sippi were school shootings, gun control and related mental health issues. Keaton Jones, 19, of Meridian, Missis sippi, was one of the East Mississippi res idents who said gun control was number one on his list. Gun control, easily, especially with what happened in Santa Fe (Texas), Jones said. I feel like things need to be changed. Jones said citizens should be at least 21 before they can legally purchase a rearm and stricter background checks should also be put in place. And while there are other issues such as gun-show loopholes and minors obtaining their parents rearms, something has to be done, he said. I just feel like it happens all the time with Parkland and now Santa Fe, Jones said. People are going to get the ideas of copycat killers and I hate it. Jones also blames mental health issues for the increased number of shootings in America. Especially in Mississippi, funding for mental health isnt a priority, and I think it should be, Jones said. I know theres things that need money, too, but when youre putting multiple millions of dollars out of mental health, that seems like an issue to me. Talmadge Gray, a 16-year mental health professional, agrees that cuts in mental health funding are a big problem for both the state of Mississippi and the nation. This year alone, the state cut $5 million in mental health funding, includ ing discontinuing chemical dependency services mostly for males. With the nationwide opioid crisis, thats a big deal, he said. There should be more money put into mental health, because its a big issue, and now theres a push to get some of the long-term patients out into the communi ty, Gray said. Some of them just cant function because theyve been institution alized for 20 or 30 years. More stringent gun legislation appeared to be a recurring theme among Meridian voters. Like Thompson, Jamard Wright, 39, shared the same concerns about the fre quency of mass shootings, particularly in schools. The Meridian resident would like to see a more united front from lawmakers in dealing with the epidemic. My issue that I think the lawmakers or anybody needs to deal with within the next few years would be gun control, Wright said. Gun control affects everybody; theres no gender, race or anything that it doesnt touch. We have too many incidents where young children are either playing with guns and shooting and hurting family members, brothers and sisters, to mass shootings. Gun control has to be tackled in some way. I know its a touchy sub ject, and I know for lawmakers its even touchier, but as a lawmaker, and youve been voted into that position, your job is to protect us at all costs. And right now, for me, the No. 1 issue is gun control. You have kids going to school who dont feel safe. And though it hasnt happened in our community, we have to be prepared for the same type of thing that drove these other people to walk into a school and shoot some of the same issues were dealing with ourselves. We have to be careful. CNHI reporters in Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama contributed to this report. State & Region

Sendoff will be June 29 michael.jones@ganews.com MAYO A xture on the sidelines at La fayette High School, Joey Pearson has been part of the Hornets football program for more than 30 years. It started as a player when Pearson suited up from 1985 to 1987. He returned to LHS as an assistant coach in 1991 and then took over head coaching duties in 1999. In 19 seasons as head coach, Pearson has compiled a 147-64 record, won six district titles, led his team to 14 playoff appearances and was the 2007 Dairy Farmers Class 1A Coach of the Year. Now, Pearson is headed to the Hall of Fame. On Thursday, June 21, he was one of six coaches named to the FACA (Florida Athletic Coaches Association) Hall of Fame Class of 2019. Its nice to be recognized for the consis tency and hard work, said Pearson, who also coached the LHS track team to ve district titles and six individual state championships. Twenty-seven years Ive being doing this. It makes you reect back on all the people players, coaches, fans and especially family who have been a vital part of the success. Even after all the accolades, Pearson doesnt appear to be slowing down. Hes averaged eight wins per season during the last 10 years and led the Hornets to the playoffs and a 9-2 mark just a year ago. When looking at Mayo and Lafayette High football, there is a tradition of winning and great players. Pearson is continuing that legacy in his hometown. Mayo is a special place.

Both are back this year and will be essential parts of Lafayettes air at tack. But after graduating four receiv ers including Kerby Hanson (25 catches, four touchdowns in 2017) Lafayette is trying to develop some new receivers behind Massey. Theyve been doing that this summer with 7-on-7 workouts. On Tuesday, June 19, LHS hosted the Madison County Cowboys. One of those new Hornet receivers, Kewian Reid, stood out against a fast and talented Madison County de fense. Reid made four catches during the hour-long workout, which includ ed an acrobatic leaping grab near the goal line that went for 40 years. Its great that were playing against good teams to get better for the upcoming season, Reid said of his squads 7-on-7 workouts this summer. rfnn LIVE OAK Signups for the Live Oak Open Golf Tournament at Suwannee Country Club are currently available.

The school system and the people of Mayo have supported me and allowed me to coach for so many years. Pearson will join another Lafayette High coaching great in the hall of fame. Taylor McGrew was in ducted into the FACA Hall of Fame in 2011. According to its website, the Hall of Fame Award is the highest honor presented by the FACA. It is de signed to recognize FACA members for years of coaching tenure in Florida high schools, for dedicated service to the FACA and for outstanding coaching accomplishments. A maxi mum of seven coaches are honored each year. Joining Pearson in the Hall of Fame Class of 2019 are Paul OHalloran (Lincoln), Merrill Worden (Astronaut), Gary Drose (Maclay), Richard LaBoun ty (Pensacola Catholic) and Marty Lee (First Coast). The FACA Hall of Fame ceremony will be held Jan. 12 in Daytona Beach. Continued From Page 1B Pearson As for developing a connection with Beach? I know at key mo ments hes going to need me, Reid said. Its good to be working to gether. The Hornets also used Tuesdays workout as a chance to develop re ceivers Austin Lee and Richey James. Massey was involved too, mak ing some nice defensive plays and also catching four passes. Obviously 7-on-7 is not real football, but during the summer it gives you a chance to work out against great teams and athletes, said Lafayette coach Joey Pearson. It gives receiv ers like Richey James, Kewian Reid and Austin Lee a chance to learn. Added Pearson: Its the same thing on de fense. Competing against those guys on Madison, trying to take the ball away from them. Theyve got some big time recruit ed athletes. I felt like we competed well against them. Continued From Page 1B Lafayettes rfr n t (StatePoint) When it comes to outdoor adventures, tape is at the top of most gear lists for its wide variety of uses -from torn tents to broken shing poles to ripped hiking gear. No matter if youre an avid outdoorsman or an occa sional adventurer, here are a few tape tips and ideas that are sure to stick. 1. Perfect Packing. On your adventure, you may need to cut weight -especially if youre hiking for miles. To ensure you have all the tape youll need while reducing the bulk in your pack, wrap a strong, all-weather tape around your trekking poles just beneath the handles. Itll be there when you need it and it adds additional grip. 2. Ripped Waders or Rain Gear. From y shers with chest waders to hikers with rain gear, outdoor adventurers choose their gear wisely to stay dry and pro tected. But what happens when the unforeseen rip occurs? Tape can be the difference between trip success and a soggy situa tion. However, dont throw just any roll into your backpack, you need tape that meets the needs of extreme outdoor environments. For that reason, Survivorman, Les Stroud, sticks with T-Rex brand, which offers all-weather protection that works longer and holds stronger. To mend gear, try using T-Rex Clear Repair Tape, which adheres and holds strong to wet surfaces, so that you can patch yourself up and get back into action. 3. Boot Basics. Broken-in boots are the best to ensure com fort and no blisters, but some times they can wear out mid-trek. Luckily, tape can be your savior to keep soles in place or add wa terproong until youre back to base. Additionally, adding tape around your boot top can keep laces from snagging and becom ing untied when youre trekking through brush or vines. 4. Fast Fix for Fishing Poles. If the unexpected happens and your rod breaks, it could be the end of the shing day for an in experienced angler. But if youre prepared with strong tape, youll have an easy solution -not an emergency. Depending on the location of the break, you may be able to reinforce the rod with a few layers of tape. Alternately, you could overlap the two broken sections by a few inches and tape the sections together thoroughly. Then, carry on until you limit out. 5. Torn Tents and Tarps. Af ter a long day in the outdoors, shelter is important for a good nights sleep. If an unfortunate tear occurs in your tent or your tarp, dont let rain or insects in -simply, patch it up with tape. A well-suited choice for the job is T-Rex Clear Repair Tape, since it sticks to both wet and dry surfaces, ensuring an easy and instant x in any weather condition. Plus, the clear color will blend in and look seam less. 6. Quick Campsite Clothesline. Forget your clothesline? Or, just dont feel like carrying extra rope (which can get tangled)? Create a cord out of a single piece of tape or by braiding three strands to gether and string it from one tree to another. Soon, youll have a strong spot to hang clothes to dry -or to tie bags of food up and off the ground away from hungry critters. Dont leave home without the proper supplies -especially tape. With this key necessity, youll be ready to handle a variety of situ ations or mishaps and enjoy your next outdoor adventure. Tips to save you from sticky outdoor situations
