The site, which was purchased by the Live Oak Community Redevel opment Agency last year, in the process of being torn down and cleared. George Curtis, the citys Planning and Zon ing Director, said the contract allows for 60 days for that process to conclude, although he doesnt expect it to take that long. Curtis said he expects the process to be con cluded by the end of July, barring any weather or other delays.

Three judges from Flor ida and Georgia had a long deliberation last month selecting the winners of the Suwannee Riverkeeper Songwriting Contest. Held at the Salty Snapper on June 23, six songwriters from Florida, Georgia and Tennessee performed in the contest for the three judges. The WWALS Songwrit ing Contest Committee met many times to plan for the rst annual contest. The purpose of the contest was to raise awareness of the WWALS watershed and its accomplishments. Will Eason of the Salty Snapper welcomed the group, WWALS Am bassador Dave Hetzel spoke about the origins of WWALS, Board member Bret Wagenhorst spoke about Outings, Committee Chair Eileen Box spoke about the Committee and WWALS Executive Direc tor Gretchen Quarterman was the emcee for the con test. The nalists, who played in random order, selected by drawing straws, with sound by Will Eason and other help by Scotti Jay, were: Emmett Carlisle, Gainesville; Laura DAli sera, Jacksonville; Hollin Gammage, McMinnville, Tenn.; Jadean Jourden, Ponte Vedra Beach; David Pharr, Live Oak; and Mike Suwannee Riverkeeper Songwriting contest winners named rrfrntbfff ntbrbfff f f f fbtfbtf nrr ffffb rfb f NATIONAL RECOGNITION Tappan, Valdosta.

Ken Taylor was driving back to Val dosta from Florida with his wife and two dogs when they saw an upside-down van slide past them through an intersection. Taylor, understandably, was surprised. The rst thing I thought was, Am I really seeing this? he said. Once he had time to process what he was seeing, the ser geant with the Valdosta Fire Department pulled his car to the side of the road and, without saying a word to his wife, sprang into action. Wearing shorts and a plain T-shirt, a groomed goatee and tattoos covering his arms and legs, Taylor didnt look like the classic image of a reghter in full gear. But that Sunday af ternoon in March, he was the rst person to do something for people in need of help. It was just reex, he said. There was already a lot of people just standing around the van, but nobody was doing anything. Taylor said he approached the passenger side, where a woman had already opened the door and fallen out. She was trying to open the sliding door when he saw two young chil dren, a boy and a girl, hanging upside down by their child safety seats. The boy was about 4 years old and the girl around 6, he said. They werent screaming or yelling. They looked scared to death, but they just hung there quietly and that bothered Taylor. They were quiet. I couldnt tell if they were hurt or not, he said. He quickly took hold of the boy and told him everything was going to be all right while he undid the seatbelt. The boy hugged Taylor back as he took him out of the van, passed him off to his mother and immediately went back for the girl. Once he had both kids out and with their parents, Taylor went back in the upside-down van for grandma. She was in the back of the van, bleeding from her forehead and the side of her face. Worse yet, the crash pinned her legs so she couldnt get out. I couldnt see her legs, Taylor said. She was dazed and couldnt tell me basic stuff like what day it was. He stayed in the back with her, doing his best to keep her calm and awake. To keep her talking, he asked her if she went to church that morning and she said she had. So the rest of the time we just spent talking about the Lord, he said. When ofcials arrived, they used the jaws of life to get grandma out of the car. The whole ordeal took no more than 30 minutes, he said. He asked the police if they needed to take a statement from him or if he was free to leave. They asked him if he saw the actual accident, and he said he didnt, so they told him he was free to go. It was time for me to leave, he said. Taylor got back in his car, made a right-hand turn and headed home to Valdosta. On the way home, his wife, Angel, just looked at him. She just asked me, How can you do that? I told her its just a reaction. I aint really nobody. Its just years of train ing, Taylor said. When you come across something like that, you just do what has to be done. rfnrftfftb rr bfb

SEE SCALLOPS, PAGE 8A It is the second week in July and the scallops are getting much harder to nd around Steinhatchee. I was in the mood for scallops Sun day, so I decided to join the masses and try my luck at nding some. My buddy and I were able to nd nearly our limit, but it took sever al stops and quite a bit of swimming. I went north of Steinhatchee, and I got sim ilar reports from friends of mine who went south. The scallops are there, but it is not as easy to nd them as it was at the start of the season. Many new laws went into effect last week on July 1. I bet most people dont know about them. I feel like Florida should do a better job of letting its residents know about new laws before they will take effect. The state should rent sev eral billboards and buy some TV ads to let folks know how the legislatures actions will affect everyone. Since I dont think we will ever see a billboard or commercial about new laws taking effect, I will let you know about some of these new laws. The legislature nally did something to try and slow down the opioid crisis that is killing around 16 Floridians every day. Almost every one will now only be allowed a three-day supply of painkillers. I am not sure if inconveniencing everyone who needs painkillers is the answer, but it will certainly make opioids harder to ob tain. We will have to wait and see if our death rate does go down after the law has been in place for a while. It will now also be very easy to get a voucher to send your son or daughter to private school. All your child will have to do is say that some one is bullying them at their public school. Thats it. They will not have to prove it or any thing. I have long suspected that the legislature wants to send nearly all Florida students to a pri vate school and close down the public schools. This new law will certainly help them achieve that goal. The Majory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act will require every school in Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf The Canadian government, lining the pockets of its dairy producers, imposes high tariffs on American dairy imports. That forces Canadi ans to pay higher prices for dairy products. For example, Canadians pay $5.24 for a 10.5-ounce block of cheddar. In Washington, D.C., that same amount of cheddar sells for $3.64. Canadians pay $3.99 for a 1-pound container of yogurt. In Washington, D.C., you can get near ly twice as much yogurt for a little more than $4. Its clear that the Canadian governments tariffs screw its citizens by forcing them to pay higher prices for dairy products. What should the U.S. response be to Canadas screwing its citizens? If you were in the Trump administration, you might propose imposing tariffs on soft wood products that Americans import from Canada in other words, retali ate against Canada by screwing American citizens. Cana dian lumber such as that from pine, spruce and r trees is used in U.S. homebuilding. Guess what tariffs on Canadian lumber do to home prices. If you answered that they raise the cost and American homebuyers are forced to pay higher prices, go to the head of the class. This retaliation policy is both cruel and not very smart. Its as if you and I were in a rowboat out at sea and I shot a hole in my end of the boat. What should be your response? If you were Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross or Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, you might advise retaliating by shooting a hole in your end of the boat. If I were president, Id try to persuade ofcials of other countries not to serve special producer interests by forcing their citizens to pay higher prices. But if they insisted, Id say, Go ahead, but Ill be damned if Ill do the same to Americans! The ruse used to promote producer interests through tariff policy is concern about our large trade decit. Its true that we have a large current account trade decit. However, thats matched exactly by a very large capital account surplus. Translated, that means Americans buy more goods from other countries than they buy from us; thats our current account decit. But other countries nd our investment climate attractive and invest more in the U.S. than we invest in other countries; thats our capital account surplus. Have you ever wondered why foreigners are willing to invest far more money in Texas and California than they are willing to invest in Argentina and Venezuela? Do you think its because they like North Americans better than they like South Americans? No. Weve always had an attractive investment climate, and weve had current account decits and capital account surpluses throughout most of our nations history (http://tinyurl.com/jczqrhu). In fact, the only time we had a sustained current account trade surplus was during the Great Depression, when we had a surplus in nine out of 10 years, with 1936 being the lone exception. Lets delve a bit into the politics of trade tariffs. Whom do we see spending the most resources lobbying for tar iffs on foreign steel and aluminum? Is it American users of steel and aluminum, such as Harley-Davidson and John Deere? Or is it United States Steel Corp. and Alcoa? Of course its U.S. Steel and Alcoa. They benet from tariffs by being able to sell their products at higher prices. Har ley-Davidson and John Deere lose by having to pay high er prices for their inputs, steel and aluminum, and their customers lose by having to pay higher product prices. Theres a lot of nonsense talk about international trade, which some dene as one countrys trading with another. When an American purchases a Mercedes, it does not represent the U.S. Congress trading with the German Bundestag. It represents an American citizens engaging in peaceable, voluntary exchange, through intermediaries, with a German auto producer.

JULY 11 & 12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7A Life in White Springs The global events of the week are all overshadowed by the plight of the young boys in Thailand being stranded in a cave. As I go to press, some of the boys have been rescued and I hope and pray for a positive outcome. The underlying cause for celebration is the way the world has come together. The problem is obvious, the government and experts and scien tists have quickly come together with a plan and quickly and bravely committed to it. This should not be so remarkable, but it is because, sadly enough the world doesnt always come together for children suffering from isolation, hunger and bad decisions. We wish it would and it is en couraging when it does. It is good to see people come together because as Lyndon B. Johnson said, There are no problems we cannot solve together and very few that we can solve by ourselves. We just have to keep working together to get bet ter at solving problems together. And the place to be most effective is at the local level! Speaking of working for our kids at the local level, you can do that this Fri day and have fun while youre at it! The Hamilton County Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Coalition is pleased to announce it will bring its Friday Night Done Right event to White Springs this Friday, July 13. It will be held from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. at Ogburn Field. This event is to show youth that there are fun ways to have a Friday night without drugs, alco hol and tobacco. The event is lled with games, a video game truck, and a bounce house. Food, drinks and sweet treats will be provided for all who attend, and all for free. For adults who attend, we have our partners from the Health De partment, Another Way, a CPR clinic, and the opportunity to register to vote and to sign up for insurance. And there are prizes being given away! Thanks to the events wonderful sponsors, such as the Board of County Commis sioners, the Town of White Springs, the Hamilton County High School SWAT club, and the Speights, there are wonder ful prizes that will be given away includ ing two at screen TVs, a set of tennis rackets and balls, footballs, basketballs, board games, cash, dolls, and headphones. In case of rain, the event will be moved to the Nature and Tourism center. Tobacco takes a huge toll on all our communities, and we need your support to make a dif ference. It would be nice if the merchants in town could get behind this anti-smok ing effort and take down their outside cigarette advertising signs that the kids can see. Things have been busy over at Big Shoals State Park. The blue blazed hiking trail on the Columbia County side of Big Shoals is now part of the Florida National Scenic Trail with orange blazes. Through cooperation with multiple agencies, vol unteers, and private landowners, this new section of trail eliminates 5 miles of road walk and adds 3 new miles of trail be tween the Osceola National Forest and the Town of White Springs. A ribbon cutting ceremony recently marked the ofcial opening of the reroute. Almost 40 people attended, including representatives from the Florida Trail Association, Florida Park Service, Suwannee River Water Manage ment, US Forest Service, and the Town of White Springs.

JULY 11 & 12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A Around the Banks Surviving the Dog Days of summer Years ago when I taught school, I knew when I entered the classroom that if I didnt know the answer to a ques tion asked by a student, I didnt pretend. I taught middle school for a number of years, and, trust me, they will nd you out. Fairly often I would say I dont know the answer to that question, but lets research it together and see if we can nd out the answer. Many times the student or students found the answer to the question before I did. We both learned something in the process. This leads me to a small confession, last weeks article about the Fourth of July was a combination of the Old and the New. I confess I used part of an article I wrote in 2015, and I also confess I didnt it edit it quite thorough ly enough. I did know that the nation celebrated its nd Birthday on July 4, 2018, not its 239th. It celebrated that three years ago. The United States turned 242, as my old math teacher, the late Mr. Clayton McDufe would say, and thats 242 in all parts of Florida and MOST of Georgia. It was my mistake, and I apologize for my error. Next time, I will try and be more careful. I want to emphasize the word TRY. It is the time of the year when the mercury soars to dizzying heights, when its past 90 degrees before noon and when you get a breath of air you steal it. The Old Farmers Almanac de clared the 40 days from July 3 until Aug. 11, as Dog Days. The Dog Days of summer. The belief and the setting aside of Dog Days goes back to the days of the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks. Dog Days are named as such because of the heliacal rising of Canis Major, the Dog Star, which, combined with the heat of the sun, produces the most sultry, hot and downright uncomfortable time in the Northern Hemisphere. There are several old folk sayings and superstitions that are associated with Dog Days. Here are few of them: likely to go mad during Dog Days. This may have been associated with a day and time before the rabies shots. I dont know. wounds take longer to heal during Dog Days. during Dog Days and there is a marked increase in the number of violent crimes. Days than other times of the year. I dont know how many of these su perstitions bear any credence, but I do know the part about the heat. It is upon us and it is reasonable that it can make people more irritable. Here in our beloved home Around the Banks of the Suwannee, we are the fortunate beneciaries of many refreshing and invigorating streams, rivers and lakes where one can refresh in waters of several springs as clear and blue as a Maxeld Parrish painting. In the Hamilton, Suwannee and Madison County areas, we are blessed to have Blue Springs, Little River Springs, Roy al Springs, Suwannee Springs, Charles Springs, Peacock Springs, Falmouth, the Suwannee River, the Ichetucknee River and many others. Truly the heat of the summer has been made more bearable by these refreshing bodies of water, and we can thank God for that. He never gives us a burden without a blessing. In fact, blessings far exceed burdens in most cases. When I think of water, bot tled water, I remember when I served on the Florida Folklife Council from 19962001. Once we heard an address given by a gentleman from one of New York Citys largest advertisement rms. His job was to predict trends of what con sumers were likely to purchase. His rm predicted the trend for Americans to purchase SUV vehicles, gourmet coffee and bottled water. Now, during my childhood and into my adulthood, when I was, to coin a good old north Florida expression,good and grown and shaving, if anyone had told me that one day we would one day purchase bottled water by the gallons and thousands of gallons, I would have rolled my eyes and may have laughed. I was wrong. Yet, I can remember as a child when I would see folks pulling their little red wagons with glass gallon jugs down to the spring house in White Springs, and lling those jugs and taking them home full of spring water to consume. My maternal grandparents did the same thing when we would go swimming at Suwannee Springs near Live Oak. In the early days when White Springs, White Sulphur Springs, Florida, was THE ma jor tourist resort in the state of Florida, there was a bottling company for the spring water. If those folks knew what we know now. Time is a fortune teller and hindsight is 20-20. The Dog Days of summer are upon us, no question about it and if we stay in our part of the world, we have no choice other than to live with the heat associated with Dog Days. I am thankful for the convenience and the comfort of air conditioning. It does make the heat more bearable. Before signing off this week, I wish to pay tribute to a gentleman who was an outstanding citizen of Hamilton County: Mr. Maceo Howell. Maceo Howell served, let me empha size the word served children in his calling as an outstanding educator in Hamilton and Madison counties. Maceo didnt just talk the talk. He walked the walk. There is a poem that makes me think of Maceo Howell, and I will share it this week. I hope his dear wife, Gwen, and all the family nd comfort in it. Maceo Howell was, indeed, a Builder. The Builder A builder builded a temple. He wrought it with grace and skill; Pillars and groins and arches All fashioned to work his will. Men said, as they saw its beauty, It shall never know decay. Great is thy skill, O Builder! Thy fame shall endure for aye. A teacher builded a temple With loving and innite care, Planning each arch with patience, Laying each stone with prayer. None praised his unceasing efforts. None knew of his wondrous plan, For the temple the teacher builded Was unseen by the eyes of man. Gone is the builders temple, Crumbled into the dust. Low lies each stately pillar, Food for consuming rust. But the temple the teacher builded Will last while the ages roll, For that beautiful unseen temple Was a childs immortal soul. Author unknown From the Eight Mile Still on the Woodpecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter. rr 114169-1 rfntbtrnft ntnrrn fnrn ntnnfbfn tn bffnrnn fnnnbtn fnrnttnrnntr rtnrnrfbfn nttbnfnrnr nnrrffrfrn rrnnnnnn bnrrnfrnr nnrnnbfrnrbftf ntrnffnntnftnt rbfnbnffbrnt nrrnffb ffnrn ftrnb frnnf rffff frfn brntnrrrrntr rrfrffbf nbnnn fnn rrntbrntrrf brntbtrfrffrfrrb rfrfnnntnnnn ntnfnnffrrf rfnfnntfnnn bnffttntf brntfrrfrfnf nntfttnnnbnff rrrrrnn rfrfnnntr rrftfrrf rfnfnntHAMILTON COUNTY FIRST PUBLIC HEARING NOTICEEQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYMENT, HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE AND FAIR HOUSING JURISDICTION.

This past 4th of July, my husband and I decided to hop into the car and take a drive over to Keaton Beach. Many folks have mentioned that its one of the closest beaches so we thought we would check it out for our selves. We are glad we did. There were very few people there when we arrived so I was able to get some great photos and videos for my Beach Lovers community. Living a healthy lifestyle and time spent relax ing on the beach go hand in hand. Af ter spending a couple of hours on the beach relaxing and looking around the area, it was time to mosey back home. Sometimes I wonder about how the GPS routes because we were on some serious back roads heading into Su wannee County. The good thing about visiting places you have never been be fore is that you find new places along the way. Thats exactly what happened when we found Peacock Springs State Park. We spotted the sign, hit the brakes, and made a right into the park in search of the springs. Let me tell you, I should have been wearing my sports bra be cause the road into the springs was seriously bumpy. Around turn after turn, bumping along and right as we start to wonder where exactly we are going, we come to a clearing with a small parking lot. What is that my eyes see? One of the most gorgeous springs Ive yet to visit in Suwannee County. Enjoying the springs that day was a small family and a few divers. I was surprised that this beautiful gem had fewer than eight people there on the 4th of July. This spur of the moment right turn got me to thinking about how living a healthy lifestyle is a journey. Yes, there will be bumps in the road. Yes, there will be hard right and left turns. But the reward at the end of reaching your goal will be worth all the ups and downs youll experience along the way. Small changes can add up to big results. If you havent started your healthy lifestyle journey yet, here are a few tips to get you moving: start. Some people like to start new things at the begin ning of the week on a Monday after all new day, new week. If that doesnt work for you, choose another day. week. As an example, the first week, focus on eating clean for 80 percent of your meals or that you will replace one beverage a day with water. When the next week arrives, choose your next goal to focus on such as exercising three times a week. when we decided to take that right turn into Peacock Springs, choose another way to or from work, grocery store or any other errand you may run. Why? When we do the same things over and over, it becomes monotonous. Some thing as simple as a change in what we see each week can be uplifting. your age, social activities not only keeps a smile on your face, it keeps your brain active. If you make one healthy change each week, imagine how far along your healthy lifestyle journey you will be in one year. Have an amazing week.

JULY 11 & 12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A Healthy Living Enjoy the journey to a healthier lifestyle Three years ago. I had a conversation recently with some one who shared with me the last time she could actually remember feeling content was three years ago. Our conversation took another direction, but later I couldnt help but wonder what was going on in her life during that time to cause it to stand out as a time of contentment. I have continued to roll this around in my mind and so I want to ask you: When is the last time you remember feeling content, a contentment that was tangible enough to make you say or at least think, I am really okay with life right now. My next question is this: what were the circumstances that surrounded your state of contentment? Was everything going well for that season? Bills all paid, kids all healthy, and no major catastrophes? Maybe you were even on vacation, sitting at the beach with a whole week ahead of you and thinking, Ah, now this is life. If I could If Im honest, this has been my experi ence, and Im willing to bet yours as well. However, the Bible offers a fresh perspec tive on the reality of true contentment. In Philippians 4:11-12, the Apostle Paul be comes our mentor in this lesson: for I have learned to be content, whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well-fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. If you investigate the context of this verse, the rst thing that we realize is that Pauls contentment was not dependent on circumstances, at least not external ones. He was sitting in prison as he penned these detail, lets look at the denition of con tentment for a little insight. Websters dic tionary says that content is an adjective meaning to appease the desires of; to limit oneself in requirements, desires and ac tions. This denition opposes our assump tion that contentment is only possible if everything is going well. It also stands in contrast to a passive stance of just deciding that nothing is worth opposing. Even a quick glimpse into Pauls life will tell us that was not This denition gives us a vital approach to eshing out life as a Christian. In our determination to live within the will of God, we are called to limit ourselves, especially our desires and actions, to those things that are pleasing to God. (Desiring something is not a sign that it is okay with God. We need to consult His Word to explains: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understand ing, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Obedience to God will result in content ment, no matter the circumstances. Paul had this gured out, but notice that two times he mentions learning how to be con tent. Biblical contentment is not natural. In fact, left unchecked, our sin nature reeks of discontentment. Understand that limiting ourselves to Gods plan for our lives will not always be easy, but it will be worth it. And we can learn to be content with that, because our hearts really do matter.

JULY 11 & 12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 12A State & Region rfff derrek.vaughn@ganews.com THOMASVILLE, Ga. William Cason Jr. sits behind bars at the Thomas County Jail. He was denied bond. That hurts, he said. His father is one of the jailers. That may hurt even more. Cason understands why bond was denied but that doesnt change the fact that he re mains behind bars. He had been released from jail in Febru ary after serving time for credit card fraud and burglary. He was charged with burglary again in June and denied bond. This is not my rst trip, Cason said in a jail interview. Cason is accused of entering storage units, leading to his June arrest. He hopes a court will send him to a pro gram to help him get a job. Cason said his drug use began with mari juana, then cocaine. Now, its spice, he said. He blames his crimes on drug use. This was my third felony, Cason said. There are guys back there whove got mul tiple felonies and get bond. Making Bail In Georgia, state law requires that some one who is arrested and taken to jail must receive a rst appearance hearing within 48 to 72 hours. Whiteld County Magistrate Judge Gayle Gazaway said magistrate judges can set bonds at rst appearance hearings unless the person is charged with one of Georgias Seven Deadly Sins: murder, voluntary manslaughter, rape, aggravated sodomy, ag gravated child molestation, aggravated sex ual battery or armed robbery with a rearm. We also cant set bond in any case where a person is on probation or parole and has been charged with a felony, Gaza way said. In those cases, the defendant is sent to a superior court judge. If someone is out on bond and charged with a felony, we will also send that to superior court. Also, in cases of a violent crime, and there is a question of the safety of the vic tim, we will defer the bond to superior court to give the victim-witness advocate in the district attorneys ofce time to talk to the victim and make sure the victims safety is taken into account. Gazaway said the magistrate court takes into account a defendants ability to pay in setting bond. We have really good rapport with our booking staff. They will call and text me, and the other judges, and say, Weve got somebody here on tickets or misdemeanor charges and theres no way they can make a bond. We cant punish them for being poor, she said. Just this morning, it was my turn for rst appearances, and they con tacted me and said we had one in the jail on probate tickets, trafc tickets and he cant make a bond. So I gave him an OR (release on own recognizance). Gazaway said the purpose of bond is not punishment. When that person comes to my court, hes still considered innocent of the charges against him, she said. What I have to ren der judgment on is how likely is that person to return to court. a suspect or their friends and family cannot afford bond, many suspects turn to local bondsmen for a loan to temporarily secure their freedom. Homer Butler of Valdosta has been in the bail-bond business for about 50 years. Butler, who is retired from B&H Bond ing, said he believes bail is a fair system if a person has a fair bondsman. He said if everyone was allowed to sign their own bond, a city or county would need more law enforcement than people to catch everyone not showing up at court. A good bondsman knows how to make sure people show up to court. They know how to judge a person and the persons family to see if they are the type to show up or run off, he said. They also know the system. Georgia law allows bondsmen to charge up to 15 percent of the bail amount. Theres a young kid that Im on his bond for murder, Butler said. Ive been on the bond for two years. He has not even been indicted. His bond was $100,000. I charged him $12,000 and hes done paid it off. Butler said he knows the kid is most likely not guilty of murder, which is why he is condent holding his bond so long as he pays it off and doesnt get into trouble. He said he knows the kids family and believes the police like to charge as many people with a crime as they can to use as leverage. Theres no reason for him to sit in jail, Butler said. If there was strong evidence against him, he would have been indicted. Thats why Im comfortable with it. Don Johnson, the owner of Don John son Bonding Company in Milledgeville, has been in the business for 35 years. Ive posted bail for everything from disorderly conduct to murder. We dont have a minimum amount; I paid a bond this morning for $25, Johnson said. While many laws and his business prot margin have changed drastically since the day he rst opened, Johnson said the system is effective at letting only the most deserving suspects walk free before their trials. I cant think of anything about it I would change, he said. Bondsman Gary Brinson, who works in We check the jail roster daily, Jones said. If someone has been in jail for more than a couple of days on a pre-set misde meanor bond, we get them in front of a judge to determine if the bond needs to be lowered or the inmate released. Capt. Wesley Lynch, who oversees de tentions for the Whiteld County Sheriffs Ofce, said, In regards to being respon sive to the needs of people who are low income, the current system seems to be more responsive than it ever has been. At the local level, at least, we are seeing more people that cant afford a bond being able to get own-recognizance bonds, he said. We are seeing fewer people in jail for long periods who have low bonds. The courts do a pretty good job of monitoring that. However, with the number of individu als out on bond, there are those who slip through the cracks. Tell you a horror story about a Hispan ic fella, bondsman Homer Butler said. He had been in jail for seven months for a suspended license. A suspended li cense. He got lost in the system. At some point, they pulled him out of the hole and them to hold someone in jail for 90 days on a $100 bond. It would cost them $4,500 to house the person when they could let them out on their own recogni zance. He said he thinks bail is fair. He doesnt know how it could be improved, but the system has to be run with common sense and compassion. Youve got to use common sense to run a sheriffs department, Paulk said. If you see a person that you feel is worthy of their word and you know their family and you know where they work, you can make some exceptions and help them. Es pecially, if you get someone in jail whos had a good job for 20 years, you try to work some things out so he can at least get back to work. You know that person isnt leaving. However, in recent years there has been a call by some to reform the bail system or to abolish cash-bail altogether. They argue that bail creates inequality in the system by affecting the poor more than those with means to post bail. That partly led to legislation this year allowing Georgia judges leeway when setting bail for people charged with minor offenses. The move was meant to keep poor defendants out of local jails. The legislation provided an alternative for people charged with misdemeanor crimes who cannot afford a cash bond or the services of a bail bondsman. Bail was being set at a nominal amount, but even a nominal amount was beyond their capability of being able to pay, Gov. Nathan Deal said at a signing ceremony earlier this year. So, unfortunately, the system did not allow for many options, Deal said. And some of these individuals sat in jail cells for a very long period of time. The new law requires judges to consid er a persons nancial means when deter mining bail, and it allows for community service, job training or a GED program to be ordered as a condition of probation. And it lets law-enforcement ofcers issue citations for minor offenses instead of making an arrest. Sam Dennis said he believes bail has not been equitable. It only serves to punish poor people and clog up our jails, said Dennis, a de fense attorney in Valdosta. Its not that everyone should just be let out and set free. They would still go through the same process, just without that one piece. There is no reason to have the money piece. Dennis also said there is no credible research that suggests a money-based bail system has any impact on failure to ap pear rates. In jurisdictions like Chicago, where cash bail was eliminated willingly, there has been no surge in FTAs. The coun ty has an FTA rate of approximately 6 percent for misdemeanors and felonies, Dennis said. There is a myth he said that money bail is the only way to make sure people come to court, but studies show improving court notice procedures such as sending text re minders or mailing an additional notice to appear in court are more effective. Every human being who the govern ment suggests has committed a crime is innocent (until proven guilty). So what bail does is require people to go to jail who are legally innocent, Dennis said. Just because a person is poor doesnt mean they should be punished before see ing trial. The SunLight Project team of journalists who contributed to this report includes Derrek Vaughn, Thomas Lynn, Kevin Hall, Patti Dozier and Will Woolever. ntbtbbnbtb rfrntbrtrfrtt btffrttfrrfrrtrt rrrttfrrfrrt ntbtn bntbb ffrfrttrft ffrf fr rtfrrrtrr Meet the Bondsman Magistrate judges will normally set a price for suspected offenders to buy their freedom in the weeks preceding their trial.

Somebody has to be in charge, and the sheriff, he is the highest law-enforcement ofcer in a county, Brinson said. Brinson charges a 15 percent non-re fundable bond fee that may be paid with property, cash or even a car title. Ive taken everything but their rst born as collateral, said Brinson, who is working with second generations of fami lies in supplying bonds. I try to treat people with respect, Brinson said. Communication is key to understanding their situation and trying to keep the family together. No Bond When a bond cant be paid or a person charged has no bond set, they remain in jail until their court date. Thomas County Sheriffs Ofce Capt.

When he got to court, they decided his time already served wasnt enough and ned him $1,600. The man said, No. I feel like Ive paid it, Butler said. And, you know what, I agree with him, he said. They didnt force him to pay it. They gave him a bond and hes out right now. Not Forgotten Southern Circuit Judge Jim Tunison said there are many judicial, police and administrative resources dedicated to making sure people arent arrested and forgotten about in jail. He said Lowndes County Sheriff Ash ley Paulk looks at the county jail roster every day and thinks about how to reduce the population. If you could track the numbers over the last couple of years, you can see that our jail population has come down, Tuni son said. There are a lot of resources looking to get people out of jail or, if they are in jail, they are in there for a specic reason. Paulk said it doesnt make sense for

Jones, 22, drove the No. 20 buyatoy ota.com Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota to victory, earning a spot in the Monster Energy Series playoffs that are contest ed over the last 10 races of the 36-race season. He edged the reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr. (No. 78 Bass Pro Shops/5-hour Energy Toyota) by .125 seconds. Due to the two overtimes, the race, scheduled for 160 laps, was ex tended to 168 laps. That was something else, said Jones, who led one lap the nal one. I thought we were out of it but then we were right back in it. My rst Cup win, my rst Daytona win, my rst super speedway win. What an awesome day. A series of late-race incidents eventu ally led to the need for Nascar Overtime. It started on a Lap 155 restart after a caution period; one lap later, a multi-car incident in Turn 3 brought the caution out again. The ensuing clean-up resulted in the rst OT a two-lap green/ white/checkered nish. Then, another accident on the frontstretch occurred prior to the white ag (start of the last lap), meaning there would be a second attempt at OT. On the Lap 167 restart, Truex held the lead, with Jones and Kasey Kahne (No. 95 Thorne Wellness Chevrolet) running 2-3. Jones was able to get by Truex, who has yet to win a restric tor-plate race in the Monster Energy Series. Ive never been that good on super speedways and never thought this was our shot to win, Jones said. But to get here tonight, thats pretty awesome. Its our rst win and not much has felt better than this one. The race was divided into three stag es. The rst two stages were 40 laps rfnftbbfbbfbr fbf nrrnftf tbbfrrrbfr SEE NASCAR, PAGE 3B

JULY 11 & 12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 3B apiece with a nal stage of 80 laps. Nascar awards valuable extra points that count in the season-long series championship battle to the top-10 nishers in each of a races rst two stages. Stage 1 was dominated early by polesitter Chase Elliott (No. 9 Hooters Chevrolet) who led the rst 10 laps. But the stage was won by the defend ing Coke Zero Sugar 400 champion, Ricky Sten house Jr. (No. 17 Fifth Third Bank Ford) who led Laps 13-40. Stage 2 featured the nights rst three incidents with the second, on Lap 54, involving 24 cars in cluding Elliott and former Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski (No. 2 Stars, Stripes and Lites Ford). Keselowski started the fracas, getting sideways in the middle of a tight-run ning pack after slight contact from behind, from Stenhouses car. Thus ended Elliotts chances of a breakthrough, rst Monster Energy Se ries victory. The two-time DAYTONA 500 polesitter ended up with a disap pointing 34th-place result. On Lap 65, a Turn 4 accident sidelined more contenders, such as anoth er former series champion, Kyle Busch (No. 18 In terstate Batteries Toyota), who went hard into the wall after another Sten house tap. Stenhouse went on to win Stage 2. Stenhouse appeared to have perhaps the strongest car still running un til Lap 125 when Kyle Larson (No. 42 Credit One Bank Chevrolet) lost control and spun directly in front of Stenhouses Ford. Larson left the race, while Stenhouse got some repairs and got back onto the race track. Stenhouse raced his way back into the top 10 but a spinout on Lap 149 led to a 17thplace nish.

CNHI Sports The morning of May 14 started like any other for Jake Williams at Sportradar U.S. Hours after the U.S. Supreme Court decision that opened the door to sports gambling nationwide, he felt like a fourth-round National Football League draft pick happy for the news yet aware of the long and uncer tain road ahead. Williams is the general counsel for the U.S. branch of Sportradar, a European-based company that provides sports data to bookmakers, sports federations and media companies. He called the ruling a landmark moment for our business. It was really a moment where we realized everything has changed, and its going to be an interesting six to 12 months coming up and a scramble a mad scramble, he said. That scramble has states, sports leagues and some busi nesses racing to grab a seat at the table, while the rest of the country ponders what happens next. Why the hurry? Billions of dollars are up for grabs. And states want a sizable share of the pot to help nance government. The American Gaming Association estimates about $150 billion is illegally wagered on sports each year in the U.S. In 2017, bettors placed $4.7 billion on the Super Bowl, according to the associations estimates, with a whopping 97 percent of that waged illegally. The group said $10 billion in illegal betting occurred in March on the NCAA Basketball Tournament. The U.S. market, besides China, is probably the big gest untapped market in the world, Williams said. Rush to start The Supreme Court ruling that declared a 1992 law the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act unconstitutional has freed states to establish legal bet ting operations in search of a potential bonanza in new revenue. Delaware and New Jersey have already launched legal betting operations. Mississippi, West Virginia and Rhode Island are positioned to soon follow. Lawmakers from many other states are in a rush to get started. Everyone is going to eat our lunch if New York does not act soon, said state Sen. John Boracic, chairman of the New York Senate Racing, Gaming and Wagering Committee. Meanwhile, Congress may also play a role. Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, an original sponsor of the over turned law, has said he will unveil a proposal to establish minimum standards targeting issues such as underage gambling and the participation of players, referees and coaches. Congress may also be the professional sports leagues best shot at receiving gambling proceeds. What Congress really needs to do is go in and create some uniformity between the scattered gaming laws that are out there so that states really know what they can and cant do, said Steven Silver, an attorney who is teaching a class on sports betting law this fall at the University of Maine. A few days after the Supreme Court ruling, the NCAA made clear in a statement from President Mark Emmert that it favors federal regulation. While we recognize the critical role of state govern ments, strong federal standards are necessary to safeguard the integrity of college sports and the athletes who play these games at all levels, Emmert said. Whos next? For nearly 30 years, Nevada dominated legal sports gambling as the only state to allow it. Last year alone, Nevadas sports books paid $248 mil lion in winnings, proting 5.1 percent on a record $4.8 billion in wagers, according to the Nevada Gaming Con trol Board. That stranglehold, at least part of it, changed for good in early June when Delaware and New Jersey followed the court ruling to become the rst states to open up their doors for sports gambling. Mississippi and West Virginia approved sports gam bling regulations June 21, and Rhode Island joined the game June 22. Mississippi can implement sports gam bling 30 days from the bills signing, while West Virginia hopes to be up and running by football season, West Vir ginia Lottery Commissioner Alan Larrick told reporters. Connecticut passed legislation last year, and an addi tional 14 states have recently introduced sports gambling legislation, according to an ESPN tracker. Its going to be a revenue producer for the casinos, Larrick said. It will bring more people to the casinos who will spend more nights there, purchase more meals and drinks there, and play more table games while there. Sara Slane, senior vice president of public affairs at the American Gaming Association, predicts a dozen states will implement sports betting by next year. Five years from now, she expects the number to bal loon to 30, with the sports gambling marketplace eventu ally mirroring the 40-plus states currently offering other forms of gaming. Based on economic projections, the association antici pates the evolving sports market could be similar to that of Vegas an $8.5 billion industry. Thats certainly going to take years to get up and run ning in each state, and it depends on the business model and the policy in place, tax rate and the platforms that are offered to sports book operators, Slane said. But its certainly a great opportunity for the industry to take advantage of. Taxes and fees Of the two new betting states, the Delaware Lottery regulates sports books at three casinos. New Jerseys Di vision of Gaming Enforcement oversees that states sports betting. New Jerseys law allows bets in person, and soon online, at casinos and racetracks. Gross revenue from onsite wagers are taxed at 8.5 percent. Winnings from on line bets, which can be placed anywhere in the state, will be taxed at 13 percent. Additionally, the law allows a 1.25 percent local tax to support state licensed horse racetracks. Not all states will dabble in the online and mobile phone betting market. Rhode Island and Delaware dont have those options. Mississippis proposed regulations restrict mobile gaming to casinos. Williams said he thinks states will adjust their stances after a teething period. Thats the norm globally. We expect that to happen here as well, he said of mobile and online gaming, not ing expansive markets in Europe and Asia. Its sort of a growing pains period where getting that understanding of thats what happens and thats what people want and what people will want. That needs to be part of the legal and regulated framework. Tax rates vary from Nevadas 6.75 percent of gross gaming wins (the amount casinos keep after paying out winnings) up to 51 percent in the proposed Rhode Island law. Mississippi and West Virginia feature taxes of 12 per cent and 10 percent, respectively, on adjusted gross sports wagering receipts (dened as receipts minus winnings paid to bettors) once their sports books open. New York has proposed an 8.25 percent fee. Pennsyl vanias proposal would include a sports wagering license fee of $10 million, with a 34 percent tax rate on winnings. A proposed bill in Kentucky calls for a 3 percent excise tax on the handle (total amount wagered). Slane said 6 to 15 percent is a reasonable tax rate, but anything higher is not advantageous to the legal sports gambling market. Big money Regardless of regulation, theres no overstating the hype surrounding sports gambling. Kenny White, a longtime Las Vegas oddsmaker, now vice president of data integrity at Don Best Sports, said a Mississippi casino recently told him it received 200 re sumes for a sports book directors job. But between tax rates and the risk of starting a sports book White said each should have a bond and the money on hand to safeguard against poor betting days an initial venture into sports gambling for some may not be as rosy as it seems. Theyve just heard these large numbers being thrown around, said White, who also consults for SportsLine, a division of CBS Sports. They start hearing billions, and they start thinking this is such a tremendous industry. The bottom line is the state holds a percent, year in and year out. If youre not going to do a lot of volume, holding a percent is not going to make you a lot of money. For example, in Delaware, the states sports betting contractor, Scientic Games, receives a 15.66 percent cut after winners are paid, and the state takes half of the re maining money, with 40 percent to the casino. Delaware had $322,135 in sports bets on opening day, ESPN reported. That averages out to $117.6 million over the course of a year. Assuming 5 percent of wagers are held (percentage of money gambled that a sports book keeps as revenue) like in Nevada, Delawares cut could fall somewhere in the $2.5 million range. Casinos would end up with about $2 million. Pro leagues With states legislating their take, some professional sports leagues and players want a share, too. Sports betting isnt as lucrative as table games like craps, roulette or baccarat recent Gaming Association data from 2016 shows consumer spending on gaming at commercial casinos reached a record $38.96 billion but Nevadas 2017 gures show theres revenue to gain as states expand gambling. Revenue from basketball and football wagers totaled $164 million, according to the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Can I get rich off that? joked New England defensive back Devin McCourty, who serves as the Patriots player representative for the NFL Players Association. Not exactly. But depending on the state, some lawmak ers with backing from leagues like the NBA and MLB have proposed integrity fees (New York uses the term royalty fee). The NFL and NCAA dont support such a fee. The NHL, meanwhile, prefers not to use the word integrity, yet believes it deserves a cut based on intellectual prop erty. Proposed laws in New York, Indiana, Illinois and Kansas have built-in fees ranging from .20 percent to 1 percent. In theory, the fee from the handle (total amount wa gered) would help organizations nance efforts to prevent corruption. Not everyone is on board, though. The Gaming Association wants to work with the leagues, but Slane made clear that it doesnt support an integrity fee, adding business decisions and deals should be done through private contracts and not statutory obli gations. The rationale? A 1 percent fee is not really 1 percent, Slane said. The NBA and MLB want a 1 percent cut of wagers a $100 bet would produce $1 for the leagues. However, sports books generally win about 5 percent of wagers (5.11 percent in Nevada in 2017), thus a $100 bet, in this example, would only provide $5 in revenue to the casino, and the leagues cut of that would amount to 20 percent. When we talk about having sustainable business models in place in order to be able to compete with the illegal market, if you add an additional 20 percent tax off the top, thats just not going to work, Slane said. The debate has also made its way to college athlet ics. West Virginia University and Marshall University are vying for a .25 percent integrity fee for all in-state bets wagered on their schools. West Virginia Athletic Director Shane Lyons said funds would be used to hire additional staff and edu cate players on the pitfalls of gambling. There have been at least a half dozen high-prole point-shaving scandals in NCAA history, although one former gambler thinks times may have changed with more players courting professional aspirations. Am I going to piss that away because somebodys going to give me $2,000 to not win by 20, but to only win by 15? said Tim Otteman, an assistant professor at Central Michigan University who has researched gambling tendencies. Those are tough stories to sell in todays day and age to student athletes unless you have something over them. Bets on the future Experts say its hard to predict what the marketplace for sports gambling will look like in 10 years. Daily fantasy sports giants DraftKings and FanDuel have reached on-site deals to offer sports gambling DraftKings with New Jerseys Resorts Casino and Fan Duel with New Jerseys Meadowlands Racetrack and New Yorks Tioga Downs. Mobile, online and live in-game betting are gaining popularity. Iowa State Athletic Director Jamie Pollard sees a day where kiosks are in stadiums for fans to place bets. The excitement is clear. Others arent so thrilled. The multibillion-dollar industry has its downfalls, according to the National Council on Problem Gam bling. It said approximately 2 percent (5 million) of U.S. adults experience gambling problems. Keith Whyte, executive director of the council, fears not only more problem gamblers but also more severe related issues. The council wants the equivalent of 1 percent of rev enue from legalized sports betting to be dedicated to problem gambling services, to help promote responsi ble gambling, although Whyte questioned if states will embrace the proposal. Its left to nonprots like us to try and raise the money to sort of cover the industrys (tail) in all 50 states as they try and expand betting, he said. Unfortunately, its kind of like a race to the bottom to see who can legalize rst and see if you can beat your neighboring state to the game. Its not leading to a lot of policy outcomes.

JULY 11 & 12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7B FAMILY FEATURES Ask nearly any person about his or her dream trip and watch a smile appear as the perfect personal excursion is described. Now, ask why the trip has yet to happen, and time and money will be the likely culprits. The misconceived notions that may be holding you back from traveling can feel especially exacerbated during busy seasons when travel costs rise and coor dinating vacation schedules with coworkers becomes a challenge. Carving out time and saving funds to make travel possible, even during the busiest travel seasons, can be a challenge. Lee Abbamonte, the youngest person to travel to every country in the world plus the North and South Poles, and Bank of America recommend these tips to travel the world in style. Book Based on Your InterestsOne of the easiest ways to make time for travel is to book based on your likes and hobbies. When you plan a trip around your passions, it helps you prioritize the experience over the cost. a lot of my colleagues made excuses about why they couldnt travel, Abbamonte said. Ive found that booking travel based on your personal interests can help you stay motivated to follow through actually taking the trip. For example, I love watching and playing sports, so I often use that as a reason to travel to various countries. One area you might be passionate about is food. In fact, 23 percent of Americans say they have planned a trip around a culinary experience, according to a Bank of America unique glimpse into a culture. I love attending local food festivals and cultural celebrations, Abbamonte said. Just one day at a food or wine festival can give you a great understanding of an areas culture and people, which is quite literally great food for thought. Have a Credit Card Rewards StrategyEarning points through travel spending is especially popular today. In fact, 65 percent of Americans have a rewards credit card, according to the same Bank of America survey. Yet when it comes time to reap a cards rewards, 55 percent admit they dont have a strategy to maximize points. Abbamonte recommends using a credit card that rewards all your where you spend most. Since traveling and eating out are easily my top two expenses, the Premium Rewards credit card from Bank of America works perfectly for my lifestyle, Abbamonte said. I earn two points for every dollar I spend on travel and dining which works out great to maximize my rewards earnings, plus I earn 1 1/2 points on all of my other purchases. For example, think of it this way: Every time you use your card, you are earning points for your next trip. Even earn points toward a plane ticket.Have a Plan but Be FlexibleTo get the most out of your travel experience, make a general plan for what you want to do. However, be sure to leave time for exploring charming side streets and unexpected surprises. You never know what will catch your eye once you arrive. I often visit multiple countries in one trip, Abbamonte said. While I usually know where I want to travel, I dont always buy my flights between countries beforehand. You may want to adjust how you planned to allocate your time once youre on a trip. Maybe you fall in love with a bed and breakfast, and just cant part ways to catch your flight out of town. Travel shouldnt be a mad dash from destination to destination. Its a time to truly live your best life in a new place. Maximize Financial Rewards banking rewards programs that can help you earn bonus points on your credit card rewards. Sometimes all loyal customer. If you qualify for a banking rewards program, you can really max out on your credit card rewards, Abbamonte said. For example, Bank of America Preferred Rewards clients receive up to a 75 percent bonus on their credit card rewards which means you could earn up to 3 1/2 points per dollar on travel and dining purchases with the Premium Rewards credit card. To maximize rewards, consider layering your airline, hotel, banking and credit card rewards programs together. Abbamonte, for example, hotel loyalty program membership information while booking airline travel and hotels, allowing him to earn on top of the points he receives with his card.

Using a credit card that rewards you for where you spend the most can help pay for upcoming travel. On average, con sumers spent in 2017: $1,771 at restaurants $1,385 on gas $1,347 on airlines $1,050 on hotels
