Bill Nelson visits White Springs jessie.box@ganews.com WHITE SPRINGS U.S. Senator Bill Nelson visited White Springs last week. The White Springs Town Council endorsed Nelson in his bid for re-elec tion. Thank you to everyone that has served our county but you can serve your country in many ways, it doesnt have to necessarily be in the military, Nelson said. As a matter of fact, if you are a teacher I think you do the Lords work. Nelson said he is a product of the public school system. The strength of this county is the broad middle class and you know where that broad middle class got its education, from the public school sys tem, Nelson said. He said the state has been chipping away from the school system funding for several years. He said it will be an issue during this election. Nelson said he has fought to keep from cutting Medicare and Social Se curity. I can tell you as long as I am around theyre not going to cut Medicare and Social Security, Nelson said. You know elections have consequences. Nelson is unopposed in the Demo cratic primary. He will face the winner jessie.box@ganews.com WHITE SPRINGS White Springs resident Joe Grifn in tends to sue the town again. He announced his intention at the July 10 meeting by giving the town 30 days notice. According to the town charter, no suit or action at law shall be instituted against the town unless a written statement is given with the alleged cause of action at least 30 days before the suit of action is instituted. He asked for permission to sue at the Aug. 14 meeting. A month ago I came to you and asked, according to the charter Provision 10.04 to give you 30 days to decide whether you wanted to allow me to le a law suit and your 30 days are up, Grifn said. If you dont give me an answer tonight, I will assume the negative and give me permission to le the lawsuit. You dont need our approval to le a lawsuit, councilman Rhett Bullard said. If you are asking for our approval to do so I am not going to vote to do that. Mayor Spencer Lofton added: I am not giving anyone permission to litigate against us. Since moving to White Springs in 1999, Joe Grif n has led 20 lawsuits against White Springs prior to this suit. Grifn led a complaint on May 23 against Vice Mayor Tonja Brown. The complaint states Brown became a rogue council member after she directed the former code enforcement ofcer to cite a mobile home park for violations. The complaint asks how this request from Brown Grifn plans to sue White Springs mayor, vice mayor jessie.box@ganews.com JASPER The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post #8095 hosted the Nonpartisan Political Rally on Aug. 16. The event was free to the public. The candidates were given three minutes to ad dress the audience. Candidate for state wide and national ofce who spoke include: State Representative District 10 candidates Chuck Brannan, Marc Vann, Ronald W. Williams II, Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson and Fred S. Martin and United State Representative District 5 candidate Virginia Fuller. I offer my candidacy as a continuation of public service that I have always held so important in my life, Brannan said. My campaign is build upon a positive, hopeful, conservative message. Vann wants to help communities grow and im prove, He wants to improve the community. We want our grandchildren to feel like they can come back home and they can have something that gives them an opportunity to succeed and not think they need to be somewhere else, Vann said. I can promise you as your representative, I will do ev erything humanly possible to hep your community grow and improve. Malwitz-Jipson said she has not been a party af liate member for 15 years. jessie.box@ganews.com WHITE SPRINGS White Springs Mayor Spencer Lofton plans to request leasing the South Hamilton Elementary School for $1 a year. At a special meeting on Aug. 7, Lofton presented the idea of a White Springs Town Center, featuring town hall and local businesses being housed in the former elementary school. The police department and utilities department could use the current town hall. Ideas that Lofton had for the ofces in the town center are satellite college courses, food pantry, real estate and certied nursing classes, daycare center and dry cleaner drop off location. Lofton said the center could be used for a huge Wild Azalea Festival. According to Lofton, the average estimated elec tricity cost for 2017 was $1,052.63. He said that by renting out ofce space, the prots would pay for the whole complex. He plans to present the idea to the Hamilton County School Board on Tuesday, Aug. 28 at 4 p.m. We are very interested in having people in our vacant buildings, and if it can help their public, that is what we want to do Superintendent Rex Mitch ell said when asked about the presentation.

Someone said Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and, while that may be true, there are those individuals who have the knack of making the place they live more beautiful. These individuals go about doing what they do and not seeking any reward save the fact they have a true love for the marvelous place we all call home. This past week, I thought of several of these individuals, and I am going to give them some credit because I can in this col umn; not because they asked it of me. Gwyn Harrington, native of Arkansas and owner and proprietor of Gwyns Gifts and Dcor located on Howard Street; US 90 West in Live Oak, Florida. Step into that shop, and if you dont immediately feel a bit better you have a thumping gizzard and not a heart. When I visited not too long ago, she had decorated for autumn, and I can understand. There is a longing in most of us in north central Flor ida who endure the long, hot summer to begin longing for the turning of leaves, the crispness of fall mornings, the fragrance of cinnamon and a spice or fresh apple cake lling the house with the most delicious aroma. We think of colors in the richest jewel tones, orange, bronze, deep red, gold, deep purple, yellow. We begin to notice a change this time of year, and our hearts yearn for that moment that usually occurs in late Septem ber or early October when, upon awakening, we feel it. Of all the seasons of the year here in our beloved homeland, autumn is my favorite. Gwyn Harrington has captured, abso lutely captured, the spirit and essence of autumn in her shop, and its fabulous. I can relate. I have seen home dcor shops in Thomasville, Geor gia, Tallahassee, Florida, and Jacksonville, but her shop equals any of those; and even some I have seen in Charleston and Savan nah, phenomenal. The only thing in this area that ever came close, even close to it was Stephanies in Jasper, Florida. Now Willene Drury could have matched Gwyn and trumped her a bit, and, oh, how we do miss Stephanies in Jasper, Florida, but Mrs. Harrington truly, truly has a treasure trove of beautiful, marvelous gift items, seasonal wreaths, silk owers, linens, cos tume jewelry; marvelous. The Christmas Open House she expertly coordinates, this year, on Sunday, Nov. 4, beginning about 2 p.m. is an event not to be missed. She makes Christmas, Christmas in north Florida; a veritable feast for the eyes, and the fragrance in that store is heavenly. I give her a 15 on a scale from 1 to 10 on offering our part of the world a place of renewal, beauty and warm, generous Southern hospitality which she exudes. Go by and patronize her business, you will be glad you did. Gwyn truly epitomizes the graciousness and warmth of a true South ern lady in modern times. In my trips to Jasper, Florida, I witness several ladies who take making their hometown more attractive to their hearts; Margaret Lewis, Mary B. Cail, and Bar bara Williams, Nancy Cozort and Hazel Royals. I have seen these ladies work very diligently planting owers, making plant ers more attractive, working so hard at the Hamilton County Historical Museum and against great odds striving in marvelous ways to create something that is a feast for the eyes in Jasper, Florida, and never, never wanting any credit for it. True Steel Magnolias, and ladies to the Nth degree. Thank you so much for caring enough to do what you do. We love you. I must mention, too, in this column, the great work done by Tom Moore and many others around the Veterans pavilion in White Springs and for their efforts with beautication there, and we do appreciate it. I thank my cousin, town councilperson and former Mayor Rhett Bullard for his efforts in securing the beautiful lighting through White Springs, Florida. Great job and to former Mayor Helen Miller for the little park next to the re station and the landscape work along Hamilton Street. Thank you to Helen for that and the Hamilton County Industrial Development Authority for your work there. Sometimes we become so busy we fail to thank those who truly work to make our world, and the place we call home more beautiful and positive, but for those who do. Our hats are off to you, and, again, thank you so very, very much. I hope we will all strive, in our own small way, to do as much as we can, when we can, and, at every opportunity we can to make our homes and the places we hold dear more attractive and more beautiful, and, in doing so, we do encourage others, as places of beauty are always encourag ing. Last, but not least, and I shall mention this, I think we all have opportunities to do even more to do positive things for where we live, and lets be about that. If we all do what we could and not be concerned about who got credit; what a world that would be. Its not about getting credit. Its about doing the right thing which happens to be a wonderful thing here Around the Banks of the Suwannee. From the Eight Mile Still on the Wood pecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter. A major annual retirement survey was released this summer. Among its ndings are the nine biggest fears that Americans have regarding retirement. The greatest fear, shared by more than half of the respondents, is outliving ones savings and investments. A larger number of those surveyed now see themselves living to age 90. A smaller but respect able percentage envision themselves as future centenarians. Bottom line? Our money must last longer as life expectancy increases. If Paul Simon was writing Old Friends today, hed change the age in the lyrics. This is the overriding nancial concern we all share in retire ment. Of course, we need to begin address ing this issue decades prior to our actual retirement years. The survey did note that the average age that most Americans begin contributing to re tirement accounts is 27. Thats not bad. Almost half of those surveyed fear the demise of Social Security. My own opinion is that Social Security will be there for us, with some potential chang es, throughout our lifetimes. The voting bloc represented by Boomers is awfully strong. The collapse of Social Security Retirement fears, longevity and old friends Can you imagine us years from today? Sharing a park bench quietly... How terribly strange to be 70. Old friends, memory brushes the same years; Silently sharing the same fears. Old Friends as performed by Simon and Garfunkel r has been predicted annually since I began my practice more than two decades ago. Nothing to be gained by worrying about this issue, anyway, since its beyond our control. Three of the next four fears involve health related issues: declining health that requires long term care; lack of access to adequate and affordable health care; and fear of cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimers disease. Health issues are the nancial wild card in retirement planning. People rightfully fear the price tag of escalating health problems. We are also scared of living at less than our best, living in pain, or becoming a shell of our former physical selves. In fact, according to many surveys, most of us fear being incapacitated or impaired more than we fear dying. Folks often fear not one but a combi nation of these factors, even if they have amassed a signicant nest egg and are enjoying a nice annual income. One of the biggest challenges in retirement is accepting that we are never going to be as nancially secure as wed like to be. Retirement means crossing the Rubicon from full-time employment to part-time work or none at all. Once we are there, things happen that we cant control. But planning well and taking care of our health can lead us in the right direction. Margaret R.

Suwannees Dixon honored with Legion of Valor award Special to the Democrat LIVE OAK Suwan nee High Senior NJROTC Cadet Christian Dixon received the Legion of Valor award in the Su wannee High School atri um last week. The Legion of Valor is a federally chartered corporation created to promote patriotic al legiance to the United States, delity to the U.S. Constitution, and popular support for civil liberties and the permanence of free institutions. Dixon received the award Aug. 15. According to Master Sergeant Doug Aukerman, this award is given to only one in 36,000 ca dets from 4,000 brigades. The annual award is for achievement of scholastic excellence in military and academic subjects. This is a rare and out standing honor, Auker man said. Dixon was one of 22 cadets throughout NJROTC programs in the United States, Japan, and Italy to receive the award. This is one of the highest awards a cadet can earn in the program and, when you consider that there is 89,000 plus cadets in the program, this is a major accomplish ment for any cadet, Lieu tenant Debra Kleinsmith said. This award has never been awarded to a Su wannee High cadet in the 46 years of our existence so we are excited about it and so very proud of Christian Dixon. Dixon, who was over whelmed with emotion while receiving the award, added: I was honestly star struck. ROTC is something that has been really important to me and I have always wanted to succeed and do the best I can. Getting something that is the best you can get is mind blowing. I was in a trance. rf rfrnrnnt rfnntrnrf

SEE BAD, PAGE 7A The words people speak, and write, matter. Other people hear and read those words and are affected by them, sometimes directly. I was ex tremely disappointed last week with two politicians who used words to try to deceive and harm. One of the in cidents occurred here in Florida, the other affected the entire nation. This past week, a woman running for the Florida House of Represen tatives in District 73 made national headlines because she was caught lying about having a college degree. Not only did she lie about having the degree, she went so far as to post a picture of herself holding a fraudulent diploma. As the accusations and denials were taking place, some of her supporters were calling the reports of her lack of college degree fake news. The chants of fake news died down after the college she claims to have graduated from released a statement saying she had been a student for four years but did not graduate. The only fake thing in this story was the diploma she posed with and posted on social media. Thankfully, after being caught trying to deceive the people she wanted to repre sent, Melissa Howard has dropped out of the race. The recently coined phrase fake news really bothers me. It is being used entirely too much. When I was going to school, we were taught to be skeptical of everything we read. We learned the importance of verifying sources and nding information in a variety of locations before forming a conclusion. Too many people in our country are dismissing all news that does not conform to their beliefs as fake news. The press still plays an important role in our society. The only reason Melissa Howard and her supporters know what crow tastes like is because the press exposed her lies. Some of those reading this will say the press only goes after Republicans. To use the word of someone who recently lost his security clearance, that is hogwash. Does anyone remember Gary Hart? For the sake of my younger readers, let me briey retell what happened to him. Mr. Hart was an up-and-coming politician in the Democratic Party. The press reported that he was having an extra-marital affair. He denied the affair until pictures of himself with a young woman, who was not his wife, started to be circulated. The ordeal caused him to lose support and eventually the nomination for President. The Democrats ended up nominating a much less-inspiring candidate named Mike Dukakis. More recently, Presi dent Clintons lies were exposed by the press and almost caused him to be impeached. I dont remember ever hear ing the press being called the enemy by those on the left side of the political spectrum. Last week, our current president wrote on Twitter that the reality TV star he once hired was a dog. If he was trying to harm her in some way, that was not a very smart move. The former employee in question has written a book about her brief time in the White House and the presidents tweet probably made her a pile of money. Her book shot quickly to the No. 2 spot on Amazons best-seller list and is sitting in the No. 3 spot as I write this. The only good thing about the President tweeting insults towards Omarosa is that he then has less time to tweet a threat of a new tariff that will cause my retire ment account to lose money. One has to wonder, Doesnt the President have more important matters to deal with than Omarosa? California is dealing with massive wildres. There is terrible ood ing in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Chicago, Illinois, has had more shootings than can be handled, and here in Florida we are dealing with ecological disasters on both coastlines. Russia is also trying to hack its way into the mid-term elections, which are starting across the country. Trumps insults do nothing to address any of these press ing issues. Since words still do matter, I wish those in positions of power would use them to unite the country and try to solve some of these problems.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Words still matter With the continuing hysteria about Donald Trumps presidency, a few questions come to mind. The rst: Can a bad man become a good pres ident? The second: Does ones being a good man guarantee hell be a good president? Third: Does having a good president require a good man? Is there any evidence of Lord Actons argument that great men are almost always bad men? I think former President Jimmy Carter was a good man who became a weak and bad president, both in domestic matters and in foreign affairs. President Bill Clinton was a bad man who became a reasonably good president in domestic and for eign matters. But then there was that impeachment issue that greatly tarnished his presidency. What about our current president? I think Trumps per sonal behavior prior to his presidency is not something wed call high character. We might put him down as a bad man, but what about his presidency? I think that hed qualify for this description: a bad man but good president. The average reader might ask, Williams, whats your evi dence? In a recent letter to me, Stephen Moore, a George Mason University graduate and a distinguished visiting fellow for the Project for Economic Growth at The Heri tage Foundation, put together a list of President Trumps achievements. I recognize the possibility that they will be seen as horrible, maybe treasonous, by the nations leftists. Trump has appointed Neil Gorsuch and nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Both men have stellar judicial qualications and a deep respect for the U.S. Constitution. In addition, Trump has nominated more than two dozen lower court judges who have similar re spect for our Constitution and are not likely to make laws from the bench. Trump has shepherded through Congress the largest per sonal and corporate tax cuts since the Reagan administra tion. His administration has created a 35 percent reduction in regulations. Those reductions, including the rollback of costly Environmental Protection Agency regulations, have led to the biggest energy boom in history, making the U.S. the worlds No. 1 energy producer and thus ending our de pendence on Middle Eastern oil producers. The Trump administration has ended the Obamacare mandate and reformed the very costly Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Helping with these economic matters is free marketer Larry Kudlow, whom Trump appointed as director of the National Eco nomic Council. As a result of the gross domestic products growth spurt, caused by tax cuts and deregulation, unem ployment is less than 4 percent. Black unemployment is hovering around the all-time low at 6.6 percent. In fact, its estimated that there are 6 million more jobs than work ers. Also on the domestic front, the Trump administration is trying to push through sweeping prison and sentencing reforms. President Trump has also made important gains in inter national affairs. Hes gotten us out of the Paris climate ac cord.

The point of this event is to have the students come from schools and business owners allow them the opportunity to perform simulation job duties. This will guide their vocational choices while in school and, who knows, one of them may become a future employ ee or business owner in our community. Suwan nee County is one of the most community-orient ed places I have ever lived and feel this will help our students with their future. September 19, 2018, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., we will have businesses set up simulation activities in the coliseum and students will circulate through the stations and try the simulation tasks. The businesses will judge their times and accuracy. The students will arrive by bus at 8 a.m. with a peer mentor, which will aid them in each of the stations. Examples for Businesses to Consider: Please help us make this a successful expe rience for the students in Suwannee County. Contact me at 386-688-6886 to sign up or ask questions. I can come to your location to explain further. Respectfully, Beverly Standridge Executive Director The Arc North Florida From our Readers Take part in Job-A-Palooza

Trump also got us out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action the Irani an nuclear deal. Aside from Irans violation of both the letter and the spirit of the agreement, it, too, should have been presented before the U.S. Senate for approv al. President Barack Obama did not present either the Paris climate accord or the Iranian nuclear deal for Senate approval. He knew neither would have passed muster and instead used his executive powers. Also on the international front, Trump has gotten North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Un to the bargaining table to negotiate denu clearization of the Korean Peninsula. Hes gotten our NATO allies to cough up more money for their own defense. Trump is rebuild ing our military strength, which is beginning to put the fear of God into our adversaries. The bottom line is that President Donald Trump does not have the personal character that we would want our children to imitate but has turned out to be a good president, save his grossly misguided interna tional trade policies.

Continued From Page 6A Bad Life in White Springs Where have all the owers gone? No, Im not about to launch into a war protest song, nor am I about to go off on a botanical tangent about owers in Flor ida, of which we are blessed with plenty. Im going to talk about the economics of ower power. This subject came to mind as the result of two weekends re cently spent in Fernandina Beach, where I noticed the welcoming power of ow ers. Many of the restaurants and shops and public places had planters or ower boxes by their entrance. Their beautiful, colorful, fragrant owers were enticing, welcoming and beckoned to people to come on through the beautiful entrances to visit these businesses. Some large oral displays that were visible from the road drew attention from folks who otherwise would have just driven on by without a second look. The owers seem to say This business cares! Come on in! On occasion I even saw store own ers or staff outside watering their owers and using the opportunity to converse with people passing by. It was that extra effort that said We care. I appreciat ed it so much that it made a difference in my choosing which shops to visit. I know that the extra effort they made on the outside was probably reective of ex tra efforts being made on the inside. It is absolutely true that better merchandise, better food, better customer service, fair value and a better all-around shopping experience are often encountered when you visit the place that has the better owers. So I say to the businesses and public places of White Springs, Jasper, Jennings, Live Oak, Branford, Mayo and all along our high ways and byways, here is your chance to help create a more beautiful region, and to get a competi tive edge! Break out your green thumb and make us want to visit you more than we want to visit the plain, dull, boring and sometimes just plain crappy look ing other choices down the street. Its your store, but its our view, so give us some Flower Power! If you do, I think youll nd that looking good is good for business too! Last weeks visit to White Springs by Senator Bill Nelson was a notable high light for a small town like White Springs because campaigns for national ofce often pass us by. Not true of Senator Nelson, who, along with his wife and daughter, came and spent an hour with the enthusiastic full house that gathered at the White Springs Community Center. Several people in the audience expressed their appreciation that Senator Nelson knew where White Springs was. Not only did he know where White Springs was, he related to us that on three differ ent occasions he has canoed the Suwan nee from Big Shoals to White Springs, encountering the dunking power of the Shoals on all three occasions. Perhaps it was a metaphorical experience for him because, not being a man to let obstacles get in his way, he righted the canoe and kept on paddling, eventually reaching his destination! He told the audience that his appreciation for the rural areas of Florida is real partly because he is a fth generation Floridian whose family rst came to Florida in 1829, and eventually his grandparents homesteaded on land that today is the Kennedy Space Center. Nelson said as he was preparing to board the Space Shuttle Columbia for his sixday orbit in 1986, he gazed out from the gantry to the old family homestead and was struck by the wonderment of it all. He also shared with the White Springs audience that as he looked back at our planet, he didnt see any borders or any divisions, political or otherwise, but from that perspective he could see vivid ly that we are all in this together. Yes we are! Thank you Senator Nelson for your visit and additional thanks go out to all those in White Springs who made this event successful! For those of you who appreciate good music and local talent, Ill remind you again that on Friday nights at 6 p.m. in the bell tower at Stephen Foster State Park you can join the singing Ranger Brown Akers as he explores the music of Stephen Foster and his importance to American popular culture.

AUGUST 22 & 23, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A State & Region tom.lynn@ganews.com MOULTRIE, Ga. Population matters. Just ask Colquitt County Administrator Chas Cannon. Population affects anything from the repre sentation in state government to state and fed eral grants, such as money for roads, that are awarded based on a city or countys number of residents, he said. A lot of state money is divvied up by pop ulation, Cannon said. A growing population means the tax base is growing, he said. Alternately, more pop ulation means more pressure on local infra structure. Colquitt County rst appeared on the U.S. Census at the time of the Civil War, when 1,316 residents were counted in 1860. It remained in the four-digit range through 1890, when there were 4,794 people. That number more than doubled 10 years later to 13,636 at the turn of the century. The county was the fastest growing county in Georgia from 1890-1900 at 184.4 percent, according to U.S. Census Bureau records. After hitting a population of nearly 30,000 in 1920, population growth began slowing down through the subsequent decades and inched up to 34,048 in 1960. A decade later, the population declined by almost 2,000 to 32,200 before rebounding 20 years later to 36,645. By 2010, Colquitt Countys population reached 45,498. The Census Bureaus 2017 population estimate for the county was 45,835 a growth of 1.35 percent during the seven-year period. Its hard to say what causes a place to ex pand so rapidly only for growth to slow to a crawl. Some areas see constant growth while others struggle not to lose people. In the SunLight Project coverage area Valdosta, Tifton, Moultrie, Milledgeville, Dalton and Thomasville, Ga., and Live Oak, Fla. city and county ofcials agree population trends can determine the health of a community. Its a balancing act. Community leaders seek growth, but they want to manage it so population doesnt out grow infrastructure and available resources. Cities and counties in the SunLight Project region want to modernize to attract a young er, more technological generation while also taking care of the large, aging Boomer gen eration. Attracting New People For Colquitt, one major development that will have a positive impact is the opening of the new Philadelphia College of Medicine campus in Moultrie. The campus is under construction on Tallokas Road but the rst class of 55 med students is expected to start studies this time next year. The college hopes to draw students from Colquitt and surrounding counties and North Florida, with an expectation of students stay ing in South Georgia after graduation. Initially, about 20 teachers will be em ployed, plus support staff. Adding about 55 students each year, the college will have more than 200 enrolled in four years plus the teaching staff, Cannon said. Younger people and those from other parts of the country may need more than just roads. Younger folks want restaurants, Cannon said. They want things to do in their spare time. He expects the Tallokas Road area to boom with more people and businesses. New teachers will also have an economic impact. You can just imagine that entire area growing, Cannon said. Lynn Williams and Shelley Zorn said there is also a healthy amount of growth present in Thomasville and Thomas County. Zorn, Thomasville Payroll Development Authority executive director, said growth in a community is one of the rst things a busi ness or industry looks for because of an avail able workforce and a market to sell goods. Zorn and Williams said millennials want amenities. We denitely have that: places to shop and dine in downtown Thomasville, Zorn said. In addition to Thomasvilles enviable downtown, the city has bike trails and night time downtown musical events, Williams said. Authentic experiences thats why they like our brick streets, she said. Williams said Thomasvilles growth has been slow and steady. In 2000, the population of Thomasville was 18,166. A decade later, it was 18,413, according to the census bureau. Thomas County had 42,739 residents in 2000 and 44,779 in 2010. Zorn said Thomas County has good schools in two public school systems as com munity assets for attracting people. Good schools and facilities for higher learning draw families even some who grew up in the community, left and returned when starting a family, she said. The vast majority do not return, Zorn said. Millennials choose a community because of its amenities, then look for a job, Zorn said. Some create their own jobs or work from home, she said. So weve got to have a beautiful downtown. Williams said companies are putting a greater priority on quality of life and commu nity development both critical for talent recruitment as they search for potential locations. She said millennials will soon make up 75 percent of the total global workforce, but current projections show a sharp decline of workers in rural Georgia. Successful rural communities should make themselves more attractive for millennials and Zoomers, also known as Generation Z. Rural communities must also ensure they have a vibrant and diverse quality of life with amenities and the right mix of housing, Wil liams said. Andrea Schruijer, executive director for Valdosta-Lowndes Development Authority, said attracting people to live in a community is a basic economic growth strategy. When people move into a community, they buy homes, clothes, groceries and attend events. Population growth is a sign that people want to live, work and play in your area, Schruijer said. This is an important econom ic indicator for businesses. A community with declining or stagnant population cannot grow. The new economy shows that jobs fol low people. Lowndes County Commission Chairman Bill Slaughter said the county population hasnt declined but it hasnt increased much either. Theres been a little bit of an increase but its been somewhat at, he said. You need to have growth. It says a lot about a commu nity. However, Slaughter said there are many attractions bringing people to live in Lowndes County, such as Wild Adventures Theme Park and Moody Air Force Base. Even with these key attractions, Lowndes has hovered at less than 2 percent growth since the 1980s, according to the U.S. Cen sus. This, Slaughter said, isnt necessarily a bad thing. I think 3 percent is a healthy number, he said. That is growth that local governments and businesses can stay up with. That is an effort to maintain good, smart growth. At the heart of Lowndes is the City of Val dosta that was declared a metropolitan area when it hit more than 50,000 people several years ago. The city hit a slump after the Great Reces sion hit in 2008, but from 2015, the city has been steadily growing, he said. For the upcoming 2020 census, John Gay le, Valdosta mayor, said he believes the city will reach more than 60,000 residents. Gayle said the city offers a high quality of life with a university, a hospital and a wide range of food and entertainment options, which is ideal for population growth. You can nd just about anything you need in Valdosta, Gayle said. Thats the important thing. You dont have to go outside of Valdosta to shop, to eat. Were a conve nience city. Valdosta has a campaign called Love Where You Live to make neighborhoods and the city more attractive. The Valdosta City Council is developing a blight tax to get rid of abandoned buildings and is persistently working toward bringing public transporta tion to the city, according to city ofcials. We are always looking for new industry to bring here, as well, Gayle said. We want to make sure we continue to grow and offer the same services. We dont want to get too big where we cant take care of everybody. Handling Growth In North Florida, Suwannee County is growing slowly but surely. While govern ment ofcials want that growth to continue, they admit the slow and steady approach is key. It has to be managed population growth, said Alvin Jackson, Suwannee Countys eco nomic development director. We dont want to grow a weed patch we want to grow a garden. That garden is growing with Suwannee County going from a population of 42,325 residents in 2010 to an estimated 44,190 in 2017. The City of Live Oak has held mainly steady during that time with 6,852 residents in 2010 to an estimated 6,896 in 2017. The Town of Branford also hasnt experienced much growth, with an estimated 16 additional residents last year than it had in 2010. One aspect that Suwannee Countys Board of County Commissioners has identied as a need to further stimulate growth is affordable housing options. Jackson said a variety of housing options are necessary, including single family and multiple-family homes. Those options would bring population and economic growth. New businesses and new jobs wont be available if there is nowhere for those workers to live. The population growth needs to occur where there is housing, Jackson said Ricky Gamble, the chairman of the Suwan nee County Commission, said the average house in Live Oak was built in the 1960s or earlier. There is nothing new coming, so the housing options if you want to live in or near Live Oak just arent there, Gamble said. He said housing developments will bring jobs to construction-related businesses such as hardware stores and plumbing businesses. It is a double-edged sword because some industries wont come without housing, Jackson said. To get people to come and stay, Jackson said there has to be employment opportuni ties and a good education system in place. Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce President Rob Bradham said the county and city have handled population growth about as well as could be expected. From an infrastructure standpoint, the city and county did an excellent job of dealing not only with that population growth but also the manufacturing growth that was going on at the same time, he said. Our water, sewer, our transportation network and our electrical grid are all very, very strong. Whiteld County population has almost doubled during the past 48 years. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county had an estimated population of 104,658 in 2017, up from 55,108 in 1970. Dalton, Whitelds largest city and county seat, has seen its population grow almost as fast. It had an estimated 2017 population of 33,748, up from 18,872 in 1970. Dalton population growth peaked during the 1990s, when it rose by about 28 percent. While the city population growth actually slowed to just less than 20 percent in the 2000s, the countys population peaked in that decade, rising 21 percent. Much of the areas population growth was fueled by an inux of Hispanic workers, many of them immigrants, employed by local oor-covering mills. The Hispanic population rose from the low single digits to an estimat ed 49 percent of Daltons 2017 population and 35.5 percent of the county population. In many respects, we are still trying to gure out how to deal with that change in our demographics, Bradham said. It has been particularly challenging for our two school systems, but they have done a great job. SEE PEOPLE, PAGE 9A rfntbbnntfnfbntbnt rfnfrftfrfbtrfbtbbrfrtrtrfbnbrbrbnbrnr

AUGUST 22 & 23, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A Healthy Living Laughter is the best medicine Eating healthy? Check! Exercise? Check! So why arent we sleeping well? Did you know that stress is the leading cause of six illnesses including heart disease and also affects how we sleep? Since diet and exercise alone is not enough to combat the stress that we deal with on a daily basis, what else is there? Laughter. Not pills. Not alcohol. Sim ply laughing can help you get a better nights rest. According to the Mayo Clinic, laughter is one of the best ways to relieve stress and a great reason to include people that have a good sense of humor in your circle of friends. It doesnt matter how stressed I am some days. As soon as my husband says something stupidly funny, I crack up and feel better. Well let me rephrase that. First I look at him like what did you say THEN I crack up. Thank good ness he does it often too. ;) One study shows that kids on aver age laugh 400 times per day. Want to know what the number of times an adult laughs per day based on information in the same study? 15 times per day. We laugh ONLY 15 times a day on aver age. Explains why so many of us are stressed. Laughter has both short term and long term health benets. Short term, a good laugh not only puts you in a better mood, it increases your intake of oxy gen, lowers your blood pressure, stim ulates your heart and signals your body to release endorphins in your brain. Know what else releases those feel good chemicals in your brain? Exercise. Long term like exercise, laughter boosts your immune system, relieves pain and improves your mood. You dont have to look very far either for something to make you laugh. Some thing as simple as keeping a cartoon, picture, or anything else that makes you laugh nearby will do the trick if you dont have time to watch a funny movie. Enough reasons to make laughter a priority in your day? No? Then how about this one. Laughing gives your abs a good workout so you get double the benet when you laugh youll feel better and work on your core at the same time. This week instead of complain ing, nd humor in things that happen throughout the day. And remember laugh and the world laughs with you (poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox). So go ahead. Get out there and laugh. While youre at it, make your family and friends laugh with you. Have a great week!

We constantly hear messages and commercials about products and services, all promising something we should not have to live with out. And yet, while we are so busy patting ourselves on the back for being so deserv ing, who really gets the better deal? According to Romans 16:17-18, the Bi ble says that people who are serving their own appetites use smooth talk and attery to deceive the minds of nave people. Proverbs 29:5 also warns whoever atters his neighbor is spreading a net for his feet. This is a warning to be more guarded in the face of attery than an honest reprimand. Initially, it may not be as pleasant, but at least you will honestly know where you stand. William Penn, founder of the Pennsylva nia colony, was once quoted: Avoid at terers, for they are thieves in disguise. And he didnt even have television! In relation to false advertisement, we can easily make the connection between a atterer and a thief. After all, we know those commercials are purposed to make a prot! In relation ships, however, we might not always see the correlation as clearly. By denition, attery is excessive praise from motives of self-interest. Thus, it is the motives and not the praise that is the problem. In healthy relationships, our mo tives should always be for the good of the other person. Honest compliments are al ways welcome, but deceptive attery truly is a net for our feet and a thief in disguise. Why is this so? 1) Since the motive for attery is self-interest, it lays a trap to ma nipulate behavior from which the atterer will benet. If a simple request would be re jected, attery becomes the tool that serves to deceive and control. 2) Flattery is dangerous to the recipient when it is received, (we might say swallowed hook, line and sinker) and results with pride and conceit causing the per son to act foolishly. It is worth mentioning that we are all susceptible to attery because it is human nature to enjoy hearing good things about ourselves, especially the positive opinion of others. Interestingly, the original He brew word for attery translates smooth, (hence the caution for a smooth-talker) and gives us warning when praise is too easy to swallow. Wisdom and discernment dictate that we learn to recognize when praise is being laid on a little thick. We must also consider the source. Ask your self, Would this same person tell me the truth if it were hard to hear? If the answer is yes, enjoy the compliment. Otherwise, look down and beware of the net around your feet...

If you grew up here in the 1980s and 1990s, you are used to living in a multi cultural society, and I think thats going to be a positive. Bradham said the areas Hispanic community has been particularly important in new business formation. We discovered that the Great Recession pretty much put a stop to new business starts in this community, with the exception of the Hispanic community, he said. The Hispanic community was still starting new businesses even during the recession and that has only expanded since the recession ended. Tifton City Manager Pete Pyrzenski said dealing with declining, stagnate and at population growth is the new norm for a lot of local gov ernments. A declining or at popula tion growth is not what city and county ofcials want to see over time, and they are constantly looking for indica tors, he said. (Tifton is) a regional hub for this area, and even though our nighttime popula tion has not increased much, the daytime population has soared, Pyrzenski said. People are coming to Tifton to work, eat and play, he said. This means they are essentially getting a deeper benet in sales tax collec tions. Pyrzenski said the city wants to attract people to not only come for a good time but also put down roots. The necessary emphasis needs to be placed on available homes, quality services and stable taxes, which they have been doing during the last few years. I have not seen a move ment to move to the county from the city, and in fact, there are a number of re quests for annexations for subdivisions to be built so city services could be provid ed, Pyrzenski said. I really believe that today it is all what you want; convenience over country living. It is just a personal preference, but both are being sought after. The largest decade of growth for Tift County was between 1910 and 1920, with the second largest decade for growth being be tween 1940 and 1950. The slowest growth period took place between 2010-14. If the population growth percentage stayed at that percentage of 0.08 percent, the estimated population in 2018 would be 40,374. The current population is 40,598, which would indicate that population growth is slightly above the lowest growth per centage of 0.08. The county was only founded in 1905, after the Southern and Florida Rail way intersected the Bruns wick and Western Railroad in 1888 and the town of Tifton grew up. Angie Marin, president/ chief executive ofcer of the Milledgeville Baldwin Coun ty Chamber of Commerce, said she believes Milled geville-Baldwin County is a diverse community with similar percentages of white and black residents. However, the countys Asian, Hispanic and Indian populations are less than 2 percent, and its age demo graphics are indicative of a heavy secondary education community, with the average age being 34, Marin said. There is a substantial re tirement population at nearly 16 percent, and that num ber is expected to increase during the next 12 years, possibly due to Lake Sinclair and the low cost of living in Continued From Page 8A People the area, she said. The population in Baldwin County has decreased by about 1,200 people in the last ve years, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. As of July 1, 2017, Bald win Countys population is estimated to be 44,906. This is a 2 percent decrease from the population in 2010. Baldwin County is not alone. In North Florida, Hamilton Countys popu lation fell by around 500 people from the 14,683 that resided there in 2010, a 3 percent decrease. Its even bigger in the City of Jasper where there was an estimated population of 3,959 in 2017 an 11 per cent drop from 2010. Jennings and White Springs, meanwhile, have held steady in their popula tions. Lafayette County has also had a shrinking population, with a 4 percent decrease from 2010 with 8,451 resi dents estimated in 2017. The Town of Mayo, though, has picked up a few additional residents. In the City of Milled geville, Georgia, the popula tion as of July 1, 2017, is es timated to be 18,575, which is a 0.8 percent increase from the population in 2010. In the county, more than half of the population is white and almost 43 percent of the population is black. The same percentages stand for the city. Marin said it is imperative for a community to grow and ourish in regards to popula tion, public services and edu cation for that community to be a vital, successful one for future years. A population shift, particu larly a decline, can negative ly affect a community and its businesses, she said. People will go where there are other people they can sell their goods to and socialize with, she said. Milledgeville isnt alone in shifting demographics. Sta tistics show there is a popu lation shift across the globe. Many rural areas are losing population, while a majority of metro areas are gaining residents, she said. The demographic chang es our 11-county region will experience before 2030 has our retired population nearly doubling, while our millennial population only increases 8 percent, Marin said. I believe this gives our community an opportunity to really capitalize on our potential assets retirees with expendable income and free time. The struggle to attract and retain a viable workforce will still be a main concern, she said. In the region, health care, professional, scientic, tech and construction indus tries are expected to make up the fastest growing sectors during the next 10 years. With nearly 50 percent of the workforce retiring and the need to ll those posi tions, as well as more than 6,000 new positions, Marin said the area really needs to focus on attracting and retaining workers who t the age and demographics those sectors require.

The board asked County Administra tor Louie Goodin to create a potential incentive package program at the Aug. 7 meeting. Commissioner Randy Ogburn said there was an incentive package at one time and suggested looking at it. County Attorney Cliff Adams said if the incentive package is open to every one, it would have to be voted on by the public. Goodin said he would create an out line of what the board could do and what resources they may want to put towards it. He said they could potentially have a workshop on it later.

According to County Engineer Seth Cohen, all the projects were overbid for the Florida Department of Transporta tion funding. Anderson Columbia was the lowest bidder for all three projects. Anderson Columbia bid $1,276,926.12 for SW 55th Drive and U.S. 129; $973,932 for SE 141st Boulevard; and $441,393.14 for 104th Avenue, 35th Drive, NW 103rd Place and ChanBridge Road.

The Bears, though, pulled away late from the Hornets for a 61-48 win at Bruce Boyette Field. Ive never been in a game like that, Lafayette coach Joey Pearson said. Offensively, they never stopped us and defensively, we never stopped them. With the defenses reduced to by standers for the majority of the first half, the Hornets and Bears totaled 484 yards of offense in the first half as each team scored five touchdowns. Dixie County also had an 80-yard kickoff return touchdown. In addition to the special teams score from senior standout Carlos Wil liams Jr., Dixie County used special teams and big runs to stay in it. The Bears had seven plays of at least 20 yards and also operated with short fields following long kick and punt returns. While Lafayette struggled to slow Williams, the Bears likewise had no answer for Jaxson Beach and the Hor nets high-powered attack.

Children may have their own ideas of whats in style, but parents should look for backpacks that are functional before factoring in style. Marrying form and function together can be challenging, but its necessary to prevent students from developing back problems. But parents must give consideration to more than just the size of their childrens backpacks. Backpacks may be lled with several pounds of stu, such as textbooks, binders, laptops, and other supplies, potentially leading to injury. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, at least 14,000 children are treated for backpack-related injuries every year. e American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons says that the weight of a backpack should not exceed 10 to 15 percent of a childs body weight. But many students pack their bags with much more weight than that. Improperly sized, worn and overstued backpacks can injure joints and lead to neck, back and shoulder injuries. ey also may aect childrens posture. job done without much added bulk. Many backpacks have been designed to hold technological devices as more and more schools integrate technology into the classroom. A less bulky bag might be lighter and easy to carry. goods store. Employees at camping and sporting goods retailers understand how to t backpacks for hikers and outdoor adventurers. ey can help measure a student and nd a pack that will t his or her body frame. Also, these retailers may have a wider selection of backpacks than some other stores, increasing the chances of nding the right t. Chiropractic Association, the body is not designed to carry items hanging from shoulders. By using the waist strap in conjunction with taut shoulder straps, students can distribute the weight in their backpacks over their hip bones instead of the shoulders. e padded and adjustable shoulder straps should be at least two inches wide. All straps should be used each time the pack is worn. near the center bottom to distribute the load, rather than placed on top. Students should only carry what is necessary, visiting lockers or desks as needed to lighten their packs.

Now Oering BOTOX!(386) 362-6556 1-800-829-6506 scored on four of their rst six possession to take a commanding lead against Santa Fe. Penalties and self-in icted wounds kept SHS from scoring in the second half, but the Bulldogs still walked away with a 29-15 win in front of a big crowd at Paul Langford Stadium. It started with defense giving us some good eld position, said Suwannee coach Kyler Hall, whose team began ve drives inside Santa Fe territory. We put up a lot of points early. There were some things we left out there. But the good thing about the (Kickoff) Classic is there are lot of teachable moments. Its great to start out the year with a win. Its the rst time weve done that in the last couple of years. SHS quarterback Tyree Taylor ran for a team-high 85 yards and three touch downs. Taylor, working mostly out of the shotgun with running back Carl ton Hall by his side, was able to nd some running opportunities with the de fense focused on stopping Hall. Taylors nal rushing touchdown a 16-yard keeper on a zone read came with less than a minute left in the second quarter and gave the Bull dogs a 29-7 lead going into the half. He scored Suwan nees rst two touchdowns on quarterback sneaks. Taylor also had a solid night in the air, com pleting ve of 10 passes for 60 yards. Two of his incompletions were a result of dropped passes. Taylor connected with four different receivers, which included a 32-yard bomb to Jaquary Pratt and a 13-yard strike to Dylan Brantley. After gaining 194 yards in the rst half, the Bull dogs only managed 52 yards in the second half. SHS went three-and-out on ve of its nal six drives. Suwannees defense also came out strong. The Bull dogs made seven tackles for losses in the rst half as Santa Fe didnt pick up a rst down until late in the second quarter. With three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Suwannee came up with a goal-line stand to seal the game. Santa Fe had two opportunities to score from the 1-yard line, but Suwannee shut the door on third and fourth down. Continued From Page 1B Bulldogs Sports After opening the game just 1 for 4 pass ing, Beach connected on his next 14 throws as he spread the ball around to five different receivers. The biggest beneficiary early for LHS was senior Richy James. Playing in his first football game, James had five receptions for 147 yards and two touchdowns. Most of that damage came in the first half when he hauled in a 9-yard touchdown pass to open the second quarter and put the Hornets up 14-13 and then a 79-yard catch-and-run score to make it 21-20 LHS. Thats the first real football game and he had a real nice debut, Pear son said. Later in the half, Beach found fellow All-State performer Ben Massey from 12 yards out to put the Hornets up 34-27. Beach finished 19-of32 for 299 yards with the three TDs passing, adding 58 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. His first TD put LHS up 7-0 on the games first drive and his other scoring run pulled the Hornets within 48-46 with one minute left in the third. Garris Edwards two-point run knotted it. Williams, though, had the answer like he did most of the night while Continued From Page 1B Hornets rfr nrtbrnrr battling cramps. Two plays after the tying score and on the final play of the third, Wil liams darted untouched from 46 yards out to give Dixie the lead for good. Williams finished with five touchdowns and 246 yards on nine carries. As a team, the Bears rushed for 381 yards on 22 car ries. Williams is outstand ing, Pearson said. Hes probably the best player well see all year. And we didnt do anything to change that up, either Weve got a lot to work on defensively. A Hornet turnover midway through the fourth turned into a Scott Hysmith touchdown that made it 61-48. Massey, one of three Hornets with five re ceptions, left the game with cramps in the third quarter. Adam Perry also had five catches, totaling 74 yards as the Hornets finished with 407 yards of offense. There was plenty of stuff to build on, but plenty of stuff we can work on, Pearson added. UP NEXT: Lafayette opens the regular sea son Friday with a trip to Thomasville, Georgia, to face Brookwood School. The Hornets stung the Warriors 33-10 in last years opener.
