L. Whit eld and Charles H. Tatum. A September 1895 edition had several items of inter est relating to Suwannee County. We have looked at some of them over the last couple of weeks, and well nish it today. Amidst all the ads and other items, one short but conspicuous article in the newspaper ap pears as thus: The gallows that has so long been an un sightly ornament to the jail yard can at last be torn down. Its gruesome work nished. The murderers have fallen from its platform into Eternity, while hundreds of Suwannees young people stood round, and watched the shocking spectacle. The fate of these three men should not be forgotten by others of the same color, and their ignominious end should warn the ne gro against the commission of crime in every form. I immediately realized to what murder and defendants this short epitaph referred, and so heres the rest of the story Until 1923, each county in Florida was re sponsible for executing its own death penalties, overseen and/or performed by the sheriff. The preferred method of execution was hanging, but the 1923 law that shifted executions to State jurisdiction also changed the execution method to the electric chair. This was the de facto method of execution until after 1999, when the State changed its law to lethal injec tion (unless specically requested otherwise). In Suwannee Countys case, these executions were held on or near the Courthouse square. Specically, they were performed in the jail (prison), or its courtyard, which throughout the pre-1923 history under discussion was originally located on the west side of Pine Street (where the Supervisor of Elections Ofce is located today) and later just west of the Courthouse (where the Tax Collector and Property Appraiser are currently located). Le gally required to be present at hangings were the sheriff, at least two of his deputies, the district attorney, clerk of court, 12 respectable citizens (including a physician or surgeon), defendants counsel, a minister of the gospel, and the defendants relatives. However, these hangings were huge affairs, with hundreds, and sometimes even thousands, of spectators re corded as watching the nal moments of those condemned. On March 27, 1895, Alfred (sometimes called Ed) Ryeberg boarded the Savannah, Florida & Western Railway in Gainesville to travel to Waycross, Georgia. The conductor said that he could not take Ryeberg past High Springs, as it was a through freight train, not a passenger train. As Ryeberg went to get off, an African-American man stopped him and said that he could help him get to Waycross if he would give him his money ($0.30), then pointed him to a stock car in which they could make the exchange. After Ryeberg entered the car, three African-Americans, George Mitch ell, Henry Brown and Mike Stevens, took Ryebergs $0.30, his watch, and then severely beat him over the head and body with an iron rod before throwing him off the train near McAlpin. Badly injured, Ryeberg lay near the tracks until the 28th, when M. P. Gardner was walking along the tracks and found him. Mr. Gardner carried Ryeberg back to his home and cared for him, but he died the next day. Rye berg, a white man, was able to provide enough information about the circumstances before his death that the killers were quickly arrested, with Ryebergs stolen watch being among the most incriminating of the evidence. A trial was held and Mitchell, Brown, and Stevens were found guilty of rst-degree murder. The courts upheld the verdicts after appeals, and copies of the death warrants written by the governor of Florida (and still in the possession of the Clerks Ofce) read that the defendants (each had his own death warrant) were sentenced for the said crime to suffer the pains of death, by being hanged by the neck untill (sic) he be dead The gover nor further ordered that the hangings take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Sheriff J. W. Hawkins dutiful ly wrote on the copies of the death warrants that he had abided by their terms and hanged the guilty men (on separate dates due to appeals, sickness, etc.) at the appropriate times between July and September 1895 in the jail yard until they were dead. An article in the Eastern Courier newspaper of Hertford, North Carolina, from July 31, 1895, discussed one of the executions: At Live Oak, Fla., Henry Brown, colored, was hanged for the murder of Ed Ryberg, a white man, on March 27. Brown stated that he alone killed Ryberg, and that George Mitchell and Mike Stevens, who were tried and con victed with him, are innocent. There was talk of lynching Mitchell and Stevens. Brown con fessed that he had murdered seven men, all for robbery. In perusing the surviving records, there is the possibility that one (and perhaps two) of the men were innocent of the crime, or at least would not have been found guilty of rst-degree murder in a modern courtroom. The fact that two of the men were the only Af rican-Americans known to be working on the train at the time of the assault did not help their case. However, in the Jim Crow-era days be fore the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, the word of an African-American man meant little compared to that of a white man. Well look at another facet of Suwannee County history next week. Eric Musgrove can be reached at ericm@ suwgov.org or 386-362-0564.

SEE PRICE, PAGE 13A There is so much going on next week. Not only will there be a huge pep rally Thursday before the Suwannee High homecoming game on Friday, the Hulaween music festival will be rocking the northern end of Su wannee County at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. The event is sold out, so if you do not already have tickets, you probably do not want to try to get tied up in the trafc in order to buy a ticket that does not exist. There will also be the largest single jackpot ever in the Mega Millions lottery. By the time you read this, someone might be more than a billion dollars richer. My column this week is not about any of those things. I am writing about the election coming up on Nov. 6. I am sure you have seen the TV commercials, or had your YouTube videos interrupted, or seen some yers in your mailbox. Heck, one candidate has even decided to use 12 million dollars of his own money to help pay for more political advertisements here in Florida. I have heard that this is the most important election of my life one too many times. I really hope that after this election is over that we can place that phrase in the dustbin of history. I do feel like this is an important election, but I dont see how it is any more important than the ones that came before it or the elections that will come after it. If you are like me, you are stressed about this upcoming election because you feel the need to learn about the many candidates and proposals so that you can make an informed decision. One reason that this election is important here in Flor ida is the many amendment proposals that will be on our ballots Nov. 6. There are so many amendment proposals this year because the Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) convened, as it does every 20 years, and added a few more for our consideration. You might remember my column about the disastrous bundling of ideas by the CRC that created Amendment 8. Thankfully, the Florida Supreme Court kicked that amendment off the ballot. I had hoped that the court would also kick the other bundled amendments off of our ballots, but that did not happen. I am recommending that you vote yes on 2, 3 and 4, but no more. This is only my opinion, but I hope that you will read up on these issues for yourself. I feel that you should vote yes on 2 because no ones property taxes should go up more than 10 percent a year. Amendment 2 places a 10 percent cap on annual increases of non-home stead property tax assessments. A yes vote on Amend ment 3 takes the power to expand gambling away from the legislature in Tallahassee and puts that power into the hands of local voters. Anytime we can keep the clowns in Tallahassee away from making decisions that affect the entire state, we should do it. Voting yes on Amendment 4 would bring Florida into line with the vast majority of other states. If someone has served their time in jail for breaking the law they should not be banned from voting for life. Please research the rest of the amendments and I think you will feel that they deserve a no vote as I do. There will be a second gubernatorial debate between Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis tonight (Oct. 24). I will be watching this debate as I watched the debate on CNN this past Sunday. It is part of what I feel I need to do to be an informed voter. Regardless of your own preparation for Novembers vote, please make your way to the voting booth on Nov. 6 if you have not already voted early or by mail.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Here it comes again, ready or not Thirteen states Alabama, Ar kansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ten nessee, Virginia and West Virginia have enacted laws to combat what is seen as price gouging in the wake of natural disasters. Price gouging is legally dened as charging 10 to 25 percent more for something than you charged for it during the month be fore an emergency. Sellers convicted of price gouging face prison terms and nes. Price gouging in the wake of natural disasters is often seen as evil exploitation by sellers to rip off desperate customers. Lets hold off on that conclusion until after you give thought to some very important questions. First lets see what we can agree upon. When a natural disaster occurs or is anticipated, sup ply conditions change. There is going to be less of what people want and need. Under such conditions, what ac tions are consistent with the public good? My answer is that people should voluntarily use less of everything and waste nothing. That would include economizing on water, gasoline, food and anything else necessary for survival. How about an example? Take the case of a hurricane like Florence. Lets as sume that evacuation 200 miles or so inland would guar antee safety for North Carolinians. Say the Jones familys car has three-quarters of a tank of gas, more than enough to drive to safety. The Smith familys car has less than a quarter-tank of gas, which is not enough to drive away from danger. We can multiply this scenario by tens of thousands of families in the Joneses condition and thou sands of families in the Smiths predicament. Heres my question: Who should forgo purchasing gas in the storm-threatened area? My answer would be all those people who have enough gas to drive to safety people such as the Joneses. By not purchasing gas, theyd make more gas available for those who really need the gas in order to drive to safety, such as the Smiths. We might also ask how considerate and caring it would be to their fellow North Carolinians who desperately need gas for people who have enough to evacuate to purchase gas just to top off their tanks. If people such as the Joneses wont consider the needs of their fellow man voluntarily, the North Carolina at torney general could station government ofcials at each gasoline station to determine who should be permitted to purchase gas. You say, Williams, it would be sheer luna cy for scarce state resources to be used that way, especial ly in the face of a natural disaster! I think youre right. Another method would be for the governor, mayors and church and community leaders to admonish North Car olinians to purchase gasoline only if they really need it. That way, plenty of gas would be available for those with nearly empty tanks. You might say, Come on, Williams. Arent you being a bit naive thinking that would work? Youre probably right again. What I think would make gas available to those who really need it are rising prices. Suppose the pre-hurri cane price of gas was $2.60 a gallon. As the hurricane approaches, dealers could let the price rise to $4 a gallon. That would give families who have enough gas to evac uate incentive to voluntarily forgo purchasing gasoline. r Is price gouging during a disaster evil?

SEE FUNDING, PAGE 13A Opinion A PAGE 7 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf OCTOBER 24 & 25, 2018 WASHINGTON This years election that most implicates fundamental issues of American governance will not ll a legis lative or executive ofce. And its importance is not primarily that it will either repudiate or re ward dishonesty and cynicism in the service of factional grasping. Rather, Arizonas judge-retention election will decide whether judges should be vulnerable to punishment if their punctilious application of a law annoys a self-aggrandizing interest group. Two years after justices are appointed by the governor to Arizonas Supreme Court, they must be voted on in retention elections, and subsequently in such elections every six years. This misbegotten procedure is an incentive for injudiciousness for judges to consider public opinion while making jurisprudential distinctions and decisions. To their credit, Arizonans have never exercised their power to remove a justice of the states Supreme Court. This year, however, voters are being exhorted by the Arizona Education Association, the teachers union, and national allies to reject the two justices standing for retention. Their supposed transgression is that they stopped the union from beneting from misleading voters with a meretricious wording of a ballot initiative. The wording might have been charitably ascribed to carelessness rather than guile, but it was suspiciously helpful to the unions objective. Last spring, Arizona teachers went on strike, win ning from the governor a 20 percent raise by 2020. Then, in an attempted end-run around the legislature, the AEA supported Proposition 207, to get voters to directly increase taxes for education spending. Targeting afuent Arizonans, the measure, if passed, would have raised $690 million annually, with 60 percent dedicated to teachers salaries. But the ballot language describing 207 was misleading about one matter and false about another. The initiative would have almost doubled Ari zonas top income-tax rate from 4.54 percent to 8 percent on incomes above $250,000 and 9 percent on those above $500,000. But the ballot description falsely said this top rate would be raised by 4.46 percent, not the actual 4.46 percentage points, a substantial difference. Also, since 2015 Arizona has had indexation of its tax brackets, so, for example, the bracket that used to cover incomes between $50,001 and $150,000 now applies to somewhat higher incomes. But the way Proposition 207 was written would have repealed indexation and the adjustments it had made since 2015 effectively raising taxes on many people. For these reasons, the states Supreme Court struck 207 from this Novembers ballot. As of this writing, the courts opinion has not been published, but a leak indicates that the court ruled 5-2, with the two jus tices, Clint Bolick and John Pelander, who are sub ject to a retention vote, in the majority. Both judges have stellar ratings from Arizonas Commission on Judicial Performance Review. But the AEA, its care lessness and/or mendacity stymied, wants revenge and to send a message: Do not render decisions that anger a special interest with especially deep pockets. Now, judicial elections of all sorts are congruent with todays populist temper Vox populi, vox Dei and all that. They are, however, always and everywhere, inherently inimical to judicial indepen dence from political pressures. They are permanent and perverse incentives for judges weighing juris prudential arguments to, as it were, glance over their shoulders at glowering and clamorous factions, and to trim their juridical sails to accommodate prevail ing political winds. Arizonans who are voting early voting began Oct. 10 in the retention election should con template the recent spectacle involving the U.S. Supreme Court. The court has been sucked into the vortex of todays bilious politics by a conrmation process that is not the courts fault. But two days after Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as a justice elsewhere, all nine justices made matters worse by allowing themselves to be props at a White House event an end-zone dance masquerading as a civic liturgy in which the president, with his knack for vulgarity and his eye on next months elections, issued a faux apology to Kavanaugh on behalf of no one in particular, but for the obvious purpose of making his base salivate for partisan score-settling. Might all the justices nally recognize how inappro priate it is for them to attend the annual political pep rally that presidents of both parties have made of the State of the Union address? Arizonans can immunize their states judiciary from a downward stumble into politics. They can reject the attempt to punish two ne judges, and to intimidate others, for patently political purposes.

Around the Banks My view of the Suwannee River Valley GATHERING LEAVES Spades take up leaves No better than spoons, And bags full of leaves Are light as balloons. I make a great noise Of rustling all day Like rabbit and deer Running away. But the mountains I raise Elude my embrace, Flowing over my arms And into my face. I may load and unload Again and again Till I ll the whole shed, And what have I then? Next to nothing for weight, And since they grew duller From contact with earth, Next to nothing for color. Next to nothing for use. But a crop is a crop, And whos to say where The harvest shall stop? Robert Frost A longtime friend suggested to me a number of years ago that the book I should consider writing was one about my person al view of the area and, in particular, the Town of White Springs. At the age of 60, I am more than con sidering this friends suggestion. I thought about a couple of days ago when my broth er and I were engaged in that pastime that may be foreign to some who were not born and raised here, but it is well know to those who were, riding around. Through the years, I learned a lot by riding around with my Daddy, now gone for close to 25 years, with my paternal great-aunt Mar garet Joyner Bullard, now gone for 35 years, and with many others who, without knowing it, gave me history lessons seen through their eyes and their eyes alone. As my brother and I drove from the drive of Prospect Prim itive Baptist Church, about 13 miles north of White Springs on the Woodpecker Route, my mind traveled down its own pathway to those third Saturday and Sunday annual Big Meetings that were held at the church annually, the third Sun day of November. The Primitive Baptists believed whole-heart edly in the doctrine of predestination, and they did NOT believe in preachers who were short-winded. On any given third Sunday in November during the days of my childhood, there would be as many as four or ve preachers who, from a raised pulpit at the center of the church, with membership segregated by gender, men on one side of the church, ladies on the other, and the visitors in front of the preacher, held forth with impassioned sermons from the word of God. No instrumental music was utilized in the church. The songbooks did not even contain musical notes. Words were written in stanzas like poetry and the pastors often lined the hymns, meaning they read the words, and the congrega tion sang in response. I still have the Primi tive Baptist song book used by my paternal grandfather. Part of the service for communion in volved washing feet. Water was pumped from a pitcher pump into foot tubs. If you dont get the reference foot tubs, you are not from here, and then poured into basins. Members girded themselves with long white sashes and got on the oor and washed the feet of their fellow member and dried them, and this was concluded by a loving embrace. This, I can attest. I have some folks who attended the services who might have gone with a rather jaded opinion of what was in volved, but the display of heartfelt fellow ship, genuine humility, and love, prodded them to have a view of the pervasive spirit very different from the one that went with them through the doors. As the young folks say It is for real. Well, thats just one memory that will be gone when I am no more. Another one will be of the Halloween Carnivals and Fall Festivals held at South Hamilton Elementary School, White Springs. In the days of my childhood and school years, the Fall Festival or Hallow een Carnival was a money maker for the P.T.A. or P.T.O. and it helped students and teachers at the school by providing needed equipment, classroom supplies and other school needs. I can remember those early meetings when room count was taken, and if your class won the room count, you received so many dollars from the Parent Teacher Organization. Of course, if your class presented a program the night of the meeting, it was pretty much a shoe in. One HUGE money maker for the Hal loween Carnival was the crowning the Halloween King and Queen. Individual classrooms voted on who their Prince and Princess representative was going to be, and then folks received penny votes. To day, I am sure it would be dollar votes. That event raised a lot of money for the school. In Suwannee County, an autumn event that comes to mind is the Suwannee Coun ty Fair. In the days of my growing up, the Suwannee County Fair was held at the Suwannee County Coliseum and the Fair Grounds, but it was held during the fall of the year. I can well remember going there with my maternal aunt Margaret Taylor Wooley and our friend Becky Wallace Dubose, and visiting all the booths that were put together by all the 4-H Clubs and Home Demonstration Clubs, and, then there were the animals, all kinds, poultry, cattle, hogs, and you name it, even rabbits, and ribbons were awarded for those the judges considered best. Awards were given for the best jellies, jams, and preserves. What an event, and I always associate it with the fall. This morning, I heard hounds barking across on the Suwannee River on the Co lumbia County side, and it signaled for me another childhood memory. In the days of my childhood, there was a gathering of folks at various hunting camps to welcome the opening of the white tailed deer season. Hamilton County was white tailed deer country with its thousands of acres of at woods. It was not a county on the southern end divided into many family farms. I can remember the late Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Pop Thurber, always having an eve of the deer hunting season supper at their camp north of us on the Woodpecker Route; always lots of food, laughter, and folks from all walks of life. Campres glow in my minds eye of several families who hunted near our home over a half cen tury ago and frosty mornings in early No vember were welcomed with the raucous and enthusiastic barking of deer hounds on the trail moving to a crescendo when they jumped the deer, meaning they were hot on the trail Yes, at 60, there wont be as many pro ductive years for me as there have been, but with the time I have left, I can utilize it to capture times, places, and faces and events, in a north Florida I knew and one in which I lived. By the way, that friend who suggested I write the book, Meri McKenzie, thank you, and I hope when I complete it, it will be as beautiful as some of your wonderful textile artistry and wo ven with threads that will remind us of faces and places we still know and love, because the memory is still in our hearts. 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.

Thats not an ex aggeration. Way back in high school, I remember most of my friends being able to wear mens Levis. Me? Nope. I had hips and a butt. To get them to t, Id have to go up a few sizes. You would think the light bulb would have gone off in my head that mens Levis were made for MEN to wear. Not women. But no, it just made me sad that I couldnt wear them with my earth shoes or sneakers and look as cute as all my friends. Fast forward and my butt is still not fashionable. Why? I dont have a bubble butt and for several years now the focus is on having this butt that for me without sur gery aint gonna happen. But now I no lon ger hate my butt. I really dont care what it looks like behind me because Im focused on keeping it strong. Most of us probably arent aware of the many things our butts do for us. It cushions our insides when we sit down. It helps us get up and out of the recliner. It helps us walk. It even helps with hip rotation. Think about those simple things. Now imagine how hard it would be to do any of them without a strong butt. Changes the way you look at your behind doesnt it? Beyond the aesthetics of a strong butt, hopefully you understand why it is im portant to exercise that part of your body. What is the best exercise to strengthen your behind? There are several but one of the best by far are squats. Squats, squats, squats. But you must be sure you are doing it right. (Always check with your doctor before adding new exercises.) Stand with your feet hip distance apart. Bend your knees and imagine you are sticking your butt behind you or that you are going to sit down into chair. Most important is to en sure that your knees stay behind your toes. Weight heavy on the heels to help you stand back up. Start with three sets of eight to 10 reps. A few more exercis es to strengthen your glutes include: foot forward. Bend your knees and bring the back leg down toward the oor. Repeat on the other side. Again be sure your knees do not go beyond your toes. or simply step up and down on a platform, you activate the majority of the butt mus cles. Step up 10 times on your right foot, then switch to your left foot. the soles of your feet on your mat. Squeeze your butt and raise your hips towards the ceiling. Slowly lower back to your mat. Repeat for three sets of eight to 10 reps. Because many of us spend our days sitting on our butts, we may end up with injuries in our hip exors, knees and lower back. Taking the time to keep our behind strong will help keep your body injury free AND make sure you can get out of your chair. Have a great week!

A few months ago I invited a good friend who is an exercise junkie out to lunch and was telling her how I was struggling to get back to a routine of working out. I asked for her recommen dations on which workouts were best and such. By the end of the meal, I had some great ideas and was really moti vated to get started. Then she looked at me and said start today. Today? Well, I was thinking I could start over the weekend or maybe next Monday. Isnt Monday the day to begin a new thing? Yes, today. If you dont just get going, and keep going, it will never happen. Hard things are, well, hard, and even harder to start! The challenge before Esther in Chapter 5 was one she certainly would have loved to put off, but the time had arrived. The three days of fasting she requested from Mordecai and her people had come to an end. It was time. Today. On the third day Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the kings palace, in front of the kings quarters, while the king was sitting on his royal throne inside the throne room opposite the entrance to the palace (Esther 5:1). Can you even imagine what was going through Esthers head in those moments? Three days ago she had re solved to this task, stating If I perish, I perish. Today she would nd out. She would see if the king would accept her visit, hear her request and ultimately save her people. Or, would he reject her visit and have her put to death, and like ly thwart any rescue for the Jews from Hamans death decree. To her relief, the king held out to Esther the golden scepter, inviting Es ther to approach and make her request known. It is interesting to consider the kings reaction to Esthers action; while she was fearfully making her approach, he responds with excitement: What is it Queen Esther? What is your request? It is your request? It shall be given you, even to the half of my kingdom (Esther 5:3). I think the kings curiosity was at an all-time high. He knew that Esther had risked her life to ap proach the king and had to be dying to know why! Her in vitation to a banquet where he and Haman would be the only guests had to intensify that curiosity even more. The fact that Esther did not blurt out her request shows remarkable patience and self-control. Gathering the courage to begin a hard thing is just the rst step. Patience and self-control will be the second neces sity, but the good news is that both are fruit of the Spirit of God. Focusing on our relationship with Christ will allow these qualities to develop and pour forth. They will bring about excellence and results in our lives. As I commit to working out, I have to be patient in order to build stamina and strength and I will need self-control (lots!) to keep working when I desperately wanted to quit. The same is true when we are to be used by God for His purposes. 2 Pe ter 1:8 includes these qualities in a com prehensive list: For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they will keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The interactive murder mystery evening will be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Main Street Playhouse and Event Center located at 172 SW Range Avenue. Life is generally boring in the small town of Hen dricks, with the exception of the Lions Club annual bar-b-que and the high school senior play, until the arrival of a stranger who ultimately is found deceased on the couch of Mattie and Carl Johansen. Not knowing who is he, or how he ended up dead on the sofa, Mayor Lyles decides to call a special meeting of the town council to investigate this mysterious strangers demise. Even though the local sheriff claims he has already conducted a full investigation and the good ole doc has accurately, maybe, diagnosed the cause of death, questions arise and secrets are re vealed. When the local high school drama teacher sets up a mock set of the crime scene, the mystery begins to unravel while the audience will help de termine the real culprit of the crime.

Does brushing or ossing make you wince occasionally? If so, you may have sensitive teeth. Possible causes include: Tooth decay (cavities) Fractured teeth Worn llings Gum disease Worn tooth enamel Exposed tooth root In healthy teeth, a layer of enamel protects the crowns of your teeth-the part above the gum line. Under the gum line, a layer called cementum protects the tooth root. Underneath both the enamel and the cementum is dentin. Dentin is less dense than enamel and cementum and contains microscopic tubules (small hollow tubes or canals). When dentin loses its protective covering of enamel or cementum, these tubules allow heat and cold or acidic or sticky foods to reach the nerves and cells inside the tooth. Dentin may also be exposed when gums recede. The result can be hypersensitivity. Proper oral hygiene is the key to preventing sensitive-tooth pain.

There are a slew of constitutional amendments to consider, and you wont be able to gure them out if you wait until you step into the voting booth on Election Day to read them. Some folks have said that they are deceptively worded and bundled togeth er with no apparent reason other than to confuse. One thing is certain, you need to decide before voting day if you are to have any hope of making a truly in formed decision. Please do your part for democracy and do your homework! Election time will also mark the 50th anniversary of when Florida voters gave Floridas local governments Home Rule authority. Be on the lookout for any amendments or choices that could affect home rule in a negative way. It seems like every year the legislature tries to chip away at home rule and sometimes their efforts are successful. Things like tree ordinances, election dates, rules and regulations for vacation rentals and local businesses are best left to local govern ment. They know what the local needs are and when it comes to laws and reg ulations, one size does denitely not t all! Be on guard, vote wisely. Speaking of decisions that can have a lasting effect on your future, there will be a Town of White Springs Charter revision workshop on Monday, Oct. 29, at 5 p.m. at White Springs Town Hall. Mariela Garcia Ren don is the Executive Director of the Ham ilton County Tourist Development Council and she gets around the county and the state, learning about and promoting tour ism opportunities in Hamilton County.

She was totally ab sorbed with taking in the scene of the large crowd of cyclist tourists, and spent a good bit of time talking to members and board members of the Suwannee Bike Association. After about an hour, I left the gathering but Mariela was still there, keenly interested in experiencing and developing this valuable resource for White Springs and Hamilton County.

County Administrator Randy Harris asked the Board of County Commissioners at its Oct. 16 meeting if it was interested in trying to send manpower and equipment to the panhandle to help with cleanup efforts. Harris did have one caveat, though. The important thing to me is that its organized, he said. If were going to go, I want to know where were going spe cically, that we have a point of contact, that we know whats there when we get there. That way we can come up with our own gameplan for how long were going to have people there and then get them back. The board was in agreement to provide assistance if the county could. I support efforts if the county could help them out, District 2 Commissioner Clyde Fleming said. Chairman Ricky Gamble, too, was will ing to help out where needed. If weve got the ability to take a loader out there and send a couple people out there, he said. I dont have a problem with it. If they have equipment and no way of getting it there, we could also provide some transportation since we have the truck and trailer to get it there. Harris said he had been receiving email requests from numerous counties and the state about needing assistance. Gamble said he talked to a family mem ber of a commissioner in the panhandle who said every road in the county is cov ered by trees every few feet. They dont have the manpower and the machinery to get them moved and get it opened up, Gamble said. Working Forest Week The heart of forestry, Suwannee County is recognizing Working Forest Week this week. At the Oct. 16 meeting, the board adopt ed a resolution proclaiming Oct. 21-27 as Working Forest Week. The adopted resolution comes after Florida Forest Services Paul Williams, the countys senior forester, addressed the board about the importance of forests to the county and the Suwannee River Val ley. Suwannee County is very unique in this respect, Williams said thanking the board for its support. Suwannee County has the most private non-industrial forest land owners than any other county in Flor ida. You could say Suwannee County is the heart of forestry. Another highlight is we are the pine straw capital of the world, of the south east and of Florida. The Suwannee Valley started this pine straw operation and took it to the height that it has now become. Total, Williams said 125,000 jobs in Florida are connected to forestry opera tions with $25 billion in economic impact for the state. Lien agreement Also during the Oct. 16 meeting, the board agreed to a request for the satis faction of a judgement lien from John R. Skeirski.

The average farm real estate value in Florida remained lev el between 2017 and 2018, after increasing in six of the past seven years according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Farm land and farm buildings account for more than 80 percent of the value of as sets in the farm sector. Changes in land values can have important implications for both landowners and land seekers. The average farm real estate value in the United States, including land and buildings, more than doubled from $1,340/acre in 2004 to $3,140/acre in 2018. The average value rose $60/acre (1.9 percent) between 2017 and 2018. In Florida, the average farm real estate value increased from $2,920/acre in 2004 to $5,700 in 2017, but stayed the same in 2018. The current average value of Florida cropland is $6,810/acre, and the average value of Florida pasture land is $5,200/acre according to the USDA. Suwannee County has nearly 200,000 acres of farmland and more than 100,000 acres of timberland according to the USDA and Florida Department of Rev enue. According to the Census of Agri culture, the average market value of farm real estate in Suwannee County fell from $6,180/acre in 2007 to $4,014/acre in 2012. In Florida, the average value fell from $5,639/acre to $5,201/acre over that ve-year period, which coincided with the collapse of the U.S. real estate bubble. Su wannee County data from the 2017 Cen sus of Agriculture is not yet available. Rising farmland values improve the nancial position of farmland owners. A USDA study found that crop farmers tend to borrow more and purchase additional land during periods of farmland appre ciation. On the other hand, new farmers seeking land may nd it more challenging to purchase property when land values rise. Leasing can be a good option for both new and established farmers. In the U.S., 10 percent of farmland is leased. In Flori da, about 7 percent of farmland is leased. Leasing land can free up capital for other farm needs and reduce nancial risk com pared to purchasing land. On the other hand, a lease provides less long-term security and more limitations on what can be done with the land. There are various types of leases, including cash leases, crop share leases, ground leases and leases with option to purchase. The most recent data from the USDA show average farmland rental rates in Suwannee County of $31/acre for pastureland, $48/acre for non-irrigated cropland, and $200/acre for irrigated cropland. Other arrangements have been created to help new farmers access land or es tablished farmers keep land in farming. These include incubator farms, conserva tion easements, and leases with govern ment entities or nonprot organizations. In collaboration with American Farm land Trust and Farm Credit of Florida, UF/IFAS Extension has developed a new farmer short course called Accessing Land for Farming. The next course will run in November 2018 and will include an online component and a one-day work shop in Live Oak.

The Hornets face a Trenton (1-7) team having a down season. STATISTICALLY SPEAKING A look at the statistical leaders across the Suwannee Valley in passing, rushing and receiving (based on yardage) through the first nine weeks of the 2018 season. PLAYERS OF THE WEEK CARLTON HALL RB | SUWANNEE JAXSON BEACH QB | LAFAYETTE JAQUEZ MOORE WR | SUWANNEE Jack Howdeshell Talented receiver Ben Massey is hoping for a strong finish to his senior season. M AYO As the regular season winds down for the Lafayette High football team, Hornet fans wont want to miss a second of action in the upcoming weeks. Not only are the Hornets excited for a playoff push, this is the last chance to see the quarterback-receiver combination of Jaxson Beach and Ben Massey. Beach, a junior quarterback in his second full season as a starter, is putting up huge numbers again with 1829 yards passing, 962 yards rushing and a combined 31 touchdowns through nine games. Hes a tough runner who isnt afraid to barrel into defenders for a few extra yards. He also has the speed to outrun defenses and an accurate arm that can make all the throws. Combing all of Beachs talent together with the senior Massey, (1,728 career receiving yards, 28 touchdowns) who is playing in final high school games, has made for unforgettable football the past two seasons. There probably wont be a QB-wide receiver combination like Beach and Massey for a long time. Its fun playing with him because youre known as the dynamic duo, Massey said of competing alongside Beach. Jaxson is dynamic back there, and I can be dynamic as well. Hes a special guy. Most quarterbacks just arent athletic like that. What makes them even more dangerous is the relationship they have developed. Lafayette coach Joey Pearson spoke about the bond between the two. After two seasons, they have some little things they know about each other, Pearson said. Ben, as far as ways to get open and Jaxson as ways to find him. Ive seen that quarterback-receiver relationship and theyve been so successful together. When youve got guys that are all-state performers, it elevates the play of everybody. Preparing to face Lafayettes high-octane Beach, Massey lead Hornets into playoffs Rushed for 138 yards and two scores. Had an interception return for a touchdown and also rushed for more than 100 yards against Yulee. Ran for 94 yards and a touchdown on seven carries in the Trojans homecoming win. Helped guide an efficient Lafayette offense to a 47-8 win with 230 yards passing and 61 yards rushing. Series: Madison County leads 20-10 since 1964. Last meeting: The game was close last season up until the third quarter when Madison County pulled away. Notes: Homecoming game for the Bulldogs (5-3) comes against a formidable opponent in the 7-1 Cowboys. Madison County is deep once again with standout QB/ DB Travis Jay and some good backs who have combined for more than 2,000 yards rushing. DYNAMIC DUO Jack Howdeshell Jaxson Beach has been a dual-throat for Lafayette the past two seasons. AREA PASSING LEADERS Jaxson Beach, Lafayette 101-178-1829, 20 touchdowns Tyree Taylor, Suwannee 61-128-967, 9 touchdowns Jevin Johnson, Branford 34-77508, 4 touchdowns DeNandre Johnson, Hamilton County 9-49-246, 3 touchdowns Seth Heiderman, Branford 18-36-197, 4 touchdowns RUSHING Jaxson Beach, Lafayette 127962, 11 touchdowns Aaron McQuay, Branford 106773, 8 touchdowns Garris Edwards, Lafayette 100-751, 10 touchdowns Carlton Hall, Suwannee 112726, 7 touchdowns Dakota Hamm, Branford 73-480, 3 touchdowns RECEIVING Ben Massey, Lafayette 29-844, 13 touchdowns Richy James, Lafayette 24-507, 4 touchdowns Jaquary Pratt, Suwannee 23-471 4 touchdowns Aderias Ealy, Hamilton County 15-354, 6 touchdowns Adam Perry, Lafayette 24-332, 3 touchdowns offense is certainly a challenge. The Hornets have weapons across the field and they use a no-huddle offense that doesnt allow defenses a chance to rest. That offense also uses all sorts of formations, misdirection and gives Beach a chance to read defenses, and improvise. We can put on a show during games, buts its the work we do in practice that nobody sees thats why weve come so far, Beach said. I have a lot of freedom over our offense, so I can see things we can run to him (Massey) or possibilities to get him open I can make those calls and get him the ball. Its fun. He makes my job a lot easier. While Lafayette has struggled on defense this year, the offense has done its part to keep the Hornets with a winning record and a clear path to the playoffs. Every time the Hornets get the ball theres an expectation to score. Having Beach and Massey certainly helps. It makes you feel comfortable, LHS linebacker Blake Braswell said. If theres a busted play, odds are Ben is going to get the ball and its going to be alright. Lafayette linebacker Jarrett Pearson spoke about the connection between his standout quarterback and wide receiver. Sometimes receivers and quarterbacks can disagree on things, said Jarrett Pearson. Theyre usually always on the same page. They have such respect for each other. How good they each are at their position.

After NFEI (0-8) picked up 10 yards on its rst play, a high snap deected into the air off quarterback Deon Manick and HCHS defensive end Brantley Hawkins snatched it out of the air and rumbled 12 yards to put the Trojans at the Eagles 33. Four runs later Keyvon Webb scored from the 3 and the Trojans led 12-0 with less than four minutes gone. Hamilton kept rolling from there. The Trojans assembled a 14-play drive that milked 6:29 off the clock to take an 18-0 lead just before the rst quarter ended on the rst of Bristol Fosters two scoring runs, this one from the 1. He also scored on a 3-yard run in the fourth. Our focus was on running mostly, because you can shorten the game and weve got some good linemen and we wanted to get them the kind of snaps to get really good at what theyre doing, Clayton added. The Trojans did exactly that. Hamilton racked up 313 yards rushing on 40 carries, led by Webbs 94 yards on just seven totes. DeNandre Johnson and Nick Straughter also scored TD runs for the Trojans, both 1-yard scores. Johnsons came with 4:35 left in the rst half and one play after Jeremi ah Gibson (14) scooped up an NFEI fumble and returned it 57 yards. That came one play after Johnsons pass went through a receivers hands and was intercepted by Manick at the NFEI 1 and returned to the Hamilton 36. It was the only drive that the Trojans didnt score on. Johnson, though, did connect with Aderius Ealy for a 34-yard touchdown later in the rst half to put the Trojans up 32-0 at the intermission. That score was set up by a blocked punt by Haw kins. HCHS also recovered a fumble early in the fourth that set up the nal score. In addition to forcing the three turnovers, the Trojan defense held NFEI, which had scored just 40 points in its rst seven games and had its offensive woes con tinue Friday, to negative-1 yard of offense in the game, including minus-7 yards rushing on 18 carries. Cant beat that, Clay ton said. It was just a good win for the home folks. Continued From Page 1B Trojans the Bulldogs absolutely owned the second half in a 46-14 win at Yulee. Hes a dynamic play er, Suwannee coach Kyler Hall said of Moore. He made a great break on the ball to get the intercep tion. Really got everything going with the momentum. It was an emotional second half. Suwannee (5-3, 2-1) needed to play with some emotion after a sluggish start. The Bulldogs gained just 67 yards of offense in the rst half and went into the break tied at 7. On Yulees opening possession of the third quarter, Moore jumped in front of receiver Cole Richardson to come up with the interception and then ran 30 yards to pay dirt. From the start of the play, I felt like they were going to go to my side, Moore said. They threw it short and I read it per fectly and broke on the ball. After that it slowed down like a movie. Moore thought a change in attitude helped Suwan nee after halftime. First half we were at, he added. We werent having any fun. Second half we came together and it was like its about having fun do what your taught, play your assignment and have fun. Be a football player. After Moores pick-6, Suwannee looked like a different team. The Bulldogs went 54 yards on eight plays on their rst possession of the third quarter to score a touchdown and grab a 20-7 lead. Then it was time for the special teams unit to step up. Suwannee pounced on a kickoff that Yulee fumbled away, setting up a short eld for the Bull dogs offense.

OCTOBER 24 & 25, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 10B Nation Partisan divide, voter scramble mark midterm CNHI News Service Myra Baker of Mount Carmel, Penn sylvania, offers no apologies for her rein-the-belly support of President Donald Trump and stopping Democrats from rebounding against him in the Nov. 6 mid term elections. Baker, 64, said she believes it is crit ical Pennsylvania voters strongly afrm Trumps presidency as if he were on the ballot along with GOP candidates across the country. We need to keep the Congress Re publican because even if you dont like Trumps personality, the economy is good, he destroyed ISIS and he is giving us fair trade deals, she said. If the Dem ocrats control Congress theyll try to stop everything Trump wants to do. Mary Lou Davis brushes off Bakers fervor for Trump with a belief Pennsylva nians have come to their senses and will reject him this time in what the president denes as a referendum on his two years in ofce. Support for Republican candi dates is a vote for me Trump frequently asserts to re up voters. Davis is a retired school teacher and founder of the political activist group Indivisible Johnstown, a barely blue city in red Cambria County. A turnaround from Pennsylvanias narrow support of Trump in 2016 could occur as the states gerrymandered right-leaning rural con gressional districts were reset by the State Supreme Court to give more representa tion to left-leaning urban-suburban areas of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. Politics is personal, said Davis. The issues at the national level are going to impact every one of us. Those issues, Democrats contend, favor them due to concern over health care, education, immigration, taxes and income equality. Yet Republicans forecast their reach could go even wider and deeper than in 2016 because voters have a rosier outlook on the economy, national security and foreign policy. Trump won the White House by riding an unexpected wave of working class vot ers in Rust Belt and swing states such as Pennsylvania, Ohio, Iowa, Michigan and Florida along with traditionally red states in Americas heartland. CNHIs continuing Pulse of the Voter series tracking political sentiment this year by more than 100 community news papers in the Northeast, Midwest and the South indicates some Democratic gains in those states among marginal 2016 Trump voters, but few disillusioned core Trump supporters in traditional red states. Both parties agree the winner of the midterm battle for Congress depends on voter turnout in the 2016 battleground states and others where the races are close for House and Senate seats. Democrats are counting on young voters, women and minorities. All 435 House seats are on the midterm ballot, but only 50 of those are considered competitive. Democrats need to keep the 194 seats they now hold and win 24 more for majority control of the House. Nation al polls rate their chances fair to good. It would take a blue wave for Republi cans to lose the Senate. While they own only a 51-49 edge now, 10 Democrat seats are up for grabs in states that Trump won. To gain control, Democrats need to hold those seats and pick off GOP seats in states like Nevada, Arizona and Texas. Pollsters predict that likely wont happen. The informal CNHI survey showed Trump his conduct in ofce and his policies occupy the foreground. He has stoked his core with an average of three political rallies a month this year, bashing the crazy Democrats in his traveling road show. Republicans and Democrats anticipate higher voter turnout than usual for this midterm, in part, because of the conten tious partisan ght over Trumps appoint ment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Democrats expect women voters will rally to their side; Republicans expect strong response from their base of conser vatives, men and women. Trent England, executive vice presi dent of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs, said a gap in Republican voter motivation existed in his state until Senate Democrats fought to prevent Kavanaughs appointment with an eleventh hour sexual assault accusation by Christine Blasey Ford when both were in high school 35 years earlier. That enthusiasm gap seems to be eliminated by all this harsh treatment of Kavanaugh by Senate Democrats, said England. Trey Watson, spokesman for the Ken tucky Republican Party, said Democrats foolishly used Fords allegation as a des perate gender ploy to derail Kavanaughs appointment. The way the Democrats handled it has really red up our base and gotten them excited to get out and vote, said Watson. Marisa McNee, spokeswoman for the Kentucky Democratic Party, sees the Kavanaugh controversy as a plus for her party among teachers. She said it sort of collided with their anger over unfair wages and other inequities. Weve had people telling us they were infuriated by what they saw as the Repub licans very rough treatment of Dr. Ford, said Mc Nee. And also the way the president attacked her and the gloating by Mitch McConnell (GOP Senate pres ident). Trump publicly mocked Fords Senate Judiciary Committee testimony at a rally in Mississippi. Elizabeth Gray, a Bucknell University student in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, said the Kavanaugh hearings created a wakeup buzz among young voters. Unless you are really into politics most people dont Sipping coffee at the only Dunkin Donuts in Athens, Alabama, George An thony, 71, said what matters to voters of all ages is the economy. The retired utility worker said Trumps deregulation of fossil fuel rules has created jobs and hope. I know it is not good for the envi ronment, said Anthony. But it is good for the economy because when people are working they are spending, buying homes and cars and things. Wayne Lagrone, 69, of Meridian, Mis sissippi, says both parties are moving to the left. If you look at where the Dem ocratic Party is today, you could much easier identify them as socialists, he said. And if you look at the Republican party, theyve taken the position that was lled by the Democratic Party from 25 years ago. Its left conservatives out in the cold. Then theres Georgia, where voters are weighing whether to put a black woman in the governors ofce for the rst time. Democrat Stacy Abrams is in a tight race with Republican Brian Kemp. The contest is as much over voting rights as policies. Kemp is Georgias Secretary of State vote. The parents fear deportation under the presidents zero tolerance immigration policy. We have to have strong borders. We have to protect our country, said Zeucis Martinez. I agree criminals need to be out. But, he added, Trump and leaders of both parties need to pass laws that allows longtime undocumented immigrants who are good families to obtain citizenship and stay in the United States. Those kids and their parents came here to make a better life, said Mrs. Martinez. These kids can be the future of this country. If we hurt their future, we hurt our future. Wilmon Stanley, 83, a Korean War veteran from Valdosta, Georgia, was born into a segregated society. He waits for the day that people look at one another on an individual basis, not what race or group of people they come from. He might well wonder when that day will come. The CNHI survey indicated the political divide in the nations heart land has escalated during Trumps two years in the White House, devolving to local government on discussions about education and other topics. Paula Pleasant, a teacher in Greenup County, Kentucky, said public education is under attack in several states, af fected by polarization of ideology and a coarsening of political discussion. Teach er strikes in West Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona and Colorado underscored the strife over salaries and tax support. I just want us united. You can agree to disagree, she said. I just want com promise. Weve got to nd a common goal. Thats a constructive message many heartland voters echoed in the overly adversarial relationship between Re publicans and Democrats and yet a message that seems to fall on plugged political ears heading into the midterm elections. Bill Ketter is CNHIs senior vice president for news. Contact him at wketter@cnhi.com. think about what it really means until something happens, said Gray. My fear is that no one would care about this until Roe vs. Wade is overturned. In liberal Massachusetts, even Repub lican Gov. Charlie Baker takes issue with many of the presidents policies. Baker is expected to cruise to re-election despite accusations of traitor by Trump loyalists. Gail Burke, 79, of Peabody, Massachu setts, isnt deterred by the states deep blue tradition. Shes formed a group of conservatives at her retirement commu nity called We the People. She also co-produces a public affairs show for cable access TV called Whats Happen ing. Burke wants Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren held accountable by the voters for her leftist views, arguing that War ren is running for president before shes even re-elected to the U.S. Senate. Its important for people to get more than one side of a story, said Burke. and has been criticized by Abrams for im plementing strict voting rules to ostensi bly combat fraud. Abrams has demanded he resign as the states chief election of cial, pointing to his disenfranchising of minorities and new voters that she needs to win. His ofce has suspended the voter registrations of 53,000 mostly black res idents. In the northern Georgia city of Dalton known as the carpet capital of the world, Hispanics represent 49 percent of the community. Zeucis and Liz Martinez moved there from Venezuela 30 years ago and describe themselves as Republi cans. They said no Hispanic vote can be taken for granted, though Trumps deri sive language about Hispanic immigrants and the separation of children from their parents does not help the GOP. They said Hispanics, many of them il legals, put down roots in Dalton long ago to work in the carpet mills, and had chil dren in the U.S., many of whom can now r rfntbfrfffnfftbff rrf frnfrrrfrrffrnr brffrnbrrbfrtrb rrrtffr nr n frffn fnfnbbr brtrn tbrfrnbrt tt

OCTOBER 24 & 25, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 11B Nation tom.lynn@gaflnews.com Bob Harlan of Valdosta, Georgia, worries about what will happen if America doesnt defend its culture and doesnt bring back meaningful, quality jobs. Harlan retired from the Air Force in the early 1990s, but continued working until two years ago. The 65-year-old said he wants a candidate who will bring back jobs, someone who understands the potential of American greatness. Many years ago, young children repaired bicycles and then they got jobs at factories doing things, but all that dis appeared, Harlan said. Now, the Chinese children are repair ing bicycles and they are learn ing how to industrialize. Our generation that knows how to make things happen is rapidly declining, while other countries are defending their culture and going forward. Were really missing the boat because of that. Harlan said he wants a candi date who will bring new busi nesses to communities strug gling to find work. And he said he believes jobs are tied to immigration. When he first moved to Valdosta in the 1990s, there were few Hispanics, he said. Through the years, the His panic population has greatly increased all through South Georgia. Whats slowly happening is that Americans are refusing to do certain jobs, Harlan said. As a youth, me and my friends would look forward to work ing the fields to make money during the summer. He said more children are doing absolutely nothing. They are not working after-school or during summer breaks. Amer ican youths should work these jobs. Harlan said Hispanics are taking over America in the same way Europeans took the country from Native Ameri cans. The British didnt (invade) in a mean, hateful way, and it wasnt racist. It wasnt any thing, Harlan said. Europe was overcrowded and they basically said This is a good thing, and I want a part of this good thing. Well, the problem is the Indians were there, but over a period of time they ba sically conquered the Americas and displaced the Indians. Conquest didnt happen over night then and isnt hap pening over night now, Harlan said, adding European Amer icans are declining and could face the same situation as Na tive Americans. Harlan attributes the decline to Americans losing what he calls the gutsy, get-with-it. As the Europeans are slowly declining, both in population and with that drive, I see the Hispanics coming in, inch-byinch, and Im not saying its an evil thing, Harlan said. I think its the natural order of things. Survival of the fittest. Harlans concerns about immigration and jobs are not unique. The 2016 election proved that. President Donald Trump tapped into concerns missed by the media. We want to know what matters most to voters. With midterm elections less than a month away, we hope not to be surprised by the outcomes this time around. Thats why we are taking the Pulse of the Voters with our sister papers through out the region and the nation. In this third edition of Pulse of the Voters, we want to know what matters most to voters and what draws them to the polls. We conducted grassroots interviews in an environment where subjects felt comfortable so we can report on the opin ions of local voters. The project is being mirrored in communities across the country served by more than 100 CNHI newspapers in sim ilar-sized communities, from Florida to Iowa, from New Hampshire to Texas. Immigration and Population Much of the population growth in Whitfield County, Georgia, has been fueled by an influx of Hispanic workers. The countys 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, Georgia, the largest city and county seat of Whit field County, has seen its popu lation grow almost as fast. The Hispanic workers, many of them immigrants, are em ployed by floor-covering mills. The Hispanic population rose from the low single digits to an estimated 49 percent of the 2017 population of Dalton and 35.5 percent of the county pop ulation. Zeucis and Lis Martinez, who work for a Dalton-area school system, came to the Georgia city about 30 years ago. Born in Venezuela and a former member of the military, Zeucis Martinez was a pioneer in Spanish-language broadcast ing in Whitfield County. They said they have long identified as Republicans, but he said the partys stance on immigration and Trumps language about immigrants, especially those from Mexico, concern them. I agree we have to have strong borders. I agree we have to protect our country. I agree that criminals need to be out, Zeucis Martinez said. But he said many illegal im migrants have set down roots in the community and have children who are American cit izens. He said he would like to see the government find a way to identify the good families and help them gain legal status while removing criminals. Lis Martinez said her con cerns are for the children, both those born here who could see their parents deported and those brought to the United States early in life who know no other country. Those kids, their parents came here to make a better life, she said. These kids can be the future of this country. If we hurt their future, we hurt our future. Meanwhile, some people in the north-central Alabama com munity of Cullman believe the presidents stance on immigra tion has merit. The mood was exemplified on a warm September evening in Karmas Coffee House as Alex Chaney settled in with a single shot of espresso. Chaney of Cullman, Ala bama, said he is frustrated with the lingering immigration de bate. Ive worked with clients to help them with becoming citizens, and its incredibly expensive and a long process, Chaney said. There are a lot of ideas from creating easier paths to citizenship to somehow al lowing those already here to be come citizens. But I dont know if I agree with rewarding people for breaking the law. Some people are upset about the wall the president wants, and it can probably do some good, but the real answer the long-term answer is in establishing an effective policy that is manageable and is in the interest of our country. While Chaney sees a lot of lines drawn in the sand, he stressed more people should weigh the efforts of the pres ident, instead of lashing out immediately. Social Issues Colquitt County, Ga., Sher iffs Ofce Sgt. Jerome Burgess is dead set against abortion. Support of abortion rights is a non-starter for the 48-year-old veteran ofcer, who reckons his last vote for a Democrat was in 2004, when he supported con servative Democratic U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop. Any pro-choice candidate will not get a second look, he said. And Burgess of Moultrie, Georgia, said the country should concentrate on its prob lems rst. I think we need to be more concerned about what goes on in our country before we worry about other countries, Bur gess said. I think government should be small. I dont think government should be over bearing, over-regulating. He said he remains a strong Trump supporter and predicts congressional gains for Repub licans in November. Burgess said Trump has kept his word and has done things he said he would. Does he get results? Bur gess said. Yeah, he gets re sults. I do my own homework. I can make my own decisions and do my own research. Youve got to choose the lesser of two evils. Abortion is also a top is sue for Baptist preacher John Werner. The Tifton, Georgia, resident identies as a conser vative, but not necessarily a Republican. The stance that the candi dates have on that (abortion), to me, is generally a telltale sign of their views almost across the board on other issues as well, Werner said. Im very pro-life. Thats generally one of the rst things I look for. Libertarian View Caleb Martin, a 30-year-old Meridian, Mississippi, native, mostly identies as Libertarian, placing an emphasis on social issues and conservative eco nomic policies. I feel like there are social problems that deal with race and religion and gender and sex things like that that the gov ernment shouldnt be involved with whatsoever. Because, to me, thats personal freedom. I mean, I guess not race, per se, because you dont really get to choose, Martin said. Socially, Im very liberal. Economically, Im a little more conservative. Martin said he hadnt been closely following Mississippis congressional races. Its a bit disheartening though to see what you have to choose from. And a lot of that has to do with how much mon ey they have behind them more so than the platform that theyre standing on, Martin said. The hyper-conservative na ture of Mississippis politics pushes some of the more liber al, younger populace out of the state, Martin said. I think that Mississippi being a conservative state and being a red state thats why I think you have a lot of Millennials that leave the state, Martin said. They dont identify socially with the people that are running the state and they dont identify economically with the people who are running the state. I cant tell you how many friends from high school I have that dont live here anymore. I have more friends living in California and places like Atlanta and New Orleans and places like that than I actually have living here in Meridian. As for President Donald Trump, Martin said he feels Trump comes across as crass, something he didnt agree with, and his tariff choices hurt Martins job in the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning industry. In the industry that I work in, all thats done is drive costs up which has made it harder for contractors to compete; its made it harder for homeowners to afford repairs to their heating and air conditioning, Martin said. The problem with that is when you introduce tariffs into the society and businesses, companies that have absolutely nothing to do with aluminum and copper will use it as an excuse to increase their prices just to make an extra percent. Ten, 15 per cent. So Im not really sure if its working. Martin said while countries such as Canada and Denmark had found ways to make gov ernment health care work, the Affordable Care Act doesnt meet the mark. I think the ACA was a great idea in concept. I think it was executed poorly and I dont nec essarily agree with being ned for not purchasing something I dont feel I necessarily need, Martin said about the individual mandate. Now my deductible is so high that I dont even reach it by the end of the year half the time. If I were to put my wife and my daughter on my insurance plan, I wouldnt bring home any money every month because it would be $800 a pay period for all three of us to be covered. A gun owner and former Boy Scout, Martin said he agrees there could be a little more stringent guidelines for re arms. A lot of people will argue that, Oh, lets ban cars next. OK, look, cars have a specic purpose. Cars can be used as a weapon, but their specic pur pose is to transport people and things from one place to another in a quick, efcient manner, Martin said. Guns have one sole purpose: they are designed and made to kill things. If you have to have a license and you have to pass a test in order to drive a car why do we not have the same process for own ing, literally, something that is designed only to kill stuff? Robust Economy Tom Berry, a 70-year-old re tired municipal administrator in Thomasville, Georgia, said he cast his first vote when he was in the Navy during President Richard Nixons re-election campaign. Man, was the country in an uproar, he said. Europe hated the U.S. military. Wed pull into a port and there would be bomb threats. It was terrible. Were almost just as bad na tionally as we were then. Still an active voter, Berry decried the inability or intran sigence of politicians to work together. It encompasses all the is sues, he said. It is the worst time in politics that I remem ber. Its certainly state and local. The economy worries Berry most. I want a solid, vibrant econ omy for my children as they raise their families, he said. Berry said opportunities need to be created for people, partic ularly young people, where they can excel. Not many people are looking at what is going to happen as many jobs are being replaced by machines. Its going to create jobs on the other side to delve all of this, he said. But there are not going to be as many of them and you are going to have to be fairly well educated to have those jobs. Retired from the Common wealth Edison Company in Joliet, Ill., George Anthony has seen how environmental regu lations affect the industry, not ing his company went from 700 employees to 50 when it con verted from a coal-burning to a natural gas-burning facility. I worked in a fossil gen erations station for 35 years and we burned coal, he said. I know it is not good for the environment, but it is good for the economy because when people are working they are spending, buying homes and cars and things which, in turn, makes the economy stronger. As a Republican, the Ath ens, Alabama, resident said he believes the presidents poli cies renewed an economy that faltered during the previous administration. I believe (the economy) is robust, from everything I can see from building to trades to everything. It is going hot and heavy, he said. As for immigration, Anthony said he believes America ben efits from its immigrant pop ulation but would like people attempting to cross the border go through proper channels. He said he thinks America should be an asylum for immigrants fleeing danger and abuse in their native countries. We have a moral obligation to protect people whose lives are in danger, he said. That is one of the principles that has made this country great. rfntbtrfft ttrfttfrfttrfb tbfr
