The SVTA had just been investigated of reported un alloyed compensatory time payouts to former SVTA administrator Gwen Pra and former director of operations William Steele before a grand jury found no criminal charges. The authority was also running a decit when Larry Sessions took over as interim administrator in April 2015. Those problems have been xed and Sessions and the STVA have a shiny glass trophy as proof. The Florida Commission for the Transportation Dis advantaged recently named the SVTA as the 2018 Rural CTC (Community Transpor tation Coordinator) of the Year. This means a lot, Ses sions said. Recognition is always great, but Im not real big on personal recogni tion. But part of the involve ment of this whole team. Its a proud moment for us.

OCTOBER 31 & NOVEMBER 1, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 3A Remembering Suwannee Although I do not personally cele brate Halloween, as a historian, I am aware of the interest in historical ghost stories and the like. Todays article will vary from my usual and delve into ghost stories and other ghoulish events in our history, with a little historical background. The state of Florida after the Civil War ended in 1865 was full of prob lems; thousands of young men had been killed or horribly injured during the war, the economy was wrecked and/or changed due to the outlawing of slavery, and government ofcials had been replaced. Over the next dozen years, Florida saw a series of Reconstruction governments that bankrupted the state and caused further injury to the economy. When Gov ernor George Drew of neighboring Madison County was elected rst post-Reconstruction governor in 1877, he insti tuted what was called the convict leasing system. Basical ly, the state would bid out convicts to the highest bidder to provide workers. This saved the state money because they didnt have to house and care for the prisoners (other than periodic health checks), and it was cheaper for the compa nies than hiring regular workers. It was a win-win situation, except for the convicts, that is J. C. Powell was captain of the States convict camp in Suwannee County during the late 1870s and 1880s, when Suwannee County had half of all the States prisoners working in timber, turpentine and railroad-building. He wrote a book entitled American Siberia about his experi ences, which I have recommended before in my articles. In the theme of Halloween, one particular story is creepy, and I simply quote Powells own words: It was the ghost of a little child that came to me, and it happened thus: My brother and myself both had houses near the camp. My wife had been for some time wishing to visit her family in South Georgia, and nally made the trip, taking with her the children, including our youngest boy, a baby ve months old, to whom I was much attached. All through the arrangements I was oppressed with a vague and indenable presentiment of calamity, but as I could give no reason for it, I could not well oppose the visit. They had been gone three days, and at night, after counting the men and going through the usual routine at the camp, I went home and retired. But I could not sleep. The shadowy forebodings that had weighed upon me grew into a keen sense of danger I knew not what and thrilled me with ap prehension. Finally I fell into a troubled doze, from which I was suddenly awakened at about eleven oclock by hearing my baby cry, plainly and distinctly, seemingly right in the room. I knew the childs voice in a thousand, and thinking my wife had returned, I sprang out of bed. I was alone. Completely nonplussed, I walked to the door and listened. Meantime the crying had ceased, and at length I persuaded myself that my senses had tricked me, and went back to bed. The next moment the cry sounded again, loudly, pite ously my childs own voice, and somewhere in that room. I was wide awake, and when I found positively that no one was there I put on my clothes, and greatly agitated, went to my brothers house, where I told him and his wife the story, adding that I was positive that something had happened to my baby. Of course they laughed at me, insisted that I was dreaming, and nding the matter altogether too incredible for belief, I returned home, where I tossed on the bed until morning, listening in vain for a repetition of the cry. I could not shake off the memory of the visita tion, or the conviction that it conveyed a warning, and during the morning I told my brother repeatedly that I was sure some accident had happened to the baby. Before noon a boy came galloping up on horseback with a telegram in his hand. There is the bad news, I said; and so it was. The message was from my wife, calling me to Georgia and telling me that our little child had been burned to death. My distress, as I instantly started, may be imagined, but surely not described, for the certitude was impressed upon me that the dead childs last cry for help had been to me. It was raining hard, but I did not notice it. Yet this storm fol lowed me like a Nemesis, delayed me twice by washouts, and when I arrived the baby was buried. The rest is soon told. My wife had taken the child to bed, had missed it in the night, and it was found dead in the open hearth where it had crawled and fallen. It was the night I heard the cry, and happened, as nearly as could be judged, at about eleven oclock. Another, more humorous, ghoulish story occurred a couple of decades later and happened to one of Suwannee Countys more well-known citizens. Thomas Dowling was born in 1851 in Hamilton County. By the 1880s, he had moved to Suwannee County to work in logging. He built a Ghoulish history in Suwannee County T ravis Henr y, AAMS Financial Advisor 123 Howard Street Liv e Oak, FL 32064 386-364-1657 tra vis .henr y@edw ardjones .com www .edw ardjones .com rf ntbn rf fntb FINANCIAL FOCUS rf fbtf fr ftr frb nff ffb tfrtf trfrffb trnrt frr ff rr tb rffff fb ttrfffrrb fftr rffft bfftf frfrrf ftrff tf fn frf nr nb fffr rf fttf frtf r rft ffn fftt bfttf ft ftfb rfrffr fr fr ffbfrftf tr tf trftb ftf rtfr fb ff ff tf fbf ftff rttt ffb rfrft fffr ttf tffbft rfr trfb ntft fttt tbrff tf f 163745-1 163340-1Sensitive teeth can be treated. The type of treatment will depend on what is causing the sensitivity. Your dentist may suggest one of a variety of treatments: Desensitizing toothpaste: This contains compounds that help block transmission of sensation from the tooth surface to the nerve, and usually requires several applications before the sensitivity is reduced. Fluoride gel: An in-ofce technique that strengthens tooth enamel and reduces the transmission of sensations. A crown, inlay or bonding: These may be used to correct a aw or decay that results in sensitivity. Surgical gum graft: If gum tissue has been lost from the root, this will protect the root and reduce sensitivity. Root canal: If sensitivity is severe and persistent and cannot be treated by other means, your dentist may recommend this treatment to eliminate the problem.362-6556 (800) 829-6506 602 Railroad Ave. Live Oak, FLHERBERT C.

MANTOOTH TREATING SENSITIVE TEETH LIVE OAK The City of Live Oak will honor its veterans with its fth annual Veterans Day parade in a few weeks. The parade will begin at 9 a.m. Nov. 12 at Suwannee Elementary School and will run north on Ohio Ave. to Howard St. Everyone is invited to attend the event, which will feature bands, oats and special guests including man local veterans and military vehicles. This years grand mar shals are retired Command Sergeant Major Larry D. Holland and former spe icalist Charles McIntosh, both deployed during Desert Storm. For those wishing to participate in the parade, applications may be picked up at the Suwannee River Regional Librarys Live Oak branch and turned back in at the library or the Harry C. Gray II Memorial Ameri can Legion Post 107, 10726 142nd Street in McAlpin. Following the parade, a commemorative ceremony will be held at the Live Oak Cemetery at 11 a.m. The ceremony will be ran by the American Legion and the DAV Chapter 126. At noon, the Live Oak Elks Lodge and Garrison Farms will be holding their sixth annual Salute to Vet erans luncheon at the Elks Lodge, 415 E. Howard St. All veterans, active duty, National Guard, reserve sol diers and family members are invited to a free meal of smoked chicken, BBQ beans, cole slaw, bread and a drink. Veterans Day parade, dinner planned huge sawmill in Live Oak in 1888 and the Citys rst wa terworks, among other accomplishments. Mr. Dowling was one of the rst people in Florida, and almost certainly in Live Oak, known to have owned an au tomobile. It was a steam-powered version that was steered by a handle, not a wheel, and the engine would leave a cloud behind the vehicle as it traveled. On the rst day Mr. Dowling drove his new Toledo Steamer through the streets of Live Oak (circa 1903), he caused such a stir that Sam McGinniss, a janitor in the Suwannee Democrat building, thought that the devil had come to get him, fell to his knees in the street and prayed! After dying at the relatively young age (especially in light of all his accomplishments) of 59, Ive been told that Mr. Dowlings ghost still haunts his former home, now The 406 on Duval restaurant. People have claimed to see his ghost standing on the balcony overlooking the front door, or looking through the windows on the top oor. More next week!

The project is a feder ally funded safety related project. Hundreds of teeth found in Downtown Valdosta wall State & Region rf amanda.usher@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. Construction workers bit off more than they could chew last week when they discov ered teeth buried in a building wall. Workers were readying commercial space at the T.B. Converse Building, located on North Patterson Street in Downtown Valdosta, when they found an estimated 1,000 teeth buried in a second oor wall Oct. 23. A photo of the ndings had been shared almost 150 times on Facebook as of 1 p.m. Oct. 25, sparking social media interest. Dustin Merriman, project manager for Converse, con rmed crew members have disposed of the teeth. Amidst this discovery, the question as to how the teeth got into the wall has been raised. Harry Evans, researcher for the Historical Society, said the Converse Building was constructed in 1900. Its rst tenant was Dr. Clarence Whittington, a dentist. Evans said another tenant was Dr. Lester G. Youmans, who remained in Converse until at least 1930. Youmans came to Valdosta in 1911, Evans said. Ellen Hill, Valdosta Main Street director, said the downtown agency caught news of the teeth through so cial media and began research into the buildings history. From what we could tell, that building was the orig inal location of Vinson and Barnes Drug Store, which then turned into Barnes Drugs. ... They were on the rst oor of that building, she said. She said that, according to her ndings, above Vinson and Barnes was an ofce space on the second oor and lodging space on the third oor. A receipt, retrieved recently by Valdosta dentist Dr. Pat Powell from an antique store, shows a Dr. L.G. You mans dated June 12, 1928, Powell said. As far as the address, all it says is over Vinson Drug Store. Telephone number is 118, how about that, Powell said. Hill said the receipt was for a tooth extraction. Were trying to put puzzle pieces together, so what were thinking is that the dentist that was above the drug store was the Dr. Youmans that we have the receipt from, she said. Greensboro and Carrolton, two Georgia cities, both have had buildings where teeth have been found in the walls, Hill said. She said those buildings were former dental ofces. Im not sure if it was a common practice between dentists at that time, but its very strange that there were two other people that said, Hey, weve had that happen, too, she said. Its been suggested that the Lowndes County Historical Society receive the teeth though Donald Davis, Historical Society executive director, couldnt conrm this. The museum would be pleased to receive the teeth; however, it has not been ofcially conrmed to us that they would be offered, he said. VPD Lt. Adam Bembry said nothing has been reported to the police department as of press time. So far, we have not been notied or have located any evidence of a crime, Bembry said. ntbtttbr tt rff tttbttt tttnttt ttttttbt tt t Questions?

SEE ARGUMENTS, PAGE 15A It has been sad for me watching how Halloween has slowly been changing from the way it used to be when I was a kid. Fewer and fewer children go out on a spooky night at the end of October to knock on their neighbors doors in the search for candy. One thing that has helped ease the pain of the slow death of trickor-treating has been the rise of what is now the largest festival of the year for the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. Since 2013, when the String Cheese Incident moved their Hulaween show to the SOS Music Park, the event has morphed into the huge draw that it is today. I have written about the many talented musical acts that grace the various stages for this event before. This year, I would like to focus on all of the many things that are not music that make the Hulaween experience the reason that people travel from all across the country to take part in this festival. The fun started for me on Wednesday, at the pre-pre party taking place at the Music Hall. It was incredible to see the long line of cars ling into the park on the Wednesday before the show. I gladly paid $20 to get into the Music Hall once I heard that all of the proceeds from this part of the event were going to the victims of Hurricane Michael. Even thought this is not supposed to be about the mu sic this time, I have to give a shout out to CBDB, who I saw perform on Wednesday night. They performed Led Zeppelins Fool in the Rain as well as anyone since... well, Led Zeppelin. Then, later in their set, they did an incredible rendition of The Immigrant Song. I could tell this was going to be a memorable Hula. One of my favorite things about Hulaween is that it is so much like one of those choose-your-own-adventure books that you might have read as a child. No two people will likely have exactly the same experience. Thursday night had me checking out what it was like at the Silent Disco. After that odd but thrilling experience, I got my rst real taste of Spirit Lake. The art that surrounds that magical portion of the park just keeps getting more and more impressive and fun. Even though it was 3 in the morning, there were still few spots to be had at the Spirit Lake Casino. The Casino was decorated to look like it was a very old casino. The dealers wore what looked like what might have been worn in Vegas in the 50s or 60s. One could easily spend hours admiring the art during the daytime, only to nd that each exhibit takes on a completely different feel after sunset. I was also glad to see that the Yoga Tent, aka The Oasis, was wisely moved to the other side of the lake, away from the hustle and bustle of the Spirit Lake area. At an herbalism class at the Oasis, I met a woman who drove from Alaska to come to Hula. It is hard to describe what it is, but Su wannee Hulaween has plenty of it. People are literally willing to drive from anywhere to come and enjoy this festival. If you want to see Jamaroqui play one of their few North American appearances, or you want to see Janelle Monae do a bit of James Brown in her set, you can do that. You want to see String Cheese and other jam bands jam, you can do that. You want to see some unique visual effects that go with the sounds on stage, you got it. You want to try more food choices than you could possibly try in one weekend, you could do that too. You want to see some amazing works of art; you could do that as well. About the only thing you couldnt do was be bored at this years Hula. There was far too much going on for that. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf A tradition that hopefully never ends Democrats are hoping the coming election will give them a majority in the House of Representatives. Republicans and much of our nation dread that prospect. My question is: What would a House majority mean for the Democrats? Lets look at it. To control the House of Represen tatives, Democrats must win at least 218 seats, which many predict as being likely. To control the Senate, Democrats must win enough seats to get to 51, which many predict is un likely. Lets say the Democrats do take the House. If they were to pass a measure that Republicans in both houses didnt like and President Donald Trump didnt like, ei ther, he could use his veto pen. To override Trumps veto, Democrats would need to meet the U.S. Constitutions re quirement that they muster a two-thirds vote in the House of Representatives (290 votes) and a two-thirds vote in the Senate (67 votes). Neither would be likely. Its quite a challenge to override a presidential veto. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was the veto king, with 635 vetoes. Only nine of them were overridden. President Grover Cleveland vetoed 584 congressional measures and was overridden only seven times. If the House Democrats were to do all that they promise to do and if President Trump were to marshal the guts of Presidents Roosevelt and Cleveland both Democrats, I might add the next two years would be a sight to behold. But wait! Democrats are pushing for the elimination of the Electoral College and having presidents chosen by majority rule. Might they call for the same for all political decisions? That way, it would require only a simple ma jority vote, rather than two-thirds, to override a presiden tial veto. The Founding Fathers had utter contempt for majori ty rule. They saw it as a form of tyranny. In addition to requiring a supermajority to override a presidential veto, our Constitution has other anti-majority provisions. Pro posing an amendment to the Constitution requires a twothirds vote in each house of Congress or two-thirds of state legislatures to vote for it. On top of that, it requires three-fourths of state legislatures for ratication of a con stitutional amendment. Election of the president is done not by a majority popular vote, much to the disappoint ment of the left, but by the Electoral College. Having two houses of Congress places another obstacle to majority rule. Fifty-one senators can block the wishes of 435 representatives and 49 senators. As mentioned earlier, our Constitution gives the president veto power to thwart the wishes of a majority in each house of Con gress. It takes two-thirds in each house of Congress to override the presidents veto. The Founders recognized that we need government; however, they also recognized that the essence of gov ernment is force and that force is evil. To reduce the potential for evil, they thought government should be as small as possible. They intended for us to have a limited republican form of government wherein human rights precede government and there is rule of law. Ordinary citizens and government ofcials are accountable to the same laws. Government intervenes in civil society only to protect its citizens against force and fraud; it does not intervene in cases of peaceable, voluntary exchange. By contrast, in a democracy, the majority rules either directly or through its elected representatives. The law is whatever the government deems it to be. Rights may be granted or taken away. For those Americans who see majority rule as sacro sanct, ask yourselves how many of your life choices you would like settled by majority rule. Would you want the kind of car you own to be decided through a democratic process? What about decisions as to where you live, what clothes you purchase, what food you eat, what entertain ment you enjoy and what wines you drink? Im sure that r The arguments against majority rule Breast Cancer Awareness Month ran throughout October. The Suwannee Democrat, Jasper News and Mayo Free Press has shared stories containing in formation about the deadly disease and stories of womens struggles with breast cancer in the latest edition of the Suwannee Valley Scene magazine. Every October, the number of pink ribbons at tests to the number of North Florida women who have survived, who are battling breast cancer and those who lost the ght. Pink ribbons remind us of how many families and businesses have been affected by breast can cer. October reminds us of just how many women we know and love, those who are co-workers, neighbors, friends and family, who are battling the disease. Breast cancer pays no heed to socio-economics, race or age. Breast cancer can strike any woman, at any time. Breast Cancer Awareness Month should not be viewed as a topic to be considered for a few weeks each year in the fall then ignored the remaining 11 months of each year. As too many women and families know, as the Democrat, News and Free Press have seen too of ten with stories about North Florida women, breast cancer strikes women every day throughout the year. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is about raising awareness, raising funds, sharing information and needs. But its not just about October. The month is about reminding us that funds must be raised, precautions must be taken and the battle will continue being fought each and every day until there is a cure.

SEE ABRAMS, PAGE 15A Opinion A PAGE 7 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf GRIFFIN, Ga. Life hap pens, Stacey Abrams instructs a small but boisterous crowd in a sun-drenched park south of At lanta. She says: Your car breaks down. Your child gets sick. Could happen on election day. So, vote early. Today In her campaign to be the rst Demo crat elected Georgias governor since 1998, and Americas rst African-American female gover nor, she, even more than most Democrats, is depending on low propensity voters, prodding to the polls many who have rarely voted in midterm elections. Chatting on her campaign bus she exudes Yale Law School and the University of Texas Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, uent about issues and droll about her mothers reaction to my trajec tory of downward economic mobility when she left the practice of law to enter politics, rising to be mi nority leader of the state House of Representatives. In front of a crowd, she is the thinking persons Dr. Phil telling the story of one of her ve siblings (the others include a U.S. district judge and an evolution ary biologist), her bipolar brother who when he left prison left health care behind. Raised in Mississippi, Abrams and her family moved to Atlanta when her parents decided to train for the Methodist ministry. When she was invited to a reception at the governors mansion for high school valedictorians, the guard at the gate tried to turn away her and her parents because having arrived by bus they seemed misplaced. Her father, she tells her listeners, told the guard where he would spend eternity if he did not improve his decision-making skills. She adds that her family resided in the least afuent neighborhood of an afuent school district in order to have access to a good school. Her crowd laughs when she says, You should not have to have a degree in cartography to get a good education in Georgia. Georgia is one of 17 states that rejected Medicaid expansion under Obamacare. This, she says, costs the state $8 million a day and threatens rural hos pitals, eight of which have closed and 21 others are threatened. So, she shes for votes on Christian radio stations that have mostly white rural audiences.

When is the public notication? What happens to government transparency? Why are they raising the rates? Are they going to x the fact that water is orange and discolored all over town? Are they going to x the fact that the water is heavy mineralized and leaves spots? What is going on? The city needs to answer. Editors note: The Live Oak City Council approved a three-year increase to water rates in 2016 following a lengthy public discussion and has been discussed the past two years during the budget process as well. The increase was recommended by the Florida Rural Water Association. The End Justies the Means, summarizes Dr. Wil liams speculative column on whether price gouging is Evil. His Holiness never says if it is but sees value in individual opportunities to acquire temporary wealth. In his scenario, eeing Hurricane Florence, the mo mentarily wealthy are gas station managers who help save us from ourselves by incentivizing conservation and motivating escape plans.

People in small towns and rural communities across our country made their voices heard, and elected ofcials took notice. This year will be just as important for rural America as 2016, and electric cooperatives are playing a vital role in encouraging voters to engage in issues that matter most to them. We must build on the momentum started two years ago by joining 42 million members of electric cooperatives around the country to remind our elected ofcials that rural issues matter. Electric co-ops are a foundation of their commu nities. Our members can make a difference by sup porting issues like rural infrastructure, farm policy and the need to maintain access to affordable, reliable electricity. The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association will continue the successful Co-ops Vote program, which is a nonpartisan initiative meant to ensure that members are registered to vote and go to the polls. By participating in the Co-ops Vote pro gram in 2018, cooperative members will continue to send a resounding message that all candidates need to put rural Americas concerns front and center.

OCTOBER 31 & NOVEMBER 1, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A Around the Banks Find the good in terrible situations For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9 As human beings, we spend a great deal of our time trying to control things that are beyond our control. That item of control is something most of us struggle with from time to time. In our own feeble way we question, we struggle, we worry, and, most of the time, in the end, all our efforts cannot and will not change one thing that is be yond our control. An old preacher from a simple pulpit in White Springs, Florida, once pro claimed with vigor from the pulpit God is God, and you cant change that. As I visited with many good friends on Sunday afternoon on a picture perfect autumn afternoon, and as laughter freely owed from all who were there, it was hard to believe that in our own state peo ple are still struggling with what, even all business insurance companies often refer to in policies as acts of God. Weather events beyond our control. Yet, in the midst of all the fellowship and joy with my many friends, there were members of the family there from Pana ma City with their tales of the horrors of Michael. There were boxes of needed items going home with one of the ladies. Listening to the singing and the joys of family memories shared, as well as the easy banter of old friends at a picnic table, our conver sation turned to those in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at a place of worship who were senselessly gunned down. One of the ladies who perished age 97, at the Pittsburghs Tree of Life Synagogue survived Hitlers Nazi Death Camps to be gunned down in the United States of America that stood, and still stands against all the tyranny and intolerance es poused by evil despots such as Hitler. Where is this article going? Very sim ply going back to the reference about the mind and ways of God. You can try and gure it out each day of your life until you live to be a hundred, but on that day, you will be no closer to nding answers for the whys of some things than you are right now. There is a reason for that, you are not God and neither am I, and Hes not telling us reasons for His actions, He doesnt have to do that. I will comment on this. As terrible as the tragedies of Hurricane Michael, the Pittsburgh shooting, the shooting last year at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School here in our own state, if you look and you analyze, despite the tragedy, some good comes out of terrible situa tions. In the past several weeks, I have ex perienced this goodness as I have seen individuals give and give some more to those less fortunate in west Florida. I have heard people speak out against hatred or intolerance of any kind in our nation. I believe that rather than caus ing terrible things to happen, and here I go analyzing, and my analysis is poor compared to many others, but I analyze that sometimes God ALLOWS certain things to happen to remind us how help less and weak we are and how much we NEED Him all the time. Now in stating that, we can do the bit we can in all these unfortunate situations, we can RESPECT and LOVE our neigh bors a little more, we can send someone needed supplies who are still struggling. We can ENCOURAGE those closest to these terrible tragedies by letting them know we care, and encouragement is a good thing. Folks seem to spend much of their time and efforts arguing about political issues as if their lives depended on these things. Everyone has the right to speak out, but there are folks in Floridas Panhandle and there are folks in Pittsburgh, Pennsylva nia, and there are folks down in Broward County who said goodbye to their loved one, and it was their last goodbye. In the African American churches in, and around, White Springs, Florida, of my childhood, the congregations would soften sing an old refrain towards the end of the worship service: This may be the last time, This may be the last time, This may be the last time, It may be the last time I dont know. It may be the last time we sing togeth er. It may be the last time I dont know. Indicating the uncertainty of this thing called life, and it is uncertain. So after reading this article, let someone who is special to you KNOW how special they are, and hug them a little tighter when you can and remember the words of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that. I do know two things God is NOT. God is NOT hatred nor intolerance, be cause in His own word he states God is LOVE. From the Eight Mile Still on the Woodpecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laugher. 153981-1 148688-1 LIVE OAK UF/ IFAS Extension will offer a new short course Ac cessing Land for Farming in November.

OCTOBER 31 & NOVEMBER 1, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A Healthy Living You are more than numbers on a scale Probably once a week maybe more, I talk to someone who is upset by the numbers they see when they step on the scale. And I SO get it because I always have the same gut reaction. Generally I want to pitch the scale out back and let the horses trample it. I have a loveHATE relationship with my scale. Stu pid digital numbers anyway. You work so hard to stay on track the majority of the time with your nutrition and exer cise, YET the scale does not seem to reect that hard work. Breaking it down, yes the scale does give you a PART of the picture but you are so much more than that one little number. For the past 12 months or so, every visit I had to the doctor was re ecting my blood pressure higher than it should be. I could not gure out what was going on. My weight although not where I like it had not changed. Noth ing really changed. Or had it? It had. Unknowingly, I was not doing as much aerobic exercise as I had in the past. An increase in cardio exercise during the week brought my blood pressure back in the range it should be and where I like it. Did my weight change? It did not. But the 20 points off my blood pressure are even more important to me than 5 pounds off the scale as there is heart disease in my family. I dont take that on personal ly but I am aware of it and know my blood pressure is a part of my overall health picture so needs to be kept in check. My mother has completely eliminat ed her diabetic medication. Another friend has eliminated her blood pres sure medication. And another friend was able to stay OFF medication. What did we all have in common? We all exercise and stay on track for the most part. Maybe not all the time, but we are on track the MAJORITY of the time. We need to remember to look at the BIG picture and not be so hard on ourselves. Health and wellness is a journey and journeys like hills will have ups and downs. Taking it a step further, CELE BRATE our successes instead of being so darn focused on what we perceive as failure. So the next time you step on the scale and you do not see what you like, think about what you HAVE improved on. Maybe you can walk longer today than you did a month ago. Maybe you are taking a harder tness class now than you did a month ago. Maybe you have changed your nutrition so that you are eating more fruits and vegetables than you did last year. Or you have re placed soda in your diet and now drink more water. ALL SUCCESSES. One step forward today is better than no steps at all. Country Strong Gym will have a Health & Wellness Fair Saturday, Nov. 3, at 10 a.m. There will be speakers talking about nutrition, exercise and more. Free and open to everyone. Have a wonderful week.

Each enve lope contained a single word. The instructor explained that our envelopes contained a Word from God. Our task was to begin seeking God about this word and see what He wants to teach us. My word was thank fulness. I decided this was an easy one: we all have much to be thankful for and I cer tainly know that I could be more thankful for the blessings I enjoy.

This week we nd (thankful ly) that Esther was successful in her attempt to approach the King: When he saw Queen Esther standing in the court, he was pleased with her and held out to her the gold scepter that was in his hand, (Esther 5:2). Now she had to decide how to ask the King to reverse a decree that he had allowed his second in charge to write and seal using his own signet ring! So, she invited the King and Haman to dinner. Can you imagine being invited to dinner as the only guest of the King and Queen? Already on an ego trip from a huge promotion, having all the royal ofcials bow to him and having the authori ty to ll in the blanks on a decree signed by the King, Haman was riding high with this invitation. Haman went out that day happy and in high spirits, (Esther 5:9a). But. How often does that word come along just as everything is going well? But when he (Haman) saw Mordecai at the Kings gate and observed that he nei ther rose nor showed fear in his presence, he was lled with rage against Mordecai. Nevertheless, Haman restrained himself and went home. Calling together his friends and Zeresh, his wife, Haman boasted to them about his vast wealth, his many sons, and all the ways the king had honored him and how he had elevated him above the other nobles and ofcials. And thats not all, Haman added, Im the only person Queen Esther invited to accompany the King to the banquet she gave. And she has invited me along with the King tomorrow, (Esther 5:9b-12). Is Haman counting his blessings in this passage? Nope. Haman is bragging about all of his accomplishments and taking credit for every single promotion, possession and po sition. This passage offers the new insight to thankfulness I was asking for. Thankfulness is not bragging to others about how much better our life is than theirs, or what honors we have received. Thankfulness is about un derstanding how little we deserve the good things that we have been given and giving credit to the One who blesses us anyway. Thankfulness also helps others see the bless ings in their lives as gifts from God too. How can we tell the difference? Haman gives us the key in verse 13 when he says, But all this gives me no satisfaction as long as I see that Jew Mordecai sitting at the kings gate. No matter how great our blessings, bragging gives us no satisfaction if everyone isnt on board with how won derful we are. Thankfulness brings satisfac tion as we understand clearly who we are in comparison to who God is. Anything and everything we have is the result of grace, offered because every heart matters.

You Get What You Give as performed by The New Radicals In the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, dozens of volunteer contractors, laborers and con cerned citizens converge on affected areas in and around Panama City, Florida, each day. They donate money and sup plies, chainsaw trees and pull limbs from homes, haul away debris and carry water and gas to grateful residents. Many of us like to help others when we can. That is why one change in the new tax law may deserve some scrutiny. The new $24,000 standard deduction (for married ling jointly taxpayers) might cause some taxpayers to be less charitable going forward. Lets say you traditionally itemize and you claim $10,000 in home mortgage interest and $5,000 in medical expenses. And lets also presume that you gave $5,000 to your favor ite charities. Thats a total of $20,000 in itemized deductions. As of this year, youre better off taking the standard $24,000 deduction and no longer item izing at all. And this would be true whether you gave $5,000 to charities or not. Speaking pure ly from a taxation perspective, we may see fewer Americans giving to charitable causes, as more taxpayers will simply take the standard deduction. Call it an unintended consequence of the new tax laws. Say youre in a 24 percent tax bracket, are ling jointly and your combined income is between $165,000 and $315,000. And lets just say you had a combined $15,000 in itemized deductions. Your tax able income will not be affected by your charitable contributions unless you donate more than $9,000. Admittedly, tax planning and preparation can be trickier for higher net worth taxpayers and we suggest that readers should always rely on their tax profes sional for personal advice. So while there is some fear that the average American may cut back on charitable contributions, many will still give generously to church coffers and to other charitable causes, even without the tax break. Americans are big-hearted in this regard. But many might be more inclined to give if their taxable income was also lowered by virtue of their charitable contributions. It makes sense for our laws to reward American taxpayers for their altruism. These charitable contributions make for better, safer communities; they support causes that relieve suffering and promote high ideals; they assist churches and schools and other organizations which enhance the quality of life for all of us. Thus, if we can create tax laws that dovetail with the generous spirit harbored by many Ameri cans, well be doing ourselves a service. Margaret R.

OCTOBER 31 & NOVEMBER 1, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 10A The Jasper News tis about not only her hus bands race but the rest of the ballot in Florida, which includes a U.S. Senate seat as well as races for attorney general and chief nancial ofcer in addition to the District 10 seat in the Flori da House of Representatives for Hamilton County voters and the U.S. Representative race for District 5. Hamilton County also has one local race in the Hamilton County Board of County Commis sioners District 2 seat. The candidates are Democrat Sandy Hurst and Republican Josh Smith, the incumbent. Early voting continues in Hamilton County through Saturday at the Supervisor of Elections ofce from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily during the early voting peri od. Election Day is Tuesday with polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Great area, great people and need everybody to get out there and vote for the future of Florida, DeSantis added. Mike McCalister, a re tired colonel in the U.S. Army as well as a national spokesperson for Citizens for Trump, also urged those at the rally to make sure and cast a ballot. We have a big election coming up, McCalister said during an enthusiastic speech touting many of Donald Trumps successes during his presidency. We are in a serious ght. Casey DeSantis said those votes will help ensure Floridas future by taking the differing paths offered by her husband, a former U.S. Representative from the Sixth District, and Gil lum, the mayor of Tallahas see, on a variety of topics, notably the economy as well as education. The DeSantis campaigns plan for the economy is to continue to build on the growth experienced during Rick Scotts tenure by keeping taxes low. Casey DeSantis cited the James Madison Institutes recent summary that expressed concern with the proposed corporate tax increase that is part of Gillums economic plan. The James Madison Institutes sum mary states that the tax increase would lead to businesses leaving the state and thousands of jobs lost. This was a non-partisan study that looked at the plan and said, We cant make ends meet, Casey DeSantis said. She also pointed to dif ferences in the two candi dates vision for education in the state. DeSantis plan includes expanding the voucher program in place that provides private school scholarships for low-income, disabled or bullied students. Gillum, who wants to provide ad ditional education funding with the corporate tax increase, on the other hand wants to put an end to the voucher system as well as charter schools. Ron is a guy who be lieves that parents have the right to choose what education they want for their children, she said, as she held their son Mason in her arms throughout her speech while Madison, their soon-to-be 2-year-old daughter Madison spent part of it busy playing with microphones behind her on the platform. Casey DeSantis added that more than 50 sher iffs across the state have pledged their support to her husbands campaign. He loves this country and he really is the embod iment, in my opinion, of the American dream, she said recalling him working his way through Yale and Harvard before joining the military and then seeking public ofce. Hes a man of integrity, of principle, of morals, or character, which is really important in this race. And hes a guy whos doing it not because he wants to be someone. Hes not looking for the resume, hes not looking for the title, hes not looking for any of that. He wants to do great things for this state. He wants to protect Floridas future go ing forward. Continued From Page 1A Casey dialysis treatments. Other doctor appointments are also among the trips SVTA buses make. Theres a daily trip to Gainesville to the VA Hos pital and UF Health Shands Hospital. It also has a college route, or a Commuter As sistance Program, where it takes Suwannee County students to Florida Gate way College in Lake City and back, or students from Columbia High School to FGC or Hamilton County students from Jasper to RIVEROAK Technical College in Live Oak. Those routes have been the source of increased use of the services SVTA pro vides, Sessions said. He said in 2015, there were just shy of 2,400 riders on the transit author itys vehicles. By late 2017, that num ber had increased to nearly 5,300. And that improvement came without a budget increase. Were not getting any more money but we basi cally doubled the ridership for the same amount of money, Sessions said. Saving money and im proving efciency were Sessions priorities when he took over the transit authority. He said a daily focus on reducing miles, and there fore fuel cost, has been the main reason for the turn around. Thats how you save money is you just dont spend it, he said, adding his day begins with a visit to dispatch and devising a game plan for that days trip to Gainesville in order to make sure unnecessary miles arent racked up. Thats how you get into the black. Its just an efciency thing. Its just paying at tention to the nickels. Assistance from the CTD when needed helps too. Sessions said recently SVTA had a young man with a mental handicap needed help with transpor tation to a prospective new job. And the potential trip wont be a short one either. So Sessions reached out to John Irvine with the CTD, who said hed try to nd some additional fund ing to help provide for the trip. People are disadvan taged and thats what we are, Sessions said. Thats what we do.

OCTOBER 31 & NOVEMBER 1, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 11A 165298-1 165300-1 NOTICE OF 2nd CERTIFICATION OF FINAL TAX ROLLS rfntb ntbbf b rbf bf NEW YORK The nomination of Jay Prince, vice president of Prince Automo tive of Valdosta Inc., a Buick, Chevrolet and GMC dealership in Valdosta, for the 2019 Time Dealer of the Year award was announced last week by Time. Prince is one of a select group of 51 dealer nominees from across the country who will be honored at the 102nd annual National Automobile Dealers Association Show in San Francisco on Jan. 25, 2019. The announcement of this years 50th an nual award was made by Jorg Stratmann, publisher of Time, and Doug Timmerman, president of Auto Finance for Ally Finan cial. The Time Dealer of the Year award is one of the automobile industrys most prestigious and highly coveted honors. Re cipients are among the nations most suc cessful auto dealers who also demonstrate a long-standing commitment to commu nity service. Prince, 47, was chosen to represent the Georgia Automobile Dealers Association in the national competition one of only 51 auto dealers nominated for the 50th annual award from more than 16,000 nationwide. Having been a dealer for 21 years and part of a larger dealer group that has served South Georgia since 1966, we have always understood the importance of taking care of our customers and employ ees, Prince said in a release. We have achieved a lot over the past two decades, and I am very proud of assembling the best team in the industry. A 1989 graduate of Tift County High School in Tifton, Georgia, Prince earned a B.B.A. in accounting from the University of Georgia in Athens, where he graduat ed in 1993 and was a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, serving as the groups treasurer for two years. While Prince is a third-generation deal er, he chose a different path and worked in accounting rms in Atlanta after college and became a CPA (certied public ac countant) in 1996. The following year, his father, John B. Prince III, had the opportu nity to add a Chevrolet-Mazda dealership in Valdosta to his Prince Automotive Group and asked his son to be general manager. I understood that I was given the ti tle simply because of my last name as I didnt really have the necessary automo tive experience at that time, he said. I wanted to earn the respect of my fellow workers so I worked tirelessly and I do mean tirelessly to make my dealership successful. Prince capitalized on his nance train ing, hired strong and experienced team members to balance his shortcomings and completed additional management training through the NADA to overcome challeng es. Since that time, he has acquired own ership in Prince Automotive of Valdosta, as well as ve other stores in the Prince Automotive Group, which are located in Albany, Douglas and Tifton, Georgia. As an active member of the Georgia Automobile Dealers Association, Prince has held several leadership positions, in cluding chairman of the board from 2017 to 2018. He has seen, rsthand, how the group lobbies for the greater good of all Georgia dealers on the state and national level. I believe GADA is one of the strongest state associations in the country and I am proud to have played a role in it over the past 20 years, he added in the release. In the area of community service, Prince has had a long and productive af liation with the Greater Valdosta United Way, having served on the groups board Valdostas Prince nominated for Time Dealer of the Year for many years. My work with the local United Way resulted in successfully raising $1.25 mil lion when I was campaign chair in 2005; expanding the groups reach into four additional counties; and bringing new car dealers of Valdosta together to donate a portion of their proceeds from the sale of new vehicles, he said. He has also participated in the United Ways Day of Caring, completing handson projects for local charities. As a board member for the Valdos ta-Lowndes County Chamber of Com merce, Prince chaired the Think B.I.G. campaign, which encouraged area busi nesses and individuals to spend money locally instead of out of town. He also supports Lowndes Associated Ministries to People (nonprot focused on ending homelessness and poverty in Lowndes County); Marie Gaskins Prince Scholar ship (for agricultural and environmental science students created to honor Princes grandmother, who was a farmer); Mira cle League of Valdosta (donated to build rubberized baseball eld for handicapped children and adults); Childrens Advocacy Center of Lowndes County (donates holi day gifts to needy children through event hosted by his daughter); and local Chevy Youth Baseball and Chevy Youth Soccer clinics. While Prince and his familys auto group have received numerous awards for their community work, the recognition that stands out most comes from his fa ther. My most meaningful achievement would be the respect that I have gained from my mentor, my father, as an astute business person and for his praise that I have done a great job, he said. While humble, I am proud to be a car dealer and proud to be in this business. Dealers are nominated by the executives of state and metro dealer associations around the country. The award is spon sored by Time in association with Ally Financial, and in cooperation with NADA. A panel of faculty members from the Tauber Institute for Global Operations at the University of Michigan will select one nalist from each of the four NADA re gions and one national Dealer of the Year. Three nalists will receive an additional $5,000 for their favorite charities and the winner will receive an additional $10,000 to give to charity. In its eighth year as exclusive sponsor, Ally will recognize dealer nominees and their community efforts by contributing $1,000 to each nominees 501(c)3 charity of choice. Nominees will also be recognized on AllyDealerHeroes.com, which high lights the philanthropic contributions and achievements of Time Dealer of the Year nominees. Its an incredible honor to recognize these dealers for their business accom plishments and their unwavering commit ment to Do It Right by helping others in their communities, Timmerman said. They are extraordinary auto leaders who care and go the extra mile to give of them selves to make their communities stron ger. Ally is proud to support and celebrate their achievements. Prince was nominated for the TIME Dealer of the Year award by Lea Kirschner, president and CEO of the Georgia Automobile Dealers Association. He has one daughter named Milly.

Bands from around the world and across the mu sical spectrum descended on North Florida and brought fans from all parts of the globe into Suwannee County. In its sixth year, Suwan nee Hulaween featured eclectic rock, world blue grass-based acts, electronic artists like Odesza, and European artists Jamiro quai and Tipper from Oct. 24 through Sunday. The lineup also included soul ful stars Janelle Monae and The Revivalists, along with jazz acts Medeski, Martin & Wood, and Galactic. In addition, Hulaween gave several Florida and Southern Georgia-based acts the opportunity to shine in front of one of the most wide-ranging audi ences anywhere. Miamis Roosevelt Collier, Melody Trucks, The Apple Butter Express, and others were featured along with festival headliners. During Hulaween, Su wannee County stores, hotels, restaurants, gas Hulaween brings international artists, huge economic impact to North Florida stations and other retail ers saw a huge increase in business as thousands converged on the county to purchase supplies and participate in one of the most revered Halloween music festivals in the Unit ed States and indeed, the world. Suwannee Hulaween has a profound nancial im pact on the local economy with the festival bringing thousands of concert goers in for a weekend. This inux of visitors packs a powerful nancial punch felt by not only large de partment stores but mom and pop businesses as well. Suwannee Hulaween also creates thousands of temporary jobs and brings millions of dollars into the local economy. An economic impact article in 2015 following the third Suwannee Hulaween estimated the economic impact at more than $10 million. Three years later it has likely quadrupled, according to some esti mates. Restaurants, hotel man agers, and convenience stores prepare for Hu laween months before hand, hiring part-time employees, stocking their stores and extending busi ness hours. At the Music Park, tem porary employees include a large number of security staff, those who direct traf c, provide re and emer gency care, gate guards, escorts with golf carts to get attendees where they need to be, whether they are healthy or hand icapped, and many other temporary positions. Hulaween also partic ipates in several charity initiatives as well as giving local nonprots numerous fund raising and volun teer opportunities. These organizations volunteer their time at Hulaween in exchange for a fee paid to the club. The local clubs then use that money to provide community needs such as scholarships and special projects. Each year at Suwannee Hulaween, Conscious Alliance (CA) volunteers set up a booth and provide a large commemorative festival poster in exchange for canned goods and nonperishable food items donated on the last day of the festival to Suwannee Countys Love INC. The poster artist donates the drawing and CA handles the printing. rfntbnnnbf ntf nfbnnnr f

Kemp, 54, boasts that he is politically incorrect, which is the politically correct thing for Repub licans to say. Throwing caution to the wind, he has announced, I say Merry Christmas. In one prima ry ad he brandished a shot gun that he says no ones taking away (who wants to conscate shotguns ?). Later in the ad, his prop was a Ford pickup for use in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take them home myself. In an other ad he pointed a shot gun at a teenage boy in terested in one of Kemps daughters. He wants you to know he is tough as nails, although most who actually are feel no need for such public display. As secretary of state, Kemp is the umpire of elections under Georgias exact match law, which can block a voters regis tration if even a missing initial differs from the per sons other public records. Some Republicans make a mountain out of not even a molehill of evidence of voter fraud: Orchestrating fraud on a scale neces sary to turn most elections would be a hugely inef cient investment of time and energy. Some Dem ocrats are comparably overheated about voter suppression, which they detect in every measure aimed at election integri ty. But because substan tial voter fraud is a c tion, measures like exact match do seem designed to sow confusion in or der to discourage voters. It has delayed the registra tion of more than 50,000 disproportionately Af rican-Americans who, with proper identica tion, can still vote Nov. 6.

It has the second-lowest percentage of whites east of the Mississippi (after Maryland).

For example, women born in 1941 can expect to live four years longer than women who were born in 1921. But this greater life expectancy also means increased caregiving responsibilities, often in the form of long-term care. This greater need for long-term care often puts extra pressure on families, par ticularly women who are traditionally the primary caregivers. Long-term caregiving involves two primary areas, instrumental activities and personal care. Instrumental activities generally include preparing meals, doing housework and yard work, and providing transportation, while personal care typically involves bathing, dressing and feeding. Those who care for people with long-term health problems or physical limitations are often required to handle various other tasks according to the specic situation. For example, an elderly person will have very different needs from those of a disabled child or a terminally ill adult. For those who do not have family members to help out, there are community long-term care programs that can provide health and support services workers who can visit patients in their homes. These programs can help disabled people live independently at home or provide care for those who must live in long-term care centres. There are also agencies across the country that can provide services ranging from personal care to in-home professional health services. These services greatly improve the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of people each year.Caring about the long-term Resources that meet the needsWhether it is a parent, aunt or friend, those who require long-term care deserve to receive the best possible treatment. They should also be able to receive this care in an appropriate and healthy environment. The elderly may slow down as the years go by and lose some of their independence, but they still play important roles in their families and communities. Requiring long-term care doesnt mean they should be locked up and hidden from the rest of the world. Nor should those who dedicate their working lives caring for these patients be taken for granted. There are many resources available for those who require long-term care, regardless of their age, where they live or their state of health. Those concerned about loved ones who are no longer able to properly care for themselves should ensure that they receive appropriate care. Long-term care includes a wealth of services such as physical, social and emotional support designed to help patients retain their independence for as long as possible. Home services are also available. If you are researching long-term care for yourself or someone you love, take the time to nd the right service. Society is nally starting to recognize the importance of long-term care. By supporting these resources, we can ensure that those who need them can continue to contribute to society and live with dignity.

McClain, a Hamilton County High graduate and senior at BU, was recently named to the 201819 preseason All-Ohio Valley Conference mens basketball team. Hes coming off his best sea son with the Bruins. McClain averaged 12.6 points per game, 3.8 rebounds and one steal as a junior. He had the best game of his career in the 2017-18 season, scoring 27 points against Hous ton Baptist in a contest where he also set a career-high with six 3-pointers. I felt honored, McClain said of the preseason recognition. Personal accolades are good, but I want to get the (OVC) champi onship and make it to the NCAA Tournament. Belmont has made the NCAA Tournament seven times since 2006, but McClain hasnt been to the Big Dance yet. He has ad vanced to the NIT Tournament twice with the Bruins. This could be the year as Bel mont was recently tabbed as the preseason favorite to win the conference by OVC mens bas ketball coaches and communica tions directors. Making the transition A position change was a major factor in McClains breakout ju nior season. After playing mostly as a back up point guard during his rst two collegiate seasons, McClain moved to shooting guard. He plays with so much more freedom as a wing, said legend Hornets rout Tigers on Pearsons birthday jamie.wachter@ganews.com MAYO The Lafayette Hornets celebrated head coach Joey Pearsons birthday in style Friday night. After eight straight losses to Trenton, the Hornets delivered Pearson a nice present by rout ing their nemesis 56-6 at Dale Walker Field. This was one we needed, Pearson said after the blowout and after the LHS band sere naded him with Happy Birth day following the game. Its been a long time com ing. Lafayette (7-3) wasted little time in making sure it was in deed a happy birthday. After stufng Trenton (1-8) on fourth-and-short to take over at the Tigers 34, the Hor nets needed just four plays to go up 7-0.

The Florida High School Athletic Association (FH SAA) voted Monday in favor of a new classication structure for baseball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, softball and girls volleyball. Starting in the 2019-20 school year, teams will not be required to play district games in the regular season. There will still be a district tournament at the end of the season, but only the district champion will ad vance to the playoffs. Under the current system in place, district champi ons and district runner-ups advance to the state play offs. Starting next fall, MaxPreps.com rankings will de termine the at-large bids to the playoffs who will join district champions. Locally, only Suwannee High will be affected. Class 1A rural schools Branford, Lafayette and Ham ilton County are keeping the current playoff structure of one district champion and one runner-up advancing. What it means for Suwannee than an hour to play regular season district games on school nights. The Bulldogs wont be forced to play powerhouse city basketball teams in Tallahassee or soccer forces in Jack sonville. teams during the regular season. And for the SHS base ball and softball teams, there have been some very enter taining district games in previous years. Suwannee loses big to Madison County michael.jones@ganews.com LIVE OAK Suwannee was going to need a near performance to hang with Madison County on Friday. That didnt happen for the Bulldogs on their homecoming night. The Cowboys (8-1) hit some big plays on offense and capitalized on a number of Suwannee mistakes to defeat the Bulldogs 50-12 at Paul Langford Stadium. Madison is a great team, but we didnt show up, said Suwannee coach Kyler Hall. We got outcoached, we got out played. That was an old fashioned butt whipping. The pressure games, the games of sig nicance we have not played well. Suwannee had two early fumbles and al lowed Madison County to recover a pooch kick on the opening kickoff. Giving a po tent Cowboys offense extra possessions led to a disastrous start as SHS fell behind 23-0 in the rst quarter. MCHS used big plays Travis Jay threw a 58-yard touchdown pass and also ran for a 52-yard score while Vinsota Allen had an 81-yard touchdown run to take a commanding rst-half lead. rtrbrrtt brnn rrfrrn nbbnnrfnbtnrnrftnttrrn tbrrb nrntrr

His natural position is a wing. Hes such a natural there. While team personnel dictated that McClain came off the bench at the point guard position in his rst two years, the easy-going kid from Jen nings handled it in stride. Byrd credited McClain for having a great attitude. Hes such a nice person, so easy to be around, Byrd said. Im pretty hard, demanding on point guards. But Kevin never did anything but say yes sir, no sir. He handled that in such a mature way. I admire that. Ive coached for a long time and I know Im not supposed to have favorites. But hes one of the best young men weve had. The 6-foot-3 McClain, who starred at Hamilton County as a shooting guard and was the first Trojan to sign a Division 1 basketball scholarship, spoke about making the transition back to his nat ural position. The position change helped a lot, McClain said. On the wing, Im more decisive. Im more of catch and shoot guy. A great fit Although it took some time for McClain to crack the starting lineup, he never regrets choosing Belmont University. In fact, he called it one of his best decisions. Its been a good fit academically and athlet ically. One of the greatest decisions of my life, bas ketball-wise and schoolwise, said McClain, a Design Communications major at the private Christian university in Nashville, Tennessee. Its a city, but its slow-paced, easy to get around. I love it here. Future McClain will be a player to watch this season as one of the top players at a very successful mid-major pro gram. Extending his career be yond college is a possibility for McClain. I want to keep playing as long as I can, McClain said about his professional prospects. If not, I want to go further in my major of design communications. Continued From Page 1B McClain the junior threw for ve touchdowns and ran for two more with an 8-yard rushing TD with 9:39 left in the rst. Beach, who completed 13 of 16 passes for 195 yards, then hit Ben Massey for a 47-yard touchdown on the Hornets next drive to ex tend the lead to 14-0 late in the rst. Massey intercepted a Trenton pass in the end zone to set up the Hornets drive. Jaxson did a great job being efcient throwing the ball and really spreading the eld, Pearson said. If we can get our offense like that where everybody is in volved, its hard to stop us. Offensively, we had a great week of practice and I thought we executed just like we practiced. Its ex citing. The Tigers turnover woes continued in the sec ond quarter. Trenton fumbled on their next drive, one play after Wyatt Lovelace darted 15 yards on a fake punt on fourth-and-12. After Richy James hauled in a Beach touch down pass, the Tigers fumbled on the ensuing kickoff which James recov ered. Massey then caught a 26-yard touchdown pass for the second score in less than a minute to push the advantage to 28-0. I thought defensively we played with a lot of intensity and played really disciplined and took away what they do, Pearson added as LHS held Trenton to 129 yards of offense. And every time we did something (forcing three turnovers and two turn overs on downs), we took advantage. Beach, who completed passes to ve different receivers, hit Adam Perry on a 26-yard score and then Massey again from 20 yards out as LHS led 42-0 at halftime. Massey had three touchdowns and 109 yards on ve receptions. Beach, who has thrown for 2,024 yards and rushed for another 1,019 on the season, scored again in the third on a 25-yard run during which he ran over a Trenton defender at the 10. After Trenton scored on a 20-yard Jordan Fulmer run in the fourth, the Hornets answered with a 1-yard Garris Edwards run in the nal minute. Continued From Page 1B Pearson When SHS did hold on to the football, the offense moved well. The Bulldogs rushed for just fewer than 200 yards as a team and had two long scoring drives, both in the second quarter. Carlton Hall nished with 97 yards on 12 carries, which included a 32-yard burst for a touchdown. Tyree Taylor completed 5 of 9 passes for 49 yards and Jaquez Moore ran for 46 yards and a score. But the game was never close after all the early mis takes. Suwannee (5-4) is still hoping for a playoff berth as a wild card. The Bulldogs will need a win next week and a lot of help from other teams to snap their two-year play off drought. I dont know what the point system looks like I think we still got a (playoff) shot if we beat Taylor Coun ty, said Kyler Hall. But weve got a lot of things to correct before next Friday.

Notes: Both programs have had their share of success in recent history, but are going through a difficult season. Hamilton County is 1-7, but has not been eliminated from playoff contention. The 1-8 Tigers are led by sophomore fullback Jordan Fulmer. STATISTICALLY SPEAKING A look at the statistical leaders across the Suwannee Valley in passing, rushing and receiving (based on yardage) through the first 10 weeks of the 2018 season. PLAYERS OF THE WEEK CARLTON HALL RB | SUWANNEE GARRIS EDWARDS RB | LAFAYETTE BEN MASSEY WR | LAFAYETTE JEVIN JOHNSON LB | BRANFORD Jamie Wachter Lafayette High is already locked into a playoff berth. L IVE OAK Now in the final week of regular season, the playoff picture is starting to look a little clearer for Suwannee, Hamilton County, Branford and Lafayette. The Hornets are the only lock for the postseason as of now. The Bulldogs, Buccaneers and Trojans are still in the running though, but they will need a lot of help. For Suwannee, its going to take a win against Taylor County followed by a lot of scoreboard watching to see if all the pieces line up. Branford and Hamilton County will need even bigger miracles. A closer look at what each team needs: SUWANNEE (5-4, 3-1 DISTRICT) 36.2 Suwannee hosts Taylor County on Friday. SHS needs a win in that game and a lot of outside help to snap a two-year playoff drought. The Bulldogs will be rooting hard for teams they have faced this season as opponents record will play a big factor in deciding their playoff fate. If Chiles, Stanton Prep and Fort White win their final games which is a good possibility those teams would all move up one category. That would be a huge boost in points for Suwannee and help in earning a wild card playoff spot. If SHS won on Friday and all three of those teams won also, SHS could move up to a 38.4 average. Suwannee could even jump as high to 38.9 if Ribault upsets Raines, which would move the Trojans move up a category. So many things have to fall in place for Lafayette earns second straight playoff berth Ran for 97 yards and a touchdown in Suwannees loss to Madison County. Hauled in three touchdown passes for the Hornets and finished with 109 yards receiving. Was a workhorse with 46 carries and 237 yards in Branfords loss to PK Yonge. Helped Lafayette end its losing skid to Trenton with 137 yards rushing and a touchdown. Series: Suwannee leads 27-22 since 1959. Last meeting: Taylor County won 52-14 last season. Notes: Suwannee (5-4) is in a mustwin situation to have a chance at the playoffs. SHS needs to defeat Taylor County and then get some help from other teams TCHS struggled early in the season against some good competition, but has won its last four games to improve to 5-4.

SHS needs West Florida to win that district and then the Bulldogs would have a better shot at passing Mosley in points for the final wild card spot. Four district champions and four wild card teams advance to the playoffs in Class 5A-8A. Trinity Christian, Godby and Ribault have already clinched district titles. Wakulla, Bolles and Ponte Vedra are looking strong in the wild card positions. LAFAYETTE (7-3) 37.11 The Hornets finished the regular season 7-3 on the field, but 6-3 officially because their win against Central Florida Christian did not count toward the standings. LHS looks to be set at the No. 4 seed and destined for a first-round matchup with No. 5 Union County on Nov. 9. The Hornets will have an extra week of preparation as they have a bye this Friday. Madison County is the top team in Region 3-Class 1A followed by Chiefland and Dixie County. HAMILTON CO. (1-7) 33.13 Strength of schedule has helped Hamilton County remain in the playoff hunt most of the year. But even with a win against Trenton on Friday, the Trojans wont be heading to the postseason unless Branford and Bell both lose. BRANFORD (5-4) 33.67 The Buccaneers are likely to win Fridays game and finish with an average of 34.3 points. The problem is Bell is also likely to win Friday and finish in the sixth and final playoff spot with 34.4 points. Mike Jones | michael.jones@gaflnews.com HIGH SCHOOL 2018 FOOTBALL GLANCE BRANFORD AT CORNERSTONE Series: First Meeting. Notes: The Buccaneers, coming off a close loss to PK Yonge, need to win to stay alive mathematically for the playoffs. A win would also give Branford (5-4) its first winning season since 2010. Cornerstone Charter (3-6) has lost two straight. 7:30 P.M. JASPER Bradford used a big sec ond quarter to turn a close affair with host Hamilton County into a rout Fri day night at Veterans Field. The Tornadoes scored three touch downs in the second quarter, including a pair of scoring passes from Adrien Ciena to Austin Lovell, and rolled past the Trojans 41-0. Bradford (5-4) led just 6-0 after the first quarter getting a 28-yard touchdown run from Jeremiah Vaughn to cap a eight-play opening drive. But the Tornadoes needed just one play to extend the lead to two scores in the second quarter as Vaughn broke loose from 53 yards out. He finished with 105 yards on just six carries, as Bradford rushed for 267 yards on 36 carries as a team. Ciena then hit Lovell for a 24-yard score on the next BHS drive before a DeNandre Johnson interception late in the half was turned into more points and a 27-0 halftime lead when Ciena and Lovell connected from 29 yards out. Bradford scored on both of its third quarter drives to make it 41-0. The Trojans, who fell to 1-7, were held to 94 yards of offense and turned the ball over four times.

But even with 237 yards rushing and two touchdowns from McQuay, the Bucs fell just short, losing 28-20 against the Blue Wave. Hamm added 25 yards rushing and a touchdown for Branford (5-4). Really proud of how tough we played, said Buc caneers coach Tim Clark. We knew they were one of the best teams in our area and for us to have a shot wed need to run the ball, eat the clock and keep it away from their explosive offense. Our boys spilled every thing they had, and I truly feel like they got our best shot. We just came up a lit tle short. Jevin Johnson led the way defensively with 12 tackles, one for a loss. Branford held a good PK Yonge (8-1) team to 209 yards of offense, but the Blue Wave jumped out early and held onto the lead.

OCTOBER 31 & NOVEMBER 1, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9B State & Region Seeking Halloween haunts in Georgia, North Florida The SunLight Project HAHIRA, Ga. Two years ago, Philip Hitchner went before the Hahira Histor ical Society with an interesting business proposal. The historical society occupies the front of what is left of the former Smith Hospital on Lawson Street. The small museum also serves as an election poll ing location for Hahira. At the societys regular monthly meet ing, Hitchner asked if he and his team from Cross The Line Paranormal could investigate the back portion of the re maining hospital to nd evidence of the paranormal and create a paranormal in vestigation tour. Its almost a given. Almost all hospi tals are haunted, Hitchner said. They kinda didnt know what to do but after it was all said and done, we gave them about a $700 check so they were all ne with it. One of the earlier experiences the team had in the hospital came with some veri cation. Investigating in one of the bathrooms with a voice recorder, they asked, Is anyone in this room with us? We got a clear as day Roland, Hitchner said. Later, while looking through the muse um in the front of the building, the team came across some death certicates. The rst name that we found was Ro land. While conrmation is preferred for the sharing of stories, personal experiences are the ones that stick with investigators. When Hitchner was about 15, he walked into his room after school and saw his grandfather sitting on his bed. Hitchners grandfather, however, had recently passed away from cancer in that room. I could see every outline of him and knew exactly who it was, he said. After that experience, Hitchner has continued to wonder what happens to us when we pass away. Living in the Bible belt, Hitchner often hears that the after life comes down to heaven or hell. That doesnt mean that there isnt some energy or an echo of that persons being still here, he said. Every town has its share of ghost sto ries. The SunLight Project coverage area Valdosta, Thomasville, Tifton, Dalton, Moultrie, Milledgeville, Ga., and Live Oak, Fla. is no different. For this Halloween, the SunLight Team plunged into the spooky and unexplained with paranormal investigators, haunted houses and local Halloween events. Local Haunts Since its creation in 2010, CLP has investigated the old Smith Hospital nu merous times. The remaining portion of the Hahira hospital has features that showcase its age. While the front of the building is air conditioned, carpeted and used regularly by the historical society, the back portion has the uninviting feeling of an aban doned hospital. The lack of any air ow leaves the rooms stuffy and hot, even in late Octo ber. A musty, unpleasant smell envelops visitors and is especially potent in some corners. The beds that have been placed throughout were retrieved from the land ll by the CLP paranormal investigators after the historical society cleared them out for space. During the Hahira Nights tours, CLP uses a wide range of equipment to give ghost seekers the full experience. They have a DVR security system with night vision cameras set up throughout the building, K2 meters that read electro magnetic elds, a light grid that makes moving shadows easier to see in dark hallways, thermal imaging cameras and voice recorders. An REM pod is built specically for the paranormal eld to try to communi cate with spirits that may be around. The experimental device creates its own eld that, when a person or spirit gets close to it, lights up and makes a loud noise to indicate something is near. Another tool they use is called a spirit box. The box works by running through ra dio channels, producing white noise that spirits can manipulate to speak through and respond to questions. The antenna is removed to cut down on actual radio interference. While attempting to reach out to a His panic male spirit during an investigation on Friday, Oct. 19, The Valdosta Daily Times employee Sarah Warrender said, Hola, donde estas? or Hello, where are you? A quick Hola, or Hello, in re sponse was heard through the box. Later, Cummings asked, How many people are in this room? While there were two investigators from CLP and two VDT employees shad owing the investigation, the response that was heard was seven, the same number of spirits the paranormal team has heard during their many investigations of the old hospital. A few more responses were heard throughout the night, but the spirits were otherwise relatively quiet. But thats just the way it goes sometimes with investi gations. We call it paranormal shing. Its not paranormal catching, Hitchner said. Suwannee County, Fla., historian Eric 26 of the same year. It is said her ghost roams the old McIn tosh house. Lura Irvines ghost isnt the only ghost wandering old halls. Along with having suboor secret passages, missing evidence in a murder case, knocks on doors, doors that close for no reason and unexplained sounds, Thomasville City Hall, constructed in the 1930s, has a ghost who goes by the name of Reginald. Thomasville Police Department was housed in the building for many years with a jail out back. A bicycle that was evidence in a mur der case disappeared from the basement. Maybe Reginald rides it around the auditorium when were not here, said Sherri Nix, city marketing department project manger, whose ofce is at city hall. The basement has secret passages. A hatch in the oor of the reception room opens to the basement. Nix found the back hall door, which has a dead-bolt lock, to the basement open one day. A staircase that begins at the door winds back and forth down to the incinerator. We have never gured out how that door got unlocked who or what may have opened it, Nix said. Nix hears things in the auditorium on the second oor of the building. It sounds like a ghost to me, she said. Felicia Brannen, city clerk at the mu nicipal building on Victoria Place, previ ously worked in the Main Street ofce at city hall and managed the auditorium. She was walking across the stage one day with stage lights on. The audito rium seating area was dark. Suddenly, she heard something that sounded like someone putting their hands in a bag of chips. She stopped and listened, then be gan walking across the stage again. The sound returned. To this day, I dont know what I heard, Brannen said. He (Reginald) would make things happen unexpectedly to the point you would ask, What was that? Sheryl Sealys communications ofce is directly across the hall from the door leading to the basement. She sometimes hears someone knock on her ofce door, but no one is there when she responds. Doors in her ofce also close without explanation. Blame it all on Reginald, who is seen more as a Slimer than a Zuul from Ghostbusters. So far, hes been a friendly ghost who rffntbnbfbff b rfn ffbbbfbf fnbbfbbb ttb rnbfbbfffff bfbfnfbfn ttb rnbfbb fbrfbf ffbb bfbnffbf n Musgrove was contacted several years ago by professional ghost hunters inter ested in investigating the old McIntosh House in Luraville, Fla. The house, which sits at the corner of State Road 51 and Luraville Road, is said to be haunted by Lura Irvine, who the town was named after. Irvine was born in October 1873, the daughter of Washington Lafayette Irvine, who established Luraville around 1878 along with a ferry just downriver from the current Hal Adams Bridge on High way 51 and named it after his daughter. He also ran other businesses, includ ing a steam sawmill, grist mill, ginning establishments and a post ofce. Luras parents died while she was still young and she was cared for by Dr. Perry McIn tosh, a cousin on her fathers side and uncle by marriage on her mothers side, who were the famous Iveys of the Bran ford area. Unfortunately, Lura was horribly burned in a girls dormitory re in 1888. According to one source, she stepped on a lit match in the school dormitory and her dress caught re. She was brought back to Luraville and cared for by Dr. McIntosh, but died of her injuries Dec. enjoys playing tricks, she said. It is believed Reginald moved the evi dence bicycle from the basement. We just havent found it yet, Nix said. More lonely than Thomasville City Hall is the Thomas A. Berry House, which stands stately and proud on Dal tons East Hawthorne Street. Built in 1882, by the Rev. David P. Bass as a wedding present for his daugh ter, Mary Elizabeth, and her husband, Thomas A. Berry, the house is one of the few remaining late Victorian-style homes remaining in what was once an afuent section of the city. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. The family sold the home in 1945. It once served as a care facility for the elderly and now houses the Carter Hope Center, an agency that provides resi dential and outpatient substance abuse treatment. It may also host a ghost or two. The Georgia Ghost Society (which investigates paranormal activity) received a letter back in 2007 saying there was a lot of odd things going on there, said Connie Hall-Scott, author of Haunted Dalton. Those odd things include hearing footsteps and feeling that someone was SEE BUMPS, PAGE 10B

She went along with the investigators and one resi dent said hed seen ghosts there. He said he saw a little girl on the front porch, Hall-Scott said. Several people who have lived there over the years say they have seen the little girl with an estimated age of 8 or 9. Others report seeing an old man. She said ghost hunters using electronic recording devices that catch sounds that cant be heard by the human ear claim to have captured sounds they believe are a little girl singing. Who you gonna call? Paranormal investigators have found their eld be ing more accepted with the prevalence of shows such as Ghost Adventures and Ghost Hunters. The CLP team has found that these shows can also confuse the public about what is really hap pening behind some poten tially haunted doors. One of the main complaints Hitchner and Cummings have concerns the validity of orbs as paranormal ev idence. Theyve blown that up so much that people think every orb is a ghost, Cummings said. After being called out to a store to investigate some security footage, Hitchner was quickly able to dispel the claims. One of them was a moth or bug, he said. It ew right to the camera. Clients may be relieved to hear their ghosts are de bunked, but others may be offended. Some people might get mad, but were prob ably never going to be on TV, he said. Theres no reason to lie to you. It gets some people scared and were just going to go about our day. Another misconception is every experience is neg ative or demonic. Cummings has only ex perienced one attack in his years of investigating. While walking through the old jail in Jennings, Fla., he felt what he thought was a bug bite or sting at rst that then spread across his back. He re alized the next morning there were two marks. Even being touched, he wasnt convinced it was anything malicious. My wife thought that it wasnt so much as an attack as it was someone just reaching out and trying to grab me while I kept walking, Cummings said. Jails and hospitals in the regional area arent the only places Cross The Line has investigated. It has visited national haunt ed hot spots often featured on paranormal shows such as Waverly Hills Sana torium in Kentucky, St. Albans Sanatorium in Vir ginia and the Sorrel-Weed House in Savannah. Locally, the group has investigated the Bell House, formerly Vitos Pizzeria, in Valdosta and a few businesses that would prefer to keep their haunt ings quiet. Cross The Line also does home investigations. The team will enter a home and do an initial sweep walkthrough to ensure there are not natu ral forces at play. One of the theories is high EMFs from your appliances will cause headaches, will cause you to feel paranoia, James Cummings, a CLP team member, said. During the Halloween season, the CLP sees an increase in paranormal claims that are usually written off as hyped-up stories among friends. Sometimes the claims seem more credible due to the amount of fear the people involved have about spending time in their own homes. Most clients dont ask much more than validation they arent crazy. A recent investigation in a home in Valdosta led Hitchner and Cummings to evidence of a young girls spirit. She wanted attention. She wanted a friend. She was alone and 3 to 5 years old, Cummings said. The revelation of this information to the tenants of the home relieved their fear and made them more sympathetic to the inci dents they experienced in the home. We dont know why theyre still here but some times you just have to think of them as a person without a body.
