The program, which will be gin in November, aims to help feed local children who may not have access to food over the weekends. We know that our students represent our talent pipeline and future workforce, said Susan Ramsey, executive director of the HCDA. We hope that by having the HCDA sponsoring 100 weekend back packs we are shining a light on this important issue and taking the rst steps to eliminating food insecurity in our commu nity allowing our students to come to school ready to learn and succeed. Child nutrition programs play a critical role in provid ing quality nutritious meals to millions of children every day for free or at a reduced cost. When the weekend comes, many children are left hungry and return to school unable to concentrate. This could lead to poor school performance and a variety of behavioral problems. According to Feed Ameri ca, 21.5 percent of Hamilton Countys population is consid ered food insecure and more than 70 percent of students are considered economically disadvantaged according to the Florida Department of Educa tion, underscoring the need for the program. This initiative came out of the newly formed Economic Development and Education Task Force, a partnership of the HCDA and the Hamilton County Schools. The goal of Three arrested for smuggling contraband jessie.box@ganews.com JASPER Three people were arrested on Oct. 30 for smuggling contraband into prison. The Hamilton County Sheriffs Ofce was called to the Hamilton Correctional Institution around 10 a.m., in reference to someone trying to bring contraband into the prison work camp. The report states that Rachel Shefeld Hawkins, 30, of Jennings had K-2 spice wrapped in plastic and taped in a private area. She was charged with smuggling contraband into prison and posses sion of K-2 spice. According to the HCSO, later that day, a silver Buick dropped off a contraband at the Hamilton Correctional Institution around 6:50 p.m. The report states a Jasper Police Department ofcer made contact with the driver, Kwone Levelle Matthews, 28, and passenger, Ron nie Goodman, 28, both of Live Oak. A Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro cellphone box was visible in the vehicle, which matched the cell phone dropped off at the institution, the report states. Cigars and a cell phone charger was also dropped off, according to the report. Both were charged with smug gling contraband into prison. r fntb b bbt rb Hamilton County to honor veterans jessie.box@ganews.com JASPER Two events are scheduled in Hamilton County to honor veterans this Veterans Day weekend. The town of White Springs will hold its Veterans Day celebration on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Com munity Center. The guest speaker will be Veterans Service Ofcer Jonathan Law and the Sunrise Choir will perform. A spaghetti lunch will follow the pro gram. The center is located at 12760 Roberts Street in White Springs. Hamilton County and the City of Jasper will hold their Veterans Day celebration on Monday at 11 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial Park, located on U.S. High way 41, in front of the Courthouse Annex. The guest speaker will be Seth Perron, CMSGT USAF retired. He is currently the Director of Manu facturing and Distribution for Swift Straw. bbtb brbtb JENNINGS Jennings KOA, formerly Jennings Outdoor Resort, located just off Interstate 75 Exit 467 in Jennings celebrated its fresh start on Friday, Oct. 26, along with the Hamilton County Chamber of Com merce and Hamilton County Tourism Development Council. Owners Gary and Cathy Reinard, partnering with their son Tom, acquired the property in early June of this year. Extensive renovations, in a brief four-month period, have given the campground a fresh new look and the campground now meets KOA franchise stan dards. The Reinards are experienced park operators and have won multiple awards in the campground indus try. This power family has learned to maximize their efforts by utilizing the different skill sets they each possess, working together to revitalize and renovate campgrounds. Having owned two other campgrounds in their ca reers prior to Jennings KOA, the Reinards have expe rience in the successful operation of campgrounds. Renovation is what we enjoy most, said Cathy Reinard about their expansive vision for the area and hopes this is just the beginning of complete revitaliza tion of the entire exit, bringing growth to the Jennings community. bbtbrtbrbtbb Pioneer Day a success jessie.box@gaflnews.com JASPER The third an nual Pioneer Day was held Saturday. The Hamilton County Museum and Heritage Cen ter hosted Pioneer Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of the museum. Guests were able to enjoy a petting zoo, horse-drawn carriage rides, arts and crafts and demonstrations on making butter at no cost. Joanna Floyd brought her children and their friends to Pioneer Day. I was excited to bring the children to Pioneer Day when I heard about it, Floyd said.

The season reminded me of another elec tion (well, elections, actually) from Suwannee Countys history that was criminal in ways, but also somewhat entertaining. It also reminds me of the verse from the book of Ecclesiastes stating that there is no new thing un der the sun. When Suwannee County was established on Dec. 21, 1858, the original county seat was the house of William Hines, a judge who owned property northwest of pres ent-day Live Oak near Interstate 10 and County Road 249 (Nobles Ferry Road for us long-time residents). By 1860, the county seat had moved to Houston, a commu nity along the Pensacola & Georgia Railroad (between Live Oak and Wellborn) that at the time had better ac cess to transportation. When the Civil War ended in 1865, Suwannee Coun tys fortunes changed. Although the war had brought relatively little in destruction, a new railroad through the tiny hamlet of Live Oak allowed access from all across the country. The fact that this was the only functioning railroad into Florida by this point allowed Live Oak to blossom as a community. People such as John Parsh ley (formerly of Massachusetts, New York and Ohio) moved into Live Oak to establish sawmills and other industries, and eventually they wished to have the county seat moved to the more centrally-located and connected community. The State Legislature decided that Live Oak would be the county seat on Aug. 1, 1868, but it was up to the local government to determine exactly where the courthouse would be located. Fortunately for historians, changes in the laws of Florida at the same time required that the County Commissioners begin keeping minutes of their actions. By the time the rst Board minutes were written down in October 1868, there had apparently al ready been a decision made to advertise for courthouse site locations. After several months of bid acceptances, withdrawals and rejections, the County was no closer to having a Courthouse. In the meantime, however, the Florida Legislature had changed the laws to allow citizens to decide upon the location of their County seat in January 1869 (apparently based upon numerous complaints by Suwannee County citizens who wished to decide where their own County seat would be located instead of the County Commissioners). The Suwannee County Board of County Commissioners dutifully ordered an elec tion held under the new law. An election was held on March 27, 1869, af ter being advertised in the Live Oak Advertiser (the local newspaper of the day) for four weeks. There was some discussion amongst the Commissioners, but it appeared that they decid ed to vote upon one of three sites for the county seat: a site proposed by John Parshleys widow, Nancy; a site proposed by Parshleys former partner Nathan Walker; and the old courthouse site in Houston. There were six polling places for this election: Houston, Wellborn, Live Oak, Columbus (where the Suwannee River State Park is now located), Plowdens (judging by the names of some of its citizens, it was located near modern-day Luraville) and Boston (near todays Branford). The nal results were inconclu sive: Houston received 215 votes, the Parshley site in Live Oak received 168, and there were 91 votes for Live Oak. There were major problems with the voting, such as votes registered to deceased citizens, other citizens vot ing more than once, and that the County Commissioners were unsure if the Live Oak votes were the same as the Parshley site or the Walker site votes!

Due to the various problems and questions arising from the election, the County Commission stated that the returns of said election do not show the will of the people of Suwannee County, and threw out the votes. A new election was de manded for May 15 and advertised in the Live Oak Advertiser. The County Commissioners decided that only two sites would be in the running this time: the Parshley site in Live Oak and the old court house in Houston. This second election resulted in a comfortable majority of voters selecting the Parshley site over Houston; 263 votes to 164 votes. Nancy Parshley submitted a deed to be recorded in the Clerks Ofce for the lot upon which a Courthouse would be built. Until a building was constructed, the County Commissioners rented the Baptist Church in Live Oak (originally built by John Parshley) for $1 per Board meeting and $2 a day per Circuit Court hearing.

I had an opportunity to go hunting this past weekend, but before I went, I made sure what was legal to shoot. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has made guring out what you can legally hunt more complicated than before. Starting in 2015 there are now Deer Management Units (DMU) within the zones that older hunters in Flori da are familiar with. The tricky part about it is that many of the DMU areas have different Antler require ments and season dates. If you are in Suwannee or Madison counties, you are in DMU C5 and you are not supposed to shoot any deer with less than 3 points on each side or a main beam length of 10 inches. If you are in the part of Dixie County that is south of U.S. Highway 27 then you may shoot bucks with only 2 points on each side. We are fortunate to live in DMU C5. As many of you are aware, because you have to avoid them on our roads, we have many deer that live around here. We live in the only area near here with two antlerless deer dates. This past Saturday and Sunday it was legal to harvest deer without antlers or with less than 5-inch antlers. Dont worry if you were not able to hunt this past weekend. Our second antlerless deer season in C5 will be the weekend of Nov. 17-18. So this past weekend was the start of general gun season as well as antlerless deer. I am sure many of you heard gunshots off in the distance. I know I did on both Saturday and Sunday. I frequently wonder how many of those shots hit their intended targets. One of those shots ringing out on Sunday morning was mine, and it did hit its intended target. The hunt was an exercise in patience. That is the way most hunts go, but this morning did have some excite ment before the main event. I got into my stand way before sunrise. I was thankful to have set my clock back an hour the night before giving me an extra hour of pre cious sleep. As the light started to inltrate the woods, you could hear the forest come to life. There were birds chirping, squirrels making a ruckus, and the unmistak able sound of turkeys nearby. I was patiently waiting for a deer to walk by when the ock of turkeys made their entrance. As the turkeys were milling about I had to make a decision. Do I pick out a male turkey to shoot now possibly ruining my chances of seeing a deer later, or do I let the turkeys walk by in the hopes that a deer will follow. I decided to wait in the hopes of bagging a deer. A turkey will feed my family a couple of times. A deer will nearly ll my freezer and feed my family many times. About an hour after the turkeys left, I saw a young deer jump past me. A fox or a young coyote that I could bare ly see in the pines was pursuing it. There was no way I could have shot that deer, and it was too small to shoot anyways. About an hour after that deer jumped past me, the ock of turkeys returned to the area. Since it was get ting close to the end of my hunt, I decided to shoot one of the bearded turkeys. My shot hit the bird squarely but thankfully did not ruin too much of the meat. One day soon I will try my luck again and hopefully harvest a deer this time. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator. He is an independent contractor.

In describing the GOP tax cuts, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that they and bonuses American workers were getting were crumbs. They were tax cuts for the rich. Some argued that the tax cuts would reduce revenues. Pelosi predicted, This thing will explode the decit. How about some tax facts? The argument that tax cuts reduce federal revenues can be disposed of quite easily. According to the Con gressional Budget Ofce, revenues from federal income taxes were $76 billion higher in the rst half of this year than they were in the rst half of 2017. The Treasury Department says it expects that fed eral revenues will continue to exceed last years for the rest of 2018. Despite record federal revenues, 2018 will see a massive decit, perhaps topping $1 trillion. Our massive decit is a result not of tax cuts but of proigate congressional spending that outruns rising tax revenues. Grossly false statements about tax cuts reducing reve nue should be put to rest in the wake of federal revenue increases seen with tax cuts during the Kennedy, Reagan and Trump administrations. A very disturbing and mostly ignored issue is how absence of skin in the game negatively impacts the po litical arena. It turns out that 45 percent of American households, nearly 78 million individuals, have no federal income tax obligation. That poses a serious political prob lem. Americans with no federal income tax obligation be come natural constituencies for big-spending politicians. After all, if one doesnt pay federal income taxes, what does he care about big spending? Also, if one doesnt pay federal taxes, why should he be happy about a tax cut? Whats in it for him? In fact, those with no skin in the game might see tax cuts as a threat to their handout programs. Whenever tax cuts are called for, its not long before they are called tax cuts for the rich. Lets look at who pays what in federal income taxes. Using IRS data for 2015, the latest year available, the Tax Foundation reports that the top 1 percent of earners made about 21 percent of the nations income, but their share of federal income tax es was 39 percent. They paid more in income taxes than the bottom 90 percent, who paid 29.4 percent of federal income taxes (http://tinyurl.com/y7t4ljv8). In 2015, the top 50 percent of taxpayers paid 97.2 percent of all individual income taxes. Also, the top 1 percent had an income tax rate of 27 percent, while the bottom 50 percent had a tax rate of less than 4 percent. It turns out that 892,420 households out of roughly 34 million total households paid 39 percent of federal taxes that year. Most Americans have little or no federal income tax obligation, so how in the world is it possible to give a tax cut to them? Another part of the Trump tax cuts was with corporate income lowering the rate from 35 percent to 21 per cent. That, too, has been condemned by the left as a tax cut for the rich. But corporations do not pay taxes. Why? Corporations are legal ctions. Only people pay taxes. If a tax is levied on a corporation, it will have one or more of the following responses in order to remain in business. It will raise the price of its product, lower its dividends to shareholders and/or lay off workers. Thus, only esh-andblood people pay taxes. We can think of corporations as tax collectors. Politicians love our ignorance about this. They suggest that corporations, not people, will be taxed. Heres how to see through this charade: Suppose a politi cian told you, as a homeowner, Im not going to tax you. Im going to tax your land. I hope you wouldnt fall for that jive. Land doesnt pay taxes. Getting back to skin in the game, sometimes I wonder whether one should be allowed in the game if he doesnt have any skin in it. Walter E.

After three months of grueling practices and games, bumps and bruises, moments of despair and feelings of elation, three of our local teams Suwannee, Branford and Lafayette are part of the 228 teams that qualied for the Florida High School Athletic Association playoffs. Whether they reach the ultimate goal of raising a state championship trophy at Camping World Stadium in Orlando in a few short weeks or whether their postseason experience is short, they all deserve a round of applause for their achieve ment. The postseason berth has to be extra sweet for the Bulldogs, who had barely missed out on play off trips the past two years. The sour taste of fall ing in a three-way tiebreaker shootout in 2016 and the bitter pill of barely missing out on the district title and a wild card berth a year ago must have given way to a joyous celebration Sunday when the brackets were released and Suwannee was back in the Class 5A playoffs. In Class 1A, Lafayette has been a playoff staple. The Hornets are in the postseason for the 15th time in head coach Joey Pearsons 20 years at the helm. Back in the playoffs for the second straight season, the Hornets now will look for their rst playoff win since 2012. Elsewhere in Class 1As Region 3, the Bucca neers will also open the playoffs this week and there may not have been a happier team or com munity than Branford this past weekend. With the Bucs win and the help they needed elsewhere, BHS snapped an 18-year playoff drought when it earned the sixth seed in the region. The Bucs have come a long way the past two years since coach Tim Clark took over the helm of his alma mater and they did a lot of heavy lifting to get the pro gram back to the postseason. So whether youre a Bulldog or a Buccaneer or a Hornet, be proud of your team. Make the trip to Jacksonville (Suwannee at Trinity Christian) or Cross City (Branford at Dixie County) or the short drive to Dale Walker Field in Mayo for LHS opener against Union County. And show your spirit once you get there. Congratulations Bulldogs, Bucs and Hornets. Weve got spirit, yes we do. Weve got spirit, how bout you?

Opinion A PAGE 7 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf NOVEMBER 7 & 8, 2018 WASHINGTON Until last week it seemed that the Division 1 college basketball industry could produce noth ing more risible than its pieties about cherishing the amateurism of the stu dent-athletes who generate, but get mere crumbs of, the industrys billions. Last week, however, a New York jury, which perhaps had a sense of humor, embraced this novel argument by the federal government: Basketball facto ries such as Kansas, Louisville and North Carolina State are actually vic tims of the operatives representatives of shoe companies, and actual or aspiring agents who use unsavory methods to direct blue chip recruits to the schools lucrative bas ketball programs. The three men convicted of fraud and conspiracy in the rst of at least three similar trials face imprisonment be cause of this supposed crime: The three schools mentioned above gave athletic scholarships to ve elite recruits whose families had received presumably, but perhaps not really, unbeknownst to the schools through the three men (one of them a former consultant for Adidas shoe company) payments, one of $90,000, to purchase their help in direct ing their sons to those schools, which receive much larger payments to advertise, by wearing, Adidas gear. (Nike and Under Armour also compete in the auction for schools allegiances.) Might the federal governments nite law enforcement re sources serve more deserving victims? And why is it a fed eral crime to evade the NCAAs lackadaisical enforcement of its nonsensical rules by paying families? About schools maintaining (to borrow a phrase from politics) plausi ble deniability about the meat market in tall teenagers, Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins notes: Defense attorneys presented text messages between [former Adidas consultant T.J.] Gassnola and Kansas coach Bill Self that showed the coach was well aware of Adidas efforts to steer recruits to him, if not the method. Gassnola assured Self that Adidas was here to help in getting players for the school, which was nalizing a 12-year, $191 million sponsorship deal with the sneaker company. Not bad compensation for Kansas-the-victim. An NBA program announced last month might somewhat diminish college basketballs stench, which the NBA made worse with its 2005 rule that teams could not sign players younger than 19. This created the one and done charade of players sort of attending, say, Kentucky for one season, then turning pro. Elite 18-year-olds will now be able to receive $125,000 for a season in the NBAs developmental G League, draining some talent from the pipeline sustaining the cartel of college basketball powerhouses. Perhaps schools should give candor a try, paying their basketball and football players as value-adding employees who create almost all of the $8 billion that college sports generate. Undergraduate music majors are not forbidden to earn money with their talents while in school. Kentucky head coach John Caliparis salary is $8 million, Dukes Mike Krzyzewskis is $9 million, and 44 other head coach es earn more than $2 million, so perhaps something could trickle down to the student-athletes who now receive only tuition, room, board and small cost-of-living stipends. Taylor Branch, writing in The Atlantic in 2011, noted that the NCAA minted the phrase student-athlete to deect the threat of injured athletes making workers compensation claims. In a California trial (a ruling is pending), some former athletes challenged the NCAAs strict price controls on la bor as antitrust violations that prevent competitive bidding. Amazingly, the NCAA manages to say with a straight face: Maintaining amateurism is crucial to preserving an aca demic environment in which acquiring a quality education is the rst priority. To which journalist Patrick Hruby, writing in The Washington Post, responds: A 2015 survey found that athletes in the Pac-12 conference spent an av erage of 50 hours per week on their sports and were often too exhausted to study effectively. And: A University of Georgia assistant mens basketball coach taught a course, mostly for his players, with a nal exam that began by asking: How many goals are there on a basketball court? The lesson of this tawdry story is that if you graft a mul tibillion dollar entertainment industry onto academic insti tutions, the discordance will leave the latter soiled and the former indulging in shady practices that serve the pretense that the industry is somehow something other than it is. The sentencing of the three men convicted last week is set for March 5, two weeks before the NCAA basketball tourna ment, which CBS and Time Warner pay nearly $1 billion a year to televise. It is called March Madness. Actually, the madness is a 12-month-a-year, every-year business. George Wills email address is georgewill@washpost. com.

If the constraints are not enough, write a letter to the editor. Last weeks rant implies that retailers and entrepreneurs should serve the greater good. We need to be extremely careful when some body uses that phrase, serve the greater good. Finally I thought Dr. Williams presented his thoughts simply enough that his chronic attacker or attackers could resist their kneejerk reactions to confront his views with their convoluted arguments. But alas not the case. Supply and demand too complicated or perhaps too simple of an economic concept for the anti-Williams ranter. In the ranters mind, the individual or business who prepares for a fore seeable event like a hurricane by storing sup plies and inventory should foot the bill entirely. By labeling the fair compensation of those who prepared for an increase in need for their goods or services they provide by calling this price gouging, we can all cry or chant that were the victim and those that take responsibility for themselves and others should be penalized. I notice the true American christian patriots werent out kicking over my Gillum for Gov ernor signs while it was raining! Something to be said for the land of the free, home of the brave. What is up with the Suwannee Democrat leaving off as a choice of an answer in its opin ion poll the biggest issue to most Floridians heading into election 2018...HEALTHCARE??

No, the current calendar works just ne. If a blue wave which history, polls, Democratic fervor and piles of money tell us should sweep the land in Tuesdays mid-term elections turns into no more than a ripple, its likely that Democratic leaders, and their many media enablers, will have only them selves to blame. President Trump hands them so many ways to attack him hes turned himself into the proverbial target-rich environment. But they apparently cant be satised with legitimate, truthful attack vectors. So they keep giving Trump supporters, plus those somewhere in the middle, ev idence to say they really are purveyors of fake news. Or that they have one standard for Republicans and an other for Democrats. Start with the accused pipe bomber, Cesar Sayoc, who allegedly mailed those devices to a long list of Democratic luminaries and supporters, from President Barack Obama to President Bill Clinton and his wife, former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to billionaire leftist George Soros and the cable network CNN. Fortunately, none of the devices exploded. And that fact doesnt make this a false ag or any less of a terrorist act. But coverage of the incident, especially once Sayoc was arrested, was all about how Trump was responsible for it because he had inspired Sayoc with his incendiary rhetoric. We all saw endless images of Sayoc wearing his MAGA Make America Great Again hat. Compare that with the aftermath of the June 2017 shoot ing spree at a baseball practice of congressional Republi cans in Alexandria, Virginia, in which Rep. Steve Scalise was grievously wounded. The now deceased shooter, James Hodgkinson, was a left-wing activist and outspoken supporter of Vermont senator and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, who spent much of his unsuccessful campaign for president uttering incendiary attacks against what he alleged was solely Republican support of millionaires and billionaires. He did much more than just imply that they had stolen their wealth from everybody else. Never mind that there are plenty of Democratic millionaires in Congress. But after the shooting, which nearly killed one and injured a number of others, the mainstream media downplayed Hodgkinsons politics. And Democrats like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said it would be outrageous to blame Sanders, or connect his rhetoric to the attack in any way. In fact, there were a number of declarations from pro gressives that the injured Republicans deserved it, since they hadnt been sufciently aggressive in disarming the population framed as common sense gun safety laws. All of which is an obvious double-standard. Its inexcus able for Trump to be hateful and divisive and sometimes he is but ne for Democrats when they do the same thing. Recall that they never got tired of comparing President George W. Bush to Hitler one of the greatest mass-mur derers in history even though Bush was vastly more classy and polite in response. Indeed, being civil to #there sistance doesnt get you any civility in return. Then there is the more recent, hideous mass murder Trump catches more blame for others violence SEE TRUMP, PAGE 10A

Any opportunity is a good time to commemorate the bravery and seless deeds of military personnel, but certain prominent holidays in November make this an especially important time to thank veterans for their service. November 11 is Veterans Day in the United States and Remembrance Day in Canada. Its also known as Armistice Day in other parts of the world. These holidays honor all military veterans who have provided service to their countries, and that each falls on November 11 is no coincidence, as the day commemorates the anniversary of the end of World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Many places around the world pause and remember fallen veterans on November 11, but a good majority of Veterans Day and Remembrance Day commemorative events focus on past and current veterans who are still alive. There are many ways to honor the military at home and abroad in time for the November festivities. The following are just a handful of ways to show appreciation for military men and women. When dining out, ask your server if you can pay the tab for a soldier or veteran you see in the restaurant. Attend a military parade with your family and explain the signicance of the day to children in attendance. Draft letters and send care packages to soldiers currently in service far away from home. Ask your company if Veterans Day or Remembrance Day can be an observed holiday at your place of business each year to pay homage to servicemen and women. Visit a military memorial in a city near you. Your town also may have its own memorial. Petition town ofcials to erect a memorial if your town does not already have one. Such memorials can be a source of inspiration for your community. Support a military family in your town who may be missing a loved one stationed elsewhere. Make meals, mow the lawn, help with grocery shopping, or simply provide emotional support. Volunteer time at a veterans hospital. You may be able to read with veterans or engage in other activities. Get involved with a military support charity that can provide muchneeded funds to struggling families or disabled veterans. Have children speak with veterans in your family, including grandparents, uncles and aunts or even their own parents. It can help them gain perspective on the important roles the military plays. Ask a veteran to give a commencement speech at a school or to be the guest of honor at a special function. Drive disabled veterans to doctors appointments or to run any errands. Support a local VFW organization. Create a scrapbook for a veteran in your life. Cheer for or thank military personnel each time you see them. Visit the veterans portion of a nearby cemetery and place poppies or other owers on the graves. Always keep the military on your mind and never forget those who have served and didnt return home. Armistice Day, Remembrance Day and Veterans Day are great ways to honor past and current military for their service and sacrice. REMEMBERING OUR VETERANS

The accused shooter, Robert Bowers, is not just an outspoken anti-Semite. He is an outspoken hater of Trump, who claimed the president was being con trolled by Jews. So, based on the Cesar Sayoc rule, those who hate Trump and there are millions who proudly say they do are at least part ly responsible for inspiring Bowers alleged crimes. Yet, the mantra from #theresistance was the same Trump was to blame for the alleged actions of a man who hated him. Really? Keep in mind that the lefts support of Jews is, lets say, selective. They were the harshest crit ics of Trump besides the Palestinians when the pres ident announced the move of the U.S. embassy in Isra el to Jerusalem. Keep in mind that after the shooting, Trump called for wiping out the hate ful poison of anti-Semitism from our world. The scourge of an ti-Semitism cannot be ig nored, cannot be tolerated, and it cannot be allowed to continue, he said. It must be confronted and condemned everywhere it rears its ugly head. We must stand with our Jewish brothers and sisters to de feat anti-Semitism and van quish the forces of hate. Yet when Trump visited Pittsburgh after the shoot ing, one protester contend ed that his words, actions, and polices have espoused and emboldened the type of violence and hatred our community so tragically endured with the massacre of 11 Jews in their place of worship. And before the presi dent made the trip to Pitts burgh, there were also de mands from some in the Jewish community that he renounce white national ism. What had Trump said or done to prompt that? He had said, at a rally, that he is a nationalist. Not a white nationalist sim ply a nationalist. Another version of what he has said since he began Continued From Page 7A Trump campaigning for the ofce America rst. Being just a nationalist, in the view of a number of my progressive friends, is bad enough. Oh, they say it might be OK for a persons rst loyalty to be to his home country, but he should never commit the unseemly act of saying so publicly. Tacky very tacky. Not something sophisticated citizens of the world would say. OK, I disagree, but can respect criticism of some thing Trump actually said. But that wasnt enough. They had to demand that he renounce something he didnt say. And, of course it was re ported that way. Anybody simply hearing or reading the demand would assume he had publicly declared himself a white nationalist. Which is just what they wanted them to think. This may not be enemy of the people stuff, but it is denitely enmity to the truth. And an increasing number of people are get ting wise to it. Taylor Armerding is an independent columnist.

The task force in cludes Ramsey, Nat Com bass, Rex Mitchell, Philip Pinello, Chris Combass, Ida Daniels, Phyllis Porter, Betty Linton and Vernon Douglas. It is very exciting for the Hamilton County School District to partner with the Hamilton County Development Authority to work together to meet the many diverse needs of our students, said Rex Mitchell, the superinten dent of schools. We have been meeting as a group to discuss various programs that we can im plement that would help improve the quality of education in the district. In small Districts such as Hamilton County, re sources are limited so it is imperative that we work together to pool resources and maximize results. In our small communi ty, partnerships are every thing, said Nat Combass, chair of the HCDA. We have seen that when we come together as a com munity we can tackle any challenge. Working with our education leaders is critical to improving our communitys economy and long-term outlook. The efforts of the task force extend beyond the HCDA and Hamilton County Schools. The task force is hoping to engage the non-prots, faithbased community and res idents for donations to the backpack program. Col lection boxes are located in the Courthouse Annex, (HCDA Ofce) at 1153 U.S. Highway 41 NW, Suite 4 in Jasper.

We caught the fall foli age at the very best time and the hillsides were ablaze with color! Its the last big event of tourism season and there were still plenty of tourists there, soaking in the scenery and visiting all the shops and restaurants. Merri and I enjoy the places that we visit and they usually give us an increased appreciation of where we live, White Springs! Believe it or not, that region of North Carolina and our town of White Springs have a lot in common, or, as I often say, We are all connected. Our exploration of the local sites and scenery revealed many things that the towns of that region of Franklin, North Carolina, and White Springs, Florida, have in common. Both towns are located in regions that are rich in history, full of natural beauty, and very dependent upon water for life and for tourism. Both towns are intersected by a major hiking trail. Franklin has done a much better job of capitalizing on the hikers and bikers and kayakers and other tourists that pass through their town, but they set an example that we should be able to follow. Franklin, surrounded by national and state parks and forests, has recognized the potential growth that the natural beauty and resources of the area bring to it. Every place we went, I was thinking to myself, We could do this in White Springs! There were no amusement parks or overly articial aspects to the tourism there. People came for the real thing. They came for the natural beauty, the history, the real and authentic culture and music and food. Well, weve got that here in White Springs too! Yeah, were not the mountains, but we have a different vari ety of natural treasures, many that can be enjoyed year round. What are we lacking? Vision? Marketing? Amenities? Perhaps to some degree, but we are not without people who recognize our shortcomings in these areas and they are working hard to overcome them. These folks need our support. I say to them, Dont be afraid to pursue a visionary project! Its been my experience that people will go out of their way to support such a project. Let me give you an example that we experienced on our North Carolina visit. One morning we went to a restaurant called Yonder, a tiny, out of the way place that had a 20-minute wait to get seated, and everybody in line waited patiently. Their secret? Inspired by a passion for real, locally-sourced food and a love of Western North Carolina, the owners proudly state that all of their dishes are made to order from the same ingredients that nourished their parents and grandparents. Their meats are grassfed, pasture raised and free of nitrates, nitrites and antibiotics. A regional mill provides them with heirloom our and stone ground grits, they use fresh, freerange eggs and all of their greens and vegetables are sourced from surrounding area farms. People eat there because they want to support local farms and eat real food and also because its a clean and neat place with a friendly and attentive staff, reasonable prices and the food is delicious! We also visited one of the sev eral craft breweries in the area. Most of the craft breweries there have a reputation for excellence, and here in North Flori da we can be proud of the excellence in historic preservation, friendly service and top-notch hand-crafted beer that Halpatter Brewing Company has brought to nearby Lake City. As we contemplate the future of our region, Im thankful that we do have some visionary folks around here that are willing to dare to try something new. Yes we do have some folks with fresh ideas and new perspectives, and there is room for more! Im writing this on the day before midterm elections and as I have done in the past, Im willing to make some predic tions. By the time that you read this, it will be evident that all of my predictions were accurate! I predict that while some of you will be obnoxiously happy and some of you will be ridiculously despon dent, most of you will already be adjust ing and accepting the fact that the voters got the last word, and Ill bet that you are ready to move on, very relieved that it is nally over! I predict that there will be celebrations. I hope that at these celebra tions they will send out a clarion call for national cooperation and compromise of the sort that we all practice in our local daily lives. How else would we ever get anything done? I predict that there will be predictions of gloom and doom, but I think that most of us feel that gloom and doom thinking has had its cloudy day and it is now time to move on and enjoy some lighter moments. After all, there are things that most all of us agree on. I predict that 99 percent of us will be deep ly appreciative of our election ofcials and poll workers. It was a long confusing ballot and Ill bet that there were long lines throughout the day. Thank you to our wonderful folks here in White Springs who man the polls. I predict that there was a good turnout but that amazingly, quite a few of you did not vote. Regard less of how it turned out, if you voted you should be proud. If you did not vote, well I just dont know what to say to you except to suggest that perhaps you should show up at one of the area Veterans day events and contemplate the fact that our service people were willing to put their lives on the line for you and for your lib erty, which includes your right to vote. I predict that, regardless of the mindset in Washington D.C., it will still be up to us, that we will still have to strive to do our part for Florida and for White Springs. Remember, Think globally but act local ly is the recipe for success. I predict that, no matter what the outcome of the elec tion, life will go on and the good people of White Springs will do their part Now, go out and take down your signs, put up your ag, and hope that in the future we will nd ways to work together to get some good things done for White Springs. I predict that whatever the outcome of the election, we will be strong and we will survive, and with a little common sense, cooperation, civility and congeniality, we can even prosper! White Springs Veterans Day Program and Luncheon will take place at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at the White Springs Community Center, 12760 Roberts Street, White Springs. All Veterans are invited.

Backs Turned Looking Down the Path as performed by Warren Zevon A few weeks ago, when the lottery reached north of a billion dollars, my husband joked that it was time to break down and buy some tickets. Nine hundred and eighty million? I cant be bothered, he said. But over a billion? Now thats real money. We laughed, partly because neither of us have ever pur chased a lottery ticket. And partly because the idea of being awarded over a billion dollars for buying a ticket in a conve nience store is bizarre. Tanta lizing, but bizarre. I think I read that our chances of winning the prize with the purchase of one ticket were around two hundred million to one. But lets assume we win! What would we do with $630 million extra dollars or so, as suming we pocket a billion dol lars up front and pay the 37 per cent tax rate on our windfall the rst year? Spend, spend, spend, right? And go broke and become unhappy in the process? Maybe. Everyone knows that lottery winners frequently face nancial ruin; complicated tax issues, spending to beat the band, give aways to family members and friends clamoring for a piece of the pie. All of these reasons and many more often contribute to money problems for winners. What was startling to me was the idea ad vanced by a Wall Street Journal article that even neigh bors of lottery winners are more likely to go broke than average people. Why? You guessed it: keeping up with the Joneses broke their budget. Neighbors of people who have experienced sudden wealth often feel com pelled to enhance their own life style to keep up with the spend ing occurring next door. We cant help ourselves sometimes. We see new cars and boats and toys in the driveway next door, and it does something to us. All of which brings us to an interesting issue which impacts us all: how do we compare our selves to others nancially? One study asserts that its foolhardy and unprotable to dwell on the nancial picture of those much wealthier than ourselves. It tends to make us envious and depressed. Its much healthier to compare ourselves with those who have less money than we do. Or better yet, if we have to compare our nancial situation to someone elses, we might be wise to compare it to our own nancial picture many years ago. This tends to make us understand how far we have come, and is also more likely to make us grateful for what has transpired since our salad days. Margaret R.

Freedom is the bread we eat; Let it be the way we die! Jessamyn West In our nation, we, at present, have more than a million dedicated individuals who are serving active duty in the various branches of the United States Military or in the Military Reserve including the Army National Guard. Our hats are off to these brave men and women who give up a great deal to serve our nation in the various branches of the United States Military. The mili tary life is a good life, but it can be a challenging one. Your career placement choices are not your own. We appreciate the dedication of our nations veterans who give up so much for the freedom we all en joy and, at times, take for granted. From the time our Republic was born more than 240 years ago, brave men and women have willingly put their personal lives on hold to de fend our nation against all enemies for eign and domestic. Our nation was born out of controver sy. Our citizens made a decision that we would no longer have taxation without representation in the English Parliament and so, against, odds that were staggering ly against a young, sparsely settled nation, our Republic was born. We were tested in the War of 1812 when the United States White House and a lot of Washington, D.C. was burned by the British. We were again tested during the Civil War when brother fought against brother in one of the bloodiest and most costly wars in the nations history. Again, we fought during the Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, and the Gulf War, and somewhere in the world today there is unrest and our military is there; not because many of them want to be there, but because they are living up to their oath of ofce in defending the freedoms we all hold dear. As we celebrate Veterans Day on Monday, Nov. 12, let us pause and with a heart full of thanksgiving, truly give thanks for the brave individuals who are willingly serving in our nations military services. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to those serving in all our nations military services; not just on Veterans Day but each day throughout the year. Let a Veteran know they are appreciat ed. Celebrate this day set aside to honor our military veterans with all the joy, and gusto, that we, as Americans can give to those who protect our freedoms each and every day. Freedom is not free. Someone pays a price for it each day. Someone is stationed thousands of miles from home looking out across desert sand and dreaming of the Suwannee River. Someone is suffering pain and distress in a VA Hospital to day, and this isnt the rst day they have suffered or will suffer. Someone goes about their daily tasks, and they never talks about the horrors of war they have witnessed, but their minds and hearts are tormented. Many are tormented and torn about friends and loved ones who cannot celebrate Veterans Day 2018. In my small hometown of White Springs, Florida, we will celebrate Vet erans Day at the White Springs Com munity Center, at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10. If you are a military veteran or the spouse of a military veteran, come join us for a time of good food, laughter, reection, and celebration. All Around the Banks of the Suwannee, various towns and cities will celebrate our Veterans in their own special way. If you cant do anything else, you can help those who are organizing events by giving of your time, money, or encouragement. God Bless our Veterans, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. God Bless America!!!

The Great Amer ican Smokeout raises awareness about the dan gers of smoking and the many effective resources available to help smokers successfully quit. While it is common knowledge that smoking is bad for the smoker, not many consider the effect this addiction has on lo cal businesses. In Florida alone, the annual direct costs to the economy attrib utable to smoking exceed of $19.6 billion, including: workplace productivity losses of $4.4 billion; pre mature death losses of $7.9 billion; and direct medi cal expenditures of $7.2 billion. Between both the additional healthcare costs and losses in productivity, an employee who smokes could cost a business more than $6,000 every year. For Tobacco Free Florida encourages quitting smoking in Great American Smokeout each employee that quits, a business can save as much as $2,000 per year through reduced insurance cost. Smoking remains the leading cause of prevent able disease and death in Florida and the United States. On average, smok ers die 10 years earlier than nonsmokers. Smoking can also cost individuals a lot more than just their health. A pack-a-day smoker in Florida can spend more than $2,000 in just one year and more than $10,000 in ve years on cigarettes.

Hallow een just passed and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. The time of year so many of us dread because everything seems to be out of our control. Our eating, our drinking, our spending, and even our day-to-day lives trying to get everything done on our long to-do lists. But it doesnt have to feel like youre out of control. Slow down and enjoy every moment of the season. If you want to eat that piece of pumpkin pie eat it. When we deprive ourselves by not allowing ourselves to re lax and truly enjoy the holidays, we end up overindulging in EVERYTHING not just eating. Think about it. If you cut yourself some slack and eat the piece of pie, you satisfy the craving and want for that special des sert that you only have during the holidays. When you dont allow yourself some wig gle room, you end up going overboard and eat way more than you want. As humans, we dont like to be deprived or told no we cant do that or no we cant have that. So dont do it to yourself especially during the holiday season. On the ip side, dont make the mistake of thinking that since its the holidays, its OK to totally ignore what you eat and not to exercise. If you want to maintain your tness, its important that you MAKE the time to exercise and watch your nutrition at least 80 percent of the time. Lets recap: 1. Keep to an exer cise routine. 2. Watch what you eat. 3. Plan ahead. If you are going to a party in the evening, eat a healthy meal before you go. Youll be less likely to snack. By following these three simple steps you will stay on track through the 2018 holiday season and be ahead of the game for 2019. You CAN do it! Have a great week!

Denise may be reached at DeniseSanger.com, 386-2926105 or denisesanger@gmail.com A good nights sleep is something we can all appreciate. Whether you have struggled through working a night shift, rocked babies to sleep after 2 a.m. feed ings, or just suffer from occasional insom nia, we all know the longing to be able to just get some rest. Not many things are more frustrating than watching the clock tick closer and closer to morning, know ing it is going to be a tough day without any sleep? However, sometimes in the midst of our frustration God can shed light on some things we are just too busy to consider in the daylight hours. For example, replaying a conversation in your mind can give God just the right opportunity to remind you that an apology is warranted for your sharp response to someone. Or, perhaps, someone crosses your mind that you havent talked to re cently and you feel an urgency to give them a call the next day. In the quiet, we can often hear God speak more clearly. Without the distractions of the day, we can focus on how we need to respond to what we hear Him say. I believe that God uses these times to call us back to His purpos es in very intentional ways. As we return to our study of Esther, this week we nd that God uses sleepless nights even in the lives of those who do not know Him. Last week we looked in as Esther hosted a banquet for the King and Haman. For the second time since she approached him in the throne room, King Xerxes asked Esther to tell him her re quest. Her request was for he and Haman return the next day to another banquet with the promise that she would tell him her real request. I dont know about you, but that fully explains the rst verse of chapter 6: On that night the king could not sleep. Have you ever had someone call and Heart Matters God works even through sleepless nights MADISON Local stars of the North Florida Community College com munity theatre troupe, the Sentinel Upstage Players, have been working since September to bring their original musical drama, The Greatest Generation, to life on the Van H. Priest Auditorium stage. This Veterans Day trib ute will be performed on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now; admission is free for veterans and all military personnel. Patrons will journey through the WWII era as a U.S. family, getting ready for Christmas, sends a son off to war and experiences, through radio broadcasts, the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor and the ups and downs of this historic peri od. The musical drama fea tures stories of local WWII hero Captain Colin P. Kel ly Jr., cultural icon Rosie the Riveter and women of WWII, the Navajo Code Talkers, the Tuskegee Air men and more. The production is a true community creation, co-written by Denise Bell (Madison County), Rachel Bunting (Leon Coun ty) and Christian Wig glesworth (Leon County), and features a local cast and crew representing Madison and Lafayette counties. The performance begins at 7 p.m. Friday and Satur day. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 12 and under, and all veterans and military personnel re ceive free admission. Tickets may be pur chased at the door or in ad vance at the NFCC College Advancement ofce, online at www.ticketsource.us/ nfcc or by calling 850-9731653. Veteran and military personnel discounts cannot be made online and should be reserved by phone or at the door. For more information, visit www.nfcc.edu/senti nel-upstage-players or call 850-973-1653. NFCC Community Theatre to present Veterans Day tribute ask to meet with you tomorrow to dis cuss something? For crying out loud, tell me now! I am convinced King Xerxes spent that night imagining all the things a Queen could request. By this time in our story, Esther had been his queen for more than ve years, so he knew this was not her typical mode of operation. Something was denitely up and the curiosity was killing him. Interestingly, I found that I have something in common with the king! When I cant sleep, I read. Technically, he had someone read to him, which is a perk of being king, I suppose. (I dont think my husband would be thrilled if I woke him up to read to me when I cant sleep.) So what happens next gives us a clear picture of Gods timing at work. As the chronicles were read, the account of Mordecais tip to the king about the plot on his life (2:21) was brought to the kings remembrance and he learned that no honor was given to Mordecai for this act of loyalty. Wanting to correct this immediately, he tells his servant to send in someone from the court to help him. In the meantime, Haman has arrived early to the palace to see the King on an urgent matter. If you recall, on the advice of his wife and friends, Haman has instructed workers to build gallows on which he in tends to see Mordecai hanged (5:14). Timing. Gods timing. Haman intended evil toward Gods people, and God inter venes. Not only is Gods plan to rescue His people, He will honor them and bring down their enemies. Sound to me like a pretty good deal in exchange for a sleep less night. Because every heart matters!

Once we got that touchdown it kind of loosened everyone up, said White, a se nior. It was a memorable night for White and the entire Bulldogs squad. Not only did they win in style on Senior Night, the Bulldogs snapped a two-year playoff drought thanks to an excellent allaround performance. Even after some tough losses and facing adversity this season, Suwannee was able to get to the postseason. We had a lot of doubts throughout the season, but we came together the whole season to push through it, said White. I never lost faith in us. This is amazing TCHS quarterback DaCorian Bellamy threw for 187 yards, but Suwannees de fense stepped up when it mattered most. SHS had an important goal-line stand at the end of the rst half and then the offense marched down the eld for a touchdown. Suwannee also won the turnover battle. SHS forced four turnovers, including a Jaquez Moore 33-yard interception return for a touchdown. Continued From Page 1B Suwannee rrftfnt nbntt bt

Series: Branford leads 18-17 Last meeting: Dixie County won 53-16 in 2016. Notes: The Bears (7-3) have won four of their last five, even with star running back Carlos Williams missing three of those games. Williams has run for 1,327 yards and 20 touchdowns this season.

STATISTICALLY SPEAKING A look at the statistical leaders across the Suwannee Valley in passing, rushing and receiving (based on yardage) through the first eight weeks of the 2018 season. PLAYERS OF THE WEEK CARLTON HALL RB | SUWANNEE JAQUEZ MOORE WR | SUWANNEE L IVE OAK The last time the Suwannee, Branford and Lafayette football teams made it to the state playoffs in the same year was in 2000. Now, with some familiar faces on the sidelines, the Bulldogs, Buccaneers and Hornets will all be participating in the 2018 playoffs. All three teams are led by hometown coaches who are back at their high school alma mater Joey Pearson with the Hornets, Kyler Hall with the Bulldogs and Tim Clark with the Buccaneers. Pearson, the longest-tenured head coach of the group, has been Lafayettes head football for the past 20 seasons. Hes taken the Hornets to the postseason 15 times. Its been a pretty good ride for Pearson, especially as of late. Before the season, it was announced that he would be joining the FACA Hall of Fame. In the middle of the season, Pearson picked up his 150th win as LHS head coach. I have a lot invested here, in Mayo and Lafayette High, Pearson said. I take great pride in our program, our town and bringing a positive light to the community that supports us so much. Lafayette is the fourth seed in the region and will host Union County in the first round Friday. The Hornets are in the playoffs for the second straight season at 7-3, winners of five of its last six games. Its our first home playoff game since 2012, Pearson said. It will be a big advantage to play here. Suwannee, which had barely missed the postseason the past two years, earned the eighth seed in Class 5A, Region 1. Fresh off a 33-7 win against Taylor County to finish 6-4 in the regular season, the Bulldogs head to top-seeded Trinity Christian on Friday to open the playoffs. There have been a lot of emotions this season, said third-year SHS coach Kyler Pearson, Hall, Clark lead hometown teams into playoffs Ran for 209 yards and three touchdowns to propel the Bulldogs past Taylor County and into the playoffs. Had a pick-6 at a crucial moment in the third quarter to give Suwannee a 19-0 lead. First meeting Notes: The Conquerers are the heavy favorites as the No. 1 seed in the region and also the frontrunner to win the Class 5A state title. Looking at common opponents this season, Trinity Christian (10-0) defeated Columbia 31-30 and crushed Ribault 47-0. Suwannee (6-4) lost 49-7 at Columbia and 16-15 against Ribault. HOME GROWN Paul Buchanan (suwanneesports.com) Suwannee coach Kyler Hall said hes learned more from his team this year than they have from him. AREA PASSING LEADERS Jaxson Beach, Lafayette 114-194-2024, 25 touchdowns Tyree Taylor, Suwannee 73-151-1083, 10 touchdowns Jevin Johnson, Branford 34-77-508, 4 touchdowns DeNandre Johnson, Hamilton County 20-80-365, 4 touchdowns Seth Heiderman, Branford 22-46-302, 6 touchdowns RUSHING Aaron McQuay, Branford 162-1160, 14 touchdowns Carlton Hall, Suwannee 151-1042, 10 touchdowns Jaxson Beach, Lafayette 134-1019, 13 touchdowns Garris Edwards, Lafayette 122-917, 11 touchdowns Dakota Hamm, Branford 90-546, 4 touchdowns RECEIVING Ben Massey, Lafayette 26-787 12 touchdowns Jaquary Pratt, Suwannee 23-471 4 touchdowns Richy James, Lafayette 20-414 4 touchdowns Adam Perry, Lafayette 23-327, 3 touchdowns Aderias Ealy, Hamilton County 14-320 5 touchdowns Hall. But this group has taught me more than Ive taught them. Theyve shown me what it looks like to keep playing and keep believing. So happy for these guys and the coaching staff. Also in the playoffs in Region 1 are Godby, the No. 2 seed which hosts No. 7 Ponte Vedra, West Florida, the third seed which faces No. 6 Bolles, and Ribault, the No. 4 seed which will host fifth-seeded Wakulla. In Class 1A, the Buccaneers used a strong finish to grab the sixth and final seed in Region 3. Branford will head to third-seeded Dixie County on Friday. The Bucs are 6-4, the programs first winning season since 2010. BHS will enter the playoffs with wins in three of its final four games. HIGH SCHOOL 2018 FOOTBALL GLANCE UNION CO. AT LAFAYETTE Series: Union County leads 8-2-1 Last meeting: UCHS won 21-7 in 1968. Notes: Union County (5-5) is led by 1,000-yard rusher Keyshawn Jones and big defensive lineman Agelu Nunu (five sacks, nine tackles for loss). The Tigers went 2-3 in their final five games, but two of those losses were against quality playoff teams. UCHS lost 21-15 to Class 3A Fort White and fell 12-7 to Class 4A Santa Fe. LHS (7-3) has won five of its past six games and had an open week last week. The Hornets are led by quarterback Jaxson Beach (3,043 total yards of offense and 38 touchdowns), running back Garris Edwards (917 yards and 11 TDs rushing) and wide receiver Ben Massey (953 yards and 16 TDs receiving). 7:30 P.M. Jamie Wachter Branford coach Tim Clark has led the Bucs to their first winning season since 2010 and first playoff appearance since 2000. Jamie Wachter Joey Pearson has directed Lafayette to the playoffs for the 15th time in 20 years as LHS head coach. Its a great feeling, because the playoffs were something I never got to experience as a player, said BHS alum and secondyear Bucs head coach Tim Clark. As far as it happening in a short time, thats just the product of a talented group of kids that came together and bought what were selling. This is all them. I just hope groups in the future learn from this team and continue to raise the expectations higher and higher. Madison County, the defending state champion, is the regions top seed and will host the Lafayette-Union County winner in the second round. Chiefland is the second seed and will host the Branford-Dixie winner. Mike Jones | michael.jones@gaflnews.com AARON MCQUAY RB | BRANFORD Ran for 150 yards on just 10 carries against Cornerstone Christian.

SOSMP to host vintage trailer and car show rfnft LIVE OAK The Suwannee River Water Management District is reminding district residents to shift landscape watering to once per week, which began Sunday. The fall wa tering schedule will remain in effect until March 10, 2019. Cooler temperatures and shorter days call for less watering in the winter due to slower growth and less evaporation. Irrigation schedules seek to ensure efcient water use and con serve water resources. Additionally, November is historically the driest month of the year which works in perfect tandem with the slower growing season, lunar changes and cooler temperatures. The changing seasons are a visual reminder that nature works to maintain itself during colder, drier times and requires much less water to preserve the health of ora and fauna, Hugh Thomas, executive director of the SRWMD, said in a release. Irriga tion scheduling is one way that we can all contribute to conserving water, espe cially when there is not a natural need for it. The watering schedule applies to residential land scaping; public, commer cial, and industrial prop erty; hotels and motels; and public medians. Key guidelines include: occur between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.; of water or the depth of a ve-ounce tuna can, may be applied per irrigation zone per day; one hour per irrigation zone; address locations are per mitted to water on Satur days (Address ending in the numbers 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 or the letters N-Z); locations are permitted to water on Sundays (Address ending in the numbers 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 or letters A-M); and ties are permitted to water on Tuesdays. Business and residents are encouraged to use Flor ida-Friendly Landscape principles and skip wa tering when it rains close to a scheduled irrigation day. Agricultural and other large irrigation uses main tain year-round guidelines through the Districts wa ter use permitting program. The mission of the SR WMD is to protect and manage water resources using science-based solu tions to support natural systems and the needs of the public. The district holds true to the belief of water for nature, water for people. Headquartered in Live Oak, the district serves 15 surrounding north-central Florida coun ties. rrfnrtrf bbbr rrr r

NOVEMBER 7 & 8, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 10B State & Region rf eve.copeland@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. School children of all ages jump for joy at the thought of summer vacation. Some parents, however, dread the summer break, since they have to nd child care if they work or nd ways to entertain their kids if they dont. The traditional 10-month system hails from a time when much of the United States was agrarian and children were needed in the summer for eld work. Some see this model as outdated and pre fer to move to year-round education. A study by the Congressional Research Service on year-round schools found that by the 2011-12 school year, the alternative year-round model had been implemented in 3,700 schools around the country. In the Sunlight Project area Valdos ta, Moultrie, Thomasville, Dalton, Milled geville and Tifton, Ga., and Live Oak, Fla. the team takes a look at the possibility of year-round school. What would year-round school look like? Tift County School Superintendent Pat rick Atwater said there are multiple varia tions on year-round school. The rst model is, according to Atwa ter, similar to other rst-world countries that consistently outperform the United States in testing, citing China, Japan and Germany as examples. Some places consider year-round school 220, 230 days, he said. Other places, particularly in large metro areas, have year-round school, but they change students out every few months be cause of a lack of facilities. They have school year round, but theyre running in 1,000 kids and then running out 1,000 kids, he said. Theyre alternating (student groups). The most common form that yearround school takes in Georgia is the third variation: taking the usual 180 days of in struction and spreading it out more evenly throughout the year. Theyll have two weeks at Christmas, two weeks in the spring, two weeks in fall and maybe four weeks in summer, he said. Thats considered year-round school. According to the National Education Association, the most popular year-round calendar is the 45-15 plan, which is when students attend school for 45 days and then get 15 days off. There is also the 6020 and 90-30 plan. What changed? The 180-day model has been in place for decades. Atwater said the original school calendar was based on an agrarian system, when everyone wanted summers off so children and teenagers could help in the elds. You can go back to some of our at tendance records from the s and s, and I have done that, to read the massive absences of students and what product they were picking, what harvest was tak ing place at the time, he said. They were starting in September, after your Labor Days. When we were really focused on, for instance, tobacco. When I was a student it was your local high school students who harvested all the local tobacco. Every farmer had ve, 10, 20 acres of tobacco. Your tobacco didnt come in good until late August, maybe July. Now, were in school. Back then, you had to have stu dents to pick it. He said since students are no longer the primary workforce for agricultural labor, the school start date was moved earlier than Sept.1. Atwater said state-mandated testing has driven a lot of changes to the school calendar. When Dalton Public Schools Deputy Superintendent Don Amonett began with the system 42 years ago, the school year for students usually began in late August. But (we) did not have as long a spring break, he said. We did not have a fall break. We did not have a February break. And the Christmas and Thanksgiving breaks were shorter. We had a longer summer break but we had fewer and shorter breaks during the year. Amonett said the calendar committee has discussed a year-round school year in the past, but theres never been a strong consensus to adopt it. Under current state law and state school board policy, the school calendar is deter mined by local boards of education. School systems must be in session to participate in state testing and must pro vide a sufcient amount of instructional time to cover the content to be tested on an exam before the exams are adminis tered. If the number of school days remains the same, there is little variance in the cost of operating the school system based upon the time of the year. Ventilation systems must be operated year-round to control humidity in school buildings to avoid the growth of mold and mildew. Buildings must also be cooled for summer school and training opportunities for staff. How would it affect students? Atwater said while more instruction days are benecial for students since that allows for more face-to-face time with teachers and deeper dives into sub jects there are drawbacks, namely students arent given the leeway to move at their own pace, they miss out on family time and the intense stress that constant school places on children. A lot of times their school placement is based on their performance, Atwater said. So the students in some of those countries are under extreme amounts of stress. He said schools in the United States are already seeing students suffering from Atwater said since Tift County is a charter system, it has that exibility to offer optional summer school and enrich ment activities, such as eld trips. Tift County offers summer school for second-grade students who arent reading on grade level and Atwater said participat ing students showed improvement. It denitely has its benets, he said. Done properly, you could have extended school years but not stress the students out. Vickie Music DePratter, the chief nancial ofcer for the Suwannee County School District, added that with a yearround calendar, those summer school op portunities may be less needed due to the shortened breaks. DePratter said the pros for moving to a year-round calendar include consistency in routine for the students and learning gains not being interrupted by the extend ed breaks. Shorter and more frequent breaks may actually revitalize both students and staff, she said. Atwater said summer slide is a constant issue, as is the lesser-known Christmas break slide. That same concept is the reason most school systems, specically those that are on block schedule, start when they do, he said. If youre on a block schedule, all of your high-stakes testing, the tests that determine whether a child passed or failed, or a teacher maintained his or her position, or a principals school score was high enough to avoid government intervention, were all given right before Christmas, he said. Those are all the rst or second week in December. You have to have 90 days before the testing period, because you have to have 90 days done, you can see how we pushed well before Labor Day. This is particularly difcult for high school classes, where material builds on lessons from the previous day, Atwater said. Valdosta City Schools Superintendent Dr. Todd Cason said student needs must be considered before making a decision about changing the school schedule. We have to think of all the what ifs if we go to a year-long calendar, he said. Research says that because of whats called the summer slide, kids need to have shorter breaks. The summer slide is a re ality, and it is something we battle with. With taking two months in the summer, kids lose a lot of what they learn from the previous year. We have to try to rebuild what theyve lost in the summer. Another factor in favor of year-round schools comes in the form of meeting stu dents basic needs, such as food. For students in Title I schools, school meals may be the only meals they eat all day. Lack of food is exacerbated during the summer. Five in six kids who rely on free or reduced lunch arent getting fed during summer break, according to NoKidHun gry.org. Because Valdosta City Schools is a Title I school system, 100 percent of its students are eligible for free or reduced lunch. The most recent school year data for Lowndes County Schools is from the 2016-17 school year with 52 percent of its students being eligible for free or reduced lunch. Tift County has multiple feeding pro grams to provide children with food during the summer. One teacher from Thomas County Cen tral High School is against year-round school. Leigh Barwick, who teaches 11th grade at TCCHS, said parents have to hire peo ple to look after young children when they are not in school. Older children can work during summer months and produce in come, Barwick said. Athletic and church camps are available in the community during summer months, and some students take college classes. Theres a lot of benets to having the summer months off besides needing a break to relax and refresh and regroup, Barwick said. Children need to enjoy and experience life, Barwick said. Summer provides that time to build themselves as a person. Caleb Moore, a TCCHS senior, agrees. I look at summertime as an exploration point. he said, adding he can work and attend classes during summer months. Moore, whose mother, Renae Moore, is a TCCHS English teacher, attends band, leadership, church and self-improvement camps during the summer. How it would affect teachers Teachers need a break, Atwater said. Teaching is not an easy task. The stresses of the job have reached a point now that, without good extended opportunities for teachers to rest their mind, body and soul, for a teacher to think that theyre in those classrooms dealing with the situations they have to deal with, it would be diabol ical for their health. I would be the rst to say that teachers need summer break. Cason agrees. We have to consider how teachers would feel, the Valdosta city school su perintendent said. We have several teach ers whose children go to Lowndes County Schools. If theyre not on a year-long cal endar, it may be difcult for those teach ers to nd babysitters. It may be a prob lem where we lose teachers because their calendar is different from their childs. While Tift County offers teachers pro fessional development opportunities and certications are offered by the school system during the school year, pursuing advanced certicates and higher degrees can only be done during the summer. Barwick said in year-round school, students attend class, then have several weeks off. When classes resume, teachers must reteach while attempting to meet mandated teaching requirements. Many educators, she said, use summer months for professional development to elevate their education level, which results in increased pay. The Thomas County School System explored the possibility of adopting a bal anced calendar, sometimes referred to as a year-round calendar. Under this proposal, there would have been a twoor three-week break at the ntbtbntbntbb rfrntbtfrnnftftrfnbrttttfft r heightened issues with stress and anxiety. Thats something that would be a concern with going to year-round school, strictly from an academic purposes, he said. Ted Roush, the Superintendent of Su wannee County (Fla.) Schools, said there are pluses and minuses to every type of school calendar. In the perfect world students would be in school more days per year and we would operate on some type of modied year round calendar, Roush said. ntbtt tb ftn trfnrnfn btrtttfbtr ffffnf SEE SCHOOLS, PAGE 11B

NOVEMBER 7 & 8, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 11B State & Region rf end of each nine-week grading period and a six-week summer vacation, Thomas County School System Superintendent Dr. Lisa Williams said. The reasoning behind the balanced calendar was that students who needed additional instruction could attend a one-week intercession during the breaks between grading periods to catch up with their peers rather than lagging behind for an entire year and having to catch up for an entire year during summer school. It was also thought that the shorter summer vacation would allow less time for the academic regression that normally takes place during summer months and that the more frequent breaks would help keep both students and teachers ener gized. Ultimately, the system decided to stay with a more traditional calendar, even though the start of the school year has eased forward with a start closer to the be ginning of August, creating a shorter sum mer vacation and more frequent breaks during the school year. The calendar, as it has evolved with a summer break of about two months and more breaks, seems to be a reasonable balance, Williams said. The two-month summer break affords school systems time to perform mainte nance on its facilities, gives teachers time to continue their education by taking grad uate classes or through participation in other professional learning opportunities and students the opportunities to take va cations with their families, have summer jobs and participate in camps and other enrichment programs, she said. Tift County Schools Chief Communica tions Ofcer Stacey Beckham said teach ers use summers for national or state-level conferences and activities. In a nutshell, teachers need time off, Atwater said. At what cost? The cost to operate the school varies based on whether it is occupied or va cant, Taylor said of Lowndes County schools. The number of days students attend should remain constant. Cason disagrees, saying there might be an increase in expenses, but adds the Valdosta system hasnt researched it. Continued From Page 10B teachers get 12 checks, even though their contracts say 10 months. Were still maintaining our lawns, so we dont really see a signicant decrease in the summer in expenses because were still maintaining our schools and getting pre pared for August. DePratter agrees with Cason. She said the Suwannee County schools still have most of the same costs during the summer as the normal school year. The only difference would be in increased transportation costs as well as hygiene products if there was a move to a yearround calendar. Salaries and benets would need to be analyzed to determine if the contract lengths remained the same or are extend ed, as well as whether or not additional instructional staff would be needed, she added. Both DePratter and Roush also point ed out that the summer vacation allows necessary time for facilities maintenance and improvements. Summer vacation is an extremely busy time for school districts that the general public doesnt see because they dont see school buses on the roads, Roush said. In many ways when stu dents come back it slows down a little. I would say that it is just neces sary to keep things repaired and running for the next school year. Atwater said the 240-day scenario is unlikely unless the state pumps a lot more money into the school system. They just last year pumped enough into 180 days of instruction for school systems to consider bringing all their teaching staff back to what we were eight or 10 years ago, he said. Providing enough payroll to add more days to the calendar would amount to millions of dollars, Atwater said. He said adding enrichment days would depend on charter system funds. Because of the high costs involved in adding work days to the calendar, most school calendar discussions have focused on how to divide the 180 days that students attend school, Williams said. There has been very little discus sion about adding days to the school year. While there is some meaningful discussion about academic regression that occurs during long summer breaks, it seems unlikely that the way the school days are divided would have signicant impact on student achievement. Any meaningful discussion about changing the calendar to impact student achievement should include adding days of instruction, at least for those students who need additional time to meet state standards. Dr. Laine Reichert, Thomasville City School System superintendent, said high er-education facilities probably would disagree with a move to year-round schooling. Any system has the ability to set their calendar without approval needed from the state or federal government, she said. There will likely be legislation during the next session concerning the school calendar as there is currently a study committee on school calendars. The school calendar in Georgia con sists of 180 school days, less in districts like ours that have waived school calen dar. If you tried to shorten the summer vacation, the days would have to come from other times during the year, thus lengthening the holidays then, she added. In the South, summer months are the hottest, and buildings would require addi tional cooling, resulting in additional op erating expenses, Reichert said. It would be difcult to gauge summer operating costs, but they would increase, she said. In addition to Eve Copeland, SunLight Team reporters Jessie R. Box, Katelyn Umholtz, Charles Oliver and Patti Dozier contributed to this report. ntbtbntb bntbb rrr fnrrr tbrbtr rbrr The months of June and July are the months were off, so youre going to have some decreases because kids are not in school, he said.

As adults age, both their minds and bodies undergo changes. e changes associated with aging are not uniform. Some people may experience small changes as they inch toward and ultimately pass retirement age, while others may undergo changes that aect nearly every aspect of their lives. Cognitive decline is the type of age-related change that can have a dramatic impact on a persons life, aecting his or her ability to live independently. A general term used to describe symptoms associated with a decline in memory or thinking skills such as judgment and reasoning, dementia is oen mistaken as a normal part of aging. However, the Alzheimers Foundation of America notes that dementia-related illnesses, including Alzheimers disease, are not a normal part of aging. Because many people associate memory loss with aging, they may be compelled to accept some of the early signs and symptoms of Alzheimers as mere byproducts of growing older. However, the Alzheimers Association urges men and women to report any of these 10 early signs and symptoms of Alzheimers to their physicians the moment theyre noticed. Family members who notice these signs in their relatives also should report them to their loved ones physicians. 1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life: Examples of this symptom include forgetting recently learned information; forgetting important dates and events; and asking for the same information over and over. 2. Challenges in planning or solving problems: Someone exhibiting this symptom may have trouble following a recipe or paying monthly bills. 3. Diculty completing familiar tasks at home at work or at leisure: Forgetting the rules of a favorite game or experiencing trouble driving to a familiar location are some examples of this symptom. 4. Confusion with time or place: People with Alzheimers lose track of dates, seasons and the passage of time. 5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships: Some people with Alzheimers have diculty reading, judging distance and determining color or contrast. 6. New problems with words in speaking or writing: Diculty joining or continuing a conversation and calling things by the wrong name are some examples of this symptom. 7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps: People with Alzheimers sometimes put things in unusual places and then cannot retrace their steps to nd those things. 8. Decreased or poor judgment: Poor judgment and decision-making oen aects people with Alzheimers. 9. Withdrawal from work or social activities: People with this symptom may begin to withdraw from favorite activities or avoid being social because of the changes theyre experiencing. 10. Changes in mood and personality: Mood changes aect people with Alzheimers, who may become confused, suspicious, depressed, fearful, or anxious.
