The child was kidnapped from Gibson Trailer Park on April 17, 2016, between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. and dropped off in Jacksonville between 5-7 a.m. on April 18, 2016. Hayling was arrested out of state in February 2018 for an unrelated Jackson ville capital sexual battery case. FDLE agents obtained a search warrant for his DNA after noticing similarities between the Madison kidnapper and Hayling. After nearly two years, it gives me re lief to tell you that we know who the kid napper is and that this dangerous predator is no longer a threat to our community, said FDLE Special Agent in Charge Mark Perez. Observant investigators with unwavering dedication along with DNA helped solve this case. Madison Police Chief Reggie Alexan der added: Madison Police Department ofcers and investigators worked tireless ly on this case. I appreciate the hard work of investigators who were determined to nd this child predator. Hayling remains in the Duval County Jail at the Jacksonville Sheriffs Ofce Pre-Trial Detention Facility and has been charged for the Madison kidnapping. Following the 2016 abduction, investi gators and analysts from FDLE, Madison PD, FBI and Madison County SO viewed hundreds of hours of video from homes and businesses, processed dozens of cit izen calls from a tip line and distributed yers throughout Florida and southern Georgia in working to solve this case. This case reects the relentless efforts of the FBI and our local, state and federal law enforcement partners to identify those who prey on our children, said Special Agent James VanPelt of the FBIs Jack sonville Division. I am hopeful that the people of Madison County, Jacksonville and everywhere in between can breathe a little easier tonight knowing that Jason Lenard Hayling is no longer an unknown threat to our communities. Said Madison County Sheriff Ben Stewart: As the Sheriff of Madison County, I am always impressed with the depth and perseverance of all our local and state ofcers as they continue to pur sue these predators and protect our com munities. This case is an example of a job well done. If anyone has information regarding the case or Hayling, they may contact FDLE at 800-226-5630. FDLE announces charges in Madison kidnapping case JASPER The Florida Department of Healths Tobacco Free Florida program and Hamilton County Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Coalition launched a new initiative during the annual Tobacco Free Florida Week from April 2-8. The theme, Achieving Health Equity, raised awareness of tobacco-re lated health disparities throughout the state. The Hamilton County High Schools Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) group cleaned the Jasper City Park on April 3 and they talked to those using the park about health equi ty and tobacco dangers. More than 2.5 million adults in Florida are current cigarette smokers. In Ham ilton County, 27.2 percent of adults are current are current cigarette smokers, which is higher than the statewide average of 15.5 percent. The health burden of tobacco use remains especially high among ra cial and ethnic minorities, low-income individuals, the LGBT community and those with mental health conditions.Signicant prog ress has been made in low ering tobacco use, but ad dressing theses dispropor tionately affected groups still using tobacco at higher rates is a top priority. For years, tobacco com panies have spent billions of dollars each year to market their products that appeal to more vulnerable and less fortunate popula tions. Smoking remains the leading cause of prevent able death in Florida and the United States. Health communications, commu nity and cessation interven tions and youth prevention efforts are still needed to discourage tobacco use ini tiation and counter social norms among subpopu lations affected by tobac co-related disparities. Residents in Hamilton can access Tobacco Free Floridas Quit Your Way program for free tools and services to help them quit. More than 188,000 Florid ians have successfully quit tobacco using one of these free services. For more information, please visit tobaccofreeorida.com/ quityourway.

APRIL 11-12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 3A everyone will like every class and when you dont like to do something, you wont do it. Plain and simple. The same thing applies to nutrition. If you constantly feel deprived, you are not likely to stick with that particular program. Find a program that not only fits YOUR lifestyle but is also easy to follow. And you know what? Keep trying until you find the one that works for you. When you find it, you will know because it will sim ply make sense to you. Remember you CAN reach any goals you set for yourself. Make it happen. Have a great week! To your health, Denise Denise Sanger is a certified fit ness instructor, Silver Sneakers In structor, AMPD Kettlebell Instruc tor, licensed Zumba, STRONG by Zumba instructor, gentle flow yoga, teaches morning classes at Country Strong Health & Fitness. Denise may be reached at Denis eSanger.com, 386/292-6105 or denisesanger@gmail.com. Healthy Living Healthy Living: Does it work for YOU? Ever notice how you are bom barded constantly with advertise ments and commercials for weight loss? The number of ads you see on TV or read in a magazine on a daily basis is mind-boggling. I have a real problem with those advertisements and you should too. The copywriters for these com mercials are good. They are very good. They tell you whatever you want to hear and they make it sound like losing weight is quite simple. You and I both know its not simple at all. Our bodies change and we need to change with them. Our body at 60 is not the same as it was at 25. Why do we always buy into those adver tisements and commercials? The health industry is a multi-billion dollar industry with one goal to get you to buy their products. These products range from supple ments to equipment to weight loss programs. Do they work? They probably will for at least the short-term and anything that helps you move in the right direction is a good thing. But what happens after 2 or 3 weeks when you have not made the lifestyle changes along with following the program? Chances are you will stop and that program will end up with all the rest either sitting on a shelf or tossed in the trash. Right there is where you need to pause and focus. Finding the pro gram that works for YOU. Healthy living is SO much more than cut ting calories. Its about the whole picture including exercise for the body along with mindset. If your thoughts are not where they need to be, chances are your actions will not be either. You have read it in this column before and I know you will read it again because its something Im very passionate about. ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL. Dont be lieve me? Think about that person you know that can eat crap every day yet never gain weight. If I were to do that, you can bet your last dollar my scale will show an uptick immediately. Why? I am not that person nor do I have that persons metabolism. Even if weight loss is not on your list of things you want to do, it is important to not only find a program that works for you but that you will also be able to stay with. For example, exercise. The gentle flow yoga I teach three days a week at the gym is one of my most popular classes. Is it for everyone? No. There are many that would find the class too slow. That is why there are so many different fitness classes for you to try. Not Editors note: The Jasper News prints the entire ar rest record.

Those springs represent signicant historical, economic, environmental and recreational value to local com munities and Florida. The Suwannee River Water Management District is celebrating April as Springs Protec tion Awareness Month to bring atten tion to these unique natural wonders. Our springs are the literal life blood of our communities, and they face some major challenges, said Hugh Thomas, executive director for the district. This outreach effort showcases the powerful role we all play in the protection and stewardship of our resources. Thank you, Gover nor Scott and DEP, for continuing to promote these natural wonders and preserving a centuries-old way of life we are proud to stand along side you. The SRWMD is home to 21 of states 33 rst-magnitude springs, which discharge at least 65 million gallons of water per day. Springs are natural windows into the aquifer and reect groundwater conditions, which serves as the primary source of drink ing water in Florida. Springs Protection Awareness Month kicks off a three-month out reach initiative by the state and local water management districts to bring attention and awareness to one of Floridas most critical ecosystems and what is being done to protect them. The state of Florida is renowned for its work in water quality assess ments and restoration programs. In fact, since the inception of the springs funding in 2013, more than $75 million has been spent on SRW MD projects. These projects provide almost 20 million gallons per day in water savings, reduced more than 2 million pounds of nitrogen leeched to the aquifer and created almost 7,200 acres of wetlands. We all have a role in ensuring the livelihood of our springs, said Thomas. Its not just one person or one agencys job. We all need to be a part of the solution. People may participate in the effort by visiting mysuwanneeriver.com/ mysprings and myhomemysprings. org and sharing their springs story on Facebook, Youtube, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #mysprings. The mission of the SRWMD is to protect and manage water resources using science-based solutions to sup port 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 SRWMD serves 15 surrounding north-central Florida counties.

According to Attorney General Pam Bondis Medicaid Fraud Con trol Unit and the Suwannee Coun ty Sheriffs Office, Jared Austin Combee, 31, allegedly falsified timesheets for services he never performed. The MFCU investigation re vealed the suspect falsified prog ress notes to his employer, Build ing Dreams, for services not ren dered and left two disabled adults without care, supervision and services that the physician ordered. From the falsified progress notes, the suspect received more than $2,000 and defrauded Medic aid out of more than $4,000. The suspects claimed service dates and times for the disabled adults directly conflicted with the times he worked at Advanced Auto Parts, his second job. Combee faces one count of or ganized fraud and two counts of criminal use of personal identification information of a disabled adult, all third-degree felonies. The State At torneys Office for the Third Judicial Circuit will prosecute this case. tbnf r Questions?

LHS grad Powe named to All-Florida Academic Team MADISON North Florida Community College student Monica Powe, and Lafayette High alum, was named to the 2018 Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) All-Florida Academic Team and honored among the most outstanding students in the Florida Col lege System at an awards ceremony in Tampa on Friday. Powe received recog nition and a medallion for her outstanding academic achievement, leadership and service to the community. She was among 133 Florida College System students and a total of 141 students from across the state named to the All-Florida Academic Team. The ceremony was beau tiful and elegant, Powe said in a release. I had the op portunity to meet the Chan cellor of The College Florida System (Madeline Pumarie ga) and several other team members. It was amazing to know that I was selected to be rewarded for my aca demic success and represent my college (NFCC) with 141 other students around Florida. After the ceremony, a University of South Florida tour was provided. The tour solidied my choice of trans ferring to USF after nishing the RN program at NFCC. I am so blessed to be able to have this experience and meet so many people. Powe began her journey at NFCC as a high school dual enrollment student attend ing Lafayette High School, where she was named the Honor Student last May. She completed more than half of her Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree credits while in high school, completed her A.A. degree in December 2017, and is now enrolled in the Associate in Science in Registered Nursing program at NFCC expecting to gradu ate in the spring of 2019. After graduating high school, I decided to stay at NFCC to complete my A.A. to save time and money, Powe added in the release. I later chose to apply to NF CCs RN program because it is local, affordable, and I was familiar with the campus and several staff members. Powe plans to continue her education and move up the nursing career ladder. I want to transfer to the University of South Florida to complete my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) as well as my Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), she said. There are several MSN specialties, but I will earn my Certied Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). Powe says NFCC has made a tremendous contribu tion to her education thus far. As I grew up, I knew I wanted to pursue a career where I would be able to positively impact a person and their life, Powe added. Without NFCC and its staff, I would be nowhere near reaching the current mile stones that I am pursuing. Powe is Vice President of NFCCs Phi Theta Kappa Mu-Xi Chapter and has been a PTK NFCCs Fall Term 2017. NFCC is proud to recognize Powe as an outstanding student along with PTK and the Florida College System. Monica is among our most intuitive students, said Julie Walden, NFCC Nursing Instructor. She is an outstanding student and is exceptional in the class room and in our on-the-job student clinicals. She is the full package and is destined to be an amazing nurse. Powe credits her parents for instilling in her a strong work ethic and determina tion. I believe that the strong work ethic that was instilled in me at an early age by my parents is what I owe my success to, Powe said. I have been taught that you have to work hard for the things you want because, if they are worth it, they will not come easy. I have stood by that logic so far and will continue to do so to fulll my hopes and dreams. bnftrbrnnrrbn rfrrbfrrbnrnf n

SEE SUPERHERO, PAGE 7A It had been far too long since I have spent some quality time in Madison, so when I saw the advertisement for the Reunion Farmers Market in Mad ison this past Sunday I decided to go. Madison is a special place for me since I did my student teaching at Madison County High School, and I met my wife while working at Camp Cherry Lake. I have caught many bass on that lake, and the rst rearm in my col lection was purchased from a sporting goods store in downtown Madison. The farmers market was held on the grounds of the historical Smith Mansion. I have driven past this mansion many times; it was nice to nally get to go in side and spend an afternoon on the grounds. After signing in, I was given a free rafe ticket and a ticket that could be redeemed for one food item. I arrived near the mid-point of the advertised times for the event, and there mere many people in attendance. My rst stop was at the Deep Roots Meat table. They raise grass-forage beef in Madison County and had some samples of their tasty meat products. Next to them was Tracys Sweet Treats, who are also from Madison. I heard several people say how delicious the baked goods from Tracys were. Next to her was my friend, and Live Oak resident, Eric Low. He was selling his raw honey, beeswax, and candles. I have tasted his delicious honey before, but this time he had a variety I had not tasted before. It is amazing how different the honey tastes accord ing to the type of plant the bees were working. You can learn more about exactly how the honey is made or order some to taste by visiting www.basichoney.com. The house doors were open, so I took a slow stroll trough the mansion. It was amazing to see the antique furniture and antique chandeliers inside. There were wood oors through out and it reminded me of some rooms in the Biltmore Man sion in North Carolina. There was also beautiful art on the walls and some intricate area rugs in some of the rooms. Af ter my brief tour, I continued my way around the grounds. I spent a while looking at the many types of soaps, plants, and tea for sale by Dixie Dreams Farms from Georgia. After that, I talked with someone from the Bumpy Road Farm in Leon County. They were selling some of their locally grown, pesticide-free, organic grits and corn meal. I ended up using my free food item ticket to get a meat and vegetable kebob from Fifth Generation Farms. Fifth Generation Farms has a store located on U.S. Highway 90 in Lake City. They partner with other local farmers to pro vide a wide variety of locally-grown foods and products. I also had a chance to learn about how Crooked Row Farm from Madison raises their poultry without antibiotics or hormones. The common thread was how it is better for the environment and better for you when food is grown sustain ably and humanely. That is how Schmoe Farm from Geor gia raises their poultry and pork. My last stop before the fried chicken demonstration by Art Smith was at the table set up by the Panacea Oyster Co-op. Eating a fresh shucked oyster under the shade of a grand-daddy oak tree beside a stately mansion is a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon. If you want to try one of their delicious oysters you can pick them up at their store. I would suggest calling 850-378-1000 before making the drive to make sure they are open and not sold out. The fried chicken cooking demo took place inside the kitchen that is adjacent to the main house. I did not try and work my way inside. I always grill or bake my chicken, but I do enjoy fried chicken from time to time. I was lucky enough to taste one of the wings that were fried using Art Smiths recipe and procedure. I am not sure if it was the fresh, free-range chicken or the magic that has made Art Smith a celebrity chef, but that was the best fried chicken I have ever put in my mouth. The event was a huge success, and it was great to be back in Madison. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school ed ucator. He is an independent contractor.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Getting reunited with Madison Its often thought to be beyond question that black political power is necessary for economic power and enhanced socio-economic welfare. Thats an idea that lends itself to test ing and analysis. Between 1970 and 2012, the num ber of black elected ofcials rose from fewer than 1,500 to more than 10,000. Plus, a black man was elected to the presidency twice. Jason Riley, a fel low at the Manhattan Institute, tells how this surge in political power has had little benecial impact on the black community. In a PragerU video, Blacks in Power Dont Empower Blacks (http://tinyurl.com/y84psoyt), Riley says the con ventional wisdom was based on the notion that only black politicians could understand and address the challenges fac ing blacks. Therefore, electing more black city councilors, mayors, representatives and senators was deemed critical. Even some liberal social scientists now disagree. Gary Oreld says, There may be little relationship between the success of ... black leaders and the opportunities of typical black families. Riley says that while many black politicians achieved considerable personal success, many of their con stituents did not. After the 2014 Ferguson, Missouri, riots, which followed the killing of Michael Brown after he charged a policeman, much was made of the small number of blacks on the citys police force. Riley asks: If the racial composition of the police force is so important, how does one explain the Bal timore riots the following year after Freddie Gray died in police custody? Baltimores police force is 40 percent black. Its police commissioner is black. Its mayor is black, as is the majority of the City Council. What can be said of black po litical power in Baltimore can also be said of Cleveland, De troit, Philadelphia, Washington, Atlanta and New Orleans. In these cities, blacks have been mayors, police chiefs, city councilors and superintendents of schools for decades. By contrast, when blacks had little political power, they made signicant economic progress. During the 1940s and s, black labor force participation rates exceeded those of whites; black incomes grew much faster than white incomes. Between 1940 and 1950, black poverty rates fell by as much as 40 percent. Between 1940 and 1970, the number of blacks in middle-class professions quadrupled. Keep in mind that was before afrmative action programs. Riley says that racial gaps were narrowing without any special treatment for blacks. After the 1960s, the government began pouring trillions of dollars into various social programs. These pro grams discouraged marriage and also undermined the work ethic through open-ended welfare programs, helping keep poor people poor. The fact that political success is not a requirement for socio-economic success and indeed may have an oppo site effect doesnt apply only to blacks. American Jews, Italians, Germans, Japanese and Chinese attained economic power long before they had political power. By almost any measure of socio-economic success, Japanese and Chinese are at or near the top. Riley asks, How many prominent Asian politicians can you name? By contrast, Irish-Ameri cans have long held signicant political power yet were the slowest-rising of all immigrant groups. Riley says that the black experience in the U.S. has been very different from that of other racial groups. Blacks were enslaved. After emancipation, they faced legal and extralegal discrimination and oppression. But none of those difculties undermines the proposition that human capital, in the forms of skills and education, is far more important than political capital. Riley adds that the formula for prosperity is the same across the human spectrum. Traditional values such as marriage, stable families, education and hard work are immeasurably more important than the color of your mayor, police chief, representatives, senators and president. As Riley argues in his new book False Black Pow er? the major barrier to black progress today is not racial discrimination. The challenge for blacks is to better position themselves to take advantage of existing opportunities, and that involves addressing the anti-social, self-defeating behav iors and habits and attitudes endemic to the black underclass.

The springs, the sun and those three little words: Mom (or dad, grand ma, etc.), Im bored! Aye, aye, aye. Fall cant come soon enough. But what if I told you theres a way to stop the boredom, provide great child care, and help ght the sum mer slide all at once? Put on your cape and get ready youre about to become your childs hero. Summer camps, especially overnight summer camps, can do all of these things. In fact, they can do all these things well, and they can create memories your camper will never forget. I know parents may have reservations about resident camp: it costs too much, its too hard to send him away, and its just not for your daugh ter. Ive heard it all before. But research shows (and experts agree) that overnight summer camp can have incredible benets for your child. Campers love the kayaks, games and camp songs, but behind all that, camps do things parents love, too: they offer opportunities to set goals and to try new things, they encourage all campers to be themselves, and they nurture important soft skills campers can use later in life. Cabin life alone offers invaluable opportuni ties. Campers live with other children their age who might be different than the people theyre used to. Cabinmates may not always get along, but cabin counselors are there to help them work through problems, building communica tion and conict resolution skills campers can use in their everyday lives. Camp is the rst place many children leave their parents behind. While at camp, children make choices on their own, and they get to see how those choices play out without having parents looking over their shoulders. Choosing whether to go to archery or the pool may sound easy, but it may also be a campers rst real taste of independent decision making and dis covering her own interests.

Resident camps hire silly (but pro fessional) counselors who show campers what being yourself is all about. And those counselors encour age campers to do the same! Whether its cre ating a crazy yet original skit for the talent show or just standing up to tell a joke, campers are con stantly supported. Speaking of support, those same counselors are there to offer support when children fail something experts agree children need to do to grow. Learning from fail ure creates grit, and camp offers countless healthy risks campers can try and plenty of support if it doesnt work out. The best part of all of this? Your child will just think its fun. Your son wont come home brag ging about his indepen dence, and your daughter wont excitedly tell you about all her new rela tionship-building skills.

Continued From Page 6A Superhero 68401-1 Around the Banks The Good Earth around the Suwannee Valley The nocturnal song of the whippoor will near my home at the Eight Mile Still sent a clear, clarion call not too many nights ago that, while individual snaps of cool weather may come, the danger of frost was over. Unlike many who have voluntarily transplanted themselves here in the sandy soil of our north central Florida, I look for natures age-old signs, the budding of the old-fashioned seedling pecan trees, the budding of wild grape vines, and when I see them bud out, I will grab my packets of seeds and my hoe and go at it with the bit of garden ing I do around my house. I am thankful for those who have transplanted them selves here, as I am for those whose roots run deep in the soil of this area. Each one offers something which can be as joyful as the pageantry of wildower bloom and as anticipated as the fragrance of freshly turned earth, and the glory of watching plants grow, mature, and produce; ower and fruit or both. Each one, the new and those who are established, should be carefully lis tened to for a possible and more than likely, a probable learning experience. In todays article, I am going to fea ture, what I consider to be, one group of contributors new to our area and one with roots deep in the soil of our home. Fairly new to our area, and, yet, with their warmth and love for growing things, these folks from Italy exude a warmth and gracious hospitality that is decidedly Southern and this is: Cultiva Farms located in northern Hamil ton County, above the Alapaha, which is busily growing spinach, lettuce, and other organically grown crops that add to the agricultural value of our area, and they are doing it utilizing the newest of farm ing methods. We see this project as an exciting opportunity not only for our company but for agriculture and Hamilton County overall, Federico Boscolo, President of Cultiva Farms USA, said in a recent release. Bringing new agricultural tech niques to the east coast of the United States has the potential to dramatically increase production while creating local job opportunities. We are thrilled with our progress and thankful for the commu nitys continued support of our business. Cultiva Farms is the rst company producing baby leaf in high tunnels (not hydroponic or vertical farming) and, at the moment, it is also the largest one. The farm includes 800 tunnels (hoop houses), providing 125 acres of covered area to produce conventional spinach and arugula year-round and provide a buffer for adverse climate conditions. In addition, later this month, Cultiva plans to have in production an additional 80 greenhouses to test organic produc tions; the aim is to have approximately 600 more tunnels which are 100 percent organic. For Cultiva, it would create a true pro duction and logistics hub in the center of the American Southeast. In Florida, Cul tiva can produce non-stop from October to June, when the already too high tem peratures would not allow any other type of production. From Italy to the United States, Cultiva Farms is a transplanted contributor to our home.

In celebration of Nation al Agriculture Day, fourthgrade students from Hamil ton Elementary School and Corinth Christian Academy participated in Youth Ag Day on March 8 at the Hamilton County Arena. This event was coordinated by Greg Hicks, Extension Director of UF/IFAS Ex tension Hamilton County, in cooperation with Philip Pinello, assistant superin tendent of Hamilton Coun ty School District. Approximately 130 youth were bused from their respective schools to the arena where they were divided into groups and rotated through 10 stations by group leaders, to learn about Hamilton County agriculture. At each station was a knowledgeable volunteer who talked about the com modity located at their sta tion. The stations included Small Animal Production with HCHS Agriculture Students; Dairy/Beef Pro duction, cattle producer Rick Young; Nutrition/ Healthy Snacks, Deborah Tannenbaum, Executive Director of Florida Peanut Federation; Peanut Pro duction, Keith Wynn, UF/ IFAS Extension Agricul ture Agent; Swine Produc tion, Clevie Selph, of Selph Farms and Greg Harden, Florida Farm Bureau; Old Farm Tools, Dean Franklin; Corn Production, Seth Adams; Bee Keeper, Thomas Honey; Forestry, Greg Staten, the County rfntf btbff nbb bbnf fftfbn f btb f bt Forester; and Hydroponics, Doug Clayton, HCHS agri culture teacher.

APRIL 11-12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A 68404-1 68402-1 Life in White Springs Good Fences Make Good Neigh bors. Were doing some fence work at our house this week, mostly repairs that are the result of old age and some damage by termites and woodpeckers that seemingly have an afnity for pressure treated lumber. When we built the fence 20 years ago, we didnt do it to keep people out, but rather to keep our dogs in, only to discover that they were expert diggers! We also did it to dene our backyard space and to gain a little bit of privacy when needed. In the interest of being neighborly, our gates are never locked, and we are building a window-like opening in the fence be tween our yard and our neighbors, with shutters that can be opened for conver sations or for passing treats at any time. Our fence doesnt limit our connection to community, it just denes it. The same thing can be said of city limits and county lines. They dont keep you in or out, they just let you know where you are and where youre going. Sometimes there is plenty to do at home, and sometimes, on the other side of the fence, its more fun to visit your neighbors. On occasion the choices for entertainment and activity are so abundant both at home and elsewhere, we have to ask ourselves the question, Should I Stay of Should I Go? This week Ill give you some area happen ings for your decision making consid eration. Now, since this is Life in White Springs, heres a good reason for White Springs folks to stay or for the rest of you to go visit us in the near future. In White Springs there will be a Native Plant Workshop at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park on Saturday, April 21, from 1-2 p.m. Youll be able to discover the benets of using native plants for landscaping and youll be introduced to a few of the exotic invasive plants that threaten our natural areas. This program is free with park admission. For more Information call Teri Graves-McKinstry, Park Spe cialist, at 386-397-2733. Speaking of Stephen Foster Park, I visited the Old Time Tractor and Engine show last weekend and was very fortu nate to get a guided tour by Gary Erixton of the two large scale model scenes he built, one representing a modern logging fa cility, and the other of a turpentine still and camp modeled after the late 1800s and early 1900s style camps that were abundant in this area. The models were very impressive, with so much attention to detail that Gary probably has a thou sand hours invested in them. Even more impressive was his encyclopedic knowl edge of the operations that the models depict. Being curious, I asked a lot of questions and Gary answered every one as if he had been there at the turpentine still at the turn of the 20th century. The next time these models will be on pub lic display Ill be sure to let you know so that you can see for yourself, and perhaps youll get to meet one of White Springs best treasures, Gary Erixton! Or you might be tempted to go. Sheldon Cooper and his friends on The Big Bang Theory would gladly travel to Lake City this weekend to take in the event Innity Con which is now in its fth year. Its a spinoff of Comic Con, which began in 1970 when a group of comics, movie and science ction fans banded together to put on the rst comic book convention in southern California. Now you dont have to go to California to pursue your passion for super heroes and science ction otherworldliness, you can go to Innity Con in Lake City instead. This year, their events will be focused on gaming areas, our Kids Con, a panel room, and an outdoor main events stage. The Game Zone Truck is a mobile gaming trailer which has 7 HD screens and video games. There is an Arcade with pinball and classic arcade video games, and an area set up for Ta bletop games. The Kids Con area will have Superhero Storytime, Lego Bat man Nerf Shootout, with Harry Potter Sorting Hat Ceremonies on Saturday, and Princess Tea Parties on Sunday. On the Main Event Stage there will be entertainment such as a Cosplay (cos tume) contest and several performances like Geekappella singing group, Noise Complaint dancers, The Last Council Saber Academy, and the CosPoi Anime acrobatics group. Three dozen vendors and artists will be selling and show casing everything from comic books to collectibles. For the adults in the crowd there will be a Muggles and Magic Party at Halpatter Brewery, a Harry Potter themed party on Saturday night with door prizes, games, and dancing. Reasonably priced tickets, just Google Innity Con. While in Lake City you might be tempted to visit the Lake DeSoto Farm ers Market which is not directly on Lake DeSoto, but nearby on the corner of Marion Avenue and Highway 90 in Downtown Lake City. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. you will nd vegetables, dairy products (cheese, milk and yogurt), eggs and baked goods. The foods found at the Market are LOCAL! Small farmers/ gardeners are growing these vegetables in their own backyards. In most cases, it is grown as nature intended, with no pesticides or chemical fertilizers. I love playing horseshoes and in re cent years have begun to enjoy a similar game where you throw small corn lled pouches at a board with a hole in it, re sulting in the name of the game, Corn hole. Over in Live Oak the Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative is hosting the rst annual Suwannee Valley Open Cornhole Tournament for players of all skill levels. All proceeds will go to United Way of Suwannee Valley. This tournament will take place on Satur day, April 14, at the Suwannee Valley Electric Cooperative, 11340 100th St. in Live Oak. Warm-ups begin at 11 a.m., games start at noon. The cost for a two-person team is $40. Individuals can sign up for $20 and be paired with a partner on the day of the tournament. Sign-up online using a credit card, or sign up with cash or check at SVECs ofce in Live Oak, or at United Ways ofce at 871 SW State Road 47, Lake City. Wouldnt it be a shame if you showed up to vote and the polling place was gone?!! That will probably happen to a few folks at the White Springs Election for Town Council on Tuesday, April 24. The old polling place on U.S. 41 near the Baily Ogburn Sport complex is closed, even though there is still a Vote sign outside the building as of this writing. Im not going to tell you who to vote for, but I will tell you where to vote! The new voting place is the White Springs Library. Go there on Tuesday, April 24, and exercise your right to vote. Its a right that others have fought and died for. Honor their sacrice. Be a good citizen. Go to the White Springs Library and Vote! Life in White Springs wishes to extend condolences and our deepest sympathy to our Branford neighbors and especially to the family and friends of Kourtney Lambert. Words are in adequate at a time of loss like this but please know that we are your North Florida neighbors, we are truly very sorry for your loss, and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Through good times and bad, Im always glad to hear about goings on in the community and will be glad to share anything appropriate for this column. Email is the best way to contact me, but any way is welcome. I am thankful that we truly are all connected, and I hope that we can continue to feel proud of who we are and where were headed, and that we all appreciate that White Springs and its surrounding region is a very special place, to be honored and protected. As always, I look forward to seeing you out and about, enjoying your community and your life in White Springs or wherever you may be.

According to a National Weather Service local storm report, Hamilton County Emergency Man agement reported one fatality and four injuries from a lightning strike around 2:50 p.m. Saturday at a mud bog event near White Springs. Hamilton County Sheriff Harrell Reid said Kourtney Lambert, 23, and four others were beneath the gooseneck portion of a travel trailer when those at the Woodpecker Mud Bog scrambled for shelter from a downpour.

Reid said nobody else was injured, although one other person complained of numbness in his hand. fntr bbnb venture into higher educa tion. Riley said the coalition on adult education in the National House of State Directors have launched a national campaign for adult education. Educate and elevate adult education, an in vestment in Americas future, Riley said. This campaign is helping more than 55,000 adult educa tion leaders come together to help achieve the same goals. Those goals are edu cating and elevating the students, which in turn will help businesses hire qualied individuals and stimulate economic growth throughout the country. Most federal programs have experienced budget cuts and adult education is currently budgeted at $582 million. That is $67 million less than what was originally authorized in 2014 under the Workforce Investment Act (WIOA). WIOA helps job seek ers access employment, education, training and support services to suc ceed in the labor market. It matches employers with skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. Under WIOA, adult education is now a key element in the compre hensive system of educa tion and training. For the adult education program there has been a decline in enrollment and has now started a $30 tuition fee not including the testing fees per semester. The Lafayette Adult Education class serves approximately 20 students each year and is offered Monday and Tuesday from 4-9 p.m. and can come and go at any time during those ve hours to receive GED Preparation, GED Testing, job placement and career planning. Students take a test in the beginning to see their placement and what skills they need to work on. There are four subjects math, reading, social studies and science of fered. Students can start with one subject and work at their pace to complete the class and take the test. As student completes their GED once each of the four subjects tests have been taken. We have some students who have taken a semester to pass the GED, while others have taken longer, Riley said. It depends on the situation of the individual. Each student has a story and this helps to transition to the next chapter. Continued From Page 1A Riley The commissioners ad opted the resolution to rec ognize the second Monday in April as National Line man Appreciation Day. According to the reso lution, the day is to recog nize electric linemen, who approach their job with a sense of responsibility to their community and are often the rst on the scene when severe storms and natural disasters strike making sure roads are safe and lights are on for other rescue personnel. The resolution further recognizes the linemen for working on top of power poles on thousand volts of electricity and working in hazardous conditions away from their families so they can build and maintain the systems that electric pow er to people across the country and where their jobs take courage and is essential to keeping our nation safe and working. The board also adopted May 9 as Child Welfare Professionals Recognition Day and adopted resolu tions for Patrician Oaks Boat Ramp. The countys resolution for the boat ramp was in support of an application for the Florida Boating improvement program funds to improve the ramp at Patrician Oaks Road. Continued From Page 1A County

Petitions filed by any persons other than those en titled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publica tion of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written no tice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may file a pe tition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be different from the posi tion taken by it in this notice.

In addition to requesting an admin istrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue mediation.

Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of the agreement. If me diation results in settlement of the ad ministrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial in terests that would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If medi ation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the ad ministrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposi tion of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that then will ap ply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under those two statutes.

APRIL 11-12, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 14A CNHI Travel Writers Walt Disney chose Florida for the biggest and baddest theme park this side of Saturn. First, the Magic Kingdom, then Ep cot, followed by a water park, an animal park and more. The Magic Kingdom alone attracts more than 20 million visitors a year. There was a time when Sunshine State attractions werent so huge, so crowded and so expensive. You could stop at a Florida roadside attraction, ride in a glass-bottom boat, gaze in wonder as mermaids cavorted underwater or watch a macho guy wrestle an alligator. Advance ticket purchases were unnec essary and you didnt have to spend a weeks paycheck to get in the gate. Time marches on and many classic Florida attractions have passed into en tertainment heaven. The Black Hills Passion Play in Lake Wales closed in 1998. Once popular Cy press Gardens bit the dust in 2009. Tiki Gardens in Indian Rocks Beach is now a parking lot. Fortunately, some of the states clas sic attractions continue to welcome visitors. Most have evolved into something more or less than they once were, but they remain among the living and are often enjoyable, uncrowded and rela tively inexpensive. We departed South Georgia for a midMarch road trip through northern and central Florida to visit ve of the states classic attractions, several of which we had visited as children. We wanted to see what might have changed and gain a sense whether these tourist attractions retained their old magic. Our rst stop was the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. Founded in 1893 by a couple of enter prising fellows who collected local alli gators, this is one of the states oldest tourist attractions. The operation moved to its current location in 1920 and re mained fairly modest until new owners in 1937 began acquiring additional ani mals and birds. Exhibits have been added and expand ed through the years, and in 1989, the facility was accredited by the American Association of Zoos and Aquariums. We were surprised at the current scope of the park. Although alligators Classic Florida attractions continue to welcome tourists State & Region and crocodiles continue as the main at tractions, the park also has exotic birds and mammals. The zip line is also popular. A stop here is worth at least half a day. Next it was south on U.S. 27 to Cler monts Citrus Tower. Built for $150,000 in 1956, the 226-foot-tall tower is topped by a glass observation deck that once offered an ex pansive view of 17 million citrus trees. The facility included a large citrus packing operation where visitors could order shipments home. Major freezes in 1983, 1985 and 1989 decimated the regions citrus groves and todays visitors who ride an elevator to the observation deck view miles of resi dential developments. Still, the views are impressive. Citrus Tower was purchased in 1995 by Greg and Susan Horman who were mostly interested in the 12 acres of prime commercial property, but fell in love with the tower. The following morning we headed fur ther south on U.S. 27 to Lake Wales for a stop at Bok Tower. The 205-foot tower and surrounding Frederick Law Olmsted Jr.-designed gar dens were a gift to the people by Edward Bok, an editor and author who wintered rfnnrtbtbbnbrtnttnbbtnnrtbt tnbbbrnrttfr trtfrrftrtrfrfbrrftnfttttftbn nbfbbnbrtrbrfbfbfn rnrftntftrfrfbfbrntbb bt nttbbtbbrbbbfrtrfr trbfbnrtffrfrttfrfbbt fbf here. The beautiful 205-foot tower has a 60-bell carillon used for daily concerts. While the tower is the parks focal point, strolling through the gardens is one of the great pleasures of a visit. A 20-room Mediterranean-style mansion is open for tours. Bok Tower continues as one of Flori das greatest treasures. Next it was northwest to Weeki Wachee Springs, one of Floridas earliest and bestknown tourist stops. The facility had fallen into disrepair and was acquired in 2008 by the state of Flor ida. The mermaid show we attended, which must have been similar to one we viewed many decades ago, was quite enjoyable. The state park also includes a popular water park with four large water slides plus short boat tours on the Weeki Wachee River. Wildlife shows are also offered. The entrance fee of $13 per adult ($8 for children) covers everything and is one of the states great bargains. Our last stop was at Silver Springs near Ocala, an attraction that dates from the 1870s. The park is best-known for its glass-bot tom boat tours along the crystal-clear Silver River. For a time it was also a water park and animal park but that part of Silver Springs was discontinued when it became a state park in 2013. Glass-bottom boat tours are still popular with visitors who can also rent kayaks and paddleboards. The park has an impressive boardwalk with numerous chairs and benches scattered along the walkways. The glass-bottom boat tour ($11) was fun and the entrance fee of $2 is a steal. David and Kay Scott are authors of Complete Guide to the National Park Lodges (Globe Pequot).

According to the marketing experts at Brandon Gaille, the United States leads the world in caeine consumption, taking in around 970 tons every year. e majority of that caeine is consumed in the form of coee. Although too much caeine has been linked to increased anxiety, insomnia and restlessness, those cups of Joe actually may have positive health benets when enjoyed in moderation. e National Institutes of Health advises that, since coee beans are loaded with protective compounds, they can help deliver caeine in healthy ways. When consumed in coee, caeine may help prevent certain diseases. Caeine, which is a mild stimulant by nature, has been linked to lower risks of Alzheimers disease. e NIH also says caeine may lower a persons risk of developing Parkinsons disease and other dementias, while also boosting concentration and memory. e biologically active compounds in coee also can help prevent diseases like stroke and certain cancers. e research study, Adenosine, Adenosine Receptors and the Actions of Caeine, rst published in February 1995, states that caeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter called adenosine. When this occurs, the amount of other neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine and dopamine, can increase. is can improve the ring of neurons, leading to improvements in mood, memory, energy, and general cognitive function. For individuals looking to shed a little extra weight, caeine may help there, too. Several studies show that caeine can boost metabolic rate by three to 11 percent, according to Healthline. Coee, which boasts the vitamins B2, B5, B3, manganese, and potassium, delivers caeine and can be part of a nutritious diet and successful weight-management regimen. People prone to headaches and recurrent pain may nd caeine can help them manage those symptoms. Caeine is one of the main ingredients in some pain relievers. e University of Georgia also has found that a moderate dose of caeine (roughly that found in two cups of coee) can reduce post-workout pain by up to 48 percent. Whats more, e Journal of the American Medical Association notes that, when caeine is combined with other pain relievers, only 40 percent of the other drug was needed to provide the same level of ecacy. Coee and caeine provide various health benets and can be benecial when consumed in moderation. Anyone who wants to alter their caeine consumption should do so gradually to see how their body reacts to the changes.

Continued From Page 1B Bolles Sports There are no issues in the Bible like mine, responded a troubled young man in my ofce recently. I had asked the question, Tell me about your relation ship with God. He dgeted a bit and looked around the room trying to nd the right words. Then he blurted out: Its not that I dont believe. I do. But I just dont know how to undo so many mistakes. And I dont think there are any answers for me; there are no issues in the Bible like mine. It is a common misconception that because the Bible was written in a different century, generation, culture and environment, and that many of the words and phrases that define our lives today are not found in the Bible (i.e. computer, remote, internet, shared custody, chemotherapy, insurance you get the idea) that it no longer ap plies to our lives. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hebrews 4:12 says it this way: For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the divi sion of soul and of spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Being living and active means that a verse that spoke to you one year ago or 10 years ago can be read again in a current, different season of your life and give clarity and instruction specic to what you are facing right now. And it will be exactly tted to your situation. Piercing to the division of soul and spirit and joints and marrow, (which by the way, we all have, no matter the centu ry, generation or culture) means that it doesnt just address the surface, but the root causes of the issues. And since we are all human, created in the image of God, but born with a sin nature, the root causes of our issues are all common. So, back to my friend. I asked him to tell me speci cally what issues he couldnt nd in Scripture and he pointed out several heartbreaking fam ily struggles. After agreeing with him that there was no way to undo the conse quences he now lived with, I pointed him to the book of Genesis. The book of begin nings gives very specic attention to the family problems of those found early in the lineage of Christ. There was murder, rebellion, favoritism, deception, sibling rivalry, adultery, and polygamy, just to get the list started. Heres the deal: God used imperfect people. God still uses imperfect peo ple. With lots of issues. He is more in terested in our desire to know and trust Him with our life than He is a spot less resume. Because no one has one. Please dont disqualify yourself from being used by God because you cant change where you are or you think He cant handle your issues. God is well practiced at using those of us who have gotten it all wrong, to show the rest of the world who He is. Because every heart matters!

By Sarah Passingham TV Media Country artists hit the strip on Sunday, April 15, for the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards, airing on CBS. Broadcast live from Las Vegas MGM Grand Garden Arena, its a night of celebrating the best in country music, from veteran superstars to fresh, emerging talents. Hosting the ceremony this year is country music legend Reba McEntire. The eponymous Reba star is no stranger to the hosting gig, having taken the reins a total of 14 times between 1985 and 2012. I really enjoy hosting. Its very exciting. I love live television, the songstress told Entertainment Tonight. Not only does McEntire have solid experience in the hosting seat, she is a record-holding award winner, having taken home 16 awards from the Academy of Country Music over the years the most wins of for Female Vocalist of the Year, an award she is also nominated for this year, making it her 16th nomination in the category. One achievement that is close to the multitalented stars heart is her 1994 win for the ACMs Entertainer of the Year. With a personal connection to the category, McEntire told Entertainment Tonight that she was disappointed about the lack of female nominees this year but remained hopeful, calling country music very cyclical. The girls dominate or the boys dominate, so its coming around. I have faith. Nominated in the category this year are Jason Aldean, Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton and Keith Urban. Her disappointment is understandable, particularly with this being a big year for breakthroughs for women in country music. Bebe Rexha, one of the performers of the night, made history in February when her hit with fellow performers Florida Georgia Line, Meant to Be, topped Billboards Hot Country Songs for the 11th week in a row. Unseating Taylor Swifts We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, the tune became the longest-running No. 1 song by a lead female. Both tracks are crossover hits, with Swifts song being the lead single from her 2012 album, Red, which at the Primarily a pop star herself, Rexha spoke to Billboard of her success on the country charts, saying the beautiful thing about music is that it allows you to break boundaries. Along with Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, the impressive list of performers for this years event includes Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Urban, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney and more. The ceremony welcomes not only country artists but some famous country fans as presenters for the night, including New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Nancy ODell of Entertainment Tonight, actress Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, 2000) and Olympic athlete Lindsey Vonn. ACM Award-nominated artist Bentley put out a call to fans earlier this month, looking to make his performance special. The singer asked his fans on social media to send images of their personal female heroes for the chance to be part of his performance of Woman, Amen, and photos of these heroes will be displayed behind Bentley while he performs his hit during the show. Bentley is not the only one dropping performance hints. McEntire revealed that she would be interested in performing with country icon Dolly Parton during whether the host will be performing during the show with or without Parton, though she surely got fans excited at the prospect. The New Female Vocalist category suggests that the nominees will be largely unknown to music fans, but theres something familiar about nearly all of this years nominated artists. With the exception of Every Little Thing singer Carly Pearce, all of the categorys nominees have been contestants on singing competition shows. Lauren Alaina was runner-up in season 10 of American Idol, Danielle Bradbery became the then-youngest winner of The Voice in season 4, and Lonely Call singer RaeLynn made much talent makes for an exciting, tight race between nominees. Of course, there are plenty of more seasoned artists vying for awards as well. The Vocal Duo of the year category features new talent LOCASH going up against new favorites Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line and the classic duo of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. Interestingly enough, the 2017 album The Rest of Our Life, for which from McGraw and Hill. They have been married for 21 years, and both are major country stars in their own right. The ACM continues its tradition of raising money for its charitable arm, ACM Lifting Lives, with four nights of events in Las Vegas from April 12 to 15. Money raised through the events funds music education, disaster relief and helping communities in need. Notable acts appearing over the four days are the nominees for Songwriter of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year, and Video of the Year nominee Ballerini. out who takes home the big wins from the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards by tuning in to CBS for the live broadcast on Sunday, April 15.

The National Association of Counties has designated April as Coun ty Government Month and encouraged counties to actively promote their programs and services to the public they serve. County Govern ment Month is celebrated each April by counties across the country to raise public awareness and understanding about the roles and responsi bilities of county government. The Council, whose members are local elected ofcials and guber natorial appointees, administers a variety of state and federal programs for north central Florida including Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Dix ie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor and Union Counties. Programs include development of the Strategic Regional Policy Plan, technical assistance to local governments in development of compre hensive plans, land development regulations and grant management, and administration of hazardous materials, homeland security and economic development programs. In addition, the Council staffs the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Organization for the Gainesville Urbanized Area, the North Central Florida Local Emergency Planning Committee, the North Central Florida Regional Hazardous Materials Response Team and The Original Florida Tourism Task Force. The Councils ofces are located in Gainesville. More information about the Council can be found at ncfrpc.org. rfrntbnnnr tnfrbnrn rr Wild Adventures makes waves t kimberly.cannon@ganews.com VALDOSTA Splash Island Waterpark at Wild Adventures Theme Park reopened Saturday for the 2018 season. Splash Island is the largest wa terpark in the South, Adam Floyd, public relations manager, said. The waterpark is connected to the main portion of the theme park, and entry into Splash Island is included with park admission. The waterpark also features the multimillion dollar Ohana Bay ex pansion for toddlers and parents, for which the grand opening was held last year. To protect the safety of guests in the water, 45 lifeguards are staffed on operating days, Lisa Strickland, operations manager for Splash Island, said. Strickland said every lifeguard re ceives around 30 hours of lifeguard training and three days of on-thejob training where the lifeguards are trained on all of the rides. CPR, rst aid, rescue skills and instruction on oxygen supplement equipment are taught. Still, Strickland said training doesnt end there for the lifeguards. They continuously train through out the season doing in-services; we require four hours of in-service (training) a month, Strickland said. She said Splash Island lifeguards use a 10/20 protection standard, which she said means that when a lifeguard is scanning the water he or she must recognize a guest in 10 seconds and respond to them in 20 seconds. Strickland said Ellis and Associ ates, an international aquatic safety and risk management consulting rm, is used for lifeguard training. Splash Island is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sun days.

Those bookends reect the tone both say is needed to chip away at an opioid crisis that has been compared to the 1980s-era AIDS epidemic. I know these are very politically charged times, Conway said, speaking April 4 at the National Rx Drug Abuse and Heroin Summit held in downtown Atlanta. I cant think of a more nonpartisan issue looking for more bipartisan solutions than the opioid crisis and the drug de mand/drug supply and heroin epidemic that is really roiling our nation, she said. No barbs were exchanged here. Clinton, whose foundation has worked on the opioid issue for years, said a unied front is essential. The only silver lining in this whole miserable, heart-break ing mess is that every demographic in every region in both political parties are being crushed by it, Clinton said. If there is one thing we should be able to do together with out any partisan rancor, it should be to take this by the throat and squeeze it until its gone, Clinton added. In 2016, opioids killed a record-setting number of people in in the U.S., with more than 42,000 deaths, or an average of 115 people every day. In Georgia, nearly 1,000 people died from an opioid drug overdose. Nationwide, those numbers are expected to continue to climb as ofcials grapple with how to get a handle on the growing national crisis. Conway briefed attendees on what the Trump administration is doing about it. Particular emphasis has been put on continuing to reduce the massive number of prescriptions written and pushing for national coordination among the state-run prescription drug monitoring programs, which are seen as a tool for curbing overprescribing. We are not talking about the 28 million or so chronic pain sufferers in this country, Conway said. We are talking about the sports injury for the high school or collegiate athlete, the dental procedure, the surgery. She also sought to clarify some of the presidents recent tough talk on seeking the death penalty for drug dealers. The administration wants Congress to look at stricter min imum sentencing guidelines for drug trafckers who have caused multiple overdoses through dangerous drugs like fen tanyl, Conway said. The penalties just arent there right now, she said. The entire impulse comes from how in the world are we going to truly punish those who are directly responsible for the over doses and the deaths of so many people without stiffening up our sentences and in some cases looking at the death penalty? The federal government, meanwhile, will devote $4.6 bil lion to the crisis, which advocates have said is not enough to make a signicant impact. Still, that funding represents nearly three times what is currently spent on the epidemic outside of treatment dollars funneled through Medicaid and Medicare, according to the Associated Press. The National Institutes of Health, whose budget was nearly doubled, is using the money to step up research on preventing addiction from starting and boosting treatment options for those who need it, said Francis Collins, the agencys director. We do have effective treatment, Collins said. Lets make no mistake: Medication-assisted treatment works. But the number of options and the way it has been delivered is some what limited. Medication-assisted treatment is a form of treatment that uses drugs, such as methadone, to help wean people off of powerful painkillers. In Georgia, the growing number of these clinics has troubled lawmakers, who passed tighter regulations last year. Collins said the goal is to eventually have a wide menu of opportunities for people to become free of this scourge and to be able to choose the one that makes the most sense for their circumstances. As an example, he said research is currently being done on a longer-lasting drug that could aid people for six months and help them through a period when they are most vulnerable for relapse. Vivitrol, a drug that blocks the effects of opioids, only lasts for a month. Clinton, Conway join forces in opioid battle

Then, holding the center tube, free the cake from the pan sides. Slip a knife between the cake and the bottom of the pan to loosen the cake over, letting it fall onto a platter.
