Bennett Private Investigator MAYO Lafayette Elementary School students recently competed in the annual Farm Bureau Essay and Poster contests. The essay contest was for the fth grade students. Each student had to write an essay on Why is Agriculture Import ant in America? The poster contest was for all rst graders. The goal of the contest was for students to draw and color what a real farm should look like. This is the Farm Bureaus eighth year sponsoring the contests and both are judged by the Human Relations Depart ment at the state ofce in Gainesville. Brenda Gayle Land, the District Wom ens President, and secretary Amy Croft presented the students with more than $400 in cash awards to the top winners. The winners in the essay contest were Alysha Alfonso (rst place), Elder San tiago (second), Mackenzi Ogburn (third) and Kennah Simpson (fourth). Malah Bass won the poster contest with Katie Weaver nishing second, Harmony Hall third, Mary Lowe fourth and Natalie Newman fth. The students did an outstanding job in both contests. We feel that Agricultural Education is a very important program of Farm Bureau, Croft said. We want to make sure that all children know and appreci ate what farmers and ranchers do for our county, state and nation.

After more than a year of prepara tions and waiting, Armandos Mex ican Bar and Grill opened for lunch for the rst time on Monday. We arrived for lunch early, but by the time we left, every seat inside and outside was occupied. I guess folks were ready to get outside after the solid day of rain on Sunday that sub-tropical storm Alberto brought to our area. I was glad to see people supporting the new restaurant, and I hope it stays open for a long time. Before the grand opening, I had a chance to sit down and talk with Armando and his partner Lazaro about the process and what they had to do to get everything ready. Both men agreed that the hardest part of the process was dealing with the city and getting the necessary permits. They also spent considerable time and money cleaning out the old restaurant and installing new equipment and remodeling. I dont know why the City of Live Oak would do anything to slow down a project like this. The restaurant has already hired 20 servers and 4 cooks. This is exactly the kind of thing the downtown area will need to attract visitors and feed the crowds when special events are held. If you are like me, you were probably sad when the El Mezcal restaurant next door to the courthouse closed. There is no need to be sad anymore. Armandos has many of the same dishes and has added a few Cuban favorites to the menu. The chips and salsa are also just as good as those served at El Mezcal. Another improvement is the hours of operation. The plan is to keep Armandos open 24 hours a day. It will be great to have another late-night option other than Wafe House in Live Oak. On our rst trip to Armandos, we ordered a mix of Mexican and Cuban dishes. The steak sandwich (pan con bistec) was a good as any you could nd in Miami. The black beans were as good as the ones my grandmother used to make. The fajita my mother ordered was served sizzling and was delicious. The food did take longer than anticipated to be prepared, but it was their rst day and it was crowded. I am sure after a few weeks, they will have things running more smoothly. The opening of this restaurant truly is a dream come true for Lazaro and Armando. Both men are originally from Cuba, and they met here in Live Oak. Lazaro has experience in the operation of assisted living facilities. Armando has been working in and around a kitchen since 1995. Their dream is really the American dream, and it is good to see that achieving that dream is still possible. You can visit Armandos Mexican Bar and Grill anytime at 203 Ohio Ave. North right next to the train tracks. You can also call in orders at 386-219-0623.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf A dream nally comes true Several recent polls, plus the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders, demonstrate that young people prefer socialism to free market capitalism. That, I believe, is a result of their ignorance and indoctrination during their school years, from kindergarten through college. For the most part, neither they nor many of their teachers and professors know what free market capitalism is. Free market capitalism, wherein there is peaceful voluntary exchange, is morally superior to any other economic system. Why? Lets start with my initial premise. All of us own our selves. I am my private property, and you are yours. Murder, rape, theft and the initiation of violence are im moral because they violate self-ownership. Similarly, the forcible use of one person to serve the purposes of anoth er person, for any reason, is immoral because it violates self-ownership. Tragically, two-thirds to three-quarters of the federal budget can be described as Congress taking the rightful earnings of one American to give to another American using one American to serve another. Such acts include farm subsidies, business bailouts, Social Security, Medi care, Medicaid, food stamps, welfare and many other programs. Free market capitalism is disfavored by many Ameri cans and threatened not because of its failure but, ironically, because of its success. Free market capitalism in America has been so successful in eliminating the traditional problems of mankind such as disease, pes tilence, hunger and gross poverty that all other human problems appear both unbearable and inexcusable. The desire by many Americans to eliminate these so-called unbearable and inexcusable problems has led to the call for socialism. That call includes equality of income, sex and race balance, affordable housing and medical care, orderly markets, and many other socialistic ideas. Lets compare capitalism with socialism by answering the following questions: In which areas of our lives do we nd the greatest satisfaction, and in which do we nd the greatest dissatisfaction? It turns out that we seldom nd people upset with and in conict with computer and clothing stores, supermarkets and hardware stores. We do see people highly dissatised with and often in conict with boards of education, motor vehicles departments, police and city sanitation services. What are the differences? For one, the motivation for the provision of services of computer and clothing stores, supermarkets and hardware stores is prot. Also, if youre dissatised with their services, you can instantaneously re them by taking your business elsewhere. Its a differ ent matter with public education, motor vehicles depart ments, police and city sanitation services. They are not motivated by prot at all. Plus, if youre dissatised with their service, it is costly and in many cases even impossi ble to re them. A much larger and totally ignored question has to do with the brutality of socialism. In the 20th century, the one-party socialist states of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, Germany under the National Socialist German Workers Party and the Peoples Republic of China were responsible for the murder of 118 million citizens, most ly their own. The tallies were: USSR 62 million, Nazi Germany 21 million and PRC 35 million (http://tinyurl. com/zafgs5p). No such record of brutality can be found in countries that tend toward free market capitalism. Heres an experiment for you. List countries according to whether they are closer to the free market capitalist or to the socialist/communist end of the economic spectrum. Then rank the countries according to per capita gross domestic product. Finally, rank the countries according to Freedom Houses Freedom in the World report. You will nd that people who live in countries closer to the free market capitalist end of the economic spectrum not only have far greater wealth than people who live in countries toward the socialistic/communist end but also enjoy far greater human rights protections. As Dr. Thomas Sowell says, socialism sounds great. It has always sounded great. And it will probably always continue to sound great. It is only when you go beyond rhetoric, and start looking at hard facts, that socialism turns out to be a big disappointment, if not a disaster. Walter E.

While Tropical Storm Alberto brought the area nothing but rain and plenty of it it only takes a look back to last year and Hurricane Irma to recall the issues that a major storm can bring. And Tropical Storm Debby caused devastation here with widespread ooding just six years ago. But even then, the region has felt the impact of numerous hurricanes in the past. The Suwannee River Valley has been a stop ping point for those Florida residents making the exodus from their hurricane-hit areas on either coast. High winds, downed trees, torrential rains and power outages have been experienced as hurri canes have made their way north after coming ashore. Now is the time to prepare for the possibility of a hurricane. Hurricane preparedness is an opportunity to prepare for the worst while hoping for the best. Preparations should start with a basic disaster kit that includes: for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation ishable food NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place ties for personal sanitation charger of insurance policies, identication and bank ac count records in a waterproof, portable container And if there is no hurricane now, and hopefully there will not be one, residents are prepared for the months remaining in the hurricane season.

MAY 30 & 31, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7A jessie.box@ganews.com LIVE OAK Melody Christian Academy held its Class of 2018 graduation Thursday, May 24. The 17 graduating se niors were Olivia Benzing, Zenaida Campos, Brian Cannington, Timothy Choe, Russell Farrell, Jordan Hallock, Tyler Hammes, Brianna-Lee Hofer, Zane Johnson, Ethan Lee, Joseph Loos, Rejoice Lyons, Macy Taylor, Shane Middleton, Cassidy Monroe, Raini Roberge and Zedekiah Ross. Pastor Frank Davis gave the Baccalaureate address. Timothy Choe was Valedictorian. He joked that he was ready to graduate because the tassel kept getting in his eyes. He said deciding to attend Melody was the best decision he made for his future because he re ceived an education that he couldnt anywhere else. He said the teachers would go above and be yond to explore questions that he and fellow class mates had. Cassidy Monroe and Joseph Loos were Saluta torians. Monroe told her fellow students that it was surreal that their high school years are coming to a close. She thanked her fellow students, teachers and par ents for their support. One major lesson that I learned this year is that it is OK to try and fail at something but you only shortchange yourself when you dont give 100 percent or when you shut yourself off to something new and begin with the defeated mentality, Monroe said. Melody graduates 17 seniors rfnfttnbfbbftt rbttfnftftbbbbftt btbbntnftfbbbfbfbftt Healthy Living Learn to shut down negative thoughts Last week I wrote about being in Pan ama City Beach for my anniversary. Im grateful we went the weekend before this past Memorial Day since the weather was absolutely gorgeous and this week we are dealing with a tropical storm. I admit it. Im a people watcher because people amaze me. You see so many good things and unfortunately some bad things when you people watch. While sitting on the beach watching folks as they walked by, I probably had a hundred thoughts go through my head. People walk the beach. Some run on the beach. Others are in the water. And many are stooped over with their elbows and butts in the air looking for the perfect seashell. No matter what folks are doing, they are all enjoying the day at the beach. I watched women strolling by in their bi kinis and thought to myself, when was the last time I wore a bikini? Has to be several years back before my hysterectomy. I used to love wearing a bikini. Now my thoughts range from should a 56-year-old woman wear a 2-piece bathing suit to that woman looks about my age and she looks amazing in her bikini. Girls walked by with boys following not too far behind. My thoughts? I sure miss my 25-year-old butt to that bikini bottom cannot be comfortable. I had a whole lot of unimportant thoughts going in and out of my brain while people watching. After sitting for a while, I decide I need to go into the water to cool off. Up off the chair I go and slowly walk into the ocean. The red ag is ying so I know the surf is rough but I gure it will be no prob lem to ease into the water. What happened next? WHAM! The incoming wave coupled with the outgoing surf knocked me right on my butt. My rst thought? Well that was probably a pretty sight to those sitting on the beach. Payback for my thoughts while people watching. Try to stand back up, literally clawing at the sand because there is a drop off from the beach into the water and what happens? BAM! Knocked right back down on my behind. I look up to the sky and say real ly? Then it dawns on me. I got knocked on my butt twice because I needed to get control of my neg ative thoughts. I usually do not let negative thoughts get the best of me but while relax ing on the beach, my thoughts wandered and some of those thoughts denitely needed to be wrangled. Wouldnt it be amazing if every time we had negative thoughts, we would get knocked on our butt so we could stop those thoughts dead in their tracks? It may sound crazy, but we can. When you nd yourself with a negative thought, take a moment, say stop, then shake your head and imagine throwing those negative thoughts out with the trash. The simple moment of becoming aware then discarding those negative thoughts will get you right back on track. And you wont need to get knocked on your butt twice to shake them off.

For many students, this week marks the celebration of a long-awaited achievement, as well as the beginning of a new challenge: What will I do with my life? Some of you have carefully mapped out plans, while others are still struggling for answers. In your search, consider the words of Jeremiah 6:16, This is what the Lord says: Stand at the crossroads and look: ask for the an cient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will nd rest for your souls You now stand at one of the biggest crossroads of your life. Graduation is the end of a path that began years ago as you left Mom and Dad to climb onto the school bus and walk into the classroom on your own. Now, enjoy your time to celebrate, but always with an eye to the future. Stand at this crossroad and look. At a crossroad, or intersection, you make your decision about which way to go based on where you want to end up. Consider what you have learned about life and about yourself and look for the good way that leads to your future. The right path for living is marked out by God, but it requires careful searching to uncover. The easier path will always be easily found and tempting but know that it leads to a dead-end life. When we ignore Gods map we lose our way. Walk in it. Once you get a glimpse of that good way, dont get frustrated if you cant see the whole plan right now. Start with one step. It may be that you nd the directions for the next step on the way. Get going! A tiny rudder can turn a huge ship, but only if it is moving. Be condent that God has a plan for your life. In Ephe sians 2:10 the Bible tells us For we are Gods workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. That word work manship also means masterpiece, one of a kind! God created you uniquely for a specic purpose: to do good works. The kicker is that He has prepared them in advance for you to do. All we must do is follow His map to nd them! Find rest for your souls. Of all the things I could hope and pray for you, this is it. In a world full of unrest, strife and lack of peace, having rest for your soul is priceless, and it only comes from being in right standing with the One who created you. Notice that this rest comes as a result of standing, looking, asking and walking with Him. Your life consists of the time between your appointed birth and death; how will you spend it? Choose carefully, because your heart (and your life) mat ters! Congratulations and Blessings!

How many times do parents hear these expressions during the summer months? During my day and age, the summer va cations were completely lled from sun up till sundown at Camp TF, and it was not an exclusive camp, many in our area were in attendance (Camp Tobacco Field). In todays world, though, as soon as the regular school year comes to an end, boredom for many sets in. Many times this boredom can be dis pelled with just a little creative thought, and the events that will dispel the bore dom wont break the bank either. The Suwannee River Regional Library System offers any number of summer reading programs, program outreaches, great opportunities to check out books, movies, spend time on the computer at any number of the library branches and enjoy what is offered at your local public libraries. There are programs for adults, too. In Jasper, we offer two adult book club opportunities, during the month of June, our evening book club which meets on Mon day, June 18, at 6 p.m. ,will be discussing James Grippandos A Death in Live Oak, and our morn ing club which meets on Thursday, June 21, at 11 a.m., will be discussing Dorothea Bentons Same Beach, Next Year. The books are available for checkout at our local library, and we cordially invite you to come join us. State Parks. The state parks through out our area offer so many wonderful opportunities for family outings and, in many cases, rangers are offering some ongoing education that may be of in terest to students and adults. There are any number of state parks in our area, Suwannee River State Park, at Ellavillle; Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, White Springs; Big Shoals State Park, White Springs. Contact your area state park to nd out what is being offered. You can create your own activity for students at the area state parks, take a day and go tubing at Itcheetucknee State Park near Ft. White on the crystal clear river and enjoy the scenery along the way. The Branford area offers any number of beautiful springs, and there are canoe and kayak launches through out the area for those who want to get on the river and paddle through some of Gods most beautiful scenery. Each turn in the river is a new photo opportunity, and you will come away appreciating the glory of Gods creation much more. Pack a picnic lunch and spend some time in your own community just enjoy ing the scenery around you and what is offered. Heritage Park and Gardens in Live Oak would be a great place for a family to enjoy a picnic and an outing and, as stated before, many of these destinations designed to dispel summer boredom wont cost a dime. If you dont want to go for an outdoor opportunity, check out a marvelous and classic DVD from your public libraries, plan a picnic right on the oor in front of your family television under the cool of the air conditioner and spend some time with those you love laughing and enjoy ing a great movie. Theres more to do than you can imag ine, and so much of it is within a short driving or walking distance right here, Way down upon the Suwannee River. Boredom, no way, unless you allow it to overtake you. Theres a lot to do, and, in the words of Dr. Seuss Oh the Places Youll Go and none of them will take you far from home or break the family bank. Get out and enjoy with those you love. From the Eight Mile Still on the Woodpecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day lled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter.

Quoting Dr. Seuss, Kurz told the Class of 2018 that Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is noone alive who is youer than you. Kurz, a history teach er at Westwood as well as paster at Faith Baptist Church in Lake City, then told the graduates Na talie Albritton, Celsi Bash, Katye Shattler, Shelby Smith and John Stout as well as the family and friends in attendance at Westwood Baptist Church, that that individualization is a Biblical concept. You are special, you are unique, Kurz said. God made you and created you to be who you are, so be you. Quoting from Psalm 139, Kurz explained how God created each person and determined their purpose while they are still in their mothers womb. You are a miracle, he added. You are amazing. How God designed you is wonderful. Those wonderful designs have been through it all to gether, according to Allbrit ton, the class valedictorian. From the scraped knees on the playground to the cliche teenage drama, she said, reminding her classmates that they had help from teachers, admin istrators, friends and family members to reach this mile stone. Smith, the class salutato rian, echoed those thoughts. This year has been a journey full of ups and downs, she said. But overall, each one of us has grown as a person in a spe cial way. They have grown also into being that person that God designed them into being. In fact, Kurz encour aged the Class of 2018 to continue searching for that purpose that God designed into their adult lives. Rather than worry about what friends and family may think is the right pur suit, focus on His plan. The exciting thing is to gure out what Gods pur pose is for you, Kurz said. My encouragement is go discover the you that God designed you to be. Be the you that God created you to be.

MAY 30 & 31, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A Life in White Springs Leaving White Springs, or any small town, can be a revealing experience, one that gives you a better view of the pluses and minuses of the place you leave and, hopefully, return to. Our perspective of life in White Springs was recently informed and im proved when we left here to visit Wash ington D.C., with two stops in Kinston, N.C., one on the way up, and one on the way home. We were going to Washing ton to see my sister receive her doctorate in divinity from the Virginia Theological Seminary and we combined the trip with some sightseeing in Washington and in the midsize town of Kinston. Surprisingly, Kinston made the biggest impression! Why Kinston? We dont know anyone there but we were attract ed to the place by the story of Vivian Howard, who left Kinston in her youth to pursue a career as a chef in some of the best restaurants in New York City. When she left Kinston, a historic town that was long past its heyday, there was no doubt in her mind that she was leaving for good, escaping life in a small town that was steadily continuing its journey on the downside of its best days. Like many a small town kid with a good education and big dreams, Vivian Howard joined that modern day exodus of young people who leave their home and begin a successful, bigger, wider and worldlier life. Unlike most of them, while she was still young and full enough of tal ent and potential to be successful anywhere in the world, Vivian returned home. Why? What made her come back? What effect did her return have on her and the community that she tried to es cape? Vivians return has been chronicled on A Chefs Life, a PBS series that we regularly watched, and we wanted to see for ourselves what drew her back to her home and what hap pened to Vivian and to Kinston after the prodigal daughter returned. What enticed her to return? A big part of the answer was family. Her parents were successful farmers who raised hogs and grew tobacco, cotton, soybeans and corn. They offered to assist if Vivian and her husband Ben would return to Kinston and open a restaurant there. Contemplat ing raising a family in New York City, twins it turned out, was probably a daunt ing enough prospect to cause Vivian and her husband to consider and accept the offer. Kinston, N.C., and family could give them something that they would never nd in New York, and they could give Kinston and the surrounding area something in return, a fresh perspective and new ideas that still respected the community but vastly changed things from the good old days which were, in some ways, not so good anymore. They opened their restaurant, Chef and the Farmer, in Kinston in 2006 in a building that had once been a mule sta ble, and there they began to serve some high end entrees that challenged some old ideas, but still had some reverence for traditional foods and recipes that could be connected to the Kinston area, with some enhancements and fresh perspec tives that were born of their advanced culinary training and their New York restaurant experiences. They were revolu tionary on one hand and respectful on the other, a potent combination! They rocked the local culinary boat with their new ideas and they kept their connection to the community, buying 60 percent of the ingredients used at the restaurant within a 90 mile radius. They took risks, risks that eventually paid dividends to them and to their community. They knew how to spread the word too! Nobody is going to come visit you if they dont know youre open for business. The whole venture was so extraordinary that a documentary pilot lm was made and then picked up by PBS to be produced as a series. Kinston is on the rise now, with other new shops and restaurants opening every year, and you can feel the energy when you visit there. It might not have hap pened if Vivian had been satised with the status quo and never left town, and it surely wouldnt have happened if she had not loved home and family enough to re turn, or if old, traditional Kinston had not welcomed her, and been willing to give her and her husband and their new-fan gled ideas a chance to succeed! Vivian Howard had good reasons for leaving home and there are plenty of good reasons for leaving White Springs too, but lets dont forget to leave the door open to our prodigal sons and daughters. We should welcome them, and all those folks who want to come to our home town with well-planned fresh per spectives and new ideas. That just might be what saves us! 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 con tact 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. Walter McKenzie 386-303-1394 lifeinwhitesprings@gmail.com Leaving White Springs TALLAHASSEE To help combat the invasive Southern Pine Beetle, which is currently pres ent in 52 infestation sites throughout six Florida counties, the Florida For est Service is accepting applications for the 2018 Southern Pine Beetle As sistance and Prevention Program from non-indus trial, private forest land owners through June 29. The program is limited to 44 northern Florida counties, the known range of the southern pine beetle. The southern pine beetle is one of the most economically devastating forest pests of the south east, with periodic out breaks leading to deaths of millions of pine trees. In 2017, 260 SPB infes tations were reported in Florida, killing trees on 1,768 acres. This pales in comparison to the last major outbreaks between 1999 and 2002, which caused an estimated $59 million in timber losses. Since it was rst offered in 2005, the program has been implemented on more than 183,000 acres and helped thousands of landowners. These small infesta tions average less than an acre now, but they have the ability to expand rapid ly this time of year, said Jim Karels, State Forester and Director of the Flor ida Forest Service. Its imperative that we remain vigilant to keep this inva sive pest at bay. The Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program, sup ported through a grant by the United States Forest Service, provides incentive payments for landowners who conduct a rst pulp wood thinning and offers partial cost reimbursement for activities, such as pre scribed burning, mechani cal underbrush treatments, and the planting of long leaf or slash pine rather than the loblolly pine, the beetles preferred species. Qualied landowners can apply for up to two differ ent practices per year, and funding requests may not exceed $10,000. All quali fying applications received during the submission pe riod will be evaluated and ranked for approval.

According to Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John, 19-year-old Trevon Hines drowned in the Su wannee River near Telford Springs. It is certainly a tragic moment in the time of Suwannee High School on the eve of graduation and for the Trey Hines family, Superintendent of Schools Ted Roush said. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this sad moment. Hines went to Telford Springs on Thursday with his girlfriend and her family, according to St. John. When they began swimming in the river, Hines walked alongside at the edge of the river. St. John said the SHS student then slipped and fell off a log and into the river. He went under and never came back up, according to the sheriff. Hines girlfriend tried to rescue him and St. John said a nearby sherman, who has experience as a diver, also dove in to help, but to no avail. St. John said when the Suwan nee County Sheriffs Ofces boat arrived, they were nally able to locate the victim. Hines was honored during the SHS graduation as two of his foot ball teammates, John Fry and Brant ley Roberson carried his jersey across the stage when his named was announced.

MAY 30 & 31, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 14A State & Region tom.lynn@ganews.com MOULTRIE, Ga. A Coke and a welcoming smile can take a person far about 100 miles as the crow ies. Thats the distance between Moul trie and Gainesville, Fla., but the actual distance is much greater as buses trans porting veterans to the U.S. Veterans Administration Hospital stop at Coolidge, Thomasville, Boston, Quitman and Val dosta along the way. That winding roads from Moultrie to Lake City have been traversed for more than 25 years, and, yes, its paid for by selling Coca-Cola. Every year, veterans sell soft drinks during the three-day Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition in Moultrie. The proceeds keep the bus on the road as it makes its weekly journey. There are two veterans tents where we sell Coke products only, said Tom Davis, a retired Army sergeant major. That and the donations we get will run the bus for a year. The VA picks up some or all of the costs of treatments at the Florida clinics in Lake City and Gainesville but doesnt provide a means to get there. Many veter ans are disabled or aging or have no other transportation and rely on the bus. The federal government provides nu merous services to veterans but many still fall through the cracks and can easily be forgotten. Thats where veteran organizations such as the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and many others come in to pick up the slack. The SunLight Project Team, which covers Valdosta, Moultrie, Thomasville, Milledgeville and Dalton, Ga., along with Live Oak, Jasper and Mayo, Fla., reached out to veterans and veteran organizations to learn what services are offered to vet erans. Many vets spoke highly about the men and women in government agencies such as VA clinics and the Department of Vet erans Affairs, but were more critical of the government when it doesnt provide the proper funding for adequate facilities and manpower. Veterans say they are often forced to take care of their own in situations where the government wont or doesnt help. Which is what inspired the Veterans Ex press Bus. Davis said it is veterans helping fellow veterans. The reason it started, a lot of them were farmers coming out of the military. A lot of them were hurt, said Davis, a former American Legion commander in Moultrie and member of the South Georgia Veterans Activity Committee that operates the bus. They didnt have transportation. Residents of Southern states have a strong tradition of military service. Davis, who retired after 30 years of ser vice with two infantry tours in Vietnam, said the last number he heard for veterans living in Southwest Georgia was about 5,000. The two facilities in Florida offer ex cellent care, he said. They are clean and the staff is attentive and professional. Of all the veterans Ive talked to, they wont even think of going somewhere else, Davis said. Youd think it being a veterans hospital, it would be second class, but Im telling you, its rst class. In addition to the bus service, work ing with churches, the committee sends down personal items such as deodorant and soap to veterans in the hospital. The hospital provides everything necessary, but extras are appreciated by the veterans, Davis said. In addition to a free ride to and from the hospital, volunteers bring sausage bis cuits and coffee donated by local restau rants. The Veterans Express Bus was the brainchild of Jerry Poole of the Veterans Service Ofce in Moultrie. He proposed using a bus to take veterans from here to the hospital with stops at other South Georgia towns to pick up veterans in those areas. I told him, I dont think itll work, Jerry, recalled Johnnie Shiver, a World War II veteran who is active in the American Legion. He said, Lets try it and see. The Thomas County Board of Educa tion donated a surplus school bus and the project started off. During the next 15 years or so, the veterans used a total of three surplus buses two from Thomas County and one from Colquitt County before they were nally able to buy a new one in 2004. Retired Col. Hoyt Holland was instru mental in raising the money for the new bus, Shiver said. Holland died in 2015. In a 2011 inter view, he said he told Poole the bus idea wouldnt work, but he agreed to uphol ster the old bus seats at his upholstery shop for free. After the success of the bus, Holland became one of the its biggest supporters, going so far as getting his own commer cial drivers license so he could drive. To this day, the bus travels to the Lake City VA Medical Center every Thursday. It pulls into the Moultrie Walmart park ing lot at 6 a.m., Davis said. Punctuality is important because some times veterans are waiting for the bus. We have veterans in the winter tell us, Ive been walking since 1:30 (a.m.) to get here, Davis said. Veterans for Veterans Richard Brown, commander of the Valdosta American Legion Post 13, said the legion was founded in 1919 by World War I vets who believed they werent getting the services they deserved. There are around 150 VA hospitals nationwide and about 1,800 clinics, Brown said. With nine million vets in this country, is it no wonder there are go ing to be problems? He said the problems dont mean vets want to get rid of the VA as most vets he knows love it. Brown said he was one of the lucky ones who served during the Vietnam War. His brother, though, was less fortunate. His brother has been in a wheelchair for nearly two decades and has been in a VA hospital for three years, Brown said. He tells me he gets excellent ser vice,Brown said. The VA has helped him tremendously. Yeah, you have to jump through a hoop sometimes, but thats with any hospital. If they had more facilities ... more money, well, who knows? Suwannee County resident Scott Stone has also been impressed with the service hes received at the VA hospital in Lake City where he is getting treatment for tears in both of his knees. When I needed them, the VA was there, said Stone, now a Philadelphia native that served in the U.S. Navy, in cluding a stint in Vietnam in 1972-73. I would have been lost without them if they werent there. He said they have treated him with respect. Organizations, such as the American Legion, help veterans jump through the bureaucratic hoops. The closest VA hos pitals are the facilities in Lake City and Gainesville, Fla. Veterans in and around Valdosta who dont have easy access to vehicles have to rely on a bus similar to the Veterans Express Bus out of Moul trie. The bus program relies on volunteers and is constantly in need of drivers, Brown said. I credit a person like that, who volun teers, he said. I dont know how many veterans are in the area, but they need that support. Brown said Valdosta and Lowndes County support veterans in the commu nity. Many people attend veterans events but he cant help but notice that more people show up for Memorial Day than Veterans Day. It just shows that its easier to honor vets after they die than while theyre alive, Brown said. Not that were unappreciative, just something Ive no ticed. People want to support the troops, but dont want to pay. Hospitals arent cheap. Brown said the little things, such as thanking a veteran or helping a veteran on the side of the road, do make a difference. He said its not just the big events and parades that show a community respects veterans; its seeing someone donate a couple of bucks to a veteran in need. In Milledgeville, a former Marine in fantryman wanted to help veterans in his community in a different way than the American Legion. Cameron Roland, a veteran who saw combat in the now-infamous battle of Fallujah while serving in Iraq, moved to Millegdeville to study at Georgia College after his discharge. He now works for the Geico Insurance Company in Macon. Roland said reentering civilian life comes with a unique set of challenges. The hardest part, he said, is nding the same level of camaraderie he had in the military. You also dont have the same struc ture as youre used to, and you have to deal with everyones misconceptions about veterans, Roland said. People think all veterans are messed up in the head as soon as they get out. In his time as a student at Georgia Col lege, Roland became involved in Omega Delta Sigma, a national fraternity for vet erans attending the nations universities. Roland said he wanted to bring some thing different to ODS than the American Legion. That is why he brought ODS to Georgia College for young adult and college-aged veterans who need a place where they can be among their peers. While veterans sometimes feel civilians dont understand their military experi ences, Roland said organizations such as ODS can give veterans a place where they dont feel singled out. I wouldnt say it helps you assimilate necessarily, Roland said of the nations network of veteran groups. It gives you a place where you can be around other veterans and where you dont have to act like a civilian. Despite the challenges, he said he has had little trouble adapting to civilian life. Some Thomasville veterans said people such as Roland are needed for veterans groups to survive. If we are to survive and help veterans, weve got to have younger veterans step ping up, said Johnnie Clark, whose rst military service was in the Navy before joining the National Guard. An administrative specialist at the National Guard armory in Thomasville, Clark put in 36 years of military duty. Today, he works for Thomas County government as supervisor of electrical repairs and maintenance of county build ings. Clark said when people see a veteran selling something, they should try to help. Allen Cook Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4995 recently paid $2,765 for 3,300 American ags to be distributed at veter ans graves in Thomas County cemeteries on Memorial Day. The VFW needs younger members, said Jeff Lemon, a former U.S. Army crew chief and door gunner on Huey he licopters. Lyndall Knight, the Post 4995 com mander, convinced Lemon to transfer his VFW membership to Thomasville six years ago. Lemon is the incoming post quartermaster. Knight served in the Army in the infan try, combat engineers, logistical support and military police in Germany, Japan, several state-side posts, Panama, the Per sian Gulf and Vietnam. After two Thomas County veterans died recently, Post 4995 members vis ited their families to see if they needed anything and to offer their help for the funerals. We will be sure they get a grave marker and are not forgotten, Knight said. He calls deceased veterans families about every three months to see how theyre doing. Lemon, who is retired from Pratt & Whitney, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. When he left the Army and went to work for the aircraft compa ny, he joined others with the problem, but no one talked about PTSD. Medication has helped Lemon. He said he is much better. Thats due to the Veterans Adminis tration, he said. Lemon said the care is outstanding at the Tallahassee, Fla., VA clinic where he receives treatment. On a recent trip he discovered a cyst on his back, went to the clinic and was seen within ve minutes. Although he is improving from his PTSD, Lemon struggles with loud noises or crowds. Thats slowly changing, he said. I used to have a lot of depression and anxi ety. I still do to some extent. Transitioning from military duty to ci vilian life can be difcult, particularly for Vietnam-era veterans. The news media concentrated on socalled massacres and not the good done by U.S. troops, who built roads and bridg es, provided education and constructed runways and airports all of which con tinue to serve Vietnam, Knight said. Gregory Thweat, an Army veteran, worked in light wheel vehicles and was a power generator mechanic. Today, he is employed by Thomas County Fleet Ser vices as a senior technician and is incom ing Post 4995 commander. Thweat said someone might leave a job of bagging groceries in the states to be shipped out to a place where he or she could be blown up. Military personnel are used to working at high levels. They return to see civilians working at a much slower pace or even delaying what needs to be done until the next day, Thweat said. Veterans go from a regimented sched ule to a lackadaisical schedule, Knight said. They nd people with similar back grounds and mindsets in places such as the American Legion. Knight said the days when VFW posts were smoky places where members drank beer, wore funny hats and told war stories are gone. Now, it is about camaraderie people spending time with like-minded people who have each others back. SEE MILITARY, PAGE 15A rff nnftb rrn

MAY 30 & 31, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 15A Bringing help home Phil Youngblood has wanted to bring a VA Clinic to Lowndes County for about 20 years. In the late 1990s, the then-commander of Valdostas American Legion Post 13 began work to bring a VA Clinic to the city. He was part of a committee putting to gether a white paper, which is an author itative report intended to concisely pro vide information about a complex issue. I personally took that white paper to Washington and delivered a copy of it to every (Georgia) member of the House of Representatives and both senators, Youngblood said. It still took another year and half to get a clinic. Since then, the VA Clinic, 2841 N. Patterson St., has continued to grow with a current proposal to move it to a bigger facility, he said. The point of that story is that it took a lot of effort to get a clinic that the area desperately needed, Youngblood said. We put together an ad hoc committee built from local VSOs (Veteran Service Organization) and pulled together a lot of data of the area. When we showed it to the VA, they had no idea how many vet erans were here. Youngblood said he has been trying to tell the VA for years that there is a population of veterans in South Georgia looking for care. He said the VA had the statistics, but didnt make the effort to nd out how many people out of that number were el igible for health care and in need of care, but werent signed up to receive it. I think they were extremely naive about the true numbers, Youngblood said. So, when they nally made a push to sign these veterans up in health care, they were overwhelmed, which is why, I think, you started hearing about all of these issues at the VA. He blames the backlog on the VA forgetting its mandate to the individual and only focusing on the end product, he said. They get so busy dealing with what they call end products, they forgot they were dealing with people, Youngblood said. Now, has the VA made improve ments? Absolutely, and I dont think it needs to be privatized. President Donald Trump has said on multiple occasions he is for privatizing the VA, but Youngblood said he doesnt know any veteran who supports privat Continued From Page 14A Military ization. The VA was established to take care of veterans, he said. There is no medical organization that is more attuned and aligned with the mission of taking care of veterans than the VA, he said. Rather than passing some bill to pay someone else, why dont they take that money and put it in the current system to pay for the staff the VA needs? Young blood said. Fix the system, dont throw it away. This is a good system. People just need to remember what the VAs mandate is. I wish you could just wave a magic wand, but you cant. He said everyone has their horror sto ries regarding the VA, but that that could be said of any hospital. George Lo Greco, a Vietnam vet in Dalton, said he thinks most VA doctors respect veterans. The ones who dont are in the minority, but those are the ones who are causing problems, he said. There are a lot of good people in the VA, but they are starved by their budget, he said. People need to call their senators and tell them to save the VA. Theres talk about closing down the VA. The veterans I talk to dont want that. They want the VA to have what it needs to do its job. We are lucky. The veterans and the doctors up in the Chattanooga VA clinic have a great relationship. They are very good. If you dont call the VA but call your doctor, theyll make arrangements. They can move a Thursday to a Friday, or a few days later at most. They are very accommodating and understanding. Theyve got good people up there and good equipment. Lo Greco served in the Marine Corps from 1964-74 and served in Vietnam from 1965-68. He was a combat engineer and is cur rently an independent insurance agent and service ofcer at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4985 in Dalton. He is also a member of American Legion Post 112 and commander of Sons of the American Legion Squadron 112, both in Dalton. The service ofcer in the VFW is in volved in helping veterans le claims with the VA, Lo Greco said. He has led hundreds of claims. The VFW sends every post service ofcer to an all-day school at least twice a year. Lo Greco said being in the insurance business gives him an advantage as a ser vice ofcer. It gives me experience with exclu sions, he said. The good news is always in big type, up front. Ive learned to get my magnifying glass and go to the exclu sions. Or get it on screen and blow it up. Youve got to read the exclusions and the glossary. All of these laws and rules are written by lawyers, and I dont think they want the average high school graduate to be able to le his own claim. Lo Greco said an experienced service ofcer can save a person years. There are always pitfalls. Dalton is blessed to have a state De partment of Veterans Service ofce, he said. It les hundreds of claims a day. There are hundreds of service organiza tions, and many of them just raise money and little of it goes to veterans and the rest goes in their pockets, he said. In his opinion, the best service organization is the Disabled American Veterans. They have a book this thick, Lo Gre co said, holding his hands several inches apart. They are much better informed about the goings on at the VA than the American Legion and VFW put together. If you really want your claims done right, go to the DAV. Dennis Burkart and his friend, Davis Gross, are from Lima, Ohio. Burkart moved to Hamilton County a few years ago and recently convinced Gross to move there, too. Since coming south, the veterans have had completely different experiences ling claims at the VA. Burkart served in the Army for two years and signed out after a severe car accident while on duty. When he rst got out, the VA told him that because he signed to get out, he was not entitled to any services. In 2009, a friend helped him sign up, and he now receives a monthly pension. Gross served in Vietnam between 196870, as well as 12 years of active duty as an Army Ranger and 25 years in the Na tional Guard. When I retired, nobody told me to go to the VA, Gross said. While still living in Ohio, he was diag nosed with diabetes due to Agent Orange. He also has malaria. He said the VA told him he could have contracted malaria from a cruise and refused treatment. You had so much ghting up north and when I came down here, its been great, Gross said. He said he has received great care from the VA since moving to Florida. He asked to receive a colonoscopy at one of his visits. I would have had to wait three years before the VA would give me a colonos copy in the north, Gross said. Four days later, he was diagnosed with colon cancer and received surgery in De cember 2017. He also had his cataracts xed quickly. I had to be stage four up north for treatment and I was only stage two, Gross said. Burkart said while in Ohio, he had to go to a civilian doctor to get glasses. Nobody should have to ght for their rights and their benets, Gross said. Fellow Hamilton County resident Billy Jackson served in the Army for six years. He served two tours in Vietnam. The VA program in my perspective has improved over the last 25 years, Jackson said. He said the Lake City location has the best service but he has an issue with the means test. It is an income-based docu ment that helps the VA decide whether the veteran receives free services or if a copay is needed for services. Jackson suggested if someone served the country, receiving care should not be tied to income. These types of issues are exactly what Jason Lane, veterans service ofcer at the Valdosta Department of Veterans Service ofce, handles. Lane, a Purple Heart recipient, said each veteran is dealing with a different problem, whether it is ling disability, getting health care, nding a proper cem etery or just looking for help assimilating back into civilian life. Ive been there, Lane said. Id say the hardest part about leaving the military is getting used to being a civilian. For Veterans Services, the hardest part of its job is getting veterans to fully uti lize its services. Lane said pride prevents many veterans from learning about their benets. They were trained how to be tough and then suddenly they have to reach out for help, he said. That can be difcult for many of them. This is especially true for Vietnam veterans, Lane said. There are many Viet nam vets who left the service and never learned about their benets. With thousands of veterans in Valdosta, Lane encourages anyone to stop by the ofce at 2841 N. Patterson St., next to the VA Clinic, to see if they are eligible for benets. He said a lot of veterans who walk through his door dont know what they need, but he helps them through it. Filing claims is rst and foremost what we offer, but second is that peace of mind in letting them know that they are not alone in this, Lane said. Its a hard road, you know, but were here to help you.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS MAY 30 & 31, 2018 michael.jones@ganews.com JASPER A look back at some of the best games, stories and sports moments from the 2017-18 school year at Hamil ton County High School. 10. Comeback kids The HCHS boys soccer team fell behind on two occasions on Senior Night, but their young sters responded with some timely goals. Eighth grader Omar Lopez scored twice and sophomore Malakai Perez netted the game-winner in Hamilton Countys 3-2 win on Jan. 26. 9. Girls basketball downs Suwannee After losing to Suwannee ear lier in the season, the Hamilton County girls basketball team got some revenge with a 40-30 win on Feb. 3. Kelsionna Fudge sparked HCHS with a buzz er-beating 3-pointer just before halftime and went on to score a game-best 18 points. 8. Zamoras standout season If youre looking for con sistency, look no further than shortstop/pitcher Javy Zamora. He put up excellent numbers on offense (.384, 15 RBIs, 16 sto len bases) and as a pitcher (3.14 ERA, 51 1-3 innings, 67 strike outs) in his senior campaign. A four-year starter, Zamora nished his high school career with a .324 batting average and notched 151 strikeouts in 116 2-3 innings pitched. 7. Hot start Mike Cohen, in his rst sea son as head basketball coach, got his team off to a great start as HCHS went 6-2 3-0 in district play against some tough opponents. 6. Girls basketball tops Madison County to reach the playoffs With a playoff spot on the line, Fudge and Journey Tucker combined for 30 points to take Hamilton County past Madison County in a district seminal. Tucker had the range from dis tance and Fudge did a little of everything with 14 points, seven rebounds, ve steals and three assists. 5. Homecoming The HCHS football team throttled North Florida Educa tion Institute 60-0 on Oct. 20 for homecoming. Freshman Tyler Whetstone and eight grader Foster Bristol combined to rush for 141 yards and three Hamilton County Highs SEE BEST, PAGE 3B rf rfntbftnnnnb rn rfnnffnnbn rnt nbn tffnn rnt tbbffbnfrbf Lafayettes Haley Ellefson is a three-sport all star rnt rfntfrff ff michael.jones@ganews.com MAYO To be invited to a FACA (Florida Ath letic Coaches Association) all-star game is no easy feat. FACA all-star games showcase the best seniors in the state, and many former all-star have gone on to play collegiately, some professionally. Thats what makes Haley Ellefsons recent accom plishment so impressive. Ellefson, who earned a spot in the softball all-star game, became the rst three-sport all star in FACA history. She also competed in volleyball and basket ball. I feel very accomplished. I know it makes my family happy, my team happy and the community Tillman back on the playing eld Suwannee High graduate Dan iel Tillman is back playing base ball. Tillman, coming off of shoulder surgery, is playing for the Wichita Wingnuts, an independent league team in Wichita, Kansas. In four innings pitched, Tillman has struck out eight while record ing two saves. Tillman, a 2007 SHS grad, played collegiately at Florida Southern College. He was a second-round MLB draft pick in 2010 and played in the minor league systems of the Los Ange les Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers.

So Barkley will be owned in all fan tasy football leagues, so this exercise is pointing out who, other than Barkley, could make an impact in fantasy football, now that we know where they landed. Heres three rookie running backs who should get a look entering the 2018 fan tasy football season. Ronald Jones II, Tampa Bay Bucca neers As noted before, I like Jones. He doesnt do a lot in the passing game, but the Buccaneers made Doug Martin a household fantasy football name a few years ago by using his ground and pound technique. The same can happen with Jones, who is the best pure runner among the rookies drafted in the NFL draft. He averaged more than 6 yards per carry during his career with USC and was utilized heavily in the running attack. Tampa Bay can use him in a similar fash ion, trying to keep the pressure off Jameis Winston in the passing game. At rst, expect Jones to share time with Peyton Barber. As the season progresses, I ex pect Jones to make more of an impact as a fantasy football commodity. Derrius Guice, Washington Redskins Based on pure talent, Guice should have been a rst-round running back. Thanks to pre-draft character analy sis, though, Guice slid to the Redskins, which will use him on rst and second down only. With Chris Thompson as the thirddown running back, there wont be any room for Guice as a three-down running back. That worries me a bit for his overall production, especially with a Washington team that isnt known for high-level output out of early down run ning backs. However, without Kirk Cousins at the helm, the Redskins may be more inclined to utilize the running game more in the early downs. That could boost Guices fantasy output, since hes a likely candi date to receive the bulk of the carries. Royce Freeman, Denver Broncos Sometimes fantasy football output is all about t. Thats what I like about Freeman. Hes going to get an opportunity to play right away. Devontae Booker is the lead back currently, but hes more likely a third-down option, with Freeman being an early down running back. Denver needs a more stabilizing force in the backeld, and Freeman can be uti lized in the running and passing games. He was one of the best in college foot ball at not only breaking tackles, but also as a pass catcher out of the backeld. Freeman can develop into a threedown running back. That may not be his role in the beginning, but he has the abil ity to develop into that kind of running back during his rst year. Scott Levine is the Associate Editor for the Clinton Herald. During his free time, he blogs about fantasy sports and handicaps games. His Against The Chalk blog has earned him back-to-back Iowa Newspaper Association awards for Best Blog. Check out more at Against The Chalk. Is there any rookie running back worth owning in fantasy football?

Now Oering BOTOX!(386) 362-6556 1-800-829-6506 A person need not be auditioning for the next season of American Idol or e Voice to start belting out a favorite tune. According to the singing advocacy group Chorus America, more than 32 million American adults sing regularly in groups nationwide. Millions of children enjoy music education as part of their school curriculum as well. Although many people may restrict their singing to the shower or when no one is around to hear them, there are some surprising health benets of singing frequently and encouraging others to do so as well. Singing and stressScientists say that singing can have a calming but energizing eect on people. Singing can help tame stress but also li the spirits. Singing is a natural antidepressant. According to information published in Time magazine, singing may release endorphins associated with feelings of pleasure as well as stimulate the release of oxytocin, a hormone that is found to alleviate anxiety and stress. Prevention magazine notes that choir singers, who oen report feeling happy and free of signicant anxiety, may notice their moods improving when they start to sing.Singing and immune system functionSinging can be a form of exercise that works the lungs and other parts of the body required to project ones voice. Singing may lead to a stronger diaphragm and stimulation of circulation due to the greater amount of oxygen needed to carry a tune. Research conducted at the University of Frankfurt found that professional choir members who had their blood tested before and aer an hour-long rehearsal displayed a greater amount of antibodies called immunoglobulin A aer the rehearsal. ese increases were not found in the choir members who simply listened to music. In the study, titled Singing modulates mood, stress, cortisol, cytokine and neuropeptide activity in cancer patients and carers, researchers found higher levels of cytokines present in the blood of those who sung for an hour in a choir, and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol.Singing and snoringSinging may help alleviate snoring. A 2008 study published in the journal Sleep Breath found that the prevalence and severity of snoring among semiprofessional singers and nonsingers indicated that singers scored lower on the snoring scale. Singing strengthens muscles in the airway that can help reduce snoring. Furthermore, the breathing required to sustain a song may help improve lung function and reduce symptoms of mild asthma.Singing and memorySinging may help improve mental alertness by delivering more oxygenated blood to the brain. For those with dementia, singing can improve concentration and memory recollection. e Alzheimers Society has a Singing for the Brain program to help people with dementia maintain their memories.Singing and social connectionsSinging with a group can reduce loneliness by bringing together like-minded people engaged in the same activity.

Keyvon Webb and Melvin Brown had two touchdowns apiece and Ni gel Cherry also got into the end zone. 4. Driggers signs Brad Drig gers is headed to Piedmont International University (North Carolina) to play college base ball. Driggers started for four years for the Trojans and put up the best num bers of his career in his senior year (.333, 21 RBIs, 34 1-3 innings pitched, 3.06 ERA, 45 strikeouts). 3. Sweeping Suwannee The HCHS boys basketball team defeated cross-river rival Suwannee twice in 2017-18, including a backand-forth game on Feb. 3. Playing in front of a huge home crowd and packed gym, Javiel Jones went for 25 points in the Trojans 65-55 win on Senior Night. 2. Whittington hired Ric Whittington was hired as the new head football coach in March. Whittington, who was a defensive coordinator at Williston and Bell pre viously, is the Trojans fourth head coach in the last 10 years. 1. Playoff streak continued Just 10 days after defeating SHS on senior night, the Trojans won another big game this time with their season on the line. HCHS topped Lafayette in a district seminal to earn a seventh straight trip to the state playoffs. The Hornets were tough, but the scoring of Jones, Nick McClain and Tony Stock ton propelled Hamilton County to the playoffs. Continued From Page 1B Best happy, Ellefson said. Shes also proud to represent a town that is passionate about sports and a school rich in ath letic tradition. I can go down to Lakeland and say Im from Mayo. Its your name, but its also where your town is. Ellefson, a Florida South Western State college softball signee, was an easy choice. She hit .441 with seven home runs and 27 RBIs in just 20 games (she missed the start of the season because of the bas ketball playoffs). In the circle, Ellefson struck out 74 hitters in 56 1-3 innings pitched while sporting a 2.49 ERA. It was a no-brainer that she was an all-star for softball, and volleyball, where she was a standout outside hitter for the powerhouse Hornets. Basketball, though, was a little surprising. Ellefson only began playing competitively as a junior. But even with little experience, she quickly emerged as a top player, com bining incredible athletic abili ty with a competitive spirit. Its a once in a lifetime thing to have a young lady that is capable of doing it, LHS softball coach Tommy Cham bers said. It just shows how dedicated she is to be able to do it in three sports. For her to rise and shine above the girls that have been playing bas ketball their whole lives, its a plus that shes that type of athlete. Shes the type of athlete that was driven to win at a young age. When she was playing kickball and dodge ball in elementary school, Ellefson always wanted to be the rst pick. And she didnt shy away from competing against the boys. I was always competitive and there was no holding back against the boys, she said. I love winning. In an age where many ath letes choose to specialize in one sport, Ellefson has gone the opposite direction. Soft ball has always been her best sport, but that hasnt kept her from competing in other sports. Basketball helps with your core Ellefson said. Volley ball with your reactions on your feet. Ive always had college coaches tell me they love multi-sport athletes. Those little things and little skills you can do in other sports help with softball.

By Kyla Brewer TV Media Wealthy families make for excellent prime-time viewing, especially dysfunctional ones. Leave it to HBO to elevate the ensemble family drama to new heights as the cable giant takes a look at a family battling for control of a media Brian Cox (Troy, 2004) stars as Logan Roy, a selfmade billionaire who sits at the top of family-controlled media conglomerate Waystar Royco in the new series Succession, which begins its 10-episode run on Sunday, June 3, on HBO. As the aging patriarch approaches his twilight years, his potential heirs jockey for a position at the head of one of the biggest media and entertainment organizations in the world. The series was created by Oscar nominee Jesse Armstrong (In the Loop, 2009), who also penned the script for the pilot and serves as an executive producer on a team that includes Will Ferrell (Saturday Night Live), Adam McKay (The Big Short, 2015) and Frank Rich (Veep). McKay, who directed the pilot, explained the focus of the series in an HBO news release. Theres no question that Succession, at its root, is a family story, McKay noted. Theres also a tragic side to it, where you see how massive wealth and power distorts and twists and wounds this family. Set in New York City, HBOs newest drama takes a look at politics, money and power as the characters consider what the future might hold for them when Logan steps down from Waystar. Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong, Parkland, 2013) is Logans oldest son from his second marriage and heir apparent to the family business. Already a division president within the company, he seems poised to take over when Logan takes a step back. Kendalls younger brother, Roman (Kieran Culkin, Fargo), still sits on the board of directors at Waystar, though he no longer works there. Meanwhile, Logans sole daughter, Shiv (Sarah Snook, Predestination, 2014), has been focusing on her political career. Her ambitious partner, Tom (Matthew Macfadyen, Pride & Prejudice 2005), works as a senior executive at Alan Ruck (Spin City) stars as Connor, Logans only own way in New Mexico. The main cast also features Hiam Abbass (Lemon Tree, 2008) as Logans third wife, Marcy, a formidable force in her own right. The remaining staff includes COO Frank (Peter Friedman, Safe, 1995), who acts as a mentor for Kendall. Allesandro (Parker Sawyers, Southside With You, 2016) episode of Succession, the Roy siblings welcome cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun, Sky High, 2005) to the fold as he moves from Canada to New York to work in the theme park division. Other key players include Rava Roy (Natalie Gold, Rubicon), Kendalls estranged wife and the mother of his two children. As Kendall works to solidify his takeover of Waystar, he wheels and deals with Lawrence (Rob Yang, The Americans), the founder and CEO of a The ensemble cast is supported by a top-notch team behind the scenes, from an Oscar winner to television veterans. Creator Armstrong has been better known for his comedy work across the pond. Early on in his career, he wrote for the Channel 4 sketch show Smack the Pony with writing partner Sam Bain, with whom he went on to create Peep Show, The Old Guys, Fresh Meat and Babylon. Armstrongs other notable writing credits and the BAFTA-winning comedy The Thick of It. He also wrote an episode of the popular British anthology series Black Mirror and authored the 2015 novel Love, Sex and Other Foreign Policy Goals. Like Armstrong, McKays background is in comedy. He served as head writer for two seasons of NBCs legendary sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live, and hes directed a number of big-screen comedies, including Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004), Step Brothers (2008) and The Other Guys (2010). He and creative partner Ferrell founded the comedy website Funny or Die in 2007, along with Michael Kvamme and Chris Henchy. However, McKay has had success with his dramatic work as well, winning an Oscar for his work on Of course, TV fans have come to expect comedy from into more dramatic territory. He surprised audiences in Zeroville, which is expected to be released in 2018 or 2019. With a stellar ensemble cast and a strong crew behind the scenes, Succession seems to be poised for success, but it isnt the only series about ailing patriarchs and strife within wealthy families. FXs Trust followed the story of the Gettys, oil tycoons dealing with the kidnapping of J. Paul Gettys (Donald Sutherland, M.A.S.H., 1970) grandson. Foxs Empire has been chronicling the saga of hip-hop mogul Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard, Hustle & Flow, 2005) for four seasons. Now that both of those series have wrapped up for the season, viewers in search of more wealthy family drama can tune in to Succession, premiering Sunday, June 3, on HBO.
