JUNE 13 & 14, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 5A Healthy Living Time to address the other D word Do you know what D word Im referring to? No, its not diet. The D word Im referring to is discipline. Not the type of discipline where we correct our kids. The discipline I am referring to is more along the line of self-control and self-motivation to stay on track until we reach our goals. And thats not easy some times as we all know. How many times have you had some thing in the house that you REALLY want ed to eat but you knew you should leave it alone? For me, its chocolate. I swear to you if there is chocolate in the house, it calls my name every single time I walk by the kitchen. Denise. Denise. You know you want some of this chocolate. Of course I want some of that chocolate! Most of the time, I am able to ignore that pull and continue on my way. But other times knowing that chocolate is there really gets to me. I know I should toss it in the trash. Wait, I should take it out of the wrapper, smash it THEN throw it in the trash so I wont want it anymore. BUT my husband likes chocolate too so I leave it alone and go to battle with myself. Some times I may not win the battle but I will win the war! How? I know not to tell myself that I cannot have something. As soon as I tell myself I cant have some thing its ALL I can think about. To get through it, I tell myself to wait 10 minutes and go back to what I was doing. If I wait 10 minutes and still really want that choc olate or whatever is calling my name, I will allow myself to have it. What usually happens though? I forget about it because I stopped focusing on what I was telling myself I couldnt have. When you turn your attention away from a negative thought I cant have that to a positive thought if I still want it in 10 minutes, Ill get myself a piece it makes it easier to push through. Self-discipline is one of the hardest traits we have to learn but its im portant that we do so if we want to reach any of our goals. Here are a few tips for those days when you nd yourself looking for ways to push through: goals. For example, focus on a measurable goal such as I want to be able to walk one mile in three weeks versus I want to walk longer. By setting the dened goal to walk one mile in a set timeframe, you will push toward walking longer each week to reach your goal within three weeks. really cannot resist something, the best thing to do is simply remove it so its not easy to get to. of the time and allow 20 percent wiggle room. This keeps you on track but allows you a treat now and then. time to time. Forgive yourself and get right back on track. The only thing you need to focus on is being better today than you were yesterday. Dont worry about what anyone else is doing. Worry about what youre doing. Most important? Stop wishing and start doing. Get up, get moving and reach your goals! Have a wonderful week.

The news of Anthony Bourdains passing last week hit me pretty hard. It has been reported that he took his own life, which makes the news even harder to accept. I loved his show on CNN. I had just watched an episode I recorded on my DVR where he visits Seattle. In that episode, like many others, he meets interesting people, eats interesting food, and seems to have a great time. There was some thing about his narrative describing the places he visited that spoke to me. I saw him as the cooler version of myself I hoped to grow into. I consider myself pretty fortunate. I have more than I need and I am able to save some of my income for later use, but I would have traded places with Anthony Bour dain if given the chance. He got to travel the world, and got to eat and drink using money provided by the adver tisers to his show. The news of his death reminded me of the poem Richard Cory by Edwin Robinson. In that poem, a rich man who many people in town envied takes his life. I shared that poem with my high school English classes every year. That poem was written in 1897, and it is still hard for people to talk about suicide. It is denitely something we need to talk about now more than ever. The day before Bourdain died, the CDC released a report that found suicide rates increased more than 25 percent in the United States since 1999. There were increases in the suicide rate in 49 states during that time period. The majority of gun deaths in the U.S. are suicide deaths, but the less frequent homicides are more widely covered in the news. I have had the unpleasant experience of dealing with suicide in my family and in schools where I worked. I always wished the person would have talked to me, or that I could have seen some indication that suicide was being considered. My column this week was going to be about the soli tude one can nd on the Suwannee River on a weekday, but the news of Bourdains death caused me to instead write about a different kind of solitude. Some people still feel alone when they are in a room full of people. They have trouble making any meaningful connections, and feel that others just dont fully understand what they are going through. This is the solitude that we collectively need to try to slowly remove from our society. If we all just try and reach out to a person or two to really connect with it will help. This will be the last column I get to write before Fa thers Day, and I want to thank my father for something. If your dad was hard on you, I want you to call him on Sunday and thank him. My dad was hard on me some times. I got beatings I deserved and a few I didnt. That is the best preparation for life you can give your kids. The world will beat you down sometimes for things you did wrong and sometimes it will beat you down for no good reason at all. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator.

In conversations with most college ofcials, many CEOs, many politi cians and race hustlers, its not long before the magical words diversi ty and inclusiveness drop from their lips. Racial minorities are the intended targets of this sociological largesse, but women are included, as well. This obsession with diver sity and inclusion is in the process of leading the nation to decline in a number of areas. Were told how its doing so in science, in an article by Heather Mac Donald, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, titled How Identity Politics Is Harming the Sci ences (http://tinyurl.com/y9g8k9ne). Mac Donald says that identity politics has already tak en over the humanities and social sciences on American campuses. Waiting in the wings for a similar takeover are the STEM elds science, technology, engineering and math. In the eyes of the diversity and inclusiveness czars, the STEM elds dont have a pleasing mixture of blacks, Hispanics and women. The effort to get this pleasing mix is doing great damage to how science is taught and evaluated, threatening innovation and American compet itiveness. Universities and other institutions have started water ing down standards and requirements in order to attract more minorities and women. Some of the arguments for doing so border on insanity. A math education professor at the University of Illinois wrote that mathematics itself operates as Whiteness. She says that the ability to solve algebra and geometry problems perpetuates unearned privilege among whites. A professor at Purdue Universi tys School of Engineering Education published an article in a peer-reviewed journal positing that academic rigor is a dirty deed that upholds white male heterosexual privilege, adding that scientic knowledge itself is gen dered, raced, and colonizing. The National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health are two federal agencies that fund university research and support postdoctoral education for physicians. Both agencies are consumed by diversity and inclusion ideology. The NSF and NIH can yank a grant when it comes up for renewal if the college has not sup ported a sufcient number of underrepresented minori ties. Mac Donald quotes a UCLA scientist who reports: All across the country the big question now in STEM is: how can we promote more women and minorities by changing (i.e., lowering) the requirements we had previ ously set for graduate level study? Mac Donald observes, Mathematical problem-solving is being deemphasized in favor of more qualitative group projects; the pace of undergraduate physics education is being slowed down so that no one gets left behind. Focusing on mathematical problem-solving and ac ademic rigor, at least for black students at the college level, is a day late and a dollar short. The 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress, aka The Nations Report Card, reported that only 17 percent of black stu dents tested procient or better in reading, and just 7 percent reached at least a procient level in math. In some predominantly black high schools, not a single black student scored procient in math. The academic and fed eral STEM busybodies ought to focus on the academic destruction of black youngsters between kindergarten and 12th grade and the conferring of fraudulent high school diplomas. Black people should not allow themselves to be used at the college level to help white liberals feel better about themselves and keep their federal grant money. Mac Donald answers the question of whether scientif ic progress depends on diversity. She says: Somehow, NSF-backed scientists managed to rack up more than 200 Nobel Prizes before the agency realized that scientic progress depends on diversity. Those un-diverse sci entists discovered the fundamental particles of matter and unlocked the genetics of viruses. She might have added that there wasnt even diversity among those white Nobel laureates. Jews constitute no more than 3 percent of the U.S. population but are 35 percent of American Nobel Prize winners. One wonders what diversity and inclusion czars might propose to promote ethnic diversity among Nobel Prize winners. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

JUNE 13 & 14, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 7A Around the Banks Rolling on the (Suwannee) River And were rolling, rolling, rolling, yeah, rolling. Rolling on the river. Lyrics from Proud Mary, written by John Fogerty Numerous individuals have given the above lyrics the good old college try, but that song, in my opinion, will for ever belong to Tina Turner. Tina could tear Proud Mary up when she was with Ike Turner. What a song!! What a voice!! That gal could move more ways in a pair of high, high-heeled shoes, well, to watch her entertain was and, still is a marvel. What a river, our own beloved Suwannee River. The title of my article is Around the Banks of the Suwannee. There are sev eral Florida counties through which the 250-mile stream ows: Hamilton, Co lumbia, Suwannee, Madison, Lafayette, Gilchrist, Dixie before emptying in the Gulf of Mexico. The river, with its dark, tannic colored waters. Now I am not writing this article to give you a history lesson nor a geog raphy lesson, but I am writing it to let you know what the Suwannee means to some of our local citizens: When we were coming up, our vaca tion was going to the Suwannee River and swimming while Daddy and my Uncles went shing. Usually they had good luck, and they would clean those Suwannee River catsh and bream, and Mama and my Aunts would fry them right there not around but on the banks of the Suwan nee River. Our lives were simple, and we didnt have a lot of money, but oh did we laugh and have a good time. I look back on those days now as some of the happiest ever. When its all said and done, theres no substitute for feeling loved, and I sure felt that when I was with all my family, swimming, running, playing in the water, eating sh and grits and hush puppies, good memories. I guess the thing I remember most about the river is that I was baptized in it. I was about 12 or 13 years of age, and it was during the spring of the year. The river was not out of the banks, but I remember being dressed in a white robe and my head was tied up in a white turban, and those members of the church including so many of my loved ones stood on the banks of the river and sang the old spiritual Wade in the Wa ter. Wade in the Water Children. Wade in the Water. Gods gonna trouble the water. I can still hear those voices, and I can still remember how cool the water was, and how I felt when I came up af ter being baptized, and there was a shout of Hallelujahs and Amens. The river, to me, is not just a place of recre ation. To me, the river is, well, almost sacred, I wonder, how many individuals just like me have had those cool waters engulf them, as their baptismal waters. When I think about the river, I think about the hours and hours I have spent on the Suwannee River shing. As much as I love to sh, I love the beauty of the river just that much. Theres always a sameness and a peacefulness to it, but theres always something new. NO matter where we were traveling as children. We would cross the Suwan nee River, and our father would begin singing a very off key version of Way down upon the Suwannee River, and we would all join in. Daddy couldnt carry a tune in a bucket, but I can still hear him singing it with everything he had, and we all got a kick out of it. GREAT memories. There is nothing like the peace of being in a canoe or kayak on the Suwan nee during the autumn and enjoying the beauty of the leaves. Everyone feels you must travel to the mountains to enjoy the fall foliage. I have seen some pretty breathtaking sites here on the Suwannee River during the fall of the year. Years ago when we worked in tobac co, we couldnt wait to get off and bust the river wide open. Each day wed go swimming, and whoop, holler, and oh, that cold water felt so good after a day of all that heat and sand. I wish I felt the way I felt then. Wonderful memories. I remember having my sixth birthday party with a picnic down at Suwannee River State Park at Ellaville. We had a ball. My birthday is in the early fall, and that has been many years ago now. I can remember walking with cousins, aunt and uncle over to old Drews Mansion, and the stories they told. The old place was pretty dilapidated then. As an aside, I want to give Eric Mus grove a compliment on his article in the last weeks Suwannee Democrat about Governor Drew who built Drews Mansion. I learned a lot from that arti cle, and it was very interesting. Another thing that always reminds me of the riv er is the title of the newspaper in Live Oak Suwannee Democrat. Many years ago a New York jour nalist, James Craig who wrote for a newspaper, now defunct The New York Telegram and Evening Mail wrote the following, and I love it: The real Suwannee River does not rise in any part of Georgia. It rises in the highest mountains of the human soul and is fed by the deepest springs in the human heart. It does not empty into any material sea, but into the glorious ocean of unfullled dreams. Many thanks to so many of my read ers for sharing their memories, and their thoughts. I appreciate this very much.

JUNE 13 & 14, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A State & Region stuart.taylor@ganews.com tom.lynn@ganews.com TIFTON, Ga. Annsley Mathis and Whitney Chung got into nursing for sim ilar reasons. For Mathis, it was simple: she liked taking care of people. For Chung, it was watching her grand mother deal with Parkinsons while living at a nursing home. I saw my grandmother deteriorate and people not care for her, Chung said. From a young age, I thought Id never let that happen to somebodys family member. That kind of pushed me to be come a nurse. Mathis started at Tift Regional Medi cal Center in 2015, in the Intensive Care Unit, where she still works today. One of about 700 nurses employed at TRMC, she is in charge of only one or two patients at a time. The job can be a kind of balancing act, with Mathis monitoring medicine levels, vitals, organs that are in failure, medi cines that could stress the kidneys. One 12-hour shift can nd her working with two patients. Another 12-hour shift, she may stay at the bedside of one patient the whole time, switching out medicines, administering blood. Chung has worked with surgery pa tients since she started in 2012. My patients are a lot less critical, Chung said. I can have ve or six pa tients Im taking care of that are relative ly stable. Besides nurses such as Mathis and Chung, TRMC employs 93 physicians, 81 advanced practice providers, which includes physician assistants, nurse prac titioners and certied registered nurse anesthetists, 636 other clinical personnel and 745 non-clinical personnel. The Tift Regional Health System, un der the direction of the Hospital Authori ty of Tift County, is Tift Countys largest employer. The next largest is the Tift County Board of Education, according to GeorgiaTrend.com. The hospital, which has an economic impact to Tift County of $551 million a year, is publicly owned and operated through the Tift County Hospital Author ity. For some, thinking of a hospital as the largest business inside a city can seem strange, but across the SunLight Projects coverage area, which includes Tifton, Valdosta, Milledgeville, Moultrie, Dalton and Thomasville, Ga., and Live Oak, Fla., publicly controlled enterprises such as hospitals, schools, colleges and military bases are some of the top ve largest em ployers in each city. They not only provide essential public services such as education, health care and security, but are crucial in attracting other businesses to the community. When a new business is considering moving to a city, it looks for good hospitals and good schools. In other words, public employers not only employ the most people, they incu bate the creation of more jobs by provid ing essential public services. For Mathis and Chung, at TRMC, their public service means working with r patients and their families on a regular basis. They have multiple roles to play: the role of navigator for families of patients, guiding them through whats going on, communicating everything to them; the role of counselor for emotional and grieving families; the role of teacher, talking families through the care the pa tient will need after release. They care for the families, in much the same way they care for the patient. Some shifts are quiet, though its an understood rule they never say that out loud during the shift. And then some shifts, they have to drop everything theyre doing and run. Mathis said she still remembers her rst code call. It was overwhelming, the rst cou ple, Mathis said. When you hear a code call, your heart drops into your stomach. You take off running. Theres a lot of emotions, a lot of things youve never felt before. A code call or a patient going code re fers to a patient who either cant breathe or whose heart has stopped or both. Its an all-hands-on-deck situation, with doctors, nurses and other personnel racing to tend to the patient. In these life-or-death situations, some one has to keep an eye on the time, liter ally using a timer. For example, there can be two medica tions that need to be administered, with a three-minute window between them. If the second medication is given too soon or too late, it can be fatal. And just like a medical emergency can be emotional for the family, it can be emotional for the medical team. Nobody sees that part, Chung said. They dont see the emotional toll or the stress or what goes on. On top of the emotional stress, nurses such as Chung and Mathis have to be well educated and trained to keep up with the daily demands. Those demands are on the increase as the need for nurses is expected to increase as many in the eld are reaching retirement age. In less than a decade, the nursing force at Colquitt Regional Medical Center is expected to shrink. And its not just that loss, as additional physicians come into Moultrie the demand for nurses will in crease. The hospital, the countys second-larg est public employer, has reached full ca pacity and, this year, hired a couple-doz en or so new physicians. A recent study indicates percent of our nurses will be out of the workforce in eight years, said Jim Matney, Colquitt Regionals chief executive ofcer. In the next ve years well bring on 35 new doctors, Matney said. Each physician we recruit creates 12 to 14 new jobs. With a new Philadelphia College of Medicine campus scheduled to open in August 2019, a short distance from the hospital, more newly minted interns will be working in the area. The idea is that some or hopefully most will stay in the region to set up a practice. The students who do residencies in the region could work in Moultrie or Albany, Thomasville, Tifton, Valdosta and other communities. The average wage for Colquitt Region al is $25 per hour, or about $50,000 per year, Matney said. Of job providers among public employ ers, the hospital is only eclipsed by the Colquitt County School System, which has some 1,500 employees. The third-largest Colquitt employer is the Southwest Georgia Community Action Council. Its 600 employees serve the down-on-their-luck and people who are less fortunate throughout the region. It operates Head Start centers throughout the area. Rounding out the top ve are the gov ernments of Colquitt County with about 250 employees, and Moultrie with 200. Being in second place is not so bad, Matney said. He predicted a job bump at Colquitt County High School and Southern Re gional Technical College to provide the science and practical education needed for students pursuing medical careers. I would imagine in our efforts well see both of them adding jobs, Matney said of the high school and hospital. ... The school system is going to need to grow as well. A strong education system can have a huge impact on a region, said John Craw ford, vice president for Valdosta State University advancement. VSU is the fourth largest employer in Valdosta with 2,311 employees. Beyond just the number of employees, the college recognizes the key role its professors and staff can provide to the community. One of the issues in our region is economic development, Crawford said. Well, we have a college of business with experts. Those experts can be used as a resource. The idea is that we can go into the community and research these chal lenges and nd a set of solutions that we can present to the community to make the lives of South Georgians better. VSU cant help but inuence the city and community, as it exists as a small town inside the city. Crawford grew up in a small town and said the VSU campus reminds him a lot of his hometown. Weve got about 11,000 students, plus our 1,500 employees on campus. Thats larger than many of the towns in Georgia, Crawford said. We have our own police force. We have an economic impact through payroll but also through the money our students pay into the com munity. He said he hopes businesses realize how VSU positively affects them. Vis its to ofces throughout the community demonstrate the impact of VSU. Many workers either went to VSU for their bachelors degrees or enrolled to further their education. VSU degrees hang on walls all across the city and county. The college also raises the quality of life for those living in Valdosta, Crawford said. Organizations such as the Valdosta Symphony Orchestra, Peach State Sum mer Theatre, the athletic program and the art gallery are unavailable in other South Georgia areas. Not only does VSU workforce bring dollars to our community, we bring diver sity of thought, Crawford said. I think thats really important for a rural area of Georgia. We have a really good diversity of ideas. That is a natural by-product of the university. In North Florida, the Suwannee County School District is also one of the top em ployers in the county. The 812 employees of the school district make it the sec ond-largest employer in the county. Its also the top public employer. Right behind it are the Suwannee Cor rectional Institution and the Suwannee County government, which employs nearly 500 people when combining all the ofces. Then comes Shands Live Oak Region al Medical Center with 400 employees, according to the Suwannee County Eco nomic Development ofce. When John F. Archbold had an emergency operation at City Hospital of Thomasville in the early 1900s, he thought the growing community needed a larger, more modern facility. In June 1925, John F. Archbold wit nessed the opening of the John D. Arch bold Memorial Hospital, a facility for which he had donated nearly $1 million to design, build and equip as a lasting memorial to his father. Archbold opened as a modern, 100-bed general hospital. Now, With 2,795 employees at its hos pitals, nursing homes and other medical facilities, Archbold Medical Center is Thomas Countys largest public employ er. In 2017, the medical centers economic impact was more than $707 million in revenue for the local and state economy. It also contributed more than $565 mil lion to the local economy during the same period. Betty Morgan, vice president of busi ness development at the Valdosta/Lown des County Chamber of Commerce, said South Georgia Medical Center serves as a huge engine for the community. SGMC is Valdostas second largest employer with 2,559 employees, accord ing to the chamber. Employees cover a wide spectrum of jobs. Kaitlyn Redish, communications coor dinator, said SGMC hires highly trained doctors and nurses but also has to hire a staff to keep the hospital well maintained and up to date. Morgan said the hospital nds the trained and educated workforce from the fourth largest employer in the city, Val dosta State University. Thats what we love to see our busi nesses do, hire our VSU graduates rather than see them go somewhere else, Mor gan said. Ross Berry, South Georgia Medical Center chief executive ofcer, said most of the hospitals caregivers are required to be clinically licensed. SGMC also has strong relationships with a number of nursing programs, colleges and technical schools in the region, including VSU and Wiregrass Georgia Technical College. Berry said SGMCs job is keeping the workforce of Valdosta and Lowndes County healthy, so employees can contin ue doing their jobs. He said the hospital is an important asset for the community when it comes to drawing new business es.

I consider it a privilege and honor to be the CEO and to be the custodian of that asset, Berry said. Lets be clear, though, South Georgia Medic Center belongs to the community, and it is im portant that SGMC deliver good quality medicine, that we become a regional referral system and that we remain inde pendent and strong. For Valdosta and Lowndes County, another attraction for potential business es is Moody Air Force Base, the coun tys No. 1 largest employer with more than double the number of SGMCs employees. The base employs about 5,500 people. This includes 4,766 active-duty military and 49 reservists. Moody also has 867 total civilians and 4,369 total depen dents. Not all of these are employed by the base, but each person contributes to the local economy in one way or anoth er. Moodys total economic impact is more than $532 million, according to Moody AFB Economic Impact State ment for Fiscal Year 2017. The average annual salary for employees at Moody is about $37,000 a year. The bases total payroll is more than $314 million. Morgan said most people in Valdosta have trouble thinking of Moody as a business, but the chamber is an advocate for the base and businesses looking to work with Moody. We have members come to us all the time saying, How do I get in touch with Moody? Morgan said. Moody is incredibly important to this community. We want to keep the base here and want the military members to feel welcome. The support is recognized and appre ciated by people at the base. Col. Jennifer M. Short, 23d Wing commander, said Moody could not succeed in its mission without the con tribution and support of the local com munities. We are proud to be a part of a com munity that faithfully and consistently supports our military, Short said in an emailed statement. The largest employers in Lowndes County form a thriving eco system. Airmen are stationed at Moody and form fami lies. Their children go to schools such as Lowndes High School or Valdosta High School, the fth and sixth largest employers, respectively. The children grow up, go to college and some are hired at SGMC as doctors or nurses. We, at the chamber, strongly support our large businesses, Morgan said. We will do whatever we can do for them. Small businesses are the back bone of our community, but you need that main structure. You need health care, education and secu rity. In Thomas County, the Thomas County School System is the second-larg est employer among public entities in Thomas County. It has 845 employees, said Dr. Dusty Kornegay, former county school system superinten dent, who retired May 31. Of those, 486 are certied employees and 359 are non-certied. The average salary is $38,643, or $743 weekly. In 2016, the average weekly salary in Thomas County was $833, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. We have a wide range of positions that all support our operations from bus drivers to classroom teachers to administrators to nutrition workers to computer and maintenance technicians, Kornegay said. It is hard to say what the average employee does. I would say the average employee supports the districts instructional program. Class room teachers form the core of our work force. Since 2009, teachers have received a 2 percent raise. Kornegay said stagnant wages are making it increasingly difcult to recruit and retain quality teachers. County school systems were formed by an act of the state legislature in 1872. The school system serves more than 5,800 students in seven schools and manages a budget of more than $53 million. The school district is funded through local, state and federal funds and grants. Shelley Zorn, Thomasville payroll development executive director, said the school system has two major inuences. They employ a high number of cit izens, but even more important, they have the largest impact on our future workforce, Zorn said. Milledgeville and Baldwin County un derstand the importance education plays on the local economy. According to the most recent data available from the Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce, the top two employers are Georgia College and the Baldwin Board of Education. Public organizations make up six of the 10 largest employers in Baldwin County, the data shows. Rounding out the top ve is the Bald win County government, which employs slightly less than 350 full-time employ ees. While most college and local gov ernment employees are not rich, their salaries tend to hover around, or slightly more than, Baldwins $52,837 average Continued From Page 8A Public CNHI State Reporter ATLANTA Much is at stake for Georgias agricultural industry in an in terstate water dispute pending before the U.S. Supreme Court. Georgia has so far emerged on the winning side of a case that centers on Floridas claim that its northern neigh bor is not allowing enough water to ow south to the Apalachicola Bay, which Florida claims has devastated its once-thriving oyster industry. Florida ofcials are arguing that southwest Georgia farmers, as well as Atlanta homeowners and businesses, are allowed unchecked water use. They are pushing for a court-ordered cap on water consumption that they argue is needed to save its bay. But that proved an unconvincing argument to a court-appointed special master, Ralph Lancaster, who concluded last year that Florida had not adequately proven its case or shown that such re strictions on Georgians would help. Still, the nations highest court has to sign off on Lancasters ndings. That decision is expected this month, al though the ruling wont be the nal word in a decades-long conict over water allocation. Other cases are pending at lower levels. The court could agree with the special masters ndings or reject them and possibly impose limits on Georgias wa ter use. Another potential outcome could be a directive for the special master to go back and delve more deeply into some unresolved questions. Observers have noted that several justices asked questions during oral ar guments in January that indicated their awareness of Floridas plight. Many of the questions were kind of implicitly acknowledging that there is this harm that Florida is suffering, said Gil Rogers, who attended the arguments and who is an attorney with the Southern Environmental Law Center, which is not directly involved in the case. But whether that rises to the level of a ruling that would address that harm just remains to be seen, Rogers added. Even Lancaster, the special master who sided with Georgia last year, did not hold the state blameless in his as sessment. It also appears that Georgias up stream agricultural water use has been and continues to be largely unre strained, Lancaster wrote. Georgias position practically, politically, and legally can be sum marized as follows: Georgias agricul tural water use should be subject to no limitations, regardless of the long-term consequences for the basin, Lancaster also wrote. But Jeffrey Harvey with Georgia Farm Bureau disagrees. Harvey said a moratorium on new irri gation permits for the lower Flint River Basin is a type cap that limits industry growth. So is the cost of irrigation, which runs about $8.25 for an inch of water per acre, Harvey said. A court-ordered cap, Harvey said, would do more than limit growth. It would force current farming operations to scale back water use, likely impacting production. Even if I knew it was 99 percent sure we were going to come out on top, I would still be worried just because this is so signicant to what we do, Harvey said of the case. It is on the minds of every producer, especially in southwest Georgia, but that effect will trickle throughout the entire state, he added.

State & Region rfnf annual income, according to the Milled geville-Baldwin Development Authority. Each of the countys largest employ ers are vital to Baldwins economic success, but few, if any, have a larger impact on the local economy than Geor gia College. Having operated in Milledgeville since 1889, GC has long served as an economic engine for Millegdeville by attracting both students and professors to the city. Worker salaries vary widely by department and title, with university President Dr. Steve Norman earning $314,000 a year. However, GC employ ees generally report satisfaction with their jobs. In my position, I get to bask in the accomplishments of all the folks in stu dent affairs, said Dr. Bruce Harshbarg er, GCs recently retired vice president of student affairs. My biggest accom plishment here has been talking really good staff and department heads into coming here and somehow managing to keep them from leaving. When you get a team together like that, youre no longer supervising. Youre out there trying to get impediments out of their way and getting resources to them. In Whiteld County, county schools are the largest employer with 1,626 em ployees, according to data provided by the Dalton-Whiteld Joint Development Authority. Dalton Public Schools is sec ond with 978 employees. Public works has the third largest number of employees, after the police and re departments. Dalton Public Works provides a crucial public service through street maintenance, such as trafc signals, signs and markings, stormwater system maintenance, and garbage and recycling pickup. We have dedicated crews, said Pub lic Works Director Benny Dunn, who has been with the department for 21 years and has been director since 2005. People are assigned to different divi sions. But if there is a need an emer gency, a storm, snow and ice we pull people from other divisions to go where the need is to help out. Dwayne Carvell, sanitation lead man, has been with Dalton Public Works for nearly 19 years and has worked in the sanitation division the entire time. We have roughly 30 employees, he said. It has changed a lot since I got here. Weve gone to the automated, onearm trucks. We have more equipment and are more advanced. We service about 7,000 homes collecting garbage and about 4,100 take part in our curbside recycling program.

JUNE 13 & 14, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 10A Mayo Free Press by the Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce on Mon day. I just want to show my appreciated for Cheth (Plaugher) and his K9 pup and everybody in here, because everybody had a piece of this to bring it to this conclusion, Suwannee County Sheriff Sam St. John said before giving Plaugher a certicate and Huk a pail full of treats. Huk, a 2-year-old Bel gian Malinois and German Shepherd mix from Hun gary, didnt say anything, but he did happily greet anyone close. Plaugher, though, said the honors and accolades were much appreciated especially considering all the hard work done by the Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce and Alachua County Sheriffs Ofce that led to the capture. You almost feel bad, he said, adding that Alach ua County had exhausted their canine units the pre vious night during the full day search for the suspect. You all did a tremendous amount of work. Weve heard all the legwork that you all did and then Ala chua doing all their hard work tracking. We just kind of came in at the end and got all the glory. St. John added: They were proud to be able to go in and catch the bad guy for us. They arrived in Micano py early May 30 and after a brieng on the suspect, Huk entered an abandoned house within the perimeter where authorities believed the suspect was hiding. Plaugher said it didnt take Huk long to nd the scent he was after. We deployed Huk inside the house and he very quickly identied an individual that turned out to be the suspect, he told those gathered Monday from the SCSO at the Judi cial Annex. Huk wouldnt leave the bathroom, so we gave him the command to encourage what hes doing. A few moments lat er we heard screaming. It sounded like a male subject saying he surren dered. Gutierrez had evaded authorities throughout the day May 29 after he ed to Alachua County instead of meeting with Suwannee County investigators in re gards to the disappearance of his girlfriend, 32-yearold Delia Cruz. Cruz had been reported missing the day before after Gutierrez said she had walked away from the residence in southeastern Suwannee County on May 27. While in Alachua Coun ty, the suspect met with his sister and confessed to her that he had killed Cruz and buried the body. Authorities found the body in the evening of May 29 near the residence. The suspect was found the next morning in Mi canopy. He was far from the rst suspect captured by Huk, who has been active since January after training for basically eight months. Plaugher said Huk, who is patrol certied through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and also conducts sweeps for explosives at major events in Jacksonville, has made 28 apprehensions with ve engagements, where the suspect is physically taken into custody. Gutierrez is currently being held in the Alachua County Sheriffs Ofce on charges of burglary: unoc cupied dwelling, unarmed; resist arrest: obstruct with out violence; burglary: dwelling, structure or con veyance armed; and lar ceny: grand theft 300 less than 5k dollars. Once he faces those charges, hell be returned to Suwannee County for additional charges.

Organized by teachers Tina Roush and Jennifer Winnett, BES adopted 14 ofcers from the Suwannee County Sheriffs Ofce, Lafayette County Sheriffs Ofce and Flor ida Highway Patrol and donated a bag of goodies to eachs local ofce. The program began as an idea to honor the local ofcers, but according to Winnett turned into much more. Children learned the value of giving to others, learned how important our men and women in uniform are, and were given valu able time to bond with these local heroes, Winnett said. With donations from local businesses, parents, children and teachers, the school was able to donate goodies and gift cars to each ofcer. The Rotary Club of Branford donated popsicles for the program fundraiser that raised nearly $500. The BES Student Council and Safety Patrol donated gift cards and bags, Goo-Good Car Wash donated car fresheners and Just Teasin Hair Salon and Main Street Station donated gift certicates. Brian Barrs was the programs liaison with the SCSO. Ofcers adopted include Barrs, Zack Clark, Brad Minks, Caleb McInnis, Jeff Miria, Joe Carey, Kyle Durr, Chris Ferguson, Justin Stout, Clayton Watson, Jose Garcia and Jacob Williamson with the SCSO. Jay Harris from the LCSO and Ethan Sumner with FHP were also adopted. Winnett said the project was a success and the school hopes to honor the local heroes again next year. bbbbtb rbnb nbbnbn 99495-1 73473-1

Being an on duty Dad is no small task, but one that is vitally important. It is Dads responsibility to provide for and pro tect their children until they are ready to do that for them selves. So, whether you are waiting up for your son to bring the car home in one piece or taking the keys because he missed curfew, your inuence is absolutely necessary! Psalm 127:3 says that Sons (and daughters) are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Who doesnt agree with this verse while holding a sweet newborn in their arms? But as they grow up and begin to struggle against their parents rules, it can be difcult to see them as a reward! Responding to a childs disobedi ence is frustrating and often leaves us wanting answers. The good news is that these are answers the Bible clearly gives. Hebrews 12:11 states: No discipline seems pleas ant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. The most obvious point in this verse is that discipline will not be fun. Not for the giver or the receiver, but it is necessary for training. This training marks the difference between discipline and punishment. Punishment focuses on what the child did wrong and making them pay for disobedience, while discipline focuses on training and teaching the child to choose what is right next time. The harvest that discipline produces is de sirable in the life of every child: righ teousness and peace. Righteousness is the ability to make wise choices that while difcult, keep us in right stand ing with God and others. Teaching a child to do what is right at a young age makes it easier for them to choose right as they grow into adulthood. Even in the midst of difcult circumstances, they will then experi ence the peace that comes from a clear conscious. Discipline your son, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to his death (Proverbs 19:18); Discipline your son and he will give you peace; he will bring delight to your soul. (Proverbs 29:17) As Fathers, you will grow weary at times trying to disci pline your children, especially living in a culture that con Heart Matters Dads must provide discipline, protection demns this practice. It will be easier at the time to give in, but failing to correct a child allows disobedience. You may avoid a temporary battle, but will lose the war in building self-control and responsibility within the child. This al lows them to travel a path that leads to the destruction of their relationships, reputations, health and possibly their lives. Avoid the desire to be friends with your children until after they are adults. This will come as a result of the respect gained though the hard work of being their Dad when they are young. Consistent, loving discipline ultimately teaches our chil dren how to discipline themselves and guard their hearts from the consequences of bad choices. This is the result we are looking for, because their hearts really do matter!

Lafayette, facing some much bigger schools in a 7-on-7 competition held at Columba High, finished the day with a 3-2 record. The Hornets took fourth place in the FHS 7V7 Northwest Regional Qualifier and earned a spot in the state championship series which will be held June 27 in Haines City. Overall, it was a great experience for us, said Lafayette coach Joey Pearson. As many young guys as weve got, to compete against this level of competition and make it to the final four we had a good day.

The 2018 ROAR Fuel Off Road 8th Scale Nationals is being hosted by the Gateway RC Club at the Southside RC Raceway, located at the Southside Sports Complex in Lake City. The event is being held at 1963 SW Bascom Norris Drive from Thursday through Sunday. Come watch as this competi tion quickly turns into a thrilling, two-driver race. RC racing is both compelling and addictive. The event is being headed up by Gateway RC Club member Brian Lewis, who is also the east coast team manager for Pro-Line Rac ing, a well-known company in RC racing cries circles for remote-con trolled vehicle performance parts and accessories. Lewis is enthusi astic about the event and has been working diligently, along with the Gateway RC Club and Columbia County Parks and Recreation, to en sure the best possible experience for participants and spectators. This is a family oriented event. Bring out the kids but it will also bring out the kid in you, Lewis said. These participants are world class racers. Think of going to a NASCAR race you would nd the same passion, but just big ger cars. Of primary importance for a great race is a skillfully designed and con structed track that not only meets technical expectations for the com petition, but is a lot of fun. This job was entrusted to Joey Christensen of Helmet, California, owner of The Dirt Racing, who has built RC race tracks around the world. This race track will be of the highest quality, which is what you expect at such a high level race. Races will be classied according to the type of car (buggy or truck) and the drivers skill. Before the start of each race, the pit crew will hurry out onto the track to position the cars. Drivers will control the cards from up in a stand. And just like NASCAR drivers, they are trying to get more alps in a given amount of time than anyone else. A precision monitoring device keeps track of the laps per car. The public is invited to come out and meet the drivers. Talk with them and see what the excitement is all about. With a world-class track and diligent preparation, this fami ly-friendly event is sure to be loads of fun for all ages. Plus, the event is free.

Hearing decits may occur from birth or be acquired due to injury or prolonged exposure to loud noises. e National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders says approximately 15 percent of American adults (37.5 million people) aged 18 and older report some trouble hearing. Age is the strongest contributor to hearing loss, with people age 60 and older with the highest levels of impairment. People with hearing decits can access a growing number of assistance devices which make their lives easier: from telephones and doorbells that trigger a blinking light rather than a bell; to closed captioning and voice-to-text conversion; to a greater understanding and widespread usage of sign language. e deaf and hearing impaired have many options which help them overcome hearing loss. As technology advances, so also, do the options for the hearing impaired. One innovative piece of gadgetry is sophisticated wireless hearing aids that are compatible with personal electronic devices. anks to Bluetooth technology, hearing aid manufacturers are harnessing this science to expand the abilities of hearing aids and to develop new products. In the past, in order to use an MP3 player or mobile phone, a person would need to remove traditional hearing aids to accommodate a pair of earbuds. Furthermore, hearing aids may have had their limitations in ltering ambient noise. Although Bluetooth-powered hearing devices are still in their infancy, Oticon, a global hearing technology company, has developed their own communication and entertainment solution called ConnectLine that enables people to connect hearing aids with dierent devices. is transforms hearing aids into a personal wireless headset for listening to music, watching television or video chatting. Many other companies, such as ReSound and Starkey, also oer Bluetooth-enabled devices. eir devices may be compatible with Android and iPhone models, some of which may only require an app or direct connectivity to the device. In fact, Apple has patented a specic Bluetooth connectivity with certain hearing aid manufacturers. Others may require an accessory of some sort to make connections possible, especially when pairing with a TV or other audio device. anks to cutting edge technology, assistive listening devices have improved considerably. Individuals should speak with their hearing care professionals about their daily needs concerning hearing aids and explore the options in wireless hearing aid technology that can work seamlessly with their devices.

After years of schooling that dates all the way back to preschool or kindergar ten, newly minted college graduates are nally ready to begin their profes sional lives. That can be a scary prospect for some students, especially those who graduate without jobs lined up. The summer after graduating from college can be a time like no other in the lives of new graduates. It can be easy to grow dejected as weeks or months go by without receiving a job offer. But spending the summer after graduation as productively as possible can help graduates overcome any dejection they might feel and increase their chances of landing a job. ces can help recent graduates as they look for their rst jobs out of college. Such ofces may have access to job and internship opportunities that grads do not. In addition, they may coach grads on interviewing techniques and on ways to stand out in crowded job markets. time employment is proving elusive, dont be afraid to seek and ultimately accept internships, which can provide a way for grads to get their foot in the doors in certain industries. Summer internships may already be lled, so scour job boards for fall or winter in ternships. terned can get in touch with their past supervisors or mentors and nd out if the company is hiring. Such people may be more inclined to bring some one with direct experience onboard even if that experience was brief and unpaid. In addition, grads can connect with adjunct professors who work in their desired elds. pigeon-holed by your major. Just be cause a student graduates with a par ticular degree does not mean he or she needs to look for work in that eld. In fact, many companies may prefer entry-level applicants with degrees that are not specic to their industries so their new hires are blank slates who can be easily trained. uates may be taking the summer off, enterprising grads looking for work should attend as many job fairs as possible. Graduates likely wont leave job fairs with employment offers in hand, but job fairs are a great way for grads to meet hiring managers and submit their rsums to potential em ployers. Be sure the curriculum vitae is not each job you apply for, mildly tweak ing the wording or accomplishments to address the key phrases used in the job listing. It can be tempting for recent college grads to spend the summers after grad uation relaxing, but those who spend that time productively may lands jobs more quickly than those who do not.

JUNE 13 & 14, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 14B Statistical fantasy baseball offers more optimism than playing for points, but can be overwhelmingly frustrating in certain categories. If you dont draft stolen bases, then youre mostly out of luck. Of all the categories in fantasy baseball, stolen bases is the most elusive. And it can be costly for your overall team production. Finding stolen bases is a give and take, since most of the time, the speed ster available on the waiver wire is going to be atrocious in other categories. If youre missing that one piece to your fantasy baseball team and in search of a stolen base or two in the coming weeks, heres two options to consider on the fantasy baseball waiver wire. Mallex Smith, OF, Tampa Bay Rays Smith has plenty of upside, especially with the trade of De nard Span. Without Span in the lineup, ex pect Smith to start gar nering more looks as the leadoff hit ter, making him even more valu able than he previously was while sitting on the waiver wire. Hes owned in just 25 per cent of leagues on ESPN.com, and thats a bit surprising, since he has a .279 batting av erage to go along with 11 sto len bases, tied for 10th-best in Major League Baseball. Whats great about Smith is that he isnt going to bog down your lineup in batting average, much like Billy Hamilton and other stolen base aficionados do. In lim ited action last year, Smith registered a respectable .270 batting average. He has 17 runs this season to go along with 12 RBI, which arent great, but at least serviceable to go along with his stolen bases. With little attention, Smith offers hope in the stolen bases category and has plenty of upside as the season continues. Jose Peraza, SS/2B, Cincinnati Reds Peraza is another young guy, but hes already shown a consistent ability to swipe bases in his career. In two previous seasons in Major League Baseball, he has a combined 44 stolen bas es. Hes on pace to continue that trend this season with nine stolen bases this season. Whats nice about Peraza, too, is that hes not going to be terrible in other categories. Hes not great, but not terri ble. He has a career batting average of .272 (not horri ble) to go along with 30 runs already this season, a solid number for being a dual posi tion player. Hes not going to contribute in RBI or home runs, but hes a solid value in runs and sto len bases. If youre looking to upgrade the stolen bases cate gory, give Peraza a chance.

The ris ing senior caught 17 passes in the five total games and tallied 216 yards. He grabbed five of Lafayettes nine touchdowns on the day. Quarterback Jaxson Beach got everyone involved, con necting with nine different receivers, including five passes to Garris Edwards. Edwards hauled in a 30-yard TD in the first game that helped LHS top Florida High 7-0. In the second game, the Class 1A Hornets went on to defeat another Class 3A opponent in Newberry, 14-6. After going 2-1 in pool play, LHS beat Vernon 22-16 in a back-and-forth game to make it to the final four. Massey caught the game-winning TD against Vernon with less than a minute left. Lafayettes only losses came to Columbia, falling 21-12 to the Tigers in pool play and then 14-6 in the final four. Continued From Page 1B Hornets Take a hunter safety class this summer! Hunting teaches patience while fostering one of the closest relationships we can have with the natural world around us, said University of Florida ris ing sophomore Hanna Hodges. Hunting also contributes to con servation. Hodges loves hunting for deer and turkeys with her family and boyfriend, and enjoys introduc ing new people to hunting and taking youth on their rst hunting trips. However, that hasnt al ways been the case for Hodges. As a young girl growing up in a family that enjoys the outdoors, Hodges spent many weekends shing, boating, kayaking and hiking. But, she admits she was intimidated by some of the ele ments of hunting, and credits her father and the hunter safety class she took at age 10 for giving her knowledge and condence to safely develop what became her greatest passion. My dad rst introduced me to target shooting and hunting he was a great coach, Hodges said. He actually introduced my mom and brothers, too and now hunting is a family affair. Hodges father signed her up for a weeklong Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis sion (FWC) hunter safety camp at the Beau Turner Youth Con servation Center during the sum mer before her sixth-grade year. It was a great experience at tending the hunter safety summer camp at Beau Turner, Hodges said. I made numerous friends there and loved it so much that I volunteered there for several years. Growing up in a hunting fam ily and attending hunter safety camp had such an effect on Hodges that she is now majoring in wildlife ecology and conserva tion and hopes one day to work in a eld that blends hunting and conservation. And for this sum mer, she is proud to announce she will be a hunt camp coun selor at the place where it all got started for her the Beau Turn er Youth Conservation Center. For more information on the Center, which is east of Talla hassee, or to register your child for summer camp, go to BTYCC. org. If you havent completed the states hunter safety course re quirement, nows a good time to sign up. Many of these classes, offered statewide, ll up fast. People born after May 31, 1975, must complete the FWCs hunter safety class before they can buy the type of hunting li cense that allows them to legally hunt alone. If youre a youngster and al ready into hunting, I suggest you go ahead and take a hunter safety class before you turn 16. And you can purchase your very rst hunting license thats good until your 17th birthday. Even if you were born before June 1, 1975, and are ex empt from having to take the class, its still a good idea because youll learn so much. The FWC encour ages begin ning hunters to do so. Even the most experi enced hunters will learn some thing new, which will help them become even better hunters or mentors. If youre new to our state, these classes will make you aware of Floridas hunting laws. Or if you just relocated from another town, the classes are a great way to meet other hunters. You can make some new hunting buddies or maybe even get a line on a great hunt club thats look ing for new members. You can register for a hunter safety class by going to MyFWC. com/HunterSafety or by contact ing your nearest FWC regional ofce. Florida Virtual School Florida also offers a virtu al school outdoor education course. This course, which com bines hunting and boating safety, is free and open to Florida resi dents ages 12 to 18. Participants will develop out door skills and learn about the benets of physical activity while using proper safety procedures to experience a range of outdoor activities. By meeting all the require ments of the Outdoor Education course, students will receive their Florida Boating Safety Educa tion ID Card and be eligible to obtain a Florida Hunter Safety Certicate. Theyll also earn half a credit for high school, and meet public school requirements for taking an online course and a physical education course. Registrations for these instruc tor-led courses are limited. Those who are interested can nd out more at MyFWC.com/Hunter Safety. Online training and skills day A popular option for complet ing the hunter safety training is to take online training and a skills day. The online course is designed to help new hunters of all ages learn how to be safe and responsible hunters. Before you begin the online training, youll need to register to attend a skills day. Skills days are led by a corps of volunteer hunter safety instructors who give you the opportunity to demon strate the skills you learned in the online course. Skills day takes about ve hours to complete and includes time on the shooting range. During skills days, you get hands-on training and must demonstrate proper rearm and tree-stand safety. In the last hour of the skills day, youll be given a stan dardized test of multiple-choice questions. You need to score 80 percent or higher to successfully complete the course. The last steps After you pass the test for either course, youll be given a temporary hunter safety card. Youll receive a permanent card in the mail about four to six weeks after the class. Once the hunter safety requirement is met, you can purchase your rst Flor ida hunting license and be ready for opening day. Just a couple of things for par ents to remember: The course is designed for youth ages 12 to 16. If your child is younger than 18 years old, you must ll out our parental release form and present it to the instructor at all courses. Also, if your child is younger than 16, you are required to ac company him or her to all classes. Register to take a hunter safety class today, cause the 2018-19 hunting season will be here be fore we know it. Remember, safe hunting is no accident. Outta the Woods is a month ly column highlighting hunting opportunities in Florida. Written by Tony Young, media relations coordinator for the Division of Hunting and Game Management, the column provides easy-to-un derstand information about Flor idas hunting rules, regulations and quota-application processes. Collectors celebrate 50 years of Hot Wheels Joplin (Mo.) Globe JOPLIN, Mo. For a few minutes Tuesday, Jay McBee was a kid again. His beloved Red Baron was ripping up the liv ing room racetrack, performing better than a lot of other cars, such as Spittin Image, Beatnik Bandit and Dune Daddy. Eventually, it was time for Red Baron to face Red Baron. McBee positioned an orig inal Hot Wheels Red Baron model car in one lane of a track connected to his coffee table. In the other lane was a more modern reproduction of the original Red Baron. The reproduction handled the slope to the oor, the loop and the jump much better that the original, he noted. It was the rst time he had played with Hot Wheels in about 10 years, he said. And its not that different from when I was a kid, McBee said. I was guring out which car could handle the track, how to move the track. Its cool that its still fun. Toy company Mattel, fans and collectors are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic toy car. The company is holding spe cial events across the country, including one that was held last weekend in Bentonville, Arkansas, and releasing new versions of some of the original models the company produced models that McBee had as a kid. It really was the golden age of the muscle car, McBee said. Even though I was 10 at the time, I was starting to get an appreciation for the loud engines, the smoke and the burnout. Thats what Hot Wheels represented. Hot Wheels have been a toy-department staple since their debut in 1968. They were created by Mattel founder Elliot Handler, the husband of Barbie creator Ruth Handler, as an attempt to be a popular toy with boys. To beat other competing brands, Handler worked with a GM car designer and a rock et scientist to create a toy car that looked amazing and performed fantastically. The rst line, known as the Sweet 16, featured replicas of American muscle cars, as well as some imaginative creations fea turing aerodynamic design and large wind shields. Since then, more than 4 billion toy cars have been made, McBee said. Fans of the toy are legion clubs exist across the country, including in Kansas City, Springeld and Tulsa. Collectors across the country scour the shelves of toy departments seeking special collectible versions that Mattel releases alongside its regular lines. Some pickers offer their collections in ea markets across the region. Troy Ki nast, owner of Range Line Antique Mall in Webb City, features them in his store. Kinast said he usually buys complete collections from sellers seeking to liquidate all at once, then hunts for a few of the more rare versions in the lot. He keeps an eye out for treasure hunt versions, which are specially labeled models released in limited quantities. Those and red line versions which feature a red rewall on the wheels draw higher prices from collectors. The rest go up for sale and also become treats for well-behaved kids he spots, he said. Its almost like a Kleenex thing, where no one calls it facial tissue. Or Xerox, Kinast said of the toys. Hot Wheels have garnered that distinction. They werent the rst die-cast cars, but they have become the most popular. McBees collection isnt that big: He said he has about 50, in addition to plenty of orange track pieces and other memorabilia. He doesnt hunt down exclusive versions on eBay and leaves the store clerks alone on days when shipments come in. For McBee, Hot Wheels represent the ability to go back in time and remember when life was more simple. It was your age of innocence, McBee said. Everyone that lives this crazy life now has jobs, kids, taxes. But back then, all you had to do was have fun. rfnttbrrtrtttbnrrtrnrbtr trrttrfrtrtbtnbbtn rftftrbfbb
