LIVE OAK It was a surprise no one saw com ing as the revered small stage in the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Parks Music Hall was ofcially named The TeddyMac Stage earlier this month. The weekly karaoke night July 12 was very different from the usual karaoke singers, dancing with partners, good food, a great time line dancing and joining Ted TeddyMac McMullen to close out the evening. When TeddyMac called out for the rst singer, Steve Briscoe, he quickly learned that Steve, who oversees the Music Hall, does not sing. Instead, Briscoe took the mic and called TeddyMac to the center of the stage, an nouncing TeddyMacs dedication of 16-plus years on this esteemed stage had moved the Music Park to name the stage The Ted dyMac Stage. The honor came complete with a sign that Briscoe asked Teddy Mac to assist with placing at the front of the stage. The surprised audience cheered and clapped with absolute approval. The decision to name the distinguished stage the rst to be constructed many years ago at the SOSMP The Teddy Mac Stage came about due to Teds long history with karaoke on the stage. McMullen will soon begin his 17th year hosting the weekly karaoke, which at times has been held twice weekly. It is where the nationally famous Lewis Family of gospel music fame played to several hundred fans each January for many years until the group re tired. The Country Gentle men, Seldom Scene, Jim & Jesse, Chuck Wagon Gang, Little Roy Lewis and regionally popular groups the Boys from Indiana and Paul Adkins may have all played the small stage along with many other iconic blue grass, country and gospel artists according to historic accounts. The small stage has been the platform for greats for many years at the SOSMP but never had an ofcial name, according to Briscoe. I was totally shocked when Steve came on stage as the rst singer, McMullen said. When he said after 16 years of performing on the small stage.I was wondering if I was going to start the 17th year! It was a total shock! McMullen went on to say that when Briscoe told him and the audience the stage would now be known as The TeddyMac Stage, he couldnt believe it. I was so honored I got a little choked up, he said. I would like to thank all that have made this possible. Without all the great people participating this would not have happened. Thank you to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park for all you have allowed me to do here and for be lieving in me. A special thank you to all who have enjoyed the years here. May God bless you as He has blessed me. Every Thursday night for the past 16 years, Mc Mullen has held the Ka raoke Night in the Music Hall. His excellent work as one of Americas best Elvis Tribute Artists spills over into karaoke night as he opens and closes the evening with his awesome voice singing many Elvis songs, country and other genres of music. Because of TeddyMac, a SOSMP honors McMullen with The TeddyMac Stage huge number of dedicated fans come to sing, eat de licious food, visit with old friends, make new friends and most of all, dance the evening away and listen to TeddyMac sing every week. The group has now grown large in numbers and continues to grow weekly. Come join Ted Teddy Mac Elvis McMullen, his sweet wife Georgie who helps with the music, and the many singers who have a great time entertaining the audience where many of the Legends Show art ists were discovered at karaoke. Doors open at 5 p.m. for dinner, music starts at 7 p.m. for all TeddyMac events in the Music Hall.

Dairy Queens twin gar dens on either end of its driveway are abloom with vibrant Knock-Out roses looking down upon low growing beds of yellow lantana with a variety of palms and greenery in the background.

OBRIEN Suwannee County Fire Rescue crews responded to and quickly ex tinguished a re in a mobile home Saturday afternoon in southern Suwannee County. Light smoke was coming from inside the home on County Road 349, just west of U.S. Highway 129, when crews arrived around 2 p.m. Saturday. According to Suwan nee County Public Safety Director James Sommers, reghters from Engine 3 attacked the re and found it in the kitchen and quickly extinguished the blaze. Further investigation found that the home owner received a phone call while cooking on the stove and stepped away for just a moment. When the owner returned, the oil on the stove had caught re and gotten into the cabinet. Sommers said there was smoke damage throughout the home, but the re dam age was limited to the imme diate area in the kitchen. Nobody was injured in the re. SCFR stations 3, 2 and 1 responded as well as volun teer stations 43 and 51.

If you are tired of what they call the beach at Keaton or you have tried to nd the beach at Horseshoe Beach to no avail, I have just the place for you to try, and it is only about a three-hour drive from Live Oak. Mexico Beach, Florida, is a great place to go to see a nice, wide, white sand beach that does not have hard ly any tall construction to ruin the seaside view. There are some houses on the beach, but there are still some stretches where all you see from the road are sand dunes, seagulls and the Gulf of Mexico. There are many ways to get to Mexico Beach, but my favorite route starts by heading south towards Mayo on State Road 51. Once you cross the river, take County Road 536 to U.S. Highway 27. You will pass through Lafayette and Taylor counties. Dont worry; once you get past the pines and the prisons, the drive does start to get more scenic. When you get to Perry, stay straight on Hwy. 27 and it turns into Hwy. 98. You stay on this road all the way to Mexico Beach. If you get to Tyndall Air Force Base, you went too far. On the way, you will pass through Carrabelle, East point, Apalachicola and Port St. Joe. Each one of those towns has some interesting things to see and do, but none of them have a beach that compares to Mexico Beach. You might save a little bit of time driving on I-10 and then working your way south to Hwy. 71, but you can not even begin to compare the scenic nature of the two routes. You get to see so many vistas of the Gulf of Mex ico and some barrier islands meandering west on Hwy. 98. One of my favorite things about Mexico Beach is all of the public access boardwalks leading to the ne, white sand. They are spaced at regular intervals, and a decent amount of parking can be found along the road. There are several restaurants in the town of Mexico Beach, and the laid-back atmosphere and lack of tall buildings makes me feel like I am stepping back in time when I am there. There are very few beachfront areas left in Florida that do not have tall condos and hotels. It would be nice if Mexico Beach nds a way to resist the development that has marred most of our coastlines. Some of those houses on the beach can be rented. It is cheaper to rent one that is a block or two away from the beach. There is one beachfront motel called El Governor, but thankfully, it is only a few stories tall. There is also an RV park, if you want to bring your accommodations with you. Summer is nearly over, but there is still plenty of time to plan a trip to Mexico Beach.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf It is only a short drive to Mexico Beach Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers predicted that if Donald Trump were elected, there would be a protracted recession within 18 months. Heeding its experts, a month before the election, The Washington Post ran an editorial with the headline A President Trump could destroy the world economy. Steve Rattner, a Dem ocratic nancier and former head of the National Economic Council, warned, If the unlikely event hap pens and Trump wins, you will see a market crash of historic proportions. When Trumps electoral victory became apparent, Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman warned that the world was very probably looking at a global reces sion, with no end in sight. By the way, Krugman has been so wrong in so many of his economic predictions, but that doesnt stop him from making more shameless predictions. People whom weve trusted as experts have often been wrong beyond imagination, and its nothing new. Irving Fisher, a distinguished Yale University economics profes sor in 1929, predicted, Stock prices have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau. Three days later, the stock market crashed. In 1945, regarding money spent on the Manhattan Project, Adm. William Leahy told Pres ident Harry S. Truman, That is the biggest fool thing we have ever done. The (atomic) bomb will never go off, and I speak as an expert in explosives. In 1903, the president of the Michigan Savings Bank, advising Henry Fords lawyer not to invest in Ford Motor Co., said, The horse is here to stay, but the automobile is only a novelty a fad. Condence in the staying power of the horse was displayed by a 1916 comment of the aide-de-camp to Field Marshal Douglas Haig at a tank demonstration: The idea that cavalry will be replaced by these iron coaches is absurd. It is little short of treason ous. Albert Einstein predicted: There is not the slightest indication that nuclear energy will ever be obtainable. It would mean that the atom would have to be shattered at will. In 1899, Charles H. Duell, the U.S. commissioner of patents, said, Everything that can be invented has been invented. Listening to its experts in 1936, The New York Times predicted, A rocket will never be able to leave the Earths atmosphere. To prove that its not just academics, professionals and businesspeople who make harebrained predictions, Hall of Fame baseball player Tris Speakers 1919 advice about Babe Ruth was, Taking the best left-handed pitcher in baseball and converting him into a right elder is one of the dumbest things I ever heard. For those of us not familiar with baseball, Babe Ruth was one of the greatest outelders who ever played the game. The worlds greatest geniuses are by no means exempt from out-and-out nonsense. Sir Isaac Newton (16421727) was probably the greatest scientist of all time. He laid the foundation for classical mechanics; his genius transformed our understanding of physics, mathematics and astronomy. Whats not widely known is that Newton spent most of his waking hours on alchemy. Some of his crackpot experiments included trying to turn lead into gold. He wrote volumes on alchemy, but after his death, Britains Royal Society deemed that they were not t to be printed. Then theres mathematical physicist and engineer Lord Kelvin (1824-1907), whose major contribution was in thermodynamics. Kelvin is widely recognized for deter mining the correct value of absolute zero, approximately minus 273.15 degrees Celsius or minus 459.67 degrees Fahrenheit. In honor of his achievement, extremely high and extremely low temperatures are expressed in units called kelvins. To prove that one can be a genius in one area and an idiot in another, Kelvin challenged geologists by saying that Earth is between 20 million and 100 mil lion years old. Kelvin predicted, X-rays will prove to be a hoax. And he told us, I can state atly that heavierthan-air ying machines are impossible. The point of all this is to say that we can listen to ex perts but take what they predict with a grain or two of salt. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

An ad for Democrat candidate Phillip Levine who is running for Florida Governor has his mother at a bowling alley and stating that Mr. Levine will raise all teacher salaries by $10,000 and provide Medicaid for one million more res idents all without raising taxes. Conveniently the ad does not mention where he is going to get all this money without raising our taxes. According to the 2018 World Almanac there are 170,475 classroom teachers in Florida (page 378). To give all those classroom teachers a $10,000 raise would be an additional $1.7 bil lion. I would like to know where Mr. Levine plans on getting an additional $1.7 billion with out raising taxes. A quick Internet search shows that in 2014 Florida had a total of 4.4 million residents on Medicaid and a budget of $23 billion. That is over $5,000 per Medicaid recipient. Adding 1 million residents on Medicaid would be an extra $5 billion to the Medicaid budget. I dont think Florida has an extra $1.7 billion and $5 billion in the bank to take care of Mr. Levines campaign promises. Democrat candidate Mr. Jeff Greene from South Florida is also running for governor. His television ad cracks me up every time I see it. The ad shows President Trump playing golf and disrupting trafc in South Florida. If elected Florida Governor the rst thing Mr. Greene will do is prevent President Trump from coming to South Florida. Huh? I guess he could declare Air Force One a hostile aircraft and have the military shoot it down when it enters Florida airspace. I think that would nick some of the laws in the US Constitution though. I have no idea how Mr. Greene plans to legally prevent President Trump from coming to South Florida since he owns property there. If Mr. Greene knows how he will keep that campaign promise, I would love to hear it. These two Democratic candidates for gover nor must think the Florida voters are complete idiots if they expect us to believe their outra geous campaign promises.

It is the second rabies alert issued for the county in ve days with an alert issued Thursday for the southern portion of the county near Branford. All residents and visitors in Suwannee County should be aware that rabies are present in the wild animal population and domestic animals are at risk if not vacci nated, according to DOH-Suwannee. The health department asks the public to maintain a heightened awareness to rabies being active in the county, including those areas not named in an alert.

Donations from the public and big hearted people are what keeps this shelter in operation. Regularly brush your dogs coat to prevent knots and improve air circulation. rIt may seem like a smart idea to have your dog shaved when the weather starts to warm up, but this isnt a good way to help your pup beat the heat. Because dogs dont sweat in the same way humans do, their coat is actually vital to keep them cool during the summer. Your dogs fur acts as a protective barrier against the heat and helps keep your pups body cool. Dog hair traps moisture to insulate and natural ly refresh your pet. Pretty neat, right? Whats more, Fidos fur also shields him from harmful UV rays and insect bites.Dont shave your dog during the summer Does your favorite feline have a nasty habit of sharpening her claws on your chairs, couches and curtains? Dont declaw! There are much more humane ways to curb your cats destructive clawing. Here are two. PROTECT YOUR FURNITURETemporarily cover the parts of your furniture that your cat likes to sharpen her claws on with plastic, aluminum foil or double-sided tape. Mittens wont like this new texture and will be less tempted to sink her claws into it. BUY A SCRATCHING POSTGet your hands on one or more scratching posts and place them in strategic spots around the house. If your cat likes to claw the corner of your couch, for example, put a scratching post close by. To maximize your chances of success, make the post as appealing as possible by sprinkling some catnip on it. Finally, use positive reinforcement to teach your cat to associate using the scratching post with a pleasant experience. Give her a treat every time she uses it instead of your furniture. Be patient and dont give up, as it may take a few weeks before you see any results. Good luck! How can I stop my cat from scratching my furniture?

Start slowly, setting the alarm earlier until you reach the time youll be waking up for the school year. Parents can assist younger kids with this transition. 2. Get the right educa tion tools. From highlight ers to USB drives to looseleaf paper, be sure you have a comprehensive list of all the school supplies and education tools youll need for a successful year ahead. As far as tech tools like graphing calculators are concerned, opt for those that are jam packed with all the latest features. For example, the Casio fx-CG50 offers the ability to draw three dimensional graphs, such as planes, cylinders and spheres, and view them from various angles in order to better analyze their shape. It also features a cross-section option and a special zoom function for in-depth anal ysis. 3. Organize your agen da. Make sure everyone is ready for the busy year ahead. Plan your chil drens participation in after school activities. Then, display relevant items on a calendar where the whole family can see it to en sure no one misses a club meeting, rehearsal or team practice. 4. De-stress. The hectic back-to-school season can create tension and stress. Encourage hobbies that help students unwind as the school year gets back into full swing. For begin ners of music, check out new tools that can make the learning process fun and easy, such as Casios LK-265 keyboard, which features an LCD display that shows both music notation and correct hand positioning. 5. Get healthy. Crowd ed classrooms are a good place to pick up germs. Keep kids healthy with a daily multivitamin, plenty of fresh fruits and veggies and lots of sleep. Regular exercise is also an immu nity booster, so encourage kids to get active. 6. Adapt to new school resources. Families ar ent the only ones getting ready for back to school. Districts are incorporating the latest tech into class room learning. Such tools include Casio LampFree Projectors, an eco-friendly technology that gives edu cators the ability to control the projector from a smart phone or tablet, expanding their ability to create and deliver dynamic lesson plans.

L.M. Montgomery, The Story Girl Over the past several weeks and months I have heard some interesting quotes that keep going back and forth in my mind. Someone said to me not too long ago, You seem to live in a place where the past meets the present. I suppose that is true, but that quote is not unique. Anyplace one lives, the past meets the present in ones life, in ones everyday walk. I know what the person was getting at. If we un derstand the past and document it and analyze it, we can better know how it affects the present, and I believe it is true. The older we get the more likely we are to romanticize the past and paint a picture of it that is more idealistic. The reason for that is simple. When you reach a certain age, many times the happiest or most cherished times in ones life seem to lie in the past. I want to discuss those five senses in regards to my home this week, and how the past does meet the present. Sight: The sight of smoke rising from a barbecue grill signals thoughts of the past: family gatherings, reunions, class get-togethers, sometimes a time for joy, and, at other times, a time for mourning. In our home here in north central Florida, that sign has not changed over the past half-century. To day, in many cases, the sight of smoke rising from a grill or a smoker signals a time of fellowship, of rejoicing, and hope fully of memories being made that will provide sustenance and encouragement for days one needs it. Indeed, the past meets the present. Hearing: The sound of the whippoor will in early spring, as he sings his song that cold weather and hard freezes are over is still a clarion call. The song we hear today is from the heart and voice of a different whippoorwill than we heard in the days of our childhood, but the message is the same. A song of hope and renewal that the cold weather is past and that a time of fruitfulness and harvest will be upon our area. We can taste the fresh acre peas simmering on the stove, and we anticipate with joy familiar and recurring times of happi ness and joy. Smell: We will travel back to that barbecue grill, and breathe in the smoky and mouth-watering aroma of beef or pork or chicken grilling, and the beautiful, unmistakable aroma that floats one the air. We breathe in, and, at times are transported to another time, another place, somewhere in our past. The smoke is rising now, but we are transported, once again, to another time and place. Again, the past meets and melds with the present. Tasting: The taste of that first vine ripened tomato. We slice it, salt and pepper it, and, at times, we place it on a slice of white sandwich bread on which we have spread a generous por tion of good mayonnaise. We, then, cover the other piece of white bread with a generous portion, and we make that first, memorable tomato sandwich of the year and, with anticipation, we take that first bite. We think of times weve shared this simple, familiar fare with those we loved and have lost and with those who are no longer with us. It is the same with boiled peanuts, a homemade pound cake, and a sweet po tato pie. Any number of dishes that are dear to us, and our minds, at times do, indeed take that trip and never leave the kitchen counter. Again, the past meets the present. Touching: We touch the softness and the familiarity of a homemade patch work quilt. We run our hands over the individual quilt squares. As we touch each one, we think of a major event in life that caused that particular quilt square to be in place, someones wed ding, someones outfit from a first date, someones wedding dress, someones christening gown. We touch the cover of a family Bible, and we open the front of the Bible to read familiar handwriting from a grand mother or great-grand-mother, a record of someones birth, marriage or death. We remember cards sent to us with that familiar writing that ended simply, Love, Grandma. There was nothing simple in that ex pression nor the love they shared with you and for a moment you see her mak ing biscuit in a familiar kitchen, you feel her loving arms around you, as you sat in her lap in the old rocker before a fall or winters fire. You hear her songs to you, songs she shared with you. Whos been rocking my sugar dumpling? Whos been rocking my sugar dump ling? Whos been rocking my sugar dump ling? Turn, cinnamon turn. Again, my thoughts go to what the individual said to me: You seem to live in a place where the past meets the present, and, as I look at the same familiar river, the Suwannee, and its waters give me the same sense of peace they have for all my life. I realize the water is different, the tree next to me may be a younger tree, but the stream is the same, as well as the feelings. Truly, Theres no place like home. From the Eight Mile Still on the Woodpecker Route north of White Springs, wishing you a day filled with joy, peace, and, above all, lots of love and laughter. Friday Night Done Right attracts crowd WHITE SPRINGS The Hamilton County Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Coalition host ed a Friday Night Done Right event in White Springs on July 13.

Youre doing everything right. Youre watching what you eat. You are exercising every day. And what happens when you step on the scale to check your progress? Nothing. No change to those ipping little numbers from the last time you stepped on the scale. Its OK go ahead and scream. I have! Now that youve got the screaming out of the way, breathe. There is more to your health than those little numbers on the scale that aggravate us all so much. Are the num bers on the scale important? Yes, but they are only PART of your wellness equation. There are a few important numbers we should pay attention to such as our blood pressure, sugar glycemic index and choles terol. All three of these numbers tell a story about what is going on in our bodies. The higher these numbers, the higher your risk of future health problems. When your doc tor advises that any of these numbers are on the high side, listen carefully and focus on what he/she tells you to do to lower those numbers. Other numbers we may need to keep track of besides what we weigh are our measurements, BMI and even age. These numbers while important need to be kept in perspective and used as a guideline to help us on our health and wellness journey. Lets look at each one. make a grown man cry our weight. Hate to get on the scale? Me too! I tend to want to avoid the scale completely. When I do step on it, you better believe Ive stripped down to my birthday suit before I even place my little toe on it. Unfortunately by avoiding the scale I have actually harmed my journey more than helped it. Why? I would think I was on track when actually I was letting old bad habits creep back into my lifestyle. Some people like to weigh themselves daily. My mom is one. For me, I made the choice to keep track of my weight but to limit when I would weigh myself to no more than once a week. This keeps me moving in the right direction but also allows me to notice the non-scale vic tories such as looser clothes and increased energy to get through busy days. ments may actually be a better way to keep track of your progress versus the scale. Why? The scale might not move for a few weeks yet your clothes are getting looser. If stepping on the scale gives you anxiety or causes depression, taking your measure ments is a great alter native. It allows you to see that your hard work is paying off by the inches lost. Plus losing an inch in your waist is HUGE and may reect more prog ress than losing one pound. indicator of health and others are not as certain its a good indicator which is why we need to keep this number in perspective also. Your BMI is calculated by using your height and weight. BMI of 25 29.9 means you are overweight YET Ive seen people who are physically t land in this category. I have also seen two people in the same category yet physically they are complete opposites. excuse rather than as an accomplishment. Personally I feel better now than I did 20 years ago. Running a marathon and com pleting several triathlons including a tough gulf swim in Panama City Beach were not on my bucket list in my 20s, 30s or even my 40s. But I did complete them in my 50s. Ive watched people of all ages come out and participate in events never giving a thought to how old OR young they are. Their age does not stop them from doing what they set out to do. Dont let it stop you. Yes our numbers are important but its equally important to use these numbers to guide you rather than stop your progress. Keep putting one foot in front of the oth er and continue moving forward to your goals. And always remember YES YOU CAN. Have a great week.

The Message Bible translates Psalm 119:1-2 this way: Youre blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road re vealed by God. Youre blessed when you follow His directions, doing your best to nd Him. These verses launch both the longest Psalm and the longest chapter in the Bi ble, and introduce its repetitive meditation on the beauty of Gods Word. It is called a meditation because it considers all the reasons why Gods Word is so beautiful, and repetitive because His Word is men tioned in almost every single one of the 176 verses. As if that were not enough, these verses also have plenty in common with something the Apostle Paul penned centuries later in Philippians 3:13b-14: But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. (NIV) Compare the two passages. While a few obvious differences include the Psalms reference to you and Pauls reference is to I and me, and Paul sharing his spe cic life-goal rather than the entirety of Scripture. However, if we put these verses together something incredible happens. and a personal calling take us: forward. Staying on course and walking steadily on the road God reveals is the same direction as forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. While God may give us understanding about something behind us, it is not a path He would need to reveal to us if we have already been there. means not giving up and sitting life out on the side of the road. Much like straining toward what is ahead and pressing on to ward the goal, this journey will take some endurance. Living out your calling is not the easy way highway and it wont be all downhill or even level ground. Get ready to sweat and strain to get where you are going, because somedays the climb will be steep! tinue following His directions and living out our calling. Unfor tunately, many folks think that only preach ers or missionaries are called by God. But, the truth is this: If we are in Christ, we have been called, and our calling is not something we obtain and then maintain. We may not even know what to call our calling, but we can start now moving forward and doing the thing He puts in front of us to do today and tomorrow and the next day. If we still have breath, there is a reason we are here. Likewise, He has us where we are for a reason, and when He gets ready to move us, He will navigate that turn as well. Do ing our best means we wont do it perfect ly. Some days we will take a wrong turn or miss a turn, but we can trust He will recalculate our directions! So, stop wor rying you have somehow missed it and start living it out right this moment. While we are walking the thing out, not perfectly but by His grace, we get a glimpse of fullling why God has put us on earth. Walking out our calling brings us joy, purpose and energy. Is it a coinci dence those are the three things many of us feel are missing in our lives? They are within our reach. However, the prize that Paul talks about? We get that one when we cross the nish line of our calling only to hear Him calling us home. Our prize is there, when we will nally realize how much our hearts matter!

A DECISION on the proposed CAPITAL OUTLAY TAXES will be made at this hearing. 115658-1 JENNINGS The Ham ilton County Development Authority along with Duke Energy announced the se lection of nearly 470 acres in Jennings for inclusion in Dukes Site Readiness Pro gram on Monday. The program is intended to identify, assess, improve, and increase awareness of industrial sites in the Duke Energy service territory. We are thrilled to be working with Duke Energy to increase our communi tys competitiveness, said Susan Ramsey, Executive Director of the HCDA. Having a strong site is a fundamental element to luring a competitive project that will bring new jobs and capital investment to our community. The site, located near Jennings, consists of 468 upland acres proving I-75 frontage and easy access to I-10 and State Road 143. The site also boasts more than 260,000 people in a 30-minute radius, of which more than 27 percent have an associate degree or high er. Its strategic positioning along with the talent pipe line make it an ideal site for Dukes program and man ufacturers looking to take advantage of the states low tax burden. The goal of the program is to increase the inventory of quality industrial sites throughout the territories that Duke Energy serves, and to advance the state of readiness of these sites. It is not a site certication pro cess, but rather a program to help local economic devel opment organizations nd and prepare potential sites. Workforce development and available talent will attract companies to your community, but without a site or home for their busi ness, those companies are going to go elsewhere, said Marc Hoenstine, director of economic development, Duke Energy Florida. Site Readiness walks a com munity and the land owner through an evaluation of their property, providing recommendations and a vi sion the community can use to bring companies and jobs to the properties. To qualify for the Site Readiness Program a site must be a legitimate indus trial or data center site (usu ally 75 or more acres) and Duke Energy must either be the designated electric ser vice provider or at least be able to compete to serve the site. The site can either be a single site for a large facil ity or a potential industrial park (multitenant site). The Development Au thority Board along with local leadership are grateful to Duke Energy for this opportunity to improve our site readiness, said Nat Combass, Chair of the HCDA. This is another forward step for Hamilton Countys economic devel opment efforts. In addition to the Ham ilton County property, the other locations chosen for the program are in Volusia, Marion, Wakulla and Levy counties. Duke Energys Site Read iness Program was recog nized by Southern Business and Development magazine as one of the Souths Top 10 Site Programs and was noted as one of the main reasons Duke Energy was named as one of the nations Top 10 Utility Economic Development Programs by Site Selection magazine for the past sever al years. Duke Energys economic development efforts have helped attract and grow more than 270 companies in Florida since 2001, re sulting in more than 40,600 new jobs and $3.5 billion in capital investment in the communities it serves. The Site Readiness Program has resulted in 34 major project wins on sites across the Duke Energy footprint. These projects will create more than 6,800 new jobs and invest more than $7 bil lion in capital.

JULY 25 & 26, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 14A State & Region tom.lynn@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. Vietnam veteran Thomas D. Watson drove a tour bus for years. He was always away from home, on the road somewhere. Even on Election Day. His job made it difcult for him to vote on Election Day. So Watson takes advan tage of early voting, he said, to make sure his voice is heard. Im going to gripe about things, and if I dont vote then I cant gripe, Watson said. (Everyones) vote matters. For Moultrie resident Joe Amore, theres a simple reason to vote early: Something could go wrong on Election Day and ruin plans to make it to the polls. You never know what comes up on Election Day, said Amore, a pastor at Love Endures Ministries. A family emergency or other circum stances could interfere. Amore recom mends people vote early or use an absen tee ballot without waiting for Election Day. Weve done it in the last couple of presidential elections, he said. We try to avoid the long lines. If its given to you, take it. I think its great. Amore and Watson arent alone. Thomas County resident Debra Sauls said she always votes early. She said she nds it more convenient. So convenient that she has never even visited her voting precinct. It gives you a longer period of time you can do it, said Sauls, Thomas Coun ty deputy probate clerk whose ofce adjoins the elections ofce. Some people cannot get to the polls on voting day. Ev erybody cant do it that day. For Helen Crawford, president of the League of Women Voters in the Dalton area, early voting makes voting available to as many voters as possible. When the only time you could do it was a single Tuesday, the opportunity was certainly more limited, Crawford said. Speaking for myself and not for the league, I feel that a few weeks is ad equate. She said campaigning generally reaches a peak in the last few weeks before the election, so if someone votes too far out, they may not get all of the information they need. I think Georgias early voting strikes a good balance in terms of the amount of time it provides, she said. Early voting allows residents to vote before election day at the local voting of ce. In Georgia, early voting takes place three weeks before election day in all elections. In Florida, the law allows for a maximum of 15 days or a minimum of eight days. For Georgia, the three-week voting period was decided by the state, said Deb Cox, Lowndes County supervisor of elec tions. In the past, shorter and longer early voting periods were tested, but the state decided three weeks is the best number for the majority of counties. Its a little inconvenient for the small ones, and its not quite enough for the large ones, but for the majority, its just about right, Cox said. Lowndes County is on the low end of the larger counties, Cox said. So, the three-week time frame usually works well for Lowndes. For residents, early voting helps de crease the number of errors in the voting process when issues arise. r Cox said those errors can undermine the entire democratic process. If people arent registered to vote cor rectly, if they dont get the right ballot, if they dont have access to voting, then nothing else is going to work, she said. The people you elect are not going to be the right people. The questions that are answered are not the right questions. The opinions given to your elected ofcials arent going to be right. So, if this isnt right down here, then nothing is right. In the SunLight Project coverage area Valdosta, Moultrie, Thomasville, Dalton, Milledgville and Tifton, Ga., and Live Oak and Mayo, Fla. early voting plays an important role in every election. Some disagree on whether the role is good, bad or neutral, but overall, voters and ofcials agree there should be as few roadblocks as possible between people and making their voices heard at the polls. In Lowndes County, Cox said partici pation in early voting has been trending upward through the years. On average, 58 percent of active reg istered voters participate in early voting in the general elections and 45 percent of active registered voters participate in pri maries, Cox said. Thomas County voting records show early voting increases each year. I know that since my appointment, said Frank Scoggins, Thomas County elections supervisor, there have been sig nicant increases, and in some cases, 50 percent of the total votes were cast during early voting. In Lafayette County, Fla., early voting has denitely been utilized by voters. Early voting is on the increase, said Travis Hart, supervisor of elections for Lafayette County. It has been increasing over the years. During the past four elections, the early voting numbers have doubled from 500 early voting ballots cast in the 2014 pri mary election to 1,174 in the 2016 gener al election. Hart said early voting makes it easier for voters to vote. The voters can work around their schedule to vote, Hart said. Leila Dollison, election supervisor for the Tift County Board of Elections and Registrations, pulled early voting records from 2014 through the recent primary election this past May. She said she re alized it is difcult to compare elections because the number of people who vote varies widely depending on what is on the ballot. In 2014, on May 20, the early voting numbers were 1,656, Dollison said. In the 2014 general primary runoff, the num ber was 947, and on Nov. 4, the number was 3,191. Then when you think about 2015, we just had a general election, and it was just a city election. The number was 653. She said 2016 was a big election with big numbers. The presidential primary was 1,512, she said. The May general primary was 1,836 and then the general election end ing on Nov. 8 (the early voting numbers were) 8,192. Dollison said she remembers people really wanting to vote in the 2016 presi dential election. People were coming in, she said. It was heightened, people wanted to vote in 2016. Dollison compared it to the 2017 city and county election, which had a special purpose local option sales tax on the bal lot. The number there was 307, she said. To me, it depends on what is being vot ed on. Early voting has played a major part in some of the most recent election cycles in Baldwin County. In the May 22 statewide primary, 1,506 of the countys 5,026 registered voters cast ballots early, either by mail or in per son, a rate of roughly 28 percent. In a March referendum on a new T-SPLOST tax, a little less than 50 per cent of total voters voted early, while the November 2016 election saw early voters rise to 54 percent. That same year, the state race primaries had a similar number of early voters to its May 2018 counter part at 36 percent. Early voting may make it more con venient for people, but Todd Blackwell, probate judge and elections superinten dent of Baldwin County, said he hasnt seen it make a difference in the number of total voter turnout. He said all early voting does is give people an additional 21 days to vote if they choose, but it doesnt necessarily make people more inclined to vote. Percentage-wise, Blackwell said, the number of voters stays the same, its just that early voting makes it more conve nient for the voter. The Cost of Convenience With only about half of the active voting population participating in early voting, and that half representing an often small percentage of the total number of registered voters, some congressmen and statewide representatives argue it costs too much. The Lowndes County supervisor of elections disagrees. Theres a balance, Cox said. Its not just the money going out the door with no return. Youre dropping money on Election Day and increasing it a little bit on this side. She said the cost for the 2016 No vember election cost an extra $4,618.25, which includes adding additional, tempo rary staff to help with the increase trafc of voters. For smaller elections such as runoffs, Cox said it doesnt typically have any additional costs since the elections ofce always has three people. This is an estimate because some days had less workers, and some days during the last week may have had more workers to assist at the counter, with phones, bal ancing everything from the day before, Cos said. State Rep. Jason Shaw said as a repre sentative of a region comprised of small and large counties, he sees both sides of the argument and thinks there needs to be a balance between the citizens right to vote and the nancial burden put on small governments. Shaw said Lanier County has been forced to close almost all of its precincts because of the rising costs. For Shaw, who is from Lanier, the closings have af fected him personally. I lived out in the Mud Creek section, and for years, we were able to vote on Election Day at the Mud Creek Volunteer Fire Department, which is way out in the north end of the county, he said. It was a tradition to go vote at that rural area. Now, its closed. Others have closed, and there were hard feelings cause a lot of folks had been voting there for years. The county had to close the Mud Creek precinct for nancial reasons. Shaw said early voting wasnt the sole reason, but the additional costs of keeping three peo ple at a precinct for three weeks played a signicant role. Sherry Grifn, chief deputy registrar in Lanier County, said early voting comes with pros and cons. On one side, its great that people have the convenience to vote whenever they want, she said. But from a budget standpoint, she said it can be difcult to man the precinct for 21 days when barely anyone takes advan tage of it, especially during elections with little interest. We dont want to disenfranchise vot ers, Grifn said, but we would prefer for (early voting) to be two weeks. As an example of the cost, she said the May 22 general primary early voting and preparations cost the county $4,372. Larger counties are better equipped to pay, she said, but considering the number of elections in a given year, the costs can be daunting to a county the size of Lanier. Dollison said the cost of early voting is rolled into the overall cost of running each election in Tift County and averages about $10,000. Glenda Williams, Suwannee County supervisor of elections, said a total of $5,200 was spent during the 2016 general election, while Colquitt County Voter Registrar Paula McCullough said the main cost for them is the two full-time poll workers, which costs the county about $2,160. A county employee from the Colquitt County Magistrate Court rounds out the skeleton team used for a runoff election though not many people show up. Even with the extra cost to taxpayers, McCullough said early voting is popular. We have lots of voters come in and say they would rather do the early vot ing, she said. And, in Whiteld County, the cost of early voting doesnt cost taxpayers much since it takes place in the elections ofce in the courthouse. We are here anyway, so it doesnt really cost anything except when we have to come in on a Saturday, said Mary Hammontree, Whiteld County registrar. Then I have to pay the people who come in overtime. Hammontree estimates the cost of hold ing Saturday voting, when it is required, is about $700, and she said that is the only additional cost of early voting. Rep. Shaw said early voting began about 30 years ago as a way to make it easier on election ofcials who were overwhelmed by crowds on Election Day. It started with a week and slowly grew and grew until it was 45 days. Forty-ve days was deemed too ex treme, so it was changed to the current three weeks. He said he sees no reason why the state cant take another look at early voting. Eventually, I think we should look at these smaller jurisdictions and see how many people have voted and see what it costs per vote and compare that cost to a larger county, Shaw said. It would be like night and day. If a larger county paid the same amount per vote as the smaller counties, taxpayers in larger counties would go ballistic over the costs, he said. There has to be some kind of bal ance, Shaw said, between making sure there is plenty of time to vote and, at the same time, making sure were not cre ating an undue nancial burden for the taxpayers. I think it can be done.

JULY 25 & 26, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 15A Life in White Springs I qualify as being a small town boy in several ways, none of them conventional. I was born in Ft. Oglethorpe, Georgia, but, being an Army brat, I only stayed there for a few months before moving on to the many places we stayed during my dads military career. No, I didnt grow up in a small town, but the small town of Montezuma, Georgia, was my dads home town and that was where wed go for Christmas and summer vacations. It was my favorite place to visit and it in stilled in me a lot of the small town val ues that I still think are important. Being involved, being a good neighbor, being polite, working hard, were all Montezu ma values that served me well no matter where I lived. No stranger to big city life, I lived in Jacksonville for 34 years. When I moved to White Springs in 1990, the transition to life in small town was easier than I thought it would be and you couldnt beat me with a stick and make me move back to the big city. I like to make big city excursions now and then, but the best part of trips out of White Springs is coming home. Yes, small town life is good but there are some trends of late that do give me some concern. Like everywhere else, the stress and strain of modern life has taken its toll and small towns struggle to keep their appeal and to resist the forces that try to divide us. More folks stay in attack mode most of the time, belittling anyone who disagrees with them. Name calling and acting like the bully on the playground is not just for unsupervised children any more, quite a few adults have joined in. Small town values still rule, but they are threatened. Dont give in to the threats, hang on! With small town values there can be a bright future for our small town of White Springs and all small towns like it across Florida. Be a good neighbor, be involved, be civil and uphold the core values of small town life. If you do, be cause of you and people like you, small town values will continue to exist, and in this day and age they matter more than ever! The White Springs Library always has something going on! The White Springs Library is a Summer Break Spot provid ing free meals for children 18 years and under. Meals are available for accompa nying adults for $2.50. This takes place each week on Monday-Thursday from 12:30-1 p.m., through Thursday, Aug. 2. On Tuesday, July 31, from 1:30:30 p.m. there will be a Kimono Sewing class. Did you miss the rst one? The li brary is partnering once again with Ham ilton County Extension Services to bring this exciting sewing event to you where you will be making kimonos. Cost is $5 for materials, or you can bring your own two yards of soft owing fabric. Were always glad to hear about go ings on in the community and will be glad to share anything appropriate for this column. 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 Small Town Life in White Springs rfntnbtftftrt Jeny Santos attends Girls State JASPER The Ham ilton County American Legion Auxiliary sent Jeny Santos to the 2018 Girls State program this year. It was held in Talla hassee. The girls bunked in dorms at Florida State University. ALA Girls State is a unique and exciting gov ernment-in-action learning program in which ALA members guide young women to become pa triotic, knowledgeable stewards of freedom and democracy, Marilyn Jack son said. Santos said the rst few days the girls got to know each other and learn about government positions along with their respective duties. It was exciting to see the other girls campaign for positions, mainly be cause that is what actual politicians do and from what I could see it was not easy for everyone, Santos said. Santos said the highlight of Girls State was the last three days at the Capitol. Santos said her mentor reminded the girls that at the Capital the girls would be separated into their own individual position but the girls would always nd support, the girls would be there for each other. Girls State aside from being a summer program dedicated to teaching girls to be excelling individuals, it also provided a base of simple camaraderie amongst all the partici pants, Santos said. While it is important to be inde pendent and hardworking, it cannot be denied that there are some things that we just simply need sup port, and by seeking that help it does not make us weak, but stronger. American Legion Aux iliary Unit 215 thanks the Hamilton County Sheriffs Ofce and Sheriff Harrell Reid for their dedication in providing transportation. rfntnbtftfrtfftnbrfrf rfnfrrrnn LIVE OAK Country Showdown preliminaries ended Friday at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park with the selection of four nal winners who gave terric performances to win their way to the Re gional Finals this Friday.

Contests nal four preliminary winners chosen rrtftrtrbfrrtbn trnbttrtn (StatePoint) This school year, you can help set up your kids for success. Its all about having the per fect study zone at home. Here are ve cool ideas for creating a workspace for kids that will promote great study habits and inspire learning. 1. Find the right real estate. Every child learns differently. So, depending on the person doing the studying, the perfect space could be a quiet, bright corner of the house away from the hustle and bustle, or it could be in the midst of family life and activity. Experiment with each set up, periodically checking in with your child to see whats working and whats not. 2. Upgrade visual learn ing. Is your child a visual learner? Upgrade study time in any sized space with a short throw projector that automatically adapts the projection brightness to the lighting conditions in the room. One option that allows you to control the projector wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet is the Casio Ultra Short Throw LampFree Projec tor XJ-UT351WN which Five ways to set up the ultimate workstation for kids rfntbfn features a mercury-free laser and LED hybrid light source, making it an eco-friendly and safe op tion for young students. 3. Embrace the principles of natural wellness. It is said that certain essential oils can promote focus and improve concentration. These can be diffused, rolled, or simply inhaled to give students a boost when it comes time to cram for an exam. 4. Make time for music. Studies have found that music can help improve memory. And making music can be an effective stress reliever in the face of school-induced stress. Consider outtting your childs study area with an affordable, lightweight in strument like a Casio CT-X Keyboard, which features an extensive library of 600 tones and 195 rhythms, supporting diverse musi cal genres. Whether its a 20-minute study break, or a jam session once home work is completed, make it possible for musical cre ativity to come to life. 5. Incorporate educa tional tech. Education tech tools can help synthesize classroom concepts. Be sure your childs work space incorporates new tech like ClassPad.net, a web-based mathematics resource for K-12 and beyond, which students can use to draw geome try gures freehand and input calculations as they would on real scratch pa per. Great for study bud dies, the tool allows for simultaneous work with calculation, graphing, ge ometry and data analysis/ statistics.

And the offensive system LHS runs which ts Beach well is built upon letting the quarterback read the defense and make decisions on the go. The biggest questions facing Beach, and the team, is if LHS can have the same type of success after losing half its wide receivers and the entire offen sive line. Backing up Beach is Adam Perry. Perry will also see action at wide re ceiver. Suwannee Tyree Taylor, Jaquez Moore Both Tyree Taylor and Jaquez Moore have shown they have the ability to be the starting quarterback. Continued From Page 1B Quarterback The Bulldogs have good depth at the position, but there isnt a frontrunner for the job. In their spring game victory against Florida High in May, the Bulldogs used both players at QB and wide receiver. As for Taylor, hes the more pol ished passer. He has a little more ex perience; Taylor is entering his junior season while Moore is a sophomore. But in important district games last season most notably against Rib ault and Stanton Prep the moment was never too big for Moore. He energized Suwannee with his running ability and made some big plays on the ground. Whether its Taylor or Moore at quarterback, or a rotating system, both will have an impact on the offense and likely be on the eld at the same time. Branford Jevin Johnson, Seth Heiderman Johnson, back at Branford for his senior year after transferring to Su wannee for one year, will get his rst starting opportunity. Hell have plenty of weapons to throw to with CJ Pep per, Trevin White and Junior Cress. BHS averaged less than 10 passes per game last season, but that number should go up with a more traditional quarterback and a strong group of receivers. Seth Heiderman was the quarter back for Branfords undefeated JV team last year and will back up John son. Buccaneers coach Tim Clark said that Pepper and Dakota Hamm could also line up at QB in the wildcat. Hamilton County Malachi Graham, Keyvon Webb Freshman Malachi Graham will get the chance to showcase his skills for the Trojans. Graham has shown off a good arm this summer in 7v7 work outs and has a good receiving corps. Keyvon Webb will play a mix of QB and running back. Sports Three quarterback busts likely for 2018 fantasy football draft Busts happen. Whether through injury or skill lev el, its inevitable the 2018 fantasy football season will include more than a handful of busts. Some will be epic, while some will be on a smaller scale. Whatever the case, avoiding the bust is par amount to your teams long-term fantasy football success. Guarding against injury is difcult to assess, but there are some options that are too highly rated heading into the 2018 fantasy foot ball season. Heres three quarterbacks Im leery about because of their bust potential in the 2018 fantasy football draft. Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers, Ranked 4th I know Newton managed to score the second-most points among quarterbacks in 2017. And I know just three years ago he was the ultimate fantasy football quarterback. However, he scares me with his below-60 percent completion percentage and the longevity of his career if he continues to run. At an age where he should be diminishing his rushing attempts, he totaled a career high in attempts in 2017 with 139. I dont care how big he is, thats not sustain able for much longer. He also is showing hell never be a semi-accurate passer, with his intercep tion totals going up, and his completion percentage hovering in that 59 percent range. Most of all, though, what drives me nuts about New ton is his inconsistency as a fantasy quarterback. Like no other quarterback, he can put up massive numbers in a single game. However, he generally follows that up with low-teen totals. Those monster numbers are great for one week, but are a det riment for con sistent produc tion. New ton is ranked fourth among quarter backs heading into the 2018 season, with an overall ranking of 61. Red ags should be going up when the opportunity arises for drafting Newton. Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans, Ranked 5th Its scary terrain in the early drafting of quarter backs. No one can say with a straight face that they know Watson is going to be a fan tasy football star. He has the potential of putting up the best numbers of any quarter back, but the risk is off the charts. Watson only played in seven games during his rookie campaign, but yet the fantasy football world cant contain itself in anticipation for a breakout season. And maybe that will come, but Im not risking that early of a pick on a guy that we have such a limited sample size. And that sample size doesnt prove greatness. He had ve games of 20 or more fantasy points. Thats really good. However, three of those ve teams ranked in the bottom-10 of the NFL in yards per pass attempt. He contributed massive production in those games, but he was doing it, for the most part, against bad pass defenses. We also shouldnt ignore the injury concern, either, with Watson being a running quarterback and al ready dealing with injuries. Sophomore slumps hap pen, so dont rush to judg ment on how great Watson can be. It could be your teams undoing. Andrew Luck, Indianapo lis Colts, Ranked 11th Luck is all about risk ver sus reward. Its difcult to be consid ered a bust being the 11th ranked quarterback and the 101-ranked overall player. However, if youre deem ing Luck to be your starter, and he turns out to be a completely different model than we previously saw, then sure, he can be a bust. Picking Luck is all about your own teams roster strength. If youre able to pick up a quarterback soon after Luck, without hurting your roster, theres not much risk. However, if you reach for Luck, or dont pick up a quality backup, then youre shouldering too much risk. I think Luck can be one of the biggest sleepers in the 2018 fantasy football draft, especially if hes ready for week 1. How ever, his rehab has been delayed before, so if were still not seeing him as the season starts, and his rehab diminishes, Im not sure what version of Luck well see. Hes a gamble, so if youre targeting him, be ware of his bust potential. Scott Levine is the Associ ate Editor for the Clinton Herald.
