FINANCIAL FOCUS If youre a single woman, most of your nancial challenges and aspirations may resemble those of single men. Men and women face the same economic stress factors of modern life, and both groups have similar nancial goals, such as the ability to retire comfortably. But women still face specic obstacles. You need to be aware of these challenges and do everything you can to overcome them. For example, women still face a wage gap. In 2017, women earned 82% of what men earned, according to the Pew Research Center. However, the wage gap narrows among younger workers, and may even disappear for highly educated women, especially those in the STEM elds science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Another nancial concern for women is connected to their role as caregivers. Women spend an average of 12 years out of the workforce to care for children, elderly relatives and even friends, according to an estimate by the Social Security Administration. Other studies report dierent gures, but all the evidence points to women being the ones who take time o from work to care for loved ones. is means fewer contributions to Social Security, 401(k)s and other retirement plans. Faced with these and other issues, what can you do to help yourself move toward your important goals? Consider these steps: nancial habits can pay o for you throughout your lifetime. ese habits can include maintaining a budget, keeping your debts under control, and putting aside some money for a rainy day. for an organization that oers a 401(k) or similar plan, contribute as much as you think you can aord. At the very least, put in enough to earn your employers matching contribution, if one is oered. And every time your salary goes up, increase the amount you invest in your plan. Also, think about opening an IRA, which, like a 401(k), can oer tax-advantaged investment opportunities. If you have children, youll also want to explore college savings vehicles, such as a 529 plan. advice. Some people think investing is just too complex and mysterious to be understandable. Yet, with patience and a willingness to learn, you can become quite knowledgeable about how to invest, what youre investing in and what forces aect the investment world. And to help you create an investment strategy thats appropriate for your goals, risk tolerance and time horizon, you may also want to work with a nancial professional. you get married or re-married, youll want to discuss nancial issues with your new spouse. Specically, youll want to answer questions such as these: What assets and to merge your nances or keep them separate? Are your term goals? You and your new spouse dont need identical views on every nancial topic, but you both need to be willing to work together to advance your common interests. Ultimately, you have a lot of control over your own nancial future. And making informed choices can help make that future a bright one. 121834-1 Check out these reviews and others on the product pages at STIHLdealers.com. STIHLdealers.com All prices are DSRP.

Roommates Delia Posada and Barbara Chitty sat in the lobby of Pruitt-Health Crest wood and readied them selves to receive a special present. It was a radiant day for Pruitt-Health residents July 26 as the Flower Gallery de livered owers to 70 patients as part of National Make Someone Smile Week. Flooding the halls at the nursing facility were yellow and white daisies planted in a yellow smiley face mug with a yellow smiley face balloon attached. We hope that we have brightened your day, read a complimentary card in the holder. Posada, 80, has been a resident at Pruitt-Health for seven years and said she looks forward to receiving owers. It makes me feel good to think somebody thinks about us, Posada said. Of the 11 years the Flower Gallery has been delivering owers to Pruitt-Health, it was the rst time Chitty has been a recipient of the gal lerys gift. Shes been at the facility for slightly more than a year. It feels good, very good; we just love owers, Chitty said. Susan Mullis, owner of the Flower Gallery, said the owers help patients feel special and loved. She said some of the patients have no one to visit them. Its very gratifying to see their faces; it uplifts their spirits, and we very much get something out of it, she said. Its very rewarding to us. Mullis said its a humbling experience and a blessing to her company to be able to see the patients and offer them gifts. All Valdosta nursing facil ities have received owers, as well, including Fellowship Home, Mullis said. The mugs were donated by the Teleora oral wire service company, Mullis said. Some of the owers were donated, as well. Fourteen members of the Valdosta Garden Center as sisted the Flower Gallery. ntbbntbbb nnb bbtnnrbbbtbb bbbbntbbnb btbbr Nutrien Ag Solutions looks forward to bright future in Moultrie fff markeith.cromartie@ganews.com MOULTIRE, Ga. Nutrien Ag Solutions were of cially inducted into the Moultrie-Colquitt County Cham ber of Commerce on Friday. Once known as Agrium but thanks to a merger be tween Agrium and Potash Corp, Nutrien Ag Solutions was born. It is one of the biggest agriculture retailers in the world with multiple divisions inside and outside of the United States. Nutrien has a phosphate facility in White Springs that was previously part of Potash Corp. Georgia is home to more than 30 locations for Nutrien, and it has made Moultrie home to its Georgia division ofce. Nathan Packer, general manager of the Georgia divi sion for Nutrien Ag Solutions, said he is excited to bring the company to the community. Nutrien wants us to be part of the community and today we wanted to invite everyone to see what we have built here, Packer said at Fridays ribbon cutting cer emony. We pride ourselves on being number one and being able to service the community. The new Nutiren Ag building was built in the location of the old Moultrie Alternator shop. It now houses the di vision ofce and a terminal that does fertilizer blends for all stores. Across the road is a retail center that supplies the local farmers. Packer described the building as one of the most ad vanced buildings the company has built with a digital secretary where people can just touch a name on the screen to get in contact with anyone they want in the building and a video conference room. We have incorporated a lot of technology in this building to keep up with the growing ag community, said Packer. The ag industry is changing and its chang ing rapidly, and we see in the next 12 to 18 months the old way of taking orders on pads will be replaced with doing everything on your cell phone. Tommie Beth Willis, president of the Moultrie Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce, was excited to welcome the company as a great addition to the chamber. Theyve had a presence here before, Willis said, but its very exciting to see the growth of the company and the community.

This week, all of the athletes that par ticipate in fall sports in Suwannee County have started practicing. The golfers have started playing practice rounds at area golf courses. The football players have started getting used to tackling each other in the hot and humid conditions. The volleyball players are working on their serves in the gym. The swimmers have started swim ming, and the cross country team has started running. Next week, all of the hard-working teachers who helped Suwannee County earn a B as a district will start setting up their class rooms and preparing lesson plans. Next Friday, all of the students will report for the rst day of the 20182019 school year. It is an exciting time of year for everyone involved in some way with schooling our youth. Even though our state leaders do not prioritize public education in Florida, our teachers hold their heads high and do the best that they can with the limited resources they are given. For the rst time that I can recall, every school district in Florida made an A, B or C grade. Even nearby districts that have had a hard time making decent grades have improved. Hamilton County was once given an F grade as a district; this past year they earned a C. Madison County was able to im prove its once failing grade up to a B. This is an impressive feat that Floridas demonized and demoralized teachers were able to earn the best grades ever in an unfair grading system that is constantly changing. How did the legislature reward the hard-working men and women who teach our children every day? They increased per pupil funding by a net 47 cents. Rick Scott will tell you that Florida has never spent more on public education. Rick Scott wont tell you that much of last years increase is earmarked for safety measures and new security personnel at each school location. Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature never mention that Florida is only a few spots from last place when it comes to per pupil funding in our public schools. The Florida Supreme Court has recently agreed to hear a case that has been working its way through our court system since 2009. The lawsuit brought forth by Citizens for Strong Schools alleges that Florida public schools are not adequately funded and do not provide a solid education to all students in violation of the Florida Constitution. Lower courts have sided with the state and said that the decision rested with the Leg islature. When the legislature is dead wrong, and the courts wont intervene, what is a frustrated populace supposed to do? The hardest job in the land on the day that case is heard by the states supreme court will be the attorney for Florida who will have to argue that the states funding is adequate. How will they explain that while Florida has the 4th largest GDP in the country, our per pupil funding ranks somewhere in the bottom nine states. Even someone who is trying not to see the facts cant escape the reality of our states lack of education al funding despite our economys rank among the top of all states. Several of the people running for governor have pointed out our states poor investment in public education in their televi sion commercials. As we get ready to start another school year, I hope and pray the people of Florida will elect a governor who will actually do something about our states underfunding of our future.

Opinion A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Ready for another year of public school Poverty is no mystery, and its easily avoidable. The poverty line that the Census Bureau used in 2016 for a single person was an income of $12,486 that year. For a two-person household, it was $16,072, and for a four-person household, it was $24,755. To beat those poverty thresholds is fairly simple. Heres the road map: Complete high school; get a job, any kind of a job; get married before having children; and be a law-abiding citizen. How about some numbers? A single per son taking a minimum wage job would earn an annual income of $15,080. A married couple would earn $30,160. By the way, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, less than 4 percent of hourly workers in 2016 were paid the minimum wage. That means that more than 96 percent of workers earned more than the minimum wage. Not surprising is the fact that among both black and white married couples, the poverty rate is in the sin gle digits. Most poverty is in female-headed households. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders presidential campaign gar nered considerable appeal from millennials. These young people see socialism as superior to free market capitalism. Capitalism doesnt do well in popularity polls, despite the fact that it has eliminated many of mankinds worst problems, such as pestilence and gross hunger and poverty. One of the reasons is that capitalism is always evaluated against the nonexistent, non-realizable utopias of socialism or communism. Any earth ly system, when compared with a utopia, will not fare well. Indeed, socialism sounds good but, when practiced, leads to disaster. Those disasters have been experienced in countries such as the USSR, China, most African nations and, most re cently, Venezuela. When these disasters are pointed out, the excuse is inadequacies of socialist leaders rather than socialism itself. For the ordinary person, free market capitalism, with all of its warts, is superior to any system yet devised to deal with our everyday needs and desires. Here are a couple of questions: Does an act clearly immoral when done privately become moral when done collectively? Does legality or majority consensus establish morality? Before you answer, consider that slavery was legal; South African apartheid was legal; the horrendous Stalinist, Nazi and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality or a majority consensus cannot establish morality. You might ask, If youre so smart, Williams, what estab lishes morality? Thats easy, and you tell me when I make the wrong step. My initial premise is that we own ourselves. You are your private property, and I am mine. Self-ownership reveals whats moral and immoral. Rape is immoral because it violates private property. So is murder and any other initiation of violence. Most people probably agree with me that rape and murder are immoral, but what about theft? Some Americans would have a problem deciding whether theft is moral or im moral. Lets rst dene what theft is. A fairly good working deni tion of theft is the taking by force of one persons property and the giving of it to another to whom it does not belong. Most Americans think that doing that is OK as long as its done by government. We think that it is OK for Congress to take the earnings of one American to give to another American in the form of agricultural subsidies, business bailouts, aid for higher education, food stamps, welfare and other such activities that make up at least two-thirds of the federal budget. If I took some of your earnings to give to a poor person, Id go to jail. If a congressman did the same thing, hed be praised. People tend to love a powerful government. Quite naturally, a big, powerful government tends to draw into it people with bloated egos, people who think they know more than everyone else and have little hesitance in coercing their fellow man. No bel laureate Friedrich Hayek explained why corruption is rife in government: In government, the scum rises to the top. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University.

AUGUST 1 & 2, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 8A Around the Banks A place remembered: the springhouse From cool to hot: First, the feeling of the cool dampness of the concrete walk under your feet and then the heat of the old boardwalk as you took the steps down to the springhouse at White Springs. To day a similar walk lead to the old springs; but theres nothing much there, nothing most of the time except a great, gaping hole slightly lled with Suwannee River water. Theres nothing to remind you of the days, not more than 40 years ago, when the springs gushed with the same vigor they had since time immemorial. The amber-colored healing waters had a sulfur odor kind of like rotten eggs. When you entered the top oor of the springhouse, a cool spray hit your face and invited you to jump in. A swirling vortex of waters pulsed up from the heart of the spring thousands of gallons per minute and owed into the Suwannee River. The Victorian springhouse that once surrounded the large substantial cement wall always reminded me of a white wed ding cake. It had a shingled roof, a point ed cupola on the front, and banisters on each of the three oors that separated the many bathers from the edge of the wall. The top oor was signicantly above the waters level; the bottom oor served as a step into the icy waters. Every year around the second week in April, the owner of the springs would pay teenage boys to take scrub brushes and booms and clean the wooden oors and the walls to make every thing spick and span for the large numbers of individuals who come there for recre ation. It was the place to be during my child hood and early adoles cence for a good ve months out of the year. People entered through the gift shop and paid a fee to swim for the entire day. During my childhood, my Grandma Bullard bought season passes for my rst cousin, Leann, and me; I think she paid ten dollars for each of them. We left the passes with Mrs. Estelle Stormant, who knew us, just as she knew all the residents of White Springs, population about 800 give a birth or death. I can picture Mrs. Stormant in my minds eye; she braided her hair in coils and made a bun in the back. She was always neatly attired in dresses; immaculately neat and pressed. At the entry point and gift shop, she did a swift business selling candy and other goodies to those who came to swim at the springhouse. We could wear our bathing suits to the springs or change in the dressing rooms on the top oor. At one time, patrons could also receive hot baths and massag es in the springhouse from the late Mrs. Janie Edwards. Mrs. Edwards once com plimented a friend of mine on her muscle tone, remarking, Your muscles dont feel like no boozers muscles. Evidently many well-heeled heavy drinkers and al coholics traveled to White Springs for hot baths and massages to rid their systems of toxins. Also before my time, a hand operated rope-elevator lowered and raised invalids and wheel-chair bound patients into the springs. On the west wall facing the river, you can still see the indentations where the elevator once lowered and raised the physically challenged into the 72-degree waters for therapy. The water could be purchased for a few cents per gallon, and my Grandma Bull ard kept a couple of gallon jugs in our re frigerator at all times during the year. The water was said to contain high amounts of lithium, and people did get a lift from drinking it. Aside from the history of the springs, I mainly remember the great fun I had there. I would watch as my cousin, the late Bobby Bullard and our friend, Wil lie Pound, jumped from the roof of the springhouse to join me and Willies brother, Mac, in the cold water below. We boys would stay so long in the water that our hands and feet got all crin kled. Wed leave only occasionally just long enough to grab a snack. Looking back on those halcyon days of youth, I know why the Miccosukee Creek Indians who lived in our part of the world believed that the springs and the area around them were sacred. The wa ters did, indeed, have healing properties. They lifted the spirit and the soul during the hottest months of the year and, all the time leading those months, we lived in worshipful anticipation of when we could take our rst dip. Today it saddens me when I look at the remains of what once was a bustling place lled with life, because todays youth wont have the same memories of such a wonderful, magical place. Then I think on that time and my spirit lifts, and I can feel the icy waters where scores of young peo ple in our area swam and socialized. What stopped the ow of the springs? Some say massive digging at the lo cal phosphate company north of White Springs; others say a tremendous increase in the population along Floridas rst coast including Jacksonville and St. Au gustine which used up a lot of the aqui fers waters, I dont know. I do know that after four years of mining north of town, the ow of the springs suddenly de clined, then ceased. A small price to pay some may say for the jobs and millions of dollars of taxes paid by the company through the years but I wonder. I think of some of the words of a Flori da Folk song written by my brother, Jerry Lawrence Bullard, Close your eyes and say a prayer for my homeland, whats been done can never be erased. Can you see this Land of Flowers, her beautys fading fast close your eyes. rfntfbff fb rtt n t b t bn tt fr rr f rrr f n EQUAL OPPORTUNITY EMPLOYMENT, HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE AND FAIR HOUSING JURISDICTION.

AUGUST 1 & 2, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 9A Healthy Living Why you need to keep your shoulders strong I ask not for a lighter burden but for broader shoulders. Jewish Proverb We often do not give a second thought to the load our shoulders carry every day until we experience an injury. I found out how important my shoulders were one day when I went to lift a bag of horse feed and could not do it. That was when I started paying attention to my upper body es pecially my shoulders. For others, an inju ry such as a shoulder sprain or something more severe such as a rotator cuff injury from repetitive use brings the importance of shoulders to the forefront. It is easy not to think about our shoul ders or anything our bodies do automatical ly. Did you know that there are eight lig aments and 15 muscles that directly affect our shoulder movements? Something as simple as shaking out a blanket, putting on a seat belt, reaching into a cupboard or into the freezer to take out something for dinner and even pulling a purse onto our shoulder takes many muscles to accomplish and we do not give it a thought. UNTIL one day you cant. Thats why this week we are going to talk about how to keep your shoulders strong. In Silver Sneakers, we focus on shoulder strength every class because it is so important to our lifestyle. Upper body exercise that includes those for our shoul ders helps maintain and can even rebuild muscle strength. As always it is important to check with your doctor before beginning an exercise program. Once you have the okay, these exercises are great for building shoulder strength and helping with mobility: only help keep your shoulders mobile, they also help with relieving tightness in the upper back. Circle shoulders forward then back. shrugs. Just as it sounds, either with or without dumbbells shrug your shoulders up towards your ears then relax back down. weights, palm down, raise your arms to shoulder height. Not above. Return to your starting position. der pain, this is a great exercise for shoul ders. Begin with no weight. Bend arms in a 90 degree angle at shoulder height and slowly raise both arms overhead. Lower your arms back to original 90 degree angle. As you get stronger, you may add light weights. When doing ANY exercises, be sure to breathe, drink plenty of water, keep an eye on your form and stop immediately if you feel discomfort. Keep an eye on your posture throughout the day and remember to sit or stand up tall. Have a wonderful week!

The slower pace of summer is ending, and we face the task of preparing our children for the challeng es of the upcoming year. A few that come to mind are buying new supplies, getting bedtimes back into practice and meeting the new teacher. Thinking back to our own school days may remind us of something important that we often to overlook as parents. Our kids may begin school with some real anxiety about what the year will hold. As adults, it can be easy to get caught up in grown-up problems such as work, paying bills, etc. and tend to brush off the fears our kids may have as unimportant or even silly. To your children, however, these issues are as real as any you may be facing. If your children seem less than thrilled about going back to school, ask some questions: Are you looking forward to seeing your friends? Are you nervous about how hard the work will be? What do you think about your new teacher? What do you hope will (or will not) hap pen this year? Listen to how your children answer these and other questions, and respond with encouragement. Proverbs 12:25 gives great insight: An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. Helping your child bring their fears out into the open will not only make them less fearful, it will also give you an opportunity to encourage them to deal with their feelings in a positive way. Commit to checking in with your chil dren on a regular basis, asking open-end ed questions (ones that require more than a yes or no an swer) to draw out their feelings. One great daily practice is intentional goodbyes and hellos. It works like this: every morning before your child heads off to school, encourage them about the day, no matter how stress ful the morning has been or how hard it was to wake them up. Make sure that you and your children part ways on a positive note: I love you, have a great day! or I know you will do great on your test! It works the same way when you reunite at the end of the day. Make sure to take a few moments to ask about the day, especially if their heart seems weighed down. Dont get discouraged if they dont open right up and talk. Give it time and practice. Keep asking and keep en couraging and remember that our children have their own giants to face. Above all, we want to make sure they know we are in their corner!

Its kind of a good time to make a transition, she said. And after 19 years, Dopp also said it was a good time for her to transition to her next adventure. It doesnt mean I wont still be engaged and in volved, but its time for somebody to come in and take over, Dopp said. And Dopp already has plans for what shell be do ing next: less. The reality of it is, and my typical quip is, when people say what are you going to do when you retire, I say Im going to do less, she said with a laugh. It gets hard to just keep up with everything youre trying to keep up with and spend time with friends and family and work. So all of the above. Theres plenty of other things that I will have the opportunity to spend time on. Among the accomplish ments she has spent time on the past 19 years that shes most proud of are establishing a food bank, which is now operated by Catholic Charities, the United Way becoming recognized as the areas homeless coalition and the organizations new home in Lake City that it moved into two years ago. Dopp said the lack of a food bank was something she had noticed prior to joining the United Way and its a task she was grateful that the planning committee and board de cided to take on, before transitioning it to one of its existing agencies in Catho lic Charities. To me, that was an im portant thing, she said. Likewise, it was im portant for United Way to garner the homeless coali tion status in order to help provide additional funding for its agencies. Dopp said that status is invaluable in receiving grants. Theres a lot of proj ects, but all are funded as a result of recognition as Continued From Page 1A Dopp the homeless coalition, she said, adding that that additional funding allows the member agencies to focus on the local fundrais ing that is needed for the match requirements of the grants. What we can raise locally is extremely im portant to our community agencies and I cant stress that enough. The latest major accom plishment was the United Ways home at 871 SW State Road 47 in Lake City. It was also a project that took some time. Dopp said the building committee rst worked on nding a new home in 2008. Then the recession hit and the project drug on. Eventually, though, Unit ed Way found its perfect spot. Were extremely lucky to have this building, that this building became avail able, she said. It was in foreclosure. It just needed a lot of love. I think this is a huge benet to our community to have a nice, physical location for its United Way that serves its com munity. and we are looking forward to the people coming to visit, Green said.

The ded ication of the sponsors in seeing these scholarships continue is equally amaz ing. Another topic of discus sion at the meeting was the issue of public aware ness of the organization. Even though the organi zation just celebrated its 30th year, it is not as well known throughout the community as during its inaugural years. This has been a big deal for our kids but weve got to get people interested again to keep it viable for future gen erations, said Hewett, a founding member. The consensus of the group was to embark on an awareness campaign to educate the public and encourage citizens to learn more about the Penny Foundation. Hopefully, through these efforts peo ple will contribute or set up scholarship funds of their own. History & Background of the Lafayette Penny Foundation The Lafayette Penny Foundation is a non-prot corporation for benecial purposes to the public in terest. The Penny in the foundation name is to con vey to donors the concept of supporting its good and worthy work by even the smallest amount. The rst meeting to form the foundation was held in the home of one of the original incorpora tors, Mr. Foye OSteen in Mayo on May 16, 1988. Continued From Page 1A Lafayette Ofcers who were elect ed included Hugh Smith as President, Mike Shaw as First Vice President, Hewett as Second Vice President, Linda Foye Barrington as Secretary and Paul Trawick as Trea surer. Subsequently, at the second annual meeting in 1989, Marilyn Wimberley was elected Chief Finan cial Ofcer. The Foundation is still active today with 38 proj ect fund accounts. It has been benecial in raising money for community projects as well as provid ing countless scholarships for our local graduates. For anybody interested in setting up an account with the foundation, it will not only be an investment for your civic activities, but also an investment in young people as well as the community.

AUGUST 1 & 2, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT JASPER NEWS MAYO FREE PRESS PAGE 11A State & Region tom.lynn@ganews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. Before the 2008 nancial crash, getting a loan could not have been easier. Banks across the country handed out mortgages like candy, requiring little oversight or account ability. After the crash, new regulations were established to prevent another nancial di saster. The largest of the regulations passed in July 2010; it was the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Now, eight years since Dodd-Frank, the economy is healthy and stable again. However, accord ing to bankers and nancial experts across the SunLight Project coverage area Valdosta, Moultrie, Thomasville, Dalton and Milledgeville, Ga. the effects of the Great Recession may have subsided but the broad regulations put in place to prevent another crash still con strict smaller community banks. Weathering the storm Til Culbreth, Thomasville National Bank group vice president, said the bank was fortunate to ride out the recession. Many small banks around the SunLight Project coverage area were not so lucky. Culbreth said banks such as TNB were not the primary cause of the crisis but were still impacted. It was mainly caused by these nancial institutions throughout the country that did not know their borrowers, he said. For example, a megabank in Califor nia loaned money to someone in South Carolina and had no documentation or verication of income, Culbreth said. But community banks know their bor rowers, he said. Their managers live in the community, grew up there, graduated there, shop at the local grocery store and own homes there. Culbreth said Dodd-Frank cast a net over all banks even the community banks that know their customers. The crisis caused most banks to change their standards for loaning mon ey, Culbreth said. The net effect of that is it made some of their best customers un-bankable. Because of TNBs nancial strength, the bank could work with customers who were struggling nancially, Culbreth said. Ironically, many of those customers have recovered fully and are some of our banks best customers, he said. TNB follows the regulation, but does its best to insulate customers from govern ment bureaucracy, he said. Finding a happy medium Stacy Bush, president and founder of Bush Wealth Man agement in Valdosta, said the overall goal of Dodd-Frank was to keep big banks from getting too big. The goal of it is to make sure banks have more capital in place, Bush said. More capital would make it harder for a bank to fail, but also slows down how fast a bank can grow, he said. Slowed growth is ne for a bank the size of a small coun try, but can be dam aging to a local bank with a little more than $1 million in capital. Bush said he be lieves local banks were caught in the mix with too big to fail banks. J.J. Arias, Georgia College economics professor, agrees with Bush. The purpose of Dodd-Frank was to try and prevent another nancial crisis, and it mainly did that through a lot of new reg ulations, Arias said. The problem was that a lot of those new regulations applied to small banks, medium-sized banks and large banks. Obviously (the Great Reces sion) had a lot of causes, but in terms of banking, it was mainly the large and very large banks that were responsible. Many regulations required banks to re port more detailed information about their clients and placed a considerable burden on some of the countrys smallest institu tions. Bush said local banks know their com munities and should have the discretion to work with their clients. The best example of the burden placed on smaller banks is the hoops people have to jump through to get a mortgage, he said. Getting a mortgage is a process of collecting required documents like bank account statements, investment statements and that sort of thing, Bush said. If you dont have every little i dotted and t crossed, it can be a pain. For example, he had a client who want ed to buy a house. The clients income had increased and the client had the mon ey available to purchase a home, but he missed lling out one little box and was denied the mortgage, Bush said. The amount of regulation you need to go through today is unbelievable, he said. In the years following Dodd-Frank, community banks had to devote full-time workers to government compliance, a task that had traditionally been done with parttime labor. For Derek Williams, president and chief executive ofcer of Century Bank & Trust of Milledgeville, he and his employees were suddenly doing a lot more reporting on the compliance side. We were having to provide a lot more data and a lot more information to the government, and we were not allowed to make independent decisions based on what we knew about a customer, Wil liams said. In an effort to roll back some of the new lending and mortgage requirements, Williams and other members of the na tional small banking trade association and the Independent Community Bankers of America took their grievances to elected state ofcials. A lot of small banks couldnt afford to pay the compliance staffs they needed to keep up with it, so as a trade association, we began lobbying at the state and nation al level, basically, as soon as Dodd-Frank came out, Williams said. He said they told ofcials the small banks didnt cause the problem. We werent doing crazy stuff. We were taking local deposits and giving local loans in markets that we knew and under stood. Small banks make well over half of small business loans because big banks typically dont deal with them, and small businesses have been the basis of our re covery, Williams said. Bush said regulations on smaller banks were not as cumbersome before the Great Recession. He said getting a mortgage pre-2000 required about 10 or 20 percent of a pay ment up front and proper documentation such as proof of employment and the ability of the applicant to make regular payments. Then, as the country moved closer to the nancial crash, the burden of looking into loan applicants to nd out if they qualied was handed to other entities, Bush said. (These entities) would just process mortgages, he said. They came into the idea that ... you didnt have to show any thing. They would just write you a check and that was the candy phase. The economic collapse soon followed. Paul Hamilton, a Valdosta lawyer and chairman of the economic development & taxation policy committee for the Valdo sta-Lowndes County Chamber of Com merce, said government overreacted when it passed Dodd-Frank. He said it went from one side of the pendulum where everything was going wild and crazy to the other side where all of the money seemed to dry up. Banks were hesitant to loan anything because of the fear they might miss some thing and be penalized, he said. Such caution can hurt local economies and prevent new businesses from opening and new buildings from going up. We need to nd a happy medium, Hamilton said. Im not saying that there is no need for regulation. Things were out of control. We were giving too much credit to people who did not qualify. What I believe and what a large part of the busi ness community believes is that we went too far. Course correcting When President Donald Trump signed a Dodd-Frank rollback bill into law earlier this summer, the new bill eased several regulations on small and medium-sized banks, including a relaxing of reporting requirements for small bank loans and mortgages. Hamilton thinks the rollback is a step in the right direction toward nding a more equitable middle ground, and he has heard from community members that things have improved. We need to get to a place where com munity banks can spend less time dealing with audits and red tape and more time working with their customers to meet their needs, he said. The community banks know where that spot is better than any one. Williams agrees with Hamilton, saying Dodd-Frank was an overreaction and it put handcuffs on small banks such as his institution. It radically changed the way we deal with our customers, he said. The thing that makes small banks unique is our ability to sit down with a customer and deal with that individual. We know them, weve had experience with them, we know their businesses, and we probably know their families. You hear a lot in community banks that its a relationship, not a deal, and it really is. Although the rollback removes harmful barriers on small banks and nancial in stitutions, Professor Arias said the bill can be streamlined even further. I think what the rollback did was good, he said. It gave relief to the small community banks that I think will help local economies. I believe that the most effective regulation is regulation thats straightforward and simple. Arias said the problem with DoddFrank is its a little too complicated. When regulations are complicated, the regulators always lose because the big banks can nd their way around things. For a bank the size of Ameris Bank, a southeastern bank with more than $5 billion in assets, Dodd-Frank increased Ameris responsibili ties and standards, ac cording to the Ameris Bank, headquartered in Moultrie. This provided an opportunity to en act more oversight protection for its customers, according to a statement from Ameris. Explaining what was positive in the legislation, Ameris noted studies have found that Dodd-Frank improved nancial stability and consumer protection within the United States and helped strengthen investor protection. The consumer protec tion reforms created uniform standards for the industry. Even with the rollback of regulations, research has shown consumers are more optimistic about the stability and depend ability of banks and will take advantage of the more traditional services offered by banks, according to the Ameris statement. The rollback will enable new efcient, yet effective, nancial regulations to help foster economic growth that can benet our customers, according to Ameris. Mitch Sanford, executive vice president and senior credit ofcer at First Bank of Dalton, has been involved in banking in the Dalton area for about 30 years. He said the Dalton economy has fully recov ered from the Great Recession, with one major caveat. Things have changed. The mortgage underwriting conditions are different. They have probably become more lenient in the last 18 to 24 months, but they are not the same as they were be fore the Great Recession, Sanford said. He didnt say if the change was for bet ter or worse. According to economists, Sanford said, the Great Recession ended in 2012, but locally, it was probably 2012 before they started seeing movement again. Bush said more could still be done to help local banks, but he also warned against returning to bad habits and people losing interest in how banks are regulated. People should care if they want their children and grandchildren to get out of their house and be able to buy their own someday, he said. If you dont want your child living in your basement or out house until theyre 35, you need banks to be able to lend them some money, so you can kick them out. rrffrnt bf tftt rfn tbrb b r nrb rbb rtrbn r b f bfrbb ftb f nrr tt n fr rrr t tbnrb ff r tfrr rrn tb frb nrf r rn tbrb b r rrf rbrnrb fb bt rrn rbrr rbrr br Food safety should be a focus from start to nish, from shopping to cooking to serving to storing.

Lafayette Ben Massey, Adam Perry, Mark Crum, Ritchy James, Keiwan Reid, Austyn Lee Lafayette standout Ben Massey begins his nal high school season. Massey, a rst-team all state selection a year ago, will play on both sides of the ball and special teams. Hell play defensive back, return kicks and punts and look to have another big year at receiver. In 2017, Massey had 777 yards receiv ing and 13 touchdowns. Juniors Adam Perry and Mark Crum, who combined for eight catches and three touchdowns a year ago, should see an increased role in the offense. Keiwan Reid had a good summer and will be a player to watch. LHS basketball player Ritchy James is playing football for the rst time and gives Lafayette options with his athleticism and 6-foot-2 frame.

Children may have their own ideas of whats in style, but parents should look for backpacks that are functional before factoring in style. Marrying form and function together can be challenging, but its necessary to prevent students from developing back problems. But parents must give consideration to more than just the size of their childrens backpacks. Backpacks may be lled with several pounds of stu, such as textbooks, binders, laptops, and other supplies, potentially leading to injury. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, at least 14,000 children are treated for backpack-related injuries every year. e American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons says that the weight of a backpack should not exceed 10 to 15 percent of a childs body weight.
