Kiss Winner rfrnntbn nff nfnnft fnnnt rtnn n nff LIVE OAK The Suwannee River Jam Audition for only bands produced four winning bands Saturday night. The bands advance straight to performing at the Jam from May 2-5 at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. Four bands auditioned and all four where so good it was decided to invite them all to play the Jam to the delight of the audience. All four bands, Ricky Valido Band (Hialeah), Kellen Vincent Band (Lake City), Snake Blood Remedy (OBrien) and Cole Tomlinson Band (Blackshear, Ga.) will per form at the Jam. The Music Parks Steve Briscoe, who heads up the auditions, asked the audience what they thought about sending all four to the Jam, and the roar of approval was deaf ening. The smiles on the faces of all four band leaders who had been called to the stage were pure happiness. Kellen Vincent, a well-known area country music performer who once was called to the stage by Larry Gatlin who then handed Kellen his own guitar and asked him to perform, brought his talent ed new band and performed first. Thirty minutes and lots of country music later the band had its spot at the Jam. The Ricky Valido Band opened several years ago for the Jam on a Wednesday night in the Music Hall to great accolades but the band had to return to the Miami area for other dates afterward. This year, it decided to go for the gold and try to spend all four days at the Jam. Ricky Valido, 25, known as the Cuban Cowboy, and his band, The Hialeah Hillbillies, came on stage second with musi cal fever, never let up the entire 30 minutes onstage, solidifying its place as a winner. With a change of pace the au dience didnt see coming, Snake Blood Remedy, a 7-piece band from Suwannee County, was third to perform and brought tremen dous old country with drums, guitars, a fiddle and a voice with the sound of Hanks Williams. SBR leader J. D. Cook delighted the au dience with his bands presentation of old country and some newer music and attracting many to the dance floor. Last but definitely not least, Cole Tomlinson, 16 and about six feet, six inches tall, of Blackshear, Ga., was the man in black with sensational musicians, most of whom are Tomlinsons age. Cov ering new, old and some of the bands own music, it was instantly clear this band was needed at the Jam. This will be Tomlinsons second Jam appearance, the first coming as a solo singer. Joining these four bands at the Jam will be the Sondra Hunt Band (Lake Butler) and Southern Burn Band (Gainesville) and any others who may become winners at the fi nal audition March 10 for solo and duo singers and bands in the SOS MPs Music Hall. All solo and duo winners will audition one more time April 13 where winners cho sen that night will go to the Jam. Solo and duo winners thus far are Ashley Holbrook (Or ange Park), Cliff Dorsey (High Springs), Austin Harden (Lake Butler), Brittanie Powell (Live Oak), Hallie Davis (Jacksonville and Jasper), Jimmie Coleman (Jacksonville), wild card winner Richard Scarborough (Winder mere) and two duos of Bryan James (Oviedo) and Al Enzian (High Springs) and a duo of Karlie Scott Collins and Alex Sandlin (Lake City).

Crawford presented a program, Camellia Grow ing, Planting, and Whats New, to the Garden Club members and guests at its Garden Center.

Irish Proverb I am really lucky when it comes to having amazing friends. These friends include best friends from childhood that span 50 years to those I have made in the past 10 years. Good friends that I cannot imagine living my life without them in it. I also will never take them for granted. It is equally important that I be as amazing of a friend to them as they have been to me. As we get older, we tend to be a bit more selective about who we choose to spend our time with. We are wiser and know when to sh or when to cut bait. I love that saying because it makes so much sense. In other words, we want to spend time with people that we LIKE versus those that bring drama to our lives. Some times you need to walk away from those people. Good friends can help you live a healthier life too. They may stop you from doing things you shouldnt like drinking and driving or nag us to quit smoking. In our hearts, we know we shouldnt do these things. Sometimes it is that little tap on the shoulder from a friend that keeps us from doing them when our will power isnt enough. Our friends also help us stay on track with good habits like exer cise. The morning tness class for seniors I teach Silver Sneakers has the most amazing group of people I have ever met. And I am very proud to call them all friends. This class continues to grow larger and larger every week. Why? Many of these amazing people bring their friends with them to class. Those friends continue and bring their friends to class. Friends supporting friends. Morning classes, both Silver Sneakers and Water Aerobics, are some of the largest classes I have seen not only in Live Oak but in many gyms Ive attend ed in the past. Thats a powerful thing. Do you know what contributes to these large classes? We are social creatures and that includes friends keeping friends accountable. Taking the importance of friendship even further, study after study after study has shown that good health and strong social support are connected. Great reason to value friendships. Here are a few others: Why? People who have friends are less likely to die early than those who are isolated. Friends check on us to make sure we are okay. and bad. Did you know that if you have active friends, you are more likely to is also true. If your friends tend to put a few pounds on, you may too. tough times. Lean on me. When youre not strong. And Ill be your friend. Ill help you carry on. Bill Withers. Love that song. Friends are there to help you pick up the pieces and move forward. Its never too late. Reconnect with old friends, make new friends and strength en those friendships you have. Not only will you reap the social benets, you may have better health in the future. Have a great week!

SEE GETTING, PAGE 10A It has been so warm this last bit of February that I decided to hitch up the boat and head out to the Suwan nee River to ride around and maybe jump in a spring or two. Well I have good news and bad news to report. The good news is that the river is so high around Royal Springs that you do not need to worry about hitting the many rocks that are usually pres ent in that part of the river. The bad news is that the river level is on its way down and those who are new to boating in the Suwannee need to go with someone who knows the river or risk bending your prop learning where the rocks are located. The even better news is that the river level is perfect for spring hopping in the many springs the feed the Su wannee. There was a decent crowd at Royal Springs this past Sunday. The spring was an incredible blue color that you just have to see for yourself. I love watching where the clear spring water runs into the tea-colored river. I got to see the unique dance of the mixing waters at three different springs Sunday. After putting the boat in at Royal Springs and motoring upriver, I arrived at Convict Springs in no time. There were a few folks shing along the bank and a couple of canoes were heading towards the boat ramp as I idled by. I stopped the boat and walked up the short spring run to see the spring. It was just as clear as Royal and not nearly as crowded. The water was very cold so I did not stay there long before continuing my journey. I continued up river to Bathtub Springs. The clear, cold water was rushing over the center area of the wall some one made long ago to keep the bathtub level a little high er than it otherwise would be. Here I found the solitude I was looking for. I parked the boat and walked around to the side of the spring. It is sometimes nice to just be in a place and hear the rushing water without any other voices or distracting sounds. After a few peaceful minutes, I got in my boat but did not start the motor. I decided to just oat part of the way back. There are so many things I am looking forward to in March. Spring Break is coming up for the students and teachers, the fair is coming to town after that, and the music festivals will be starting up again at the Spirit of the Suwannee. I am also hopeful that the river will stay near this ideal level as the temperature continues to rise. This is a beautiful time of year in a beautiful place. Get out there and enjoy it. *****Correction****** In my column last week I was incorrect when I stated Connecticut armed its teachers after the Sandy Hook shooting. Several states did make that decision after the tragedy, but Connecticut was not one of them. The town of Eneld, Connecticut, decided to use retired cops as school security after Sandy Hook. That program was dis continued in 2015. Eric lives in Suwannee County and is a public school educator. He is an independent contractor. You can reach him at miamistyle8@gmail.com. Opinion SERVING SUWANNEE COUNTY SINCE 1884 A PAGE 6 rfrfnftrbfbf ftfrrbfbf Spring is beautiful around the Suwannee A liberal-created failure that goes entirely ignored is the lefts harmful agenda for societys most vulnerable people the mentally ill. Eastern State Hospital, built in 1773 in Wil liamsburg, Virginia, was the rst public hospital in America for the care and treatment of the mentally ill. Many more followed. Much of the motivation to build more mental institutions was to provide a remedy for the maltreatment of mentally ill people in our prisons. According to professor William Gronfein at Indiana University-Pur due University Indianapolis, by 1955 there were nearly 560,000 patients housed in state mental institutions across the nation. By 1977, the population of mental institutions had dropped to about 160,000 patients. Starting in the 1970s, advocates for closing mental hospitals argued that because of the availability of new psychotropic drugs, people with mental illness could live among the rest of the population in an unrestrained natural setting. According to a 2013 Wall Street Journal article by Dr. E. Fuller Torrey, founder of the Treatment Advocacy Center, titled Fifty Years of Failing Ameri cas Mentally Ill, shutting down mental hospitals didnt turn out the way advocates promised. Several studies summarized by the Treatment Advocacy Center show that untreated mentally ill are responsible for 10 percent of homicides (and a higher percentage of the mass kill ings). They are 20 percent of jail and prison inmates and more than 30 percent of the homeless. We often encounter these severely mentally ill individ uals camped out in libraries, parks, hospital emergency rooms and train stations and sleeping in cardboard boxes. They annoy passers-by with their sometimes intimidating panhandling. The disgusting quality of life of many of the mentally ill makes a mockery of the lofty predictions made by the advocates of shutting down mental institu tions and transferring their function to community mental health centers, or CMHCs. Torrey writes: The evidence is overwhelming that this federal experiment has failed, as seen most recently in the mass shootings by mentally ill individuals in Newtown, Conn., Aurora, Colo., and Tucson, Ariz. It is time for the federal government to get out of this business and return the responsibility, and funds, to the states. Getting the federal government out of the mental health business may be easier said than done. A 1999 U.S. Su preme Court ruling in the case of Olmstead v. L.C. held that under the Americans with Disabilities Act, individ uals with mental disabilities have the right to live in an integrated community setting rather than in institutions. The U.S. Department of Justice dened an integrated setting as one that enables individuals with disabilities to interact with non-disabled persons to the fullest extent possible. Though some mentally ill people may have beneted from this ruling, many others were harmed not to mention the public, which must put up with the behavior of the mentally ill. Torrey says it has now become politically correct to claim that this federal program failed because not enough centers were funded and not enough money was spent. But thats not true. Torrey says: Altogether, the annual total public funds for the support and treatment of men tally ill individuals is now more than $140 billion. The equivalent expenditure in 1963 when President John F. Kennedy proposed the CMHC program was $1 billion, or about $10 billion in todays dollars. Even allowing for the increase in U.S. population, what we are getting for this 14-fold increase in spending is a disgrace. The dollar cost of this liberal vision of deinstitutional ization of mentally ill people is a relatively small part of the burden placed on society. Many innocent people have been assaulted, robbed and murdered by mentally ill peo ple. Businesspeople and their customers have had to cope with the nuisance created by the mentally ill. The police response to misbehavior and crime committed by the mentally ill is to arrest them. Thus, they are put in jeopar dy of mistreatment by hardened criminals in the nations jails and prisons. Worst of all is the fact that the liberals who engineered the shutting down of mental institutions have never been held accountable for their folly. Walter E.

Was it a leak? A planned release? A road construction break? Neighbors conrmed it was north of 208th Street at the south edge of Suwannee Farms, where the Florida Gas Transmission (FGT) natural gas pipeline branches west under CR 349 and the Suwan nee River. Thursday morning I called the National Re sponse Center (NRC), 1-800-424-8802, listed by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Ad ministration (PHMSA). Suwannee County Emergency Management said they knew nothing and would send somebody out right away. The neighbors had not been notied. FGTs Informational Postings required by the Federal En ergy Regulatory Commission (FERC) had nothing related. Yet locals saw FGT trucks Wednesday near CR 349 road construction. For an update I got bounced through NRC to EPA in Atlanta, the Florida Department of En vironmental Protection (FDEP) in Tallahassee, FDEP Ofce of Emergency Response (closed), and FDEP Northeast Region, Are you calling about Wal-Mart? FERC and FDEP permitted these pipelines: why should Suwannee County and local landowners and taxpayers be left to deal with leaks? Meanwhile, Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, Sierra Clubs Organizing Representative working in north Florida, had called her PHMSA contact, who was not at his computer, his computer was down, and eventually another PHMSA person gave her a report led by me. She was still asking for a dif ferent report number as I wrote this.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 7A State & Region rfn jason.smith@gaflnews.com VALDOSTA, Ga. The heart is the engine that drives the body. When a car engine starts having is sues, it need a diagnosis to determine whats going wrong. The same can be said of the heart. A sputtering heart could mean clogged arteries, abnormal rhythms, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or a myriad of issues that range from mi nor to life threatening. Thousands of people go to the hos pital every year for cardiovascular-re lated illnesses in the SunLight Project area of Live Oak, Jasper and Mayo Fla., and Valdosta, Thomasville, Moul trie, Dalton, Tifton and Milledgeville, Ga. At the Archbold Memorial Hospital in Thomasville, Archbolds Loudermilk Heart and Vascular Center catheteriza tion lab performs more than 1,000 cath eterizations each year. Catheterization is the process of us ing a long, thin tube called a catheter, to diagnose or treat cardiovascular con ditions. In 2015, the lab performed the pro cedures on 742 males, and 539 females for a total of 1,281 people, according to the hospital. In 2016, the lab performed the procedures on 752 males, and 546 females for a total of 1,298. In 2017, the lab performed heart catheters on 867 males and 585 females for a total of 1,452. The Tift Regional Health System saw 1,181 people in 2017, according to the hospital. The demographics of visits were broken down as follows: South Georgia Medical Center in Valdosta performed 177 heart and valve surgeries in 2014, according to the hospital. In 2015, there were 287 total surgeries. In 2016, there were 249 total surgeries performed. And like an engine, heart problems can crop up at any time, and sometimes with few prior symptoms. Stressing the Heart Chris Mohr, 64, of Thomasville and her granddaughter were en route to Sa who was driving, had a heart attack. We had just left Valdosta, hadnt gotten very far, Mohr said. I felt this extreme pressure in my chest. I had a hard time breathing. A deep ache began in her left arm. She considered returning to Thom asville, but the trip to her granddaugh ters college open house was too im portant to turn back. Mohr, who is the Thomasville Times-Enterprise general manager, met her daughter in Savannah. The symp toms returned. I climbed stairs, Mohr said. I did all the wrong things. She went to a Savannah hospital emergency room, where an electrocar diogram showed irregularities. Mohr was told she should be admitted to the hospital. She refused, returned to Thomasville the next day, a Sunday, and went to work Monday. That same Monday she saw her Thomasville physician. Forty-five sec onds into a stress test, Mohrs doctor put her in a wheelchair and took her to the nearby Archbold Memorial Hospital emergency room. A heart attack was confirmed, and Mohr was hospitalized, she said. She had no previous signs of a heart prob lem. However, Mohr was under a tre mendous amount of stress: Her father had died, and her mother had been diagnosed with cancer and was under Mohrs care. She had been transferred in her work. Today, Mohr is conscious of stress levels. Her diet is better and she exer cises. She married Michael Mohr in August 2016 a union Mohr said has signifi cantly reduced her stress level. I have to take five pills a day now to keep my heart healthy and will have to the rest of my life, Mohr said. The stress and resulting heart attack taught her a lesson. I dont try to do it all anymore, she said. Defining Heart Attack Dr. Anil Puri, a pulmonologist in win Hospital who also practices crit ical-care medicine, internal medicine and sleep medicine, spoke about what causes a heart attack. Heart attacks are generally caused by blockages in the arteries that leave the heart, what we call the coronary arteries leads to a decrease, or lack of blood flow to the muscle of the heart, and then the muscle of the heart starts to die. There are modifiable and non-mod ifiable risk factors when it comes to heart disease. Modifiable risk factors, are things in a persons life they have control over, or can be modified. The main risk factors for heart dis ease are usually things like smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol and obesity, Puri said. Those would be the most modifiable factors that people should go to their doctors office to get checked out for. things a person cannot change such as age and family history. Genetics absolutely is a factor, Puri said. Age, genetics and race can be factors. Of course, those are not modifiable factors, so from a preven tion standpoint, theres not much you can do about those. Heart of Genetics issues run in the family. Heart disease runs in my family, attack when he was 54. preemptively to try and prevent heart issues. When I reached my 50s, I started making an extra effort to live a healthy 54th birthday, my chest started hurting. I thought it was just a pulled muscle, but after describing my symptoms to a friend, she said, Youre having a heart attack. I didnt believe it, but I went to Hamilton Medical Centers emergency department just to make sure. Dr. Gary Olson of Hamilton Physi cian Group-Cardiology performed a stress test and heart catheterization, and Dr. Eric Guerra, also of Hamilton Physician Group-Cardiology, inserted two stents to restore blood flow. After the procedure, I was able to been able to breathe that well in years. After a short recovery, I began attend ing classes through Hamiltons cardiac rehabilitation program. I graduated from the program in December of last year and I now exercise three times a week. For others that are not predisposed to heart diseases, modifiable risk factors cant be mitigated or removed through a change in lifestyle. The recognition that (people) have lifestyle factors that are modifiable and that theyre interested in modifying is probably the biggest first step, Puri said. Once they feel like thats some thing they want to do, meeting with a health-care provider and discussing and developing a plan of action actually trying to lose weight, something to help them stop smoking, checking their cho lesterol. Either educating themselves on a low-cholesterol diet, or a low-salt diet if their blood pressure is high these are all good things that can be done. Knowing the Symptoms a lifestyle, knowing the symptoms of a heart attack is life-saving knowledge. I think probably the most obvious sign would be chest pain, particularly in the center of the chest or on the left side of the chest, Puri said. Any pain that radiates into the neck or into the left area. If someone has sudden onset of feeling faint or breaking out into a sweat or feels nauseated Particularly if symptoms seem to be worsened when the patient exerts them selves. Other signs arent so obvious but can be noticed during a period of time, said Dr. William Luke, an interventional cardiologist in Valdosta. fort, particularly exertional chest dis comfort, can be warning signs, Luke said. Exertional chest pain is pain as a result of exerting effort, such as lifting heavy objects. A recent reduction of exercise capac ity is a warning sign as well, Luke said. Which may manifest itself via exertion al shortness of breath or being easily fatigued. Luke advises patients to be in touch with their state of wellness. Most pa tients are generally aware of when some sort of change happens in their body, and those changes could be early warning signs that something is wrong. Asking our patients to not minimize or overlook a change in how they feel is always important, Luke said. Luke said to exercise regularly and use it as a litmus test as far as what your physical expectations should be. In 30 minutes, if you walked a mile in 30 minutes, and you did it effort lessly, and now you are walking 15, 20 minutes, and now you are short of breath, that is definitely a warning sign and you should seek professional medi cal attention, he said. Jackie Devane, 64, had noticed slight changes in what she was capable of do ing for a several years, but attributed it to age and diabetes. Devane was doing yard work when she lifted a rock and turned it over. About a week later, she started to have pains, she said. Devane assumed the pain was soreness from moving the rock. I thought it was me lifting a lot out side, she said. Down across my chest to the other side and down my side, there was pain. I went to the hospital and they told me I had a heart attack.

Thank you, Suwannee Board of County Com missioners, for voting November 11, 2015, to oppose the Sabal Trail pipeline. And for approving April 18, 2017, Duke Energy Florida (DEF)s 8.8 megawatt (MW) Suwannee Solar Farm. DEF is also building a 75MW Hamilton Solar Farm next to Sabal Trail, plus nine more. Two such farms will produce more electricity than the gas tur bines left in Suwannee County, with jobs in planning, delivery, and installation. The solar farms Duke has built in South and North Carolina produce more electricity than DEFs Suwannee or Crystal River gas plants ever would. Yet DEF is still ling to stop the DC Circuit Courts mandate to shut down the Sabal Trail pipeline. Is there less sunshine in Florida than in the Carolinas? Have you ever heard of a solar farm leaking or exploding? Suwannee Riverkeeper John S. Quarterman is president of WWALS Watershed Coalition, Inc. Continued From Page 6A Getting Townsend felt the pull to make sleeping mats at the end of last year. When she was browsing Facebook, she discovered a post about making sleep ing mats out of plastic bags. To make the mats, plas tic bags are cut into strips and tied together to make plarn or plastic yarn. The plarn is crocheted to make the mat. Townsend said it takes 700 plastic bags to make a six-foot tall mat with two cinch straps and a carry handle. We have such a re quest for mats, Townsend said, adding she is trying to make enough to get mats in every patrol car. Mabel Graham attended the class. It is something I can do and give back to the community, Graham said. Jean Ross said she will start with making plarn and see how that goes. It is a wonderful idea, Ross said. Peggy Compa was in terested in the potential of making things out of plastic bags. Plastic bags are still needed. Bags can be dropped off at Live Oak Police Department or at Initially Yours Em broidery at 13705 104th Street, Live Oak. Continued From Page 1A Residents U.S. Department of Trans portations Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration also said the incident was just a planned blowdown (vent ing). John Quarterman, the Suwannee Riverkeeper and president of the WWALS Watershed Coalition, Inc., led a report with the Na tional Response Center on Thursday morning about the incident. Darius Kirkwood, with the PHMSA, said that while a report was led, there was no incident. As a result of some one reporting it, the state ofcials responded, Kirk wood said. But again, it was just a planned venting. I think someone that wasnt aware it was hap pening just heard it and called it in. That must have been why there was an in cident report. That is not the case. A spokesperson for En ergy Transfer, which oper ates the FGT pipeline, said any reports of a leak were not accurate. What they may have heard was our blowdown activity related to main tenances that was per formed, Public Relations Specialist Alexis Daniel said in an email. Daniel said that while not a regular occurrence, the blowdowns are con ducted when needed for maintenance. She also said that landowners near the pipeline and local ofcials were notied of the blow down.

We have to start out small with our scholar ships, Pageant Director Diane Walker-Saunders said. The deadline to register is March 14. rf rfntbbbrb b LAKE CITY Feb ruary was National Chil drens Dental Health Month. The American Dental Association spon sors National Childrens Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. Locally, the United Way of Suwannee Valley and the Florida Department of Health in Columbia, Ham ilton, Suwannee and La fayette counties partnered to distribute a dental care kit to every elementary school student to promote the importance of good oral care. Dental cavities are one of the most common chronic conditions of childhood in the Unit ed States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Untreated tooth decay can cause pain and infections that may lead to problems with eating, speaking, playing and learning, the CDC says. In fact, good oral hygiene is essential for overall health. The United Way of Suwannee Valley Plan ning Committee elected to utilize funds received through an anonymous grant to partner with the Department of Health in each of the four counties in the local United Ways service area. United Way and the Department of Health are partnering on several projects utilizing the anonymous grant funds and supporting the county health improvement plans. It is customary for the De partment of Health in these counties to participate in National Childrens Dental Health Month annually; however, due to a lack of nancial resources this year, the United Way Plan ning Committee undertook the dental health initiative to provide the supplies. The National Childrens Dental Health Month slo gan for this year is Brush your teeth with uoride toothpaste, and clean between your teeth for a healthy smile. Each of the components to accom plish this were provided in the dental care kits. Each elementary school child received a free dental kit containing toothpaste, a toothbrush and oss. More than 8,000 dental care kits were distributed to school children throughout the four counties. United Way, DOH partner for National Childrens Health Month The age divisions are Toddler Miss (age 2-3), Little Miss (age 4-7), Preteen Miss (age 7-12), Teen Miss (age 13-15) and Miss (age 16-18). The application is available online at www. suwanneerivercatfishfes tival.com. The 4th Annual Catfish Festival will be held Sat urday, April 14, at Gre enway Park in Branford. There will be a kids catfish tournament and an adult bass tournament. The festival will start at 9 a.m. with different vendors, music perfor mances, a 5K run and food. The winners of this years essay contest will be announced at the fes tival. Two $500 scholar ships will be given to the winners. The essay must be related to the history of Branford, the Suwannee River and the people who made an impact on both. The contest is open to any senior in Suwannee County.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2018 SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK PAGE 11A my sugar diabetes or something. On Nov. 6, 2017, Devane went to South Georgia Medical Center. The doctors performed a triple-bypass sur gery to help Devane get back on track. It was a little bit on the scary side she said. I just didnt know what was going to happen. I thought it was lit tle bit of soreness. Really, the scariest problem I had was when I got out of the surgery, I couldnt move. They had me paralyzed. They did that I reckon to keep me from moving and all. She was released from the hospital Nov. 15, 2017. Devane continued going to the hospi tals rehabilitation center after she was released to walk on a treadmill and ride a stationary bicycle, she said. Now that Devane is out of the hospi tal, she walks regularly and feels much better. After I got out of there, I have so much energy now. I dont know what to do with myself, she said. Change of Heart Ultimately, changing ones lifestyle can help prevent or minimize heart dis ease throughout the SunLight Project area of Valdosta, Thomasville, Moul trie, Dalton, Tifton and Milledgeville, Ga., and Live Oak, Fla. The changes that can be made include exercise regularly, eat well and cut extraneous bad habits such as tobacco and alcohol abuse. For exercise, Dr. William Luke of Valdosta recommends routine aerobic exercise for at least 30 minutes, five days a week. What I would consider routine aer obic exercise is walking around your neighborhood, Luke said. Knowing what to eat is an important part of how to have a healthy heart. We are a reflection of what we eat, said Dr. Eric Guerra, Hamilton Physi cian Group-Cardiology. We need to eat a healthy diet. That means plenty of vegetables, more fruits. The meat we eat should be lean chicken, fish, turkey. When I talk about fish, I dont mean catfish but salmon, tilapia and fish like that. We need to exercise regularly and keep our weight under control. We need to make sure our blood pressure is good. If you have diabetes, you need to keep that under control. Eating a healthy diet will help with that. We need to keep our cholesterol under control. Dr. Anil Puri, pulmonologist in Milledgeville at Navicent Health Bald win Hospital, gave a description of what not to eat. Generally speaking, the foods that would be high in what we call satu rated fats, Puri said. The foods that are high in cholesterol put you at a higher risk for high cholesterol. Foods that are rich in sodium can elevate ones blood pressure. Generally speak ing, foods that may be high in sugars can lead to weight gain. Those can also be a problem. Exercise and eating healthy can help mitigate heart health issues, but having a primary physician that one meets with regularly can go a long way. I dont think theres any definitive recommendation, like you know, on your 50th birthday, you should go and get checked out I think, generally speaking, what I would say is folks are never too young to keep tabs on their weight and their blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol, Puri said. For Luke, seeing his patients regular ly builds a sense of accountability, he said. When a patient sets a goal to lose weight, eat better, exercise more or to quit smoking, and they come in for a regular appointment, it gives Luke the chance to ask about the patients prog ress. And while not every check-up has a positive response, Luke related it to a report card from school, he said. How a student wants to make their parents feel when they come home with a progress report. Its the same for me when I check their cholesterol, when I ask them if theyve quit smoking or lost weight, Luke said. They are excited to share that news, or the positive lifestyle changes they have made. Having Heart Attacks For Donnie Hester, a Tift county commissioner, began having chest pains while he was singing at a Watch Night Service on New Years Eve. I started feeling pain coming straight down, he said, tracing a line down his chest. A nurse attending the service checked his blood pressure, which was high. By the time 911 was called and Tift County EMS arrived, his blood pressure bottomed out and Hester was transported to the hospital. When youre not educated enough to know whats going on and what the warning signs are, you dont know, Hester said. I didnt know. The next day, the doctor came to me and said, Youve been having heart attacks. By Jan. 3, Hester was undergoing open-heart surgery. It was four and a half hours, he said, referring to the length of the sur gery, which ended up being a quadru ple bypass. Hester kept saying he didnt know the warning signs. I just didnt know, he said. Id be washing my car and be short of breath and Id think that I was just tired. Id wake up hot and think I was having hot flashes or something. I just didnt know. He strongly advocates people educat ing themselves about what the warning signs for a heart attack are and not brushing off heart-related issues. You dont have to be old, he said. I never had heart problems. Id never been sick. He had been having problems with high blood pressure, but he had been taken off that medication because hed been doing well. He doesnt smoke or drink, and said he never ate a lot of bad Continued From Page 7A State & Region rfntbff foods. He is going to start walking and ex ercising more, but he said he should be doing better than he was before, and said he plans on running for reelection this year. The heart is a main thing, he said. If Id have gone home that night, I might have had a major heart attack and Id have been gone. He said he is very thankful the doc tors, nurses and EMTs were there and able to help him, and thanked God for putting them where they were. Hester said he wants to donate more time to the American Heart Associa tions efforts in the future. People have been talking about this for years, he said. People dont change until theyre personally affect ed. The SunLight Project team of jour nalists who contributed to this report includes Jason A.

Sports SUWANNEE DEMOCRAT /LIVE OAK WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2018 Braun, McQuay earn all-state honors LIVE OAK Suwannee Highs Josh Braun and Bran fords Aaron McQuay have been recognized by FloridaHS Football.com as top performers in the state. They were named to the 2017 All-State Football Team as honorable mentions. Braun, a 6-foot-7, 315-pound tackle for the Class 5A Bulldogs, continues to add to an already impressive resume. Braun was named a Pre season All-American by maxpreps.com in his rst two seasons at SHS and was part of the MaxPreps Freshman All-American team for his performance in 2016. In 2017, as a sophomore, he dominated up front to help a power-running Suwannee team average about ve yards per carry. McQuay accounted for nearly half of Branfords yards on offense and scored almost half of the Buccaneers touchdowns. The junior back rushed 163 times for 1,135 yards and 11 touchdowns. He paced the Class 1A Buccaneers to a 5-5 record, which was their best nish in seven years. rf rfntbb bbb rn b Boss wins SEC high jump title COLLEGE STATION, Texas Logan Boss continues to shine and collect hard ware. The Suwannee High grad and Mississippi State senior high jumper claimed the SEC Championship with a meet record of 1.91m (6-3.25 feet) on Sunday afternoon at Texas A&M. Boss school record of 1.92m (6-3.5) set earlier this season is the third-highest ever by an SEC athlete. Things seem to come together well for me here, she said. I got third at nationals last year, a personal-best, that was kind of where it all started coming together. I was happy to come back because I like jumping here. Boss attempted to jump 1.94m, the mark needed to enter interna tional competition and set an SEC record, but she came up short. It appeared she had cleared on her second try, but the bar wobbled on its pedestals before eventually falling. I want that 1.94m because thats the mark you need to hit as a high jumper, but it was close, so close, Boss said. It just gives me a little condence boost that I know I can do it again, maybe in two weeks. Branford bats fall cold in 7-0 loss michael.jones@ganews.com BRANFORD With Fort White pitcher Tyler Shelnut hit ting his spots and keeping hitters off-balance, Branford never got comfortable at the plate Thurs day. The Buccaneers had just two hits and let a close game slip away and turn into a lopsided 7-0 loss. We didnt make an adjust ment, BHS coach Alex OQuinn said of his teams offensive ap proach. The only hard hit ball was late in the game. We pitched well enough to win the ballgame. Shelnut didnt allow a hit in ve innings pitched and re corded eight strikeouts. The sophomore left the game after throwing just 63 pitches. Facing a new pitcher in the sixth, the Buccaneers nally broke up the no-hitter in the sixth inning off a bloop single from Clay Wil liams. Dylan Kelley had the other hit for Branford a double in the seventh. Even as Shelnut was cruising, Branford trailed just 1-0 after ve innings and had an oppor tunity to win because of a solid start from ace Tyler Whiteld (4 IP, 3 Ks, 1 run). But three errors in the nal two innings helped FWHS pull away. The train derailed at the end, OQuinn said. But its early. Weve got a lot of time to get better. BHS track teams defeat Newberry michael.jones@ganews.com BRANFORD The Bran ford High track teams had a strong showing in the rst meet of the season. Both teams won the home meet Thursday against Newberry the boys by a score of 107-26 and the girls won 102-30.

But while kids and young adults might be able to get away with an extra cheeseburger here or there, men and women approaching 50 have less leeway. According to the National Institute on Aging, simply counting calories without regard for the foods being consumed is not enough for men and women 50 and older to maintain their long-term health. Rather, the NIA emphasizes the importance of choosing low-calorie foods that have a lot of the nutrients the body needs. But counting calories can be an eective and simple way to maintain a healthy weight, provided those calories are coming from nutrient-rich foods. e NIA advises men and women over 50 adhere to the following daily calorie intake recommendations as they attempt to stay healthy into their golden years. Women Men When choosing foods to eat, the NIA recommends eating many dierent colors and types of vegetables and fruits. Phytochemicals are substances that occur naturally in plants, and there are thousands of these substances oering various benets. e Produce for Better Health Foundation notes that a varied, colorful diet incorporates lots of dierent types of phytochemicals, which the PBH says have disease-preventing properties. e NIA also advises that men and women over 50 make sure at least half the grains in their diets are whole grains. Numerous studies have discovered the various benets of whole grains, which are loaded with protein, ber, antioxidants and other nutrients. Whole diabetes, heart disease and some types of cancer. Another potential hurdle men and women over 50 may encounter is a change in their sense of smell and taste. A persons sense of smell may fade with age, and because smell and taste are so closely related, foods enjoyed for years may no longer tantalize the taste buds. at can be problematic, as many people instinctually add more salt to foods they Health Promotion, older adults should consume no more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day. at equates to roughly 3 teaspoon of add avor to foods, instead opting for healthy foods that they can still smell and taste. In addition, men and women should mention any loss of their sense of smell to their physicians, as such a loss may indicate the presence of Parkinsons disease or Alzheimers disease. Maintaining a healthy diet aer 50 may require some hard work and discipline. But the long-term benets of a healthy diet make the extra eort well worth it. EAT HEALTHY AT 50 AND BEYOND
